Operational Notes

Please see some feedback from the crew below:

The departure was swift taking off at RWY 5L, it was smooth for the entire flight with ATC short cuts helping. The passengers enjoyed the catering provided by the broker which they self served along with the champagne provided.

They were assisted during the flight to find items with the Captain going into the cabin to assist during the flight. We were Sent direct to the approach from Lisbon saving time for the arrival.

The passengers personally thanked the crew once they disembarked. The Handlers spent time assisting pax with a hire car for their onward journey.

Are the crew to arrange the champagne for the return?

Please be at the airport 30 minutes before scheduled departure time. If you are delayed for your scheduled departure, we kindly ask that you update Falcona.
