Pros: "Crew was very nice"
Cons: "Seat was very uncomfortable (in comparison to the other emirates flights I’ve taken), and the bathroom was very dirty (trash was full and towels were piled up on the sink)."
Cons: "Noise at the back of business Entertainment system did not work properly"
Pros: "Easy check in and comfortable flight. The crew are very helpful."
Cons: "Couldn't get my preferred isle seat or sit with my wife who was in a different row."
Pros: "The cabin crew worked hard and were extremely professional and friendly. they are to be commended for this!"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "No lounge. No notification that the lounge is closed. No compensation in a lounge replacement form just a shitty $40 voucher"
Cons: "We asked them to provide us with assistance as we had 3 infants with us but no one helped us from check in to boarding gate. Even though we called emirates customer care to afd oyr name in assistance when we booked the ticket but at airport they said we cannot privide any assistance . Moreover one of our family member had wheel chair assistance they never provided wheel chair at Dubai airport reason being they said they have shortage of wheel chairs. Such a bad experience we had !! I will never recommend anyone to travel with Emirates."
Pros: "Food, Service, entertainment"
Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "I like everything"
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Flight attendants not friendly, some downright rude and looked like they hated their jobs (bumped into seats, rushed service, visibly irritated when people would ask for assistance), my video wasn’t working properly and was told “it’s an old plane, there is nothing we can do, it will be retired soon, we can get you some you some magazines”, food was terrible."
Pros: "The in flight crew was friendly and helpful."
Cons: "The seat I have 41A is quite awkward, especially when 41B was a plus size person. The slanting profile of the wall also made it quite claustrophobic. But overall endurance."
Pros: "The AIC technology"
Cons: "We was late in departure Very baD crew Very small meals its like a snack I thought Emirates airline is the best but i changed my mind !!! Sadly"
Pros: "Spacious for the kid to walk"
Cons: "For this flight boarding was smooth as my previous flight was late and an Emirates employee ran us through security and to this flight on time. For the people reading this review who might think my kid would have been messy or cranky on the flight so we were treated this way, that was not the case, she not even cried once or made a mess. Same as my previous flight with crew, Crew were so late in responses, my wife actually walked to their place 2 times to get milk for the baby. Also she was not served food at all when they served breakfast. We requested Hindu meal and I was served hindu meal and she was missed and when they served lunch she was told she has not requested prior to the flight and can only be served a regular meal, which she gladly accepted. Kid was not served any food again, so we gave her solid from our meal. When we requested some food for the baby she was given a banana baby food(Kid did not even eat it). Taste of the food was edible(Not great). Overall do not fly emirates with a kid"
Cons: "In cochin to Dubai flight , There was no space to put my carry on baggage, I ask the crew to find the place and put it, but one of the crew said there is a place in the front but she cant take it there, I told her if it is above my seat and close to my seat I don't mind to put , some body taken my space its your responsibility to find the place and put it. then she called her supervisor and the supervisor told me the bag is heavy for her, (the bag was only 7 kg). I have to take the bag all the way to front. The crew is very lazy and too much attitude, wont fly this flight any more."
Pros: "The overall experience was good from boarding to disembark. emirates is a quality airline with affordable pricing. Planes were neat and clean cabin crew did their job at their best."
Cons: "In some instances their was a shortage of food option. Although the menu said you could have a choice but some of the choices were exhausted by the time crew served it to the half of the travellers and the rest have to eat whatever was leftover. I think Emirates should stock a bit more of the food especially on a plane like Airbus 380. Its a huge aircraft and passengers sting at the vey end had to wait almost 45 min to 1 hr to get their food and that too was whatever leftover. They should make efforts to server all the passengers within a short amount to time rather than keep them waiting for so long. Most of the time more than half of the passengers had already eaten while those sitting in the back were still waiting for their food. Its not cabin crew's inefficiency but rather a policy problem that needs to be addressed."
Cons: "Emirates checkin staff in India charging fees unnecessarily. Don’t know it is Emirates decision or Indian staff . I hate to travel again through Emirates ."
Pros: "Just done all of that already !"
Cons: "Just done all of that already !"
Cons: "The seat was not going back. Food and tea didn't come on time."
Cons: "The boarding gate space was quite small and there was no separate queue for business. So you literally had to push through people who were already in the queue to board as a business class. There was no space to go around."
Pros: "Food and crew were great"
Cons: "Entertainment was horrible...it was connected for the first 2 hours only then got disconnected for the whole flight duration...I couldn’t watch any movie, tv show, music, live tv, and the crew tried to reset the screen several times with no success, then it worked again in the last hour...I travelled on business class and paid the extra charge for better service"
Pros: "The entertainment system was really good..."
Cons: "The food was poor compared to other airlines...IE British airlines void us great"
Pros: "Polite staff and professional."
Cons: "I was asleep so I did not get my arrival card from the crew when landing in transit in Yangon"
Cons: "The food ordered was not seeved. Quality of the food needs improvement. not worth the money spent on the ticket."
Pros: "Services and attention to detail"
Cons: "N/a"
Pros: "It was ok, average."
