"Same comment as before. Should not be part of skyteam. Alitlia is way below standard for that group of stellar airlines. Staff is unfriendly, delivers poor service and do not make you feel welcome on board. Food is good. Only water not other drinks available. No garbage college during flight or before landing. Entertaining is so so and the bathrooms are dirty."
"It took an hour for our luggage to arrive on the carousel. Everything else was fine. But I’ve never had to wait so long for my luggage. At the end of a very long travel day it was not what I would have hoped for."
Pros: "The crew was nice"
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: "Flight and crew were wonderful. Perfectly smooth landing!"
Cons: "I really wonder about the boarding procedure... isn't "back to front" more efficient? What is this Comfort +, Main Cabin 1, Main Cabin 2, Basic thing? Is that supposed to make you feel better because you paid for a seat selection?!"
Cons: "The worst experience ever. The head flight attendant provided the worst customer experience ever. She should be terminated immediately."

Pros: "Crew was friendly"

Cons: "The customs and border inspection station in Atlanta is an absolute disaster."
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."

Cons: "Confort no good very tight seats Movies hard to understand Announcements hard to hear"
Cons: "Even vegetarian Hindu food was ordered over the phone. We're presented non veg food. When asked about the non veg food we were told that we dint order. Lie right away. Alitalia members showed worst and discrimination based behavior. Very rude. Won't travel on Alitalia in future"

Pros: "The plane was newer and the flight itself was good"
Cons: "Poor service onboard. Flight attendants showed little care and were curt. Ordered halal meal but were given vegetarian. It was bland and tasteless. My wife ordered drinks that never came. The armrests were stationary adding to the discomfort. Unfortunate how the international service experience is so much worse than domestic."
Cons: "A bit warm on the plane and late taking off."
Pros: "At the counter the staff is friendly, nice."
Cons: "There is no one to organize the lines to the self check in on the computers, basically a mess, nobody knows how many lines are there."
Cons: "Not being to check our tickets on line"
Cons: "About 7 of 8 crew staff was ladies in their 60’s. Grumpy old women. In case of emergency I would help to help them instead of crew members helping me off the plane."
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."
Cons: "4 hour layover in ATL too long"
Cons: "Bags never arrived at the listed baggage claim. After 45 min, I saw bags on a different claim station and I notified everyone standing around. BUT, I filed a claim with Delta and was immediately given 2500 miles, as guaranteed!"
Cons: "Delayed take off and waited for the bridgr"
Pros: "Cabin crew was good."
Cons: "This flight had at least 5 gate changes in three different terminals. We had serious jet lag and did not need to go roaming all over the Atlanta airport."
Cons: "The person next to me was taking up half of my seat."
Pros: "That I was able to sit next to my husband"
Cons: "Everything else."
Pros: "I loved being able to watch two movies on my flight! Who has the time for t hat anymore? It makes the hours fly by!"
Cons: "Traveling in general isn't as comfy as it once was, but Delta seems to have been able to make the best of it. Crew friendly and helpful, drinks rolled out frequently, entertainment available. I cannot complain about a thing."
Pros: "Delta Studio"
Cons: "Food choices were not appetizing."
Pros: "Nothing more than expected."
Cons: "Food could be improved."
Cons: "It was late and i missed my next flight"
Pros: "It was wonderful to have a non-stop from Rome to Atlanta. The flight was comfortable and punctual. The in-flight entertainment was very good and helped pass the long flight."
Cons: "I liked the complimentary beverage service and many meal and snack interludes, although the food was sub par, especially the snack. I don't know how you can mess up crackers, but they were terrible, even slathered with the accompanying marinara. Also not sure that I ever met a shortbread cookie I didn't like until this trip; why lace it with artificial strawberry flavor?"
Pros: "They ran out of food on the plane"
Pros: "Hospitable crew"
Cons: "Na, nothing special"
Pros: "No compensation"
Pros: "2 seats by windows, rather than 3, and the roominess plus ease of using the media tv screen and options. the beverage options and food options were plentiful as well as good quality."
Cons: "I'm Sky Priority and the gate agents were not enforcing zones. They called Diamond and everyone walked in. I went in and saw zone 3 in the line"
Pros: "The plane was new and comfortable, the flight attendants were friendly and wonderful and the meal was pretty good but the abundance of snacks and drinks made a 9-hour flight very tolerable. I'd definitely fly Delta to Italy again."
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: "The crew was cranky at the beginning of the flight."
Cons: "More space!"
