Enjoy food could be better plus again some wipes to clean hands before meals

I upgraded my seat to business class for $800 and then at checking at the gate charged an extra $200 for my luggage. Saw this happening to other passengers as well. Being charged extra too. I think business class should include the luggage. Another way the Swiss has their hand in your pocket. I was unhappy. Can’t leave my clothes behind!

The process just did not seem to be managed very well. There were issues with the tv monitors; however, the crew handled it very well. I wish we had been given an option with the calzones - I don't like red peppers or tomatoes, and was not offered another option."
Pros: "Seats are roomy"
Cons: "Selection of movies rather poor"

Cons: "Virgin Atlantic has had better days. Living off of a long gone reputation. Great staff but old and worn out planes. Code sharing has done them no favors!"

Cons: "Delayed flight"
Pros: "The crew were nice and friendly. The plane was new with lots of amenities"
Cons: "The new plane has NO leg room at all. It’s the worst leg room i’ve Experienced for such a large plane. I’m 6’1” and my knees would only fit if I spread my legs wide and sit back deep into the chair."
Pros: "The movies"
Cons: "We boarded late, then sat in a hot plane for an ester 30-40 mins because the route got cancelled. They wouldn’t serve us beverages while it was so hot inside. We landed over 49 mins later into Lax"

Cons: "The food and snack choices are quite limited."
Pros: "Customer services"
Pros: "I board sky priority or sooner so it always goes well."
Cons: "Delta could do a little more to align people behind the right zone pillars when lining up for boarding. Passengers especially those not used to flying or flying with Delta are always confused. Maybe some stripping on the floor could help or pillars at the front and midway back."
Pros: "Delta fo"
Pros: "Great service very courteous crew. Smooth takeoff and landing."
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Crew was good."
Cons: "Plane was late"
Pros: "Good experience overall. Pleasant staff. Movie features were wonderful and helped pass the time."
Pros: "The service. The plane (seemed like an international plane). Food options. The service and the service. There was a problem getting on, they allowed premium members to board but when I got to the plane, I was scolded by the cleaning crew lady (maybe the Mgr) that they were not ready and that she had informed 'them' of that and that no one is allowed to board while they are cleaning."
Cons: "Spent $25 on Main Cabin Preferred when I thought it was Economy Comfort. Did not really change my experience and i'm out $25."

The flight was booked via Virgin Atlantic. Using their on-line check-in I was directed to the Republic Airways check-in who were operating the flight on behalf of Virgin. There is no trace of any way to check in on their website. I found the flight on the LeGuardia Airport information page and saw that it also had a Delta Airlines flight number so I tried to check-in via their web site - which worked. It would be much better if the eticket information had the correct details for on-line checkin.

It was a very good value for money so I really do not think there is anything to complain.

Virgin Atlantic lied to us that they will check in first bag free. From Indianapolis, Delta checked in first bag for free including carrying on. But Virgin Atlantic charged us £60.00 for one bag, from Manchester to Orlando, whereas that was not the agreement when we bought the thicket. The agreement was first bag free, even we showed them prove. They’re not trustworthy at all. They are pathological liars.

Check in took over 2 hours because the agent had no experience with dealing with declared transport of unloaded firearms. Not surprising in a country where that is rare. She should have been able to call for some help from someone with more authority or experience. She stated I need a reservation for the handgun and ammunition. No information was given to me by the World Police & Fire Games that a "reservation" for my handgun and ammo would be needed. When I checked ahead of time there was no information about a "reservation" needed in Virgin Atlantic's web site or Delta's web site dealing with firearms.

Virgin Atlantic should not be allowed to run codeshares without WestJet if neither company can provide check in or boarding passes - I was told I had to recheck my bags on a connecting flight which due to delays of the first one meant I had to abandon my bags at my first leg City to ensure I was able to run to get my flight as I only had 30 mins to make boarding. This means I landed in my destination without my luggage and am likely to never get it back. I will not fly on Virgin Atlantic again.

Mass produced airline food is tough to get right but maybe food that doesn’t require as much cutting so you don’t elbow your neighbors ie spring rolls. Ear buds were hard to hear through. But overall Flight staff was professional, lavatories were clean, boarding was orderly, flight on time.

