Erything was excellent and easy
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: "This is the way to fly long haul."

Pros: "Everything! From check-in all the way to the landing of the plane I was really satisfied! There were a couple crew members that really made the flight feel so at-home/friendly that one could not help but just smile and relax in the flight. Awesome job crew on Flight VA69!"
Cons: "I wish my partner and his family were with my parents and I on the flight to enjoy the experience we had as well."

Pros: "The roomie seats, the USB port, and in flight entertainment"
Cons: "Child free section"

Cons: "Meals were very small but tasty. Movie options were random but enough to keep you occupied."
Cons: "at last minute itinerary was changed.. instead of routing through Brisbane, was now routed through Sydney. Flight from Sydney to LAX was delayed by 4 hours, then missed flight LAX to LAS... overall long delayed arrival. Checked the route through Brisbane, and those flights we're all there, departed and landed all on-time... so wondering what the reason was for the change of the itinerary without a cause (no cancel or delayed flights through Brisbane)"
Pros: "My flight was canceled and Virgin Atlantic gave us a free room in the hotel Ramada. My next flight was at 18:55 and I asked Virgin Atlantic agent am I allowed to stay in the room until time for my flight comes, he confirmed yes and gave me breakfast, lunch, and dinner voucher. However, next day around 12 I got call from Front Desk that I have to leave my room right away because it's time to chack out and If I want to stay longer I have to pay. I called Virgin Atlantic agancy again and the agent run my information and said to me I can stayin the room longer. After that I called front desk to confirm that but they said they didn't hear anything from Virgin Atlantic and I have to leave the room by 1pm. All of this was really unpleasant!"

Pros: "The food was okay"
Cons: "The gate was Jane without announcement"
Pros: "The crew was pleasant and attentive"
Cons: "The entertainment system was not good. The touch screen was not calibrated and very hard to select and scroll through. The flight was over a hour late so we missed our connection. Got rebooked okay, but after traveling for 18 hours having to wait three extra hours was a drag."
Cons: "I did not like the fact that my seat was between 2 small children that belonged to a family sitting behind me .It was ridiculous to put a stranger on a 10 hour flight with a 3yrar old on one side and a 5 year old on the other"
Pros: "Great, friendly, professional crew, clean comfortable plane. Loved that full dinner and baggage and wine was included in an economy class overnight from DC to London as well as breakfast. Best flight in a long time, will definitely fly again."
Cons: "the tv screen's touch screen capabilities could use an upgrade, it was a hassle to navigate, not very sensitive to touch."
Pros: "Cabin crew were accommodating and nice throughout the flight. Meals were good and the service was quick. Large range of entertainment selection for the trip helped pass the time."
Cons: "The check in process and boarding process were very slow. It made going through security a bit stressful and I didn't have much time after going through the security to use the bathrooms or get a quick bite to eat before the plane boarded."
Pros: "Staff was very friendly"
Cons: "Headphone jacks are costume, could not use my own."
Pros: "Overall comfortable journey"

Cons: "I have no complaints."
Cons: "My flight was cancelled due to technical problems! Hope to be on another flight today as I missed my connecting flights too!!"

Pros: "Excellent entertainment options, out stewardess was fantastic."
Cons: "Cramped seats."
Pros: "I was selected for additional screening at the gate. I have no problem with this at all. From the start I told them I am traveling with my fiancee. They tried to hold me back in a separate area after the screening and I once again told them my fiancee was waiting for me. One staff memeber walked with me half way back to get her and then disappeared. By the time I found her and came back, the staff memeber was no where to be found. Now we had lost are spot in the line and had to go to the back of the line. We spoke to 3 different staff people about what was going on and everyone said, oh the guy over there will help you. But no one did. The staff had No idea how to run a security check or handle paople. There was No working wifi! There was no tvs in the seats, only the old style in the aisle. The staff told me the plan was going to retire at the end of the month. The food was more for animals then for humans! We got updates by txt 10 mins before the staff updated the gate on our flight out from SFO. I have traveled all over the world with a lot of airlines and Never had such a poor service, but what is it to expect. It was United after all!"
Cons: "Refund of the whole flight."
Pros: "I had a great experience from start to end of my trip. Most of the staff were pleasant and professional. Food wasn't okay and red wine on flight from Heathrow was delicious."

