Anyone flown with Jet2?

Options
Hi, I have made my flight bookings for Amsterdam at the end of this month with Jet2.com.
Anyone flown with them? what are they like aircraft and customer service wise?

Hope I haven't made a bad decision! I could have flown with KLM but there flights were 30 quid more and only a few selected time slots were available which were not suitable.

Thanks in advance,
Kelly. :)

    Flown with them a few times from my local LBA .

    Never a problem and always on time. Aircraft new or fairly new Boeing 737s of various seating capacities.

    As with all Airlines some people have no problems some have many !

    I was intending to fly JET2 but as a nervous flyer I always have a look at the aircraft fleet to see what planes they have and how old they are. JET2 seem to have bought a load of old planes. The majority of their planes are between 18 and 20 years old. Think they have a couple about 15 years old. I am sure you will be ok. Check out this website to do your research on any airline.

    Another vote for Jet2. We have used them about 4 or 5 times, mainly to Spain, and have had only good experiences. Their punctuality has been excellent. We have no hesitation at all about using them and have another booking with them to Barcelona in Sept. The low fare finder is really helpful for finding the best deals.

    Astonished to find their aircraft are so old !

    All I can say is by appearances they must have been very well maintained or had major refits as some appear nearly new .

    I will still continue to use them .

    As they are still in business the answer must be "yes".

    I've had no problems with them - they do what they say on the tin

    Well thanks for the info people!
    The low airfare finder is a godsend I must say, and had I have booked this trip a couple of months ago I would have gotten it cheap as chips :D

    I'm not bothered if their aircraft are old so long as they get us there without crashing :p

    Thanks again!
