Thank you for offering a dietary option that is compassionate toward animals and contributes less to climate change! Now if only the planes were powered by clean, renewable energy... Hopefully that will become a reality someday very soon! Oh, and also the crew on this flight was exceptionally kind and helpful. Thank you so much!"
Cons: "I did not enjoy the turbulence, which I suppose is unavoidable. More importantly, I felt quite guilty about the greenhouse gas emissions of my flight. I have decided to cut down on my air travel as much as possible as a way of reducing my carbon footprint."
Pros: "Seats were very comfortable, food was excellent, the staff was very nice, cabin was quite and roomy."
Cons: "No outlets to charge digital devices, and need more bathrooms on board. I was able to sleep most of the 11 hour flight so I did not take advantage of the entertainment."

Cons: "Really poor entertainment choices esp compared to my inbound AirFrance flight. Boarding was pretty disorganized and late."
Pros: "Nothing really"
Cons: "Flew KLM 27 years ago and the airlines seem to be stuck in the same era. Food is poor quality... Have you recently checked the Gulf carriers."
Cons: "The streaming service didn’t work"
Pros: "The cabin crew were pretty good. That's about all that was good."
Cons: "I paid almost $400 for upgraded seats. When I got to the airport-- no seats-- both ways!! i didn't even have regular seat assignments. I had to choose from the last few seats available. The ticket agent, the gate agent and the cabin crew all did nothing to make up for the fact that their system screwed up and stuck me in a cramped coach seat in the back of the plane for 11 hours-- TWICE! Beyond that, KLM must have one of the oldest fleets in the sky. Both ways LAX->AMS->LAX, I was on a 30-35 year old 747 with no wifi, no power and a ten-year-old entertainment system. Never again."
Pros: "That we didn't crash"
Cons: "Being delayed and missing my connecting flight. No entertainment onboard (for hours and hours)."

Pros: "Everytime she passed she was hitting me or I had to hold my drink so that she wouldn't knock it off"
Pros: "Loved this 747! Crew was professional and food was very good."
Cons: "We had a long wait (25 minutes) at the gate because we were early."
Pros: "Crew was friendly, and the food was better than the usual KLM fare."
Cons: "The "new" seats were hard and uncomfortable. Avoid any kinds of seats near the bathroom in a configuration with 3 abreast next to the windows. The "aisle" seat is essentially a "waiting area" for the rest room."
Pros: "Short, comfortable flight. Nothing special. Got us where we needed to be without incident."
Cons: "Nothing. This is filler text to meet the min. characters."
Pros: "For an 8 hr flight...multiple snacks, 2 meals and continuous beverage service. Blanket, pillow amd movies."
Cons: "Watched flight attendant drop tongs on floor, pick them up and put them back in the bowl of buns and continue to use them to serve bums"
Pros: "The flight crew were kind, polite, and attentive."
Cons: "Bussing to the plane was a bit odd, but the crew remained organized in doing so. When we arrived to the plane, they had both entrances open so that those sitting near the rear of the plane would enter from the back. Plane was a little chilly, but I have come to expect that one most flights."
Pros: "Newer plane. Dimming windows, upgraded bathroom. Flight crew very pleasant."
Cons: "Boarding wasn't announced. Limited in flight movie selection. Food was average. Same dessert for both meals served."
Pros: "Free movies"
Cons: "Free wifi. Better movie selection"
Pros: "the seating was very uncomfortable i barely had any leg room"
Cons: "Dont go on economy its not good espically fir being the main airline for spain its not really that good compared to other airways for example british airways"
Pros: "Check in was simple and efficient, boarding was easy, leg space was sufficient, air hostess where polite and plane was clean prior to take off. Landing and take off both on time."
Cons: "Two toilets for 100+ people meant long queues for the bathroom throughout the flights. The toilets were not even once cleaned in a flight of 4 Hours, meaning that by the final hour, they were a complete utter disaster in terms of hygiene. Pilot made a complete mess of descending and landing."
Pros: "The crew was really good"
Pros: "The connection was way too tight."
Cons: "Hel-LAX flight was ok. LAX and connecting flight were bad, slow and delayed frequently."
Pros: "Loved Finnair. Hated Justfly.com. If you own this company, you need to end up like Blockbuster or Circuit City."
Cons: "If I would have purchased my tickets from Finnair.com, I would have had a much better experience. Kayak found me a good price but purchasing the tickets through Justfly.com was the biggest mistake of my life. The trip ended up costing me $285 more than what I budgeted and there was zero customer ser"
Pros: "Food and entertainment is good"
Cons: "They had hidden checked bag fees. Their website says flights from the US get a free checked bag. The checkout charged me $60 to check a bag, when I looked on my reservation it says it’s $55 and when I called customer service they said they charge $100 to check 1 bag less than 20kg for an international flight"
Cons: "Same as above. Seats very narrow. But enough leg room"
Pros: "The flight and the crew was very nice, and the food was very good."
