Pros: "Price is good"
Pros: "The crew"
Cons: "The kosher food"
Cons: "there was a problem with special assistance on the connection flight. Nobody was waiting at the end..."
Pros: "I was seated next to my fiancé. We were separated on Blue air."
Pros: "Everything was perfect"
Cons: "More drinks less food at night flight for short destination"
Cons: "Food, not in time."
Pros: "Efficient. It was a very short flight."
Cons: "Offer of Wi-Fi."
Pros: "Comfortable airplane, organized crew and fast boarding operation"
Cons: "I asked for a vegan meal when I ordered a ticket and did not get one. I needed to ask and explain myself and it was not so nice. At the end I got it, thanks to the attendant"
Pros: "Plan crew , pilots , services on plan and cleaning"
Cons: "Land crew , airport , and airline disorganized I wanted to complain about crew member , But she will not give her name or ID number, And when I snap a picture she calls the police , Her bag was inside her shirt and she will not revile"
Pros: "Everything was on-time, easy, and fairly quick."
Cons: "The legroom."
Pros: "- Crew service was pleasant"
Cons: "- Misinformed about luggage included in the ticket, had to pay extra money. - Flights delays"
Pros: "Excellent service, support and attention from hosts/hostesses"
Pros: "Although they were at the right size snd weight. I was skipped dinner."
Pros: "The employees were very helpful and friendly. Food was not worse than what one can expect of an airline (about as “good” as a US airline’s, which is not a high standard to beat). The plane seemed recent and clean."
Cons: "The major problem was the lack of detail on their luggage policy. I am sure they can show the text clearly warning me about the fees for bringing a piece of luggage per person, but I missed it. Therefore, they charged me $35 per person for their registered bag. That’s probably how they “beat” their competitors’ prices. If you include the fees in your calculation, this might still be a good option, but make sure that you read the fine print, or be prepared to pay as “extra” what many airlines offer as basic."
Pros: "Evrything was good"
Cons: "No entertainment on that flightes"
Pros: "Everything was fine, even above expected for low cost airline. Nice crew, free drinks."
Cons: "Food could be a bit better."
Pros: "We enjoy flying with Aegean, very good treatment for families with kids."
Pros: "Crew is very patient, and have a beautiful appearance. We arrived 1hr late, but an attendant was available to help us to the nxt gate. We only had 15mins."
Cons: "Both connecting flights between Heraklion & Athens where late. This one being 1hr late! When we finally did board, it was a mess! Couldn't hear any instructions, the people for the nxt flight from that gate where all standing in the way. In Athens an attendant did his best to get us to the connecting flight. 15mins was all we had. My travel partner had problems walking & had to try to run to the nxt terminal. An awful experience, especially for her!"
Pros: "I love flying Aegan - it is always comfortable and pleasant. Due to my own mistake I didn't order a kosher/vegetarian meal, which is why I rated the food "N/A". On flights this short there are no entertainment options which is fine I suppose :) overall, this is one of my favorite airlines to fly! Thanks!"
Cons: "too many fussy babies crying and screaming."
Cons: "about 50 minutes late"
Cons: "With Kayak I booked Tel Aviv to Malta with 1 hour stop in Athens. The first flight was delayed by an hour hence making me lose my second flight. Aegean then booked me on a flight to Catania (Italy) for a different connection to Malta. Only that this Aegean flight was also delayed by an hour making me miss the second connection. Eventually I arrived in Malta 15 hours later than scheduled. Aegean customer service reps were extremely unhelpful and made this 10 times more difficult. I missed a whole vacation day, amassed roaming telephone charges and on top of that missed a reservation for Dinner in the Sky Malta."
Cons: "Delay 1 hour and 20 minutes at departure"
Pros: "Great experience"
Cons: "They should work on their airport staff a little."
Cons: "it has nothing to do with aegean air but security at the flight was poor - we found out that by mistake my friend left a knife in his hand bag and it was not found untill we unpacked and saw it at home!!!"
Pros: "Wasn't expecting so much food for such a short journey, but it was delicious, and views from the plane were gorgeous."
Pros: "On time. Space. Great team."
Cons: "after boarding, we were stuck sitting in the plain for 2 hours because of a technical problem, and Aegean was trying to use the situation to sell us water! no water was given to us, also- no useful information about the status of the problem."
Pros: "Friendly staff."
Cons: "Warm soda."

Cons: "Food was minimal."
Pros: "every thing was ferfect"
Pros: "Quick and direct flight."
Cons: "There wasn't any food or snacks. The airport was a bit chaotic."
