Choice of movies were limited
Pros: "Again, the crew was extremely polite and accomodating. I’d fly with them again!"
Pros: "Logjam Manila traffic, confusion at MNL, late for check in, but staff got me on the plane. Then my suitcase was busted open at Chicago O'Hare on the conveyor belt and ANA issued me a replacement on the spot. Two problems [ not their fault ] handled beautifully. ANA is truly amazing. Thank You !!"
Pros: "The food and the crew were great."
Cons: "I am yet to find an airline that has any semblance of comfort in economy class for someone 6’ 2”, and that isn’t even tall! It would seem that the seats should be tall enough not to have the headrest push on my shoulders.....such as making it adjustable enough to be used as a headrest."
Cons: "If there was no delay."
Pros: "Staff was great!"
Cons: "Food wasn’t the best."
Pros: "I was lucky the flight was not full and the seat next to mine was empty allowing me to relax and sleep well."

Pros: "The crew was very professional and exceptionally polite and attentive. Possibly the best I have encountered on an international flight."
Pros: "Flight was ok"
Cons: "Again I had a problem with water bottle, I asked small water bottle but they didnt give me one and i asked if they can fill my 2,5 yo water bottle they only fill it half. I asked again for water hours later and they said I need to wait because they will serve dinner (which is 30mins later) This is just very unpleasant experience and I felt like a bad person asking for only water"
Pros: "The crew are so courteous and helpful."
Pros: "It was a fast flight, the crew was very accommodating and it was very comfortable."
Pros: "Customer service on ANA was as stellar as always."
Cons: "Chairs are uncomfortably small for an international flight. Was fairly surprised since it's such a long flight."
Cons: "The food was not as good as in my previous flights."
Pros: "Big TV screen. Food."
Pros: "Outstanding customer service, I was especially impressed when the flight attendants would intermittently clean up the restrooms- something that definitely doesn't happen on US airlines. Good food as well."

Pros: "attendents were very friendly and very accommodating."
Pros: "Staff were very nice. Very fast service as well."
Cons: "Seats were a bit uncomfortable"

Cons: "Not enough choices of entertainment"
Pros: "Nice crew, clean lavatory"

Pros: "As long as I didn't fly on united"
Pros: "Great service, accommodating staff. Seats were comfortable."
Pros: "Great flight. Plenty of leg room in economy section. Attendants polite, helpful and made you feel like you their valued customer. Would fly ANA again when traveling their routes."
Pros: "Clean cabin. Courteous and friendly attendants. Inflight amenities were excellent. Meals were perfectly portioned and delicious!!!"
Pros: "Whenever given the choice, I choose United flights operated by ANA over thiose operated by United because the ANA planes are generally newer, cleaner, have far superior on board entertainment (important for 12 hour flights) food is better and crew is more responsive/ solicitous."
Pros: "Excellent in every way"
Cons: "Flight were shaking badly several times and I feel dizzy"
Pros: "Excellent service"
Pros: "Friendly and attentive flight attendants. The food were decent. The snacks through the flight were very good."

Pros: "crews are nice"
Cons: "food so so, delayed taking off at narita for 30 minutes"
Pros: "I liked the friendliness of the staff. The overall service was very nice!!"
Cons: "The seats didn't recline at all. Normally I wouldn't care but it was a 12 1/2 hour trip. There wasn't a lot of good, recent movie releases. On other airlines there was more to choose from that were more recent releases. The food wasn't very good. It had all fish choices or beef tongue. I understand having an Asian meal, but maybe should be a more popular meal with different choices than a more eclectic menu. I noticed even the child's meal was not very kid friendly."
Lots of room and great service.
The crew was attentive, professional and friendly.
Pros: "Turboprop, smaller plane, boarding stairs - always fun."
Pros: "We paid $400CAD as a OneUp bid to upgrade to Skycouch. We then saw there was a skycouch row free on the plane, and I appreciated that they gave the first choice of this row to paying customers. So we ended up with two skycouch rows, one per person. Was a dream flight, could not fault them."
Pros: "very comfortable reclining seats for sleeping. It was a lot of work for the attendants setting up each bed and then taking it apart. But for me, it was much more comfortable than the flight from SFO to ACK."
Cons: "Movies did not change from November to December. I watched 3 on the way to NZ in Nov and they were still the only 3 to interest me on the return flight. Disappointed."
Pros: "Entertainment options. Communications from captain. Dimming of cabin lights."
Cons: "Delays on both ends, including a substantial delay waiting for an open gate. Food was poor. Flight attendants were occasionally impolite."
