Very quick and convenient. On time and staff very friendly
Pros: "the crew were great there’s just not a lot of leg room"
Pros: "Crew was very accommodating of my needs."
Cons: "The flight left 2 hours late. This is a problem in the bigger picture of air travel. The process of boarding, the service, and actions of the crew were all great."
Cons: "Mechanical troubles caused a 2 hour delay in departure. Otherwise, the flight was good as usual."
Pros: "Crew was friendly, flight was relatively empty so comfortable."
Cons: "The flight was delayed two hours... three and a half separate times. Finally left around 7 hours late."
Cons: "There was no personal entertainment system nor USB port for charging."
Cons: "Luggage didn’t arrive and it will arrive tomorrow or next day Horrible experience,flight was delayed one hour but they promised my luggage would arrive.Shame on them"
Pros: "Flight was punctual. While the crew did their job, they didn't seem as friendly as usual with Air Astana."
Cons: "The Boeing 757 is a narrow cramped aircraft for such along flight. It would be good to have an aircraft with not so narrow seats, such as the A320 or A321 or B767 on longer routes. No boarding announcement at Almaty - they just opened the door and you had to "know" that it was time to board."
Pros: "The chairs were comfortable and the Chicken dish was delicious."
Cons: "Boarding the plane was hectic and unorganized."
Pros: "The crew was super friendly and the plane itself was nice, but the seats were uncomfortable and there was no inflight entertainment."
Pros: "Price Travel Kit Relatively new aircrafts"
Cons: "I experienced the same things in both of my flights. Flight attendants did not even asked me what I wanted to drink. I have to yell them to receive their attention. They really nee some training."
Pros: "Price Travel kit"
Cons: "The flight attendants ignored me every time they serve drinks. Even when I push the button it took them 10 minutes to get there and then they forgot to bring my water. I had to ask again. There were some Kazak people in front of me, it did not even take two minutes to bring their water. I don't understand, I guess staff is afraid of speaking in English. The aircraft was old and not comfortable."
Pros: "The crew was nice, but the company does not treat passenges as hyumanbs"
Cons: "Have a spare aeroplane to replace the one out of order"
Pros: "The flight changed from original 3:20 to 4:20 which is expected. But then comes 4:30 the boarding gate never opened and nobody from the Airlines was present to ask questions. I tried to go around and ask different employees of the airport and found out that our plane is not leaving due to wind pressure. At the very same time I noticed that the wind wasn’t really that bad and watched other planes took off without any delay or problems. The gate to our flight opened almost 10 am."
Cons: "There should have been announcement for the reason of delay. We he passengers were exhausted but due to the unknown situation, uncertainty and cariocity could not rest or get a little sleep. When arrived at the transit airport, there was no one to explain where to go or what to do about the delay of flights. I went back to the custom police who told me to hurry up because the flight of our final destination is about to take off from the second floor. I rushed to get there and after bouncing around by different windows I was told to go to another security process and read the flight information on the board. I found the board where the name of the city was mentioned but no gate number nor time of flight. Finally after asking questions from different passengers I got on the plane and sat on the seat in a very hot wheather not knowing the time of flight. After half out of exhaustive heat the plane took off. Needless to say, it was a horrible experience."
Pros: "Scat handled our baggage well."
Cons: "The worst part was the surprise layover to refuel. If I had known there was going to be a 2nd layover, I would not have bought these tickets. I also did not appreciate the long wait in the Almaty where the people at the counter told us a few times that we would leave in '30 minutes'. Altogether, we waited for 5 hours."
Pros: "Smooth flight once we got on board. Helpful, attentive flight crew."
Cons: "Again, very poor communications. Although the flight had been delayed by quite a few hours, the departure board never changed from its original times. We never knew if we had time to eat ... or when we were leaving. I wish they had announced our flight in English. We almost missed the flight. This was a stressful layover."
