Cons: "The flight was late( not their fault) and there were several technical difficulties with the A/C and entertainment system"

Pros: "Crew were wonderful when I was nauseous from turbulence"
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"

Cons: "Lots of flight schedules changes. Missed connecting flight as a result. No time left to deal with customs and baggage."
Pros: "Pilot was great— we don’t thank them enough for a smooth and safe arrival. Plane was great. Ammenities were given (such as ear plugs etc)"
Cons: "Crew members are a bit bland and lack customer service, but I noticed that as a whole in Australia (slow service/not really interactive or communicative & very quick to make comments and leave) not sure if they just hate Americans based on the media or what. One crew member cut in line at the restroom when there was 3 of us waiting to go. Another told me my husband couldn’t receive his meal because he was napping and then he quickly walked away— Yet i received mine on the flight coming to Australia when my husband asked for me? Sanitation between flights should be more strict-my headphones were opened which lead me to believe my pillow wasn’t changed either, since one had a case and one didn’t."
Pros: "Lots of leg room, even in economy."
Cons: "Entertainment choices were a bit sparse."
Pros: "Fast boarding, not a crowded flight, ahead of schedule."
Cons: "Paid extra for my check in bag."

Pros: "Entertainment Meal service and quality"
Pros: "The selection of entertainment"
Cons: "My seats headphone connection did not work. I had to hold it and wiggle it around if I wanted to listen to anything."
Cons: "the food selection did not meet my diet restrictions. Found it hard to avoid due to hunger over the duration"
Cons: "Flight was an hour and a half late boarding, sat on the tarmac for 45 minutes, and there was no offer of complimentary beverages. Very barebones level of service."

Cons: "Seat were very uncomfortable.. hard, not enough leg room and there was no way to sleep comfortably with the head rest that is set up so you can rest your head on it,but its awkward and hard an in the way..."
Pros: "The movie selections and comfortable headsets made it possible to watch three movies uninterrupted. The food selections were well prepared. Flight attendants were helpful and efficient."
Cons: "Boarding is always a bit of chaos when our seats are right in the back. People further up insist on boarding early and block the aisles in the process. Multiple levels of passport control and baggage checkout are chaotic, but that's for most all flights coming into USA? VIrgin/Delta handled it well enough. By the time we got through passport control in Boston ur bags were waiting and we had no problems at all."
Pros: "The planes are really cool and seats were very comfortable. The part about phone/tablet holder in front of passenger is awesome. Crew was friendly"
Cons: "Vegetarian food selection could be better, need more content in movie selection"
Pros: "Very comfortable and spacious seats, good air circulation and friendly crew."
Cons: "Food and wine selections were limited and only mediocre. We flew economy plus."
Pros: "nice new seats"
Cons: "The entre food top was torn, apparently opened before I got it, also there was no salad dressing. ATTN RICHARD BRANSON: Are you concerned for our environment? The head stewardess would not refill my sports water bottle after I asked her nicely, instead she poured water into a cup which she threw away, wasting plastic unnecessarily. I told her I did not like wasting plastic and she appeared to not enjoy what I had to say. This was the same lady who handed me my dinner. Rest of crew was great."
Pros: "comfort, entertainment, food"
Pros: "Great direct flight. Quit on the plane. Plenty of time to rest and sleep"
Pros: "There are lots of relatively new movies to choose from."
Cons: "The complimentary headset breaks easily. Tray table was broken and they can't fix it. Very small bathrooms, knees almost touch the door when sitting down. Food selection for dinner ran out quickly, resulting in only 2 choices and one is hot spicy, so basically only one choice. All beverages are given out in small cups, even water is given out in small cups increments (finish in one gulp), they don't even give out small bottles of water. No complimentary packet (eye shades, socks etc.) , not even a barf bag for collecting trash."
Cons: "Entertainment system was good, and I felt that you appeared to have more leg room in economy than other airlines."
Pros: "Plenty of leg room Open area for self-serve snacks and non-alcoholic drinks Food was very good Super friendly attendants"
Pros: "The crew was great with updates. Checking in was a bit confusing though as not all the crew knew what was up. It was a very crowded day so it was bound to be a bit rough. Of my last four flights to London Virgin Atlantic was the best!"
Cons: "Heathrow was a bit confusing and it took a moment to get my bearings. The crew was a bit disorganized but that seemed to get solved quickly."
Cons: "I couldn't rank the food or entertainment as I didn't try the food since it was for purchase only, and there was no entertainment offered."
Pros: "The space you have with your legs is sufficient and the chairs are very comfortable. The food was really nice. I enjoyed the trip, although it was a long one."
Pros: "Flight was on the emptier side, so my boyfriend and I each got our own entire rows to lay down and sleep the entire flight. Which was great, since I had just spent 6h vomiting from bali belly on the previous flight. Liked that they accommodated my GF meal."
Pros: "Every single aspect of this international flight was outstanding from check-in, customer service, the equipment, the meals, in-flight entertainment, etc. There is nothing I could suggest to improve this wonderful experience. Highly recommended!"
Pros: "Top notch for a long economy class flight. Great new plane!"
