OK, so we're going back over many, many years here, but what are your best UK charter airlines over the years.

For me (and from experience)
1. Orion Airways - simply fantastic! How we miss you!!

Close second goes to the 'old' Britannia, a true classic. May you return (in classic livery) when TUI realise what a balls they have made of everything!!!!)

I have no experience with any UK-based charter airline. I'll just second Capital146's sentiment over Britannia's old livery - I think it was one of the best liveries around.

Hey,

Best: Caledonian, on the good old DC-10, and those tartan uniforms were awesome! Closely followed by FCA, I always find them enjoyable.

Yet to have a worst, though I found BY pretty bog standard,

Hi,

The best has to be MyTravel Airways for the excellent value they offer, stunning livery and friendliness onboard:

The worst place has to be taken by Britannia... sorry Thomsonfly.com! Worst livery, charge for everything - no value and very cheap and tacky:

I have never had a bad experience with a UK Charter Carrier, but if I was to pick an airline which didn't really impress me it would have to be...

Monarch Airlines.  thumbsdown

I love this photo!

Worst is a bit more difficult as many people fail to give them credit for trying to run as best a service as possible on crazy turnaround times - a sort of LCC and full service hybrid!

So everyone lay of UK charters!

If our votes really made a difference politicians would not let us have them.
