Our household doesnt agree ! The Mrs swears she'll never use Jet2 again. I realise these companies need our money and issuing refunds would cripple them, but we never agreed to being an interst free loan company to them. I am not as fussy, I'll want a holiday as soon as and dont want Jet2 ( or others ) go bust really, so keeping my money doesnt bother me...Jet2's accessibility and taking then fully balance knowing the holiday would not be going ahead has driven the Mrs crazy....and no doubt thousands of others.

So who will you use then, no other airline has done more or refunded as quickly? The fact that it will have taken them a while to process refunds is surely understandable in the circumstances.

With maybe tens of thousands of passengers affected almost all at the same time, why do people believe that all these refunds should be made in a few days? How many do you think were disrupted at say Easyjet? Maybe if people would make a point of having some savings behind them then they wouldn't be standing waiting every minute for these refunds to appear. And don't start telling me that many of these passengers can't afford to have savings, far too many live to their limit every week in the belief that nothing will never go wrong, then when it does they are sunk.

We wanted to cancel, but she could not get hold of them, and then the date came where they automatically took the full balance for a holiday they clearly could not honour. Now I aint really bothered - we'll go at somepoint, but I bet there are families out there in the same boat that did not have that money to be taken as their position changed also. It was quite naughty TBH. Since they took the balance we have had 3 or 4 mails off them about options, but nothing before they had all they money...money which we did not want taking out of our bank.

Quite so. Jet2s professionalism in refunding us has, if anything, reinforced our brand loyalty. Come 2021 (2020 is a dead duck now for us) we'll be comparing TUI's attitude to its Customers to Jet2 and others, if there are any and I cant see how ANYONE could trust TUI to do the right thing ever again.

But by it's nature this is a fast changing situation that is kept under review. The situation is improving in the UK and in other European countries. If foreign office advice against all international travel is changed and quarantine requirements are lifted on our European neighbours I don't see why the flights would be taken off sale.

Refunds are nothing to do with the Manchester thread.

Can they be moved to a general refund thread rather than hijack issues specific to Manchester.

Spanish Prime Minister has quoted today that Spain will be open to ALL tourists including BRITISH from July (no exact date given but ready how things are changing looks to be the 1st July) looking on Ryanair at PMI they've updated the schedule from 2 or 3 flights per day to just the one flight a early evening departure 2310hrs return into Manchester at least we will see aircraft in the late evening then, as currently last flight arrives around 1430hrs ex IOM/ABZ
Easyjet and Jet2 are showing various destinations bookable from 01/07/20, other airlines AY restart daily flight 1/7 and LH start late June 6 x weekly to FRA
July 1st seems to be restart some normality at least we should be able to go to Spain for holiday and not have to quarantine whilst there, this could be the first chance to get a nice pint in a pub...happy days...oops then we have to sit at home for 2 weeks afterwards oh well at least we had two weeks of freedom

That Freedom is called The Sack. As an employer just trying to get things re-started and then my Work(shy)force wanting a 'pint in a pub' and being off for 4 weeks would be my last straw.

I think that the 14 day quarentine requirement is likely to be lifted at the beginning of July when the UK moves to phase 3 of the recovery plan. It's under continuous review anyway and like FCO advice not to travel it can change when circumstances change.

If quarentine requirements are lifted I don't see why anyone would need 4 weeks off work if they are fit and well.

I think the UK's 2 week quarantine rule.will be gone by July. Airlines I believe are confident of this which is why most post-June bookings are still standing. I am booked to fly MAN-VRN in mid-July with Jet2 and it hasn't been cancelled so far.

For those thinking of travelling but not made any plans yet, then consider travelling back to the UK via the Republic of Ireland, as you will be absolved of any quarantine regulations on arrival in the UK.

From the UK Govt website:
You will not need to fill in the form or self-isolate for 14 days if you’re travelling to the UK from:
  • Ireland
  • the Channel Islands
  • the Isle of Man

If you were tempted to try this route, you might want to buy a separate ticket for the RoI-UK leg rather than a through ticket ... and you'd need to stay "in transit" in DUB or SNN.
However, by the time that travel becomes possible, the quarantine regs might have been refined ...

I do believe that you have to self quantine in the Irish Republic for 14 days if arriving from overseas, so this would invalidate a way of circumventing the UK self quarantine.

I thought that Ireland already had 14 day quarantine. At the moment you are exempt if processing to NI, but I'm sure that the two governments will have liaise on this.
