Dreadful, overcrowded,uncomfortable seating, food is less than average,
Crew could be more attentive
It was far too cold. Had to wear my coat and use the blanket. Very unpleasant.

Pros: "Crew was great !!!"
Cons: "Seating in upper class is uncomfortable and bedding is not fresh."
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: "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: "Not crowded. Crew was good."
Cons: "Not taking a bus to board the plane."
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: "There is no entertainment, not really required on a short flight but nice when offered."
Cons: "They have to uptade the airplanes"
Pros: "Food was great. Friendly stas staff."
Cons: "LAX AIRPORT signage leaves something to be desired. Nothing to do with airline."
Pros: "Movies. Meals. Wine. Freq"
Pros: "Staff was very friendly, the plane was very clean. Loved the entire trip, except for our uncontrollable weather delay."
Pros: "We paid extra for exit row seats so we had good leg space"
Cons: "The seats are so small that only your backside fits on it and we are not big people. There is no support for the thigh and I had severe cramps after leaving the aircraft. The flight to LA with Virgin Australia was far more comfortable."
Pros: "Smoothest long flight I’ve ever had. No hassles checking in, boarding or leaving the aircraft. Bags checked through to final destination without any problem. Good employees at the check-in counter and at the boarding gate. Service was good at LAX."
Cons: "Cabin service somewhat spotty. I was not served breakfast and had to ask for a meal even though all those sitting around me were served. My wife did not get the coffee she requested even though it was promised twice. Trash accumulated at our seat making use of the tray awkward. I tried to pre-pay for extra luggage on-line before the flight but the web site would not allow me to do so. We paid $100 per extra bag at check-in."
Pros: "Staff was very friendly"
Cons: "Headphone jacks are costume, could not use my own."
Cons: "You charged me for a checked bag. This wasn't made clear when I booked the flight."
Pros: "Plane was about 30% full so plenty of room to stretch out. Friendly crew."
Cons: "Flight left 50 minutes late because they'd lost the paperwork and had to get new copies.... not very professional! I can understand a delay due to weather or technical issues but losing paperwork shouldn't happen. The food portion was very small for an international flight."
Pros: "I loved how the airline crew were very accommodating. This was an awesome experience. A+++"
Cons: "I have no complaints."
Cons: "Flight was an hour and a half late boarding, sat on the tarmac for 45 minutes, and there was no offer of complimentary beverages. Very barebones level of service."
Cons: "They switched my gate 5 times and lost my baggage."
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"
Cons: "Flight was cancelled ."
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"
Cons: "given milk yoghurt with VGML breakfast"
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: "Leg room in economy was good. Staff very professional and made a long flight bearable."
Cons: "At check in the name on my reservation read Ron, not Ronald which is on my passport. The second agent I was referred to was unpleasant and charging $100. Had same problem out of Seoul but there was no charge for the ticket change. My interaction with the second agent left a very bad taste in my mouth."
Pros: "Choice of movies was good, but told the flight over was better. I flew another airline. Had no issue checking one bag in for free, but I think that is standard on an international flight."
Cons: "Entertainment systems take up foot/bag space underneath the seats. Was not able to get more than one glass of wine, even though I missed the first beverage service, that is my fault though, but I don't recall it being an issue getting a drink between services. Entertainment systems had contrast issues and it seemed like a lot of people 8 - 10 had issues since they were using iPads instead of the built in monitors. A lot of wear showing on the entertainment systems remotes."
Pros: "I thought the food was mediocre for business class"
Pros: "Legroom was much better than on U.S. carriers doing same long trip."
Pros: "The enforcement of the quiet time to sleep on the flight. The excellent meals. The quality of the entertainment system."
Pros: "Genuinely pleasant cabin crew, good service, good food."
Cons: "Virgin Upper Class seats are cramped, with very limited stowage space. Turning the seat into a lay flat bed (and returning it seat at the end of the flight) takes some effort--not the simplest of processes. I'm not tall, but my feet protruded into the aisle so I was being disturbed whilst sleeping. Seat is also quite narrow--feels quite claustrophobic when sleeping."
Cons: "Crew had poor communication, didn't seem friendly or helpful, no food given for free and no warnings fhat this was the case. Flight was delayed at takeoff And they did not accurately tell us how long the delay was"
Pros: "New Dreamliner aircraft was very comfortable with loads of leg room for a tall person like myself at 1.76m"
Cons: "My seat was directly under the aircon and it was blowing very cold all night which made it quite uncomfortable. Fortunately I had an extra blanket which I could wrap over my head."
Pros: "The staff, the food , everything was good. We were in premium economy and were impressed ."
Cons: "I have trouble walking and the golf buggy never arrived to take me and another lady to the airoplane so we had to walk."
Cons: "Customer service was horrible - they were so rude on the plane Food was done by the time it was our turn I got food poising off of the breakfast horrible"
Pros: "This was my 3rd time to fly to Brisbane, Australia. Love flying with Virgin Australia. They have great service and friendly staff."
