Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Easy check in and comfortable flight. The crew are very helpful."
Pros: "Usual overall great service."
Cons: "They were stingy with the beverages. No sodas until 2/3 way through the flight, and small, infrequent cups of water, all while running an “ad” telling me to stay hydrated."
Cons: "Everything was excellent"
Pros: "Beautiful aircraft flight attendants speak 19 languages additional leg room fabulous entertainment"
Cons: "only had jetblue as partner and when my flight had to be changed it presented a huge problem- they need more US partnerships to provide better options"
Pros: "Loved the service. My flight was from NYC to Milan."
Cons: "There was not one thing."
Cons: "Would like to put my feet up in front of me."
Cons: "Zero opportunity for refund or rescheduling. Response: 'Sorry for your misfortune but no refund is available since you used a third party ."
Pros: "Loved every moment!"
Cons: "Movie selection terrible."
Pros: "The movie selections, and really nice lighting on board."
Pros: "Entertainment good and crew"
Cons: "Boarding in milan horribly disorganized."
Pros: "The delay was too long and disorganized."
Pros: "This is our first time flying Emirates and we were very happy with the airline's comfort, food & crew. We would definitely fly with them again. They also have checked bags at no additional charge."
Cons: "As with every other airline the boarding stinks. Everybody cues up even when their zone is not called because they want first access to the overhead space. I also don't like being charged extra to pick my seats."
Pros: "Spacious, great entertainment selection, crew is very attentive"
Cons: "Not all seats can lean back"
Pros: "Enough leg room, wide seads"
Cons: "Food was terrible."
Pros: "Stuff and everything else was just magnificent. If you have opportunity don't miss this company"
Cons: "Nothing. Everything was just perfect. Specially stuff"
Pros: "The flight itself was great, though it was 4 hours delayed. The interface between Jet Blue and Emirates didn't work."
Cons: "I booked roundtrip flights in two legs, so Jet Blue, Emirates, Emirates, Jet Blue. The two airlines didn't seem to interface. In each direction for some reason, I was unable to check in online for the second flight, which didn't make sense (so Emirates there and Jet Blue back). On top of that, neither could give me boarding passes that would work for the other. The customer service kiosk took about 15 minutes to get this done for Jet Blue in JFK."
Pros: "Comfortable seats, comfortable flight and excellent service."
Cons: "Hard to hear the announcements."
Pros: "Loved the flight crew...very friendly and attentive. Also love the entertainment options."
Cons: "Would love a little more legroom. Paid for high bandwidth wifi...pretty spotty service"
Pros: "Good staff"
Pros: "Great flight from Milano to NYC. Always traveling with emirates"
Pros: "Seat comfort Free booze"
Cons: "The fat guy farting in front of me"
Cons: "In my flight from Milan (MXP) to New York (JFK), I had a seat on 63C (aisle seat). A woman seating on my sided asked me to change my seat with her son who was on 74F (middle seat). I said no, because it would be a seat several rows back an in the middle. I had paid more to have the aisle seat, so it did not make any sense to change to a middle seat. However, some minutes later, an Emirates employee asked me again if I could change the seats. He created such an awkward situation, that it was impossible to do not change to the other seat. I tried to argument that he was giving me no other option, but to accept the change. In summary, I had a good seat due to the higher fee that I had paid, but I was transferred to the back in a middle seat. I thought Emirates was a serious company. As I told their employee, I do not plain to fly with them anymore."
Pros: "I would like to say this is the most horrific experience I have ever had traveling and using Kayak. I was late by 10 mins getting to the ticket counter and Emirates gave my seat away. I then proceeded to attempt to rebook and the Emirates agent advised they are sold out for the next 3 days and have no flight alternatives to offer. I contact flight network and the person I spoke proceeds to tell me the same thing and there is nothing they can do for me. Basically that I would need to purchase a whole new ticket on another airline as Emirates doesn't have availability. Which I did. Now I'm looking online and Flight Network has my exact flight on Emirates available at same price I paid for my ticket. But now my new ticket purchased to get home is non-refundable. I'm out over 1000 dollars because of bad info. This has been a horrific experience and after being loyal to Kayak for years.... I will never use the site again."