Cons: "The reclining function of my seat was broken, smaller seats and too high air conditioning."
Pros: "Pretty uniforms and good service: Polite, gentle, helpful"
Pros: "The flight was so nice! I landed on time, the food was good. I loved it the fact that I could charge my phone, have a good amount of tv show and movies to choose from. Comfortable seats. Yep I would recommend and I would flight with Emirates airlines again"
Cons: "Delayed on an already long flight and got home even later"
Pros: "Flight was light and was comfortable"
Cons: "The flight was light. Even with that the crew seemed checked out. Did not come by to offer additional drinks or snacks. I noticed some unprofessional physical contact between few Crew members."
Pros: "Crew was very nice and responsive to my needs."
Cons: "Entertainment system was par as other airlines but earphone jack was arcane and did not allow use of my own headset which is superior to the poor quality supplied equipment. Also the interactive touchscreen was not interacting well and at some point the screen froze leaving me without the ability to continue my movie."
Cons: "Ok"
Pros: "Same as above"
Cons: "Same as above"
Pros: "Great experience would Defo use them for our next trip."
Pros: "All is good"
Pros: "All was good"
Pros: "Very courteous flight attendants. I liked the fact that they came from several countries and looked like a strong, united team. I also enjoyed the great selection of movies, music, news, and TV shows. The space between the chairs is more generous than other airlines I used in the past."
Cons: "There was a long line for boarding in Entebbe and very few staff attending the process. I did not have access to online checking, although I received the message that I can do it online. Horrible scramble eggs. I could not eat it."
Cons: "I pre-selected the Asian Veg Meal but they were out and I didn't get any meal because of that."
Pros: "Barcelona to Dubai flight - the flight attendants were personable, helpful, and very courteous. In-flight service was frequent with many stops to check on the passengers of a very full flight. Wonderful and attentive service, even when juggling such a large number of passengers. I was very impressed with the work ethic of this crew."
Cons: "The flight attendants on the Dubai to Singapore flight were surprisingly unhelpful. It was a mostly empty flight and yet during this flight, there were very infrequent beverage service. When I activated my call flight attendant button, no one stopped by. This included at least 3 different flight attendants passing me, some more than a few times, and not once did anyone stop. After waiting for 10 - 15 minutes, I turned off the light and went to the galley part of the plane, only to find a group of flight attendants socializing. I requested a drink and it was handed to me without the attendant every making eye contact as the attendant still was facing and engaged in their conversation. This is not the first time I have experienced this on an Emirates flight so I think the staff training may need to be reinforced. Business class service on Emirates is quite good. But I fly both Economy and Business class. The experiences in Economy did affect my decision on which airline I generally fly with for business class travel."
Pros: "Everything was great."
Cons: "Be sure to take your own water bottle with you on this long 14 hour flight. Both directions it seemed that the company approach to beverages was to serve as little as possible, perhaps to keep people out of the bathrooms. But the cabin air was so dry I could barely swallow at times one way drinking only what was provided, but the other way I noticed that my jet lag was greatly reduced when I carried and consumed an extra liter or two above what was provided. At one gate the security crew asked me to dump my water, but I had a small empty bottle with me that I could fill up at the spigot near the bathroom on the plane as needed."
Pros: "Leg room, seat comfort, crew, service"
Cons: "Food, stay at dubai hotel"
Cons: "Baggage took almost 2 hours to get out at return destination"
Pros: "Excellent service, food and media."
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "Not piling up people like sardines in a can."
Cons: "Food was served warm. Perhaps the menu could be better, but it wasn’t bad."
Pros: "I was fortunate the person in front didn’t lean back"
Cons: "On Swiss website I added Rehe preference for a lactose free meal — but none were on the plane. The economy seats are close enough together I needed to hold my book to the side to read."
Pros: "The crew service was very good, as was the food. The only complain is about the entertainment, hope to update the touch screen."
Cons: "The plane was SO hot and stuffy. It was an overnight flight, so they passed out blankets—but it was so hot no one used them. The air was stale, to the point of feeling claustrophobic."
Pros: "Crew was amazing"
Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing"
Cons: "They asked me to pay for my luggages. It is strange"
Cons: "They charged about $230 to convey my skis, compared to about $80 for the first bag. This is such ab unexpectedly big difference as to be a trap. Swiss Air are, in my opinion, con artists. Do not fly with them."
Cons: "Crew was excellent Seats very short on leg room and hard cushions"
Pros: "Crew were amazing."
Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "That it wasn’t a flight to denver"
Pros: "Swiss is the best"
Cons: "It was so hot in the plane and there were no air vents to keep air circulating."
Pros: "friendly crew; easy boarding; arrival on time"
Cons: "Seat not very comfortable and very little leg room"
Pros: "Crew were good, apart from forgetting at breakfast time that I had ordered gluten free food. Food was OK but not memorable."
Cons: "Business class is not as roomy as other airlines. My partner had to climb over me to reach the aisle, there is very little storage space and seat size is quite small. Choice of movies is limited."
