Pros: "The short flight was fine. Crew was friendly."
Cons: "Because we arrived to LAX from SAN so late we had to run to the next gate and barely made the flight. The overhead bins were already very full so we had to stuff our stuff at our feet. Since we arrived so late it would have been better if they had allowed those with a tight connection to disembark first."

Pros: "Crew was great. The video game quiz re knowledge of cities worldwide was entertaining and educational"
Cons: "Extreme delays"
Cons: "no legroom in a first class and expensive seat"
Pros: "I liked nothing about my flight. It was like being waterboarded and held up for my money at the same time. How can you fit so many tiny seats on one plane. And then have 80 year old woman berate us if we as much as have to go to the bathroom. I understand that there is a profit margin,but treating people so poorly is a nice way to do it."
Cons: "The service, the tiny seats, the filthy plane, the gross food( why even bother?) the rude flight attendants and being told I was flying Air France when actually it was a horrible American carrier."
Pros: "Excellent crew"
Cons: "Leg room"

Lied and said the plane had left when I could see it at the gate. Every flight was delayed and lufthansa was the reason I missed my flight, but they had no remorse. They are declining in customer care and on timely departures

Pros: "I had a connection flight which would not be for another 11 hours so I left the airport to get some sleep coming back the same carry-on I have with me now cannot come with me they want me to pay 40euro. In the meantime the flight is 40% empty and plenty of over head and yes is the same size of plane I came in the first place. However the agent was nice after I explain my situation she not charges me."

Pros: "Really friendly and efficient crew."
Cons: "Seats and entertainment screen."
Pros: "Crew excellent...seats small and not too comfortable for business class."
Cons: "I was at the end of a long flight, so exhausted and feel sea sick. I cannot give good comments for this since it was short but a little bumpy flight , i almost throw up at the end."
Cons: "Food and seats"
Cons: "Due to a delayed flight the night before, we were rescheduled and consequently missed another flight. Nothing was done about this since it was a separate trip. We had to pay another $1300 for new airline tickets to get back to the US."
Pros: "Crew was amazing."
Cons: "Nothing everything was great!"
Cons: "Went First Class. What a joke! Coach seats & service. Only difference is they leave the middle seat empty. This appears to be the European standard (we flew on 3 different airlines) for 1st Class within Europe flights. Save your money, fly coach within Europe."
Pros: "It was really nice having the bassinet for our little one."
Cons: "My wife encountered a rude attendant after simply getting up and asking for water."
Pros: "okayish"
Cons: "delay could be complimented by faster speed"
Cons: "They lost my luggage during the tranfer in Frankfurt. They did return it however within 24 hours."
Cons: "No proper wheel chair assistant and made passenger miss the flight. Airlines have to take extra steps to make wheel chair passengers to reach the gate safely and on time."
Pros: "Crew was nice. I will go again with Lufthansa."
Pros: "Standard flight and comfort."
Cons: "Food was absolutely beyond horrible...and the crew would run instead of walk down aisles to wherever their dedtination was."

