Our flight was booked the September 27th (that's right : 3 days before Primera Air declared bankruptcy). As most people, once I got the confirmation e-mail, it was all set for me. I did not go back to check "if the airline company I booked with still in business". How many people actually do that ? You know you booked...

They cancelled my flight the day I was supposed to leave and then said they would refund cost of flight and cost of new ticket. The new ticket cost me a fortune to book day of and they NEVER REFUNDED me. Now taking legal action against them and they are in Copenhagen, what to do?

They owe me over $5000 in replacement flights as they cancelled our flight day of and promised that they would reimburse us $1500 per person. We will never be seeing that money back now.

Their transatlantic schedule matched when we could travel. But they are no longer operating. We had a good travel experience but I did lose sleep after booking this flight due to the late delivery of their new aircraft to service their transatlantic routes and also other TripAdvisor reviewers reporting difficulties obtaining refunds for cancelled and delayed flights.

It's too bad Primera Air is gone. Its a direct flight from Washington Dulles Airport, clean, on schedule, and very reasonably priced.

This is the worst airlines I have experienced in my past 10 years of travelling history. They have stolen my money and not refunding for the canceled flight. I could not fly because of the maintenance of their plane. Don’t buy even a short trip ticket from primera air

Expect to be charged for anything you ask for, including soft drinks and water. They have few choices of food on the airplane but if you want warm dinner, you better...

No text message. No phone call. Now there is no information on how to contact them to get the money back. And I...

The plane was functional, no thrills but the stewards and stewardess were really nice and friendly unlike some flights i've been on. I was sad to hear they...
