Pros: "Everything was amazing"
Cons: "Nothing really."

Cons: "Made us check our carry ons and there was plenty of space in the cabin overhead comoartments"

Cons: "The seat was squeaking all the time"

Pros: "The crew on both legs of our trip were nice and accommodating."

Pros: "Nobody was amazing. First Class Crew didn’t really care and there were only 6 of us up there."
Cons: "I was offered one during. They didn’t have spicy Bloody Mary mix. Tired to pass off a drink with plain tomato juice which was horrible. When my wife sent it back they didn’t offer her anything else."

Pros: "Connecting flight attendant was extremely helpful"
Cons: "Delayed due to weather this missed the first connection then bumped from first class by a rude gate agent in Atlanta"

Pros: "Crew"

Pros: "Friendly crew. Landed early."

Pros: "good flight, inflight menu and movie library"
Cons: "rude bag drop off kiosk"

Pros: "Flight was on time, smooth take-off and landing, and gluten-free meal available (ordered before through Delta.com). Alcohol was available at each drink service."
Cons: "No gluten-free snacks, lack of gluten-free awareness by crew, and gluten-free meal had an apple instead of the (gluten-free) ice cream bar the other meals included for the dessert."

Cons: "Better accommodation for handicap passengers."

Cons: "We sat for an hour on the tarmac with the plane at about 80-85 degrees and everyone sweating. Once we took off the flight attendants kept turning the cabin lights on and off and serving dinner (on an overnight flight is that really necessary?!) and waking us up. Also plane was old and uncomfortable."

Pros: "Excellent crew!"
Cons: "Need better snacks."

Pros: "Departed on time. Very courteous crew."
Cons: "Nothing."

Pros: "Short and easy"

Pros: "Very nice stewardess on this plane. Seating was excellent."
Cons: "Crew was not apologetic after we missed connecting flight due to technical difficulties with their plane. I was re-routed to Barcelona and then a very budgetary Airlines to Athens which was ridiculously tight again with seating and flight was almost an hour late. Luggage didn't come until following day. And to top it off, I thought I would be flying with KLM on both legs!"

Cons: "We had to wait at the customs for nearly 1.5hrs, then pick up our luggage, then check in again!!! We were running and got on the plane 10 mins before the departure. Super stressful!!"

Pros: "Super friendly flight crew."

Pros: "Crew was wonderful and made me feel very comfortable."

Pros: "I like the snacks they are not giving out on the flights. It seems that Delta is trying to make the flying experience nicer instead of more tedious and uncomfortable like many other airlines, which is appreciated."
Cons: "The flights were both operated by Delta but booked through WestJet, and the flights themselves were fine. The booking was through WestJet (found the flight on kayak which kicked me over to West Jet's site) and check in was a pain. Their code did not work for their site or Delta's, I had to FB message them both leaving and returning to ask for the correct one, and the first request took them hours to answer. I'll just book Delta next time and save myself the trouble."

Pros: "Excelent service"

Pros: "Quiet, friendly, fast and efficient. What you'd want for a flight at 6am"

Pros: "It all went very well. Arrived 20 minutes ahead of time. Wifi movies were great. Stewardesses were very efficient."

Pros: "The stewards and flight was overall fine. In fact I found the stewards to Atlanta from West Palm very accommodating."
Cons: "I have reservation on booking Comfort plus next time I fly though. There appeared to be no difference in the seating or service as economy. A lesson learn I guess. I will atillflyDelta but stick to economy. I saw no perks"

Pros: "Excellent job"
Cons: "N/a"

Pros: "The stewardess was extremely polite, though the pilot was less chatty (probably due to lack of turbulence during the flight). Decided to risk drinking the coffee again, and was pleasantly surprised that it actually tasted good."

Pros: "The crew was fantastic. I generally love flying Delta and find their crew to always be very professional and kind."
Cons: "As this was a smaller, regional jet, there weren't a lot of amenities. But that's fine, it's only a 40-minute flight!"

Pros: "Delta is the best--I sat in a comfy seat (middle seat at that) and watched 3 movies during my flight. Couldn't be better!"

Pros: "So many movies to watch. Keep it up!"
Cons: "The food was too sweet and salty."

Pros: "The staff was so friendly, and funny!! Loved the movies offered and snack choices. Updated aircraft"

Pros: "Staff were awesome. Give them a raise."
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "I was thankful for the early boarding with a lap infant and was very pleased with the options for entertainment on the TV monitor."
Cons: "The main issue I had was that we sat in row 34 and the noise from the engines often made it difficult to hear announcements, even with headphones in. Look into possibly zoning the audio and turning it up a click or two for rows behind the engines."

Cons: "Plane was sat broken at gate and needed part to be flown in. 150 minutes delayed. Not acceptable."

Pros: "They forgot the CC reader so drinks were free. The free GoGo media is cool."
Cons: "Flight was cancelled and rescheduled 3 times. Delayed. Tiny plane = uncomfortable and turbulent."

Pros: "The courtesy of the staff and the seats in the "delta comfort" section."
Cons: "Too many interruptions. i'm not sure if there is a way but there should be a way to only serve only those who are requesting service."

