Small Planet Airlines

Hi all. We've booked with Monarch/Cosmos and are apparently being flown from Gatwick to Skiathos by Small Planet. Getting a lot of mixed messages regarding this outfit, so has anyone flown with them this year?

Thanks

Hey robthemod:-) Hopefully, someone will respond to you here in the Skopelos Forum.. I have no clue about the charter/low-cost/package deals into Skiathos from the UK.. or from anywhere else in Europe for that matter coming from the States:-) You may want to re-post in the Skiathos Forum where am sure you'll get lots of advise/responses;-) Best.. and EnJOY!

small planet is hit and miss sorry to say

you will be on time or often as not frequently delayed - things ARE better this year somewhat as they have got their act together with their fleet and backup

not a bad airline once you are on board and flying and some of their planes are new and crews are pleasant

as i said it is hit n miss - they did have a terrible reputation for timekeeping and rescheduling at the last minute - hope yours is OK

Thanks Rog747 That's seems to be what everyone is saying. Seems that flights to other destinations are worst hit and especially from Manchester.

We flew to Kos and back with Small Planet from Gatwick Both flights were delayed by the late arrival of the early flight in from The Gambia There is no online check in available so if you want extra legroom seats you pay at the check in desk and the price is inconsistent £20 a seat going out and €37 coming back I queried this and was told that we got a discount! It's only a discount if you publish a price and they don't. Please bear this in mind. Once on board the flight and crew were very good with familiar on board food and drink if you are used to Ryanair and Easy Jet If you book a charter deal then you may end up on Small Planet ... It's ok but they need to sort out the delay and inconsistent pricing
