Check in is poorly marked Heathrow lounge was excellent, service very good New Virgin upper class suites technically qualify as business class but they are very cramped and there is no storage space at all. No sleep suits available in my size, on any of the flights. Rather leave it if you can't deliver. Toiletry bag is cheap and tacky. Compare with the price paid for a business class ticket.
First time I traveld with virgin Atlantic and service is good flight is also very good.
Delays, grumpy service staff
Pros: "People were friendly. Flight was comfortable."
Cons: "Staff incorrectly assessed documents needed for visas, and told us we were incomplete and needed to return home. Instead of looking up policy, we were denied boarding mid-flight, missed a wedding, and had to spend three days in London instead of our destination. Also, we got bug bites during the flight that turned out to be from bed bugs, which followed us home and caused much frustration for months."
Pros: "Great crew. Very kind and efficient."
Cons: "American carriers seem to enjoy poor seat ergonomics."
Cons: "My tv screen could not show the movies"
Pros: "The crew was very good and there was enough leg room."
Cons: "The dinner option was underwhelming."
Pros: "crew was nice"
Cons: "First time flying with a partner through Delta, so they stuck us on a Virgin Atlantic flight meaning I didn't get my free Delta check in bag (a fee of $60 each way) when I have gotten it every other flight I have ever taken with them. It was also 2 whole hours late in boarding."
Pros: "I liked the movies"
Cons: "Crew helping everyone be more courteous to people sleeping. Group of guys being loud in the back of the plane while I was trying to sleep"
Pros: "Crew were wonderful when I was nauseous from turbulence"
Cons: "They have to uptade the airplanes"
Pros: "Nobody are better hosts than the British. Great service, lovely people."
Pros: "The seats of the economy class are a little bit bigger than the rest of the airlines and are so much confortable to sleep."
Cons: "The crew speaks to quick and the Australian accent is not always easy to understand"
Cons: "Missed connection to SFO"
Cons: "Why do I have to get a new boarding pass in London"
Cons: "Arrived 1:10 min begore departure. Customer service reps quoted me with No Show. When asked they have no courtesy to answer. Both the rep over the phone and the rep at the airport were horrible. Did I say I was traveling business class? You could imagine the economy"
Pros: "Fast boarding and nice staff. Food selection was ok"
Cons: "One item missing from menu (unavailable). Issues with entertainment system. Bathrooms lacked moisturiser which is always very helpful on long flights where the air is dry"
Cons: "Staff was not concerned about anything, vague and uncaring..this was my son flying across the Atlantic idiots!! One pissed mom!!!"
Pros: "Staff was very friendly"
Cons: "Headphone jacks are costume, could not use my own."
Pros: "love the lounge and easy check in and boarding, great attendants and smooth trip"
Cons: "would be nice if lounge was open earlier - arrived for 8:30am flight and had to wait around in freezing cold terminal with no coffee for an hour"
Pros: "The crew were very polite and looked smart, I didn’t find them very personable at all though. The entertainment system is fantastic and my meal was ok I guess, I requested the low fat meal, probably should’ve just had the normal one."
Cons: "The seats are not very comfortable, very hard and textured seats that just don’t feel nice at all especially on a long flight. I weight about 11 stone (154 pounds) and even I felt like I was taking up a lot of room in my seat."
Pros: "Cool flight, mainly because it was empty. Good food"
Cons: "Seats weren't that comfortable. Entertainment sucked because the screen functions were terrible, very difficult"
Cons: "My flight was cancelled on Christmas Day, but we had to stand in line to wait to get onto another flight on another airline. They were so slow that the flight they tried to put everyone left and then they offered ZERO assistance to get another flight and wouldn’t even refund my ticket, just told me after waiting 3 hours to call whoever I booked with for a refund."
Pros: "Great Service. Truly enjoyed Economy plus!"
Pros: "Quite a big choice of movies and TV shows to watch, more than enough for an eight hour flight. Normal headphone plugs so you can use your own."
Cons: "I booked together with my wife, yet we were allocated seats apart and were not able to be reassigned together. The leg room was so tight that I could not pick up things off the floor without putting my head in the next persons lap. Though the cabin crew were smiley and friendly, it was hard to get their attention when needed. The PA system is much louder than the entertainment, so announcements were ear bursting. The dinner selections ran out early, so a good proportion did not get their choice."
Pros: "good plane and timing"
Cons: "meal was not served according to the request and no sound support from the staff"
Pros: "Check in was very smooth with very friendly staff. On board crew was very welcoming and service was excellent."
