Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Cons: "Information on when we can check in on upcoming flights. Other airlines we have booked for flights will email us 24 hours prior to departure. Virgin Atlantic did not. I had to call and I was directed to their web site and was able to check in on line. Thanks"
Pros: "Courteous and attentive crew from baggage check in thru baggage claim."
Pros: "Crew was very attentive...food selection was excellent"
Pros: "Nice crew"
Cons: "Comfort. Seats were very uncomfortable with absolutely NO leg room. I fly a lot and this was one of the WORST leg room experiences I had."
Pros: "Virgin Atlantic is the best airline I’ve ever flown on internationally. The service is wonderful, from check in to inflight service. Everything went as planned. The food and drinks on board are free and they are an abundance of snacks, much more than we dreamed. The flight attendants are excellent"
Cons: "No. Keep up the good work!"
Pros: "Craig in first cabin flight crew was amazing. :))))"
Cons: "There was a medical issue and Virgin Atlantic refused to accept the ticket code - for any price - toward a new ticket. I paid for a new ticket and took another airline."
Pros: "It was empty so we were told we could move around in the empty seats"
Cons: "Food was basically carbs, carbs and more carbs (especially if vegetarian). Some diversity, please. Staff forgot requests on a couple of occasions (Economy Delight cabin)."
Pros: "I liked the movies"
Cons: "Crew helping everyone be more courteous to people sleeping. Group of guys being loud in the back of the plane while I was trying to sleep"
Cons: "Nobody was sat in the overwing emergency exit row seats for the whole flight (so nobody had been briefed on how to use them) and the tray tables for these seats were down during the flight effectively blocking the emergency exit in the event of an emergency. Potentially very dangerous"
Cons: "Good overall"
Pros: "Nobody are better hosts than the British. Great service, lovely people."
Cons: "Seats were tight."
Pros: "We liked everything about our Virgin Atlantic flight. They could not have been more helpful from the time we got our Boarding passes in London until we got off the plane in Washington DC."
Cons: "There was nothing to dislike on this part of our trip with Virgin Atlantic."
Pros: "Food and snacks!!!!!"
Pros: "Crew were great"
Cons: "Uncomfortable to sit for eight hours"
Pros: "Everything about my flights on Virgin Atlantic was amazing. The plane was new and comfortable, the seats seemed to recline more than in other airplane I have been. The entertainment was good with a wide selection of movies and TV shows. The crew was incredibly nice and helpful and I had a really pleasant time talking with them. On the airport team side I can also say they were extremely helpful as I missed my flight and they promptly rebooked me on the next one 3h later, free of charge. I think the stress of missing a flight was completely deflected by the help of the Virgin Atlantic crew at the desk so thank you for that!"
Cons: "The only thing I would improve is the main dish in the meal. I loved all the small sides like the Boursin and crackers but I found the main meal a little bland l."
Pros: "Staff was very friendly, the plane was very clean. Loved the entire trip, except for our uncontrollable weather delay."
Pros: "Smoothest long flight I’ve ever had. No hassles checking in, boarding or leaving the aircraft. Bags checked through to final destination without any problem. Good employees at the check-in counter and at the boarding gate. Service was good at LAX."
Cons: "Cabin service somewhat spotty. I was not served breakfast and had to ask for a meal even though all those sitting around me were served. My wife did not get the coffee she requested even though it was promised twice. Trash accumulated at our seat making use of the tray awkward. I tried to pre-pay for extra luggage on-line before the flight but the web site would not allow me to do so. We paid $100 per extra bag at check-in."
Pros: "Quality of service was good in the plane"
Cons: "Not many good recent movies / shows on in flight entertainment. Food was okay. But, the quantity was too little. It took a really long time for a second boarding pass check at London airport. Other airlines don't usually ask for a second check in"
Pros: "So much food!! They kept bringing food out the whole flight..The seats were great. It was a very comfortable flight"
Cons: "no complaints whatsoever!"
Cons: "They switched my gate 5 times and lost my baggage."
Cons: "The crew was rude."
Pros: "Crew was very nice helpful and attentionate Entertainment had plenty of variety maybe not so many new movies but enough to find one you have not seen or classic you could watch again Food was good"
Cons: "We weighted our hand luggage at the counter and then they ask again during boarding little confusing"
Pros: "Seat is very comfortable"
Cons: "Service is super fast"
Pros: "Amazing food and drinks, and to top it off we were served a frozen ice cream treat during our flight."
