Cons: "Was a good experience"
Pros: "Crew was very nice in business. Very helpful and catering to every need."
Cons: "The entertainment. Hollywood movies were not working."
Pros: "I' not sure which flight this relates to. I've taken economy and business class and clearly the business class is better but economy is fine. The crew were good in both classes and whilst the food in business was better I didn't have a problem in economy either."
Cons: "Check in was fine and very friendly but boarding could be better particularly in business. At Heathrow it was a bit chaotic as all classes seemed to be mixed up so it was difficult for priority passengers such as disabled to get through everyone crowded up to the desks and the same applied for business class as well. The IFE wasn't too bad but it could be better. Bahrain airport is a mess and the boarding gates seem to be more like corridors with seats in them so it's difficult again when they call for business class passengers as unless you are already at the front you have to try to work your way through. I believe the airport is being rebuilt. If so then things will probably improve. I'm not sure why there needs to be 2 security checks within a few yards of each other when transiting between flights. they don't have this problem in Doha."
Pros: "Crew was good"
Cons: "Everything worked well, the boarding, on time flight, flight was smooth and landed 15 mins before time."
Cons: "Not lied to me about my extra being payed from Bahrain to Kenya because it was only payed to Dubai which is now causing me a lot of stress my flight from Dubai to Nairobi was cancelled while i was there without my knowledge"
Cons: "Economy sets are too tight and cramped. Cup holder was good for nothing, i tried to put my soft drink bottle in it and it slipped right out the bottom and when I tried to put a cup of water in it supplied by the crew it wouldn't fit! When I reclined my seat to sleep the passenger behind me pushed my seat hard back to upright position. When I turned around to ask why the rude response I realized that he was a tall fellow and his knees were already touching the back of my seat so when I reclined it, it hurt him and he had no where to move his legs. I couldn't do or say much as I understood his misery and therefore kept my seat up the whole way for 5 hours! The flight was full and neither of us could relocate to another seat."

Cons: "Firsr leg of flight was delayed (mnl to bah) then luggage was lost when we arrived in Paris. Food on the plane was mediocre. Service was poor. I kept having to request water because only a small glass of water was made available at meal service, and typically most airlines on international.flights offer water consistently throughout the flight. Flight attendants all but disappeared in between services. Coffee was also terrible borderline undrinkable. When luggage was lost no offer was provided for a solution - voucher, per diem, etc. We were coming from a warm climate and had to exist for two days layering warm weather clothes. Luckily we had our coats in our carryon. But both travelers became sick during our trip."

Pros: "Not much."
Cons: "Seating atrocious. Considering there first. Was given row 40 then at boarding was moved to 55. 6 rows from back. As domeone who suffers epilepsy and cancer and other health issues it was unpleasant sitting amidst lots of noisy children. I asked hostess if there were two seats up front was told “absolutely not” during flight i went and sat at back on crews seat just to make it easier was told to get off not permitted. Then i gave up. I fly a lot for work but wont be flying Thai again. Sorry disappointing. Ps I told crew member anout health issues and she was not interested. So cheers."
Cons: "Storage is too small for trolley or even a computer bagpack"
Pros: "Crew and boarding and price"
Cons: "Charging got coffee is a bit much. NO foot room"
Pros: "the part I liked was that the plane didn't crash."
Cons: "other than the pilot doing his job, the experience of flying on this flight (operated by Arkia) wasn't up to any basic standards. this began when the boarding started - we were escorted to our busses which was to take us to the plane itself. however there was no bus. apparently the bus was right around the corner but its perfectly aligned stop near the doors was hindered by a truck that took about a third of the spot. so for some reason instead of simply allowing passengers to walk 3 meters, we had to stand in a small inclosed area for about 15 min with no seats for the older people. once we actually boarded it was chaos. people stuffed their luggage in the overheads in such a way that they didn't close, couldn't find their seats and we're stuck in the isle waiting for others to find a place for their luggage. this happens, sure, but there was no staff in sight to assist and instead they were on the microphone telling people to clear the isle and sit down, like we're on a bus... why not have people board the plane in groups and areas? the bus did two rounds of bringing people to the plane anyway, why not do this smartly and devide passengers into boarding groups, for our and the staffs ease? Finally everyone were in their seats and the plane took off. this is a very short flight of 45 min. and I understand it's a low cost company but during almost half of the flight you just hear the staff on the speakers reading out commercials, offering to buy cigarettes and whatever, telling how they have the best prices(!). finally we land, and instead of requesting everybody remain in their seats until the doors open, like the staff does on every single flight I've ever been on in my life, the guy on the mic says some stupid joke. TLDR : the whole flight felt like it was operated and staffed by teenagers, and not the responsible and bright kind. I am very happy we arrived safe because the staff made me doubt the pilots abilities as well. nothing to say about the passengers, they're israeli so anyone who has flown with them know what it feels like. just put your headphones in, it'll be over soon."
