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
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!
We couldn´t get the boarding pass on line although we tried many times during the previous 24 hours. They made us to pay a suplement of 30 euros in the airport. We have felt cheated.
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: "could not be delayed"
Contra: "I missed my flight because my previous flight was delayed 2.5 hrs"
Pro: "To be going home!"
Contra: "Female crew taking orders then taking ages to ring drinks a d they move on to others instead of finishing what they were doing. Then you're lucky if you get given 1 sugar and no spoon lol."
Pro: "Food was excellent; boarding a litlle bit crowded, but didn't notice as had been busy; crew has been kind and helpful"
Contra: "Unconfortable chair seats; seatbelt too short; tables too low for tall ppl"
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!"
Contra: "I was not allowed to take the push chair on board even though on the inbound flight was ok to do so. I have purchased the push chair especially so I can take it on board. Disappointed."
Pro: "I canceled the flight 6 weeks ago, no refund issued."
Contra: "I canceled the flight 6 weeks ago, no refund issued."
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."
Pro: "Stupid survey can’t eliminate category that doesn’t ajgpply"
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: "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"
Contra: "It was very hot on the plane. There was no legroom in my seat, it was very uncomfortable."
Contra: "They change the fly departing time with 12 hours before I was flying"
Pro: "On time ,clean aircraft..."
Contra: "Crew was very serious...a smile can make a difference....."
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 !"
Pro: "Flight on time . Attentive crew . Good price ."
Contra: "Lack of leg room ."
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: "The flight was punctual"
Contra: "I got charged twice for luggage and couldn't get a refund"
Contra: "Rude crew, not organised work , not enough space for legs"
Pro: "The food they offer to purchase. Easy check in at the airport."

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: "Cheap in price, unexpected free snack on outbound flight, relaxed attitude to luggage, both hold and carry on, chartered unscheduled flight after original was cancelled"
Contra: "The fact our original flight was cancelled and we were delayed by 7.5 hours. They communication from the airport crew was little to non and flight time changed 4 times. They even told us difinitively that we would board at a certain time only for us to actually board nearly 2 hours later. They, without a doubt, knew the rescheduled flight time but strung us on anyway - I believe this was so they could save money on hotels"
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."
Pro: "Reliable and friendly staff. Even offered a free soft drink and sandwich on a short haul flight."
Contra: "Space to sit, especially when seated in the middle"
Pro: "comfy seats and a breakfast thrown in !"
Contra: "not much"
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: "am ajuns chiar mai devreme, personalul foarte dragut si amabil , scaunul comod , mancare si bauturi bune."
Contra: "No online check-in. 1 hour waiting for nothing."
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"
Pro: "The crew is very good"
Pro: "Seemed like a technical problem. The pilot wouldn't give up any information."
Contra: "Small seats with little legroom"
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: "Screwed again for carry on bag which I attempted to upgrade from 7kg to 10kg online, paid my €20 to learn at the gate that it changed from a "carry on" to a "to be checked in" bag. I was td I would have to pay another €25 to take it on board. I just refused and left my bag there with them. Tired of Ryanair deliberately screwing people fo add ons especially when there is no deliberate intention involved in the action. No empathy or understanding just screw the Customer at every opportunity. No longer a Ryanair Customer, its Service and Respect that I prefer,,,"
Pro: "I like a few other people on the same flight were informed on checking in at Rome airport that we had no luggage drop. We were sure that we had paid for luggage for the return voyage. This meant that I was charged 80euros extra. Now obviously the site for booking did not. Make this clear or so many wouldn’t make the same mistake. I think the least that could have been done would be to charge 25 euros per bag. I my husband, brother and his wife will not travel Ryanair again."
Pro: "'ve Ry quick"
Contra: "40 mins late"
Contra: "The heat, insane air con not working"
Contra: "They made is walk around barriers carrying our bags slowly shuffling forward to get into the seated area in front of the gate. It took 15 mins . They could set up the ticket check inside the seated area so we could relax."
Pro: "The price is generally good"
Contra: "Ryanair broke my bag and damaged my other bag"
Contra: "Was told at boarding gate for a visa check stamp requirement. Admittedly it was mentioned in a casual way in the boarding pass,but wasn't a border control requirement. The airline could have done it there. But was denied boarding, waited for 6 hours to catch next flight and further connections."
Contra: "expensive ticket when you add up all the fees, plus it’s stressful and chaotic."
Contra: "Flight bit cramped in seats"
Pro: "It took off and landed safely."
Contra: "1.5 hours late. No air conditioning Cabin crew not attentive, and had the intercom turned up, so when she spoke it was like nails scrapping down blackboard. Minimal information coming from the cockpit."
Pro: "Price; travel light, and take own food and it’s fine."
Contra: "Wait for the drinks/food service, and we would be on the way into land before they reach the middle of the plane on London -Dublin flight"
Pro: "Just a pleasant flight with pleasant crew. Couldn't ask for more!!"
Pro: "Quick efficient flught"
Contra: "Didn’t pay for priority booking as I had my seat prepaid and only one bag . Why would you pay for priority booking?? I think the system could be simpler"
Contra: "Toilets needed a good clean, they also smelled stale"
Pro: "The staff were professional"
Contra: "Bad language and rude conversations by some passages."
Pro: "Straight forward flight"
Contra: "Having to pay for my family to sit together, this could have been offered with the automatic seating allocation, there were lots of 4 seats together . It seems that you are intentionally separated so that you pay to change."
Pro: "Quick announcement of gate"
Contra: "Eased through security in Lisbon; only to be left standing for at least 40 mind; no announcement from staff. In total our flight was delayed by 90mins and now we have missed our coach for the last leg of the journey! Not happy at all!!!"
Pro: "Crew were nice"
Contra: "Seating was cramped"
Contra: "Delayed 3 hours and not updates or water available very poorly managed"

Pro: "Crew seemed nice"
Contra: "An hour late to arrive. Paid for priority boarding and was taxied to plane to priority boarding was waist of money"
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."
