Easy check in. Hot snack with wine if desired. Then chocolate, tea or coffee. Altogether excellent.
Seats are quite small, but due to the plane being empty we were aloud to switch seats to have more room
The water was handed out as we were entering the plane, instead of when we are set down and our hands are free of luggage. There was absolutely no food offered from Sofia to London, except a low quality chocolate, which was not delicious. The flight between London and Miami was ok, as far as service and food, but it was absolutely freezing, throughout the whole aircraft, especially in the back seats, I had to cover my head with a scarf, besides using the blanket and still I was feeling extremely uncomfortable. The passengers seating around me shared the same opinion. We did ask for something to be done about it. The gentleman did try to adjust it, but the effect last very short time, and towards the end of the flight it was extremely cold and blowing strong again ….
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."
Cons: "To add food and to patk the plane at the linkway"
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. Please make sure that the people who work at Sofia airport get some kind of basic human training. Unfortunately, they do not wish to make you feel welcomed or cared for."
Pros: "fast trip, clean plane"
Cons: "Was a bit different to get on a bus to take you to the actual plane"
Cons: "Flight was two hour delayed and I missed my connection"
Pros: "The chocolate was great!"
Cons: "This airline and airport is from two centuries ago. Seats were super crammed and we waited in the heat NEXT to the plane to board for good 10min"
Pros: "Not much."
Cons: "The flight was delayed with over an hour. No apologies were offered. I was not even offered a drink until I asked (and I was in business class)."
Pros: "The crew was nice and it wasn't a full flight so we had room."
Cons: "The food wasn't very good and the headphones were a bit uncomfortable"
Cons: "For international flights every passenger should be allowed to bring one suitcase for free, I am traveling with my children for family of 6 they charge $70 dollars per person and the grand total charges for suitcases came to $350 dollars. Too much and unfair"
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"
Cons: "The flight was delayed for almost 3 hours while we were already sitting in the airplane"
Cons: "The flight was delayed, crew was not helpful in my cabin, entertainment system was outdated and totally broken at my seat."
Pros: "Flight was amazing but my connection in Barcelona to Tel Aviv was a bit stressful. I couldn't check in via app or phone, When I arrived at security in Barcelona, security would not allow me to pass without a boarding pass. So I had to leave the gate area and go to El Al ticket counter."
Cons: "I almost missed my flight because of this. I called Expedia staff and they weren't much help. Next time I will be better prepared when booking flights to Tel Aviv."
Pros: "Everything went went really well. The only problems was a delay of several hours which they posted so I knew in advance."
Pros: "Clean airport and airline. I was on the new Dreamliner. Book business you don’t want to be in the back."
Cons: "For obvious reasons security is tight. However, they do not warn you sufficiently about the screening and security process. It took 2 hours alone to get through security and it was a light crowd. I can only imagine if it was packed or during major EU or Israeli holiday. They try to move people fast but security folks are all very young so they require a lot of supervision and need oversight so they stop and go for questions with trained team members."
Pros: "Good service"
Cons: "No individual entertainment unless youve already downloaded the program to your computer. Non-supportive headrest made it hard to sleep"
Pros: "I did like the breakfast provided, eggs were good. Dinner was fine too, I liked that hummus was provided.. seats were comfortable. There were sufficient bathrooms."
Cons: "Even though the seats were comfortable, the legroom was not."
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.."
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."
Cons: "I paid 3 tickets for my kids from Prishtine to Budapest online through Kayak and when they went to check in they didn’t accept the tickets!!! They made them to buy new tickets because they didn’t accept those that I bought online.!! When I asked why they it happen they lady From call center turned the phone off."
Pros: "The cheap fares"
Cons: "Airplane was filthy, needed a thorough cleaning. More padding on the seat."
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: "1h 45 minutes waiting for luggages in Bucharest Otopeni. Still not delivered."
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."
I liked: Helpful, informative, pleasant crew. Could be Better: Check in. Stowage space General cleanliness especially toilets. Ugh!
It became a standard of this company to delay it's scheduled flights by hours! One to two days in advance, a notice of one hour delay is issued, then - at the airport, another 2 to 3 hours are occurring, at our outbound as well on our incoming flights. Be advised that this is to be expected. Furthermore - do not expect any transparency or explanation or just pure information from the company's reps on location, nor any other compensation or just a coupon for a snack or drink. It's probably just not part of the company's relation with it's clients.
Pros: "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: "There was a delay in flying The service was terrible And the airplane is old and uncomfortable. The flight attendants did not relate and really gave the feeling unpleasant"
Pros: "short flight"
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 ."
The flight was late with no explanation given to the passengers.
Overall a good experience for a short low cost flight . Boarding and departure was on time, crew was nice, airplane conditions were ok. The Heraklion airport is not convinient at all, especially as it doesn’t have an air conditioner. But this is not related to BlueBird.
I think I will never fly agsin with Blue Bird
The check in was really bad. This was my worst experience as far as i can remember. Very slow without any real reason.
There was a delay on the flight, in addition although there was a delay there was a last boarding sign earlier than the boarding time. So overall - stressed to come quickly to board and then waited a long time and arrived later than planned
