Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Staff were very good . Business class very comfortable. I had low salt menu which was very comforting to be able to choose as salt not good for me."

Cons: "Seats were a little close, especially for a long flight, with meals."
Pros: "As always crew magnificent"
Pros: "Amazing aircraft! Amazing crew!"
Pros: "Everything normal as expected on an economy class nothing special."
Cons: "Firstly If the meals we pre booked were actually given to us. Secondly what’s the point of giving menus to coustomer to choose their meal when food availability is limited. Don’t set false expectations to your customer when you can’t deliver on them."
Pros: "Good flight"
Pros: "Crews were excellent. Luggage came out very fast. Flight was very comfortable."
Cons: "Crew needs more booster, perhaps? so they can share some smiles and warm gestures like what we experienced during flight from Singapore to Doha. Ability to choose kids' meal 24 hours before flight. we don't know the avail menu, hence we ordered on outbound only, unable to change afterwards."
Pros: "nice crew, great service"
Pros: "seat was great"
Cons: "flight attendant should be nicer"
Pros: "exellent in everything"
Cons: "just did not like the baggage policy for carry on"
Pros: "Good crew, fair choice of food and drinks and served whenever you want it. Good array of entertainment on offer but our flight was a 'sleeper' so after a fumble with the controls and the limited new releases, I opted to read instead. Not sure we like the Dreamliner configuration and levels of comfort more than the 777 or Airbus offerings but it was fine."
Cons: "A couple on our flight decided it was OK to have their 4-year old run around the cabin shrieking and causing a lot of fuss. Most of us in the cabin complained but these parents were pathetically weak and elected to allow it to continue. No sleep... spoiled experience.. miserable flight in this respect. Terrible Business Lounge 'Aspire' in Gatwick; dirty and poorly equipped - not even Prosecco on offer without paying £5 for a small glass. Qatar should stop using this dreadful place. Crew seemed to have stopped referring to the passengers by name and offer a less-personalised service in Business than we have become accustomed to. The food choices while good, have been paired back as have the selection of wines."
Pros: "The cabin crew was fantastic and made the experience very positive."
Cons: "The food was not of the quality I would have expected from the expectation created by the airlines marketing."
Pros: "There was adequate seat room. The device was good."
Cons: "There was nothing I didn’t like."
Pros: "Last row seats are never optimal but tha flight attendants were above par!!!"
Cons: "Wonderful people! Cannot day enough about the difference that makes."
Pros: "US airlines should model Qatar. New plans with exceeding long courtious staff who are happy to make your flight as comfortable and pleasant as possible."
Cons: "The food was actually very good, nothing was an extra charge and the flight attendants were wonderful. US airlines should really do a better job!"
Cons: "Boarding process, Smart Phone App, food quality, Announcemebts, Time to unboard the plane, flight information displays at Doha are not easy to find the flight info"
Cons: "Qatar Airlines charged us a 600 Euro fee for missing a flight even though we contacted them before to explain the circumstances beyond our control."
Cons: "I was put on another flight eight hours later even though I had already checked in. I actually traveled with Cathay Pacific."
Pros: "Video on Demand at each seat in coach. Friendly staff. Also patient staff, what with the languages they have to cover with each flight. The airline goes everywhere so it’s impossible to say what anyone will be speaking."
Cons: "Wrost app I don’t advise any one use it cause"
Cons: "Although the loading Zone was given as Zone 1, boarding was chaotic because the fround crew was incredibly inefficient. The announcement was totally mumbled and badly managed, Why cant the boarding at Cochin be organised like queues for each zone so that the passengers do not crowd in a mad rush near the gate as if the fliht will leave without them. As in Doha have different seating area for different zones and the ground crew should be trained to be firm to allow only passengers with boarding."
Pros: "I liked how kind and attentive the staff were."
Cons: "The connection in Doha was a pain...one has to one end of the airport to the other...go through security and then come ALL THE WAY BACK! UGH!"

