Cons: "Great crew!"
Pros: "Crew professionalism."
Cons: "More food more room - but hey that’s what we always want"
Cons: "Im paid for confort. But give a economic. Maybe mix with golairline."
Pros: "These Comfort+ seats had the most legroom of any airline (Delta, JetBlue, American etc) short of Business class that I can remember in my adult life!"

Cons: "thin seat cushions"
Pros: "The crew was okay. Could be better"
Cons: "Variety of snacks and drinks"
Pros: "Easy boarding"
Cons: "Ensure the entertainment is working not able to watch movies on an eight plus hour flight"
Cons: "Add A Display Board For When Cabin Sections Are Boarding"
Cons: "Late taking off. Let's leave on time"
Pros: "The crew was very friendly and helpful. With the plane full they managed to serve all with smiles on their faces and solved all problems, including cabin luggage problem."
Cons: "Good"
Cons: "After a delay of about an hour on a very full flight the gate agent asked for volunteers to check their rollaboard suitcases. The gate agents then allowed those who checked their rollaboards to board before Zone 1,which was fine. However, a bunch of people without gate check stickers on the rollaboards were also allowed to board before Zone 1, which was aggravating. There was a long delay on the tarmac, during which we had to pull back to the gate or to a maintenance area before we finally took off. When we arrived in Vegas there was no gate for us to pull into, which led to another long delay of an already long and delayed flight."
Cons: "This was my worst EVER airline experience. It was delayed 27 hours and the snow was not the only problem. When we finally got on board a plane we sat on the runway for over two hours - then they FORGOT to load the luggage!!!"
Pros: "Food was great Legroom was excellent Stewardess super nice Was able to sleep"
Cons: "No leg rest"
Pros: "very nice and willing stewardesses"
Cons: "tragic little place for legs, lack of space"
Pros: "Smooth flight; on time; easy check-in"
Cons: "Food was o.k., but not great"
Cons: "Flight cancelled due to weather that was never bad but on the potential of bad weather. Had to scramble so my 18 year old son was not stranded overnight in a strange place and Delta does not help. Only rebooked a flight itinerary for the next day for a 4 hour flight with connections on a 1 hour direct flight. Spent an hour on line to figure out what to do. #neverdelta"
Cons: "My daughter was booked on this itinerary and was finishing her last leg of journey. Complete ticket was booked thru Delta Airlines. Her flight from Amsterdam to New York today operated by KLM, was delayed by few minutes. And Delta flight from JFK to Cleveland DL4084 was preponed by airlines. Result was my daughter was not allowed to board the aircraft. Worst was yet to come. Your staff at the gate offered her a flight to Cleveland for next day at 3:30 pm??? Means around 24 hours later. Is this how you behave with a girl of 19 years, asking her to stay at the airport. She was refused Hotel and Lounge stay by your team!!! Is this what you call customer services??? Obscene services is what I would like to term it as!!! My daughter asked them to give this is writing, which was refused to her. Why are your people scared to put it in writing if everything that you are doing is right by the Law??? I was left with no other option but to book her on American Airlines flight today departing at 9 pm to ensure that little girl doesn’t have to spend close to 24 hours at airport by paying $423. Who is going to bear the loss of money and mental torture that your team has given to me and my daughter???? I shall be awaiting your response as to what do you have to say to this pathetic attitude of your team. Rajesh Mendiratta Sent from my iPhone Rajesh"
Pros: "The flight for getting us therw"
Cons: "No food and no entertainment"
Pros: "I paid 60 bucks for an emergency row exit, take get some extra leg room and space so that I would be fresh when I arrived in Munich. However KLM allowed a passenger — who did not pay for the emergency row to sit next to me because he needed the extra space because he was a liarge man, and clearly didn’t fit very well in the economy seats. Thus I I lost all the extra space and actually would of preferred a regular economy seat. that would’ve been more preferential then paying $60 and getting less space than I would’ve had it in a regular economy. I understand the other passengers comfort was important and if that was the case he should’ve paid $60 as well."
