We fyied by Arkia on 14.06.2018 (flight 844 from Eilat). It was only 30 minutes delay (that's pretty good for this flight company, I must admit) but this was the least problem.

Couple of months ago I wrote a very critical review about Arkia. I mentioned that most of their flights are late. I know I was among many others that felt like that and the airline declared "a new policy" and I have to admit now - it is much better and the flights are taking off on time.

Apart of 1 hour delay the flight was OK. On the way back the flight was on time. The service was really minimal (we got 2 cookies..), but since it was only 90 minutes flight it was OK.

We all enjoyed the funny flight attendant. Security was good and we felt very safe. Flight was on time. It was a basic, no frills flight within the country.

The flight of 2140 from Eilat delayed to 2300 (due to a problem at the airplane's system from the early evening), and then again to 0030. Also the flight to Eilat had been delayed (1 hour late). Better if you will do the 4 hours drive or fly with other company.
