Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "The crew was good, and the airline tried to make our wait in the airport as comfortable as possible."
Cons: "The four-hour delay was really hard. Since it was in DC, I don't know why it took so long to get another plane."
Pros: "After there was a problem with the plane once we had boarded, they were able to switch us to another plane at another gate. There was a short wait, and we only had a delay of 35 minutes."
Pros: "The staff was amazing"
Cons: "I had a very large (over weight person sitting next to me. She occupied about 6 inches of my seat. It was quite uncomfortable. Did my best to be very polite and accommodating but it was terribly uncomfortable and closterphobic."
Cons: "The flight was delayed over two hours"
Pros: "Fact that there’s a flight available to get me-from a to b, Crew were friendly-great, cabins clean."
Cons: "Expensive, Delayed flight, unable to hear and understand boarding announcements, No WiFi, and a magazine that caters to the top 5% of passengers. Then to top it off a lost bag and over 2.0 hours spent either on hold or awaiting a call back to resolve issues with my last bag-totally unacceptable"
Pros: "The crews were very fast and efficient. The Dinner was good but the breakfast was very basic."
Cons: "The seat was so crammy and disgustingly uncomfortable"
Pros: "Pedro helped me in Punta Cana with a wheelchair he went out of his way to make sure I was okay and comfortable. He was amazing! I so grateful for him."
Cons: "The trip from Atlanta Georgia to Austin Texas was TERRIBLE!! The delta staff working the counter in Atlanta were rude, I was actually forced to get a complete stranger to help me with my wheelchair because there was no staff to help me. I was yelled at by delta staff. It was a horrible experience."
Pros: "Matt was great. I had an exit row so it was comfortable."
Cons: "Deplaning takes FOREVER"
Pros: "Information communicated about delays."
Cons: "- more communication (any!) about bag status when landed - flight delay due to too many/too heavy baggage. Long delay was said to be due to making sure our baggage would accompany destination. Upon arrival, bag was left in NYC but this wasn't communicated. No info on bag status at airport or via ema"
Cons: "First class seats were too close together. It was very difficult to get out of you seat into the aisle. Food was not what it should have been for 1st class There was no wall between 1st class and coach giving little privacy when I worked my laptop. it was in direct view of the middle seat in coach"

Cons: "They canceled my flight"

Pros: "The crew was dealing with NOVA/DC residents"
Pros: "Coming from Europe Alitalia and Delta did an EXCELLENT job at assisting the passengers get rid of their luggage just as soon as we were done going through customs... I don't usually fly on this route, but I thought it was perfect. Transfer between Delta terminal was a breeze too..."
Cons: "I usually don't fly from JFK. The food court was expensive (18 dollars base price from a burger seems a high even for an airport. I don't fly from NY normally - so maybe I need to tune my expectation for the locale, and it may have NOTHING to do with the airline company."
Pros: "Seats were comfortable. On time. Entertainment was outstanding. Made the trip “fly” by!!"
Cons: "THE FLIGHT WAS 5 HOURS LATE"
Cons: "Gave confusing instructions on transfer"

Cons: "The aircraft is too old, MD-88. I don't know how Delta is flying that type of aircraft. Is very risky"
Pros: "Another safe flight. Crew was very attentive."
Pros: "Boarding was quick and efficient."
Cons: "- Paid EXTRA for an emergency exit row and it felt like I was sitting on a hard wooden box the entire flight. - Food was awful/barely edible. - Plane was old, dingy and dirty. Window shade was broken."
Cons: "Flight cancelled due to weather that was never bad but on the potential of bad weather. Had to scramble so my 18 year old son was not stranded overnight in a strange place and Delta does not help. Only rebooked a flight itinerary for the next day for a 4 hour flight with connections on a 1 hour direct flight. Spent an hour on line to figure out what to do. #neverdelta"
Cons: "Plane delayed 4 times for a total of 4 hours"
Pros: "The flight for getting us therw"
Cons: "No food and no entertainment"
Pros: "Everything was perfect and most of all ON TIME Thank you Delta!"
Pros: "Very quick boarding process. There was no entertainment so I couldn't rate that."
Cons: "There should be a N/A option if there is no entertainment available."
Pros: "First time with AmExp Delta so no baggage fee, zone 1 boarding. seats are fine, newer aircraft, snacks were good and entertainment was good and easy to use. Staff and attendants were friendly p. All good"
Cons: "As far as flying goes today no complaints. As compared to 30 years ago I could do a book but nothing to do with Delta"
Pros: "The gentleman at the gate was super helpful and helped us check our bags at the gate."
Cons: "Zero leg room. Zero arm room. The entertainment system did not function. No food for such a long flight unless you pay more then the food is actually worth."
Pros: "The crew was friendly, relaxed, made everything seem like a breeze"
Pros: "Only 15 minutes late"
Cons: "Like everyone, I dislike the tight seating."
Pros: "I could be wrong, but the seats were very comfortable (for a plane) and I felt my knees weren't as close to the seat in front of me than other airlines. So that's a plus."
Pros: "Comfortable flight, ample leg room, and the chairs were pretty plush. Comfort+ is pretty nice"
Cons: "On my first flight they forgot to turn the wifi on. I have unlim data but obviously can't use while in air; no big though."
