Andrew Potter flies EasyJet EZ8474.
The route: From London Gatwick to Geneva in Switzerland.
The plane: Airbus A320, the Toyota Corolla of commercial air travel.
Class: If I had any, I would be flying Swissair. On easyJet there's just one, economy.
Price: A client paid for this - a quick internet check reveals it cost $274, return.
On time? You could have set your watch to it - we were precisely one hour late taking off. EasyJet blames a delay in getting a wheelchair passenger off the previous flight. We make up time and arrive half an hour late.
My Seat: 14A - EasyJet have only recently introduced alocated seating which is a real treat. But it's a tight fit. Sliding my iPad into the seat pocket halves my legroom.
Fellow passengers: I'm amazed to see not one but two passengers wearing Top Gun-style leather flying jackets complete with woollen collars and US Navy patchwork. Talk to me Goose!
How full? Fully full.
Entertainment: I'm writing this to pass the time. Otherwise it's staring out the window or at the back of my eyelids. Inflight magazine has more dog ears than a Swiss petshop.
The service: Friendly and unobtrusive, but you get the feeling this isn't their only flight today.
Food and drink: Like the selection in a 3-star business hotel's minibar, average and expensive.
The toilets: Small, sparse, functional. And if you're making your air travel decisions based on the quality of the toilet there's something wrong with you.
Luggage: Carry-on only for me this time. A hold bag costs.
The airport experience: Parts of Gatwick feel like a nostalgic trip to a museum of 1970s Britain, but it's getting better. The North Terminal is now quite flash. I've printed my boarding card at home so sidestep the check-in desk jockeys.
Would I fly this again? EasyJet is Europe's Jetstar. Cheap and cheerful and great for short hops around the continent. It's far superior to its arch-rival RyanAir who offer a customer experience that borders on hostile.By Andrew Potter
