I do not know how come, but more than one flight for which I get a ticket, did not make a timely departure. Is it hard to establish a system to alert passengers. Even if they put a man on the phone, whose main task would be a roll call of clients and the message of the new departure time. Such huge queues at the airport could have been avoided.

Food, of course, during the flight is not offered, but the drinks were constantly around the cabin and during the trip I did not feel. We strongly recommend to make flights of the airline.

It is evident that the staff are really ready and did not want to just get rid of the obsessions of passengers. The flight broke a bio-toilet, so that by the end of the trip it formed a real place, but it's worth noting that the repairs made quickly enough. For that to the company added one more bold plus. I am happy, I hope in the future, the changes will benefit the company.

There flew without delay. In flight, constantly offering drinks, so do not even working air conditioner, could not spoil the positive impression of flight. The food is delicious, and besides, very carefully packaged. Flight attendants are very educated. I liked just about anything!

December 27 2014 years flew flight of the airline. On the flight it took - two and a half hours. Plane few shabby, but the whole interior looks very decent, pleasant flight attendants, speak good English. You can choose to take the cutlets of chicken with rice or fish. I personally took the fish, a normal taste. The choice of a huge number of drinks: soda, juice, beer, water, coffee, tea. This year flew the same flight, but there was a delay of six hours as a result of what we paid 200 yuan as compensation. In general, from the flight left a good impression.
