Cons: "The company lost my baggage"
Pros: "the food is great, very good multimedia system"
Pros: "comfort"
Pros: "The crew on the flight were very nice"
Cons: "As our first flight got delayed, me and 28 other pallengers flying to israel told the airline agents that we would miss our connection flightfrom turkey to israel. The supervisor assured us that we have nothing to worry about, as the second plane would wait as we are many passengers.however when we landed in turkey the connection flight had already left without us. When trying to speak to turkish airline representatives about getting a new flight, they were super UNhelpful, we waited in very long lines and were required so go to a few different parts of the airport to get a new ticket, a process that was not friendly at all and very frustrating. After about 2 hours of waiting on lines, i got a flight that required me to wait 7 hours in the airport and measley voucher for a very small fast food meal. When i asked to be admitted to the lounge (as i waited 7 hours in the airport due to the airlines mistake), they did not agree to grant me access. When i asked to at least get the wifi code from the lounge so i can tell my familly that i am stuck on turkey, this was also rejected. While waiting in the airport, i spoke to many other people on other flights who had been stuck in the airport under very simillar circumstances, some even worse than mine. I also have many friends who have experiences simillar experiences with turkish airlines. If you are looking for a reliable flight, that will get you to your destination on time and will help you out when a problem occurs, Turkish airlines is deffinetelly NOT the flight for you. I personally will never fly with them again after the way i was treated."
Pros: "Crew were very nice and professional."
Cons: "The flight from Istanbul to TLV was scary. The Pilot hit the brakes half in the middle of the take off due to a "technical error". It was very scary, even the flight attendant was in panic. Plus, the food was uneatable. Hope to never fly with Turkish Air again."
Pros: "Aside from the crew and their patience, nothing"
Cons: "Everything aside from the crew"
Pros: "Low prices & generally good service and entertainment"
Cons: "This airline used to be excellent. Now, the prices have been going up and the standards down. Service not as good, food not as tasty, plentiful and varied, crew not as warm and attentive. Instabul airport was the usual chaos, which does not add to the experience for transfers. Also: boarding started late and of course was not done and time and since we lost our slot we were further delayed taking off. That made the transfer time even less and the situation more stressful."
Pros: "Excellent and cooperative staff. It was a smooth flight."
Pros: "Comfortable, tasty"
Cons: "The flight was delayed in 40 mins Our entertainment system didn't work"
Cons: "Several TVs were not working. While some were repaired the TV for my viewing did not work. Though it was set right it failed raw weal times."

Pros: "The seat was good"
Cons: "The crew was not at all good, I had to call them so many times for one thing, not at all managed well"
Pros: "See above"
Cons: "See above"
Cons: "Except the bad treatment in Istanbul connection to Tel Aviv which makes me reconsidering flying with the Turkish Air lines I have nothing serious to complain"
Cons: "The Turkish Airlines JFK airport staff was among the most disorganized, rude, unhelpful group of staff I've ever encountered. I will never book with this company again."
Pros: "Had no idea the Turks ran such a top program that to me was superbly close to my experiences with Emirates."
Cons: "Always delays with this airline! The service is poor and they do not even hide their hate for israelíes ."
Pros: "As compared to other intl flts I think leg room should be improved. Secondly the tv module system has problems in both leg of flts the system was jammed and would not go to next step. Very limited choice of Indian movies"
Pros: "A paid a fair price for a magical flying metal bird to take me across the world to my final destination."
Cons: "I did not enjoy reading some persons review about their phone dying and how it was Turkish Airlines fault for not providing a USB port to charge it and because of that they were unable to call their family and let them know they were safe. Reading that review was the worst part of my experience. Plus, maybe a 10% off discount next time would be nice."

The airline has lost my luggage.

