Airline Jet2 have responded after an increased number of complaints from passengers with regards to the repeated plays of ‘Hold My Hand’ by Jess Glynne on their flights.
The company have been using the hit single from her massive-selling 2015 album ‘I Cry When I Laugh’ extensively during recent advertising campaigns, and on their flights too.
However, a great many have taken to social media to complain about hearing it so frequently during flights.
“That Jess Glynne song on Jet 2 planes makes me wanna smash my head against the window,” wrote one passenger. Another added: “The worst thing about flying with Jet 2 is having to hear jess Glynne about six times.”
See just a few of the many complaints on Twitter below.

In response, a Jet2 spokesperson told NME: “Our ‘Hold My Hand’ concept is very popular with customers, and we receive a huge amount of positive feedback about both the advert and the song.”
