Pros: "Craig in first cabin flight crew was amazing. :))))"
Cons: "We were bussed to the plane, there were long dark hairs on my pillow, and they are generous with snacks at close intervals, but the food could be much better. The ideas are cute, but the actual food is pretty basic, which is disappointing for Virgin, who I hold in high regard. Or did."
Pros: "The roomie seats, the USB port, and in flight entertainment"
Cons: "Child free section"
Pros: "I liked the movies"
Cons: "Crew helping everyone be more courteous to people sleeping. Group of guys being loud in the back of the plane while I was trying to sleep"

Pros: "Virgin Atlantic offers good service at a reasonable price to/from the US to London. Good food service and unbelieveable number of movies and entertainment to choose from."
Cons: "The seating and leg room in economy classic were inadequate. We felt way too confined in our seats and the leg room was a joke. I am only 6' tall and this was unacceptable. We will try to upgrade for the return trip."

Pros: "Friendly crew, clean, well presented cabin."
Cons: "Flight was late (again). Food was very little for an international service (small packet of pretzels + savoury muffin."
Pros: "Nothing. The whole experience was horrible."
Cons: "I didn't make it to Siem Reap because the first leg of the trip from IAD to London was cancelled by Virgin Atlantic after it was fully boarded. The excuse was that a flight attendant had food poisoning and was unable to fly and so the entire flight was cancelled. The Virgin team seemed unconcerned and showed NO sense of urgency to try and get people rebooked. Their solution was to rebook everyone on an evening flight the next day. If a passenger was only going to London, that was probably fine. But for people with connecting flights -- or like me with multiple connecting flights -- that wasn't acceptable."
Pros: "Crew was very solicitous...food was quite good.."
Cons: "Baggage was very slow in arriving. ..45-60 minutes"
Pros: "Talk about an awesome experience. I loved the friendly staff and the accommodations were superb. I could ask for no better. Even the food was excellent."
Cons: "I have nothing but praise."
Pros: "Nothing really!"
Cons: "I was coming from Sydney and I have to hurry up to take the other fly to Newark and didn’t have time to buy for nothing to eat but I was very surprised they didn’t offer me anything on the plane and when I ask they I have buy it online and didn’t have many choices anyway, I very disappointed with this fly."

Cons: "Entertainment screens were of poor quality"
Pros: "This is my new favorite airline. I loved the staff and all the amenities. I was so comfortable and the food choices were great. I felt like I was cared for and my comfort mattered."
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: "Very comfortable and spacious seats, good air circulation and friendly crew."
Cons: "Food and wine selections were limited and only mediocre. We flew economy plus."
Pros: "nice new seats"
Cons: "The entre food top was torn, apparently opened before I got it, also there was no salad dressing. ATTN RICHARD BRANSON: Are you concerned for our environment? The head stewardess would not refill my sports water bottle after I asked her nicely, instead she poured water into a cup which she threw away, wasting plastic unnecessarily. I told her I did not like wasting plastic and she appeared to not enjoy what I had to say. This was the same lady who handed me my dinner. Rest of crew was great."
Pros: "Staff excellent , as always."
Cons: "It was impossible to sleep as the plane seemed extremely cold and was very noisy."
Pros: "Crew is well trained and efficient. Lounge food and service are excellent."
Cons: "Podlike seating in business class. Someone thought the zigzag a way of ensuring privacy. In fact you can't talk to your travel companion nor look out a window. Seats are either up or down and only a crew member can operate them."
Pros: "From check in to landing in London, the gracious, helpful crew impressed us with their attitude and service"
Cons: "Sound didn't work on some of the entertainment choices"
Cons: "More than one hour delated"
Pros: "reservations easy to make (like most other airlines) A water bottle, blanket, headset & sleep kit on each seat. Seats were not so close together in coach that your knees were against your chin if the guy in front of you put his seat back. The planes I was on To/from LAX-BNE felt very spacious because of the interior height. 2 free checked bags."
Cons: "The food was mediocre--doughy stuff for both meals Not very tasty. The entertainment selection was nowhere near as good as on other airlines. Very Australia-heavy music, old films & TV shows available, as well as some new ones. But no live TV channels, not even current news."
Pros: "Flight crew were awesome! I got super sick with Bali belly and the crew did everything in their ability to comfort me."
Cons: "Sitting in the galley vomiting for 6h. Flight was completely packed since flights the day before had been canceled, but a full flight isn't really something you can complain about."
Pros: "Very happy with everything"
Cons: "Air conditioning"
Pros: "Entertainment had a good selection"
Cons: "Seat very narrow. I'm a 5'5" 135 lb female."
Pros: "Everything was excellent. Food, service, attendant, on-time etc,"
Pros: "Plane was new or newly appointed interior. Bin space very adequate. Lavatory larger than usual. Crew was friendly. Dinner choices good and quality better than norm in American carriers."
Cons: "Snack and breakfast were odd, centered somewhat on dairy products (annoying if lactose intolerant)."
Pros: "Everything on-board was awesome...Great job guys!!!"
Pros: "The veg meal - paneer, rice, lentils - was absolutely delicious. In fact, all of the food was great."
Cons: "Slight problem with the movie viewing - the screen kept going blank every minute or two throughout, and had to be touched to restart. Only on the films, though; the TV episodes were fine."