Cons: "I paid to upgrade my seats and they were still tiny. I could not straighten my legs. The armrest also doesn’t go up all the way, so couples flying overnight together, beware!"
Cons: "Checked in online. Needed to drop my snowboard bag off. I had 2 hrs...got in the express line to drop bags with ticket. They kept taking people from every other line in front of us. Took 1 hr to drop a bag. Got through security line and told my boarding pass is no good. 30 min before flight. Back to Swiss. Have a meltdown and finally they help. Now I’m in Geneva and my bags in Zurich..."
Pros: "movies choices were good, the crew was awesome, boarding was meh, but for NBO not bad"
Cons: "paid extra for the seats with more leg room and the amount of leg room I had was concerning in terms of what a regular seat may have looked like. I'm not even that tall, but when the woman in front of me reclined, I was pinned in my seat. Luckily I'm double jointed."
Pros: "Economy very tight but whose isn’t. Best selection of movies relative to the competition."
Pros: "All staff of Swiss made you feel important."
Cons: "Everything was fine"
Pros: "Amount of times drinks, water, was served."
Cons: "The person in front of me reclined seat the whole trip. Very, very uncomfortable for me."
Cons: "Delay"
Pros: "Crew was nice."
Cons: "Cabin is old and needs updating. For the cost of the ticket, I expected better entertainment, more room, and better food."
Pros: "Was a very quick flight."
Pros: "The food was really great! And the crew was very friendly. Was pleased that everything went smoothly."
Cons: "Booked four flights from Zurich to Prague, but plans changed. No way to get a refund or cancellation although I tried two weeks beforehand. Disappointing to say the least."
Pros: "good stuff"
Cons: "HAving to walk across the Zurich airport to buy a business class upgrade was bad. I just wanted to buy the upgrade at the desk. No need to go from terminal 3 to terminal 1. total waste of 20-30 minutes. Ironic that this happens to people willing to spend $'s of dollars for convenience and comfort. should be able to purchase upgrade ASAP with a smile at check-in."
Pros: "Very pleasant and friendly attendants. Food good, you'll never feel hungry! Love the chocolates!"
Pros: "The crew was very attentive and friendly"
Cons: "The legroom was good but the seats were very narrow causing larger people to overlap the armrests"
Pros: "Comfort"
Cons: "The guy in front of me at the flight from Zurich to Newark..."
Pros: "Very accommodating"
Pros: "Friendly attendants responded to every need. Chicken with rice meal was very good."
Cons: "The sound system for movies was distorted."
Cons: "Could use some more seating space"
Pros: "I did not take this flight. I had to change my itinerary to accommodate a change in my work commitments and tried to cancel this flight but was unable."
Cons: "I am never ordering a ticket through your services again. And I will certainly advise friends and colleagues against doing so. Your customer service is execrable. This is the second time in a year that I have had to spend hours of time in an attempt to cancel a flight and have lost the full ticket cost because of all your terms and conditions and fine (=unfindable, unreadable) print. The lack of transparency regarding baggage fees is outrageous. I have had to pay hundreds of dollars in such fees after having had no such notice - and no inkling - that that would be the case. We call this a "racket" in the United States."
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: "Flight was good and comfortable"
Pros: "It's fine no comment"
Cons: "Not enough leg room"
Pros: "the Crew, the meal, the seat at the window"
Cons: "the late and the not very good Information about the late in Madrid"
Pros: "Everything was great.... The food , crew was fantastic , nice friendly stuff ! Very happy with the flights"
Cons: "Well not really! I can only say negative things is the seats but is not Swiss is all airlines !!! Zero space for your legs"
Pros: "Nothing! It was the first day of our honeymoon, and it was ruined by Swiss."
Cons: "This (attempted) flight was like living a nightmare. The aircraft had a problem with the A/C, so we sat in the extremely hot aircraft on the tarmac for 2 hours while they tried to fix the problem. Then, when we were finally told that the aircraft could not fly, the Swiss staff said that we were "not allowed" to leave the aircraft. After stressed passengers confronted the crew demanding to be let off the aircraft, we went back into the terminal to wait for hours in line as just two Swiss staff filled out hotel vouchers by hand for over 200 passengers. Adding insult to injury, we were then told to wait for a hotel shuttle at the curb, despite the fact that the shuttle had stopped running hours earlier at midnight. I didn't fly to Switzerland until the next day, losing hundreds of dollars on a missed hotel stay in Zurich, and travel plans. And it was an awful start to my honeymoon. The way the Swiss staff treated us was unconscionable and insulting. They have not responded to my several written complaints, so maybe Kayak can help!!!"
Pros: "The new 777-300 is great. besides the disorganized boarding, everything else was great!"
Cons: "I had a good seat, the plane was comfortable and the crew was nice"
Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "Communication was terrible."
Cons: "I paid extra for legroom but was in the main walkway so my feet were stepped on for the entire flight."
