Fokker 50, loud and shaky!

Review of Mélanie2189 about the flight Cityjet between Paris Orly and London City on 08/08/2014 in Economy

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

Since I don't usually fly on planes this size (2*2), and I'm kind of afraid of flying, this flight seemed a little long ^^. What I noticed the most were the vibrations in the cabin and the noise of the propellers. It didn't reach the point where I had to plug my ears, but I would not have wanted to fly on this plane for more than 2 hours.

The space between the seats was pretty good, but my friend had some problems adjusting the seat, which kept reclining for no reason (the jerk!), the problem ended up being a button that was a little broken that had been jammed, basically.

Cabin entertainment: the usual in-flight magazine, but there were no screens on such a small plane for such a short flight.

Takeoff and landing: no problems on that front ;)

Boarding was delayed by 20 minutes, takeoff was more than 30 minutes late.

There were no compartments in the cabin for carry-on luggage so a steward took them when we entered the plane and put them in the hold.

There was one steward for the whole cabin (although at the same time there were 40 of us at most).

Bonjour Mélanie

Merci pour ce nouvel avis.
Effectivement, les Fokker 50 ne sont pas les avions les plus silencieux. Petite question, vous dite que le steward vous a pris votre bagage cabine pour la mettre en soute, mais sur les photos on voit des coffres à bagages. Ils étaient trop petits ?

Encore merci pour votre fidélité.
