Worst service ... I will advise anyone not to ever register or sign up with you guys. I signed with you guys and decided to get a trip to Nairobi Kenya. Just a day after signing up, i lost my nanny and decided to cancel my trip because it might clash with the date of my nanny's funeral. I called you guys in less than 48 hours to refund my money to me. I was put in a long waiting queue for days. My number is 07704918900 you can check for evidence. I finally got through to someone two weeks after who told me my trip cant be cancelled and my money cant be refunded back to my account. And this was even two weeks before the trip. I am soo disappointed with your service. All your agents keep telling me i was put on long waits because of corona viruses and they very busy.

Disastrous for my health. Without the passenger who was the paramedic I am not sure if I would have survivied the flight. He stayed with me all night feeding me slowly to keep me hydrated.
