Cons: "Smooth on time flight"
Pros: "The seats were ok."
Cons: "The flight was delayed over 3 hours so I missed my connection in Chicago to Seattle. I’m now stick in Chicago overnight and have to be on a 6 am flight tomorrow. The Delta staff at LaGuaurdia was extremely rude and not helpful at all. Hate Delta......"
Pros: "Flight left on time"
Cons: "Gate crew had trouble identyfing boarding pass on their computer. Difficulty getting on plane"
Pros: "Fast boarding, friendly crew, and comfy seats"
Cons: "It was pretty bumpy and a few times we changed altitude very quickly"
Pros: "I loved the flight attendants and the desk staff everyone was so friendly and made me want to travel delta again."
Cons: "Delta doesn’t offer military spouses free checked bags and I found this out at the airport. It was disheartening, but at least it’s Delta and not the airline that is supposed to represent America."
Pros: "On time/ early arrival!"
Cons: "Most bring on 2 large carry ons slowing down boarding an de- planeing."
Cons: "Plane journey awful. Speaker had a loud buzzing noise all the time so never heard a word bad landing. Rattling plane Very cold."

Cons: "It felt super hot and I wish there was food included in such a long flight."
Pros: "Quick flight"
Cons: "Flight attendant spoke like a robot. Could not understand her."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Small aircraft"
Pros: "Staff, service, options"
Pros: "As usual great staff and awesome entertainment/connectivity"
Cons: "Due to weather & maintenance flight was delayed for IFR release & fuel temperature gauge issues. Staff was very helpful. Would have appreciated a drink voucher. Some unprofessional passengers took their frustrations out on the flight attendants."
Cons: "Over an hour delay before boarding due to supposedly bad weather. Because flight was overbooked they were offering $400 gift card to change to standby on another flight. If you didn’t make that flight (evening), you’d be confirmed on a flight the following morning with one stop in Detroit (we booked a nonstop to Chicago). Uh, no thanks. Then to top it off, we’ve landed and been told that it will be at least an hour before we can deplane due to no availability at the gate (it’s 1145 pm right now). All this plus their new policy of not allowing us to select our seats because we bought the cheapest tickets. Really Delta? You go ahead and cater to the rich and I’ll choose to fly with another airline."
Pros: "Crew friendly"
Cons: "Middle seat with no option for me to move"
Cons: "Break downs again... At least this time they found another plane."
Pros: "Flight attendants were pleasant."
Pros: "Friendly service, comfortable seat, on time, no issues."
Pros: "The crew was great"
Cons: "The flight was 4 hours delayed"
Pros: "I flew on a basic economy fare (I understand the restrictions) and was seated in Economy Comfort +, so that was appreciated."
Cons: "I could see on the Fly Delta app that I had been placed in seat 10B, but neither the app nor my boarding pass gave me a group to board with, so I assumed that I needed to board with group 3, which necessitated gate-checking my rollerboard bag. Only when I approached the gate to board did I notice on the info screen that I had been "upgraded" to Comfort + and granted boarding with the Sky Priority group. I wish this had been clearer so I could have avoided waiting to board and gate-checking my bag. Minor inconvenience but room for improvement on Delta's part."
Pros: "Friendly staff and comfortable seating"
Pros: "This was not my original transfer flight but everyone was much nicer and helpful than serious and being rude. Love Delta, I did not flight United because I wouldn’t have met my United flight once landing in ATL. The Young African American woman who was at the gate was amazing and so reassuring that I would make my flight to Chicago. Would book Delta, just because of how nice she was to me."
Pros: "i liked that staff and crew were very communicative and pleasant."
Cons: "one crew member didn't show up and caused delayed flight."
Pros: "Flight was on time. Boarded quickly with no fuss."
Pros: "Flt on time, very nice and friendly gate agent and flight attendant"
Cons: "Too tight and seats not comfortable."
Pros: "The Delta people were solicitous, efficient and brilliant the whole way through. We had not a bit of trouble. Our first class seats were comfortable, but with the supplied blanket, pillow and poor air conditioning it was a hot flight. The cabin personnel were wonderful as per usual, and my tasty gin and tonic soothed any discontent. I wish I could fly this way all the time!"
Cons: "The private contractor handling wheelchair assistance was terrible. A Delta employee theorized that they do not pay enough to attract and retain personnel. Our pre-arranged chair was not there, multiple calls by our Delta assistant finally got us a ride to the chair holding area, but after about 45 minutes we gave up and shuffled off to the security area on foot. Thank goodness my hubby is mobile enough for that to have been an option. When we abandoned our wait we were still 4th in line for an attendant to push the chair. If Delta has any responsibility in this it would be in the retention and compensation for the private contractor."
Cons: "The delta studio didn't work with Android 8"
Pros: "We were traveling with a toddler and infant but put in different row because the tickets were purchased separately. Gate staff promptly put us together and even bumped us up to delta comfort. Was a very pleasant trip. Thanks delta!"
Pros: "Plane arrived early"
Cons: "They board the front of the plane first, meaning the aisles get clogged up slowing down the process. Also, staff kept insisting pre boarding that more people needed to check their bags because there wasn't enough overhead bin space, but there were plenty of bins not full by take off."
Pros: "Accident on way to airport, so I showed up to check bags 45 minutes before flight time. They said they couldn't get the bag to the plane..in 45 minutes? So, they put on the next flight... 6 hours later. Said I could fly without the bag... uh, no thanks. They would not look for alternatives without charging me more. Flight attendants were crabby, otherwise everything was fine. I flew British Airways a few months ago. Night and day. Seriously. Delta does not even approach having good service. There was no comparison to British Air--- Delta is not in the same league."
Pros: "Airline stewards were very friendly and pleasant."
Cons: "We booked with Delta, but were put on Air France. Even though we had our boarding passes in hand we had to wait in long, slow line for baggage tags because they would not print from kiosk. There was minimal Air France staff on duty serving thousands of passengers during busy season (July). While the lines grew larger, the staff was reduced from 4 to 2. Another long, slow line for customs, another long slow line for security=Charles De Gaulle airport was awful. We arrived at the airport 4 hours before our departure time and got to our boarding gate with no time to spare."
Cons: "Very uncomfortable, seats did not recline and seats way too close together."
Pros: "Entertainment options weren't bad. Most of the crew was polite other than one flight attendant who seemed ambivalent and unhappy to be there."
Cons: "Three hour+ flight and just one tiny bag of pretzels? And no lemon or lime wedges on the beverage cart? Plus, I have to pay extra for one checked bag. I will only fly Delta if I have to in the future. Subpar airline."
Pros: "What I liked: Sky Priority privilege came with separate luggage check-in queues and early boarding"
Cons: "What I disliked: Seats were too small No beverages or snacks offered No USB or power outlets available Three different groups board before Delta Comfort (e.g. those needing more time, travelers with children, first/business class) Didn't see the value compared to a less expensive main cabin ticket"
Cons: "Very cramped seating, the 5 hour layover in Frankfort was rough, When we landed after 9 hours I wanted to use the restroom and the stewardess said we had to exit the plane immediately"
Pros: "They hand out wine like it's candy"
Cons: "Also, they hand out wine like it's candy - be careful!"
Pros: "Got to the destination"
Pros: "Love Lufthansa"
Cons: "Only reason I chose Lufthansa was that I was informed that 23kg of checked in luggage was included. It was NOT. I don't care whose fault it is. Lufthansa still says that this is included on their website. I demand reimbursement."
Cons: "Having more than one person at the curtesy desk when half the plain’s luggage was left in Germaine"
Cons: "Space is limited even for a small built person. Too crowded considering long the travel time"
Cons: "The plane is still on the run way waiting for a gate & I’ll miss my shuttle bus to my next stop. Darn..."
Cons: "The arm rests on either side of my seat where closed so I had limited mobility in my seat (by closed I mean they didn’t move and had no open space between where your arm sits and the top of the chair)"
Cons: "My seat was assigned to someone else and I paid for an upgrade but got a center seat with less legroom than what I paid for"
Cons: "We waited for an hour at the gate for other passengers, to where we missed our connection in Chicago and did not get back to Austin, TX for another 24 hours."

