There was a lot of delay in getting a wheel chair. Single person doing for multiple people at Heathrow airport. Since you know in advance how many need wheel chair assistance, it would have been better if more wheel chairs and persons were available. Had to wait for almost an hour after landing after a 10:30 HR flight. The economy classic leg room was so bad, that it is very difficult for senior citizens to getup from seat, if the front seat passenger is reclining. The cabin crew were very very helpful in providing the special assistance. But for them the flight would have been very difficult.
Unfortunately this was operated by Delta which is nothing like Virgin.
Plane was delayed several hours, with no explanation, the food served was poor, and the entertainment system did not work for the entire flight for the majority of the plane
More veggie options. Or something healthier.
Pros: "Great service and comfortable ride excellent staff"
Cons: "Cannot expect better service"
Pros: "Crew was excellent - friendly and helpful"
Cons: "Seats in economy too cramped - I paid extra for next seat up from basic economy which covered our baggage but, for some reason, not seats with more leg room."
Pros: "Comfortable seating, pleasant food and entertainment."
Cons: "Not being charged $1200 for a ticket that I already bought, but had been voided with no notice. And Virgin Atlantic staff not friendly or helpful in any way with this situation."
Pros: "Decent crew, nice snacks."
Cons: "Wifi shonky - didn’t work most of the way. Entertainment app didn’t work. Lengthy delay."
Pros: "Very friendly crew. We boarded about an hour before so we were ready to go well before time."

