Blue Air customer review

(Ireland)

DUB-BCM return in June 2012. Flying with Blue Air produced very different experiences going out and coming back. At Dublin they were very inefficient. They had one staff member on check-in for a full 737 so it took ages. When I eventually reached the check-in desk the staff member told me the flight was delayed by half an hour. Fair enough I said and I texted my girlfriend in Romania who was to pick me up from the airport in Bacau. It didn't stop there however. When the staff eventually arrived at the boarding gate half an hour late they informed us that the gate had changed causing yet another delay. When we finally got on the plane it literally sat there for another half an hour and we left Dublin a total of one hour and forty minutes late. Now this would be slightly understandable at a peak time like three in the afternoon. However this was at one in the morning. There were no other flights to cause congestion! The flight itself was fine and smooth but there were so many screaming children that getting any sleep was impossible. Legroom was better than Ryanair but that isn't saying much. Coming back was much better in relation to time. We left Bacau on time and even arrived in Dublin ten minutes early so I was happy about that. Screaming children was a problem again (another night flight) but it was cheap so I guess I can't be too upset. As for food and beverages there were none for free just a ridiculously overpriced menu. Unless it proves unavoidable I probably won't fly Blue Air in the future.

LTN-BBU-LTN. Both flights on old Boeing 737-400. Dirty cabin old tired and dirty blue leather seats air conditioning system did not work and some tray tables were broken. Good seating assignment system that works well and cabin crew on both flights friendly and attentive. We will definitely be flying Wizz Air until Blue Air has replaced their fleet of ageing aircraft.

Bacau-Brussels return. Pleasant flight although shortly delayed apologies given by Cabin crew after boarding. Cabin crew were nice and helpful and seemed interested in our comfort. Plane was rather old but ok. Bacau Airport is very small with only 2 check-in desks. Ticket price was more than fair.

Luton to Bucharest return. On the outbound flight we had a very cramped seat and one of the air stewardesses was quite rude. On the return flight the check-in attendant at Baneasa airport was again very unfriendly. Leg room on the return was much more spacious at the front of the plane. Both flights were on time so no problems there.

Dublin to Bacau return. I had a bit of trouble trying to book tickets using their web-site but the representatives in Dublin office sorted it for me over the phone. The flight attendants were extremely pleasant on both flights toilets clean and stocked. Seats spacious for a budget airline but ask for window or aisle not the middle seat. I would choose Blue Air rather than Ryanair.

An interesting experience. The website booking was fine though it changed suddenly into Romanian halfway through the booking process with no ability to change back to English. The aircraft on Luton to Baneasa routes are not always Blue Air aircraft and planes themselves are ancient. Flights were on time Baneasa airport is a wonderful relic. It works but only just. Any more flights per day and it would be overloaded. While we were away the airline seemed to get sued by someone and local TV suggested that flights might stop. We were pleased to get to the airport to find this was not the case. Planes were comfortable although I'm sure the cabin crew were smoking behind the curtain at the back on one flight.

Blue Air customer review

My first experience of Blue Air was positive: cheap ticket and reliable service nothing fancy absolutely low cost. The second time I booked Stuttgart–Sibiu the flight was cancelled. I was ensured on the phone I could get a refund. However in spite of numerous phone calls and emails and promises made by customer service in Germany and in Romania the fare was never refunded. I will not fly Blue Air again.

Blue Air customer review

(United Kingdom)

Bucharest Baneasa - London Luton. Delays delays and more delays with terrible customer service. Flight time changed the day before from 1545 to 1835. Half the people on the flight including myself were unaware of the change so were at the airport way too early. I asked at the Blue Air desk why the flight was delayed and I was told "Blue Air don't have enough planes". Baneasa airport is worse than a bus terminal nowhere to sit poor air conditioning (in 35C temperatures) and uninterested staff. 1835 came and went but we did eventually board a plane at 1910. The excitement was short lived as we were asked to get off the plane and were bussed back to the cramped terminal. There was no information given out by the Blue Air staff and for long periods they disappeared to avoid angry passengers. People were having to phone the airline to get any information. After being strung along for a while with false promises we were told we would be taking off at 2240. They initially did not want to give out refreshments even when reminded of the EU regulations but after much arguing eventually did. Never again!

We were stranded in Bucharest after the Sky Europe Collapse so we had no choice but to fly with Blue Air to Brussels. Baneasa airport is terrible has to be one of the worst in the world badly organized Staff unfriendly rude and unhelpful throughout. Only 2 checkin counters for about 5 flights leaving around the same time terminal is tiny and was fully packed. To make matters even worse they have a stupid policy where if you have baggage to checkin you need to pay a fee of I think 20 euro per piece but they cannot take the money at the checkin desk you need to shuffle through the fully packed terminal and then go and line up at another desk with even more people and pay for it separately then return to the checkin desk so they can check you have paid. The whole process took around 2 hours and we never moved more than a few metres the whole time. When we were finally bussed to the plane the staff were rude and someone I was travelling with has a fear of flying so they wanted us to be seated together but they would not allow it even though there was a spare seat at the back which I then moved to after the flight took off. One cabin crew member yelled very loudly at me because apparently my bag was too heavy but no one mentioned it in the terminal. Staff at the airport spoke little English. The plane was old and we really questioned the safety of it. Complimentary water served but then cabin crew at the back of the plane for the rest of the flight they even were not present to prepare the cabin for landing. On landing there were many people (Romanians) on mobile phones making phone calls etc none of the staff said anything. Mentioned it to staff after landing and they said they did not see it happen. I hope never to fly with them again and I urge anyone to have a think before choosing blue air or a flight that leaves from Baneasa but the whole thing is an experience in itself.

Luton to Sibiu. The flights were early staff friendly and spoke ok English. The aircraft on this route is an old B737-300 with rather uncomfortable seats. Excellent fares when booked in advance.
