Pros: "Q-suites are fantastic."

Pros: "seat was great"
Cons: "flight attendant should be nicer"
Pros: "Delighteful experience"
Cons: "Better guidance at transit stop"
Pros: "Plenty of room to move around"
Pros: "Q-suits. Very comfortable and private. Great upgrade to the 777. WiFi now available for very reasonable price"
Cons: "Bus transfer to Termial 5 is VERY poorly organized and takes over an hour. This makes it harder to get to Terminal 5 even if you don't have to clear security again. Seats had a bar under the padding at about the position of my hips. Uncomfortable to sleep for several hours"
Cons: "Ord to Doh: People kept window blinds open all through 15 hour flight Flight temperature kept very warm"
Pros: "Good food and good hospitality"
Cons: "The gentleman next to me had broad shoulders, so I spent most of the flight with my body a bit twisted, and eating without being able to move my right arm normally was undesirable. The cabin was kept a bit warm throughout the flight. We had a long wait (30 - 45 minutes after leaving the gate) before takeoff."
Pros: "Video on Demand at each seat in coach. Friendly staff. Also patient staff, what with the languages they have to cover with each flight. The airline goes everywhere so it’s impossible to say what anyone will be speaking."
Pros: "B777 Dreamliner is dreamy. Lots of overhead luggage space. Decent leg room (could always be more). Great individual entertainment screen for long transcontinental flights. Flight staff was a mixed international crew, very friendly, unpretentious, polite and just nice compared to other airlines. The planes they use seem very new. Would definitely recommend Qatar Air over Aeroflot any day."
Cons: "Food was decent for airline food but nothing to rave about and as with most airlines uses too much plastic packaging. Although I was pleased that some of the flights used metal flatware, but still too much waste in the industry in my opinion. Also, the headphone jack was not compatible with my headphones. The type used on the 777 is the dual pronged one. I did not have an adapter so had to use the crappy headphones that are provided."
Pros: "Food was great Seats were comfortable Everyone was super nice"
Pros: "Courteous and friendly staff, on the plane and at the airports. Gave advice and directions when asked. Asked about time for food serving and said anytime you want something, come to the galley."

Cons: "Food Seat great service"
Pros: "On demand entertainment systems seem standard, as I’ve flown Qatar several times and always had it. Friendly staff. And Doha is a great connection airport."
Pros: "I have made more than 6 round trips on Qatar Airways for AMD-ORD-AMD in last 18 months and can not be happier!!"
Pros: "Cabin crew including the ground staff were awesome in providing best of its class customer service. Food and entertainment onboard was really good."
Pros: "My flight from Chicago to Doha was late to come in and there was a gate agent waiting for us and two other passengers with a sign when we got off the plane. He told us that our flight had already left but he would get us on the next one. We ended up getting seats on the next flight but then were also given the option to get a temporary visa and explore Doha for the night. We opted for the comped night which included a very nice hotel and $100 in meal vouchers. We absolutely LOVED Doha and the hotel and food was fantastic! I don't think I have ever received better service from an airline or a hotel. We ended up walking around Souq Waquif and the downtown until 1am (we are two young females!) with no issue and just used Uber to get to and from the hotel. Everything was so well laid out for us! No complaints whatsoever!"
Pros: "smooth and on time with efficient service."
Pros: "The aircraft from US to Qatar was upgraded and looked new. I love the new on demand video streaming, the touch controls are precise and better than previous version"
Cons: "I wish the airline was a bit more organized with boarding. I saw people with other zones boarding even when they were not called. The air hostess was friendly but I kinda got a feeling that she is doing me a huge favor when I asked for something more."
Pros: "Hospitality, boarding process"
Cons: "Food was slightly undercooked (chicken). Should have better process to check for that"
Cons: "same remark : Before our trip we called Kayak service desk with the request to reserve our seats. The answer obtained was that we should do it online. When we went online there were almost no more seats available so we decided to go to the check in counter in the airport. Although we were more than 3 hours in advance in the airport there were almost no seats available. We were very disappointed about this service, we never experienced this with any other airline companies..."
Pros: "Enjoyed the food and the service from the crew. Plane was new and relatively new and comfortable."
Cons: "The check in agents were not very polite or helpful. They did not offer much assistance and help for a first time customer on Qatar Airways. My bags were also not loaded onto the plane and had to arrive on a later flight"
Pros: "Seats are comfortable with plenty of leg space. Aircrafts were clean and tidy. Landing and take off were smoothest I have ever experienced."
Cons: "Menu choice was very basic and quantity was also poor. Food quality was below par in terms of taste and presentation. In-flight crew was inefficient and flow. Meal trays laid on meal tables for hours after the passengers finished food. Flight attendants literally responded in over 30 min of call. I pressed special meals online before boarding. However, the flight attendants were not sure. They went back to kitchen to verify that and return with the ordered meal."
