Cons: "The food was terrible, wifi was extremely expensive (Delta had free messaging over their wifi)"
Pros: "Very friendly service!"
Pros: "Only thing we liked was the fact that we were able to get onto our flight at all..."
Cons: "Was not informed that checking in online is the only way to secure a seat. So, regardless of whether you book your tickets 3 months in advance or the day before, you're not actually guaranteed a seat unless you check in online. We weren't told this until we were at the airport and checked in there that we might not be able to get our pre-booked in advance flight because of over-booking from KLM. We then had to wait and see if there were seats available when boarding. Luckily, there were, but we were not sat together. Not the greatest start to our first holiday together as a couple. We were told that if there weren't seats available, they'd pay for us to get to another airport to fly out, which would have meant a huge delay on the only time off we'd get together this year and have to rearrange our pre-booked and pre-paid living arrangements for the week. All because there wasn't a lot of emphasis on the need to check in online before hand. You'd think if someone checked in at the airport, that would be more of a guarantee that they'd be flying with you that day, but apparently not. Definitely not impressed or happy with this part of the KLM experience. This is the only company that we've had this problem with, they should make it clearer that it is essential to check in online."
Pros: "The crew came to get me from the arrival gate to get to the departure gate since our plane was delayed. It helped to know that the airline was checking to make sure we made the flight."
Cons: "I did not get my luggage in Nairobi. The delayed flight that was the most likely reason it did not get to the connecting flight to Nairobi."
Pros: "The last two times we connected in Amsterdam to Humberside our luggage was delayed. This time it wasn’t. The simple things give the greatest satisfaction"
Pros: "Good efficient flight crew friendly and helpful"
Pros: "quick and relaxed"
Cons: "Per usual, KLM can't seem to figure out the order of boarding the plane. Should be business - priority - everyone else. Instead they do priority first, and that's usually two-thirds of the passengers. Strange choice of in-flight movies; no accounting for taste, I guess."
Pros: "Eveything is well arranged"
Cons: "Only one queue for boarding. Flight late on arrival."
Cons: "Klm flight has very congested seating Getting information about eticket was pain"
Pros: "For an 8 hr flight...multiple snacks, 2 meals and continuous beverage service. Blanket, pillow amd movies."
Cons: "Watched flight attendant drop tongs on floor, pick them up and put them back in the bowl of buns and continue to use them to serve bums"
Pros: "It's the best flight I could get for such a low price. But don't expect to to get the best and newest planes around but it's still overall a good experience."

Ruined a dress my wife had planned to wear to a wedding because the red suitcase bled through to the dress. Underwater, etc was soaked. The extent of it we didn't realize until unpacking the suitcases later. Totally disgusted they could have left our suitcase in the rain uncovered (or perhaps dropped them in a puddle)."

Pros: "NOTHING AA IS THE WORST. This is my 2ND AA experience within a 5 month time period and the first experience i tried brushing under the mat as it was bad however this one TAKES THE CAKE"
Cons: "The airport staff after TSA are RUDE! I was suppose to leave from one destination to another, last night. AA rebooked me without my consent and assumed i would be ok taking a later flight 24hrs later. After hassle, i thought i received a perfect flight which would get me to my destination A WEDDING at that in time. However, i have been rebooked over 5x in under 24hrs and still at the airport from 9hrs later! They do not compensate you and do not even extend the offer!"
Pros: "The 737 was excellent. Boeing still makes the best aircraft."
Cons: "Being rescheduled from an 0830 departure to a 0530 departure, which meant I had to get up at 0300 to get to RIC by 0400 for TSA and check-in. As originally planned I would have arisen at 0500, still early, but not nearly 0300. The equipment had no individual entertainment screens. So we were stuck with whatever was on the common screen...which was bad."
Cons: "Plane was delayed all day and when we finally boarded we were told it was due to an engine problem!! Not good!!"

Pros: "The pilot was great about keeping us up to date on the possible route change and exactly how long we would be sitting on the runway, new arrival time, etc."
Cons: "We sat on the runway for 35 minutes with no offer of a beverage (though there was going to be beverage service). Then just before take off as the flight attendants were snacking in the back, we asked about a possible drink and they said the flight was going to be too turbulent to serve anything."