Pros: "Crew was attentive."
Cons: "Tiny, uncomfortable seats with warn cushions."
Pros: "Comfortable seat. Great crew!"
Pros: "The crew on Virgin Atlantic was superb!"
Pros: "The crew were very attentive, they tried hard to help me with comfort, drinks etc. I didnt have food as it was so good in the Virgin Clubhouse!"
Cons: "The bed! When you flip it flat its rock hard, and the matress they provide is useless! Need foam matress to really make it more comfotable. If the seat reclined another few inches i wouldnt bother flipping it."
Pros: "Comfort, service food and entertainment. What more can you ask for."
Cons: "Nothing. ]"
Pros: "Limited numbers in the top deck, silence, service and deplaning first."
Cons: "Food has to much of an asian slant."
Pros: "Nobody are better hosts than the British. Great service, lovely people."
Pros: "Pilot was great— we don’t thank them enough for a smooth and safe arrival. Plane was great. Ammenities were given (such as ear plugs etc)"
Cons: "Crew members are a bit bland and lack customer service, but I noticed that as a whole in Australia (slow service/not really interactive or communicative & very quick to make comments and leave) not sure if they just hate Americans based on the media or what. One crew member cut in line at the restroom when there was 3 of us waiting to go. Another told me my husband couldn’t receive his meal because he was napping and then he quickly walked away— Yet i received mine on the flight coming to Australia when my husband asked for me? Sanitation between flights should be more strict-my headphones were opened which lead me to believe my pillow wasn’t changed either, since one had a case and one didn’t."
Pros: "The seats of the economy class are a little bit bigger than the rest of the airlines and are so much confortable to sleep."
Cons: "The crew speaks to quick and the Australian accent is not always easy to understand"
Cons: "They lost my luggage, and ruined my trip, Customer service doesn't pick up the phone"
Pros: "Staff. Very couteous.polite. friendly."
Cons: "Good.entertainment choices."
Pros: "Great, friendly, professional crew, clean comfortable plane. Loved that full dinner and baggage and wine was included in an economy class overnight from DC to London as well as breakfast. Best flight in a long time, will definitely fly again."
Cons: "the tv screen's touch screen capabilities could use an upgrade, it was a hassle to navigate, not very sensitive to touch."
Cons: "Incredibly uncomfortable, not enough minimum space to fit my knees behind seat in front when front passenger reclined. 6 hours is too long to have a metal rod sticking straight into your knee caps. Shoulders were squished between other passengers and had to sit twisted the whole way and Im not a large person, but am 6ft. Cabin crew impolite and unhelpful. Food was awful and made my friend sick."
Pros: "Free drinks! Lots of food and good entertainment. Glad to have a free blanket and headphones as well."
Cons: "Economy seating wasn’t that comfortable"
Pros: "The crew and food were excellent. A little more space between seats would be appreciated. The entertainment equipment was not intuitive or easy to operate. I still feel the airline did a great job getting us to London on-time and a pleasant flight."
Pros: "Lovely food and staff. Lots of food."
Cons: "The seat pocket in front of me was broken. I didn't want to make a fuss but one would have thought during checks pre-flight that should have been noticed and rectified. I was flying with my family including my 4 yr old and we had lots of toys to keep her entertained but had no where to put them apart from on our seats and tables when we were allowed to have them down."
Pros: "Complimentary newspaper Food service"
Cons: "Overhead reading light"
Cons: "I had to be rebooked on a later flight due to weather in London; this was obviously not the airline's fault. Because I took a later flight I missed my connection in London."
Pros: "I loved how the airline crew were very accommodating. This was an awesome experience. A+++"
Cons: "I have no complaints."
Pros: "Nice airline, great crew and service."
Cons: "Leg room and space was great but the seats could use some more cushion."
Cons: "Once In London, we were told by British Airways that was flying us to Nice that Delta had “lost” our infant electronic ticket - It took 1.5h to get new ticket reissued! We missed our connection and had to wait 3 more hours for the next flight - We were somewhat lucky as multiple flights were delayed/cancelled that day - I will avoid using Virgin Atlantic in the future as they need Delta and British operate their flights and this makes it prone to issues like that"
Pros: "On time."
Pros: "A large selection of movies, shows and music to choose from. Flight crews were attentive and friendly."
Cons: "The narrow space between each rows for passengers to move from their seats."
Pros: "Efficient service"
Cons: "Entertainment screens were of poor quality"
Pros: "The flight was on time."
