Cons: "Everything was great."
Pros: "Crew was great."
Cons: "Boarding could have been better"
Pros: "Flight was "good," not great, nor excellent."
Cons: "Flight was good, not excellent."
Pros: "food is really bad, people are not taking social distancing seriously"
Pros: "Highly professional and nice crew. New airplane."
Cons: "Replace sorry sandwiches with normal food."
Cons: "Turkish food and coffee are amazing"
Cons: "- Boarding took too much time because the airline called all passengers to board, instead of asking to board by their seat zone. - The space between seat is too narrow so I couldn't stretch my legs. - The seats are very old and little bit dirty - The seats were not properly cleaned."
Pros: "Friendly flight attendants"
Cons: "Long layover hours at Istanbul airport . Had to ask for meal voucher at Istanbul airport since the airline does not issue it ."
Pros: "Great movie selection during the flight. Most of the food was decent."
Cons: "The boarding process was a pain in the butt. Even though my boyfriend and I did a pre- check-in online the day before. We still had to wait over an hour to check our one piece of luggage and wait to be checked in and get the boarding pass. Even though the site says we have the option to print out the boarding pass or show the code on our phone, we still had to deal with all the hassle. The plane was smelly until we were about to take off. The first meal on our way back from Istanbul was awful. The omelette was greasy, overly cheesy and bland. Same goes for the spinach pastry in the same tray. On the flights to Cairo, there was not enough drinks served. I only had one beverage offered to me. I was bypassed when they were serving the coffee/ tea. Also, the timeliness with serving drink was bad... I waited about 4 hours before getting my first beverage on the flight home."
Pros: "The food on the airline is good. Entertainment system has many movies to watch. The boarding system from Istanbul is a Nightmare!"
Cons: "Once I asked the air hostess for a sandwich, i was really hungry, she said she would have to walk to back of plane and they would be serving food in 15 minutes. After 45 minutes I went back to ask for a sandwich and handed me a tray of meal and said to eat this."
Pros: "Great good entertainment n crew provided warm and courteous service"
Cons: "Terrible boarding process n the seats are not the best- not bad just not as good as everything else."
Cons: "The stewardess actually I insisted that I do NOT recline my chair during the flight. The chairs are already too small. The person behind me didn’t have any room so I had to place it in the upright position. They ran out of chicken on both flights too"
Pros: "- Friendly crew - Good overall"
Cons: "- Media devices is obsolete with bad barely working touch screens, plus my screen holder was broken - not adjustable. - Old style two-pin audio connectors (making hard to connect your own headphones), it's good that I had an adapter. Though port was malfunctioning anyway and I had to readjust it once in a while or I could not hear anything. - Censored movies, with such censorship it is practically pointless to watch some movies. - Leg room is far from generous (economy class)."
Cons: "I nearly missed my connecting flight because of how poorly organized Ataturk airport is. Disembarking was extremely time consuming; there were few signs instructing connecting passengers where to go; and the employees of the airport were extremely unhelpful and gave conflicting information. I made my flight with only minutes to spare after going through two security and passport checkpoints and sprinting an entire wing of the airport. I will never fly through Ataturk (or anywhere in Turkey) again."
Cons: "They didnt load a special meal (child) that I had requested for my two year old. Luckily we had packed extra food. They returned that car seat all wet at SFO. Didn't even have the decency to put a plastic cover on it. Overall I found the crew lacking any warmth and the service was mediocre at best. The food was below average. Overall highly disappointed. I had assumed that Turkish would be like it's other middle Eastern airlines line Emirates or Qutar but they are not. I would take my business elsewhere"
Pros: "Flight was good"
Cons: "There should be more snacks during the long flight. Only one item was available and it was located in the rear of the plane. It was difficult for senior citizens to avail this service."
Pros: "The best airline to Europe! Period! Boing in the new 777 and has very comfortable seats with plenty of room for your feet even in economy class. Huge number of movies and TV shows. The food is excellent. Only missing part is to have some candies or chocolates for the 13 hour trip for San Francisco to Istanbul. You can not beat their price. Crew is very friendly and helpful at the same time. Slippers and socks they give you in economy class + cotton blanket of course make you feel you are 1st class traveler. What else? You name it and it is there. Will fly again with Turkish airlines."
Pros: "Fantastic onboard entertainment. Lots of current movies and tv shows to watch. Music was available, too. Even a camera under the plane to see what you’re flying over...usually clouds. USB charging, big screens in the headrests, games, remote control with keyboard and game controller, network cable for laptops without Wi-Fi even. The had pillows and blankets on every seat when we arrived and handed out hot towels before the first meal. They also provided a kit with eye mask, toothbrush, cologne, and slippers. Far better than we expected."
Cons: "We were subjected to at least five security checks after our transfer in Istanbul. At the gate they checked our passports and boarding passes five times before boarding, every carry on bag was searched and every person was patted down. We even watched while one man held up his baby for a guard to pat the baby down! This was all after the security we’d received to get to our gate. So, if you left the gate to use the bathroom, you had to go through all the checks again."
Cons: "The Istanbul airport is very large and there are many people. The signage is generally pretty good, but it was confusing getting off the airplane from Berlin and seeing a sign saying something like " foreigners." I waited in that very long line for at least 30 minutes which ate up most of my layover time. Only to find out that it was for people with visas coming into Turley. I was directed to another, poorly marked, line for people transferring planes."
Pros: "Delicious food, amenities kit with socks, slippers, earplugs, toothpaste and more, fantastic entertainment system, power plugs and USB plugs at every seat."
Cons: "The laptop on board ban is a mess. As we were flying to the US, we had to go through literally 4 security checks one after the other. Then, all of our electronics (laptop, camera, even headphones) other than our phones had to be taken. As everyone had to go through it , this delayed our flight by 1 hour. When we landed, we waited literally 1.5h before they started handing out our electronics. All in all, it took me 4 hours to leave the airport."
Pros: "The crew on the plane was kind, accommodating, and polite. Free alcoholic drinks helped with the long list of negatives aspects of the flight."
Cons: "Every flight was 30+ minutes late. Crew members at the gate were consistently on their phones and delayed service substantially. Not only am I incredibly frustrated that I could not bring my laptop onboard to do work, but the fact I wasn't told until right at boarding and it took extensive time to reclaim it makes Turkish airlines on par with Ryan Air for inconveniencing its customers. At baggage claim, the crew loaded our baggage on the incorrect track, making it take even longer to receive it. Seats and leg room are sub par. As someone who is 6'3, when the person in front of me put their seat back, I was forced to take a metal bar on the back of their seat to my knees (no matter the position). I will be recommending to both family and friends that they should avoid this airline at all costs."
Pros: "Price Point."