Pros: "Food was great, seat was amazing"
Cons: "Boarding was done by bus and it took too long and it want comfortable"
Pros: "Good movie selection"
Cons: "Multiple delays for my flight. First the departure was delayed which I know can happen. Then we boarded and sat for over an hour before take off. Captain made up a story about the plane needed gas and said we would take off in 15 minutes. An hour and 15 minutes later we finally took off."
Pros: "Some on crew lovely. Others terrible, bitter people, not at all suited for customer service."
Cons: "Disgusting food. Price gouging for checked baggage. Surly attitudes."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "It was over an hour late with little information about why. The gate wasn't shared until the last minute. Boarding was awful and confusing. We were stuck sitting at the gate for a long time with no air and the crew didn't deserve the last ten rows any water. The luggage also took forever to get onto the belt. Overall bad"
Cons: "Flight to Lisbon late. Missed connection Now have 10 hour delay"
Pros: "The crew was really nice"
Cons: "The food and proving more snacks and drinks"
Pros: "Really great"
Cons: "Need entertainment"
Pros: "Flight was on time, crew friendly on airport and flight. Plane was clean and sits were ok."
Cons: "The food could have been better."
Pros: "the crew did really made sure we had what we needed."
Cons: "Should have made an announcement that the 3g cellular coverage was turned on. Went on in the middle of the flight and had no idea. My phone was in the overhead bin and I thought it was off. When I landed I had an outrageous fee. Should be given a choice to use it or not."
Cons: "Not missing our connection due to delays."
Pros: "The crew was really good and attentive"
Cons: "The boarding was a little chaotic"
Cons: "Good flight, on time. Service ok. Captain did a good job communicating. Nice touch with wine at dinner."
Pros: "Entertainment was fine"
Cons: "On my ticket I selected the lacto-ovo vegetarian meal and I never received it. I told the flight attendant and he said “we don’t have any more, chicken or fish”. I said “I am a vegetarian” and he gave me a tiny salad, a bread roll, and a chocolate mousse. I was very hungry as I hadn’t eaten in 9 hrs"
Cons: "Checked bag fee was expensive at $120 per bag. For the two of us bags cost $240. The plane boarded late this departed and arrived late. Otherwise a very good flight. Very comfortable, all Amenities worked, the plane was clean and the staff accommodating."
Pros: "The plane was fairly new, clean, and comfortable seats."
Cons: "A better selection of the main meals in business class."
Cons: "The flight wad late becsuse of the immigration."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Better service, comfy seats with recline and entertainment"
Pros: "Encouraged to take the pillows home they were nice"
Cons: "Headphone jacks that work would have been nice. 6.5hr flight without sound! The crew disappeared and would only give half cups of water when asked for. ALCOHOL not just wine and warm beer."
Pros: "In flight crew is really nice and respectful, seats were comfortable, clean bathrooms, in flight entertainment is good."
Cons: "Boarding at Lisbon airport was one of the worst experiences. Passengers were asked to line up at least 30 minutes before boarding started and it was hot in the terminal. As boarding started, passengers were split into groups by boarding zones...premium passengers boarded first as expected, then people with small bags. This is where the problem was because a group of four passengers who had one small bag (that could fit under seat) were allowed to go before passengers in boarding zones A/B. The whole idea is people who could fit bags under their seat would board first, but the tap team made a mess and allowed many passengers with large bags in as well. I was one of the last ones to be boarded and stranded on the line for over 40 minutes with my backpack...after traveling for a month and being delayed in Rome, last thing you want is stupid mistakes like this to cause you stress."
Pros: "Service was good and the food was better than average."
Cons: "Paying extra for business class so you can sleep just isn't worth it with TAP. We had an older plane, showing its age, and the seats did not go completely flat. So, I kept slipping down and my feet jammed into the seat in front of me."
Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "One of my checked bags never arrived. It has been a week and I still don't have my bag."
Pros: "Nice paid business class upgrade"
Cons: "Seat 1F gets hit quite often during service"
Pros: "The staff were somewhat helpful, and fairly friendly"
Cons: "The seats for a 5-hour flight couldn’t recline. The plane was freezing, there was no entertainment on the flight, and the seating wasn’t evenly distributed. There were many economy rows with only one person, then rows right next to that full with three people. The food wasn’t good either."
Cons: "The marked delay"
Pros: "Average"
Cons: "Theo lost my luggage the plane was full of dust"
Cons: "The flight was delayed 20 mins"
Pros: "business class was great seat comfortable the lounge was very nice"
Cons: "Food on plane ok wish had more choices"
Cons: "Selected to check my hand luggage due to full flight . No reason at all for this at all."
Cons: "Our flight leaving Boston was delayed by 2 hours due to a mechanical issue. So, we missed our connection in Lisbon to Venice (our final destination). We were rerouted from Lisbon to Rome and then to Venice, turning our 2 leg journey into a 3 leg flight. We were offered just 16 euros worth of food vouchers for our trouble. We asked for lounge access because missing our connection meant we had to cool our heels in the Lisbon airport for 3 hours until our flight to Rome took off. We were told we'd have to pay for the lounge! Then, our flight to Rome was delayed. We stood at the gate for 40 minutes past boarding time. No staff even announced that the plane was delayed or how long we should expect to wait. When we finally got to Rome, we had 10 minutes to make our connection to Venice. We lost an entire day in Venice."
Pros: "the crew"
Cons: "the flight hours."
Pros: "Plane and comfort"
Cons: "Food and entertainment needs to be better. The transfer over to cologne from Portugal was a bit hectic due to customs and we just made it in time for our flight. Need a better system to verify the passports."
Pros: "Crew waa super attentive & friendly"
Cons: "Entertainment was lacking Movies were on only certain times You were not able to pause or stop Audio was bad"
Pros: "Very pleasant flight."
Cons: "We had to pay for a check in luggage fee. Then flight was delayed for about an hour. The gate number change so we had to keep on checking to see what gate it was to be. They keeping on changing the delayed time so it end up being nearly two hours before we got on the plane. I was very disappointed that we didn't get where we needed to be on time. Our hour and 45 minute flight end up just wasting time waiting for the plane. They could of at least refund our check in bag fee for the inconvenient."
Pros: "I don't know. We weren't able to make out flight. We booked 6 months in advance through Easyjet. Our flight time was 7:45. Sometime between then and our flight, they changed the time to 6:20 without informing us. We found out when we went to check in and our flight time was different. This caused us to miss our flight. We tried to get a refund and they denied changing anything even though we have documentation."

