The remote buttons were not quick to respond and needed to be pressed firmly and slowly. The food menu needs more lighter options. The toilet could use mouthwash addition."
Pros: "We had requested wheelchair assistance. And the way helper was assisting us its not professional services. Which Qatar Airways promissi g to us."

NOT GOOD"

Completely awful and really disappointing"

"The price but the service was poor and the staff was very rough and unfriendly."

The flight crew were friendly and professional. The food was delicious and sufficient. Overall very happy with my first flight in LOT."
Cons: "Knowing that the incoming was late ground crew could have been better prepared with a motorised transport in the airport (instead of me running out of my breadth).

Pros: "Pilots did a very good job"
Pros: "The aircraft was big and clean, but the seats were not comfortable. No entertainment at all, not sure why it was list for review. My biggest problem was with their communicates. I booked this flight from Tel Aviv to London with 60min.layover in Warsaw, the schedule LOT offered. .The first leg to Warsaw was 30min. late without any announcement and no one mentioned about how it would affected connecting flights. So I asked the flight attendent before lading in Warsaw and she suggested to run throught the security. We thought we might have a chance as we were sitting close to the front rows. Nah, not so fast. It turned out that's not as rsimple as unning between the gates, everyone had to be shuttled to the main terminal and only the business class got a small van and went first, abd we were not allowed on that van even I told the guy we needed to catch the flight. Long story short, we finally made to the gate, Thanks to a LOT personnel pushed us to the front of security check and informed the gate we were coming. We literally RAN after the security to the gate. They reopened the gate to let us in and the aircraft pushed away right after we got on. The luggage, with that tight schedule, of course they would not be able to make the swich to London. So we had nothing except the cloth from Tel Aviv, its about 15C in tempture, we were freezing. Waiting for our luggage to be delivered to our hotel for warm clothes before we can go out"
Pros: "Food/drink options"
Cons: "Customer service"
Cons: "the above"
Cons: "The crew barely spoke English, only polish and didn’t care about you if you didn’t speak polish. The food was horrible and tasteless. And my suitcase was broken into and my packet of cigarettes was ripped apart and half was stolen"
Pros: "Flight was fine, and on-board crew was polite and helpful."
Cons: "Both the check-in AND gate agents seemed to ignore that you are allowed one personal item (e.g. purse) and one small rolling suitcase (sized and weighed as per LOT requirements) and tried to insist that we check in our small suitcases (for free). In the end, they did relent, but I was surprised at this. There was a small but decent variety of snacks for this 4+ hour flight."
Cons: "Boarding started on time yet we took off an hour late"
Cons: "Still waiting for our luggage two hours after deplaning. The luggage has not been unloaded from the plane. Hundreds of people still waiting This is unacceptable"
Cons: "On Monday, May 21, payment was made for 2 suitcases in the amount of $47. At check in next day we were asked to pay and paid 40 Euro for 2 suitcases. We told them that we already paid, to no avail. We would like to have an explanation. According to LOT luggage policy we should not be paying for 1 suitcase per person at all.."

Pros: "Your crew manager was being very arrogant.. No tolerance at all"
Pros: "The crew was hospitable and warm. All the in-flight service was attentive and high-quality. We had a wonderful experience with LOT and would reccent them."
Cons: "The only potential difficulty was the short layovers. We made our connection boarding with only 20 minutes to spare."
Pros: "Crew was friendly."
Cons: "Calling the trip 'business class' is simply a bad lie. While it is common in Europe to give this dirty nasty lie do not mistake this flight to a 'business class'. It is simply that you get same seats and spacing as in the other torture chamber known as "economy" which I call cattle class (I suspect they would not let them fly cattle in those conditions). This lie is based on leaving the middle seat empty. Otherwise teh torture is the same. In short I hope someone will sue the SOB that invented this concept and that was allowed to call this 'business class'. It is nothing short of a fraud."
Pros: "Very roomy well designed plane. Good communication from pilot and staff."
Cons: "I lost my iPad during this flight. Luckily it was found in the Warsaw airport but the airline did not do anything to help me besides giving me some phone numbers and email addresses. It would cost more to ship it back to the US then the iPad is worth. It would be nice if lot would provide help to get it to me."
Cons: "The flight was cancelled"
Pros: "This time I found an ail place"
Cons: "We were delayed. I was also asked to switch seats and was placed next to an ultra orthodox family, who was NOT happy to be seated next to a woman. This put me in an extremely uncomfortable situation, and the crew was not helpful in helping me resolve this. I basically had to go back and undo the switch myself - I would like to point out that the airline has just as much responsibility to protect me and my rights as they do to protect the other passengers, and I feel they fell short."
Pros: "It was on time"
Cons: "We were forced to pay for our checked bag and it felt like a scam. We even showed the staff the website where it said free 1st checked bag and they said we don't work for LOT we work for airport. Very scammy to me. Felt very unfair."
Pros: "Getting off at the end"
Cons: "Food, seats, no entertainment the worse business class in the industry. Boarding was also a mess. Absolutely no redeeming features."
Cons: "We were charged extra 50$ for our bags despite of Terms said that one bag up to 23kg is free"

