| I thought I give Blue Air a go as it offered direct flight from Liverpool-Bucharest and as I go to Bucharest 2-3 times a year, direct flight was most appealing since I mostly get flights from Manchester to Bucharest (connection flights Germany), so the direct flight appealed. My experience wasn't a pleasant one, even though I paid for allocated seating (extra) the air hostess asked me to change seats, (4 rows away from my originally seating I paid for) because a passenger with a baby choose to not purchase a seat for the baby, meaning baby would of been in mother harms all the way, (cost saving by the passenger), but as I was travelling alone and spare empty seat next to me, I was asked in Romanian/broken English by the air hostess would I move to another seat so the lady with the baby could occupy 2 seats. I wasn't pleased, since the passenger choose to cost cut by not paying for 2 passengers and only paying for 1, again Romanian cost cutting. During the flight, the airline offered inflight meals (at cost) I prepaid for my meals when booking, I chose from the menu, and what I received wasn't quite like the picture menu, it was a hot meal overcooked and food was dry. I also noticed the air hostess lacked politeness and looked like the job was a chore... but saying that, the only positive was the price of the ticket was extremely cheap compared to other low cost airlines. I guess pay for what you get, and I feel if you don't mind low standards to get to your destination and without connections and got travel on a budget then I would recommend blue air, but I wouldn't travel with them again. I went from Liverpool-Bucharest and online checkin wasn't available - which only leaves the passengers queuing at the checkin desk, which Liverpool only had 1 checkin desk and Bucharest had 4 checkin desk - I was queuing almost 1 hour to check my baggage in while some passengers haggled luggage weight with checkin staff, which seems common practice at Optopeni airport.