Pros: "crew was supportive. food was ok. Check in on line was good. We could choose our seats. We flew with Aegean several times already. they are a reliable company."
Cons: "The flight was late by almost an hour. On arrival we were transferred to the terminal by buses after having to carry our troll all the way down the stairs."
Pros: "Clean Elegant Polite"
Cons: "Only wish it was in a desent hour and not in the middle of the night"
Pros: "cleen quiet and beutifull crew"
Cons: "I would like if you call me and I tell you. 972-508935554"
Cons: "When I purchased the ticket the site stated one bag checked was includEd. But when we checked in we were told we had to pay an additional 35 euros per bag. We did not expect the additional expense."
Cons: "I was surprised (like many other) that the ticket did not include any baggage. The cost for the baggage at the counter was more than double of the cost on the web site."
Cons: "We were delayed almost 3 hours and we're not provided with the reason for the delay except for "technical difficulties" at airport"
Cons: "The lost and found office is not open 24 hours in Athens. And that is strange how can you claim something u lost if your flight doesn't fall within the 9 to 5 hours."
Cons: "at the return ther was a missunderatandig regarding the availibility at the flight"
Cons: "a little more leg room"
Cons: "meets expectations"
Cons: "Boarding process was not nice. Secondary check up is fine but explanation would be helpful and communication from airport crew was awful."
Pros: "The service and the smiles of the team. Very professional pilot."
Cons: "The food...very bad."
Pros: "Great crew. Great food."
Cons: "Seats were ok, could be better."
Pros: "777 & entertainment"
Pros: "The application for entertainment was good"
Cons: "Everything got delayed in an hour and a half, due to intense traffic. This is irresponsible, such things should be planned and taken into account!"
Pros: "The service was good, the food wasn't bad at all. They were able to accommodate my food preference, though I hadn't requested a vegetarian meal. The rest of the flight was pretty bad. The flight boarded and left one hour late. No communication from ground crew about that. Boarding was a madhouse."
Cons: "There were like 3 movies/shows to watch on a seat screen that you couldn't control anything. So outdated and old. If I had known, I would have made alternate arrangements. Seats were so small and uncomfortable. No width space and no frontal space when person in front reclined their seat. Horrible."
Cons: "Hi I ordered a flight at the Kayak site with a suitcase. And when I got to the talk they told me you had to pay for the $ 70 suitcase. When I bought the flight ticket on the site I paid for a suitcase but at the desk they did not see it and I bought to pay again"
Pros: "pleasant seats, friendly staff"
Cons: "security checking in airport"
Pros: "The crew was amazing, the plain was great, the food was tasty."
Pros: "Service was friendly"
Cons: "The LY security check took longer than usual and could be better organized. I waited 25 minutes in the line for online check in and then another 15 in the other. Why can’t people go directly from the online check in station to the screening and boarding area?"
Pros: "Elal is simply horrid. Worse than low cost companies and very expensive. The only thing I like is getter get off the plane and knowing I will do anything to fly with another company next time"
Cons: "Lousy experience all round. Too pissed off to provide detail"
Cons: "Food and entertainment"
Pros: "The chicken sandwich was good"
Cons: "More spacious seats, better arange the airoplane with three lines of two seats ..."
Pros: "crew always gives a feeling of getting home price was good"
Cons: "seems like an old airplane (quite consistent with previous flights :( that might be the reason for taking off about 90 later? - overhead light did not work ("yes we already know about it") - entertainment set did not work properly - food is very mediocre and the same (i don't care that much about it if other things worked well.)"
Cons: "There was no possibility to select seats during checkin, we had to receive new boarding passes at the boarding desk, we arrived early but were not seated together, as well as people around us, so we had to change our seats with neighbors."
Pros: "Comfortable seats, really good food, good service, great private entertainment with lots of options"
Cons: "There was chaos at boarding with seat assignments"
Pros: "On time. Food reasonable. Seats a bit cramped"
Cons: "Very easy Eli. Good service. No children nr me!!"
Cons: "The online check in was very inconvenient, the site was slow, the reservation couldn't be found, the seats couldn't be chosen. On the inbound flight I managed to check in after numerous tries, on the outbound, couldn't check in at all. The flight was delayed for an hour while we were already in our seats. The staff was unorganized and inattentive."
Pros: "New plane with a great entertainment selection but I think the leg room is becoming less with each new plane. Musical seats —if you’ve flown ElAl before you know what I mean—was annoying. Flight crew seemed to disappear for a while. No response to the call button for over 5 minutes so I walked to the back of the plane where all flight crew seemed to be congregating to get a glass of water. When crew was around, they were very pleasant ."
