Cons: "Deplaning takes FOREVER"
Pros: "Information communicated about delays."
Cons: "- more communication (any!) about bag status when landed - flight delay due to too many/too heavy baggage. Long delay was said to be due to making sure our baggage would accompany destination. Upon arrival, bag was left in NYC but this wasn't communicated. No info on bag status at airport or via ema"
Cons: "First class seats were too close together. It was very difficult to get out of you seat into the aisle.

Cons: "I usually don't fly from JFK. The food court was expensive (18 dollars base price from a burger seems a high even for an airport. I don't fly from NY normally - so maybe I need to tune my expectation for the locale, and it may have NOTHING to do with the airline company."

Had to scramble so my 18 year old son was not stranded overnight in a strange place and Delta does not help. Only rebooked a flight itinerary for the next day for a 4 hour flight with connections on a 1 hour direct flight. Spent an hour on line to figure out what to do. #neverdelta"

Pros: "Only 15 minutes late"
Cons: "Like everyone, I dislike the tight seating."
Pros: "I could be wrong, but the seats were very comfortable (for a plane) and I felt my knees weren't as close to the seat in front of me than other airlines. So that's a plus."
Pros: "Comfortable flight, ample leg room, and the chairs were pretty plush. Comfort+ is pretty nice"
Cons: "On my first flight they forgot to turn the wifi on. I have unlim data but obviously can't use while in air; no big though."
Pros: "The customer service was amazing! The amenities made the flight entertaining and enjoyable. The pilot key us informed."
Cons: "Middle seats are physically uncomfortable."
Pros: "The crew had the most amazing attitude. Very friendly. It really makes a big difference. Seemed like the positive attitude was contagious. Thanks to them."
Cons: "The seats were entirely too close. Not enough legroom. Legroom was easily two inches less than typical. I am 6'4" and I could not get my knees to go behind the seat in front of me. I had one knee in the aisle and the other between the two seats in front of me. I know I'm taller than average, but I don't think I'm asking too much. Just want to be able to sit normally."
Pros: "flight attendants were great."
Cons: "not enough leg room and space. The business class should be at the minimum for economy."

Cons: "On this occasion I actually enjoyed it all"
Cons: "Takeoff was delayed approx 4 hours which made me miss my connection and prolonged the whole travel day."
Cons: "I wouldn't rate this flight on a five-star grid--I give it 0.0 stars. Delta's economy seats are so tiny that even a small person like myself finds it agonizing to ride in them for a moderate-length flight. We need aggressive regulation of our airlines to prevent the unconscionable and humiliating way they treat economy passengers. It's not safe, healthy or humane to ask human beings to sit for hours in tiny spaces with very little air (on top of everything else, the plane was mercilessly hot the whole time). Next time I will choose a European carrier--even the discount Euro carriers are better than any US airline."
Pros: "The crew was polite and friendly"
Cons: "My second plane had sooo much moisture coming from the cooling system it looked like the passengers were getting gased and I kept getting wet from water condensation falling on me in a window seat as I tried to sleep from having such an early flight to begin with only to be told it's delayed 3 hrs without explanation."
Pros: "Good seats."
Pros: "Food was OK, ice cream at mid-flight was my favorite thing. I liked the choice of movies. Drinks are also good but why not include pure cranberry juice? It goes great with vodka."
Cons: "Boarding is ridiculous. Everyone who is not some kind of VIP is asked to line up and is treated like cattle. 5-feet tall woman holds above her head a sign with the zone currently boarding. Nobody can hear or see anything. Why not use the big LCD displays at the gate??? In the plane they had to restart the computer system as some TVs were not working and it took longer than they said. Toilets were kind of stinky and I could smell them from my seat on row 26. Blankets are way too thin for the blasting AC."
Pros: "Free drinks in Comfort+"
Pros: "Short flight time"
Cons: "Delayed for 2 hours due flat tire. They should've checked tires before we boarded. Cabinets were almost full. I had a hard time to put my skateboard and backpack in a cabinet. Attendant didn't help out at all! It took over a minute to figure out to fit my stuff in there like Tetris. One passenger was upset that I took his bag out. It was frustrating when attendant didn't help to store my bag."
