Pros: "Service was awesome, 100% recommended"
Pros: "The crew was good, and they tried to make up for the delay with a gift certificate"
Cons: "More than three hours of delay because there was no crew assigned to that flight"
Cons: "Everything could have been better. Flight delayed 3 hours due to JetBlue schedule mismanagement. No consideration for elderly when we had to change gates across airport. Poor communication on flight updates. And then as a perk to make up for delays, tried to sell us a credit card. Just Awful."

Pros: "The rescheduling of my flight via a phone call"
Cons: "The delay of course"
Cons: "My first flight was delayed an hour due to pilot error (we left the gate on time, but sat on the tarmac for an hour). This caused me to miss my connecting flight, which stranded me at JFK because they only had one flight per day to my destination. JetBlue's customer service told me I could not reach my destination until the next day, which was unacceptable (I had a morning interview). In fact, the only thing they said they could do was *PARTIALLY* refund my ticket, even though they stranded me in a completely different city. They also said I would "be able to" book a new flight with a different carrier, which cost roughly $400, using my own money. In the end, I spent about an hour talking with customer service until they were "nice enough" to do a partial refund with an additional credit equaling the remainder of my $400 ticket to fly with them in the future. It was still a very poor interaction with customer service."
Cons: "2 hours late!"
Cons: "The cabin crew was a little lacking and the captain did not mentioned that we had landed almost a full hour later than scheduled."
Pros: "Pilot’s smooth take off and landing."
Cons: "The weather haha."
Pros: "It was a great trip for the cost."
Cons: "Nothing."
Pros: "I liked that the pilot was able to make up some time because our flight was delayed over one hour in Chicago."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Being delayed from 6am to 1:30pm"
Pros: "Flight was delayed 30 minutes at takeoff but landed when it was scheduled, so it was fine. Flight attendants didn’t make you stay in your seat, so you could use the lavatory. A fine, uneventful flight. Free WiFi. Snacks. Drinks. Fairly comfortable seats with decent legroom."
Cons: "Wish the seats in front of the emergency exit reclined."
Pros: "The crew was unfailing cheerful and helpful. The seats are comfortable and there’s a little more space than some airlines. The fight and particularly the landing was very smooth. Great experience!"
Pros: "I appreciate that they let families with strollers board after Group A, there seems to be more space than the major carriers, and the snacks are good!"
Cons: "My Satellite XM radio didn’t seem to be working."

Pros: "More leg room Affordable prices Snacks dunkin donut coffee Pleasant flight attendant Punctuality"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "This flight is 3 + hours delayed, and I think it’s because Jet Blue didn’t have a full flight for the 8:30 am departure, this is unacceptable and I need to be compensated for my time Winston White"
Cons: "This flight is 3 + hours delayed, and I think it’s because Jet Blue didn’t have a full flight for the 8:30 am departure, this is unacceptable and I need to be compensated for my time Winston White"
Pros: "The crew talked a big game. They were ready for anything, including loss of cabin pressure, paid snacks, and even a water landing."
Cons: "No water landing! I was excited to float around on a hot day, go down an awesome slide, and catch some sick waves, but come on people, we never even got a chance!"
Cons: "could not make it in time. Then we got on plane and pilot said it was an electrical problem on the flight but the generators were now up and at em again. Very hair raising ride for me - got in at 2:30 am with another hour to drive home - and I lost a LOT of confidence which I have always had in Jet Blue. I hope this is not the future we can expect with you"
Pros: "How easy it was to board"
Cons: "When I asked if there was any chance I could sit with my family they were nice enough to change are setting. Just a thought if the setting is random when you check in for your flight somewhere the computer should at least work with putting the last names together just a thought."
Pros: "Entertainment, food, crew, and cleanliness were 100000% on point. Loved it."
Cons: "Turbulence and the flight was longer than necessary because we had to go around bad weather. Not the fault of JetBlue!"
Pros: "Cheerful, efficient service. No hidden costs. Free gate to gate WiFi. Comfortable seats. Never flown them before and they are now at the top of my list."
Cons: "Nothing yet."
Pros: "Adequate leg room and ability to take a carry on we if your extra charge"
Pros: "Easy boarding, friendly staff, nice choice of snacks and beverages. The JetBlue app is very useful."
Cons: "My in flight entertainment never worked. All I had available to look at was the JetBlue commercial channel showing me all of the entertainment I wasn’t able to watch. Not even the live view map worked. One of the attendants said something about resetting the system but I didn’t notice a change. I said something to one of the attendants a little later and she tried doing a reset again, but still no success. I could see other screens working fine and people were watching various programs while I just stared at a static map of the continental United States. Oh well, at least I was able to stream Netflix because of the free inflight WiFi."
Pros: "Seats were pretty comfortable with decent legroom."
Cons: "Plane was freezing cold, but a blanket had to be purchased."
Cons: "The flight was delayed and we would have missed our connection in NYC. So we had to cancel the trip."
Cons: "my flight was delayed for 2 hours and there was no compensation for it"
Pros: "The comfort of the seats are amazing. I was able to sleep through almost all of the flight."
Cons: "When I scanned my boarding pass the Jetblue staff member told me my carry on was too big and had to be checked. This was puzzling to me because I travel often and do not have a problem with that bag. As I was sitting on the plane I saw everyone's bag's were bigger especially the man next to me. His was significantly larger and he had a large duffle bag between his legs causing him to manspread into my area. and yet i was told "make sure your purse is under the seat" seriously?! What about his giant duffle bag and huge carry on roller?!"
Pros: "Captain and crew"
Cons: "Luggage handling"
Cons: "Movies didn't work and we were one hour delayed on the runway."
Pros: "The only good things about this flight were: - The crew at the gate were very friendly and attentive - We arrived safely without incident"
Cons: "We were delayed 2 times before boarding. We were delayed 1 more time while on the plane. The pilot told us there was equipment trouble that had been fixed, but there was paperwork to fill out and it would only be a few minutes...and then radio silence for 30 minutes before pulling back. The flight attendants rushed through the pre-flight announcents and I could only understand about 60% of it due to speed, volume and accent. Despite asking me for my drink order, it never came...and I only heard a few soda cans pop open at all. Did they just decide not to serve us? She even gave me a napkin for it. Luckily when they put the snack basket in front of me, there was a tiny bottle of water, which I grabbed...little did I know, that was all I would get. The flight attendants were just tapping in the back of the plane the rest of the flight. They didn’t even bother collecting garbage until we were on final approach. They also never did the normal checks before landing."