Cons: "Some phone people were very nice, some were not."
Cons: "Finnair had the worst leg room I've ever had in 50 years of traveling. It was so TIGHT that my knees were pressing up agains the seat in front of me the whole 8 hours of flight, even though I am only 5'7"! I felt really sorry for those passengers who were taller. Finnair also lost my checked in bag and delivered it 36 hours later without providing any compensation. Coming back the flight was delayed due to mechanical reasons, which caused a number of passengers miss connecting flights. This is one of the things that can happen to any airline, but only Finnair failed to provide an agent to take care of the passengers who missed their flights. So, after a 2 hour delay and 7 hours of traveling in the air, the stranded passengers had to find an agent in JFK who would rebook their flights. One of the worst traveling experiences. Will never travel Finnair again!"
Pros: "The flight did eventually take off, unlike a few others leaving around the same time."
Cons: "We were delayed several hours and were never told why. Mostly there were no Aeroflot staff at the gate to ask. When there was, they said they couldn't help us because our flight was a codeshare with FinnAir. At the last minute they switched gates, sending us all scurrying."
Pros: "Great service on biz class, comfortable seat, quiet airplane (A350)."
Cons: "I liked it all."
Pros: "Business class consisted of the same cramped seating as economy. No entertainment at all for the 6+ hour flight. Horrible food."
Cons: "Boarding in EU was chaotic. They didn't board on groups. Slow check in at Munich."
Pros: "The shortest flight time between NYC and St. Petersburg Russia. Good connecting time, smooth transition in Helsinki."
Cons: "I have never used this airline before and as it was highly rated, I was glad to give it a try. The seats were crammed together very tightly, even for me, a short person! So, the flight was uncomfortable. Then the food was poor. The selection of films was uninspired. The service was indifferent, disinterested, ungenerous. There was something meager, miserly in the whole experience. They are obviously maximizing profits at the expense of the customer, who seems totally disregarded. I would not choose this airline again!"
Cons: "Seats. Very uncomfortable"
Pros: "The stewardess was really sweet and funny! She was very accomodating even though there was high stress because the flight was late."
Cons: "The flight was 30 minutes late, which made it really hard on a few passengers, myself not included, who had transfers."
Pros: "Boarding and de-boarding was quick"
Cons: "We had a very rude male flight attendant that argued with us when they didn't have a vegetarian meal for my wife even though we checked that box when buying our tickets. My wife ate two bread rolls for dinner before the next meal 7 hours later. Later, when the second meal was served, he muttered a smart assed reply to my wife after he handed her food to her. After that meal service he offered everyone coffee except us."
Pros: "My flight was very pleasant and comfortable. It was one of the few times I was actually able to fall asleep on a plane. I also like that this is the first airline that served me blueberry juice which I thought was good."
Cons: "My only dislike was that we left 45 minutes late. Maybe it was not a good situation for some passengers who had to connect immediately, but I still made it in time for my connecting flight."
Cons: "Wifi spotty"
Cons: "The meal made me sick."
Pros: "It is misleading to review this as finnair flight. Not relevant"
Pros: "I was a bit surprised by cabin crew 's welcoming words that were my native language ,which ware very familiar and joyful . I didn't feel well at that time with a severe cold and I endured during the entire fly . I know it's kind of bad but I made it to my country safely. The food was Korean food and I really enjoyed and loved it so much .The Helsinki airport is great with smoking booth and warm ."
Cons: "Nothing but I wonder if they could change my seat to upper one despite my additional fare because I felt bad the day and they had cold pills like medicine."
Cons: "food was about the worst I have seen (with special mention to the coffee served as it was def the worst even for airplanes standards) could not check in online ( web would not allow me)"
Pros: "Bulkhead seat Good choice of movies"
Cons: "Seat recline broken. Sarcastic male steward. Terrible food. Contracted Norovirus from the plane. Need to better disinfect between flights."
Pros: "The flight to and from Los Angeles was operated by British Airways and was on one of their Airbus fleet. Boarding was completed efficiently and with ease. I sat on the upper deck and was very comfortable in comparison to other major airlines previously used for this particular flight. The plane was very clean and the crew were outstanding. Nothing appeared to be too much trouble for crew, and they were ready with beverages, including tea and coffee, and snacks throughout the flight. In flight entertainment was good. All in all very pleasant flight to and from the U K."
Pros: "Good customer service, top notch on all aspects. Very attentive staff.."
Cons: "2 hours late to leave but part of wing flap needed to be repaired before flight"
Pros: "The Iberia plane had a new interior, and possibly was a new plane. The new thinner padding on plane seats was not a problem at all. The crew was friendly and let me switch to a different seat that had an empty one beside it so I could stretch out more. A great flight."