Cons: "See above description"

Pros: "Good seat, easy on and off, everything went a little ahead of schedule and smooth"

Cons: "Leg room was terrible in economy and food was poor from the USA"
Pros: "fast boarding"
Pros: "Great crew. Great seats"
Cons: "Flight was delayed by half an hour. Mainly due to limited carryon space. During check in we offered to check in carry on luggage, but were told it would be an additional cost! If they would have checked it in that would have saved 15 minutes easily"
Pros: "Food was good and crew were helpful."
Cons: "Seat could have been comfier!"
Pros: "See my earlier remarks"
Pros: "One of the crews interrupted me in the bathroom while I was using the bathroom by banging on the bathroom door saying I had stayed more than 20mins in there and that you guys have time limits to be in the bathroom even when I tried to explain to her from the bathroom that I had constipation, she"
Cons: "She would not listen to me. I had to come out, unfinished, embarrassed and couldn't even wash my hands before going back to my seat. Other than that, every other experience was excellent. Please lecture your crews about constipation and to listen. Thanks."
Cons: "They ran out of vegetarian options so I only could have salad, bread and butter"
Cons: "When purchasing tickets on KAYAK be very careful to notice you often ARE NOT buying the ticket from the airline and any issues you have will be with the reseller and not the airline. KAYAK should be more clear about who the seller is and you should ABSOLUTELY stay away from resellers unless you like to gamble."
Cons: "Delayed boarding for no apparent reason. The plane was sitting on the tarmac for at least 2 hours before scheduled boarding."
Pros: "Food was great!"
Cons: "Quite satisfiedoverall"
Pros: "Food is better than other airlines, keep it up!"

Pros: "staff at airport were friendly, helpful"
Cons: "telephone reps NOT helpful and do not know the airplane seat maps"
Pros: "Very friendly personal, good food and drinks."
Cons: "Delays in Nice led to a narrow window for connection. More than ten people were left behind - doors practically closed in our faces - and Lufthansa was wholly unhelpful in rescheduling flights. Lines to speak with agents were absurd and then attendants had to take breaks instead of resolve issues. There were no solutions offered, only poor communication and an unwillingness to accommodate a significant number of customers who were inconvenienced. Finally, a "random inspection" led to a handful of passengers being surveyed by the German local police. Interestingly, a number of us were Hispanic Americans. The whole experience was extremely negative."
Pros: "Excellent connection arrangements in Munich. Departing gate just steps away from the arriving one!!! German punctuality as well."
Cons: "Too little space between consecutive rows on the plane."
Cons: "It was my bad luck to be near two children whose parents would not keep them quiet and who played games on their screen for nine hours straight, shrieking the entire time. Nor did any of the stewards help or say boo to the parents."
Pros: "Lunch was good."
Cons: "The food was not good."
Cons: "I have not even had this trip because the Lufthansa denied my boarding and canceled and rest of the trip"
Pros: "Lufthan changed aircraft and totally screwed by seat assignment, very bad."
Pros: "Everyone is very very nice!"
Cons: "Luftansa gives up and goes out of business."
Pros: "Due to unforeseen circumstances, I needed assistance with boarding. I attempted to ask the check in agent at the boarding gate and she was extremely rude to me as well as other passengers. The assistant's behavior displayed annoyance and an unwillingness to assist passengers."
Pros: "That was the best airline meal I've ever eaten. It was a lightly curried chicken. Outstanding. Extremely fast boarding. Boarded entire airplane in less than 15 minutes. Nice selection of movies and audio. All of which you could stop, pause, fast forward, and rewind."
Cons: "No reading lights. No attendant call button I could find. Not much air volume. That pesky lack of leg room. Short seat belts."
Cons: "It took over three hours for them to unload our baggage. Completely unacceptable. Terrible coordination and planning with the Dulles baggage handlers."

Cons: "crowded plane unfrindly staff no choice of meals long wait on board"

Cons: "Both bathroom were not working in business class area."
Pros: "Everything works and quick to get to destination."