Cons: "Very uncomfortable seats, food was bad"
Pros: "Great service, comfortable and punctual"
Cons: "45 minute delay on runway after landing was very very frustrating."
Pros: "The staff was nice. Boarding was quick and easy. Flight left on time and arrived early. Although the entertainment system had many options, going through lists and playing games required a lot of tapping, and in some cases pushing to make the system work. I felt like I had a woodpecker sitting behind me pushing on my head non-stop for over two hours. I was starting to go insane! Besides, it was so loud near the back of the plane that I couldn't hear anything through my cheap headphones."
Cons: "We could not eat any of the food. My son, my husband and I do not eat and/or are allergic to gluten, dairy, corn, soy and other food additives - as I mentioned above. Please have an option of food not swimming in sauces or cheeses. Plain organic chicken breast with steamed rice pilaf and steamed carrots would be nice. Maybe some steamed red potatoes and a piece of steak. An organic green apple for dessert. Forget the gluten, dairy, sugar or sauces that ruin a perfectly good ham or chicken and lettuce, tomato wrap! Or a salad swimming in dressing. We need to eat protein, not gluten for breakfast. Why not a hard boiled head!"
Pros: "New boarding system of putting your hand luggage on ready was good."
Cons: "You have to pay for food and entertainment even though flight over 4 hours."
Pros: "I highly appreciated the kind care of all the staff in the plane; especially the great selection of food. Thank you very much! For a plane it was really 5 * service."
Cons: "the correspondence between the staff. On my way to New York, I was brought to the lounge to wait until my boarding will start but nobody picked me up as promised, so I had to walk the way. I needed a wheel chair as well on my way back, extra ordered it at the check in, they said it is noted in the system. But nobody was there to pick me up. When I finally found someone, I was brought to a place, being asked to sit down and wait where I still had to pass stairs to come to the passport controll. From there noone picked me up, so I had to go my way alone with pain in my leg. I don't want to argue, I managed it even with pain but I wonder what happens with people if they cannot walk anymore at all. My advice would be that you work on to improve this service. We extra booked business class but this service was not worth being called business class."
Cons: "The only kosher foodi is no good must change"
Cons: "The ONLY thing I hate about Turkish Airlines is the necessity to go through security in Istanbul when you're in transit on an international flight. Not only do you have to go through security again - with the serious chance of missing a connection - but if it's a flight to the USA, there is serious additional security at the gate. Surely this is enough."
Pros: "They boarded on time, took off on time, and the service was friendly."
Cons: "Nothing really."
Pros: "never turkish airlines ever again!"
Cons: "never turkish airlines ever again!"
Cons: "To whom this may concern: I am writing to express my absolute dissatisfaction and poor experience with the customer service and lack of working amenities on flight #TK11 leaving Istanbul into New York City, JFK. It was sadly a horrible ending to my trip and left me with a very unfortunate impression of Turkish Airlines. Less than an hour into the flight I spoke with a flight attendant making him aware that the USB port was not working so I was unable to charge my phone the entire flight. In addition, the wifi was not working. This is a huge problem because I planned on working remotely that day and my job was under the same presumption. The attendant blamed my phone and did not take my word that I was unable to connect until I insisted further and another passenger in front of me turned to my rescue and agreed with me stating the wifi was spotty and only worked for a short period of time until ultimately shutting off. The attendant did not apologize but said he would check on the port and the wifi and would get back to me. I followed up several times and he fed me the same lines until I grew frustrated that I was being completely ignored all while losing a day's work. During the last 20 minutes of the flight I decided to finally walk to the back of the plane and follow up for the last time with someone else. I explained the situation to the other attendant who seemed as though this was the first time he was hearing about this issue and he spoke to his chief who gave me a customer feedback form to fill out. No one offered me a different window seat to fix the port problem or even Miles Plus points for the inconvenience even though I requested it. I have never felt more disrespected and dismissed on a flight before this experience. As a star alliance member (CX765361), I frequently fly for work and personal trips and out of loyalty and assurance that I would be able to fulfill my work duties remotely given the features this airline promotes. I chose Turkish Airlines because it was apart of this program. This experience did not uphold the company's reputation and by flying with Turkish Airlines I completely missed a full day's work, deadlines and was behind when I physically returned to work. For the inconvenience, stress, disrespect and empty promises, I am requesting that Turkish Airlines reimburse me the portion of that flight. Best, Rachael"
Pros: "The staff was courteous and helpful"
Cons: "The air temperature was warm and the food was not good. The choices were not available. I just ate bread and butter."
Cons: "Luggage was held back in Istanbul. It was broken into and never made it to NYC. They shipped to Texas at which point it had been opened and rifled through. Unprofessional."
Pros: "The crew bumber was short fot the full flight. The food used to be better in THY."
Pros: "This is the shittiest airline. The flight from delhi to istanbul was canceled due to bad weatherBut their customer service is very pathetic. Their was no intimation in a proper manner. They did not try me to adjust in any of their airline. I had to book another flight at a very high price. This is really insane... i will like my entire refund of the journey..."
Cons: "This is the shittiest airline. The flight from delhi to istanbul was canceled due to bad weatherBut their customer service is very pathetic. Their was no intimation in a proper manner. They did not try me to adjust in any of their airline. I had to book another flight at a very high price. This is really insane... i will like my entire refund of the journey..."
