Airline / Flight Review Sites - Good Or Bad?

Thu Sep 30, 2004 7:58 am

I'm sure we've all come across those airline / flight review sites.

What makes me laugh on these sites are the reviews for charter airlines - the reviews are often bad, with the main complaints being delays and lack of legroom.

I can't believe how stupid some of these reviewers are - if you want better punctuality from an airline, don't fly a charter. If you want more leg room, don't fly a charter. If you want to avoid charter airlines full stop, don't book package holidays!

Geez...some people!

try www.carsurvey.org/air

I love reading the ones about Air New Zealand - especially when it's a complaint about their leg room on long haul - 34" pitch and people still moan!

Well unfortunately some people don't have a choice in this matter. Or rather, alternative choices are usually more than double the price! There are some cities that are simply way too expensive to fly to and stay, particularly honeymoon-type cities. I'm pressuming most coach flyers end up booking on some package tour where they are mostly concerned about accomodations anyway.
Its better to be on the ground wishing you were in the air than be in the air wishing you were on the ground. Fly safe!
