Cons: "No hard liquor. Only wine"
Pros: "Yes crew was amazing and bathrooms remained clean for entire flight"
Cons: "More space and larger selection of movies and shows."
Pros: "Crew was polite and courteous. Flight arrived on time despite late takeoff."
Cons: "Reading light and entertainment system did not work the entire flight despite repeating attempts from crew to restart system. This is a 12 hour flight and with out overhead light and / or entertainment, one cannot do much. Could have been good also if there was wifi, like other airlines have."
Pros: "The food"
Cons: "The plane was falling apart and there was no Ac. Dirty plane too. I was surprised how poor it was."
Pros: "No, the crew wasn't amazing, and no, the seats weren't super-comfortable. Nothing especially good about this flight, but it did take off and land safely, which is the main thing."
Pros: "Crew, service, clean. Free wifi."
Cons: "Nothing . Perfect flight."
Pros: "The seat was not super comfortable.I was grestful that I sat next to a very nice person."
Cons: "The vegan food wasn't very tasty.There was a very limited choice of entertainment.The staff was excellent;very friendly and helpful."
Pros: "I had a good experience purchasing my El Al ticket through Kayak. I was able to select my seat--exit row seats at no extra cost! (although the ticket was admittedly expensive). El Al itself was fine. Service was fine. Food was fine for airplane food. (The bread was actually good, much better than the food on America airlines in general). El Al is known for their tight security and we certainly experienced that. However, I found myself NOT annoyed by it. Because I and my traveling partner were not Jewish or Israeli, we were singled out and interrogated with extra questions. This doesn't sound good but it meant we didn't have to wait in the regular line and kind of got the VIP treatment. We were treated very nicely. Someone went out of their way to get us a seat while we waited for them to inspect the dust particle samples on our wallet and shoes. TSA makes my blood boil but the security through El Al was somehow a pleasant experience. Overall, I was satisfied."
Cons: "The seats were a little narrow. Unlike other reviewers, I did not find the crew particularly friendly."
Pros: "Nothing to get imprese"
Cons: "Good attention, standard flight"
Pros: "Comfort Crew was nice"
Cons: "Food bad taste Small tv screens Bad quality"
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: "It was my first flight with El Al and would do it again the attention of all the stewardess was excellent above all their attitude to please passengers."
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: "Staff was great!"
Cons: "The seats were so tight I felt claustrophobic and I'm only 5'4". The food was not very appetizing."
Pros: "All was cool!"
Cons: "All was ok, flight was a bit late, but fine"
Cons: "To small plan"
Cons: "CHECK IN TOOK VERY LONG TIME"
Cons: "I didn't ply . I did check in . Then they ask me to pay 70$ for my baggage because it's nut El AL it's different compani - up . In the email it's say I have 1 free baggage. I was were upset so I didn't fly . I will be were happy to get answer from kayak . Thank u BTW I fix all my ticket whit kayak . That what really neck me upset"
Pros: "The food was good and the crew on board was pretty good."
Cons: "I am always treated like I'm a bad person since I'm not Jewish. However, this time I was expecting it, so I wasn't surprised. However, the planes are SUPER out of date and there were only a few channels and on the way to Israel most of them were in hebrew. For a 12 hour flight on the way back, there wasn't really anything to do since the 4 movies they had just kept repeating themselves and I didn't really like 2 of them."
Pros: "11 hr flight Business and 1st class were full, so we decided to upgrade to premium coach. There was plenty of leg room, however you are right beside the bathroom and the galley so don't think about resting cause the lights flash the whole trip"
Cons: "That the passengers left such a mess and I felt sad, over all a great fought."
Pros: "It was FREEZING. I have never experienced. The like on any airline. It was like sitting in a refrigerator for five hours- made it a very uncomfortable flight."
Cons: "on our way back' from Prague to TLV the ground crew decided that the "rules" for baggage has changed. they charged me for one "Trolli" suitcase because they desided that camera bag "counts" as suitcase . BAD experience. Won't fly with them again."
Pros: "The crew"
Cons: "The seats"
Pros: "Nice service"
Cons: "Dinner was a sandwich"
Pros: "Nothing was particularly good."
Cons: "ElAl canceled my return flight from Tel Aviv with little advance warning and no reason given, I suspect because of underbooking. They successfully rerouted through Boston, but then messed up re-ticketing in Logan. Food edible but unappetizing. Ancient 767 with no seat-based, on-demand movies (they played on ceiling-mounted screens). No Wifi. Customer service on phone had huge hold times. Personnel were not available between flights. Will not fly again."
