Hi all/ I need to start this post by mentioning that in 2020, for the first time probably since 1999 I have not taken a single flight. Which is pretty sad all said. Hopefully 2021 sees me take to the skies again – fingers crossed! However I do want to go through the flight reviews I did which are actually for my trip in late 2019, and rank the top five for you as tis the season to do review style post!
So in reverse order, let’s do it!
Number 5 – Ryan Air Seville to Lisbon
Look, Ryan Air wasn’t ever going to be the best flight of the year, but it was everything I needed it to be. I had a nice seat in the front row with heaps of leg room, I prepaid everything to avoid nasty fees at the airport which Ryan Air are famous for. The flight itself ended by flying over Lisbon which was especially picturesque. Nothing to complain about in the end.
Number 4 – Qantas Singapore to Melbourne
The Qantas flight was unremarkable but it was an overnight flight taking me back to my home country and I managed to sleep on it despite having slept at the airport for a few hours.
Number 3 – Singapore Airlines – Melbourne to Singapore
This flight was very solid indeed. Comfortable, during the day with a good entertainment system, not outstanding but very solid.
Number 2 – Emirates Lisbon to Dubai
Although I took two flights on Emirates last year, and although the second flight was on the A380 which I think is my favourite in cabin plane – my favourite was in fact the Lisbon to Dubai flight simply because it was so empty! And I had loads of room to spread myself about. Great service as always, in general I was impressed as ever by Emirates.
Number 1 – Air Astana
Air Astana was the best flight I took last year. It was very atmospheric, with purple lighting, very comfortable, left on time, good food and good service, not to mention an excellent entertainment system. Check out the review –
Thanks so much for popping by today. Have you managed to get on a plane in 2020? And how was it? Thanks for reading and May the Journey Never End!