Pros: "The crew, as always, was fantastic. Very helpful and always kind. The seats are comfortable enough, considering it was a long flight, and the excellent entertainment helped the time pass quickly."
Cons: "The boarding was inconvenient. LAX has just been updated. Gerri g a bus out to the tarmac is something I expect in Africa. Can Air NZ move to a different terminal?"
Pros: "Airline is pretty good"
Cons: "I had a horrible experience booking with Kayak because normally I should be allowed two bags to check in but I was only allowed one because I booked through kayak."
Pros: "Wellington airport is the most accessible and relaxed I’ve used, and the Air New Zealand Check-in process was the easiest I’ve used so far."
Cons: "Do not ever forget or decide not to book a checked in bag on Air NZ when booking your ticket on line. You have a bag to check at the airport they will not tell you it is $30 or $40 but gouge you for $160au. That is a total rip off and they should be embarrassed to ask for that excessive amount."
Pros: "Checking in, bag drop, and boarding were all super fast and easy. Flight was on time."
Cons: "Auckland to Chicago was fine. Chicago to Minnesota was horrible. The departure plane showed up late due to weather which is understandable. Once the plane showed up we waited for over 4 hours for a pilots to show up. Our flight could have bee managed much better, poor job by United!"
Cons: "Terrible customer service."
Pros: "Good food"
Cons: "Why so cold in the cabin!"
Cons: "They don't greet me only the people in front and behind me. I didn't receive a meal she skipped me i don't know if you have to pay or not but the person on the left of me got one and the person the right got one"
Cons: "5 hours late. Had to go to work on 2 hours sleep"
Cons: "Please check your visa requirements is your flight is just a stopover in NZ to AUS (or elsewhere) as I could not return due to unfair transit visa issues in NZ. Have to book another one way flight and pay. completely nuts. I was not warned anywhere till I reached the airport."
Pros: "arrived early at destination ground crew helpful with seating"
Pros: "The flight was good. The plane is very nice. The in-flight entertainment was good, but you have to pay for most shows/movies. The flight attendants were very nice. The landing was a bit rough. The plane kind of swayed/slide down the runway. But it was raining so it was understandable."
Cons: "Snacks aren't free. They ran out of food before they got to the back section of the plane. Most of the in-flight entertainment is not free."
Cons: "More leg space should be given to who have height to6”1’ or so."
Pros: "It was operated by air New Zealand so the service was top notch once I was able to resolve all other issues boarding."
Cons: "We had a flight bought on virgin Australia and operated with air New Zealand. The air New Zealand part was all great plane boarding etc, the horrible part is that we bought baggage allowances with virgin and they never transferred the information to air New Zealand. So there I am from the USA in a foreign country boarding a flight being asked to pay 500 nz dollars for a few kilos when I had already paid for it. Having to produce emails and payment information on something I had done months in advance. Overall I won’t recommend virgin next time I’d book directly with air New Zealand"
Pros: "The seats are super comfy and the staff are lovely and very attentive to ones needs. The only down fall would be that I had to pay for movies and a meal wasn’t included with my flight, but that’s minor. Also, baggage cost me 120.AUD for one bag! I thought that was pretty outrageous for one check in bag. But the pilot was very good and informative as the overall flight was smooth. Thanks again air New Zealand."
Cons: "Over priced check in bag. Due to it not being according to weight. Ridiculous."
Pros: "Very friendly and accommodating staff. Good food, comfortable seats, and excellent entertainment choices."
Cons: "I selected two bags on kayak but when I checked in at Air New Zealand they said I just had tickets. Was forced to pay the full price for the baggage."
Pros: "Top quality flight"
Cons: "The black boxes next to your feet are oddly placed and limit leg room."
Pros: "The staff lady told me to there’s no food available then I told I need to buy it last time my flight was Jetstar was good even everyone can buy food on board but leta I called Chinese lady understood how I was hungry she brought me bread with batter and coffee that’s was good and best service I always thank to her service"
Pros: "Smooth operation once onboard"
Cons: "Boarding sequence mix-up"
Pros: "The crew and plane was tops"
Cons: "It is very long, but that is no reflection on you."
Cons: "Someone sitting in my seat already!"
Cons: "Economy was too squished. Hard to eat with people next to you."
Cons: "Couldn't check in online and book seats. That was a bummer."
Pros: "Extra leg room at front of plane."
Cons: "Seats too narrow."
Pros: "Everything was perfect"
Pros: "Comfortable, clean, helpful crew, charging for devices, good meal, very pleasant experience altogether would definitely fly Air NZ again."