Cons: "Staff not very Helpful. Really bad security check for USA travelers. Airport security is really out dated, zero technology, not even a metal detector before the gates. They woke up a 15 month baby 3 times for security check. Who does that."
Pros: "As with the departure, everything was smooth for those who had no carry-on laptop"
Cons: "The new carry-on laptop caused a delay of about 1 hr before departure and arrival an hour late, then claiming the laptop was almost a nightmare with long queue after picking up the luggages, one has to also claim their laptops in a make shift station In the baggage claims area. My suggestion is to put the computer laptops in alphabetic order by last name/surname, with the claim ticket,for easier access when picking up. As for departure, probably at check in to inform them that if you have a laptop carry-on so that can be taken care of right away as not to delay departure when they take it at the departing gate. This should be done at check in if in Turkey, or as a transferring traveler, to inform the traveler to take care of that as soon as arrived to transferring destination and for the traveler not to wait until boarding time at the boarding gate."
Pros: "Cabin crew was pleasant."
Cons: "Vegetarian meal was mediocre. Seats were extremely crowded. Person in middle seat was large, causing over-crowding because he required more than his seat. I didn't check out the entertainment, as I didn't know how to use the electronics."
Pros: "Price, service."
Cons: "Can not take a laptop or Kindle on board (no fault of Turkish Airlines, but still an option available when flying from other places to the US)."
Pros: "Better than average in flight service. Excellent in flight entertainment"
Cons: "Poor customer service. What the Turkish airliines claims to provide for passengers with long stopover (free tour etc.) on its web site did not happen. We got inconsistent and not helpful information from different Turkish representatives. Tight seat configurations. Uncomfortable for a 12+ hour flight."
Pros: "The customer service and attention to detail was a nice surprise. I would definitely fly with Turkish Airlines again."
Cons: "The space between the rows was very limited. I have short legs so it wasn't a problem for me, but my companion had her knees shoved into the back of the seat in front of her for the whole 13 hour flight. Not so good."
Pros: "Good entertainment options, and they keep you well fed with their snacks."
Cons: "The plane departed 2+ hours late, and offered no free internet so we could tell our families that we would be late. They also didn't apologize or offered vouchers for the delay."
Pros: "Comfortable flight, friendly flight attendants, food, usb port to charge my phone, and the in-flight entertainment"
Pros: "Good food and courteous service."
Cons: "I was crowded in amongst a family who decided to camp in my row of 3 seats. (Literally, on the floor.) I could not move because I needed the bulkhead and aisle seat to stretch my legs. I am a Diabetic and needed it for circulation. I did not say anything but, the stewardess should have made one of the people go back to their seat as he was wedged near the window and sitting on the floor. It made my 13.25 hours trip very uncomfortable. They had a child with them so, I didn't wish to complain while on board."
Pros: "The flight itself was great and the crew was wonderful"
Cons: "Due to the laptop ban, the boarding and un-boarding process was brutal. We had to stand in line for an hour and a half just to hand over our laptops, where for some reason they decided to have only 2 people handling the process which created a huge line. The flight was 1:30 late and as we landed, there was no method to the delivery of the laptops to people. I had to wait almost 2 hours to get my laptop. Again, they only had 2-3 people handling the distribution of the laptops. I understand the security issue, but this issue was known for weeks now and there is no reason not to have enough people on the ground to take care of the boarding and distribution of electronic devices to at least make this an easier experience. There is no excuse for such poor preparation and service."
Pros: "I got extremely sick on the flight from Istanbul to San Francisco. I now know I caught a stomach bug which hit me on the flights from Cape Town to Istanbul and then even worse from Istanbul to San Francisco. The flight from Istanbul was delayed by two hours due to customs delay for a passenger, as such there was a lot of recycled air. Take that and fact I'm pregnant and by time i started the 13 hour journey already felt sick. I started throwing up immediately and got sick 12 more times. the flight attendants brought me crackers, water and a cold towel and ice. My husband asked if he could pay to put me in business class but was not in airline policy. but i think given how sick and pregnant i was the flight attendant went to ask the captain if there was anything they could do to assist. they ended up moving me to business class to lie down and let me stay there for 3 hours. I got sick upon moving back but getting that rest really helped me. I felt like they genuinely cared about me and am so thankful to the two flight attendants who assisted: 1) Zumrat Bolukbas 2) Hatice (Cabin Chief) These women are amazing!"
Cons: "the 2 hour flight delay on tarmac."
Pros: "Flights attendants were really nice, USB ports on all seats, great selection of free movies and other entertainment, very good vegetarian food."
Cons: "Boarding took a long time in Istanbul and could have been handled better. A second inspection was setup At the gate to checks passports, inspect carry-on bags for laptops and iPads, and a pat-down. we were late taking off, the plane was really full, and the cushions on the seats were off a bit. Seems like the plane was cleaned quickly and not put back together carefully."
Pros: "This was my first flight with Turskis Airlines and my best experience with flying to Europe. The food was excellent; we had two hot delicious meals (best airplane food I ever had). The crew was the best - professional yet friendly. TA airfares are cheaper than other airlines so I could spend one day in Istanbul. That alone is worth it!"
Pros: "Enough room to spread out; excellent entertainment choices; ability to charge phone easily; wifi"
Cons: "The boarding took too long, cabin service on the return flight was a lot poorer than I received on the initial flight. It questions my quality recommendation to other people."
Pros: "Took Turkish Airline from New Delhi to San Francisco. The flight is at 6:55am from New Delhi, so a little early start - but the connection in Istanbul is excellently timed. The aircrafts were 777-300ER on both legs, and rather new. The entertainment is great and the TV screens are 11inches. Could not complain at all. Food is fine, standard fare, and there are some snacks available through entire flight. Istanbul is a reasonable airport for a short connection. Turkish allows 2 bags of 50lbs free - yet another reason to take it along with the reasonable fares."
Cons: "The luggage delivery at SFO took forever! The flight landed at 4:36pm and I got my luggage at 5:40pm. This is something I have noticed on Turkish Airlines multiple times. They really need to work on their luggage workflow."
Pros: "The whole experience was great. After an excellent meal which included drinks before and an excellent wine selection the flt attendants came through and made up a bed for you. This included a cover for the seat, a blanket and a big pillow. As opposed to United where you have to stick your feet in a little cubby the Turkish plane has just an open bench which opens to provide storage and gives ample foot room. I have never slept so much on a flt. Also he bathrooms are much more spacious than others."
Cons: "Really nothing."
Cons: "They cancelled my flight days before leaving the country or origin, leaving me incredibly inconvenienced."
Cons: "I have never had a worse experience with booking travel and I vow to avoid Kayak and any related services. This has been truly one of the most terrible travel experiences. The flights were changed (not a big deal) and I was told I was due a refund. After three 1-1.5 hour calls no such refund has come and both agencies says the other is due to provide. I am furious and will never use Kayak or Justfly again."
