A small plane but great service

Review of MathieuAvGeek about the flight Eastern Airways T37313 between Lyon and Lorient on 19/12/2014 in Economy
MathieuAvGeek T3 / EZE LYS / LRT
Note: This review is about an experience that happened more than 3 years ago.

On the ground in Lyon:

This was an interior flight between Lyon and Lorient made on a small plane (JetStream 41) with 29 seats.

The check-in process was sped up to a few minutes in the Lyon airport and I could choose my seat.

Carry on luggage is forbidden when the flight s full, but that wasn't the case on this flight, so I could keep my bag.

On board:

The plane was very narrow and didn't have compartments for carry on luggage.
The seats were comfortable, although they didn't recline.
The plane, a turboprop, was loud (they passed out earplugs before we took off).

The service had 4 sections:

- During the roll-out: They passed out candy and earplugs.
- After takeoff: Hot or cold drinks + chips + cookies.
- At cruising altitude: A hot perfumed oshibori was distributed.
- Landing: Candy passed out.

The windows were huge and they offered reading material on board.

The stewardess was very friendly and cheerful. The French copilot made announcements several times during the flight, explaining where we were or providing flight information.

On the ground in Lorient:

Nothing in particular to say. Baggage arrived in 2 minutes.

Bonjour MathieuAvGeek,

Bienvenue sur What The Flight !

Merci beaucoup pour ce premier avis qui en plus est le premier sur cette petite compagnie.

Deux petites questions :

La PNC était francophone ?
Il y avait-il des WC à bord ou c'était comme chez Twin Jet, pas de toilettes du tout ?

Vous avez déjà un autre vol de prévu ?

Bonne fin de journée
