No comments, the complete handling and flying was excellent,keep up the good works.
L’équipe a été super serviable avec mon enfant de 11 mois. Un petit cadeau l attendait dans l avion, petits pots etc…
Went in with low expectations based on other reviews/the fact that this is a budget airline, but I was pleasantly surprised! Everything went smoothly, seats were comfortable, food was not bad for airplane food, and of course the price of the flight was fantastic. The only real negatives I can think of are that the plane is a bit on the older side (think 2012-ish era planes, not a huge deal), wifi is a bit expensive, and the movie catalog is mediocre. But that is to be expected on a budget airline (I was honestly surprised they had free movies). I would definitely fly again.
No organization when it came to checking in and boarding. If you have diet restrictions make sure to plan ahead.
Cons: "I would suggest not taking a middle seat if you are looking for comfort. Once people start to sleep you are completely stuck and no more reapect for personal space. Would definitely recommend an aisle or window seat on such a long flight"
Pros: "The ground staff speak very little english,at first they could not find my reservation and took almost 1/2h just to retrieve bookings. Other than that great experiences."
Pros: "Excellent Staff on board, comfortable seats, very good food"
Cons: "Staff at the orly check in desk were as unhelpfull and unfriendly as possible, luckily the airline crew helped us to accommodate my 83 y/o mother to a more adequat seat"
Pros: "A l'heure"
Cons: "Le service bagages aà Orly a oublié de me rendre ma pièce d'identité alors que j'étais pressée de prendre le train... m'a laissé un message, mais pas de nouvelles depuis alors qu'il devait me rappeler ..."
Cons: "The airline canceled the original flight. They then rescheduled the flight to a date and time that I could not accept. I called and notified the travel agency and was first told I'd be refunded but then received another reschedule notice. That flight was also eventually canceled. The airline rescheduled me to another flight ( number 3 at this point) which I clearly told them, over there phone, twice, that I could not accept. I was told they would check with the airline to see if I could have a refund. I later received an email that said I would not get a refund for lack of communicating that I would not accept the rescheduled flight. Horrible horrible horrible experience. Worst travel related experience I've had with an airline and travel agency."
Pros: "Movies and fruit juices"
Cons: "The crew made us feel like we were too much, flight were late, sits uncomfortable and disgusting with chocolate everywhere from the last flight"
Pros: "Excellent Staff, comfortable seats, very good food."
Cons: "Delays of 2 hours at the departure from Port au Prince."
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "Too much noise in the cabin. Ear protection should be recommended by airline."
Pros: "They are very organized small air line . Our flight was on time"
Pros: "***Our luggage did arrive as promised. ***Our flight from Tortola was cancelled, almost ensuring we would miss our connecting flight from St Martin. Thankfully some employees at the airport (Don't know to what airline they belonged, I don't recall seeing a single WinAir employee the entire time) hired a charter TurboProp for all of us (about 15 people). I think the kudos go to the airport rather than WinAir."
Cons: "*** If you are travelling to the BVI's and travel on WinAir, be aware that if your checked luggage weighs the limit that it will most likely come the next day. This happened to my girlfriend and I on separate occasions. While we did both receive our luggage the next day, there was no communication from WinAir. I had to call them repeatedly and stress the urgency with getting the baggage (I was on a chartered boat. I didn't want to hold the boat up for my bag). My theory is that the luggage gets sent on a boat from St Martin to Tortola as heavy bags can't be brought onto the island hopper airplanes they use to shuttle between the islands. *** After waiting at the Tortola Airport in the departures area for about an hour (about 10 minutes before our plane was to take off) I hadn't seen a single WinAir employee. I finally asked an employee of another airline if they could tell us what was going on. About 15 minutes later someone (Airport rep??) came out and told us our flight was cancelled and that they had booked us a charter turboprop to ensure we get there on time. After about 3 minutes we were ushered out to a plane that was loaded with our luggage and ready to go."
Pros: "I love flying Winair between SXM and EUX. The flights are short, safe, and provide a beautiful view of the beautiful islands."
Pros: "There is a magnificent view of the island on the way in. Make sure you have a camera ready!"
Cons: "The flight was delayed 2 hrs. They don't offer connecting the bags with other airlines. I wish it could be a better option"
Cons: "Terrible flight, over an hour late and no one knew how late was the flight...will never fly again with this company, will use Air St Barth..."
Cons: "Flight was delayed up to 45 minutes due to lack of grounds staff to load luggage on plane"
Pros: "Quick, smooth flight (a bit of turbulence). Great pilots and counter personnel were friendly"
Cons: "Left late, no update to passengers to say it was delayed."
Pros: "After booking through kayak, they lost my reservation and I was put on standby. I was treated very rudely at check in and I almost missed the flight."
Plane was extremely small so mind the size of your carry on
Other than lack of snacks, everything else went very well.
They don’t keep you updated on the flight status very well. It was late but nothing said
Cons: "There was no air. I understand when you are on the ground it can be limited but even after getting to altitude there was no air conditioning."
Cons: "The flight was delayed for over three hours, apparently it is a regular occurence."
Pros: "almost nothing"
Cons: "The plane had a problem that forced us to turn around right after take off and as of this writing we still don’t know what’s going on or how long we are stuck here. Planes are old and apparently maintenance could be better."
Cons: "Was a bit difficult understanding the flight attendant, she had a thick Spanish accent"
Pros: "Crew was good. Got there safely!"
Cons: "Maintenance issue caused us to have to get back off the plane, causing delay. Better safe than sorry, though!"
Pros: "The crew member was memorable in a great way. Enjoyed his job and it showed."
Cons: "Arrived admittedly later than i normally would due to ferry issues but it should’ve been plenty of time to board the flight. No one was at the check in area and 20 min later when we located someone from intercaribbean we were told it was now too late but we could get a refund but later refused"
There was nothing to like about this airline and everything needs improvement
Pros: "Nothing the flight was super late and there was no communication as to why or even and announcement to say it was late. I missed my flight to France lost a night in a hotel and missed an important event on my itinerary."
Cons: "My flight"
Cons: "it was too hot at the waiting gate in San Juan and the flight was delayed for about one hour and fifteen minutes. the terminal building smelled of mold."
Cons: "the arrival process in San Juan was horrible. passengers walk in the sun towards immigration and customs is way too long. Standing and waiting in line at immigration without any immigration officer took almost 25 minutes. that was horrible."
Cons: "1 and half late departure, sat at gate with no air in plane, and after landing sat in packed shuttle while crew stood by plane talking"
Cons: "A lot of standing around. Gate crew calls everyone up to depart and we sit standing around for 20 min before they are ready for us to head out to the aircraft. This happened on both legs of the flight. Not very efficient use of time. Return flight was an hour late."
Cons: "Tried to deny my friend from boarding the flight with her legal assistant dog. They even held the plane. Then made up a rule that was illegal."
Pros: "It was easy to check in and everything was on time."
Cons: "We were informed that our flights did not exist upon arriving to the airport on our honeymoon. It is unclear if this was the fault of the booking agent Airfare.com or Air Antilles / Air Guyane / Winair. We had to fly out the next day, giving up a day on our honeymoon and our non refundable hotel reservation. On our return flight, we missed our connection due to an hour delay in which were never given an explanation and then received zero assistance on rebooking. We ended up having to book another flight back to the states. All in all, flying with this airline cost about $2000 and a lost day of our honeymoon. Never, ever fly with them."
