Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Seats comfortable. Food was good."
Cons: "Information on when we can check in on upcoming flights. Other airlines we have booked for flights will email us 24 hours prior to departure. Virgin Atlantic did not. I had to call and I was directed to their web site and was able to check in on line. Thanks"
Cons: "Staff were unhelpful and ran out of many food items by the time we were served - meaning that there wasn’t anything available for us to eat as we don’t eat eggs. The check-in was stressful and staff were keen to help - unprofessional and unsatisfactory."

Cons: "Seats were really old and outdated"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 crew was amazing and effiecent. Had weather delays, bag got left, but got it the next day."
Pros: "The crew were really nice and seemed to genuinely care about the passengers, were approachable and were very happy to chat with passengers and help them out."
Cons: "The food options always seem to run out by the back of the plane and this time didn't match the menu they gave me at the start of the flight, not that I minded because the option I was given was pretty tasty."

Cons: "Getting home 5 hrs later than planned"

Cons: "Older media entertainment screen with hard to use touch interface."
Cons: "Once In London, we were told by British Airways that was flying us to Nice that Delta had “lost” our infant electronic ticket - It took 1.5h to get new ticket reissued! We missed our connection and had to wait 3 more hours for the next flight - We were somewhat lucky as multiple flights were delayed/cancelled that day - I will avoid using Virgin Atlantic in the future as they need Delta and British operate their flights and this makes it prone to issues like that"
Pros: "Virgin atlantic is the best airline with Dreamliner"
Cons: "During my flight from LAX to LHR I requested (pre-booked) a special meal (Asian Vegetarian). During the flight I was told there was no such request in their records and therefore I had to stay hungry for the entire duration of the flight. During my return flight from LHR to LAX the in flight entertainment system for my seat was not functional. I requested it to be reset several times and in spite of the hostess resetting it several times, it did not function. I had to stay without an entertainment system during the entire flight. This was my first time travel with Virgin Atlantic. I may never fly Virgin Atlantic again."
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: "A large selection of movies, shows and music to choose from. Flight crews were attentive and friendly."
Cons: "The narrow space between each rows for passengers to move from their seats."
Cons: "Food was awful. Sorry. Breakfast was unrecognizable. Landed hungry."
Pros: "The Business - was The Business! Loved it."
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: "The flight was on time."
Cons: "The floor at our feet had been spilled on during a previous flight and not cleaned. Bag was lost and not returned for 5 days. Crew during flight was flippant and disinterested in service...unless you were Economy+."
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: "Smooth boarding process"
Cons: "Delays caused us to miss our flight from London to Vienna"
Pros: "The planes are really cool and seats were very comfortable. The part about phone/tablet holder in front of passenger is awesome. Crew was friendly"
Cons: "Vegetarian food selection could be better, need more content in movie selection"
Pros: "Flight okay and staff attentive. Seats still to close together. Had to purchase seat to guarantee not be in middle rows. Plane very warm throughout flight."
Cons: "Selection of entertainment good but touch screen very unresponsive. Hard to change volume and maneuver. Ear sets would not stay connected."
Cons: "Seat reclining happens even during meal time and landing! I had to ask crew to get passenger in front to put seat back upright during meal time!!! Crew should've noticed themselves and ask the passenger without my prompting!! So annoyed!! I complained to VA too"
Pros: "Virgin has the nicest staff, good food, and excellent movie options. I had a great time on my flight!"
Pros: "Dinner was fantastic! Excellent meal. Flight crew were terrific as well."
Cons: "Dislike the recent removal of onboard snacks. It's a very long flight. Nuts or chips or cheese and crackers would be very helpful. Had no idea this service was discontinued until way into the flight. Not sure why it was stopped. Btw I don't believe this was a Virgin Atlantic flight, I believe it was Virgin AUSTRALIA. Think you have names backwards on survey."
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: "I did not get the requested meal. I had requested Asian Veg meal. I had reconfirmed that Virgin Atlantic Kiosk at Heathrow airport as well. In flight when I asked cabin crew they said they didn't get any request. I was hungry whole flight. Very bad experience."
Pros: "Virgin does phenomenal service; I wish delta would copy their level of service."
Pros: "Make sure you bring food with you because they will starve you. I also asked for band-aide 2x but it never came. Service is very poor."
