wow those shitty services… I would be ashamed to work for blue air. here are 11 reasons why blue air is a mockery: 1. They sent me six emails (SIX. 6) from the moment I bought the tickets until the departure day, announcing flight departure modification times. let that sink in; 6 messages announcing new hours. 2. this morning‘s flight from Chania lasted 20 minutes more than previously announced and than the Bucharest to Chania flight one week ago. 3. my entire row was not asked whether we needed anything from the shopping cart. as a result, I approached a steward later on and he said I should go by myself (?!?!!!😂🤦🏼♀️) to pick up what I wanted from the back of the plane, but that I should hurry because we would be landing in 55 minutes😂😂. we obviously didn’t🤦🏼♀️ and apparently he was also very sure I would not be able to finish my water in that amount of time. The plane wasn’t full and the cabin crew consisted of four persons. I am absolutely positive that had they been working for a different airline on a higher pay, they wouldn’t have made me do their job myself lol. 4. another interesting fact is the pointlessness of turning on the AC before landing. it’s obviously not a question of airing the closed space of the plane, since people are still in it, obviously. then why on earth would one take the conscious m decision of making all those people freeze because you want to have the AC on 16° while landing, why?!?! 5. is anybody else going mad because there are no pockets on the back of the chairs on these old sorry-ass blue air planes?😳😳😳 there are just some very rigid ones able to fit just their catalog, paper bag and safety instructions. if you have a book or a cup you will simply hold it in your hand until forever lol. 6. funnily enough, a friend had told me prior that she flew with them eight times. Three were canceled and five had delays of more than six hours😳😳😳😳😳. 7. it took blue air two years to refund her the money for her canceled flights. 8. Other fun fact, it turns out, is that they have the world’s fourth oldest aircraft. 9. and another one: their oldest plane is about 17 years old. 10. what’s also funny (as in stupid) is that they charge you €100 for two bags and you’re not able to pay for them using three different cards that work on other websites and using two different browsers and also a phone. beat this!! 11. and the final points being that they send you annoying emails up to the very last minute before flying urging you to add services that you already bought😅. in my case, when I tried to do the check-in, I received the clear message that online check-in is not available for that flight on both my laptop and phone. However at almost the same time I kept receiving emails urging me to pay for online check-in for the very same flight of course🤣🤣🤣. 🤯🤯🤯and wow. it’s really hard to top blue air when it comes to being shitty.
Flight delayed without explanation
No food or entertainment. Reasonable seats
You asked about food and entertainment, but there was none. The seats were uncomfortable.
Daca tot se schimba avionul, ar trebui sa se tina cont si de faptul ca DACA AI PLATIT LOC EXTRASPACE TREBUIE SA BENFICIEZI DE EL! Am avut platit loc extra space care s-a transformat într-un loc normal. De toata jjena!
announcements in english. 5 hour delay, asked twice (and so did other passengers), but no updates in any other language.
Contra: "This really is more about the flight from paris to Bucharest: I’ve literally never experienced a worse ticketing and boarding process. Old planes, ride staff (even by remarkably curt and abrupt Romanian standards). Broken inline experience. Overall unpleasant. Seems to be flown only by Romanian families with hundreds of pounds of luggage. Like a caravan."
Contra: "I missed my flight because my previous flight was delayed 2.5 hrs"
Pro: "The flight departed on time and arrived the same. The seat was a tad bit narrow for me but then I am a tall guy at 6'5". Crew was very professional. Ticket cost was a third of what the other airlines were offering for a Sunday fare. I'll definitely use BlueAir again!"
Pro: "I canceled the flight 6 weeks ago, no refund issued."
Contra: "I canceled the flight 6 weeks ago, no refund issued."
Pro: "Boarding was quick and we arrived on time."
Contra: "When getting to Bucharest we were taken by bus and didn’t have a gate."
Pro: "Everything was quite fast, we were like 15 min before the plan ready with boarding, but then somebody needed medical assistabce and we left 15 min delayed. But that's ok, it's nobody's fault. Baggage arrived very fast in Hamburg."
Contra: "A minus for the Crew because when we arrived in Hamburg, people started to open the baggage boxes although we were still rolling (like 5 min too early) and they didn't say anything, so more people were following. When we arrived, almost all the people who could, had the baggage already with them. This happened in the past but the Crew stopped the people on time."
