We booked with Air Astana is it was the only real option and also read some good stories. However the 757 they fly from Paris to Astana is very poor. Very old, seats are slouching and most of all, no personal entertainment sets! There is still overhead monitors. Wauw! I didn't know they still existed. Crew was average. Didn't try...

I was very surprised that Air Astana would match other airlines in comfort, food and other extras. I have travelled on many airlines and found this Airline a top pick. If you are heading to Kazakhstan , this this is the airline to fly on.

A red-eye flight departing right away midnight local time, but somehow "dinner" was served in the wee hours after take-off (of course you can skip meal, but they wouldn't turn off the cabin lights after collecting all the trays). Reckon breakfast before landing at 8am local destination time makes a lot more sense and passenger-friendly. 4 business-class passengers were aboard...

This is my 1st time flying on air Astana when going a trip to Kyrgyzstan in July. The plane was relatively small but I impressed with the cleanliness maintained and quite comfy on the seating place with spacious leg room. Overall the service are quite good and the meal are acceptable. Good travel kits are provided.

I came late for check-in that day, my flight should be at 7 pm and I came on that counter check-in was almost 5.45 o clock the counter c/ I was closed already...

Been using this airline for about 6 months, Good service, good food and helpful flight attendants. Good leg room on most flights. Could do with USB charging points on the older planes as media can be accessed through mobile devices but these do not last a whole 6 hour flight. The newer refitted aircraft with in-flight screens are very good

My first time with Air Astana. Flew from Kuala Lumpur to Istanbul, with a transit at Almaty. Plane is relatively small for both sectors. KL to Almaty was via Airbus 321 and Almaty to Istanbul was Boeing 757. Though it's a small plane, leg room was relatively big compared to other airlines, however, the aisle is much narrower than other...
