Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Really friendly and efficient crew."
Cons: "Seats and entertainment screen."
Pros: "Great Crew"
Cons: "It would have been better had we not had a delay of 50 Minutes"
Pros: "Crew was great. The food Was good."
Cons: "Seats were very uncomfortable and there was no air control."
Cons: "Had our luggage checked for connecting flight in Frankfurt"
Pros: "The flight was fine, but there was not enough time to transfer between the gates in Frankfurt. That also did not give us enough time for our luggage to transfer."
Cons: "Longer transfer between flights in Frankfurt"
Cons: "Frankfurt Lufthansa ground staff gave us bad advise and sent us on a 2 mile walk for nothing."
Pros: "Crew was great and friendly"
Cons: "More organize during boarding, better food (it was either too hot or not hot enough, quality wasn’t good, snacks horrible) compare to other airlines, not sure if we’ll use Lufthansa again for overseas trips"
Pros: "Non eventful flight."
Pros: "Standard German efficiency. Neither good nor bad."
Pros: "Our flight was delayed by over 45 minutes because of some technical issues with the plane but the crew serving us was ever smiling and very courteous. They were making jokes and never once did i see them frown at any demand made by any passenger. The food was very good despite being plane food too!"
Cons: "Delayed flight!"
Pros: "Barcelona airport is beautiful. The Chechen in staff was helpful and arranged wheelchair assistance for all legs of my flight"
Cons: "We requested extra leg room seats on the bulkhead. We did not get them which was not a big deal on this leg of the flight but on the flight from Frankfurt to SFO which was 10+ hours, was miserable"
Pros: "Gentle crew"
Cons: "1,5 hours delay again"
Cons: "Business class with normal seats and empty seat in the middle is not the same."
Pros: "I made it to my destination"
Cons: "Cancelled flight, timing, and a day lay over I wasn’t pre pared for."
Cons: "Weather delay caused us (and hundreds, or perhaps thousands, of other travelllers) to miss connections. Lufthansa lost our luggage, and to get rid of us, told us they would send it to the hotel we had to check into on account of the overnight delay. They never delivered the luggage, and other employees later told us over the phone that this was not going to happen. The terminal was filled with tired and frustrated travelers, and to make matters worse, the Lufthansa staff were temperamental and condescending to many. At the peak of the chaos, the Lufthansa staff went out on break, while hundreds waited in line for over 8 hours. We expected more - much more - in one of Lufthansa’s own German domestic hubs."
Pros: "The staff was courteous,friendly and helpful. The Plane was on time. The crew took time to tell us what we would be seeing as we flew, it was a beautiful morning for the flight until we experienced overcast skies in Austria- Germany. The staff did their job well with minimal comfort disruption."
Cons: "I would take this flight again. The only thing I would change is unloading procedure of walking down stairs on the outside of the terminal, then loaded on a stand up bus for a rather long ride to the terminal. It reminded me of London. But, I guess it is something you have to deal with."
Pros: "family line at check in made boarding a breeze."
Cons: "Two hours to unload my luggage!"
Pros: "Flew back last weekend in February. Transfer between plane from Barcelona in Frankfort (LH hub) to flight to Boston extremely chaotic. Masses of passengers all attempting to transfer to US bound flights. Insufficient staff from both Lufthansa and German border control to process or even organize the masses of people flying that day. Mob scene at transfer points. Not up to LH usual standards. Quite surprising as their passenger volume data should have alerted them to impending problems. Our flight was delayed over an hour for takeoff so USA bound connecting passengers (whose luggage was already on the planes) could be processed."
Cons: "Chaos and disorganization. Masses of connecting passengers unable to get to their flights anywhere near planned boarding time. Takeoffs delayed substantially."
Pros: "Flight itself was fine. Some turbulence but that could not be helped"
Cons: "My 6am flight was cancelled while we were waiting in line. No one explained anything. Just went up to desk and I was put on a flight an hour later. But then my bag did not make it I was there in plenty of time to check in. Easy explanation would have helped"
Cons: "Delayed flight"
Pros: "The crew are friendly and generous"
Pros: "The crew was attentive and everything went smoothly. I was able to change my seat."
Cons: "They charged 40 Euro for baggage. On the charge again? Why this was not on any agreement International flights one baggage suppose to be free"
Pros: "They were average in terms of comfort and crew. You can only get so conofortable in economy class and the crew did what they were expected to. I did feel that my empty meal tray was left on my table for quite some time though."
Cons: "We had no individual entertainment on the flight, only very old CRT screens hanging from the ceiling, circa 1995. They did show movies but the sound quality was poor and my headphone jack did not work so I had to share with my husband. They offered no explanation for this, since their website clearly promises individual screens for international flights. When asked, the FA simply said "this isn't our usual plane for these types of flights." However, we had the same issue when flying to Frankfurt with them, so the company seems to just be lying. The food can barely pass as food. Everything was ice cold except the main dinner entree, even the bread. The only vegetable available throughout our 8+ hour flight was shredded carrots absolutely swimming in mayonnaise. The boarding process was exceedingly slow and they would not allow use of cell phones for boarding passes, although their check in provides the attachments. This required probably 1/4 of those boarding to have to step aside to another line for a paper copy. Again, no apologies or explanations from the company. Overall, I wish I had shopped around a bit more and chosen another airline. International flying is supposed to be somewhat enjoyable, even in economy class. Instead, this was the longest 8+ hours of my life."
