After a terrible experience on Cathay Pacific, I was expecting much the same treatment. Completely different. I had a serious knee injury and all the staff were so kind. It was a two hour flight, no drinks were served but we received a good meal and water and coffee.

Cabin - seat surprisingly comfy, carpet clean!, magazines intact (not crumpled, torn or full of doodles), in flight entertainment was...

Working hard and fast with smile. Aircraft A320 has a bit more comfortable seat than 737. Only dislike this flight delay one and half hour, longer than...

“Choose the back row. It is more comfortable, slightly more leg room and good for couples as the seats are in 2s.”