Cons: "Everything.. Flight canceled, no explanation what so ever. In hk costume service they took my gift of bought from Auckland duty free since I needed to exit in hk because flight canceled. N"
Cons: "Lost my baggage lock and lost my shoes after searching through my bag"
Pros: "the crew is very nice"
Cons: "On this flight the seats are a bit narrower and closer together. It did not have the feel of the other fights we have taken in business class el al."
Pros: "The people the service best airline"
Pros: "The crew was great! Super nice and helpful"
Cons: "Almost 12 hour flight with 2 hour delay. Plane interior was outdated. Not one TV monitor worked, a total disgrace. Should have given bottled water to everyone while we had a two hour delay. Did get served fluids in 4 ounce cups no ice. Felt like I went on easy jet but had to pay $1300. No leg room, when the guy in front leaned back ,his chair was touching my knees and I am only 5'4."
Cons: "I got a confirmation that my ticket is booked and yet when i arrived to the airport they have told me that im not! After i have got a confirmation from you that i did! You stold my time and hopefully you didn't touch my money! I want answers to the situation"
Pros: "I don't know where to start. Airplane is from the 70's. Still has ashtrays. The seats are so tight together. Extremely uncomfortable. No entertainment systems at all. One old tv in the middle playing one movie. No wifi. I'm dreading my return flight."
Cons: "We got to our destination safely. Flight attendents were okay"
Pros: "The confidence of the pilot and how he transmitted he will control the bumping due to bed weather"
Cons: "Small room leg between chairs - when the chair before me reclined back no place to breath ... The entertainment system was old and did not work well - when asking to see a film - you catch another one or the middle of it and the screen pixelised The taste of hot meal"
Pros: "Very responsive crew to individual needs; courteous, well-mannered crew."
Cons: "unavoidable wait on air plane before take-off due to nasty weather, insufficient space in economy class seat seats"
Pros: "The crew was really nice and helpful"
Cons: "It is a night flight. There is no reason for the lights to be turned off only 4.5 hours after departure, and turned back on after 3.5 hours. It is really awful when you are traveling with kids."
Cons: "A day before I realized it was El Al Up (low cost) so I had to pay for 2 suitcase extra 200 $! And couldn't seat near my partner. The data was presented in a misleading manner which was very diaspointing ..."
Pros: "Wifi on the plane. Great crew."
Pros: "Comfortable seat however it didn't recline as it was in front of emergency exit row"
Cons: "Above, plus my light was outso I couldn't read and I had brought books and work to do! Also my TV screen wasn't functionalso I also couldn't watch anything g AND my headset, only one earlier e worked!!"
Cons: "boarding in newark was chaotic, took forever and plane was delayed for an hour. Food was so so. Iam allergic and it seems there were lentils in the rice which i couldnt eat, also possibility of nuts in the pastry served. Nut allergies are quite widespread. It would be nice to have had the ingedients to the various foods. Stewardesses had attitudes if they were bothered in between meals. seats very cramped, had no room to move."
Cons: "Sitting seems intentionally bad (separating families) unless you pay extra Food is inedible Crew being sardonic of local latency when we all remember how ELAL crew used to sit idle on track to earn a couple more bucks"
Pros: "That it was a non stop flight."
Cons: "A. the airplane was the oldest airplane I've been on. The seats were so uncomfortable, I thought my butt would crack open after sitting on it for 10 hours. The TVs were worse qualities than what we had 50 years ago. There was minimal seat room for arms and legs. I'm not just bitchin, but I never paid that much for a flight, yet, it was the worst experience ever. (Just to give context, I've flown to Israel with Azerbaijan, Royal Jordanian, Air France and Turkish Airlines and ALL of them were exponentially more enjoyable). B. The flight attendants were literally the ruddest ones I've met. I clicked the help light on my seat like 5 times throughout the flight for water but they never came. I couldn't get up because an old woman was sitting next to me and she was sleeping. C. The flight was delayed which was a huge inconvenience for me because I bought this flight specifically because of its departure time. Overall, my advice is to stay away from this airline because it will probably be your worst flying experience ever"
Pros: "The flight was delayed for over an hour with no reasons or apologies given."
Cons: "Service was lousy"
Cons: "The security is ridiculous. They discriminate all non Jewish passengers and have no respect to people that live in Israel."
Pros: "Never flying with those amateurs again!"
Cons: "Too long security Very crowded"
Cons: "You don't offer food for vegan people!"
