Such poor organisation. Tried to phone bus to say we'd arrived and were 17th in phone queue. Arrived at helipad and such poor organisation. No oneknew what was going on. Then on helicopter windows were held shut with sellotape!! Feel lucky to have made it out alive!!! Avoid! People were more interested in charging people for being late. No one wore a uniform so it was impossible to know who worked there. When we landed the coach driver had to let us off the helicopter as no staff about. An experience we were looking forward to was not what we expected on the day!!!

Why do you feel it was poor organization? Everyone knows their job quite well, as for the windows of helicopter being shut it is WINTER and you are not the only passenger on the flight. Everyone wears uniforms under their winter jackets. Your statement of making out alive is definitely in very POOR TASTE.
