Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Lots of room because plane was half full"
Cons: "I arrived almost early enough to get on an earlier flight. I think if I'd pleaded a bit more..."
Pros: "Loved the warm and very delicious quiche, thank you!"
Pros: "Both the food and service were fantastic. A great choice of mid flight entertainment"
Pros: "The captain kept us informed of all the delays and changes to the flight. The food was excellent and served at appropriate times. The entertainment system proved enough variety for everyone to relax and enjoy themselves on the flight. The agent seated our entire family of four together in the middle section, which was convenient for all of us."
Cons: "The temperature in the airplane was very cold. Both myself and all my children struggled to stay warm, even with the blankets provided. Is there a way to increase the interior cabin temperature? I also wish they had allowed families with children to pre-board the flight."
Pros: "Great experience. GOod comfortable flight, crew and overall services"
Cons: "I wish there were more bollywood albums and more bollywood movies...to choose from"
Pros: "Crew was excellent."
Cons: "The advanced seat reservations that we had paid for 7 months in advance were changed to very uncomfortable substitutes without giving us a reason."
Pros: "Comfy seats. Friendly staff. Lots of food and beverage options"
Cons: "The length of the flight. But I don't know how to make it shorter"
Pros: "This was my first time flying on Swiss Air. Beautiful aircraft and a very friendly crew. Food was good and our flight was on time. Lots of options for in-flight entertainment."
Cons: "The boarding process was not ideal. This was our first time in the Zurich airport and we were not aware of the passport check at the gate. There were no signs and several passengers tried to board without the stamp only to be sent to the passport check line. Very frustrating. Also, there was no organization so everyone just rushed forward when boarding was called. They should consider boarding by rows to make it a more orderly process. Finally, there was no leg room at all. I realize airlines are trying to squeeze every passenger in that they can, but this was ridiculous. I'm 5'11" and my knees were pinned against the seat in front of me."
Pros: "crew was great. Food was excellent. Bathrooms in good shape."
Cons: "No internet. Very slim choices for entertainment."
Pros: "Great kosher food!"

Cons: "Not enough leg room"

Pros: "Very nice flight back home! Comfortable seats (Great receline - almost too much for your neighbors), great food, lots of entertainment, etc. Flight attendants were nice. They left snacks, water, juice and soda out in the galley if you were in the mood for something. Bathrooms were clean. Overall I rate this flight a 9/10."
Cons: "The seat reclining in front of you made it very hard to get out of your seat and into the aisle without major clumsiness and disturbing your fellow passengers. Also the headphone jack has the old fashioned 2 prong. So you can't use your own headphones without an adapter if you only want to listen out of one ear the whole time."
Pros: "Food, service,"
Pros: "I have been flying to Greece and back many years now. I have never seen,such comfort in a plane,such great service,so many snacks and meals,and the crew was coming by every 30-45 minutes for water. We were served Swiss chocolate and also the best ice cream I have had in my life. Best flight and best plane I have flown in my life."
Pros: "Professional and polite crew and comfy seats."
Cons: "Boarding was a mess, late as usual and with no organization of any sort. Terminal E in Zurich has no air conditioning, so you wait in heat and no air. Also who came up with the design to put toilets upstairs where you ave to go using small and crowded hallways."
Pros: "The food and service was wonderful."
Cons: "I was disappointed that there was no plug-ins to charge electronics."
Pros: "smooth, professional, comfortable"

Pros: "Entertainment and food were excellent, and the crew was pleasant and helpful. The small extras were delightful - i.e. warm cloths at the end of the flight! Overall, I think Swiss is a very good airline."
Cons: "On a long flight like this, the seating is still too cramped. We are not large people, and nine hours in those seats is difficult, even with considerate 'neighbors'. The seats are just too close together. This is an airport comment - Deboarding to a bus, then a walk to the train/tram, then security, then another walk to the gate - we barely made our connecting international flight."
Pros: "Seats are roomy"
Cons: "Selection of movies rather poor"
Pros: "Attentive crew"
Cons: "Long wait for baggage at destination"
Pros: "The crew on my flight were the best crew I have ever had in the past ten years. They handled a conflict of a difficult passenger that was sitting in my seat instead of her assigned seat with the utmost professionalism. They were very kind overall."
Pros: "Cabin Service was excellent."
Cons: "OMG the seats are so close together it's very uncomfortable in coach. If the person in front leans back forget it. Not enough room for average sized person. Forget about it if you're a big person."

Pros: "The warm professionalism, quality of service, and attention to detail by the flight crew was outstanding."
Pros: "Food was amazing, boarding was smooth and it went fast, and the crew was very nice."
