Official Website

It took several attempts before we were able to access the official site of Air Georgian. We got to admit that the interface is not modernized, but it’s not that complicated to navigate because it’s simple and user-friendly. Unlike other airlines’ official sites, Air Georgian doesn’t directly show the option to search and book for flights on their main page. Booking of scheduled flights is done through the Air Canada website. For reference, customers refer to the link below:

BMI Regional Reviews
BMI actually stands for British Midland Regional, which traces its roots back to 1987 as “
Business Air” commencing operations in August of the same year. However, in the long run, it was purchased by British Midland that lead to its rebranding in 2001 as “BMI Regional.”

Please do not confuse Business Air of Thailand, which is now known as “Intira Airlines,” with Business Air of the United Kingdom, which is now known as “BMI Regional.” They are not related at all.

The British regional airline’s operating bases are in Aberdeen, Bristol, East Midlands, Karlstad, Munich, and Newcastle. The airline serving scheduled passenger services across United Kingdom and Europe has 18 Embraer aircraft on its fleet.

Sharp Airlines Reviews

Sharp Airlines Reviews-Malcolm Sharp
Malcolm Sharp

In 1990, an air facility was established, but only with a single Piper PA-31-350 Chieftain, a twin-engined aircraft known to be a vulnerable yet popular choice of aircraft back then. The airline had slowly grown in time, and had acquired the aircraft of Fairchild Metro to replace the Chieftains. It was then that the airline added a new network to Essendon Airport. In time, Sharp Airlines added several more route networks to Port Augusta, Portland, and even to the largest island in the Furneaux Group, Flinders Island.

Now, Sharp Airlines has 10 aircraft of Cessna, Piper, and Fairchild which can accommodate 3-19 passengers. Their parent company is Sharp Aviation Pty. Ltd and they are still being led by the founder and managing director, Malcolm Sharp.

Not-so-sharp Website

Sharp Airlines Reviews-pageThough, their official website doesn’t look updated or well-maintained; given it’s not modernized, the web page still functions normally wherein customers can search and book for their preferred flight deals with Sharp Airlines. The page shows a flashing image of their holiday packages and services. They also show several tabs of information regarding the airline’s policies and news. However, Sharp Airlines doesn’t have a mobile version of their PC services.

Sharp Airlines Reviews of Passengers

We tried reading and checking through several Sharp Airlines reviews online. To be honest, there weren’t much, but acknowledgement and appreciation are shown by their customers with their experience with Sharp Airlines.

SATA Air Açores Reviews

A group of Portuguese investors and Bensaúde & Co. Lda. established “Sociedade Açoreana de Estudos Aéreos” in 194, which in English, means “Azorean Aviation Studies Company.” The purpose of the creation of the inter-island airline was to link the Azorean archipelago and continental Portugal, and to obtain the governmental concession. The Portuguese government granted temporary concession to the airline, which operated mail, cargo, and air passenger services between São Miguel, Terceira, and Santa Maria airports. They initially started with two de Havilland DH.104 Dove aircraft.

Moving forward, SATA Air Açores has a current fleet size of 6 Bombardier Dash 8 aircraft and serves 11 routes to Azores, Madeira, and Spain. The airline is currently headquartered at João Paulo II Airport and they are currently being led by Paulo Menezes.

The Livery

liveryIt is basically a geometric composite of nine-shapes, representing the nine islands of the archipelago, joined to form the ubiquitous Açor identified in legend. When exploded, each shape can be placed alone in geographical context to form a modernist map of the Azores. This new logo was introduced from a year-long-effort design by Ivity-Corp to express new fleet revitalization, referred to as Blue Island Açor.

Flying SATA Air Açores

SATA Air Açores Reviews-inflightThere’s no information shown as to how services are done on board. But, because the airline uses two model aircraft of Bombardier with 37- and 80-passenger capacity, it’s quite expected that they only have one class of service inflight. But, SATA Air Açores makes sure travellers get the best services they could ever have.

For children (under the age 2), flying with SATA Air Açores is being paid for only 10% of the fare. Milk bottles and food containers can be heated during flight and coloring books are distributed on board. A special accompaniment service is available for children between 3 months and 4 years who travel alone. Though, please be reminded that this service should be requested when the booking is made and is subject to a fee.

