She then made my flight a nightmare, until I let her sit in my aisle seat. Even then she was not satisfied, she abused me the whole flight damaged the screen so I could not use it until the steward fixed it. Demanded that I except any and all alcohol to give to her to drink. When I am tea total she then continued to abuse me. I asked the steward to move me he just shrugged his shoulders and said there was nowhere else. This is definitely my the worst flight I have experienced."
Pros: "The service"
Cons: "The seats"
Pros: "Shirt flight but well catered, boarding was efficient and quick."

Pros: "I slept pretty much the whole time"
Pros: "Arrived early!"
Cons: "Boarding seemed disorganized."
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: "Boarding was very confusing. There was an area where they were checking people's bags or something near the gate and you didn't know if you needed to stop at it or continue. They didn't collect garbage before landing. Not only did we have to take our bags off the plane, we had to carry our garbage (drink cups/food served) to the front of the plane to throw out."
Pros: "I enjoyed the attention to detail and comfort. Helped to make the flight easier to handle."
Cons: "... ear plugs, masks, good food or even picking seats? I remember when it was all complementary and standard on overnight flights. Oh, and the vegetarian breakfast was unfortunately poor as well. I know you can do better, because you used to."
Pros: "On both of my flights to New York City, I was amazed at how friendly and helpful the flight attendants were to the passengers. On my short flight from Basel to Amsterdam, a young French speaking girl was concerned about how to manage getting to her next gate. The flight attendants talked to her and arranged for someone to take her there. On my longer flight from Amsterdam to New York City, there was a customer who was in distress about missing a previous flight and not making it to her connecting flight in New York. One of the flight attendants reassured her until she stopped crying and calmed down. That same flight attendant was always so positive and cheerful in all she did. The rest of the crew was top notch. This was my best experience flying in such a long time. Well done, KLM crews of flights 1984 and 0645 on July 10!"
Pros: "The staff the facilities the food all ******. Will definetly look forward to choose both delta and KLM"
Cons: "Amesterdam airport employee was really rude"
Cons: "KLM crews look unhappy with their work. Everything they do is a favor not duty."
Pros: "Crew good flight was fine apart from delay due to fog in Amsterdam but kept informed"
Cons: "Flight was delayed due to weather in Amsterdam area"
Pros: "Flight was delayed for three hours and was a very stressful flight"
Cons: "Flight was not on time and got to destination very very late pier management of aircrafts"
Cons: "Without any explanation the plane I was due to go to Istanbul on at 11.30 was not available. I had to wait for a small plane coming from Edinburgh then wait for it to be emptied of passengers and cleaned. This meant we were over 2 hours late into Istanbul. No explanation or apology. I then missed my next flight in Istanbul and had to purchase another ticket. I cannot believe that air passengers are treated in this way!!! I will follow this up with KLM when I go home from my holiday."
Pros: "The included snacks and the seats."
Cons: "suitcase didn't turn up, although connection was quite tight"
Cons: "Our flight was canceled from Amsterdam to Bordeaux and did not receive any direction and had to find alternate flights for ourselves with the personal expense of using our own cell phones. Then our luggage lost for 3 days. Not happy!"
Cons: "Only one queue for boarding. Flight late on arrival."
Pros: "Fortunately, the plane was not full, so people could spread out a bit to create extra room. The food was really good! (surprisingly)."
Cons: "KLM's new configuration for this type of plane made the seats even narrower than before. While leg room was reasonable, the 3 abreast seating meant a lot of discomfort, especially in the row right in front of the restroom."
Pros: "Speed, crew, and reliablity."
Cons: "Food wasn't good, no entertainment or accessory plug ins, and seats were worn out! Not comfortable at all. Great leg room though."
Pros: "Same as above"
Pros: "The cabin crew were fantastic and funny"
Cons: "Tiny seats"
Cons: "Flight delayed ... Myself and three other colleagues didn't have our luggage show up from KLM flight from Amsterdam to Brussels...even though all of our luggage was labeled "priority". Once in customer service line, we looked and saw that many of the other passengers on our flight also never received their luggage. We estimated that 20-25% of the people on that flight did not receive their luggage as they were in line with us for the same problem. Hard to understand how so many pieces of luggage could have been overlooked and not loaded on our flight. Obviously there is a huge gap in their quality system to ensure mistakes like this are prevented."
Pros: "Much more civilised for the same cost (or less) as the budget carriers. Proper food and drinks included as is the norm with international flights even though it's a very short haul."
Cons: "The stinky guy behind me, but that's not the airline's fault."
Pros: "Even for this short flight, drinks and sandwich was provided staff were efficient and friendly"
Pros: "Average service and food quality"
Cons: "Inside the business class cabin Boeing 777 only one toilet facility available. People is queuing."