Pros: "The customer service was amazing! The amenities made the flight entertaining and enjoyable. The pilot key us informed."
Cons: "Middle seats are physically uncomfortable."
Pros: "flight attendants were great."
Cons: "not enough leg room and space. The business class should be at the minimum for economy."
Pros: "flight was on time, food was good"
Cons: "entertainment was not working, not enough legroom"
Pros: "Hassle free left on time arrived early San Jose nice airport and drive to red wood city picturesque Staff friendly and cookies great"
Cons: "On this occasion I actually enjoyed it all"
Cons: "Takeoff was delayed approx 4 hours which made me miss my connection and prolonged the whole travel day."
Cons: "I wouldn't rate this flight on a five-star grid--I give it 0.0 stars. Delta's economy seats are so tiny that even a small person like myself finds it agonizing to ride in them for a moderate-length flight. We need aggressive regulation of our airlines to prevent the unconscionable and humiliating way they treat economy passengers. It's not safe, healthy or humane to ask human beings to sit for hours in tiny spaces with very little air (on top of everything else, the plane was mercilessly hot the whole time). Next time I will choose a European carrier--even the discount Euro carriers are better than any US airline."
Pros: "The crew was polite and friendly"
Cons: "My second plane had sooo much moisture coming from the cooling system it looked like the passengers were getting gased and I kept getting wet from water condensation falling on me in a window seat as I tried to sleep from having such an early flight to begin with only to be told it's delayed 3 hrs without explanation."
Pros: "Good seats."
Pros: "Free drinks in Comfort+"
Cons: "See above description"
Pros: "Entertainment is now free."
Cons: "This was the fourth first class leg of our overall trip and the first three flights on Delta were great. The attendants were pleasant and even fun. I have allergies and requested a special meal on all legs. No problem on the first three flights. All attendants approached me to confirm my allergy and the special meal. They were very polite. But on this flight, the attendant didn't speak with me about it at all. She tried to give me the regular meal. When I explained I needed an allergy free meal (mind you this was first class), I was told I could not get it and got no apology or other accommodation. Her attitude was take it or leave it. I found this interesting since on two of the other flights an announcement was made about another passenger with an allergy to peanuts so no one could have them on the flights and the attendants were very concerned."
Pros: "Flight attendants were great."
Cons: "Movie and TV selection is not great for an international flight."
Pros: "We liked the jet-ways to get to the plane, the food was acceptable. the plane was clean and the crew was helpful. The missing luggage was found and delivered to my home."
Cons: "The seats were so tight that even average size people had trouble getting their seats back a little. Somehow kids were placed in exit rows and seat exchanges had to be made. They ended up in my row. One piece of my luggage showed it was available at the conveyor but couldn't be found. It delayed our long day and was frustrating to think it was missing. No distinction where Delta has it's gates in Mexico City."
Pros: "Comfort with entertainment."
Cons: "No food options at all."
Pros: "The entertainment screen was good. The food was acceptable. The crew was very nice and friendly."
Cons: "The seating. Isn't that always the case. Buy a standard seat and be squished like you don't matter - just an afterthought - and if you wanted better, spend another $100 bucks or so. Add to that insult the fact that my wife and I couldn't even sit together because we couldn't choose seats until we arrived at the airport. Really."
Pros: "Great service across the board! Wonderful, experienced staff!"
Cons: "Seat space was inadequate. My shoulders are 4 inches wider than the seat space including both shared arm rests."
Pros: "Seats were comfortable and crew super friendly"
Cons: "Choice of food and entertainment could have been better"
Pros: "everything was good."
Cons: "It was no choices with meal because everybody took the chicken. Food can be better. Stuff can be more cheerful..."
Cons: "Requested vegetarian and was served vegan"
Pros: "Boarding was ok. Crews not bad. Comfort ok."
Cons: "Food terrible. Please improve. If Lufthansa will like to continue carrying passengers from and to Nigeria they need to be giving the Nigerian passengers more than pester/spaghetti."
Pros: "The food was pretty good. Entertainment selection was good!"
Cons: "Boarding was delayed for some reason. It seemed like every baby in the world was on the plane, and they all cried at the same time. Of course, Lufthansa can't help that. The on-flight entertainment system was painfully slow."
Pros: "- crew was great - food"
Cons: "- turbulence - boarding time delayed - tv touch screen"
Pros: "Good food, considerate cabin crew, good entertainment. For a long flight it was as good as you can expect."
Cons: "Seats are cramped, at the mercy of people in front and behind you in terms of comfort."
Pros: "Regardless the delay, the company feed us with sandwich and snacks to pass the time"
Cons: "The only thing I didn't like was that I wanted to watch the The Boss baby movie and it was unavailable. All other movies were ok"
Pros: "They did offer an extra snack and drinks for the delay... but still..."
Cons: "3 hour delay on tarmac, on a 9 hour flight already... not fun."
Pros: "Flight from Budapest to Munich was slightly delayed and I had a tight connection time to begin with. The effort the Lufthansa staff made to get me to me connection was heroic."
Pros: "They fed us eventually. We landed safely. Crew wasn't rude."
