Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
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."
Cons: "There was a medical issue and Virgin Atlantic refused to accept the ticket code - for any price - toward a new ticket. I paid for a new ticket and took another airline."
Pros: "Crew was attentive."
Cons: "Tiny, uncomfortable seats with warn cushions."
Cons: "My tv screen could not show the movies"
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."
Cons: "Arrived 1:10 min begore departure. Customer service reps quoted me with No Show. When asked they have no courtesy to answer. Both the rep over the phone and the rep at the airport were horrible. Did I say I was traveling business class? You could imagine the economy"
Pros: "Legroom, lovely staff and all round good flight"
Pros: "Staff were excellent and very friendly, service was great, and the entertainment on board was very good."
Cons: "We were waiting in our seats for about an hour before take off due to a need to de-ice the plane due to snowy weather. I think everyone would have been more comfortable in the waiting area while this happened, or at least given the option to do so."
Cons: "I had to run for almost 2 miles every time I had to change the flight. On the way to India they lost my one bag, and on the way back to US they lost my both begs."
Pros: "The personal care and attention."
Cons: "Old movies and few entertainment choices"
Cons: "We haven’t possiblyty to check in online. Crew smell was terrible, ladies used some perfume, some people was allergic to it"
Pros: "Great Service. Truly enjoyed Economy plus!"
Cons: "We were told over the phone that we could bring our kayaks with us to Africa but the airport staff denied not only our kayaks, but also our paddles which were in a standard ski bag. Their excuse was that both the kayaks and paddle bags were 2 inches too long. .. TWO INCHES!!!!!! We had record of the person we talked to and the time and date, but none of that seemed to matter. It caused A HUGE INCONVENIENCE for us since we are in Zambia for 6 weeks without our gear to paddle one of the most challenging rivers in the world... the Zambezi. Now we are constantly trying to acquire the proper equipment with very little success. We run a nonprofit called the Montana Kayak Academy which provides free whitewater instruction to youth between 8 &18 yrs old and we will be sure to tell everyone we know to NOT TRAVEL WITH EITHER VIRGIN ATLANTIC OR BRITISH AIRWAYS.... EVER!!! VERY DISAPPOINTED! !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"
Cons: "Seats need more padding"
Pros: "Seat Legroom Comfort Food Service Crew ... amazing!!!"
Cons: "the seats are not as comfortable as those on new planes"
Pros: "The Virgin Atlantic Club was nice. The special security line was a bonus."
Cons: "Selection of onboard movies not very good. The crew was not so friendly. Menu could be more varied. The A340 configuration is not so good for Business class. Staring at other people across the aisle is not so nice."
Pros: "Every single aspect of this international flight was outstanding from check-in, customer service, the equipment, the meals, in-flight entertainment, etc. There is nothing I could suggest to improve this wonderful experience. Highly recommended!"
Cons: "I found the seats on this Virgin Atlantic A340 flight from LHR (London Heathrow) to LAX (Los Angeles), an eleven hour flight, to be unacceptable. The seats were very crowded. I am six feet tall, and was very uncomfortable all during the flight. I could not sit with my knees together. I had to spread my knees to sit comfortably. Holding that position for eleven hours was very uncomfortable. Anyone taller than me would have even more trouble. Also, every seat has a very large box underneath, I presume for the audio/video system. This is a terrible location. There is very little room to stow anything. But much worse, I couldn't straighten my right leg. All-in-all, I found the seat situation totally unacceptable. I will likely never fly Virgin Atlantic again because of this."
Pros: "Great food/service/options, nice crew, on-time/early"
Cons: "Entertainment system is quite aged, but selections were OK"
Pros: "I've been flying with Virgin Atlantic from the states to London on multiple occasions. It's an excellent airline with respectful and attentive cabin crew, food is delicious with variety of choices, comfort is quite good, In addition, I admire the touching gesture of Virgin Atlantic with their support for children around the world. Top class!"
Cons: "A bit better options with movies and music in the entertainment department."
Pros: "The veg meal - paneer, rice, lentils - was absolutely delicious. In fact, all of the food was great."
Cons: "Slight problem with the movie viewing - the screen kept going blank every minute or two throughout, and had to be touched to restart. Only on the films, though; the TV episodes were fine."
Cons: "Very uncomfortable seats, food was bad"
Pros: "The crew was very good with the passengers and attentive"
Cons: "The leg space is very tight, it was very hard to sit specially for longer flights it's not that comfortable"
Pros: "the food was decent"
Cons: "the crew was rude, the bathrooms were not clean"
Pros: "Virgin always provides the best, friendliest, coolest service!"
Cons: "The food is pretty low quality, but I understand the logistics constraints of feeding many people in a small space without kitchen facilities! Also the wine choices are superior to other airlines and I look forward to that. I normally plan ahead and bring my own meals whenever traveling by air."
Pros: "free wine, good food, and friendly cabin crew? what more could you want? oh, a good variety of entertainment. I watched two documentaries and "The Lobster" a great choice, never would have seen it otherwise."
Cons: "The seat cushions are really hard and not very comfortable to sit on for a long flight. If you could get a higher density foam that would be great. my bum was a bit sore/uncomfortable."
Pros: "Great service, comfortable and punctual"
Cons: "45 minute delay on runway after landing was very very frustrating."
