Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "fresh baked bread!"
Cons: "fight was delayed almost 4 hours. we were stuck on the plane for over 2 hours before liftoff while technical difficulties were worked out. no compensation offered."

Pros: "Bombardier C Series. Most leg room and comfort of any plane"

Pros: "Amazing crew"

Pros: "Crew was nice"
Cons: "No WiFi on a 12 hour flight, but we could all see the full signal WiFi for the crew, aptly named. LXCrew. Awful to see them using WiFi when we are unable."

Cons: "Avoid spilling coke on the passengers"

Pros: "Superb crew; surprisingly delicious food (better than some first class meals I’ve had in the past)."
Cons: "The seat was remarkably uncomfortable. I fly business or first class when traveling overseas (prefer business class) specifically to be able to rest - this was the most uncomfortable I’ve experienced in the last few years."

Cons: "Temperature was very hot"

Cons: "Missed flight. Misplaced checked bag. Filed complaint with Swiss."

Pros: "Swiss is always excellent"

Cons: "Check in was annoying in Paris as we had to go to ticket counter, and then go to a different counter to pay for luggage. Annoyed in the first place to have to pay for 2 checked bags on international flight, but to have to go into three separate lines in order to do so was pouring salt into a wound."

Pros: "This was a very short flight. They gave you a great little snack and drink. Was a very smooth flight and the crew were very friendly and welcoming."
Cons: "Could not check in online because the system was down."

Pros: "Brand new plane and SUPER comfortable (even in coach!)."

Cons: "I wanted to get some work done on my flight but I couldn't even open my laptop screen more than a few inches."

Cons: "I missed my connection and got to Hong Kong a day late."

Pros: "The. Crew were amazing"
Cons: "Lpst my luggage"

Cons: "Terrible movie selection"

Pros: "The crew was very helpful & friendly"
Cons: "The a/c or fans were on too high"

Pros: "There wasn't much that stood out as likable. The food was pretty good."
Cons: "The plane was too hot. I asked multiple times throughout the flight for the temperature to be reduced, and it was not. I was wearing light jeans and a short sleeve shirt, and I was sweating all flight. Each time I asked throughout the duration of the flight, I was told it take a while for the temperature to decline. It's one thing to be uncomfortably warm on a flight; it's another thing when the flight crew lies to you. Further, I was not the only one to request that the temperature be reduced. This made an 11 hour flight particularly miserable."

Cons: "Our bags were lost in Zurich but the gentleman at the ticket counter was amazing! He even called before we left the airport saying that he had found our bag in Zurich"

Pros: "Great services and the staffs. Very comfortable flight and plane"
Cons: "N/A"

Pros: "All of the flight crew was personable and ready to accommodate any need we might have. Before we could ever get hungry, the staff was coming down the aisle with another serving of pretty good food!"
Cons: "We did have to wait on the plane for an hour after boarding, but I believe that was mostly due to wind."

Cons: "I chose my seat online and when I got to the gate they changed my seat to the way back of the plane"

Pros: "Although sitting in a plane in coach could never be considered a wonderful experience, Swiss Air did the most to make it so. in particular the crew was very responsive and cheerful. The leg room wasn't bad and they were very liberal with their wine and beer offering."

Pros: "The crew fed us well throughout the flight--and we got free wine with dinner. The food was pretty good for airplane food. We got fresh dinner rolls, salad, dessert, and Swiss cheese. We got ice cream part way through the trip. I loved that we got a piece of Swiss chocolate on each leg of the journey. The crew was friendly. There was a screen at each seat where you could watch movies or TV, listen to music, or track your flight. The entertainment was free, and the crew provided free earphones. Blankets and pillows were provided."
Cons: "Like most planes, there was not enough leg room. It makes it pretty uncomfortable for an 11-1/2 hour flight. The boarding was a little confusing, but no serious issues."

Pros: "The crew was both fun and efficient. The food was definitely a step ahead of American owned airline companies. Very good choices of movies and entertainment."
Cons: "We've got no complaints."

Cons: "Good"

Pros: "The flight crew was super friendly and efficient. Lots of leg room and the croissant is a nice touch!"