Cons: "flight was delayed 2 hours :("
Pros: "Crew was happy and friendly"
Cons: "Can’t think of anything"
Pros: "They refund me the money"
Cons: "I almost lost my international connection, had to pay double to get my destination on time"
Pros: "Ez check in with kiosk"
Cons: "I would like to see an organic food option, even with a fee if necessary. Recommendation, fruit like banana or apple. Certified organic."
Pros: "Boarding system efficient. Lots of leg room. Choice of snacks. Good service."
Pros: "Entertainment on board"
Cons: "My flights was delayed"
Pros: "Extra leg room"
Cons: "On both legs of our vacation, going and coming we experienced long delays , 2 hours Boston.to Vhicago and 3 hours Chicago to Boston"

Pros: "So rude crew"
Pros: "Friendly crew, great access to a variety refreshments, robust entertainment library."
Cons: "No suggestions."
Pros: "Due to business I travel allot so I deal with allot of airlines. This is by far the best airlines I have used. Excellent crew and airport staff. I don’t think words can express how satisfied I am with this airlines and airport. The nicest people and great service. Clean and modern aircraft. Going to try flying only with KLM from now on."
Cons: "Nothing"
Cons: "When its rain we shouldn’t walk to the air plain"
Cons: "I was seated next to the restroom, which is not a pleasant experience for an international flight."
Cons: "The flight was a bit delayed, but the airline handled it incredibly well. I was put up in a great hotel with good free food and caught another flight the next morning."
Pros: "Service is awesome. Food is great."
Cons: "People with short connection are affected by the 15 to 25 minutes delay."
Cons: "We were allowed to choose our seats from SFO to Amsterdam but not for the return flight. I like to be able to choise my seats when I book the flight. Choosing seats 24 hours before is not convenient when traveling for the return trip."
Pros: "Crew was nice and friendly"
Cons: "Airplane so uncomfortable. Food horrible. Not even available for one of us what we ask for on what was offered. Bad taste and not what can be on a that length of time flight."
Cons: "The website I booked on and the Delta phone line on the printed ticket said that I had baggage when it turns out that I did not according to the check in staff and they made me pay."
Pros: "The flight was smooth, the service was friendly, and the food with plentiful."
Cons: "Too much activity in the cabin during the flight."
Cons: "lost baggage"

Cons: "Announcements from the cockpit were hard to hear. Food has been better in past."
Pros: "Excellent service. A meal , drink and a coffee included which we were not expecting."
Pros: "I bought the Airport tickets for my Russian friend. However customs would not allow her to board the plane unfortunately. That's not Kayaks fault. I would definitely book with Kayak again. Many thanks."
Pros: "Good flight, very attentive crew."
Pros: "Food and staff behaviour"
Cons: "Entertainment"
Pros: "The aircraft felt clean and quite spacious (decent legroom). Cabin crew was friendly and everything went as expected. Bonus points for the Beemster cheese sandwich (I was totally disappointed when they served the food, but more than pleasantly surprised by the quality of the cheese - I even bought some afterwards, from the Albert Heijn just outside the security area)."
Cons: "Very odd queue separation at boarding. Passengers were divided in 5 lanes, depending on their seating area withing the plane (for a more efficient boarding, I presume) but, by the time we all got to the actual aircraft, we formed another queue in the boarding bridge so it didn't feel like any time was saved or anything."
Pros: "Very friendly crew going out of way to assist in making trip comfortable"
Cons: "Had travelled KLM to Amsterdam on my first flight 27 years ago and the aircrafts are stuck in that age! Lousy seats, poor quality bathrooms, lousy screens, prefer not to fly them"
Pros: "Really friendly staff. Great service"
Pros: "On both of my flights to New York City, I was amazed at how friendly and helpful the flight attendants were to the passengers. On my short flight from Basel to Amsterdam, a young French speaking girl was concerned about how to manage getting to her next gate. The flight attendants talked to her and arranged for someone to take her there. On my longer flight from Amsterdam to New York City, there was a customer who was in distress about missing a previous flight and not making it to her connecting flight in New York. One of the flight attendants reassured her until she stopped crying and calmed down. That same flight attendant was always so positive and cheerful in all she did. The rest of the crew was top notch. This was my best experience flying in such a long time. Well done, KLM crews of flights 1984 and 0645 on July 10!"
Pros: "Flight crew was fine. Food was good."
Cons: "Checking in was extensive for unaccompanied minor. But gate crew was very unnattentuve and though we showed up as first in line, they did not focus, and kept saying to wait. Ultimately our son was last person on the plane."
Pros: "The flight was great."
Pros: "The supplied pack of toothpaste/toothbrush"
Pros: "Flight was on time and quick and comfortable"
Pros: "Cabin crew very pleasant"
Cons: "Lost our bags, little sympathy from staff"
Pros: "Crew was very helpful.food"
Cons: "Food was not upto the mark."
Cons: "Two hours delay in the start."
Pros: "Equally friendly crew and experience. It was complimented by the time we got to spend in the fantastic KLM lounge while we waited for the flight."
Cons: "Nothing!"
Cons: "The leg room on the long flight was less than I would have wished and it was particularly bad when the person in front put their seat back. this was a day time flight and it would have been good to have a bit more room to use a laptop."
Pros: "Everything - Checkin, crew, food, entertainment"
Cons: "Nothing"
Cons: "magazines very dog eared and some badly torn"
Cons: "One of the senior stewardesses we're very rude. Whether it's her personal opinion or KLM's policy, it's unreasonable to think that a 3 years old child could or should hold her pipi over 20 minutes, while they slowly and inefficiently trying to give out food. Several parents were there with the request to let us through to the toilet with small children and she smiled in our face and said "no, we will finish first and than you can go". She might be not fit for the job anymore, but KLM can't afford this kind of treatment."
Pros: "The flight was delayed by 40 minutes initially then a further 20 making it an hour late. Sitting at the gate there was then suddenly a last call to board the flight and a mad rush for everyone to get on. I appreciate that delays happen but the lack of communication ragardinh altered boarding times didn't make the situation any easier"
Cons: "As above"
Pros: "Free wee cake."