Cons: "Airplane to cold. Had to wear a sweatshirt and cover up with a blanket the whole flight."
Pros: "Boarding from last row first"
Cons: "Food was just okay."

Pros: "The food and service was great"
Pros: "Great crew, great entertainment"
Cons: "Wasn't a fan of the dinner but no big deal"
Pros: "After finding it in the airport everything went extremely well. Able to find the flights and get to the gates with plenty of time. I did not have access to my email, but did see all the notices and appreciate that. Will travel with email access in the future."
Pros: "Everything :)"
Pros: "Good with kids Clean new planes"
Pros: "I absolutely adored Air New Zealand. The airplane itself was a ball of fun with its purple lights. The flight crew was funny and charming, and quite attentive to people who wanted snacks and beverages. Great selection of movies."
Cons: "I hated that it costs $150 for an extra (2nd) checked in luggage. If you are flying international, typically you get 2 free checked in luggages. This caught me by surprise, and I wish it was brought to my attention before I went to the airport. The seats were okay, didn't recline as much as I would've liked. But overall I enjoyed my ANZ flight."
Pros: "The crew was super friendly and accommodating. They found solutions for any questions or difficulties we had. They checked any excess luggage before you boarded. Boarding the plane was done back to front which was nice in loading bags and passenger without waiting for people in front of the plane. Meal service was promptly served so complimentary alcohol. Both meals were appreciated on such a long flight."
Cons: "Only suggestion would be bottles of water that you can keep refilling."
Pros: "Nice quiet flight"
Cons: "Crew member attitude specifically regarding passengers in the emergency rows"
Cons: "Headphone port was plugged full of something"
Pros: "The crew was great. However I have had issues with take offs and landings with Alaska the last two times I’ve flown with them. Literally have been stuck for more than an hour on the tarmac both times."
Cons: "I think that Family’s with young children need to have their own area in the plane. I was screamed at and kicked by children for most of this flight. The extra hour on the tarmac was torture."
Pros: "Love the entertainment options with my own device, food, and power at the seat"
Cons: "Entertainment was disrupted. Departure was delayed by delayed departure of the previous flight without enough explanation to those of us waiting to board"
Pros: "Comfortable and relaxed cabin"
Cons: "Friendlier crew as no smile and pleasantries"
Pros: "Alaska is the friendliest airline, throughout every touchpoint we have with them."
Pros: "The crew"
Cons: "Communication with delays and seat changes when planes change."
Cons: "Flight delayed. Delayed. Delayed. Seat changed without notice. Flight attendants were a bit rude."
Pros: "Crew was amazing Plane clean great Pilots awesome"
Pros: "Um rude staff who couldn’t even be bothered to tell us where we would claim our bags, with ORD being a bit unclear for Alaska Airlines. Seriously, just communicate and be polite human beings."
Pros: "The cheese and fruit tray is great."
Cons: "Boarding takes forever. The seats are too narrow."
Pros: "Arrived 30 min early"
Cons: "Having a gate at ORD. Waited on runway for 1.5 hours"
Pros: "The crew, boarding process, baggage check in, everything really is just a breeze."
Cons: "Please refresh the seats a bit. I know space is limited and getting tighter all the time, I get that, but please improve the comfort of the seats. They're unbearable after 30 min."
Pros: "My bags were about 3 pounds heavier than allowed and she let me in with them. The crew is overall very nice and professional."
Pros: "Free movies was great."
Cons: "Missing luggage. Please help"
Pros: "On time departing and landing."
Pros: "All the stewardess' and pilots were very friendly and even noticed that they were friendly to one another. Planes were clean, seats were comfortable. It was my first time flying at 54 years old and the stewardess' checked with me several times to see how I was doing and even the pilots spoke to me about my fear of flying prior to take off. All in all Alaska is great to take care of their passengers the way they did. They seemed to go the extra mile on both my flights."
Pros: "Seats are comfortable and feel roomier than most, boarding was easy, flight was turbulant but still comfortable and even arrived early, fantastic crew, never have an issue."
Cons: "The following are not complaints just my review of the topics given: I did not purchase any food on my Alaska flights because there were no plant based (vegan) options. I was unable to use the in-flight entertainment that was advertised (many times) for unknown reasons."
Pros: "Several great movie options."
Cons: "No free, little packs of food, and very small options list that was overpriced."
Pros: "Great crew. Boarding process."
Pros: "timeliness, courteous, comfortable, charging outlets at every seat."
Cons: "weak movie selection"
Pros: "New aircraft with plugin for laptop, free movies, and WiFi for a price. Friendly and professional crew. Totally productive flight. Alaska Air is my new favorite."