Cons: "Checking bags took longer than I would have liked."

Pros: "Crew was amazing. So patient and accommodating, even when passengers were a bit impatient. Cabin was clean, and it was good to have blankets and pillow on a long flight."
Cons: "Boarding was a bit chaotic. Food was okay but not substantial. Comfort was terrible in my seat - for some reason I had a seat with a metal box underneath so I could not stretch my legs. And the fellow next to me, in the middle, was over 6 feet and was VERY uncomfortable, even though he had legroom. There were good options for entertainment, but it was unreliable and had to be restarted once. Also, the screen was terrible quality and I could not see no matter how I adjust the screen angle or the light."

Pros: "my wife needed a wheelchair, so we were whisked between terminals. but if we had had to negotiate that long distance by ourselves we would probably have missed the connection because there was only an hour layover and the distance between gates was great"

Pros: "Very professional crew"
Cons: "Not enough food"

Pros: "The crew did a great job of handling our 2-hour delay in starting from Zurich - we were kept updated on what was happening, the aircraft was at a comfortable temperature (not too hot, not too cold), and we were given water during the wait. Also, during the flight, the crew kept coming through with more water, which was VERY NICE! Plus, the moist towels prior to landing. It makes a big difference in comfort levels for such a long flight."
Cons: "The on-board entertainment system was old and very clumsy to handle (with the embedded control in the arm rest). Also, it crashed on me two times and had to be re-booted, which was frustrating and took a long time every time it happened."

Pros: "See above"

Pros: "Courtesy of crew."

Cons: "Boarding was chaotic Crew was friendly but rarely came through Offering water during a 12 hr flight Also did not enforce "shades down" during the The night And did not respond to call lights"

Pros: "The crew was terrific."
Cons: "Economy seating very cramped. Cramped seat conditions, inability of video screen to articulate sufficiently to allow seeing the picture when the seat ahead was reclined."

Pros: "Boarding was very quick and efficient. Seating arrangements were nice pretty average overall."
Cons: "The crew was terrible. Young and in experience was on thing. But worse was they did the bare minimum and then hid out in the back for the rest of the flight. They served a weird cheese sandwich mid flight and would roll their eyes if you asked for water. The food selection and taste was bland or way too salty."

Cons: "I paid for a seat on the aisle with extra leg room. Seat 24D. There was only minimal foot space because of some type of metal box under seat 23D. I don't think that I should had to pay $45 for the extra leg room just to receive cramped foot space."

Cons: "Ice cream snack."

Pros: "El espacio dentro de la cabina y la atención de la tripulación. Me informaron de la inmediatez de mi siguiente conexión"

Pros: "Great crew"
Cons: "Automated check in machines were horrible and almost caused me to miss my flight"

Pros: "Staff was very friendly."
Cons: "Nothing to say here"

Pros: "As above."
Cons: "As above."

Pros: "Friendly staff and good support. Fast boarding."
Cons: "I could not check in myself and my spouse online, I had to call Swiss Air to get it resolved."

Cons: "Any semblance of social responsibility or ethical behavior."

Pros: "Due to the corona19 virus I was not able to travel and the airline phone lines have been so busy that I’m not sure if I will be able to change my ticket."

Cons: "Three hours departure delay from Munich to SFO"

Pros: "The fight had a lot of open seats as I had a whole row to myself! Also the crew was kind."
Cons: "Flight was delayed, but it didn’t interfere with my travel plans."

Cons: "Better Communication from Lufthansa"

Cons: "A delay to unload then reload bags, followed by no in-flight communication of connecting flights, led to a missed connection and an overnight hotel stay."

Pros: "Spacious seating, easy access to charging plug and good movies."
Cons: "Boarding is never fun, why not do back first?"

Pros: "Yes"
Cons: "None"

Cons: "Yo no pude viajar y no tube ni siquiera una remuneración un empleado de luftansa me dijo que no podía viajar Ali mejor por que no le simpatize y le quedó sin viajar y perdiendo dinero tiempo"

Cons: "Paid for and reserved bassinet seat but didn't receive bassinet seat. No one wanted to help. Very disappointed."