Pros: "There was upgrade special on our outbound flight at check in which we took advantage of so we were in business class flight from SFO to Istanbul. That was awesome experience - very comfortable fully reclining seats, gourmet food and drinks, impeccable service, wide entertainment selection, etc. Even on the shorter leg flights we took (i.e. Istanbul to Rome and Dubrovnik to Istanbul) they served food (light snack). We flew economy from Istanbul back to SFO but got exit row seats so plenty of leg room and seats reclined good amount. Again, great service, food and entertainment. All the flights we had on our itinerary were newer planes. Turkish Airlines is so much better than American airlines!"
Pros: "Friendly, polite and very helpful staff. Clean aircraft.on time best customer service."
Cons: "Nothing negative. Keep up good work!"
Pros: "The entire trip was very good when though it was very long due to the stop over in turkey. The flight was very good ( business class). Service and food was outstanding. The seats were good. Laying down was still a bit tight due to the armrests remaining in the same position. The crew was extremely nice and always helpful. The Turkish Air lounge on Istanbul is great and makes the united lounge in SFO look like a soup kitchen. I would fly Turkish air again."
Pros: "Great entertainment selection."
Cons: "The cabin was too warm--i was sweating for a good part of the flight. I'm a taller person and felt the seats were uncomfortable--especially when the person in front of me was reclined. It made it nearly impossible to get any sleep."
Pros: "My husband and I had a very average experience overall. From boarding to inflight customer service."
Cons: "We did not plan to check in any luggage since we had few connections, so we decide to take our rimowa luggage with us. So we were forced to check them in because it was only 8kg allow per passenger on carry on. So our luggage end up full of big dents, and scratches. We reported to the airlines and it was hard to justify what we were complaining about it. As a consumer were are very unsatisfied and unhappy. One of the worst experience in hospitality I have ever experience."
Pros: "Food was tasty. See other notes about dessert."
Cons: "Very little legroom. When the person in front of my reclined, I wasn't even able to open my tray all the way to eat. Flight was delayed for takeoff, that wasn't the airline's fault (air traffic) so that didn't factor in my review. Although the food is generally tasty, the dessert could be upgraded. I flew on 4 Turkish Airline flights this year and have never finished a dessert as I've not liked any of them. The bathrooms should be cleaned mid-flight for a 13 hour flight. It started out great but towards the middle of the flight, the bathrooms got really disgusting."
Pros: "Lots do watch/do on the console. Smooth flight. Responsive staff when available."
Cons: "Perhaps because of Istanbul security measures, but all water removed before boarding plane, with no chance to get more. Stewards couldn't give out bottles of water, only those little cups from time to time. They could bring more of those little cups when you called for them, but not during turbulence. So having no access to water was not great (or planned out on their part). Also, no random sweeps of the aisle by the stewardess from time to time, to check on comfort. My seat kept being pushed by passenger behind me. Flight into Istanbul two weeks prior was great all around. This knee was filled with too many negative moments."
Pros: "Friendly and professional crew. Good food."
Cons: "Boarding was stressful because of the extra security check point for us destinations."
Pros: "Entertainment was good, there was a wide variety of movies, music and TV shows to keep passengers entertained. Seats were comfortable enough."
Cons: "I was really disappointed with Turkish airlines this time. When we first boarded, I informed the flight attendant that I had hurt my back just 20 min ago and if it was possible to change seats (since it was hard for me to move with 2 people sitting next to me) after boarding was complete. She was nice enough by offering me ice, and said that once I hear the announcement ''boarding complete'' I can get up and look for a more comfortable seat. When I did that she asked me to go back to my seat immediately without letting me speak, and not once during the 13hr 30 min flight did she come to check if I needed anything. Food was served twice, a 13hr 30 min flight and food was served twice. It was almost impossible to call flight attendants if you needed water, coffee or was starving..they were always in a hurry and a little rude. Definitely going with Emirates next time, the service there doesn't even compare!"
Pros: "Though departure was delayed, arrived at destination on time!"
Cons: "Entertainment options"
Cons: "Purchased food on board. Dry and unappealing."
Cons: "Over a month ago I requested a seat with extra leg room due to a documented medical condition. My request was not granted and I was in pain most of the flight."
Pros: "Great crew, early arrival"
Cons: "Old screens, snacks getting smaller, too much ice in the drinks"
Cons: "Bag drop agent was not helpful."
Pros: "Nice on board crew."
Cons: "More arm & leg room in basic seating. Tray tables are flimsy and seem worn."
Pros: "I liked the choices of movies"
Cons: "The seats were dirty and the snack choices are not healthy at all."
Pros: "The staff was very nice and helpful with prechecking my bag at the gate."
Cons: "Food / snack choices are unhealthy and limited. The cabin was not clean when I got to my seat. There was trash in my pocket and crumbs on the ground."
Pros: "The crew was excellent."
Pros: "Great crew, easy process overall"
Cons: "Make 1st class cheaper and give free wifi!"
Pros: "Seat comfort"
Cons: "Lot of turbulence. Provided videos/entertainment without providing headphones"
Pros: "Great crew, snacks, comfortable flight."
Cons: "Can't tell how the flight was because missed connecting flight from LAX to SJC because Westjet from YYZ to LAX had a mechanical issue. They end up replacing a tire which caused a 1.5 hr flight delay"
Cons: "Not delay the flight for 3+ hours"
Pros: "The seats were very comfortable even though legroom was limited in the basic cabin."
Pros: "Good seating, great food, good service."
Pros: "Good crew."
Cons: "Very tight spaces. No tv."
Pros: "Comfy seats, quick service."
Cons: "If you are in Zone 3 or 4 you pretty much have to check in your bag back there is no more room. Which I don’t understand and is highly incovienent."
Pros: "Service by the Delta team"
Cons: "Seats not roomy enough"
Pros: "great service, easy to get on and off, snack options and drinks were all great"
Cons: "Put me on an Aeromexico plane without a seat. When I went to get seat assignments she gave me very last seat with a “window” she said. There was no window. I was absolutely closterphobic"
Pros: "Service; security gate in NY close to departure gate."
Cons: "Arrival Gate in San Jose far from exit."
Cons: "Not much food offered on a long flight."
Pros: "Everything ran smoothly on this flight. No delays before, pleasant staff, great entertainment selection, okay food options, working equipment (e.g., tv in the headrest worked, seatbelts worked, lavatories were operational, etc.). This flight met all my expectations"
Cons: "The only hiccup was the wait time on the runway before take off. Not sure if that was the airport’s fault or the airline’s fault. We must have waited 45 minutes."
Pros: "I was traveling alone with my (cranky) infant son and the crew members were kind and accommodating. Though the flight was delayed by almost 2 hours, the crew worked quickly to ready the replacement plane and the pilot made up time and got us to San Jose as quickly and safely as possible."