Cons: "Before the flight landed and before an announcement was made to bring seats upright, I was repeatedly poked by a crew member to wake up. This was not necessary since we were not close to landing. Very rude and uncomfortable."
Cons: "Carry on weight retractions and scattered boarding"
Pros: "Service was phenomenal as well as quality of food and entertainment."
Cons: "I can not say anything was wrong at all."
Pros: "Spacious seating."
Cons: "I wanted to sit upstairs"
Pros: "Great entertainment options. Good tasting dinner and pizza. Decently comfortable seats:good recline, nice headrests, and sufficient leg room, but the seat and back pads were hard."
Cons: "Smoked salmon is gross for on a plane,even just as an appetizer. Meals were skimpy (dinner, apple/granola bar, pizza snack) for such a long 8+ hour flight. Collecting blankets & headphones well before landing was inconsiderate (I was COLD for the last 40+ minutes, and couldn't watch anything or listen to music for the last 30 minutes). Flight attendants needed to offer pens for customs forms."
Pros: "Pretty spacious for economy, clean, well-lit, easy to navigate. I really liked the windows in the cabin on this flight compared to other planes. Crew was kind. Easy to use entertainment and movies. The temperature was moderate, which means very comfortable with the blankets that were provided."
Cons: "Ordered vegetarian meal, was served vegan meal with margarine. I specifically stated that dairy was ok, and the vegan meal was not good. Boarding was a bit of a disaster, unclear and hoards of people blocking aisles and visibility. We also got in late which is very problematic."
Pros: "Great cabin crew"
Cons: "Ground process and lounges were not different from Business Ckass"
Pros: "Best airline. Comfortable seats"
Pros: "Easy booking, seat availability, massive music library."
Pros: "Emirates has a great reputation, and now I've experienced first hand why that is! Great (complimentary!) food and beverages, clean comfortable seats, generous luggage policies, and impressive customer service. The crew on our flight represented 19 different countries and spoke a total of 19 different different languages. The woman ahead of me was very unpleasant about her screen not working, and every attendant she spoke to was infinitely polite and pleasant. They tried to reset her screen, and eventually found an empty seat and moved her to first class!"
Cons: "Only that I can't take an Emirates airbus for all of my flights! I was detained for awhile during boarding because I was chosen to have my carry-on bag checked, and it took awhile because I had filled a water bottle after passing through security and it took some discussion before being approved (my husband didn't know where I was and had already boarded and was worried)."
Pros: "The staff was nice, pleasant and attentive!"
Cons: "Loved everything!"
Pros: "The attendants are friendly, helpful and responded to my needs graciously. I also love the uniforms, especially the hats. The food was decent and was offered at appropriate intervals. I like the plane too."
Cons: "I had reserved an aisle seat by phone but at the airport I was assigned a window seat. No problem---the attendants were helpful and a nice man changed seats with me. I had difficulty with the headset, couldn't get it comfortable and had difficulty adjusting the volume. No big problem considering how good the service was in general. I didn't like a 6 hour wait at Kennedy on my flight to Milan which was dreadfully late."
Pros: "Everything was efficient and fast. The entire staff was friendly and helpful."
Pros: "Huge amount of leg room in economy. Great in flight entertainment. Accommodative flight attendants and enough space in the back of the double decker Airbus to stretch out throughout the flight A++"
Cons: "Boarding was a little sloppy and I think they over fed me!"
Pros: "Emirates defines economy class .. No one else comes close"
Pros: "There was absolutely nothing bet I can say about my Emirates flight experience. Absolutely amazing service, staff, food, entertainment, punctuality..."
Pros: "My Emirates flight was great, superb and amazing. I recommend all traveling to Milan or any destination of Emirates to fly with them. The A380 is one of the greatest aircrafts I've taken. P"
Cons: "The boarding in Italy was not the best but I made it home safe"
Cons: "Terrible flight Terrible food Terrible announcements Religious versus from koran Added 500 dollars tax to our fee"

