Pros: "The cabin crew worked hard and were extremely professional and friendly. they are to be commended for this!"
Cons: "My seat is horrible with something looks like vomit everywhere between a gap of the seat in front of me. Also the touch screen is not working, at first I pushed so hard until i hurt my finger tip, at the end I used buttons on an remote to control the screen(stupid me!!). The screen reset to an old version couple of times during the flight the crew had to reset for me( the airline should know what i'm talking about) It's a six-hour flight but the meal was literally served at 8.55pm(original time) in my section which is the last section to get food when the flight took of at 6.10pm(original time) - almost three hours into the flight. Can't believe they claimed to be number one airline in the world. If you fly to the States from thailand. Take Quatar if you want to go to the east coast or asian airlines any thing japanese or korean or even chinese airline like Hainan airline. They are all way better than this."
Pros: "The departure & arrival time. A fantastic price that included an excellent meal there and back, 30k luggage quota, entertainment that lasted throughout the duration of the flight. It just seemed seamless and felt like it didn't take that long to get there. I will definitely be catching this flight, every time I return to NZ"
Pros: "Friendly service"
Cons: "Old plane with old seats."
Pros: "Service and food"
Cons: "My husband had his backpack and a carry on when we checked in at JFK. He was not allowed. From Dubai to Manila, we saw a lot of passengers who had two or more carry on’s. The floors at Dubai airport are dirty."
Pros: "Everything is really amazing about UAE, service, amenities, entertainment options, leg room."
Cons: "Before the plan even took off for our 14+ hour flight I could tell the seat was uncomfortable, and it was going to be an issue. I don't know why this would be overlooked, as everything else was best in class, but it made for a fairly uncomfortable experience."
Cons: "one of the Lady crew member was very rude. When i asked her child meal she made a very bad face and told me that u should have booked online. I explained her i tried but couldnt book coz of may be cheap fare category. It was quite embarrassing for me :("

Pros: "Even going in economy and almost at the last seat, I almost didn't realize that!"
Pros: "We had good seats & crew were friendly, but not as good as the Sydney to Dubai crew"
Cons: "The lateness of our departure with no reason given from Dubai."
Pros: "Food, care, excellent people ."
Pros: "Sorry...pushed a button the it disappeared. Will try again... As always, returning home from an international two week trip is always thrilling but exhausting. The hours of travel seem slow. My half table of Advil PM worked wonders though. Gracious service, always willing to help myself and those seated around me. Clean bathroom facilities. Overall, I'm thrilled to be home safely."
Cons: "I picked slimly through my food. Nothing seemed too appetizing. The entertainment options were a bit difficult to navigate. Choices were a bit limited as well for a long flight."
Pros: "Service was good"
Pros: "Friendly crew and more leg room on the Emirates flights"
Cons: "Passengers that leave the bathrooms dirty with urine on the floor etc. Not sure what the airline can do about that during the flights. But for longer flights maybe a damp mop or something along those lines would be helpful."
Pros: "Leg Room"
Pros: "The service we received from crew was excellent"
Cons: "Actually we enjoyed everything about emirates"
Cons: "Seats very uncomfortable for a transatlantic flight"
Pros: "enjoyes my trip"
Pros: "E v e r y t h i n g ..... I understand now why they are the number ONE airlines in service. We travel enough to see the BIG difference. Thumbs up. Please don't change !!!!"
Cons: "I can't think of anything."
Pros: "Food was the best I ever had on Economy, seats were comfortable, enterteriment was very good, cabin crew very polite and attentious..."
Cons: "Boarding was too Long with to much security measures"
Pros: "Times were great! Food was decent for airline food comfortable seats great selection of movies"
Cons: "I liked everything"
Cons: "I didn't like my seat placement this time round. Was put in the seat infront of business class as no other option. Really uncomfortable."
Pros: "The delay was too long and disorganized."
