Cons: "THE FOOD WAS ADEQUATE, GIVEN THAT WE WERE ON AN AIRPLANE"

Pros: "The crew was terrific and friendly as I expected."
Cons: "I have no other suggestions here since I'm pleased with the flight and services."

Pros: "most of the flight attendants were excellent except one particular one who was basically yelling at passengers. she had a a logo or a badage on her that identifies her as a manager or a crew lead. she had poor manners and need major improvement"
Cons: "the seats are small and very small space in comparison to Lufthansa"

Pros: "I thought my out flight with Lufthansa would be good but it was surpassed by the return flight with Swiss Based on my experience I believe Swiss should be a 5 star airline as well"
Cons: "A slight delay"

Pros: "Reliable, modern cabin, nice crew"
Cons: "Some more music choices would be nice"

Pros: "-"
Cons: "Old plane, rude crew, checked bag was not included in price. I did fly Swiss to LA last year and it was amazing, i don’t know what happened since."

Pros: "Very kind crew. Great food. Nice leg room even for economy."
Cons: "This was one of the most empty flights I’ve ever been on. With that, lots of room for carry on baggage. I fail to see why it was necessary at all. It delayed my journey when time was of the essence."

Pros: "The crew was so friendly and professional, on top of the nice plane condition, which made the trip very pleasant!"
Cons: "The food standard seemed to be lowered a little bit, but still very well prepared."

Pros: "787 is an excellent plane and I could sleep a little"
Cons: "I was boarding at gate C4. Doesn't anyone get it ! Using the word "bomb" in airports is a big no-no however C4 is OK? Even a little old lady knows what C4 stands for."

Pros: "All very comfortable"
Cons: "It was delayed"

Pros: "Everyone was so nice!"
Cons: "There was nothing I didn’t like."

Pros: "Very Pleasant Staff!"

Pros: "Clear, relatively comfortable plane. Free ski bag."
Cons: "Again, incredibly unhelpful re: my unusual situation. Flight attendants rigid and unkind to the woman next to me with a dog in a case. Almost like automatons. But that's typically Swiss, which I appreciate but they could definitely humanize a bit more!"

Pros: "The flight itself was very enjoyable. The only negative aspect was that the first leg of the flight was delayed long enough that I almost missed my connecting flight and my baggage was lost."
Cons: "The real reason for the negative review is a combination of the cost of this flight, loss of my baggage and poor service after the flight. I paid nearly $4,500 for an economy ticket from New York to New Delhi. The first leg of the flight, from New York to Zurich was delayed long enough that I made my connecting flight to Delhi within seconds of them closing the gate and as a result my baggage was lost. Once I got to Delhi I had to take a connecting flight to Goa and then drive an hour to my destination, where I was attending a good friend's wedding. All of my baggage was lost during transit by the airline, and unfortunately they never delivered by baggage to my hotel...so I was without formal clothes and normal clothes for the wedding for 4 days. The customer service line was no help, and the airline refused to deliver the baggage to me...the closest they would bring it was the Goa airport which was an hour and a half away."

Cons: "The boarding process is very uncomfortable as the passengers are asked to board the plane without any specific order, regardless of where they’re sitting, instead of boarding them by groups."

Pros: "Service was great with staff being very professional Flights were on time and entertainment selections were good."

Pros: "Friendly staff"

Pros: "Food great!"
Cons: "Limited space , very narrow and not very clean. I seated next to a dog, pet. The whole trip the dog was sitting on the floor next to me:(, although it was a very quiet and good dog. Crew not very friendly . They were tired I believe ."

Pros: "Everything!! This airline is a huge breath of fresh (old?) air. It reminded me of how air travel used to be. No baggage charge - we only checked one bag. There was plenty of great food and drink - alcoholic drinks were free. We will definitely look to use SwissAir whenever possible."

Cons: "Very narrow seats. Seat in front reclines in your face. Terrible experience for 100% full long haul flight from LAX to ZRH"

Cons: "Swiss staff was not helpful at all at Zurich airport. I wanted to purchase a day pass in the Business class lounge. They said i could do that but need to do it online. When I couldn't get my device to bring up the right screen they said they couldn't help me. Bad customerbaervixe"

Pros: "Very comfortable seats for coach, good service."

Pros: "zurich a great airport."
Cons: "cheese roll"

Pros: "EVERYTHING'S Good to come back home"

Pros: "We were very pleased with our flight on Swiss Air."