Cons: "Luggage items are missing."
Pros: "It was excellent."
Cons: "It was excellent."
Cons: "No consistency with hand luggage. My companions and I were held to strict weight limits. Others were getting on with three and four bags."
Pros: "The entertainment options were fantastic! The flight attendants were very cordial and hardworking."
Cons: "I was very pleased with my flight. I really have I complaints."
Pros: "everything was as expected from a world-class in the travel world."
Cons: "In economy class, the seats are not as roomy as I thought and leg room space is not suited for overseas 12+ hours travel comfort."
Pros: "Service was very good"
Pros: "Vegetarian food options"
Pros: "The Chicago flight was more than hour late so had to miss my cincinnati connection. Had to wait for 4 hours at the airport to catch my next flight- making the long journey even longer. No priority lounge access provided to make up for the delay. Qatar never getting my business again."
Pros: "Inflight services, food"
Cons: "Wheelchair services in India, person left in between and had to walk with pain in my foot for a distance."
Cons: "Boarding staff give us wrong advice to make extra money from the passenger. They also pressurized us to decide quickly. our each check in baggage was over weight 1 KG or less than 1 KG due to faulty scale at home. Instead of giving us a choice or advice that you are allowed two more hand bags. They pressurized us to make one baggage over weight from all 7 bags and harassed us to do it quickly because they are closing counter in 20 minutes. That's how they charged me another $65. Also they lied on the counter that your seats are in a row but when i went into the plane our seats were separate. Lesson learned don't trust the person over the counter of Qatar airways."
Cons: "The boarding was unusually long. We stood in line for twenty minutes to board the plane. This was difficult for many. The staff and airlines were unorganized and scattered."
Pros: "The flight went very smooth including boarding, transferring at Istanbul. The infotainment system was helpful in a way that you could see the real time camera feed of the ground and runway."
Cons: "Fewer passengers on board. I know it’s about profits and financial feasibility, however listening to a prerecorded message about 1.5 social distancing while being boarded 20 cm from 2 passengers undermines the whole thing, isn’t it?"
Cons: "No coffee no tea. Disgusting."
Cons: "Foddd no gud"
Pros: "All what you think :)"
Cons: "The place's we are sitting can be better"
Pros: "safe and pleasant Thank you"

Cons: "Nice and smooth journey"
Cons: "This was the worst airline I have flown with. I booked my tickets last minute, it was for me and my 4 month old son. I had 3 suitcases a stroller and 2 carryons. I had paid for the suitcases, but because I was traveling alone I went there with my husband and he politely asked if they could please take the carryons on the plane because she can’t carry everything by herself. The manager came out and said that we have to pay. I said I already paid extra for my suitcases please help us because my wife is carrying our son, the diaper bag and 2 carryons. He was rude stating that we have to pay each carryon. We didn’t have the extra money and my wife took everything with her. If that’s how Turkish Airline treats their customers, they shouldn’t be operating. It was the last time I use this airline. No dignity or humanity, it’s all only about the money. And when I took the stroller with my son. They made me package the stroller by myself looking that I had my son on me crying and when I asked for help they said that they can’t help me... unbelievable... they see me with 2 carryons a stroller and a baby and they can’t help me."

Pros: "The food, the crew, the beverages, the entertainment and the level of cleanliness were all excellent. On time departure on both segments."

Pros: "Not much"
Pros: "Nothing whatsoever."
Cons: "Worst customer expireince ever. I was making a short trip to visit my very sick mother. Turkish Airline changed my connection time without notifying me such that I had 5 min left for my cooection in stambul. They gave me no other option and blamed this on Kayak and kayak blamed it on the Airline leaving me with no options. I had to stay in Birlin at my own expense. Complaint filed with Turkish airline resulted in nothing. I made several calls for update and only repose I got was we will send an email to the complaint dept. and you will here in 24 hours. This has been going on for over 5 days with no contect, update or resolution. Once back in the US, I plane to file a formal complaint with FAA and more. DO NOT take this airline. They are worst airline I have ever used and will never use it again."

Pros: "Lufthansa is one of few airlines in Europe with pure class and excellent service. Even in economy!"
Cons: "We had to cancel our tickets due to passport issue. They could not find acceptable new tickets. Plus additional money to pag was too much"
Pros: "The attendant who did help was fantastic! The ride was smooth."
Cons: "My 12 year-old had a screen that was not working and finally we got an attendant to help us out. But until then, I had attendants who were telling us to try things and then they'd leave and not come back to check up and follow through, which left us constantly trying to find someone...one time our call light was on for 20 minutes before anyone attended to us. In addition, the bathrooms were very dirty. The breakfast was a really bad muffin that I couldn't eat."