Cons: "The original plane had mechanical issues, which caused an almost two hour delay while waiting for a replacement plane to arrive. Since I was traveling alone with my young son, after an already long previous flight, it made for a more difficult trip."
Cons: "Sat by the exit seat so the door was a bit more chilly. No food. Small entertainment screens with audio bleed through."
Cons: "It’s was the best flight in my life"
Cons: "Was in seat 16A and got bumped to 12E. If you know Delta aircraft, that's exit row window, for the EC (more legroom) but middle. The problem is that nothing can compete with the exit row for leg room and being crammed between two guys isn't an upgrade either. Plus, due to proximity, got sick. And the flight was delayed leaving - due to the late arrival from ATL (Delta HQ) which had a power outage. And no video entertainment. No meals."
Cons: "My flight got cancel two days in a row due to outrage power in atlanta."
Pros: "As always, the crew and amenities were first rate."
Cons: "We were initially told that our flight would arrive early. Then we sat on the tarmac for a half hour before anyone could be bothered to tell us we were waiting for the plane to be de-iced."
Pros: "On time arrival"
Cons: "Small aircraft. Loud engine noise. Biased treatment for tickets booked on non Delta sites"
Pros: "No vegetarian options in first class.. and go go wouldn5 hook up. Flight was an hour late...but that was ok."
Cons: "The pilot did a nice job of flying in and banking so we could see the view.."
Cons: "They delayed the flight for 11 hours and did let anyone know until after 4 hours of waiting and then the gate number for the new flight was wrong"
Cons: "Seat, did not get upgraded"
Pros: "Fast and comfortable"
Cons: "No tv but understanding"
Pros: "Crew was curious and quick to think of alternative solutions."
Cons: "The flight was way too hot. They didn't have enough A/C and we were all sweating up a storm on the flight. The flight was also scheduled to leave 15 min early, but we ended up leaving 15 minutes late, it was odd. One of the bathrooms was out of order too."
Pros: "The flight was very on-time and it reached the destination even earlier than expected."
Pros: "I will know more on my flight back to my destination!"
Pros: "Hassle free left on time arrived early San Jose nice airport and drive to red wood city picturesque Staff friendly and cookies great"
Cons: "On this occasion I actually enjoyed it all"
Pros: "Flight was smooth and leg room great"
Cons: "A flight of four hours should have decent food. Too short connection times and inconsistent restaurants in the airports often leave me very hungry. Give us real healthy food onboard."
Pros: "The turkey sabdwhich was tasty. Good movies."
Cons: "Telling me the doors were going to close & I couldn't use the restroom prior to boarding. Here I was starving from flight delays. In reality the door stayed open another 15 mins & people boarded with their to go food."
Cons: "No trash bag in my seat for puking or bubblegum"
Pros: "Comfortable plane"
Cons: "Travelled with some guys straight out of the Hangover movies. Going to Vegas for a Bachelor party and ogling and making comments on the flight attendant and other passengers! Nothing delta can do about that, It's part of life..."
Pros: "We didnt have food or entertainment because the flight was short."
Cons: "There was nothing that I didn't like."
Cons: "Poor leg room compared to jet blue"
Pros: "Comfortable seating and clean interior. Flight attendants are helpful and courteous."
Cons: "Flight takeoff delayed one hour. Boarding has zoning, but with no structural boarding process, resulted some later zoning customers blocking earlier zoning customers in a single line. Suggest using multiple labeled queue lines, like southwest."
Pros: "Got an upgrade to Comfort + Delta is the best major airline in USA for sure"
Cons: "I had paid for an upgrade to sit in the front of the cabin with extra legroom (row 14A). When I boarded a man sat it my seat. He had not paid for the upgrade, but the crew let him stay in my seat. I had asked him to social distance but he continued to sit right behind me bo matter which seat I moved to. He argued with the crew until they gave up and let him stay. They did not check his boarding pass or ask him to move to his assigned seat I found a different seat away from him but I don’t see the point in paying for extra legroom when the crew let’s people who haven’t paid for it sit it those seats. I felt harassed by the man and was very uncomfortable the whole flight. I am considering my next step, I think I should at least receive a refund for the upgrade I paid for."
Pros: "Overall a nice and good flight"
Cons: "Just a detail, my “head holder” (not too sure how it is called) would not hold in position. Also, staff was a bit slow to come after being called, I had to go and ask for water by myself at some point since no one was coming after 15minites of waiting..."
Cons: "Nothing. Flight was amazing"
Pros: "Crew is excellent, polite and personal!"
Cons: "Plane is super old and outdated. Comfort seat is not, comfortable, very tight. TV screen is not good quality, with the old controls on a handset. No touch, no 1/8 inch audio jack (it has the old 3 holes one). Wifi for streaming freezes every other second. Just make a face lift to the plane, everything else is good."
Cons: "The only complaint I had was that it was very warm on the flight (and I usually get cold on flights), and in the seats we had there weren't fans above the seats. A few rows up they had fans, so apparently you have to pay extra for air... This wouldn't be a big deal on a short domestic flight, but for an international flight it was a long time to be uncomfortable!"
Pros: "The crew tried to be helpful but were equally frustrated with the ground crew."
Cons: "Follow your own policies. Allow people to board (economy plus) with their hand luggage who have followed all the rules and chosen a seat in the front of the plane. My daughter and my KLM approved baggage were taken by the boarding crew while allowing other passengers to go with more than allowed"
Pros: "Pleasant crew. Appropriate and efficiently served snack."
Cons: "Boarding and disembarkation were slow."
Pros: "the crew was wonderful, we got a nice Wrap and water, wine or coffee for free, not all airlines serve it anymore, we were on time and I got whatsapp message with updates of the flight"
Pros: "The aircraft"
Cons: "No overbooking next time!"
Cons: "I congratulate the KLM crew!"
Pros: "Crew was great, very responsive and hospitable!"
Cons: "more lunch choices, especially choices without dairy products."
Pros: "Crew was nice and pleasant"
Cons: "Flight very late"
Pros: "Pleasant flight"
Cons: "We were delayed & missed our connection"
Pros: "The crew was attentive and the seat at economy comfort was comfortable at the “ok” level. It needs much mor3 to be super comfortable. The plug for the headphones was a mess! It was NOT possible to watch a movie and hear the sound too! I gave up! Not a great offering for the extra dollars..."
Cons: "So many things! Starting with the way assistance in the airport is offered to travellers with mobility issues! This is an important issue that needs to be revisited and changes for better service to be made!"
Pros: "KLM staff is great"
Pros: "On time and friendly crew"
Cons: "Boarding needs improvement"
Cons: "Faultless handling of weather delay, causing missed connection and flight transfer. A well oiled machine, thank you."
