Wi-Fi should be less expensive

In Salt Lake City the directions from the gate to the outside bus area to take passengers to the outside gate was unclear. There was no one in view from the entry of the ramp to the end of it. I tripped over the metal bumper and fell on my knees, causing cuts and bruises. Although my luggage falling made a loud noise, there was no response from anyone. I had placed a request for a wheelchair beforehand, also with no response from Delta.

They made us check carry ons despite the entire aircraft overhead space being empty

Pros: "the crew took very good care of us"
Pros: "The crew was nice."
Cons: "N/A"
Pros: "Nice clean plane and every other seat being open is very reassuring."
Pros: "The crew was nice"
Pros: "Nothing, the flight was canceled without a refund. I highly recommend canceling all business with kiwi in the future."
Cons: "My flight could have occurred or I could have been refunded."
Pros: "Being on time with everything."
Cons: "Nothing"
Cons: "Really felt happy on time touch down nice journey with delta"
Pros: "The Delta staffed were friendly and greeted me with a smile."
Cons: "The temperature on the plane kept going in and out. It was warm most of the trip. The lady that was sitting in front of me talked on her phone until the plane went up in the sky. She would hide it when the flight attended passed by."
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "Paid for particular seat within 2-3 rows of back galley as unaccompanied minor for my son. For his comfort, he chose an aisle seat. Flight attendants onboard moved him to farthest back row in window seat and he was not able to get out to use the lavatory easily."
Pros: "The crew was amazing! The seat was comfortable."
Cons: "Used the self check in kiosk to begin! That was awesome! But after that I still had to stand in line to check in my bags. That part of the process took a bit longer than expected."
Pros: "Free movies"
Cons: "Bad food, cramped seating, slow food service"
Pros: "crew was amazing"
Cons: "there was water leaking from window during landing and the food was not hot and was just bland and uncooked"
Pros: "Nothing special"
Cons: "That was the most uncomfortable and cramped seat I had ever had on a plane flight. Even sitting on the pillow did not help."
Cons: "We paid for comfort plus but the seats were no different than main cabin. Comfort plus experience on other legs was much better."
Pros: "The crew was very friendly and helpful. With the plane full they managed to serve all with smiles on their faces and solved all problems, including cabin luggage problem."
Pros: "I like that I arrived at my destination safely."
Cons: "My allergies were bothering me due to the airlines allowing animals to travel as passengers, in this case a rabbit. I am very allergic to animals. My breathing was compromised."
Pros: "The guy announcing the boarding was a hoot! Great sense of humor."
Pros: "This had one of the best attendants I have encountered. She was extra friendly and made us feel good."
Cons: "The flight was 2 hours delayed.. this cause a lot of inconvienece.."
Pros: "Food was great Legroom was excellent Stewardess super nice Was able to sleep"
Cons: "No leg rest"
Pros: "Everything was on time and efficient. I also liked that the captain came on and updated us on arrival, turbulence, weather, etc."
Cons: "Flight was delayed out of St. Louis causing several of us to miss our connecting flight from Salt Lake City to Portland. Delta was of very little help in assisting us in making a connecting flight. They could have at least helped with travel arrangements and provided us with a little food, a pillow and a blanket as we waited in their terminal for the next flight on their airline which was a several hour wait. I understand these things happen but the passengers didn't cause the problem and Delta needs to take care of people better if they expect to earn repeat business."
Pros: "Service on tme"
Cons: "Small plan"
Pros: "Good movie selection"
Cons: "Just about everything else was mediocre"
Cons: "Ac not working at last 30 minutes of flight."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "We lost our whole vacation and had to pay for the plans fare twice because My last name was spelled wrong on our tickets and we were unable to use them because my passport didn’t match the name on the ticket. We had to rebook everything pay almost twice as much for the plane fare, our Lodi g cost more and our trip was delayed for two weeks. Vyama is blaming us for spelling our name wrong and claimes that it’s our fault this happened because everything is automated. There saying they don’t touch anything that we enter into the booking but somehow everything they claim we entered is now in all capital letters and the space between our first name and middle name is now gone and all run together. The coustomer service number gets you to someone in India. I have tried to get this addressed four times now at first they tried to place the responsibility on the airlines now us and they have hung up on me twice. Kayak has been worthless, they also just pass the responsibility on to someone else. We will never use them again ant I intend to make sure that this mess is put out in social media to hopefully keep others from having their travel plans ruined by their flawed system."