Cons: "Everything was OK"

Pros: "One crew member was very good but all were not very available or checking on people. I had a seat that I purchased and it was very hard to recline I only found out that it did if fact recline it the last hour to hour and a half of the trip! It was a difficult push back to get it to recline"

Cons: "Flight cancelled"
Pros: "Very personable staff. Food acceptable for airline fare. Ticket price was outstanding."
Cons: "Paid for extra legroom, but very narrow seats not comfortable. Very difficult to sleep. Old plane--could not hear movies and unclear screen. Music sounded OK and choice was good."
Cons: "I ordered Wheel chair for my parents but one of them didn't get it at all. When my parents were checking in for flight they asked the representative about meal selection and she didn't answer their questions properly and because of that my mom didn't get proper Hindu Vegetarian food on flight instead she got Egg omelet which she couldn't eat. She has to eat just fruits. My mother is a diabetic patient and she needs a food every after some time. I never had such a bad experience before with any other airlines."
Pros: "Everything OK"
Pros: "Nice people and good service"
Cons: "Not much"
Pros: "Great service"

Cons: "Terminal 3 Manchester is not worth staying longer then necessary, loud music, crowded....old"

I just filed a claim and got rude service saying I should have filed the claim at the airport baggage area but there was not anybody there to do the claim then he agent upstairs said they just spoke to them and they are there and I should have done it there. This was so rude and there is no way to get back into customs area. If we paid 200 for bags I expect them to arrive on time. I’m asking for a refund of the baggage fees."
Pros: "On time"
Pros: "The staff were professional and friendly The food was very good and plentiful The inflight entertainment has lots of choices The bathrooms remained clean All in stark contrast with BA with who I did the same flight 2 weeks ago and all the above points were very poor"
Cons: "Amesterdam airport employee was really rude"
Cons: "It was announced I can choose between fish and chicken meal but when I requested for fish meal, I was told it’s finished. My seat was 21, and it surprised me. If something can be changed about that then your services would be much appreciated. Thank you."
Pros: "The flight attendants could not do enough for you."
Cons: "Business class was pretty empty but again I was not allowed to change my seat selection online. Pathetic check-in."
Cons: "Without any explanation the plane I was due to go to Istanbul on at 11.30 was not available. I had to wait for a small plane coming from Edinburgh then wait for it to be emptied of passengers and cleaned. This meant we were over 2 hours late into Istanbul. No explanation or apology. I then missed my next flight in Istanbul and had to purchase another ticket. I cannot believe that air passengers are treated in this way!!! I will follow this up with KLM when I go home from my holiday."
Pros: "Cabin crew very pleasant"
Cons: "Lost our bags, little sympathy from staff"
Pros: "From downloading the KLM app to the final touchdown of my final flight, everything was an ease, checking in, the option to change my seat, the service received was great."
Cons: "The ability to state a seat or meal preference within the app would be good but otherwise all was good."
Cons: "suitcase didn't turn up, although connection was quite tight"
Cons: "Didn't allow my carry on. Said too big. Same bag was on earlier connecting flight on much smaller plane. Also on flight on Southwest week prior. But larger intercontinental flight wouldn't allow it."
Cons: "They didn’t let us board the plane. Allegedly the plane was changed and make us travel by train!! They offered us a compensation but we haven’t heard from them yet. Not good experience at all."
Pros: "On time."
Cons: "No negative"
Pros: "Staff at Schipol airport were lovely and very helpful. Cabin crew were friendly and efficient. On board snack was nice."
Cons: "Elbow room is a little bit awkward and I didn't get to sit next to my fiance WE will still definitely recommend KLM though!"
Pros: "Staff superb. They even surprised us with an exit row and a gift for my partners birthday! Amazing. Samantha and Dennis also took time to come and personally wish him a happy birthday. A lovely touch. This airline runs like clockwork. They are just great. The sandwich and stoop waffle are nice too."
Cons: "There is a bus to the plane, so that takes a bit of extra time but they are very well organized."
Pros: "Friendliest economy class service I've ever encountered."
Pros: "Great smooth flight staff was pleasant and the overall experience was fantastic."
Pros: "Seat space was good for a short flight, inclusive of free snack and drink."
Cons: "Too much overoverhead luggage."