Pros: "They found an aisle seat for me even though I said it wasn't all that important....very nice of them, plane and service were great, stewerdesses were very nice. Plenty of leg room!!"
Cons: "nothing, all was very professional"
Pros: "All was cool!"
Cons: "All was ok, flight was a bit late, but fine"
Pros: "I liked the landing that put me out from my misery of the awful experience"
Cons: "I will never fly with them again , 2 hours of security at 5 AM in israel ! And 2 and half hours of screening us in italy just because im a Jew and my wife is not , theu seperetaed us and ask us question to proof our 7 years of marriage for an hour and a half ! Then open our bags , and went throw item item for another hour , touching our underwear and dildos infront of everyone in the airport, hello!!!! Humiliation!!!! "Lucky" we came 3 hours before our flight , obvieslly had no time to shop at duty free. The food (blinches if you can call it food) was descusting! Nasty , took 1 bite and it was nasty , The airplain was old and was playing 1 movie in Hebrew, what the hell !!!"
Pros: "The flight was nightmare. They charge me 70$ about the suitcase (just one way) and all the boarding process took more than 3 hours. I will never fly with this company again (no matter how it will cost)"
Pros: "On time fabulous service great processes"
Cons: "Should serve beer"
Cons: "That the passengers left such a mess and I felt sad, over all a great fought."
Cons: "El Al has a draconian carry on limit of 8 KG, which they enforce strictly. The also do not allow a personal item in addition to the carry on. This is extremely inadequate and will prevent me from flying El Al in the future."
Cons: "Check in was inefficient. I was assigned a seat and I was flying with my mom and we asked to be placed together and they said we'd have to pay to sit together. Boarding started on time but then on the plane was a disaster. It took an inordinate amount of time to board and get everyone seated. I was sitting the back of the plane and there wasn't enough overhead cabin space for bags since they back areas were filled with other equipment. The seats were horribly uncomfortable - between by legs getting smashed because of non existent leg room and with the chair itself just being awful. The room was so inadequate that the person sitting next to me was basically in my space unintentionally. There was no entertainment for a 4 hour flight which was awful. It was overall one of the worst flying experiences."
Pros: "Nice service"
Cons: "Dinner was a sandwich"
Pros: "צוות הדיילים היה נהדר, סבלני, חייכן ומסייע"
Cons: "מערכת ההקרנה היתה מקולקלת. הסאוונדנלא מסונכרן עם הוידאו. לכן אי אפשר היה לצפות בסרט"
Cons: "The check-in line and counters were not divided by flights, it was chaotic, and I almost missed my flight. The crowd was disrespectful and the staff not helpful. Only when it was clear that people would miss their flights, did a staff member help them to get through. I almost missed my flight, and had an unpleasant experience. I will make every effort to avoid flying with El Al"
Pros: "I dont normally complain and almost never give a negative review but to many things went wrong on my round trip flying elal. Firstly i took a backrow seat hopeing for some more space unfortunately the way the plain was set up there was an obstical behind my chair and i could recline there was no leg room and the seat was dirty i fell asleep and missed all the meals and the screen on my chair was broken so no entertainment. On the flight back i made sure to get a exit seat but i was aganist the window and the bottem of the plane door gave me less room than a normal seat the tray is stowed one the side of the seat and it was in a filthy compartments sorry guys i dont ever want to fly with you guys again 9 hours of this was just to much."