Cons: "I liked everything. They exceeded my expectations."
Pros: "It was an Iberia flight, sold by Finnair. Pretty full but I had two seats by window to myself. I really liked the personal entertainment system at each seat, with lots of choices for viewing and listening, plus usb port for charming my phone. Food was not bad for economy class airplane food. Crew was efficient."
Cons: "A bit cramped - could have used more leg room. But not the worst I've had."
Pros: "It was a British Airways flight, plane was large, and felt more roomy than what I'm used to. The service was impeccable."
Pros: "everything was ok."
Cons: "I couldn't check in on time as the booking numbers were different on the actual company that was flying me. I was trying to do this on my phone and I had to call in each time. couldn't do it on the computer."
Pros: "The crew were trying to help and accommodate the bad situation."
Cons: "Couldn't check in online 24 hours ahead. When called Finnair on the phone, they couldn't check us in, told us we have to check in at counter, by then all good seats were taken and I couldn't sit next to my husband, and this is our honeymoon trip. It's a full flight and All upgrades were booked by then so couldn't even upgrade to business class. Requested a gluten free meal, no crew can figure out it that meal was on board (not in system nor on paper list), so at the end no food for me. I have been dying BA for last five years and this had to be the worst BA flight I have taken, absolute chaos at the check in counter and no organization. One BA counter agent Alexa tried to help but it is just too late. I expected more from BA."
Pros: "crew was friendly and courteous"
Cons: "had to be bussed to different part of airport to board plane no sound on the entertainment console"
Pros: "Polite and friendly flight attendants, smooth boarding procedure"
Cons: "Trash everywhere on the plan by mid flight.... Broken tv screen"
Cons: "We were unable to find a row of seats to more comfortably facilitate traveling with a baby and a toddler as seats that should have had a cot or extra seating didn't have the cot and were sold out for an additional fee before we had the chance to. Discussing this with the staff at check0in and at the gate, made no difference as they had no knowledge of what was available on that particular flight. Every time I fly with American I'm reminded of why I don't like the airline and I will do my best to avoid them moving forward regardless of competitive ticket pricing."
Pros: "The options for music and movies were good, but the poor service provided, at check-in and on board, outweighed any benefit we received from the entertainment."
Cons: "The crew at Barcelona Airport, especially "Javier" (he refused to give his last name or show his badge - he had it turned around) was very rude and unhelpful. We had to go to another desk person to help us who was a bit more polite. The Finnair Customer Service telephone service was completely unhelpful even though this was booked as a Finnair Flight. The crew on board was ok, at best. The food was the poorest we had in both flights we took (we travelled from Barcelona to JFK, New York, and from JFK to YVR, Vancouver). We were most pleased with our flight from New York to Vancouver, with Cathay Pacific, who, by comparison, had very helpful and pleasant staff both at the JFK Airport and on board."
Pros: "I booked the seats with extra room - really glad I did. The food wasn't bad, the entertainment system worked. I definitely prefer the Virgin Atlantic entertainment system, but I fly AA fairly often and will continue to."
Cons: "The airport check-in was absolutely terrible. We were in line so long that an employee came up to us and said "I can't believe you're still here." Neither could I. We get to the airport at least three hours early because of stuff like this, but the incredibly slow line and unorganized way of handling it ate any of the time I'd looked so forward spending at Heathrow (I love hitting Boots etc)."
Pros: "For economy it felt roomier than other flights I have taken recently. Enjoyed the food the movies and the cabin staff."
Pros: "The inflight movie selection."
Cons: "The uncomfortable chair."
Cons: "It was delayed uncomfortable and terrible service"
Cons: "Food wasn't very good"
Pros: "Entertainment choices were good."
Cons: "The flight attendants were noisy, walking back and forth, so it was hard to rest, more like stomping. Was not pleased with flight attendant who served me, was kinda cocky and not friendly, which spoiled the customer service experience. Not enough leg room, cramped. Wish they had decaf tea. Other than that we arrived safely, so I'm very appreciative."
Pros: "That they actually gave a meal."
Cons: "Main course of chicken and rice was clearly on the small size for a 10+ hour flight. The chicken was in some vague sweet and sour sauce. It was a good thing that I had bought sandwiches before boarding. Return flight LHR to LAX was on BA and the main course of chicken and mashed potatoes was substantially larger and tastier."
Cons: "Hi -- the flight was fine. A bit of turbulence and rocky but it was raining so it's understandable. The crew was nice, professional. The plan was actually delayed 1.5 hours. They sent a text message at 7:15 apparently but my phone was not on so I understand not receiving it. I also left for the airport around 7:15. I also received an email from Kayak at 7 am that said there was no delay so I didn't check to see if there would be any others. I never received an email from Kayak about the delay. I would just suggest making sure all the alerts I get are correct. I also receieved an email to check in 72 hours before the flight but it wouldn't let me on Finnair.com Maybe I was supposed to go to Open Skies. Thanks! Melodie"
Cons: "Very narrow aisle that made it very hard to navigate carrying my daughter's car seat"
Cons: "Long wait after boarding waiting for bus. Bus out to plane. After boarding, horrible stench of fuel fumes inside plane. Probably very unhealthy and carcinogenic."