Cons: "They changed my flight to a different one departing 2 hours earlier and did not notify me! The original flight was still available & they would not let me take it despite my reservation paper work. CRAZY! I have a two hour drive to the airport this gave me the option to leave home at 2:30am or go the night before and pay for a hotel. Flight was managed by DELTA who also did not care! All involved blamed each other. Beware"
Pros: "In flight movies"
Cons: "The flight was 3 hours late taking off which made us miss our connection to chicago so we are stuck in Atlanta tonight with unplanned expenses we were not planning on!"
Pros: "Very friendly crew"
Cons: "Seatbelts very short given ample seat size"
Pros: "Everything from the check-in to the landing was great. We were well informed about what was going on with out luggage (we were on a regional flight) and the assortment of free snacks were superb! I guess I'll be a returning customer"
Cons: "I was expecting some form of entertainment (radio, overhead monitor, etc) on the CRJ700. But it really don't take away from the experience since T-Mobile partnered with the Wi-Fi service and I received a free hour of Wi-Fi!"
Pros: "Good selection of free, in-flight entertainment."
Cons: "Our flight was delayed on the runway, but that wasn't the airlines fault."
Cons: "My flight got to New York so late!!!! I missed my international flight."
Cons: "Not great communication from gate or staff on board. Failed to provide adequate water. No ice on super warm flight. Just bad experience overall."
Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "Plane was supposed to depart at 9:09pm. An announcement was made that in Atlanta which is Delta hub, there were no flight attendants for the flight so we had to wait for another crew to fly in. That's just unporfessiknal. To make matters worse, the gate agents didn't make announcements even if just to say we know this isn't good and we will update you asap even if just to tell you we are still waiting on word. Total silence and seeing the gate agents laugh and talk amongst each other was pretty bad."
Pros: "Spacious, clean, great host and hostesses. The flight arrived at our destination 30 minutes early."
Cons: "Nothing."
Pros: "Great service and amenities for a low cost"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Newer plane! Comfortable"
Cons: "Nothing just great"
Cons: "Not enough water on the flight and we landed in a parking lot and shuttled back to the airport."
Pros: "Crew was great. The video game quiz re knowledge of cities worldwide was entertaining and educational"
Cons: "turbulance"
Pros: "I like the new equipment on ATL - ABQ in first class, comfortable with good new video. Salmon dinner was quite good as well."
Pros: "I was cleared for standby! Flight attendant at the stl gate is always friendly and willing to help! I love her!"
Cons: "I waited almost 6 hours on the phone the night before the flight to get on standby! Almost didn't get the flight! Was charged $50 only to not get on my next flight because it was over booked! Flight attendant was very rude!"
Pros: "I liked nothing about my flight. It was like being waterboarded and held up for my money at the same time. How can you fit so many tiny seats on one plane. And then have 80 year old woman berate us if we as much as have to go to the bathroom. I understand that there is a profit margin,but treating people so poorly is a nice way to do it."
Cons: "The service, the tiny seats, the filthy plane, the gross food( why even bother?) the rude flight attendants and being told I was flying Air France when actually it was a horrible American carrier."
Pros: "I liked that I was able to get able to get an earlier flight!"
Cons: "I don't like that I had to pay $50 extra dollars for standby on both legs of my flight! I am a very loyal delta customer and these past times flying I feel like my favorite airline is turning into the bad airlines delay everytime, problems with the plane fare prices too high! I'm starting to think about taking my business elsewhere!"
Pros: "10 minutes early departure"
Cons: "There isn't enough seats in the gate area and sitting on the runway for 10 extra minutes we could have been early"
Cons: "They took an hour to get our baggage out in Hailey."