"[ ] Chaotic is an understatement! I was flying from Helsinki to Los Angeles via Stockholm and eventhough I booked everything directly thru finnair, they gave me only 35 min to change planes that required crossing accross terminal 5 and going thru customs. I asked helped to different staff multiple times and no one cared. Finally when I made it to the gate the flight had been delayed because finnair did the same thing to other flights yet the app and website never updated. Finnair made several of us think we had missed our flight! [ ] Then when I got to the gate, the staff checked all of my documents again eventhough I had been checked in Finland less than 2 hrs before. If you fly with Finnair get ready for chaos. [ ] Messy online presence. Too many emails saying the same thing but hard to find relevant information (for example, I couldn't find any information about the trip from Stockholm to LAX) [ ] they provide the option to check in online and tag your bags at the airport but then have no bag drop line at some airports. [ ] Luggage information in Helsinki was never clear and caused us to step out and have to ring the doorbell to get our bags. It took forever for someone to open the door. [ ] Staff are careless about customer comfort. In rovaniemi, we had to board thru the tarmac and the attendants didn't care that people had to wait outdoor on freezing temperatures while the passengers were taking forever to put in their luggage and sit down. [ ] the only positive is that the airplanes are in good condition."
"What a great flight. Would do it again without question."
Pros: "Free movies"
Cons: "Free wifi. Better movie selection"
Cons: "Surprised to find out that there was no rock/metal playlist available within music menu, considering that Finnish artists/bands are famous worldwide and very proficient in this genre."

Cons: "Food a bit bland and uninspired"
Pros: "The crew were professional and courteous"
Cons: "Nothing, as it’s a short flight!"
Pros: "Finnair cabin/seats, clean, quiet and comfortable airport in Helsinki"
Cons: "Not only the first flight got delayed for over 2 hours. I had to re-book the second - connecting - flight because of that. Now it made my layover instead of 1 h 45 m - 5 hours! Then the second flight got delayed!! So instead of 5 hours layover it was over 7 hours!!! Very inconvenient and upsetting experience. The only reason I booked these particular flights is because they were advertized as "the shortest trip" time on your website..."
Pros: "All good, especiallly cabin crew who appear to actually enjoy their jobs and interacting with passenger (unlike some supposedly premium carriers)."

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!"
Pros: "Crew is very nice and helpful. Food is just fine. Serving complimentary white and red wine."
Cons: "Seats are too close and not enough space for my legs. I am 187 (6'2"). No outlets to charge your phone. For me it is important on the long flight."
Pros: "I was very satisfied by the flights by Finnair - kind personnel, good food, on time flights."
Cons: "They run out of food choices by the time they got to me."
Pros: "The flight was very fast, boarding and getting off were fast and convenient. They had a new Korean movie that I've been wanting to see but didn't expect would be offered on an airline, so that was great!"
Cons: "The crew seemed quite stressed, when I asked to store my wedding dress in the crew closet they were very short with me, which made me feel really guilty about it, as the stewardess obviously thought I was very troublesome, but they did allow it. The food was quite bland. The entertainment was much more limited than most international flight lines."
Pros: "рейсы точно по расписанию, без задержек, персонал внимателный"
Cons: "заказала и оплатила билеты за 4 месяца до перелета, а получила место в самолпте на самом последнем ряду у туалета"
Pros: "All was great!"
Cons: "Not that I did not like it but it was more like a surprise to me to have not seen a single Finnish in the crew ... Again, nothing wrong, simple surprising..."
Pros: "Flight was not packed, plenty of overhead space and seamless boarding process getting on. Crew was attentive. Food not bad."
Cons: "Entertainment selection was very poor and I sat there bored. Plane seemed a little old."
Pros: "Movie selection ok."
Cons: "Minimal coach legreeom even for an average-height passenger."
Pros: "Comfort?: had a fat neighbor whose elbow was in my robs"
Pros: "The good"
Pros: "American Airlines gets a thumbs up for this flight! Great seating, food decent, on time. We waited for some folks to join from a connecting flight which was good business."
Cons: "It was n't their fault but My wife's passport expired in 91 days from beginning travel so they wouldn't let us on the plane to Italy."
Pros: "Everything was good. Tv screen had issues booking for first half of flight"
Cons: "I paid for an upgraded seat and after boarding other passengers were being moved to the same area that I had paid for an upgraded seat FOR FREE!"

Pros: "Service was great"
Pros: "Checking and boarding was lighting fast"
Cons: "There was a bit of a delay, which was due to weather and certainly not their fault. They kept us informed"
Pros: "Other than the fact that it's a direct flight from jfk to Helsinki, there's not much else to like about it"
Cons: "Even though we paid extra for comfort seats, the seats were extremely uncomfortable! Not just the lack of sufficient leg room (especially when the person in front reclined) but most importantly the quality of the cushions. They were like cardboard and extremely uncomfortable to sit on. We were not able to sleep at all due to the discomfort! Additionally, they lost my luggage. It has been more than 24 hrs since I landed and I still haven't heard anything from them as to where my luggage was, when I should expect it why it still hasn't been delivered. Overall, a terrible experience."
Pros: "The staff was very nice and attentive. Boarding was timely and flight landed 30 minutes early."
Cons: "Long flight with no screens on the back of the seats with personal entertainment options. Furthermore, I had a middle seat and my shoulders kept knocking into my neighbors. Worst of all, my seat didn't incline as far as the people on either side of me. Sleeping is already hard on a plane, and this made it way worse...not to mention my knees were jammed into the seat in front of me the whole time."