Pros: "I liked the food options and the entertainment. Staff was really friendly too,"
Pros: "On time."
Cons: "Slow boarding and deplaning."
Pros: "The flight was comfortable"
Cons: "Everything was good"
Cons: "Put on an American carrier despite having booked with Alaskan. Told the wrong gate. Then told the incorrect boarding time at the correct gate. Missed flight due to gate keeper. Had to gheck my back on the next flight despite ample room to carry on. EVERYONE that works for American Airlines is incompetent, rude and terrible. I WILL NEVER FLY YOUR AIRLINE AGAIN. Your company should be sold off and every employee fired."
Pros: "A straight flight"
Cons: "The fact that I watched the crew throw my luggage 5 feet and broke things in my suitcase. The won't do anything about it"
Pros: "Everything other than the seats"
Cons: "Seats. Especially when I paid more for Exit seats and found out the first row of exit seats did not recline."
Pros: "Friendly crew, clean plane, loved that there was USB and power outlets in every seat, on time departure and arrival"
Pros: "Friendly cabin crew, wonderful food, spacious aircraft, wonderful option to get a tablet to watch a movie. Loved being able to plug in at each seat with USB charger etc."
Pros: "The aircraft was comfortable. I just had a standard coach seat and it was as roomy as other airlines premium economy seats. Alaska airlines had reasonably priced food and drinks, and the entire flight crew was friendly and professional. I also liked the free GoGo texting feature."
Cons: "For some reason the airplane left the gate about 40 minutes late. It was also very difficult to hear the announcements from the flight deck. The only announcement that came through loud and clear was the spiel for the Alaska Airlines credit card."
Pros: "I have been very pleased flying Alaska Airlines."
Cons: "This flight was rather turbulent but not the fault of the airline. Still on time."
Pros: "I really liked that Alaska Airlines are on time. Also that they board the back of the plane first after first class."
Cons: "There was a little snafu with my connecting flight from Seattle to Portland. My luggage did not make it on the plane but my husband's did. I was misinformed at the airport after I put a claim in as to when it would be delivered."
Pros: "Very professional staff yet personable, helpful with questions r/t the flight. Great flight and great landing! I love that you do not have to pay for every single thing and that the weight limit on luggage is still at 50 lbs! Definitely will use this airline again!"
Pros: "My flight was on time and checking in was made super easy and fast. One of the flights was a bit delayed but that was the weather so I didn't even mind because the staff was attentive."
Pros: "The crew was friendly."
Cons: "I was not allowed to use the restroom when we still had 20 minutes or so to land. As they were collecting final garbage, the restrooms were locked and I was not allowed to use them. I can understand cutting off the use of them once the flight crew is seated but they were still walking around and I really had to go. I don't recall a warning for this. If there was an announcement it was not audible over the hum of the engine. I'm very dissatisfied about that final part of my experience."
Pros: "Crew was very friendly"
Cons: "ran out of many meal types"
Cons: "Wondering why a very intoxicated man was asked to sit next to me. He had two deep cuts in his fingers, couldn't focus on sitting down, awful hygiene, was sold two vodka cocktails, and he hit his eye on the straw because he fell to sleep then woke up to drink more. I felt very uncomfortable throughout the entire flight and would like to speak with someone from Alaska Airlines."
Pros: "Both my flights were great, and especially my outgoing flight from Chicago, the attendants at the gate were amazing. I don't think I've ever met more helpful, nice attendants--nothing seemed rushed, and they were helpful and happy. Similarly, the attendants on the flight were really nice and cheerful. Flights left on time, and I got in early on my first flight. I've flown a lot in the last year, but this was one of my better experiences with an airline. Check-in was really easy too."
Cons: "I requested an aisle seat because I have broad shoulders and a knee that hurts if I can't extend it. EVERY TIME a particular stewardess would pass, she'd SLAM into my shoulder, with no care or apology. This was very hard to enjoy a drink, or sleep, or do anything on the flight."
Pros: "Wonderful seat and attendants."
Pros: "Staff and crew were very friendly and accommodating. Flight was good and on time."
Cons: "I had arrived from Ft. McMurray more than 3 hours before my connection, but was was paged for a search just 30 minutes before my flight boarded. Delays in security meeting me almost made me miss my flight. I didn't understand why they waited so long to do the search. It should have been done when I first got there."
Pros: "The staff was friendly and efficient"
Pros: "Seats, beer selection, very friendly staff I will be flying again if I get the chance and I never say that anymore about other carriers."