Official Website and Mobile App

SATA Air Açores Reviews-pageOne of the good things about the official site of SATA Air Açores is their theme color. The choice of different shades of blue gives a calm and clean effect to its customers. However, the font size of the text content is too small to be readable at times. But, basically, travellers can search and book for flights, car rentals services or hotel reservations. Unlike other airlines, SATA Air Açores has an option to provide their activities (things to do in Portugal) services located right next to booking flights option. Additionally, the website lets customers manage their bookings online.
SATA Air Açores Reviews-mobile app

If travellers are more of a mobile-user, no worries, because SATA Air Açores has a mobile app available for Android and iOS users. The travel app has almost similar features and services with the PC version. Mobile check-in then is also an option and it’s easy to access in 5 simple steps. This option is available 48 hours before your flight departure.

Overview

We also checked on some SATA Air Açores reviews and based on 56 feedback shown online, they got a total rating of 5/10. However, for some reason, the most recent posted comments are showing complaints over SATA Air Açores’ services on board. But, to be honest, the concern of these passengers was the minimal flight entertainment or close-to-none. On a positive note, the Portuguese airline was being complimented for their crew’s attentiveness.

Arik Air Reviews

Arik Air Reviews-Michael Arumemi-Ikhide
Michael Arumemi-Ikhide CEO

Arik Air was established when it took over the air facility of Lagos in 2006. The airline started with 2 Bombardier CRJ-900 to domestic routes. On the same year, Arik Air was granted an authorization by the Federal Ministry of Aviation to extend their flight networks to Trinidad and Tobago, Amsterdam, London, and Madrid. It was in 2008, when the airline was granted permission to fly to the United States (by US Department of Transportation).

Now, Arik Air is headquartered at Arik Air Aviation Center on the grounds of Murtala Muhammed International Airport in Ikeja, Lagos State. They are being led by their Chairman, Sir JIA Arumemi-Ikhide, and carry the company slogan “Wings of Nigeria.” Arik Air now has a total of 32 aircraft serving 26 extended domestic networks and some international destinations.

Official Website and Mobile App

The official site looks formal and decent and the purple and navy blue theme colors make it more professional. The web page provides services including the option to search or book flights and hotel accommodations. Passengers can also check-in online or manage their booking online. Apart from that, Arik Frequent Flyer program information can also be accessible on the main page. In a nutshell, Arik Air lets travellers learn more about the airline’ service, policies, and news.

Unlike other regional airlines, Arik Air has been more prominent on their mobile services. The Nigerian airline has a mobile app that can be accessed by Apple, Android, Blackberry, and Windows Phone users. The travel app lets customers search, book, and manage their flights. Another quick method of paying their payments is by using the Interswitch Verve “Remember Card” feature. To make sure the purchase had been made, customers can also view their flight purchase history on their mobile phones.
mobile appHere’s the “Scan the QR code page” for the mobile application of Arik Air.

Arik Air Reviews over Service & Experience

inflightChecking through online feedback regarding the Nigerian airlines of over 39 Arik Air reviews, the air carrier has been garnering not-good scores from its passengers. An overall rating of 3/10 was given. What’s worse, is the most recent posts are all negative and complaints towards Arik Air’s services. Majority of the comments state that they had the worst experience with Arik Air.

One reviewer on the 3rd of July 2016 said:
“By far one of the worst experiences I have had flying out of the country. After a 12 hours layover in New York, when it came time to board, they were late checking their passengers in and then when we got to gate we sat there for another 4 hrs before they told us to line up for boarding.

We waited another hour and they proceed to tell us that the flight was going to be delayed for an hour, 45 mins later we were told they were having technical issues that could last for hours. If you ever going to west Africa, Arik Air is not the airline.”

Conclusion

Arik Air is not one of the popular airlines nowadays. Maybe, because it is majorly routed to Nigerian destinations. However, it’s quite sad that the airline is not good at maintaining a good standing even on domestic flights. This can be a big problem if they would compete internationally. They should fix some of their loose ends first, then maybe they could be part of the growing airline industry.