Pros: "I loved the layout of the plain and its size. It can fit a lot of people and you can definitely see that Emirates prides in their airline."
Cons: "We were sitting in row 36 (D,E,F,G). Everything was fine until we realized there was a leak in the plane. On take off and landing the A/C leaked all over our clothes and seats. When we reacted and stood up, the flight attendant screamed at us and told us to sit down. Afterwards, the flight attendant asked us what was wrong and she had realized that the AC had leaked on us. All she did was put towels on our seat and walked away. For at least 10 minutes I had to raise a towel to catch the water from dripping onto our heads during lift off and landing."
Cons: "No proper communication provided on gate about the delay. Meal voucher was given very late and hence did not make any sense. We were completely uncertain about our onward travel since no information was available till we reached Dubai which was very frustrating."
Pros: "Bumped up to first class"
Pros: "The air conditioning worked properly"
Cons: "You asked for a drink and they never return☹️"
Cons: "No toilets in departure lounge! Delay of 30 minutes sitting with hardly any oxygen in cabin thought I was going to pass out. My last flight with Emirates."
Pros: "Barcelona to Dubai flight - the flight attendants were personable, helpful, and very courteous. In-flight service was frequent with many stops to check on the passengers of a very full flight. Wonderful and attentive service, even when juggling such a large number of passengers. I was very impressed with the work ethic of this crew."
Cons: "The flight attendants on the Dubai to Singapore flight were surprisingly unhelpful. It was a mostly empty flight and yet during this flight, there were very infrequent beverage service. When I activated my call flight attendant button, no one stopped by. This included at least 3 different flight attendants passing me, some more than a few times, and not once did anyone stop. After waiting for 10 - 15 minutes, I turned off the light and went to the galley part of the plane, only to find a group of flight attendants socializing. I requested a drink and it was handed to me without the attendant every making eye contact as the attendant still was facing and engaged in their conversation. This is not the first time I have experienced this on an Emirates flight so I think the staff training may need to be reinforced. Business class service on Emirates is quite good. But I fly both Economy and Business class. The experiences in Economy did affect my decision on which airline I generally fly with for business class travel."
Pros: "Great experience"
Pros: "Flight staff good attitude, condition of airplane"
Cons: "On the 15 hour flight Dubai to LAX, Only one hot meal was served, plus later, a sandwich. I'm a thin girl and barely found the food sufficient - imagine the men!"
Cons: "The service that Emirates provided."
Pros: "See above. Great airline all around. We travel a lot and overall it is one of the two best in the world on almost all counts."
Cons: "For large number of passengers, boarding is impossibly slow. I don't understand why, after boarding the priority passengers, airline don't board the rest of us from the back of the plane to the front. Doing it the other way makes us stumble across the front seated passengers who are busy stowing their carry-ones. This causes a bottleneck in boarding. Also, there are too many checks on us, which also slows things down. Also, Emirates advertises: one carry-on item of less than 15 pounds. On this flight I would say that at least 75% of the passengers violated this with large and multiple carry-ons. This is unfair to those of us who try to go by the rules."
Pros: "Amenities and food, customer service."
Pros: "A lot of space under the seats, good food and beverage."
Cons: "I didn't like the fact that some passengers can get drunk during the flight and that they can drink as much alcohol as they can. On the road behind me there were three Arabic guys who were really loud, noisy and impolite during the whole flight. One of them was constantly punching my seat the whole flight and even when I asked him politely to stop he didn't. Instead, he smiled at my face. I told the stewardess about that, but she also didn't do anything. She continued bringing them beers. The floor under their feet was full of empty beer cans. They had at least 20 cans of beer, and after that some wine. I think you should put some restrictions on the allowed alcohol amount per passenger. Wifi is never working!"
Pros: "staff were organized and prompt"
Cons: "I would definitely have vegetarian food. 30% of population is vegetarian"
Pros: "comfortable seat, friendly staff"
Cons: "I had no vegetarian dinner"
Pros: "MUCH SPACE WITH ALMOST EMPTY AIRCRAFT ."