Pros: "Lufthansa and SAS. A great combination."
Cons: "Nothing to not like."
Cons: "A lot to improve on the seat size for comfort."

Cons: "No boarding advantages as a star alliance silver member."
Cons: "Didn't happen. Missed it and got re routed thru United."

Cons: "A disaster but was able to arrive 5 hours later to my destination. Better than a day late."
Pros: "The stewardess who served drinks and snacks were kind, fast, and efficient."

Cons: "I called for a crew member 5 times and waited 25 minutes for anyone to help me with just some water. I had to get up and go to the very back of the plane to ask for some water. The plane was hot and no air to be found. This was all after we had to get back off the plane before takeoff. It was terrib"
Cons: "Need more leg room!!! Larger meals needed."
Pros: "Cabin Crews was extremely good and hospital. Transfer point staff buggy / wheal Chair was good and second to none."
Cons: "Transfer point needs upgrade."
Cons: "I have ordered Wheelchair for my parents which one of my parent didn't get it on Mumbai Airport. When they arrived on Amsterdam Netherlands Airport they were dropped to the gate assigned first and once the gate changed on the fly no body came to help them moving to the new gate assigned which was far away to walk. Nobody even came to tell them that the gate has been changed. It was because of my father's alertness they didn't miss the connecting flight and when my father asked help to members on airport none of them helped my parents and other 4 co passengers which also were on wheel chairs. It was so scary experience for them that they asked me not to book any more flights with Jet Airways. I won't recommend Jet Airways to any of my friends for their parents to travel to USA. I strongly recommend you guys to take a strict action against this. This is so unacceptable."
Pros: "Great service"
Pros: "Everything was clean and well organized."

Pros: "Good entertainment options. Nice flight attendants"

Cons: "We did not get two of baggage at the destination."
Pros: "He missed it due to having a 32 minute layover, which he ran all the way to board."
Cons: "he had no choice but to look at the closed door of his flight, and wait an additional 7 hours and they didn't even give him a voucher for food. I'm his mother, I'm currently visiting family in Scotland, so couldn't help him much. I'm pretty disgusting and disappointed by the whole experience."
Pros: "crew were absolutely delightful, full of smiles and doing everything to make you comfortable. seats were fine enough and got some work done and a bit of sleep. first lunch was fresh and tasty, but the second, a burger, was edible, but not much more."

Pros: "Food was good and crew members were very nice"

Pros: "Good flights. Good prices."
Pros: "Decent seat size. Sorta slept the whole flight."

No hay un teléfono a donde hablar, la web está desactualizada y con información equivocada. Direccionan a usar canales de twitter y facebook que no responden. Primer experiencia en KLM y no pienso nunca más usar esta aerolínea. Llevar el equipaje o resolver un problema sobre valijas es de lo más básico de una aerolínea y no lo hacen."
Pros: "Flight was on time and quick and comfortable"
Pros: "had problems checking in , in that I was charged for a suitcase! I have since checked my paper work and found thad that I had paid for a case! I will follow this up when I return to the UK"