Cons: "The floor at our feet had been spilled on during a previous flight and not cleaned. Bag was lost and not returned for 5 days. Crew during flight was flippant and disinterested in service...unless you were Economy+."
Pros: "I've had knee surgery and the flight attendants were very accommodating as to "make" and ice pack for me. The recline of the seats was impecible. The food was great. Overall, great flight."
Pros: "Great seat. I did the upgrade and it was so comfortable ...good food."
Cons: "They closed the shades immediately when we took off. Creepy"
Pros: "Friendly, helpful, efficient staff on the ground & in the air. Great selection of movies, tv, music for each person flying. Comfortable flight. Great beverage & food choices."
Pros: "There are lots of relatively new movies to choose from."
Cons: "The complimentary headset breaks easily. Tray table was broken and they can't fix it. Very small bathrooms, knees almost touch the door when sitting down. Food selection for dinner ran out quickly, resulting in only 2 choices and one is hot spicy, so basically only one choice. All beverages are given out in small cups, even water is given out in small cups increments (finish in one gulp), they don't even give out small bottles of water. No complimentary packet (eye shades, socks etc.) , not even a barf bag for collecting trash."
Pros: "Crew was awesome and their service was great. I liked that they put snacks like fruit out to eat during the flight."
Cons: "The meals were terrible. I flew on VA a couple of years ago and the food was very good but it has really gone down since then."
Cons: "For an international flight, the plane was too small, cramped and uncomfortable. Food had to be purchased. No entertainment what so ever. Previous I took a VA flight to Perth from Melbourne. Same distance, bigger plane, entertainment on seat backs and a meal. This flight soured me."
Cons: "They tried checking my carryon luggage because they said it was overweight and it would be $130. This is absurd, especially since it isn't going to change in weight by getting checked. I refused to pay this amount. The flight was also 3 hours delayed, almost missed my connection back to the states from SYD. Other international flights offer free meal service, you were lucky if you got water on this flight and had to pay for any snacks."
Cons: "It wasn't clear that we would need to pay to check our luggage, especially since every international flight I have ever been on allows you a checked bag at no cost. When we got to the airport it cost us $130 each to check our bag which we were told it would have been around $50 if we had done it online ahead of time (if we knew). $130 per bag is excessive for checked luggage and we were extremely frustrated and disappointed. I like to fly Virgin when I can due to comfort but that experience left much to be desired."
Pros: "reservations easy to make (like most other airlines) A water bottle, blanket, headset & sleep kit on each seat. Seats were not so close together in coach that your knees were against your chin if the guy in front of you put his seat back. The planes I was on To/from LAX-BNE felt very spacious because of the interior height. 2 free checked bags."
Cons: "The food was mediocre--doughy stuff for both meals Not very tasty. The entertainment selection was nowhere near as good as on other airlines. Very Australia-heavy music, old films & TV shows available, as well as some new ones. But no live TV channels, not even current news."
Pros: "The food and service was excellent. Love it!"
Pros: "Staff excellent - Inflight screen useful."
Cons: "Could not do online Check in - apparently as there were 4 separate legs on my Ticket."
Pros: "There were lots of choices of movies. The flight was only half full, so I got two seats together to stretch out."
Cons: "The cups for water and juice were very small."
Pros: "Great service, tons of food"
Cons: "This VS007 flight is in an old Airbus that needs a major overhaul, especially compared to newer planes in their fleet. The screens are hardly visible, the movie selection more limited, the seats old, and no electrical outlets for a 11hr flight is just not acceptable these days!"
Pros: "The crew was very good with the passengers and attentive"
Cons: "The leg space is very tight, it was very hard to sit specially for longer flights it's not that comfortable"
Sat on ground at Lax for 40 min after landing because some one was at our gate. After a 3 1/2 hour flight it sucks to just sit there and wait for no reason that the pilot could give us. So much for ever getting out of the airport on time.
Everything was great until landed and had to wait 25 minutes to get into our gate! Can’t think of a good excuse for that on such a late, cross-country flight. Plenty of prep time!
Cons: "The pilot take off, navigation in the air, and landing were horrible ."
Pros: "Crew was fantastic. Seats are narrow in space, but more comfortable than other airlines."
Cons: "Drink and snack service, but captain was concerned about "bumps""
Cons: "So uncomfortable with tiny seats"
Pros: "Good flight, got home early."
Cons: "Hand out headphones, my phone doesn’t have compatibility."