Cons: "Frankfurt airport is too big. Allowing only an hour for a connecting flight is not enough time. I would never do that again especially if your with a handicapped person"
Cons: "I am a very experienced international traveler with approximately 25 countries visited and many of them multiple times. This flight set my new benchmark for a international coach flight. Staff were professional, friendly and accommodating. Great leg room and entertainment. Even the in flight meal and snacks were good. I was not looking forward to my domestic connection with Delta. Unfortunately, Delta met my anticipated expectation. US based carriers could learn a lot from Lufthansa."
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."
Pros: "Booked a flight to Italy in economy section and was worried that it would be a difficult and uncomfortable flight. However it exceeded my expectations and never felt that I was in the economy section. They provided excellent service and made sure you were comfortable and attended to. Would recommend"
Cons: "The food"
Pros: "The crew is always pleasant and friendly. The in-flight entertainment is great and the food is good too."
Cons: "The Lufthansa rep at the Rome airport did not try to accommodate me when I asked to change my flight. My daughter was flying on a later flight and in order to travel together I asked if there was any way one of us could switch. Before even looking she said NO, there is no way. I know that it can be"
Pros: "The crew was amazingly friendly, efficient, and hardworking."
Cons: "After 7 hours, the seat became very uncomfortable. Not just a Lufthansa issue."
Pros: "Amazing crew. Took care of people in every possible way and were concerned about their comfort. The food and drinks were above and beyond. Other airline CEO’s should fly Lufthansa and find out what they need to do to impress their customers. side pockets beneath the windows are great to have."
Cons: "The only thing I can say is the seating on a long flight needs a little more room. When the person in front lets their seat back it gets to be a little cramped."
Cons: "My luggage did not make it"
Pros: "Flight crew was excellent. Top notch in customer service. They had a very difficult lady constantly wanting help with meals and food issues, and they were very professional and efficient."
Cons: "Check in was late in Rome. Arrived at 5am for a 8:30 flight, and they would not check us in until 6 am. Don’t understand the “arrive 3 hrs prior” when this happens."
Pros: "Service was great. Seats were spacious and comfortable. Smooth plane ride."
Pros: "Comfortable seats, pleasant service"
Pros: "Hate today but they do it better thanUS airlines."
Cons: "The lines in Frankfurt were horrible. It’s the airports fault though, not the airlines. We almost missed our connection."

Cons: "Boarded late, departed late, and they made my boyfriend check his standard sized carry on bag at the gate."
Pros: "Leg room"
Cons: "No internet"
Pros: "Entertainment is great. Great selection of shows and music"
Cons: "The Frankfurt airport is an embarrassment to Germany. Taking buses to your plane, going up and down stairs to depart or board a plane is archaic. Therefore most Lufthansa flights in and out of this main hub are delayed. There should be some rule that meals will not be served to customers who have their seat reclined. The poor person behind them has no comfortable way to eat."
Pros: "Very nice airline! Hundreds of movies to choose from, nice hot meals served twice on international flight with top end, complimentary alcoholic beverages. Little bassinets for babies to sleep in."
Cons: "Very tight space in economy seats"
Pros: "nice sevice"
Cons: "I asked a bald headed steward for an additional chocolate and he said he was saving for first class. come on poor customer service"
Cons: "I didn't like going downstairs to the bathroom. I'm sure there is a good reason why we did it. Also, the seats are too close together for a trip of that length of time."
Pros: "Everything overall"
Cons: "Slight delay"
Pros: "Plane confitions, food. Srvice"
Cons: "Seats are still uncomfortable le on Economy class."
Cons: "Food was just ok"
Pros: "The cabin crew on our Munich to Denver leg was absolutely the best ever!"
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!"
Cons: "My passport was stolen on the overnight train I took to get to the airport. It wasn't until I was off of the train that I went to grab my passport and credit card and realized my tiny little purse was gone. I had to rush to the US Embassy, get a new passport, and then rush back to the airport. I didn't arrive until 40 minutes after my flight had left and I was a nervous wreck. Unfortunately Lufthansa staff could not care less. The guy at the ticket counter even looked at my new urgent passport that had the issue date listed as today, so clearly this all had just happened as it was only 10:50am still. What did Lufthansa do? Well they told me if I wanted to fly out the same day, I would have to pay 2700 Euro additional! My jaw dropped and then he said I could fly out tomorrow for an additional 675 Euro instead. I was still in shock as I felt like I had just been taken advantage of with my stolen passport and credit card and now it's happening again. I asked if there was any way he could find something cheaper and he said that I paid so cheap for this flight that I would need to speak with the agency I booked with to help me out more and then he dismissed me. Let me have you know that I booked this fare during an amazing sale that Lufthansa was having and I booked it directly through their website and now it was being held against me. There was no offer to pay something like a $200 change your flight fee. Instead he let that plane leave with an empty seat because I didn't have the 2700 Euro to pay him. Here I was, alone, nervous, in a foreign country, and I had to get my thoughts together the best I could and I immediately started looking up my own flights. I ended up having to book a flight with a different company and just forfeiting any kind of credit that Lufthansa would have applied to their overly exorbitant priced flights. Good job Lufthansa for being the worst customer care service I have ever experienced... and I have flown over 20 airlines and over 100 flights."