Pros: "Good customer service"
Cons: "Seat was not comfortable and food was not great"
Pros: "Crew"
Cons: "Crew"
Pros: "Crew was hospitable and flight was clean."
Cons: "We paid extra to have a bassinet as we were traveling with a baby. The entire row (a family) behind us was very sick, coughing, sneezing, and blowing their noses the whole flight. As we were concerned for our daughters health, we asked the flight attendants if we could lmove to the bulkhead that was open at the front of the plane. They wanted to charge us $500 EACH to move, even though the seats were open. One of the flight attendants even commented how terrible it was for our baby to have a row of sick people behind us, yet they refused to move us. Fast forward, our daughter ended up getting sick during our trip to Florence, and now my husband is sick. As such, we’ve had to miss out on things during our vacation. It would not have been difficult to move us to empty seats in the front of the plane, so we could use the bassinet we paid for. This small gesture would have made our flight and our trip much better."
Pros: "Crew did a great job making up time for late start"
Pros: "The crew was very friendly an apologetic for the delay. We had more space on the 1h inner-German connection flight than on our 7h international overnight flight with Lufthansa."
Cons: "Flight departed Duesseldorf an hour late and waited ont he ground in Munich for another 10 minutes before the gateway was connected. Not a problem for us since we were at our final destination but clearly a frustration for many of our fellow passengers. The cereal bar was a nutritional disaster and the the artifical fruit taste was simply awful. Tastes as if LH gets paid for distributing it."
Pros: "On time-well organized!"
Pros: "I enjoyed the patience of the crew and the responsibility they took with everything they did."
Cons: "The noise and the lack of space in my specific area."
Pros: "Great customer service!"
Cons: "Sometimes temperature is too warm."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Nothing"
Cons: "The security line at the Berlin airport was very long. It took almost 40 minutes and the airline was not providing information / assurances that the plane would wait."
Pros: "I have the option to have a special meal. (vegan)"
Cons: "I have to ask for my special meal in advance."
Pros: "Roomy seats and good space between rows. Didn't have the feel of being on a cattle car like most flights in the US"
Cons: "Boarding process. Felt like a mad dash just to scan your boarding pass."
Pros: "Good service.good movies.Good food."
Pros: "No vegetatarion food on return flight"
Cons: "No vegetarian food on return flight from Frankfurt"
Pros: "I upgraded to the premium food package for a small price. It was delicious and filling."
Cons: "The quality of the sound from the earphones was not very good so that made the movies less enjoyable."
Pros: "Staff was very attentive and friendly. Great service and staff always had a smile on their faces."
Pros: "Flight left on time, crew as OK"
Cons: "you'd. have to pay extra to check in luggage, not what you expect from Lufthansa. Though no problem for us, since we didn't need to check in any luggage."
Pros: "We had a very kind crew! We traveled with an infant and while boarding was a mess, the crew on board was kind and helpful and did all they could to make it a good experience."
Cons: "Air Canada Rouge operated our flight rather than Lufthansa or other similar airline. This meant that there were no tvs on board, which means the nearly 9 hour flight got very long. Boarding and check-in were also disorganized and many people from lower zones boarded before zone 1 and those with children, m among we had to stand on the ramp for a very long time holding ort baby."
Pros: "Upgrade to Economy Plus. Very comfortable seats, I am a fan! Excellent Indian veg food."
Cons: "Taking back the headsets 30 mins before landing."
Pros: "The person sitting next to me was congenial. We had a lot in common and enjoyed good conversation between movies. I also got to see two movies I misse in the theater. The trip passed quickly and enjoyably."
Cons: "There is not enough leg room on any flights for taller passengers. On long flights, more than four hours, there should be enough space for short walks around the plane."
Pros: "I appreciated the advance boarding for families traveling with younger children. Plenty of time to settle in with the kiddos."
Pros: "Everything about it ,didn't know i could get quality for less."
Cons: "Nothing really."
Cons: "Foods usually not bad but the sausage and beef was absolutely disgusting."
Pros: "Everything on the plane seems clean and well maintained - nothing is broken, worn or soiled. Lufthansa spends a little more effort than other airlines to cut down on waste when it comes to their in-flight food service (real silverware and reuseable dishes). The Munich airport is by far more convenient than Frankfurt when making connections in Germany."
Cons: "I was a bit disappointed with the limited seat availability/choices. If you cannot check in online several hours ahead of the departure you are typically left with center/middle seats in the area of the plane."
Pros: "There was nothing to like. Bus arrived late, then got stuck in traffic. Missed connecting flight to US. Nice agent though who rebooked me."
Cons: "Bus connection not a good idea with the enormous traffic on German roads!"
Pros: "Entertainment options was great."
Cons: "Passenger in front had his seat reclined the whole time, even during meals. Crew said there was sufficient space that the passenger in front did not have to put their seat in the upright position during meals."
Pros: "Twenty minutes early on arrival"
Cons: "Not necessarily a problem for others but very back of plane left no room to recline."

Dreamliner was comfortable and entertainment system good

Great flight Will go again!

