Advantages: Nice, friendly staff
Disadvantages: Cramped, stuffy, substandard food
Having travelled with Airtours on two previous occasions, I decided to book a last minute deal with them again in December to Las Vegas.
The holiday itself was fantastic. Stayed at the MGM Grand and the reps couldn't have been more friendly and informative.
HOWEVER...the same cannot be said of the flights!! Before booking....remember that this destination incurs an 11 hour flight...not nice even with best airlines. The flight going out wasn't too bad. Staff were extremely friendly, food wasn't too bad and we experienced no delays.
Coming back was a different matter however. We arrived at McCarran airport at Midday only to discover that a 5 hour delay was waiting. This 5 hour delay turned into a 9 hour delay and I can honestly say it was the most DIRE flight of my life!! The food was awful and had been overheated, so tasted of the plastic container. Everyone was moaning and complaining of the lack of space and leg room. Honestly, it was awful.
So the moral of this story is:
You get what you pay for! Airtours, like most other holiday companies, pack them in like sardines with very little leg room. Be warned...if you're going long-haul, then pay an extra £30 and book extra legroom seats near the exits. If you don't..then you wiil regret it..trust me!