Cons: "Entertainment center did not work. I paid for wifi and did not work and need my money back. The headphone jack for the tv did not work."
Pros: "The snacks were nice."
Cons: "We were delayed over 30 minutes and we did not get an update until like 20 minutes of sitting in the gate, which made me almost miss my connecting flight to New York. I also think that in the Barcelona airport there should be just a line to drop off the luggage since there is a self check out machine. It doesn't make sense to do the self check out and still get on the regular check out line to drop off the luggage."
Pros: "Timing was on schedule"
Cons: "I had to pay 142 euros for my bags. I'm united Global and never have to pay for my bags. I don't mind a fee, but that was ridiculous!"
Pros: "Not good"
Cons: "Long lines and chaos at counters two hours waiting -- poor hotel provided-- poor food -- so awful. Now I hope we can get home today"
Cons: "Systems were down. And it was chaos getting the boarding passes. Nothing was communicated to us until over an hour waiting in line. My daughter was miserable waiting as everyone passed by us, bumping into her and not apologizing."
Pros: "The service is good."
Cons: "Noises obnoxious passengers drinking standing up in the isles for long periods. Hanging on other passenger's seats. Very rude and clearly didn't care. Flight attendent tried to get them to sit and hold it down but it had little effect. They were part of a larger group so they wanted the flight to be a social event."
Pros: "fast, efficient, on time. Friendly crew"
Cons: "Me ubicaron en el último asiento y no se podía reclinar."
Pros: "Absolutely the worst flight land and air stewards i havr ever seen. Would never flu with them againrude groun personel"
Cons: "The airplane left Barcelona late and arrived in Frankfurt late. Lufthansa only allowed a 45 minute layover in Frankfurt to catch our connecting flight to Seattle. Because we arrived late - we only had 20 minutes to catch our connecting flight to Seattle. What made this an awful experience is that the flight from Barcelona landed at Gate A - our connecting flight was at Gate Z. This was as about as far away from each gate as you could get. This was over a mile to run in order to catch our connecting flight - I hurt my hamstring during the run. The Lufthansa "assisting agent" in the Frankfurt terminal was less than helpful and laughed when we told her where our connecting gate was. Not only did she laugh but she did not offer any assistance to get us to the gate on time. Prior to our trip - I called Lufthansa and voiced my concern that a 45 minute layover for an international flight was not a lot of time for us to make a connecting flight. The agent I spoke with said that legally - 45 minutes was a standard lay over for Lufthansa and she did not offer me any alternatives. This was not a pleasant experience with Lufthansa and I doubt we will fly with you again."
Pros: "It was a relatively short flight. Boarding went well and efficiently. Flight crew was attentive."
Pros: "It was definitely on time, service is good and it was a very nice flight."
Pros: "Courteous crew. Nice aircraft."
Cons: "My bag is approved carry-on size, and I travel weekly with it. The gate agent forced to check it which was unnecessary and unreasonable."
Cons: "Umm. It was cancelled due to union workers striking. It was great to spend our last day in Barcelona stressing over whether we could get back home."
Pros: "New plane. Good service."
Cons: "Disorganized boarding."
Pros: "The flight crew were very welcoming and understanding. The current entertainment helped make the trip more enjoyable. We got to our destination right on schedule. Nothing more I can ask, I will fly Lufthansa on my next trip."
Pros: "The service on the plane was great!"
Cons: "The movie selection could improve."
Pros: "The food was excellent and service was professional and friendly"
Pros: "Boarding was well done. Keeping the correct sections boarding at their proper time. The in flight entertainment was excellent."
Cons: "Seats were very stiff. I have long legs and nowhere to put them. If you don't speak German you feel like a step child. Lighting turned on by the passenger to my left illuminated me while I was trying to sleep. No ability to control air flow. Got very hot sitting in the middle."
Pros: "Economy class seats are very tight and especially when the person in front tilts their seat back. Long flights can become very uncomfortable."
Pros: "The flight personal was very nice and Understanding. The food had a vegetarian Option which was very accommodating."
Cons: "I bought this flight months before the flight date and when I came to SeaTac to check in, I was told that I did not have a seat. The reasoning being because the flight was overbooked. That's not my fault and was very frustrating to have to wait for my seat, while everybody was boarding. Luckily, I still got overhead Storage for my backpack, but if not, then I would have been expected to just deal with it? All in all, it worked out, but it started out as a very frustrating experience. I hope that it won't be the same on my way back"
Pros: "Pumpkin soup instead of a heavy entree was welcome and tasty. Breakfast yogurt portion was generous, the granola less so. Accompaniments were good. Butter was not ice cold, thank goodness."
Cons: "Inbelievably chaotic boarding process for Kili to Dar leg. No boarding lanes so had to fight through the crowd. Was able to observe cleaning process at Dar stop, which was cursory and am sure there was no cleaning of seats of those who boarded at Kili."
Pros: "The plane ✈️ itself the attendants . The entertainment on board. Really great"
Cons: "Nothing dissatisfying about the flight nor the airline staff . Very polite, very professional. It was a Great flight. For long trips this airline is one of the best."
Pros: "Very friendly and responsive crew. Announcements from the Capitan and chief of flight attendants are very informative and comforting. Seat positions: very good leg room (even in economy)!"

Pros: "Decent price for economy comfort seat, 4A."

Cons: "Staff rude and short"
Pros: "Seat was uncomfortable. There was nothing to like. In past I have traveled by KLM but this time it was worst."