Cons: "person behind me wouldn't allow my seat to recline and was constantly pushing/kicking my seat. I notified crew, but nothing was done about it."

Cons: "100% of our checked luggage was lost and two days into our one week biking trip in Sweden we have heard NOTHING from Swiss Air. No knowledge of where the four large bags are, no follow up and no help. Basically, we have been left with biking clothing and little hope that our bags will show up before we leave Sweden. Unacceptable and we will NEVER fly this airlines again."

Pros: "Can't think of anything we didn't like. All the attendants were very nice, always smiling and helpful. It was great, will fly with Swiss again for sure."
Cons: "Can't think of anything."

Cons: "Delayed boarding due to overheated plane, when we did board it was still warm and we had to sit longer due to other mechanical issues. Wish they would have waited for all issues to be resolved before boarding."

Cons: "I wasn't on it so I wouldn't know."

Pros: "Time of flight"
Cons: "Food and entertainment were not good. Person next to me smelled bad"

Pros: "Good people."
Cons: "Bad food."

Pros: "Swiss planes were clean and everything worked. Flight attendants very friendly. Food was superb. Plus, the connection in Zurich, as always, was seamless and painless. Will definitely give Swiss my preference when looking at trans Atlantic flights."
Cons: "Nothing."

Pros: "Service, slot"
Cons: "Distance to gate"

Cons: "The delay at the airport"

Pros: "The entertainment system"
Cons: "Direct answer is "nothing"; however, it should be noted that this not a Swiss Air flight. It was a code share on a United Airlines flight."

Pros: "Direct flight"
Cons: "3 hour delay Noisy cabin due to loud engines One could hardly heard the movie audio from the Headphones during movie viewing even after they were replaced"

Pros: "Crew was friendly and made a bad situation as comfortable as possible."
Cons: "The flight was delayed for almost 3 hours for a issue with the pilot's chair. The movies reset in the middle of the showing."

Pros: "Courteous crew, good food."
Cons: "The beer selection could use some work."

Pros: "Overall service was excellent and staff was courteous and helpful."
Cons: "None"

Pros: "First leg was on United (codeshare) 767. The seat pitch on that version was good, even for a tsix-footer. The flight was almost empty, so there was plenty of room to stretch across seats and sleep. In order to avoid dairy, I order kosher meals - and the quality was OK. The cabin crew was nice to start with, and very relaxed and friendly as the flight progressed because of the low-stress service for so few passengers."
Cons: "No complaints."

Pros: "I have nice trip"
Cons: "I like everything excellent"

Pros: "Great service and comfortable ride excellent staff"
Cons: "Cannot expect better service"

Pros: "Most of it was of a reasonable standard."
Cons: "Plane was full"

Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "The crew was maybe average, that was still the best point."
Cons: "Extremely tight space. The food was almost inedible. Awful."

Pros: "The crew were very attentive, they tried hard to help me with comfort, drinks etc. I didnt have food as it was so good in the Virgin Clubhouse!"
Cons: "The bed! When you flip it flat its rock hard, and the matress they provide is useless! Need foam matress to really make it more comfotable. If the seat reclined another few inches i wouldnt bother flipping it."

Pros: "I like the professional approach of the airline and the staff. Seats are really comfortable and i did not need my sleeping pillow at all as the headrest of my seat was already so comfortable."
Cons: "There is not much which i did not like about this airline. Just like other airlines, now have started feeling that Economy class travellers are being approached with bit biased approach in hospitality though they have major contribution in meeting flight running expenses. All airlines should start considering this fact and improve the overall approach."

Pros: "The airplane was quiet My seat did not recline, but was seated in a different place where the seat reclined Bathrooms were clean and plenty"
Cons: "The remote controls for the entertainment system That you can’t reach the vents when you have to be buckled"

Pros: "A smoothtrip run by great staff."
Cons: "Thé food was rather stodgy overall."

Pros: "Virgin Atlantic offers good service at a reasonable price to/from the US to London. Good food service and unbelieveable number of movies and entertainment to choose from."
Cons: "The seating and leg room in economy classic were inadequate. We felt way too confined in our seats and the leg room was a joke. I am only 6' tall and this was unacceptable. We will try to upgrade for the return trip."