Pros: "the flight was very comfortable"
Cons: "Finnair "outsourced" the flight to a Portuguese HiFly. Boarding: flight delayed for more than 1 hour, with passengers sitting all this time in the plane and waiting for all connection flights to arrive. As a result we arrived late for our connection flight. The Finnair people that met the passengers on exit form the plain did not provide any information how we should proceed next. We were left to figure it out by ourselves. Crew: The impression was that all the flight attendants from HiFly were untrained. The did not know what to do an how to do. They seemed lost on the plane. Comfort: Plane seemed to be re-purchased from some Arab airline. Food: bad Entertainment: v system was broken. Information system was showing wrong current time."
Pros: "Smooth flight given the tough turbulence."
Cons: "American Airlines caterers do not stock Tea on flight to London, UK (major up-roar). Staff was pretty grouchy."
Cons: "Most of the entertainment consoles did not work"
Pros: "Very good flight"
Pros: "Everything about the flight was good"
Pros: "direct flight"
Cons: "There was a lack of air and no possibility for individual airing your seat, during our flight we had to stand in the back because we were almost passing out of overheating 30 Celsius plus heat in our row. We asked for a cooler temperature and only the last 20 minutes it started cooling but then to ice cold. My audio was not working properly, at max it was still unclear. We have had better flight experiences."
Pros: "No one was traveling, airport calm, preTSE always nice This wasa codeshare--actuallyAA"
Cons: "no comp,lints"
Pros: "The entertainment was really up to date and easily accessible"

Cons: "Made sure the flight was not over booked."
Pros: "Very friendly crew"
Cons: "In-flight system had some errors"
Cons: "Staff Curtsy and overall gestures!!"
Cons: "They have a terrible communication problem, they never communicated why the flight was late, they never communicated what they were doing or what was happening. Bad customer service. Bad communication with the client. They told us when I asked several times that we would not lose our connection and that everything was fine and that was not the case. We lost the connection. No one told us anything. Another problem was that the girl in the boarding process removed the suitcases tickets from the boarding pass and did not want to return them, and held it without any cause. The flight staff went looking for us. Pretty sad and disappointed by their service. I understand that they were causes outside the airline but must communicate to the client. They cannot remain silent and say nothing."
Cons: "I dint like the way you guys sold me the tickets with only one bag to check in with when I went to the airport I’ve got to pay 58 pounds extra I was not happy with you guys so next time you have to tell your customers before they buy the tickets that’ it’s one bag check"
Pros: "Entertainment system"
Cons: "Awoke to find ill man laying on floor in aisle next to me with oxygen. Shortly after... Passenger in seat near man on floor (diabetic but no one tells us anything) needs to lay across four seats with oxygen for heart issues for remainder of trip with staff and doctor on board nearby. Nevdr informed what was happening, never offered to move our seats or move iIl passengers. Glad all turned out ok. Could have given them more privacy and better informed other passengers."
Pros: "The crew was terrific."
Pros: "Amazing crew and on time flight"
Pros: "Well trained, professional, highly efficient flight attendant, and what is more important, in good mood during the whole the flight"

Pros: "Crew great."
Pros: "crew great comfortable"
Cons: "Crew forced me to change my upgraded comfort seat to accommodate a 12 year old who they knew was going to be airsick. So I spent the first half of the flight next to a vomiting girl. Only after I asked to file a complaint, they allowed me one of two empty seats in premium. Terrible customer service."
Pros: "The flight departed on time and arrived early. The crew were all courteous and kind even to the man who was sitting next to me who seemed quite demanding."
Cons: "I am small but the seats seemed a bit too tight. The plane itself seemed a bit outdated."
Cons: "Placed in last row w/ non-reclining seats, even though bought tix 7 months early. We travel w/ only carry-on bags. AF allows 35 kg each but only 12 kg in cabin. I asked, online, twice, if we could have a couple of extra kg for hand pieces. Rec’d only auto. luggage policy. Forced to check both bags."
Pros: "Crew was amazing. Service and food was good."
Cons: "Random TSA check was not needed at the end when boarding."
Pros: "The crew was friendly!"
Cons: "Once again no vegetarian options."
Pros: "The crew was friendly and always came around with water."
Cons: "The “vegetarian” option was tuna which isn’t vegetarian and there was no vegetarian snack. With the hundreds of dietary and religious food restrictions you would think having a vegetarian option would be much more attainable.. They also didn’t make an announcement about our flight being late."
Pros: "The crew was efficient and friendly. The plane took off on time and landed on time."
Cons: "Boarding was slow and tedious. People still crowd around the boarding area despite there being row for the zones. Why they don't board from back to front is beyond me. The food was mediocre at best."
Pros: "On time, staff was nice."
Cons: "Not many options and not even a glass of champagne. That’s a minimal requirement. No sparkling water. Just very limited"
Pros: "It was only 2 hours"
Cons: "Small plane, no movies"
Pros: "Leg space was great, food was delicious, alcohol served 3-4 times, and the in-flight entertainment was spectacular. I saw 4 movies and slept somewhat comfortably for once!"

