Read more about Virgin Atlantic
Pros: "Great service and comfortable ride excellent staff"
Cons: "Cannot expect better service"
Pros: "People were friendly. Flight was comfortable."
Cons: "Staff incorrectly assessed documents needed for visas, and told us we were incomplete and needed to return home. Instead of looking up policy, we were denied boarding mid-flight, missed a wedding, and had to spend three days in London instead of our destination. Also, we got bug bites during the flight that turned out to be from bed bugs, which followed us home and caused much frustration for months."
Pros: "Being on time"
Cons: "Nothing you guys did great thank you so much."
Pros: "Boarding and crew great!"
Cons: "Seats extremely narrow"
Cons: "Squishy space and very late flight unfortunately"
Cons: "Seats were really old and outdated"
Pros: "The food was good. The lane was comfortable"
Cons: "The flight was nearly full, and the 767 is a large aircraft. I think it would be preferable if Virgin Atlantic would board the plane by zones, similar to other airlines."
Pros: "Crew was great. Flight was on time and crew helped the boarding process go smoothly. It was nice to get a beer or wine at no additional cost."
Cons: "Seat was shockingly small, even for economy class. TV was poor quality."
Cons: "More leg room"
Pros: "Great attentive service, good food and in-flight entertainment"
Pros: "Comfort, service food and entertainment. What more can you ask for."
Cons: "Nothing. ]"
Pros: "Nobody are better hosts than the British. Great service, lovely people."
Pros: "Sharp good atention in counter"
Pros: "This flight is the best I’ve been on! Boarding was easy, the seats were comfortable, the film choice was excellent and I enjoyed everything I ate. I really felt I was being treated well by all the staff on board."
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Lots of leg room, even in economy."
Cons: "Entertainment choices were a bit sparse."
Pros: "Service, meals, friendly and attentive FAs"
Cons: "I did not like the fact that my seat was between 2 small children that belonged to a family sitting behind me .It was ridiculous to put a stranger on a 10 hour flight with a 3yrar old on one side and a 5 year old on the other"
Pros: "The cabin crew were excellent!"
Cons: "I paid extra for Economy Delight seats for me and my wife. Shortly after take-off, our calm and comfortable more or less empty section of the aircraft was colonised by an extended family of Orthodox Jews in a kind of airborne West Bank situation. They weren’t in our section of the cabin at all to start with, and I don’t know why they were apparently able to get a free upgrade that I had to pay £100 for. We went from being in an almost empty cabin to being basically sat in the middle of an Orthodox Jewish kindergarten. It was awful! They were noisy, messy, were constantly getting in and out of their seats, the back of my seat kept getting kicked, and there was even a baby crawling around the aisle. We were surrounded. I have no idea whether this is characteristic of Orthodox Jewish family life, or just a completely inconsiderate family. They didn’t exactly ruin my flight, but they didn’t make it enjoyable either. I asked to be moved. The cabin crew were great and acknowledged the difficulty of the situation. My wife lost her window seat but at least we still had the legroom and peace and quiet."
Cons: "Incredibly uncomfortable, not enough minimum space to fit my knees behind seat in front when front passenger reclined. 6 hours is too long to have a metal rod sticking straight into your knee caps. Shoulders were squished between other passengers and had to sit twisted the whole way and Im not a large person, but am 6ft. Cabin crew impolite and unhelpful. Food was awful and made my friend sick."
Pros: "Legroom, lovely staff and all round good flight"
Pros: "The selection of entertainment"
Cons: "My seats headphone connection did not work. I had to hold it and wiggle it around if I wanted to listen to anything."
Pros: "Lovely food and staff. Lots of food."
Cons: "The seat pocket in front of me was broken. I didn't want to make a fuss but one would have thought during checks pre-flight that should have been noticed and rectified. I was flying with my family including my 4 yr old and we had lots of toys to keep her entertained but had no where to put them apart from on our seats and tables when we were allowed to have them down."
