“Personally, I would not choose to fly with Air 2000...”

Written on: 19/05/2007 by justminis (1 review written)

Personally, I would not choose to fly with Air 2000 (First Choice) again. I think the service is pretty poor, their planes are old and certainly do not have any leg room. I am over 6 feet tall and for the duration of my outbound flight, my knees were in the back of the seat in front of me… Read Full Review

“Let's just say, we could never travel economy again...”

Written on: 16/06/2006 by polkadots (16 reviews written)

Let's just say, we could never travel economy again after upgrading on first choice. The flight attendants were polite. The cherry on top of the cake (pun intended) had to be the food, a spilling over the menu, we were served a feast of tender meats (yes, they do have vegetarian meals) and just pure yummyness really. It was well worth the extra money paid. First choice was first class!… Read Full Review

Written on: 22/03/2006 by frankcrane (1 review written)

After booking a holiday through First Choice we flew Air 2000 and arrived at manchester airport on 6th of March at 7.30 am for a flight to Gran Canaria at 10.15am, only to be told our flight was 7.30 hours late and we would be taking off at 17.40 which turned out to be 18.00 hours. The rest of the day no one could be contacted from first Choice and the service just said they had no information. I don't no about calling the company First Choice I would think its more like LAST CHOICE… Read Full Review

Written on: 13/11/2005 by superchick92 (4 reviews written)

We flew with Air 2000 on our way to Corfu for a relaxing holiday. The Airline was a very bad choice, as I think they took the route of going over storms just to frighten the passengers. The food was going everywhere, and once we got out of the storm, the staff wouldn't even come and clean it up. I didn't dare go to the toilets in case we hit another storm, so I don't know whether they were clean or not. I'm just so glad we got to Corfu, as I really did think we would never make it… Read Full Review

Written on: 23/07/2005 by shaun t (1 review written)

I flew from Manchester to Las Palmas on an Air 2000 Boeing 767. Outbound flight code AMM188C. Checked in at Manchester 2 and a half hours before take off, everything went smoothly. Our flight was supposed to depart at 7:45am and we was asked to board at gate 215 at 6:45am. We took off at 7:20. The aircraft was quite old and it seemed that it was struggling to get off the ground during take off. Meals were nice, staff friendly, the seats seemed old but they were bearable and the toilets and… Read Full Review

Written on: 21/05/2005 by Cashmere Donegan (6 reviews written)

I had heard lots of horror stories about Air 2000 but I didn't mind flying with them as I had flown with them a few years back to Barbados. So I thought that flying from London Gatwick to Montego bay Jamaica would be fine too. How wrong was I...

Ok where should I start. I booked my ticket less than two weeks before which meant I had to collect it from the airport. When I got to the airport the lady behind the desk couldn't find my reservation, I was told I would be flying on Britannia but when… Read Full Review

We went with Air 2000 in March to Alicante, check-in at Manchester was very good same can't be said about Alicante. When we booked this we was asked if we would like a child's meal you pay extra for that but they are especially for them, so we thought why not, when it came i could not belive it my son had the same has us and the only difference was he got a cheese cake i thought what a waste of money that was when i asked about it the cabin crew said that's what the children get i wouldn't be… Read Full Review

Awg's Response to pauline360's Review

Written on: 21/05/2004

It's such a shame that a brilliant service is let down by such a trivia as on-board meals. But you know, these are the sort of things people remember as it's human nature to recall the negative before the positive. Have Air 2000 sorted out the food yet I wonder?

Written on: 25/02/2004 by AWG (48 reviews written)

February 2004 Air 2000 'ticketless' flight booked online. Manchester to Alicante / Alicante to Manchester. Booked many months in advance - quite a good saving, although still well over £600 for three adults and a child. Air 2000 e-mail you the full details, you print it out, and then take it to the check in desk on day of travel - simple as that! Flight departure time from Manchester was altered weeks before, - received a phone call from Air 2000, followed by another e-mail. Boeing 757 (the… Read Full Review

Written on: 25/02/2004 by smoser20 (1 review written)

The flight with Air 2000 was brilliant. Had excellent seats and the staff could not be more friendly.
The food was delicious, not very often on a charter flight!!
Take was on time and early on return. Duty Free was good, although limited when you are flying to Menorca and back.
The aircraft was spotless and was one of the aircraft that had been re-sprayed to the new colour scheme, which is attractive, bright and distinctive… Read Full Review

Written on: 04/02/2004 by tafer2uk (16 reviews written)

We upgraded our seats with Air 2000 to fly to Goa as we had previously flown there in seats with a pitch 0f 29" (Monarch Airlines), that was absolutely torture, so decided to pay £200+ per person for upgrades. On checking in at Gatwick there was only one Premium Cabin check in desk, we waited for 30 mins to be checked in but there was a problem with the group in front of us so eventually had to check in at an ordinary desk, very disappointing.