Pros: "Very attentive and friendly crew! The plane was nice and clean, nice purple tinted lights. They served us plenty of complementary meals, snacks, mints and drinks. The in flight entertainment was the best I've seen yet: movies, tv, music, games, all recent and easy to use. We will definitely fly Virgin Atlantic again!"
Cons: "45 minute delay on runway after landing was very very frustrating."
Pros: "Having partied until 6am for New Years I was grateful for a bed on the flight home! Fantastic crew, planes and overall service!"
Cons: "Wish the arrivals lounge was open for flights arriving in the afternoon."
Pros: "Food was a big improvement and staff very friendly and helpful. Seats not as comfy as some airlines but we're okay."
Pros: "New boarding system of putting your hand luggage on ready was good."
Cons: "You have to pay for food and entertainment even though flight over 4 hours."
Pros: "Courteous flight attendants; good cockpit crew"
Cons: "Delays kept getting longer. On the plane for three hours before takeoff. Seat very uncomfortable -- reclining function didn't work, and no extra space -- and had paid extra for a "comfort" seat."
Cons: "We had to take a shuttle bus from the gate out to the plane, this made boarding very chaotic. The seats were not very comfortable- they needed more padding."
Pros: "Crew was amazing, flight was much more comfortable. Nice selection of drinks."
Cons: "The snack on the flight was brioche with a Cajun spread. The bread was great but the spread was too spicy for my tastes."
Pros: "Friendly crew."
Cons: "Tight plane and late!"
Pros: "Cabin service very good and hot meal was unusually good for economy section (especially the chicken with hollandaise sauce)"
Pros: "Delta employees exceedingly cordial. food poor to moderate, seating space impossibly small but pillow and blanket were provided"

Pros: "Food, comfort, entertainment and treatment by the crew on this flight was spectacular. There was a lot of food, good entertainment and importantly, the seats were wide and comfortable."
Cons: "Very old plane, 767-300. The bathrooms needed a better and more thorough renovation."
Pros: "Getting off the flight was the best!"
Cons: "The persons who barfed and delayed take off was a not great. Cramped"
Pros: "Service was good. Was upgraded for more space."

Pros: "Food and service was nice"
Cons: "Very long route to my final destination"
Pros: "Staff and equipment"
Cons: "Early to arrive but gate not ready so we lost our edge"
Pros: "Short no frills flight that was comfortable with no issues."
Pros: "Great flight!"
Pros: "Excellent service"
Cons: "I think I caught a stomach bug on one of the 3 legs of this route. More likely on last 2, i.e. Mumbai to RDU, as I fell sick almost 10-12 hrs after my last flight meal."
Pros: "Boarding was efficient"
Cons: "My luggage didn't arrive with me"
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."
Pros: "Good Food Nice Flight Attendants"
Pros: "Plenty of entertainment options Frequent meals and snacks Attentive service from flight crew"
Cons: "Boarding process was slower than anticipated One of our bags did not make it"
Pros: "The meal on Air France (a code share with Delta) was excellent."
Cons: "Very bad seat in the exit row. It was very narrow and hardlly reclined at all. there was no place to put your things because there was no seat in front of it. Legroom was very good."
Pros: "Exceptional flight staff -"
Pros: "Cabin crew was wonderful. The food was exceptional."
Cons: "The infotainment system was a little spotty."
Cons: "We were waiting until the airport assigned us a parking slot. Instead of leaving the entertainment system on, they turned it off. We basically spent 1.5h without entertainment system."
Pros: "Delta does a good job of seating and meals and flight offerings"
Cons: "The crew were not customer oriented and seemed like they really weren't interested in their clients. Also we were bounced around between Air France and Delta at the ir port and when trying to check in online even though we booked through Delta."
Cons: "Three hours late leaving Paris. Missed our connecting flight to saint louis. Not much help from Delta."
Pros: "It was my first time to fly Air France. They exceeded my exceptions. The service was great and they made sure we were very comfortable. I will definitely fly Air France again."
Pros: "Great service"
Pros: "movies and food"
Cons: "CDG airport is the worst!!!"
Cons: "Because KAYAK reassigned my flight to airfare.com, I actually flew into JFK. Not my preference and the rebooking process was a nightmare. Very disappointed and I will not be using KAYAK ever again. So stressful."
Pros: "The food has REALLY improved!! GREAT CREW!"
Cons: "Three bags were left at Paris and were delivered to me only after more than 48 hrs - lock of one bag was missing and other bag was in damaged condition"
Pros: "Your flight attendants were very personable and made a very long flight a comfortable as it could possibly be. They were pleasant and always available. Delta is always my go to airline ... especially on long trips as I upgraded to economy comfort and had a few more inches of leg room!"
Pros: "Frequent food offerings throughout the flight."
Cons: "Boarding the plane was not easy. We had to show our passports to a man who quizzed us on where we were coming from, where we were going, and asking questions about our luggage. After that we had to go through another security point and scan our boarding passes, but most people could not get through with our boarding passes, so we had to get in another line to show our passes to our agent. It was very stressful since we were running late since the border control line was so long! While it was stressful, I am glad that they were careful regarding the security,"
Pros: "Loved it all. That's good advice above :)"
Cons: "It was a blast!"
