Pros: Boarding process could use some work but overall it was good
Pros: Airline was fantastic, most of the crew were super attentive.
Cons: Once in Rome there was very little guidance from ground staff
Pros: Flight was smooth, I told the Captain that. Staff was helpful. They attended our needs, like that they served us food twice and snacks and drinks. Liked that they had blankets & pillow for us. The 12 hour flight was great and did not seem like it was 12 hrs. I will definitely fight this airline again
Cons: Staff at airport (Rome-FCO) was not too friendly but this had nothing to do w/ the flight. Flight was awesome. I would just recommend having a few more move selections but overall, I give this particular flight, from Millan to San Francisco an A+! ONE NOTE: Check in your luggage online OR else they will charge you double at Airport.
Pros: The flight was well organized and comfortable and in spite of 1 hour delay waiting for takeoff due to the weather we landed only few minutes late. Checking in was easy and fast, registrar Elena was outstanding. I will recommend this airline to my friends
Cons: Air Italy charges to choose your seat assignment ahead of time, which is disappointing. I luckily for an aisle seat, but the seats are very cramped. Typical of these flights, but still. You can't use your tray table if the person in front leans the chair back.
Pros: The seats are not comfortable. the crew was fine.
Cons: Other then putting in more leg room, to make it more comfortable, everything else was pretty standard.
Pros: Very narrow seat, leg room limited however passengers still can recline their seats. So if your front passenger recline their seats, basically you got locked into your seat and hard to get in and out.
Pros: Crew was super responsive and helpful
Pros: Crew was great and super responsive
Pros: hard seats.went too f
Cons: hard seats.went too far back so that the person in front of you if they went back all the way no room to eat or use laptop
Cons: Flight departure delayed; no effective queuing for business class; no vodka on plane; food mediocre for business class
2.5hrs delay due to technical problem, connection flight did not wait
Pros: The food was good for airplane food. They had a menu and choice between chicken, mashed potatoes, carrots or pasta with mushrooms and cheese together with a warm bread and delicious chocolate mousse for dessert. Breakfast was either scrambled eggs or pancakes.
Cons: Flight delayed 2.5 hrs due to electrical problem on the Air Italy A330. Missed connection flight in MXP to NAP. Even though there was a Rome flight leaving at the same time that waited, ours to NAP did not wait. Rsukts: 6 hes additional time at mxp airport

Cons: Had to bus to plane and walk up steps into plane ... but may be more issue with airport.
Pros: Flight attendants were curt, and rude.

Cons: Food could have been better.
While we checked our baby stroller at the boarding gate, we did not get the stroller back at the gate. Had to carry the children one of whom had gotten air sick out to pick up the stroller at the baggage claim.
Cons: better selection of movies
Pros: Very friendly and professional crew. Punctual flight. Easy online check in.
Cons: Long boarding. The seat recliner reclines too far so there is very little space for the passenger behind. So the seat space was excruciatingly small. I ordered a vegan meal online 3 days before my flight (as they suggested) but I never received the confirmation and the correct meas was not provided. The movie choices were limited and outdated.
Pros: Crew was great and food was good. Also, the movie selection was a good mix
Cons: Little crowded on the way home

When I when to check in at the airport thei charged me 50 Euros instead of 20 euros by online. I would have liked to do checkin online
Pros: After 2hrs into the flight, we turned back to JFK because a drunk person was out of control! They should not have turned back!!!! The trip took 14 hours

Pros: I liked the direct flight from Los Angles to Milan. Convenient not to have a layover. Staff was courteous. Planes are clean. Fair price reasonable if you only have carryon.
Cons: Airline website not user friendly. After having paid for seats in advance still was not able to get boarding pass online. Also had a bicycle to check in. Was not able to pay for it in advance. Had to pay extra at the airport with hassle of having to go back and forth ticket counters .
Cons: People not answering phones when you call the company. I was not able to check in or buy my suitcase online. Couldn’t do anything with the app. Very frustrating.
Pros: Not much was good
Cons: Horrible check in experience. Obviously not a company used to valuing hospitality.
Pros: the crew were helpful.
Cons: All the washrooms were not available. would have preferred a bigger breakfast after flying overnight. difficult to prepay for the luggage. Long delay in boarding our return from Milan to Toronto for unexplained reasons by the ground crew.
Pros: Plane was half empty, so I could lay down over 4 seats.

Cons: Be on time.
Pros: The seat was ok.
Cons: Be on time.
Pros: The crew was nice and friendly.
Cons: Plane left with a two-hour delay. Boarding process was unorganized, very poorly handled and seemed to be managed by high-schoolers. Upon boarding one was struck by a strong smell of urine. Entertainment options were limited and old, especially when compared with other airlines.

Pros: amazing customer service, and incredible food/beverage options

Our flight to Milan T
Pros: The crew were very friendly and professional
Pros: The first meal service was good with two appealing choices. The flight was on time.
Cons: What could have been better: 1) Boarding process; although the gate agents announced particular rows, they did not enforce 2) Snack was not very appealing 3) We would have liked wine after the meal, but attendants did not offer and when requested, they refused. 4) after snack served, over head l

Based in Milan, Air Italy operates a number of domestic flights across Italy as well as internationally. Flights reach as far as North America and Africa, with a centralized focus on Southern Europe. Commencing scheduled flights in 2018, the airline developed quickly to begin offering transatlantic routes. It also runs a second hub in Olbia, which is a focus city and attracts a large number of vacation travelers throughout the year.
A mix of both Boeing and Airbus aircraft are used by Air Italy, with a preference for medium range jets, such as the Boeing 737 and Airbus A330. Business Class is offered on some of the more modern models in the fleet, with Italian designer slippers and pajamas provided. Another feature of the Business section is personalized hospitality, with flight attendants greeting customers by name. Business passengers also receive 60MB of complimentary Wi-Fi data.
Previously known as Meridiana, it is a subsidiary of the AQA Holding group and is partly owned by the global giant Qatar Airways. The airlines work closely together to share route connections and facilities. Codeshare agreements are also in place with British Airways, S7 Airlines, Bulgaria Air and Air Moldova. Prorate agreements are maintained with carriers such as Alaska Airlines and Aegean Airlines to ensure smooth passenger transport.
The aircraft and branding of the carrier feature maroon and light green colors, which are similar to that of Qatar Airways. The stylized "Y" of the Air Italy logo is emblazoned on the tail of the planes and resembles a flying bird.