Pros: "Top glass airline"
Cons: "I lake food and good service crew"

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: "Staff on this flight were excellent"

Pros: "Great, friendly, professional crew, clean comfortable plane. Loved that full dinner and baggage and wine was included in an economy class overnight from DC to London as well as breakfast. Best flight in a long time, will definitely fly again."
Cons: "the tv screen's touch screen capabilities could use an upgrade, it was a hassle to navigate, not very sensitive to touch."

Cons: "The plane seemed to be a little bit old, especially entertaining equipment"

Pros: "Nothing. The whole experience was horrible."
Cons: "I didn't make it to Siem Reap because the first leg of the trip from IAD to London was cancelled by Virgin Atlantic after it was fully boarded. The excuse was that a flight attendant had food poisoning and was unable to fly and so the entire flight was cancelled. The Virgin team seemed unconcerned and showed NO sense of urgency to try and get people rebooked. Their solution was to rebook everyone on an evening flight the next day. If a passenger was only going to London, that was probably fine. But for people with connecting flights -- or like me with multiple connecting flights -- that wasn't acceptable."

Pros: "Overall comfortable journey"
Cons: "No option to book food option 24 hours before as could check in could not been done earlier than 24 hours before flight. I logged exactly 24 hrs before filled in details which took a few minutes by that time said too late to book special meal."

Pros: "Service"
Cons: "Seats in economy are way to small and very uncomfortable if tall. Too close to the seats in front of you. I was miserable all the way to London."

Pros: "Even it was a 12-13hrs flight, I had been my best flight ever in a long flight. Virgin really exeeced my expectations."

Pros: "Efficient, friendly, on-time!"

Pros: "Seat is very comfortable"

Pros: "From the check in to the service on board was very good. Staff were polite and respectful."
Cons: "The food was small. There did not serve bread with the meal"

Pros: "Everything!"

Cons: "One toilet not working"

Pros: "Nothing because I was given a middle seat"
Cons: "6'4 and I get a middle seat.."

Pros: "Food"
Cons: "Seat reclining happens even during meal time and landing! I had to ask crew to get passenger in front to put seat back upright during meal time!!! Crew should've noticed themselves and ask the passenger without my prompting!! So annoyed!! I complained to VA too"

Pros: "From check in to landing in London, the gracious, helpful crew impressed us with their attitude and service"
Cons: "Sound didn't work on some of the entertainment choices"

Pros: "The food was surprisingly ok and the seats in PE were comfortable, plus there were two USB ports, perfect!"
Cons: "Being woken up to be asked if I wanted to eat, twice! If I wanted to eat, I wouldn't have a sleeping mask on my face, or be asleep! Plus, upper class and premium economy didn't board first."

Pros: "On time, everything normal."
Cons: "Seat space so small that my knees were up against the next seat, even without it tilting back."

Pros: "They were were very kind and helpful to all passengers"

Pros: "Genuinely pleasant cabin crew, good service, good food."
Cons: "Virgin Upper Class seats are cramped, with very limited stowage space. Turning the seat into a lay flat bed (and returning it seat at the end of the flight) takes some effort--not the simplest of processes. I'm not tall, but my feet protruded into the aisle so I was being disturbed whilst sleeping. Seat is also quite narrow--feels quite claustrophobic when sleeping."

Pros: "Still a more pleasant experience than BA but others have overtaken. Crew make a difference though."
Cons: "Limo service wasn't great in China - asked for address of hotel - a major international chain and confusion on booking details"

Pros: "The boarding and the overall flight experience was quite good."
Cons: "There were movie options such as Sully and Deepwater Horizon, which I think are unsuitable for flights. Overall, the movie options could have had more variety."

Pros: "Smiling and helpful staff Great FREE food and drinks good movies Free goodie bag of travel goods, blanket, pillow etc Free candy for landing descent"
Cons: "Leg room is a little tight"

Pros: "The crew,food and entertainment the food has improved, the ground and flight staffs was very pleasant and helpful"
Cons: "We were flying to Miami, then into a cruise,weighs restrictions,we were find a100 dollars for a couple more kg, we were on holiday for nearly three weeks"

Cons: "Crew"

Pros: "The crew left my breakfast in the sear next to me because I was asleep (unfortunately i didn't notice till I started to disembark...)"
Cons: "I couldn't get comfortable enough to sleep very well, even though I was in a window seat (which I can normally lean on)."

