Our flight from Izmir to Van had 40 minutes delay and no one showed any kinds of apologies,they didn't even say sorry.On our flight nothing was served for free not even water. Generally I was not satisfied with the flight but it is cheaper than Turkish airlines but now I know why.

Small plane with very little space between both the seats aisle and for the legs. Poor selection in beverages...they ran out of beer,cola and vodka. Maybe they did not stock the plane before take off? They were not able to provide the products they offer in the catalogue. But nice staff and a good pilot. All in all a nice...

There's plenty of leg room, service is nice and their staff are very helpful. The only downhill was there were too many crying chidlren during our flights, but I guest it's normal when you travel the during summer to a summer family destination. I would definitely fly with them again.

New plane with plenty of leg room, day time flights and departed on time, flight attendants were friendly and attentive, cheaper than other no frills airlines and included 20kg luggage. I would definitely fly with Sunexpress again. We were a group of 7 friends and we were all sat together.

I really did not expect much, and indeed, it was not worse than Ryanair, at least regarding the check-in procedure. You can book better seats (and preferential boarding) upfront with extra legroom for 20 Euro each way, so, also ok. But then the lines at the airport in Frankfurt were just ridiculous - why do you bother to check in...

We flew back from our holiday in Turkey. It was the only direct day time flight. Although like any other budget airlines you've to pay for all the additional items, the most expensive seat was still cheaper than some other British airlines. We took off at 08:00am and landed on time in Luton. The flight was full and people struggled...
