Yes i have flown with Britannia from OSL- Crete (Chania) and back .
It was nearly after Blue Scandinavia had became Britannia in summer 1998.
i flew on a B757-200, and was seated in the front of the aircraft. On the flight down, ther was little legroom, but ok ( you know it's charter) On the way back i had plenty of legroom because it was on the left side (not with an exit, but there were som seats lesser on the left side in the front cabin, because it was between the to front doors)
The service was OK not more, and the food: well, I have eaten better food on a charter flight.

I've flown with Britannia quite a few times (6 to be exact) on their 757's and 767-200's and flying on a 767-300 next year.
My flights have all been quite good, The entertainment is excellent and the food not too bad.
The longest delay I have had with them was 5 hours back in 1994.
One good thing about Britannia is the fact that they always allow flight deck visits. (Well, on my flights anyway).
The fact that I don't like is they have two different types of 767-200's one with 274 seats and the other with 290 seats, you can tell which one your on by the amount of legroom. Another plus point is that they have drinking fountains on their 767's.
There new (not quite new, two years old now) 360 service has bright cabin interiors and it makes the cabin feel more spacious.
The worst flight I have had with them was coming home from Ibiza on a 767-200. The Cabin Crew were the most unfriendly ones I have ever met. They said they had no pillows left, but I mangaged to find some in an overhead locker. They never gave any help with boarding either and stood and watched passengers struggling to find their seats. One of the center toilet doors had a big bash in it (Maybe the cabin crew don't know how to steer their trolleys). My life-vest was also lying on the floor when I got on-board. Very bumpy landing also but that is probably quite normal.