Pros: "The best airline ever! Super friendly crew and staff, great customer service and nice planes. Love KLM!"
Pros: "Crew is excellent, polite and personal!"
Cons: "Plane is super old and outdated. Comfort seat is not, comfortable, very tight. TV screen is not good quality, with the old controls on a handset. No touch, no 1/8 inch audio jack (it has the old 3 holes one). Wifi for streaming freezes every other second. Just make a face lift to the plane, everything else is good."
Pros: "The crew was very kind"
Cons: "The plane is so old..,"
Pros: "Good beverage service."
Cons: "Over an hour delayj for departure."
Cons: "Dozens of high school students screaming and climbing onto seats, crew did not intervene."
Pros: "The crew are amazing! Attentive and friendly."
Cons: "The seats could have been bigger."
Pros: "well mannered and attentive crew - good supply of complimentary food/drink - good over all comfort"
Cons: "boarding was running very far behind - considering this is mainly a hub operations carrier - resulted in several passengers missing their connecting flights -"
Pros: "Crew was amazing, seats were comfortable with enough leg space even without choosing extra space seats. It was my childhood dream come true to fly with KLM. It was really an exciting trip for me, just that it was short."
Cons: "Well, for me everything was on point. Those who have never travelled with KLM, I would encourage them to do so and I’m sure they will not regret."
Pros: "Everything was good except for the entertainment consul for one of our seats."
Cons: "One of our entertainment consuls had to be rebooted 4 times and still didn’t work. We gave up asking."
Pros: "very attentive crew"
Cons: "Only ham sandwiches on offer! I'm not demanding and would have been happy with cheese."
Pros: "Good food, friendly service"
Cons: "More trash pickup; only one round of beverage service"
Pros: "Friendly and efficient crew. Flights were on time if not even early."
Cons: "Turn the lights on early making it hard to sleep"
Pros: "Crew's hospitality, good music, good destination material, terminal info, good system overall"
Cons: "Less legroom, storage space, bad food, few movie options."
Cons: "Too much light in the cabin because of too many screens on. Should have a separate part of the cabin with screens off allowing one to sleep more easily."
Pros: "The flight started with a visit in the recently renovated KLM crown lounge in Amsterdam airport. I liked the various seating options and of course the upstairs bar. The service on board was attentive and efficient, the food options I really liked (especially the Chinese dish) but also the little touches like the nuts & gouda cheese which were served in small porcelain bowls. The seat itself was very comfortable when sitting and the structure gives a lot of privacy. However for couples or friends travelling it's a bit cumbersome to have a conversation even when sitting in seats next to each other. Overall my expectations were fulfilled."
Cons: "This seat is not ideal for sleeping for taller persons (I'm 185cm tall) as the space to put the feet is very narrow and it's uncomfortable when lying on the back (as one cannot put them in the natural resting position). Cabin temperature could have been a bit lower for my taste. Crew needs better training with regards to transfer procedure in Chengdu."
Cons: "Flight canceled, poor communication from the airline to the passengers. Møre than 5 hrs delay"
Cons: "Not enough leg room"
Cons: "Poor food, flight attend and finally baggage missing. Overall experience is extremely bad."
Pros: "Nice flight ...was comfortable travel ...good food.Thanks"
Cons: "No such things"
Pros: "kLM staff was great."
Pros: "Travel on Crostian Airlines did not pappen. KLM flight to Munich was cancelled and I was rescheduled on Air Setbia to Belgrade, the Split."
Cons: "That it didn’t happen."
Cons: "The movie selection did not seem extremely varied."
Cons: "The cabin crew was racist. She told me to move back from an empty seat just because she wanted one of the guys ( from her country ) to set on it! Very rude and racist."
Pros: "He missed it due to having a 32 minute layover, which he ran all the way to board."
