I was in East Midlands for work and decided to head to Malta for a weekend from there. With Jet2based in East Midlands, I thought it was about time to check out their pre-order dishes. I managed to add one meal to my booking and then reached out to their social media team to help me order a few more, so I could get some decent photos and sample them too. I did not eat all the meals shown below; I only tasted a few. It would have been way too much food for one person.

Jet2 meals are not included in the price of your ticket, so if you want a hot meal onboard, you have to pre-order it. The meals offer great value when compared to similar offerings on other airlines in Europe. Meals start from only £7.50 including a free drink, and there are 11 options to choose from. On this flight, I managed to take a look at five pre-order meal options.


First off the crew were lovely, very down to earth and happy to be at work. Was great to see. Right after take off they delivered a box and a meal to me.

Inside the box, you have everything that you need for your meal including…

Milk, butter, fresh fruit, muffin, bread roll and a cutlery pack.

And now comes the greedy bit.

Here are the other meals that I sampled. Include options (from the top, left to right) Sausage and Mash, Chicken Tikka Masala, Penne Bolognese and the rich beef casserole. I managed to give away two meals to my seat neighbours, who were wondering why I had so many meals in front of me. They enjoyed their choices, as I did too. I think the meals are delicious, quite similar to what you will receive on other UK based charter/low-cost airlines. The best part is the pricing, very well priced indeed.