Pros: "I have the option to have a special meal. (vegan)"
Cons: "I have to ask for my special meal in advance."
Pros: "No entertailment because of the short flight, but free beer or wine was nice and a sandwich!"
Cons: "Our flight was scheduled to leave at 7:00 a.m. We arrived at the airport at 4:00 a.m. to check in. When we tried to check in the lady told us our reservation was canceled. Luckily an airport employee worked his magic and had us added back onto that flight."
Pros: "Flight was on time. They served a light snack in spite of being a very short flight."
Cons: "I liked everything."
Pros: "Late flight with no prior notification. Caused us to miss our connection."
Cons: "Lufthansa cancelled our return flight from Rome two days ahead of departure. Spent the whole day trying to contact them by calling from Rome on American phone which ended up costing over $100, eight times the.l hold was over an hour after which Lufthansa just hanged up. Here is German "reliability, responsibility, and organization" in action!"
Pros: "Great service, great friendly crew and great food!"
Pros: "On time, clean, helpful"
Cons: "Not enough leg room"
Pros: "Quick flight, efficient boarding."
Cons: "Seats weren't very comfortable, but it was a short flight. Our layover was too short and our passport verification process almost made us miss our flight."
Cons: "Space between seats and leg room. Very compact for an international flight."
Pros: "Comfortable, price, staff, on time,food/drinks, entertainment..."
Cons: "Traveled with elderly father...all great until Boston Logan Airport. Wheel chairs supposedly went to wring gate. 5 or 6 needed chairs. Waited min of 10-15 minutes standing!!! My father requested to use bathroom... Boston Lufthansa staff refused to let him step back in plane leaving him standing and very uncomfortable!!! Staff on plane and others applauded at how poorly handled this was. Then finally got chair.. At end of ramp saw a min of 4 chairs and 3 people doing nothing... Still had 4 or 5 people waiting for assistance. Our assistant did not speak English... Or minimal... I told him where we needed to go for scheduled bus he did not listen... Dropping my Dad a significant distance from where I told him... He refused to take him there. Other wheel chair person was dropped there.. So not out of range... But found out they were dropped at wrong stop too!!! However... I believed that most was Logan's fault... But the lack of compassion on Boston Lufthansa was very upsetting to all... But .. Still believe Lufthansa is a wonderful airline and I will in time try to forgive that agent."
Pros: "Everything was fine on this flight."
Cons: "The connecting flight had MUTLIPLE issues!!!"
Pros: "the boarding went very smoothly. We arrived at our destination on time."
Cons: "I felt quite thirsty and didn't get anything to drink on the short flight. Most of the flight I slept so I'm not sure if I just missed the serving of a drink. I almost was not able to fit our carry on luggage since it only fit in the center bins which were almost all full. There was no entertainment system."
Cons: "Flight repeatedly delayed and then cancelled due to United technical issues. Was rebooked on another carrier, but United couldn't get our baggage back to us in time to make that flight thanks to the absolute circus that ensued at the gate. 9:55am flight turns into a night at the airport hotel with vouchers that would only allow us to eat from the horrible buffett (ordering off the hotel menu was not covered). Put on same flight the follow day. Wait for it.... Delayed again (no weather). Would never have booked a flight with United in the first place due to similar issues in the past , but got duped when I booked this Luftansa flight and found out after the fact that it was operated by United. Never again, again."
Pros: "The staff was attentive and concerned when my husband became a little dehydrated on board. They brought him fruit and water and came back to check on him."
Cons: "App is terrible. Messed up our selected seats. Airline did not offer to help change our seats or provide any other accommodation. My traveling companions are over 6 feet tall and were very uncomfortable."
Pros: "Generally a smooth flight. My geographically knowledgeable friend pointing out towns, rivers, forests and places we visited in 2012 as we moved across Italy, the Swiss Alps and Germany. Delightful."
Pros: "Seating was good and reasonably comfortable."
Cons: "However the food was 99% sugar in the form of cookies and other over processed food. The entertainment was so disappointing with no back of the chair screen that if I could give it a 0 rating I would."