Cons: "Food, WiFi on airplane."
Pros: "The service, cleans and crew was great. The food and beverage was very good. The sits are comfortable."
Cons: "The time between flights was too long which. made the overall experience less attractive."
Pros: "The crew was courteous and efficient."
Cons: "Ordered kosher food, meh. Could have used a little more leg room because I am 6 feet tall."
Pros: "Nothing except that it got me safely to my destination"
Cons: "Food was terrible and there was a long human hair in my beef. Entertainment was one thing only, and it was in Hebrew with Hebrew subtitles. Bathroom was out of TP, not very clean. Crew was abrupt and service was very limited, with one having to walk to the galley for coffee or tea after the meal."
Pros: "nice plane, cheery staff"
Cons: "Flight was 40 minutes late"
Pros: "Very comfortable. Great value for money."
Cons: "The meal of yaman bread was tasty but a bit heavy."
Cons: "The middle seats cannot accommodate an adult properly. I sat for 11 hours with a strange persons body pressed against my arms and legs I couldn't get any sleep whatsoever Those seats should only be assigned to kids or passengers that are traveling together and want to sit together"
Pros: "Crew was great, service very good, entertainment wide selection"
Cons: "Delay, food, entertainment"
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."
Cons: "Got the worst seats on the plane. Didn’t have an option to select seats while booking. If the reason for a good flight price is bad seats it should be stated up front. ‘No seat selection’"
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: "Amazing service and comfortable seating on the Dreamliner"
Pros: "Like all El al flights, it was just okay. Not the best but value for money"
Cons: "Food, seats, entertainment"
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.""
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)."

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."