Cons: "Boarding and airport were terrible. Needed to walk 2 KM from one gate to another, only to board bus back to original location. Bus needed to make multiple trips to accommodate all passengers, this took one hour for boarding."
Cons: "They changed my seat at the gate, will be filing a claim to Turkish airlines."
Cons: "Delay of 1 hour, waited on the plain extra hour."
Cons: "At boarding they went in two stages. First stage they called people to board by category first people that needed more time then families with small children etc. HOWEVER, the put all of us in an intermediate room and the door to the gate was closed. They passed everyone so when the gate door opened everyone were trying to get to the gate and there was no order. That was stupid to say the least. Turkish could have waited the couple of minutes needed to get the gate open!!! and save the hassle!"
Cons: "Once again they were late to arrive to my connection (with them), we had to run to the gate, still had to wait for boarding, and when i got to Tel-Aviv i found out that one of my suitcases was left behind !!!"
Cons: "They forced me to check my cabin bag. It met their dimension requirements but said weighed too much (what does that have to do with space in cabin). They they lost the bag so I'm on vacation with no clothes."

Cons: "Movies didn't work well"
Pros: "The landing."
Cons: "My special meal had been canceled."

Cons: "ذهبت لتاجيل موعد الطياره بنفس يوم السفر فقالوا لي يجب دفع غرامه 154 دولار سالت الموظفه كم التذكره الجديده قالت 130 دولار قلت لها على النت 105 دولار قالت صحيح ذهبت وشريت تذكره عوده جديده عن النت بعد ان سرت 4 ساعات الى المطار ذهابا وايابا لتغير الطائره"
Cons: "The company lost my baggage"
Pros: "Quick and nice"
Pros: "To small area for passengers after security before boarding"
Cons: "Most concerning aspect is security. Very unlikely that I will choose Turkish airlines in the future"
Pros: "Security at the Ataturk airport. Airtight and curious. No wonder terrorists could only strike outside."
Cons: "Departure time is always ten tative with Turkish. Even though they clearly were expecting a late departure, passengers weren't notified. When boarding time was pushed back 30 minutes, it was already 22 minutes overdue (and it started much later then eve n the pushed back time). Terrible standards/"
Cons: "Checked bag got ruined, servie was terrible"
Cons: "My Luggage did not make it, I don't have any information about it :) Lot of people did not get their Luggage"

Pros: "Plan crew , pilots , services on plan and cleaning"
Cons: "Land crew , airport , and airline disorganized I wanted to complain about crew member , But she will not give her name or ID number, And when I snap a picture she calls the police , Her bag was inside her shirt and she will not revile"
Pros: "The flight attendant was welcoming at the door and the service was done efficiently."
Cons: "The tv monitor at the airport never bother to inform the passengers which was the boarding gate. After asking other passengers we deducted the gate number. The boarding was like a cattle drive bordering on a stampede since Aegean Airlines didn’t bother to divide passengers by groups, so people rushed to be first in line. We waited standing with our carryons for over 45minutes. Nobody knew what was happening or when they will start boarding. Naturally, when we finally got on board people where blocking the aisle because Aegean didn’t bother to board from back to front as it is usually done. The flight attendants were sweet but their English was almost unintelligible. My brother works and I worked for major airlines and have never seen anything so disorganized and unprofessional."
Pros: "Everything was on-time, easy, and fairly quick."
Cons: "The legroom."
Cons: "We have a delay. Alrhoght we order kosher food- we werent in the list- so there was no food for us. At the end one of the passagers didnt wanted to eat so they gave us his portion. Was cold and the feeling of been forget is bad. Specially when you are traveling with a 2y old. That is hungry abd tired. Very disapointed."
Pros: "- Crew service was pleasant"
Cons: "- Misinformed about luggage included in the ticket, had to pay extra money. - Flights delays"
Pros: "Although they were at the right size snd weight. I was skipped dinner."