Pros: "The staff was nice. Boarding was quick and easy. Flight left on time and arrived early. Although the entertainment system had many options, going through lists and playing games required a lot of tapping, and in some cases pushing to make the system work. I felt like I had a woodpecker sitting behind me pushing on my head non-stop for over two hours. I was starting to go insane! Besides, it was so loud near the back of the plane that I couldn't hear anything through my cheap headphones."
Cons: "We could not eat any of the food. My son, my husband and I do not eat and/or are allergic to gluten, dairy, corn, soy and other food additives - as I mentioned above. Please have an option of food not swimming in sauces or cheeses. Plain organic chicken breast with steamed rice pilaf and steamed carrots would be nice. Maybe some steamed red potatoes and a piece of steak. An organic green apple for dessert. Forget the gluten, dairy, sugar or sauces that ruin a perfectly good ham or chicken and lettuce, tomato wrap! Or a salad swimming in dressing. We need to eat protein, not gluten for breakfast. Why not a hard boiled head!"
Pros: "Staff were friendly and flight was clean. Lots of movies to watch."
Cons: "The seats gets smaller each year. For a seven hour flight, the seats are very uncomfortable, no space to move. The flight with the hand held remote control TV had poor visual quality. It was hard to watch movies with dark background."
Pros: "More leg room space in the economy space"
Cons: "I'm over 6 feet tall so the seat in the economy class I felt really uncomfortable."
Pros: "Friendly service. Safe, on time flight."
Cons: "Chicken lunch was just so-so."
Cons: "The food I had food poisoning"
Pros: "Everything was great though navigating through the inflight entertainment could have been easier..."
Pros: "Seems like they are always bringing you something. Very friendly. Great entertainment to choose from. Plenty of leg room even for a tall person like myself (at least compared to other airlines)."
Pros: "Flight D001 (Delta / Virgin, LHR to JFK) Staff were terrific. The food was the best I've had so far (and I fly a lot!) The choice of entertainment was varied and excellent. Flight was smooth and captain was very communicative."
Cons: "Chair kept snapping back to position from recline (33E). Man behind me kept banging on the screen behind my head Inspite of announcement not to do do from cabin crew. If they could catch ppl doing that and say something that would be great :-) (although I realize if course the this isn't their fault.)"
Pros: "Good service, comfortable seats and quick flight, great combination for a long trip."
Pros: "Food, crew, entertainment, captain announcements."
Pros: "Excellent in all aspects, to and fro."
Pros: "I am a disables person who can not walk more that a few feet without assistance. I was helped all the way to my seat which was great. The Terminal employees were very helpful"
Cons: "The food was burn on to the bottom of the dishes and to hard to eat. The crew spent most of the time in the galley and only came out to serve the food."
Pros: "New plane. Much more legroom. Entertainment screen much nicer"
Cons: "Entertainment screen did not adjust, could not view properly with"
Pros: "Enjoyed the entertainment options. Always good."
Pros: "Professional crew, on time departure and arrival"
Cons: "Very cramped seating, almost uncomfortable"
Pros: "I loved flying with Virgin. Everything was fast and efficient. All the staff were warm and friendly. The plane was spacious without the feeling of claustrophobia which can sometimes be experienced."
Cons: "7.30hrs next to a kicking, screaming and throwing everything 2 year old child. Virgin let themselves down when there were multiple opportunities to provide alternative seating arrangements."
Pros: "This was my first experience with Virgin Atlantic, and I was highly satisfied. I really appreciated the large selection of movies and TV shows, and the option of vegetarian and vegan meals (nothing fancy, but solid for airline food)."
Pros: "The flight departed on time arrived half hour early. No baggage problems. Nice crew. Good food."
Cons: "It was a bit older aircraft. Seats were a bit hard not as comfortable. Entertainment options could be better with more movie titles."
Pros: "Pressurising on new plane seemed to make long trips less tiring."
Cons: "New plane's weird electronic window shades had us in darkness with sun up high! Unsettling. Couldn't operate the switch under the window. Very noisy systems such as flaps, wheels, etc. Screaming, grinding banging noises. Address system unhearable & useless."
Pros: "Due to COVID 19 we got a 737-800 on a route that usually boasts nothing better than a 717 so everything about this flight was superior to normal runs."
Cons: "I wish DL could find a way to better manage food and drinks during the COVID 19 restrictive era."
Pros: "The crew was amazing and the flight was fast and smooth. Seating was great"
Cons: "Nothing needs to be corrected"
Pros: "Missed connecting flight because of late plane."
Cons: "To be in the plane instead of being placed on standby."
Cons: "More communication on the flight delay"
Pros: "Crew did the best they could keeping us aware of the extensive delays flying in to LaGuardia. The captain made himself available to answer questions from passengers at the gate early on and I thought that was a great gesture."
Cons: "Nothing could have been better. Any issues with the flight were delays beyond the crew's control."
Pros: "Crew is amazing, seats are pretty good."
Cons: "On time, baggages checked in and were made available on time."
Cons: "Our flight was late, and we had a sick passenger and had to wait until they leave however many of us had connecting flights in which we missed. The flight attendant should have allowed the one's connecting a flight leave first."
Pros: "Use my built up miles for the SEA-ANC leg of our trip, as to physically price it out as one ticket usually increases the fare by 300-600 u$d depending upon time of year. As it was the tail end of an already long journey (OKA-ICN/ICN-SEA), booked the First Class Cabin. Every mile was worth it."
Pros: "Amazing crew and seating. Worth the upgrade to premium."
Cons: "Food really bad on both segments."