Contra: "I was unable to check n online (although the process was intitated well earlier than 12 hours prior to departure). The system charged y credit card for a seat reservation and then crashed with an error, both on my phone and laptop browser. When I called at 9:00 am (when their offices are open) to ask for help with what happened, I received no answer other than, "the check in system has just closed. I am unable to help you in any way". I booked another flight with another carrier, and did not take this flight., not do I plan to book with them in the future That being said, it is not the job of the employee to defend a poorly working system. Services need upgrade asap."
Contra: "flight delayed by more than 1 hour"
Contra: "I have booked with 2 checked in baggage pieces. On check in I was told no baggage was paid and I had to pay 100€ for the baggage."
Pro: "Boarding was good, flight and crew were good, had refreshments and food which came as a surprise. Overall I had a very good flight."
Contra: "I liked everything"
Pro: "The added touches make all the difference! We didn’t expect free food and was delighted to receive breakfast. The chairs were much more comfortable than any other plane I’ve been on due to the adjustable head rest, and as a regular flyer to Cyprus, this made a difference. The sweets served just before landing is an excellent idea and something that we do need due to our ears, so this was appreciated. staff were attentive and pleasant."
Contra: "To have the menu and duty free booklet at the beginning of the flight would have been helpful."
Pro: "Flight Attendants very good"
Contra: "Dusseldorf to Warsaw: Boarding terrible including assistance and messaging. - Boarding chaos - Late flight out of Dusseldorf (about an hour) - Just before landing, pilot announced all connections would be made - (and even mentioned chicago) - Connecting flight was gone when I arrived at gate, and I was quick in getting to gate from prior flight - next flight caused 5 hour layover in Warsaw Warsaw to Chicago Boarding terrible including assistance and messaging. - Boarding chaos - Late flight our ot Warsaw (about an hour) - no messaging at gate about reason for delay - kept increasing departure by 5 minute increments; started at 16:40 ended 17:05 (I beleive) - once boarding was complete, pilot said delay was due to wait for connections (boarding was an hour and 15 minutes late). Very frustrated"
Pro: "They are more professional and helpful. Really seemed like they knew what they were doing. The flight crew was accommodating and polite. The plane was very comfortable"
Contra: "The plane seemed very old, toilet in poor condition."
Contra: "7hour delayin onnecting flight! Seats on plane torn and very uncomfortable, meal booked but no food available."
Contra: "Flight was rescheduled for 3 hours later than original departure. Check in opened less than two hours before the rescheduled flight time so everyone was stuck waiting at check-in for hours. We couldnt even go in and relax inside at restaurants or the gate because online check in wasnt available. Then the flight was further delayed with no news about when the new take off would be or why the delay. Finally boarded a tiny plane that had propellers and a loud take off, if you easily fright on planes probably not the best choice for you. And then someone started smoking on the flight and the attendants had to announce again that smoking wasnt allowed. On and off throughout the flight it smelled like someone was smoking so I wonder if it was even coming from the cockpit."
Pro: "Flight was delay by 1 hour consequently my luggage did Ot arrive with me to Katowice on top of that there is no more flights today from waw to kat with lot Airline"
Contra: "Serive to pay extra luggage very very slow"
Pro: "The free snack (biscuits and drink). The hard-working attendant (having to stuff all the baggage into the overhead lockers). Boarding at the rear door enabling me to get to my seat early."
Contra: "A slight whistling noise coming from the rear of the cabin, not too bothersome but it's there (I think the plane is getting a bit old). Not being able to disembark from the rear."
Contra: "It was very hot on the plane. There was no legroom in my seat, it was very uncomfortable."
Pro: "Crew, polite and friendly"
Contra: "delay of more than 6 hours and incorrect information"
Pro: "company gave out free drinks and snacks"
Contra: "They change the fly departing time with 12 hours before I was flying"
Pro: "The flight went well."
Contra: "Bag drop off was terrible and stressful. We arrived 2.5 Hours early to drop the ONE suitcase and have brunch. We queued for 1.5 Hours to then be blocked as all six counters were given over to another flight and people who arrived LATER then us for our flight got to go first. It was incredibly stressful and frustrating especially when I checked in online before arriving at the airport. We had to rush and run through the airport and board at final call. In fact it would put me off flying with Blue Air again."
Contra: "Flight was cancelled a week before and didn't get a replacement flight. Got half of my money back. Will never book a blue air flight again !"
Contra: "The actual flight was good, but to try and check in on line is murder..the website needs a totally new revamp, both to & from Larnaca I was unable to check in on line. You enter all your details press confirm and it is supposed to go to the next instruction, but a message appeared then took you back to your previous page and you had to input all your details again..this happened many times before I eventually gave up."
