Have to agree, could we not just make passports be earned / respected rather than just given away and confiscated if it was felt that in a situation you had let the side down so to speak. I speak as a dual national (Swiss / UK) and have to say that I have yet to see or hear of any issues with Swiss flights being diverted in similar circumstances . However we can have some what tragic matrimonial issues with assault rifles for all concerned, so Rolex land is not perfect by a long way !

Nothing to do with the Daily Mail

I think you would find that an EU wide flight ban would be challenged in the ECHR on the grounds that it restricted the rights of free movement that all European citizens enjoy, an individual airline is of course free to chose who it decides to serve or not.

Lets just see if Mr Marshall quietly pays up or decided to ignore/fight Jet2 invoice for costs, if Jet2 have served him any alcohol on board then i suspect Jet2 would fail at court. They would also have to prove that the diversion was necessary, not a knee jerk reaction by the Captain to the CC complaining about some one supping their own alcohol, a court might find it contradictory that someone is allowed to drink alcohol on board, but only if it was bought on board.

I am not in anyway defending this idiot, but short of making flights a no alcohol flight its very difficult to get balance right for both the airline and passenger, but unless your flying on a Privilege aircraft, few would see flying in single class a privilege these days......

Mute point, but you are not restricting freedom of movement as you still have land and sea option, only the flying option, which although making life difficult does not impede travel. As for the call to divert I believe that the Captains decision as to if he / she feels that the passenger causes a clear threat to plane or passengers would override any other concern. I take the point on the alcohol possibly being bought on board or Duty Free being consumed on board, however I would think this would still be overruled by captains decision on security of plane/ passengers / crew.

They've done the same as TOM and TCX and cancelled all flights to Tunisia until at least 31 Oct. This follows the change in advice from the FCO to "the Foreign and Commonwealth Office now advise against all but essential travel to Tunisia"

https://www.gov.uk/foreign-travel-advice/tunisia

in fact the Jet2 site now has:
Jet2.com and Jet2holidays made the decision earlier this week to stop selling flights and holidays to Tunisia for the remainder of 2015 and summer 2016.

If they were proposing to go long haul the B767s would be ideal but there isn’t any indication that they will and from the report below, they are saying that long haul isn’t in their plans:

Special Report: Jet2 tops million customer mark with traditional package strategy
Special Report: Jet2 tops million customer mark with traditional package strategy - www.travelweekly.co.uk

The operator continues to grow and, according to chief executive Steve Heapy, it will continue to “focus on what it does best – package holidays you can trust”, rather than branching into long-haul or “unnecessary expansion” in the south.

I thought they might of given the long haul a bash, they seem to know their stuff, plus if they bought them out right no lease charges on them either, they could operate them for shorter distances like your turkeys and Greece's

EK7.... Just had an e mail pushing Girona big style - I don't think that was on the schedule so perhaps it was the only place in Spain where a slot was available.

Think they might have missed the boat with LH as TCX are sweeping all
from far and wide judging by their loads ex MAN

As an employee of Jet2 I'm glad they're not looking at getting into long haul. Much as I'd love them to branch out and expand into different areas, the company is only making £40m profit a year, much of which could be wiped out expanding into long haul, where the costs can quickly rack up with tech aircraft and so on. I don't know how much the long haul adds to Thomas Cook's bottom line, but they're still a loss making company at the moment. The aircraft may be full but when you compare their prices to Thomson and Virgin you can see why.

G-CELA has completed air tests out of Dublin over the past couple of days and was ferried back to Leeds late last night.

Dart Group have announced their preliminary unaudited results for the year up to 31 March 2015. Group turnover increased 12%, whilst underlying Group operating profit increased 3%.

After accounting for an exceptional provision of £17.0m, in relation to possible passenger compensation claims for historical flight delays under Regulation (EC) No 261/2004, Group profit before tax, fell by 5% to £40.2m (2014: £42.1m).
Still, a very impressive group profit, especially given the rise in EU261 claims.
