There is obviously some thought going into the forms to try to make a good experience, but it sadly falls short at EVERY corner. Everything is difficult, slow, incorrect, stressful, and simply worse than any other app I've ever used. It needs completely redone by a different team.

Poorly done. Bad user experience. I've checked in. It gets lost in what it is doing. Already have boarding passes, it wants me to check in again. Need to update an address, it errors out multiple times. I can only hope the software they use to handle to flights and bookings is better.

Disgusting app. Yesterday I checked in for the flight and somehow got boarding pass on my phone. This morning I tried to see it to make sure about arrival time. App says that it's expired and I nave to update it at Google Play. I did. It did not run at all. I reinstall it, it loose my account, I signed up again and did not see my booking at all. Try to add it no luck. I could manage it as standalone booking, it shows me same page as at website and no way to add boarding pass.