Cons: "All good."
Pros: "Great crew. Entertainment options were good."
Cons: "Should add weather/radar to the flight tracker"
Cons: "Snacks, and drinks"
Pros: "Social distanced seating"
Cons: "I dont know WHY Delta changed my flight with ALIITALIA, but, DON'T DO IT DELTA. The check in process took an hour, not talking about the line, the ACTUAL checkin at the counter. I couldn't complete my web checkin at the AliItalia web site. Landed in JFK, still sucks as an airport, nobody helps, nobody explains anything, very poor signs and instructions, Global Entry kiosk are hard to spot. My connection ticket didn't have the TSA/PRECHECK legend, went to AliItalia counter, the lady at AliItalia barely said anything when I asked for help with that, her immediate answer was to disengage and sent me to another terminal "to talk to Delta". She didn't explain or didn't want to give an explanation until I started to act as an already 9hr30min flight frustrated customer in a very old, very poor plane with poor food service. Again, I bought an over $1,000 ticket with DELTA, NOT ALIITALIA, if Delta send people with their "partners" at least make sure that they are taken care of properly."
Pros: "Very uncomfortable seats and careless crew"
Cons: "The worst food and service ever. Very disappointed"
Pros: "the “salad” lunch before landing was excellent"

Pros: "The movies were good on the plane."
Cons: "Everything! I was given a wheelchair, wheeled to a spot and told to stay there. I waited over an hour. I couldn’t get thru customs and security alone and I had to ask a non employee to help me the whole time, I was then yelled at by an employee because they didn’t think I was handicapped at the gate"

Cons: "Quality of food!"
Pros: "Crew was friendly"
Cons: "Food was not good"
Cons: "They could improve the boarding process."
Pros: "The seat was horribly crunched, especially for the 6'4" guy sitting next to me"

Pros: "Seats were comfy movie was great"
Pros: "Pre-Boarding was very good"
Cons: "Meal service and trash pickup was poor. When meals were served, within 15 minutes food tray pickup was rushed making me feel like I had to cram the food down my throat. I did not and there was no further trash pickup for several hours. I initiated the attendant lamp and no crew responded."
Cons: "Better screens for in-flight movies. More legroom or upgrade options."

Pros: "Microphone in seat 31 E (isle seat) did not work. It has a short in it."
Pros: "The plane had more leg room and felt less confined because of higher ceilings."
Cons: "The 2 bathrooms in the rear are VERY narrow. I'm average size and barely fit. Also, the waiting area in terminal 3 at LAX is very crowded and noisy and the options for charging portable devices is minimal. I will definitely avoid Delta if I have to go through LAX."
Cons: "Very cramped for overseas flight Coffee is never hot, never served in timely fashion"
Pros: "Excellent support from all the Delta associaties"
Cons: "Nice pillows, eye covers"

Pros: "Seat 2G Orderly boarding and plane clean"
Cons: "Asked to have all the food (appetizer, main course, etc) served together , as they advertise, but was told that service wasn't available. Ordered dinner, was almost as tasty as a Stouffers meal (it was some type of glop of lamb). 7 hours into flight the menu advertised a warm chocolate chip cookie, asked for one was told they THOUGHT they were out, came back about an hour later said the found one, but it wasn't warm, so I passed (not a real fan of eating food they found) About 8 hours into flight , the attendant said out of the blue that they were sorry about not providing the meal all together as requested, but that the other attendant didn't know they offered that service."
Pros: "All good"
Pros: "Coldest flight I’ve ever taken. Not sure why I paid $60 to fly in comfort when I had to endure the arctic temperatures. Free WiFi never worked once either."

