Flew up to Sydney in the morning, as I inevitably get delayed, as was the case this time! Delayed in Moruya due to congestion in Sydney. Cafe at the Moruya Airport makes great coffee, which made the delay bearable. Flight staff very apologetic and friendly.

Flew down to Sydney and back in one day ... same snack both ways - a small packet of chips. The opposition, Qantas, has a proper snack pack with three items and they vary the contents.

Yet again I had the pleasure of travelling to an old stomping ground. Very professional but down to earth flight crew and cabin crew.. very kind and competent. On time, as a former pilot I choose 2 takeoffs and landings. It's the kid in me? Taxiing through puddles and bumpy squeaky cabin compartments on the Saab's reminded me of my...

I flew return to Carnarvon from Perth for work. The flights left on time and were very smooth. There was just one flight attendant but she was efficient, polite and service was good. Seats were comfortable and i would definitely fly with this airline again.

Tiny plane and the seats are a little on the smaller side. The service however was great, the hostesses were lovely, the snack was really nice and well presented. Just remember it is a small regional airline, so if you don't like small planes then perhaps driving is a better option. Overall it wasn't so bad, and the service makes...

Flew with REX this morning and just found it looking a bit tired - strips around the windows were chipped and damaged. Flight was on time and service was good though.

When arriving at the airport at 5:30 for a 6:30 takeoff, the flight was delayed as announced when booking in. The new arrival time at Sydney was 9:15. We were supposed to be at the international terminal for a 9:50 takeoff on a connecting flight. The fog rolled into Dubbo so the flight took off at 6:50 for an arrival...

We flew out to Monkey Mia and back to Perth and had good flights with friendly and polite staff. Was impressed to see both choices of snacks on board were gluten free and good quality. Although our flight left a bit late we were kept informed and it was only half an hours delay.