Pros: "Glad that i was able to secure a seat in the emergency exit row (row 70)"
Cons: "Wow, I am not a heavy woman, I wear a size large but I am not in the least obese, just tall and not skinny. The seat width was ridiculously tight! I have NEVER experienced such discomfort in a Emergency Row seat!"

Cons: "Sittinf in the middle"

Pros: "on time no hassle"
Cons: "nothing in particular"

Pros: "Great hospitality"
Cons: "Delayed"

Pros: "See above. The same applies."
Cons: "See above. The same applies."

Pros: "Still thinking about it."
Cons: "I didn't like that there was no organization. People just flooded the gate like animals.."

Pros: "The food was pretty good. Normally I can't eat airplane food but it was actually good."
Cons: "The seat didn't go back at all"

Pros: "Same as above but even better."

Cons: "None"

Cons: "The boarding process takes too long as people try to take too many things"

Pros: "Easy boarding"
Cons: "Could update movie selection"

Pros: "Staff was very attentive and friendly."
Cons: "Seating very cramped for a tall person. Tight squeeze!"

Cons: "That my seat was broken the whole time. I have a spinal injure and need to rotate positions while sitting. My seat was broken and my back hurt badly."

Pros: "Excellent, helpful steward."

Cons: "It took 90 (ninety!) minutes to get my suitcase at SFO. What a shitty, second-world airport. "Love" the crt tvs playing awfully low-quality "welcome to the US" videos. Way to showcase Silicon Valley's technical advances. Laughable."

Cons: "wha"

Pros: "Overall it was a great experience."

Pros: "keep going"

Cons: "the hot meals were aweful"

Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "11 hours of crying babies was too much. The practice of placing 4 cribs together on the bulkhead encouraged one baby to set the others off screaming. The toddler siblings then started fussing, the parents were then jumping up and down, jostling the other passengers, it was a nightmare! Hated every minute of it."

Cons: "Too cold"

Pros: "See above"
Cons: "See above"

Cons: "Boarding was delayed by 30 minutes but they did not inform us of the delay so everyone stood in line the entire time."

Pros: "Wonderful overall"

Cons: "seat did not recline at all,"

Cons: "Delated and boarding was a mess"

Cons: "Big Screen at front of cabin when I am 2 rows behind kept me awake Boarding was a mess, not really enoughpreboarding space to hold everyone. Organizers were rude and signs were confusing."

Cons: "Too hot and stuffy. No air."

Cons: "It would have been nice to know if each meal contained cheese, as oposed to just general "chicken and rice" and "noodles with marinara and cheese" It turned ut the rice was in a cheese sauce, and i could not eat it, and could also not eat the alternate option. Please think about giving out a detailed list of ingredients for the in flight meals so we can make more informed choices when we have food restrictions!"

Pros: "All the services were great."
Cons: "Everything was perfect."

Pros: "Smooth Ride Stewardesses"

Cons: "I did not like the surprise of having to pay for a seat reservation, once I had purchased my tickets. This was costly and certainly unexpected."

Cons: "It was long terrible 24 hr journey with a pregnant wife"

Pros: "Food was terrible"
Cons: "Toilets were not clean"

Pros: "Perfectly pleasant short flight with LH. Cabin crew were excellent and the snack and beverages were appropriate for this short flight."
Cons: "Boarding is a frustrating experience as LH do not 'filter' boarding so the process is un-necassarily frustrating......"

Pros: "Free movies"
Cons: "Free wifi. Better movie selection"

Pros: "The connection was way too tight."
Cons: "Hel-LAX flight was ok. LAX and connecting flight were bad, slow and delayed frequently."

Pros: "Loved Finnair. Hated Justfly.com. If you own this company, you need to end up like Blockbuster or Circuit City."
Cons: "If I would have purchased my tickets from Finnair.com, I would have had a much better experience. Kayak found me a good price but purchasing the tickets through Justfly.com was the biggest mistake of my life. The trip ended up costing me $285 more than what I budgeted and there was zero customer ser"

Cons: "Slow on boarding. I was swipe-checked twice, including the one by the airline."

