Cons: "We will never fly Air France, Transavia or Dutch airlines again. Terrible planes for Air France and terrible checking in and connecting flights for transavia and Dutch airlines"

Cons: "they could offer at least water “on the house”"
Pros: "Nice crew and pilots! Good food and beverage selection"
Cons: "No wifi. Luggage went to Detroit instead of Amsterdam. Was delivered 3 days later to the house I was visiting in sevilla Spain"

Cons: "Physically stood in the sun on the tarmac for half an hour in Marrakech waiting to board the plane. Seating is so compact it’s physically impossible for me to fit, I’m 6’3” then it took an hour forty five minutes to get our checked luggage in Lisbon. Everyone was furious. No explanation from the airport or airline. We missed our hotel shuttle, missed our hotel checkin. Just terrible."
Pros: "Inexpensive fares are worth something. Where else can you fly half way across the EU for 150 euro? The crew was cheerful and helpful. Website, phone app and email reminders are great."
Cons: "You do pay alacarte for everything. And service suffers in the name of low price. Checked bags, drinks and food. Be prepared to walk or stand everywhere, baggage check-in at Orly is in the basement and the last areas 132. The gates are the last gates in the south terminal. And when you get to the gate boarding is done enmasss so you wait in line. But the fares are cheap."

Pros: "Plane, fight time, boarding speed, efficiency all excellent"
Cons: "Departure was suddenly changed from 4 to 7 without clear announcement. On the Norwegian terminal nor on the departure boards nothing was indicated nor had anybody bothered to leave a note or sign on the Norwegian Terminal 4. I discovered at the last minute as I hearD a “last boarding call” announcement in the Knick of time"
Cons: "Too many delays, airplane was cold"

Cons: "the lack of food"
Pros: "We liked nothing"
Cons: "Super budget airlines. Nickel and dime you for everything including water on a 5 hour flight.

All the magazine says they have charging ports-they don’t and the WiFi is spotty at best.."

Check in leaving JFK was pretty long and not so smooth but all went well! Intertainment was fine and seats comfortable!"
Cons: "Seat comfort on flight."
Pros: "There were TVs"
Cons: "The process to check in in nyc was unbelievably disorganized, inefficient, and superfluous. The planes were consistently late. thw staff was rude."
Pros: "The flight was smooth and faster"

Pros: "The flight was delayed by 2 hours but it was quite well handled by the crew"

Cons: "Wait to board and after time passes for departure, notice for delay only after expected departure time. No explanation. 1hr delay then they call to gate and everyone waits and another hour passes and no explanation given. Finally next boarding time passes and then gate change and plane change and we are notified they needed to get new crew. Finally board. Landing was terrible and I dont feel particularly comfortable ever flying with this airline again. Will rather pay more and fly klm"

Cons: "Did not accept American Express credit cards. In flight entertainment was old kids cartoons on shared screens. Other flights allow passengers to choose their own in flight entertainment."
Pros: "Price was competitive, plane is new."
Cons: "Lines at check-in were long. Odd feeling that most passengers did not get even cup of water on long oversee flights, unless they do not pay outrageous meal prices in advance or in flight. I gave up my meal to my young neighbors, because I could not eat while they were hungry. Norwegian went way over board with their frugality."
Pros: "Easy and well organised. No long waits."
Cons: "Check-in process for colleague's musical instrument appalling. For lute safety requires window seat. Can't be done online or at automated check-in desks.

Cons: "Felt like we were being herded like cattle"
Cons: "Airplane seats"
Pros: "Speed of getting to the destination"
Cons: "Huge queues for security at Budapest airport that stretched to the front doors of the terminal, followed by terrible gate facilities in a warehouse structure in the middle of the runway away from the terminal building. Flight delayed by 40mins but no information shared with passengers who were standing in the queue with no access to facilities or any information about how long the delay would be. Flight itself was (eventually) fine but not encouraged to fly easyjet again from Budapest if it can be avoided."

Cons: "The passengers were arse holes bit the crew dealt with it well"
Pros: "On time, friendly, polished,"

Pros: "The boarding was quick and efficient"
Cons: "The amount of seat space is very limited. I am 5' 8" and my knees were touching the seat in front of me and I had to sit almost all the flight with crossed arms as I had a middle seat. Cheap flight, cheap seats."
Cons: "2 hours delay caused us to lose the day"
Cons: "The take off was delayed too much."
Cons: "First of all they charge you plenty for checked bags. They want you to pay on line. I tried and could not get it done. Not sure why it was just in a loop. So I paid close to 50 euros a bag at the airport. Highway Robbery in my opinion. They also charge 3 euros for a cup of coffee."

Pros: "Everything was perfect."

