One of my bags didnt arrived. It was a priority bag. And the flight was a really bad experience. There were two kids (2-3 years old) from two families in business class that cried during literally 10 hours! Was a really long flight
Pros: "10/10 would recommend.."
Pros: "The crew service was very good, as was the food. The only complain is about the entertainment, hope to update the touch screen."
Pros: "Crew were great"
Cons: "Cabin kept very hot, very difficult to sleep. Seats were so-so comfortable"
Pros: "comfortable seating, friendly helpful crew, good food"
Cons: "sometimes too cold sometimes too warm"
Pros: "Flight was on time, service onboard inspite of short flight, and the scenery of the Alps was breathtaking"
Pros: "Crew was great, seat comfortable, food was fine."
Cons: "Check-in personnel didn't quite know how to deal with a Green Card holder. Passport check before boarding creates a mess."
Cons: "Not having to go to a different, further away airport because I missed my connection. Not having my luggage go missing and not get delivered within 24 hours."
Pros: "Nice smooth flight. Also lovely to be offered a drink and food. Although the quiche is not great. Wasn’t nicer last year"
Cons: "Maybe just change the quiche. Very dry"
Pros: "Water provided."
Cons: "My fly connection did not appear in screens, confusing, stressing. Fly left more than one hour after schedule, no explanation, still arrived on time"
Pros: "Crew was excellent. Seats were uncomfortable"
Cons: "The seats in coach are incredible small and the seats reclines way to far."
Cons: "Everything was great"
Pros: "Service god"
Cons: "Seat was broken. Would not recline. Challenging when already very tight Entertainment did not respond to use English as language choice"
Pros: "Great cabin crew!"
Cons: "While waiting to board SFO-ZRH flight Swissair personnel walked around and randomly pulled out passengers from line to check luggage dimensions. Since manufacturers adhere to airline baggage standards, no violations were found during checks. This misguided effort only resulted in publicly humiliating Swissair customers. Boarding process was pure pandemonium...this was the first time in recent memory, where all coach passengers were invited to board at the same time! Very inefficient! Crowded seating in coach,with ten passengers sandwiched in across Boeing 767 aircraft. Competing airlines flying identical aircraft have nine across seatings Thin seat cushions cause leg cramps after a few hours."
Pros: "Very little."
Cons: "Boarding was difficult with poor communication, before impolite request for spot check of carry-on bag and person. Ended up being one of the last to board. Entertainment system did not work, and after 4 requests for assistance to different crew members finally gave up asking and so had no entertainment for whole of flight. The last of the crew members suggested that an alternative seat or a future flight voucher could be given, but neither of these materialized. Food mediocre, and crew polite, but some not particularly friendly."
Cons: "No leg room very uncomfortable"
Pros: "Swiss is the best"
Pros: "The length of the flight"
Cons: "3 of our 5 suitcases were out of luck to make it.. they damaged our 2 new luggages and the third one.. we only realized at home... now I have to deal with that too so I will be with Swiss on my mind for a while.. never again!!!"
Pros: "The seats in exit row were large enough for me to straighten my legs"
Cons: "Very rude attendants. Also if you sit in the exit row they don’t let you put ANYTHING on your lap or by your feet, even a sweatshirt that you remove for a moment. I have never had this problem on any other airline."
Pros: "Excellent Service. Excellent food."
Pros: "Swiss Air the best!!!!"
Pros: "I’ve flown SWISS Air twice in the past 6 years and I’ve never had an issue, always a great experience!"
Pros: "Nothing!! And by the way this is the last time I travel with you guys. I couldn’t travel because of my itinerary doula -Bruxelle - Zurich- Washington Dulles . I was not told when I bought the ticket that I will need a visa to transit between Bruxel to Zurich. Now they told me that my only option is to buy another ticket . Thank God éthiopien Airline was more affordable."
Cons: "Nothing!! And by the way this is the last time I travel with you guys. I couldn’t travel because of my itinerary doula -Bruxelle - Zurich- Washington Dulles . I was not told when I bought the ticket that I will need a visa to transit between Bruxel to Zurich. Now they told me that my only option is to buy another ticket . Thank God éthiopien Airline was more affordable."
Pros: "Pleasant staff"
Cons: "Large person next to me spilled over into my seat. Large people should sit with folks like themselves"
Pros: "Delay at airport was awful. Gate was not announced ahead of time. By the time it was everything ok the terminal was closed. Some people appeared to have couches while I did not. Gate was at the end of the empty terminal. Wifi pass expired and no artery was offered even though the flight was delayed. Passengers were made to leave the gate to recheck passports. My bags were searched twice and while I fully support security this was excessive"
Cons: "Provide vouchers in consistent manner. Provide wifi alternatives. Don't use an empty terminal. Offer more toilets and water fountains."
Cons: "Delay in BCN for an hour"
Pros: "Or print out a boarding pass. Much unlike our experience with Lufthansa flying from Boston through Frankfurt to Geneva."
Cons: "See sbove"
Cons: "The flight was cancelled in the middle of the night the night before, forced me to find another flight and re-book my morning 6:45am flight tickets at midnight for next morning. Not fun."
Pros: "It's such a short flight that to me the experience is pretty insignificant. I liked that it was on time and the rest was very average for what I expected in a 45 minutes flight"
Cons: "I would have loved a video"
Cons: "Too narrow seats."
Pros: "Liked the crew, seats, snack. Definitely a pleasant experience."
Pros: "Food & beverage, onboard entertainment and beauty product in the bathroom was good."
Cons: "Service was okay and the seats were horribly uncomfortable. Not what I remember from Swiss when I use to fly constantly with them 2 years ago. Also, I was singled out by the crew at the gate and pulled aside. Racially profiling at its finest."
Pros: "Aircraft clean, staff friendly and efficient"
Cons: "Lighting in aircraft is too bright Food offers by swiss in economy is terrible. My company di a not support business class travel"
Pros: "I never used Swiss Airline before but my friends told me crews are very professional and clean... She is right!!!Their crews, Foods, and very clean environments.... had a wonderful experiences"
Pros: "Good service... good food....on time. I will fly Swiss again."
Pros: "I liked everything.....the food, boarding, comfortable, the crew. It was excellent! Will fly them again."
Cons: "The movies were the same so coming back there was nothing to watch."
Cons: "People who handle Swiss"
Cons: "THERE'S SOO LITTLE LEG SPACE BETWEEN SEATS ON THE ECONOMY SECTION IT IS VERY UNCONFORTABLE!!!"
Cons: "Should be clear whether meals contain nuts."
Pros: "Best entertainment package of Movies/TV/Food available on commercial airlines."
Pros: "Only the crew was good"
Cons: "Ridiculous entertainment system - was impossible to watch a movie."