Cons: "Not much to comment on here."
Cons: "OLD plane without comfort or entertainment"
Pros: "I really like the spaciousness, the plug ins and general service"
Cons: "I have a dairy allergy but had no option to prepurchase a dairy free meal. It made for a very unenjoyable flight as I couldn't eat anything they had. What was worse was after I told them of my situation they said they understood and had a meal that would do but there was cheese, yogurt, milk chocolate, etc."
Pros: "It was so easy to board and I had no inconvenience. It took 4 minutes from when I said goodbye to my family till when I was at the front of the gate."
Cons: "Nothing! It was all great!"
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: "Easy airport business"
Pros: "Free wee cake."
Cons: "Nothing in particular."
Pros: "staff hospitality, cleanness of the cabin and toilet and punctuality of the flight"
Cons: "lack of meal options"
Pros: "Comfortable flight to Amsterdam for vacation in UK. More meals than expected. Also wasn't expecting some of the comforts offered to "regular" class seats like eye masks, ear plugs, pillows and blankets. It was an overnight flight, so maybe that should have been expected, but I don't think we had those 4 years ago when traveling overseas."
Cons: "Nothing. This is filler text to meet min characters."
Pros: "The service, entertainment, food, the crew, the aircraft were excellent."
Cons: "They put us in a Transavia plane."
Pros: "Food and drink service"
Cons: "Boarding pass facility"
Pros: "leg room economy compared to KLM"
Cons: "full flight, no upgrade possible"
Cons: "Luggage (being handled by Air France in Basel) was first marked as delayed... nothing of the flight was in the end put on the belt and instead dropped off at Lost and Found. Ridiculous service since this was in no way announced to the people waiting for their suitcase."
Cons: "I missed my flight because of MU"
Pros: "Mostly on time, better than other flights"
Cons: "Boarding was a disaster - Reykjavik needs some serious re-tooling."
Pros: "The seat has minimal cushioning"
Cons: "Boarding at the airport was a nightmare. There were many other flights boarding at the same time and the lines were mixing together and everyone was confused."
Cons: "Quick and easy experience."
Cons: "Reykjavik airport is a nightmare."
Pros: "Decent selection of movies, more legroom than some carriers."
Cons: "Booked nonstop flights, Icelandair cancelled the flight and booked us with long layovers because our nonstop flight wasn’t filled. No compensation was given despite spending much more time and money than expected. Won’t fly with them again after this experience."
Pros: "Friendly staff and timely departure"
Pros: "Entertainment system with responsive touch screens, good sound and lots of choices. Flight on time. Professional crew."
Cons: "Limited food selection (all food cost extra) and food was mediocre. Boarding in Reykjavik was slow and not well organized. While the crew hands out small water bottles upon boarding, more water should be offered during a long flight."
Pros: "We saw Greenland from the plane with the glacier, very nice! Comfortable plane!"
Cons: "The hostess we’re not friendly..."
Cons: "The connection times are just too short. An hour works fine when there are no delays, but we landed for our connecting flight 10 minutes before departure both times and had to run through the airport and customs."
Pros: "counter and crew are very nice"
Cons: "I missed my connecting flight that was 2.5 hours later. It cost me $700 extra to get home the next day."
Pros: "At least IA has great entertainment system with many movie options."
Cons: "Iceland Air has no self baggage check area. It appears that SAS has a monopoly here and handles everything, which means waiting in multiple lines even if you self check and print bag tags at the kiosk. What’s the point if you have to go the service area to check your bags?"
Cons: "No updates on flight delays"
Pros: "The plane looked clean"
Cons: "Too warm Stewardess service almost nonexistent. No food for international flight. Food available for purchase. They serve the complimentary beverage after they are done with selling food"
Cons: "Had to fly to Boston instead of Chicago. Missed connecting flight in Boston."
Pros: "Decent movie selection"
Cons: "Boarding was a disaster. We were late because icelandair had to put people on buses and shuttle them to the plane. But there weren't enough buses so we waited in the first bus for over half an hour until two more arrived in queue. We were all just standing there with no explanation. Then, they kept the plane extremely hot the whole flight. Very uncomfortable throughout. They clearly don't know what they are doing on icelandair."
Cons: "Bus gates in a driving rain are a negative."
Pros: "The staff are good, but the plane is older and not very comfortable. Even if it is clean it is hard to tell. It’s the last flight to our area, but it as on time at 12:20a, and the wait for baggage was short."
