On arrival at our destination we had to wait until a gate was available. We arrived almost four hours later. I had to cancel and rearrange my appointments. I don't even recall hearing I'm sorry for the inconvenience. Some kind of compensation should have been provided. Some kind of"

Cons: "Great"

Cons: "Flight was delayed over 3 hours"

Pros: "The crew was very pleasant the entire trip."
Cons: "The TV set in the Head rest did not work. The plane had some technical difficulty following the clearing from the gate at which point we sat on the Tarmac and then taxied back to the gate with a statement of it being up to 2 hours to repair the situation. We were compensated even with additional snacks or meals while siting on the plane. I was delayed on my travel going forward from MCO to further points in Florida."

Pros: "The Dunkin Donuts coffee"

Pros: "All went well even with the slight delay. Great crew. Smooth flight."

Pros: "Everything's my"

Pros: "From boarding to arrival the experience was very good."

Pros: "Extra legroom"

Pros: "JetBlue gave each passenger a $150 credit"
Cons: "The plane was delayed by 5.5 hours. We had a 6:45 pm reservation that didn't leave till 12:15 AM. We got home Monday morning at 4 am. Normally it wouldn't be "terrible" but my son was starting a new position that Monday. I learned my lesson, don't book the last flight out. I just don't understand why they didn't get new equipment and a new crew sooner. As it was they had to fly in a different plane in and flew up a crew from Ft. Lauderdale who flew us home to Ft. Lauderdale. I'm still not sure what caused this problem."

Pros: "Love the boarding, inflight service, entertainment and on time departure and arrival"
Cons: "Every thing was perfect. This kind of experience is rare in my frequent travels."

Pros: "My first time on Jet Blue and I was impressed. Clean comfortable seats with their own entertainment screens for only a two hour flight. After my nightmare with Air China this felt like heaven."
Cons: "The flight was delayed three hours due to mechanical issues. But better safe than dead."

Pros: "Jet blue has friendly staff"
Cons: "We departed 1.25 hrs late."

Pros: "From beginning to end iit was made a pleasant experience by the people working ar Jetblue."
Cons: "Now that's a hard question."

Cons: "The delays is just a hassle due that I am sick person. On August 5th my flight was suppose to leave at 2:30 am didn't leave until 6:41 am that's 4 hours and ten minutes waiting in a wheel chair with no food to eat. August 19th the same situation suppose to leave at 10:45 pm didn't leave until 1 am. The crew members were terrific them trying to keep us calm."

Pros: "Very easy flight, good service."
Cons: "Baggage claim was ridiculous. Had to wait a long time for our bags because for some reason they were loaded on with a flight from Boston that arrived after the Ft Myers flight. My suitcase finally showed up and had a large black streak down the front of it."

Pros: "Flight left on time and arrived early to destination."

Pros: "More options on the entertainment menu. Needed that for my longer flight I connected from. Great snack options and very courteous staff. I enjoyed their company out of all my flights that day!"
Cons: "I would like to see all TAP planes come with a standard entertainment option on the headrest in front of you with the advanced menu option of movies, games, radio, etc. and ensure all headphone jacks are operational. (This flight it wasn't working well)"

Pros: "Me encantó la gentileza de enviar correos electrónicos para mantenerme informada."

Cons: "Flight was delayed more than 6 hours and we missed the connection. The only alternative offered was the same flight 2 days later. To avoid similar risk we went to FLL on the delayed flight, but we were responsible for transportation and hotel for 2 days! Understandable that they can't control the weather, but no excuse for forcing us to stay or paying extra."

Cons: "The flight was very delayed, but I had to wait the whole time because JetBlue will sometimes take off on time even after they emailed you about a delay. So I spent hours at the airport."

Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Updates and courteous staff that carried on to work on our flight from the previous one."
Cons: "Towards the 4th and 5th delay information was confusion on why the delaying and approvals that were needed to continue the flight. Potentially a more honest and realistic delay of 4-5 hour shift initially would've been more comforting than being told 5 times our flight is delayed yet once again."