Cons: "I am only 158cm tall (5 feet 2 inches) and I had no leg room! My knees hit the seat in front of me. The seats were also so narrow that you could not change position at all, so it was very uncomfortable for a 8.5 hour flight. And I weigh less than 45 kg (100lbs). I can't imagine how anyone bigger than me felt. My seat was toward the back of the plane, and it took the crew over an hour to reach us once they started the drink and food carts. One time my row got entirely skipped for the drink cart, even though we were awake. This was a problem because they didn't come by for another 5.5 hours with more water/drinks, and they did not give us water bottles for that time period like Delta does. The food wasn't tasty, but it was eatable. The movie options were great, but that was all I could do on the screen because half of mine did not respond to touch, which meant no games and I could only select movies on the left half of my screen. Weird."
Pros: "I love that the connecting flight wasn't through Lufthansa. As the original flight was delayed so long, I had to fly home on another airline."
Cons: "That Lufthansa didn't actually get me on my connecting flight. That's what I didn't like about this flight: that it didn't happen."
Cons: "Space and overall comfort of economy class"
Pros: "Decent selection of movies."
Cons: "cause it was a sauna. Temperature of the airplane was waaay to hot. Individual seats didn't have control of any vents. I had to get up and walk to bathroom area just to cool off."
Pros: "The cabin crew was welcoming and kind. The trip was comfortable as well"
Cons: "Non that i know of"
Pros: "The food was great."
Cons: "There isn't much leg room."
Cons: "My bag is missing am so worry about that To IAD LH 0418/25 VIA FRA LH 0693/25 VIA 0220 216418 LH 216418"
Cons: "For a transatlantic flight, boarding was one mass stampede, seats were hard as a rock, tight, media "touch" screen had to be punched to work, worst selection of entertainment film & TV show options I can remember for an overseas flight"
Pros: "Nice flight."
Cons: "Delayed flight."
Pros: "Overall excellent experience."
Cons: "Flight sat at the gate for an hour due to take-off slot, reached 45 minutes late."
Pros: "crew very helpful and accommodating. served two meals and complimentary beverages including beer, wine, spirits"
Cons: "movie selection limited"
Cons: "This was a very tight confection. When selling international connections the layover needs to allow enough time to exit the plane, cross a huge airport and go through passport control. Boarding starts early and this connection was barely enough time."
Pros: "Attendants were pleasant"
Cons: "We were delayed on the tarmac for an hour and a half"
Pros: "Decent choice of entertainment options, though the selection of more recent titles was limited, food was fine for airline food. The crew was, as always on Lufthansa, pleasant, courteous and helpful."
Cons: "Flight left 20 minutes late"
Pros: "Very friendly and efficient crew. Good food and entertainment. On schedule."
Pros: "Great movie choices"
Cons: "Temperamental touch screen was frustrating."
Pros: "On time. Friendly helpful crew. Comfortable seats. Free wine with meals."
Pros: "Smiles from the male and female stewards. Being gracious to customers and treating them with respect....keeping us from getting bored"
Cons: "the Airbus was much more crowded than the Boeing (777) we flew over on and run by United. When food/trash was being passed, it was tough for passengers coming from the rest room to get back to their seat."
Cons: "Woman across the isle from me fell asleep and let her two toddlers run wild."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Leg room"
Pros: "I paid an additional fee for a seat with more legroom....a great investment! Also, crew members were very attentive and courteous."
Cons: "All good"
Cons: "This was the coldest flight I ever flew- the temperature was probably in the 50s. For 9 hours when even 3 blankets were not enough to keep us to a decent temperature. Also the crew was very cold and dismissive. They were very aggressive towards two other passengers."
Cons: "No major issue."
Pros: "Crew was very professional, friendly and helpfull. Fantastic entertainment selection. It was a pleasure."
Cons: "The seat space a bit tight in economy."
Pros: "The overall experience was great."
Cons: "Food could be higher quality."
Pros: "Smooth flight, attendants were attentive"
Cons: "Seats way too close when reclining You sh know the ingredients of meals served Why not serve real fruit? Apples bananas etc Unable to check in online ...thus had poor seats and no upgrade opportunities"
Pros: "Ease of boarding. Plenty of luggage space. Friendly and courteous crew"
Cons: "Last snack of ham and cheese was aweful"
Pros: "staff at airport were friendly, helpful"
Cons: "telephone reps NOT helpful and do not know the airplane seat maps"
Pros: "Staff was friendly and the flight was pleasant.The schedule was very convenient"
Pros: "We had nothing to complain about and much to be happy about. The seating in economy (seats 36A and 36C and an Airbus 330-300) was generous compared to other airlines we've flown recently (e.g., on a 777 with United on the way over, and that was "Economy PLUS!). The food was much better than the United flight, and really, it was almost too much. I'm home 14 hours after landing and I'm still not hungry. They were also very generous with the drinks and worked to keep us well hydrated with water and juices. The crew was very pleasant and accommodating. Overall, it was a great experience and I will certainly look to Lufthansa first for my next transatlantic flight."