Cons: "The seats were uncomfortable and if someone reclined their seat was about an inch away from your face. So if you had anything on your tray it was slammed into you stomach. Also it was so hot on the plane felt sick the entire way. Asked twice to turn down the heat nothing really happened. Missed the individual fans."
Pros: "seats were comfortable and we left on time."
Cons: "My bag lost it's tag either in Minneapolis or on the way to Chicago and was re-tagged. It then took 5 days for the bag to arrive at my final destination. Swiss airlines didn't answer any phone calls, didn't respond to email messages sent through the Swiss air website. Had to get an outside agency involved to recover luggage."
Pros: "the service was good"
Cons: "i bougt my ticket on Swiss Airlines. Originally only my frist flight was operated by United. Then something happened and the flight went late and i lost my connections. i ended up flying 24hs late (FROM NY), had to payed a hotel, and my next flight was with United (AGAIN). I really wanted to travel with Swiss, because they have a Ski bag included on the luggage. I ended up paying extra bag in United."

Pros: "I like everything"
Cons: "Everything is good perfekt"
Pros: "Good crew and accomodating"
Cons: "Arm rest doesn't go up all the way. Very difficult to get out when seats are reclined in front of you"
Pros: "Smooth booking and accommodating crews. I thought the United flight had much more room and was a cleaner and more modern airplane. However the food on the Swiss flight was really excellent! What a nice surprise. The crews on both flights were just terrific. They made everyone feel so welcome and they were all so friendly."
Cons: "The space on the Swiss flight was allot tight and the seats were not comfortable at all.... Especially for an overseas flight. The entertainment system was also old fashioned and not very good choices."
Pros: "Comfortable seating, pleasant food and entertainment."
Cons: "Not being charged $1200 for a ticket that I already bought, but had been voided with no notice. And Virgin Atlantic staff not friendly or helpful in any way with this situation."
Cons: "We are a little hard of hearing. It was hard to hear the attendant when giving directions over the intercom. The speech was garbled and directions spoken too fast. I am not referring to the safety speech. Recommend slowing down so that we have more time to process what was spoken."
Pros: "The crew looked after us well"
Cons: "It was all good"
Pros: "Crew was generally nice and caring."
Cons: "Of course coach seat was not super comfortable. And speaker and screen at my seat did not work."
Pros: "Premium economy was perfect, smaller cabin with less people, great flight."
Cons: "Seats were really old and outdated"

Cons: "There is no entertainment, not really required on a short flight but nice when offered."
Pros: "I liked the movies"
Cons: "Crew helping everyone be more courteous to people sleeping. Group of guys being loud in the back of the plane while I was trying to sleep"
Pros: "The flight was so delayed I missed my connecting flight to jfk."
Cons: "The flight was so delayed I missed my connecting flight to jfk."
Cons: "Poor communication about the reasons for our 4 hour delay. Also, we purchased Economy X, which should have given us priority boarding, but we were told we had to stand in the general admission queue."
Pros: "Movies. Meals. Wine. Freq"
Pros: "While seats were close together (little knee space), the plane was 1/2 full, so lots of space in adjoining seats. Nice crew."
Cons: "Delay in boarding - not clear why. Can never get the wireless entertainment system to work."
Pros: "Service, meals, friendly and attentive FAs"
Pros: "I thought the airline amenities were excellent and it was a seamless process getting on the flight. The flight attendants were very warm and accommodating. I felt immediately welcome as soon as I got on the flight. I liked that they were playful with my son and engaged him."
Cons: "Nothing. We did leave a piece of luggage on the plane so hoping that things turn out okay."
Pros: "Everything was as or better than expected. Did not have high expectations, because price was so much less than other airlines. Crew was friendly. Was pleasantly surprised all was good. Was expecting extra fees, (from reading reviews) but had none. Virgin checked bags all the way through, even though tickets were unrelated (and my online checkin said I would have to recheck baggage for second flight)."
Cons: "Seats are small in economy. I was lucky it was not a full flight, so I had two seats. The entertainment system was a. It confusing to manage, but the choices were good. Food was ok; but not worse than would expect."
Pros: "Smoothest long flight I’ve ever had. No hassles checking in, boarding or leaving the aircraft. Bags checked through to final destination without any problem. Good employees at the check-in counter and at the boarding gate. Service was good at LAX."
Cons: "Cabin service somewhat spotty. I was not served breakfast and had to ask for a meal even though all those sitting around me were served. My wife did not get the coffee she requested even though it was promised twice. Trash accumulated at our seat making use of the tray awkward. I tried to pre-pay for extra luggage on-line before the flight but the web site would not allow me to do so. We paid $100 per extra bag at check-in."
Pros: "Friendly crew, clean, well presented cabin."
Cons: "Flight was late (again). Food was very little for an international service (small packet of pretzels + savoury muffin."
