Very good despite a few little flaws

Review of THIBAULT about the flight Chalair between Paris Orly and La Rochelle on 21/10/2013 in Economy
Note: This review is about an experience that happened more than 3 years ago.

The departure flight was on a small plane with about 20 seats.
Boarding was done by bus. On the ground the pilot greeted us and and wished us a good flight. To enter the Beechcraft we almost had to crouch down—it was absolutely impossible to stand up. However, once we sat down it was comfortable and pleasant. The pilot came around to give us a box with 1 Coke, 1 bottle of water, 1 packet of cookies and crackers. In short, we were taken care of starting right after boarding. During takeoff the plane made some noise but we got used to it quickly and it wasn't that disturbing. The landing in London was perfect, although 15 minutes late.

On the return flight, boarding was done on foot. From the outside it looked like the same propeller plane, but on the inside the seats were completely new, you could stand up and there were lights on the floor—basically a real jet. The pilot forgot to serve us food so we didn't have anything to eat. Admittedly it was a 1 hour and 15 minute regional flight, but on the ticket it said there would be a snack. Really the only drawback, despite the perfect landing, was that this time the luggage wasn't given to us when we got out of the plane but instead on the floor of Orly's Terminal W, which made us lose some time.

The takeoff was 20 minutes late but the arrival was 10 minutes early.

Bonjour et merci beaucoup pour ce nouvel avis.
Voilà, le premier avis sur Chalair de posté.
Vous avez visiblement passé des bons vols :)

Pour les Beech il y en a deux les 1900 et 1900D, le second étant un où l'on peut se ternir debout.

Vous repartez bientôt ?
