Pros: The service and patience
Cons: Everything was great
Pros: The service and patience
Cons: Everything was great
Pros: Comfortable seating, pleasant food and entertainment.
Cons: Not being charged $1200 for a ticket that I already bought, but had been voided with no notice. And Virgin Atlantic staff not friendly or helpful in any way with this situation.
Pros: Water station!
Pros: The seating in upper class is unconventional and uncomfortable.
Cons: Reconfigure seating in upper class. We will no longer be customers for that reason alone..
Pros: such a big difference in size of aircraft, very comfortable and great crew.
Pros: Crew was very attentive...food selection was excellent
Pros: Nice crew
Cons: Comfort. Seats were very uncomfortable with absolutely NO leg room. I fly a lot and this was one of the WORST leg room experiences I had.
Pros: Karl was amazing! So helpful and sweet!
Cons: Having the crew tell the guy behind me to plug in his ear phones to watch the video in his phone, rather than me after 20 minutes of noise.
Cons: Media screens are old and miscalibrated. Selection was decent. Food is probably average for the industry which to me is worse than fast food.
Cons: The food is not very good at all. One mediocre meal served soon after take-off, then for the rest of the flight tasteless, cardboard pasties and wraps.
Cons: at last minute itinerary was changed.. instead of routing through Brisbane, was now routed through Sydney. Flight from Sydney to LAX was delayed by 4 hours, then missed flight LAX to LAS... overall long delayed arrival. Checked the route through Brisbane, and those flights we're all there, departed and landed all on-time... so wondering what the reason was for the change of the itinerary without a cause (no cancel or delayed flights through Brisbane)
Pros: Crew was very nice. Food was very good and plentiful. Entertainment was good. Overall the very long flight was better than expected.
Cons: It took forever to board in Sydney with all passengers standing and waiting for 45 minutes and never being told what was going on. I resented having my passport and ticket demanded at least 4 times. A bit overkill and a power trip by security. Absolutely despise airport security...there is no uniformity.
Pros: - Presence of entire box sets of some TV shows was a nice touch that I made good use of.
Cons: - EVERY damn movie is prefaced by 4 minutes of ads. - The touchscreens (at least in economy) are slow resistive screens that are horrible for fine control gestures (like slightly changing the volume or position)
Pros: Pilot was great— we don’t thank them enough for a smooth and safe arrival. Plane was great. Ammenities were given (such as ear plugs etc)
Cons: Crew members are a bit bland and lack customer service, but I noticed that as a whole in Australia (slow service/not really interactive or communicative & very quick to make comments and leave) not sure if they just hate Americans based on the media or what. One crew member cut in line at the restroom when there was 3 of us waiting to go. Another told me my husband couldn’t receive his meal because he was napping and then he quickly walked away— Yet i received mine on the flight coming to Australia when my husband asked for me? Sanitation between flights should be more strict-my headphones were opened which lead me to believe my pillow wasn’t changed either, since one had a case and one didn’t.
Pros: Crew was amazing and we got fed so often. The movie choices were good.
Cons: I wish I could have ordered a drink (pay or otherwise) from the tv in front of me
Cons: Missed connection to SFO
Pros: The crew was professional, responsive and friendly.
Cons: The following experience goes down in history as the worst ever because: we had a 3.5 year old child, and mom and dad seated directly in front of our row. The couple ignored the instructions to move seats forward during meals making it impossible to eat. They placed their luggage in the overhead compartment belonging to both rows, which wasn't a problem if they hadn't proceeded to open and close the compartment every 20 minutes. The 300 pd dad repeatedly stepped on my broken toe while reaching for his luggage, while rattling around and disturbing sleeping passengers. And, sadly the child repeatedly threw temper tantrums without any care or effort of intervention from the parents. In short, they terrorized the surrounding travellers. In contrast, my outbound flight, also had a family seated in the row directly in front. This family was the antithesis, considerate and respectful of their fellow passengers. Susan Laws
Pros: Everything about my flights on Virgin Atlantic was amazing. The plane was new and comfortable, the seats seemed to recline more than in other airplane I have been. The entertainment was good with a wide selection of movies and TV shows. The crew was incredibly nice and helpful and I had a really pleasant time talking with them. On the airport team side I can also say they were extremely helpful as I missed my flight and they promptly rebooked me on the next one 3h later, free of charge. I think the stress of missing a flight was completely deflected by the help of the Virgin Atlantic crew at the desk so thank you for that!
Cons: The only thing I would improve is the main dish in the meal. I loved all the small sides like the Boursin and crackers but I found the main meal a little bland l.
Cons: The flight change the gate number immediately so I missed my flight
Cons: Why do I have to get a new boarding pass in London
Pros: Cabin crew were accommodating and nice throughout the flight. Meals were good and the service was quick. Large range of entertainment selection for the trip helped pass the time.
Cons: The check in process and boarding process were very slow. It made going through security a bit stressful and I didn't have much time after going through the security to use the bathrooms or get a quick bite to eat before the plane boarded.
Cons: the food selection did not meet my diet restrictions. Found it hard to avoid due to hunger over the duration
Pros: I loved how the airline crew were very accommodating. This was an awesome experience. A+++
Cons: I have no complaints.
Pros: The crew were very polite and looked smart, I didn’t find them very personable at all though. The entertainment system is fantastic and my meal was ok I guess, I requested the low fat meal, probably should’ve just had the normal one.
Cons: The seats are not very comfortable, very hard and textured seats that just don’t feel nice at all especially on a long flight. I weight about 11 stone (154 pounds) and even I felt like I was taking up a lot of room in my seat.
Cons: Everything about my experience was HORRIBLE.