Cons: "Service is very poor, ground and air crew are not friendly, can even be driscriminating. There's scarcity of food in this flight. They need to give snacks more often than one in a 13hr flight."
Cons: "Cold draft at all times."
Pros: "The meals were very small and not very tasty. Economy appears to have lost staff as it takes the entire flight to get a drink and dinner, the feeling you get is that you should just get on board and then sit quietly for 7 hours and not ask for anything. The entertainment does not have a very large selection and if you fly regularly does not seem to update very often."
Pros: "Food was a big improvement and staff very friendly and helpful. Seats not as comfy as some airlines but we're okay."
Pros: "Quick boarding"
Cons: "Arriving over a half an hour late"
Pros: "Crew, atmosphere, timeliness. I was satisfied overall"
Cons: "Gate number changed couple times before flight departure"
Pros: "Good variety and quality meals during the flight as well as a super array of entertainment"
Cons: "The seats lack cushion so a 7 hour flight gets quite painfully after a while"
Cons: "They ran out of food by the time they got to the back of the plane."
Cons: "I had a tight connection, but made it to the gate in time. I walked down the jetway to what appeared to be a locked door, with no one there to guide me on how to board. It turns out there was a stairwell at the end of the jetway, which was to take me to a bus on the tarmac. This was very stressful."
Cons: "The international flights plane was much older - janky outdated screen that’s hard to use, zero leg room, and usb outlets that didn’t work. Also the WiFi kept dropping. The delta staff, food service and nice extras like warm cookies and towels were excellent."
Cons: "Working USB ports. On time departure."
Pros: "The food. And services."
Cons: "Upgrade for customers like me. For next fly to first class."
Cons: "The girls were sweet as usual!"
Cons: "Late and bumpy"
Pros: "the crew was excellent the boarding was satisfactory"
Cons: "everything was from satisfactory to excellent"
Pros: "Crew was great"
Cons: "I actually can not complain"
Pros: "They ran out of my preferred menu choice for the first meal. Martha went out of her way to bring my first choice for the second meal, which was very thoughtful. Nancy brought my friend an extra meal."
Cons: "I thought there would be more new releases to watch, but overall the selection was good."
Pros: "There were minimal passengers on the flight so I was able to have the entire row to myself. The flight was also very short which is always nice."
Pros: "Everything good"
Pros: "Delta’s notifications are very timely and helpful. They even tell you when your bags are on the plane and at baggage claim."
Cons: "Not enough legroom to make any flight enjoyable."
Pros: "They ran out of salads so that was a little disappointing."
Cons: "The flight would be more comfortable if we had more leg room."
Pros: "Video access"
Cons: "Too hot, too crowded"
Cons: "Didn’t get our beverage and snack till we were almost ready to land at Charlotte"
Pros: "This was two hours of absolute freezing temperature"
Cons: "It was so cold it was actually unbeasable"
Pros: "Great experience. Left on time and landed early. Comfortable and great crew"
Cons: "Wish there were more snack options"
Pros: "Really nice staff all the way through from gate agent to flight attendants. Flight left on time and landed early. Night and day vs American"
Cons: "Nothing. Flight was perfect."
Cons: "I didn’t appreciate that your rude flight attendant allowed another passenger to move suitcase and she got an attitude with me. Delta there is always something on your flights."
Pros: "I araised safely in New York and all my luggage finally arrived. I suppose that is good but so much else was bad, very bad."
Cons: "The morning of my flight I got a notice the departures time was changed by one hour later but to still arrive at the airport at the same time. So I ended up spending almost four hours at the airport before leaving. Boarding was a mess as "groups" were not called but everyone just rushed the gate in mass and we're let on. Staff were functional but looked and acted surly. It was a functional flight in that I arrived at my destination but it was not managed and I did not feel my business was wanted-only my money."
Pros: "Like the smaller contingent of passengers. Boerding a lot quicker and simpler. Captain gave us some interesting details about plane and its capabilities."
Cons: "Exit row seats were were very uncomfortable, very little padding, although there was plenty of legroom. No snacks or entertainment. WiFi did not work."
Cons: "I was the very first person in line for Zone 3, and they automatically told me I had to gate check my bag, which would mean adding at least 20 minutes when I landed. I took it on the plane anyway; and there was PLENTY of space in the overhead compartments. This feels like I’m being treated as a second class citizen because I was unwilling to be nickel and dimed for seat or boarding upgrades. It’s infuriating"
Pros: "It was great because I was able to get an aisle seat."