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"
Cons: "Wifi on klm"
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: "Half the screens were not working - crew were made aware but nothing was done. Vegetarian choices were poor to non-existent ; I witnessed crew insist to a passenger that there were no vegetarian options! They finally cobbled something together for him but not a pleasant experience"
Pros: "Food and service"
Cons: "Working wifi would be good. Better A/C. More comfortable seats"
Pros: "Very friendly crew and on time with no problems."
Pros: "The flight crew was so friendly and the food was really good."
Cons: "They left my bag off the plane. Ridiculous."
Cons: "Flight on time would have been good when you have a late evening arrival. Long wait for luggage at Birmingham airport."
Pros: "Food, entertainment and crew was exceptionally friendly."
Cons: "Seats not great for such a long flight."
Pros: "KLM was a great experience compared to Airitalia. The food was good, the flight attendants were very helpful."
Pros: "Seat space a bit tight . I should have upgraded to more leg room . Next time!"
Pros: "The earphones for out two seats only worked intermittently, but the Purser, Lee-Ann handled it professionally and pleasantly. That was the only disappointment in an otherwise pleasant flight"
Cons: "The earphones could have worked!"
Pros: "Quick flight"
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"
Pros: "Crew was in a festive mood, the meal was unexpectedly delicious"
Cons: "Seats ok, but could be more comfy"
Pros: "Light snack and complementary wine"
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"
Cons: "old screens and entertainment system leg room to small"
Pros: "Crew was awesome"
Pros: "Very friendly and helpful crew."
Pros: "Easy flight; loved the crew and their friendly customer service. Great food, kept everyone hydrated and fed."
Cons: "The movie options, as well as music and TV options were limited. There were no electrical outlets."
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: "Travel on Crostian Airlines did not pappen. KLM flight to Munich was cancelled and I was rescheduled on Air Setbia to Belgrade, the Split."
Cons: "That it didn’t happen."
Cons: "Our two hour connection in Paris became 30 minutes because Air France was late in leaving Washington. So our luggage didn't make to to KLM to Amsterdam. My poor rating was because the luggage handling was really poor. Lots of flights from Paris to Amsterdam (almost hourly), but my bag showed up 12 hours later. My wife's bag took 36 hours. And yes, we checked in together. There were lots of confusing messages"
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: "Unaccompanied minor flying to Lisbon overnight. Bag was lost. No real effort to assist. Bags of unaccompanied minor should be treated with priority."
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: "Lovely staff, good food, great movies."
Cons: "They stole my money"
Pros: "Everything. A truly faultless experience!"
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: "On time."
Cons: "No negative"
Cons: "Departure 40 mins late. I took this flight 2 weeks ago and it was also delayed."
Cons: "KLM had bumped us to a later flight for no reason and again we had to call with a long wait to get our original connection restored, However, we did not get boarding passes during checking in Europe and thus had to go outside security in Detroit to the main check-in gate and wait 30 minutes to get the error resolved. Then it was back thorough security and a rush to the gate to get there in time to board. Lost our original seat assignment and wound up in the last row at the tail of the plane. Extremely poor coordination between KLM and Delta who operated the flight."
Pros: "The staff were friendly and all smiles. Seats were comfortable and we had a quick, smooth flight from Edinburgh to Amsterdam. The breakfast supplied was an egg and mayonnaise sandwich plus a drink, which seemed about right and very Dutch in character."
Cons: "It was rainy and necessary to walk outside to access the plane; the staff should give their customers a heads-up so that jackets can be donned. Additionally, the check-in queue seemed rather sluggish."
Pros: "Fortunately, the plane was not full, so people could spread out a bit to create extra room. The food was really good! (surprisingly)."
Cons: "KLM's new configuration for this type of plane made the seats even narrower than before. While leg room was reasonable, the 3 abreast seating meant a lot of discomfort, especially in the row right in front of the restroom."
Pros: "staff hospitality, cleanness of the cabin and toilet and punctuality of the flight"
Cons: "lack of meal options"
Pros: "Boarding was very efficient."
Cons: "Limited movie selection. Crew seemed stressed. Gave me wrong meal and then swaped for the right one. I asked for Diet Coke and was given white wine. Food quality was not good."
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: "Good flight, we got a nice snack despite it being a short flight, the staff was great."
