There were no baggage delays on this flight.
Comments on the check-in staff and any issues:
There were no problems. It was a smooth flight.
Comments regarding the pre-meal service:
None. Passengers had to pay for the food. The good old days of getting free food on some European flights has disappeared.
Comments regarding the first meal:
None. Passengers had to buy the food, and the prices are a bit on the expensive side. Nevertheless, for such a short flight there was no need for in-flight meals. Flying without getting complimentary in-flight meals is just not the same experience as used to be (irrespective of how long the flight is).

Comments on the in-flight system (if any):

Very professional and polite.

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.
