Small Planet Airlines Reviews
Lithuania is a country found in the southernmost part of Europe with over 150 nationalities and the majority are Roman Catholic in religion. 75% of the country consists of flat land with plains. Now, in this review we will be talking about the leisure airline of Lithuania. The former flag carrier of the country was flyLAL-Lithuanian Airlines, but it suspended operations in January 2009. Air Lituanica is another airline of the country that also ceased operations in May 2015.
flyLAL-Lithuanian Airlines has a sister company that operates on a separate license which is known as “FlyLal Charters”. In this review, let’s check the quality of Small Planet Airlines.
Origins and Ownership
To avoid the confusion, Small Planet Airlines was initially known as “FlyLal Charters” which traces its roots back to March 2007. It was in 2010 that the airline operated scheduled flights to Greece, Spain, Italy and various other countries. In the same year, FlyLal Charters was rebranded as Small Planet Airlines. The airline has a total fleet size of 7 Airbus A320-200 in which for expansion, they ordered 20 more Airbus A321-200. Small Planet Airline operates from several hubs: Gdansk Airport, Katowice Airport, London Gatwick Airport, Vilnius Airport and Warsaw Airport. Manchester and Verona Airport are just seasonal.
Small Planet Airlines caters nonstop destinations to Greece, Spain, Turkey, Egypt, Bulgaria and other countries with a total destination of over 40 destinations (by estimation). The airline has only one colorful type of service on board wherein all passengers are commenting about the lively colors of the aircraft to staff. Their inflight menu called Sky Menu offers a variety of snacks and beverages, but passengers can also pre-order meals before the flight. For gifting purposes, their Sky shop also offers on board shopping. Magazines, pillows and blankets are provided for comfort and entertainment while the kids are offered toys, coloring books and they also have a Kids’ Sky menu.
The Official Website
The official site of the airline is as colorful as their livery is, while you are on the page it will give you an impression that you are actually on Windows 8. When I accessed the site, it also gives readers and viewers more than the airline’s service, policies and procedures but it also gives travelers a brief background of how they stand out. In case of a language barrier, the language selector appears at the top right of the page.
As shown in their company description, they are the “Fastest growing charter airline in Europe”, but let us check how good their score is with Small Planet Airlines reviews.
The Lithuanian airline is really one of the best airlines in Europe, based on Small Planet Airlines reviews from Skytrax alone. The airline had gathered a total score rating of 7 out 10, these are evaluated and rated from 31 Small Planet Airlines reviews. What’s more is the most recent reviews are all scored 10/10 by passengers. Here’s one of them:
“We are just back from a flight from Gatwick to Corfu return and both flights were a pleasure. The seating was good, crew friendly and attentive and the pilot kept us informed of turbulence. The food served was quite acceptable especially the veggie meal I got on the way back. We were on a flight chartered by CV Villas, I don’t know if that is why the food was free. Wine was included on the return afternoon flight too. The whole experience was way better than my last British Airways flight (from Rome).” – J Shorrocks from United Kingdom