If my transfer flight wasn’t cancelled and my luggage wasn’t sent to Milan

Boarding staff, crew and food needs a lot of improvement!! It was awful Aircraft was old with minimal legspace

It was canceled , we took Uber home

Super comfortable. Slept the whole way.

Safety - wearing masks was mandatory. Good service.

Food quantity less. Crews do not help. Leg space less. Videos not in many languages

Meal was very poor

Still don’t have a flight and there is 300 people in line for customer service which is terrible slow

Pros: "The aircraft (operating the route due to the COVID-19 shortage in traffic between the two cities) was extremely nice and quite/comfortable. The service was better than expected, as I didn't expect food to be served on dishes like it was during the pandemic. But it was amazing!"
Cons: "The crew didn't have their masks on sometimes when coming back into the cabin as they simply forgot (the new norm is hard to get used to) so maybe the airline can stress the mandatory use of face masks at ALL times. Furthermore, for my comfort of the flight (with COVID) the FA's should use gloves"
Pros: "crew"
Cons: "not enough food"
Pros: "I didn’t get the chance to experience the seats because I didn’t get to be on the flight due to a huge mistake of a Lufthansa employee"
Cons: "Hire better competent people!"
Pros: "I had a connection flight which would not be for another 11 hours so I left the airport to get some sleep coming back the same carry-on I have with me now cannot come with me they want me to pay 40euro. In the meantime the flight is 40% empty and plenty of over head and yes is the same size of plane I came in the first place. However the agent was nice after I explain my situation she not charges me."
Cons: "Same airline coming from one place have different methods it’s a bit confusing."
Pros: "Nice to have room to spread out. Amazing that a staffer in Greece managed to quickly rebook us on a different flight due to delays and the fear of missing our connection! The best!"
Cons: "Food wasn’t great. The movie system or user interface was clunky - nice variety of films but hard to find them and choose them."
Pros: "The crew was friendly"
Cons: "Maybe not have my luggage lost and get rebooked to a later flight for no reason"
Pros: "Crew excellent...seats small and not too comfortable for business class."
Pros: "The crew was efficient. They seemed to care about the passengers' comfort. Also, even though the flight left late, they made up the time while in the air. They are the reason with I gave the excellent rating, despite some other misgivings."
Cons: "Lufthansa food service seems to have been deteriorated somewhat over the recent past. Especially the snack before landing seems laden with mayo (plain bread might have been better!)."
Cons: "Due to a delayed flight the night before, we were rescheduled and consequently missed another flight. Nothing was done about this since it was a separate trip. We had to pay another $1300 for new airline tickets to get back to the US."
Pros: "Seats had lots of space and entertainment systems had large, clear screens."
Cons: "Person sitting next to me was watching video on their phone without headphones. Also reeked of cigarettes. Had to move my seat."
Cons: "The bathrooms really needed more care in this trip, VERY different from my trip to Brazil."
Pros: "See my earlier remarks"
Pros: "Spacious seat, easy charging."
Cons: "Boarding"
Pros: "Crew was nice. I will go again with Lufthansa."
Cons: "Flight was 45 minutes late arriving, causing me to miss my connection to Lufthansa and forcing reroute of whole trip."
Pros: "Nice comfortable flight"
Cons: "Crew was not necessarily warm or curteous"
Cons: "They made me weigh my carry on, but virtually no one else, despite the fact that my bag was the same size as most and smaller that others! I honestly felt like one of the gate agents were picking on me."
Pros: "Lufthansa is great."
Pros: "Great crew and on time."
Cons: "Seating a bit cramped"
Pros: "It was run by UA, better seats then Austrian or Lufthansa in Economy. On time. Very efficient."
Cons: "Could not choose seats online,"
Pros: "Flight on time and excellent service."
Cons: "Food was not great."
Cons: ":)"
Pros: "Lufthansan Agent in Nigeria was very rude, has no professional skills, lost some of my medications as a result of her behavior towards me, yelling and commanding me to remove items from my bags and my hand bag. This was a second incident with her. Our flight was delayed for three hours as a result of faulty plane."
Pros: "Friendly flight attendants, good wine, good entertainment (which I actually don't watch), beautiful airplane, A 340, especially the downstairs restrooms."
Cons: "Very uncomfortable seats, minimal leg room, mediocre food."
Pros: "Food was okay."
Cons: "No entertaintment system. Some crew members did not speak English."
Pros: "The staff is on point classy folks the stewardess, are very nice and and prompt."
Cons: "The food is terrible extremely bland and no flavor. Needs to maybe be revamped"
Cons: "It was awful. The staff was more concerned with flirting with guests than everyone else. The seats were absolutely terrible. Getting off the flight the flight attendant had her back turned to everyone but made sure that the guests in first class were greeted as they discarded the air craft. As soon as she left everyone else from economy off the plane she didn’t even say have a good day, rather she had a nasty look on her face. This will be the last time I fly Lufthansa."
Pros: "3"
Pros: "I enjoyed my flight. Flight crew was amazing. Comfortable seats and lighting for an overnight flight. Food was good and stuffing."
Cons: "Headsets were collected half hour before landing (minor issue). Except for the recommendations for this flight, movie highlights were well hidden in the entertainment system."
Pros: "You can't beat the German's at efficiency. Awesome!"
Cons: "Houston isn't their hub and I have to put up with United."
Pros: "All great"
Cons: "Poor seat assignment young kids separate from Mother. Checking in person change the the seats without informing us."
Pros: "Crew"
Cons: "TV didn't work"
Pros: "Leg room is superior!"
Pros: "Extremely nice staff starting from check-in and till the end of flight, everything was perfectly on time"
Pros: "nothing"
Cons: "for 4 hours flight the crew decided to give breakfast at the first hour instead of the last. everybody was asleep and in fact no body had breakfast. the boarding was late the aircraft was missing and cause additional delay... TERRIBLE"
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."
Cons: "Seating was incredibly uncomfortable and cramped. Legs were in pain after the flight. Not enough beverage service for such a long dlight."
Pros: "Crew attitude - so much better than on the indifferent and even hostile US carriers"
Cons: "The Budapest Airport was not very organized for check-in."
Pros: "The flight itself was great... A bit of turbulence, but otherwise quite comfortable. Crew and captain were excellent."
Cons: "The plane arrived 2 hours late, causing me to miss a train from Marseille to Nîmes, and costing me money for an extra night's hotel that I hadn't planned (Marseille), plus wasting money for the night at the hotel that I HAD planned (Nîmes), plus the cost of having to purchase an additional train ticket for the following morning. The $7 voucher at the airport was nice, but honestly doesn't come close to making up for the cost and inconvenience."
Pros: "Courteous crew. Nice aircraft."

