Since it has been a year, we will be starting to write new reviews about the travel sites we once wrote about last year, just to give you a heads up of the current status or changes of a particular online travel agency. Things can change within a year; that’s why we decided to rewrite about some of the travel search engines and give you the freshest feedback for 2016.

In this review, we will be re-talking about AirlineMeals.

AirlineMeals Reviews 2016

The travel site that provides “Nothing but airline food” was established in 2001 by a 40-year-old admirer of Turkish cuisines. Marco Hart showed appreciation over Turkish food and started to take pictures of his meals on board, since he’d been flying back and forth between Amsterdam and Turkey to visit his Turkish girlfriend. Then, sharing his meal photography to his friends at home aroused attention.
AirlineMeals Reviews 2016-page

It was during his free time at work, browsing through his album of inflight meals, that he thought of making a domain that will help frequent flyers (like him) share what an airline offers on board. He literally searched online for airline meals and stumbled upon only 20 images. He saved them and sought permission to use those images as part of his own web page, which is now more commonly known as “
AirlineMeals.

How Does AirlineMeals Work?

In 2002, AirlineMeals stopped its growth since there were no available images to add the site. The founder thought of seeking help from travellers to send images. This had boosted the development of AirlineMeals. Now, the travel site had been one of the most useful online references to determine what will a customer expect during their flight on a specific airline.

AirlineMeals Reviews 2016-reviewsBasically, the purpose of the travel company is not to earn money. AirlineMeals freely gives information on the airline’s meals on board. What makes it more accurate? Actual passengers like us are the ones who share pictures and snapshots of their current inflight meal.

And, as of today, AirlineMeals has over 720 airlines listed on their domain with a reference of 40,120 pictures which grows daily. The main page displays the most recent image of the inflight meal posted on their site. It also gives the option to check on the full review given by the actual sender of the image. Information include the date of flight, which airline, flight number, and aircraft model.

AirlineMeals Reviews 2016-logo
How To Reach Them?

Overview

AirlineMeals doesn’t disclose information regarding their head office or any contact number to call. Regarding that, Marco Hart doesn’t need customer service for the travel site since they don’t accept payment and no money or sale is involved. Like last year, the travel site doesn’t have reviews posted online. This is probably because AirlineMeals just gives us feedback about inflight food. Who would have thought someone will have the heart to actually give us an inflight menu right before you book with an airline.

GasBuddy App Reviews

GasBuddy was considered the game changer in the travel and mobile technology industry. The gas-monitoring app actually was founded in 2000 in Boston, Massachusetts. The quick-progress app had been the main reason why they are popular now. Just imagine a travel app that provides real-time fuel prices around the world.

To download this travel app for free, click the following links below:
Android: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=gbis.gbandroid
iOS: https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/gasbuddy-find-cheap-gas-prices/id406719683?mt=8
GasBuddy App Reviews-mobile-app

How Does the GasBuddy App Work?

Since the creation of GasBuddy, the travel company had already extended its network from the US to Canada and Australia. They actually have more than 140,000 stations worldwide, and if you’ll check their status, there had already had been 60 million users who downloaded this innovative travel app. Of course, GasBuddy came in handy to travellers who frequently hit the road. It is still important to monitor which gasoline station is up ahead or the nearest. You wouldn’t like ending up in a wrong turn movie.

GasBuddy App Reviews-featuresKidding aside, GasBuddy helps you to find the cheapest gas and what’s more, users can report gas prices to help other travellers locate the cheapest in town. Of course, there’s a benefit in reporting as a customer: travellers get to own points and use it as an achievement to win rewards such as $100 free gas.

While on the GasBuddy app, customers just have to select their current location or let the GPRS work its wonders. GasBuddy will automatically give you the option to “Tap to see gas near you.” It will show you a list of prices, locations, and distances of the gasoline stations near your current location. This will save you time, money, and gas to wander around because you know where to pull off next.