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: "Food, crew, entertainment great"
Cons: "Seat were very uncomfortable.. hard, not enough leg room and there was no way to sleep comfortably with the head rest that is set up so you can rest your head on it,but its awkward and hard an in the way..."

Pros: "My flight was delayed boarding, Entertainment wasn't exciting oppose to other Virgin flights I have taken in previous years. Food wasn't great. I had teriyaki chicken with rice and I left it. Big dislike - when I was checking in online I found some economy seats I couldn't allocate for my seating due to additional charge applies. I think this is very off putting as I have been a Virgin member for years and it is very disappointing."
Cons: "I liked the Airbus carrier which had only two seats (window and Isle) on each sides oppose to three. It felt more comfortable."
Pros: "We were inmiddle seats -not our preference. We were told in Dublin that we had different seats to the ones we ended up in. Food was excellent, crew were very nice. Loved the "make a wish" event on this flight - a definite plus for Virgin."
Pros: "Great direct flight. Quit on the plane. Plenty of time to rest and sleep"
Pros: "The crew of the flight were very sweet and helpful"
Cons: "When I bought my ticket I wasent informed that I needed a return ticket out of New Zealand before entering so I had to buy one super last minute and almost missed my flight"
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."
Pros: "Crew and service was amazing"
Cons: "Paid $28 for internet and it didn’t work"
Pros: "Cabin crew and entire experience was phenomenal. Cannot recommend Delta more!"
Pros: "Crew was amazing"
Cons: "Food could have been better, seat was uncomfortable."
Pros: "Crew, food, flight."
Cons: "Could always use a wider seat. I just hate having my hips touching a stranger for the whole trip."
Cons: "Plane was late taking off. Crew did not provide water when requested. They were busy with beverages that they could sell at a cost."
Pros: "We got home safely! The crew was great and generally cheerful despite less than great conditions."
Cons: "Lots of delays due to weather, which I get. The plane was small and old and stuffy with too close seats."
Cons: "Best option across the pond"
Cons: "Seats hardly recline. Very difficult to sleep in this red eye flight."
Pros: "Some of the crew members talked loudly in the galley all night long. Mostly gossiping and complaining. We had the last seats next to the galley, so it was frustrating to not have quiet and be able to sleep. This was a flight run by Delta for Air France."
Cons: "The food was horrible."
Pros: "Everything except landing at the same time my next flight was boarding. I had to sprint and was greeted my the meanest delta agent I have ever known. I didn’t know you could be that snotty. She would not Listen to me or help me get the correct seat o had signes up for"
Cons: "Attends on flight said to go ask gate crew to help me and I rushed out to be greeted again by the bus mean crude snotty agent. She told me to get my rear on the plane The attendants didn’t have a clue that she had others to board ( they all got upgrades) and I better move my rear. I was shocked."
Pros: "Good service"
Cons: "Video system locked up at my seat"
Pros: "Lisa @ the Boston Delta check-in counter is AMAZING! She's super helpful and essentially saved our vacation! Her coworkers say she's the best and I couldn't agree more! Delta is very lucky to have someone like Lisa on their team!"
Cons: "Nothing to complain about! If I really head to be picky maybe the in-flight meals were smaller than I expected. But again, nothing that bothered me"