Pros: "The flight crew was as positive as possible."
Cons: "It was very late"
Pros: "The entertainment was nice."
Cons: "If the screen wasn’t behind the seat. I could hear the tapping of the person behind me."
Cons: "Notify the delay quickly"
Cons: "No WiFi kg was an old plane and the stranger next to me was 6’4” so pretty uncomfortable"
Pros: "With all the competition among airlines and the cutbacks we suffer as customers Delta manages to make you feel like you matter still. Timely boarding, actual help with finding seats making boarding efficient (not just hurrying you along), updates from the cockpit that you could hear and understand, multiple choices in snacks-one even a healthy option, staff that was friendly and interested in making it a good experience not one that seemed bothered they had to work."
Pros: "Food was good, boarding was fast and efficient"
Cons: "Smallest seats I’ve seen in a while. Very uncomfortable. Still haven’t announced baggage carousel but that’s jfk for ya. WiFi didn’t work on flight either."
Pros: "Quick flight"
Cons: "Delayed and then arrived at airport and sat on tarmac for too long waiting for clearance to go to gate"
Cons: "Delta changed our seat assignment and our seats sucked"
Pros: "delayed flight by Skywest or West jet - Delta subsidiary / affiliate. it’s the 2nd flight in a row that’s delayed. but much better than American Airlines."
Cons: "Flight delays. At least flight was not cancelled. Boarding staff & flight crew were awesome and entertainment was superb."
Pros: "Staff tried to be helpful"
Cons: "Silly series of events. Maintenance problem before flight left previous city, got to us and we boarded only to deplane for more repairs. Ended up with another plane, five hours later. For a 44 min flight. Would’ve been easier to drive!"
Pros: "Although our flight was fully booked. The crewmembers on this flight was professional, friendly and efficient. We boarded quickly and took off on time. We even arrived ahead of schedule. Each passenger was given free headphones and complimentary beverages and snacks. I love Delta they are a cut above the rest. They are constantly striving to put the customers needs and wants top priority"
Cons: "Not enough legroom"
Pros: "No waits, front desk personnel were helpful about baggage accommodations. Clear communications."
Cons: "No issues."
Pros: "very friendly crew"
Pros: "Everything was perfect, everyone was nice, there was lots of room, the crew offered snacks frequently, WiFi had a great connection and there was a wide array of entertainment."
Cons: "There was a problem with the plane that they told us after we boarded that delayed our plane an hour. But hey, better safe than sorry!"
Pros: "Very good flight. Nice staff that seemed to enjoy their jobs. Great smiles and personable. Modern and clean plane with WiFi and charging outlets"
Cons: "There was a mechanical issue that delayed departure. Fortunately I did not have a connection to make. The crew made sure to communicate with everyone onboard frequently so we were aware of the situation and progress. They handled everything well which was reassuring for my peace of mind."
Pros: "Sky Lounge at SFO and onboard entertainment"
Pros: "Boarding and staff were excellent. Plane was clean."
Cons: "I was unhappy with the seating arrangements. I could not upgrade my seats because I booked through a third party. If I’m willing to pay for my upgrade then it should be allowable. I don’t like seating in the rear of the plane!"
Pros: "Alaska Airlines is way overpriced and way less comfortable than Delta. I’m a Delta loyalist forever now!"
Cons: "Slow Wifi."
Cons: "We purchased food. Bread was stale, and fell apart in your hands."
Cons: "Rude staff"
Pros: "I LOVED the free movies. Great idea and newer movies. Finally was able to watch a movie I'd wanted to see for a long time."
Cons: "Flight was packed which always makes for a more cramped ride. Again, boarding. Flight boarded late and just seems boarding from the back to front would be faster."
Pros: "The short flight was fine. Crew was friendly."
Cons: "Because we arrived to LAX from SAN so late we had to run to the next gate and barely made the flight. The overhead bins were already very full so we had to stuff our stuff at our feet. Since we arrived so late it would have been better if they had allowed those with a tight connection to disembark first."
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: "The staff and crew were great help all along the route and the planes were well kept and clean."
Cons: "One of the legs did not have the free wifi available, but they mentioned that before takeoff and were very apologetic that it had not been added to that plane yet."
Cons: "When they called for passengers with infants and those who needed more time they also called for anyone who wanted to check their luggage. So of course people cut right in front of me as I was about to scan my pass. What is the point of asking us to come up if they are just going to let people jump in front of me."
Cons: "The air conditioning was broken so it was sweltering the whole time. Staff didn't even mention it or apologize. No leg room. Bags took longer than 20 minutes to arrive but we didn't make a fuss since we were just glad to be finished with Delta. I'll never fly Delta again even if it costs me more."
Cons: "Very dated plane. First class seat was worn, crooked, and uncomfortable. No entertainment offered. Almonds or biscuit cookies were the only food options."
Cons: "Didn't stick to zones when boarding customers. Gate agent basically let anyone board during pre boarding and priority boarding, why even offer it if you aren't going to make people adhere to the rules."
Pros: "Friendly staff/ comfortable seating."
Pros: "The crew was very friendly and ensured you had everything to your comfort . Great selection on movies . The food and wine selection was divine. Great service"
Pros: "Return trip was 30 min ahead of schedule"
Cons: "We had a 2 hour delay getting to NYC"
Pros: "Left reasonably on time, arrived a bit early, able to find overhead storage for my roll-on, even boarding in Zone 3"
Cons: "Very tightly packed; minimal comfort for the flight."
