Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Very nice airplane and pleasant crew"
Pros: "Flight and the crew!"
Cons: "Staff at the airport pushing you to upgrade to first class but not making it clear only the first trip from Athens to Amsterdam which the first class uses same uncomfortable seats as the economy to pay extra 130 euros ridiculous airfrance stuff! I should have flown all the way to NYC first class!!!"
Pros: "KLM STAFF WERE VERY PROFESSIONAL"
Cons: "SOME CREW MEMBERS WERE ABIT RUDE. THEY NEED TO WORK ON THEIR ATTITUDE"

Pros: "The flight AMS to MEX was smooth, very helpful personnel on board, we enjoyed a bit more space and the seat seemed a bit more comfortable."
Cons: "Besides the seat relative comfort, it did not recline much at all, i wondered what the extra money (at least $5 or $600) got us. The food, wine/ beer service was same as regular economy, the boarding took place at same time as economy, no drink before take-off if only sparkling water. And the plane was old generation 747 and the entertainment was same vintage: screen was not very bright and the selection of films was poor. No plug to charge electronics. We were disappointed with KLM when comparing with other airline companies offerings when you book in Premium Economy."
Pros: "Very pleasant, professional crew"
Cons: "Very slow check in. Mainly because other passengers obviously don't read instructions re: weight/contents of cabin bags etc. Would be helpful if there was additional staff to deal with them away from check in desk. This would mean that others did not have to queue for 25 minutes because the check in girls also had to deal with them"
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."
Cons: "Nothing special"
Cons: "Nothing special"

Pros: "Staff very pleasant"
Cons: "Evening snack was not the greatest breakfast was pretty food"
Pros: "The seats seemed to have more space on this plane which was nice."
Cons: "It felt strange that the crew members completely skipped over me when serving lunch and drinks. At least something as basic as water should be given to all passengers."

Pros: "I got some rest"
Cons: "unable to charge my phone or watch movies"
Pros: "Crew was very nice and helpful, entertainment system worked well and had good choices"
Cons: "Seats were not very comfortable, it was uncomfortably hot and there was not air conditioner vent above like most other airlines"
Cons: "The 767 is configured oddly and th business class seats are so narrow it feel like you are sleeping in a coffin"
Pros: "The crew came to get me from the arrival gate to get to the departure gate since our plane was delayed. It helped to know that the airline was checking to make sure we made the flight."
Cons: "I did not get my luggage in Nairobi. The delayed flight that was the most likely reason it did not get to the connecting flight to Nairobi."
Pros: "787 is a great airplane. The 3-3-3 seat configuration leaves enough seat width to be just comfortable in coach."

Pros: "Flight was delayed for three hours and was a very stressful flight"

