Pros: "Mint is the best experience ever!"
Cons: "Hand sanitizers on plane"
Cons: "Online chk in , was not easy ."
Pros: "The crew was very efficient. There was a medical emergency on board, and they dealt with it very professionally and effectively."
Cons: "The boarding process was extremely disorganized. Gate attendants boarded Mosaic and Mint passengers, and then simply stopped boarding. Passengers ended up just scanning their own tickets and began boarding in a first-come-first-served manner."
Pros: "Concierge at check in helping me saving money."
Cons: "Kayak and Travelocity making Sure to confirm if checked bags are included or not, the confirmation of flight purchase wasn’t clear enough and stated that Luggage info isn’t available at this moment so I got the big surprise at check in."
Cons: "Audio on TV was bad."
Pros: "Flight departed on time, plane was clean, flight was smooth without issues of any sort."
Pros: "Outstanding cabin service snacks & entertainment. Freezing cold cabin"

Cons: "Plane delayed for 3 hours, poor communication explaining change of boarding times that were constantly pushed back."
Pros: "Crew was nice, snack and drink access is a plus"
Cons: "Delayed departure and then long wait to deplane due to ground crew issues on arrival. Arrived too late to use public transportation to get home and had to take a cab which is expensive and annoying."
Cons: "Boarding took a long time. We were waiting in the tunnel for longer than usual."
Cons: "Tv controls on armrest are a bad design. Seats aren’t too comfy."
Pros: "We traveled MINT and really enjoyed the crew and our option to board first. My wife is walking disabled and we had wheel chair service right to the door of the aircraft."
Cons: "When we arrived in Boston, we sat on the tarmac for almost an hour waiting for an available gate. Then when the walkway was secured, no one was there to meet my wife with the wheel chair until all the passengers had disembarked. The delays stressed us out and we had a limo waiting for us."
Cons: "I didn’t get to pick my seating when I booked the flight (probably because the flight is so close to Christmas) me and my friend were put in middle seats (him in the row behind me) it was very hard to sleep that way. It would’ve been nice to be put together seeing as I bought the tickets pretty far in advanced, or at least have gotten better seats."
Cons: "In a long flight, one pack snack and a ken of cold srink is not enough."
Pros: "Ease of boarding. Comfortable seating"
Pros: "Overall service was very good."
Cons: "I normally fall asleep on these flyghts, but For a red eye this plane was too small and seats uncomfortable to sleep."