Pros: "Efficient boarding, clean & comfortable seats."

Pros: "Pilot was funny and staff was very professional."
Cons: "That boarding was backwards with the last rows going on first :-("

Cons: "With many late afternoon flights to/from Orlando in the summer, weather is a factor. My 7:35pm flight was delayed until 12:30AM, arrived after 3AM. Tough flight. Onboarding crew was very pleasant and I was thankful that JetBlue was able to find, what I am assuming was another crew, to bring us home. At least it didn't cancel and have to find a hotel room in NEWARK. FLT127 6/26/17. NWK-MCO"

Pros: "The fly attendance was so nice that he even made a toy for my baby girl."

Pros: "The crew was very nice and attentive. Although the aircraft was a little dated, it was a smooth ride given the weather. The pilot was excellent."

Pros: "Jet Blue is great! Very accommodating and friendly!"

Pros: "I liked that I got a fire exit seat, but then was made to think as if I had a special duty to the stewardess who demanded my attention to this, I guess, privilege. I just wanted to go to sleep."
Cons: "Plane was 2 hours late, pretty much overshadowed everything else I didnt like."

Pros: "crew was good"
Cons: "Four hours late. asked early on what was going on told that the flight coming in was late. then was told an hour before plane arrives it'll be another hour car because maintenance crew had to check things out. LAME!"

Pros: "The best flight ever, the crew, the attention, the flight, everithing great! Even the snacks!"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Good service"
Cons: "Gate crew not given information about reason or extent of delay. Once on board there was another delay with no explanation."

Pros: "Everything else typical JetBlue great."
Cons: "Gate attendants on overly loud speakers shouting orders and other nonsense. Made for a very unpleasant experience. Not typical of JetBlue. Retrain or replace them. They had no control of the process."

Cons: "Extremely long delay. I didn't like that the delay updates were sent incrementally - I know that it's impossible to forecast this sometimes but it seemed like this was unnecessarily optimistic, and the 30 minute pushbacks became annoying and inconvenient."

Pros: "Crew finally moved me"
Cons: "X large xtra loud passenger beside me window seat He over flowed into my seat that I paid for He refused to Stowe his carry on after three times being told by crew he took the arm over and repeatedly turned my volume full blast hurting my ears I was offered a drink I think a flight would be appropriate and ban that passenger on future trips"

Cons: "Plane was delayed by 4 hours"

Pros: "Crew excellent...seats small and not too comfortable for business class."

Pros: "Lufthansa always great. Comfortable seats, good and safe service."
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Nice comfortable flight"
Cons: "misspellt my name!"

Pros: "The service and space on the airplane were excellent."
Cons: "The boarding was a little chaotic but that may be a result of the limited space available at Newark Airport."

Pros: "The Lufthansa service starting with the baggage checkers in Newark NJ. They provide service and a enjoyable flying experience."
Cons: "The layover in Frankfort was long and the gate we went out is in need of an upgrade but B10"

Pros: "Large leg room"
Cons: "Flight late missed connection flight for me. TV on arm, too small too close difficult to rewind had to shut down during descent while seatback TVs were still allowed to play"

Pros: "Very professional crew !!"
Cons: "Nothing to write ."

Pros: "The service was top notch and the comfort of economy class is better than any American airline I have been on."
Cons: "U cannot think of anything."

Pros: "The convenience of an early arrival time in Frankfurt to catch another connecting flight to my final destination"
Cons: "Lufthansa was GROSSLY late to depart,for no apparent reason, causing me to miss my connection! Lufthansa then arranged for the cheapest and LATEST flight available as an alternate connection causing me to miss a very important family event.. Very disappointed.."