Pros: "Crew was great."

Pros: "Love it!! I can't wait to fight again"
Pros: "The captain and the crew were excellent."

Cons: "See above"
Pros: "Latency is a big problem with TAP. Had two flights and bothe were late with very unpleasant Result for me, missed next flight."
Pros: "Flight Time was short and arrival and departure times excellent."
Cons: "Could have had more recent movies and more variety"
Pros: "Basically on time and the employees were very efficient and professional."
Cons: "Having to take a very crowded shuttle bus to the plane."
Pros: "There was enough space between the rows of seats!"
Pros: "There was confusion in the boarding time. We were brought in a line to the entryway of the airplane and then held in the "arm" standing in the heat smelling jet feul. I felt badly for the pre-board epople who were elderly or with children. The crew explained and apologized once we were inside but that did not help the passanger discomfort while in line. No chairs for elderly, for example--or allowing us to go back to waiting room."

The check in was very long, total chaos at Madrid airport.

La variedad de películas estuvo excelente! El servicio muy bueno en general.

We got hit with surprise baggage fees because the baggage structure was entirely unclear -- we even looked for how to book bags with Iberia ahead of time. Also, we didn't know that the first flight would be entirely operated by Level. Two flights and neither operated by Iberia. That's fine, but it would have been helpful to know ahead of time.

Ordered gnocchi- received rigatoni for 15 euros. They don’t serve alcohol on flight

I was not granted access to this flight that I paid in full for due to covid restrictions set forth by Spain. I was told by the airline (American Airlines) that because this was out of my control that I would be refunded. I have spent hours calling both Iberia, American Airlines and kayak to get zero results. I have been scammed by kayak!! This company is fraud!!!!

Well many things could have been better. I bought business class ticket. There was no lounge at airport. At least they could have provided us vouchers for a good restaurant to rest, eat, charge our phones etc... The seats were so uncomfortable. They dont recline and i booked business especially for comfort due to back pain. There was no entertainment at all. In our time this is really poor. I liked the food. Crew was super nice.

