Pros: "Always helpful cabin staff and very efficient"
Cons: "Cery old aircraft ecenomy cramped (usually fly premium but it was an emergency )"
Pros: "Crew are always top notch, free drinks are readily available and entertainment system is great."
Cons: "The food portions and quality have definitely declined over the years sadly, as carriers cut costs no doubt."
Pros: "Great crew, good in-flight movies. Good food."
Cons: "Wifi connectivity was poor for most of the flight. Plane was very hot it was difficult to sleep."
Pros: "Crew was great !!!"
Cons: "Seating in upper class is uncomfortable and bedding is not fresh."
Pros: "The crew looked after us well"
Cons: "It was all good"
Pros: "Nice crew"
Cons: "Comfort. Seats were very uncomfortable with absolutely NO leg room. I fly a lot and this was one of the WORST leg room experiences I had."
Pros: "Everything was easy"
Cons: "Business class seats are snug for big people compared to other airlines"
Pros: "Loads of leg room compared with other flights (I'm 6' and my knees are usually embedded in the seat in front, but not this time!"
Cons: "USB socket on the entertainment on both flight out and return was broken."
Pros: "Business class on the 737 is somewhat basic compared to Virgin Australia's A330, but you still get the same great service, and the food is terrific."
Pros: "Comfortable seat. Great crew!"
Pros: "The crew where awesome and catered to every need and requirement."
Cons: "need to have a slightly deeper seat pitch in premium economy to allow people out without having to wake each other up. Especially on night flights."
Pros: "The crew was outstanding and the good choices were excellent"
Cons: "The flight was late( not their fault) and there were several technical difficulties with the A/C and entertainment system"
Pros: "The crew were very attentive, they tried hard to help me with comfort, drinks etc. I didnt have food as it was so good in the Virgin Clubhouse!"
Cons: "The bed! When you flip it flat its rock hard, and the matress they provide is useless! Need foam matress to really make it more comfotable. If the seat reclined another few inches i wouldnt bother flipping it."
Pros: "Crew were wonderful when I was nauseous from turbulence"
Cons: "at last minute itinerary was changed.. instead of routing through Brisbane, was now routed through Sydney. Flight from Sydney to LAX was delayed by 4 hours, then missed flight LAX to LAS... overall long delayed arrival. Checked the route through Brisbane, and those flights we're all there, departed and landed all on-time... so wondering what the reason was for the change of the itinerary without a cause (no cancel or delayed flights through Brisbane)"
Cons: "My bag was damaged in transit"
Cons: "Bad entertainment system"
Pros: "The ground staff was on top of it and the boarding process was smooth, but the cabin crew was brilliant. I’ve never had such pleasant service on a western airline. Well done. Entertainment system is top-notch, and the food was acceptable."
Cons: "The booking process and paying for luggage is disappointing. Plus, I paid a $90 upgrade and just moved up two rows in the same section. Sneaky."
Pros: "The food was okay"
Cons: "The gate was Jane without announcement"
Cons: "Incredibly uncomfortable, not enough minimum space to fit my knees behind seat in front when front passenger reclined. 6 hours is too long to have a metal rod sticking straight into your knee caps. Shoulders were squished between other passengers and had to sit twisted the whole way and Im not a large person, but am 6ft. Cabin crew impolite and unhelpful. Food was awful and made my friend sick."
Pros: "Flight was close to being on time. I was able to get a lot of sleep on the flight."
Pros: "Nothing. The whole experience was horrible."
Cons: "I didn't make it to Siem Reap because the first leg of the trip from IAD to London was cancelled by Virgin Atlantic after it was fully boarded. The excuse was that a flight attendant had food poisoning and was unable to fly and so the entire flight was cancelled. The Virgin team seemed unconcerned and showed NO sense of urgency to try and get people rebooked. Their solution was to rebook everyone on an evening flight the next day. If a passenger was only going to London, that was probably fine. But for people with connecting flights -- or like me with multiple connecting flights -- that wasn't acceptable."
Pros: "Crew was very solicitous...food was quite good.."
Cons: "Baggage was very slow in arriving. ..45-60 minutes"
Pros: "Plane was about 30% full so plenty of room to stretch out. Friendly crew."
Cons: "Flight left 50 minutes late because they'd lost the paperwork and had to get new copies.... not very professional! I can understand a delay due to weather or technical issues but losing paperwork shouldn't happen. The food portion was very small for an international flight."
Pros: "Free everything...food, wine, spirits, movies, etc. Nice crew!"
Cons: "Seats a little hard, main dinner dish was a little odd but okay."
Pros: "simple easy boarding. Jumbo 747 is always a nice experience."
Pros: "The flight was on time."
Cons: "The floor at our feet had been spilled on during a previous flight and not cleaned. Bag was lost and not returned for 5 days. Crew during flight was flippant and disinterested in service...unless you were Economy+."
Pros: "Getting to Barbados from Manchester airport is convenient"
Cons: "The light weight on a long haul flight do not work anything over four hours you need some form of comfortability and virgin got it wrong with the seats .. yes I know the industry is all about making and saving money but you also need to Remember that most of this flight you will be sat down for"
Cons: "Seat cushion r not soft comfortable enough. R hard. Hard My butt"
Pros: "Plenty of snacks and great service, with comfy seats"
Cons: "My luggage did not make it to destination :("
Pros: "Nothing because I was given a middle seat"
Cons: "6'4 and I get a middle seat.."
