Pros: "The food is good. The seats for regular economy are a bit more spacious. They also have some deal with fast food restaurants, Mos Burger and Yoshinoya so sometimes you can get their air version of the fast-food meals. I had Yoshinoya and it was pretty good. The entertainment was okay, the only 2 things I wanted to watch was John Wick 2 and Guardians of the Galaxy 2, but the movies change every month so it was probably a bad batch. Also free toothbrushes and toothpaste available on the plane and a self service snack area. Overall it was great."

Cons: "The food was ok but not very good for as the meals go but they did fill me up with drinks lol"
Pros: "Nothing at all"
Cons: "I purchased a flight through one of the participating vendors on kayak for a major airline and accidentally chose the wrong departure date. I never received a confirmation email and therefore missed the flight. I understand and take full responsibility for booking the wrong departure date but when I tried to change it after missing the flight I was told that the airline policy was to charge a $300 change fee plus $30 for the third-party vendor. Because this was booked as a round-trip this vendor was attempting to charge me $330 plus the full price purchase of a new ticket as the "change fee". For some reason I was unable to explain to the person on the phone that it made no sense for me to pay full price for a ticket plus give that vendor an extra $330. I was forced to eat the entire round-trip ticket and of course save $330 by just hanging up and booking a new flight. I have course book a new flight directly with the airline. I could not even fly standby on the next flight with the airline because they told me they were unable to assist me in anyway because I booked through a third-party vendor. There were plenty of seats available on the next flight and I would've been able to fly standby had I purchased directly from the airline. Never again"

Pros: "Staff were excellent and very friendly, service was great, and the entertainment on board was very good."

Their excuse was that both the kayaks and paddle bags were 2 inches too long. .. TWO INCHES!!!!!! We had record of the person we talked to and the time and date, but none of that seemed to matter. It caused A HUGE INCONVENIENCE for us since we are in Zambia for 6 weeks without our gear to paddle one of the most challenging rivers in the world... the Zambezi. Now we are constantly trying to acquire the proper equipment with very little success. We run a nonprofit called the Montana Kayak Academy which provides free whitewater instruction to youth between 8 &18 yrs old and we will be sure to tell everyone we know to NOT TRAVEL WITH EITHER VIRGIN ATLANTIC OR BRITISH AIRWAYS.... EVER!!! VERY DISAPPOINTED! !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"

Cons: "Seats need more padding"
Pros: "Seat Legroom Comfort Food Service Crew ... amazing!!!"
Cons: "the seats are not as comfortable as those on new planes"
Cons: "I found the seats on this Virgin Atlantic A340 flight from LHR (London Heathrow) to LAX (Los Angeles), an eleven hour flight, to be unacceptable. The seats were very crowded. I am six feet tall, and was very uncomfortable all during the flight. I could not sit with my knees together. I had to spread my knees to sit comfortably. Holding that position for eleven hours was very uncomfortable. Anyone taller than me would have even more trouble. Also, every seat has a very large box underneath, I presume for the audio/video system. This is a terrible location. There is very little room to stow anything. But much worse, I couldn't straighten my right leg. All-in-all, I found the seat situation totally unacceptable. I will likely never fly Virgin Atlantic again because of this."
Pros: "Great food/service/options, nice crew, on-time/early"
Cons: "Entertainment system is quite aged, but selections were OK"
Pros: "Virgin always provides the best, friendliest, coolest service!"
Cons: "The food is pretty low quality, but I understand the logistics constraints of feeding many people in a small space without kitchen facilities! Also the wine choices are superior to other airlines and I look forward to that. I normally plan ahead and bring my own meals whenever traveling by air."
Pros: "free wine, good food, and friendly cabin crew? what more could you want? oh, a good variety of entertainment. I watched two documentaries and "The Lobster" a great choice, never would have seen it otherwise."

Pros: "Great service, comfortable and punctual"
Cons: "45 minute delay on runway after landing was very very frustrating."
Pros: "The staff was nice. Boarding was quick and easy. Flight left on time and arrived early. Although the entertainment system had many options, going through lists and playing games required a lot of tapping, and in some cases pushing to make the system work. I felt like I had a woodpecker sitting behind me pushing on my head non-stop for over two hours. I was starting to go insane! Besides, it was so loud near the back of the plane that I couldn't hear anything through my cheap headphones."
Cons: "We could not eat any of the food. My son, my husband and I do not eat and/or are allergic to gluten, dairy, corn, soy and other food additives - as I mentioned above. Please have an option of food not swimming in sauces or cheeses. Plain organic chicken breast with steamed rice pilaf and steamed carrots would be nice. Maybe some steamed red potatoes and a piece of steak. An organic green apple for dessert. Forget the gluten, dairy, sugar or sauces that ruin a perfectly good ham or chicken and lettuce, tomato wrap! Or a salad swimming in dressing. We need to eat protein, not gluten for breakfast. Why not a hard boiled head!"
Pros: "Staff were friendly and flight was clean. Lots of movies to watch."
Cons: "The seats gets smaller each year. For a seven hour flight, the seats are very uncomfortable, no space to move. The flight with the hand held remote control TV had poor visual quality. It was hard to watch movies with dark background."