Pros: "Friendly cabin crew, excellent food and drinks. Very happy with the service we received"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "My flight was cancelled on Christmas Day, but we had to stand in line to wait to get onto another flight on another airline. They were so slow that the flight they tried to put everyone left and then they offered ZERO assistance to get another flight and wouldn’t even refund my ticket, just told me after waiting 3 hours to call whoever I booked with for a refund."
Pros: "Crew was very nice helpful and attentionate Entertainment had plenty of variety maybe not so many new movies but enough to find one you have not seen or classic you could watch again Food was good"
Cons: "We weighted our hand luggage at the counter and then they ask again during boarding little confusing"
Cons: "I always think Virgin's meals are the WORST among those of all the airlines I use. PLEASE LET THE VIRGIN COMPANY KNOW THIS FACT. The touch screen of the DVD player did not work well so it was a frustrating experience."
Pros: "Crew was professional."
Cons: "Couldn't stretch my right (window side) leg. Display quality was poor."
Pros: "Reasonably comfortable for a long jet ride. Helpful and considerate flight attendants."
Cons: "The strange windows that kept it looking like night out until 30 minutes before we landed. I prefer the natural light to help readjust my time zones."
Pros: "Helpful flight attendants"
Cons: "Delay at the airport due to system down where agents had to check in everyone manually"
Cons: "Very small leg room"
Pros: "Staff!"
Cons: "Food was awful. Sorry. Breakfast was unrecognizable. Landed hungry."

Cons: "My headphones and those of my neighbors did not work."
Pros: "Not having to pay for a checked bag. The check-in process was very easy The bag drop-off line was pretty speedy."
Cons: "The airline stewardesses moved very noisy passengers next to me and talked to them the whole flight."
Pros: "Legroom was much better than on U.S. carriers doing same long trip."

Pros: "Food, crew and overall experience was good"
Cons: "Got assigned seats all the way in the back. They were comfortable but would have preferred better seats."
Pros: "Flight okay and staff attentive. Seats still to close together. Had to purchase seat to guarantee not be in middle rows. Plane very warm throughout flight."

Pros: "Virgin has the nicest staff, good food, and excellent movie options. I had a great time on my flight!"
Pros: "There are lots of relatively new movies to choose from."
Cons: "The complimentary headset breaks easily. Tray table was broken and they can't fix it. Very small bathrooms, knees almost touch the door when sitting down. Food selection for dinner ran out quickly, resulting in only 2 choices and one is hot spicy, so basically only one choice. All beverages are given out in small cups, even water is given out in small cups increments (finish in one gulp), they don't even give out small bottles of water. No complimentary packet (eye shades, socks etc.) , not even a barf bag for collecting trash."
Cons: "Both my departing flight and returning flight had broken wifi on it. Very bummed"
Pros: "Staff was friendly and welcoming."
Cons: "There was nothing not to like."
Pros: "The service went a mile farther. It is my favourite airlines!"

Pros: "Very happy with everything"
Cons: "Air conditioning"
Pros: "It was on time, and the crew was welcoming and helpful."
Cons: "The lack of healthiness of the snack--mostly sweets."

Pros: "Crew was good"
Cons: "Food"
Cons: "No reading light in my seat..."
Cons: "At the check in they made me pay 50€ for my luggage. This is really upsetting because from Houston to Venice they didn't make me pay. Either the website wasn't transparent or the lady at the desk made a mistake. Very upsetting, one luggage should be included."
Pros: "Very personable staff. Food acceptable for airline fare. Ticket price was outstanding."

Pros: "The staff were friendly and all smiles. Seats were comfortable and we had a quick, smooth flight from Edinburgh to Amsterdam. The breakfast supplied was an egg and mayonnaise sandwich plus a drink, which seemed about right and very Dutch in character."
Cons: "It was rainy and necessary to walk outside to access the plane; the staff should give their customers a heads-up so that jackets can be donned. Additionally, the check-in queue seemed rather sluggish."
Pros: "The cabin crew were fantastic and funny"
Cons: "Tiny seats"
Pros: "KLM fed a sandwich even though the flight was only 2 hours. The crew was pleasant. Getting through the Amsterdam airport to catch a connecting flight with only an hour to do so was no big deal. Airport staff was pleasant and helpful."