Confusion on boarding - priority passengers should get priority. Service good, entertainment not so good and headphones poor. Meals average. Person behind kept kicking my seat so uncomfortable journey. Disembarking good and baggage fairly prompt.

Positives: The extra seat room in premium class was very nice and comfortable. The cabin staff were excellent, very helpful and pleasant. Negatives: On the downside, my wife and I sat apart. Also, when we tried to change our seats so that we could sit together, the faulty Virgin website kept taking me to meals rather than to seating. Finally, when we tried phoning, we were told that the waiting time to speak to someone was 3 hours!

First time I traveld with virgin Atlantic and service is good flight is also very good.

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: "Always helpful cabin staff and very efficient"
Cons: "Cery old aircraft ecenomy cramped (usually fly premium but it was an emergency )"
Cons: "Food wasn’t great and not a lot of it. London to Orlando was good. Connection was good."
Cons: "Staff were unhelpful and ran out of many food items by the time we were served - meaning that there wasn’t anything available for us to eat as we don’t eat eggs. The check-in was stressful and staff were keen to help - unprofessional and unsatisfactory."
Pros: "Not crowded. Crew was good."
Cons: "Not taking a bus to board the plane."
Pros: "Excellent service!"
Cons: "I cancelled this flight online, then I called to let them know I was getting emails, but that I had cancelled. For two days I received emails about delayed flights and now this."
Pros: "The roomie seats, the USB port, and in flight entertainment"
Cons: "Child free section"
Cons: "More leg room"
Pros: "crew / cabin staff always seem very friendly and genuine and a willingness to help"
Pros: "Great crew, comfortable and smooth flight"
Pros: "Crew were wonderful when I was nauseous from turbulence"
Cons: "The food is not very good at all. One mediocre meal served soon after take-off, then for the rest of the flight tasteless, cardboard pasties and wraps."
Pros: "- Special meals available for those with dietary restrictions. - Friendly cabin crew."
Cons: "- Boarding kept getting delayed without any warning. - Duty free purchase was meant to be collected just before boarding the plane but mine was not there. This was not so much an issue but the man said he would have my bag sent to my seat and I was subsequently approached by a crew member who asked for my receipt. Which he was holding in his hand. I would have thought it would be quite easy to confirm the person without them having the receipt as the their name and seat number is on the receipt but he had to go back and check if it was okay. - Found it hard to sleep on the overnight flight due to uncomfortable seats. Would probably not be an issue in upper class. - No comment on entertainment as did not use it."
Pros: "Everything except the food"
Cons: "The food is atrocious. Even if I have to pay to upgrade my meal, I would..."
Pros: "The food was great. The flight attendants were very courteous and took excellent care of all passengers"
Cons: "Long flight lol j/k can't help that. It was a great flight, no complaints"
Pros: "We paid for ecomony x which gave us priority check in and boarding plus first meal. Very impressed, we had an exit row seat and the flight attendant who sat opposite us was extremely friendly."
Cons: "I wish the economy x seats weren’t located next to the toilets... it’s pretty bothersome with the noise, smells and light emitted"
Pros: "The flight crew was phenomenal, especially Daniella. Somehow we wound up with seats right next to the bathroom door, which would have been a pretty uncomfortable situation for a variety of reasons, but the flight wasn't full, and she helped us find a suitable place to sit. Also, my wife and I usually take our tea with honey vs. milk and sugar. Even though honey is usually one of the options for tea, she found a way to accommodate our request. The lunch meals were the best I can remember in a long time on an airline flight. They might have been the best I've ever had. The chicken curry was authentic, flavorful and spicy. Frankly my outbound flight had problems. My luggage got damaged. The transfer experience in Manchester left a LOT to be desired. I wasn't planning to use Virgin Atlantic again, but this flight crew (Daniella especially) redeemed Virgin Atlantic. They were attentive, pleasant, diligent."
