"the most horrible flight experience"

(United Kingdom)

Trip Verified | Unfortunately this was the most horrible flight experience in years : at the airport the check in started with delay later on they let us wait in a small corridor with seats for 6 people - I immediately with cod some services are reduced but what Croatia Airlines did was simply scandalous - everybody did receive 25 cl of still water - nothing else ; As soon the fasten seat belts sign was switched off, immediately the FA did close the curtain of the pantry in front of the cabin - obviously to eat and drink by themselves - sounds of opening cans with soda's were heard and there was a smell of coffee. The restroom in front op the plane normally for business class passengers remained unavailable during the entire flight - people were rudely sent way to the rear end of the plane. One of the FA very rudely threw some papers she did not need on empty side aside me. The only item this airline did was taking away the money of the business class passengers. FA were very unfriendly as well.

"I never received a refund"

(United Kingdom)

Trip Verified | Croatia Airlines has a codeshare with Turkish Airlines so my ticket from Istanbul to Zagreb was paid to Croatia Airlines. The flight on June 19 2020 was canceled but I never received a refund. I requested the refund several times and I always got a vague answer that the refund is not possible at this time. I wanted to warn other travelers not to purchase tickets with Croatia Airlines at this time when the country is placed on UKs red list because the refund with this company seems impossible. I received refunds related to Covid 19 from British Airways, Pegasus and Turkish Airlines. It seems that only Croatia Airlines is not issuing the ticket refund.

"cash refund would not be made"

(Australia)

Trip Verified | Cancelled flight and only offered voucher or rebooking. I selected voucher, but EU requires cash refund also be offered. On contacting Croatia Airlines they insisted that because a voucher was selected then cash refund would not be made.

"flights were on time, uneventful"

(United States)

Trip Verified | Sarajevo to Amsterdam via Zagreb. Both flights were on time, uneventful, and included a small snack bag. First leg was on a Q400 turboprop, second on an A320. Both planes looked to be in good condition. Zagreb gate staff were strict on cabin luggage size and weight so some bags had to be checked at the gate. The last flight landed on the distant Polderbaan runway in Amsterdam and was a 25 minute taxi to the gate but that's not Croatia Airlines' fault. Overall cheaper than Lufthansa.

"very bad in every respect"

(Italy)

Trip Verified | Rome to Sarajevo via Zagreb. The shame of airlines, boorish staff, rude, rude, endless delays, service on board non-existent, tiny turboprop aircraft where you can't even bring your trolley bag on board. Croatia Airlines, very bad in every respect. I was also denied a glass of carbonated water because you could only give in business. Never again with them, first and last time. La vergogna delle compagnie aeree, personale cafone, maleducato, sgarbato, ritardi infiniti, servizio a bordo inesistente, aerei minuscoli a turbo elica dove non puoi neanche portare il trolley a bordo. Croatia Airlines, pessima sotto ogni punto di vista. Mi è stato negato anche un bicchiere di acqua gassata perché solo in business si poteva dare. Oltre la vergogna, Mai più con loro, prima e ultima volta.

"no-frills airline delivers as planned"

(Japan)

Trip Verified | Zagreb to Dubrovnik. A320 aircraft which is comfy, friendly service, experience at the airport was smooth, website is very easy to use and allows for online check-in and seat selection easily with mobile (iPhone Wallet) Boarding Pass, etc.. Pre-flight email notifications for check-in and flight info were very useful. Service on-board friendly and flight was on-time. I had a technical question on my booking after the flight and was able to find the customer service email address directly on Croatian Airlines website and email them. A customer rep replied in perfect English within a couple of hours with all the details. Overall no-frills airline but delivers as planned, with up-to-date digital platform and the experience was very smooth for a very competitive price.

"Avoid at all costs"

(Canada)

Trip Verified | Split to Munich. Avoid at all costs. My boyfriend and I had ONE checked luggage under his name ( you are allowed one free checked bag per person). We each had a carry on as well that we had no issues with when we travelled to our destination. However, on our way home, my boyfriend was hauled aside and forced to check in his carry on for a whopping $400!! Because they claimed it was “too big” was a normal size) now, they could have checked it in under my name free of charge since I had no checked bag under my name (I’m entitled to one free one) but they refused, and instead scammed my boyfriend for $400. The only reason he paid was because we were close to missing our flight. The representative at the Munich airport (this happened in split) was appalled at what had happened to us and assured us that we were treated wrongly and to issue a complaint against Croatia airlines. They still refuse to refund his money and claim they can’t do anything since he already paid.

"Very friendly service"

(Croatia)

Trip Verified | Rome to Zagreb via Split. Very friendly service, aircraft and seats clean and comfortable. Usually using this airline, business meals for such short flights (45 mins both sectors FCO SPU and SPU ZAG). Friendly atmosphere, quick boarding and flights on time. Generous baggage policy.

"on time and quite comfortable"

(Croatia)

Trip Verified | It was my first time with Croatia Airlines and I was completely satisfied. For a little company everything was proper on time and quite comfortable. I do not expect miracles on a short budget line, but there are unpleasant surprises - this time they were gone.

"very satisfied with the flights"

(Belgium)

Trip Verified | This was my first time that I used Croatia Airlines to fly from Brussels to Zagreb (round trip). I was very satisfied with the flights. The crew were perfect and the planes where clean and the service good. I love to fly with DASH 8 Q400. I recommend Croatia Airliens.