Pros: "Everything except the plane itself"
Cons: "Plane cramped"

Pros: "Mostly everything was fine."
Cons: "Not really anything particularly that I didn't like."

Pros: "It was a great experince we enjoy the flight other than the delay on the luggage"
Cons: "one of my luggage was lost and delayed for 2hrs. We waited at the Airport for the luggage to arrive."

Pros: "I loved wine and whiskey. Blanket and blindfolds, headphones helped me sleep. Care packet with toothbrush came in handy."
Cons: "The Sears were tight and thin. I felt pushes from behind. I could not recline the seat enough. I didn't get a window seat, which is my favorite."

Pros: "We were late arriving at the airport and the checkin desk people were SO nice putting us through. Otherwise we never would have made it on the flight. Also the extra legroom seats were well worth it!"
Cons: "Nothing!"

Pros: "Staff excellent - Inflight screen useful."
Cons: "Could not do online Check in - apparently as there were 4 separate legs on my Ticket."

Pros: "At JFK the lounge and service was the best I have encountered."

Pros: "Everything on-board was awesome...Great job guys!!!"

Pros: "nothing"
Cons: "My ticket was cancelled at the time I was standing in front of the airline counter to check my bag. I was so furious. The airline did not help me at ALL. In fact, they offer me to buy a brand new ticket at a new price!!!!!! I ended up re-bought the ticket from United airline as my husband has United card (chase) and we ended up paying over 1900 for the ticket that should have been about $911. The priceline number is not helping. I have trip insurance but no. nothing worked. I will never fly Virgin Atlantic again."

Pros: "Pleasant, helpful staff at check-in and on flight"

Cons: "My luggage didn't arrive at my destination until 2 days after I did. And after I checked my luggage, a leather satchel was stolen from my suitcase. I reported the theft to Virgin Atlantic and requested a report nearly a week ago and have heard nothing back. I am usually careful about packing luggage, and did not think the leather satchel would attract a thief working for the airline, but I will not make that mistake again! DO NOT TRUST VIRGIN TO HANDLE LUGGAGE."

Pros: "Food was great. Complimentary wine a nice touch."
Cons: "The leg room was so short. There would be no way to do the safe landing positions. and the head rest forces your head forward. Very uncomfortable."

Pros: "Pleasant crew, quick boarding."
Cons: "Late departure, late arrival due to a plane at our gate. Very poor quality media systems, cramped, inconsiderate passenger next to me taking up more room than necessary. Cramped."

Cons: "Layout of seats is not very social when traveling with partner in business class."

Pros: "Crew from Washington to Cancún were extremely rude"
Cons: "Smile"

Cons: "3 1/2 hr delay"

Pros: "Dinner was great"

Pros: "Crew and service was amazing"
Cons: "Paid $28 for internet and it didn’t work"

Pros: "Crew was amazing"
Cons: "Food could have been better, seat was uncomfortable."

Pros: "Crew, food, flight."
Cons: "Could always use a wider seat. I just hate having my hips touching a stranger for the whole trip."

Cons: "Plane was late taking off. Crew did not provide water when requested. They were busy with beverages that they could sell at a cost."

Cons: "Wonderful"

Pros: "Entertainment was awesome. Although airlines are stingy with snacks, Delta had a good overall selection and very generous."
Cons: "Something that cant be changed overnight, however, there should be a little more Aisle space for folks pass through as my shoulder was getting beat up after every passing person and cart."

Pros: "Crew was friendly."
Cons: "Wish the seat was more comfortable. Landing was jittery and bumpy."

Cons: "Best option across the pond"

Cons: "Seats hardly recline. Very difficult to sleep in this red eye flight."

Pros: "Some of the crew members talked loudly in the galley all night long. Mostly gossiping and complaining. We had the last seats next to the galley, so it was frustrating to not have quiet and be able to sleep. This was a flight run by Delta for Air France."
Cons: "The food was horrible."

Pros: "The flight attendant from IAD to MSP called Bernadette was wonderful!"

