The plane was very old but the worst was the air conditioning did not work. So while travelling business, I was sweating it out, literally. Never in my life have I experienced this- the only good thing was the friendly and courteous staff.

What can I say? The plane left on time the attendants were nice. We landed in one piece. The meal from Iraq was inedible for the most part, but the meal from Cairo was ok.

Since the airline is young, planes are new and because of the owner's strict policy, not only prices are not competitive but also you have to buy the tickets more expensive than what you hope. And the last not the least, As for the crew, they are all new in the business and you can not expect that much of...

The minute you step onto the plane you regret it. The plane is old as old can be, the food is worse and there is no entertainment on board. When it comes down to it the plane takes you from A to B and nothing in between is fun. So eat before you board and bring your Ipad cause you...