Pros: "I was selected for additional screening at the gate. I have no problem with this at all. From the start I told them I am traveling with my fiancee. They tried to hold me back in a separate area after the screening and I once again told them my fiancee was waiting for me. One staff memeber walked with me half way back to get her and then disappeared. By the time I found her and came back, the staff memeber was no where to be found. Now we had lost are spot in the line and had to go to the back of the line. We spoke to 3 different staff people about what was going on and everyone said, oh the guy over there will help you. But no one did. The staff had No idea how to run a security check or handle paople. There was No working wifi! There was no tvs in the seats, only the old style in the aisle. The staff told me the plan was going to retire at the end of the month. The food was more for animals then for humans! We got updates by txt 10 mins before the staff updated the gate on our flight out from SFO. I have traveled all over the world with a lot of airlines and Never had such a poor service, but what is it to expect. It was United after all!"
Cons: "Refund of the whole flight."
Pros: "Fast check in Fast security line Upper Class Clubhouse Fast boarding Excellent onboard service Great crew"
Cons: "Old entertainment system Although the seats can be turned into a bed they don't fully recline"
Pros: "I was very impressed by the generosity you show concerning food och drink. the staff was kind and glad."
Cons: "I never understood how to connect the earphones to the screen so I couldn't ser any movie. But - I could have asked the staff of course ..."
Pros: "We paid extra for more legroom and it was totally worth it."
Cons: "The regular seats were so lacking in leg room that I could not cross my legs, reach the floor to get my glasses when I dropped them, or even get my carry-on out. There is no way to get into the "brace for impact position" with arms over your head and head in your lap! This is really unsafe, not to mention really uncomfortable. The flight was long, so comfort would be nice! Our first flight was regular seats and I was pretty miserable and I am a slender woman 5'6". The extra 3" was great, and we had to pay more on the return trip. The FAA should be investigating seat size and safety on planes."
Cons: "Very small leg room"
Pros: "I wish I knew the name of the crew on this flight so that credit is given where it's due. A female steward was incredibly kind to me. She allowed me space to cry in the back of the aircraft, and also gave me her personal tissues. Her care is the only reason I'd give this flight an 'okay.'"
Cons: "Unlike the incredibly kind woman, another woman on the crew was incredibly rude to me and to other passengers on the plane. She was very obviously annoyed with nearly everything on that flight. The restrooms were beyond disgusting. I have never flown on a flight with a restroom that awful; it smelled horrible and was filthy. It was reminiscent of a portable outhouse, no exaggeration. The pillow on my seat had makeup on it."
Pros: "first time I flew VirginAtlantic. Heard so many good things about it. It fact even our Uber driver was praising the airline on our way to the airport. But once onboard: - poor food (I mean 'survival kit' style) - entertainment station was not working - games feel like 20 years old - design (heavy red) now looks dated and suffocating - hostesses are more focused on their hairstyle than their customers"
Cons: "Back to Air France next time!"
Pros: "Very comfortable and spacious seats, good air circulation and friendly crew."
Cons: "Food and wine selections were limited and only mediocre. We flew economy plus."
Pros: "Staff excellent , as always."
Cons: "It was impossible to sleep as the plane seemed extremely cold and was very noisy."
Pros: "Nothing because I was given a middle seat"
Cons: "6'4 and I get a middle seat.."
Pros: "comfort, entertainment, food"
Pros: "Virgin has the nicest staff, good food, and excellent movie options. I had a great time on my flight!"
Pros: "There are lots of relatively new movies to choose from."
Cons: "The complimentary headset breaks easily. Tray table was broken and they can't fix it. Very small bathrooms, knees almost touch the door when sitting down. Food selection for dinner ran out quickly, resulting in only 2 choices and one is hot spicy, so basically only one choice. All beverages are given out in small cups, even water is given out in small cups increments (finish in one gulp), they don't even give out small bottles of water. No complimentary packet (eye shades, socks etc.) , not even a barf bag for collecting trash."
Cons: "Entertainment system was good, and I felt that you appeared to have more leg room in economy than other airlines."
Cons: "cabin was nice but cold"
Pros: "Flight was on the emptier side, so my boyfriend and I each got our own entire rows to lay down and sleep the entire flight. Which was great, since I had just spent 6h vomiting from bali belly on the previous flight. Liked that they accommodated my GF meal."
Pros: "Seat Legroom Comfort Food Service Crew ... amazing!!!"
Cons: "My video monitor didn't work so I couldn't watch movies, asked the crew twice to help and they never did. Then to top off a terrible 10 hour flight with no entertainment, my bag never made it. Worst experience ever"
Pros: "Very friendly and helpful staff! Food was very good too."
Cons: "More leg room always desirable"
Pros: "The comfort of the flight and entertainment."
Cons: "My bag was not put on the correct flight so I had no bag for 3 days, they were slow in getting my bag to Bali from Sydney. It was really unacceptable. I talked to 5 different people to make sure my bag was put on the correct plane, even asked before boarding if it was on and they said yes.The food was horrible, I only ate it because I was starving. Flight was delayed from Sydney to Bali, which caused me to miss my pick up. Not sure if I'll fly with them again."
Pros: "Very good service, plenty of food, food was pretty good, entertainment system was great and the seats in economy with very comfortable."
