    Germania Economy (short haul)

    London to Kerkyra
    on: A319

    8.4

    Germania's plane was smart and clean and the multinational crew very friendly and efficient in both directions. A bonus was the meal and drinks, which was unexpected, although this was a tour operator charter, so this would have been included in the package price. Blankets, pillows and headsets ...

    British Airways Economy

    London to Antigua
    on: B777-200 (Three class)

    5.6

    Both legs to the Caribbean were on BA's Gatwick long-haul fleet with old-style small TVs and the meals/amenity kits that were generally not great. Films were difficult to watch due to the small TV and poor volume controls. The crew were cheerful, as they would be with a stopover in the ...

    Excellent meal service with great biryani but seat a little lumpy for sleeping. Films hard to hear because of poor headphones. Otherwise all good.

    SriLankan Airlines Economy

    on: A330-200

    6.3

    This aircraft had an outdated economy section with tiny TVs that were difficult to watch, especially as the system was not on demand. Seats were otherwise roomy, especially in the middle block of three that I had to myself. Crew are attentive and friendly and the 11 hours didn't seem too much of a ...

    Middle East Airlines Economy (short haul)

    on: A330-200

    7.1

    MEA uses a wide-body aircraft on the London routes, which has excellent legroom and generally feels spacious. A filling meal is offered and the films are new release. For a four hour flight, it's very good.

    British Airways Economy (short haul)

    on: Embraer 190

    5.8

    Edinburgh to London City. Excellent legroom on this new airliner with a smart look to the interior. A glass of wine and a snack were just about appropriate on this 7pm flight, but if you've been stuck in meetings all day this might not be enough. Otherwise pretty faultless, speedy boarding ...

    Ethiopian Airlines Economy (short haul)

    on: B757-200ER (config 1)

    5.6

    Heathrow to Addis on a 757 in economy. The aircraft was tatty but food good and service generally enthusiastic. Entertainment is via overhead screens, but as this was an overnight flight, this was not really an issue. Eight hours on this narrow body is just about enough, but overall, not a bad ...

    A three-hour plus flight from the Congo to Addis in business class. Seats are big armchair style and very comfortable for a day time flight. Choice of three main lunch dishes with full service including salad, cheese and biscuits and dessert. Excellent choice of wines and Champagne, but the best ...

    Addis to Heathrow on a 767. This aircraft carries the older style business seat, ie not flat in any way. This meant that it was not too comfortable, but I still managed to sleep. I was in 1J, which faces the bulkhead and the galley. This meant that it was a little noisy and that legroom was ...

    A ninety minute economy flight from Mumbai to Bengaluru included breakfast, drinks and full in-flight entertainment programme with free headphones. I can't really fault it although the legroom isn't that great.

    on: A330-300

    7.4

    A new aircraft with very stylish decor and hi-tech entertainment system. Legroom is very generous at 34 inches and proved comfortable for the eight hour flight. Power points are a plus, as is wi-fi, although there is a charge for this. The crew were enthusiastic and food very good. Alcohol ...

    InterJet was a very pleasant surprise. New planes, massive legroom and crisps and Corona thrown in. On time flights both ways from Mexico City to Cancun. On our return leg we hit Mexico City airport at rush hour when the queues were very long - about a 30 minute wait, but Interjet recovered ...

    Monarch Airlines Economy (short haul)

    on: B757-200

    4.6

    Monarch's 757s are very old and have overhead TV screens that are difficult to see. Six hours on this plane, with its very cramped seating, is more than enough, but bearable if you're not too tall. If you are, opt for a premium seat which do offer lots of space. The crew on the flight to the ...

The aircraft was brand new and really comfortable no matter where you sat. Food included fresh soup - with refills - salmon and dill rolls and other small delights. Economy ...

    Heathrow to Barcelona and back. Despite an astonishing £790 return price tag FOR ECONOMY!!!, not so much as a cup of coffee was free on the way out and I was crammed into a middle seat. On the way back, I wisely checked in online and chose an exit window seat - at least that was free. At ...

    7.9

    BA247 LHR-GRU 2.9.09 I had the aisle seat nearest the toilets at the rear of the upstairs cabin. I'd have preferred a window seat, but the cabin was full. I managed a good six hours sleep on the 11-hour flight and the seat was very comfortable if, like me, you're not too tall or large. Dining ...