Pros: "Cleanliness, entertainment"
Cons: "Food and legrooms have to be the worst in international flights."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "The birding officer didn't inform me about the visa requirements to cross from Dusslouf to Vinna airport. This caused a big problem for me in the airport, where I: 1- Wasn't allowed to catch my flight ti Vinnea and this was both financial and time lost for me. 2- I was locked in Dussluff airport for more than 14 hours, I was threatened to be sent back to USA or any other country. This caused physiological damage for me, as I been treated like an animal 3- I was asked to pay for my new ticket ( Dussloff - Istanbul-Amman )"

Cons: "Flight delayed 5 hrs"

Cons: "Ridiculous policy that couldn't get seat until 23 hours in advance, then that wasn't even true. Then misinformed me about what kind of seat I had been assigned. Then insisted I check a bag that did not need to be checked. Then the food was inedible. Flight happened to be late so I missed my connection, and they offered some more misinformation in that regard; There were of course human beings (staff) to deal with, but they had been reduced by Lufthansa's rules and systems so they were just robots, repeating over and over again inflexible policies. Horrible!"

Pros: "On time. Fast boarding and un boarding. Crew is very friendly."
Cons: "No tv, though understandably on a short flight."

Pros: "Plenty of room"
Cons: "Lack of good movies"

Cons: "Entertainment center was not working properly. Had to be rebooted twice."

Pros: "I loved the choice of movies"
Cons: "Lack of space"

Pros: "Unusually rough and crowded flight though that is hardly the fault of the airline."
Cons: "In economy class, there should either be adequate room for average sizes people at the least or seats should NOT be allowed to tilt back."

Cons: "i missed this connection was put on a united flight and was bumped down from business to economy. no apologies, no effort whatsoever to make up"

Cons: "The flight was late for 2 hrs with no explanation"

Pros: "The staff was not friendly at all. For international flight, especially long ones the seats should be able to go back further and not feel like a board, the seats were uncomfortable and small. The area between first class and the back of the plane had air issues, and I was sweating and so hot it woke me up, so on a 10 hour flight I got 1 hour of sleep. Ruined my first day of vacation."
Cons: "Everything was aweful except for the movie selections."

Cons: "Seats were beyond uncomfortable unless someone was shorter than 5 feet tall. Zero amenities. I know it was the economy section but our 4 tickets were close to $6000.00. A few perks would have been appreciated."

Cons: "The flight was cancelled, I waited on the service center line for over 3 hours and in the end had to take a 8hr train ride in order to get to not completly miss my sailing trip. I arrivd to my boat 10hrs late when I was scheduled to take a 1.5hr flight and would have arrived 5 hours early."

Pros: "Entertainment options vastly expanded and improved Attentive staff Good check-in Decent boarding - some organisation of boarding by seat - prevents roadblocks by people trying to get to back while those in front are still putting their stuff away and blocking aisle."
Cons: "Given menus for a mediocre meal Booked window seat to sleep - given aisle at last minute when boarding Given drink then meal for overnight flight - meal would be nice - more time to sleep"

Pros: "The crew came round with bottled water multiple times during the trip and even after taking off 15 min late, we still landed 30 mins early and the luggage came out quickly."
Cons: "The meal before landing consisted of nothing but the worst ham sandwich I've ever had the mis-fortune to be served: reminiscent of Bulgarian Airlines in the 80's."

Pros: "Big plane and there is a lower level for toilets that makes it easy for passengers to access and not be close to bathrooms"
Cons: "Movies choices were not current. Haven been on Delta and United, the choices on Lufthansa were not that good."

Pros: "New airplane"
Cons: "The front seat has sharp edges at knee level. Wen the front passenger recline his seat it killed my knees."

Pros: "The basics were fine."
Cons: "The crew on the flight was really loud and talked about unprofessional things. Every time I was woken up it was by a flight attendant talk to another attendant really loud across the plane. Also, this was advertised as Lufthansa but was actually United. Kayak seems to do this frequently, and as a customer it is confusing and disappointing."

Pros: "The crew was wonderful and very accommodating. We were also very impressed by the plane itself. The seating was the most comfortable either of us has experienced on an overseas flight."
Cons: "Good for entertainment but the headphone insert in my particular seat would only play through one ear. Not a headphone issue, they worked fine in another screen. Inconvenient for a long flight."

Cons: "Cramped"

Cons: "Breakfast was just a roll. I would have preferred eggs."

Pros: "Professional and courteous flight attendants."