Cons: "Was never able to get on flight. The plane lost a windshield wiper and didn't have any spare parts."

Cons: "See above description"

Pros: "On time Clean airplane Smooth ride Friendly staff"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "smooth flight"
Cons: "I'm not sure if this staff is exhausted or just over there job, but they cow towed to a woman who made major complaints about the air conditioning and even gave her points to help her deal with the temperature. Strange. They were only gold stays and I'm only Platinum and didn't complain once. Oh well, that's delta, we all deal with their silence when we post anything that is unfair."

Pros: "everthing went well"

Pros: "Movies- pro staff"

Pros: "Good service once I finally got on a plane."
Cons: "The alternative routing after my missed connection was not good and would have resulted in a very long travel day on a comparatively ill-equipped aircraft. So I stayed in Amsterdam on my own dime to take the same direct flight one day later."

Pros: "Friendliness of omboard crew"
Cons: "Flight was more than 2 hours late"

Pros: "The check in personnel was fantastic - very helpful and friendly with a very relevant story that made me feel more relaxed. Our not so good seats were somewhat compensated by the plane staff that gave us each a full beverage can, extra pretzels, and some cookies."
Cons: "Our seats that we'd picked out seemed to get changed when we checked in and we got out in the last row, which had no window, and smelled strongly of bathroom cleaner."

Pros: "The fact that the flight was direct. Entertainment options. Availability of USB and power outlets once you upgraded to priority seating."
Cons: "Flight was delayed as a result of volunteers getting off the plane due to overbooking. Their luggage had to be found and unloaded. Abusive and rude ground and security staff. On board staff was curt and was just going through the motions. Priority Seating seats were flimsy and extremely uncomfortable for a 10hr flight, even using the front seat pocket felt like you being kicked in the back. Seats reclined only 3 inches. Quality of food was pathetic. Serving trays were so small that is was impractical to eat out of them as food served barely fit in them. Toilets and sinks were clogged and dirty 1.5hrs into the flight. In short, it felt like you were traveling on a cheap bus."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Delay after delay, then missed connection."

Pros: "The friendliness and helpfulness of flight attendants was outstanding"

"Thanks Lufthansa"

Pros: "Safety of aircraft"
Cons: "Parents called as soon as the delayed flight caused the young teen to miss her flight, Lufthansa operator verifies only by phone that young teen had a seat in the next flight, UNTRUE! She was ignored at counter, mr. M. Meindle told her to step aside and it was not “worth arguing”! The people she sought direction from, are the ones that left her confused and ignored. Shame on them"

Pros: "Good crew."
Cons: "More comfortable seating."

Pros: "Missed flights due to driver not turned up at Bellano yesterday"
Cons: "We have a new flights"

Pros: "Comfortable seating, good food served by this airline"
Cons: "The woman seated next to me had the worst body odor ever and this was a 10 hour flight-nearly brought me to hurl. She was the mother of s flight attendant as well, and was constantly brought amenities from the first class cabin. Really not appropriate for the rest of us in premium economy"

Cons: "The multiple gate changes & technical delay caused us to miss our connection to Boston"

Cons: "Not much legroom and no tv’s on a 10-hour flight"

Pros: "Great crew"
Cons: "Uncomfortable seating"

Pros: "Friendly crew, tried their best to accommodate"
Cons: "Boarding was delayed and once in the plane more delay followed. Food was pasta (again!) while entertainment was non-existent. Flight is long enough to show at least a route map."

Pros: "Crew was good overall"
Cons: "Food was overheated and bland in taste. No on board entertainement"

Pros: "The crew is always pleasant and friendly. The in-flight entertainment is great and the food is good too."
Cons: "The Lufthansa rep at the Rome airport did not try to accommodate me when I asked to change my flight. My daughter was flying on a later flight and in order to travel together I asked if there was any way one of us could switch. Before even looking she said NO, there is no way. I know that it can be"

Cons: "Never happened,missed flight"

Pros: "Food was good & they served a full meal!"
Cons: "Crew appeared annoyed with everyone. No entertainment provided."

Pros: "Crew was super attentative."
Cons: "Nothing, they tried hard to make sure everyone felt they were available to take care of what they needed and when they needed."

Pros: "I have never been treated so poorly by counter people in my life!"
Cons: "After 2 hour delay, the flight was cancelled. NO ONE helped to find another flight. After waiting in line for 2 hours, the ticket agent handed me a card and said I had to call the 800 number. The person on the phone said I had to talk to ticket agent to go standby on a flight to Munich and the ticket agent told me I had to call. I was caught in a loop and no one helped. Then when it became apparent I wasn't getting out that night I was informed that there were no hotel vouchers and I would have to find my own hotel! After searching for an hour for a hotel (all were sold out in Boston) I called a friend who lives outside of Boston. No one gave me a taxi voucher because it was not to a hotel. LUFTHANSA customer service is the WORST!!!!!!!!"