A l'enregistrement à punta cana il a fallut négocier pendant une heure et demander à parler à un responsable car la personne voulait nous faire payer nos deux bagages en soute 200 dollars alors qu'ils étaient compris dans notre réservation. Cela nous a fait perdre du temps avec notre petite fille de 3 ans. L'escale de 2h à New York est trop courte, les files d'attente sont très très longues pour le contrôle des passeports et aussi pour la douane. Il a fallut négocier avec beaucoup de personnes pour demander à passer devant, et aux États-Unis cette pratique n'est pas du tout appréciée, et tout ca avec ma fille dans les bras. Nous sommes arrivés 30 min avant le décollage àla porte d'embarquement, juste au moment de d'embarquer, mais le vol a finalement été retardé d'une heure. Et enfin nous avions demandé à été placés ensemble côté hublot, à l'enregistrement on nous a dit oui évidemment mais au premier vol on était même pas à côté ( il a fallut négocier encore une fois) et au deuxième nous étions dans la rangée du milieu. Bref ce voyage retour à été très stressant et épuisant !

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Transavia does not serve anything complementary, not even water. A flight between two countries that is five hours long must be better than this. I was not aware of Transavia doing that before I booked. I will never fly with them again"

Pros: "Crew good and seat OK but not exceptional for business class"
Cons: "Food was average - main course could have been better. Range of movies ok but not great"

Pros: "Seat was uncomfortable. There was nothing to like. In past I have traveled by KLM but this time it was worst."
Cons: "No proper food service. Even to the passenger of Amsterdam no dinner was served. No inflight service. It looks like domestic flight. I will think twice to travel by KLM. The check-in staff at counter was absolutely arrogant. Staff ar boarding gate was nice."
Pros: "The seat was a little uncomfortable but the crew were amazing."
Pros: "Good for both."
Cons: "Bigger seats."
Cons: "Flight cancelled"
Pros: "On time and friendly crew"
Cons: "Boarding needs improvement"
Pros: "Friendly staff, great service on board. Way better value and service compared to the tacky Irish competition flying the route. Delta all the way"
Pros: "Crew was in a festive mood, the meal was unexpectedly delicious"
Cons: "Seats ok, but could be more comfy"
Pros: "Last year I flew Lufthansa which was my worst experience flying ever. I thought the new standard was so low I would never fly to Europe again. I had heard KLM was good but I felt this was as good as could be expected actually much better. The food was even good."
Cons: "I would have to dream something up."
Pros: "Friendly crew! More legroom, good entertainment and food was great! Smooth landings pretty much on time."
Cons: "Boarding could be better"
Cons: "Our lougage did not arrive"
Pros: "Shirt flight but well catered, boarding was efficient and quick."
Cons: "Not lots of legroom but adequate for an hour long hop. It was cold on board and also had to board via steps from outside"
Pros: "Good selection of movies."
Cons: "Very small seats with no leg room and very little room on either side. The food was bad - even when compared to other airplane food. Plane is kept too warm."

Cons: "The movie options, as well as music and TV options were limited. There were no electrical outlets."
Pros: "The flight to Gdansk took off and arrived on-time and the staff were professional."
Cons: "The flight to Amsterdam from Gdansk was late and I had to RUN to the connecting gate. 50 minutes is NOT ENOUGH time to go through passport control."
Pros: "Great food"
Cons: "I paid a top price for my ticket and expect the advertised amenities to work. Upgrade or replacement for entertainment system."
Cons: "Flight departed 35 minutes late"
Pros: "Need better quality tvs for such a long flight and better movies There were only 4 Bollywood movies and not the latest ones either"
Pros: "The leg room, was surprisingly roomy"
Cons: "The food and that there was no entertainment."
Cons: "Our total flight time was about 17 hours - MAD- AMS-LAX. My husband and I both have an internationally approved carry on luggages with us. When we checked in - they asked us to both check in our carry on luggage. The reason why is because they said they don’t think they have enough space for our carry ons. I told the crew member checking us in that other people that was checking in with the same hand carry size luggage with us had no problems taking it with them. For being about to be on a 17 HOUR FLIGHT we should be ALLOWED to have our carry ons with us! We take carry ons for that reason! I had to argue and prove my case to the crew member to atleast keep 1 carry on with us. I thought that was an UNACCEPTABLE reason for us to check in a carry on luggage when we had a 17 hour travel time ahead of us. Not a happy costumer here."
Pros: "The staff the facilities the food all ******. Will definetly look forward to choose both delta and KLM"
Cons: "Boarding was delayed a little due to weather as was takeoff. Cant blame them for weather but the connection was very tight."
Pros: "Boarding was a breeze and the staff were lovely. Online check was very simple and easy to navigate."
Cons: "The amount of extras you have to click no to while checking in online."
Cons: "una valija se perdió. Eso desató el descontrol que tiene KLM para seguir el equipaje. No hay como hacer tracking. No hay un teléfono a donde hablar, la web está desactualizada y con información equivocada. Direccionan a usar canales de twitter y facebook que no responden. Primer experiencia en KLM y no pienso nunca más usar esta aerolínea. Llevar el equipaje o resolver un problema sobre valijas es de lo más básico de una aerolínea y no lo hacen."
Pros: "Equally friendly crew and experience. It was complimented by the time we got to spend in the fantastic KLM lounge while we waited for the flight."
Cons: "Nothing!"
Pros: "The staff at the front desk for the check-in were extremely helpful. I had a complicated issue with my luggage and they helped me to sort it out in the best possible way. Amazing service! Furthermore, the entertainment on board is great! Nice movies, nice food, friendly flight attendants, etc. They even offered me a second sandwich =)! I truly loved my experience with KLM."
Pros: "Very little if any."
Cons: "Aircraft was not very clean,the staff seamed quite harsh at times when speaking to customers. The food was really quite poor but it was a short flight to be honest. Overall not as pleasant as the China Southern flights. I would not like to choose them again unless i had to."
Cons: "KLM can't seem to figure out the order of boarding the plane. Should be business - priority - everyone else. Instead they do priority first, and that's usually two-thirds of the passengers. Also, really tired of the fake business class on these flights..."
Cons: "Our flight was canceled from Amsterdam to Bordeaux and did not receive any direction and had to find alternate flights for ourselves with the personal expense of using our own cell phones. Then our luggage lost for 3 days. Not happy!"
Pros: "Jet airways flight till mumbai"
Cons: "Poor legspace in Klm flight till Amsterdam"
Pros: "Crew was friendly, and the food was better than the usual KLM fare."
Cons: "The "new" seats were hard and uncomfortable. Avoid any kinds of seats near the bathroom in a configuration with 3 abreast next to the windows. The "aisle" seat is essentially a "waiting area" for the rest room."
Pros: "staff hospitality, cleanness of the cabin and toilet and punctuality of the flight"
Cons: "lack of meal options"
Pros: "Night flight so no entertainment allowed sleeping"
Cons: "Kosher food could be improved"