Cons: "The seats were very hard. It was very uncomfortable sitting that long I’m those seats"
Cons: "Helpful flight attendant, kind check in attendant"
Pros: "Check in was so easy."
Pros: "that there was a water and a blanket on each seat!"
Cons: "I thought there was free alcohol on international flights. that you were not allowed to use the given blanket until after take off."
Cons: "Noise in aircraft. Transit time between flights was too short."
Pros: "Good boarding process and crew today."
Cons: "Plane was delayed and connection in Copenhagen was missed, resulting in a five-hour delay overall."
Cons: "Seats are too small in economy to be comfortable. Boarding was unclear and confusing, mainly because I didn't have a boarding group on my boarding pass."
Cons: "The flight was cancelled without explanation"
Pros: "Efficient friendly service."
Cons: "We were economy so no food was provided, as expected so cannot rate. No entertainment was offered either."
Pros: "Overall, an incredible experience!!!"
Cons: "The food was excellent"
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: "Nothing."
Cons: "Everything. Our flight was delayed from our departing city because the plane was leaking water on the floor and they had to send in a special cleaning crew to try to stop it. We were not given the seats we pre picked months before when buying the ticket. The ac was broken for the first half of the flight. Then, we missed our connecting flight because of the first delay. Once we got onto a new connecting flight, it was also delayed and once again, we missed our last connecting flight and are not making it to our final destination today."
Pros: "Great flight on SAS"
Cons: "Very good food and outstanding choice of movies as entertainment."
Pros: "I liked that it was available for me to return to Amsterdam in such late notice. Got there quickly and even earlier (10 mins) then expected."
Cons: "No on offered me anything to drink or a snack the entire flight or even a hand towel but others in front and behind me were receiving them. I didnt even feel acknowledged during the flight. Even though the tine was good, the price was way too high but since I was desperate I paid it."
Pros: "Flight attendants"
Cons: "Hottest I have ever been in a plane (we were in 40G and H) and I “run cold”. We were sweating and drinking water like crazy (they gave us one bottle and did not routinely walk the aisles handing out more). Luckily we brought our own water. Early June and headed to Scandinavia, not someplace hot. Seats were hard and I put my unused blankets under me."
Cons: "Tiny, hard, uncomfortable seats and cramped conditions, just about the worst 8 hours in my life"
Pros: "Everything was done quite well - not too fussy. Limited free drinks options on a transatlantic flight perhaps being the only possible complaint."
Cons: "Limited free drink options on a transatlantic flight."
Pros: "Boarding was smooth, luggage came out quickly."
Cons: "No entertainment, only coffee and tea served."
Cons: "Pay for a coke?"
Pros: "Plane was fine and it arrived on time."
Cons: "Main meal was awful. Crew was hard to find. Also water or juice was not served on flight after the meal (for hydration)."
Pros: "The crew is great. Did everything within their abilities to be comfortable"
Cons: "The cabin was too warm for the duration of the flight. The movie content wasn't that great. Also, the headphone jack on my seat was temperamental and I lost sound quite a bit. I wish they had more vegetables in their dish"
Pros: "The comfort and technology on the aircraft."
Cons: "NA"
Pros: "Not full. Kind crew."
Cons: "No complaints."
Pros: "The crew was so amazing and friendly!!"
Cons: "Crew not very friendly."
Cons: "Should at least serve some water"
Pros: "Seats are more comfortable than those of many other airlines."
Cons: "Normally, I am not picky regarding airline food. In SAS's economy or "Go" class, there is no choice of food. I can think of plenty of dishes that would be appealing to many people. Yet the meal that was served, beef stew, posed a problem as I don't eat red meet. Since many people also do not eat beef due to religious beliefs, I am appalled by SAS's decision to only serve this dish to its economy class passengers. As I ordered my ticket through Kayak, I didn't have the option to request a special diet, nor did I think to do so as airlines generally do not serve serve a beef dish as their one and only."
