Pros: "The plane was nice."
Cons: "6 hours late. No explanation. No apology from any Air Astana employee."
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: "I always enjoy travelling on Air Astana. There were not many people on the flight, so the crew treated us like VIPs! Flight was punctual, comfortable."

Cons: "Delay from Almaty to Aktau about 1hr. Other perfact"
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."
Cons: "Flight delay and can't feedback the problem"
Pros: "Almaty airport needs to be improved and pictures on Air Astana web are much better than real ones. Also check in counter personals are really unskilled."
Cons: "check in counters"
Pros: "Everything was fairly comfortable. Staff was friendly and attentive."
Cons: "The entertainment system could have had more options. Announcements do not come through head phones and are not easy to hear."
Pros: "Thank you for having enough legroom for someone taller. Makes life much easier"
Cons: "Weather delays, however nothing anyone can do about that"
Pros: "Punctual, comfortable, good service on-board."
Cons: "Like Astana Airport, the domestic to international transfer at Almaty is also not well signposted and even though it's the same building, requires going outside in the cold and then back inside. Also Almaty Airport is crowded, the toilets are poor and it really needs to be refreshed. Air Astana is a great airline but is really let down by the poor transfers at both Astana and Almaty."
Pros: "Punctual, comfortable."
Cons: "The transfer from international to domestic flights is not well signposted. It's also odd that even though it's the same building, you have to go outside, walk some minutes and then go back inside. At that time of the year it was quite cold outside!"
Pros: "Good legroom."
Cons: "Boeing 757. 1 movie on overhead screen.no power to charge devices"
Pros: "Crew was great"
Cons: "No legroom or entertainment"

Cons: "The flight was nearly 5 hours delayed with no explanation why or compensation."
Pros: "Gave us a hot snack sandwich and drink for a short less than 2 hour flight."
Pros: "Hot towel, candy, nice flight attendants."
Cons: "The flight was delayed by 3 hours. They did not even attempt to text, though they knew the flight would be delayed. When I asked the check in agents about this, they said what can they do? This is a serious lack of taking personal responsibility. What can they do? They work for the company! There are several steps they could take, but they chose to abdicate responsibility instead. Even though I'd been there for several hours and specifically asked for a window seat and been granted a window seat, during boarding, they changed my seat to a middle, which was the icing on the cake. Also, during announcements, the pilot did not even give an apology. This is poor management And I'm disappointed in Air Astana."
Pros: "Decent food. Direct flight. Good plane."
Pros: "Plenty of leg room therefore comfort on the plane. The staff were courteous and helpful."
Cons: "The selection of movies seemed on the whole dated."
Pros: "Good ground handling staff that dealt with my special baggage requests well. Clean new plane. Pre-departure beverages even in economy class."
Cons: "No service offered. No drinks, nothing. Admittedly it was only a 35 minute flight but at least water would have been nice in-flight."

And the meal service and in-flight entertainment were more that I could have asked for. Excellent experience."
Pros: "The flight kit was nice - with earbuds, sleeping mask, socks, toothpaste, et cetera."
Cons: "The group of passengers, easily 20 people or so, who were crowding the aisles and really loud for a majority of the flight. The flight attendants were very passive in getting them settled, and seemed to take out their frustration with them in the way they served all the other passengers."
Few people on the plane - Was great! The plane was late to board and over an hour late to arrive. They said it was airport control. How can these things not be booked it advance? Very frustrating!
Never again. Lost my item because of their stupidity

Cons: "Was a good experience"
Pros: "Airplane very comfortable"
Pros: "On the 15th. Nov during my flight to India, I have made an online check in though did not receive an e ticket. I arrived the airport 70 min before the flight. The crew on the check in counter refused to issue me a ticket and insisted that I have missed my plane abd I need to purchase a new ticket. They even refused to check if I have made an online chick in. The gulf air online system, did not show me that I have made an online checkin. Unfortunately, the problem was solved by asking someone who work in the airport ( not gulf airlines representative) to check if I have made and online check in and to issue me a ticket to pass through the security control"

Pros: "I got a business class upgrade and it was amazing!"
Cons: "Bahrain airport"
Pros: "Meal options and snacks, good crew staff. And relatively comfortable seating. The plane waited for us because of the earlier delayed flight, though we prefer to have been given the option to stay the night and catch the next morning flight."
Cons: "The flight got delayed from Alexandria and the staff at Manama airport directed us to a counter to get our onward boarding passes but another senior member of staff asked us "what are you doing here" and asked us to go straight to the gate, then when we arrived at Abu Dhabi the baggage did not arrive with us and we had to go back to the airport later to pick them up."

