Has anyone flown Alpi Eagles?

If you have, I would like to know about your experience with this airline. How was your flight? Is it reliable? Was it on time? What was your luggage experience?

I posted another message with questions about a week ago but didn't get any information. I'm a little concerned since out of all the people who post here, hardly anyone had anything to share about this airline.

I would love to hear about your experience if you have used Alpi Eagles.

Thanks.

Will top this for you. Unfortunately, a lot of the "recommendations" on the board aren't necessarily from people who have actually done the same thing.

Hi
We WERE going to fly Alpi Eagles last summer from Venice to Naples. Our plans changed and didn't need the flight.

From what I heard at that time was, if the plane was not at a break even point, (enough passengers) they wouldn't fly! But like I said, that's what I heard. Volare will fly no matter how many seats are sold. Good Luck!

Lewis, I read that here before but it is the only reasonably priced airine flying from Naples to Nice. We recently decided to fly rather than drive. I may email and ask them what their policy is concerning this.

Thanks for the info.

I flew Alpi Eagles very spur-of-the-moment from Venice-Marco Polo to Rome last year. The flight left at around 6:30pm or so I believe. It was a small plane with 1 seat and then the aisle followed by 2 seats. I sat way in the back on the left side. Not only was the flight most inexpensive (with the booking fee at American Express since I was in a hurry at 10 Euro), I paid a total of 45 Euro. We were given beverage service (coffee/tea/juice/soft drinks). Flew over Lago Trasimeno and down into Rome-Fiumicino. No problems with luggage either: you could see your luggage being stored since it was a commuter flight mainly with businessmen returning to Rome. I was very pleased with the flight and would recommend them to anyone. My experience was only excellent. At 45 Euro one-way, how could I not go to Rome by air? The price simply amazed me and I saved a lot of time flying instead of taking the train.

Hi, My family (a group of 9) flew this airline from Venice to Sicily. We had a great experience and as you stated it was VERY economical. We speak very little Italian, but were able to understand most of what was said to us on the plane. The language barrier was the only downside, but hardly a problem for others on this intra Italy flight. Goof Luck. Anne

We did fly on AlpiEagles and everything was fine. The flight was a little late taking off from Naples and it was a bit hot ( they gave us bottles of water) but we didn't mind because they didn't charge us for over weight luggage. They didn't even weigh the luggage so I wished I bought a few more things in Sorrento! I would use them again.

Have a great trip!

We flew Apli Eagles from Nice to Naples. The plane wasn't full, and they actually let us use one of the empty seats for a painting we'd bought at an outdoor market in Nice! The flight itself was very uneventful.

I also used them to fly from Naples to Palermo last year. Good, uneventful flight with snacks/drinks (but it's only a very short flight anyway). Would certainly use them again. Only difficulty was a delay of 24 hours due to a strike at Naples airport but that was affecting all flights and was nothing to do with the airline and they were helpful in offering a selection of times of flying the next day. Luckily, I was staying with a friend so it wasn't too inconvenient!

Probably not the same, but I have flown Air Alps, the Austrian airline and it was fine. Small planes but no issue. I found them to be very professional and well, well trained. They really followed the rules. It appeared there workforce was long term employees. But again, it may not be the same.

This could be what Intrepid1 gave you but I didn't check the other thread.

Here's the website:

www.alpieagles.com/it/

You can select the English version.
