Late departure. No food service Flight was full of turbulence
Great flight attendants!! Also,pilots keep in touch with passengers ie time to land weather etc.
Delta is excellent. People need to stop complaining.
Flight was overbooked and we didn’t leave on time.
Cons: "Seats were a little dirty especially for the COVID-19 going around."
Pros: "Boarding process need to be improved. Seat assignment is horrible"
Pros: "Comfortable seats, nice staff, clean facilities"
Pros: "Nice helpful crew, plane was clean, arrived ahead of schedule"
Cons: "Nothing much"
Pros: "Horrible delay with unruly customers on the plane. But the flight attendants did great handling them"
Pros: "Boarding and crew were professional and courteous."
Cons: "Media interface system and Gogo inflight app are not synced and I could not listen to the movie I was watching. No subtitles offered for in flight movies. Someone farted before we deplaned and it was quite unpleasant. Also I wish the automatic seat assignments took my height into account."
Pros: "Seat was great, complimentary snacks and alcoholic beverage"
Cons: "It could have left on time or they could have told us they weren’t leaving and let us get some sleep."
Cons: "Stop being LATE!!!!"
Pros: "Very comfortable, great entertainment selection"
Pros: "Almost everything"
Cons: "Could not get entertainment interface with my tablet to work, especially since I paid extra to do so. Could not access live TV on my seat/chair screen."
Cons: "Terminal g18 is in the worst possible place. It is right smack in the middle of a food kiosk and restuarants with the ipad tables. You can't hear any announcements and boarding is just a cluster."
Cons: "6 hours late. Unacceptable."
Cons: "We had to wait at the customs for nearly 1.5hrs, then pick up our luggage, then check in again!!! We were running and got on the plane 10 mins before the departure. Super stressful!!"
Pros: "The people was relaxed and the flight attendant was polite and professional.. everything was on time"
Cons: "Nothing at all great service"
Pros: "I think they flew so fast. We could land almost on time even though we departed a hour late. Airplane was new and clean."
Cons: "Boarding was chaos. They overbooked 25? 45? Anyway, they are in panic. They tried to request ppl to take next day flight by giving away 300 gift card etc. the ppl who were told there are no seats upset and arguing at the gate. Flight was delayed for one hour. Once we are on airplane, they are still shuffling seats around, so ppl cannot move forward. Just standing there for 10mins waiting for things to settle. Flight attendants did not give us a headphone. (I have a headphone for iPhone X so I could not connect it to their entertaiment system.)"
Pros: "Smooth. Fast boarding"
Pros: "Everyone is working the gate and on the plane were amazing!"
Pros: "Everything went as smoothly as possible. Not a hiccup. Great price, great flight, great experience!"
Cons: "Both Virgin plans needed a deep cleaning."
Pros: "This was my cousins first time flying and the Flight Attendants made her feel very welcomed. They all were very personable."
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "The re route to MSP... Seven hour flight time for a two and half hour flight..."
Cons: "No Gluten free option"
Pros: "Entertainment system great. Individual choices include recent movies. On board staff very nice"
Cons: "We had issues with baggage. Delta was supposed to transfer 4 bags to Disney for Magic Express transportation. Only 3 went. Disney tried hard to fix problem, and even gave us something to ameliorate the situation. Delta took hard line, wasn't helpful and gave nothing. It took 2 days to find bag."
Cons: "Boarding was rushed and the crew barely announced the sections. It took an incredibly long time to bard the longest that I have ever experienced and I couldn't point to any reason why."
Pros: "Everything was in order"
Cons: "None really"
Pros: "The in flight movie and fast boarding"
Cons: "Couldn't get a receipt for baggage fee"
Cons: "My toddler daughter became ill before departure and the crew was awful. They failed to provide me with hardly anything besides 2 blankets and a few remoistened hand wipes to clean up vomit and was very rude when I asked to change seats, even though there were at least 8 other seats open on the flight."
Pros: "Service was outstanding"
Cons: "TV froze and was never fixed."
Cons: "Staff not attentive to customer needs. I asked for a blanket and the stewardess never came back to me."
Pros: "Amazing experience thank you Delta"
Pros: "Entertainment system is great."
Cons: "Every interaction with crew seemed dismissive and coerced. They behaved as if they didn't want to be there."
Pros: "Besides the 30 minute delay, the flight itself was painless. Avoided the traffic jam of having to drive through Hurricane traffic."
Cons: "Delay caused me late for work."
Cons: "Not supplying headphones Crew not to helpful, one unpolite Refreshments ridiculous"
Pros: "For the first time in a ling time I felt if I dropped something I didn't have to kiss it goodbye. My knees and back didn't hurt by the end of the fight. I know longer felt like a sardines in a tin."
Pros: "Short comfortable flight.. good entertainment to choose from."
Cons: "Everything was good with this flight.."