Pros: "Good leg room. Tasty meals. A good variety of entertainment options."
Cons: "The agent at the gate misled me into thinking there would be no fee associated with a checked bag. When it turned out there was, I was told it was too late."
Pros: "Ok friendly"
Pros: "I had a window seat with a view of New York City as we flew North."
Cons: "The sound quality of the earphones was so poor that I could not understand most of the dialogue of the film that I watched."
Pros: "service was good"
Cons: "The plane was full. Sets in economy were very small."
Pros: "The entertainment system was very good. The crew were all efficient and courteous, with the exception of one crew member who was rather curt."
Cons: "Our plane arrived at IAD late due to a minor mechanical that was repaired at its previous destination. Consequently, we departed IAD almost two hours late, causing us to miss our connection in Copenhagen. Norwegian Air had a flight leaving shortly from Copenhagen to Rome, but the transfer agent told us SAS "does not re-book with Norwegian." Instead we were assigned to two more flights, one to Brussels, and another from Brussels to Rome. We arrived in Rome around 17:00 rather than 10:35 as scheduled, losing a full day of sight-seeing."
Pros: "Everything was on time!"
Pros: "Friendly staff. Good food. Movie/tv options were excellent."
Cons: "Didn't like that I had to order vegetarian food option in advance. I would forget to do so before the flight. Despite that, I was still able to eat most of the meal since there was salad, bread and dessert which was filling enough."
Pros: "Timely or even earlier arrival. Generally, very good experience"
Cons: "NA"
Cons: "Delay after delay. Screaming kid"
Pros: "Modern plane, great entertainment system"
Cons: "Paying for booze, vegetarian breakfast is awful."
Cons: "Small and tight seats."
Cons: "The plane was very old and not maintained well, dirty and not clean from the previous flights"
Pros: "Clean, comfortable plane."
Cons: "No free alcohol. Limited food options."
Cons: "Not very many current movies, very cramped."
Pros: "The extra leg room I paid for."
Cons: "The cost to change my flight"
Cons: "Seats are allowed to recline to far. When you are sitting behind someone who has reclined their seat you have no room"
Pros: "Great aircraft, good food, awesome crew, very comfortable seats, the entertainment was really good. Overall super pleased. Hopefully it'll be the same on our return back to DC"
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: "Too much meat in meals."
Pros: "Flight was fine, service good, and our seat choice excellent."
Cons: "We left an iPad on board in Copenhagen and found that there was no way to inform SAS!"
Cons: "No individual seat control of airflow. The plane was very warm and there were no vents at each seat."
Pros: "All of it."
Cons: "None of it."
Pros: "Thanks to COVID, minimal service"
Cons: "A cup of tea about $7.00. Can it be better. Certainly"
Cons: "Flight was delayed once we had boarded, so we had to sit at the gate for about 2 hours, which was not the crew's fault of course, however, they could have offered drinks. Once we finally got in the air, they only offered purchasable snacks in a way that was confusing--and did not even come through the cabin with complimentary drinks. Given the circumstances, and the fact the time in our seats was extended by over two hours, there could have been some better service from the actual flight attendants. It should have been clearly stated at the beginning of the flight, and once more when we were in the air, that no complimentary drinks were going to be handed out, and if we wanted anything, we would need to purchase it. I wouldn't have minded purchasing if I had known that was my only option."
Pros: "Quick boarding and departed on time."
Cons: "Everything else. Air Lingus is like Ryan Air with an Irish accent. No space, terrible food, very low quality entertainment system with the sound muffled and barely audible."
Cons: "Many people missed their connection at Dublin. I had a horrible ~6hr wait. Aer Lingus did nothing to help or compensate."
Pros: "Out of my four flights with Aer LIngus, this leg of my trip that both left and arrived on time. It is sad, that when landing they had to say thank you for flying another on time Aer LIngus flight. Makes me wonder how often are you not on time? My experience says 75% of the time your late."