Cons: "he had no choice but to look at the closed door of his flight, and wait an additional 7 hours and they didn't even give him a voucher for food. I'm his mother, I'm currently visiting family in Scotland, so couldn't help him much. I'm pretty disgusting and disappointed by the whole experience."
Pros: "expedited check in with nice staff. Security staff were pleasant, and the entire check in process for everything was easy"
Cons: "there was no lounge close to our departure gate"
Cons: "Delay can occur sometimes but it wiuld be better to be explained its reason and the estimated time for boarding. The customer service at CDG airport was the worst ever and all people standing boarding desk were useless without any mind what they are doing."
Cons: "Unaccompanied minor flying to Lisbon overnight. Bag was lost. No real effort to assist. Bags of unaccompanied minor should be treated with priority."
Pros: "Premium economy service was good."
Cons: "Inexplicably, our preassigned seats were changed at checkin and we were put in bulkhead. This particular Boeing aircraft is pretty poorly designed. Especially the bulkhead in premium economy."
Pros: "Absolutely nothing!"
Cons: "the connection flights was the worse! The gate was changed in Amsterdam 3 times! From D82 to C6 and then to C11. The distance between B82 and C was 20-30 minutes walk. No rushing was needed though, the flight was delayed for 1:30h and after we all boarded a further delay was announced. I will never fly with KLM."
Pros: ".Very much on time with pleasant service."
Cons: "Can nit find much fault fir a short run!"
Pros: "The staff was extremely pleasant. Food was good!"
Cons: "Have no complaints"
Cons: "Boarding was a free for all. The travelers did not pay attention to the priorities."
Pros: "The food and the punctuality"
Cons: "The technology in interteiment is not touch screen"
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: "The flight attendants could not do enough for you."
Cons: "Business class was pretty empty but again I was not allowed to change my seat selection online. Pathetic check-in."
Cons: "Old airplane with not really comfy seats. No outlets for charging devices. Very old entertainment screen."
Pros: "Everything. Staff incredible."
Pros: "The crew were just amazing, such lovely male stewards! They were helpful and friendly and generally wonderful."
Cons: "The entertainment was quite dated and didn't have new movies etc"
Cons: "The bags where damaged from the staff"
Pros: "Everytime she passed she was hitting me or I had to hold my drink so that she wouldn't knock it off"
Pros: "The constant supply of food that was offered to you. The crew was nice and always helpful."
Cons: "The process of boarding in Amsterdam was not organized and felt more stressful than it needed to be."
Pros: "Short layover connecting from US flight and luggage transferred ok to destination. Food option not great but at least they didn't charge for it unlike some other airlines. No entertainment but to be expected on such a short flight."
Pros: "Flight crew on flight from Amsterdam to Cape Town were probably the most friendly and enthusiastic I've experienced and no, they were not all young. The plane was spotless throughout the flight. They were always coming around with water and juice and they genuinely seemed to care about all the passengers. The Flight back crew were just the opposite. More like the old lazy farts you get on the American carriers or BA or QF long haul. Whoo have been there for the long haul and should have stopped ages ago."
Cons: "The Entertainment images on the screens promoted Beauty and the Beast, Batman Lego movie but neither were on the system! Food quality was rubbish"
Pros: "I ended up getting home with less delay than originally predicted. I guess that's a good thing Also delta customer service was super polite and trying to help when I called"
Cons: "Delay again... seems to be pretty frequent on KLM flights at least on the ones I flew with in the past 4 years... this time it was 3hours wait due to a technical issue... no alternative flight option and we ended up getting a very old plane as a replacement. In addition people at info terminals are disorganized and not kind at all.."
Pros: "Excellent service and comfortable flight"
Cons: "Flight delay roughly an hour"
Pros: "Quick and efficient flight. Crew very organized. Great language skills"