Pros: "Crew are great and entertainment options are good."
Cons: "The seats are quite uncomfortable and small. Really struggled to get comfortable."
Cons: "The customer service is terrible. They refused to accommodate me for a 19 hour layover with a complimentary airport hotel stay, claiming there was an earlier flight--that was still 12 hours away, that I would have to pay to book anyway. Pure scam to get you to pay to upgrade your flight, pay for hotel or be condemned to stay in there airport for a whole day. Never ever again! Don't fly them!"
Pros: "Over all it was a good experience"
Cons: "IEvery thing was fine."
Pros: "Very kind and helping crew.. professional and helpfull"
Cons: "I dont have anything to complain about"
Pros: "It was not a full flight. It was ok."
Cons: "Well, I noticed when the person in front of me reclined their seat, I had a hard time adjusting the entertainment screen so I could see it properly."
Cons: "No WiFi"
Cons: "Food was below average Could have been better for elderly people.. Boarding: No wheel chair assist. asked for 2 wheel chair assist - for myself and my spouse..but got for only one.had to wait till last min at boarding where tickets where issued as no one was available..hurried in last min to security gate."
Cons: "Attendant was rude and never really finished service, never remembered any requests and consistently skipped guests when providing food or drink service, cabin kept oscillating between either too hot or too cold."
Cons: "I had to go through 4 passport inspections by Qatar, was that really necessary? 3 of them within 10 min. 1 before the security check at the gate, 1 after and one more just before boarding."

Cons: "One economy cabin as packed with people and the other economy cabin had only 1 person per row. Spread people out more so that they aren't really uncomfortable for a 12 hour flight."
Pros: "Lots of disruptive kids, one of the ethnically chinese (sorry didn't catch her name) was very attentive and supportive of parents trying to keep their kids happy on a twelve hour flight."
Cons: "Long flight, infrequent water distribution, half the staff just chatting in the back. Filthy bathrooms not cleaned in flight."
Pros: "Seat leg room is very decent"
Cons: "very old planes with no wifi. Food overall was terrible. So called 5 star airline."
Pros: "It just felt like you are constantly given food and drinks while having an endless amount of entertainment at your fingertips."
Pros: "Seats comfortable. Food was good."
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: "Crew was very attentive...food selection was excellent"
Cons: "Seats were really old and outdated"
Pros: "The food was good. The lane was comfortable"
Cons: "The flight was nearly full, and the 767 is a large aircraft. I think it would be preferable if Virgin Atlantic would board the plane by zones, similar to other airlines."

Pros: "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."
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."
Cons: "Getting home 5 hrs later than planned"
Pros: "Meals were excellent and plane was very clean. Economy delight is definitely an upgrade worth considering with extra leg room and space in front of you in general."
Cons: "Boarding can get crowded so don't be in a rush"
Pros: "Provides the service you'd expect from an international carrier. Boarded on time, seat actually reclines, meals, baggage, seat assignments are included in the price. Staff treat you well and the price isn't bad."
Cons: "Virgin website is slow and not intuitive. Couldn't get seat assignment until i was at the gate. No explanation why. Boarding announcements delivered via ESP. Half of the passengers were still in the boarding area because no one heard announcements. Arrived 30 min early but had to wait on the tarmac for 45 min for a parking gate. Baggage delivery at JFK took forever."
Pros: "Good collection of movies"
Cons: "To pay for luggage for international flights while on their website it says i dont have to pay if im going to South Africa. The food was not so great."
Pros: "Super friendly and helpful crew, food etc was fantastic very enjoyable flight. Thank you"
Pros: "Food was great. Friendly stas staff."

Cons: "For boarding, we had to walk a rather far distance due to construction."
Pros: "Crew were friendly and courteous"
Cons: "Poor drink selection. Food mediocre. I felt like I was in the living room of the Beverley Hillbillies. Loud people, dressed like slobs. No manners"
Cons: "luggage never made it to Boston? Don't know who's fault it was.Problem was corrected."
Cons: "Seatback TV is of the worst quality among airlines. They really need to upgrade those. They don’t nearly give enough beverage and water. The gate wasn’t announced till last minute. There was no group priorities when boarding. Process was chaotic. Food was meh. No internet."
Cons: "Everything incl customer service at the airport"
Pros: "Staff on this flight were excellent"
Pros: "The boarding, the seats."
Cons: "The food was so-so, and I did not get my choices, perhaps because I was at the back."