Cons: "The boarding time kept on delaying all the time."
Cons: "delay of 2 hours change the food: it is the 3 rd time that I fly with El Al this year, and always the same choice between bolonaise and chicken-rice : no surprise!"
Pros: "It was the first time that even for the cup of coffee you pay. The next step is obviously that you pay also the cup of water?"
Pros: "Nice comfortable temperature newspaper Pita and Humous"
Pros: "exit from the airplane when the flight was over was fast."
Cons: "night flight: no blankets, no pillows for all the passengers chairs reclining very small. chairs are really old and uncomfortable food / dinner: will feed it to my dog. entertainment equipment: stuck somewhere about 30-40 years ago. the oldest I ever saw, headset don't work in one side, 90% of the channels has nothing on them: no music, no movie, nothing."
Cons: "The service was rhe the worst part of the flight"
flightcdelay ruined the expirence
Could not check on on line for 1 out of 3 passengers
I was not boarded because i was positive on my pcr test
The one thing I must say is that the flight wasn't full at all, and in this case, I'm really unsure why they wouldn't sit people farther from each other.
Pros: "It was enough fast"
Cons: "Too much money for nothing service."
Pros: "Nothing. Horrible experience overall, but what you pay is what you get."
Cons: "Pretty much everything..."
Pros: "It's the cheapest you can get"
Cons: "They split me and my wife on porpuse to force me to buy the option to choose my seating. The leg space is tiny and the chairs won't recline so it's super uncomfortable. Flight times are shitty. Te leave early in the morning so you can barely get some sleep at night. Nor on the plane. They don't any serve food or even water and let you dry up. You can buy overpriced food and beverage onboard. My purchase from the duty free was stolen and they didn't help me handle the problem. Awful experience."
Pros: "Budget friendliness"
Pros: "I was at the gate. Before the door to enter the airplane. The Hungarian crew wasn’t telling me that they are closing the gate or going to close it. They completely ignore me and let me stand there and at the end I see the door close in front of me, 2 meter from me and they told me I mised flight."
Cons: "I lost my money and I had to buy new flight with other company. Wizzair crew at budapest was very rude and didn’t take responsibility for the mistake they did. They could just say they are closing the door but nobody did. 2 meters from me and after I passed all security they ignored me completely."
Pros: "The cheap fares"
Cons: "Airplane was filthy, needed a thorough cleaning. More padding on the seat."
Pros: "We landed"
Cons: "Customer service, communication between check in and boarding agents, clear rules. On time departure as opposed to 60 minute delay on the runway"
Pros: "The seat not so comfortable but good"
Cons: "Wiz air seems to trick you constantly to get more money out if things they hide from you.. online check-in required.. letting you in work a trolley and then charge you at the gate.. pee service overall.. beware!!"
Cons: "Comfort of the plane. So freaking uncomfortable. Seats didn’t even recline back."
Pros: "Price of ticket"
Cons: "Seats are terrible."
Pros: "Clean aircraft with good on board staff. Flight departed on time and arrived early. Overall they are good value for a low cost carrier."
Cons: "Wizz are a bit disorganised at bag check in, disorganised with overhead storage. Don't like the random seat assignment used if you don't want to pay the high price for assigned seats."
Pros: "All and all great value for the money"
Cons: "1. The check in was delayed and very chaotic. 2. The landing was horrible 3. The plane was not comfortable ."
Pros: "We got to our destination."
Cons: "There was a problem with their website that was out of our control, that didn’t allow us to print boarding passes and we were charged at the airport even though we had proof we tried and were not able through no fault of our own"
Pros: "Late over two hours due to late arrival of the plane and even so they board us for nothing cauosng us to wait withot bathroom sitta etc."
Cons: "Had to stand in the sun for about 30 mins waiting to board. Had to buy a bottle of water for £2.5 why can’t they just pour a glass of water or even sell at a reasonable price."
Pros: "The Crew was excellent"
Cons: "The boarding process was terrible, took a long time - few and not enough boarding and suitcases counters, which made people wait for a long time and even let others to pass them in line because their flight was earlier. due to this our flight was late by 45 minutes. the food was too expensive."
Pros: "So many crying children"
Pros: "The staff - friendly, polite,, helpful and a nice uniform! No silly uncomfortable and unsuitable as in some airlines. Reasonably clean. Good price for a glass of wine and pac of dry fruit."