Cons: "too hot very uncomfortable and the the flight was delayed."
Pros: "The overnite flight"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Price very high. It cost over $800 to get a direct flight. Robbery. That is for a Middle Seat! It was another $95 for a decent seat. These companies are thieves. Outrageous!"
Pros: "It is the shortest way Skopje / San Diego home for Us in both places. I have traveled with Turkish Air 4 times. I stay longer time and like the fact that they allow two suitcases check in. I like the hospitality beg with all needed . The food was good. The crew was helpful. The entertainment was limited. Overall it was good but not as comfortable as I would like for such a long flight. It is like a contract to "stay sited"90% of the time."
Cons: "On the way to San Diego long wait at the Istambul Airport over night not place to rest. All in all the crew was very helpful and food was good. The comfort in economy class was limited could not strech legs or sleep. I did request and filed out paper work for frequent fly ( last time 6 mos. ago) but did not get any word or credit for upgrading. In NY finding Jet Blue was hard. But we liked that new plane exept for the fact that there was no food service for 6 Hrs flight."
Cons: "Luggage claim took an hour to arrive"
Pros: "Many facilities and kind crew"
Cons: "Two hours late - Jet Blue allows too many "extra carry ons" which delay entrance and exiting considerably. Noticed so many people with an extra carry on as well as a backpack the same size as a suitcase. Staff no way as gracious as staff from Boston to San Diego I do make allowance that they too were delayed and probably fatigued."
Pros: "The smiley and friendly flight attendants. The warm hand towels offered near the end of the flight. Being able to watch TV shows."
Cons: "I miss the days when you received more than a small bag of snacks for food. No movies were ever offered on the flight--just TV shows. Cramped middle seat."
Pros: "Checked one bag an hour before flight and it did Not arrive with me. Lame"
Cons: "We were delayed 1 hr getting on the plane but then over another hour on the tarmac while they continued to work on a technical issue they already knew about. They should not have let anyone board until it was resolved. We have two small kids and it would have been much better to have them in the terminal for that extra hour of waiting."
Cons: "I was cold"
Pros: "comfortable"
Cons: "the touch tv screens did not work . they were hard to control and scroll. the controls are located on the worse place(the arm rest) my neighbor kept changing my channels and volume every time they put their arm on the arm rest."
Pros: "The flight was very smooth and had little turbulence."
Pros: "Free in-flight WiFi service for all travelers on the plane. Many onboard entertainment choices available using individual LCD screen display. Many selections of in-flight meals and beverages available for purchase during your flight. Online seat selection and online check-in were fast and efficient. Additional perks for travelers available online."
Cons: "There was no food included in my flight."
Pros: "JetBlue never fails, one of the best airlines around"
Pros: "Love having wifi, tv and movies. No delays on this flight, which means that I arrived earlier than published flight times."
Cons: "Look out for broken phone jacks."
Pros: "I liked how comfortable it was space wise even without getting the extra space seats."
Cons: "I didn’t like that there were issues with the plane so we got delayed. Wish the seats went back further than 2 inches."
Pros: "The fact that I arrived at my destination. Leg room seemed above average."
Cons: "The plane was delayed for 40 minutes for no stated reason. The plane was antiquated with broken screen controls on the arm rest and tiny, low-quality screens. My buttons didn't work so I couldn't even turn the screen off for the duration of the flight let alone gain access to entertainment. I had to use my night mask so that I atleast didn't have to stare at Amazon advertisements for 5 hours straight on a broken screen. This was not a good introduction to JetBlue, and I would likely not fly them again. Not competitive to the quality or amenities of a major carrier. I wish I had read reviews of this company because delays and non-working equipment seem the norm for JetBlue."
Pros: "More room. Genuinely nice steward staff"
Cons: "Have to pay for a blanket. Snacks sold in packs rather than individual things."
Pros: "We pulled out a few min early and arrived 40 min early! Was great. Very smooth trip. Wifi very good compared to other airlines."
Cons: "A woman at the gate made me check my bag even though I know it fits in the overhead compartment because I do it all the time. We landed late and I had planned on not having to wait for luggage, so this was disappointing."
Pros: "We were running a bit late for our flight, so the employee at the check-in counter made sure we checked in as soon as possible! He even checked in an extra bag free of charge, so we could go trough security faster! Greatly appreciated!"
Cons: "My in-flight entertainment system didn't work. Even though they offered me a voucher for the troubles, it made my flight a bit boring."
Pros: "Everything from the crew being super accomodating and friendly to the comfort and taste of the food was delicious."
Cons: "Swiss Air from Athens to Zurich stellar—excellent service, seating, food—but left one hour late due to air traffic. Nearly missed connecting Edelweiss flight—and that flight was just terrible. Passengers behind me constantly kicking, pulling my seat—wouldn’t allow me to put seat in recline position."
Pros: "Both the flight crew and the flight attendants were great. It was the smoothest landing I have had it quite dome time"
Cons: "Legspace in economy class was probably good back in 1975, but in 2019 not acceptable anymore"
Pros: "Seat was comfortable, food was very good."
Pros: "I thought my out flight with Lufthansa would be good but it was surpassed by the return flight with Swiss Based on my experience I believe Swiss should be a 5 star airline as well"
Cons: "A slight delay"
Pros: "The BUD-ZRH flight was on Swissair aircraft, not on Edelweiss or another low cost feeder airline. Over the years, I have flown both options, and while Edelweiss is a fine carrier, Swissair flights are still a cut above. Contributing to the positive experience was the friendly agent at check-in at BUD."
Pros: "The loveliest crew possible and the easiest and most efficient connection logistics imaginable! Full praise for Swiss Air"
Pros: "-"
Cons: "Old plane, rude crew, checked bag was not included in price. I did fly Swiss to LA last year and it was amazing, i don’t know what happened since."
Pros: "Best trip ever, flight crew fantastic. Great hospitality from the crew, pleasant and very personable. Will definitely fly Swiss Air again."
Cons: "They lost our bags for the second time in 4 days. Both originating flights were late starting and made for impossible connections! Is Swiss ever on time? Frustrating for sure!"
Pros: "Seat was ok, crew was friendly"
Cons: "Movie options were limited"
Pros: "Crew was great. Ice cream was fun. Swiss chocolate was a nice surprise!"
Cons: "Short flight with no entertainment, no means to charge devices."
Pros: "Flights attendant proficinal , food was great , first time experience ice cream on airplane served. Seats are comfy and wide , much space between seats compare with other airlines."
Cons: "Nothing"
Cons: "I had paid a little extra to have a seat in the back of the plane going to Greece and returning also. I was under the assumption the extra charge would give me a seat with only one extra person next to me. On both flights to and from JFK I was seated in a row with 3 seats and not the last row as promised. Just wondering if a refund for the extra charge would be possible."
Pros: "New plane"
Cons: ""Swiss" and punctuality are not anymore going together"
Pros: "Food and entertainment"
Cons: "Ithe check in counter was open about an hour before departure, having passengers waiting in line for almost two hours. Thhe departure was later than scheduled, I did ask for assistance in Zurich airport and got none. Almost missed my connection flight due to poor health conditions and less than expected lay over time."
Pros: "All very comfortable"
Cons: "It was delayed"
Cons: "The flight was delayed by 85 minutes from Newark to Zurich"
Pros: "The hospitality & staff were impeccable."

