Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Cons: "When we checked in for the return flight in CPH we learned that our return ticket was “light” ie it did not include luggage. we were not informed about this, we did not request a ‘light” return ticket, and...why would we when we checked luggage flying over? We’d like the usd100 refunded"
Pros: "Boarding was easy, flight was smooth and on time."
Cons: "Seats were snug, granted we had the less expensive tickets."
Pros: "SAS has offered great service on two flights this past week. Look forward to flying them again."
Pros: "The crew was nice and the food was good."
Cons: "More entertainment options"
Pros: "Easy to board, on time and food was good"
Pros: "I had a middle row of seats that I was able to stretch out in and sleep."
Cons: "Better Food Choices...not everyone likes cheese!!!"
Pros: "Good selection of movies and music. Food was mediocre."
Cons: "Our seat location was near the toilets in the middle of the plane. Seemed like an unusual high number of passengers constantly using the toilets throughout the flight which created long ques in the isle and very unpleasant smells. Would never select these seats again."
Pros: "I have used Kayak for years without issue. This time I was flying SAS for the first time. The plane broke and so that was the first huge delay SAS had terrible customer service. They reminded me several times that I was not a preferred customer and that I had bought my ticket through kayak. This is the reason they gave for lack of help. It was frustrating to say the least. I’m not sure how they expect to gain repeat customers if they treat first time customers like that."
Pros: "Check in at the airport gate was handled professionally."
Cons: "Bought our seats 2 months in advance. One day before flight, saw our assigned seats were changed, someone had our original seats 31G/H, and we were put in 48C/D. Could not get any assistance to correct the situation until we were at the gate and by that time no comparable seats were available. Also, my husband spilled his drink; one of the attendants said he was too busy to help with cleanup. Fortunately, another attendant came over after my husband went to the galley to again ask for assistance."
Cons: "I will never fly with spirits again.. ever"
Cons: "The flight was more than one hour delayed."
Pros: "Flight left on time, plane was clean, the entertainment was good, and the food was good. The crew in this flight were polite and responsive."
Cons: "Rerouted without consultaton - added an extra leg to my trip including a necessary mad dash to catch the make-up flight."
Pros: "Friendly service. No problem with moving to open seats to stretch out."
Cons: "Even though it was an older plane, it was still comfortable."
Pros: "Fair leg space, kind stewards."
Cons: "It would be nice if they could offer some snacks or something to drink. Seems to be higher quality than low costs, so they could afford to offer that."
Cons: "I would like more checked baggage allowance."
Pros: "Nice staff, comfortable."
Cons: "Not sure why they only have like 20 movies, most of which are not good. Delta has hundreds of movies to choose from. Old and new. When entertainment is included in the high price of these long haul trips, it helps to have a semi-decent selection."
Pros: "Pleasant crew"
Cons: "Boarding was shambolic and the 737 is not as nice as the new A320 in terms of comfort or amenity. Boarding was all over the place - and the gate agents clearly need extra people around for a full flight. One person for 170 ppl didn't feel right."
Pros: "I liked that boarding and take off went smoothly. The cabin crew was extremely nice and always was there when you need something!"
Cons: "There was no snack served."
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."
Pros: "Crew were pleasant."
Cons: "'Fluctuating' baggage fees, no free snacks on a four hour flight, no in-flight entertainment, no wifi, 30 minutes late without updates on monitor due to previous delay."
Pros: "Again, the flight was fine, and cabin crew was friendly"
Cons: "When I went to the SAS counter to print my boarding pass, the counter lady couldn't find my information. She left me at the counter and went inside to find out more info. Then when she came out, she started interrogating me forcefully, about why I got United involved with my check in for my first leg of the trip, because I am causing her to have all this extra work and etc. How dare she!!! First of all. I didn't want to involve United, the service counter at SAS was closed the entire time, and the flight on my first leg was operated by United, so i had no choice but to go to United. In fact I should be the one asking why I had to involve United in the first place. Where was SAS when I needed their help and guidance???? Why was their counter closed the entire time??? Such a poorly organized airline, I'll be wary to fly with SAS again."
Pros: "Delayed flight arrived nearly on time."
