Mistral is a subsidiary of Poste Italiane - absolutely nothing wrong with the flight and service on board, but the ground staff at Pantelleria airport leave a lot to be desired. We were supposed to leave at 09:40, so arrived at the airport at 08:00, very few people around, deposited our car rental, and checked in no problem. Weather grey...

The posta aircraft was small but nicely equipped, with comfortable seats, kind crew, complimentary sweets at landing.

I was unfortunate to be subcontracted onto this so called airline from TUI. Never again will I travel with them. This is the oldest and most unairworthy aicraft I ever been on. The crew were rude and trying to scam everyone on board with the "Ive no change" trick when buying drinks. I had to ask several times for my...

Our flight was scheduled for 9:00 in the morning. After several delays, absolutely no reliable info, and more than 10 hours waiting, we found out that we will fly to Split (Croatia) instead Mostar (BiH). WTF!? We had organized bus ride from Split to Mostar, and arrived there in the middle of the night. All in all, one extremely unpleasant...

This is the first and last time I would fly with this airline. Thomson (TUI) used them instead of their own plane and will be using them again next year from Newcastle. Both the outward journey and the inward journey were delayed and it looked like this had happened all season. The service was inferior, they even managed to run...

A good flight between Florence and Marseille (saves alot of hassle in a very long train journey or even having to leave Tuscany, Italy and return to UK and then fly down to Marseille) - seats comfortable.

After reading reviews about this airline I was worried,but all was good. Aircraft was clean and tidy,staff were friendly and well dressed. Only drinks were sold on board and had to be paid for in euros. Staff were Italian as airline based there,and very friendly.

Excellent crew but bad company. The flight took 5 hours late and, moreover, made a unexpected stop in Crete and then departed to the final destination. In flight we were offered only biscuits and soft drinks and neither at the time of departure nor in flight or at the time of arrival there was provided support for complaints and refunds.