Cons: "I got in a car accident on the way to the airport for my flight. I went in an ambulance to the ER and had a doctors note that I was safe to fly the next day. When I tried to move my ticket to the next day, with a business class ticket that cost $4000, Turkish airlines wouldn’t do it. They made me pay $3000 to get home . Unbelievable"
Pros: "Everything was more than perfect. Thanks Turkish Airlines."
Cons: "On board internet must be faster."
Pros: "The food was SUPER DELICIOUS! The seats were comfortable, the movie selection is great, and the staff's care and commitment to customer happiness is unmatched!"
Pros: "The service is excellent and they do everything in their control to make a long flight comfortable."
Cons: "It's a long flight - nothing you do about that."
Pros: "Better than average in flight service. Excellent in flight entertainment"
Cons: "Poor customer service. What the Turkish airliines claims to provide for passengers with long stopover (free tour etc.) on its web site did not happen. We got inconsistent and not helpful information from different Turkish representatives. Tight seat configurations. Uncomfortable for a 12+ hour flight."
Pros: "Comfortable flight, friendly flight attendants, food, usb port to charge my phone, and the in-flight entertainment"
Pros: "This was my first flight with Turskis Airlines and my best experience with flying to Europe. The food was excellent; we had two hot delicious meals (best airplane food I ever had). The crew was the best - professional yet friendly. TA airfares are cheaper than other airlines so I could spend one day in Istanbul. That alone is worth it!"
Pros: "Turkish airlines is the worst of the worst."
Pros: "Amazing service and comfortable environment. The really take care of you"
Cons: "Boarding Process could be a little streamlined. Guess we are used to the regulated process"
Cons: "My flight was cancelled two days in a row. When i tried calling the 800 number call center, it didn't work. When i called the Turkey phone number, the communication was bad. After 3 days of being stranded i went to the Turkish Airlines office and they were not able to help me with a new flight or a refund so that i can purchase another ticket home."
Cons: "I have never had a worse experience with booking travel and I vow to avoid Kayak and any related services. This has been truly one of the most terrible travel experiences. The flights were changed (not a big deal) and I was told I was due a refund. After three 1-1.5 hour calls no such refund has come and both agencies says the other is due to provide. I am furious and will never use Kayak or Justfly again."
Pros: "- nice treats around take off (turkish delight and Superman v Batman Chocolate cake) - good in-flight entertainment selection"
Cons: "- service was slow and steward/esses took awhile to respond to service calls; were not that friendly - trash wasn't picked up"
Pros: "Private TVs and lots of movies! :-)"
Cons: "Little leg room and food was not good"
Pros: "Fast, efficient, confortable, nice flight attendants, good food."
Cons: "The plane was very cold"
Cons: "The seats were so small for such a long flight. I realize that's the case with alll planes, but I was suffering. Everything else was great. The people, the entertainment, everything."
Pros: "flights on time.."
Cons: "Our pre-ordered meals were not served"
Pros: "Great crew service and food. Great entertainment features."
Cons: "Wish services in Istanbul airport was better. Had to take a bus to the terminal and transfer directions and gate services was confusing and not very good. But this is not the airlines fault."
Pros: "My wife and I try to travel internationally 2 or 3 times a week to various parts of the world. International airlines tend to be better than the US-based ones, and Turkish Airlines was no exception. We flew from SFO -> IST in March 2016 and they were really milking the fact that they're in the new Batman vs Superman movie with ads on the in-flight magazines, a fancy bat-shaped trifold menu, on-board amenity bag, and even showed trailer after the safety video. At Istanbul, we saw another plane that was completely wrapped with the Batman vs Superman logo. Haha The service was very good, food was good (they even had the chefs greet people as they got on and off the plane), and they had a great selection of movies/entertainment. Despite all the hours I have flown, I'm not good with sleeping in economy seats and while the seats are good, I still can't sleep in these. I'm about 5'-10", average build, and didn't have a problem with legroom or seat width. I like that they also give out this little amenity bag with fluffy slippers, earplugs, lip balm, and I forget what else. It's embroidered with a Batman vs Superman logo on it. Not bad! Earbuds are also free, but I don't know the quality because I used my own. After taking off, they'll serve a meal, pass out drinks (fresh lemonade is only available when originating from Turkey), and then dim the lights and leave you alone. A couple hours before landing, they'll pass out drinks and and another meal. I didn't try, but you can request a cheese sandwich and drinks any time. The only difference with this airline is that everywhere else, the flight attendants will ask people to right up their seats during meals. They don't here and you have to ask the person in front to please sit up so their seat isn't all in your face. Turkey actually has a city called Batman (near the Syrian border), and some ruins called Metropolis (near Izmir). No, Turkish Airlines doesn't actually fly there so their ad copy is a little wrong. We didn't get a chance to visit either of these places, but it would've been cool to check them out."