Pros: "Delta always seems to have the most legroom between the seats - Even more than our transatlantic flight! The crew is always friendly and helpful, and nearly all our flights on Delta were on time or early."
Pros: "2 seats by windows, rather than 3, and the roominess plus ease of using the media tv screen and options. the beverage options and food options were plentiful as well as good quality."
Pros: "We had originally booked seats that were not together but we're able to change them at the gate. We sat in the last row of the 777 which only had 2 seats on either side of the plane rather than the standard 3. The seats still reclined tho not as much as the other rows. Food was free and excellent- so was the entertainment (I watched 4 movies on the 14 hour flight). Crew was great. Alcoholic beverages were also free but we don't drink so it didn't matter."
Cons: "The flight from phx to lax was ok but it was a small plane (CRJ700) and we're big people. No amenities whatsoever except for soft drinks, juices and peanuts. Flight was on time and made the connection with time to spare."
Pros: "Low price."
Cons: "Delta provided no information as to why the flight was late. No earlier flights on other airlines were offered."
Pros: "Seated my husband I together (finally) at very back of plane next to window (not our preference)."
Cons: "My husband and I although booked together were seated in middle seats 9 rows apart. We atrempted to change our seats online at KLM (not possible), online at Delta (didn't recognize our KLM purchased flight), in person at KLM counter in SVG, in person with THE Delta rep at the check-in gate in AMS...no one could help us due to different systems used for seating for each company that the other one doesn't have access to. Flights booked by one company and operated by another seem common enough that this system needs to be improved. - Silver KLM travelers Also WAY too hot on plane."
Pros: "The crew on this flight were excellent. Friendly and professional. Attentive and patient."
Cons: "The food needs major improvement. What has happened to Lufthansa??? Other people I know on different flights also have big complaints about the food."
Cons: "Improve quality of on board announcements."
Cons: "Lufthansa changed my flight last minute but was sending me updates for the old booking- it made no sense!!! Never again!"
Pros: "Free entertainment, excellent food"
Cons: "Cabin was too warm; unable to adjust air at seats"
Pros: "We landed safely. I like the A380."
Cons: "One crew member in particular looked very frazzled and was rushing to do everything. They also took away my suitcase which would have very easily fit in the overhead."
Pros: "Flight attendants were good."
Cons: "Didn’t have another sandwich on this flight because the first one on previous flight was very dry and were the same options."
Pros: "The crew was great. The sandwich was tasty. And, I loved the leg room!"
Pros: "Seating was good"
Cons: "Got a seat in the middle - was pretty annoyed with this."
Pros: "On time, onwith excellent care by staff"
Cons: "The long walk on the airport for connecting flight"
Pros: "Clean new Airbus 380. Nice crew"
Pros: "The food was excellent."
Cons: "Sitting in the middle. It is always uncomfortable due to the fact that you need to ask the person sitting next to you to get up because you need to use the restroom. Aside from that my overall experience was excellent. The food, entertainment, staff all helpful and friendly."
Pros: "Timeliness of fligyts"
Pros: "Very pleasant crew."
Cons: "No complaints"
Pros: "Arrived safely."
Cons: "Late departure then drove around the airport for about 30 minutes after arrival before rushing to passport control and connecting flight."
Pros: "Friendly cabin crew."
Cons: "The flight was delayed and there was no one at the counter to get any information for several hours. When there finally was someone there they were not very helpful."
Pros: "The aircraft was great. A bit wobbly on take off and landing, but overall spacious and comfortable seating. The seats had many position options which was amazing. Meal service tableware was clean and pleasant to use. Food was also great. Also a very wide selection of entertainment options! Also, good flying from the pilot’s crew. Flight was on time."
Cons: "The servicing crew in the business cabin was inexperienced and unrefined. The flight attendants seemed to just want to “get it over with” with questions like “are you done?” The attendants wanted to take our drink order as soon as we got in without giving us a chance to settle into our seats and kept hovering over us until I had to ask her to give us a couple of minutes. The airline did not stock enough snack and ran out mid flight. We had to wait for the next meal service which was not fun. I ended up getting a sweet drink just to get by. Internet, which was paid, was so slow that I got tired of watching it trying to load the pages and gave up. Eventually, the connection completely stalled even though I still had over an hour remaining of the 4 hour package. I used maybe an hour of the total purchase. Total waste because I couldn’t get any work done. Overall, I did not think this was an experience worth a business class ticket."
Pros: "There's nothing much that's positive to say about this leg of our journey."
Cons: "Not only was the flight delayed, but there was confusion at the gate for boarding of even first or business class. We had to carry our luggage down 2 flights of stairs to get on a bus, which then transported us a very long ways away on the tarmac. Then it was an older model plane and the engine noise, even though we were up front, was extremely loud! It was somewhat worrisome. The food was terrible and by the end of the 90 minute flight our rears were sore from the poor seat cushioning. Not a good experience at all. All of this was after a terrible experience and delay just trying to connect flights within the German airport and the security delays that probably would have made us lose our flight if it wasn't delayed. There needs to be a better system if you are not staying in Germany but just connecting flights from the same airline!"
Cons: "I was waiting over 1 hr for my l"
Pros: "I am 6’3”. But I am also cheap. So I like being able to fit in an economy seat with more room than other airlines. Believe me, an inch or two makes all the difference."