Cons: "Seats have too little legroom. Even pushed to back in seat, my knees pushed seat in front of me. Not on person seemed to watch entertainment, because of the program you have to sign up for. Seems like basic tv or so could be free, even if there is charge for movies."

Pros: "Food was good. Attendants were helpful and courteous . Airline was on time."
Cons: "boarding was pretty chaotic. Check in was difficult getting seat assignments. Could not do it on line."

Pros: "However the connecting time for MUC to HEL was bit more."

Pros: "Smooth and quick ride."
Cons: "There was a metal rod situation under the seat in front of me, which meant my bag wouldnt even fit, not to mention my legs. Also, I am not the biggest fan of flying and I started feeling sick at the end of the flight - kept it to myself but asked the flight attendant if I could have 2 sparkling waters and an orange juice (just to have it in front of me when I need it and not to bother anyone). I received what I asked for with an eye-roll and a shocked face. Just be nice - that's all."

Pros: "i am glad that i got there safely and ahead of time"
Cons: "it was NOT a lufthansa flight, which is what i was expecting and wanted. it was a united flight . i wanted to fly lufthansa because it is a higher quality experience than united, but for some reason after i bought the ticket i learned that united was operating the flight for lufthansa"

Pros: "The crew was very pleasant and several announcements made the flight easy"
Cons: "We were late !"

Pros: "Good selection of tv shows and movies. Comfortable seats. Pleasant service."
Cons: "The food was awful - basically inedible. I fly quite a bit, different airlines, and this was the worst I've ever seen/tasted."

Pros: "Service and meals were excellent and well organized."
Cons: "I booked the flight with Lufthansa and thought I was flying with them. When I first went to terminal C at Newark with my paperwork United told me I had to go to terminal B. I went to ' B ' and Lufthansa told me to go back to Terminal C , that I was flying on a United flight. So I went back and the United people helped me. It all worked out well but was initially confusing."

Cons: "The crew seemed not to Americans, funny is that I'm not even one just speak English well, rude!"

Pros: "The overall performance of the pilot and crew members hospitality."
Cons: "No dislikes"

Pros: "Flight crew was terrific. Very courteous and helpful."
Cons: "The movies were mediocre and system was not easy to use."

Pros: "Fast flight"
Cons: "Problems with movies and system. Terrible food."

Pros: "Terrific food in economy and comfortable seat"

Pros: "The direct connection to Milan The extreme fast flight with jet stream That the luggage arrived as well"

Pros: "Crew was nice on plane and they were trying to keep us filled with food and water."
Cons: "Horrible desk staff! Why would any airline refuse to allow a customer with kids on the plane a little sooner to allow for more time with organizing ourselves and kids. It's already intimidating to fly let alone internationally and for them to make us wait until our boarding time is inconsiderate. Plus united air had the absolute smallest and uncomfortable. I could not move and let along our poor toddler was cramped up. Our newborn was ok but it's like a 2 seat turned into 3 seats! Horrie."

Pros: "Free inflight movies thats about it.."
Cons: "Everything: the seats were highly uncomfortable, the stewardessses in the back were unfriendly and not accomadating. Any extra you requested seemed to be a bother! Again the seating was cramped and terrible. We booked with Luthansa yet ot was a united plane what a dissapointment!! One of the worse flights ever. Food was mediocer at best!"

Pros: "The food and the movies."
Cons: "Our initial flight was delayed by 2 hours and some, we lost the connecting flight from Munich to Cluj-Napoca, had to stay in the Munich airport for 12h, being very tired, hungry, having a terrible flu and fever, extremely pissed off, your personnel who did not tell us there was a relaxing area or that we were supposed to get food vouchers. The plane should've been checked and ready on time,and certainly not after some passengers boarded it. The new plane they switched it with was not properly cleaned, plus we had no earphones. One of the flight attendants was constantly passive-aggressive. I did not appreciate that at all. The tickets issued at Newark had no gate assigned for our connecting flight and with the delay and everything, more time was wasted with finding that. The boy who rebooked us for the next flight did not assist with anything, did not tell us about vouchers. after finding out about that, I was disappointed for receiving 12€ for 12h=one sandwich and one 0.5lt of mineral water. Seriously? It was not my fault that this happened. I expected better from Lufthansa."