EasyFly Reviews

EasyFly Reviews-Alfonso Ávila
Alfonso Ávila

One of the prominent cities in the world is Bogotá. The capital of Colombia, known for its colonial-era landmarks, has touched the tourists’ love for Spanish culture and destinations. If you recall, we already wrote a review about Avianca. Today, we’ll be talking about a newly established low-cost airline named EasyFly. Join me as we discover if it is easy to fly with EasyFly.

EasyFly was actually founded by Alfonso Ávila who was also the founder of Aero República or what is more known now as “Copa Airlines,” founded in 1992. The Colombian low-cost airline started with one British Aerospace Jetstream 41 aircraft. Now, it has grown to 17 aircraft and 25 more ATR are expected and ordered by EasyFly to expand its fleet. EasyFly uses the slogan “Hace fácil volar,” which means “It makes it easy to fly.” It operates 18 destinations and is adding 2 more routes in the future with Venezuela and Aruba.

Official Website and Mobile App

Accessing the official site of EasyFly is easy. Though, we had to inform users to be advised that the web page is in Spanish by default. To be honest, we can’t find an option to change the version of the site to English. So, for the sake of this review we translated the site via Google Translate. Basically, EasyFly lets customers book their reservations online but only for flight options with no car rental or hotel accommodation services.
EasyFly Reviews-page
The web page shows a lot more about the services, deals, and policies of the airline. It also promotes the tourism of Bogotá or other places of Colombia by mentioning their top destinations. Customers having difficulties on using the travel site or understanding the services can actually call their customer support. But, please be informed that their call center hours operates from Monday to Friday from 5:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m., and on Saturday, Sunday, and holidays from 6:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m.

These services are also available on their travel app, though are only available in the Google Play Store for Android users.

EasyFly Reviews and Services

EasyFly had an overall score of 9/10 on Skytrax. It is based from 2 EasyFly reviews, wherein both comments are positive and dated this year. The first review mentioned that the EasyFly ground staff were helpful and professional. EasyFly Reviews-happy passengerHe even complimented on the smooth and punctual flight he had with EasyFly. The passenger actually had a short-haul flight but left no complaints about his overall experience with EasyFly. He even ended his review by saying “Would consider it if needed.”

The most recent review was posted on the 27th of March 2016. Mr. Flores had given his best opinion about EasyFly. Similar with the first review, he mentioned that the staff are nice. His flight went quietly, was comfortable, and clean.

Kulula Reviews

The first “no-frills” or low-cost airline in South Africa and also the second placer from the bottom list of the “
World’s Top 100 Airlines” by Skytrax: in this review, we’ll look more on Kulula.

Kulula Reviews-leadership Erik VenterKulula traces its roots back to 2001 and started operations in the same year. The airline provides major domestic flights to the citizens of South Africa. Comair is the parent company of Kulula, which also operates flights as a franchisee of British Airways. Erik Rudolp Venter has been their CEO since 2011. Erik also serves as their Finance Director since 2013. However, during his leadership, recently Kulula has hit a currency turbulence.

The South African budget airline is headquartered at Bonaero Park, Kempton Park, Ekurhuleni, Gauteng with two hubs: OR Tambo and Lanseria International Airport. Now, Kulula has a total fleet size of 10 Boeing aircraft catering flights to 7 destinations internationally.

Flying with Kulula

Kulula Reviews-inflightKulula offers two kinds of service: Economy and Business class. All seats in both classes can be reclined for a flexible position and comfort. Incoming passengers can select their seat on the website, however extra charges are required. Meals and snacks are sold on board in which their menu includes a meat roll sub, veggie roll sub, Pringles, Oreos, chocolates, muffins, and more tasty snacks.

To keep passengers entertained, flight attendants hand out Khuluma magazines which feature different topics like lifestyle, gadgets, shopping trends, photography, and business.

PC and Mobile Version

Kulula Reviews-pageThe official website is pretty standard for an airline interface. To be honest, initially, I mistook Kulula for an online travel agency. Kulula’s page is pretty much the basic airline service: everything from booking flights to arranging hotel and car reservations. Packages for holiday destinations with discounted prices are included under the category of packages. The website allows passengers to manage their flights by checking in and adding extra services during flights.

To access the mobile version of their website, use “kulula.mobi.” However, a travel app is not yet available from the App Store and Google Play Store.