Pros: "Entertainment system did not work at my seats on both legs on my round flight."
Pros: "The flifht was not fully booked which obviously had a positive impact on crew and service"
Pros: "Mechanical problems, grounded in montreal for 4 hours, no food or water or air conditioner. Antique entertainment system. Sad part is I live in Montreal and I wasn't allowed to get off the plane, I had to sit on for an extra 4 hours and then fly to Toronto only to get on another flight back to Montreal, because of dumb Quebec beauracy, And pathetic élal incompetent management."
Pros: "Food was fine, Accommodations for collecting the garbage should be sooner so passenger can get out of seat . Beverages offered were a plus."
Cons: "Seats were very crowded and tight. Passengers should not be charged for preferred seating."
Pros: "I had purchased a flight ticket to leave china on the 10 January and that was clear on my ticket. Once at the areport in chengdu ( after a flight from Tel Aviv to Beijing and Beijing to chengdu) I was told that my flight to Sydney was leaving on 11 January. I had to stay in chengdu for an extra 26 hours and not 2 hours 40 as it was clearly mentioned on the ticket I have purchased. I feel I was cheated and I am not satisfied"
Pros: "the crew were trying to do a good job."
Cons: "el al changed the aircraft at the last minute. check in and boarding were very late, slow and stressfull, as they kept kicking people out of the flight beacuase the aircraft was smaller."
Cons: "My flight was operated by American Airlines but it wasn't clear to me on the e-ticket so I went to elal terminal. By the time elal staff realized I wasn't on that flight it was too late to get to AA so I missed my flight"
Cons: "Plane left late and arrived late. As a result we missed our connecting flight and, because of the impending typhoon in Hong Kong, had to be rerouted via Auckland on Air New Zealand. As a result it took us an extra 24 hours to get home."
Cons: "Food was horrible and was down to one option by the time the crew got to the back of the plane. Security for this airline is ridiculous and the staff are incredibly rude."
Cons: "Everything. Especially that kayak haven't mention for one time that the flight include nothing. I had to pay 400$ More than the price showed me on kayak website. In addition, you realize it on the moment you doing check in. I mean 24 hours before the flight. I'm ordering from kayak everyone of my trips, and this one was definitely the last time. Including El Al which is the shitty company I ever flight with. BE AWARE!!!!!!"
Pros: "Very bad pre flight service...it took us 5 hours to get their service department on the phone...as it turns out...me and my husband didnt get a sit next to eachother because picking sits in el al flights is now cost extra 10$ per passanger!! At the end we were sitted togther and even been upgreated..but boy..what a bad expiriance !!! And i expect the flight back will be a strugle too..."
Cons: "when buying with Kayak, one can not order a seat in the airplane. the flight was full and i had to wait until every body boarded the plane. i waited 2 hours for it. it would be nice if you can send a link to the official site to choose a seat or a reminder to do so 2 days before the flight. thank you"
Cons: "Elal changed the airplane to a tiny plane run by some charter company. The seats were tiny. No legs pace and the next passenger had half his body on me. El-Al is complete disgrace and I hope never to fly with them again, which is a shame, since I am from Israel. In any case, I paid full price, and received something worse than I would expect from any low-cost company. El-Al should be ashamed."
Cons: "We got to Barcelona about an hour before the flight to Charlotte. There were 50 of us. They put us on a bus took us to the plane had us wait on the bus for an hour. Told us we couldn't get on the plane and we needed to get new tickets. It took 4 hours to get our backs and new tickets and the customer service was terrible they didn't want to help us."
Pros: "El Al, flight that is secured well Flight officer shared during the flight few tips about berlin."
Cons: "Flight was on Terminal 1, old and with mess and queues that are not organized. El Al Fly web site is horrible, can register well, lot of mistakes, at the end had to call few time. Had to add 160$! For 2 suitcases and seat arrangements (seat near my wif), so this is not low cost flight at the end. Missing water and small snacks during the flight."
Pros: "Was a very bad and negative experience. I fly btw Israel and NYC about 5 times a year, I will not fly again with El Al because of the terrible service and lack or respect for a plane full of 200+ customers."
Cons: "Plane left Ben gurion 7 hours late. No apologies offered. Zero customer service. No snacks or food or even smallest attempt made to improve the experience. Pathetic and dumb way to treat paying customers."
Pros: "The stewardess were very sweet and tried to get it working for us"
Cons: "The lights above our seats and the screens did not work at all during the flight. The screens were not such a problem as the stewardess gave us ipads, but the non working lights were very frustrating."