Cons: "Delayed"

Pros: "Super comfortable seats. Lots of movie options."
Cons: "Food was not very good"

Pros: "Lisa @ the Boston Delta check-in counter is AMAZING! She's super helpful and essentially saved our vacation! Her coworkers say she's the best and I couldn't agree more! Delta is very lucky to have someone like Lisa on their team!"
Cons: "Nothing to complain about! If I really head to be picky maybe the in-flight meals were smaller than I expected. But again, nothing that bothered me"

Cons: "Noise in cabin unable to sleep"

Pros: "Standard Air France flight. My wife and I like the Airbus 380."
Cons: "The flight left two hours late. Apparently this happens a lot with this flight these days because it's an Airbus 380 coming from Paris to Dulles and turning around. The incoming flight was two hours late, so the departure was late. Our arrival in Paris was late. We made the flight, but our luggage didn't. Our return flight from Paris to Dulles was half an hour late because of people from connecting flights. We arrived about 30 minutes late, but no big deal (unless you had a connection)"

Pros: "Fly attenden alwas with a beautiful smile"

Pros: "Nothing particularly stands out. I did arrive safely."
Cons: "First class did not come with lounge access? Drinks were not cold. Bathrooms were falling apart and came with a disgusting odor. Time to retire these aircrafts."

Pros: "The plane left on time if not a bit early."
Cons: "With the exception of 1 really nice flight attendant all the others were extremely moody and not helpful. I didn’t see one of them smile through the whole flight like they were just going through the motions. I’ve worked in jobs where you have to deal with the general public but you have a job to do and must smile and do your best to be helpful. I felt intimidated to even ask for anything like I was wasting their time. I love flying Delta and this was my worst experience yet."

Pros: "Flight attendants were nice based on the situations beyond their control."
Cons: "Flight was delayed for about three hours, due to mechanical issues with the second engine not starting. We sat on the the plane for over an hour and half. Some people that missed their connection flights were offered hotel stay. Others that had no connection flight was not offered anything for the several hours of delay that occurred."

Cons: "Tv"

Pros: "That I landed safely"
Cons: "1st class was horrible."

Pros: "The staff"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Great and friendly crew"
Cons: "baggage rules, check in with baggage, change fee for flight when it was not customers issue that caused the 5 min delay! Unable to reach reservation desk on line or via phone (neither was the gate agent)"

Pros: "Great service throughout. Friendly attendants and easy boarding/deboarding processes. Would fly international with them again in a heart beat."

Pros: "Quick and easy boarding. Quick flight"
Cons: "Audio entertainment quite limited"

Pros: "Food good, wine OK"
Cons: "Discomfort bad"

Pros: "Space looked a bit cramped in business class but I was pleasantly surprised at the length of the flat bed and the additional foot well space once I'd reclined the seat."
Cons: "Need to fix the flickering lights in the JFK club lounge, the opposite of relaxing!"

Cons: "Price to get a little more space"

Pros: "Crew was very helpful."
Cons: "Food was terrible and check in can be more organized."

Cons: "Delayed two hours"

Pros: "I booked via Kayak using Virgin Atlantic shared out to Delta. Check was confusing as both airlines used different flight numbers. When I went to check in with Virgin Atlantic they told me to go to Delta. When I went to Delta they told me to go back to Virgin Atlantic. I wound up checking in with Virgin Atlantic. Everyone was very polite but check in was confusing. Everything else was wonderful. Cutomer service was great from beginning to end."
Cons: "Check in."

Pros: "Got to my placs"
Cons: "Lol put the two fattest people next to each other"

Pros: "More seat room than expected for economy tickets. Good service, on time, polite staff"
Cons: "Duty free purchases not waiting for us at boarding like usual. Audio selection on entertainment was v poor"

Pros: "The fact that there were no snakes on this plane :-)"
Cons: "Same issue... there were no snakes on the plane :-/"

Pros: "Delta has a pretty good entertainment system. Lots of movies to watch and the system works well."
Cons: "Seats are very tight and uncomfortable. The food was horrible. Tasted like a $1 frozen meal that was microwaved til mushy. It was chicken but I couldn't tell you more. And flight attendant helpfully described it as 'chicken'. Breakfast was a cold roll, a piece of cheese and some awful yogurt. This was the most unbearable 8.5 hours of my life."

Pros: "Crew were good, flight on time, free drinks"
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "There delay"

Pros: "Thomas our steward was excellent."

Cons: "I didnt like that my flight was canceled and rebooked for no reason. This created me big problem in Athens that they couldnt find my ticket in delta. Also I didnt like that i had to stand and wait for 3 hours in the line because my flight was canceled but no one could let us know if there gonna be any flights within the day. I slept in the airport because i couldnt find a hotel to spend the night close to the airport. They were all full and i had no time to find one since I was waiting there for 3 hours with no informational. I slept on the floor and delta didnt even offer us a blanket. That was my worst trip ever."