Pros: "Staff was very friendly"
Cons: "Headphone jacks are costume, could not use my own."
Pros: "Flight attendants were excellent!"
Cons: "No indication of where to go to get to connecting flight. Luckily we had 2 1/2 hours to find the flight."
Pros: "Crew was very nice helpful and attentionate Entertainment had plenty of variety maybe not so many new movies but enough to find one you have not seen or classic you could watch again Food was good"

Pros: "I was very impressed by the generosity you show concerning food och drink. the staff was kind and glad."
Cons: "I never understood how to connect the earphones to the screen so I couldn't ser any movie. But - I could have asked the staff of course ..."
Pros: "We paid extra for more legroom and it was totally worth it."
Cons: "The regular seats were so lacking in leg room that I could not cross my legs, reach the floor to get my glasses when I dropped them, or even get my carry-on out. There is no way to get into the "brace for impact position" with arms over your head and head in your lap! This is really unsafe, not to mention really uncomfortable. The flight was long, so comfort would be nice! Our first flight was regular seats and I was pretty miserable and I am a slender woman 5'6". The extra 3" was great, and we had to pay more on the return trip. The FAA should be investigating seat size and safety on planes."
Pros: "Entertainment selection Cabin Service associates were very good WiFi service available"
Cons: "The planes are old and tired, new 787s on this route are long overdue. Thomson's premium service is an improved offering over Virgin and offers more inclusive extras such as lounge access. There is no wonder wall on the 747 only a wonder "basket" If you are flying from Gatwick, upgrading to premium isn't worth it. Go to upper class or fly with another airline. Check in was quicker for Economy passengers and it proved a challenge to work past the economy passengers during boarding to get to the premium agent."
Pros: "Hard product and food"
Cons: "Crew need to realise their voices travel and some conversations the whole upper cabin don't need to hear"
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: "Virgin Premium economy offers a great up-grade on economy. Seperate check in (faster), seperate boarding (earlier), better food, service and more room than economy."
Cons: "There appears to have been an increase in cost above that you expect percentage wise. There has been reduction in the quality of the food."
Pros: "I've had knee surgery and the flight attendants were very accommodating as to "make" and ice pack for me. The recline of the seats was impecible. The food was great. Overall, great flight."
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: "Neat plane, good food and service"
Cons: "The entertainment screen was very dark. To bad since there was an ample selection of movies."
Pros: "Getting to Barbados from Manchester airport is convenient"
Cons: "The light weight on a long haul flight do not work anything over four hours you need some form of comfortability and virgin got it wrong with the seats .. yes I know the industry is all about making and saving money but you also need to Remember that most of this flight you will be sat down for"
Pros: "Friendly, helpful, efficient staff on the ground & in the air. Great selection of movies, tv, music for each person flying. Comfortable flight. Great beverage & food choices."
Pros: "The service, the service. My wife got a cheese and fruit platter after dinner. Crew went out of their way to make us feel special and welcomed. Excellent service."
Cons: "Nothing to complain about."
Pros: "I liked the food and refreshments and the on flight entertainment was good.."
Cons: "I didn't like the boarding process.every other flight I've been on they board plane by rows.on this flight everyone was boarding at same time which was annoying and held up the boarding process.."
Cons: "BYOjet cancelled my flight"
Pros: "Virgin Atlantic had a very attractive decor.Food was great& staff as well. Polite and professional ."
Cons: "The seat I had was a bit snug leg wise and recline wise. Could not get comfortable at all."
Pros: "Al comprar el ticket no se aclaraba que a pesar de ser un vuelo internacional se debia pagar por las valijas. Venia de hacer 5 vuelos internos por Australia y en todos los casos tanto Jet como Quantas aclaraban que se debia pagar por el adicional!!!"
Pros: "All the meals and movies included"
Pros: "It was a great experince we enjoy the flight other than the delay on the luggage"
Cons: "one of my luggage was lost and delayed for 2hrs. We waited at the Airport for the luggage to arrive."
Pros: "I liked entertainment options on your phone but at the same time there was nowhere to plug your phone if it ran out of battery."
Cons: "The boarding was good but we did not depart o time which did not cause us to be on time to our destination. It was international flight for almost 4 hours and there was no foodie snacks serve. Only tea or coffee. For a international flight more than 2 hours you should offer something else, soda juices and a snack at the very least. I guess the reason why I am feeling this ways is because I flew with virgin a couple years back to London and was so impressed by he service and the airline and the great quality modern vibe. It was the W hotels of the airlines industry and this time I really want impressed."
Pros: "Virgin does phenomenal service; I wish delta would copy their level of service."
Pros: "Major issue: No information in advance of problems associated with transfer at Heathrow that required going from Terminal 5 to Terminal 3-- requireing a lot of walking, stress, time and security checks."

