Trip Report Open Skies airline

Jump to last reply

(April/May 2011) IAD - ORY - round trip. Wife and I thoroughly enjoyed the flights late April, returning early May. We were attracted by what we considered very good value for business class flights and were very pleased with the treatment on both legs. Meals, drinks and crews were all very good. The flight attendants were very pleasant and attentive. Both flights departed and arrived on time. The lounges at both IAD and ORY were fine. At ORY the security and customs is the "speed" line and went smoothly. We flew Easy Jet, R/T, ORY to Pisa and were pleased with that experience, as well. Frankly, connecting from ORY to other destinations in Europe is really good. It doesn't seem as congested as CDG and the London airports, but it was my first experience, there, so maybe we just lucked out.
The only negative on the trip was not the airlines' fault, but the arrangement (or, lack thereof) at IAD for clearing customs and security when returning international, trying to connect at IAD. After you clear customs, you had to go through security again -- we came very close to missing our flight back to Florida. It seems as though they could have a way to avoid going through security, again, if you are connecting and not leaving the gate area.
Thumbs up for Open Skies.