Cons: "Aircraft configuration of the 787-9 was very poor with 9 seats abreast making the seats very cramped and very poor leg room."
Cons: "Service is super fast"
Cons: "After 14 hours the seats were like sitting on spikes"
Pros: "Virgin atlantic is the best airline with Dreamliner"
Cons: "A plane from 1960? No entertainment center!"
Pros: "The flight was on time."
Cons: "The floor at our feet had been spilled on during a previous flight and not cleaned. Bag was lost and not returned for 5 days. Crew during flight was flippant and disinterested in service...unless you were Economy+."
Pros: "Legroom was much better than on U.S. carriers doing same long trip."
Pros: "Smooth boarding process"
Cons: "Delays caused us to miss our flight from London to Vienna"
Cons: "Seat cushion r not soft comfortable enough. R hard. Hard My butt"
Pros: "Staff excellent , as always."
Cons: "It was impossible to sleep as the plane seemed extremely cold and was very noisy."
Pros: "I liked the food and refreshments and the on flight entertainment was good.."
Cons: "I didn't like the boarding process.every other flight I've been on they board plane by rows.on this flight everyone was boarding at same time which was annoying and held up the boarding process.."
Pros: "Still a more pleasant experience than BA but others have overtaken. Crew make a difference though."
Cons: "Limo service wasn't great in China - asked for address of hotel - a major international chain and confusion on booking details"
Cons: "For an international flight, the plane was too small, cramped and uncomfortable. Food had to be purchased. No entertainment what so ever. Previous I took a VA flight to Perth from Melbourne. Same distance, bigger plane, entertainment on seat backs and a meal. This flight soured me."
Cons: "this is not an airline, this is a bus company"
Cons: "Watch out for checked baggage fees on short haul international flights. If you buy their saver fare, VA charges you $130 to check a bag at the check-in counter. Highway robbery in my opinion! Make sure you add a bag beforehand. Corporate greed at its worst."
Cons: "They tried checking my carryon luggage because they said it was overweight and it would be $130. This is absurd, especially since it isn't going to change in weight by getting checked. I refused to pay this amount. The flight was also 3 hours delayed, almost missed my connection back to the states from SYD. Other international flights offer free meal service, you were lucky if you got water on this flight and had to pay for any snacks."
Pros: "Very professional crew throughout."
Cons: "Never seen an international flight charges checked in luggage $130 US dollars a piece"
Pros: "The food and service was excellent. Love it!"
Pros: "The comfort of the flight and entertainment."
Cons: "My bag was not put on the correct flight so I had no bag for 3 days, they were slow in getting my bag to Bali from Sydney. It was really unacceptable. I talked to 5 different people to make sure my bag was put on the correct plane, even asked before boarding if it was on and they said yes.The food was horrible, I only ate it because I was starving. Flight was delayed from Sydney to Bali, which caused me to miss my pick up. Not sure if I'll fly with them again."
Pros: "It was on time, and the crew was welcoming and helpful."
Cons: "The lack of healthiness of the snack--mostly sweets."
Pros: "Everything except the seating - far too cramped now"
Cons: "Seating! Seats getting ridiculously tight"
Boarding stuff was bad!!!
25 minute flight. Crew was friendly and competent.
The departure was delayed by more than 30 min. Late arrival. Crew was fantastic!
Pros: "The crew and seats were both great"
Cons: "HAving live TV would have been great."
Pros: "The two people who were in charge of boarding the plane were especially nice, efficient, and accommodating. I really really liked them."
Cons: "The flight was too warm."
Cons: "Food was terrible. Paid for first class, expected something better than coach. Our food choice was a ham sandwich, there were better choices but the crew took them for themselves so nothing left for the 1st class passengers. Similar situation on our eastbound flight the week earlier. I doubt if Delta knows or cares that this occurs. After paying more than twice the coach fare, we expect something better than a ham sandwich on a coast to coast flight."
Cons: "More communication on the flight delay"
Pros: "Food on long legs was excellent."
Cons: "Delayed in Atlanta. What’s new?"
Pros: "New long haul service is a real improvement in quality"
Pros: "The crew on both legs of our trip were nice and accommodating."
Pros: "Crew was amazing."
Cons: "Took forever to wait in line to board this relatively small plane."
Pros: "Just fine, beverage service was friendly."
Cons: "The entertainment system was out the entire flight. The flight attendants were just talking to each other as we left, even when I tried to say thank you."
Cons: "Seat assignment with Economy ticket."
Cons: "I'd reserved seats in advance for both directions and was give seats farther back both directions when checking in at the airport."
Pros: "Crew ok . Seat not so comfy"
Pros: "The crew was very friendly. Boarding was quick."