Cons: "seats were small and uncomfortable"
Cons: "I had a tight connection in Zurich and a very lengthy trek to get to connecting flight. I wish Swiss Air had told me ahead of time that the flight would hold until I (and at least two other people) got there, instead of of having us run like crazy in an effort to make the flight. Connection time was way too tight."
Cons: "Old plane, hard uncomfortable seats, no wifi, rigid flight attendants, awful food, middle seat (after paying for premium seating) with two enormous guys on either side, fixed armrest, AC dripped on me most of the flight and was told nothing could be done, interminable."
Pros: "Extra Legroom"
Cons: "It should have been a good flight BUT: the older gentleman next to me had a pot belly and he was not able to use his seat foldup tray. I had to share my small meal tray with him. That very uncomfortable! Seats were tight. Not a pleasant experience with Swiss."
Pros: "Great crew, and on time, of course: there Swiss!"
Cons: "Tech old and seats uncomfortable and plane loud."
Pros: "Thank you. Keep the good work."
Pros: "Price was good, as they had a special offer"
Cons: "Everything. Next time I rather pay a bit more and fly easyJet."
Pros: "Nice crew great sitting"
Cons: "Boarding has always been slow with this trip.... disorganized"
Cons: "Excellent! Got us home on time and with great service! Thank you"
Pros: "Business class upgrade"
Cons: "Sitting in window next time"
Cons: "Excellent assisted transfer between Austrian Airlines flight and Lufthansa flight to Seattle in Frankfurt. Boarding in Frankfurt could have been handled easier in groups by seating. Friendly stewards, good entertainement and food options. Quiet B 747 plane, spacious overhead stowage."
Pros: "The seats were very spacious and we were fed on the flight!"
Cons: "In flight entertainment."
Pros: "Flight left on time. Comfortable 747-400 plane with huge overhead bins and plenty of leg room even in economy, Great cabin crew. Food was, well, airplane food. But at least there was a vegetarian choice, which I looked way better than the meat dish,"
Cons: "Service was a bit rushed at the end. In the last hour of a 10-hour flight they served another meal, which was similar to the first meal (even though it could have served as breakfast or lunch). Also had to fill out the customs declaration and prepare for landing,"
Cons: "I still think it makes more sense to board the seats in the back of the plane before those further forward. It is difficult to get past the people who stand in the aisle or take forever to try to put their bag in the overhead bin."
Pros: "The Lufthansa service in rebooking."
Cons: "Lost bag- this was after my luggage tag was scanned and I was assured the bag was on the plane. Getting information from Lufthansa about bag status was impossible. Help phones were either busy or never answered. A black hole of no information until the bag arrived 30 hours later. Then a 45 min. At airport to get it back."
Pros: "Great food, great service. Crew was very nice."
Cons: "The video screen at my seat was malfunctioning."
Pros: "I'll probably never fly Basic Economy again....it's worth the extra money."
Cons: "See first comment."
Pros: "The gluten free special meal was more imaginative than others I’ve had. No rice crackers wrapped in saran. Flight attendants very professional."
Cons: "Flight seemed to drag on forever, but there’s not much the airline can do about that. Seats in economy were cramped."
Pros: "The flight was one hour late to leave Seattle and we had to run in Frankfurt airport for 20 minuts to catch the next flight and one luggage did not make it . No more"
Pros: "Lots of food with free wine"
Pros: "Flight out was delayed by four and a half hours, missed connection was a pain. Was not aware that Lufthansa changed their policy. To reserve seats you have to pay hundreds of dollars, which was not made clear while booking. Further the quality of their food was significantly degraded."
Pros: "I am in love with these guys! They made me feel very welcomed and proved that German quality is the highest one. The crew was just brilliant! Incredible comfort. Thank you!"
Pros: "So much more comfortable to sit and sleep on such a long flight. Worth every penny!"
Cons: "They left my suitcase in Frankfurt with our car keys."
Pros: "The crew, again, was fabulous. Boarding, once the stuffy wait was over, went quickly. They attended to every request with smiles, gentle humor, and without delay. Nonstop movies were a great help on this second of two long legs, and it was really nice to have control over pausing, replaying portions, and jumping ahead past sex scenes. A 10-sec forward button like the back button would be very useful to skip nudity scenes, there were families around us! The trip was as comfortable as it could be, given close proximity of seats. Appreciated the pillows and blankets, and frequent water and drinks."
Cons: "Boarding was pretty terrible - no instructions, go left, give up the water bottle we JUST BOUGHT even though it was still unopened (it had to be "sealed", still no idea what that means because the seal wasn't broken), and the waiting room was very stuffy! Seemed we should have been able to get air...? Boarding went quickly, though, thankfully. Breakfast was pretty bad, one of us just skipped it once opened because it was so unappetizing. Would have liked movie ratings to appear in the descriptions to save the risk of getting started on lame shows."
Pros: "The crew - seemed very amenable and pleasant on this flight. One helped me move to effectively solve the acute posture problem."
Cons: "The seat - window by request, but it was in front of an emergency exit The seat - is jammed in - very tight - could not put it back to relax, and could not relax my left side by the window. My left shoulder and arm and left hip started hurting - couldn't sleep - took 2 days to get rid of the numbness in my arm. I asked to move, and it became obvious that there were many empty seats in the next section behind. I moved, and my comfort improved. Why was I given such a posture killer - especially on such a very long flight with seats to spare?"
Pros: "The food and service is always good. In flight entertainment and nice planes!"
Cons: "To board- it's just a long queue - any way to shorten line so we don't have to stand for so long?"
Cons: "Needed more visible organized pickets showing the seat ranges avoiding mixed lined passengers and delay."
Pros: "Friendly crew, multiple drink services"
Cons: "Waited 40 mins after boarding with no explanation as to why we hadn't moved"
Cons: "My video player had substantially less options than the rest of my aisle. The food was below average."
Cons: "Plane was very late; boarding late; short flight so no food or entertainment, but not really a problem. Overall condition of plane was mediocre at best -- old plane, not particularly clean. It was actually Air Canada. If that is a partner of Lufthansa, very disappointed. Would not fly Air Canada again, but LOVE Lufthansa."
Cons: "Food was pretty bad"
Pros: "1. The crew was very pleasant and responsive. 2. The entertainment selections were plenty, recent and without extra cost. 3. The food was nice (if you weren't having meat options). My travel companion was a bit disgusted by the meat. I enjoyed the pasta!"
Cons: "1. The seats were extremely uncomfortable without sufficient cushioning. It felt like sitting on a plank. My back still hurts. We also had to straighten up the seats during meals because it was so bad for the person behind. 2. Boarding is a bit disorganized. Perhaps try splitting the boarding process into zones so it isn't a mad house free for all after the initial boarders. 3. On my flight to Frankfurt, the plane was half empty, yet my seat was changed from row 8 where I would have had almost no one near me back to row 23 where they had cramped all the passesngers into one area of the plane. This was done without request or explanation."