Pros: "There are lots of relatively new movies to choose from."
Cons: "The complimentary headset breaks easily. Tray table was broken and they can't fix it. Very small bathrooms, knees almost touch the door when sitting down. Food selection for dinner ran out quickly, resulting in only 2 choices and one is hot spicy, so basically only one choice. All beverages are given out in small cups, even water is given out in small cups increments (finish in one gulp), they don't even give out small bottles of water. No complimentary packet (eye shades, socks etc.) , not even a barf bag for collecting trash."
Pros: "On time, everything normal."
Cons: "Seat space so small that my knees were up against the next seat, even without it tilting back."
Pros: "Still a more pleasant experience than BA but others have overtaken. Crew make a difference though."
Cons: "Limo service wasn't great in China - asked for address of hotel - a major international chain and confusion on booking details"
Pros: "Smiling and helpful staff Great FREE food and drinks good movies Free goodie bag of travel goods, blanket, pillow etc Free candy for landing descent"
Cons: "Leg room is a little tight"
Cons: "Customer service was horrible - they were so rude on the plane Food was done by the time it was our turn I got food poising off of the breakfast horrible"
Pros: "The space you have with your legs is sufficient and the chairs are very comfortable. The food was really nice. I enjoyed the trip, although it was a long one."
Pros: "All the meals and movies included"
Pros: "Getting off the stinky airplane...peeyoo!"
Cons: "The three hour delay in departure."
Pros: "Service, food, etched all fine"
Cons: "Fees to assign seats in advance are very high. Sat on the Tarmac a while before takeoff and after landing."
Pros: "Entertainment was okay, flight crew was nice"
Cons: "After checking in my wife and I were in separate seats. I was then unable to change my seat after check in. After calling the helpline I was informed that it is impossible to change the seat after checking in until I am at the airport. No other airline has such an obscure, in efficient rule. Virgin takes pride in being a step above their competition - I didn't see it. I have flown international on Delta, American Airlines, British Airlines, United, and others and any difference in the experience was negligible."
Pros: "Very friendly and helpful staff! Food was very good too."
Cons: "More leg room always desirable"
Pros: "The comfort of the flight and entertainment."
Cons: "My bag was not put on the correct flight so I had no bag for 3 days, they were slow in getting my bag to Bali from Sydney. It was really unacceptable. I talked to 5 different people to make sure my bag was put on the correct plane, even asked before boarding if it was on and they said yes.The food was horrible, I only ate it because I was starving. Flight was delayed from Sydney to Bali, which caused me to miss my pick up. Not sure if I'll fly with them again."
Pros: "The in flight entertainment was above average and the seats were decent"
Cons: "The attitude of the cabin crew was generally poor; at one point when I returned the post meal rubbish one member of crew commented to another on the lack of wrappers in my rubbish the other crew member replied "maybe he ate it" as this conversation took place directly behind me I assume they thought my headphones were plugged in."
Cons: "Cold draft at all times."
Pros: "There were lots of choices of movies. The flight was only half full, so I got two seats together to stretch out."
Cons: "The cups for water and juice were very small."
Cons: "I found the seats on this Virgin Atlantic A340 flight from LHR (London Heathrow) to LAX (Los Angeles), an eleven hour flight, to be unacceptable. The seats were very crowded. I am six feet tall, and was very uncomfortable all during the flight. I could not sit with my knees together. I had to spread my knees to sit comfortably. Holding that position for eleven hours was very uncomfortable. Anyone taller than me would have even more trouble. Also, every seat has a very large box underneath, I presume for the audio/video system. This is a terrible location. There is very little room to stow anything. But much worse, I couldn't straighten my right leg. All-in-all, I found the seat situation totally unacceptable. I will likely never fly Virgin Atlantic again because of this."
Cons: "My ticket was cancelled at the time I was standing in front of the airline counter to check my bag. I was so furious. The airline did not help me at ALL. In fact, they offer me to buy a brand new ticket at a new price!!!!!! I ended up re-bought the ticket from United airline as my husband has United card (chase) and we ended up paying over 1900 for the ticket that should have been about $911. The priceline number is not helping. I have trip insurance but no. nothing worked. I will never fly Virgin Atlantic again."
Pros: "Crew is excellent, polite and personal!"
Cons: "Plane is super old and outdated. Comfort seat is not, comfortable, very tight. TV screen is not good quality, with the old controls on a handset. No touch, no 1/8 inch audio jack (it has the old 3 holes one). Wifi for streaming freezes every other second. Just make a face lift to the plane, everything else is good."
Pros: "The crew was very kind"
Pros: "The crew was professional & friendly"
Cons: "Food was terrible honestly, entertainment system didn't work on 1st flight."
Pros: "Crew were excellent"
Cons: "Old aircraft. Uncomfortable seats in economy. Entertainment screens old and almost impossible to watch - watched my iPhone! No mobile phone charger."
Pros: "Crew was great and helpful despite oversight in my special meal."
Cons: "Special meal request was overlook. I did not mind so much as eating less does some good! It is human to err!"
Cons: "The flight was a bit delayed, but the airline handled it incredibly well. I was put up in a great hotel with good free food and caught another flight the next morning."
Pros: "The bed was comfortable. Entertainment selection and large TV screen was good. The KLM crew is amazing, as usual."
Cons: "Food quality was not so good."
Cons: "Head support for 6 feet plus people on seats would be good"
Pros: "Seat was uncomfortable. There was nothing to like. In past I have traveled by KLM but this time it was worst."
