Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "I liked the service and the food"
Cons: "The lack of movie choices"
Pros: "The flight itself was fine. We had a two-hour delay due to a mechanical issue, but the crew took care of it as quickly as they could."
Cons: "It was just a relatively quick, unremarkable flight."
Pros: "Good service"
Cons: "That we had to pay for checked bagage on the return flight (Copenhagen to Newark) was an unpleasant and expensive surprise. In the 25+ years I have flown trans Atlantic with SAS, this is the first time that I’ve had to pay for luggage. No pre-warning .... :-(."
Cons: "Again we had to climb down stairs with our luggage to get to the boarding area, then we had the typical ramp. What is it with Europe and stairs? If you have any issues beware. You better be strong and fit to fly in Europe. Not too many luxuries."
Cons: "Boarding and boarding pass was horrible. 30 min before boarding, there was no one at the SAS area."
Pros: "Only thing I like is seats and boarding experience"
Cons: "The terrible air hostesses rude arrogant and very disrespectful"
Pros: "Guess what, we took off and arrived on time!"
Cons: "Attitude of staff, cleanliness of cabin, actual cod fish (not tilapia/suay) etc. For dinner. Good Swedish scotch too"
Cons: "the staff constantly refused to help when they could and provided wrong information that caused me to miss my flight. i will never book through kayak because of this experience."
Pros: "Business class lounge excellent. People who helped with the wheelchair were excellent."
Cons: "In a wheelchair. Check in was terrible and rude. The fact that SAS did not allow us to bring my electric chair directly to the gate was absurd (only airline in the world that did that). The fact that it was not at the gate when we arrived in Newark surprised even the SAS Gate agents. Had to go to baggage and collect it in oversize baggage. Will not fly SAS again until that policy has changed."
Pros: "The food was great and the staff were excellent."
Cons: "The entertainment selection was limited and there were no live channels - just prerecorded content"
Pros: "Made an effort to avoid the turbulence."
Cons: "Bumpy ride."
Pros: "Staff efficient."
Cons: "Leg room is tight. No free alcohol. Dinner was very good. Lunch snack was tasteless."
Pros: "Nice staff, comfortable."
Cons: "Not sure why they only have like 20 movies, most of which are not good. Delta has hundreds of movies to choose from. Old and new. When entertainment is included in the high price of these long haul trips, it helps to have a semi-decent selection."
Pros: "Price and destination was convenient"
Cons: "They said coffee and tea was complimentary but they didn't serve a number of people for some reason"
Cons: "Not enough characters to express my disappointment."
Cons: "Didn't make connectingflight due to a bomb alert at airport. sAS didntgive any support with either food or hotel. Stuck in Copenhagen for a day and night."
Pros: "I am vegetarian with no egg fish or meat. I didn't get any choices"
Pros: "Not much to say on a positive note, I want to avoid this airline if I can."
Cons: "Three and a half hour flight and all they offer free is coffee and soft drinks! The economy seats are small and the flight attendants are indifferent, until it's time to promote their duty free products. Find an airline with better customer service."
Pros: "They were very accommodating to alternate diets. All staff were very friendly and helpful"
Cons: "I order through Kayak, which took me to priceline...Got my ticket and thought everything was fine...Until I got to the airport, apparently I got a SAS lite ticket and they charged me to check 3 bags 210 Euros...Unreal. I think its pricelines fault because they did not even offer bagage as an option..."
Pros: "Real meals"
Pros: "I was able to get to my destination safely b"
Cons: "Planes are old. No conveniences at all - none. Charged for one piece of luggage (my only piece) at the gate. Security process extremely slow. 1.5 hours early to airport and I made it on board by 9 mins. There plane sat for 20 mins on runway before departing."
Cons: "The 70 euro bag check fee"
Cons: "Unexpected 70 euro baggage fee that I had no way to add online."
Cons: "My 1st experience on SAS & everything was late: takeoff over an hour late, and upon arrival in CPH we were delayed again to exit the plane because they couldn't get the skyway door attached to the plane."
Pros: "Good choice of movies."
Cons: "I was seated between two families with two babies on board so there was little room for me to rest since there was a lot of movement."
Pros: "SAS is the best airlines !!"