Everyone was super nice! Plane was clean. The food was good. The long flight was made very pleasant by SAS.

First time flying with SAS. Decent budget airline. Didn’t like having to pay for snacks and drinks. Seats were comfy. Took off over an hour late after sitting at the gate. Nice crew. Would probably fly them again if the price is right.

Cons: "connection information very poor"
Pros: "Great service. Very comfortable seat"
Cons: "The food especially the second meal or snack."
Pros: "The crew was very nice , and very comfortable seats ."
Cons: "Everything was great"
Cons: "."
Cons: "Could not have been better"
Pros: "Everything!!! Excellent service"
Pros: "Flight was on time. Bathrooms were clean."
Cons: "Dinner and breakfast were terrible, especially for a long transatlantic flight. Attendants were curt. Movie selection was subpar compared to other airlines on similar flights I’ve taken."
Pros: "Transfer time is not sufficient due to customs in Sweden customs inspection takes too long for only one staff."
Pros: "Food was excellent!"
Pros: "The crew was great and the economy seating was roomier than expected."
Cons: "Long line just to drop bag off since I had already used the kiosk to check in, then 2 1/2 hour flight delay, charged for wine which should be complimentary on international flights."
Pros: "on time"
Cons: "food selection"
Pros: "plane is clean & seats are comfy"
Pros: "Seats are pretty comfortably and spacious for economy class (I’m small though, so take that with a grain of salt). The lunch was pretty solid, would have preferred a hot breakfast. The vegetarian breakfast was grilled veggies with fruit and yogurt on the side, kind of a mish-mash of things."
Cons: "- Would have liked a better breakfast - More entertainment with subtitles (esp foreign films) - More entertainment selection"
Cons: "Mid day flight , no food or snack , how cheep will the airlines go?"
Pros: "The food"
Cons: "Counter selling me an upgrade that was more expensive than I prefer. I.e., buyers remorse"
Pros: "Services"
Cons: "Didn’t have veggies good on board"
Pros: "Top notch service , catered very much to Americans . Would definitely fly again"
Cons: "Flight was cancelled due to a bomb alert. No food or hotel compensation. Stuck in Copenhagen for a day and night."
Pros: "Nice flight, comfortable seating, blankets/pillows/headphones were provided, and food was good."
Pros: "Pros: -Good food -Good entertainment -Attentive staff"
Cons: "Cons: -Uncomfortable seats ( I took the free seat and didn't upgrade) -Poor air circulation ( I hardly felt any AC) -Lack of overall plane space"
Pros: "The crew was incredibly friendly"
Cons: "I would have appreciated a vegetarian option for the meal."
Cons: "Flight was late and they left us completely hanging at the Stockholm airport with no agents anywhere to be found and no instructions on what to do about the missed connection."
Pros: "Comfortable flight, friendly crew. Would fly again!"
Cons: "Food could have been better"
Pros: "Flight was on-time, fast, efficient boarding, on-time arrival."
Cons: "SAS is really running down quality of service. An old bird that was showing its age and interior wear. No in-flight entertainment options. Food / beverage options are not on par with expectations or other airlines. Only no-cost drink options are coffee or tea. Juice, soda, water - all for a fee. Snacks available for sale include potato chips and nuts. It's 2017 folks - up your game!"
Pros: "nothing too exciting, everything as expected.Seats were a bit tight tho"
Cons: "Food tasted Horrible"
Pros: "No problems, great crew, easy check in and on time!"
Pros: "The flight was good : excellent pilot and crew. Good takeoff and landing. Short but sweet flight."
Cons: "Leg room is a nit short for tall people. Everything else was great."
Cons: "For an international flight, only the first non-alcoholic drink is included for free. Let's say, if you want 2 orange juices, you have to pay for the second. Alcohol, of course, is not free under their system. Snacks? Forget about it."
Pros: "Even though this was an older model plane, the cabin at least did not feel like an oven, which was the case when we flew SAS to Copenhagen."
Cons: "This was a 9 hour flight where if the lights were off, a baby would sleep. Instead, the lights were left on to encourage the purchase of food/drink and airmail knick knacks."
Pros: "Everything was great! At check-in I upgraded to SAS plus. Will choose that again.comfortable, crew was so nice and friendly. Food was amazing. Made my 10 hour flight great. ."
Cons: "Crew unfriendly"
Pros: "Not enough space to store items."
Pros: "The automated kiosks made it ridiculously easy. Flying out of LAX can be a pain, but that went by so smoothly. I'm cheap and have become accustomed to Spirit airlines. So when I received free (decent) meals a complimentary bottle of water and a plethora of inflight entertainment."
Pros: "The food was good, movie choices"
Cons: "Little room to move"