Cons: "I did not get a choice of seat for the one and a half hour flight from Amsterdam to Munich and I sat in a middle row for the first time in 20 years."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "It was not acceptable and very disappointed that flight DL391 from SDQ to NY-JFK was delayed till it left at 4:40pm because there were no crew members to bring the aircraft to STO DGO the night before as it is usually done so that the aircraft sleeps over in las Americas. We were at the airport at 4:30am because the flight was scheduled to depart at 6:05am we were lucky to be able to rebook for a flight SDQ-ATL DL576 for the same day hoping to make the connection ATL-IND. Unfotunately that flight was rerouted to Charlotte due to bad weather conditions with a delay of 3 hrs before it landed in ATL thus missing our connection to INDI and had to sleep in ATL and leave the next day to IND thus missing a meeting commitment that we had in IND. We should and expect to be compensated by Delta for this."
Pros: "Timely, clean"
Cons: "A little chaotic at boarding time"
Pros: "Good movie selection"
Cons: "Just about everything else was mediocre"
Pros: "The flight crew was friendly and personable. Beverage service was consistent and efficient. Entertainment and free WiFi messaging were great perks."
Cons: "The positives don’t even come close to offsetting the misery of Delta’s seats. I honestly don’t remember the last time I was so cramped and uncomfortable. I’m not an abnormally large man - 6 feet 200 lbs - and there was no room for my legs or my shoulders in an “upgraded economy” seat. I fly weekly for work on another major airline, and only took this one in a crunch. But I am quite certain this was my last Delta flight and I’ll be advising others similarly. The service and entertainment aren’t sufficient to mask an awful seat configuration."
Pros: "Food was amazing tasted and seasoned well. Not bland, really good salad and chicken."
Cons: "Delay. (liked kayak delay updates tho!) crew not very attending and it looked like they didnt care. In order to keep folks busy because of the delay. They gave out immigration and customs papers out, but refused to give pen. I literally didn't had one and answer from the crew was like that. " Excuse me do you have a pen by any chance?" . "NO! I dont! asked them" pointing out to other crew members, -this is the best part- the female stewardess had clearly visibly a pen in her front shirt pocket! Sitting around and trying to kill time and no pen still. While busy with food and other stuff, i fell asleep. Then after a while when going to the restroom i asked the male steward if he would have a pen please, he pointed out they dont have any pens. ( please note he marked on his check board, who is getting which meal on the first class)"
Pros: "It was a short easy flight that actually landed early."
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Very comfortable and didn't feel cramped. Quick flight."
Cons: "No choice in snack and I couldn't eat what I was given. Staff appeared checked out and not bothered. No entertainment but it was a quick flight."
Pros: "The flight was calm"
Cons: "What I didn’t like is the inconviece where we had to change flight hour and aircraft and move to another one and we were delay for one all hour plus the 3 hours that we were there before the hour of departure that is really really bad"
Pros: "Giid free sandwixh. Very good entertainment system. Good seats."
Pros: "clean. friendly. decent snacks."
Cons: "warm cabin. small seats with no head support. not enough drink cart passes."
Pros: "What an easy flight. Run very well!"
Cons: "The crew seemed a bit tired, but it’s the season"
Pros: "The staff is very friendly. Most pleasant airline I've flown with."
Pros: "Service was outstanding"
Cons: "TV froze and was never fixed."
Cons: "Force me to take a bad seat"
Cons: "The plane was late to JFK and then we had to wait for them to deboard and prepare for us to get one. Now we are in DCA and we can’t even get to our gate for another 10 mins"
Pros: "We'd paid extra for main cabin so hot to choose seats and got in flight entertainment.. Staff were friendly."
Cons: "No free wifi."
Pros: "Good selection of free, in-flight entertainment."
Cons: "Our flight was delayed on the runway, but that wasn't the airlines fault."
Pros: "Some of the ground staff was trying to be helpful."