Pros: "The crew were very polite and looked smart, I didn’t find them very personable at all though. The entertainment system is fantastic and my meal was ok I guess, I requested the low fat meal, probably should’ve just had the normal one."
Cons: "The seats are not very comfortable, very hard and textured seats that just don’t feel nice at all especially on a long flight. I weight about 11 stone (154 pounds) and even I felt like I was taking up a lot of room in my seat."
Pros: "So much food!! They kept bringing food out the whole flight..The seats were great. It was a very comfortable flight"
Cons: "no complaints whatsoever!"
Cons: "They switched my gate 5 times and lost my baggage."
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."

Cons: "The crew was rude."
Pros: "Seat is very comfortable"
Cons: "After 14 hours the seats were like sitting on spikes"
Pros: "Good entertainment, food and in-flight crew"
Cons: "Because this flight was delayed it was a miracle (involving running til my throat literally bled) that I made my connection. Ground crew could not have been less helpful - even to my friend who they knew was trying to get home to attend a family funeral."
Pros: "On time."
Pros: "I wish I knew the name of the crew on this flight so that credit is given where it's due. A female steward was incredibly kind to me. She allowed me space to cry in the back of the aircraft, and also gave me her personal tissues. Her care is the only reason I'd give this flight an 'okay.'"
Cons: "Unlike the incredibly kind woman, another woman on the crew was incredibly rude to me and to other passengers on the plane. She was very obviously annoyed with nearly everything on that flight. The restrooms were beyond disgusting. I have never flown on a flight with a restroom that awful; it smelled horrible and was filthy. It was reminiscent of a portable outhouse, no exaggeration. The pillow on my seat had makeup on it."
Pros: "Aisle/window seating!"
Cons: "My entertainment unit did not work. I was graciously offered an iPad, but declined, however, the picture quality at my son's seat was also iffy. Both my long-haul flights had poor signage for toilets."
Pros: "Great seat. I did the upgrade and it was so comfortable ...good food."
Cons: "They closed the shades immediately when we took off. Creepy"
Pros: "The planes are really cool and seats were very comfortable. The part about phone/tablet holder in front of passenger is awesome. Crew was friendly"
Cons: "Vegetarian food selection could be better, need more content in movie selection"

Pros: "Audrey agent at the counter at Heathrow was amazing assisted me in getting my bags located and transfer from air malta to vigin"
Cons: "I couldn't rank the food or entertainment as I didn't try the food since it was for purchase only, and there was no entertainment offered."
Cons: "BYOjet cancelled my flight"
Pros: "reservations easy to make (like most other airlines) A water bottle, blanket, headset & sleep kit on each seat. Seats were not so close together in coach that your knees were against your chin if the guy in front of you put his seat back. The planes I was on To/from LAX-BNE felt very spacious because of the interior height. 2 free checked bags."
Cons: "The food was mediocre--doughy stuff for both meals Not very tasty. The entertainment selection was nowhere near as good as on other airlines. Very Australia-heavy music, old films & TV shows available, as well as some new ones. But no live TV channels, not even current news."
Pros: "Everything was great ! The staff very nice and the plane is absolutely amazing .."
Cons: "We paid for extra leg but there was no difference between normal and extra .."
Pros: "Great selection of entertainment. Crew was very accommodating. Food and drink service was great."
Cons: "Boarding process was slightly hectic."
Pros: "Getting off the stinky airplane...peeyoo!"
Cons: "The three hour delay in departure."
Pros: "Not much not to like about this experience except for cramped seating in coach."
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: "Virgin gave everyone meal vouchers to use at the airport during the 5 hr. delay. Also, they still offered a meal on the plane."
Cons: "I couldn't get the inflight entertainment to work. I wish they would offer devices to borrow on the plane."
Pros: "Entertainment system is great"
Cons: "Still very cramped. Cannot lower tray if you have anything in pocket (like an iPad or magazine) Should board rear section first."
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: "Kosher snacks! Thank you! Very safe and controlled Covid procedures. Made me feel safe."
Pros: "Very controlled and safe Covid procedures. Outlets and screens at every seat."
Pros: "Felt very clean and so glad they are not selling every seat"
Pros: "great everything!"
Cons: "Not delayed"

Pros: "Nice crew"
Cons: "No leg room for 6’6” person."
Cons: "Small plane, feels cramped"
Cons: "The unfortunate delay prevented me from attending my grandmother’s wake. Fewer delays would be helpful."
Pros: "Crew was friendly"
Cons: "The boarding process was rough and haphazard"
Pros: "The crew did their best to deal with delay."
Cons: "There was an absolutely awful job done by both Delta and Kayak of informing us if additional delays, new gate assignments, when the plane would be reboarded. Also, people were quite angry that the plane had to be cleaned between the time we got off and the time we reboarded. Just get us home."
