Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Perfect flight."
Cons: "All was ok."
Cons: "Flight delayed for 7 hours, no compensation, no notification, crew was also unwelcoming"
Cons: "It is upsetting when you are not able to check in through the final destination with Air Moldova when you have to change flights. When you have luggage it is even more upsetting."
Cons: "We arrived for our flight 1 hour before the flight. They told us we were late then forced us to check one of our carryons because it weighed over 8 KG. (not too big just weighed too much) and was not a problem carrying on other flight. 10 Euros. We arrived at the gate 30 minutes before take-off and they had not started boarding yet. We were then pulled out of the boarding line and told that we had to pay a late fee of 60 Euros each because we were late. 180 Euros! We had to go back to the cashier counter in the ticket terminal to pay and then again go through customs/passport and transit screening. We still made it back to the gate in time to board and leave by departure time. We then waited for passengers from another connecting flight to arrive and board so we then left about 30 minutes late. Then the air conditioning was broken to we fumed in 90 degree heat all the way to St. Petersburg."
Pros: "I’m 6’4 and had enough space, which was nice. Surprisingly tasty sandwiches served, as well water, juice, soda, tee and coffee- all included in the ticket price."
Pros: "Everything was great, the flight attendants were very pleasant. And the service was good. I enjoyed the flight!"
Cons: "Everything was good. Just the sandwich could be better :)"
Pros: "I received an email, text, and call about the change in schedule for the flight. They provided a free sandwich on the flight."
Cons: "They changed the time of the flight from 7:50 to 10:50 and then we didn’t end up departing until 11:15 so we arrived 3.5 hrs after I had initially planned."
Pros: "The only think I enjoyed is knowing I will never fly them again"
Cons: "What went right? From the hidden fees to the made up regulations where they try to charge 10-50 euros for CARRY ON BAGGAGE to the inefficient way in which they move you through the system to the 2.5 hr delay causing us to miss our connection because of "PERSONAL REASONS" according to our pilot (even though the plane landed on time and just sat on the tarmac)"
Cons: "COnnected from an international flight coming from philly. Due to customs we made it to our plane 30 Minutes before departure (8:52 for a 9:30 departure we were at the gate looking at our plane). Half the reason we were delayed is because not only did we have to pick up our bags and clear customs but we then had to recheck them, not a problem except for the fact that NO BODY WAS AT THE TICKET COUNTER. So Frankfurt airport was gracious enough to let us back through customs with our checked bags (after collecting them in baggage claim). When we showed up they wouldn't let us on the plane and charged us 350 dollar rebooking fee to leave the next day at 3 pm. it only gets worse as no one helped us to rebook, we had to call a number then then had us write an email to the company. I am still beside my self on how terrible of an experience this was as we had to do all of this calling from the Frankfurt airport because no one would help us in person (using skype)."
Pros: "It was nice to serve food on such a short flight. The plane was tiny, and the crew was friendly."
Cons: "We paid full price for the flight, but we parked in Frankfurt at some very distant lot, no jetway, so far away from the terminal that there was only a cargo plane nearby. Even the budget airlines were parked closer. At these ticket prices, Air Moldova could park at the terminal and provide jetway disembarkation."
Pros: "On time Enough leg room Service"
Cons: "Had to pay for the baggage, not sure why 1st bag is not free...? Tickets were not cheap - 1 bag should be included for this price. No vegetarian food options available."
Pros: "Plane was not full, so I had more room. My baggage made it on the plane despite the very short transfer time. I made it."
Cons: "Plane was old and somewhat worn. Rows very close together. Minimal food offering with no choices."
Cons: "They would not let me board the plane because the flights to get to mink, Belarus had a change of plane in Moscow. They demanded that I have a Russian visa. I explained repeatedly that I am only transiting through Moscow and am not leaving the secured airport area. Still, they did not allow me to board the plane. I had to cancel the flight and buy a new ticket from a different airline that did not transit through Moscow. Kayak and Belavia must tell the passenger prior to ticket purchase that if the flight goes out trough Moscow a Russian visa is required. in my case, they never told me this until I arrived in the airport to board the plane. A terrible experience."
Pros: "Stewardesses were excellent"
Cons: "No leg room"
Pros: "Great stewardesses"
Cons: "Flight delay"
Pros: "Nothing! Late and no explanation or pardon!"
Cons: "Flew from London to Moscow with a 40min layover in Chisinau. I had to get off the plane with all my belongings, go into the airport, through security and check back in only to board the exact same airplane to go to Moscow! The most complete waste of time and energy ever experienced! Complete rubbish as the Londoners would say. Almost missed the flight and it was delayed because of the 5-6 of us that were in the same predicament. Air Moldova, you guys need to change your ways."
Cons: "Seats don't recline, no entertainment on board."
Pros: "Good, quick flight. Nice, polite crew and good food."
Cons: "My flight to Frankfurt was late, which caused me to miss my connecting flight from Germany. Had to pay out of pocket for new ticket as Air Modova refused to rebook me or acknowledge that their filght was cause of missing my connection. Will fly in/out of Moldova with Lufthansa next time."
