Punctuality of the flight:
The flight was on time.

Comments on the check-in staff and any issues:
Luqa Airport is considerably small for an international airport, but then so is the country to which it belongs to! There is not that much traffic at the airport as one would expect, and also it feels like a desert! The check in procedure was quick and smooth. The time it takes to go from check-in to the security is around twenty minutes. The airport is comparable to the likes of, say, Geneva International.
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:
Dinner was served around an hour after take off- the timing was great. The meal consisted of neatly sliced pork seasoned with a generous portion of salt and pepper. There was a healthy portion of boiled baby potatoes and vegetables (again seasoned with salt and pepper). This was accompanied with a soft bread. The pork was lovely, fresh and soft to the tongue.
As always with airline meals, the highlight of the meal was the dessert. You cannot go wrong anywhere in the world when you are presented with a banana mousse sprinkled with small chocolate chips.
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.
Comments regarding the in-flight snacks (if any): None
Comments on the in-flight system (if any):
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.
