I want to buy a ticket to social Crimea because I -pensionerka. Going with her grandson. He 5 years.
Departure from July Tyumeni8, from Simferopol 31 of July.
I look forward to feedback.

They gave me rotten meat and that for my money, because the power they have on board is paid. After I expressed my dissatisfaction with the attendant outrage replaced him. Very displeased.

Vadim, that gave that and eat, at an altitude of 11 km the choice is severely limited, in addition, you could come out at any time ;-)

As always I promise myself that fly Bars last time, but do not have to choose a particular flight and repeated with precision inside and out. Service no, planes are very old, but the price for the tickets is quite tolerable, given that the time of flight takes less than an hour.

Flight schedule at the request of passengers is not provided. Therefore, I can not independently choose the suitable flight. For this I necessarily have to go to the airport, stand in a queue to the cashier and long and you need to find out from his collaborators.

Prices for flight scheduled unreasonably, because for the same amount I can fly on the same company twice that distance.

A great airline. Regularly flown in the direction of St. Petersburg-Kazan. The flights passed without delay, and the main thing was that there were no force majeure situations. Have no idea, from where on the Internet negative reviews are taken. The take-off passes smoothly, and the landing itself is smooth and soft. Even if the plane has been circling for half an hour in the air in order to obtain permission to land, there is nothing wrong with this. This can happen to any airline. Again, I'm waiting for the next flight, otherwise I will not get to Chelny in another way. I do not like transplants, and there is no desire from Kazan to go. AkBarsAero is an excellent airline with good pilots and flight attendants.

Many times I have used the airline "Ak Bars Aero". The last flight was the best, the crew is great, the flight attendants molodchinka. When loading the aircraft, the pilot told us some information in two languages. Takeoff and landing was soft, the flight attendants were given magazines, drinks, blankets and all yummy. The flight was quiet, the place is very convenient and comfortable. Everything was just super, many thanks to all the crew and the airline "Ak Bars Aero".

Recently I flew the airline "Ak Bars Aero", flight from Bugulma to Moscow. No complaints. I flew on an airplane Bombardier CRJ-200LR, small aircraft but comfortable and very fast. Takeoff and landing are not even felt. The food is good and tasty. I liked the fact that in spite of the small size of the aircraft, there are plenty of legroom. So sit well and comfortably. Satisfied.

Regularly fly flights a / k Ak Bars Aero St. Petersburg-Kazan, St. Petersburg, St. Petersburg, occasionally Msc-Spb. In general, airline like. Over the years 4 that regularly use their services, a serious delay was 1 times, and then on the weather conditions (severe winter 2010;). And once an hour flight was detained for SPIEF. Quality of service is good, the staff helpful and friendly. As for supply- on flights that last just over 2h hours- basically sandwich and coffee-acceptable. Aircraft is very cozy and clean. In general, a good airline. I will often use a / k Ak Bars Aero.
