Airline reviews

Cons: "Same as previous"

Pros: "The crew was nice."
Cons: "The infotainment system could have been better. My system was not working for the first 3 hours and the sound went out after 2 hours of use. Also my blanket was not clean."

Pros: "The crew is amazing, special food needs is covered and delicious, great service after all."

Cons: "Just deaiappointed"

Cons: "Crew was not very friendly, the lack of customer service is evident."

Cons: "(1) The captain collected headsets 30 minutes before landing, causing us to miss the last 15 minutes of a movie. Why? (2) Very long cues for toilet use. (3) The baggage took more than half hour to arrive. (4) The chair in front of me reclined very far (more than those on its sides), making it very hard to eat, get up, or read. Need better maintenance."

Pros: "The people who work for Lufthansa are the nicest i’ve met, on par with Turkish airlines. The times for boarding and departure were respected, the flight crew was extra nice, even accommodating requests that gave them extra-work. Economy passengers were treated like first class in terms of service and solicitude of the crew. Headphones, blankets, pillows were offered free of charge, so we’re the food and drinks, and there was a good selection of movies and music. On a 770$ ticket, mind you! The crew will come by repeatedly to check if passengers desired some more wine or coffee, offered water and juices on a tray several times outside the regular service times, and cared for the families with children. Thumbs up!"
Cons: "The warm food was a bit unappetizing, the potatoes for instance were black, but there is nothing that the crew could do better than offer to replace it. Such graceful approach to a little inconvenience!"

Cons: "The service"

Pros: "Safe trip. Announcer had a radio voice."
Cons: "Food was horrible. Service was scarce. Bathrooms were not the cleanest. Snacks were scarce and not appropriate. The tv screens were not too user friendly and programs would skip while showings."

Cons: "Miss the flight due to too short of transfer time. As a professional you guys should know better to have such tight transfer time. I want credit for my major inconvenience"

Cons: "Their computer terminals were down on the boarding area. Actually about 5 Boarding areas were down no one was available to give direction or answer questions until you got To the front of the line and many had to be sent then to a different line. Bad enough the terminals were down but not even close to German efficiency in handling the problem. Also several of the stewards were rather surly and short"

Pros: "Smooth flight. Pilots at Lufthansa are the best regarding landing and taking off. I like also a lot that lufthansa flies mostly with Boeing airplanes."

Pros: "It is so nice to flight on board a plane were the staff knows what to do."

Cons: "First, Lufthansa lost our baggage from Hamburg to Los Angeles. Then, the delivery company (Direct Courier Services) Lufthansa uses was completely inept and unprofessional - every single one of their employees is a complete moron. We didn't end up getting our baggage for two and half days so we were wearing the same clothes that we left Germany with. Then, after being told by Lufthansa customer service to submit receipts for clothes we had to buy, never got reimbursed or even the courtesy of a reply. After flying Lufthansa for over a decade, will never use this airline again. Epic fail."

Pros: "Exelent crew"
Cons: "Distance too far between gates for transfer"

Pros: "As usual, good customer service."
Cons: "I fail to see why Lufthansa is deliberately destroying their competitive advantage."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "The flight attendant did not bring the wheel chair and take me to the bus where I waited too long and when I arrived to customs no wheel chair was there and I asked every officer there how to get the wheel chair no one helped after long time one officer called and the chair arrived and he transferred me to a cart the driver was very bad he did not help in seating me and I sit on the back with my carry on when he drives like crazy I fell on the floor screeming he stopped and place me in the front and he asked if I need a doctor I told him no I just need to catch my flight although I was hurt badly with a very big bruise and when I reach the gate the plane was gone and I have to wait for another flight to take me to San Francisco and from there to Los Angeles and I singed a paper that I don't want a doctor"

Pros: "On time-well organized!"

Pros: "Amazing"
Cons: "I had picked my own isle seat at purchase of ticket. Some how i ended up sitting middle row."

Pros: "Everything!"
Cons: "Being sick on the way back home from my Vacation!"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Plane delayed. Then when on board, pilot apologized due to the very warm cabin as "the auxilariary power unit isn't working." Then long delay because the baggage ground crew messed up and again according to the pilot "we apologize for the ground crew's failure to do their job properly and some baggage wasn't loaded properly." Once we landed we had like 20 minutes to go through security AGAIN and nearly missed the final flight to our Seattle destination. No mention of local time upon landing, no one at gate to direct lots of people rushing for connections."

Pros: "Service was execellent"
Cons: "The entertainment system and charging didn't work but they did give me a voucher for 100 Euros to spend."

Pros: "THE VIDEO OF THE FLIGHT THE WHOLE TIME. THE SMOOTH SMOOTH FLIGHT. THE FOOD AND WINE. THE SERVICE."

Pros: "Very nice flight, very little if no turbulence food was decent just luggage took forever"
Cons: "Luggage wait was an hr other then that the A380 which is my favorite plane was amazing"

Pros: "The downstairs lavatories are genius!"
Cons: "Nothing!"