Pros: The crew was friendly and professional, the food was good and offered frequently due to the long flight time (10.5 hours). The plane was comfortable even though nearly full. Overall, it was a good experience and I would definitely fly with Virgin Atlantic again.
Cons: Food was terrible
Pros: On time.
Cons: During my flight from LAX to LHR I requested (pre-booked) a special meal (Asian Vegetarian). During the flight I was told there was no such request in their records and therefore I had to stay hungry for the entire duration of the flight. During my return flight from LHR to LAX the in flight entertainment system for my seat was not functional. I requested it to be reset several times and in spite of the hostess resetting it several times, it did not function. I had to stay without an entertainment system during the entire flight. This was my first time travel with Virgin Atlantic. I may never fly Virgin Atlantic again.
Pros: Leg room in economy was good. Staff very professional and made a long flight bearable.
Cons: At check in the name on my reservation read Ron, not Ronald which is on my passport. The second agent I was referred to was unpleasant and charging $100. Had same problem out of Seoul but there was no charge for the ticket change. My interaction with the second agent left a very bad taste in my mouth.
Cons: Food was awful. Sorry. Breakfast was unrecognizable. Landed hungry.
Pros: the crew were the friendliest I've flown with (Irish & British)... the lighting was very relaxing and the continuous snack service was much appreciated (especially ice cream).. gonna try premium economy next time as the seats looked even better...
Cons: Vera the entertainment screen was very good but there were no newly released movies, everything seemed to be a couple of months old... the leather headrest was comfortable but kept slipping down to behind my neck, would be nice if it was lockable in position..
Pros: I wish I knew the name of the crew on this flight so that credit is given where it's due. A female steward was incredibly kind to me. She allowed me space to cry in the back of the aircraft, and also gave me her personal tissues. Her care is the only reason I'd give this flight an 'okay.'
Cons: Unlike the incredibly kind woman, another woman on the crew was incredibly rude to me and to other passengers on the plane. She was very obviously annoyed with nearly everything on that flight. The restrooms were beyond disgusting. I have never flown on a flight with a restroom that awful; it smelled horrible and was filthy. It was reminiscent of a portable outhouse, no exaggeration. The pillow on my seat had makeup on it.
Pros: I've had knee surgery and the flight attendants were very accommodating as to "make" and ice pack for me. The recline of the seats was impecible. The food was great. Overall, great flight.
Pros: Legroom was much better than on U.S. carriers doing same long trip.
Pros: Makes travels to LAX a little easier for us dedicated Virgin Melbourne folk. Can. Ow fly direct to LAX without going through Brisbane and Sydney. Food was great. Boarding seemed a little slow. Flight was smooth and on time. Welcome back Virgin.
Pros: The crew were excellent.
Cons: Seats were ridiculously uncomfortable. The seat cushions were worn and had no padding. Very few movie, Show, music and game choices to choose from. The audio input didn't work in my seat. Major fail for a 13+ hour flight.
Pros: Plenty of snacks and great service, with comfy seats
Cons: My luggage did not make it to destination :(
Pros: Staff was top notch in service and kindness
Pros: Having a not full flight and room to spread out. The Dreamliner is awesome. On time departure.
Cons: The wifi did not work at all, and I think I was charged 3 times Landed 30 mins early and then waited an hour for the gate, I get that things happen but we have been on the plane for 11.5 hrs. Figure it out!
Pros: Great direct flight. Quit on the plane. Plenty of time to rest and sleep
Pros: The crew where very attentive and helpful.
Cons: The ticket agent was anal about 1-2 kgs for our checked luggage and even weighed our carry on luggage...which no agent had done on our entire trip from atlanta to melb. Seemed pointless and a hassle for 1-2 kgs.
Pros: Dinner was fantastic! Excellent meal. Flight crew were terrific as well.
Cons: Dislike the recent removal of onboard snacks. It's a very long flight. Nuts or chips or cheese and crackers would be very helpful. Had no idea this service was discontinued until way into the flight. Not sure why it was stopped. Btw I don't believe this was a Virgin Atlantic flight, I believe it was Virgin AUSTRALIA. Think you have names backwards on survey.
Cons: You lost our luggage. We were able to pick up our luggage after the Sydney flight, but they never made it to Minneapolis. What I don't understand is why we were not able to get boarding passes and seat assignments when we did our check-in in Sydney? Why is that so hard? Also, when we were getting our boarding pass in LAX it was so confusing when it asked for checked bags. Our bags were already on a belt going to who knows where - were we supposed to check "yes"? If we had a boarding pass this would not have been an issue.
Pros: great food and service!
Cons: It got a little cold in the cabin for a few hours.
Pros: Crew was awesome and their service was great. I liked that they put snacks like fruit out to eat during the flight.
Cons: The meals were terrible. I flew on VA a couple of years ago and the food was very good but it has really gone down since then.
Cons: Boarding process was unorganized. Food was mediocre compared to emirates. Video monitor was poorly designed and limited options on movies and languages. Crew is just average compared to other airlines Online checkin and seating choices were difficult to do and not user friendly
Pros: Flight attendants were nice.
Cons: Was denied the seat with extra legroom that my husband had paid for. One of my suitcases (zipper) opened on the conveyor belt, maybe it was tossed?
Pros: Superior comfort, class, and style. The crew was friendly and accommodating, the pilots kept you up to date with flight info and departure/arrival time (and kept the seat belt light off almost the entire trip), the food was delicious and offered throughout, and the entertainment was top notch. Seats were comfortable (we had bulkhead row Space+ and they were worth every cent for the international long haul from LAX-BNE and SYD-LAX) and everyone got a pillow/blanket. We got premium noise-canceling headsets, water, and a little care kit including an eye mask and earplugs and a pen to fill out your travel documents. The overhead bin space was huge and we got two free checked bags of luggage up to 50lbs each (I don't know of that's standard or not, or if it came with Space+ seats). SERIOUSLY the best airline.