Pros: "General flight journey"
Cons: "There was no wifi on flight"
Cons: "The air conditioners fan was bad and they had to fix it in London which took over 40 minutes off travel time...we arrived much later than expected in Lagos"
Pros: "It was all fine"

Pros: "Crew was nice and friendly"

Cons: "The movie options, as well as music and TV options were limited. There were no electrical outlets."
Cons: "Boarding was confusing and disorganized"
Cons: "Our two hour connection in Paris became 30 minutes because Air France was late in leaving Washington. So our luggage didn't make to to KLM to Amsterdam. My poor rating was because the luggage handling was really poor. Lots of flights from Paris to Amsterdam (almost hourly), but my bag showed up 12 hours later. My wife's bag took 36 hours. And yes, we checked in together. There were lots of confusing messages"
Pros: "Flight crew was fine. Food was good."
Cons: "Checking in was extensive for unaccompanied minor. But gate crew was very unnattentuve and though we showed up as first in line, they did not focus, and kept saying to wait. Ultimately our son was last person on the plane."
Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "Entertainment was dated and poor in function. Our bags were 99 dollars each and we’re both lost and didn’t arrive. I just filed a claim and got rude service saying I should have filed the claim at the airport baggage area but there was not anybody there to do the claim then he agent upstairs said they just spoke to them and they are there and I should have done it there. This was so rude and there is no way to get back into customs area. If we paid 200 for bags I expect them to arrive on time. I’m asking for a refund of the baggage fees."
Cons: "Please Endeavour to put the expiration date on the food served in the flight."
Pros: "The flight crew was nice. Plane departed/arrived on time."
Cons: "I paid €60 extra to sit in the emergency door seat to get more leg room but once.i was in the plane learned for more leg room I accepted a smaller seat next to a bathroom and no entertainment. I could not store my belongings near me. No power outlet to charge my devices for my own entertainment on a 7 hour flight. Dealing with constant traffic for the bathroom. I sat in the middle seat between two hours other men. It was a constant struggle arm space. After 7hours in the air I could not wait to get off the plane. If I didn't actually pay an extra €60 for the seat I may not feel bad but I feel like I might have been better off without paying for the "upgrade""
Pros: "The food was excelent"
Cons: "I have to pay to pay a little more confort"
Pros: "Nice seats, comfortable."
Cons: "Again, no aisle seat for SkyTeam Gold member. Also, my baggage was lost. First bag arrived a day late, second after I had left Billund and it was six days before the bag with my clothes reached me. I was told I will have 100 euro credit for clothing, but in the winter and for 6 days, this was not even close to the amount I needed for clothing and necessities, to have my time here."
Pros: "Service impeccable!"
Cons: "They have one line of executive class after the kitchen and toilet, is very noisy."
Cons: "Service from airline host Poorly maintained plane Bad food Old entertainment"
Pros: "I was pleasantly surprised they had a snack service on such a short flight. The flight attendants were very friendly"
Cons: "Amsterdam customs is the most disorganized I have ever seen. With the number of tourists entering the country you would think they would have done something about it. There were only 2 customs agents!! One for all passports and 1 for all passports. We were in the customs hall longer than we were in flight!"
Pros: "Crew was friendly..business class seat was very comfortable and seemed wider than most Nice power outlets great entertainment system"
Cons: "Row 6 in business is after the first 5 rows and Galley and restroom. Very awkward"
Cons: "Didn't allow my carry on. Said too big. Same bag was on earlier connecting flight on much smaller plane. Also on flight on Southwest week prior. But larger intercontinental flight wouldn't allow it."
Pros: "Of the multiple international airlines I recently flew with, I would have to say KLM was by far the best. Relaxing atmosphere, comfortable seating, great in-flight entertainment, although I have the go-go in-flight data/entertainment plan with t-mobile (highly recommended), the flight included a decent selection of movies, television programs, etc. The food far exceeded typical "airline quality," even for an international flight - and included a fabulous little snack box with locally sourced gourmet and specialty items such as chocolate from Belgium, fine cheeses from France, and crackers from England. Drinks = gratis, and crew was exceptionally attentive and went out of their way to make flight as pleasant as possible."
Pros: "Same as above"
Pros: "KLM fed a sandwich even though the flight was only 2 hours. The crew was pleasant. Getting through the Amsterdam airport to catch a connecting flight with only an hour to do so was no big deal. Airport staff was pleasant and helpful."
Pros: "Spacious cabins, friendly service"
Pros: "leg room economy compared to KLM"
Cons: "full flight, no upgrade possible"
Cons: "The crew on the Lagos Amsterdam route (in economy) are particularly unfriendly and brusque. This is my experience each time i fly this route in economy"
Cons: "With skyteam elite status cannot select free upgrade from economy to premium economy unless it is 30hrs before boarding for this code share which is actually a KLM flight"
Pros: "Excellent service"
Cons: "Having to pay extra to pick a seat prior to check-in. I didn't, and got a decent seat anyway."
Pros: "The flight crew were kind, polite, and attentive."
Cons: "Bussing to the plane was a bit odd, but the crew remained organized in doing so. When we arrived to the plane, they had both entrances open so that those sitting near the rear of the plane would enter from the back. Plane was a little chilly, but I have come to expect that one most flights."
Pros: "The cabin crew was very friendly and helped me to move from a center seat to an aisle seat. They were good natured throughout the flight, especially one gentleman. The main meal was also surprisingly tasty."