Cons: "No sandwiches for sale just snack boxes"
Pros: "Everything was good/adequate, nothing was exceptional."
Pros: "The fight was very professionally carried out."
Cons: "The gate agent hurried ineffectively to board our slightly delayed flight (around 10 min). She left open the Priority Lane and boarded all pax there, having to step 4 steps to the left to scan every boarding pass."
Pros: "It was ok"
Cons: "Seat the family together"
Pros: "The crew and the comfort plus seat"
Cons: "Announcements were too loud in earphones (could damage ear drums) and entertainment was turned off while waiting 30 min for the gate to open."
Cons: "The in-flight entertainment in my seat did not work properly so I could not enjoy watching movies or shows. A minor but unfortunate inconvenience."
Cons: "Taxied at ORD for 45 minutes waiting for a gate to vacate."
Cons: "Flight was delayed 2 hours. Even though I had carry on, they checked it and this made me waste my time at baggage claim rather than gate checking. Flight attendants were miserable. Power supply didn’t work at seats."
Cons: "The seats are not very comfortable for such a long flight"
Pros: "Flight was on time. Boarded quickly with no fuss."
Pros: "Flt on time, very nice and friendly gate agent and flight attendant"
Cons: "Too tight and seats not comfortable."
Pros: "The Delta people were solicitous, efficient and brilliant the whole way through. We had not a bit of trouble. Our first class seats were comfortable, but with the supplied blanket, pillow and poor air conditioning it was a hot flight. The cabin personnel were wonderful as per usual, and my tasty gin and tonic soothed any discontent. I wish I could fly this way all the time!"
Cons: "The private contractor handling wheelchair assistance was terrible. A Delta employee theorized that they do not pay enough to attract and retain personnel. Our pre-arranged chair was not there, multiple calls by our Delta assistant finally got us a ride to the chair holding area, but after about 45 minutes we gave up and shuffled off to the security area on foot. Thank goodness my hubby is mobile enough for that to have been an option. When we abandoned our wait we were still 4th in line for an attendant to push the chair. If Delta has any responsibility in this it would be in the retention and compensation for the private contractor."
Cons: "The delta studio didn't work with Android 8"
Pros: "We were traveling with a toddler and infant but put in different row because the tickets were purchased separately. Gate staff promptly put us together and even bumped us up to delta comfort. Was a very pleasant trip. Thanks delta!"
Pros: "Free entertainment of new and older movies, free meals (although still typical airline food"
Cons: "Can someone please improve airline food?! They definitely fed us a lot, which is not something that usually happens on coach flights, but the main entrees were quite soggy."
Pros: "Ease of flight"
Pros: "Plane arrived early"
Cons: "They board the front of the plane first, meaning the aisles get clogged up slowing down the process. Also, staff kept insisting pre boarding that more people needed to check their bags because there wasn't enough overhead bin space, but there were plenty of bins not full by take off."
Cons: "There is just not enough leg room for a flight that long and the seats don't recline enough to be comfortable unless you upgrade and the tickets were already overpriced."
Pros: "Accident on way to airport, so I showed up to check bags 45 minutes before flight time. They said they couldn't get the bag to the plane..in 45 minutes? So, they put on the next flight... 6 hours later. Said I could fly without the bag... uh, no thanks. They would not look for alternatives without charging me more. Flight attendants were crabby, otherwise everything was fine. I flew British Airways a few months ago. Night and day. Seriously. Delta does not even approach having good service. There was no comparison to British Air--- Delta is not in the same league."
Pros: "Airline stewards were very friendly and pleasant."
Cons: "We booked with Delta, but were put on Air France. Even though we had our boarding passes in hand we had to wait in long, slow line for baggage tags because they would not print from kiosk. There was minimal Air France staff on duty serving thousands of passengers during busy season (July). While the lines grew larger, the staff was reduced from 4 to 2. Another long, slow line for customs, another long slow line for security=Charles De Gaulle airport was awful. We arrived at the airport 4 hours before our departure time and got to our boarding gate with no time to spare."
Cons: "Very uncomfortable, seats did not recline and seats way too close together."
Pros: "Entertainment options weren't bad. Most of the crew was polite other than one flight attendant who seemed ambivalent and unhappy to be there."
Cons: "Three hour+ flight and just one tiny bag of pretzels? And no lemon or lime wedges on the beverage cart? Plus, I have to pay extra for one checked bag. I will only fly Delta if I have to in the future. Subpar airline."
Pros: "The crew was friendly and efficient.. Our seats were comfortable for the long flight.. great amount of entertainment to enjoy for such a long flight.. and good variety of food.."