Cons: Absolutely nothing. For a long haul flight, Virgin Australia is TOP NOTCH!
Pros: Nice food
Pros: The crew was professional & friendly
Cons: Food was terrible honestly, entertainment system didn't work on 1st flight.
Pros: Almost everything, especially the crew.
Cons: Don’t feel like anything should be better to be honest
Pros: economy plus seats were nice, great movie selection, especially international movies
Cons: crew was not friendly, i had to ask for water many times, usually water person walk the aisle. food was terrible. other carriers food were better
Cons: The KLM crew are always great serving and treating you. Well above many other airlines.
Pros: the trip was excellent and comfortable. LOved the windows that shaded out rather than the having to pull down the plastic blind. entertainment on board top notch screen huge One hostess , Helen was absolutely fantastic and the best I ve had on my many trips. I will recommend KLM whenever I can
Cons: the headrest is hard. Apart from that- all was fine
Pros: the drinks
Cons: seat reservation. having to pay for luggage....
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.
Pros: Seat space a bit tight . I should have upgraded to more leg room . Next time!
Cons: Larger meals.
Pros: Best airline in the business quick efficient and outstanding service What else can you say
Pros: And i got it 2 days later. I had to buy a lot of items which were in my suitcase The returning of the suitcase was awfull. In tge end after many phone calls I received it On the 18/12 evening, 2 days after my landing
Pros: The crew was really friendly.
Cons: There was a Force Majeur delay in Helsinki due to wings freezing that caused 20 minute delay to Amsterdam and made the interchange stressful.
Cons: Landlords gave an unpleasant service! Which continued with late of 50min of the flight, they didn’t do anything to help/ to provide the passengers the answers. The food was cold It was comfort place to sit. Bad experience with KLM
Pros: Very attentive crew. Attended to needs immediately. Took a lot of time with each person when someone had something to say.
Cons: The seat I had with no seats in front of me was very small. Much smaller than the other economy seats because the tray table and video screen were in the armrests. Paid extra for the legroom by ended up losing it side to side. Really had to squeeze into the seat.
Pros: Very friendly onboard personnel - I really had kind of homy feeling.
Pros: Crew was excellent -kind nice and very attentive
Cons: Entertainment went out mid flight. Had to be reset off 30 mins but cam back up
Pros: Amsterdam airport and Rome airport were as breeze to navigate, even only knowing English
Pros: Face recognition was amazing
Cons: Too hot on plane
Pros: Everything was clean and well organized.
Cons: The flight was delayed 1 1/2 hours.
Pros: Everything was great! Crew incredible. They acknowledged my wife’s birthday and made her feel special. Food was ultra salubrious. Loved the big screen monitor.
Cons: No complaints about anything.
Pros: I am so grateful to have been provided delicious and filling vegan meals on this long flight. Thank you for offering a dietary option that is compassionate toward animals and contributes less to climate change! Now if only the planes were powered by clean, renewable energy... Hopefully that will become a reality someday very soon! Oh, and also the crew on this flight was exceptionally kind and helpful. Thank you so much!
Cons: I did not enjoy the turbulence, which I suppose is unavoidable. More importantly, I felt quite guilty about the greenhouse gas emissions of my flight. I have decided to cut down on my air travel as much as possible as a way of reducing my carbon footprint.
Pros: Seats were very comfortable, food was excellent, the staff was very nice, cabin was quite and roomy.
Cons: No outlets to charge digital devices, and need more bathrooms on board. I was able to sleep most of the 11 hour flight so I did not take advantage of the entertainment.
Pros: Great on board service from a very professional crew.
Cons: Can't think of a thing.
Pros: The leg room, was surprisingly roomy
Cons: The food and that there was no entertainment.
Cons: infotainment was down. Lost my luggage the flight was delayed
Pros: Fast boarding
Cons: The entertainment system wasn’t working for the whole 10 hour flight.
Cons: The cabin crew was racist. She told me to move back from an empty seat just because she wanted one of the guys ( from her country ) to set on it! Very rude and racist.
Cons: The streaming service didn’t work
Pros: Good Experience
Cons: Nothing much
Pros: All cabin crew were courteous. Refreshments were light. Check stuff were helpful, they did devise that the flight was full and due to space hand luggage would prefer to be put in hold free of charge. We did not have any problem with this. Plane was clean.
Cons: Service was a little slow going through the gate, it seemed to take a while for everyone to get on board.
Pros: Crew were friendly. Flight was comforyable smooth and on time. Nice snack.
Pros: The flight crew was nice. Plane departed/arrived on time.
Cons: I paid €60 extra to sit in the emergency door seat to get more leg room but once.i was in the plane learned for more leg room I accepted a smaller seat next to a bathroom and no entertainment. I could not store my belongings near me. No power outlet to charge my devices for my own entertainment on a 7 hour flight. Dealing with constant traffic for the bathroom. I sat in the middle seat between two hours other men. It was a constant struggle arm space. After 7hours in the air I could not wait to get off the plane. If I didn't actually pay an extra €60 for the seat I may not feel bad but I feel like I might have been better off without paying for the "upgrade"
Pros: Airlines issue
Cons: Profiling certain customers
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.