GasBuddy App Reviews of Customers

We tried to check on GasBuddy App reviews and we found out that GasBuddy had been receiving a lot of praises from its users. Either from App Store or Google Play Store, the mobile application garnered an almost-perfect rating. One customer actually said:

“I love this app! It helped me find a gas station just a mile from my house that I never knew existed. This app is easy to use and save you money.”

How To Reach Them?

Conclusion

If you’ll ask me, I would definitely install this travel app since it’s reliable and legit. I was actually amazed that some genius had actually come up with this idea. This has been more helpful compared to the Waze app. I was more than convinced to use this app after actually making this review. To be honest, I found out this review from someone in Sydney who had thought that this travel app originated from the US. I’ll keep you guys updated about this app.

Have you used the GasBuddy app before? Feel free to share your story below!

Gatwick Airport Reviews

Gatwick Airport initially started as an aerodrome back in the late 1920s; the first terminal was built in 1935. Though, the major development of the airport was made in the 1950s. Now, Gatwick Airport is known to be the second-largest airport in London. Today, let’s discover more about the airport’s origins.

Aesthetics

Gatwick Airport Reviews-foodWith the airport that serves more destinations in the United Kingdom, LGW or London Gatwick Airport had carefully prepared for the number of passengers that travel through them every day. Their information centers are handled by a multi-lingual staff and they’re operational for 24 hours. This  is one  of the ways of knowing the whereabouts of the airport’s facilities.

There are several restrooms located throughout the airport, and showers are available at the Regus Express Business Lounge. There are also free charging ports at the airport, just to keep your devices fully charged. To stay connected? WiFi connection is free for the first two 45 minutes. Because, it will require you to sign up again after the first 45-minute consumption.Gatwick Airport Reviews-shops

Since the airport is open for 24 hours, they tolerate overnight travellers. But, it should be expected that the most available spot to sleep on is the floor, though their benches have armrests. Food establishments are not all open for 24 hours as well; they operate depending on the stores’ varying schedules. The same goes for the stores, but three of the duty-free shops are open all-day long.

Directions

Gatwick Airport Reviews-national-expressThe cheapest way to get to and from London and LGW is by airport bus services. But, there are also other means of transport, such as the National Express which approximately takes 2 hours’ travel time. Taxis can be more accessible because they can take you to London in just an hour. If by means of driving, the airport is directly accessible from the M23 motorway.

Location – Traffic – Service

Gatwick Airport Reviews-british-airways
Gatwick Airport is about 28 miles south of London. LGW operates as the hub for British Airways, and had successfully accommodated 40,269,087 passengers last year. The public international airport has more destinations served in the United Kingdom compared to other London airports. Gatwick Airport’s top destinations are Barcelona, Dublin, Malaga, Amsterdam, Madrid, Dubai, Geneva, Copenhagen, Alicante, and Faro. LGW has only 1 runway and 2 terminals.

Airport/Terminal Map
Gatwick Airport Reviews-map

Gatwick Airport Reviews and News

We tried to read 503 London Gatwick Airport reviews posted on Skytrax, and the only thing we noticed was that travellers were not that happy with LGW’s services. Majority of the feedback are complaining about the airport’s long and unorganized lanes. One reviewer even said:

“I think that Gatwick airport is one of the worst I use as a chauffeur. Short stay car park never fully open and very difficult to navigate. No heating in arrivals. Even writing this the phone signal connection is bad. I can’t believe they think they should have an extra runway as they can’t even manage what they have now.”

Though, on a positive note, a plan of creating a link rail between Gatwick and Heathrow Airport is being on project and they will consider it being called “Heathwick” once it’s done.

Conclusion

Despite the low rating online with 4/10, Gatwick Airport had been more than keen on managing their ways to fix their flaws. They’ve been continuously working on developments and adjustments for their future in the travel industry. It was never easy to accommodate thousands of passengers on a daily basis. But, even so, LGW is on the 45th rank on the top 100 airports in the world.

