Review of Yontoryu about the flight Vueling Airlines VY 1225 between Palma and Lyon on 30/10/2013 in Economy

After a very nice stay in Majorca, I had to make my return trip to Lyon with Vueling….
It was my first flight with this airline and the negative reviews that I had seen on this site were far from reassuring….

So, boarding at the Palma airport at 12:30 (a short delay, but nothing too serious).
The plane, an A320, was comfortable, clean, and there was enough legroom despite my height. It was not the best either, but for a low-cost airline it was very acceptable.

The captain, who was very nice, presented all the members of the crew and regularly gave information about the flight that I didn’t fully understand because he spoke very fast in either English or Spanish. The flight attendants were also as nice as the captain and they were all smiling.

Another positive point: the airplane was half-full and there were many empty seats. I was almost by myself in the back of the plane, so I was able to enjoy the flight without being disturbed. I was also able to change my seat in order to admire the view from the other side of the plane. The cabin temperature was adequate and entertainment was the usual for low-cost flights: magazines and ads.

Nothing to complain about the pilots, except perhaps for the landing, which was a bit rough, though it was surely more due to the wind than to the pilots.

We arrived at the Lyon St Expupery airport 15 minutes early. Nothing to complain about the luggage (neither loss nor theft), but the wait was a bit long before the bags arrived at the terminal.

In short, a pleasant flight that removed my doubts about this airline, with which I would gladly fly again!