Pros: "Having exit aisle made a huge difference in comfort Crew were EXCELLENT"
Cons: "Food was not very good Tasteless and rubbery"
Pros: "I liked the leg room, I liked the customer service of the crew, smooth flight."
Cons: "Both ways up and down I struggled with over-head luggage space. We were allowed a cabin bag and a small hand-bag in the flight but as we were among the last half of the passengers to board the flight we couldn't find anywhere to keep our luggage and the crew had to take them away from us to store them somewhere at the back far away from our seats. As a result we had to wait until all the passengers got off the plane to get back our luggage and we were the last two passengers to get off. Unpleasant!"
Pros: "KLM Is an impressive flying experience. We enjoyed the comfortable seats, the in-flight entertainment, and the food. The flight attendants are top notch as well."
Cons: "The only complaint I have regarding my most recent flight was the incredibly rude service staff whom we experienced at the front counter at check-in. After a harrowing cab ride to the airport in which our driver continuously ignored my request to follow the GPS insisting that he knew faster shortcuts, we arrived 40 minutes later than intended. Additionally he dropped us off at the wrong terminal such that we finally arrived at the KLM gate an hour later than we had planned. This was especially frustrating as we are traveling with two small children and made every effort to be punctual and leave early to be sure we got there with time to spare. Not the case today. All of that I could deal with, but when we arrived at the KLM counter, and I apologized to the attendant staff member that we were late and explained that our cab driver got lost, she responded by chastising us first in Spanish and then in broken English. She made sure to make it clear to us that it was our fault and we should not blame the Argentinian cabdriver. The cabdriver was not actually Argentinian, but that is totally besides the point. I was totally taken aback to be treated so rudely as a greeting at the airline counter. My wife share the same sentiment. Nothing like this has ever happened to us before. Thank God, every single airport personnel and of course KLM staff member on board was incredibly kind and accommodating of our children subsequent to this. It saved what otherwise could've been a terrible experience."
Pros: "...The transfer at JFK was terrible"
Pros: "In general, it was ok"
Cons: "Yet again it was flight delay from KLM side."
Cons: "Taking off late caused me stress because I had transferring flight within less than two hours in transit originally. So we arrived later about 50 minutes so I had to manage my situation and find my next gate and be on time. And an other thing that I disliked was that I was allowed to have only one baggage which was very unusual for international flight between two countenances. And the crew was not polite enough so she made fun of my Cary-on. In short, I expected more from KLM which is famous for them being "Royal" but not acting as one of them."
Pros: "The crew was very attentive."
Cons: "The seats are tight and uncomfortable. Emirates and Singapore airlines have much more space in economy class. They also have better food. The worst new development is that you have to pay an additional charge if you want to sit together. That is pretty ridiculous for an international flight AND when you have a small child with you. I can see doing that on Ryan air, but that is pretty low for a Scandinavian airline. Scandinavians have a very strong sense of family."
Pros: "Flight was fine...."
Cons: "....but departure wa delayed over an hour"
Pros: "The flight attendants were very patient and attentive, the vegetarian meal was probably the best I’ve ever had on a flight. The plane was a little older so there was a (relatively) comfortable amount of seat room."
Cons: "Some entertainment option would be nice, but it was a European flight under 3 hours, so not much was expected."
Pros: "New, clean airplane with a friendly and professional crew. It was not as uncomfortable as some of the other airlines I've used, though eight hours in economy is still too much. I chose it in part because of the connection through Copenhagen, which I recommend for an overnight stay. Great city."
Cons: "The chicken something or other on one of the flights was truly disgusting, but the rest of the economy food service was okay."
Pros: "SAS does it right with entertainment and food."
Pros: "The crew was nice and the food was good."
Cons: "More entertainment options"
Cons: "From Helsinki to Stockholm I missed my flight because we boarded late. Once in Stockholm I had to take two different planes for my destination and in result loosing time"
Cons: "I was unable to make it to copenhagen due to missing my connection"
Pros: "Excellent leg room in first seat near emergency exit door"
Cons: "Seat was close to toilets so a lot of traffic"
Cons: "Service was great"
Pros: "Small airplane"
Cons: "Confused information and double/extra charge for only one check-in baggage. They should make clear in the first place when booking ticket or check in online but NOT. I have to pay $83 dollars for one luggage."
