Cons: "The seats weren't that comfortable"
Pros: "Some "perk" for Diamond status on Delta to get to a shorter security line, but customs and immigration was... customs and immigration."
Cons: "No available SkyTeam lounge unless you had a business class ticket. As a Diamond flier, I can always access the SkyTeam lounges. Audio for boarding was a little unclear so there was some confusion at boarding. For reasons unknown, my bag was moved from one overhead bin to another. Very frustrating since I board early to avoid this confusion and hassle."

Pros: "Over all the flight was smooth and great"
Cons: "Kayak, the confirmation email that was sent was incorrect, ended up flying delta - had a scare when checking in at the air europa desk and the attendant says "theres no flights to Malaga" - after further investigation from the staff, we found out it was a Delta flight and NOT and air europa flight"

Also I didnt like that i had to stand and wait for 3 hours in the line because my flight was canceled but no one could let us know if there gonna be any flights within the day. I slept in the airport because i couldnt find a hotel to spend the night close to the airport. They were all full and i had no time to find one since I was waiting there for 3 hours with no informational. I slept on the floor and delta didnt even offer us a blanket. That was my worst trip ever."

Pros: "Smooth flight; informative crew"
Pros: "The crew and the flight were all very pleasant. Highly recommended."

Even when it became available however, we were forced to wait while ATC sent every other plain taxiing through our route which was clearly visible from our vantage point. Not an issue with Delta per se but nonetheless it left us all exhausted and frustrated."

Pros: "The organization and speediness shown during boarding the aircraft and the perfect timing on departure"

Cons: "I ordered a special asian vegetarian meal and it was just plain horrible. I had to settle for the cookie. It's nice that they serve a complimentary meal on the red eye flight but the quality of the food was bad. Entertainment options were also limited although they had some recent box office entries from last year. The leg room also wasn't great but that's expected in economy I guess."
Cons: "Entertainment was working, watching movie when they said done didn't have do they were resetting system. They tried twice taking over an hour and it never came back on for anyone..... :("
Pros: "Good movie selection, nice crew"
Cons: "Terrible food, no veg options, no leg room, seats barely recline"

Cons: "Be on time"

Cons: "Poor selection of films on the entertainment system."
Pros: "Crew was friendly and helpful, food was tasty and flight was nice and smooth."
Cons: "It would be wonderful to have all seats the same as first class for a long distance flight."
Cons: "30min late arrival. Still was ok."

Pros: "It was a high quality service hands down."
Cons: "The available entertainment choices were a little limited."
Pros: "Almost every thing was very good"

Cons: "the entertainment was broken, they didn't offer WIFI. the crew was very rude and crabby."
Cons: "it was canceled and i still waiting for refund so i did get ticket on vayama how i get email from kayak"
Pros: "It was a very safe trip"
Cons: "Small space in Economy class"
Cons: "We were almost three hours late on arrival. Being at VIE airport after midnight with no buses going home is no fun."
Cons: "Entertainment options are limited. Austrian flight attendants were quite grumpy on this flight."
Pros: "I received an upgrade to a larger and more comfortable seat. The beverages were good and the staff was terrific."
Cons: "The food quantity was skimpy considering the duration of the flight."
Cons: "Flight was cancelled. Ended up on Swiss Air. Only good thing about Austrian was they booked us on other flights at the check in desk."
Pros: "The plane was comfortable and clean. Internet was offered"
Cons: "The Internet didn't work. Although boarding was good the person making the announcements needs to know she should speak up."
Pros: "I like the food , service and clean airplane."
Pros: "Was on partner airline Austrian Air. Very good service."
Cons: "At Vienna gate G31 it was difficult to hear announcements."
Pros: "The plane was comfortable even in economy. The crew were helpful and professional. Good food."
Cons: "We were boarded and then told we had to sit on the plane for 45 minutes before take off. It's possible this way beyond the crew's control, but still would've been better to wait in the airport. Also, the movie selection was smallish compared to some other airlines."
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"
Cons: "Austrian Air has really slipped in its food-product.. Lufthansa put out snacks (cookies etc; even small sandwiches to 'help yourself from' going from Atlanta to Frankfort which was nice). But not the case with Austrian The serving of it was fine. Restroom options are less than adequate too."
Cons: "Too many customers use more than their fair share of the overhead space. A lot of passengers placed their luggage and their personal item above. This left those of use who use only our fair alottment searching for a place for what we fairly should be allowed to use."
Pros: "The flight attendants were very friendly and spoke English well. Loved the food and the service"
Pros: "I enjoyed the flight along with my girlfriend from beginning to end. The flight attendants were very courteous & the service was fast & the food & drink portions were generous."
Pros: "The crew worked so hard and were always ready to do more for any problem that arose, be it, mothers with babies, the elderly and infirm, the less than gracious occasional passenger, or younger children. The entertaining things on the individual screens also helped make the long periods of sitting more manageable for young and old."
Cons: "I didn't like how the passengers in general, left the cabin of the plane in such a mess! The crew came through several times for refuse, so I couldn't understand. Leaving pillows and blankets should be the only thing to clear out. Maybe a note on the TV screen could say, "a tidy plane helps flights be on time :-)""
Pros: "It was the best flight I've had and the best Pilot. Thank you, Corina Pauta"
Pros: "The flight was good, the food was good, the crew was excellent"

