Pros: "Most of the crew was great with the exception of curbside check-in in Denver."
Cons: "Curbside needs to stop chasing cash tips and do their jobs. If they focused on that tips would be easy to come by. The curbside attendant that took my bag didn’t even bother to check my id. He asked me my name and asked where my destination was. I told him Cincinnati as a layover then LaGuardia where he said that was wrong. He then proceeded to print a boarding pass that wasn’t mine and load my bag into the conveyor. Not 5 mins go by when I realize what happened I wound up having to go to special services to rectify the situation. Which ultimately consisted of me waiting another hour in LaGuardia to get my bag. Please delta have these curbside handlers actually want to do their job and stop chasing cash tips."
Pros: "Crew was very pleasant. Boarding and deplaning was smooth and easy!"
Pros: "Crew was friendly and efficient."
Pros: "Availability of WiFi, a charging port and media options puts Delta a step (or two) ahead of their competitors. The professionalism of the crew, as well as the complimentary food/beverage options are also excellent."
Cons: "Not the airlines fault, but my 6’4” frame doesn’t fit very well in a middle main cabin seat."
Pros: "We arrived eventually."
Cons: "Flight delayed three hours. Payed extra for an earlier flight. Very disappointing."

Pros: "The service, on time, employees very nice."
Pros: "Service was great"
Pros: "Comfort + was nice."
Cons: "Had a middle seat between two other men. I was given my seat by the gate. It would have been nice if they placed my more strategically. That might be asking too much but seems reasonable."
Cons: "Choice of healthier snack"
Cons: "Have rhe right to carry at least one luggage per person at no cost. Besides carry on and personal item. Tickets prices and luggage costs are extremely expensive."
Pros: "Good airframe."
Cons: "3+ hours delayed; didn't arrive until 3AM."
Cons: "Seats are so small. Flight was delayed."
Cons: "I bought a ticket thinking i bought it through kayak but I actually bought a ticket through a third party in India. Where no one spoke good English. I called the agency to find out if I needed a Visa for my visit to Australia and the told me no. So when I showed up to the airport I didn’t have the right documents and I MISSED MY FLIGHT. Also the wouldn’t just change my flight and charge me the change flight fee. They cancelled my flight entirely and made me buy a whole new ticket!!! Worst flight experience I’ve ever had and this is not my first time flying to Australia or out of country."
Pros: "Friendly cabin crew. Early am departure. On board entertainment is a great selection of movies/TV etc. Clean aircraft. Comfortable seating. Great flight."
Cons: "Had to wait for the crew from another flight before boarding p"
Cons: "The seats were in bad condition, I was surprised as Delta usually has well cared for interior and exterior airplanes."
Pros: "The flight attendants were all helpful and pleasant. The seats were comfortable. We were provided with plenty of liquids."
Cons: "The landing was pretty tough and we took off almost a half hour late."
Pros: "Crew was ok"
Cons: "Plane boarded late, took off late, arrived late. Boarding was confusing and slow."
Pros: "Very friendly gate attendants helped us fix the problem that our frequent flyer number had not been entered on the boarding pass. This may have been because of the booking co., Just Fly."
Cons: "Would have liked more seat options, like when I book on Delta's website. Didn't have enough advance warning."
Pros: "Food and entertainment was good"
Cons: "The bathroom I used was disgusting."
Pros: "Check in Denver super helpful Gate staff hustled to turn around flight Flight crew excellent"
Cons: "Flight delayed, almost missed international connections"
Pros: "Anything from free WiFi, entertainment, leg room, commentary drinks and snacks. Great service!"
Pros: "The Dutch flight attendant who took care of our economy side of the flight was personable, helpful, and cheerful. She made the flight definitely more pleasant because as you know, traveling overseas in economy is no picnic!"
Pros: "Short flight"
Cons: "In SLC they boarded by row numbers and not zones. Weird..."
Cons: "Engine problems-2 hour delay"
Pros: "Good flight crew"
Cons: "Delayed due to mechanical issues. For 3 hours. No offers for free drink or wi fi. When we finally land we were on the runway for half hour."
Pros: "Great people and crew early arrival nice passengers"
Cons: "Poor Delta DEN counter agent experience. Name on ticket didnt match Delta profile name nor TSA [rofile name. Delta counter agent would do nothing, except blame TSA. Would not check ticket name vs profile name. Happened two consecutive flights. Flight tomorrow morning has no TSA Pre clearance on boarding pass. This will be three consecutive flights. Also seated me next to a person who needed 2 seats to himself. Please never seat me next to a passenger who cannot fit in their own seat. I am switching to SWA."
Pros: "On two of the legs of the trip they notice I was a tall person with long legs and upgraded me to seats with more leg room!! I didn't even ask. Thank you."
Cons: "On the way back there were open seats with extra leg room and I asked the gate attendant if it was possible to switch my seat to one with more room and they said they only could if I paid extra."
Pros: "Crew was nice."
Cons: "The Entertainment sucked. Again I was sitting in comfort class which in theory should buy you more comfort and better entertainment. There was a ton of movies from the 90s and the same movie selection from about 6 months ago when I traveled with them. Also, what is going on, with having to use your own cell phone to watch movies on the plane? Whatever happened to the screens in the backseat of the front seat? I ended up with neck pain from trying to watch a movie on my phone. Delta has become very cheap. It is going into some serious decline."
Cons: "Let me just say that I’m a loyal Delta costumer until now. The flight attendants (the two women) were an absolute nightmare. They were so rude and condescending. I was carrying with me my service dog and a bag containing an expensive medication (it couldn’t go on the top bin). Despite being in the comfort class and having the seat next to me empty, we were tight for space. The flight attendants were unreasonable and forced me to put my medication on the top bin despite the fact I had told them it was extremely delicate, that it that to go upright, and that I needed to keep it with me. They did not listen and pressured me into giving them the medication. The medication could have easily gotten broken. Thankfully it didn’t but this is no way to treat a human being."
Pros: "Entertainment system is awesome and similar to what I usually see only on international flights."
Pros: "Crew was the best!"
Cons: "I really dislike the snack boxes. Snacks need to be more like a small sandwich or grapes, cheese and nuts. Not all that packaged stuff."
