Pros: "Amazing"
Cons: "Nothing really"

Pros: "Entertainment and helpful staff"
Cons: "Had worst seat on plane on outward because I didn't know I could pick a seat free of charge before online checkin This could be a lack of communication on Kayak/Last Minute.com as opposed to Virgin"

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."

Cons: "They have to uptade the airplanes"

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: "Although we were badly delayed the cabin service was excellent in every way. Good meal , cheerful staff and well turned out."

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"

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

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."

Cons: "It was terribly late. No one had a clue on when flight would depart."

Pros: "The entertainment selection was good, though I didn't need to see the blurb about having vloggers available before every movie. One of the very few airlines to use boarding by rows, which speeds up the boarding process."
Cons: "The legroom is very cramped, pretty difficult to eat your meal with the seat in front reclined. The crew were not very attentive: they completely missed me while I was waving the rubbish on their collection rounds. In the end I had to dump it myself in the toilet bins. The PA system is too loud compared to the rest of the entertainment, had to remove the headphones for each one of them."

Pros: "Check in was very smooth with very friendly staff. On board crew was very welcoming and service was excellent."
Cons: "Aircraft configuration of the 787-9 was very poor with 9 seats abreast making the seats very cramped and very poor leg room."

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: "I liked that the boarding went really fast and the staff at the JFK airport was super nice and helpful."
Cons: "I didn't like how rude the airplane crew was and how useless and unhappy they were. The sits were very uncomfortable and the food didn't have any taste."

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: "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: "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: "New Dreamliner aircraft was very comfortable with loads of leg room for a tall person like myself at 1.76m"
Cons: "My seat was directly under the aircon and it was blowing very cold all night which made it quite uncomfortable. Fortunately I had an extra blanket which I could wrap over my head."

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: "Everything was great ! The staff very nice and the plane is absolutely amazing .."

Cons: "Not really anything particularly that I didn't like."

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."

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."

Cons: "Smile"

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."

Pros: "Quickly moving through the airport."
Cons: "Take out old planes. It was really run down."

Cons: "Wonderful"

Pros: "Entertainment was awesome. Although airlines are stingy with snacks, Delta had a good overall selection and very generous."

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: "Food good, wine OK"

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: "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: "Chocolate"

Cons: "Well,my whole trip was an adventure! Problem with my checked in bag, so i had to pay 22 pounds extra to fit it in a connection flight and now i have to send receipt to get the refund. On my way back, there was a delay, so i missed the flight and the checked in bag"

Pros: "The crew was friendly. The seating was ok but dirty floors"

Pros: "Very Organised and punctual"

Pros: "Everything except delay"
Cons: "Nil"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything"

Pros: "It was not immediately apparent that boarding was in a completely different terminal which was accessible by train, so this lack of info could have cost me arriving in good time as I thought I had sufficient time. I aldo found ground staff at the customer service desk very unsympathetic and unhelpful when I asked for assistance on grounds of ill health. They were quite condescending ."
Cons: "Ground staff poor customer service"

Cons: "Everything"

Pros: "Everything except the checking in process"

Cons: "You canceled my trip"

Pros: "Evrything"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "The flight was adequate."
Cons: "Sandwich was extremely unappetising and there were no hot drinks. The worst thing was that in transiting from the SAA flight to the Lufthansa flight we were obliged to go through security which seems unnecessary. The security staff were awful. Bullying, rude and totally unsympathetic to the fact that having brought water from the first plane to the second plane we had to either drink it or throw it away. One guy in particular, a tall greying man evoked the worst stereotypes of brutal secret policemen. Perhaps he formerly worked for Stasi or he was having testosterone problems. Totally unacceptable behaviour."

Pros: "The boarding process was well organized and fast."

Cons: "1hr 20 minutes late"

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."

Pros: "Ok"

Pros: "Great atmosphere, crew was excellent!"
Cons: "I’m 6’5”, so legroom can always be a complaint, but this wasn’t too bad. The plane appeared to be fairly old and didn’t have WiFi. Entertainment also was on an older screen which was navigated by using an old in-seat phone."

Cons: "Service"

Pros: "The flight was delayed by 40 minutes initially then a further 20 making it an hour late. Sitting at the gate there was then suddenly a last call to board the flight and a mad rush for everyone to get on. I appreciate that delays happen but the lack of communication ragardinh altered boarding times didn't make the situation any easier"
Cons: "As above"

Pros: "Staff superb. They even surprised us with an exit row and a gift for my partners birthday! Amazing. Samantha and Dennis also took time to come and personally wish him a happy birthday.

Cons: "Boarding unorganized, but that may have been more of a passenger issue then KLM"

Cons: "Finnair are hellbent on trying to sell goods and continuously interrupt the movies with their confounded announcements every 15 minutes very annoying.

Cons: "Smooth flight Arrived early."

Cons: "When I arrived to board my flight I was highly unsatisfied with the excessive charges I received for my luggage that was overweight (only by 7 pounds). I was not only charged an additional $100 for my second checked bag, but I was also charged $200 for the extra weight. As a college student traveling abroad for 6 months, I did not expect to be bombarded with these fees at the beginning of my journey. Due to this experience, I would like to have been notified ahead of time of the expected charges as it made me uneasy before a long flight."

Cons: "BA lost my baggage. The sandwich they offered was uneatable. Marshall Hoffman"

Pros: "Food and service"
Cons: "Seats were very small"

Pros: "Crew, boarding, cleanliness of the plan, and all other aspects other than food were good/excellent."
Cons: "The vegetables in the meal / salad were still frozen….inedible. In the morning in the asian vegetarian meal it was simply fruit…that was it. No protein source. I have been on many BA flights and the food has not been this poor, so not sure if the carrier who services food source has changed."