Cons: "The cabin crew was very friendly and helped me to move from a center seat to an aisle seat. They were good natured throughout the flight, especially one gentleman. The main meal was also surprisingly tasty."

Pros: "We were able to pre-board with our toddler."
Cons: "The heat was on for the entire flight, it was miserable. The worst flight I’ve ever taken."
Pros: "Flight itself was very smooth, especially the landing. Food was good also, both the chicken and pasta were prepared well. Pasta could have used a little more sauce. Quantities and variety were also good."
Cons: "I still don't understand why airlines don't board from the back to the front. Would make the entire process go much smoother. The bigger the plane the bigger the problem and delay. I don't mind storing a bag under the seat but there's more stuff taking up legroom so it's hard to get the feet comfortable which is important for those longer flights."
Cons: "So out flight from Heathrow to Frankfurt arrived late at the Heathrow airport and, reportedly in a hurry to let us take off, they chose to inconvenience us further by not loading all our luggage. They said on the plane that, if we are missing our luggage, it will come in on the next flight. I don’t understand the logic of the decision to not load our luggage to try to save us time."
Cons: "Flight delayed by one hour Gate not announced as indicated on flight board When announced only gave about one half hour to make it to gate and board"
Cons: "Cancelled flight and horrible customer service!"
Pros: "I only gave the low rating on food and entertainment because there was no free food or entertainment on the flight. Overall, however, the flight was fine."
Cons: "No free beverage. At least give the passengers some water."
Cons: "Late like always no even a free drink of water sad sad"
Pros: "The boarding and crew was nice... no complaints."
Cons: "Did not realize that, at least, water was NOT complimentary ... food & drink had to be paid for. Bummer."
Pros: "The crew was very nice"
Cons: "The seats are not too comfortable"
Pros: "The flight kept getting delayed, but made up during flight so I was able to catch my connection in Frankfurt. Very pleased about that."
Cons: "The flight was delayed by 50 minutes and the gate was not available until 30 minutes of departure. Tap water, really?"
Cons: "Flew into 1 concourse a few minutes late had to go through security checks and run to make boarding in another concourse. No place to use the restroom along the way, I will avoid Heathrow at all costs when traveling in the future."
Cons: "We nearly missed the plane due to how closely our flights were scheduled. Then our luggage did not arrive with us our plane. We didnt have time to stop for a snack or water so a small something would have been helpful."
Pros: "Flight was over all comfortable."
Cons: "No snacks were provided."
Cons: "At security London Heathrow, it took 30 minutes for them to check 1 bag of ours! Almost didn't make the flight."

Cons: "Heathrow connecting gate announced only shortly before flight, thousands of connecting passengers kept in a central holding pen like cattle flight: have to pay even for a cup of water"
Pros: "There should be a special section for babies."
Cons: "Sitting on runway for 3 hrs and then get kicked off without good instruction. This was our 1st trip, so we felt stupid about everything after the flight was cancelled. Oh well. Much smarter now."
Cons: "Not sure if I am more unhappy with Kayak for not warning me or British Airways for charging me €75 for eached checked baggage. Even a sofa or tea cost money on this flight. Should think twice before booking this airline!"
Pros: "High Life magazine"
Cons: "No complementary beverages"
Cons: "I know that I shouldn't be shocked by the continued degradation of the airlines, but there should be a line. To me, a simple glass of water should not be too much to ask."
Pros: "quite nice and friendly staff. many vacant seats and thus much space to seat comfortable"
Cons: "old airplane, kind of run down impression. annoying and not really working touchscreen, lousy choice of movies. Everything had the air of not being organized, we had to change our seats twice without knowing, why. Really poor food compared to any other airline I know. One of the stewards constantly spilled drops of beverages over me, when he was pouring them for me and the passengers around."
Pros: "No issues with the size of my carry-on backpack, and a small backpack as a laptop bag."
Cons: "Only Amex credit cards accepted for in-flight food and beverage purchases."
Cons: "Delayed twice, switched gates, AND forced to gate check my carry on "because the plane was small" and supposedly they were having everyone check their bags. Except that didn't turn out to be true. Frustrating although baggage claim had bags waiting when we got through customs."

Pros: "Crew was polite."
Cons: "Flight was delayed. Seats very cramped."
Pros: "Service with a smile! My bag didn't make it back from Heathrow to Newark but British Airways was on top of it. They apologized for the inconvenience and located my bag and I had it within 48 hours. I HIGHLY recommend this airline to everybody!"

Pros: "I Like the check in process, the punctuality of the flight"
Cons: "The food was terrible, they kept me waiting for my strolley on LHR for over half an hour!"
Pros: "Food and movies"
Cons: "Bathroom cleanliness. Entertainment system."
Pros: "This flight was not bad at all."
Cons: "It was okay flight"
Pros: "The airplane was extremely hot no AC, kept us waiting on airplane in London 45 mins before take off, we waited 2 hours in JFK with NO AIr Conditioning!!! Which we were already 2 hour late from 2 hour delay in London ! A full plane with no AC! Ridiculous!!!! Flight attendants not helpful."
Pros: "Friendly crew, good food and great inflight movies"
Cons: "Even though we selected to be seated together, on all of our flights we were seated apart."
Pros: "Choice of movies"
Cons: "No personality of flight attendants-never tried to engage. Hardest, most uncomfortable seats I've experienced and I am a frequent flyer"
Cons: "My seat had a broken entertainment screen. They were restarted a few times, but no one offered me to change seats to a functional one. There were seats in business and first class that were not taken as well as a few economy. It was a 10 hour flight!"