Pros: "Not much at all really. Getting off the plane was nice."
Cons: "I didn't like being at the airport all day to be within 15 minutes of boarding and all of the sudden the flight was delayed 5+ hours. I could have gotten a hotel for the night again. Then after we get on the flight we have to sit in Seattle for an hour and a half because they had to fuel the plane up and switch crews. Not impressed."
Pros: "Efficient boarding and on time flight-crew was friendly and helpful."
Cons: "Being between two big men, I felt squished in the middle, so I don't know if the seats are smaller than other airlines, or just my situation, but sleeping was pretty much out of the question, as I could barely move."
Pros: "Every airline has the same basic situation to manage. When I fly Alaska, I always feel that everyone who works for Alaska works to do the best that they can and pass it on to their customers. I hope that they continue growing. They would be my first choice to fly everywhere."
Pros: "Great service from the crew on the flight."
Cons: "Seats didn't recline."
Cons: "For such a long flight at night we weren't offered a pillow to use or blanket and the seats are so small and cramped it was hard to get comfortable.one snack was offered the whole flight and the prices were too expensive to order."
Cons: "The longest, bumpiest flight I have ever been on. The fasten seatbelt slight was on all but about 20 minutes of a four-and-a-half-hour flight. I know the crew is not responsible for the weather, but it did not appear that the pilot was trying very hard to find smoother air."
Pros: "Service was fast"
Cons: "Better seats"
Cons: "Proper communication"
Cons: "Worse experience ever, flight delayed, lost connection, many hours in phone trying to fixed and anyway lost the flight, spent so many time at the airport with the front desk so disappointed"
Cons: "You guys didn't allow me to get in this plane and i missed my flight."
Cons: "When we booked this trip via Kayak, we thought that we were booking on Westjet. Westjet knew nothing about the flight when we tried to check in."
Cons: "Plane had to divert from Salt-Lake City due to a storm. My son 17 years old traveling alone once in Salt-Lake City should have been given priority for an overnight stay instead of sleeping on an airport bench! Dinner + Breakfast vouchers would also have been nice compared to the 15$ food voucher..."
Pros: "Our flight crew were great. Pilots were great too."
Cons: "I missed my connection due to weather in Minneapolis. Was diverted into Milwaukee, but nope we are diverted to Chicago, but wait no we go to Milwaukee. Deboard into a close gate area. Rest rooms were closed. Then once refueling is done get back on and make Minneapolis at 12:15 am. Connection missed"
Pros: "The on board food was amazing, nothing like I’d ever had on a plane before. I was also pleased with the choices for entertainment."
Cons: "The seat was not comfortable in economy. I could not sleep and there were no air vents. Every time I tried to rest my head on the seat in front of me the screen would turn on and get super hot. I wish there was a cover or something you could turn the screen completely off."
Pros: "The flight attendants were amazing. 12 people had a connecting flight and they brought a shuttle bus. You dont see that kind of service any more 10 stars for that"
Cons: "Super small plane."
Pros: "The overall experience on the flight was quite pleasing. The flight crew created a warm atmosphere on what was a very cold morning. Seating was not the most comfortable but the wasn't unbearable."
Cons: "Delta should have a better food menu for those early flights unless the motive is to encourage everyone to eat an organic and wholesome meal prior to boarding, something we all should be doing."
Cons: "No food on board and we were hungry"
Pros: "Friendly crew."
Cons: "Slow boarding."
Cons: "No charging outlet."
Pros: "I liked the touch screen displays in each headrest. Seats and leg room comfortable"
Cons: "Boarding was somewhat unorganized"
Pros: "Flight was on time/ early."
Cons: "Have hot water for coffee and outlets for phones"
Pros: "The kind staff"
Cons: "Dirty bathroom on flight from Toronto Ontario to Atlanta. Smelled like urine."
Pros: "got there on time, no delays. very smooth"
Pros: "Boarding was smooth, attendants were nice and informative, and everything was on time"
Cons: "A three hour delay on the first flight and a hour delay on the second..."
Pros: "Crew was friendly!"
Cons: "Plane wasn’t clean"
Pros: "The movie selection was good"
Cons: "Instead of a flight from Toronto to Atlanta.. it was a flight from Seattle to Atlanta, and I only had 45 mins to get to boarding because of the last minute flight changes."
Cons: "Customs massively backed up. Somewhat disorganized"
Cons: "Flight left 2 hours late. Did not get adequate cabin service. Put in the back in an awful seat."
