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"

Cons: "the headrest is hard. Apart from that- all was fine"

Pros: "Overall KLM experience is good"
Cons: "Food quality was mediocre for a business class flight."

Cons: "Not enough legroom"
Pros: "Snooth and efficiënt with a KLM service"
Cons: "No entertainment"
Pros: "The flight to Gdansk took off and arrived on-time and the staff were professional."
Cons: "The flight to Amsterdam from Gdansk was late and I had to RUN to the connecting gate. 50 minutes is NOT ENOUGH time to go through passport control."
Pros: "The crew was fantastic! Our needs were constantly being met and just about the time you thought you might want a snack or a meal, the attendants were already heading down the aisle. Because of an allergic reaction, I asked for ice a number of times and the attendants were more than happy to meet my needs."
Cons: "The seats were very close together. The trip from New York to Amsterdam seemed a lot more comfortable than the return flight. The food from NYC JFK was better than the food from Amsterdam. The movie selection on both flights was a little disappointing."
Pros: "She was cheerful and genuine. I have dietary restrictions but was unable to preorder a meal. She went out of her way to find an available meal for me. I also saw her bring other passengers extra snacks and drinks."
Cons: "Cramped seating."
Pros: "Fairly nice flight. 7 hours AMS to JFK. They had ice cream cones for us mid flight and an after dinner cognac if you wished."
Cons: "Not a big fan of paying for a few extra inches of leg room in a better seat after paying for a ticket."
Cons: "Boarding was very confusing. There was an area where they were checking people's bags or something near the gate and you didn't know if you needed to stop at it or continue. They didn't collect garbage before landing. Not only did we have to take our bags off the plane, we had to carry our garbage (drink cups/food served) to the front of the plane to throw out."
Cons: "They have mabaged to lost my luggage"
Pros: "Nice crew; clean plane; decent dinner"
Cons: "No entertainment system; insufficient knee space"
Pros: "On both of my flights to New York City, I was amazed at how friendly and helpful the flight attendants were to the passengers. On my short flight from Basel to Amsterdam, a young French speaking girl was concerned about how to manage getting to her next gate. The flight attendants talked to her and arranged for someone to take her there. On my longer flight from Amsterdam to New York City, there was a customer who was in distress about missing a previous flight and not making it to her connecting flight in New York. One of the flight attendants reassured her until she stopped crying and calmed down. That same flight attendant was always so positive and cheerful in all she did. The rest of the crew was top notch. This was my best experience flying in such a long time. Well done, KLM crews of flights 1984 and 0645 on July 10!"
Pros: "The time keeping was very good. We left on time and arrived early on both occasion. Good organisation. Excellent service."
Pros: "Due to lightening bolt strike our pre-Y2K era plane got switched out with a newer plane with modern media delivery at the seats."
Cons: "This caused a two hour delay in boarding and another 30 minutes on the JFK T4 tarmac. Same crappy headphones so it wasn’t the"
Pros: "Seats were comfortable"
Cons: "Flight was delayed by 2 hours. Could have gone to Amsterdam and come back in that time"
Pros: "The flight was great."
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: "Of the multiple international airlines I recently flew with, I would have to say KLM was by far the best. Relaxing atmosphere, comfortable seating, great in-flight entertainment, although I have the go-go in-flight data/entertainment plan with t-mobile (highly recommended), the flight included a decent selection of movies, television programs, etc. The food far exceeded typical "airline quality," even for an international flight - and included a fabulous little snack box with locally sourced gourmet and specialty items such as chocolate from Belgium, fine cheeses from France, and crackers from England. Drinks = gratis, and crew was exceptionally attentive and went out of their way to make flight as pleasant as possible."
Pros: "great choice of entertainment content, friendly crew"
Cons: "Our flight was canceled from Amsterdam to Bordeaux and did not receive any direction and had to find alternate flights for ourselves with the personal expense of using our own cell phones. Then our luggage lost for 3 days. Not happy! We ended up flying from Toronto to Paris then to Bordeaux. Lost my upgrade money for seats. Now have to deal with KLM for refund!"
Pros: "They were awesome."
Pros: "Everything was good. The crew was very friendly and attentive. The plane was comfortable, with great entertainment on the personal screens. The food was delicious. Flight was on time and actually arrived early, but then we had to wait for a gate (not the airline's fault)."
Cons: "No complaints at all."
Pros: "Overall, my trip to Cardiff via Amsterdam was smooth and delightful. I've flown a few short trips this summer and I was pleasantly surprised to find KLM still offered complimentary snacks. What a refreshing change!"
Cons: "There was no entertainment which is why I assigned that category only one star. The boarding process in Amsterdam could have been a bit smoother. Announcements were no clear."
Pros: "Crew was friendly, and the food was better than the usual KLM fare."
Cons: "The "new" seats were hard and uncomfortable. Avoid any kinds of seats near the bathroom in a configuration with 3 abreast next to the windows. The "aisle" seat is essentially a "waiting area" for the rest room."
Pros: "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: "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."
Cons: "Horrible. First, we lost a suitcase. It could happen but for two days they did nothing and only told us stories (so as not to use the word lies). Within a few hours (and thanks to airline assistance) we were able to locate the suitcase. Even then it took them two days to bring it to us, two precious days off our planned vacation (7 days) At the end of the shortened vacation, we got to the chek in, and told that since the ticket I had purchased form them two months earlier was too cheap ... and since the flight was Over booked, they would take me off the plane if all the passengers would arrive. It's unnecessary to describe what I felt until the plane took off. They apologize constantly, but do nothing practical. a bae company. no me nor my freinds/family will go with KLM"
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: "The crew"
Cons: "Old seats Poor entertainment"
Cons: "Wider seats"
Cons: "The worst airline ever"
Pros: "helpful and friendly crew"
Cons: "more comfortable and spacious seats."
Cons: "We’ve missed this flight due to a medical emergency. Called before the flight took off to advise on the situation and ask for help to rebook the same flight later once the health status is stable. Have been told that there is absolutely nothing that can be done to be partially partially refunded at least for the 2nd flight that had to be catched after over 30 hours, which is unacceptable."
Pros: "Terrible rude counter staff"
Cons: "They dont care about customers at all"
Pros: "Good airline and good service"
Pros: "Понравился вежливый персонал при посадке на рейс"
Cons: "За 9 с половиной часов мало давали воды. Первый раз предложили напитки и воду через 2 часа после вылета, и сразу же горячий обед, где тоже были чай/кофе. После этого около 5-6 часов ничего не предлагали, и почти за полтора часа до приземления в спешке предложили воду, напитки и второй горячий обед, в котором предлагалась паста с курицей или паста с сырным соусом и грибами. Я выбрала второе, на деле никакого сыра там не было, соус был как чистый майонез, только горячий, и грибов было два маленьких кусочка по сантиметру каждый. На вкус это были просто горячие макароны с майонезом. Да и зелень в салате уже была темная. Полтора месяца назад на рейсе Нью-Йорк - Москва еда была вкусная, да и до этого никогда претензий не было, в этот раз одни неприятные впечатления"
Cons: "Stuart and stuardess was not nice at all. Very dry, did not give a choice of food or drink, were serving like they were not happy to be there, afraid to say an extra word, Not polite."
Pros: "We arrived safely"
Cons: "Airplane was two hours late. The food was not good. Not friendly crew."