Cons: "Unable to understand tanoi messages - mumbling & too fast. Could not make out most of what staff said including why there was an hour's delay and safety procedures. If i were to bring an oversized and too heavy handluggage on board no doubt I wouldn't get away with it ! However the number of large and heavy bags passengers brought on board last night was ridiculous . It was a real struggle for people to find lockers for.their bags. Some people had quite a few. Delays take off and creates unnecessary chaos. Couldn't understand why I had to pay to check in online, obviously missed that when bookrd. Although I recall reading that it will cost if you check in the airport- so most likely my error. No facility or button to print boarding pass once checked in. No contact us button - I would like to change seat I booked for return but cannot see how to do this on line."
Pros: "Flight was on schedule"
Cons: "No free drinking water"
Pros: "Absolutely nothing"
Cons: "I asked upon check in 2 times about my backpack, the representative said its ok 100% to take it on board. At the gate they suddenly say i need to pay now , left me no choice but to pay 60(!) poumd from a small bag!!! The gate representative, Rose is her name, seemed like just a sales person, she didnt even care what i said, and said “ its your fault and tour responsibility “. “Please pay or you wont be able to board” she said. Yes, like a bully, demanded for money, or else.... Worst service i had ever experienced in my 16 years of traveling."
Cons: "the fact the crew arrived to the gate after the planned boarding time causing us to stand too long on the stairways. check in via the app (using iphone 6) was a failure. i was certain i booked with extra luggage - at the check in i was told i didn't. from the reservation confirmation it is not clear what i paid for & there are no means to contact you - email, on line chat - you know the regular things every company today use to proivde customer services which is not only "give us you money". too bad this is WIZZ Air"
Cons: "Terrible service and the fact that you can't check in st the airport without paying is absurd. Absolutely terrible. Implant policy"
Pros: "nice servers"
Cons: "no kosher food for free"
Pros: "cheap, on time"
Cons: "no reclining chairs, no water free"
Pros: "Nice crew"
Cons: "My bag was 6cm too big, so they charged me at the airport. After checking their website, the airport overcharged me, and the gestapo who was checking had less customer service manners than my old French teacher, she was a...!"
Pros: "I was lucky to be seated next to the emergency door so I had a very comfortable seat. Also, the crew was very attentive."
Cons: "The flight departed around half an hour late."
Cons: "As Usual always late, left us sitting in a bus on the tarmac for ages in30 deg heat. awful. will never use again"
Cons: "i would seem that evey Wiss-Air Flight on the route we were on is always late, stuck on the tarmac in a bus in 30degs with NO aircon is not on."
Cons: "Hidden fees"
Pros: "Flight attendance service was great and smiley"
Cons: "Nothing much"
Pros: "Actual in-air flying experience was smooth."
Cons: "Due to technical issue with plane, passengers were delayed about 15-20 minutes on the tarmac in a crowded, hot shuttle bus with ineffective air conditioning and almost no fresh air coming in."

Pros: "Friendly staff members"
Cons: "They didn't have blanket and it was very cold.."
Cons: "I didn't eat No entertainment"
Pros: "On time."
Cons: "Nothing much."
Pros: "only good for short flights....the price.."
Cons: "not comfortable seats"
Cons: "Boarding and getting off the plane via bus"
Cons: "we didn't get food at all. i purchased a cabin baggage for 40 dollar, and when i went to the check in i paid another 110 euro for checked in baggage although i had only one baggage!!!"
Pros: "The don't say the truth"
This is a low cost flight, so for that all was ok.
Flight 90 minutes late. No communication from Ryan Air about this.
I didn't sit together with my daughter, and instead of trying to see if we could switch seats after boarding, the flight attendant said, "that's what you get when you buy low cost tickets.". I thought that was funny, a bit unprofessional :)
Flight was uneventful, boarding was late and should have started earlier
Good value for money. Chairs are very basic, won’t recline. Other than that everything ok.
food and entertainment are not relevant for this flight
The lady at the check in desk was brutal. I explained her that I'm coming 2 com connection flights and I did not know that I have do to ht th the myself. She insisted and had me pa id the 50€
there was a delay for over 3 hours due to fog this is toatly acceptable, beacause of flight safety but since the fog was not unknown why we were boarded and than had to wait on plane without option to go back to the terminal the boarding was on foot so there was cnot supposed to be a big problem to get back and than reboard
And everything was right on time. They could offer a glass of water.
They did not Tool uș to TLV as We hâd to do Corona test
Very strange boarding, long wait on foot after the gate.
more than 1 hour delay for a technical problem found after boarding ended.
The announcements in Bologna are very bad. We almost missed our flight. But the ground crew was very nice and helpful!