Pros: "I was concerned the connections would be too tight but it worked out great!"
Pros: "Crew was great."
Cons: "My wife is strictly Hindu vegetarian. We had entered her food choice at Swiss web site months before. She didn't get the food while going to Zurich and coming back to Boston. She remained hungry both ways. Although we were in business class while coming."
Pros: "The food provided and the service was excellent."
Cons: "The space between the seats are super small and uncomfortable. For a long flight you can barely sleep and your legs hurt after a while."
Pros: "The flight attendants seemed very courteous, but unable to do anything about the situation."
Cons: "We had a family of four sitting behind us. The father yelled all the time. They took up four overhead bins and he was frequently up and down getting things out of the bins. His very hairy large belly was touching my daughters head every time. He and his children punched the backs of our seats on a regular basis. My back was in constant pain and I was unable to do very many things due to the back pain during my "vacation", The flight attendants had to remind the parents that their children could not stand on the seats during takeoff or crawl around under the seats. No ability to change seats or I would have. I didn't have a problem with the other children on the flight, when they were crying their parents tried to do something. However these people brought playdough for their child to roll out or punch on the seat tray and all they did was constantly yell loudly at their children, Well not about the kicking, punching, or crawling around. Just yell in general at them."

Pros: "crew very nice and helpful. great service. food was very good and good portions. very nice entertainment system."