Cons: "My luggage was lost in Paris. Now I need to wait still."
Pros: "The food was okay and the staff were friendly."
Cons: "My seat and several others around me were broken so that they would fall all the way back if we leaned back at all. The entertainment system kept crashing and forgetting what shows everyone on board we’re watching. There were no air vents to control. The games crashed constantly. The usb hubs didn’t work."
Cons: "We were 2h late"
Pros: "That flight have been short"
Cons: "Fly attendants have been in hurry when they served snack"
Pros: "The cabin crew were excellent"
Cons: "We were transported to the plane which was quite some distance to the plane via bus after climbing down steep stairs from the departure gate area. Then we had to climb steep steps in extremely hot weather. We were then delayed for a hour in the plane in very hot conditions as the plane had its air conditioning off and the ground air conditioning was not put on. We were swearing in the heat for an hour!! We arrived at our destination and hour and half late!!"
Pros: "The crew and flight was faultless"
Cons: "We were not advised of a flight number change or checking in location change. This could have resulted in us missing our flight."
Pros: "It was ok fligh"
Cons: "Food was not so good"
Pros: "The inflight service"
Cons: "The 3 hours delay"
Pros: "Hospitality of the flight attendants"
Cons: "Toilets could hv been cleaned more often"
Pros: "It was on time"
Cons: "Food was AWFUL! Better to serve nothing"
Pros: "Late, not enough legroom, smell from the toilet. Tiny TV screen, malfunctioning electronics, poorly maintained seats. Friendly crew! They looked tired, but they were still smiling while trying to keep passengers happy."
Cons: "Each time the space in this planes is smaller. Surprising, it was very hot all the time."
Pros: "The flight crew and flights itself were great."
Cons: "I was told the wrong flight time, wrong terminal, wrong gate, and wrong airline. I couldn't check-in online. It was horribly inconvenient and I nearly missed the flight. We got there with 5 minutes until the doors closed."
Pros: "Boarding sevece was very nice and helpful Thanks so much"
Cons: "Very warm and stiffy air on board. Need change light. Very sad neon. Probably Boing style."
Cons: "No entertainment or usb plugsto charge."
Pros: "No complain about Air France. The service and food are very good. Enjoy it."
Cons: "Our return flight is Milan--CDG--SFO. The transfer time at CDG is 1 hour. The line at CDG is incredibly long. We barely made it. IMPOSSIBLE for tax return. Very bad flight connection experience."
Pros: "The seats were comfortable."
Cons: "The bag did not arrive. It stayed in Paris even though my first flight was on time. Connecting at CDG was a negative experience. Not enough time and unfriendly staff at the security check."
Pros: "The attentiveness of the crew and the online check in."
Cons: "Missed the connecting flight and the luggage was on transferred on our next conncection :("
"The check in counter at the airport did not open early enough, I arrived 4 hrs prior to my flight to the airport and waited for 1 1/2 hrs for the counter to open. I already had paid extra for my luggage online for both ways and they did not have any records of it. I had no internet on my phone so I could not download the receipt it should've been added to my itinerary so I was charged TWICE. Terrible online service that info is not sync with the reservation. Also my name was incorrect and they charged $30 for a name change when they had already helped me adjust that in Boston. There is a lot it could've done better. for such a long flight at least some peanuts or a free small snack would be appreciated. TV entertainment did not have a great variety either. definitely not having Icelandair as my first option unless it is way cheaper than other options but I know what I'll be paying for."
"Never again will I fly to Europe on Icelandair. It took me 1.5 hours to check-in in Berlin (one person working the counter, another one handling the “express” line, no opportunity to get a boarding pass at home), Came to the airport 2 hrs before but after I cleared security, the display showed last call for my flight with 2 min remaining. Ran. Did not shop, did not eat, did not buy food to take onboard. Icelandair sells a limited number of food items (a chicken sandwich - not for a vegetarian - and a cheese pizza as well as several snacks), no complimentary food is served. This is what they call “simplified onboard service”. Connection in Reykjavík was 1hr 25 min, and all of this time I stood in line to clear passport control: again no shopping, no eating, and not even a bathroom break. Arrived home famished and super annoyed. Had to buy headphones on board (is this a budget airline?!) and the selection of movies left much to be desired."
"Comfortable easy flight"
"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: "Our crew were wonderful - attentive, very pleasant, and helpful. The cod was very good and I enjoyed my meal. The seats wer comfortable. I also enjoyed the Icelandic movie "Let Me Fall"."
Cons: "For an 8-hour flight, it would have been nice to have more of a foot rest; something that would raise my legs more. However, the seats were comfortable."
Pros: "free entertainment, friendly crew"
Cons: "snacks, food for free"
Pros: "Seats were great, the crew was so nice. Would love to fly this airline again"
Cons: "More options for movies would be cool but still ok"
Pros: "Efficient flight crew, helpful with baggage"
Cons: "Terrible seats with poirbrecline function, stingy on the snack situation"
Pros: "Good selection of movies to watch"
Cons: "Beverage service needs to be done more than twice on a 7.5 HR flight."