Pros: "The Staff were very courteous and worked efficiently during serving food and prompt when called for assistance."

Cons: "Cupboard in toilet was broken and hanging open. The food was not good"
Pros: "All but planes were good"
Pros: "I was rerouted entirely to fly with Austrian Air, and only landed 2 hours later than scheduled, which was nice."
Cons: "My Gulf Air flight from Bangkok to Paris was delayed 7 hours which would make me miss my connection to Paris in Bahrain...and they wanted to put me on a new flight that would have me layover in Bahrain for more than 18 hours, and landing in Paris 24 hours later than planned. I politely said no and asked them to find me something else, and they did--so that was good. But the suggested alternative for a 7 hour delay was absolutely ridiculous. Also, the 7 hour delay was never explained and no other flights were delayed, so I guess it was something wrong with the plane?"
Pros: "Food and the crew"
Cons: "The air sucks in the flight"
Pros: "More movies And good food Pls have working charges of iPhone on Bahrain airport"

Pros: "The in flight entertainment console was standard with decent movies. The hotel and food voucher for flight delay was nice but was only received AFTER fighting with customer service for over 3 hours on the phone using international calling. Terrible terrible."
Cons: "Firsr leg of flight was delayed (mnl to bah) then luggage was lost when we arrived in Paris. Food on the plane was mediocre. Service was poor. I kept having to request water because only a small glass of water was made available at meal service, and typically most airlines on international.flights offer water consistently throughout the flight. Flight attendants all but disappeared in between services. Coffee was also terrible borderline undrinkable. When luggage was lost no offer was provided for a solution - voucher, per diem, etc. We were coming from a warm climate and had to exist for two days layering warm weather clothes. Luckily we had our coats in our carryon. But both travelers became sick during our trip."
Cons: "Flight was overbooked and I was forced to delay 24hrs for the next available seat."
Pros: "More selection where you can pick and choose your tv shows or movies."

Pros: "You get out to change flight and you go back to the same plane"
Cons: "No English subtitles on TV or movies"
Pros: "I didn’t"
Cons: "I was a business class passenger and the flight might as well have been economy, with the exception of the food. There was no personal entertainment, the seat foot rest did not work — it was an old plane — the seats recline all the back to the lap of the person behind you — so when the guy in front of me was done eating he proceeded to lay back — however I wasn’t done eating — and it knocked over my glass of sparkling water —- typically even if a passenger is still eating there is still room for the person to lay back — I had to push the persons seat quickly before my whole tray was wrecked."
Pros: "Everything was smooth. Crew always smiling and helpful."
Cons: "Asked for water 2 x with none ever brought"
Cons: "The flight attendants did not keep the children and their seats they let them run around as we taxied the airport until one fell and had their head. Then they would not insist on them to stay in in their seats even on take off."
Pros: "That it was a direct flight"
Cons: "Turn on A/C of plane upon boarding (it is the only airline where the A/C is turned on after the aircraft detaches from gate, even budget airlines in have A/C on when boarding) Improve entertainment (more movies / better selection up to date) Increase seating space Improve food options and quality"

Cons: "Same hygiene and quality standards across flight on all sectors"
Cons: "Business class should hv full flat beds"
Pros: "Very good value for money."

