Sooooooooo long. We were late and boarding was long
Overall experience was ok. Flight was overbooked and my travel partner was put on standby while I had a confirmed seat. Not sure how it happened. We were told the flight was booked separately but I booked on kayak.com. In the end we both got on the flight and was even able to exchange seats and sit together. Overall flight experience was good. It was a short 1.5 hour flight from Rome to Paris.
Pros: "Boarding and crew was ok. Aircraft also not bad. But five hour delay with little communication or compensation."
Cons: "5 hour delay. Communication"
Pros: "Timely departure and quick boarding."
Cons: "Seats were not comfortable and staff was not exactly tentative."
Cons: "Kayak sucks. I chose to buy ticket w kayak and took me to vayama (another horrible site). The ticket they sold me, which was not cheap, didn’t let me check in online and didn’t say that I was gonna have to pay 200 euros at airport to check in 2 bags!!!! A disaster everything."
Pros: "Staff was friendly and happy."
Cons: "Seats are not the most comfortable."
Pros: "Flight reservation was cancelled at airport - gate agents could not allow us to board. We were told reservation had been cancelled."
Cons: "Refused to sell ticket from start or at least receive a cancellation ticket for the flight"
Pros: "worst airlineEVER , canceled the flight did'nt offer any help"
Pros: "Nothing on the ground. Prior to boarding there was chaos among the crew members and the public. The flight was as usual with Vueling delayed; for technical reasons. However no one knew what was happening. No crew member gave a simple explanation of what was happening. Order was not maintsined"
Cons: "Everything, like simply explaining to the long waiting passengers what was going on. But Vueling is 90 pc late. They treat passengers as if they could not care less because they are working unhappily We can simply compare with other airlines. Vueling gets first price as worse airline I know."
Pros: "Kayak never sent me a confirmation of the purchase kd the tickets. We arrived at the airport (family of 7, with 3 kids) and the reservation was non-existing. We were not able to board the flight and had to buy another ticket at a much more expensive price in addition to losing an entire day in paris"
Cons: "Kayak never sent me a confirmation of the purchase kd the tickets. We arrived at the airport (family of 7, with 3 kids) and the reservation was non-existing. We were not able to board the flight and had to buy another ticket at a much more expensive price in addition to losing an entire day in paris"
Cons: "This is a budget airline. It was a decent plane, the crew was very friendly. Being a budget airline, food on board has to be purchased separately. There is no entertainment on board. The seats didn’t recline. Overall it was good value for your money."
Pros: "Because kayak did not alerted me my flight had to be moved to Miami since is the only city that provides passports the same day. This extra expense costed me over 400$ in hotels gas and extra parking costs."
Cons: "Kayak services were terrible and I do not plan to use them again. The website should have alerted me that I needed a passport valid for longer than 3 months to my flight for Spain."
Cons: "Somehow my bag didn’t make the allowance, and I had to pay $40, everyone else had equal baggage and were allowed to use them as carry on except me! NEVER FLYING WITH VUELING AGAIN!!!!!!"
Pros: "Fast trip"
Cons: "No internet"
Cons: "We had to wait for someone... Couldn't leave with out them. Departed an hour late."
Pros: "Getting on a plane. Not the one I booked but got to wear I needed to go."
Cons: "Bought the flight 6 months prior. They give you the option to have a random seat, which i did. Apparently that means if people buy a seat, you might not get on the plane. Because they will sell your seat to someone willing to pay more."
Pros: "Crew good"
Cons: "Booked extra legroom didn't get it."
Pros: "we reached our destination alive"
Cons: "We sat on the aircraft on the tarmac for two hours, no explanation. Food and drink were served 20 mins before landing, some people didn’t get a chance to have a drink. Staff were disorganised confused and rude. My debit card was handed to another passenger because the steward had no idea what he was doing. Beyond awful!"
Cons: "The flight that was suppose to leave at 3 pm only took off past 11:00 pm"
Cons: "Rude attendant at the gate"
Pros: "Getting off the plane."
Cons: "Everything else. This was the worst plane experience ever. The flight was super super delayed (as were several other Vueling flights) and we stood in the bag drop line for over 2 hours because there was no system and everyone was confused. Then when we finally got through they updated the flight status every 10 min confusing everyone cause the time kept changing and no one knew what was going on. Then they finally posted the gate and we had to run to the other side of the airport and then they delayed the flight again so it was over 3 1/2 hours delayed In the end. Then boarding was a mess and the plane itself was pitiful for how expensive that flight was. This is never going to be a company of choice for me. Definitely a last resort."
Cons: "Was late, without any notification"
Pros: "Crew and Flight attendants were helpful, responsive and cheerful before, during and after the flight."
Cons: "I was not able to check into the flight online as the Kayak link sent me to an unknown page. It was not an Iberia flight but was operated by Veuling airlines, however was still unable to check in by going directly to the Veuling website. If you're not going to be allowed to check in online, that is one, thing, but it isn't great to be given a link that doesn't work and then be nervous that you are not going to get on your flight. The boarding process should be changed as it is a free for all and people are waiting in line on the jetway, when really they are waiting for the buses. I believe the plane was at Terminal 2, so we had to switch terminals via bus. Just seemed as though there should be a better process for boarding than lining up down the middle of the terminal or manage the process differently as we were boarding buses."