Pros: "The whole experience was excellent didnt hv to wait long for luggage"
Cons: "Pressure to make connecting flight"
Cons: "A gap between flights for 20 hours"
Pros: "The food,crew and flight were flawless. Our flight scheduling had us connecting within a thirty minute period in zurich and we had to run to catch the flight. Probably would have missed the connection if our 26 year old son didn't run ahead. Too much drama and no one from swiss air to help. Suggest more time for transfer in the future or someone to guide passengers. We were nit the only ones. However, we did make it as did the others ( luggage too!)so kudos to swiss for waiting"
Pros: "zurich a great airport."
Cons: "cheese roll"
Pros: "Friendly and attentive staff, plenty of good food and beverages. Comfortable seats"
Cons: "There wasn't anything bad"
Pros: "Crew was very helpful with getting me "something" to eat since I did not receive a "Vegan" meal as I had ordered when I bought the flight... The meal I originally was given was included milk and cheese ingredients and after explaining what vegan actually was they did their best to help my situation. My first flight with Swiss to Switzerland included the correct "vegan" meal do I can't understand how this mistake was made by Swiss on the return flight?"
Cons: "I did not receive a "vegan" meal as ordered originally and though they were very helpful they should all be better educated regarding the differences between "Vegan", Vegetsrian, Lacto-Ovo, etc... Since I was embarrassed as I had to keep rejecting the food they gave me until I educated them on the basics of what Vegan food is... They were very helpful throughout."
Pros: "The food"
Cons: "Same comments as above."
Pros: "On time, efficient, good service, professional"
Pros: "Brand new plane, with ultra modern seating. We had a lot of room."
Cons: "We sat in the plane for 40 minutes before takeoff"
Pros: "that they had new movies"
Cons: "the leg space is non existent, few of the seat dont even recline meanwhile some recline more than normal"
Cons: "No where was it mentioned that the fair doesn’t include check in item. I had to pay Euro 30 extra."
Pros: "The crew was very attentive and accommodating."
Pros: "1. The crew was very friendly and polite. 2. The food was good. 3. Service was good."
Cons: "The flight is long. It will be good to have an area in the plane for some physical exercises. Sitting motionless during long time is not healthy for everybody."
Pros: "I enjoyed the service provided once we boarded the plane."
Cons: "The plane was delayed for over 5 hours. The transfer desk crew was not the most welcoming staff. Very rude."
Pros: "Crew let me sleep!"
Cons: "nothing to report since I slept!"
Pros: "At Montreal I was made to go through the customs, exit the airport, get the boarding pass, go through security check again. I was subjected to unnecessary hassle as Air Canada did not issue me boarding pass for the section of Motreal to Zurich at Los Angeles airport. Had I known that I have to come out of the airport, I would not have bought this ticket. Hopefully same ordeal is not repeated while returning from Zurich to Los Angeles via Montreal on June 30, 2016. There was a long queque at Montreal to board the place as it was not organized in zone wise."
Pros: "Cabin Service was excellent."
Cons: "OMG the seats are so close together it's very uncomfortable in coach. If the person in front leans back forget it. Not enough room for average sized person. Forget about it if you're a big person."
Cons: "They didn't let me on the flight because I'm disabled pure discrimination"
Pros: "Good was OK and crew were super attentive"
Cons: "On my return ticket from Vancia to SFO staff at the counter forced me to check in my carry on because it was 1 inch wider than the super narrow box and 11 kg instead of 8 kg which is allowed. However in the inbound trip SFO Valencia l was able to carry the very same carry one with the same weight on the plane. First, it's not acceptable to limit carryon to 8 kilograms for trips including transatlantic segments. I fly a lot with Delta / air France and they have higher limit as it should be. And second, criteria should be applied consostently across Swiss. Why is it no problem from SFO to Velalencia, but it is a problem from Valencia to SFO? Also, online check-in is horrendous and unacceptable in this day and age. SUPER slow and cracked a couple of times on my mobile device"
Pros: "The seating in upper class is unconventional and uncomfortable."
Cons: "Reconfigure seating in upper class. We will no longer be customers for that reason alone.."
Cons: "Nothing"
Cons: "They have to uptade the airplanes"
Pros: "My flight was canceled and Virgin Atlantic gave us a free room in the hotel Ramada. My next flight was at 18:55 and I asked Virgin Atlantic agent am I allowed to stay in the room until time for my flight comes, he confirmed yes and gave me breakfast, lunch, and dinner voucher. However, next day around 12 I got call from Front Desk that I have to leave my room right away because it's time to chack out and If I want to stay longer I have to pay. I called Virgin Atlantic agancy again and the agent run my information and said to me I can stayin the room longer. After that I called front desk to confirm that but they said they didn't hear anything from Virgin Atlantic and I have to leave the room by 1pm. All of this was really unpleasant!"
Cons: "I didn't like anything. I didn't like the communication between Virgin Atlantic with travelers, communication between Virgin Atlantic and hotel Ramada. Everything was really poorly."
Pros: "A smoothtrip run by great staff."
Cons: "Thé food was rather stodgy overall."
Pros: "The ground staff was on top of it and the boarding process was smooth, but the cabin crew was brilliant. I’ve never had such pleasant service on a western airline. Well done. Entertainment system is top-notch, and the food was acceptable."
Cons: "The booking process and paying for luggage is disappointing. Plus, I paid a $90 upgrade and just moved up two rows in the same section. Sneaky."
Pros: "Top glass airline"
Cons: "I lake food and good service crew"
Pros: "Although we were badly delayed the cabin service was excellent in every way. Good meal , cheerful staff and well turned out."