Cons: "No proper food service. Even to the passenger of Amsterdam no dinner was served. No inflight service. It looks like domestic flight. I will think twice to travel by KLM. The check-in staff at counter was absolutely arrogant. Staff ar boarding gate was nice."
Pros: "The seat was a little uncomfortable but the crew were amazing."
Pros: "Crew was fantastic, seats and entertainment was great. Very good food choices."
Cons: "Everything was very good."
Cons: "Delays, took my hand luggage into the hold,"
Cons: "This return flight was much better than the flight going to Amsterdam. I believe the biggest factor was the type of aircraft. The old 747 just didn't meet expectations. The newer 777 on the way back was much more comfortable, with better amenities."
Cons: "not really"
Pros: "Lovely crew, very helpful"
Pros: "Good food, friendly service"
Cons: "More trash pickup; only one round of beverage service"
Pros: "Crew was in a festive mood, the meal was unexpectedly delicious"
Cons: "Seats ok, but could be more comfy"
Pros: "Gaps between seats are very narrow."
Cons: "when serving drinks, cabin crew limited to serve liquor only once and it was poor service."
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: "Very attentive crew. Attended to needs immediately. Took a lot of time with each person when someone had something to say."
Cons: "The seat I had with no seats in front of me was very small. Much smaller than the other economy seats because the tray table and video screen were in the armrests. Paid extra for the legroom by ended up losing it side to side. Really had to squeeze into the seat."
Pros: "Was happy to pay extra 45.5 pounds for laugages which was hidden"
Cons: "Not happy to pay extra money for my case"
Pros: "The staff tried to help me when it was evident we would not arrive on time"
Cons: "The connecting flight is too short of a time. We were late out of LAX and I missed my connection and had to sit in airport for 5 hours. Missed my grandson’s third birthday party. Just made me sad as Travelled from far to try to make it."
Pros: "The food rocks! I know that I will always be eating well with KLM. The staff is always so nice, professional and cordial...I always know I'll be in good hands with the flight."
Pros: "Friendly crew."
Cons: "So many people on a 747!!"
Pros: "I am so grateful to have been provided delicious and filling vegan meals on this long flight. Thank you for offering a dietary option that is compassionate toward animals and contributes less to climate change! Now if only the planes were powered by clean, renewable energy... Hopefully that will become a reality someday very soon! Oh, and also the crew on this flight was exceptionally kind and helpful. Thank you so much!"
Cons: "I did not enjoy the turbulence, which I suppose is unavoidable. More importantly, I felt quite guilty about the greenhouse gas emissions of my flight. I have decided to cut down on my air travel as much as possible as a way of reducing my carbon footprint."
Cons: "You are almost always late!"
Pros: "The cabin crew was so kind, efficient, and attentive. All meals and snacks were delicious."
Cons: "The movie selection did not seem extremely varied."
Pros: "Sound was broken on my TV set!"
Cons: "Called stewardess twice to assist. No response!"
Cons: "infotainment was down. Lost my luggage the flight was delayed"
Pros: "Decent meal (warm Pasta all'arrabbiata), nice little muffin for dessert and standard drinks (coffee & tea were a bonus, as they didn't serve any on a similar flight, from Barcelona to Amsterdam), friendly cabin crew."
Cons: "Poor timing - no reason for a 40 minute delay at take off (plane was fully boarded in time) Old aircraft, shabby, dirty and cramped seats. Coming from my connecting flight from Barcelona, I could clearly tell the different in the quality (and cleanliness) of the aircrafts."
Pros: "Overall everything was ok."
Cons: "Not that I cared at the time but having been asked for a rating on “entertainment” - there was none. Cheap and cheerful really. No extras over the likes of RyanAir."
Pros: "Excellent very good"
Cons: "Everting so good ex"
Pros: "Premium economy service was good."
Cons: "Inexplicably, our preassigned seats were changed at checkin and we were put in bulkhead. This particular Boeing aircraft is pretty poorly designed. Especially the bulkhead in premium economy."
Cons: "After more than two hours of delay... Initially the flight takes off was at 8:35... Then 21:20... Then 21:50... Then 22:10. Finally we took off at 22:40... Refund our money klm..."
Pros: "Due to lightening bolt strike our pre-Y2K era plane got switched out with a newer plane with modern media delivery at the seats."
Cons: "This caused a two hour delay in boarding and another 30 minutes on the JFK T4 tarmac. Same crappy headphones so it wasn’t the"
Pros: "Very friendly and helpful personnel."
Pros: "Crew good flight was fine apart from delay due to fog in Amsterdam but kept informed"
Cons: "Flight was delayed due to weather in Amsterdam area"
Cons: "Old airplane with not really comfy seats. No outlets for charging devices. Very old entertainment screen."
Cons: "Flight from Amsterdam was 2 hours late. Caused me to miss connection on train from London to Leeds which then cost me 124 pounds to rebook. No information was forthcoming at all at the airport and there were 3 different departure times given. Absolute chaos. The airline is a joke"
Pros: "Short layover connecting from US flight and luggage transferred ok to destination. Food option not great but at least they didn't charge for it unlike some other airlines. No entertainment but to be expected on such a short flight."
Pros: "Was able to check in online, very convenient and easy to access site."
Cons: "I didn't go on this flight, unable to leave Seoul (to Beijing) with China Southern."