Cons: "Charges for suitcase 40 euros this rediculas"

Cons: "I could not get any information in Moscow until arriving at the airport."

Cons: "1 hour between flights meant a very hectic transfer."

Cons: "Boarding was poor - we were put on standby, the gate changed, we were bussed out to the tarmac, and the plane left very late."

Pros: "free wine."
Cons: "Planes are old and cramped. Our plane gave us the "personal entertainment option" which meant you had to use your own device since they are too cheap to upgrade the planes. However, this international flight only had american plugs so anyone without an adapter was SOL. I tried to watch the large screen at the front of my section but they showed the movie Lion that is in Hindi and therefore had subtitles and I couldn't read the words from 12 rows back. The boarded process is like a cattle call. DO NOT FLY UNITED!!! I thought I was flying Lufthansa but it was a bait and switch situation."

Pros: "The flight Crew was very attentive and went the extra mile to keep us happy during our flight, the head stewardess I give her a 10+. we will fly with Lufthansa again. great movies!"
Cons: "The flight from Roma to Frankfurt was late and we had to run what seemed like two miles to be able to catch our connecting flight to Los Angeles."

Pros: "Service was very good."
Cons: "Pasta was so so."

Cons: "flight was late; food was not so great, lunch and dinner were the same; :-("

Cons: "At time confusion amongst the crew- received wilted salad- seemed the last rows had to take what was left over"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "I was unable to get all of my seats at once. This would later cause me a lot of time and patience"

Cons: "old model aircraft"

Pros: "Same as above"
Cons: "Same as above"

Cons: "Departure gate was not shown on the ticket. By the time we found a LH rep we were told that the flight was operated by United. After we found a United rep and started walking towards the gate we came across the passport control area that had a huge crowd waiting in line. I saw that we literally had 15 min left, while the long line would take us 20-25 min to get through. We had to jump through the lines and cut in front of people explaining everybody our predicament and making people upset. Got back stressed and tired"

Pros: "NOT MUCH. LEFT, GOT THERE ON TIME. SMOOTH FLIGHT."
Cons: "SEATED, TREATED LIKE CATTLE. VERY UNCOMFORTABLE DUE TO NARROW SEATS. GAVE US TWO MIDDLE SEATS IN FOUR-SEAT CENTER. WANTED $35/EA TO PRESELECT SEATS, ONE-WAY. NEVER AGAIN IF I CAN HELP IT....."

Pros: "Service,entertainment, and food. Easy check in"
Cons: "Cabin was too warm. No air vents in new aircraft so difficult to sleep."

Pros: "short hop--good"

Pros: "Great"

Pros: "all"
Cons: "overall service"

Cons: "We were delayed by complicated connection from Vienna train station to Vienna airport, by the time we arrived, we missed our flight. We called your customer service, and a recording stated that we would get a reply within 48 hrs. We contacted website customer service and it stated that we would get a reply within 48 hrs. We needed immediate assistance from a HUMAN BEING to change our reservation, that was impossible. We were forced to purchase new tickets, the cost was $2,500, we had to stay overnight in a nearby hotel, the cost was $220. We are returning one day later than planned all because we could not reach you."

Pros: "Everything worked like an expensive Swiss watch! Employees were polite, friendly, and very helpful! I will fly with Lufthansa again and again!!!"

Pros: "Being seated in econmony plus. Everything behind the scenes that i didn't see that made this flight safe. Very thankful. Didn't matter that not enough coffee was onboard for breakfast."
Cons: "The selection and range of music could be improved, or may be it is just my taste within the genres on offer."

Pros: "The crew was incredibly pleasant and helpful"
Cons: "The entertainment system didn't work for many passengers, and had to be continually reset, and sometimes still did not work. When it did aorkX it was extremely slow and unresponsive. Also, the USB and electrical outlets near the seats did not work and power devices"

Pros: "Wrote my thoughts in the wrong section. See Milan to Frankfurt"

