Мінуси: "No hard liquor. Only wine"
Плюси: "Yes crew was amazing and bathrooms remained clean for entire flight"
Мінуси: "More space and larger selection of movies and shows."
Плюси: "The food"
Мінуси: "The plane was falling apart and there was no Ac. Dirty plane too. I was surprised how poor it was."
Плюси: "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."
Плюси: "Boarding didn't take too long"
Мінуси: "The seats were super uncomfortable with literally no legroom, the average baby booster seat would probably be more comfortable..."
Плюси: "Crew, service, clean. Free wifi."
Мінуси: "Nothing . Perfect flight."
Плюси: "The seat was not super comfortable.I was grestful that I sat next to a very nice person."
Мінуси: "The vegan food wasn't very tasty.There was a very limited choice of entertainment.The staff was excellent;very friendly and helpful."
Плюси: "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."
Мінуси: "The seats were a little narrow. Unlike other reviewers, I did not find the crew particularly friendly."
Плюси: "Comfort Crew was nice"
Мінуси: "Food bad taste Small tv screens Bad quality"
Мінуси: "Delay, food, entertainment"
Плюси: "Not much."
Мінуси: "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."
Мінуси: "Storage is too small for trolley or even a computer bagpack"
Плюси: "Crew and boarding and price"
Мінуси: "Charging got coffee is a bit much. NO foot room"
Плюси: "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."
Плюси: "the part I liked was that the plane didn't crash."
Мінуси: "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."
Плюси: "Staff was great!"
Мінуси: "The seats were so tight I felt claustrophobic and I'm only 5'4". The food was not very appetizing."
Плюси: "All was cool!"
Мінуси: "All was ok, flight was a bit late, but fine"
Мінуси: "To small plan"
Мінуси: "CHECK IN TOOK VERY LONG TIME"
Мінуси: "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"
Плюси: "The food was good and the crew on board was pretty good."
Мінуси: "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."
Плюси: "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"
Мінуси: "That the passengers left such a mess and I felt sad, over all a great fought."
Мінуси: "the bed Attitude from the check in desk never again with EL AL UP"
Плюси: "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."
Мінуси: "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."
Плюси: "The crew"
Мінуси: "The seats"
Плюси: "Nice service"
Мінуси: "Dinner was a sandwich"
Плюси: "Nothing was particularly good."
Мінуси: "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."
Плюси: "Entertainment system did not work at my seats on both legs on my round flight."
Мінуси: "In general everything is fine, but the flight was delayed by one hour, so I missed my train."
Плюси: "The flifht was not fully booked which obviously had a positive impact on crew and service"
Плюси: "Food was fine, Accommodations for collecting the garbage should be sooner so passenger can get out of seat . Beverages offered were a plus."
Мінуси: "Seats were very crowded and tight. Passengers should not be charged for preferred seating."
Плюси: "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"
Плюси: "the crew were trying to do a good job."
Мінуси: "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."
Мінуси: "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"
Мінуси: "Delay in taking off"
Плюси: "Not dying, staying alive"
Мінуси: "Emergency landing after blowing a tire, not recommended"
Мінуси: "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."
Мінуси: "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."
Мінуси: "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"
Мінуси: "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."
Мінуси: "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."
Плюси: "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."
Мінуси: "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."
Плюси: "The stewardess were very sweet and tried to get it working for us"
Мінуси: "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."
Мінуси: "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."
Плюси: "Staff great"
Мінуси: "Seating so jammed its misery. Entertainment system didn't work nor phone charger. But space, you can hardly get out of your seat to go to the bathroom"
Мінуси: "Flight was delayed. Entertainment was limited and the selection was horrible. Security gave me a hard time and they even lost my items that they took away from me."
Плюси: "yes. It was perfect."
Мінуси: "Flight attendant didn’t smile @ all, it was like we are on her way."
Мінуси: "Free water ! On a 2+ hours flight, it’s scandalous to have to pay for a glass of water. Also, your cabin crew was inexperienced (but trying hard, credit to them) and understaffed. And the flight was late."
