Airline reviews

Cons: "Information on when we can check in on upcoming flights. Other airlines we have booked for flights will email us 24 hours prior to departure. Virgin Atlantic did not. I had to call and I was directed to their web site and was able to check in on line. Thanks"

Pros: "Crew was great !!!"
Cons: "Seating in upper class is uncomfortable and bedding is not fresh."

Pros: "the crew was very polite and professional."
Cons: "the aircraft is small and confined, only two toilets for the entire economy level passengers for a 6 hour flight. the online entertainment lacks variety and the food was okay."

Pros: "Crew was super helpful and kind. Pesto pasta was the best airplane food I’ve ever had in coach."

Pros: "Karl was amazing! So helpful and sweet!"

Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "More leg room"

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

Pros: "Must be a coincidence only... But was lucky to have 3 seats all for myself as the plane was underbooked. Would have given them 4 of 5 if not for the 3 hr flight delay."
Cons: "Plane was delayed for 3 hrs. That's a bummer."

Pros: "Food was great. Friendly stas staff."
Cons: "LAX AIRPORT signage leaves something to be desired. Nothing to do with airline."

Pros: "Movies. Meals. Wine. Freq"

Pros: "Staff. Very couteous.polite. friendly."
Cons: "Good.entertainment choices."

Pros: "Crew were great"
Cons: "Uncomfortable to sit for eight hours"

Pros: "Everything was as or better than expected. Did not have high expectations, because price was so much less than other airlines. Crew was friendly. Was pleasantly surprised all was good. Was expecting extra fees, (from reading reviews) but had none. Virgin checked bags all the way through, even though tickets were unrelated (and my online checkin said I would have to recheck baggage for second flight)."
Cons: "Seats are small in economy. I was lucky it was not a full flight, so I had two seats. The entertainment system was a. It confusing to manage, but the choices were good. Food was ok; but not worse than would expect."

Pros: "Free drinks! Lots of food and good entertainment. Glad to have a free blanket and headphones as well."
Cons: "Economy seating wasn’t that comfortable"

Pros: "love the lounge and easy check in and boarding, great attendants and smooth trip"
Cons: "would be nice if lounge was open earlier - arrived for 8:30am flight and had to wait around in freezing cold terminal with no coffee for an hour"

Cons: "Leg room and space was great but the seats could use some more cushion."

Cons: "They switched my gate 5 times and lost my baggage."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "My flight was cancelled on Christmas Day, but we had to stand in line to wait to get onto another flight on another airline. They were so slow that the flight they tried to put everyone left and then they offered ZERO assistance to get another flight and wouldn’t even refund my ticket, just told me after waiting 3 hours to call whoever I booked with for a refund."

Pros: "Quite a big choice of movies and TV shows to watch, more than enough for an eight hour flight. Normal headphone plugs so you can use your own."
Cons: "I booked together with my wife, yet we were allocated seats apart and were not able to be reassigned together. The leg room was so tight that I could not pick up things off the floor without putting my head in the next persons lap. Though the cabin crew were smiley and friendly, it was hard to get their attention when needed. The PA system is much louder than the entertainment, so announcements were ear bursting. The dinner selections ran out early, so a good proportion did not get their choice."

Cons: "Food was terrible"

Cons: "After 14 hours the seats were like sitting on spikes"

Pros: "I was very impressed by the generosity you show concerning food och drink. the staff was kind and glad."
Cons: "I never understood how to connect the earphones to the screen so I couldn't ser any movie. But - I could have asked the staff of course ..."

Pros: "Good notification re a 30 Minute delay. Obtaining board passes was a breeze and love where I can save the passes to my wallet on my mobile device. Flight crews were helpful, cheerful and professional."
Cons: "With seats being so tight causing an issue when getting in and out of seats."

Pros: "The flight was late but the pilots made up most of the time"
Cons: "Uncomfortable seats"

Pros: "the crew were the friendliest I've flown with (Irish & British)... the lighting was very relaxing and the continuous snack service was much appreciated (especially ice cream).. gonna try premium economy next time as the seats looked even better..."
Cons: "Vera the entertainment screen was very good but there were no newly released movies, everything seemed to be a couple of months old... the leather headrest was comfortable but kept slipping down to behind my neck, would be nice if it was lockable in position.."