Cons: "Like it all"
Pros: "Delta personnel were very pleasant/friendly"
Pros: "Flight attendant was nice. She changed my seat to the front cause the guy behind me was kicking my chair."
Cons: "They cancelled my flight from the day before and when they rebooked my flight, they could of gave me a better seat."
Cons: "My return portion of my flight was canceled and had to purchase a new ticket. I would like a full refund of my expenses."
Pros: "Left on time!"
Cons: "Too cramped"
Cons: "I understand gate changes happen, but I got 4 texts switching the gates back and forth. Is that necessary?"
Pros: "Crew was very nice and accomodating"
Cons: "Entertainment system was very poor. Quality of sound and picture were substandard. Could not understand or see the movies. Seat were uncomfortable and boarding in Atlanta was very poorly handled. Probably will not fly Delta again although we have frequent flyer status."
Pros: "The flight attendants were very nice and the boarding crew. From the time I walked up to the counter at LGA to the time I exited the plane in CLT, I was treated so kindly and with such respect. Kudos to the Delta Crew."
Cons: "The FLIGHT!!!!! There were delays. Scheduled take of time was 6:59 PM. We took off at 735 PM. Once I was on the plane, I started kicking myself in the you know what because I knew immediately I was scammed. I had purchased a 1st Class ticket for $400+, only to find that my comfort would be the equivalent of that if I purchased a ticket in economy. My long legs would still be cramped. For the past few years, I have been purchasing 1st class for it's spaciousness. On this flight, on the RCJ700, I did not fly comfortably. The space was very tight, and I was able to stretch my legs as if I sat in economy. This was by far, my most uncomfortable flight ever. SMH; A WASTE OF MY HARD EARNED MONEY!!!!!"
Pros: "But, this wasn't bad at all, even though we were on the very last seat of the plane. We were next to one of the flight attendants during take off and landing and she was very kind and we were speaking with her. The flight was smooth"
Pros: "We spent 90 min in line to take off on the tarmac. Pilot kept us informed. Crew were very pleasant."
Pros: "The flight was on schedule and landed early, and the pilot landed that plane very gently. It was quite impressive."
Cons: "I purchased a first class ticket in hopes that I would have a lot more comfort during the flight. It took me quite some time to get comfortable. The seat was ok, but I found the pillows to be very small and flat. I needed multiple pillows. The head rest was not adjustable, so I also found this to be uncomfortable. Usually when I fly AA, the headrest is adjustable. My final dislike was that the beverage selection was limited. I'm quite sure there was plenty of alcohol, but what about those customers who do not drink alcoholic beverages? I asked for hot chocolate, there was none. I asked for hot tea with honey, there wasn't any. So all in all my flight was okay, but that is solely because of the flight attendant and pilot. They did their jobs and they did an excellent job."
Pros: "I got a seat in the exit row with lots of leg room. The entertainment that I didn't use offered a great selection with very recent movies, etc."
Cons: "I didn't like that I had to take a bus to my terminal. I didn't like the fact that my gate was changed more than five times. I didn't like that my flight time was changed more than 15 times with no reason why until boarding time. I didn't like the fact that I did not get a seat assignment until boarding the plane. I didn't like the fact that they couldn't manage to scramble another plane and crew, but instead forced us to wait over four hours for one that was stuck somewhere else in the country."
Pros: "Speed and comfortable kind bars were a nice touch"
Cons: "Very small spaces for everything."
Cons: "Luggage went elsewhere"
Pros: "Plane left 2 hours late."
Pros: "The boarding process was very well done. Gate agent and flight attendants on top of their game. This is how it is supposed to be done. Thank you."
Cons: "Although weather played a part in the poor experience, it wasn't the only factor. Delta was unprepared."
Pros: "Being interviewed as I waited in line to check my luggage. Personal touch and felt good safety screening. Bottle of water given out. The friendliness and helpfulness of the crew. I was in the back of the plane. Very cheery despite the masses of people."
Cons: "Seat size small. Although I appreciate the serving of food during the flight, felt a lot of junky carbs and sugar."
Pros: "Overall i was comfortable. I appreciate that they serve tea & it's not old & bitter tasting."