Cons: "My luggage did not arrive on the flight from Frankfort to Athens. The Lost Luggage staff was very helpful, but the process took a long, long time. Then when my luggage arrived the next morning, no one was staffing the Gold kiosk, so it took another hour and a half to get my luggage. (We had received an email saying that the luggage would be available at 7:30; no one was there to provide it to us)"

Pros: "The engagement of the crew. The coffee and cake. The attendant offered to help me with my bag to the door of the aircraft. The same attendant remembered to give me coffee later and provided the stir stick just as I was able ask for one. I felt cared for."
Cons: "They ran out of the protein meal selections.e.g. Chicken I think. Pasta with sauce and one small cube of cheese with a little salad does not qualify as a balanced mealThe attendant tried to make up for it by giving me more cheese blocks."

Pros: "As a United 1K member and Star Alliance Gold member, I expected a little better treatment than being charged a premium to sit with my family in a 'rock bottom' basic seat."
Cons: "I was surprised to have to pay more for a basic seat. I really thought I had paid enough already. I could not get boarding pass tickets for the last leg of our fight. I was told that Lufthansa''s system does not communicate with United Airline System. I found this to be untrue because I have had code share flights between United and Luftansa for 20 years. At Munich I was told that they could not get me tickets either and said that there may be a security issue with me. Once I heard this I walked away."

Pros: "The crew was really good. The food was much better than my cross the Atlantic flight. There wasn’t any entertainment so I am not sure how to rate it."
Cons: "Frankfurt airport is not very good. Why does a passenger who has cleared security in the US have to do it again in Frankfurt? It is an unnecessary requirement that causes some passengers to miss their connecting flight. I will give them a pass on clearing immigration But going thru security....no."

Pros: "Polite crew"
Cons: "1 hour delay again"

Cons: "Had to run thru airport to catch plane, thn long wait to board."

Cons: "Air was stuffy."

Cons: "The forward economy cabin was too cold. When the passenger in front of me had his seatback all the way back, I could not get out of my seat, lean forward, nor see the entertainment screen or eat easily."

Cons: "Still in Munich."

Pros: "They even filled my water bottle a couple of times in addition to numerous glasses at my seat."

Pros: "Equipment, crew"
Cons: "The boarding of the plane was disorganized."

Cons: "seating is very cramped when the plane is full"

Pros: "NEVER AGAIN"

Pros: "A male flight attendance made me feel uncomfortable. I sat in empty sit with number 3 instead of 4 and he asked me to check my number on my boarding pass. WIth an extremely directive and dictating tone in his voice he told me YOU SHOULD GO AND SIT to what your ticket says. It is VERY important to be sited, although the seats are available you should be sited where your boarding pass directs you to be."
Cons: "I realized that some people of their crew are extremely insane! I have never had an issue like this, with DELTA or AIR FRANCE, or KLM, or NORWEGIAN, or SAS If it was only one persona that I had to deal with, which it was on my flight from NY to Munich I would say , it was coincidence . One person is not a statistical point and accuse the whole Company. But this was repeated on my second flight from Munich to Athens. Then I said, this is not coincidence, it is a pattern that is repeated and not professional . NEVER AGAIN WITH LUFTHANSA is my decision and my recommendation."

Cons: "Wheelchair assistance did not arrive at gate."

Cons: "They don’t have order while boarding No space for the carry on- they didn’t ask to check them for free."

Cons: "All flights in Frankfurt boarded via jet bridge. Flight to Greece boarded via a bus. Freezing weather in Frankfurt. Are Germans prejudiced to Greek passengers?"

Pros: "The crew was more helpful than the transatlantic flight."
Cons: "My seat. It was right behind the first class and as the crew rushed to serve them, they threw the separating curtain at my face as I was sitting on the corridor. It was so frequent I couldn't sleep and the passanger did the same."

Cons: "Missed my connection due to airline delay and was put on a flight 12 hours later"

Pros: "On all my flights everything was on time and ready to go. Crew was super helpful and friendly. Ready great service and constant visual of crew for us if we needed them. Was not expecting to be fed sooo much on my flights which was awesome! Seats were comfortable, pillow and blanket were a nice accommodation as well! The entertainment was awesome - made 8 hours quickly disappear! Will definitely fly with Lufthansa again when I go overseas!"

Pros: "Boarding was fast"
Cons: "I had to pay extra because I didn't know that Lufthansa only allows one piece of luggage for international passengers, unlike most of their competition. Cost me $375 extra!!!"

Pros: "Seats on PE were comfortable, on time, clean flight."
Cons: "The worst crew possible, absolutely no concept of customer service, Last flight on lufthansa....so no more complaints Customers needs training on how to use the LOO."

Pros: "Flight attendants we good"
Cons: "Business class seats were just regular seats without a 3rd person. Legroom bad and seats narrow. Not good value b"

Cons: "Short flight so no entertainment provided or needed."

Pros: "This is the first time I actually enjoyed a meal on a flight. It was ravioli in tomato sauce, just perfect! Superfriendly cabin crew"

Pros: "Good was yummy and the setwardess were super friendly. Staff was plentiful and the plan was very modern and high tech. Also had a layover in Munich airport and it was amazing. Very high tech, I took advantage of the napcaps and shower facilities. Also the restaurants were on par with great red win."
Cons: "The flight was 11 hours.... can you make that a little quicker next time, I mean come on it's 2017...."

