Today's flight was on a domestic config B788. again, 10 abreast, but still lots of legroom & was comfy for a quick domestic hop.
The problem is ancillary revenue is now often priced significantly higher than providing the actual service. Worst example for me is Neos: €90 to bring a 23kg bag on a 1:15min flight. Yes, very expensive, but at least it is a fixed price - so you know what to pay!!! In my own opinion, flexible rate...Jump to post

It operates flights of about 4-5hrs. It’s perfectly adequate.

Same as on all ULCCs these days but Cebu is the first placing them in a wide body aircraft. Personally I prefer it, with such a narrow seat pitch you can't have reclining seats. The seat pitch is not the problem as long as the seats remain straight up. If the seat would come along with a moveable, ...Jump to post
Very difficult decision to choose from. CONDOR schedules the flight to CUN with the ex ETIHAD A330-200, which is a Premium compared to their outdated B767 fleet, especially in Biz!
