Pros: Boarding was fast and the ticket price cheap
Cons: Entertainment or food, one of them

Cons: It was delayed by 4 hours
Pros: short peaceful ride. Not much food could be served.
Cons: Really bad boarding controll, contributing to grumpy patrons. Just poor management and efficiency created by the airlines with a last minute gate change, but in addition, the personnel were irratable and not well motivated or trained to manage the crowd.
Cons: Snack was packaged bread stick bits. No flavor. Must take of headsets for take off and landing.
Pros: The price was excellent, the (A330) plane was in good clean condition, they provided with blankets, pillows and headphones. The food was better than most airlines I have travelled on and the entertainment was okay but not as good I would have wanted. Overall, I would say 4 stars all round.
Cons: Entertainment could have had more on offer, the plane was generally cold, an on-board wifi on their major (A330) planes would have been helpful and upgrades to their short haul planes would be good too.
Cons: There was some delay.
Pros: I liked the info I was getting from the airline, through sms. And everything was on time.
Cons: The in-flight entertainment was there but no headphones, which makes it useless. The flight was short but still.