Pros: "It was a convenient platform and to the point."
Pros: "Hassle free boarding. Flight was very comfortable with a very smooth take off and landing."
Cons: "No on board entertainment"
Cons: "Boarding in Amsterdam was delayed and information was not available about it. The boarding gates did not have facilities for handicapped people on wheelchairs, or people with children in pushchairs, who had to carry them down through all the stairs to the boarding gate and then wait. They should be told in advance of those limitations and not allowed to take the pushchairs on the plane, I think."
Cons: "Was a delay caused by a false alarm! Annoying that I got up at 4 to wait around for 2 hours"
Pros: "Not a lot."
Cons: "In my opinion there was a total lack of information from staff to staff and from staff to customers."

Pros: "They actually flew into the main airport"
Cons: "The whole priority thing is a total joke and just another way to f*** the passengers over why don’t they just give us a price without all this bloody nonsense of baggage"
Pros: "Easy trip. Crew relaxed, short flight."
Cons: "The process of getting on the flight is the most exhausting part: distance to Terminal 1, multiple screenings and checks, then another long bus ride to the plane. The flight itself was is the easiest part at this airport."
Pros: "The frew was nice"
Cons: "When I made the reservation, I paid 20 Euro for 1 suitcase (20 kg.), but was surprised to realize that the payment was not valid for the whole trip (but only for one flight). I had to pay 40 Euro for the flight back. It could be helpful if you'd clarify this as part of the reservation process."
Pros: "Crew were good considering the difficult situation they found themselves in"
Cons: "Once everyone had boarded we were told we would be on the tarmac for 2 hours before we leave. While we sat there we were told they could not serve us anything while on the ground...even water! When we finally were airborne the crew were overwhelmed with customer orders and not all people got served"
Pros: "Flight took off on time"
Cons: "Seats are very uncomfortable"
Pros: "Thete is nothing really good in low cost flight, so if you are not expecting you will not be disappointed. Recommend purchase the priority package in advance and allowed to bring two items on board."
Pros: "Helpful staff especially with disabled access."
Cons: "Not seated together with my wife despite booking months ago. Very cramped conditions on a very full flight meant it was uncomfortable Bought our own food onboard as realised everything was charged for. Even water."
Cons: "Poor check in Service ... bullying. Paid 40 Euro each for 3 extra bags .... website extremely unclear. Plane had to return after taxiing to let ‘unwell passenger ‘ off. No other ongoing explanation... took an hour to get him off ! Felt quite unsafe ! Had to ask if they retrieved his bag ."
Cons: "Their staff not helpful on desk Asked them the question how to get boarding code pass barely answered"
Cons: "Rude gate agent and they played the blame game as to why they were late!"
Cons: "2 hours delay"
Cons: "Tutto in ritardo anche afumicino abblamo aspetato oiu di 2ore per le bagali.la partenza in ritardo,e poi abbuamo viaggiato piu di 4ore"
Pros: "Short flight Flight itself is cheap Plane ok"
Cons: "Could not seat with my partner - it looks as if it is done on purpose so that people will pay Also - the price for the suitcase is outrages and much too expensive"
Cons: "We spent a lot of time standing in lines."
Pros: "Literally nothing."
Cons: "To be charged $20 at the ticket counter for a printed boarding pass is offensive. Despite having already checked in online, Ryannair apparently thinks I should have spent my holiday hunting down a print shop as not to incur their "get a printed boarding pass from an unpleasant ticket counter employee" fee. No boarding pass kiosks and unclear why they would not provide a digital one upon online check-in. Or rather it became clear as I handed over my debit card. Seats are intentionally designated apart from your travel companions so you'll pay more to have them switched to sit next your friend. Cabin is extra cramped. Ryannair is all-around terrible by budget airline standards."
Cons: "Flight delay, everything costs money, even a glass of water. I never will fly with them"
Cons: "The fee to check in at the airport was absurd. There is no reason that they should not have been able to accommodate me when I was unable to check in online. The luggage is incredibly expensive as well."
Pros: "price and schedule were very fine on time pleasant staff"
Cons: "they changed their onboard bag policy was changed several times between our purchase of tickets and flight date , poor policy and customer relations"
Cons: "1. I brought a trolley according to the specifications in the web page and the message sent to me. They claim it was too big, even though it did fit into the box they use to measure the luggage, saying that it fitted too tight, and insisted on my paying an extra 50 euro. 2. They purposely split family members in the hope that people will pay extra to sit together. We did it on the first leg, but then managed to switch seats without extra cost in the second leg. It just required several people switching around."
Pros: "best food and drinks best clubs"
Pros: "Low price"
Cons: "delay of 1:30."
Pros: "on time"
Cons: "Flying shop"
Pros: "The crew traveling out of Rome was pleasant is the only thing positive I can say."
