What Are Your Opinions Of VG?

Wed Oct 17, 2007 12:05 pm

I'll be flying VG JER-LCY on the F50 in Nov. I haven't yet flown VG, so I'd appreciate your feedback of it from your personal experiences. Thanks.

I have flown with them quite a lot. I like them very much. Nice (and sometimes very pretty female) F/A's and service all around. I have never experienced any delays (over 15 flights with them), so they are good with their performance as well. Hope you will enjoy them as much as I do.

Cheers!  wave

I like them too and use them often to fly from LCY to MAN or LPL. Its always exciting flying into LCY with them as their F50 aircraft make you feel a bit like Peter Pan flying over the city of London. On evening services there was a bar and snack service (sandwich or fruit) served very efficiently by the complement of two crew members. They can have some of the best late fares available and the best thing ever is that with this airline my bags are normally in the luggage hall before I am!
It can be a bit noisy when the props start up but I always find it a bit nostalgic and a bit like being back in the good old days of flying - you can almost imagine the pilot leaning out the window and shouting chocks away. I would be quite upset if I got on their RJ (if they still have it)

A niche carrier doing a good job I find.