Cons: "- Boarding process chaotic. Boarding began 20minutes after the scheduled delayed-boarding time without any notice. Gate seating area at CPH was far too small - very stuffy and standing room only. - Aircraft on its last leg. Most of the A340's seats had broken cupholders. Restrooms were out of paper/soap with no attention from crew. Overhead personal lights were either burnt or malfunctioning. - Lunch meal was decent. pre-landing meal is the same as the snack... some sort of dry and non-appealing wrap. - Crew did not perform passenger safety-check before takeoff and landing (seat backs raised up and seat belts fastened)."
Pros: "I am vegetarian with no egg fish or meat. I didn't get any choices"
Pros: "Quick, efficient"
Cons: "Older plane, entertainment, & food"
Pros: "We were eventually rebooked in the class we paid for."
Cons: "Our flight was cancelled with no notice. We were rebooked in economy class when we paid over $5,000 for business class tickets, and told we would "probably" receive a refund for the difference. after much prodding, asking and begging, we were finally rebooked in a flight on Lufthansa the same night. That airline was upset, though, because SAS did not call them or notify them that we had been switched to their airline."
Cons: "Never made it to destination"
Cons: "The flight was cancelled causing a domino effect of plans. I spent the evening and morning canceling and trying to reschedule plans. Your airline rebooked me for a flight the next day that ended up having air filter problems. I lost 3 days of vacation from the 10 total I get a year and from the 8 I had taken for my vacation."
Pros: "One included checked bag"
Cons: "We were being charged for bottled water and soda"
Pros: "That the person with whom I would have shared seats, found one with their party - had all the space...by chance ! The people at the counters are nice."
Cons: "1) I had an empty bottle and asked for water for multiple medications (as I had sprained my foot) thinking the stewardess had a jug of water. She opened a bottle and poured a fifth . I said I had to take many pills (antiinflamatory are three) plus iron and probiotics I take. She told me, holding the used bottle mostly full, that if I wanted more , I should buy a bottle !!!! And put it away !!! How insensitive and inhuman !!! I didn't know she was going to open a bottle !!!! Very insulting !! 2) When another stewardess passed by offering food, I asked what did we have a right to and she (only then) offered me tea or coffee (which should have been offered first). They I asked, as in all other flights (short South American flights and USA donestic) if she gave crackers or nuts to which she unnecessarily gloated pointing to the curtain that there , in economic plus , they had everything free ...insulting treatment and unnecessary information ...just like in my trip to Nice !! Same attitude ...it's probably horrible training courses. 3) you'd think the men and women that speak over the loud speaker would have bothered to learn English ...it was broken English and even sounded like babble to me...so I just ignored it ! 3) again no instructions for transfer as you come out of the plane. Had to figure it out asking cleaners ..as my flight was at night again. People below seem to coincide in that they complain of rudeness and lack of re-direction."
Pros: "Upgraded 2 biz 4 reasonable $, everything great"
Pros: "It was a pleasant flight with friendly service. Boarding was smooth and efficient."
Cons: "Food choices and limited entertainment. I know that SAS need to remain competitive, but strict limits in drinks seems a bit cheap."
Pros: "We got to sit in the emergency aisle so I can't complain about comfort. The staff was really friendly (although they were really rude on the way over 10 days earlier, so I guess we just got lucky with a nice crew for this one)."
Cons: "You only get one free non-alcoholic drink on this flight and that's really stingy for a 7+ hour a long haul. Drinks should be free on a long haul, especially non-alcoholic ones. There aren't any free small snacks like chips or peanuts. You have to pay for everything and the menu is exorbitantly over priced. It's a cheap and insulting customer strategy. They can save a few bucks in overhead on each customer this way, but they are losing money in the long run because I'll never book with them again due to their tawdry actions. I doubt I am alone."
Pros: "Did not use their services much but the stewards seemed nice."
Cons: "Flight was delayed, no entertainment, not many food options for people with certain dietary requirements."
Pros: "nothing exceptional but the attendant did give us some water for free."