Pros: "Always straight forward no frills fuss. I like the seating, but there could be more variety in entertainment."
Cons: "Flight was delayed and no info was given why though we assumed it was because the same reason every other flight was delayed. Ground crew did a pre checkin so that helped speed up process."
Pros: "Service and entertainment"
Cons: "No snacks and you gotta purchase the headphones"
Pros: "friendly and helpful flight crew"
Cons: "an 8 hour flight with no food service unless you pay"
Cons: "Delays in boarding. Ticket was bought 8 months ago with seat selected but when checking in found I was put on standby and had to wait until everyone else boarded. Assistance at gate to try and get seat assignment very poor as I was simply told to wait. On flight from Iceland to Portland the gate did not even start boarding until close to official departure time and plane left about 30 minutes late. Result I barely made my last connection in Portland but my luggage did not arrive because maybe customs checking took too long."
Cons: "No trash pickup for an 8 hour flight, so trash was all over the plane by the end of the flight. Elderly gentleman soiled his pants and was wandering around the plane touching all the seats. Flight attendants were very nice, but provided almost NO service for an 8 hour flight. Lack of cleanliness will keep me from flying this airline again."
Cons: "The flight was delaying for 1 hour and 45 minutes. It was not a pleasant time yesterday. The airline did not tell passengers what caused the delaying. I hope the airline will improve this caused next time."
Pros: "This flight was good, direct to PDX in 8 hours. Inflight entertainment was good and staff pleasant. Boarding was smooth and flight was on time. Luggage all retrieved safely at destination."
Cons: "My complaint is with Kayak! We believed we were choosing a flight with first bag checked free, but that was so far from the truth! Each of our two checked bags cost $75 USD, adding a brutal $150 to the cost of our flight! Food was also quite expensive."
Pros: "I just want to give a particular shout out to Marta from flight FI655 REK to PDX on April 10th. I was extremely dehydrated and blacked out for a moment. Next thing I know, the crew is on me, asking me questions, trying to get me some help. They found a doctor on the flight and attended to me extremely calmly. They got me a nice seat where Marta checked on me for the rest of the flight, made sure I ate and drank something, got my things from my seat, and overall gave me far more attention than I could have ever asked for. Thanks, Marta! (Please give this woman a raise or a medal or something.)"
Cons: "Didn’t happen."
Pros: "Crew did their best to accommodate customers w/ the limited space."
Cons: "Not enough leg and seat space - see above."
Pros: "Same as above."
Cons: "Same as above."
Pros: "efficiency, cleanliness"
Cons: "Again, 757 is most confining jet for passenger comfort still flying."
Pros: "Descent selection of movies and tv shows helped with the long flight. Flight times are great for reduced layover times in Iceland from PDX to MAN."
Pros: "Food was as advertised, and entertainment was not at all disappointing."
Cons: "Seat screwup... IcelandAir screwed up my seat selection and failed in three opportunities to fix it. During online check-in, I swapped my aisle seat for an exit row middle seat with empty standing room in front of me (because I am tall this is important). Skeptical, I verified this twice at Stockholm ARL by checking computer and with the bagge agent. She reassured me I would have long leg room. Upon boarding, I quickly learned I had been misled: I had a middle seat with short leg room and between two passengers. A flight attendant declined to listen or help me even though better seats were available. It turned out to be my worst trans-oceanic flight among 1 to 2 dozen in my life."
Pros: "Comfortable seats with leg room."
Cons: "Two flights I had broken screen so watching movies was accomplished sharing my daughters screen."
Pros: "The seats were comfortable and there was plenty of room. The price is usually less."
Cons: "Food choices are very limited on flights to The US. The prices are based on the Icelandic economy...very, very expensive. I recommend buying food at the airport and take it on or later. Some planes are older and not as comfortable but there is no way to know ahead of time. The USB port does not charge your device and there is no electrical plug even though it is advertised. After a flight they fold the blankets and reuse the pillows....yuck!"
Cons: "No snacks and I asked for headphones, but flight attendant forgot about me."
Pros: "Icelandair was incredible. The crew was so friendly and helpful and the flight was a breeze. They offer many choices of entertainment on the plane's tv along with food and drink. I would fly Icelandair again and definitely recommend the airline to anyone traveling."
Cons: "Nothing about Icelandair, but the Keflavik airport. Boarding the flight while still in Iceland was a little bit of a hassle. The airport is a bit unorganized at the gates and there is no seating around the gates and random lines everywhere"
Pros: "We landed"
Cons: "Cramped seats, mine was broken (couldn't recline), economy class gave us feeling like we were cattle, no wifi for entire 8hr flight"
Cons: "We were late for our conection flght to Spokane"
Pros: "Again, the crew was very gracious and accommodating"
Cons: "The airport in Iceland is atrocious. The worst experience I have ever had in a terminal and boarding. It's hard to believe that there are so few seats at each gate and with several very large flights leaving from one small terminal and all within a few hours of each other it was extremely crowded and very hard to get to any amenities. We had to sit on the Floor!!! Then the boarding was a joke. The line was long and slow and we had to get on a bus and go out to the plane which was very awkward and slow. The bus was packed and very uncomfortable and the smell of diesel was nauseating. It seems like if they are going to accommodate so many large international flights that they would figure out that their infrastructure really needs some upgrades. Can't imagine what it would have been like if the weather had been poor which of course it often is in Iceland! Also, going to Europe, we received a couple of meals and on this flight no food was served. The food they did offer was over priced."