Cons: "We had a 3 hour delay due to mechanical issues.. but the safety measures the crew and staff took was very much appreciated."
Pros: "What I liked: Sky Priority privilege came with separate luggage check-in queues and early boarding"
Cons: "What I disliked: Seats were too small No beverages or snacks offered No USB or power outlets available Three different groups board before Delta Comfort (e.g. those needing more time, travelers with children, first/business class) Didn't see the value compared to a less expensive main cabin ticket"
Pros: "I was notified about the delay via text before I left for the airport, which was nice. I would not have checked my email."
Cons: "Delayed for over 2 hours. I have never flown Delta before this flight and it wasn't a great representation. The flight attendants were nice but I was in a seat near the engine and it was making really weird noises. I fly almost every two weeks, so I'm used to engine noises but this was one of the loudest/most rickety sounding flights I have ever been on.. and I have flown Spirit a few times. It just didn't feel safe. Landing scared me a little too as I have landed in O'Hare countless times and have never flown so low to the highway upon entry. It felt like we were only a couple hundred feet above the cars."
Pros: "Great short trip with an attentive crew."
Cons: "Seats were a bit uncofortable and small compared to previous flights."
Cons: "Unnecessary flight cancellation. I had friends taking the same flight at the same time at the same airport from different airlines and they came through for their customers. I received no consolation it assistance with overnight accommodations."
Cons: "The flight attendant looked like she was mad throughout the whole flight"
Pros: "We were delayed due to weather and Delta brought a cart of snacks and drinks over to the gate for us."
Pros: "The stewardesses were not only beautiful (Jessica and Kesha) but extremely attentive and friendly."
Cons: "There was nothing I didn't like about this flight"
Pros: "Everything went well"

Cons: "Delayed without explanation. Otherwise fine"
Pros: "Muslim food"
Cons: "All of the less than good, obvious!"
Cons: "Information on arrival time was not correct"

Pros: "Amazing crew"
Pros: "Seating is tight. The crew was great !"

Pros: "Crew was nice and efficient"
Cons: "Economy seats don’t recline enough."
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."
Cons: "I have ordered Wheelchair for my parents which one of my parent didn't get it on Mumbai Airport. When they arrived on Amsterdam Netherlands Airport they were dropped to the gate assigned first and once the gate changed on the fly no body came to help them moving to the new gate assigned which was far away to walk. Nobody even came to tell them that the gate has been changed. It was because of my father's alertness they didn't miss the connecting flight and when my father asked help to members on airport none of them helped my parents and other 4 co passengers which also were on wheel chairs. It was so scary experience for them that they asked me not to book any more flights with Jet Airways. I won't recommend Jet Airways to any of my friends for their parents to travel to USA. I strongly recommend you guys to take a strict action against this. This is so unacceptable."
Cons: "None of our 4 checked bags arrived with us. This was despite ample connection time (2+ hours) in Amsterdam."
Cons: "Poor food, flight attend and finally baggage missing. Overall experience is extremely bad."
Cons: "I’ve traveled a lot internationally and this was the WORST flight I’ve ever had to endure. I felt like I was being tortured and didn’t sleep at all and so slept when getting into Amsterdam rather than being able to explore the city. I was out $200 for the Airbnb (could’ve stayed in the airport cheaper) and $200 for a dinner cruise I slept through. NEVER AGAIN"
Pros: "Amsterdam airport and Rome airport were as breeze to navigate, even only knowing English"
Pros: "Face recognition was amazing"
Cons: "Too hot on plane"
Pros: "Friendly crew."
Cons: "So many people on a 747!!"
Pros: "Great on board service from a very professional crew."
Cons: "Can't think of a thing."
Cons: "Didn’t happen."
Cons: "Our two hour connection in Paris became 30 minutes because Air France was late in leaving Washington. So our luggage didn't make to to KLM to Amsterdam. My poor rating was because the luggage handling was really poor. Lots of flights from Paris to Amsterdam (almost hourly), but my bag showed up 12 hours later. My wife's bag took 36 hours. And yes, we checked in together. There were lots of confusing messages"
Pros: "Friendly attendants. Decent food, and frequent snacks and beverages."
Cons: "No charging ports for electronic devices."
Cons: "The streaming service didn’t work"
Pros: "On both of my flights to New York City, I was amazed at how friendly and helpful the flight attendants were to the passengers. On my short flight from Basel to Amsterdam, a young French speaking girl was concerned about how to manage getting to her next gate. The flight attendants talked to her and arranged for someone to take her there. On my longer flight from Amsterdam to New York City, there was a customer who was in distress about missing a previous flight and not making it to her connecting flight in New York. One of the flight attendants reassured her until she stopped crying and calmed down. That same flight attendant was always so positive and cheerful in all she did. The rest of the crew was top notch. This was my best experience flying in such a long time. Well done, KLM crews of flights 1984 and 0645 on July 10!"