Cons: "It was extremely frustrating that there was no kiosk available when checking in. I did not have a bag to check, yet I waited on a ridiculously long line to check in for my flight. The people working the desk at the gate were slow and unpleasant. Service on plane was terrible."
Pros: "One crew guy was really nice. I had bruised my leg and he gave me ice and checked in on me."
Cons: "Vueling/Iberia lost my luggage."
Pros: "Fine flight once we were in the air."
Cons: "There were NO SIGNS saying it was a level flight, not Iberia. No one at Iberia check in desk etc. We eventually figured it out after a while. In general Iberia and level are short staffed and unorganized. If you're willing to deal with this, it's an affordable option and they'll get you from A to B."
Pros: "Smooth flight"
Cons: "It was delayed"
Cons: "I checked in online and paid for a checked piece of baggage, never received the boarding pass, so when I arrived to the airport to drop off the luggage and wait for boarding, the machines didn't recognize my ticket locator and I had to stand in line for almost 2 hours (missed my flight)…"
Pros: "Crew was nice and reliable."

Pros: "Entertainment was ok, had holl rodarte options and good variety"
Cons: "Seats are hard, no leg space, no elbow space, the upright is 90degrees. The crew is not helpful, to the point and act like they are doing you a favor by being there. In one instance the attendant told a passenger "you can move your bag, or I will move it for you." To another passenger, without prev"
Cons: "It should have departed on time. It departed 50 minutes later than the original time."
Pros: "Arrived at destination"
Cons: "Left an hour and a half late due to mechanical problems. This also disrupted in flight entertainment system. Got to destination"
Cons: "The crew is not nice and rude. The checkin counter didnt allow me to have overweight of 300 grams. Ridiculous. At some areas of the plan the air conditioning doesn't work well"

Pros: "Nothing -- though seat was okay. No leg room, but it reclined a little, and had those foldable headrests."
Cons: "The boarding was supposed to be by zone, but was just a mad rush. They served no food, not even for money. There was an onscreen ordering option, but for the entire flight it said "this service is temporarily closed". They didn't have a beverage cart. Not even water or coffee. I couldn't even get a cup of water to swallow some ibuprofen and an allergy pill (somebody brought a companion cat, I suspect, quite near to me). No food or water on an international flight across the Atlantic??? You've got to be kidding me -- that's gotta be close to illegal, not providing any means of hydration. But it's certainly cheap, mean, and unacceptable. Pathetic, too."
Cons: "Delays an chaos"
Cons: "We had to walk onto the tarmac and climb up stairs to board the plane carrying our luggage and small child."
Pros: "Once I understood how it worked it was a breeze"
Cons: "Made more than four different lines before 1 understanding Iberia worker helped us out. Was told that that wasn’t the correct line and sent to another. The next place the same for more than 3 times. Then finally, Raquel, LISTENED, and away we went."
Cons: "This is my second time flying with this airline and it’s 40 mins late leaving again! Poor reliability and flying at night with my young son. I did not want to arrive an additional 45mins later in a city that can be dangerous"
Pros: "Some good films to watch"
Cons: "Terrible seats mediocre food our tickets said Iberia but it was actually its low-cost version Level"
Cons: "Layovers are what makes the flight bad."
Cons: "The plan was too small."
Pros: "The cool thing about this airline is that it’s dirt cheap to get from Oakland to Barcelona!! I will say tho, you do get what you pay. We purchased the most basic flight and that’s really what it was. Tight leg room and lots of people. If you’re over 5’5 I HIGHLY RECOMMEND getting extra leg room if it’s available. Aside from that. The flight was cool and the staff was nice!"
Pros: "Good organization and time on flight."

Pros: "Our flight was subcontracted through another airline, Level, so my comments are related to Level."
Cons: "I called the airline a week before our departure regarding the baggage fee. I was assured the fee was included in the price. However, at the time of check in, I was charged a $55 checked bag fee."
Cons: "Flight from Iberia, operated by AA and finaly no flight!!!!!"
Pros: "We flew like we were on a business class service, excellent crew, nice offer of meals, comfortable seats and flawless journey. If you are given the chance to upgrade to Premium, do it."
Cons: "Short selection of subtitles for videos. Catalogue not bad but could be improved"
Cons: "Slow service by the flight attendants; poorly stocked food options. perhaps it’s a European thing with budget airlines but to pay for water is unacceptable."
Pros: "Quick boarding."
Cons: "No movies or videos. Children crying and screaming."