Cons: "I brought my own padded seat, but it is a long flight, so it's best to get up and walk around as much as you can."
Cons: "Watch out for checked baggage fees on short haul international flights. If you buy their saver fare, VA charges you $130 to check a bag at the check-in counter. Highway robbery in my opinion! Make sure you add a bag beforehand. Corporate greed at its worst."
Pros: "Easy check in and boarding."
Cons: "Uncomfortable seats and poor food."
Pros: "Flight attendants were nice."
Cons: "Was denied the seat with extra legroom that my husband had paid for. One of my suitcases (zipper) opened on the conveyor belt, maybe it was tossed?"
Cons: "Never seen an international flight charges checked in luggage $130 US dollars a piece"
Pros: "Friendly crew and good food"
Pros: "The space you have with your legs is sufficient and the chairs are very comfortable. The food was really nice. I enjoyed the trip, although it was a long one."
Pros: "Everything except the plane itself"
Cons: "Plane cramped"
Pros: "Getting off the stinky airplane...peeyoo!"
Cons: "The three hour delay in departure."
Lost luggage & did not have special meal request even though confirmed
The flight attendant was terrible her name was chauvan
Missed our flight the first time because security and customs in Paris were out of control and took us an hour to get through. Arrived at the gate and had to reschedule. Was informed it was our fault we missed the plane, they did rebook us, but for a flight almost 11 hours later.
Broken tvs, unhelpful staff, confusing communication preventing smooth travel experience.
I liked that once up, things ran more smoothly and we still landed on time despite a 45+ minute delay leaving the gate. The boarding process was another story. With the demand for proof of a negative COVID test prior to boarding by the US, Air France had just 2 staff members checking these tests results, collecting a paper affidavit of sorts also required by the US, and checking boarding passes and passports for an entire Boeing 777 full of passengers. There were other staff around This seemed preposterous. Then, when I finally boarded, the luggage was still be loaded onto the plane at 1:50pm for a flight schedule to leave at 1:15pm.
Seats were narrow and uncomfortable ( business ) and there was only one toilet for both business and premier…. The one up front was blocked as it was solely for the crew …. One always had to wait in line with 3/4 people in front of you ..at minimum….. while you waited , the crew made it clear that you were in their way …. Fair enough as we had to stand partially in the galley…
Cons: "movie selection could have been better."
Cons: "We had to take a shuttle bus from the gate out to the plane, this made boarding very chaotic. The seats were not very comfortable- they needed more padding."
Pros: "The flight was comfortable"
Cons: "It got delayed multiple times."
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."
Cons: "Again, make sure to note conspicuously that luggage price is not included."
Pros: "Flight was on time, smooth take-off and landing, and gluten-free meal available (ordered before through Delta.com). Alcohol was available at each drink service."
Cons: "No gluten-free snacks, lack of gluten-free awareness by crew, and gluten-free meal had an apple instead of the (gluten-free) ice cream bar the other meals included for the dessert."
Pros: "Happy to be home"
Cons: "Allow more time for check in"
Pros: "The food choices were broad enough for anyone. They came by with water periodically. The movies offered had a good range. The pillow was a surprisingly good size."
Cons: "Tight seating. Cold. Arm rests hurt my arms. Foot rest would have been a blessing. Blanket was too thin."
Pros: "Friendly crew."
Cons: "Tight plane and late!"
Pros: "The care and good food was much appreciated. There were plenty of excellent movies to watch to make the time pass in an enjoyable way."
Pros: "The crew was amazing, the seats were medium on the comfort range."
Cons: "More comfortable seats and more leg room!"
Cons: "Lost my both bags in transit. Also, did not get wheelchair services at Paris and had to walk everywhere with bad legs. Not good."
Pros: "Cabin service very good and hot meal was unusually good for economy section (especially the chicken with hollandaise sauce)"
Pros: "I had the chicken beans and rice which was good, the chicken burrito was a little soggy and had to peal it out of the box but taste ok."
Cons: "The choice of the movies were either action or kids movies, i would like to see some sports movies, auto race, football or espn. All of the was energetic with great smiles and service except for one that never smiled and lacked enthusiasm. I wondered why she was on the plane."
Pros: "Preboarded and all went smooth and quick"
Pros: "Very good check in and customs, etc at both airports especially RDU."
Cons: "Only fair to good in flight service."
Pros: "Excellent crew."
Cons: "Could not get the delta Wi-Fi to work. Also my seat nearphone jack was broken."
Cons: "We thought we were flying AirFrance as our emails came from them and were surprised to learn after waiting in the AirFrance baggage drop queue for 30 mins that we were in the wrong place."
Pros: "Delta employees exceedingly cordial. food poor to moderate, seating space impossibly small but pillow and blanket were provided"
Cons: "seats too close from front to back, and not adequately cushioned"
Pros: "Food, comfort, entertainment and treatment by the crew on this flight was spectacular. There was a lot of food, good entertainment and importantly, the seats were wide and comfortable."