Pros: "Quit a lot space for domestic flight"
Cons: "No drinks no food. We pay a lot of money for seat"
Pros: "Crew was efficient; cabin was clean."
Cons: "Seating was tight and uncomfortable. Seat cushions felt thin, we could feel the seat frames, and there was too little space between the rows. Food was lame and over cooked."
Pros: "personnel is very courteous."
Cons: "cofee is terrible."
Pros: "The crew was friendly."
Cons: "The crew forgot to start serving the final meal until 40 minutes before we landed which resulted in them nearly throwing food at people so that they could quickly get through the plane and sit again before descent. I was not able to choose my seat and was seated in the back of the plane. Consequently this meant that every parent on the plane with two-year-olds decided that the best place to let them stretch their little legs was back by me. I work with small children so I understand that when they reach that age all they want to do is kick and punch, but I didn't want to end my vacation by having half a dozen two-year-olds punch my leg or try to crawl under my chair as they wandered nearby. I still have bruises."
Pros: "On time and smooth travel."
Cons: "No choice in dinner items."
Cons: "Crew was rude. Had to ask 3 times for a drink before I actually got it and they snarled at me about having to pay. I didn't care about paying, at that pout I would have paid $100 for some water. Seats are RIDICULOUSLY small and when the person in front of you puts their seat back it's impossible to do anything. Forgot having your tray table down."
Pros: "Staff seemed nice. Boarding didn't take too long even when I was selected for a random check."
Cons: "The air conditioning didn't go on until take off. There were no options for food. All alcoholic beverages were not complementary and priced too high. I got sick after eating the meal that was provided. i reserved a seat but at check in the computer assigned me a different seat number. I was flying with a family member and instead of sitting next to them I had to sit next to a stranger."
Pros: "A bottle of water along with the standard pillow and blanket at each seat. Never had a long line for the bathroom (dumb luck?)"
Pros: "Food and movies were great!"
Cons: "Couldn't afford a seat with leg space."
Cons: "I didn't.t like your movies selection? Not very current. the food was awful. Not being able to book a seat until I arrived from Amsterdam."
Pros: "as advertised - premium economy"
Cons: "no complaint or concern"
Pros: "Quick and easy, nice cabin crew. I experienced no difficulties before or during this flight."
Cons: "We did not get food in this flight, it was not necessary because it was only a 1h 25m flight, so I cannot rate it."
Pros: "The entertainment system is top notch. And the food was actually good. The crew was very friendly and helpful."
Cons: "Couldn't use the WiFi without paying extra, even on an international flight. The seats are among the most uncomfortable I have ever flown in. There is so little room that it is virtually impossible to sleep, even on an 8-hour flight. The purser's English was atrocious, nearly incomprehensible, and he didn't seem to care whether anyone understood him or not."
Cons: "I lost my luggage!!!"
Pros: "Everything was great, food, blanket & pillow, movies, friendly service."
Cons: "The 3 hour delay for landing. Had a 2 hour drive home from the airport, hard to stay awake. So tired for work the next morning."
Cons: "I was traveling with two small children (my grandchildren ). The crew was unhelpful and unfriendly . I don't think I will fly SAS again"
Pros: "Crew was super sweet!"
Cons: "no vegetarian food I am always told should have ordered at booking but this option is always made obscure, difficult or impossible too cramped and plain full to capacity"
Pros: "Quick boarding and unboarding! Made up the time when we left a little late."
Cons: "Didn't get a little back of pretzels ;)"
Cons: "I was sitting next to a special needs man and the crew was extremely unhelpful towards him. He should not have been flying alone and they did not help him at all. When you handed out the customs form he told the stewardess he needed help and she ignored him. When I pressed the call button for him it took someone 35minutes to come back and then she told him she would help him after dinner. I pressed a call button the second time to help him find something and again it took over 30 minutes for someone to come back to us. If there was a real emergency this delay would have been a huge problem. The stewardess was extremely rude in general."
Pros: "From finding affordable tickets to the moment we left the flight we had a wonderful experience again on SAS. Boarding was simple, we left on time, the flight was smooth and enjoyable, crew and food wonderful. It was a super experience so thank you SAS!"
Cons: "Nothing negative at all."