Cons: "Pilot had no control over turbulence during last 3H of flight. He did his best to minimize but still a jittery"
Pros: "Boarded in good time, friendly crew, flight was comfortable, entertainment was good - and most importantly, landed on time!"
Pros: "I flew standby (for the first time) to London and check in team in NYC was great."

Pros: "Entertainment was good and there was a choice of food."
Cons: "The crew sucked."

Cons: "KAYAK did not informed us we have to pay for our luggage!"

Cons: "I couldn't get both of my boarding passes printed in London so I had to get it from an agent in Minneapolis. I hate that it's so hard to get a seat assigned and a boarding pass before the trip."
Pros: "The delta crew both ways between Portland and London was excellent! They saw to our every need and were smiling every air mile of the way. Plane"
Cons: "Need to have food choices available for those with allergies. Almost everything had gluten and soy in it and I am very allergic to those. I had to give away all snacks and most of my food. Even in comfort+ class the seats are tiny with little legroom. Also, please clean the bathroom every few hours"
Pros: "Food was so good. Crew was also very nice."
Pros: "Entertainment and food and service were great."
Pros: "It was horrible. Delta really should have cancelled and refunded the flight altogether."
Pros: "Amazing service and F&B offered was wonderful"
Pros: "Crew were friendly. Food was ok. Gave us lunch, snacks, warm cookie and sandwich/dinner for 9 hour flight. Needed all of it."

Cons: "No complaints!"
Pros: "Everything. Food, staff, checking in. All were great"
Cons: "Would have preferred they let me choose a window seat. I wasn’t given the option"
Pros: "The crew where extremely friendly, helpful and visible. As the flight was being boarded the gate agent saw me with my cane and she upgraded me to a seat closer to the front of the plane without being asked. Those extra little touches are appreciated"
Pros: "The crew were kind and courteous. The seat was comfortable."
Pros: "Boarding was swift and cabin crew where attentive. Baggage drop was swift and luggage arrived quickly. Global entry at ATL was swift."

Pros: "Decent service"
Cons: "I booked with KLM (sky team) two separate return bookings on via SKY TEAM JFK > heathrow (delta) Heathrow > Amsterdam (klm) On the return leg, I couldn’t check my bag all the way through to JFK even though I stayed on SKY TEAM carriers. That should be possible, otherwise the value of staying in SKY TEAM isn’t as valuable to me."
Pros: "Not on time"
Cons: "2 hour delay"
Cons: "One of the older male flight attendants was not polite. Got a ride, short response when asking him for anything."
Pros: "Good films"
Cons: "Seats cramped, legroom bad"
Pros: "Very friendly crew"
Cons: "Lack of subtitles on available movies & series"
Cons: "I had the feeling they were short on crew staff, they were barely checking and I called them a couple of times, the blue light was on but no one came to check what I needed. At first the reading lights were not working and they got those reset at least. One choice of food was not available anymore once they got to our seats."
Pros: "Staff were friendly and attentive. Boarding was good - efficient and quick."
Cons: "Seats were not that comfortable. Aircraft very noisy. Competition offers a much better service. Transfer in Atlanta was a nightmare, taking almost two hours from landing to getting to the domestic gate for the next sector. only three immigration staff working."
Pros: "The variety of what you could listen to or watch. Liked the way the seats reclined. Plenty of leg room (I am short)."
Pros: "There were alot of good movies to choose from, and the food wasn't bad."

