Pros: "The crew was very patient. The foid was very good"
Cons: "The flight was overbooked, the ground crew was horrible. Everything from checking in, customs and passport control. They were a bunch of lazy idiots"
Pros: "The entertainment was great and the crew was very friendly and helpful"
Cons: "The ability to access bathrooms after turbulence has ended"
Pros: "Noce ride. Cabin crew was very friendly and helpful"
Cons: "Not much. Maybe better food. We asked for low fat option. They served bread. If they knew food better they knew carbs equals fat. Overall it was a good flight"
Pros: "Seats were really comfortable, able to lean back further than most, with large screens and good entertainment options. Also liked that there were open areas on the plane that you could go stand up and stretch out for a while at."
Cons: "About halfway through the flight the bathrooms definitely needed cleaned. By the end of the flight they were disgusting, with toilets and sinks clogged and no tissue. I'm really surprised Emirates allowed this to happen, because everything else was great."
Pros: "The counter workers upgraded my seats to window and a better boarding group."
Cons: "Two teenage passengers were in front of us, extremely disruptive and loud the entire flight and no one from the crew addressed it or asked them to keep the noise down. Also, we were forced to check our carry on bags bc they weighed at check in- though we had already checked in online, more than 7kg!"
Cons: "It was my first flight ever. So it was perfect thank you Emirates"
Pros: "Checking-in was super simple, and speedy. All the staff I had contact with were very polite and professional"
Cons: "I had exhausted the entertainment system before I finished my first leg of the outbound journey."
Pros: "Yes I like the services and then you will have good stuff for goods"
Pros: "The ground staff in Chile. Quite organized and catered to the guests. seamless connection and baggage retrival"

Cons: "Boarding process was not nice. Secondary check up is fine but explanation would be helpful and communication from airport crew was awful."
Cons: "Did not actively watch the movie that was offered, but it seemed awful."
Pros: "Overall the crew was nice and helpful"
Cons: "I payed a full price for my flight and got the conditions almost like a low cost flight. Don't think I'll bother to pay so much money next time. not such difference...."
Pros: "The crew was courteous and pleasant. Boarding was quick. Airplane was clean. Blankets were warm. Food was good."
Cons: "Aircraft old so entertainment was not on the individual seat. Seats were hard and didn’t recline too much. Leg room was decent. Check in was horrible. 45 minute line."
Pros: "The crew was OK, food OK."
Cons: "Very old aircraft, no TV screen. The company change my seat even I order my seats weeks ago."
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: "Very smooth flight - left on time, landed early. Food was good, crew very helpful."
Cons: "I don't think the seats could get more cramped if they tried. When the person in front of me reclined all the way (which is to be expected in an overnight flight) I could barely get out of my seat - and the large person next to me was literally trapped. Entertainment system is mediocre at best - the movies are always different from what's listed, but there's generally enough of a choice. Sound isn't very good, tho."
Pros: "Food was good. Stewardess helpful. Seats fairly comfy for a long flight"
Cons: "Piece of luggage missing for 4 days. Entertainment unit horrible and lacking choices"
Pros: "the crew is very nice"
Cons: "On this flight the seats are a bit narrower and closer together. It did not have the feel of the other fights we have taken in business class el al."

flight delay there and back. rescheduled the flight a day earlier
The flight was smooth, the crew were pleasant, This plain had a reclining seats which made the flight comfortable

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."
Pros: "Booked through Kiwi.com and tried to cancel the tickets. kiwi.com is the worst ever travel agency. I wouldn't use kayak going forward, will use google flights. Thanks!"
Cons: "Stop showing results from kiwi.com and the likes."
Cons: "Seat was very uncomfortable and in-flight entertainment screen did not function properly"
Pros: "Very prompt. Nice crew."
Cons: "Comfortable enough seat could be better. Food Entertainment -there was none."
Pros: "the flight was pleasant and the airport terminal was empty. Pure joy."
Cons: "Turtle service, clumsy staff.. Long lines ups for boarding and buses.... Terrible food"
Cons: "boarding was not good, all times using buses. people inter plant from back entrance and front entrance and they meet at middle of plane with a lot of delay."
Pros: "Seats with extra leg room were good"
Cons: "You van only buy food and drinks when the crew do their service rounds of which there were 2 on a flight of nearly 6 hours. 2 toilets for over 200 customers meant long queues in the narrow corridor. Staff were very rude when I asked if I could order a drink. You can pay for entertainment which is fine but you need to have wired earphones with you."
Pros: "Staff was great. Smooth flight"
Cons: "Did not want to check my luggage and was 2 pounds over. Now my brand new bag has a 6 inch slash in it."
Pros: "Nothing much. Flight was delayed and no apology was given."
Cons: "The food situation was weird. Only some passengers were given food. Also I didn't see any selection of movies."
Pros: "The pilot was great :) I thought he was funny. The hostesses were also quite friendly"
Cons: "The food was plain. The flight was also delayed by an hour without any communication."
I liked: Helpful, informative, pleasant crew. Could be Better: Check in. Stowage space General cleanliness especially toilets. Ugh!
Pros: "New aircraft, had a VOD service in your own device, also optional paid WiFi. We were offered water during the flight. The price was good and everything went smooth."
Cons: "Security in PRG airport is done at the gate - after the duty free shops, so there's no way to go back. No toilet or water fountain at the gate area after security - only a vending machine is available and benches. You can bring liquids bought in the duty free shops only if you ask at the cashier to get it packed in a special bag. That's probably not the airlines fault, but it is something to note when departing from PRG. The check in process is also very slow, that is due to Israeli security questioning, the line gets all around the terminal."
Cons: "It was a terrible flight in most of the citiries"
Pros: "The crew was amazing and flight was comfortable. Leg room fine. They turned off lights so we could sleep."
Cons: "Seats could use a bit more padding."
Cons: "Arkia changed there flight hour and no one updated me. I almost missed the flight. It was messed"

Cons: "delay in tack off of 3 hrs without air conditioner and food"
Cons: "The flight took of right on time.The staff was very nice"
Cons: "Arkia replaced and sold the flight to other company . Seats were very very uncomfortable. the service was bad . boarding took lots of time ."
Cons: "Arkia airline was replaced by chezc low cost air lie . the gap between seats were the worst ever . the seat i front of you was on my knees . could not move the legs . boarding was late . boardinf anf disambarcking were by busses and not direct to airport !!!! low cost - no !! Its a fraud - we paid for regular Arkia flight and ended up with low low low service !!!!!"