Cons: "My one gripe was that it was very hard to hear the audio on the in-flight entertainment system. I even abandoned one movie I really wanted to see because I couldn't follow the dialogue. Also, I discovered late in the flight that the view screen pivoted and this would have helped in enjoying the videos more. Here's an idea for Lufthansa: how about adding "Tips" to somewhere in the Entertainment system to improve your seat, viewing, and other experiences. For instance, I wasn't aware that the head cushion on the seats were adjustable to better support your head. One last thing, on the entertainment system, it appears to be browser based, but sadly lacks a "Back" button equivalent."
Pros: "Very friendly personal, good food and drinks."
Cons: "Delays in Nice led to a narrow window for connection. More than ten people were left behind - doors practically closed in our faces - and Lufthansa was wholly unhelpful in rescheduling flights. Lines to speak with agents were absurd and then attendants had to take breaks instead of resolve issues. There were no solutions offered, only poor communication and an unwillingness to accommodate a significant number of customers who were inconvenienced. Finally, a "random inspection" led to a handful of passengers being surveyed by the German local police. Interestingly, a number of us were Hispanic Americans. The whole experience was extremely negative."
Pros: "Overall good."
Cons: "Quantity of food served was very less. They could have given more."
Pros: "Crew was extremely friendly! Great variety of the newest movies. Toilets were always kept clean."
Cons: "Horrible food: over-salted and "mystery meat" for lunch; only given a small piece of bland cheese pizza for dinner and that was it. I suggest providing a small bottle of water for a long flight instead of a small cup of drink during the two meal times. I felt dehydrated during the flight (wasn't able to buy a bottle of water beforehand) and didn't want to keep buzzing the flight attendants repeatedly."
Cons: "Waited for 5 hours, and then rerouted to Houston"
Cons: "On our return flight from Munich to IAD the airline apparently switched the plane hours before departure. We did not receive notice of this and when we went to board we received new boarding passes. I was traveling with someone and so this reassignment meant not only that we were separated by that we were moved from an Aisle and a window seat together to both of us in middle seats. I understand that this change was out of ground crew control and so we waited to speak with agents about seeing if we could be seated together. While we waited patiently and were told that the only two seats together were both middle seats, the women who were waiting behind us and who were in the same situation as us (but much nor agitated and loud about the complaint) received upgrades to economy plus and were placed in an aisle seat. We were very disappointed with how this was handled and both of us being tall were very uncomfortable on the long flight."
Pros: "The flight was only about half full. Plenty of space, room to nap. Captain kept you advised and seemed to change altitude to avoid turbulence."
Pros: "Food and movies on board were good"
Cons: "Our flight was 3 hrs delayed so ended up missing our next flight. Also they said there would be someone outside the gate when we landed to help us figure out another flight if we were missing our connection and there was no one there. Had to go find a customer service desk. They did put us up in a hotel for the night but after 3 weeks abroad we were really looking forward to getting home. Also the landing was very rocky. I felt sea sick and a lady behind me was actually throwing up it was so rough."
Pros: "Salimos a tiempo . El business es muy confortable"
Cons: "La comida horrible . No se limpian los baños"
Pros: "The socks offered in business were comfortable and nice looking. The red wine was good."
Cons: "The food was just average and the seat not too comfortable"
Pros: "Everything works and quick to get to destination."
Cons: "Everything was OK"
Cons: "Boarding was chaotic & therefore delayed take off a little Receiving luggage was slow -@ 35 minutes from landing to luggage claim, so actual arrival was considerably later for those meeting me"
Pros: "Crew was great and helpful despite oversight in my special meal."
Cons: "Special meal request was overlook. I did not mind so much as eating less does some good! It is human to err!"
Cons: "Travelled business class and was ace experience"
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."
Cons: "1. In Flight Entertainment 2. Controlled In Flight Temperature"
Pros: "The bed was comfortable. Entertainment selection and large TV screen was good. The KLM crew is amazing, as usual."
Cons: "Food quality was not so good."
Cons: "This return flight was much better than the flight going to Amsterdam. I believe the biggest factor was the type of aircraft. The old 747 just didn't meet expectations. The newer 777 on the way back was much more comfortable, with better amenities."
Cons: "The plane was very hot"
Pros: "The crew"
Cons: "Seat comfort"
Pros: "My seat"
Cons: "My suitcase wasn’t in the plane. 8 hours in the plane and no one offered us water. We had to look for flight attendant. Entertainment wasn’t great not too many choices and quality of screens was poor"
Pros: "The crew was great but the seat wasn't as comfortable and didn't have much leg room."
Cons: "Flight cancelled"
Pros: "Crew was very friendly. Nice that wine was served without charge."
Cons: "Announcements from the cockpit were hard to hear. Food has been better in past."
Pros: "Great service"
Cons: "Services was pretty weird .. Perse or crew Leader was ok But the assistent Young one was Really bad.. aptitud and not friendly at all."
Pros: "Restrooms clean, decent food and drink, nice cabin crew."
Cons: "No complaints"
Pros: "Comfortable and well laid out seat area"
Cons: "Food was a little substandard for business class"
Pros: "Friendly crew."
Cons: "So many people on a 747!!"
Pros: "Great on board service from a very professional crew."
Cons: "Can't think of a thing."
Cons: "KLM lost my luggage during the layover. My luggage didn't arrive even after the next flight to Prague. Customer service wouldn't give me any idea what flight my luggage would arrive on, nor would they tell me what time my luggage might be delivered to me."
