Pros: "The crew was nice, the food was really good, the plane was clean, and they used reusable silverware and plates to avoid waste."
Cons: "Could've been on time"
Cons: "There was a half hour delay which no one could explain. Made transfer in Zurich really difficult."
Pros: "The food was the best I've had on any airline in recent times. On the first flight it was a croissant and a swiss chocolate, on the second flight it was a hot danish pastry."
Cons: "The first flight was late so I was worried I'd miss my connection (however connection was delayed too so I made it). Also, I was asked to check in my bag because "the aircraft was full" however when I got on the plane I noticed it was half-empty and there would have been ample overhead room."
Pros: "Best food I've ever had on an airline! Great flight. Not too full."
Cons: "Arm rests didn't lift all the way up on the plane."
Cons: "This flight was poorly advertised as Economy Light. I had to pay $500 in baggage fees to being one checked ski bag round trip - more than the cost of my entire fare!"
Pros: "Crew was very attentive, information from the cockpit was enough to let us know but not disruptive"
Cons: "Boarding was one long line that other passengers in the airport had to walk through. This was difficult for passengers with kids and those with needed special accommodations Ike wheelchairs, canes etc"
Pros: "Short flight, no entertainment. They still offer free snacks on short flights, a plus, but it was an almost frozen cheese sandwich. A Little bag of pretzels would be better. The crew was very friendly."
Cons: "Boarding is confusing. Bad lines, unorganized, and people pushing. They should probably come up with a better system."
Cons: "I wanted to get some work done on my flight but I couldn't even open my laptop screen more than a few inches."
Pros: "Very kind crew. Great food. Nice leg room even for economy."
Cons: "This was one of the most empty flights I’ve ever been on. With that, lots of room for carry on baggage. I fail to see why it was necessary at all. It delayed my journey when time was of the essence."
Pros: "The crew for the most part were courteous."
Cons: "1. The economy seats were extremely uncomfortable and tight, unlike other Int’l flights we have been on, ie, Virgin and British Airlines 2.Food was the worst we have ever had on an Int’l Flt. 3. Main meal selection ran out. Staff said there was nothing they could fo. 4. Our suitcase arrived really beat up. It looked like it was dragged along the tarmac. There were several large rips. To make it worse, this was the first trip we have used the suitcase."
Cons: "Too hot. Too late. Staff could have been more accommodating. Online checkin was impossible."
Pros: "There wasn't much that stood out as likable. The food was pretty good."
Cons: "The plane was too hot. I asked multiple times throughout the flight for the temperature to be reduced, and it was not. I was wearing light jeans and a short sleeve shirt, and I was sweating all flight. Each time I asked throughout the duration of the flight, I was told it take a while for the temperature to decline. It's one thing to be uncomfortably warm on a flight; it's another thing when the flight crew lies to you. Further, I was not the only one to request that the temperature be reduced. This made an 11 hour flight particularly miserable."
Pros: "Nothing about it"
Cons: "They didn't even take us!"
Pros: "The plane wasn't totally booked and very clean"
Pros: "A very friendly and attentive crew and a decent meal. Comfort is still iffy in coach but better than most American airlines. Good selection of movies to pass the time."
Cons: "Seats in coach are cramped and some have an electrical box under the seat in front of you, so there is no room for your legs or carry on bag. Bathrooms keep getting smaller to jam in more seats."
Cons: "carry-on baggage procedure not clear. deal with this issue upfront, not at end when cost is 3x more so Swiss can make more money this way."
Cons: "My special meal wasn’t available."
Cons: "French unions"
Cons: "The seats in coach plus and Bussines were terrible"
Pros: "My own seat had ample legroom, good crew."
Cons: "Faulty headphone jack and person who kneed me in the back whenever I recline my seat. 8 kilo limit on carry-on luggage."
Pros: "Flight crew were great"
Cons: "In flight entertainment was Byzantine"
Pros: "staff was very nice"
Pros: "Pretty much on time even with snow conditions!"
Cons: "Coffee was pretty much cold."
Pros: "Friendly and high quality service"
Pros: "Swiss took care of your mistake, booked on subsequent flight."
Cons: "No idea a you never actually delivered a ticket. Flight over sold, Swiss had no record of the booking. KAYAK screwed up."
Pros: "not enough room, everything hastily delivered"
Cons: "- late in arrival - 2h late in departure - lost my luggage"
Pros: "Overall good"
Cons: "Bathroom not clean"
Pros: "Plane was comfortable (for a plane) and the staff were polite and efficient. The flight made up lots of time and the in flight snacks were very welcome."
Cons: "The flight was very delayed, and the communications from Swiss was lacking. In fact their app thought the flight had taken off and landed on time?!"
Cons: "The seats in economy were unbearable for anyone of normal size, as I am. It is not possible to sit in even bare comfort in them. Obviously I'll have to find another airline or factor a size upgrade into the price"
Pros: "Crew and people were fabulous!"
Cons: "LONG lines at check in. Almost missed flight even being there 90 mins early."
Pros: "Snack offered was tasty"
Cons: "No USB charger in seat"
Pros: "There were a couple of stewardesses who were nice and helpful to the passengers. The food selection was fairly good. Drinks were available at regular intervals. Flight was comfortable except for some turbulence during landing."
Cons: "There was no pre-boarding for families with kids. They waited until the entire Business and First Class passengers boarded in Zurich before they allowed us. This was different in Mumbai where Swiss had families with kids board early. The airbus was not well maintained as fara s cleanliness was concerned. There were bathroom supplies on the toilet floor. Crumbs and food particles on the seats/crevices from the earlier flight"
Pros: "They put us in a nice hotel"
Cons: "Flight was delayed for more than 1 hour and it was overbooked. So they put us on a united flight for today. This flight is also overbooked."
Cons: "Flight from Barcelona was delayed for 2 hours, so we missed the flight from Zurich to New York."
Pros: "We were worried based on negative reviews on SWISS we had read prior to our trip, but they were WONDERFUL!! We flew coach from MIA to CRETE, two stops and 13+ hours of flying. The seats were as roomy as coach gets, but comfortable, reclining further than Delta or AA in my opinion. The food, drinks and snacks never stopped and were tasty!! Including a delicious Swiss chocolate a the end of your flight! They were so attentive! The attendants were all kind and polite. In fact, we had someone sit in front of us on our flight home who culturally didn't bath/wear deodorant and VERY malodorous and we asked the flight attendant if we could move. As soon as everyone boarded and she found two open seats for us, she moved us right before take off and we had a wonderful, great-smelling 10.5 hour flight!! LOL"
Cons: "There seems to only be 4 (plenty) bathrooms right in the center of the coach area of the plane, but with the flight attendants constantly serving drinks and food, you really had to time it so you could get to the bathrooms when they weren't in the aisles. Trust me though, this is hardly a negative and I will happily fly SWISS over and over!!!"
