A very good service.
At Manchester, there was almost no queue whatsoever at check in. We then rapidly emplaned-by bus to a remote stand, presumably because this is cheaper and EU Jet are a LCC.
On time departure and arrival. Even better on the way back-no queue at all at check in at Manston and on time departure and arrival again. Manston is a tiny airport, but has all necessary facilities and is so much more restful than going through a large airport.
Cabin crew were smartly dressed and courteous. Aircraft (Fokker 100) were very comfortable and clean inside and out.
One slightly odd point was that we departed from Terminal 1 at Manchester, but came back into Terminal 3-no real problem however.
So thank you very much EU Jet and we'll by flying with you to Kent again next year.

Since I posted the above, EUJet have, of course, gone bust.
However, I have read (in a non-aviation journal) that this was due more to the problems of its parent company, Planestation, than problems at EUJet, who Planestation bought not too long ago, in a bid to boost their cash flow.
When I flew EUJet, they certainly didn't seem like an airline on the verge of bankruptcy.

Quoting Propman (Reply 5): Incidentally, there are still dozens of black cab taxis driving around Manchester with "Going to Kent? Fly to Kent. EU Jet" pasted on their sides-that's what originally sold this service to me.
There is still at least one. Swear i saw it again this morning waiting for my bus as it sailed down princess road