Pros: "Food was ok, cabin crew friendly, price is reasonable"
Cons: "1. Boarding was through the bus under the rain 2. Departure was delayed because bus driver couldn't get to the boarding position due to poor coordination with ground crew 3. Total flight delay was 1.5 hours (missed connection) 4. Some passenger announcements (including connection information) were made only in Hebrew (had to ask for English translation) 5. The only El Al lounge in TLV closes at night (even though no "business hours" posted) and you can't get there if you come early or have long connection in TLV 6. El Al ticketing desk in AMS refused to help with changing ticket caused by _delay of their flight_ and sent me to the connecting airline (I had single connecting ticket)"
Cons: "Took an hour to get stewardess's attention. Finally when did get attention, was told not during being served that someone would return after. No one ever did. Called over supervisor to notify that 6 of thirteen video channels had sound only, no picture. She said she would see what she could do. She left and never came back. There were 2 aggressive passengers on the flight that I saw and they got what they asked for. Is that what this airline would like to pride themselves in improving. Other issues too, but do not want to state a list of grievences. " Tired and disappointed.""
Pros: "The food was very good. The seating in coach was fair."
Cons: "It is a nuisance having to take a shuttle bus from the terminal to the plane and climbing stairs carrying carry on luggage to board."
Pros: "The seats are all worn out... we had special food ordered. On the way there it was messed up. On the was back they didn't give it to me all together."
Pros: "Direct flight from tel aviv to new york, great security, handicapped check in"
Cons: "No USB port at seat, limited entertainment, unresponsive crew-requested more tea and never received it. Tight seating, didn't leave on time"
Cons: "Everything. Never fly El Al again. I will tell all my friends who will tell all of their friends"
Cons: "The light was out at my seat, & I couldn't read, & the staff said they couldn't fix it. There was no menu for the tv, & the majority of the movies were in French with Hebrew subtitles, unwatchable for this English-only person. This was a 15 hour flight. They fed us a tiny tasteless breakfast as soon as we got on & brought nothing around for seven hours! Just before they served dinner, I walked back to ask when they were serving & found they had tuna sandwiches in the galley, However, THEY NEVER TOLD ANYONE ABOUT IT!!! I fly to Israel twice a year, & this was my first unpleasant trip with El-Al. I think I deserve compensation. Thank you. Harriet"
Pros: "Food was okay; make any diet"
Cons: "The worst part of this whole ordeal is that we paid for an El Al flight but were serviced by a completely different airline; very disappointing and deceptive. The airline "Prestige operated our flight from Toronto to Tel Aviv. The air plane and the crew were NOT el Al. The airline Prestige had an older aircraft with no TVs, entertainment for kids, the crew was not El Al for an overseas transatlantic flight VERY poor...on the return flight from Tel Aviv the same airline and aircraft operated by Prestige airlines was utilized and this time the ordeal turned into a nightmare. During take off from Tel Aviv as the plane was gaining speed to go into the air one of the tires blew and we almost had a catastrophe on the runway. We were on the runway for 2 hours and then deboarded; waited in TLV airport for 8 hours before taking flight on an actual El Al plane. The point that needs to be made is to verify that you are taking an actual EL Al plane NOT a partner airline....the airplanes on an actual El AL fight are accommodating and offer good service, food and entertainment (which is much needed on a transatlantic flight; especially if traveling with children)."
Pros: "Standard service on the plane"
Cons: "So, if you have an idea of when you would like to travel, and you purchase a ticket based on your desired time, BEWARE! Long story short, they decided to assign a different plane to my flight, consisting of less seats, and BOOT ME OUT. I arrived at the airport only to find out that I am leaving well past my original time, with no one able to give a rhyme or reason. Wrong gate printed on the ticket. Complete chaos! IF YOU WANT TO LEAVE AND BE ON TIME, STAY AWAY FROM THIS LIKE A DISEASE."
Pros: "I like the safety procedures that were performed before boarding the plane. I feel safe on el al. The boarding was on time. The 777 was MUCH better than the plane on which we flew to tel Aviv. That was flight 28. We were dreading getting on the flight home, but this was much better."