Pros: "I don't think I'd ever experienced such a friendly and empathetic crew."
Cons: "Security was a disaster in Amsterdam. Lines were long and they were checking everything - e.g. My bag had to be screened 2x because of my Kindle, which never happens. But the crew was Extremely accommodating and helpful."
Pros: "The flight was very good what I didnt like in that when i booked the flight it never said that my ticket wouldnt be able to add lifemiles for star alliance. That was only the reason i chose this airline. When i ask about my lifemiles the answer was that my class of ticket didnt get any lifemile. I felt cheated. You should put it somewhere visibly so the person knows before booking. If i knew it before i never chose this airline."
Pros: "I like that this plane had more leg room then other airlines."
Pros: "Easy and comfortable. Service was good and with a smile. The planes were clean and arrived on time for my connection."
Cons: "The WC was so small I could barely even stand in it."
Cons: "The food was terrible, boarding was chaotic, only ten movies to choose from."
Pros: "Ok food and ok entertainment"
Cons: "Plane was very hot and there were no air conditioner valves so we had to sit in a hot plane for thirty minutes. Seats didn't recline at all so sleep was out of the question. Just a very miserable flight overall."
Pros: "Excellent flight attendants."
Cons: "The boarding process for the economy class seems a little chaotic since there is no distinctions by zone or seat row. The result is a surge of people right when they announce boarding for that cabin."
Clean and comfortable short flight. Arrived on time.
Amazing seat was assigned to me, great food, attention and entertainment Nice airplane!
Delays, grumpy service staff

More veggie options. Or something healthier.
Pros: "Crew was excellent - friendly and helpful"
Cons: "Seats in economy too cramped - I paid extra for next seat up from basic economy which covered our baggage but, for some reason, not seats with more leg room."
Pros: "Boarding and crew great!"
Cons: "Seats extremely narrow"
Pros: "Crew were super friendly and helpful. Food was delicious, comfortable seats, great selection of entertainment."
Cons: "Cheaper baggage rates"
Cons: "Information on when we can check in on upcoming flights. Other airlines we have booked for flights will email us 24 hours prior to departure. Virgin Atlantic did not. I had to call and I was directed to their web site and was able to check in on line. Thanks"
Cons: "Staff were unhelpful and ran out of many food items by the time we were served - meaning that there wasn’t anything available for us to eat as we don’t eat eggs. The check-in was stressful and staff were keen to help - unprofessional and unsatisfactory."
Pros: "The seats reclined at a good pitch and were very comfortable. The crew were friendly and service was good."
Cons: "I understand that on the night flight, they were trying to keep the lights up for dinner service, but it prevented my toddler from being able to sleep and thus made for a difficult rest of the journey."
Pros: "Crew was nice"
Cons: "Screens have poor color quality Seat too small Legroom cut into by electronics box Row 45 next to bathroom and no windows"
Pros: "Crew was great!"
Cons: "The scone and roll were blah and dry - and so much bread in one meal!!! My seat charger didn’t work :("
Pros: "Crew was super helpful and kind. Pesto pasta was the best airplane food I’ve ever had in coach."
Cons: "Seats were really old and outdated"
Pros: "Amazing and helpful crew. Great seat."
Pros: "The crew on Virgin Atlantic was superb!"
Pros: "Excellent service!"
Cons: "Nobody was sat in the overwing emergency exit row seats for the whole flight (so nobody had been briefed on how to use them) and the tray tables for these seats were down during the flight effectively blocking the emergency exit in the event of an emergency. Potentially very dangerous"
Pros: "The flight itself was good! The one from London to Delhi was better than from JFK to London"
Cons: "I wasn’t told about my baggage were being delivered through different airlines the other day!"
Pros: "Great attentive service, good food and in-flight entertainment"
Pros: "Everything except the food"
Cons: "The food is atrocious. Even if I have to pay to upgrade my meal, I would..."
Pros: "A smoothtrip run by great staff."
Cons: "Thé food was rather stodgy overall."
Pros: "Food and snacks!!!!!"
Pros: "Great movie selection"
Cons: "They need softer seats...had to stand half the time"
Pros: "The rear section of the plane had lots of room (empty seats), enough to lay down across three seats. Pleasant and helpful crew."
Cons: "Minimal food available between departure and arrival meals; 10 hrs or so is a long time to get by on potato chips."
Pros: "Entertainment Meal service and quality"
Cons: "Staff was not concerned about anything, vague and uncaring..this was my son flying across the Atlantic idiots!! One pissed mom!!!"
Pros: "Lovely food and staff. Lots of food."
Cons: "The seat pocket in front of me was broken. I didn't want to make a fuss but one would have thought during checks pre-flight that should have been noticed and rectified. I was flying with my family including my 4 yr old and we had lots of toys to keep her entertained but had no where to put them apart from on our seats and tables when we were allowed to have them down."
Pros: "Complimentary newspaper Food service"
Cons: "Overhead reading light"
Cons: "the food selection did not meet my diet restrictions. Found it hard to avoid due to hunger over the duration"
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: "The entertainment selection was good, though I didn't need to see the blurb about having vloggers available before every movie. One of the very few airlines to use boarding by rows, which speeds up the boarding process."
Cons: "The legroom is very cramped, pretty difficult to eat your meal with the seat in front reclined. The crew were not very attentive: they completely missed me while I was waving the rubbish on their collection rounds. In the end I had to dump it myself in the toilet bins. The PA system is too loud compared to the rest of the entertainment, had to remove the headphones for each one of them."
Cons: "given milk yoghurt with VGML breakfast"
Pros: "Good entertainment, food and in-flight crew"
Cons: "Because this flight was delayed it was a miracle (involving running til my throat literally bled) that I made my connection. Ground crew could not have been less helpful - even to my friend who they knew was trying to get home to attend a family funeral."
Pros: "I was selected for additional screening at the gate. I have no problem with this at all. From the start I told them I am traveling with my fiancee. They tried to hold me back in a separate area after the screening and I once again told them my fiancee was waiting for me. One staff memeber walked with me half way back to get her and then disappeared. By the time I found her and came back, the staff memeber was no where to be found. Now we had lost are spot in the line and had to go to the back of the line. We spoke to 3 different staff people about what was going on and everyone said, oh the guy over there will help you. But no one did. The staff had No idea how to run a security check or handle paople. There was No working wifi! There was no tvs in the seats, only the old style in the aisle. The staff told me the plan was going to retire at the end of the month. The food was more for animals then for humans! We got updates by txt 10 mins before the staff updated the gate on our flight out from SFO. I have traveled all over the world with a lot of airlines and Never had such a poor service, but what is it to expect. It was United after all!"
