Simple and comfortable flight

What was served?

I chose the Cookie Time Butterscotch cookie and a plain water. There are other beverages available too.

My sister had the cassava chips.
Sweets were given to each passenger, which was really thoughtful.


The flight was comfortable and the flight attendants were friendly and nice.

There were some students on board the plane with us and were curious about the mountains that our plane flew past, so the flight attendants actually introduced the mountain named Mount Aspiring to them. We were lucky to get the short introduction on this.

I would say that even though it was a short flight, the scenic view outside the window was breathtaking.
