10th December 2018: recently welcomed a new recruit as five-year-old Mayleigh-Rae Lyttle joined cabin crew to serve passengers on a return flight from Alicante to Manchester.

Mayleigh-Rae was on her way home from a fantastic Jet2holidays break with her dad Chris Lyttle, when she was asked by cabin crew to give a helping hand with the inflight service.

Crew members gave Mayleigh-Rae, from Layton in Blackpool, a special uniform and taught her all about their award-winning customer service on the Manchester flight on December 2.

Mayleigh-Rae also raised money selling onboard game cards for and Jet2holidays’ chosen charity Hope For Children.

Proud dad Chris Lyttle said: “Mayleigh was sat in her seat watching a film when the cabin crew came over and asked her if she was OK to help them and she was absolutely buzzing.

“They dressed her up in cabin crew uniform and she was so over the moon, you can tell by the smile on her face in all the pictures I got of her.

“I actually sat there and had a little cry, it wasn’t something I expected to happen and it just topped off an absolutely fantastic holiday with Jet2holidays.

“Mayleigh hasn’t stopped telling her friends about what happened since we got back.”

After her cabin crew debut, Mayleigh was treated to a special visit to the cockpit where she met the pilot and first officer responsible for flying her home.

Phil Ward, Managing Director of, said: “At and Jet2holidays we pride ourselves on offering our customers a VIP experience from the very start of their holiday to the end of the trip.

“Our cabin crew offer fantastic customer service and always go that extra mile, so I am very pleased Mayleigh enjoyed her flight back to Manchester with us and we look forward to welcoming her and her family back on board with us again in the near future.”