Cons: "I was cold, but it was as a short flight, so I didn’t suffer long."
Pros: "Nothing that I can think of..."
Pros: "Icelandair is the best airline I have ever flown with."
Cons: "I liked everything!"
Cons: "flight was delayed an hour, another hour to get luggage... main problem, however, was that once i was at FRA airport, the added a $105 surcharge on my luggage because supposedly it was an "economy light" ticket that doesn't allow checked luggage. It wasn't on the way over and it doesn't say anywhere on the ticket. To make things worse, none of the people at the counter were actually Iceland Air employee, so noone was able or willing to tell me anything about this (quote from employee "everything I tell you will be used against me" not sure if she was flippant or scared) Anyway, watch out for them screwing you over where they can"
Pros: "same as above"
Cons: "same as above"
Cons: "Same as above."
Pros: "The staff wss very friendly and efficient."
Pros: "This was our first flight with Iceland Air and we kind of looked forward to it. On the way oversease we were immediately rebooked onto Swiss Air, before arriving at the airport, because Iceland Air had a delay and knew we would miss our connecting flight to Germany. We were very impressed by this and very happy with Swiss Air, also. On the way back we liked the roomier plane and the relative punctuality of the flights. Our luggage arrived fine and quickly at the end destination, despite the short layover, which often leads to lost luggage."
Cons: "Our biggest complaint is that Iceland Air does not offer meals as part of your ticket on its flights. They expect you to upgrade (and pay) for 'economy comfort' in order to get the meals and seating included in most other regular economy tickets. I don't think that being on a 6.5 hour flight (and a 3.5 hour flight immediately before without chance of making puchases at the airport in between, due to their delay) without a meal being included in your ticket is acceptable practice. They had a meny from which you could purchase food, things like baguette with ham/cheese, salad, oatmeal, instant noodles etc. But the prices for these cheap cafeteria options were insane. From the cheapest ($7 for a small instant oatmeal) to $16-$20 for a salad or small main course you would have to spend an additional 25-35$ per meal per person to get the usual airplane meal that all other airlines I know of include (2 per overseas flight). We did go hungry, eat candy, bought one little oatmeal and pretty much will avoid Iceland Air for that reason in the future. We thought it was outreageous to be asked to spend this amount of money or go without food for over 9 hours."
Pros: "The entertainment and ability to charge your phone was awesome. The flight attendants were professional. The flight was on time to Oslo and from also, as well as to and from Reykjavik from Kennedy and Boston."
Cons: "There was no one at a desk to welcome you. No boarding children or the back rows of the plane first. I almost missed my flight to Boston from Reykjavik because the gate was actually an unmarked door with a flight of stairs. I have never been on any airline with such an inferior boarding experience. Just swipe your boarding pass and wait with the other miserable looking passengers. No nice facilities to sit either. Many people just on the floor."
Pros: "This 767 was a very nice and spacious plane"
Cons: "No snacks, no meals offered"
Pros: "Nice and confortable flight, which is rare now days.."
Cons: "Small.seats, could be a bit bigger.."
Cons: "Was surprised to learn that the meal and headset are not included in the economy price. Competitors charge less, feed and entertain you! Not planning on travelling on this airline anymore."
Pros: "Nice team"
Cons: "No meal included very disappointing. + nothing appealing in menu + oat meal I ordered came out cold and half coocked. IA looks cheap scale really"
Pros: "On time arrival, smooth flight, efficient service, good price."
Cons: "Seats lack sufficient padding in the back...second trip to Iceland, second back ache on the plane. And for a 5.5 hour flight, even a small snack or breakfast item would be appreciated. No food at all unless purchased separately isn't sustainable, even in this market, in my opinion. That and the seats just annoy people."
Pros: "The crew was nice and friendly"
Cons: "The flight from Iceland to Chicago was delayed 6 hours, and they kept changing the departure time every 1.5 and 2 hours, and they provided minimal information, and did not repeat this information much. It was disorganized"
Pros: "The seats had screens with movies/music/tv shows. The flight attendants were very nice."
Cons: "The boarding process was hectic and unorganized. Nobody got extra time if they needed it. From the gate we took a bus to the plane but just as we pulled up the crew was getting in. We sat on the bus for 30 minutes and nobody communicated what was going on. The flight was very choppy and a bit scary at times. There were no snacks. I was not impressed at all."
