We have been on many flight operators but never on Jet2 until this week. I was impressed at check in and how quickly we got through passport control. Boarding the flight was no problem either. All passengers were on board a good 20 minutes before take off time yet we were sat on board for exactly one hour before he taxied to the end of the runway. I counted 5 Easy Jet planes and 1 Monarch that were behind us in the queue yet they used a slip road and took off before our flight.We landed in Alicante 45 minutes late. The same on our return journey, everyone was seated again 20 minutes before our take off time but we were 1 hour late taking off.
Landing in Manchester 40 minutes late. On other budget airlines we have never had those problems.
That was the only gripe because everything else was excellent. Pleasant crew and what appeared to be almost new planes. We had booked a meal which was superb and there was no hassle, the crew knew exactly where we were and what we had ordered. I would certainly travel with them again in the hope that they ironed out their take off procedures. My guess is that it’s all about money, Might it be that other airlines pay more for take off and landing fees?