Cons: "Only thing I didn't like about this flight was the boarding area. Once you get into that the area, you don't really have access to appetizing food (only vending machines) or even restrooms. That's one thing that could be improved."
Cons: "No flight"
Pros: "The crew was professional, responsive and friendly."
Cons: "The following experience goes down in history as the worst ever because: we had a 3.5 year old child, and mom and dad seated directly in front of our row. The couple ignored the instructions to move seats forward during meals making it impossible to eat. They placed their luggage in the overhead compartment belonging to both rows, which wasn't a problem if they hadn't proceeded to open and close the compartment every 20 minutes. The 300 pd dad repeatedly stepped on my broken toe while reaching for his luggage, while rattling around and disturbing sleeping passengers. And, sadly the child repeatedly threw temper tantrums without any care or effort of intervention from the parents. In short, they terrorized the surrounding travellers. In contrast, my outbound flight, also had a family seated in the row directly in front. This family was the antithesis, considerate and respectful of their fellow passengers. Susan Laws"
Cons: "Staff"
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: "Free drinks! Lots of food and good entertainment. Glad to have a free blanket and headphones as well."
Cons: "Economy seating wasn’t that comfortable"
Pros: "Food and entertainment was excellent"
Cons: "Staff seemed a bit stressed and busy but very efficient"
Pros: "Excellent"
Cons: "My flight was cancelled due to technical problems! Hope to be on another flight today as I missed my connecting flights too!!"
Pros: "Great Service. Truly enjoyed Economy plus!"
Pros: "The flight crew from the mel to lax route were excellent. One was especially attentive to my 2 toddlers and gave me a bit of a break, something that has NEVER happened in over 40 flights traveling with children."
Cons: "I think something was broken in our section (mel to lax) as it was uncomfortably hot and the flight crew tried to get it cooler but could not. I’ve never experienced a flight that was too hot, usually the opposite. It was stifling."
Cons: "Service is super fast"
Pros: "Amazing food and drinks, and to top it off we were served a frozen ice cream treat during our flight."
Pros: "Food, crew, entertainment great"
Cons: "Seat were very uncomfortable.. hard, not enough leg room and there was no way to sleep comfortably with the head rest that is set up so you can rest your head on it,but its awkward and hard an in the way..."
Pros: "Did not take the flight in the end"
Cons: "My first leg flight was delayed and I booked through kayak on two different airlines and the first airline did not communicate with the second airline so 5 passengers ran to make the change and arrived 1 min after the jetbridge to get on the plane was pulled away. It was incredible frustrating and could have very easily been avoided with communication from the airlines"
Pros: "Choice of movies was good, but told the flight over was better. I flew another airline. Had no issue checking one bag in for free, but I think that is standard on an international flight."
Cons: "Entertainment systems take up foot/bag space underneath the seats. Was not able to get more than one glass of wine, even though I missed the first beverage service, that is my fault though, but I don't recall it being an issue getting a drink between services. Entertainment systems had contrast issues and it seemed like a lot of people 8 - 10 had issues since they were using iPads instead of the built in monitors. A lot of wear showing on the entertainment systems remotes."
Pros: "On time, comfortable (for Economy), friendly crew. Nine hour flight didn't feel that long."
Cons: "Entertainment system in our seats seemed pretty beat up. On one there was no sound, on the other not all the buttons on the control would respond when you pressed them."