Pros: "Crew was nice very polite and helpful that is why excellent rating. Comfort was as good as that can be in economy class, very good food and decent entertainment."
Cons: "Boarding was a bit inconvenient as the plane was not at the gate and bus ride was used to access plane."
Pros: "The food, I must say, was the most impressive thing. They give away some souvenirs for you during the flight which was awesome. I even got ice cream as dessert. I can't tell what to say was wrong with the flight. I will definitely recommend Aeroflot for sure."
Cons: "Food was awful. Flight attendants were unfriendly. They would talk to you while you were wearing headphones and then get irritated when you asked them to repeat what they said. They were always in such a rush even though the plane was mostly empty. Strange"
Pros: "Everything Lot of leg room-in economy"
Cons: "Nothing- Everything was OK !!!"
Cons: "have a seat by check-in that very over weight people must be able to fit in without raising the arm rest or have them buy 2 seats. 9+ hour flight was extremely uncomfortable and smelly because of that."
Cons: "The cabin was unusually warm. The aircraft did not have air vents above the seats, so there was no good way to cool down."
Pros: "The boarding process was smooth, no hassle at luggage check in, the crew was very solicitous and eager to help,the seats had plenty of leg room, slippers were distributed, my veggie meal was tasty and there even was ice cream."
Cons: "My TV screen was very slow to respond to touch and to remote control. There should have been a greater choice of current movies."
Pros: "Great Food, Great Service, Great Entertainment options"
Pros: "The plane was very modern and clean with a good balance of seating and leg room. The flight staff was friendly, professional and very helpful. Food was good and drinks plentiful."
Pros: "The seats are comfortable even in the economy class. Plus we got slippers so I could kick my boots off."
Cons: "For whatever reason we got bused to the plane. The bus went for couple of miles around the airport before we got to the plane. Then we had to walk to the plane in the rain. This is very unusual event, as I fly often this route and this is the first time it occured."
Pros: "The crew did a very good job"
Cons: "It was too hot inside the cabin"
Cons: "TV didn't work on an 8-hour flight. Crew refused to move my son to a working monitor, because it was in "comfort" seating, despite the fact that the plane was airborne and the whole row was empty."
Pros: "The option to watch th and movies is excellent even though mine did not work. I appreciated the 2 meals and one complimentary glass of wine."
Cons: "For my long 10 hour flight from Moscow to NYC, my tv did not work and the connection to plug in my cell phone went in and out. The crew was not friendly, though polite. I would have preferred more space."
Pros: "Nothing Nothing Nothing Nothing Nothing Nothing Nothing"
Cons: "Everything about this airline is bad, very old planes, very unconfortable, uneatable food, etc. Everything is so bad, I can't believe an airline with such low standards still exist in 2017."
Pros: "The female flight attendants are all stunning in their bright orange uniform."
Cons: "The planes are very tight. Ever since they updated their aircraft they added one or two rows and planes became so narrow! On the way to Moscow we didn't have an entertainment because they monitors didn't work for 30% of the plane. On the way back they delayed the flight for 5 hours because they plane had technical issues and they were changing it. We missed our connection from NY to Miami and since it was a separate ticket I lost those tickets. They didn't update us while we were waiting what's going on. A few times they would announce boarding on the electronic tableau, people would line up and wait for 40 minutes. The staff would just look and say nothing or smile and say "we don't know why you are standing, I didn't tell you to line up!" We had a special meal on the flight. They gave you exactly the same food twice. I was just laughing but other people who had special meals were really upset. If someone asked they would probably say "it's your problem that you don't want to eat like the rest lol! Next time when booking a flight I'll pay more but have a normal experience and not the torture "Russian style""
Pros: "I wasn't sure what to expect, but the airline was better than I thought. Good food (2 servings), decent entertainment, and nice amenities (pillows, eye mask, slippers) for economy class for an international flight. For the price I paid, I would fly Aeroflot again. I wish I would have gotten my Russian transit visa prior to my trip. I knew about it, I just didn't want to pay the $200. SVO airport is great and open 24hr, but having a 20hr layover is tough. p.s. Don't let a hotel/Airbnb tell you you don't need a visa - you do! I watched 2 girls have meltdowns in the airport because they had hotel reservations, but no visas. Sad, wet eyes does nothing for Russian airport officials."
Cons: "The staff, but you have to remember that Russian customer service is different from American. Some of the staff were really friendly and nice. I think they were compensating for the overtly rude ones, so it even itself out. Boarding at the airport isn't always clear if your flight is boarding or not. Pay extra attention to your gate and time changes."
Cons: "The wait at the gate was very disorganized, the information didn't show up until after our boarding time. The entrainment system didn't work so we didn't have anything to watch for a 10 hour flight. Also, baggage took the longest ever to show up. I would never fly Aeroflot ever again."
Pros: "food was good crew was also very professional"
Cons: "flight was delayed 3 hours very inconvenient for us since we had to work the next day"
Cons: "The baggage was LOST!!!!"
Pros: "Great food, stuff and free movies"
Cons: "The flight attendant seemed to have been bothered by the fact that she had to tend to my boyfriend and I. Any simple question we had may it had been what was on the menu for lunch or a simple request for ice in our drink; we received with a rude tone. When our plane was about to land I had my eyes closed because I had been traveling for 24 hours and was still very tired and she (Olga, I believe her name was) yelled saying "MIS, WAKE UP AND OPEN YOUR WINDOW!" this was by far the WORST flight experience I have ever had. I suggest this particular flight attendant reconsiders her career choice because customer service does not fit her. It is safe to say that I will NEVER fly Aeroflot again. And will be spreading the word to my colleagues and friends as I too am in the travel business and know how important it is to feel comfortable and safe when traveling abroad."
Pros: "The flight was comfortable, or as comfortable as economy can be. I would say, it was as nice as Lufthansa, just with fewer drinks. We also got ice cream between meals."
Cons: "English is not the flight attendants strength. It was manageable though. The drinks came out before the food. That was a little strange and left my thirsty after my meals."
Cons: "The flight was good overall, but the boarding crew in Moscow (that was after a transit) didn't let me take my guitars up on the airplane, different from what I agreed on at the first flight, where I paid 200 USD to take it with me on the plane. The flight attendant was very nice and agreed to help me and take it on the plane."
Cons: "One of the stewardesses was no polite at all, making passengers feel like in school. Such people should not work with people, only in back office. Please train your staff to work with people."
Pros: "The seats are spacious and there is a pillow and blanket for everyone. I had no trouble storing my bag in the overhead compartment and I was happy to learn I didn't have to pay extra for two suitcases."
Cons: "The food was terrible. The movie and tv selection was not to my liking."
Cons: "For some reason handles between seats couldn't be raised. we were traveling with a child, and could not use three seats as a "bed" as usual"
Pros: "The flight and service was great as usual. The TV not working made the flight boring as there was no entertainment and the fact that the flight was super packed made it so I couldnt get comfy."
Pros: "Plane was clean, seats were comfortable, provided two meals, lots of beverages, movie choices"
Cons: "Unable to communicate with staff prior to boarding due to language barriers, VERY unorganized boarding"
Pros: "Had a wonderful experience on the Aeroflot flight. The plane was comfortable, the flight attendants were extremely attentive and overall it was a pleasure. Thanks team Aeroflot!"
