Access to the other airlines in Africa. 

The ExpressJet pleased with everything from the price they ask for tickets to the quality of service. The only downside for me was quite narrow seat, I could hardly fit in your entire flight and felt uncomfortable. I'm not saying that the company is bad - it is great, but so overweight people like me to choose the best aircraft equipped with large armchairs.

The airline has always supported high-end bar, however, that in recent years it has become the most noticeable. On all flights, regardless of the direction, there is a complete interior loading, monitors mounted in the seats is even in the third grade, that does not leave indifferent even the most skeptical of people.

While committing a flight to Moscow, we were in the cabin almost alone. This delight of the flight has never experienced. The food was as if we should have a right for all passengers who do not fly! We were very pleased and be sure to go on the next year, in the same trip.

I flew this airline immediately in two directions, complaints I have, but I want to note that the flight from Barcelona was much better quality than from Moscow. I do not know what it is connected, but the second time service was really much better.

Passengers absolute punctuality people. Because of them, the flight was delayed for more than 30 minutes. The result was almost late for the next flight. In general, employees behave harmoniously and intelligently. I think that this situation will not happen again, especially flight attendants umnichki!

I flew with a friend in business class. This is certainly not the most successful company, however, in a positive way growth has not gone unnoticed by me. Well done. I hope you will improve performance in the future.

I liked that the flight was scheduled for the morning 9 and sent without delay, and I managed to sleep in the airport slowly to get there. In Egypt it was within 2 hours that insanely pleased, because in a way I did not have time to get tired, and immediately ran to the beach. Good luck to you!

14.04. 2014 year flew on the Embraer ERJ-145 in the direction of Chicago-Memphis. A small plane, just three rows of seats, is not the newest. Leather seats, quite comfortable and wide. Arrival, departure - on schedule. On board the plane there was one stewardess who offered passengers coffee, juice, water (they were included in the price of the air ticket). There were no more offers on nutrition. Although for an hour and a half it is not necessary. It is allowed to take luggage cabin luggage. On the baggage before boarding a special tag is attached, leaving it at the entrance to the plane and then loaded into the luggage compartment (a small briefcase or ladies' bag can be put on the luggage rack in the plane itself). Passengers were not released until the baggage was unloaded.