Cons: "Seats were horrible, tiny , cramped"
Cons: "Tiny, hard, uncomfortable seats and cramped conditions, just about the worst 8 hours in my life"
Pros: "I slept the whole way through"
Cons: "Our ticket said economy, but it was a specific set of economy that did not include any baggage. If we were warned prior we could have purchased it for significantly cheaper. Our ticket was not clear and it cost us 175usd for two bags at the airport. Very disappointing"
Pros: "Really appreciated how helpful everyone was, from check-in at Newark to arrival. The entertainment system worked well, too. Aside from the two issues I describe below, SAS seems to be extremely efficient and well-run."
Cons: "There was some mix-up - not sure where - but I did requested a vegetarian meal and it wasn't in the system. I'd also requested an aisle seat due to a hip issue and was told I'd have one - but when I went to check in, I'd been put in a center seat in a bulkhead. I was able to change but it was the last row of the plane. We the gate they were able to move me up at the last minute - but this all could've been much easier."
Pros: "Comfortable seats in economy..... SAS did wait for us to board the plane (allowed us to make the final connection Copenhagen to DC), Thanks,,,,,"
Cons: "Our bags did not make the connection. Lost a camera with vacation photos (Canon - Elph - black color with a card full of vacation photos.) Sad.... :-("
Pros: "Internet not working. Horrible."
Pros: "Easy boarding"
Cons: "Seat width"
Cons: "gate change at the last minute across whole airport, and I am in a wheelchair so it was very challenging. people at airport not accommodating, kind or friendly"
Pros: "The airline staff were super efficient and kind."
Cons: "I would have liked more music selections especially calming. OceN sounds or Tibetan bowls etc for overnight flight."
Pros: "Softest landing ever"
Cons: "Not much entertainment but a domestic flight"
Pros: "Nice guy behind the counter."
Cons: "At self check-in, we received a message that we had been placed on standby and that our seats were no longer guaranteed (for the SECOND time this trip with no explanation despite our having purchased our tickets quite some time ago). We were directed to the gate for questions. No one manned the gate until right before boarding. We spent the entire time in a panic trying to figure out how else we could get to our destination in time for a wedding. When we finally talked to someone at the counter, he said this was just normal procedure to be able to shuffle seats. This is not normal. I have flown with many airlines, and I cannot imagine it is ever "normal" policy to tell people they have been downgraded to standby until just before the flight. So much anxiety. Also, the flight was delayed, and the crew had no communication about gates or any other information (within their OWN AIRLINE) for those with connecting flights."
Pros: "A female pilot! Nice crew. Clean bathroom."
Cons: "No complimentary peanuts or cookies! Paying for soda or juice. Very tight legroom. Window wouldn't close."
Pros: "There was nothing positive in this experience. Oh, the flight was safe and no one was injured?"
Cons: "Charged for checked bag on international flight. Late departure. Only food was a small cup of water on a 3+ hour, lunch time flight -- not even a bag of pretzels. Late arrival with short connection and flight attendant directed us to wrong gate. When we reached final destination, only one of two checked bags showed up."
Pros: "Just everything. On time, good service, relaxing flight. What else...?"
Pros: "Made it safely to destination"
Cons: "Series of unfortunate events: 1. No air vents in seats. Plane was very warm the entire flight. My husband and I spent 6+ hours sweating in our seats. 2. Dinner was not served until 9:30/10PM. By the time we received our food in the back, it was cold. 3. For guests who wanted to sleep during the red eye, the lights were not turned off until after dinner and cleanup, which meant only 2 or so hours of sleep in dark."
Cons: "Due to a train mix-up, I arrived at the Frankfurt airport with only 53 minutes to get through security and board. Lufthansa would not let me through the process, even though I immediately told them about the problem. They not only refused to let me board, but also refused to reschedule me. I had to buy a whole new round-trip ticket at more than double the price in order to meet my family for our once-in-a-lifetime reuinion in Norway, but also make my existing connection for the return flight. It cost me an additional 999 Euros cash in the middle of my vacation because my Kayak ticket was not refundable."