Cons: "With skyteam elite status cannot select free upgrade from economy to premium economy unless it is 30hrs before boarding for this code share which is actually a KLM flight"
Pros: "Plane service"
Cons: "1h30min delay at airport"
Cons: "Because of slow boarding process flight was delayed by 15 minutes. I had short connection in Amsterdam."
Pros: "Quick and efficient flight. Crew very organized. Great language skills"
Very bad turbulence for half of the flight,only 75% of the passengers were served a meal as the turbulence was so bad,crew did a great job.
Bad boarding experience with stroller, but staff was great
Lufthansa no longer flies local hop flights within Germany, forcing flyers who land in Frankfurt/Munich/Berlin, to take trains to their final destinations within Germany. What used to be a 40 minute flight from Frankfurt to Nuremberg is now a 3 hour train ride. If you want to fly direct to your destination city within Germany, then fly another airline from outside the country. Those flights are allowed to local airports.
Boarded process could have been better. Overall excellent flight.
We had something like 4 or 5 gate changes, plus a 30 minute delay. The cabin crew as somewhat more brusque than usual. Basically no food on the plane, but that's OK for a flight of this duration.
Pros: "Easy boarding process"
Cons: "Crew climbed over my seat multiple times in order to get their stuff from the overhead bins. Also loud when people were trying to sleep"
Pros: "Crew excellent"
Cons: "Need to invent seat u can lay flat in"
Pros: "The airline and the flight were pretty good"
Cons: "DONT SHOW BAGAGE INCLUDED ON A BOOKING WHEN ITS ONLY INCLUDED FOR 1 WAY! I HAD TO SHELL OUT 40 EURO TO CHECK MY BAG BECAUSE OF THIS!"
Pros: "Good food and crew"
Cons: "Free WiFi"
Pros: "Seat is small"
Cons: "On time boarding"
Pros: "Comfort and space"
Pros: "on time."
Pros: "Smooth flight. Friendly staff"
Cons: "Didn't like the fruit dish or the liverwurst type meat."
Cons: "I was put on stand by because the flight was overbooked even though my reservations were confirmed by you, why?"
Pros: "We upgraded to economy premium which was fantastic. With the exception of seats that lie down all the way, you feel like you are in business class."
Cons: "Seats are small and cramped. Food was tasteless. Entertainment equipment did not work well, slow and kept locking up."
Cons: "There was no entertainment in the flight , which was totallyfine for me as it was a short flight; I downloaded one magazine prior to my initial flight in SFO but was unable to access it."
Cons: "It made us miss our fly due to Lufthansa use stroller stairs for passengers to get off the airplane instead as I had my 89 years old mother who needed wheel chair assistance which did not have during that time. And, with my heavy carry on luggage, plus my under seat luggage that I had to hold my old mother that I had to walk to the bus With pretty good distance that took us to another 10 minutes terminal drive. By the time we got to the connection gate to Berlin, the plane already rolled out to the runway. Now, they have to send us to the next fly, which was at another different gate. Overall, this trip made me very disappointed and horrible."
Pros: "Gentle crew"
Cons: "1,5 hours delay again"
Pros: "The seats are comfortable and the plane was clean and well-presented."
Cons: "The flight left with a slight delay. As I boarded, I was issued a new seat in the middle, as opposed to the window seat I had selected. There was zero explanation for this change. When I approached the flight attendants about it, with a smile on my end, I was offered the equivalent of a shrug. As I gave up, I was also informed there was no more room in the overhead bins, so not only did I end up sitting in the middle (which I loathe), but also with my carry-on under my feet. I’ve always been a fan of Lufthansa, but I’m a little disappointed this time around."
Cons: "Seat in front was broken (did not hold in place reclining) and my seat was broken too. I was able to change seat but 2 seats broken in consecutive rows is not good as it makes you think what else may be broken and what kind of accidents could occur if seats are not even checked by crew."
Cons: "Was delayed which caused us to miss our connecting flight"
Pros: "Left on time, arrived on time. Efficient service."
Cons: "None. The seats on this Airbus 320 were more comfortable on this leg than on the transatlantic leg of the journey."
Pros: "Food is provided"
Cons: "Delayed 6 hours on the plane"
Cons: "Missed transfer, despite assurance before takeoff."
Cons: "Again miserable muslim meal with only vegetables! Not enough room in the cabin for the personal bags that I had to put it under my feet for the whole trip ( +10 hrs ) having my legs stuck between the seat and the bags ."
Cons: "More variety in entertainment would be good;"
Pros: "Friendly crew, smooth flight, always offering water."
Cons: "I was hungry in this flight. I felt the choice of food was small and have never been on a 10 hr+ flight and felt hungry. I'm glad I brought my own snacks with me."
Pros: "Excellent crew and service on board."
Cons: "Airport boarding staff have room to improve in customer care."
Pros: "Very professional crew !!"
Cons: "Nothing to write ."
Pros: "The food was pretty good. Normally I can't eat airplane food but it was actually good."
Cons: "The seat didn't go back at all"
Pros: "Flight was uneventful, which is what you want!"
Pros: "Movie selection, wine and food"
Cons: "Crying babies - outside of the crew control"
Pros: "Only complaint is that those video monitors have a slow touchscreen response. Other a terrific flight."
Pros: "Left on time"
Cons: "Full plane"
Pros: "Crew was very nice - liked flight tracker - personal tv's - food was good. Boarding was good -"
Cons: "Seat in economy are just to small - need to be able to recline a bit more for a 9 to 10+ hour flight. So close together it was hard to eat being in the middle seat. Movies and music need to be updated -"
Cons: "The airplane was extremely cold and the flight staff was rude"
Pros: "I liked the food and entertainment"
Pros: "Crew inside the plane was lovely."