Pros: "The flight crew were great very friendly & service oriented as far as getting your food & water"
Cons: "My partner & I were given separate seats. We tired to reserve our seats online according to instructions & time but the online registration wasn't working properly. We had to wait til we were at the airport to do that. When checking in we were told we had to wait til onboard? Then once on board told no. So we were not able to sit together & weren't even in the same area of the plane. We also had an old plane & seats very uncomfortable. The movie screen was barely visible so basically u could just listen."
Pros: "1. The crew was very friendly and polite. 2. The food was good. 3. Service was good."
Cons: "The flight is long. It will be good to have an area in the plane for some physical exercises. Sitting motionless during long time is not healthy for everybody."
Cons: "We didn't had entertainment"
Pros: "Comfortable business class"
Cons: "Food was not too great"

maintenance delays

Pros: "Fine flight, nice Attendants (albeit a bit unresponsive)"
Cons: "My internet and television did not work. It’s really the main reason I fly with JetBlue for the internet in television s my screen was even fuzzy, and the movies didn’t work at all. My previous flight had the same issue and we were promised a voucher. I’d like the same for this flight please."
Pros: "Great crew. Seamless entry."
Cons: "N/A"
Pros: "Captain came out and was direct and friendly with passengers about reasons for delay"
Cons: "2.5 hour delay. 3 out of my last 4 Jetblue flights have been delayed and arrived late. Not okay."
Pros: "Yes"
Cons: "Free earphones for the TV"
Pros: "Seats ok. Crew was great!"
Pros: "Great crew. Comfortable seats. Lots of leg room."
Cons: "I don’t think the internet worked. I tried everything on my phone and computer."
Pros: "Smooth ride great service"
Pros: "Easy Direct Flight. Nice Crew and Good Captain."
Cons: "Flight Delay and Change of Gate"
Cons: "Over 3 hours of delays. Didn’t get in till 1 am"
Pros: "Great crew, live TV and a very smooth flight when we left Fort Lauderdale."
Cons: "They should have communicated earlier to fliers about a possible 2 hour delay. Due to an unforeseen accident on the highway, i was unable to go and park at an already booked and paid off-site parking facility so I ended up parking at the airport only to learn that the flight was delayed after 30 mins or so at the airport. I was not happy."
Pros: "Costumer Service at RDU was helpful and friendly, very different from costumer service at BOS"
Cons: "Costumer service at BOS didn’t do anything to help me locate my bags or to make my flight less stressful. They actually said to me that it wasn’t their problem that my baggage was lost, but that LATAM lose it and that they wouldn’t do anything about it."
Pros: "On time. Courteous staff."
Pros: "Unimpressed!! Flight delayed for 2 hours and lost my bags. 2 days later, my bag has not arrived. Apparently it is on the way. Not sure when it will get here."
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "Flight was delayed 2 hours and I never received notification. I got to the airport for a 4:10 flight to find out it was delayed until 6:15 and we didn’t board until after 6:30. Poor communication to passengers. Once on the plane the headphone jack didn’t work because something was lodged inside of it."
Cons: "Long lines for security clearance."
Pros: "comfortable seating space."
Pros: "Short inexpensive flight, and the TVs worked this time so that was a good pass time"
Pros: "The crew was courteous and friendly and did a good job of arriving at the destination on time."
Cons: "The flight left the gate 30 minutes late, but there was no notice of the delay beforehand. It's always nice to be notified if I'm going to be delayed and what the reason is behind the delay. Being left in the dark about delays is always discouraging...whether I'm at the doctor's office or at the airport. That being said, the crew hustled and got us to the gate for an on time arrival."
Pros: "movies and music were ok"
Cons: "Takeoff was delayed by a connection from Philly. We were supposed to arrive at 11:00 pm got there at 12:30 am. Luggage was put on a different plane and didn't arrive at RDU until 1:30 am."
Pros: "On-Time, friendly staff. Helpful staff via phone contact to change flight due to weather."
Cons: "App wouldn't let me access new boarding pass after change"
Pros: "Very good flight, Love the size of plane and the comfortable seat, the TV's on the back of the seats were great."
Pros: "Free WiFi."
Cons: "Over 2 hours delayed due to issues such as refueling and then Captains oxygen mask being faulty and the part not being on hand to swap out faulty equipment. Flight attendants and captain we're very nice but not having back-ups or parts that could fail readily available just seems like a huge inconvenience to everyone, crew and passengers. If company budget is more important than customer service perhaps re-evaluating your company model needs to be in consideration."
Pros: "Crew was very pleasant and helpful"
Cons: "Delayed flight and confusion trying to board the plane"
Pros: "Crew and flights are very good"
Cons: "our Baggage is mishandled and some of the items inside are damaged and lost couple checked in baggage"
Cons: "Flight delayed and changed gate"
Pros: "The departure and arrival times were accurate. Actually we arrived about 15 minutes early."
Cons: "There was only one individual checking people boarding. Two individuals at the boarding gate would have been even more efficient."
Pros: "No one knew I was deaf as crew knew on way to NY. Not sure why this happened."
Cons: "I am deaf. Ticket going to NY stated deaf and this return said nothing on it. Plane had no air, just heat. Steward was excellent during flight and kept offering front of plane water. Very unpleasant. Poor guy was sweating serving drinks/food. He was a gem."