Pros: "Flight attendants were courteous and professional."
Cons: "Only offered coffee and tea during meals."
Cons: "Lost my luggage when the other 3 people who I am traveling with got theirs. Not sure what went wrong there. No SAS personnel was available, actually there was no airline counter even. I filed a lost and found report at the airport. I will contact the airline , hope they will find my bags or at least provide vouchers for my one week vacation."
Pros: "This was one of the best airlines we've flown. Great food, plenty of room, friendly stewardesses and good service overall. We will definitely try to book with SAS again."
Cons: "Nothing. There was nothing to not like. In fact they fed us too much!"
Pros: "service was good"
Cons: "The plane was full. Sets in economy were very small."
Pros: "Two 20-something young ladies tried to figure out system, individual issues while rest of us stood and watched versus passing through loading area. In addition, delayed due to short handed baggage loading crew. Flight was one hour late departing. Luggage did not make connecting flight to London. No wifi either."
Cons: "Smooth flight."
Cons: "Flight delayed 5 hours."
Pros: "boarding is different and they were talking over pa announcements at heathrow so you could not hear what to do. you go through one ticket agent to the down stairs to another ticket agent. everyone knowing what to expect crowded around the second ticket agent and there because of that forget about boarding by row or zone you couldn't get throught the crowd. plus the second ticket agent was right next to the downstairs escalator so people coming late got on before us."
Cons: "Seats very narrow and tight."
Cons: "My first flight was canceled. I'm still in Barcelona."
Pros: "Nothing at all"
Cons: "Fight was canceled and no email or communication was possible with this company. Called SAS office - CLOSED. Stood in line for 2 hours and no one came or announced anything. Checkin agents were on dope-no help and checking machines not working!"
Cons: "Unfortunately we had to postpone our trip due to a family crisis. I called in an attempt to receive a voucher or some credit. I was advised that a change was possible, but that with penalties and taxes, it would amount to MORE than the price of the ticket. Hell of a way to run a railroad!....speaking of railroads, that gives me an idea for when we reschedule!!"
Cons: "During online check in and through the website, I was informed that I would be able to have one free checked bag. I was never prompted that I would have to pay additional. However, when I arrived at the airport, I was told that I had to pay an additional $75 to check my bag in even though my boarding pass stated I was able to check in one bag. I was then pushed back and forth through the airport to complete this process. I would have liked to be given warning if I had to pay any additional costs."
Cons: "Well I looked online and the type of ticket I purchased said that I would have a free checked bag and I did not and I was charged 66€"
Pros: "Staff seemed nice. Boarding didn't take too long even when I was selected for a random check."
Cons: "The air conditioning didn't go on until take off. There were no options for food. All alcoholic beverages were not complementary and priced too high. I got sick after eating the meal that was provided. i reserved a seat but at check in the computer assigned me a different seat number. I was flying with a family member and instead of sitting next to them I had to sit next to a stranger."
Pros: "The food and movies were good."
Cons: "Didn't have enough money to sit in a seat with leg room."
Cons: "The food options need improvements. The portion and items are not tasty or plentiful."
Cons: "Bought tickets 8 months before flight. Was put on Standby status. Unable to get confirmed seat assignment until about 15 minutes before flight. Wasn't sure we would make flight until new boarding pass was issued by gate agent. And that boarding pass bounced when trying to board plane. New boarding pass had to be issued with another seat assignment. SAS is on my no fly list."
Pros: "Reasonably on time"
Cons: "No entertainment at all, no food at all, unless you are willing to pay 10 euros for a sad looking sandwich. You got water or coffe, or you overpaid. And it's not like they're giving the seats away!"
Pros: "Everything was smooth"
Pros: "Entertainment system."
Cons: "Food. In flight announcements were barely audible at times."
Pros: "Overhead storage adequate."
Cons: "Cramped (standard coach)as rhe person in front of me reclined his seat. Unhappy that I was required to pay extra to select a seat in standard coach when I made my reservation weeks ago. An airline's price should include selection of an available seat. Requirement to pay for even one drink on a transatlantic flight seemed cheesy."
Pros: "Everything was great!"