Pros: "Crew was great and helpful. Flight was half empty so it was comfortable."
Cons: "The plane was not very clean."

Cons: "Vegetarian meal choice not offered"

Pros: "Comortable seats, great service, combined with good food and entertainment made for an enjoyable flight"
Cons: "The boarding process was poorly executed"

Cons: "A man next to me took a picture of me when he thought I was asleep."

Cons: "None"

Pros: "Nothing!!!!!!"
Cons: "What was there to like?"

Pros: "All the staff was very friendly and helpful."
Cons: "Terrible leg room."

Pros: "Comfortable seats."
Cons: "Boarding was like a "free-for-all", the gate agents exerted NO control at all. The departure was delayed about 15 minutes (no big thing" but then we sat in our seats for an additional 45-50 minutes for a total of more than an hour!. This after an 11+ hour first leg."

Pros: "see above"
Cons: "see above"

"They canceled our flights that went on anyway."

Pros: "Yes, Very good"

Pros: "The crew was very kind"

Cons: "Information on arrival time was not correct"

Pros: "The crew was informative"

Pros: "Very professional"
Cons: "Lost luggage"

Pros: "Crew was friendly"

Cons: "Can’t think of anything."

Cons: "The plane was very hot"

Pros: "Crew was fantastic."
Cons: "This was the most narrow airplane seat I’ve ever experienced. So uncomfortable."

Pros: "Like the overall KLM experience"
Cons: "Food could have had better quality and the stewardess served it all at once versus in the various courses."

Pros: "The crew was amazing and the food was great."
Cons: "Something did not go right with our booking so it took some work for the airline to get it figured out for us. Thankfully we had left plenty of time. But that was an unexpected stress."

Pros: "All good"

Pros: "The crew!!"

Cons: "Turn the lights on early making it hard to sleep"

Pros: "The constant smile conferred by flight attendants through the entire flight."
Cons: "The boarding was a bit disorderly. Lanes for zones 3 and 4 were not clearly indicated."

Cons: "Trouble checking in regarding a visa issue?.. no other trouble at the other airports.."

Cons: "Poor food, flight attend and finally baggage missing. Overall experience is extremely bad."

Pros: "Light snack and complementary wine"

Pros: "Very pleasant, professional crew"
Cons: "Very slow check in. Mainly because other passengers obviously don't read instructions re: weight/contents of cabin bags etc. Would be helpful if there was additional staff to deal with them away from check in desk. This would mean that others did not have to queue for 25 minutes because the check in girls also had to deal with them"

Pros: "Was happy to pay extra 45.5 pounds for laugages which was hidden"
Cons: "Not happy to pay extra money for my case"

Pros: "Everything was clean and well organized."
Cons: "The flight was delayed 1 1/2 hours."

Pros: "Easy flight; loved the crew and their friendly customer service. Great food, kept everyone hydrated and fed."
Cons: "The movie options, as well as music and TV options were limited. There were no electrical outlets."

Pros: "Great food"
Cons: "I paid a top price for my ticket and expect the advertised amenities to work. Upgrade or replacement for entertainment system."

Pros: "Decent meal (warm Pasta all'arrabbiata), nice little muffin for dessert and standard drinks (coffee & tea were a bonus, as they didn't serve any on a similar flight, from Barcelona to Amsterdam), friendly cabin crew."
Cons: "Poor timing - no reason for a 40 minute delay at take off (plane was fully boarded in time) Old aircraft, shabby, dirty and cramped seats. Coming from my connecting flight from Barcelona, I could clearly tell the different in the quality (and cleanliness) of the aircrafts."

Pros: "Fast boarding"
Cons: "The entertainment system wasn’t working for the whole 10 hour flight."

Pros: "Smooth boarding, clean seats/plane, nice small aircraft (2 rows x 2 seats each), surprisingly spacious (more legroom than expected - and I’m 6’2”)."
Cons: "About 1h30min delay without an explanation. All other planes in the terminal seemed to take off on time without a problem, without exception (aside from this flight, of course)."

Pros: "Nice flight, nice crew, and a nice experience."

Pros: "Food was just fine, movie selection very good"
Cons: "Uncomfortable seat cushions, lights were truned on too early (1.5 hours before flight landed)"

Pros: "The aircraft was clean"
Cons: "The food was terrible, wifi was extremely expensive (Delta had free messaging over their wifi)"

Pros: "Just great crew."
Cons: "Not comfortable at all and will not book KLM again."

Pros: "Excellent experience with the cabin crew."
Cons: "Seats on the 777 were too narrow. This 777 had a 3-4-3 seating arraignment, it would have been better with a 3-3-3, similar to a 787 configuration. With the current layout, even with an aisle seat, I was sitting in the aisle. And I am not a large person! The flight was full, so use the 787 and two daily non-stops. For a twelve hour flight, the food was only Okay, could have been better and with a better selection. Meal timing was poor."

Cons: "una valija se perdió. Eso desató el descontrol que tiene KLM para seguir el equipaje. No hay como hacer tracking. No hay un teléfono a donde hablar, la web está desactualizada y con información equivocada. Direccionan a usar canales de twitter y facebook que no responden. Primer experiencia en KLM y no pienso nunca más usar esta aerolínea. Llevar el equipaje o resolver un problema sobre valijas es de lo más básico de una aerolínea y no lo hacen."

