Most of my "special experience" flights have been much lees than full-service ones!

1 hour 45 in a ropey Cessna 150 (about 23 years old! - the aircraft not me)

Being dragged off the ground by winch at what seemed an almost vertical angle, strapped into a steel tube and fabric covered contraption laughingly called a K-13 glider - no tray of tea & stickies on that flight!

After these flights and others the fact that all I get for my money is a seat and a safe flight - who cares! Seriously, don't knock 'em 'til you've tried 'em - you may find that you like what you get.

One of my favourite flight was a sector from Columbus(Ohio) to Orlando on a very stormy afternoon, dodging the build-ups all the way across the Southern States whilst enjoying the hospitality of Southwest AL - packet of peanuts and a glass of cola - just an awe-inspiring experience flying at 350 looking up 15K fet to the flat tops of the thunder clouds - all for $109!!!

What I like most from travelling to a unknown city is to discover it all by myself.

Let's hope this service is succesful - Manx / British Regional / British AW had their service many years before they pulled out of Cardiff, and people who I know flew on this service said loads were always ok.

Unfortunately, Air Wales' marketing does not seem to be a strong point.

All you guys in belgium should get over here to Wales and visit us - it's a beautiful country, though CWL is not the greatest airport to spot at!

Indeed, there must be a market as the previous service to EBBR lasted more than a decade: 08/04/1991-05/01/03.
