    I booked this to celebrate my wife's 70th birthday and she hates flying. But I had no need to worry. All the staff were friendly and professional and made us feel very welcome. The flight was brilliant with great views of New York, especially as the weather was perfect. I would recommend this trip to anyone and so would my wife!!!