Pros: "WIFI and condition of the aircraft"
Cons: "None"
Cons: "they did not communicate with their partner emirates making it hard to change flights- emirates ended up doing all the work to get my flight changed"
Pros: "Short flight. No entertainment and just snacks."
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Boarding quickly"
Cons: "Lack of food and entertainment."
Pros: "water dripping on me crew said for $45 I could move"
Pros: "I liked that the flight was short"
Cons: "I did not like the impatient crew member and his exasperated tone of voice when he told me "that overhead compartment is full so you nwed to use one that isn't full." Not everyone is a frequent flier and knows 100% proper plane ettiquette. And we ALL get tired on the job. Either suck it up or find a job where your mouth stays shut!!"
Pros: "the amenities - the TV, the snacks, the drinks (a full can of seltzer instead of a cup!) and actual flight attendants who chat with you and are positive overall. rare in flights these days! excellent experience."
Pros: "Good crew... smooth flight."
Cons: "Flight left almost an hour late."
Pros: "Staff on ground were extremely helpful and friendly. Baggage drop-off and check-in kiosk were expertly staffed."
Cons: "In-flight screen never goes blank. Need an off setting instead of constantly changing commercials."
Pros: "Large space"
Cons: "Old plan"
Pros: "Jet blue seat and leg room and entertainment options made the flight a good experience."
Pros: "Kind crew member."
Cons: "Security check was too slow."
Pros: "snacks, friendly staff"
Cons: "Our bags did not make the transfer, but helpful JetBlue staff at RDU. Have not gotten status update yet for luggage delivery even though plane should have arrived an hour ago. Boston airport security by gates E and C (when transfering from international flight after customs) very inefficient and also understaffed."
Cons: "Wouldn't let passengers spread out after boarding closed even though there were empty seats"
Cons: "the seats felt like stone"
Pros: "price"
Cons: "I landed at 8 pm from Reykjavik and had to wait until morning to connect. Trying to sleep in Terminal 5 is troublesome. I came home having been awake for two days straight and was sick for four days."
Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing to mention"
Pros: "Great entertainment."
Cons: "Delayed, rough flight."
Pros: "Was great"
Cons: "Delayed"
Cons: "The stewardess left a cabin open, the captain didn't allow us to get out of our seats nearly the whole flight."

Boarded, departed and arrived early. Perfectly comfortable for an economy flight and spare seats allowed us to spread a bit. Decent food and plenty of drinks to keep us going. Excellent in flight entertainment system. Friendly and helpful staff. We were not able to check-in online, so had to do this at the airport, not long before the flight. Assume this was why our family of 4 was not seated together. It is rather frustrating to be sent a link to to check-in and then be denied without any explanation.

5 hour delay on the runway

Pros: "The service and patience"
Cons: "Everything was great"
Pros: "People were friendly. Flight was comfortable."
Cons: "Staff incorrectly assessed documents needed for visas, and told us we were incomplete and needed to return home. Instead of looking up policy, we were denied boarding mid-flight, missed a wedding, and had to spend three days in London instead of our destination. Also, we got bug bites during the flight that turned out to be from bed bugs, which followed us home and caused much frustration for months."
Pros: "Crew are always top notch, free drinks are readily available and entertainment system is great."
Cons: "The food portions and quality have definitely declined over the years sadly, as carriers cut costs no doubt."
Pros: "This is the way to fly long haul."
Cons: "Frustration is it is impossible to sleep during the breakfast service, but this is a problem for all airlines and Virgin is better than most."
Pros: "I travelled on economy delight, flight was fully packed, yet it felt spacious and comfortable. Lightning was great. Food was yummy! And pilots gave us updates on air travel, and if there were any delays etc."
Cons: "Nothing. Had a great trip!"
Pros: "It was a great flight!"
Cons: "nothing, pretty much perfect!"
Pros: "Although there were delays they kept us informed on a regular basis as to what to expect and seemed genuinely apologetic for any inconveniences. Boarding and deplaning were smooth and efficient. I really appreciated that there was no charge for checking a bag. I am certain that contributes to the ease of everyone getting on and off the plane. Our bags arrived at baggage claim about the same time we got there. I would definitely fly with Virgin Atlantic again."
Pros: "Very friendly crew. The meals are good, nice variety. Hot food is hot."
Cons: "Seats are not the most comfortable and sometimes the screen on the entertainment tv doesn't work that easily."
Pros: "Speedy boarding and good locker space"
Cons: "Lack of room in seat especially with seat in front reclined."
Pros: "Crew was great!"
Cons: "The scone and roll were blah and dry - and so much bread in one meal!!! My seat charger didn’t work :("
Pros: "Great crew. Very kind and efficient."
Cons: "American carriers seem to enjoy poor seat ergonomics."
Pros: "Crew was attentive."
Cons: "Tiny, uncomfortable seats with warn cushions."
Pros: "Crew was great. Flight was on time and crew helped the boarding process go smoothly. It was nice to get a beer or wine at no additional cost."