Air Panama Reviews

The second-largest Panamanian regional airline traces its roots back to 1980 as PARSA, though certain services were operated as Turismo Aéreo. At the time of its start-up, Panama had been ruled by a military dictatorship government since 1968, but together with Aeroperlas, the company became one of the biggest and most prominent airlines in the country.

In January 1999, the airline moved its headquarters to the new Albrook – “Marcos A. Gelabert” International Airport, when the old airport located in Paitilla was shut down after 70 years of operation. In 2005, the Air Panama trademark rights were acquired. The name had been unused since the demise of Air Panamá Internacional in January 1990, and PARSA formally adopted the new name that year.

Inflight with Air Panama

Air Panama Reviews-cabinMixed Air Panama reviews are shown online as to how many cabin classes does the airline have. Some say six, categorized as Economy1, Economy2, Economy3, Economy4, Regular, and Preferencial. However, the most relevant source said that the regional has only one exclusive class of service: Customers. Moreover, passengers in need of special assistance are carefully accompanied. A passenger is considered disabled when their physical or mental condition requires some special attention during boarding or disembarking and cruise flight.

With regards to customers travelling with pets, all animals must travel inside a cage or suitable container to fit the travelling pet.

Air Panama has several aircraft which include Boeing, Islander, Cessna, Fokker, and Piper. And, their cabin can accommodate up to 150 passengers to several international and domestic flights.

Official Website and Mobile Airline Reservation App

pagemobile-appUnlike other regional airlines, their official site is modernized and full of information. Not to mention, it’s easy to navigate. The main page provides the option for airfare booking while the bottom part shows a list of promotions and most-booked trips with them. The web page’s language is interchangeable from English to Spanish.

Air Panama doesn’t have a mobile app similar to other major airlines’, but definitely has a “Mobile Airline Reservation App” wherein customers can buy their tickets online using VISA/MC and even make hotel room reservations plus transportation to and from airport. The reservation app is available for both Android and iOS users.

Air Panama Reviews of Customers

We tried looking at Air Panama reviews online and we only found one on Airlinequality. The customer gave the airline a 7/10 rating on March 11, 2016 when he said, “A short domestic return flight from Marcos A Gelabert to Bocas Del Toro with Air Panama, on an ancient Fokker 50. The interior looked really tired and on the return trip there was a bad smell in the cabin. On the way out, really friendly and smiling FA’s, less smiles on the return. A snack and a drink (even local Abuelo rhum) were served free of charge. Both flights on time.”

Though, apart from that actual review, there are no more feedback posted online.

Overview

We have to admit, Air Panama has limited information about its services compared to the country’s flag carrier, Copa Airlines. But, with the reviews shown and all the information we gathered so far, it doesn’t seem bad to fly with Air Panama. We had to remember, the carrier offers both scheduled and charter passenger flights to more than 31 destinations from its hub at Albrook International Airport.

Beijing Capital International Airport Reviews

What is known to be the main international airport serving Beijing traces its roots back to March 2, 1958. The airport then consisted of one small terminal building – which still stands to this day – apparently for the use of VIPs and charter flights. The first international flight to China and Beijing Capital International Airport was of Pakistan International Airlines from Islamabad. From then on, the progress of the airport had been steady. Fresh from hosting the 2008 Olympic Games and adding its new terminal building, Beijing Capital has overtaken Tokyo Haneda to be the busiest airport in Asia based on scheduled seat capacity.

Getting To And From

Beijing Capital International Airport Reviews-beijing-subways-airport-expressThe Airport Expressway links Beijing Capital International Airport with the city centre. From the centre, take the ring road to the expressway and follow it in a northeasterly direction to the airport site.

Beijing Capital International Airport Reviews and News

After we checked on 216 Beijing Capital International Airport reviews online, we found out that the airport got an overall rating of 4/10 from several customers. One recent review posted was actually a complaint when the customer said, “Unhelpful and rude staff, horrible restaurants at Beijing Capital Airport. Long and inefficient lines for security checks. The airport could be cleaner too. Overall experience quite negative, especially considering that we are talking of the airport of the capital city of the country that wants to be the global power.”