Cons: "Refund of the whole flight."
Pros: "Virgin Premium economy offers a great up-grade on economy. Seperate check in (faster), seperate boarding (earlier), better food, service and more room than economy."
Cons: "There appears to have been an increase in cost above that you expect percentage wise. There has been reduction in the quality of the food."
Pros: "courteous attendants"
Cons: "Aircraft amenities. Small 737 for a long international flight. Waiting for busses in both Bali and Sydney."
Pros: "We were inmiddle seats -not our preference. We were told in Dublin that we had different seats to the ones we ended up in. Food was excellent, crew were very nice. Loved the "make a wish" event on this flight - a definite plus for Virgin."
Pros: "Food was good, crew was nice."
Cons: "Seat was broken. Button was stuck in so I couldn't keep the seat up. Also a light was stuck in the on position for the entire flight not allowing people to sleep."
Pros: "1st class, what's not to like?"
Pros: "Flight crew was awesome in premium economy"
Cons: "The plane was really dirty!!!!"
Pros: "Everything except the plane itself"
Cons: "Plane cramped"
Pros: "Everything was great ! The staff very nice and the plane is absolutely amazing .."
Cons: "We paid for extra leg but there was no difference between normal and extra .."
Pros: "All the meals and movies included"
Pros: "Great selection of entertainment. Crew was very accommodating. Food and drink service was great."
Cons: "Boarding process was slightly hectic."
Pros: "The plane was very nice with great lighting. More food would have been nice as it was a long flight The crew were variable - most very helpful but one or two not so much"
Cons: "Not enough food for everyone and no snacks between meals, which was very bad considering it was a 10 hour flight Entertainment was great, seats were OK (certainly had worse)"
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: "Nice crew great sitting"
Cons: "Boarding has always been slow with this trip.... disorganized"
Pros: "Business class upgrade"
Cons: "Sitting in window next time"
Pros: "Seat is small"
Cons: "On time boarding"
Cons: "My luggage did not make it with me."
Pros: "Was nice and pleasurable"
Pros: "Flight left on time. Comfortable 747-400 plane with huge overhead bins and plenty of leg room even in economy, Great cabin crew. Food was, well, airplane food. But at least there was a vegetarian choice, which I looked way better than the meat dish,"
Cons: "Service was a bit rushed at the end. In the last hour of a 10-hour flight they served another meal, which was similar to the first meal (even though it could have served as breakfast or lunch). Also had to fill out the customs declaration and prepare for landing,"
Cons: "I still think it makes more sense to board the seats in the back of the plane before those further forward. It is difficult to get past the people who stand in the aisle or take forever to try to put their bag in the overhead bin."
Pros: "Lovely crew"
Cons: "Airport is too hot"
Pros: "Great food, great service. Crew was very nice."
Cons: "The video screen at my seat was malfunctioning."
Cons: "See first comment."
Pros: "The flight was one hour late to leave Seattle and we had to run in Frankfurt airport for 20 minuts to catch the next flight and one luggage did not make it . No more"
Pros: "Lots of food with free wine"
Cons: "We booked our plane reservations through Kayak . My sister booked my reservation along with hers at the same time. Kayak put us on different planes at different times on our return flight back to the USA. I had assumed we were flying together ( sisters with the same last names), so I showed up at the airport to find out that I had missed my first flight. I already had a boarding pass for the next flight, but Kayak had canceled me and booked someone else in my seat. No more seats in economy and I had to pay $1750. Euros for another ticket. Why would 2 passengers flying together and booking together be put on different planes and different times. We will NEVER use Kayak again!7"
Pros: "Pleasant flight all around."
Pros: "The good organization and the friendly atmosphere."
Cons: "The bad movies."
Pros: "The crew, again, was fabulous. Boarding, once the stuffy wait was over, went quickly. They attended to every request with smiles, gentle humor, and without delay. Nonstop movies were a great help on this second of two long legs, and it was really nice to have control over pausing, replaying portions, and jumping ahead past sex scenes. A 10-sec forward button like the back button would be very useful to skip nudity scenes, there were families around us! The trip was as comfortable as it could be, given close proximity of seats. Appreciated the pillows and blankets, and frequent water and drinks."
Cons: "Boarding was pretty terrible - no instructions, go left, give up the water bottle we JUST BOUGHT even though it was still unopened (it had to be "sealed", still no idea what that means because the seal wasn't broken), and the waiting room was very stuffy! Seemed we should have been able to get air...? Boarding went quickly, though, thankfully. Breakfast was pretty bad, one of us just skipped it once opened because it was so unappetizing. Would have liked movie ratings to appear in the descriptions to save the risk of getting started on lame shows."
Pros: "The crew - seemed very amenable and pleasant on this flight. One helped me move to effectively solve the acute posture problem."
Cons: "The seat - window by request, but it was in front of an emergency exit The seat - is jammed in - very tight - could not put it back to relax, and could not relax my left side by the window. My left shoulder and arm and left hip started hurting - couldn't sleep - took 2 days to get rid of the numbness in my arm. I asked to move, and it became obvious that there were many empty seats in the next section behind. I moved, and my comfort improved. Why was I given such a posture killer - especially on such a very long flight with seats to spare?"
Cons: "1 person working the service desk. I had a question about our connecting flight from Frankfurt and I was told to call the 1-800 number. When I went to check my bag the woman was very rude and asked me "why do I think I can check two bags?" and questioned my Star Alliance premium silver status, demanding I show her my card (I have no card). My friend was flying with me and she was told that her carry on, mind you had flown to and within europe, was too big for the overhead storage and she had to pay 90 euros to check it and the woman held her boarding pass and wouldn't give it to her. we waited in line at the service desk for over 40 minutes so that she could pay. We arrived to the airport 2.5 hours early to eat and shop for souvenirs. We barely made it in time to get to our gate because of the inefficiencies of Lufthansa. 1 person working a service desk for a large airport is unacceptable, especially when they are 8-10 waiting to scan your baggage and not helping out at all. I had a wonderful flight to Europe on Lufthansa and was absolutely appalled at the attitudes of the airport staff and their lack of customer service."
Cons: "Seat was too small and really uncomfortable"
Pros: "Friendly crew, multiple drink services"
Cons: "Waited 40 mins after boarding with no explanation as to why we hadn't moved"
Cons: "My video player had substantially less options than the rest of my aisle. The food was below average."
Cons: "Plane was very late; boarding late; short flight so no food or entertainment, but not really a problem. Overall condition of plane was mediocre at best -- old plane, not particularly clean. It was actually Air Canada. If that is a partner of Lufthansa, very disappointed. Would not fly Air Canada again, but LOVE Lufthansa."