Pros: "Pleasant flight."
Cons: "I wish Icelandic had better food choices."
Pros: "The crew were kind, attentive, and pleasant. The leg room was appreciated"
Cons: "Not even a complimentary snack was offered during the 7 hour flight, let alone a glass of wine or beer. These used to come standard. The entertainment system was also of poor quality in that the audio connection was damaged."
Cons: "Check in at London Gatwick had a huge long snaking line that barely moved, as the gate agents apparently had two speeds: slow and stop. Took forever to inch forward, lucky I arrived almost three hours early, as check in and bag drop almost made me late for my plane. Transferred to another plane in Reykjavik, and had the WORST EXPERIENCE EVER in boarding. Airport is poorly marked, lucky it is small, because I finally figured out where to go. Huge crowd waiting to board, with NO gate agents or other Icelandair employees in sight. FINALLY the line started moving, but no announcement of boarding groups. Since I had an assigned seat I waited until the last in line to board. The first people in line must have sat in the plane for over an hour. The flight was delayed another hour because the luggage was not loaded. Horrible experience."
Pros: "Same as above"
Cons: "Boarding took an hour. We were 45 min late."
Pros: "The staff was very professional. The counter person in Hamburg kindly took the effort to move me to an exit row. (His plane diagram may have been incorrect though, because I ended up a row ahead of exit row, but I really appreciated the effort he made.)"
Cons: "Food/drink is extra, which is a little stingy for a six-hour flight. The seat space is about as minimal as I would care to get. I was unable to get my seat to go back, so I couldn't compensate for the seat in front of me being in the full recline position."
Cons: "Brutally rude"
Cons: "our flight home was canceled without any email warning or any sort of message about it. We had to wait in the airport and call multiple people on our own to find out first, what was wrong, and two how to resolve the situation. It was not pleasant after waking up at 4AM to catch the flight in the first place."
Pros: "Sparkling water"
Cons: "No snacks"
Cons: "long flight, no snacks."
Pros: "Expensive flight and no service. No food for an international flight. Flight itself was not smooth. Seats aren't comfortable."
Pros: "A little more room than standard economy long-haul flights. Entertainment available on all seatbacks. Very friendly flight crew."
Cons: "Wished for free wine but oh well. My seat back screen had to be reset but that was about it."
Pros: "Seemed like there was extra leg room, compared to our last flight on American, where my husband's legs were literally touching the seat in front of him when he sat down. I also appreciate when the headrests have those little wing things so it makes it easier to fall asleep in a chair by keeping your head in place. The blankets were cosy. The crew was super efficient. It's the fastest I have ever gotten my drinks on a plane. They also seemed to be very helpful to the family with small children ahead of us, and seemed to help the baby stop crying, which was nice."
Cons: "I wish I knew in advance that we would have had to pay for food so that I could have gotten some food (because in general I assume for transatlantic flights that there are meals included. The boarding process was a bit jumbled, although still pretty efficient, but I think that's because of the airport layout rather than a fault specifically of the airline."
Pros: "The crew was very friendly and accommodating."
Cons: "The temperature on the flight to Iceland was excessively warm. I am typically a person who enjoys the warmer temperatures but most passengers were uncomfortable with the temperature. This being the only exception to our experience with our flights to Iceland and Norway."
Pros: "I love Icelandair. Quirky and comfortable"
Pros: "Getting to the airport via train was very easy. Airport was large and had a lot of accommodations. Flight was smooth and quick. Entertainment options were plentiful."
Cons: "The boarding process was somewhat confusing. We had trouble finding the bag drop and there were not many employees around to ask. Getting on the bus to get to the plane was very crowded. The headphone jack in my husband's seat did not work so we shared earbuds through my jack."
Pros: "Enjoyed entertainment options"
Pros: "The crew was very profesional . Our fly was safe and on time."
Cons: "Maybe variety of good movie could be better ."
Pros: "Crew was very professional. USB port to charge your phone or tablet. Nice selection of music from many different eras."
Cons: "No maps on the screen in front of me. Not the best selection of comedy TV shows. No veggie option for Vegans."
Cons: "The airplane is to small inside, very limited space."
Cons: "No comments"
Pros: "Seat was very uncomfortable, crew was very busy and unprofessional, had to ask for a cup of tea 5 times never had it. Will never ever use LOT again."