Cons: "we started to board 10 minutes before scheduled take off so we were late."
Cons: "I paid for the upgrade to Delta Comfort Plus for an aisle seat & for some reason they reassigned our seats and I got Putin a middle seat. It was not what I paid for and it was very uncomfortable. If people pay to upgrade to specific seats we should. It be reassigned to whatever seat they want to put us in."
Pros: "Loved this flight, crew was amazing!"
Cons: "Over 2 hours late, and this flight has been late 6 of the last 7 days"
Pros: "There wasn’t anything to highlight as good. On this trip except LHR was organized and clean. The boarding was a free for all after the elderly and young had been boarded footstep as they should."
Cons: "The ground staff were rude and officious"
Pros: "Lufthansa is always reliable. Flight was fine. The staff were kind and efficient in their jobs."
Cons: "There is no inflight entertainment on these flight but I brought my own."
Cons: "I missed my connecting flight because my flight was late. I had to get to my destination for a wedding."
Pros: "Plane was super nice and new and crew was great!"
Pros: "The Munich airport presented a startling contrast to heathrow! Both the flight from London and from Munich were very nice. I was so tired that I am sure I missed a lot."
Pros: "The crew's efficiency and friendliness"
Cons: "Having to fly to Germany to come to San Diego"
Cons: "Online check-in did not work. When I checked in at the airport, I received only a middle seat."
Pros: "Once again, the in-flight crew was excellent. The flight was good, but no entertainment is provided."
Cons: "Another late take off, probably because the incoming connections were late. So it was good that the airline delayed the connecting flights. However, this leg of the trip was so late that I barely made it to third leg of the trip. A huge problem is that each of these international airports require that you go through the security check again. For that reason, connecting legs of trips through these airports should not be scheduled so close together. Heathrow is the worst, with security staff that, at best, don’t care that you have a close connection to make and just ignore your pleas to speed up the process, and at worst, are just plain rude."
Pros: "Only an hour and a half but perfect service and even a nice meal. Because of the delay there were a lot of questions to the crew but they managed to keep travelers calm and happy."
Cons: "Flight was delayed but that had nothing to with the crew and the service."
Pros: "Comfortable seats, good legroom."
Cons: "Slight delay."
Pros: "Made up most of the time. Latrobe leaving due to queue."
Cons: "That I did not know in advance there was a snack. Would have odered vegan as it was had nothing."
Cons: "They cancelled my flight"
Cons: "No body helped me. My first flight got delayed and missed my connecting flight. People were rude and showed that they didn’t care. I had to wait 4 hours for the next flight. I received little compensation"
Pros: "The counter staff in Heathrow was great"
Cons: "The flight"
Pros: "On time and good service"
Pros: "I upgraded to the premium food package for a small price. It was delicious and filling."
Cons: "The quality of the sound from the earphones was not very good so that made the movies less enjoyable."
Pros: "Food is worse"
Cons: "Too crowded"
Pros: "Borading Flights on time Crew Confort was just ok."
Cons: "Food. Very bad. Tasteless. And not much food provided. Emirates have more dishes and many servings. ENtertainment: Not many regiional movies. Overall movies are very few."
Pros: "Very organized"
Pros: "Everyone are friendly thank you"
Pros: "The crew were friendly, respknisbe and professional, while the food was tasty. We were on time and kept well informed along the way. The movie selection was good and the touch screens were some of the best in terms of image quality and responsiveness I've seen aboard a plane."
Cons: "Space and comfort. Lufthansa is joining too many airlines in figuring out the exact minimal space a human needs to be able to be seems hurtling through the air. This leads to cramped, tight spaces with little to no freedom to shift your body. Because of this limited space, seats can only recline so far and leave one uncomfortable, though that angle is enough to create even less space for the person behind you or for you, when faced with a reclining front neighbor. So, minimal benefit of minimal recline and maximum discomfort caused for that minimal gain."
Pros: "Very quiet flight, almost in time"
Cons: "I was ask to change seats twice so a family could sit together ( not a problem) but because of the change i was in row 41 and had no more selection on food (already by row 36 they only had pasta). Drinks were slow and we were almost done with lunch by the time the cart came."
Cons: "Flight was delayed want to take off. Luggage did not transfer. Four days before luggage will get to us."
Pros: "Crew, food, service location of my seat."