In flight outbound the food was good by airline… Read Full Review

Written on: 14/08/2003 by camera (2 reviews written)

We went to Malaga with Air 2000 and overall the plane was clean and the staff were friendly. The check-in queues were all right in length but as there were so many of us we could check in at the premier desk. There wasn't much leg room, the food wasn't great and I noticed the plane was quite loud during take off though it quietened down afterwards, but what more can you expect from such a cheap airline? During our stay a girl came to join us and went on air 2000 as an unaccompanied minor. She… Read Full Review

Written on: 19/02/2003 by Kate. (1 review written)

I flew to Antigua with Air 2000 in September 2002 The flight only had a 30 minute delay which was expected after reviews! Air 2000 seemed to be very similar to other charter airlines which are all sub standard to scheduled. My partner and I each paid £250 for the upgraded seats to premium economy. We were both very disappointed in this. The space for premium was about the same as an economy seat with British Airways and was comparable to Go or Buzz etc. There was slightly more legroom (around 4… Read Full Review

Hope right you are we flew to the Dom Rep with Air 2000 and had premium upgrades, legroom was disgraceful, could not see Video monitors due to position of seat, food despicable, staff unhelpful and only £209 have complained to be told most people are very happy with the service!! I would not recommend any body to fly with this carrier

<br>"Air 2000 seemed to be very similar to other charter airlines which are all sub standard to scheduled".
<br>
<br>Of course charter flights are sub standard to scheduled that’s why they're cheaper! If Air 2000 "seemed to be very similar to other charter airlines", then that wouldn't suggest that air 2000 are no better and no worse than any of the others.
<br>
<br>You get what you pay for in this life. If you want scheduled class treatment, go scheduled!

<br>Comment by Steve Hartney on 6th Jan 2004
<br>
<br>" I would not recommend any body to fly with this carrier".
<br>
<br>Oh! And what "charter" carrier would you recommend people to travel with?
<br>
<br>Charter flights rely on getting as many paying bodies on a plane as they are allowed to get away with. And shifting them for the minimum expense.
<br>
<br>That way they can offer reasonably inexpensive travel and maximise profits.
<br>
<br>Cheap travel and package holidays are about moving the masses around. Not about luxury and first class treatment.
<br>
<br>As someone who has travelled extensively around the world both scheduled and charter. I have found that people to me as I am to them. IE if I'm nice to them they generally are nice in return.
<br>
<br>Maybe our reviewers may like to bear this in mind on future sojourns.

Written on: 25/08/2002 by Jess. (1 review written)

My family and I recently flew with Air 2000 from Manchester to Tenerife. Everything from the word go went so smoothly. The check in queue went down quickly, staff were helpful and the plane left on time.
We had a fab holiday and we were very sad about leaving. When we had to go home we arrived at the airport 2 hours early as required, as did everybody else. We were queueing for 30 minutes before the queue started moving which was rather disappointing. Our flight home was at 3:10 am so we were… Read Full Review

Written on: 27/12/2002

I flew with Air 2000 in September of 2002. I had gone on holiday to Tenerife with my grandad and grandma. We flew out with Monarch. It was a bad flight. When we got to Tenerife we made up for it because we had a very good time. Coming home, we were flying on Air 2000. It was a great flight. The stewardesses were very helpful and friendly, we had LOADS of leg room and the in flight entertainment was superb. All in all, Air 2000 is one of my favourite airlines and I would definetly fly them again.

Written on: 10/06/2002 by James Delabole. (1 review written)

We flew with Air 2000 to Reus (Costa Dorada) as part of a package holiday earlier this year and I have nothing but praise for the airline. Check in was straightforward at Manchester and we didn't have any delays. Baggage collection at Reus was relatively pain free. The return journey was more difficult as our coach arrived late at the check in and our family was informed that we would not be able to sit together. some polite but firm discussion (our youngest is 2!) resolved the problem. Overall… Read Full Review

I would just like to say that when you book you can usually pay a small fee so that everyone travelling can sit together. Otherwise unless you have a good reason you'll probably have to sit apart.