Cons: "The crew woman that assist us in Barcelona Airport counters for the check-in was really rude asking very personal question that I still don't understand why and questioning our passports without any reason. My partner and I felt very uncomfortable and that was a totally unnecessary situation. After that everything was totally great during the flight."
Pros: "Every thing"
Pros: "The plane was clean. Some of the attendants were very kind and helpful about our situation (the plane left 35 minutes late from Athens and we were in danger of missing our next flight to the US). Food was pretty good. Small portions as usual."
Cons: "Pretty big delay before departure, ended up in very stressful conditions for the rest of the trip. It became pretty obvious that we were cutting very close to the boarding time for our next flight (arrival scheduled for 4:05 pm and our flight to Chicago barding on 4:20 pm). One of the flight attendants kindly offered us to move up to the front seats of the plane on the last 15 minutes of the flight (with our luggage) so that we can exit as soon as possible. We moved (per his suggestions) and we were treated rudely by the young lady attendant of the Business Class. We explained that we moved after the suggestion of their other flying attendant. She called her supervisor on us, who in return, rudely, arrogantly and loudly started to berate us on how we "dared" to move ourselves to the Business class. After explaining the whole story again and showing her the tickets, she allowed us to stay to those seats for the last 10 minutes of the flight. We asked if an airport cart could be called to transfer us to the next gate, and they said no. We asked for information on the gate for Chicago and they did not provide one. Unfortunately, the plane landed very far from the gates. We had to enter the airport bus, which traveled for about 15 minutes before we got on a gate. There, we faced about 35 minutes of passport procedures and waiting lines. At that point, 5 minutes before our plane for Chicago was supposed to take off, we asked the passport pre-check officer what we should do (we assumed we would be missing the plane at that point) and he told us very rudely "When you REALLY miss your plane, then come back and ask me"!!!!!!!!! Then we passed through passport check and we were told to run to our gate (which by that time was no longer showing on the computer screen, and we knew about the changed number, ONLY because KAYAK sent the update to us-THANK YOU!!!). We ran for about 12 minutes. We arrived at our gate late by about 25 minutes after our flight was supposed to leave. There we were asked why we were running and when we told the guy who screened our boarding passes he responded "Well, running is good for your health..."!!!!! At that point I would have liked to give him a piece of my mind...We were told by the same guy that due to airport security issues, Frankfurt airport had so many delays in the last couple of weeks that planes know to wait for the late passengers. Couldn't someone have told us that before? We have NEVER been treated so poorly by an airline and we will NOT fly with them again. The LUFTHANSA customer service was terrible. We have not encountered such arrogance and lack of information for many years...Shame on them! AND we were not the only Americans running. There were families with little children and older people, etc etc, just because the Lufthansa attendants and ground crew did not feel like giving us the information we needed!!!"
Pros: "טייס מקצועי קדם טיסה נח ומסודר כולל אפליקציה לבורדינג"
Cons: "האוכל לא מציאה"
Pros: "Crew took care of business. Kept all the passengers in good comfort."
Cons: "Unfortunate delay. Never seen flight left this delay. But they make up the delay."
Pros: "I liked food, entertainment on board, atmosphere, professional crew, arrival on time"
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: "courteous crew, clean equipment, right temp"
Pros: "Got to sit in the top deck of the A380; Luftansa sets aside a small portion of the top deck for economy passengers. Flight was much quieter for economy passengers than on any other plane I've ever flown because the top deck is further from the engines. It was an extraordinary flight."
Cons: "Food was OK, but nothing special."
Cons: "My connecting flight to Rome wasn't listed on any monitors, and four people couldn't find Terminal A on the map. Fortunately I found some fellow Americans who also couldn't find Terminal A , lower numbered gates, from our current Z gate. We went to the right, following most disembarked passengers and signs for some A gates....a mess! In the end, we had to go all the way back, past our original gate to a Customs area where they just stamped our passports and onward to our gates. It seemed like the signs only helped if you were going in the correct direction to begin with. Even my German friend said how bad that airport is for directions!"
Cons: "The passenger sitting next to me smelled REALLY bad. Like he hadn't washed himself in weeks. Other passengers around me got a whiff too and also reacted the same. I asked the main crew member from my aisle for a seat change but he came back 10 mins later saying there was nothing else available. Later when I was walking around to stretch my legs, I saw there were AT LEAST 10 seats open in the next cabin. Why lie? The entertainment system touch-screen was not working properly and the headphones kept falling out of my ear."
Cons: "Keep up the same spirit"
Pros: "The flight attendants were excellent; seat was about what you would expect in economy; the boarding process was extremely confusing"
Cons: "Clean up the planes better"
Pros: "Smooth flight"
Cons: "Better leg room, better food, friendlier crew. Today you only get good treatment if you pay extra for it... Something is wrong with the pay-for-good-service model most airlines follow"
Cons: "Very long delay, got bumped for a flight the next day. Horrible experience"
Pros: "I got there"
Cons: "Endless waiting and lost luggage. Excuse was unpredicted weather conditions. It was snowing in Finland so they had to clear the Ice from the planes.. Snowing in Finland? How uncommon is that during December? I actually think most of this is poor ground handling In Helsinki."