Pros: "Nothing in particular"
Cons: "Flight was late. Old aircraft. Very little space between the seats."
Cons: "Was late to leave- late to arrive- slow boarding- no explanation from crew Ppl moved all around- loud drunk ppl- crew don't keep order- poorly managed."
Too many hours of delay ( 4)
Pros: "The flight was fine"
Cons: "Let me know by mail to check in before I got to the airport and save me 35 euro"
Cons: "Lower the aircondition temp, it was hot in the plane during flight"
Pros: "The crew was ok. The seats no conmfortable."
Cons: "Every time the same problems. Bording we have to wait almost an hour and then all the people have to wait for the bus in a very Small place(like animals) then at the bus... waiting in a full one untill someone says ok to ride.."
Pros: "The leg space"
Cons: "The don't let you sit together unless you pay extra, it's absolutely absurd. Thay put us on the opposite side of the airplane."
Cons: "You must check in few hours before the flight. Checking in at the airport will cost you 35€. Besides that, the boarding took almost 40min and the seats are not comfy at all. That said, i would rather pay extra $50 and fly with normal company."
Cons: "WizzAir's service. The flight had an 8 hour delay due to bad weather, while Tarom had a flight on the same route, under the same circumstances, and managed to fly to and from Valencia within a much more acceptable 2 hour delay."
Pros: "Overall experience was good. Boarding was fine and onboard crew was nice and helpful."
Cons: "Seats do not recline and there is not a lot of legroom, especially if you are over 180 cm."
Pros: "I think some of the issues were passenger related, and passengers not listening to the crew. So it wasn't so much I liked it but some of the crew's attitudes were warranted based on the passengers."
Cons: "We were loaded onto the bus to take us to the plane and then stood on the bus for 45 minutes! Then were delayed even longer. With zero explanation the entire time. Additionally having to pay for even water is a bit much, especially when I came prepared, but drank more because it was hot on the bus."
Pros: "Once boarding started it was very fast and flight left shortly after"
Cons: "Seats are very uncomfortable"
Cons: "Not accusing the customer of not having a priority booking when they do, not having an hour long wait, and not accusing the customer of having a bag too big when it wasn’t."
Cons: "I had priority and my partner who did not was on plane first! My suitcase was miles away from me (what caused delays on getting out) because next to my seat was not empty slots! After the bus took us to plane crew did not allowed us to use rare entrance (I was seat 37!)! That was chaos!"
Pros: "Service, smiling and attention to details."
Cons: "No kosher food."
Pros: "On time, cabin crew, ease of boarding and amount of bags I could take with Priority Boarding"
Cons: "My seat hadn't been cleaned prooerly before I got there and if I hadn't done it myself, I would have someone else's chocolate all over the seat of my trousers. Also, the bathroom floors were really gross, to the point I had to roll uo the legs of my trousers so they didn't get wet when I needed to use the toilet."
Pros: "The price"
Cons: "The borsing from terminal 1 is should be highlight The man in the check in and bording wad not nice at all. He didn't answer any question. They took our hand bag. We couldn't take it to the plan and no one explaon why."
Cons: "With WizzAir no more in my life it’s even worse than Easyget or Raynair even if you have a cabin suitcase you still have to check in you can’t take it on a plain anymore. Really disappointing and they are not that cheap as they think. £90 one way from Kiev to Luton it’s a bit too much"
Cons: "2 hrs late and we missed all our following connections as a result."
Pros: "The crew was very nice. The flight was ok"
Cons: "Not much of a food choice.."
Cons: "No air conditioned 2 hours late Poor ground service"
Pros: "The flight was overbooked so they took my wife of the flight"
Cons: "Flight delayed by more than 2 hours, additional 40 minutes in the plain before departure. At least 30 minutes until doors opened. Overall huge delay that totally killed my business day."
Pros: "Everything was on time, no delays. Polite crue. Easy boarding."
Cons: "The seats are not comfortable at all"
Pros: "On time boarding, departure and arrival. Smooth flight. Better than Ryanair."
Cons: "Seats were horrible. Narrow, no leg room and awfully uncomfortable. Worse than easyJet."
Pros: "Pilot flew well Cup Noodles available to buy"
Cons: "1h+ delayed No information from the staff or crew (only one apology from the pilot) Left waiting in multiple places including outside the aircraft No updates whatsoever on estimated departure and arrival"
Cons: "It a good option, a good price, i will fly again"
Pros: "Price and schedule. Going on time with no delays. Good value for money."