Pros: "The Airbus A330 business class seating was more spacious and comfortable than the Boeing 767 I flew to Paris from ATL."
Cons: "No opportunity for seat selection. Seat didn't recline, no blankets available so whatever part I couldn't cover with my jacket was cold from floor up (so no ability to control source), so no sleep, bordering on hypothermia. Seatmate was huge and continuously overflowing into my space (even though he suffered more than i did). Will endeavor NEVER to fly any flight involving Delta again."
Pros: "Everything was great! It is however a mystery why the attendants find it hard to smile once in a while. They were all attentive which is more important than serving with a smile."
Pros: "Fast boarding, crew, entertainment."
Cons: "Not enough lavatories, space is crazy small and the time should be changes. Arriving at 8am after spending half day awake is crazy. Unless you sleep the entire flight wI think no food no restroom."
Pros: "Only thing I liked was the time, took off on time."
Cons: "Some flight attendants were in worse mood, they don't even smile. Communication was poor, and they did not even offer me a meal. I was ignored although I paid for the meal. This was very disappointing. Next time might consider, Lufthansa or any other airlines."
Cons: "All good"
Pros: "Food in first class was quite good. Flight was smooth, and arrived early."
Cons: "The boarding agents lost control of the crowd form the get go. The first class cabin crew on our side of the plane was inattentive, though it appeared on the other half of the plane the crew was very attentive. This is one of the poorer first class seats in the industry. The "lie flat" seat is just that, a lie. It is pitched at an angle, though not as steep as some. Foot cubby is narrow and constrictive, bordering on claustrophobic."
Pros: "Beverage choices (apéritifs, wines, etc.) were decent in coach. Plane was clean. Entertainment system was very good. Boarding was organized."
Cons: "Seat width in coach was terrible. Had a heavier person next to me and I was crowded out in my seat."
Pros: "Great crew and service. Drink were served all the time. Everyone was extra nice"
Pros: "Decent food and drink. Flight attendants were very nice, although not quite as excellent as on the other Air France flights which I had on this trip"
Cons: "The seat is angled when fully reclined so there's a feeling that you'll slide off the seat, making it difficult to find a good position to sleep. Video screen seemed quite large. Headphones were noise canceling and worked well"
Pros: "Everything was great"
Cons: "Lost luggage,, will be delivered to our house"
Pros: "Flight was on time, food was fairly good, even on economy class."
Cons: "Probably not under Delta's control, but the customs at Seatac is extremely disorganized. The contrast between CDG (Paris), which was very good, and SEA (Seattle), which was very chaotic, was quite large."
Pros: "Great crew,seating was more comfortable than the other legs of our trip, very attentive cabin service."
Pros: "The agents at the gate were very efficient and the flight crew was attentive and pleasant."
Cons: "My seat area was not clean. The arm rest and the tray area had food? on it."
Cons: "Only the price and boarding was different for this Air France run Delta flight. All the seats (3&3), space and service were the same throughout this plane."
Pros: "Good flight, comfortable; good food."
Cons: "Entertainment system kept failing"
Pros: "Overall a nice and good flight"
Cons: "Just a detail, my “head holder” (not too sure how it is called) would not hold in position. Also, staff was a bit slow to come after being called, I had to go and ask for water by myself at some point since no one was coming after 15minites of waiting..."
Pros: "I was sorted on Row 3 and the drapes kept hitting the back of my head."
Cons: "Move the drapes a few more inches back."
Pros: "Good amount of space on the plane, lots of movies to watch, good food and drink."
Pros: "the crew was wonderful, we got a nice Wrap and water, wine or coffee for free, not all airlines serve it anymore, we were on time and I got whatsapp message with updates of the flight"
Pros: "Crew was great, very responsive and hospitable!"
Cons: "more lunch choices, especially choices without dairy products."
Pros: "Crew was nice and pleasant"
Cons: "Flight very late"
Pros: "Crew was fantastic, seats and entertainment was great. Very good food choices."
Cons: "Everything was very good."
Cons: "This was just a short commuter flight from Lyon to Amsterdam for connection."
Pros: "My seat"
Cons: "My suitcase wasn’t in the plane. 8 hours in the plane and no one offered us water. We had to look for flight attendant. Entertainment wasn’t great not too many choices and quality of screens was poor"
Cons: "They check for everything in the counter as if it was a low cost airline. If you go a kilo more over your baggage allowance you have to pay 100 eur. And for your cabin luggage you only have 12 kg that they check you twice and they have security staff at the airport specifically check in this."
Pros: "Crew was pleasant but not attentive to detail. Bypassed is completely for snack and drink towards end of 9 hour flight!"
Cons: "Pay attention to passengers."
Pros: "Nice seats. Only seats with a row of 2, which is what I wanted,"
Pros: "the crew was nice"
Cons: "Seat confort on long flights, leg rooms,"
Cons: "The flight was cancelled and had to be rerouted on United Airlines."
Pros: "Time was excellent even considering a connection delay they had. Very polite crew members. Good entertainment options."
