A bit of positive news just before Christmas. Hats off to Jet2, seems to be the only airline in the U.K. doing something right.

I know the UK economy is very lopsided with a great deal of inequality but I’m kind of amazed Eddie and his daughter couldn’t afford to buy a cheapo ticket somewhere.

As an aside, I thought his wish might have been along these lines: https://www.theonion.com/world-war-ii-v ... 1819564417

Jet2 is a great airline. They've generated a lot of business by being - relatively - cheap and providing great service.

I flew with them this year on BHX-BOJ and they were excellent, very friendly crew and being "down to earth".

Yes, The Onion is a satire site. More to the topic though, an Attaboy to the airline for giving this gentleman a great experience.