Cons: "Made us wait in a standing only line to board the plane. Then boarded everyone at once and had to wait outside to get on the plane in freezing rain."
Pros: "The movies were good"
Cons: "Very little legroom"
Cons: "Screen did not work and dinner wasn’t provided on the way back from Iceland."
Cons: "the pizza I had to pay for was cold, soggy, and dreadfully tasteless"
Pros: "The plane was comfortable"
Cons: "No snacks included"
Pros: "The calmness of the staff during the 3-hour delay due to dangerous winds"
Cons: "The hash winds that nearly swept us off of the steps while deplaning."
Pros: "Crew seemed okay comparatively to other airlines/crews."
Cons: "airport delays up to 2 hours, not knowing which gate and changing it all the time in Reykjavik, seating was hyper cramped, no food to compensate for the extra long trip, my carry on was taken from me even though it easily fit in overhead (it's a legal size duffel bag). I was exhausted after spending well over 14 hours in airports and 2 planes from Paris to DC."
Pros: "We missed our connection because our flight was delayed by an hour. When we arrived in Keflavik, we were directed to the service counter and they got us on a different flight departing in 5 min. We hurried to through passport control and ran to the gate. We boarded the plane and realized they sat us in first class. What a treat. To our surprise, all of our checked bags made it through as well. Icelandair is officially out new favorite airline!"
Pros: "We were rebooked via Frankfurt to Washington via Lufthansa"
Cons: "Forget about comfortable experience during the flight. The way how they list the ticket from Kayak is the scam. Stated Economy class on Kayak and their own website ticket info. Once you chek in, they will stated this is the cheapest economy ticket, doesnt allow any baggage, and you have to pay I think around $150 for round trip baggage. End up with just to carry on, wouldnt able to shop in Europe. If you includ baggage flight would be similar to other airline provide baggage and quality services. Huge mistake, customer service located overseas, and dont care about customer."
Cons: "no one ever gave us info on chg of plane,rushed special needs help to other end of airport and waited over an hour without explanation."
Pros: "Seat legroom good & seats fairly comfortable."
Cons: "Crew not friendly & I got bumped by a flight attendant 4 different times, including one elbow to the head, & no one ever said sorry or excuse me. No food served & what was offered was expensive ($23 for a baguette sandwich!). Flight departed on time & arrived 20 minutes late with no apparent reason & no announcements on a good weather day. I assume there were headwinds but no one said anything."
Cons: "Poor service at every level of customer service where good service should be given. The worst service I experienced was at the ticket counter in IAD and Glasgow."
Pros: "Route great and faster than going through London."
Cons: "Boarding was a bit chaotic with everyone boarding at once and not by row."
Pros: "Bottle of water at boarding was a nice touch"
Cons: "Boarding at Reykjavik airport was a mess"
Pros: "I did enjoy the on flight entertainment. The crew was pleasant and accommodating."
Cons: "Some sort of free snack would have been nice given the length of the flight. Granted, I've not flown an extensive amount, and free water and coffee is fine, but it would have been very nice to have some sort of snack half way through a 6+ hour flight"
Pros: "Flight was good and informative"
Cons: "Boarding was unorganized"
Pros: "The kid amenities are superb. Free meal for them, free headphones, activity book, colored pencils, and seat back kids movies. Happy kids = happy parents!"
Cons: "It took a ridiculous amount of time (like an hour) for the plane to board once people started filing on. Terminal was already crowded to the point of shoulder to shoulder standing-room-only. Shuffling at a snails pace with three exhausted kids and all of our carry on stuff was not cool."
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: "the plane waited for late connecting flights (including mine)"
Cons: "Both flights were overbooked, there was only one person in line for checking bags, which we stood for over an hour in and barely had time to make it to our flight."
Pros: "The flight itself-- good free entertainment, nice staff"
Cons: "The boarding process. The flight was late and the boarding area was crowded with other flights which isn't their fault. But they didn't make announcements about when it would board either and it boarded well ahead of the time posted on the electronic schedule."
