EMA-Palma With Iberworld

I've just got back from a great holiday in Cala Barca, Majorca but I'm upset at the moment- my poor little rabbit Snowey has sadly passed away.

Though the holiday was superb, the hotel clean, regular entertainment and scenic settings, much worse can be said of flight IWD 3444, departing from East Midlands at 17.40 and arriving in Palma at 21.20, on 19.9.00 traversing over London, Southampton, Paris, South-West France, Northern Spain and then into Majorca.
The flight was chartered by JMC, the result of a merger of SunWORLD, Sunset, Inspirations and World Choice, and in-house airlines Caledonian, Flying Colours and Peach Air.
A huge thunder storm was occuring as we made our way through the mist and boarded at the rear exit of the A-320 (I couldn't see the registration).
We climbed up the air-stairs and were greeted by a stewardess in the fairly inconspicuous airline Uniform of a royal blue jacket and skirt, white blouse and yellow scarf and a light blue waist-coat. We were seated in 20 A,B and C. The seats are black, with a gold wavy pattern embroided on them, and a white headrest which is made of a papery material.
I will at this moment point out that Iberworld's safety regulations appear to be slightly poor. I did not have a safety card, and during the safety demonstration, there was no mention of sick-bags, toilets, brace positions or nearest exits. I was also aware that a bag was blocking the aisle in take-off.
I thought that this was a very dramatic take-off. We were in the clouds prior to even leaving the airport grounds.
Once at a cruising altitude of 36,000 ft, the cabin crew announced that a bar would take place. I asked for some orange juice. There was NO in-flight entertainment, and the meal was uncooked, tasteless and the little that I stomached made me feel sick. I understand that JMC have no say in the services their customers are provided with if they are not travelling with JMC Airlines themselves, but surely they should ensure the carriers they are using meet certain standards.
I accept and appreciate the work the cabin crew put into every flight, and as Iberworld is a Spanish airline, these crew would have to cope with what are to them, foreign people speaking a strange language. However, smiling is a language we all know, apart from this crew, apparently . I don't know what they were called, but Ms. Heavyhands would be a suitable title for all of them.
As we arrived in Majorca, it was black, but the lights on the ground were attractive and bright.
Another safety concern- but this time, of no fault of the airlline. Peaople were getting up and moving whilst the aircraft was still moving. I think people should treat their cabin crew with the utmost respect and LISTEN TO THEM.
I enjoyed my flight however many faults I found with them.
I hope you liked reading this, and if you have flown with Iberworld, could you please post it in this forum? Thank you!
Happy flying,
(NB: Inbound flight report coming soon)

I warned you!
As I said in your post, asking what Iberworld were like, I have never flown them, but I have Air Europa(AEA), it too had no in flight entertainment,the head covers were also some sort of papery thing,and lack of afety cards ect. too, our F/A's looked like they had slept in their uniforms for 6 weeks, AEA have the most hard dramatic landings possible, and you get thrown about the aircraft, and if you complain about something, they just look at you blankly, everything is in spanish, which, I think they should have an english version too.
the food is mostly chickin and rice of some sort of "mystery meat salad" which is watery and tasteless, but luckily, we are flying Britannia in 2 weeks time Hooray, a proper airline with proper maintained aircraft, not kept together with scotch tape.
