"Having travelled severally since 1991 on London/Lagos route I want to start by stating the obvious apprehension I had even booking this flight. This was based on my last experience with Arik Air several years ago.
"It took me two weeks of getting to the point of payment while booking and then I would close the transaction. I eventually summoned up courage to book and pay. From the point of confirmation of the ticket everything seemed okay but I was somehow still expecting something to pop out of the blues and confirm the doubt that was lurking somewhere in a part of my heart..."

How the apostle and wife were treated

Apostle Kolawole shared how the staff treated him and his wife. He admitted he expected a rowdy scene at the check-in desk, but the reverse was the case.

"The staff that included Nigerians were courteous, polite and jovial. It was over in about 10 minutes and the journey was confirmed. Boarding was quick, smooth and excellently organised.
"The aircraft was a Boeing 787 and it was a great aircraft. The air host and hostesses were extremely friendly and helpful..."

Apostle Kolawole said he was highly impressed with the staff's general conduct and commended Air Peace for the various meals they were served.

While also hailing the airline for its cheaper airfare, he praised Nigerian passengers for being orderly.

"I would not fail to mention the passengers who were impeccable in their behaviour. They made Nigeria proud by queuing up and following instructions. I saw a full set of posh people and I was proud to be a Nigerian. On the plane I saw people following instructions and helping one another. I want to plead with other Nigerians to maintain this level of support for our own."