Cons: "Nothing in particular."
Pros: "Food and staff were great"
Cons: "Entertainment system old and not as many options as other KLM flight. No power on aircraft for charging"
Pros: "Flight attendants were friendly, but they only had limited resources to work with."
Cons: "Worst aircraft I have been on in years. No wifi or entertainment, no power outlets, only bad wine/beer for a 3+ hour flight is mediocre at best..."
Pros: "delayed"
Pros: "Food and drink service"
Cons: "Boarding pass facility"
Pros: "Flight unpleasant. Ground staff in Marseiile great but gate crew didn't control carry on baggage and many of us could not use overhead bins because of passengers who stowed more than one and often oversized suitcases above, so we and many others had to place carry on suitcases under seat. Attendant on plane totally unhelpful and could have rearranged a few bags to make room but preferred to stay in back of plane and talk. To be fair, rest of flight was pleasant although late due in part to boarding issues."
Cons: "Carry on baggage issues and storage on plane. One aloof and unhelpful member of flight crew."
Cons: "I slept didn't have snack offered and no entertainment"
Cons: "sardines!"
Cons: "Because of slow boarding process flight was delayed by 15 minutes. I had short connection in Amsterdam."
Pros: "Quick and efficient flight. Crew very organized. Great language skills"
Pros: "...The transfer at JFK was terrible"
Cons: "Taking off late caused me stress because I had transferring flight within less than two hours in transit originally. So we arrived later about 50 minutes so I had to manage my situation and find my next gate and be on time. And an other thing that I disliked was that I was allowed to have only one baggage which was very unusual for international flight between two countenances. And the crew was not polite enough so she made fun of my Cary-on. In short, I expected more from KLM which is famous for them being "Royal" but not acting as one of them."
Cons: "Terrible moslem food, too much lentil with tasteless chicken"
Pros: "Food was relatively good"
Cons: "We had ourtrip from San Francisco to Amsterdam which is one of the longest flights ever, andthe entertainment system wasnt working, we kept on telling them several times but nothing happened and at the end they wereeven avoiding us. By the end of the trip when we were approaching Ams, a hostess came and she gave us a $25 dollar discountvoucher to be used in our next trip, this is totally not acceptable!"
Pros: "attentive on the plane"
Cons: "the checking in took very long not enough staff for the amount of people."

Flight was missed and now we have to catch one the next day

Pros: "Not a lot."
Cons: "Our flight got delayed so American Airlines Auto switched us to a flight leaving a day later with a 17 hour layover. When I called to get it fixed I waited on hold for 30 minutes before I got through. Once we got on original flight they gave away seats we paid extra for and gave us no refund."
Pros: "My bag was lost!"
Cons: "To have my bag delivered"
Cons: "Things were very scratched"
Pros: "Finnair cabin/seats, clean, quiet and comfortable airport in Helsinki"
Cons: "Not only the first flight got delayed for over 2 hours. I had to re-book the second - connecting - flight because of that. Now it made my layover instead of 1 h 45 m - 5 hours! Then the second flight got delayed!! So instead of 5 hours layover it was over 7 hours!!! Very inconvenient and upsetting experience. The only reason I booked these particular flights is because they were advertized as "the shortest trip" time on your website..."
Pros: "The flight was not crowded and that was a nice surprise for a transatlantic flight. Each passenger was offered a personal bottle of water upon boarding, cabin crew was very nice and professional. The flight was on time and we arrived at the airport of destination even ahead of time!"
Cons: "There was no soap in the toilet..."
Cons: "Good airline teamed up with crappy American brings them down. Don't waste money!!"
Cons: "Unwashed pillow and blankets, stains on the pillow"
Pros: "I liked that they said ...you need to wait for 5 hours for the decision to get you or not on the next flight...and how much it will cost you extra now after having a great night spent at the terminal."
Cons: "All that matters for Finnair is that the flight took off on time... If you make it or not....if you know where to go...why to worry! It is your problem now! We will charge you up to "current" price now!"
Pros: "The choice of entertainment is huge"
Cons: "The fisical conditions are terrible. Seats so narrow and rows are so close, that you practically pooched into your neighbors, those that behind don't let you to recline your seat as then your seat is in their face. It looks like American Airlines hopes to exchange your reality with virtuality, but our bodies that we are for some reason taking with us on that itinerary - suffer."
Pros: "Food."
Cons: "No audio."
Pros: "Check in staff at counter in Chicago was very friendly and saved my trip by safely keeping a critical document that I accidentally left behind on the counter. Really friendly and attentive flight attendants on the flight."
Cons: "Aging seats and interior of plane were showing badly and it downgraded the ambience of the flight."
Pros: "Friendly service, clean airplane, great food."
Cons: "No leg room in economy. Worse then United and American Airlines!"
Pros: "I flew in economy. 9+ hours from ORD to HEL. The seat was average size. We were provided with a pillow, blanket and headphones. I did not use the in-flight entertainment, which was on an LCD screen. It was warm, so i didn't use the blanket. I also brought a neck-pillow, which is vital on overnight flights. They served a full dinner shortly after takeoff: I had meat lasagna which wasn't that bad, along with corn, a roll w/ butter, two saltine crackers with decent cheese and a chocolate pudding. Upon waking, I ate the breakfast, which was scrambled eggs and two sausages and a roasted tomato, a roll with butter, fruit cup and orange juice, coffee on the side. All pretty good, it was nice to have a meal before deplaning in Helsinki and waiting to get through passport control. Attendants on this flight were quite friendly. Check-in was run very efficiently. No problems with luggage. All in all, a real bargain price, and I got more than I bargained for."
Cons: "As for the downside, I had no significant disappointments on the long leg of my flight on Finnair. I hope my return flights will be just as good."
Pros: "The plane was good, the flight time was nice, just 9.5 hours."
Cons: "The boarding was kind of chaotic, but the crew was kind. The plane seemed comfortable but the seats sit too far back, so when the person in front of me sat his seat back, his head was almost in my lap. It made it hard for me to move or read or do anything. The food was super bland and the drink options were pretty limited. The entertainment selection was much more limited than most flights."
