After reading some negative reviews we had some concerns about our flight to Verona. We needn't have worried as we had a good flight experience.We had perfectly adequate leg room and were served a (free!) snack and a drink by pleasant cabin crew. As a matter of fact this airline scores better than other budget airlines with 23k of luggage...

The basic services offered by this airline are budget friendly, but you pay for extras. A suit case is 25 euros, you pay for early boarding and for seat selection. You can also buy a package deal that covers all three. The planes are small but offer enough led room. You are also allowed to bring one small suitcase and...

Worst experience ever. Fares may be less expensive, but flights are always delayed for hours. Seat was broken and could not be placed in upright position. Crew is inept. They spent 1 hour counting and re-counting the passengers, saying they were waiting for 5 more people, when in fact they had counted incorrectly and all confirmed passengers were already on...

Airline was so small and tight and they were too expensive to upgrade to the better seats. Also when it came to the food, you only had one choice and if you didn't like it, then you don't eat on a 9 hour flight. I am a tall guy and thought it would be fine in a regular seat because...

DO NOT fly on this airline. They took no interest in my lost bag. They just said call the delivery agent to get your bag. It is not my problem.

Aside from their not so great on line and at airport customer service, its been an ok experience but the double customs, layover and running from one end of Rome airport to another, including a little train ride...

We had wonderful flights on Meridiana between JFK and Palermo in May/June. Both flights were on time, we had less than five minutes wait to check in, and we were treated with complete courtesy and professionalism all the way. The seats were a little more narrow than customary, but the legroom was fine. The food wasn't great, but I had...

We flew business on Meridiana from JFK to Naples. The service was quite good, the cabin crew were attentive, and the airfare was reasonably priced. The plane was an older 767 with old style luggage bins (the kind that flip up). The seats are the "old" style "Dentist Chair" type seats in a 2-2-2 configuration, but we were able to...

Picture this: I'm all set in my aisle seat waiting for the plane to finish boarding. The seat to my left is as yet, unoccupied. My fingers are crossed, because these seats are super narrow-- even by modern standards. Just then, a flight attendant escorts a passenger from the front of the plane down the other aisle. She approaches the...

Just got to the airport and NOW we learnt that there is a 5h delay. We booked through our local travel agent. There was not any attempt to inform us. Now we will reach Milan at 23h and have no clue whether we will have transportation to the hotel. A day before we tried to contact the airline's WhatsApp number...
