Cons: "The entre food top was torn, apparently opened before I got it, also there was no salad dressing. ATTN RICHARD BRANSON: Are you concerned for our environment? The head stewardess would not refill my sports water bottle after I asked her nicely, instead she poured water into a cup which she threw away, wasting plastic unnecessarily. I told her I did not like wasting plastic and she appeared to not enjoy what I had to say. This was the same lady who handed me my dinner. Rest of crew was great."

Pros: "Professional Cabin Crew Excellent "vera" entertainment"
Cons: "Chaotic boarding procedure in Cancun airport, although I accept that this is more of an issue with airport layout Removal of some of the "Virgin Atlantic" benefits such as free sports equipment will make me rethink my carrier of choice from next year. The 747 fleet is starting to feel old - when are the dream liners coming?"
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: "Let's see, my connecting flight was delayed. I missed my Sydney flight so they put me ona flight to Brisbane which was actually pretty great. Then, oh then they lose my bag. Two days later I guess is an appropriate time to then put it on the next flight? What? My bag is 20 pounds, smaller than a standard sized Dachshund. And low and behold they said I can spend up to $50 on necessities. Too kind, virgin Australia, too kind."
Pros: "The plane was very nice with great lighting. More food would have been nice as it was a long flight The crew were variable - most very helpful but one or two not so much"

Cons: "After checking in my wife and I were in separate seats. I was then unable to change my seat after check in. After calling the helpline I was informed that it is impossible to change the seat after checking in until I am at the airport. No other airline has such an obscure, in efficient rule. Virgin takes pride in being a step above their competition - I didn't see it. I have flown international on Delta, American Airlines, British Airlines, United, and others and any difference in the experience was negligible."
Pros: "Flight staff exceptionally friendly and helpful"
Cons: "More leg room always appreciated"
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."

Pros: "The Virgin Atlantic Club was nice. The special security line was a bonus."
Cons: "Selection of onboard movies not very good. The crew was not so friendly. Menu could be more varied. The A340 configuration is not so good for Business class. Staring at other people across the aisle is not so nice."
Pros: "No queues on check in, security nor on arrival. New plane, touch screens, usual abundance of films and food. More drink rounds than last trip. Wifi if you want it."
Cons: "cabin crew very perfunctory. No apology for screen needing resets ( sorry about that would do). Ok but no smiles or personal interaction"
Pros: "The food has improved."
Cons: "Flight turned back after an hour. Held in HK for 24 hours. Dreamliner no big sea change in air transport. Economy still uncomfortable and cramped. Crew give the impression of being bossy and aloof, I saw them making faces behind someone's back. Emirates crew are so much more helpful and pleasant."
Cons: "Delayed boarding"
Pros: "It was a smooth flight"
Cons: "More seat room"
Pros: "The in-flight entertainment was awesome. I was able to watch NFL games the entire flight which made the flight go by super quick. Our flight was also ahead of schedule which was great as well."

Pros: "The agent at the bag drop was very helpful. We had two reservations and she took the extra step to call someone and helped check our luggage all the way to destination. Thanks for the wonderful service. Flight attendants were all smiling and very friendly. A very special treat that we got two snacks each which were very much appreciated as it was an early morning flight and we didn't get a chance to get breakfasts."
Pros: "I liked that is was a short flight"
Cons: "Plan was old. Seats not comfortable. Plane not clean. Flight attendants not attentive. A lady stored her carry-on on the floor in front of her and she was in the emergency row! Attendant walked by before takeoff and said nothing! Really?!"

Cons: "I’m not a seasoned traveler and packed some needed items for our home out-of-state in an oversized bag. That bag ended up costing me $200 extra at check-in. I could’ve Fed-ex’d for cheaper or put into two separate bags for cheaper. Then, my flight was delayed an hour."

Pros: "The crew were fantastic and tried their best the delay."
Cons: "Delayed flight. 2 hours delay. Had to rebook a connecting flight and hence was very tight to board the next flight"

Cons: "Lack of food/snack choices. Seem like a shortage on ice."
Pros: "Crew was fantastic and very helpful."
Cons: "Not sure who was in charge of loading the plane with food for purchase, but they forgot it all entirely. The crew was kind enough to give extra snacks. Kinda curious how you forgot to load a plane with food for purchase and how did the crew not notice in advance? I would think that is one of their checks of the cabin. Not mention who ever signed off saying they filled the plane with food for purchase lied. Very frustrating not only for the crew but for the passengers."
Cons: "Gate agent @ LAX calling every single passenger with a lot of noise around couldn't hear. I had to go and check myself a couple of times."

Pros: "EXCELLENT, FRIENDLY, TIMELY, CORDIAL Service by Flight attendants!!"
Pros: "Smooth travel and good service."
Cons: "Bad boarding area in SLC."

Cons: "Dutch sub titels on fims would be good"
Cons: "Due to the earthquakes, the film festival I was going to was cancelled. Ten days prior to the flight I called AeroMexico to cancel and they said there would be a cancellation penalty, which was fine. When I tried to redeem my credit, they said there was also an additional "No-show fee" even though I called to cancel 10 days prior, which left a total of $70 credit after all their penalties. I called and emailed to complain but they did nothing but pass me to someone else who was equally unhelpful. I will never fly AeroMexico for any reason in the future."