Cons: "Seat size in Comfort+ was still cramped. The person sitting next to me(in the middle was a fairly large (height not weight) and his arms and shoulders were pretty much flowing into my seat( I sat by the window). Leg room of course was fine. Very cold draft coming from the airplane(window?)"
Cons: "Healthier snacks instead of just candy and cookies... an apple for example would be great."
Cons: "Crew did not make passenger in front of me bring his seat back up for landing."
Pros: "Crew superb"
Cons: "Better food at a homeless shelter..ugh.."
Pros: "Check in process & text updates were awesome!"
Cons: "My flight to PDX was quite bumpy so food and beverage service were impacted, which I totally understand. However, the fact that I was not served at all, does not sit well with me! They had to stop service with only a few rows left to go due to turbulence but rather it just being a delay in service, the flight attendants never came back to check on the customers they hadn’t served even when the seat belt lights turned off. I really enjoy flying Delta but not this time!"
Cons: "Change my seat when I was boarding. I already had my seat # assigned before boarding. Sat next to a man with a strong body odor. I came down with a sore throat last night so I was feeling pretty bad. Then to endure a long flight with that smell which made my trip very uncomfortable."
Pros: "How does one describe spending 10+ hours in a metal tube approximately 18 feet wide at 30,000 feet with 300 of your closest friends breathing the same air while having the seat in front of you pushed back so you cannot adequately see the passenger monitor because it's too close to focus on as your knees are under your chin? Flying in "steerage" is not comfortable as humans get larger and airplane seats get squeezed smaller. Please unsqueeze! Cabin crew members were excellent. Other than that, Europe was great!"
Cons: "See other side."
Pros: "On the fight back I had enough space; good service; fine food. Great trip. On the way to Amsterdam, I sat next to a very overweight woman and her body hung over my seat. I couldn't move around enough and I ended up with a trigger point problem which immobilized me for 3 days and kept me from sleeping at night. It was very disappointing, since this was a family visit trip."
Cons: "See above!"
Pros: "Newer plane. Friendly crew. Landed safely and on time."
Pros: "Hot towel was a plus"
Cons: "The seats weren't that comfortable"
Pros: "Attentive, respectful and nice crew, swift take off and landing and awesome views"
Cons: "Nothing. Everything went well"
Pros: "Easy, fast boarding. We arrived early too."
Pros: "Entertainment was good and staff was pleasant"
Cons: "Delta assigns seats at boarding, miss when you could pick which seats you sit in. I bought my sisters ticket, hoping we would then be able to sit together but we both ended up in the middle in different rows."
Pros: "I dont like that you change my flight and I have to wait 8 hours at the airport to flight to Mexico City"
Pros: "Delay. First it was about 20 min, then 30, then 49 and 55. At the end more than 70 minutes delay. Too much, too frequent on delta!!!!"
Pros: "clean. friendly. decent snacks."
Cons: "warm cabin. small seats with no head support. not enough drink cart passes."
Pros: "Great entertainment, comfortable seats."
Cons: "Middle seat with zero chance to switch."
Pros: "Wi-FI available (although I didn't use it)"
Cons: "No direct flight in the morning, so had to take two connecting flights, and leave home very early in the morning."
Pros: "Some "perk" for Diamond status on Delta to get to a shorter security line, but customs and immigration was... customs and immigration."
Cons: "No available SkyTeam lounge unless you had a business class ticket. As a Diamond flier, I can always access the SkyTeam lounges. Audio for boarding was a little unclear so there was some confusion at boarding. For reasons unknown, my bag was moved from one overhead bin to another. Very frustrating since I board early to avoid this confusion and hassle."
Cons: "The fact they wasted two days of my trip with my son travelling from the U.S. to China because they didn't know about transit visa regulations. And so far they offered a 75 dollar voucher for participating merchants. Unacceptable"
Pros: "The crew has a good vibe, makes for a pleasant trip"
Cons: "First time for me to have delayed baggage, made me think that somebody is not minding the store."
Pros: "Staff was friendly, and we got there safely"
Cons: "Really wished we had tv's like we had on our flight to SLC. It really helps with those who have anxiety to distract their minds. Wifi is expensive therefore I chose not to use it"
Pros: "Food was OK, ice cream at mid-flight was my favorite thing. I liked the choice of movies. Drinks are also good but why not include pure cranberry juice? It goes great with vodka."