Cons: "The seats do not give enough leg room. I'm only 5' 3". I actually have leg discomfort even now, almost 24 hours after the flight. also, the hot meals are okay, but the cold meals are not very good. My whole family left most of that meal on their trays. the flight on the way to tel Aviv, flight 28 was poor in every category. So at least, this flight number 27 was better."
Cons: "Plane left late and arrived late. As a result we missed our connecting flight and, because of the impending typhoon in Hong Kong, had to be rerouted via Auckland on Air New Zealand. As a result it took us an extra 24 hours to get home."
Cons: "El Al is the main airline at TLV airport, yet the line for check-in for them is the worst-organized line i have ever witnessed. They should do what every other airline is doing to improve queues, instead of abandoning passengers to a chaotic process."
Pros: "And it caused me to miss my connection. El al refused to take responsibility and I was on stand by for hours"
Cons: "They should take care of the people"
"Too many hours of delay ( 4)"
Pros: "The flight was fine"
Cons: "Let me know by mail to check in before I got to the airport and save me 35 euro"
Cons: "Lower the aircondition temp, it was hot in the plane during flight"
Pros: "The crew was ok. The seats no conmfortable."
Cons: "Every time the same problems. Bording we have to wait almost an hour and then all the people have to wait for the bus in a very Small place(like animals) then at the bus... waiting in a full one untill someone says ok to ride.."
Pros: "The leg space"
Cons: "The don't let you sit together unless you pay extra, it's absolutely absurd. Thay put us on the opposite side of the airplane."
Cons: "You must check in few hours before the flight. Checking in at the airport will cost you 35€. Besides that, the boarding took almost 40min and the seats are not comfy at all. That said, i would rather pay extra $50 and fly with normal company."
Pros: "Budget friendliness"
Pros: "Overall experience was good. Boarding was fine and onboard crew was nice and helpful."
Cons: "Seats do not recline and there is not a lot of legroom, especially if you are over 180 cm."
Pros: "One of the very rare on-time, efficient and smooth flights with Wizzair. Check-in was fairly quick and incident-free, despite some of the other passengers reporting problems with the procedures and the staff. Boarding was quick and the flight actually arrived 10 minutes earlier than scheduled."
Cons: "As usual, the cabin crew is adequately polite, but not overly friendly, the food & beverage range is mediocre and overpriced at best and the entertainment is virtually non-existent."
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: "I think some of the issues were passenger related, and passengers not listening to the crew. So it wasn't so much I liked it but some of the crew's attitudes were warranted based on the passengers."
Cons: "We were loaded onto the bus to take us to the plane and then stood on the bus for 45 minutes! Then were delayed even longer. With zero explanation the entire time. Additionally having to pay for even water is a bit much, especially when I came prepared, but drank more because it was hot on the bus."
Pros: "Once boarding started it was very fast and flight left shortly after"
Cons: "Seats are very uncomfortable"
Cons: "Never announced for non-priority boarding, so many people were late to flight, causing delays. Much less than minimum leg room required for any normal human. Sat bolt upright with front seat digging into knees for 3 hours. Far from the cheapest ticket, but totally no frills, no food, no entertainment, limited baggage. Wizz Air mobile app barely works when required (for boarding passes, etc) Not enough room in overheads for all the carry on they allowed, had to sit with bag and jacket on my lap for flight, as no room under seat either."
Pros: "Service, smiling and attention to details."
Cons: "No kosher food."
Pros: "On time, cabin crew, ease of boarding and amount of bags I could take with Priority Boarding"
Cons: "My seat hadn't been cleaned prooerly before I got there and if I hadn't done it myself, I would have someone else's chocolate all over the seat of my trousers. Also, the bathroom floors were really gross, to the point I had to roll uo the legs of my trousers so they didn't get wet when I needed to use the toilet."
Pros: "The price"
Cons: "The borsing from terminal 1 is should be highlight The man in the check in and bording wad not nice at all. He didn't answer any question. They took our hand bag. We couldn't take it to the plan and no one explaon why."
Pros: "The crew was very nice. The flight was ok"
Cons: "Not much of a food choice.."
Pros: "Staff was nice and felt bad for their company’s policy."