Pros: "Staff pretty friendly. Plane clean. Ran on time. Good communication. Even though shorter flight, had movie entertainment option. Before flight we had a flat tire so missed our flight. Agent extremely helpful getting us on another flight."
Pros: "Staff was courteous, flight uneventful but that's a good thing!"
Cons: "Long flight, difficult to sit that long (3 hrs plus)"
Pros: "It's a nice, comfortable flight with plenty of entertainment options."
Cons: "The coffee on board is lousy, but I'm not sure that is much of a surprise."
Cons: "I fly Delta quite often, and am usually pleased with their service, but the morning of June 23 was terrible. I got to the airport in Denver at 5:30 am for a 7:30 am flight to Atlanta, and the line to check a bag was about 40 people long. I waited 55minutes to check my bag, as they kept moving the ski priority people, and people in danger of missing their flight, to the head of the line. There were obviously not enough Delta workers on staff to process all the flights at that time."
Pros: "The moviea"
Cons: "The time of night"
Pros: "The flight attendants were so nice and accomadating. Even came by to refill our waters! I've never been on a flight with such friendly flight attendants!"
Cons: "they charge 300$ extra for a 14 year old child and dont give any service for the payment, they say it is to bring the child on and off the plane even though he can travel alone and has done it many times with other air lines. drive the parents uo the wall, make them wait endless time, and then they comlaine that thay have no time tofor the child and leave him standing with out even letting him to seat with the other air lines a child of 12 can travel alone."
Pros: "Reassignment was pretty easy."
Cons: "No accommodations were available for overnight stay due to delayed flight."
Pros: "Upgraded to first class"
Cons: "No entertainment system, no power outlet...for first class this is disgraceful"
Cons: "I drove 5 hours to get to the airport and unfortunately ended up delayed because of traffic and slow shuttles from parking. I arrived 1 hour before the flight, but security was so slow I didn't get to the gat until 10 minutes before arrival. There were no gate agents present and despite banging on the gateway door and other Delta agents at the adjacent gate, no one helped me. I can only surmise that they had already given away our seats, which were award tickets, GAINED BY BEING A LOYAL DELTA CUSTOMER. The gate agents were unapologetic and useless at rebooking, and I bought a ticket from Southwest instead. As i was trying to get to my sister's wedding, and repeatedly told the agents this, their behavior was particularly abominable. DELTA, YOU'VE LOST A LOYAL CUSTOMER."
Cons: "Seats too close - I'm not that tall and my knees were jammed against the seat in front of me."
Pros: "Was able to get on a flight after ours was cancelled. Delta was in scramble mode and their gate staff worked hard ot deal with a frustrated flying populaiton"
Cons: "After paying for first class round trip airfare, we were given seats in coach in the rear of the plane, in spite of empty seats (plenty of them) in first class and economy comfort."
Pros: "Plane was clean and staff were friendly"
Cons: "The snack options were quite average"
Pros: "Flight attendants were lovely"
Cons: "Seats can be better."
Pros: "Good crew, comfort and timing"
Cons: "I got what I expected"
Cons: "Flight late more than 3-4 hours on Frankfurt. So upset. I will never and ever try with Frankfurt again. I bought shortest way ticket to pay more money but unfortunately flight late about 3-4 hours. Money trap. I would love to have another free flight or I will post the tickets on facebook, Twitter and etc... To make a terrible flight reputation."
Cons: "Better eat before you board. The food from Denver to Munich was truly uneatable. I am serious and I am not a picky eater."
Pros: "It was long flight but everything was just right. Will use this company again."
Cons: "Food was OK, could have been better."
Pros: "Good leg room in aircraft and comfortable seating."
Cons: "My checkedin baggage did not reach the final destination and was delayed by 24 hours. Further, when my baggage did reach, one suitcase was damaged. Did not expect this from Luftansa."
Cons: "The flight never took off after 3 hours on board on the tarmac. There was poor communication from the staff at the airport and no compensation from Lufthansa."
Pros: "best take off and landing I’ve ever experienced. 2 meals for an 8 hour flight and all the red wine I could drink!"
Pros: "Everything exceeded expectations. Lots of food, space, drinks, and excellent flight crew. Excellent video selection."
Pros: "Flight delayed leaving, but arrived on time"
Cons: "Food was so-so. Didn’t know wireless headphones were not compatible with inflight movies. Flight attendants seemed grumpy"
Cons: "I have been transatlantic for forty years on various carriers. Without a doubt this was my worst flying experience ever."
Pros: "This flight is usually fully booked but there happened to be an empty seat next to mine which was much appreciated"
Pros: "I like the Aircaraft - A350-900 and service"
Cons: "You cancelled my flight & I lost a whole day of mt trip!"

Pros: "The bathroom downstairs"
Cons: "Late arrival inMunich, rush to connection and my luggage didn’t make it"
Pros: "Great service. everything was on time, or early. overall pleasant experience."
Pros: "Visa for India was not checked in Denver. Landed in Frankfurt and discovered that the visa was expired. Stuck in Frankfurt for 3 nights until new visa was issued. No babes the entire time I was in Germany. Arrived in Mumbai after paying the $350 US change fee and no bags. Bags finally arrived on Monday at 9AM Without clothes, toiletries and medications for 6 nights. Now I am delayed and will probably have to pay rebuke and fare change to extend my stay here."
Pros: "Lufthansa is extremely efficient, and the staff is very helpful all while being cheerful and kind. The planes are new and clean, everything was a notch above typical economy carriers. Well done!"
Pros: "1 hor 30 minutes instead of 2 hours 15"
Cons: "Worst food ever, and zero entertainment"
Pros: "Crew was excellent. Plane was very clean."
Cons: "Seats in economy are miserably uncomfortable especially for a flight of this many hours."
Pros: "I liked that if I asked for something the crew would get to me rapidly. Extra leg room."
Cons: "Boarding process: just a lot of confusion. Inflight crew service poor: the was no time to have any brain reaction when they would pass by with coffee or anything...and when I asked for coffee the answer for a gentlemen of the crew was: coffee already passed by. Really!!?? Make sure that +$1200 are spent well. Rude or inattentive crew members shouldn’t be on flights that are that long...I had to nsist to have a miserable cup of coffee. Movie selection was poor. USB port didn’t work. Shame on you!"