Pros: "Airline and airport staff were great"
Cons: "There was no time to eat. Nothing other than snacks. The time allotted was *barely* sufficient to get from gate to gate. We were starving when we got to our destination."
Pros: "Delta always tries to do the very best. There were no issues with Delta."
Cons: "I did not like the seat assignment. It seems that when I have booked through Kayak, I get a very bad seat. In this case, it was all the way in the back - next to the toilet. The seats didn't recline, and there was no window - because we were right next to one of the engines. I will use Kayak to price compare on future flights, but I will not book through Kayak. Not sure if this is just a coincidence - but it only happens when booking here."
Pros: "On Time. Nothing else to say,"
Pros: "Friendly, leg room, on time."
Pros: "Ice weather and flight cancelled, but they waited until the last minute to cancel it."
Cons: "Ice weather and flight cancelled, but they waited until the last minute to cancel it."
Pros: "Flight went off pretty well. On time no complaints."
Cons: "Somewhere somehow you need to know that, although partners, Delta and West Jet do not share computer systems and that they are two completely different airlines. This affects ,sometimes, how luggage is handled especially when you land in another country and you have to manually transfer your own - and nobody tells you. You actually change airlines. Itinerary implies West Jet controls the entire thing. Not the case. Better job economic explaining what to With luggage and that, while itinerant implies 1 airline, they are only partners and should be treated separately."
Cons: "Flight delayed 2 hrs"
Pros: "The flight was pretty empty so my entire row was empty so very comfy and it was the new bigger plane so lots of carry on room too."
Cons: "Nothing...I have no complaints"
Pros: "The crew tried their best. The seats were average. The food ok."
Cons: "The entertainment is non-existent. Wifi wasn't even enabled. Four to five hours without ANY entertainment is totally unacceptable especially with teens and kids!!"
Pros: "Delta flew their way back into my heart this time around"
Cons: "have to wait 2 days for the flight, so i would say that's a pretty objective zero rating."
Pros: "Staff, Ease of boarding"
Cons: "Bring back in flight meals, please"
Pros: "The boarding was very organised and the crew very friendly. The snacks that they offer is great too"
Cons: "They had to change tires before we lelt in Toronto. And we spent more than one hour on the tarmac."
Cons: "Temperature was too cold"
Pros: "Was initially hoping to fly a US airline but will now look for Aeromexico first. Exceeded my expectations!"
Cons: "The layover in Mexico City was a bit long and the airport was not so great"
Pros: "The food"
Cons: "No entertainment"
Cons: "West Jet gave me a "fake" ticket delta would not let me board missed the flight I had to wake up at 3am to catch. This is after I finally made it to my hotel last night at 11:30 pm. This is completely unacceptable. NEVER AGAIN IN MY LIFE WILL I EVER FLY WITH THIS COMPANY!!!!"
Pros: "The crew was beyond friendly and courteous. Lots of leg room."
Cons: "I was an older plane, it was louder than our flight down to Atlanta. Nothing they could do about it, but a slight annoyance."
Pros: "The flight attendants were helpful, the flight was smooth."
Cons: "I was unable to check in online without a delta confirmation number and I had booked through west jet. The flight was delayed 40 min so I arrived later and I was removed from the flight. I got through security and customs with plenty of time and managed to get back on the flight. It was all around just annoying."
Pros: "Staffing was great!"
Cons: "The fact is that it is illegal to pack Sardines at compact as you are packing us on your aluminum cans."
Pros: "Crew smiling at the end of the flight."
Cons: "Cheap coffee (although it says Starbucks, I have tried better)."
Cons: "Please review the message I sent concerns Atlanta hartsfield."
Cons: "I thought I stated this before about the flight (5), Treatment (5) all the rest (5), but Atlanta Airport does not support disabled people using scooters to get from one plane to another. With more people using these, only a matter of time until a reporter males this an ISSUE. Meanwhile I will make every effort NOT to use ATLANTA HARTSFIELD. This includes my wife, also using a scooter."
Excellent flight. Slightly early arriving which was a bonus.
The seats are very comfortable and reclined a bit. The lighting on the red eye was pleasantly dim. The noise level was pretty good for sleeping. The staff were all quite nice. The vegetarian food was good with clever wooden utensils. Virgin Atlantic is miles above Spirit, Frontier, and that ilk. There is no nickel and diming, except for internet access.
No support Poor vet poor food Poor service inflight
KAYAK - please stop referring business to KIWI.com --- they do not take responsibility in actually booking your tickets, and do not provide any timely communication.