Pros: "Having requested assistance due to breaking my leg, the service at Heathrow, Charlotte and JFK with American Airlines was excellent."
Pros: "Both crews from JFK to HEL and HEL to JFK were great. Very attentive and accommodating."
Cons: "Quite narrow seats and seat pitch in economy, but the price was right. Poor quality seatback screens but a good selection of films and tv"
Cons: "My headphones didn’t work"
Pros: "I enjoy my flight"
Cons: "Again no complains"
Pros: "I will recommend to my friends and families."
Cons: "The transfer was too complicated, long distance to walk, security check line, not enough time for transfer, had to run to catch the next flight"
Cons: "Flight was delayed,missed connection,lost bag"
Cons: "video was broken"
Pros: "The staff were exceptional , good food."
Cons: "Not really business class seats."
Pros: "Check- in to arrival was what I would expect from a flight. It was my first flight with Finnair and I will fly with this airline again."
Cons: "No complaints."
Cons: "Staff wasn’t helpful and gave false information"
Pros: "Express customs and immigration for connective flights with individual passes!"
Cons: "Total disaster. Back up lines at AA JFK . Staff at a loss, equipment ? Shortage of bins, no supervisors , ... deliberate chatting and slowing down upon manually going through majority of carry on."
Pros: "The airport it's very nice and clean.."
Cons: "The 40 min layover between SVO-HEL and HEL-JFK required security check and walking approx. 30-gate distance. It was well organized, but still straining."
Pros: "Hot towels distributed before meal."
Cons: "Sitting behind me plus the seat across from that in center was an adult with two children going to summer camp in US. There were 40 kids and several counselors on this flight. These two kids were much younger (4 or 5yrs) than any others going to camp. One of the kids could not sit still. The adult behind me sometimes held her in her lap which resulted in pushing on my seatback. While in her own seat the child did not have her seat belt on. Eventually the girl began using her arm rests on either side of the aisle to swing herself. I finally mentioned this and the lack of seat belt fastening to F.A. who said "They're from Latvia. These Eastern Europeans don't think about things the way you and I do." The child was blocking the aisle at times and the F.A. did nothing."
Cons: "Wifi spotty"
Cons: "Sound only came out of one ear from headphones"
Pros: "Yes, in general I like American Airlines so I was happy with flight in general"
Pros: "They gave us a warm cloth to wash our hands and face at the beginning of the flight. There was a bottle of water there too. We were constantly offered various drinks, especially water. The staff was extremely friendly and each of the flight attendants spoke about 4 languages."
Cons: "The entertainment system wasn't the best I've seen as of late. It's not a big deal, but it would be nice if they updated it!"
Cons: "announcement in English hard to understand"
Pros: "The good"
Cons: "No space on the aircraft. It was very cold the entire flight. Staff wasn't responsive to ewquests"
Cons: "16 hour overnight stop at helsinki airport."
Pros: "Blueberry juice. Ok flight."
Cons: "Seating pretty tight... as usual these days. Onboard entertainment system had no music option."
Cons: "The meal made me sick."
Cons: "Something that was unpleasant was if someone spoke through the announcement system it would be very loud through the headphones if someone is listening to a movie or music"
Pros: "Because of the delay taking off and refueling, they provisioned for an extra meal service. Choices were limited, but the food was decent. Crew was generally cordial and efficient. Even though there were only 13 empty seats, they made an effort to find us a place with an empty seat between us."
Cons: "We were stopped and grilled by AA personnel as if we were potential terrorists, even though we had TSA Pre-check clearly listed on our boarding cards. flight was 1 hr delayed boarding. Since the plane was a 747 and there were stronger than average headwinds, we had to stop in Bangot to refuel. Net result: 2 3/4 hr late arrival."
