Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "During COVID there was little attempt to distance passengers during security checks, boarding and onboard. Crew did not inforce mask policy. Fellow passengers were inconsiderate, loud, littered just throwing food wrappers and trash on the ground - crew did nothing."

Pros: "The crew was great"

Pros: "The crew was really great and helpful"
Cons: "Only thing that could have been better was ginger ale."

Cons: "On time departure would be nice. Overall very pleasant experience. Water and Swiss chocolates were served during under an hour flight. Thank you Swiss!"

Pros: "Crew was very accommodating."
Cons: "Flight was overbooked which caused an hour delay."

Cons: "Not having to go to a different, further away airport because I missed my connection. Not having my luggage go missing and not get delivered within 24 hours."

Cons: "There was a major delay - we never were told why and no one apologized. It was so stressful to make my connection."

Pros: "The movie"
Cons: "More space! The crew could have been nicer"

Pros: "plane and crew were fine. Didn’t use any entertainment."

This is my sixth time traveling to Switzerland from San Francisco on Swiss....Their service in my opinion remains excellent......The cabin crew was cheerful friendly yet remained very efficient at the same time... The food was very good, , The two meals that comes with one's Ticket still also comes with complimentary beverage service .... and even a warm moist towel is offered towards the end of the flight ... not bad for a seat in coach ...."
Cons: "I had no complaints except that there was a 40+ minute delay in receiving our checked baggage..... this could have been a problem With the airport ground crew at Zurich airport ....."

Pros: "Always on time and professional crew!"

Pros: "I treated myself to Swiss Business (for a second time) for this trip and it was terrific. From the comfortable seats, the fabulous dinner, the outstanding Swiss staff from the baggage check to the wonderful flight attendants, the flight to Zürich and the return trip to Boston was amazing! I cannot say enough good things about Swiss. I would love to be able to fly Swiss Business again when I travel to Zürich in September 2019."

Pros: "EXCELLENT LEG ROOM"

Pros: "Staff was polite. Offering water once in a while was nice. Seat was comfortable."
Cons: "The promotional video for Swiss Air was way too long. Should have a way to bypass it. I understand being forced to watch the safety video but the promotional video is annoying."

Pros: "One on the plane service and food were very good. In flight movies limited in number of choices"
Cons: "Flight delayed over an hour because they couldn't fuel the plane and had to wait for trucks. Did not update the board at the gate with boarding times and people waited on long lines unnecessarily because they did not update the boarding times. Very frustrating."

Cons: "Cheaper baggage rates"

Cons: "Information on when we can check in on upcoming flights. Other airlines we have booked for flights will email us 24 hours prior to departure. Virgin Atlantic did not. I had to call and I was directed to their web site and was able to check in on line. Thanks"

Pros: "I had one of the few empty seats next to me."
Cons: "The food is awful. Not enough toilets."

Cons: "My bag was damaged in transit"

Pros: "Provides the service you'd expect from an international carrier. Boarded on time, seat actually reclines, meals, baggage, seat assignments are included in the price. Staff treat you well and the price isn't bad."
Cons: "Virgin website is slow and not intuitive. Couldn't get seat assignment until i was at the gate. No explanation why. Boarding announcements delivered via ESP. Half of the passengers were still in the boarding area because no one heard announcements. Arrived 30 min early but had to wait on the tarmac for 45 min for a parking gate. Baggage delivery at JFK took forever."

Pros: "Everything except the food"
Cons: "The food is atrocious. Even if I have to pay to upgrade my meal, I would..."

Pros: "Food and snacks!!!!!"

Cons: "Missed connection to SFO"

Pros: "Great movie selection"
Cons: "They need softer seats...had to stand half the time"

Cons: "Queue at boarding gate for upper class ticket holders Bus transfer to plane - Virgin is not a LoCo airline! Upper Class Service was slow - understaffed?"

Pros: "We paid extra for exit row seats so we had good leg space"
Cons: "The seats are so small that only your backside fits on it and we are not big people. There is no support for the thigh and I had severe cramps after leaving the aircraft. The flight to LA with Virgin Australia was far more comfortable."