Cons: "Cabin was crowded. Leg room was scarce, short seating space. Almost no room for sleeping if you're not a frequent economy traveler."
Cons: "At the check in they made me pay 50€ for my luggage. This is really upsetting because from Houston to Venice they didn't make me pay. Either the website wasn't transparent or the lady at the desk made a mistake. Very upsetting, one luggage should be included."
Pros: "The flight started with a visit in the recently renovated KLM crown lounge in Amsterdam airport. I liked the various seating options and of course the upstairs bar. The service on board was attentive and efficient, the food options I really liked (especially the Chinese dish) but also the little touches like the nuts & gouda cheese which were served in small porcelain bowls. The seat itself was very comfortable when sitting and the structure gives a lot of privacy. However for couples or friends travelling it's a bit cumbersome to have a conversation even when sitting in seats next to each other. Overall my expectations were fulfilled."
Cons: "This seat is not ideal for sleeping for taller persons (I'm 185cm tall) as the space to put the feet is very narrow and it's uncomfortable when lying on the back (as one cannot put them in the natural resting position). Cabin temperature could have been a bit lower for my taste. Crew needs better training with regards to transfer procedure in Chengdu."
Pros: "The constant smile conferred by flight attendants through the entire flight."
Cons: "The boarding was a bit disorderly. Lanes for zones 3 and 4 were not clearly indicated."
Pros: "Last year I flew Lufthansa which was my worst experience flying ever. I thought the new standard was so low I would never fly to Europe again. I had heard KLM was good but I felt this was as good as could be expected actually much better. The food was even good."
Cons: "I would have to dream something up."
Pros: "Friendly crew! More legroom, good entertainment and food was great! Smooth landings pretty much on time."
Cons: "Boarding could be better"
Pros: "Nothing to mention"
Cons: "Crew was rude when I asked if there was a vegetarian option for the snack. I did request special meals for the trip. Even if they did not have a vegetarian option, they don't need to be rude!! Boarding was ridiculous. we were supposed to form a line and wait. Would have been a lot better if they boarded by seat numbers. Also they made me check in my fairly small and light carry on bag resulting in its contents arriving broken!"
Pros: "Employees were very friendly"
Cons: "The seats were very small"
Pros: "Staff very pleasant"
Cons: "Evening snack was not the greatest breakfast was pretty food"
Pros: "Flying with KLM is a pleasure"
Pros: "The crew was efficient. Flight left on time. Food and wine served."
Cons: "No entertainment."
Pros: "Crew was great, very nice"
Cons: "Not enough legroom"
Pros: "Friendly crew."
Cons: "So many people on a 747!!"
Pros: "Easy flight; loved the crew and their friendly customer service. Great food, kept everyone hydrated and fed."
Cons: "The movie options, as well as music and TV options were limited. There were no electrical outlets."
Pros: "Good entertainment options. Nice flight attendants"
Cons: "It would be helpful for short people to be able to adjust the head rest lower on the seat. More recent released movies would be helpful. More leg room. Not charging more money to choose seats."
Pros: "We were fed a nice pasta meal and offered drinks twice. They also gave a muffin for desert. The flight attendants were very nice and attentive with cheerful smiles. I wish every airline had service this good!"
Cons: "The movie selection did not seem extremely varied."
Cons: "Our two hour connection in Paris became 30 minutes because Air France was late in leaving Washington. So our luggage didn't make to to KLM to Amsterdam. My poor rating was because the luggage handling was really poor. Lots of flights from Paris to Amsterdam (almost hourly), but my bag showed up 12 hours later. My wife's bag took 36 hours. And yes, we checked in together. There were lots of confusing messages"
Cons: "Our total flight time was about 17 hours - MAD- AMS-LAX. My husband and I both have an internationally approved carry on luggages with us. When we checked in - they asked us to both check in our carry on luggage. The reason why is because they said they don’t think they have enough space for our carry ons. I told the crew member checking us in that other people that was checking in with the same hand carry size luggage with us had no problems taking it with them. For being about to be on a 17 HOUR FLIGHT we should be ALLOWED to have our carry ons with us! We take carry ons for that reason! I had to argue and prove my case to the crew member to atleast keep 1 carry on with us. I thought that was an UNACCEPTABLE reason for us to check in a carry on luggage when we had a 17 hour travel time ahead of us. Not a happy costumer here."
Pros: "Left ontime and service was excellent."
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."
Cons: "Delay can occur sometimes but it wiuld be better to be explained its reason and the estimated time for boarding. The customer service at CDG airport was the worst ever and all people standing boarding desk were useless without any mind what they are doing."
Pros: "Food was just fine, movie selection very good"
Cons: "Uncomfortable seat cushions, lights were truned on too early (1.5 hours before flight landed)"
Cons: "Super delayed. Could have fixed the issue BEFORE we were sitting on tha plane for TWO hours"
Cons: "Missing wheel chairs swrvice lounge far away no food option just lame klm tipique"
Pros: "The food service was good and the flight attendants were friendly."
Cons: "The plane was very uncomfortable. The seats were small, you felt on top of the person next to you, and there was no leg room. I am a pretty small person- I can't image how uncomfortable all of the taller passengers must have been."
