The flight that was enough to drive one mad

Review of Clément C. about the flight Ukraine International Airlines between Paris Charles De Gaulle and Bangkok on 14/08/2012 in Economy
Clément C. PS / AUI CDG / BKK
Note: This review is about an experience that happened more than 3 years ago.

This was a long-haul flight from Paris to Bangkok with a stopover in Kiev.
You can understand that for the first flight, a flight of approximately three hours from Paris to Kiev, you aren't going to be able to enjoy the best in terms of comfort, and you can accept that. But flying for over nine hours from Kiev to Bangkok in tiny seats, at night-time, and with no entertainment available (everyone had personal screens, but they weren't working) is enough to drive you mad. I've never in my life had such an unpleasant time when using a form of transport. The state of the fittings and equipment inside the plane was such a cause for concern that you might ask yourself whether the budgetary cuts could have perhaps affected the most essential aspect: safety. The return voyage was exactly the same, which suggests that this airline is one to avoid completely; and all the more so considering that the prices aren't that attractive!
There was little information provided during the flight. The meals were of average quality, though they did provide some miraculous relief from the deathly boredom that had to be endured. Don't expect anything other than water unless you're prepared to spend money!
The only positive thing was that there were no big delays and no baggage was lost, so there was that at least.
I will avoid this airline at all costs in future.

Avis très intéressant sur une compagnie peu utilisée à ce jour sur des vols en transit... Quel avion avez vous pris sur Kiev BKK (un 767) ? En tout cas merci de votre contribution. La prochaine fois, regardez les promotions dans le blog de WTF, vous y trouverez des propositions imbattables avec transit souvent dans le golfe avec un service top classe...

Vol Barcelone Bangkok . vol barca Kiev en retard du coup loupé la correspondance pour Bangkok. Le lendemain nous sommes partis sur Paris. 45 min de retard ou nous avons prit le vol Paris Bangkok avec Air France :). Arrives a Bangkok sans les bagages... Voyage complètement hors pair.