Pros: "Overall, United in US gets a two rating. International flights get a four rating."
Pros: "Lots of movies."
Pros: "Hats off and Thank you to the Man behind the counter at the gate. My knees are bad and I walk with a cane, he ensured I was transported safely and in time to the new gate when we had to switch gates because of plane issues."
Cons: "When a couple of ladies boarded and were going to be seated in the exit isle. going by the color of their skin and the clothes they were wearing, the stewardess with long blonde hair, assumed they did not speak English, and rather rudely told them that they should not be in this row. To which they responded in prefect English. told her they were comfortable with the emergency seat and helping passengers. She kept pushing them and finally they switched with a couple other passengers. VERY RUDE!!!!"
Pros: "The Crew was great. Friendly and attentive."
Cons: "Very small seat. Had a big person next to me and was quite uncomfortable"
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: "Seat was terribl, space tiny, no legroom no air movement, hot the entire trip,"
Cons: "The back of the plane was significantly warmer than the rest of the plane. Very little leg room."
Cons: "More room. Not losing our luggage at the end."
Cons: "On the Copenhagen-Milan leg, since I was in the cheap seats, even water cost; $3 for a bottle of water. They couldn't even offer a cup of water for free? False economy. And I was told that I had to pay for my luggage at the airport, then it was $120 for 1 bag. Ridiculous!"
Pros: "Clean and very good stewardesses"
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."
Cons: "Food was pretty atrocious. Before having this flight I tried many times to book a special meal but their website is nearly impossible to use. So on the flight I was given two options of fish or mexican beef. Mexican beef meant slow cooked beef in a salty brown sauce with 2 kidney beans. Yes 2 kidney beans. With potatoes carrots and broccoli. Entertainment was pretty lacking. Not a lot of options. Also it was freezing the entire flight."
Pros: "Good crew"
Cons: "Premium economy wasn’t as good as others"
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: "Great selection of movies."
Cons: "Sitting on runway for take off for some 40 minutes."
Pros: "The staff and other guests are always so polite! Getting the SAS Lounge Pass is always smart."
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: "Friendly staff"
Pros: "Flight was on time and the crew was effcicient"
Cons: "My knees hit the sear in front of m before they recloined. No way to sleep."
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: "Plane was quite empty"
Cons: "Plane wasn't in the best shape"
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."
Pros: "We were eventually rebooked in the class we paid for."
Cons: "Our flight was cancelled with no notice. We were rebooked in economy class when we paid over $5,000 for business class tickets, and told we would "probably" receive a refund for the difference. after much prodding, asking and begging, we were finally rebooked in a flight on Lufthansa the same night. That airline was upset, though, because SAS did not call them or notify them that we had been switched to their airline."
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: "Water and beer paying"
Pros: "Friendly and helpful staff."
Cons: "Narrow seats."
Pros: "Upgraded 2 biz 4 reasonable $, everything great"
Pros: "Everything was great"
Cons: "Nothing to mention"
Pros: "Boarding was quick, the staff was friendly, the plane was clean."
Cons: "I was really cramped in my seat and was unimpressed with the food."
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: "Nothing at all"
Cons: "Fight was canceled and no email or communication was possible with this company. Called SAS office - CLOSED. Stood in line for 2 hours and no one came or announced anything. Checkin agents were on dope-no help and checking machines not working!"
Cons: "A very dishonest experience. The booking never made it clear that I was not allowed to check my suitcase and I had to pay € 70 extra both coming and going and thereby paid 1 1/2 times more for my suitcase than for my ticket. I am very disappointed to be 'tricked' in this way and consider it a very dishonest business practice."
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: "Excellent meal and very friendly staff."
Cons: "The cabin temperature seemed pretty warm."
Pros: "There was a good choice of movies to watch while in flight. Boarding was quick and easy and all of the crew members were very nice. The woman I was sat next to was very quiet and was very nice and courteous. All in all a pretty good flight"
Cons: "The seats weren't very comfortable, but then no seat is comfortable after 8 hours. I can't complain too much. The food was much better than I remember it being ten years ago when I last flew internationally, but still not the best."
Cons: "Not enough room to work on laptop."
Pros: "12 people got bumped!"
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: "More room in normal seats and more comfortable. Newer and better screens than United too."
Cons: "Airplane food is almost never great, but it was edible."
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: "Miserable cramped seating ."
Cons: "1st class could not board because that area was not cleaned"
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."
Pros: "Free upgrade to SAS Plus, what's not to like!"
Pros: "The Plus Seating was really good"
Pros: "Entertainment options great, crew very helpful"
Cons: "The gate switched last minute. The crew was late, as the reason for the delay"
Pros: "Lucky is the passenger to get onboard a new SAS plane! Cleanliness aside. The built in phone chargers to the tele is genius. Nice to land fully charged!"