Cons: "First off, don't try charging me 150 euros to check my bags when I already paid for it at booking. Then who charges for 2,50 for a can soda on an air plane? Lastly, I'm 6'4" and the seats were so close there was no way to sit without my knees pressed into the seat in front of me."
Pros: "Good food"
Cons: "We arrived late to Dublin because of weather and we’re going to miss our connection to Leeds so they rerouted us via Manchester but our bags, though tagged “Rush” did not make it on the new flight and we were without them for five days! we still had to get to Leeds so we had to pay for train tickets"
Cons: "The airline charged for luggage at airport check in."
Pros: "Crew was amazing. Polite and friendly."
Cons: "Seats were not very comfortable and there wasn’t any room to put things in the space under the tray table. Food was below average."
Pros: "Yes"
Cons: "Dublin airport No suitcase when we arrived No food. No inflight entertainment"
Cons: "Dublin airport - huge lines foe transfers"
Cons: "No TV on board and you had to pay for a glass of water"
Pros: "Ontime"
Cons: "Food alright"
Pros: "N/a"
Pros: "Boarding was quick and easy. The flight staff was friendly and efficient"
Cons: "Food was not good. The plane arrived late, as a result we missed our connecting flight."
Pros: "NO SECURITY CHECK FOR INBOUND FLIGHTS. What a relief!"
Cons: "Cramped rickety stairs, up & down to Passport control. In flight service non-existent. Tepid coffee at absurd $4.50!"
Pros: "very friendly staff"
Pros: "The plane was clean and comfortable, the crew was friendly"
Cons: "Having to pay for coffee and soda is something I would expect from a budget airline and not a major carrier"
Cons: "This was not a British Airways flight. They should have done a better job of communicating that. I wasn't informed until I tried to check in online 24 hours before my flight."
Pros: "Check in was great. On board crew was excellent and very attentive. Many offerings of drinks and food."
Cons: "Boarding was chaotic, free for all situation. Signage could have been better at the gate. One of the TV viewers/overhead lights didn’t work for our party. There was a large chatty group of people that were milling around, standing in aisle, talking loudly for much of the flight. I understand that there is only so much the crew could do about that."
Cons: "I had a 5 hour delay. I had to cancel the trip"
Pros: "Plane, crew"
Cons: "Boarding agent took too long to load the plane which caused a delay which ultimately had us miss our connecting flight Didn't like that Aer Lingus didn't wait for us at Dublin when they knew we were going to be a few minutes late"
Pros: "Almost everything was good. Friendly crew, easy boarding, safe flight even with lots of air gusts (thanks to the pilots!)."
Cons: "Whatever fare Kayak provided was the worst seat (last row next to bathrooms). I wouldn't book through Kayak again and instead would go through the airline directly."
Cons: "Airplane was late 90 mins"
Pros: "Blankets and earphones provided."
Cons: "Couldn’t checkin at British Airways; there needs to be better signage at desk. Flight was delayed and we almost missed connection. Seat would not tilt back."
Pros: "1. Friendly staff 2. Good food on the plane"
Cons: "The cost of luggage - unfreaking real to have to pay for first suit case when flying overseas and they at a cost of $100 per item!!! Definitely not recommending this airline to my friends unless they are only taking carry-on luggage. The cabin room was more cramped then usual also but it was ok."
Pros: "Friendly and practical no complaints"
Pros: "The crew were very professional and courteous"
Cons: "No USB ports and no way to plug in one's personal earbuds. Sounds quality on the airline supplied earbuds was horrible. Gave up on the entertainment offerings and watched movies I had stored on my iPad. And really the worst food I've ever had on a flight."
Cons: "The most uncomfortable plane that I have travelled on. Seat - unbearably uncomfortable. Toilet falling apart, parts of seats falling off."
Pros: "Boarding made sense. They boarded the back of the plane first. Kudos for that."
Cons: "The seat cushions were nonexistent. Less legroom than a mini backseat and no way to upgrade since I purchased on kayak...unless I was willing to pay $4000 more to get premium coach seats. Will not use kayak again."
Pros: "The flight attendants were very cheerful."