Pros: "Friendliest economy class service I've ever encountered."
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"
Pros: "If you would like to learn more you can call me 628.600.8825 Very dissapointed"
Pros: "It was very comfortable"
Cons: "The crew was great"

Such a wonderful comfortable flight!

Seats were like bus seats; good food; overall okay.

Coming through chicago is a nightmare. Customs are rude, everyone shouting, disorganized lines and horrible signage. Ticketing was horrible, rude agents, rude TSA, etc, etc.

Cons: "my first flight overseas. friendly staff. movies ..headphones..pillow and blankets included. 2 beverages included with meal. only downside was paying for checked bag. looks like that is included on the return flight so that won't be and issue on the way home. no issues with carryons."
Cons: "Seat was terribl, space tiny, no legroom no air movement, hot the entire trip,"
Pros: "The crew was very nice , and very comfortable seats ."
Cons: "Everything was great"
Cons: "The back of the plane was significantly warmer than the rest of the plane. Very little leg room."
Pros: "Seating room, food, and service"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Boarding was easy, flight was smooth and on time."
Cons: "Seats were snug, granted we had the less expensive tickets."
Cons: "More room. Not losing our luggage at the end."
Pros: "On time travel. Check In Staff were kind and engaging."
Cons: "On flight staff were minimally attentive. Food was mediocre."
Pros: "The quality of the seat, cleanliness of the aircraft (with the exception of the restrooms). Ground and lounge crew excellent and knowledgeable. Boarding was swift but confusing."
Cons: "In cabin crew was substandard. Very slow in the food service, often times rude and lound when addressing passengers, and failed to clean the restrooms in flight, which left them in dire state and smelled. An unusually unpleasant set of attendants, and sadly not one of them made up for the lack of professionalism the others showed. No priority boarding, they proceeded with boarding the first half of passengers all at once so rather confusing."
Pros: "service was great flight was on time luggage came on time"
Pros: "The in-flight entertainment options were good."
Cons: "My seat was broken and when I alerted the attendant, in a rude tone, she replied “what do you want me to do?” Not exactly the friendliest experience. It was only compounded by the fact that when we were landing, another attendant insisted I put seat completely upright, and when I told her it had been broken the entire trip, she began forcefully shoving my seat. Not awesome."
Cons: "Food was pretty atrocious. Before having this flight I tried many times to book a special meal but their website is nearly impossible to use. So on the flight I was given two options of fish or mexican beef. Mexican beef meant slow cooked beef in a salty brown sauce with 2 kidney beans. Yes 2 kidney beans. With potatoes carrots and broccoli. Entertainment was pretty lacking. Not a lot of options. Also it was freezing the entire flight."
Cons: "The flight good bit it’s always crappy when you loose your luggage"
Pros: "People were very kind. The food was terrific!"
Cons: "The entertainment system was slow."
Pros: "Crew was friendly and helpful."
Cons: "Plane was a bit old, inflight entertainment limited, temperature on aircraft fluctuated a bit. We were also an hour delayed in take off with no communication."
Pros: "All went well !! On time friendly staff ."
Pros: "I liked the high-tech adjustment on the seats but i am 6ft2, 200 lbs (in good shape) and I have Parkinson's disease. The seat was just not roomy enough and I had to get up at least once an hour."
Cons: "The crew was very understanding and kind. The aft head was very limited in space too. A little more room would have been most welcome."
Pros: "The food and service were great!"
Cons: "flight was canceled and I have not heard back from SAS"
Pros: "Everything. Nothing ever goes wrong when I fly SAS which is why I seldom don't. And if something does go wrong their manners and spirits are high and they make sure everyone is still happy and comfortable. Best service in the airline industry."
Cons: "I like everything."
Pros: "food was delicious and I liked that they give everyone a full bottle of water at the start of the flight; plane was new and updated"
Cons: "Boarding was awkward and just a giant mass of people funneling in; tv show options only had 1-3 episodes and not entire seasons"
Pros: "Good boarding, crew nice and professional, lots of entertainment choices, plenty of bathrooms. Overall a very good flight."
Cons: "No opportunity to rest on flight back home and wine a bit expensive for a European flight."
Pros: "The flight attendants were very nice and on the cross continent part of our flight we had dinner and breakfast served. Lots of leg room."
Pros: "Efficient and friendly staff. Coach seats did recline on that Airbus model, which was nice."
Cons: "Had to pay for wifi in coach for internet access. It was dropping routinely, dial-up slow, and very frustrating. The food was on par with other airlines, minus the vegetable turnover. That was a bit odd. What was shocking to me, is that no alcohol of any kind was complimentary in coach."