Pros: "Everything. The service was great, plane was comfortable and the ride was easy. I will try to only fly SAS from now on"
Cons: "No individual seat control of airflow. The plane was very warm and there were no vents at each seat."
Cons: "8 years ago on similar flight from Lax to got, we had to retrieve checked bags in Sto, and then go through security. It was not clear at all on this trip if it was the same. SK agent at lax seemed unsure, Arlanda customer service agents at baggage in Arlanda also seemed unsure. We then learned from another airport worker at baggage they would go all the way through. It is very important to know since turn around time is very short, and I almost missed flight 8 years ago, and bags did miss it last time. Tks"
Pros: "Reasonably on time"
Cons: "No entertainment at all, no food at all, unless you are willing to pay 10 euros for a sad looking sandwich. You got water or coffe, or you overpaid. And it's not like they're giving the seats away!"
Pros: "It was weird boarding last. We understand different airlines have different policies but we believe letting the elderly and families with little children should always have first priority... We as a family and with an elderly who is not 100% well have big challenges... It is always nice for other airlines to get us in earlier so the elderly and the little children can settle. This airline's policy is a shift for us. If not for the good price, we'd choose another... But it was just ok just a longer wait... Children and the elderly should always have the best benefit... Not the busiiness people.. Crazy policy!"
Cons: "Service was mediocre. Staff was nice but not very caring like other airlines and most were older women who are burnt out... Its almost like they don't want to be there. Food was excellent but there was a charge for red wine. This is Europe. Thought the US was bad... Economy class comfort is not that comfortable as always... o well! Your staff English especially the women announcers were terrible. We could not understand hardly anything. The pilots were a lot better! Need to take English classes.. Sorry but have to be honest..."
Cons: "My suitcase was never put on my flight from LAX - ARN, despite checking in 24 hours early and arriving at baggage drop 2.5 hours before my flight. I still have not received my suitcase in Helsinki, and they can't seem to locate it. I am on vacation in Finland and have no clothes, medicine, or toiletries and everyone at SAS and baggage claim have been very unhelpful."
Pros: "New seats and entertainment consoles. Smooth flight."
Cons: "The food!"
Pros: "New and nice plane. Good amenities for coach. Good service for the most part. Food was tasty."
Cons: "Breakfast was kind of rushed. Would have liked to have been offered water, tea, and coffee more."
Cons: "My computer/media screen did not work the whole trip, nor did audio -just heard loud screeching when I plugged in my headphones. Also, the seats were very uncomfortable. Additionally, I thought we had paid for two checked bags in advance but was told we did not and so had to pay for them at the airport. I was very focused on making sure I had two checked bags paid for online when purchasing the tickets. I don't know if it's some glitch in your website or that it was just confusingly worded/phrased, but I did think I had bought the higher level package that allowed for two checked bags."
Pros: "I was informed by email the evening before my return flight back to London that the flight had been cancelled. I tried calling multiple SAS offices overnight, and finally reached someone the morning of my flight and was rebooked to a different flight, via Berlin. When I got to the airport the booking hadn't been updated, so I had to go through the entire process again with customer service. Because of the flight cancellation and the difficulties rebooking, I was not able to book my luggage so I was charged a penalty fee at the airport when I was finally checked in for the flight via Berlin, and paid much more for my bag than I should have."
Cons: "Instead of a direct flight from Los Angeles to stockholm I got three flights and two layovers just because they said They were understaffed and I ended up having a very long and terrible flight shifting from one airport to another and I did not get offered any upgrades or compensation for this inconvenience,"
Pros: "Love the fact that the plane was clean and new!"
Cons: "Wish we had more movies and more tv-shows,"
Pros: "Everything was a dream. The flight crew was very nice. The aircraft was modern and clean. Flight came with entertainment(movies and such at no hidden or extra charge) they even hand out complimentary headphones which u keep. Blankets and pillows were provided. And the food was light and healthy and wasn't bad at all. Obviously it's not fun being trapped in a small place for 10+ hours but everything else was good."
Cons: "Length of trip, however this will take some technological advances. Not much can be done to improve this yet."