Cons: "The flight was delayed 6h. I got to the destination late And I was late for work Went to work restless"
Pros: "Every thing"
Pros: "Left in time, arrived too early"
Cons: "Boarding took a lot of time"
Cons: "Me starting to get sick!"
Pros: "The crew was very friendly and went above and beyond."
Cons: "The boarding process is unorganized as passengers do not board by aisles...just pushing and shoving"
Cons: "Personnel and food was great."
Cons: "Unorganized boarding. Back of the plane seats should be boarding first, after babies and old people. I was stopped by the people in front of the plane putting away their luggage and standing in the aisle."
Pros: "We left an hour late. Pilot made up most of the time in the air."
Cons: "United app didn't work. No entertainment. Seats so close, you couldn't read because distance too short. Could have heated the breakfast sandwich. Just threw it out cold and late."
Cons: "Delayed flights for a day"
Pros: "The flight was on time. Helpful, friendly crew. Will use Condor services again."
Pros: "Service was great, pilots were amazing no decompression pain in my ears."
Cons: "The flight was delayed in Warsaw for 1:30 hours"
Pros: "The crew was wonderful, as is always true with both Lufthansa and Austrian Airlines (both of which I traveled on as part of this trip)."
Cons: "I would highly recommend both Lufthansa and Austrian adjust their entertainment systems. They seem not to weight much the top films with, say 75% Rotten Tomatoes reviews or higher. Even if there were fewer options for cost reasons, I would think they'd still have more watcher enjoyment. Rather than pad the list with the likes of Boss Baby or Going out in Style or even a mediocre 60% offering in the Fast and Furious franchise. Wonderful crew, though, can't say enough about how polite and attentive they are."
Cons: "The airplane was very late, so I didn't make it to my connecting flight."
Pros: "Very organized"
Cons: "Seat space is limited and if one is traveling from us to India both the planes have same entertainment channels"
Cons: "This flight was late and because of that we missed connecting flight to NY!"
Cons: "Do not choose this Airline by any means."
Pros: "Excellent service and efficiency."
Pros: "Pleasant staff, drinks including digestive, toilets situated downstairs"
Cons: "Boarding could have been done in sections, not all at once. Entertainment needs to be refreshed more often"
Cons: "Delayed flight. Offered free direct tv to everyone but then came back on and said the "button" to select free tv wasn't working so never mind"
Cons: "Lufthansa cancelled my flight on November 23rd a few hours prior to departures because their pilots went on a strike. When I called and asked if they would rebook me the lady on the phone said that she could rebook for a trip that had two layovers from 2pm(Prague time) to 8:30pm(NYC time) for the 24th of November (thanksgiving). When I asked her if there was anything else she said that was the soonest flight she could find. When I checked my self I found and booked a flight for the 23rd. When I called back they refused to give me a refund."
Pros: "Smooth flight. Prompt departure and easy boarding."
Cons: "Limited dinner choices. Goulash served on flight home to Boston was inedible."
Pros: "Everything was great. Thank you"
Pros: "This flight was slightly delayed, but the delay was small and didn't affect my connecting flight."
Cons: "the boarding wasn't "ordered" like last rows boarded first to avoid trying to get by people in earlier rows - that slows down boarding."
Pros: "The crew and in flight experience were excellent."
Cons: "Terminal procedures, particularly a tarmac delay and understaffed customs and security personnel, jeopardized my London Heathrow connection in spite of the 80 minute layover. Itineraries with less than a two-hour connection should be discontinued as a fraudulent misrepresentation of the passenger's likely success. I will never fly through Heathrow again."
Pros: "The crew was incredibly pleasant and helpful"
Cons: "No entertainment"
Cons: "Ground crew in Warsaw made me feel unwelcome. The harassment and discrimination I have experienced was unacceptable."
Cons: "When a bought my ticket, I had asked in the office about WiFi. They told me that you have WiFi on the plane. I had checked this information on KLM.com and saw the same, that you have WiFi. This was the reason, why a chose KLM! Then I tried to connected on board but I couldn’t! WiFi was not available. Crew told me that they don’t know anything about it! I was disappointed and angry."
Cons: "Transavia does not serve anything complementary, not even water. A flight between two countries that is five hours long must be better than this. I was not aware of Transavia doing that before I booked. I will never fly with them again"
Cons: "The plane is so old..,"
Cons: "Flight got delayed 30 minutes"
Pros: "No delay and nice staff"
Pros: "The entertainment was amazing"
Cons: "The seats were a bit hard"
Pros: "Crew was very engaging and service was good."
Cons: "My seat was horrible. Right at the door, crammed, and no place to store my carry-on luggage."
Cons: "The air conditioners fan was bad and they had to fix it in London which took over 40 minutes off travel time...we arrived much later than expected in Lagos"
Pros: "The crew was attentive and the seat at economy comfort was comfortable at the “ok” level. It needs much mor3 to be super comfortable. The plug for the headphones was a mess! It was NOT possible to watch a movie and hear the sound too! I gave up! Not a great offering for the extra dollars..."
Cons: "So many things! Starting with the way assistance in the airport is offered to travellers with mobility issues! This is an important issue that needs to be revisited and changes for better service to be made!"
Pros: "The crew are amazing! Attentive and friendly."
Cons: "The seats could have been bigger."