Pros: "Wonderful service from crew; comfortable, highly recommend!"
Pros: "Great flight crew! Professional & friendly"
Cons: "Tight seating.Inability to choose seating prior to check in without paying."
Pros: "I took the bus back and forth from SF to London. Overseas I am now in contemplation of only flying British Airways from now on. The ride is comfortable, enjoyable, entertaining, adequate space, excellent service, food and drinks are the best I have had, and exceptional services and attention. This goes for both flights. I have been recommending Britsh Airways over the last several weeks to pretty much everyone I know. My family and I will be looking to British Airways for overseas flights as a priority."
Cons: "Connecting flight thru Heathrow was too close for comfort. I just reached the gate at the end of boarding. If there had been a glitch at all I would have missed the flight."

Cons: "The food!!!! Worst airline food. The crew barely announce in English. Boarding process is a mess"
Cons: "The check-in crew gave terrible service. We almost missed our flight because they wouldn’t check us in. There was no one directing people on where to line up for whatever departure time they had. Just overall a bad experience with Air Europa."
Pros: "The only thing I liked was the company of the people sitting next to me on the flight and the fact that we arrived safely."
Cons: "The service at the check in counter could have been better. The online booking should have clearly stated that there will be a additional charge for check in luggage The crew on the flight used my overhead storage for their own bags and I had to put my bag under my legs. I barely fit in the seat"
Cons: "No AC"
Pros: "I liked that a could get a row of seats to sleep in"
Cons: "Better films, the selection was old and poor"
Pros: "Lost bag was delivered all the way to Chesapeake VA."

Cons: "Very poor company . Not recomendet . Dont fligth wuit them"
Cons: "Don’t sit on the isles seat. I kept getting bumped by the staff with no apology. One male flight attendant kept bumping my arm just about every time he passed by. Made no attempt to avoid my arm or shoulder. I got pretty pissed by the third bump."
Cons: "the flight was 40 minutes late and then it took more than an hour to get to the gate and get our luggage. I lost a flight that I was connecting. I was told that I had ample time (2 and a half hours) Did not receive any help to connect on time."
Pros: "The price"
Cons: "Some of the crew was very rude, food was bad forca 9 hr flight!!!"
Cons: "Boarding time notification and check luggage’s cost"
Pros: "Free wine with your meal."
Cons: "The staff at check in were very rude, we were never advised about paying $150 extra per bag each way! They stated because we booked through a travel agency instead of booking directly with air Europa they charged us for luggage. It was an unexpected large expense. Crew barely spoke any English."
Pros: "Food service, clean, friendly service, decent leg room, very accommodating for those with special needs, small children etc. One bag free, Carry on bag, and personal item. Fast easy."
Pros: "The crew was helpful, well spirited, and timely."
Cons: "The inflight TV monitors didn't work."
Cons: "Flight left an hour late, cabin was very hot."
Pros: "Nice plan and staff."
Cons: "Very slow baggage drop off at Barcelona airport."
Pros: "Quick boarding , left and arrived on time."
Cons: "Having to pay $60 for a suitcase and not getting a reminder that i needed to pay for the luggage in order to save $30. Other passengers had two suitcases that were treated as carryon and they were not. I am still trying to figure out a way to check in my luggage for my departing trip."
Pros: "Reasonably priced, nice clen plane, no hassels"
Cons: "Everything was good"
Cons: "I was taken back by the crew not friendly"
Cons: "Every flight was at least an hour delayed. We were insanely late for our connection flight due to a totally unnecessary delay at the first airport. We then SPRINTED across the whole Madrid airport and then when we arrived to second plane was TWO HOURS delayed. The staff always seemed to be working, but was completely inefficient in getting anything done. It took them 20 minutes to respond to our notice (we pressed the air attendant button on our seats) and then told us we couldn't get snacks because they were giving out pizzas, which took another hour. Every single part of our flight was delayed and inefficient... with no reason ever being given. It was pretty miserable overall and I will likely never use Air Europa ever again."
Pros: "Friendly staff. Good proportion of quality-price for the airfare."
Cons: "In BCN airport, too few counter clerks to deal with a long line of passengers boarding for multiple flights."
Cons: "Bad services, and the staff too"
Cons: "No complimentary snacks"
Pros: "The plane was new and clean. Flight staff was pleasant."
Cons: "Late take off and almost missed connecting flight to US. The connecting flight was at the very farthest gate from where we entered the terminal. Saw many AE passengers from my flight with disabilities and children struggling to make it to their connecting flights in Madrid."
Cons: "The check in took more than an hour, by that time the flight was already boarding and had to beg people to let me pass. I was one of the last people to board. I was at the airport roughly hour and half in advance, and the flight attendants at the check-in counters didn't care how much time you had left to make it to your flight. Awful experience!!!"
Pros: "Most of the staff was friendly and professional"
Cons: "As a musician all it takes is one flight attendant to make your trip a nightmare. Every flight is a game of cat and mouse to get your instrument on board. I was told there wasn't enough room, in the end half the over heads were empty."
Pros: "Everything about the flight from the moment I boarded was totally fine."
Cons: "The line to get checked-in in Barcelona was extremely long and I waited nearly an hour - can't help thinking if the online check-in was more dependable, it would have been a shorter line, but I made it to my gate with time to grab some lunch so life's still not all that bad."
