From sorting out a complex flight to recommending a good hotel for a stopover you were just brilliant. Thank you so much. As an organisation it is a big achievement to have every single person being helpful and efficient.

Flew to San Pedro Sula

I've used DialAFlight quite a few times and I've never had a bad experience. I really like the way that no matter how much research I've done they're generally able to offer something I haven't thought of. Also on the rare occasion they can't beat a price I've found they're honest enough to tell me and don't try the hard sell on something I don't really want. Several of my friends now regularly book with you following my recommendation and all have been impressed.

AA business class seat on our return, although not up to BA standard, did exceed our expectations, and the food was very acceptable.

You did your job, I paid the money - that's how it should be.