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: "It was all fine"
Cons: "Really was unsure of why I had to purchase a ticket as I was able to pick my own on the way to Billund"
Pros: "The earphones for out two seats only worked intermittently, but the Purser, Lee-Ann handled it professionally and pleasantly. That was the only disappointment in an otherwise pleasant flight"
Cons: "The earphones could have worked!"
Pros: "The crew was very nice"
Cons: "Uncomfortable seat but it’s only a 1 hour flight so not a big deal."
Cons: "Inflight was better than I expected. But needs upgrading air crafts."
Pros: "All good"
Pros: "Economy comfort was very nice, food decent, plenty of toilets to avoid overcrowding, and good entertainment selection."
Pros: "Last year I flew Lufthansa which was my worst experience flying ever. I thought the new standard was so low I would never fly to Europe again. I had heard KLM was good but I felt this was as good as could be expected actually much better. The food was even good."
Cons: "I would have to dream something up."
Pros: "Very attentive crew. Attended to needs immediately. Took a lot of time with each person when someone had something to say."
Cons: "The seat I had with no seats in front of me was very small. Much smaller than the other economy seats because the tray table and video screen were in the armrests. Paid extra for the legroom by ended up losing it side to side. Really had to squeeze into the seat."
Pros: "The service"
Cons: "The seats"
Cons: "Our lougage did not arrive"
Cons: "Nothing special"
Pros: "The staff tried to help me when it was evident we would not arrive on time"
Cons: "The connecting flight is too short of a time. We were late out of LAX and I missed my connection and had to sit in airport for 5 hours. Missed my grandson’s third birthday party. Just made me sad as Travelled from far to try to make it."
Cons: "KLM staff in the Prague airport were some of the rudest humans I have ever met. So incredibly uncaring and outright mean."
Cons: "Flight was cancelled."
Cons: "The movie selection did not seem extremely varied."
Pros: "Wifi on Board"
Pros: "Left ontime and service was excellent."
Pros: "I got some rest"
Cons: "unable to charge my phone or watch movies"
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: "crew were absolutely delightful, full of smiles and doing everything to make you comfortable. seats were fine enough and got some work done and a bit of sleep. first lunch was fresh and tasty, but the second, a burger, was edible, but not much more."
Cons: "tv screens are dated so movies are not as crisp as you find in newer planes. you need a 2 prong audio adapter to use your own headphones."
Pros: "The staff are the best European crews I have encountered. Naturally friendly, professional and fit looking. Nothing is too much trouble"
Cons: "Amesterdam airport employee was really rude"
Pros: "Airlines issue"
Cons: "Profiling certain customers"
Cons: "una valija se perdió. Eso desató el descontrol que tiene KLM para seguir el equipaje. No hay como hacer tracking. No hay un teléfono a donde hablar, la web está desactualizada y con información equivocada. Direccionan a usar canales de twitter y facebook que no responden. Primer experiencia en KLM y no pienso nunca más usar esta aerolínea. Llevar el equipaje o resolver un problema sobre valijas es de lo más básico de una aerolínea y no lo hacen."
Pros: "had problems checking in , in that I was charged for a suitcase! I have since checked my paper work and found thad that I had paid for a case! I will follow this up when I return to the UK"
Pros: "Thankful for coffee being served without charge. Not all airlines do that."
Pros: "Comfort economy well worth the extra."
Cons: "suitcase didn't turn up, although connection was quite tight"
Pros: "The crew service is impeccable. Ground services very friendly and professional."
Cons: "The seats are very uncomfortable. The individual screens are simply outdated like you basically will damage your eyes looking at them. No chargers for phones."
Pros: "The pilot kept us informed periodically during our journey. I liked that we could choose our seating online. The entertainment was good."
Cons: "The plane was dirty, all seats did not have pillows and blankets. Seating was not very comfortable, particularly as there was a box attached to one of the legs of the seat in front of me, making it necessary to move my legs to an uncomfortable angle."
Cons: "Flight delayed by one hour which meant I missed by train at Southampton by 10 minutes and subsequent bus connect home. Next bus would have been 2 hours later so 45 minute walk home from train station. Didn't bother with food offering, put off by that supplied from Hannover to Schiphol."
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: "Friendliest economy class service I've ever encountered."
Cons: "Did not get the luggage from connecting flight from Amsterdan to Basel"
Pros: "Nice, turbulent-free flight. Food was good, service with a smile. Leg space was OK because Boeing 777s are usually better at this."
Cons: "Flight left over an hour late because of a sensor glitch. It is concerning when a technical glitch happens. But, the flight was smooth."
Pros: "Crew was excellent"
Cons: "Economy was very tight! Seats were uncomfortable"
Pros: "Good food, good entertainment system, comfortable seating."
Cons: "Only one toilet working in business class. A crew member told me that it was a decision to fly with only one toilet to ensure no delay. There was a disgusting stench of sewerage for the complete flight from Amsterdam to Johannesburg. This was in all likelihood due to the broken toilet on the left side."
Pros: "There was no flight! So it's one thing that you have to cancel the flight because of fog; but rebooking us the next day on a flight through New York that doesn't exist, was way below the standard of care I would expect from any airline. Apparently, the NY to LAX flight that KLM booked us on, was only one leg of the flight to Sydney Australia; and according to some airline agreement, only Australian nationals are permitted to take that flight! Running around at JFK from terminal four, to terminal seven, to terminal eight, back to terminal four, to get a flight out, was a bit much considering how tired we were – not to mention hungry, since KLM neglected to provide the kosher meals we had requested with plenty of time – BOTH going to and returning from Europe."