Pros: "The service on board was fantastic. The flight was very smooth."
Pros: "the crew"
Cons: "There was no space. Even though I wore compression socks and got up to walk frequently, my legs were bruised as I could not stretch out for any extended time. The seats are cramped and you are in one position. The flight was almost 9 hours and it was too much for me."
Pros: "Reasonably on time. Food and service were passable."
Cons: "Very old plane, the entertainment system was awful. Wifi did not work at all."
Pros: "The crew were nice."
Cons: "Food & extremely old plane with no electrical outlets no Wi-Fi and the entertainment system was rubbish . The food was terrible. One passenger mentioned that the bathroom was in terrible shape. I actually tidied up the bathroom before I left cause my bathroom was also in terrible shape or getting there. This plane needs to be retired it is so old! United Airlines should be embarrassed! I can't believe this plane is still in circulation at least the inside of it! How about updating it to modern times?"
Pros: "Served a lot of food. Most personnel friendly and helpful. Enjoyed entertainment selections. Plus this flight was $300 cheaper than the others. Convenient times and choice of airports."
Pros: "I liked the service and the polite staff. Timelyness also we liked.I will use united again."
Pros: "The flight was quick, food good, crew friendly. we landet earlier than expected."
Cons: "This was an older plane and even I paid for economy plus, there was no outlet, no on ddemand movies and the seat was not as comfortable as in a newer plane. Very little space in the overhead departments, even for carry on luggage."
Pros: "Everything was fine — but every bit of this flight was managed by United — the aircraft, the crew, the check-in desk — never encountered anything related to Austrian Air the whole time."
Pros: "Flight wasn't overcrowded Attendants were very nice Entertainment system was very good (new screens with easy interface, broad selection of movies and TV shows)"
Cons: "Food and beverages could have been a bit more frequent. One lunch and a small sandwich over a 9 hour flight, I felt hungry at some point"
Cons: "I am charged twice/ one from united and another from Austrian airlines and at this point trying to resolve that. Very disappointing at best. The seat upgrade for $139 was a rip off."
Cons: "Miles and more didn't register my points for the brussels to Vienna leg!"
Pros: "Nothing was overly terrible. The chicken was pretty good. Mostly on time departure and arrival. And smooth boarding / exiting process."
Cons: "Food - pasta was awful, snack was tiny, 9h 30m flight. Should probably have more than a half a sandwich snack. Space - tiny. I am 6' and 190lbs, knees were basically wedged against the seat in front of me. My girlfriend is 5'9" and she was even complaining about space. Entertainment - really limited movie selection."
Pros: "The staff was friendly and the meals were nice. It's crew was trained and the flight was pleasant. The seats were comfortable and the entertainment had lots of options."
Pros: "Was my first time going there,I like most my trip,but um thing I like most was the fact ,they offered water a fill time during the trip,"
Cons: "They toke to long to serve the meal,I tougth,we weren't going to have souper ,but that ok,! Finally it came!"
Cons: "Very nice crew and great food"
Pros: "A flight was delayed due to weather conditions and we had to sit in the plane for almost an hour, BUT information sharing from the Capitan was sufficient and on-time. Very good job from pilots. Leg room in economy - I was positively surprised, very decent leg room! Thank you for providing it."
Cons: "I flew economy and all was good and appropriate to the level."
Pros: "Flight was on time."
Cons: "Staff: from check in to landing, they could at least smile. Baggage claim was a nightmare, 6 Schengen flights in the same belt."

