1. Re: excel airways.

we flew to hurghada last year with excel and found it to be just your normal charter flight. the flights were both on time and the legroom was typical of all charter flights(none existent). i think most times when you see bad reviews it is normally because of a delay which happens sometimes but they seemed no better or worse than anyone else

We flew XL last September, short delay both ends but nothing bad, crew not happy (they hate it cause its the furthest they fly without getting a lay over at the destination) both aircraft appeared to be quite old with no onboard entertainment, so take your mp3 just in case thats typical, came back in a 747 on which my seat wouldn't stay upright, it inclined just leaning on it, having said all that it was cheap, got us there and back safely and it is only 5 hours each way. If you're prepared for the worst you may just be surprised.

Agree with cat99, went with excel in february.

I read the same reports as you and find it pathetic that people fly from Manchester to Majorca and complain!

Planes IMO are to get from A to B - if you want first class facilities, pay for it!!

Delays are a different thing, and as far as I'm aware, out of the control of the airline most of the time. So maybe a lot of complaints re: delays with Excel are misdirected?

Anyway, Excel were fine. Just your average low-cost airline

Enjoy your hols