Cons: "missed flight bc of delay with first flight. jad to wait 5 hours at lax"

Pros: "Very new plane arrived on time no problems"
Cons: "Nothing everything was great"
Cons: "Missed connection"
Pros: "The crew was very nice as usual. A bit too many announcements that ran a bit too long. Other than that great folks."
Cons: "No water on the plane so no coffee and no running water in the bathrooms. They did well trying to accommodate but between that and a calibration issue in the cockpit that had us running late it was not the best delta flight I've been on."
Pros: "Clean plane, good service. on time departure, early arrival."
Cons: "I did not like the way the plane was boarded- people could not get into their seats because others blocked the aisles - so chaotic. Passengers were not being rude to one another, it was simply that the process is poor. Could the zones instead reflect both location of seat and area of plane, so that those with window seats at the back board first, then middle seats, then aisle? That way if aisle seats fill first, seated people are not stepping back into the aisle to accommodate others needing to get a seat in that row, while everyone on the gang way must wait for the aisle to clear."
Pros: "What they offer is OK."
Pros: "The crew positive attitude"
Cons: "We understand the COVID-19 crisis but a drink on board other than water will not have bid cost impact on Air Canada, for instance juice or cola,... Also, access on internet on board is now payable -$25 for the flight is exaggerated, it should be free knowing the limited number of passengers on board"
Pros: "We had a “light” fare which didn’t include checked bags, but airline let us check our carryon bags for free"
Pros: "Priority boarding for families was easy."
Cons: "The tv monitors didn’t work great. The touch screens reacted very slowly, causing a lot of annoyance. My husbands didn’t work at all."

Cons: "The food"
Pros: "Seat 16 B was great"
Pros: "Comfortable seats, pleasant service"

Pros: "I fly constantly -This was my first time on Luftansa & this is my go to airline from now on. I was flying coach & I felt like I was in first class. (Although nothing beats first class international"
Cons: "Ease and concenience"
Pros: "Crew members are very friendly."
Cons: "they called for boarding and all the signs said the flight was boarding and yet we stood there for a good 20 minutes before they actually started boarding the flight, but other than that, flight and crew were great!"

Pros: "The crew was very welcoming and attentive."
Cons: "That the price of the ticket dropped from when I originally purchased it by $500 and when I called for a refund of the difference I was told it could not be done. I also didn't like that we had to pay an additional cost for a seat selection. Selecting seats should be included."

Pros: "Clean and comfortable aircraft."
Pros: "Food and movies on board were good"
Cons: "Our flight was 3 hrs delayed so ended up missing our next flight. Also they said there would be someone outside the gate when we landed to help us figure out another flight if we were missing our connection and there was no one there. Had to go find a customer service desk. They did put us up in a hotel for the night but after 3 weeks abroad we were really looking forward to getting home. Also the landing was very rocky. I felt sea sick and a lady behind me was actually throwing up it was so rough."
Pros: "Great crew and service; food was good. On time departure and early arrival."
Pros: "Staff were polite"
Cons: "The seating space is horrendous, I am 5 ft 8 and felt like I was sitting with my knees at my chest, horrible horrible seating"
Pros: "Salimos a tiempo . El business es muy confortable"
Cons: "La comida horrible . No se limpian los baños"
Cons: "Keep the temperature at a more reasonable level. Blankets + two layers of clothing was definitely not enough."
Cons: "A little bit chaotic when they loaded two planes at the same time in a very tight space in Amsterdsm but this was most likey an airport soecific design issue and not a KLM issue. The flight was as good as can be expected fir an international flight. The staff was great"
Pros: "The crew."
Cons: "The time between flights."
Cons: "Flight got cancelled"
Pros: "The flight crew was so friendly and the food was really good."
Cons: "This return flight was much better than the flight going to Amsterdam. I believe the biggest factor was the type of aircraft. The old 747 just didn't meet expectations. The newer 777 on the way back was much more comfortable, with better amenities."
Cons: "We had 4 hour delay causing a stop over at 3am. So yeah"

Pros: "Smooth and faster than expected trip. I felt free to get up and walk around on this long flight. Food was good. I sat in seat with extra leg room for the first time and it was worth it"
Cons: "At the check in they made me pay 50€ for my luggage. This is really upsetting because from Houston to Venice they didn't make me pay. Either the website wasn't transparent or the lady at the desk made a mistake. Very upsetting, one luggage should be included."
Pros: "Good comfortable seat with extra leg room. Pleasant crew."
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: "Light snack and complementary wine"
Pros: "Crew was awesome"
Pros: "I slept pretty much the whole time"
Pros: "Arrived early!"
Cons: "Boarding seemed disorganized."