Pros: Flight was delayed for three hours and was a very stressful flight
Cons: Flight was not on time and got to destination very very late pier management of aircrafts
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: The flight was very good, specially considering it was a daylight one. Staff was friendly and servicial. Tue food was above the industry's average.
Pros: quick and relaxed
Cons: Per usual, 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. Strange choice of in-flight movies; no accounting for taste, I guess.
Pros: That we didn't crash
Cons: Being delayed and missing my connecting flight. No entertainment onboard (for hours and hours).
Pros: No chargers or tv on planes
Cons: At Amsterdam we were told that our checkin luggage wouldn't be at Sydney!! Some low fat meals were terrible!
Cons: Terrible service in flight and customer service wise .. app functionality was below
Pros: Loved this 747! Crew was professional and food was very good.
Cons: We had a long wait (25 minutes) at the gate because we were early.
Pros: It was a short flight so it was O.K.
Cons: Boarding was odd. Go to airport early and counters were not open, did on line check in so was able to avoid the self check in at airport. Also self check in luggage seems confusing with no ground crew to help. It didn't affect me but lots of confused passenger.
Pros: Good and plenty of food available.
Cons: No power to charge phones, laptops, etc and no WiFi available. For such a long trip (10 hours) below industry standard.
Pros: They flew full speed to catch up with the delays.
Cons: Departure was scheduled with one hour delay. When everyone was boarded they mentioned a leaking toilet. It took them 1,5 hours to disable the toilet. In the mean time, no drinks, no snacks, nothing. So we should depart at 18:00 but it became 19:30. Our first drinks and meal was no earlier then 21:00. The crew should have anticipated better that the technical problem would at least take one hour and give everyone a drink at least.
Pros: Timely, clean, friendly crew. Love this airline.
Pros: Great crew, they were very nice. Food was good enough, could use more variety but i never had good food on any flight.
Cons: If a person who checks in would not inform me that I have to seat next to bathroom
Pros: Crew was courteous and helpful.
Cons: Seats are cramped a bit
Cons: Service and attitude
Pros: It was good
Pros: Evry thing but the dilay
Cons: If we arrive on time
Pros: The crew
Cons: Food. Not enough vegetarian options
Pros: Delayed flights cause missed transit flight. No apology, no compensation. 7 hours stuck in airport. No food on stop or flight
Pros: Seat was not too comfortable....
Pros: They are trying to improve their service in business class
Cons: Lacking. Service levelnotbetter airlines, starting with boarding , nor we'll separated lines, food service, don't offer water drinks orblow. how to mix drinks.
Cons: Better boarding experience with consistency in allowance for appropriate carry on luggage.
Pros: Aeroflot was a classy airline, I didn't expect it but appreciated it
Cons: Flight cancelled without communication, zero customer service, awful experience, will never fly Aeroflot again
Pros: The crew was amazing The seats are worst
Pros: Service was excellent. For this long flight, we chose premium economy. It was very good and a lot more room then standard economy
Pros: Flight attendants were excellent. There at least two meal and four drink services including tea and coffee after food. Kept up on the bathrooms as well.
Cons: There were many entertainment services offered but I had some difficulty using the screen. Was able to watch movies etc
Pros: The best crew ever. I was impressed with this airline
Pros: They let me buy a beer at off hours from regular food and drink service. Movie choices were good.
Cons: Really noisy, rattling sounds through most of the trip. Not very generous with drinks, of all types. Old and unfriendly entertainment system. They need newer jets.
Cons: You give a short follow-up flight. It is impossible to get the flight. You do not update the distance from gate D to gate F I got stuck in the field until the next day without the suitcase and all the people I had arranged with them in Shanghei I could not meet You should be ashamed
Pros: The crew was very nice and the food and snacks and drinks were very welcoming.
Cons: There was no entertainment for the 12 hour without any explanations.
Pros: The crew was amazing and tentative to all of my needs and if there was any question or concern they were quick to respond to it. They also fed us multiple times and offered snacks and beverages throughout the entire flight.
Pros: Even though there was a significant delay there was recompense for Hotel or fare.
Pros: Tha personal
Cons: Very happy and will fly again
Pros: Liked getting herring
Cons: Didn't like the wine or most of the food also didn't have any entertainment on Tel Aviv to Moscow leg
Pros: Comfortable, friendly staff
Cons: My monitor for in flight entertainment was broken. My flight was 13 hours and attendants were unable but to solve the issue.
Pros: I had a feeling the service and the plane were for VIP persons.
Cons: Nothing to complain of.
Cons: 1 hour late, sitting in the plane in tel aviv, with no explanation whatsoever. Then when arrived to Moscow after plane taxiing, STILL 1 hour INSIDE THE PLANE without letting the people out!!! I Missed my train and I will have to stay a night in moscow for nothing!! Horrible experience. I will never in my life fly aeroflot again.
Pros: The pilot is good
Cons: On both flights the crew was bad. The chair is uncomfortable. There was a delay of more than an hour in the serving of food and an hour's delay in clearing the garbage. When I turned to the stewardess there was no proper answer. Next time I will consider twice if ill flying with Aeroflot.
Cons: The line to checkin was THE LONGEST checking line that I have ever seen. Perhaps it was because the flight took off on Vriday afternoon when most Israei,I don't work snd there were an inadequate number of checkin clerks. But that is NO EXCUSE. I have also never been on a p,and with so many small children....who were VERY noisy. You should seat them all in one section, curtained off from other passengers. It was an unpleasant experience.
Cons: Was late Food not good Screrns are so bad
Pros: השירות, הצוות, העמידה בזמנים-היה בסדר גמור!