Cons: "Seat pitch could've been more. At least let us know via Whatsapp that the plane is delayed, or at which belt the bags would come out. This basic info was lacking."
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"
Cons: "This was just a short commuter flight from Lyon to Amsterdam for connection."
Pros: "Being fed was amazing and watching free TV was great!"
Cons: "I wish there were personal fans because it got uncomfortably hot sandwiched between people"

Pros: "short, sweet and to the point. 1+ hour flight is usually an easy hop."
Cons: "Landlords gave an unpleasant service! Which continued with late of 50min of the flight, they didn’t do anything to help/ to provide the passengers the answers. The food was cold It was comfort place to sit. Bad experience with KLM"
Pros: "MCR airport Mert & Greet parking was smooth and efficient."
Cons: "Flight was delayed 2 hours due to bad weather. Additional baggage payment to Air Baltic did not show up on the KLM system and we had to pay again. Nowhere to address this with Air Baltic even in Tallin. Handlers seem uninterested and refer us to ‘the website to address the issue.....’"
Pros: "Very pleasant, professional crew"
Cons: "Very slow check in. Mainly because other passengers obviously don't read instructions re: weight/contents of cabin bags etc. Would be helpful if there was additional staff to deal with them away from check in desk. This would mean that others did not have to queue for 25 minutes because the check in girls also had to deal with them"
Pros: "The staff tried to help me when it was evident we would not arrive on time"
Cons: "The connecting flight is too short of a time. We were late out of LAX and I missed my connection and had to sit in airport for 5 hours. Missed my grandson’s third birthday party. Just made me sad as Travelled from far to try to make it."
Pros: "The seat was spacious and the concept of the evening meal being the lighter option was innovative and well thought out"