Cons: "Bag was lost"
Cons: "KLM crews look unhappy with their work. Everything they do is a favor not duty."
Pros: "Catering is ok"
Cons: "Seats comfort really old school"
Pros: "Everything was good. The crew was very friendly and attentive. The plane was comfortable, with great entertainment on the personal screens. The food was delicious. Flight was on time and actually arrived early, but then we had to wait for a gate (not the airline's fault)."
Cons: "No complaints at all."
Pros: "Crew was friendly, and the food was better than the usual KLM fare."
Cons: "The "new" seats were hard and uncomfortable. Avoid any kinds of seats near the bathroom in a configuration with 3 abreast next to the windows. The "aisle" seat is essentially a "waiting area" for the rest room."
Pros: "The constant supply of food that was offered to you. The crew was nice and always helpful."
Cons: "The process of boarding in Amsterdam was not organized and felt more stressful than it needed to be."
Pros: "Fortunately, the plane was not full, so people could spread out a bit to create extra room. The food was really good! (surprisingly)."
Cons: "KLM's new configuration for this type of plane made the seats even narrower than before. While leg room was reasonable, the 3 abreast seating meant a lot of discomfort, especially in the row right in front of the restroom."
Pros: "Same as above"
Pros: "It was a short flight so it was O.K."
Cons: "Boarding was odd. Go to airport early and counters were not open, did on line check in so was able to avoid the self check in at airport. Also self check in luggage seems confusing with no ground crew to help. It didn't affect me but lots of confused passenger."
Cons: "As with most other airlines, the seats are uncomfortable and packed together, and we're trained to think that it's ok, it's normal... No food is provided unless you buy it, so we brought our own which is better anyway. The crew is nice. There are movies and music, but nothing interactive. Soft drinks are given in a 4 or 6 ounce cup, very small."
Pros: "Comfortable seats, pillows and blanket available. Boarding was quick. Only ordered yogurt for food, but would definitely order meal items in the future. Great entertainment center with lots of choices helped pass the time."
Cons: "Airport at Keykjavik is confusing and chaotic."
Pros: "We arrived safely"
Cons: "Plan to pay extra for limited food service,baggage, and transportation to and from the city. I spent an extra 176 Euro for two non oversized bags, Not a lot of options for gluten-free choices."
Pros: "Crew was helpful and professional."
Cons: "Not enough leg and seat space and I am a small person at 5 ft tall and 105 lbs. I was subjected to an extensive security search which took a great deal of time. Iceland Air did hold the plane for me and were professional in their work."
Pros: "The drinks they offer"
Pros: "I love being able to get in and out of security much easier than other airlines. Love Iceland air. Just need to be prepared to bring food to eat"
Pros: "Reasonable amount of leg room."
Cons: "Late aircraft arrival, 1:05 late departure, very crowded boarding area."
Pros: "-Price -Service -The technology of the aircraft. -How easy it was to do the web-check in (and the overall website)"
Cons: "Didn't like that you had to pay for food on long/overnight flights."
Pros: "Okay entertainment. Good baguettes."
Cons: "No leg room. Terrible hamburgers."
Cons: "We shouldn't have to pay for food on a flight that long."
Pros: "- We arrived safely. - Crew was cordial, polite and professional."
Cons: "- insufficient legroom for taller people. - company charges extra for exit row seats. - no complimentary food, except for children under 12. - some trash (plastic bottles) left under seats from previous flight."
Pros: "It was fine."
Cons: "Cannot understand the commander when he gives instructions in English for both flight"
Pros: "Individual TVs"
Cons: "Delayed boarding. Seat in last row which is loud and you get bumped every five seconds"
Pros: "Entertainment it was a 7:30 hour flight and there was only snacks for purchase. The ticket was not cheap."
Cons: "The boarding was complicated. Full of people and nowhere to sit. Got separated from family."
Pros: "I have flown with Iceland Air two times now and each time has been less then satisfactory. The first time they cancelled my flight and booked me with someone else. The next time they were so delayed on each leg I has to sprint through the airport to make my connections each of which were over 2 hour layovers. And to top it off I had my checked bag lost."
Pros: "The flight was generally good. I like the fact that Icelandair aircraft have USB ports that allow passengers to keep their electronic devices charged. The good that we purchased was not great, but adequate."
Cons: "The process of getting us on the plane was terrible. Even the dispatcher didn't seem to know whether we would leave from Gate 72 or Gate 73. There was virtually no communication, and what there was was unintelligible. The waiting passengers had to rely on themselves to figure out what was going on."
Pros: "The Reykjavik airport is a mess with constriction. It took over an hour to get our bags and most waited longer."

Pros: "Boarding back to front Movie entertainment Service from staff"
Cons: "Huge check-in wait even with arrrival 2+ hours before departure"

Cons: "Layover times are very short and other flights arriving and departing at same time delay the time flights actually leave."
Pros: "Inflight entertainment."
Cons: "We bought the tickets together, but because we bought them on Kayak and not from IcelandAir, we were not seated together. Very frustrating on a very full seven hour flight. We also were not given the opportunity to upgrade because we hooked with kayak. I will not use kayak again."