Cons: "The entertainment was lacking. I fly a lot so more variety would have been nice in the movie selections."
Pros: "Clean, polite, new, MUC is a sparkling modern airport. Crew looked snazzy and there were plenty of downstairs bathrooms. On flight movies are great as were audio books on board,"
Pros: "Flight was on time. Boarding was efficient"
Cons: "Food and beverages were pretty stingy"
Pros: "The crew was working hard, most were extremely nice and helpful. Their service was excellent. I enjoyed the food and drinks. The plane was clean and looked well-maintained. Most of the flight was smooth."
Cons: "Flight from Munich to Charlotte: I do not fly that frequently (just only about 1 or 2 times per year - usually with Lufthansa) so I had no idea that as an Economy class passenger I cannot use the Business class bathroom. I admit my mistake for violating this etiquette. There was no line formed so I just used it, but as I was leaving the toilet a stewardess grabbed my arm and sternly made me aware of my trespassing. She was very professional and I believe it was not her intention; however, she made me feel very stupid for not realizing that the Business class toiled is for the Business class customers only. Don't get me wrong, if I paid premium for my fare I would probably expect less crowded toilets too. In my opinion, this unwritten rule should be made more explicit to the Economy class passengers, as nobody likes to feel embarrassed by mistakenly wandering into an exclusive club they don't belong to. I know there are separating curtains, but they were open. I saw a line forming in the Economy section so my next instinct was to go a different direction, which led me to the Business section. I really needed to use the bathroom, so I did not think of the proper etiquette at the moment."
Pros: "Over the length of the 9.5 hour flight, my time in the Economy class was that the crew were professional, courteous and especially helpful. There is a magnitude of difference between the attitude and professionalism of this airline over any American airline I have flown. In the future, Lufthansa will be my first consideration."
Pros: "Food was great, as was entertainment interface on tv."
Pros: "The pilots"
Cons: "It was a bit hot in the salon. Food was average. Flight intendants were not very attentive. My neighbor was waiting for about 20 min to get someone picked up her empty glass. Entertainment: there was no Russian language."
Pros: "The flight itself was fine."
Cons: "Getting to LHR early for. 6:30 am flight was no use since they don't have any departing flights between 11pm and 6 am. So we were stuck in the lobby for hours until ticket agents arrived at 4 am. There was one open coffee shop however. Then we waited for security to arrive at about 4:30 am to get through and it was quite a slow shake down. One through there were no restaurants open until 5-5:30 am. The flight itself was fine. Facilities at Frankfurt were minimal with toilets offering only one stall each. While standing in the long queue a lady and her young daughter were rudely ushered out by the male custodian for cleaning, and then it could not be used for another 10-15 minutes."
Pros: "Loved the personal TV screen, meals, friendly service, competitive pricing, arriving even earlier than scheduled, on time departures."
Cons: "I wished the blankets were warmer. Maybe a fleece. I was cold part way through the flight, even with the blanket provided."
Pros: "Again the friendly crew."
Cons: "The snack at dinner. A simple sandwich would be better instead of the heated pizza and large sandwich they did give."
Pros: "We try to fly Lufthansa when we go to Europe (2x a year). This trip we upgraded to more leg room in economy and what a difference! Everything else was the same, which has always been excellent. Munich Airport has great food and shopping. Lufthansa's service is truly impeccable, the airline staff were constantly walking up and down the aisles offering food and drink and comfort. Great end to a three week trip in Italy, Croatia, Slovenia and of course Germany!"
Pros: "Everything on the plane seems clean and well maintained - nothing is broken, worn or soiled. Lufthansa spends a little more effort than other airlines to cut down on waste when it comes to their in-flight food service (real silverware and reuseable dishes). The Munich airport is by far more convenient than Frankfurt when making connections in Germany."
Cons: "I was a bit disappointed with the limited seat availability/choices. If you cannot check in online several hours ahead of the departure you are typically left with center/middle seats in the area of the plane."
Pros: "The crew was very friendly and accommodating (a first for me) they really did an outstanding job to make sure we were comfortable...they seemed to be actually enjoying what they were doing :) The food tasted amazing and was plenty..this is also a first for me, I had never said that the food on a flight was good before. The crew walked around the cabin many time throughout the long flight with drinks on their trays (not just the usual drink service) which was much appreciated. Overall they get a 10 from me! This was my first time flying with Lufthansa. I will most definitely fly with them again and recommend to all my friends."