Cons: "Whoever designed and built this airplane should literally be INDICTED - AND I AM NOT KIDDING! We were in disbelief the moment we boarded and saw the airplane. 10 people across jammed into the row??!! - and on an long international flight?? - are you kidding??!! Further, these were the SMALLEST seats I have EVER been forced to sit in. Neither I, or my friend came close to fitting. We literally had to alternate getting up and standing because we were literally overlapping each other when we sat! (His shoulder and arm were literally on top of me!!). It was so bad that when the stewardess came rolling down the aisle with her cart, I had to be aware and see her in advance so I could literally TURN MY BODY OVER TO THE LEFT HALF ON TOP OF THE PERSON SITTING NEXT TO ME SO SHE WOULDN'T TAKE OFF MY ARM AND SHOULDER. ULTIMATELY, SOMEONE, OR MORE THAN ONE PERSON, IS GOING TO GET SERIOUSLY HURT BY THIS RECKLESS, GREED-DRIVEN DESIGN!! The OVERT GREED by the airline (American) clearly reflected by this in trying to JAM as many human beings into a flight as possible like Sardines is DISGUSTING!!! You simply DO NOT TREAT HUMAN BEINGS THIS WAY!! It is also clear evidence that there needs to be tighter standards, regulations and penalties by the FAA and what is allowed by airlines. AND I AM SENDING A LETTER TO THE FAA!!!"
Pros: "Staff was nice. Seat was standard."
Cons: "Small movie selection."
Cons: "I booked this through Finnair and it was a British Airways code share .I was unable to get the record locator for BA and could not check in prior to getting to the airport ."
Pros: "Empty seat next to me! Excellent crew services! Clean bathrooms!"
Pros: "Updated gate changes sent to phone was a life saver!"
Pros: "Everything good except getting bag after flight."
Cons: "Took over an hour at baggage claim."
Pros: "The meeting I was attending in NY got postponed so I lost the full 1/2 return ticket. Nothing I could do, all at once all kinds of small text appear in big and over 400 $ was lost. This is the last time I book with Kayak. Better pay a bit more directly with the airline but do not have a deal like the Kayak deal. So please remove from all your sites. Thank you VV"
Cons: "Passengers changing seats around."
Pros: "Traveled BA and it was lovely, as usual."
Cons: "The flight staff on this particular BA flight was not as accommodating and friendly as I am so accustomed to on BA. Perhaps the flight attendant in charge of our seats was having a bad day. Also, the food on our BA flights to and from NYC was not up to scratch and rather bland and ordinary, compared to their usual. that was a huge disappointment."
Pros: "For the first time ever I had a flight on British Airways where I did not feel like I wanted to choke somebody at the end of the flight - so I was pleasantly surprised at this particular BA flight."
Cons: "BA gates in NYC are abysmal - the entire terminal is... Why are the restaurants advertising being open to some specific time (well prior to the departure of this flight) yet then have staff holler at you that they are closed when you try to go in well before that time. It would have been very nice to have been able to sit down and have some dinner prior to the flight, but the rudeness of both of the two restaurants and their staff was worthy of the notoriety of NYC attitudes (which I don't generally see in mainstream NYC society)."
Pros: "Flights were on BA not Finnair"
Cons: "Ba website did not work properly."
Pros: "The only thing I liked was the ice cream that was served on the flight. And the Kerry Gold butter."
Cons: "What didn't I like? I didn't like that I bought a ticket from Finnair, got emails from Finnair, for some reason couldn't check in early on the Finnair website, arrived at the airport, waited in the absurdly long check-in line for Finnair only to find out that they had no record of me and I wasn't flying Finnair. Actually, I was on an American Airlines flight."
Cons: "My Finnair flight from London to New York was cancelled due to weather conditions in New York. I understand that. What made me very frustrated and angry is that when I contacted Finnair to reschedule the flight I was told the flight was managed by British Airways and I would have to contact them When I contacted British Airways they said it was a Finnair flight and I had to contact them. I finally had no recourse but to buy another ticket through another airline. I feel that I should be reimbursed for my Finnair ticket from London to New York! I paid for a flight I never took. (The Finnair flight from New York to London was fine.)"
Cons: "A lot of turbulence in the middle of the flight"
Cons: "Ingen underhållning ingen flyginformation otrevlig personal jag kommer inte att flyga Finnair igen. Jag och alla andra fick sitta att stirra på väggen framför oss i 7timmar den spanska personalen ska inte jobba för ett nordiskt flygbolag fy fan Med vänlig hälsning Benny"
Pros: "Video and radio were bad."
Cons: "Nothing was dairy free, staff did not even have access to ingredients so I could check myself."
Cons: "Disgusting meal, I left most of it on my tray. The promised entertainment systems were not working. There was no wifi on board either. These were both things I had looked for prior to booking this flight."