Pros: "Purchased an extra 3" of leg room, which helped tremendously being that my husband & I are both tall. Flight attendants were friendly, helpful & attentative. There were plenty of beverages offered. The food service was adequate. So many options on the media screens on the back of the seats. USB ports were provided on the back of every seat as well."
Cons: "Nothing!"
Pros: "1st class, what's not to like?"
Pros: "Staff excellent , as always."
Cons: "It was impossible to sleep as the plane seemed extremely cold and was very noisy."
Cons: "More than one hour delated"
Pros: "The staff, the food , everything was good. We were in premium economy and were impressed ."
Cons: "I have trouble walking and the golf buggy never arrived to take me and another lady to the airoplane so we had to walk."
Pros: "Professional Cabin Crew Excellent "vera" entertainment"
Cons: "Chaotic boarding procedure in Cancun airport, although I accept that this is more of an issue with airport layout Removal of some of the "Virgin Atlantic" benefits such as free sports equipment will make me rethink my carrier of choice from next year. The 747 fleet is starting to feel old - when are the dream liners coming?"
Pros: "Dont whish to comment unless a human being can contact me and help me get the $200 travel voucher I was promised. It was so stressful its the least that can be done"
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."
Pros: "Crew was very attentive and professional."
Cons: ". The economy seats on the Lufthansa A350 were extremely uncomfortable and seemed excessively narrow as well has having cramped legroom. I could not get comfortable let alone sleep, and my backside felt like I had been sitting on a park bench rather than a long haul coach airline seat."
Pros: "Nice crew"
Cons: "Better food, some entertainment, better bathrooms"
Cons: "It’s an international flight. It is what it is!"
Pros: "nothing"
Cons: "better accommodation of passangers"
Cons: "They told us there were no earbuds so recommended using our own. Our children had left theirs at home so they ran to get a $20 pair nearby. But the the plane DID have the buds; what we did not have were blankets — the crew said none were to be had."
Pros: "Everything except the checking in process"
Cons: "Fight could have been on time! It was over 45 minutes late, because of the crew"
Pros: "Baggage arrived with me. Upgraded to First Class because so many of those passengers got other flights the night before."
Cons: "Original 5 pm flight was cancelled because there was no Crew or plane, even though it’s a United hub. Though flight cancelled early, United could not get me home same day so provided hotel and meal. Next day flight scheduled 7:05 then 8 am, but even that time came and went without boarding. 15 hours delayed and no hurry getting the plane to depart at the stated time. Total lack of customer service and concern"
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: "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: "Cleanliness"
Cons: "It was late by 1 hour. Food was not enough. Was hungry since dinner was late due to delayed flight and breakfast was served at lunch time of MUC. Electrical outliets did not work in the flight and had problems in MUC for GPS."
Cons: "Water only and.. I had to asked for it. No snacks or other drinks in my eighteenth hour of flying back from Poland :(("
Cons: "Seats felt like Adirondack chairs..hard and no lower back support."
Cons: "A bass blasting private event at the airport near Lufthansa gate"
Pros: "The crew were impeccable."
Cons: "Very narrow economy seats."
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."
Pros: "I wasn't expecting free in-flight movies and meals, which were very welcome"
Cons: "Seat pocket was damaged and couldn’t be used. Food was at best mediocre. Old salad, old bread, no salt with warm meal."
Pros: "nothing"
Cons: "Flight got delayed 9 hours."
Pros: "Everything on the flight was very efficient and organized—the boarding process, the excellent and pleasant service, the food, and the entertainment selections. Thank you for making a long flight enjoyable."
Cons: "Food wasn't the best but did honor my special diet request."
Pros: "The food was good."
Cons: "The seats were not too comfortable and the video screen was small."
Pros: "They were nice"
Cons: "They were good"
Pros: "Service was very good, flight was very smooth"