Cons: המזוודה של מרים נשארה במוסקבה! כבר שלושה ימים היא מסתובבת ללא החפצים האישיים שלה-ללא הציוד, איפור, הלבשה אישית, פיז'מה, נעלי-בית ובגדים להחלפה. נכון שאמרו לה במשרדי איירפלוט שהיא יכולה לרכוש ציוד נחוץ וישלמו לה בהצגת קבלות, אבל עכשיו יש לה הוצאות לא מתוכננות והכסף הולך למינימום דברים שאי אפשר להסתדר בלעדיהם ושווים כסף, זמן ונוחות. המזוודה בינתיים איננה! איפה מזומן להוצאה הלא צפויה הזאת? איפה פיצוי על עגמת נפש? ומתי כבר תגיע המזוודה??!
Pros: This was a cheap flight from LAX to ZRH with a layover in Moscow and that's about as good as it gets.
Cons: The check in personnel was not that helpful and were very slow to check in everyone to their corresponding flights, and since kiosks were not available for aeroflot the experience was unavoidable. The plane economy class is really as uncomfortable as it gets for a transatlantic flight. There were no beer options for the flight (nor vodka which is weird), and flight attendants weren't that happy to talk to you in English. 5 hours wait at Moscow are the worst, if you're thinking on saving some dollars on a transatlantic flight this is not worth it.
Pros: My initial flight from LAX to Moscow 10 days before the video entertainment system wasn't working for anyone, so we had to endure a 12 hour flight without movies or music. But this flight the system was working so I was happy for that. Food was fair.
Cons: Again the on boarding process was a mess. Gate number changed and everyone was once again cramming them selves into the line from all directions. Essentially there was no line. We also were at a gate where another flight ahead of us was still boarding (to London) so I think that made people more anxious and frustrated. When we finally passed through the gate and boarded a transport bus, the bus only took us a few feet away to the next gate, and they had us climb up a set of stairs up to the entry way from where our original gate number was located. Why even bother changing the gate then!
Pros: Cabin staff (Russian) tried very hard, had limited English, drinks available through our flight. In flight entertainment there were a lot of choices (13 1/2 hr flight). For LA to Spain it was the best price.
Cons: Announcements from flight deck in English very hard to impossible to understand. Most passengers are Russian. There are some differences in culture and etiquette that exist and you can either deal with them or you can't. Their norm is to be willing to stand in long lines. Personal space may be less than what we are accustomed to in US. The airline staff usually have some English but are not interested in having a discussion with you, just a couple of words. Food: passable, no more. Lady sitting next to me opened up a paper then plastic wrap, placed 2 smoked fish on a stack of napkins then proceeded to dismantle it with her fingers and eat it. It was smelly and disgusting. I commented to a flight attending that I found this impolite to inflict on other passengers - nothing was done - she didn't say a word to the passenger. I don't want to rule others but when I pay money, I don't feel that I should have no say. I might do it again but the cost difference would really have to make it worthwhile.
Pros: Food and drinks were completely free (red and white wine was the only alcoholic beverage unfortunately). They had a surprisingly good selection of movies (new and old), which update frequently. Gets the job done perfectly well and at a fraction of the cost. Will fly again.
Cons: Seat size/spacing was tight; rather uncomfortable if you're 6 ft 2 in or taller. I imagine this is always true for economy class on any 12+ hour flight. English on intercom for in-flight announcements was passable to poor at times, but attendants were extremely nice.
Pros: Movies Not as tight as other airlines
Cons: Need more games like trivia Food was very bad crew did not come to pick up trash
Pros: Good entertainment and flight crew
Cons: I have flown all over the world with guitar as my carry-on. This time the check-in crew forced me to check it AND charged me for it. I had 1 checked bag (which is free) and the 2nd bag (which is $50). But because they FORCED me to check in my guitar, the total became $200. It is absolutely ridiculous. I want to take it up with corporate and get my money back.
Cons: Three delayed flights and all we were given were food coupons. We missed a whole day due to flight delays. With our connecting flight from Moscow to Madrid, they were so late that they started moving with not everyone in heir seat. Seemed unsafe but I can tell they were in a rush since they were so far behind schedule.
Cons: Kosher food option was not great. We got the same dry roll, humus and chicken salad for three meals in a row and the hot entree was greasy and also repetitive
Pros: I liked everything, food, service, clean aircraft, Stuarts were very helpful and nice, love this company.
Cons: Small plane and no entertainment. Food is bland and meal options not changed for at least 3 months. For a frequent traveller that is bad.
Pros: the food was good on this flight. the flight attendants were very nice.
Cons: The seats are made for children. I am only 5'0" and my knees hit the seat in front of me.
Pros: The flight from tel aviv left on time
Cons: Had no vegetarian food for me although I ordered it, the food I got as a replacement was bad.
Pros: Was very pleasantly surprised. Thought there would be a problem because they did not at first seem to have a vegan option upon making a special request ahead of time, but it turned out that if you're vegan you can specify you wish to have a vegetarian meal that does not have dairy (no cheese, etc.) and has no eggs in it, either! Thanks for having this type of meal instead of the meat option!
Cons: Flight was too short, was sad when it ended, ha, ha, ha!!! It was like being on vacation even before the trip started, and before getting there!!!!!!!!!
Pros: All the flights were on time
Cons: We ask for one vegetarian food and they hadn't and the normal food was very poor
Pros: On time good service
Cons: The audio system was not working despite system restart
Pros: The only good thing was the entertainment I had on one leg of my flights. The 6 hour flight there was no entertainment, the 12 hour flight had tv and movies to watch which made the flight livable.