Pros: "The attendants took great care of us. Super smooth flight."
Cons: "We did not get two of baggage at the destination."
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: "On time"
Pros: "Very friendly service!"
Cons: "Amesterdam airport employee was really rude"
Pros: "Service impeccable!"
Cons: "They have one line of executive class after the kitchen and toilet, is very noisy."
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: "Without any explanation the plane I was due to go to Istanbul on at 11.30 was not available. I had to wait for a small plane coming from Edinburgh then wait for it to be emptied of passengers and cleaned. This meant we were over 2 hours late into Istanbul. No explanation or apology. I then missed my next flight in Istanbul and had to purchase another ticket. I cannot believe that air passengers are treated in this way!!! I will follow this up with KLM when I go home from my holiday."
Pros: "Cabin crew very pleasant"
Cons: "Lost our bags, little sympathy from staff"
Pros: "From pre-boarding, to boarding, to the food, and the attentiveness, everything was top notch! The cleanliness of the plane was only topped by the friendliness of the crew."
Cons: "The flight was marked at almost 11hrs but ended up being only 9...not a negative other than it meant not spending as much time on board!"
Pros: "Flight crew was pleasant and attentive. Seats were comfortable for economy as well. We were allowed to check in extra baggage for free at check in which really helped since we would be catching a connecting flight in Amsterdam"
Cons: "suitcase didn't turn up, although connection was quite tight"
Cons: "They didn’t let us board the plane. Allegedly the plane was changed and make us travel by train!! They offered us a compensation but we haven’t heard from them yet. Not good experience at all."
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: "Staff superb. They even surprised us with an exit row and a gift for my partners birthday! Amazing. Samantha and Dennis also took time to come and personally wish him a happy birthday. A lovely touch. This airline runs like clockwork. They are just great. The sandwich and stoop waffle are nice too."
Cons: "There is a bus to the plane, so that takes a bit of extra time but they are very well organized."
Pros: "The staff and crew"
Pros: "Short layover connecting from US flight and luggage transferred ok to destination. Food option not great but at least they didn't charge for it unlike some other airlines. No entertainment but to be expected on such a short flight."
Pros: "The service, entertainment, food, the crew, the aircraft were excellent."
Cons: "They put us in a Transavia plane."
Pros: "Nice, turbulent-free flight. Food was good, service with a smile. Leg space was OK because Boeing 777s are usually better at this."
Cons: "Flight left over an hour late because of a sensor glitch. It is concerning when a technical glitch happens. But, the flight was smooth."
Pros: "Seat space was good for a short flight, inclusive of free snack and drink."
Cons: "Too much overoverhead luggage."
Pros: "I liked the leg room, I liked the customer service of the crew, smooth flight."
Cons: "Both ways up and down I struggled with over-head luggage space. We were allowed a cabin bag and a small hand-bag in the flight but as we were among the last half of the passengers to board the flight we couldn't find anywhere to keep our luggage and the crew had to take them away from us to store them somewhere at the back far away from our seats. As a result we had to wait until all the passengers got off the plane to get back our luggage and we were the last two passengers to get off. Unpleasant!"
Pros: "...The transfer at JFK was terrible"
Pros: "The service of the crew onboard"
Cons: "Entertainment not to many recent movies and the boarding process was a little bit confusing."
Pros: "Even for a 50 minute flight, drinks and sandwich was provided"
Cons: "Didn't even know there was a ticket of this type. It was a good price, but when I went to check in on the return flight I was charged ~ $95 for a luggage item. Not a bad trick. On the other hand, not very nice either. They also didn't allow to take the guitar on-board due to a short & full flight saying the above part was too small. When I got on however, there was clearly room there. It could have been human error, but still disappointing nonetheless. They said there would be no track so it should safe, which it was, but it was left out in the rain for a minute or two so the soft case was somewhat wet. I don't think any permanent damage occurred."
Pros: "We got there on time. Pretty average flight."
Cons: "No meal is served on an international flight. Not even a snack of pretzels etc. I found it a little offensive to not have a complimentary snack or meal for a nighttime international flight."
Cons: "Very expensive options for food. Poor entertainment choices. Make you pay for everything."
Pros: "Route great and faster than going through London."
Cons: "Boarding was a bit chaotic with everyone boarding at once and not by row."
Pros: "Great flight"
Cons: "My video screen didn't work"
Pros: "I like the UK to USA flight and the other way due to the stopover in Keflavik as it breaks up a long journey but the airport feels like a bus station, crowded, disorganised, not much to look at and nothing about iceland, such as an exhibit or something."
Cons: "See above, airport is like a bus station..."
Pros: "seats had decent leg room very pleasant cabin crew kept informed by the captain"
Cons: "single, crowded line for boarding. why not board the back of the plane first? no classical music selection--very good for blocking out noise. left and arrived 20 min late"
Pros: "Friendly crew, pilot, good equpment"
Cons: "Old movies and uninspired food"
Pros: "Bottle of water at boarding was a nice touch"
Cons: "Boarding at Reykjavik airport was a mess"
Pros: "Seating space was good in the plane."
Cons: "Reykjavik terminal is too small and was a mad house, with too many people and not enough seating. No clear instructions re: boarding. Everyone stood in line for a long time as no one knew what to do, and there was no waiting area or seating. No free food or alcoholic drinks on an international flight."