Cons: "I didn't like that they interrupted programming to announce they were walking on board shopping through the cabins. They did this twice! Really unnecessary!"
Pros: "I was traveling internationally alone with my 5-month old daughter. The crew was both kind and accommodating. It was a smooth stress-free trip for all!"
Pros: "On time flights. Very friendly personnel"
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."
Pros: "We were delayed leaving Chicago because of the weather, and so we got into Copenhagen late. The crew of this flight were kind enough to wait for me at the gate, even though it meant delaying the flight a bit. This was wonderful and greatly appreciated."
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."
Pros: "Great entertainment options"
Cons: "No internet from Chicago to Iceland didn't help"
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."
Pros: "Great company!"
Cons: "It was very warm on the plane for the 6+ hours of flying, making it difficult to sleep or be comfortable."
Pros: "Everything was good for economy class."
Cons: "The first leg of our Iceland Air fight was delayed, but they didn't update the departure time until after it was obvious that the plane wasn't going to be there on time. So we hurried to the gate only to wait nearly an hour. I wish they had updated the departure time earlier."
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: "Flight attendant was really hot and super helpful"
Cons: "Getting our actual row that we selected"
Cons: "You could have told me ahead of time that it costs $95 to bring a suitcase on board"
Pros: "I like the short trip from Chicago to Oslo, it is the shortest trips out of all the airlines. Staff is sweet and helpful, seats comfortable, and prices are reasonable."
Cons: "I usually travel with airlines that serve dinner and a breakfast. Iceland air is the only one I have experienced not doing that. Entertainment is a little more sparse than other airlines, often I get the same movies and tv series episodes on my way back from my trip as I had going there."
Pros: "It was Delta Airlines"
Cons: "The first leg Chicago to Iceland was uncomfortable due to the seats for some reason. From Iceland to London seats were much more comfortable. Iceland employees are the most friendly and helpful airline people I have ever dealt with."
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."
Cons: "No attempt was made to get me to Munich once they knew the initial flight was delayed and there was no way to make my connection. Once in Rekyavik they did not enable me to reach my connecting flight."
Pros: "Everything was on time , perfect"
Cons: "Don’t know"
Pros: "On time departure and arrival Friendly staff Easy flight and good time of arrival"
Cons: "food for purchase"
Pros: "Good basic service and ontime flights. No real frills but very adequate."
Pros: "Courteous staff, comfortable seats with pillows and blankets, great boarding system"
Cons: "Captain manspread... seriously dude, tone down the open thighs"
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."
Pros: "Friendly crew. Very comfortable plane and really enjoyed receiving the Iceland water bottle when boarding. Delicious! My husband and I are very tall so we enjoyed the spacious leg room."
Cons: "No meal service"
Pros: "Blanket and pillow already on chair. Pilots did an awesome job landing in a blizzard."
Cons: "No offer for headphones"
Pros: "We had a ton of space and it was so comfortable. I would fly with them everywhere I go if I could."
Cons: "Theres nothing I would say I “didn’t like”. Great experience."
Pros: "Good price"
Cons: "Poor poor poor customer service."
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."
Cons: "The flights are never on time. We had to run thru the Iceland terminal both going and coming back as none of their flights are on time and we had a 20 min connection..plus my mom is 91 years old and it was extremely hard to make our connecting flight both ways. I will never take this airline again!"
Pros: "Good entertainment options."
Cons: "The seats were so uncomfortable."
Cons: "Such a short connection time. 45 minutes does not allow for much margin of error."
Cons: "The experience was fine other than I was surprised for an international flight I had to buy food."
Pros: "Modern plane, comfortable seats had built-in headrests so bringing a travel pillow wasn't needed. I liked that they handed out bottles of water as you board. Free coffee, water, and juice, but otherwise you had to pay for snacks or anything else you might want."
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: "The lights were off from start to finish so we could sleep the entire way. No unnecessary announcements to annoy. Loved there was a pillow and blanket on all the seats and water as you boarded. I didn’t not eat or drink, so no comments there."
Cons: "Entertainment lacked options."
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."
Cons: "For the price food should be included"
Cons: "Ordered food off their website and wasn't given a meal."
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: "Not too long flight.courteous and polite staff"
Cons: "Smaller plane"
Cons: "Sisters bag arrived fine. Mine will not arrive until tomorrow."
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."
Cons: "Missed connection by a minute and got delayed ten hours."
Pros: "In theory a short connection to the US"
Cons: "No food unless you pay Staff not very nice Transfer at Reykjavik airport"
Pros: "Water was nice, boarding was ok, seat wasn't too uncomfortable"