Cons: "I am writing to you because of the poor service that I experienced with your Operations Manager in Vienna, Paola Contestabile. I travel internationally four to five times a year for the past decade and I have never had such awful service as for my Lufthansa Flight 2329 on Jun 14th under confirmation #62RZK3. I was on my return flight to the US with the exact same carry on baggage that I had left the US with a week earlier- a roller carry on and a backpack for my laptop. This is my standard everywhere in the world that I travel and have never had an issue. I bought a painting on my trip and checked it in. With regards to my carry on, Ms. Contestabile was insistent that I could only have one piece for carry on. I told her to get the baggage rules and I would read them to her. I am a trained lawyer and value the meaning of words and rules. I explained that I am allowed one carry on and a personal item. She argued that my backback is not a personal item and that only a "laptop" is a personal item. I again explained that my personal item was my laptop bag, the same way a purse is a personal item for a lady. She finally relented and allowed me to pass through security and passport check. I assumed that this was the end of her confusion. Little did I expect that while sitting by the gate waiting to board the plane, Ms. Contestabile would emerge again and declare in front of all of the passengers that I would not be allowed to board the flight if I did not check my backpack. I told her this is unacceptable, since she had already cleared me. She said she had changed her mind. I found this response to be ridiculous. When I asked to speak with her manager, she refused to allow it, stating "I am the manager today." Ms. Contestabile even went to the pilot of the plane and convinced him that I was a "safety concern" because I wasn't following her ridiculous interpretation of the rules. This is a pure abuse of power and a threat to true safety when a ground crew member can make such a false and baseless accusation. Luckily, a woman passenger overhearing Ms. Contestabile told me that she could not believe the way she was treating me and offered to carry my bag for me. I am requesting a formal investigation into her actions and appropriate disciplinary procedures to ensure Ms. Contestabile is not allowed to threaten another passenger again."

Pros: "The cleanest of the airport and the airplane"
Cons: "The 15 hours layover"

Pros: "Entertainment players"
Cons: "Organization when boarding (a line vs. a mob of people from all different boarding groups) not organized at all. Ended up leaving about 45 minutes late."

Pros: "Crew"
Cons: "My wife and I were separated by six rows. Unacceptable!"

Cons: "The Austrian airlines website is absolutely the worst and least user friendly that I've seen for an airline. I tried paying for my bags and it rejected half of the itinerary's bookings for no reason. It took a ton of clicks to get stuff done and I kept getting errors. Very limited movie selection."

Cons: "Terrible food and service"

Pros: "The crews are very polite."

Pros: "Arrival to the terminal was a breeze, and security was fast and efficient. What more can a traveler ask for?"
Cons: "The executive lounge was a bit crowded. But if that is my only complaint, that’s not too bad. A well designed airport!"

Cons: "Menu was poor"

Pros: "I never try Austrian airlines because this trip was my first trip with them and I'll say that it's one of the best trips I ever had the airport at Vienna it's very small and easy to go anywhere you want and it's super clean and the stuff at the airport are very helpful and they all speak English and I was able to get a hotel room with walking destination from the airport and it was a very good experience overall I'll definitely recommend to anyone and I'll definitely keep them on my top list"

Pros: "Very good drink service (one cold and one hot drink)"

Cons: "Paid 1,000$ and we got a standby ticket. How is this possible? Will not book through Kayak again."

Pros: "Special kosher meal was good!!!"
Cons: "Would like access to coffee more often. :) Internet/wireless did not work for entire flight. Aisles super small. Overall - great experience!"

Pros: "Crew was nice enough, entertainment was ok. Food was ok. The plane was old and a little dirty."
Cons: "Boarding was incredibly chaotic, seats were old and uncomfortable."

Pros: "Polite crew. The food was much better that on any airline these days. The boarding process was organized fine."
Cons: "As on any airline these days the leg space in economy class is very limited. The movie selection was OK but not great."

Pros: "Staff was friendly, flight was on time"
Cons: "No snacks on flight of 12h 20min?! I was offered the appetizer (pretzel or biscuit - both of 14gr of product inside). This is unacceptable - overseas flights have to have some snacks No eye mask or ear plugs, nor socks for economy class Outdated entertainment"

Cons: "We landed so close to our boarding time, by the time i got through everything, i was notified that i had to go to gate 11 for a special security check...it was stressful since my flight was boarding...i found it really frustrating . Ultimately the plane waited and it worked out, but the process was long and VERY stressful."

Cons: "Flyght was terible"

Cons: "Sweet or saulty 'Snack' is a joke"

Cons: "Changing planes on Vienna was not easy so 1-hour layover was barely enough (required running)"

Pros: "all was good"

Pros: "Everything was excellent"

Cons: "Hot meal was awful"

Pros: "I would suggest to make up some how for my lost as I had other problems derived from missing my United Airlines but so far every body has been very understanding. For example selling me a new ticket at a special price or with some benefit - I WILL NEED TO FLY TO VIENNA AND KIEV AGAIN WITHIN 6 MONTHS - otherwise; I doubt I would ever buy a Austrian plane ticket again. I AM FLYING ON POLISH AIRLINES RIGHT NOW OCT 25TH."
Cons: "When I try to make the change of itinerary on Austrian Airlines on the selling web page, they told me to contact the Austrian Airlines, so I did. The Austrian Airlines lady who told me that I would just lose my tickets and that I could not even pay a penalty to avoid such thing, was very VERY RUDE!! As the Austrian Airlines did not offer me an option but losing my plane ticket,"

Pros: "The rep was able to get me on Air France instead."
Cons: "This flight switch added a layover and 8 hrs to my journey home. Not to mention I was in a middle seat on the. 11 hr leg when I had originally booked a window seat."

Pros: "Speaking of friendly sky. Great!"