Pros: "Great food and movie offerings. On time and courteous staff."
Cons: "Cramped chairs- less leg room than Delta. Also, annoying that buying through Kayak left us without a code to be able to check in online, meaning we were left to be assigned seats at the airport."
Cons: "The food I had food poisoning"
Pros: "Extremely uncomfortable seats in the Economy section and a very confusing remote control to maneuver the entertainment screen. The crew was excellent so it's not their fault. The food was passable but those white bread rolls got to go. My luggage didn't arrive so let's hope they bring it today."
Pros: "Made the long flight bearable to have good food, drinks, and entertainment provided."
Pros: "Everything was great though navigating through the inflight entertainment could have been easier..."
Pros: "Seems like they are always bringing you something. Very friendly. Great entertainment to choose from. Plenty of leg room even for a tall person like myself (at least compared to other airlines)."
Pros: "Flight D001 (Delta / Virgin, LHR to JFK) Staff were terrific. The food was the best I've had so far (and I fly a lot!) The choice of entertainment was varied and excellent. Flight was smooth and captain was very communicative."
Cons: "Chair kept snapping back to position from recline (33E). Man behind me kept banging on the screen behind my head Inspite of announcement not to do do from cabin crew. If they could catch ppl doing that and say something that would be great :-) (although I realize if course the this isn't their fault.)"
Pros: "Good service, comfortable seats and quick flight, great combination for a long trip."
Pros: "Food, crew, entertainment, captain announcements."
Pros: "I am a disables person who can not walk more that a few feet without assistance. I was helped all the way to my seat which was great. The Terminal employees were very helpful"

Pros: "The service was really excellent"
Cons: "The service was really excellent in every things the staffs onboard very friendly and active, the food was very good too. The flight very comfortable."
Pros: "This was my first experience with Virgin Atlantic, and I was highly satisfied. I really appreciated the large selection of movies and TV shows, and the option of vegetarian and vegan meals (nothing fancy, but solid for airline food)."
Pros: "The flight departed on time arrived half hour early. No baggage problems. Nice crew. Good food."
Cons: "It was a bit older aircraft. Seats were a bit hard not as comfortable. Entertainment options could be better with more movie titles."
Pros: "Pressurising on new plane seemed to make long trips less tiring."
Cons: "New plane's weird electronic window shades had us in darkness with sun up high! Unsettling. Couldn't operate the switch under the window. Very noisy systems such as flaps, wheels, etc. Screaming, grinding banging noises. Address system unhearable & useless."
Pros: "New aircraft. Very comfortable seats even in the economy class. Great crew."
Cons: "There could have been more options for Bollywood movies."
Pros: "The staff at the desk at the airport as well as the crew on board were very gracious and helpful. Excellent job, atmosphere very friendly in the skies with a great and nice crew. It was my first time flying with VIrgin Atlantic and not my last time definitely. Thank you so much for making it such a pleasant experience for me."
Cons: "Everything, in other words an excellent organization, company. Great job to you all !"
Pros: "the plane didn't crash."
Cons: "honesty. 29 minute flight took 3 hours. first they blamed it on waiting for luggage, then they likely realized there were no connecting fllights, so that excuse didn't work, then they were 'closing the cargo doors' for 45 minutes, then they had to de-ice as the plane had now sat for 4 hours instead of 45 minutes, had it left on time."
Pros: "Great entertainment options, best in class"
Cons: "Earlier food service for more sleep"
Pros: "Like the pleasantries from the Delta crew"
Cons: "More snacks :) !!!!"

Pros: "Boarded in good time, friendly crew, flight was comfortable, entertainment was good - and most importantly, landed on time!"