Cons: "Why only two bathrooms at the tail of the plane? Makes for a long line of people and not much room to stretch out on an eight hour flight."
Pros: "The complimentary service. The wonderful passenger lounge where we waited before going to the gate was a treat! We appreciated the free salad buffet and beverages. It was a quiet oasis!"
Cons: "Crowding and standing room only in Reykjavik terminal at the gate with no seating available was very difficult. There were several gates located in one small area very close together and no way to queue up for your particular gate. People were pushing through the crowd from the back to find their gate instead of being able to form an orderly line. If you are elderly or compromised in any way, this can be very stressful and uncomfortable. Our boarding was delayed and it was a miserable experience standing for so long with people pushing past us. Riding the buses and carrying our bags up several stairs to get on the plane was not easy and we were stressed and exhausted by the experience. The seats in this plane were not as comfortable as the flight from Helsinki. The seats were small and not deep enough, and had no foot rests. So the longest part of our flight to Portland was not as comfortable. Riding the bus from our arrival gate and baggage area in Portland and on to the main terminal was difficult. After getting our checked bags though customs and piled onto a cart along with our carry on bags, we had to unload them all into the bus and ride standing up holding on to everything while the driver went a little too fast, making it very hard to stay standing. Again, this makes it very stressful and difficult for anyone who is older or compromised physically. Iceland Air is not a friend of the elderly!"
Pros: "In flight services, pleasant flight attendants."
Cons: "Took shuttle buses to the plane that was parked on the tarmac. Had stairs to board at the front and rear of the plane. Great to have two access points, in theory. No clear instructions regarding who should board at which staircase. As a result, some passengers who were in the last row boarded at the front door. Might be better to give clear instructions that passengers in seats 23 and higher should board at the rear."
Pros: "An eight hour flight but no food provided? Only for purchase? I can't think of any overseas flight I've had that didn't provide some type of meal."
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"
Pros: "The flight, comfort, crew and entertainment was good on my flight"
Pros: "The crew."
Cons: "The legroom is too small."
Pros: "Well stocked cabin with blankets and pillows."
Cons: "Mass boarding from a bus meant people entered from both ends of the plane in no specific order, so were moving in opposite directions in the narrow isle while managing carry on luggage. Not very efficient. Additional,water bottles should be available upon request on overseas flights."
Pros: "Most of it was great except the for the confusion at the gate."
Cons: "4 outbound flights scheduled to go out in a 20 minute period with all gates next to each other. No separation of lines for the different flights. Very confusing and crowded. Caused delays in boarding and discontent amongst travelers."
Cons: "the boarding was the worst"
Cons: "No food cramped spaces for too many hours and when we got to Portland one of our bags was missing!"
Cons: "My in flight movie screen was broken. No food was served the entire 7 hour flight! Not even a pack of peanuts. I expect much much more on a long flight like this."
Pros: "Great movie selection and the food selection was reasonable."
Pros: "Wow Icelandair was great! Some friends used Wow air the day before and despite tickets being a similar price, it sounds like their flight wasn't nearly as nice. One thing I really loved was they had instructional videos about Iceland (driving safety and Icelandic culture for example) on the in flight entertainment system. They also had a really nice selection of movies including fairly new blockbusters and old classics."
Cons: "Food and snacks cost extra and weren't cheap, but it's to be expected from such an inexpensive ticket."
Cons: "There is really very limited drink service. Bring a water bottle with you and fill it at the airport. Bring some snacks or a meal too."
Pros: "2 free checked bags, nice flight attendants"
Cons: "No free snacks at all"
Pros: "Nicest crew ever from Iceland to Portland!"
Pros: "It moves quickly"
Cons: "No announcement and no idea what was going on. We had to board a bus to get to the plane which is fine but some information would have been helpful!"
Pros: "it was fine in the foreign airports where exit was direct into the terminal"
Cons: "At Reykjavik, boarding in bad weather is not a desirable experience. Passengers are out in the elements and sometimes people blocking the aisles during boarding backs up onto the tarmac where quite a few people will be getting windblown and wet.....for a while."
Pros: "Great crew, thank you for a safe flight."
Cons: "I did not like the configuration for such a long flight. One set of bathrooms in the back of the plane for the whole economy class is not ideal for an eight hour flight. I think the passengers in the back have to suffer through people standing in aisle for most of flight. no food except for purchase. Limited seating at airport. Did not like having to board bus to plane"
"Everything was delayed a bit. Gate announcement delayed. Boarding to buses took so long, due to additional security measures (was it really necessary? We all have passed through security gates)."
