Would be interested to hear from anyone who was on Jet2 LS917 from Manchester to Tenerife on Tuesday 3/10/17 to compare notes on progress of compensation claim. Never had any problems with Jet2 before (only used occasionally) but this flight delayed 7.5 hours and getting any information from staff at their information desk in the airport was like pulling teeth. I got the impression that the staff were scared to say anything at all for fear of saying something that could make compensation more likely.

Hi I was delayed 26 hours on the same night as you flying to Leeds with Jet2. I put a claim in through the Martin Lewis website with RESOLVA, but Jet2 will only deal with letters so that was a * of time. I then used some templates and told them I would be filing a claim in small claims court if I did not receive compensation within 14 days. Still saying it was weather. I don't think the CAA can help because airlines are now signing up with these ADR (Airline dispute resolution) companies to sort things out, about the only company not to sign up is Jet2. So after a lot of research the general consensus is to use a no win no fee flight delay claim company. I have used claim4flights (again after researching), they think I have an excellent case and are very confident about my claim? It has been passed onto a solicitor at no extra cost to me and I am waiting to hear. I never want to experience that again, sleeping in the airport til 4.30am then getting taken to a hotel for 2 hours sleep! I'll let you know if I have any luck and fingers crossed for you Heather : Anyone delayed on the lanzarote flight in june2017 to Belfast, the one jet2 dumped us in Alicante in the early hours of the morning, because the adverse weather conditions now caused their pilots to be over their "flying hours"and won't pay compensation ?????? My next two holidays are already booked with jet2 one fully paid for. The other just a deposit, which I am seriously considering cancelling. 2nd letter from jet2 they not paying. Well here goes I'm going to the CAA with this one Jet2.

Does anyone remember when JET 2 put out an email with a 10% discount for next year's flights? I am flying to Palma and the prices are reducing but I am pretty sure I got a jet 2 email last year with an additional discount. Ev

Will not be using Jet 2 Airlines ever again rather pay more for better service almost three months to answer my complaint . The only thing I can think of there must be dozens of complaints for them to cover. Never again.

I too am disgusted with Jet2. Earlier this year I booked flights to and from Faro for next February and within a couple of weeks (when all accommodation was booked) I received an email telling me that the flights had been 'withdrawn'! I managed to rescue the holiday by booking alternative flights but from a different UK airport which involved extra flights and overnight accommodation. Jet2 have refunded the cost of the initial flights but refuse to pay me any compensation for the extra cost (which will be over £500) as my case does not 'fit' with the EU regulations. Like many others, I will not be flying with Jet2 again.

Petty and cynical Jet2 Every time we book our family on your flights it's as one group of three booking However, Jet2 splits us up around the plane. I'm sitting in the same row as my wife and we're at opposite windows but our son is three rows in front on his own I think you can seat us together if I pay extra but if I don't, Jet2 spreads us around the plane hoping that will be enough coercion to force us to start paying But Jet2 could just be reasonable and put us in adjacent seats in the first instance Cynical Jet2! .

Booking reference 2SJ5YJ At 7:55 this morning I was supposed to fly from Newcastle to Rome with the airline Jet2 to meet my son and his wife and three children. I have not seen them for 2 1/2 years. They have flown to Italy already from New York. When I went online to get my boarding pass Jet2 informed me that I did not have a booking and that it had been cancelled on July 23, two days after making my very important booking. I never did this and have no records of any emails from Jet2 about such a cancellation. So they have taken my money and now refuse to let me fly. I spent three hours on the phone with them yesterday talking to various departments but ultimately to no avail. So either someone hacked into my account or Jet2 made an error. I pleaded with them to be compassionate given the importance of this reunion with my grandchildren. I pointed out that they already had my money and that as a big corporation they could handle the inconvenience of putting me on another plane. Hell hath no fury like a Nana knocked back by corporate greed. I have made a big sign and I shall be protesting around Newcastle and at the airport today.