Cons: "the transfer took 30 minutes - why land in the most distant place in the airport to transfer to next flight. get your logistics together."
Pros: "Nice, new, spacious aircraft!"
Cons: "Grouchy stewardess. Most stewardesses did not speak English. Vacant exit row not available to sit in. Boarding staff did not notify by loud speaker of boarding beginning in Miami."
Cons: "The flight was cancelled"
Pros: "Friendly staff, clean airplane, entertainment options, etc."
Cons: "There were no vegetarian options for me to choose from on the flight and it seemed like not many options for others with different types of dietary restrictions."
Pros: "Nice aircraft, nice crew"
Cons: "Had trouble confirming flight on their mobile app, then suddenly it worked. At airport kiosk, for printed ticket, was only in Spanish German and French. Muddled through that and got printout. Then to find out onboard they would even charge for water?"
Pros: "Seat clean crew nice windows new different improved. I liked you served pinapple juice The dinner was very good. TV great"
Cons: "The breakfast ...not so good (but good that you provide it.) The whitebreard sandwich could be much better...I don't even know what was in it. The muffin was not interesting but it tasted ok. apple is,better. it was just sugar. Maybe a bigger yoguart plain with real berries. a sandwich ham and cheese on a croissant then I eat at least the croissant! then you don't need a muffin."
Pros: "The flight was ok. The bording gate was very far."
Cons: "The whole flight there were commercials in the personal tvs. Without beening able to stop them."
Pros: "Crew was very pleasant and helpful; I forgot to put my seat up n they got me straight with a big smile!! Makes a difference how you correct people. Plane looked fresh n clean And had pillows n blankets, didn't have to ask for one. Four smooth landings!! Thank you for a great trip"
Cons: "Tight squeeze sitting"
Pros: "- I like the economic price. - I like that I was flying in economic class and I was allow to carry two luggages. That makes the difference with any other airline."
Cons: "There was one hour delay because the Madrid airport was foggy and they never told the passengers what was going on. When the airplane was almost landing at the Madrid airport with the normal low speed, then suddenly accelerated and start going up to flying around Madrid, then they put music and they never told the passengers what happened or what was going on again."
Pros: "the aircraft how clean it was."
Cons: "that the flight was delayed for 1 houyr."
Pros: "Price was Ok, but not great for a 30 minute flight"
Cons: "Both flights were at lest an hour or more late. Some disorder in boarding. Screaming kids... and parents who did not discipline them."
Pros: "The crew were very helpful once boarded in assisting with overhead baggage."
Cons: "The flight had major turbulence without any communication from the pilot or crew as to what to expect and having been on 8 flights just this week I am not a first time flyer, but have not felt so uncomfortable with noises of what what sounded like ice hitting the plane. Just looking around it was clear I was not the only one who felt this way. I understand that the pilots did there best to navigate through the weather but for the future it would be great for them to communicate that we would be hitting some turbulence. The landing as well was one of the worst I have experienced. I will not be flying or recommending air Europa to anyone. Just checking in to receive boarding passes was a nightmare as they informed me the plane had already closed even though it was an hour before my flight left. I was then directed to customer service who then sent me back to the counter where I finally received my boarding pass. Running through the airport and to security was awful and when I arrived at the gate the gate was still open and people were still boarding. It seems as thought air Europa is more concerned with how many tickets they can sell than customer service."
Cons: "it was delayed. they told us wouldn't affect our connection. Going out to get on and off the plane- awfullll . having to board a bus to go to the terminal and waiting. terrible."
Cons: "The web page didnt work The app for ios didn't work. The line at barajas airport was huge, a lot of annoyed people and just 4 counters.. Really?! Plane was delayed beacause of this. Never again"
Cons: "Delayed 1 hour 40 min. No communication from airline regarding new departing time or gate. Boarding was a free for all"
Pros: "We made it safe."
Cons: "I got "upgraded" to first class. Where the spacing between seats was smaller than USA economy seating. After jamming my knees in I was told being upgraded didn't entitle me to free food or drinks. Yup wanted to charge for a bag of peanuts. Adding insult to injury takes about an hour to get your bag when you finally get off."
Cons: "Have to pay if you want a juice or coffee. In order to aboard to plane you have to take a bus first and drop to you at front of airplane taking a lot of time in order to aboard."
Cons: "Very cramped plane, weren't given breakfast or drinks. I just suggest never flying Air Europa. Terrible airline."
Pros: "Boarding was good No pushing and shoving to get aboard. .Departed on time ."
Pros: "A nice short flight from Barcelona to Madrid. No complaints."
Cons: "Nothing negative to report."
Cons: "Boarding improvement Delay flight both ways one hour l missed reservations of car as will hotel this costs me money"
Pros: "It got to the destination."
Cons: "It was late to board. Plane is there. Nothing is happening."
Pros: "Todo fue dentro del tiempo planificado, abordaje y aterrizaje"
Pros: "A cheap flight for the right price can't complain."
Cons: "Long delay at boarding but not a serious issue!"
Cons: "The plane didn't arrive so we couldn't take off. Our flight was delayed more than 1 hour."
Pros: "The priority boarding"
Cons: "The plane was hot and small"
Pros: "Chose Priority Boarding. It was easy getting on and off. I was a little worried about my over rstuffed carryons but wasn't hassled. Just had to rearrange some stuff to fit in overhead."