Cons: "-we paid extra for priority boarding and did go through the line first to board the shuttle to the plane but then they had everyone else from the overbooked plane crowded like sardines into the same shuttle. It was a waste of money. -traveling to Rome on Ryanair we took samsonite carry on luggage onto the plane with no problems. Leaving Rome we were told to recheck our luggage size. The wheels stick out a little and they made us pay 100 Euros to check our bags. Once on the plane we saw many passengers with luggage and bags much larger than our own and did not have to pay to have them checked. We were the only Americans on the plane. -The seats do not recline and are at a 90 degree angle which is very uncomfortable for a 3 hour flight. -the crew traveling to Rome was very rude. -the seats were dirty with food and crumbs before I sat down and there was trash and food on the floor. It is as if the plane is not cleaned routinely."
Pros: "Ryanair was a great surprise. I am 1.79 in height the seats were not cramped, yes they do"
Pros: "Fast accurate on time and proffesional"
Pros: "Boarding was quick from front and back. Food service aslo went both directions, quick and efficient."
Cons: "Arrival is horrific"
Cons: "Flight was cancelled. Ruined my travel plans and made me miss another flight, bus ride, and also got charged for a hostel I never made it to. Thanks Ryan air!!"
Cons: "Late , expensive, loud, no leg room seat do not tilt !"
Pros: "departure time"
Cons: "no water to drink"
Pros: "We arrived about 20min earlier than expected. Our bags were checked in for free and we got them on time and without issues at the baggage belt on arrival. Snacks and drinks are not free but available for purchase. There isn't any kind of on-board entertainment. We sat in the last row and we have plenty of leg room - surprisingly."
Cons: "No drinks for free. It would be nice to get at least a glass of water. But it is understandable that low budget- short flights are not offering such services anymore."
Pros: "The staff were okay."
Cons: "Everything else."
Cons: "Extra baggage cost"
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Haven't received a response to my late flight from London to Dublin from Ryan Air- flight Fr143"
Pros: "They didn't make me check my bag on the first flight but did on the second. It cost me 50 Euro, which is more than I paid for the flight. Overall, good airline if you pack light."
Pros: "Meeting my seat mate!"
Cons: "Drunken rowdies from Ireland going to Amsterdam took over the cabin with obnoxious, vulgar behavior...fueled by the cabin staff selling the drunken crowd even more alcohol! One poor passenger had a seizure on the way to the runway and was subjected to their reticule! They should have been removed!"
Pros: "Good price - the plane was clean and appeared well maintained."
Cons: "The airlines does nickle and dime you on other fees. I find it annoying that you need to print your boarding pass at home (or incur a fee) and still stand in line at the desk to check your boarding pass. We found it worth the extra fee for priority boarding. It improves the experience."
Cons: "U have to print boarding pass 2 hours before I did t See this written anywhere . Also they close the gate 30 minutes before and it takes 30 minotes to get to the gate Very difficult process so fate was closed and I had to pay 60 eu for luggage which was never clear anywhere and I had to check-in 3 hours before you have to check in before u can print the boarding pass so I was looking for a boarding pass but could t get it since I didn't know I had to check In???????? Mo5hi g explained anywhere!"
Pros: "Quick flight, no hassle."
Cons: "Delayed without explanation, boarded the plane then sat for 40 minutes waiting to take off."
Pros: "The flight was okay."
Cons: "One of the attendants was very rude to my group leaving Ireland. We had previously checked in to our flight but didn't have our boarding passes printed. Instead giving us direction, she sent us away to figure out how to get our boarding passes in an airport we had been in."
Pros: "They were efficient and timely"
Cons: "We asked two Ryanair employees when we arrived at the import if our bags would b considered carry-on and then we were forced to pay $50 each at the gate to check our bags, making this economy flight much more expensive. We saw a number of people with bags as large as ours carry on and even the baggage attendants outside the plane were surprised. Wong fly Ryanair again due to one stubborn employee at the gate"
Pros: "Everyone was very nice, and the flight was uneventful. Will fly again and learned lesson about luggage fees."
Cons: "Had two bags to check. Paid for two bags in advance. Didn't know there was a total weight allowance across two bags. First bag ate up most of total weight allowance which forced me to pay for the overage on the second bag of €70. I thought I could bump up my second bag to the higher weight class when checking in instead of having to pay the overage charge that was three times as much. Found out during boarding they were checking bags for free...should have done carry on and avoided the extra costs."
Pros: "They knew that there world be a 2 hour weather delay but boarded is on the plane and made us wait 2 hours so we wouldn't have the chance to reschedule our cancel."
Cons: "over head was so small could not get bag in that was perfectly fine on other flights. And it is the only airline that we had to go to verify passport . All other did it while we were in line."
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."

Its a fraud - we paid for regular Arkia flight and ended up with low low low service !!!!!"

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 flight was delayed 2.5 hours and they were not keeping us updated, the plane was so outdated and old the seats were horrible, the food was beyond awful, and it was also not an arkia plane it was another small random airline's plane....overall the experience was NOT GOOD"
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."
Cons: "Terrible food - you offer one sandwich for a 5 hour flight? If this is a low-cost then at least offer the opportunity to buy food.. Overcrowded plane - this is a very old plane, no space to move, and boy it was crowded."

(4 hours) the overall felling was bad... i wont but another arkia flight"
