They are a low cost airline so you don't expect much, the seats where ok, the food was over priced as always, the staff friendly and the flight was good. All in all not bad, I would recommend for short haul.

Drama free, very friendly cabin staff. As we booked via Thomson oddly we couldn't pre-book to be together (family of 4) However once on board on the way out the cabin staff found 2 seats together that were unoccupied so my daughters could be together so thank you! On the way back the check in lady found 4 seats together...
