This was my first time to fly Air Malta and my first time to fly to Malta as well. We departed from Heathrow Terminal 4 on time and landed around 10 minutes earlier than schedule. The check-in staff were very friendly and helpful. There was no rush- everything was smooth.
Comments regarding the pre-meal service:
Choice of drinks (tea, coffee, orange juice, apple juice, lemonade or coca-cola), and a selection of Maltese red and white wines.
Comments regarding the first meal:
Lunch was served around an hour after take off (Just as we were over Paris...check out the photos!!). The meal consisted of roasted beef balls served with a healthy portion of slightly spicy steamed rice. This was accompanied with a soft bread. The beef balls were delicious- nicely blended in well with the fragrant rice. This was a traditional Maltese meal served with pride with true Maltese tradition!
The meal seems a bit small, but it was enough to fill the stomach for such a medium haul flight.
Comments regarding the drinks service:
A second round of drinks was offered after the meal- this included the complimentary selection French and Australian red and white wines.

In the A320, the in-flight system was provided in the form of a map of the route.
Comments of professionalism of the cabin crew:
Very professional staff and very friendly. They served in a true Maltese tradition!
Improvements that could be made:
This was a great flight, and on such a short flight, it is difficult to find any faults. Everything was just fine.
Comments on the interior of the aircraft (including seat comfort):
The aircraft was clean, the flight was not full and it was very comfortable to be able to sit and enjoy the flying experience with Air Malta.
Overall rating 1-10 (worst-best): 10
About Airline PR
This is a special section on Airline Branding, and Airline Public Relations written by me on all the flights I have been fortunate enough to have been on. These are not records taken from somewhere else, but are actual flights I have been on. Most of the flight trips are officially sponsored by the airline companies in order to promote their certain routes, and aircraft. Airline promotion and PR related work in the aviation industry is one of my expertise.