Pros: "The company of the 7 year old girl in the seat in front."
Cons: "The late departure. Again. With no reason or meaningful excuse given. The bland and overcooked food. The lack of space for knees and shoulders even though I'm only 1m72cm."
Pros: "The entertainment kept the kids happy"
Cons: "The food- ran out of options- I’m not vegetarian but they had no options at all. The crew- not particularly engaged or attentive The drinks- poor selection, warm"
Cons: "Lost my checkedin baggage. Missed my connection flight from Muscat due to delay in arrival from Istanbul"
Cons: "No separate boarding line for business class passengers; Staff was clueless in muscat airport and theee was no priority boarding for business class passengers"
Pros: "Nothing as such"
Cons: "Air condition was very low"
Pros: "New 787 seats were extremely comfortable for short-haul, regional. 2-2-2 may not suit some people for long haul. Good selection of in-flight entertainment. Nice sincere service."
Cons: "Boarding was unpleasant. Buses to aircraft: had to wait approx 10 mins in the bus on the tarmac whilst the previous two buses unloaded. Then the actual staircase / boarding process took nearly 10 minutes... queueing in 41 degree heat. Muscat is a very new airport and many gates with airbridges were not being used. As the home airport of the national carrier I wouldn't expect tarmac boarding."
Pros: "Priority Boarding for business class. The cabin crew were attentive, cheerful, caring. It's a short regional flight so the older, regional configuration of the seats is appropriate if not a little shabby. Offer of juices, Arabic coffee and dates before take off is very welcoming as is a choice of hot or cold towels. Flight was on time for take-off and landing."
Cons: "No inflight entertainment or, if there is, there are no headsets."
Pros: "Movies in the entertainment screen."
Cons: "At the boading, just when we were putting our luggage we were around 5 kg more, in a bad way the turkish lady there asked us to reduce or pay. We reduced the luggage and 2 kg more were left but her and her boss isisted in a rude way to pay or to remove more luggage. We asked her boss to help us in lifting one big bag since we were all girls and couldnt lift it but he refused to help as a gentleman would do and said quick quick put the bag quickly. For sure I wi never chose turkish airline again."

Leaking emergency exits that cover passengers in condensation."

Cons: "The boarding was cancelled due to 5 hrs before visa arrival time and forcefully called no show."
Pros: "Service, food, Cabin cleanliness, friendly service"
Cons: "The flight was cancelled. There was an overnight delay of 8 hours until the next flight. During the flight, the young male cabin crew spent more time sitting and chatting with other young male passengers and not attending to there duties. I will not fight on another Oman Air flight if this is the way you conduct business."
Pros: "We took off on time. Attendants were nice. Value for money."
Cons: "Lavatory I used was a bit messy. Meal option was a bit blah."
Pros: "Cleanliness and Staff treated"

Pros: "Better options in A/V meal"
Pros: "Straight to my destination"
Cons: "The worst food you could ever have in a expensive flight. Just pretzels and water. And the plane is really old & the chairs are really stiff that hearts the back"
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Less legroom than usual/expected. Crew was fine but wasn't too proactive and took quite a while to get things going regarding food/beverages."

Cons: "Insufficient leg space, available movie selection"
Cons: "The food The crew The seats"
Pros: "Only a 45 minute flight, but we were able to start watching their large collection of movies as soon as we boarded. Far better than comparably priced low cost carrier, don't hesitate to fly them."
Cons: "Since it was a very quick flight there was no service, not even a quick beverage service that you would find on similar length flights elsewhere. Still a great bargain and good experience."
Pros: "The flight attendants and crew were amazing! The airline was top notch!"
Cons: "When I finally got thru customs I picked up my bag and it was all wet. Something that smelt like vinegar was spilt on it. Also when my friend who I was traveling with picked up her luggage the plastic was ripped off. That must be some rough handling they have because this was a hard plastic suitcase.. They need to treat the cargo a little less rough."
Cleanliness os Seats and surrounding areas. On time Departure and Arrival. No1 Budget Airline in India
Pros: "Not much."
Cons: "We flew to India and back from Turkey. Both flights had 2 stops and both times Indigo said we didn’t have a second flight and wouldn’t give us a second boarding pass meaning we had to go out to the check in both times to get our second boarding pass and both times were very problematic. Also we have a 7+ hour international flight on a very small plane with no free food or drinks. Just not a very good flight experience overall."
Pros: "Basically nothing"
Cons: "They should do announcements properly, and the crew attitude is awful."
Cons: "The website does not describe baggage allowance clearly as compared to other airlines. It lists “excess baggage weight” but not the 15kg limit. The choice of 15kg as the limit is a BIG problem for international travelers who may be coming for longer stays. Air India has a much friendlier policy for checked and carryon baggage and I would choose it by far. We were charged for every kilo even though prepay options online were not user friendly. 4 thumbs down, way down."
Pros: "Did not take the flight as fell sick. Tried working with vayama and Turkish airlines to reschedule this return flight but quoted cost was higher than original price."
Cons: "An understanding and accommodation based on medical reasoning."
Cons: "Priority boarding for parents with kids."