Pros: "Flight itself was fine"
Cons: "My flight to Atlanta was delayed which caused me to miss my flight to Seattle. The next earliest flight was booked so had to catch another flight several hours later. No one from Delta offered any sort of compensation."
Cons: "Noise in cabin unable to sleep"
Pros: "Great service. Smooth flight. Funny flight attendants. No issues boarding or deplaning."
Cons: "Food wasn’t great. What’s new?"
Pros: "Got to London on-time (early, actually) and safely. The in flight meal was okay. The leg room in comfort plus was great, the mobile app was awesome, and the staff (check-in, gate, cabin and flight deck) were professional and friendly all around."
Cons: "The leg room was great, but as a broad-shouldered guy, the width of the seat was miserable. Unfortunately, the Delta 767 doesn't offer any upgrade for a wider seat beyond Delta One, and my employer won't spring for that. Too bad there isn't a premium economy option. Also, the entertainment unit in the seat next to mine malfunctioned, which you wouldn't think would impact me that much except that because it was "seeing" touches randomly throughout the flight, the screen would turn on, off, brighter, dimmer, play random stuff, and just generally be as annoying as possible to everyone nearby throughout an overnight flight."
Pros: "The plane left on time if not a bit early."
Cons: "With the exception of 1 really nice flight attendant all the others were extremely moody and not helpful. I didn’t see one of them smile through the whole flight like they were just going through the motions. I’ve worked in jobs where you have to deal with the general public but you have a job to do and must smile and do your best to be helpful. I felt intimidated to even ask for anything like I was wasting their time. I love flying Delta and this was my worst experience yet."
Pros: "The staff"
Pros: "Great service throughout. Friendly attendants and easy boarding/deboarding processes. Would fly international with them again in a heart beat."
Pros: "Quick and easy boarding. Quick flight"
Cons: "Audio entertainment quite limited"
Pros: "Staff are nice, and helpful"
Cons: "Take far too long, efficiency is extremely poor, missed flight due to luggages being lost, requested vegetarian meal, when booking, confirmed at gate but didn't have me on the list for special meal. ECONOMY class has nooo room for a long flight...and no entertainment only 3 choices for western."
Pros: "Food good, wine OK"
Cons: "Discomfort bad"
Pros: "Space looked a bit cramped in business class but I was pleasantly surprised at the length of the flat bed and the additional foot well space once I'd reclined the seat."
Cons: "Need to fix the flickering lights in the JFK club lounge, the opposite of relaxing!"
Cons: "Price to get a little more space"
Pros: "Crew was very helpful."
Cons: "Food was terrible and check in can be more organized."
Pros: "I booked via Kayak using Virgin Atlantic shared out to Delta. Check was confusing as both airlines used different flight numbers. When I went to check in with Virgin Atlantic they told me to go to Delta. When I went to Delta they told me to go back to Virgin Atlantic. I wound up checking in with Virgin Atlantic. Everyone was very polite but check in was confusing. Everything else was wonderful. Cutomer service was great from beginning to end."
Cons: "Check in."
Pros: "More seat room than expected for economy tickets. Good service, on time, polite staff"
Cons: "Duty free purchases not waiting for us at boarding like usual. Audio selection on entertainment was v poor"