Cons: "Need wifi to work. Highly dissapointed that BRITISH air doesn't have this feature. Most airlines do!!"

Cons: "There was a very poor selection of movies to watch:( Last tim ei flew AA, and there was an absolutely huge choice . . . Would love to see that improved . . I think you have to cater for all tastes . . . and that definitely was not the case on my flight"

Pros: "Checking and boarding was lighting fast"
Cons: "There was a bit of a delay, which was due to weather and certainly not their fault. They kept us informed"

Pros: "For once the seats have enough space. Airlines think we are cattle and that they can pack as much as possible every airplane. For once I was glad to have a confortable experience."

Cons: "Our bag was not checked through to our final destination and was delivered a day later."

Pros: "Good leg room."
Cons: "I paid an extra $90 to pick this seat. On the website it looked like an exit row seat with lots of room. However I couldn't really move out of my seat without climbing over others. It was a waste of $90."

Pros: "Nice one"
Cons: "Nice one"

Pros: "easy - no surprises"

Pros: "The flight left on time, boarding was a breeze, the food was the only good food I've had while flying ever, seating was better than I was expecting, the movie selection was vast and up to date, and we made phenomenal timing in getting to our destination"
Cons: "Checking in online was difficult - it couldn't find my booking. I was panicking three hours before I was scheduled to depart! I was instructed to go check in at the desk by the service rep on the phone, which was straightforward process, but I was half-expecting being told that my booking had been cancelled"

Pros: "I have a BA - Gold card- BA lounge was good."
Cons: "Comfort- Plans are Old, Entertainments is Worst. BAD BAD BAD."

Pros: "This was a Finnair ticket on a BA flight. The price was excellent and BA was excellent."

Pros: "Head phone jack was not working in my seat."

Cons: "Trying to get through airport security was an unorganized clown show with them herding groups of passengers back and forth between airport terminals resulting in many people almost missing their flights because the lines just weren't moving. Once on the airplane, the international flight had TVs in the ceiling in the row playing one in-flight movie (what is this 1995?). American is such a terrible airline. The old US airways, Lufthansa, and British Airways, are way better international flights every time I've flown with them. Personal entertainment at your seat for each flight (i thought this was standard on all international flights in the past like 10 years) and more food and drinks throughout the flight."

Pros: "And perfectly on time!"

Pros: "Accuracy Staff Serving"
Cons: "My name was wrongly written on the passanger list."

Cons: "There was a terrible smell; food and drinks were served two hours after the flight started, it was dirty, cold and cramped. The whole experience was traumatising!"

Pros: "Movie selection was excellent."
Cons: "Uncomfortable seats and tight quarters. First class was too expensive."

Cons: "I booked the finnair flight because it was direct and charged $60 for additional bags to check in. For me this was really important since I was moving countries so I needed to check in multiple bags. But since this was in partnership with British Airways, I was charged $90 instead of $30. This was not mentioned or made clear before I made my purchase, if i buy a finnair flight then I should be charged finnair prices on baggage. If not, this should have been made clear before hand so I could have weighed my flight options. I hope you are able to provide a resolution."

Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "The upgrade to World Traveler Plus was $330.00 and worthless. They assured me Business Class food service. NOT TRUE. You get the usual coach class prison-type food. Non-existent flight crew service (I got one mini can of Coke the entire flight). Cramped seat next to noisy bathroom. Whole experience was bad."

Cons: "When I got to Phl I missed my connection to London. No one seemed to care that I needed to be in England by the 18th. They kept retorting me to arrive in England on the 19th. I told them multiple times Id be flexible and go to any city in the UK just for them to get me there on the 18th. The First person I talked to said it was impossible. So I called again and talked to another person and all of a sudden it was possible. The worst part was they sent me to Boston after that I didn't get to Boston until 1:50 am and they did not compensate with hotel or anything while my flight to London was not until 8:00 am the next morning. So I spent the night in the airport. Oh and then when I finally got to London, my bag is lost and they told me I'd have it by tomorrow and I still do not have my bag and have called and they said they can't tell me anything."

Pros: "First time across the Atlantic, and the British/French crew was the most polite crew ever."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Cramped, cold,"

Pros: "Seats are snug. You get to know your neighbors really well."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "If I had known when I made the reservation it was American airline would have never booked a ticket plane was dirty food terrible the whole plane needed a update"

Pros: "direct flight"
Cons: "There was a lack of air and no possibility for individual airing your seat, during our flight we had to stand in the back because we were almost passing out of overheating 30 Celsius plus heat in our row. We asked for a cooler temperature and only the last 20 minutes it started cooling but then to ice cold. My audio was not working properly, at max it was still unclear. We have had better flight experiences."

Cons: "Seats on the Dreamliner seemed cramped and too close together."

Pros: "Neat and clean interior that was welcoming and the Airbus looked quite new helping boost one's confidence in it. Have travelled previously in flights where the upholstery is tattered and the plane itself would have seen better days."
Cons: "The seats! Incredibly tight fit and the side armrest would not go back completely either. And what's more, I have a petite frame and if I had trouble I can't imagine what others would have gone through."

Pros: "On time departures. Good service"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Tiny seats. Wouldn't let me pay for an upgrade. Last time I ever use kayak"

Pros: "Great flight"
Cons: "N/A"