Pros: "Cabin crew very pleasant"
Cons: "Lost our bags, little sympathy from staff"

Pros: "newer plane, good staff"
Cons: "need better and more food options, more often"

Pros: "Priority boarding was appreciated and the flights were on time. Service was fine. Schipol was good."

Pros: "The very dirty plane was cleaned at Dar-es-salaam and became less dirty. The pilot kept us updated periodically through the flight. The flight attendants were very pleasant."
Cons: "The plane was very dirty when we landed in Dar-es-salaam. The plane did get cleaned a little bit in Dar-es-salaam however I was still missing a pillow and blanket which I had to actively seek out. Seating was not very comfortable as there was a box attached to the leg of the seat in front of me, making it necessary to keep my feet at an uncomfortable angle through the long flight. I did not enjoy the food."

Pros: "Arriving more or less on time"
Cons: "Crew is awful. Disrespectful desinterested in customers find themselves very important. No service mentality whatsoever. No respectful airline would hire such arrogant self centered personalities in a service role"

Pros: "Timing & efficiency. Good food though only a sandwich."
Cons: "Nothing. Could say there was no entertainment but I didn't want entertainment on such a short flight"

Pros: "Catering is ok"
Cons: "Seats comfort really old school"

Cons: "KLM had bumped us to a later flight for no reason and again we had to call with a long wait to get our original connection restored, However, we did not get boarding passes during checking in Europe and thus had to go outside security in Detroit to the main check-in gate and wait 30 minutes to get the error resolved. Then it was back thorough security and a rush to the gate to get there in time to board. Lost our original seat assignment and wound up in the last row at the tail of the plane. Extremely poor coordination between KLM and Delta who operated the flight."

Pros: "Night flight so no entertainment allowed sleeping"
Cons: "Kosher food could be improved"

Pros: "Short, comfortable flight. Nothing special. Got us where we needed to be without incident."
Cons: "Nothing. This is filler text to meet the min. characters."

"Flight from Chicago to Los Angeles was terrible On my ticket said economy plus which that is what I paid for but didn’t get a seat As economy plus"

Pros: "Flight was fine...."
Cons: "....but departure wa delayed over an hour"

Pros: "The SAS flight was fine. My dissatisfaction was with the company that booked my ticket which I found through a Kayak search. When booking, there was no information about luggage and I ended up paying for it at the airport. This should clearly be declared in the online booking process."

Pros: "A lot of seating space. very comfortable."
Cons: "You have to pay for wifi."

Pros: "The attendants were constantly providing services to the passengers."

Cons: "We paid for meals that were NOT delivered"

Pros: "Quick"
Cons: "Basic travel, if you’re in the US, similar to what you’d find on Southwest. Bare bones but it’ll get you there."

Pros: "Everything was bearly acceptable"
Cons: "I asked the stewardess if she could fill my water bottle and was actually told that only one glass of water per person was allowed! Next time I would try Norwegian Air, which is known as a budget airline."

Cons: "We had to leave the airplane and board another one due to technical issues. This is the second time that that happens to me with SAS."

Pros: "We rode economy. This was on par with other airlines. Plane was clean, Crew was good. On time. Actually seemed that the seats had a bit more room than the American Airlines planes."
Cons: "Cannot talk to a human. Check in was at a Luftansa kiosk. If an attendant at the Frankfurt airport had not showed us, there was no obvious way to guess how to check a bag or get a boarding pass. So if you do not speak German fluently, ask an attendant as soon as you get to the check in area, and save yourself some walking and time."

Cons: "My flight was cancelled and no one notified me! Instead, FlyUs.com placed me on a different SAS flight that had a 15 minute layover in Copenhagen. Needless to say, I would have missed the flight from Copenhagen. I realized the issue the day-of, spent hours on the phone trying to book a different flight through the customer services at FlyUs.com (stupid company!), and was finally rebooked by SAS on a different airline. When I called SAS directly, they immediately took care of the situation and handled it well, but I wasted an entire day dealing with FlyUs.com, waiting on confirmation for a flight that I was never going to receive. The whole experience was awful."

Cons: "40 minute delay No food on a three-hour flight, first European airline to implement the same policy that US airlines have used for domestic US flights"

Pros: "Crew Flight delayed. Said 30. Actual 1 hour"
Cons: "Kayak sold me a one way usd 500 ticket and did not give me the option to add the luggage. Had to pay 60 eur in the airport. Is probably better to buy in the airline directly"

Cons: "Very cramped airplane on an 8 hour flight!!! Plus, no meal on trans-atlantic flight??!!"

Pros: "Fairly new plane."
Cons: "Only airline that made us check in our luggage; and charged us an exorbitant amount (+/- $90 per luggage) in doing so. No customer service at all. 1st attendant wouldn’t let us check-in at the counter, and 2nd attendant made us check in our carry-on despite it only being 2kg over. We could’ve moved some items around. When we boarded the plane, we saw multiple people whose carry-on looked suspiciously over the weight limit. We felt singled out. It was obvious that this airline only cares about profit and does not care about the customer. Attendants were rude and not helpful. Needless to say I will nit fly with this airline again."