Cons: "Delayed take-off, one plane for hour or so."
Pros: "Delta has a pretty good entertainment system. Lots of movies to watch and the system works well."
Cons: "Seats are very tight and uncomfortable. The food was horrible. Tasted like a $1 frozen meal that was microwaved til mushy. It was chicken but I couldn't tell you more. And flight attendant helpfully described it as 'chicken'. Breakfast was a cold roll, a piece of cheese and some awful yogurt. This was the most unbearable 8.5 hours of my life."
Pros: "Crew were good, flight on time, free drinks"
Pros: "Thomas our steward was excellent."
Pros: "ability to book a later flight when I missed my connection through the delta app."
Cons: "Delays, missed a connection, booked a new connection through the app and that one was delayed as well...what was supposed to be a 3.5 hour experience turned into a much longer one. Seats do not accommodate people over 6'2" abiet very poorly."
Cons: "Horrible customer service coming and going. Horrible service on the plane and mostly, some of the rudest people I have ever had to deal with. Delta should take lessons from SWA. By the way, this isn't the only bad experience I've had. Flown Delta 4 times over last six months and almost the same."
Pros: "The flight was smooth and the food selection was surprising delicious. The crew was very attentive."
Cons: "The leg room was much less than the last time I flew Virgin (booked via Delta) and made for an uncomfortable trip. Could not sleep as a result. If you're tall like me you'll need to book a higher seating category."
Pros: "Everything that British Airways tried to do to help us when Delta didn't want to take ownership for their screwups!"
Cons: "Not only did we miss our Delta connection but when Delta rebooked us on a British Airways flight they refused to help when British Airways could not access our tickets. they kept saying since it was Virigin Atlantic who we originally booked through that VA woulkd have to fix it, even thought Delta was the actual carrier and the ones that did the rebooking onto the British Airways flight"
Pros: "My Delta flight was a code share with Virgin Atlantic. A pleasant flight overall with my first impression being an airline with current popular music playing in the background and flight attendants cheerful. Since I was traveling alone, I opted to not purchase my seat prior to my flight date, instead I chose my aisle seat within 24 hours for free. I checked in my one bag and found out I had pre-checked so my security check went so smooth at the new terminal 2 at LAX. Looking forward to my flight back on June 15."
Cons: "Had a toddler behind me crying and screaming the last 40 minutes of landing into Heathrow because she couldn't sit on her mother's lap and made it quite unbareable for all of us in the vicinity. Wondering if there was an alternative way to handle the situation."
Pros: "Everything was just right"
Pros: "Crew was great!"
Cons: "Flight was so short there was no food , drink or entertainment."
Pros: "On my ticket it clearly indicate that I am entitled to 2 check in baggage. Delta completely refused to honor this. They said am only entitled 1 piece, and therefore I have to pay for the other luggage. I was forced to borough money from someone at the airport just so that I could board the flight."
Cons: "I am asking that my money be refunded. And next time delta should honor and respect agreements. And be more professional"
Pros: "The amount of movies to watch"
Cons: "Seating not enough room, couldn't use the overhead lights for 7 1/2 hour flight. Ridiculous."
Cons: "The food was supposed to be hot chicken was served cold"
Pros: "Online check in was very good. Liked the ability to select free seats ahead of 24hr window. Liked being air side for the whole trip Detroit airport Terminal A was good. Free WiFi 50mb + awesome. Crew were friendly and efficient Will do this trip again."
Cons: "Seat always seem uncomfortable after 3hrs anywhere! And more leg room would always help. Food was OK liked the choice of 3 meals difficult to do quality food for 200+ but keep trying to improve"
Cons: "It was Delta not Virgin"
Pros: "The in-flight service was extremely good."
Cons: "The seat was slightly too short for me. If Delta provided a soft mattress cover, slimiler to that of Virgin Atlantic, then the flat bed would be far more comfortable."
Pros: "The crew were wonderful, efficient, and professional."
Cons: "On this Delta flight operated by Virgin Atlantic one of us was unable to check in or change our seats. You think you are getting Delta but everything must be done through VA. VA bag weights are less than Delta and the seat was incredibly cramped. We both had to sit with our legs bowed to the side as the seat ahead was so close. For nine hours we were cramped and could not sleep due to only be able to squeeze into one position. To get into the seat I put on leg in and then sat on the armrest and then brought my other leg up and then lowered my but into the seat. I am not even 6 feet tall and had this issue. So due to the difficult online check-in and seat selection and to the cramped seats we will never fly Virgin Atlantic again."
Cons: "The seat in this plane is the narrowest and most uncomfortable I have ever encountered in business."
Pros: "New business class configuration on Dreamliner - love that Virgin gives out pajamas, staff are always incredibly nice"
Cons: "Seats are surprisingly narrow, and lack privacy"
Pros: "Great atmosphere, crew was excellent!"
Cons: "I’m 6’5”, so legroom can always be a complaint, but this wasn’t too bad. The plane appeared to be fairly old and didn’t have WiFi. Entertainment also was on an older screen which was navigated by using an old in-seat phone."
Cons: "Boarding was chaotic & therefore delayed take off a little Receiving luggage was slow -@ 35 minutes from landing to luggage claim, so actual arrival was considerably later for those meeting me"
Pros: "Seats super comfy. Ended up with 3 seats to myself that formed a bed for the lap Uk to NZ. Very nice!"
Pros: "Seat was good"
Cons: "Depart on time (1 hour late), hostess put a laptop in the overhead, which fell out and hit me when the bin was opened"
Cons: "The air conditioners fan was bad and they had to fix it in London which took over 40 minutes off travel time...we arrived much later than expected in Lagos"
Pros: "The crew was great! The food was also much better than other airlines. And passing out whole bottles of water was much appreciated."
Pros: "The crew"
Cons: "Seat comfort"
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."
Cons: "We were told they were holding our flight, we ran 3 terminals and they’d already left."
Pros: "KLM was a great experience compared to Airitalia. The food was good, the flight attendants were very helpful."

