Not only was the flight late we were suppose to be flying at 10.20 but check in did not open until 9.30! The food was very cold and horrible and staff were not organised! Toilets need to be cleaner more frequent and staff at the airports working for air algerie should learn to smile.

I have flown with this airline several times due to the limited choices in that region. The planes are always dirty, washrooms filthy. I cannot express how poor the travelling conditions are considering the expense. The staff on the plane are lovely and always pleasant and helpful and the flight itself has always been OK but the rest is just...

Service was good and the price was really competitive - everything went well! It was nice to have a direct and fast fly from Alger to Barcelona!

Not to be compared with the Airlines of the Gulf/FE or Europe...but the service is fair, and the ponctuallity on the outbound flight was very good, on the inbound we had more than 1 hour delay (the flight starts in Algiers). Check-in was swift due to the separate Business check-in counter, the lounge in Brussels is common with several other...

Had to fly to Algiers for an overnight business trip from my family holiday. Carriers were limited so was outbound with Air Algerie. The plane was disgusting with old food engraved into seats, carpets and onto the tray table. Despite speaking a decent level of French and repeatedly asking I could not even get milk with my coffee and this...

Positives: 1) Route availability - with frequent flights to most of the primary and secondary destinations in Algeria, you can't go wrong with this airline if your goal is air travel within the country. 2) Value for Money: while it is not the budget airline that Air Tassili is, for example, I still believe that its fares are quite decent...

Flew this return Barcelona-Algiers. The return flight served a nice Francophone breakfast (pain au chocolat!), but the flight over offered nothing. Staff are a bit aloof - and yes, English is limited. Nonetheless, boarding and departures were timely. Old planes, but more legroom (oh, the good old days!).

I don't recommend this airline if you aren't fluent in French or Arabic, as you questions are often disregarded or not answered if you communicate in languages other an French or Arabic.
