Cons: "A few too many announcements and promotions for buying stuff on board."
Pros: "Comfortable flight"
Cons: "Alanya airport puts you through security 3 times. If they want to do this at the gate including hand searching they need to employ more staff to speed up the process. Food and drink at the airport is expensive"
Pros: "That it's over"
Pros: "Nice plane and well trained crew, will fly them again, without any doubt"
Pros: "Boarding well organised, cfrew friendly."
Cons: "Announcements too frequent and very loud."
Cons: "Missed the need to add luggage to both inward and outbound journey, that got excessively charged on the way back. Have never had to select luggage allowances both ways, clearly we want to bring our luggage back! + why should it cost twice as much to add to the hold when paying at the airport, rip of"
Pros: "Amazing customer service from the moment we arrived at the airport, throughout the checkin process and on the plane. Really extraordinarily amazing given that it was the Saturday of half-term. Cannot praise highly enough."
Cons: "I canot think of any single fault at all."
Pros: "Crew are always pleasant and know how to smile"
Cons: "Air con started out super hot then went rather chilly!?"
Pros: "Great boarding decent legroom"
Cons: "Good all round - no entertainment but it’s short haul so expected"
Pros: "This plane was alot older then other planes owned but the cabin was still new, legroom brill, clean cabin and excellent staff. We were kept fully informed of the extra safety procedures needed in regards to de-ice the plane before takeoff."
Cons: "Would have rathered a new plane, and to land ontime but only 20 mins late."
Pros: "Cheap and easy."
Cons: "The announcements were a bit “organised tour” excitement which was odd. Also not allowed tablets during take off and landing which was a bit behind the ball compared to other carriers."
Cons: "Could not check in online"
Pros: "Late at the airport but they managed to get us all through and boarded on time"
Cons: "Too many steps especially at Birmingham"
Pros: "Crew was good, boarding was good. On time."
Cons: "All food/drinks are chargeable, but they will not accept credit cards without a raise number on the front so I couldn't use my travel credit card and then I couldn't use my debit card because they said "often the debit card will not run through while in the air"...fortunately I had some Euros."
Pros: "The crew were helpful and friendly"
Cons: "Nothing to report. Very efficient"
Pros: "Left on time. Arrived on time. Clean. Everything worked. Competent and friendly crew. Great price. Yes, we definitely would fly with Jet2 again."
Cons: "Really packed us in. Crew kept on offering items for sale. But, it is a deeep discount carrier so we were not surprised."
Pros: "Good flight (when we eventually got airborne. Friendly cabin crew"
Cons: "Last minute gate changes at Heraklion meant lots of confusion & frustration plus late departure. Edinburgh airport is a joke since its recent upgrades, plane sent to wrong bay caused delays getting off then baggage handlers are slow beyond useless, seem to think they are doing everyone a big favour & will do things when it suits them. No help or information from airport staff who promptly vanished at the 1st sign of trouble. Edinburgh airport really needs to have a long hard look at itself."
Pros: "Nice clean plane. Short flight good check in, comfortable seat. Nice staff"
Cons: "No entertainment"
Pros: "Crew were polite, better than on the outward flight from Paris CDG to Leeds, but seemed more interested in chatting to each other than to reassure passengers about the long delays. Once underway, the flight progressed well."
Cons: "When a 30 minute delay was announced (13.45 instead of 13.15), I was fairly philosophical. However, we didn't board until 13.45. Once settled in our seats, another 25 minutes went by when the plane did not move. No information's given. I asked a member of the cabin crew what was going on who said she didn't know anything. I then heard her ask (presumably the captain) on the intercom if he could make an announcement as 'passengers were enquiring' We were then informed that we would have a further delay of up to an hour. We eventually took off at 16.00, over two hours after scheduled time. Thank goodness, I had left plenty of time for my connecting train. I was equally unimpressed for different reasons with Jet2.com on the outward flight on 12 July. I will not be flying with them again."
Pros: "The convenience of the route"
Cons: "The thumping 'music' as we boarded, the over-jolly announcements which treated the passengers as if they were all mentally deficient or poorly educated. The information they conveyed was clear and comprehensive and obviously, safety instructions are crucial, but the format and tone of delivery were so patronising I thought they were a parody. They also assumed everybody was coming back to the UK after their holiday - the flight had a good proportion of French passengers and some of us don't live in the UK. Make the announcements more neutral. I fly with a lot of no-frills lines, especially Ryanair and EasyJet as well as the larger carriers such as Air France, BA, SAS and Air Canada, but I have never come across such grating and irritating announcements. I will think twice before booking another flight with them rather than endure this again."
Pros: "I actually found the seat quite comfortable, compared with other low-cost airlines. I was glad that i could take my hand luggage onto the plane, allowing me to exit without having to wait at the carousel. There was plenty of space in the overhead locker. I liked the sense of humour in the announcements - it proves that even serious things can be said in a pleasant manner"
Pros: "Last minute booking from Alicante, amazing seat allocation and the flight arrived 35 minutes early."
Cons: "Shame Leeds wasn’t ready for us, took far too long to access the terminal and queue at passport control was a joke. Landed feeling great, now I’m ticked off."
Pros: "Another excellent flight on Jet2 , 35 minute delay but handled with such relaxed professionalism by the crew. Highley recommend *****"
Pros: "excellent legroom"
Cons: "Nothing. Superb flight."
Pros: "On time."
Cons: "Charge to ensure you keep your free hand luggage in the cabin. Security delays at Belfast."
Pros: "First holiday with Jet2 and really impressed. My only tip would be to book a meal, as pre-booked meals are served first and the non-booked sandwiches ran out by our row. Will fly with them again."
Pros: "Boarding was relatively painless. Although as always we seemed to end up in the crèche part of the cabin."
Cons: "Having to switch off all electronics while the seatbelt sign is on believe bags in the last century. Even a kindle! This is just ridiculous."
Pros: "New plane. Great legroom. Generous luggage allowance. Pleasant crew."
Pros: "Have drag A1 do great space, all in timd"
Pros: "Everything, staff the whole package faultless, well done !!!"
Pros: "First time iv used jet2 and I will again"
Pros: "Great flight, super low price. Overall great value. Also the cabin staff were great. The flight was quite empty so we had a bit of a blether"
Cons: "Nothing was wrong with the flight, aircraft or service. Only one star for food cos I didn't order, and for entertainment as there was none. Wasn't expecting for £80"
Cons: "temperature too cold on return flight from Faro, especially having been in hot weather for 16 days"
Cons: "Delay due to incompetence at Venice airport"
Pros: "- Flight was on time, yet they pad the timetable to make it difficult to be late. - Aircraft was relatively clean considering this was its 4th flight of the day, and the fact it's 29 years old. - More laid back then EZY and FR as they allow a reasonable turnaround time."
Cons: "- Seat assignments don't always make sense, we were split up even though there was an empty row behind us. - Shortly after takeoff passengers moved into the extra legroom seats without paying. - Constant attempt to sell things to you, scratch cards, overpriced drinks etc."
Pros: "On one of the busiest weekends for flying it was perfect..... the plane the staff and the flight"
Cons: "The food was expensive and not great"
Pros: "Great service and food and smooth all the wsy"
Cons: "BiokAggrevation beforehand trying to book guaranteed cabin baggage"
Pros: "Convenient flights. Friendly staff. Excellent price."

