It was a good flight, everything was great!!! I’m very thankful.

Flight was canceled by Delta at the last minute.

There was no entertainment and there was only a snack for "food." But as it was a two-hour flight, no more was to be expected.

The plane was hot. my seatbelt was too small; of the 4 planes we were on on this trip, this was the only belt I had a problem with. The in-flight entertainment screen was not responsive so it was stuck on one movie the entire flight. This experience was very much unlike any other Delta experience.

Thanks

Pros: "I liked that I was able to check my carry-on to for free"

Cons: "What was there not to like. We were a little bit late but I wasn't in a rush. I planned well ahead. Delta moved my flight from 10 a.m. to 6 a.m. and that was perfectly fine with me."
Pros: "Was initially hoping to fly a US airline but will now look for Aeromexico first. Exceeded my expectations!"
Cons: "The layover in Mexico City was a bit long and the airport was not so great"

Cons: "I was an older plane, it was louder than our flight down to Atlanta. Nothing they could do about it, but a slight annoyance."

Cons: "I really have no negative comments."
Pros: "Landing"
Cons: "The poorly staffed bag check at BTV was maddening. We waited in line for what felt like 15 or more minutes. Boarding was also badly managed and took 20 minutes or so. There was no jetway so passengers had to walk a distance to the plane. The attendants all seemed to be having a bad morning. Not terribly friendly."
Pros: "The help desk personnel was friendly."
Cons: "Due to my first flight being late I missed my second flight. Delta booked me on a flight that was departing 5 hours later instead of the next flight. I had to go and ask to be was put on the stand by list for a sooner flight but not given any priority over the other standby's even though it was Delta's fault that my original flight was late."
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "Had the seat at the very back, which made engine sounds loud for most of the trip"
Pros: "There were only two lines. The economy line took so long because there were many passengers checking in their fish catch boxes. So those of us with only one baggage were lumped with them. There was no option to tag your own bag if you alr day checked in, as it was the same checking and bag drop line."
Cons: "If we were standing in line for a long time, I hope they can increase the number of counters. They can also dispense with the nonsense chitchat. It's not needed, just move it along. The roving staff should to remind those next in line to prepare their documents, it seems the lady at the counter had to ask for photo ID every time!"
Pros: "Friendly and informative flight attendants kept the passengers in reasonable spirit."
Cons: "Left nearly an hour late after confusion related to oversold seats and upgrades. The gate agent entered the plane multiple times. The landing was rough, the brakes were loud."
Cons: "Late starts"
Pros: "Take off and landing was incredibly done. Almost unnoticeable that didn't make me nervous at all."
Pros: "The best stewardesses in the industry."
Pros: "The crew was friendly and accommodating, and service was good"
Cons: "I purchased a basic economy ticket and upon checking in, my Delta app said my seat was unassigned and I had to get my boarding pass at the airport. I checked back later and the app had me as number 7 on the standby list. I called Delta (wait time 3+ hours... my flight was in 3), and then the Delta app support where I was able to get through to someone. She told me that the ticket I purchased over a month in advance did not guarantee me a seat on the plane (???). She said that if I was bumped from the flight they would reschedule me for the next morning. She was pretty rude and made it seem like I had a 50/50 shot of getting on this plane. I rushed to the airport in hopes that I would be the first from Standby there, and the gate agent told me that I was fine and would board right after first class and be assigned a seat then. Great. Once I got my seat assignment, I board to find out there is someone else sitting in my seat...... They eventually called the desk and had her moved, but it was the weirdest boarding experience I've had.. and I've flown Spirit. These planes that Delta fly's are SO OLD. Both times I have flown Delta the "turbulence" has been so bad and cold air was blowing right on my the whole flight with no option to turn it off (it wasn't from one of the vents, but from the side). Someone close to me works for Delta and I know for a fact that some of their engines blow mid-flight.. and they tell the passengers that it's turbulence.. so that doesn't make me feel very safe. I won't fly Delta again if there is another comparable option."
Pros: "As a frequent flyer, I get picky. Crew was awesome. Helpful and friendly. The wifi was horrendous and wouldn't connect"
Cons: "Flight attendants were a little snobby and didn't treat all passengers equally, in my humble opinion (note: I was sitting in 1st class)."
Pros: "Entertainment and screens were awesome - worked perfectly"

Pros: "On time schedule"
Pros: "Always have great experience with Delta flight attendants and staff. The entertainment on mobile phone was a really nice add-on, I had never seen before."
Cons: "Flight was delayed in taking off, waiting for connecting passengers. Plane was old, which is most Delta planes, but this one showed it. The tray table looked like it was from the 70s or 80s. Flying into Midway instead of O'hare was anticlimactic."
Pros: "Crew was very accommodating and friendly."
Pros: "Pleasant crew. Efficient loading and gate-check."
Cons: "No direction to passengers to put phones on flight mode- i had to request my seat mate to do so. No entertainment. Only mini pretzels served."