Pros: "Great food Great crew"
Cons: "Delayed 4h Had to pay for luggage"
Cons: "Nothing . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . ."
Pros: "Organizare buna si prinz gustos"
Cons: "The lunch"
Cons: "Great flight"
Pros: "Air Moldova staff did work out a series of other flights that got me to my needed destination after I called for a better solution than was offered."
Cons: "I did not like that the flight was cancelled on short notice and the initial rebooking I was given was for 15 hours after my scheduled flight (which caused a domino affect that would cost me an additional $150). I did get a different booking when I called and requested it, but it turned a 9-hour travel day into a 24-hour travel; I only did not lose money because ItaliaRail was flexible with me and my hotel in my final destination allowed me a very late check-in. I did not like that Air Moldova did not contact me - my online booking source notified me of the change, not Air Moldova."
Pros: "It was a great flight! The staff were very friendly!"
Cons: "We had to get our bags from baggage claim in Frankfurt and re-check them before our flight and it was difficult because we didn't have much time"
Cons: "I have purchased tickets ( 1 bag is included ). At the time of the check in they charged me $20 for the 1st bag ( each way) . The total price for the trip went $40 up. Payment was accepted in cash only , with no receipt given!"
Cons: "The seat did not recline. The food (sandwich) was mediocre. The airport in Moldova is small, uncomfortable, hectic, and quite crowded."
Pros: "On time. Friendly crew. Relatively new tidy Embraer aircraft. Catering included wine in economy, although this was a short-haul flight."
Cons: "Bus boarding in Vienna added some inconvenience, but still ok."
Cons: "Less time at the AirPort after landing"
Pros: "It was affordable"
Cons: "Customer service"
Pros: "Took off on time"
Cons: "Random seat allocation due to not paying the extra fee?"
Pros: "Service and comfort means ryanair"
Pros: "Ryanair still don’t have enough leg room for taller people. Very uncomfortable. Cheap but not that cheerful if you’re over 6 ft"
Cons: "More leg room or exit seats for taller people"
Pros: "Seat was fine considering the cost."
Cons: "Ok but i accidentally started queuing in the priority queue and was told that i needed to be in the other queue, even though i was there very early on. I think i should have been allowed to join the other queue at the same spot but went to the back of the other queue. Apart from that it was fine"
Pros: "Perfect timing."
Pros: "Online Check-in early"
Cons: "flight takeoff was delayed by an hour. No explanation was given at all"
Pros: "Quick boarding"
Cons: "I didn’t like the fact that there are lots of hidden fees, with the seat, luggage, etc. It is true that the ticket is cheap but paying the hidden fees adds up to the cost."
Cons: "Seating uncomfortable, don’t even serve water, charge money to check in 3 days early and for some strange reason they charged 100€ for standard carry ones manufactured by Samsonite for international travel because it didn’t fit in their standard cubby ... the same carry ones they allowed from London to Stansted became a tad too big on return . They remind me of US traffic police that start giving tickets on tiny issues st the end of the month to make their quota . Also many people in the line had bags exactly our size"
Pros: "Cheap & Cheerful, as usual"
Cons: "Delayed Boarding Delayed Taxi Delayed dis-embarking (no dispatcher) just two bus drivers and no unloading of cases o those with mobility issues"
Pros: "It was a stress free journey. Which I will be doing at least 4 more times this year"
Cons: "I cannot think of anything. Except you can't buy duty free cigarettes on the trip anymore"
Pros: "The plane was so empty, we were allowed to change seats so I sat by a window seat and had the whole row to myself! Also, the plane was warmer than usual, which was kinda nice."
Cons: "It was delayed by 40 minutes."
Pros: "I had a good flight either way. Some turbulence, what you might call 'a controlled crash landing' on the way back to Stansted."
Cons: "The price of the flight. I normally am able to secure a return flight for about 100 euros. This time I got a quote for 300 plus for a return flight. Going through an affiliated site helped me to get a slight reduction on the flight. I find it odd that on a Thursday or a Tuesday the cost can be 12.99 pound either way and yet on a weekend this goes up to a silly amount. The flight is still the same. I am still going to the same place. Having to book three months in advance to avail of a cheaper ticket is of no use to me. The girl checking us in on the outward journey had her back to us the entire time when making an announcement for boarding. She looked like she was sucking sour sweets. No friendliness about her at all. Passengers using overhead spaces different to where they are sitting. That's really irritating."
Pros: "Once I was on the plane I fell asleep so it was a good ride."
Cons: "When we got to the airport no one was willing to help me which ended up costing me an extra £100. I was so upset and no one even showed the slightest care. Im never flying ryanair again."
Cons: "Snobby customer service rep that charged us 15 to print boarding pass when their site was down and would let us view our boarding passes. (When we had previously checked in and seen them online)"
Cons: "Late departure"
Pros: "My children and I got seats together even though I didn't pre book."
Cons: "There would've been a £60 charge to prebook our seats together. I think this is excessive for suck a short flight."
Pros: "No frills, on time, good value for money"
Cons: "The food selection is nothing to rave about."