Cons: "Disembarkation via buses. Not great."
Pros: "The employees were very helpful and friendly. Food was not worse than what one can expect of an airline (about as “good” as a US airline’s, which is not a high standard to beat). The plane seemed recent and clean."
Cons: "The major problem was the lack of detail on their luggage policy. I am sure they can show the text clearly warning me about the fees for bringing a piece of luggage per person, but I missed it. Therefore, they charged me $35 per person for their registered bag. That’s probably how they “beat” their competitors’ prices. If you include the fees in your calculation, this might still be a good option, but make sure that you read the fine print, or be prepared to pay as “extra” what many airlines offer as basic."
Pros: ".usually I like this company."
Cons: "There was 50% of the flight with a feeling that the is no air. It was suffocating."
Pros: "Plenty of legroom. Professional crew. They offered food on a relatively short flight. Very pleasant experience!"
Pros: "Same as above"

Pros: "We enjoy flying with Aegean, very good treatment for families with kids."
Pros: "on time, they were aware that we came from a connection and took care of everything. pleasant flight."
Pros: "Quick departure after boarding"
Pros: "I love flying Aegan - it is always comfortable and pleasant. Due to my own mistake I didn't order a kosher/vegetarian meal, which is why I rated the food "N/A". On flights this short there are no entertainment options which is fine I suppose :) overall, this is one of my favorite airlines to fly! Thanks!"
Cons: "too many fussy babies crying and screaming."
Cons: "Delay 1 hour and 20 minutes at departure"
Pros: "Great experience"
Cons: "They should work on their airport staff a little."
Cons: "it has nothing to do with aegean air but security at the flight was poor - we found out that by mistake my friend left a knife in his hand bag and it was not found untill we unpacked and saw it at home!!!"
Pros: "On time. Space. Great team."
Cons: "after boarding, we were stuck sitting in the plain for 2 hours because of a technical problem, and Aegean was trying to use the situation to sell us water! no water was given to us, also- no useful information about the status of the problem."
Pros: "Friendly staff."
Cons: "Warm soda."

Pros: "the food"
Pros: "Quick and direct flight."
Cons: "There wasn't any food or snacks. The airport was a bit chaotic."
Pros: "crew was supportive. food was ok. Check in on line was good. We could choose our seats. We flew with Aegean several times already. they are a reliable company."

Cons: "Same as on the flight to Larnaca"
Pros: "Clean Elegant Polite"
Cons: "Only wish it was in a desent hour and not in the middle of the night"
Cons: "The only complaint I had was that it was very warm on the flight (and I usually get cold on flights), and in the seats we had there weren't fans above the seats. A few rows up they had fans, so apparently you have to pay extra for air... This wouldn't be a big deal on a short domestic flight, but for an international flight it was a long time to be uncomfortable!"
Pros: "Crew were excellent"
Cons: "Old aircraft. Uncomfortable seats in economy. Entertainment screens old and almost impossible to watch - watched my iPhone! No mobile phone charger."
Cons: "When its rain we shouldn’t walk to the air plain"
Pros: "Professional crew. Good simple check in."
Cons: "I paid for the preferred seat .and i found that people beside me didnt pay anything when i asked them ,"

Cons: "Head support for 6 feet plus people on seats would be good"
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "KLM lost one piece of my luggage"
Pros: "the trip was excellent and comfortable. LOved the windows that shaded out rather than the having to pull down the plastic blind. entertainment on board top notch screen huge One hostess , Helen was absolutely fantastic and the best I ve had on my many trips. I will recommend KLM whenever I can"
Cons: "the headrest is hard. Apart from that- all was fine"
Pros: "Checkin 1a at Schiphol had long lines, and no seperate counters for just bag drop. My family and I had to wait for 50 mins, to do a bag drop which in,y lasted 1 min! Flight was delayed, without proper announcements."