Pros: "From curbside check-in to landing the plane, overall excellent service ! Very pleased to find out they offered a shuttle from checkin to the gate. I am having knee surgery soon and the walk from security to gate 34 LaGuardia would have put me over the top with pain! It was a very nice gentleman that gave me a ride to the gate and even stopped to let me use the bathroom. Thumbs up *****"
Cons: "The fact that I was charged $150 to check a small cosmetics bag is no loose change ! I would have carried it on but my hand is in a brace and I has to have extensive surgery. Then yoy get to the gate, and they repeatedly asked for volunteers to check their bags for free. I think this is a very unfair policy and try to explain it to the curbside attendant. I literally cannot carry more than five pounds in my left hand until I get bone replacement surgery. I'm also having knee surgery soon and this small additional weight would be caused me excruciating pain ! They didn't care and still charged me $150 for a bag thats no bigger than 12 inches and weighs less than ten pounds. Thats the way you treat your first class passengers? One other quick note: the sausage and egg sandwich? that was served for breakfast was absolutely horrible! Thumbs down !"
Pros: "The crew is always great. I liked the environment was cooler. It doesn't need to be refrigerator cold but keeping things on the cooler side is helpful."
Cons: "The boarding process is always horrible. Folks crowd the gate before their class is called. It creates anxiety and edginess. Never a good way to start a trip. While it always goes relatively quickly I feel it should be more organized and folks made to follow a system. Cramming right up against the ticket counter doesn't do anyone any good."
Pros: "I fly Delta Airlines 2x a year and if I had to go on this flight experience alone I would never fly with them again. This particular flight attendant. Brunette who wore all red~ like she had a personal conflict with us from the moment we walked on the plane. We were sitting in the back and could hear the things that she was saying about my grandson and myself. She was rude, snotty, had a sassy mouth. I was COMPLETELY APPALLED as to the way we were treated by her. It was a long flight to have someone you felt was bullying you the whole flight to the moment we were exiting the plane. Karma will come back to her one day..."

Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "Confusing and chaotic boarding procedure"
Pros: "I liked the in-flight entertainment and the crew was very pleasant"
Cons: "The seats are awful. If you're 6 ft or taller, your legs barely fit if at all. Boarding is ridiculous."
Cons: "no legroom in a first class and expensive seat No entertainment"
The crew was very nice, 👍 We had it one food option.
Left 40 mins late and consequently missed a Lufthansa connection at Munich - which didn’t wait for a number of us. Pretty damned annoying
Same chicken dish twice on the same flight - not so good.
Both flights Mumbai to Frankurt and Frankfurt to Orlando Crew did not check person sitting to me not wearing their masks, masks hung around the neck and not on the nose and mouth! It was uncomfortable for me too even sit there as they chatted the whole time with the Crew and even tried to make conversation with me without mask! I thought Crew was responsible to check people! I ordered special veg meal, it was awful in taste, since I had just travelled same flights to India and was now returning exact same food, I requested if I could exchange for extra meal I was refused I landed up not eating anything! Crew had no courtesy to arrange anything for me in Business class, terrible while another couple siting there who refused to eat from menu food was arranged for them! I was so very disappointed, what's the point traveling Business when they kept me hungry! No masks on people, no food options, I was on 3 flights back to back slept most of time when I woke up they did not even care to offer drinks forget food...all this in Business class on Dec 9th.
Everything was excellent during the whole process from start to end. We will definitely travel Lufthansa again.
Pros: "Everything went well and pleasant."
Document check to verify our negative covid test was efficient. The supervisor at the Frankfurt gate to depart to SFO was not helpful when I asked with group I was boarding with. Dismissive and said it was on my pass. If it was on my pass I wouldn’t have needed to ask. Everything else about the flight was good- on time departure and good crew given circumstances with covid, masking etc.
Pros: "Fabulous service"
Cons: "Not a thing"
Cons: "Asked for ONE piece of bread, and such a big company. Didn’t have ONE piece of bread to provide. Shame. But not surprised, considering the focus they had with onboard shopping, cut coat, and generate revenue very oriented."
Pros: "The crew did their best, but the seats were very uncomfortable;.The food was uneatable."
Cons: "My luggage did not make it with me."
Pros: "The crew"
Cons: "The served dinner 45 minutes before landing, kind of a waste at that point, 2 hours before landing would have been better. Also, parents need to parent their children instead of letting them bother other travelers while they watch movies."
Pros: "Quick and easy flight decent cold sandwiches."
Pros: "Crew and food."
Cons: "Entertainment was ok."
Pros: "Pleasant crew"
Cons: "No complaints"
Cons: "There was an issue on the bus to take us to the teminal cuz a passenger took another's passenger's backpack which looked exactly the same but they made us wait on the bus til the mix up was settled. A lot of the passengers got frustrated cuz we had connecting flights and the workers by the plane didn't care including the bus driver. We finally went but we almost missed our flight .we had to literally run to the gate to make it."
Pros: "The free entertainment sections were good with recent movies. The planes were on schedule and I made all my connections which was great"
Cons: "The plane was older 747-400 but that is no excuse for the layers of dirt or dust on the air vents and ceilings. I actually took a photos and will be forwarding to Lufthansa. The couple in front of us actually took a wet wipe and wiped down there area and ceiling. Also the boarding process was a mess we actually were taken by bus to the aircraft that was at the freight depot and had to climb stairs to get on the 747. I’m not sure how they handle the passengers with mobility issues. First time flying with a European airline and I was told the service was better not on this flight."
