This was the first time I have flown this airline into Egypt. This flight had no business class to upgrade to and was packed full. The waiting lounge in Alexandrea was dirty and smoky. I even saw birds flying overhead! No duty free available either. All I can say is you get what you pay for on this flight. Defiantly...

A real nightmare experience with this bad company, regardless of the delays of at least 60 minutes of the two flights on the first leg (bucharest-dubai / dubai-colombo), on the return journey has turned into a real nightmare; the first  Flight was delayed by one hour, we landed in Dubai at 9.45 am and the Next flight to Bucharest was...

I expected very bad from the airline but it turned out to be “much fine” considering the value for money. But on my way back from Dubai I experienced the worst kind of attitude fo m their end, almost all passengers luggage were missing when we reached Faisalabad. I can’t imagine how an airline can be so careless as it’s...

I don't understand the business model of this airline. The prices are not really low cost. The airport service is extremely low cost. The cabin was not tidy. The waiting time for boarding and taking off was long . . . I didn't like it.