Pros: "The flight was smooth and the food selection was surprising delicious. The crew was very attentive."
Cons: "The leg room was much less than the last time I flew Virgin (booked via Delta) and made for an uncomfortable trip. Could not sleep as a result. If you're tall like me you'll need to book a higher seating category."

Pros: "Everything that British Airways tried to do to help us when Delta didn't want to take ownership for their screwups!"
Cons: "Not only did we miss our Delta connection but when Delta rebooked us on a British Airways flight they refused to help when British Airways could not access our tickets. they kept saying since it was Virigin Atlantic who we originally booked through that VA woulkd have to fix it, even thought Delta was the actual carrier and the ones that did the rebooking onto the British Airways flight"

Pros: "Everything was great"
Cons: "Nothing everything was fine"

Pros: "Everything was just right"

Pros: "On my ticket it clearly indicate that I am entitled to 2 check in baggage. Delta completely refused to honor this. They said am only entitled 1 piece, and therefore I have to pay for the other luggage. I was forced to borough money from someone at the airport just so that I could board the flight."
Cons: "I am asking that my money be refunded. And next time delta should honor and respect agreements. And be more professional"

Cons: "The food was supposed to be hot chicken was served cold"

Cons: "It was Delta not Virgin"

Pros: "Great staff , amazing dinner, and the entertainment screen size was best"
Cons: "Seats could be a little bigger"

Cons: "Frankfurt connecting flights, security, and Passport control are terribly inefficient, with unclear guides to get passengers from B gates to A gates."

Cons: "Food poor going to Munich , legroom poor."

Pros: "Crew was excellent."

Cons: "n/a"

Pros: "Everything except the checking in process"

Pros: "I'm tall so the suit was somewhat uncomfortable."
Cons: "Other than the tight space I have no other complaints."

Cons: "You canceled my trip"

Pros: "Touch screen is sharp and responsive."
Cons: "Food is ok. Used to be better a few years ago when the cuisine had a Southest Asian fusion style."

Cons: "2 hours Delayed and operated by United ..."

Cons: "The temperature on the airplane was uncomfortably warm. Not sure what was up with the AC but I had to change clothes and freshen up once arriving at my layover."

Cons: "The last rows are too near from the toilets or perhaps they weren’t clean when we left Washington"

Cons: "A bass blasting private event at the airport near Lufthansa gate"

Cons: "Seems like they want to nickel and dime you for everything now..."

Cons: "My baggage didn't come on time. I have to stay at the airport for additional 3h"

Pros: "Treated passengers well - even those of us in steerage. Food was excellent and entertainment options plentiful. Coach is still coach, and it’s hard to settle in for a nap. So, if arriving rested is important to you, spring for business class."

Pros: "Underseat AC power and USB power was the highlight of the trip."
Cons: "Food portions were tiny. Totally dehydrated at the end of the flight, and water was passed out in 100 mL servings. Insufficient space under the seat for a backpack."

Cons: "The air on the plane was unable to be controlled."

Cons: "Wish we’d had a bit more legroom"

Cons: "They were good"

Pros: "The in flight crew was great"
Cons: "I arrived a bit late to the airport. 5:15pm for a 6:05p for an international flight. I realize It is very late. I was delayed by donald trump protestors blocking the highway (not your fault). Dulles was a ghost town ( abnormally slow). All I had was carry-on. They said they closed the flight. They quoted me at $1800 for a one way ticket directly from Lufthansa. The original round trip was $900. I declined, sat down for 15 min booked another Lufthansa flight online for $800, checked in and was through security by 5:50. Just in time for my original flights last call. I could have made it easily. Boooo Lufthansa booo."

Pros: "Efficient, early check in and seat selection was simple and done from home. Got to the airport early which is unusual for me but everything went smoothly and was relatively low stress."

Pros: "flight was fine."
Cons: "very disappointed Iceland Air is charging $95 for 1 piece of luggage. This is making me rethink the "deal" because it added $190 to the cost of the flight."

Pros: "The process was straight forward. There was nothing wrong but nothing special."