Pros: "Good food, friendly service"
Cons: "More trash pickup; only one round of beverage service"
Cons: "Poor food, flight attend and finally baggage missing. Overall experience is extremely bad."
Pros: "Friendly hostesses"
Cons: "Flight was delayed 3 hours"
Pros: "Restrooms clean, decent food and drink, nice cabin crew."
Cons: "No complaints"
Pros: "Crew was great, very nice"
Cons: "Not enough legroom"
Cons: "Food had only vegetarian choices. No charging place and ambiance was noisy"
Pros: "The crew was fantastic! Our needs were constantly being met and just about the time you thought you might want a snack or a meal, the attendants were already heading down the aisle. Because of an allergic reaction, I asked for ice a number of times and the attendants were more than happy to meet my needs."
Cons: "The seats were very close together. The trip from New York to Amsterdam seemed a lot more comfortable than the return flight. The food from NYC JFK was better than the food from Amsterdam. The movie selection on both flights was a little disappointing."
Pros: "The boarding was easy and you didn't have to wait inline for that long"
Cons: "KLM needs to upgrade the entertainment. It was very hard to see the images on the screen. The planes that KLM uses are old and they sure need to be upgraded."
Pros: "Food was just fine, movie selection very good"
Cons: "Uncomfortable seat cushions, lights were truned on too early (1.5 hours before flight landed)"
Pros: "crew were absolutely delightful, full of smiles and doing everything to make you comfortable. seats were fine enough and got some work done and a bit of sleep. first lunch was fresh and tasty, but the second, a burger, was edible, but not much more."
Cons: "tv screens are dated so movies are not as crisp as you find in newer planes. you need a 2 prong audio adapter to use your own headphones."
Pros: "Friendly staff, good service and on time departure/arrival."
Pros: "Absolutely nothing!"
Cons: "the connection flights was the worse! The gate was changed in Amsterdam 3 times! From D82 to C6 and then to C11. The distance between B82 and C was 20-30 minutes walk. No rushing was needed though, the flight was delayed for 1:30h and after we all boarded a further delay was announced. I will never fly with KLM."
Cons: "Bit cramped for space"
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: "Decent seat size. Sorta slept the whole flight."
Cons: "Crowded seating, wake-up for breakfast service two hours before arrival"
Pros: "The crew came to get me from the arrival gate to get to the departure gate since our plane was delayed. It helped to know that the airline was checking to make sure we made the flight."
Cons: "I did not get my luggage in Nairobi. The delayed flight that was the most likely reason it did not get to the connecting flight to Nairobi."
Pros: "Excellent experience with the cabin crew."
Cons: "Seats on the 777 were too narrow. This 777 had a 3-4-3 seating arraignment, it would have been better with a 3-3-3, similar to a 787 configuration. With the current layout, even with an aisle seat, I was sitting in the aisle. And I am not a large person! The flight was full, so use the 787 and two daily non-stops. For a twelve hour flight, the food was only Okay, could have been better and with a better selection. Meal timing was poor."
Pros: "The flight was great."
Pros: "Thankful for coffee being served without charge. Not all airlines do that."
Pros: "Professional, welcoming and very friendly crew, well-maintained aircraft, comfortable seat and good food. Keep up the good work, KLM."
Cons: "Not much to comment on here."
Cons: "Flight was delayed 8 hours. Arriving at Incheon, discovered ground crew were unaware of our arrival to take this connecting flight. However, we were put up overnight in a hotel, which was nice."
Pros: "It was so easy to board and I had no inconvenience. It took 4 minutes from when I said goodbye to my family till when I was at the front of the gate."
Cons: "Nothing! It was all great!"
Pros: "The staff was fast and curteous."
Cons: "There is not anything to complain about besides the usual discomfort of travel."
Pros: "The staff were friendly and all smiles. Seats were comfortable and we had a quick, smooth flight from Edinburgh to Amsterdam. The breakfast supplied was an egg and mayonnaise sandwich plus a drink, which seemed about right and very Dutch in character."
Cons: "It was rainy and necessary to walk outside to access the plane; the staff should give their customers a heads-up so that jackets can be donned. Additionally, the check-in queue seemed rather sluggish."
Pros: "Efficiency and speed of boarding was acceptable. I have no complaints about that aspect. The Comfort+ seats were worth the upgrade, pretty comfortable and reasonable legroom unless you have a big carry on stowed under the seat in front of you."
Cons: "The first announcement they made to all of us in the economy section was thay they did not have any headphones for anyone but business class. I was told when I booked the seat that the headphones would be complementary. So I did not bother to bring any assuming they were going to keep their word; I figure I'd make it work and watch a movie without sound. If that isn't bad enough midway through my nine hour flight my monitor went out and would not turn back on."
Pros: "The cabin crew were fantastic and funny"
Cons: "Tiny seats"
Pros: "Boarding was very efficient."
Cons: "Limited movie selection. Crew seemed stressed. Gave me wrong meal and then swaped for the right one. I asked for Diet Coke and was given white wine. Food quality was not good."
Pros: "Friendliest economy class service I've ever encountered."
Cons: "I requested low fat meals. The first one, was OK. But they forgot my request for the second one."
Pros: "Food and drink service"
Cons: "Boarding pass facility"
Did not like anything about the flight Did not get economy plus that I paid for
Pros: "Plane is clean and comfortable. Boarding was great."
Cons: "Staff was lacy and rude to another customer. She told the passenger she wasn’t walking to the back of the plane to get her a paper cup."
Pros: "Crew was great. Flight was clean."
Cons: "I ordered vegan meals and only one of the meals were vegan. Someone had forgotten to bring the second meal for me on the plane."
Pros: "comfortable plane"
Cons: "small pastry with coffee"
Pros: "SAS is excellent in terms of comfort and professionalism and care from the crew."
Pros: "Friendly crew. Good food. Uneventful flight."
Cons: "Flight was slightly delayed in departure."
Cons: "Requested a window seat, got a middle seat. No food, ither than coffee or tea had to pay for everything. Late departure, nearly missed my connecting flight."
Cons: "Seats weren't that comfortable."
Pros: "Safe polite crew"
Cons: "No entertainment options on plane. Possibly due to 737maxs being taken out of service."
Pros: "Crew was good. Flight was delayed by incoming flight from Oslo so I was anxious that I might miss my connection in Oslo. Flight attendants announced connection gates for transit which was very helpful."
Cons: "Perhaps a little more communication about delayed flights. Even though passengers were asked to let connecting passengers through at disembarking, it was still very difficult. Perhaps back stairs to the plane as well as front would have helped."
Pros: "On time"
Pros: "Crew and food were amazing!"
Pros: "Crew was great, seats in economy plus were comfortable. Arrival was 15 minutes early to Los Angeles."