Pros: "The cabin crew were excellent!"
Cons: "I paid extra for Economy Delight seats for me and my wife. Shortly after take-off, our calm and comfortable more or less empty section of the aircraft was colonised by an extended family of Orthodox Jews in a kind of airborne West Bank situation. They weren’t in our section of the cabin at all to start with, and I don’t know why they were apparently able to get a free upgrade that I had to pay £100 for. We went from being in an almost empty cabin to being basically sat in the middle of an Orthodox Jewish kindergarten. It was awful! They were noisy, messy, were constantly getting in and out of their seats, the back of my seat kept getting kicked, and there was even a baby crawling around the aisle. We were surrounded. I have no idea whether this is characteristic of Orthodox Jewish family life, or just a completely inconsiderate family. They didn’t exactly ruin my flight, but they didn’t make it enjoyable either. I asked to be moved. The cabin crew were great and acknowledged the difficulty of the situation. My wife lost her window seat but at least we still had the legroom and peace and quiet."

Pros: "Entertainment Meal service and quality"

Pros: "Crew very friendly"
Cons: "Seats and legroom poor if you’re six feet tall"

Pros: "Complimentary newspaper Food service"
Cons: "Overhead reading light"

Pros: "Friendly cabin crew, excellent food and drinks. Very happy with the service we received"

Pros: "Free everything...food, wine, spirits, movies, etc. Nice crew!"
Cons: "Seats a little hard, main dinner dish was a little odd but okay."

Pros: "Checking in at the counter even I wasn't allocated a seat but the gentleman was very humble and polite."
Cons: "The fact that I was told I would be given a seat at the boarding gate. I got to the airport very early to get a good seat only to be that and was given a very uncomfortable seat where I couldn't stretch my legs well because of a box on the floor situated to my left leg and to make the matter even more annoying my screen was not working which I was forced to take one heavy meant-so-called laptop. And finally cabin crew were lacking serious customer service and when u ask for something they were just so reluctant to deliver as if we were given a free ticket or something. May it be noted that my ticket was not that cheap to be treated in such manner."

Pros: "Cool flight, mainly because it was empty. Good food"
Cons: "Seats weren't that comfortable. Entertainment sucked because the screen functions were terrible, very difficult"

Cons: "Too much food - not enough time to sleep in comfort!"

Pros: "Quite a big choice of movies and TV shows to watch, more than enough for an eight hour flight. Normal headphone plugs so you can use your own."
Cons: "I booked together with my wife, yet we were allocated seats apart and were not able to be reassigned together. The leg room was so tight that I could not pick up things off the floor without putting my head in the next persons lap. Though the cabin crew were smiley and friendly, it was hard to get their attention when needed. The PA system is much louder than the entertainment, so announcements were ear bursting. The dinner selections ran out early, so a good proportion did not get their choice."

Cons: "Food was terrible"

Pros: "We really enjoyed flying with Virgin and so made sure we booked into a Virgin flight for this trip and not delta. The food was good, entertainment good when it worked."
Cons: "We got told that our flight number had changed from VS103 to VS4049 but still a Virgin flight. Only when we checked in we found out we were now flying with Delta and number was now DL285. Was not happy as wanted to fly with Virgin.The seats were ok but the entertainment system went down mid film. Took an hour to get started again. The games didn't work. Staff were a bit grumpy."

Cons: "We were told over the phone that we could bring our kayaks with us to Africa but the airport staff denied not only our kayaks, but also our paddles which were in a standard ski bag. 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! !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"

Pros: "Cabin crew were friendly and attentive. Flight was on time and we got to Atlanta early"
Cons: "Could do with more legroom. Food not the greatest"

Pros: "I had a great experience from start to end of my trip. Most of the staff were pleasant and professional. Food wasn't okay and red wine on flight from Heathrow was delicious."
Cons: "The red wine on the flight from Lagos was too sharp. That is the regular one served on virgin flight so was glad when I tasted the new one served on the flight from Heathrow, thinking it's been changed!"

Pros: "NA"

Pros: "the crew were the friendliest I've flown with (Irish & British)... the lighting was very relaxing and the continuous snack service was much appreciated (especially ice cream).. gonna try premium economy next time as the seats looked even better..."
Cons: "Vera the entertainment screen was very good but there were no newly released movies, everything seemed to be a couple of months old... the leather headrest was comfortable but kept slipping down to behind my neck, would be nice if it was lockable in position.."

Pros: "Everything went very fast and smooth. I didn't have to queue for the boarding. The Sita were very comfortable, the crew very friendly and halepful and the selection of the movies A+."

Cons: "My headphones and those of my neighbors did not work."

Pros: "We were inmiddle seats -not our preference. We were told in Dublin that we had different seats to the ones we ended up in. Food was excellent, crew were very nice. Loved the "make a wish" event on this flight - a definite plus for Virgin."

Pros: "1st class, what's not to like?"