Pros: "I like the price of your fares and the staff is very courteous"
Cons: "Don't like my bag being left behind in reyjkavik I have also tried to register online to gain frequent flyer points and the web site keeps rejecting my membership. I have now entered requested info and ticked all requested boxes six times and it still rejects. I have confirmed my password has required lowercase, uppercase and numeric characters. I'll keep trying but I have lost the last two round trip flights being documented.(that's eight segments"
Pros: "You were very kind to my grandmother on this trip and gave us excellent help with mobility issues"
Cons: "Not enough time to grab a bite to eat during layover!"
Cons: "One of three checked bags did not arrive on time."
Cons: "In Iceland you had to board the plane from the tarmac"
Cons: "The Reykjavik airport is not set up to handle the amount of traffic it's getting. Boarding was completely disorganized with everyone just waiting for the gates to open. Then we were bused (in the rain) to our plane)."
Pros: "cost of ticket"
Cons: "hate to think what it would be like making the connections in the winter! Iceland is called Iceland for a reason."
Cons: "nothing served for meals on a 6 hour transatlantic flight"
Cons: "My husbands screen didn't work and couldn't be fixed. For boarding, there was never an announcement and seemed unorganized"
Pros: "I really like Iceland air. On many airlines, they Nicole and dome you and you feel like you're being shoved on to a livestock truck and treated like a package . Iceland Air treats like a human."
Cons: "Free wifi for everybody please."
Cons: "4 flights were leaving within 15 minutes, all in the same small terminal space. People were all crowded trying to figure out which "line" to be in when there were no lines, no instructions and lots of concerned passengers. My gate actually had a sign reading final boarding when no one had even been allowed through yet. This was freaking some people out. No announcements to clarify anything either. Very disappointing."
Pros: "Nothing really,"
Cons: "Will never trave will icelandair again"
Cons: "I've been on 4 flights through Kevlavik this year, 4 last year. Husband flew separately this year, also 4 flights. ALL except one flight was delayed by at least 30 minutes in Reykjavik. That's ridiculous!! Considering that Icelandair charges nearly as much for their transatlantic flights as other airlines such as KLM or Delta, I'm beginning to wonder why I should return!"
Pros: "Entertainment was fine and map of where you are"
Cons: "Boarding was 20 minutes late with no announcement No free food service for a long flight"
Cons: "This was the worst flight ever. Firstly, we were unnecessarily delayed because a flight before us was delayed and the people had crowded our gate. Secondly, my entertainment system didn't work and I was not given any blanket, pillow, or bottle of water. Thirdly, there were no snacks provided. Also the staff was not communicative and did not tell us what was going on. It was terrible."
Pros: "Received lost luggage the following day"
Cons: "Plane let 30 minutes late & miss loaded 7 diverted ALL luggage to Kennedy rather than IAD"
Pros: "Same as above"
Cons: "Same as above"
Cons: "Lots of delays boarding bus for the plane and then too much time sitting on the tarmac. The terminal needs places to sit."
Cons: "Entertainment needs more selection."
Pros: "Getting us from JFK to hotel at La Guardia via van, booking the hotel, and providing voucher for breakfast, booking another flight to get us back to IAD from JFK the next day"
Cons: "Due to delays in the flights had to get rebooked into JFK, then to IAD the next day. Ended up getting into JFK late, so missed that connection into IAD that night. not providing for transport from hotel at La Guardia back to JFK the next day."
Cons: "Lost my luggage. Contact number does not work. Complete frustration. Recommend carry-on only"
Pros: "Personal entertainment screen."
Cons: "Old movies on the entertainment choices. Limited music choices - mostly songs and artists that are unknown."
Pros: "Really dislike boarding via steps on tarmac and cramming everyone on shuttle bus to the aircraft."
Cons: "Having to pay for food."
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."
Cons: "Complete and utter chaos at the boarding process. No effort to board by rows or in any order. People pushing and shoving to get to the front of the line to board first. One single person checking boarding passes/passports at the gate. Horrible experience. Minimal leg room in coach class. Flight attendants did not seem to be happy about being on the flight and provided minimal service without a smile. The temperature on the fight was ridiculously hot - I've never been on a plane where it was so warm in the cabin."
Pros: "The Reykjavik airport is not well suited to board so many flights at the same time. The terminal was crowded and boarding was chaos."