Cons: "Not much to comment on here."
Pros: "Crew was very helpful.food"
Cons: "Food was not upto the mark."
Pros: "Everything. Staff incredible."
Pros: "Of the multiple international airlines I recently flew with, I would have to say KLM was by far the best. Relaxing atmosphere, comfortable seating, great in-flight entertainment, although I have the go-go in-flight data/entertainment plan with t-mobile (highly recommended), the flight included a decent selection of movies, television programs, etc. The food far exceeded typical "airline quality," even for an international flight - and included a fabulous little snack box with locally sourced gourmet and specialty items such as chocolate from Belgium, fine cheeses from France, and crackers from England. Drinks = gratis, and crew was exceptionally attentive and went out of their way to make flight as pleasant as possible."
Pros: "The flight was delayed due to fog, but the staff was amazingly helpful to make sure everyone got to their destination."
Pros: "That we didn't crash"
Cons: "Being delayed and missing my connecting flight. No entertainment onboard (for hours and hours)."
Cons: "Departure 40 mins late. I took this flight 2 weeks ago and it was also delayed."
Cons: "There weren't too many options. The movie selection was very limited and the tv show were over 20 years old in some cases"
Pros: "Overall, my trip to Cardiff via Amsterdam was smooth and delightful. I've flown a few short trips this summer and I was pleasantly surprised to find KLM still offered complimentary snacks. What a refreshing change!"
Cons: "There was no entertainment which is why I assigned that category only one star. The boarding process in Amsterdam could have been a bit smoother. Announcements were no clear."
Pros: "KLM fed a sandwich even though the flight was only 2 hours. The crew was pleasant. Getting through the Amsterdam airport to catch a connecting flight with only an hour to do so was no big deal. Airport staff was pleasant and helpful."
Pros: "Flight crew on flight from Amsterdam to Cape Town were probably the most friendly and enthusiastic I've experienced and no, they were not all young. The plane was spotless throughout the flight. They were always coming around with water and juice and they genuinely seemed to care about all the passengers. The Flight back crew were just the opposite. More like the old lazy farts you get on the American carriers or BA or QF long haul. Whoo have been there for the long haul and should have stopped ages ago."
Cons: "The Entertainment images on the screens promoted Beauty and the Beast, Batman Lego movie but neither were on the system! Food quality was rubbish"
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."
Cons: "Luggage (being handled by Air France in Basel) was first marked as delayed... nothing of the flight was in the end put on the belt and instead dropped off at Lost and Found. Ridiculous service since this was in no way announced to the people waiting for their suitcase."
Pros: "Special treat for King's Day Friendly crew"
Cons: "15 min late boarding 30 min delay leaving the gate Very little leg room"
Cons: "I slept didn't have snack offered and no entertainment"
Pros: "Quick and efficient flight. Crew very organized. Great language skills"
Pros: "Flight was on time, crew professional, food and drinks good and kept coming. I learnt Dutch on the in-flight entertainment system. I was in a good mood talking to another passenger about his new luggage system. This mood was kept and not taken away on the flight."
Cons: "Would be nice if there was wifi on board"
Cons: "Terrible moslem food, too much lentil with tasteless chicken"
Pros: "So few people aboard. Allowed for great service by flight crew."
Cons: "Catering in COVID era leaves a lot to be desired."
Pros: "I love how the crew was so nice"
Cons: "I personally don’t like flying so I was nervous when there was sudden turns"
Cons: "The Boarding was not fair. The most horrible experience in my life and the Customer Service made me felt like a delinquent."
Pros: "Crew very professional and provided excellent service."
Cons: "Boarding process chaotic."
Cons: "I choosed this very very expensive flight because it was so import to be home in CPH at 9.00 for an important meeting. My flight from Chicago was delayed and nothing was done by the pilots to arrive on time. Despite the delay, I managed to arrive on time to my Connecting flight to CPH - only to realize that I was moved to a later flight. Now I have spent 2.300 USD on a poor flight that do NOT bring me to my destination on time. I am a frequent flyer, and will do everything I can Avoiding United going forward. Never United again"
Cons: "We were delayed not once, not twice, but 3 times. Changed our gate 3 times. They changed planes twice. Then, only one agent at the gate to do everything!! I will not fly United again unless I have to!!"
Cons: "Flight was very late departing"
Pros: "Attendants were wonderful!"
Cons: "Baggage claim time - but that's a Philly issue."
Pros: "Crew was great. Planes were on time."
Cons: "Takeoff and first half of ORD-MCO leg was a little rough. Not the airlines fault though."
Pros: "Flight delayed overnight, no compensation from United as no crew available after weather delay"
Cons: "United would not give any compensation for overnight delays as a disabled person very uncomfortable trip"
Pros: "Smooth flight once in the air."
Cons: "An hour and twenty minute delay due to weather. Cattle call for boarding."
Pros: "Flight attendant decided this was a water-only flight. No particular reason, just lazy."
Pros: "They were very kind to my very tired toddler for a late night flight."
Pros: "Comfortable seats. Arrived safely."
Cons: "Almost got diverted to Tampa by thunderstorms, but this was not United's doing."
Pros: "I like the people are friendly and when traveling by myself it is always a pleasure to have someone next to me to have a good conversation"
Cons: "I did like the food option. I don't eat cheese and all the food had cheese in it."
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Due to space limitations this was one of the most uncomfortable transatlantic trips in about 30 years"
Pros: "Short flight"
Cons: "Landing was not smooth"
Pros: "Punctual flight and not filled to last seat. Excellent amber beer.option, no extra charge for beer or wine. Crew members were friendly and eager to please. They were happy to supply extra snacks and coffee or water between regular service. Seat reservations were properly done (unlike a flight in June on Etihad)."
Cons: "In boarding, putting groups 3, 4, and 5 in the same line works poorly. Location of electric outlets needs better (i.e. some) documentation; had to ask crew. The heat fluctuated between too warm and too cold; had to put on and take off a fleece every 10-15 minutes. Chicken option for dinner rated spicy, so had to opt for pasta. No Asian options on flight from Japan; sad. So-so movie selection, controlling screen not very easy, screen often too dark. The list of movies in the United Magazine was incomplete and inaccurate. The size limits on carry-on bags and personal items was smaller than other airlines, unnecessarily so for the latter given the size of the space under the seat in front. United is inconveniencing customers without any justification."