Cons: "Not anything to do with Turkish Airlines, but being based in Istanbul, the International airport (Ataturk) is still under construction. I don't know which flights used the jetway, but all the flights we took from there (international and domestic) required boarding a bus between the plane and the gate."
Cons: "Connection was too long to Dubai"
Pros: "great movie selection."
Cons: "was asked to show up 1 hour before boarding to a "secure area" with 5 different ID checks... however, once in, no restrooms available and boarding took a long time and was delayed."
Pros: "Everything from service to entertainment to food was first class."
Pros: "It was to hot on the plane , I told them 3 times and still nothing chaged .... I don't think I fill fly with them on the future."
Pros: "Food and entertainment system were amazing. Everything else was at the level of good international airlines. Not at the Singapore Airlines level but far better than US carriers and at the British Airways, Qantas level"
Pros: "For a 13 hr flight on economy class, it was excellent. Cabin crew was very polite. Food was tasty. Boarding was descent. Nice collection of music and movies. Best of all wifi on an overseas flight. Live TV news channels."
Cons: "Seats are kind of small and narrow on economy class but I guess that's in most airlines."
Pros: "Great selection of movies. Really got a kick out of the Batman vs. Superman stuff! :)"
Cons: "I was a bit tight in my seat, and when I went towards the back of the plane, I saw a number of people had a whole row to themselves. It would have been nice if the spacing was better so more of us could be less cramped."
Pros: "A real plug under each seat - great to work on a 14h flight seat pitch better than most airlines No-fuss attitude makes things easier in general"
Cons: "cleanliness is a different standard from, say, Lufthansa but not botheringly so. Turkish telecom wastes your time in trying to get on the Istambul Airport wifi - impossible."
Pros: "The touch screens and little care packages we got once we were on the plane were great. The food was really good, too, but they ran out of one dinner option before it got to half the plane."
Cons: "The entry to the plane in Istanbul was complicated--double checking at the gate for security and then also the boarding entry. The lines were crowded and disorganized and began late. After we were on the runway, we actually turned around and went back to the gate to let one sick passenger off. the flight attendants went up and down the aisles multiple times opening bins and asking people if the luggage was theirs or not before we could leave the gate again. It was really disorganized and bizarre. The flight itself was fine. The flight attendants weren't overly friendly, and they were missing during longer stretches, leaving passengers to find refreshments on their own. Beyond that, things were thankfully uneventful."
Pros: "Great airline but the food is restaurant worthy."
Pros: "In flight entertainment system offered a wide selection of movies and games, as well as flight info. Good frequency of"
Cons: "Not much leg room in the seats. Bad gate setup, multiple security checks before boarding and having to go in a bus to the actual plane. This might be the airports fault more than the flight."
Cons: "No complaints"
Cons: "food was served cold i had flown them before and the food was good , this time is was terrible - basically not edible, so during that very long flight I ate almost nothing and to top it off the food was served cold staff did not speak english well at all"
Pros: "Very friendly crew relatively comfortable airplane some of the best food up in the sky"
Cons: "had to board bus from terminal to airplane. too many checkpoints from security lines to the plane. some of those you can understand in a plane heading to the US. BUT some of them are totally useless and unnecessary. alos putting too many stickers on your passport. Turkish have to keep in mind that if every airport has done the same my passport will be covered up with stickers by now."
Pros: "Entertainment system was great. I asked for an extra legroom seat when checking in (because I'm 6ft+), and this request was entertained for both me and my wife."
Cons: "The 2nd meal didn't have any protein and didn't taste very good. The seats are generally tight for anyone who is taller than 6 ft."
Pros: "Although a fairly long journey, we were all very comfortable and treated very well by the staff."
Pros: "I liked the flight attendants. They were all VERY pleasant and accessible. They were all service oriented and felt that they honestly wanted to ensure that they flight was as comfortable as possible."
Cons: "Total chaos boarding. It was hoarding cats in a pen. NO organization what so ever. The serving of the food was a nightmare.... the food was served in sections. the hot plate first ... 5 minutes later... the hot bread... then yet another 5 minutes later... the drink. No water to be had. Was in the air for a full 5 hours before they brought the cart around for water/refreshments. Horrible."
Pros: "I thought the crew was very good and more helpful and friendly than the average cabin crew."
Pros: "The crew and food were good"
Cons: "Connection in Istanbul is bad. Lines were long and not orderly. Bad experience overall. Flight out of Istanbul was late. The reading light did not work. The crew was very nice and service was good. Again, luggage did not arrive. This time 2 out of 2 pieces. One piece arrived a day later the second took more than 48 h."
Pros: "Lost luggage"
Cons: "They cancelled my seat because of overbooking but they can not explain why? I was able to change my ticket two days later. Unexperienced staff, such a caos at the thy counters."
