With so many airlines nowadays, the complementary in-flight meal and drink is a joke (or non-existent in the case of BA). Such a nice surprise to be offered a tuna baguette or a cheese and ham croissant on this relatively cheap flight to Munich.

This was just a short trip, but we were well looked after. We will definitely use this airline when next we visit Norway.

Very pleased that we left on time and arrived on time. It was a late afternoon flight and a fine day for the flight so I had a good view of England from the air. Food was the usual cheese roll, but that was fine as I like cheese. Seat was just fine, comfortable enough for this short trip.

Great door to door service, comfort, speed and on-board service excellent. It would be better if the boarding gate would open earlier as Stansted is not the most comfortable to hang about for a couple of hours waiting. Air side is much better but could not check in.

This was a small plane, but I have to say it was very comfortable, the staff were friendly and helpful, and I was surprised when we were offered food and drink free of charge. It was a very pleasant trip and I would definitely use BMI again.

BMI out of Southampton is to be avoided at all costs. I was booked in on the early morning Monday flight and arrived in good time only to find out the floght was cancelled due to "staff shortages". A lot of people who use this service regularly were incredibly annoyed but not surprised as this is a regular occurence. I...

I found this provider to be a refreshing change from Ryanair who used to run this service. The whole experience was more relaxing and less chaotic than before. I was able to take a bag in the plane and 23kg in the hold, which took away the stress of not being able to take liquids, and packing everything into a...

Smooth comfortable flight, helpful, funny and caring flight crew. Swift delivery of hand luggage items and transfer from tarmac to terminal. Small hiccup for the return flight when the Monday morning delay was beautifully handled by the piclot and crew. Thank you for this almost privet-jet like experience.
