I used Pobeda twice. Once when they just started off in the summer and in November 2018. Since they launched they introduced draconian fees for virtually everything without securing a customer base (boarding pass at Stanstead is £22 if you have not checked in online). Customer service is non existent and when you add all their charges they are no...

We were flying from Larnaca to Riga via Moscow and we had normal hand luggage but Poveda said that we could not take it in. Although we had the luggage when we came to Cyprus with Aeroflot. We said that we couldn’t check it in as we didn’t have visas to Russia as we had airBaltic from Moscow onwards and...

Cheap airlines always have hidden costs but this was the next level! 1) Online check-in on a malfunctioning website was not possible 2) Paying 25 EUR in case you don't have done online check-in 3) Hand luggage, which exceeds 36 x 30 x 27 cm cost additional 50 EUR 4) Changing payment conditions AFTER the booking & flight! Avoid this...

The seat selection on Pobeda flights is a scam. The airline requires you to pay to select a seat. If you fly with company and didn’t pay for the seat, they will purposely seat you far away from each other. It’s also against policy to exchange the seat with someone when on the plane. Will not fly Pobeda again if...

If you can make the trip without carrying ”a typical carry-on bag sized item” inside the cabin you are ok to go. Their rules are atypical for an airline, and the size limit allows only small backbags in the cabin. There is no upgrade available either. If you have e.g. large backbag with expensive camera gear you want to travel...

Better then expected, enough space for legs, flight in time, free water on the board, very nice personal. The only thing I disliked it is allowed very small cabin luggage. For normal cabin luggage (as in other companies You need to buy it)

I booked online the tickets for my flights, in their mobile application. On the way back to Moscow, they made me pay for name change, as they said my surname and name is not in the right order. From Moscow to Makhachkala it was not a problem, here the administrator could not understand this fact. They changed my name how...

This is the worst airline I have ever been. Being an enthusiastic traveller I have tried all low cost options and with that experience I can definitely say this is the worst ever. They have numerous delays for no reason and they dont provide any information,no matter. Very unfortunate that they still operate.