Pros: "Crew, food was good, comfort"
Cons: "The boarding .. We had to climb the steps to get in .. But the crew apologised"
Pros: "Extra leg room with Sky priority"
Cons: "We upgraded to Sky priority but we're not allowed to load with Sky priority. They made us wait for Zone 3. We also did not get the designated overhead space we paid for and had to put our bags under the seat in front of us. A bit disappointing to pay $240 extra and not get what we paid for."
Cons: "The entry into the Atlanta airport after landing was somewhat chaotic. We were backed up circling before landing for ~ 1 hour and there seemed to be an unusually large number of folks trying to get through customs/security - noe Delta's fault but an unwelcome experience after being in the air for 8+ hours."
Pros: "Super friendly and attentive crew. Good food. Nice new seats. Great tv entertainment options!"
Pros: "The crew were nice"
Cons: "The wifi didn't work at all, the entertainment system wasn't working until they did a reboot during the flight"
Pros: "I like Delta empowering women."
Pros: "Meal quality has improved"
Pros: "Plenty of movies and music to entertain"
Cons: "Economy seats have no leg room and seats are very uncomfortable to your back during a 8hr flight. Flight attendants skipped rows for drinks, snacks, etc and would have to be called back. Paying close to a thousand per ticket, you'd expect a little better experience but oh well."
Pros: "Service was good. Attendants polite. Information good."
Pros: "There wasn't much to like. Just about everything was wrong. The plane was a newish 787, so it didn't feel old. Boarding went well because we complained about how tired we, at 70+, were because the flight was late and we'd been standing up; this resulted in us being boarded with some of the latish priority passengers."
Cons: "Everything, really. The plane was very crowded; small seats, little leg room. The meals were mediocre and the cabin staff were just barely the good side of unhelpful, officious and unfriendly The flight was inexplicably 2 hours or more late in excellent weather. No apologies given, the flight that was originally scheduled for 8 pm left close to 11 pm. While boarding the only light is a purplish ambient lighting that made it impossible to read anything, including the safety material, until the inflight entertainment was loaded up (the lights are only controlled through software-actuated virtual buttons on the screen). The inflight entertainment system is hard to use, too, designed by idiots for use by geniuses. But the very worst thing was the stress caused by Virgin Atlantic in just about guaranteeing that we would miss this flight. On our outbound voyage in January, VA, for reasons nobody knows, booked an ADDITIONAL leg from JHB to CPT on BA at 12:30 pm, even though we were already ON the earlier 9:30 BA flight we'd booked and paid for. Then, when we didn't show up for this spurious flight (because we were already in the air) we didn't book (BA swears they have evidence that VA made this booking), our return flight CPT to JBG three months later was cancelled WITHOUT OUR KNOWLEDGE. If I hadn't been interested in knowing, the day before the flight, if the return BA flight had a meal, I would have showed up at the CPT airport in April and discovered that I had no way to get to the VA flight in JHB! As it was I spent an entire day trying to get back on the flight I'd already paid for. I advise EVERYONE who uses VA to reconfirm flights over and over. There is still no explanation for this. I will never NEVER fly VA again. They are not to be trusted."
Cons: "Entertainment was working, watching movie when they said done didn't have do they were resetting system. They tried twice taking over an hour and it never came back on for anyone..... :("
Pros: "Boarding and deplaning were efficient. Crew was good. Seats were comfortable."

Cons: "Cancelling my ticket and put me on another flight Then lost my bag I didn’t receive my bag in final destination"
Pros: "MAN-MUC & MUC-CPH via LH. Business class. LH Businesss class is middle seat of 3 is empty and larger amounts of baggage plus you have access to lounges. Both planes flew and arrived reasonably on time, which is what I look for.And I got all the Business Class extras."
Cons: "Security at Manchester was very slow - long enough make me ill from standing in one place too long. But then I was well looked after. The meals on both flights were identical; I don't think it can be a big problem to correct that. I took a long time to get accepted by the WiFi in the two lounges."
Cons: "Food and rounds for drinks"
Pros: "Fairly comfortable, good cabin crew"
Cons: "Lost baggage - horrendously slow lost baggage department in Athens. Spent 1 hour + standing in line. Bag still hasn't shown up"