The manager of the flight didn’t allow me to go on the flight because I was late in just one minute!!!! She preferred to take off my baggage instead of giving me to fly home. I have hearing device and I didn’t hear the call. I paid extra priority and for extra baggage and I want my money back!! Thank you
Pros: "Flight left on time and left early"
Cons: "Endless sales in cabin of duty free items"
Pros: "We (a family of 5) were late for 5 minutes (literally) to the boarding ... Our flight was at 3.45 PM and were at the gate at 3.20 PM ... We were held up at the Passport Control by the Polish Border Guards at the Passport Control - their computer was down ... My wife cried, my kids cried and asked to be let in on the plane ... Nobody cared to help us ..."
Cons: "for RyanAir to be more human and humane and caring ..."
Cons: "Going on time without delay, more staff to avoid long lines"
Pros: "the leg room was fine"
Cons: "the getting to the airplane and from the airplane after landing can be better by using more busses"
Cons: "50euro check in fee was awesome"
Pros: "On time and well maintained"
Cons: "Air conditioning was too weak."
Pros: "The desire to keep up with the schedule. impressive."
Cons: "Memmingen Airport does not call "Priority" card holders at the beginning of boarding passengers."
Cons: "Improve comfort in meetings and more space .."
Pros: "The crow was very nice the flight was good"
Pros: "On time - good crew -"
Cons: "Noisy plane (737 ) and noisy group of passengers on adjacent rows pilot and crew announcements downed out. seat allocation charges are a ripoff - makes the total price unrecognisable to the advertised price"
Pros: "Direct flight"
Cons: "Our suitcase were lost"
Pros: "Speedy check in at chaotic Crete airport Paying extra for priority boarding and taking carry on bags inside the cabin was worth it"
Cons: "Pay 68 euros for 5 kg excess luggage"
Cons: "I came to the airport on 17:30 but The Checkin counter were open too late, after 1800. There was only 1 staff member in the counter. The lines were long and crouded . After we finished our check in and sent the luggage we went to the gate. There they realized that some of the printed bourding passes are not o k. The attendant in the counter did not checked it and sent us to the gate. We had to go back to the counter but the flight was closed already. We called the staff and after all we had to pay 100 euro to the counter to print the correct bourding passes and then to rush to the aircraft. If Ryan air put enough staff in the counters it wouldn’t happen. We almost miss the flight and it caused us a big inconvenous."
Pros: "That the place reached safetly to its destination"
Cons: "Rome Line to checkin started at the entrance of the airport with no Ground staff attention or clear line marked people were fighting and cutting each other . Check in process approved our luggage for hand cary as we paid for it in advance. In the gate they suddenly decided the luggage was 1 cm larger then agreed, refused to bring a measurement tape and charged us 50 Euro in addition to send the luggae in the plane rather than hand carry. Need less to say that in the flight to Rome our luggage was approved for hand carry so clearly Rome staff were into making money.. Planes were late to take off and 1 hour late to land (that from a total of a 3 hour flight ) although not announced . In summary ground staff experience was awaful and made us decide to not fly with Ryanair air again"
Pros: "It arrived to its destination."
Cons: "Extremely long lines from start to end (bag drop off, security, passports, line to boarding etc), plenty of long walks from one line to the other. Everything cost extra charges, we had to add a non négligeable amount, in order to be seated with the kids, to have our boarding pass printed. A tiny bottle of water cost 3€. No entertainment whatsoever. Seats are uncomfortable."
Pros: "Price - That is All"
Cons: "Delay, Checking, Plane is Old and Seats do not Recline, Children Screamming, etc"
Pros: "Absolute nothing!"
Cons: "An hour delay for take off, we were trapped in the plane"
Cons: "We got the feeling that the price is low but the company will do all it takes to FAIL the customer and make him pay more. For example, the customer must check in online. if not done properly the cost is about 100 euro more, AND the online check in procedure is not working that well, you need to press buttons several times in order for it to work (and I have a good phone), and if you give up in the middle it will cost you. More on that we did a mistake and did not purchase luggage for the way back, when we went to the desk to buy it (after standing more than 2 hours in the check in), we were told to pay 40 euros, where the price is 23 if paid online. we asked to talk to a manager and get the regular price for the suitcase, the cashier said "no problem i can call him, but then you will miss the flight..." and in the meantime there were still lots of people in the check in line... The service is very slow and not pleasant, and the crew always give you the feeling you are not ok. I understand the price is low and this is a lo cost flight, but this should not happen no matter what is the price."