Pros: "Pleasant helpers moved me through the maze and queues"
Cons: "Airport is vast. Transport to T4Satellite left me in nowhere land for a long time. Had longer layover which was fortunate."
Pros: "Although I was in Economy, I got a window seat with no one next to me, which made things a lot less cramped."
Pros: "I liked my seat with more legroom. And there was very little turbulence."
Cons: "I wish there was access to blankets, it was very cold by the window. A better screen design maybe."
Cons: "I looked down between the seat “legs” and wall and there was so much garbage. Never ever seen so much garbage with any other airlines. Maybe just one customer? IDK because so much. I thought could it be accumulated from a number of previous flights?"
Cons: "No AC and awful smell"
Pros: "i did not feel claustrophobic"
Cons: "can't think of anything"
Cons: "I eat gluten free and the falafel salad the only gluten free entre option was not available. Also they were iut of orange juice during the second service. I would greatly appreciate gluten free choices. Thank you!"
Cons: "See above"
Pros: "Nice leg Space"
Cons: "They were missing lots of food on the menu. There was an delay but we didn’t get any info or apology."
Cons: "The seat bottom cushion was extremely uncomfortable."
Cons: "I prepaid for my luggage twice going and coming back and the counter person said it’s not n there system so I had to pay full fare twice not a happy camper."
Cons: "Missed our connection to Chicago."
Cons: "Boarding at KEF needs to be more organized."
Pros: "Pillows and blankets free of charge."
Cons: "You had to go through their customs to change plans. Then you had to board a bus to get carried over to your connecting plane. There was not enough time allowed between flights to do that. They did not have enough bathrooms for all the flights coming in at the Iceland airport. Iceland Air is basically a travel agency in an airplane for Iceland. A lot of pushing by the company to stop in Iceland for a few days and buy Iceland products. It was a lot of hassle to cross the Atlantic on Iceland Air, and I will try not to use them again."
Pros: "Great service, comfy chairs"
Cons: "I did not like that I had to pay $ 95.00 for my suitcase both ways, that felt like a rip off!"
Pros: "Got home safely"
Cons: "No meal was provided. Captain's announcement was barely heard - poor PA system or he or she did not speak clearly"
Cons: "The cabin heat was too high."
Cons: "There was no indication when I made the reservation that there were 2 types of economy fare. I had to pay 86 Euro extra per checked in case."
Pros: "Nice service"
Cons: "Long waits to board, wait for bus from term to plane; no clear direction from gate staff as to where queues were"
Pros: "Poor communication. Old planes. Late departures and arrivals. And the staff has zero f@;$s to give."
Cons: "See above."
Pros: "From Amsterdam to Reykjavik was not so bad."
Pros: "On time, comfortable, smooth and easy flights"
Cons: "Everything was fine no complaints"
Cons: "We had to take a bus when we disembarked from the plane in Reykjavik. For a national airline, you would think Icelandair would have jet bridges in their own country."
Pros: "Better movies assortment and also TV Cooking newtwork"
Pros: "Service on the plane was excellent. AMS is a very nice airport as well."
Cons: "Boarding announcements we inaudible."
Cons: "My laggade not arrived - both of our bags , my and my husband . There are all of hot closes there . It not possible to begin a trip in Iceland without special equipment !!!"
Cons: "Extensive delays"
Cons: "The boarding was bad"
Pros: "They left on time and arrived on time."
Cons: "Maybe, if not a meal, some snacks."
Pros: "Easy departure process."
Cons: "The space left for the legs if the front chair is reclined is a joke. Aren't you on greedy side? Oh excuse me; aren't you to much profit oriented? You celebrate the 80th anniversary of being in business, so the passengers got an cheap ice cream. Wow, you (Icelandair) really went crazy."
Cons: "Airport in Iceland severely overtaxed. Too many panes and people, not enough infrastructure"
Pros: "Sparking water"
Cons: "Rough landing. No snacks."
Pros: "The service was superior. They made sure my younger daughter were occupied and gave a small gift and snack. The movies were great way to pass the time, overall experience were great! We would be a return customer for sure!"

Cons: "Seat 8G does not have a window."