Pros: "Entertainment, flight crew was courteous and helpful, lots of snacks, water, and free wine!"
Cons: "One of our pieces of luggage did not make it back with us. The good thing is that the Lufthansa staff was helpful, the automated emails kept me informed, and the bag was delivered to me as soon as possible. Seems to me it was as good as it gets when a piece of luggage gets lost."
Cons: "No food service for a evening flight. Delayed because of a toilet problem."
Pros: "free music, video. Plenty to eat and drink. Crew was friendly, accommodating and kept the plane clean on a long fully booked flight."
Cons: "Boarding was a bit chaotic but there wasn't much room to line up a full load of 747 passengers. They didn't have my vegetarian meals as requested. In one case they rounded me up a business class substitute but in the other case all I had to eat was bread and the dessert."
Cons: "I had to scramble on the last day to ensure I have an alternate flight via British Airways"
Pros: "flight attendants were polite and there were two meal services."
Cons: "The flight was full and the seats were extremely close together with little room. When the person in front of me leaned back I had no room and it was hard to see the movie screen."
Pros: "I felt like I was traveling in first class! The crew treated me VERY well it was like night and day from the trip I made TO Italy on Air Canada who I will never travel with again. I will look for future travels with this airline for certain thank you so much!"
Cons: "I can't think of a thing! You really were that good and my flight was a long one from Frankfurt to Seattle!"
Pros: "Food/drink choices and portions were very generous on our long haul flight . Efficient boarding. Lots of entertainment options as well."
Cons: "They ran out of one of the meal options and then one of the meals later had sauerkraut which the smell of in the plane was overwhelming and made me feel unwell."
Pros: "Crew was helpful, slightly relaxed reclining. Baggage delivered on time & without damage."
Cons: "Flight took after 1.5 hours delay , with 30 min incremental delay notifications. After take-off, food service started 2 or 2.5 hours later , they could have expdited it considering that the flight was delayed. Seats ,as I have come to expect from Lufthansa , were cramped laterally ,although i was pleasantly surprised with how much they reclined, given my low expectations. Main dish in the Food service was served hot but were quite minimal in taste/quantity & variety comapred to other inter-continental providers. I was feeling hungry most of the flight and couldnt sleep as well."
Pros: "I witnessed the flight crew defuse a conflict between two male passengers (that had escalated to shouting and throwing each others belongings out of overhead storage) before we left Frankfurt. A male steward showed he could be professionally stern when backing up a female coworker handling the situation and compassionate when he comforted an elderly woman in distress halfway through the intercontinental flight. The entire crew I interacted with in economy class were professional, friendly, welcoming, and helpful."
Cons: "Boarding the entire plane at once was inefficient and caused conflicts over the availability of overhead storage. Obviously this is an airline decision and not a flight specific problem."
Pros: "Crew was very nice - liked flight tracker - personal tv's - food was good. Boarding was good -"
Cons: "Seat in economy are just to small - need to be able to recline a bit more for a 9 to 10+ hour flight. So close together it was hard to eat being in the middle seat. Movies and music need to be updated -"
Pros: "The price, the service, the food."
Cons: "The sardine can."
Cons: "I was very uncomfortable in my seat between two fellow passengers who were large individuals. For a flight duration of over ten hours, it was terrible to repeatedly have to negotiate space with them as they were spilling into my chair space. I also had to insist they not extend their legs into my foot well."
Cons: "Seats were very cramped in economy. A big factor on a 10 hour flight."
Pros: "They have some films with subtitles- perfect for Deaf people."
Cons: "Wish all films have subtitles- there are millions of deaf people in the world, you know?"
Pros: "Very friendly and accommodating crew, efficient service, okay food options and good quantity for a lengthy flight. Very happy that a vegetarian option isn't a battle anymore! The entertainment options were very nice, the time passed quickly with the many movie options."
Cons: "No real complaints, maybe the cabin air was a little stuffy, but it's too be expected on a flight of 11.5 hrs. Crew offered water and juice throughout the flight which helped."
Pros: "Vissited my brother in law in Karlsruhe Germany wonderful trip to and from Frankfurt"
Pros: "Crew was great... food was wonderful. The lie-flat seat made my day."
Pros: "Lit hands crew more caring and professional. All good."
Pros: "Loved the business class upgrade"
Cons: "Lack of food choices even in business class"
Pros: "You fed us a lot, which was appreciated. The food was pretty good, especially for airline food. And you were generous with the alcohol:-)"
Cons: "My seat mate was very difficult. I'd appreciate more movie selection, like newer US films."
Great flight Will go again!
Pros: "The seats were so comfortable"
Pros: "Crew is excellent, polite and personal!"
Cons: "Plane is super old and outdated. Comfort seat is not, comfortable, very tight. TV screen is not good quality, with the old controls on a handset. No touch, no 1/8 inch audio jack (it has the old 3 holes one). Wifi for streaming freezes every other second. Just make a face lift to the plane, everything else is good."
Cons: "Boarding was crazy. Could not everyone in the gate area."
Pros: "Boarding was quick and flight was calm"
Cons: "The coffe and breakfast."
Pros: "The crew was pleasant"
Cons: "Baggage checkin & flight boarding was slow & disorganized."
Pros: "The aircraft"
Cons: "No overbooking next time!"
Pros: "Seat was comfy and spacious for economy class"
Cons: "Vegetarian meal was okay but could be more enjoyable if served with bread at start of meal."
Pros: "Very professional"
Cons: "Lost luggage"
Pros: "Friendly crew, upgraded seat was worthwhile"
Cons: "More snacks in between meals,"
Pros: "The seat was a little uncomfortable but the crew were amazing."
Cons: "We were allowed to choose our seats from SFO to Amsterdam but not for the return flight. I like to be able to choise my seats when I book the flight. Choosing seats 24 hours before is not convenient when traveling for the return trip."
Pros: "The flight crew was so friendly and the food was really good."
Pros: "The space at my feet with the chair in front was a bit akward."
Cons: "Not being seated next to small kids. Perhaps they should have a separate section? ;-)"
Pros: "Crew was nice and friendly"
Cons: "Airplane so uncomfortable. Food horrible. Not even available for one of us what we ask for on what was offered. Bad taste and not what can be on a that length of time flight."
Pros: "The crew was nice and helpful (our flight was 2h late so they put us on the one before in business class for us not to miss our connection)"
Cons: "A lot of delays, on both flights. We spent twice as much time waiting than flying."