Pros: "Arrive 5 minutes earlier"
Cons: "The boarding was a mess. We had to wait in the bus for about 40 minutes because the plane was not ready yet. The landing was rough. But I guess it’s okay because it’s very cheap."
Cons: "we had delayed for 2 hours"
Pros: "Price. Timetable"
Cons: "Seats. The fact they put everyone in a deferent row"
Pros: "The landing"
Cons: "All, my wife needs a glass of water to take a pill and she was refused."
Pros: "Literally nothing"
Cons: "Delays and lack of clarity and updating"
Pros: "price, schedule, staff"
Cons: "the inconsistent carry-on bag policy which changed from the time of ticket purchase and forced us to purchase a 'premium' add-on to our ticket in order to be able to take our trollys on board. not professional."
Pros: "I can't think of a single good thing in that experience"
Cons: "Ryanair acted like a dust Stucker of money. Not only on the way forward they forbidded only flights from Israel (!) to bring any hand luggage at all without purchasing the priority boarding, and people were allowed with a small hand bag only (since the priority tickets finished) , but on the way backwards, after the entire airplane bought the priority ticket, the crew of ryanair acted in such a discriminating way and banned people that exceeded the bag check with less than 2 cm! It seems like the crew were determined to collect at many 50euro fines as possible from the passenger because they insisted very impolitly and brutally to measure each luggage from all possible sides, and even the luggage that fitted, they found excuses to fail them. I've rarely experienced such humiliating vision, especially due to the fact that everyone were forced to purchase the extra priority boarding and you'd expect the company to try and keep the customers, not drive them away. I can just say that with all the fines and extra payments requested by them, the total price of the flight was 100euro more expensive than the price of El AL or alitalia, same timing and with a meal and big suitcase included. All this, without mentioning the bad attitude of the crew and the extreme uncomfortability of the chairs (also purchased, obviously). To summarize, this was a very bad choice, with I will not repeat again."
Cons: "uncomfortable, nickel and dime you, charged us for a bad thay was within regulation"
Pros: "There is a lady at the gate before we board the flight from rome (FCO) to tel aviv who is particularly nasty. She scrutinized and had every single person on line put their bag to be measured. She even did that with small back packs!!! Unfortunately for HER nobody had to pay extra for luggage!!! It is really the attitude. i paid a lot of money for my flight as much as a regular fligh neary $400 and yet I was still NOT allowed to take luggage. Its ridiculous!!! Had I booked with a regular airline, I would have paid similar fees and have a bag to put on the plane . Its time that Ryan air stop taking advantage of people and allow some luggage just like everyone else does. It doesn't have to be 50 lb but it can be a few pounds!!!"
Pros: "the cost"
Cons: "Boarding was late in 30 min."
Pros: "Everything was well organized and worked as expected. Good ROI"
Cons: "Seats has fixed configuration (but it become an advantage when you're eating and working since front passenger can't make you troubles:-)"
It became a standard of this company to delay it's scheduled flights by hours! One to two days in advance, a notice of one hour delay is issued, then - at the airport, another 2 to 3 hours are occurring, at our outbound as well on our incoming flights. Be advised that this is to be expected. Furthermore - do not expect any transparency or explanation or just pure information from the company's reps on location, nor any other compensation or just a coupon for a snack or drink. It's probably just not part of the company's relation with it's clients.
Pros: "Lousy service"
Cons: "Free light drinks"
Pros: "New aircraft, had a VOD service in your own device, also optional paid WiFi. We were offered water during the flight. The price was good and everything went smooth."
Cons: "Security in PRG airport is done at the gate - after the duty free shops, so there's no way to go back. No toilet or water fountain at the gate area after security - only a vending machine is available and benches. You can bring liquids bought in the duty free shops only if you ask at the cashier to get it packed in a special bag. That's probably not the airlines fault, but it is something to note when departing from PRG. The check in process is also very slow, that is due to Israeli security questioning, the line gets all around the terminal."
Cons: "It was a terrible flight in most of the citiries"
Pros: "The crew was amazing and flight was comfortable. Leg room fine. They turned off lights so we could sleep."
Cons: "Seats could use a bit more padding."
Cons: "Flight was delayed more than 2 hours."
Cons: "Arkia changed there flight hour and no one updated me. I almost missed the flight. It was messed"
Pros: "The crew was nice It was ok for a short flight"
Cons: "There was a big delay and the airport boards weren’t updated The plan is small"
Cons: "There was a delay in flying The service was terrible And the airplane is old and uncomfortable. The flight attendants did not relate and really gave the feeling unpleasant"

Its a fraud - we paid for regular Arkia flight and ended up with low low low service !!!!!"