Pros: "The flight was on time and I got a good seat despite not upgrading."
Cons: "Some passengers were noisy, but luckily I had earplugs."
Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "Delay by two hours"
Pros: "Ryanair professionals are soo better than a few years ago"
Cons: "To pay for water if I feel thirsty during the flight"
Pros: "Price and noticable improvement from ryan air"
Cons: "Real value for money"
Cons: "Gum and candy wrappers stuck in the sides of the seat. Crew spoke poor English. Co-fliers were loud, drunk and unruly."
Pros: "Most of the crew were hard working, pleasant and the flight came in slightly early"
Cons: "There was a cabin services director (or whatever his title was) who clearly liked the sound of his own voice. He kept going on and on about how bad the weather was in London and how sunny it was in Portugal. He mentioned rain and snow in London and suggested that people booked a return flight to Portugal in the twenty-five minutes available to them in London after the plane had landed. One joke about the sun versus the rain might have been acceptable but to raise it again ad again just became irritating and an abuse of the PA system. He shouted Halleluja amongst other things when trying to get money out of people for the Ryanair charity. If he wants to be a professional comedian he should change his profession as he was just annoying people and he stopped the flight from being relaxing,"
Pros: "Cabin crew were brilliant and dealt with all questions with ease. Well trained team and immaculate appearance."
Cons: "Rough landings but not sure if that's due to aircraft model."
Pros: "Ahead of time"
Cons: "Not a lot of point in having priority boarding as everyone on the coach so no priority"
Pros: "They didn't disturb us with as many sales calls down the isle as usual. Smartly dressed crew. Otherwise nothing."
Cons: "Over 4 hour delay Lack of communication Constant queuing No leg room No head rest No entertainment what so ever No food/drink provided FoC No compensation Chair does not recline"
Cons: "Flight delayed by 7 hours"
Pros: "For the price I paid the flight was quick. On time. The staff was really polite and the plane was clean. Definitely would fly with them again on short trips and would recommend them to friends and family."
Cons: "Delayed flight , loads of drunks onboard and very noisy"
Pros: "Crew boarding and overall is good"
Pros: "Simple, comfortable, practical & cheap.Love Ryanair...they make quick weekends away possible...Ryanair have changed. In particular the fact that they allow a second small bag in the cabin make them now a lot better than easyjet (My experience with easyjet recently has been much more pedantic & fussy & awkward). Ryanair gets you there cheaply and with a decent degree of comfort and service."
Pros: "I can't think of any."
Cons: "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"
Pros: "The plane was clean and we boarded on time ..... however we sat on the plane for 2 hours whilst Ryan air staff disembarked a drunk passenger from the plane and found his luggage . It was very obvious whilst waiting at the gate that this man was very very drunk and already being extremely abusive to his partner . Why was he allowed to board the plane causing inconvenience to all the passengers on board and the cabin crew and the following passengers on the next flight ? Yes the team apologised but we weren't provided with any drinks or offered a discount on pod and beverages and practically had to beg to be able to use the toilet during the delay ........ really disappointing"

Cons: "landing was terrible"
Pros: "I cancelled it because you changed the time. I hope it was refunded."
Pros: "Crew were fine, but I'd rather pay a few quid more on the ticket to have a better experience. Something between this and BA would be fine for me."
Cons: "Never a pleasant experience, but mercifully brief."
Pros: "Staff were friendly, no delays and we arrived on time! No complaints"
Pros: "The morning flight was over an hour late with considerable time spent on the apron - the evening flight was equally late - I don't have a problem with planes being late - it happens due to weather etc. BUT. only if I am told what is happening, no information was provided whatsoever, this is not helpful...."
Pros: "Busy departure time, waited 45mins in the aircraft for take off. Had to check in our hand luggages due to busy flight so again waiting at the other end to retrieve our baggage."
Pros: "Barcelo hotel it couldn't have better staff. From reception, waitress/bar, and all the people involve in the service, they are all great professionals and it give you the best services. We will come back asap Xxx"
Pros: "Cheap, efficient, works!"
Cons: "Customer service is just bad. We had to self check in and self drop bag. We intentionally went to a lady to help us she said "this is self check in and you have to do it alone", in the process we had a mistake so she asked "why did you do that, the machine told you not to" - that's exactly how you should NOT treat your customers. We thought our luggage will not arrive - and she was rude and stressing us out. 0/10 for her"
Cons: "The crew had to rush the announcements and introduction because of time restraints, this made it unintelliagable. The safety part was fine"
Pros: "We bought Ryanair because of the great price. However, they do charge extra for everything and fly from an airport that's an hour away from London. If you count all the extra cost Ryanair is far more expensive than any other airline"
Pros: "The whole process went smoothly"
Cons: "Temperature changes very contrasting. Ok in terminal, boiling hot waiting on staiwell, cool walk to plane."
Pros: "It was short so there wasn't much to do, no screens or anything but that was fine. I thought it was great."
Cons: "I think it was a bit overcrowded. There wasn't a lot of space for people and some had to put their bags at the back of the plane."