Pros: "At least Lufthansa has a little bit more leg room."
Pros: "Plane was clean"
Cons: "no entertainment, cramped seats"
Cons: "Munich airport should be improved far more. it took more than 20 mins to find a toilette. they should install more toilette for the travellers."
Pros: "The best in-flight service I have ever had on the Lufthansa flight from Denver to Munic!"
Cons: "Couldn't reserve a seat, even 24 hours in advance because web checkin was turned off. Ended up in the middle of the middle on both directions."
Cons: "We were charged a rebooking fee by Lufthansa when customs searched luggage causing us to miss connecting flight"
Cons: "Seats are small, no entertainment, food was below average."
Pros: "the crew are exellent"
Pros: "The entire experience was great. Easy check-in, boarding, on time, friendly service, good food, good movies, and overall a really nice atmosphere for such a long flight. Would recommend this Flight to anyone."
Pros: "The perfect assistance. We are very grateful, many thanks to the man who helped us in all we needed."
Pros: "The overall feeling of this flight was 'relaxed'...after getting over the fact, that this was a huge (two story) airplane. Short flight from Denver to Frankfurt...only 8 hours:)"
Cons: "I would have loved to be offered eye shades and ear plus, since most passengers watched movies and i wanted to sleep:)."
Pros: "Flight was on time comfortable good crew clean and upbeat"
Pros: "Great service, crew attentiveness and economy comfort. Movie and music selection was good."
Cons: "Slightly larger food portion"
Pros: "Good flight good seats smooth ride."
Cons: "Boarding was not organized."
Pros: "Good job keeping up on food and beverages. Entertainment was great. It was a long flight but was manageable with great service"
Pros: "United is a good partner to Lufthansa. I like United. It was a quick flight, but a good one."
Pros: "Nice crew"
Cons: "Lack of leg room!!! After my bicycle box was inspected they failed to secure my bike the way I had it in the box. Bike was flipping around in box. Bent rear brake calipers. Bent brake hoods. Rear skewers were uncoupled. No way to treat a $10,000 bike! Very upset!"
Pros: "Pleasant crew."
Cons: "Annoying kids in seats behind us :( Not enough leg room for someone over 6 feet tall."
Pros: "Lufthansa is one of few airlines in Europe with pure class and excellent service. Even in economy!"
Pros: "Disappointed overall. United Airlines took over here and you could immediately tell the difference."
Cons: "Seats were uncomfortable, no food only snack which is typically crushed pretzels. I typically never fly United because of their service, food etc very poor"
Pros: "I've flown on many different airlines since I was 10 years old and hands down this Lufthansa flight was the best and smoothest flight I have ever experienced. First of all, the plane was very comfortable and had good leg room. The flight staff were all extremely courteous and attentive. There was one point where I was reading in the dark and the crew member asked if I wanted the light turned on to read! Normally I don't sleep on flights, and the same crew member asked if I wanted ice cream since I don't feel like sleeping. The crew seemed to have this magic ability to make the flight more comfortable without the passenger having to even think about it, or try to ask for extra service. All of the crew were just very outstanding and organized throughout the entire flight, they were all generally very helpful and kind. By the time I got off the 14 hour flight, I didn't feel even the slightest bit tired or anxious, I was able to spend time with my friends in Budapest upon landing and stay out till 2 am without having to sleep or rest because the flight was so good."
Cons: "Rude (American) passengers not keeping the "curtain down", when it was time to rest, and being very chatty. Also baby crying, but this is inevitable, it happened to all of us, when we had small babies."
Pros: "Great crew members, service, and flight."
Cons: "Seat (43A) in economy class in Airbus 330 is not great for oversea flight unlike I flew in LH 747-400 in the past, it does not fit 6+ ft tall people. I could not stretch my legs at all. My knee keep hitting next seat at front of me. Hello Lufthansa, are you listening?"
Pros: "The food was very good. The service, the preciseness."
Cons: "I didn't like the entertainment, there should me more options for movies in English and Arabic."
Cons: "They cancelled the flight and did not help at all for rescheduling."
Pros: "Seats had extra legroom which was very nice."
Cons: "Screens were on by default and hard to figure out how to turn off. Ads are very annoying."
Pros: "The Icelandic movie selection with English subtitles was nice."
Cons: "Icelandair is not great for international flights. No free food or booze."
Cons: "The check in was very slow - only one Iceland Air representative was at the counter."
Pros: "Entertainment was pretty good."
Cons: "Seats seemed small for average size person. 2 flights on my 3 leg journey were late departing and arriving. No missed connections but it was close."
Pros: "Crew was polite"
Cons: "Boarding was late"
Pros: "The crew was great. Very smooth flight, no problems or delays."
Cons: "I never took my flight, the customer service to cancelling my ticket would have been a huge help."
Pros: "Reasonable fares. Good baggage accommodations. Denver to Iceland direct. Nice flight staff. The flight attendant pointed out the people who were awake the northern lights which was definitely the highlight of my trip!"
Cons: "Seats small. Surprised no meals unless purchased. But didn’t matter too much I ate before the flight left. And it was nice to have something to purchase if needed. It was confusing where I could purchase my baggage ahead of the me while checking in online so I just paid for it once I got to the airport."
Pros: "Nice flight. Empty seat between the two of us! Arrived earlier than expected."
Pros: "The overall mediocre entertainment was the best part."
Cons: "Bag drop took 75 minutes waiting in a line with minimal signage. The middle seat is not designed to accommodate a small backpack, let alone, my tiny, size 5 feet. There are no snacks provided (7.5 hour flight) and NO refills on WATER!!"
Cons: "Baby in front of me and baby next to me took turns screaming during the entire trip."
Cons: "Technical difficulties boarding and unboarding. Which made it a rush to have to go back through customs in Reykjavik to board the next plane"
Pros: "flight attendants great and accommodating den - kef"
Cons: "it was a little toasty on the plane"
Pros: "Excellent on board entertainment."