Cons: "Boarding is ridiculous. Everyone who is not some kind of VIP is asked to line up and is treated like cattle. 5-feet tall woman holds above her head a sign with the zone currently boarding. Nobody can hear or see anything. Why not use the big LCD displays at the gate??? In the plane they had to restart the computer system as some TVs were not working and it took longer than they said. Toilets were kind of stinky and I could smell them from my seat on row 26. Blankets are way too thin for the blasting AC."
Pros: "crew was very respectful and kind"
Cons: "Flight was moved to a different gate, then delayed. We were given the absolute last seat in the plane that could not recline- not the seats I had selected before hand."
Pros: "Attendants were cheerful and extremely courteous."
Cons: "Legroom but that's because we can't afford 1st class. Hahahaha"
Pros: "Airplane was good, boarding was fast."
Cons: "Did not have the fruit and cheese plate."
Pros: "Entertainment is now free."
Cons: "This was the fourth first class leg of our overall trip and the first three flights on Delta were great. The attendants were pleasant and even fun. I have allergies and requested a special meal on all legs. No problem on the first three flights. All attendants approached me to confirm my allergy and the special meal. They were very polite. But on this flight, the attendant didn't speak with me about it at all. She tried to give me the regular meal. When I explained I needed an allergy free meal (mind you this was first class), I was told I could not get it and got no apology or other accommodation. Her attitude was take it or leave it. I found this interesting since on two of the other flights an announcement was made about another passenger with an allergy to peanuts so no one could have them on the flights and the attendants were very concerned."
Pros: "Food and choice of entertainment was excellent."
Cons: "Was stuck with the middle seat so I knew what I was in for."
Cons: "One of the men working the desk at the gate was rude & condescending to me. The other gate agent who was having us board (he was an ethnic man) was friendly & excellent."
Pros: "Pilot was hot."
Cons: "4 hour maintenance delay. Arrived at 2 am, after boarding a different plane."
Pros: "Ditto from above"
Cons: "Ditto from above"
Pros: "Flight was the best we sat right behind first class so it wasn't a long wait to deplane. In flight entertainment was great to with a wide selection of movies to watch"
Cons: "Nothing was bad about the flight sorry"
Pros: "Great crew and aircraft"
Liked the condition, comfort and cleanliness of the plane. Flight crew was very efficient and attentive. Food was very good, but they could have a slightly larger meal service. There was not enough food to eat.
Was not given boarding passes at Brussels Lufthansa check in. Told to get them at the gate in Munich.
They canceled my flight yesterday from Columbus Ohio so why ur sending me this shit
Pros: "Safety of aircraft"
Cons: "Parents called as soon as the delayed flight caused the young teen to miss her flight, Lufthansa operator verifies only by phone that young teen had a seat in the next flight, UNTRUE! She was ignored at counter, mr. M. Meindle told her to step aside and it was not “worth arguing”! The people she sought direction from, are the ones that left her confused and ignored. Shame on them"
Pros: "Great flight and food options."
Cons: "The seats we were in were where it went from 4 in a row to 3, so the telvisions were not directly in front of us, and i had to keep my head turned at an angle for ten hours. It sounds silly, but my neck hurt after the flight a little. Might be a pop out tv you can attach that is moveable to fix this"
Pros: "Hydration station during the long flight. Leg room adequate."
Cons: "They checked my bag at the gate - despite me traveling all over the world NEVER having to check it - and would not take no for an answer, despite me having a 25 minute connection due to their one hour delay. Once boarded there was an incredible amount of empty overhead bins! Bag didn't make it"
Pros: "The Agent at the Lufthansa baggage location services was very nice and helpful."
Cons: "The flight from Copenhagen to Brussels was delayed long enough that I barely made my connecting flight to Frankfurt. However, my luggage did not. I hope it will arrive today."
Pros: "Friendly crew, tried their best to accommodate"
Cons: "Boarding was delayed and once in the plane more delay followed. Food was pasta (again!) while entertainment was non-existent. Flight is long enough to show at least a route map."
Pros: "The process and the food. Plane was much too crowded and the seats were impossibly tight. Zero leg room."
Cons: "More leg room."
Pros: "We struggled to get the system to add our bags. Never got it to work and had to pay at check-in. It was even worse coming back! When bad weather caused delays and we missed our connecting flight from Frankfurt to Istanbul they put us on Turkish Airlines which was fabulous!!"
Cons: "Lufhtansa is slipping. They are acting like a budget airline when the expectation is for a full service airline. The online check-in would not let us add bags even though we tried for 3 hours. Not impressed with this."
