    Contary to an article in the Weekender newspaper today ,my wife and I flew to Perth from Albany and return last weekend and found the service excellent and on exact time on both occasions. As pensioners it is too far for us to drive to Perth and back to Albany over 2 days. Thank you for the service,much appreciated. John & Lorna Dowsett. Albany.
