Cons: "No internet available (2020). For the my previous flight, a month ago, was the same problem."
Cons: "The only complaint I had was that it was very warm on the flight (and I usually get cold on flights), and in the seats we had there weren't fans above the seats. A few rows up they had fans, so apparently you have to pay extra for air... This wouldn't be a big deal on a short domestic flight, but for an international flight it was a long time to be uncomfortable!"

Pros: "Friendly staff, great service on board. Way better value and service compared to the tacky Irish competition flying the route. Delta all the way"
Pros: "Nothing to mention"
Cons: "Crew was rude when I asked if there was a vegetarian option for the snack. I did request special meals for the trip. Even if they did not have a vegetarian option, they don't need to be rude!! Boarding was ridiculous. we were supposed to form a line and wait. Would have been a lot better if they boarded by seat numbers. Also they made me check in my fairly small and light carry on bag resulting in its contents arriving broken!"
Pros: "MCR airport Mert & Greet parking was smooth and efficient."
Cons: "Flight was delayed 2 hours due to bad weather. Additional baggage payment to Air Baltic did not show up on the KLM system and we had to pay again. Nowhere to address this with Air Baltic even in Tallin. Handlers seem uninterested and refer us to ‘the website to address the issue.....’"
Cons: "old screens and entertainment system leg room to small"
Pros: "Very friendly onboard personnel - I really had kind of homy feeling."
Pros: "Seats were very comfortable, food was excellent, the staff was very nice, cabin was quite and roomy."

Pros: "Great on board service from a very professional crew."
Cons: "Can't think of a thing."
Pros: "More than adequate room, And very good service from a very professional staff. Head and shoulders abovevany American carrier, and several European lines I have flown."

Cons: "Can nit find much fault fir a short run!"
Pros: "The food service was good and the flight attendants were friendly."
Cons: "The plane was very uncomfortable. The seats were small, you felt on top of the person next to you, and there was no leg room. I am a pretty small person- I can't image how uncomfortable all of the taller passengers must have been."
Pros: "Seats were comfortable"
Cons: "Flight was delayed by 2 hours. Could have gone to Amsterdam and come back in that time"
Pros: "Flight crew; legroom even in cheap seats."
Cons: "Exceptionally unhelpful customer service when asking about extra kilos/bags. Just quoted the online info back at us. We simply wanted to know how much would be charged if the bag was 1-2kgs overweight. We could not get a straight answer, just quoted the unclear company policy. Extremely frustrating and annoying. KLM offer a superior flight experience - it is a shame their terrestrial customer servic does not match it!"
Pros: "Clean airplane, friendly crew, no rush, nice snacks for a short one hour flight. Just generally a positive experience."
Pros: "Short-hop flight, fit for purpose."
Cons: "Flight way delayed 3 hours. Staff gave no information and wouldn't help rebook us onto other flights. They gave us food vouchers 2 minutes before we finally boarded, so we couldn't use them. The food on the plane had spoiled so we were all starving on the flight, and we all missed our connections. Horrible experience and wouldn't fly with KLM again."
Pros: "The staff at the front desk for the check-in were extremely helpful. I had a complicated issue with my luggage and they helped me to sort it out in the best possible way. Amazing service! Furthermore, the entertainment on board is great! Nice movies, nice food, friendly flight attendants, etc. They even offered me a second sandwich =)! I truly loved my experience with KLM."
Pros: "Of the multiple international airlines I recently flew with, I would have to say KLM was by far the best. Relaxing atmosphere, comfortable seating, great in-flight entertainment, although I have the go-go in-flight data/entertainment plan with t-mobile (highly recommended), the flight included a decent selection of movies, television programs, etc. The food far exceeded typical "airline quality," even for an international flight - and included a fabulous little snack box with locally sourced gourmet and specialty items such as chocolate from Belgium, fine cheeses from France, and crackers from England. Drinks = gratis, and crew was exceptionally attentive and went out of their way to make flight as pleasant as possible."
Pros: "Priority boarding was appreciated and the flights were on time. Service was fine. Schipol was good."
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: "Long stop over at Schiphol. Too Long!!!!"
Cons: "Klm flight has very congested seating Getting information about eticket was pain"

Pros: "Seats with little fold-down head rests on each side, allowing you to sleep/nap/doze in any seat. Really good touch screens for the entertainment system, with no need to have to dig my knuckles into the screen to get it to respond. Good movie selection too. Movies are also available before take off and even after landing. Acceptable white wine (Chenin Blanc). Food was also entirely acceptable."
Cons: "No individual air/temperature controls (at least in economy), unless it was all buried in the seat-back console some how."
Pros: "The entertainment, food and crew were good"
Cons: "The seats on the 747-400 were less comfortable than the Airbus 300 going to London. The airbus also provided several more inches of legroom."

Pros: "great team. good snacks. great room."
Pros: "Comfortable and classy."
Cons: "No comment"
Pros: "We landed on time."
Cons: "This was the first time I every flew on BA. I had higher expectations than the reality of the trip. I was told by a traveler that alcoholic drinks were gratis. However, other than the one time the cart passed through no offer was made. I guess you had to buzz for a drink. I expected water to be handed out in the cabin more frequently than it was. Food was inedible. Again, I thought BA had a better reputation. Leg room was tight. Other airlines offer more."
Pros: "Flight was on time departing and early landing. There were plenty of movies to choose from and the food was good for airline food."
Cons: "Airlines in general need to do a better job of controlling the boarding process (using the groups to board) and controlling the amount of luggage people bring on. Peoples definition of a "personal item" are skewed."