Cons: "I did not like the fact that my seat was between 2 small children that belonged to a family sitting behind me .It was ridiculous to put a stranger on a 10 hour flight with a 3yrar old on one side and a 5 year old on the other"
Pros: "Staff on this flight were excellent"
Pros: "2 bags each 23 kilogram each total 46"
Cons: "Coffee. I don't know what it was but the worst coffee I have ever had and I tried it 3 times"
Pros: "Nothing. The whole experience was horrible."
Cons: "I didn't make it to Siem Reap because the first leg of the trip from IAD to London was cancelled by Virgin Atlantic after it was fully boarded. The excuse was that a flight attendant had food poisoning and was unable to fly and so the entire flight was cancelled. The Virgin team seemed unconcerned and showed NO sense of urgency to try and get people rebooked. Their solution was to rebook everyone on an evening flight the next day. If a passenger was only going to London, that was probably fine. But for people with connecting flights -- or like me with multiple connecting flights -- that wasn't acceptable."
Pros: "Overall comfortable journey"
Cons: "No option to book food option 24 hours before as could check in could not been done earlier than 24 hours before flight. I logged exactly 24 hrs before filled in details which took a few minutes by that time said too late to book special meal."
Cons: "It was terribly late. No one had a clue on when flight would depart."
Pros: "The entertainment selection was good, though I didn't need to see the blurb about having vloggers available before every movie. One of the very few airlines to use boarding by rows, which speeds up the boarding process."
Cons: "The legroom is very cramped, pretty difficult to eat your meal with the seat in front reclined. The crew were not very attentive: they completely missed me while I was waving the rubbish on their collection rounds. In the end I had to dump it myself in the toilet bins. The PA system is too loud compared to the rest of the entertainment, had to remove the headphones for each one of them."
Pros: "Check in was very smooth with very friendly staff. On board crew was very welcoming and service was excellent."
Cons: "Aircraft configuration of the 787-9 was very poor with 9 seats abreast making the seats very cramped and very poor leg room."
Pros: "Even it was a 12-13hrs flight, I had been my best flight ever in a long flight. Virgin really exeeced my expectations."
Cons: "given milk yoghurt with VGML breakfast"
Pros: "From the check in to the service on board was very good. Staff were polite and respectful."
Cons: "The food was small. There did not serve bread with the meal"
Pros: "I liked that the boarding went really fast and the staff at the JFK airport was super nice and helpful."
Cons: "I didn't like how rude the airplane crew was and how useless and unhappy they were. The sits were very uncomfortable and the food didn't have any taste."
Pros: "A large selection of movies, shows and music to choose from. Flight crews were attentive and friendly."
Cons: "The narrow space between each rows for passengers to move from their seats."
Cons: "Very small leg room"
Pros: "Everything!"
Cons: "One toilet not working"
Pros: "Just the food and boarding was fine."
Cons: "Everything else was bad. I think crew were a little rude!"
Pros: "Food"
Cons: "Seat reclining happens even during meal time and landing! I had to ask crew to get passenger in front to put seat back upright during meal time!!! Crew should've noticed themselves and ask the passenger without my prompting!! So annoyed!! I complained to VA too"
Pros: "From check in to landing in London, the gracious, helpful crew impressed us with their attitude and service"
Cons: "Sound didn't work on some of the entertainment choices"
Pros: "airline staff was helpful, friendly and accommodating from ticket check in to flight staff."
Pros: "The food was surprisingly ok and the seats in PE were comfortable, plus there were two USB ports, perfect!"
Cons: "Being woken up to be asked if I wanted to eat, twice! If I wanted to eat, I wouldn't have a sleeping mask on my face, or be asleep! Plus, upper class and premium economy didn't board first."
Pros: "They were were very kind and helpful to all passengers"
Pros: "Genuinely pleasant cabin crew, good service, good food."
Cons: "Virgin Upper Class seats are cramped, with very limited stowage space. Turning the seat into a lay flat bed (and returning it seat at the end of the flight) takes some effort--not the simplest of processes. I'm not tall, but my feet protruded into the aisle so I was being disturbed whilst sleeping. Seat is also quite narrow--feels quite claustrophobic when sleeping."
Pros: "Still a more pleasant experience than BA but others have overtaken. Crew make a difference though."
Cons: "Limo service wasn't great in China - asked for address of hotel - a major international chain and confusion on booking details"
Pros: "The service went a mile farther. It is my favourite airlines!"
Pros: "New Dreamliner aircraft was very comfortable with loads of leg room for a tall person like myself at 1.76m"
Cons: "My seat was directly under the aircon and it was blowing very cold all night which made it quite uncomfortable. Fortunately I had an extra blanket which I could wrap over my head."
Pros: "The boarding and the overall flight experience was quite good."
Cons: "There were movie options such as Sully and Deepwater Horizon, which I think are unsuitable for flights. Overall, the movie options could have had more variety."
Pros: "Smiling and helpful staff Great FREE food and drinks good movies Free goodie bag of travel goods, blanket, pillow etc Free candy for landing descent"
Cons: "Leg room is a little tight"
Pros: "The crew,food and entertainment the food has improved, the ground and flight staffs was very pleasant and helpful"
Cons: "We were flying to Miami, then into a cruise,weighs restrictions,we were find a100 dollars for a couple more kg, we were on holiday for nearly three weeks"
Cons: "Crew"
Pros: "Very professional crew throughout."
Pros: "The crew left my breakfast in the sear next to me because I was asleep (unfortunately i didn't notice till I started to disembark...)"
Cons: "I couldn't get comfortable enough to sleep very well, even though I was in a window seat (which I can normally lean on)."
Pros: "Friendly crew and good food"