Pros: "Great entertainment choices"
Cons: "Boarding by rows or areas would be better than the masses all at once after 1st class and business."
Pros: "Everything except boarding"
Cons: "Boarding process was incredibly disorganized"
Cons: "Delayed in plane almost an hour after landing before being allowed to deplane"
Pros: "Some of the food was hot Good movie selection Peesonal entertainment screen"
Cons: "Some food was not hot No extra breat was offered No air conditioning for most of the flight, ...disaster No earphones for the first hour and the last 30 min"
Cons: "It didn't happen"
Pros: "Crew and entertainment options"
Cons: "Passengers gathering against crew instructions. Large group behind me was loud and inconsiderate."
Pros: "Nice crew, good entertainment, efficient flight"
Cons: "Did not have my gluten free meal available, even thought it was requested with my ticket and confirmed. Made for a very hungry flight."
Pros: "Getting a text alert so I didn't waste my time going to the airport"
Cons: "The fact that Sunday morning my flight was cancelled Saturday night with no apparent reason or explanation given."
Pros: "Everything as expected"
Pros: "Good service on plane seats weren't bad."
Cons: "Entertainment system kept not working. Terrible baggage wait in Orlando. Over 30 minutes after I cleared customs Flight was late over 30 minutes"
Cons: "The flight was 100 percent full. So it was very difficult to move around. And on a 10 hour flight that is tough."
Pros: "overall good flight"
Cons: "5 hours delay in take off from frankfurt. reason - ice on plane wings. snow in frankfurt is not uncommon, and lufthansa needs 5 hours to clear ice? and why board people in the plane when you know you can't fly ?"
Pros: "The entire crew were very friendly and helpful to ensure a comfortable flying experience. This crew went above and beyond my expectations for this flight. The true meaning of hospitality of service for flight travel."
Pros: "Great service and amenities!"
Pros: "Nice service, nice staff"
Cons: "The food becoming worse and worse each time.. I think it is better to Lufthansa to reduce price of the ticket and do not serve such kind of burgers.. Or improve the quality of food if they still positioning as the one of the best airlines."
Pros: "Excellent, travel only with LH"
Cons: "The plane was a very noisy on take off."
Pros: "Im very happy with the costumer service of lufhtanza my mom who doesn't speak English or german flew for the first time with luftanza and she said the staff were helpful and she was satisfied with the service"
Pros: "Not much. Pretty miserable round tip MCO-FRA-DXB-FRA-MCO."
Cons: "747 Economy seating a nightmare. No leg room especially when the seat in front goes to full recline. Had to use reading glasses to see video screen. Entertainment selections limited compared to other airlines in the trans-Atlantic market. Food bland, borderline edible. Cabin crew just going through the motions. Not at all friendly. Won't fly Lufthansa again."
Pros: "Very good experience. Good movies."
Cons: "The LH reward program is not very user friendly."
Pros: "on time great food extra legroom seat"
Cons: "movies sucked"
Pros: "Lufthansa seems to have friendlier more helpful customer service than does Webjet's customer service."
Cons: "Webjet customer service didn't seem very friendly or concerned about helping to request fees waived from themselves and Lufthansa."
Pros: "Service was good"
Cons: "Cancelled my original flight for unknown reason, and never sent notification via email or phone."
Pros: "THE ONLY ISSUE I HAVE WITH LIFTHANSA IS THEY DID NOT PAY FOR MY FRAIGHT THAT WAS DAMAGED. THEY PAID FOR THE BAGGAGE BUT THEY DID NOT PAY FOR PART OF THE PERSONAL EFFECT BELONGING INSIDE THE BAGGAGE. THAT WAS ESTIMATED TO BE $500.00 ACCORDING TO MY REPORT THE DAY I ARRIVED AT ORLANDO INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT. THE CUSTOMER SERVICE AT ORLANDO AIRPORT SETTLED FOR MY BAGGAGE NOT FOR THE CONTENT INSIDE THE BAGGAGE, ALSO, GIVE ME EMAIL ADDRESSED TO SEND MY CLAIM THAT WAS NOT DELIVERED.iTS WILL BE APPRECIATED IF THE CHECK FOR $ 500.00 CAN BE MAIL TO MY ADDRESS : CHARLES MAKINDE, 7631 FORT SUMTER DRIVE,ORLANDO, FLORIDA 32822. OR FOR ADDITIONAL INFORMATION PLEASE EMAIL ME AT CHARLESMAKINDE@GMAIL .COM. WHILE I THANK YOU FOR COOPERATION. CHARLES MAKINDE"
Pros: "Crew, food and enterteintment were good"
Cons: "Boarding was to messy, sits were extremely tight, cabin was too warm and sits does not reclined enough to make a comfortable sleep time"
Cons: "Customer service and seats extra small. Partner airline Swiss is probably worst airline ever"
Pros: "Everything was efficient and the somewhat long flight was easy because of food and entertainment. (Saw a really good Japanese film with subtitles)"
Cons: "Incorrect gate given for this flight, connecting flight was a little late. Everything was fairly quickly corrected."
Pros: "Great crews, great amenities, good food. Best flights I've been on in a long time."