Cons: "That it didn’t happen."
Pros: "Good services!"
Cons: "Customer service"
Cons: "Boarding was very confusing. There was an area where they were checking people's bags or something near the gate and you didn't know if you needed to stop at it or continue. They didn't collect garbage before landing. Not only did we have to take our bags off the plane, we had to carry our garbage (drink cups/food served) to the front of the plane to throw out."
Cons: "Food and one bathroom out of service makes an awful flight"
Pros: "Good service onboard, good food. On time."
Cons: "Delay can occur sometimes but it wiuld be better to be explained its reason and the estimated time for boarding. The customer service at CDG airport was the worst ever and all people standing boarding desk were useless without any mind what they are doing."
Pros: "Boarding was quick, Flight on time....just a regular service and plane"
Cons: "Terminal 3 Manchester is not worth staying longer then necessary, loud music, crowded....old"
Pros: "The time keeping was very good. We left on time and arrived early on both occasion. Good organisation. Excellent service."
Cons: "I can't take the flight because i'm not Chilean and I don't have a reembolse or other flight ,... nothing . Finally I take other flight with other company"
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: "Boarding was delayed a little due to weather as was takeoff. Cant blame them for weather but the connection was very tight."
Cons: "Bag was lost"
Pros: "In flight food was enjoyable"
Cons: "No proper info regarding cancellation. Staff was unfriendly and abruptly responded to passengers."
Pros: "The flight was very good, specially considering it was a daylight one. Staff was friendly and servicial. Tue food was above the industry's average."
Pros: "From downloading the KLM app to the final touchdown of my final flight, everything was an ease, checking in, the option to change my seat, the service received was great."
Cons: "The ability to state a seat or meal preference within the app would be good but otherwise all was good."
Pros: "Airline staff good and professional"
Cons: "Nothing one can do, for a 6.2" guy, the metal bar that forms the shape for the pouch for magazines and such digs into knees, ESP if person in front adjusts seat back. Fold out table barely accommodates laptop."
Cons: "Long stop over at Schiphol. Too Long!!!!"
Pros: "Jet airways flight till mumbai"
Cons: "Poor legspace in Klm flight till Amsterdam"
Pros: "Overall, my trip to Cardiff via Amsterdam was smooth and delightful. I've flown a few short trips this summer and I was pleasantly surprised to find KLM still offered complimentary snacks. What a refreshing change!"
Cons: "There was no entertainment which is why I assigned that category only one star. The boarding process in Amsterdam could have been a bit smoother. Announcements were no clear."
Cons: "Horrible. First, we lost a suitcase. It could happen but for two days they did nothing and only told us stories (so as not to use the word lies). Within a few hours (and thanks to airline assistance) we were able to locate the suitcase. Even then it took them two days to bring it to us, two precious days off our planned vacation (7 days) At the end of the shortened vacation, we got to the chek in, and told that since the ticket I had purchased form them two months earlier was too cheap ... and since the flight was Over booked, they would take me off the plane if all the passengers would arrive. It's unnecessary to describe what I felt until the plane took off. They apologize constantly, but do nothing practical. a bae company. no me nor my freinds/family will go with KLM"
Pros: "Spacious cabins, friendly service"
Cons: "Airlines had no record of our pets flying with. Missed our flight even though we were there over 3 hours prior. Ruined the last day of vacation. Now we are waiting for the promised help in Amsterdam. No one is here. No one knows anything. Feel like crying"
Cons: "Can’t believe SAS charges for 1 piece of luggage Never experienced in all the years I’ve travelled internationally Also couldn’t accept UScredit card to buy a drink- yes you had to buy an alcoholic beverage on the flight to Europe Better to upgrade your ticket so you can check a bag and use lounge"
Pros: "the diverse amount of films"
Cons: "the food could have been better."
Pros: "Good service"
Cons: "That we had to pay for checked bagage on the return flight (Copenhagen to Newark) was an unpleasant and expensive surprise. In the 25+ years I have flown trans Atlantic with SAS, this is the first time that I’ve had to pay for luggage. No pre-warning .... :-(."
Cons: "When we checked in for the return flight in CPH we learned that our return ticket was “light” ie it did not include luggage. we were not informed about this, we did not request a ‘light” return ticket, and...why would we when we checked luggage flying over? We’d like the usd100 refunded"
Pros: "Crew was amazing. Seat was better then usual."
Cons: "Don’t make us pay for our drinks."
Cons: "Again we had to climb down stairs with our luggage to get to the boarding area, then we had the typical ramp. What is it with Europe and stairs? If you have any issues beware. You better be strong and fit to fly in Europe. Not too many luxuries."
Pros: "The food was amazing"
Cons: "The seats could have more space"
Pros: "Great food, excellent crew, pillow, blanket, water bottle... what more could i ask for?"
Cons: "Mildly annoying advertisements for the in- flight shopping during the movies and overhead"
Pros: "Beautiful airport, nice merchandise and merchants.flights on time."
