I've flown as a passenger on a large number of airlines all over Europe. Whenever it involves Jet2, it always seems to have a high preponderance of stag dos along with a noisy atmosphere and many people drinking alcohol. For some reason, the most similiar airlines I can think of, namely Ryanair or TUI, just don't get this sort of atmosphere onboard, let alone any other major airline I can think of unless there happens to be a large number of fans travelling for a football game.
Why do Jet2 flights seem to get this particular crowd ? At the queue for a gate, Jet2 pax seem fairly quiet and innocuous but once in the air, pax seem to have this sudden urge...
I know Jet2 have a strict policy on alcohol to prevent things getting out of control (and that policy on booze has been discussed at length on the Internet), but I'm still wondering why Jet specifically get this crowd in the first place

Apologies if this should go in the Passenger forum, but this seemed like a good place for the question...

Never been an issue on any of my flights. How often? what routes? Which day of the week, time?

The alcohol doesn't take affect until up in the air? And at that altitude it has a different affect on passengers then it would on the ground.

I've seen a number of videos recently and all seem to be more on Ryanair then Jet2. As you say Jet2 have a strict policy and management team which are fairly happy for commander and his crew to divert if necessary to throw the idiots off.

As soon as some enter an aircraft their IQ resets to zero..I don`t believe that Jet2 have any more, than the same share, all the other `Holiday airlines` get. The difference is that Jet2 management are prepared to publicise what has happened, publically back their Captains and crews and use it as a warning to others. Especially their well known policy of pursuing these clowns through the civil courts for their diversion costs. It smacks of a `firm hand on the tiller` and that is often a reassuring reason for people to trust them with their holidays/flights...

The only experience I've had of this nature was on Easyjet. Early morning flight, two young tracksuit clad lads board and sit in row 1. Immediately shouting 'oi oi lets get on it' before the doors have been closed and pushback is initiated. Had a skinful in the terminal since 4am. Very wet crew manager having words with them asking them to calm down. I had a chat with crew, advised that I was police and I'd recommend thinking about not letting them travel. I was 'reassured' that they 'won't be served any more alcohol on board' and he'd 'keep an eye on them'.

Sure enough as soon as the drinks trolley came round at 30,000 feet and they were refused vodka they kicked off and caused issues for the remainder of the flight. Shouting and swearing at crew. Crew spent their entire time trying to appease them. Had they been offloaded at the start none of it would have happened.

Does anyone know how successful they have been in their civil actions? Do travel insurance companies have to pay or do courts arrest a percentage of the individual's wage? If the latter I would think it would take many years to get back the costs of a diversion.

Jet2

Can anyone advise which b752 aircraft have 2 seats by each exit at row 12 and which only have 12D & E.
Thanks

Seatguru has one layout for the jet2 752 (I'm sure they are all standard) with row 12 having 2x2 seating at the exit.

Second hand Strategy

Jet2ís new NEOs are slated for delivery from 2023 according to last yearís press release.

In the meantime, the airline has brought into use 3 second hand 321s (LA/B/F) and in the last few weeks another 2 738 arrived (RJ/K).

Does anyone know what the fleet strategy is beyond the big Airbus order?

No more second hand aircraft?
Continue to buy ad-hoc one or both types?

Any exit dates yet for the remaining 733s and 757s. Or mention of retiring the oldest 738s which are now approaching 25 years old?

Which dates? Could be a short term ACMI lease over the summer months.

Thanks Irishlad.
Bizarre isn't it - all the nice new and newish 737s and we (me) have a soft spot for the 757s.
Probably because Pre-covid had two holiday trips that used them (MAN-TFN and MAN -ACE).and were great flights both ways.