Pros: "I had read several horrible reviews after I booked my flight but I was pleasantly surprised. The check in and boarding were smooth and had no issues. The seats, though not overly large, we're comfortable and not tight. The food was good and service was fast and efficient. Overall a good experience."
Pros: "I loved that there were a lot of different movies, TV shows, games, music, and more to choose from- all for free! Then there was a dinner- not bad at all-, a snack later on, and breakfast too, all included. Headphones if you needed them ( lifesaver there as I had temporary misplaced mine), a blanket, and a pillow. The crew was really polite, and there was never more than one person in line for the bathroom."
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "They gave us blankets and pillows. Each seat had its own entertainment system but it only worked with the earbuds given out by the crew and the controls were cumbersome to use."
Cons: "The plane was hot and stuffy the entire trip. There are no longer individual controls for air. It was so uncomfortable and we were hot a sweaty the whole flight. The crew said that there was nothing they could do about it."
Pros: "We were eventually rebooked in the class we paid for."
Cons: "Our flight was cancelled with no notice. We were rebooked in economy class when we paid over $5,000 for business class tickets, and told we would "probably" receive a refund for the difference. after much prodding, asking and begging, we were finally rebooked in a flight on Lufthansa the same night. That airline was upset, though, because SAS did not call them or notify them that we had been switched to their airline."
Cons: "Cheap airline, entertainment system failure, paying for soft drinks?????? Food was an absolute disaster on one flight and no food service at all on the second flight. Abysmal service on both legs. Call for further details."
Cons: "Flight cancelled without warning less than two hours before departure."
Pros: "The movies."
Cons: "My selected seat was broken and I was moved to a seat directly on the side of the toilet. Not nice!"
Cons: "Water and beer paying"
Pros: "Friendly and helpful staff."
Cons: "Narrow seats."
Pros: "Everything was great"
Cons: "Nothing to mention"
Pros: "Boarding was quick, the staff was friendly, the plane was clean."
Cons: "I was really cramped in my seat and was unimpressed with the food."
Pros: "Comfortable flight, friendly crew. Would fly again!"
Cons: "Food could have been better"
Pros: "Couldn't ask for a better flight. Was nice and smooth with great service. Thanks for bringing me home safe."
Pros: "Everything worked well."
Cons: "Movie selection could be lager."
Cons: "Not enough room to work on laptop."
Pros: "Easy flight, nice crew members, no issues had here"
Cons: "My luggage didn't show up for five days of a 7 day trip from a direct flight! SAS was completely useless by phone, email, and Facebook.... They set up a phone line that nobody monitors and had my luggage in-country for days before even sending someone to deliver it"
Pros: "Wide seats with excellent leg room in exit row- a bottle of water waiting at or seats-- we love the two seat configuration --attendants ready to serve any need with a smile."
Cons: "Bought our tickets from Kayak and as a result had a very difficult time upgrading seats."
Pros: "The flight was on time and the crew was friendly"
Cons: "My luggage did not follow me to Geneva as it was supposed to do. I hope it will come today in Annecy where I am staying."
Pros: "Flights were on time. Crew was great."
Pros: "Wonderful service! Flight attendants kind and thoughtful. Once in terminal 5 (from terminal 1) a Sas gate agent escorted us to flight since our previous United flight was so late"
Cons: "Miserable cramped seating ."
Pros: "The Plus Seating was really good"
Pros: "Lucky is the passenger to get onboard a new SAS plane! Cleanliness aside. The built in phone chargers to the tele is genius. Nice to land fully charged!"
Cons: "I didn't like that they interrupted programming to announce they were walking on board shopping through the cabins. They did this twice! Really unnecessary!"
Pros: "The crew was friendly, the planes clean, flights on time. The blankets were a very nice touch."
Cons: "On my first flight, I paid for use of wifi, but it kept kicking me off the connection. Repeatedly, the entire time. On the second flight, there was no option for wifi at all. It would have been nice to pay for wifi once for use all the way to my destination."
Pros: "Flight, once we got on one, was fine."
Cons: "The delay of the first leg from Chicago resulted in missing the Stockholm leg by minutes. They didn’t hold the plane, but told us if we ran, we might make it. The gate was closed when we got there. Also, apparently chicken sandwiches in Iceland contain shrimp, which I’m allergic to."
Cons: "Didn’t realize I was going to be charged $65.00 per suitcase. Checked three and that added$195.00 to my overall cost. The only thing we got on board was water everything else was a charge."
Pros: "Great company!"
Cons: "It was very warm on the plane for the 6+ hours of flying, making it difficult to sleep or be comfortable."
Cons: "2 list bags"
Cons: "late departure, no assistance with short connection, crew on the plane and at the airport couldn't give us any information about where to go for our connecting flight, our luggage wasn't transferred and it took them more than 48 hours to get it to us."
Pros: "Crew was very nice. Flight was comfortable."