Cons: "This is a non frills flight and that was expected but I NEVER expected to pay for bags to be checked on an international flight. 66 Euro per bag. It was the first time I had paid for checked bags on an international flight. I will look elsewhere next time."
Pros: "Food was ok"
Cons: "Crew members not friendly."
Pros: "Space between rows of seats was excellent"
Cons: "No options in menu. No free wine, beer and other spirits."
Pros: "tjis flight was on United Airlines. It was nice and simple"
Cons: "the landinf was ROUGH and The plane was very grimy"
Cons: "Unfriendly and rude desk help. Rude and insulting. United was a real disappointment. I will ask my travel agent to be in touch re screw up the economy plus seats. I had to pay extra for what our itinerant said had been booked. Mary, at the desk at C12 in Delles, she wouldn't give me her last name was unbelievably insulting and unhelpful."
Cons: "I didn't.t like your movies selection? Not very current. the food was awful. Not being able to book a seat until I arrived from Amsterdam."
Cons: "I and my 2 children, 10 and 8, thought the dinner was really bad. Also, entertainment selection was lacking. Other than that I thought sas did a great job with the flight."
Pros: "Flights were on time. Crew was great."
Cons: "Over crowded boarding area - delay at departure"
Cons: "Gate attendant in Stockholm was not pleasant to my travelling partner, when she was concerned about me being able to get on the flight in the rush from leaving the very delayed flight from Reykjavik. she was not empathetic; was unhelpfully directive, impatient."
Cons: "I was bumped off. So I liked nothing about that SAS flight."
Cons: "Lost luggage delivered today"
Cons: "The fight was cancelled due to the on-going Swedish pilot strike."
Pros: "The flight was fine. No issues except it was late. Not a big deal."
Cons: "My bag was soaked and my clothes inside - top layer and some second layer items were wet. Some colors bled into other garments and they are ruined. Really not happy my bag was left out in the rain in Germany."
Pros: "On time flights. Very friendly personnel"
Pros: "Amy was absolutely amazing! She was attentive, knowledgeable, and friendly! One of the best flight attendants l have ever met."
Cons: "Seat didn’t recline..."
Pros: "All was good and on time"
Cons: "Just be good, they could still offer free drinks or water to passengers"
Cons: "One world flight that charged a platinum customer for luggage. That’s unbelievable!"
Cons: "The entertainment system wasnt working on the first flight, and had poor content on the second flight."
Pros: "we buy the tickets from kayak and reconfirmed with British Airways is that we allowed to have one suitcase of 23 kilo checked in for each person . would get to their products and we paid 180 US dollars for the read suitcases we have . I didn’t mention kayak to give me the 180 us dollar back"
Cons: "we buy the tickets from kayak and reconfirmed with British Airways is that we allowed to have one suitcase of 23 kilo checked in for each person . would get to their products and we paid 180 US dollars for the read suitcases we have . I didn’t mention kayak to give me the 180 us dollar back"
Pros: "I appreciated the courteous crew and the blankets. I appreciate the safe trip."
Cons: "Plane was delayed and I didn't like the $60 baggage check in fee. That's ridiculous. Airplane comfort in economy class is always medium. The main gripe is the $60 cost for the one suitcase."
Pros: "There was a good selection of very different movies to watch. I found four that I wanted to see."
Cons: "There were not enough chairs in the waiting area. There was a long wait, first, just to get on the plane, then, instead of letting us stay in the waiting area, we were all seated, and left waiting for at least an hour, most of that time without explanation, sitting in a stifling plane at the gate, without being allowed to get up and move around. Also, the ratio of carbohydrates to protein in the main meal was way out of kilter. I don't want rice + potatoes + bread + crackers all in one meal, with zero vegetables. The tiny piece of cheese helped."
Cons: "Very bad smell, pass landing"
Pros: "Flight crew informed us what was happening although all passengers were accounted for earlier than departure time. Very pleasant crew members and pilots."
Cons: "No entertainment available and no snacks available without purchase."
Pros: "Staff were friendly."
Cons: "Heathrow’s use of buses to move passengers around is ridiculous for a modern airport. No water offered on flight exacerbated by dehydration from previous flight. All refreshments for a fee. I will not fly BA again if there is an alternative."