Cons: "My headphones and those of my neighbors did not work."

Cons: "One toilet not working"

Pros: "My flight was delayed boarding, Entertainment wasn't exciting oppose to other Virgin flights I have taken in previous years. Food wasn't great. I had teriyaki chicken with rice and I left it. Big dislike - when I was checking in online I found some economy seats I couldn't allocate for my seating due to additional charge applies. I think this is very off putting as I have been a Virgin member for years and it is very disappointing."
Cons: "I liked the Airbus carrier which had only two seats (window and Isle) on each sides oppose to three. It felt more comfortable."

Pros: "Makes travels to LAX a little easier for us dedicated Virgin Melbourne folk. Can. Ow fly direct to LAX without going through Brisbane and Sydney. Food was great. Boarding seemed a little slow. Flight was smooth and on time. Welcome back Virgin."

Pros: "comfort, entertainment, food"
Cons: "nothing"

Pros: "Virgin has the nicest staff, good food, and excellent movie options. I had a great time on my flight!"

Cons: "If the luggage fees were to be included in the price, I would have gladly chosen Emirates for its comfort at that price."

Cons: "More than one hour delated"

Pros: "Wifi worked very well"
Cons: "Jave to pay for everything on an overseas flight"

Pros: "Staff was friendly and welcoming."
Cons: "There was nothing not to like."

Pros: "Flight attendants were nice."
Cons: "Was denied the seat with extra legroom that my husband had paid for. One of my suitcases (zipper) opened on the conveyor belt, maybe it was tossed?"

Pros: "The whole flight was great quick boarding, lots of leg room, good entertainment, a USB charge port, good lighting, and the crew was very nice and helpful. I enjoyed the flight and would like to fly Virgin Atlantic more. Finally, you are the 3rd best flight, I have ever take, and the 2nd best airline I've been on. Flew Business Class on Swiss Air once to Geneva (#1) and all the flights I have had with Porter Air are comparable to your airline, but the free cookies and beverages at Porter's terminal in Toronto wonderful."
Cons: "A couple things went wrong on this trip, my checked luggage got misplaced for a day, and a nice women in baggage claim told me what was happening and a nice man handled my claim and my bag has now been returned to me. The bigger thing is my flight bas delayed taking off by 3 hours. Let me start that I would rather have a part replaced on the runway then not, safety is paramount. The fact is my flight took off 3 hours late from London (VS11), and got to my destination (BOS) 2.5 hours late. Kudos to the flight crew for getting me to my destination faster by gaining a little time. Plus, since BOSTON was my final destination it was all fine this time. But if I had had to get home to the elder person I take care of or my teenager it would been a problem. Again, I'm annoyed, but I do understand the reasons and they are valid and preferred. I have heard that airlines to keep their flight rating high, wait for planes to leave the gate on time and then do repairs on the tarmac. If this is still a SOP for airlines you should change the way the statistics are collected and figure out a way of not perpetuating this type of disincentive. This is just hypothesis on my part, and my whole trip had little negatives."

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: "Professionalism value of service"
Cons: "let me think...."

Pros: "The comfort of the flight and entertainment."
Cons: "My bag was not put on the correct flight so I had no bag for 3 days, they were slow in getting my bag to Bali from Sydney. It was really unacceptable. I talked to 5 different people to make sure my bag was put on the correct plane, even asked before boarding if it was on and they said yes.The food was horrible, I only ate it because I was starving. Flight was delayed from Sydney to Bali, which caused me to miss my pick up. Not sure if I'll fly with them again."

Pros: "Great food/service/options, nice crew, on-time/early"
Cons: "Entertainment system is quite aged, but selections were OK"

Pros: "nothing"
Cons: "My ticket was cancelled at the time I was standing in front of the airline counter to check my bag. I was so furious. The airline did not help me at ALL. In fact, they offer me to buy a brand new ticket at a new price!!!!!! I ended up re-bought the ticket from United airline as my husband has United card (chase) and we ended up paying over 1900 for the ticket that should have been about $911. The priceline number is not helping. I have trip insurance but no. nothing worked. I will never fly Virgin Atlantic again."

