Winter 2013-14 flights started to be put on sale in early November 2012. Canaries are usually first on sale, ski and city break routes usually later

Well done Jet2. Good to see them supporting their spiritual home.

No new bases which anyone knows about at the moment! These things tend to be sprung on those at the pointy end with not much notice!

BBC News - Low cost airlines credit cards fees 'too high' says Which?



some very good footage of a Jet2 757 from above, the article is about some low cost airlines practice of charging for credit and debit cards, to be fair Jet2 don't charge for debit cards, however i think 6.99 for check in online is taking the p**s also 23 for a bag one way is a bit steep

Clearly the BBC think easyBus is an airline...

Planefan2981 6th Oct 2013 10:46

I think that clip is rediculous given that Jet2 dont currently charge for Debit Cards...and how is Ryanair not on there? I wonder how much O'Leary paid BBC News to keep clear of the clip??

FRatSTN 6th Oct 2013 11:49

Ryanair perhaps isn't there because believe it or not, they are actually more lenient on credit card fees than many other LCC's.

EasyJet, Jet2 and Ryanair all don't charge for Debit Cards. For Credit Cards, EasyJet and Jet2 charge 2.5% of the total booking price, Ryanair only charges 2%.

EasyJet and Ryanair both also allow you to select your payment method on the very first page. Therefore you can see how much your booking will cost with either a debit or credit card right from the very start, so you don't get that last additional cost spring up on the very last page.

So out of EZY, LS and FR... The truth is that Jet2 is probably the worst (because you aren't shown the price until the very end of the booking), then EasyJet as they allow you to see from the start and then maybe to some people's surprise, Ryanair is the best by also showing you from the start and charging 0.5% less.

It's worth adding that Norwegian Europe's 3 rd biggest low cost carrier charge just a flat fee of 4 reservation for credit cards and no charge for on line checkin, I can't see Jet2 getting away with the on line checkin fee not being shown at the booking stage, you can't avoid it, so it should be included, it spoils what is otherwise a good product, shame they don't have confidence in their product to show true cost up front.

I have no problem with charges for bags and sports equipment and card fee's that reflect the cost of processing, but the rest is just misleading the true cost of a flight.

I thought the B738's had a seating capacity of 189. Just checked the seating plan of a Blackpool to Lanzarote flight and there are 192 seats shown. Can anyone clarify.

LBIA 6th Oct 2013 16:01

Well I hear 6x B738's will be joining the Jet2 fleet over the winter season.

Jamesair 6th Oct 2013 16:32

Are these to be used as replacement for existing a/c or for expansion next year?

Are you counting 1def? As this isn' actually there on board. Row 2def is the front row on aircraft right.

TSR2 6th Oct 2013 17:49

Thanks for that. Yes, 1D, 1E and 1F are shown as seats available.

Great news for Jet2 and MAN and EDI and GLA and LBA and EMA and everywhere else getting a flurry of new routes but when is Newcastle going to get some Jet2 lovin' :(

Don't forget about their small BFS base

PIOSEE 17th Oct 2013 23:04

Hi guys, I was just wondering which base contains the most 737-800's that are operating for Jet2?

BasilFawlty 17th Oct 2013 23:06

Manchester, next question please. :p