Cons: "Flight was late but not Ryanair's fault. BCN was stacking up flights due to crowding"
Pros: "They play music while boarding"
Cons: "Seats don't recline No complementary water AC barely works They make you line up 1 hour before boarding"
Cons: "Nothing was served not even water. We were crammed in very tightly"
Cons: "Disorganized. Stand in line 3 times. The fare should includes bags or state that when booking for flight. Was not show we have to pay for seat assigment."
Pros: "It was easy to check in"
Cons: "We asked for a special assistance for grandfather. Nothing came out. Too bad."
Pros: "It was on time and comfortable"
Pros: "Tight seating. Short flight with no food."
Pros: "The flight was very good and excellent staff."
Cons: "The system for check in very difficult getting response for some questions impossible it took over an hour to check in on line. I found the experience very stressful. Will not fly Ryan Air again. I was told by staff check in yourself or pay 44 euro each there were 2 of us. Both in our 80 s. No kindness at all from check in staff."
Cons: "No me gusto el hecho de tener que hacer check in y no haberlo hecho y que la penalizacion sea tan alta...esto es un robo juegan con la necesidad de las personas y se aprovechan de ella, no vuelvo a viajar con ryanair es demasiado complicado andar imprimiendo tickets cuando uno anda de viaje en lugares que no conoce y tener que andarse preocupando por ello, hay otras lineas areas de bajo costo que no hacen lo mismo y son mucho mas comodas"
Cons: "The plane did not arrive to Paris."
Cons: "5 hour delay No communication from staff No announcement Staff risky rude and didn't care Staff extremely unhelpful"
Pros: "The people were polite"
Cons: "Why do you have to go to one counter to pay for your checked bag then another to actually check it in? Flight was delayed. Flight was full so I had to check my carry on bag. Took way longer overall than expected and costs more than expected"
Pros: "I liked that it got me where I wanted to go. The staff was nice."
Cons: "I had to jump through hoops to print a boarding pass even though I had Ryanairs app with a mobile boarding pass. 3 hours of my Sat and Sunday in Barcelona were spent searching for an open copy/print shop. Would have been nice to know more than 48 hours before my flight. I get to the airport after not finding a print shop, expecting to pay through the nose for them to print the tickets for me and they say I didn't even need it. They supply the boarding pass. Wow. The boarding is a joke. They don't board in zones, so the line was literally 180 people long. I wasn't even in the back of the line and it still bothered me. Now let's get to the plane, again, staff and pilot were great. The seats have NO leg room. I have long legs and it was miserable. No seat back pocket to put things. No recline on the seats. The aisle way sagged everytime someone walked past me, leaning my seat toward the aisle. I know, I know, you get what you pay for. This flight I paid for a lesson. That lesson being never never never ever ever ever fly Ryanair again. I would gladly pay a little more money to save my poor knees from being in that position again."
Cons: "My 81 year old father was asked at the final hour to measure his carry on luggage right before loading the bus on the tarmac to take us to the plane. They had already looked at it at check in. They pulled him out of line after he handed over his passport and then told him they were going to charge him for his carryon because it was too big. He place it in the measuring device and it fit so it was not too big. They ended up not charging him but the experience was very unpleasant."
Pros: "Baby pushcar was ready on the taac"
Cons: "Delay of 45 min while sitting in th plane ( with 2 small childeren)"
Pros: "Good value for the money. Quick check in and good seating order."
Cons: "The seats don't recline and the arms are hard plastic so it was an uncomfortable flight."
Cons: "No trays"
Cons: "Online check in was not great and could not access the mobile boarding passes after doing online check in."
Pros: "Just the affordability of the fare"
Cons: "The crew seemed to be in a crush. They weren't pleasant at all. No food was offered and the snacks sold was triple the regular price. The inside of the plane looks like it's about to fall down any moment."
Cons: "all expensive and all separate payments for everything. I think was not fair to charge me for checking in charges for about a minute or 2 due to a slow system at the airport when printing boarding pass. Other bad experience was very uncomfortable seats on the plane overall. In general just do much charges for everything."
Cons: "You have to wait in crazy long lines and you will probably miss your flight like we did and fork out 250 euro for the next flight. They do not use technology and have far too few employees to handle the number of customers they have. I will never try to use this airline again. This is the first review I have ever written."
Cons: "Charge me for checking in €45.00 plus €65.00 for one lugage. Don't recommend this airline to no one."
Cons: "Very rude check in staff Charge for boarding pass No food or entertainment Long time to board a small plane!"
Pros: "It's Ryanair you get a bargain price."
Cons: "Flight and services was as expected. I didn't purchase food. Seats don't recline."
Cons: "More leg room would have been great, Also, the seats could not recline."
Cons: "The flight was delayed almost 2 hrs...."
Cons: "Flight was significantly delayed, slow boarding"
Pros: "Affordable. Able to pay for checked bag on phone since we arrived 2 hours ahead."
Cons: "Flight delayed. No boarding process. No ability to pay for luggage at check in counter."
Cons: "Line in the airport disorganized ; had to pay for boarding passes last minute; had to pay for water in plane; didn't take credit cards in plane"
Pros: "Cheap seat fair. Super friendly staff and crew!"
Cons: "You pay for everything. Checked bags. Boarding pass printing. And the seats are tiny. TINY! I'm tall but not abnormally tall and my knees hit the seats. I'm also not obese, but the seats make me feel like I am. There is no hip room."