Cons: "At the check in gate the man made us pay for the luggage we carried on the plane"
Cons: "Delayed again and again"
Pros: "We arrived safely"
Cons: "Vueling—couldn’t figure out how to have us pay extra money for overweight bags It took us almost an hour to get thru the line bc our bags were too heavy, then the agent couldn’t figure out how to charge us for the extra $, so after 15 min, they just let us go without paying Then, it too forever to get thru security THEN, our flight was delayed, but they still told us to go to the gate and board, even tho there was no crew yet And then, we had to go down 2 flights of steps to take a bus to the plane and then take a flight of steps up to the plane. Then, our seats were dirty with cups and garbage Then the captain said we needed to refuel. Said it would take 5 more minutes but it was more like 25"
Pros: "On time departure"
Cons: "Checking line with no information, rude customer services, cabin crew very rude and discriminatory system, the flight attendant in charge of the cabin crew made us moved our Carry on three row far from our seats, despite the fact that we paid more for those seats and that we were among the first to board the plane. He made a racist facial expression toward us."
Cons: "I was told that my carry on luggage was too big for the overhead bin and had to pay 35 euro. The flight attendant attempted to fit it in the bin and it fit just fine. So thanks...I paid for something I didn’t have to."
Pros: "...and don’t really do that in a way helpful to the passenger! I couldn’t get my boarding passes from Vueling’s website, as the login details as required by Vueling, are actually those used by who “bought” the ticket - some random email used by Kayak / Lastminute.com, and not mine! Crazy! Moreover, the whole business processes that Vieling use are just dijointed. even getting help I still never received by boarding passes via email."
Cons: "Worse, Vueling charge you, on checking, to “choose seats” with no obvious way of not paying for them! I’m sure here was a link somewhere - but could I see it?! Nope! that and my suitcases, and I had paid over €100 extra on top of my initial flight cost. BA or Easyjet next time!"
Pros: "Quick and cheap flight from Rome to Pairs for sightseeing"
Cons: "Boarding was moved at the time of boarding and sounds like that is normal so pay attention"
Pros: "Cheap, clean, great on board crew. I arrived early for my flight and was able to change my flight to an earlier one cheaply, quickly and hassle free. Excellent customer service."
Cons: "Shocking check in. Only 2 desks open queued for 45 mins just to check in. Despite arriving in plenty of time. This was a Saturday lunchtime and the queue quickly built up and despite several members of staff being around no further desks were opened up until the queue became huge."
Pros: "I didn’t have the issues checking in that many have mentioned. I did have pay 140€ to check my bags because it wasn’t included in my fare. My advice is prepay for baggage, it’s much cheaper."
Pros: "crew was friendly and timely ..providing regular snack/beverage service on a relatively short flight"
Cons: "beverage/snack service should be complimentary like itbia on most other flights"
Pros: "Good price, on time, comfortable seat, crew was friendly both at boarding and on plane."
Cons: "The only thing i didnt like was that when we boarded, we got on a bus to take us to the plane. I had paid extra for priority boarding and seating but i ended up being one of the last people on the plane. It did not end up being an issue because there was plenty of ovwrhead space for my carryons but it could have been. Wifi would also be nice. Even if i had to pay wxtra for it."
Pros: "The electronic check-in was breathtakingly simple but this airlines excels at optimal usage of available space - to the extreme discomfort of its clients. I am of average height and my flight was an exercise in pain endurance."
Cons: "Zero legroom"
Cons: "An hour late to take off, then the captain didn't turn off the seat belt sign for another 45 minutes in clear skies. My friend had to use the restroom but the flight attendants locked them and yelled at her everytime she tried. Very rude."
Cons: "we had a terrible time flying through connecting flights and on top of that they charged 70 euros for baggage from rome to paris and then we had to check in again at paris, extremely painful and stressful given the short amount of time. i would never ask someone to do this again."
Pros: "Selph check"
Cons: "No clear signage at aireport barcelona"
Pros: "Spacious, punctual, friendly"
Pros: "Easy enough boarding... our flight coming into BCN was delayed due to weather, so we were cutting it very close for the connection. Vueling crew took care of our late check in etc."
Cons: "DId not have the food. No wifi or entertainment"
Pros: "Flight attendants were nice, and the aircraft was clean."
Cons: "Flat out the worst flying experience I've ever had. The bag checkin processes was a nightmare; I showed up super early to the airport, with more than enough time to check my bag and board without issue. The bag checkin line didn't move for over an hour, and while there were still tons of people waiting to check their bags for flights that were soon departing, most of the counter employees packed up and left. When someone pointed out that we would miss our flights, the attendants said "my shift is over" and walked away. At this point, the line broke and passengers started to cut the line, two people nearly got into a fight, airport security even had to come. My bag was finally checked five minutes before the flight left (!!!!!). I was unsure if I'd make the flight, or if my bag would make it on the aircraft. The worst part is that throughout their incompetent checkin processes, the attendants were all incredibly rude. I am NEVER flying this airline again, even if I have to pay twice as much for my ticket."
Pros: "The seats were comfortable and the flight attendants were courteous and polite."
Cons: "Our flight left 20 min late but we landed on time so it wasn't terrible."
Cons: "Small. Narrow seats. Late flight"
Cons: "They lied to us that the connection flight from Barcelona to Tel Aviv was canceled and therefore we must stay at Granada. They also said they could not fly us to Barcelona because all the hotels there were full occupancy (sounds absurd). Only after we insisted on flying to Barcelona we discovered that the flight to Tel Aviv took place as usual. To this day, I do not know why an airline needs to lie in such an ugly way. Note that this was not a misunderstanding or language difficulties. The English of the airline team and mine is excellent. This behavior is dismissive, irresponsible, and embarrassing"
Pros: "clean aircraft. smiling smart and friendly staff. on time departure. ultra quick bag retrieval. would highly reccomend"
Pros: "Don't know I slept."
Cons: "They were get 6th disorganized at check in and boarding."
Cons: "Really not the same quality/level of service."
