I flew Eastern from NCL
back in March last year and it was a very good experience. "Unfortunately", the work travel agents made a mess of my booking, meaning that I simply had to buy a one-way ticket a couple of hours before the flight at a cost of GBP 160 (I didn't care as I wasn't paying...!). They gave me a pass to the BA
Terraces lounge at Newcastle where I sank a few G&Ts and had some sandwiches, before being escorted to the Jetstream 41 for the 40 minute flight to Aberdeen. Yes, the plane was quite old and quite noisy BUT the service was excellent (yes, I got two glasses of champagne!), the views were magnificent (the windows seemed huge!), the legroom was excellent (very comfortable leather seats), the cabin was so small that deplaning took literally two minutes and there was plenty of room on board as hardly anybody had handluggage that was small enough to be taken into the cabin. All in all, I was mightily impressed by Eastern. Oh, and we left NCL
25 minutes early as everybody (except me, I was in the BA
Terraces Lounge!) was already on board. We arrived in ABZ
35 minutes ahead of the scheduled flight time.