Cons: "Very old plane, 767-300. The bathrooms needed a better and more thorough renovation."
Pros: "Direct flight from Indy to CDG is great."
Pros: "Service was good. Was upgraded for more space."
Cons: "Intertainment unit was not working correctly. Locked up after movie was over. No offers of any sort from crew about issue."
Pros: "It was a pleasant experience. The crew were very friendly and professional. Their entertainment system and movies etc on-board was very good. Food was great too"
Cons: "Nothing really. A bit more leg room perhaps. It seems delay flights have the shortest leg room when compared to other airlines."
Pros: "There was a lot of food for this international flight. The seats were fine, just an overbooked plane."
Cons: "No complaints."
Pros: "Seats and service."
Pros: "Short no frills flight that was comfortable with no issues."
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: "Pushed back early, short taxi, took off one minute after scheduled departure, smooth flight, landed a half hour before scheduled time."
Pros: "Boarding was efficient"
Cons: "My luggage didn't arrive with me"
Pros: "Airline stewards were very friendly and pleasant."
Cons: "We booked with Delta, but were put on Air France. Even though we had our boarding passes in hand we had to wait in long, slow line for baggage tags because they would not print from kiosk. There was minimal Air France staff on duty serving thousands of passengers during busy season (July). While the lines grew larger, the staff was reduced from 4 to 2. Another long, slow line for customs, another long slow line for security=Charles De Gaulle airport was awful. We arrived at the airport 4 hours before our departure time and got to our boarding gate with no time to spare."
Pros: "The food has REALLY improved!! GREAT CREW!"
Cons: "Three bags were left at Paris and were delivered to me only after more than 48 hrs - lock of one bag was missing and other bag was in damaged condition"
Pros: "Your flight attendants were very personable and made a very long flight a comfortable as it could possibly be. They were pleasant and always available. Delta is always my go to airline ... especially on long trips as I upgraded to economy comfort and had a few more inches of leg room!"
Pros: "Frequent food offerings throughout the flight."
Cons: "Boarding the plane was not easy. We had to show our passports to a man who quizzed us on where we were coming from, where we were going, and asking questions about our luggage. After that we had to go through another security point and scan our boarding passes, but most people could not get through with our boarding passes, so we had to get in another line to show our passes to our agent. It was very stressful since we were running late since the border control line was so long! While it was stressful, I am glad that they were careful regarding the security,"
Pros: "Loved it all. That's good advice above :)"
Cons: "It was a blast!"
Pros: "The Airbus A330 business class seating was more spacious and comfortable than the Boeing 767 I flew to Paris from ATL."
Cons: "No opportunity for seat selection. Seat didn't recline, no blankets available so whatever part I couldn't cover with my jacket was cold from floor up (so no ability to control source), so no sleep, bordering on hypothermia. Seatmate was huge and continuously overflowing into my space (even though he suffered more than i did). Will endeavor NEVER to fly any flight involving Delta again."
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."
Pros: "Fast boarding, crew, entertainment."
Cons: "Not enough lavatories, space is crazy small and the time should be changes. Arriving at 8am after spending half day awake is crazy. Unless you sleep the entire flight wI think no food no restroom."
Pros: "Great crew and service. Drink were served all the time. Everyone was extra nice"
KLM is never consistent with services. Sometimes you get lucky with great comfort and other times you are forced to squeeze in a box for a seat. The food is always subpar and they have become so unfriendly when you need help. But hey, they are always on time and they have good connections.
Cons: "The touch screen did not work properly"
Pros: "The crew were great! The seats are not that comfortable, it happened that I had 3 seats raw for myself but the armrests were not going up so I could not utilize them and lie down to sleep."
Pros: "Overall a nice and good flight"
Cons: "Just a detail, my “head holder” (not too sure how it is called) would not hold in position. Also, staff was a bit slow to come after being called, I had to go and ask for water by myself at some point since no one was coming after 15minites of waiting..."
Pros: "The crew from Kili to DarEsSalam was tired. A fresh crew worked from DarEsSalam to AMS and they were great."
Cons: "The boarding process was chaotic. The passengers in the first boarding group had to fight through the crowd because there were no boarding lanes."
Cons: "Nothing. Flight was amazing"
Pros: "Terrific hot breakfast in bus. class"
Cons: "Window did not darken like the others."
Pros: "I was sorted on Row 3 and the drapes kept hitting the back of my head."
Cons: "Move the drapes a few more inches back."
Pros: "The crew."
Cons: "The time between flights."
Cons: "Fix the damn KIOSKS at Vienna!"
Pros: "Crew was nice and pleasant"
Cons: "Flight very late"
Pros: "My seat"
Cons: "My suitcase wasn’t in the plane. 8 hours in the plane and no one offered us water. We had to look for flight attendant. Entertainment wasn’t great not too many choices and quality of screens was poor"
Cons: "They check for everything in the counter as if it was a low cost airline. If you go a kilo more over your baggage allowance you have to pay 100 eur. And for your cabin luggage you only have 12 kg that they check you twice and they have security staff at the airport specifically check in this."