Pros: "Servis was exselent :)"
Pros: "Huge delay. We had a toddler and weren't offered the seats behind the wall, which is for people with kids. There weren't even people with kids sitting at those seats. Next time will fly with finnair."
Cons: "The blanket had hair, dust, and peanuts from previous passengers, flight attendant insisted that they had no new blankets. I was suffering for a cold and I noticed that one flight attendant has the new blanket on her hands, but she told me that is for business class only. That's ridiculous. I had to buy some cold medicine in New York to get my health back together for the stuff I need to do. The process of boarding was extremely unorganized, there is no sky priority either. I will not continue to pay for that membership for this lame service. The food is the worst."
Pros: "Nothing redeeming about Aeroflot"
Cons: "Flight was delayed four hours. Sat on first plane for an hour before they announced mechanical problem. Meal voucher given during airport wait, but no announcement was made and some passengers weren't aware. Staff was curt and unhelpful."
Pros: "Nothing really"
Cons: "Boarding took forever. The line to beard stretched far into the terminal. Only at the end they decided to let people in faster using a second person. The food was horrible. Flight attendant and the pilot insisted on making announcements in English that sounded painful. They really should brush these people up slightly to improve pronounciation. There was no way to purchase alcohol on the flight. They gave a complimentary noglass of wine with the first meal, but after that you were done. Bringing your own alcohol to drink on board was "illegal". Obviously that's what people do anyway."
Pros: "The staff was very polite and attentive. Flight was shorter than expected; 9 hours total. Fairly clean, well organized. Entertainment was first rate with a huge selection of movies, TV programs, games."
Cons: "The food was mediocre; probably about the worst airplane food I ever had. Can't be sure, but I had GI problems the day after, possibly due to asking for ice in my drink. (the rest of my family did not get sick and we ate the same food but no ice) Also, annoyed that seats cannot be selected until 24 hours before flight. An added stess, esp while you're touring. Fortunately, our hotel concierge was able to book our seats. Overall tho, I'd fly Aeroflot again."
Pros: "I liked the fact we landed and that they don't terrorise you over little overweight of luggage."
Cons: "*They lost and then found our luggages, that happens but after we found out that the luggage was badly damaged we had hard time replacing it. *Flight was delayed and no one would tell us, so we were standing in line for hours (2.5) and then finally they made announcement that another delay will happen. UNINFORMED would be the biggest issue. *crew seamed annoyed every time my cousin with pour english asked for something. *my TV was broken, so no movie for me, that's why entertainment is 1*"
Cons: "It's my second transatlantic flight with Aeroflot. Nothing is done in time. First time the first flight (Saint Petersburg-Miscow ) was late and we missed the Moscow-NY flight (we're given a good hotel not far from the airport, but were to leave the room at 7am next morning, though our flight was much later). This time the connecting flight was planned in 3.45 hrs. In fact, we took off in 8 hrs. Nobody explained anything. The company provided food vouchers for $7.5, but people had to stand in the line for ah hour to get them, and with the airport prices the sum was enough only for a coffee and a hamburger. The organization is awful - people are invited to board, they stand in the line but the boarding starts only in 40 minutes! Very poor quality of food. And when I flew back with my granny who was in a wheelchair there was a very nasty lady at the counter, who told me we could get a chair only after a check-in and the granny was supposed to walk to the check in, though it's really hard for her. Only my being able to insist made that lady solve the problem. I am Russian and I am ashamed that this is out only company (they were able to buy or destroy all the rest)"
Pros: "Cute uniform and Kind flight attendant, full of entertainment channel, good food, very nice."
Cons: "Seat is a little narrow. Hard to sleep. Waiting line to getting plane is really long and not good organize."
Pros: "again, the crew and plane were exellent"
Cons: "the food was uneatable i would recommend serving rice in stead of pasta and hard-boiled eggs instead of the omelette, these were the worst dishes. i understand the many calculations that go into making these on0board meals. if you take a look at swissair menu you will find many great things. on the other hand, the cold cut meats and cheeses were very good, i would reccomend putting more russian delights such as potatos and meats in simple form, more butter, and of course beer over wive, which was also not good. thank you for reading so far!"
Pros: "I had a very comfortable seat from Moscow to NYC, with room for legs and no one next to me. Connection was short (in a good way). Suitcase delivered for me."
Cons: "The flight from Moscow to NYC was OK but food was medium. TV series were no so good. Old stuff or uninteresting stuff."
Pros: "The lie-flat seats were just great ."
Cons: "Storage space should be made available beside the seats , especially during take-off and landing. There is none right now , and that's in Business class."
Pros: "Both crews from JFK to HEL and HEL to JFK were great. Very attentive and accommodating."
Cons: "Service very cold and rare to find. For some reason finnair doesn’t announce boarding"
Cons: "Customer service"
Pros: "Crew great."
Cons: "Seats too close together. Armrest on aisle could not be raised making exit almost impossible."
Pros: "everything was good"
Cons: "Needed a bit more food :)"
Cons: "Boarding began 25 min after the indicated time. Huge crowd of people (big Airbus 330) was standing in the corridor in some kind of disorganized manner. Priority entrance was open, but then another 20-25 min in the closed waiting area, some kind of hoarder. Only then the mixture of all passengers was let through the sleeve to the plane. Why bother about Priority? Plane arrive in NYC 35 min late. Many transit passengers worried about their connecting flights."
Pros: "blueberry juice, service and friendliness"
Cons: "no choice of food, little space between the seats, touchscreen and headphones didn't work, for over 8 hours flight this was significant set back"
Pros: "I enjoy my flight"
Cons: "Again no complains"
Pros: "Free movies, TV shows, ok seats (but hey, it's a plane), great meals and service, and a pillow, blanket and water for each person. I really enjoyed both flights with Finnair and would gladly pick them again!"
Cons: "The flight from Helsinki arrived 2 hours late to JFK due to mechanical reasons causing some passengers miss their connectiing flights, which is quite normal in airline practice. What was not normal and supper aggravating was the fact that nobody met us at the gate to help us rebook our missed flights. We had to find an AA agent in the departure area and stand in line with other passengers who were checking in to their flight to Jordan. There was no customer service what so ever provided by Finnair."
Pros: "The friendly crew, and quiet cabin"
Cons: "The food was too Finnish."
Pros: "UNCOMFORTABLE BED AND SERVICE"
Cons: "BED, DRINKS"
Pros: "I like Finnair, the crew, the service."
Cons: "I was not able to check in online within the 24 hrs prior to the flight as the Iberia system kept flashing and "error"message. Therefore, I was not able to pick a seat, which I would have paid to upgrade if necessary, but instead I was assigned a middle seat as a last option, at the counter, and paid for an exit row which, except for the leg room, was just as uncomfortable!"
Pros: "Express customs and immigration for connective flights with individual passes!"
Cons: "Total disaster. Back up lines at AA JFK . Staff at a loss, equipment ? Shortage of bins, no supervisors , ... deliberate chatting and slowing down upon manually going through majority of carry on."
Cons: "No leg room."
Pros: "Service was great. Comfortable seats and the individual tvs made the 8+ hour flight to NY go so quick and easy. I'll definitely fly finnair again!"
