Always fantastic service. Wouldn't use anyone else!
The trip was great overall. United Airlines were disappointing going out with poor food, no alcoholic drinks available and no inflight entertainment for the whole journey!
Mike was so helpful and courteous the whole way through from booking to departure. His knowledge was priceless and problem solving second to none. I would highly recommend DialAFlight and will definitly be back to book again
Rupert has been dealing with my travel for the past 20 years and I am always so grateful for the service he provides.
The initial help from Trevor was invaluable. Great trip.
Trevor’s a legend!
Tammy is a wonderful professional and always gets me a good flight deal
I’ve dealt with Carter for over 10 years and very rarely disappointed
Ian was a pleasure to deal with. Nothing was too much trouble and I would definitely use him again.
Great hotels, excellent service from Miles. We all really enjoyed our trip. First time we used you and definitely will be using you again
Troy, as always, was great to deal with and always looks after us.
Hotel couldn’t have been better located for our particular needs. Very impressed. Transfers worked well and can't speak highly enough of the advice and support we received from Byron throughout.
Very impressive service
You were recommended to us and did not disappoint. It was very reassuring and unusual to have a dedicated person/team to help with our enquiries.
I have sent a complaint to Heathrow about the disgraceful way the people who need wheelchairs are treated. Everything you dealt with was perfect.
Service was great from booking right through to the final information received about our flight and hotel. Will certainly be using again.
My brother recommended Gordon to assist with our break and he was extremely helpful in sourcing our NYC trip. He was on hand to answer all my many questions from start to finish. I’ve already recommended the company to my friends Fantastic customer service.
We would use again. Very helpful
As usual everything was brilliantly set up for us.
Lucas was excellent and helped me with my request. A straightforward process
So helpful, friendly and personal - makes such a difference
I would just like to thank Edward who went out of his way once again to make our holiday magic
Stacey always provides an excellent service and rings a few days beforehand to make sure everything is OK. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Stacey and DialAFlight.
Consistently perfect service!
Have booked through Jerry for many years .. always excellent service
Dennis was excellent
Continuing efficient, friendly and professional service. Thank you.
I have recommended you to several people who have said how helpful you were and I feel the same. I always book my flights through you. You are polite and endlessly patient
It’s always perfect when I book with DialAFlight!
We arrived in New York on Black Friday, the day after Thanksgiving when the city goes into a retail frenzy.
With hindsight, it was probably not the best day to choose. However, as a professional cricketer, it's not easy to find time to get away for a holiday - we play Tests at home during the summer and head overseas for tours in the winter. Fortunately, I managed to fit in this short trip to New York in between the series against Pakistan and the current one against South Africa.
Neither my wife Alice nor I had been to the Big Apple before so it was a bit of an adventure for both of us. I travel to a lot of countries around the world but I rarely have the chance to do touristy things - usually the most I get to see is a cricket ground, the hotel and the airport.
Alice and I usually prefer to get away from it all at a rural spot somewhere for a little relaxation. As you can imagine, New York was an entirely different prospect. But as we had only four days in which to enjoy ourselves, we thought we would try something different.
We stayed at the Mandarin Oriental at the southern end of Central Park on Columbus Circle. The view from our room was jaw-dropping. It certainly had the 'wow' factor. After dumping our luggage, we set out to explore the city and quickly discovered how easy it is to get from one place to another, whether you want to walk, take the subway or flag down one of the city's famous yellow taxis.
Since this was only a short break, we had to plan our visit pretty carefully to make sure we saw all the places we wanted. First on our list was the Ground Zero memorial at the site of the World Trade Center, where the new Freedom Tower now stands. We didn't have time to visit the museum - the queue was massive - but we were impressed by the poignant memorial, which records the names of all the victims of the September 11 attacks. The memorial consists of a field of trees interrupted by the footprints of the Twin Towers which are filled with water.
Like most people, I can recall exactly what I was doing on 9/11. I was 16 at the time, and watched on TV the horrifying moments when the planes crashed into the towers. I was very shaken, so visiting the site was an incredibly moving experience. Alice and I didn't bring our seven-month old baby Elsie with us this time - we'll take her when she's old enough to appreciate it.
Having a few days without her meant we could take advantage of the New York nightlife. One evening we headed to Broadway to see the musical Chicago, and another night we went to see the New York Knicks lose to the Houston Rockets at Madison Square Garden. I don't claim to know a huge amount about basketball, but the atmosphere inside the stadium was electric.
We had planned to do a little shopping, but having landed on Black Friday, we quickly realised we had arrived at a challenging time for hitting the stores. Still, it was interesting to see New Yorkers rushing to snap up bargains in famous stores such as Saks, Bloomingdale's and Macy's.
One of the most exciting things for me was just standing in the heart of Times Square. It's a place you've seen in films so many times that you feel you've been there before.
Alice and I headed to New York with high expectations and the city more than lived up to them. And having a few days away from the cricket field meant I could eat whatever I wanted. One morning I had waffles and ice cream for breakfast just because I could. Delicious.
You often hear that New Yorkers can be rude and abrupt, but we didn't find that. At the basketball match, for example, we found everyone was very welcoming.
Playing cricket does take to you such wonderful places around the world. They do play cricket in New York - there are a lot of people from the Caribbean living and working in the city - so perhaps one day I might play there too. Like most things in the Big Apple, I'm sure it will be extraordinary and unforgettable.