Cons: "My seating. Location. We checked in 22 hrs before the flight and received C4 c5"

Pros: "Confort and kindness"
Cons: "It was too cold"
Cons: "A little bit chaotic when they loaded two planes at the same time in a very tight space in Amsterdsm but this was most likey an airport soecific design issue and not a KLM issue. The flight was as good as can be expected fir an international flight. The staff was great"

Pros: "We got a meal for a 1h flight only"
Cons: "No entertainment but normal for this type of flight"
Pros: "Bording was good and general flight ok"

Cons: "Missing wheel chairs swrvice lounge far away no food option just lame klm tipique"
Pros: "I personally do not appreciate the food on this leg of the journey Food Ams to Dxb is GOOD!!"

Furthermore, the entertainment on board is great! Nice movies, nice food, friendly flight attendants, etc. They even offered me a second sandwich =)! I truly loved my experience with KLM."
Pros: "newer plane, good staff"
Cons: "need better and more food options, more often"
Cons: "Per usual, KLM can't seem to figure out the order of boarding the plane. Should be business - priority - everyone else. Instead they do priority first, and that's usually two-thirds of the passengers. Strange choice of in-flight movies; no accounting for taste, I guess."
Cons: "OLD OLD plane with hard seats and tiny screens"
Pros: "The crew were just amazing, such lovely male stewards! They were helpful and friendly and generally wonderful."
Cons: "The entertainment was quite dated and didn't have new movies etc"

Pros: "Free wee cake."
Cons: "Nothing in particular."
Pros: "Night flight so no entertainment allowed sleeping"
Cons: "Kosher food could be improved"
Pros: "Comfortable flight to Amsterdam for vacation in UK. More meals than expected. Also wasn't expecting some of the comforts offered to "regular" class seats like eye masks, ear plugs, pillows and blankets. It was an overnight flight, so maybe that should have been expected, but I don't think we had those 4 years ago when traveling overseas."
Cons: "Nothing. This is filler text to meet min characters."
Pros: "It was a short flight so it was O.K."
Cons: "Boarding was odd. Go to airport early and counters were not open, did on line check in so was able to avoid the self check in at airport. Also self check in luggage seems confusing with no ground crew to help. It didn't affect me but lots of confused passenger."
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: "With skyteam elite status cannot select free upgrade from economy to premium economy unless it is 30hrs before boarding for this code share which is actually a KLM flight"
Pros: "Special treat for King's Day Friendly crew"
Cons: "15 min late boarding 30 min delay leaving the gate Very little leg room"
Cons: "Since we had two extra bags (paid for in Chicago), they demanded to see my receipt before we could board in Amsterdam to Nairobi. We had trouble locating the receipt and we were not given an explanation as to why we needed it again. We were traveling with 5 kids including an infant and we were not allowed to board until we found the receipt. I thought surely they would have record that I had paid, but I guess not. We were the last to board and all very stressed out. The staff seemed not to care the least in our troubles."
Cons: "Completely none sense to change the time of départure (30 min earlier) with just a simple email 24h before and w/o sending a text on mobile phone."
Cons: "no food available to be purchased. we left almost 2 hours later than scheduled and were very hungry."
Pros: "Crew was great. Delayed by mechanical issue. Weather was bad in Montreal so delayed again. Mechanical issue is a pain but I'd rather not crash so all in all very good. Really windy at landing, pilots did a great job. Respect!"
Cons: "Just a heads up, if you're a large person, weight wise, you may have a challenge using the rest room. It's pretty small."
Pros: "It was all very standard- crew was nice, plenty of food"
Cons: "the system for checking bags at Paris CDG was really bad. The Kiosks to print bag tags were really hard to use - esp for older folks."
Cons: "Flight was delayed over an hour and that added to an already for a very long day. We also ended up waiting a long time while aboard. There apparently was a weight balancing issue. It took them a long time to let us know why we were sitting there. Otherwise everything was okay."
Pros: "Everything was great!! Thanks so much!!"
Cons: "I wasn’t able to choose a seat"
Pros: "Good legroom in premium economy, power outlets at all seats"
Cons: "WiFi speed was terrible"
Pros: "Good crew!"
Pros: "Yes, the crew was very good."
Cons: "It would have been nice to have coffee on the flight. All they had to offer was a snack and a glass of water."
Pros: "Crew was funny and friendly and efficient"
Cons: "I dunno if it's something WestJet rules dictate for landing, but EVERY WestJet flight I've been on, the landing into YXJ is short and very hard!! I'm NOT at all an AC fan, but AC, CMA all land longer and MUCH smoother...in all weather conditions"
Cons: "Issue handling for delay"
Pros: "Maybe not Westjets fault but one of the affiliated companies. Loading up for Cranbrook, I could over hear the baggage loaders day, “we’re overweight”. Next thing you know, 4 people are short their luggage at the final destination. Takes one day out of my vacation."
Pros: "The crew was polite and prot"
Cons: "It wasn’t free"
Pros: "Crew was awesome, very friendly"
Cons: "10 hour flight, and you pay for gross food."
Pros: "The flight itself was okay. Nothing bad to say."
Cons: "We didn't know that you need an app to watch movies on your own devices with West Jet. Y u need to download the app before you get to the airport, because the WiFi doesn't work at the airport or on the plane. I don't have data on my phone or tablet."
Cons: "Head crew person was lazy and bad attitude. The rest were very good"
Pros: "An uneventful and comfortable trip, well.. as comfortable as any aircraft gets :)"
Cons: "Food not so great Also wanted music. Was none"
Pros: "Staff were helpful and smiling. Good value"
Cons: "We needed a better choice of food"
Pros: "The low cost"
Cons: "That which comes with low cost, you get what you pay for"
Pros: "Smooth flight"
Cons: "Wheel chair services was horrible. 8 passengers needed assistance and there were 2 assistants to aid them. This took over two hours as they attended to passengers with connecting flights first. It was frustrating waiting 2hrs after the flight landed to collect luggage and leave airport."
Cons: "Can't rate food. None provided."
Pros: "Easy check in and nice crew!!!! No complaints at all!!! I would fly them again!!! I would definitely recommend them to others!"
Pros: "It is always an adventure flying into Lethbridge....maybe I should leave it at that. The crew both inside the terminal and on the flight were great, the service is great. It’s a very loud ride....if you have noise triggered headaches....I’m sorry. You’re in a flying cigar tube....up close with every other passenger and the open cockpit is a new experience....but totally fascinating too. The pilot and co-pilot are young but very compitant. The weather has a huge impact on your flight because if there is any wind you will get tossed around and the landing in Lethbridge is more of a roller coaster ride. Let me sum it up like this....if your not good with REALLY loud noise, or claustrophobic, or have any motion sickness issues.....rent a car and drive!!!"
Cons: "Don’t need to get there the 90 mins ahead as AC states is the policy, especially if you are on the 5 am flight because they aren’t. I made that mistake arriving at 3:30 am for my 5am flight and no one showed up til after 4am. It was really annoying to not know that ahead of time."
Pros: "Price was perfect."
Cons: "Airlines don't have small tv's to watch and give out cheap snacks. Flairaire is so cheap you even have to buy your beverage unless it's a glass of water. Wasn't overly impressed with this airline. Also getting your itenairy online was also difficult. I had to change email information and call customer service which was in Spanish not English language. Then while lining up at the airport to process and check bags there was no computer to self serve and get through the line up faster and efficiently. The main clerk that helps with the line up was rude to passengers. Stating that on a domestic flight you need to be 2 hours ahead of boarding. Which most of us were a good 90 minutes to pre boarding. All of the struggles can be avoided with self serve check-in and prepaid bag check. The flight and crew were friendly and pleasant."
Pros: "Arriving early."
Cons: "Uncomfortable seats."
Cons: "First flight on WestJet in 3 Years. Didn’t like not knowing I needed a tablet or laptop and an app to watch tv. Offered a drink and asked for water. Received about 2 ounces. Every body around me ordered soft drinks and got a 10 ounce can"