Traveling these days can be a little strange and at times more difficult than normal due to this pandemic. Finnair did an amazing job and all areas of the trip! I would absolutely fly with finnair again and will recommend the airline to friends and family.

Great experience!

Flight were delayed which made me miss all the other flights. Bags are still missing from 2 weeks ago. This airline is worse the Spirit Airlines!

Pros: "A350, very comfortable and quiet. Good crew and pleasant flight"
Cons: "cabin temperature was a bit too high through the night."
Pros: "at 6"2' the large amount of leg space on Finnair flights is amazing, even in economy class I did not feel cramped."
Cons: "Food a bit bland and uninspired"
Pros: "The connection was way too tight."
Cons: "Hel-LAX flight was ok. LAX and connecting flight were bad, slow and delayed frequently."
Cons: "Could be better, say, like with Singapore Airlines.."
Pros: "The crew was nice"
Cons: "We were boarding later than expected Which caused some stress with connection flight"
Cons: "The transfer was a disaster. We had to go through the security check (even though the transfer was in the Schengen area) and almost missed our connecting flight."
Pros: "The crew was great!"
Pros: "I will recommend to my friends and families."
Pros: "it was on time"
Cons: "it was a poor food choice again."
Pros: "Had the head rests that help gold you head when you try to sleep and they didnt speak on the overhead audio so that was awesome"
Cons: "Just long flight in general."
Cons: "Layover and delay we're extremely wrong and they booked me on a separate flight from my party."
Pros: "Great service, good legroom, huge screens for entertainment, and nice Marimekko designed blankets and other items. Overall a very nice experience"
Pros: "The shorter flight to Zurich was on a smaller plane than the overseas one, but I'm not sure what model. It seemed about average for comfort; overhead bins held my backpack easily, while I find many older planes do not. Coffee or soda was free, everything else was for sale. Attendants on this flight were very busy and very friendly. Check-in was run very efficiently. My check-through luggage arrived intact. Overall a good experience on a two-hour journey. Plane arrived about 10 minutes ahead of schedule, which is always a plus."
Cons: "No real issues with this flight. it accomplished my objective - to get to Switzerland intact, with a minimum of fuss."
Cons: "Economy seat with Centre seat left empty"
Pros: "Being on time, crew was helpful, entertainment nice. The 30 min layover between JFK-HEL and HEL-SVO was perfectly organized, the gates were next to each other."
Pros: "see above"
Cons: "see above"
Pros: "I made it home safe."
Cons: "Poor boarding, delay caused us to miss connecting flight, new flight plan did not have enough time to pass though customers, bag not delivered to final destination. In office now trying to locate."
Pros: "Not having someone sitting next to me, comfortable lie flat beds albeit a bit narrow. Good food when you wanted it, big screen and ok movies, spotless toilets"
Cons: "Nothing really negative to say"
Cons: "Delayed"
Cons: "Delay"
Cons: "Wasn't given vegetarian option for food and don't eat meat."
Cons: "It is too hard to carry stuff on the stairs at the airports"
Pros: "Staff was friendly and accomodating. The food service for the long international flight was better than I expected."
Cons: "Movie entertainment options were not consistent from plane to plane. On the arriving flight, the plane had an impressive offering of movies and tv shows for passenger viewing during flight, however, on the return flight, there was much less available."
Pros: "Plane was on time Checked luggage arrived I slept for the duration of the trip which made the 5 hour flight OK."
Cons: "Legroom and seating in general is cramped. But unfortunately that is the case in today's travel experience with US carriers."
Pros: "The crew were trying to help and accommodate the bad situation."
Cons: "Couldn't check in online 24 hours ahead. When called Finnair on the phone, they couldn't check us in, told us we have to check in at counter, by then all good seats were taken and I couldn't sit next to my husband, and this is our honeymoon trip. It's a full flight and All upgrades were booked by then so couldn't even upgrade to business class. Requested a gluten free meal, no crew can figure out it that meal was on board (not in system nor on paper list), so at the end no food for me. I have been dying BA for last five years and this had to be the worst BA flight I have taken, absolute chaos at the check in counter and no organization. One BA counter agent Alexa tried to help but it is just too late. I expected more from BA."
Pros: "Direct from San Diego to Heathrow."