Pros: "The 2 gate agents were very helpful and nice, as well as the on-board flight attendants, all were very professional and did a good job for the most part."
Cons: "a few little things, nothing worth mentioning..."

Pros: "Flight left on time, the plane was clean and comfortable, but the staff could do with some additional training."
Cons: "They did not serve coffee in our table, the cabin crew were abrupt, almost rude, and in my opinion they can do better."

Pros: "At når det bar noe som var mistenkelig så var det ikke noe alternativ, skift fly"
Cons: "Å måtte skifte fly"

Pros: "The customer service was great & they attended to my son who has a disability & flying on his own. He arrived well & happy so we were pleased with the service."

Pros: "Excellent all around. Super smooth, friendly and fast!!"

Cons: "Wound up having to pay 150$ for checking 2 bags. Almost more than the tickets. Feel ripped off. Don't remember the web getting a chance when i ordered the tickets to purchase at a lower rate. SAS said, since i bought the tickets through a travel agent, there was nothing they could do. Next time I'll buy tickets directly from SAS."

Cons: "The flight was cancelled."

Cons: "They should really let you know ahead of time that certain seats (like the ones in front of the emergency exit--not at the emergency exit) dont recline. The passenger in front of me reclined her chair all the way back and seeing as I couldnt recline my seat I had very little space and found the three hour flight extremely unpleasant."

Pros: "Crew very nice. More leg room in front of seats then most planes.. Plane on time ."
Cons: "Not many movie choices, Food was just ok. Do not put tomatoes on sandwiches ahead of time, it makes the bread wet and soggy."

Cons: "There was no food so can't give food any stars"

Pros: "The flight crews were great. The entertainment on the long flight was good. The food was abundant."
Cons: "While in Stockholm we had a flight delay and multiple gate changes. The lack of communication was frustrating. The food was too spicy for my taste as well as my 2 yr olds. No options were offered on the menu."

Pros: "Fast flight, drank some coffee."
Cons: "It was a quick flight, nothing much to say."

Pros: "Nice guy behind the counter."
Cons: "At self check-in, we received a message that we had been placed on standby and that our seats were no longer guaranteed (for the SECOND time this trip with no explanation despite our having purchased our tickets quite some time ago). We were directed to the gate for questions. No one manned the gate until right before boarding. We spent the entire time in a panic trying to figure out how else we could get to our destination in time for a wedding. When we finally talked to someone at the counter, he said this was just normal procedure to be able to shuffle seats. This is not normal. I have flown with many airlines, and I cannot imagine it is ever "normal" policy to tell people they have been downgraded to standby until just before the flight. So much anxiety. Also, the flight was delayed, and the crew had no communication about gates or any other information (within their OWN AIRLINE) for those with connecting flights."

Cons: "Cheap airline, entertainment system failure, paying for soft drinks?????? Food was an absolute disaster on one flight and no food service at all on the second flight. Abysmal service on both legs. Call for further details."

Cons: "This flight never happened"

Pros: "This was one of the best airlines we've flown. Great food, plenty of room, friendly stewardesses and good service overall. We will definitely try to book with SAS again."
Cons: "Nothing. There was nothing to not like. In fact they fed us too much!"

Cons: "When trying to board in Copenhagen there were some mishaps, but these were mainly caused by people ignoring signs along the way. They did not offer any complimentary snacks at all. Only one drink"

Pros: "The airline is very professional and the crew were very courteous."
Cons: "During my layover, the airline did not post the gate for my flight to Athens until an hour before, which caused me to have to run across the terminal to another set of gates."

Cons: "Seat was uncomfortable."

Pros: "Had to pay USD 75/bag which was not clear when I booked the ticket. You have to inform the customer about these rukes."

Cons: "We missed the connection and they rescheduled us on another connecting flight with further delays. This airline doesn't seem to care about their customers."

Cons: "After a 9 hour flight from Chicago to Stockholm I had to fly to Athens in an old type airplane , no entertainment, no TV & I had to pay for the food and the drinks. Very disappointing !"

Pros: "The food was not too bad and the menu options were alright. I love using the complimentary ear buds."
Cons: "Could use some improvements on comfort and efficiency"

Pros: "Being on time"
Cons: "Jetlag from the previous flight, please do something about it, just kidding..."

Pros: "It was a shorter ride with few frills but we arrived safely. The two young employees who rendered wheelchair assistance were very gracious and attentive to every detail."
Cons: "The noise factor was very high."

Pros: "Food was good"
Cons: "Charge for drinks. TV broken no recompensatuon"

Cons: "No food, no entertainment. Bring a book."

Pros: "Temperatures was good not very hot. Has a handicapped bathroom."
Cons: "Cabin light was only slightly dimmed during the 8 hrs flight. Then instead of gradually brighten the light. They just flip the switch to full blast. I think they are trying to sell you more duty free than letting their customers rest. Not ok!"

Pros: "Staff seemed nice. Boarding didn't take too long even when I was selected for a random check."
Cons: "The air conditioning didn't go on until take off. There were no options for food. All alcoholic beverages were not complementary and priced too high. I got sick after eating the meal that was provided. i reserved a seat but at check in the computer assigned me a different seat number. I was flying with a family member and instead of sitting next to them I had to sit next to a stranger."

