Some of their A340's are getting very, VERY, tired in the Y cabin.
Even their A330s seem to be taking a bit of a pounding.
My last flight from PER with them, my tray table didn't have a latch and was attached with duct tape, and the window shade was stuck in the open position, no matter who tried to get it down.
I mean, obviously there are other little things but I guess that's what happens when an aircraft is busy shuttling holiday makers to and from (what is almost say) is paradise!
On the plus side, service is always exemplary, and their route network is really quite excellent, especially for connections from Southern Africa to Asia.
Congrats to them!
Moreover, the cabins of two A340, two A330 and two A319 will also undergo refurbishment leading to an alignment of the standard of equipment across the fleet.