Due to capacity limitations at the current airport, an additional airport facility is planned for the Daxing area, scheduled to open for business in 2018.

As we all know, China is the most populated country and they also hold the most densely populated city. With these facts alone, it makes us aware that it’s not easy to run Beijing Capital International Airport. However, they were still able to be part of the Top 100 Airports in 2016. Kudos to BJS!

“We’re not just an airline. We’re a way of life.”

This has always been the company slogan of Envoy Air. Today, let’s discover this airline from Fort Worth, Texas, United States.
american-airlines
The wholly-owned subsidiary of American Airlines Group traces it roots back to 1984; Envoy Air began as a collection of regional carriers with contracts to carry the American Eagle brand name. Until 1987, these third-party carriers flew under contract with American Airlines to provide regional feeds to its hubs. In 2014, the company changed its name to Envoy Air Inc., but American Eagle continues to live on as a brand, and so does its livery for Envoy-operated and third party-operated regional flights.
Envoy Air Reviews-employment
The airline uses a similar loyalty program: AAdvantage (from American Airlines). Envoy Air has a fleet size of 169 Embraer and Bombardier which cater air services to 170 domestic and international routes. With over 1,800 flights a day, serving 159 cities across the United States, Canada, Mexico, and the Caribbean, Envoy is considered to be the world’s largest regional airline system. Envoy is an affiliate member of the Oneworld airline alliance.

Official Website and Services

One thing I noticed and was amazed about Envoy Air was their official site. The background is actually moving and promotes the airline’s services, crew, and fleet. As shown on their official site, it’s pretty much not like your typical airline webpage. It doesn’t promptly give customers the option to search and book a flight with them, because this option is done directly on American Airlines.
Envoy Air Reviews-page
Their official site mainly gives information about aviation employment career opportunities. Categories are divided to Pilots, Flight Attendants, Mechanics, Customer Service or Corporate queries. The goal they have for their employees is to take passengers from where they are now to where they want to go – whether it’s a short-term stay or a lifelong career. Unfortunately, since Envoy Air is not the direct company airline, they don’t have a mobile app.

Envoy Air Reviews of Passengers

It actually wasn’t easy to find Envoy Air reviews online. Though, we were able to find some on Indeed and Glassdoor. Both commenting sites gave the airline an overall ⅗ star rating. One former station agent posted on the 26th of September 2016 saying, “While working for Envoy, my fellow coworkers were wonderful to work with. No one bothered us as long as we did our job and did it efficiently. The hardest part of the job was the communication between management and staff.”

  • Head Office Address:      4301 Regent Blvd, Irving, TX 75063, United States

Conclusion

Opportunities are given out to those who deserve them. Envoy Air is definitely one of the aviation companies you should look forward to work with, but on inflight terms we are not sure about that. However, knowing they are under American Airlines, it’s safe to assume the airline’s quality is similar to its parent company.  In fact, if you recall, last year we gave American Airlines a 5-star rating and Skytrax had ranked the airline up to the 77th spot this year from the World’s Top 100 Airlines!

Mark and Amy Trim used to be travel consultants who rooted the beginning of RoundAbout Travel in August 2008 from frustration and confusion over around-the-world fares. They kept it simple and decided to do something about it. They expanded to 13 staff with an excess of $60 million turnover per annum in round-the-world airfares to/from Australia.

What is RoundAbout Travel?

RoundAbout Travel looks dull and boring. They could use an update to modernize their website. I bet a good company deserves a good-looking official website. Because, above all, first impressions last. Customers might be dissatisfied upon looking at the layout of RoundAbout Travel alone. Though, given the simplicity of RoundAbout Travel, it provides the company’s news and reviews.

Overview

Well, after writing this review about RoundAbout Travel, it’s safe to say that Australia had successfully created a unique travel business out of RoundAbout Travel. Though, the only thing we can advise is for them to update or modernize their official site. The rest is almost perfect. Who wouldn’t want a round-the-world travel in one booking?