Pros: "I liked the coach video screens and entertainment system. Screens are large and easy to use, as is the touch screen interface. Lots to choose from. Good system! FAs very friendly and helpful. Quality staff on board my flight."
Cons: "My IST - SFO leg was VERY long. Considering the length of the flight, nowhere near enough water was handed out. About 3 hours into the journey a single pass was made through the cabin offering bottles of water but that was the only time it happened in a 13 hour flight. FAs were happy to give water - in single doses in a cup when asked but service could be improved. Better service would include 3 passes through the cabin at regular intervals offering full bottles of water and not just a cup."
Cons: "Seats 24a/b were next to exit door. Airplane is pumping out cold air literally right next to your feet. Crew was not willing to change temperature. Was not willing to offer comparable seats somewhere else in the plane despite having space. So, we were cold despite layers of blankets throughout the 13 hours of flight."
Pros: "Awesome access to English movies that made a 13 hour flight from Istanbul to SFO bearable. There was more space than most coach seats and their 2-bags free checking policy meant there were fewer lines in the aisles and more room in the overhead compartments. Being used to US airlines, having two meals and a wide range of free beverages (including fresh-squeezed OJ and wine) was a treat."
Cons: "My only complaint would be the lack of any US TV programs among the many video offerings on the longer flight -- there was no video on the 2-hour connecting flight. The food on both flights was just OK, but it had a smattering of lots of East and West so everyone could find something."
Cons: "I traveled on the same airline from SFO to IST 10 days ago and loved it. However, this flight from IST to SFO was terrible. The crew probably was trying to do their best but it didnt work. - I was feeling sick so i pushed the attendant button 4 times to get someone to come by. - When they did come by and I asked for some tea, they got me a lukewarm tea! Seriously. - The toilets - When I used it mid-way, it was terrible. It needed restocking and actual cleaning the pot since the flush couldn't take away all of the solids i guess. Gross."
Cons: "seats too close for comfort...my knees were cramped when the seat in front of me leaned back. i'm only 5'4" so I really felt for the people taller than me...other than that the flight was wonderful..."
Pros: "Boarding in SFO and Crow in general"
Cons: "Boarding in Egypt and ground service and support in Istanbul Online service needs to meet as least the other Airline services."
Pros: "Good selection of food offered."
Cons: "Both meals served were cold/warm. Rush delivery with poor execution on heating the food. Also suggest Turkish get Ginger Ale on board. This helps some travelers keep calm."
Pros: "I found TA to be great in every detail--schedules kept, cabins well-appointed, food exceptional. Will use them every time I can from now on."
Pros: "Friendly staff."
Cons: "Nothing. Flight was amazing"
Cons: "Bigger seats the new ones are way to narrow"
Pros: "The socks offered in business were comfortable and nice looking. The red wine was good."
Cons: "The food was just average and the seat not too comfortable"
Cons: "I paid for the preferred seat .and i found that people beside me didnt pay anything when i asked them ,"
Pros: "The crew tried to be helpful but were equally frustrated with the ground crew."
Cons: "Follow your own policies. Allow people to board (economy plus) with their hand luggage who have followed all the rules and chosen a seat in the front of the plane. My daughter and my KLM approved baggage were taken by the boarding crew while allowing other passengers to go with more than allowed"
Cons: "Seats in economy section are very close together . There is not enough room for knees...especially for such a long trip."
Cons: "Fix the damn KIOSKS at Vienna!"
Pros: "Great plane and staff"
Cons: "The flight was a bit delayed, but the airline handled it incredibly well. I was put up in a great hotel with good free food and caught another flight the next morning."
Cons: "We were allowed to choose our seats from SFO to Amsterdam but not for the return flight. I like to be able to choise my seats when I book the flight. Choosing seats 24 hours before is not convenient when traveling for the return trip."
Pros: "Cabin facilities"
Cons: "They didn’t bring one of my bags"
Pros: "The crew was amazing and the food was great."
Cons: "Something did not go right with our booking so it took some work for the airline to get it figured out for us. Thankfully we had left plenty of time. But that was an unexpected stress."
Pros: "My seat at the window was great and the staff really friendly and courteous!"
Pros: "Crew was nice and efficient"
Cons: "Economy seats don’t recline enough."
Pros: "Quick flight"
Pros: "The flight started with a visit in the recently renovated KLM crown lounge in Amsterdam airport. I liked the various seating options and of course the upstairs bar. The service on board was attentive and efficient, the food options I really liked (especially the Chinese dish) but also the little touches like the nuts & gouda cheese which were served in small porcelain bowls. The seat itself was very comfortable when sitting and the structure gives a lot of privacy. However for couples or friends travelling it's a bit cumbersome to have a conversation even when sitting in seats next to each other. Overall my expectations were fulfilled."