Does anyone know the G-INFO number of the Jet2 aircraft that has made 2 x emergency landings in the last 2 weeks?
15 July 2017 Guest
I'm disappointed with jet 2 after supporting them for many years at Leeds Bradford when they first started and the reason Leeds is the HQ They start to renew the fleet and I was so looking forward to flying on a new aircraft from Leeds only to find they ain't using them here we are stuck with the very old 300 series aircraft the odd older 800 They seem to be flying them from Manchester ,Birmingham and of course the NEW hub Stanstead yes they have an all new fleet operating from here no old bangers for the southerners So after all the support we have given them when they first started this is how they repay the loyalty Monarch and dare I say it Ryan air it is CHEERS JET2

Extremely disappointed with Jet2, flights booked from Edinburgh to Malaga for January 2017, received email from Jet 2 informing us that due to operational reasons they were rescheduling our Edinburgh flight to Newcastle the day before our intended departure date! Newcastle is at least 105 miles from Edinburgh and is 130 miles from our home. Jet 2 were not interested, that we had booked Hotel and car parking in Edinburgh and to move our hotel booking in Malaga would cost £90, so options from Jet2 were 1) accept reschedule 2) change to another flight with Jet 2 at cost 3) accept refund. This rescheduling is 8 Months before our intended travel date and Jet2 are completely unsympathetic to our additional cost that this "operational change" has made to our holiday plans

I booked and paid for a holiday to Lanzarote for our wedding anniversary, imagine my horror when I emailed the hotel to make certain requests regarding this matter only to receive an email stating that there was no booking for us staying at the hotel for those dates but we'd been booked in the month previous and we're regarded as a no show, this is just the icing on the cake as to the competence of Jet2holidays , they just couldn't care less, they've got your money and are not bothered, this will be the last time we ever use Jet2holidays, we've received emails from them stating that they don't offer a refund or compensation as it's not their policy. Not happy at all !!!

05 January 2017 Guest - Booking complaint
Has anyone booked a flight with JET2 and not paid the price that was quoted in the "total so far" little black box? It appears that whilst completing the payment details the price of the seats changed and the first notification that the prices had changed when the price that my credit card had been charged was different? At no point did the value of the seats change in this little black box or was I advised of this. I rang them back within minutes of noticing this and was told that it was probably an IT issue and there was nothing that they could do other than cancel and with hold £40 admin fee!! Disingenuous to say the least - first & last time flying with these people. Advice fly with MONARCH.

Flew from Ncl -Pmi 27/06/16. We were waiting in the departure Lounge when 3 girls in their early 20's clearly drunk,were being escorted by the duty manager. They were told to behave themselves and not to purchase any alcohol on board. The duty manager wrote on their boarding cards 'no alcohol'. The DM informed cabin crew of this and also the captain put announcements out that jet 2 had zero tolerance for bad behaviour on board and would off load anyone who did so. They took their seats at the emergency exit. Now I start thinking if we have to get off in a hurry are these able to open the door? I think not. The cabin crew informed them how to open the door in an emergency saying "are you listening, do you understand". Now that set my nerves off. There were a lot of families with small chidren on board, ours included. However out comes the drinks trolley and lo and behold they serve the females with alcohol !!!!! Granted they were no trouble but.......the emergency doors!!! On returning I sent jet2 an email raising my concerns. Their reply was because I didn't raise the matter on board at the time there is nothing they can do. So I question myself why didn't I? I didn't because the situation could have been very volatile and do holiday makers with families really want their children witnessing it. I am let down by jet2 as I have flown with them many times. But this just goes to show they're more interested in selling products and the cabin crew getting their commission.

Jet2 are getting like the rest of the bunch now customer service zero. They used to be good. My wife and I have travelled all over the world and never complained to a company ever. On a recent holiday to Cyprus we were put in a 3 star hotel which was nothing better than a hostel. We and another couple were checked in by " there's 2 keys which one do you want" no names or registration taken. The room had no fire instructions or smoke detectors, the shower was hanging off, no water coming out of the sink, no sink plugs, the loo roll was on the other side of the bathroom from the toilet, the safe was on the floor so you had to kneel on the floor to get to it, the patio doors had no stickers for safety, there was a very small step into the bedroom which was not marked , no beside lights I could go on and on. Jet2's reaction was more or less we were lying or hallucinating. The rep agreed with some of our complaints and then backtracked obviously been threatened by his bosses. A once good company gone bad.

We have used jet2 for 3 holidays per year for the last 5 years, never again! They have deteriorated badly. Flight times to Europe are no longer convenient, customer service is nonexistent and aircraft fleet is aged (and shows it). In May, our holiday hotel suddenly became unavailable at the last minute despite being booked and paid for in full, months before departure date. Our neighbours had terrible flights in an aircraft which looked barely airworthy and now my daughter has been told her 5* plus hotel is unavailable TWO DAYS prior to departure. Totally unacceptable. Won't use them again.