Cons: "Plane cramped"
Pros: "Everything was great ! The staff very nice and the plane is absolutely amazing .."
Cons: "We paid for extra leg but there was no difference between normal and extra .."
Pros: "Mostly everything was fine."
Cons: "Not really anything particularly that I didn't like."
Pros: "I loved wine and whiskey. Blanket and blindfolds, headphones helped me sleep. Care packet with toothbrush came in handy."
Cons: "The Sears were tight and thin. I felt pushes from behind. I could not recline the seat enough. I didn't get a window seat, which is my favorite."
Pros: "We were late arriving at the airport and the checkin desk people were SO nice putting us through. Otherwise we never would have made it on the flight. Also the extra legroom seats were well worth it!"
Cons: "Nothing!"
Pros: "The food has improved."
Cons: "Flight turned back after an hour. Held in HK for 24 hours. Dreamliner no big sea change in air transport. Economy still uncomfortable and cramped. Crew give the impression of being bossy and aloof, I saw them making faces behind someone's back. Emirates crew are so much more helpful and pleasant."
Pros: "At JFK the lounge and service was the best I have encountered."
Pros: "The crew."
Cons: "No wifi was absolutely aggravating. Seat space was bad as well - very little leg room."
Pros: "Entertainment options excellent. Very happy to have my own row seat (exit row)."
Cons: "Snack options (goldfish, biscotti cookie) getting tired."
Cons: "The seat and area around me on this early morning flight were trashy-- old cups of cheese spread, cracker crumbs, and an empty water bottle."