Cons: "That we had to sleep like homeless people on the floor of JFK airport as the airline was not able to provide for a crew and therefore cancelled the flight. The airline cancelled the flight at 1.30 in the morning so no one was able to get a stay in a hotel not did the airline take any action towards helping the stranded passengers. We were given blankets and pillows. The best thing was the ground staff getting rude after all passengers complaining. They were basically saying we should get stuffed since we were booked for a flight next day same day. This is shameful! Needless to say that I will not fly this airline again!"
Pros: "That I made it to Dublin"
Cons: "The flight was delayed due to aircraft issues making us 2 hours late for vacation. THIS IS MY HARD EARNED MONEY! I literally put blood, sweat and many many tears into this trip. The flight attendant was so rude on this trip. It was like she was absolutely offended by my presence. I barely even spoke to her except to make sure of my vegetarian tray to which I got the nasty reply "You'll have to wait because I don't have it with me now". If I wasn't so focused on sleeping as much as I could I would have written her name down. No complimentary cocktails for Preferred Seating? Seriously? What did I upgrade for exactly? Literally four inches of space? Late, rude, money sucking industry who holds no accountability for wrong doings. Don't get into the Health Industry.. you'll kill people with this flippant attitude. Bleh.. I doubt I'll fly with Delta again. The thought of having to do so turns my stomach."
Cons: "This is possibly the worst airplane food ive ever had. Ever. The chicken didn't look nor taste like chicken and it was in some weird green chickpea sauce?? Very unpleasant."
Pros: "Everything that British Airways tried to do to help us when Delta didn't want to take ownership for their screwups!"
Cons: "Not only did we miss our Delta connection but when Delta rebooked us on a British Airways flight they refused to help when British Airways could not access our tickets. they kept saying since it was Virigin Atlantic who we originally booked through that VA woulkd have to fix it, even thought Delta was the actual carrier and the ones that did the rebooking onto the British Airways flight"
Pros: "On my ticket it clearly indicate that I am entitled to 2 check in baggage. Delta completely refused to honor this. They said am only entitled 1 piece, and therefore I have to pay for the other luggage. I was forced to borough money from someone at the airport just so that I could board the flight."
Cons: "I am asking that my money be refunded. And next time delta should honor and respect agreements. And be more professional"
Cons: "Almost everything"
Cons: "The WORST experience of my life. My flight was delayed 12 hours overnight due to "weather" and since it was reportedly because of uncontrollable weather delta didn't have to do anything for me so I slept in the JFK airport overnight, they wouldn't even give a $59 pass to their sky miles club for the afternoon. It felt like an easy excuse so they wouldn't have to do anything since there were other airlines still flying out of JFK and to go CLE before my rescheduled flight which makes me believe it wasn't all weather. Since the flight was delayed 12 hours instead of being cancelled they wouldn't let me switch to a different airline either. Then, in the morning when it was rescheduled to it was again delayed because they first couldn't find a captain and then couldn't find a fort mate. We finally took off and arrived in Cleveland only to wait another 30 minutes for a gate and a ground crew that they couldn't find. I will never fly delta again."
Pros: "Crew was great. The video game quiz re knowledge of cities worldwide was entertaining and educational"

Unable to check in a day before the flight. No seat allocation. Sat at the gate and waited for a seat, even when boarding still no seat. Eventually got one. Very poor.

Pros: "Flight as such was good and smooth"
Cons: "Better food, but nowadays unless you fly on business or first you are doomed and cramped beyond belief, any improvement comes at a price"
Pros: "Clean less of the plane"
Cons: "Entertainment system did not work at all"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Very long delay, got bumped for a flight the next day. Horrible experience"
Cons: "Boarding was delayed. Missed the connection flight."
Pros: "Personal finnair were very unpleasant and offered me for 30 min flight to Tallinn wait 8.5 hours flight to Stockholm and coming next day afternoon. Everything was too bad. I had to get taxi and boat and coming in Tallinn. I lost time and money. I never going to use finnair and kayak again."