Pros: "Crew was good"
Pros: "Good food, friendly service"
Cons: "More trash pickup; only one round of beverage service"
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: "Entertainment options."
Cons: "Service was poor, seat did not recline, and the food was terrible."
Cons: "My suitcase didn't come with the airline."
Pros: "Smooth flight."
Cons: "Seat a little cramped."
Pros: "Short flight and being able to escape from drunk belligerent Passenger on previous flight"
Pros: "Shirt flight but well catered, boarding was efficient and quick."
Cons: "Not lots of legroom but adequate for an hour long hop. It was cold on board and also had to board via steps from outside"
Pros: "Seats were comfortable and there was enough room for hand baggage. I slept during the flight so do not have opinion on entertainment."
Cons: "Not able to charge my digital devices. When serving beverages and food, the same flight attendant missed me a few times. That was annoying but other attendants were very nice."
Pros: "I slept pretty much the whole time"
Pros: "Interior of the plane was clean. Smooth landing."
Cons: "Pilot did not avoid turbulence"
Cons: "You are almost always late!"
Cons: "Flight was cancelled."

Cons: "They have mabaged to lost my luggage"
Pros: "Arrived Early!"
Cons: "Left Late :-)"
Cons: "I can't take the flight because i'm not Chilean and I don't have a reembolse or other flight ,... nothing . Finally I take other flight with other company"
Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "Entertainment was dated and poor in function. Our bags were 99 dollars each and we’re both lost and didn’t arrive. I just filed a claim and got rude service saying I should have filed the claim at the airport baggage area but there was not anybody there to do the claim then he agent upstairs said they just spoke to them and they are there and I should have done it there. This was so rude and there is no way to get back into customs area. If we paid 200 for bags I expect them to arrive on time. I’m asking for a refund of the baggage fees."
Pros: "Clean airplane, friendly crew, no rush, nice snacks for a short one hour flight. Just generally a positive experience."
Pros: "Short-hop flight, fit for purpose."
Pros: "Thankful for coffee being served without charge. Not all airlines do that."
Cons: "Flight was delayed 8 hours. Arriving at Incheon, discovered ground crew were unaware of our arrival to take this connecting flight. However, we were put up overnight in a hotel, which was nice."
Pros: "Very little if any."
Cons: "Aircraft was not very clean,the staff seamed quite harsh at times when speaking to customers. The food was really quite poor but it was a short flight to be honest. Overall not as pleasant as the China Southern flights. I would not like to choose them again unless i had to."
Pros: "The crew service is impeccable. Ground services very friendly and professional."
Cons: "The seats are very uncomfortable. The individual screens are simply outdated like you basically will damage your eyes looking at them. No chargers for phones."
Cons: "Pet was left behind at vacation destination as pet's reservation (made and confirmed through KLM) was not found at check in. Waiting for Customer Care to help get pet home and take responsibility for situation and getting no response. Very dissapointed, considering law suit."
Cons: "The bags where damaged from the staff"
Pros: "Staff at Schipol airport were lovely and very helpful. Cabin crew were friendly and efficient. On board snack was nice."
Cons: "Elbow room is a little bit awkward and I didn't get to sit next to my fiance WE will still definitely recommend KLM though!"
Pros: "The crew were really helpful since I am a short person in putting my luggage away in the overhead compartment and attentive to everyone's needs. I am a fussy eater and don't really like airplane food but the food was actually really nice. We was given plenty of snacks and drinks in between meals as well. There was plenty of programmes to choose from to keep me entertained."
Cons: "The seats in economy were a little too small for a 12 hour flight"
Pros: "The flight was delayed by 40 minutes initially then a further 20 making it an hour late. Sitting at the gate there was then suddenly a last call to board the flight and a mad rush for everyone to get on. I appreciate that delays happen but the lack of communication ragardinh altered boarding times didn't make the situation any easier"
Cons: "As above"
Pros: "Staff superb. They even surprised us with an exit row and a gift for my partners birthday! Amazing. Samantha and Dennis also took time to come and personally wish him a happy birthday. A lovely touch. This airline runs like clockwork. They are just great. The sandwich and stoop waffle are nice too."
Cons: "There is a bus to the plane, so that takes a bit of extra time but they are very well organized."
Pros: "Flight was efficient enough and staff were friendly."
Cons: "It was delayed quite a bit and more on-time updates would have been appeciated."
Pros: "Everything was good. The crew was very friendly and attentive. The plane was comfortable, with great entertainment on the personal screens. The food was delicious. Flight was on time and actually arrived early, but then we had to wait for a gate (not the airline's fault)."
Cons: "No complaints at all."
Cons: "The fact that there are different airline carriers for one flight is hard. In my second flight they made me check a bag which was considered a carry on during my first flight"
Pros: "Short, comfortable flight. Nothing special. Got us where we needed to be without incident."
Cons: "Nothing. This is filler text to meet the min. characters."
Pros: "The crew were very friendly and accomodating, plane was clean and boarding amd disembarking was efficiently handled."
Cons: "55 minute delay was not welcome."
Cons: "Fewer entertainment options than the delta flight. I got excited with that first flight."

