Hello. Help please find a brother. He worked (maybe working) in your company. Trofimov Alexey A. 1993. The last time I got in touch was 22 July.

So after all chipped or FALCON?

good company

Before leaving the plane had technical faults. The heat was such that even adults become ill, not to mention the children. As a result, one child collapsed and instead of finally include air conditioning or at least open the door they were in the same stuffiness waited for the ambulance. Only after the doctor started shouting to the entire interior of a passenger contents stewardess finally turned on the air conditioning. I do not understand, but she could not guess without shouting?

Planes of the company aimed at the very fast delivery of passengers, even if in flight is delayed along the way, everything falls into place. The only difficulty waiting for passengers at the airport, which easily could have lost their luggage or sent to another city. Very fortunately I not experienced, but she saw repeatedly how much time you need to spend forces to organize a search!

Obbegat lot of airlines, and the Director-General of the agreed transport my son to Moscow to carry out the operation. Only thanks to him and the doctors the child not only survived, but also goes on the amendment, for which he thank you very much!

A good airline, not yet had time to guide snickering at state-owned grub. And the plane they flew on schedule and in a way nothing had happened, that I am personally very surprising given that all the planes were old and probably since the days of the Soviet Union.

The aircraft is absolutely new and clean, and despite the fact that in the majority of peers equipment is falling apart literally in the sky. Each place enclosed wet wipes, which is quite convenient, not to take the same food with dirty hands. About nutrition should be discussed separately, it is very, very high quality, the last time I ate such food as a child my grandmother. In general, the flight remains insanely happy. Especially considering that the flight was on schedule, and any possible changes immediately notify handsfree. Well done even nothing to complain about!

Recently flew to Turkey and want to say that it was the most successful flight of my life. Flight of the wonderful weather conditions allow the window to watch passing clouds. How nice, and given the highly courteous attitude, a person, I want to literally extend the trip! You guys are fine fellows, establish a performance manage not every airline - I recommend!

A great airline, fully responding to its name. Departed without delay and decided to get a ticket back from the same company, when the flight was bad for a woman, but the stewardess not only quickly brought her to life, but also maintained morally until the end of the journey. It would be more than such employees. You feel much more confident, knowing that if something suddenly happens, you will be provided with all the required assistance. The flight in both directions was as smooth as possible, personally I had the impression that we were just floating in the air, and this is just a nightmarish weather situation. I express great gratitude to all the working staff of the Sokol airline and thanks for your excellent work.
