Pleasantly surprised...

Review of kbad about the flight Aviastar Mandiri between Bali and Labuan Bajo on 30/08/2013 in Economy

Note: This review is about an experience that happened more than 3 years ago.

These flights were part of a package trip to Flores, departing from Denpasar. I can only say that we were pleasantly surprised with this airline and the flying experience.

The planes are obviously not brand new, and onboard service is minimal (which didn't prevent the hostesses from serving light meals on each of the three flights – the return flight departed from Ende and included a stop-over at Tambolaka).

In terms of basic comfort, it was no worse than certain low-cost airlines from Europe (for flights of the same duration).

Despite the reservations we had about blacklisted airlines, these flights were perfect, with three very smooth take-offs and landings. Check-in involves using very basic check-in kiosks, but our baggage arrived safe and sound – no delays whatsoever.
Should the occasion arise, we won't hesitate to use this airline again!

Merci beaucoup pour votre avis mais également pour la photo :D.

Après quelques petites recherches, la compagnie possède 2 BAE146 similaire à celui sur votre photo. L'âge moyen est de 21 ans, ce qui n'est pas catastrophique surtout qu'ils étaient précédemment dans des compagnies de qualités. Après si le transporteur assure une maintenance de qualité il n'y a pas trop de soucis.

N'hésitez pas à poster d'autres avis sur les vols que vous avez pu effectuer.

Bonne journée et bon week-end