Pros: "Virgin always provides the best, friendliest, coolest service!"
Cons: "The food is pretty low quality, but I understand the logistics constraints of feeding many people in a small space without kitchen facilities! Also the wine choices are superior to other airlines and I look forward to that. I normally plan ahead and bring my own meals whenever traveling by air."

Pros: "Extra room and fast boarding"
Cons: "Food"

Cons: "Stop charging $2 for headphones lol"

Pros: "Handing by any cap was great to get us on the plane on time."
Cons: "The plane we got on time to board was delayed enough to miss our connecting flight, so delayed another 3 hours when missing the next flight."

Cons: "- No room in the seats - No food served on plane - Crowded -"

Pros: "Staff was attentive and pleasant. Seat was comfortable, good knee room. Left and arrived on-time. Good experience."
Cons: "Reclining seats need to either go away, or be built so that reclining takes leg room away from the person reclining. Why should I be punished for a rude passenger in front of me who decides to punish me by reclining their seat?"

Pros: "comfortable seats enough overhead bin space."
Cons: "nothing"

Pros: "Got me to my destination, just not comfortably"
Cons: "Seating is ridiculously cramped and overhead storage is small"

Pros: "Flight ifself was okay once on the plane"

Pros: "Good clean aircraft. Fairly comfortable seats. Even had a power outlet in my row. Not too bad for an aircraft from the late 70s."

Virgin Australia contatcted out their flight from SJC to LAX through Delta and Delta cancelled flights becaue no-show of Pilot to operate the plan. What a Joke???? We asked them to put us through another carrier to LAX for connecting flight they refused.Very very BAD. It was a big miss for us.. never again Delta/Virgin Australia.............."

Cons: "First class seat was broken was reclined and super uncomfortable the whole flight the plane was super outdated and old."

Oh yeah and they announced the wrong arrival gate too. I'll never fly Delta again. There are better airlines that treat customers with more respect."

Pros: "Courtesy seating"

Pros: "Movie selection"
Cons: "They want us there at 4:20 for a 6:20am flight but Clear doesn't open until 5. I was through checkin by 4:23. Why bother if one can't get to the breakfast facilities for another half hour plus? Then Peet's had no pastries."

Pros: "Everything was just as I have come to expect -- efficient, polite, and courteous crewe"

Cons: "At least 10, including my entertainment systems didn't work as soon as we took off. A 4 1/2 hour flight cross country with no entertainment, very disappointing.

Seat headrests were not adjustable up and down."

Pros: "Direct from SJC, not crowded"
Cons: "Guy in front of me was reclined whole time and very little room like that."

Pros: "Once onboard the flight was excellent and trouble-free. The crew were efficient and pleasant to passengers. I must give a big credit to Lufthansa for its great on-board entertainment system and good quality screens."
Cons: "Boarding in San Jose: For the first time I saw a Lufthansa person physically checking the weight of cabin backage at the gate. This was was not very pleasant experience as he approached us asking questions why we had so much cabin baggage, when our children were in bathroom and assumed me and my wife had 4 pieces of baggage, when we had 1 each and then left without apologising."

Pros: "All trip was good."

Cons: "At the boarding que there was a Lufthansa employee singling out carry on bags for gate check, when they would clearly fit in the overhead. She addressed me and others in a curt and arguably rude tone of voice and mannerisms. No further instruction was given for the gate check process, hence I rolled the small suitcase to the entry of the aircraft, where the Purser asked why I would wish to check the bag. When I recounted the story, he chuckled and said, bring it aboard, there is no reason to check that bag."

Pros: "short and comfortable"

Pros: "I was comfortable, not affraid."

Cons: "I didn't like that I bought a bottle of perfume and they let me take it from Israel to Germany without a problem, and as soon as I got to Germany they trashed it saying that it should've been in a sealed bag, so 80$ went to trash or God knows where,,"

Pros: "All the services were great."
Cons: "Everything was perfect."

Pros: "Smooth Ride Stewardesses"

Cons: "I was denied boarding. No one told me that my passport had to be 6 mo. to expiration. Why the hell do you even put an expiration date if you're going to deny all travels prior to 6 months?"

Cons: "No issues."