Cons: "Dozens of high school students screaming and climbing onto seats, crew did not intervene."

Cons: "boarding was running very far behind - considering this is mainly a hub operations carrier - resulted in several passengers missing their connecting flights -"
Pros: "Seating is tight. The crew was great !"
Cons: "As we landed we had to wait on the plane for an hour and a half because another plane (Spirit) was in our “parking spot.” This made it very difficult for people and connecting flights."
Cons: "The overall travel was good, no wifi and the entertainment system had a faulty headphone connection, and no place to charge devices other than through a USB port"
Pros: "Service was great as usual. Food was very good and entertainment options were great so you won't have to be bored throughout the trip."

Cons: "Not enough leg room"
Cons: "Poor food, flight attend and finally baggage missing. Overall experience is extremely bad."

Cons: "Boarding seemed disorganized."
Cons: "Customer service"
Cons: "We did not get two of baggage at the destination."
Pros: "crew were absolutely delightful, full of smiles and doing everything to make you comfortable. seats were fine enough and got some work done and a bit of sleep. first lunch was fresh and tasty, but the second, a burger, was edible, but not much more."
Cons: "tv screens are dated so movies are not as crisp as you find in newer planes. you need a 2 prong audio adapter to use your own headphones."
Pros: "Good Experience"
Cons: "Nothing much"
Cons: "After more than two hours of delay... Initially the flight takes off was at 8:35... Then 21:20... Then 21:50... Then 22:10. Finally we took off at 22:40... Refund our money klm..."
Cons: "Food"
Pros: "Short flight with good communication."
Cons: "Nil to complain."
Pros: "Due to lightening bolt strike our pre-Y2K era plane got switched out with a newer plane with modern media delivery at the seats."
Cons: "This caused a two hour delay in boarding and another 30 minutes on the JFK T4 tarmac. Same crappy headphones so it wasn’t the"
Pros: "The included snacks and the seats."
Cons: "Nothing."
Cons: "Not only was there free food but they tried to sell you a bunch of stuff. Not a moments piece."
Cons: "Our flight was canceled from Amsterdam to Bordeaux and did not receive any direction and had to find alternate flights for ourselves with the personal expense of using our own cell phones. Then our luggage lost for 3 days. Not happy! We ended up flying from Toronto to Paris then to Bordeaux. Lost my upgrade money for seats. Now have to deal with KLM for refund!"

Cons: "lack of meal options"
Pros: "Great smooth flight staff was pleasant and the overall experience was fantastic."

Pros: "Quick and efficient flight. Crew very organized. Great language skills"
Pros: "Captain was updating us with the delay status."
Cons: "You have to be gold to get the priority boarding. In other countries I can do it with my silver status."
Pros: "...The transfer at JFK was terrible"
Pros: "There was no flight! So it's one thing that you have to cancel the flight because of fog; but rebooking us the next day on a flight through New York that doesn't exist, was way below the standard of care I would expect from any airline. Apparently, the NY to LAX flight that KLM booked us on, was only one leg of the flight to Sydney Australia; and according to some airline agreement, only Australian nationals are permitted to take that flight! Running around at JFK from terminal four, to terminal seven, to terminal eight, back to terminal four, to get a flight out, was a bit much considering how tired we were – not to mention hungry, since KLM neglected to provide the kosher meals we had requested with plenty of time – BOTH going to and returning from Europe."
Pros: "Crew very efficient Food was reasonably good Good movie selection"
Cons: "Boarding at AMS was very disorganized. No row boarding for economy, just all at once Lights stay on during the flight, so difficult to sleep"
Pros: "During my first flight from East Midlands England to Amsterdam I lost my baggage by another airlines and the KLM crew was very dedicated and supportive until they found it and check in for me... Many thanks and I wouldn't forget it."
Pros: "Flat bed seats 747 upper deck"
Cons: "Lost my luggage for 7 days"

Flight were delayed which made me miss all the other flights. Bags are still missing from 2 weeks ago. This airline is worse the Spirit Airlines!

