Disorganized and horribly untransparent. The flight left the airport more than an hour after we were supposed to, but we were given no updates. Instead, we stood in a hot tunnel for an hour, then in a hot shuttle, and then sat on the plane.

We were not told we would have to land the air craft in Canada to refuel until we were taking off. This caused us to miss our connecting flight in Iceland and turned what should have been a 1 hour layover into a 24+ hour nightmare. Now, our return flight has been indefinitely delayed and we do not know when we can get home or how.

The cabin crew were pretty good. That's about all that was good.

I paid almost $400 for upgraded seats. When I got to the airport-- no seats-- both ways!! i didn't even have regular seat assignments. I had to choose from the last few seats available. The ticket agent, the gate agent and the cabin crew all did nothing to make up for the fact that their system screwed up and stuck me in a cramped coach seat in the back of the plane for 11 hours-- TWICE! Beyond that, KLM must have one of the oldest fleets in the sky. Both ways LAX->AMS->LAX, I was on a 30-35 year old 747 with no wifi, no power and a ten-year-old entertainment system. Never again.

787 is a great airplane. The 3-3-3 seat configuration leaves enough seat width to be just comfortable in coach.

Good 6.3

Excellent experience with the cabin crew.

Seats on the 777 were too narrow. This 777 had a 3-4-3 seating arraignment, it would have been better with a 3-3-3, similar to a 787 configuration. With the current layout, even with an aisle seat, I was sitting in the aisle. And I am not a large person! The flight was full, so use the 787 and two daily non-stops. For a twelve hour flight, the food was only Okay, could have been better and with a better selection. Meal timing was poor.

I originally booked a straight flight from KEF to SFO 2 months in advance and all of a sudden WOW sent me an email saying that they changed my flight to a different one with 6 hour lay-over in LAX due to overbooking. And the email notice was sent < 24 hours before the actual departure. So if I didn’t check in online, I would never find out before coming to the airport. When called to inquire more info and request to change to a different flight that would work better for my schedule than the one WOW automatically decided to switch me to, the representative was not very helpful and giving push back. I had to talk to a manager... Long story short, the flight itself, the seats, and attendant crew were all fine, but the booking/scheduling is a bit of uncertainty (like they can change flight on you whenever and to whatever they want).

the flight was great! it was comfortable! good entertainment!

The check in process. Once you check in at the gate, you have to board a bus to go to the plane. I sat on a bus breathing in exhaust fumes for 20 minutes in the cold, rainy, windy weather. I also think they should offer a small complimentary snack! all the food must be purchased!

Excellent 9.2

A great atmosphere — friendly, welcoming. The free movies were especially helpful on a long trip (bring your own headphones).

The seats were less comfortable than some other airlines. I'm short (5'3") and the way they hinged when you recline didn't work for me. Also, SOME kind of free snack — peanuts? a cookie? — would be appreciated. But in general, a very good experience.

Mediocre 3.6

Again, there was no jet bridge to board the plane in Reykjavik. When we arrived in New York, it took 1.5 hours for our bags to arrive on the baggage carousel. That is an absurd amount of time to wait for your bags, especially when the crew's bags were unloaded from the plane within 30 minutes of landing.

KEF
JFK
Okay 4.6

Hard to say what I liked as my experience was soured right from the onset

I was surprised by being charged almost $100 to check in my luggage, and over $100 on my return leg. (Yes! I could have looked at their baggage policy, but there was no glaring notification alerting me to this fact when I purchased the ticket, nor when I was checking in online) Then, I was further surprised that you had to pay for food on board. This was a first. I mean, on an international long distance flight? Everything became mediocre after these, and I mentally swore off flying this airline ever again.

Poor communication. Old planes. Late departures and arrivals. And the staff has zero f@;$s to give.

We attempt to get accurate prices, however, prices are not guaranteed.

Here's why:

We’re not the seller.
At KAYAK we don’t set the prices, so it’s not possible for us to guarantee what other companies are selling.

Our service lets you quickly and easily compare results from hundreds of travel sites at once. In this sense, KAYAK is a search engine and we can't guarantee prices we find.

Why aren’t prices accurate 100% of the time?
Prices on airline seats, hotel rooms and car rentals can change frequently. Several people may also be trying to buy the same travel option simultaneously. As a result, you may find, on occasion, that certain prices are no longer available.