Cons: "Flight attendants in majority were rude, didn't care, unhelpful, for business class, service was worst I ever experienced. Plane is old, pretty dirty, they don't care about elders at all, this flight really ruined my whole travel experience, I doubt I'd ever want to go back."
Pros: "I liked all the variety of the meal (many different snacks & components aside from the entree) and the very nice crew"
Cons: "No way to control volume of cabin announcements if you're plugged into the entertainment system. Announcements EAR SPLITTING and very painful for anyone using their own in-ear phones. Such phones are very common today, so this issue urgently needs updating."
Pros: "Yes, in general I like American Airlines so I was happy with flight in general"
Pros: "The Finnair representatives at the airport were incredibly nice and helpful."
Cons: "I never made it on the flight because I booked through airfare.com which gives no warning or notices that passports need to be valid for three months after a flight to France. I ended up spending hours on the phone with them constantly being yelled at by their customer service reps."
Pros: "HiFly is awful. Terrible food. Really not much service. It gets you from point A to B ..... but not always. Our return flight was cancelled with no reason given. Instead of a 2pm direct we were put on an 8am with a layover. The only saving grace is that our transatlantic was on Delta, which was amazing."
Cons: "Awful food No service Outsourced both flights to a low budget third party carrier Canceled return flight with no reason or apologies OR compensation (as of this moment) provided"
Pros: "Well this was a first for me. The flight was overbooked and some one wanted to go to New York. Finn Air asked me if I would give up my seat they would get me on the next Finn Air flight to Chicago. I did and they even up graded me to business class on the next flight. It was the best flight experience of my life. Great food, hosts, and service. It was very comfortable the entire way."
Pros: "Friendly service, lots of movies, Marimekko design."
Cons: "Seats too close together front to back. If the person in front of you lies down the back of their seat is in your face."
Pros: "The Airbus 330 is an improvement over the Boeing 737 that took me to Europe (via Milan) on this trip. Unlike that flight, this plane is equipped with an updated on demand entertainment system. I attribute the upgraded airplane to the fact that this was a direct flight from HEL to JFK. Still no wifi though... Their magazine says it's coming. Upgrading to Economy Comfort is worth the fee especially if you get a bulkhead seat. Otherwise you are still pretty crammed in with maybe 6" more leg room. But the bulkhead seats are set well back from the wall to give my long legs plenty of room to stretch and get in and out of my seat. My friends in Economy looked miserable :( The chili con carne with rice was an improvement over other airline meals but still room for improvement - mostly in presentation I guess. Lingonberry 'salad' though a bit sour for me, was a nice Finnish dish to sample. Like the cheese and crackers. Departed and arrived on time. Liked the flight tracking that showed you very detailed what you were passing over and even gave us a bit of info and photos about highlights of each region flown over. Nice touch."
Cons: "This plane was such an improvement over the "bucket" that flew me to Europe that it has restored my faith in Finnair as a valid carrier for my yearly trip to Europe - like I said, probably because it is a direct flight to New York rather than connecting to another European (not Scandanavian) city like Milan. I would probably not use Finnair to access other parts of Europe for this reason. (On the departure end, the regional Finnair flight from Milan to Helsinki was also sub-standard.) I do think the check-in procedure is still cumbersome - self check in with bag check, though started at kiosks, still results in a long line just to hand off your bag to a counter agent. A few more agents would likely solve that problem... But it was better than going the other way - JFK was a nightmare! Helsinki only slightly better."
Pros: "Food was provided when the flight was delayed for 2 1/2 hours. I also really liked the text update from kayak about the delay. The airline did not keep me updated but kayak did."
Cons: "The delay when it was already a 6 hour flight. I also was not able to reserve a seat because I had booked through kayak and not with the airline. Finally of the most irritating of all annoyance was that there was no movie. This was an international flight and there was no entertainment. I will never fly American Airlines again."
Cons: "food was about the worst I have seen (with special mention to the coffee served as it was def the worst even for airplanes standards) could not check in online ( web would not allow me)"
Cons: "Whoever designed and built this airplane should literally be INDICTED - AND I AM NOT KIDDING! We were in disbelief the moment we boarded and saw the airplane. 10 people across jammed into the row??!! - and on an long international flight?? - are you kidding??!! Further, these were the SMALLEST seats I have EVER been forced to sit in. Neither I, or my friend came close to fitting. We literally had to alternate getting up and standing because we were literally overlapping each other when we sat! (His shoulder and arm were literally on top of me!!). It was so bad that when the stewardess came rolling down the aisle with her cart, I had to be aware and see her in advance so I could literally TURN MY BODY OVER TO THE LEFT HALF ON TOP OF THE PERSON SITTING NEXT TO ME SO SHE WOULDN'T TAKE OFF MY ARM AND SHOULDER. ULTIMATELY, SOMEONE, OR MORE THAN ONE PERSON, IS GOING TO GET SERIOUSLY HURT BY THIS RECKLESS, GREED-DRIVEN DESIGN!! The OVERT GREED by the airline (American) clearly reflected by this in trying to JAM as many human beings into a flight as possible like Sardines is DISGUSTING!!! You simply DO NOT TREAT HUMAN BEINGS THIS WAY!! It is also clear evidence that there needs to be tighter standards, regulations and penalties by the FAA and what is allowed by airlines. AND I AM SENDING A LETTER TO THE FAA!!!"
Pros: "This is not my first experience with Finnair flight and I'm very pleased with a consistency of a good service, high professionalism and I will recommend this airline to all my friends."
Pros: "The options for music and movies were good, but the poor service provided, at check-in and on board, outweighed any benefit we received from the entertainment."
Cons: "The crew at Barcelona Airport, especially "Javier" (he refused to give his last name or show his badge - he had it turned around) was very rude and unhelpful. We had to go to another desk person to help us who was a bit more polite. The Finnair Customer Service telephone service was completely unhelpful even though this was booked as a Finnair Flight. The crew on board was ok, at best. The food was the poorest we had in both flights we took (we travelled from Barcelona to JFK, New York, and from JFK to YVR, Vancouver). We were most pleased with our flight from New York to Vancouver, with Cathay Pacific, who, by comparison, had very helpful and pleasant staff both at the JFK Airport and on board."
Pros: "Everything good except getting bag after flight."
Cons: "Took over an hour at baggage claim."
Pros: "Crew was very nice"
Cons: "Outdated planes: Intercontinental flight with no personal entertainment system, (cabin monitors only). Poor check in/No partner flight numbers listed: I booked a Finnair flight, it was operated by American Airlines, which is fairly common, but neither JFK or CDG listed the partner flight number or Finnair anywhere - which led to slow and confusing check in when neither Finnair nor AA could find my reservation"
Pros: "Crew was accommodating, entertainment movies was good and food/snacks was not bad for transatlantic flight from NY to Paris. Seats are cramped, but it is expected."
Cons: "Didn't appreciate the additional charge to select basic seats (not upgraded), not sure if justfly.com is affiliated with Kayak. I found it absurd but read reviews that if you don't select seats you might get bumped off your flight if it's oversold. I didn't take any chances so I paid the additional $29 and yet both my fiancee and I sat way apart. Arriving at the airport to check in, I saw options to select seats which made me upset even though there was nothing next to each other but way more options than online."