Pros: "meal"
Pros: "Seat reassignment went well. Lounge was a pleasant surprise (highly recommend if you fly out of / through Helsinki)"
Cons: "It makes little sense to be on a priority boarding, when you are checked-in, documents checked and …… then wait for 20 or so minutes standing on your feet waiting for actual boarding to begin"
Pros: "The crew is excellent. Very friendly, professional, and helpful. Both on board and at the desk inside the airport. They listen to your needs and respond the best they can. Seats are comfortable enough for Economy. Good selection of movies to watch. The flight was on time and arrived even a little earlier than expected."
Cons: "The food was filling, but not particularly tasty. For those seated toward the back, there was no choice. Although maybe there was no choice to begin with. Normally, on international flights, for the first (bigger) meal at least, you are given two choices, such as meat or vegetarian, beef or chicken. The food itself wasn't great. The salad was below average on both flight, from and to Chicago. So was the desert. Drinks are offered once with each meal in very small glasses. Although there is a bottle of water from the start."
Pros: "Environmentally mindful with some packaging"
Cons: "There were no menu options for vegetarians on either meal. Several screens were not working, despite multiple reboot attempts."
Pros: "Friendly crew. Food was nice."
Cons: "Nothing"
Cons: "I didn't like that seats originally assigned after the flight was booked were changed right before the boarding. This is a nonsense. Why would you do that?! Without notifying prior to check-in."
Pros: "People, service and food were great. Everyone had free blankets, pI'll own and earbuds. Cost was also great."
Cons: "Seats a little tight."
Pros: "Was great on the way to Helsinki and extremely poor on the return trip."
Cons: "Seat pitch was horrible! Almost as bad as United and American. Very uncomfortable!"
Pros: "Airport was very comfortable to be at, Flight Crew was nice and helpful. Great movie selection to my taste. Plane landed"
Cons: "The temperature during the flight made my experience very uncomfortable. It was way too cold. I know that it could get chilly at the board and do take warm clothes with me just in case, but this was way too cold. Neither blanket nor my stuff helped. Another thing - I was sitting in the raw 50, and at the 49th raw crew ran out of chicken with only pasta left. ))) This happens, I get it. I've had it actually happened to me before on British Airways flights too couple of times. So it's not too big of a deal. I just wish that pasta tasted better)))"
Pros: "Crew was awesome. Entertainment was good."
Cons: "Plane was late leaving Helsinki due to broken latch, which made us late getting into Chicago. After landing we waited at least 45 minutes to get to a gate. It took at least 30 minutes to get off the plane and then getting through customs was a nightmare. Arrival board at O'Hare said plane was on time, but listed gate as 0, which of course doesn't exist so our ride home had no idea what was going on or what was taking so long and ended up waiting over three hours for us to get through everything to meet them."
Cons: "They run out of food choices by the time they got to me."
Pros: "The stewardess was really sweet and funny! She was very accomodating even though there was high stress because the flight was late."
Cons: "The flight was 30 minutes late, which made it really hard on a few passengers, myself not included, who had transfers."
Cons: "We had to sit on the runway for a very long time after landing and I missed my connecting flight. It also took a very long time to get a hotel assignment because I was stuck in Chicago overnight. The finnair air agents at ohare were not very understanding or helpful. I was sent from their line to American Airlines and then back again. They were slow. We waited in the line for a long time for someone to come and help us. overall they were not very apologetic regarding the fact that I was stuck there overnight. It took soooo long to get to the hotel. I arrived there well after midnight. Overall it was a very unpleasant experience. I DO NOT UNDERSTAND WHY FLIGHTS ARE BOOKED SO CLOSE TOGETHER. NO LAYOVER TIME IN BETWEEN MEANS MISSED CONNECTIONS! THIS HAPPENED BOTH WAYS ON MY TRIP. VERY ANNOYING"