Pros: "Left on time - arrived early"
Cons: "Cake was the same thing they served from Kosice to Vienna . There must be something better than that. It was a tad dry."

Pros: "Seats were comfortable Bathrooms clean"
Cons: "Crew wasn't very helpful and didn't ensure my stroller was delivered at the aircraft exit Had trouble closing my suitcase into the overhead compartment and called for assistance, to which i got reprimanded for opening it in the first place Requested coffee because i couldn't get it myself, being with a sleeping toddler, to which i got a horrible answer: the flight attendant told me i had to get it myself in the kitchenette"

Cons: "Prior to take-off, we spent 2 hours after boarding on an incredibly hot plane with no working air conditioning"

Cons: "LOST BAGGAGE !!!!!!!"

Pros: "The plane was clean, fresh looking. Flight attendants were helpful and courteous."
Cons: "Check in at Vienna airport was awful! Chaotic, no help! Kiosk software was horrible. Touch screens didn't work. No back button so, if you made a mistake you had to start from the beginning. Passport reader was not working properly. Machines were slow and delayed in responding. Not enough staff available for assistance. Arrival at LAX was even worse. Plane had to taxi for 30 minutes all about the airport runways. Finally got to a gate -almost on the beach! Then had to bus everyone to main terminal. Slow in getting bags to the passenger pickup. It took us 2 hours post touchdown to get out of the airport! Almost missed the airport shuttle,"

Pros: "see above"
Cons: "see above"

Pros: "Our seats 35 A & C were comfortable as they were to the back of the plane where it narrows to two seats per side row. Seemed like extra leg room. Crew was very friendly and helpful. Flight was smooth and uneventful. Good movie choices. Bathroom was clean and nearby. Plane seemed newer Boeing model. The City Airport Transport (CAT) train from the Vienna airport to city center was fantastic. We were able to check our luggage and get boarding passes where we boarded the CAT at the metro station and did not have to wait in line at the airport...wonderful system!"
Cons: "At the gate there was a line formed for a second passport check but it was not clear to passengers that they needed to go through this line. A significant number of us had SSSS on our boarding passes which required us to go through a second, more thorough, TSA security procedure. We had to remove shoes, take electronics including phones from cases, have purse contents gone through by personnel, be screened for residue, etc. Due to this process and the fact that we were not advised to stand in the line, a number of passengers went through the second security check at the last minute which caused our takeoff to be delayed. The pilot made up the time during the flight. I ordered low sodium meal which ended up to be the same food at both meals which was a disappointment - pasta with tomato, eggplant sauce."

Pros: "Good service, nice staff (better than US carriers easily)"
Cons: "2.5 hours to receive baggage - this might be on LAX"

Pros: "Good food, lots of movies, flight attendants friendly"
Cons: "We paid to pre-book our seats and when we got on the plane they had been given away. We heard several different reasons, none of which made is feel better about the two middle seats we were told we had no choice but to take, while people who had NOT prepaid sat in our aisle seat. It was offensive to be forced to pay to select our seats in advance on a major international airline in the first place, and then to not have those honored just made it worse."

Pros: "Boarding was a breeze, although the flight was not full. Food was good, but as I dozed off during courses, they decided I was finished and took all my food and didn't offer anything when I awoke shortly after. (this will go in the 'didn't like' section as well. Bed was comfortable and comfy blanket and pillow"
Cons: "Crew was not friendly at all. Amenities kit was burlap sac with nothing worth keeping or using -- even the eye covers. Business class bathrooms had nothing to offer in the areas of hand/face creams. All there was were hand wipes and air freshener. (OMG! SERIOUSLY!?); a big difference from their partners (i.e. Swiss and Lufthansa). Crew was not present -- not only were they very unfriendly they were no where to be found. TV/video didn't work properly -- kept fast forwarding or changing channels on its own. The crew of course, was not concerned."

Pros: "When you travel with an infant it's already a difficult trip but it's really fraustrating when you find out that they didn't assign you to the seats with the baby bassanet, and when I went to the counter to fix the problem instead they change our window seats to an isle seats without even asking or notifying us with the changes, and they when I asked how come you don't automatically assign infant reservations to infant seats their excuse was what if there were more infants than available infant seats and they already gave out those seats with extended leg space to others who already had paid for it, and surprisingly there were multiple of infants on board none of them in those seats but rather the other passengers who paid for it, so basically they got paid extra and you will only suffer for almost 10 hrs so they can make extra profit. NEVER AGAIN AUSTRIAN AIRLINES!!!"
Cons: "Entertainment on board was useful"

Pros: "It was fast and comfortable"
Cons: "---"

Cons: "The delay in take-off"

Pros: "Really liked the chocolatey-wafer treats and the smooth boarding process."
Cons: "The entertainment wasn't great compared to most international flights."

Pros: "Never again with KAYAK. Sorry."