Pros: "Short flight with good communication."
Cons: "Nil to complain."
Pros: "Booked extra room seat which gave me good room for seating"
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: "Airlines issue"
Cons: "Profiling certain customers"
Cons: "At some point the luggage was lost. here."
Cons: "Dutch sub titels would be nice."
Pros: "Flight crew was pleasant and attentive. Seats were comfortable for economy as well. We were allowed to check in extra baggage for free at check in which really helped since we would be catching a connecting flight in Amsterdam"
Pros: "That we didn’t crash"
Cons: "Everything! The crew was rude, no entertainment whatsoever, late boarding, late departure and bad experience with the check in process both in app and on website."
Cons: "Not only was there free food but they tried to sell you a bunch of stuff. Not a moments piece."
Cons: "Flight from Amsterdam was 2 hours late. Caused me to miss connection on train from London to Leeds which then cost me 124 pounds to rebook. No information was forthcoming at all at the airport and there were 3 different departure times given. Absolute chaos. The airline is a joke"
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!"
Pros: "The crew were really helpful since I am a short person in putting my luggage away in the overhead compartment and attentive to everyone's needs. I am a fussy eater and don't really like airplane food but the food was actually really nice. We was given plenty of snacks and drinks in between meals as well. There was plenty of programmes to choose from to keep me entertained."
Cons: "The seats in economy were a little too small for a 12 hour flight"
Pros: "Flight was efficient enough and staff were friendly."
Cons: "It was delayed quite a bit and more on-time updates would have been appeciated."
Cons: "The fact that there are different airline carriers for one flight is hard. In my second flight they made me check a bag which was considered a carry on during my first flight"
Pros: "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: "Good flight, we got a nice snack despite it being a short flight, the staff was great."
Pros: "It's the best flight I could get for such a low price. But don't expect to to get the best and newest planes around but it's still overall a good experience."
Cons: "Quite bummed the plane didn't have wifi / USB"
Pros: "leg room economy compared to KLM"
Cons: "full flight, no upgrade possible"
Pros: "I ended up getting home with less delay than originally predicted. I guess that's a good thing Also delta customer service was super polite and trying to help when I called"
Cons: "Delay again... seems to be pretty frequent on KLM flights at least on the ones I flew with in the past 4 years... this time it was 3hours wait due to a technical issue... no alternative flight option and we ended up getting a very old plane as a replacement. In addition people at info terminals are disorganized and not kind at all.."
Pros: "Food was relatively good"
Cons: "We had ourtrip from San Francisco to Amsterdam which is one of the longest flights ever, andthe entertainment system wasnt working, we kept on telling them several times but nothing happened and at the end they wereeven avoiding us. By the end of the trip when we were approaching Ams, a hostess came and she gave us a $25 dollar discountvoucher to be used in our next trip, this is totally not acceptable!"
Pros: "Flights left on time, arrived ahead of time. Seats comfortable. Baggage arrived quickly. No charge for wine/beer, although I do not imbibe when flying long distance. Food ok for airline food."
Cons: "Unable to pick seats in advance,, were assigned seats that did not recline for 11 hour flight. One bathroom not functioning. Very limited movie choices for inflight entertainment. Seat belts much shorter than other airlines, so very confining, unable to loosen to relax in any position other than sitting straight in seat. In Rome had to check in & go through security at Terminal 5 then get bussed to Terminal 3. Only airport where we had to take out all electronics, including converter plugs, headphones, etc, place in a flimsy clear plastic bag ( that broke ) to go through security. Line to check bags pretty slow for number of passengers. Glad we had plenty of time."
Cons: "My family of five spent a lovely week in Sardinia. Our return flight took us through Rome. We were boarded an hour ahead of departure from Rome for our 10+ hour flight, only to be held on the ground for a one hour delay. Barring equipment malfunction, this is a totally unacceptable way to treat people. Be assured that I will avoid Rome in the future if at all possible. I trust that Rome nor Italy need my tourist dollars and there are many lovely other places to spend them. Exceedingly disappointed, Pam Just"