what an appalling situation I have had with Jet2 who have behaved in the most heinous fashion imaginable. My father has flights booked for June for him and my mother....he is on an outbound flight with another airline. He is currently in hospital he has just had a tumour removed from his liver which was found 6 weeks ago ( he is scanned every 6 months as he had cancer 3 years ago ) There has been a complication with his bowl and he has tubes coming out of places I didn't know they could get tubes in !!!! The other airline have just processed a refund and all they ask is I email them the doctors letter .....Jet 2 tell me they have a NO REFUND POLICY .......wow , don't have cancer and expect the rules to be bent by this company . If anyone has a similar story please email me lets shame this outrageous company .....email@example.com

Hi Theresa from Holiday Airport Lanzarote, really feel Jet 2 are the sort of crash and burn, fast growth no substance companies last seen in the 80,s. Best book with the trustable companies TUI or Thomas Cook for package holidays

I booked a flight with Jet2 to fly to Malaga, for a 2 week holiday with by brother and his wife flying from Australia. I also booked a car and insured the car using AXA car insurance.. The car provided was a badly scratched Passat with 56.839 k on the clock, which also started flashing Service Due. When I went for a run in the car and was coming along a motorway the tyre blew. I changed the tyre with the spare and drove to a petrol station, the spare was at 18psi, not 32 psi (tyres run flat tend to blow when hot). I was told by the car hire company Ц it is your problem and you must get a new tyre and claim your insurance. They eventually took the car in because I could not get a correct tyre and gave me a car with 41, 107 k on the clock Ц took it to a garage. 32psi, on the front driver tyre 18 on the other front and on the back 22psi . I complained about poorly maintained cars and lack of customer care and also the insurance who processed a claim but for less that submitted and all it said was Сrestricted to £80Т The undernoted was their final take: When customers book car hire or insurance through the Jet2.com website, Jet2.com acts as an agent for the third party providing the additional service. When we work with third parties we always ensure that they aim to provide the same high standard of service as Jet2.com, as we wouldn't want our customers to be disappointed. I understand that you don't feel either car provided to you was in an appropriate condition however, on that basis it may have been pertinent for you to not accept the cars and contact the emergency helpline number given to customers who have booked car hire. I'm sorry that you are disappointed with your experience on this occasion however, I trust that this now fully clarifies this matter for you and brings it to a close. To say they, or their third party suppliers, have a high standard of service is insulting Ц I did ask if they ever checked their had appropriate safety procedures such as servicing Ц no answer. Important no-one hire a car through this company Ц it is dangerous

I flew fr om Glasgow to Barcelona on 09/08/15, after a delay,then aborted take off we sat on aircraft and buses on tarmac causing an overall delay of three and a half hours.This was explained as a technical problem,after which we boarded another aircraft On the return flight 16/08/15 we again boarded the aircraft and were told there was a technical problem, after a three hour delay again sitting on the aircraft we flew back to Glasgow.My concerns are about the maintenance of your fleet of aircraft.Adding to my concerns was the recent incident wh ere an emergency stop and evacuation was executed due to smoke in the cabin in an aborted take off at Glasgow Airport.I would be extremely reluctant to travel with Jet 2 due to these recent events.Could you please reply to the comments made

Guest : I booked flights in January, from my Jet2 account for my son, his girlfriend and her daughter, to fly to Murcia in September. The flights were from Leeds Bradford, returning to Manchester. Unfortunately, they split up a few weeks later. Finally a decision was made that my son and his Dad would take the holiday, so I visited the Jet2 website and found that it would cost £35 each way to change the name of a passenger to allow my husband to fly. So I then tried to do just that. In fact, the cost was not only £35 each way, but there would also be an 'uplift' charge. The charge, in addition, would be £46 for the outbound flight, and И353 for the inbound flight! This was more than the flight had originally cost. On telephoning Jet2 to enquire what this 'uplift' charge is for, I was informed that it is the difference between the cost of the flight when booked and the price today. But I was not trying to book a flight today, only change a passenger name. I was told that this must be paid, and it reflected the market price today. But I did not want to book a flight today, I had booked in January. In fact, if I had booked the inbound leg today, on the Jet2 website, it would have cost И402 which is И2 cheaper than Jet2 wanted to charge me to change a passenger name! I am appalled at this blatant rip-off of a loyal customer of many years standing. I have paid the admin fee and 'uplift' on the outward flight, but booked with Ryanair for the inbound flight at only £130. This gives lie to the 'market price' argument. This, as a business practice can only be designed to rip-off passengers. The seat was already booked, you cannot resell it, for today's price, or any other price, so why do this? I will make sure that I inform as many people as I can about Jet2's appalling business practices, and I will never use this airline again. All sorted now! James called and reversed the situation - thank you Jet 2!