Kulula Reviews of Passengers

Kulula is not yet given a star rating by SkyTrax. Despite the “almost lowest” ranking, Kulula received positive reviews from their previous passengers. Some of the reviews mentioned that the seats were a little cramped; however, they didn’t complain, rather they came to Kulula’s defense saying that the company is a budget airline, therefore the seats were justified.

Customers complimented the cleanliness of each airliner and the friendliness of the attendants. One passenger in particular was happy when the ground attendants allowed him to board his flight despite arriving at the airport 20 minutes before his flight. Kulula doesn’t seem so bad.

Conclusion

Judging through several Kulula reviews, despite being the 99th place airline in the world, Kulula provides quality service and manages to gain loyal customers. It will take many years before they achieve major improvements but with better management, Kulula is still in the race.

Widerøe Reviews

Widerøe Reviews-destinationsWiderøe actually started from the foundation of two small airlines (Lotsberg & Skappel and Widerøe & Bjørneby) back in 1932 in which this cooperation established air shows in eastern Norway. These shows were used to introduce and advertise their company. In 1933, the founder,
Viggo Widerøe, had bought 5 used de Havillands from the Air Force and started aviation schools both in Oslo and Bergen. And, officially in 1934, Widerøe’s Flyveselskap A/S was founded.

Now, the airline more known as “Widerøe,” is the largest regional airline operating in the Nordic countries with a fleet size of 41 Bombardier Dash aircraft. International services are provided to and from five Norwegian airports to seven foreign airports in Sweden, Denmark, and the United Kingdom.

Flying with Widerøe

Widerøe Reviews-inflightThe inflight service of Widerøe varies with destination and time of the day. They offer breakfast on domestic flights lasting longer than 45 minutes, complimentary coffee and tea all day, and snacks, chocolate, and drinks are available for sale.

Customers travelling to Sweden and Denmark via flexible tickets are offered a breakfast with coffee, tea, and cold drinks, and sandwiches with a smoothie are free of charge. Economy ticket passengers are offered breakfast-baguettes with coffee, tea, and water. Though, cold drinks and other snacks are available for sale.

Official Website and Mobile App

Widerøe Reviews-pageLooking through the official site, it pretty much shows that the airline doesn’t pay too much attention to their web page. It is just a plain white and green page, but at least it has an option to search and book flights online. Customers can also manage (cancel or change) their bookings online. Apart from flight booking, Widerøe’s site also has hotel reservation and car rental services. They also show the current news in the travel industry.

Widerøe Reviews-mobile appSocial media account links are shown at the bottom right of the page; this might provide more information about Widerøe.

On a positive note, Widerøe has a travel app for customers who are more fond of using smartphones over computers to book or check their flights. Travellers can also manage and check their flight schedule, find travel information, and read the latest news. The Widerøe mobile app is available in the App Store and Google Play Store.

Widerøe Reviews of Travellers

Reading several Widerøe reviews online is not as disappointing as their official site looks like or how their services sound like. Passengers had been complimenting a lot about their Widerøe overall experience being far better than a regional airline’s. On Skytrax, according to 8 Widerøe reviews, the airline scored an overall rating of 8/10. Even first time flyers were impressed with how things go with Widerøe.

Overview

Well, to be honest, when we started writing this review about Widerøe we were actually disappointed. Because, they seem to be not interested in making their site or services look and sound professional or exclusive. They lack the convincing power for you to get hooked on travelling with them. It requires a lot of patience and effort to see how great the airline is.

SATENA Reviews

SATENA traces its roots back to 1962 under the Decree 940 order of President
Alberto Lleras Camargo “to form an aerial transport service for the benefit of the underdeveloped regions of the country, with the object of promoting the welfare of educational campaigns, agricultural and pastoral development and the economic and social progress of such territories.” Through this, the airline was entrusted with the control of the Colombian Air Force and up until now serves as their parent company.