Pros: "The meeting I was attending in NY got postponed so I lost the full 1/2 return ticket. Nothing I could do, all at once all kinds of small text appear in big and over 400 $ was lost. This is the last time I book with Kayak. Better pay a bit more directly with the airline but do not have a deal like the Kayak deal. So please remove from all your sites. Thank you VV"
Pros: "The service was remarkable. Everyone was very attentive and friendly which is exactly what you would want for a long flight. The crew came around frequently to provide beverages and left you alone to sleep."
Cons: "The boarding process was a bit hectic. The flight was full which I completely understand. After everyone was settled in the plane it took another 25 minutes to leave the runway."
Pros: "Friendly crew and clean plane. I liked the ipads and the drinks. It was pretty quick and easy."
Cons: "Terrible turbulence the entire way and as it was a smaller plane you could feel it for most of the flight. The food was also not very good..."
Pros: "For the first time ever I had a flight on British Airways where I did not feel like I wanted to choke somebody at the end of the flight - so I was pleasantly surprised at this particular BA flight."
Cons: "BA gates in NYC are abysmal - the entire terminal is... Why are the restaurants advertising being open to some specific time (well prior to the departure of this flight) yet then have staff holler at you that they are closed when you try to go in well before that time. It would have been very nice to have been able to sit down and have some dinner prior to the flight, but the rudeness of both of the two restaurants and their staff was worthy of the notoriety of NYC attitudes (which I don't generally see in mainstream NYC society)."
Pros: "The price was right. The crew were very pleasant and attentive. Seating had sufficient room. Good movie selection."
Cons: "Seats did not recline properly, were not comfortable and very hard and hard on the bum."
Cons: "My Finnair flight from London to New York was cancelled due to weather conditions in New York. I understand that. What made me very frustrated and angry is that when I contacted Finnair to reschedule the flight I was told the flight was managed by British Airways and I would have to contact them When I contacted British Airways they said it was a Finnair flight and I had to contact them. I finally had no recourse but to buy another ticket through another airline. I feel that I should be reimbursed for my Finnair ticket from London to New York! I paid for a flight I never took. (The Finnair flight from New York to London was fine.)"
Pros: "The staff was very nice and attentive. Boarding was timely and flight landed 30 minutes early."
Cons: "Long flight with no screens on the back of the seats with personal entertainment options. Furthermore, I had a middle seat and my shoulders kept knocking into my neighbors. Worst of all, my seat didn't incline as far as the people on either side of me. Sleeping is already hard on a plane, and this made it way worse...not to mention my knees were jammed into the seat in front of me the whole time."
Pros: "courteous and helpful crew, easy calm and efficient boarding process, with a announcer who spoke CLEARLY, slowly and loud enough to hear, more comfortable plane than the AA plane I took to get to Paris."
Cons: "In flight entertainment really inferior to other airlines, food mediocre, but adequate. But good service is paramount and your crew was good despite many challenging customers."
Cons: "A lot of turbulence in the middle of the flight"
Pros: "The entertainment"
Cons: "The crew was not as helpful as we hoped for. Did not help in finding a place for the luggage so, did not provide the secrurity paper to fill out. And was not necessarily friendly."
Cons: "Finnair "outsourced" the flight to a Portuguese HiFly. Boarding: flight delayed for more than 1 hour, with passengers sitting all this time in the plane and waiting for all connection flights to arrive. As a result we arrived late for our connection flight. The Finnair people that met the passengers on exit form the plain did not provide any information how we should proceed next. We were left to figure it out by ourselves. Crew: The impression was that all the flight attendants from HiFly were untrained. The did not know what to do an how to do. They seemed lost on the plane. Comfort: Plane seemed to be re-purchased from some Arab airline. Food: bad Entertainment: v system was broken. Information system was showing wrong current time."
Cons: "Ingen underhållning ingen flyginformation otrevlig personal jag kommer inte att flyga Finnair igen. Jag och alla andra fick sitta att stirra på väggen framför oss i 7timmar den spanska personalen ska inte jobba för ett nordiskt flygbolag fy fan Med vänlig hälsning Benny"
Pros: "friendly crew"
Cons: "old B757 aircraft with poor entertainment system, not suitable for long haul flights"
Pros: "food and crew"
Cons: "Poor entertainment offer (no quality movies and not varied options-not classic movies!!). Interactive device menu not working properly or at all. Outraging policy to offer more bookings than available seats that turned out into my wife and me being put in standby when we had purchased our tickets last July. Waiting for 30-40 minutes to claim our baggage to know it had been left in our origin destination in the end so it would probably be delivered 2 days later since the next flight would arrive the following day but late in the evening and more time wasted on the lane to claim for it that caused to miss our connecting train that would take us home and we had to wait for another hour to take the next so we finally got home 2 hours later than expected. We will never use again another company from the one world alliance."
Cons: "Nothing was dairy free, staff did not even have access to ingredients so I could check myself."
Pros: "The only good thing was we landed early think that was more to do with the wind though!!!"
Cons: "They rebooked us all at the gate and split people up. So boarding was a nightmare without anyone being friendly. The plane was the oldest plane I have seen they had one tv for the plane and the whole section I was sat in didn't have volume that worked and they basically said too bad. The crew didn't respond to any lights that were put on they put their head down and scooted past you. I have been flying to and from USA to UK for 15 years worse flight."
"Flight attendant in Saga class was outstanding!! Could be more current entertainment choices...and wish they had a better business class seat."
Pros: "Flight was relatively empty. Professional crew, comfortable seats"
Cons: "I think they skipped me with food service. Checking up on passengers who may have been sleeping would be nice. Headphones need to be purchased. Limited entertainment options."
Cons: "The crew was very interested in gossiping instead of assisting their first class passengers. I sat with the same trash since the 2nd hour on a 6 hour first class trip. The entire first class cabin all had their call lights on which were ignored for over an hour. If you asked for anything they seemed to be annoyed they had to stop talking to each other. The cabin was also very warm to be an international flight."
Pros: "The crew were very nice and helpful."
Cons: "Providing a small snack would be great. Also the sears are extremely small so when the person in front of you reclines their seat all the way it induces a claustrophobic feeling and really limits your space. I suggest limiting the degree of reclining to not be as deep."
Pros: "Flight was delayed for an hour but considering the day before when all flights were cancelled and that whole morning flights were delayed at Reykjavík due to a major storm off the Irish coast the airport check in, security, and boarding went extremely well. Staff on board couldn’t have been more helpful and efficient to get the plane pushed back from the gate and get our flight going."
Cons: "The plane’s temperature was a little warm on both flights from New York and Iceland with no means to adjust fans or temperature at your seat like most airlines. The entertainment screen was down for about half of our flight back for both of us to New York but worked fine after."
Pros: "I liked my seat with more legroom. And there was very little turbulence."
Cons: "I wish there was access to blankets, it was very cold by the window. A better screen design maybe."
Pros: "The connexion flight: only 15 minutes to reach the plane. I didn't think I could get it. But all the crew at the airport and on the lane were very professional."
Pros: "Seats are reasonably roomy, and they lean back quite a lot without making the person behind it feel cramped. Entertainment was a great option - thank you for offering it for free - and yes to USB charger on the dock."
Cons: "Really enjoyed my flight, actually. Will definitely choose IA next time."
Pros: "The airplane waited for us because our first flight had a delay. The airplane was clean and in good condition. The flight was very smooth."
