The plane was delayed two hours on our departure flights. First they told us that several oxygen masks had expired. Then, after 1 1/2 hours, they told us that FDA stickers were not affixed to each of the oxygen masks and a proper report wasn’t filed. When we finally boarded, a stewardess who looked no more than 14 years old,...

I was very excited to find a non stop flight out of Melbourne rather than have to go through Atlanta or Charlotte. The flight was approx. $170 each way. The downside is that they only offer service twice a week on Mondays and Fridays which is limiting. I could not take off much time so had to go Friday to...

To have the ability to fly in and out of Vero Beach is not only convenient it makes flying fun again. Our round trip flights went smoothly and they provided excellent service in the air, constantly ensuring we had everything we wanted. My one concern is pricing. Although I can justify spending more for a flight here, they might start...

I have never been so angry with a company. I booked a return one way flight with them through a third party site. MY BF booked directly with them. Our trip was over the July 4th holiday and we booked early and picked to return on an Elite flight because it was non-stop, fit our schedule and flew into HPN,...

Three hour wait in a dark unsecured parking lot in my car waiting to pick up my granddaughters on a delayed flight. The terminal was locked. Flight was due in at 9 pm. Arrived at 12 midnight. No facilities, no bathroom! On the return, we waited in the primitive terminal , for 6 hours. Very few updates. Uncomfortable chairs, just...

I flew round trip between White Plains and Vero Beach. Both times this airline was delayed at least 3 hours. They should not be charging as much as they are for “convenience” because this is an extremely inconvenient way of traveling. There were also no current updates and the plane seating is tight for such an “elite” airline. Would have...

I heard Elite airlines flight from Whiteplains to Vero when some referred it as “the best kept secret”. Well, I wish I never knew about this bc it is a total disaster. 3 hour delays each way for no apparent reason. Ruined my daughters weekend away to visit her grandmother. We paid double for this airfare for the convenience vs...

Last nights flight was three hours late. The planes are small and seats quite uncomfortable. On the plus side the airline did send an email advising of the delay.

So happy an airline flies direct from Myrtle Beach to Albany NY now. This was my first time using Elite airways. Most definitely will book again and again. Staff were friendly and helpful. There was no Kiosk at airport so had to pick up boarding pass at counter. I suggest if you can print out your boarding pass at home....