Pros: "We got to the airport more than 3 hours early and couldn't check in until the counter opened and then ended up standing in a very long line."
Cons: "We like that security was at the gate and was very quick to get through."

Pros: "The check in at CDG was a cluster, but other than that the flight attendants and crew were really nice."
Pros: "Superb employees from the moment of contact on the phone."
Cons: "Not enough choices of music or movies. Poor quantity, quality, variety of food."
Pros: "Plane was clean, crew friendly and helpful, built-in touch screen entertainment was excellent. Even the sandwiches were good!"
Cons: "We only had an 80-minute stop before our connection and it was hard to get through the passport review in that amount of time, since our plane left Paris late."
Cons: "everything else long lines because few employees are put to work"
Cons: "This flight was fine. The flight from Denver to London however was delayed because of a problem with the plane. Forcing us to be stranded in the Iceland airport all day and not arriving in London until 10pm. We missed two pre paid tours in London because of the delay and the only thing we were offered was a meal voucher which we didn't even use. Very disappointing. And on top of it, the person at the Denver airport rearranging our tickets was rude and not helpful. I had to demand that she try harder to keep my seat and that of my niece who is a minor together so she didn't have to fly alone. Overall disappointed."
Pros: "Good service. Nice waiting area. Had gate change and it was not well communicated. Some people almost missed their flight."
Cons: "Food should be included on international flights. Maybe a snack for shorter flights."
Cons: "Lost luggage (for the second time on the way back!)"
Pros: "Flight was on time leaving - to the point where I was surprised that boarding was starting an hour rather than a half hour before the scheduled departure, and I had forgotten to send out my duty free tax forms so security let me run back out, and I was being paged while going through security a second time and ran to my gate with minutes to spare."
Cons: "having to pay for the meals. It was a stop over flight which takes added time. Next time I will skip Reykjavik and fly direct no matter the cost."
Pros: "the service"
Pros: "Staff was friendly and attentive. Blankets and pillows for everyone, Entertainment system was well equipped."
Cons: "There were no snacks offered."
Pros: "Simple no frills. Flight was on time no long waiting line . Offers drinks"
Cons: "Not a large selection of food"
Pros: "Excellent pilot and friendly staff"
Cons: "Not even a snack offered, seats unconfortable"
Pros: "Super civilized experience!! Leg room, courteous, helpful, pleasant.... Good screens for films, tv etc.... Good food served on board... They don't charge for luggage, super helpful at the check in desk at the airport. Very courteous and helpful. One of the best airlines I've experience...."
Pros: "The plane was new looking and clean. Price of ticket was cheapest around. Food I had to purchase was good tasting."
Cons: "* Lack of announcements as to what was happening: ticketing, ticket lines, boarding, meals, etc. Rude counter and gate employees. Poor coordination and crowd control/line control. * Cramped seating...though the seats looked brand-new. * Small monitors with limited selection compared to other airlines. * Only food or drink included in ticket was a small bottle of water. All else, pay up. This looks like an airline that is trying to enter market and gain share by offering low prices but is not up to the challenge of giving adequate service, particularly at ticketing, check-in and at gate when they succeed in luring passengers in with the low price. I am not likely to fly Icelandair again unless I am desperate for low priced ticket, which is not often the case, thank goodness."
Pros: "The seats did not recline."
Pros: "The great movie selection"
Cons: "The entertainment interface malfunctioned. It was difficult to select items on the screen."
Cons: "My flight was cancelled after being delayed 4 hours. I had to spend the night at a hotel airport and wasted an entire day. There were no icelandair staff anywhere to help us. I will never fly icelandair again"
Pros: "Crew were great, movie/TV selection was small but pretty good, plane itself was relatively new and fine. Gave both pillows and blankets to all passengers."
Cons: "Didn't know that food was not going to be served (though my fault for not really checking into it beforehand)."
Pros: "Friendly, helpful crew. Boarding was quick and painless."
Cons: "No included meals/drinks for international flight. Tight connections don't leave you with many options to eat before a long flight. Food is very expensive, too."
Pros: "Everything went smoothly and the crew was extremely nice. Every person I interacted with from the front counter to the flight crew was very pleasant and helpful."
Pros: "We got to London on time."
Cons: "Asked me to check luggage when there was plenty of room on board... Brand new, two week old, luggage is now broken."
Cons: "Actually not bad - had to wait a few min at terminal 5 for gate to be free - but pretty good overall"
Pros: "The sit"
Cons: "Initial delay and then take off delay because slot time had not been updated. Our family missed connections. Disaster follow up in terminal!!! So far far we have been over six hours from check in and are still not through immigration. This for an hour flight."
Cons: "Gate agent refused to let me carry on a suitcase that I have carried on dozens of flights (this specific suitcase) and I understand overhead limitations (I have more than 4 million air miles just between United and American Airlines). This was an A320 and I was about #10 getting on the flight. Space was not an issue. This added an hour to a 25 hour day to wait for luggage at LAX. And BA gives the agents an edge in that their test fixture has rounded corners to that a 22 inch suitcase that has hard square edges at the bottom (or wheels that make it square) won't fit in it. So the agent just points that it doesn't fit and you have to check. I was not happy from Paris to London."
