Advantages: Bright and Fresh cabins, Friendly Crew, Nice Food
Disadvantages: Delay (could it be helped?)
In January 2004 we flew from Teesside Airport to Grenoble (France) (flight AMM 591C) where we were going skiing for a week. Ok, it was dissapointing that we got a 4 hour delay on the outward journey, but considering it happens most times I fly, I've began to accept that its just a fact of life, and that we all can be late and things break down!
We were issued with £5.00 vouchers to get a meal from the food court, but we went to the Airport Bar which did bar meals, and much better value for money!
Finally when the plane came, and had been cleaned out, we boarded and I was really impressed to see that the old dingy interior that air 2000 used to have, had been done away with. They had introduced a bright and fresh cabin, with jade (first choice green) leatherete seats. The crew were very bright in their barbie pink uniforms, they looked great though! The aircraft was a boeing 757 which seemed brand new, as it had smaller and more swish bulk head lockers.
We were served with a choice of hot crusty rolls, bacon and tomato, or scrambled egg and cheese. My sister didn't want hers, so i was fortionate to try one of each flavour. They were really nice. We were served with tea, coffee and squash. The bar service came before the food though!
Landed smoothly into Grenoble, earlier than scheduled, with the delay and were met Petra, our fabulous hotel rep, shame I couldn't say the same about the hotel!
On the retutrn journey, (flight AMM 591D) we departed Grenoble earlier than scheduled, and was a little dissapointed that we were served with the same kind of sandwiches like the outbound flight! Never the less they were nice and I had my sisters sandwich too! When we landed into Teesside, I didnt want to get off the plane, I love flying, and the seats weren't too bad for economy!
I'd definantely recomend Air 2000 / First Choice Airways, they are super!