Pros: "Smooth and fast."

Cons: "Chose my seat, instead of leaving it to the airline ."
Pros: "Crew was great"

Pros: "Crew, exit row seat"
Cons: "Bathroom"
Pros: "The crew was wonderful, the food was great, the ride was wonderful."
Pros: "Love Delta. They will always be my #1 choice."

Pros: "That we finally arrived."
Cons: "That we didn't arrive even remotely close to when we were supposed to."
Pros: "Are usually fly international, and I really enjoy it. Flying domestic inside the US is bad because you never know when you will get flight delays, like we got. It wasn’t the fault of Delta, but it sucked."
Cons: "Small seeds, no food, the flight delay"
Pros: "crew was nice and pilot was informative."
Cons: "1. flight was delayed twice, which meant my arrive was delayed in Cincinnati. 2. boarding was a nightmare. After 2 delays, I was crammed into zone 4. I dont fly as often, the seats space seems to be getting smaller. 5. I sat next an overweight person. I didn't like my personal space violated. 6. The flight offer movies, I slept. Yet kept getting elbowed by this overweight neighbor. 7. I am a single, independent person. I prefer to sit near the front. First on and settled and 1st off and gone!"
Pros: "Everyone was very friendly, especially when checking in"
Cons: "It was a 1.5 hour late leaving San Diego (6am flight), one of three bathrooms out, no coffee or tea (wtf?), we circled Atlanta for an hour, ran out of gas, landed in Pensacola, no information, missed the flight to DC ... And it's not even noon"
Pros: "Great crew on board!"
Pros: "Courteous staff."
Cons: "Having to check a firearm inside and having it looked at by non-tsa personnel."

Pros: "Pilot flew flawless crew kind and helpful it was a full flight and impressed helpful passengers to get on board was."
Cons: "Disappointed airplane not equipped with free movies. I bought ear buds on return flight for that purpose"
Cons: "I forgot my wired ear phone so I purchased the earphone. I knew i shouldn't expected anything for $2 but really I couldn't hear anything at all to watch the movie. It's used to be free, now even paid the quality of the stuff is really suck."
Pros: "On time boarding in Seattle."
Cons: "Delayed in Los Angeles for about an hour. Checked on flight tracker and this flight is consistently delayed 20-40 minutes. Why hasn't Delta done anything to improve this?"
Pros: "The short flight was fine. Crew was friendly."
Cons: "Because we arrived to LAX from SAN so late we had to run to the next gate and barely made the flight. The overhead bins were already very full so we had to stuff our stuff at our feet. Since we arrived so late it would have been better if they had allowed those with a tight connection to disembark first."
Pros: "Flight attrndants on delta are mostly ok-- but there are several with bad attitudes who cannot communicate They will just point at things and mumble incoherently with incomplete sentences They will not turn there hips when walking down the aisle to avoid hitting people & they"

Pros: "What is the issue?"
Pros: "Staff were all polite"

Pros: "Very easy flight & process"

Cons: "There was no wifi on flight"
Cons: "We were allowed to choose our seats from SFO to Amsterdam but not for the return flight. I like to be able to choise my seats when I book the flight. Choosing seats 24 hours before is not convenient when traveling for the return trip."