Cons: "Check in took a long time at Stockholm. Waiting area to board was very small and crowded."
Pros: "Great flight = short so food was not expected"
Cons: "all goood"
Pros: "The food and entertainment on board is great. I was very pleased with how they organized the checking of bags and the fact I picked it up at my final destination without any issues and right on time."
Cons: "Some of the staff at the check in desks can be very rude. Also, on my initial flight, they closed the check-in early and left many of us stranded without knowing who to talk to and how to manage to get on the plane. When someone from SAS finally came, I was told I would be escorted through security and most into the plane but then the "manager" or whoever was in charge denied it. The plane did not leave for another our and instead of arguing with the costumers they could have just helped us get on the plane. It was unfair of them to close the check in desks early and on top of that to catch a plane the next day they wanted to charge and exorbitant fee. I Wii never fly SAS again."
Pros: "Nice interior and good IFE on long haul."
Cons: "I did not like the flight from Malaga to Stockholm due to not having IFE or WiFi on a 4+ hour flight. Absolutely unacceptable in today’s travel market."
Cons: "Tried to call sas , no phone answered after 730 in Copenhagen, forced to buy my own ticket to leave early am as their incompetent sas transfer desk couldn’t find me a flight in am yet I was able on kayak.com. They refused to pay for it."
Pros: "Excellent staff!"
Cons: "All airplanes are 2 Noisy. (Of course this is not the fault of SAS). I use noise canceling headphones that helps a lot. EBut the background noise level always strikes me as too much!"
Pros: "Entertainment options"
Cons: "Super hot throughout flight. Had a 9 hour layover and the flight arrived after the gates closed so the only options for 12am-5am were wooden benches in random sketchy areas. Had to wait in line to wait to get in line to finally board the plane The food was two rolls ups three hours apart"
Pros: "Nice planes with all the basics you need"
Cons: "Terrible food"
Pros: "My first time flying SAS on my trip to Europe from USA and I was highly impressed. Everything was efficient and comfortable. One of the highlights was the check in - this is often a long and frustrating process, however this could not have been easier and so quick. I was very happy and made my entire check in experience simple and efficient. I will be going straight to SAS for my next trip to Europe, no question. Thank you very much!!! Daniel Valewink"
Pros: "Liked 2+4+2 seating"
Cons: "When passengers in front of us kept their seats reclined the entire trip, couldn't move, difficult to get in or out of seats. Had to ask flight attendants to ask them to raise seats, at least during meal service. Food was worst of any international flight we've been on and we fly internationally several times a year. Very poor selection of movies and map was not working this flight."
Pros: "Comfortable seats and attentive crew!"
Cons: "Old movies not up to date."
Pros: "The crew was fine. Got there on time."
Cons: "We arrived early to airport and we could not check in till 1hr before flight with the rest of the 200plus passengers. So waited in line with heavy bags just unnesccessary! Then get thru security and nowhere to sit for flight. But have shopping!!! Omg who needs to shop we want to sit and get food!!!! Not stand and fight to get food because your airline gives no snacks or drinks!! It's like entering prison for 2hrs"
Cons: "Crew was rude. The bathrooms became disgusting halfway thru the foight w no toilet paper. For 6 hours we were down to one bathroom in coach. Unacceptable. My daughter never got her final meal and the flight attendant was rude when I asked her about it and never returned w food. Never fly SAS"
Pros: "Plane was clean, flight staff was friendly."
Cons: "No problems!"
Cons: "Cattle call boarding in a culture where standing in que is unheard of."
Pros: "Friendly service, good movies. Easy flight, arrived early."
Cons: "Being served two versions of a ham and cheese wrap in a row. Variety would have been nice."
Pros: "The boarding was more organized than our other flights with this airline. Cabin crew was friendly."
Cons: "The food was not so good. It looked like they were really trying to cut corners with very small portions."
Pros: "One included checked bag"
Cons: "We were being charged for bottled water and soda"
Pros: "Courteous staff, great food, CLEAN airplane, spacious seats. Zero complaints and WAY better than any domestic airlines (United, Delta, American) based on personal experience!"
Cons: "In toilets there was no paper"
Pros: "nothing exceptional but the attendant did give us some water for free."
Cons: "This is a non frills flight and that was expected but I NEVER expected to pay for bags to be checked on an international flight. 66 Euro per bag. It was the first time I had paid for checked bags on an international flight. I will look elsewhere next time."
Cons: "Unfortunately we had to postpone our trip due to a family crisis. I called in an attempt to receive a voucher or some credit. I was advised that a change was possible, but that with penalties and taxes, it would amount to MORE than the price of the ticket. Hell of a way to run a railroad!....speaking of railroads, that gives me an idea for when we reschedule!!"
Pros: "Crew was very friendly, food was amazing. SAS plus is the way to go. Bigger seats, very comfortable for a ten hour flight."
Pros: "Everyone was friendly and helpful."
Cons: "Would have liked more options for Movies."
Pros: "The crew was knowledgeable, gracious and helpful for the entire flight. I enjoyed the mapping and camera feature of the plane. The selection of options for entertainment was a delight."
Cons: "How do you say to close for comfort but then one gets what one pays for and the economics are understandable yet I did not care for the cramped space provided."
Pros: "I would have like to have more options and live news an sporting activities on the flight."
Cons: "Unfriendly and rude desk help. Rude and insulting. United was a real disappointment. I will ask my travel agent to be in touch re screw up the economy plus seats. I had to pay extra for what our itinerant said had been booked. Mary, at the desk at C12 in Delles, she wouldn't give me her last name was unbelievably insulting and unhelpful."
Pros: "Nice crew"
Cons: "The flight is very noise they never turn off the lights and close the windows so it's very hard to try to sleep."
Cons: "Food was of poor quality, one free soda on a 8.5 hr flight."
Pros: "Reasonable price"
Cons: "Very hot, small seats"
Pros: "It flew"
Cons: "The effort put in to work with change of plans"
Pros: "The plane was new, great seats and staff"
Cons: "Delayed flights, microphone is too fuzzy, hard to understand. Also why couldn't we get 2 or more sodas.. Crazy! The Asian airlines beat you! Very expensive stuff like a small red bottle of wine was like almost $15! Nuts... Very disappointed.. It should be free for the money we pay! Also staff just let people leave their windows open which was crazy coz most passengers are tired from other trips and of course in Europe you can hardly see anyone letting the elderly and children have any first priority boarding or let alone line up. I had my disabled husband and a young active little grandchild... Cathay Pacific, PAL,KAL, CAL are great about priority boarding for the elderly and children. Its sad your company do not have compassion or empathy for families with little children and the elderly population.. They really suffer!"
Pros: "I wish there were more snacks during flight."
