First, El Al contracted the flight out to Israair so all the boarding passes had to be reprinted. It appears that there was a change of plans also. We boarded the plane 30 minutes after the scheduled departure.
Then, we sat on the tarmac for 90 minutes waiting for "permission from Kiev to take off". Never heard of that before!
When drinks and snacks were served, the cart never stopped in my row, it just kept going!
Lastly, the crew was unable to control the passengers (religious Israeli's going to a religious site in Ukraine). Constant standing in the aisle even when the seatbelt sign was on. Upon touchdown, half of the passengers left their seats and took their luggage from the overhead bins and made a rush for the front door. With the plane sitll rolling on the main runway! A serious safety violation.
This really was a flight from hell.
Ukrainian intl Air destroyed our winter vacation. They sold us a flight Tel Aviv- Kiev- Warsaw. Now we understand that the connection flight was unreasonable (40 minutes between flights) but they sold it anyway. Thus, our baggage didn't arrive to Warsaw with us. We are waiting for two days for our bags (still waiting!!). Meanwhile we don't have our ski gear and outfits. Actually, we don't have anything and it's -3 outside!! We had to buy a lot of winter clothing, rent ski clothing, equipment, etc., We spent more than 500 Euros and precious time. Our vacation is ruined and we are very disappointed :(
Next time we will book flights with a travel agent ...
That the flight connection were awful.
My connection n flight took of before my flight came.
I'll definitely charge some money for this.
The Ukraine company didn't give me any food during the flight nor during my delayed flight waiting.