Pros: "The service by the flight attendants was very good starting from the welcome to the end in spite of the fact that it was quite late night flight. Also by fortunate luck I had the chance to sleep as the next three seats to me were all empty in the middle block, which made the whole trip less exhaustive."
Cons: "If the seats next to me weren't empty and I couldn't lay down across all of them it would have been a difficult flight as the economy seats are not even close with economy comfort levels of other international airlines like Turkish Airlines especially the seat pitch size. Entertainment choices could be improved by more recent movies. There were very few selection."
Cons: "Not enough room. Aisle seat was too narrow and short."
Pros: "Economy premium seating was definitely worth it. I had a great sleep. Stewards were friendly and helpful."
Pros: "Better then United airline"
Cons: "Everything was awesome"
Pros: "On time all the time"
Cons: "Food getting worse year after year."
Cons: "Flight delayed by about an hour"
Pros: "Excellent service, on time arrival, a great experience! Everything was easy with Lufthansa, which soothed my jitters and helped me relax (as much as is possible!)"
Pros: "The check in process was fast and pleasant. Boarding was fast and organized. Food and drinks were good."
Cons: "The seats were very uncomfortable for such a long flight. Simply terrible."
Pros: "Everything was amazing Very pleased!"
Cons: "Good choice entertainment but system is slow to respond and crashed on a few occasions"
Pros: "Captain was personable and made the flight more enjoyable"
Cons: "Length, which could not be helped"
Pros: "Timely departure."
Cons: "Fruit and a muffin is not enough for breakfast."
Pros: "The agent at the counter was very very helpful and accommodated us to an earlier flight. That saved us lot of time."
Cons: "Boarding three planes to three different destinations from the same gate is very confusing."
Cons: "We were in economy class. It looked like the seats my wife and I were in were smaller than the surrounding seats. The seat I was assigned was also more narrow than the one my wife was assigned. I am tall, and could not move my legs for the trip. Also, the seat controls were on the inside is the seat. I could not move at all without turning on the overhead light or screen."
Pros: "The crew was very attentive. I did not want to eat the food and the crew offered me fruit. Great A/V options."
Pros: "Short and Smooth Flight"
Pros: "NOTHING!"
Cons: "EVERYTHING! They put us on a United flight. 11 hours on the plane with NO ENTERTAINMENT. They apologized at the end and told us to all fill out a complaint at united.com. I did and still haven't heard back. The flight attendants were rude and it was a horrible flight. Worst international flight I have taken in my life. And it was for an adoption appointment with a judge in Riga, and we barely made it."
Pros: "They handed out baggage claim tickets for the larger carry-on items early so that passengers had plenty of time to rearrange their items, as long as they arrived at the gate in time."
Cons: "They had 3 flights boarding through 2 doors that led to one hallway, which was very confusing. It took quite a while to retrieve the checked carry-on items, with the effect that most of the passengers were lined up down the causeway tube, waiting. The seats are so very cramped on these puddle jumpers; this was way too long a flight for cramped seats that don't recline. The entertainment was wifi that never really worked."
Cons: "We missed the connection so never made this flight."
Pros: "Best crew ever. By far most friendly staff and excellent service."
Cons: "Nothing that I know"
Cons: "This was a united flight. The personal was not helpful, only in helping me communicate with the airport in Rome to change my flight. I had to pay 97 euros for this change. I am upset and think it is not fair that I need to pay for a problem united had with their flight. I also think star Allience failed as they were not able to resolve the problem with their partner airlines."
Pros: "Everything is great. The airplane, staff, and their terminal at the airport"
Cons: "I can't find anything bad about me experience with Lufthansa."
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."