Cons: "I missed this flight also and tried to get a refund for it because the times were not good for me."
Cons: "The flight was cancelled and 36 hours later, I am stuck at a hotel with 100s of other people none of who have a clue how to contact the airline as all the phones are not being attended to. The Indian sales and reservation team as well as the Turkish customer care are not responding to the situation at all."
Cons: "Late baggage"
Pros: "US government sends out travel advisories in timely fashion"
Cons: "Turkish airlines is overwhelmed with schedule changes. They behave in a manner not respecting the gravity of the situation and the need for people to get home. For example, they rescheduled our flights but did not confirm or ticket our flights. They should use all resources to get us home but won't let us fly on Star Alliance code share flights."
Pros: "Turkish Airlines was the best experience I've ever had in economy, and I've traveled all over the world. Food, service, and entertainment choices were excellent. Thanks!"
Pros: "I enjoyed the options for entertainment on board. The staff were all polite and professional. The meals were satisfying and the drink choices were great."
Cons: "I was seated next to someone who moved a lot when the slept and the handrail barrier was not enough to keep me safe from involuntary jabs. Also, the touch screen wasn't working properly but after a few trial and errors, I realized that I could use the remote as an alternative to the touch screen."
Pros: "The food and service, generally, were all quite good, as I have come to expect from Turkish Airlines. Turkish Airlines remains my preferred airline for all travel."
Cons: "The server handling my section of the aircraft seemed slower and less experienced, but this did not have a significant impact on my experience. The temperature in the cabin seemed to fluctuate quite a bit and my entertainment screen froze and seemed to shut down halfway through the flight."
Pros: "I was very comfortable as there were empty seats in my row and I could sleep a bit. Also I have a bad hip and the extra room was very helpful for adjusting my position as needed. food was good and staff pleasant. I enjoyed 2 movies."
Cons: "The bathroom facility which I used on the plane was very dirty at the time I used it."
Pros: "Everything was great"
Pros: "It was great trip. Great movie selection"
Cons: "More drink service would be nice"
Pros: "On time, food was good but can be better."
Cons: "Space for legs too short, for long hour flight better use bigger plane with bigger space inside."
Cons: "The airport"
Pros: "Excellent service!!!"
Cons: "There was nothing to not like about it."
Cons: "My connecting flight was cancelled twice then delayed. I ended up missing my connection in Istanbul and having to overnight there. Turkish Airlines did provide hotel accommodation to passengers in similar situation, however only after wondering around the airport for over an hour to find the TK hotel desk and waiting for an additional hour to be assigned a hotel room and be transferred there, only to learn that I had to check out within two and a half hours after checking in to be at the airport 4 hours before the flight departs. When I finally arrived at the airport, I had to go through a security screening (because I was not suspicious for having entered the country and exiting only 5 hours later). When all of that was done, I approach the check in desk and asked if my seat can be changed, as I had spent the previous 2 days trying to get on my connecting flight, spending over 8 continuous hours at an airport and having had a nightmare night. I asked for an exit row seat or anything in the front of the plane. I was literal told that if I did not like the seat given I did not have to fly. I took the seat originally assigned and spent 11 and a half hours sitting next to a toilette on the airplane with a crying baby next to me and in front of me. To top it all, it took 2 hours to get my luggage once arrived at JFK. I usually love traveling on Turkish airlines and I understand not all of the above is directly depending on them, but considering how awful the entire experience was and how little I asked to be happy, I found them to be extremely unaccommodating on this occasion."
Cons: "flight had hours of delays barely anyone speaks or understands English.. Lack of help from everywhere from checking in to boarding to take off won't recommend to anyone."
Pros: "The food, the stuff for sleeping"
Cons: "The boarding: too much stand by which leads to confusions and anxieties. I personally believed this problem of creating too much stand by could have been prevented in advance."
Pros: "Great movie choices and food"
Cons: "People were screaming because of turbulence and we got zero communication from staff. Terrible on and off boarding. Worst terminal."
Pros: "Business class was great. Comfortable lay flat seat. Tasty food and lots of it. Great entertainment system with endless high quality options."
Cons: "Istanbul airport does not have enough gates to handle their growth in traffic. As a result both my incoming and outgoing flights were embarked by bus from the tarmac. We passed by another 30 planes in the same situation. So it was not a one off."
Cons: "They let passengers on who were not supposed to be on the flight. Consequestnly the flight way massivle delayed as they were trying to sort out the mess with the numbers, wrong passengers. they deboarded one passenger and asked everyone to search their overheaed baggages for foreign things. caused a scare among the passengers but wast fully explained. boarding was very sketchy and felt unsafe, unsecure."
Cons: "No luggage arrived for 60 people or more. On my first flight to Sofia from Istanbul i miss my flight for technical reasons and then from Istanbul to NY no suitcases arrived. Just terrible experience. Never ever again will travel with Turkish Airlines. They suck!!!!"
Pros: "The hospitality"
Pros: "The food plentiful, and the entertainment excellent."
Cons: "Seats so not comfortable. Boarding always takes forever and this flight takes off late, Every time. Sigh."
Cons: "We were asked to board and then sat on the plane for 6 hours while they de-iced the plane, waited for a new pilot, and replaced the food. It made our 11 hour trip close to 17 hours and was very uncomfortable."