Cons: "Seat pitch could've been more. At least let us know via Whatsapp that the plane is delayed, or at which belt the bags would come out. This basic info was lacking."
Cons: "Lost a single baggage item, a car seat. Critical for us to leave the airport, and delayed us for over an hour upon arrival. Gave us a loaner car seat that barely fit our child."
Pros: "The earphones for out two seats only worked intermittently, but the Purser, Lee-Ann handled it professionally and pleasantly. That was the only disappointment in an otherwise pleasant flight"
Cons: "The earphones could have worked!"
Cons: "The website I booked on and the Delta phone line on the printed ticket said that I had baggage when it turns out that I did not according to the check in staff and they made me pay."
Pros: "Crew was amazing, seats were comfortable with enough leg space even without choosing extra space seats. It was my childhood dream come true to fly with KLM. It was really an exciting trip for me, just that it was short."
Cons: "Well, for me everything was on point. Those who have never travelled with KLM, I would encourage them to do so and I’m sure they will not regret."
Cons: "I called for a crew member 5 times and waited 25 minutes for anyone to help me with just some water. I had to get up and go to the very back of the plane to ask for some water. The plane was hot and no air to be found. This was all after we had to get back off the plane before takeoff. It was terrib"
Pros: "Nice seats. Only seats with a row of 2, which is what I wanted,"
Cons: "Lost all our bags so couldn’t ski"
Pros: "Seating is tight. The crew was great !"
Cons: "As we landed we had to wait on the plane for an hour and a half because another plane (Spirit) was in our “parking spot.” This made it very difficult for people and connecting flights."
Cons: "Need more leg room!!! Larger meals needed."
Pros: "The flight arrived a few minutes early."
Cons: "The plane was extremely old and in poor repair. The seats were extremely close together. The inflight entertainment system, wifi and passenger electric outlets were all non-functional. Even the wastebin in the lavatory was full and an extra bag was put on the floor."
Pros: "The crew!!"
Pros: "Crew where awesone and the choice of entertainment was fantastic"
Cons: "Seats way to close together"
Pros: "Was happy to pay extra 45.5 pounds for laugages which was hidden"

Cons: "Very late arrival"
Pros: "Very friendly staff"
Pros: "Airlines issue"
Cons: "Profiling certain customers"
Pros: "Everything. A truly faultless experience!"
Cons: "Without any explanation the plane I was due to go to Istanbul on at 11.30 was not available. I had to wait for a small plane coming from Edinburgh then wait for it to be emptied of passengers and cleaned. This meant we were over 2 hours late into Istanbul. No explanation or apology. I then missed my next flight in Istanbul and had to purchase another ticket. I cannot believe that air passengers are treated in this way!!! I will follow this up with KLM when I go home from my holiday."
Cons: "The Guy who had an accident when boarding causing a delay. Also I didn’t like the wait fir checking as passengers with children went before business class and should be after."
Pros: "Crew was courteous and polite! Entertainment system had some great movies at no additional cost."
Cons: "Poor communication between delta, KLM and Air France meant that I couldn’t check in online and get a digital boarding pass. Furthermore I couldn’t use the check-in kiosks because my name was listed as Reidmr instead of Reid, which meant that my boarding pass did not match my passport. Overall this caused unnecessary delays that were compounded by the fact that I couldn’t use my TSA precheck. My main problem on the plane was that I had to struggle to get water served to me. It’s always so dry on planes and I would have liked to be able to get more than one tiny glass of water at a time. Also, would have loved a window at my window seat. Plus no WIFI!?"
Pros: "Easy Boarding"
Pros: "That we didn’t crash"
Cons: "Everything! The crew was rude, no entertainment whatsoever, late boarding, late departure and bad experience with the check in process both in app and on website."
Pros: "Arriving more or less on time"
Cons: "Crew is awful. Disrespectful desinterested in customers find themselves very important. No service mentality whatsoever. No respectful airline would hire such arrogant self centered personalities in a service role"
Pros: "On time."