Cons: "I was charged $45 US dollars to print my boarding pass!!! I’m used to only being able to check in 24 hours before my flight. I found out that I cannot print my boarding pass within 48 hours of my flight. I was monitarily RAPED and will be disputing these charges! Boo on you Wizz Air....aka f*ckwads."
Pros: "The crew was really nice"
Cons: "They are not organized. This company doesn’t have a transparent policy. Because I didn’t checked in on time I had to pay 35 euros. I was there 2 1/2 hours early and I almost missed the flight. I’m extremely upset"
Pros: "i was able to use their app to download my boarding pass so didn't need to look for somewhere to print my boarding pass while abroad, boarding went well, flight was good and crew was good, seat was comfortable, so overall i was pleased with everything. Thank you for a good experience."
Cons: "Everything was good"
Cons: "No air conditioned 2 hours late Poor ground service"
Pros: "The flight was overbooked so they took my wife of the flight"
Pros: "There wasn't any delays, perfect landing"
Cons: "Flight delayed by more than 2 hours, additional 40 minutes in the plain before departure. At least 30 minutes until doors opened. Overall huge delay that totally killed my business day."
Pros: "Everything was on time, no delays. Polite crue. Easy boarding."
Cons: "The seats are not comfortable at all"
Pros: "On time boarding, departure and arrival. Smooth flight. Better than Ryanair."
Cons: "Seats were horrible. Narrow, no leg room and awfully uncomfortable. Worse than easyJet."
Pros: "Pilot flew well Cup Noodles available to buy"
Cons: "1h+ delayed No information from the staff or crew (only one apology from the pilot) Left waiting in multiple places including outside the aircraft No updates whatsoever on estimated departure and arrival"
Pros: "Price and schedule. Going on time with no delays. Good value for money."
Cons: "Very hard on baggage policy"
Cons: "Priority: advantage only on call. Afterwards no adantage afterwardsroom for hand luggage"
Pros: "Cabin Crew and Pilot did their best"
Cons: "Flight was delayed and landed in Birmingham instead of Luton, due to Luton being closed at midnight"
Cons: "There was a mix up and the Wizz Air website did not work. Therefore, I couldn't check in a get my seats booked. I also could not prepay for my luggage so they overcharged me at the airport and had an attitude about it. My luggage was given three different prices quotes. I am very upset their website didn't work and they ripped me off at the airport."
Cons: "Was delayed on tarmac due to security error, not their error, but they seemed unwilling to at least give people complimentary water or coffee. Cheap airline they are!"
Cons: "Extra fees for baggage and tickets that were not disclosed. The check in was incredibly disorganized. No help was provided with problems."
Cons: "Everything. Worst service I have ever seen on a flight."
Cons: "Arrived at the airport 2 hours before departure, I was not aware you can't checkin at the airport and need to pay 30 euros for it. The treatment and the attitude from the personnel at the check in counter was rude, they were short and unkind The staff member in charge of charging for checking was incredibly slow, there were 4 people in line including me and it took her 40 minutes to charge me the 30 euros This was after I already stood in line for the ticket for another 30 mins I almost missed my flight due to their poor handling"
Pros: "cheap, on time"
Cons: "no reclining chairs, no free water"
Cons: "Lots of hidden charges."
Cons: "The flight is late from tlv to luton and from luton to tlv."

Pros: "Friendly staff members"
Cons: "They didn't have blanket and it was very cold.."
Cons: "Basic flight. Rude crew and late flight"

Pros: "It was simple, every thing was fast in the airport."
Cons: "Small airplane it was a bit choked."
Pros: "Pleasent staff"
Pros: "The crue was excellent."
Cons: "i was surprised by the high extra charge we have been requested to pay for the suitcases. Wizz attracts clients by offering low prices. while in fact the price is much higher than with other companies. price paid for the suitcases, 235 eur, is an additional ticket. unbleivable. and no one tells us that the extra fees might be as high as the ticket itself. personnaly, in future, i shall avoid flying with wizz and i shall never recommend this company to anybody!"
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"

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

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 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."
Pros: "It was fast"
Cons: "The drinks"
Cons: "Ground support for landing in tlv is horrible waiting for bus outside plane for a long time even thouh flight was on time"
Cons: "Plane was delayed by two hours"

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