Cons: "Flight was canceled forcing us to spend an extra night in Paris. British Airways was extremely unorganized in dealing with an 11 hour delay. I will not fly BA ever again."
Cons: "No self service kiosks to check in. Rude staff. Terrible flight experience."
Pros: "I got free juice and a snack, almost unheard of nowadays!"
Cons: "I don't know what happened. Check-in took almost an hour. Usually it only takes 10 or 15 minutes. I am glad that I got to the airport 2 hours a head of time."
Pros: "Nice service. On time."
Cons: "Buses at each airport to get plane. Multiple waits in customs lines when travelling within Europe."
Cons: "no free dinks, including paid coffee, tea... I think it's ok. to pay for drinks, but not regular coffee, tea and water even it's short flight"
Pros: "Effortless flight from CDG to LHR before returning home to New York. Had the opportunity to spend a night in London to visit a couple friends and some of my favorite shops in town. BA kept my checked bag so I didn’t have to lug a suitcase around for my 19 hour layover."
Cons: "The ticket agents in CDG wasn’t the friendliest from such a well respected brand but zero complaints considering the deal I got to spend a week in Paris!"
Pros: "The ground crew was good"
Cons: "They loss my bag"
Pros: "Check-in was very easy and actually quiet compared to the rest of the airport."
Cons: "When we walked into the airport (upper floor), I didn't see any signs directing me to British Airways. We walked a long ways and finally asked someone who said we must go downstairs. More signs would help."
Pros: "The plane was new and the seats were gorgeous!"
Cons: "No snacks were provided."
Pros: "The staff very friendly and helpful"
Cons: "We missed two flights,made it on the third trip.when trying to get some help and information I felt like they were blowing us off ( employees at the airport in Paris) not so much British Airways.The first time we missed the flight it was because we were sent to the wrong gate,and we tried to get information we were told to sit down our plane would be next.We then had to start the process all over again going thru check in and security, proses was so slow we missed the second flight,then I had to go thru the process anion retrieving our bags,going thru check in and security the third time,by the time I got to the gate they were boarding. It was a nightmare and I got to feeling we would never get out of Paris.Not so sure I would want to go to Paris Airport again.? If I would use BA."
Pros: "They closed boarding early"
Pros: "I tried to POSTPONE my Flight and they would charge me over $350.00 That was VERY BAD"
Pros: "the crew were friendly and efficient"
Cons: "old plane uncomfortably seats no personal IFE"
Pros: "Convenience, cleanliness, and prompt."
Cons: "Seat selection only 24 hours ahead."
Pros: "Seat with greatly appreciated leg room by exit door for which I paid a premium of over $100."
Cons: "Seat by exit door which was uncomfortably cool/cold due to the imperfect seal around the door."
Pros: "The flight and in flight service was excellent"
Cons: "the rebooking of this flight was terrible, our seats were re booked from British Airways to American Airlines but not ticketed correctly by BA. I had to call airfare.com support four time with no resolution to only end up running from BA back to AA ticket counters only to be met with multiple BA agents that did not take the time to just lookup our flight info correctly. It took multiple time to finally have a BA ticket agent finally correct the issue. Please dont use Airfare.com their support is the worst."
Pros: "Really the only thing I've found that is good your staff on the flight it's self. The on board crew are very good. Everthing else pretty much makes it terrible."
Cons: "First off they quote you rate and you pay. Then you find out that you have to pay more just to request a seat. Complete move motivated by pure greed and manipulating us the consumer. Even more so if you don't go and request your seat 24hrs before the flight they automatically assign you the middle seat so they can go and sell the better window and aisle seats. This pretty much makes me want to never use your greedy airline again. Also when I was boarding I get stopped and told my carry on was to large. THE VERY SAME ONE I BROUGHT WITH ME. Why is it too big now? They really had no answer other than they told me I had to check it. The lady was verbally aggressive with me about it. After I was backing down only because I was afraid of losing my flight she then requested a CC saying I had to pay for it. I was literally pulling things out of my bag holding in my hand for my flight. She insisted I had to pay for it. I pointed out that my ticket included 2 bags to begin with and I only used one she said it doesn't matter because its to big for the plane I have to pay. I'm beyond furious now as I'm dropping stuff out of my hands trying to manage everything. I'd like to point out this is just a small gym bag and its a lot smaller than my carry on suite case which I'm frustrated. I'm pretty much pissed off the whole flight to only be more at the end. When the plane lands and I'm getting off I notice every single person has a carry on suite case all of which are much larger than my gym bag. My freaking gym bag fits in the tiny locker at the gym. I HATE BRITISH AIRLINES they only succeed at swindling money from you."
Cons: "The plane was old and did not have personal screens. The selected movies were not my cup of tea. And. The screen was far away, small and not in focus."
Pros: "Upon arrival, crew could not manage to open the door. Had to wait until technicians were able to arrive and open the door from the outside. As a result, an iffy transfer became disturbing."