Pros: "Crew was fantastic."
Cons: "This was the most narrow airplane seat I’ve ever experienced. So uncomfortable."
Pros: "The crew were really helpful with people who had tight connections because of the delayed flight"
Cons: "I wish they had WiFi"
Cons: "Need more leg room!!! Larger meals needed."
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: "Boarding agent extra effort to improve my seating!"
Cons: "Food amount less than expected."
Pros: "Very attentive crew. Attended to needs immediately. Took a lot of time with each person when someone had something to say."
Cons: "The seat I had with no seats in front of me was very small. Much smaller than the other economy seats because the tray table and video screen were in the armrests. Paid extra for the legroom by ended up losing it side to side. Really had to squeeze into the seat."
Pros: "Seat 39A did not recline. The gentleman next to me spread his arms out a bit as he typed on his computer the entire way. So I did not get ANY sleep. Plus he got up at least four times."
Cons: "Except for the man next to me - great!"
Pros: "I bought the Airport tickets for my Russian friend. However customs would not allow her to board the plane unfortunately. That's not Kayaks fault. I would definitely book with Kayak again. Many thanks."
Pros: "Comfort was better than on the previous Dash-8. Food was OK."
Cons: "Despised the cold temperature and cold draft in world business even with all vents shut off...gave me a head cold. Boarding was disorganized. There was no sense of direction; ergo, everyone was jumping in."
Pros: "kLM staff was great."
Pros: "Great food"
Cons: "I paid a top price for my ticket and expect the advertised amenities to work. Upgrade or replacement for entertainment system."
Cons: "Flight departed 35 minutes late"
Cons: "Our two hour connection in Paris became 30 minutes because Air France was late in leaving Washington. So our luggage didn't make to to KLM to Amsterdam. My poor rating was because the luggage handling was really poor. Lots of flights from Paris to Amsterdam (almost hourly), but my bag showed up 12 hours later. My wife's bag took 36 hours. And yes, we checked in together. There were lots of confusing messages"
Pros: "Decent meal (warm Pasta all'arrabbiata), nice little muffin for dessert and standard drinks (coffee & tea were a bonus, as they didn't serve any on a similar flight, from Barcelona to Amsterdam), friendly cabin crew."
Cons: "Poor timing - no reason for a 40 minute delay at take off (plane was fully boarded in time) Old aircraft, shabby, dirty and cramped seats. Coming from my connecting flight from Barcelona, I could clearly tell the different in the quality (and cleanliness) of the aircrafts."
Pros: "Left ontime and service was excellent."
Pros: "We got a meal for a 1h flight only"
Cons: "No entertainment but normal for this type of flight"
Cons: "Delay can occur sometimes but it wiuld be better to be explained its reason and the estimated time for boarding. The customer service at CDG airport was the worst ever and all people standing boarding desk were useless without any mind what they are doing."
Cons: "Super delayed. Could have fixed the issue BEFORE we were sitting on tha plane for TWO hours"
Pros: "The flight crew was nice. Plane departed/arrived on time."
Cons: "I paid €60 extra to sit in the emergency door seat to get more leg room but once.i was in the plane learned for more leg room I accepted a smaller seat next to a bathroom and no entertainment. I could not store my belongings near me. No power outlet to charge my devices for my own entertainment on a 7 hour flight. Dealing with constant traffic for the bathroom. I sat in the middle seat between two hours other men. It was a constant struggle arm space. After 7hours in the air I could not wait to get off the plane. If I didn't actually pay an extra €60 for the seat I may not feel bad but I feel like I might have been better off without paying for the "upgrade""
Cons: "Crowded seating, wake-up for breakfast service two hours before arrival"
Pros: "The staff were professional and friendly The food was very good and plentiful The inflight entertainment has lots of choices The bathrooms remained clean All in stark contrast with BA with who I did the same flight 2 weeks ago and all the above points were very poor"
Pros: "787 is a great airplane. The 3-3-3 seat configuration leaves enough seat width to be just comfortable in coach."
Cons: "I don’t like the limited choice of drinks on these short KLM flights."
Pros: "Service provided by the staff"
Cons: "The navigation of the entertainment system is not very friendly"
Pros: "Flight was delayed for three hours and was a very stressful flight"
Cons: "Flight was not on time and got to destination very very late pier management of aircrafts"
Pros: "Entertainment was good, and crew was very nice and accommodating. Flight was very comfortable and smooth."
Cons: "The food was okay, not that great."
Pros: "That we didn’t crash"
Cons: "Everything! The crew was rude, no entertainment whatsoever, late boarding, late departure and bad experience with the check in process both in app and on website."