Cons: "USB and power outlet were unable to charge my kindle.... what is the purpose of these if they dont work? Fix them please!"
Cons: "2hrs delay. Family members did not sit together."
Cons: "The temperature in row 8 was incredibly warm, it was making us and our little kids quite uncomfortable and made it hard to fall and stay asleep! Interesting enough the back of the plane felt nice and cool."
Cons: "After purchasing two tickets we had to sit in different places on the plane, one is all the way in the front, other all the way in the back"
Cons: "Have the plane on time"
Cons: "I was traveling with 2 little kids. Plane was delayed but it happens. However crew and airport staff completely ignored requests for help. It started when they directed everyone to 3 flights of stairs, including people with strollers. It became worse after that."
Pros: "The crew was friendly and caring"
Cons: "Better food"
Cons: "They lost my checked bag"
Pros: "The plane was on time, friendly crew, food was pretty good as well"
Cons: "The 787 is a very good plane, but I could do without the footrest underneath the seat; it just got in the way."
Cons: "They lost my baggage"
Pros: "Both flights I was on were somewhat empty, so I had an open seat next to me. Despite some delays taking off, the arrival was early. Good entertainment selection; personal TV screens and free headphones."
Cons: "Food options were limited and kind of gross, but no one expects fantastic food on airplanes."
Pros: "The flight was fantastic! LOT is ROCK! Thanks much!"
Pros: "Crew was very good. Plenty of food, and they came around often with drinks and water."
Pros: "Nice new plane. Desert was some sort of raspberry cheesecake which was great."

