Czech Airlines Reviews
One of the oldest airlines in Europe traces its roots back to October 6, 1923 as “Československé státní aerolinie (Czechoslovak State Airlines)”. For the first seven years of the travel company, it only operated domestic flights between Prague and Bratislava. In 1930, they started international routes in Zagreb. However, during the dismemberment of Czechoslovakia in 1939, wherein the country was divided into three, the airline was terminated by then. However, this was suspended in 1948 and the fleet was replaced with Soviet-built airlines.
Now, the airline is known as CSA Czech Airlines and it’s headquartered at Václav Havel Airport Prague operating with a total fleet size of 16 serving over 43 destinations worldwide. CSA became a member of Skyteam in 2000, which actually makes the ownership 56% Czech Aeroholding and 44% Korean Air.

According to several Czech Airlines reviews, the airline is providing not only good quality services but also humane airfare prices. On Skytrax, a total of 108 Czech Airlines reviews proves that the flag carrier of the Czech Republic gathered an overall score of a 6/10 star rating. However, three of the most recent reviews are narrating a different story about them. Here’s the latest review:
“Our flight from Milan to Prague was delayed by half an hour, we didn’t get even get a glass of water, you have to pay for everything. I ordered instant noodles for 3.50EUR, but when they served them to me they told me that the water was not hot enough and so the noodles were brittle and crunchy! In the end, we flew in a tiny propeller plane. The service at the airport was the slowest check-in I have gone through, long waiting for the bus to the aircraft, then long waiting inside the bus in cold weather. All this for 3500 CZK/129 EUR for a one-way flight.”

In the End
In this Czech Airlines review, they are still here today because they have proven a lot in this industry. When they overcame the dismemberment of their country and being the world’s first victim of a triple hijacking in 1950, it didn’t hinder their goal in achieving their aim for efficient quality of service at a reasonable price. Good luck in their future endeavors.
