Had a chance to fly FR yesterday (Nantes in France (NTE) to Bournemouth (BOH)) on one of their new 737-800s. I neither love or hate FR but it is functional and does the job, normally at a good price (two of us booked the night before and cost 90 Euro for two off BA at 800 quid!!).
However, I'm fully aware of all the money saving schemes FR has such as pay for everything extra, but the inside of these jets is cheap, nasty, gaudy colours and lots of plastic.
My one question is, why no seat back pocket? I've never not had one before and really missed it - moreso having my six year old daughter with me and I needed somewhere to put all her kit (colouring books etc!!).