Pros: "Good multi media access and content"
Pros: "Crew was very helpful.food"
Cons: "Food was not upto the mark."
Pros: "From pre-boarding, to boarding, to the food, and the attentiveness, everything was top notch! The cleanliness of the plane was only topped by the friendliness of the crew."
Cons: "The flight was marked at almost 11hrs but ended up being only 9...not a negative other than it meant not spending as much time on board!"
Pros: "Efficiency and speed of boarding was acceptable. I have no complaints about that aspect. The Comfort+ seats were worth the upgrade, pretty comfortable and reasonable legroom unless you have a big carry on stowed under the seat in front of you."
Cons: "The first announcement they made to all of us in the economy section was thay they did not have any headphones for anyone but business class. I was told when I booked the seat that the headphones would be complementary. So I did not bother to bring any assuming they were going to keep their word; I figure I'd make it work and watch a movie without sound. If that isn't bad enough midway through my nine hour flight my monitor went out and would not turn back on."
Cons: "The fact that there are different airline carriers for one flight is hard. In my second flight they made me check a bag which was considered a carry on during my first flight"
Pros: "The cabin crew were fantastic and funny"
Cons: "Tiny seats"
Pros: "Food and staff were great"
Cons: "Entertainment system old and not as many options as other KLM flight. No power on aircraft for charging"
Pros: "KLM fed a sandwich even though the flight was only 2 hours. The crew was pleasant. Getting through the Amsterdam airport to catch a connecting flight with only an hour to do so was no big deal. Airport staff was pleasant and helpful."
Pros: "Food and drink service"
Cons: "Boarding pass facility"
Pros: "I ended up getting home with less delay than originally predicted. I guess that's a good thing Also delta customer service was super polite and trying to help when I called"
Cons: "Delay again... seems to be pretty frequent on KLM flights at least on the ones I flew with in the past 4 years... this time it was 3hours wait due to a technical issue... no alternative flight option and we ended up getting a very old plane as a replacement. In addition people at info terminals are disorganized and not kind at all.."
Pros: "Having exit aisle made a huge difference in comfort Crew were EXCELLENT"
Cons: "Food was not very good Tasteless and rubbery"
Cons: "Fewer entertainment options than the delta flight. I got excited with that first flight."
Pros: "KLM Is an impressive flying experience. We enjoyed the comfortable seats, the in-flight entertainment, and the food. The flight attendants are top notch as well."
Cons: "The only complaint I have regarding my most recent flight was the incredibly rude service staff whom we experienced at the front counter at check-in. After a harrowing cab ride to the airport in which our driver continuously ignored my request to follow the GPS insisting that he knew faster shortcuts, we arrived 40 minutes later than intended. Additionally he dropped us off at the wrong terminal such that we finally arrived at the KLM gate an hour later than we had planned. This was especially frustrating as we are traveling with two small children and made every effort to be punctual and leave early to be sure we got there with time to spare. Not the case today. All of that I could deal with, but when we arrived at the KLM counter, and I apologized to the attendant staff member that we were late and explained that our cab driver got lost, she responded by chastising us first in Spanish and then in broken English. She made sure to make it clear to us that it was our fault and we should not blame the Argentinian cabdriver. The cabdriver was not actually Argentinian, but that is totally besides the point. I was totally taken aback to be treated so rudely as a greeting at the airline counter. My wife share the same sentiment. Nothing like this has ever happened to us before. Thank God, every single airport personnel and of course KLM staff member on board was incredibly kind and accommodating of our children subsequent to this. It saved what otherwise could've been a terrible experience."
Cons: "US pre-clearance involves a second run through security, which required again getting all liquids into one place. I also means arriving another 20 minutes early at Dublin airport. I suppose this affects every carrier from Dublin to US."
Cons: "There were 3 travelers in our family and we were not seated together. I assumed the flight was full but to our surprise there were empty seats that would allow us to be together. Serving of meals and drinks were slow although the food was better this time compared to our Chicago to Dublin trip. Movie selections were poor."
Cons: "We didn't have inflight entertainment at all. 1/43 the tvs were broken. our airplane was changed which we were supposed to be emailed about and never was. Only got 1 soft drink on an 8.5 hr flight."
Pros: "The food was quite delicious. I liked the movie selections."
Cons: "Getting stuck in Detroit, failure to communicate, no food or water when we had waited on the tarmac over two hours in Detroit. Still no entertainment but air came back at hour three, then at 3.5 hours being told we are stuck in Detroit. Lost luggage, all a mess. Completely. No help to rebook, so I stayed in Detroit and got to the airport early the next morning and paid my own way to Omaha, through Chicago. Again, no help from the Aer Lingus hotline (tried/on hold for 2.5 hours with no human service) or the United desk."