Pros: "During my first flight from East Midlands England to Amsterdam I lost my baggage by another airlines and the KLM crew was very dedicated and supportive until they found it and check in for me... Many thanks and I wouldn't forget it."
Pros: "I've flown SAS a few times and have always been favorably impressed with the service. On this flight we booked the "bare bones" fare and paid extra for checked bags and extra-legroom seats. The overall cost was still better than most other airlines."
Cons: "Terrible airline, they charge for everything, but don’t give the client good service. I was yelled by a worker because I was having difficulties scanning my bag at the self-scanning-and-uploading-your-luggage that you pay $100 dollars extra Per bag. I don’t like this airline."
Pros: "Crew was business only."
Cons: "More engaged crew. The"
Pros: "Terrible coordination between SAS and United Airlines. Two bags missing, could not find boarding pass of baby, despite us showing them on the SAS website their check in details!"
Cons: "Not losing our bags and delaying our boarding massively despite us having completed information in advance on SAS website. United Airlines inability to assign seating all the way through, throwing their hands in the air and blaming SAS, while SAS did exactly the same thing about United."
Pros: "Food was good and entertainment system was full of plenty of options to help pass the time"
Cons: "Seat got hard and so little leg room."
Cons: "Difficult to find check in at Copenhagen airport"
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "When people lean their seats back their heads end up in your face and you are forced to lean your seat back to make separation from passenger in front of you"
Cons: "There was no food or entertainment offered."
Cons: "My luggage was lost and still not found"
Pros: "Legroom was sufficient on this leg because I paid an extra $80 for an exit row."
Cons: "Having to pay extra for normal legroom"
Pros: "I liked that it was available for me to return to Amsterdam in such late notice. Got there quickly and even earlier (10 mins) then expected."
Cons: "No on offered me anything to drink or a snack the entire flight or even a hand towel but others in front and behind me were receiving them. I didnt even feel acknowledged during the flight. Even though the tine was good, the price was way too high but since I was desperate I paid it."
Pros: "Nice service"
Pros: "Prompt boarding, early departure and early arrival."
Cons: "The take it or leave it attitude of the cabin crew (amazingly casual) and SAS’s persistence in having two standards of service in the one cabin - free food & drink up front, however only tea & coffee or a cup of water up the back and you can pay for the rest!"
Pros: "Everything was nice and smooth. Nice comfort and smooth flight, arriving slightly before the time"
Cons: "Pay for a coke?"
Pros: "The food and entertainment on board is great. I was very pleased with how they organized the checking of bags and the fact I picked it up at my final destination without any issues and right on time."
Cons: "Some of the staff at the check in desks can be very rude. Also, on my initial flight, they closed the check-in early and left many of us stranded without knowing who to talk to and how to manage to get on the plane. When someone from SAS finally came, I was told I would be escorted through security and most into the plane but then the "manager" or whoever was in charge denied it. The plane did not leave for another our and instead of arguing with the costumers they could have just helped us get on the plane. It was unfair of them to close the check in desks early and on top of that to catch a plane the next day they wanted to charge and exorbitant fee. I Wii never fly SAS again."
Pros: "Alot of room for legs, good hp service"
Cons: "No snack with beverage before dinner, no choice of food , On connecting flight Kopenhagen-Krakow only Coffee/tea, no snack again, for passenger going over see very poor !!!!"
Cons: "Tried to call sas , no phone answered after 730 in Copenhagen, forced to buy my own ticket to leave early am as their incompetent sas transfer desk couldn’t find me a flight in am yet I was able on kayak.com. They refused to pay for it."
Pros: "Efficient processing of passengers onto aircraft."