Pros: "All"
Cons: "All"

Pros: "Everything"

Cons: "Staff was not particularly warm or attentive. Was never offered more to drink, and after asking for more wine was ignored."

Pros: "Customer care was super supportive"
Cons: "Inflight sandwiches"

Cons: "Everything was OK"

Cons: "I was seated next to the restroom, which is not a pleasant experience for an international flight."

Cons: "Fix the damn KIOSKS at Vienna!"

Pros: "Crew great, boarding at Nice very organised, boarding in Amsterdam not so organised!"
Cons: "A queuing system would be better-it was a bit disorganised at Amsterdam!"

Pros: "Seat was comfy and spacious for economy class"
Cons: "Vegetarian meal was okay but could be more enjoyable if served with bread at start of meal."

Cons: "Entertainment"

Cons: "There was no wifi on flight"

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: "Amazing crew"

Pros: "Economy comfort was very nice, food decent, plenty of toilets to avoid overcrowding, and good entertainment selection."

Pros: "Friendly crew! More legroom, good entertainment and food was great! Smooth landings pretty much on time."
Cons: "Boarding could be better"

Pros: "Overall booking and airport was ok. Food was also actually quite good."
Cons: "A comfort of the seats... well its economy class in the end. Entertainment was just dreadful - small screen with visible pixels - I was unable to watch any movie."

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: "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."

Cons: "Can't think of a thing."

Pros: "The entertainment options were good."

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: "Norhing"
Cons: "They have mabaged to lost my luggage"

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"

Pros: "Friendly attendants. Decent food, and frequent snacks and beverages."
Cons: "No charging ports for electronic devices."

Pros: "We are guessing they either overbooked or they didn't have sufficient passengers on a Tuesday afternoon who's final stop was Glasgow. They rebooked him for 1200 the next day. DFW to MN, St Paul to Schipole, Amsterdam to final destination, Glasgow. So he ends up having to pay for another Lyft back to our apartment in Dallas, then another additional one for the 12 noon flight the next morning. If he didn't have family living in Dallas, he would've incurred a hotel fee too."
Cons: "He was bumped to the next day due to his flight being cancelled. Then re-booked the next day, with an additional layover. Then due to a 32 minute layover that left 3 minutes sooner..."

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"

Pros: "Friendly staff, good service and on time departure/arrival."

Pros: ".Very much on time with pleasant service."
Cons: "Can nit find much fault fir a short run!"

Cons: "Delayed!"

Pros: "Flight crew; legroom even in cheap seats."
Cons: "Exceptionally unhelpful customer service when asking about extra kilos/bags. Just quoted the online info back at us. We simply wanted to know how much would be charged if the bag was 1-2kgs overweight. We could not get a straight answer, just quoted the unclear company policy. Extremely frustrating and annoying. KLM offer a superior flight experience - it is a shame their terrestrial customer servic does not match it!"

Pros: "Very friendly crew"

Pros: "Airlines issue"
Cons: "Profiling certain customers"

Pros: "The food was excelent"
Cons: "I have to pay to pay a little more confort"

Pros: "The included snacks and the seats."
Cons: "Nothing."

Pros: "Loved the service...everything was excellent"
Cons: "The bus class seat was a bit narrow at the feet"

Pros: "Arriving more or less on time"
Cons: "Crew is awful. Disrespectful desinterested in customers find themselves very important. No service mentality whatsoever. No respectful airline would hire such arrogant self centered personalities in a service role"

Pros: "Same as above"

Pros: "I have no complaints about the air crew. They where pleasant and attentive. Plenty of free entertainment. The food was good."
Cons: "my only complaint is the USB ports didn't work on any of the chairs that me and my family where assigned to."

Pros: "Very friendly and the food and drinks never stopped and no additional charges, a very nice experience over the bargain airlines, free in-flight movies, and entertainment, no cost."
Cons: "No complaints."

Pros: "Crew was excellent"
Cons: "Economy was very tight! Seats were uncomfortable"

Pros: "A nice short flight"
Cons: "We had booked business on our flight to Milan, and it was extremely disappointing that on this sector they put us on the last seat in the back of the plane. There were plent of seats on this flight that had extended legroom. A bit of a mystery, why Westjet elected to put usin the last seats on the plane?"

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: "Captain was updating us with the delay status."
Cons: "You have to be gold to get the priority boarding. In other countries I can do it with my silver status."

Pros: "In general, it was ok"
Cons: "Yet again it was flight delay from KLM side."

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."

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: "Timely, clean, friendly crew. Love this airline."
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Great crew, they were very nice. Food was good enough, could use more variety but i never had good food on any flight."

Cons: "Good was not good really bad it is"

Cons: "New terms about hand luggage is worser then in RyanAir"

Pros: "Na"
Cons: "Na"

Pros: "Crew only"
Cons: "I fly four times with Aeroflot, and they have always a lot of problems. Airplane never fly on time. They lost my luggage and a they have a lot of things they need work on them."