Pros: "It was interesting that the flight from Helsinki to Chicago served a Indian style dinner comprising of lentils, rice and chickpeas. I liked that too, though I prefer the meditarranean fare. My kids liked the macaroni and meat dinner. The plane was clean and comfortable"
Cons: "The flight attendants could have been a bit more cordial and smiling. The dessert was only a choclate. Would have liked something better. Entertainment needed more variety. Boarding was a bit of a mess as they did not let families board first and were not very accomodative of families with small children, though I had a 9 year old, but there was a family with two very small children and they were not very helpful to them."
Pros: "many choices of films to watch was great too! Like that you served Finnish food!"
Pros: "Entertainment, quick de boarding, food tastes good, free drinks"
Cons: "Extra long boarding process and the air conditioner was broken. We sat there like that for at least 30 minutes. Also, the airline had overbooked so we weren't able to check in the day before and pick our seats. That was a huge inconvenience."
Pros: "see above"
Cons: "see above"
Pros: "Entertainment options were fine. Crew was courteous. Boarding was fast. Flight was on time."
Cons: "Economy seats were more cramped than other international economy flights I have been on. My knees were against the seat in front of me the entire 9-hour flight. There were supposed to be 2 options for meal, but by the time I was served there was only one remaining. The meal itself was passing."
Pros: "Boarding and de-boarding was quick"
Cons: "We had a very rude male flight attendant that argued with us when they didn't have a vegetarian meal for my wife even though we checked that box when buying our tickets. My wife ate two bread rolls for dinner before the next meal 7 hours later. Later, when the second meal was served, he muttered a smart assed reply to my wife after he handed her food to her. After that meal service he offered everyone coffee except us."
Cons: "The entertainment kept shutting off, and the crew had to reset it about 5 times. They were very apologetic, and kept trying until finally getting it fixed."
Pros: "The food was surprisingly pretty good"
Cons: "It was an old plane (A330-300). The seats are not very comfy, not much leg-room, and not very stable (i.e., when others are getting up in front or behind you)"
Pros: "Finnair lost my luggage on my way to Sweden. However, they upgraded my seat to Business class during my flight home from Helsinki. It was great!"
Pros: "The gluten free meal was pretty bad."
Pros: "Crew service is excellent"
Cons: "Sitting in the cramped economy seats was a 9 hour torture"
Cons: "We paid for economy comfort and signed up for the 2x2 seats. Instead we received the 2 seats in the middle of 4. we were more than upset, there is no way we would every request the 2 worst seats in that area and given my husband is 6'6' Did not make for a happy experience."
Cons: "Plane too small. Avoiding Airbus jets from now on!"
Cons: "Wasn't given vegetarian option for food and don't eat meat."
Pros: "The seat back video screen"
Cons: "not enough room...to tight. I'm a smaller person and it was too cramped. The food was inedible."
Cons: "I don't understand when a reason for flight delay is no aircraft. Wasn't it a scheduled flight? The €8 voucher is only enough to buy one glass of juice."
Pros: "The crew was courteous."
Cons: "Another passenger dropped a very heavy suitcase on my head. I have never been afraid for my safety before, but this time I was. I wasn't seriously hurt but what really upsets me is that the other person wasn't even reprimanded. Also, that suitcase was way too heavy and I'm surprised this person was allowed to board the plane with it. Also, boarding was horrible and the flight was late. I will never forget this experience and would avoid flying with Finnair ever again! This was really the worst flight I have ever experienced!"
Cons: "Could not watch any video on screen. Crew tried to reboot my and my partner's screens but they did not work for the 9-hour flight."
Pros: "Friendly and helpful crew"
Cons: "Boarding process was caotic. We were delayed boarding and arriving. No explanation. Meal selection ran out by row 46 (of 57?) Not choosing finnair to fly with again"