Cons: "I couldn't get both of my boarding passes printed in London so I had to get it from an agent in Minneapolis. I hate that it's so hard to get a seat assigned and a boarding pass before the trip."
Pros: "The delta crew both ways between Portland and London was excellent! They saw to our every need and were smiling every air mile of the way. Plane"
Cons: "Need to have food choices available for those with allergies. Almost everything had gluten and soy in it and I am very allergic to those. I had to give away all snacks and most of my food. Even in comfort+ class the seats are tiny with little legroom. Also, please clean the bathroom every few hours"
Pros: "Despite boarding late, and sitting on the tarmac for half an hour since we missed our take off time, and having to move passengers around to balance the weight on the plane, we made it home alive."
Cons: "We landed over half an hour late. Flight attendants needed to move passengers to balance the weight on the small plane, and asked for "volunteers." When there were none, the FA stood in the aisle and said we just weren't going to take off if nobody volunteered. They should have just MOVED people."

Pros: "The crew where extremely friendly, helpful and visible. As the flight was being boarded the gate agent saw me with my cane and she upgraded me to a seat closer to the front of the plane without being asked. Those extra little touches are appreciated"
Pros: "Crew had pleasant personalities.. not stoic annoyed faces"
Cons: "People should wait their turn getting off the planes “Wait until the seat in front of you is empty,” says the elementary school teacher .."
Pros: "The crew were kind and courteous. The seat was comfortable."
Cons: "Crew was rude and made everything seem like a chore."
Pros: "Decent service"
Cons: "I booked with KLM (sky team) two separate return bookings on via SKY TEAM JFK > heathrow (delta) Heathrow > Amsterdam (klm) On the return leg, I couldn’t check my bag all the way through to JFK even though I stayed on SKY TEAM carriers. That should be possible, otherwise the value of staying in SKY TEAM isn’t as valuable to me."
Cons: "One of the older male flight attendants was not polite. Got a ride, short response when asking him for anything."
Pros: "Good films"
Cons: "Seats cramped, legroom bad"
Cons: "I had the feeling they were short on crew staff, they were barely checking and I called them a couple of times, the blue light was on but no one came to check what I needed. At first the reading lights were not working and they got those reset at least. One choice of food was not available anymore once they got to our seats."
Pros: "The in-flight entertainment and seats were comfortable. They gave us complimentary lunch as well, which was super helpful. I will be flying again to NYC with Delta :)"
Pros: "The variety of what you could listen to or watch. Liked the way the seats reclined. Plenty of leg room (I am short)."
Pros: "Crew was good. Flight was early."
Cons: "Poor booking experience."
Pros: "There were alot of good movies to choose from, and the food wasn't bad."
Cons: "It's always very uncomfortable to sit on a plane for a long time, but that's nobody's fault"
Pros: "The food was excellent, as well as the flight attendants."
Pros: "Crew, food was good, comfort"
Cons: "The boarding .. We had to climb the steps to get in .. But the crew apologised"
Pros: "Extra leg room with Sky priority"
Cons: "We upgraded to Sky priority but we're not allowed to load with Sky priority. They made us wait for Zone 3. We also did not get the designated overhead space we paid for and had to put our bags under the seat in front of us. A bit disappointing to pay $240 extra and not get what we paid for."
Cons: "The entry into the Atlanta airport after landing was somewhat chaotic. We were backed up circling before landing for ~ 1 hour and there seemed to be an unusually large number of folks trying to get through customs/security - noe Delta's fault but an unwelcome experience after being in the air for 8+ hours."
Pros: "Super friendly and attentive crew. Good food. Nice new seats. Great tv entertainment options!"
Pros: "I like Delta empowering women."
Pros: "Meal quality has improved"
Pros: "Plenty of movies and music to entertain"
Cons: "Economy seats have no leg room and seats are very uncomfortable to your back during a 8hr flight. Flight attendants skipped rows for drinks, snacks, etc and would have to be called back. Paying close to a thousand per ticket, you'd expect a little better experience but oh well."
Pros: "Service was good. Attendants polite. Information good."
Pros: "There wasn't much to like. Just about everything was wrong. The plane was a newish 787, so it didn't feel old. Boarding went well because we complained about how tired we, at 70+, were because the flight was late and we'd been standing up; this resulted in us being boarded with some of the latish priority passengers."