Pros: "Great service both before boarding the plane and while in flight. The check in line was out of control, but lufthansa staff members ensured that I could still make my flight."
Cons: "Food was pretty bad"
Pros: "1. The crew was very pleasant and responsive. 2. The entertainment selections were plenty, recent and without extra cost. 3. The food was nice (if you weren't having meat options). My travel companion was a bit disgusted by the meat. I enjoyed the pasta!"
Cons: "1. The seats were extremely uncomfortable without sufficient cushioning. It felt like sitting on a plank. My back still hurts. We also had to straighten up the seats during meals because it was so bad for the person behind. 2. Boarding is a bit disorganized. Perhaps try splitting the boarding process into zones so it isn't a mad house free for all after the initial boarders. 3. On my flight to Frankfurt, the plane was half empty, yet my seat was changed from row 8 where I would have had almost no one near me back to row 23 where they had cramped all the passesngers into one area of the plane. This was done without request or explanation."
Pros: "Entertainment, flight crew was courteous and helpful, lots of snacks, water, and free wine!"
Cons: "One of our pieces of luggage did not make it back with us. The good thing is that the Lufthansa staff was helpful, the automated emails kept me informed, and the bag was delivered to me as soon as possible. Seems to me it was as good as it gets when a piece of luggage gets lost."
Pros: "It was my first time using the upper deck of a 747. The setup is pretty decent with lay flat beds (I still couldn't sleep though). The attendants were all very nice. The food was much better than on my inbound flight on United..."
Cons: "The entire experience was ruined by one hour spent on the tarmac in Seattle, waiting for a gate to become available... This is lame not only for the passengers but also for the people waiting to pick them up. The selection on the entertainment system was limited."
Pros: "They didn't charge me for my surfboards which was great. It was my only check-on bag and under two meters and that should be free on every airline. Flight attendants were very nice and professional. I gave the food 5 stars based on other airline food, I'm not expecting restaurant quality at 37,000'. Movie selection was adequate for me, although I've seen some complaints in the reviews here."
Cons: "It was a little tricky checking in on my phone. The check email reminder didn't carry the info I needed to check in which required extra searching and copying and pasting. That experience could be streamlined. There was group confusion when being directed to board the plane on two flights."
Pros: "everything from the boarding and check-in process to in flight comfort."
Pros: "flight attendants were polite and there were two meal services."
Cons: "The flight was full and the seats were extremely close together with little room. When the person in front of me leaned back I had no room and it was hard to see the movie screen."
Pros: "Smooth boarding and flight, fun snack (cakes on a plane!), relatively quick and easy."
Cons: "I can't think of anything to complain about for European commuter flights."
Pros: "The price, the service, the food."
Cons: "The sardine can."
Cons: "I was very uncomfortable in my seat between two fellow passengers who were large individuals. For a flight duration of over ten hours, it was terrible to repeatedly have to negotiate space with them as they were spilling into my chair space. I also had to insist they not extend their legs into my foot well."
Pros: "They have some films with subtitles- perfect for Deaf people."
Cons: "Wish all films have subtitles- there are millions of deaf people in the world, you know?"
Pros: "Very friendly and accommodating crew, efficient service, okay food options and good quantity for a lengthy flight. Very happy that a vegetarian option isn't a battle anymore! The entertainment options were very nice, the time passed quickly with the many movie options."
Cons: "No real complaints, maybe the cabin air was a little stuffy, but it's too be expected on a flight of 11.5 hrs. Crew offered water and juice throughout the flight which helped."
Pros: "Vissited my brother in law in Karlsruhe Germany wonderful trip to and from Frankfurt"
Pros: "Crew was great... food was wonderful. The lie-flat seat made my day."
Pros: "Lit hands crew more caring and professional. All good."
Pros: "Comfortable and clean. Staff was kind and helpful."
Cons: "The food wasn't good. The pasta was soggy and the bread was hard and stale."
Pros: "Loved the business class upgrade"
Cons: "Lack of food choices even in business class"
Pros: "The staff are so personal and efficient. In a 10 hr flight we had 6 drink services, 2 snacks, and 2 full meals. All delicious. United and Delta could learn a LOT from this airline about customer service..."
Pros: "Crew was beyond standard. Very nice and friendly and always accommodating."
Cons: "They ran out of vegetarian meals."
Cons: "Service, always delay"
Cons: "food only fair..."
Pros: "Upgrade to business class. Staff was accommodating"
Cons: "Seats were situated next to the bathroom"
Cons: "Headphone jack still requires an adapter. Free headphones are very uncomfortable and don’t sound great. Just give out free adapters or change the jacks please. Announcements were super loud in the headphones."
Cons: "The person next to me was x and overflowing onto my area and leaning on me through the flight"
Pros: "I almost missed my next flight from Dublin to Chicago. There was not enough time between flights with current security measures. Your site should not have suggested those two flights so close."
Cons: "The flight attendants were not helpful or attentive. A nine plus hour flight and they offered drinks once, picked up garbage once and when we tried to give them garbage before landing, told us to put it in the seat pocket or toss on the floor! It looked like the plane had been trashed when we exited"
Cons: "Flight delayed, lost our luggage, broke our stroller"
Cons: "The first plane was absolutely filthy. I paid for Wifi and when connection was spotty put my laptop down still with half of the data I purchased unused, but then it wouldn't let me back on later. Food was awful. On the first flight they skipped me for drink service entirely."
Cons: "Flight not being delayed"
Pros: "There wasn't anything special about this flight to like, unless you like leaving late and no leg room."
Cons: "Try leaving on time for once, I nearly missed my connection because Aer Lingus is terrible at on time departures. I'm just under 2 meters tall, the seats were so tiny my knees were pressed into to the seat in front of me the entire trip."
Pros: "The price."
Cons: "You have to pay for confirmed seats, and the seats are uncomfortable. No free beer or wine on international flight and the ticketing in Dublin was SUPER slow!"
Pros: "Allowed us to have a week layover in Dublin on the way to Amsterdam"
Cons: "Most cramped flight I have ever experienced. Tiny seats, no legroom, and super narrow aisles so that people walking up and down would invariably bump your shoulder when they walked by - makes for a difficult sleep. Rude air hostesses Waited on ground 2 HOURS, inaccurate info, no service, nada"
Pros: "Great crew and food! Loved the comfort."
Cons: "The selection of movies could be better. There wasn't a lot to choose from."
Pros: "The whole crew was amazing! Meals were very tasty. The pillow and blanket was a nice touch. We really enjoyed the fact we all had entertainment screens."
Cons: "The selection of movies was not very grand."
Pros: "The service from the flight crew was excellent. On board meals were good, too. Although my luggage never made it on my flight to Chicago due to a delay arriving in Dublin, Aer Lingus provided me with tracking information, and I received my suitcase at my home within 48 hours."
