I Have been looking through some on the 35 charter flights i have taken since 2002 (cant remember before then) and have picked out one of the best experiences from these.

Airline - JMC
Aircraft - A330-243 - G-OJMC -
Service - JMC+
Date: November 2002
Dep: Manchester - MAN
Arrival: Sanford - SFB

The Fine details have skipped my mind, this is a brief overview

Seen Looking Very Nice Hear

Check In

It was early in the morning and the first thing you really want to see in the early morning is a bright green checkin area, already seen enough of it at EMA never mind Manchester. After a swift check in at manchester at the JMC+ desk i was through passport control before you could say John Mason Cook.

Departure Through To Landing

I thought to myself, why should i pay extreme prices for drinks on board i will stock up from Boots of all places. Meanwhile forgetting the drinks are free on board. I was hoping that the flight would be on time, met up with a few friends and had a wonder to the departure gate, also picking up a new pair of sunglasses for the bright green and settling in for the flight.

At the time i wondered why i had chosen JMC for this trip of 32 days but i remember thinking the only options were Britannia or JMC and i wanted to try to + product.

The plane was pulled onto the stand and JMC+ passengers were asked to board. I had my sunglasses at the ready because i wasnt too sure what to expect from the inside of this aircraft, were the seats going to be bright green, was the entertainment system going to be as broken as something thats broken. No. The seats were sort of cream leather, the same as they are with Thomas Cook now, when i travelled in January 2005.

I settled into my seat 2AB with my other half and took a look at the cabin. There was a blanket, ammenity kit and various things on the seats including water, all of this still received with thomas cook now all be it not green.

On the screen was the message "Welcome Aboard" with the logo "JMC" and a little music playing. Headphones were included in the price. (Something which Thomas Cook have spoilt the entertainment system)

I had a wonder to the back of the cabin because i knew my friend would be there, a few minutes was spent there whilst the cabin crew prepared for departure.

The cabin just like this all apart from the colour

Free drinks were offered, meal choices taken and safety video shown and we were on our way.

9 or so hours over the atlantic recieving two fantastic meals, free drinks and the best cabin service to date, before touching down in Sanford ahead of schedule for some villa hunting.

Return Trip

The return trip was very much the same as the outbound. Same aircraft and no delays. Although my TV screen did not work initially a quick reset of the system solved this problem.

I hope this was a little insight into JMC all that time ago, i do have more mainly shorthaul but thats another story

Hi There  

A good review from memory!

They sound like a good carrier to Fly with. I just love the JMC concept of Bold and beautiful.

I suppose It depends if you like loud colours (lime green) like me!   

I was supposed to fly JMC in 2002, but the flight was changed to Iberworld. I wish I could have got the opportunity to fly with them, because I love their style and the bubble seats in the Cabins.

I must say how good it is to read a JMC review. Keep them coming A321fly!  

If I ever have a chance to be a manager of an Airline, I can't wait to get down to creating some of the must funky cabins (like JMC), and using the loudest colours for the livery (like JMC) !

Just a shame John Mason Cooks Dad, Thomas Cook gained control of the Airline and so the funky bubble seats where replaced with some usual blue seats. I suppose he started it all though, so he does deserve a lot of credit for that!

Regards, Ryan

I forgot to mention in the orginal version that the Entertainment system on the return was very on/off most of the way it just kept resetting. Which was annoying as i am not a sleeper.
