Air Malta: plugging the gaps with any old plane

Air Malta’s attempts at plugging the gaps in its schedule, created by one plane in its official fleet being out of service for weeks, have become more worrying still. A reader of this website messaged me from Milan airport last Friday afternoon, where he was meant to be boarding Air Malta’s flight to Malta and instead found himself boarding the plane below.

At 1645 we are leaving on this piece of shit. An old plane, chartered from Lithuania, with pretty hostesses speaking broken Eastern European English and communicating with each other in their own language. 

What a shame Air Malta is resorting to this. And from Milan, an international hub, with affluent people flying on this. You should hear the comments on board. It’s put us to shame and makes a mockery of what Air Malta is.