Pros: "Cabin crew was very nice."
Cons: "No food was served for an international flight. This isn’t a budget airline."

Cons: "It was so HOT in our original row (13). The woman next to us passed out, no doubt because of how uncomfortably hot it was"

Pros: "Plane was clean and well managed. Everything felt smooth as we were well taken care of"

Pros: "Iceland Air equipment crew & service"
Cons: "Hidden charges!!!! I was not advised until I checked in that I had to pay extra $90 for my ONE checked bag. Then, I was told that if I had paid in advance that I could have saved -20%. Then I was told that I would have to pay again on the return. And I could not pay at that time to get any discount on the return baggage charge. So the Kayak ‘discount fare’ wasNO DISCOUNT, only additional restrictions, like inability to select an isle seat for my long legs."

Pros: "My headline says it all. I am a regular user of Icelandair."
Cons: "I never like it when the person in front pushes bac their seat squishing me and putting the screen on the back of their seat too close to my face, but this is true of all sidelined. They should make seats unmovable, or make everyone lie back!!"

Cons: "Very poor explanation with fare type even contain some level of fraud"

Cons: "Didnt even offer coffee or juice in the morning"

Cons: "crew were not warm or friendly. professional, but not friendly. and bag check prices were outrageous!"

Pros: "I do enjoy their atmospheric northern lights when traveling at night. Good food, smart looking and kind staff. The seats were comfortable. The layover was equally pleasant with little to no delays."

Pros: "Very reasonable cost, on time, clean plane and courteous service"
Cons: "N/A"

Pros: "Movies and USB plugs for each seat"
Cons: "Small seats, limited leg space"

Pros: "I need a cheap flight and at the time that was my best bet. Didn't have a bad time but next time I will fly direct from the US."
Cons: "Seats were so so, leg room was barely substantial. Iceland is expensive even on a layover, thankfully it wasn't very long."

Cons: "At the airport in Iceland we had to go downstairs after we deplaned and then come back up to check in again. No alternative to stairs was offered."

Pros: "The crew."
Cons: "Having to pay for everything."

Cons: "My flight was cancelled and I never got to go. I'm very upset about this."

Pros: "Crew was pleasant"
Cons: "Worst seat on the plane - very back row - seat wouldn't recline - toilet kept flushing all through the flight. No free headphones. No meal."

Cons: "To whom it may concern, In the last week I have flown Iceland Air three times. In fact had it been up to me, the first time would have been the last. But due to family traveling, our plans were set. So listed below is the detailed description of my horrible travels with your airline as well as all the added expenses it cost me. Due to all of the misshaps with Iceland air I have had in the last couple weeks, I made sure on my returning flight to check in and pick the seats for myself and the family member I was traveling with for my returning flight from Gatwick to Iceland. However when we got the gate, my ticket dinged because they had moved my seat from next to my family to the back of the plane, because they over booked the flight. This has been a disaster only because of this airline. Next time I plan on using British airways, the flight I took with them was amazing and effortless on my part!"

Pros: "The Icelandair ground staff tried their best to deal with the impossible but the end result was still totally unacceptable. See below for details."
Cons: "Incompetent ground operations. Five departure delays and gate changes. 24 hour delay. Communications and customer service disaster."

Pros: "Staff on plane."
Cons: "Hardest and narrowest seats I've ever experienced. No complementary food served on transatlantic flight and the food offered for sale was unappealing and expensive. There was a problem with staff meeting the arriving plane to open the door and allow passengers to disembark. The wait was 15 minutes for someone to show up on each leg of the trip."

Cons: "Are you serious? I fly to Europe, and the bag doesn't even make it out of Iceland? In fact, dozens of people didn't get their bags? They never put them on the plane? How does this happen? I am in London meeting with clients... and all I have is a sweatsuit. I don't have time to go buy new clothes, so I will look like an idiot in front of my boss and our clients. Thanks a lot Icelandair."

Pros: "I was the first one off the plane"
Cons: "The emergency door was in front of my seat. I couldn't sit without my knees hitting it or at an angle which is uncomfortable. I asked the flight attendants if I could I've and they said "no it's a different class". I paid for a seat on your airline and all I wanted was that seat but was given something Waltham was not what I paid for. Also, I had to hold my water bottle and book bc there was no seat back pocket. It was a miserable flight. Especially since the gentleman on the other side of the plane in front of the emerge door was able to move to one of the seats that, "was a different class". I guess just a different class for me??"