Pros: "Very friendly crew, great seats in economy with lots of legroom."
Pros: "Friendly crew, great food, comfy seats"
Pros: "The flight was adequate."
Cons: "Sandwich was extremely unappetising and there were no hot drinks. The worst thing was that in transiting from the SAA flight to the Lufthansa flight we were obliged to go through security which seems unnecessary. The security staff were awful. Bullying, rude and totally unsympathetic to the fact that having brought water from the first plane to the second plane we had to either drink it or throw it away. One guy in particular, a tall greying man evoked the worst stereotypes of brutal secret policemen. Perhaps he formerly worked for Stasi or he was having testosterone problems. Totally unacceptable behaviour."

Pros: "The crew was wonderful and this is consistent with my previous experiences with Lufthansa. The salami sandwich provided was actually very good."

Pros: "Usual good service for economy class on this airline"
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "Plane loaded late then waited on the tarmac, arrived an hour later than scheduled time. This has happened to me on every one of the ten Lufthansa flights I have been on. Apparently they don't know what it is to be on-time."
Cons: "Refusal to board as our flight was a few minutes landing"
Cons: "The crew didn't seem particularly interested in helping anyone and worked hard to avoid eye contact. This was an unpleasant flight at best and given the option I will not likely fly Lufthansa again if given the option. I wish that I had better news to report from this flight. :("
Pros: "Gave us snacks when flight was delayed"
Cons: "Flight was delayed Entertainment app didn't work"
Pros: "Darned site more comfortable than the first leg of the journey."
Cons: "Tell your passengers they need hiking boots to get from main concourse to B terminal!"
Cons: "Was a short flight , so really I don't have any negative impression"
Pros: "Staff was very friendly and caring."
Cons: "No entertainment and half sandwich with some cookies was the only food we got."
Pros: "Clean, friendly environment, friendly staff, even though a bit bossy, but that's the German way (which I am too)."
Cons: "Little space. and NO WIFI. This is really no longer adequate in 2017. In the US, practically all domestic flights have wifi now."
Pros: "787 seat spacing (a UA plane, not LH)"
Cons: "Took first available train , arr. Freising at 9:50. Arrived at Terminal 2 by bus ca. 10:25. I am handicapped and a slow walker, so I got to departure floor ca. `10:40. Waited in line at self-serve check-in; found out that it does not have ability to process numbers (for US address). Attendant was not helpful and nasty. She told me me to go to the regular check-in line, where I waited another 45 minutes. None of the 3 "help" personnel standing around when approached managed to tell me that there was a special counter for handicapped persons. The one at the express self-check-in refused to give me her lasst name or any form of ID (first name Sophia). After waiting an additional 15 minutes for a wheelchair, I was deposited in a waiting area, where a second wheelchair arrived after another long wait. Told me I might not make the plan (I did). Overall a very unpleasant and nasty experience. With the exception of the very nice lady (Mrs. Ilser?? ) who checked in my luggage, none of the other 3 persons at the express and regular check-in spoke decent German or English, and none was helpful (Go there, wait!!!) Barely made the plane in MUC, Heathrow turned out much better than the touted German efficiency. Please forward to Lufthansa customer relations. Dr. W. Hartwig"
Pros: "Check in process was simple and efficient. The crew on the plane were polite and friendly. Flight arrived early."
Cons: "Boarding was a little chaotic. The sandwiches offered were extremely dry."
Pros: "The staff were great. Food (sandwiches) and drink were included in the service. Music entertainment was included at no extra charge."
Cons: "All good. United and USA domestic carriers need to learn what to do from lufthansa."
Pros: "The crew and in flight experience were excellent."
Cons: "Both Lufthansa and United's boarding announcements fail to account for passengers' impatience and neglect of boarding group procedure. Lufthansa doesn't clearly identify when un-prioritized groups should begin to board. United should make clear that unspecified group members attempting to board prematurely will be held to the back of the queue for their appropriate group."
Pros: "On time, fast boarding"
Cons: "Food. Couple of screens not working."
Pros: "The crew came round with bottled water multiple times during the trip and even after taking off 15 min late, we still landed 30 mins early and the luggage came out quickly."
Cons: "The meal before landing consisted of nothing but the worst ham sandwich I've ever had the mis-fortune to be served: reminiscent of Bulgarian Airlines in the 80's."
Pros: "On time and smooth"
Pros: "We arrived in London ahead of time. We go to Newark ahead of time"
Cons: "The food"
.Ealing could have been better but no complaints on everything else
Pros: "I never got on the flight as there is a global pandemic and a mandate for NY'ers not to travel. The worst part is that I don't think I'm getting a refund."
Pros: "They were nice, rushed through beverages, but since it was a short flight that's understandable."
Cons: "The top cushion on the seats could be less bulky."
Cons: "No USB charging point working and I had purchased on board wifi"

