Fabulous and friendly service for families from BA

Although overall it was a positive experience the plane itself was pretty dirty with wrappers strewn on the floor and a thick layer of dust in between mine and my husband’s seats. I understand the plane had had a previous flight but when you’re paying good money for a flight yourself you expect a certain level of cleanliness.

Check in was fastest I’ve had. Flight took off a little late but otherwise all good.

Apr 1, 2018

seats to tight for anyone over 1.75 m

Mar 29, 2018

Very impressed with Jet2 overall - 1 query I had though - check in staff labelled all our cabin bags as ‘under seat bags’ as they were all backpack type bags, meaning if they ran out of overhead space our bags had to go at our feet. I felt this a very unfair policy as I had paid for extra checked baggage so our carry on could be smaller but now may have been penalised with less leg room as I didn’t take a larger 10kg carry on. Thankfully our flight wasn’t full so this wasn’t a problem, however I would not have been impressed if I had been told to move my bag under the seat in front just because someone else had a bigger carry on bag!
