Funny how it’s only Jet2 pilots that feel the need to shout about their T&Cs and tell everyone how great their lives supposedly are. I believe “inferiority complex” is the polite term here.

I went part time fairly early in my career and never looked back, for me it’s the difference between enjoying and not enjoying the job. Knowing you have that fixed firebreak coming up makes the early...

I understood that to be 100,000 departing pax, which is a lot closer to the pre-covid average over the year, but well down when considering it’s the busiest time of the year.

Jet2 have been just as bad, if not worse out of some airports, particularly Bristol and Birmingham and especially on the weekends. Not that you’d hear about that here though.

The flight isn’t showing because it’s fully booked. Why do you need assurance, if you haven’t heard anything then the flight is planned to go ahead as scheduled.
