Since Bristish Airways, more correctly, GB Airways sold out the easyJet I wondered what the service would be like.
I recently have had the experience and wonder if anyone on this forum has or knows of anyone who has tried easyJet.
My flights were not cheap, around ?220 return, but the experience certainly was inspite of paying for 'Speedy Boarding' as an extra.
On the outward journey my youngest son, aged just 9, was trampled underfoot in the rush from the bus to the steps of the aircraft. There is no allocated seating it is a free for all.
The flight was quite eventless until we got to short finals, within a mile to touchdown, when the cabin crew had to ask passengers to remain seated! The same announcement was made when we were still on the runway with reverse thrust being applied, where the hell were they going for god's sake!
The return journey was distressing for the fact that a similar rush to get seats started long before the flight was called. Threats of physical violence were made to us 'Speedy Boarders' who were seen merely as queue jumpers. The call was made and the stampede began. We were pushed aside by a group of at least ten people accompanying one buggy.
Travel now brings out the worse in everyone. Flying used to be a pleasure, not anymore, what with security being extra tight but inconsistent.
I have great fears for tourism in Tenerife if low cost means low life even more so than it does now.
