Flew with them last September.
Using them again next month........ 150€ each return including suitcase & reserved seats. (Malaga to Birmingham was 22-50€ basic). Cheaper than Ryan Air & Monarch.

We're trying them to come back in Sept from Manchester - would have gone out with them too but for the very late flight time ...

My friend got bus, 4 hours from Highlands to Edinburgh Airport yesterday with her grandchild. She was flying to Malaga at 7.30pm, going to Fuingorola. Got to the airport at 4.30pm. Then told plane would have 2 hour delay, technical fault. Then went to over 3 hours - trying to get hold of alternative plane. This meant that they would be in airport from 4.30pm to past 10.30pm. Having got on bus in Invernes at 12 noon. Then told that it would be midnight. Thoroughly fed up by this time, she said she wished they would just have told everybody to come back tomorrow and at least they could have found a hotel and got a night's sleep. At midnight they all got on the plane, at last, great excitement. When they got on the plane and the doors were shut, they were told they would have to wait another two hours there due to French air traffic control strike. Naturally folk were crying, babies screaming and the usual coughing and sneezing etc which are more apparent in silent plane. She is seriously considering not using planes for a while. If you take the train, you can at least get off and stay the night somewhere. She said, after all before she got to Malaga had been out of her house for 18 hours anyway. What do you think plane versus plane these days?

Same thing happened to us last September, but at midnight we were told to find a hotel and fly out next day. Managed to get a hotel on 5th try wandering the streets of Edinburgh. Nobody cares

I don't understand the logic of the powers that be at Norwegian Air......... have been trying to find a flight from Málaga to Birmingham for next month.
Nothing for the whole of November so I contacted them, only to be told that they no longer fly that route!!
You'd have thought Norwegian would have been trying to fill the gap left by Monarch.
So now the choice is Ryan Air, whose flights are few & far between at the moment, and the occasional direct flight with Vueling.

Agree Maureen, these days when i'm looking to book flights i'm finding myself thinking about which airline is the most consistent rather than who has the cheapest fares. If it's not Monarch going bust or Ryanair canceling flights then you can rely on French air trafic control to put a spanner in the works..
My daughter arrived home yesterday from Malaga on a Ryanair flight, the pilot said "Thank you for flying with Monarch" :lol: Looks like Monarch pilots have rescued them.

Flying Norwegian for the first time for our Xmas trip back to the UK. Hand luggage only but at the moment I can't see any way to checkin online. There is a link in MyTravels but it doesn't seem to go anywhere just reloads the same page. Too early probably, but surely then it should display a message saying so.
Regards

Flown Ryanair many many times and have never once heard the Pilot have any interaction over the tannoy with passengers just the irritating pre-recorded Ryanair jingles they play upon landing and taxiing to stand!!

Not a very user friendly website last time we used it.

"never once heard the Pilot have any interaction over the tannoy with passengers "
Recent flight heard announcement either from trolley dolly or flight crew asking passengers to take their allocated seat as the weight distribution had been calculated.....what a load of codswallop!

I'm sure all airlines have their problems, but I can only say that having flown with them at least six times in the last two years I haven't, as yet had a single problem with them !

I don't think you can check in online with Norwegian, you have to check in at the desk !!

Not codswallop, simple physics if you have a 200 seat aircraft carrying 100 passengers and they all decide to sit on one side of the plane you will overstress the airframe and probably cause severe inflight problems, weight distribution, not rocket science !!