Cons: "The seats are very small--and I am a small woman--so the flight felt cramped. The food was just ordinary airline food--little taste. Coffee served essentially black--no offer of milk or cream. Take it or leave it-- Crew helpful if you could flag someone down. Most irritating: could not check in online for some unexplained reason and required to arrive two hours early. BA does no subscribe to TSA so spent time in a line unnecessarily. AND, then the crew arrived over an hour late so the flight left at least an hour late. The crew explained that their downtown bus did not arrive and they could not arrange one. Given the close proximity to the airport, this should have been a 10 minute cab ride."
Pros: "Temperature on flight was comfortably cool. Food was delicious and flight attendants were pleasant and attentive. The flight was full but service was prompt. Very enjoyable!"
Cons: "The lighting on my screen made it difficult to see it very well...adjusting brightness was not effective. Also, the programming selection was somewhat limited and it would have been nice to start a movie when you wanted instead of waiting."
Pros: "i got there 45 minutes before my flight and boarding crew of american airlines did everything for me to make my flight"
Cons: "boarding crew and flight crew"
Cons: "BA lost my baggage. The sandwich they offered was uneatable. Marshall Hoffman"
Pros: "Food and service"
Cons: "Seats were very small"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Flight was moved to LA. I paid more for this ticket so I did not have to fly out of LA. We were driven in uncomfortable shuttle vans. Check in and security were caiotic. Once I landed I found out no information was available to my sister who was picking me up!"
Pros: "Flight operated by BA; food was excellent, wine was free, crew were friendly."
Cons: "Legroom so cramped its dangerous; worse than on my CRJ connecting flight."
Cons: "Very old plane No leg room No tv Grumpy crew Over an hour delayed"
Pros: "courteous and helpful crew, easy calm and efficient boarding process, with a announcer who spoke CLEARLY, slowly and loud enough to hear, more comfortable plane than the AA plane I took to get to Paris."
Cons: "In flight entertainment really inferior to other airlines, food mediocre, but adequate. But good service is paramount and your crew was good despite many challenging customers."
Cons: "Entertainment system is very old, but have a good selection."
Cons: "The food was terrible , the flight was canceled from Paris to phila , i didn't know til 8 pm . It was very hard to have an other flight from London to phila. A lot of souffering for me ."
Pros: "The food and entertainment were good."
Cons: "This flight was operated by British Airways. The flight attendants on this flight were very rude and the plane was not as comfortable as the they Finnair plane."
Pros: "The crew members were very pleasant and attentive."
Cons: "The food was easily the worst I've ever had on an international flight and entertainment was virtually non-existent as the view from my "premium" bulkhead seat was obstructed by the overhead storage. This American Airways aircraft is in serious need of updating if it is to continue to be used as international transportation."
Pros: "The crew was friendly and very accommodating. Inflight entertainment had many choices, had a wonderful relaxing time. The food was not too good but then again it's airplane food. Overall, recommend the experience."
Pros: "friendly crew"
Cons: "old B757 aircraft with poor entertainment system, not suitable for long haul flights"
Pros: "Accuracy Staff Serving"
Cons: "My name was wrongly written on the passanger list."
Cons: "Most of the entertainment consoles did not work"
Pros: "Good food - two meals at just the right time."
Cons: "I regularly fly between Chicago and London and dread having to get on AA90. The planes are ridiculously old with barely any legroom and no seat-back entertainment. On this occasion, my friend sitting next to me, who is 5'10" had his knees right up against the seat in front. When the passengers in front reclined it was almost impossible to get comfortable. There is no seat-back entertainment. For some this may not be a big deal, what with iPads and other devices, but it speaks to AA's failure to consider it's customers comfort and ease on long-haul flights."
Cons: "no food on the first flight no private tv they tell you can have wi fi entertainment but you have to pay for it the staff was rude tell also told me my cary on luggage could not be taken on board because there was no more space so i had to cary all my things for two flights but once i came in into the plane there was plenty of space. the seats had a very low head rest"
Pros: "We loved the service and staff. The plane was clean."
Cons: "The video/movie system was old, and the chairs were old."
Pros: "Friendly staff did what they could to make you comfortable. Blueberry Juice!"
Cons: "Duty free sales trip down the aisle. No snack with drinks even during mealtime. All too typical cramped seats."
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."
