| Flew out of Leeds Bradford airport on 17 Aug 2017. Arrived at the airport at 04.00 in good time for the 06.30 Jet2 Palma flight, as we didn't wish to get involved in long queues if time was tight. Jet2 check in swift and pleasant with no issues and minor queues. Security again was relatively quiet and minor queues, so got through quickly. We then went to the executive lounge (pre booked) only to find it didnt open until 05.00, so had a quick look around shops which were extremely limited in number and choice. We then found seats while we waited for lounge to open. Why does the lounge not open until 5am when flights checking in from 03.30? Whilst we were sat in the lounge we could see the departures filling up rapidly and when we went to board our plane departures was crowded with people sat on floor and cases due to no seating. Another small issue was no toilets in lounge so had to leave lounge and make your way through crowds to toilets at far end, queue for them and then make your way back through crowds, not ideal. All in all it was an expensive experience for the three of us for 45 minutes use. Usual queue at departure gate which moved swiftly and Jet2 staff smiling and cheerful despite being so busy. Swift boarding via the airbridge and an ontime departure. Our return from Palma was delayed to late inbound aircraft due to weather. On arrival back at Leeds we parked on stand 11 and was met by buses which transfered us quickly back to the terminal. We were lucky to be first off bus so joined the small security queue from a previous flight and got through reasonably quickly. Watching other planes land whilst queueing for security we realised how busy it was going to get very shortly. Cheerful immigration staff and a Jet2 customer helper to keep things moving. About a 15 min wait for bag reclaim during which time the arrivals filled up rapidly. I think we were lucky with our timings on arrival, looking at the planes landing and crowds coming in behind us can only imagine how busy it was going to be. On this occasion it was a pleasant experience, on previous occasions it was nowhere near as good.