Cons: "Flight delayed ... Myself and three other colleagues didn't have our luggage show up from KLM flight from Amsterdam to Brussels...even though all of our luggage was labeled "priority". Once in customer service line, we looked and saw that many of the other passengers on our flight also never received their luggage. We estimated that 20-25% of the people on that flight did not receive their luggage as they were in line with us for the same problem. Hard to understand how so many pieces of luggage could have been overlooked and not loaded on our flight. Obviously there is a huge gap in their quality system to ensure mistakes like this are prevented."
Cons: "I slept didn't have snack offered and no entertainment"
Pros: "Quick and efficient flight. Crew very organized. Great language skills"
Cons: "I wasn't sitting next to my partner and we sat on the Tarmac for 45 minutes after the flight was already delayed by 30 minutes."
Pros: "Leg room. Smiles of the cabin crew."
Cons: "Not enough selection of Electronic Dance Music. Lol!"
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."
Pros: "Amazing crew, fast boarding."
Cons: "Uninspired food. I was served the same meals 30 years ago."
Pros: "food good"
Cons: "techical problems announced AFTER plane was fully boarded, took 1-1/2 hours with no refreshments offered except the water bottles at seat. However, captain did make periodic announcements as to progress of repairs."
Cons: "Flew SAS Plus. Extra seat width and leg room made all the difference versus SAS Go. Money well spent."
Pros: "Crew was very pleasant."
Cons: "There were no announcements at all about the delays! It was confusing and poor service."
Pros: "Crew was business only."
Cons: "More engaged crew. The"
Pros: "New, clean airplane with a friendly and professional crew. It was not as uncomfortable as some of the other airlines I've used, though eight hours in economy is still too much. I chose it in part because of the connection through Copenhagen, which I recommend for an overnight stay. Great city."
Cons: "The chicken something or other on one of the flights was truly disgusting, but the rest of the economy food service was okay."
Pros: "Nice interiors, relatively new airplanes, and very professional staff"
Cons: "Limited food ans beverage selection, and alcohol is served with an additional cost"
Pros: "All good."
Cons: "Gluten free meal was selected and paid for before the flight, but for some reason the crew didn't have the option available for me once on board. Nevertheless, they tried to be their best. More drink's without extra charge. Follow Lufthansa service and all will be grand."
Pros: "Check in at the airport gate was handled professionally."
Cons: "Bought our seats 2 months in advance. One day before flight, saw our assigned seats were changed, someone had our original seats 31G/H, and we were put in 48C/D. Could not get any assistance to correct the situation until we were at the gate and by that time no comparable seats were available. Also, my husband spilled his drink; one of the attendants said he was too busy to help with cleanup. Fortunately, another attendant came over after my husband went to the galley to again ask for assistance."
Pros: "The only thing that saved the flight was a good crew and decent food."
Cons: "My husband uses a wheel chair and a delightful attendant wheeled him and about 20 other passengers to a very well equipped handicap area. There we all stayed until finally we demanded that we be taken to our flight which was supposed to leave in about 10 minutes. When we boarded the plane all the other passengers were already there and I was the last one on. All the overhead bins were taken and I had to put my carry-on under the seat which left me with almost no leg room. By the time we arrived in SFO my thighs and back hurt so much that I was worried maybe I would require medical attention. Which fortunately was not the case. It was luck that I had a bag that would actually fit under the seat."
Cons: "When I booked the flight, it did not say that I was not allowed to check any bags. My wife and I had one each, and it costed us €140 total to bring the luggage. If I had known there was a slightly more expensive ticket that would have allowed us to check a luggage each, I would of course have chosen that. Very poor information provided."
Pros: "Flight left on time, the plane was clean and comfortable, but the staff could do with some additional training."
Cons: "They did not serve coffee in our table, the cabin crew were abrupt, almost rude, and in my opinion they can do better."
Pros: "Fair leg space, kind stewards."
Cons: "It would be nice if they could offer some snacks or something to drink. Seems to be higher quality than low costs, so they could afford to offer that."
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: "Great flight. Wonderful staff. No turbulence!"
Pros: "Flight attendants were very nice. Seemed to have a nice amount of leg room."
Cons: "I didn't like that they tried to sell stuff on the plane."
Pros: "I purchased Plus and found it a good value. My seat on the overseas leg was comfortable -- though it could have reclined better. The food & drink service was conducted as at an elegant restaurant."
Pros: "Will choose SAS again."
Cons: "WiFi didn't work and movie selection could be a bit better. That's all."
Pros: "Very helpful crew. Goes out of the way to be helpful certainly in the transatlantic part of the flights. Entertainment is excellent."