Cons: "No meal on board for an international flight."
Pros: "Comfortable planes, nice crew, great pilots"
Cons: "No food served"
Cons: "Never flee international without getting a free meal before. Pretty sad. Plus, they charged for earphonestoo. Ridiculous."
Pros: "the route and speed of transfer to the next flight"
Cons: "Poor range of foods, limited supply available by the time the crew gets to you. Tea was made in a coffee pot and tastes horrible."
Pros: "Kids get activities and a special meal box. Flight attendants were helpful in making our row restful for my kids to sleep. Nicer flight than I expected."
Cons: "Nothing - would fly again!"
Cons: "No dinner meal served and only one beverage service for 7 hour flight. Had to wait a very long time to order a noodle bowl and beer (not complementary), which were mediocre. Iceland air does not recognize global entry, therefore I could not get TSA pre-check or expedited customs."
Pros: "Not too long flight.courteous and polite staff"
Cons: "Smaller plane"
Cons: "3 hour delay from Denver translated into a 6 hour delay to my final destination. Food on board is expensive, even when other airlines offer food in their ticket prices. Very likely will not fly on Iceland Air again."
Pros: "The crew was courteous, and polite. Vwry helpful, and the flight was extremely fun, ibe never seen so much in my life, and being able to follow the flight path was my favorite."
Cons: "Because i didnt have an aisle seat, sometimes they seemed to forget I might habe rubbish, but overall they were always walking by to assist. Still a positive."
Pros: "Friendly staff. Low wait time at passport control compared to other connection points in Europe."
Cons: "We were delayed for two hours due to a weather delay from the day before. When we boarded our plane it was cold, and then we had to sit and wait for 45 minutes while we waited for connecting passengers. I would've preferred to be held up inside the terminal a little longer than sit on a cold plane with little communication. No water fountains at KEF"
Pros: "The flight was quiet and I was able to get sleep on the transatlantic leg. Passport control at KEF was quick and plenty of nice places to wait during my layover which had been extended thanks to anweather delay.frie"
Cons: "Hard to rate food when it's for purchase and I didn't consume any. No drinking fountains at KEF Food for purchase only"
Pros: "Great in-flight music and movies. Top notch. Friendly and quick service too."
Cons: "Airport in Reykjavik was awful. They had 5 or 6 flights leaving at the same time out of the same wing and so there were crowds of people standing around with no direction..."
Pros: "On board entertainment was good (i.e., movies, shows, etc.)"
Cons: "No food was served."
Pros: "Very comfortable seat in row 5"
Pros: "clean cabin"
Cons: "Tiny seats (average sized male here - trust - they are tiny) All food is charged (not a single piece of free food was offered; $8/sandwich) Lost luggage - I've never dealt with airline personnel (in person & over phone) that displayed such a level of apathy. Compensation ceiling: $99. They apologized about the incident as if they were sorry that it was raining that day - not losing 2 pieces of luggage and not having any means to track them. Check-in personnel: They only gave me a single luggage tag for 3 pieces of luggage - they should have given me 3. Would have made tracing lost luggage easier. Employee @ IAD told me that if I didn't show up at the boarding gate 40 minutes prior to boarding that they would remove my luggage from airplane and that I could risk losing flight (wtf?). Icelandair is one of the worst airlines I have ever flown. I highly recommend looking elsewhere. They may offer rates 20% cheaper than other major carriers, but that discount accompanies a steep price. It's an airline run by inexperienced, lackluster, apathetic staff who, frankly, have no business operating an airline. If your options are flying with a major carrier vs Icelandair - and the price difference is a few hundred $: pay the extra money; you'll be glad you did. Icelandair's prices are not low enough to justify all the discomforts and liabilities which accompany them. Look elsewhere. Keep this in mind: I'm a seasoned flyer. This airlines barely ranks one notch up from Ryanair."
Cons: "The flight from Denver was delayed an hour. Our connecting flight in Iceland DID NOT WAIT for the seven of us. We were supposed to be in Geneva 3 hrs later but waited in iceland 7 hrs the sent to Frankfort Germany before being flown to Geneva 24 hrs after departing Denver. We had two toddlers with us. There were flights on other airlines available without delay, Icelandair had no compassion."
Cons: "First time I have flown on the international flight and there was no food"
Pros: "The crew is always excellent"
Cons: "That you do not serve food"
Cons: "My wife's bag did not make the plane from KEF to AMS. Still hasn't arrived 30 hours later."
Cons: "Depending on the seat you get (aisle, middle, or window) you either can or cannot fit anything under the seat in front of you. Each seat has different space. What I usually take wouldn't fit anywhere but the window. The middle seat space is USELESS as there is something installed that MAY give you about 6 inches from floor to it. The aisle seat's forward under space is a cube shape, so typical carry-ons won't fit there either. As I slept the whole way to Reykyavik, I don't know much about the service. The under seat space may lead me to not booking Icelandair again."
Pros: "Icelandair is great because your connection waits for you even if your flight is late."
Pros: "The crew was nice and it was nice that they gave my 8 year old son an activity bag and free meals. The entertainment center was great. The flight was on time and everything seemed to run smoothly."
Cons: "It felt like a domestic flight in that there wasn't a lot of extra space and we had to pay for everything (food, snacks, headphones, wifi) aside from soft drinks."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "No food or drink amenities"
Cons: "No blankets and the temp in the plane was freezing. Possibly this is only for this specific flight, very little info on delay and almost no info on what was going on."
Pros: "Entertainment options, crew was very polite and helpful"
Cons: "Any overnight flight should provide a meal or better meal options to buy"
Cons: "Meals on menu were not available."
Pros: "that it wasn't Iceland air. we were re-booked with Lufthansa (through Frankfurt) and the crew had bought dinner for the 36 extra passengers (from Iceland air missed connections) -- for a 3 hour flight! so let me recap: Iceland air had NO FOOD for our transatlantic flight. Lufthansa BOUGHT FOOD for the extra passengers for a 3 hour internal Europe flight! next time we will fly Lufthansa =)"
Pros: "I enjoyed everything about my experience with Icelandair. I am going to be flying into London through them for now on and hopefully on an annual basis!"