Pros: "Good price, nice crew, on time. Pay less? Don't expect much."
Cons: "Very old plan, small seats, poor website (manage your trip)"
Pros: "CHECK IN"
Cons: "NOT COMFORTABLE SITS"
Cons: "מושב בו ישבתי היה גרוע כיסאות בשורה 14. מה זה הדבר הזה כסא ללא יכולת כיוון"
Cons: "I was hospitalized and had to change the travel dates. Arkia refused to change my travel dates even though it was 2 weeks before the initial flight."
Pros: "the mail about the schedule Update prevents wasted time in the airport If you had sent an e-mail on the second delay we would have stay at the hotel and not falling asleep on the carpets in a cold, closed airport."
Cons: "There was another delay after the timing update, it would be nice if you could update it again. A night out at a cold airport , all the shops closed is really unpleasant. In the plane there were not enough blankets for all three of us! and it was very cold all the flight. When we turned to the staff they told us they were sorry and the blankets run out ... They could not find us even one blanket we could share..."
Pros: "The mail about the delay"
Cons: "3 hours delay Leaking AC Delay on arrival-waiting on ground for available spot in airport and finally being transferred via busse which took another 20 min. Very loud and annoying noise during flight (and I had my share of flights...)"
Cons: "Food had to be specially requested and was not given automatically as customary. So I almost missed the meal."
Cons: "We (me, one pregnant wife and two kids) had to wait 2:40h in line for check-in in spite we arrived 3 hours prior to departure to the airport. There was no way to do the check-in online. Security have asked everyone to open their suitcases before depositing them in the check-in. After check-in we had to run through the airport to the gate as check-in completed only 20 minutes before departure. Because of the line and the lack of online check-in we got lousy seats at the end of the plane. The flight itself was lousy as well. It was a night flight but there was light for most of the flight and noise due to the insistency on serving cold sandwiches. After landing we had to wait more than an hour to get the luggage. One of the worst flights ever!"
Pros: "The crew was great . I was seated on Exit seat . long legs ."
Cons: "to noisy . especially all the selling of duty free goods ."
Pros: "Efficient, quick check-in, quick boarding. This 50-minute flight will save you 4 hours of driving at least!"
Pros: "The crew were very nice and helpful. The airplane was clean."
Cons: "There's no entertainment in spite the flight duration was more than 4 hours. The food was cold sandwiches in stale buns. Boarding was not well organized and was done in busses. Flight was 15 minutes delayed."
Cons: "Flight was delayed, and above all the luggage was not board on the plane. This was however said to us after the plane was boarded and on the way up!!! That is when we also heard we are landing in Rhodos on the way to Tel Aviv to refuel the plane because of a technical thing which they knew even before the flight. So the flight was few hours longer. The plane was old and with this "error" you get to pray you ll even reach your destination. . Food? No good on the flight, only water to drink. You can buy something from the free shop while flying!!! Afterwards we had to wait for our luggage for 6 days being told it is gonna be delivered to us every day. Unless you have nerves to spare and you wanna argue a lot, and I mean A LOT, do not fly with this company!"
Pros: "The crew was nice"
Cons: "Food really bad. Delayed. Old plain."
Pros: "The stuff were nice after we left..."
Cons: "We ordered the flight 3 months ago. A week before the flight, after all of our plans were booked, we received email about 2 hours delay! When we arrived to the airport, we discovered that the flight is operated by other company (Travel Service) and when we arrived to the boarding gate, we discovered that there is another delay because the airplane arrived late! Another 60 minutes delay, we landed around 23:00,and basically - it ruined the first days of our trip, since we made plans according to 19:30 landing !"
Cons: "I got to the airport and I was stranded because there was no such flight please credit my account immediately. I also called several times before hand to confirm my flight and was sent emails with the same ticket information. And incredibly rude customer service. I also had to re-purchase a new ticket from another airlines, which I also believe in good faith you should pay, to make up for the incredible inconvenience you put me through."
Cons: "Check up security was extremely bais...... and un human with way they did their security checks. Unacceptable and time consuming. My personal belongs that was suppose to come with my hand loggage they obligated me to go in my check in loggage. The danger to that is that third parties could touch my belongings or even break carting the bag to one side to another.."

Cons: "The fact that there was no online checkin :/"
Pros: "Great customer service. They changed our flight without any questions. Smooth flight."
Pros: "The crew was very nice."