Pros: "Food was good."
Cons: "Had to pee."

Pros: "The entertainment system is among the best of airlines."
Cons: "The Lufthansa representative in Frankfurt made me check one of my bags, when SAS clearly said I was allowed to have one carry-on and one personal item. This was not a Lufthansa flight, but the rude attendant insisted on enforcing Lufthansa rules on an SAS flight and refused to even allow me to voice an objection. I will not fly Lufthansa ever after this. SAS should have its own representatives who understand customer service at all gates."

Cons: "I missed my flight due to car troubles and has been very difficult in trying to get a refund for my flight. SAS was very unhelpful at the airport I had to go to Delta and purchase and entirely new flight!"

Pros: "Reasonably on time"
Cons: "No entertainment at all, no food at all, unless you are willing to pay 10 euros for a sad looking sandwich. You got water or coffe, or you overpaid. And it's not like they're giving the seats away!"

Pros: "Everything was smooth"

Cons: "2 hr delay on a 2 hr flight"

"Great flight - would have preferred actual business seats but now it seems in Europe this is what it is"

Pros: "Crew was ok and the seat was a bit uncomfortable. I am over 6 feet so I always have a bit of a problem with the seat"
Cons: "Seat"

Pros: "safe trip"
Cons: "no entertainment, no food, would like to be aware no food"

Pros: "Our crew on the trip from DC to London was excellent- friendly and efficient. We really enjoyed the whole experience."
Cons: "The short trip from London to Vienna felt overcrowded with people lugging heavy suitcases on board. Also the fact that you have to purchase even water was a surprise because we were not aware of such a severe policy by BA. Plus our American credit cards were not accepted by the on board cc machine so we spent 2 hour flight without any refreshments"

Cons: "Plugs to charge devices"

Cons: "No meals served, and no beverages, unless you are willing to pay inflated prices for garbage. They will give you tap water if you ask, and that's that. I still find this approach despicable and unnecessarily stingy, especially since this is BA, not a lowcost."

Cons: "We had to beg for one cup of water on a 3 & 1/2 flight. Very poor customer service."

Cons: "Checking, boarding and overall experience"

Pros: "The crew at HYD airport is good people."

Pros: "Crew members were all very nice"
Cons: "Long delays"

Cons: "Having gate #earlier than 1 hour before takeoff"

Cons: "The entertainment is missing"

Pros: "Comfortable, good service and on time"
Cons: "N/A"

Cons: "You have to pay for food, snacks and water on this flight. there were no complimentary snacks or drinks given."

Cons: "Still waiting to get out of London... so not good."

Pros: "Boarding was fast."
Cons: "Not even a complimentary cup of coffee or tea, just tap water."

Cons: "The equipment was old and didn't seem to be well maintained. And they did not offer even a glass of water on a 3 and a half hour flight. Even water was on sale!"

Cons: "Flight delayed"

Cons: "Plane smelled bad. Had to pay for food. Not even water was included. Inside the plane is worn and needs upgrades."

Pros: "Too many delays"

Pros: "Flight crew"
Cons: "Infant ticketing was royally messed up on the was out and back. Ticket booking over phone took two hours. Ticketing at seat took nearly 45 minutes. Absurd waste of time."

Pros: "The plane was tidy and arrived in Venice early. Boarding was orderly."
Cons: "There was no entertainment."

Pros: "Timely"
Cons: "Frumpy and unkempt crew. No longer offer complimentary coffee or anything. You must pay for everything. Had to give my carryon bag even though there was lots of room inside the plane"

Pros: "it got there"
Cons: "how it got there"

Pros: "Somehow we board first than everyone else. It left and arrived on time. Friendly service."

Cons: "The flight staff of my flight to Amsterdam were horrendous. I was in an aisle seat and was woken up by the drink cart hitting my leg and a hot coffee being poured a good 7 inches from my face. This was not acknowledged or apologetic. They also took drink orders by shouting. They were easily the loudest people on the plane and made the flight way less comfortable than it could have been."

Pros: "Crew were great."
Cons: "Stop trying to be a budget airline and invest in your customers rather than shareholders. Need better seats, free meals on 4+ hour flights, and entertainment. Also, the plane was old and definitely needed interior work (call buttons and lights were constantly flashing and ringing for the last 30 minutes of the flight)."

Cons: "food was not offered you had pay. to eat which in my opinion is not proper at least a sandwich should be offered,"

Pros: "The flight was on time and really nothing important has happened - and that was good. I also liked that the British Airways wished us Merry Christmas instead Happy Holidays I've been hearing here in the US where people's correctness really sucks."
Cons: "Everything was ok thus I'm not complaining."

Pros: "More modern plane."
Cons: "No snacks, no food, 1 drink. Aegaen airlines gave good from Spain to Athens and back, for a lot less ticket flight."

Pros: "I liked your entertainment , movies, series lots to choose from."
Cons: "Your crew was horrible, I had assistance but they seemed bothered in helping me to help me get to my seat... I pity those who might assistance with that crew on future flights... Hopefully they will get the nicer crew from NY to London they were amazing."