Pros: "The crew were the best very personable"
Pros: "Great flight on this flight. Reagular earbuds work with entertainment system, seats were very comfortable with a bit of more leg room, again, the food was great."
Cons: "Vegetarian meal had to be ordered ahead of time."
Pros: "We had a very pleasant experience with Aer Lingus and will not fly to/from Ireland on any other airline from now on!"
Pros: "Free movies and tv"
Cons: "Had to go through security twice"
Cons: "Seating was cramped. Food was fair at best."
Cons: "Chicken salad sandwich was soggy. All other food service and choices were excellent"
Cons: "I wrote to Aer Lingus many times to change my son's flight (I couldn't book him on the proper flight due to an issue on the Aer Lingus web site). I had to wait on hold for hours, and even though they admitted the mistake was theirs would not change his flight to match ours (which we booked via KAYAK)."
Pros: "Everything was smooth, movie selection was good, food was good."
Cons: "Our flight attendant seemed a bit grouchy the whole flight, but all the other ones were warm and hospitable."
Pros: "The crew is helpful and efficient. Not a whole lot of smiling. The food is good. Even though we ran out of the chicken choice for dinner ( which was my first choice), since I was sitting in the last row I was left with beef-chili. It was very good.For snack I had the chicken sandwich and that was excellent as well. The leg room is ok. My only problem is the entertainment. The selection is limited. Some of the movies are old ( Goodfellas, Godfather). Maybe 30 movies overall and that includes the animated ones and documentaries. The TV selection is ok. I usually use closed caption that was not available for most of the movies."
Pros: "My in flight entertainment screen did not work."
Cons: "on flight from London to Dublin my luggage got lost in Dublin terminal. The staff at the connecting flight counter went way out of their way to find it and escort me all the way through Irish customs to the on-site American customs and Immigration. Without their help I would have missed the flight from Dublin to Chicago."
Cons: "Read above"
Pros: "The crew was attentive in all matters, but we especially appreciated the notice from the captain about the views out the windows of Greenland, which were spectacular. . Aer Lingus is slightly better than many other airlines in terms of the amount of space that is allotted to economy class seats."
Cons: "Food quality was uneven, but probably no worse than other airlines."
Pros: "Pilots and crew were courteous and professional"
Cons: "Cabin temperature was too cool."
Pros: "Good ride good people!"
Cons: "I would have liked more food pass throughs"
Pros: "The crew were nice and you could tell they were frustrated with the situations we were in as well. The food was pretty good, and entertainment was adequate for the transatlantic flights."
Cons: "We have a total of 4 flights with three legs of our travel. Aer Lingus failed to successfully complete any of them without substantial delays and cancellations. Every flight was botched, and three of them required us to sit on he plane on the runaway for substantial amounts of time. I'll be making a complaint with the Better Business Bureau and never flying with them again. They were abysmal, and the worst experience I've ever had flying."
Pros: "variety of movies available especially Irish movies and shorts"
Cons: "Seating space too cramped"
Pros: "Great friendly staff, safe flight. Thanks."
Pros: "Food was decent; crew were very busy and decent (but see other panel). Flight crew kept us informed. The entertainment possibilities are endless, and I like being able to see where we are on the maps."
Cons: "I don't expect the crew to gush at us, but they seem a bit put out when you ask them a question. The leg space was just not sufficient for an 8-hour flight. Very hard to get comfortable, and it is very chilly in the cabin."
Pros: "Grainne from Aer Lingus upgraded me when I checked in. It made for a fantastic flight where I could sleep, eat, drink, and be merry"
Cons: "They boarding time listed on my pass was way too early, but nothing else!"
Pros: "Crew was extremely friendly; boarding was orderly and quick."
Cons: "The seats were extremely close together. I'm very short, and I lacked room for my knees. The food was dreadful."
Pros: "The lady at checkin was very gracious and found seats for all of us together. I was also thankful that she gave us exit row seats"
Cons: "Aer Lingus website is difficult to navigate. Boarding passes do not transfer electronically to my smart phone. Seats are too hard and are therefore uncomfortable. Entertainment screen did not respond to touch very well. Screen crashed twice during the trip. Earphones only worked in one ear and had poor sound quality."
Cons: "no coffee service on outbound flight. had to pay for water on connecting flight."
Pros: "Claudia at the boarding gate, she was friendly and trying to make a difficult situation better. The Flight attendants were professionally dressed and presented a good image."