Cons: "We were delayed on the tarmac for almost an hour due to a storm at AMS. Then delayed further in AMS waiting for a gate. Not the airlines fault though. They are one of the few major European airlines that don't serve free food."
Pros: "Seats and service was excellent. Flight was on time and very organized."
Cons: "Nothing"
Cons: "I bought a BA flight because I am oneworld premium member. However, I learnt the flight was operated by Aer Lingus after I bought the ticket and I had no benefits."
Pros: "Flight delayed 2 hrs - missed connection, small seats/aisles."
Cons: "Crew was nice."
Pros: "Goo entertainment on Dulles Dublin sector."
Cons: "It would help if ba would hilight fact that this is a code share with are linguistic. Seat were unbelievably small and had to walk to ends of earth for both the gate in Dulles and Dublin. No free food or drink on Dublin madrid sector but thankfully not full so I could stretch out. New planes on both sectors."
Pros: "Flight made great time! Boeing 757 was disappointing as it felt extremely crowded."
Cons: "Flight attendants were not very friendly or helpful (except the one in first class that help us out when needed). Never was asked for additional beverage and no extra with dinner."
Pros: "check in was efficient."
Cons: "purchase of beverages; lack of understanding food schedule"
Cons: "this flight was unnecessarily delayed. it was possible to have an earlier connection"
Pros: "Crew on board were very nice and very helpful.Apart from that I am struggling to see how this is a 4 star airline. It's a joke"
Cons: "AerLingus use a Boeing757 on this route and the seats are old, uncomfortable and many have dips in them.The entertainment system is ancient and had limited stuff on it. The food was as bad as airplane food gets. The 'beef' Shepard pie was lumpy and over salted. Also you must pay for beer and wine on this 4 star airline. They use "smart flies aer Lingus " as their advert tag line. In my opinion smart flies someone else"
Pros: "The in-flight experience and service."
Cons: "The fact that my luggage did not initially transfer from the first leg of my trip to the second leg of my trip. I received my luggage by the end of the day, but it was somewhat inconvenient to not have a lot of my personal effects for several hours."
Cons: "Guy at check in was rude and insulting and my bag didn't arrive."
Pros: "Speed of boarding from both the gate crew and the cabin staff. At that hour of the morning the last thing you want is hassle when boarding."
Cons: "It's a very very early morning flight."
Pros: "The comfort of the plane was great compared to Ryan air"
Cons: "I don't like that I must travel to Dublin from cork to fly to Amsterdam for a cheaper flight"
Cons: "The air conditioning was too cold. I had to put on lots of layers of clothes and I was still cold."
Pros: "The flight attendants were friendly and helpful. We appreciated being able to preorder better meals. Good selection of in-air movies. Sitting anywhere for almost 7 hours is no fun but it could have been much worse."
Cons: "Small seats. My tray table wouldn't stay up."
Cons: "Added 12 hours to my trip and had to rebook on another airline for the second leg. The crew was unapologetic after sitting on the tarmac for three hours. Terrible airline"
Cons: "You can't get a seat assignment until you check in at the airport. I ended up in the very back row, right in front of the galley for a 7 hour flight. No sleep for me."
Cons: "My luggage didn't arrive to Amsterdam. I wasn't offered any assistance and I had to wait a day to receive my luggage! My flight was an early flight so it,ales not sense why it wasn't brought to the same day"
Cons: "You lost my luggage with my dead mother's paintings."
Cons: "Flight was delayed by 30 mins"
Pros: "The seat was good and the service was spot on"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Crew was courteous and helpful. Boarding was good. Planes were on time."
Cons: "Planes rented and old. Pilots not as familiar with plane; interior deteriorating; seats too narrow; three men in a row had too broad shoulders to fit (could be easily fixed); under seat space dividers offset so not clear feet nor luggage space; whole plane smelled terrible— tone down fragrance"
Cons: "On both flights the crew was not very friendly of helpful. No good, Except a tiny bit for the kids on a second shorter flight. And we had to pay for Wi-Fi, 12 whole dollars! A real rip off. We’ll never do Iceland air again"
Pros: "It was on time"
Cons: "Providing food/meals would be good"
Pros: "Crew was great"
Cons: "My video screen did not work well"
Pros: "Nice clean plane, more roomy plane than first flight from Toronto"
Cons: "Got email night before that flight had cancelled or changed. Ended up on a flight on United. Got to my destination as scheduled."