Pros: "Wait, what? Which flight did I review? You asked me about my flight to Minneapolis, but now you’re asking about Copenhagen to Reykjavik? Did I complain about the wrong flight?"
Cons: "This is a confusing review page. If you ask about my flight to Minneapolis, I think you mean Reykjavik to Minneapolis, but I think that was actually Tallinn to Copenhagen."
Pros: "Nice crew."
Cons: "Food selections horrible. And you need to pay for it. I got last piece of pizza and it tasted like it had been sitting there for a week. Drink cups were tiny. Movie options severely limited. WiFi never worked."
Pros: "The movie selection was good"
Cons: "Boarding could've been more organized. On a 6+ hour flight, a snack should be offered (gratis), and of course, there needs to be more leg room and more comfortable seats."
Pros: "Crew member were okay. Seat were not confer table"
Cons: "Would have been nice to serve some food since it was 5 hrs flight and good thing it has TV entertainment but the seat were so old and not comfortable. No ear phone or had to buy to use TV, i personally felt that they were just trying to make money in lit lit thing."
Pros: "The crew was great. The flight was smooth and we left and arrived on time. Nothing went awry."
Cons: "There is a weird place where you have to stand + wait to board in a crowded area--maybe this was specific to gate D23 or maybe it's how Keflavik Airport is in general? The seat was also too narrow for me. I was disappointed that none of the Icelandic media options included English subtitles."
Cons: "To begin, the flight could've left on time. We departed late and arrived at ORD 90 minutes late. Overall, a negative experience with Icelandair as the outbound flight also had delay issues. Not a good first experience with this airline."
Pros: "I got home. Basic ok flight in today's no frills world."
Cons: "Rekjavik for a transit point has a pleasing aesthetic but is poorly designed for the number of passengers going through it. The flight was late so we had to hoof it, then wait as the next flight was late. Not sure Icelandair really has it down. But we made it."
Pros: "The crew were very nice."
Cons: "The chairs were a bit uncomfortable"
Pros: "The crew was dynamic!"
Cons: "The seat was uncomfortable for me. Headrest was too high and tilted my head forward, resulting in a headache."
Pros: "The seats were great"
Cons: "The films were to old"
Pros: "The flight was smooth and on time. Crew was friendly and efficient."
Cons: "A 3-hour flight followed by a five-hour flight isn’t super comfortable but without paying for first class, it was as good as it could be."
Pros: "Not a lot."
Cons: "Boarding via bus just takes forever, get a legitimate jet bridge. Also the airport has about 20 seats at each gate for 80+ passenger planes, leaving a lot of people sitting on the floor."
Cons: "The booking was too tight. We BARELY made our flight to Minneapolis and the airport in Rehkjavik is way too small for the number of flights coming in at the same time. We were in a winding, snakelike line for security that went on forever and then when we got through, the lines for the gates were mixed up, without proper seating areas and separation. People were in the wrong lines because it was too crowded to see where we should be. This is a POORLY run airport that needs significant expansion and improvement."
Pros: "Aircraft clean"
Cons: "They land you on tarmac and you have the board a bus to come to the terminal. This is a challenge because the temperature in Reykjavik ranges 40-50F and rains frequently. Challenging for passengers who are not in tip top physical shape,have arthritis , have balance problem ,are older etc. We are talking about people who don't need a wheelchair and can manage well at other airports. No information from crew about what what to expect on landing and about connections. Flight was late and it caused us a lot of stress. Airport not friendly and no information about immigration etc, Only people who are very fit should consider this flight with a transfer at Reykjavik No food served. The steward serving our section was friendly"
Pros: "Cost was good. We doubt we'll fly Icelandia again because of the poor service and the unprepared state of affairs in Reykjavik."
Cons: "The boarding on a connection in Reykjavic was the worst I've ever seen in my thousand flights. Customers were very upset wanted to break through the longest boarding line they'd ever seen. I was somewhat concerned for the potential of the passengers getting out of order. Safety became an issue as passengers began threatening to bust the line. "But, our flight leaves in 10 min." was heard again and again as we slowly meandered toward our plane for which we were over 30 min. late. Planes in Reykjavik were held up, though there was no weather problem, because of an overwhelming number of passengers trying to board their connecrtion. We were told this is common. On an eight hour flight we had little food available for purchase. After delivering the food we waited about an hour before the attendants came through to pick up the paper and boxes remaining from the food."
Cons: "Not iceland air fault but waited over an hour after we landed to get into a gate. Then waited another 30 minutes after customs until luggage arrived. Seats go too far back. The guy in front of me was siting in my lap. Also the flight status boards in Reykjavik were not well designed. I've never seen so many people panicking and running to flights in my life. i was in the terminal for 3 hours on a layover and watched about 10% of the people freaking out. 99% of the time it was over nothing."
Pros: "The beet salad and the bouillabaisse were both excellent. The flight attendants were attentive and helpful. Wide selection of entertainment choices."
Cons: "Our connection from Zurich arrived as boarding had begun in Reykjavik. When we arrived at the gate, it looked like business class had already been called, so there was HUGE mob gathered about the gate including small children. An employee worked her way through the crowd randomly checking passports and marking boarding passes. Eventually we made it onto the shuttle which drove us out to the plane. I wouldn't like to fly Icelandair overnight because I wouldn't be able to sleep at all in the business class seats since they don't recline that much."
Pros: "The seats were comfortable and the food we ordered was good. The staff was friendly and professional. The landing was smooth."
Cons: "We had a light that kept flickering above us and you couldn’t adjust it and no way to control the air flow."
Pros: "On time, comfortable, smooth and easy flights"
Cons: "Everything was fine no complaints"
Pros: "The inflight entertainment was really nice and enjoyed the Iceland layover information. Crew were professional and attentive."
Cons: "Felt like a budget airline, so don't expect any free snacks or the ability to carry on large backpacks that you normally could on other airlines."
Cons: "Iceland air should offer complimentary meals for overseas flights like our carriers United and Delta"
Pros: "A great atmosphere — friendly, welcoming. The free movies were especially helpful on a long trip (bring your own headphones)."
Cons: "The seats were less comfortable than some other airlines. I'm short (5'3") and the way they hinged when you recline didn't work for me. Also, SOME kind of free snack — peanuts? a cookie? — would be appreciated. But in general, a very good experience."
Pros: "Nice crew, spacious plane."
Cons: "The man sitting next to me was overserved alcohol (at least 8 mini bottles of vodka) and became very loud and inappropriate towards me. Maybe there should be a limit on serving alcohol when someone is very obviously drunk? No snacks offered for a 6 hour flight"
Pros: "Free movies and interesting Iceland travel videos, glacier water, peaceful music."
Cons: "I didn't like one mass line for all economy tickets when it came to boarding- I prefer airlines that call people to board by group. Less hectic."
Cons: "Airport in Iceland cannot accommodate the number of passengers that fly through there. Long lines, no seats, standing for hours. I won't fly Icelandic air through Rejikyvik again. Also the plane departing from IAD to Iceland was old and uncomfortable. Overall, I feel that I had to run the gauntlet of discomfort and tedium before I could actually enjoy my trip----as if the suffering was part of the package. This airport impacts the flight itself. Now we are supposed to accept an hours delay without apology as if that's ok. Standing in line at the airport for two hours in Iceland just makes me commit to traveling less and becoming more selective in my choice of airlines."