Cons: "See above"
Pros: "Crew and food and communication were great!"
Cons: "Non dairy food options"
Pros: "Allowed us to have a week layover in Dublin on the way to Amsterdam"
Cons: "Most cramped flight I have ever experienced. Tiny seats, no legroom, and super narrow aisles so that people walking up and down would invariably bump your shoulder when they walked by - makes for a difficult sleep. Rude air hostesses Waited on ground 2 HOURS, inaccurate info, no service, nada"
Pros: "Quick boarding, kind crew"
Cons: "All food and drinks for a cost. I had to run to make it to my gate which was quite a distance and a shuttle ride away."

Their luggage handler - global- extremely un/non professional. Absolute diaster: no offical tracing nr established, had tocontact air lingus myself.their phones seem not to work - the phone rings,then disconnects. Still no update on the present whereabout of the bag"
Pros: "Great service at the airport from Iberia, once in the plane, slow service with the drink cart, but comfortable seats and pleasant flight."

Cons: "The aircraft was very cold."
Pros: "I paid extra for food and my seat so I don't like giving 5 stars for what I paid for."

Pros: "It was pretty fast and the temperature was very comfortable. I didn't have to cover up with blankets."
Cons: "I was surprised they didn't offer a free snack and drink. I was caught off guard not knowing that I had to pay for both and there wasn't any entertainment. There weren't screens for shows or music."
Pros: "Friendly, helpful crew"
Cons: "The snack at end of 8 hour flight was a fajita (good), but no soft drink offered with it, just tea or coffee."
Pros: "Window seat"
Cons: "Was hungry."
Pros: "We waited about a half hour for the fuel crew to come and fill up the plane, but the staff and the captain were very nice and informed us of all updates and progress being made. I didn't even mind the extra wait! We still were able to make our next transfer and got to the airport in great time!"
Pros: "All was ok on trip. We didn't have food or drink."
Cons: "The trip while 10mins late leaving was ok. The big problem I felt was we were going to a funeral and 2 booked Monday and 3 booked Tuesday. We are 3 retired ladies and had to pay €276 each while the 2 men paid €150."
Pros: "I liked doing immigration in Dublin rather than Chicago, even though the process was lengthy. We couldn't understand why, having done the automated system, the process was virtually repeated at the immigration desk. Queues were very long."
Cons: "As above plus my husband's seat arm was broken. The inflight entertainment system was a joke. Back of seat screens fitted but not working. Very distant ceiling screens and only one working before the whole system failed. Not acceptable on a long flight."
Pros: "The opening of a rear exit door. Using the stairs and then walking across the tarmac to get to the terminal is much better than wasting a lot of time waiting to use the jetway."
Cons: "no real problems."
Pros: "We had an adequate amount of room and were treated as valued customers. Enough said!"
Pros: "From the moment I arrived I felt very taken care of. Plenty of seating in lounge, with many of them facing runway. People were friendly and accommodating. Food was average. On aircraft, the staff was outstanding."
Pros: "The biz class seat was good."
Cons: "Disorganized / messy check-in."
Pros: "Nice, new clean aircraft, excellent meal service, very very friendly crew, top notch the minute we got on plane"
Cons: "Two major problems, when we went to check in, we stood in line and were very rudely told by some German British Airways attendent that we couldn't check in with them and that we needed to go to Aer Lingus, this even though our reservations were through British Airways. Second, despite my efforts over a few months to make seat reservations, my daughter and i were separated. Aer Lingus reps in rome fixed that and I was very, very grateful for that, but when we got to the Dublin/Boston leg of our flight, they couldn't or wouldn 't fix the seating issue. On board the plane though, the flight attendents arranged for my daughter and I to sit together. Really upset me that I didn't know until the very last minute, on the plane, whether I was going to be able to sit next to my child."
