Anyone used Ukraine International Airlines?

Recommended Posts

Ukraine Air is just fine - one advantage now is that if you want extra legroom they have an Economy Premium section or you can pay extra for an exit row seat. I use them often when flying between Kiev and neighboring countries. Quite professional compared to other airlines in the region. They are quite picky about baggage weight rules in cabin and checked, so plan accordingly - they will charge you at the gate.

As said, very basic. Get a seat with a working seatbelt, and mind the manure when you step out to go to the toilet. Enjoy.

If there's only 96 squid difference Finn > UIA go Finn, they have new A350 aircraft, way better and safer than an old Boeing bangers.

Check the flight path.  If it crosses the Russian border at any time, don't do it.

Used them last summer. The Kiev-Bangkok leg of the flight now uses brand new modern airplanes with onboard entertainment. Not the biggest legroom but fine. Food was ok. You have to pay for alcohol. The fight path avoids the troubled regions (Crimea, Eastern Ukraine) I had a good flight with them at a very good price. Would recommend.

Shown here to confirm what I wrote. If unlucky, you can get the ancient 767-300. If 'lucky' a fourteen year old 777-200.

Can't laugh, as BA uses a similar product for their London to Bangkok route.

Arriving in one piece is the most important thing. A little bit of discomfort on the way is nothing.