Cons: "The flight had a departure delay of three hours. That was not fun"
Cons: "It was Air Canada. Terrible service. Staff needs education on where to take travelers thru the immigration locations. Wasted time going to different locations and time is an essentence! Too many changes of staff from one location to another when it came with wheelchair assistance. One staff was on her personal phone!!! Had 3 different changes of hands then still did not get us to the right terminal, had to run to make the flight! Is that how you treat a 86 years old traveler?"
Pros: "Nice plane, free checked bag, and a snack,"
Cons: "Left 20 minutes late as the copilot was late, middle row seat (as I refused to pay the seat choice charge, (and it was only a one hour flight.)"
Cons: "United connection in San Francisco was over 2 hours late, didn't arrive home until 2:30AM."
Pros: "Crew was alright"
Cons: "Frankfurt Airport unfriendly and depressed as usual."
Pros: "On time flight with no problems"
Cons: "Uncomfortable seats so hard to sleep during flight"
Pros: "family line at check in made boarding a breeze."
Pros: "service was very good,"
Pros: "I was pleasantly surprised to be offered an after dinner brandy, or a Bailey's. O"
Cons: "On both flights. The ear phone did not work correctly. Minor issue."

Cons: "Lufthansa is a big name must do something for that"
Pros: "Food, drinks, crew hel;pful"
Cons: "Boarding was not orderly, stupid system of delayed displaying of gate assignment"
Pros: "Courteous and friendly staff - did enjoy my gluten free meal"
Cons: "Economy seats leave no room for relaxed arms - i had mine in front of me for 9 hours as the seat was SO small! As am I!!"
Pros: "Entertainment options were good"
Cons: "Being in last row they ran out of food options for us and attendants were not very polite. Seat was less comfortable due to the tight spacing of the last row and having passengers "hangout" directly behind you throughout the flight."
Pros: "Great crew. Leg room reminded me of old days flying comfort."
Cons: "Flight was continually delayed, 15 by 15 minutes until 4 hours had elapsed."
Cons: "Hickups in entertainment screens. Seats seem te be smaller again Rows without windows"
Pros: "The crew was nice Checking was quick and painless Entertainment had a limited options but good"
Cons: "Very limited food options. I get it is not first class but not everyone likes only chicken or fish"
Cons: "This flight was the second leg on my trip from New York to Munich. Many people on the flight from NY to Brussels were scheduled on this flight and that plane landed in time that this flight would only need to be delayed 10 minutes to allow for us to connect. However, they decided to leave all of us with a long unexpected layover in Brussels, costing many of us a day of what was supposed to be a short vacation for most."
Pros: "No surprises Plenty of leg space for economy Good food"
Pros: "I like that they doesn't take so much time for boarding"
Cons: "A cookie would be better than a Corny in short flight"
Cons: "This was an Air Canada flight. Time in line to check baggage in Frankfurt was 2+ hours, baggage was lost but arrived the next day at our destination. Unable to check-in online ahead of time for unknown reasons. Overall the Air Canada ground experience was pretty bad, but the crew/meals/entertainment was good."
Cons: "The flight was about 45 minutes delayed but it was okay with me since I had connection flight and I had a long connecting time."
Pros: "That the plane brought me safely to San Diego"
Cons: "Paid entertainment on a 12 hour flight"
Pros: "Decent flight. Nice crew. Clean cabin."
Cons: "We booked these flights expecting Lufthansa. Little disappointed to learn they were Brussels airlines. Inflight entertainment options and meal options don't seem to be as good. Flight crew was pleasant and fine. After learning it was Brussels airlines I went through their check-in process for families and requested kid-friendly meals, but nothing came of it. Slightly disappointed."
Pros: "USB at every seat"
Cons: "Flight got canceled, everything was slow."
Pros: "Crew was helpful. Liked the ice cream bars"
Cons: "Repetitive food choices. Same movies as last month so if you take long trips,you run out of options. I spent 28 hours on flights in Nov and Dec"
Pros: "Friendly service, everything very organized, calm atmosphere on board"
Cons: "Entertainment options pretty limited, personnel at check in for flight rather rude"
Pros: "On board entertainment and it's equipment"
Cons: "Food was lousy. Worst I've experienced . Below par to airlines such as Singapore, Cathay or Japan airlines. Lufthansa food and crew is similar to air china now . Before this travel I used to enjoy flying with Lufthansa."

Pros: "Great plane Great food Great movies"
Pros: "The crew was very nice and provided snacks even though the flight was short"

Cons: "Too much sugary bread as nourishment."
