IMHO that's serious Customer Service.

You have to give credit to Jet 2 - they really do above and beyond to get their punters to destination.
Hope the Crew member is ok. When I worked at Airtours 2 Cabin Crew went sick in Sydney so I bagged a crew member who was on his hols.

Flew Jet2 yesterday for the first time and not being a fan of low cost airlines, I feared the worst. However, apart from the fact that I personally didnt find the seats particularly comfortable, I had one of the best airline experiences I have ever had. Before retirement I flew very regularly but over the last couple of years only around 6 round trips a year, mix of long and short haul. I know things change, but our ‘legacy’ carrier could learn a lot by adopting a similar ‘ customer comes first’ attitude.
Well done Jet2 !!��

We do 3 return trips a year with Jet2 who've never failed to impress.
Sure, the seats (recaro?) are thinly padded probably to help with legroom, although and the pitch seems quite generous surprisingly, you do get a numb bum after 4hrs to the Canaries. Small price to pay otherwise we really enjoy the flights.

I’m off to Cyprus (larnaca) with them on Monday, there’s a party of us going for a wedding, adults and kids so looking forward to their customer service, as I hear many good things about them. We have booked a package holiday with them, so they’ll be “with us” throughout the week.

I’m 5’11” and flew BA last Friday an A320 in row 25, my knees were grinding against the seat in front! Luckily I was the only passenger sat in the row, otherwise I would be claiming for DVT!

Haha loving your vocabulary
I certainly wasn’t slouching, I am office based so this “dick” knows perfectly how to sit properly!
I have flown on both A319 & A320 this year and noticed that the A319 has more legroom...this particular A320 was 5 years old so I assumed it had a different pitch than the older A319’s.

Jet2 have a great reputation and fast growing passenger loyalty - They are doing very well out of STN in the South - I just wished they would start flights and holidays out of their ''spiritual home'' of Bournemouth and kick the incumbent to the kerb...

As for BA economy short haul leg room - We all know how shocking it has become and even worse on their new Neo fleet in some respects. The last row is appalling.
You may still be lucky and get an older config where the leg room is better down as far as the E/Exits (The movable Club Europe cabin that had 34'' pitch) but most of the fleet are having or had new slim seats fitted and pitch is much less throughout.
As for Club Europe - you get the luck of the empty middle seat, but unless you can grab row 1 (or the exit rows if there is a big Club load) for legroom and space then it is gruesome for the money.

Seats - an aside

We have given up trying to bag the front row RHS (1DEF or 2DEF depending on aircraft) when we book even though it has enormous legroom and we now go for the row behind.
The seats don't have the pull up and out 'tray' a la the front seats on their rental A320s but a wobbly plug-in thing thats neither use nor ornament. Its so c---p to use with the onboard meals that we stopped ordering them.
Worse is that because the Loos are right next door, handy in one way, the queuing Pax use your space to queue jnto.
The legroom behind that Row is still very acceptable and IIRC cheaper.
Just my two penn'orth.

Larnaca is a long 5 hour flight and the slim line seats, that allow incredible leg room, may disappoint you by the time you land at your destination. Perhaps a visit to your local budget shop and buying some econmical blow up pillows for the family and friends to take on board in the hand luggage would be advisable and would contribute to your added comfort. For shorter persons the edge of the seats can cause discomfort in the back of the legs behind the knees and to avoid the legs going numb, it would be a good idea to place your hand luggage below the seat in front of you and use it to rest your feet on top. This makes for a much more comfortable sitting position.

May you enjoy the trip and the JET2 experience.....

Thanks for the kind advice, well noted.
I still haven’t packed properly so the neck support and pillow are now on my list!
I am used to flying but the kids aren’t, i’m sure the iPads can cure that
Thanks again 👍

They are coming back for us with kids at 3 and 8, not looking forward to landing at 2am! Thankfully we are off work that day!

If you have booked a package with J2 and the hotel you are going to does the resort flight check-in service I seriously recommend using it particularly with those flight times and kids. On the day you fly they come and take your bags at the hotel in the morning and print your boarding passes etc. Your bags are taken to the airport for you and the next time you see them is back in the UK.

It makes the timings that little bit more tolerable and also removes the stress of standing in the queue at the airport to check-in as when you get there you just go straight through to security as the bags etc are already gone.

Happy to assist. Bear in mind the hand luggage foot rests and apart from i-pads, maybe a good reading book would also help......

G-DRTI 'Live'?

G-DRTI registering on FR24 at MAN. Looks like its located at the hangars.
Switched on for systems checks prior to test flights?
Update anyone?

It's been "live" again today. If you look back to the 16th August comment, it was due to go for painting a week ago. Evidently maintenance is taking longer than was anticipated.

apparently it has run over by a few weeks - due out of the hangar and to go on its first check flight on the 20th sept is the current estimate.
