Sunshine Holiday Reviews Back Jet2 for Issuing Passengers with a Fine

Jet2, the low-cost airline, hit the headlines this year when they sent an unruly passenger a fine of nearly £5,000 after he caused the plane to make a diversion. The passenger was disruptive on-board the airport that was flying from Leeds Bradford Airport To Alicante, which resulted in the aircraft making a diversion to offload him. Sunshine Holiday Reviews, the online travel magazine believe Jet2 were right to issue the fine and would like to see more airlines follow their example.

The low-cost airline that has launched a campaign to stamp out bad behaviour on board issued the passenger with a life-long ban and a fine. Sunshine Holiday Reviews would like to see more airlines taking the same action and would like airlines to come together and go even further.

The online travel magazine believes that any passenger who is banned from one airline should be banned from all airlines, as they are a risk to other passengers and the safety of the aircraft. A spokesman for the travel magazine has said it is now time that this type of behaviour is stamped out and by airlines coming together, travelling by air could become safer.

Geoff Tims from Sunshine Holiday Reviews said: “If a person causes a plane to divert from their destination then it is only right for them to be issued with a fine. They should also be banned from all airlines operating in the UK.”

Sunshine Holiday Reviews ( asked 500 people if they thought a person who was disruptive on-board an aircraft should be banned by other airlines. The survey found that 410 people agreed a person that causes a plane to divert should be banned from all airlines in the UK. 220 of those people also said the ban should be carried out worldwide.

The travel magazine asked one hundred people who work for travel companies if they agree that a passenger who causes a plane to divert to another airport should be banned from fly with all UK airlines. 87 of those asked agreed, with 40 of them saying a passenger who causes disruption should be banned from travelling with airlines around the world.