Pros: "Of the multiple international airlines I recently flew with, I would have to say KLM was by far the best. Relaxing atmosphere, comfortable seating, great in-flight entertainment, although I have the go-go in-flight data/entertainment plan with t-mobile (highly recommended), the flight included a decent selection of movies, television programs, etc. The food far exceeded typical "airline quality," even for an international flight - and included a fabulous little snack box with locally sourced gourmet and specialty items such as chocolate from Belgium, fine cheeses from France, and crackers from England. Drinks = gratis, and crew was exceptionally attentive and went out of their way to make flight as pleasant as possible."
Pros: "No chargers or tv on planes"
Cons: "At Amsterdam we were told that our checkin luggage wouldn't be at Sydney!! Some low fat meals were terrible!"
Cons: "There weren't too many options. The movie selection was very limited and the tv show were over 20 years old in some cases"
Pros: "Speed, crew, and reliablity."
Cons: "Food wasn't good, no entertainment or accessory plug ins, and seats were worn out! Not comfortable at all. Great leg room though."
Pros: "The service, entertainment, food, the crew, the aircraft were excellent."
Cons: "They put us in a Transavia plane."
Pros: "For an 8 hr flight...multiple snacks, 2 meals and continuous beverage service. Blanket, pillow amd movies."
Cons: "Watched flight attendant drop tongs on floor, pick them up and put them back in the bowl of buns and continue to use them to serve bums"
Pros: "Flight unpleasant. Ground staff in Marseiile great but gate crew didn't control carry on baggage and many of us could not use overhead bins because of passengers who stowed more than one and often oversized suitcases above, so we and many others had to place carry on suitcases under seat. Attendant on plane totally unhelpful and could have rearranged a few bags to make room but preferred to stay in back of plane and talk. To be fair, rest of flight was pleasant although late due in part to boarding issues."
Cons: "Carry on baggage issues and storage on plane. One aloof and unhelpful member of flight crew."
Boarding and online chkin was very good, food was not to the expectations.
Cons: "Boarding was a disaster as my companion was selected for random search which held us up as there was no urgency to process us. Then there was no sign for where we should go since upper deck on 747 so we went in "economy" line as indicated on ticket and then was sent to correct line when we got to the front, wasting more time. The seatrs were the most uncomfortable I have ever beeon on for a long flight. I also paid extra to be in the exit row, to have people constantly congregating in front of us.The food was also mediocre."
Cons: "There was no amenities pack given in Premium economy. The food was ok. It would have been nice to have been offered another bread roll. Seat comfort was fine, but I kept getting hit by the separating curtain as the flight attendants went back and forth from economy."
Pros: "How great everyone was and smooth sailing."
Cons: "Made sure the flight was not over booked."
Cons: "The Premium Eco seats are a catastrophe. They don't recline: the seats only slide down slightly but the upper part of your body doesn't move much. This makes for a poor experience, especially on a night flight. Except if you need the extra width, Eco has better value."
Pros: "Good aircraft, good service, on time, eventless"
Cons: "There are two types of foot-rests, both are a nuisance for people with long legs. The one popping up from below one's seat is extremely hard to put back in place. The metallic one folding down from under the seat in front cannot be secured back and is always in the way if the passenger needs to stretch his/her legs. This seems to be a new appliance, and I jut wish they would do away with it altogether. More is not necessarily better."
Cons: "Delay in take off 45 min!!!!"
Cons: "I was almost forced to stow my luggage in the hold despite me telling the check-in people tjat I had my meds and cpap in the carryon. I spoke to multiple people. Not sensitive."
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."
Pros: "Entertainment system"
Cons: "Awoke to find ill man laying on floor in aisle next to me with oxygen. Shortly after... Passenger in seat near man on floor (diabetic but no one tells us anything) needs to lay across four seats with oxygen for heart issues for remainder of trip with staff and doctor on board nearby. Nevdr informed what was happening, never offered to move our seats or move iIl passengers. Glad all turned out ok. Could have given them more privacy and better informed other passengers."
Cons: "We didn’t travel to Detroit... we were re-routed 3 times and our luggage is lost, some really helpful ppl along the way (thankfully) and some really crummy ppl too... no in between... still not to our destination"
Pros: "I like the comfortable seats"
Cons: "Service lag a little"
Pros: "Crew was great. Seats were comfortable."
Cons: "The airline lost both of my luggage suitcases."
Pros: "Crew was good, seat was not, it was freezing cold and one little blanket was inadequate!"
Cons: "Provide another blanket when needed, was wearing shorts and a short sleeve shirt."
Pros: "The comfort of the flight snd kindness of the crew."
Cons: "My connecting flight to san francisco was through Delta, which it was on a different terminal, I had to carry my luggage out of the airport in order to get to delta’s terminal - the buildings are not connected."
Cons: "No entertainment facilities"
Pros: "The crew was nice and the seat comfortable."
Cons: "Never got the pre-ordered wheelchair in Paris and only after long negotiations at JFK. Also, Delta lost my checked bag between JFK and DCA."
Pros: "Arrived on time."