Pros: "The crew were very nice, food was tasty, seat comfortable and the entertainment great as well. Will be flying KLM again soon :)"
Cons: "The check in desk was late opening & the carry on luggage size was smaller than advertised on their website, so it had to be put in the hold. Open on time to prevent less stress to travelers & give more accurate information about cabin luggage."
Pros: "Lovely crew, very helpful"
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: "Need more leg room!!! Larger meals needed."
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: "Crew was good"
Cons: "My suitcase didn't come with the airline."
Cons: "Having to change my seat to accommodate a rude belligerent passenger, who had taken my seat, refused to move until spoken to by steward. She then made my flight a nightmare, until I let her sit in my aisle seat. Even then she was not satisfied, she abused me the whole flight damaged the screen so I could not use it until the steward fixed it. Demanded that I except any and all alcohol to give to her to drink. When I am tea total she then continued to abuse me. I asked the steward to move me he just shrugged his shoulders and said there was nowhere else. This is definitely my the worst flight I have experienced."
Cons: "Food had only vegetarian choices. No charging place and ambiance was noisy"
Pros: "kLM staff was great."
Pros: "Everything excellent. Comfortable seats in business."
Pros: "The crew were hardworking, responsive, conscientious and friendly"
Cons: "Really poor entertainment choices esp compared to my inbound AirFrance flight. Boarding was pretty disorganized and late."
Pros: "Nice flight, nice crew, and a nice experience."
Pros: "I got some rest"
Cons: "unable to charge my phone or watch movies"
Cons: "Crowded seating, wake-up for breakfast service two hours before arrival"
Pros: "The cabin crew were pretty good. That's about all that was good."
Cons: "I paid almost $400 for upgraded seats. When I got to the airport-- no seats-- both ways!! i didn't even have regular seat assignments. I had to choose from the last few seats available. The ticket agent, the gate agent and the cabin crew all did nothing to make up for the fact that their system screwed up and stuck me in a cramped coach seat in the back of the plane for 11 hours-- TWICE! Beyond that, KLM must have one of the oldest fleets in the sky. Both ways LAX->AMS->LAX, I was on a 30-35 year old 747 with no wifi, no power and a ten-year-old entertainment system. Never again."
Cons: "Old airplane with not really comfy seats. No outlets for charging devices. Very old entertainment screen."
Pros: "I really like the spaciousness, the plug ins and general service"
Cons: "I have a dairy allergy but had no option to prepurchase a dairy free meal. It made for a very unenjoyable flight as I couldn't eat anything they had. What was worse was after I told them of my situation they said they understood and had a meal that would do but there was cheese, yogurt, milk chocolate, etc."
Cons: "Why do the crew have to slam the overhead and catering compartments to get them to shut?"
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 cabin crew, the flight and communication and the cleanliness of the plane."
Cons: "It was really unclear which desk to use at Birmingham airport to check in. It was extremely stressful for a first time flier as I had no idea what to do - the desk location wasn't marked clearly and when no staff were there it wasn't clear that the desk was open."
Cons: "Only one queue for boarding. Flight late on arrival."
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: "Speed, crew, and reliability."
Cons: "Food wasn't good, no entertainment or accessory plug ins, and seats were worn out! Not comfortable at all. Great leg room though."
Pros: "Loads of leg room"
Cons: "Loved everything"
Pros: "The service, entertainment, food, the crew, the aircraft were excellent."
Cons: "They put us in a Transavia plane."
Cons: "Did not get the luggage from connecting flight from Amsterdan to Basel"
Pros: "For an 8 hr flight...multiple snacks, 2 meals and continuous beverage service. Blanket, pillow amd movies."
Cons: "Watched flight attendant drop tongs on floor, pick them up and put them back in the bowl of buns and continue to use them to serve bums"
Cons: "The crew on the Lagos Amsterdam route (in economy) are particularly unfriendly and brusque. This is my experience each time i fly this route in economy"
Pros: "Unexpected surprise--even on a 1 hour flight at noon, they gave us a sandwich!"
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"
Pros: "My seat cushion was out of alignment so not great. But I like the two side seat configuration."
Cons: "Boarding is a zoo. Board by row. It’s faster."
Pros: "Great aisle seat on a modern plane.I was in the middle seat on an older plane for the trip there (close to 8 hours), and it wasn’t as comfortable. The trip from Reykjavík to Seattle was great: comfortable seat and more room, though they were both in the same fare class."
Cons: "7.5 hours flight..not even a complimentary snack is offered!!"
Pros: "THIS AIRLINE IS RIDICULOUS. CANCELLED ON US AS SOON AS WE LANDED IN FRAMCE. DIDNT ENJOY IUR VACAY BECAUSE OF IT."
Pros: "Low fare."
Cons: "They out us on different seats w no option to change our seats. Also changed one of our EU local flights extending our travel time w multiple stops. No option online to pay for luggage which would have been a better rate. Overall if you buy Iceland air through agency you receive inferior service."
Pros: "The in-flight entertainment system is very good (once you get past the spam video ads for Icelandic attractions). The flight crew on both flights was very attentive and friendly. I really appreciate that IcelandAir gives out toy boxes to the children on the plane; that's very nice."
Cons: "They give you no food whatsoever, even for transatlantic flights (not even snacks), and they do not make you aware of this prior to being on the airplane. If you want to eat, you have to purchase their overpriced airplane food from the menu."
Pros: "Short duration and cheap price."
Cons: "I wish there was a larger selection of food to order and that the portions were larger. The beverage cart only came by once during the trip, though water was offered twice. The entertainment selection was mediocre with mostly old movies and many movies offered only in Icelandic."
Cons: "Icelandair attitude suck and is the reason I will not even visit Iceland now."
Pros: "A bit more leg room for a budget airline. Water and toilet were free."
Cons: "Very expensive and limited food options for such a long flight. Impossible to avoid the very third-world Reykjavik airport. The facilities and services were not adequate to serve the volume of passengers passing through on the weekdays we were there. The over- crowded spaces presented both safety and security concerns in my opinion."
Cons: "Icelandair does not serve food, flights are very hot, get very little to drink"
Pros: "flight, crew and over all service provided by Iceland air was outstanding nothing to complain about at all"
Cons: "this is something Iceland air has no control over this is an airport problem and Isavia is to blame. The company controlling boarding lines in KEF should have their head checked. There is nothing to help people get in correct boarding line"
Pros: "Inexpensive ticket. Boarded and left right on time. Small, crappy plane (757=200). It was so old, there were still ashtrays in the back of the cabin!"