Pros: "All staff were friendly and helpful"
Cons: "Seats are too close together!"
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "The ladies who checked in our bags were incredibly rude to me, my mother and my husband. On top of that they forgot to add the tags for Rome on our luggage so they got stuck in a connecting flight in Chicago. When we asked the supervisor to tell the people in luggage claim to forward our luggage to Rome when we were in Chicago (because of course the connecting flight only gave us 40 minutes to get to our flight to Rome so we didn't have enoughtrime to check our bags a second time), he said no. What would it have killed the guy to make a simple phone call? The alternative was to wait a day or two to see if maybe we could catch another flight to Rome with our luggage. I've never made a complaint before and I've never really made review because I don't it really accomplishes anything and I'm sure the idiots at American Airlines will never see or care about this, but I was extremely disappointed. They didn't get any empathy from your employees not even an im sorry, and I get that this job is hard but I have the same job too and I suck it up and still try to empathize with my customers. Oh well... it is what it is. The Airlines can do whatever they want."
Pros: "We received an upgrade to Business class that we submitted a bid for -- it was the difference between heaven and the usual too small, too squashed intercontinental experience. The whole experience post-upgrade was top notch, from the service to the food. Thanks, Are Lingus!"
Pros: "Movie options were awesome on such a long flight!"
Pros: "I liked the crew - great team."
Cons: "nability to get seats ahead of time - sat in rear of aircraft - cramped. Seats were uncomfortable for this long flight. I would have liked ability to pay for upgrading seats for more room. In-seat entertainment was glitchy much of the flight."
Cons: "I was unable to change the flight in any way shape or form (even though I requested that weeks in advance). The only alternative was paying $+1000 more to change. While I still had tons of questions of my options (and was calm and polite!), they hung up on me. I ended up not even going on my flight and note being able to cancel my flight. Ridiculous, rude, and plain unpleasant. I will never take this airline again."
Pros: "Crew was friendly. Boarding was efficient."
Cons: "Hard landing."
Pros: "Not much!"
Cons: "Did not like...paying for all drinks. Attendant were not honest when asking them questions. Asked for water never received it. Asking for UNCEF donations. Food was lousy. Movie choices terrible. Music choices terrible."
Pros: "the anticipation of a great flight back to the USA"
Cons: "The reality. The staff were not not at all friendly and chatty in the tradition of Aer Lingus. It felt like I was on an American Airlines flight :("
Pros: "Being seated next to window"
Cons: "I'm not a very large person, and yet found the room I was allowed for seating to be quite tight. Any more than the short flight from London to Dublin makes the flight unbearably cramped. I felt numbness from thinness of seat cushioning, and had to have my shoulder and arm butted up against the person next to me forcing me to sit cockeyed and with arms in unnatural position off the armrest to allow their larger frame space next to me."
Pros: "Friendly efficient crew. Blankets and pillows immediately provided and an extra blanket provided when requested."
Cons: "Wish there were standard headphone jacks available. The sound quality was extremely poor from the headphones provided."