Pros: "Was offered a seat so we weren't seated 3 across on our side of the aircraft"
Cons: "I preordered a meal that they didn't get from the caterer and none available on board. Waiting area for flight had no seats."
Cons: "The movies were all old, no new variety. They refused to let us take our bag on to the plane even though it fit in their provided sample bin and made us check it at the gate. There was plenty of room on the plane bins and several bigger backpacks than our small duffle bag! This caused us a lot of extra time spent upon arrival waiting for it"
Cons: "you cancelled my flight, no more Iceland air for us, we had to cancel our entire vacation."
Cons: "Flight was cancelled & no alternative flight was offered. Had to spend $350 more for a last minute flight & lost a day's vacation"
Cons: "No food served in economy. Bought a tapas box for 11 euro that was not worth even half that."
Pros: "Flight nice, easy, crew good. Good seats. nothing wrong really"
Cons: "I didnt' realize there was no food at all! Oh well, I guess that's how I got such a cheap fare."
Pros: "Service was good, seat was comfortable."
Cons: "Having to buy a meal on a seven-hour flight is surprising to me."
Pros: "I appreciated the fact that we were able to fly out despite there being a major snow storm and closed airport just hours before our takeoff. We also appreciated being able to switch our connection flight fairly easily once we knew we would be delayed. The staff was very kind and since we had a longer layover in Keflavik, we were very grateful for the food vouchers to used in the airport while we waited."
Cons: "The airline wouldn't make a decision about whether or not the plane would be flying out on time or be delayed until about an hour before our original boarding time. Seeing as the airport and only road getting to the airport were closed, it seems like they would have been able to make that decision and alert all passengers much sooner. We kept calling in to check on the flight status and they said we would receive texts and emails with any changes, but I never did."
Pros: "Crew was friendly, food was good"
Cons: "Entertainment was broken in one of our seats, the seats were not comfortable"
Pros: "The seats were comfortable"
Cons: "Everything was ok"
Cons: "Took a very long time to empty the plane via staircases. For a 747, I expected a jetway at Heathrow."
Pros: "I really like this airline"
Cons: "The crew were all very nice"
Pros: "My flight was over four hours delayed and I appreciated that when I got to the airport and found that out, I didn’t have to ask for anything but was immediately greeted with a food voucher. I lost an entire days worth of vacation in Germany, so well I do feel the British Airways should have done better and should’ve compensated me better, the fact that they immediately took steps to make the situation better was greatly appreciated. That level of customer service was beyond any I’ve received with an American-based airline. Also, the crew on the plane was fantastic and a great choice of movies. I flew American on the way home and was shocked at the lack of customer service and rudeness, I will happily fly British Airways again and again."
Cons: "A plane that was over four hours late costing me an entire day in Germany."
Pros: "The departures and arrivals were on time."
Pros: "Easy boarding, on-time departure, clean aircraft, friendly crew, decent food, free drinks."
Pros: "Despite having a delay in Denver, we were able to arrive on time. The crew was very friendly in greeting us as we boarded the plane"
Cons: "The boarding process was hampered by too many people putting too much carry on luggage in the overhead bins. Many put things in the overhead bins that could have been put under the seat. It didn’t seem like the crew was paying too much attention to this. In general the crew was pleasant, but there didn’t appear to be much sincerity in the pleasantries."
Pros: "Orderly boarding and disembarkation."
Cons: "This airline is one of the worst in Europe, for the simple reason of putting short-term profits ahead of decent treatment of the customer. My flight across the Atlantic was 4 hours late, and BA refused to put me on the next available to Prague, even though the lateness forced me to miss the BA flight I have been booked on. Their reason referred to a technicality in the booking procedure, but actually BA has put in place "policies" aimed at their financial advantage, over and above reasonable treatment of the customer. BA's refusal to rebook me cost me a lot of inconvenience (3 hours on the phone, for one thing) plus about $150 (I am taking another route to Prague); BA was then able to sell both my original seat and an extra seat on the next flight from Heathrow to Prague. I will never fly BA again in my life if I can help it."
Pros: "Food and hospitality and staff"
Cons: "We were late 20 minutes and sat in tarmac another 15 minutes. Didn´t allow us enough time to get train, take bus, we had over 500 people lined up for bus, get through TSA, they pulled my suitcase for inspection, but didn´t look at it for 15 minutes until i called a supervisor as my connecting flight was leaving, and in fact, it had left as TSA does this purposefully and maliciously as it apparently happens all the time per ÇBritish Airways who had to reticket us. We had to return to A section another 20 minutes to be reticketed and luckily got on another flight to <madrid. Terrible experience with TSA. Very rude, angry, abusive staff."
Cons: "Our flight from Denver to London was canceled at the last minute last night. The information from your email and the number given from you notifying me of the cancellation only gave British Airway to contact for redress. It took over an hour on the phone to get another flight which was 2 days later with now 2 days less of our vacation. Not to mention the loss of 2 hotel room payments. Kayak was of no help in this matter. Plus our flight reservation prohibited us from getting our flight on another flight the next day. If I had known that I never would have used Kayak. I am extremely unhappy with how this was handled. I expect to be reimbursed for our lost Hotel room costs and the costs associated with lost tours from you. Please contact me with how you will go about doing this."

Pros: "They were extremely accommodating."
Pros: "it was very clean on a board."
Cons: "even water for money"
Pros: "The seat was comfortable and featured the good headrests."
Cons: "Food was inedible so I left it. The sound on the movies was tinny making hearing difficult."
Pros: "Excellent food and service."
Pros: "The food was good and there was a great movie selection."
Cons: "I felt like a sardine. The seats are very tiny and there are so many of them."
Pros: "Treated coach like first class."
Pros: "Crew were exceptional in service friendliness and attentiveness."
Pros: "Entertainment, blanket"
Cons: "Not enough leg room, chocolate dessert"
Pros: "Unremarkable short hop that met basic expectations"
Cons: "Tight seats No snack or drink service"
Pros: "Seats were comfortable and staff was very attentive as well as respectful of us when I was sleeping"
Cons: "There was condensation leaking from the ceiling of the cabin. A crew member said this was normal, would have been nice to know this ahead of time to reassure me that for a first-time overseas flier that this is normal."