Pros: "Professional kind and helpfull crew Punctual departure and arrival on time"
Cons: "No free headphones available and no games on personal tablets No vegi dishes and no choice of meals for allergic passengers Very little space for legs"
Pros: "Great in flight experience! Cabin crew were very friendly and kind. Entertainment was awesome!"
Cons: "Food was delicious compared to most American airlines. However, portions were smaller. Seating is more narrow compared to standard non low-cost laung-haul airlines. You will not have a pleasant flight if you're a tall and/or a big person."
Pros: "Extremely punctual Friendly staff Comfortable seat design Outstanding entertainment options"
Cons: "No complimentary drinks, not even a glass of water. Check in was horrendous. I pre purchased luggage Check in but when I arrived in airport the automated system doesn't like to that piece of data. Didn't know that so was in a long line to use automated check in when I was supposed to be in an even longer line to have service personnel check me in. So finally after standing in both lines I did get checked in......."

Cons: "Disorganized boarding and didn't even offer water for free on flight."

Pros: "The one glass of white wine I was served was delicious. Crew was friendly. Food was surprisingly elaborate for a short flight."

Pros: "Self checkin, there was no line and things moved quickly."
Cons: "Flight was almost an hour late because the boarding process was so slow. They took forever and then literally bussed us to the other side of the airport to the budget carrier side, which wasted more time. Was a bit of a joke really. Served seafood snack, not everyone eats seafood."

Pros: "Nothing was amazing. Worse thing is the luggage -- they only allow 8kg as carry on, You can hardly carry anything more than a computer and the actual TUMI carryon bag with that."

Cons: "The space between seats are small."
Pros: "Left on time, arrived on time."
Cons: "Flight was over an hour late, and they would not let us take our carry-on luggage on the flight even though there was plenty of room in the overhead compartments, which caused us to miss our return flight home overseas. No customer service desk at the airport. Ended up costing hundreds of dollars more to book another flight home."
Pros: "The plan was clean, newer, and comfortable. If you sit towards the front of the plane you end up sitting in economy plus for the economy price."
Cons: "No entertainment, but the flight were short enough it wasn't really a problem. With downloadable Netflix and Prime, that isn't a problem anymore."
Pros: "Same as previous flight"
Cons: "Same as previous flight"
Cons: "Not good I book a fly"
Pros: "Our flight was late, so we missed our connecting flight to Barcelona, but TAP had already rebooked us on a different flight and had boarding passes all printed out. Good Job."
Pros: "Easy mobile check in process,"
Pros: "Service, the way the pilot communicated our delay and the food and beverage"
Pros: "Wonderful customer service!!"
Pros: "Not much"

Pros: "Seats are ok and good entertainment system"
Cons: "The attitude of the hostist and the way they dont give you food choices and don't even explain or say what food they are giving you. When i ask whats in this they gave me a look and a weird attitude"
Pros: "Cabin staff was nice"
Cons: "Very cramped seating; rude baggage handlers; bad system for boarding"
Cons: "The attendant who checked me in at the Porto airport was very rude and sarcastic. At the gate they said the flight would be delayed half an hour, however they just called us to start boarding a half an hour after the flight was expected to leave. At that time the passengers of the previous flight were just starting to leave the plane so everyone that was about to board then had to stand in the freezing cold tunnel way with all of our bags for another 20 minutes while the previous passengers got off. There was no food or any beverage other than water offered on the flight."
Pros: "No issues, short trip, friendly staff, comfortable ride..."
Pros: "On time departure"
Cons: "Slow baggage claim"
Pros: "The plane was new, clean, and spacious. The staff was mostly helpful and friendly,"