Pros: "Great customer service; food was good; excellent movie selection"
Cons: "For some reason about half of the passengers had to have their boarding passes reissued so departure was delayed- thus arrival was delayed & some passengers missed connections- I had plenty of time so it wasn't an issue for me"
Pros: "They lost my bag."
Cons: "They lost my bag."
Pros: "The crew was friendly. We were delayed, but I think that's because we were waiting on travelers with delayed connecting flights."
Cons: "The food was very heavy, heavier than airplane food usually is. The touchscreen TVs were not very responsive."
Pros: "Finnair was every bit as good as the best European airlines I've used in the past. Compares favorably to British, KLM, Swissair, etc. Service was top notch, good food, entertainment, comfort, airport lounge, etc."
Pros: "We didn't make it to Helsinki so I can't say anything good!"
Cons: "Justfly.com screwed up on our reservation and failed to properly ticket our lap child. This caused us to not make the flight! Justfly.com hasn't done anything to rectify this issue!"
Cons: "You have canceled my flight and you have just sent me an email."
Cons: "Crew wasn't attentive. Seats were small."
Pros: "Great service and great food."
Cons: "The long hours"
Pros: "We had a very reasonable fare that included two meals a glass of wine and movies. We weren't expecting any thing more than a plane ride. Thank you FinnAir."
Pros: "The crew was friendly."
Cons: "The seats are cramped and the most uncomfortable I've ever sat on. An 8 hour red eye flight made it unbearable. The food is pretty terrible too. This is the last and only trip I'll be flying Finnair."
Pros: "Perhaps that we eventually got there and that the plane did not crash"
Cons: "Everything"
Pros: "Flight was ok"
Cons: "I didn't like the fact that it was delayed, with weather being in good condition"
Pros: "Schedule is on time."
Cons: "Food was not much excting and seat distance was rather short, making uncomfortable."
Pros: "Friendly and competent crew, on-time performance, clean and pleasantly appointed cabin, non-stop service always beats transfers!"
Cons: "Cramped seating (A330) for such a long (8.5 hrs) flight. U.S. catered food was mediocre at best."
Cons: "It is ridiculous that they would not allow you to select a seat for free at check-in. There were many unoccupied seats, but some families with children were seated separately, so there was a lot of seat changing before the take off."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Flight left 4 hours late due to mechanical problems with a very , very old plane. I paid extra for an exit seat that (bc the plane was so old) had cold air seeping in that even with 4 blankets on, a sweater, my jacket I was frozen the whole flight and caught a terrible cold that I have now had for a week."
Pros: "planned time of departure Fare potential for getting 5 seats so I could get a good nights sleep"
Cons: "Plane left 3 1/2 hours late due to a mysterious mechanical problem that caused them to taxi it away from the gate more than once. Relatively little communication from American whose flight it was. Scheduled departure 10 PM. Actual departure 1:30 AM I reserved a center aisle seat in a row that was completely empty a day or two before departure, hoping to get the whole row. Didn't work out. Just before we closed the doors a couple arrived at the row and took up three of the seats. Darn it. But I still got a good nights sleep. Wish there was an option to check N/A on several of the options above. I didn't speak to a crew member. I didn't eat or drink anything. I never turned on the entertainment system."
Cons: "There was a very poor selection of movies to watch:( Last tim ei flew AA, and there was an absolutely huge choice . . . Would love to see that improved . . I think you have to cater for all tastes . . . and that definitely was not the case on my flight"
Pros: "It was Iberia airline"
Cons: "Put in call light three times without response. They just shut it off!!"
Pros: "Nice one"
Cons: "Nice one"
Pros: "Everything else"
Cons: "Both the British Airways attendant who check me in in Chicago, and the British Airways attendant who checked me in in London, were not paying attention to my final destination and did not mark my luggage for my final destination."
Pros: "Seats were comfortable with plenty of room."
Cons: "Plane was broken and we had to wait 3 1/2 hours to get a new plane. Crew kept awkwardly mentioning during every announcement that the delay wasn't their fault... My husband's entertainment screen was broken and flickering so much that all shows/films were completely unwatchable. My screen began flickering 1/2way through a film."
Pros: "Checking was a breeze and there were no hassles getting through security. The flight was great and they even had a vegetarian option for my meal! I would highly recommend to anyone for International flight!"
Pros: "Good service"
Cons: "Ancient aircraft."
Pros: "I did not like anything about this trip."
Cons: "Our flight from Chicago to Paris was managed by Finnair, but flown through American Airlines. This was the second disappointing flight on American Airlines. Our first flight was repeatedly delayed over three hours and then canceled. Everyone had to take a new flight the next day on the same plane which was scheduled to be fixed that morning prior to departure. We boarded the plane 45 minutes late and then were informed that the part needed to fix the plan had just cleared customs. After another hour of waiting on the plane, we taxied to the runway and the returned to the gate because another part needed to be fixed on the plane. We waited another hour and a half on the plane before finally taking off. Upon our arrival at Chicago O'Hare, we waited on the tarmac for 30 minutes before the ground crew parked our plane. Which brings me to this flight from Chicago O'Hare to Charles de Gaulle in Paris. Our flight was delayed for maintenance repeatedly for 2 hours and then a new plane had to be brought over. By the time we boarded we were almost four hours behind schedule due to a logbook problem once we boarded the new plane. The plane itself was small - the size of a domestic flight - and VERY cramped. On both of the flights we had no TVs in the headrest. This is something that I have always had in economy class on international flights. It was by far the most uncomfortable flight I have ever been on. Because of the delay, we had to reschedule one of our two connecting flights. I was assured that our bags would still arrive at our final destination. When we finally reached our final destination, we found out that our bags had been lost along the way - most likely because of the flight being rescheduled."
Pros: "Staff was kind, flight itself generally went smoothly. The boarding process itself went fairly quickly, and I was able to disembark within minutes of landing."
Cons: "This Finnair flight was operated by American Airlines, but American Airlines did not notify me about the change in flight number until I called in a panic the night before because I was unable to check in. The plane was nearly 2 hours late departing from Chicago O'Hare with no explanation given. 1hr and 45 minutes is a long time to sit without going anywhere. Food was incredibly uninspiring and the staff was kind, but generally seemed distracted. I asked for a beverage at one point, but the flight attendant was too busy trying to get the passenger next to me who was passed out on sleeping pills to put the window shade down to give it to me. American Airlines is one of the only carriers left that has not upgraded to individual entertainment units for transatlantic flights and so the entertainment was like something straight out of Mad Men. Probably my worst flying experience to date."