Pros: "It was great having a whole row to myself, the staff were good and they're was a much better selection of movies than on other air carriers flights"
Cons: "The temperature in the cabin wasn't great, being so hot it will only breed those germs. Food could be better, especially breakfast. I think they should bring the drinks around more often too."
Cons: "Ingen underhållning ingen flyginformation otrevlig personal jag kommer inte att flyga Finnair igen. Jag och alla andra fick sitta att stirra på väggen framför oss i 7timmar den spanska personalen ska inte jobba för ett nordiskt flygbolag fy fan Med vänlig hälsning Benny"
Pros: "The crew was friendlier than on the other airlines we took on our trip. The seats were cramped (coming from someone average height) and the middle and window seats have a combined under the seat compartment so you don't feel like you have personal space. I wish the breakfast was more substantial, but other than that it was a wonderful flight and I would definitely take it again!"
Pros: "All of the flight attendants were extremely sweet!"
Cons: "It is difficult to get in and out of chair. I wish the chair handle would be moved up . Every time I needed to go to bathroom , I hurt myself."
Pros: "Staff was exceptional."
Cons: "First a large number of the flight was flagged for special screening which meant that they had to do additional procedures and were very understaffed as many of us talking near 100 people had to stay behind and wait for over an hour as three employees screened us in detail. This while the rest of the plane was already boarded. Thus the flight left late and arrived very late to LAX. Secondly the refrigeration on board for food was broken thus spoilong the food so we only received one meal on an 11 hour flight which we were starving and not what we paid for during this flight. They did offer snacks but when not having a full meal as paid for it is a huge let down. Thirdly why is Wi-Fi not offered on this flight. Due to the late departure and late arrival we missed my connection to TUS and was not able to make calls or email during the flight. Not acceptable. Very unhappy and will never be flying with British Airways again. I WILL ALSO NEVER LET FRIENDS AND FAMILY FLY WITH THEM. An airline as prestigious as BA needs to work better at ensuring the minimum on offering wait we the customer pays for and this did not happen. Staff was amazing and very friendly but we were very dejected and felt that your brand suffered a lot with this experience. I do hope to hear from airline about this incident as my wife and I travel constantly."
Pros: "Amazing! Great customer service from flight attendants and it was a smooth travel. Loved it!"
Cons: "The crew was rude and almost didn't seem like they wanted to be there especially this one person called Byron."
Pros: "Good see selection for food and entertainment. Chicken curry was tasty. Staff were friendly and helpful."
Cons: "Not enough leg room or reclining space for such a long flight. Viewing screens are too close to face for comfort... especially for people with older eyes. Focal distance is farther away."
Cons: "Please fix the boarding process."
Pros: "Smaller plane, Embraer, but relatively comfortable seats. Friendly personnel."
Pros: "Arrived 30 minutes late after problem at gate with the Jetway not retracting. Ground staff were pleasant. In-flight staff were friendly and helpful. Food was okay."
Cons: "Having to pay to select your seats is bargain carrier behavior. My family of four had to pay nearly $400 extra to select our seats in advance instead of having them assigned to selecting them the day of the flight. Seats were cramped and not too comfortable. I flew Air France on a previous trip to Europe and it was much more comfortable seating. The in-flight entertainment system kept freezing up and had to be reset multiple times. The touch screen (which is the method of navigation through the system) did not work. On a 5 hour flight that would be an inconvenience - on an 11 hour flight it is a bit more of a problem."
Pros: "Comfortable, great crew and food/drink options, free upgrade. They are the best!"
Pros: "Everything was pretty standard, was really impressed by the polarized video screens that look black if you're not sitting right in front of them. Genius. Food was good! But you know...for an airplane"
Cons: "Once the attendants handed out snacks on one side of the plane and not the other. I was pretty sad about that."
Pros: "The flight attendants were extremely friendly and helpful and really made the trip enjoyable I also liked all the activities that very offered some screens in the seats in front of us ."
Cons: "The pilot made a rude comment about the American security agents that I thought was uncalled for. They may not agree with how Americans do their security but for the pilot to make a comment in a negative connotation regarding the Americans and how they run their security before we left London was really inappropriate and I was very disappointed."
Pros: "The food was good and the flight attendants were attentive, especially considering the number of passengers. Overall, British Airways does a much better job than most American airlines."
Cons: "As with most airlines, the seats were cramped, especially when the person in front of me reclined their seat."
