Concluding Words About the Airline
Manang Air seems to be an okay airline but as there were few Manang Air reviews, their online reputation worsened because of one person’s negative comments and experience. I think that after the ceasing of their flights, they’re probably still safe to use and better in dealing with their passengers.