Cons: "Economy seats are tough after 10 hours. But thats what I paid for so no issues."
Pros: "Flughts departed and arrived on time, food was impressive, flight attendants were friendly and attentive and good on-board entertainment"
Cons: "AUSTRIA AIRLINES, (YOUR OTHER COMPANY), WENT THRU MY BAG IN O'HARE, FLIGHT 66 TO VIENNA. THEY TOOK OUT ALL OF MY HOUSE, AND CAR KEYS , AND MY REMOTE CONTROL FOR MY PICKUP, (ALL ON ONE RING), AND DID N O T PUT THEM BACK INTO MY BAG. I WILL N E V E R FLY AUSTRIA AIRLINES, OR LUFTHANSA AGAIN! I SENT AN EMAIL TO YOUR CUSTOMER RELATIONS DEPT...customer.services@lufthansa 3 times and they failed delivery."
Pros: "Attitude, attitude, attitude...when it's positive and customer friendly it shines...this depicts my experience on all of my Lufthansa flights concerning the cabin crew(s). Smiling faces genuinely concerned about the passenger experience aboard the aircraft. In contrast, on a previous International flight via a US based carrier...there too was lots of cabin crew attitude...but not the pleasant type."
A heads up on filling in an e-ticket prior to flight departure would have been helpful.
New 737 and seats too confining
Pros: "The seats were so comfortable"
Pros: "The crew from Kili to DarEsSalam was tired. A fresh crew worked from DarEsSalam to AMS and they were great."
Cons: "The boarding process was chaotic. The passengers in the first boarding group had to fight through the crowd because there were no boarding lanes."
Pros: "Terrific hot breakfast in bus. class"
Cons: "Window did not darken like the others."
Cons: "Boarding at Florence is always chaotic but this isn't within the control of KLM or their crew."
Pros: "15 years ago I told myself not to fly Delta anymore. But these 2 flights Detroit to Amsterdam and back changed my mind. I enjoyed the flight very much and I'm looking forward to the next one."
Pros: "Loved the smooth ride."
Cons: "Bathroom was pretty nasty"
Cons: "The KLM crew are always great serving and treating you. Well above many other airlines."
Pros: "The bed was comfortable. Entertainment selection and large TV screen was good. The KLM crew is amazing, as usual."
Cons: "Food quality was not so good."
Pros: "Crew was amazing. They adjusted the seating arrangements so there was an empty seat in every row to give passengers more space. Very thoughtful and much appreciated. They served delicious meals, snacks, and water. They provided headphones, blankets and pillows. They took very good care of us."
Cons: "This was just a short commuter flight from Lyon to Amsterdam for connection."
Pros: "The crew"
Cons: "Seat comfort"
Cons: "We had 4 hour delay causing a stop over at 3am. So yeah"
Cons: "Long haul flight made pleasant by KLM"
Pros: "My seat at the window was great and the staff really friendly and courteous!"
Cons: "Need more leg room!!! Larger meals needed."
Cons: "Inflight was better than I expected. But needs upgrading air crafts."
Cons: "None of our 4 checked bags arrived with us. This was despite ample connection time (2+ hours) in Amsterdam."
Pros: "Gaps between seats are very narrow."
Cons: "when serving drinks, cabin crew limited to serve liquor only once and it was poor service."
Pros: "Amsterdam airport and Rome airport were as breeze to navigate, even only knowing English"
Cons: "Still waiting to board after missing this connection had to be booked on another airline"
Pros: "Friendly crew."
Cons: "So many people on a 747!!"
Pros: "kLM staff was great."
Pros: "She was cheerful and genuine. I have dietary restrictions but was unable to preorder a meal. She went out of her way to find an available meal for me. I also saw her bring other passengers extra snacks and drinks."
Cons: "Cramped seating."
Cons: "Our total flight time was about 17 hours - MAD- AMS-LAX. My husband and I both have an internationally approved carry on luggages with us. When we checked in - they asked us to both check in our carry on luggage. The reason why is because they said they don’t think they have enough space for our carry ons. I told the crew member checking us in that other people that was checking in with the same hand carry size luggage with us had no problems taking it with them. For being about to be on a 17 HOUR FLIGHT we should be ALLOWED to have our carry ons with us! We take carry ons for that reason! I had to argue and prove my case to the crew member to atleast keep 1 carry on with us. I thought that was an UNACCEPTABLE reason for us to check in a carry on luggage when we had a 17 hour travel time ahead of us. Not a happy costumer here."
Pros: "Good Experience"
Cons: "Nothing much"
Pros: "Good information and helpfil boarding."
Cons: "Has to wait in confined area fir nearly 2 hrs before boarding. No restroom or refreshments within that area."
Pros: "All cabin crew were courteous. Refreshments were light. Check stuff were helpful, they did devise that the flight was full and due to space hand luggage would prefer to be put in hold free of charge. We did not have any problem with this. Plane was clean."
Cons: "Service was a little slow going through the gate, it seemed to take a while for everyone to get on board."
Pros: "Flight crew; legroom even in cheap seats."
