Flight Review: Air Arabia - Sharjah UAE to Tbilisi Georgia

Flight Review: Air Arabia - Sharjah UAE to Tbilisi Georgia

Here we go again!

Another Flight Review

I am back again for another flight review.  My recent trip to Tbilisi Georgia was superb that I'm so excited to write a flight review with the airline that I recently fly with.

I am talking about Air Arabia, their global hub is situated at  Sharjah International Airport, located on the third emirate itself, Sharjah in the United Arab Emirates.

Second Time Flying With Them

This is my second time to fly with them. First was 2 years ago, going to Yerevan, Armenia, and for the second time, I opt to choose to fly with them again. As they have reasonable airfare offer.

The Aircraft; Airbus A320

The aircraft that we flew was an Airbus A320. This is my all time favorite aircraft among the fleet of the A320 operator. Air Arabia's current fleet consists of 52 new Airbus A320 and 1 A321 aircraft. I am looking forward to flying with there new a321 neo. At the moment, they are currently operating two aircraft types.

Waiting Time

I reached the airport around 5 in the morning as I travel from Abu Dhabi. And the shuttle service timing was 3 AM. My flight was 8 AM. So time management is needed. I still have plenty of time. After checking in and passing thru the immigration. I had the chance to sip some caffeine while having a face-time with my Aunt in the Philippines. Ahhh. Now this vacay 101 😉

Selfie As Always

I always take a selfie before going inside the aircraft. For those people who frequently travel, they really don't mind it. But I am always fascinated with these giant steel bird.

Up, Up Away!

Anyways, without further ado, here is my flight review of Airbus A320 of Air Arabia.

Mobile check-in is open 24 hours before the scheduled flight, so I was able to choose my own seat. Of course, My favorite choice of seat is near the wing of the aircraft. My seat is 22F. There were few travelers at the moment.

Pick And Drop

A320 baby!

What To Expect Inside?

So what to expect inside the aircraft?... Hmm...

No IFE, But...

Well, there is no in-flight entertainment apart from the shared screen monitor located at the middle of the aisle. The in-flight magazine is available wherein you can buy some duty-free stuff, snacks and hot meals. Make sure to carry along your tablet or phone to keep you entertained during the duration of the flight. And switch it to airplane mode.

Service During The Flight

The duration of the flight was 3 hours and 15 mins.
During the flight, cabin crews are offering food and beverages. So you have the option to purchase snacks and/or ready pack meals. Payment is either by local currency or debit/credit cards. You can also pre-order your meals or snacks online.

Buttered chicken is delicious

What's More?

The lavatory is pretty clean. Nothing much to find anything here apart from the hand sanitizer and tissues. The lavatory is pretty small compared to the lavatory of Boeing 777-300 from Etihad. And as always. No smoking is allowed in the lavatory.

A Bit Warm

I find it a bit warm inside the aircraft especially when we are near the aerospace of Georgia.
The same experience that I had when I travel to Armenia.

No Amenities

No amenities where provided, maybe (I guess) this was just a short flight. But it would be better if they will provide at least a refreshing towel or a face spray instead.

Customer Service

The cabin crews are very friendly. My previous trip with them to Armenia, surprisingly, there was a Filipino cabin crew. And I was expecting another Filipino cabin crew. But none. Anyways, the cabin crew was friendly and accommodating. They ensure that we are comfortable during the flight and they cater to our needs.

I never encounter any turbulence during the flight except my previous flight with Etihad traveling to the Philippines.

Seating Pitch

So far this the most spacious economy cabin seat pitch (measured from the same point on one seat to the same point on the seat in front). Legroom-wise, the Economy pitch of 76 cm is average, though of course what that means for you depends on how tall you are. I really don't mind it as I am 160 cm. It's just right.

Rate wise. 

I would definitely rate them 8 out of 10.
The only missing part? Well if they have an IFE per cabin seat and a free amenity kit. It would be great! Friendly cabin crews and a nonturbulence experience with them.