Cons: "Very hard on baggage policy"
Cons: "the fact the crew arrived to the gate after the planned boarding time causing us to stand too long on the stairways. check in via the app (using iphone 6) was a failure. i was certain i booked with extra luggage - at the check in i was told i didn't. from the reservation confirmation it is not clear what i paid for & there are no means to contact you - email, on line chat - you know the regular things every company today use to proivde customer services which is not only "give us you money". too bad this is WIZZ Air"
Cons: "Priority: advantage only on call. Afterwards no adantage afterwardsroom for hand luggage"
Pros: "Cabin Crew and Pilot did their best"
Cons: "Flight was delayed and landed in Birmingham instead of Luton, due to Luton being closed at midnight"
Cons: "There was a mix up and the Wizz Air website did not work. Therefore, I couldn't check in a get my seats booked. I also could not prepay for my luggage so they overcharged me at the airport and had an attitude about it. My luggage was given three different prices quotes. I am very upset their website didn't work and they ripped me off at the airport."
Cons: "Was delayed on tarmac due to security error, not their error, but they seemed unwilling to at least give people complimentary water or coffee. Cheap airline they are!"
Pros: "Wizz air has great deals and you will get to your destination which is a effective way to travel. Unfortunately the seats are not always comfortable and everything else costs extras for food, seat choice, bags, water, drinks, or anything else you’d desire during flight."
Cons: "The seats don’t lean back and do not have a lot of cushion."
Cons: "Extra fees for baggage and tickets that were not disclosed. The check in was incredibly disorganized. No help was provided with problems."
Cons: "Everything. Worst service I have ever seen on a flight."
Pros: "Arrived only slightly delayed"
Cons: "They made my boyfriend pay 35 gbp for a case 5 cams longer than their stipulation. Yet, lots of other passengers didn't have to pay. Sheer discrimination. Crew is unfriendly and refused to help me place my bag in over head locker. Really poor professional s"
Cons: "Arrived at the airport 2 hours before departure, I was not aware you can't checkin at the airport and need to pay 30 euros for it. The treatment and the attitude from the personnel at the check in counter was rude, they were short and unkind The staff member in charge of charging for checking was incredibly slow, there were 4 people in line including me and it took her 40 minutes to charge me the 30 euros This was after I already stood in line for the ticket for another 30 mins I almost missed my flight due to their poor handling"
Pros: "cheap, on time"
Cons: "no reclining chairs, no free water"
Pros: "Nice clean plane, friendly airline staff (as friendly as they get, we all know how they have that teflon attitude), OK food, I sat between 2 Bulgarian passengers which were very well behaved, one screaming baby nearby (as there always is) and no-one playing football with the back of my seat all the flight (you know who you are - hope someone does it to you), and no-one fidgeting all flight so all in all a good experience."
Cons: "Bit slow in opening the gate for people to get on. They expect to cram you like sardines on a hot staircase with no where to go when there is other people being checked in to board behind you, really stupid and possibly sadistic."
Cons: "Lots of hidden charges."
Cons: "The flight is late from tlv to luton and from luton to tlv."
Cons: "We arrived at a field in Israel with 2 backpacks and did not charge us extra, but on the way back they decided to charge us at the last minute for the same cases we had arrived with. Nothing we said helped and the attitude was cold and hard. The flight was good"
Pros: "Non stop"
Cons: "Very late. Disorganized boarding. Seating and shortage of luggage stowegev"
Pros: "Friendly staff members"
Cons: "They didn't have blanket and it was very cold.."
Pros: "Flight on time"
Cons: "Needed to pay 50 euros for luggage. Beware that unless you have a kids suitcase you will need to pay for luggage. Also, when boarding the hostess was pushing me to show my boarding pass- it took 30 seconds but she was already trying to push me to the side and let others board. Patience and understanding would have been nice. Seats are the smallest of all the regional carriers - not my first airline choice to travel for next time."
Pros: "It was simple, every thing was fast in the airport."
Cons: "Small airplane it was a bit choked."
The flight was on time which is great, considering the prices, wizz air is a very convenient airlines
Flight was late the boring Gate was moved and no one was informed! I was working to find my gate for the flight
I had a connecting flight from Abu Dhabi to Lahore , I had the boarding pass but stupid lady at the gate said I need visa , I tried to explain to her that to pass through the transit at Abu Dhabi , no one needs a visa , she said okay I will see and then she just kept us waiting and didn't let us board, cost me 780usd for 2 flights, will never buy wizz air again
Pros: "No lines and how quick it leaves. Private and quiet."
Cons: "Seats a bit close and no room for conputer bag."
