Heathrow - Geneva ( LHR - GVA )
2.0 /5
Date 2018-02-19 Age 31-50 Class Economy

Flight cost 700.00. I would consider that expensive. Great on the way out, terrible on the way back. Delayed by 2 hours, then helf.on the plane and further delayed..although the crew were nice with a young child I would have rather had the option to rebook and not be held on a flight sitting on the tarmac

Date 2018-02-19 City United kingdom Age 51-70 Class Economy

I was very disappolnted that having paid about ? 25 per seat for 3 seats to be near the front, we were given row 37, which happened to be the second last row!! Very unimpressed as one of the passengers was a toddler. I haven?t reported it as have tried to register a complaint before and not had any satisfactory replies or explanations.

Excellent. For a tall passenger the metal edge of the overhead locker door is an unexpected hazard.
