    Hola! Aprovecho que hablan de WOW para contar mi experiencia con la aerolinea.
    Viajamos WAS (Washington DC) – AMS (Amsterdam) ida y vuelta con escala en KEF (Reijavik).
    La ida: Rompieron las ruedas de una valija (nueva).
    A la vuelta:
    1) Pagamos para elegir asientos y eso no fue respetado en los boarding pass.
    2) Mientras hacíamos el primer tramo de nuestro regreso (AMS-KEF) la aerolinea adelanta la partida del segundo tramo (KEF – WAS).
    3) En KEF, Como no nos avisan nada, nosotros no estábamos ni enterados del cambio. Llegamos tarde a la puerta de embarque del segundo tramo (KEF – WAS) (y aunque el avión no había sido desconectado de la manga aún) no nos dejan abordar. No entendíamos qué pasaba.
    4) Mesa de informes no responde nada. No da ningún tipo de información, ni siquiera que el vuelo había sido reprogramado. No brinda soluciones de ningún tipo.

    Al final tuvimos que comprar otros pasajes en otra aerolinea para no quedar varados. Cuando llegamos a Washington, recibimos un correo electrónico de WOW avisando que el vuelo KEF-WAS sería reprogramado.

    Por supuesto hicimos los reclamos a la empresa por todos estos problemas. Después de 3 meses de dilatar las respuestas, finalmente dicen que no tienen solución para ofrecernos y que si queremos, que apelemos a las autoridades.

    Si alguno tiene algún consejo de cómo proceder, bienvenido. Mientras tanto, me vale contar la experiencia para que otros viajeros consideren mejor a esta aerolinea.

      Terrible, Sebastián, ¿cómo compraste el pasaje, directo con ellos o a través de una agencia?

      • Sebastian Bari dice:

        El pasaje lo compré directo con WOW. Y eso ya merece una mención extra.
        Después de cargar mis datos y los de la tarjeta en la web de WOW, yo creí que ya había comprado el pasaje. Pero resulta que, según ellos, yo había reservado el pasaje y ellos iban a mantener esa reserva hasta que se acreditara el pago, máximo una hora.
        Como la acreditación demora un par de días (cosas de bancos) WOW amenazaba con cancelar la reserva. Consulté al banco y me dijeron: «A vos ya te debitamos el dinero y a WOW ya le avisamos que van a recibirlo en 48 hs. Es lo normal. Deberían saberlo.» Tuve que llamar varias veces a WOW para que me prometieran que iban a mantener la reserva por 48 hs hasta que finalmente se acreditó el pago. Claro que esto también generan inconvenientes operativos porque no podía seguir comprando otros pasajes si no estaba seguro de que iba a poder volar como había planificado.
        También aprendí que tienen que pasar 73 minutos de espera antes de que te atienda una persona por la línea telefónica. Casualmente siempre fue el mismo tiempo de demora en todos los llamados que hice. Pero asumo que soy re paranoico y que ellos me atendieron tan pronto como pudieron.
