Airlines of the World and Russian ...

You can not pay for a ticket to Brazil on the map, because it only accepts local banks. We had to run around town in search of an ATM to withdraw cash and pay for a ticket.

It is very convenient that the monitors are built right into the chair, and there is no need at all times to lift up his head up, as in the showrooms where they hang from the ceiling. The flight was calm. All the flight was shaking only twice.

I want to praise the man who founded the company and noted that the level you have achieved most of our - Russian companies will be a very long time to grow!

Departures occurred at the same time that was specified in the ticket. Registration and passport control passed surprisingly quickly. I decided to buy tickets back and this company! Excellent service and maintenance! Though the food and standard, but alertness of staff, with which they serve all requests, brightens lack of diversity. In the end, not the starving were gathered together.

In late April, the company flew from Sao Paulo to Iguazu. Comfortable aircraft, staff polite, prompt receipt of baggage. Extremely pleased ticket price - only 5 thousand. Rubles per person (luggage allowed 23 kg). Since this is a budget airline, served on board free only mineral water. Surprised and seat pitch. In this regard, we do not rest even low cost airlines. I would recommend.