Cons: "Not the airline's fault, but being "randomly" selected for yet another security check was painful. The young lad taking me back through the process really didnt seem to have a full grasp on the process. Many of the seats required assistance in coming back from a reclined position. The selection of movies wasn't that spectacular, but I made do as best as possible. The meals, were adequate at best, and having to pay for spirits was also an additional negative having already paid for the trans-Atlantic journey."
Cons: "bags were not correctly tagged all the way through from Madrid to Cleveland by partner Iberia."
Cons: "Video didn't work. System was rebooted, but some continued to freeze up. Frustrating if you wanted to watch a movie."
Pros: "Doing customs and immigration in Ireland instead of ohare. Would have been hard to make our connection otherwise"
Cons: "Unable to pick seats in advance"
Pros: "Aer Lingus is so patient! We misread when we were to board so we ended up a bit late. Everyone was gracious about it."
Pros: "The seats are comfortable and the movie choices were excellent, Both flights were on time."
Cons: "Waited at ORD for 45 minutes for flight check in desk to open. Process should be automated or at least the desk occupied for airports with long TSA lines. I did request decaf coffee and never saw the stewardess again. Precheck was a waste of time. Our group had to wait in line for our baggage tags because online system not coordinated with system in airport. The crew member I had in my aisle, on the return flight, was abrupt! Dinner tray delivery and pick up was slow, at least an hour after receiving the tray. Crew member offered me tea or coffee and assumed I did not want my sandwich when I responded no to those two choices. Crew seems to be distressed when water is requested."
Pros: "The crew was courteous."
Cons: "The food tray serving was small . I was too shy to ask for more."
Pros: "It was great to have a selection of shows you could watch for free on your own screen."
Cons: "A lot of the controllers/remotes for the tvs didn't work. combine that with non-sensitive screens made it difficult to navigate menus. Some screens could only be used with the controller so if your controller was one that didn't work, you had to have an attendant reset your whole screen to exit the menu."
Pros: "That long flight was awesome! So many extra seats to choose from and I could spread out. The crew was very polite as well. Lastly the movie selection was great!"
Cons: "I would change the headphone jack on the seats to standard size to allow people to use their own headphones."
Pros: "same as above"
Cons: "same as above"
Cons: "No vegetarian option for meals"
Cons: "This was my first time flying Aer Lingus and the overall experience was pretty disappointing. A couple of major problems - 1. My entertainment system for watching movies had major problems throughout the flight. The movie froze and I was forced to reset 6 different times throughout the flight. This is unacceptable. 2. The gentleman's chair in front of me was broken - once it was in the reclined position it would not go back into the upright position so I had very limited space especially when eating. The flight attendants kept trying to move it back into the upright position but it never really was fixed. 3. The plug in for ear phones is very outdated and has a two prong plug in. The ear phones provided in flight do work but the sound is very low quality and fuzzy. It would be nice to have the option to plug in my own headphones, however because normal headphones are a one prong plug in, they do not work. 4. Your arm rests do not fold up all the way. Why? This is a major flaw in the seat design and makes it impossible to stretch out if there is an empty seat next to you. 5. Passengers have to pay out of pocket for alcoholic beverages on international flights. This was disappointing as I usually fly Delta and they are included with all international flights."
Pros: "Friendly Flight Crews"
Pros: "The crew were incredibly capable and helpful, very friendly. Food and entertainment was exemplary. The entire experience was a cut above any other airline we've flown with. Thank you!"
Pros: "My family of 3 had assigned seats in 3 different rows and we have a 5 year old. As soon as we checked in, the staff ensured that at least 2 of us could sit together and had new tickets ready for us when we got to the gate. It made what could have been a very stressful situation, very easy to manage!"
Pros: "Great, smooth flight"
Pros: "Clearing US customs in Dublin on return flight a real bonus. Smooth connections in Dublin."
Cons: "Zero dark thirty departure time at LHR was challenging. Departure lounges in T2 lacked amenities."
Pros: "Michelle and Rafal took great care of us. I am 6 months pregnant and they made sure I had plenty to drink and we're very helpful in regards to me getting up and walking around."
Cons: "Food was small portions and wasn't a great selection."
Pros: "I had a connecting flight with Aer Lingus and my flight before was delayed. A young lad escorted me to my gate, helping me bypass lines at security and customs. Got to my flight on time thanks to them being proactive. Can't thank them enough!"
Cons: "Again forced to pay for a premium seat. Plane was not full. Plenty of so called premium seats and non premium seats available."
Cons: "3 h de retard !!!! 2 h passe dans l avion puis on nous fait change d avion pour en prendre un autre mais on attend encore !!!! Le pire voyage de ma vie !!!!"
Pros: "The flight itself was fantastic, Aer Lingus should be highly comended. Pleasant and cheerful, attentive to needs. Very happy with the airline."
Cons: "Nothing bad to say"