Cons: "This seat is not ideal for sleeping for taller persons (I'm 185cm tall) as the space to put the feet is very narrow and it's uncomfortable when lying on the back (as one cannot put them in the natural resting position). Cabin temperature could have been a bit lower for my taste. Crew needs better training with regards to transfer procedure in Chengdu."
Pros: "Smooth flight."
Cons: "Seat a little cramped."
Pros: "Friendly crew! More legroom, good entertainment and food was great! Smooth landings pretty much on time."
Cons: "Boarding could be better"
Cons: "I’ve traveled a lot internationally and this was the WORST flight I’ve ever had to endure. I felt like I was being tortured and didn’t sleep at all and so slept when getting into Amsterdam rather than being able to explore the city. I was out $200 for the Airbnb (could’ve stayed in the airport cheaper) and $200 for a dinner cruise I slept through. NEVER AGAIN"
Pros: "The food rocks! I know that I will always be eating well with KLM. The staff is always so nice, professional and cordial...I always know I'll be in good hands with the flight. KLM #605 from Amsterdam to SFO---please pass the praise to all of them."
Pros: "Good selection of movies."
Cons: "Very small seats with no leg room and very little room on either side. The food was bad - even when compared to other airplane food. Plane is kept too warm."
Pros: "Nice flight ...was comfortable travel ...good food.Thanks"
Cons: "No such things"
Pros: "Easy flight; loved the crew and their friendly customer service. Great food, kept everyone hydrated and fed."
Cons: "The movie options, as well as music and TV options were limited. There were no electrical outlets."
Pros: "Great on board service from a very professional crew."
Cons: "Can't think of a thing."
Pros: "Food was excellent, frequent and filling"
Cons: "The seat was not comfortable compared to my prior leg of the journey. Unfortunately the bathrooms were not clean, I understand that it's not the sole responsibility of the crew and passengers need to be mindful too."
Pros: "Very friendly crew going out of way to assist in making trip comfortable"
Cons: "Had travelled KLM to Amsterdam on my first flight 27 years ago and the aircrafts are stuck in that age! Lousy seats, poor quality bathrooms, lousy screens, prefer not to fly them"
Cons: "... ear plugs, masks, good food or even picking seats? I remember when it was all complementary and standard on overnight flights. Oh, and the vegetarian breakfast was unfortunately poor as well. I know you can do better, because you used to."
Pros: "Friendly attendants. Decent food, and frequent snacks and beverages."
Cons: "No charging ports for electronic devices."
Pros: "Crew was very nice and helpful, entertainment system worked well and had good choices"
Cons: "Seats were not very comfortable, it was uncomfortably hot and there was not air conditioner vent above like most other airlines"

Cons: "The food was okay, not that great."
Pros: "Loved the service...everything was excellent"

Pros: "leg room economy compared to KLM"
Cons: "full flight, no upgrade possible"
Pros: "captain was great."
Pros: "Having exit aisle made a huge difference in comfort Crew were EXCELLENT"
Cons: "Food was not very good Tasteless and rubbery"
Pros: "KLM food and service are great"
Cons: "Very slow service. I wanted to by several goods from duty free. But crew served only first 20 rows of aircraft."
Pros: "Newer plane. Dimming windows, upgraded bathroom. Flight crew very pleasant."
Cons: "Boarding wasn't announced. Limited in flight movie selection. Food was average. Same dessert for both meals served."
Pros: "They flew full speed to catch up with the delays."
Cons: "Departure was scheduled with one hour delay. When everyone was boarded they mentioned a leaking toilet. It took them 1,5 hours to disable the toilet. In the mean time, no drinks, no snacks, nothing. So we should depart at 18:00 but it became 19:30. Our first drinks and meal was no earlier then 21:00. The crew should have anticipated better that the technical problem would at least take one hour and give everyone a drink at least."
Pros: "Delays and no proper customer service."
Pros: "- entertainment systen was OK (movies), but has no current news - food was good - windows can be darkened progressively"
Cons: "- Schiphol airport (AMS) is small, crowded, noisy; no water fountains; toilets are dirty and insufficient in number; SFO is much better - KLM boarding process was chaotic (not by group or row number), boarding/security personnel (4 old guys) didn't have a clue - 787 is noisy, chairs are uncomfortable (my back still hurts) and very close together, they also recline way too much - food trays not collected promptly - noisy babies on all flights - clearly not enough cabin crew for a full flight - no or wrong info by pilots on timing (crew are always lying anyway) - gate is all around the back at SFO (long taxi to get there) - they inserted people in wheelchairs during deboarding thus holding everybody up."
Pros: "The price was nice."
Cons: "Plane looked unkept on exterior. Crew was nice but lazy."
Cons: "I had booked a paid seat with extra legroom, but at check in the seat was given to another passenger"
Pros: "Flight was overbooked. After paying 1.7k, they put me to another flight which took me 7 hours more to arrive SFO."