I want to thank you personally from the bottom of my heart because it's very hard for me to send her overseas with her condition and no language. you guys awesome thank you very much again."

Pros: "we were treated like royalty"

Cons: "I had paid for an upgrade to sit in the front of the cabin with extra legroom (row 14A). When I boarded a man sat it my seat. He had not paid for the upgrade, but the crew let him stay in my seat. I had asked him to social distance but he continued to sit right behind me bo matter which seat I moved to. He argued with the crew until they gave up and let him stay. They did not check his boarding pass or ask him to move to his assigned seat I found a different seat away from him but I don’t see the point in paying for extra legroom when the crew let’s people who haven’t paid for it sit it those seats. I felt harassed by the man and was very uncomfortable the whole flight. I am considering my next step, I think I should at least receive a refund for the upgrade I paid for."

Cons: "infotainment was down. Lost my luggage the flight was delayed"

Cons: "Not that I cared at the time but having been asked for a rating on “entertainment” - there was none. Cheap and cheerful really. No extras over the likes of RyanAir."

Pros: "Decent seat size. Sorta slept the whole flight."

Pros: "Airlines issue"
Cons: "Profiling certain customers"

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

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: "una valija se perdió. Eso desató el descontrol que tiene KLM para seguir el equipaje. No hay como hacer tracking. No hay un teléfono a donde hablar, la web está desactualizada y con información equivocada. Direccionan a usar canales de twitter y facebook que no responden. Primer experiencia en KLM y no pienso nunca más usar esta aerolínea. Llevar el equipaje o resolver un problema sobre valijas es de lo más básico de una aerolínea y no lo hacen."

Cons: "Two hours delay in the start."

Cons: "OLD OLD plane with hard seats and tiny screens"

Pros: "Eveything is well arranged"
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "Not only was there free food but they tried to sell you a bunch of stuff. Not a moments piece."

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."

Pros: "Wonderful"

Pros: "Service was good"
Cons: "Delay"

Pros: "Flight unpleasant. Ground staff in Marseiile great but gate crew didn't control carry on baggage and many of us could not use overhead bins because of passengers who stowed more than one and often oversized suitcases above, so we and many others had to place carry on suitcases under seat. Attendant on plane totally unhelpful and could have rearranged a few bags to make room but preferred to stay in back of plane and talk. To be fair, rest of flight was pleasant although late due in part to boarding issues."
Cons: "Carry on baggage issues and storage on plane. One aloof and unhelpful member of flight crew."

Cons: "sardines!"

Pros: "The flight crew were kind, polite, and attentive."
Cons: "Bussing to the plane was a bit odd, but the crew remained organized in doing so. When we arrived to the plane, they had both entrances open so that those sitting near the rear of the plane would enter from the back. Plane was a little chilly, but I have come to expect that one most flights."

Pros: "Smooth boarding. Good food. Decent leg room at my seat. Good crew. Flight was on time. Good magazine on the flight for entertainment."
Cons: "They didn't give any napkins out with the food which was weird."

Pros: "Even for this short flight, drinks and sandwich was provided staff were efficient and friendly"

Cons: "Since we had two extra bags (paid for in Chicago), they demanded to see my receipt before we could board in Amsterdam to Nairobi. We had trouble locating the receipt and we were not given an explanation as to why we needed it again. We were traveling with 5 kids including an infant and we were not allowed to board until we found the receipt. I thought surely they would have record that I had paid, but I guess not. We were the last to board and all very stressed out. The staff seemed not to care the least in our troubles."

Pros: "Crew asked us if we’d like to move to an empty row to be more comfortable without us even requesting it."
Cons: "Bigger coffee cups? Really nothing to complain about. Everything I would expect from a flight. A++"

Pros: "Cops is always a good reason to flight"
Cons: "They always change the gates, also too many disorders in the gate previous the boarding process, the process it is not clean. They took hand baggage aleatory to send to down and do not ask if we have fragile stuffs there."

Cons: "2 hours delays from LAX to CDG then additional two hours delay from CDG to CAI, this is disappointing"

Pros: "Amazing crew and on time flight"
Cons: "None"

Pros: "Crew was attentive. Timings were spot on."
Cons: "Virtually no information at boarding which made everybody just make a huge line. Boarding they a bus, it was raining and we got wet."