Pros: "The crew was nice"
Cons: "We were boarding later than expected Which caused some stress with connection flight"
Pros: "This is a great way to travel from Helsinki to Tampere and avoid the railway and train changing."
Cons: "The plane is not comfortable, but the flight is very short. It balances out."
Cons: "The time. Ity was very delayed. Almost lost my last connection."
Pros: "The blueberry juice was good!!"
Cons: "Sitting by the bathrooms. There weren’t even pretzels."
Pros: "Great service on biz class, comfortable seat, quiet airplane (A350)."
Cons: "I liked it all."
Pros: "Beautiful new modern aircraft & plenty of spare seats on the flight. Paid for Economy comfort & it was worth it."
Cons: "Did not like that you had to pay for drinks & snacks. For someone of Finnair’s standing, you would think they would include it."
Pros: "In cabin crew was good. Good service"
Cons: "Crew at gate wasn't really friendly. Made some of us check in our carry ons stating that the flight was full, but I found on the plane that there was tons of overhead space after everyone had boarded. I had a connecting flight to tallin for a conference and was nervous that my checked in carry-on wouldn't make it."
Pros: "Nice crew"
Cons: "old plane, not clean, flight delayed not airlines fault"
Pros: "Made up some of lost time from delayed departure"
Cons: "Seats cramped"
Pros: "I did get to move away from complaining passengers but "lost my coat" in the process. People are awful and obnoxious"
Cons: "Who doesn't turn off the plane lights at night inside the cabin? Especially when you're feeling late at night? Didn't post gate until very last minute…LHR..Then it said boarding immediately. Nowhere to get water. Hurriedly Boarded plane to find out we have the sit there an hour. Girl next to me was so childish Loud mouth complaining because she couldn't sit next to her bf."
Pros: "Individual seat video screens / media selection for such a long flight. Food also good, with good beer / wine selection"
Cons: "Bag never was placed on this flight, for whatever reason. BA had almost 4 hours to ensure its inclusion--but without success. It was delivered within 48 hours to my home, though, with all contents in tact."
Cons: "I am 6'1" tall. Seats were designed for 5'1" persons."
Cons: "We were unable to find a row of seats to more comfortably facilitate traveling with a baby and a toddler as seats that should have had a cot or extra seating didn't have the cot and were sold out for an additional fee before we had the chance to. Discussing this with the staff at check0in and at the gate, made no difference as they had no knowledge of what was available on that particular flight. Every time I fly with American I'm reminded of why I don't like the airline and I will do my best to avoid them moving forward regardless of competitive ticket pricing."
Pros: "The flight was so-so. Cramped seating with mediocre food."
Cons: "The problem I had was the multiple email updates from Kayak with the wrong departure time. Fortunately, I checked with American directly. Even after the flight departed I was getting emails that I still had four hours left. Doesn't make sense."
Pros: "Crew were friendly, helpful and efficient Entertainment was very good, especially on outgoing flight"
Cons: "Broken a/c on one flight, sweating buckets No leg room at all on outgoing 747 Disgusting smelly BO passenger on return flight"
Pros: "Crew staff pleasant although did not particularly take the initiative to help customers."
Cons: "Boarding process at Heathrow was chaotic. Could not hear announcements and the response was a large crowd pushing towards an unclear entrance point. The seats are quite small and recline a minimal amount My biggest complaint is that four of us traveling together could not be seated in close proximity to each other, despite making that request over four months before the flight. Extremely frustrating to deal with check-in process as well--because we booked on Finnair, we could not use online system. This was an aggravation considering we were traveling. And--one of our bags was left behind in London. \"
Pros: "I booked the seats with extra room - really glad I did. The food wasn't bad, the entertainment system worked. I definitely prefer the Virgin Atlantic entertainment system, but I fly AA fairly often and will continue to."
Cons: "The airport check-in was absolutely terrible. We were in line so long that an employee came up to us and said "I can't believe you're still here." Neither could I. We get to the airport at least three hours early because of stuff like this, but the incredibly slow line and unorganized way of handling it ate any of the time I'd looked so forward spending at Heathrow (I love hitting Boots etc)."
Pros: "Wonderful service and care from crew."
Pros: "Boarding was quick and efficient. Flight crew was polite, helpful and friendly. Had adequate leg room in coach, added plus was the flight was not crowded so did not have anyone sitting next to me. Did not feel squashed and claustrophobic as a result. Food was satisfactory."
Cons: "Was inadequately fed on the Houston to London leg. Got nothing but a nightcap. The following morning I received a cold, stale croissant as part of a lunch box for a preschooler, nothing warm, no protein after 8 hrs in flight. I could not check in online."
Pros: "9 month old A380 with dedicated flight crew - everything on time - what more is there to ask for?"
Cons: "Airplane meals tend to be carb-heavy and the food service was no exception. Always a roll or bread but this is normal."
Pros: "Traveled BA and it was lovely, as usual."
Cons: "The flight staff on this particular BA flight was not as accommodating and friendly as I am so accustomed to on BA. Perhaps the flight attendant in charge of our seats was having a bad day. Also, the food on our BA flights to and from NYC was not up to scratch and rather bland and ordinary, compared to their usual. that was a huge disappointment."
Pros: "Great flying a330 lhr to hel. Never been in such a big plane for the short trip. Very comfortable. Great snacks too, friendly service and very smooth overall."
Cons: "We were delayed leaving yet arrived in time so it's not a big deal."