Cons: "Food taste is terrible. They did accommodate us in getting vegetarian diet. However, online means to do this was impossible. Choices were not provided when we tried to do seat selection. In fact the web site gave wrong information that there are no meals offered even for the selection of the transatlantic flights. Toll free number calls were put on hold over an hour without success. Eventually chat worked. In the flight segment within Europe they do not even offer water for free. Charging 3 Euros for a small can of water/soda is a rip off."
Pros: "The flight crew was courteous and professional. The seats were comfortable."
Cons: "The flight came in a little late. However, the plane was nice."
Pros: "Boarding should be done like this on all airlines"
Pros: "The movie selection"
Cons: "To be boarded and wait for more than 45 minutes inside the plane for a second pilot."
Pros: "Late delay and no service from flight staff"
Cons: "We paid $90 per checked bag. When we purchased our tickets we were never given an option to purchase luggage ahead of time, we were under the impression that luggage was included."
Pros: "Good flight attendants and a plus for the early arrival."
Cons: "The lack of lounge access at the airport in Rome (Fiumicino). Not receiving any food/snacks on a three hour flight is quite poor."
Pros: "The crew"
Cons: "The flight was delayed well over an hour. I was unable to check in the night before. I was finally able to check in online the afternoon of the flight, but no seats were left, so had a boarding pass with no seat assignment. Got to the gate and they sent me and about 25 other folks with no seat assignment to wait for a "colleague" who finally appeared after almost everyone else had boarded. I did get a seat, but I was one of the last to board. They ran out of salmon dinners, so the stewardess plopped a chicken dish in front of me--didn't eat since I am vegetarian. The stewardess did give me a free mini bottle of wine, which is normally free on Lufthansa. I am just not all that impressed with SAS. I will try to avoid them in the future."
Cons: "In-flight entertainment did not work, veggie meal I ordered was not there, and when I asked if I could have one of the extra business class meals, I was told no. I further asked if I could just have some chips from the snack basket and that was met with a death glare from the female flight attendant. All in all, the flight attendants were rude and unwilling to accept any ownership in the poor conditions of this 9 hour flight."
Pros: "The crew was lovely"
Cons: "No entertainment or any special difference between business and coach except you get a meal. Seats are the same as economy and the bathrooms are shared. Why bother paying extra?"
Pros: "The flight attendants were good at checking on the needs of the passengers"
Pros: "Quit a lot space for domestic flight"
Cons: "No drinks no food. We pay a lot of money for seat"
Cons: "I asked for a second glass of water and the flight attendant told me I had to buy a bottle. Also, the flight departed one hour late."
Pros: "Flight was short."
Pros: "The entertainment system is among the best of airlines."
Cons: "The Lufthansa representative in Frankfurt made me check one of my bags, when SAS clearly said I was allowed to have one carry-on and one personal item. This was not a Lufthansa flight, but the rude attendant insisted on enforcing Lufthansa rules on an SAS flight and refused to even allow me to voice an objection. I will not fly Lufthansa ever after this. SAS should have its own representatives who understand customer service at all gates."
Pros: "We were in coach and it was comfortable and the food was good. The crew was helpful and pleasant. Entertainment options were great."
Cons: "I have never been on a trans-Atlantic flight before that did not include wine and liquor! Surprising."
Pros: "There was sufficient entertainment and food"
Cons: "Shamelessly disorganized at all departures, the staff was rude, very rude on land and in flight. I will not fly SAS again. I rather pay more."
Pros: "we didn't crash"
Cons: "it was extremely hot in boarding area. when we landed we sat on the tarmac for an hour with no air conditioning and we weren't allowed to use the"
Cons: "The food options need improvements. The portion and items are not tasty or plentiful."
Cons: "That I didn't make it to Chicago the day I planned. My first leg had computer issues in Rome which pushed the flight back 4 hours which then made me miss my connecting flight. Had to stay a night in Copenhagen and fly out at 1540 the next day."
Pros: "Efficiency, confidence, promptness"
Cons: "60euros for the first checked-in bag??? Ridiculous."
Pros: "Good, comfortable plane and friendly crew."
Cons: "The food was mediocre."
Cons: "Flight was cancelled 2 minutes after departure time. Staff was rude when we tried asking questions. It took an additional 2 hours to rebook on another airline and we had to spend an extra night in a hotel near the airport."
Cons: "I was bumped off. So I liked nothing about that SAS flight."
Cons: "Lost luggage delivered today"
Cons: "That it was cancelled"
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: "That I wasnt on the flight! Air traffic in Rome delayed us from leaving on time. Airline wouldnt comment until 15 minutes before landing if connecting flights would be held. They werent...we were 45 minutes late. Though my son and I were put up in a hotel it didnt compensate for our missed engagement in Chicago.1 full day gone!"