Cons: "Overhead luggage storage jammed with luggage belonging to someone who was sitting far behind my seat."
Pros: "I'm not Hindu, but I requested Hindu Vegetarian meal. It was very tasty and enjoyable."
Cons: "Seats were not comfortable, even in Comfort + seating isle."
Pros: "The cue lines per zone are the most brilliant idea!"
Cons: "After boarding began there was a backup after the gate en route to the plane. No explanation. The plane left an hour later than scheduled but seemed to arrive close to scheduled time."
Pros: "great food, entertainment and seat comfort"
Pros: "Very little"
Cons: "Flight was very crowded. Flight crew kept bumping into my seat and never apologized"
Cons: "I have never been in a situation were a flight has been delayed due to the co-pilot suffering a knee injury prior to take off. A request for a doctor on board after an hour or so and then having to leave the plane and then re-board after about 40 minutes was quite bizarre."
Pros: "Good quality flight"
Cons: "But delayed and lost baggage"
Cons: "Engine noise in the cabin is loud."
Cons: "Long delays to go through security screening and then further delays as the plane was still being fueled at departure time."
Cons: "I didn’t have time to make it through customs. Missed my flight"
Pros: "Everything was fine"
Cons: "Airplane really old. Cabin configuration economy was in front of economy plus. Just 1 bathroom for economy and economy plus. Economy plus seats old and uncunfuttable ( more than it should be )"
Cons: "Booked assistance and got dumped at the gate 3hrs before departure, no English spoken and didn't even ask if my mum needed the bathroom or if we wanted to do some shopping. Just in a rush to get rid of us. Flying only KLM from now."
Pros: "The cheese and the bread"
Cons: "The unprofessional staff during boarding and food serving"
Pros: "Staff was nice"
Cons: "Very cramped. Poor leg room also with.metal bars under seats that further. Limited foot room. Terrible options in movies."
Cons: "very old planes we waited 1 hour to drop our bags as their belt had an issue we had to pay extra 70 pounds to reserve a baby cot on the plane"
Pros: "it was cancelled so they got me on the next flight on Turkish"
Cons: "My baggage was broken"
Cons: "Had to check in our underweight small carry on because there was no space left. Left out hotel at 3.15am. A dry croissant did not satisfy three hungry children for breakfast, the coffee was terrible and the seats too close together. Not a good experience."
Cons: "only there were del;ay at JFK"
Pros: "The crew is great, with their typical slightly humourous and casual French attitude. Great collection of international quality movies."
Cons: "Average and disappointing sitting space. The vegan lacto-ovo meal is disappointing."
Pros: "1) USB charger and electric outlet 2) Availability of 2-across economy seats (for a price) 3) Vegetarian dinner option available and not too bad 4) Flight arrived on-time"
Cons: "1) Front seat pocket bulging with 2 extra-thick in-flight magazines 2) No on-board wifi 3) Not much seating room - very thin"
Pros: "Not much."
Cons: "It was one problem after another during check in. And it was difficult to find help in English so I couldn't really tell what was going on. In the end I was tucking to get checked in because they were insisting I use a kiosk but I was telling them that the kiosk said to see an attendee. It was not efficient and I felt like a burden asking for help when there was nothing else I could do on my own."
Pros: "Amazing service, seat and FOOD"
Pros: "The crew was very nice and helpful."
Cons: "The food was really poor. The chicken was as dry as it can be. The food taste was poor. I flow 3 weeks ago with KLM and the food was pretty good for flight food. In a French company I expect much more. The entertainment system on the airbus a380 was like an enchant IT system from the past. Very poor reaction time. Very messy and not people oriented at all. Especially after KLM's And Delta experience."
Pros: "The food was good"
Cons: "The seats were terrible, the entertainment units were poor and staff was very reluctant to give proper service."
Cons: "I was forced to rebook my 3rd leg after taking trains in the middle."
Cons: "It was all good, only in comparison with Turkish airlines and etihad it is not at par."
Pros: "Everything good more or less."
Cons: "Planes where not updated. I would like planes to be more up to date like other companies."
Pros: "The service & food were excellent! Outstanding. Boarding was efficient, crew was polite & helpful. I've never utilized such high-tech entertainment. It was great to be able to select movies, tv, music etc. whenever I was ready."
Cons: "Can't think of anything."
Pros: "there were problems getting the tickets issued in Rome. the worker at checkin kept us for 20 minutes without telling us what was going on. the flight left the gate on time, but then we sat for an hr before leaving. no information was given as to why the flight attendants were rude. after landing we sat for an hr on the runway waiting for a gate to be available."
Pros: "The getting Paris France with no delay was great! The crews where nice and the check in with quick."
Cons: "If the airline can offer more food selections for customers who fly on economy class that would of been a plus."
Cons: "First they good have actually kept the flight. Instead I was rebooted on a flight that will get me home over three hours later than originally scheduled. And it could be even later since my connection is already delayed."
