Excel Airways "one Class"

Fri Jan 28, 2005 1:10 am

Anyone had experience of this? After the post holiday blues (flicking through travel brochures) its seems excel airways now offer a sort of business class for about £400 return to Goa.

After reading many reviews about Excel I have to say im sceptical, my parents flew them last year, they didnt have enough meals to go round in economy and the plane was being flown by Bruce Dickinson from iron maiden! (i jest not!) which isnt meant as any sort of derogatory comment!

Ive heard people have paid the money then had to be flown back in economy due to a technical fault with 'the plane with 1st class in it!!!'

Anyone flown it? is it worth the money? We were thinking of heading to Goa but the idea of 9/10 hours of British style economy class hell is not a selling point!!

Chris!!
