The most recent Fly540 reviews by Mark West on that reviews website wrote: “Cabins look worn, but not dirty. There is always a complimentary beverage service (tea, coffee, water or type of soda) and a biscuit (more than you get on BA or many of the European legacy airlines, let alone low cost!). The in-flight magazine is a good read. Flights has always arrived pretty much on schedule and I have never had problems with baggage (damage or loss). An excellent little airline which performs well above it’s low-cost price tag. Fly540 unfortunately do not have any form of frequent flyer reward program.” Read the rest of these Fly540 reviews, here in this link.
