After reading reviews (almost all negative), we were apprehensive about using this airline on May 21 and 28, 2016, on the Nantes - Heraklion route.
Impeccable takeoff and normal flight but there was a huge windstorm from the Sahara over Crete.
Turbulences +++ and a very scary landing.
"Bravo for the pilot" said a colleague from a French airline, a passenger like us. (The morning planes tried to land 3 or 4 times before going to land in Chania or or Athens).
Perfect return flight with a smooth landing. The flight crew was very pleasant; of course the sandwich wasn't terrible but they offered various.
That's rare on a low-cost flight.
The Airbus was very clean.
Obviously the comfort on some of the seats left something to be desired because of a bar in the back.
So, future passengers, don't worry, just enjoy the flight.