Плюси: "The crew, plane and airport was great!"
Мінуси: "Part of our luggage was disassembled and not delivered to the final destination."
Плюси: "The crew, plane and procedure was all great."
Мінуси: "Part of out luggage was disassembled during transit and part was missing afterwards... part of the luggage was missing."
Плюси: "We made it safely to our destination."
Мінуси: "There was no WiFi. Comfier seats or at least a pillow and blanket."
Мінуси: "Nothing in time"
Мінуси: "No information was avSo pick a couple up listen to this device again also right now dictation right now"
Плюси: "Very nice plane and we left on time and the flight was very smooth."
Плюси: "flight crew was amazing."
Мінуси: "Boarding was poorly handled by airport staff"
Плюси: "Very nice and comfortable place by Air Baltic. Nice and polite crew."
Мінуси: "Flight was delayed"
Плюси: "Helpful crew"
Плюси: "It was a fairly ordinary flight"
Мінуси: "Our luggage never arrived at our destination, perhaps something to do with a connecting flight although there were 2 hrs 15 mins between connections. After informing Male Airport, a message was sent to Condor. No news all day. Next day lodged complaint replied they're investigating. Holiday ruined"
Плюси: "Simple no frills airline"
Мінуси: "Short flight and unmemorable (that's a good thing)"
Плюси: "Absolutely nothing"
Плюси: "Tallin airport is beautiful"
Мінуси: "Lost luggage and indifferent assistance."
Мінуси: "Flight was late"
Мінуси: "would not check my bag to final destination"
Мінуси: "There was a sceen right before my eyes telling me how much time of the flight was left. Even if I wanted to be unaware of the information I could not because as I mensioned it was right before my eyes. I was aware of almost every minute of this flight....found it hard to let go and just let time pass"
Плюси: "My checked in bag did not arrive to HEL... Nedless to say I did check the bag tag was properly labeled RIX to HEL... oh well ... bad score for Baltic Air ... truly hope to see my bag in CGK when I arrived. Qatar airways pls come to the rescue."
Плюси: "Newer plane for this stretch."
Плюси: "Newer plane."
Мінуси: "The plane we were supposed to be on from Riga to Helisinki had mechanical problems so they switched our plane. We had an hour delay do to that. Then when we got to Helsinki our luggage never made it."
Мінуси: "The passage through Riga airport was terrifying. We arrived from St. Petersburg 6.35 and we left 7.20 to Paris (passengers in transit). We explained at the checkpoint that we had a few minutes, but they controlled us several times until we had to throw several liquid items. In St. Petersburg they had already controlled us, without problems. In short: a sad experience in Riga, which does not speak well of this country: Latvia."
Плюси: "Quick boarding, pleasant crew"
Мінуси: "Small propeller plane with very limited room, no in-flight service,"
Плюси: "If water was free it would be better. Other than that everything was fine"
Плюси: "Flight was short and sweet, no problems to report."
Плюси: "Easy for my friend and I"
Плюси: "We went to Tallin by taxi 5 hour Air Baltic gave for voucher We are group of 8 frends"
Мінуси: "on the website i ordered and payed for a meal, and automatically it went to the last and the shortest leg of the flight. it did not ask which leg i was interested in. so i phoned their customer service to get this fixed, they said they cannot fix it and closed the phone on me. on the website is said that from israel you cannot do advance internet checkin, and when i arrived at the checkin they said that i should have done this advanced check in, and since i didn't i need to go to their ticket office and pay a penalty of 35$ per passenger. there also was no warning on the website of any such penalty. i will never fly with them again if i can help it."
Мінуси: "They overbooked the flight and without any apologies on their behalf or without even informing me, they stop me and my fiance at the gate and just told is that we can not go to the flight I book and prepay 4 month at advance! The only solution that they can offer me was to travel from Riga to Moscow and than to Tel Aviv. It become 12 hours traveling across 4 countries ( we arrived form Stockholm) instead of 5 hours flight as it was supposed to! I'm not recommending to travel with that company it can not be trusted!"
