Is Malev Any Good? Safe? Reliable?

Tue Apr 10, 2001 2:28 am

My father has to rush across the Atlantic (to Europe), and the lowest fare has come down to be on MALEV. I, personally, do not know much about the airline, so I was wondering if anyone could tell me how it is (regarding service, and most importantly, safety). Should we go with it, or try for a more expensive carrier?

Bon Voyage,
L'EspaceA340


P.S.
The route will be flown with a 767 across the Atlantic and a 737 on the second leg.

I've flown MA twice JFK-BUD and would recommend them. All flights were on time with cordial cabin and airport staff. MA seems like a well run airline. Very young fleet now with the TU-154s retired.
I'd book them without fear.

I've flown them HEL-BUD-HEL and was frightened the entire flight because the aircraft i flew on was TU-154B2.