Cons: "We were to fly from Bergen to Oslo, and then from Oslo to Stockholm. However, the flight from Bergen to Oslo kept getting delayed, so we were eventually put on a direct flight to Stockholm from Bergen. But for the 5 hour delay, we were given a food 'dinner' coupon that could have only bought a slice a pizza which we felt was extremely poor. Expected a better compensation for the long delay."
Pros: "Lots of movie to chose from. Chicken Curry was tasty."
Cons: "The person in front of me put the seat back so far that I had almost no room to get up—then glared at me when I had to pull on the seat back to get out."
Cons: "Crew service is very poor Flight cleanliness was poor Food served was very low quality Inflight entertainment was very basic"
Pros: "The biz class seat and bed"
Cons: "The olives in the salad."
Some drinks and basic snack will be good. Water should be served at least once an hour. Blankets for folks who might be cold.
Pros: "My seat cushion was out of alignment so not great. But I like the two side seat configuration."
Cons: "Boarding is a zoo. Board by row. It’s faster."
Pros: "The crew was friendly, the planes clean, flights on time. The blankets were a very nice touch."
Cons: "On my first flight, I paid for use of wifi, but it kept kicking me off the connection. Repeatedly, the entire time. On the second flight, there was no option for wifi at all. It would have been nice to pay for wifi once for use all the way to my destination."
Pros: "Seats not that good need softer seates for long haul flights"
Cons: "Dissapointed that my flight info screen does not rotate and update the screenshots like they used"
Cons: "They need to start checking in people earlier and have more people."
Cons: "The boarding had no organization what so ever. No food service either."
Cons: "If my entertainment screen would have worked."
Pros: "Only use this airline if you are just flying to Iceland or taking advantage of their stopover in Iceland option. Otherwise choose another airline."
Cons: "Serve food like most transatlantic carriers-bringing Subway Sandwiches or paying large fees for Pringle’s potato chips is beyond greedy for an airline these days. If Icelandair is that desperate for profit it makes one wonder where else they cut corners."
Cons: "Please offer more gluten free food options. Thanks!"
Pros: "Wait, what? Which flight did I review? You asked me about my flight to Minneapolis, but now you’re asking about Copenhagen to Reykjavik? Did I complain about the wrong flight?"
Cons: "This is a confusing review page. If you ask about my flight to Minneapolis, I think you mean Reykjavik to Minneapolis, but I think that was actually Tallinn to Copenhagen."
Pros: "The crew was very professional."
Cons: "Legroom was nonexistent on the first leg (Amsterdam to iceland) of our flight"
Cons: "Luggage check-in terrible! None upon arrival. Then 1-hour+ wait w no staff help. Those behind us told by non-staff of new counter opened but not us (we are 72 and 69 years of age). Should be one line with customers directed to the next open counter to be fair. Lots of confusion. Same at boarding."
Pros: "My neighbor was nice. I did not really like anything else about this particular flight."
Cons: "Many of the electronics on the plane did not work. Could not summon flight crew, not turn on light. Seatbelt signs did not work. Plane was horrendously outdated. Former Kenyan Airlines livery. Unless I’m going to Iceland, I am going to avoid Icelandair from this point forward."
Pros: "The crew was excellent- courteous and helpful. The outgoing flight was good, but the return flight was quite a disaster. Boarding was disorganized and had to stand for a very long time. Seats were very narrow, and did NOT reline. The seatback entertainment and usb power did NOT work in our section."
Cons: "Better boarding procedure in KEF. Our plane felt like a third-world aircraft with non-working equipment, VERY tight non-reclining seats. A cracker would have been nice on a 6 hour flight."
Cons: "Chaos at gate. Audio jack on entertainment needs replacing, keeps cutting out. MUCH abuse of carry on size and amounts. Monitored at check in, but numerous people didnt bring carry on when getting boarding passes. No monitoring at gate. Boarding pass would not scan for a large number of people"
Pros: "Crew let us know that we all would make our connections."
Cons: "Really poor communication prior to the flight taking off. Crew did not tell us the flight was going to be delayed until after our departure time. And then gave us little guidance afterwards."
Pros: "I really like Iceland air and have always found them to be the best but I can’t say this flight was very enjoyable"
Cons: "Plane had the least leg room of any plane I have ever flown on. There was no entertainment which was good since I couldn’t even put my tray down when the person in front reclined. Seats very uncomfortable. Staff didn’t seem like the usually very friendly Icelandair people"
Pros: "Crew was nice. Didn't smell, good air circulation (& I was right next to the bathrooms)."
Cons: "Really was a good flight. No complaints."
Pros: "The crew was great."
Cons: "A snack could have been provided with the drink"
Pros: "Good price point. Very nice and efficient crew, greeted at boarding with pillow, blanket and water bottle. Entertainment with free movies and very nice travel info-logues on Iceland. Airline offers up to 7 day Iceland stay-overs at no extra cost. Nice legroom on the 767, and I'm 6'5"."
Cons: "The small personal pizzas were so-so, sandwich was pretty good. Alcoholic drinks were somewhat expensive. Reykjavik airport deplaning was via outside stairs to a bus in mild rain, but that's probably not the airline's fault."
Cons: "Three hour delay in Reykjavik was needed and appropriate because of harsh/blustery winds. The passengers appreciated the absolute attention to safety in the long delay."
Cons: "The seat bottom cushion was extremely uncomfortable."
Pros: "Flight crew does well to get everything settled and up in the air ASAP. Cabin crew attentive to needs. Wonderful touch on Iceland Day to have little pieces of chocolate cake."
Cons: "Seats aren’t the most comfortable, but then whose seats in economy class are comfortable? Also, some thought should be given to NOT letting economy seats recline; the impact to the passenger behind the seat is more harmful than the benefit to the “recliner”."
Pros: "Easy check-in, welcoming crew, landed on time, no problems."
Pros: "Smooth flight. Plenty of space. Good inflight entertainment made the trip pass quickly."
Cons: "No free snack like pretzels. Usually you get some complementary food on international flights"
Cons: "After sitting on the plane for an hour, they told us to deplane. Once deplaned, we waited for nearly 20 minutes for direction to go to baggage claim and then ticketing. Ticketing did nothing to help anyone. No hotel accommodations, no redirecting of flights, NOTHING at 9:00pm. They instructed everyone without using the computer or phone, to come back tomorrow and stated that our connecting flights would be available (even though they are not). Just had to spend $3000+ on a last minute flight because once in Iceland, I would be stuck with no connecting flight."
Pros: "Reasonable price"
Cons: "I was charged $250 to change my wife's flight even though the change was required due to my unexpected military orders!"
Pros: "We sat on the tarmac in Reykjavik for several hours before leaving to London. It was cramped and uncomfortable. They should not have boarded that flight if it wasn't going to takeoff."