Pros: "Friendly, polite crew and clean aircraft both ways."
Cons: "Poor entertainment and lack of holder on seat in front to hold magazines, phone, iPad etc."
Cons: "Our flight out was delayed by a couple of hours and the return flight was delayed at least an hour. It was clear skies, no tusre why. Also, after having paid to check our bag, the bag didn't arrive at our destination because it was removed from the plane, along with 26 others. We didn't get it back for 5 days, just in time for our holiday to be over."

Pros: "All the rest was fine I was happy with you service"
Cons: "The delay in on way going and coming back the only issue"
Pros: "Nothing, staff didnt even attempt to help me once i eventually for the gate for easyjet and the gate had closed (due to staff telling me to go to departures after showing that i didnt have a boarding pass)"
Cons: "The lack of help recieved by staff throughout the airport to help me get to the correct gate. After 30 mins of asking different staff where to go and what i needed to do to get on the flight the gate for my flight was then closed which has caused me to pay for an extra flight. Due to this i will be requesting a full refund on the first flight."
Pros: "Pilot got us there in less than an hour after a three hour delay"
Cons: "Three hour delay with no explanation until we were actually on the flight. Only a £3 refreshment voucher. Couldn't hear cabin crew and they rushed through the food service. Looked like they didn't want to be there."

Quick and smooth flight and efficient boarding. Security at Bristol was fairly quick. Bit of s queue at La Rochelle passport control however the passport officer was great with the kids and quite chatty joking with them."
Cons: "Flight was late by 40mins however everyone was apologetic and this was advertised well in advance which was good."

Pros: "Crew was very good keeping everyone happy"
Cons: "Delayed and boarded plane and sat for 2 and half hours before taking off."