Pros: "It's a direct flight, it runs on time, the staff on the ground and on the flight are professional, courteous, and helpful. If you are lucky enough to have an empty seat next to you, the seating is quite comfortable, with adequate foot and stretching room."
Cons: "For in-flight entertainment, the ceiling-mounted screens along the aisle are hard to see and offer no choices for viewing. The food, as usual, was poor. I ordered vegetarian meals, and on the return trip for both meals was given the same soggy pasta with tomato sauce--no protein (why not add a few chickpeas or white beans?)."
Cons: "Boarding was chaotic. Pre boading not enforced, all passengers boarding at the same."
Pros: "Arrived on time. Smooth flight."
Cons: "Nothing really."
Pros: "British Airway's Entertainment is better than FinnAir. Smooth flight."
Cons: "Nothing really."
Pros: "Great crew. Lots of refreshments."
Pros: "Services, food, smooth landing."
Pros: "The food and entertainment were good."
Cons: "This flight was operated by British Airways. The flight attendants on this flight were very rude and the plane was not as comfortable as the they Finnair plane."
Pros: "I took the bus back and forth from SF to London. Overseas I am now in contemplation of only flying British Airways from now on. The ride is comfortable, enjoyable, entertaining, adequate space, excellent service, food and drinks are the best I have had, and exceptional services and attention. This goes for both flights. I have been recommending Britsh Airways over the last several weeks to pretty much everyone I know. My family and I will be looking to British Airways for overseas flights as a priority."
Cons: "Connecting flight thru Heathrow was too close for comfort. I just reached the gate at the end of boarding. If there had been a glitch at all I would have missed the flight."
Pros: "Food, drink, and movies were great! Gotta love the A380 and British Air"
Pros: "Food was better than flight to London. Boarding went well."
Cons: "Plane left almost an hour late with no explanation given. For huge plane, still cramped unless you pay loads for more room. Upgrade prices outlandish!!!"
Pros: "Boarding was smooth and the flight crew and attendants were friendly and helpful."
Cons: "The seats were so close that we felt like cordwood stacked vertically. There wasn't elbow roon to butter my roll without elbowing the person in the next seat. The food was boring. It was very cold, despite my dressing warmly. It was a relief to board our next flight, which was JetBlue."
Pros: "Great flight, crew was very nice. I would rebook with British airways."
Pros: "British Airways operated this flight and it was a great experience. The seats were cramped, but almost to be expected for an economy service overseas."
Pros: "The crew was friendlier than on the other airlines we took on our trip. The seats were cramped (coming from someone average height) and the middle and window seats have a combined under the seat compartment so you don't feel like you have personal space. I wish the breakfast was more substantial, but other than that it was a wonderful flight and I would definitely take it again!"
Pros: "Great crew-service was prompt"
Cons: "Food was served an hour after we took off and we got a snack 7 hours later!! You'd think that on a 9 hour flight, there would be two full meals. Also, entertainment system was tiny (4" screen) and colors were washed out with brightness/contrast so bad, you couldn't see anything at all. Seats were cramped-I took an Emirates flight from London to Bangalore-what a world of difference!!!! Never flying BA again, that's for sure."
Cons: "This is 2016 and to have planes that don't have in seat screens for entertainment is ridiculous. This was over a 9 hour flight. Won't choose your airline again because of this."
Pros: "This was actually a USAirways flight now rebranded as American. A lot of people had to check baggage. There was no in-seat video entertainment. The crew were surly."
Cons: "No individual air controls for each seat"
Pros: "The flight itself was very good. The food is descent and there are good selection of movies."
Cons: "My bag was left in London during my connection and arrived in Denver the next day. From what I understand once my bag arrived it was handed off to a third party delivery company. I am not sure how to complain to this company, maybe British Airways has a way to do it since they hired them. My bag must have arrived around 3:30pm in Denver. I got a text at 5pm that my bag was being delivered, which is fine so far. I did not hear before 10pm from the delivery guy about an estimated delivery time of my luggage, at that point he said he would show up around midnight. He eventually arrived at 3am. I don't know how the delivery company plans their deliveries but this is rather unacceptable. Unfortunately, this is not the first time this happens to me. Do they really always expect people to stay up until 3am the day after an international flight to get their luggage that was mis-handled by the airline.... I'd rather just drive to the airport myself the next day to get my suitcase myself."
Cons: "The headphone socket didn't work, the screen was tiny, the food was bordering on the inedible, the seating was cramped and uncomfortable, the air was dirty and unhealthy."
Pros: "Short good flight, with no issues. Friendly crew that were very professional."
Cons: "No complaints."
Pros: "Window seat. Nobody sat next to me. Good food. Free entertainment and drinks. Large plane. Plug socket. Usb socket. Free headphones and toothbrush. Enough hand luggage space for everyone's bag."
Cons: "Good was good. However I have an allergy to soy and there were soybeans in the prawn salad with no ingredients list no notification of such. I ate some too and didn't have my epi pen with me. Very scary!"
Pros: "We loved the service and staff. The plane was clean."
Cons: "The video/movie system was old, and the chairs were old."
Pros: "Flight was on time. Staff were very friendly. The whole process was easy."
Pros: "No device charging outlets."
Pros: "Flight was not full Nice clean 777-300 Better food service than in the past ... more snack service With Global Entry, I was off the plane and in a car in less than 20 minutes"
Pros: "Excellent flight."