Cons: "airport dselay 4 hours - due to snow; boarding in buses - very slow"
Pros: "Everything was amazing! Like flying first class for a coach price!"
Pros: "Crew was pleasant. Food was excellent. Travel necessities bag was lovely and very useful!"
Cons: "Customer Service at the New York airport was rude and not professional. I missed my flight due to the day beforeThanksgiving traffic and the customer service representative did not show any empathy or compassion. She wanted to charge me a full price. I had to beg her to help me and look for other options."
Pros: "Respect service comfort"
Cons: "The food was terrible and caused me continued stomach problems for days and the entertainment system broke mid flight...."
Pros: "The departure was on-time The flight was smooth and quiet"
Cons: "Meal was tasteless No tea was available during the most part of the flight, and at the end, when tea was served, it was too dark and strong No green tea was available at all"
Pros: "the first meal was very good for airline food. The second meal, okra over rice, was a joke. Not even sure why they bothered."
Pros: "The gift bag designed for comfort was phenomenal!"
Cons: "The staff on this particular flight weren't the friendliest."
Pros: "The staff was very nice and the food quite decent. Best of all was that the flight was half-empty."
Cons: "It was one of these new planes that you now see all over Europe where the seat backs are half as thick as the old ones - basically what you'd find on a bus. Not that awful if you're doing a 2-hour flight somewhere, but on an 11-hour one (Istanbul to JFK) they are excruciatingly uncomfortable."
Pros: "Lots of free space on this particular flight to sleep."
Cons: "There were no toiletry offered on this flight."
Pros: "Awesome food. Good choice of alcoholic beverages, great entertainment."
Cons: "One of the worst knee room."
Pros: "Crew was excellent"
Cons: "Very cramped leg space"
Pros: "1) Turkish Air's online check-in, seat selection and printing of boarding pass was efficient and effective 2) The standard VEGETARIAN meals (non-vegan) were always fresh, very tatstey and properly warmed (when appropriate) 3) The flight attendants were: > Comfortable speaking with me in English (a native American English speaker). We had no trouble understanding each other. > Always courteous, congenial and helpful in their passenger interactions, including at check-in counter"
Pros: "FROM THE TURKISH DELIGHTS to the amazing choice of food and drinks all the movies to watch flying with turkish airlines was amazing!!! considering the prices for the tickets beat every airline out there and it was like a week before departure!! incredible just incredible no complaints at all!!"
Cons: "absolutely no complaints at all"
Cons: "General disorganization.Instead of boarding by zone or rows,called all passengers at once.Very poor discipline.Locals just walk in.Chaos.Also usually when they need my services on Flights they give points or at least say thank you.I do not know what happened to the patient.Two of us had come up when they called for help.Both from the States and they did not have anybody else."
Cons: "After we boarded and were already sitting in our sits the stewardess came and removed our bags from the overhead compartment for another person with a larger bag! We ended up storing our bags under the sits in-front. The way it was done it was rude and with no consideration for our comfort."
Cons: "They cancelled my flight. I never flew home. I missed my little Sister's graduation. :o("
Cons: "The connecting flight from Atlanta to NY was rescheduled for an hour and fifteen minutes later, boarding for the delayed flight started late, closed doors were another 20 minutes late, spend another hour or so waiting for confirmations, during which no AC is on because of a malfunction on the plane with the electricity unit. Due to rough air conditions, no in-flight service, or very limited one - and all of those are fine by me, and not the airlines' fault at all. But then, during all these unexpected conditions, I can't even use the in flight entertainment system as i use Bluetooth earphones, and to get earphones I have to buy them for 2$. To earn excellent service, inspite of all the delays, AC malfunction and unpleasantness all you had to do was give those 2$ earphones for free. I have another flight with SkyTeam coming up and I do hope it won't be as unpleasant as it is a much longer flight."

Cons: "lack of carry on luggage space. very tight. gate agents did not care about the customers. I had to stick my bag under the seat and only half would fit so my feet did not fit with my bag. it was a back pack. I do not prefer checking luggage since I've had so many bad experiences."
Cons: "Sitting as they had to fix a broken plane. Missing my connecting flight and getting in late."
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Pros: "Small plane. Very good service. Did not suffer through the crazy multi level boarding calls that some airlines have. No super secret airline clubs that board first. Flying into the Marine terminal is the best part of the trip."
Cons: "The wifi didn't seem to work at all on the plane."
Pros: "An excellent flight"
Cons: "Delayed 2 hours. Pilot said we were about to take off, sat in plane for another hour before we even moved."
Pros: "Flight/seat, legroom uncomfortable. Idiot sitting next to me also had music loud and didn't turn it down when I asked. This was during taxing to take off. I was going to bring it to the attention of the crew after seatbelt sign was turned off, but once the flight was in the air, the noise of the plane/flight was so deafening that I could hear the music anymore, and neither would the crew if I had bought it to their attention."
Pros: "Getting to destination"
Cons: "Being delayed 3 hrs so not getting my baby to bed until 10pm"
Pros: "Son got to see the cockpit after the flight."
Cons: "Flight did not leave on time. Weather conditions were not a factor."

Pros: "the staff and the drinks options, but that is normal for me, I always like the drinks."
Cons: "The seating, for some reason I kept being placed by the emergency exits, but it's okay, we didn't have to use it."