Pros: "Flight attendants were the best and very friendly"
Cons: "Not much, on time flights and friendly flight attendants"
Pros: "Seats very uncomfortable"
Cons: "Separate counters for wheel chair passengers as well as bus transport. There were several unruly travellers and it is not fair that ground staff should have to remind passengers of protocol. Separate transport will help."
Pros: "We arrived"
Cons: "The flight was an hour late on departure pushing the international flight timeline a bit too narrow."
Pros: "Ground reservation and check in crew were amazing."
Cons: "45 minutes in the checking queue. And long queue at the boarding gates. Please get your act together. All it takes is a little forethought and efficiency — not many people looking busy and doing the same thing."
Cons: "Legspace for passengers"
Cons: "In hurry to turn around aircraft, the tray table and aircraft was not cleaned. Boarding started and passengers were made to stand in queue even before the aricraft was cleaned, causing avoidable inconvenience."
Cons: "Flight was on time. Crew were professional."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "People requesting to switch seats"
Pros: "The flight was delayed & we were not informed over announcement or SMS. We were kept waiting standing in Que for 45 minutes assuring every 5 min that we will board. I am a senior citizen & diabetic. My medicine & insulin routine was upset. If I would have known earlier of the delay I would had my meal & insulin in Airport."
Cons: "The crew, Cleanliness"
Pros: "Clean comfy seats Attentive and polite staff"

Pros: "It started on time and landed before time."
Pros: "Crew tried to be helpful and friendly."
Cons: "Difficult to find if in right line to check in. After asking many finally found a staff member who realized I had only a few minutes to catch my flight. Then given priority. IT COST ME ABOUT $67 USD ONE WAY BUT IT COST MY BAG $87 USD TO BE CHECKED IN. Another cut rate airlines that charges for everything extra--soon th toilets!"
Pros: "They finally managed to get me on the plane after finding out I had 10 minutes to boarding time due to inefficient inter terminal transport in Delhi"
Cons: "I paid more for my checked in bag than for my ticket. They charge extra for everything--soon the toilet!"
Cons: "When we booked the flight we were unaware the price did not include checked baggage. We called Kiwi.com and we asked what it would cost to add checked baggage. They said they’d check and get back with us. When they did they said the additional charge for 15kg was more than the ticket itself!! For more than 15 up to 30kg it was nearly 3 times as much! This really felt like a scam! We asked to cancel the flight and were told we could, but there was no guarantee of any refund. We said to cancel it anyway. Later I was told there would be no refund. I assumed it had been canceled and yet I got emails telling me it was time to check in, etc. And then I’m asked to review my flight! So, between Indigo and Kiwi.com I felt I got terrible service. I will not use either of them again. In the end we got a flight for the original amount including 15kg of checked baggage from a different website and on a different airline that left at the exact same. There was a reasonable charge per 5 kg over the15 allowed."
Pros: "Good crew, comfort & food."

Cons: "Long delays. no compensation. poor communication about delays. Long wait in plane. No refreshment."

Pros: "The boarding was quick and organized. We actually took off 10 minutes earlier than our scheduled time. The crew were courteous and polite."

Cons: "My trip had two flights. The first one, from IAD to JED was the problematic one for me. I purchased the highest Internet package to finish some work on the flight. The service was terrible. I purchased 300MB for $25. I barely used less than 60MB in several hours of work because of terrible connection. Yet, when I complained to Saudia customer service, they insisted that there was no technical issue, refused to give me a refund, and did not even apologize. The transit in Jeddah's airport was terrible. The bathrooms are very dirty and smelly. In the return flight, we had an overnight stay in the airport. People typically need to sleep at this time. However, the airport was very crowded and, for so many people, there was not even enough seats to sit down."

Pros: "Nothing special"
Cons: "Actually it’s strange to call the cabin crew 3-4 times and they see you and just keep ignoring, namely ( Omar and Turkey ) their names Even I opened the calling cabin crew indicator , and their was no response, the only thing I really need was water to take my medication. But unfortunately till the end of my journey their was no response."

Cons: "The TVs on my first flight didn’t work, the headphones I got had one completely broken bud with no cover and the other didn’t work. And they put my luggage on the wrong plane so I have to wait an extra hour which caused me to miss my driver who was going to take me to my hotel! And to top it all off I was told to change clothes because they “weren’t appropriate”... it was just shorts and they went past my knees! I am a man and should be able to where shorts because they are comfy!"