Cons: "Everything. Worst flight in my life"
Cons: "Finnair had the worst leg room I've ever had in 50 years of traveling. It was so TIGHT that my knees were pressing up agains the seat in front of me the whole 8 hours of flight, even though I am only 5'7"! I felt really sorry for those passengers who were taller. Finnair also lost my checked in bag and delivered it 36 hours later without providing any compensation. Coming back the flight was delayed due to mechanical reasons, which caused a number of passengers miss connecting flights. This is one of the things that can happen to any airline, but only Finnair failed to provide an agent to take care of the passengers who missed their flights. So, after a 2 hour delay and 7 hours of traveling in the air, the stranded passengers had to find an agent in JFK who would rebook their flights. One of the worst traveling experiences. Will never travel Finnair again!"
Pros: "Lounge is nice, if busy. Finnair staff offered me a better seat at check in. Seats flatten out and have many features. Tons of convenient items all marimekko - nice pillows, blankets and slippers. Helpful and attentive staff, always check on you but also give you plenty of time to snooze. Nice skin products and omg, clean bathroom. Easy to relax."
Cons: "The Asian vegetarian meal is rice and chickpeas! Was not too bad but also my breakfast was more chickpeas and grilled zucchini. I never requested a "vegetarian breakfast" - feel bad wasting food like this. I sent the veg salad back opted for fruit salad croissant."
Pros: ".My flight left on time ,smooth landing and the cabin temperature seemed more normal than the usual cold interior. Cabin crew were friendly and helpful from JFK to Helsinki and Helsinki back to JFK . Overall a good airline but far from premium."
Pros: "The shortest flight time between NYC and St. Petersburg Russia. Good connecting time, smooth transition in Helsinki."
Cons: "I have never used this airline before and as it was highly rated, I was glad to give it a try. The seats were crammed together very tightly, even for me, a short person! So, the flight was uncomfortable. Then the food was poor. The selection of films was uninspired. The service was indifferent, disinterested, ungenerous. There was something meager, miserly in the whole experience. They are obviously maximizing profits at the expense of the customer, who seems totally disregarded. I would not choose this airline again!"
Pros: "Airplane was nice."
Cons: "I paid $90 for economy comfort for my flight and did not get an economy comfort seat. I am very disappointed with Finnair in this. They will not refund my money at the airport and now I need to go through their home office for a refund. It was bad enough not having any extra leg room on a red eye when you are over 6 feet tall but now I have to jump through hoops to get my money back."
Cons: "We missed are connecting flight"
Pros: "They were on time"
Cons: "Low level service, quarrel at the check in about size of the hand luggage (fits all standards, excepts self imposed Finnair rule <8 kg). Poor to no service."
Cons: "Delayed"
Cons: "Delay"
Pros: "I liked service very much."
Cons: "Seats were too closely spaced. Like a coffin. Will probably not fly Finnair unless the price is next to nothing."
Pros: "Good movie selection"
Cons: "Only drinks with dinner, other airlines serve the whole time. Limited selection of drinks. Other airlines do not limit. Not enough leg room and I'm only 5'7. Seat in front leaned back to far."
Cons: "There is no wi-fi There is no possibility to charge your mobile"
Cons: "Usually, in the morning, a light breakfast is served. This time, there was none."
Cons: "30 min between flying"
Cons: "After waiting around in the airport for almost 10 hours we were finally told the flight was cancelled and my direct flight turned into a taxi transfer and 3 flights with a day lost on my vacation. I was not offered any compensation however I heard some passengers were given $7 food vouchers to be spent only in a small convenience store that was the only store open."
Cons: "nobody from justfly and kayak even tried to argued that I didn't missed the flight and I was one of hundreds that was in line way before flight time"
Pros: "It was cancelled"
Cons: "It was cancelled"
Pros: "Good"
Cons: "Breakfast"
Cons: "Had to rush to my next flight and the gates were far apart."