Cons: "Seat was shockingly small, even for economy class. TV was poor quality."
Pros: "Amenities"
Cons: "Bed was incredibly uncomfortable in first class. It was like sleeping on the floor. People talking loudly in the bar late into the night, which made it even harder to sleep. Didn’t sleep a wink on this 10 hour flight."
Pros: "The food was okay"
Cons: "The gate was Jane without announcement"
Cons: "luggage never made it to Boston? Don't know who's fault it was.Problem was corrected."
Cons: "Incredibly uncomfortable, not enough minimum space to fit my knees behind seat in front when front passenger reclined. 6 hours is too long to have a metal rod sticking straight into your knee caps. Shoulders were squished between other passengers and had to sit twisted the whole way and Im not a large person, but am 6ft. Cabin crew impolite and unhelpful. Food was awful and made my friend sick."
Cons: "Staff"
Cons: "I never expect airline food to be any good but I’m always hoping it’s edible. This was not the case, as the egg breakfast made me physically ill."
Pros: "Service"
Cons: "Seats in economy are way to small and very uncomfortable if tall. Too close to the seats in front of you. I was miserable all the way to London."
Pros: "The flight was a good flight overall. I was able to relax on the flight because I had the option of paying for a seat with more leg space. The cabin crew was pleasant and quite helpful"
Cons: "I didn’t like the fact that I had to pay for extra leg space. I’ve travelled with other airlines and had to option to choose my seat without any additional charge"
Pros: "in flight experience is above average"
Cons: "The computer system really needs a lot of improvement. We were checking in with our infant daughter and it took 50 minutes to check in with a senior person helping the check in person and phone calls to their technical assistance. We were told an infant is difficult in their system, and our dual national daughter was another layer of complication."
Pros: "We really enjoyed flying with Virgin and so made sure we booked into a Virgin flight for this trip and not delta. The food was good, entertainment good when it worked."
Cons: "We got told that our flight number had changed from VS103 to VS4049 but still a Virgin flight. Only when we checked in we found out we were now flying with Delta and number was now DL285. Was not happy as wanted to fly with Virgin.The seats were ok but the entertainment system went down mid film. Took an hour to get started again. The games didn't work. Staff were a bit grumpy."
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."
Pros: "Entertainment selection Cabin Service associates were very good WiFi service available"
Cons: "The planes are old and tired, new 787s on this route are long overdue. Thomson's premium service is an improved offering over Virgin and offers more inclusive extras such as lounge access. There is no wonder wall on the 747 only a wonder "basket" If you are flying from Gatwick, upgrading to premium isn't worth it. Go to upper class or fly with another airline. Check in was quicker for Economy passengers and it proved a challenge to work past the economy passengers during boarding to get to the premium agent."
Pros: "Everything went very fast and smooth. I didn't have to queue for the boarding. The Sita were very comfortable, the crew very friendly and halepful and the selection of the movies A+."
Pros: "Efficient service"
Cons: "Entertainment screens were of poor quality"
Pros: "The staff was so helpful and upbeat and somehow they stayed that way the whole 8 hour flight. This was economy btw! More good things: Comfy seat, personal entertainment screen, really nice food. One free checked bag, bathroom was bigger, (it may have been a handicapped bathroom)."
Cons: "Nothing was a problem at all. (I saved "excellent" for the things I really wanted to emphasize)"
Pros: "Great seat. I did the upgrade and it was so comfortable ...good food."
Cons: "They closed the shades immediately when we took off. Creepy"
Pros: "Plenty of snacks and great service, with comfy seats"
Cons: "My luggage did not make it to destination :("
Pros: "Friendly, helpful, efficient staff on the ground & in the air. Great selection of movies, tv, music for each person flying. Comfortable flight. Great beverage & food choices."
Pros: "Great service outstanding staff"
Cons: "Entertainment package needs to better emirates and qatar could be taken as examoles Delay un take iff 3 times now in last 12 months"
Pros: "Great direct flight. Quit on the plane. Plenty of time to rest and sleep"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "From check in to landing in London, the gracious, helpful crew impressed us with their attitude and service"
Cons: "Sound didn't work on some of the entertainment choices"
Pros: "Nothing - except the toilets with tabs for lifting the seat & adjustable headrest. They forgot to load our toiletries overnight pack too!"
Cons: "The 787 has vastly inadequate Economy toilets - ONLY 4! For 200 passengers. Inadequate lighting for,boarding, unable to activate reading lights until AFTER TAKEOFF = groping in semi darkness, BAD! No window blinds = woken up by blazing sun in middle of 11 hr night flight, even with sleeping pills my sleep was wrecked, even with eyemask. Passengers penned in on narrow aisles by trolleys, unable to walk around plane & risk of DVT. Passengers disempowered by restricted space, lighting, mobility. I want more control over my personal mobility &, lighting. Horrible headsets (bring my own). This flight departed 2.5 HRs LATE from JHB & the crew & cavin service was SLOW. NO requested second cup of tea brought - I waited 20 mins & climbed over trolleys to get another one, even though it was requested of cabin crew. Do they just ignore us? Or forget?"