Cons: "the selection of movies could have been a bit better. Although much to choose from such as tv shows etc., more recent movies would have been a plus."
Pros: "The price for a direct flight was reasonable"
Cons: "Wifi wasn't working and movie selection poor. No individual screens especially for a 10 hr flight. Staff were not that friendly either. Old plane and small seats. I would rather pay more for a more comfortable flight."
Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "In seat entertainment, better food."
Pros: "Staff was friendly. They fixed my flight from Frankfurt to Denver and got me an aisle seat."
Cons: "Leaving late from BOTH legs on the way to England. :-( Being told in email that I was going to have an aisle seat on the flight from Frankfurt to Denver, but then on the day I was told I wouldn't."
Pros: "On time, nice and professional personnel, kids-friendly, tasty & free food & drinks. Great airlines every time!"
Pros: "I loved how friendly the airline attendants were."
Cons: "I didn't like how in the Munich airport I couldn't find a place to plug my phone in. they should make those more accessible"
Pros: "Lufthansa, Check in smooth. Thank you for your service, overall you made for us, as a family, a long trip enjoyable.The crew it was amazing, I don't know how they do it all those hours to maintain that good, pleasant and professional presence. Thank you to the captain for smooth landing. We know what company to choose next time,"
Cons: "I was nauseous during the plane ride walked to back of plane and was told I wasn't allowed to be back there. When that is where the bathrooms were. I asked for an extra pillow when there were 10 free seats the crew never honored my request. Not once did they ask if I was ok. The food was inedible. And I was completely uncomfortable the entire flight."
Pros: "The whole flight was very comfortable"
Cons: "all the food relied on bell pepper for flavor. Bell pepper is highly overrated"
Pros: "Good plane, good crew, very nice having a row to myself. Loved the pretzel roll sandwich - good flavor, good texture, just the right amount of warmth!"
Cons: "Was spoiled by the 787 entertainment system on the outbound trip to London - this one was sluggish and dim. The curry chicken meal was not terrible, but not great."
Pros: "Staff/stewards were very upbeat and pleasant, professional and were perfect at looking after very tired customers (at least for me)."
Pros: "Due to business I travel allot so I deal with allot of airlines. This is by far the best airlines I have used. Excellent crew and airport staff. I don’t think words can express how satisfied I am with this airlines and airport. The nicest people and great service. Clean and modern aircraft. Going to try flying only with KLM from now on."
Cons: "Very nice crew and great food"
Pros: "The plane ✈️ itself the attendants . The entertainment on board. Really great"
Cons: "Nothing dissatisfying about the flight nor the airline staff . Very polite, very professional. It was a Great flight. For long trips this airline is one of the best."
Pros: "Klm's consistantly high standards in everything they do."
Pros: "Customer care was super supportive"
Cons: "Inflight sandwiches"
Cons: "Boarding was chaotic & therefore delayed take off a little Receiving luggage was slow -@ 35 minutes from landing to luggage claim, so actual arrival was considerably later for those meeting me"

Pros: "Once aboard the plane, all went well and I experienced excellent service from the cabin attendants."
Cons: "The flight was delayed (again!) for some 40 minutes and I was worried that I would miss my connection flight in Atlanata. Fortunately the pilot made up for the delay (probably costing the airline thousands in fuel). It seems these days that every KLM flight I take is delayed. This stretch goes back to 2015! Yet KLM prides itself as being punctual. Not the KLM that I have been flying!"
Pros: "Best airline in the business quick efficient and outstanding service What else can you say"
Pros: "And i got it 2 days later. I had to buy a lot of items which were in my suitcase The returning of the suitcase was awfull. In tge end after many phone calls I received it On the 18/12 evening, 2 days after my landing"

Even then she was not satisfied, she abused me the whole flight damaged the screen so I could not use it until the steward fixed it. Demanded that I except any and all alcohol to give to her to drink. When I am tea total she then continued to abuse me. I asked the steward to move me he just shrugged his shoulders and said there was nowhere else. This is definitely my the worst flight I have experienced."

Pros: "The service"
Cons: "The seats"
Pros: "The staff tried to help me when it was evident we would not arrive on time"

Pros: "Flying with KLM is a pleasure"
Pros: "Good selection of movies."
