if you intend to travell to sharm with excel from manchester be aware that they are using air malta planes for this journey at present so no in flight movies going down.on return the air malta plane stops at malta to refuel and change crew.they told us it was because of strong winds etc and they didnt have enough fuel but some people had letters dated last september stating this would happen.so be warned as the flight takes an extre 2 and a half hours extra to come back

It appears that Excel use any air line that will sub-contract to them. In November I traveled on a French line after booking Excel. They also appear to be very strict on weight allowances at Manchester, they even weigh hand luggage and a number of friends have had to pay up to £50 excess baggage.

<font color='#000080'>Tell you what, Whehn I win those Millions on the Lottery, I'll invest in an airline and insist on them putting a Manchester - Sharm route. Excel will then shxt them selves at the competion and have to bend to diver requests. I have Monopoly.

Does any one know of an airline where we can book direct rather than having to book a package because we can get really good rates on liveaboards but can never book just a flight:p