Pro: "Arrived early to destination"
Contra: "Lack of entertainment also limited drinks"
Pro: "The flight was punctual"
Contra: "I got charged twice for luggage and couldn't get a refund"
Contra: "I had to make my own way home from Manchester.. plane diverted due weather."
Pro: "The food they offer to purchase. Easy check in at the airport."
Contra: "Better seat pitch. I'm not a tall man, but the space is very small."
Pro: "On time , crew good... no complaints"
Pro: "free breakfast great staff"
Pro: "Free drinks, cheap flight and fairly comfortable!"
Contra: "No allocated seat."
Pro: "staff very friendly and polite ..airplane wasnt full so i get the chance to have a nice fly with my 2 little sons"
Pro: "Everything was awesome!!! I am going to buy only from you my next flights."
Contra: "The agent lady on the desk did nothing to help us get on our flight. She refused to identify herself. We intend to sue the company for the damages caused to us because of this bad attitude."
Contra: "Space to sit, especially when seated in the middle"
Pro: "Leaving more or less on time serving food & beverages on a low cost flight Even though I didnt eat (carb free, there were'nt any friut or vegtebles) yet the idea was thoughtfull."
Contra: "Seats rather narrow"
Pro: "First time flying with them. Strongly recommended!"
Pro: "The service was OK, we flew on time and the flight itself was pleasant."
Contra: "The interior of the aircrafts looked old and a bit dirty. The feeling is that you are flying on a poor low cost service."
Pro: "I was surprised and pleased as well that the flight attendant listen to me when I mentioned that it's very cold in the cabin and in less than 30 minutes the temperature was changed and bearable"
Contra: "Not applicable"
Contra: "Ryanair announced that we could postpone the flights without any cost due to corona virus and when I tried to reach them/to change the flight date the change tax was still there."
Contra: "Being on time + quiet fellow passengers"
Pro: "Was cheap"
Contra: "No charge for carry on"
Contra: "Check in process is stupid and staff was very unhelpful."
Pro: "Good pilot"
Pro: "The crew was nice."
Contra: "The flight was delayed for six hours. They said that it was due to weather, but other planes were departing and arriving while we were wasting a day of vacation in the airport with little information about what was going on."
Pro: "There was no legroom, the sandwiches is missing (not available at all)"
Contra: "Onboarding was like for animalls. After we pass throug the gates, were sticked into the tunnel for 15-20 min in hot air..."
Pro: "I like the aircraft"
Contra: "The change inside the plane.My seats was changed several times."
Contra: "Der Preis alles muss extra bezahlt werden"
Pro: "Ease of travel. Priority service."
Pro: "They denied the me boarding,I want my money back"
Pro: "Although I had a 40 minutes flight, it was really good. The crew were very amiable and fun. All amazing!"
Contra: "I didn't like that I had to pay for additional ticket. the internet at the airport was not working fast enough. the attendant at the customer services was yelling through the window the seconds in front of other customers (she was mad). My ticket didn't download fast enough therefor I had to purchase a second ticket. That was not cool."
Contra: "I would be great if the flight attendants quieter than the aeroplane engines. My earbuds are no expensive enough."
Pro: "Friendly crew"
Contra: "Flight was delayed by an hour-no explanation provided"
Contra: "Booked 3 flights all on Ryanair for a trip inside Portugal. The booking agent, Gotogate.com, and Ryanair left me deserted. Some error occurred and I received the same flight booking # for all 3 the flights. I discovered this when trying to retrieve my boarding pass for the second flight. Neither company fixed the problem and I could not board the flight. I ended up having to rent a car and drive to Porto (6 hours away). Neither company have anyone that can assist with these issues on the weekend. The worst experience I could have had on my birthday vacation."
Contra: "It would be amazing to get 30 minutes without trying to sell something and constant use of the microphone for useless promotions. I don't really get on flights so I can buy a watch, a perfume or a scratch card, no need to spend 5 minutes trying to sell it."
Pro: "On time and that’s about it"
Contra: "Hot, cramped, slow boarding and ridiculous wait times at the bag drop in. Almost missed our flight despite getting there 2.5 hours before boarding"
Pro: "They were professional and efficient"
Contra: "It was required to check in prior to arrival to airport to avoid a fee. I did not have internet access still I arrived. I had to pay 55 euro for a simple check in. Not fair to folks who do not use data for internet nor WiFi. A email could be sent 72 hours but that does not mean people check all emails or they even have access to the web. It’s not a fair or smart business move, I will not book with them again."
Pro: "Not much to like."
Contra: "At gate there was 40 minute delay to board with mention of what was going on. Once on board we waited another 40 minutes to be able to take off. In flight the crew was rude and inattentive."