Long delay, minimal crew engagement but comfy plane.

To charge $39 for a list and found help ticket is extortion—will they find my item for that price?

Delays. Endless walking at Schiphol, most exits closed. No staff or signs.

Overall a pleasant flight.

Both airports totally understaffed. Awful experience.

Pros: "I liked how generous they were with food and drinks"
Cons: "Free WiFi could have made the flight a lot better"
Pros: "Perfect"
Cons: "Nothing. Flight was amazing"
Pros: "The plane size & comfort was excellent. The staff were very friendly"
Cons: "N/A"
Cons: "Boarding at Florence is always chaotic but this isn't within the control of KLM or their crew."
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."
Pros: "Professional crew. Good simple check in."
Cons: "Nothing."
Pros: "The socks offered in business were comfortable and nice looking. The red wine was good."
Cons: "The food was just average and the seat not too comfortable"
Pros: "Seats were super comfortable, bigger than most planes with extra leg room. Food was excellent and fresh, amazing Dutch cheese sampler was divine. No nonsense staff who had all connecting flight info on hand when we arrived in Abu Dhabi. KLM staff were friendly and efficient. Fabulous airline."
Pros: "Seats super comfy. Ended up with 3 seats to myself that formed a bed for the lap Uk to NZ. Very nice!"
Pros: "No delay and nice staff"
Pros: "Seat was good"
Cons: "Depart on time (1 hour late), hostess put a laptop in the overhead, which fell out and hit me when the bin was opened"
Cons: "Flight on time would have been good when you have a late evening arrival. Long wait for luggage at Birmingham airport."
Pros: "Food, entertainment and crew was exceptionally friendly."
Cons: "Seats not great for such a long flight."
Pros: "Nothing!"
Cons: "We were told they were holding our flight, we ran 3 terminals and they’d already left."
Pros: "One crew member was very good but all were not very available or checking on people. I had a seat that I purchased and it was very hard to recline I only found out that it did if fact recline it the last hour to hour and a half of the trip! It was a difficult push back to get it to recline"
Cons: "If I knew how to recline my seat earlier. I did try several times"
Pros: "quick/efficient boarding - good staff - good food - easy flight !"
Cons: "the connecting times for klm seem to be very close - if your running late to start - you may not make your next one -"
Pros: "The crew was amazing and the food was great."
Cons: "Something did not go right with our booking so it took some work for the airline to get it figured out for us. Thankfully we had left plenty of time. But that was an unexpected stress."
Cons: "The check in desk was late opening & the carry on luggage size was smaller than advertised on their website, so it had to be put in the hold. Open on time to prevent less stress to travelers & give more accurate information about cabin luggage."
Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "Security check at gate; No priority"
Pros: "Cabin Crews was extremely good and hospital. Transfer point staff buggy / wheal Chair was good and second to none."
Cons: "Transfer point needs upgrade."
Pros: "Crew was good"
Cons: "Food"
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: "And i got it 2 days later. I had to buy a lot of items which were in my suitcase The returning of the suitcase was awfull. In tge end after many phone calls I received it On the 18/12 evening, 2 days after my landing"
Pros: "Crew was very friendly. Nice that wine was served without charge."
Cons: "Announcements from the cockpit were hard to hear. Food has been better in past."
Pros: "Shirt flight but well catered, boarding was efficient and quick."
Cons: "Not lots of legroom but adequate for an hour long hop. It was cold on board and also had to board via steps from outside"
Cons: "The cabin crew was racist. She told me to move back from an empty seat just because she wanted one of the guys ( from her country ) to set on it! Very rude and racist."
Pros: "Norhing"
Cons: "They have mabaged to lost my luggage"
Pros: "Cabin crew were very professional."
Cons: "Aircraft returned to gate due to fault and was delayed for 45 min."
Pros: "Very friendly service!"
Pros: "Clean airplane, friendly crew, no rush, nice snacks for a short one hour flight. Just generally a positive experience."
Pros: "Staff both at the airport and in the plane were professional and welcoming. Depsite short distance sandwich and drink were offered."
Cons: "Nothing to be honest . All positive."
Pros: "Cabin Crew was awesome."
Cons: "Entertainment System was not working and no Non-veg food option in flight."
Cons: "Flight was delayed 8 hours. Arriving at Incheon, discovered ground crew were unaware of our arrival to take this connecting flight. However, we were put up overnight in a hotel, which was nice."
Pros: "Very little if any."
Cons: "Aircraft was not very clean,the staff seamed quite harsh at times when speaking to customers. The food was really quite poor but it was a short flight to be honest. Overall not as pleasant as the China Southern flights. I would not like to choose them again unless i had to."
Pros: "Crew was friendly..business class seat was very comfortable and seemed wider than most Nice power outlets great entertainment system"
Cons: "Row 6 in business is after the first 5 rows and Galley and restroom. Very awkward"
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. A lovely touch. This airline runs like clockwork. They are just great. The sandwich and stoop waffle are nice too."
Cons: "There is a bus to the plane, so that takes a bit of extra time but they are very well organized."
Pros: "Flight was efficient enough and staff were friendly."
Cons: "It was delayed quite a bit and more on-time updates would have been appeciated."

Cons: "temperature control was not good, service was fine, seats were not comfortable. plane need to be cleaner."

Pros: "The crew were very friendly and accomodating, plane was clean and boarding amd disembarking was efficiently handled."
Cons: "55 minute delay was not welcome."
Cons: "The crew on the Lagos Amsterdam route (in economy) are particularly unfriendly and brusque. This is my experience each time i fly this route in economy"
Cons: "With skyteam elite status cannot select free upgrade from economy to premium economy unless it is 30hrs before boarding for this code share which is actually a KLM flight"
Pros: "The staff (ground staff and cabin) were friendly and helpful. Great to see them trying to help and going the extra mile for passengers."
Cons: "The boarding process. It is a crowded space at the gate, and the boarding ends up with long lines getting confused and in the way."
