Hi i just got back from cardiff after 1 weeks holiday in jersey,here is the report. 13th August 2005 Flight Number:WW2903 Type: 737-300 Ref: G-TOYD Seat 17A departure: Cardiff scheduled: 14:00 estimated: 14:15 actual: 14:15 arrival: Jersey scheduled: 15:10 estimated: 14:45 actual: 14:45 Me my mum my dad and my sister set off for cardiff airport at 9am for a 2pm flight to jersey where we would be staying a week with my aunt. we got to cardiff at 11:45am and waited to check in at check in desk 13 and 14 we had to wait till 12:30pm till check in opened and then we checked in. We then went upstairs to get some food and when sitting in burger king you can see the apron and i saw a mytravel a320 plane land from palma. We got called into departures and waited for the flight at 14:05pm we boarded G-TOYD 737-300 and pushed back the plane was full and we departed at 14:15pm into the rainy clouds when we took off the plane clapped a very good take off, once in the air the trolly service came on and we were cruising at an altitude of 23,000ft and about 10-15 minuites into the flight the captain came on to tell us that we were now decending into jersey as there was very strong winds up there. By that time everyone had been served and we came round and flew over the island, we landed on runway 27 early it was a bumpy landing and everyone applauded as we landed as they did when we took off. We parked at gate 6 25 minuites early after only a 30 minuite flight from cardiff. It was a great flight and very good service and i was amazed it landed so early. Rating 10/10 20th August 2005 Flight Number:WW2904 Type: 737-300 Ref: G-TOYD Seat 18A departure: Jersey scheduled: 15:50 estimated: 16:45 actual: 16:45 arrival:Cardiff scheduled: 16:50 estimated: 17:30 actual: 17:30 Before we departed for the airport i looked on the cardiff airport website to see if our plane was on time leaving cardiff, and noticed that the flight was now departing at 15:00 instead of 14:00. When we Got To The Airport after a great week in jersey and with 1 great tan :p. We went to check in desk 8 for the cardiff flight and were notified there was a 15 min delay we went to the cafe to have some lunch and spend more time with our family and noticed that on the board it changed from 15:50 to 16:30. Then there was a announcement that the flight was now departing at 16:40 and at 16:00. I went up to the viewing gallery and spotted our plane landing we were then asked to proceed to depature gate 13 we boarded at 16:20 and then the flight crew miscounted the passengers and had to re count 5 times before they got the right count. We left 55 min late and departed from runway 27 over st ounes bay and climed to 20,000 ft our shedualed flight time was 40 min the captain told us but once again 15 min after take off we were making our decent into cardiff, the flight crew were great again we landed 45 min after leaving jersey. The flight was great and i recomend bmibaby to anyone great service clean aircraft and it is a great all round airline i had no problem what so ever with them. I Will Rate Them 10/10 as they were brilliant.

flybe from gatwick which will be good
Don't you count on it, here in Jersey they carry the name FlyMayBe. You can virtually guarantee a delay, and I can guarantee you won't be getting a sun tan at Christmas.