Pros: "Great selection"
Cons: "Bathrooms are not enough"
Pros: "They had a great selection of movies, each passenger received a blanket and pillow without having to ask, the crew was friendly and professional, and the takeoff and landing were smooth."
Cons: "During the reservation process it seemed that the ticket included luggage, and only when I received the ticket I discovered that I had to pay 30 Euro extra, each way, to check in luggage. The ticket was by no means low-cost, so I don't understand why that wasn't included in the price. And the food could have been much better, I really couldn't eat anything and I usually like airline food... :) Thanks!"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Crew wouldn't let me board because a ticket from Spain to France was not sufficient evidence I would leave Europe. So I bought one from Italy to Singapore and they didn't accept that either. I lost over 1,000 dollars."
Pros: "Tv, food, blanket with pillow"
Cons: "Everything was wonderful"
Pros: "Food was good"
Cons: "British airlines delayed flight to my transfer. Missed my transfer to Madrid and got one to London. Leaving from London my flight on British was delayed by 2 hours AGAIN. Not good."
Pros: "Nothing special."
Cons: "The seats are awful."
Pros: "not enough leg room. Tray too small."
Cons: "the above"
Pros: "The crew was amazing.The seats weren't bad but not super comfortable."
Cons: "The kosher food was excellent and delicious but cold.Our only complaint was that the boss of the crew laughing and making lots of noise when people were trying to sleep.It was great to see people so happy but not during sleep time.I loved the crew.They were very warm and friendly.Boarding was excell"
Pros: "All ok"
Cons: "Free WiFi never worked !!"
Pros: "Iberia"
Pros: "Loved the staff. As far as my experience flying Iberia for the first time is concerned, the the staff was very attentive and courteous. The food was not bad either as it was pretty good and included many beverage options. Would like to see how they do for flights lasting longer than 8 hours. Mine was only about 5 and a half hours from Madrid to Tel Aviv."
Cons: "Pedí un resumen del vuelo para ver lo que compré y nunca me llegó."
Pros: "Flew with the company Iberia was very good service ,easy flight ,good food ,all liked"
Pros: "Nothing -- though seat was okay. No leg room, but it reclined a little, and had those foldable headrests."
Cons: "The boarding was supposed to be by zone, but was just a mad rush. They served no food, not even for money. There was an onscreen ordering option, but for the entire flight it said "this service is temporarily closed". They didn't have a beverage cart. Not even water or coffee. I couldn't even get a cup of water to swallow some ibuprofen and an allergy pill (somebody brought a companion cat, I suspect, quite near to me). No food or water on an international flight across the Atlantic??? You've got to be kidding me -- that's gotta be close to illegal, not providing any means of hydration. But it's certainly cheap, mean, and unacceptable. Pathetic, too."
Cons: "I wish there was a bigger selection of movies and tv-shows to watch."
Pros: "It was my first flight with Iberia - I was very pleased with the entire experience."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "The small space between seats"
Cons: "Crew couldn't say if there was or was not meat in the meals."
Cons: "Tiny food. Late one hour."
Pros: "The entertainment was good and the crew was great."
Cons: "I had ordered a gluten free meal but in the chaos of my seat moving multiple times, it got lost in the shuffle so I wasn't able to eat much of the food that was served. I have long legs and the seat provided almost no where for them to go. I was very uncomfortable by the end of the flight."
Pros: "The entertainment system is pretty good. Touch screens work great, and you can charge your phone. The plane itself is fairly up-to-date, and the headrest is adjustable and very comfortable."
Cons: "I am 6' / 183cm and 210lbs / 95 kg. The seats are quite narrow, and little legroom. I don't think I'll fly them again."
Pros: "Left on time."
Cons: "Plane is extremely old and should be put to sleep. Business class on this plane means younger an empty middle seat and narrow standard seats. Not worth it for business, check airplane model before you book."
Cons: "Few movies. Not good food options"
Pros: "same"
Cons: "same"
Cons: "Not enough place on board. Very poor company"
Pros: "Good seat compared to other airlines"

