Whilst not a major airline- Air Astana flights from/to Amsterdam are rarely full or delayed. The staff are friendly and the plan is clean. The inflight entertainment is unfortunately not that good with old style overhead flip down small TV's with maybe one movie. Although the flight time of around 4.5 hours is not to bad.

Plane arrived to Tbilisi on time and departure was also as scheduled. Board was not full and I had 2 seats at my disposal. Plane was my favorite Embraer with...

Good and decent food, attentive personnel, relatively not so crowded plane, a young fleet - medium 10 - 12 years old planes. In flight entertainment is still tributary to the former USSR nostalgic travelers. Safest airline from Kazakhstan.

Everything at the airplane was very good, food, beverages, seats, and tripulation did a very good job. Also they give to each passenger a little bag with basics for personal use as toothpaste , toothbrush, sleep mask, earplugs. The food was better than other known airlines.

The flight was comfortable, complimented with alright food, drinks and surprisingly - wine. The collection of movies and music on board was also rather nice, so I didn't feel bored during that relatively long flight. But overall verdict? I will definitely fly with Air Astana to Hong Kong again.

Iv'e flown with Air Astana many times, both business and economy (10 - 12 flights in past 12 months). The flight service is always good (very good in biz), cabin is spotless, flights are on time, and flight crew is pleasant and friendly. This airline is on par with the best European airlines and better than any US or Canadian...

Air Astana is an interesting beast. Service is OK, even in OK, where you get a hot meal and just-about adequate legroom. The cabin crew are efficient, but not always the most helpful. There is a big difference between business and economy, both in terms of seat size and on-board service. Baggage delivery, particularly outside the big cities, takes forever,...

My wife and I were taking a major trip to several countries over the holiday season of 2017, and we had the need to fly from Astana, Kazakhstan to Kiev, Ukraine. We chose to fly on Air Astana given that the options (there were two with Ukraine International being the other) were limited. We were pleasantly surprised by the outstanding...