Cons: "It was not clear that the fare did not include checking a bag. For an international flight, it's hard not to check a bag. I ended up paying a lot more for the flights than I expected."
Pros: "The price was fantastic for a round trip flight from the US to Europe."
Cons: "As is with all airlines, boarding and deplanting was awful. The airport in Iceland left a bit to be desired, but I don't know that you can really fault the airline for that."
Cons: "My boarding pass had me in row 9, at boarding they pushed me back to row 34, the last row on the plane. And the flight attendant was a little heavy, couldn't walk passed without bumping me. So much for sleeping."
Pros: "Having more leg room. Smaller plane. Short transit time."
Cons: "Being charged for a $10 meal after paying $100s for a ticket"
Pros: "nice flight, excellent attendant service, especially the lead attendant who provided me with a bag of ice to put on the ankle I twisted in the airport while looking for my wife who was in the enhanced security check line (never did find her) she finally showed up 45 minutes later. food was great, nice amenities, comfortable seats, good service, smooth flight, I have no complaints with Icelandair, I will fly them again"
Cons: "The aforementioned enhanced US security check on my 74 year old wife, she is not a muslim and she was not wearing a hajib) they need to use common sense (of course, being government employees they are not allowed that privilege) Here is something to keep in mind; none of this S--- would be necessary if it weren't for MUSLIMS"
Cons: "Does this airline ever leave on time. Glad we did not have a connecting flight this time."
Cons: "No leg room, two bathrooms not working"
Pros: "Great flight food and Saga lounge in Iceland"
Pros: "reasonable choice of films"
Cons: "The incoming aircraft was over an hour late arriving, but there was no prior message that the outbound flight would be delayed. The boarding area was too small to accommodate all the waiting passengers comfortably. Most airlines flying from Schiphol arrange for more gate space."
Pros: "Pleasant flight."
Cons: "I wish Icelandic had better food choices."
Pros: "It was a nice short flight. The movie selection was good and the crew brought around drinks once we were in the air."
Pros: "We had a most wonderful flight attendant named Axel Arnason on our flight who was great and made the flight not only bearable but actually very good. We were very unhappy at boarding and he recognized this, took the initiative, and went out of his way to insure that we were happy. One of the other flight attendants also gave us a free meal. I thought the airline should have given everyone a free dinner due to such lousy service at the gate. I would highly recommend that your executives take a plane ride in economy. It may open your eyes!"
Cons: "We had a two hour delay before leaving in Oslo. We walked into the most chaotic scene i've ever experienced at a terminal. Despite having a two hour window, nothing had been done to prepare for all the people arriving and needing to connect. There were no lines, no signs, no people to tell us where to go or how to board. It was a big fat mess! There was no time to go to the restroom, get something (less expensive) to eat or take with us. Very poorly handled. Once on board the plane, the very least that should have been done as to give everyone a free dinner. If we hadn't had such a nice flight attendant I would be requesting reimbursement for the meal we had to buy on the plane. I don't know if we will fly with you again. The seats are tiny, no snacks provided, and not a very good food menu."
Pros: "My icelandair experiences have all been exceptional. The crew is friendly and efficient, announcements were not disruptive and were informative appropriately, and on Easter they handed out chocolate Icelandic Easter eggs which I thought was a nice touch on a holiday."
Cons: "I have a lower ratings for food because I think that on a long international flight there should be something complementary as opposed to everything being purchased. That being said, I still have it four stars because the flights are inexpensive in comparison to other companies and I can understand that perhaps it is a cost cutting measure--in which case I am glad for it."
Pros: "Adequate space around seat; movies"
Cons: "Flight delayed >hour with passengers already on plane which made being on a 7+ hour flight even longer; terminal at Reykjavik was very crowded without adequate seating; food very expensive and long lines."
Pros: "The entertainment system was great. There were tons of movies that were available in flight which was nice."
Cons: "The crew was not that nice, there wasn't even a snack offered (I was told no multiple times when I asked for water), and they failed to keep us updated on all delays/connections. I was very disappointed when we were delayed 45 minutes and were given no updates as to the delay. We had a connecting flight from Reykjavik to JFK and we landed 10 minutes before the connecting flight was to take off. No one on board made an announcement or really knew what was going on. For an airline that has branded itself "my stopover" they should have reassured and updated all passengers as to connections and delays. It was very nerve wracking and did not need to be that way. Very disappointing."
Pros: "Although there are very few food options, the chicken curry I had was tasty. It would be nice to have more hot food options in December."
Cons: "NiceThe flight was 3 hours late and you had to go outside in the freezing Weather to board."
Pros: "The entertainment provided was great, the seats were fairly comfortable and the flight crew was great"
Cons: "My friend flew Delta to our same location at almost the same time for a slightly cheaper fair and she received two free meals and two hot towels aboard the flight. I wasn't expecting to have to pay for dinner. Otherwise I would have brought food on."
Pros: "What's nice is Iceland air allows free seat selection."
Cons: "Icelandair offers no meals or snacks on an overseas 7+ hour flight. That's pathetic. I don't mind cutting corners to save air fare price, but you have to offer SOMETHING to eat, a cold sandwich, chips, anything, other than beverages. They only make like once beverage pass during the 7 hours, which is also cheap. The movies are extremely old. I think there was one movie from last year. Otherwise their old favorites. The movie/TV/music selection is pretty poor. So either bring your own movies to watch or sleep, which is also hard. Iceland's international Keflavik airport, is in need of improvement if they're going to try to increase tourism. While it was Nov, and short days, it was windy and snowing. They use buses to get you to the plane or you have to walk about 50 yds. If you're carting big carryons, are seniors or handicapped, it's rough. You don't want to wear a coat for this short boarding/deboarding because you don't want to have to store it in the overhead. They need to get gangways for boarding or provide something for people wait in. There is no waiting area with seats while you wait for your plane. On one departure, people were sitting on the stairs or floors. There are some waiting areas, but they're away from the gates, and not enough seats. What made it worse, they had three flights leaving almost the same time from gates next to each other. There were crowds and lines that made no sense, people were cutting inline, and it was chaos. They don't know how to run an airport. Amsterdam didn't have waiting areas either or they were very small Not the typical American airport waiting areas we're used to. At Amsterdam you do your own boarding and luggage check in, which is confusing the first time you do it. There are things I like about European travel, but this isn't one of them."
Pros: "Nothing to complain about. Satisfied customer."
Pros: "1st time flying with them. Comfortable seats, great crew! Nice options for entertainment. Have recommended them to everyone!"
Cons: "Boarding outside in the rain."
Pros: "Seating; ample legroom in Ecomomy. Gate staff were responsive. Blankets & pillows were available for long flight. Entertainment system really worked well. Good selection of shows, movies, etc.."
Cons: "Boarding proceedure really sucked."