Pros: "On time, comfortable flight. Great crew and service."
Cons: "Nothing. Everything was great."
Pros: "They were awesome"
Cons: "Nothing I was at my best on the best airline and crew"
Cons: "thin seat cushions"
Pros: "At the airport things were quite, security was fast. Boarding was fast and smooth. I’ve flown with delta a lot and also a lot of others (cheaper ones) and I’m always happy when I get a delta flight things are always calmer and less crowded!"
Pros: "Service was great"
Pros: "Crew was great as always. Friendly and professional"
Cons: "We had a delay that complicated our getting home but all ended up OK"
Pros: "Boarding was fast"
Cons: "The seats were incredibly uncomfortable. This was a Comfort + seat. Very hard, unbearable for an overnight flight."
Pros: "Crew was amazing and super helpful."
Cons: "Just the fumes of fuel inside the cabin was nauseating. Never had similar issue with air travel before."
Cons: "Leg room was lacking."
Pros: "New plane. Great movie selection. More stylish seats + bathroom. Overall very good and I think Delta has really made an effort to improve it's service. It's noticeable."
Cons: "Plane felt very dry compared to others. The electrical plug outlet jams right at around your knee level. Bread was cold and rock hard (seriously, can we not come up with a good solution for this?)."
Pros: "Staff and flight were good"
Cons: "The chicken dinner was mediocre"
Pros: "Left ontime great breakfast. Good service No complaints"
Cons: "I loved the trip No negative comments."
Pros: "Cabin service was decent"
Cons: "Food was cold. First class service could have been more attentive. While trying to sleep crew talked the entire time."
Pros: "Crew was ok"
Cons: "Plane boarded late, took off late, arrived late. Boarding was confusing and slow."
Pros: "I liked that I was able to check my carry-on to for free"
Cons: "I hated the seat and zone that I was assigned. I was literally the last seat in the back and also the very last person to board and get off the plane. It was terrible. Please select better seats for customers"
Pros: "Great services ce."
Pros: "The Dutch flight attendant who took care of our economy side of the flight was personable, helpful, and cheerful. She made the flight definitely more pleasant because as you know, traveling overseas in economy is no picnic!"
Pros: "The Gate Agents were excellent and very helpful with accommodating our family traveling with an infant and a six year old."
Cons: "The flight attendant saw that we were confused about the seat map and did not offer any assistance."
Pros: "Timely, clean"
Cons: "A little chaotic at boarding time"
Pros: "Everything. Pilots and crew"
Pros: "Nice crew members always polite and courteous.maybe over polite if anything. Australians don't require subservient service deliverers. The constant "your very welcome" regardless of the service and response to that delivery is off-putting to me. But al in all pretty good in most areas."
Cons: "ON ticketing at New Orleans I wasn't allocated a seat number. At the gate shortly prior to boarding I needed to attend the desk for that allocation. I was also not told which Terminal the plane would go to in LAX and which terminal the connecting flight would be leaving from. They were not sure! Consequently I floundered around at LAX wasting time and bothering people for information that should have been known to me. The security checks are over the top and inconsistent in the US."
Pros: "I enjoyed the upholstery and comfort of the chairs."
Cons: "I prefer to be made aware of delayed flights sooner than an hour before the flight. I would much rather wait in the comfort of home or a hotel over waiting in the airport."
Pros: "I liked getting home"
Cons: "I didn’t like the delays without warning or any benefits at the end."
Pros: "The crew was friendly and accommodating. Although the flight was several hours late the crew and staff were very professional and apologetic. The alerts were accurate and timely. Once we were in flight I was extremely please with the ride. Thanks to the captain and crew my granddaughter and I made it home safely."
Cons: "The plane was delayed several hours."
Cons: "The overhead bin did not stay down low enough so that I could place my bag in. It would lower then before I could place my bag raise slightly by a few inches. For someone of my height (5’5”) that was problematic. Fortunately another passenger saw my dilemma and held the bin lower to its full opening capacity. This also momentarily slowed down the boarding process."
Cons: "If some takes up two seats , then they should buy two seats. Very simple"
Cons: "There was no gluten free snack option."
Cons: "Extremely long queue"
Pros: "Friendly staff.."
Pros: "Good service, on time, clean planes"
Cons: "The commuter Jets seats are really small unless you pay for Delta Comfort"
Pros: "Free pretzels and drink"
Cons: "Not enough overhead space for everyone's carry-on bags so I sat with mine down by my feet which left me little foot space. Was a bit uncomfortable"
Pros: "The fact that there were no delays!"
Pros: "Great gate agent at JFK on the layover."
Cons: "No assigned seats on second flight til we got to JFK."
Pros: "Seats in economy had a little more elbow room and space. They offered free movies and free satelite tv as well as better snack options."
Cons: "Not being able to pick seats until the gate. Traveled with 4 friends and all of us sat separate. 4 of us in middle seats."
Cons: "Delay from Seattle to pasco."
Pros: "Meg, our stewardess came out to tell us there would not be any coffee on a 6 AM flight and that we had time to get coffee, if needed. She kept us informed of flight delays, helpful with my bags."
Cons: "There was nothing that could be done, but due to construction at the airport, waited on tarmac for an hour before we could get to a gate, then they had problems with the ramp and that had to be addressed. But pilot was very good about keeping us informed on delays and he was as frustrated as we were."
Cons: "It was a great flight. We got there earlier then arrive time. Thank You"
Pros: "The complimentary entertainment was great, made the flight enjoyable."
Cons: "The con was the need for a connecting flight and the second plane didn't have the same perks."
Cons: "I did not like the fact that I have been with Delta for years and their response to me about booking my flight and using the payment method was they are working on it and there is nothing they can do. They would not even offer to hold my flight for 24 hours in case they fixed the issue within that time frame. It was very disappointing."
They ask for electronic vaccination status to be downloaded but then they ask to see it again!!! Whats the point of downloading?? Also economy class was allowed to board through business and were not told to go to a different line
There could be some more leg space in the economy class.
Cons: "Racists bastards!"
Pros: "We got to Chicago at least 45 minutes before the expected landing time. The dinner was pretty good and the crew came around many times offering drinks. The ground crew did a good job of evaluating luggage and tagging people’s bags before the overhead bins got too full so it didn’t delay our flight."
Cons: "The snack sandwich was freezing cold..."
Pros: "The crew was Ok except at the beginning when they could help more inside the plane with finding the seating."
Cons: "I missed the plane shopping because i don’t recall seeing the crew after the meal offering it. I heard the announcement at the beginning of the flight so I was looking forward to make purchases. Later when I asked it was already closed."
Cons: "It was fine, just tiring due to the length of the flight."
Pros: "The crew was friendly, attentive and helpful"
Cons: "The leg room would have been ok if the people were forced to put their chairs in the upright position during meals."