Cons: "Very small seats with no leg room and very little room on either side. The food was bad - even when compared to other airplane food. Plane is kept too warm."

Cons: "Seats were a little too narrow, and quite uncomfortable when a broad shouldered person is sitting next to you"
Pros: "Same as above"
Pros: "Wide selection of entertainment, food was good."
Cons: "Boarding unorganized, but that may have been more of a passenger issue then KLM"
Pros: "KLM fed a sandwich even though the flight was only 2 hours. The crew was pleasant. Getting through the Amsterdam airport to catch a connecting flight with only an hour to do so was no big deal. Airport staff was pleasant and helpful."

Cons: "Food was not good at all on outbound flight, limited vegetarian options inbound and was not able to select preference prior to flight. staff on outbound flight were unfriendly and service stopped after meal."
Cons: "Whoever designed and built this airplane should literally be INDICTED - AND I AM NOT KIDDING! We were in disbelief the moment we boarded and saw the airplane. 10 people across jammed into the row??!! - and on an long international flight?? - are you kidding??!! Further, these were the SMALLEST seats I have EVER been forced to sit in. Neither I, or my friend came close to fitting. We literally had to alternate getting up and standing because we were literally overlapping each other when we sat! (His shoulder and arm were literally on top of me!!). It was so bad that when the stewardess came rolling down the aisle with her cart, I had to be aware and see her in advance so I could literally TURN MY BODY OVER TO THE LEFT HALF ON TOP OF THE PERSON SITTING NEXT TO ME SO SHE WOULDN'T TAKE OFF MY ARM AND SHOULDER. ULTIMATELY, SOMEONE, OR MORE THAN ONE PERSON, IS GOING TO GET SERIOUSLY HURT BY THIS RECKLESS, GREED-DRIVEN DESIGN!! The OVERT GREED by the airline (American) clearly reflected by this in trying to JAM as many human beings into a flight as possible like Sardines is DISGUSTING!!! You simply DO NOT TREAT HUMAN BEINGS THIS WAY!! It is also clear evidence that there needs to be tighter standards, regulations and penalties by the FAA and what is allowed by airlines. AND I AM SENDING A LETTER TO THE FAA!!!"
Pros: "The crew did an excellent job definitely went beyond good service, I enjoyed the food and they came often offering drinks. It was probabky my first long flight I wasn't thirsty at all. Overall I was very happy with my trip hope thank you!"
Cons: "I got slightly cold at one point and wished the lights were I little lower but I understand why the weren't."
Pros: "This flight was co-shared by British airways. After our horrible flight from San Diego to London, we decided to upgrade our returning flight from London to San Diego to a economy plus premier. This time the plane seems newer and recently refurbished. The seat can recline more, with lump bar support and nice foot/leg rest. It has a bit more legroom. The cabin is nice and new with large view touchscreen TV for each seat. Gluten free meal was good, I'm just glad they finally boarded the plane with my GF meal (after repeated unsuccessful attempts). The service was great, our BA attendants were polite and attentive."
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 crew were very friendly, well organized. movie selection was great. meals were surprisingly good and plentyful"
Cons: "not enough leg room. and i have to point out that I am a petite 110 lbs, 5'2" woman. as soon as the person in front of me reclined their seat to either sleep or lounge, I had my food tray on my chest and the small tv screen 8 inches away from my nose. Thankfully Im small but the man sitting next to me was rather tall and had to turn into a human pretzel to fit in that seat and space allotted."
Pros: "Courtesy of staff was top notch"
Cons: "Older plane. Entertainment system very dated poor screen quality."
Cons: "No TSA pre check"
Pros: "The service were very good. Just wish the food better selection."

Cons: "The USB charge points do not work. Plus, the touch screens for the IFE require a lot of hard tapping on the screen, annoying for the people in the seat on which back the screen is placed."
Pros: "Great flight and nice people"
Cons: "Because the flight was through british airways, extra baggage was $90 much more expensive than Finnair's prices. After paying that before departure to London I recieved an email from British Airways that stated an extra bag for both my flight to London and return flight to San Francisco had been fully paid for. At the airport I was told by British Airways employees that I would have to pay another $90 regardless of what my email said because their official prices are $90 each way not both. I showed them the confirmation I had recieved and all they could say was "that is confusing". There was very little empathy or attempt to help. As a result I was forced to leave the suitcase behind with my acquaintance in London and do an in airport shuffle of all of my belongings. The flight was great but beware emails that may not match up with online info."