Pros: "The crew was very nice and helpful and the flight went well and was ontime, in fact early."
Cons: "I thought that I got one bag checked for free and another one would cost $50. But when I got my boarding pass I was charged $100."
Pros: "The staff were incredible and helpful. The entertainment made the flight go much faster. The airplane was comfortable and clean. Great flight"
Cons: "The passengers next to me smelled severely of body odor. I know that this isn't something the flight crew can do anything about but it made my flight really uncomfortable. Thankfully the seat next to me opened. So I loved a seat away- but even that couldn't mask the smell!"
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."
Pros: "I loved my experience with Finnair. Courteous staff, clean and comfortable, very accommodating. The food was EXCELLENT. I would pick my next trip based on where Finnair flies (that is how pleased I was)!"
Cons: "The fact that I never used this airline in the past!"
Pros: "We didn't die"
Cons: "Poor air quality No leg room No room in the plane to move about or stretch Terrible food"
Pros: "Sat next to tall, broad shouldered fellow but otherwise fine seats. Food was ok but too cool."
Pros: "Crew was nice and helpful. Food was good."
Cons: "Tiny seats and no leg room!!!! I am not a big person."
Cons: "It is over a month now and I am still waiting to get my American Airlines miles awarded to my account. The trip was booked through FinnAir but operated by American Airlines. They are both members of the same alliance. The airline miles number was confirmed with American Airlines upon check-in. But now, American Airlines wants proof of my ticket receipt and boarding pass. I have my ticket receipt but who keeps their paper boarding pass these days? Hope my photo of the gate details suffices for my boarding pass."
Cons: "When I booked the flight there wasn't an option for a special meal and I have dietary restrictions so I was unable to eat any of the food on the plane."

Coming through chicago is a nightmare. Customs are rude, everyone shouting, disorganized lines and horrible signage. Ticketing was horrible, rude agents, rude TSA, etc, etc.

Did not like anything about the flight Did not get economy plus that I paid for

Pros: "Calm, friendly and professional crew, good food and spotlessly clean aircraft."
Cons: "Disorganized boarding. People were jumping the line saying they were in the zone that was called when they couldn’t have been. I was there early (one of the 1st) but because I’m polite and only approached the gate when my zone was called, ended up at the back. More monitoring of this would help because I saw other people bothered by this."
Cons: "my first flight overseas. friendly staff. movies ..headphones..pillow and blankets included. 2 beverages included with meal. only downside was paying for checked bag. looks like that is included on the return flight so that won't be and issue on the way home. no issues with carryons."
Pros: "Smiling crew, clean airplane, tasty healthy food. I had all I needed to be comfortable."
Cons: "I can’t think of anything to improve on."
Cons: "Seat was terribl, space tiny, no legroom no air movement, hot the entire trip,"
Pros: "The crew was very nice , and very comfortable seats ."
Cons: "Everything was great"
Cons: "The back of the plane was significantly warmer than the rest of the plane. Very little leg room."
Pros: "Boarding was easy, flight was smooth and on time."
Cons: "Seats were snug, granted we had the less expensive tickets."
Cons: "."
Cons: "More room. Not losing our luggage at the end."
Pros: "The quality of the seat, cleanliness of the aircraft (with the exception of the restrooms). Ground and lounge crew excellent and knowledgeable. Boarding was swift but confusing."
Cons: "In cabin crew was substandard. Very slow in the food service, often times rude and lound when addressing passengers, and failed to clean the restrooms in flight, which left them in dire state and smelled. An unusually unpleasant set of attendants, and sadly not one of them made up for the lack of professionalism the others showed. No priority boarding, they proceeded with boarding the first half of passengers all at once so rather confusing."
Pros: "service was great flight was on time luggage came on time"
Pros: "The in-flight entertainment options were good."
Cons: "My seat was broken and when I alerted the attendant, in a rude tone, she replied “what do you want me to do?” Not exactly the friendliest experience. It was only compounded by the fact that when we were landing, another attendant insisted I put seat completely upright, and when I told her it had been broken the entire trip, she began forcefully shoving my seat. Not awesome."
Cons: "Flight to Stockholm was cancelled. SAS Provided no informaton on the steps for re-scheduling my flight. I had to call the SAS headquarters in Stockholm before receiving any guidance on what to do next. All service attendants ditched the ticketing desk leaving one poor employee to answer questions for over 70 disgruntled passengers. Very very very poor communication. Luckily I was finally able to book a flight using another airline after waiting on hold for 20 minutes with the regional customer service provider."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Cramped in a tiny seat behind someone well over 6’5 who kept slamming his seat back to get more room. We were later diverted for a person on the flight who had health issues all the way back to Canada when we were practically over Ireland. We flew back I believe an hour and a half back only to not have proper fuel equipment which took fueling forever and caused our crew to go past their duty day which made use get diverted again to Iceland for a new crew and even more gas. We were held on the plane for a total of 8 additional hours! We were never allowed to get off the plane, we were given very minimal food and drink the additional 8 hours, and when my girlfriend asked what was going on your information person in Copenhagen said they had no idea what was going on with my Flight and had no idea where it was."
Pros: "One crew member was particularly nice and personable."
Cons: "We waited an hour in the plane before take-off and after boarding, during which time the crew deliberately filled the cabin icecold air thick with the highly toxic fumes from the deicing. I got a headache from it. Throughout the process the entertainment units were disabled, when they could have helped distract passengers from this ordeal. The food was disgusting. When the Danish government has repatedly bailed out SAS, it would make a lot more sense for everyone involved to have higher quality Danish products on board for the meals, especially for such things as dairy products."
Pros: "All went well !! On time friendly staff ."
Pros: "food was delicious and I liked that they give everyone a full bottle of water at the start of the flight; plane was new and updated"
Cons: "Boarding was awkward and just a giant mass of people funneling in; tv show options only had 1-3 episodes and not entire seasons"
Pros: "Good boarding, crew nice and professional, lots of entertainment choices, plenty of bathrooms. Overall a very good flight."
