    Jabba the Hutt tells Bib Fortuna: I told you not to admit him( paraphrasing) . How did Jabba know Luke was on his way to save his companions?

    He would have little birds everywhere, with communication devices. I am guessing that is how he would know. Maybe Luke didn't care about being seen landing his ship and all.

    Luke (in his hologram message to Yoda): "I seek an audience with Your Greatness to bargain for Solo’s life." (Which is followed by a veiled threat of: "...enable us to avoid any unpleasant confrontations."

    Jabba knew Luke was coming because Luke told him so in the message :)

    What Angelman said above me.

    Also, at this point in time everybody in the galaxy knew Luke, Leia and Han as a team. I believe Jabba knew it was only a matter of time before Luke showed up on his doorstep, looking for his best friend.

    I love the idea that Fortuna was expected to say: "Sorry, Skywalker, I'm not allowed to let you in..." and Luke would just turn around and walk away...
