Advantages: Pleasant, helpful staff
Disadvantages: no individual TV's!!!
It was only a flight to Majorcca, Summer 2001, approx. 2hrs 10mins but what an absolute pleasure it was. The staff of the airline were courteous,kind and helpful throughout the trip both in the UK and in Spain. We (Wife,1 child and I) had only booked the trip three (3) days prior to departure but our tickets were ready at the airport on the day of departure, no problem. During the flight we surprised the cabin staff with a request for two vegetarian meals (we hadn't had time to order specifically prior to this) and they came up with the goods and were happy to do so. The outward flight took off exactly on time and although faced a strong headwind we arrived only about 10 mins late. On the return journey we were about 30 mins late leaving but made up almost all the time and arrived only 8 mins late-impressive. The space inside the plane was a bit cramped (an Airbus A340 I think), but you can't expect Jumbo room on a short haul flight.
The return trip was as stress free and I will be happy to use them again.