Pros: "All went right namely the seats but the luggage condition is the worst"
Cons: "Air France is not a low fare airlines, I had to pay 225 USD against 3 luggages which is not acceptable. We should have the right for one luggage per ticket as all other airlines. If I knew this will happen, I wouldn’t use Air France and this will be the last time I buy a ticket on Air France"

Cons: "CDG airport in Paris is a very inefficient and by far the slowest airport. I recommend other passengers to get to the airport at least 4 hours before their departure."

Pros: "The crew was amazing and extremely helpful!"
Cons: "The food could have been better"

Pros: "Crew great."

Pros: "Arrived on time."
Cons: "Overhead luggage storage jammed with luggage belonging to someone who was sitting far behind my seat."

Pros: "Average crew. Average seat."
Cons: "They could have controlled screening babies better. They just let them scream....."

Pros: "The cue lines per zone are a brilliant idea!"

Pros: "The crew"
Cons: "Seats! They were too small!"

Pros: "The crew was amazingly helpful. My son was having some anxiety and they went out their way to make him comfortable. They were the best!"

Cons: "Two hour delay meant we missed our connection. Then given a very late flight and had to haggle for ages to get earlier flight and told we should pay extra for it!"

Pros: "The crew was very gentile."
Cons: "No enterteinment on the plane."

Pros: "Food and entertainment was awesome"
Cons: "It's awfull to sleep. Very unconfortable."

Pros: "Crew was nice although one fellow was a little too “nervous” and looked bossy"
Cons: "Food was awful. Asked for vegan meal they got it half right, as vegan is not vegetarian. And the second meal or snack as they say was not vegetarian or vegan at all."

Cons: "I didn't get to board, ended up spending $2,400.00 over and above the $980.00 that I spent booking the initial ticket. I was not informed when I booked the ticket that when you transit through 2 schengen countries, you need a transit document. I was informed about it at then airport. Not only did I miss my flight, I had to book for the next day at a outrageous price. SUPER BAD CUSTOMER SERVICE...BOTH KAYAK and PRICELINE. Will never recommend you guys to anyone."

Pros: "I was given a great seat and the food was OK- not the Air France food of 5 years ago but still good"
Cons: "I didn't really use the in flight entertainment - the usual movies, tv etc"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Horrible delay. I got letd to my next flyight. The airline stuff didn’t assist me at all and didn’t wanted to help me getting to my next flight. Horrible"

Pros: "Short flight so I can't really complain. It was no frills, standard small aircraft with no high tech entertainment system. Seats were fairly comfortable"

Pros: "Over all pretty good for price."

Pros: "Cheap ticket"
Cons: "The fact that you cheapskates don't allow credit or refund is downright usury. I didn't take that flight because of medical issues that caused me to cancel my trip 2 weeks in advance. I pleaded with you to be able to take a credit, to no avail. You lost a customer."

Pros: "Flight crew, pilot,food and entertainment options were great"
Cons: "Baggage took a while to reach baggage claim but maybe a bit impatient after a long day"

Pros: "Food and wine was very good. Music selection was excellent."
Cons: "Not enough leg room."

Cons: "I am not sure why this happened, but our daughter, travelling away from home for the first time, was targeted at every step of her journey. From the terminal in DCA to Cincinnati, to CDG. Delta/Air France clearly singled her out. i am outraged! I have traveled many, many times and have sent hundreds of students on nearly the same trip -- and none have had as rough a time as she had. They will be hearing from me."

Pros: "Absolutely everything perfect."
Cons: "Through my own fault I ordered a different seat instead of window seat. :)"

Pros: "The crew and flight was faultless"
Cons: "We were not advised of a flight number change or checking in location change. This could have resulted in us missing our flight."

Pros: "Courteous crew"

Cons: "The company simply lets passengers board a fulled booked flight with far too much luggage. Result, take off 20 minutes late because there was not enough room for luggage in the overhead compartments. I was flying with just a small backpack that went under the seat"

Pros: "The service"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "All was good we didn’t feel the time 9 hours passed easily"
Cons: "Nothing special"

Pros: "What’s not to like!"