Pros: "Seat was not too comfortable...."

Pros: "Timely"
Cons: "Better boarding experience with consistency in allowance for appropriate carry on luggage."

Cons: "The line to check in at the airport (in both directions) moved at a snails pace. We stood there for literally hours."

Pros: "The crew was amazing The seats are worst"

Pros: "The check in was very friendly even in the face of some problems for the computer to process my green card , we got good seats with more leg room , we very much appreciated!"
Cons: "Our Luggage did not arrive in NY , we had only 1/2 hour to change flight in Moscow, we had to run to make the connection , and I was worried that our luggage wont make it, sadly I was right !"

Pros: "Crew kept the bathrooms tidy"
Cons: "USB port (for charging) was not working. The connector inside was destroyed. Light was not working. Crew member refused to serve the coffee saying that the plane was going thru turbulence which was not quite true. There was no vegetarian option as far as meals were concerned. He did not even offer fruits as substitute. One of the crew member did not seem friendly at all. rather grumpy at times. Most of them do not speak decent English so it is hard to communicate with them anyways."

Pros: "The crew was amazing and tentative to all of my needs and if there was any question or concern they were quick to respond to it. They also fed us multiple times and offered snacks and beverages throughout the entire flight."

Cons: "Crews the best"

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "None"

Cons: "Food"

Cons: "Everything was well)"

Cons: "They denied me boarding because I did not have a printed ticket!!! THIS WAS NOT DISCLOSED WHEN I BOOKED IT NOR IN THE CHECK IN EMAIL."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Food was tasteless. Crew- had "you owe me faces" the whole flight. Outdated equipment, TV and so on."

Pros: "Food service"
Cons: "Service"

Cons: "Nothing bad. All is good."

Pros: "Attentive staff and service. I will always use Aeroflot when traveling to Russia."

Pros: "Service is good."
Cons: "Food is ok, but inferior to Turkish or Uzbek airlines."

Cons: "Unable to selesct seating."

Pros: "comfortable seat and leg space"
Cons: "I had 2 bug bites on my thighs... I hope the airline will clean and spray the upholstery."

Pros: "Smooth landing. Professional pilots. Great crew. Good food"
Cons: "Bad seats. No room. No comfort."

Pros: "Professional service"

Pros: "All right"
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "Took so much time to issue boarding card."

Pros: "Flight attendants are good."
Cons: "I was asked by KLM to ask Aeroflot if my baggages were on the plane to LA at Moscow, because I had 10 hours. However, Aeroflot security didn't listen to me and kept saying I'm okay( I guess she wanted to say I was a right gate) and didn't let me talk to groundhostes, and kept screeming to others to show her their boading pass. I could get to talk groundhostes right when I get in the flight, not sure my baggage were with me. My suitcase was damagged at both flights on the way and back. And had to wait for two hours to receive the form, and to claim it, you have to submit so many documents and takes tim e. I am waiting for it."

Pros: "This was a cheap flight from LAX to ZRH with a layover in Moscow and that's about as good as it gets."
Cons: "The check in personnel was not that helpful and were very slow to check in everyone to their corresponding flights, and since kiosks were not available for aeroflot the experience was unavoidable. The plane economy class is really as uncomfortable as it gets for a transatlantic flight. There were no beer options for the flight (nor vodka which is weird), and flight attendants weren't that happy to talk to you in English. 5 hours wait at Moscow are the worst, if you're thinking on saving some dollars on a transatlantic flight this is not worth it."

Pros: "Cabincrew was very polite Flights were on time"

Pros: "Nothing!"
Cons: "No respect from crew, no beverages, everything no good!"

Pros: "I like the service, flight attendants were very nice, food was great, the seats were comfortable and had plenty of leg room"

Pros: "Crew members were very nice and friendly. Our first meal was excellent but our second meal was ok."
Cons: "Boarding time was delayed and took a long time to board."

Pros: "some of the food"
Cons: "Worst flying experience. Very over obese guy and his wife (at least 6'3" and 400 ibs) were seated next to me. I never had that ever happen to me and during the flight from LA to Moscow, the guy's body for 12 hrs was all over me and sweaty. Most disgusting. It was an invasion of my private space and taking the right to my seat because his body was on my seat. No human being should suffer through that experience I ordered special meal and it was all plain and vegitarian even though I am not vegiterian"

Pros: "Almost all the flight attendants were exceptionally nice and anxious to please. It reminded me what US airlines used to be like many years ago. The food was a little different, but very good. There was a great selection of movies and the plane was very clean."
Cons: "One flight attendant named Olga was surly and rude. It was a stark contrast to all the others."

Pros: "friendliness, food, in-flight entertainment"

Pros: "Everything was great!"
Cons: "Everything perfect."

Pros: "On time"
Cons: "The food"

Pros: "New Dreamliner planes are great for jet leg recovery."
Cons: "After unbelievably long check-in, they were not able accommodate our family . Me and my wife had to take one child each separated by 8 rows. The flight attendants unfriendly attitude was not even a surprise anymore after spending 4 days in Moscow."