Pros: "Larger plane with more room"
Cons: "Boarding was a mess, no rows called; no one at the help desk."
Pros: "We made great time and it was a short flight. Entertainment options were wonderful."
Cons: "Still felt the seats are too small. Foot room is not really enough. Can’t fit my carry on under the seat."
Pros: "Departure from Reykjavik was delayed by about 15 minutes. The flught was not full so I had a spare seat next to mine to stretch s bit"
Cons: "More communication on delays would rsse strees on passengers"
Cons: "I thought it was quite cold during the flight."
Pros: "Nothing to add, all as expected."
Pros: "So much more legroom than I'm used to for a budget flight! I was so comfortable and there were plenty of options to keep me entertained on the flight."
Cons: "Boarding was a little chaotic and food/wifi was expensive, but would definitely book them again!"
Cons: "Overhead bins too shallow. Seating cramped."
Cons: "Had to call the 1800 number before my flight. I was on hold for over 2 hours, literally. Obvious that this company does not care about customer service."
Pros: "Friendly flight attendants."
Cons: "No space under the seat in front of me. Very little leg room. The airport gate was chaos."
Pros: "Direct flight"
Cons: "There is only a serve of drink, headset need to pay"
Pros: "They were on time"
Cons: "They forced us to check a bag that we did not need to check for the first flight, and they ultimately lost the bag at our destination. Did not receive the bag for 12 hours after we landed. They also had us boarding outside exposed to freezing rain and wind for 10+ minutes. No organization tot he boarding process, it was a free for all. People were getting soaked and frustrated."
Pros: "The plane was very nice and comfortable."
Cons: "The airline didn't serve any food. I'm a female at 5'7" and the leg room was a little tight"
Pros: "Comfortable"
Cons: "No food, 3 hpur flight"
Cons: "Same as above"
Pros: "The short lay over"
Cons: "Boarding and then having to wait for 40 minutes on the runway"
Pros: "They did not even provide snacks on the plan. This was okay, but wasn't aware of this. I also LOVED that if no one is sitting next to you, you can move the arm rest to provide more space."
Pros: "I'm a European tour and booked a flight from Reykjavik to Amsterdam, I received an email to make an offer to upgrade and I quickly jumped at the chance. I received an email 2 days prior to departure that my offer was excepted and I would be upgraded to economy comfort. Economy comfort is between First Classe and economy and the cool thing about it is that you get treated as if he had a first class ticket. I had access to the lounge which was amazing, the spread out was wonderful he sat in the choices plentiful. Reykjavik is a small airport therefore it's a busy airport, what do you economy comfort I was able to use the saga class lane and I checked in less than five minutes whereas the regular lane was backed up. I was able to board along with first-class passengers and the lane was short which I love. Overall it was a great experience and Icelandair will make you a trip even better if you fly with them first class or economy comfort. I highly recommend them and I am definitely flying with them again."
Cons: "The breakfast menu was limited but since I had the economy comfort upgrade,it was free so I can't really complain since I had the economy comfort upgrade."
Pros: "Crew was very nice and efficient"
Cons: "No TV or wifi or USB plug-in, no air over seat. That was a drag. There is no food on this flight, not even for purchase"
Pros: "Yearp"
Cons: "Yearp"
Pros: "No issues."
Cons: "No issues."
Pros: "For the money it was pretty good. Things ran on time, getting on the plane on the tarmac was a new experience for me, as I've never been to an airport as small. That was a bonus tho, being small it was really easy to navigate!"