Cons: "This flight was delayed 5 and a half hours and did not arrive into Chicago until almost midnight."
Pros: "I was surprised with an amount of drinks and food provided.Everything was delicious, and we were very hungry so imagine our happy faces. The crew was professional in all ways.Flight was smooth and comfortable-applause for the pilots!"
Pros: "One cool things is that some of the moveis were translated with several different languages in addition to English and Europearn languages."
Cons: "Distance between the seats are short and seats are somehow uncomfortable."
Pros: "Excellent service, professional service, good food that I did not have to pay for. Good flight, would take Finnair again."
Cons: "They answered my question professionally. As I disembarked the plane in Chicago I asked whether Finnair had armed guards. I was not detained, and was not questioned. The crew told me Finnair does not have them but I don't think they appreciated the question."
Pros: "never happened"
Pros: "The flight came on time and arrived in Chicago on time. The crew were friendly."
Cons: "The sound was out on my chair, so there was no sound to the movies. The food was really kind of junky and I decided against eating most of it so I wouldn't make myself sick. The meals could really do with more produce and a few more vegan options."
Pros: "Spacious, on time and smooth"
Cons: "There were no vegetarian options and I was unsure where to select a meal preference. This means that I did not eat anything for the duration of the flight....."
Pros: "The dinner tray was actually one of the best I ever had in a plane (except maybe for the bread). Flight was comfortable overall, I was just a little too hot, with no individual air vent."
Cons: "A little too hot, and no WI-FI. Other than that, great flight."
Pros: "Boarded, departed on time arrived early. Food was good snd served timely. Attendents were very friendly"
Pros: "It was an Iberia flight, sold by Finnair. Pretty full but I had two seats by window to myself. I really liked the personal entertainment system at each seat, with lots of choices for viewing and listening, plus usb port for charming my phone. Food was not bad for economy class airplane food. Crew was efficient."
Cons: "A bit cramped - could have used more leg room. But not the worst I've had."
Cons: "I had a seat on an aisle, which was good. But, the TV / video screen did not work. Luckily there wasn't a passenger next to me, and I used that screen. I told the steward, but never got help with the screen. I had to " Lean " for the 9 hours. The bathrooms became gross after 5 hours. I don't need to explain."
Pros: "It seems a bit unfair to rate Finnair, when the flight was serviced by Iberia...that being said - everyone seemed to be put out by any request or basic question. The movies were really good and (UNLIKE the flight from Chicago to Madrid, where i was told they didn't do that) the stewardess on the flight home didn't mind giving me a second glass of wine."
Cons: "the people at the boarding desk in O'Hare were rude & indifferent. The flight attendants on way to Spain were non-existant The food was comically awful!!! The man at the check-in desk in Madrid could not have been ruder or less helpful (Hopefully for his wife's sake!) The food on the way home again was unfortunate.....that can NOT possibly be the best food any company can find in Spain. Hell - wed have been better off with a cheese & ham plate with some bread!!"
Pros: "The flight was so-so. Cramped seating with mediocre food."
Cons: "The problem I had was the multiple email updates from Kayak with the wrong departure time. Fortunately, I checked with American directly. Even after the flight departed I was getting emails that I still had four hours left. Doesn't make sense."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Flight cancelled after 5h at the airport. Impossible to be booked before 5days..."
Pros: "I cannot say enough about how kind, caring and paitent the flight crew was with not only me but others I saw around me. Kudos!!!"
Pros: "Great flight, crew was very nice. I would rebook with British airways."
Pros: "Everything was fantastic! I was upgraded to first class for the first time in my life so that was an added bonus. The crew were great, extremely friendly and attentive. Overall good experience."