Pros: "The movie options were good"
Cons: "I had to sit separately from my husband on a 12-hour flight and on the previous flight from St.P to Moscow. I never had this kind of problem with any other company but Aeroflot! We never paid for seats either but we never had to. We just wanted to sit together and we bought our tickets almost a year in advance. Also food was disgusting. The worst food I had on the plane."

Pros: "price. service."

Pros: "Same as before, very happy and pleased and enjoyment exceeded expectations. I highly recommended Aeroflot to all of my followers online!!!"

Pros: "Great service Nice staff Mostly comfortable Cheap!"
Cons: "The TVs didn't work properly and lag a lot. Food was average but offered several meals which was cool"

Cons: "Some of the crew were not working for you - they seem to act like you are inconvening their lives."

Cons: "More training in English would make communication better."

Pros: "Entertainment, courtesy of the crew"
Cons: "The white bread was cold and kind of old."

Pros: "Free movies"
Cons: "Free wifi. Better movie selection"

Cons: "A better breakfast..."

Pros: "The connection was way too tight."
Cons: "Hel-LAX flight was ok. LAX and connecting flight were bad, slow and delayed frequently."

Pros: "Loved Finnair. Hated Justfly.com. If you own this company, you need to end up like Blockbuster or Circuit City."
Cons: "If I would have purchased my tickets from Finnair.com, I would have had a much better experience. Kayak found me a good price but purchasing the tickets through Justfly.com was the biggest mistake of my life. The trip ended up costing me $285 more than what I budgeted and there was zero customer ser"

Pros: "I will recommend to my friends and families."

Pros: "it was on time"
Cons: "it was a poor food choice again."

Pros: "clean planes, timely service, nice flight attendants"
Cons: "no power outlets narrow selection of juices/water on the plane"

Cons: "I hurt my knee. The legroom is too small."

Pros: "I really enjoyed the whole flight - Finnair is definitely one of the best airlines."
Cons: "I wish there was a bigger choice of classical music in the entertainment program."

Pros: "The meal that they served was great."
Cons: "The leg room for someone that is 6ft 4in is not the best."

Cons: "Almost impossible connection with too many custom checks Lost luggage"

Pros: "Great service, staff and punctuality"
Cons: "The food was soggy and overheated"

Pros: "The stewardess was really sweet and funny! She was very accomodating even though there was high stress because the flight was late."
Cons: "The flight was 30 minutes late, which made it really hard on a few passengers, myself not included, who had transfers."

Pros: "Like that you served Finnish food! many choices of films to watch was great too!"

Cons: "the flight got delayed for an hour and I missed a connecting flight. Was re-routed through Moscow and was at my destination point 11 hours later."

Pros: "I made it home safe."
Cons: "Poor boarding, delay caused us to miss connecting flight, new flight plan did not have enough time to pass though customers, bag not delivered to final destination. In office now trying to locate."

Cons: "not enough foam in padding, cheap seat bottoms"

Pros: "Friendly service, lots of movies, Marimekko design."
Cons: "Seats too close together front to back. If the person in front of you lies down the back of their seat is in your face."

Pros: "the flight wasn't full and I had the front row"
Cons: "i had the front row on an airplane but there was no first class:("

Cons: "I never get that flight."

Pros: "The flight came on time and arrived in Chicago on time. The crew were friendly."
Cons: "The sound was out on my chair, so there was no sound to the movies. The food was really kind of junky and I decided against eating most of it so I wouldn't make myself sick. The meals could really do with more produce and a few more vegan options."

Pros: "Spacious, on time and smooth"
Cons: "There were no vegetarian options and I was unsure where to select a meal preference. This means that I did not eat anything for the duration of the flight....."

Pros: "Flight was on time Baggage arrived on time Light breakfast was good [ I chose not to have dinner ] Slept through 95% of the red-eye flight so it was a good experience"
Cons: "Seating is cramped in economy"

Pros: "Plane was on time Checked luggage arrived I slept for the duration of the trip which made the 5 hour flight OK."
Cons: "Legroom and seating in general is cramped. But unfortunately that is the case in today's travel experience with US carriers."

Pros: "Bulkhead seat Good choice of movies"
Cons: "Seat recline broken. Sarcastic male steward. Terrible food. Contracted Norovirus from the plane. Need to better disinfect between flights."

Pros: "The flight to and from Los Angeles was operated by British Airways and was on one of their Airbus fleet. Boarding was completed efficiently and with ease. I sat on the upper deck and was very comfortable in comparison to other major airlines previously used for this particular flight. The plane was very clean and the crew were outstanding. Nothing appeared to be too much trouble for crew, and they were ready with beverages, including tea and coffee, and snacks throughout the flight. In flight entertainment was good. All in all very pleasant flight to and from the U K."