Pros: "The crew were friendly and took their time answering questions. We were offered liquids often, the food was just OK, the entertainment units worked well, the chairs were relatively comfortable.. We were allowed to wait for the restrooms. Yeah,,,"
Cons: "The food could be better and of course more leg room."
Cons: "Legroom could be better"
Cons: "While I prefer beef to be cooked rare to medium-rare (and mentioned this) on both legs the meat was well-done and dry. This is common to many airline steaks, and may be an unavoidable consequence of the limitations of preparing food on board. (Though I have had reasonably prepared meat dishes on certain AA flights). All dishes are highly under-seasoned, but a packet of salt and paper is provided, so this is not a curial concern."
Pros: "Again, I liked that the staff was very kind, accommodating and professional"
Cons: "I did not like a family that delayed us by 10 minutes because they did not wanted to comply with policy regarding a cello they were carrying. It was very annoying and they did not apologize to the staff."
Pros: "Decent leg room, crew and entertainment."
Cons: "Upon landing late in London from Rome there was no one to bring the walkway to the plane so had to wait on the plane when we were already behind schedule on a tight connection. THEN having to go through second security check in London when changing planes and security in terminal C was closed so had to transfer to terminal B for security and back to C to catch flight barely making it! Luggage did not make connection. Promised it will be delivered today."
Cons: "Unfortunately I am allergic to all the food they offered .I wish the served a plain chicken or plain turkey.Everything was spicy or mixed with a pesto or curry. They need to something that is served completely plain ."
Pros: "Flight crew is the most helpful and genuine I've experienced of all carriers. I've had bad experiences with Lufthansa, United, American, and Delta. Everything we asked of BA was taken care of quickly and they truly seemed to care more. They are especially attentive to children. The A320 storage space overhead is huge and seemed to have room to spare with a fully booked flight."
Cons: "Seats are so uncomfortable for people 6 foot tall and above. Why can't they make a seat that adjusts for taller people."
Pros: "The flight crew worked really hard on this flight and it seemed like they had very few breaks or down time. The entertainment was great, it made my flight seem shorter than it really was."
Pros: "great entertainment, crew, and enough bathrooms! Served drinks often and the food was quite good!"
Cons: "Like all airlines, very small seats in economy"
Pros: "Crew was terrific! Comfortable equipment, nice food offered. Generally felt the entire BA team had a great attitude which makes a world of difference regarding the experience."
Pros: "Connection desk and gate attendance were the only people who tried to help fix the mistakes made by the people in madrid. Global access allowed to quicken our time spent going home after the mets that was our flight home."
Cons: "the attendant at the connection desk did not understand why we had not been given boarding passes or allowed to check in to our flights in madrid. the gate attendants did not understand that even though we were numbers 72 and 73 person processed we were not allowed to check in, receive boarding passes or allowed to sit next to my sister who's reservation was connected to mine"
Cons: "It never happened as I was rerouted through Dallas/Fort Worth"
Pros: "Great equipment, fantastic service and punctual."
Pros: "Long flight but free personal entertainment screens and free food breakfast, lunch dinner and snack. Free wine with the dinner"
Pros: "Great service and good food."
Cons: "About 100 people didn't make the flight!"
Cons: "That the flight was delayed and we had to run to make our connection. The flight attendant reassured us that we were making up the lost time in the air and there was going to be no issues."
Pros: "flight was on time. Checking in was easy, and well directed. As for entertainment, plenty of new release movies to view."
Cons: "The seats are uncomfortable, due to a metal box under the seats . You have to sit with legs in an angle, instead of straight; After 9 hours, it's very uncomfortable."
Pros: "Great staff and actually comfortable :)"
Cons: "Everything was great"
Pros: "Every thing was great . From the friendly crew, comfortable seat and good food."
Cons: "Nothing bad to say"
Cons: "video unavailable for half for the flight"
Cons: "Flight was 3 hours delayed, the previous flight lost our baggage and we arrived in LAX at 11. We then missed our connecting flight from LAX to PHX. British a Airways told us that they couldn't do anything about it and we had to stay the night in the airport and get on the next flight at 6am from southwest."
Pros: "The flight crew was excellent. Attentive and amusing."
Cons: "I hate that the armrests don't raise up only halfway, so if you happen to luck out and have an empty seat next to you, you will can't lie down comfortably."
Pros: "Great movie selection! Really good...."
Cons: "I'm 5.10 so seats are much worse for me because of long legs! Especially on a long flight :("
Pros: "Entertainment selection."
Cons: "The air was stale. No circulation. It made me sick."
Cons: "Paid extra for seat- seriously? why??? No one else did and there was no extra leg room~ Make it fair for everyone!"
Pros: "I loved everything about the trip. From the aircraft to the crew. Jaime (flight attendant) became like a friend on that trip. I will use British Airways for every flight to Europe going forward."
Pros: "Food was great. Service was great"
Cons: "There were these metal boxes in floor and there was no leg room"
Pros: "The food and service was good."