Cons: "No negative"
Cons: "Pet was left behind at vacation destination as pet's reservation (made and confirmed through KLM) was not found at check in. Waiting for Customer Care to help get pet home and take responsibility for situation and getting no response. Very dissapointed, considering law suit."
Pros: "I was upgraded to Buisness so, no complaints"
Cons: "No Marlboro light cigarettes on the duty free shopping cart"
Cons: "One of the senior stewardesses we're very rude. Whether it's her personal opinion or KLM's policy, it's unreasonable to think that a 3 years old child could or should hold her pipi over 20 minutes, while they slowly and inefficiently trying to give out food. Several parents were there with the request to let us through to the toilet with small children and she smiled in our face and said "no, we will finish first and than you can go". She might be not fit for the job anymore, but KLM can't afford this kind of treatment."
Pros: "The crew were really helpful since I am a short person in putting my luggage away in the overhead compartment and attentive to everyone's needs. I am a fussy eater and don't really like airplane food but the food was actually really nice. We was given plenty of snacks and drinks in between meals as well. There was plenty of programmes to choose from to keep me entertained."
Cons: "The seats in economy were a little too small for a 12 hour flight"
Pros: "Night flight so no entertainment allowed sleeping"
Cons: "Kosher food could be improved"
Pros: "Flight attendants were friendly, but they only had limited resources to work with."
Cons: "Worst aircraft I have been on in years. No wifi or entertainment, no power outlets, only bad wine/beer for a 3+ hour flight is mediocre at best..."
Pros: "Flight crew on flight from Amsterdam to Cape Town were probably the most friendly and enthusiastic I've experienced and no, they were not all young. The plane was spotless throughout the flight. They were always coming around with water and juice and they genuinely seemed to care about all the passengers. The Flight back crew were just the opposite. More like the old lazy farts you get on the American carriers or BA or QF long haul. Whoo have been there for the long haul and should have stopped ages ago."
Cons: "The Entertainment images on the screens promoted Beauty and the Beast, Batman Lego movie but neither were on the system! Food quality was rubbish"
Pros: "Very friendly and the food and drinks never stopped and no additional charges, a very nice experience over the bargain airlines, free in-flight movies, and entertainment, no cost."
Cons: "No complaints."
Cons: "Staff seemed confused and would not let us seat at our assigned seats which we picked in order to accommodate our baby. Instead they put us in an even worse spot and decided to ignore the people that took out seats and left them be."
Pros: "Small seats"
Cons: "Flight overcrowded"
Cons: "Them actually refunding my flight when I couldn't legally travel due to COVID lockdowns."
Pros: "Everything. Food was amazing, crew was very courteous."
Pros: "It was a direct flight to my destination"
Cons: "Check-in took 1 hour and 30 mins. Single Check in desk for economy and business, long line. Flight went late by 50 mins on departure"
Cons: "Too little leg room"
Cons: "I wanted to note that while screaming at gate D1 the stuff was beyond horrible. Lazy to talk, a lady who was on the screaming machine kept making nasty comments, really inappropriate addressing foreigners and people who speak Bulgarian. I found it highly disturbing, border line harassing. You can’t work customer service and be such a nasty grumpy person. Everywhere in the world that attitude won’t be allowed, or sanctions must apply. The lady who was collecting money for the checked bag was extremely rude and lazy. Almost kicked me out for not paying for my checked bag online. Excuse me? Why is she there then? The flight was fine. However, the flight attendance slipped the last 2 rows with drinks.

Pros: "food was ok"
Cons: "not polite. no leg space at all compared to other airlines and worst of all they made me put my only backpack under the seat and be uncomfortable, where most people have 2 carry-ons large size and no one told them to check the bag for free so that there will be space on the overhead compartment"

Cons: "My luggage is lost."
