Cons: "6 OURS LATE LOUSY COMPANY"
Cons: "Hello, After I ordered this flight it was canceled by Israir airlines. I was ordering with another company (TK), and I thought that’s my order with Kayak canceled. A few days before the schedule the flights back and my company made a new reservation for me. When I got to airport i understood that I have two reservations, which it’s mean that we payed twice. I don’t know if you can do something about it, but I expect that you will make an effort to give me my money back. Thanks, Itzhak Ashkenazi"
Cons: "No food served unless u buy. No papers were given for visa so had to wait longer at airpirt after landibg."
Pros: "Nothing special"
Cons: "After the purchase via Kayak I found that the Israir site sell that flight fir $100 less. I consider it a fraud. While chat with Kayak (actually, Priceless) staff was easy, communication withIsrair was terrible. Until the check-in in the airport I didn't know whether the price includes sending a checked bag. Nobody was able to tell me this. Moreover, Priceless representative triet to convince me that the price doesn't include checked bag, while it did. So, I would find myself traveling with carry-on only, and that's unjustified. There is no possibility to do onlibe check-in."
Cons: "Huge line , no food , staff not nice , delay . Thats about it , simply dont fly israir"
Pros: "Clean and well maintained aircraft. The crew was helpfull and correct. The flight was smooth. Leather seats."
Cons: "Got a snadwich and a water bottle. Although the flight was only two and a half hours."
Cons: "Chairs and cabin crew attitude mainly Israeli representative"
Cons: "The flight was an hour late The airplane wasn't of "Israir" with israeli pilots but "travel service" airplane (It is important to Israelis)"
Cons: "The color of the carpet of the airplan"
Pros: "Every thing was on time , the stuff was piloted"
Cons: "You should pay attention to detail like it was an night flight but you wrote 08;45 instead of 20:45 which is confusing"
"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."

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 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"