Cons: "My luggage was damaged and when we tried to do a claimed over the phone they didn't give us much of an option. I didn't do it a the airport because I was traveling with a minor and my Morher who is 73 years old and after a 18 hour travel day they need to come home."
Pros: "Boarding was quick and staff was friendly. On board the service was great. All flight attendants were smiling, friendly and kept coming through the economy cabin with orange juice and water to make sure we were all well hydrated. We received lunch, movie snacks, and a mini pizza lunch. The only meal that wasn't great was the mini pizza."
Cons: "The only minor issue we had on this flight was that our entertainment units stopped playing movies 4 hours before we landed. The cabin crew tried resetting it a few times and tried everything they could to fix it, but it didn't work. They did compensate us for the inconvenience so that was nice."
Pros: "ON. INITIAL RELEASE ROUTED FLIGHT PUT US ON.AMERICAN AIRLINES...LIKE A CATTLE CAR.."
Cons: "OVERALL EXPERIENCE WITH BRITISH AIRLINES...WILL FLY WITH DIFFERENT CARRIER NEXT TIME..."
Pros: "Where's my luggage British Airways? You lost all of my most precious belongings, after you forced me to check my bag!"
Cons: "Well standing at the luggage carousel like a fool waiting for luggage that has yet to be found, really sucked! Not cool to be forced to check my luggage at the baggage check and ticketing because they claim there's no room for it, then they lose my bag. All the other people had their carry-ons. We checked in 3 1/2 hours early, and apparently they did this to 6 other families on our flight! Not good to be losing so much luggage."
Pros: "The crew were ALL super friendly. My first time on a flight were ALL the stewards were polite, kind and helpful. Usually there's just one, if any. However they were all so friendly and accommodating."
Cons: "Although I was in business class the service seemed unattentive and sparse. The crew did not check for passengers needing additional drinks and did not clear the empty glasses until almost the end of the flight. Overall, the crew seemed more suited to economy class than business class."
Cons: "We had a 4 hour delay . At the boarding the crew was not given accurate information. I even had to go to customer service and than tto a station manager to make sure that I would get the correct information. Once handled the crew and also the station manager was good."
Cons: "I arrived in Los Angeles on a Saturday and was told my luggage was still in London but they would have someone deliver it to me the next day (Sunday) 5-8 pm. No one showed up or bothered to call. I checked the status and was told 10 pm. No one showed. I was then told 12-1 AM. No one showed. No one bothered to call. No one showed up until 3 AM Monday morning. I took my frustrations to twitter and it looks like this is a common occurrence with British Airways."
Pros: "The best-flight entertainment I have ever had on a trans-Atlantic flight. The flight also arrived forty minutes earlier than estimated."
Pros: "On my way to Dublin it was good service everything went smooth boarding, crew and food"
Cons: "On the way back from Dublin I did not like the fact the airplane did not have any entertainment. It is a long trip and just to sit down for more than 10 hours is difficult."
Pros: "We almost died!!! Engine failure during flight"
Cons: "One engine failed while in flight. We almost died!!!! No support or replacement flight by Norwegian. Never again"
Pros: "The flight was very comfortable. Better than my expectations. Good entertainment. Food and drink on demand."
Cons: "Luggage allowance is pretty strict. You have to pay extra for everything more than a seat on the plane."
Pros: "Boeing 787; Smooth flight; Tasty food;"
Cons: "Boarding was not well organized at CDG; Didn't get a gate at LAX (had to take shuttle);"
Cons: "Everything. The check in machines were broken so I was FORCED to miss my flight. I had to pay $329 to get the next flight which was the next day and I paid for insurance. I'm across the world with no working phone, nowhere to stay and barely have anymore money yet instead of the desk right in front of me helping I had to call Norwegian. I've never heard of an international airline that doesn't feed you for 10 hours and then runs out of food for you to even purchase. It's madness. I will NEVER fly Norwegian again and I will let everyone know not to either."
Pros: "The crew was friendly, and very attentive."
Cons: "The flight boarded very slowly due to very inefficient check in process to just get into the gate area. There were about 15 people to check the weight of people's bags, and basically run security again (mostly standing around), while one person checked tickets and passports. This lead to the flight leaving an entire hour late. I ordered a meal for the flight, but was surprised that when I needed even just an additional glass of water (during the 12 hour flight) I was charged $3. If I had not ordered a meal, I would not have received even the one drink that I got. This was a 12 hour flight, and most people around me were not offered even water."
Pros: "Its more like an upgraded premium. There is lots of space. Decent value for money."
Cons: "Seat does not recline enough to get a good sleep. Food just OK. Entertainment choice very limited. Mainly old movies that have not changed in the past three months."