Pros: "Food was great, plenty of it also"
Cons: "I'm 6'4" and there was no acknowledgement by the crew that I was squashed into a tight seat."

Pros: "Virgin Atlantic had a very attractive decor.Food was great& staff as well. Polite and professional ."
Cons: "The seat I had was a bit snug leg wise and recline wise. Could not get comfortable at all."

Cons: "I did not get the requested meal. I had requested Asian Veg meal. I had reconfirmed that Virgin Atlantic Kiosk at Heathrow airport as well. In flight when I asked cabin crew they said they didn't get any request. I was hungry whole flight. Very bad experience."

Cons: "cabin was nice but cold"

Pros: "The plane was very nice with great lighting. More food would have been nice as it was a long flight The crew were variable - most very helpful but one or two not so much"
Cons: "Not enough food for everyone and no snacks between meals, which was very bad considering it was a 10 hour flight Entertainment was great, seats were OK (certainly had worse)"

Pros: "As expected, great customer service from Virgin. Great Vera system. Friendly and welcoming experience."
Cons: "The seats!!!! Omg I got bed sores. Not really but they have got to be the most uncomfortable things I have ever sat in. For a European flight from Uk they'd be fine. But for 9 hours...not good. The short hop down from ATL to MCO after was a blessed relief. Virgin, you have got to think a little more about your passengers asses. Also, having flown with just about every major transatlantic operator, including previous trips with Virgin, the knee room was not good. If you stretched out under the seat in front you were ok but draw your knees up... I wore short trousers for comfort and have sore points on my knees where they rubbed against the material of the chair in front."

Cons: "Cold draft at all times."

Pros: "Flight was on time .. Friendly crew. Good entertainment system"
Cons: "Seats uncomfortable and leg room very tight . Didn't sleep well."

No one at the gate which didn’t say final call (or on any of the boards) or anyone calling us over the tannoy at any point. Super rude “flight manager” A. Turini burst out laughing when we told him our situation and when I asked why he said “Well would it make you happier if I cry instead?” So unprofessional."

Pros: "The ground staff in Heathrow was helpful. They happily swapped me onto an earlier flight to Munich after I spotted delays out of Munich, allowing me ample time to connect in Munich airport"

No hay un teléfono a donde hablar, la web está desactualizada y con información equivocada. Direccionan a usar canales de twitter y facebook que no responden. Primer experiencia en KLM y no pienso nunca más usar esta aerolínea. Llevar el equipaje o resolver un problema sobre valijas es de lo más básico de una aerolínea y no lo hacen."

Pros: "I was pleasantly surprised they had a snack service on such a short flight. The flight attendants were very friendly"
Cons: "Amsterdam customs is the most disorganized I have ever seen. With the number of tourists entering the country you would think they would have done something about it. There were only 2 customs agents!! One for all passports and 1 for all passports. We were in the customs hall longer than we were in flight!"

Pros: "Loved the service...everything was excellent"
Cons: "The bus class seat was a bit narrow at the feet"

Pros: "Airline staff good and professional"
Cons: "Nothing one can do, for a 6.2" guy, the metal bar that forms the shape for the pouch for magazines and such digs into knees, ESP if person in front adjusts seat back. Fold out table barely accommodates laptop."

Cons: "The bags where damaged from the staff"

Cons: "Departure 40 mins late. I took this flight 2 weeks ago and it was also delayed."

Cons: "One of the senior stewardesses we're very rude. Whether it's her personal opinion or KLM's policy, it's unreasonable to think that a 3 years old child could or should hold her pipi over 20 minutes, while they slowly and inefficiently trying to give out food. Several parents were there with the request to let us through to the toilet with small children and she smiled in our face and said "no, we will finish first and than you can go". She might be not fit for the job anymore, but KLM can't afford this kind of treatment."

Pros: "The crew were really helpful since I am a short person in putting my luggage away in the overhead compartment and attentive to everyone's needs. I am a fussy eater and don't really like airplane food but the food was actually really nice. We was given plenty of snacks and drinks in between meals as well. There was plenty of programmes to choose from to keep me entertained."
Cons: "The seats in economy were a little too small for a 12 hour flight"

Pros: "Short, comfortable flight. Nothing special. Got us where we needed to be without incident."
Cons: "Nothing. This is filler text to meet the min. characters."

