19 replies 767 views
Hi Booked with JET2 for September 2020 ,but under current circumstances wife is unwilling to fly , so no refund available as flights are still going , but i can amend my booking for next September , thanks ,but why have to prices for next September skyrocketed , 2020 £1253 , 2021 £1738 ! similar dates same destination ,£500 increase ,but they have me over a barrel so to speak , it's rebook or loose my money , yes legally there ok ,but ethically & morally ? aren't they just profiteering from everyone's misery & recouping their losses from this year !?
oh forgot to mention the charge for rebooking ,God knows how much that will be !

    Suspect it just a case of supply and demand, hasn't it always been like that?

    My wife was flying to Spain with some friends in May with Jet2 (which was obviously cancelled) but when she rebooked for May next year they were cheaper.

    She ended up booking additional baggage to use up the remaining balance.

    Is that around the Mayday holiday weekend, very early in the month ?
    Flight (and holiday prices) are lower for Brits then for some reason - may be something to do with Europeans not flying that weekend ?
    In general I suspect prices will be higher in 2021.

    Loads more people booking 2021 due to being unable to travel in 2020. Not just Jet2. Hotels across the UK also similarly booked up for 21 due to rearranged 20 bookings.

    Supply and demand - all airlines have 'fare buckets' and all this rebooking will have used up the cheaper fares. 
    That's not too bad really - supplier costs are going to increase massively, and I've seen some quotes next year for 3x what they are this year.

    Why wouldn’t they increase prices, they have lost out this year and if the demand is there for next year the prices will only go one way, you are not being ripped off,as you don’t have to pay it

    I read the above replies with interest.....Supply & demand some are quoting .....ha ha ha
    No this is purely a Jet2 rip-off. 
    Jet2 have done the same for us - same July flights next year are £727 more than this year for three of us.
    Checking Ryan air you can get the same flights over £900 cheaper - so not supply and demand. Just Jet2 who know they have people on the hook this year who have little choice to pay their ridiculous increases or lose their money.
    So yes people are being ripped off because they have no choice - do the maths
    Paid to date £1300
    If cancel flights lose £1300
    If change for same dates next year pay another £700 - now not next year
    Pay Ryan air for same flights £1000 next year.
    Yes disgusting Rip off by Jet2 that will not be forgotten by lots of regular customers
    To rub salt in the wound - you can even book the exact same Jet 2 flights for next year on there website and same nearly a £100 rather than changing your flights.
    Jet2 absolute disgrace - they should be ashamed!

    Flight prices that I have checked have increased comparatively little for next year.  That would suggest that much of the increase is down to increased accommodation prices.  It's not unreasonable that hotels are trying to recover some of their losses.  They know demand will be high next year and are pricing accordingly.