Pros: "Usually on time"
Cons: "Too crowd. Bad food. They do not clean at all between flights."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Plane had to turn around due to a malfunction. We were waiting with no updates for hours. No information, food or water were provided for kids or adults. Second plane took off 6 hours later, missed connection."
Pros: "The seat was comfortable."
Cons: "All snacks and beverages appeared to be at cost. No in-flight entertainment. My traveling companion's luggage was never delivered to our destination and really made for a less enjoyable trip (since she had to purchase everything anew, as well as having to repeatedly contact the airline to check on the bag - receiving multiple inaccurate stories as to what happened). It makes me far less likely to fly or recommend this airline again. Luggage tracking should be a very simple process."
Pros: "Ibrya is grayte"
Pros: "It was short."
Cons: "Staff was not attentive to customers needs."
Cons: "There is no room for legs he flight was not comfortable .For flight more 5 hours,a plane must be larger,than AB 319"
Pros: "Meal and drinks"
Cons: "Flight was extremely packed and 5 hours long. It was loterlly from hell."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Airline switched to smaller plane after check-in, we were bumped off. Instead of direct flight from Madrid to Tel Aviv, we were routed through Vienna. Instead of 4.5 hours, it took us more than 12."
Pros: "new plane"
Cons: "nothing"
Cons: "The flight from Madrid to tel aviv was very crowded, no place to hand bag, the seat wasn't comfortable like in a low cost flight. The was no TV, not even music. To bad"
Cons: "NO HUBO ENTRETENIMIENTO, EL AVION NO LO TENIA. EL PASAJE SE SENTIA INTRANQUILO . Y ESO HACE QUEEL VIAJE RESULTE MUY MOLESTO. ALICIA"
Pros: "nothing good happens"
Cons: "the last truck (madrid - tel aviv) was not with the same airbus that the 3 others (tel aviv - madrid / madrid - buenos aires / buenos aires madrid)... it was like flying in low cost with food (even the chair could not go backwards...very bad the last one"

Pros: "Fine for what you paid for"
Pros: "ש"
Cons: "Not comfatable very basic food"
Cons: "Online check-in didn’t work (and anyway there is no difference if you check-in online when you arrive at the airport). Security checks were very (very) tedious."

Pros: "Yes"
Cons: "It eas perfect"

Cons: "The meal"
Pros: "Crew was excellent"
Cons: "Seats were too crowded"
Pros: "Crew was friendly, efficient and handle a problem business passenger with a smile and good nature diffusing and placating the passenger even thou the passenger was at fault."
Cons: "Business seats should really recline all the way."
Pros: "Going home"
Cons: "1. The plain was late 2. The sits are horrible, and the airplane is very old. 3. The earphones didn’t work 4. I received a set on the wing not as I requested 5. The entertainment screens are very incomplete and uncomfortable"
Pros: "The crew was amazing, the plain was great, the food was tasty."
Pros: "Good quick service from the flight crew."
Cons: "No airline food is really good but this one seemed really unsubstantial."
Pros: "Flights were on time."
Cons: "Couldn't access the website to add luggage. Couldn't choose seat on check-in - even though I strongly prefer aisle (and my frequent flyer preferences show this) I was assigned a window seat on the way back and couldn't change it. Seats are very cramped. When the person in front of me reclined I coul"
Cons: "Neither you nor pric line mentioned the fact that the return round of a round trip ticket did not include luggage disgusting."
Pros: "service good , food good flight smooth"
Cons: "they lost 3 of our suitcases took 3 days to get 2 and one is still not accounted"
Pros: "They let people with kids board first"
Cons: "Had the worst seats on the plane. we were in the back row next to the bathroom and by the flight attendants. The flush of the bathroom was so loud that it kept waking my kids and I up...also the flight attendants constant scurrying around our seats made it impossible to sleep. Not looking forward to the flight back"
Cons: "El Al switched the flight to IsraAir and the plan was very old and the most uncomfortable I ever was on."

Cons: "Kosher food is very meager."
Cons: "Every thing"
Pros: "Everythingnone"
Pros: "The crew was really nice"
Cons: "It's the 2nd time my luggage has been delayed/lost, and I really needed it for the next day since it had my work clothes/hospital info/stethoscope in it.

