Pros: Comfortable plane, excellent feedback from pilots regarding route, changes in altitude etc We had to drop a couple of 1000m to avoid bad turbulence. We were kept in the loop reg what was going on
Cons: Budget travel - so no food, entertainment or the like
Pros: Comfortable seats and did not have to pay extra for a carryon luggage
Cons: The boarding process was quite chaotic and slow. There was no oversight of what people were putting in the overhead compartment so many were putting both their carryon suitcase and under seat bags up there leaving no room for our suitcases by the time we boarded. The flight attendants were eventually helpful in finding space by making people remove smaller items, but it was time consuming and avoided on most airlines we typically fly by enforcing bag rules as passengers are boarding.
Pros: The planes seem fresh and new. The staff were efficient and professional. Although a budget airline, we thought they offered value for money.
Cons: Can't think of anything. Although expectations weren't high, they surpassed them.
Pros: Caring and courteous crew.
Cons: Crampped more than 90mins late -- made me miss the last train and cost me a large taxi fare to get home! Terribly disappointing experience. The morning flight to East London was also over an hour late because (according to the Captain) the aircraft was late in coming out of its weekly service! Hope never having to resort to Kulula ever again!
Pros: The plane needed to changed and very luckily for me this plane had a business class section and my seat was right in front.
Cons: Standing in line to board they take so long to announce a delay. And it's not called flight delay, it's called a boarding delay. Doesn't make it any better.