Pros: "Flight attendants are polite"
Pros: "Smooth flying"
Cons: "Choice of movies"
Pros: "Staff was very friendly, food was ok"
Cons: "Flight was delayed multiple times"
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: "Nice crew. Basic services. Early arrival."
Cons: "Late takeoff caused me to miss connecting flight from helsinki to Tallinn"
Pros: "The friendly crew, and quiet cabin"
Cons: "The food was too Finnish."
Cons: "No audio."
Pros: "Plenty of leg room, and I got an empty seat next to me! Food was served on time (an hour into the flight, and about two hours from the destination). The options were decent particularly the caserole in terms of portions. Plenty of overheard compartment space, even with a nearly full flight."
Cons: "The arm rest between seats doesn't raise to the full upright position, only one-half way. The TV needed to be reset by the purser due to it being stuck on kiddie mode. If you're a snacker, bring food."
Cons: "I could not be given the boarding pass fir the last leg of my trip"
Pros: "Great gate and in-cabin crew. LOVED this flight."
Cons: "Nothing to report"
Pros: "Check-in process very efficient. Boarding uneventful. Flight attendants are engaged and present as humans (does it have to do with being well rested?). Blueberry drink was a nice "ethnic" touch."
Cons: "Check-in counters opened only 2 hours before departure. These days most European airlines counters are open 6-24 hours in advance. Was not really an issue for this small aircraft and lines moving fast once opened."
Pros: "My flight was very pleasant and comfortable. It was one of the few times I was actually able to fall asleep on a plane. I also like that this is the first airline that served me blueberry juice which I thought was good."
Cons: "My only dislike was that we left 45 minutes late. Maybe it was not a good situation for some passengers who had to connect immediately, but I still made it in time for my connecting flight."
Pros: "I have Parkinson's disease, and my ability to walk is dependent on how long it has been since I last took carbidopa/levodopa, and how much I have exercised while standing since taking my medicine. I have difficulty walking narrow aisles, and in crowds. The staff was very understanding, and let me pre-board, ensured someone was there to help me deplane, carried my carry-on for me, and did everything possible to assist me. The crew/staff was wonderful!"
Cons: "Experience was totally let down by the airport; nothing to blame the aircraft staff though. Avoid Helsinki airport like the plague for stopovers: bad signage, woeful information how to get to the city efficiently in English. HORRIBLE experience when trying to get lost property: you got to PAY for your initial email or pay top dollar just for a stupid and aggravating phone call!!! The number of exclamation marks is not exaggerated here. You can't even ask if they even have the item in their possession. Rarely had such a bad experience at an airport, and I travel a lot for work. This alone makes me think thrice about EVER getting Finnair again. Same company that manages the airport, so I'm giving this flight a bad review."
Cons: "Btw you have cancelled my flight!!!!!!!! And sent me just an email."
Pros: "In JFK the Finnair staff helped us expedite our connection process (the flight from Helsinki was delayed and we hardly had time to make the connection)."
Cons: "The flight was delayed by almost 4 hours. It was a miracle we made our connection in JFK."
Pros: "The flight was on time, crew worked really well. The food was okey as usual on Finnair."
Pros: "Liked this flight had exit row with lots of leg room for my 6'6' husband. As we requested"
Cons: "I don't understand when a reason for flight delay is no aircraft. Wasn't it a scheduled flight? The €8 voucher is only enough to buy one glass of juice."
Pros: "IT WAS THE MOST ENJOYABLE BUSINESS CLASS FLIGHT I EVER HAD. THANKS FOR THE HOSPITALTY AND SERVICE."
Pros: "Friendly service, lots of movies, Marimekko design."
Cons: "Seats too close together front to back. If the person in front of you lies down the back of their seat is in your face."
Pros: "They waited with connection flight."
Cons: "Looks of people waiting for us. They really hated us. Luggage made it next day. No food on board."
Pros: "There was like 5 movies to choose from and 2 shows, all the movies old and my screen kept on getting stuck"
Pros: "Nice crew"
Cons: "old plane, not clean, flight delayed not airlines fault"
Pros: "Airbus 350, quiet and smooth. Wifi, booking a taxi on board and being met on arrival. Good seats in business."
Cons: "Bag collection was chaos and took too long, it's not such a busy airport"
Pros: "Flight was on time Baggage arrived on time Light breakfast was good [ I chose not to have dinner ] Slept through 95% of the red-eye flight so it was a good experience"
Cons: "Seating is cramped in economy"
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!!!"
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: "Courteous attendants on board! Food not bad!"
Cons: "Flight was delayed by more than an hour and there was on one announcement unril we boarded! It would have been nice after half an hour to get an update."
Pros: "Direct from San Diego to Heathrow."
Cons: "The seats are very small--and I am a small woman--so the flight felt cramped. The food was just ordinary airline food--little taste. Coffee served essentially black--no offer of milk or cream. Take it or leave it-- Crew helpful if you could flag someone down. Most irritating: could not check in online for some unexplained reason and required to arrive two hours early. BA does no subscribe to TSA so spent time in a line unnecessarily. AND, then the crew arrived over an hour late so the flight left at least an hour late. The crew explained that their downtown bus did not arrive and they could not arrange one. Given the close proximity to the airport, this should have been a 10 minute cab ride."
Pros: "Temperature on flight was comfortably cool. Food was delicious and flight attendants were pleasant and attentive. The flight was full but service was prompt. Very enjoyable!"