Cons: "Delays all over the place. My flights, other peoples flights. Did not meet one satisfied iceland air customer."
Pros: "The crew was so kind and accommodating, boarding, once it started, went fast. There was a balmaket and pillow on my seat and I really appreciated the blanket because at times the plane was a bit chilly. Good selection of movies."
Cons: "I would love to see some kind of meal service, or at least a snack, on flights from Iceland to the East coast of the US (in my case Philadelphia)."
Pros: "Great crew. Very friendly and helpful."
Cons: "A light snack like a cookie or pretzels would have been nice, not just water"
Cons: "Our flight was delayed 3 hours and we were instructed to rebook. After waiting over an hour to talk to an agent, we were supposedly rebooked to an Air France flight. After rushing to another terminal, the Air France check in agent told us she could not find our tickets, although the Icelandair agent gave us written confirmation. After being sent to the Air France ticketing agent (another office), we were told we were on a British Airways flight. COMPLETELY DIFFERENT AIRLINE. How were we supposed to know this? This was extremely frustrating. But BA treated us great and we can now see why they have such a great reputation."
Pros: "Crew seemed okay comparatively to other airlines/crews."
Cons: "airport delays up to 2 hours, not knowing which gate and changing it all the time in Reykjavik, seating was hyper cramped, no food to compensate for the extra long trip, my carry on was taken from me even though it easily fit in overhead (it's a legal size duffel bag). I was exhausted after spending well over 14 hours in airports and 2 planes from Paris to DC."
Cons: "We were not told in advance that we had to pay $95 per checked bag each way. This changed the price of the airfare from reasonable to expensive. The planes coming back from Paris were filthy dirty!"
Pros: "The plane was nice and I truly loved the movies offered on board."
Cons: "I wasn’t aware of the fact you need to order your food prior to departure to get it on board."
Pros: "Comfortable seats, pillows and blanket available. Boarding was quick. Only ordered yogurt for food, but would definitely order meal items in the future. Great entertainment center with lots of choices helped pass the time."
Cons: "Airport at Keykjavik is confusing and chaotic."
Cons: "Both flights were delayed. Paris to Iceland and Iceland to Dulles. The Paris to Reykavitch was delayed ...somehow when I arrived at CGD I was told I was on standby. I bought the flight through your site in October!....so obviously the cheaper tickets get bumped off first. I got on the flight anyway. As the plane was taking off I got the right for a "shower" 8E or F....water was dripping down into the seat. I made the stewardess aware of it bc I was not sure whether this was the beginning of a downpour or just a consistant drip....She told me she got a couple of drips too. My response to her was wait a minute you are working, I paid 300+ for this seat. She shrugged. When she came around with her cart she offered me two chocolate bars? In reykavitch we sat on the tarmack waiting for passengers delayed from Berlin. They could have delayed boarding a little more since the flight was delayed anyway."
Pros: "The entertainment selection was good (movies) and the staff was friendly, however on the 8 hour flight, my headphone jack to watch movies did not work."
Cons: "The connector for my headphones did not work on the 8 hour flight, every other airline will provide, at a minimum, a complimentary snack where as on this flight you needed to pay for everything, seat assignments were changed (booked with a group of 6 and we were all sitting with each other when we booked it but when we got to the gate everyone was scattered. In fact, I heard a man say he was on his honeymoon and that they changed his wife's seat so they were unable to sit together."
Pros: "Arriving alive"
Cons: "Trumped up baggage fees that I should not have had to pay because I never had the option to select baggage options during booking. Poor customer service. Old interior cabins and planes in general which need repair...caused a 1 hour delay and almost missed my connecting flight. Not good legroom for a tall person and airline would not let people ait in spacious unused exit row seats."
Pros: "Crew was helpful and professional."
Cons: "Not enough leg and seat space and I am a small person at 5 ft tall and 105 lbs. I was subjected to an extensive security search which took a great deal of time. Iceland Air did hold the plane for me and were professional in their work."
Pros: "On-flight entertainment options were excellent. Flight was on time both ways to/from Paris."
Cons: "No food or alcohol included which for an international flight was surprising. Restrooms on the plane were DISGUSTING. The middle seats all have a large box underneath which precludes one from even sliding a small backpack underneath... literally only a few inches of clearance. So if you have a middle seat do not expect to have under seat storage space for anything larger than a small purse."
Pros: "Was able to get a exit row with more leg room"
Cons: "Seat did not recline which was very unfortunate for. 7.5 hour flight."
Pros: "The crew was pleasant but not overly friendly. The plane was more or less comfortable."
Cons: "I did not like that there was no food given. Even a package of peanuts or crackers would have been something."
Cons: "Took over an hour to check luggage in."
Pros: "Everything that was under Icelandair's control went great! Got an unexpected upgrade on both legs of my flight, the cabin was comfortable, and it had a good selection in-flight entertainment for a budget airline."