Cons: The crew was rude. Barely spoke any english and looked at you like you were stupid when you asked questions. The flight was 4 hours late, they did not give us an accommodations for being late. The bathrooms were disgusting from the beginning. The seats tiny and it was super hot in the plane. The flight attendants would hit you as they walked by almost every time I either had the back of my head hit or elbows knocked off the armrests. I will never be flying Aeroflot again. Tried to make my trip economical but it was not worth the dog food or warm coke they served.
Cons: I LOST MY LUGGAGE BACK FROM NEW YORK BACK TO ISRAEL AND I HAVE GOTTEN HORRIBLE, HORRIBLE, HORRIBLE SERVICE IN HELPING ME TRY TO FIND IT!!!!! IF YOU FLY THIS AIRLINE FORGET ABOUT TAKING YOUR LUGGAGE I HAVE HEARD STORIES ABOUT PEOPLE LOSING THEIR LUGGAGE AND THINGS GETTING STOLEN FROM THEIR LUGGAGE!!!!!
Pros: The crew is nice
Cons: No respect of distancing the seats ; all the seats were occupied. No wifi
Cons: Short and sweet
Cons: Flight was delayed for 4+ hours
Pros: The seats were spacious and the crew was wonderful. The crew actually made the long flight more tolerable. Will seek out Delta/Air France for further international flights.
Cons: Flight was delayed
Pros: Quick boarding, comfortable seating. Great food!
Cons: The seats and IFE were a bit outdated. Comfortable, but outdated. My family had issues with their screens and one had to use the remote as the touch screen was no longer functional.
Cons: Crew on the ground was very rude
Cons: Entertainment worked sporadically
Pros: The whole crew is so kind
Cons: Delta made my whole first flying experience the best.

Pros: Food and drinks very good
Cons: In economy class the movies unable to listen to with ear buds. Bring my own next time.
Pros: Good food and crew
Cons: Plane was old and seats were super tiny. Even an average guy would be uncomfortable in it. Can’t sit in one spot for longer than 15 min without getting sore.
Pros: Crew was very nice. Food was good and tasty.
Cons: Plane seemed a little worn, which surprised me since it was an A380. Not that old. I had purchased an upgrade to a seat with more legroom, only to find out there was no USB plug for charging my phone. All standard seats have them. Would have been nice to be warned about that.
Pros: On time, staff was nice.
Cons: Not many options and not even a glass of champagne. That’s a minimal requirement. No sparkling water. Just very limited
Pros: I did like Flying with Delta and Air France but not with Ukrainian airlines (when booking , it should tell you what airlines will be used , to make a better selection )
Cons: When I purchased my flight ticket , I purchased with a checked bag (23 kg /50 #) how ever ( who will fly to Ukraine with a 10kg suitcase) I booked for a KLM flight , they used (partener airlines ) when I arrived to LA I flew with Delta , they checked my Suitcase at no cost all the way to my final destinations , that was expected ! When I was going to return , they made me payed 120 dollars ( in Kiev , Ukraine (UIA) , I was very disappointed and I really will love an explanation about all this !
Pros: Crew was nice although one fellow was a little too “nervous” and looked bossy
Cons: Food was awful. Asked for vegan meal they got it half right, as vegan is not vegetarian. And the second meal or snack as they say was not vegetarian or vegan at all.
Pros: En deux mots, tout était médiocre, avion, « nourriture » (si on appeler ça comme ça) même les hôtesses travaillaient avec une sale gueule.. Très déçu d’Air France
Cons: Le capitain et l’aterrisage
Pros: The food, beverages and choices of movies, entertainment There was a medical emergency that caused the flight to land in Canada. This was handled very professionally - I hope the passenger ended up getting the care needed and is doing well.
Pros: Very nice stews. Food was A plus compared to US airlines AND included. Great list of movies etc.
Pros: Food and wine was very good. Music selection was excellent.
Cons: Not enough leg room.
Pros: It was on time
Cons: Hard seats Boarding was 35 min delayed
Pros: On time.
Cons: Did not seat together passengers, although booked and checked in at the same time.
Pros: From the boarding, to the friendly hostesses to the food and the business class seat, I was impressed all the way. My first time to fly Air France business to the US and it was great. I recommend it!
Cons: I just expected better toilet bag for business but what was given out was just basic.
Pros: We flew with our special needs child without requesting any particular accommodations except for gluten free meals. The gate staff and flight crew identified him and allowed us special bordering that facilitated the process. That act of kindness is a rare experience on our part. Thank you Air France staff!
Cons: It is very difficult to get around CDG airport with a disabled person. There is no shuttle. By the time we got to check in, we were ten minutes late. They would not check us in, and we paid over $700 to change tickets to the next flight. When I complained, I was told to stop being rude or I would get no ticket at all. My mother is 94 years old and we did the best we could given the circumstance.
Pros: The stewardesses were extremely kind and helpful to me as I was travelling alone with my toddler. I really appreciated their help and kindness.
Pros: Food and service was good and price was acceptable
Cons: Very long route
Cons: They were unfreindly and rude.
Cons: at no point when buying my ticket did the site say zero bags were included. In fact, when purchasing it said that information about baggage was not available.Shocked to have to pay 50 dollars for one bag. I am member of Flying Blue. One bag has always been included in the price of a ticket flying transatlantic.
Cons: Plane was canceled at the last minute with a transfer desk literally assaulted by 100s of people. Only 3 persons on the desk. No lane for sky priority. Queued for nearly two hours before some airport employee gave us instructions to travel by train without any other information or tickets etc. Had to buy my ticket. Couldn’t recuperate my suitcase. Had to wait for it the next day for three hours. Up to this hour I don’t know how I am going to be reimbursed (train and plane).