Cons: "You could have told me ahead of time that it costs $95 to bring a suitcase on board"
Pros: "I like the short trip from Chicago to Oslo, it is the shortest trips out of all the airlines. Staff is sweet and helpful, seats comfortable, and prices are reasonable."
Cons: "I usually travel with airlines that serve dinner and a breakfast. Iceland air is the only one I have experienced not doing that. Entertainment is a little more sparse than other airlines, often I get the same movies and tv series episodes on my way back from my trip as I had going there."
Pros: "It was Delta Airlines"
Cons: "The first leg Chicago to Iceland was uncomfortable due to the seats for some reason. From Iceland to London seats were much more comfortable. Iceland employees are the most friendly and helpful airline people I have ever dealt with."
Cons: "Did not get the extra legroom we paid for, plane was awful hot and stuffy. Crew allowed 3 kids aged about 4 to 12 to literally run up and down the aisle, running into people and screaming."
Pros: "Crew was not welcoming. Food was not good. Seats were horrible."
Cons: "All the above"
Pros: "Everything was on time , perfect"
Cons: "Don’t know"
Pros: "On time departure and arrival Friendly staff Easy flight and good time of arrival"
Cons: "food for purchase"
Pros: "Plane was clean and the crew gave excellent service. I loved breathing in the cold air when I got off the plane on the tarmac. I didn’t even mind the quick bus ride up to the terminal. The Reykjavík airport is very calm, quiet, and serene. After a Chicago, it was quite pleasant!"
Cons: "This is my first time flying Icelandair. Paying for food on a transatlantic flight really surprised me! I wish I would’ve known this ahead of time as I thought I was getting dinner on my flight. Next time I’ll pack a sandwich."
Pros: "Everything was on time and no hassle with boarding passes luggage and boarding. I liked that there were 2 exits in Iceland. All staff that we encountered were awesome. Overall a good flight. Loved the entertainment options. Liked getting the water bottle when we boarded and the blanket and pillow."
Cons: "I was expecting a bigger plane and seats for overseas travel. I was surprised when the plane was same size and capacity that I fly within the continental US. I could not fit my usual carry on bag under the seat in front of me and I can always fit that under on other flights I’ve been on. I felt the seats were really tight which made it difficult to sleep. Sleeping on the plane is necessary when traveling internationally."
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Very poor communication did not cooperate connecting us to a different airline flight. Being put on hold for two hours to talk to customer service with no solution!"
Pros: "None"
Cons: "Flight delayed"
Pros: "Flight was fine. We fly economy and we know what to expect; all was fine."
Cons: "The late departure was not an issue for us; however the flight information board was poorly updated. Since we were connecting to a second Iceland Air flight, a nonissue. However those connecting to another airline with limited time would have been rightfully frustrated."
Cons: "That it said on my itinerary that I had economy class but then they still charged me $90 to check a bag. It didn’t say anywhere that my ticket was economy light. I would have bought my bag beforehand to save money but it was not clear at all."
Cons: "No meal service"
Cons: "There was no food offered although I had a 6 hour flight from O'Hare to Reyjkavik , and then another from Reyjkavik to Berlin. Both flights were with icelandair"
Pros: "We sat on the tarmac in Reykjavik for several hours before leaving to London. It was cramped and uncomfortable. They should not have boarded that flight if it wasn't going to takeoff."
Cons: "It was not clear that the fare did not include checking a bag. For an international flight, it's hard not to check a bag. I ended up paying a lot more for the flights than I expected."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "The flights are never on time. We had to run thru the Iceland terminal both going and coming back as none of their flights are on time and we had a 20 min connection..plus my mom is 91 years old and it was extremely hard to make our connecting flight both ways. I will never take this airline again!"
Pros: "Good entertainment options."
Cons: "The seats were so uncomfortable."
Cons: "The experience was fine other than I was surprised for an international flight I had to buy food."
Pros: "Modern plane, comfortable seats had built-in headrests so bringing a travel pillow wasn't needed. I liked that they handed out bottles of water as you board. Free coffee, water, and juice, but otherwise you had to pay for snacks or anything else you might want."
Pros: "The lights were off from start to finish so we could sleep the entire way. No unnecessary announcements to annoy. Loved there was a pillow and blanket on all the seats and water as you boarded. I didn’t not eat or drink, so no comments there."
Cons: "Entertainment lacked options."
Pros: "There was more room than expected and the in-flight entertainment was great."
Cons: "We sat on the tarmac for over an hour waiting to take off while they cleared error messages in the cockpit."
Pros: "Service seamless,"
Cons: "Seats not the most comfortable in the world, could not figure out entertainment, wifi did not work"