Cons: "The lighting on my screen made it difficult to see it very well...adjusting brightness was not effective. Also, the programming selection was somewhat limited and it would have been nice to start a movie when you wanted instead of waiting."
Pros: "Food ok. Service fine, grew nice."
Cons: "Last on board no cargo space..Sears are not great. Passenger behind my wife was pounding on the video games I the entertainment system the whole flight."
Cons: "It is absolutely ridiculous that they made us pay $100 each way for our ski bag/equipment. I will never fly either airline again. Horrible customer service as well. The airplane and its entertainment system is quite antiquated and needs to be updated. Horrible experience."
Pros: "The pilot was briefing us about everything There werent much passengers so we were seated in a way where we had space. Great entertainment choices Great food"
Cons: "Notting i can think of"
Pros: "Very friendly crew; easy boarding; lunch was tasty; pleasant trip overall."
Pros: "The flight crew were professional and friendly."
Cons: "the seats are too small and cramped. I am quite small and I felt cramped. I feel on long flights there should be more leg room"
Pros: "courteous and helpful crew, easy calm and efficient boarding process, with a announcer who spoke CLEARLY, slowly and loud enough to hear, more comfortable plane than the AA plane I took to get to Paris."
Cons: "In flight entertainment really inferior to other airlines, food mediocre, but adequate. But good service is paramount and your crew was good despite many challenging customers."
Pros: "Staff efficient and kind. Main meals good. Snacks/lunch not as inspired. Entertainment options were varied."
Cons: "Boarding was a bit of a free for all. Seats cramped."
Pros: "Boarding was smooth and the flight crew and attendants were friendly and helpful."
Cons: "The seats were so close that we felt like cordwood stacked vertically. There wasn't elbow roon to butter my roll without elbowing the person in the next seat. The food was boring. It was very cold, despite my dressing warmly. It was a relief to board our next flight, which was JetBlue."
Pros: "The price point."
Cons: "Service was terrible, staff was rude. For an international flight they provide you next to nothing. Only 1 meal and soda or water. They didn’t even have coffee or give napkins with the meal. The seats were smaller than usual and uncomfortable. In addition they lost our luggage."
Cons: "The information at boarding time was hard to understand, even coffee was a charge, they didn’t have our stroller at the gate when we got off then when we got to baggage claim it was still hard to find."
Pros: "The flight was on time and boarding/de-boarding was very easy. there was ample overhead storage for everyone."
Cons: "Extremely uncomfortable seats (I travel internationally multiple times a year and am used to long flights). Other international flights include beer or wine The food was mediocre at best"
Pros: "Unable to check in online. Not from phone. Not on website. Called directly and waited forever. And told must do at airport. Arrived and was told flight booked and full so bumped from the flight. Paid $2000 for a coach ticket and not able to get on either flight from Boston - so missed all meeting."
Cons: "Join TSA you amateur / cut rate airline. Fix reservation system."
Pros: "I liked the service once we left Dublin but once it was time to arrive to Leeds everything went downhill."
Cons: "Our flight did not land to Leeds but to Manchester. I thought this would not be an issue to get my connecting flight to London. As I tried to explain to the airline attendants about my connecting flight they had no idea what was going on and said it wasn't their issue I would have to go to Leeds and explain to them what was happening. I asked if there was a way we could call them and see if I could just get a flight to London from Manchester. They said no. I tried to get a number to call myself still nothing. They sent everyone from the flight onto a coach bus to Leeds. Once I arrived to Leeds, I spoke with Ben and explained my situation. He said there were no more flights to London or anywhere near there. And there wasn't any flights to Austin, TX which was my end point either. He explained there wasn't anything they could do except fly me in the morning to London. I agreed but then come to find out he had to send me back to Manchester. Now I had already had my arrangements to stay in London for the night so I did not have much money left. He said they would take care of the accommodations and the flight to London. I was VERY PATIENT. Within this he was telling me how close they were to closing. I explained I needed everything in place before they even left because I was traveling alone in an unknown country or city. He arranged a cab to take me back to Manchester and a hotel to stay in with dinner and breakfast available. I thought everything would get better but of course it didn't. Ben clearly knew I had my checked bag and carry on. When I'm about to board the flight to London they charged me 60 pounds for my CHECKED BAG. Now this was already included on flight to begin with if all of this had not happened. The attendant did not want to listen to my story and kept passing me to another attendant that said there's nothing they could do. I had to pay since I couldn't leave my belongings. Once i arrived to London. I had to get my bag and RECHECK IN MY BAG. AGAIN they tried to charge me for my checked bag. This time I had enough of your airline and explained it was all included in my flight and I went on a rant with the attendant. He just stared and printed out the ticket for my bag. Didn't look at the computer. Didn't even explain why it's all of sudden taken care of that I don't have to pay anymore. I had no patience to hear his excuse but just wanted to get back home. This has been the worst experience I have ever had with an airline. Frontier isn't even this unorganized. Shouldn't there be a process for these kind of situations already?"
Cons: "Luggage was not out in th connecting flight and there was over 2hour layover so it should not have missed the plane it has all of my clothing in it"
Pros: "very friendly staff great flight with nice tech made trip fly by"
Pros: "Hate Ryanair! Cheap fools! Air Lingus are miles better. No pun intended."
Cons: "Flight attendants rude. Often delayed"
Pros: "The efficient flight but no drinks or snacks w/o purchase"
Pros: "The crew was very pleasant. The food was actually good! The flight was exactly on time! And they didn’t loose my luggage! It was perfect"
Pros: "Flight was great! Staff was friendly and attentive, plane was on time as promised! Really a positive experience."