Pros: "Left on time, arrived ahead of time. Baggage arrived very promptly. Seats comfortable."
Cons: "Very limited movie choices on inflight entertainment. Seatbelt short, unable to keep secured except sitting straight in seat. No food which is now typical most domestic flights 4 hours or less."
Pros: "Reasonable seat space for economy. Good selection of movies. Food reasonably good. Crew very efficient."
Cons: "Boarding at Amsterdam was disorganized. All economy boarded together. No row number boarding (which was the process for the outbound flight from San Francisco). Lights in economy were not switched off or even dimmed during the flight making it difficult to sleep especially if you had a window seat."
Pros: "Crew was great. Flight was clean."
Cons: "I ordered vegan meals and only one of the meals were vegan. Someone had forgotten to bring the second meal for me on the plane."
Cons: "Only serving beef as meal in economy was not great. A choice would be better."
Pros: "Crew was good, especially from Beijing to Copenhagen"
Pros: "Flight was fine...."
Cons: "....but departure wa delayed over an hour"
Cons: "Please see statement from SFO-> CPH flight."
Pros: "The SAS flight was fine. My dissatisfaction was with the company that booked my ticket which I found through a Kayak search. When booking, there was no information about luggage and I ended up paying for it at the airport. This should clearly be declared in the online booking process."
Pros: "Good selection of movies and music. Food was mediocre."
Cons: "Our seat location was near the toilets in the middle of the plane. Seemed like an unusual high number of passengers constantly using the toilets throughout the flight which created long ques in the isle and very unpleasant smells. Would never select these seats again."
Cons: "I intensely disliked the 3 hour delay in Copenhagen!!! And that SAS offered the passengers in transit a meal voucher of only 50 danish Kronas, which was just enough to buy a tall Starbucks coffee drink but not enough to eat anything at the airport!"
Pros: "Nothing really; this looked like the cheapest transatlantic airline that I have ever taken. Will try to avoid in the future."
Cons: "Limited selection of food, snacks, and drinks Limited selection of movies"
Pros: "Boarding on time"
Cons: "Unfriendly crew & awful food"
Pros: "This airline is punctual and the pilots are good."
Cons: "The service is minimal, you pay for any alcohol and the food is nothing to write home about."
Pros: "The only thing that saved the flight was a good crew and decent food."
Cons: "My husband uses a wheel chair and a delightful attendant wheeled him and about 20 other passengers to a very well equipped handicap area. There we all stayed until finally we demanded that we be taken to our flight which was supposed to leave in about 10 minutes. When we boarded the plane all the other passengers were already there and I was the last one on. All the overhead bins were taken and I had to put my carry-on under the seat which left me with almost no leg room. By the time we arrived in SFO my thighs and back hurt so much that I was worried maybe I would require medical attention. Which fortunately was not the case. It was luck that I had a bag that would actually fit under the seat."
Pros: "Crew, food"
Cons: "Boarding could have been smoother. Entertainment system could have a better selection of movies and tv programs"
Pros: "Everyone I interacted with from SAS was very nice and very polite. Smooth, short flight. Bags came down pretty quickly. The coffee on the plane was better than in my hotel in Edinborough!"
Cons: "I didn't realize that even though I am an international traveler, I had to pay for baggage for this short flight. And since I didn't realize it, I didn't purchase it online, which doubled the price at the airport :-( also, and this is not the fault of the airline, the security line is ridiculously slow because at least 50% of the passengers get shunted to a single line because the screener saw something odd."
Pros: "The crew on-board were polite and did a fairly decent job, with what they had to work with... It's a big long flight of 11+ hours, so tough to deal with so many people. An unexpected surprise was the nice selection of all types of movies to watch and kill time."
Cons: "300+ People on a plane will "radiate" heat, so the temperature inside the cabin after 6 hours was so hot that I was perspiring profusely. I even requested it be adjusted, which it seemed to be for a few minutes but then right back up to 27°C... it is too long of a flight to be that uncomfortable with no adjustments considered. I asked other passengers if they too were "uncomfortable" ALL said yes. This would have solved also in my opinion the screaming small children that were also obviously "irritated" A cooler cabin would have induced a "sleep" environment, none of which I was able to get. Sadly, based on this alone, I will not fly SAS again, unless Business Coach class or 1st Class. I was surprised that an additional Coca-Cola was charged for when some beverages were complimentary... puzzling."
Pros: "- Seats are fairly comfy (as much as one can hope for an economy seat) - Excellent meals. I'm impressed that I'm getting things like ganache and cold-pressed juice in airline snacks!"
Cons: "- Wish the entertainment/movie selection was better, or that the foreign films had subtitles,"
Pros: "Friendly service. No problem with moving to open seats to stretch out."
Cons: "Even though it was an older plane, it was still comfortable."
Pros: "I was treated by the cew very, very badly. Food was terrible."
