In addition to its SkyTeam membership, the company has codeshare agreements set up with a large number of other carriers, just some of which include Aeromexico, Finnair, Vietnam Airlines and Delta Air Lines.

Czech Airlines passengers can also check in at the airline's self-service kiosks. To use the kiosk, passengers need to identify themselves using either a machine-readable passport, a credit or debit card or by typing in their booking number. These kiosks are currently only available in Prague. Airport check in can also be done in-person at a counter.

2 hours late. Sitting on plane that wasn't moving. And no food included in ticket price.
four comfortable flights largely on time
late flight on way back, easy check in though
Excellent what else can I say
I had the most beautiful air hostess you could possibly imagine. The service was great for the price!
I wasn't able to check in online and the check-in queue at Prague airport was dreadful: only 2 desks manned for 6 very full flights.
Non of the flights was on time. No migration cards were offered to fill in on the plane. Flight to London was so late, that instead of relatively cheap train ticket I have to take a taxi cause trains are not going that late.