Cons: "The D gate area for check-in is a zoo, and we saw more than one couple looking for the correct gate. We were charged a bag fee of $77. IF one goes on line 36 hours before you can get if for $55. We were unaware that the bag wasn't included (our bad, of course), but when we pointed out that on Iceland Air check in there was NO place that asked for bags?? They said it was our fault for not "reading the fine print". We can only check in 24 hours in advance, so WHO would think to "manage trip"...36 hours in advance?? Especially in rural Iceland which is where we were 36 hours ahead of time. We would have gladly paid the discounted rate for the bag, but no on was willing to help us with that, so we got soaked for $77 and were told to take our concerns to Iceland air customer service."
Pros: "Just enough room to be comfortable and the seats reclined enough so you could sleep. But I watched three good movies instead."
Cons: "I would have looked led a free cookie."
Pros: "Good movies, good amount of leg room for coach, transfers are super easy in Iceland (KEF)."
Cons: "They waved a 95$ checked bag fee for me so when your booking look to see if its included. No free food on the plane and Iceland can be expensive."
Pros: "Flight attendants seemed nice."
Cons: "I think Icelandair maybe the most disorganized flight I’ve ever been on. 3 of our 4 of flights were delayed, one for 3.5 hours. Found it amusing How they provided a 14£ Refreshment Compensation but announced it after almost every restaurant had closed. Information agents were either unavailable or late when an issue was present and weren’t helpful most of the time. I would do my best to never fly IA again or recommend them to anyone, especially those traveling to and from the US/Europe."
Pros: "On the flight, the stewardesses were kind and patient"
Cons: "Ridiculously long delay, not great communication, no complimentary food offered or other compensation/empathy. On flight, update movie selection please?"
Cons: "Refreshment cam 3 hours after departure Wait lines everywhere because the plane was not ready when they opened the gate"
Cons: "No free meal or alcohol. Small seats."
Pros: "Crew was very nice and helpful."
Cons: "When we were at the gate ready to board. They seemed a bit disorganized. They checked us in and told us to wait at the bottom of the escalators, which were not on and blocked off. People were confused on why we were sent though but not allowed up the escalators to board the plane. Eventually they came to let us up and board, but it was just a strange way of doing things."
Cons: "No complimentary meal for international flight or even snacks. Food for purchase not great and expensive. Seats not very comfortable and in our row could not raise arm rests."
Pros: "They are very good with kids."
Cons: "Adult meals were not included, and I wish they would have offered water more often given the length of the flight."
Pros: "Otherwise excellent service yet again, but..."
Cons: "the airport's getting too small for the amount of flights leaving. almost impossible to get to gates because of people waiting to board blocking the corridors, the lines to everything were too long. Also the way random security checks were organized was terrible."
Cons: "A youth group of some kind caused my flight to be nearly two hours delayed because they lost two of their kids and a chaperone, then refused to board without them. Icelandair made it the problem of everyone else on the plane rather than deal with the minority of passengers. As a result, I missed my connection flight and my total trip time had nearly five hours added to it. It is doubtful I will ever fly Icelandair in the future."
Pros: "My luggage made it."
Cons: "We got to Iceland late, ran to the gate to catch the next flight, got on and found out you don't provide a meal. It's one thing to have time to buy food you actually want before you board, but if it's your fault for a delayed flight, it just seems unfair. We had already been traveling for 6 hours and it was dinner time when we boarded. The flight took off (and unlike most flights I've ever been on) the crew took until close to 9;00 to serve us anything. Needless to say we were hungry, tired, and frustrated to pay for overpriced small portions of junk food. Not even complimentary pretzels?! I was more comfortable on my hour long flight to Boise from Seattle where we got free snacks and the flight crew booked it to get us drinks before turbulence set in and they had to sit down. Also, though the exit row gives extra leg room, not being able to put your seat back on an 8 hour flight is tough. In the past I've had amazing experiences with Iceland Air. I'm sad to say this time wasn't one of them."
Cons: "Not only are food prices high in Iceland... they make you pay for food on a 8 hour trams-continental flight!!! Ugh!"
Pros: "On time departure, on time arrival and good in flight service provided by excellent flight attendants."
Cons: "Confusion at the airport, but that was due to sheer number of travelers. The airline staff handled it very well."
Cons: "It was difficult to go seven hours without complimentary snacks - even pretzels would have been helpful! As a traveling student, I couldn't justify spending money to eat on the plane so I just made sure I packed my own food."
Pros: "Adequate space around seat; movies"
Cons: "Flight delayed >hour with passengers already on plane which made being on a 7+ hour flight even longer; terminal at Reykjavik was very crowded without adequate seating; food very expensive and long lines."
Cons: "The over size baggage drop and check in process were very lengthy and fraught with problems."
Pros: "The airline was wonderful and managed to get us through the airport with such a small layover. Your employees in rekjiavik are awesome!"
Pros: "Non stop flights, free 7 day layovers Fair to competitive pricing Clean planes, lovely staff"
Cons: "Food us only available for purchase, per usual, steep prices for airplane food. Variety is alright, quality is fair. Not use to an international flight not offering food. Entertainment was slim on blockbuster movies. Don't forget to bring your own head phones or available for purchase."
Cons: "Food was available but cost $$$$, on such a long flight I would expect a complimentary meal, or at least a snack. NA beverages were free at least."
Pros: "I liked the in flight entertainment."
Cons: "The cabin was way over heated and the boarding process was unnecessarily long and arduous. The flight was extremely turbulent after the captain guaranteed good weather."
Pros: "The entertainment was great. It made my 8 hour flight bearable as I had something to watch/listen to."
Cons: "I must have had some bad luck because I was sitting next to an Icelandic man who was incredibly chatty and intoxicated. I kept wondering when the flight would cut off his consumption because throughout the entire 8 hour flight, he ordered drink after constant drink. Two wine bottles and countless vodkas. The amount of his drinking added to his rude behavior and he spoke very ignorantly and blatantly rude about my home country. I was discouraged when no staff member cut him off or asked him to behave respectfully. It was a very uncomfortable flight."
Pros: "The entertainment screen is very good and offers lots of choices, especially important on a long flight."
Cons: "The boarding process was something I've never encountered, and I've been flying for many years.. It was a cold rainy afternoon and all passengers were told to get on a bus out on the tarmac. We walked out through gale force winds to get to the bus. There were approximately 100 people on the buses. There were no seats bus and we all stood jammed together for at least half and hour, not knowing why or how long we would be there. An elderly man standing behind me said he thought he was going to have heart attack. The windows were all steamed up but someone finally opened one to let in some air. Even when we finally all got settled in the plane for the flight, there was no explanation, compensation or apology for the crazy bus caper. I will never fly Icelandic Air again."
Cons: "The chicken curry was abysmal and very expensive for what was provided. The crew did not come through to collect garbage after the meal so we had to have our tables down for most of the flight which really limits leg room. Lineups were ridiculously slow and there was inadequate sitting room prior to flights."
Cons: "The boarding process in Reykjavik was very out of control in the sense that people lined up in the hall and had no place to sit for a long. Of time waiting for them to start boarding the plane."