Flight from Chicago to Los Angeles was terrible On my ticket said economy plus which that is what I paid for but didn’t get a seat As economy plus

Pros: "Fuck Kayak for stealing my money and not allowing me to fly. I hope you lose all your business and force to shutdown."
Cons: "Kayak are nothing but fraud. Pure fraud. Took my money and I didn’t get the chance to travel."
Pros: "No complaints."
Pros: "I've flown SAS a few times and have always been favorably impressed with the service. On this flight we booked the "bare bones" fare and paid extra for checked bags and extra-legroom seats. The overall cost was still better than most other airlines."
Pros: "Crew was amazing, flight was on time, and entertainment was available."
Cons: "They seats were cramped and didn’t have a lot of cushion. The BBQ chicken lunch was not good. There needed to be more frequent water available"
Pros: "The crew was nice and the food was good."
Cons: "More entertainment options"
Pros: "Check in at the airport gate was handled professionally."
Cons: "Bought our seats 2 months in advance. One day before flight, saw our assigned seats were changed, someone had our original seats 31G/H, and we were put in 48C/D. Could not get any assistance to correct the situation until we were at the gate and by that time no comparable seats were available. Also, my husband spilled his drink; one of the attendants said he was too busy to help with cleanup. Fortunately, another attendant came over after my husband went to the galley to again ask for assistance."
Cons: "SAS is a train wreck. everything they told us was misinformation from the first delay (there were 5 delays, one each hour, before they cancelled) The whole time they would not allow ticket changes while we watched available flights take off for 5 hours. We had no say in the rebooking - they just said wait you will get an email. The SAS workers need to be trained - how about putting up a sign that says "this line for parking vouchers ony'ly" when 300 people are lined up for assistance."
Pros: "On time."
Cons: "The cabin crew was detached, and curt."
Pros: "Flight left on time, plane was clean, the entertainment was good, and the food was good. The crew in this flight were polite and responsive."
Pros: "A lot of leg room"
Cons: "No snack served before dinner, no choice of dinner food. over see flight and the only food is dinner??? My laggage had priority tag but got out last and in resolt of it I missed the connecting flight to Boston!!! Damaged laggage"
Cons: "Old screens and poor movies selection, tight leg space, not really offered much to drink."
Cons: "Flight delayed, had to take 2 other flights to get to the final destination. Arrived at 9pm instead of 2pm."
Cons: "Tried to call sas , no phone answered after 730 in Copenhagen, forced to buy my own ticket to leave early am as their incompetent sas transfer desk couldn’t find me a flight in am yet I was able on kayak.com. They refused to pay for it."
Cons: "I had requested an aisle seat and on both flights to and from Stockholm and Chicago had to sit on the very last row in the middle seat between 2 people who seemed to exceed the "weight allowance" that seem so important now when you flight unless you spend a lot a money on the ticket and it then becomes irrelevant !!"
Pros: "Scandinavian hospitality showed through all the way. Kind, sharp, attractive staff, prompt service."
Cons: "Space is always going to be something I don't like. Meanwhile most of the plane in 1st class sits wide open. Expand business class."
Cons: "since all tickets and passports are checked in advance and do not need to be scanned again when boarding, they really should start boarding from the back of the aircraft (after all the business, first-class, and priority folks) because it would really speed things up the main meal was good, but the snack was much smaller compared to my flight from Chicago to Stockholm"
Pros: "I was very comfortable in the new seats, I did not have to recline or move for over eight hours"
Cons: "still there is not enough legroom for tall persons"
Pros: "Highly efficient, no problems at all."
Cons: "I wouldn't mind a complimentary wine with dinner - other good airlines like to offer me a white wine with my chicken but here you have to pay for it.... Other than that I was happy with my travel!"
Pros: "Cannot think of anything."
Cons: "I am a road warrior and my job requires me to travel 100% of the time around the world. This was the first international flight I've been on where even small snacks such as peanuts or pretzels are for purchase only. Plus the flight attendants seem to be disorganized and in rush. I will never use SAS again."
Cons: "Got delayed 13-hours in an airport with no SAS staff present to communicate anything to all of the passengers. We were not accommodated with hotel vouchers or provided with alternative travel options to our final destinations and missed flights. SAS did not cancel the flight after the first 4-hours of delay which is illegal by EU Standards. None of us were able to leave the airport as we were not told any information about potential flight departure times and it would have been $2000 to re-book with a different airline. No answers were given by SAS over the phone and their staff seemed unaware of any problems."
Cons: "The seat next to me was open and they moved someone over next to me."
Pros: "The movie selection"
Cons: "To be boarded and wait for more than 45 minutes inside the plane for a second pilot."
Cons: "This is my first international flight that didn't include complimentary beverages. No free wine or alcohol, and only ONE complimentary beverage on the entire 9 hour flight! They only came around ONCE with the beverage cart! (and this was like an hour and a half before they served dinner, which didn't include a drink). They also only came around and offered water ONCE on the flight. Normally this would be every 1-2 hours. Also, the flight was delayed by about 2 hours, and they didn't make an announcement until we were about an hour late. Thankfully, I was getting updates from Kayak, or else I wouldn't have even known we were delayed."
Pros: "Legroom"
Pros: "My flight was more pleasant from Stockholm to Chicago because I was able to purchase an upgrade to Plus."