Pros: "Arrived early"
Cons: "Arrived pm from manchester stayed in hotel at heathrow to fly out following day to Basel at 8am. BA would not check bag all way through. Seems they only do this at Gatwick. Poor service from Heathrow/BA"
Pros: "excellent friendly crew"
Cons: "5 hours late"
Pros: "No entertainment on the flight"
Pros: "BA overall service was good."
Cons: "Boarding at venice was a disaster. they changed gate without annoncing it in english. I am sure they did it in Italian but not every travel speaks italian. getting on bus to airplane was not organized at all. staff let people ahead of me taking their carry on bags larger than my normal size bag but asked me to check in mine. i thought perhaps i am amoung the last and there is no room left. how ever while i was waiting they let many others take their carry on with them. i explained them that i have expensive Murrano glass in my carry on and prefer not to check in or at least provide a tag to mark it fragile. response was that we are out of tag! and i have no choioce. i was very upset theway they trreated me and told them i will file a complain and took their picture. almost by the time i was getting on bus one of crew approached me with at Fragile tag to add to my bag. after all when i received my carry on bag in LAX many of my gifts were smashed and broken."
Pros: "The A380"
Cons: "Two kids in front of us screamed throughout flight No sleep possible"
Cons: "Always late always charge for water that’s sad"
Pros: "The crew was friendly."
Cons: "The flight was over two hours late. No USB ports for electronics. Leg room and seats were dismal."
Pros: "We arrived safely, albeit over 1 hour late"
Cons: "Our hand baggage was taken at the gate because the flight was full. There was a large amount of unused overhead storage on the plane. The crew agreed that they had started to take bags far too early. Despite being taken at the gate our bag was one of the last off"
Cons: "They were late by 2 hrs"
Pros: "Late taking off, but made up time in the air."
Cons: "For a long flight, it is very cramped."
Pros: "Sitting in exist row with leg room"
Cons: "Seats are small, not enough elbow space. Movie selection was bad."
Pros: "Ice cream. Nowday, on flight food is hard to find the tasty one."
Cons: "Flight attendant moved my purse into an overhead bin while I slept They Couldn’t find it for over an hour. Panic. Passport and cash in purse."
Cons: "This was in coach class, so I understand the cramped quarters, but even on a long haul flight (BA 49, LHR-SEA), how could they justify the seating in the planes? Perhaps BA executives should fly coach class on one of these planes to understand what they are putting their customers up to. Here are 2 additional items that should be a no-brainer to fix: a) They ran out of fresh bottled water. For the last one hour, all they could offer was sparkling water b) Somehow BA seem to be saving on food portions (or their caterer needs to be changed) - lunch/dinner portions are way too small."
Cons: "Flight was very late. Reason given was a mechanical issue but last minute boarding was people whose flight out of Gatwick was cancelled and they were bussed to Heathrow so I suspect that was the real cause for the delay or at least a part of it"
Pros: "I have no complaints about the flight. It was a full flight but we tooked off in time and food/ drinks service was prompt. Unfortunately I left my phone on the flight and I have not got it back yet, a full week later."
Pros: "crew was very pleasant and helpful"
Cons: "i ve had seat no 49H the only seat in the airplane with the exterior arm rest whithout cover i took the seat but first time ive got up ive torne my jeans...(ripped them badly and scratched my leg in the sharp piece of metal coming out at the end of arm rest i have shown the crew memeber what happened(a male) in i have filled out a report with the"silver tie lady" i would kindly like to find out what type of compensation i will get for the unpleasant situation of walking around in the LA airport with a big hole in the back of my jeans i can be reached at "email@example.com" or ph (310) 626-3201 kind regards Moldoveanu George Gabriel"
Cons: "My main issue is that I wasn't adequately informed that it was a codeshare and that I could choose my seats ahead of time"
Pros: "Great service"
Cons: "Using stairs to de-plane"
Pros: "Extremely pleasant crew!"
Cons: "Very crowded flight and plane."
Pros: "The price of the flight offers is what made me purchase through kayak, but the disconnect with the airline and booking agency left me stranded and ultimately required me to buy a flight directly that will take me almost half a year to pay off not to mention the inconvenience of switching airports and sleeping on a bench for 4hrs."