Cons: "Could have done with pre dinner drinks a bit quicker"
Pros: "Perfectly okay flight, slept through with no disturbances. Crew were friendly enough and landed fine. Airport took me a while to figure out though."
Pros: "Everything! The service of the flight attendants, in full ugh entertainment."
Cons: "Everything was great. I would say that I didn't like the automation and self serve check in at Munich Airport not because it wasn't easy or efficient, but because I love human interactions. I know this is the way society is tending, towards automation, but I don't love it. I prefer to speak to a real person. Thank you for reading."
Cons: "They don't have entertainment"
Pros: "The crew was excellent, friendly, and attentive, especially paying attention to my kids. The pilot and his crew did a great job during the flight as well. Thank them all for a pleasant and safe flight!"
Cons: "The only concern I have is regarding the diet. During the shorter flight, from Budapest to Frankfurt, the stewardess informed me that she couldn't get me gluten-free meal/snack. I understand that catering to special diet needs is not easy but following a gluten-free diet is not my choice, it is something I need to deal and live with on a daily basis. I felt disappointed since I had a long trip ahead of me, and I know that I, just like all the other passengers, had paid for the flight that should include the meal as well. Thank you for reading my concern and trying to see it from me, the passenger's point of view."
Pros: "Quick flight and very comfortable."
Pros: "Overall it was good trip!"
Cons: "No issues at all"
Cons: "Having to pay to sit together."
Pros: "Lufthansa over Thomas Cook any day"
Cons: "The business class seats is exactly like the economy seats"
Cons: "Flight canceled"
Pros: "Good space in cabin compared to other airlines and excellent service by crew"
Cons: "Benefits for frequent flyers and senators have been eroded significantly . also it has been made much harder to achieve status. In the past, complimentary upgrades were done frequently. nowadays it doesn't happen anymore. For someone who is flying approximately 30 times per year with star alliance, this is dissatisfying. I also don't understand why my preferences from my profile are not used in the pre-allocation of my seat."
Pros: "Standard Lufthansa short haul, Crew attentive"
Cons: "arrived off stand"
Pros: "Great service !!!!"
Cons: "The return leg has been nothing but a disaster, in every way possible, specifically my time and financially. At no point in the booking process, when I paid over $800 for the trip, was I told that I needed a specific travel visa (Canadian ETA) to fly back into Toronto for my return flight. Subsequently when I checked in for my flight yesterday morning in Manchester, England, I did not have the required travel documents and had to be rerouted onto a flight into the U.S. at a cost to me of $350. The rerouted flight got me to Washington Dulles airport, where I then had to purchase a second flight to get me home to Cleveland, Ohio, at an additional/extra cost of $450. MY CAR IS PARKED AT TORONTO PEARSON INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT!!! I am having to now rent a car and drive there tomorrow (Friday) to collect my car, at another additional cost of $100 plus a 10-hour round trip. Due to the lack of information and communication on your companies behalf, I am down close to a $1,000 and will lose 2-days in work as of the additional days I am having to travel back to Toronto to collect my vehicle. I would appreciate contact from your organization to find the avenue I need to take for compensation of my time and finances. Regards"
Pros: "The food was kind of nice"
Cons: "Hardly any leg room, hardly any elbow room, got middle sitting on all my flights and the lay overs were terrible and last but not least my baggage were I had my holiday did not show up for two days. When it did I tipped the driver 20 pounds as he deserved it more than anyone anyways. Oh yeah almost forgot to mention my bag looks like it went through a meat grinder. Thanks Lufthansa baggage handlers your the best ever ! And BTW this para graph speaks for a my stops and transfers"