Cons: "we were trapped on board without ac while still on airport ground without any announcement what was going on after about 45 min. they announced that the ac was not working and they r trying to fix it; still doors locked afterwords they announced that we will be taking another plane 2 hours which made the total delay around 3 hours"
Cons: "This is not exactly a low cost airline because FlyDubai charges egular prices for BEG-DXB flights, therfore, passagers should be offered a complimentary drink and food on a 5 hours flight for the price we paid."
Pros: "It was on time, which is always a good thing!"
Cons: "The check in agent was not very helpful. He said, "Would you like window or aisle?" I said, "Window please". He says, "there are no windows. I can give you an aisle." I said, "but you asked me if I wanted a window." He said, "you are too late" (as though it's my fault... but I was one of the earlier ones at check-in and was not able to check-in online!). He continues, "I can give you an aisle in row 23". I say, "okay". Then after I leave the check-in counter and look at my boarding pass it says I have seat 11B. Neither window or aisle! In addition, I flew this flight as part of an Emirates ticket and it was not cheap, and yet the FlyDubai segment did not include a meal."
Cons: "The price and the service"
Pros: "We are arived safe"
Cons: "The attitude of the crew it was bad and the comportment very ignorant"
Pros: "Good for an LCC."
Cons: "Termiinal 2 at Dubai is very overcrowded. As I bought this flight as part of an Emirates ticket, it would have been nice if a meal would have been included."
Pros: "Nothing. Zero."
Cons: "We stood on a bus for 15+ minutes waiting to board. We boarded, crowded plane with small space, and now my luggage is lost. I paid a lot of money for my business class ticket on Emirates only to have a second flight that was terrible in every way. No one seems to care where my bag may be- I am trekking in 2 days and I have NOTHING to use!! I’ve called every number I can find and emailed fly dubai- each person had shown very little care and not one person can even tell me if my bag left Dallas. Unreal."
Pros: "All the notifications"
Cons: "Your notifications"
Pros: "The service was great, punctual, helpful."
Pros: "The only thing negative on my trip is flydubai terminal"
Cons: "Simply that was a bus .... not a plane!"
Cons: "No food or entertainment."
Pros: "Excellent service all around, much better than the Air Asia experience. Excellent complimentary food packet was a surprise."
Cons: "Entertainment system is a mess. Even if paid service, the touch screens do not work and worse, they are energy inefficient with the screens HOT to the touch. Doubt they make any revenue to recoup the investment."
Pros: "Nothing at all"
Cons: "No food or beverages. So tight airplane"
Cons: "I had an emergency and wanted to delay my flight, but they asked me to pay for a penalty that was almost the tickets prices."
Pros: "Flight left exactly on time."
Cons: "Why give out boarding zones if the Kathmandu flights are all a mad scramble anyway?"
Cons: "The restrooms at in Dubai are terrible"
Pros: "Comfort, professionalism, food"
Cons: "While passengers were clearly notified about new lap top/ tablet ban, many passengers appeared to disregard and still showed up with these items as carry on in Dubai? All the boxing and shrink wrapping apparently caused a 1.5 hour boarding delay, which isn"t fair to those who follow instructions. Even the pilot blamed American government? Why can"t people listen.? This rule was well publicized in media."
Pros: "Cheap flight"
Cons: "Very uncomfortable"
Pros: "To be honest nothing in fly Dubai are good"
Cons: "I the foods are very expensive."
Pros: "Option to buy food. 30 mins only from Dubai to Doha"
Cons: "Delay in take off by about 30 mins. Ground services in Dubai sucks and you are treated like low/no class passengers if you fly with other airlines apart from emirates. Transport bus from Term 3 to Term 2 via Term 1 make extra stops as per driver pleases. This would be last time I go via Dubai on other airlines non Emirates. Toilets in Term 2 also sucks and would rather go on the plane...."
Pros: "It was cheap"
Cons: "The cabin was swealtering while we were waiting to take off for an hour. No explanation as to why there was a delay. No complementary drinks, even in that heat. At least for short flight the entertainment was free."
Cons: "You had to pay for water and they left the lights on all most of the evening flight. Rough flight."
Cons: "They wouldn't give even a cup of water, have to buy everything. Ridiculous!"
Cons: "The hostesses and host in coach were not friendly."
Cons: "Never again low cost Poor seating, no food"
Pros: "La vista del cielo"
Cons: "No se por q fuimos a Dubai sin aviso creo q e una falta súper grabe 3 horas por “gasolina” creo que es una falta de respeto. Pude escoger otra aerolínea"
Pros: "Liked the blanket, the nice leather seats. I enjoyed the chicken actually and the breakfast roll."
Cons: "This is something that has happened to me on every flight/airline I have taken to India. I am sat next to some slightly older Indian nationals who I find inconsiderate. This again happened on this flight, the 'gent' next to me continually elbowed his way into my space, kicked me, fidgeted, pushed against me continually. when I asked him to stop kicking me and to move his feet back to under the seat in front of me, he tried to silence me as if I shouldn't be talking to him like that or that I had no right to be annoyed. I was in pain, couldn't sleep. He encroached into my space so that he could give his wife lots of space. Selfish. I do feel it's a cultural thing. It doesn't happen to me when I fly to other destinations and travel economy. I didn't feel safe at the end of the flight when it was taxing to the bay. Passengers turned on their phones the minute we hit the tarmac and were opening the overhead lockers and left them open even the plane was still moving at speed. I thought things were going to come crashing out. It just doens't feel save and controllled when fellow passengers do not follow instructions. I worry what would happen if there was an emergency."
Cons: "The seats are not comfortable."
Cons: "Comfort seats for tall people"
Pros: "Crew were nice"
Cons: "24 hours was before flight was delayed 50 minutes and after when I was at airport an other 1 hour and 40 minutes delay , when You have a transfer flight to take it is not serious"
Cons: "I was very disappointed for charging me one luggage - 60 euro."