Pros: "We arranged for exit row seats, which were more spacious than expected."
Cons: "Food selection on the plane is very limited, quite expensive, and not that interesting. And no free nibbles. Keflavik Airport is new, but much too small to accommodate the number of customers passing through with very limited seating, a good commissary with ready-to-eat items but no eating area. Boarding was not sequential by section, but a kind of free-for-all that really slowed the entire process."
Pros: "Liked that it was a direct flight, and thus was convenient. Decent seats and nice to have aisle seat."
Cons: "1)In flight food--No included food or alcohol on an 8 hour international flight?? In all of my travels, I have NEVER seen this. Seems cheap. Didn't even include peanuts or pretzels!! Glad we brought our own food onto flight, after having learned the hard way on way over to Europe from Seattle. Over $15 for a sandwich?? Absurd 2)Coming back from Iceland to Seattle, I saw many open seats in the Exit row, and the stewardesses refused to allow anyone to sit there, including a kind elderly couple whose husband was randomly selected to go through an hour-long stressful security check (despite being enrolled in the Global Entry program)."
Pros: "The blankets were warm and he entertainment had a good selection."
Cons: "No free food on a 7.5 hour flight.... and the food options were so meh. I bought this measly little salad for 13€ both ways and was still starving but kind of opposed to spending more on what was essentially a lean-cuisine with the Iceland logo. For reference, a 10 year old ate 3 of the in-flight meals (so about 40€ worth. That's how small these things were). Overall decent flight but I saw no difference in service or amenities on this transatlantic flight compared to any domestic flight."
Cons: "The boarding process was chaotic it started late and then by allowing everyone to board at once it created a rush to the desk. People were not held to the one personal item and one carry on rule causing there to be a lack of space in the overhead compartments. The aircraft was out of date, the entertainment screens and charging ports in my whole row were broken."
Pros: "(The same evaluation applies to this flight as to the previous flight from Brussels.)"
Cons: "The boarding process was very poor. There were at least 4 US-bound international flights crammed into a tiny corner of the airport, all trying to board simultaneously (Denver, Chicago, Boston, Seattle). There were hundreds (maybe a thousand) of people standing shoulder to shoulder trying to get to their gate. There were few, if any, overhead announcements to inform passengers of the boarding status. There was no organization to the boarding process. We didn't board by group, zone or row, so it was a free-for-all on the plane. This led to very long boarding times. I think the boarding situation was actually dangerous. If there had been a fire or an emergency in that boarding area, there's no way those several-hundred passengers would be able to exit the area safely."
Pros: "Crew was helpful. Legroom was good."
Cons: "We had to buy headset and food onboard for an international flight of seven hours. Cheap airline, charging premium prices. We will never fly Icelandair again."
Pros: "The smallest plane with the LEAST comfort I have EVER experienced! NO space, NO sleeping, CONSTANTLY being run into by the cart AND people in the aisle; a REALLY horrible flight! I will NEVER ride that plane again! Get new wider planes NOW!"
Pros: "In flight entertainment was good"
Cons: "A warm meal would be nice."
Pros: "The crew was amazing! Really went out of their way to make everyone comfortable. It was freezing on the flight and the flight attendant looked all over the plane to find me a blanket. She was extremely attentive. The entertainment selection was great, made the long flight go by very fast."
Cons: "You have to pay for food, which I would have been fine with had it not been over priced and tiny portions. It was $13 for the one real meal, and it was like a 3rd of a portion. I could have had 3. I ended up spending almost $40 to fill me up on food for the flight. The flight was extremely cold."
Pros: "- We arrived safely. - Crew was cordial, polite and professional. - Company allows delaying flight delay up to a week free of charge, to enable tourism in Iceland (we did not take advantage this time)."
Cons: "- Reykjavik airport boarding is a mess (as always). No waiting area with seating near gates. People are standing in hallways like cattle. - Plane was louder than usual, even though we were seated near front, 2 rows behind first class. - insufficient legroom for taller people. - company charges extra for exit row seats. - no complimentary food, except for children under 12, for a transatlantic flight. - some trash (plastic bottles) left under seats from previous flight. - human waste smell from septic tank in cabin toward end of flight."
Pros: "The move choices were good. The food and wine options were decent."
Cons: "The boarding process was confusing. Once boarding began, there was no attention paid to distancing guidelines. I heard the crew make announcements about mask requirements but never saw anyone being directly reprimanded or corrected for not wearing a mask or not covering their nose while boarding or walking around the cabin. Even though I only counted fewer than 20 passengers for over 100 seats, upon boarding, three solo passengers were assigned to sit in adjacent seats, with me in the row directly in front of them and another passenger in the row directly behind them. There was no precaution to space out passengers whatsoever. I had tried to choose my seating during check in but the online app was difficult to understand what seats were actually open or taken. Once I boarded it was clear the online information was incorrect. With so few passengers, the gate crew could easily have taken the time to review seating and re-seated customers for improved health and safety. This was my first time flying during COVID and I had thought airlines were doing more to instill trust in customers to keep customers flying but I will not be flying again until COVID is over as I did not see precautions keeping customers safe."
Pros: "The crew was very helpful. Made sure I was comfortable."
Cons: "The request for Wheel Chair at London was never registered...Had to run around with impaired leg on a short connection (1.5 hours). The service for Wheelchair request not being honored saying that there was no such request."
Pros: "There was a good selection of very different movies to watch. I found four that I wanted to see."
Cons: "There were not enough chairs in the waiting area. There was a long wait, first, just to get on the plane, then, instead of letting us stay in the waiting area, we were all seated, and left waiting for at least an hour, most of that time without explanation, sitting in a stifling plane at the gate, without being allowed to get up and move around. Also, the ratio of carbohydrates to protein in the main meal was way out of kilter. I don't want rice + potatoes + bread + crackers all in one meal, with zero vegetables. The tiny piece of cheese helped."
Pros: "made it safe to Seattle"
Cons: "Bad attitude of an attendant at the airport when inquiring about seat change for medical reasons. Complete ignorance during flight, no water or snack offered to me during 6 hour flight while a flight attendant paid a lot of attention to two ladies sitting close by."
Cons: "Our baggage was delayed coming off the plane in Seattle and getting to the carousel. When we were finally able to claim our baggage in customs, the gate said it was too late to re-check them through to Seattle, so they had to re-book us for a later flight. So after 13 hours of travel (with a toddler, which makes everything harder), we had to wait an unexpected 3 hours at Seatac to board a plane home. It was terrible. The BA representative at the baggage claim was incredibly dismissive and rude to everyone. It really was miserable."
Pros: "Food and entertainment"
Cons: "The seats in flight are very small and not comfortable.Food quality also poor as they don't even provide fruits in flight.The food is junk."