Pros: "Arrived safe."
Cons: "Technical problems kept us at gate for 3 hours."

Pros: "Good movies"
Cons: "No food and no room"

Cons: "I was surprised that we did not get a meal service, not even a little snack for a long hall, from D.C. to Iceland. The only service we had was the water. I probably won't fly with this airline again....Sorry."

Cons: "Reykjavik airport was cramped, with no good food options behind security. Would not bring my stroller to me; they did have (broken) strollers for common use, but I didn't get my stroller until IAD baggage claim (and it was soaking wet). So I had to go through the haul to immigration line with no stroller."

Pros: "I liked the in flight movie selection."
Cons: "There were so many things wrong with our flight from Gatwick to NYC. The check in staff were rude and homophobic at check in, forcing my partner and I to separate for check in while we watched heterosexual partners check in together freely. The disabled toilet alarm broke as we descended into NYC and we listened to end-of-the-world death sirens as we were landing. It was not communicates that food was a microtransaction on flight and was so overpriced so we went nearly 13 hours without food because the flights were also delayed on the tarmac. The de-icing tow truck in Iceland was broken down so we were delayed two hours on the layover. On return, both Icelandair gates opened late. During the layover we were kettled in hot container units before 20 min before being bussed to the plane and held for 15 minutes. Then, the icing on the cake was landing back at Gatwick and seeing my brand new luggage I bought on the trip damaged with thr back pocked ripped out along the bottom seam. I will never again ride with these rude, price-gouging, apathetic amateurs."

Pros: "Quick, efficieny, comfy and they really treat the kids well."
Cons: "Delayed baggage reclaim at Gatwick and long immigration lines."

Pros: "On time, clean, price of ticket."
Cons: "Seat cushion was not comfortable."

Cons: "Very stingy with no snack food and offered something to drink once during 5.5 your flight"

Pros: "Friendly crew. Clean plane"
Cons: "You have to pay for most everything"

Pros: "Finally getting off of Icelandair for good that day."
Cons: "See above."

Pros: "There were blankets. It was cool enough in cabin"
Cons: "Boarding was very difficult, exit a bus and no order to enter plane, lots of problems with people going in wrong direction and very narrow isle to try and cross paths. Very unorganized. Flight was delayed."

Cons: "It was delayed causing me to miss my connection"

Cons: "Our flight from Washington DC to Iceland was so late that we lost a day of our vacation and had to spend three hours in line at the airport to get hotel vouchers."

Pros: "They set us up with free hotel in Reykavik, but that's about it."
Cons: "Where to start? They were delayed 3 hours leaving DC because of technical issues and kept promising us they would hold our connecting flight to Zurich. That of course didn't happen, so we proceeded to have to wait in a line at their service desk for 2.5 hours just so they could rebook us for the next day. We lost a day of our vacation due to Iceland Air incompetence"

Pros: "The overnight flight from the states to Iceland was really nice and the airline provided pillows/blankets. The stopover in Iceland was easy to navigate in the smaller airport."
Cons: "N/a"

Cons: "Flight was almost an hour late departing IAD, and arrived too late in Reykjavik for us to make our connecting flight to Paris, which Icelandair did not hold at all for the many passengers who were connecting. We were sent to England, then connected with another airline after a four hour layover. Our arrival in Paris was 8 hours late, and our bags did not get to us at our hotel until four days later. This was poor customer service by Icelandair all around, that could have been avoided by holding the connecting flight for 45 minutes. It affected many passengers, not just us."

Pros: "International flight no food could not believe"
Cons: "Seats were smaller than other"

Pros: "Service was excellent."
Cons: "Have no complaints at all"

Pros: "Very nice plane with free movies and comfortable seats."

Pros: "Entertainment system"
Cons: "No food, beverage service very limited."

Cons: "Did not realize that free meals were not provided. The trip ended without eating for 9 hours, as no hot meals were offered."

Pros: "Timing"
Cons: "Tight seating"

Pros: "Excellent service and exceptionally clean planes!"

Pros: "Air traffic controllers strike was explained to us beforehand"

Cons: "never again"

Pros: "The staff did a great, efficinet job of boarding the passengers. They did everthing that tthe crew in Reykjavik did not. (Please see below.) The boarding was smooth and we departed on schedule."

Cons: "I liked"
