We paid Ј639 for the tickets. Flight severely delayed due to mechanical (landing gear) problems. Had to wait while, as they interestingly put it, "try to find someone to come and fix the plane with a new part". Ten hours later after we were due to depart, we were finally seated on the plane. The aircraft was old and dirty. Seats ripped and broken and not affixed to the floor properly (floor screws loose). Tray tables broken on some seats. Flies in the cabin. Unhelpful staff. Vile tasting tea with no milk, tepid food. The pilots door was left open a lot thus posing a security risk. Had the most terrifying landing of my life on my return flight to London Gatwick. There was an announcement from the steward that there was a problem with the shim prop (something to do with the landing gear) and in broken english it was also announced by the steward "we should land okay". Now I really love flying but the descent was so fast my stomach was in my mouth for most of the descent and that in itself shows too fast a descent. As the plane hurtled closer towards the runway it hit the tarmac with such sheer force that everyone screamed. The aircraft sped down the runway at such a speed and didnt stop for some time. When we eventually came to a stop there was no apology from the cabin crew, noone were asked if the passengers were ok. I'll never fly Kathargo again, the airline does not care about their passengers and the planes do not feel safe. That landing has made me nervous to fly again. They need investigating.
Kathargo Airlines charter flight Dublin - Monastir return. Operated by a Boeing 737-300 The leg room was adequate for a charter, hot meal service both ways which was good . Cabin crew, no problem, meals and drinks served with a smile, soft drinks free, with alcoholic drinks priced between 2-3 euro, alot cheaper than what other airlines charge. We had a four hour delay on our return flight, kept well informed, which was due to the inbound flight being delayed in Vienna. Given vouchers to use in the departures cafe for refreshments / sandwiches, which was more that adequate for a mid afternoon snack. Outbound flight from Dublin left on time, and arrived ahead of schedule. After reading a few of the negative reports on them on this site, I expected the worse, but I would have no hesitation flying with them again, it seems a lot of the reports about them is over rated. It's not a UK airline, it's based in the country that you are flying to, try speaking a little French to the crew - that brings a smile, sit back and enjoy your holiday!
Cardiff to Monastir return. Never again with Karthago Airlines. Dirty cabin, seat pocket full of rubbish, ripped seats, I had a person in my lap all the way home as the seat wouldn't go vertical, and my rear end on a broken spring all the way there. On the way back we could actually see the flight deck as we took off as the door wasn't shut - again very off putting. Food was ok, but tea and coffee sparse and cold. A lot of the duty free goods were unavailable.