Pros: "Entertainment options were great"
Cons: "They fed us about 2 hours into the flight, and I thought the meal was okay, however my significant other felt the food was poor. The larger issue was that it was a 12 hour flight, and they didn't feed us again until 2 hours prior to landing, thus there was an 8 hour period with NO FOOD. Also, at no point did they come with drinks at any point, and when we asked for drinks (on the second occasion), the attendants simply shut off our light without coming. Lastly, the meal/snack at the end was definitely poor."
Cons: "The flight was delayed around 2 hours. We were all stuffed in a small waiting room, then kicked out to have everyone go through a security check again with no explanation. The entertainment and food on the plane was not great at all. Probably wouldn't fly with Norwegian again unless I was on a serious budget."
Cons: "my previous flight was delayed and I missed checkin for this flight by 10 minutes and was not able to make the flight, even though I had enough time to do so. Had to pay $2000 for a new ticket. TERRIBLE experience."
Pros: "The plane was new and had could technology. The lighting, windows, touch screens and bathrooms were all in good condition."
Cons: "The flight took a long time to load. I could not check in online or pick my seats. We checked a stroller when boarding, and when we got off we were told we could not get it until we went through customs. Customs at LAX takes an hour to get through, which left us with a baby and all of our carry-on luggage to transport for an hour. We traveled through many airports on this trip, but never had our stroller not available at the gate."
Pros: "Bigger windows, better storage, and the cabin pressure meant no jet lag. Cabin attendants were great. Amazing!"
Cons: "Other passengers: I can't believe how rude people are these days. No fault of Norwegian, though!"
Cons: "Extremely rude flight attendant that served my section. Lack of information about when you would be served. No free drinks including water, even though I paid for a meal. Very narrow seats, the only type of person that would fit comfortably would be a child. I was given a different seat from what I reserved and sat in the middle of 2 men (one with horrible body odor), both whom were very thin, but it was if we were all sharing the same seat, I couldn't move!!!! Toilets hadn't been cleaned, absolutely disgusting. When the pilot spoke, he had such a thick accent no one around me could figure out what he was saying. And last but not least, we sat on the plane for 3 hours before we took off, 2 of those hours was without airconditioning."
Cons: "See above. I will not choose Norwegian again if another airline is flying that route due to the ridiculous buckle and dining for food, blankets etc. it makes it way to expensive to travel with a family"
Pros: "Food seemed quality and practical. Good selection of films. Psyched up with the windows and air circulation technology changes."
Cons: "Staff need to be trained on how to talk to passengers. Little tight in economy section. Not much water throughout."
Pros: "Most everything was stellar! Except two things: limited free water, and very bad headphones."
Cons: "Everything was excellent except one thing. The headphones I purchased from Norwegian wete TERRIBLE. The sound was just awful, you couldn't barely make out the voices and there was no way to remedy it. Please fix that issue this has never happened to me before on other airlines their headphones worked fine. Also for long haul flights they should provide as much water as you need and not be forced to buy water - it is a necessity for good health and not getting dehydrated!"
Pros: "Tablet for entertainment-I liked it"
Cons: "Dreamliner nice. I sat in the center seat in the center section. I exited to my right because the guy got up for a minute. Needed to get to my luggage on the left. So I crossed the isle in the emergency exit row. The people sitting there had personal items (shoes, etc) in front of them including a red rolling carry on suitcase. Since this is an emergency exit area, why didn't one of the staff tell these people to move the suitcase. The lady was using the suitcase as an ottoman. I told the stewardess and she did nothing about it. Safety violation?"
Cons: "Boarding was over three hours late. Ground crew was not forthcoming with information. Packed us into a small waiting lounge and then cleared the lounge. The ground crew looked out-of-control of the situation."
Cons: "I had a terrible stomach ache & they would not let me use the restroom!!!"
Pros: "New Boeing 787, Very nice plane, comfortable, great entertainment. Watched 3 movies I had missed."
Cons: "Online checkin and seat selection did not work. We still got the 2 aisle seats we wanted but not together."
Cons: "Rude, no announcements"
Cons: "They always run out of the chicken option first for dinner."
Pros: "The Dreamliner is excellent. Everything is new. I surprisingly enjoyed the games available in the personal entertainment screen."
Cons: "For an 11-hour flight, I was surprised that pillows and blankets were not offered--especially since the AC was blasting out cold air. I was freezing throughout the entire flight and ended up getting a cold that I'm still recovering from. The only other issue I had was the lack of variety in movies and tv shows. Most were obscure movies and shows that I had never heard of. More recent/relevant options would be appreciated."
Pros: "The movie selection was really good."
Cons: "$65 for ONE regular checked bag?! Pay for WATER? And tea, coffee and EVERYTHING else? Flight was over 2 hrs delayed and they made NO announcements, nor did they say anything when I checked in."
