Sun Air (a heretic confesses)

As a bit of a newbie when it comes to BA travelling, I was saddened when I realised that I would be flying LCY to BLL with Sun Air mostly because of the lower tier points and the fact that flying from LCY is my least favourite thing ever.

But it was a great trip

It was on a 22 seater plane with one cabin crew who only sat down when forced to for take off and landing. During the 100 minute flight we had:
  • VAT with snack
  • Cold meal (chicken pasta with roll type thing) with two wine
  • Ice cream
  • Choice of Whiskey or Cognac

As a man of certain tastes, this was most welcome.

I'd do it again

Do you mean compared with doing an indirect routing?

Sorry to hear you had to pay VAT on your snack.

We don't hear much about EZ on this forum so good to know they provide a good service. I'm surprised BA franchisees don't harmonise their catering to match BA, but it's good that they apparently don't.

So what's wrong with LCY?

no lounge and the facilities are very cramped. Also the security and border control are a bit grim compared to other London airports (in my experience)

I'm not hugely up on tier points but I only get 10 each way for these flights compared to the much shorter AMS which comes in at 20 or 30 each way

But the number of TP is just down to what fare class you are booked in for each flight in question.

On both of these routes (AMS and BLL):
Discount Economy - 10 TP
Flexible Economy - 20 TP
Business - 40 TP

[You should not have got 30 TP on AMS in any class.]