Pros: "The chairs were the comfiest I've ever flown in!! Amazing"
The flight from Rome to Ams was delayed. The flight from AMS to Moscow was missed. - We spent 2h in a linewaiting for the service desk to rebook the tickets - Then, we spend more than an hour to get the hotel - Then waiting for the shuttle another 30 minutes Unexpectedly poor and slow service. The next working day is ruined with the flight in the middle
Swift clean friendly on time
Travelling from Nigeria was a nightmare. Those thugs at the airport gave my husband and i hell because we had our boarding passes on our phone. We had to keep bribing and begging them to let us through. It is the worse travel experience I’ve ever ever had in my entire life. And I travel a lot
Pros: "Friendly crew, great access to a variety refreshments, robust entertainment library."
Cons: "No suggestions."
Pros: "Food was great, movie selection too. Everything was great except for I couldn’t really get comfortable to sleep"
Cons: "Not sure how to make the seats more comfortable. I have some back issues though. However, some of my travel companions slept right through the flight."
Cons: "Nothing. Flight was amazing"
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: "Flight was on time."
Cons: "Staff: from check in to landing, they could at least smile. Baggage claim was a nightmare, 6 Schengen flights in the same belt."
Cons: "Flight got cancelled"
Pros: "The crew was pleasant"
Cons: "Baggage checkin & flight boarding was slow & disorganized."
Pros: "The aircraft"
Cons: "No overbooking next time!"
Pros: "Crew was nice and pleasant"
Cons: "Flight very late"
Pros: "Crew helpful. Food good."
Cons: "Better range of movies please"
Cons: "Flight got delayed 30 minutes"
Pros: "Seats super comfy. Ended up with 3 seats to myself that formed a bed for the lap Uk to NZ. Very nice!"
Pros: "Pleasant flight"
Cons: "We were delayed & missed our connection"
Pros: "The entertainment was amazing"
Cons: "The seats were a bit hard"
Cons: "There was no wifi on flight"
Cons: "They left my bag off the plane. Ridiculous."
Pros: "Like the overall KLM experience"
Cons: "Food could have had better quality and the stewardess served it all at once versus in the various courses."
Pros: "Crew were friendly and helpful. Moved me up front in the plane so I could make my connection."
Cons: "Not having to walk outside in Edinbur4gh to board the flight."
Cons: "We were changed from KLM to Airiltalia without any information sent so only because I tried to check in did I find out the flight on KLM was cancelled and we were changed to Airitalia. The Airitalia flight was very mediocre."
Pros: "The crew was amazing and the food was great."
Cons: "Something did not go right with our booking so it took some work for the airline to get it figured out for us. Thankfully we had left plenty of time. But that was an unexpected stress."
Pros: "Time was excellent even considering a connection delay they had. Very polite crew members. Good entertainment options."
Cons: "Cabin was crowded. Leg room was scarce, short seating space. Almost no room for sleeping if you're not a frequent economy traveler."
Pros: "Friendly and efficient crew. Flights were on time if not even early."
Pros: "Once aboard the plane, all went well and I experienced excellent service from the cabin attendants."
Cons: "The flight was delayed (again!) for some 40 minutes and I was worried that I would miss my connection flight in Atlanata. Fortunately the pilot made up for the delay (probably costing the airline thousands in fuel). It seems these days that every KLM flight I take is delayed. This stretch goes back to 2015! Yet KLM prides itself as being punctual. Not the KLM that I have been flying!"
Pros: "Flight duration"
Cons: "Very stingy with the drinks Cramped seats"
Pros: "Nothing to mention"
Cons: "Crew was rude when I asked if there was a vegetarian option for the snack. I did request special meals for the trip. Even if they did not have a vegetarian option, they don't need to be rude!! Boarding was ridiculous. we were supposed to form a line and wait. Would have been a lot better if they boarded by seat numbers. Also they made me check in my fairly small and light carry on bag resulting in its contents arriving broken!"
Cons: "I’ve traveled a lot internationally and this was the WORST flight I’ve ever had to endure. I felt like I was being tortured and didn’t sleep at all and so slept when getting into Amsterdam rather than being able to explore the city. I was out $200 for the Airbnb (could’ve stayed in the airport cheaper) and $200 for a dinner cruise I slept through. NEVER AGAIN"
Pros: "Was happy to pay extra 45.5 pounds for laugages which was hidden"
Cons: "Not happy to pay extra money for my case"
Cons: "Our lougage did not arrive"
Cons: "The flight advertised meals..a small pastry was served an hour into the flight. I asked when the meal would be and was told a few hours...which turned out to be breakfast..i wated all night for food that only came an hour before landing. Now hungrey and tierd.I.will not be flying klm ever again !!"
Cons: "Very slow service at checkin, was not even available when I arrived at the airport"
Pros: "Comfort was better than on the previous Dash-8. Food was OK."