Pros: "I liked the seating pace most of all for me being 6'7""
Cons: "I didn't like the eight dollars and change for Internet for a two hour flight. Really that rate should be based on the duration of the flight. That's fair."
Pros: "Timing for connecting flights was very good, no missed connections, no long waiting times."
Cons: "On one of my flights I could not pick my seat.. .it was assign to me, at the gate."
Pros: "Because of our delayed flight, which made us miss our flight departure at our layover location, we were upgraded to Comfort+. I'm happy that it was recognized that we were going to be delayed 2 hours to our destination, and were given a more comfortable flight because of it."
Cons: "Delayed flight which caused us to miss layover flight. Delta was quick to fix the issue and upgraded our seating to Comfort+. Time lost for vacation was my only issue."

Cons: "LGA DELAYS AS USUAL."
Pros: "Great staff! Friendly and kind."
Pros: "Arrived within 15 minutes of scheduled time"

Cons: "The passenger in front of me reclined for the entire airborne portion of the flight. I had her seat back in my chest all evening. The darkened cabin was pitch black. Disappearing flight attendant. Broken rear bathroom. Dirty Plane"
Pros: "LaGuardia is terrible. We sat on the ground at the gate for 35 minutes after boarding because (according to captain) the ground control was not allowing plans to move. then there was a 30 minute delay for take off because of the traffic jam. If LaGuardia can't handle the traffic you should direct your clients elsewhere."
Pros: "I was assigned exit row so I had extra leg room. Flight attendants were very nice and helpful."
Pros: "The flight was great and it was 30 minutes early ! What airline actually arrives early anymore ?"

Cons: "We delplaned out on the tarmac and we're bussed to the terminal. Plane boarded very late with no explanation. Plane from n.y. to GSP was delayed multiple times. Again we deplaned on the ground and had to walk up a lot of stairs (difficult for a couple of elderly people). I will never fly delta again."
Pros: "Absolutely nothing."
Cons: "Booked my flight 2 weeks in advance, purchased travel insurance in case of emergency. A family member, the person I shared custody of a child with died of liver cancer, and Delta and the insurance company refused to honor my request for refund or reschedule."
Cons: "Delta used a word "delayed" for canceling a flight. This is deceiving! Not to mention an out an hour delay and the reasons could have been easily prevented; maintenances."
Pros: "Both flights on time!"
Pros: "very poor communication to the passengers the crew left us in the dark"
Cons: "lack of communication to let us know about the delay did not give updates horrible experience missed an important meeting"
Pros: "Everything it was fast clean"
Cons: "No leg room very cramped"
Cons: "Due to the weather it was scary but the pilot was great. He got us there safe"
Cons: "Everything was excellent! I will be flying with them again!"
Pros: "Crew was excellent."
Pros: "United/ LH first called it a mechanical delay....we waited....then the weather caused this mini plane not to take off....long story short...we had to stay in a hotel...nobody gave us a voucher...our helped us with anything....very poor service"
Pros: "Staff was very courteous. Food was pretty ok and drinks were available during whole flight. Lufthansa is a good airline"
Pros: "Could not get skybridge to operate so that we could disembark. United airlines."
Pros: "I Luz Myriam will give to Lufthansa 10 qualification!!! in Overall, Boarding, Crew, Food , Entertainment, but 8 about Confort"
Cons: "Just the air conditions was too cold I asked the attendant if can warm my place a little, but she told me the other passenger are warm, she doesn't take care about me, NOT COOL!!"
Cons: "Crew was not friendly or very helpful, nothing stood out. As this was the first leg of my international flight, it would have been much better I had proper food, rather than a bag of 6 pretzels, especially since I had to be at the airport three hours earlier, and I had a six hour layover in Newark."
Pros: "Economy seats are not comfortable. The seat cushions are worn out and do not provide good support for long flights."
Cons: "The whole trip was a nightmare. I go out of my way to NOT fly United, In this case Lufthansa somehow just sold the ticket and United was flying it and as usual it was horrendous. We had to be re-routed via 3 separate flights jus to make our international connection thanks to our initial flight being moved up 2 hours EARLY. They closed the door in our faces. That added 8 hours of travel time to our trip which I had booked to minimize travel time as I was traveling with pets. United is the WORST."
Pros: "The crew were very friendly. The plane was very clean. The service was excellent, and my husband and I were impressed by the food quality. They even hand out wet wipes for you before serving food, so you can feel clean! I felt like the seats were pretty normal in terms of size and space in economy class, but obviously, it would have been nice to have a tiny bit more space. Good entertainment options."
Cons: "nothing :)"
Pros: "leg room, entertainment, the pilot was informative throughout the flight"
Pros: "Crew was beyond standard. Very nice and friendly and always accommodating."

Pros: "excellent. free drinks, food was delicious. attendants were wonderful."
Pros: "The interior of the plane was nice. The new-design seats, even though they were thin, were fairly comfortable."
Cons: "Way too little legroom. I expected better from Lufthansa. The United flight (767-400) I took back from Germany had at least 1.5 inches more legroom and was far more comfortable as a result. I had a good impression of Lufthansa before, but will avoid the airline now."
Pros: "Entertainment is great, although I did not use it much this flight"
Cons: "Seats were uncomfortable, tighter than I remember last time I flew Luft."