Cons: "Terrible boarding, no service or attendance, unprofessional and unfriendly attitude. I arrived 3 hours before departure and had to stand in lines that were not clearly defined for 2 and a half hours. Everybody complained. Even the luggage band when I checked my bag was broken. Nobody came to assist the passengers"
Pros: "Friendly staff. Clean aircraft"
Cons: "Flight was delayed again, never seen an airport so unorganized."
Cons: "The baggage took over an hour to come out. It was 11:30pm and we needed to pick up our rental car and still drive to our apartment in Reykjavik. We arrived at the apartment at 2:30am and had to leave by 9:00am to go to the Blue Lagoon. Wishing the baggage had come out much faster."
Pros: "Seat was comfortable"
Cons: "In addition to the above when i finally got to JFK my luggage was still lost"
Cons: "Delay on boarding"
Pros: "Can't think of a thing."
Cons: "Late. Crowded."

Cons: "The staff seems to be lacking the enthusiasm and warmth towards the passengers."
Pros: "New airplane."
Cons: "100% full"
Pros: "OK small flight to warsaw from Lviv"
Cons: "Took too long the flight to Lviv and my luggage never made it on the flight."
Cons: "They kept changing departure time from Warsaw to Lviv , and totally we were stocked at airport for 4 hours. Lot didn't provide any drink or food, and also they didn't give us any information about our flight, they just ignored us. We were very frustrated, our kids were hungry and thirsty but nobody from LOT company didn't care about it. They even didn't say "sorry " . I will not recommend this airline to my friends or to somebody else, just be careful with this airline."
Pros: "It took me to Warsaw"
Cons: "Very small, uncomfortable plane. Late."
Cons: "My family and I traveled to Poland several times using LOT Airline. They lost our luggage not once or twice, but three times. Each time, we were without our luggage for nearly a day and half. We are no longer using this airline. Also, their TV monitors/remotes lack accessibility as they do not offer closed captioning features for the deaf/hard-of-hearing. Another strike."
Pros: "Quiet flight, no issues"
Cons: "Not a Lot plane. A Neos charter plane leased by Lot. Italian crew."
Cons: "I bought my inlaws tickets with a shorter layover and it was horrible. It took them ‘much longer to get home. There was no plane waiting for them in Budapest and they got re-routed to Vienna. Which then took them to krakow. They had to take off their luggage everytime they got off the plane and they are 80 years old. There were no escalators or elevators. The airlines lost one of their suitcases and promised it the next day and they have not received it yet. Horrible flight."
Pros: "Price, non-stop to Warsaw In flight entertainment options pretty good."
Cons: "Extremely cramped and uncomfortable seats. Cabin was hot and humid, no air vents to control temps."

Pros: "The food was good and the crew very nice. The flight was smooth."
Cons: "The Warsaw-Newark leg took 10 hrs and a half, as opposed to 9 and a half. The Economy seat, although a little better than on other planes, is so small, and I’m average size! The announcements are so difficult to understand."
Cons: "My tv was not working , it’s a 9.5 hours flight.... it was not fixed and they said they cannot offer me another seat with working tv My table when I opened it for the first time was all dirty with dried up tomato sauce and crumbs , they did clean it but it should not happen in the first place"
Pros: "Helpful Crew"
Cons: "Messed up security clearance arrangement. Total confusion about secondary clearance requirement, only informed at boarding at gate that a lot of travelers needed secondary clearance. No objections to secondary clearance, but procedure a joke. Machine was half way down the terminal. Half hour wait, and you could have left your carry on with somebody else, get cleared by machine, pick up your bag again and get on board."
Pros: "Very roomy well designed plane. Good communication from pilot and staff."
Cons: "I lost my iPad during this flight. Luckily it was found in the Warsaw airport but the airline did not do anything to help me besides giving me some phone numbers and email addresses. It would cost more to ship it back to the US then the iPad is worth. It would be nice if lot would provide help to get it to me."
Cons: "Had to ask if I get some food too, because I was asleep and as I woke up everyone had food just not I. After 10 minutes I asked for some food. Also the personal could have gotten more times around to bring water.

Cons: "No thigh support"
Cons: "See above."
Cons: "There was an agent at the gate in London who went around asking to see everyone's boarding passes.
