| London Gatwick to Malta with Air Malta. What can I say, but all in all a poor effort on all fronts. Delayed leaving the UK (30 minutes) and seriously delayed leaving Malta (7hrs - having left the hotel at 6:30am to catch the 8:50am flight). We missed our connecting flight home and had to book a a subsequent later flight at an additional cost to us. They have a serious lack of communication, albeit we got vouchers for food and drinks. As always they will not comment on what exactly went wrong other than 'it went tech'. These things happen, but it would be nice to inform you as soon as possible and then keep you updated and just do it as required according to the EU rules and flight delays. Even when we were told the flight would be leaving at 3pm - that did not happen. The plane itself, looked tired it been through a lot. The seating cramped, when compared to our Island carrier - Aurigny and their Embraer E195 a regional carrier. How is this possible? Also, upon vacating the seat I noted how the cushioning remained depressed. Obviously a well used seat. Generally the interior of the plane although clean, it too looked dated. The lack of inflight entertainment is a poor effort. The food: poor effort once again, a filled bread roll and a bottle of water, I would rather not bother, in fact I didn't. When you consider Aurginy you will have at least a choice of soft drinks/tea/coffee and of course water. This is certainly not a experience I wish to repeat, it ruined a perfectly good holiday. Ultimately, if we ever returned to Malta, I will ensure my family and I choose an alternative carrier.
