Everything was conform with the schedule. No delays, no useless dead times, and nice personnel. I flight with 2 different plane types. A clasic/standard one and a newer model. Flight was at the same good quality with both.

Bring your own food, hands down the worst in flight food I've ever had, rather have mre's or microwavable noodles than what they serve you. Expect the worst and you will be ok, it's the grey hound bus of flights.

Mediocre service on a half broken plane that smelled like exhaust fumes. Delays upon delays. Incredibly unreliable. Plus the food was horrible.

This company was hired to fly my husband's military unit back from a deployment. Apparently when they arrived to pick up the unit they had mechanics there, working on a repair before take off. When they landed at their layover destination, the mechanics-who had gone with them-found that the issue had not been successfully fixed and hours later determined it...

Reasonable ticket price, punctual flights, specious airplanes with comfortable seats and decent legroom. Flight attendants are polite yet could be friendlier. The company is kind enough to offer us light snacks both ways morning and night despite booking economy class tickets. N.B your likes are highly appreciated.

We flew from Toronto to Las Vegas on a private charter flight with Atlas Air who I had never heard of before our flight. The plane was a 747 and appeared to be fairly old. That being said everything worked as it should and was in good repair. There were 12 staff on board in addition to the cockpit crew,...

Flying from El Paso to Kuwait on a piece of airline junk! They had problems with the engines and the air conditioning on this plane. If the plane wasn't in the air, the a/c didn't work. There was no electric outlets to charge computers or to plug in CPAP machines. The food was absolutely horrid and wasn't fit for inmates...

We flew to Izmir with my family of 5. Inexpensive airline. Safe. Clean. More legroom than Pegasus airlines. It is so inexpensive to fly domestic in turkey ( especially compared to,flying domestic in the United States). Not as nice as Turkish airlines.