Cons: "Flight was delayed. Some crew members seemed aggressive while walking through the aslie Food was dry for the price"
Pros: "The attendants are nice."
Cons: "The flight was delayed for abiut 2 hrs and when we boarded the plabe the auxillary power supply tyat provides the plane with power when it's parked in the terminal was broken which meant the plane was freezing cold, where we were basically forced to sit for another 45 minutes due to some baggafe issue, before the plane finally turned on its engines and warmed up the cabin. This happened in Toronto during winter (-15 degrees Celsius).... Westjet service has been terrible."
Pros: "Actually,and sadly, not very much."
Cons: "These guys just will not take any action to seat you next to the people you would like to sit with, even if you are married to them and have been for over 30 years! No amount of asking nicely will get you any action at all. Six hour flights and you get a coffee and cookie. Flight stewardess makes you wait in the aisle behind row 3 for the bathroom - sure, just stand there and tower over some other poor traveller, don't stand right next to me - I'm a flight stewardess for goodness sakes! Having flown professionally, and for business and leisure for over 40 years I offer this advice - pick another airline - these guys do not deserve to be in the business."
Cons: "My luggage got left in toronto"
Pros: "Friendly crew."
Cons: "Delayed flight. + Even though I've ordered my meals online in advance, the crew didn't know about it and I had to end up asking for my sandwiches. They should have a list and bring the food proactively instead of waiting for you to show the order recipit."

And they lost the record of my payment, so I had to show 4 times the Amex receipt showing that I had paid before. It took 45 minutes and 4 non receptive agents for me to get my luggage checked. British Airways is significantly better."
Cons: "Delay in take off 45 min!!!!"
Pros: "The gentleman at the check out his name was Omar went over and above the call of duty for Customer Service me being an American he walked me through each step of using flybe via air France and paying for checking my bags and even the carry on luggage and getting me through security etc."