Cons: "In Copenhagen I left my iphone in the bin during security check. Half an hour later i heard my name on P.A. system. The message was muffled and never repeated. I ran in circles trying to retrieve my phone and I got very poor assistance. I had to be deboarded an boarded again and barely made my flight. I was misinformed several times and ran around the airport with my hand luggage like a chicken without a head. Why wasn’t it brought to my gate? They had my info."
Pros: "SAS handles their business very professionally. Entertainment is great, purchasing seats with extra room is affordable. Reliable service."
Cons: "Seats are extremely uncomfortable, especially for an 8+ hour flight."
Pros: "Business class lounge excellent. People who helped with the wheelchair were excellent."
Cons: "In a wheelchair. Check in was terrible and rude. The fact that SAS did not allow us to bring my electric chair directly to the gate was absurd (only airline in the world that did that). The fact that it was not at the gate when we arrived in Newark surprised even the SAS Gate agents. Had to go to baggage and collect it in oversize baggage. Will not fly SAS again until that policy has changed."
Pros: "The food was great and the staff were excellent."
Cons: "The entertainment selection was limited and there were no live channels - just prerecorded content"
Pros: "flight arrived on time"
Cons: "The food was poor, ventilation system in the cabin terrible. Smell from bathrooms during the whole flight, both ways. SAS lost our luggage and nobody seams to care about it. They know that there is a problem with luggage transfer on connecting flight, but don't bother to do anything about it. Customer service representative is not able to provide any information, doesn't even understand English well. Nobody answers the phone... At this point, we're still waiting for our bags"
Cons: "Rerouted without consultaton - added an extra leg to my trip including a necessary mad dash to catch the make-up flight."
Cons: "Was overlooked by the pursor a couple times - he probably had a lot on his plate. Also, the "snack" at the end of the trip was sorely lacking! Especially for a 7 hour flight. The bathrooms were gross & out of toilet paper. And it seemed like one was locked constantly...?"
Pros: "On time, movies, service staff"
Pros: "Staff efficient."
Cons: "Leg room is tight. No free alcohol. Dinner was very good. Lunch snack was tasteless."
Pros: "Seats were very comfortable for economy. Crew was pleasant, attentive and efficient. Good seatback entertainment system."
Cons: "Once passengers do final passport check and enter secure gate area on this flight to the US, there’s no bathroom available. On the transatlantic flight, no complimentary glass of wine as on other airlines."
Pros: "Good food and a good entertainment system that comes with plenty of options. I really like that SAS doesn’t go for your wallet for every bag like jus about EVERY AMERICAN CARRIER!"
Cons: "Leg room could be more generous but then again I’m 6’3” so it is what it is."
Pros: "The seats were very comfortable -- the plane wasn't very full, so there was room to spread out for some folks. As a vegetarian, the lunch meal was EXCELLENT, thank you. There was a second snack given just before landing that was basically roasted peppers on bread that was not good -- so you know, many vegetarians actually have sensitivity against peppers, so perhaps another vegetable or option would be better there. Crew was very affable and helpful."
Cons: "See point before re: second snack. Our flight was delayed for two hours, presumably due to snow in Oslo. The boarding area was disorganized -- something I remember from flying through Norway a few years ago as well. I also didn't quite understand why I received priority boarding, as a United gold member on my outbound fight, but not on my return. So the inconsistency was a bit confusing/frustrating. But the flight overall was smooth, and the accommodations quite good."
Cons: "The crew passed by me TWICE while serving food and I was not sleeping at that time. I had to go and ask for food myself. Also there was a delay about 40 minutes when taking off in CPH (CPH-EWR) because of a fuel-screen malfunction or smth. The pilot was very nice and kept us informed all the time. I still didn't make my connection flight due to the delay and SAS rebooked me which made my already long trip 8 hrs longer."
Pros: "Really good price, excellent service."
Cons: "A silly point, but I would appreciate fewer announcements when I’m watching a movie. (Laughing out loud)"
Cons: "Expensive rates on luggage"
Cons: "Didn't make connectingflight due to a bomb alert at airport. sAS didntgive any support with either food or hotel. Stuck in Copenhagen for a day and night."
Pros: "Free water bottles, headphones, blankets and pillows for all passengers. Two meals (one full, one small). TVs in chairs. Flight felt roomy. A relatively pleasant experience."
Cons: "No free booze!"
Pros: "I am vegetarian with no egg fish or meat. I didn't get any choices"
Pros: "It was100 % flawless and I recommend the SAS airline to all. The airline staff is great and the food is good."
Cons: "As previously stated, I think the airline should do a better job in answering phone calls. If they do answer the phone (1-800-221-2350), they either put you on hold for a whole day or, if you leave your phone no. and name to have them call you back, they never do . I am not the only person who has this experience. It is too bad because if this continues, the airline will loose business and I would hate to see that. However, I still will use KAYAK"
Pros: "They were very accommodating to alternate diets. All staff were very friendly and helpful"
Pros: "Comfy seats. Good good service. Great video options."
Cons: "SAS staff seems sort of cold and cranky."