Cons: "Too small place for legs in the cabin for such a long flight. Very uncomfortable"
Pros: "We were just 10-15 people on the plane and everyone has its own row of seats. A nice sandwich + soft drink/wine + coffee/tea was provided quickly after take off. Then the lights were dimmed so the people could rеst for few hours till landing. Nice prompt service."
Cons: "Uncomfortable weared off seats and no entertainment system."

Cons: "Flight has delay of 50min - technical problem. I missed other my flights Bulgaria air booked a new reservation and I had to wait 6h on Berlin airport."
Pros: "Horrible. Don't book with this ariline."
Cons: "Although we were checked in, the flight was oversold and prior to boarding at the gate, they told us we can't board the flight. Our luggage had to be also taken off the flight and we were not given a flight till the next day. As a result we missed our connections, had to book an additional hotel last minute. Bulgaria Air had no even a customer service desk at the airport!!!!"
Pros: "It was an excellent flight experience."
Cons: "Improve the sandwich?"
Pros: "Got me to my destination safely and on time"
Cons: "No one told me why or how long the flight would be delayed. I got at the airport at 9am for a 12:45pm flight, the plane didn't take off till 9:30pm. Air Bulgaria didn't update Barcelona Airport so everyone had to assume the flight could take off any minute and spend a long day at the gate. Avoid Bulgaria Air."
Pros: "The crew was friendly, the plane was cool."
Pros: "They were on time, free drink and foot no chargebo"
Cons: "No movie screen"
Pros: "We wish companies who share would advertise who they are partners with & that the other companies have your information when using their airline. We finally found the representative to Air Belin to check us in at the Frankfurt Airport to find out we will be flying with Balkan Airline at another terminal. The same thing happened on the way back. Luckily we arrived at the airport early both times to make sure we were flying. But getting information from one airline to another is hard when your booking # & flight number is different for each airline, & when you call the airline they tell you to go to the airport as they cannot help you over the phone. The flight was find but to board is another."
Cons: "Crew was not sympathetic towards mom with baby. No help with stroller. Airport agent decided to add stroller as checked luggage causing confusion and distress during short connection window to next flight."
Pros: "- on time (even earlier) - fast and convenient boarding - nice and friendly staff"
Pros: "On time and nice crew"
Pros: "On time departure and arrival. Friendly service."
Pros: "The crew are friendly and professional, I was greeted and given instructions when I missed a connecting flight due to mechanical issues with the first flight. I was given new boarding ticket for the next day's flight along with vouchers for the hotel and meals. The hotel was inside the airport and had a late check out and I was able to keep my carry on luggage in the room for most of the day."
Cons: "Turned the face value for the meal vouchers were way to low and was not enough to cover a very basic meal therefore I had to cover the difference."
Pros: "Crew was excellent. Aircraft comfortable. Good value fare"
Cons: "Plane was boarding but in the pre-security area the monitors said check in while inside the buses were loading to take passengers to the plane. It was a case of hurry up and wait. The bus was hot and the wait long. In the plane waiting for take off was unhealthily hot with no fresh air for at least 25 minutes. Also the check in process was bad. All the counters had monitors disposing RyanAir but it turns out you could check in for Bulgaria Air at most counters."
Pros: "Very pleasant overall"
Pros: "It's a very small distance flight but the crew was very nice"
Cons: "Don't have much choice in drink or food"
Pros: "The first leg, Madrid to Vienna, was great. Check-in and flight crew were friendly. Check-in line was very long though. Took almost an hour due to some passengers adjusting the weight in their bags."
Cons: "The second leg, Vienna to Sophia, was not smooth at all. I did not get a boarding pass for it when I checked in at The beginning in Madrid. At Vienna airport, no one knew where I could get the boarding pass. They sent back and forth between terminals and between airlines check in counters. Finally Austrian airlines issued the boarding pass. My bag did not arrive in Sophia. Two other passengers, who had also transferred, did not receive their luggage either."