Cons: "The travel has bien good"
Pros: "Good crew, comfort and timing"
Cons: "I got what I expected"
Pros: "Crew was the best ever."

Pros: "Lufthansa hands down is the best airline I have ever flown!"
Cons: "Highly recommended for efficiency"
Cons: "Flight was 45 minutes late arriving, causing me to miss my connection to Lufthansa and forcing reroute of whole trip."
Pros: "The crew was very friendly, and overly willing to help."
Cons: "The crew called ahead to warn our connections of our delay. Unfortunately, Lufthansa doesn't care about honoring their duty to paying customers."
Pros: "The agent worked hard to find us another flight to rome"
Cons: "Our plane sat on turnac in Toronto waiting for a parking gate for 30minutes making us miss our connecting flight. Finally arrived but missed our train to Florence had to stay Saturday night in Rome while our villa in Lucca sat empty which was paid for"
Pros: "Got the exit row (great)!"
Cons: "Flight was a bit delayed but retrieving the bags took a long time. Short flight but food wasn’t appealing and there was no entertainment."
Cons: "We missed our flight bc our luggage was stuck on the plane for 1.5 hours and we missed our connection. After running around the airport, waiting on the phone for over 2 hours and in line for 45 minutes, we are booked on a later flight and hope to get home tonight."
Pros: "I always had a great experience with Lufthansa."
Cons: "Delay of 45 minutes made me almost miss my connecting flight."
Pros: "I like everything about Lufthansa- the professionalism of its flight attendants, the food (yes!), the inflight entertainment options. I'll even lengthen my flight so that I can take Lufthansa on the longest leg."

Pros: "On time-well organized!"
Pros: "Plane was clean"
Cons: "no entertainment, cramped seats"
Cons: "The food options you're supposed to get don't exist because they provide a limited number of the variety they have! By the time they get to your seat, they are already out of options. Sadly, the quality and service are going down too."
Cons: "Munich airport should be improved far more. it took more than 20 mins to find a toilette. they should install more toilette for the travellers."
Pros: "Good customer service , friendly crew, clean plane. I always travel with Lufthansa to Europe and back because I like their professional and friendly crews. They always do very good job."
Cons: "Not much leg room for a tall guys like me."
Pros: "The flight was on time. Helpful, friendly crew. Will use Condor services again."

Cons: "No entertainment on board of the aircraft"
Pros: "Service was good, got to change my seat last minute to sit next to my husband."

Pros: "The perfect assistance. We are very grateful, many thanks to the man who helped us in all we needed."
Pros: "Quick boarding"
Cons: "Flight was slightly delayed. We had to hustle in Munich to make our connecting flight (so we thought) to IAD. It turned out the flight to IAD was also somewhat late so in the end all was well but we had less than an hour to make the connection and it was a bit fraught."
Pros: "I was upgraded to economy plus"
Cons: "The flight was delayed from Frankfurt"

Pros: "Very nice airplane and pleasant crew"
Pros: "Services is good ."
Cons: "Food can be better"
Cons: "When a bought my ticket, I had asked in the office about WiFi. They told me that you have WiFi on the plane. I had checked this information on KLM.com and saw the same, that you have WiFi. This was the reason, why a chose KLM! Then I tried to connected on board but I couldn’t! WiFi was not available. Crew told me that they don’t know anything about it! I was disappointed and angry."

When they arrived on Amsterdam Netherlands Airport they were dropped to the gate assigned first and once the gate changed on the fly no body came to help them moving to the new gate assigned which was far away to walk. Nobody even came to tell them that the gate has been changed. It was because of my father's alertness they didn't miss the connecting flight and when my father asked help to members on airport none of them helped my parents and other 4 co passengers which also were on wheel chairs. It was so scary experience for them that they asked me not to book any more flights with Jet Airways. I won't recommend Jet Airways to any of my friends for their parents to travel to USA. I strongly recommend you guys to take a strict action against this. This is so unacceptable."
Pros: "Very pleasant, professional crew"
Cons: "Very slow check in. Mainly because other passengers obviously don't read instructions re: weight/contents of cabin bags etc. Would be helpful if there was additional staff to deal with them away from check in desk. This would mean that others did not have to queue for 25 minutes because the check in girls also had to deal with them"
Pros: "Professional crew. Good boarding."

Pros: "Left ontime and service was excellent."
Pros: "Arrived Early!"
Cons: "Left Late :-)"
Pros: "Flight crew was fine. Food was good."