Cons: "Everything, really. The plane was very crowded; small seats, little leg room. The meals were mediocre and the cabin staff were just barely the good side of unhelpful, officious and unfriendly The flight was inexplicably 2 hours or more late in excellent weather. No apologies given, the flight that was originally scheduled for 8 pm left close to 11 pm. While boarding the only light is a purplish ambient lighting that made it impossible to read anything, including the safety material, until the inflight entertainment was loaded up (the lights are only controlled through software-actuated virtual buttons on the screen). The inflight entertainment system is hard to use, too, designed by idiots for use by geniuses. But the very worst thing was the stress caused by Virgin Atlantic in just about guaranteeing that we would miss this flight. On our outbound voyage in January, VA, for reasons nobody knows, booked an ADDITIONAL leg from JHB to CPT on BA at 12:30 pm, even though we were already ON the earlier 9:30 BA flight we'd booked and paid for. Then, when we didn't show up for this spurious flight (because we were already in the air) we didn't book (BA swears they have evidence that VA made this booking), our return flight CPT to JBG three months later was cancelled WITHOUT OUR KNOWLEDGE. If I hadn't been interested in knowing, the day before the flight, if the return BA flight had a meal, I would have showed up at the CPT airport in April and discovered that I had no way to get to the VA flight in JHB! As it was I spent an entire day trying to get back on the flight I'd already paid for. I advise EVERYONE who uses VA to reconfirm flights over and over. There is still no explanation for this. I will never NEVER fly VA again. They are not to be trusted."
Cons: "Entertainment was working, watching movie when they said done didn't have do they were resetting system. They tried twice taking over an hour and it never came back on for anyone..... :("
Pros: "Boarding and deplaning were efficient. Crew was good. Seats were comfortable."
Cons: "Seat was near the restroom and there was an odor for the second half of the flight. Issues with the A/V - hum in the headphones and the touch screen only worked intermittently. Cabin temperature was a bit cold."
Pros: "Delta is known to be one of the best airlines and they stand up to it in every flight."
Pros: "Seats are crowded together, nowhere to move, no storage, reclined seat is in your face for 10 hrs!"
Cons: "The plane, the seats the food"
Pros: "Good movie selection. Attentive crew."
Cons: "Lufthansa has poor boarding process causing a delay in our flight. Because our next connection flight (ALSO THROUGH LUFTHANSA) was in 40 mins per their booking, we arrived at the gate just prior to take off to find our flight had been given away and we had “missed” that flight. As a result, we were placed on a flight 4 hours later, resulting in a dangerous attempt at reaching our hotel at 11pm. Will never fly Lufthansa again."
Pros: "Boarding was fast and practical"
Cons: "Food and beverage"
Cons: "Over 2 hours late, and this flight has been late 6 of the last 7 days"
Pros: "There wasn’t anything to highlight as good. On this trip except LHR was organized and clean. The boarding was a free for all after the elderly and young had been boarded footstep as they should."
Cons: "The ground staff were rude and officious"
Pros: "Lufthansa is always reliable. Flight was fine. The staff were kind and efficient in their jobs."
Cons: "There is no inflight entertainment on these flight but I brought my own."
Cons: "I missed my connecting flight because my flight was late. I had to get to my destination for a wedding."
Pros: "Plane was super nice and new and crew was great!"
Pros: "The Munich airport presented a startling contrast to heathrow! Both the flight from London and from Munich were very nice. I was so tired that I am sure I missed a lot."
Cons: "More varieties of whisky on board"
Pros: "None of the above. I actually liked nothing about this trip. Took off at London in time for Frankfurt, arrived early, but missed the connection to Tel Aviv. So I had to be routed to Munich to catch a 10:30 pm flight, which arrives at 3 am Sunday. So I wasted the entire day, starved, exhausted."
Cons: "Proper connection time. I lost the entire day, and now have to get a cab for $100 instead of my colleague meeting me. 3 am is impossible. And I am still not in Tel Aviv."
Pros: "The crew were super friendly. There was plenty of space and I slept for a few hours"
Pros: "on time."
Cons: "They made me weigh my carry on, but virtually no one else, despite the fact that my bag was the same size as most and smaller that others! I honestly felt like one of the gate agents were picking on me."
Cons: "a bit late"
Pros: "Staff were kind and courteous."
Cons: "Late departure and uncomfortable seats."
Cons: "There was not enough room for all the people’s cabin size luggage. They allowed people to get on board with big coats once they’re in the plain they take off the coats and place them up. Those coats take the same space as a small suitcase. I asked the fly attendants for assistance and they didn’t even pretend to care about the situation. I had to put my luggage under the seat for the entire flight, which ended up reducing the very reduced legroom. What this airline is trying to do is; to charge passengers twice for cabin size luggage. This has been my worst experiences with airlines. Lufthansa is definitely an airline to avoid."
Pros: "Flight crew made up time to arrive on time despite late arrival. They are pretty amazing - they got a plane hundreds of miles in the same time it took the ground crew to get my bag from the plane to the baggage claim."