Cons: "Seats were very uncomfortable"
Cons: "its was very very bad bad bad bad its a shame for them very not good bed bed"
Pros: "Air china different"
Pros: "Service,entertainment, and food. Easy check in"
Cons: "Cabin was too warm. No air vents in new aircraft so difficult to sleep."
Pros: "Food was excellent and the stewards were great"
Cons: "An 8 hour flight!"
Cons: "No boarding advantages as a star alliance silver member."
Cons: "Lost bags"
Cons: "I was not expecting to get on a full 8 hour flight with no meal unless I pay for it. Although the mistake on purchasing a flight without meal may come from my end, this logic of having to pay for a meal is not ideal whatsoever, this should never happen, especially when going on a 8 hour flight, meals should always be included regardless! never heard of this ever in my life of using westjet for 7 years , very disappointed."
Cons: "No inflight meal, no inflight entertainment for 10 hrs onboard."
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "Lack of food for long haul flight. Had to pay to eat. 43 dollars and only able to pay with debit/credit card rather than cash"
Pros: "Crew not attentive unless you were in club class"
Cons: "Didn’t really expect much it was okay"
Pros: "The Crew was great"
Cons: "Let my golf clubs fly at no charge. Seat update at check in at no charge."
Pros: "Quiet and comfortable"
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Charging customers for meals on a transatlantic flight is a terrible way to nickel and dime your customers for the most basic provisions. Not all travellers carry accepted credit cards, including the woman sitting beside me. Because it is so common (formally standardized) for airlines to provide food on longer flights, many travellers assume their WestJet flight will the same and arrive unprepared. I normally love WestJet for their customer service, but these flight attendants talked down to customers with legitimate questions. I am choosing another airline for my next international flight, although reluctantly so - I hope to see some changes from WestJet for a more comfortable flight."
Pros: "I didn't!"
Cons: "Late, late, late! I was a prisoner in my seat."
Pros: "From checking in to my arrival I enjoyed the service. The crew even on ground were helpful at the checking in. The light refreshments were okay. I am impressed. I had no on board entertainment so can’t comment on that."
Cons: "Nothing in my whole experience with WestJet on my trip."
Pros: "Sensible ticket price"
Pros: "Boarding etc was organized and efficient."
Cons: "Did not find the crew helpful or friendly."
Pros: "Enough space for long legs."
Cons: "Need more variety in snacks on the longer trips."
Cons: "Haven’t yet reached our destination, it’s our honeymoon and would have hoped to have got ther by now instead of which we are having to layover in Vancouver until the next flight because of delays on first Leg of journey we missed connecting flight"
Pros: "The crew. Very friendly and helpful"
Cons: "The food. Pizza was bad."
Pros: "The flight attendants were wonderful. The macaroni and cheese was tasty."
Cons: "The plane is so old that you can only use the entertainment system on your phone, which gets tiring to hold up in front of you. Even though I was on a 10 hour flight, meals were not provided."
Pros: "Inexpensive average airline"
Cons: "Pay for everything from food to bags, still better than Ryan air"
Pros: "Despite an ontime boarding, weather (thunderstorms) and air traffic congestion left us stuck on the tarmac for over 3 hours. Kudos to the captain for keeping us informed of every development and for taking the initiative to negotiate a southern flight plan routing that allowed us eventually to depart when other flights were being cancelled due to congestion in Heathrow airspace to the north. West Jet also put together a special team in Toronto to rebook passengers with connecting flights to later flights. This meant they had a new boarding pass ready and waiting for me by the time I got to Toronto, so the disruption was minimized."
Cons: "I had counted on buying my meal on the plane, so had not purchased any beforehand. Unfortunately, we ended up delayed on the tarmac for over 3 hours and they ran out of hot meals before they reached my seat row. I had to make do with crackers, cheese and fruit as my dinner. Lesson learned: always reserve my meal (or buy one) before boarding my flight - you never know what kind of delays will occur. To be fair, the crew did offer me a free glass of wine to go with it, which was a nice touch."
Cons: "Unable to hear updates from the crew. Sounded garbled"
Pros: "I lol ke the crew !!"
Pros: "Crew, as usual, were the best thing about this trip"

