Made 2 internal flights with air algiers and I found them satisfactory despite the awful reviews. Check in ok and security clearance also ok. Staff were happy to see a tourist from australia. Airport waiting pleasant but over crowded. Bus out to remote stand cramped. Flight satisfactory with a small snack served and water. Aircraft was dirty inside but very...

I'm an expat living in Algeria, so I fly often with Air Algerie...there are always delays (for this specific flight it was only 20 minutes, which is not bad comparatively). The food is pretty hit and miss, but I do appreciate that they serve water on even the shortest flights. The planes are usually pretty old and in bad repair...my...

I’ve taken air algerie flights from Alger to Jijel more than 10 times. Never take off on time, sometimes just cancel the flight without any notice / any apology. I’ve never met such a poor performance and unpleasant service. The only reason why i choose this airline is that there is no other option.

We flew Air Algerie from Djanet to Algiers. the flight was meant to be from Djanet-Illizi-Algiers. We asked at the airport whether this was the case and the ground person said 'yes'. Our hosts in Djanet offered us lunch before we flew but we said 'no thanks, we will have something to eat on the plane'. The plane was meant...

My flight AH6181 from Oran to Algiers was simply canceled without informing anyone. The flight just disappeared from the board. When I asked at the desk of Air Algeire, they told me that the flight will be combined with the next one (AH6109), Nobody apologized for this cancellation. I just had to wait additional 2 hours at the airport, where...

The check-in and boarding was very fast. The flight on 28th of December was almost empty, people can even chose, where they want to seat. It seams that the country has a lot of cheap oil and flight tickets are not expensive. We left on time and landed on time. The flight was only 1 hour. The passengers could still...

...well, in this case you can take it for your trips to Alger. And also if you need to travel inside Algeria. Sometimes flights can be significantly delayed, and the Customer Focus is really not their thing. But for a 3 hours flight is is acceptable. The controls and boarding in Alger Airport are really a nightmare, you are controlled...

The Air Algerie A330 Paris-Algiers service still operates in a 3 class configuration. Beware if you book Business class. It is like premium economy in most other flag-carrying European airlines. All in all, the flight wasn't as terrible as some I've taken with Air Algerie this last year. The food is consistently terrible and the bathroom cleanliness is always DISGUSTING!...