Мінуси: "bag measure frames in Riga airport used for aB are smaller than in most airports, as a results we were asked to check some bags in at the last moment. we have had connecting flight through Riga with two hand bags. lets call them big and small. judge by yourself: flight, aircraft, small, big ->Riga CS3, on board, on board Riga-> DHC 8-400, on board, check in ->Riga DHC 8-400, on board, on board Riga-> CS3, check in, check in as you see, the same bags on the same aircraft were allowed or disallowed by the same company based on weather one flies to Riga or from it. i believe there is absolutely no purpose for doing last second interruptions of such kind"
Мінуси: "We had to pay for 3 pieces of luggage, including my hand luggage. It came to about $150 dollars. When i booked the flight, it did not indicate anything about this extra change so be ware of this. The flight itself was quite inexpensive."
Мінуси: "I needed to cancel the flight a month before, and I got no refund"
Мінуси: "The flight was cancelled, so I did not make to the my connection flight with different carrier. I had to reschedule the flight and stay in the hotel overnight. AirBaltic refused to compensate for my looses due to thair fault, castomer service is very poor, they took refusal position right away. Air Baltic planes are very old and no air conditioning, avoid air Baltic."
Плюси: "Professional appearance"
Мінуси: "Extra $ for the seat (quite absurd) and 40 Euros for a check in luggage."
Мінуси: "In Stockholm they denied my boarding to Riga and Moscow as they told me that I need Shengen visa. When I was buying ticket I wasn't informed that I need to have Visa. I always travel through Europe with layovers and never have this issue before. I had to buy another ticket straight to Moscow and wait in the airport for 8 hours. I ask to reimburse me half of the price of this ticket."
Мінуси: "I was flying transit, but I had to go through the check-in in Paris. At the check-in they started to make problems about my carry-on luggage. I had just two flights from the United States behind me and no problems at all and suddenly I can't fly with my carry-on luggage? I didn't like the AirBaltic check-in service."
Плюси: "Boarding went well and crew was nice."
Мінуси: "The air conditioning was not working properly on the 3 hour flight which made it a bit sweaty and unfortable. The purchase of a cold beer was a must."
Мінуси: "paying for water!"
Мінуси: "No fee food or beverages at all. Attendants were very pleasant. Since this is an economy airline there reallly is no complaint. Our flight was full and boarding went smoothly."
Плюси: "The equipment used for the trip to latvia. the cs300 was superb and I enjoyed my seat. It was comfortable. The boarding was quick and efficient. spacious and quite lovely. the food was ok . i enjoyed the grilled pork."
Мінуси: "the customer service rep stopped only me, the only black man travelling from riga to russia and was scrutinizing my passport for some long agonizing minutes. My russian visa is in the passport and updated and quite visible to see on the third page of my passport and being from Grenada I am able to travel to latvia visa free for up to 90 days. I stood there whilst others walked past me and went to the aircraft. that sucked. may 09 2017 at around 9 am."
Плюси: "Quick boarding once the plane finally arrived. Planes are new."
Мінуси: "Flight was delayed approximately 45 minutes as a result of late arrival of aircraft - surprising since it was a morning flight.. I am 6ft2, leg room is VERY tight. I slept most of the flight so cannot speak to food or entertainment. Watch out for the fees! 5 euro per leg for a seat assignment 60 euro to check bags."
Плюси: "Friendly crew, tons of meal options, good price."
Мінуси: "Checked in luggage is only 20kg, there's no entertainment in flight."
Плюси: "On time"
Мінуси: "Mediocre crew Pricing policy makes you feel like a fool. Ex : if you book not directly from their website, you won't receive a email asking to check online and will end up paying a 30e fee at the counter."
Мінуси: "After barely making too tight a connection, all food and beverage needed Euros or European credit card. My Visa wouldn't work. Finally after I broke down (blood sugar way too high) the stewardess gave me a glass of water. Never will I use the money grubbing airline again"
