Belavia Reviews

"Such good value, airline with a personality and passionate staff"

Review

I booked these flights for ~£600 return London to Tel Aviv - business class. Transit Visa should be ordered in advance (I used Real Russia) and costs ~£100. Still great value, only slightly more than British Airways economy and so much nicer. I only found out at check-in that Belavia business class passengers get free Servisair lounge access at Gatwick airport and it is a superb lounge even with its own private TV room and satellite TV. 30Kg baggage allowance in business class. First plane was a 737-500, 2 owner (ex Xiamen) in very good condition if a bit loud (it is an old plane after all). I was checked through at Gatwick (55 minute connection at Minsk) and given row 1 on this flight. Now, row 1 means you can stretch your legs as much as you want and there's still loads of room in front. The seats were comfortable, as business class only had one other passenger I had the row to myself and was given a blanket and pillow on boarding should I wish to lie across all three seats (some planes have 2 seats per side in business class, this had 3). First example of old-fashioned service - everyone was given a boiled sweet as they boarded, and greeted by the stewardesses who were genuinely happy and enthusiastic (smiling and chatting to each other between people boarding, which was nice to see - they were enjoying their job). As soon as I sat down, I was offered a drink (they serve tea/coffee/orange/apple/tomato juice). Announcements in Belarusian and English. Meal served shortly after reaching maximum altitude (on both flights - yes, unlimited snacks in the complimentary lounge followed by two HUGE dinners). Both flights included chunky strips of smoked salmon, red caviar, salad with tomato and cucumber (and mayonnaise in pouch), potato wedges, broccoli, hot brown roll with onion in it, hot white roll with sesame seed on top, cured meats (LGW-MSQ had chunky large slice of ham and Belarusian salami, MSQ-TLV had black forest ham), pickled cucumber and dill, and huge chocolate muffin filled with Nutella. LGW-MSQ had large chicken breast coated in sesame seed and MSQ-TLV had large portion of chicken kiev. Food delicious, served on branded porcelain on a clean white tablecloth with stainless steel branded cutlery and white cloth napkin. All food served hot, and unusually for an airline meal I could actually taste it! Juices/tea/coffee available with meal and throughout flight. On MSQ-TLV (older 737-300, 6 owners and more shabby, seats with Continental Airways pattern on them) pilot gave regular announcements and in-air statistics in Belarusian and English. In-flight magazine kept me entertained, quite a few pages in English but photos in Belarusian bit (in articles on remote tribes I think) fascinating. Before I forget - they have a loyalty card (Belavia Leader) which I applied for online and which got delivered quickly from Belarus (I live in London) which is very genuine. From this journey alone I have enough points to fly from Minsk to St Petersburg (and London-Minsk economy is really cheap). Lastly, the main reason I love the airline is that the service felt personal and genuine - every other modern airline feels like the staff run off a script and have absolutely no enthusiasm or personality. Staff on Belavia were genuine people who chatted and giggled together when not serving but were very attentive when anyone needed service. The service was also personal, even in economy class from what I saw. It really felt like I was flying in the 80s before these airlines all became corporate and before cabin crew were silent and moody/solemn. Would gladly fly again, in fact will go to Russia for the first time with them soon. In a word, flying with them felt homely and I felt cosy!

Conclusion
Value for Money:Yes
Customer Service:Excellent
Cabin:Business Class