Pros: "Friendly staff, good service and on time departure/arrival."
Pros: "Short flight with good communication."
Cons: "Nil to complain."
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"

Cons: "Missing wheel chairs swrvice lounge far away no food option just lame klm tipique"

Cons: "At some point the luggage was lost. here."
Pros: "Entertainment was good, and crew was very nice and accommodating. Flight was very comfortable and smooth."
Cons: "The food was okay, not that great."
Pros: "Eveything is well arranged"
Pros: "The pilot kept us informed periodically during our journey. I liked that we could choose our seating online. The entertainment was good."
Cons: "The plane was dirty, all seats did not have pillows and blankets. Seating was not very comfortable, particularly as there was a box attached to one of the legs of the seat in front of me, making it necessary to move my legs to an uncomfortable angle."
Pros: "I really like the spaciousness, the plug ins and general service"
Cons: "I have a dairy allergy but had no option to prepurchase a dairy free meal. It made for a very unenjoyable flight as I couldn't eat anything they had. What was worse was after I told them of my situation they said they understood and had a meal that would do but there was cheese, yogurt, milk chocolate, etc."
Cons: "They didn’t let us board the plane. Allegedly the plane was changed and make us travel by train!! They offered us a compensation but we haven’t heard from them yet. Not good experience at all."

Cons: "Being delayed and missing my connecting flight. No entertainment onboard (for hours and hours)."