Cons: "Exceptionally unhelpful customer service when asking about extra kilos/bags. Just quoted the online info back at us. We simply wanted to know how much would be charged if the bag was 1-2kgs overweight. We could not get a straight answer, just quoted the unclear company policy. Extremely frustrating and annoying. KLM offer a superior flight experience - it is a shame their terrestrial customer servic does not match it!"
Pros: "Service provided by the staff"
Cons: "The navigation of the entertainment system is not very friendly"
Pros: "Good multi media access and content"
Pros: "Great food"
Cons: "Sears we're toooo small"
Pros: "Of the multiple international airlines I recently flew with, I would have to say KLM was by far the best. Relaxing atmosphere, comfortable seating, great in-flight entertainment, although I have the go-go in-flight data/entertainment plan with t-mobile (highly recommended), the flight included a decent selection of movies, television programs, etc. The food far exceeded typical "airline quality," even for an international flight - and included a fabulous little snack box with locally sourced gourmet and specialty items such as chocolate from Belgium, fine cheeses from France, and crackers from England. Drinks = gratis, and crew was exceptionally attentive and went out of their way to make flight as pleasant as possible."
Pros: "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: "great choice of entertainment content, friendly crew"
Cons: "Flight from Amsterdam was 2 hours late. Caused me to miss connection on train from London to Leeds which then cost me 124 pounds to rebook. No information was forthcoming at all at the airport and there were 3 different departure times given. Absolute chaos. The airline is a joke"
Pros: "Very good flight, excellent service and good food."
Pros: "Service was good"
Pros: "Very friendly and the food and drinks never stopped and no additional charges, a very nice experience over the bargain airlines, free in-flight movies, and entertainment, no cost."
Cons: "No complaints."
Cons: "The crew on the Lagos Amsterdam route (in economy) are particularly unfriendly and brusque. This is my experience each time i fly this route in economy"
Pros: "Except for my negative comment, a good flight."
Cons: "I paid extra for a window seat, but due to the poor alignment of the seats with the actual windows, I actually sat next to a wall! Nol much to see out of a wall. If KLM are going to charge extra for a window seat, then they should make sure there is a window there! If the seat had actually had a window it would have been an excellent flight."
Pros: "On time."
Cons: "Claiming that the plane was completely full (which it wasn't), They forced just about everyone to check there carry ons. When we got on board, there was plenty of overhead space. Supposedly, we should've have been allowed a carryon and a personal item."
Seat could have been cleaned better
Seat next to me was vacant, so I had more room. Flight from Dublin to Orlando was delayed at start over one hour because the plane had not been serviced or fueled. Staff was very helpful and pleasant. Food was poor and complimentary snack and fluids were minuscule.
Cons: "Seat could have been a little more comfortable, but overall it was fine."
Pros: "Seats were comfortable. The blankets and pillow were an amazing addition and made the flight more comfortable."
Cons: "Would have enjoyed free WiFi"
Pros: "Fast moving to baggage claim area."
Cons: "All food and beverages had to be bought"
Pros: "Hostess were helpful and friendly"
Cons: "Middle seat in first row and my bag half way down the plane so although I could’ve been first off I was in actual effect the very last."
Pros: "Seat was fine ! I was very thirsty and no free water.."
Cons: "Free drink/ water !!!"
Pros: "The entertainment was great."
Cons: "It was hard coming home since we can't bring any food with meat on the international flight coming back to the USA. Or at least the food I brought, a sandwich was not allowed because of customs. I can't eat the food that was offered. I'm glutten intolerant and dairy involerant. Not sure there's a whole lot to do about it besides buy prepackaged food that don't have meat, vegtabjes or fruit. Protien bars may have worked. We brought two bottles of water each from the terminal. I could have used more, even with the drink service. The flight attendants we're having thier own personal conversation while passing out food and ran by when it came to the final trash clean up. When I got up to use the facilities I tried throwing my trash away but was ignored by a crew member while she was resting."
Pros: "Very professional crew, super tight seats and not much room under seat, so very cramped for 8.5 hour flight"
Cons: "I was at the airport 4 hours early- no connections. They still managed to lose my bag. I don’t live near an airport. It added 2 hours to a long trip to wait for it, then wait with others to fill out papers when it didn’t show up."
Pros: "Check in was great. On board crew was excellent and very attentive. Many offerings of drinks and food."
Cons: "Boarding was chaotic, free for all situation. Signage could have been better at the gate. One of the TV viewers/overhead lights didn’t work for our party. There was a large chatty group of people that were milling around, standing in aisle, talking loudly for much of the flight. I understand that there is only so much the crew could do about that."
Pros: "Lights were on for the initial meal but relaxed for light breakfast snack."
Cons: "Cramped space and seats very uncomfortable. Terminal two not great either"
Pros: "I got home safely. Got some food long flight."
Cons: "Gate announcer called for priority board and section beyond. Before adequately completed called for next section of rows to board. Those rude people crammed into the incomplete boarding line previously announced. Yes, we have assigned seats but overhead luggage often ends up way forward of rearward owners leaving forward passengers no place for convenient overhead storage. The cabin wait staff is ill trained for customer service. They seemed to only have requirements to check off on a list. We will likely make every attempt to not fly your airlines again."
