“Malev ground handling staff steal your belongings ”

Written on: 12/10/2011

I flew from Istanbul to Budapest on 7th of October 2011 with Malev. My flight number was MA0201. My plane landed in Ferenc Liszt airport at 18.35 with 1 hour and 30 minutes delay. Normally, I always carry my money with me but that day, I put my money to a small hand bag of mine and I put my hand bag to my luggage. And I had 750 USD in it. After the plane landed, I waited more than usual to get my luggage back. I got my luggage back at around 19.15 or I should say between 19.00 - 19.30. When I… Read Full Review

Written on: 16/05/2011 by thedragon (11 reviews written)

One of the most luxurious seats for economy class I have ever used Food and service very good. The only downside was our hold luggage was left in Amsterdam which was not Malev's fault but I wonder if cabin crew do check that all bags have been loaded as on this particuilar flight a number of bags were left behind and were flown on a later plane then delivered to the appropriate hotels… Read Full Review

Written on: 25/01/2011

Because of my work, I have flew several times with Malev which - comparing to other European airlines (Austrian Airlines, Blue1, Finnair, Lufthansa, SAS, TAP Portugal, WizzAir)- proved to be as good as all the others. Malev's fleet is quite young and planes are generally in a good shape according the technical raports I have seen. All of my Malev filghts were always on time (a couple of times even 15-25min ahead from schedule!). They also have never lost my bag.

Actually, loosing a bag or… Read Full Review

Written on: 20/10/2010

We flew from Gatwick to Varna via Budapest, we were a little apprehensive to fly with Malev as we have never flown with them before. Pleasantly surprise! The plane was on time, the time between interconnecting flights was 45 min, just perfect.
The staff was pleasant, attentive, the seats comfortable (even for a tall person like me 6'2") with enough leg room and most important - the planes were clean.
We have thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience and will definitely fly with Malev again.

Written on: 27/08/2010

I have traveled quite a few times with Malev and have noticed that the level of service is lacking compared to other airlines from the region (for instance CSA, the Czech alternative, which is superb, even in economy). My last trip, literally, ever, on Malev was the absolute worst on any airline ever. This happened during the volcanic eruption which explains why the plane did not leave, but that's not what's wrong with Malev. What's wrong is that they make promises they don't intent to keep and… Read Full Review

Written on: 27/08/2010

The fligth was delyed for 1 hour, so that we were late for the next flight to. We stayed in the hotel and next day flyed home.

The staff was horrible no even a hint of smile. I was flying with my 1 year old baby and when I asked a glass of water for him she looked at me with displeased face. On the other hand they suggested one sandwish for my son.

Anyway I will try not to fly with Malev any more… Read Full Review

Written on: 10/06/2010

I had a scheduled flight with my service dog. I called the airline to confirm I will be traveling with my service dog and request if I need to bring any specific documentation. They told me that it is already indicated on my file and I do not need to bring any specific documentation. Evening of flight, I took a 50 Euro cab to the airport.

I was turned away at check in because they told me my service dog wasn't confirmed and that I needed documentation which I didn't bring as advised by one of… Read Full Review