Pros: "All around wonderful trip and experience starting with the flight. The pilots and crews courtesy was fabulous. I arrived ahead of schedule by more than an hour. Thank you Lufthansa! I will be flying with you again soon."
Cons: "I had no dislikes... just a grand time..."
Pros: "Traveled with my dog. They had empty row so United moved us there so dog can be comfortable under the middle seat. Staff was very nice and offered water and ice for the dog."
Cons: "to get with the bus on the airfield and walking up the stairs on the plane. People getting on the plane from the front and the back door and between the small walking ile you need to pass passengers , crazy - sounds like not organized"
Pros: "Staff were all very professional and courteous. Flight on time."
Cons: "Having to sit in last row."
Pros: "Free movie. Good take off and landing by Pilot."
Cons: "Flight attendants were professional, but discourteous. It was not Luftansa as advertised but A UNited airline Plane & crew terrible ! The flight attendants Made you feel like you couldnt ask for anything extra! (Water, juice). The meal wasn't heated all the way, breakfast snack was cold. The seats seemed extra cramped no leg room. You were literally laying on the passenger next to you! They also didnt allow people with children, babies to do advanced boarding it took up so much time! I payed for extra leg room on my return flight which was cancelled by the way due to weather then they gave upgrades to others for free..! While the return flight was delayed I was kept in airport for 8hrs before they cancelled it also unpleasant! That section of the airport had no food, all United Airlines offered us while waiting was sodas! Really? not again will i fly international with UA!"
Pros: "Love the friendly staff, highly interesting entertainment and comfortable seating options."
Pros: "honestly? nothing."
Cons: "3 hours late. it was operated by united airlines, it was the first and last time that I flew them, worst of the worst!"
Pros: "Friendly staff and nice people incl Kay! She was so helpful to me as I'm traveling internationally with 2 kids under 2"
Cons: "Comfort is horrible if your not in comfort rows with extra room. The food is ok but the staff were so consistent and offered food and drinks. The airline should allow pass gets with kid/kids to get on plane earlier not with reg bording passengers. It's horrible how rude people are and impatient!! This would hwlp"
Cons: "Food looked awful. I have decided not to open transparent package with sandwitch."
Cons: "Pilot did not yet to avoid turbulences, which were pretty bad. They also lost my luggage which arrived after three days."
Pros: "Everything was very nice. Flight was on time. The staff was nice. Food was good. Seats could have more space. But overall was great."
Pros: "Comfortable and convenient"
Pros: "Being assigned seat only ten minutes before take off is not ideal"
Pros: "Great service and good very friendly"
Pros: "We came with a baby and were assigned a bassinet seat. The service was great. The food was excellent. The seats were comfortable."
Pros: "The crew were nice. They tried to make everyone happy even though the flight was fully booked."
Cons: "My seat was terrible ( middle all the way in the back and the people next to me occupied both my armrests so i had almost no room to stretch so couldn't relax or sleep at all)) and the food was gross i got food poisoning from the last snack ( turkey sandwich ) and they didn't have any ginger ale."
Pros: "I was not worse than other airlines."
Cons: "It was not better than other airlines."
Pros: "Flight took off a couple of hours late due to problems in Frankfurt airport but everyone worked to help us with connecting flights."
Pros: "Got us there"
Pros: "Significantly more room, width and leg room, with footrests, business class wide arm rests, courtesy kit (socks, mask, toothbrush)... Great entertainment system and large screen. Beats the heck out of united and american!"
Pros: "Everyone was very helpful"
Cons: "First flight was canceled. We were rerouted through to Philadelphia to London to Frankfurt and on to Salzburg. Luggage lost in London still waiting on that."
Cons: "The seats werent very comfortable and there was a BIG language barrier with the crew."
Cons: "I booked the flight through Kayak - that in turn went through Airfare,com. I thought the flight was with Lufthansa - but it turned out to be with United for the return trip...trouble was no one told United until I checked in at the desk. I could not even check in on line. I spent a lot of time before hand - trying to get it sorted, In the end they said just show up and it will all be ok! Not a good experience."
Pros: "That we had a selection of movies to watch."
Cons: "Got stuck in the last row in the middle of the plane. They ran out of turkey for dinner and got stuck with awful pasta. They should leave that to Italian chefs to make. I am glad I packed some snacks so that I could have something to eat besides the roll, dessert and small salad. The seats didn't recline fully like the seats in front of us so we were really cramped. They also skipped my husband when they came around with the drinks... we had to hit the call button. I will book my next trip with another airline."
Cons: "Lufthansa canceled without warning and offered zero options. They even turned off their phones to the entire public. Will never fly Lufthansa again. Ever."
Pros: "THE WOMAN AT THE BAGGAGE TRANSFER DESK WHO FOUND MY PHONE AND WAITED FOR ME AT MY GATE FOR 30 MINUTES TO RETURN MY PHONE. SHE WAS THE BEST!! The inflight entertainment. The pilot making up time for the one hour delay in takeoff for fog."
Cons: "The plane is old and in need of replacement or total interior redo. The walk to the gate from the terminal is forever and once you are arrive there isn't anything to do but wait. The crew was OK but nothing more than doing the basics. While steerage is not expected to be comfortable a redo or new plane would make it better."