Pros: "We ended up being on a BA flight which was fine. Ok service, check in from London much better than USA. In flight entertainment good."
Cons: "Nonchalant crew on the way back, I asked if they had any snacks half way into the flight as I didn't eat dinner, I went to the galley and the head of customer service heard my request, looked at me and just carried on reading his paper leaving a flight attendant to offer me a small bag of pretzels , which she had to search for. Very poor"
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: "The movies did not play on my screen. I tried to use the screen on the seat next to me and the movies quit in the middle. It was very annoying."
Cons: "I booked this through Finnair and it was a British Airways code share .I was unable to get the record locator for BA and could not check in prior to getting to the airport ."
Pros: "Good service...."
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: "The new 777 airplanes were exceptional as well as the splendid airline crew!"
Pros: "I was very pleased with the overall experience on the flight from London to Charlotte. The flight itself was very pleasant, the crew very accommodating, & the food, snacks & beverages very good. The entertainment provided was certainly suitable for my tastes & kept me occupied for the majority of the trip. There was also blackout time provided for sleeping. The seats were a little cramped, but overall I rate my experience as very good."
Pros: "crew were great!"
Cons: "movies offered were poor. a dinosaur (great for kids), and a movie about love (horrible for all). food was yuck."
Pros: "The inflight movie selection."
Cons: "The uncomfortable chair."
Pros: "Very relaxing, enjoyable flight. Entertainment was great with many different options to choose from (music, tv, movie, games). The plane was not full and I had the entire row to myself, making the flight that much more comfortable. Awesome crew that was attentive and friendly. Probably one of the best flights I've ever been on. Thanks!"
Pros: "Crew was (as usual on BA flights) friendly, attentive, and personable."
Cons: "Boarding was a bit chaotic. Everyone was all bunched up and you could not get through when your rows were called. Also, when they "boarded by rows" the called rows 23-50+ all at once so that people were all bunched up in the isles of the plane. It really did not help"
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."
Cons: "In-flight entertainment was not working. Made and 11hr flight seem light 20 hrs."
Pros: "Friendly flight crew made me feel very welcome . Food and drinks service was excellent, nice choices. Movie selection was vast."

Pros: "The pilot was briefing us about everything There werent much passengers so we were seated in a way where we had space. Great entertainment choices Great food"
Cons: "Notting i can think of"
Cons: "My Finnair flight from London to New York was cancelled due to weather conditions in New York. I understand that. What made me very frustrated and angry is that when I contacted Finnair to reschedule the flight I was told the flight was managed by British Airways and I would have to contact them When I contacted British Airways they said it was a Finnair flight and I had to contact them. I finally had no recourse but to buy another ticket through another airline. I feel that I should be reimbursed for my Finnair ticket from London to New York! I paid for a flight I never took. (The Finnair flight from New York to London was fine.)"
Cons: "First of all, though this was booked as a Finnair flight, Finnair was never part of the process after the booking. We rec'd an email from Kayak saying we could check in 36 hrs early - not so. Even at the 24 hr mark, we were unable to check in via Finnair - had to go to British Airways. Finnair was not represented at either airport - British Airways. On the return, British Airways canceled our flight (2 hrs before takeoff), and we could not get a non-stop flight home. This meant that we had to change terminals, retrieve our bags at the layover, recheck, etc. which of course, added 3 hrs to the original length of the trip. Where's our compensation? We paid for a round trip non-stop flight."
Pros: "Crew politeness"
Cons: "Food is only average and not enough good movies to watch"
Pros: "I made it home safe"
Cons: "Little legroom for such a long flight. Too crowded."

Pros: "I cannot say enough about how kind, caring and paitent the flight crew was with not only me but others I saw around me. Kudos!!!"
Pros: "Although I booked this as Finnair, it was actually a British Airways flight, as I knew it would be. And it was fine--I don't think Finnair gets much credit, but whatever. I'd actually have liked to travel with someone more exotic!"
Pros: "Staff efficient and kind. Main meals good. Snacks/lunch not as inspired. Entertainment options were varied."
Cons: "Boarding was a bit of a free for all. Seats cramped."
Cons: "experience was awful. Helen Rowena Boysen"