Pros: "The cabin crew were excellent. The food service was very good. Entertainment choices were abundant and generally good."
Cons: "Reaching our connecting flight. The Bataan death march comes to mind—concourse 3 to 5, oh my! Having got through all the hurdles including incomprehensible up, down, up again down again escalator rides and security pat down for my wife we got to Concourse 5 where we learned our plane was leaving from C gates, but not which C gate. So we looked for directions to C gates. The only signage was for C gates 52 to 57. Common sense would lead one to believe that C gates 1 to 51 existed somewhere in the terminal; but no they do not and not many people are aware that they don’t. There has to be a better way. Perhaps before Brexit becomes a reality you could lean on Germany’s vaunted efficiency to help clean up this nightmare scenario."
Pros: "Food was OK"
Cons: "Ridiculous last-minute gate change with no notice in Frankfurt forced us to go through security twice and throw away our refreshment purchases. US Customs and Passport Control at Seatac was disorganized and downright surly. My spouse and I were separated on the flight and there is no room for adult bodies to sit with so many seats across without being pressed uncomfortably into strangers for nine hours. It is nearly impossible to sleep under such inhuman conditions. Shame on British Airways for putting profit over service and comfort."
Pros: "Muslim meal caters are not good at all. Need to have better meals"
Cons: "The food was not up to the standard. Also felt discrimination in the crew staff"
Pros: "comfortable seats, pleasant atmosphere, nice landing"
Cons: "lousy sound quality with the ear phones"
Pros: "This was actually a very pleasant trip. Left a few minutes late (minor mechanical issue) but arrived right on time. Crew was courteous and efficient. The food was the best I have had on any airline in years. Entertainment included a good selection of recent movies."
Cons: "I'm 6'2" and slender - those seats are tight in both leg room and shoulder width, hence the "OK" rating for comfort. I was fortunate that my seat mates were also slender so none of us overlapped the armrests, and that the person ahead of me never reclined their seat because I have no idea of where my legs would have fitted had they done so. The only other gripe is that the volume of the entertainment system seems disconnected from the announcement system. The announcement system is WAY louder than the entertainment system - painfully so. I noticed many others around me also ripping off their headphones when a crew announcement commenced."
Pros: "It got me where I needed to be with a reasonable seat. I got a arrival card from the flight attendants."
Cons: "The boarding process was not very clear because we were away for the first announcement and then no more details were provided that we heard, so we just got in line. It seemed like nothing was free on board, including water but I could be wrong. If there was free stuff, it was not clear, which is annoying. They gave me an arrival card, but no pen or pencil or anything to write with."
Cons: "The plane was actually about to fly off when it suddenly skidded to a stop. We weren't informed about the reason, but all of a sudden, the plane couldn't take off for over two hours. My family and I ended up missing our connecting flight home. BA tried compensating with food vouchers and rebooking us onto another flight, but our family got split up in the process and we were all assigned to different middle seats."
Pros: "The crew and the plan and the service were all top notch. However, their new policy as of 1/1/2018 in which they even charge for coffee and water seems very misplaced and excessive."
Cons: "Their new policy as of 1/1/2018 in which they even charge for coffee and water on short flights (Madrid to London in this case) seems excessive, even in this day of ala carte flying. :-("
Pros: "Ice cream. Nowday, on flight food is hard to find the tasty one."
Pros: "Liked the food and drink service, as well as the on flight entertainment, movies, games, language game."
Cons: "This was in coach class, so I understand the cramped quarters, but even on a long haul flight (BA 49, LHR-SEA), how could they justify the seating in the planes? Perhaps BA executives should fly coach class on one of these planes to understand what they are putting their customers up to. Here are 2 additional items that should be a no-brainer to fix: a) They ran out of fresh bottled water. For the last one hour, all they could offer was sparkling water b) Somehow BA seem to be saving on food portions (or their caterer needs to be changed) - lunch/dinner portions are way too small."
Pros: "Behavior of board personnel"
Cons: "The delay in London"
Pros: "The cabin crew was nice. The main dish was good. The entertainment choices were decent and the system worked fine. I don't sleep in planes so it's important to me. I got a forward facing seat so at least I didn't have to deal with the alternative."
Cons: "Not being able to make seat assignment earlier (i.e. 24h) was lame for a business flight. The second meal was mediocre, as was coffee. The screen of my entertainment system was scratched and cracked, but it didn't disturb me too much."
Cons: "British Airways continued giving us hassle about guitar carry-on even though there has never been a problem with finding room for it by plane crew once plane is boarded."
Pros: "It was all good."
Cons: "No complaints"
Pros: "amazingly the flight was only half full ..... seat was comfortable .... had lots of room .... had 3 seats to myself ..... best flight in a long time ....."
Cons: "For long trips I do not think I could do the standard class again. There was not enough room for me at 2 meters tall and I was rather uncomfortable in the middle seat"
Pros: "entertainment and crew on the plane were great!"
Cons: "I was moved to standby coming from London back to Seattle. The check in attendant notified me that b/c I hadn't check in 24hrs in a advance, I was bumped. I never received any notifications via Kayak or BA to check in...I almost didn't make it home."
Pros: "Flight attendants were to top in the industry. Caring and caring. They are the face of your airline. Give them the right tools, they function well. I could not have been treated better as a Frequent traveler."
Cons: "Reservation process online does not show you that you are buying a bullshit Business Class seat. You pay a premium for Business class and granted, the meal was great, something the Coach class did not get BUT they should tell you when booking that that you are sitting in coach with a table blocking the middle seat, not truly a Business class seat. Dumb down your operations but don't insult your customers. Tell them what they are getting when booking a bus type business class seat. Worst business practice ever, driven by European style of travel BUT call it premium economy, not BUSINESS."
Pros: "That food and drinks, including wine, were served for free. That the on board entertainment had lots of options that were well rated, recent, and were all free. The touchscreen was the best I've seen so far on airlines"
Cons: "The flight map was not working and the attendant didn't know what we were flying over (probably Greenland)."
Pros: "Good crew communications. Polite service. Good food"
Cons: "Poor ventilation - too hot."
Pros: "I loved the on-demand entertainment which starts as soon as you board the plane and continues all the way into landing / taxing to the gate."
Cons: "The system would not allow me to check-in / get my boarding passes 24 hrs prior to barding, which basically left me with a middle seat all the way to Seattle. I considered this a terrible process and didn't get a good explanation why I was blocked from doing my check-in online."
Cons: "My entertainment voice did I not work. After four hours of the trip they gave me a another headset and thst worked. When I adjecfor decaf coffee, they didn't bring it and seemed annoyed after two asks I got sone, tasted like Nescafé. Food was scare, very surprised there were no snacks after meal was served for a ten hour flight until the end when a small sandwich was served."