Pros: "Variety of Movies"
Cons: "parallel boarding of business and economy class, poor entertainment system quality. Functionality limited and even after 2 times rebooting no big improvement."
Pros: "They actually feed you good food and the crew's service is very fast. In-flight entertainment was wonderful."
Pros: "The goose dinner was good. Tthe attendants brought plenty of water throughout the flight"
Cons: "The announcements were hard to understand."
Cons: "The check in staff at the gate could have been more friendly and paid better attention to customer care. I was standing in front of the counter with a simple Question but had to wait 5 minutes before the two agents got done with their own personal chat and thought about attending to me."
Cons: "From Helsinki to Stockholm I missed my flight because we boarded late. Once in Stockholm I had to take two different planes for my destination and in result loosing time"
Pros: "Love the service on Alaska. Crew were incredibly nice!"
Pros: "Guess what, we took off and arrived on time!"
Cons: "Attitude of staff, cleanliness of cabin, actual cod fish (not tilapia/suay) etc. For dinner. Good Swedish scotch too"
Cons: "the staff constantly refused to help when they could and provided wrong information that caused me to miss my flight. i will never book through kayak because of this experience."
Pros: "The food was great and the staff were excellent."
Cons: "The entertainment selection was limited and there were no live channels - just prerecorded content"
Pros: "Everything about the flight was fine. Boarding, flying and retrieving luggage were all standard and went smoothly."
Cons: "I was upset that neither Kayak nor SAS provided any information about our ticket being a basic, basic ticket, by which I mean, did not include any checked luggage allowance in the price of the flight. I ended up paying 140 additional Euros for two bags. It appears that SAS's pricing is gaming the system when searching for flights or that Kayak is not being up-front about the type of fare they are advertising."
Cons: "Didn't make connectingflight due to a bomb alert at airport. sAS didntgive any support with either food or hotel. Stuck in Copenhagen for a day and night."
Pros: "The flight was good : excellent pilot and crew. Good takeoff and landing. Short but sweet flight."
Cons: "Leg room is a nit short for tall people. Everything else was great."
Pros: "SAS is the best airlines !!"
Pros: "Quit a lot space for domestic flight"
Cons: "No drinks no food. We pay a lot of money for seat"
Pros: "Crew was efficient; cabin was clean."
Cons: "Seating was tight and uncomfortable. Seat cushions felt thin, we could feel the seat frames, and there was too little space between the rows. Food was lame and over cooked."
Pros: "Even though this was an older model plane, the cabin at least did not feel like an oven, which was the case when we flew SAS to Copenhagen."
Cons: "This was a 9 hour flight where if the lights were off, a baby would sleep. Instead, the lights were left on to encourage the purchase of food/drink and airmail knick knacks."
Pros: "Temperatures was good not very hot. Has a handicapped bathroom."
Cons: "Cabin light was only slightly dimmed during the 8 hrs flight. Then instead of gradually brighten the light. They just flip the switch to full blast. I think they are trying to sell you more duty free than letting their customers rest. Not ok!"
Pros: "Short flight, friendly crew."
Pros: "personnel is very courteous."
Cons: "cofee is terrible."
Pros: "The crew was friendly."
Cons: "The crew forgot to start serving the final meal until 40 minutes before we landed which resulted in them nearly throwing food at people so that they could quickly get through the plane and sit again before descent. I was not able to choose my seat and was seated in the back of the plane. Consequently this meant that every parent on the plane with two-year-olds decided that the best place to let them stretch their little legs was back by me. I work with small children so I understand that when they reach that age all they want to do is kick and punch, but I didn't want to end my vacation by having half a dozen two-year-olds punch my leg or try to crawl under my chair as they wandered nearby. I still have bruises."
Pros: "On time and smooth travel."
Cons: "No choice in dinner items."
Cons: "Crew was rude. Had to ask 3 times for a drink before I actually got it and they snarled at me about having to pay. I didn't care about paying, at that pout I would have paid $100 for some water. Seats are RIDICULOUSLY small and when the person in front of you puts their seat back it's impossible to do anything. Forgot having your tray table down."
Pros: "Staff seemed nice. Boarding didn't take too long even when I was selected for a random check."
Cons: "The air conditioning didn't go on until take off. There were no options for food. All alcoholic beverages were not complementary and priced too high. I got sick after eating the meal that was provided. i reserved a seat but at check in the computer assigned me a different seat number. I was flying with a family member and instead of sitting next to them I had to sit next to a stranger."
Pros: "A bottle of water along with the standard pillow and blanket at each seat. Never had a long line for the bathroom (dumb luck?)"
Pros: "Food and movies were great!"
Cons: "Couldn't afford a seat with leg space."
Cons: "I didn't.t like your movies selection? Not very current. the food was awful. Not being able to book a seat until I arrived from Amsterdam."
Pros: "as advertised - premium economy"
Cons: "no complaint or concern"
Pros: "The entertainment system is top notch. And the food was actually good. The crew was very friendly and helpful."
Cons: "Couldn't use the WiFi without paying extra, even on an international flight. The seats are among the most uncomfortable I have ever flown in. There is so little room that it is virtually impossible to sleep, even on an 8-hour flight. The purser's English was atrocious, nearly incomprehensible, and he didn't seem to care whether anyone understood him or not."
Cons: "I lost my luggage!!!"
