I personally think they're all good, more or less only falling short on legroom and perhaps punctuality. I like flying charter as the service is easily more comprehensive than most scheduled flights, even on flights of around two hours. I personally would say that it's maybe First Choice who are the ground breakers, especially regarding the refurbishment plans for the 767s. Its a pity too that MYT may be with us for not much longer - I've very good memories of flying with them when they were AIH. But give me a charter over an LCC anyday!

I also really like flying charter! usually because it means i'm on my holidays! As BFS have said, they are all much of a muchness, but i'll give my opinions...

First Choice - Leading the way! Excellent service, and the new 767 aircraft will have more legroom and better PTVs than BA and Virgin... go on!

Thomas Cook - Again very good, perhaps only falling behind First Choice because of FCA's new long haul programme.

Britannia - Always were the ones to aspire to. Always taken as "the best", and not without good reason. However in the last couple of years, with TUI and everything a lot of people feel that the service etc has dropped a lot, which is a shame as Thomson/Britannia have (had?) a huge loyal customer base.

MyTravel - Again a good company overall. Not having a good time of it at the moment, and could especially do with the press laying off, everyone picks up when MYT have a 30 hour delay, but never when the others do. However, still a lot of people have great flights with them. MyTravel either get it spot on, or way off the mark!

Monarch - They also used to have a good reputation in charter but it seems its all gone to pot. They're punctuality has slipped a lot the last few years, getting worse while everyone else is getting better. Its a shame, I've had some great flights with them. I think they're concentrating a lot on their schedueld side (which is great!) but perhaps too much... at the expense of their charter customers?

I love charter flights!!!!!

I know there are bad rumours about them and everything but when i travelled on Air scandic it thought they were great.

I also like Monarch and First choice. My carrer ambition is to be cabin crew but i coulddn't work for FCA with having to wear a bright pink uniform

Hi,

BFS - MyTravel will be with us for a long time to come. They are expected to announce 'break even' results in the next few days which is great news.

Regards