Cons: "Elbow room is a little bit awkward and I didn't get to sit next to my fiance WE will still definitely recommend KLM though!"
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: "Very efficient boarding, fast and professional but warm and friendly. The plane was very clean and quite spacious for a two by two configuration. On time departure and landing and smoothed processing at the other end."
Cons: "Nothing to improve"
Pros: "Loved this 747! Crew was professional and food was very good."
Cons: "We had a long wait (25 minutes) at the gate because we were early."
We had tickets to sit in first class, but that section was oversold, so we were bumped down to economy. I am very unhappy about that. The employees in the terminal at the check-in desk were very friendly and tried to solve this. They helped us with boarding as first class passengers, and did everything thing else that they could do for us under the circumstances. Since we were sitting in the first row of the economy section on the plane, the flight attendants ignored us, for the most part. We did not receive the first class meal, although any of the economy class food was free. The dehydrated stew was awful. The sandwich was okay.
Cons: "If the flight actually left! It was canceled for a reason that was not given. I was rebooked the next day on another airline. Lost a whole day."
Cons: "My regular sized carry on was supposedly too large and had to be checked. I was not prepared for this as it has never happened on another flight"
Cons: "The first class seats need updating"
Cons: "Aircraft has TV equipment that is not functioning ,no phone chargers in the seats,dirty salon not even a snack!"
Cons: "1) too hot. air conditioning could be better. 2) long waiting in lines during the boarding. the flight was delayed for 30 minutes"
Pros: "Exit row seats are much better than standard seating for comfort."
Cons: "I was very disappointed that it cost me 152.00 to check one bag."
Pros: "Crew was great, seats were comfortable, plenty of space"
Pros: "Nice clean plane, more roomy plane than first flight from Toronto"
Cons: "Let know all the hidden costs before buying tickets"
Cons: "After the 8+ hour delay, Icelandair cancelled the flight. If you have a connection, you’re out of luck with so little flight options."
Cons: "Got email night before that flight had cancelled or changed. Ended up on a flight on United. Got to my destination as scheduled."
Pros: "I was fortunate to get an empty seat next to me."
Cons: "Staff are impeccably dressed but not really friendly. Seats are uncomfortable."
Pros: "Good basic service and ontime flights. No real frills but very adequate."
Cons: "First time flying transcontinental without a meal service. Purchased a “pizza” that looked nothing like the picture. One drink service over the course of 7 hours. Brutal."
Pros: "This flight was good, direct to PDX in 8 hours. Inflight entertainment was good and staff pleasant. Boarding was smooth and flight was on time. Luggage all retrieved safely at destination."
Cons: "My complaint is with Kayak! We believed we were choosing a flight with first bag checked free, but that was so far from the truth! Each of our two checked bags cost $75 USD, adding a brutal $150 to the cost of our flight! Food was also quite expensive."
Cons: "Surprised by very large bag fees, reservation was unclear about baggage allowance and charges."
Pros: "Iceland air have a good product. They fly 757 and 767s that are clean and well maintained. Staff is very helpful, I changed over a flight during the layover in KEF and it was flawless, I got my checked bag as promised in CPH which was quite well done. So, they went out of their way to accommodate me. KEF does great with passport control and the lounge there is very nice."
Cons: "KEF is a busy airport, always at capacity for travelers. Depending on the season it is hard to find a seat at the airport let alone the gate. During summer it is hard to even walk thru the airport. Depending on your abilities, give yourself time to get to the gate."
Pros: "*Water bottle distribution while boarding *Excellent movie/tv selection *Comfortable/roomy seats *Very pleasant staff *Good luggage storage"
Cons: "No dislikes here!"
Pros: "Connecting flight was held for connections, thought actually as it turned out it appeared to be corresponding delays."
Cons: "Too-small boarding area closed-off to passengers till nearly boarding time -- no place to sit."
Cons: "It was the most uncomfortable flight I’ve ever had"
Pros: "Got to my connecting flight on time."
Pros: "I really enjoyed flying with Iceland Air. One bag included for check in with ticket - which can be hard to come by these days. As well, the plane was brand new, leather seats and entertainment system. There was water and a blanket waiting for you at your seat once you boarded. They were very efficient and the crew made the trip a pleasant journey. Would highly recommend!"
Pros: "flight attendants uniforms"
Cons: "Bare minimum no headphones no snack-even pretzels/peanuts one drink really awful bare bones"
Pros: "Icelandair is friendly, helpful and comfortable. The TVs are great. The only thing that would make it perfect are more reasonably priced food choices."
Pros: "Seating space was good in the plane."
Cons: "Reykjavik terminal is too small and was a mad house, with too many people and not enough seating. No clear instructions re: boarding. Everyone stood in line for a long time as no one knew what to do, and there was no waiting area or seating. No free food or alcoholic drinks on an international flight."
Pros: "Service on the plane was excellent."
Cons: "Reykjavik airport is rough! It is very crowded and boarding was chaotic."
Pros: "Plane was on time/even ahead of time, though we were late leaving due to waiting for connections - for which I was grateful, as we landed from Geneva 5 minutes before we were due to start boarding and had a certain distance to cover, plus long lines for passport control. Crew were courteous and drinks were offered twice. Like the water offered as you board as well."
Cons: "The boarding process seemed rather chaotic to me. Everyone lined up. you were supposed to scan your ticket, but it didn't work for a number of people, who then had to go to an attendant to get checked. In the end, we all got on, however! I might have watched a movie if I'd known to bring my own head set. Wasn't up for buying one, which was the alternative. Couldn't listen to music either. But I read a lot and dozed."
Pros: "I booked Economy Comfort, but the plane's configuration was such that I had effectively a Saga (business) class seat. It was overall very comfortable. Service was excellent, with free meals and beverages (champagne excepted). The seatback video was large, clear, and had a lot of content, including lots of tourism-promotion videos. Economy Comfort gets you access to the Saga lounge in KEF, which was very nice."