Pros: "The staff in airplane was okay"
Cons: "The boarding staff are very rude"

Pros: "The flight attendants and crew were great"
Cons: "NA"

Cons: "Flight was changed and I had to wait 8 hours for the connection."

Cons: "Didn't know catering was on sale"

Cons: "No free food. No movie, no usb"

Pros: "Great Crew, fast boarding, very accommodating"

Pros: "Terminal 5"
Cons: "Disgusted that they wanted to charger £11 pp to change seat at check-in 24hrs prior to the flight!"

Pros: "The crew was nice."
Cons: "Is this really the British Airways business class within Europe? What a disappointment. Felt like I was in economy except the only difference was I got my drink served in glass rather than plastic. Why don't you get some tips from Emirates considering from Abu Dhabi to Doha you had 10"+ tvs infront of you, tons of leg room and actually good food offerings."

Cons: "Same as above."

Pros: "Heathrow is huge and our gate changed during the last hour with out announcement until 35 minutes before the flight. There was a 2nd flight flying at the same time from a different gate with the same flight # with simply an A added which was very confusing."
Cons: "Absolutely no food and we were charged for a soda... seriously? It took the WIFI 5 minutes to process the 1.75 sale. Are you kidding BA? Flight attend were indifferent to passengers and actually held their chlorine with the foolish shopping cart when we tried to make it to the rest room. Unpleasant at best. Oh, and there was no entertainment at all on the 767 we had unless you count the magazine. Sorry BA, you have some work to do."

Cons: "Checking into Heathrow was interesting because they have automated systems to bag drop. I always like talking to a person which I could have done but was unaware. I had printed my boarding passes which then was sent to the automated line. That being said I had an issue with my carry on it was a literally too big because of the handle sticking out. So I had to check it. One of the women there was kind and sent met back to the British Airways check in section again to check it. She said don't worry it'll be free. So I went to the assigned line and a woman stopped me and told me I needed to stand with the rest of the people in the checked baggage line not the hand baggage line. I said I was sent to this line. She said well you're going to have to pay if it is too big. I said I was sent to this line because I was told it would be free to check it. Her attitude/tone was rude. Which for me was not ok. I had just landed in Heathrow from Newark and was starting jet lag, plus I literally was able to carry on my bag at Newark. Same company! I was trying my best to be kind but she just kept insisting that I was going to pay for the bag. I then stated that I already had paid for the bag! As I had paid for 4 and only checked 3! So if necessary this would be the 4th bag. Now I would not have had to do this if British Airways had allowed me to tack on my Athens trip to my Heathrow trip. When I found out they could do that they said it would be an extra $1025 to do so. I told them that I would just go through customs and get my bags and put them on the Athens flight. Of course I get to the counter and the woman there was wonderful and told me not to worry that it would be taken care of. So thank you to the woman who diverged a ridiculous argument over the handle not fitting in the cage. Moving forward boarding was interesting as I have never ridden in a train that takes you to the plane on the tarmac. It was a little long and VERY hot as they fill them to the brim and it was a good 10 min ride with people packed like sardines. When we got to the plane boarding was quick and efficient. The seating in that plane was very much like a spirit flight for close to 4 hours. There was a lot of turbulence and the landing was a little hard but that's to be expected in planes."

Pros: "Good service with wheelchair assistance when needed. Early boarding made it easier for my husband."

Pros: "Efficient and on time"
Cons: "Movie started too late so there wasn't time to finish"

Pros: "Comfortable seats"
Cons: "Delayed flight. Only accept credit cards on board."

Pros: "The payment system was down so it was painful and slow"

Pros: "the plane was comfortable even when full, although there are only two toilets for over 200 people in coach which makes it difficult sometimes"
Cons: "I used to live in London in the past, and commute with BA routinely, without any considerable issues. With this in mind, I booked this flight through the american site as I now live in the US. Big mistake. Even though I'm still a BA member and I checked in 24 hours prior to departure on the minute, I had no way of choosing a seat, in fact I had to pay to change my assigned emergency exit aisle seat. Secondly, there was a 5,5 hour delay, due to fog, which affected BA but not Easyjet or Aegean flying the same route at the same time, leaving me looking at all the other passengers taking off while I waited at the airport without any notice from my company. This resulted in me getting a debilitating migraine, for which I had to request painkillers on the plane. For anyone who hasn't done this before, despite how helpful the staff are, there's always "procedure" to be followed and papers to be signed before obtaining tylenol. Finally, when I contacted BA customer service to request a refund for this trip, considering if I had booked with any other airline I wouldn't have gone through all that, I was told it was my fault for not carrying painkillers and they "absolutely do not reimburse" such situations involving the weather. All in all, this was the last BA flight I will ever book and I am happy to go back to the US where customer service has an actual meaning and passenger wellbeing is always a priority."

Pros: "Food options were great! Very good value"
Cons: "Boarding was delayed and unstructured"

Pros: "Again, very impressed with British Airwasy in every capacity."

Pros: "Easy flight to Athens"
Cons: "Rude agents on the ground in London were very unprofessional making comments about American travelers."