Pros: "airline staff was helpful, friendly and accommodating from ticket check in to flight staff."
Pros: "The food was surprisingly ok and the seats in PE were comfortable, plus there were two USB ports, perfect!"
Cons: "Being woken up to be asked if I wanted to eat, twice! If I wanted to eat, I wouldn't have a sleeping mask on my face, or be asleep! Plus, upper class and premium economy didn't board first."
Cons: "You lost our luggage. We were able to pick up our luggage after the Sydney flight, but they never made it to Minneapolis. What I don't understand is why we were not able to get boarding passes and seat assignments when we did our check-in in Sydney? Why is that so hard? Also, when we were getting our boarding pass in LAX it was so confusing when it asked for checked bags. Our bags were already on a belt going to who knows where - were we supposed to check "yes"? If we had a boarding pass this would not have been an issue."
Pros: "The crew"
Cons: "Food"
Pros: "Smiling and helpful staff Great FREE food and drinks good movies Free goodie bag of travel goods, blanket, pillow etc Free candy for landing descent"
Cons: "Leg room is a little tight"
Pros: "Virgin Atlantic had a very attractive decor.Food was great& staff as well. Polite and professional ."
Cons: "The seat I had was a bit snug leg wise and recline wise. Could not get comfortable at all."
Cons: "Never seen an international flight charges checked in luggage $130 US dollars a piece"
Pros: "Flight was on the emptier side, so my boyfriend and I each got our own entire rows to lay down and sleep the entire flight. Which was great, since I had just spent 6h vomiting from bali belly on the previous flight. Liked that they accommodated my GF meal."
Pros: "Dont whish to comment unless a human being can contact me and help me get the $200 travel voucher I was promised. It was so stressful its the least that can be done"
Cons: "the seats are not as comfortable as those on new planes"
Pros: "The vegetarian meals, leg room and comfortable seats, wifi tv entertainment, kind and courteous service. It made the trip more comfortable! Thanks!"
Cons: "The domestic flight in PNG was cramped, but the flight attendant was very nice and helpful"
Pros: "Flight was on time .. Friendly crew. Good entertainment system"
Cons: "Seats uncomfortable and leg room very tight . Didn't sleep well."
Pros: "The crew."
Cons: "No wifi was absolutely aggravating. Seat space was bad as well - very little leg room."
Cons: "Very good"
Pros: "Fast/ efficient"
Cons: "The little plane is always brutal. I'm not a small guy and sat next to an offensive lineman. It was tight for sure!"
Cons: "I adore delta! Great airline, I fly delta whenever possible"
Pros: "Crew professionalism."
Cons: "The flight scheduled was 1 hour 30 minutes late"
Pros: "Crew was great. Paris to RDU flight is very convenient. Fair summer pricing overall for our special itinerary. Beverages, snacks on international flight were great."
Cons: "Specialty food requested - reduced sugar because there is just too much sugar in airline food generally. Pretty awful. Some kind of (I think) pickled cabbage and carrots slaw was inedible. Plain yogurt was awful, needed something! Nuts, just a little bit of dried fruit would help."
Pros: "They didn’t want to help"
Cons: "They were delayed. They wouldn't let us keep our checked sized bags which slowed us down even more. Our next flight left without us while we were waiting for a gate to open so we could get off the plane. There were no more flights so we had to fly to an alternate city and rent a car to get home."
Pros: "The crew was some of the best I’ve ever had."
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Everything about delta"
Cons: "Value for the price."
Pros: "Comfortable"
Cons: "The crew"
Cons: "Please reduce your delays - again we took off with more than an hour delay and by definition you are responsible of that disagreement, you are the company I am paying for the service...."
Pros: "Boarding process was smooth."
Cons: "In flight service was disappointing."
Pros: "Smooth flight."
Cons: "Tight seat. Small space."
Cons: "N/A"
Pros: "Good service this morning"
Cons: "All good"
Pros: "Very good check in and customs, etc at both airports especially RDU."
Cons: "Only fair to good in flight service."
Pros: "Crew was great"
Cons: "Absolutely no entertainment for a flight that had way more people than my first one. Food options were horrible!"
Pros: "The airline staff ladies were so wonderful. They were super friendly, efficient, thorough, assited the elderly on the flight, and continuously cleaned the cabin. they helped people organize the bags in overhead ducts and always had a smile. They should be the standard for service on all flights. Excellent job."
Pros: "Crew"
Cons: "Food, cramped seating."
Pros: "The crew was nice and did the best they could"
Cons: "The flight was late, extremely turbulent, and was spent mostly under 10k feet, so wifi was available for only a very short time"
Pros: "Crews were great."
Cons: "Flight delays coming and going. Happens a lot with Delta."
Cons: "Flight delayed by 2 hours- was just sitting in the plane for couple hours before it took away"
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Almost everything. The flight boarded late but quickly. We sat on the runway for hours. We were VERY delayed for RDU arrival. Luggage was slow in getting to baggage claim. Not enough help with baggage was available."