Cons: "No opportunity to rest on flight back home and wine a bit expensive for a European flight."
Pros: "The flight attendants were very nice and on the cross continent part of our flight we had dinner and breakfast served. Lots of leg room."
Pros: "I had read several horrible reviews after I booked my flight but I was pleasantly surprised. The check in and boarding were smooth and had no issues. The seats, though not overly large, we're comfortable and not tight. The food was good and service was fast and efficient. Overall a good experience."
Pros: "I loved that there were a lot of different movies, TV shows, games, music, and more to choose from- all for free! Then there was a dinner- not bad at all-, a snack later on, and breakfast too, all included. Headphones if you needed them ( lifesaver there as I had temporary misplaced mine), a blanket, and a pillow. The crew was really polite, and there was never more than one person in line for the bathroom."
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "They gave us blankets and pillows. Each seat had its own entertainment system but it only worked with the earbuds given out by the crew and the controls were cumbersome to use."
Cons: "The plane was hot and stuffy the entire trip. There are no longer individual controls for air. It was so uncomfortable and we were hot a sweaty the whole flight. The crew said that there was nothing they could do about it."
Pros: "The flight was comfortable and the onboard crew were very nice."
Cons: "Since the flight was delayed taking off, the layover in Stockholm was very short. The airline did nothing to rush those of us through or contact our connecting SAS flights, and a few of us missed our connections by just a few minutes because of it. SAS did provide alternate tickets for me, but I arrived at my destination several hours late and the whole situation could have been avoided pretty easily."
Pros: "The movies."
Cons: "My selected seat was broken and I was moved to a seat directly on the side of the toilet. Not nice!"
Cons: "Flight delayed 5 hours."
Cons: "Water and beer paying"
Pros: "This was my first flight in SAS and it was a wonderful experience. The crew was pleasant and the seating was spacious and the plane was clean. Very refreshing atmosphere."
Pros: "Upgraded 2 biz 4 reasonable $, everything great"
Pros: "Comfortable flight, friendly crew. Would fly again!"
Cons: "Food could have been better"
Cons: "I did not like my flight because ... I could not take it! I needed to change only one date (return) and was quoted $1300 for that one change. Getting a completely new ticket was cheaper, but not cheap. With such cost of even minor changes, next time I will look into booking directly with airlines, instead of Kayak; sorry to say that, as I really liked using your service."
Pros: "The free, in-flight movies, the in-fight dinner, and the friendly, multi-lingual staff were GREAT commodities."
Cons: "I was in economy/SAS Go class, so it was nearly impossible to get more than one or two hours of sleep on a long flight, (i.e. about eight hours). Maybe they should reserve the seats with extra leg room for those who actually need it, and have the seats recline even further."
Pros: "The service was excellent. The food very good. Toilets inorder and clean, even just before Copenhagen. In Chicago i had to wait about 30 min tor a wheelchair. It seemed that noone wanted to go to termimal 5. A very nice young man finally came, he gave me frindly and excellent service. ALIS"
Pros: "Everything worked well."
Cons: "Movie selection could be lager."
Pros: "Easy flight, nice crew members, no issues had here"
Cons: "My luggage didn't show up for five days of a 7 day trip from a direct flight! SAS was completely useless by phone, email, and Facebook.... They set up a phone line that nobody monitors and had my luggage in-country for days before even sending someone to deliver it"
Pros: "Wide seats with excellent leg room in exit row- a bottle of water waiting at or seats-- we love the two seat configuration --attendants ready to serve any need with a smile."
Cons: "Bought our tickets from Kayak and as a result had a very difficult time upgrading seats."
Pros: "Wonderful service! Flight attendants kind and thoughtful. Once in terminal 5 (from terminal 1) a Sas gate agent escorted us to flight since our previous United flight was so late"
Pros: "The flight crew (flight attendants are the best I've encountered in terms of tone and hospitality) cleanliness, the food, frequent offers of water, your own TV and numerous options for entertainment and ability to track flight"
Cons: "Like the sleek style but still wish there was a little more leg room"
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: "Overall, the flight was good. As always, I like SAS's service. Crew are friendly and accommodating."
Cons: "When waiting to board the flight, it was difficult to understand when different parts of the plane were boarding because of the soft volume of the loud speakers. All people could really hear was "boarding now", which created a bit of a rush of everyone. It would be helpful if there were an SAS representative to stand next to the line, to physically say to people, 'Okay, we are now only doing priority boarding. If you are priority boarding, please stand her. After that, if you are business class, please stand here. Everyone else, please wait, but know that we will start to board from the back of the plane. Thank you." This will to help guide people BEFORE the ticket check."
Cons: "Charging for second beverage. Losing our bag and not getting it to us for the duration of our travels, despite repeated promises to do so."
Cons: "Late take- off and landing. Indifferent flight attendants. Two of my children were bullied into giving up their bulkhead seats to a couple with a child. We had to pay extra for those seats and we were given no compensation."
Pros: "The plane was brand new with comfortable seats that had adjustable headrests. This made sleeping very easy. I was impressed with the food and the flight attendants were great."
Cons: "The seating area was cramped making it difficult to move around, do work or view the screen.I know this is typical of coach class but I still don't like it. The selection of movies was adequate but smaller than I'm used to. There wasn't much in the way of music to choose from. Only one choice for jazz and classical."
Pros: "The food was excellent on this flight. Flights were on time."
Cons: "Entertainment was hard to hear with the ear buds provided. Wait time in security at Chicago was terrible. It took nearly an hour to get through security."
Pros: "Cabin crew was nice."
Cons: "Plane was old and really dirty. no televisions. I booked a premium seat, but was assigned a middle seat in economy. Not sure where the glitch took place. Cabin crew was friendly though. ALSO, SAS/United booked my connection through O'Hare, giving me about 1.5 hours to clear customs and security...I was only able to make my flight due to some nice people who let me cut lines and a lot of running through the terminal. Generally annoyed with the experience."
Pros: "I slept for most of the flight, and had space to lie down. I skipped the dinner, and the stewardesses did not wake me up at all, inspite of their serving most people on board. When I woke up close to landing, I asked for a cup of coffee, which the stewardesses made for me promptly. The flight was smooth, and the good night's rest was refreshing."