Cons: "Despised the cold temperature and cold draft in world business even with all vents shut off...gave me a head cold. Boarding was disorganized. There was no sense of direction; ergo, everyone was jumping in."
Pros: "I slept pretty much the whole time"
Cons: "Flight departed 35 minutes late"
Cons: "Flight was cancelled."
Pros: "Need better quality tvs for such a long flight and better movies There were only 4 Bollywood movies and not the latest ones either"

Cons: "Cramped seating."
Pros: "Nice crew; clean plane; decent dinner"
Cons: "No entertainment system; insufficient knee space"
Pros: "Arrived Early!"
Cons: "Left Late :-)"
Pros: "crew were absolutely delightful, full of smiles and doing everything to make you comfortable. seats were fine enough and got some work done and a bit of sleep. first lunch was fresh and tasty, but the second, a burger, was edible, but not much more."
Cons: "tv screens are dated so movies are not as crisp as you find in newer planes. you need a 2 prong audio adapter to use your own headphones."
Cons: "Please Endeavour to put the expiration date on the food served in the flight."
Cons: "Headset jack only worked if the headset plug was in EXACTLY the right spot."
Cons: "una valija se perdió. Eso desató el descontrol que tiene KLM para seguir el equipaje. No hay como hacer tracking. No hay un teléfono a donde hablar, la web está desactualizada y con información equivocada. Direccionan a usar canales de twitter y facebook que no responden. Primer experiencia en KLM y no pienso nunca más usar esta aerolínea. Llevar el equipaje o resolver un problema sobre valijas es de lo más básico de una aerolínea y no lo hacen."
Pros: "Ground staff at Manchester very helpful"
Cons: "Information on KLM website and flight status said 50 minutes delay and was never updated with the true status. 3 hours before we took off. KLM blamed the fog at Manchester but to be honest most other flights seemed unaffected. Put up in an IBIS hotel and fed substandard food and shitty hotel room with an Aircon unit that clunks into action every 30 seconds keeping me awake. It's external so I can't switch it off. Being given a 10 Euro voucher for food at the airport when most food and a drink will cost you 12 to 15 euros."
Some drinks and basic snack will be good. Water should be served at least once an hour. Blankets for folks who might be cold.
Cons: "Not enough room, way too crowded, all food is charged, entertainment content is pre-historic. A lot of room for improvement for the price you pay"
Cons: "They need to check the tv screens. On two different IcelandAir planes my screen wasn't working."
Cons: "Terrible meal options for an overseas flight. Discount airline-style buy your own meals not clear when purchasing ticket, poor drink service. Poor entertainment options. Ticket price did not reflect bare basics discount airline class of flight and service. Very disappointing."
Pros: "free entertainment, friendly crew"
Cons: "snacks, food for free"
Pros: "I bought the ticket from Iceland Air because their flights schedule dovetailed nicely with a traveling companion."
Cons: "On the eve of my departure, I was informed that my return flight had been cancelled and rescheduled without: any offer of compensation, or, an offer of alternative flight arrangements. Pleas to address the situation were totally ignored. This, I believe, is an unconscionable way to run an airline."
Pros: "The crew was friendly and professional. They came around often with water, which was key."
Cons: "The boarding process was strange. We landed onto a bus and boarded the plane on the tarmac- all fine. But it would have been nice to have an announcement as we arrived at the gate “ladies and gentlemen traveling to Denver, we will begin boarding in a few moments. Here is how this will go or this is"
Pros: "Good selection of movies to watch"
Cons: "Beverage service needs to be done more than twice on a 7.5 HR flight."
Pros: "Food on business class was good. The coffee was excellent."
Cons: "I had to wait almost one hour at check in. The person in charge said there were "issues" with my visa. She allowed me to board to Reykjavik and said the issues would be solved as I flew. I had to check in again at Reykjavik. There was no "issue" with my visa and I was received normally at my destination. Comfort level on business class was sub-par and options on entertainment center very limited."
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: "I had sprained my ankle the day before my flights, and the crew were all very nice and accommodating for me."
Cons: "I didn't like the fact that when I booked my flight, I was misled to believe that my checked baggage was included. The message said that "cabin baggage was included", but since when is cabin baggage NOT included?? I was surprised to find out when I was checking in that I had to pay an extra 50 Euros to check my luggage in, which I was really not happy about since the flight itself was already so expensive."
Cons: "The check-in process was horrible. It took over an hour to drop off our bags and get a boarding pass."
Pros: "Iceland Air personnel were super accommodating, in Seattle on the ground and in he air."