Pros: "On time and friendly"
Pros: "The mechanical issue with flaps was fixed - glad to arrive home safely."
Cons: "Flight was delayed three hours due to a mechanical poblem . We were offered one free drink."
Pros: "Boarding was very quick"
Cons: "Non-alcoholic drinks should be free on the flight."
Pros: "underbooked flight, so there was lots of room. Seatback tvs with good selection of movies and tv."
Cons: "lack of USB chargers. lack of fish option for a flight out of a catholic country on a friday during lent."
Cons: "My flight was cancelled approximately 36 hours before departure. Neither Aer Lingus not the booking agency Justfly.com informed me. I discovered this as I was about to leave for airport. Neither could help me to book a new flight. Justfly.com didn't see that the flight was cancelled because Aer Lingus did not inform them. I had to go to the airport and spend 8 hours in line at the ticket desk to get a new flight the next day, in addition to 2 hours spent on the phone. Had these companies done their jobs properly, I could have rescheduled my flight days earlier on the phone and not wasted an entire day of my vacation. When I asked Justfly.com for any form of compensation they refused. Will NEVER fly on this airline or book travel thru Justfly.com again."
Pros: "Flew business class for the first time with Aer Lingus. The crew are friendly and helpful. The food on board was top quality."
Cons: "The lie flat seats in business class are not very comfortable. Especially in the straight up position. The entertainment system is pretty bad and the choice of movies, tv etc is very poor. The complimentary WiFi only worked occasionally. Can not understand how Aer Lingus claim to be a 4* airline."
Pros: "The actual flight"
Cons: "Food and comfort. Seats too small and no leg room."
Pros: "Nice seats food was decent crew excellent"
Cons: "Not enough room"
Pros: "The plane was just fantastic: comfortable, elegant, quiet. Gets the best note!"
Cons: "A free coffee - which was excellent by the way - and a little roll would have been nice."
Pros: "Even if Aer LIngus is considered a low cost, I felt it was everything but that. The plane looked new, the board computers were modern and had the latest movies, there were charging docks for phones and even internet. We got to Orlando 30 minutes ahead of schedule, which was great!"
Pros: "Pilot told us the flight plan"
Pros: "Flight was on time."
Cons: "Terminals were too far apart. Long walk to get to security. Too many repetitive checkpoints."
Cons: "Too cold on the plane"
Pros: "I loved the timeliness of the food service, and the options available for beverage service. The selection of movies and music available on the TV screen in the seat back was great, and allowed the time on the long plane ride to pass a little faster. The captain was extremely informative, about our flight path, the wind conditions, weather at our destination, etc. I particularly enjoyed the information he provided, because on some flights, you rarely hear from the person flying the plane."
Cons: "The boarding process was interesting: those that needed assistance and business class 1st (understood), but then front of the plane, back of the plane, and finally the middle. I don't feel this made things go any faster - we still waited in line for quite some time in the jetway. I don't understand having front, back, and middle. Just let all economy get in line, or do something efficient like load the window seats first, the aisle, and for the seats in the middle of the plane, have the middle seats load 1st, and then the aisle seats. Seats got uncomfortable during the flight. Also, the person in front of me reclined ALL the way, so the top of her seat was only a few inches in my face. Most flights I have been on don't allow the seats to recline that far. I could barely get out of my seat to get up and go to the bathroom."
Pros: "The crew"
Cons: "Food not good , entertainment system old un updated and slow"
Cons: "Would like to be at least able to state a seat preference. With a tendency to be claustrophobic, a middle seat is the worst. Fortunately it was a short flight"
Pros: "Why are they flight atendants. So nasty"
Pros: "Seats comfortable even with my disabilities."
Cons: "Assistance seats all taken by able bodies. No room for disabled. Not enuf staff for volume of disabled rendering a delay to our flight E1 273."
Pros: "the service was very friendly and the food was very good. Checking in was easy and they were very helpful."
Cons: "the only complaint I have is that on the info page on the screens the maps doesnt work."
Pros: "Entertaining TV options"
Cons: "Did not have enough GF food options. So I went without a meal."
Pros: "The staff and entertainment onboard were great and soft nee blankets provided as well as decent food."
Cons: "The inefficient boarding caused the flight to be delayed on takeoff and thus missing our gate on landing requiring us fo sit on the tarmac for and extensive amount of time."
Cons: "It was delayed, stewardess not friendly"
Pros: "Unacceptable never again will I recommend you"
Cons: "Utterly unprofessional"
Cons: "Not able to ceheck in on line and then was put on standby for a ticket I purchased in January. Others in my party got their seats at the airport when they checked in. Two of us were put on standby. Food had a problem with coordinating serving and there were few liquids offered for an overseas flight where it is important to stay hydrated. One liquid with each meal. If I had known I would have bought water at the airport before boarding."
Pros: "Louise (on Aerlingus) was a tremendous help to me throughout the flight. Kind, welcoming, and professional. It was because of her service that I am giving my flight as high of a review as I am."
Cons: "My seat cushion was so worn down that I felt like I spent the flight against two boards."
Pros: "Have traveled many long haul flights with various airlines in past 6 months. The Aer Lingus food was significantly better than the others. Very tasty."