Cons: "Food and limited movie selections"
Pros: "Friendly and helpful crew. We were served drinks and food. I liked that the flight attendants requested everyone put their seats in the upright position anytime food was served so that the person sitting behind you had space to eat."
Cons: "Seats were uncomfortable (in all fairness, most airplane seats are uncomfortable!)."
Pros: "Plane was clean and comfortable."
Cons: "Plane arrived late - no updates from the gate crew. ...coffee and soda is not free..."
Pros: "The food eas very good"
Cons: "The sests were not comfortable. Mt seat did not recline, and there was to much movement around me ro het comfortable."
Pros: "Non stop service to Seattle; going through US Customs in Dublin."
Pros: "When I think of international, I think of the huge airplane with 3 rows of seating, an extra inch of leg space for us economy flyers ...this was basically a domestic airplane and the staff was polite but nothing over the top."
Cons: "Squished like sardines. And my luggage is broken."
Pros: "Fairly comfortable flight once they fixed the air conditioning while we waited on the HOT plane."
Cons: "Could not get a crew member to respond to the call button. We got what was left for a dinner meal, no choice. Handed a ‘hot pocket’, no napkin, no drink. My headphone jack partially worked—ear buds fine but the internal connection was not working well—sound only from 1 ear bud. Not pleasant for watching or listening to entertainment."
Cons: "Very dirty. Waste in the seat back, gum on the floor"
Pros: "Crew were efficient and courteous. Food was tasty."
Cons: "Seat in front of me was broken and leaned back too far. Audio plug wouldn’t accept two prong headset. Video screen was nonfunctional on flight to Dublin."
Cons: "For some reason I am not sure of the flight was late taking off. I think the plane may have been delayed before arriving in Dublin."
Pros: "Basicbflight. Got us there."
Cons: "Late leaving resulted in huge rush through transfer in Dublin. Not really a fan of the "just go ahead and board" approach, bit it seems to work."
Cons: "My flight was cancelled approximately 36 hours before departure. Neither Aer Lingus not the booking agency Justfly.com informed me. I discovered this as I was about to leave for airport. Neither could help me to book a new flight. Justfly.com didn't see that the flight was cancelled because Aer Lingus did not inform them. I had to go to the airport and spend 8 hours in line at the ticket desk to get a new flight the next day, in addition to 2 hours spent on the phone. Had these companies done their jobs properly, I could have rescheduled my flight days earlier on the phone and not wasted an entire day of my vacation. When I asked Justfly.com for any form of compensation they refused. Will NEVER fly on this airline or book travel thru Justfly.com again."
Pros: "Flight attendants were nice"
Cons: "Not very happy with Aer Lingus’s ground crew or customer service or the way they run things. And Dublin airport is an unorganized mess. Probably will never fly with them again. Gave no concessions for canceling my flight out to Amsterdam."
Pros: "It was smooth. The flight felt like it went by pretty quickly."
Cons: "Honestly, nothing jumped out at my about this flight. All I remember is that it was not a bad experience."
Cons: "We were told to be at the airport 3 hours in advance of our 9:35AM flight. We arrived at 6:45 to find a line of passengers at the aer lingus counter and no personnel. It was at least 1/2 before anyone arrived for work. The gate on the boarding pass printed that morning, was the furthest gate and a very long walk. When we arrived there we were told it was changed. We heard a lot of gate changes over the loud speaker, but no announcement from aer lingud. British airways was at"
Pros: "Average economy for a 90 minute flight. Crew were cheerful."
Cons: "They don't have a free drink service like most European airlines."
Pros: "The only thing I can say that I liked about this flight was that we arrived a little early."
Cons: "Note: This review is for Aer Lingus a partner of British Airways. 1) Service - one of our fight attendants was incredibly rude. She clearly resents her job. 2) The plane itself was very old and not well maintained. The audio jack for the in-flight entertainment was broken and I could not watch anything. My wife complained about the touch screens being faulty and her audio system was bad. Also, the carpet and seat fabric was torn. 3) The food was disgusting. I mean, really bad. 4) There was a charge for alcohol whereas British Airways was complimentary. 5) Overall, I will never fly Aer Lingus again. It was the worst flying experience in memory."
Cons: "No complimentary refreshments offered, not even water."
Cons: "Poor gate service, insufficient information on flight, which was flown by Aer Lingus."
Pros: "The staff were so, so helpful and made sure we were all as comfortable as possible. I liked all the snacks and drinks and the no charge for checked bags. (A big help after a long trip and short on $!) And the best part? They dealt with U.S customs before we left Dublin so that we didn't have to deal with the long lines in Boston. So grateful!!!"
Cons: "My entertainment screen froze every time I tried to play a game, had to reset a few times before I gave up."
Cons: "We just returned home to New York from our trip to Amsterdam and Ireland. The trip itself was amazing despite the sub par customer service we received from Aer Lingus that definitely put a damper on our vacation. Our flight on Wed July 19th from NYC to Amsterdam went off without a hitch until we claimed our luggage, my brand new suitcase was covered with stains. Very disappointing but we went on to enjoy our time in Amsterdam. The real problems began when we flew from Amsterdam to Dublin, first we were seated all over the plane and worst of all when we arrived my husband's bag was lost. We went to customer service and completed the paper work. Everything my husband had for the trip was in that bag. Aer Lingus only texted him once and after that he had to call every day to check the status of his bag. Instead of exploring Dublin, we had to spend Sunday shopping to get him clothes for the trip. No word from Aer Lingus. Monday morning July 24 he calls to find the status of his bag. It was found in Amsterdam and was to be flown to Dublin and shipped to our next stop in Kinsale. We arrived Monday evening to find that the bag had not been shipped. Again no word from Aer Lingus. My husband called to find out the status and made arrangements to pick the bag up when we were flying back to NYC. We were happy the bag was found but my husband still was without all of his belongings for our entire trip. On Thursday July 27 we arrived at the airport early to retrieve the bag before we checked in to our flight. We were dismayed to find that there was not a person to talk to but a phone on a column to call to get help retrieving the luggage. There was a queue at the phone with people ahead of us in similar situations. Finally someone came out to escort my husband to get his bag. We were traveling with our son, and again our seats were scattered about the plane. There was no one at checkin to help us, and we didn't get help at the gate. So we had to sit separately for the 6 hour and 30 minute flight. When we claimed our bags, my bag now had tears along with the stains. This was a brand new suitcase and it is now ruined. My husband says he will never fly Aer Lingus again and this was the worst customer service he has had in his life. The customer service was virtually non existent."
