They change the time and you loose your tickets!
Oct 2018 • Friends
Early in October I was due to attend a balloon flight which was booked for the afternoon. On the day I received an email with a change of time for the flight which I was unable to attend so I replied to the email stating that I would need to re-book another time. As this was a Sunday the company claimed that they did not receive emails and the whole flight had to be cancelled because I didn't show up and therefore my tickets were now voided. I am somewhat aghast that an organisation sends emails to change details but does not monitor them in this day and age when most of society has moved to the ability to access emails remotely - "Aerosaurus" more like "Dinosaurus". It was the company that changed the flight time not me and to cancel my tickets as a result of a change they made is a disgrace particularly as they were notified within minutes in writing of the change in time via email.

I am sympathetic to the changes in flights for balooning etc because of weather but this cannot be at the sole discretion of the company. In short, I wouldn't bother booking with them as they can change things how they want to and will just take your money and provide no benefit.

Before writing this review I wrote to the company if they would reconsider to which they are yet to respond. Yet again ignoring correspondence. I suggest paying a little more and going with a more professional outfit.

Thank you for your review. We are sorry that you missed your flight due to the meeting time being brought forward by 15 minutes. Ballooning is a very weather dependent activity and we have to make sure we can take off and carry out a safe flight during the good conditions, these changes are made at the Pilots discretion based on his insights on the local weather conditions. From his experience, he felt that 15 minutes was not a big change and actually most people arrive around 15 minutes early anyway to make sure they are on time and don't miss their flight. You were sent an email and a text message telling you to call the weather line to listen to the update about your flight and that there was a slight change to the meeting time. On the weatherline, there was an emergency phone number provided for anyone who had a problem to call and speak to the Pilot/Crew about it. Unfortunately, you did not call the emergency number to tell the Pilot/Crew that you wouldn't be coming to the flight, instead you sent an email which is not monitored on a Sunday. The Pilot and Crew tried to phone you several times while they were waiting for you to arrive but you did not answer and as a result of waiting for you and the minimum landing weight in the basket being compromised, the flight had to be cancelled and all other passengers sent away disappointed. We still have to pay the Pilot and Crew, vehicle and balloon costs which is why your vouchers are voided.

amazing evening
Jul 2018 • Solo
Finally got the go ahead for last Wednesday evening (25th) after several cancellations, and it was so worth the wait. We met up at Exeter but they took us to Tiverton as the wind direction could have taken us out to sea. Arthur, our pilot, and the ground crew were very professional, friendly and gave us clear instructions. At the launch site we all had the chance to help out if we wanted. Getting into the basket was the hardest bit - forget about hanging on to your dignity! All nerves vanished the moment we left the ground, swept away by the sheer wonder of it all. The weather was amazing, light winds, good visibility and the setting sun highlighting the contours of the ground. Apart from brief bursts of the burners it was so peaceful and relaxing, we could see for miles in all directions and the glass of fizz made it feel even more special. All too soon we had to start our descent, but we landed so gently there was only the slightest bump. Again we all had the chance to help pack everything away and were then taken back to Exeter and given our flight certificates. A big thank you to everyone at Aerosaurus for making it possible for us all to enjoy such an amazing experience. I would do it again in a heartbeat.
