I had the choice of Air France which I usually fly or El Al. I tried Transavia as it was supposedly a low cost alternative but miles can be credited to AF. The website is only in French with no English - but I managed with my bad French skills. The price was not cheap as I prepaid luggage charges...

I missed check in because their line was too long so I was unable to check my luggage which I'd already pre-paid for so they wouldn't check me in, they cancelled my other flights, were unwilling to help or explain, and I left in tears and had to purchase another ticket with another airline for double the price because it...

(A) Neither Naples staff member (two were on duty that morning) knew how to check our bags through to our final destination back in the U.S. After 15 minutes of fumbling around on their monitors, their solution was to have us (1) go to the luggage carousel in Amsterdam, (2) wait for our luggage to be unloaded, (3) hand carry...

It is OK except for the very narrow space left between the rows of seats. Unfortunately they do not hesitate to give a false information in their offices (in Tel Aviv at least) claiming that if you require assitance in the airport the only place destined for you is row 6 which is especially spacious (which of course it is...

Short flight that was delayed almost an hour and half. Delays happens but they did not manage at all communication. To the point that since the boarding time remained the same as the original time a long queue formed and people stoop up waiting for a long period. Only after 30min they announced the delay! Did not look as they...

A very pleasant flying experience! There was a mistake about hand luggage wheelie suitcases going into the hold on boarding, which I ended up having to retrieve and take in the cabin, and staff were very apologetic about the inconvenience, so the mistake ended up being a nice experience.

Transavia is a good airline. Good planes and service, but we had a problem with on line check in that it forces me to get earlier to the airport. And then the flight was also late, I imagine because of the big amount of people checking in the airport.

The real arrival time was at 20:11 hrs as defined by law. It means when the doors are opened on the plane not when...

Transavia flight was on time, comfortable, and professional. We commend the professionalism in light of the the current climate of contract negotiations, impasse and strikes. We look forward to continued bookings with Transavia in the future. Let me add that the time of the flight was 06:40 and there were actually no other options. A tad early for my liking...