Pros: "Good customer service, top notch on all aspects. Very attentive staff.."
Cons: "2 hours late to leave but part of wing flap needed to be repaired before flight"

Cons: "After waiting around in the airport for almost 10 hours we were finally told the flight was cancelled and my direct flight turned into a taxi transfer and 3 flights with a day lost on my vacation. I was not offered any compensation however I heard some passengers were given $7 food vouchers to be spent only in a small convenience store that was the only store open."

Pros: "It was a British Airways flight, plane was large, and felt more roomy than what I'm used to. The service was impeccable."

Cons: "I sat in the window seat. Trying to get out of the row is very difficult. The arm rests do not rise high enough to get around without needing to climb over them."

Pros: "everything was ok."
Cons: "I couldn't check in on time as the booking numbers were different on the actual company that was flying me. I was trying to do this on my phone and I had to call in each time. couldn't do it on the computer."

Pros: "Polite and friendly flight attendants, smooth boarding procedure"
Cons: "Trash everywhere on the plan by mid flight.... Broken tv screen"

Cons: "We were unable to find a row of seats to more comfortably facilitate traveling with a baby and a toddler as seats that should have had a cot or extra seating didn't have the cot and were sold out for an additional fee before we had the chance to. Discussing this with the staff at check0in and at the gate, made no difference as they had no knowledge of what was available on that particular flight. Every time I fly with American I'm reminded of why I don't like the airline and I will do my best to avoid them moving forward regardless of competitive ticket pricing."

Pros: "The crew members were pleasant"
Cons: "I had to pay an additional fee of $327 because I had a infant riding with me on my lap."

Pros: "I booked the seats with extra room - really glad I did. The food wasn't bad, the entertainment system worked. I definitely prefer the Virgin Atlantic entertainment system, but I fly AA fairly often and will continue to."
Cons: "The airport check-in was absolutely terrible. We were in line so long that an employee came up to us and said "I can't believe you're still here." Neither could I. We get to the airport at least three hours early because of stuff like this, but the incredibly slow line and unorganized way of handling it ate any of the time I'd looked so forward spending at Heathrow (I love hitting Boots etc)."

Pros: "For economy it felt roomier than other flights I have taken recently. Enjoyed the food the movies and the cabin staff."

Pros: "We got there"
Cons: "No way to get seat assignments until 4 hours before flight"

Pros: "Movies Food Comfortable seating"
Cons: "Going through security"

Cons: "The plane was old. The movies were played in the aisle and the selection was inappropriate/terrible. No kids on the flight and they played a Disney dinosaur movie and the Peanuts movie."

Pros: "comfortable seats, meal was better than expected, in flight entertainment was good"
Cons: "it's absurd to have to pay like $70 more for window seats"

Pros: "The inflight movie selection."
Cons: "The uncomfortable chair."

Cons: "Terribly uncomfortable seats, very dated entertainment options, bland food."

Pros: "I thought the cabin crew were very helpful and friendly and professional."
Cons: "The seeds were too close together N20. You almost couldn't eat your food or all the laptop because you're so crowded."

Cons: "Food wasn't very good"

Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "Miserable, ancient entertainment system that had to be restarted 3 times"

Pros: "That they actually gave a meal."
Cons: "Main course of chicken and rice was clearly on the small size for a 10+ hour flight. The chicken was in some vague sweet and sour sauce. It was a good thing that I had bought sandwiches before boarding. Return flight LHR to LAX was on BA and the main course of chicken and mashed potatoes was substantially larger and tastier."

Cons: "First of all, though this was booked as a Finnair flight, Finnair was never part of the process after the booking. We rec'd an email from Kayak saying we could check in 36 hrs early - not so. Even at the 24 hr mark, we were unable to check in via Finnair - had to go to British Airways. Finnair was not represented at either airport - British Airways. On the return, British Airways canceled our flight (2 hrs before takeoff), and we could not get a non-stop flight home. This meant that we had to change terminals, retrieve our bags at the layover, recheck, etc. which of course, added 3 hrs to the original length of the trip. Where's our compensation? We paid for a round trip non-stop flight."

Pros: "The crew was just fantastic. ...."
Cons: "I request special meal. ..unfortunately was not provided to me."

Pros: "Great crew-service was prompt"
Cons: "Food was served an hour after we took off and we got a snack 7 hours later!! You'd think that on a 9 hour flight, there would be two full meals. Also, entertainment system was tiny (4" screen) and colors were washed out with brightness/contrast so bad, you couldn't see anything at all. Seats were cramped-I took an Emirates flight from London to Bangalore-what a world of difference!!!! Never flying BA again, that's for sure."

Pros: "Maybe they should call these flights "Byzantine Airways". Finnair doesn't fly Boston to London, so my Finnair flight was on British Airways, but I did it that way because BA wanted more money that day. As a flight, it was OK. I don't think I have much to say about Finnair."