Cons: "Man these flights are boring"
Cons: "Food charges + hours to wait for a hot drink (tea)"
Pros: "The economy class seats were surprisingly comfortable."
Cons: "It's a personal taste thing, but I don't like flights where it is necessary to separately purchase all the normal things that other airlines provide on international flights (blankets, wine, food, etc). I'm sure others appreciate that level of economy, however."
Pros: "Plane was clean"
Cons: "Waitjet did not perform preventative maintenance and had to change a tire at Gatwick delaying flight by 2 hours with terrible/late/inaccurate information about when flight would resume = FAIL Result was overnite in Toronto. Lets see how the 6:45 (3446) goes ?"
Cons: "It wasnt possible to connect to entertainment system or wifi even though I had paid for wifi"
Pros: "The price"
Cons: "Delays, poorly managed. Ridiculous solutions. A flight that last about 7:30 hours. Turned 36 hours. Bad experience."
Pros: "It was a smaller aircraft and the staff were friendly"
Cons: "was right at the back of the plane and could not hear the announcements clearly."
Cons: "ONE WAY TICKET Vancouver TO Tel Aviv was about $560 c.d -all- included. Went well 3 flights well. Ticket back from Tell Aviv took 4 flights , around $900cd . had to pick-up the suitcase each airport.., and pay for the suit case separately.."
Pros: "Friendly staff."
Cons: "Delays. Canadian debit card not accepted on flights even though an American debit card was."

Cons: "Refreshment should have more choices"
Pros: "Glad I could rent a tablet"
Cons: "Flight was delayed"
Cons: "That the fare advertised didn’t include a seat or a suitcase. Very unfair comparison."
Cons: "I don’t understand how Westjet can get away with 1. Not providing food on a flight of this length, 2. Charging for the entertainment system which has basically no content"
Pros: "Very efficient boarding process and friendly crew members."
Cons: "Make sure to pre-order a meal up to 48 hours in advance, and to download the Westjet app to get access to free movies/TV"
Pros: "The crew was very nice"
Cons: "The flight was 2 hours late and we missed our connection. NOT happy."
Pros: "Decent selection of movies."
Cons: "No meal included in 7hrs oversea trip. They had 3 services - two snacks and one coffee only.othereise, food was for purchase only. No checked luggage included."
Pros: "No Comments."
Cons: "The Female Stewardesses either conveniently did not see me sitting in the middle row seats, or perhaps had other alternative means. I felt totally and absolutely ignored, particularly when Meals and Beverages were being served."
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "Terrible food options. Sandwiches and croissants vastly overpriced: $8 for a croissant ($1) with a slice of cheese (25cents) and ham (50 cents) is ridiculous. Flight delayed on the ground for 1 1/2 hours."
Pros: "More leg space than I was used to and pretty spacious bathrooms (I'm 6'5")"
Cons: "The purchased Wi-Fi went down immediately and didn't come back up until 8 hours into the 10 hour flight."
Pros: "Great crew"
Cons: "Entertainment system was playing up"
Pros: "The crew and their attitude"
Cons: "The planes are worn out with the result that they often have mechanical problems. When the new promised planes arrive this will be a great service. The saving grace of the current service really is the personnel, unlike US carriers if they can help they will."
Cons: "The toilets were very dirty"
Pros: "The return flight was acceptable. seats were comfortable. Would recommend on spending the extra $$ on get extra legroom seats."
Cons: "Flying out on December 24, the airline kept us at the airport for 6 (including 2 hours on the plane) hours before cancelling the flight because they could not get water pressure to the washrooms. We were supposed to leave for London (LHR) at 8:35pm and were notified of the cancellation at approx 2am on December 25. The only other flight that would be available would be on December 25 at the same time the 24th flight was supposed to leave. The service desk was not taking any requests for finding or re-booking flights, we were supposed to call their support number at 7am on the following day. We were offered cab fare accommodation from and back to the airport. They offered hotel stay which I passed on. They provided $60 of airport food that could only be used at certain restaurants, not compatible to purchase chips or drinks (non-alcoholic) from other stores. The coupons as compared to Air Canada, which are valid for a year were only valid for 24 hours. In the end the only "monetary" compensation I got from WestJet was 250 westjet dollars that expire in 12 months."
Cons: "My flight was delayed for 23 hours. It was scheduled to leave at 8:30pm on December 24th. I spent Christmas Day in the airport and in a hotel. Consequently I have no desire to fly with WestJet again."