Pros: "food was good"
Cons: "IFE was not good the equipment is very old and selection is limited"
Pros: "Service, food, safety video"
Cons: "Delayed flight"
Pros: "Fligth attendants of British, Iberia provided excellent and friendly service. Some of London British Airways desk and gates officcers, gave me really poor service."
Cons: "My flight to London was pretty good,. Service was excellent.. But not my transfer to Madrid , I lost my conecttion. On London airport, I was sent back for the gate because I showed up early and they ask me to take care of the screen and wait for the gate #, when they showed the # , I went to the gate and was told my flight had left an hour ago and sent me back walking . I was wearing an orthopedic shoe, due to a toe fracture and i had to walk again all this long distance back to the terminal.!! British airway gave another flight and had to pay $279 dlls for a ticket to Madrid.2 hrs later. My flight was by Iberia and the service. was excelent. I wonder if the insurance , I bought initially will cover something of the $ 279 dlls ticket ? Fligth back to EUA was by AA and service was excellent"
Pros: "Crew was very nice."
Cons: "There are no air vents on these planes! 4 of the 4 international flights of 10+ hours each did not have individual air vents. The heat was unbearable. We were sweating the entire time. There are individual computers in each row taking up some of the seat B (middle seat) legroom. These blow hot air and heat up the plane even more. I have never been on a flight where there weren't vents and it is the #1 reason why I won't be flying British Airways again. The TV screens are also outdated. The selection is alright but the screens are blurry and have a grid burned in on them."
Pros: "Very courteous attendants"
Cons: "All good"
Pros: "Very little."
Cons: "Flight was delayed. The seats are uncomfortable and too small for even normal size male. Food was disgusting. Staff were very nice and helpful if asked. I think all the space and comfort were in buisiness and first class. Economy class is still paying for a ticket, make up most of the passengers and deserves better. Getting into a seat was like getting into a straight jacket."
Cons: "food was not good."
Pros: "Absolutely nothing"
Cons: "Flight was delayed by 2 hours. Then they bumped us out of the seats we had reserved. Made it just in time for our connection. Then they bumped us from that flight. Others were given generous compensation for that bump. However we were given nothing. At least they us we could rest in the BA lounge because I am elderly and disabled and we would have a 9 hour wait. Got to the lounge and we were not listed in the system. So we were denied entrance. We will have have spent 2 nights on a plane and 36 hours instead of one night and 16 hours. Rotten way to depend your 50th anniversary."
Pros: "not much"
Cons: "5.5 hours delay"
Pros: "Just so comfortable and friendly. I'll fly them again next time!"
Pros: "The Chief Purser came over to apologize. At the end of the flight, the Captain came to me to apologize on behalf of the airline. (Too little, way too late.)"
Cons: "I am handicapped and the jetway was broken. British Airways took a bad situation and made it worse! Obviously they had no contingency plans and the gate agents just wan't to avoid any responsibility and started blaming the poor man who had been wheeling me all over the airport. ONLY BRITISH AIRWAYS WAS AT FAULT FOR THIS. Eventually they put me on a lift several gates away and then loaded me onto the platform lift of one of those catering trucks that deliver food to the planes and drove me to my plane. The plane door was shut and they had to bang on the door to have them open it and let me board. As a result, I personally delayed the flight (officially) 28 minutes; in reality about 40 minutes. This was one of the most embarrassing and humiliating experiences of my life; to be loaded on a plane like freight!! Is this how British Airways operates??"
Cons: "Old plane, flight attendants boardering in rude, very poor food (!), de-plane via steps to the tarmac and at least 7 coaches at Heathrow (an aged 747, so it took nearly an hour!)"
Pros: "It was short"
Cons: "Lost luggage - no one cared despite it clearly being lost at check in going down a broken bag shute. Plane was late. BA is losing their upmarket appeal trying to compete with cheaper airlines."
Pros: "Everyone was awesome"
Cons: "The staff was awesome"
Pros: "The food was elevated and we were fed twice on our 9 hour flight! The beverage service was also provided often with a good assortment. I loved that there were new release movies available for free. The staff was friendly and available. If I were to do another long flight like that, I would seek out British Airways."
Pros: "For economy class it was good seats (bulkhead), the crew were nice, and the food was good."
Cons: "The tiny screens for movies were awful. Worst of all, the horribly loud voices that nearly break eardrums when the crew comes on during the flight was both painful and annoying."
Pros: "The flight was not very full, so we could spread out. Normally I really like British Airways, but the lack of AC was difficult."
Cons: "The air conditioning did not work and it was very warm, 77 degrees at least, the whole flight. It made it very uncomfortable. They said something was broken."
Pros: "Quick flight with no issues"
Cons: "Little cramped."
Pros: "Easy and quick boarding. Dinner tasty, but it is hard to cut a fillet steak without hitting the next passenger in the elbow"
Cons: "Only one check-in agent running all desks including bag drop - long wait. 19 year-old 747 had narrow seats in premium economy, uncomfortable and too much body contact with adjacent passengers. Outbound to SFO in an Airbus 380 had sparkling wine pre-take off, hot towels twice, this DEN-LHR flight only had juice or water on offer (crew said "don't serve that on this route") no hot towels, crew's objective seemed to be get around cabin in one go and leave Pax to it Breakfast was abysmal, soft-pretzel roll, no juice or water served, just indifferent coffee"
Pros: "Usual fantastic standard of service"
Cons: "Shabby baggage reclaim service at LHR with staff ignoring priority baggage"
Pros: "It all went smoothly and was on time"
Pros: "ALL the cabin crew were excellent! Polite and helpful and cared for the comfort of all their passengers."
Pros: "When the flight was delayed and I missed my connection, the crew had a new ticket for me by the time we landed."
Pros: "On time with good adult beverages. Had good movie selection as well."