Pros: "Very quick and efficient"
Cons: "Carryin size is so small for the airline"
Pros: "Crew was nice"
Cons: "Flight from Porto to Lisbon was late. We almost didn't make our flight from Lisbon to Barcelona. Our luggage didn't make the connection."
Cons: "We had to pay for a check in luggage fee. Then flight was delayed for about an hour. The gate number change so we had to keep on checking to see what gate it was to be. They keeping on changing the delayed time so it end up being nearly two hours before we got on the plane. I was very disappointed that we didn't get where we needed to be on time. Our hour and 45 minute flight end up just wasting time waiting for the plane. They could of at least refund our check in bag fee for the inconvenient."
Pros: "Stay away from TAP. I wish the people at the counter were just rude - they were tormenting us and lying to me about my luggage. When they found out I insisted on not checking my bag, they told me they would "keep it" in the meantime. Turned out they went ahead and threw the bag onto the plane. We ended up having to go find it at lost and found. They initially told me it was going to only take 5-10 mins to retrieve my luggage, but then 40 mins passed and still nothing. My poor mom had to wait by the empty belt - and boarding started and the luggage still wasn't there. They forced us to pay 35 euros (it's principle, not the money) when their policy said nothing about it when I booked it on the website. My mom was in tears and I had the worst few hours of my life. TAP - you are disgusting. It takes a lot for me to be upset but you really did everything out of your way to make us suffer. Even told us we might have to miss our flight. You put a huge dent on my trip."
Cons: "Please see above."
Pros: "The crew."
Pros: "New plane. Great service."
Cons: "Seats are very small. No entertainment system."
Cons: "...do I really have to say anything else? I'm in a foreign country, jet lagged, and still wearing the clothes I've been marinating through multiple time zones. I'm not happy at all with this flight, and over 12 hours later, I feel disgusting, and my first day in Barcelona has been miserable because of it. I place all of the blame on the Lisbon connecting terminal. I am not happy."
Pros: "A short flight, on-time."
Cons: "Tiny seats"
Pros: "The plane was really comfortable and clean with plenty of legroom, and the staff friendly."
Pros: "Easy checking and boarding process"
Pros: "Basically on time and the employees were very efficient and professional."
Cons: "Having to take a very crowded shuttle bus to the plane."
Cons: "the second flight was late by 30 min."
Pros: "We were shuttled to the plane then the plane wasn't ready, so the bus took us back. We just stood on the bus by the gate for a good 20min. Then went back to the plane again. This time it was ready for boarding. I don't understand why they took us if the plane was ready. Once we were there why did we go back to the gate again?? Get it together TAP. My first and only experience and it wasn't a good one."
Pros: "Comfort And good service"
Pros: "Crew was great"
Cons: "Not much it was ok"
Cons: "I purchased this ticket 4 months prior to flying....traveled half way around the world and the flight was oversold. I was bumped and left with people meeting in another country waiting for no one to show up. Go to hell TAP Portugal Airlines."
Pros: "Very pleasant and accommodating."
Pros: "Very helpful and friendly crew, that is hard to come by these days. Movie choices were great."
Cons: "I have this problem with most flights, on-boarding is a mess people just herd around when it’s not their group."
Cons: "Was late"
Cons: "We were 3 hours lake due to a mechanical problem. We missed our connection in Barcelona. We received no support from United. Left on our own in a foreign country and had to scramble to rebook ourselves at considerable extra expense. Totally unacceptable!"
Cons: "I thought that this flight was booked through Luftansa, at least that is what the ticket said. After waiting in line at the Lufthansa desk, I was told that the flight was actually through United, so I had to go and wait in line at an even longer United desk. Then, United charged me $60 for my bag!!"
Pros: "Ronald our flight attendant made our first flight experience to Europe great. He was amazing."
Cons: "I would not change anything."
Pros: "The crew WAS amazing. The seating was a little tight, but ok."
Cons: "For a flight over two hours, a snack would have been nice."
Pros: "Boarding and meal"
Cons: "Service in first class and the heavy turbulence could of reached a warning from the pilot"
Cons: "Seats are very small, could be bigger and more comfortable"
Pros: "ANA Chicago to Tokyo was so awesome. Crew is super courteous and polite. Food is good even economy class. Good headphones were already in front of the seats. ANA is the one that you want to fly!"
Cons: "Plane delayed to gate from hangar for mechanical. Flight never took off b/c the mechanical issues couldn’t be resolved; no other planes available. My trip postponed a full day, causing me to lose $500. Really poor to arrive at an airport before 6am and not fly for another 24hrs."
Pros: "The food was OK."
Cons: "I have been flying all over the world on many different airlines. This was my first international flight on United. The 777 we were on had NO inflight intertainment system! The HVAC system switched from to Hot to to Cold and was mostly Freezing. The reading light controls were cross wired from different seats and aimed all wrong. The Flight attendants were mostly old and grumpy."
Pros: "Early arrival after on time departure"
Cons: "No complaints"
Cons: "delayed. missed my connector and had to rebook to a later flight"
Pros: "Flight was pleasunt overall and sits were comfortable, flight crue was pleasurable and polite, I enjoyed the flight"