Cons: They loosed our reserved seats, our luggage, food was awful, ground staff was disrespectful.
Pros: In cabin crew was attentive and friendly. Food was good and came at good times. Middle bathroom on Airbus 380 was big and comfy.
Cons: Boarding was not too well organized and I followed Security's direction who put me in wrong line and I wasn't able to board with my priority group. Sitting in exit row with no floor storage so this delay made it hard to find overhead storage above my seat. (Grrrr) Entertainment system didn't work which made the flight feel LOOONG. (They offered an in-flight credit, but I'd paid for premium exit row seat and had to choose between moving to working system in crowded middle seat or keep premium, exit seat. I decided to have them move me to a seat with a working entertainment system, which were available and they'd offered, but never happened.) When I got home, I discovered the gift I purchased with in-flight credit and my own money wasn't the one I'd requested from Duty Free catalog so now I have to figure out how to solve this problem. (COULDN'T GET IT RIGHT.) Premium exit row seat was narrow, due to in-seat tray table & entertainment system, but seatbelt mounts and thinly padded seat made it even more uncomfortable on a long flight.
Pros: Everything was very prefect and would love to fly again.
Pros: Crew was welcoming
Cons: Space between the seats was too small.
Pros: Short, lots of leg space
Cons: Disappointed to get delayed due to control tower issues at CdG. Landed more than 30 mins late in London
Pros: No delays, service with a smile
Cons: Nothing to report.
Pros: Crew was friendly and polite, both beverages and an excellent lunch was offered.
Cons: A delay was not ideal but nothing to worry about since the flight arrived on time.
Pros: The flight crew was excellent. My husband and I flew economy and I saw the crew keep passengers well fed (several meals and snacks) and were attentive to everyone's needs and all done with a smile. I thought the hot towels for cleansing our hands before meals was a very nice touch!
Pros: Cheap aircraft, not even headsets
Cons: Dirty aircraft, I expect more when I pay a lot
Pros: It was clean The crew was very kind Food was very good Flight was on time
Cons: Seats were exceedingly close Screens for entertainment were small and game controls were difficult to use
Cons: Too crowded
Cons: Meal choice missing kosher non-gluten combination.
Pros: movies were great, watched a lot of them food, while nothing to write home about, was at least tasty and not inedible the staff was great, friendly, welcoming, hard working loved that we could have wine and snacks
Cons: we had paid for the exit row and had a luxurious amount of room. But when we tried to sleep, our fellow passengers came and stood at our feet and talked so loudly that we could not possibly sleep. They stayed there for more than an hour. Would have loved for the staff to maybe ask them to tone it down, if not move.
Pros: Friendly crew; comfort; punctuation. Fast boarding
Cons: Simple food - very small amounts. No entertainment.
Pros: Not much
Cons: Ground service at check-in was very poor: Misinformation and failure to provide a level of service that other SkyMiles partners provide for Gold level traveler.
Pros: Boarding was fast and efficient. Flight attendant staff were friendly and very courteous.
Cons: Vegetarian food choices are too limited. Snack and beverage availability on long flights like this are too few and far between.
Pros: Same as above, the crew was very friendly and the food was great.
Cons: Seating was cramped and uncomfortable for a tall person.
Pros: Boarding was efficient, the flight was on schedule, crew was nice.
Cons: The temperature for this leg of the trip seemed very cold. I wore 2 sweaters & a jacket plus the blanket. Hard to rate entertainment (I wasn't aware of any).
Cons: The worse experience ever. I booked the flight and then they canceled it, i tried changing the dates but the website was giving me an error so i called them, after being on the phone for 2 hr some guy answered who seemed very tired and not thrilled working for LOT. Rood and not helpful, told me to try FB messenger and online changing again. Failed to get a voucher, refund or change the dates online, was still getting an error. on messenger they answered and told me i can get a voucher, i told them i don't want it and after that they stopped replying all together. good thing i got my money back by filing a dispute with my credit cart company.
Pros: New plane, comfortable seats, very nice flight attendants.
Cons: There is no way to pre-order meals on LOT flights other than calling a Warsaw phone number. Other airlines allow this both during online check-in and at any other time as part of managing your booking.
Cons: Entertainment system operated intermittently. Headphone jack didn't make good contact with plug, no noise reducing headphones, mediocre food.
Pros: Crew. seat. Quality of flight
Cons: Just keep as is
Cons: Improve customer servive
Cons: The flight was canceled 2 hours before taking off. I was transferred to later flight with Austrian airlines
Cons: The loading was a mistake. We were bused out to the plane but they didn’t start until the planned 30 mins before departure and it took 90 mins so we left over an hour after we were scheduled. Landing so late that a number of people couldn’t make their connections
Cons: 3.5hours delay
Cons: Din’t be almost 4 hours late No explanation, no apology
Pros: Crew was great.
Cons: I had to switch seats due to recliner and tv remote did not work. Also, my baggage did not arrive on my flight. I had a 14 hour layover in Warsaw which was plenty of time to transfer onto plane. This also occurred on my flight to Germany.
Pros: Generous service, excellent vegetarian meals (my special order), excellent telephone help prior to flight.
Cons: Delayed boarding time with no information or updates provided, touch screen didn't work, bathrooms dirty toward end if flight.
Pros: Crew provided great service.
Cons: Seat was not stable and moved when I moved. In the toilet the cover of toilet was falling down constantly. There was no Wifi (what is now quite ussual)
Pros: Crew was nice!
Cons: It was an old plane
Pros: Crew was OK
Cons: Business class seats are awful, as they are for all European flights. Regular seat with middle seat unoccupied. No entertainment at all (no movies, no music)
Pros: the crew was really amazing!
