World’s Crappiest Airline Companies

by on Jul.27, 2015, under Travel

Here is my list of the worst airline companies in the world!


In Peru you should make sure you never fly with Taca. They are cheap and they are shit, they are one of the worst airline companies around. They cancel flights all the time with no warning and they don’t show any signs of customer service.

2. JETSTAR (budget airline owned by QANTAS, AUSTRALIA)

Despite initially loving their cheap kick-ass fares, Jetstar quickly proved their lack of customer service to me in 2011. I had started a new job and been lucky to be given a whopping THREE days off in my first month, just so I could fly all the way back to the UK to attend a wedding. One of my best mates as a child was Michael McClelland and so I wanted to be there in Belfast for his big day. It would also be my first time in Northern Ireland for some 800 days – my longest ever time away from my native land. So I booked 2 flights with Jet Star as it was just so cheap even with connections, I then booked another two flights with Air Asia and Easyjet meaning I could get home to Michael’s wedding, but would have 4 flights to take, a half day in Kuala Lumpur and a full day in Paris on route. Two cities I’d been to before, but hey I could see family and attend a wedding and keep my job as a school teacher in Hong Kong. All the flights were cheap. All looking good.


In Argentina I had a nightmare with Aerolineas as they scheduled a flight of mine before the first flight had even left the city the second flight needed to be in, in order for it to arrive on time.

– changed the time of my first flight THREE times

– moved me to a completely different airport in Buenos Aires

– cancelled one of my flights (the third flight)

– delayed the new flight they put me on (refusing to even give me a FREE COFFEE)

– and most ridiculous of all they later scheduled me onto a second flight which would leave before the first flight had landed. Their excuse for this was a computer error.

4. Airline Company Cathay Pacific

They lost my bag in 2012 on a long haul flight from Hong Kong to Heathrow. When my bag didn’t arrive in Heathrow I had no time to waste as my connection to Belfast City Airport was in 55 minutes so I had no time to even complain. Again I have to thank my girlfriend who sourced my bag in the end. It was still in Hong Kong 3 days later and was found. Cathay Pacific offered NOTHING in compensation, but eventually delivered my bag (safe and sound) to my parents home where I was staying for a week.

5. Horrible company Air Asia

Where do I start – Air Asia are fucking atrocious! I have been on about 7 – 8 Air Asia flights down the years and they have never ever once been on time. They never offer you any kind of compensation and their customer service level is shocking. I can’t begin to say how much I despise Air Asia. Please take my advice and NEVER use them. My recent Air Asia experience in Hong Kong Airport was actually the catalyst for this blog post. Here’s a quick overview of what happened.

– Air Asia are a shit airline company

So fellow travellers, please let me know what airline companies you think are terrible. This is my list of 5 shit airline companies, all from personal travel experiences. I won’t be booking with them again or recommending them. And a travel writer and blogger is exactly the person they don’t need to upset.

So chin up and happy travels and don’t let these horrible companies get you down!

    There Are No Restriction When You Are Flying On A Private Jet

    by on Aug.27, 2011, under Travel

    There are many things that you think of when you think about a private jet. The first thing that comes to mind is the convenience of what flying on a private jet entails. You have the convenience of not having to arrive at the airport hours early, just to sit around and wait for you flight. You have the added convenience of not having to wait in lines to check your luggage and make your way through the security check-points.

    Also, you are not restricted on what you can take onto the plane with you. If you happen to have been drinking a bottle of water when you arrived at the airport, you can take that onto the plane. In fact, you can bring any food and drink that you choose to take along. You could literally carry on an entire large pizza if you really wanted to. Better yet, have the charter company have everything ready for you before you arrive, that can be something simple like a catered deli lunch or a four star meal.

    It is up to you. But other than food, you don’t have to worry about what you pack, you can take along your medication and personal products such as shampoo and other necessities without having to worry about some low paid security officer digging through your belongings and commenting on them. The name of the game is privacy and with a private chartered flight, that is exactly what you get. So these are some advantages, but there are more.

    Besides saving time in the airport, the booking company can take care of several other arrangements for you. They can arrange transportation to and from the airport and any other transportation that’s need while at your vacation destination. They can offer security services for very important clients or extremely important cargo. Armed security and body guards are not beyond the capabilities that are available.

    The service will work out all of the logistics and details, all you have to do is make them aware of what you expect and then sit back and enjoy the trip. Another huge advantage is that the jet charter will only be occupied with men and women that you choose it to be occupied with. Family, friends, business acquaintances, are all welcome to fly along, but there will never be anybody that you don’t approve. You make the final decisions and what you need is what they give you.

    If you are looking to take a private charter to San Francisco be sure to stop by privatejetchartersanfrancisco. For charters to Los Angeles go to privatejetcharterlosangeles.

      Top Private Jet Features That Will Have You Giving It A Try

      by on Aug.24, 2011, under Travel

      There are several reasons why people or groups should charter a private jet rather than flying regular commercial airlines. Here are a couple of the top reasons:

      1. Conserving Money For Group Travel

      In contrast to popular belief, private jet charters are actually more reasonably priced than paying for airline tickets if flying with a group of people. For instance, if a group of eight excursion friends were to arrange a 2 hour flight excursion and each commercial airline ticket would cost $600.00, then the group would spend $4,800.00 overall. Private charter jets typically charge per hour for flights, therefore if the group were to charter a jet at $2,000.00 per hour, cumulatively they would save $800.00.

      2. Piece Of Mind

      With the continuous threat and reports of terrorist attacks on airlines quite a few individuals, groups, families and professionals will often select a private charter jet for this reason. Private jets are also upheld on very strict specifications for repair and maintenance. Any customers who are cautious in regards to the jet’s current condition are welcome to this information prior to leaving the ground, giving passengers reassurance while traveling.

      3. A Relaxing And Peaceful Environment

      Private charter jets offer lots of space for passengers. Various sizes of jets are available, but travelers can take pleasure in flying alone or in the company of familiar passengers. Commercial airlines are notorious for unjustly small seats in coach and very little space in first class, either. Almost every single traveler has at least one tale to share concerning an awful experience including being seated next to an unlikable individual or loudly crying infant.

      4. Journeying For Imperative Business

      A great number of business professionals tend to charter a private jet rather than flying commercial airlines. There are a number of advantages for most professionals. Those who need to travel in between important meetings, with very little time, find charter jets a very reliable option. For groups of professionals, private charters are normally scheduled for the reasons of on time arrival, privacy and comfort.

      5. Attractive Extra Features Or A Spectacular Experience

      Private luxury jets are often scheduled for special events as a result of of their many appealing features. Some include dining areas, high quality TV with surround sound, a mini-bar in addition to very spacious seating accommodations. Perhaps a couple will arrange a private luxury flight following their wedding; private luxury jets are fashionable for special parties such as a bachelorette, bachelor or birthday event.