Pros: "Not full- middle seat in coach was empty. Newish 737-700, nice crew. Seats were reasonably comfortable with decent seat pitch."
Cons: "Meal (chicken) was inedible- and I am not fussy about airline food. The in-plane entertainment system is not activated (nor on my return flight), so they hand out i-pads with a very limited movie/TV show selection- one more piece of electronics to handle. Would have been difficult juggling, along with work computer, etc. if all seats were filled."
Pros: "Great selection of movies!"
Cons: "Flight was delayed due to weather :("
Pros: "I was traveling internationally alone with my 5-month old daughter. The crew was both kind and accommodating. It was a smooth stress-free trip for all!"
"Poor communication from boarding staff, airport staff not a clue. Communication on board was un decipherable and airline lost baggage."
"Not the best crew. Extremely annoying with mask wearing. Even when I was eating and drinking they would come up to you to tell you to wear your mask. Extremely annoying."
Pros: "Crew are the best!"
Pros: "Nothing, the flight was delayed, the plane too small for passengers to store their carry-on luggage, the ground staff did not upload all the luggage and left some behind in Nairobi on the tarmac, the crew lied about the luggage being uploaded. Terrible experience! Kenya Airways is becoming worst and worst."
Cons: "Everything, the flight was delayed, the plane too small for passengers to store their carry-on luggage, the ground staff did not upload all the luggage and left some behind in Nairobi on the tarmac, the crew lied about the luggage being uploaded. Terrible experience! Kenya Airways is becoming worst and worst."
Cons: "This airline charges for everything, and after you pay once, they try to charge you again, and again, and again (four different people tried to charge me 4 different times for my two checked bags). And they lost the record of my payment, so I had to show 4 times the Amex receipt showing that I had paid before. It took 45 minutes and 4 non receptive agents for me to get my luggage checked. British Airways is significantly better."
Pros: "Crew attentive. The delay was due to airport conditions in FCO, cannot be blamed on Air France."
Cons: "Food. For a 2-hour plus flight, from 11am to 1:30pm, we got 20gr pretzel sticks. This is ridiculous. Don't pretend you are not low-cost! Formerly, before the Joon failed (thank God) venture, Air France had real sandwiches around that time of the day on that line."
Pros: "Not much, seats are super uncomfortable"
Cons: "Better code sharing with KLM"
Cons: "We didn’t travel to Detroit... we were re-routed 3 times and our luggage is lost, some really helpful ppl along the way (thankfully) and some really crummy ppl too... no in between... still not to our destination"
Pros: "Well trained, professional, highly efficient flight attendant, and what is more important, in good mood during the whole the flight"
Cons: "The mobile application Air France didn't know the city or airport Dubai. Often same thing happens on the android application work Sheremetievo airport in Moscow"
Cons: "We had a short delay"
Pros: "Great food and friendly crew."
Cons: "Seatback system was old and not very functional."
Pros: "Excellent service"
Pros: "The crew was wonderful. We were in business class which was modest but comfortable."
Cons: "Ground crew in Paris failed to put our luggage on plane to Amsterdam. Also, plane was delayed about 40 minutes because of Amsterdam air traffic. Captain was very apologetic to the passengers."
Cons: "Too much time spent at boarding. On luggage missing."
Cons: "If you have to change planes and Paris is your middle person. Leave at least 2-3 in between the two flights otherwise you might not make it."
Pros: "Very little"
Cons: "Flight was very crowded. Flight crew kept bumping into my seat and never apologized"
Cons: "wine selection divider between seats"
Pros: "The flight crew on the flight was amazing. Went beyond basic needs and requirements."
Pros: "Crew was nice, too short of a flight to figure out more"
Cons: "no chance to try. Can’t pick a special meal in short term flights and snacks are not vegan"
Cons: "I ordered Asian Vegetarian Meal. But they served me only pasta."
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: "Food and wine was very good. Music selection was excellent."
Cons: "Not enough leg room."
Cons: "1/ the transfer crew needed 50 mn to enter my son’s visa number in her computer and she almost let us miss our flight 2/ we were separated (party of 3, my son being 5 YEARS OLD) - how can they allow a boarding and expecting my 5 year old to do a 10 hours flight BY HIMSELF???? 3/ no kids menus, even if I had ordered it before 4/ food in general was very mediocre 5/ crew was unprofessional and they acted bored"
Pros: "The airplane was modern, and the crew very good. Nice, service oriented and in general trying to make the flight experience as good as possible."
Cons: "The flight was very late. I lost my connection. My bag was lost and unable to recover it so far (after more than 24 hours). About to initiate the next leg of the trip with no clothes or any idea if my luggage will be recovered."
