Baggage Allowance & Information:
Dublin to Alicante. To start I decided to bring my wife on a short break of 5 nights to Alicante for our upcoming 10 year wedding anniversary.I thought that I would book a holiday with 2 of our friends and without the kids which is the first time ever. We booked flights to Alicante flying from and back to Belfast for the 21-26 Sept 17 only to be emailed that due to operational commitments that the flights are cancelled. We got compensated and sorted things out, no big deal. We book for Dublin and arrive that day nearly 4 hours early only to be told that due to technical faults our flight was delayed by nearly 2 hours give or take. We got over that as going on a holiday even though we knew that because of their delay we were going to miss out on a full night in our apartment. The real mess started when we boarded the plane.
Budapest to Dublin. Our flight was fully booked. Check-in was slow, but boarding was easy and we left on time. The plane hadn't been cleaned properly. There were papers on the floor and my travel magazine had a wad of chewing gum in it. The cabin staff was pleasant and welcoming: the flight itself was okay. However, the airline does not offer free refreshments, and one must pay over 2 Euros for even a bottle of water.