Cons: "When I missed my flight, the airline would not offer assistance because I booked through an online vendor (webjet through kayak) and when I called webjet they failed to help me rebook, made me buy a new flight, then when I called looking for the flight information, they managed to cancel the flight and then claimed I had requested this when I had done no such thing. On top of this they only offer next calendar day booking so even though they are fully responsible for botching up the second flight I booked. I have talked to 10 individuals from different agencies. Everyone passes blame and responsibility off on someone else. On top of everything else, noone but the American Airlines representatives showed any empathy or concern for my being stranded for the night. Based on this experience, I will do everything in my power to dissuade people from using Kayak, webjet, amadeus and British Airways."
Pros: "Comfortable flight with personal entertainment screen. Also had an extra seat next to me to spread out!"
Pros: "entertainment options were good & staff was nice. Flights were both on time."
Cons: "I was very disappointed in the serious lack of legroom on the flight. I would think of a flight was 8 hours there would at least A little leg room. I paid for a seat and the lady next to me kept raising the arm rest and spilling into my seat. I had to lean over into the aisle and was miserable the entire flight. The guy in front of me also reclined his seat all the way and I couldn't get my tray down and it took a lot of effort to get out to use the restroom. I was beyond disappointed with how little leg room there was and I am only 5'6". I completely understand that more seats mean more money for airline, but this isn't even safe in the event of an emergency."
Pros: "Overall flight better London to Beirut l"
Cons: "Long wait over"
Pros: "Flight was punctual, left on time and arrived in Gatwick early."
Cons: "Took 2 hours 20 mins to be offered in flight catering on a 2 hour 30 min flight. Next time will be bringing my own food and drink."
Pros: "Quick flight. Was late leaving but made up time in the air."
Cons: "Not enough time to serve folks while in flight. Consider taking orders in the Departure Lounge before boarding flight."
Pros: "The crew was friendly, and the plane was clean."
Pros: "This was just a short trip, but just as enjoyable as our cross-Atlantic trip. Crew was excellant, plane was clean, ride was smooth."
Cons: "Paying 45 pounds for my relatively small suitcase."
Pros: "Food was excellent"
Pros: "Left on time"
Cons: "Charged me an extra 120 to check my bags"
Cons: "One hour delay due to equipment failure. they loaded us and closed the door to hit hit the "on time" mark but then made us sit on the plane for the fix. There is no way the failure was discovered after loading. Usually the seats are ok, this one was the sardine plane, very tight. We were on the bulkhead seat (more room) but the entertainment screens were all yucky."
Cons: "flight was cancelled and they abandoned us"
Pros: "Just great service, always! Could use a bit more leg room as always but otherwise I've never had any issues with BA!"
Pros: "Boarding was quick and staff was friendly. On board the service was great. All flight attendants were smiling, friendly and kept coming through the economy cabin with orange juice and water to make sure we were all well hydrated. We received lunch, movie snacks, and a mini pizza lunch. The only meal that wasn't great was the mini pizza."
Cons: "The only minor issue we had on this flight was that our entertainment units stopped playing movies 4 hours before we landed. The cabin crew tried resetting it a few times and tried everything they could to fix it, but it didn't work. They did compensate us for the inconvenience so that was nice."
Pros: "Liked the efficient way a very drunk man was dealt with- he was however obviously very drunk (coud hardly stand) and gained access to his seat before a fellow passenger drew attention to his condition with the cabin staff. He was not allowed to travel."
Cons: "Limited amount of food available"
Pros: "older plane, so seats were like southwest's leather seats"
Cons: "Crew was very ignorant, only paid attention to those flashing their credit cards for purchases. didn't even offer water, so had to contact the customer service rep onboard who gave us water rather than the air hostess"
Cons: "Non-stop from Madrid to Philadelphia was canceled apparently because of a computer problem and then I was rerouted through Amsterdam with an extremely short connectios which in turn meant that baggage did not make it and was opened and damaged !!! BA clearly at fault. BA Reservations agent suggested to enter a complaint"
