Other European Frequent Flyer Programs - Montenegro Airlines
Has anybody flown Montenegro Airlines at all? In business Class? We are choosing between Montenegro airlines from London to Tivat or BA to Dubrovnik followed by a 3 hour drive, but a pretty drive and solid business class airline. We will be travelling in July so a bit worried about traffic and time for birder crossing. Love to hear thoughts and comments on Montenegro airlines as alternative.

I would avoid flying YM. Business Class is nothing, seats same as in Economy. YM E-Jets are new, but the Fokker 100s are ancient. On-time performance and reliability of YM are certainly not up to BA standards. Also, Tivat Airport is small. i would much prefer to land in DBV, where infrastructure is much better.

I agree with svajcarac about the quality of Montenegro Airlines service, but you need to take into consideration the 3 hour drive you've mentioned.
In the summer there could be long queues (lines) at the border crossing, so your 3 hour drive may become 4 or 5.

Any other suggestions on how to get there from London?

I find them slightly better than JAT.
- Staff is less Sowjetesk
- Planes are only ancient not stoneage
- Reliability is a bit better (only 2 massive delays and rest on time on Montenegro and almost nothing on time on JAT)
- Communication of delays is just as horrible. Use blackberry travel app to know how badly they are lying to you.
- Once I re-upgraded myself as I had a full-C ticket on Belgrade Podgorica but was donwgraded at checkin. I took the seat of a deadheading crew member who did not complain to me and went in the back. Drinks from plastic cups, sandwich served (probably same as longer flights get in Y).
On JAT I feel very unsafe, on Montenegro just unsafe. Hope this helps.