Pros: "Flight rebooked fort they next day"
Cons: "Am waiting at hotel (only gave voucher for a single room for two people - my nephew and I). Room won't be ready until 14:00. We are exhausted from an overnight flight and have no where to go so we're stuck at the hotel. For several hours. I am tired and cranky."
Pros: "I liked the water bottle and blanket and courteous staff"
Cons: "It would have been nice to get a complimentary snack or meal since the flight is so long"
Pros: "I saw a lot of bad reviews and got nervous, but I had no trouble at all. I only wish they served food..."
Cons: "no communication from crew and cockpit. we were sitting an hour on the runway without getting info what is going on. almost missed my connection because if the delay, where btw the crew won't give you any information either about connecting flights (e.g. gate#)"
Pros: "It's a good airline with a good entertainment system."
Cons: "Are you serious? I fly to Europe, and the bag doesn't even make it out of Iceland? In fact, dozens of people didn't get their bags? They never put them on the plane? How does this happen? I am in London meeting with clients... and all I have is a sweatsuit. I don't have time to go buy new clothes, so I will look like an idiot in front of my boss and our clients. Thanks a lot Icelandair."
Pros: "We safely arrived."
Cons: "The plane was only a 757, so smaller and more cramped. No food was served despite it being a 6+ hour flight. The screen in front of my seat did not work, but would not shut off. The seat next to me the headphones jack did not work. We were also late taking off and landing, making our connection very tight"
Pros: "Quick boarding to minimize a delay. Good communication about the delay. Being handled a bottle of water upon boarding."
Cons: "Late departure, crew was scarce, paying for food and drink on an international flight."
Pros: "Enjoyed travel videos about Iceland that you could watch before arriving."
Pros: "The crew and check in were easy and fast in CHI. The flight was just fine - be ready for Icelandic first then English - fun experience for sure! The detailed information they gave about what to do about our next flight in Reykjavik was helpful and proactive. One stewardess on the flight even gave my wife a whole extra large bottle of water and said, "Anything for the new mother!" Good customer service and sensitivity."
Pros: "Nice flight crew and good customer service."
Cons: "Food wasn't included nor were any snacks, 2$8,$ I thought was a bit cheap for an international flight. Also, it wasn't the best selection for special diet people (I'm vegetarian and gluten free)."
Pros: "I sat in seat 7F..had plenty of leg room and staff was friendly and helpful"
Cons: "Missed connection by a minute and got delayed ten hours."
Pros: "Easy boarding. Delayed but arrived on time."
Cons: "No meal"
Cons: "Late"
Pros: "The airline hospitality was very good. If our flight was on time the 40 minute connection would have been fine. Iceland airport is very small and easy to get throu."
Cons: "Our first plane didn't show up or have fuel, so we departed an hour and a half later. We missed the connecting flight in Iceland, but they already had us booked on another flight that day."
Pros: "This was probably the worst flight I have ever been on (and I have flown internationally a lot - and travel weekly for work purposes Icelandair - hands you a bottle of water and you never see the flight attendant again - this for a 6 hour flight!!!!!! the plane was extremely hot there was no communication to tell people what was going on, that we were late, agents to help - etc etc - nothing needless to say - I will never fly Icelandair again others were worse then us - some had no flight to be redirected too - and side note - the customer service counter at Birmingham - had NO ONE there for over an hour - they had to finally call someone to come down and help the many people there"
Cons: "Icelandair was delayed out of Chicago - but the agent stated our flight would be fine - we would only be arriving 15 min late - and even so - they would "hold" the flight" . We arrived and ran to the gate- people were still boarding - gate was open and the agent said to us and others - oh you are the Chicago people - you have to go to customer service. We find out we have been "bumped" off the flight and placed on a new flight 2 hours later with a non direct flight - we have to go through Birmingham now. We are delayed again out of Iceland and get into Birmingham 1 hour late. We were never told that we had to reclaim our luggage. When we preceded to reclaim our luggage - there was NO luggage. and spent over an hours looking for it Icelandair never put our bags on the plane - and stated they would go on flights sometime the next day - we still have no word"
Pros: "Crew was relaxed and kind."
Cons: "Delayed boarding. We left an hour late which resulted in a sprint through Reykjavik and missing luggage when i arrived at my final destination."
Pros: "I liked the seats, blankets, and pillows."
Cons: "The service was not good. No food was offered, everything was for purchase. Plus, only one beverage round on a 9 hour flight! We had to ask for water and it was given, but almost like well, OK, but don't bother me. Plus, our flight was delayed in Chicago, so we got to Iceland late. We made it to our connecting flight to Hamburg, but our luggage did not."
