The flight delayed by an hour, but the airline phoned me the day before to inform me of the delay. The flight was pleasant and not too full. The meals were average but not bad and the service was friendly. The in-flight entertainment system could use an upgrade.

We paid to fly business class but were very disappointed with the seats they were the most uncomfortable we had ever sat in. They were not flat beds and the angle that we had to lie in made it almost impossible to sleep.

On the outbound flight as soon as the online checkin opened I was on the computer trying to book a seat with extra legroom, I'm 6ft 2 but as nearly all the seats where already automatically allocated there was no chance of changing them. This also happen on the return flight. As for the seats themselves the legroom is limited...

Due to our flight from LHR to CDG being severely delayed we missed our connection from CDG to MRU. After considerable difficulties and no promise of a flight to finish our journey we were given overnight hotel accommodation and instructed to return to the airport next day. However we were given a flight that afternoon. But when we were given...

We set off from Birmingham international airport for the short hop across the channel to Paris Charles de Gaulle . We arrived in Paris on time and thought we would have a wonder around whilst waiting for our connecting flight to Mauritius. We had a four hour connection which I was aware of and had planned it that way. It...

Well, 12 hours first of all, I'm not a fan of planes but hey it would have been longer by boat and teleportation doesn't exist "yet". The Big plane we took was actually one of the best I had. Great service. Great Staff. Economy food but never the less it was pretty good (I work in catering i can tell)....

Check in: Quick, friendly service. Only one cabin bag allowed per person. Flight: On time both ways. Cabin staff: Not overly friendly or helpful. My seat was broken and reclined every time I leant on it. Annoying and uncomfortable for me on an 11 hour night flight and annoying for the person sitting behind me. I reported it to a...

Lovely flight and friendly service. But the leg room was non existent, thank goodness it was only a 4-5 hour flight. We were packed in like sardines. Very unpleasant. Unfortunately price dictated no option. Okay for a short flight.