Cons: "There was nothing I did not like."
Cons: "No wifi"
Pros: "Most of the crew was very pleasant and helpful. Food was decent, but much better on the return trip out of Poland. Thank YOU."
Cons: "The toilet lids need to be fixed so that they don't keep hitting you in the back. They do not stay up. Other passengers were talking about the same thing."
Pros: "Very timely and organized."
Cons: "We did have to sit on the tarmac for about 1/2 hour upon arrival in Chicago."
Cons: "Departure was delayed. Got held on ground at Chicago. Baggage was very late to arrive"
Pros: "The aircraft in general was newer and all the screens were working and clear."
Cons: "The lowest volume was almost too loud for comfort on the entertainment system for headphones. The seat has no cushion left."
Pros: "Flowers in the bathrooms."
Cons: "Unhelpful crew, bad food, no complimentary wine."
Pros: "My screen froze and crew reset it. Very friendly and professional crew. Best airline food ever!"
Pros: "Also like this crew. Great job of hiring good people."

Pros: "New airplains"
Cons: "Strict rules about hand baggage"
Pros: "The crew members were very nice!"
Cons: "had to delay the plane to board us due to the first plane being late, spent hours in the airport. After almost 40 min looking for my luggage, I found out was still in Poland"
Cons: "no Wi-Fi..."
Cons: "The worst crew I've ever seen"
Pros: "Good question! Not much. The Crew were very nice and professional."
Cons: "The airplane is uncomfortable, too tight. During such a long flight and an uncomfortable plane, free alcohol should be served to make the experience more bearable."
Pros: "Crew helpful and nice. Plane clean."
Cons: "Flight late. No information given as to when it would leave, etc. Food poor. TV flight monitors didn't work Took one hour to get luggage at O' Hare English language speakers couldn't be understood"
Pros: "New plane"
Pros: "Bardzo lubie ten samolot prowadzony przez polskich pilotow tak sie fajnie leci normalnie super aby bylo tak dalej zawsze bede latal z wami Marek pozdrawiam zArizony"
Pros: "The crew was polite and friendly. They refilled my water bottle."
Cons: "The temperature was way too hot at times (economy class), and I don't get hot easily. One bathroom ran out of toilet paper. The entertainment system stopped working about 45 minutes prior to landing, and no effort was made to restore it, nor communication about what had happened and that it wouldn't be restored. No information was given about the meal choices via speakers, so I did not have time to consider the best option. No information was given about whether there would be a second meal or just a snack (e.g. 6 pretzels), so I had just eaten a carry-on snack when they brought the second meal. The pilot information speaker volume was set to be at maximum. Since even the lowest headset volume was too loud for my ears, it hurt and gave me a fright when my movie got interrupted so loudly."
Pros: "I liked their 787 Dreamliner and their excellent service. The pilot did an excellent landing."
Cons: "No complaints"
Pros: "New airplane, good service and in-flight entertainment"
Cons: "No flexibility on upgrade price, even when no one is buying..."