Pros: "I flew SAS from ewr to wro and back a d can't say enough good things about the company. The crew was very friendly and always smiling, the flight was quick and arrived early, the plane was very clean aND overall just great experience. Next flight I'll be looking to book with SAS. Thank you Adam Bartosik"
Pros: "The crew"
Cons: "The flight was delayed well over an hour. I was unable to check in the night before. I was finally able to check in online the afternoon of the flight, but no seats were left, so had a boarding pass with no seat assignment. Got to the gate and they sent me and about 25 other folks with no seat assignment to wait for a "colleague" who finally appeared after almost everyone else had boarded. I did get a seat, but I was one of the last to board. They ran out of salmon dinners, so the stewardess plopped a chicken dish in front of me--didn't eat since I am vegetarian. The stewardess did give me a free mini bottle of wine, which is normally free on Lufthansa. I am just not all that impressed with SAS. I will try to avoid them in the future."
Pros: "Good choice of movies."
Cons: "I was seated between two families with two babies on board so there was little room for me to rest since there was a lot of movement."
Pros: "Service, etc."
Cons: "Boarding... the first 20 or so rows were called then "All remaining passengers..." causing considerable pushing, etc. MUST board by sections, etc..."

Pros: "SAS is the best airlines !!"
Pros: "Even though this was an older model plane, the cabin at least did not feel like an oven, which was the case when we flew SAS to Copenhagen."
Cons: "This was a 9 hour flight where if the lights were off, a baby would sleep. Instead, the lights were left on to encourage the purchase of food/drink and airmail knick knacks."
Pros: "The crew was friendly."
Cons: "The crew forgot to start serving the final meal until 40 minutes before we landed which resulted in them nearly throwing food at people so that they could quickly get through the plane and sit again before descent. I was not able to choose my seat and was seated in the back of the plane. Consequently this meant that every parent on the plane with two-year-olds decided that the best place to let them stretch their little legs was back by me. I work with small children so I understand that when they reach that age all they want to do is kick and punch, but I didn't want to end my vacation by having half a dozen two-year-olds punch my leg or try to crawl under my chair as they wandered nearby. I still have bruises."
Pros: "On time and smooth travel."
Cons: "No choice in dinner items."
Pros: "Staff seemed nice. Boarding didn't take too long even when I was selected for a random check."
Cons: "The air conditioning didn't go on until take off. There were no options for food. All alcoholic beverages were not complementary and priced too high. I got sick after eating the meal that was provided. i reserved a seat but at check in the computer assigned me a different seat number. I was flying with a family member and instead of sitting next to them I had to sit next to a stranger."
Pros: "A bottle of water along with the standard pillow and blanket at each seat. Never had a long line for the bathroom (dumb luck?)"
Pros: "Food and movies were great!"
Cons: "Couldn't afford a seat with leg space."
Cons: "I lost my luggage!!!"
Cons: "I was sitting next to a girl who was not part of my family who got airsick 3 times on the flight. The first time I told the airline attendant and she brought a large plastic bag and some paper towels. The girl but her used airsick bag inside the large plastic bag. I tied the top and put in next to me near the aisle because I expected the attendant to come pick it up. The attendant told me I had to take it to the lavatory and dispose of it in there. It was very hard to get the large plastic bag into the small trash receptacle because it had fill with air. I asked the attendant for another airsick bag but she never brought it. The girl got sick again and she used my airsick bag. While walking the bag up to the lavatory, I asked a different attendant for another airsick bag. They just told me I had to dispose of it in the lavatory and never brought another airsick bag. I had to ask someone for their airsick bag because the girl got sick a third time. I can not believe the horrible service on this flight! The poor girl was crying because she felt so sick and there wasn't anyone to help her. I did what I could but I felt something could have been done by the crew. I will think twice before I reserve another flight on SAS."
Pros: "Efficiency, confidence, promptness"
Cons: "The meals were mediocre and should be up to the standard of the rest of SAS service. The selection of movies could have been wider. They do help pass the time."

Pros: "All crew I interacted with was great, friendly, and helpful."
Cons: "Flight was late. Boarding very slow. Entertainment was ok by today's standards. Each seat had a display, but movie selection was not great. For a French airline I was looking forward to breakfast -- maybe some nice pastries or at least a decent croissant with jam. None such. It was disappointing. Meals were not impressive either, but the complimentary wine was good. I did not find the seats comfortable."
Pros: "Nothing..worst experience ever. Simply apologising for delayed doesn't help"

Cons: "It's an a380, stains everywhere, aisles between seats narrow even for business, caos at CDG, no clear queues, ground staff shout at passengers, food selection good but huge gap between describtion and reality, in JFK we waited for 30 minutes cause the docking spot was too narrow for the captain, sky priority?

Pros: "The crew was very nice and helpful."
Cons: "The food was really poor. The chicken was as dry as it can be. The food taste was poor. I flow 3 weeks ago with KLM and the food was pretty good for flight food. In a French company I expect much more. The entertainment system on the airbus a380 was like an enchant IT system from the past. Very poor reaction time. Very messy and not people oriented at all. Especially after KLM's And Delta experience."

Complimentary wine with meal was also quite good. Entertainment system was first rate with plenty of options for TV. movies, music, games, etc..."
Cons: "Sitting in the middle two seats in the center of the 777 left me stuck for most of the flight. Got up only once. Wife's feet and ankles were swollen by the end of the flight.
