flight was delayed due to failure of airline to prepare: we sat in plane without air conditioning and without water for more than an hour while we waited to board passengers because airline was not prepared to check in the size of the flight it had booked. then our bags got left behind in iceland because the transfer happened too quickly and the airline's baggage subcontractor in boston mishandled our bags and another fiasco ensued.
Old fashioned seat, no usb to charge my phone, battery went ;off and couldn't make a call to my family to assure them of a half way safe trip while stopping over for almost 6 hours in Ataturk Intl. Airport, Turkey.
Horrible experience with Alitalia. They boarded us on a plane that had a wheel issue, and kept us on the ground for 2 hours before they decided to de-plane us. We then had to wait in a 5+ HOUR LINE to get rerouted (nope, they won't handle these issues online or over the phone, you have to wait in line). And THEN they wanted us to wait in a 2 hour line to re-drop off our bags. We got stuck overnight in Rome and were put in a horrible Hilton Garden Inn and barely made it in time to use our coupon for a "free meal" (aka, frozen meatballs and stale bread in a buffet that had been sitting out all night). On our flight back, the food was absolutely terrible, the movie selections were old and scarce, and the seats were uncomfortable. We called to complain as soon as we got home and still have not heard back from Alitalia. I will never fly with them again.
Liked the peppy, retro outfits. Boarding has no process: first come, first serve- seems to work just fine (versus all the Group numbering other airlines do). Plenty of room for carry-ons and overheads, and they actually try to bag people's bags before they get on the plane that should go underneath the seat in front of them in order to save overhead space.
No complimentary snacks and no on-flight magazine. No TVs or phone wifi for that matter, so bring a book or be ready to snooze!
The plane was well equipped and clean. Despite handing out initiallly headphones that were not compatible with the system, the entertainment system was a good one (and they found correct headphones.. what a disorganized airline!).
This was a second leg on a trip, but when trying to check in on line I was told that this segment did not exist: I did not have a confirmed flight. (This was through their partner Etihad!) Phone conversation with the Alitalia agent was abusive: I was scolded for trying to seek help from Alitalia. It was not their fault. I am tired of the non-functioning on-line/registration system of Alitalia.
Some crew are not very happy to served clients. They just do their job to earn their livings but they have no service mind. It is absurd that we had to thank them and got no response back. Does Alitalia start hiring robots? Unlike Etihad, Alitalia needs a huge room of improvement for customer service. Very poor service. We will not fly Alitalia again.