Cons: "Didn't make it. Had to stay in hotel fly to London wait 4 hours then fly to Los angeles"
Pros: "Flight attendants werecordial"
Cons: "we paid for seats 8a and 8b but were put in 18 a and c with the excuse that row eight was for families with infants. Our flight attendants told us there was no such thing. Two adults sat in the seats we paid for. When we landed we sat on the plane for a half hour till they brought the stairs out. We took the same size plane both outbound and inbound yet on our return flight all of a sudden we had ti pay for one of our bags, exact same luggage as our departure flight including the same size plane"
Pros: "The food, the entertainment, the comfortable seats"
Pros: "Cabin crew nice. Economy relatively comfortable."
Cons: "Three hour delay from Paris to Los Angeles."
Pros: "Comfortable and really works to help alleviate jet lag. Amazing!"
Pros: "The plane is designed to establish a different cabin pressure which helps your fatigue when traveling long distances and it works! The place is quiet as well and there's an avg amount of space in coach."
Cons: "No wifi? Just seems odd for a new plane not to have that as an option."
Pros: "The flight attendants are very welcoming and kind. The cabin has a positive atmosphere and comfortable seating. Food was also surprisingly excellent."
Cons: "A bit cold."
Cons: "They did not have the vegetarian meal that I Pre ordered and paid for. I was very disappointed."
Pros: "Seat spacing very good for the economy class on the 787. Boarding is organized and efficient. No size limit on check in baggage."
Cons: "Ear phone not provided. Only 20 Kilo on check in baggage."
Cons: "People lining up too early in advance, not clear what was for free on board or had to be purchased based on buying ticket through Norwegian vs. not Norwegian, 2 different baggage claim carousels"
Pros: "Great value in terms of price and convenience. Aircraft was modern and comfortable."
Cons: "Boarding was a bit slow and disorganized at Barcelona."
Cons: "Boarding process at Arlanda airport in Sweden was a giant confusing mess. Everyone got herded into two different boarding areas and there was little explanation on what was going on."
Pros: "This flight was so much better than Economy for not much more money. We had plenty of room, footrests, reclining seats, and complementary blankets, food, and drinks. I really applaud Norwegian for making international travel bearable. The staff was very nice and helpful. I would definitely fly Norwegian again."
Cons: "It's nice to get free meals, although they are the dreadful TV dinners of the airline past. However, the bar is now so low that we are grateful for them. Boarding was chaotic and crowded. The flight was delayed two hours. Access to the premier lounges was a wonderful perk. We were able to relax and charge our devices away from the crowded airport terminal main area. Why random people were singled out for extra security checks, when we had already gone through the main security check, was a mystery no one bothered to explain. It really delayed the boarding process."
Pros: "Very efficient crew, food was great, had wine with my meal at no extra cost! I like The aircraft configuration with the seats, it makes it easier to board the plane."
Cons: "Games could be expanded, missed soduko."
Pros: "Comfortable seats, entertainment system, good meals, friendly crew!"
Pros: "Great price. Non stop service. Top of the line aircraft. Overall amazing value."
Cons: "There was nothing that I didn't like."
Pros: "Staff were very attentive. Food was good. 787 is amazing to fly on. So smooth"
Cons: "Check in was a little slow."
Cons: "they do not even serve you water, when I asked for water they asked me to pay, it is not low cost Airline, very unfriendly staff, I will never fly it again. the staff border line rudeness and have attitude issue. 11 hours of flight in unfriendly airline, fod is served if you order it and allowed two cup of coffee and one softwdring."
Pros: "Brand new plane 2 chargers per seat Don't overbook/overcrowd flights Didn't charge for checked luggage"
Pros: "In flight entertainment and ease of everything, check in, boarding was great!"
Cons: "Food was inedible."
Cons: "During ticketing , the crew is OK with my luggage. when we proceed to the gate , the crew Susan is very rude and threaten if we do not pay 40GPB, she will not let us board and scared my 7 years kid."
Cons: "Crew members were not polite and often were rude!"
Cons: "First off. I was late to my flight on the 19th, and Norwegian forced me to purchase an entire new ticket for a flight the next day. I have missed flights before and have never had to pay for another flight. The the next day, when I go to board, I see it is not Norwegian Air at all, it is some airline called Hi Fly that I have never heard of. Norwegian sold this flight to someone else. This airline is not up to my standards. The entertainment selection was very sparse. Besides the 1 1/2 meals provided, there was no food on an 11 hour flight! They ran out of alcohol 3 hours into the flight, which again, I have never seen that happen before."
Pros: "The plane was modern and spacious. A 787 Dreamliner."
Cons: "The flight attendant acted like I was imposing to ask for a cup of water."
Pros: "Wonderful crew."
Cons: "Seats are too small."
Pros: "Accomodations were good hotel food shuttle new plane entertainment system good"
Cons: "Flight was delayed 15 hours + due to "operational error" did not get notified via email/text"