Cons: "Flight delayed ... Myself and three other colleagues didn't have our luggage show up from KLM flight from Amsterdam to Brussels...even though all of our luggage was labeled "priority". Once in customer service line, we looked and saw that many of the other passengers on our flight also never received their luggage. We estimated that 20-25% of the people on that flight did not receive their luggage as they were in line with us for the same problem. Hard to understand how so many pieces of luggage could have been overlooked and not loaded on our flight. Obviously there is a huge gap in their quality system to ensure mistakes like this are prevented."

Pros: "The flight crew were kind, polite, and attentive."
Cons: "Bussing to the plane was a bit odd, but the crew remained organized in doing so. When we arrived to the plane, they had both entrances open so that those sitting near the rear of the plane would enter from the back. Plane was a little chilly, but I have come to expect that one most flights."

Pros: "I liked the leg room, I liked the customer service of the crew, smooth flight."
Cons: "Both ways up and down I struggled with over-head luggage space. We were allowed a cabin bag and a small hand-bag in the flight but as we were among the last half of the passengers to board the flight we couldn't find anywhere to keep our luggage and the crew had to take them away from us to store them somewhere at the back far away from our seats. As a result we had to wait until all the passengers got off the plane to get back our luggage and we were the last two passengers to get off. Unpleasant!"

Cons: "The flight was very delayed. We sat on the floor because there was not enough seating. We eventually had to squeeze into buses and drive around the tarmac to find a plane. We lost 5 bags in the process but eventually got them 2 days after arrival. the bags did not show up when we originally were told they would."

Pros: "--"
Cons: "One and a half hour delay on a 50 minute flight. Flight was operated by Cityjet on behalf of KLM. Never have I seen such bad customer service: from rude people at the bagage drop off to incompetent hostesses at the boarding gate."

Cons: "Stranded for 48 hours in Africa. Missed 3 flights due to complete incompetence, truly a horrible experience."

Pros: "There's almost no padding to them and they're very narrow. I know it's nothing new but I'll keep complaining until something changes, if ever."
Cons: "The crew was wonderful, the food was extremely good for economy cabin standards."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "You are selling tickets for flights that are not available. You are taking money from people and cheating them. You should check to make sure the flights are still going"

Cons: "Headphone jack still requires an adapter. Free headphones are very uncomfortable and don’t sound great. Just give out free adapters or change the jacks please. Announcements were super loud in the headphones."

Pros: "Very professional, engaged and polite"
Cons: "Water"

Cons: "The person next to me was x and overflowing onto my area and leaning on me through the flight"

Cons: "Excellent airline. Always my first choice!"

Cons: "The flight attendants were not helpful or attentive. A nine plus hour flight and they offered drinks once, picked up garbage once and when we tried to give them garbage before landing, told us to put it in the seat pocket or toss on the floor! It looked like the plane had been trashed when we exited"

Cons: "Flight delayed, lost our luggage, broke our stroller"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "The last 4 flights with Aerlingus have all been at least 2 hours delayed to London. People give out about Ryan Air but I have been flying with them to France 2 a year for the last 4 years and I only had one delayed flight because of air traffic controllers"

Pros: "The price."
Cons: "You have to pay for confirmed seats, and the seats are uncomfortable. No free beer or wine on international flight and the ticketing in Dublin was SUPER slow!"

Cons: "The information at boarding time was hard to understand, even coffee was a charge, they didn’t have our stroller at the gate when we got off then when we got to baggage claim it was still hard to find."

Cons: "Nothing, everything was exceptional"

Pros: "Ordinary flight, no food (though International it operates like Domestic Travel)."
Cons: "Boarding is extremely weird for Air Lingus. Causes problems when there is no proper order."

Pros: "Flight was fast."
Cons: "The boarding process could have been better organized. For example by seat number like other airlines do. Having everyone board at once was a bit disoriented."

Pros: "Nothing was pleasant for this flight"
Cons: "Keep the schedule up to date on the web When there’s delay, keep customers posted Don’t miss customers luggage"

Pros: "Flight attendants were great!"
Cons: "Roomier seats, include a beverage (soda, juice, and at least water), child free section"

Pros: "Great crew and food! Loved the comfort."
Cons: "The selection of movies could be better. There wasn't a lot to choose from."

Pros: "Great service"
Cons: "Que in immigration"

Pros: "Friendly and helpful crew. We were served drinks and food. I liked that the flight attendants requested everyone put their seats in the upright position anytime food was served so that the person sitting behind you had space to eat."
Cons: "Seats were uncomfortable (in all fairness, most airplane seats are uncomfortable!)."