Cons: "1- Boarding was difficult. Embarking in Reykjavik was in gate D3 . We have to walk and climb stairs with our carry on. Once we got to the ramp level we noticed that gate C23 was at same level of the boarding ramp. Why to make elderly people climb stairs with loads? 2- 5 to 6 hours of flight and this cheap airline only offers a little cup of water, coffee, soda or juice (once from Dulles to Reykjavik, twice from Reykjavik to Dulles). Otherwise you have to pay above reasonable price for cold plates. Icelandeair is a Cheap airline not to the level of a nation like Iceland or not to the level 0of any other Latin American, Asian or some of the European airlines that offer a decent snack in flights of 5 or more hours."
Pros: "I did enjoy the on flight entertainment. The crew was pleasant and accommodating."
Cons: "Some sort of free snack would have been nice given the length of the flight. Granted, I've not flown an extensive amount, and free water and coffee is fine, but it would have been very nice to have some sort of snack half way through a 6+ hour flight"
Pros: "Flight was good and informative"
Cons: "Boarding was unorganized"
Pros: "The kid amenities are superb. Free meal for them, free headphones, activity book, colored pencils, and seat back kids movies. Happy kids = happy parents!"
Cons: "It took a ridiculous amount of time (like an hour) for the plane to board once people started filing on. Terminal was already crowded to the point of shoulder to shoulder standing-room-only. Shuffling at a snails pace with three exhausted kids and all of our carry on stuff was not cool."
Cons: "Was surprised to learn that the meal and headset are not included in the economy price. Competitors charge less, feed and entertain you! Not planning on travelling on this airline anymore."
Pros: "Plane was on time/even ahead of time, though we were late leaving due to waiting for connections - for which I was grateful, as we landed from Geneva 5 minutes before we were due to start boarding and had a certain distance to cover, plus long lines for passport control. Crew were courteous and drinks were offered twice. Like the water offered as you board as well."
Cons: "The boarding process seemed rather chaotic to me. Everyone lined up. you were supposed to scan your ticket, but it didn't work for a number of people, who then had to go to an attendant to get checked. In the end, we all got on, however! I might have watched a movie if I'd known to bring my own head set. Wasn't up for buying one, which was the alternative. Couldn't listen to music either. But I read a lot and dozed."
Cons: "Both flights were overbooked, there was only one person in line for checking bags, which we stood for over an hour in and barely had time to make it to our flight."
Pros: "Several movies, tv shows, music to choose from to keep me occupied for the 6 hour flight."
Pros: "The newer plane provided more space in economy"
Cons: "All food costs $"
Pros: "The flight itself-- good free entertainment, nice staff"
Cons: "The boarding process. The flight was late and the boarding area was crowded with other flights which isn't their fault. But they didn't make announcements about when it would board either and it boarded well ahead of the time posted on the electronic schedule."
Pros: "Crew were friendly; arrival was also straight forward."
Cons: "Ear buds were not offered. The movies were a bit dated. Boarding at KEF was very confusing."
Pros: "I like the price of your fares and the staff is very courteous"
Cons: "Don't like my bag being left behind in reyjkavik I have also tried to register online to gain frequent flyer points and the web site keeps rejecting my membership. I have now entered requested info and ticked all requested boxes six times and it still rejects. I have confirmed my password has required lowercase, uppercase and numeric characters. I'll keep trying but I have lost the last two round trip flights being documented.(that's eight segments"
Pros: "I appreciated the courteousness of the crew and the fact that they were willing to reseat us when there was a screaming child behind us"
Cons: "We were really rushed through Passport control in Reykjavik. A longer layover would have been much better."
Pros: "You were very kind to my grandmother on this trip and gave us excellent help with mobility issues"
Cons: "Not enough time to grab a bite to eat during layover!"
Pros: "Tv and movies"
Cons: "When I booked the flight I read that there would be a meal. There was only food for purchase. I ordered the snack of hummus for around 4 euro and when my card was charged at a price in Icelandic dollars that seemed too high.. I questioned the price and she was very rude and said it was in Icelandic to compare it to the menu and she continued to run my card. When she left I figured out she had given The wrong thing that was 10 euro! What a waste of money! I was also moved from the front of the plane to the back when boarding."
Cons: "One of three checked bags did not arrive on time."
Pros: "Short transit. Although the first leg of my flight was delayed by more than 1h 30 minutes, they arranged for quick transfers at Reykjavik airport and we arrived almost on time at final destination."
Cons: "No free food is served on board so make sure to bring your own food or be prepared to buy your meal on board (they don't accept cash, only bank/credit cards). This was a 5 and a half hour flight."
Cons: "In Iceland you had to board the plane from the tarmac"
Pros: "Direct flight, great schedule, and reasonable cost. Nice entertainment options."
Cons: "Boarding at Reykjavik was not ideal (more of the airport setup at the international gate, as we waited in small area in hall (limited seating) prior to going up stairs and waiting, and no announcement on boarding based on seat number - it was whoever happened to get upstairs first). Boeing 757 aircraft unfortunately doesn't allow putting in standard carry-on luggage straight back (you have to put it sideways, which is a bit annoying with limited luggage space available)."