Pros: "boarding was quick"
Cons: "seats werent that good for sleeping but I managed"
The flight attendants were knowledgeable and informative. Our incoming flight was delayed due to snow and ice. Once we were aboard the flight from Denver to Detroit, the pilot informed us that we needed to go to de-icing prior to lift off. He led us to believe that it would only delay our trip by 10-15 minutes. We sat on tarmac for one hour prior to lift off. I definitely appreciate the safety process of de-icing but I wish the pilot had given a more realistic estimate of time of departure.
Cons: "Food had little taste. Movies were not that current and selection was sparse"
Cons: "More clearly written policy about baggage allowance"
Pros: "How I was treated How I felt was wonderful."
Pros: "Cabin crew were terrific!"
Cons: "The unfortunate delay of our flight. And the entertainment systems seems to be getting old. What I mean is that it is by todays standard very very slow to switch between menus etc. And in some cases did not display all the menu content."
Pros: "very nice crew"
Cons: "plane was too small and there was 1.5 hour delay departing"
Pros: "The soda did not taste bad."
Cons: "Flight Delayed by 2 days, only offered hotel voucher for one day, despite being told we would get vouchers for 2 days. Customer service made no attempts to make the situation right. Employees at the airport did not know what they were doing, gave lots of misinformation. Upon landing, we were refused our bags despite being stranded for multiple days. Terrible experience. I urge you to stay away."
Pros: "The passengers, the Brussels airport retail area, 1 of the flight attendants who was polite and welcoming, and the entertainment selections. Finally being connected to Swiss staff."
Cons: "The crew was not very welcoming and was borderline rude when I asked any sort of question such as why I was not allowed to wear my headphones prior to take off. I was patient in not wearing them, but could not relaxing into the trip for the 40+ minutes we remained on the ground mostly not moving. I was tired when boarding and fumbled with my documents and was very curtly told to just hand them over. Another time I accidentally mistook headphones the stewardess was handing out for something else. I took a pair and then immediately gave them back with an apology that I didn't realise what they were, but thanked her anyway. This was met with a scowl and a bit of opposition. There was one stewardess that was very nice and accommodating out of the entire crew. On top of this the toilet seat on the plane was broken, so it fell on you when you were trying to go to the bathroom, and the soap dispenser was broken. I didn't dare mention these things to the flight crew though. The plane was late taking off from Montreal, and so was late landing in Brussels. No effort was made to provide connections assistance, or provide directions on where to go to rebook our missed connections. I and all others traveling to Zurich spent the entire morning trying to find anyone from Air Canada to help us rebook our flights. We literally were going from desk to desk between two terminals, and consulting each other as we went to limit the amount of leg work we all had to do. We all had to finally leave the terminal area and go to Swissport and stand in a long slow line. By that time any afternoon flight was already overbooked. So I and a group of other passengers were booked for an evening flight which forced me to book a hotel in Zurich because I couldn't get to where I needed to be that evening. After being rebook, I still tried to get on an earlier flight by going directly to the gate. It was confirmed that there was some extra space available, but they would not switch me to the earlier flight because I had a checked bag that I could not separate me from. Ultimately my bag was lost which made me have to stay awake and in the Zurich airport even longer after I finally arrived going from one lost baggage representative to another, and then waiting in another line to finally fill out paperwork because my bag had never been scanned in Brussels. The Zurich representatives were very polite, helpful, and efficient compared to anyone I encountered in Montreal, or Brussels. I was without my bag for 3.5 days of what was supposed to be a 10 day trip. My trip was reduced to 9 days because I spent an entire day in the Brussels airport and then had to spend the night in Zurich. I arrived in Zurich on Saturday night, and received my bag on Tuesday afternoon. All in all it was not a good experience until I got to Switzerland."
Cons: "The flight got cancelled way in advance and nobody neither airlines nor webjet.com informed us about it. Also, nobody could replace our tickets for the next day either. So our flight didn't happen and we had to drive to Washington DC to find a flight from there. So we will never buy any tickets from Kayak or Webjet.com! Extremely poor service"
Pros: "We got there without crashing."
Cons: "Checking in and luggage drop off was chaos. One useless staff person failed to tell people where to line up to drop bags off until the end. She just stood there and if you asked a question she gave you the wrong answer. In Newerk we had to wait 2 hours for our bags. The man st the AC office had no idea why the bags were not coming and could not get someone to tell him and emotionally dithered and then fell apart. I will avoid travelling on AC again if I can. Worst flight ever. They did not have enough food on board either. At least the pilots were competent."
Pros: "Not much. Crew was good but that is about it."
Cons: "Tight spaces packed in like sardines. FAA seriously needs to look at how these airlines pack us into these seats. Can barely sit in the set, no room to stretch legs, tray table hits my stomach, and I don't even have a big belly. When the guy in front reclines, cannot even get out of my seat. Chaotic boarding process without any order or instructions or announcements, poor food and entertainment."
Pros: "The full experience"
Pros: "Good boarding.Easy check in."
Cons: "Food! Not appealing. Did not eat more than a few bites."
Pros: "1 stewardess was great"
Cons: "Flights were delayed. Did not check boarding passes which was scary."
Pros: "They did a good job and I enjoyed their touch screen entertainment on the flight. I enjoyed the wine on the flight over and back. I will fly Air Canada again"
Cons: "Nothing, they did a good job"
Pros: "The end of the trip and delivery of luggage 24 hours after arriving in Vienna"
Cons: "Old and partly broken plane, horrible food. 2 officials to immigrate hundreds of people at Brussels. Breakdown of luggage system in Brussels. No luggage at arrival in Vienna."
Pros: "The flight crew were helpful and friendly"
Cons: "I was forced to miss my second flight because the first airplane malfunctioned"
Cons: "Rather than notify the passengers that our flight would be delayed prior to our arrival at the airport, we waited at the gate for several hours."
Cons: "Our direct flight to Montreal was canceled due to mechanical issues. The rebooking process was discombobulating and we ended up arriving at our destination after the rerouting that was stressful and ensured that we lost a whole day of our vacation time. Our flight back the entertainment system in our seats did not function."