Pros: "On time and friendly"
Cons: "The flight was late. Crew was not helpful. Food was blah."
Cons: "You can not bring a hot drink on board,but they give you hot drinks on board it doesn't make sense.. The seats are very small on a 9 hrs flight,the arm rest should go up for some space when available..There should be at least a vegetarian option for people who don't eat meat.."
Pros: "Plane was clean."
Cons: "They seemed to be a bit stingy on the beverages - I was pretty dehydrated so asked for another can of soda or glass of still water and never received it. Crew was not particularly friendly. I had flown British Air on the way over to Europe and that crew seemed genuinely more friendly. The complimentary headphones were terrible. I almost gave up on watching a movie until I pulled out my iPhone headphones and realized that I could finally hear the dialogue over the roar of the plane."
Pros: "Short but great had a window seat so slept most of the time"
Cons: "Staff didn't engage much"
Cons: "It was fine, but once again, not able to choose or upgrade seats."
Cons: "I had a changeable ticket but could only do so a 1counter. Missed earlier flight as a result. Terrible service. At Dublin airport going out they let me change at the gate. Bot not in Heathrow."
Pros: "The seat was comfortable on the newer plane and the in flight entertainment was excellent."
Cons: "The airline features an upgrade yourself bid option that starts at a minimum bid. We went above this and got rejected, only to find there were still open seats. They tried to then upsell is at 4x the cost which makes the entire thing seem terribly dishonest. After calling customer service, they hung up on me. It’s clearly a scam to extract more pricing data from customers."
Cons: "I had to pay 3 euros for a cup of black tea? Seriously? The captain could have lowered the volume when speaking. It was too loud."
Cons: "No any entertainment"
Cons: "Their food is grotesque."
Pros: "Staff was nice."
Cons: "Food and drink service were very bad. Not enough water throughout the flight. And that is what keeps us healthy in long oversees flights. They ran out of bottled water. No decent healthy snack choices, just airline pretzels. Very sub par for an internatiinal flight!"
Pros: "Flight made great time! Boeing 757 was disappointing as it felt extremely crowded."
Cons: "Flight attendants were not very friendly or helpful (except the one in first class that help us out when needed). Never was asked for additional beverage and no extra with dinner."
Pros: "Flight was on time."
Cons: "Terminals were too far apart. Long walk to get to security. Too many repetitive checkpoints."
Pros: "Check in, boarding and flight all great"
Cons: "Crew is borderline aggressive and arrogant."
Pros: "Short flight. No extra services. Good staffnothing"
Pros: "Great crew"
Cons: "Very old aircraft. Single aisle narrrow bodied"
Pros: "Staff was first rate-very professional"
Cons: "poor selection of entertainment, selection out of date and not current movies, over-all appearance of plane was shabby"
Cons: "Bags got delayed by a day."
Pros: "Excellent overall experience on my first Aer Lingus flight. As a nervous flyer I highly recommend Aer Lingus"
Pros: "Entertainment was a good distraction. Would have been nice to have different choices in each direction. Also easy to understand announcements in the terminal as opposed to in Newark."
Cons: "Tickets were a bit pricey. The offer to upgrade was tempting but the smallest amount that could be offered was more than I was willing to pay. Your offer should say "make us an offer over $200."
Cons: "All good and drink cost extra and there was no entertainment."
Pros: "Great food."
Cons: "Limited leg room."
Pros: "On time and easy ride"
Cons: "Picking up a stroller is always a pain with Aer Lingus. When you gate check a stroller it should be returned at the gate when you deboard. Sometimes it's near the front of the gate and other times it's by oversized baggage claim which is really painful having to carry a little one through the airport. Plus, it takes a good 30-45 minutes for the stroller to appear if you're lucky. In Paris it took 70 minutes after we deboardes. Aer Lingus needs to follow other airlines by returning the stroller as you deboard."
Pros: "All crew members were friendly and courteous. The gluten free dinner was good."
Cons: "The sound on the on board entertainment system was not good at all. It was difficult to hear the dialog."
Cons: "British Airways/Aer Lingus did not allow me to go to the gate although I was at their counter early. Worst and most humiliating situation I've ever experienced"
Pros: "Serviceable flight."
Cons: "Unable to check in 24 hours before the flight."
Pros: "The pilot flew the plane safely."
Pros: "Great flight, on time"
Cons: "Ran out of entre before they got to me"
Cons: "Because I didn't make it and I want my money back"
Pros: "Seating was comfortable with a head rest. Large screens for entertainment Food was edible offer a good amount of drinks Staff was friendly"
Cons: "Luggage did not make connecting flight. Difficult process to book seats because it was not booked directly through aer lingus. No online seat booking."
Pros: "Crew was very responsive."
Cons: "Uncomfortable, miserable seats with no space"
Cons: "My checked golf bag was not at baggage claim on arrival. Not delivered for 2 days causing havoc and extra expense for my golf vacation."
Pros: "Courteous staff and flight crew"
Cons: "Entertainment choices were limited"
Pros: "Boarding from back and rear of plane made passenger loading faster. I had to purchased seats with more room to provide comfort for long flight."
Cons: "The food was only okay and I'm sure that better food could have been purchased."
Pros: "The cabin crew was very helpful. The landing beautiful."
Pros: "USB connection at each seat. multiple movies available. food service."
Cons: "need more leg room!!"
