How can righthandrule's post be "excellent" when its not accurate?
Whilst you may not agree with righthandrule, and you are entitled to your opinion.

How exactly is the following inaccurate.

Whilst that is a tragic story, I completely agree with the view that this is what travel insurance is for. When people are happy to book a cheap flight you accept the terms and conditions and all airlines strongly reccomendaions you take out travel insurance to cover events like this.

I cannot comment on the 'rude' staff with the 'crap attitude' but all calls are recorded and by all means pass it on that it would be investigated if a complaint was made. Staff are never intentionally rude, the full conversation will be on record. However rules are rules, and if one exception is made then why the hell would anyone ever stick to the rules again?

If there was such an issue, I would strongly suggest you complain by the official methods and not on here so something would be done about it. However Zag23, you mentioned the crap attitude of the staff, you haven't exactly set a good example on attitude they way you responded to flybar who was giving a perfectly valid answer to your post. If thats the attitude and tone the Jet2 staff wwre faced with them I'm really not surprised they were shirty. I fully understand that it can be frustrating, and yes before you have a pop at me for being insensitive, I have been in a very similar situation myself and yes we dealt with it like adults as the marvellous Thomas Cook were just as helpful as a chocolate teapot.

Just because someone is opposite in view to you and supportive of Jet2 it does not make them a cheerleader.
They are equally as entitled to their view as you are to yours.

Seems strange that both of you who are defending Jet2 (" Yorkshires Airline ") are from............Yorkshire.
Locality has NOTHING to do with this. I am defending Jet2 because it is what every other operator would have done, and like I said, this is what travel insurance is for. End of.

How can righthandrule's post be "excellent" when its not accurate? Before jumping in with your jetpooh cheerleading bit, perhaps read everything properly.
Don't know why I even bothered to post on here, if all I'm going to get is a sarcastic response to what I believed was a balanced and fair post by myself. "Jetpooh cheerleading bit" made me laugh. Like I said, if this is the kind of abuse the Jet2 staff were getting, no wonder they were not "helpful."

Perhaps you should stop insulting anyone that responds to your post, people are entitled to their opinion just as much as you are yours.

Moving on. Back to something actually related to this thread.

There are 3 aircraft in their fleet with the same name:

CELA/LSAE named 'Jet2 Newcastle'
GLSAE now has Jet2Holidays livery. It would be nice to see some of the new aircraft named after other destinations. Personally, I think there should be more of the billboard type liveries (such as GCELU etc)

Come on no RYR for me....

This forum is under the heading AIRLINES, airports & routes. Not just airplanes.

Customer service is all part of the fun of running an airline.

Seems strange that both of you who are defending Jet2 (" Yorkshires Airline ") are from............Yorkshire. Someone in authority at Jet2 could have done something but they decided not to. Yes, rules are there but TCX have rules on overweight baggage but they were swerved at TFS. Was going to use jet2 to Alicante later in the year but they will not be getting any more of my business.If you had read my post properly you would know that I did not deal with jet2 on this matter. As for flybar..........
If you don't want anybody to comment on your posts then don't post!! This is a forum! I didn't defend Jet2, I made no comment about their response to the situation. All Low Cost Carriers have similar conditions.
I pointed out that Travel Insurance would have covered this situation.
It is possible to obtain Travel Insurance if you are a senior citizen, you just have to search a bit deeper to find it. I manage to insure my 90+ Father in law when he travels with us on holiday.
I am happy to state where I live, yes I live 20 minutes from Jet2's headquarters, but I don't work for them and I don't sell insurance!

In reply to COBHC's question regarding aircraft having destination 'names' , it appears Jet2 are slowly moving away from this as the aircraft are rolling out the hangers now in Jet2 Holidays livery.

I'm not sure of why the destination names idea stopped. Maybe because the lettering on the nose was too small for any real marketing value?

I've never heard crews refer to the aircraft by their destination names, just the last letters of thier registrations.

Sometimes fondly changed to names such as 'little princess' for LP, 'always breaking' for AB, 'little 'orrible' for LO and some rather rude ones which I won't write on a public forum but you get the idea!!

I agree we don't use names, just the reg apart from the odd a/c that stands out, at easyJet UI is well known at the 'carrot', and at Ryanair we used to all know DLN as Bye Bye Baby, but only the EMA/BHX based crews.

When Jet2 introduced one of the oldest 737-800's and gave it the registration G-GDFA........ within days I heard it being called something Awful and that turned out to be true!!

Wasn't it G-GDFA the one they scrapped at LBA? I assume they found a problem that wasn't economic to fix. If I'm not mistaken it was a leased rather than owned ac so maybe the lease company made the decision.

Yes it was. They used it for spares

Yep. I wonder if they have now decided to paint all the aircraft in Jet2Holidays livery? Another two 757's have been painted in it.

It appears so, especially with the 757's but a real shame really, I like the eye catching red and silver livery far better. The Jet2 holidays livery looks cheap and tacky.

I wonder would they need to ask Allegiant permission to use it? after all they did adopt it from the leased aircraft.

Jet2 livery

I find the original Jet2 livery dated now.I much prefer the Jet2holidays colour scheme.

Maybe with the 10th anniversary looming,might be a good time for a new livery?

Jet2 expansion

Certainly looks like another year of expansion, with the Jet2 Holidays division alone, relocating to offices in Leeds city centre (Demand for Jet2 Holidays has gone through the roof over the last 12 months) as well as last weeks news of additional aircraft on the 737-300/800 fleet

Watch out for the Jet2 Holidays livery replacing the 'legacy livery'
more and more as the holiday division gets even more popular...

All very positive and encouraging and long may it continue

EMA

According to an article in today's Derby Telegraph, the Jet2 CE says that EMA will have 5 based aircraft this summer.