Virgin Atlantic should not be allowed to run codeshares without WestJet if neither company can provide check in or boarding passes - I was told I had to recheck my bags on a connecting flight which due to delays of the first one meant I had to abandon my bags at my first leg City to ensure I was able to run to get my flight as I only had 30 mins to make boarding. This means I landed in my destination without my luggage and am likely to never get it back. I will not fly on Virgin Atlantic again.
Despite some technical problems all the crew were really great and managed the issues really well. Thank you
Confusion on boarding - priority passengers should get priority. Service good, entertainment not so good and headphones poor. Meals average. Person behind kept kicking my seat so uncomfortable journey. Disembarking good and baggage fairly prompt.
Clean and comfortable short flight. Arrived on time.
Unfortunately the return flight was very busy and I assume due to COVID precautions and ventilation the aircraft was very cold. Economy is not that bad but when a full row feels very congested and almost like you’re sitting on top of each other. The flight was delayed at short notice and we were also additionally delayed upon landing when they could open the doors. The flight out there by virgin was great however the return flight not so much.
Pros: "The staff were helpful. The entertainment had good variety. Adjustable head rest was useful."
Cons: "The seat was a little lumpy. More leg room would always be appreciated."
Cons: "We are a little hard of hearing. It was hard to hear the attendant when giving directions over the intercom. The speech was garbled and directions spoken too fast. I am not referring to the safety speech. Recommend slowing down so that we have more time to process what was spoken."
Pros: "Crew was very attentive...food selection was excellent"
Pros: "Speedy boarding and good locker space"
Cons: "Lack of room in seat especially with seat in front reclined."
Pros: "Crew was generally nice and caring."
Cons: "Of course coach seat was not super comfortable. And speaker and screen at my seat did not work."
Pros: "Crew was nice"
Cons: "Screens have poor color quality Seat too small Legroom cut into by electronics box Row 45 next to bathroom and no windows"
Pros: "Crew was great!"
Cons: "The scone and roll were blah and dry - and so much bread in one meal!!! My seat charger didn’t work :("
Pros: "Loads of leg room compared with other flights (I'm 6' and my knees are usually embedded in the seat in front, but not this time!"
Cons: "USB socket on the entertainment on both flight out and return was broken."
Pros: "Food was very good"
Cons: "Economy passengers kept coming onto business class as our crew member was absent to often and didn’t police it"
Pros: "Really friendly crew, they go the extra mile to make passengers happy and comfortable."
Cons: "There was a boarding delay but flight still arrived in Hong Kong on time."
Pros: "Crew were friendly and courteous"
Cons: "Poor drink selection. Food mediocre. I felt like I was in the living room of the Beverley Hillbillies. Loud people, dressed like slobs. No manners"
Pros: "Crew was amazing and we got fed so often. The movie choices were good."
Cons: "I wish I could have ordered a drink (pay or otherwise) from the tv in front of me"
Cons: "Bed was incredibly uncomfortable in first class. It was like sleeping on the floor. People talking loudly in the bar late into the night, which made it even harder to sleep. Didn’t sleep a wink on this 10 hour flight."
Pros: "Fast boarding, not a crowded flight, ahead of schedule."
Cons: "Paid extra for my check in bag."
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"
Pros: "Legroom, lovely staff and all round good flight"
Pros: "Staff were excellent and very friendly, service was great, and the entertainment on board was very good."
Cons: "We were waiting in our seats for about an hour before take off due to a need to de-ice the plane due to snowy weather. I think everyone would have been more comfortable in the waiting area while this happened, or at least given the option to do so."
Pros: "Nice airline, great crew and service."
Cons: "Leg room and space was great but the seats could use some more cushion."
Cons: "Seats in economy are way to small and very uncomfortable if tall. Too close to the seats in front of you. I was miserable all the way to London."
Pros: "The entertainment selection was good, though I didn't need to see the blurb about having vloggers available before every movie. One of the very few airlines to use boarding by rows, which speeds up the boarding process."
Cons: "The legroom is very cramped, pretty difficult to eat your meal with the seat in front reclined. The crew were not very attentive: they completely missed me while I was waving the rubbish on their collection rounds. In the end I had to dump it myself in the toilet bins. The PA system is too loud compared to the rest of the entertainment, had to remove the headphones for each one of them."
Pros: "The crew was friendly and professional, the food was good and offered frequently due to the long flight time (10.5 hours). The plane was comfortable even though nearly full. Overall, it was a good experience and I would definitely fly with Virgin Atlantic again."
Pros: "Reasonably comfortable for a long jet ride. Helpful and considerate flight attendants."
Cons: "The strange windows that kept it looking like night out until 30 minutes before we landed. I prefer the natural light to help readjust my time zones."