Pros: "The entertainment options were good."
Cons: "Flight was cancelled."
Pros: "Able to fly direct to ansterdam"
Cons: "Have to lay over on the way back. More expensive than other airlines."
Pros: "We got a meal for a 1h flight only"
Cons: "No entertainment but normal for this type of flight"
Pros: "We are guessing they either overbooked or they didn't have sufficient passengers on a Tuesday afternoon who's final stop was Glasgow. They rebooked him for 1200 the next day. DFW to MN, St Paul to Schipole, Amsterdam to final destination, Glasgow. So he ends up having to pay for another Lyft back to our apartment in Dallas, then another additional one for the 12 noon flight the next morning. If he didn't have family living in Dallas, he would've incurred a hotel fee too."
Cons: "He was bumped to the next day due to his flight being cancelled. Then re-booked the next day, with an additional layover. Then due to a 32 minute layover that left 3 minutes sooner..."
Cons: "Unaccompanied minor flying to Lisbon overnight. Bag was lost. No real effort to assist. Bags of unaccompanied minor should be treated with priority."
Pros: "The time keeping was very good. We left on time and arrived early on both occasion. Good organisation. Excellent service."
Cons: "Nothing"
Cons: "Crowded seating, 20-year old video system, headphones that did not match the two-jack system, lackluster service in flight. Generally my experience with KLM has been good, but this was well below average."
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: "Nothing"
Pros: "Very friendly crew"
Pros: "The cabin crew were good. They explained what the arrangements were for the delayed flight connections"
Cons: "The plane wasn't refueled and so was not ready for take off once the passengers were loaded. The plane had a technical problem when it tried the first take off and so it had to be abandoned. This was alarming.."
Pros: "Everything. A truly faultless experience!"
Cons: "Nothing"
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"
Cons: "Old airplane with not really comfy seats. No outlets for charging devices. Very old entertainment screen."
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."
Pros: "Of the multiple international airlines I recently flew with, I would have to say KLM was by far the best. Relaxing atmosphere, comfortable seating, great in-flight entertainment, although I have the go-go in-flight data/entertainment plan with t-mobile (highly recommended), the flight included a decent selection of movies, television programs, etc. The food far exceeded typical "airline quality," even for an international flight - and included a fabulous little snack box with locally sourced gourmet and specialty items such as chocolate from Belgium, fine cheeses from France, and crackers from England. Drinks = gratis, and crew was exceptionally attentive and went out of their way to make flight as pleasant as possible."
Cons: "Nothing."
Pros: "It was so easy to board and I had no inconvenience. It took 4 minutes from when I said goodbye to my family till when I was at the front of the gate."
Cons: "Nothing! It was all great!"
Cons: "Our flight was canceled from Amsterdam to Bordeaux and did not receive any direction and had to find alternate flights for ourselves with the personal expense of using our own cell phones. Then our luggage lost for 3 days. Not happy!"
Cons: "Pet was left behind at vacation destination as pet's reservation (made and confirmed through KLM) was not found at check in. Waiting for Customer Care to help get pet home and take responsibility for situation and getting no response. Very dissapointed, considering law suit."
Pros: "Night flight so no entertainment allowed sleeping"
Cons: "Kosher food could be improved"
Cons: "I requested low fat meals. The first one, was OK. But they forgot my request for the second one."
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."
Cons: "Quite bummed that the flight didn't have wifi / USB):"
Pros: "Excellent service"
Cons: "Having to pay extra to pick a seat prior to check-in. I didn't, and got a decent seat anyway."
Pros: "A nice short flight"
Cons: "We had booked business on our flight to Milan, and it was extremely disappointing that on this sector they put us on the last seat in the back of the plane. There were plent of seats on this flight that had extended legroom. A bit of a mystery, why Westjet elected to put usin the last seats on the plane?"
Pros: "Plane service"
Cons: "1h30min delay at airport"
Cons: "Completely none sense to change the time of départure (30 min earlier) with just a simple email 24h before and w/o sending a text on mobile phone."
