I'm not wanting to rain on your parade, because at the end of the day a 20% reduction has got to be welcomed almost however you look at it.
However, as a regular flyer I have issues with JET2. A number of years ago they spotted a hole in the 'Yorkshire market' - i.e. folk who were hacked off with having to travel to Manchester or beyond to get a reasonably priced air ticket. They pitched in at Leeds/Bradford at a tantalizing 'supplement' of £30 (per person !) or so above other airports, but making it attractive in terms of travelling/petrol & parking charges. Then they campaigned that they were 'low cost' & (most recently, when 'low cost' didn't stack-up) 'friendly'
Of course there'll be the odd exception (which I expect to be pulled-up on!) but now that Ryanair (& others) are rivaling them in the 'Northern' airports you'll generally find that they are way overpriced compared to the competition.
I know this is long winded, & that Ryanair & others are not everyone's cup-of-tea, And I'm certainly not intending to put off people from posting potential good deals, but my experience of JET2 compels me to give my thoughts.

Just go to Manchester then and save the £30 Yorkshire supplement

I don't need to. I can go from 'Yorkshire' with Ryanair (or Monarch) which I think is one of the points I made in my post.