Pros: "Nice guy behind the counter."
Cons: "At self check-in, we received a message that we had been placed on standby and that our seats were no longer guaranteed (for the SECOND time this trip with no explanation despite our having purchased our tickets quite some time ago). We were directed to the gate for questions. No one manned the gate until right before boarding. We spent the entire time in a panic trying to figure out how else we could get to our destination in time for a wedding. When we finally talked to someone at the counter, he said this was just normal procedure to be able to shuffle seats. This is not normal. I have flown with many airlines, and I cannot imagine it is ever "normal" policy to tell people they have been downgraded to standby until just before the flight. So much anxiety. Also, the flight was delayed, and the crew had no communication about gates or any other information (within their OWN AIRLINE) for those with connecting flights."
Pros: "Landing was very smooth"
Cons: "No staff at the gate until fifteen minutes after start of boarding. Flight was delayed, but gate staff were not forthcoming with details."
Cons: "TV's on our whole row did not work for the entire flight. Reading lamp was burned out. It would have been tolerable for a domestic flight but these amenities are needed and appreciated on a six hour flight!"
Pros: "So far best flight I've ever experienced ! I was traveling to Europe and both ways I was pleasantly surprised, planes were on time , super nice crew and great food , Way to go SAS !!!"
Pros: "Great flight all went well,"
Cons: "no vegetarian food I am always told should have ordered at booking but this option is always made obscure, difficult or impossible too cramped and plain full to capacity"
Pros: "Nothing , it was terrible flight ."
Cons: "I bought full price ticket, not STAND BY SAS DIDN'T LET CHECK IN MY FLIGHT FROM RIGA to SAN DIEGO. So I have problem everywhere . In Oslo I was waiting for my seat more than one hours. I very often was SAS, it was good, but never ever I will use this company again."
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."
Cons: "Because the airport was under construction, the area to wait to board was very barren and without bathrooms. We had to take a very crowded bus to the airplane."
Pros: "flight was on time"
Cons: "Packed flight. No food available ( even for purchase) in economy"
Cons: "The flight didn't even exist because of a strike and neither kayak nor SAS informed us the flight was canceled, so we found out after we got to the airport."
Cons: "The flight didn't even exist because of a strike and neither kayak nor SAS informed us the flight was canceled, so we found out after we got to the airport."
Cons: "Flight was cancelled, only indication i got before going to airport was from Kayak"
Cons: "Our flight TO Rome via Copenhagen was canceled and some of our party needed to find overnight accommodations in Chicago."
Cons: "This is not SAS's problem, but it was not very pleasant to have to board the plane by steps in the pouring rain. Got through it, though!"
Pros: "Excellent customer service and very clean."
Cons: "Hou toch godverdomme op met vliegtuigje spelen, verrekt stelletje incompetente hufters. Ik moest 3x in een lange klere rij staan bij SAS op Schiphol omdat we telkens verkeerd werden ingelicht door clueless SAS employees."
Pros: "I slept for most of the flight, and had space to lie down. I skipped the dinner, and the stewardesses did not wake me up at all, inspite of their serving most people on board. When I woke up close to landing, I asked for a cup of coffee, which the stewardesses made for me promptly. The flight was smooth, and the good night's rest was refreshing."
Pros: "Seating on the older plane was larger and not as closely jammed together"
Cons: "I had a screaming 2 year old child in the seat next to me and her mother either could not or would not control him. It was the flight from hell ..............."
Pros: "Crew was OK"
Cons: "Check in Process in Milan Malpensa was chaotic at best! Did not have a good back up plan in place when the plane coming to Malpensa did not come due to maintenance."
Cons: "Flight was canceled, waited around for two hours with little to no information, before finally getting booked on a flight the next day. I lost 24 hours of my trip."
Pros: "I enjoyed my flight, the flight attendants were extremely nice and answered any questions I had. The pilots did a fantastic job getting me to my destination safely. Boarding and getting off the plane went smoothly. I will use this site again for my next flight 5 star service"
Cons: "I was a little disappointing as to how much it costs to upgrade your seat, seeing that there were very few people in 1st class and business class I would have liked to upgrade for a more comfortable trip, but $400-600 is way too much to pay for an already expensive trip."