Pros: "All was fine"
Pros: "direct flight"
Cons: "no entertainment in long flight small leg room kids in especial seats disabled the option of moving the seat in front row food - taistless"
Cons: "Spent most of the flight watching a good film but the system was shut in the final scene So annoying!!!"
Pros: "The crew were fine, Katia is EXCELENT."
Cons: "The poor chief stewardess was arguing for 1/2 an hour (!) or more with someone who sat in an empty seat next to emergency door. I understand that she has to do this - give her a break!! Big deal! You are SO small minded - charging 3$ for snacks that cost you 40 cents at most, in order to earn you... what - an extra few hundred $'s in the flight? Isn't this rather stupid of you? p.s. Katya is a wonderful stewardess"
Pros: "on time, friendly crew"
Cons: "old plane, no GPS, tiny video screen far away, revolting food both ways"

Cons: "Not enough blankets on return flight"
Pros: "i like that I arrived safely. No delays."
Cons: "I didn't like nor appreciate how the staff interrogated me and treated me prior to boarding the flight. I understand that they have high security, but their attitudes are nasty and inhumane. So therefore I will never fly them again. Not to mention my luggage didn't make it. I had to go on without my luggage. They inspected and reinspected every single item on my carry on for like an hour in a different room. Kinda scary.! Other airlines check the bags in front of the passengers. Horrible experience and I travel a lot and had never experienced anything like that. Almost didn't feel welcome to be traveling to Israel. The flight attendants have attitudes and they yelled at me because I didn't speak or understand hebrew. Food on the plane is horrible too."
Pros: "Received water during the flight. Arrived safely at my destination."
Cons: "Upon arrival to the airport, I was pressurized by the "UP" check-in desk staff to send my carry-on to the plane's hold because "the flight is packed and we prefer that you do so". I didn't argue, but this just gives an overall bad impression and certainly does not shed positive light on the company's competence and professionalism. The flight itself was delayed because of insufficient carry-on space in the upper compartments - carry-ons had to be taken off to the hold - something that created a noticeable delay, add to that the dismay of many irked passengers and the expected complaining and hopeless pleas to the flight attendants. The plane took off 20+ minutes late. The fact that this is "low cost" is no justification at all for such a chaos."
Pros: "Crew was kind."
Cons: "My husband and I never want to fly El Al ever again because the planes are completely outdated and somehow tickets are still full price. Every time we fly El Al the entertainment doesn't work, the screens are ridiculously small, the seats are cramped and the bathrooms are a mess. Every other airline we have used that costs the same or less is a completely different, and better, experience."
Pros: "Checking in. There was a problem with the tickets we ordered but there was a man named Joshua Dadana who was compassionate, helpful and professional who worked his best along with others whose names I did not write down to catch the flight to Israel. I would highly recommend your airline."
Pros: "Well, they were on time. Shockingly."
Cons: "I don't know how El Al gets away with serving people their so-called nightly "meal". They have the audacity to tell passengers it's a "tapas" meal. Tapas has nothing to do with it. You can choose between tuna salad (tuna drowned in mayo with mostly peppers) or chicken with tahini (mostly peppers again, with two small cubes of chicken drowned in tahini). They give you this with a small salad, pita and industrial hummus which is probably the best thing about this meal. Having being burned by this meal last time - they ran out and I got a "glatt kosher" meal - I took the vegetarian option, which was roasted peppers, salad made from 80% lettuce, 20% peppers and no dressing and an inedible cookie. I am allergic to peppers. There is no entertainment to speak of, because El Al sees no reason to update its planes, and there is no personal entertainment system. You can download an app to your phone called "Dream Stream", and stream some options from El Al, but then you have no where to charge your phone, so what's the point? The seats are ridiculously close together, and if someone leans back you really can't eat. Finally, I have no idea why they do this - but El Al flights from Europe don't attach to the terminal via ramp. You get out of the plane on a staircase, in the middle of the night, in the pouring rain, and then have to take a bus to the terminal. It's not like all ramps are busy at 4AM..."
Cons: "nothing"