Pros: "I love to fly on BA. Along with KAL, it is my favorite."
Cons: "Only problem this time was that the video monitors in the Economy class on the entire right side (Seats I-J-K) went out early in the flight and could not be repaired."
Cons: "Food was not good"
Pros: "I appreciated to entertainment choices. Also the crew came through with water and fruit juice frequently, very nice"
Pros: "Crew, food, entertainment all good. USB charging a nice touch"
Cons: "We purchased two tickets together but were assigned seats far apart. We couldn't check in using on-line app. It wanted Visa information for USA travel even though we are US citizens, all info was entered into our flight, and we had already flown the outbound leg. The partner airline for the first leg checked us in, noted that our seats were separate and said they unable to change it. We called BA customer service - they were unable to change our seats. On arrival at Heathrow there was a huge wait at the BA processing center, when we finally presented our boarding passes and asked for a change the representative told us there was no time and we should run to our gate. I sat next to two people traveling solo so sitting together was obviously no problem Seating people on a combined booking separately, and never finding a solution other than "run to your gate, we are really behind" is verging on terrible customer service."
Pros: "Free soft drinks. Average boarding speed. Was able to bring on my rather large carry on bag."
Cons: "Like the flight from Amsterdam to Philadelphia, the seats were extremely uncomfortable and wouldn't go back much at all. On this flight my tray was also broken so I couldn't ever put any drinks on it without them spilling everywhere. The flight attendants were the worst ones I have ever had on a flight. Very unpleasant and rude. They would barely pay attention to customers and would only gossip when they were making their rounds down the isles. One of them made an attempt to bump either my arm or my leg every time she walked paste me, not once apologizing. It was very clear that she was doing it on purpose. At one point she even kept bending over to get into one of her drawers on her cart and kept shoving her butt into my shoulder and in my face repeatedly without acknowledging me at all. I was returning from a trip overseas and my appearance was less than business casual but that is no excuse to treat me like that or any other customer riding on this airline. I enjoyed my flights with British Airways on my way to Europe. It's extremely unfortunate that these two airlines are sister companies and transfer people between them. From now on I will actively avoid taking any flights on a American Airlines unless I have absolutely no other option. Sadly, this may mean avoiding British Airways as well. It's sad when Allegiant Air offers better flights than such a reputable airline, such as this."
Cons: "Arrived on plane, pilot announced flight was completely booked, crew was short staffed and thanked us for our understanding. What?! How can a plane take off without all the crew? This was flight 49, a 777! Just prior to take off the flight attendant said I had to put away my iPad. (That's a first) Once airborne I attempted to recline my seat (32C), the button was completely pushed in to the armrest, broken. I told one flight attendant, she said she'd look into it. 20 minutes later I stopped another flight attendant, she said the cabin was completely booked & offered a seat in the very last row (which also doesn't recline!). Upright for 10 hours is not acceptable. Only 1 option for meal, other had ran out. Just prior to landing a different flight attendant said I had to put away my pillow (which was in my lap during take off & nothing was said then!) but said nothing at all about my iPad. Please ensure your flight attendants are consistent! I will not fly British Airways again."
Pros: "Flight crew did a nice job and seemed to enjoy what they do."
Cons: "When you book your ticket you should be able to choose your seat without having to pony up $35 to do it, I don't understand why you have to wait until you check -in 24 hours before your flight to get a "free" seat. Food was just okay. Seats not that comfortable."
Cons: "My connecting flight was late, and I missed this flight."
Pros: "Frequent beverage service and decent food. My wife and I enjoyed catching up on several movies that we otherwise had ignored."
Cons: "Heathrow Airport is a horrible mess. It seems our soft shell carry-on luggage that fit fine above us on our previous British airways flight was now too large and had to be check. This bothered me greatly as multiple individuals with hard shell carry-on luggage rolled by without so much as a word. It appeared that whomever decided the seating arrangements was drunk. All of our previous flights my wife and I were seated next to each other. This flight we were seated in two different rows. After several trades (I think four) we were able to sit next to each other. I had attempted 24 hours prior to the flight to select our seats but was unable to do this without paying $50."
Pros: "We had a very helpful terminal emplyee help us get from our arrival gate to our departure gate. I know he doesn't work for you but he was great. The arrival gate personnel (including pilots) were very sympathetic to our frustration (not having our wheelchair) and worked hard to get us to the departure gate. Good work!!"
Pros: "Short flight"
Cons: "Very hard landing and no entertainment"
Pros: "Free movies and food."
Cons: "Your call center, some reps were not helpful. You charge outrageous sums for people to sit together. Only one coke on a 9 hour flight?"
Cons: "for my flight from London to Seattle I tried to check in the day before online and it said online check in was unavailable. Then when i got to the airport in London i tried checking in at the kiosk and it said it could not confirm my booking. i was brought to a help desk where they said they had to release a seat for me because the flight was so full. It was very stressful and the employees didn't seem too concerned. I understand they may deal with this on a daily basis but to me it was scary to think i may not get on a plane home when i paid over $1000.00 and it wouldn't let me check in early. I would have appreciated a little empathy."
Pros: "BA has the best airline food. Our flight was 9 hours, and they served a full meal with wine early on, and a snack box toward the end. The flight crew is outstanding. The in-flight movies were good, with a decent choice of recent movies."
Cons: "These were the smallest airplane seats I've ever encountered. On the leg from Seattle to London, I was in a window seat and my 6'2" husband was wedged in a middle seat. We were both cramping up halfway through the flight. When the person in front of me reclined his seat, my meal ended up in my lap. On the London-to-Seattle return trip, for some reason, the airline changed our seats so we weren't sitting together, and changed us both to middle seats. The agent at the gate said the plane was full, but managed to get us both aisle seats. I would highly recommend an aisle seat since it's easier to get in and out to stretch the legs."
Pros: "The staff was very friendly."
Cons: "I would have preferred something more to eat, and to have my own entertainment unit."
Pros: "The crew were all very nice and accommodating."
Cons: "The flight was 3 hours delayed. The entertainment systems failed multiple times and needed to be re-set each time."
Cons: "Seats seemed hard and less leg room than some other flights"
Pros: "Boarding was efficient and the plane was comfortable. Food service was very good: entree + large snack for 9hr flight. Blanket, headsets, pillow and toothbrush/paste was supplied."
Cons: "Different than my previous flights on BA, the flight attendants in Economy were a bit dower and spoke with a rather clipped attitude. I had asked for tea when they came through with beverage choices in the beginning and they said I had to wait until after dinner. They did not return. I thought that was a bit odd since it is a British Airways flight and I had never had issued obtaining tea before. I saw them be pretty abrupt with other guests as well."