Cons: "Frankfurt is just an awful airport. Too many landings and not enough infrastructure. Also tired of planes having to park thousands of yards from the terminal. The time to get the bag is as long as the flight. Each about 55 minutes. There is very little about German efficiency here."
Pros: "The food out of everything"
Cons: "Customer service , the air craft , the blankets"
Pros: "The crew's efficiency and friendliness"
Cons: "Having to fly to Germany to come to San Diego"
Pros: "We only had carryons and they took the. From us before boarding the plane."
Cons: "They should tell people that there is delay and that they will take their carry one"
Cons: "Online check-in did not work. When I checked in at the airport, I received only a middle seat."
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Almost everything"
Pros: "Once again, the in-flight crew was excellent. The flight was good, but no entertainment is provided."
Cons: "Another late take off, probably because the incoming connections were late. So it was good that the airline delayed the connecting flights. However, this leg of the trip was so late that I barely made it to third leg of the trip. A huge problem is that each of these international airports require that you go through the security check again. For that reason, connecting legs of trips through these airports should not be scheduled so close together. Heathrow is the worst, with security staff that, at best, don’t care that you have a close connection to make and just ignore your pleas to speed up the process, and at worst, are just plain rude."
Pros: "Only an hour and a half but perfect service and even a nice meal. Because of the delay there were a lot of questions to the crew but they managed to keep travelers calm and happy."
Cons: "Flight was delayed but that had nothing to with the crew and the service."
Pros: "Comfortable seats, good legroom."
Cons: "Slight delay."
Pros: "Made up most of the time. Latrobe leaving due to queue."
Cons: "That I did not know in advance there was a snack. Would have odered vegan as it was had nothing."
Cons: "At the gates they said that nobody could bring more than one piece of carry-on items Dash completely catching Everyone by surprise. They took a backpack from me, and it has now been lost."
Cons: "No bridge in Frankfurt - long taxi and then 15 minute bus ride to the terminal; had to go through security again; mad dash to catch connecting flight (which also had the 15 minute drive to the plane - again, no gate in the terminal! Shambles!"
Cons: "They cancelled my flight"
Cons: "No body helped me. My first flight got delayed and missed my connecting flight. People were rude and showed that they didn’t care. I had to wait 4 hours for the next flight. I received little compensation"
Pros: "The counter staff in Heathrow was great"
Pros: "Everything was perfect ... pilots are so good and professional..!!)"
Cons: "The flight"
Pros: "On time and good service"
Pros: "Was great,on time,no issues,they send me the flight connection gate on my email.*****"
Pros: "Good attitude"
Cons: "The flight took off 2 hours late they must have known it was going to be that late, yet they lied saying that it was on time, forcing you to come to the airport early, then when you get to the airport they did the - oh its going to be 20 minutes late, no 40, no 1.5 hours late, heck it will be 2 hours late etc. Micro-tight seat pitch - I could barely sit in the seats."
Pros: "After the delay I was given a spot on the direct flight so I didn't have to deal with the complications of the connecting flight. The staff was nice and helpful."
Pros: "Fast and efficient boarding"
Pros: "Easy check-in and helpful staff. I would absolutely fly with Lufthansa again"
Pros: "It was good the checking desk person was polite and done her best to put get me on to British Airways flight to get to my destination on the same day."
Cons: "But we waited tilll 12.30pm still flight took off at 14.00 and arrive in Dubai at 23.50pm instead of 22.30pm person went home who suppose to pick me up. I got to the place I was staying at 01.39am which was very uncomfortable. I will never fly again with Lufthansa Airline it use to like British Airways but definitely they have lost the customer touch."
Cons: "The plane lands a considerable distance from the airport, you walk across the tarmac in the rain to a bus, and then the bus ride is almost 15 minutes. I expect Lufthansa to have a better berth at Frankfurt."
Cons: "Flight was 30 min delayed . When we landed, the jetway was someone mispositioned and it took even longer to get us off the plane - nearly 1 hour late. Missed my dinner appointment as a result and generally bad start to my trip to Munich . Very disappointed ."
Pros: "Nie odbyl size powodu opuznienia samolotu z Chicago do Londynu"
Pros: "Timing and the cost was good. Crew were friendly. Did. Or feel a racist service like in Germany itself."
Cons: "No entertainment. Too much hand luggage even though we had the allowed size bags but it seemed that people use more than the allowed limit."
Pros: "Was informed that boarding would be delayed but began within minutes. Arriva time was spot on"
Cons: "Most cramped seat I've ever sat in. Couldn't even sit because my knees hit the seat in front, before my but was in the chair."
Pros: "Even on such a short flight I got a sandwich. It was a salmon sandwich which I never had on any other flights. They usually serve cheese or ham or chicken in the Middle East. It was nice to have something different and nutritious."