Cons: "Only one drink service on the 6 hour flight. I went to the galley area 2/3 way through the flight and the curtain was tightly closed (with the crew behind the curtain). They didn't want to be disturbed. I know this was a discount flight, but I assume the crew are paid for the duration and it does not seem unreasonable to make a second beverage service."
Cons: "The Reykjavik airport is not set up to handle the amount of traffic it's getting. Boarding was completely disorganized with everyone just waiting for the gates to open. Then we were bused (in the rain) to our plane)."
Pros: "Fast boarding, the info learned about iceland and the stopover plan"
Cons: "Lack of space and food was not included on 6+ hr flights. Selection was limited"
Pros: "Boarding was quick and efficient. You have to pay for the food and no snacks was available for free i.e pretzels, peanuts...etc. Must bring your own headphones or you would have to pay for one to watch movies. Blankets and pillows were provided."
Pros: "The on flight crew was great!"
Cons: "My bag did not make it to the destination and when I went to file the claim, they insisted I double check before they would file the claim."
Cons: "My husbands screen didn't work and couldn't be fixed. For boarding, there was never an announcement and seemed unorganized"
Cons: "4 flights were leaving within 15 minutes, all in the same small terminal space. People were all crowded trying to figure out which "line" to be in when there were no lines, no instructions and lots of concerned passengers. My gate actually had a sign reading final boarding when no one had even been allowed through yet. This was freaking some people out. No announcements to clarify anything either. Very disappointing."
Pros: "The flight was on-time and arrived on-schedule. Iceland Air provided e-mail updates regarding the schedule of the flight prior to departure."
Cons: "Reykjavik airport (KEF) is much too crowded and there are not enough seats for passengers in the waiting area. The boarding onto the plane was disorderly and no announcements were made to provide directions. If you fly to Europe from USA, avoid Reykjavik. Iceland Air charges extra for snacks, headphones, and seat assignments. Even after buying "discount" tickets, the extra charges boost the cost to the same as all the other airlines. The plane only had two bathrooms on-board so there was a line during the entire six hour flight."
Pros: "Getting us from JFK to hotel at La Guardia via van, booking the hotel, and providing voucher for breakfast, booking another flight to get us back to IAD from JFK the next day"
Cons: "Due to delays in the flights had to get rebooked into JFK, then to IAD the next day. Ended up getting into JFK late, so missed that connection into IAD that night. not providing for transport from hotel at La Guardia back to JFK the next day."
Cons: "Lost my luggage. Contact number does not work. Complete frustration. Recommend carry-on only"
Pros: "Personal entertainment screen."
Cons: "Old movies on the entertainment choices. Limited music choices - mostly songs and artists that are unknown."
Pros: "Superb employees from the moment of contact on the phone."
Cons: "Not enough choices of music or movies. Poor quantity, quality, variety of food."
Cons: "Complete and utter chaos at the boarding process. No effort to board by rows or in any order. People pushing and shoving to get to the front of the line to board first. One single person checking boarding passes/passports at the gate. Horrible experience. Minimal leg room in coach class. Flight attendants did not seem to be happy about being on the flight and provided minimal service without a smile. The temperature on the fight was ridiculously hot - I've never been on a plane where it was so warm in the cabin."
Cons: "Expect to pay for everything, except water. Will never fly them again. Refused to cancel flight until hours before even though the airport was closed. Messed up my vacation."
Pros: "I Enjoyed the flight and loved the Northern Lights on the plane; however it would of been nice to get a meal or at least a snack."
Pros: "Crew was friendly, I've flown quite a bit and I've found Icelandair to have the friendliest crew around."
Cons: "Flew economy/cheap seats while I was upgraded on the flight to Iceland it didn't happen on the way stateside, I'm not complaining about that but the economy seats are extremely narrow and the cushions feel like half the padding in economy comfort class. I'm 6'2" weigh 215 lbs and by the time the flight ended I was extremely stiff and my legs were half asleep due to the confined space. If you fly fly economy comfort seats are wider, better padded and you board earlier."
Cons: "The screen worked but the headphones did not."
Cons: "They did not provide any free food or snacks on a 6.5 hour flight."
Pros: "The pilot gave all the information pleasantly. It was easy to find my seat and everyone was compliant with COVID-19 rules/restrictions."
Cons: "Boarding process could’ve been a bit quicker. There should be free accessible WiFi for everyone."
Pros: "Crew amazing!!!"
Cons: "Better maybe in giving drinks every once in a while like they use to."
Cons: "Flight attendants need to enforce all policies. It makes no sense to enforce a seat being leaned back a 1/2 inch but allow a Face Mask be worn as a Chin Guard through the entire flight instead wearing it properly!"
Pros: "Crew was great, pilot was amazing through the rough turbulence. Thank you!"
Cons: "The seats were tiny! I'm a big woman, but not a huge one and I struggled to get my belt on. Considering how nice their seats are, this is one of the smallest seats I've ever sat in!"
Pros: "The movie options they have"
Cons: "More comfortable seats & better food"
Pros: "The crew was great and provided a quiet environment for the red eye flight."
Cons: "The boarding process needs to be reevaluated. Perhaps the plane should be boarded from the rear to the front or from window to aisle seat. These suggestions would streamline the boarding process."