Cons: "Food was really bad, it was not cooked all way through and chicken dish didn’t have any chicken but only mush as well as rice was not cocked. For united airlines, the food should be much better"
Pros: "First off I’m a Diabetic and some of my diabetic medication and or supplies are with me and some in my LOST checked luggage. I currently say lost because it Day 3 in Ibiza and the luggage never left Newark with my flight originally and is supposedly in Barcelona while I’m here. Called everyday for updates on my bag and they give you very little useful info. Oh and the 7:45 departure last Thursday didn’t leave until 2:30am, then they kicked us out of our economy plus seats picked for comfort and tossed us in middle aisle seats some place else which were ridiculously uncomfortable. There’s no entertainment except in first class and this is a 777 huge jet. Filing a claim, sending a letter to their ceo, a letter to he DOT, and grabbing a good lawyer friend for counsel on this because it’s a disaster. I had to buy everything I needed which isn’t enough and I’m also running out of diabetic supplies since the rest I’d my lost / delayed luggage. So delayed flight by 6hrs, kicked out of original seats, lost and delayed luggage, airlines seems to refuse to send it to my hotel through other carriers, 3days and no luggage and wondering if they are going to send it to Ibiza while I’m heading back to Barcelona today. No one calls me or emails or updates me on any status changes of where my bag is and what’s going on. Their customer service sucks and it’s some guy or girl in another country who gives no fks about your situation. I will never fly with United again"
Cons: "Everything see above"
Cons: "Flight was so delayed we would have missed our connection and been stranded in DC overnight, so we had to push all our reservations back and missed a full day of our vacation."
Cons: "everything started when we tryed to check in online for our flights with Lufthansa, when we got some errors saying that our flights does not exist. NO Emails, not calls, no messages, no voice mesagges left by the company! -called the client service, located in Philipine apparently, the lady confirms that all our flights were canceled (3), then she hangs off the phone. -called the second time, another lady is rebooking me on a different flight, but she informs me that my husband is not on the same reservation as me, so basically he is in another flight. Eventualy she is changing his reservation as well and puts him on the same flight as me. -waiting for the confirmation email, of course the reservation is just for me, no husband anywere. -called the third time, a nice canadian gentelman informs us that the second flights was canceled so he will redirect us via NJ instead of Washington. -we are rushing to the Richmond airport to catch the NY flight, at the counter they let us know that this flights was canceled and we are back on the DC flight. -when ready to board in the DC flight they are announcing the this flights is delayed from 1:30 pm to 7:30 pm due to weather conditions. -waiting in the line to be rebooked in another flight, after 3 h of waiting they decide they can fly to DC at 4:45 pm, with about 15 people on board."
Pros: "The flight going to Newark was cancelled due to the weather. The service person was prompt to changed our flight to Washington, DC."
Cons: "Due to staffing problems the flight going to DC left Richmond 1.5 hours late. The plane left at 4pm and our connecting flight to Rome was starting boarding at 425pm. It was very stressful. I can understand changes due to weather but there is no excuse when it comes to staffing."
Pros: "Very enthusiastic friendly and responsive crew"
Cons: "Luggage zipper on a new suitcase was broken. No entertainment and food just ok"
Pros: "Boarding was seamless"
Cons: "Planes were older and tight."
Cons: "We booked Lufthansa and paid more for our ticket to have this airline. We ended up on a united flight which we did not want. They have no TVs and tiny seats which is absolutely ridiculous considering it’s international travel. If we book one airline we expect to get the airline we paid for."
Pros: "The crew was wonderful and tried to help me!"
Cons: "My seat was changed 24 hours before the flight inexplicably from an aisle seat to a center seat which is problematic for me. I will most likely not book through Kayak or Lufthansa again on a United codeshare because of this experience."
Cons: "2 hour delay"
Cons: "Personnel were unhelpful and not forthcoming! Very inconvenient with trying to reschedule to the next day! Felt as if no one really cared if we got there or not! No vouchers were offered for hotels or food!"
Pros: "Good communication from the Captain throughout the delay"
Cons: "United horrible customer service"
Pros: "Crew was very attentive and kind. Plane was clean and comfortable."
Cons: "Food was not good."
Pros: "Courtesy and smiling faces"
Cons: "So many maintenance delays, I wouldn't make any connections. Gate attendants were crabby and not very helpful. Absolutely no leg room. Much less than most major airlines."
Pros: "We arrived in one piece"
Cons: "I've flown 2.5 MM miles over the past 2 decades and United service has deteriorated. Pilot made up some time so arrived 1 hr late then waited another hour for our baggage."
Pros: "Left on tarmac for 20 minutes prior to takeoff. Late flying into IAD with no guidance from crew or ground crew with very short time to catch next flight. With no info, felt abandoned."
Cons: "Lack of info from United crew."
Pros: "The crew was very professional."
Cons: "Nothing, good flight and no problems."
Pros: "I always like the multiple entertainment options with the seat back screens. The dinner meal was much better than I expect in coach."
Pros: "We were early getting into the Springs."
Pros: "Everthing, except the typical cramped quarters."
Cons: "The cramped seating"
Pros: "Short flight so little to complain about."

