Trying to book a cheap flight to Belfast for the easter holidays has proven to be quite a struggle, but, after bmibaby upped the price at the last second to £50 one way, I have settled on VZ from Birmingham. So any info would be appreciated...Do the aircraft differ from MYT onboard? How many of the fleet have been painted into the new colours? What about punctuality - as bad as MYT or better (please God not worse!)

Any other into would be great Smile

Have you tried http://www.easyjet.com?

They're doing pretty cheap flights over the Easter break.

Not flown with them myself but my mum and dad flew to Malaga and were very impressed.

They only have one aircraft in the new colours at the moment (G-JOEM, saw it for the first time on Saturday  Smile ) the other is in that hybird Airtours / MyTravel colours.

Punctuality would seem OK, they have kept to scheduled the times I've seen them at BHX.

Have you tried Flybe?

flew them to BFS only last week...very full...very efficient..very on time...very good...they're a real winner and their prices aren't matched anywhere...i went for free and paid the taxes....you'll find they do this a lot..even when Easyjet aren't doing it!
Choose VZ mate..the only way to fly to BFS!

I have heard excellent reports about MyTravel Lite also, so i'm flying them in a couple of weeks. Apparently their average delay is something like 3minutes so punctuality is excellent.

My Travel Lite are the best low cost airline i've ever flown on, I flew with them to Geneva last November and Belfast for St Patricks Day last week and all the flights were top notch. Because they use ex My Travel aircraft the layout inside G-JOEM hasnt changed from its previous owner. In November when I flew to Geneva I flew on G-CRPH, the A320 in the full my travel livery and my travel interior which was so nice, came back they cancelled my flight but thats a story i posted in the trip report section ages ago, no bad press on VZ though, they done the best they possibly could to get me home hehe. My flights to BFS were great, only went for the day and the outbound flight was on G-FHAJ which is the AIH/MYT cross scheme a/c, the most frequently used aircraft used on the BHX-BFS-BHX route. The plane is nice but the flight home from BFS was on G-JOEM and that was nicer  Smile

When you go on them, have the breakfast bun, its about £2.50 but is absolutly gorgeous! The cabin crew were always friendly, nothing was too much trouble and generally the airline is well wickid!

Good stuff...I tried easyJet but they wanted £52 one way and its a pain to get to LPL from Sheffield, so I've booked for VZ as the train goes straight to BHX (I hope!) Quite looking forward to it now that Ive got good feedback...I'll let y'all know how it goes!

Had two great flights with them recently to Paris and back. £29 rtn including tax and early both ways. Great A320 (G-FHAJ) on both flights, flies like it's on rails like any other Airbus I have been on. Legroom is not bad but rows 12 & 13 are extra legroom (overwing exits) if you're one of the first on.

Friendly crew (even on the 8pm to Paris after they had done an Alicante roundtrip!).

Definate thumbs up from me, couldn't fault them. Have a good flight.

I used to love the smell of Jet-A in the morning...