Cons: "Flight was delayed 3 hrs"
Pros: "Awesome Customer Service"
Cons: "More space."
Pros: "Easy flight. Free drinks and snacks. Nice crew."
Cons: "No individual entertainment. Do not help those that are AA members"
Cons: "There was room for my carry on, although they said it was full and cheked it"
Cons: "the fact they changed my schedule and had to come in earlier customer service was awful and my luggage came back dirty and the best response was that the belts are dirty and i can expect wear and tear. not only that i had to book myself an earlier trip to pay the standby fee so i can leave the same time my brother left tsa screening had us wait 20 min before we move in the line for the fact no worker was there but one guy and i was the last person to board the plane after almost missing closing gates my expierence was awful and disrespectful"
Cons: "Pushy crowd.."
Cons: "Over 45 mins for bags to get on the belt ? Ridiculous. Won’t fly with AA again"
Pros: "Teeny little plane but easy (early i think!) boarding process and nice flight attendant."
Cons: "We were in quite a long line to take off and when we arrived in bmore there was no one to manage the jet bridge and we sat for a little while. Seems like these issues should be easy to solve - you know when the plane is arriving for over an hour!"
Cons: "Same is last."
Pros: "Amazing and comfortable"
Cons: "We left a little late."
Pros: "Premium economy was excellent service, great food, and nice wide seats with legroom"
Cons: "Delayed for mechanical."
Cons: "Announcements were way too loud and they kept trying to sell us their new credit card. Bad enough being crammed into a tiny seat, but then you don't get any peace and quiet."
Cons: "Getting canned and put on a flight five hours later. Good job AA"
Pros: "I was under the weather and she was very very very helpful Mary and all AA flight attendants are great I will fly AA as often as I can because of Mary"
Pros: "-Efficient Boarding -Great flight attendants -Communicative Pilots (flight time, number in line on runway, etc)"
Cons: "Did not dislike anything on this trip."
Pros: "Got two seats to myself."
Cons: "I don't even know who our flight attendants were. Did we have them? Isn't that a requirement?? Guy in seat in front of me was super rude (yes, I know it's not the airline's fault.). Terrible turbulence (again, not AA's fault)."
Cons: "There was delay, as one of the steward was not there. There were 2 connecting flights for me, and was totally stressed about my connections."
Pros: "No problems."
Cons: "All was well."
Cons: "I didn't like the fact that I was told to preboard when I checked in before the flight and was told by another employee i was in group 6 and shouldnt be in line. Had to explain why I was preboarding and didn't like having to hold up the line. It was embarrassing."
Pros: "People were nice"
Pros: "I like the ease of boarding and the offer of complimentary check-in if the bags. I assume it was because the flight was fully booked. Overall I was pleased."
Cons: "The entertainment could be better during the flight. I also don’t remember being offered any snacks during the flights either."
Cons: "No carry on bags"
Pros: "Crew was outstanding"
Cons: "Hurried beverage service since arriving early. R"
Pros: "flight crew on my way to BWI were great!!!"
Cons: "american airlines does not care about the privacy of their passengers. even after several calls my information wasn't updated correctly and my flight confirmation was passed along to members who weren't even traveling. there was no in flight entertainment and in order to pick seats together i needed to pay extra (i thought i was flying with american not spirit) apparently the only way i can be helped is writing a letter to customer service which they will review within 10 business days. THANKS american for starting a war in my family and ruining my trip. unfortunate the crew is so awesome but the customer service is mortifying, rude, inconsiderate and completely mechanical. i dont ever intend on flying with them again unless necessary."
Cons: "Told me that if I checked my carry on bag at gate, I'd be able to pick bag up from from the gate at the other end. Instead it went to baggage claim with took more than 30 minutes."
Cons: "The departure was delated more than 30 minutes and the arrival disembarking was to slow."
Pros: "It was on time & staff were pleasant & effective"
Pros: "the flight attendants were very professional on this flight. the lead attendant was very personable when giving announcements and going through the safety procedures on the public address system. the other two attendants were also very professional in their services as well."
Cons: "flight 1920 was almost an hour late with boarding. I am extremely upset because I paid an extra $75.00 on day of to get home earlier but ended up getting home at the same time that I would have on my original flight because the flight was late and I missed my shuttle because 1920 was late boarding. I should be reimbursed SOMETHING for my inconvenience...especially after paying $75.00 extra for an earlier flight."
Pros: "The plane was new and nice looking"
Cons: "The flight was delayed. The crew was rude . Seats were not assigned until boarding NPILWL3B. Of course they give you the worst seats."
Pros: "THE SEATS WERE COMFORTABLE AND CREW AND VERY ATTENTIVE."
Pros: "the flight was great and comfortable"
Pros: "Short flight. The crew was nice. The food and entertainment should be Not applicable because it's a short flight - I was not expecting it."
Cons: "Boarding was late, very small carry on compartment - maybe because it's a smaller carrier. A lot of people had there carry on placed in a valet service so it took a while for them to get out because they were waiting for their carry ons."
Pros: "I liked how smooth flight went especially after all the bumpy rides I had been on"
Cons: "I didn't like that I wasn't able to sit with the person I purchased my ticket with"
