Do not book



I would not recommend anyone booking a flight with this airline...... ever. Two weeks ago, I had a flight leaving from JFK to CDG on Sunday night. When I got to the airport, there was no one from XL airways there. Over 150 passengers were waiting for a flight that never arrived. The worst part is that I tried getting in touch with the airline in New York and in France and there was no answer. The airline did not even have the decency to send me an email or text that there was no flight. The first time I heard from the airline was Tuesday night informing me that my flight will be leaving Thursday afternoon. It was so unprofessional and honestly appalling. The airline did not value any of the people’s time and did not even care to correspond with passengers until two days later. In addition, I lost money on a flight that I had leaving from Paris to another country.

Terrible



If you are tempted to fly with this airline because of the wonderful price....DO NOT DO IT. The flight out to Paris was wonderful. The plane was...

Not recommended for a long-haul flight



Direct flight. We were going to visit our children and grandchildren. There was a very professional flight crew, an OK meal (we were going on a trip and not a gourmet outing).

The lack of legroom and especially the narrowness of the seats were very uncomfortable.

My husband was hospitalized at the Dzaoudzi hospital on arrival (pulmonary embolism), a problem that can occur during long-haul flights.

I appreciated (sarcasm) the video explaining some movements to do during the flight, movements, is it useful to point out, were not possible to do since there was no room.

When I returned with my grandson in July, I chose Air Austral.

Not recommended



Same as the departure flight or maybe worse, since it was a night flight and I can tell you that 8 hours and 30 minutes without sleeping (there was no space) was long . . . very long.
I do not recommend this airline and for my next trip I will make sure to avoid them.

Worst customer service ever



This is one of those you get what you pay for flights. My company booked this - apparently because it was the most affordable flight - without...

An airline to avoid completely



This is a horrible that should be avoided completely. It would be much better to pay a little more than travel with them.

Comfort, quality and service: zero.
Very small seats, straight backs, no curtains next to the toilets, unpleasant staff and an inedible meal if there is a meal. They didn't serve one.

But let's say that that's the price to pay for a low-cost airline. The worst was the quality of their service.

They lost our luggage and made very little effort to find it, they acted like we were liars when we told them that it had important things in it and they owed it to us. They are atrocious. Don't count on them for any goodwill gestures.

I will never, never take this airline again even if they offered, I would refuse.

AVERAGE



No surprises with respect to the trip if not for a huge delay due to the presence of a cyclone in Cuba. We ended up being 5 hours late, but that wasn't the airline's fault.

Really not a very comfortable flight for this distance.

AVERAGE FLIGHT



Average airline, average staff, average comfort (i.e. mediocre), basic meal and limited punctuality . . .
Basically, don't expect much from this airline. It carries you from one place to another and that's all.