Pros: "put us up in decent hotels gave food vouchers the crew didn't do anything to make it horrible Large selection of movies/tv on board comfiest seats out of all the major airlines I've flown"
Cons: "The flight kept getting delayed bc of mechanical problems, and then eventually cancelled. They rebooked everyone on new flights, but it took an extra stop in Toronto before getting us to Montreal. Once it was rebooked for the morning, it took off a little late. Plus the pretzels they gave us were stale. This was the first of two flights I took this trip that had mechanical issues, so they obviously need to fix their planes better or get new ones, because two Air Canada flights in one day that have mechanical problems leaves me worried that the planes aren't in optimal condition. It took me over 24 hours to get from Tucson, AZ to Montreal, Canada when normal travel takes less than 8 hours including layovers."
Pros: "Dinner was ok, Breakfast and coffee were horrrible"
Cons: "Very rude staff, would not do anything I asked and responded with attitude"
Pros: "I had an aisle seat"
Cons: "The plane sat on the runway in Denver for over an hour because they couldn't figure out their furling situation. Many people nearly missed connections because of this. The crew never let us get up to go to the bathroom on an international flight because of some small turbulence."
Pros: "Nothing! Unpleasant unhelpful crew at gate, no better onboard, absolutely moist cramped seating ever! Disorganized and late- boarding, departing, waited to disembark at arrival, 25 min before first bag off baggage......dreadful no one cares"
Cons: "Thank you for choosing Air Canada- smiles and goodbyes- where's all that Before you leave? They treat you like problem cattle to be dealt with, you're anonymous and valueless until you leave then they look at you and thank you?! Missing sincerity And service!"
Pros: "Onboard attendants were pleasant"
Cons: "No apology for lateness, flight boarded late, took off 40 min late, arrived 35 minutes late but we sat at gate waiting for someone to open it ?!, then another 15 min before bags started to unload Ridiculous but indicative of airlines You are not their valued guest or even their customer, you are a problem that needs to be solved and are consequently met with preloaded annoyance and a readiness to dismiss, placate at the best of times but definitely not please, impress, sympathize or satisfy. There is no evidence that it's even in their lexicon- not a part of their recruitment or selection process or training, ever! They're main focus and only positivity is saved for themselves. There may be a long line of concerned and anxious travelers but their priority is getting coffees for the battle ahead! They break their focused indifference only for each other and enthusiastically leave their post to satisfy each other's needs and attention. This has got to change! Why do we put up with such awful service for which we are the paying customer? Why are we, their customers, not valued? This airline makes record profits, provides less, charges for everything and increasingly delivers bad service, sometimes offensively bad! It doesn't cost more to hire a customer centric pleasant person, or incorporate guest experience into training or at the very least be friendly and smile! What if an airline just did that?! They'd differentiate themselves and develop a positive customer centered culture. Don't we deserve that, at the very least?!"
Cons: "Crew wasn't helpful and attentive, boarding staff in Toronto were blatantly rude to me, I watched as my luggage got handled aggressively, the plane was dirty with old food crumbs and such, my flight to Windsor got cancelled and accomadations were not met sufficiently."
Pros: "Flight was on time. Personal entertainment is very good and crew was great."
Cons: "Boarding is always a bit chaotic with the carry on bags. I am tall, so economy seats are always uncomfortable."
Cons: "The tv in business class weren't really working... stopping the movies by it self and I had to always restart them until I gave up on watching a movie!"
Pros: "The flight was perfect. Stress free. I will definitely get it again."
Pros: "Alles goed"
Pros: "I like that Air Canada provides entertainment and its flight attendants are really good."
Cons: "I rarely fly these partner airlines without experiencing major delays, and the delays are always announced after I have cleared security, forcing me to spend hours at the airport. The claims of "weather" are specious: they don't fly enough planes and they don't properly maintain the planes they do fly."
Pros: "Online booking,boardong pass, alerts"
Cons: "I haven't been on a plane with no tvs in more than 10 years. The least you could do is let people know prior to boarding. Like when you purchase the tickets or 24hours before!"
Pros: "The first leg of the trip was great from Montreal to Toronto on wide body plane."
Cons: "The airport in Toronto where they crammed about 10 gates together in a small area with no air conditioning (it seemed). Also flight was delayed about an hour so had to wait in horrible conditions with no seats for a long time."
Pros: "Crew was nice"
Cons: "Couldn't use in flight entertainment, only half a soda was given"
Cons: "Customer service flight rebooking"
Pros: "Free movies."
Cons: "Delays at the gate going and coming back"
Cons: "No monitoring of travel route"
Pros: "An Air Canada rep over the phone"
Cons: "Gate agent, zero entertainment (and no warning that we should download an app inside airport), poor food, flight attendant wouldn't bring coffee to us (made us go to the back)"
Pros: "Upgrade to premium economy with more legroom. Free movies. Good movie selection. Free checked luggage!"
Cons: "Check-in process at Denver counter rather slow. Gate information at Denver very confusing due to changes and lateness in displaying/announcing information."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Food , uncomfortable ,"
Pros: "I enjoyed the entertainment option."
Cons: "Wish there were more choices for new movies."
Cons: "i booked a flight through kayak going from denver to milan. i showed up at the airport in denver to fly out yeserday only to find out that i was going to frankfurt germany. i am now in munich germany and never made it to milan. i was one of many people i met on the flight that also booked with air canada thinking they were headed to milan. air canada kept trying to put the blame off to my booking company. i don't know who to be ticked off at. please advise."
Pros: "Great crew. Nice airline."
Cons: "Both flights were over 30 minutes late. Otherwise they were just fine."
Pros: "very nice people, food ok"
Cons: "Bad organization at Montreal for special passengers, plus technical pb => flight delayed 45mn"
Pros: "Better plane than previous"
Cons: "Had to be rerouted to Calgary because I missed my connection"
Pros: "One hour late due to waiting transit passengers thought US custom. But catch up in arrival on time in SFO"
Cons: "Food - because I was in the last section, they ran out of chicken. And only offer paste with Cheese. I can't take cheese and daily product. It iwas a hungry trip"
Pros: "Minimal leg room, dirty plane, food worse than frozen dinner. Fed once plus small snack on a ten hour flight. In flight entertainment would have been okay had we been told to download the app to watch it in advance (could not download on plane as no wifi). They ran out of ipads to rent with the app installed so was only able to view minimal programming."
