Westjet!!!!-far better than any other canadian 'budget' option.
as for the uS, havent flown with any of them, hear that american west are good, are they low cost?
for europe, GO are excellent, they are more money than ryanair which is the biggest(and britains second biggest airline, yes its know based i the UK!) yet they have better service and i havent expericened delays- i have with ryanair!
with ryanair i flew with them before they went really cheapo-what a mistake!the flgiht attendent, instead of giving out the peanuts, gave them to the people at the front to pass back!
the other flight attendent serving refreshments decided to throw the packets of snacks at people to catch, unfortunately she didnt have a good aim and managed to hit my neighbour with a packet. I have never seen anything like this in all my life!
My parents flew with them a couple of weeks ago, ryanair managed to miss their slot at standsted and decided to just fly around until they got dizzy! lol, no seriously, my parents were delayed for 3 hours by them and a 1hr 20 min flight turned into 2 hours! seeing that they were only flying to shannon in ireland i thought that a 3 hours delay because the plane was sent to the wrong airport was a bit much!
as for easyjet, another low-cost carrier, well what can i say?
I flew with easyjet from london luton(londons 4th airport) to Liverpool speke. It was a sit anywhere policy, which i thought was a good idea. the seat was comfortable and from what i could see was a new 737. The flight on the way out was quite good, no throwing of snacks, just a little cute trolley with refreshments you could buy, at high street prices. the f/as were friendly and very apologetic when i complained that they had run out of airline models, they gave me a free drink. so i was happy ish and thought, oh for 2o pounds, they are ok, good value.
anyway spent my day in liverpool, visiting the uni and the town, great place by the way. Got back to liverpool an hour and 30 mins before it was due take off, you had to be there 1/2 hour beforehand if i recall.
so checked it, went up to the cafes and shops and waited and waited.15 mins before we were due to take off i wondered when we were going to start boarding, so i went up to the nearest member of staff who said she didnt know and would get back to me.
Anyway we were called to the gate. so i thought oh well a couple of mins wont hurt.We sat down and waited and waited. 50 mins had past and nothing, not one annoucement and we should have been in luton by now.no apology no nothing.
well i found two members of staff and asked and we finally borded about 15 mins after that.
anyway we are now sitting on the aircraft and i noticed there was engineers on the ground, more than normal , i thought hold on were are about to take off. we didnt. in fact we were taken off the plane and put on another easyjet plane due to techincal difficulties, the reason was that the plane as landing, decided to run down a couple of seagulls, one was splatted on the front screen apparentely and the other one was caught up in an engine and it was decided that as abird strike had happened better safe than sorry...
so we borded and then took of, one mention of the word sorry, that was it. I asked and asked until they said what the real reason was. I then waited for the refreshments trolley, it didnt come-they had left it on the other plane, along with the airline models. oh dear.
well we got to luton and i was not going to take no for an answer-low cost or not nobody has that level of incompetence and doesnt appear to be remourseful. I managed to get an airline model out of them and they said it would be on its way, it took them 4 weeks, by then i had a mousemat out of them as well.
so easyjet arent my favourite people, i have also watched airline, a docu-soap all about them, my godness im not flying with them again.
as for buzz, never flown with them , heard they are quite good.
It is amazing what can be accomplised when nobody takes the credit