Pros: "None"
Cons: "The airlines didn’t even notify the passengers with the connecting flight. As the arrival was little late, all the passengers have missed their connection flights in Toronto and there was no notification or communication made on the new flight. When I went to the Air France counter in the airport, the staff has gone for the day and trying to get a hold of telephone rep took 2-3 hours and I by the time I found about my new connection, I was already late. Somehow I managed to get to the Terminal 1 and when I spoke to the lady (indian) at the Check-In counter, she has refused me to Check-In because i slipped the line up. The people in the lineup didn’t have any objection and they let me go first for Check-In as I’m already late to my flight. I wante to say something to her, but I’ve controlled my frustration. Luckily the other person in the Check-In counter offered to help me Check-In. Here is my word to the Indian lady staff “F**k You B***h” - learn some people skills."

Pros: "Good cabin, but very conjugated :|"
Cons: "Too much of hassle checking in as the airlines partners with a couple of other airlines like Jet Airways, WestJet & Aircanada. The food was just okay and the cabin crew refused to serve extra butter. When you are serving extra bread, make sure you serve the butter as well. How could someone eat bread by itself?"

Pros: "On time after latish start"
Cons: "Staff took carryon bags even for skypriority even tho lots of room in overhead, allegedly to speed deplaning. Nowarning to repack. Infuriating and stubborn staff!"

Pros: "Hospitality of the flight attendants"
Cons: "Toilets could hv been cleaned more often"

Cons: "They lost my luggage"

Pros: "On time...comfortable, clean, newish A321...good leg room...friendly crew...pain au chocolat for breakfast"

Pros: "All crew I interacted with was great, friendly, and helpful."
Cons: "Flight was late. Boarding very slow. Entertainment was ok by today's standards. Each seat had a display, but movie selection was not great. For a French airline I was looking forward to breakfast -- maybe some nice pastries or at least a decent croissant with jam. None such. It was disappointing. Meals were not impressive either, but the complimentary wine was good. I did not find the seats comfortable."

Cons: "Each time the space in this planes is smaller. Surprising, it was very hot all the time."

Pros: "Good seat near the front."
Cons: "Delayed arrival by 30 minutes."

Pros: "The food was good"
Cons: "The seats were terrible, the entertainment units were poor and staff was very reluctant to give proper service."

Pros: "Seats were comfortable, but the sliding action, instead of recline, took getting used to. Food was very good. Snacks available on demand, along with drinks. Complimentary wine with meal was also quite good. Entertainment system was first rate with plenty of options for TV. movies, music, games, etc..."
Cons: "Sitting in the middle two seats in the center of the 777 left me stuck for most of the flight. Got up only once. Wife's feet and ankles were swollen by the end of the flight. Not enough legroom to move much during the flight and not enough aisle space to get around with the plane so full. Have made flights twice as long on the 747 and were able to get up and walk."

Pros: "Excellent choice of movies. Great service. Friendly crew."
Cons: "I requested a lacto-ovo vegetarian meal, which I received. However, it appears the meal was also vegan. Normally, that would be okay except one of the two standard meal choices was also vegetarian and seemed much better. Since I had selected lacto-ovo vegetarian, it seems I was not allowed to select the standard vegetarian option. Hard not to have cheese on an Air France flight - just saying :-)"

Pros: "The food, the facilities, the seat, everything."

Pros: "Ticket price"
Cons: "Long check in wait in Dubai. Food was shocking - inedible!"

Pros: "The crew were pleasant and most served with a smile. When I was at the back to stretch my legs, one of the crew asked if I wanted coffee or tea since I was not able to get some sleep during the long flight."
Cons: "I thought the seat seems a bit short but the leg room is ok."

Pros: "Loved the entertainment. The movies and other options were great. The drinks were very repressing also."
Cons: "I did not like the food. Also I do not eat meat so I was no given a non meat option I was just told to eat everything except the meat. I was also not a fan of the snacks in between. There was a spread some olives and then a spinach pie and they were cold and not appetizing. Next my luggage did not make it to ATL with me it stayed in Dublin and I ended up not getting it until 2 days later. Next the bathrooms became very dirty towards the end of the trip so it made it quite unpleasant to have to go to the restroom."
