| Stansted to Boston. Primera Air offers budget flights from the UK to the US using Airbus A321 Neo aircraft. I flew from Stansted to Boston on 6th August. The check in process at Stansted was a pain because Primera Air doesn’t offer online check for US flights. There is no automated check in so all passengers, including those with just hand luggage, have to queue. Although the 7-hour flight to Boston passed without incident, there were major delays at both airports. The plane took off almost an hour late from Stansted. In spite of arriving in Boston on time (this airline pads its schedule to a ridiculous extent), we sat on the apron for 30 minutes, waiting for an available gate. To add insult to injury, we were kept on the jet bridge for a further 20 minutes. Although I only had hand luggage, it took me 90 minutes from landing to leave the airport. The service onboard the flight was minimal and there was little real food for purchase. Drinks were reasonably priced. There was no entertainment system. The aircraft was new and the onboard experience on my flight was reasonably good. I would use Primera Air again but wish they would sort out the problems they have with airports and ground agents. I also wish they would modernise and introduce online check in for US flights.