Pros: "Food good; nice drinks selection; no food available on demand"
Cons: "Inattentive service; few entertainment options"
Cons: "Wasn't assigned a seat and had to stand in a long line to wait to confirm that I had a seat for a flight I booked over 3 months earlier."
Pros: "The SAS experience was great overall. Nice flight attendants, quick boarding, very well organized. Food was one of the best airline foods Ive ever eaten, especially the BBQ chicken and wild rice entree."
Cons: "Something about the seats made it impossible to sleep without being woken up frequently by a painful position (economy class). Obviously no economy class seat will be comfortable to sleep in, but SAS seats seem to be a lot worse than other airlines."
Cons: "I was traveling with two small children (my grandchildren ). The crew was unhelpful and unfriendly . I don't think I will fly SAS again"
Pros: "Crew was super sweet!"
Pros: "Connecting flight from Hamburg was late so gate personnel graciously gave me an upgrade."
Pros: "Very professional and accommodating staff. Acceptable food. Efficient and on time boarding."
Cons: "The seats were comfortable but legroom was too little to get comfortable on such a long flight."
Cons: "no vegetarian food I am always told should have ordered at booking but this option is always made obscure, difficult or impossible too cramped and plain full to capacity"
Cons: "I had the same seat as I originally chose, but my husband's seat was changed without any consent and he had to change from the isle seat to the middle seat. Due to this, he could not sleep at all in 8-hour flight. I bought the ticket well in advance and chose the seats, and that was all in vain. I have no idea why it happened, and we are very disappointed."
Cons: "I missed my flight due to car troubles and has been very difficult in trying to get a refund for my flight. SAS was very unhelpful at the airport I had to go to Delta and purchase and entirely new flight!"
Pros: "Food good, comfortable plane, smooth flight, on time, baggage handled properly"
Pros: "Crew was excellent"
Cons: "Was put on standby because all passengers could not wait in gate area after checkin. Stood in public hallway for nearly an hour - no seating in area where told to stand."
Pros: "Nothing , it was terrible flight ."
Cons: "I bought full price ticket, not STAND BY SAS DIDN'T LET CHECK IN MY FLIGHT FROM RIGA to SAN DIEGO. So I have problem everywhere . In Oslo I was waiting for my seat more than one hours. I very often was SAS, it was good, but never ever I will use this company again."
Cons: "I was sitting next to a girl who was not part of my family who got airsick 3 times on the flight. The first time I told the airline attendant and she brought a large plastic bag and some paper towels. The girl but her used airsick bag inside the large plastic bag. I tied the top and put in next to me near the aisle because I expected the attendant to come pick it up. The attendant told me I had to take it to the lavatory and dispose of it in there. It was very hard to get the large plastic bag into the small trash receptacle because it had fill with air. I asked the attendant for another airsick bag but she never brought it. The girl got sick again and she used my airsick bag. While walking the bag up to the lavatory, I asked a different attendant for another airsick bag. They just told me I had to dispose of it in the lavatory and never brought another airsick bag. I had to ask someone for their airsick bag because the girl got sick a third time. I can not believe the horrible service on this flight! The poor girl was crying because she felt so sick and there wasn't anyone to help her. I did what I could but I felt something could have been done by the crew. I will think twice before I reserve another flight on SAS."
Pros: "Efficiency, confidence, promptness"
Cons: "The meals were mediocre and should be up to the standard of the rest of SAS service. The selection of movies could have been wider. They do help pass the time."
Cons: "I was sitting next to a special needs man and the crew was extremely unhelpful towards him. He should not have been flying alone and they did not help him at all. When you handed out the customs form he told the stewardess he needed help and she ignored him. When I pressed the call button for him it took someone 35minutes to come back and then she told him she would help him after dinner. I pressed a call button the second time to help him find something and again it took over 30 minutes for someone to come back to us. If there was a real emergency this delay would have been a huge problem. The stewardess was extremely rude in general."
Pros: "From finding affordable tickets to the moment we left the flight we had a wonderful experience again on SAS. Boarding was simple, we left on time, the flight was smooth and enjoyable, crew and food wonderful. It was a super experience so thank you SAS!"
Cons: "Nothing negative at all."
Pros: "Entertainment system."
Cons: "Food. In flight announcements were barely audible at times."
Pros: "Overall the flight was ok."
Cons: "Each time I fly SAS, it seems that a service that was free must now be paid for."
Pros: "Overhead storage adequate."
Cons: "Cramped (standard coach)as rhe person in front of me reclined his seat. Unhappy that I was required to pay extra to select a seat in standard coach when I made my reservation weeks ago. An airline's price should include selection of an available seat. Requirement to pay for even one drink on a transatlantic flight seemed cheesy."
Pros: "food and movies were great. appreciated the coffee and tea"
Pros: "I thought the food was very good and the staff very efficient and helpful"
Pros: "Great choice of movies."
Cons: "Having to pay for soft drinks (except water) on a transatlantic flight. Food was just correct."
Pros: "Arlanda airport is quiet and fast. Security line took less than 5 minutes. The terminal was quiet and had a good place to lie down and take a nap. I did not feel anxious or tense like I always do in US airports. SAS is a great airline with pleasant crew and decent food. (Great food by airline standards.) Entertainment is great too -- lots of free movies on the built-in screen. My only complaint is that the airplane wifi wasn't free."