Cons: "Not enough seating at gate in Dublin and the space needs updating. A complimentary beer or wine with the meals, as provided by other carriers, would be nice."
Pros: "Aircrew was good."
Cons: "I never realized that Aer Lingus was actually a budget airline until I flew them. Price was right, but lack of leg room and things like charging for things other airlines do not, should be factored in when choosing them. There was a 2.5 hour delay and I think that passengers should have received some compensation for that. A voucher or at least a free drink, nada."
Pros: "Boarding was quick and efficient, the flight arrived 10 minutes early."
Cons: "There was no food or entertainment offered, aside from what you could purchase. But as it was a very short flight, this didn't make much of a difference for me. Overall, good short flight."
Pros: "Nice entertainment system on seat backs with USB charger on the Dublin-Newark leg."
Cons: "Aer Lingus partners with UNITED for the Newark-Orlando leg. Flight was overbooked by 20 people and another 20 were on standby. My luggage didn't travel with me so it didn't arrive in Orlando when I did. I was fortunate that it made the next flight so I only had to wait an hour. Some fellow Irish passengers weren't so lucky."
Cons: "Delay after delay for hours and hours, and not even complimentary wine and beer like other airlines. Finally we're provided with a meal voucher after every restaurant in the terminal had already closed"
Pros: "very attentive staff!"
Pros: "On a long flight, it was great having an empty seat between me (window) and the other passenger in my row (aisle), especially given that I paid an extra $55 for my seat.. ( I do need to add, however, that 5-6 hours into the flight, a passenger two rows back became ill which required that the row be vacated so I ended up with a young woman sitting in the middle seat next to me who announced that she was sick -- and looked that way.)"
Cons: "Food was really poor. Other airlines do a much better job! Also, it would have been nice to have had the kind of curved headrest that makes it easier to sleep, especially on a long flight. The short flight from Dublin to Alicante offered this kind of headrest."
Cons: "There was no complimentary food at all not to mention about baverages and hot drinks. Te flight was pretty long, almost 3 hrs so I was expecting litlle bit more, especially after 8 hrs connecting flight."
Pros: "The crew was friendly."
Cons: "After the main meal there was a four hour gap before any refreshments were offered, just an hour before landing. For an 8 1/2 hour trip, water should. E offered every two hours!!"
Cons: "For return flight they changed us to a Virgin flight, but we didn't find out until we reached the airport. Email or text would've been appropriate."
Pros: "Due to the long flight we flew Business Class to Dublin. I think the service and amenities are the finest of any flight that I've had foreign or domestic. I wasn't that familiar with Aer LIngus before this flight but will definitely use them again."
BA is just Ryanair with better livery.
Security at BER was painfully slow, the staff just didn't seem in interested. The Swissport boarding agents were also rude.
BA finally had an efficient boarding process regarding COVID testing documents etc. They checked these docs during baggage drop and check-in (yay!) and then made sure baggage was placed on the same airplane as the owner (yay again!) the flight staff was friendly and helpful as usual and the flight was basically on time this go-round (another yay!)
I fly British Airways because they have convenient timings not because I’m expecting competence or comfort. Typically mediocre check in speed and flight punctuality. Old and tired planes. Oh well hopefully more choice will open up soon. And then it’s goodbye BA.
Delayed flight, no information as to why, more standing on the runway with no information and after landing, more delays with security gates not working. Just a shambles, lack of communication and lack of customer care.
Pros: "The crew was great, as always. Unfortunately, my seat mate was very overweight, pushing into my space. No fault of BA except that bigger seats would help the "growing" population of travelers."
Cons: "Bigger seats for bigger travelers. Especially on long flights. Those of us that are less full figured would be more comfortable. Go back to the system that includes one checked bag and one carry on as included in the advertised price. I know that airlines need to be more competitive, but the ala carte for luggage is not acceptable. Instead, offer an opportunity for customers t donate to offset the carbon impact. Thanks"
Pros: "The overall experience was great! I was extremely satisfied. I thought the crew was very kind and the extra touch of bringing ice cream to everyone as a treat was perfect for our family that had to restless little boys."
Cons: "I did find it strange that the only brought the drink cart around once during the 9 & 1/2 hour flight. It was a cost savings approach more than anything. For the crew, I am sure it was also a time savings approach. When going to find another drink, it was clear supplies were also thinning out."
Cons: "The plane delayed by 30 minutes, I was rushed past security to wrong plane in Orlando, making me miss my flight, cue multiple times as the airlines "British Airways" and "American Airlines" bickered about who's fault it was. I'm still sat in Orlando waiting for my flight after losing my hotel in LA"
Cons: "Delayed, ended up missing connection. Still not arrived at destination. Will end up being an 8 hour delay!"
Pros: "Check In went fast, getting through security was also fast. The price was excellent."
Cons: "Small seat, did not recline fully but it was an economy ticket."
Pros: "Perfect flight"
Cons: "Been perfect"
Cons: "This flight was run by American Airlines. A new aircraft and a wonderful crew."