Pros: "Flight went smoothly, staff were pleasant, seat was fine, entertainment worked well"
Cons: "The overall feel is that the staff are very rigid about their rules. They come down the aisle at their appointed times, but never just check up to see how people are doing. The rule about registering for a vegetarian meal 72 hours advance is ridiculous. there should always be meat-free options for people, not just vegetarians. The flight attendant was kind enough to find some fruit salad for me, out of the crew meals, but she shouldn't have to. in general they don't feel very warm or inviting."
Pros: "Friendly staff. Made efforts to assure passengers there were arrangements made for them in Dublin due to our late departure."
Cons: "I rated food and entertainment as 1 star since there is no N/A option. Our short flight did not provide them."
Pros: "i liked nothing from the experience on this leg or the journey. I was frustrated and angry."
Cons: "The check in procedure in Amsterdam took almost two hours. Then I was late to the gate. There was no assistance getting to the gate for none of the passengers who experienced these delays."
Cons: "Baggage lost for mere one-hour flight from Amsterdam to Dublin with extended delay before it was recovered."
Pros: "I understand the need for rules, but delaying 250 People because three idiots check baggage and don't show up is absurd. You need to have your own people on site who can take it off. I'll never fly you again."
Cons: "Further, you did little to ameliorate the situation for those stranded. I appreciate the hotel, but air Canada, united etc ALL offer cash compensation for delays caused by the airline..you didn't even offer an onboard drink. Also, the flight to JFK left 10 minutes after we landed: you should have held that flight rather than cost us all time/money/stress!"
Cons: "Everything from start to finish incompetent."
Pros: "comfortable seat in economy class flight not crowded"
Cons: "no food or drink, unless I was willing to buy a bottle of water for $3."
Pros: "Friendly crew. Seats were comfortable"
Cons: "There wasn't any good food options and there was a charge for everything. Not good....."
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "1. BA said I couldn't get a seat before 24 hrs before. Then when I tried to get a seat assignment I was told (by email) to contact Aer Lingus. Aer Lingus said that I should have called before 24 hrs before, and that seats were now in control of the gate (this still 22 hrs before flight time). Total lack of coordination. 2. At check-in I was first told that my bag was too big for carry-on, although BA had accepted it. I shrunk it down. Then I was told it weighed too much at 15 kg. When I asked why BA accepted the weight I was told BA's weight limit was different. 3. Net net, if BA is "arranging" the flight through a code-share it should have responsibility for insuring I am treated like a BA customer. Aer Lingus' customer treatment leads much to be desired."
Pros: "Worst experience flying of my life and I've flown quite a lot. Showed up for my flight in Amsterdam to a connecting flight in Dublin to sfo for Christmas. They told me I didn't have a seat on the ams-Dublin flight. Waited and asked everyone with aer Lingus who was available which was one woman who ignored me as much as possible whether I would make it home for Christmas. No info given. Finally got thrown (literally) a ticket after the plane was completely boarded. Barely made my connecting flight in Dublin. Arrived in sfo and my luggage never arrived. A week later, after countless phone calls, bag descriptions, and headaches, my luggage was located in Dublin. I just received my bag today with everything I needed for Christmas but didn't have. Basically aer Lingus ruined my Christmas 2016 and I still can't figure out who to log a complaint to. Worst airline ever."
Cons: "Check in was not working on line. Very frustrating."
Pros: "Service was good"
Cons: "Delayed by 30 min"
Pros: "I was comfortable as far as temperature and smoothness of flight. I was surprised to have tasty food and two meals!"
Cons: "I was really uncomfortable with no leg room. The woman in front of me really hurt my knee when she let her seat back crash into my knee ( I had to lift my leg with my hands and try to fit my foot down in a tiny space in order to cross my legs. Trying to get up to get out of the seat was extremely awkward. The worst experience was online booking. It was difficult to understand and impossible to change my seat. I even called."
Pros: "Great aisle seat on a modern plane.I was in the middle seat on an older plane for the trip there (close to 8 hours), and it wasn’t as comfortable. The trip from Reykjavík to Seattle was great: comfortable seat and more room, though they were both in the same fare class."
Cons: "After paying for 2 seats next to each other, Iceland Air decided to change the aircraft and reboked us on regular seats. I am 6ft6 with bad back therefore booked the extra legroom seats and want to have my wife next to me to assist me with putting the carry-on lugage up in the spaces above. We ended up sitting 3 seats apart, I was in the extra legroom seat but in a middle seat,so I could not put my feet in the isle to prevent leg cramps. When we boarded the flight from Reykjavik to Boston I notified the stewardess and she assured she would help, but I never saw her again and no one came to our help. Also when we entered the REK airport after flying from Amsterdam we were not notified to keep our passport on us, as we needed to go tru another checkpoint. My wife had our pasports and went to check some shops, while I was reading a newspaper. After noticing that I could not go to the boarding area for our next flight, I was able to locate my wife and we barely made it to the gate in time."
Pros: "Checkin counter was very helpful. Crew during the flight was polite and helpful even under the circumstances of having to deal with another airline's plane due to the MAX difficulties. The in flight entertainment is ok but hopefully they can get more current and a larger selection of movies."
Cons: "Boarding at the gate was unorganized even if the crew thinks it is ok. They call by rows but the attendants don't check and therefore the queue becomes a clump of people. The food offered either pre-ordered or bought on board leaves a lot to be desired."
Pros: "Returning from Europe via KEF on Icelandair is convenient and is far less expensive than a direct flight from Berlin, where we spent most of our time on this trip. There is nothing outstanding about the service on Icelandair, but is it acceptable."
Cons: "Boarding Icelandair at the Amsterdam airport is always slow, due to repeated and unexplained delays. It was not as bad this time as it was when we made the same trip a year ago, but it was far from prompt."
Pros: "Flight delayed due to mechanical keep us informed."
Cons: "The layover is to tight, in a delay either you or your bag doesn't make it. Our flight was the last flight for the day , we ran to make our connection but half the bags didn't make it."
Cons: "The attendants kept bumping the seats when they walked by."
Pros: "Seat was good, crew friendly, easy boarding"
Cons: "Newer movies, better sound from media screen, food"
Pros: "Nice clean comfortable plane with plenty of entertainment options."
Cons: "Found it much too warm in the plane"
Pros: "Everything was punctuated!"
Cons: "It was a long flight so they should give a snack or something to eat!"
Pros: "The in-flight entertainment system is very good (once you get past the spam video ads for Icelandic attractions). The flight crew on both flights was very attentive and friendly. I really appreciate that IcelandAir gives out toy boxes to the children on the plane; that's very nice."
Cons: "They give you no food whatsoever, even for transatlantic flights (not even snacks), and they do not make you aware of this prior to being on the airplane. If you want to eat, you have to purchase their overpriced airplane food from the menu."
