Worst experience with an airline!

Never flying with airBaltic again! I flew with them from Vienna to Riga, in October. One of the worst travel experiences EVER, would rather take the bus or hitchhike than fly with them again!

They lost my baggage, returned it five days later, visibly damaged, and said they can only reimburse the expenses I made (clothes and personal hygiene items, since I was left in Latvia with zero belongings) up to 40 EUR, and only for personal hygiene items. As for the luggage, they said I should fix it at one of their partners, who just so happen not to have offices in my country.

They are quoting a law from 1999 and hide behind the ”we did everything that was possible” disclaimer in order to avoid responsibility.

Avoid at any cost!

Terrible costumer service, poor exchange policy

2 of us flying from Riga to St. Petersburg for small mistake on Rushian visa they denied our flight, we have paid 725 euros for 2 tickets. After that we try to find the way to exchange the date, unfortunately air baltic has very Very Very poor costumer service they prefer to steal costumer money rip them off !! Without providing any cervice or understanding what r the right or flexibility to change the date or return tick. I have lost with them 1.250 euro in last 2 months because of that!! My question is why would they have this policies when in Europe every company paying fine you can change your dates ?? Why would they steal peoples money? Terrible service!!!

6 Hours of Torture

The company is positioning itself as a ''Low Price'' Airline which is simply inaccurate. Pricing is actually going neck in neck with the pricing offered by Star Alliance, One World or Skyteam.
Unlike the alliance companies, Air Baltic will ''Nickel and Dime'' you for everything.
At the 6 hour intercontinental flight You will pay for Check in, Ticketing, Seat choice, Water, Meal Etc... Other companies in that price range build it all in the price.
They claim to have the most modern fleet. Well, they just forgot to mention that they equipped that modern fleet with seats which are equally comfortable as a pile of Rocks. There is no option of headrest, which would make laying down on the concrete floor for 6+ hours more enjoyable than a flight with Air Baltic.
Very Low Standard.
In no option situation the carrier is flyable but otherwise I'm always looking some other direction for my flying needs. There are plenty of companies that will treat you as they would actually like to see you back on the board. Air Baltic is very good at creating that opposite feeling.

Cheap in every way except price

Air Baltic will try to charge you for every smallest thing on top of mid range ticket price : luggage, check in, seat selection, food, not even a drink of water on the house.

Seat and access to toilet so far still included.

At least to me this leaves the most unpleasant feeling of beeing fleeced non stop.

By the same flight via another company (for instance Brussels Airlines) and all of a sudden you get more for the same price while on the very same flight. Maybe its time they had a rethink on what kind of impression all this leaves. In my case, I have taken flights with a stop-over choosing over direct flight with these guys.