Contra: "Security is ridiculous, cramped spaces, long lines, dirty."
Pro: "The flight was fine, comfortable and despite turbulence (which I actually enjoy) uneventful. We could see both experienced and new staff working effectively together 1 star for food and entertainment because we took part in neither"
Contra: "The incident when boarding could have been handled far better than experienced A passenger already on the plane mistook light shining through the vapour created by the wing De icing process and claimed the wing was on fire which lead to the plane being evacuated First issue was that all disembarking the plane had nowhere to go and were not given any instructions Secondly the return to the waiting lounge was not organised well leaving passengers roaming about the lounge and unsure what to do"
Pro: "El precio es inigualable con respecto a las demás aerolíneas"
Contra: "Las azafatas venden muchas cosas para un vuelo tan corto y es molesto"
Contra: "Flight delayed for 2,5 hours. Forced to spend €40 or terrible aeroport food. Should have used the train - would get to my destination faster, cheaper and would already have had a great meal at a restaurant. Never again."
Contra: "Flight cancelled and had to spend 4X to book another comparable flight."
Contra: "Late from Passport control - wouldn’t hold plane for us - missed flight - no others that dat"
Contra: "We had technical problems so our flight was late one hour"
Contra: "The requirement to pay for a boarding pass after having checked in as required. The US airlines do not have this requirement. This is a very negative experience. Our gate was changed at the very last moment."
Pro: "Friendly staff"
Contra: "Seats were not to comfortable. It was a short flight so okay. Would not want to do a longer (+ 2 hours) on those seats Boarding is unpleasant as too many people on small space."
Contra: "...after everyone had already boarded. Then put us on a bus to Porto."
Pro: "The staff were very friendly and professional and managed to have a laughter with. Definitely a plus"
Contra: "The delays. It's not the first time travelling with Ryanair and not my first delay either. But overall it was a pleasant trip"
Pro: "Very good price for flight. Dont need to pay foe seats if you dont want to and can avoid baggage fees with carryon. Staff very friendly. Short and sweet flight."
Contra: "Asked for boarding pass again at plane door after we had gone through the gate check. Unnecessary step that slowed the boarding process at the plane staircase."
Pro: "It got me home."
Contra: "Firstly, there were no sandwiches (hot or cold) available on a late afternoon flight, so the remaining food options were poor. Secondly, my £7 Gin and Tonic that I'd hardly touched slid right off the frankly useless trays and into my lap. The flight attendant literally threw me a few paper towels to help. I spent the remaining three hours of the flight soaking wet."
Contra: "Not available"
Contra: "Cramped seats. Did not disclose that you would have to pay an extra fee for seats if you wanted to select them (so I could sit with my husband). First time flying Ryanair. Did not know we had to print out our boarding passes ahead of time (until they emailed us a reminder the day before) or pay $15 each for the print out at the counter. The place we were staying didn't have a printer, so I had to waste a good deal of my vacation time dealing with this and finding a way to get it printed. I chatted with someone at Ryanair and they said the thing about printing your boarding passes was in the fine print. Why? This shouldn't be a secret!"
Contra: "Charges 50 euro per person if you don't check in two hours before. Doesn't matter if you actually buy it last minute (flight leaving within an hour), they will still charge you a penalty since you didn't check in more than 2 hours ago. When you try to explain it to the employees, they just stare at you, look at their piece of paper, and say you still have to pay. Absurd. Flight was delayed obviously. Seats are small and don't recline. A tall person should never fly with them. Obviously no entertainment. Don't even give you free water."
Pro: "Nothing,, missed flight because of 2 minutes I couldn't check one of my bags because was closed and nobody to help me had to purchase another ticket with another airline."
Contra: "The flight was delayed 3 hours. We stood at the gate in line for half an hour before we were taken back i side the airport. There was no announcement that we are reboarding"
Pro: "I can't think of any."
Contra: "Rude gate staff at Otopeni Airport insisting I place my hand luggage in the hold until I informed them I had priority seats. The whole concept of priority boarding goes out the window as boarding was via a bus"
Pro: "Late. 5 hours late. No one give us a excuse."
Pro: "Extra fees turned a $18 flight into almost $90. Never again will I fly Ryan Air"
Contra: "The extra fees make this airline no bargain . TAP would have been half the price."
Pro: "I hated everything"
Contra: "I will never fly with Ryanair again. They ripped off all my money. If I would have booked 2 tickets with British airways would have been much better and cheaper."
Pro: "on time and cheap, perfect!!"