"The airport delayed sending our COVID test results. We were told it would be a 40 min process but it took over an hour. We got the results 5 mins after the gate closed and they refused to help us make our flight. We had to sleep in the airport floor overnight because they said the only thing they could do was put us on the next flight at 9:35am the next morning - they said that the ere was no way to switch us to another flight that night because we booked on kayak and not directly through the airline. The staffs attitudes were cold and unfeeling and a different staff member that was present but not directly trying to help us in any way was openly rude and vindictive."
"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."
"Not much legroom on the flight from LHR to PMI. I’m195 cm."
Pros: "Very good crew who were welcoming and attentive"
Cons: "We were placed at an international gate, had to wait for stairs (for the rear of the plane) and then a bus to the terminal. We arrived early but by the time we had waited for steps, bus etc, we were late!"
Pros: "Crew was friendly, food was good"
Cons: "Entertainment was broken in one of our seats, the seats were not comfortable"
Pros: "Very pleasant and helpful crew"
Cons: "Improved seating comfort, leg barrier or something"
Pros: "Not much, except that I got to Nashville."
Cons: "I was told that boarding was about to stop, and that the doors would close any minute. As it turned out, this did not happen for at least 30 minutes. I was among the first on board, and really worried I'd miss the flight. The bathroom sink was out of order, no way to wash hands, a health hazard!"
Cons: "We had three legs on our trip and had to work with Cust Srv at each airport for the next flight"
Pros: "The plane got from a to b safely"
Cons: "The food was dreadful. Both the gluten free and regular meals. Tasteless and unimaginative. Very dodgy landing. The time of arrival given by the airline prior to flying did not take into account the fact that the clocks went back. So our pickup was delayed. Not good at 4 am"
Pros: "The crew generally is kind and patient. This older aircraft had new seats installed."
Cons: "BA now doesn’t even provide you with a glass of water or peanuts for free. Everything is buy on board like Easyjet or Ryannair. Entertainment is non-existent as are any type of power outlets. Seat pitch is very tight."
Pros: "Provided vouchers for being bumped"
Cons: "Airline over booked and we were the lucky couple to be bumped off due to their business decision to over book!! Not a nice way to end a vacation in the Outer Hebridies"
Pros: "Short and comfy."
Cons: "Really? The only refreshments had to be purchased?"
Pros: "direct flight and flight times"
Cons: "old plane no option to reserve seats. ended up with 4 random middle seats in the plane"
Pros: "The crew was very hospitable. The food was good. There were blankets and pillows. Although we hit some turbulence, the pilot was really good about explaining it and calming the mood."
Cons: "Unfortunately, the entertainment system was on the blink and it was impossible to hear anything on the headsets."
Cons: "Theres no entertainment and I had to run to my gate because the connection time is so short."
Pros: "Quick and efficient boarding."
Cons: "The way that the crew (both in economy on right of plane) spoke to, and handled sensitive situations with several of the passengers in a loud and rather rude manner. This is not the British way that I have been accustomed to on previous BA flights, and is rather upsetting. The crew were very abrupt in general, and did not have that seasoned and polite demeanor which I expect from BA."
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "It was late, it was cramped, they make you pay for everything suitcases, soft drinks, the lot, next time we will consider who we spend our hard earned cash with Disappointing as I am a real advocate for BA"
Pros: "The prompt take off and landing..."
Pros: "Crew was awesome. Seats were very comfortable. I slept the entire flight do so I am unable to comment on food or entertainment"
Cons: "The boarding process could use a lot of work. The gate isn't known until practically boarding time. The Admirals Lounge really could use an upgrade. It was uncomfortable and it was a great disappointment."
Pros: "The flight wasn't as late on arrival as I anticipated it would be."
Cons: "The ground staff were completely useless when it came to actually getting a new flight after missing my earlier flight when I showed up with only 20 minutes to spare and the ground crew left the gate before it actually closed. They then wanted to charge me 500 euros for a replacement flight, in the end Kayak online got me on the same flight for less than 100 euros. The rest of the flight was mediocre. Lufthansa and Virgin do so much of a better job with overall staff on the ground."
Cons: "As a Kenyan Passport Holder living in Canada on a PR status was denied right to travel to Kenya via LHR transit. WHY ? will you help us with our rights what compensation will help to alleviate the pain"
Cons: "Layover at Heathrow airport too long. Confusing or non existing gate announcements."
Pros: "The staff in airplane was okay"
Cons: "The boarding staff are very rude"
Cons: "I didn't like the fact that one has to pay for any refreshments on the flight, even for coffee, juice, or soda. When I asked for water, the flight attendant assumed that I wanted to pay for bottled water; I had to specify that I wanted regular water."
Cons: "I ended up being rerouted to LA!"
Cons: "seats were tiny"
Cons: "The foot rest broken and I told them they don't do anything even I have bad knees"
Pros: "Very courteous attendants"
Cons: "It was all good"
Pros: "Crew polite"
Cons: "Boarding was chaotic"
Pros: "Clean only immediately after boarding."
