One of the worst airlines in the world

Review of Lov about the flight Air Baltic between Zurich and Helsinki on 10/09/2015 in Economy
Note: This review is about an experience that happened more than 3 years ago.

Never again! I left at 9 in the morning on a Zurich - Riga - Helsinki flight with Air Baltic. In Riga, I had the unpleasant surprise of learning in that my flight to Helsinki had simply been canceled and they had "fit me onto" a flight leaving Riga at 7 pm.

That made it impossible for me to take the last train to South Karelia where I was expected at a conference. I've rarely seen anyone more arrogant than the young woman whom I asked if the airline was going to offer me a hotel in Helsinki. She promptly brushed me off.

Furious, I am sitting on a chair in the Riga Airport and writing this short review recommending that all travelers leaving Zurich strenuously avoid this airline. Roughly speaking, this little trip will cost me a lot: plane, useless and non-reimbursed hotel in Lappeenranta and the hotel Helsinki (which is a very expensive city).

I'll add that I assume that the lack of passengers on my flight was because of this likely 7 pm grouping.

I've been traveling all my life, but this was a nightmare. There was nothing wrong with the plane, which was almost new, the normal low-cost comfort or the professionalism of the stewards. It's too bad that the service stopped there. The airline should understand that the passengers, even those who pay a lower price, want to arrive at their business meetings on time.