Pros: "On time and clean"
Cons: "Small amount leg room"

Pros: "Crew and pilots were amazing. Very comfortable flight."
Cons: "Cabin was a little to warm."

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: "Horribly uncomfortable in coach. Leather seats not foot. Clothe would’ve been better. They’d keep you from sliding."

Pros: "Crew was very nice and helpful. I loved the complimentary Icelandic water"

Cons: "I had to pay for my check in bag extra, which was not clear in the booking process. Very misleading!"

Pros: "Great seat back screen entertainment options."
Cons: "I like that they keep costs down by not including extras like in flight alcohol and food."

Pros: "Was ok. Got us there but everything is a la carte"
Cons: "Was ok. Newark is awful."

Cons: "Seats both support and recline"

Cons: "Economy seats are uncomfortable"

Pros: "Iceairline has been delayed from Newark , can’t catch the connection flight from Reykjavik to Frankfurt at same day , ponsdond to next day flight ."

Pros: "Very cheap flight"
Cons: "No in-flight food, just water. Plane was very small. I’m almost 7 ft tall and asked if I could swap for an exit row, no dice. So I felt like a human-accordion between two rows of seat for the entire flight. I got what I paid for. Cheap airfare= discomfort."

Pros: "The flight was nice."
Cons: "I didn't like the check in personal.The one older woman was very rude & I don't think I will be flying with you again."

Pros: "I liked that it was non-stop. The crew was nice. They gave out a bottle of Icelandic water and pillow and blanket."
Cons: "Too crowded. Not enough explanation about the plane and different comfort levels of the different seat levels. I might have paid for upgraded seat if I had understood what the conditions would be. Also there was no explanation as to whether there would be food served or not."

Pros: "Water bottle"
Cons: "Delay that made me miss my connecting flight, which was then rescheduled a full 24 hours later. This is cutting into my vacation and the time to see my family."

Pros: "I liked the movie options."
Cons: "I don’t understand how you can be on a flight for 5 hrs and all they give you is water!!!! The seats were beyond painful and the space was so cramped. There was no sleeping on this red eye. Plane noise was extremely loud and we were not by the wing. Our flight was delayed and they didn’t say a thing until it was past the time to board!!! Really?!? No apologies for it either. This is the worst flight I have ever been on. Dread getting in this flight to go home."

Pros: "It was vegetarian. Very tasty, although the lentils were a little dry."
Cons: "The salad had a bit of grit in it! I think it was probably the lettuce that wasn’t thoroughly washed. Otherwise fine."

Cons: "The pilots was great, but the baggage was partially lost and we had to wait an hour while they found the rest and loaded it. For that hour, the airport positioned another jet with its engines firing into our air intake, so we spent the whole time coughing in fuel fumes. The crew had forgotten to put blankets out for about 1/3 of the plane on the overnight flight and didn't have enough to go around when the mistake was pointed out to them. Also, the check-in kiosks and web check-in were both faulty, so the desk assistants were overworked. Overall, the service was well intentioned, but inept. Not worth the cheaper ticket price."

Pros: "The free onboard entertainment was a welcome surpsise"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "The airline was late and every passenger missed their connecting flights. I had to wait another day and now that flight is delayed"