Pros: "The crew and the flight and the booking etc. is all very good and easy. I greatly trust and enjoy SAS"
Cons: "The crew and the flight and the booking etc. is all very good and easy. I greatly trust and enjoy SAS The one hour wait in line directly to get in at the gate is a bit odd, to board the plane. For me the seats are about 2 inches short and legroom and I just don't have space for my legs"
Pros: "The boarding process worked well."
Cons: "The crew didn't seem to care much. The entertainment systems didn't really work and the response was simply deal with it. The food was terrible. The crew did not handle the passengers at all as they were up consistently and taking stuff out of the overhead containers."
Pros: "Space between rows of seats was excellent"
Cons: "No options in menu. No free wine, beer and other spirits."
Pros: "Everything was good"
Cons: "Everything was good"
Pros: "Great food, smooth trip"
Cons: "Could use bigger movie selection"
Pros: "There was enough space for your legs, there were blankets and pillows which is nice for a long flight. The individual entertainment screen is preferable for a long flight, so you can watch a movie of your own choice."
Cons: "There were two diner options, chicken or cod, and I was just given the cod without having an option to choose."
Cons: "SAS does not even offer wine with the meal, you have to pay for it. Additionally they have the strange policy that they give drinks at frost, that is ALL drinks, including the meal drinks, and then comes the meal about half an hour later. The do not offer ANY drinks with the meal."
Pros: "One of the best we've experienced--very comfortable very spacious seats , The crew is very attentive and accommodating. We were fed three times and was offered beverages frequently."
Cons: "NONE"
Pros: "Much roomier than united"
Pros: "Was upgraded to business class"
Cons: "Because the airport was under construction, the area to wait to board was very barren and without bathrooms. We had to take a very crowded bus to the airplane."
Pros: "They checked my mobility scooter at the plane door, put it underneath and brought it back up to the plane door in Chicago. WHAT service!"
Cons: "I did NOT like the fact that this was NOT true in Copenhagen. I checked my mobility scooter at the plane door, they put it underneath, but was met by a man who said he was going to take me to pick up the scooter (in the baggage claims area--after I was promised in Chicago that it would be at the plane door when I arrived in Copenhagen). Made me get in an enlarged golf cart, and took me to the "transfer area" -- where I had to get into a wheel chair -- for the rest of the journey to the baggage claim area. Then he stood there waiting for a tip that was to NEVER come!"
Pros: "Entertainment system is very good - like 100 movies on demand even games available."
Cons: "Economy seats had little leg room; weren't offered a choice of entrees Make sure you call ahead if you need vegetarian meals."
Pros: "Your entertainment and SAS TV as well as landscape camera were great. Your pilots did a great job with getting us home extra fast inspire of boarding delay. I liked the crew a little more on tbd way to Sweden than on the way to Chicaho"
Cons: "Boarding was a little strange. Not sure why the gate stayed closed up until boarding time so passengers had to stand in line until actual boarding instead of being able to sit and relax. Also not sure why we weren't permitted to check in online like previous."
Pros: "The food is great, the flight attendants are great, and the flight is comfortable."
Cons: "There is little legroom unless you are in first class."
Pros: "I requested a gluten free meal and was happy with it."
Cons: "leg room was a bit tight"
Pros: "Comfortable seating in PLUS"
Cons: "The flight didn't even exist because of a strike and neither kayak nor SAS informed us the flight was canceled, so we found out after we got to the airport."
Cons: "The crew could ask people who does not have a rush connecting schedule to stay at seat and let those who has a rough schedule to get off first. UA did this, but SAS did not."
Pros: "Everything was great! And it got better because of all the amenities we had because of the delay :)"
Pros: "The seats were comfy and the food was good. Air temperature was pleasant, not too war, or cold."
Cons: "Was no offered water during the flight. We had a bottle of water in the seat pocket but at no point during the flight were we offered additional water. I saw people get up and ask for some but when the flight is 9 hours you would think they would come by once or twice offering some. Other airlines do this and I love it. I was so thirsty when getting off the flight that I downed 2 bottles of water at the airport. They also didn't offer complimentary alcohol. Other international flights offer an alcoholic drink with your meal free of charge and I appreciate that. I have a bit of anxiety when I fly and that helps take the edge off. I was really disappointed in this. Heck, Air Berlin comes around and refills your wine glass multiple times."
Pros: "Better"
Pros: "The food was good and it was nice to have headphones, blanket and pillow provided."

Pros: "Entire trip was easy and comfortable."
Cons: "Surprised one flight that from what it looked to be, once flight took off a older couple came out of the cockpit are and took a seat in business class. I thought I had seen someone in civilian clothes setting in a area right behind the pilots chair. They did return to cockpit area near end of flight"

Pros: "The food, entertainment, and service. Waited for me after almost missing my flight."
Cons: "Nothing."
Pros: "Good cabin, but very conjugated :|"
Cons: "Too much of hassle checking in as the airlines partners with a couple of other airlines like Jet Airways, WestJet & Aircanada. The food was just okay and the cabin crew refused to serve extra butter. When you are serving extra bread, make sure you serve the butter as well. How could someone eat bread by itself?"

Pros: "Food and service"
Cons: "Too many business class seats and the plane is so big it basically feels like flying on coach. You have two seats next to the window so it's exactly the same when trying to get up than in economy class with a passenger stuck next to you"
