Best Airline for Long Route Journey
Member Name: freelancerbd
Advantages: Excellent food, helpful attendants, safety records of Biman Bangladesh, direct flights on long route
Disadvantages: Old aircrafts, not very comfortable, some what unhygienic
I traveled first time by Biman Bangladesh in 1999 which was a pleasant experience. It was a long gap in between when I traveled second time in 2007 from London to Dhaka via Dubai. There is no denying the fact that Biman Bangladesh is not up to world class standard when it comes to maintain flight schedule, cleanliness and hygiene. The comfort level is below good in my personal experience. However, the food is just superb, the best I have had on any flight by other carriers.
The biggest problem is the discomfort while traveling by Biman Bangladesh. The seats are not very clean and looks pretty shabby. The toilets are not clean. Apart from these, I have found everything just excellent with this national carrier of Bangladesh. The flight attendants are very helpful and always ready to help passengers. The food is very tasty and include Bangladeshi delicious items as well as western and continental items. However, choice is limited when it comes to drink juices. On long route food are served a few times, which are adequate.
Another big advantage is its direct flight that many reputed airlines do not provide. I would also like to mention that Bangladesh Biman has an excellent reputation of maintaining safety records or scores. The pilots are very efficient and experienced, in my opinion among the best in the world the way they run old aircrafts so well.
I will recommend to travel by Biman Bangladesh if you want safety, good food and to travel without stopovers.
Summary: Recommended to travel for a feel like home experience
