The flight was ok, the plane was modern but the service was appalling. First we had to pay to check in at the airport and then pay to take our hand luggage on the plane. We couldn't even put the bags through the hold as that was going to cost the same price. It was a rip-off. Then my friend wanted to change his seat on the plane and he was told he couldn't unless he paid some euros. Absolutely disgraceful company. I will never fly with this airline again
