What can I do when I receive error code ej2 exception?

  • Problem
  • Updated 2 years ago
  • Solved
I'm trying to book a flight, but it keeps coming back with "Sorry, but something has gone wrong. [ej2 exception]". It happens right at the end of the process, after I have entered my payment details and bank password thingy.

"My Easyjet" isn't showing any bookings. I hope it's right, cos otherwise I've probably booked half the plane by now.

Hi Chris,

I am sorry you faced problems during booking your flight. ej2 exception is a common error code. IT has worked on this during recent days, this problem should be fixed by now.

Since you checked your My easyJet.com account and didn't find the booking, it is very unlikely it has been completed. I would like to ask to start over again and book your flights.

In the most unlikey case there is a duplicate booking easyJet would refund the one you wouldn't need.

Cheers
James

Today is the February 28th and for the last 2 weeks I have not been able to book an easyjet flight because of this ej2 error. Why does the error persist if easyjet knew about the problem 2 months ago
?

It appears as though Easyjet does not refund your total amount. Is that true?

Yeah, I tried again a couple of hours later and was able to buy a ticket.

Since this is "a common error code", maybe you should add something about it to your FAQ?

Problem has not been solved in any way, shape or form. Sort it out easyjet and quick.

I'm having the exact same problem. I've tried:

Deleting cookies and temporary internet files
I've also tried two browsers (Firefox and IE)
I've tried creating a new user account
I've tried two credit cards

Makes no difference. I'm running Vista if that makes any difference.

I'm having the same problem. Could Easyjet please look into this issue as it is affecting many of its potential passengers?

I'm having the same problem. I've been trying for 2 weeks.

I have deleted cookies and temporary internet files
I have tried 4 different pc's
I have tried 2 browsers (IE and Chrome)
I have tried 2 different credit cards (VISA Electron and VISA)
I have created a different account

But the problem persists....

I was told to book via phone but the Call Center is very busy because of recent disrumptions.... After 4 calls (cost about 15€) I had to give up.

I usually book dozens of flight a year and never had such a problem.

I got the same problem, there is no solution at the moment, the removal of temp. files cookies etc does not solve this problem. I have tried several computers but still not been able to book a flight. According to Easy Jet the IT dept. is working on this one, it seems to take a long long time

I must have tried about 15 times to book flights today using various credit and debit cards, I'm getting really fed up. The live chat help just directs you to the customer care line where you pay 10p a minute and can expect a 30 minute wait - useless!

well after trying again this morning, I paid in euros in stead of sterling and I finally was able to go ahead with the booking. Frankly too bad if you have a choice of currencies. I am not over impressed!

"The company marked this problem solved"
This problem is absolutely NOT SOLVED.

Claudio,

Easyjet's employees seem to assume that writing a message on this site saying there isn't a problem, despite the fact that there is, somehow 'solves' the problem. Which, of course, it doesn't.

It's evident to everyone except Easyjet that its website is severely broken in multiple respects - unfortunately their customer services staff seem to think that an unhelpful response to a genuine problem on this site somehow solves matters. Which, of course, it doesn't.

Oh well. Happy New Year...

Search here for Easyjet to get a cheaper number to phone if you are in the UK.

I eventually booked with BA, because I gave up on this problem.

Is ANYONE actually able to book? It's unbelievable that easyjet are just pretending nothing is wrong with regards to this.

I booked another flight today without adding a hotel and then it worked, so i wonder if it has to do with the hotel that I added initially or if it's solved now.

Hello

I have exactly the same problem and I have been trying to book a flight for 3 days now! The answer from the Easyjet chat is to call their call center: 30 minutes wait at least... I think I will book an Air France flight....

It's now 26 days since this was first reported and still it's not possible to book flights - have tried 3 times today on 2 browsers, all with the "ej2 exception"?

Don't EasyJet need passengers anymore?