Pros: "On time flights. Very friendly personnel"
Pros: "Clean airplane, good food and good customer service from check in to landing."
Pros: "I liked that it was comfortable and that the crew did not constantly make announcements or wake you. They made boarding easy. I loved being able to utilize the lounge. My 4 hour layover was easy and relaxing."

Flight was ok

Pros: "The crew was friendly, the planes clean, flights on time. The blankets were a very nice touch."
Cons: "On my first flight, I paid for use of wifi, but it kept kicking me off the connection. Repeatedly, the entire time. On the second flight, there was no option for wifi at all. It would have been nice to pay for wifi once for use all the way to my destination."
Cons: "They served 1 bottled water the whole 5 hour flight. They charged me $90 for having a backpack instead of a suitcase due to it being a “funny size.” Finally, they didn’t hold the connecting flight even though we were only 20 minutes late."
Pros: "Flight, once we got on one, was fine."
Cons: "The delay of the first leg from Chicago resulted in missing the Stockholm leg by minutes. They didn’t hold the plane, but told us if we ran, we might make it. The gate was closed when we got there. Also, apparently chicken sandwiches in Iceland contain shrimp, which I’m allergic to."
Cons: "Didn’t realize I was going to be charged $65.00 per suitcase. Checked three and that added$195.00 to my overall cost. The only thing we got on board was water everything else was a charge."
Cons: "It was very warm on the plane for the 6+ hours of flying, making it difficult to sleep or be comfortable."
Cons: "2 list bags"
Cons: "late departure, no assistance with short connection, crew on the plane and at the airport couldn't give us any information about where to go for our connecting flight, our luggage wasn't transferred and it took them more than 48 hours to get it to us."
Pros: "Crew was very nice. Flight was comfortable."
Pros: "Flight attendant was really hot and super helpful"
Cons: "Getting our actual row that we selected"
Pros: "It was Delta Airlines"
Cons: "Did not get the extra legroom we paid for, plane was awful hot and stuffy. Crew allowed 3 kids aged about 4 to 12 to literally run up and down the aisle, running into people and screaming."
Pros: "Everything was on time , perfect"
Cons: "Don’t know"
Pros: "Plane was clean and the crew gave excellent service. I loved breathing in the cold air when I got off the plane on the tarmac. I didn’t even mind the quick bus ride up to the terminal. The Reykjavík airport is very calm, quiet, and serene. After a Chicago, it was quite pleasant!"
Cons: "This is my first time flying Icelandair. Paying for food on a transatlantic flight really surprised me! I wish I would’ve known this ahead of time as I thought I was getting dinner on my flight. Next time I’ll pack a sandwich."
Pros: "Everything was on time and no hassle with boarding passes luggage and boarding. I liked that there were 2 exits in Iceland. All staff that we encountered were awesome. Overall a good flight. Loved the entertainment options. Liked getting the water bottle when we boarded and the blanket and pillow."
Cons: "I was expecting a bigger plane and seats for overseas travel. I was surprised when the plane was same size and capacity that I fly within the continental US. I could not fit my usual carry on bag under the seat in front of me and I can always fit that under on other flights I’ve been on. I felt the seats were really tight which made it difficult to sleep. Sleeping on the plane is necessary when traveling internationally."
Cons: "One beverage was provided and water throughout the flight."
Cons: "The flight attendants were rude answering the simplest question like what beverages are available to drink, etc coke, Pepsi...that basically tells you all you need to know about the level not only to me but all passengers in my area"
Pros: "None"
Cons: "Flight delayed"
Pros: "Most crew members were great except one was very sour."
Cons: "No room under the middle seat for a bag and feet barely fit. They forgot to give pre-ordered meal. Hot in our part of cabin but stewardess made and effort to fix it."
Cons: "I missed my flight because my flight into Chicago was delayed by 3 hours. I called Icelandairs customer service 7 hours before I missed my flight and told them the situation and they gave me the wrong information and gate number. Once I arrived in Chicago I couldn’t find anyone to help me at the airport and I was brushed off multiple times. After staying on hold all night long with icelandairs customer service I was hung up on. I ended up buying a completely new ticket and still haven’t been able to talk to a representative about it."
Cons: "That it said on my itinerary that I had economy class but then they still charged me $90 to check a bag. It didn’t say anywhere that my ticket was economy light. I would have bought my bag beforehand to save money but it was not clear at all."
Cons: "There was no food offered although I had a 6 hour flight from O'Hare to Reyjkavik , and then another from Reyjkavik to Berlin. Both flights were with icelandair"
Pros: "Friendly staff Good entertainment options USB at every seat"
Cons: "Food options very expensive"
Pros: "Shouldn’t have to buy food on an international flight not even a low fair flight"
Pros: "Good price"
Cons: "Poor poor poor customer service."
Pros: "Overall great airline"
Cons: "Handled my layover transition extreme Lu poorly. We’re very rigid and I didn’t get into Zurich until the late evening. Missed a very important meeting..."
Pros: "Nothing out of ordinary that makes you guys stand out positively."
Cons: "I paid $440 for my ticket and additional $190 for my luggage. With over $600 worth of flight, l can’t even get a small free meal, not even a snack. That is bad. Any flight within United State, they would offer snacks, talkless of flight that is over 6 hrs. I will never fly Icelandair anymore."
Pros: "Good entertainment options."
Cons: "The seats were so uncomfortable."
Cons: "The experience was fine other than I was surprised for an international flight I had to buy food."
Cons: "The people at the airport itself are some of the most rude people I have encountered in all of my travels. Throwing my tray back at me while I was putting my shoes in it and saying “it’s not done, take it”. She bruised my stomach because I tried to stop it and grab it, and dumped my stuff, including a now broken camera. Very unprofessional and not necessary."
Pros: "Service seamless,"
Cons: "Seats not the most comfortable in the world, could not figure out entertainment, wifi did not work"
Pros: "Swiss air and Lufthansa are probably better than Icelandair"
Cons: "I barely made my flight because I was rebooked to an ealier! flight via Switzerland instead via Iceland and that only three hours prior to regular departure, and without any notification on my cellphone. If I had not been more than two hours early at the airport I'd miss my re-assigned flight because it was leaving more than an hour earlier than my original flight. In the meantime I still got messages that the flight via Iceland would be delayed (which could have mislead me thinking I might have even more time than I actually had). Due to the subsequent rush at check-in my bag got pulled out by TSA and arrived two days late at Frankfurt! Meanwhile I had to travel to France without clean clothes and medication."
