What our customers said
"There was a single lady travelling with two young children on my flight seated ahead of me. The cabin crew were helpful with putting luggage in the bins, etc."
"The cabin crew were really helpful."
"Since staff were exceptionally helpful, I would assume travelling with babies would be well supported."
"Families with small children and the elderly were given first priority for boarding. More airlines should follow this example."
"They were very, very nice to us. By the time we were seated, a stewardess had brought a little toy for my son. When we flew with them when my son was six months old, they gave us an amenities bag with everything we needed."
"Bassinets are larger than some other airlines."