Cons: "No food is served--be sure to pack a snack. If you're planning to eat in Reykjavik, bear in mind that airport food is especially expensive in Iceland."
Cons: "Our luggage has not as yet arrived."
Pros: "The price"
Cons: "They let on big carry on bags, and there wasn't room for my bag near my seat."
Pros: "Crew was courteous and friendly."
Cons: "Construction in the Iceland Airport made the transfer practically impossible. Going to Paris and returning home we made our connection by only a few minutes. It was much more stressful that it needed to be. You basically had to just cut in front of the entire queue to get through the passport control in time."
Pros: "I love being able to get in and out of security much easier than other airlines. Love Iceland air. Just need to be prepared to bring food to eat"
Pros: "The crew were kind, attentive, and pleasant. The leg room was appreciated"
Cons: "Not even a complimentary snack was offered during the 7 hour flight, let alone a glass of wine or beer. These used to come standard. The entertainment system was also of poor quality in that the audio connection was damaged."
Pros: "-Price -Service -The technology of the aircraft. -How easy it was to do the web-check in (and the overall website)"
Cons: "Didn't like that you had to pay for food on long/overnight flights."
Cons: "Sitting in row 33, couldn't recline seat and to close to rest room."
Pros: "A little more room than standard economy long-haul flights. Entertainment available on all seatbacks. Very friendly flight crew."
Cons: "Wished for free wine but oh well. My seat back screen had to be reset but that was about it."
Pros: "Staff was nice"
Cons: "Flight was late because of changing winds"
Pros: "Despite late boarding, staff assured passengers, that there would not be any problems with connections in Keflavik."
Cons: "Boarding started over 30 minutes late, making one question whether or not one's connecting flights could still be made."
Cons: "Minimal leg room"
Pros: "Despite leaving Paris over an hour late, we made it to Iceland on time for our transfer"
Cons: "The Iceland airport was very disorganized, with not enough waiting room, causing lines to fuse together, and become very stressful as there were 10+ flights leaving at the same time, all trying to board beside each other."
Pros: "Ticket price"
Cons: "Terrible delay and food services"
Pros: "I liked that the women looked all the same and were beautiful and kind the outfits were classy"
Pros: "Crew friendly; on-time schedule"
Cons: "We chose our seats 6 months in advance and when it came time to fly all of our four seats become "unassigned" meaning we each had a middle seat and were not seated together. Obviously someone has to have the middle seat but what is the point of allowing a passenger to choose, feel good for the moment when there is no intention of keeping that arrangement? Bait and switch? At least be upfront that there are no assigned seats. Altho somehow others were able to book OUR seats... We will be looking to book with other airlines before choosing IceAir again. Even if we have to pay a bit more. Very disappointing for long international travel when you are under the impression that all is set..."
Cons: "No free meal, constant duty free sales runs up and down the aisle by flight attendants, broken seats and headphone jacks, slow and clumsy boarding process"
Pros: "Pleasant service, new comfortable aircraft."
Pros: "The crew is always nice and polite and helpful. Really great people."
Cons: "Both of our flights were delayed. That was very difficult with three little children. The first flight was late 3 hours and they finally handed out fruit snacks, but they ran out before our family got any. The kids got very very fussy."
Pros: "Watched a great movie, made the time go fast. Seat was comfortable. Crew was very service oriented."
Cons: "I had to check my backpack because of my trekking pole, which weren't an issue first time around. When I got them they were separated from my pack and broken in two. Upsetting, offsetting the nice flight. Also, had to buy earbuds for movies( mine were my pack) way too expensive!"
Pros: "It was fine."
Cons: "Cannot understand the commander when he gives instructions in English for both flight"
Pros: "I have flown with Iceland Air two times now and each time has been less then satisfactory. The first time they cancelled my flight and booked me with someone else. The next time they were so delayed on each leg I has to sprint through the airport to make my connections each of which were over 2 hour layovers. And to top it off I had my checked bag lost."
Pros: "The Reykjavik airport is a mess with constriction. It took over an hour to get our bags and most waited longer."
Cons: "The Reykjavik airport is a mess with constriction. It took over an hour to get our bags and most waited longer."
Pros: "I like the very clean environment on the the aircraft. Friendly, professional staff."
Cons: "Would have liked some complimentary food/alcohol and a wide body jet for this long of a flight."
Cons: "Huge check-in wait even with arrrival 2+ hours before departure"
Cons: "Layover times are very short and other flights arriving and departing at same time delay the time flights actually leave."
Pros: "We got to the airport more than 3 hours early and couldn't check in until the counter opened and then ended up standing in a very long line."
Cons: "We like that security was at the gate and was very quick to get through."
Pros: "The check in at CDG was a cluster, but other than that the flight attendants and crew were really nice."
Pros: "Plane was clean, crew friendly and helpful, built-in touch screen entertainment was excellent. Even the sandwiches were good!"
Cons: "We only had an 80-minute stop before our connection and it was hard to get through the passport review in that amount of time, since our plane left Paris late."