Pros: "The food was good, it arrived on time. The film was interesting. The temperature was pleasant"
Cons: "I did not like the seat It was hard to watch TV, I had to bend my neck all the time. I had pain in my neck all the flight. I wish the chair could have been less erect. It was easier to put my head on the chair in front than on the back of my chair"
Pros: "The fast of Taanis Esther started at about 4:30am in the morning. The crew was kind enough to serve breakfast earlier than usually to accommodate those who were fasting. They probably had to sacrifice an hour or two of their own sleep, but it was really appreciated by the passengers. The crew should be complemented!"
Cons: "I sat in a seat with something under the seat in front of me. I couldn't completely turn off the screen in front of me."
Cons: "The seats were incredibly uncomfortable sitting in coach sitting. El-al should replace the seats for this plane. It felt almost like sitting on a piece of wood. Also entertainment options were very poor for a 11 hour flight from Boston."
Pros: "new entertainment system was nice"
Cons: "flight was late to arrive, and late to take off, plane was full and crowded. no leg room. food was rather poor"
Pros: "They had the perfect shows on the plane, the crew was very nice and positive"
Cons: "In both flights they had a problem with times and scheduele"
Cons: "Early chekin system deliberately alocated separat sieats for me and my wife, despite I cheked in 23 hours befor take off. The cabin crew was very unfrendly. The bording prosses was slow, messy and unplesent."
Pros: "Personal is very good. Helped us very quickly to change sits to something more preferable for us."
Cons: "Chairs are not comfortable at all. Food is low quality"
Cons: "Crew at the check in were rude, would not let us return the same handheld suitcases we came with, required we check them in, one which they did let us take was required to be measured again with the "cage" at the gate. The temperature on boath flights was very high even with max airflow. We were not allowed to bring abroad bottled water which we had bought at the duty free at the airport, and the aircraft chair would not recline and was extremely crowded with almost no leg space. Will not recommend!"
Cons: "time table was created to keep it it is not working with elal"
Pros: "We paid a full price and received a service of a low cost flight. Airplane was extremely uncomfortable, food- instead of breakfast- poor sandwiches with no choice for vegan. No earphones or music. It's a shame for el al to charge so high for such a chip and uncomfortable flight and service."
Pros: "everything!!!"
Cons: "nothing."
Cons: "i am a guide arranging groups to Rome. I arrived 3 hours before the flight - as is required, to find an under-staffed security check . My group of 20 people , some of which were over 80 years old , had to stand 2 hours in line before they where approached. For those that collapsed there were only about 12 chairs in the entire space, for the multitudes that were coming for the flight. i will never fly El -Al to Rome with my groups again, and will not accept the claim that this is "the Ministry of Security" (as the security checkers claimed) , unless i receive an answer to assure that this is to be amended. i purchased tickets from ElAl - and they must provide better standards for and during their security issues."
Pros: "My name is irit marko 0502931085 Please call me The crew was not nice"
Cons: "You charged my suitcase that was empty.i checked on line i did not see any thi g i tried to call no answer.i explain them that the suitcase was empty .my daugter start school there and we brought a lot of thing.the staff was impatient and not nice.we flew with other airline to larnka they were nice and understand the problem.my daugter is going to school there to medical school she and our family are not going to fly with you.they charge me 60 u more then the flight.very grify"
Cons: "Same movie in the flight to FRA and back.... Also there was no sound channel which sounded normal. all of them had some strange overlay of translation in foreign language and crew did not know how to fix it. My kids did not like the food at all although it was pasta with bolognese source that every kid likes - don't know how they messed this up. Flight was delayed by 1:15 hrs. Luggage took very long time to get out."
Pros: "It eventually ended."
Cons: "Someone on the previous flight threw up in my seat, it was never cleaned, it just soaked in. Flight crew swapped out the cover after 10 min of arguing with them but it stunk horribly. Mid way thru the flight I got up and when I lifted the seat belt I realized there was more vomit in the latch. No power adapters. Movies were super old and my screen was broken so I couldn't watch anyway. Music loop included Dolly Parton!"