Cons: "My luggage did not make it despite the long layover in Helsinki."

Pros: "Super quiet and comfortable flight, dedicated service, punctuality."
Cons: "I liked it all."

Pros: "Good flight, on time, nice crew"

Pros: "Most Improved Player - Finnair has done the best experience in overall long haul flights out of the 40plus airlines I have flown in the last 3 years; brand new planes, nice and diverse cabin crew, beautiful lightings videos details chocolates etc, best entertainment system in the industry, and things always go smooth in Helsinki airport. Awesome imrpovement over recent years."
Cons: "Big struggle for airlines still remains varying quality customer service. Finnair still seems to struggle with this occasionally. Finnair can work harder to keep customer service quality high. Hate to say it, but perhaps letting the bitter, last generation flight attendants who seem to have a grudge about the decline of the glamour and benefits of the job as flying has become commonplace with more competition (seen this on Finnair & N America’s older airlines line United)"

Pros: "Nice flight"

Pros: "the food provided under gluten-free food"

Cons: "On a 4 hour flight, food had to be purchased on board or (as I later learned) purchased and ordered in advance and this option was not offered to me in check in process."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Flight attendants in majority were rude, didn't care, unhelpful, for business class, service was worst I ever experienced. Plane is old, pretty dirty, they don't care about elders at all, this flight really ruined my whole travel experience, I doubt I'd ever want to go back."

Pros: "The seat back video screen"
Cons: "not enough room...to tight. I'm a smaller person and it was too cramped. The food was inedible."

Pros: "direct flight from Helsinki to Miami was good"
Cons: "Only few movies, announcements were very quiet, the pilot barely spoke English, flight was 2.5 hours late."

Cons: "They left my baggage behind!!"

Cons: "There was no reason given why the flight left Helsinki 35 minutes from schedule. Boarding aircraft seem to take a longer time than usual for a full flight. The flight crew during boarding in economy didn't have the push needed to get everyone seated in an efficient manner. The tv screen does not move out far enough to view when the person in front has their seat all the way back. Selection is limited compared to the non stop flight previous from Miami to Helsinki. There isn't an option to view the flight details in flight which is interesting to some passengers. At least have the option."

Pros: "Seats larger and more comfortablethan 3xpected."
Cons: "Food and drink overpriced."

Cons: "Not enough leg room."

Pros: "Professionalism, punctual, friendly service"
Cons: "You pay for your food just like you do on American Domestic airlines. However they offered coffee and their special Finnair grape juice."

Pros: "On time."
Cons: "Seats are uncomfortable."

Pros: "They moved my boyfriend and I from the back two seats on the plane up to the front with four seats across the middle! This was amazing for the long flight and allowed us to be very comfortable throughout the flight. Great service as well with three food servings and constant trash pickup."
Cons: "Woman in front talked endlessly"

Pros: "Bulkhead seat Good choice of movies"
Cons: "Seat recline broken. Sarcastic male steward. Terrible food. Contracted Norovirus from the plane. Need to better disinfect between flights."

Pros: "The flight to and from Los Angeles was operated by British Airways and was on one of their Airbus fleet. Boarding was completed efficiently and with ease. I sat on the upper deck and was very comfortable in comparison to other major airlines previously used for this particular flight. The plane was very clean and the crew were outstanding. Nothing appeared to be too much trouble for crew, and they were ready with beverages, including tea and coffee, and snacks throughout the flight. In flight entertainment was good. All in all very pleasant flight to and from the U K."

Pros: "Good customer service, top notch on all aspects. Very attentive staff.."
Cons: "2 hours late to leave but part of wing flap needed to be repaired before flight"

Pros: "The service were very good. Just wish the food better selection."
Cons: "The leg room were tight."

Pros: "It was a British Airways flight, plane was large, and felt more roomy than what I'm used to. The service was impeccable."

Cons: "I paid for an upgraded seat and after boarding other passengers were being moved to the same area that I had paid for an upgraded seat FOR FREE!"