Pros: "American Airlines flight didn't even have tvs, chairs were old and outdated. Not worth the price. Now days there are some standards that are expected"
Pros: "Power in every seat. Great headphones. Solid in-flight entertainment."
Pros: "Overnight flight and not full so could stretch out."
Cons: "It really was not Finnair, it was American. When I tried checking in Finnair had no knowlege of my ticket. I had to read the fine print to find the name American Airlines. Even the woman at Finnair was not sure, and thought that it was run by Brittish Air."
Pros: "Great plane Flight attendant Caroline fantastic"
Pros: "The crew was awesome , the food, the capt. Was the best didn't feel take off or landing overall. Except for room in coach I give it a 9 out of 10"
Cons: "No room in coach"
Pros: "The meal for dinner was nice with wine, good old fashioned meal service. The plane was clean. Blankets and pillows provided. Staff seemed efficient. The flight was operated by Iberian so it was all in Spanish. Okay for us as we speak Spanish."
Cons: "The seats had so little padding. We are not very tall and the seats are just too close together. The poor fellow behind me could not make a move without bashing the back of my seat. Not his fault. If you are over 5'5" tall you are in trouble. It is too bad that flying has become so uncomfortable in coach."
Pros: "Everything was good ,plane was on time,food was good for Airline food and was clean."
Cons: "The crew was pleasant but they needed to smile more . Other than that everything was good."
Cons: "Need wifi to work. Highly dissapointed that BRITISH air doesn't have this feature. Most airlines do!!"
Pros: "Other than the fact that it's a direct flight from jfk to Helsinki, there's not much else to like about it"
Cons: "Even though we paid extra for comfort seats, the seats were extremely uncomfortable! Not just the lack of sufficient leg room (especially when the person in front reclined) but most importantly the quality of the cushions. They were like cardboard and extremely uncomfortable to sit on. We were not able to sleep at all due to the discomfort! Additionally, they lost my luggage. It has been more than 24 hrs since I landed and I still haven't heard anything from them as to where my luggage was, when I should expect it why it still hasn't been delivered. Overall, a terrible experience."
Pros: "Lenght of flight"
Cons: "Babies crying :("
Pros: "Decent food."
Cons: "$100 for your second checked bag and then another $100 if it's overweight. I think this was criminal for an international flight, and I will not fly Finn Air again because of this. Also you have to pay 25 Euro for your seat after already booking the flight. Additionally the leg room is average at best."
Pros: "Did not have the special meal i requested"
Cons: "Very old plane No leg room No tv Grumpy crew Over an hour delayed"
Pros: "Head phone jack was not working in my seat."
Pros: "Good American Arline's crew"
Cons: "Operated by American Airlines. This was a different filght than was in our tickets because we were late for our connection flight. There were no help from Finnair to find a "replacement" flight."
Pros: "The crew members were very pleasant and attentive."
Cons: "The food was easily the worst I've ever had on an international flight and entertainment was virtually non-existent as the view from my "premium" bulkhead seat was obstructed by the overhead storage. This American Airways aircraft is in serious need of updating if it is to continue to be used as international transportation."
Pros: "Liked the upgrade seat"
Cons: "Food was aweful both the dinner and the breakfast the following morning ."
Cons: "very old plane, food choices limited, entertainment system not working"
Cons: "Nothing was dairy free, staff did not even have access to ingredients so I could check myself."
Cons: "Finnai leased this plane from EuroAtlantic. The seats were uncomfortable, entertainment system didn't work, crew was careless... It was a light from horrow! Plane was at least 20 years old!"
Cons: "no food on the first flight no private tv they tell you can have wi fi entertainment but you have to pay for it the staff was rude tell also told me my cary on luggage could not be taken on board because there was no more space so i had to cary all my things for two flights but once i came in into the plane there was plenty of space. the seats had a very low head rest"
Cons: "Excellent"
Pros: "No one was traveling, airport calm, preTSE always nice This wasa codeshare--actuallyAA"

Pros: "Good footroom in Main Cabin Extra."
