Staff need to be trained on how to talk to passengers. Half the staff would frown at the smallest of requests. In short I wouldn't have taken the flight if I knew the quality of service that was on my eay
On Monday September 11th I flew from Stockholm Arlanda to JFK on Norwegian flight DY7005. I was seated in 3J in the premium cabin.
The couple in front of me began drinking excessively as soon as the aircraft reached cruising altitude. They were served by a flight attendant (who I then found out was the crew supervisor) called Vinnie, who served them doubles of vodka, cognac and bailey's, smiling and laughing with the passengers and giving them high fives.
About 4 hours into the flight, the passenger in seat 2J turned around in his seat and began to harrass me. He claimed that we had friends in common and worked in the same industry and that we should work together. I remained polite and indicated that now was probably not the best time but that we should discuss it at a later date. Please note that I had never seen this man before in my life. I was working on my computer and put my headphones back on. He then began to shout and swear at me, saying that I disrespected him, I assume by not engaging him in conversation. He threatened me and at one point tried to swing at me from his seat. His partner then tried to calm him down.
A flight attendant that was passing at the time (middle aged black woman) said something to the effect of "I don't know if YOU GUYS are from New York but you all need to calm down", somehow assuming that I was in collusion with this other passenger. I said to the lady "miss I don't know this man" but she ignored me and kept on walking.
After this initial incident and seeing that the in flight staff were not interested in addressing this man's behavior, I put on my headphones and sunglasses and pretended to sleep. I could hear him issuing threats and swearing loudly. This went on for about 30 to 45 minutes (I was listening to a podcast and could hear him over the commentary) and then he again turned around in his seat and tried to touch me.
At this point I panicked and grabbed my items and headed for the galley. I noticed that the lady in the seat next to me had vacated her seat and was having a concerned conversation with one of the flight attendants. I asked for the purser and a younger black fight attendant told me that "he was resting". I told her to get him and she turned to her counterpart and said "he's pissed off" as if I was over reacting to some sort of minor situation.
The purser (Vinnie, who had been serving up doubles and high fives) arrived and told me that it was unlimited drinks in the premium cabin and there was nothing that he could do about that, and that they had cut him off after he started antagonizing me. I asked why it was that he would knowingly supply a passenger with over ten drinks, jeopardizing the wellbeing of other passengers, and he again responded that it was unlimited drinks in the premium cabin. The younger female flight attendant then told me that the cops would be waiting for the passenger on arrival - when in fact, the port police department was never notified, nor was the Norwegian
The entertaiment was fine and the crew were polite
1,The food was bad. I was unable to eat. Simple food would have worked. I chose fish but hardly ate since it tasted bad. Additionally I am allergic to diary products and was not given a chance to express this when purchasing the ticket so I arrived in Rome extremely hungry. I ate at the airport on arrival in Rome,
2, There was no toiletries bag handed out i.e toothpaste and socks to keep us warm.
3. Was surprised that the food was on sale Brussels to Rome. Abidjan to Brussels was free food then mid flight rules changed and the food was on sale on the last leg of the flight.
bad customer service. No reliable information about the flight. How someone who never took an airplane can know that you have to get a visa when going to canada. If your ticket says your last destination is us. And i did not even got a full refund for their stupid mistake. Lack of information. You guys should be more careless for your customers.
Itinerary was Boston to Manchester on Thomas Cook Airlines, and Manchester to Munich on Lufthansa. Computer system was down for Thomas Cook. 300 passengers checked in with hand-written boarding passes. Poor communication between airline and passengers. Delayed departure. Arrived in Manchester at 5:55am, an hour late. Misinformation in Manchester about what would happen with our checked bags. We were directed to transfers, only to find out that the hand-written bag tags were not accepted by transfers and we had to exit transfers to claim the bags. This delay caused me to miss my 7:25am connection to Munich. Better information and communication would have allowed me to make the flight. Was rebooked for 10:50am flight but at gate found out it was oversold, I had no "priority" because it was a rebooking, and my seat was given away to another passenger. I was then rebooked for 17:55 flight. I was told that my checked bag would be on it. At the gate for this later flight, I asked about my checked bag but was given no information, and the staff was not helpful in confirming my bag would be loaded. After a 12 hour layover in Manchester (should have been 2 hours), I boarded the 17:55 flight. I arrived in Munich and of course my bag did not make the flight. Effectively I lost a day on my trip, and this was a terrible experience. Flying multiple airlines on a single trip can really be awful if there is rebooking involved, as they don't work together, and neither treats you like a paying customer. I also would advise against flying Thomas Cook. Their computer system going down is inexcusable, and created a massive headache for not just me, but many passengers who missed connections.