Cons: "My flight was canceled an hour before departure. Then the line to talk to a representative about cancelled flights took 6 HOURS becuase they only had 2/6 of their representatives helping. The next flight they were offering was five days later so I had to book on a different airline and now I have to go through the whole complaint process to get my compensation."
Cons: "The trip started with being able to check in online but their website timing out before getting us our boarding passes (we tried multiple times on multiple devices) and it turns out it costs 15 euros to print your boarding pass in the airport.... After that dilemma we learned our standard carry on size bags were too big and we went online to pay to check them for 25 euros a bag. Had we paid at the counter it would have been 50 euros a bag... Lastly, there was the worst turbulence I have ever witnessed and I fly a lot."
Cons: "We got to the airport over two hours ahead of time and were told since we hadn't checked in we had to go across the lobby and pay 60 more euros. I explained we didn't have a printer and the system wouldnt give us a boarding pass. He went on line and checked us in but couldn't print it so it would cost us 30 Euros. What a scam!! We will probably have to do the same going back since they dont accept foreign travelers using phone boarding passes. Will never use them again."
Cons: "The ladies at check in Barcelona were extremely rude and acted like helping was an inconvenience. This was our first time using Ryanair and this initial impression made me never want to use Ryanair again."
Pros: "Efficient and on time. No need to arrive 2 hours in advance for a domestic flight. One hour is fine."
Cons: "You have to pay to check a bag, which requires a separate window to pay, then over to the cpunter to turn in the bag. Very inefficient."
Pros: "Price starts off low"
Cons: "High bag fees. Employees not helpful in answering questions. We asked to please allow us to weigh bags and were denied until we checked in which means an excess of 10e per kilo if over their 15k or 20k. Very expensive to travel in Europe with baggage. Read the fine print before booking and good luck talking with anyone callingvtheir internatiknal number. Boarding disorganized and very uncoordinated. Plane very filthy and dirty."
Pros: "Flight was on time and they were very helpful at the gate."
Cons: "Checking in took way too long. The ladies checking in wete just talking to each other and not checking people in. The line was very long and it took us am hour to get one bag checked. I recommend only traveling with carry on luggage"
Pros: "Not much. Won't fly with them again. Would rather pay a bit more for being treated in a civil manner."
Cons: "Ryan has zero customer service and treat passengers like cattle. Paid extra for 4 people to have priority seating and an assured cabin bag space, yet was forced by staff to check bags at gate! Staff don't appear to know their own rules or tickets? Insisted nothing on our tickets indicated we had paid for that service, yet ticket clearly said Priority!! Another staff member later said we were right and should've kept our bags but at that point it was too late as they'd be loaded. And, there were multiple spaces still left in cabin overheads for bags when we boarded. All they tell you is to go online later and make a complaint or try to get a refund for the priority fee. But I imagine that's pointless and expect little response. Ryan Air... ripping you off while pretending to offer you a service."
Cons: "We were traveling through Europe the week prior to our flight. I checked in on-line 2 days ahead of the trip. when arrived at the RyanAir desk 2 hrs ahead of the flight, showed the checkin agent my check-in status on my iphone. After 5 minutes of her computer work, we were handed a slip and said we needed to go across to the Ryan Office to get a voucher, since we didn't print our boarding pass. I re-read the messages on my iphone which said to check-in ahead, or else penalty. Screen didn't say print boarding pass or else penalty. Spent 30 minutes + at the RyanAir office. They wanted an addition $150 (100 pounds) because we didn't print our boarding passes before showing up at the gate. I expressed we had been traveling in Europe the prior week and didn't have a way to print. They didn't care. A manager reduced the additional fee to $50 extra. Don't know why. After paying the extra, and spending 30 minutes, had to go back to the other line and wait another 30 minutes to get back where we were an hour prior, then were in a rush to make it through customs and make the flight. After making it to the gate, the flight was delayed about an hour, without any communication from the gate. Overall, after several hops with RyanAir and Vuelling touring Europe, this leg was a great reason to avoid RyanAir in the future. Vuelling was very helpful to a traveler like us and gladly provided a printed boarding pass!"
Pros: "Best seats in coach I've had in 40 years."
Cons: "Nothing. All Europeans I have talked to say this the only way to go!"
Pros: "I'd booked seats 1A and 1B, so I'm first off the aircraft, which is great because I don't have to fight my way through everyone else or everyone's massive cumbersome hand luggage, which it seemed the majority of passengers had."
Cons: "Because of where I was sat it felt like I was in a waiting room, with people hanging around waiting for the toilet, and because once the trolleys have started going down the aisle, these people were stuck bang in front of me because they had nowhere to go, and when certain passengers personal hygiene isn't the best it's not the most pleasant of odours lingering around me."
Pros: "You get what you paid for. The flight is dead cheap, but it is all you get. Everything else will cost you extra money - including checking in at the airport or getting your boarding pass"
Cons: "- Dont expect any customer service. They dont care even if you are in rush - Check in online and make sure you have your boarding pass printed and your luggage comply with the requirement, else you will need to spend 45 euro just for check in and another 45 euro for extra luggage in the airport - Even you have checked in online, they will require you to print the boarding pass and have your travel documents validated at the airport. I was in Barcelona, the checkin / baggage drop off does not do the validation, it is done by the sales counter. There were only 2 counters open and 50 people lining up to have their travel documents validated / change their flight. Took me 30 min just to let them confirm I can fly to Poland with my Canadian passport. Overall the ground staff is inefficient"