Cons: "Delayed 5 hours. No power or individual VOD at seat."
Pros: "Boarding"
Cons: "Food"
Cons: "An included breakfast would have been appreciated."
Cons: "Even though we were not rushed between flights, our luggage didn't make it onto the plane."
Cons: "Please provide good and reasonable price inflight food. Also seats were not comfortable."
Pros: "The crew was great. I mostly slept through the whole flight, but they were very welcoming."
Cons: "I probably should have paid more for a more comfy seat."
Pros: "It was punctual"
Cons: "I was sitting in the middle seat"
Cons: "Seats were uncomfortable; no complimentary snacks."
Pros: "Clean and pleasant"
Cons: "Poor food service."
Pros: "Good leg room for an economy flight"
Pros: "There was a USB port to charge my devicw"
Cons: "The service was minimal, they only offered water when you got on the plain and once at the end of the flight."
Pros: "Friendly crew, boarding and deplaning was very smooth."
Cons: "Limited legroom, cabins could be more accomodating."
Cons: "Cabin was very cold"
Pros: "Comfortable"
Cons: "No food, 6 hour flight"
Cons: "Delays"
Cons: "The terminal at JFK was a nightmare. Crowded. Overheated. Filthy. And no electrical outlets anywhere."
Pros: "Getting through security and boarding was very fast and efficient. Left 15 minutes early since plane filled up so quick."
Cons: "The flight is six hours and a complimentary meal is not provided. Planned to buy their hot meal but they ran out halfway through the plane. Having enough food for the whole plane is a must."
Pros: "flight attendants uniforms"
Cons: "Bare minimum no headphones no snack-even pretzels/peanuts one drink really awful bare bones"
Pros: "Free food box for kids."
Pros: "Seating was good."
Cons: "What appeared to be the cooling system leaked onto me from above the seat. The blankets were not new as there was hair (not mine--different color), dried snot, and what looked like dandruff on two blankets in the row."
Pros: "I got to my destination safely"
Cons: "I paid a ridiculous amount for it"
Pros: "Comfort was good as well as refreshements"
Cons: "Representative at JFK told me my connecting flight to Brussels would be delayed as a result of the first leg being delayed. Upon arrival to KEF I discovered my second leg departed without me. Please be sure that your representatives do not LIE to customers as it is misleading and unnecessary. I usually have great experiences with this airline and this misinformation was rather disappointing."
Pros: "Plane were clean."
Cons: "1. No Food service except water. 2. Flight was delayed. 3. At RFK airport no better directions. Not a good experience."
Cons: "We were delayed for over three hours and stuck on the tarmac with little to no updates. Needless to say, we missed our connecting flight to the final destination and were not treated kindly upon arrival by the "help" desk. I am an experienced and regular traveler, but I will most likely never fly Icelandair after this."
Pros: "Flight in Saga Class was excellent. And, use of BA lounge at JFK was a real plus."
Cons: "Security was a pain with no TSA PreCheck."
Cons: "Food and alcohol and headphones weren't free. The movies were very old."
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: "Flight good. Missed the pay for food trolley, so didn't eat."
Cons: "Reykavic airport has the least amenities I have ever experienced. Very few seats in the lounge. Most are forced to stand or lie on the floor. Don't think that getting through the gate will mean getting on plane, it's too another waiting room with a few seats, mainly standing. The airport has no seated restaurants or cafes. So getting off a plane hungry id not pleasant. I will never again fly to and from New York via this 'airport'"
Pros: "Safe and pleasant."
Cons: "I arrived my destination 24hrs late. 2 unplanned stopovers. Terrible experience."
Pros: "All was smooth and comfortable. Thanks"

Pros: "I liked the idea of having a layover in Iceland."
Cons: "Really, this airline sets a new level of bad amongst a skyfull of many bad airlines. It's no longer worth the little money saved (very little) to fly on this airline."