Cons: "1) Toilets too small 2) Toilets after first use by passengers, was not cleansed and toilet supplies like seat covers, etc not replenished 3) Not even enough toilets around."
Cons: "The BA ticket counter did not open early enough with enough staff to get all passengers checked in time. As such, the plane was delayed and we missed this connecting flight. Other people were in the same boat. We had no chance to make our connection but others did. While the flight crew offered weak apologies advising they had no control, they made no effort to help connecting passengers in ways the could control. Such as asking all passengers to remain seated allowing connecting passengers off the plane first. Something I've seen done on many other airlines numerous times."
Pros: "1. MAA - Boarding - grouping should have been more professional"
Cons: "1. I had filled up API information & am an Executive club member. My India contact number is available on record. In spite of that I did not get SMS about flight ETD details or alert. 2. First meal was served about 1 hour after departure, which is Ok. The second meal was served after 8 hours, towards end of flight. 3. BA 36 takes off at ETD 05.30 & travels east. It is always day time as it flies."
Pros: "Boarding was good, flight was on time."
Cons: "No leg room, small seats...no surprises there!"
Pros: "the only somewhat helpful person was the customer service attendant that i called the day before i flew who tried his best to be helpful after the worst flying experiences i have ever had"
Cons: "the lack of anyone willing to assist me in the airport, over the phone, online. i was not able to check in had to call customer service several times because i was getting hung up on or told that nothing could be done to check me in, issue me boarding passes or just answer general questions. Went to the airport 3 hours prior for a transatlantic flight like recommended (6:45). The attendants showed up to the desk at 8, with no sign as to when they would show up even though the desk was getting called constantly starting at 7am. was told that in dublin we would have to check in to flight and we would be assigned seats then. even thought the attendant printed our boarding passes for the connecting flight but did not give them to us. When in dublin was told that we had already been checked in and we could have been assigned our seats in madrid by the connections desk. When talking to others on same flight they told us they were allowed to checkin into all flights and had no issues at the airport"
Cons: "To summarize it, the manager at the counter told me: you should have booked with Turkish airlines instead of us. This would be my first and last time with British airways."
Cons: "My luggage didn't make it to NY. Very upset about this because I have no idea when it will be delivered!"
Pros: "Crew were pleasant"
Cons: "Business class seating is bad but centre row in business is terrible in all respects. Tickets should be sold at half price"
Pros: "Crew was great and very helpful."
Cons: "The air pressure in the cabin didn't seem right, feet were swollen more than other international flights I have taken."
Pros: "Nice plane and good food, very nice flight!"
Pros: "Free drinks and food when traveling overseas. Possibly cheaper flights than other airlines?"
Cons: "I got switched to American Airlines last minute, which is a sister company of British Airways, apparently. This was 1 of the 2 worst flights that I have ever been on, only second to my other booked flight for this trip home. This flight was 7+ hours long and it was nothing short of horrible. The seats were extremely uncomfortable and barely went back at all. The male flight attendant was clearly annoyed and was short with every person who would ask for anything. He would roll his eyes at every request by customers. At one point I saw him literally toss a sandwich into a customers lap because they were turned the other way and didn't hear him when he asked if they wanted one. There was no way to watch anything unless you had your own device and had downloaded it yourself prior to the flight."
Cons: "Seating configuration was ridiculous as flight attendants constantly leaning across me with trays and their arms nearly hitting my face. Seat & bed functions didn't work. Privacy screen was a joke!"
Pros: "we landed"
Cons: "flight had a two hours delay flight attendants were rude and obnoxious will never fly on british airways ever again they shouldnt be allowed to drive people let alone fly them london is just fog and ugly faces british airways' customer service is the equivalent of wisdom teeth: they exist but no one seems to know why they should delete their airline altogether"
Pros: "The crew was wonderful , the seats very comfortable , breakfast very reach I felt my self booking first class not economy It is the best trip"
Cons: "we didn't get a snack before landing we only got a drink. we were only given food at the beginning of the flight and it was an 8 hour flight. I was not able to change my flight for this trip had to do it at the counter; but the friend who i was traveling with did have the ability to do so. I went early to the airport in Johannesburg to ensure we could sit together but the workers in terminal A sent me to terminal B (even though they were closed and didn't open until 3) then i went to the ticketing desk and they said they couldn't' help me. so i ask them to call British Airways help desk (since i didn't have a phone internationally) and they said they were closed on the weekend. I wrote the gentleman's name down but i don't have it with me right now. I was finally able to get my seat changed when i checked in at 6pm; lucky there were seats available. I would say the customer service at Johannesburg airport for BA is terrible."
Cons: "Missed my connecting flight and experience was horrible"
Pros: "I used to think that British Airways was one of the classier emails. Unfortunately, they have become thoroughly mediocre. The meal was one of the very worst I've ever had on an airplane, entertainment system antiquated, no email, poor ventilation with no individual air outlet. Heathrow is an airport to be avoided if at all possible."
Pros: "On-time departure, friendly staff"
Pros: "There weren't too many people on this flight so we were able to use the extra seat in our row. The flight attendants were very nice."