Pros: "Great flight, friendly crew, good food, entertainment was ok"
Cons: "Cramped with no storage, ticket was stand-by took some time to convert to boarding pass and get seating to enter the plane as one of the last people,"
Pros: "The service is nice, people are friendly, and good environment at airport!"
Cons: "The flight delayed too long...I was waiting total 8hrs in Copenhagen Airport! The first time I took SAS."
Pros: "The airline staff were so positive and friendly. Really made the long trip easier."
Pros: "Very friendly crew Intime departure and arrival"
Cons: "It was extremely cold in the plane (I was in row 32). Many passengers had the blue blanket wrapped around them even over their head"
Pros: "Delayed flight arrived nearly on time."
Cons: "- Boarding process chaotic. Boarding began 20minutes after the scheduled delayed-boarding time without any notice. Gate seating area at CPH was far too small - very stuffy and standing room only. - Aircraft on its last leg. Most of the A340's seats had broken cupholders. Restrooms were out of paper/soap with no attention from crew. Overhead personal lights were either burnt or malfunctioning. - Lunch meal was decent. pre-landing meal is the same as the snack... some sort of dry and non-appealing wrap. - Crew did not perform passenger safety-check before takeoff and landing (seat backs raised up and seat belts fastened)."
Pros: "I am pleased we landed."
Cons: "entertainment system did not function properly. when it did, movie selection was terrible. very mediocre flight experience by mediocre, government funded airline that doesn't really need to compete for business."
Cons: "Mostly junk food"
Pros: "I liked the movie quality and overall order of the stuff and the flight."
Cons: "Since when do I have to pay for wine? :( Also, too few movie choices."
Pros: "Very comfortable 11+ hr flight. I also had an empty seat next to me so maybe that helped? The food was great."
Cons: "I wish the landscape cameras worked the entire time!"
Pros: "Entertainment variety"
Cons: "You had to pay for drinks"
Pros: "Ground crew was very helpful and flight was comfortable."
Cons: "Staff was not properly trained in flight protocols."
Pros: "The pilots were excellent : smooth takeoff and landing. The plane seemed a bit shaky at times in the air; perhaps it was windy, although the skies were clear. Good food; good stewardesses. Entertainment had very good movie choices and games."
Cons: "The side lights never were turned off, so it was hard to go to sleep. On a long overseas flight, there should be some down time. It was dark outside part of the time, but never dark inside the plane. The leg room is also a bit cramped for tall people."
Pros: "Food was ok"
Cons: "Crew members not friendly."
Pros: "The non stop to Copenhagen from San Francisco was excellent. We departed on time, arrived on time.The seats in coach were much more comfortable than other airlines. I will fly SAS again."
Cons: "I think if there were a few choices for the dinner service I would have been happy."
Pros: "SAS agent in Oslo was very nice and quickly rebooked our flight to Bergen when we missed our scheduled one due to luggage delays and confusion at Oslo as to Customs procedure."
Pros: "The cabin is new and the crew is professional and nice"
Cons: "Food needs much improvement, it's the same menu as last year. They charge a fee for booking desired seats where they didn't have last year. Entertainment can have more recent movies."
Pros: "Good entertainment options on board. Helpful crew and good snacks."
Cons: "I didn't find an option to request special meal online. The only way was to call customer care which wasn't available at all times."
Pros: "Great experience overall except for one flight attendant for inbound flight to Copenhagen - his attitude was a bit too casual although he was friendly."
Cons: "wifi - never worked"
Cons: "the seats are very narrow, not comfortable movies are not good - either old or low rated movies"
Pros: "Was told to collect our luggage and buy a new ticket!!!!"
Cons: "Wasn't allowed to board connecting flight"
Pros: "The dinner was great!"
Cons: "The variety of movies was more limited than I expected."
Pros: "Easy upgrade to business"
Cons: "Breakfast. A bit strange to have cold salad with cous cous in the morning but perhaps it was meant as a combo lunch"
Pros: "The flight attendants were friendly, the seats were very comfortable, and the lunch was good. The movie selection was great!"
Cons: "I wished the dinner was a little more substantial. It felt more like a snack than a meal."
Pros: "Leaving on schedule and arriving 20 minutes early. The crew was very helpful to families with children."
Cons: "The air conditioner was blowing cold air on my head through the whole trip. No way to control it. Or stop it."
Pros: "Sear had great leg room."
Cons: "No complaints at all, the pilot did a great job!"
Cons: "Reindeer sandwich? Come on really?"
Pros: "Same as above"
Cons: "It's extremely difficult to catch the connecting flight to San Francisco in 45 minutes"
Pros: "Same as above"
Cons: "Same as above"
Pros: "The crew was nice and helpful. They spoke really good English. The food was good for airplane food and the movie selection was really good."
Cons: "The seats were too close together and were uncomfortable."