Cons: "Flight delayed an hour and a half"
Pros: "Great experience. Good service"
Pros: "I liked the staff on the DELTA flight I was transferred onto."
Cons: "United flight was delayed by 2 hours unitially, and eventually by 5 hours. Transfer to Delta flight was acceptable but deposited me at the wrong airport! A lot of money and inconvenience and delay after that to get to my destination. And no compensation offered for that!"
Pros: "Relatively, on time."
Cons: "The seats were hardest, most uncomfortable airline seats yet. No padding whatso ever. They now have 4 boarding classes plus the 'special' folks. If you drag your bag to the gate , which slows down boarding, you get it checked for free, if you check it yourself at the counter you get to pay 25$ ... Since older people generally do not want to be carrying luggage up the 'stairs and through the Chicago airport', it means they get to pay extra! I think it is age discrimination that all the airlines are doing. Only the young can fly the cheapest."
Pros: "The pilot had an excellent landing in adverse conditiions"
Cons: "The in-flight concessions were extremely poor. The staff were impolite and inconsiderate"
Cons: "We arrived early and then sat on tarmac for so long we were technically late.."
Cons: "Whers my bag!?!?!"
Cons: "United rerouted us and added another leg to our trip. We never flew Richmond to Denver. We ended up going Richmond -> Chicago -> Denver -> Santa Barbara. This caused us to miss a post-wedding brunch with family that we're only able to see about once every three years. All this after changing our flight out to the east coast the day of the flight (my 8:55pm flight was changed to 5:23pm, and I was notified after 3pm - meaning I had to run out of work early, costing me money, run home to pack, and rush to the airport, only to wait 3 hours for a now delayed flight). The also added another leg to that trip as well (at 3pm, day of). This was a red-eye flight and the last thing we wanted to do was get on and off the plane all night. I will not be flying with United after this trip."
Pros: "I like that I was put on another plane and went from Richmond to Chicago. It was a very small plane but mine was overbooked."
Pros: "No connection anywhere, efficient direct flight, on time, and comfortable"
Cons: "There wasn't anything that I didn't like"
Pros: "The pretzel snacks had flavoring added"
Cons: "My seat didn't recline My arm rest wouldn't raise My flight was delayed for hours There wasn't another available flight I could switch to I lost a whole day of work from getting in at 1:00 AM"
Cons: "when i purchased my flight ut was for 6am. After paying for my tickets my flight time was changed to 9am. Then 24 hours prior to my flight it wad changed to 11am due to technical difficulties. This caused me to have to take a later flight out of Chicago O'Hare."
Pros: "Convenient, cheap, best route"
Cons: "Incredibly uncomfortable seats on the express jets - we joked that we need to bring stadium cushions next time. For a full day of traveling, I would consider a more expensive route with another airline than tolerating the hard seating they offer."