Pros: "Staff as always is polite"
Cons: "The man sitting next to me required two seats. The arm rested had to be lifted to my seat to accommodate him. I complained but the flight was full and my seat could not be changed. I was told that British Air policy was not to require extraordinary over weight people to buy two seats. No, instead the person next to that overweight person has to suffer. A very stupid and unfair policy. As a result I will never book Finnair or British Air again if I can avoid it."

Pros: "everything was ok."
Cons: "I couldn't check in on time as the booking numbers were different on the actual company that was flying me. I was trying to do this on my phone and I had to call in each time. couldn't do it on the computer."

Pros: "Polite and friendly flight attendants, smooth boarding procedure"
Cons: "Trash everywhere on the plan by mid flight.... Broken tv screen"

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."

Cons: "Crew was very noisy. It was an overnight flight. Waking us up at 1am for dinner not really needed."

Cons: "Crew members were almost non-existent. Saw them beginning and end of flight only and this was not even red eye flight. Food quality was very poor for premium seating. Many on board had to approach flight crew in back of cabin to get something to drink throughout he 10 hour flight."

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: "For economy it felt roomier than other flights I have taken recently. Enjoyed the food the movies and the cabin staff."

Pros: "on time friendly staff"
Cons: "more food choices"

Pros: "The inflight movie selection."
Cons: "The uncomfortable chair."

Cons: "It was delayed uncomfortable and terrible service"

Pros: "Food, not crowded, small plane"
Cons: "No individual tvs"

Pros: "Friendly crew and clean plane. I liked the ipads and the drinks. It was pretty quick and easy."
Cons: "Terrible turbulence the entire way and as it was a smaller plane you could feel it for most of the flight. The food was also not very good..."

Cons: "Food wasn't very good"

Pros: "It was Iberia airline"
Cons: "Put in call light three times without response. They just shut it off!!"

Pros: "That they actually gave a meal."
Cons: "Main course of chicken and rice was clearly on the small size for a 10+ hour flight. The chicken was in some vague sweet and sour sauce. It was a good thing that I had bought sandwiches before boarding. Return flight LHR to LAX was on BA and the main course of chicken and mashed potatoes was substantially larger and tastier."

Pros: "Courtesy of attendants, smooth flight, good service"
Cons: "Food and your TV screens are not good. Very hard to operate a touch system which is so insensitive. Movie choice rather poor as well"

Pros: "It was a wonder flight. Great staff!!! highly recommended."

Pros: "And perfectly on time!"

Pros: "Very friendly staff, smooth ride and information provided"

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: "everything except food"
Cons: "food"

Pros: "It was a British airways code share so their service was fantastic... Great job BA 8005"
Cons: "Finnair service was similar to major US carriers... Horrible"

Cons: "Hi, Pliz sort out the menu,the food was rubbish."

Cons: "Hotel was rubbish"

Pros: "British airways, does what it says on the tin."
Cons: "If you have any problems. Do not call customer support!!! Call centre is in SA, and the operatives are unhelpful, put the phone down and incompetent. I have reservations wheather to book with BA ever again due to my bad experience. 2 hours wasted on the phone, followed by calls the next day to finally get 2 off flights cancelled and a return flight amended in my party of 3. Not fun!!"

Cons: "Understand sometimes out of airlines control but reduce delays"

Cons: "The 60 euro bagage fee for just checking 1 bag was excessive. There was no obvious way to pay on line or with the app"

Pros: "Smooth boarding/ de-planing ; everything was on time"
Cons: "Small aircraft"

Cons: "Free snack and tea and coffee"

Cons: "Wifi was down all the way."

Pros: "yes seats were more comfortable and more leg room than the other airlines I have used"
Cons: "It was all pretty good and despite leaving a little late we got there on time"

Cons: "Despite most of the plane being offered refreshment I never was as staff not organised enough to have time to do so, even though other airlines have managed easily."

Pros: "On toile."
Cons: "We logged 4.1 miles of walking in the airports because of gates and connection flights, baggage and customs."

Pros: "Left on time and arrived early"

Cons: "Generally, it was just good."