Pros: "It was a short flight but the flight attendants made the most of my trip. They were very accommodating"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Liked the logistics from the European side for connecting flights, the airplane, crew, and entertainment."

Cons: "Haven’t flown it yet"

Cons: "Very bumpy takeoff and landing"

Pros: "Non stop service to Seattle; going through US Customs in Dublin."

Pros: "Quick flight, great landing"
Cons: "Can believe they charge you for water."

Pros: "Crew were efficient and courteous. Food was tasty."
Cons: "Seat in front of me was broken and leaned back too far. Audio plug wouldn’t accept two prong headset. Video screen was nonfunctional on flight to Dublin."

Cons: "For some reason I am not sure of the flight was late taking off. I think the plane may have been delayed before arriving in Dublin."

Pros: "I barely remember the flight as I was traumatized by the flight previously mentioned."
Cons: "Lost luggage!!!!!!!!! See above. The seating was a little better than British Air."

Pros: "The flight was on schedule and the crew was friendly."
Cons: "The cabin and restrooms were a bit dirty. The seats weren’t the most comfortable and the attendants didn’t make as many rounds as expected for a 10 hour day flight."

Cons: "The booking left no time to make it to the next flight. Had to purchase a separate flight last minute."

Pros: "* New planes * Easy check in"
Cons: "* Last minute seat assignment * Crew is helpful but not friendly"

Cons: "Being charged $100 each way for checked baggage, no where on my itenerary did it mention that"

Pros: "Crew"
Cons: "Dirty aircraft. Almost 1 hour delay."

Pros: "Boarding was quick."
Cons: "They lost my luggage on my connecting flight from Dublin to London. And I didn’t receive it until I returned home a week later. No clothing for a week. I wasn’t offered any reimbursement. The flight attendants were rude. And the seats were uncomfortable."

Pros: "Price Staff Efficient Comfortable Boarding and exit procedure excellent"
Cons: "Lost our luggage on our way home. Worst is that it has our toothbrushes and I can’t find new ones at 10:00 at night..."

Pros: "Crew was very nice and accommodating. After boarding was complete they moved several passengers to other rows which allowed a better distribution of open seats."
Cons: "Per usual, airline food is blah!"

Pros: "You can choose your seats without being charged and it was a very clean and comfortable flight"

Pros: "We waited about a half hour for the fuel crew to come and fill up the plane, but the staff and the captain were very nice and informed us of all updates and progress being made. I didn't even mind the extra wait! We still were able to make our next transfer and got to the airport in great time!"

Cons: "The boarding situation at Gatwick was a complete mess, they made us change the gate THREE times!"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything. They canceled the flight and made us wait at the check in counter for over 4 and half hours. After that they closed the counter without helping us rebook."

Pros: "Fast flight"
Cons: "We borded Kemal time, but did not take off until an hour later"

Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Limited choice of entertainment. ****Lost my luggage both destination bound and home bound**** Being kept in the plane for an extended period of time after having landed. Not even a coffee during the connecting flights (Dublin to Cardiff and Gatwick to Dublin). Poor connecting facilities and having to repeat security screening before connecting to the second leg of trip."

Pros: "All staff were friendly and helpful"
Cons: "Seats are too close together!"

Pros: "thr crew"
Cons: "the boarding was not by zone, it took longer"

Pros: "Seats on flights between London and Dublin."
Cons: "Unfriendly staff, poor meal offerings, delays and long check in process"

Cons: "Booked flight through Kayak. In general a good experience except that Aer Lingus did not have any record of my grandson. Despite adequate documentation the AER Lingus staff were less than helpful and unfriendly."

Pros: "Clean, comfortable plane. Friendly staff."
Cons: "Had a toasted sandwich that was very dry and a litttle overdone. Serious ear discomfort on landing"

Pros: "The Aer Lingus flight from London to Dublin was fast and easy"
Cons: "short duration in the air, no in flight entertainment or food and beverages"

Pros: "The crew was awesome and so accommodating"
Cons: "Not the flight/airline fault, but the getting through us preclearance was a nightmare"

Pros: "Check-in was easy and gate agent awesome. Boarding was a breeze. Plane was reasonably comfortable (short haul flight so didn't matter much). Weather conditions great, we arrived in DUB well ahead of schedule"
Cons: "Had lovely pix of nice looking food but charged for it! I had come over on a BA flight that served a really nice snack b'fast. Thought it odd that same route with different carrier made you pay. I was in desperate need of a coffee, could have offered complimentary beverages."

Pros: "Their hospitality was far beyond any other airlines."