Pros: "I saw a lot of bad reviews and got nervous, but I had no trouble at all. I only wish they served food..."
Pros: "Clean plane. Nice crew. On time."
Cons: "No food service unless you paid for it al la carte. I would expect a bag of peanuts at minimum but preferably a breakfast! WiFi available... but again at a price. I would expect it free. I did not have ear-phones for the entertainment. Had to pay 8 euros to buy some! How long has that been an up fee?"
Cons: "no communication from crew and cockpit. we were sitting an hour on the runway without getting info what is going on. almost missed my connection because if the delay, where btw the crew won't give you any information either about connecting flights (e.g. gate#)"
Pros: "We safely arrived."
Cons: "The plane was only a 757, so smaller and more cramped. No food was served despite it being a 6+ hour flight. The screen in front of my seat did not work, but would not shut off. The seat next to me the headphones jack did not work. We were also late taking off and landing, making our connection very tight"
Cons: "Since my first int'l flight in 1980 I have never had one on which there was no food - no food - offered as a gratuity. I received 2 cups of water and asked for a cup of coffee. Aside from the food issue, this practice risks passengers' dehydration. No headphones offered, no pillows. Plane late departing from Reyjavik to Paris. Cramped airport. No place to sit other than the floor and on radiators."
Pros: "Friendly staff. Great touch screen on the seat & had a wide variety of movies to choose from."
Cons: "No 6 hour flight is that comfortable. Didn't get a chance to try any food (sleeping?)."
Pros: "Enjoyed travel videos about Iceland that you could watch before arriving."
Cons: "There wasn't any food or beverage service and the plane seemed very crowded. The seats were not comfortable- by the time we arrived in Iceland, my butt was quite sore."
Pros: "The crew and check in were easy and fast in CHI. The flight was just fine - be ready for Icelandic first then English - fun experience for sure! The detailed information they gave about what to do about our next flight in Reykjavik was helpful and proactive. One stewardess on the flight even gave my wife a whole extra large bottle of water and said, "Anything for the new mother!" Good customer service and sensitivity."
Pros: "Nice flight crew and good customer service."
Cons: "Food wasn't included nor were any snacks, 2$8,$ I thought was a bit cheap for an international flight. Also, it wasn't the best selection for special diet people (I'm vegetarian and gluten free)."
Pros: "Water was nice, boarding was ok, seat wasn't too uncomfortable"
Cons: "No food"
Pros: "Movies were available to watch."
Cons: "The only thing offered was one drink and this was an international flight. The flight was delayed which resulted in us arriving only fifteen minutes before boarding our next flight which was also delayed. You had to pay for internet unless in their premier club."
Pros: "Complimentary water bottle, pillows and blankets on each seat upon boarding, entertainment selection"
Cons: "Flight very late, no food offered except for purchase"
Cons: "Business class seats in Row 1 were AWFUL! No leg room and no foot rests. The most cramped and uncomfortable transatlantic flight we hsve ever taken. We had chosen tso seats in row 3 or 4 when we booked this flight months ago. But when we got our bosrding passes, our seats had been changed to row 1. We got off the plane in Reykjavik barely able to walk. The airport layout in Reykjavik where we changed planes was not well thought-out ... almost no signs,long lines. We thought ee would miss the flight to Stockholm. That flight was OK; we had better seats. But we were--and still are--so upset about the Chicago to Reykjavik flight that I will not fly again on Icelandic."
Cons: "Our flight was delayed for 1.5 hours but we were told not to worry, that we would make up the time in the air. We were late landing and I had to run to the gate to catch my connecting flight. Although I made it to the gate on time, Icelandair thought we would arrive later, so they had already given away our tickets. I had to be rerouted and reconnected through England before catching another connection to my final destination. This delayed my arrival to my destination by more than 8 hours. I will never fly Icelandair again!!"
Pros: "This was probably the worst flight I have ever been on (and I have flown internationally a lot - and travel weekly for work purposes Icelandair - hands you a bottle of water and you never see the flight attendant again - this for a 6 hour flight!!!!!! the plane was extremely hot there was no communication to tell people what was going on, that we were late, agents to help - etc etc - nothing needless to say - I will never fly Icelandair again others were worse then us - some had no flight to be redirected too - and side note - the customer service counter at Birmingham - had NO ONE there for over an hour - they had to finally call someone to come down and help the many people there"
Cons: "Icelandair was delayed out of Chicago - but the agent stated our flight would be fine - we would only be arriving 15 min late - and even so - they would "hold" the flight" . We arrived and ran to the gate- people were still boarding - gate was open and the agent said to us and others - oh you are the Chicago people - you have to go to customer service. We find out we have been "bumped" off the flight and placed on a new flight 2 hours later with a non direct flight - we have to go through Birmingham now. We are delayed again out of Iceland and get into Birmingham 1 hour late. We were never told that we had to reclaim our luggage. When we preceded to reclaim our luggage - there was NO luggage. and spent over an hours looking for it Icelandair never put our bags on the plane - and stated they would go on flights sometime the next day - we still have no word"
Pros: "Crew was relaxed and kind."
Cons: "Delayed boarding. We left an hour late which resulted in a sprint through Reykjavik and missing luggage when i arrived at my final destination."
Pros: "The flight themselves were fine. Crew and planes were all up to par"
Cons: "The layover in Iceland was very tough for me. our the first leg of our journey has been delayed which is fine those things happen the airline had auto rebooked us as we were going to miss our second leg. However it wasn't until we attempted to board that new flight that we were told we needed new boarding passes as we had been rebooked again. We went and got our boarding passes and went to our gate to wait. We had been waiting there for maybe 15 minutes and became worried as no one standing around us was headed toward our destination and our flight was not on any television screens. I went back to the service desk and found out that there had been a gate change. We ran accross the airport and were nearly the last people in line for our next leg. Naturally our luggage did not follow us. We did receive our luggage a day later."