Pros: "Plane was on time."
Cons: "My seat assignment was in the last row of the plan when the plane was not full"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "The fact my flight was delayed three times...First delta said it was technical(mechanical) issues then sis it was the weather then said it was mechanical issues due to the weather. There were no compensation of the inconvenience it cause the customers."
Pros: "The woman who helped us at the desk by the gate was possibly the single most helpful, kind Delta employee I’ve ever met. She wheeled me down the jetway and upgraded our seats. I wish I knew her name. She has very curly dark blonde hair and is petite."
Pros: "Everything was delightful on Delta’s side. Very comfortable. Great service."
Cons: "Why do parents with infants choose to sit in First Class. Crying babies are not appreciated when I’ve paid a lot of money for a First Class experience. The parents in the sears behind me had a child who cried & cried. It was a real spoiler for me. I enjoyed eveeeythinf about the First Class experience except that."
Pros: "Nice flight attendant. The woman who checked in my dog and my bag was really nice too. On time, efficient, and clean."
Pros: "My wife’s and my headphone connections would not work."
Pros: "The staff was incredible the plane was great. right on time"
Pros: "On time departure and arrival"
Cons: "We landed at 2:14 p.m. but did not get our luggage until 3:38 p.m., with "priority" because we were traveling business class. Dozens of bags that were not "priority" preceded ours."
Pros: "Wonderful"
Cons: "Flight crew"
Cons: "The flight was delayed just as we were about to board at 5:30. There was a mechanical problem and we were changed to another plane and another gate, which was supposed to take off at 6:30. It was boarded and ready to go around 7:00. Then....we taxied down the runway only to stop because of a situation on THIS plane (a light that did not go off). It was fixed pretty quickly and meanwhile a rep. from Delta boarded the plane, apologizing for our inconvenience and handed out Jolly Ranchers. REALLY? After that, she and the flight attendants did give us a free drink/headset coupon. That would have been nice but it expires Dec. 2017 and the flight attendant stopped serving drinks about half way down the aisle because the flight was so short. The coupon will be of no use to me. I finally got to Raleigh about 9:30...I booked the flight so I wouldn't have to drive at night.. Sigh....Delta used to be my favorite airline."
Pros: "Staff were great.. landed smoothly"
Pros: "Wheeler chair service is available"
Cons: "Gate changed in the last minute and non-English speaking wheeler chair customer (my 89 years old mother) was left at the old gate by their wheeler chair services and no agent at the gate knew about her. Both round trip flights! This is totally NOT acceptable. She could have been lost and with no ability to help herself and miss the flights. It was lucky that she found Chinese speaking customers to help her."
Pros: "Flight attendant had nice attitude."
Cons: "I asked for an aisle seat to provide relief to my right leg. I was given an aisle on my left. This was compounded by sitting next to a man so large that part of my space was taken, and this was Delta Comfort. Had I been given the requested seat, I would not have the sore neck and back I now have from leaning for 2 hours."
Pros: "Pilot almost barrel-rolled us climbing out of JFK, so if started well enough.... Ground assistance (wheel chair) left me with a badly bruised left big toe and I didn't think we'd ever get through the TSA. The pat-down I received was more like a sexual assault and I didn't even get a happy ending. We made it to RDU, so the exercise was a success, but it was a huge hassle."
Cons: "After reading the good things, you need more bad?"
Pros: "The only positive of this leg is that it was less infuriating than the flight from RDU to Boston"
Cons: "Delta's partnership with Go Jet seriously compromises the legacy carrier's reputation. I am a Delta fan - although flexible enough to use other choices when necessary. I will no longer fly a Go Jet operated leg when other choices are available. For my trips to Boston, that means Jet Blue. Sorry Delta. I'll see you back on a true Delta route."
Pros: "The flight was quick, safe, and the crew was courteous and attentive."
Cons: "Nothing."
Cons: "delayed 2+ hours due to runway maintenance. You'd think those things would be better planned..."
Cons: "If you have to swap out planes, do it at night, not the morning of the flight! And tell the customers in advance, so they can get some sleep instead of hurrying to the airport for an "on time" flight that couldn't be flown because of an equipment problem."
Pros: "The food has REALLY improved!! GREAT CREW!"
Pros: "Crew aware of my children's nut allergy and chose not to serve"
Cons: "Coffee horrible"
Pros: "absolutely nothing"
Cons: "no food while waiting flight cancelled and no vendors open in the airport, stood in line for 4 hours only to be told no flights available, wasn't asked if they could feed me, put me up in a hotel, absolutely no compensation for me not being able to see my son graduate in the Air Force."
Pros: "Everything was decent, good entertainment, nice crew, etc."
Cons: "Nothing was bad."
Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "Reservation. Checkin. Seating. Flight."
Pros: "Everything was great! It is however a mystery why the attendants find it hard to smile once in a while. They were all attentive which is more important than serving with a smile."
Cons: "Cramped, uncomfortable tin can of an airplane. Barely tolerable for even an hour’s flight."