Cons: "Swissport personnel in Europe were awful. Bags were delayed in Amsterdam for over an hour after landing. Check in at Brussels was also an hour long queue. Boarding in the terminal in Iceland was very disorganized."
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."
Pros: "Good movie selection?"
Cons: "I had to pay for extra luggage, because though I paid for an Economy Standard ticket which does come with checked-in baggage, there was nothing written on my ticket to prove it. I paid for the standard ticket ahead of time specifically. Although the staff were nice enough, for a struggling student, this mix-up was unacceptable. I now find myself making calls and trying to get in contact with both Kayak and Icelandair for a refund of the 88euro. I think I was particularly unlucky, because I was picked twice for special security checks, which pulled me out of the line I was waiting in while the flight was delayed, and I had to re-enter the line at the end. Though I requested window seats, I did not receive one either time (though I knew it wasn't guaranteed). There was also no overhead storage space for carry-ons overhead, so I had to make my way to the front of the plane to store my backpack, and several of those who came after me had to sit with their carry-ons on their lap. The seats were also pretty uncomfortable with a thick unadjustable headrest; and the air quality was terrible, a bit smelly and very dry. As a frequent flyer (who does fly with icelandair occasionally) this was unusual."
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: "Nothing good about this airline"
Cons: "Forget about comfortable experience during the flight. The way how they list the ticket from Kayak is the scam. Stated Economy class on Kayak and their own website ticket info. Once you chek in, they will stated this is the cheapest economy ticket, doesnt allow any baggage, and you have to pay I think around $150 for round trip baggage. End up with just to carry on, wouldnt able to shop in Europe. If you includ baggage flight would be similar to other airline provide baggage and quality services. Huge mistake, customer service located overseas, and dont care about customer."
Cons: "Typical flight now days. Seats are too small for comfort. There needs to be action by regulators of aviation industry to increase space for coach passengers. I think these regulators should be required to fly coach three times a year in a coach seat on flights of three hours or more."
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.)"
Pros: "Everything went okay for us on this flight. In the future, I will suggest to my wife, who books air travel for us to read the fine print. The cost to check a bag was $100.00 which would have run us $300.00 for the trip: Boston to Brussels with a layover in Reykjavik, but on the return Brussels to Reykjavik with four days in Iceland and the return to Boston, so there goes the cheap flight! I did enjoy the in-flight movie and a documentary on the return trip as well."
Cons: "My own earphones on the flight from Brussels to Iceland did not work. I could not plug them into the system."
Pros: "My exit aisle seat was just great, with no one on either side of me !!!!! Very kind airplane staff. I had a great sleep."
Pros: "Clean plane and facilities. Nice crew. Email notifications of delays"
Cons: "Multi-hour delays - strike induced on outbound flight, weather induced on return flight. Email notifications were nice but inconsistent. Expensive food."
Pros: "Second time I have flown to Brussels with Iceland Air. I love their customer service and especially the flight route. My flight going over was cancelled due to weather. I called their reservation office , had to wait on hold for 1 hour and 15 minutes , but it was worth it. The reservation agent found me a new flight on LH, she explained I would get a conformation about 3 hours after our conversation with the flight information and new txt information. I was able to check in with LH on line that evening. Iceland Air had every pre assigned seats for me."
Cons: "The boarding process in Kevlavik is pretty awful. No seating around gate areas. You have to stand in line for about 30 minutes to then have to get on shuttle to be driven to plane where you have to walk on stairs to get to plane, or in some cases you actually get to board from the terminal, which happened yesterday. I have MS,and sometimes standing for long periods of time and then having to climb up stairs is difficult for me. I also see a lot of elderly people and parents with babies having difficulty with this boarding process. Their airport really needs major expansion for the amount of people that travel thru their. Seating araes around their gates should be a priority."
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: "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: "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"
Pros: "Good price and short layover. The plane was clean and comfortable."
Cons: "The boarding process in Reykjavik was chaotic. Food and entertainment available for PURCHASE."
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: "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: "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"
Pros: "Our high-school friend had never flown before and she needed to come home early from our trip to Germany. You all treated her so well, and made her trip home pleasant. Thank you."
Pros: "I liked that the pilot communicated with the passengers regarding when to expect the turbulence and the timing."
Cons: "i didn't like that my flight was delayed for 2 and a half hours and that I missed my flight from Boston to Slat Lake because of that delay. I had to wait in the airport overnight for the next flight next morning and the icelandic airline refused to give me a voucher for the hotel. They said that because i didn't book my flight to salt lake on the same ticket, I am not qualified for the hotel."
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."
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"
