A middle of the range airline which flies from Gatwick to Florence and Turin. I recently went skiing in Italy and used Meridiana. They are a reliable airline with comfortable seats and plenty of legroom. There are no tellies but they have a very good in flight magazine and they will provide you with a daily newspaper at the beginning of your journey. The flight from Gatwick to Turin is about 1 hour 30 minutes and it is a nice flight. The standard of air and oxygen inside the plane was of a very high standard and the pressure was very good. The crew makes the journey as relaxing as possible and throw in a free drink to everyone on board. The food wasn’t exactly luxury but it was not too bad. It consisted of two rolls, one ham and one cheese with an after dinner mint chocolate. Then the crew bought round coffee. If you are looking for a quick, cheap, no hassle flight then I recommend Meridiana as a good choice.
Meridiana is an Italian Airline which operates between Florence and Gatwick three times daily. It is not a "no frills" outfit; meals and drinks are provided and tickets issued, so it is not cheap. Last year, my fare was £160 inc taxes, this year, £170.50 - return in both cases and Apex, so they were fixed as to which particular flight I took. However, I cannot speak too highly of the service they provide. Thay use BAe 126 aircraft which hold about 100 passengers, so loading and unloading is quick and easy. The cabin staff charming and attentive and mostly very attractive.