Pros: "The flight itself was nice. Love the free WiFi and entertainment options. Icelandair is one of the most comfortable flights I have been on."
Cons: "I am very upset with how icelandair handled luggage for our layover. Our layover was and overnight, 17.5 hour layover. Not a single staff member told us they would be withholding our bags for the entire layover. Not at check in, not during boarding, not when we landed. We had to figure it out ourselves by asking the baggage info, to which they responded with "if you wait 2 hours maybe it will come on the carousel and you can take it." Mind you it is 1:30 in the morning and we had already waited for an hour, not knowing this was the answer. I am extremely disappointed that we could not access our bags and that not a single staff member told us our bags would not come. I've never had a problem with icelandair until now and I strongly hope this does not happen again to anyone else."
Cons: "The airport was absolute chaos. No room to wait at the gate, poor communication, no info at the gate, late flights, people crammed into the bus for the plane. Seems the amount of travrlers has simply overwhelmed the airport staff and space. Hot cramped airplane and you have to pay for the most meager snack. By contrast, Jet Blue was spacious and comfortable. Unlikely to travel Icelandair in the future."
Pros: "Bird struck plane that we were about to board; maintenance crew thankfully determined to switch planes even though it would cause delays. Rather be safe than sorry!"
Cons: "Our checked bag never showed up at customs bag claim in NYC. To date (5 days after we arrived back home) the airlines still cannot locate our lost bag. In fact, our baggage tracking # was never registered under our names at check-in!!! Our delayed flight from Reykjavik caused us to miss our connecting flight back home, which the airline booked us in a hotel, but booked us in a hotel near LaGuardia even though flew into JFK. We never received our vouchers and were given verbal instruction. We had to arrange transportation ourselves to seek reimbursement later on, learning this after going from terminal to shuttle area, back to terminal after waiting for the shuttle that never arrived. Rooms weren't ready when we showed up at hotel at MIDNIGHT. Next day, domestic tickets could not be issued for our connecting flight, causing us to have to shuffle from terminal to terminal to resolve the ticketing issue with Iceland Air. Total nightmare of a trip."
Pros: "See above, all good reviews apply to all of my icelandair flights."
Cons: "See explanation above for previous flight. I wrote it in the wrong box and cannot copy and paste as I am completing this review on my phone."
Pros: "The entertainment was really terrific, selection was good and the equipment was brand new."
Cons: "I felt like it was bumpier than other flights I've been on. I know that's highly subjective and a product of weather but it felt like it was excessive. There wasn't a lot of communication about conditions from the flight crew like I've had on other flights. It took forever to board."
Pros: "Poor check inn , bad lounge , seats are worst ,food even dig can not eat , plane in bad shape airport in Iceland worst in works"
Cons: "Everything I do not like"
Pros: "I liked the selection of movies, food and drinks, it is mid-November, but the featured Christmas platter and beer Jöla was a perfect ending to a lovely vacation. Food and drinks are for purchase of course, but a reasonable amount for the quality and quantity. Flight was inexpensive, but comfortable for the six-hour flight. I did not have to pay for the 3 movies I watched. Plenty of free juice, water, soft drinks, hot tea and coffee. Not to mention that Keflavik airport has lots of good foods and drinks, all tax-free. Definitely flying with Icelandair again, especially when you have 2 free checked bags and 1 carry-on bag, plus personal bag for my precious camera and tripod during a winter vacation, is absolutely essential!"
Pros: "I loved the informative videos about Iceland! I had planned to watch them all, but my video screen stopped working for awhile. I thought about switching seats, but I ended up sharing headphones with my boyfriend and watching some movies instead."
Cons: "Seat 8G does not have a window."
Pros: "Seat was comfortable"
Cons: "In addition to the above when i finally got to JFK my luggage was still lost"
Pros: "The airline crew was very nice."
Cons: "No food on the flight."
Pros: "In flight entertainment"
Cons: "Poor communication"
Pros: "Crew was friendly and helpful."
Cons: "Boarding was a free for all.... After premium seating, no order, lots of confusion with people stuck in the aisles."
Pros: "Flight over was satisfactory."
Cons: "The terminal in Reykjavik was dangerously crowded at the "D" gate coming back. They charged me for food and a glass of wine on the return trip but not on the trip over. ???? The flight back was 1 1/2 hours late."
Pros: "the price is great, there's movies to watch through the flight"
Cons: "the seats are incredibly uncomfortable, the boarding process is a mess (no groups so everyone rushes to board at the same time, no lines), there's no food on a transatlantic flight. They were also extremely affected by the air traffic controller strike. On our way to Europe we missed an entire day having to get re-booked after missing our connection in Iceland. On the way back (this flight) we had a 17hr layover, and our flight back to the US was delayed 2 hours -- but we didn't have a connection to make in the US, so this didn't affect us that much, apart from being home two hours later. I probably will not fly Iceland Air again and would NOT recommend them."
Cons: "For a 5 hour flight (that turned into an 8 hour flight) no food was provided. when I finally broke down an paid for some it was minuscule and the crew member that brought it had attitude and was not polite."
Pros: "Service and comfort."
Cons: "It would be nice if both flights had vegetarian snacks and food options to accommodate this population of passengers. If 2 types of meals sre generally offered, it would be nice if both are not meat options, and one vegetarian."
Pros: "Good airline, great service, boarding process, on time departure and arrival"
Cons: "No complaints"
Cons: "Too cold on plane"
Cons: "Been on schedule"
Pros: "unexpectedly comfortable seat on this particular flight, unlike my previous flights to/from USA"
Pros: "On time departure, early by 30 min arrival."
Cons: "Low quality of food. Some flight attendant barely spoke English. Low choice in movies."
Pros: "Overall, the flight was good. Seats on the international flight could have been a bit more comfortable. Entertainment was available and satisfying. The meals were good. Crew was nice."
Pros: "Flight crew were nice plane arrived safely"
Cons: "They nickel and dime you. I paid for extra leg room and then on way over made me pay to check bag (which was supposed to be free) and way back switched planes so never got extra room and had to pay for bag as well and now have to fight for my money back. I don’t like the feeling of having to always pay. If you want people to not carry on so much stop charging (especially on international flights) to check bags."
Pros: "Nice and easy. Very uncomplicated."
Pros: "Food was good, many options with entertainment"
Cons: "The person making announcements mumbled and spoke too softly for someone who's announcing things on a flight. We couldn't understand half of everything being said. Also both flights departed late even though TAP reported them as "on time." We sat at the gate for almost an hour before departing with announcements at that time solely in a Portuguese - on a flight going to New York."
Pros: "Easy smooth transaction"
Pros: "The entertainment was good and the food was better than I expected."
Cons: "Bags restrictions without us knowing. Delayed flight but we still manage to get to our destination on time. The same did not happen before where I had to wait until 2am for my tap flight that was supposed to leave at 11:30pm. I have been flighting TAP for many years now and it used to be one of my favorite airlines. No longer is the case. Over the years there has been a decline on service."
Pros: "Entertainment and seat space were great."
Cons: "They somehow managed to lose the entire flights luggage"
Cons: "TV didn't work. A female attendant made me store my hat but didn't make a male passenger."
Pros: "Plane was good, service on board pretty good."