Pros: "The cabin crew were excellent"
Cons: "We were transported to the plane which was quite some distance to the plane via bus after climbing down steep stairs from the departure gate area. Then we had to climb steep steps in extremely hot weather. We were then delayed for a hour in the plane in very hot conditions as the plane had its air conditioning off and the ground air conditioning was not put on. We were swearing in the heat for an hour!! We arrived at our destination and hour and half late!!"
Cons: "Crew not only lacked sensibility to understand the purpose of an emotional support dog but kept harassing me about the dog being tied to my seat. At some point a flight attendant even tried to touch my dog, invading my personal space. When the dog rightfully acted defensive trying to protect me, the crew member started threatening me that he would have the dog sent to cargo, the last thing a person with an emotional support pet wants to hear. Extreme lack of professionalism."
Cons: "Flight was delayed 3 times and when I was finally put on a flight that was leaving, they failed to check the connection in Paris (Left me 10 minutes to get from the aircraft to the other plane!) I was moved to SAA in the end after a truly traumatic time in Johannesburg. This is not the first time I have suffered at the hands of Air France sadly. Needless to say, I wont be booking with Air France again."
Pros: "It was ok fligh"
Cons: "Food was not so good"
Cons: "Flight cancelled because of weather"
Cons: "They loosed our reserved seats, our luggage, food was awful, ground staff was disrespectful."
Pros: "The space and the people"
Pros: "Plane was clean. Pilots made up some of departure delay time in the air between NCE & CDG."
Cons: "Unorganized boarding process and minimal info or announcements regarding delay. Failure to respect SkyPriority status at boarding were disappointing. (Staff allowed it to be a bit pushy and chaotic and people were able to force their way in line, ahead of those who had been waiting in line.) Seats were okay but no recline and underseat storage was small. (Backpack wouldn't fit underseat and had to be stored in overhead.) Passengers crowding from back of plane upon arrival made it hard to deplane and felt rude."
Cons: "The company simply lets passengers board a fulled booked flight with far too much luggage. Result, take off 20 minutes late because there was not enough room for luggage in the overhead compartments. I was flying with just a small backpack that went under the seat"
Pros: "The food, entertainment, and service. Waited for me after almost missing my flight."
Pros: "The fresh bread and cheese."
Cons: "The staff is very unprofessional in receiving the passengers and serving the drinks mainly. The luggage wasn’t received and after 24 hrs no news about it! It’s a shame"
Pros: "Todo muy bien Volvería a viajar con ellos."
Pros: "The price 50€ cheaper than the other operators. Quick flight. Kind crew."
Cons: "Lack organisation for checking. No difference if you have done the checking online. No breakfast on a 7am flight though included in the price."
Pros: "The crew was very nice and helpful."
Cons: "We ordered a vegetarian meal. However, the vegetarian option offered to those who did not order a special meal looked better than the vegetarian option that we received."
Cons: "It was delayed"
Pros: "The crew is great, with their typical slightly humourous and casual French attitude. Great collection of international quality movies."
Cons: "Average and disappointing sitting space. The vegan lacto-ovo meal is disappointing."
Cons: "Air France lost my luggage and they can't find it in the computer system."
Pros: "Arrived on time"
Cons: "Cattle car accommodations"
Pros: "All crew I interacted with was great, friendly, and helpful."
Cons: "Flight was late. Boarding very slow. Entertainment was ok by today's standards. Each seat had a display, but movie selection was not great. For a French airline I was looking forward to breakfast -- maybe some nice pastries or at least a decent croissant with jam. None such. It was disappointing. Meals were not impressive either, but the complimentary wine was good."
Cons: "Food was not good."
Pros: "Amazing service, seat and FOOD"
Pros: "food was good, leg room was decent for economy"
Cons: "didn't have usb charging ports in the seats on one of the flights, in flight entertainment can improve."
Cons: "Small leg space"
Pros: "I didn't feel cramped in a Window Seat. Two meals were served during the flight. It was nice to get back to being fed something other than skippy snacks on an airline flight."
Cons: "I was ignored over and over again as ice cream, drinks and snacks were offer by the crew. It would have been nice if some would ask me before falling asleep if I wanted to be roused for snacks and desserts. After being on back to back flights of more than 10 hours each it would be considerate for the crew to be aware of my length of travel and to make sure they don't assume my resting my eyes is the same as me being asleep. Even when I was awake it appeared I was being overlooked, ignored and left out of complimentary services I saw other receiving....my bad for not asking to be noticed."
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."