Cons: "The tray in the armrest, when opened, was too close for comfort. It did swing away, but then was at an angle. The seat of the passenger in front of me was somewhat broken in that it leaned back at an angle."
Pros: "Planes were clean and very comfortable. Entertainment was great. Crew was professional and well informed."
Cons: "It was extremely disappointing that absolutely no food of any kind was offered on the 5 1/2 hour flight from Boston to Reykjavik. No pretzels, no bag of nuts, no cookies, NOTHING. The only thing handed out on the 5 1/2 hour flight was a bottle of water at the start. There wasn't even a choice of beverages. I would very much have appreciated knowing that beforehand, so that I could pick something up at the airport to tide me over. Needless to say, there was only water offered on the flight from Reykjavik to Hamburg. I cannot overemphasize-- Icelandair should at least clearly inform passengers in advance of their overseas flights that there will be no food service."
Pros: "Not too long flight.courteous and polite staff"
Cons: "Smaller plane"
Pros: "Using SAS lounges"
Cons: "The aircraft was of older vintage as was the business class. The seats were actually uncomfortable with little padding and no lumbar support."
Cons: "Late arrival almost missed train."
Pros: "Friendly staff. Low wait time at passport control compared to other connection points in Europe."
Cons: "We were delayed for two hours due to a weather delay from the day before. When we boarded our plane it was cold, and then we had to sit and wait for 45 minutes while we waited for connecting passengers. I would've preferred to be held up inside the terminal a little longer than sit on a cold plane with little communication. No water fountains at KEF"
Pros: "Short transit. Although the first leg of my flight was delayed by more than 1h 30 minutes, they arranged for quick transfers at Reykjavik airport and we arrived almost on time at final destination."
Cons: "No free food is served on board so make sure to bring your own food or be prepared to buy your meal on board (they don't accept cash, only bank/credit cards)."
Pros: "There were so many things wrong with our flight from Gatwick to NYC. The check in staff were rude and homophobic at check in, forcing my partner and I to separate for check in while we watched heterosexual partners check in together freely. The disabled toilet alarm broke as we descended into NYC and we listened to end-of-the-world death sirens as we were landing. It was not communicates that food was a microtransaction on flight and was so overpriced so we went nearly 13 hours without food because the flights were also delayed on the tarmac. The de-icing tow truck in Iceland was broken down so we were delayed two hours on the layover. On return, both Icelandair gates opened late. During the layover we were kettled in hot container units before 20 min before being bussed to the plane and held for 15 minutes. Then, the icing on the cake was landing back at Gatwick and seeing my brand new luggage I bought on the trip damaged with thr back pocked ripped out along the bottom seam. I will never again ride with these rude, price-gouging, apathetic amateurs."
Pros: "clean cabin"
Cons: "Tiny seats (average sized male here - trust - they are tiny) All food is charged (not a single piece of free food was offered; $8/sandwich) Lost luggage - I've never dealt with airline personnel (in person & over phone) that displayed such a level of apathy. Compensation ceiling: $99. They apologized about the incident as if they were sorry that it was raining that day - not losing 2 pieces of luggage and not having any means to track them. Check-in personnel: They only gave me a single luggage tag for 3 pieces of luggage - they should have given me 3. Would have made tracing lost luggage easier. Employee @ IAD told me that if I didn't show up at the boarding gate 40 minutes prior to boarding that they would remove my luggage from airplane and that I could risk losing flight (wtf?). Icelandair is one of the worst airlines I have ever flown. I highly recommend looking elsewhere. They may offer rates 20% cheaper than other major carriers, but that discount accompanies a steep price. It's an airline run by inexperienced, lackluster, apathetic staff who, frankly, have no business operating an airline. If your options are flying with a major carrier vs Icelandair - and the price difference is a few hundred $: pay the extra money; you'll be glad you did. Icelandair's prices are not low enough to justify all the discomforts and liabilities which accompany them. Look elsewhere. Keep this in mind: I'm a seasoned flyer. This airlines barely ranks one notch up from Ryanair."
Cons: "Delayed flight leading to 4 hours lost and a transfer through Copenhagen No food unless you pay Staff not very nice"
Cons: "Our plane was diverted to refuel - after an hour and a half of increasingly cryptic and contradictory communications while sitting on the ground, we were removed from the plane and given cots to sleep on the airport floor. No staff present to provide information, no communication by email, noone available by phone, no updates on the website, vague rumors from another airline's staff of a "possible flight" the following evening.....no idea how/when we'd get back to Denver. We got a car and started driving...huge vote of no confidence in Iceland Air, its equipment and staff."
Pros: "Generally well run and a pleasant experience."
Pros: "Our flight from Iceland to Zurich was prompt, calm, comfortable, and easy."
Cons: "No outlets a big converter box under the seat so I had no footspace."
Cons: "The Reykjavik airport is simply too small for the number of flights they have. Most planes can't come to a gate, and there were nowhere near enough busses shuttling passengers to the planes. As a result, it took 90 minutes to board the plane, and an additional 70 minutes after boarding to get a runway to take off. We made up some time in the air so we were only an hour late, but it seemed avoidable if the airport would be more realistic about its capacity."
Pros: "Check-in was efficient, and staff at the counter was friendly"
Cons: "No food for an international flight"
Pros: "Same....the crew on board are lovely. The food was just ok."
Cons: "We were herded to lower level at Keflavik where the seating is sparse and food choices are bad."
Pros: "that it wasn't Iceland air. we were re-booked with Lufthansa (through Frankfurt) and the crew had bought dinner for the 36 extra passengers (from Iceland air missed connections) -- for a 3 hour flight! so let me recap: Iceland air had NO FOOD for our transatlantic flight. Lufthansa BOUGHT FOOD for the extra passengers for a 3 hour internal Europe flight! next time we will fly Lufthansa =)"
Pros: "Same as above"
Cons: "Same as above"
Pros: "Quick painless flight"