SATENA actually stands for “Servicio Aéreo a Territorios Nacionales.” The Colombian government-owned airline which started with one C-54, two C-47, and two Beaver L-20 aircraft now has a growing fleet size of 21 aircraft (Let, ATR, Embraer and Harbin) and serves 30 domestic routes, operating international routes to Mexico, Jamaica and Cuba.SATENA Reviews-inflight

InFlight with SATENA

SATENA Reviews-Planet IFESince SATENA doesn’t use major aircraft models like Boeing and Airbus, the seat configuration inflight are all 2-2 arrangement which gives more space for passengers to sit back and relax. Another good thing about SATENA is they are a member of Planet IFE, who are actually experts on in-flight communication strategies. Another known member of Planet IFE is Avianca.

Official Website and Mobile App

SATENA Reviews-pageThe logo of SATENA is actually inspired by the colors of the Colombian flag while the bird is actually their national bird: Andean Condor. Moving forward, we love how the official site looks like.

However, we were quite disappointed that the option to change the language of the site to English is malfunctioning. Once clicked, it will redirect users to the About Us page which shows the Mission Vision of the airline.mobile app The web page is actually in Spanish by default and Google’s option to translate it to English is not working too. Too bad.

SATENA has a mobile app, wherein customers can stay connected wherever they are. The travel app is available to download from the App Store and Google Play Store. Though, SATENA reviews about the travel app are very poor since the last update of the application was in 2014. They should make developments for this, since the mobile application’s aim is to ease travel services via smartphones.

SATENA Reviews of Passengers

For some reason, there is only one SATENA customer review posted on Skytrax and it’s dated back to December 2015. On a positive note, the review was positive and was even titled “excellent choice for domestic travel.” On Airlineratings, SATENA is painting a pretty picture, since passengers are really happy with their comments over their experience with the airline. In fact, the most recent posts are rated with 10/10.

Even if SATENA doesn’t have much information online, we believe this government-owned Colombian airlines sure has been one of the most used airlines in Colombia, not only based on reviews, but also based on the information we gathered. It is safe to say that it’s worth to fly or try to ride with SATENA if you’ll visit Colombia.

Comair Reviews

NOTE: Please do not confuse Comair Limited with the Comair which was once a subsidiary airline of Delta Air Lines and had ceased operations on September 29, 2012. In this review, we are talking about Comair of South Africa.
past
You might be wondering what “Comair” means. Comair was initially founded by the Novick and Moritz families in December 1943 as Commercial Air Services. The airline started using Fairchild aircraft for scheduled services from Johannesburg. In 1961, under the management of Donald Novick, Comair operated with 2 Douglas aircraft and also expanded its fleet to jet aircraft.

Now, Comair operates scheduled and domestic services in South Africa as a British Airways franchisee and also as a low-cost carrier under its own Kulula brand. Comair Limited is headquartered at OR Tambo International Airport and serves as an affiliate member of the Oneworld airline alliance. The airline now has a  growing fleet 15 Boeing and even caters international routes to Mauritius, Namibia, Saint Helena, Ascension, Tristan da Cunha, Zambia, and Zimbabwe.

Flying with Comair

Through acquisition, expansion, and partnership, Comair Travel offers South Africa’s largest and broadest digital travel distribution network. It provides a vehicle that delivers travel to the retail and wholesale markets, using the most advanced technology available.

Since the airline is flying under the brand of British Airways and Kulula, we can’t give a definite description on the inflight cabin services of Comair. The best thing we can do is to refer to these following links:

Official Website and Mobile App


Comair Reviews-pageComair’s official website is not modernized and is a bit more like an official site of a business company. As noticeable, other airlines will normally have the options to book and manage flights on its front page, but not with Comair. The South African-based airline provides information about the company, their investor relations, media room, careers, and corporate responsibility.

Scrolling down, it shows the different partner brands and other airline information such as their services and policies. To learn more about each of these functionalities, just click on the icon at the top right which says “Navigate” and a list of options and services will show in a column.

Unfortunately, Comair does not yet have an Android or an iOS application, so it means a travel app was not yet created for a mobile version of the services offered online.

Comair Reviews of Customers

We were able to find Comair reviews online on Skytrax. Good news, they’re dated this year and bad news, they garnered only an overall 5/10 rating from 31 Comair reviews. According to passengers, the airline was one of the few air carriers they enjoyed flying with. The reviewer even said they had an excellent flight overall and the landing was smooth. On a positive note, even if Comair only got an average rating overall, at least the most recent reviews are all positive. To see more of these Comair reviews, click here.
