Smile Jet2 flights 2019 - legroom on standard seats

Galaxy Boy and I are considering booking some Jet2 flights from Birmingham (BHX) to Antalya. Being only 5ft tall I've never had a problem with legroom on planes, but at just over 6ft tall Galaxy Boy is worried that standard seats will not give him enough legroom and his knees will be wedged up against the seat in front. Can anyone who has travelled Jet2 recently give us some advice please?. (I know we cold book the extra legroom seats, but that's an extra £105 out of his pension!!). Thanks, GG

GG, he will be fine I'm sure. I'm a very large chap (tall and rotund) and I find the seats on jet2 the best of all apart from long-hall which can be bigger.

I struggle like hell on Thomas Crook, Sleazy Jet are a little better - and I so like the fact that their seats don't recline - thus avoiding the 6 stone 10 year old in the seat in front wanting to recline on my belly....

Just a thought - but have you looked at TA - I know they have to have a stop in Istanbul (best lounge in Europe), but with them including all booze, food, hold luggage and in-flight entertainment etc we find it often works out quite a bit cheaper - and so much more comfortable.

Re: Jet2 flights 2019 - legroom on standard seats

I take it by TA you mean Turkish Airlines, but which airports do they fly from.

EDIT:-
Ok found some flights with TA from Birmingham to Bodrum but the prices were really stupid and some of the flights were taking 24 hours from start to finish, SO looks like sticking with Pegasus from Stansted.

No matter how many times I check out either other Airports or Airlines I —always— end back with choosing Pegasus Airlines and Stansted From Birmingham is fairly convenient for me.

Re: Jet2 flights 2019 - legroom on standard seats

I also like Jet2 as you feel as though you have loads of room for your legs as the pocket with all the magazines etc is eye level, not at your knees. xx

I to find Jet2 more comfortable than most other airlines.
As an aside I would be reluctant to book Thomas Cook as it looks like they may be going to the wall, share price dropped 60% in last few days.

Could that be due to the annual WINTER lull.

I think there is more to it than that from memory a couple of years back they were also struggling and had to increase their borrowing to survive.

Re: Jet2 flights 2019 - legroom on standard seats

We flew Jet2 for the first time last year. I was pleasantly surprised by them. More legroom than some of the other airlines.
I think Thomas Cook & TUI are the worst for flights to Turkey.

Re: Jet2 flights 2019 - legroom on standard seats

Try booking an aisle seat where you have room to stretch your legs alongside the seat in front. We always book each side of the aisle ( C & D). Easier to get out on arrival too.

I was also reading about TC, we have flights booked with them back to the UK in January, I'm currently keeping everything crossed. xx
