Flight reviews


14 July 2011 Lagos - Port Harcourt flight review (Aero Contractors, Economy Class):

Aero Contractors, hidden costs and poor service.

"... First problem, Aero Contractors Airline deducted money from my ATM while paying for my ticket online and I didn't get a booking reference number displayed on the screen, however I got an SMS alert showing the payment has be deducted from my bank account ..."

"... Luckily I made it to the Airport early enough, spent a lot of time queuing at the customer service desk and was given my ticket at the help desk 15mins to the departure time of my flight and asked to just rush to the checking counter. To cut this very long story a bit short, after all the rush with my baggage's, I checked in and proceeded to go through security only to find a check or should I say cash extortion point ..."

"... What do you know its FAAN (Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria) collecting N2,500 "Passenger Service Charge", with my flight already boarding and the last boarding call been relayed over the public address system. I still delayed and asked the lady what is this money for? she cared less to answer my exact question but instead just said I must pay the charges as its mandatory payment by the airport authority ..."
