XLOne Flights to & from St.Kitts

We have just returned from a holiday to Nevis and were very concerned as to the reliability of the XL flights after reading some posts.

There was no cause for concern at all on both flights.On the outward journey we were 15 minutes or so delayed, but the time was easily made up.The return flight was on time.

Service was exceptional both ways - nothing was too much trouble for the cabin crew. Ashleigh was fantastic on the way out, and Gavin and his crew superb on the return flight.

Considering the price we paid for the return flight £650 each approximately, we feel that, if this experience would always be provided - Virgin beware.

Seems like the extra you pay for XL One may be worth it. I have just returned to Gat wick from St Kitts this Monday 3rd and travelled coach. The plane was clearly understaffed and from take-off in Antigua it took them 2 hours and 15 mins to bring our first drink!

A family behind me payed extra to all be able to sit together. As you may guess this didn't happen and children were seperated from parents. There were also other passengers with problems, swearing to never use XL again.

The point about XL is that it is the only airline flying into the Federation from the UK, so if passengers do not want the inconvenience of connecting flights there is no other choice. It is a low cost airline and any expectations above this will be disappointed. On the positive side the fares are very low and surprisingly they have an excellent 40 kilo luggage allowance but be aware this is about to be dropped to 30 kilos!

Until somebody provides competition to St Kitts or Nevis we are stuck with XL.