Pros: "Loved the crew and the salmon meal was tasty"
Cons: "Needed better choice of Chardonnay"
Pros: "Flight left on time, food was yummy, great coffee and crew was nice"
Pros: "Nothing about this flight was good other than it arrived without falling from the sky into the Pacific Ocean. I was on the back row miserable, worst seat ever. An hour late loading. The airport crew at Kona was really good. Kona airport needs to upgrade their chairs in waiting areas they hard picnic benches. Flight crew talked all night kept people up in the back. Absolutely no ability to sleep. Worst chair and comfort ever. Barley made connection to Las Vegas."
Cons: "Take my advice skip the red eye flights and pay more money for something that lands and leaves at a reasonable hour. We had to wait an hour longer at the airport because they didn't have their crews available."
Pros: "Flight is a quick and easy one."
Cons: "It truly bothers me that during pre-board, United says, "if you have a disability you can board now." Who would want to be the person moving forward to board? Southwest says something to the affect of "if you have a pre-board and need a little extra time." Maybe they could change their verbiage to sound a bit more like we're in the 21st century."
Cons: "Thought we were going to have to spend the night on New Jersey. Because of it. No apologies or compensation. As a result, we didn't get home until almost 3:00 A.M."
Pros: "Great service and fed well!!"
Cons: "4 hour delay but they did give me 5,000 miles. And I think the main problem with the delay was the airports problem of not having parts."
Pros: "It was a regularly good flight, as comfortable as a long flight can be, and I thought the food was pretty good for 'airline food'. Tasty."
Cons: "My ear bud jack happened to not work. No biggie."
Pros: "It's so convenient to fly directly to Western Kentucky and not have to drive to and from the Nashville airport (over two hours drive away.)"
Cons: "Warning to those who haven't been there: food is limited to vending machines at the Paducah airport. It's a small airport, but I'm delighted it's still available. Nashville airport is over two hours drive away."
Cons: "My flight to Pittsburgh was cancelled and NO attempt to rebook was made by united. No compensation. I had to fly to Cleveland and rent a car for $150 and drive to Pittsburgh. United refused to pay for my rental car. Terrible experience."
Pros: "I like that the seats were more comfortable and had at least some padding."
Cons: "The gate had no comfortable seats and looked like a minimalists ' lounge. The gate agent did not actively give any updates to the boarding process."
Pros: "Seeing as we were flying with ANA instead of United, everything was excellent, especially the crew. The food was amazing."
Cons: "there was absolutely no notfication that we were flying with ANA! I understand the flight was booked with united and you guys are part of the star partnership thing or whatever but it made finding out where to check in very stressful and time consuming! Stop overbooking your flights!"
Cons: "Delay. Disgusting snack coffee cold and tasted just awful. Upgraded seat. No tv except on phone and poor choices"
Pros: "The crew was nice"
Cons: "We boarded then sat! There was too much fuel from the previous flight so we had to sit while they unloaded some."
Pros: "Food was not good at all. Loved the new international terminal at heathrow"
Pros: "Movie beverages"
Cons: "Wifi prices"
Cons: "You have reached your limit on how tight you can pack the seats. I am 6ft. 1in. When I sit all the way back in the seat my knees still hit the seat in front of me."
Pros: "The food was tasty for airline food."
Cons: "The tv on the headrest didn't work."
Pros: "The crew on this segment was very nice. They seemed to go out of their way to make everyone happy."
Cons: "It was a painful wait to board the aircraft. The gate crew was running around like they didn't know what they were doing, and they wouldn't fill us in on when we would actually start boarding. We boarded about 30 minutes past the scheduled boarding time. Then once we landed, everyone waited for 30 minutes at the baggage carousel."
Pros: "The service was prompt and professional. The plane on this trip was clean and in good repair. The snack was simple and tasty. It was a pleasure flying United."
Cons: "The first flight from St. Louis to Chicago was very small. While I don't have concerns about flying in a small plane, I can imagine those nervous about air travel would feel concerned with the size of the aircraft."
Pros: "They had a free snack."
Cons: "Boarding process is better than some, but stinks compared to Southwest."
Pros: "Made the flight-arrived home early-good landing!"
Cons: "Racing to make it-thought we hadn't."
Pros: "Late boarding, other then that ok."
Cons: "Both flights were late !!!!"
Pros: "Two out of three pieces of luggage lost. You fall out of love after that. No matter what they do."
Pros: "Quick easy boarding"
Cons: "A bit of delay not to bad though"
Pros: "In spite of late the flight reached before time."
Cons: "though I booked 8 months before yet I was given the last seat. I was rally sad."
Pros: "The flight was short 102 people so the attendants were very attentive."
Cons: "A seat with more cushion would be nice for an 8 hour flight."
Pros: "That I finally got home although it was 4 in the morning!"
Cons: "Delays started early in the afternoon and continued for several hours. At one point the flight was cancelled. About 30 minutes later another flight was created with a 1-3 am flight. We should have been given an option to fly this late or rebook for free. It was too late to travel at this point."
Pros: "Flight staff were friendly and accomodating going to destination"
Cons: "Computer system down at check in on return flight but staff at shannon did great job on checking in manually earphones outlet in seat did not work making return flight very long with no entertainment staff were ok"
Cons: "Never want to fly into newark again. Wrong baggage claim 5 advertised and waited till last bags picked up b4 being told oh we made a mistake and its carousel 7. And if the end of the trip wasn't bad enough the beginning was a nightmare at newark with getting there and the security/tsa..Nobody wants to do their job just pass the buck and make it more chaotic. No wonder there were lines wrapping around terminal 3/4 times. I know this is not directly related to airline but since u insist on flying out of newark it is indirectly. They say la guardia is third world well then newark is fourth/fifth world. Chaos absolute chaos. Please god i will never have to fly united /Lufthansa out of newark again."