Cons: "Flight was delayed and we were never notified despite receiving multiple emails to ‘upgrade’ our flight. While checking in we attempted to upgrade 3 tickets to first class and were sent to 3 different areas in the airport with our luggage, having to wait in line each time. Didn’t provide vegaterian options on board. Weren’t given a gate ever after landing 5 hours late and were kept on board for half an hour making us miss a 2nd connection we had to rebook after the initial delay. A frustrating experience hat could have been made better with just some communication about what was going on."
Cons: "We were never prompted to pay for our check in baggage at the time of purchase and so when we showed up we were forced to pay 85 euros for one checked bag for an international flight on top of a ticket that already cost more than $250. The luggage restrictions were never shown previously. Will never fly TAP Portugal again."
Cons: "Lost luggage. Late arrival. Had to run."
Pros: "Good food. More or less on time."
Cons: "No electrical outlets."
Pros: "Entertainment was fine"
Cons: "Boarding was a mess, my seat recline was messed up so the button didn't do anything, but if I leaned back it would too... Flight crew was also not particularly friendly."
Pros: "There wasn't anything special to like compares to other good airlines. I would say crews attitudes and foods were alright."
Cons: "Doesn't have a USB cable to charge the phone and there were no perfume or toothbrush for the long journey. Also no apple juice."
Pros: "Friendly and helpful crew. Great food."
Pros: "The flight was uneventful."
Cons: "The food was edible. The entertainment display was old. Not much leg room."
Pros: "There was good variety of films and food was decent."
Cons: "(1) TAP has terrible customer service and support. Was told on check-in that flight did not include checked luggage which is bizzare/unreal for an international flight especially since I also paid to upgrade my ticket. Even in explaining to me the person on the phone was rude. This was very disappointing as I had such an amazing trip to end on this sour note. (2) The boarding process took forever. They made us line up about 45 minutes before we actually boarded. So we were all standing around as opposed to being seated in waiting area. We did not board until after our take-off time. (3) Seats were really tight, uncomfortable and don't recline much."
Cons: "Same as inbound flight"
Cons: "No USB port"
Pros: "Flight was on time and landed safely."
Cons: "Boarding was quite chaotic. Seats were very cramped."
Pros: "The food was good and there was a decent variety of things to watch."
Cons: "Having another TSA check at our gate at the last minute just because we were going to New York, the whole process made our boarding time late and our take off time pushed back even though they had 3 hrs to figure it out. The main flight stuardess in charge was rude and kept giving attitude to people when they asked questions because half the people on the flight didn't understand Portuguese. I wasn't allowed to pick my seat on the website so we ended up in a middle row. The person i was traveling with is over 6 ft and could not comfortably fit in the seats. Thankfully no one sat on the end so we were able to spread out between 3 seats. The entire experience made us not want to fly into Portugal again."
Pros: "Good entertainment system"
Cons: "Flight crew could have been more polite"
Pros: "The food and air conditioning"
Cons: "I purposely got a seat in the front row for extra leg room next to my two friends whose tickets I paid for. The TV in my seat was broken and I therefore could not at all watch TV unless I moved to another seat. I ended up not being able to sit with my friends for the entire seven-hour flight. The flight was delayed multiple times. The first time it was delayed because they were doing an extra security search by hand in the Gated area awaiting to board the plane. I have never seen this in my life and it was definitely started. Then we were on board the plane for almost an hour before they made an announcement that they found a broken part on the plane and had to switch planes. It was all very fishy. Quite frankly that I want my money back."
Cons: "The movies could have been better. Food was average."
Pros: "Seats were big and comfortable with lots of leg room."
Cons: "No entertainment on first 3 hr intra-Europe flight. Food was not good."
Pros: "Entertainment! Loved having such a wide selection of things to watch on the screen at my seat. Such a nice luxury to be able to watch a movie, a show, check the status of the flight/plane/distance/time/map, and more."
Cons: "The food wasn't that appetizing. It actually gave me upset stomach for the rest of the flight. I was in the bathroom 3x during the flight and I usually don't use the restroom more than once during any given flight. I didn't like that when asking for a drink of water, they only give a half full cup of room-temperature water. On an 8 hour flight, I get dehydrated and could drink 2 water bottles alone. I don't like to be a nuisance to the attendants so I only asked for water twice. I just wish they would provide small personal bottles per customer. I also have never flown on TAP before so I wasn't aware of anything like how to call an attendant using the touch-screen or even that watching movies was free. It should be said over the intercom at the beginning of the flight."
Pros: "everything was great"
Cons: "they had some video problems early in the flight but had it fixed about a third into the flight"
Cons: "Flight left without us"
Cons: "Poor policy regarding musical instrument. Probably the only company asking to pay a special fee on hold or to buy an extra seat for a regular guitar. Ridiculous."
Pros: "I had a flight from Madrid --> Lisbon airport with a final connection from Lisbon --> NYC JFK and we were delayed in Madrid therefore arriving at boarding time of our other flight in Lisbon. The crew was so professional and prepared that when we landed in Lisbon there was a bus that brought about 25 of us who were connecting with final destination to JFK to the closest door to go through passport control and board onto our flight to JFK that they held for a good 30-45 minutes until all of us made our connection. Very professional and organized. Much appreciated that I didn't miss my final connection! Love flying TAP and will continue to do so!"
Pros: "Andrera Araijo was extremely friendly, attentive and energetic. She smiled through out the entire flight. Whether she was attending to me or a fellow passenger it was all smiles. She definitely made smile. God bless you Andrera!"
Cons: "attendant kept waking me up to put my seat belt on while i was sleeping"
Pros: "Great planes. Very professional and helpful staff. Lots of leg room"
Cons: "Lobster appetizer was dry, hard, and tough. Steak dinner was prepared nicely, but of medium- low quality meat. Announcements are not heard in headphones, which in emergency situations could be dangerous. Noise reducing headphones supplier are effective in the noise reduction function, but not high quality audio resolution, with some dialogue intelligible. Business class seat wasn't a full recline as are those of most competitors, but it was comfortable. I didn't see any snack offerings that most other airlines have available between meals."
Pros: "The captain and the crew were excellent."
Cons: "Upgrade the entertainment system."
Cons: "The seats were not comfortable. It hurt my back."
Pros: "Big space between seats. Best screen entertainment."
Cons: "Food was only average. Especially fish."
Cons: "Being sat in a middle seat. With that being said, it was OK. No problems."
Cons: "some chaos at boarding, with redundant passport control. Upon arrival, we were held for 45 min at JFK, as the gate wasn't ready and the crew had the engines running and fumes penetrated the cabin that made me almost sick. I guess that's not much of a TAP fault, but it was a bad finish of an otherwise uneventful flight..."
Pros: "took forever to get to international I am elderly and I was totally wiped out no help anywhere, on the flight itself only the steward was nice the ladies were very grumpy and never smiled."
Pros: "My check in was by far the easiest it has ever been on any of the international flights I've taken over the years. This was my first flight with TAP Portugal and I will certainly by happy to fly with them again. The next time, I'm going to take advantage of their offer to stop over in Lisboa."
Pros: "Again, the crew was delightful!"
Cons: "Customer service to get a veggie option on the flight was really hard to work with. We did get veggie options but they were not very good at all. Movie selection is terrible, but the screen worked a little better, more leg room on this flight than the flight to Lisbon."
