I remember from way back when BMI used to operate from Luton to Jersey during the summer months, when they had long delays and the odd day they could not get in.
Some might remember BA operating a Tristar into Jersey to try and clear a backlog due to weather cancellations.

This might help, August 1979 I believe. 16000 passengers were stranded on Jersey, I took this on the day.

Since Jet2 have not offered flights to Spain or Portugal for months, it is highly unlikely they have any guests wanting to get home from there. There may be a handful of seat only but that will be it. They are cancelling the entire programme. People will be offered an alternative destination or a refund,

that's a load of rubbish.........Faro has been on for a month after bridge went.
No idea why as load to leeds was never more than 50 and as low as 9.

When are the Canaries going back on sale as they are off the naughty step.

RVF750 22nd Oct 2020 16:31

The midnight oil will be burning in HQ tonight.

737James 22nd Oct 2020 16:41

I have a feeling that Tui were given a heads up on the Canaries restrictions being lifted, As I was looking at holidays to Cyprus earlier this week for Sun- Wed but Tui were really pushing Tenerife and Gran Canaria in the searches which I found strange as they had been off sale for such a long while. I am sure Jet2 will be able to react quick to get flights and holidays on sale for the half term peak

2Planks 22nd Oct 2020 16:41

I see they are now on sale. Midnight oil not required. The speed of reaction is impressive.

No heads up, all travel companies are informed of changes to travel corridors at 1640 on Thursday.

However, all travel companies also have the ability, like your or I, to track the infection rates in destinations and make decisions accordingly. Months of dealing with this destination roulette has probably lead to some companies working out ways to better keep money in the business. TUI have probably worked out that it’s better to cancel holidays after the Thursday announcement the week before than cancel months at a time and then be forced to reinstate destinations at short notice, like Jet2 have to do now. Giving the customer the option to amend leaves the ball in their court as to whether they want the certainty of a “safer” destination, or wait to see if their original holiday can go ahead.

Jet2 Holidays to the Canaries were only cancelled up to the 31st October, Vokes - not ‘months of holidays’ to reinstate as you claim.




H44 22nd Oct 2020 17:55

He means a month at a time, ie Jet2 won’t have any canaries flights for half term as they cancelled the whole of October. I suppose they could always add some in for this weekend.

OzzyOzBorn 22nd Oct 2020 18:45

I wonder whether Jet2 are aware that when a respondent completes their emailed online survey ("How do you feel about travelling?"), they are redirected directly to the Jet2holidays homepage and not to the 'register your details' for our draw for two free flights as promised? Never mind, I never win a prize draw like that anyway! And I'm quite happy to provide them with feedback re prospective new bookings. But I suggest that they do repair the link to the post-survey prize draw before other respondents get too upset.

As explained one post below yours.

However not even the most brainwashed Jet2 fanboy or employee could deny that cancelling the largest market for October half term a month in advance was short sighted.

When the government was on its ban everywhere mode do you blame them?

Dragging out cancellations for a week, every week over cancelling for a sustained period of time is better for business & customer service. Or maybe I’m an idiot for thinking that way.

No, you're absolutely right. I am actually surprised that, given the dire Covid situation in Austria, and particularly around Innsbruck, and the associated resorts, thy haven't scrubbed the ski flights for most of the season already. Thing aren't going to get better, you only have to look at how, even in Germany, where they (and I suspect we) thought they could hack it, numbers are seriously on the rise.

Are there any plans to retire the early 737-800s from the fleet.

Not likely. There is still 7 -300s milling around so if anything they’ll be more than likely going first. There is still a few used -800s due to arrive from memory.