Pros: "Short duration and cheap price."
Cons: "I wish there was a larger selection of food to order and that the portions were larger. The beverage cart only came by once during the trip, though water was offered twice. The entertainment selection was mediocre with mostly old movies and many movies offered only in Icelandic."
Pros: "Nice leg Space"
Cons: "They were missing lots of food on the menu. There was an delay but we didn’t get any info or apology."
Cons: "Icelandair attitude suck and is the reason I will not even visit Iceland now."
Pros: "Inexpensive ticket. Boarded and left right on time. Small, crappy plane (757=200). It was so old, there were still ashtrays in the back of the cabin!"
Cons: "The D gate area for check-in is a zoo, and we saw more than one couple looking for the correct gate. We were charged a bag fee of $77. IF one goes on line 36 hours before you can get if for $55. We were unaware that the bag wasn't included (our bad, of course), but when we pointed out that on Iceland Air check in there was NO place that asked for bags?? They said it was our fault for not "reading the fine print". We can only check in 24 hours in advance, so WHO would think to "manage trip"...36 hours in advance?? Especially in rural Iceland which is where we were 36 hours ahead of time. We would have gladly paid the discounted rate for the bag, but no on was willing to help us with that, so we got soaked for $77 and were told to take our concerns to Iceland air customer service."
Pros: "Just enough room to be comfortable and the seats reclined enough so you could sleep. But I watched three good movies instead."
Cons: "I would have looked led a free cookie."
Pros: "Nice service"
Cons: "Long waits to board, wait for bus from term to plane; no clear direction from gate staff as to where queues were"
Cons: "No free meal or alcohol. Small seats."
Pros: "From Amsterdam to Reykjavik was not so bad."
Cons: "Narrow seats. Not enough space."
Pros: "Staff on the ground were poor. Check in agents were sllothlike. Not a good morning or thank you either. Suoervisor talked to agents in language we couldn't understand but appeared to be chit chat. I asked if it might be possible to buy an upgrade. Gate agents were on their phone inconvenienced by my question. Turns out there were many empty premium seats that we would have bought that remained empty on the flight."
Pros: "They are very good with kids."
Cons: "Adult meals were not included, and I wish they would have offered water more often given the length of the flight."
Pros: "The services and staff is great in the plane"
Cons: "While boarding the flight from amsterdam the plane was too hot and suffocated due to some technical difficulty. I almost passed out sitting at my seat until they gave me some cold towels and cold water. the temperature inside the plane was at 35C and everyone was sweaty before the plane took off and the engines got rolling."
Pros: "My luggage made it."
Cons: "We got to Iceland late, ran to the gate to catch the next flight, got on and found out you don't provide a meal. It's one thing to have time to buy food you actually want before you board, but if it's your fault for a delayed flight, it just seems unfair. We had already been traveling for 6 hours and it was dinner time when we boarded. The flight took off (and unlike most flights I've ever been on) the crew took until close to 9;00 to serve us anything. Needless to say we were hungry, tired, and frustrated to pay for overpriced small portions of junk food. Not even complimentary pretzels?! I was more comfortable on my hour long flight to Boise from Seattle where we got free snacks and the flight crew booked it to get us drinks before turbulence set in and they had to sit down. Also, though the exit row gives extra leg room, not being able to put your seat back on an 8 hour flight is tough. In the past I've had amazing experiences with Iceland Air. I'm sad to say this time wasn't one of them."
Cons: "Not only are food prices high in Iceland... they make you pay for food on a 8 hour trams-continental flight!!! Ugh!"
Pros: "On time departure, on time arrival and good in flight service provided by excellent flight attendants."
Cons: "Confusion at the airport, but that was due to sheer number of travelers. The airline staff handled it very well."
Pros: "Adequate space around seat; movies"
Cons: "Flight delayed >hour with passengers already on plane which made being on a 7+ hour flight even longer; terminal at Reykjavik was very crowded without adequate seating; food very expensive and long lines."
Pros: "Staff is very friendly and easy to get to and from connecting flights. Chairs are reasonable but still too little leg room"
Cons: "The slick jetway stairs when it rains or snows. Disorganized check in in Amsterdam , but that is a reflection on the subcontractor."
Pros: "The airline was wonderful and managed to get us through the airport with such a small layover. Your employees in rekjiavik are awesome!"
Pros: "The entertainment system was great. There were tons of movies that were available in flight which was nice."
Cons: "The crew was not that nice, there wasn't even a snack offered (I was told no multiple times when I asked for water), and they failed to keep us updated on all delays/connections. I was very disappointed when we were delayed 45 minutes and were given no updates as to the delay. We had a connecting flight from Reykjavik to JFK and we landed 10 minutes before the connecting flight was to take off. No one on board made an announcement or really knew what was going on. For an airline that has branded itself "my stopover" they should have reassured and updated all passengers as to connections and delays. It was very nerve wracking and did not need to be that way. Very disappointing."
Cons: "Food was available but cost $$$$, on such a long flight I would expect a complimentary meal, or at least a snack. NA beverages were free at least."
Pros: "I liked the in flight entertainment."
Cons: "The cabin was way over heated and the boarding process was unnecessarily long and arduous. The flight was extremely turbulent after the captain guaranteed good weather."
Cons: "The airport lost power for about 10 seconds, but our flight was delayed by over 30 minutes. The crew wasn't able to tell us whether the delay was due to the power loss or another plane being late, which we saw unloading."
Pros: "The entertainment provided was great, the seats were fairly comfortable and the flight crew was great"
Pros: "What's nice is Iceland air allows free seat selection."
Cons: "Icelandair offers no meals or snacks on an overseas 7+ hour flight. That's pathetic. I don't mind cutting corners to save air fare price, but you have to offer SOMETHING to eat, a cold sandwich, chips, anything, other than beverages. They only make like once beverage pass during the 7 hours, which is also cheap. The movies are extremely old. I think there was one movie from last year. Otherwise their old favorites. The movie/TV/music selection is pretty poor. So either bring your own movies to watch or sleep, which is also hard. Iceland's international Keflavik airport, is in need of improvement if they're going to try to increase tourism. While it was Nov, and short days, it was windy and snowing. They use buses to get you to the plane or you have to walk about 50 yds. If you're carting big carryons, are seniors or handicapped, it's rough. You don't want to wear a coat for this short boarding/deboarding because you don't want to have to store it in the overhead. They need to get gangways for boarding or provide something for people wait in. There is no waiting area with seats while you wait for your plane. On one departure, people were sitting on the stairs or floors. There are some waiting areas, but they're away from the gates, and not enough seats. What made it worse, they had three flights leaving almost the same time from gates next to each other. There were crowds and lines that made no sense, people were cutting inline, and it was chaos. They don't know how to run an airport. Amsterdam didn't have waiting areas either or they were very small Not the typical American airport waiting areas we're used to. At Amsterdam you do your own boarding and luggage check in, which is confusing the first time you do it. There are things I like about European travel, but this isn't one of them."
