I suspect that, like other bits of immigration and related stuff the government have effectively sub-contracted document checking to the airlines with fines if they let an improperly documented person on board.

Airlines don’t get access to the data in the form. They have to check that you have the required documents but that’s it. Some are happy to just see it others request it to be verified. It has seemed that UK airlines are more vigorous while foreign carriers just see it and carry on.

TUI require the PLF reference number to check in for the return they also check it on check in in resort. They annoying thing is that you have to enter your seat number but unless you’ve selected your seat you can’t enter this so can’t complete the form. You enter a fake seat to complete the form to enter into the TUI system to then check in. You are then supposed to complete another PLF as the seats have changed. This generates a new PLF ref but no way of entering this into the TUI system! There must be a better way

Just don't enter the seat number. Never have, never had a problem. The PLF is a box ticking exercise run by the department of health. The airline and border force just need to see it's been completed. If Test & Trace really wanted to know your seat number, they'd call you and ask once you're back in the UK. In reality, they won't.

You have to enter a seat number. It doesn’t let you leave it blank. But as everyone has said just put anything in it.

You don't need to enter anything and it will let you leave it blank.

Most recently I filled out a form on Thursday to confirm this.

A colleague just returned from holiday and was contacted by test and trace as there was a positive case on the flight. He was told passengers 2 rows fwd and aft were contacted. He hadn't filled his seat in as he didn't know it. So track and trace can certainly get the info should they want it and not from the passenger.

How are Jet2 crewing the Bristol flights? I assumed there was a base at Bristol but it seems the crew I had on a recent flight were Leeds based and doing stints presumably out of a hotel in Bristol.

Perhaps this is something to do with having experienced crew onboard at a new base? I know that when I flew out of Stansted in Jet2’s early days we had some northern crew onboard that were there whilst the base was setting up.

Only a guess however.

Exactly that.

There is a base there but there will be crews returning after furlough that can’t operate together due to recency so other crews are helping out whilst the locals regain their recency and become self sufficient again.

On Jet2.com EMA flights to ALC are showing 2 weekly but on the Jet2 holidays showing 6 weekly and have noticed the same with other routes. Does anyone know which schedule is correct, thanks

The Holidays one is correct. I believe Jet2 are making a number of their flights available to Jet2Holidays passengers only

Jet2 Summer 2023

Jet2 Summer 2023 has launched from Manchester and Stansted. Birmingham and East Midlands will follow in a few days on 20th October followed by Belfast and Bristol on 21st October.

Just done a dummy search and picked a random Manchester - Palma flight in September 2023 and these are being operated on a wide body. Anyone have any ideas on the carrier please? Looks to be an A330 with 45 rows.

looks like they may indeed be leasing the air Tanker again. Just found an old seat map and it looks the same

Having flown back to Manchester from Turkey on Friday with TUI I can confirm they do record the PLF number at check in, but that we were not at any time asked to show we had completed it in resort.

Sorry should have worded it better. Needed for online check in and checked visually at bag drop in the overseas airport. I didn’t mean the resort where the hotels are

Noticed the two A321s (G-HLYA & G-HLYB) what where due to join the fleet a year ago have been up on test flights from St. Athan the past month using leasing company registration OE-IOV & OE-IOJ. Are they finally joining the fleet?
Will they also add more 2nd hand A321s now that they are getting new A321neos from 2023?