Pros: "My first time flying to Europe! I love the service from the attendants but my seat mate made it uncomfortable to seat in my seat. Overall great experience"
Cons: "Food was awful. Sorry. Breakfast was unrecognizable. Landed hungry."
Pros: "Quantity of food was less for the dinner time..but overall experience was good.."
Pros: "Australian airports are wonderful."
Pros: "Nothing - except the toilets with tabs for lifting the seat & adjustable headrest. They forgot to load our toiletries overnight pack too!"
Cons: "The 787 has vastly inadequate Economy toilets - ONLY 4! For 200 passengers. Inadequate lighting for,boarding, unable to activate reading lights until AFTER TAKEOFF = groping in semi darkness, BAD! No window blinds = woken up by blazing sun in middle of 11 hr night flight, even with sleeping pills my sleep was wrecked, even with eyemask. Passengers penned in on narrow aisles by trolleys, unable to walk around plane & risk of DVT. Passengers disempowered by restricted space, lighting, mobility. I want more control over my personal mobility &, lighting. Horrible headsets (bring my own). This flight departed 2.5 HRs LATE from JHB & the crew & cavin service was SLOW. NO requested second cup of tea brought - I waited 20 mins & climbed over trolleys to get another one, even though it was requested of cabin crew. Do they just ignore us? Or forget?"
Pros: "The service, the service. My wife got a cheese and fruit platter after dinner. Crew went out of their way to make us feel special and welcomed. Excellent service."
Cons: "Nothing to complain about."
Pros: "The staff, the food , everything was good. We were in premium economy and were impressed ."
Cons: "I have trouble walking and the golf buggy never arrived to take me and another lady to the airoplane so we had to walk."
Pros: "The whole flight was great quick boarding, lots of leg room, good entertainment, a USB charge port, good lighting, and the crew was very nice and helpful. I enjoyed the flight and would like to fly Virgin Atlantic more. Finally, you are the 3rd best flight, I have ever take, and the 2nd best airline I've been on. Flew Business Class on Swiss Air once to Geneva (#1) and all the flights I have had with Porter Air are comparable to your airline, but the free cookies and beverages at Porter's terminal in Toronto wonderful."
Cons: "A couple things went wrong on this trip, my checked luggage got misplaced for a day, and a nice women in baggage claim told me what was happening and a nice man handled my claim and my bag has now been returned to me. The bigger thing is my flight bas delayed taking off by 3 hours. Let me start that I would rather have a part replaced on the runway then not, safety is paramount. The fact is my flight took off 3 hours late from London (VS11), and got to my destination (BOS) 2.5 hours late. Kudos to the flight crew for getting me to my destination faster by gaining a little time. Plus, since BOSTON was my final destination it was all fine this time. But if I had had to get home to the elder person I take care of or my teenager it would been a problem. Again, I'm annoyed, but I do understand the reasons and they are valid and preferred. I have heard that airlines to keep their flight rating high, wait for planes to leave the gate on time and then do repairs on the tarmac. If this is still a SOP for airlines you should change the way the statistics are collected and figure out a way of not perpetuating this type of disincentive. This is just hypothesis on my part, and my whole trip had little negatives."
Pros: "Virgin Atlantic had a very attractive decor.Food was great& staff as well. Polite and professional ."
Cons: "The seat I had was a bit snug leg wise and recline wise. Could not get comfortable at all."
Cons: "Never seen an international flight charges checked in luggage $130 US dollars a piece"
Pros: "Professional Cabin Crew Excellent "vera" entertainment"
Cons: "Chaotic boarding procedure in Cancun airport, although I accept that this is more of an issue with airport layout Removal of some of the "Virgin Atlantic" benefits such as free sports equipment will make me rethink my carrier of choice from next year. The 747 fleet is starting to feel old - when are the dream liners coming?"
Pros: "Dont whish to comment unless a human being can contact me and help me get the $200 travel voucher I was promised. It was so stressful its the least that can be done"
Pros: "Entertainment system is great"
Cons: "Still very cramped. Cannot lower tray if you have anything in pocket (like an iPad or magazine) Should board rear section first."
Pros: "Everything except the seating - far too cramped now"
Cons: "Seating! Seats getting ridiculously tight"
Pros: "Great service, tons of food"
Cons: "This VS007 flight is in an old Airbus that needs a major overhaul, especially compared to newer planes in their fleet. The screens are hardly visible, the movie selection more limited, the seats old, and no electrical outlets for a 11hr flight is just not acceptable these days!"