Cons: "The seats were rather uncomfortable, seemed like an older plane and the cushions didn't have much padding left in them. There was also a ridiculously loud and drunk group of folks that sat right next to us. The staff didn't seem to think their behaviour was disruptful. Most of the stewardesses seemed to be really freindly towards them even though it was fairly obvious that they were really loud and getting really loaded. Don't get me wrong, I appreciate a party, but not on an airplane with next to no space. My partner got a view of a man's behind the almost the whole flight as they he was standing the aisle for most of the trip. Just seemed a bit strange to let the group go through what appeared to be cases of beer that they brought on."
Cons: "No leg room, two bathrooms not working"
Cons: "Lost my luggage."
Cons: "No food on flight"
Pros: "Flight in Saga Class was excellent."
Cons: "Bus from boarding area to plane was not the best experience --- like LHR 40 years ago. Also, my checked bag apparently did not get transferred at KEF."
Cons: "Never got to Reykjavic"
Pros: "I greatly appreciate that this connecting flight waited for me since my first flight had been delayed. The crew was very friendly and helpful. Same great free movies and TV shows offered on all flights. Also free check in if 2 bags is great (didn't use it this time but I have before)"
Cons: "I again am very disappointed that Icelandair no longer provides complimentary meals for their trans-Atlantic flights. I believe it greatly decreases the overall quality of the flight experience."
Pros: "Seat is comfortable , nice blanket"
Cons: "Super old movie, no food include"
Pros: "Staff was friendly and accommodating, new flight was booked immediately after being cancelled"
Cons: "Our flight was cancelled, missing our 10+ layover in Iceland and trip to the blue lagoon. We missed arriving to Amsterdam for our friends birthday and ended up getting there the next day. The most dissappointing and quite frankly ridiculous part was that after being on hold for 2 hours Iceland air refused to upgrade our seats to first class after such a huge inconvenience. We boarded the plane and the entire first class portion of the flight empty!! This makes zero sense to me. Iceland air should seriously reconsider their upgrade policies. They would rather have first class be empty than make their customers happy! We were even willing to pay extra."
Pros: "Leg room was adequate and crew were generally helpful and friendly."
Cons: "Crew not showing up for flight until a few minutes before it was expected to depart. Lack of communication to travelers about a jet bridge problem. No attempt to make up lost time when the flight left an hour late (happened twice on the same trip)."
Pros: "This flight was better. It was quicker and the staff were helpful and more friendly."
Cons: "The entertainment on this flight was limited. Also there was no organization to the boarding process, everyone just boarded randomly at the same time."
Cons: "No sign for business/economy at gate."
Pros: "Leg room again was spacious."
Cons: "Everything just about!!! They were delayed by two hours twice, they took off an hour late as well, then baggage took over and hour to come out after arriving at my destination. The seats are supper in comfortable I couldn't fall asleep and my back hurt so bad. I was offered no food or drink my whole flight."
Pros: "Plane wasn't full, had a little room to move!"
Pros: "The plane was new which meant new entertainment system and seats."
Cons: "It took over 30 minutes for our luggage to arrive on the conveyor belt."
Cons: "We had an 8 hour layover due to missing our connection."
Pros: "Mostly on time"
Cons: "No food or drink amenities"
Pros: "It was great to have free drinks but food is also nice. Be prepared to pay for your food or bring along something for the ride."
Cons: "No food included in the price of the ticket."
Cons: "Plane time delayed 30 minutes and on top of that once they opened the gate there were still long waits and a shuttle that needed to be taken to plane. Plane was boarded and took off later than expected and landed at final destination later than expected. Overall, both flights included, it was a very painful first experience using iceland air."
Pros: "The crew was polite and helpful!"
Cons: "The seats were stiff and somewhat uncomfortable."
Cons: "We had to wait 7 hours to take this flight. So after 7 hours... WE BOARD 1 HOUR LATE. Are you kidding me? This seems to happen with all IcelandAir flights. We were boarding late because we had to wait for the arriving passengers to walk through the gate first. I guess there is not enough room for people to walk in and out at the same time. Then we had to take a bus to the plan."
Cons: "Lines and more lines. Little to no information to travelers. Reykjavik airport very disorganized."
Cons: "Our suitcases got lost and there was an hour and a half delay on this flight"