Pros: The aircraft was big and clean, but the seats were not comfortable. No entertainment at all, not sure why it was list for review. My biggest problem was with their communicates. I booked this flight from Tel Aviv to London with 60min.layover in Warsaw, the schedule LOT offered. .The first leg to Warsaw was 30min. late without any announcement and no one mentioned about how it would affected connecting flights. So I asked the flight attendent before lading in Warsaw and she suggested to run throught the security. We thought we might have a chance as we were sitting close to the front rows. Nah, not so fast. It turned out that's not as rsimple as unning between the gates, everyone had to be shuttled to the main terminal and only the business class got a small van and went first, abd we were not allowed on that van even I told the guy we needed to catch the flight. Long story short, we finally made to the gate, Thanks to a LOT personnel pushed us to the front of security check and informed the gate we were coming. We literally RAN after the security to the gate. They reopened the gate to let us in and the aircraft pushed away right after we got on. The luggage, with that tight schedule, of course they would not be able to make the swich to London. So we had nothing except the cloth from Tel Aviv, its about 15C in tempture, we were freezing. Waiting for our luggage to be delivered to our hotel for warm clothes before we can go out
Cons: Boarding process was terrible, delayed for 3 hours and I have missed my other flight
Pros: Food/drink options
Cons: Customer service
Pros: Overall it was a good flight
Cons: Some passengers arrive late 1 hour from transfer flight, but meantime plane crew started relocating existing passengers to different seats without checking if the seat is available, and that created chaos.
Cons: Food and not enough entertainment
Pros: All in all, the seats had more legroom than I expected for economy. Much more than American airlines (AA, United, Delta). Love the direct flight as it saves so much time.
Cons: This was the 4th flight I have taken between LAX and Warsaw...but was the first time that there were no beer nor wine available in between meal services. On a 12-13 hour flight, this was a definite disappointment compared to my other experiences on LOT. The other concern was there were only two meals, and no snack service on a very long flight. This again stood out in contrast to the previous flights I have taken on LOT.
Pros: Not much.
Cons: This is about as budget as you can get. Entertainment systems didn’t work, drinks were warm. Food was mediocre. Bathroom doors didn’t work, and the toilet seat wouldn’t stay up while using it! Yuck! Had to shuttle EVERYWHERE between flights, before and after. Crew was not attentive, and not so friendly either. Only good note was the young lady who checked our bags in Warsaw and helped get our seats together (after the airline messed the seat assignment up in the first place). Ugh. Worst airline I’ve been on.
Cons: Still waiting for our luggage two hours after deplaning. The luggage has not been unloaded from the plane. Hundreds of people still waiting This is unacceptable
Cons: On Monday, May 21, payment was made for 2 suitcases in the amount of $47. At check in next day we were asked to pay and paid 40 Euro for 2 suitcases. We told them that we already paid, to no avail. We would like to have an explanation. According to LOT luggage policy we should not be paying for 1 suitcase per person at all..
Pros: Good price.
Pros: Service and overall experience
Cons: Media system was not working correctly
Pros: my flight canceled from WAW to EWR
Cons: my flight canceled from WAW to EWR
Cons: 2 hours late !!!
Pros: Your crew manager was being very arrogant.. No tolerance at all
Pros: The crew was hospitable and warm. All the in-flight service was attentive and high-quality. We had a wonderful experience with LOT and would reccent them.
Cons: The only potential difficulty was the short layovers. We made our connection boarding with only 20 minutes to spare.
Pros: Flight on time... arrived on time.... food was great....
Pros: Crew was friendly.
Cons: Calling the trip 'business class' is simply a bad lie. While it is common in Europe to give this dirty nasty lie do not mistake this flight to a 'business class'. It is simply that you get same seats and spacing as in the other torture chamber known as "economy" which I call cattle class (I suspect they would not let them fly cattle in those conditions). This lie is based on leaving the middle seat empty. Otherwise teh torture is the same. In short I hope someone will sue the SOB that invented this concept and that was allowed to call this 'business class'. It is nothing short of a fraud.
Pros: Very roomy well designed plane. Good communication from pilot and staff.
Cons: I lost my iPad during this flight. Luckily it was found in the Warsaw airport but the airline did not do anything to help me besides giving me some phone numbers and email addresses. It would cost more to ship it back to the US then the iPad is worth. It would be nice if lot would provide help to get it to me.
Cons: The flight was cancelled
Pros: I can't give any review, because I cancelled my flight.
Pros: It was on time
Cons: We were forced to pay for our checked bag and it felt like a scam. We even showed the staff the website where it said free 1st checked bag and they said we don't work for LOT we work for airport. Very scammy to me. Felt very unfair.
Pros: Getting off at the end
Cons: Food, seats, no entertainment the worse business class in the industry. Boarding was also a mess. Absolutely no redeeming features.
Cons: The airline left bagages of 30 passengers at Origen since AC was too small. Two hours at the airport to file report, have to wait for next flight Never again LOT
Cons: I flew with a baby and I wasn't given any basssinet on the flight, and even worse the crew was giving me a hard time about it.
Cons: No space
Pros: Crew was polite and efficient.
Pros: Price of tickiet
Pros: Newer plane. More efficient boarding process.
Cons: No entertainment system at all.
Pros: The staff serve nice
Cons: Chronic failure in flight schedules
Cons: No entertainment on that flight
Pros: All the rest
Cons: I bought economy ticket, yet I had to pay extra for my suitcase
Pros: Absolutely nothing
Cons: We where more than 3 hours late. Crew couldn't care less about even saying welcome to you. plane was filthy