Cons: "Was great fligh, no hazzle"
Pros: "Boarding was fast"
Cons: "The seats were extremely uncomfortable and the crew was kind of rude..."
Cons: "We were subjected by desk attendant Ravoni to buy a second suitcase bc he would not allow us to take our personal items. He was impolite and aggressive."
Cons: "My flight was overbooked so I was put on a flight to Almaty then Delhi and now my luggage is lost. I will never fly with Ukraine Intl. Airlines again."
Pros: "The flight from Tel Aviv followed and I had to fly to Holland to continue to Beijing. I also ordered kosher food and had to pay € 30 when the site was available for free. But in the end I was not given a kosher meal from the Netherlands to Beijing."
Cons: "They weren’t any chargers there"
Cons: "Everything was on time"
Pros: "No real complaints here. Went on 4 flights in total and all were relatively decent. The planes are old, but 3 of 4 of my planes had upgraded seats with tv screens built in, where you can plug your phone to charge. The seats are of regular comfort, nothing outstanding, but not too bad (I’ve definitely had worse). Cannot regulate AC, which is somewhat annoying, but once again, not a big deal. Did not take food options so can’t comment on that. Flight staff is more or less polite, always smiling, and will make sure you have what you need. Would probably book again with UIA if it were an option."
Cons: "No AC regulation, planes are old, and very cramped waiting spaces for bathrooms."
Cons: "It was a rip off. Surprise charges are unacceptable."
Pros: "Ther baggage policies are a Ripped off There is no customer service whatsoever. And the company is a predator, Praying on you to take money out of you,"
Cons: "I didn’t like that when I bought the ticket that says that it’s include baggage, on the way back from my trip in the airport they say that it’s including the baggage just the first way and not both ways and I would have to pay a ridiculously high amount for a suitcase to take my suitcase back homeb"
Pros: "The flight from Tel Aviv was delayed and due to the short connection and overbooking we were transferred to direct flight with El Al at no additional cost. Have arrived to Vienna 3 hrs. Earlier."
Pros: "the flight from kiev to delhi was good"
Cons: "we had a horrible wait inside the airplane it was very hot and no water was given to the passengers after the flight was delayed twice!"
Cons: "Despite the booking and web check in , we were told that the flight is overbooked and we must rebook for later flight!"
Pros: "good plane, convenient rout for the cost"
Cons: "Kayak said there is luggage included however it wasn't included only in one way! In this case the icon should say there is NO luggage and the customer will look into it. In TLV they told me my bag is small enough to take in the plane but then in the connection all of the sudden they said I have to pay 60 euro for it!! Take responsibility for decisions your company took! You are embarrassing yourself and most important- your customers. The behavior of the staff was also ugly, disrespectful, meant to put you under pressure to pay instead of trying to help and understand."
Cons: "Delay was so long . The plane wasnt even ready. Stewards were so disrespectful"
Pros: "Too short connection luggage missed the connection"
Pros: "It was a very smooth flight, lots of leg room, and attentive stewardesses."
Cons: "The plane was very chilly for some reason."
Pros: "The price"
Pros: "The planes are clean and the crew is friendly."
Cons: "We left late and the plane is older, so options were non-existent for charging phones of entertainment on the flight. Glad I brought a book. Our landing was also really rough. The crew was not great at getting people to sit down to we could take off."
Cons: "Worst planes. Rude staff."
Pros: "Boarding was short, fast and on time"
Cons: "Let people know they need to do check in before flight otherwise it costs 12 US dollars for printing boarding pass"
Cons: "That after waiting so long time for check in and they sent me to buy and pay for a seat & come back again.it’s not because 10 euro. I prefer to pay this with ticket price and not go and come.it’s make u nervous"
Pros: "It got me to my end destination and was pretty on time. Typical plane for a short flight."
Cons: "You had to pay for everything that was not water (even coffee cost extra). Staff were not very friendly and plane not well kept."
Pros: "Getting off the plane"
Cons: "Everything. This plane was most likely the same plane the Wright brothers flew upon their first flight. I am 5'4" and 104 pounds and I had a hard time fitting in the seats. Most domestic flight planes are better than this; no TV, no legroom, you had to buy drinks. The food looked like diarrhea and my grapes had mold on them. Also, the staff were rude. I will NEVER fly this airline again."
Cons: "One hour delay without notice. Had a connecting flight which I could have missed."
Cons: "everything on the flight besides water was NOT included and you were asked to pay extra money for a cup of juice or coffee. the chairs weren't comfortable at all and very dense. the airplane was old and not in a good condition. that will absolutely be my last flight with this company. I'm very disappointed."
Cons: "No reasonable space between the seats."
Cons: "There was a 1 hour delay in our flight and so we missed our connection to Amsterdam, then we had to wait in Kiev airport for 3 hours just to get a room in a hotel near the airport. Customer service is horrible, no one cares about you or for all that you are going through."
Pros: "When u buy business class ticker you expect for minimum which is far from anything' to tell about"
Cons: "Sit not close to any standard, no any entertainment at all, good is so so."

Cons: "In the first hour of the flight the stewards violent tapped me awake for random reasons and the movies where boring also take off and boarding was both off schedule"
Pros: "It's a discount airline, you get what you pay for."
Pros: "The movies"
Cons: "One stewardess was completely with a nasty attitude to several people."
Cons: "I didn't like the rescheduled of my flight 3 times! And I lost my connection flight"
Cons: "I wanted to upgrade to Business Class, so at Television Aviv airport I made the request. I was told that from TLV to KIEV they don't have Business service (which is not true) and if I wanted business from Kiev to JFK I should request it in Kiev. In Kiev they told me that I was supposed to request and pay outside the gate area. In other words I would have to go out and recheck. I would have missed my connection. You should make it more clear for people that want to upgrade."