Cons: "Better business class seats"
Pros: "Crew were very friendly"
Cons: "The aircraft was 21 years old and showed every minute of its 21 years. Economy class is very bunched. On board food was average at best"
Cons: "Old aircraft, which wasn’t clean"
Cons: "they have increased the layover time"
Pros: "Seat comfortable, Crew was great."
Cons: "The guy in front of me pushed his seat back and the space was reduced dramatically, even for lunch. Screen was not so good, but pprobably enough"
Cons: "Flight delayed for 2 hours at the gate. Crew clueless about how to serve the food. Poor old BA. I remember them when they were good!"
Pros: "The crew was friendly and the food was good."
Cons: "Being on a plane for 9 hours in those small seats with no leg room is not pleasant, but I don't guess that will ever change. Also, no music to listen to other than United Kingdom bands I never heard of...I tried some... not my thing. Would like to have had some classic rock options, British or otherwise."
Pros: "Flight was safe. Pilots did fine job."
Cons: "Plane was filthy. Crew did not collect rubbish throughout the flight except once immediately after each meal service. I went to the back to throw away my and my seat mate's rubbish, bins were overflowing and untidy. seemed to put out crew members when I asked for a cup with ice."
Cons: "The plan from Philadelphia to Amsterdam didn't have the normal TV screens in the seats ahead of the passengers, which meant we all had one show to watch. :("
Pros: "Food !!the services"
Cons: "The seats not very good and the tv screen"
Pros: "The orderly manner in boarding & customer service"
Cons: "Everything was great"
Pros: "Great service, good / plentiful food, lots of entertainment options."
Cons: "No outlet / USB to plug in my phone or computer."
Pros: "Loved everything about this flight great complimentary food options"
Pros: "The food, the entertainment and the staff was super friendly"
Cons: "The seats should be more comfortable for such a long flight"
Pros: "Gatwick is very well organized, making the boarding process very smooth. The flight to Amsterdam is short - only an hour. And the crew was friendly and efficient."
Pros: "It was on American ticked through BA"
Cons: "In flight service needs to be improved"
Pros: "Good attitudes"
Pros: "staff friendly."
Cons: "seat broken, screen broken. When fixed the choice of movies was very limited. In seat power not working, so couldn't work after battery exhausted. Flight attendants were all friendly but didn't respond to call button or other requests."
Cons: "I booked a regular flight and at the end the system or dont know how, booked me PLUS ECONOMY, when I wanted to change my ticket date, it was so expensive and almost no dates were available. Also, you didnt give me chance to downgrade in order to change the dates more easily. I always fly through BA and I love the easy it is to change dates, but this time you disappointed me. I usualy choose BA because its easy and non expensive to change dates in my flight but now I may be open to book with other airlines."
Pros: "see above"
Cons: "see above"
Pros: "Staff, service, punctual everything superb!!!!"
Pros: "Ok food."
Cons: "Horrible flight from a comfort standpoint."
Cons: "Plane was very old and my seat was very out of condition and uncomfortable.... also ordered a gluten free meal which the main meal was fine but the 2nd meal was 2 packets of raisins!! Where as everybody else got a sandwich and snack!"
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Not a thing"
Cons: "Booked 6 exit row seats only to have half of us moved. Somehow Cyprus is short haul? So no free soft drinks or food! The crew ran out of much of the menu."
Pros: "A great crew member or more can make a flight so much better."
Cons: "Update your entertainment systems. Head jack was broken and system old."
Pros: "I appreciated to entertainment choices. Also the crew came through with water and fruit juice frequently, very nice"
Pros: "The in-flight service was great!"
Pros: "Nothing good to say its an old plane, rubbish entertainment system no help by the British airway's staff not even in checkin when my girlfriend struggled to weigh bag the staff just looked and offered no assistance. Hardly came round to offer drinks meal was foul and the Sandwick was inedible. I will never fly British airways again I wrongly thought that they were a premier service how wrong was I"
Pros: "Not much to like. The crew was very good and flight was smooth."
Cons: "Food was terrible and seats were very uncomfortable. If you are over 6 feet tall you will not be comfortable."
Cons: "I don't get no dinner on the flight from Miami to London Heathrow and I felt faint from hunger on board. When I complain to one of the flight crew ,we one hour and forty five minutes left to land,she gave me a pretzel bunch and a cup of tea."
Pros: "Arrived on time"
Cons: "We paid $85 each to have extra leg room - which were horrible seats near the toilet. Which became a gathering area and we were unable to sleep/watch movie in peace. Worst of all was the fact that someone was sick in the toilet (inside and out) the toilet was closed BUT no sign is placed on it so people continue to line up and wait..... unless I told them it was not in use.... this went on for 2 hours!!! A simple sigh on the door was all it needed."
Cons: "We sat at the gate after landing door at least 30 minutes waiting for cargo to be unloaded to keep the plane center of gravity within the correct tolerance. This was especially painful after such a long flight."
Pros: "Boarding was smooth, the attendants attendant, the food surprisingly good, and the entertainment outstanding. An entire library of in-flight movies, a display of where your flight is in the world, a few in-lfight games and even an in-flight chatroom."
Cons: "A few times, I feel like the attendants either didn't notice me."
Cons: "Still at Gatwick. 24 hours later"