Pros: "The speed of bouncing back from the computer system mishap"
Cons: "The check in people' rudeness, awful food, slow service"

Cons: "old small plane the flight attendants were not service minded"
Cons: "Non-stop from Madrid to Philadelphia was canceled apparently because of a computer problem and then I was rerouted through Amsterdam with an extremely short connectios which in turn meant that baggage did not make it and was opened and damaged !!! BA clearly at fault. BA Reservations agent suggested to enter a complaint"

Pros: "British offers a variety of comforts such as abundant drink and food as well as entertainment to keep the long travels interesting."
Cons: "On my way to Europe BA lost my custom made titanium crutches that cost over $750. They were moved without my consent to the holding of the plane, with checked baggage. The crutches were not tagged when moved without my permission and are now lost with very little chance of finding them. In the three weeks since they have only replied to one of my emails to say they will not provide compensation even to replace the crutches. It disheartens me they have a lack of care and urgency for equipment that is so vital for daily mobility in people's lives."
Cons: "At the airport, I went to the British staff to request info about the flight but the person was not well informed and redirect me to a wrong flight operator instead of American Airlines."
Pros: "Responsive crew lots of food"
Cons: "Too much mayo in good Economy seats are close"
Pros: "Overall a good trip!"
Cons: "Almost broke my finger trying to change the menu on the screen. The snack coming back toward Philadelphia, is really not very good. One should have a choice of yogurt or breakfast bar. The flatbread with weird combination of cheese, peppers etc after flying for 8 hours is just not good for any stomach."
Cons: "Took over an hour to check in bags, very little communication from check in staff at Manchester Airport, short staffed??"
Pros: "They had a great selection of movies, each passenger received a blanket and pillow without having to ask, the crew was friendly and professional, and the takeoff and landing were smooth."
Cons: "During the reservation process it seemed that the ticket included luggage, and only when I received the ticket I discovered that I had to pay 30 Euro extra, each way, to check in luggage. The ticket was by no means low-cost, so I don't understand why that wasn't included in the price. And the food could have been much better, I really couldn't eat anything and I usually like airline food... :) Thanks!"
Pros: "The crew was very cordial and professional"
Cons: "The boarding was crazy. They called group one and met anyone board and the said all other groups. I was In premium economy and wanted my group 2 that I paid extra for. Also you must use their special earphones which they collect 45 minutes prior to landing. It sure I’ll do premium economy again. I don’t se me the benefit"

Cons: "crew seemed a tad sour. came around with morning tea but without proper cups. attendant seemed annoyed when my neighbor asked for a paper cup in lieu of the plastic juice cup he already had. not a big deal but kinda weird"

Cons: "Did not have any leg room. Could not get my knees and legs into the seat area."

Pros: "The flight itself was fine"
Cons: "The agents at check in were rude and unhelpful despite the fact that I was traveling business class. One even tried to tell me what it is like to fly in the US, that it is worse than in Spain."

Pros: "The british flight to Madrid was overall very good"
Cons: "Also delayed"
Pros: "the food and the entertaiment"
Cons: "long trip"
Pros: "Movie selection was good."
Cons: "Not really an Iberia issue but Barajas airport needs to fix this. The queues for Passport checks were completely unruly - no single lines, the dividers were left wide rather than keeping people single file, people were then jockeying for position to get through- because most were now risking missing their flight, tempers flared. Everyone was angry. A very unpleasant airport experience. Which certainly lends itself to an unpleasant flight experience. People were so worked up the tension was palpable. A problem easily fixed, if only there was some care. The passport check attendants moved at a snails pace. It felt deliberate. In these trying times, I was not impressed."
Pros: "great service and nice flight. great pilots and safe trip."
Pros: "The food served and diverse movie choices."
Cons: "4 hour delay."
Pros: "Very good food overall. Picking up utensils a little slow. Good coffee. Lavatories were accessible at all times. I was able to get aisle seat without a hassle. Good movie selection l. Movie quality itself was disappointing l."

Pros: "Direct flight. Great service."
Pros: "On time and no hassles"
Pros: "American Airlines made a 10.5 hour flight very comfortable and very quick!"
Pros: "My family (four of us) flew FinnAir (Iberia) to Madrid and back and found the service outstanding. The flight crews were top notch, the takeoff and landings were smooth and even, as were both flights, the food was fine, the entertainment was great, and the seats were roomy and comfortable. Overall, a superior experience to any U.S. airline I have ever flown. I would fly them again any time. Five stars."
Cons: "On the return flight from Madrid, we ended up having to board the plane from the tarmac, which was interesting. I can remember decades ago when that was done, but it was a first for us. We checked our luggage, so it was no problem for us, but some passengers had to lug big carry-on suitcases up those staircases. I'm not sure what passengers with disabilities had to do to board. I don't think it was the airline's fault, but it was a little out-of-the ordinary."
Pros: "Very cheap flight, they fed us a lot on the flight including ice cream and lots of leg room."
Cons: "I have to say with all sincerity that my pre travel experience was horrible. Two day before my flight I got an email saying my flight had changed. Over the next 2 days I spend 7 hours on the phone with Vamaya, Iberia and Finnair and no one could seem to help me. The story always changed and I was given crazy false information. I was even told my flight was changed to 8pm on departure date when it actually was leaving at 4:40 pm. I am glad I got to the airport early. I had to to deal with all my problems. In 30 years of travel I have never had an experience so frustration. I would love to speak to someone at Kayak."
Pros: "Best transatlantic flight for a long time. More legroom quiet and delays were communicated well"
Cons: "Would have liked another couple rounds of water"