Cons: "BA need to stop the silly practice of boarding according to status - it’s inefficent and leaves me with the impression that BA is obsessed with pseudo hierarchy."

Pros: "I only like the voucher idea but still doesn't cover up all the other things ."
Cons: "I didn't like that it delayed my plans and it was unexpected and they did not inform us until I go to the airport , for 30 minutes in the air we had to wait 6 hours"

Cons: "Luggage arrived 2 days late."

Pros: "Love your airline nothing"

Pros: "Helpful staff, very pleasant flight and even arrived early!"
Cons: "The fact that you had to buy even water."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "The complete lack of help from BA staff after I missed my flight. No helpful suggestions at all when I asked for guidance. Just 'the flight is closed and there are no more seats left today'."

Cons: "How the power outage was handled at Schiphol was chaotic"

Pros: "Comfortable short hop"

Pros: "Nice efficient crew"
Cons: "Announcements on plane very loud sometimes"

Cons: "We where not able to take the fligth's due to a passport issue, according to Netherlands rules my passport should be valid 90 days before entering the country and my expired July 29, 2018, when i booked no one advised me of such rules. I'm trying to contact Brittish Airways to see if I can be refunded."

Pros: "Entertainment was adequate."
Cons: "The plane was freezing for 11 hours. Flight attendant said it would be adjusted but it never was. We were against a wall and seats did not recline. Very little room."

Pros: "Fast as smooth"
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "2 Hour Delay"

Cons: "The tickets arrived at 9.50 am for 10.55 take off. I tried to cHe Kin in line but it didn’t let me. I went to the counter and they told me check in had closed and I would have to buy another ticket. It was my fault for buying a ticket. Goodbye £200. Thanks BA"

Pros: "Last minute flight (booked 4 hours before departure), one way, economy, for €99 from Amsterdam to Edinburgh via Gatwick. Long layover at Gatwick (around 3 hours), but I had much work to do anyway, so time went faster than I realised. Not sure if this was the case at Schiphol, but at Gatwick had priority security queue as a BA customer."

Pros: "Very little."
Cons: "Awful (typically BA) configuration im Club World on a 787 - cramped, inadequate storage, just lacking essential comfort for a supposed premium class. Food: seriously, I've had better in student cafes. Just stop it BA - its like some kind of prison food. Entertainment: meh. Small selection of new release movies. Crew: with the exception of one - just one from a complement of 15 odd - of the crew, the rest were a surly, inhospitable miserable bunch. If you hate your job don't take it out on customers - especially in a service industry."

Cons: "The boarding process could be better"

Pros: "Simple flight left later than expect but arrived earlier than scheduled. Leg room was plenty and not like other airline where you feel packed like sardines."
Cons: "Nothing so far just a shame my luggage was damaged."

Cons: "It is difficult to get in and out of chair. I wish the chair handle would be moved up . Every time I needed to go to bathroom , I hurt myself."

Cons: "Nothing."

Cons: "I didn't like the no wifi on the planes and that you couldn't upgrade at the gate like you can with many other airlines."

Pros: "Polite crew, flight was on time landing - even early. Seats were comfortable."

Cons: "Flight was late"

Cons: "According yo the kayak app on the moment of booking the flight was going to Heathrow, but it went to Gatwick. In addition, the tariff did not include one checked luggage as shown on the app as well. Really disappointed with my first use of kayak."

Cons: "No food or drink provided in crappy seats"

Pros: "the staff was nice"

Pros: "The staff where very good, was comfy for short trip"
Cons: "2hr 40min delay, and a very hectic and long boarding process"

Pros: "Quick and efficient. Very informative about delays."

Pros: "Every thing."
Cons: "All good"

Pros: "I don't know how airlines get away with all the stipulations and regualations they have in the buying process there is. Otho g I like about the scam artist they are"
Cons: "The fact they they can just make it a policy and then because the employees have to have a job and enforce it blows my mind. 200 dollar transfer fee plus the difference in the ticket when it's over two weeks in advance. You people are scam artist"

Pros: "The gate agent was able to find me another option."

Cons: "They charged me for my baggaged. Said it wasnt included with the ticket"