Cons: "Transfer between BA and AA terminals was chaotic."
Pros: "The flight crew was lovely, everything went off without a hitch."
Cons: "I've never seen such snotty behavior from an airline in my life. The ground crew in the airport BOTH at LAX and at Charles De Gaulle were impolite, rolling their eyes and sighing when I asked them some questions about my transfer from British Airways to Air New Zealand. I was surprised by this, given that British Airways is supposedly a prestigious airline and should have some customer service training. If given a choice, I wouldn't fly with them again."
Pros: "Short flight, on time , no complaints ts"
Pros: "Airplane, food and service"
Cons: "AA from Philadelphia to SD charges 8 USD for a terrible red wine"
Cons: "Is way below par when compared to emirates or any other international airlines"
Pros: "Liked the space between seats , able to stretch and the food was quite good . The crew was very good too"
Cons: "2 hr delay in Paris very poor choice of movies"
Pros: "The entertainment selection was good. They provided a lot of options at no additional cost. Some of the crew was pleasant."
Cons: "In all fairness to British airways this was actually "operated by AA" and their customer service leaves much to be desired. Traffic to get into the airport was the worst I've ever seen. When we finally arrived, Although we checked in prior to arrival, we still had to wait in line for over an hour to check in our bags! We told the agents three times our flight was boarding, however, they were almost nasty and would not expedite us. they finally started to call our flight and we were pulled from the line, even then it was very disorganized how we were processed. We had to run through security and the long terminal and along with others in our flight that had been in line, were the last to board as the flight was delayed waiting for us. One of the worst experiences ever. They really need to do something about their check in process as we were not the only ones subjected to these delays. The plane had technical problems landing and had to be towed in but thank God we made it."
Cons: "There should have been some entertainment on this flight- tv or wifi"
Pros: "The staff was wonderful and went out of there way to make me comfortable"
Pros: "the crew, food and service was wonderful"
Cons: "getting to the connecting flight was absolutely horrendous!"
Pros: "Very fine work of flight attendants in Coach, serving 41C area. Making real connections and obviously thinking of their clients."
Cons: "American Airlines check in services at CDG were inadequate to demand. If a deal is done for British Airways flight coverage, additional check in agents are required."
Cons: "Flight was not through British air. Terrible system of sharing tickets you have. Finnair to AA. Cancelled on the way out and delayed and total incompetence on the way back. Never using you again. I will spread the word."
Pros: "The trip was absolutely amazing. I have no complaints."
Pros: "The flight was fairly comfortable."
Cons: "It was a long flight. Had to return to the terminal after taxi-ing to the runway because someone on the plane had a medical issue. Nothing the airline could have done about that, but it made the flight that much longer..."
Cons: "It's just like all the big people mover airlines. Nothing special. Also I could only check in three hours before the flight. Not sure who sets that policy CDG or BA."
Pros: "In-flight entertaiment"
Pros: "Crew was nice, plane was reassuring :)"
Cons: "The stew said I could get internet by buying it, which I did, got connection long enough for AA to charge my credit card, and no connection ever after, $20..."
Pros: "Our flight was 3 hours late coming & going."
Cons: "We were on an older plane that didn't have individual entertainment options for the customers. That was a bummer."
Pros: "Súper practico, las notificaciones del vuelo, gate y boarding time en el app fueron de mucha ayuda. El precio buenísimo !"
Cons: "No hay nada que no me haya gustado"
Pros: "-Awesome Service -Friedly and helpful crew"
Pros: "But it partner, American Airlines is a disaster,... British service was excellent, the airplane too. I can say exactly the opposite about my flight with american from LAX to Paris...."
Pros: "On Time"
Pros: "The attendants were very helpful. I enjoyed the Scottish cookies and tea. I was a bit upset at being forced to check my bag by the staff in Paris, though. Even though it was partly my fault for being too stupid to pass the test of knowing how to put my suitcase diagonally into the sizing box, I still felt bad about being lied to by the staff who told me that my suitcase was too big and that they would take it from me at the gate if I refused to surrender it there at check-in, even though they could obviously see by how easily it fit into the sizing box that the size was perfectly fine. This treatment made me feel singled out for harassment, as I saw others being allowed to carry on suitcases that were much larger, but in the end I got over it. All other staff were very pleasant to me."
Cons: "At least 6 people from the PHL - Paris flight could not manage to make the connection to Vueling. Personnel at the CDG airport was very unhelpful, and no one seemed to know how to get to get to Terminal 3. We arrived late (not for lack of trying, since 6 separate people had the same problem). We were send left and right, often getting back to the same place. 2 hours should be enough to make any connection. But apparently not at CDG!"
Cons: "Seat assignments kept disappearing It took 45 minutes at check-in to get seat assignments once again for the third time for my flight segments These people shouldn't be allowed to fly planes"
Pros: "The male flight attendant was very pleasant."
Cons: "- there was no effort made to ensure I had a vegetarian meal - one of the flight attendants was very rude and ignored me several times. - I forgot an expensive box of chocolates in the plane inside of a bag. I immediately asked if someone could get it for me - I was told that the bag was found but not the chocolates."