Pros: "The entertainment was great. It made my 8 hour flight bearable as I had something to watch/listen to."
Cons: "I must have had some bad luck because I was sitting next to an Icelandic man who was incredibly chatty and intoxicated. I kept wondering when the flight would cut off his consumption because throughout the entire 8 hour flight, he ordered drink after constant drink. Two wine bottles and countless vodkas. The amount of his drinking added to his rude behavior and he spoke very ignorantly and blatantly rude about my home country. I was discouraged when no staff member cut him off or asked him to behave respectfully. It was a very uncomfortable flight."
Pros: "The entertainment screen is very good and offers lots of choices, especially important on a long flight."
Cons: "The boarding process was something I've never encountered, and I've been flying for many years.. It was a cold rainy afternoon and all passengers were told to get on a bus out on the tarmac. We walked out through gale force winds to get to the bus. There were approximately 100 people on the buses. There were no seats bus and we all stood jammed together for at least half and hour, not knowing why or how long we would be there. An elderly man standing behind me said he thought he was going to have heart attack. The windows were all steamed up but someone finally opened one to let in some air. Even when we finally all got settled in the plane for the flight, there was no explanation, compensation or apology for the crazy bus caper. I will never fly Icelandic Air again."
Pros: "Liked that it was a direct flight, and thus was convenient. Decent seats and nice to have aisle seat."
Cons: "1)In flight food--No included food or alcohol on an 8 hour international flight?? In all of my travels, I have NEVER seen this. Seems cheap. Didn't even include peanuts or pretzels!! Glad we brought our own food onto flight, after having learned the hard way on way over to Europe from Seattle. Over $15 for a sandwich?? Absurd 2)Coming back from Iceland to Seattle, I saw many open seats in the Exit row, and the stewardesses refused to allow anyone to sit there, including a kind elderly couple whose husband was randomly selected to go through an hour-long stressful security check (despite being enrolled in the Global Entry program)."
Pros: "The blankets were warm and he entertainment had a good selection."
Cons: "No free food on a 7.5 hour flight.... and the food options were so meh. I bought this measly little salad for 13€ both ways and was still starving but kind of opposed to spending more on what was essentially a lean-cuisine with the Iceland logo. For reference, a 10 year old ate 3 of the in-flight meals (so about 40€ worth. That's how small these things were). Overall decent flight but I saw no difference in service or amenities on this transatlantic flight compared to any domestic flight."
Cons: "The boarding process was very poor. There were at least 4 US-bound international flights crammed into a tiny corner of the airport, all trying to board simultaneously (Denver, Chicago, Boston, Seattle). There were hundreds (maybe a thousand) of people standing shoulder to shoulder trying to get to their gate. There were few, if any, overhead announcements to inform passengers of the boarding status. There was no organization to the boarding process. We didn't board by group, zone or row, so it was a free-for-all on the plane. This led to very long boarding times. I think the boarding situation was actually dangerous. If there had been a fire or an emergency in that boarding area, there's no way those several-hundred passengers would be able to exit the area safely."
Cons: "Terrible boarding, no service or attendance, unprofessional and unfriendly attitude. I arrived 3 hours before departure and had to stand in lines that were not clearly defined for 2 and a half hours. Everybody complained. Even the luggage band when I checked my bag was broken. Nobody came to assist the passengers"
Pros: "In flight entertainment was good"
Cons: "A warm meal would be nice."
Pros: "The airplane was new and had a reasonable collection of movies in the personal entertainment system"
Cons: "Where to start... Keflavik is the worst layover airport I can think off. No space, no amenities, no bathrooms and the layout fircing you to go through a way overcrowded store and a single food option for all converging flights in a 2 hr timeframe. (Unless you hangout before passport check) Than Iceland air.. Even worse. No food, not even a snack for free. The food they do sell is last weeks pre packed leftover sandwitches from the airport shop. They stop by 2x during a 8 hr flight and have to see if they can get you a coffee. For kids they bring a free meal but this is a macaroni salad not catered for kids"
Cons: "The gate situation at the Iceland airport is terrible. They have no place for people to sit. We flew through Iceland from Amsterdam continuing on to Portland. When we went to our out bound flight there was no place to sit. Hundreds of people were sitting on the floor. Eventually it was standing room only for over an hour. Immediately adjacent to our gate were 4 other gates. All flight departures from these gates were scheduled with 20 minutes of each other! That's nearly 1,000 passengers gathering in a narrow concourse with no separate gate seating. Very miserable conditions. Need I say more."
Pros: "We did not know our gate was changed and went to the wrong gate. Our flight from Amsterdam was delayed and although we went straight to our next flight we almost missed it and two of our three bags did not arrive at Seattle when we did."
Cons: "I liked the northern lights effect of the flight from Seattle to Keflivick."
Pros: "- We arrived safely. - Crew was cordial, polite and professional. - Company allows delaying flight delay up to a week free of charge, to enable tourism in Iceland (we did not take advantage this time)."
Cons: "- Reykjavik airport boarding is a mess (as always). No waiting area with seating near gates. People are standing in hallways like cattle. - Plane was louder than usual, even though we were seated near front, 2 rows behind first class. - insufficient legroom for taller people. - company charges extra for exit row seats. - no complimentary food, except for children under 12, for a transatlantic flight. - some trash (plastic bottles) left under seats from previous flight. - human waste smell from septic tank in cabin toward end of flight."
Pros: "I had an exit seat and was the first one of the plane. I get nervous on planes so sitting across from the flight attendant and seeing how nonchalant and calm she was during takeoff and landing was awesome and mildly soothing. She also didn't make any eye contact while I quietly freaked out..like a pro!"
Pros: "New, clean interiors of the planes, help getting wheelchairs in IAD, KEF, and JFK for wife"
Cons: "Flights constantly late, connections missed, luggage not catching up until the next day, terminal in Reykjavik small, dirty - toilets really small and very dirty and unsanitary, not calling for people that are in wheelchairs or need extra time boarding before the flight, having to use steps to get down from the 757 in Keflavik almost impossible for someone who needs a wheelchair for mobility, then crowded into a bus to get to the terminal, tight spacing for knees between seat rows"
Pros: "Had tunnel loading, boarded flight from back of plane, and called out the rows to board."
Cons: "When we got to the gate in Amsterdam, there were only about 25 seats in the waiting area for a 767 jet. Most people had to sit on the floor or stand, which was difficult for my 81 year old aunt. You really need more seating."
