(My money's on crew hours)

diverted to replace the crew with a standby crew from Alicante. The original crew had already done 3 sectors so wouldn’t have had the hours to continue to the UK. Not nice for the passengers but better than a 24hour delay.

Just had a flight with Jet 2, terrible experience. Only good point was it was on time.
Cabin staff went past our row without asking if we wanted any snacks or drinks, lots of recorded announcements, (Don't get that many on Ryan Air)
Children running up and down the aisle, Toilet had paper strewn over the floor.
The acoustics on this particular flight were terrible, you could here people talking many rows away, not something I have noticed on other airlines.
The screeching announcement after landing wishing everybody a happy holiday, made Ryan Airs fan fare sound delightful.

The return flight on Easy in comparison was a delight.

Exactly the opposite on 2 flights BHX/GIR
Cabin staff managed two trolley passes in a 1h 55m flight
Charming and helpful staff,no running kids and toilets were immaculate.
Acoustics fine and the flight deck were, as usual, informative. I can forgive the taped announcements,it is a holiday airline after all, and at least we don't have the FR trumpet when it arrives on time. My two flights arrived early.
My shorthaul airline of choice...

Mine too.
What flight number and date?
why are you blaming the CC for the actions of the Pax?
The kids are the responsibility of the parents. And shouldnt the kids still be in school?
No trolley service? Have you no tongue to say "you missed me"?
The CC didnt throw the toilet paper on the floor - you, the Pax did.
Noisy aircraft? Nah, dont believe it.
Give me Jet2 announcement s any day compared to Ryanair. Now theyve cut down the use of that song, the Jet2 ones are no worse than any other loco.

Jubilee - sounds very uncommon to me. I have travelled with Jet2 dozens of times, I have also travelled with easyJet, Norwegian and I’m ashamed to say that I used Valdermort Airlines once. There is a clear winner and that is definitely Jet2, followed closely by easyJet then Norwegian not far ahead of Valdermort Airlines.

SS Flyer
It was a Man - Pmi flight will not give the flight No. or date don't want to have the staff getting into trouble.
Agree it is the parents who should keep their children in check, most were 3/4 years old., certainly one girl who was school age.
As for the toilet it did not look as though the cabin staff had checked it.
We did ask in the end for drinks and the guy who sat by the window had to ask for snacks.
Believe me the cabin was very noisy, the lady in charge of the cabin had the volume turn high on the system and it was a struggle
to hear what she was saying.
Don't know if it was just this particular aircraft, second hand 737-800, and we were sat in row 4.
On our return sat on row 3 with easy, just normal level of sound.

Leg room was sufficient as I am 6'3", design of the seat back on the seat in front meant my knees were not pressed
onto the seat back, so not all doom gloom.

LS634 G-JZBH from Tenerife to East Midlands has squawked 7700 and is diverting into Lisbon, does anyone know why?

Judging by their sudden loss of altitude, my guess would be something technical.

Anyone notice the smaller tail sun on G-DRTO ?

Is this a new style? Or not done correctly?

You got a good eye there Garry, not many people would have spotted that one
My money would be on cost saving, as they would probably go to the same people to get their planes coloured and they' keep the same stencils

Possibly just updating the company 'image'?
If that rising sun is a 'sticker' ;-) the new one might be easier and quicker, and so less expensive, to apply.
Anyone know if its paint or plastic?

Think I prefer the older style of rising sun, looks more professional!

It is smaller....the rising sun doesn't go as far up the tail! (That's how I noticed the difference)

Also, there is only 5 sun ray 'tails' above the door, where as on other aircraft, there is 6! Count them for yourself.

Sun is most likely decals as ones that have been delivered from Boeing did not have them applied in the US, they got them applied elsewhere

It's painted on. Boeing won't do it at the factory as it is too similar to Allegiant Air's tailfin.

Why would this be an issue for Boeing and nobody else? Don't remember Allegiant buying any a/c from Boeing?

Not officially confirmed as far as I know, but reputedly it all stems from the 2 757s that Jet2 leased before they were delivered to Allegiant some years back which had already acquired Allegiant colours (minus titles). The Jet2 boss liked the livery, and reached an agreement with Allegiant that an adapted version could become the Jet2 Holidays livery. Part of the deal was that no Jet2 Holidays-liveried aircraft can fly in the USA, hence the basic blue/white liveries when they leave Boeing.