Pros: "The flight crew was kind."
Cons: "Good evening, I’m not sure under which category our complaints should fall on your website so I will include them here. To summarize our complaint, we booked our tickets on Icelandair through Kayak (and Webjet) and upon arriving at the check-in counter on December 2, we were informed that the baggage fee for our flight would be $95 each! Understandably, we were shocked and very displeased. Nowhere in our confirmation emails or flight details was there anything about having to pay such a high rate for our luggage. The first employee we spoke to said that your airline has recently started charging such fees to compete with WOW Air and as I said to him, I would like to point out again that this is the very reason why I never choose to fly with WOW Air: they clearly state that there is a high baggage fee from the beginning of the registration process and I know of too many other airlines who don’t have such inflated fees. This ticketing agent and the manager said that the level of our ticket (apparently called Economy Light) indicated that we would be charged this baggage rate. It is now my understanding that on the Icelandair’s website, these levels are described but no such options were listed or explained on the Kayak website or any of our confirmation materials/emails. It is the responsibility of your site to post these important details in a conspicuous place so that travelers can make informed decisions. We could’ve flown with Air Portugal for a mere $50 more and saved not only over $200 each but also the inconvenience and frustration. Upon the check-in manager’s suggestion, I looked up our flight by the booking reservation number (LCWNEG) and again, the only “flight type” shown was called Economy, nothing more. The same is true for when we checked in online and reserved our seats - there was never an indication of the fees that were awaiting us. All this to say, we were incredibly upset to be surprised with an additional cost of $200/person (round trip ticket) but then, to add insult to injury, not only did we nearly miss our flight due to the length of time spent at the check-in desk, once we got on the plane and we realized we would not be served anything other than water or soda - since all food/meals must also be paid for in most Economy levels. This was our first experience with your airline/website and I highly doubt we will ever choose you in the future. I know now for a fact that other passengers who have booked through 3rd party sites have found themselves in similar bad situations. If you choose to work with airlines and offer lower rates, it is only honest and fair to make your policies clearly known to your potential customers. We felt mislead and deceived as these rates seemed hidden until it as too late. I eagerly await your response and look forward to hearing what steps will be taken to rectify the problem and make amends for this unacceptable situation. Sincerely, Mandi Vermilyea and Judith Arp"

Cons: "Flight from Newark was delayed an hour. Was assured in Newark would make connection. Arriving in Reykjavik all go through customs. We missed flight.

Pros: "Had a good experience with Icelandair. Price was great and that made it worth bringing my own food. Staff was nice."

Pros: "crew was pleasant"
Cons: "lack of free snacks other than soda"

Pros: "Organized boarding from rear first Customer service"
Cons: "Seats uncomfortable"

Cons: "Why do you charge for food?? Even on an international flight??"

Pros: "Both flights on icelandair excluded basic things that are usually standard on other airlines I've flown with: for instance there were no free headphones or snacks or food at all, only things available for purchase. I did not have a good flight experience."
Cons: "The trans-Atlantic flight did not include any food, not even a tiny bag of pretzels"

Pros: "It was on time and the ticket agents were very helpful."
Cons: "The seats are extremely uncomfortable and the entertainment options were limited. The sound wasn't working for my headphones so it was a long, quiet, butt-numbing trip."

Pros: "Seats"
Cons: "USB port inop. Audio in movie mode was lousy, video screen was cloudy and poor def. Food not good."

Pros: "Was on a plane for 5 hours with no meal or snack All other airlines I have on offer at least one if not more'"

Pros: "Crew"
Cons: "No free snacks or food"

Cons: "Aisle seat foot area was less than 1/2 the size of the middle seat."

Pros: "Service was attentive. Flight went very smoothly. I was glad the plane was not packed. He extra empty seats made it more comfortable."

Pros: "Check in and boarding went okay"
Cons: "Constant delays. All planes were boarded at least 30-45 minutes later than expected and the late boarding delay on one of the flights caused the plane to miss a flight window and the entire plane had to sit on the tarmac for almost 3 hours. This extra time on the tarmac caused me to miss my connecting flight and I had to sit at the airport for over 8 hours waiting for the next available flight. Also, no complimentary food was given on a flight that long."

Pros: "Boarding was smooth"
Cons: "We could not confirm seats online before flight, and had difficulties with unhelpful staff checking in at Newark. She was able to get us seats together (2 couples), but ignored our request not to be in an exit row. Seat would not recline."

Pros: "Staff very friendly, easy flight."
Cons: "Found the food to be confusing. Wasn't sure what was included in my ticket, so I didn't get anything but water."

Cons: "Seats are very small and no head phones provided. Telephone assistance was excellent and courteous staff at both airports."
