The crew was extremely pleasant. We received real food with real silverware. The seats were comfortable. I like the little cute bags filled with an eye mask, earplugs, toothbrush and even socks!

Push come to shove I would say the entertainment system needs to be updated since there was no individual tvs.

Punctual, comfortable.

The transfer from international to domestic flights is not well signposted. It's also odd that even though it's the same building, you have to go outside, walk some minutes and then go back inside. At that time of the year it was quite cold outside!

Punctual, comfortable, good service on-board.

Like Astana Airport, the domestic to international transfer at Almaty is also not well signposted and even though it's the same building, requires going outside in the cold and then back inside. Also Almaty Airport is crowded, the toilets are poor and it really needs to be refreshed. Air Astana is a great airline but is really let down by the poor transfers at both Astana and Almaty.

food on each flight was not the one requested/ Called the customer service and specifically told them that my mom (the traveller) is a vegetarian and while her journey to the US, she did not get any food, had to eat only fruits. They suggested the Hindu meal and i happily agreed, but the exact same thing happened. Hindu meal turned out to be non-vegetarian Indian food! Never ever would travel by this airline again... lesson for life! would bad mouth about this airline whenever I can!

As I said, the crew and facility were pretty good. But the bad things really ruined the trip and pissed me off.

First of all, I tried to purchase the on-plane WiFi. That didn't happen, as I was told there was an error in purchasing and I didn't end up getting any connection. Yet when I got off the plane, I realized that I was nevertheless charged for $12. This was definitely annoying, and they still haven't gotten back to me. Secondly, which is very frustrating and infuriating, was the fact that not only was my checked luggage delayed, they did not call me or reply to my emails with any useful information on my luggage's situation. To this date, I have no idea where it is, if it's lost or damaged, or when can they deliver it to me. I had all my clothes, my DSLR camera and gifts in my luggage, and I had to buy a bunch of stuff in the next few days because I didn't have those things. It has been more than a week, and they still haven't gotten back to me on anything. For this reason alone, I think they totally deserve a poor overall rating, especially because I chose them in the first place because I trusted their good ratings.

Nothing. Would never take this airline again. And would tell everyone to never take this airline.

I checked in 10 hours early for my flight and no one told me that I was bumped out of my flight because they were overbooked until one hour before takeoff. Then a gate attendant had the nerve to ask me if I was Vip. When I said no, she said she couldn’t help me and I had to wait for the next flight which was the next day. When I complained to a manager, they let me through security to get on standby for the flight and I was the last one to get on the flight. Their service is awful!!

After we landed, me and my wife had to wait for 2 hours to get our luggage. Once we arrived home and started unpacking, we realized that the one of the suitecases must have been opened, as we found one piece of a pair of shoes that does not belong to us, one of the plastic bags in our suitecase was torn, my wife’s makeup was thrown apart in the suitcase and 3 of our perfume bottles were missing. I’m not sure if they were stolen or were misplaced during the most incompetent and disrespectful suitcase search ever. We were really disappointed and felt violated.

The flight crew was nice.

Neither of my bags arrived with the flight. One bag came a day and a half later. The other bag came three days later. A little bit of inconvenience, especially since they wouldn't deliver my bags. I had to go back to the airport twice to pick up my bags that they lost.
