Pros: "The flight was very quick."
Cons: "They didn't serve us water."

Cons: "Delay over one hour."

Cons: "The food service was way to rushed , no time to relax with a cocktail before dinner was being served. The warm mixed nuts were stale tasting. The soup was excellent. The breakfast was not edible . Not your usual standard, Delta. Makes me sad as my late husband was a million miler plus and we have always been loyal to you, Seems like you have too many passengers in business class to provide food and service you can be proud of"

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: "Take off and landing was incredibly done. Almost unnoticeable that didn't make me nervous at all."

Pros: "Very attentative."

Pros: "The food, comfort and service of Delta One class have continued to excel. Since this was a scheduled late departure and they still offered the full menu, I chose to have only the appetizer portion. This turned out to be a fine soup, salmon salad and multiple extras. This was perfect for an 11:00 PM dinner."

Pros: "Flight was good. The problem was the ticket purchased from Kayak was not as stated. Because there was a layover in Amsterdam, I was not able to check my bag all the way through to USA. AND I had to visit 5 counters to check bag, pay for bag at different counter and 3 other counters!"
Cons: "It would have been better if the ticket I purchased was the one that I selected. It was not as advertised. I searched for ticket that was translatlantic with one checked bag. BUT kayak booked an ECONOMY LIGHT fare that required payment. It was not as advertised and a total head ache for check in."

Pros: "Crew was super professional and friendly !"
Cons: "Little to no overhead cabin room to stow by my bag so had to place under my feet."

Cons: "1. Airport (Frankfurt) 2. Service crew (Lufthansa) 3. Functional entertainment (device nonfunctional on the 9 hours trip)"

Pros: "Friendly and cheerful crew. Very generous with the drinks."
Cons: "Very very long walk from aircraft to Schiphol exit. I must have walked for 20 minutes to get out. Not really Lufthansa's fault though."

Pros: "The airline staff was great. Everyone really helpful."

Pros: "The crew is amazing, special food needs is covered and delicious, great service after all."

Cons: "Guy beside me was always sitting to his friends."

Cons: "Not sure about booking with flyus. Com- next time I will prefer not to use Kayak if flight is booked through flyus.com"

Pros: "OK"
Cons: "Nothing to note"

Pros: "From stevards to comfort, everything was just perfect!"
Cons: "My seat 26A screen was freezing and movies rebooting. So I moved to a different seat"

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

Pros: "Online check in, easy to board. Flight was on time."
Cons: "I wish there was a vegan option for the food/snack onboard."

Pros: "Very roomy seats, friendly attendants. Nice sunset. My sister liked the 'tour' of the airport on taxiing to the gate. I found it frustrating. The plane was about 30 minutes late which was nice because it took a while to get off our Munich flight, find our new gate and we ended up nearly running to the gate."
Cons: "I, again, didn't like walking down 3 flights of stairs, getting a crowded bus to take us to the plane. We are used to using a jetway to the plane. I realize that European airports are busier than American airports though."

Pros: "Although the flight to Frankfurt was delayed for more than an hour they made special arrangements to get on time to the next flight."

Cons: "I have no flight to connect to."

Pros: "The food and crew were great.."
Cons: "There was a four hour delay due to a malfunction on the plane in Frankfurt. Upon landing in Atlanta there was no gate to deplane from so we had to sit on the hot plane for over an hour (still sitting as I’m writing this)."

Pros: "The staff was friendly and professional"
Cons: "The seats were too cramped, no chance to sleep on an overnight flight. In fact my back was quite sore from being cramped in the seat with no leg room and no under seat room for a small backpack. I’m only 5’2”"

Pros: "Everything except that cookie!"
Cons: "I liked everything except the cookie. It reminded me of the low quality supermarket American cookies, way too sweet and flavorless. They used to give little sandwiches, excellent in quality!!! A cookie is good too, but a better one would do a great difference! It was early morning, who would eat a sugary chocolate chip cookie for breakfast? But otherwise, I would fly with Lufthansa again in a heartbeat!!! Thank you!!!!!!"

Pros: "I did get my meal request for the 2nd leg."

Pros: "The service was okay."
Cons: "Not enough space between the seats and the seats are very tough. So hard you can’t get comfortable"

Pros: "You guys did a great job. I've never seen boarding go so smooth, The self-serve boarding gate was better than any human."
Cons: "nothing"

Pros: "Really pampered."
Cons: "Baggage allowance was less."

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: "The food was good and they provided a good amount of snacks and drinks as well. My movie screen would not play with sound and they found me a different seat."
Cons: "The layover time was terrible. Only 1 hour in Frankfurt. I barely made my next flight and that's only because I ran since the boarding time is about 30 minutes before the flight leaves. Their "minimum layover time" needs to be lengthened. I'd like to know if any of the people who make that decision have ever tried to make a flight with such a short layover."

Cons: "The special meal I got was not the same as I ordered."

Pros: "Very efficient, clean and comfortable."
Cons: "N/A"

Pros: "Updates form Kayak were much better than any info from Lufthansa"
Cons: "Overbooked. Offering € 250 to stay. Serious delay"

Cons: "Seats recline too much. When the person in front of you reclines his/her seat, you feel like you're in a tunnel with the seat back just inches from your face. However, the flight attendant was very kind and asked passengers to lift seats for the main meal, which was very nice."

Pros: "The seats are normal, the food was fine, but the service was lovely, smooth and always with a smile. We left arrived in Frankfurt almost on time and I would definitely fly Lufthansa again!"

Pros: "flight attendant crew very efficient with service Earlier than expected arrival to JFK"
Cons: "did not have a 2nd meal option for the main meal since we were sitting 5 or so rows from the end of the plane. Delay in boarding the plane, but this was balanced by an earlier than expected arrival to JFK. Too many in-flight overhead announcements interrupting entertainment screen viewing. One bathroom was not able to be locked (in economy class)."

Pros: "the trip from osaka to frankfurt was excellente. the people of the crew woho serve us, were excellent. Thanks for karen kern and her colleague First time i drunk a nice wine."
Cons: "the trip from frankfurt to sao paulo wasn't so excellent. there was a difference. Unfortunatelly, lower."

Pros: "Lufthansa - The best."

Pros: "Flight was only about 60% full. Wine was offered with each beverage pass....also cognac offered after dinner. Plane was newer,comfortable. Lots of legroom in our "more legroom" upgraded seat. Departed on time and arrived early."
Cons: "Goulash meal meat was gristle and inedible. Other food was O.K."

Pros: "crew was very polite & attentive; relatively comfortable even though the flight was packed; free cognac after dinner, even in economy class!"
Cons: "some of the food was only so-so, but still not bad"

Pros: "Great crews, great amenities, good food. Best flights I've been on in a long time."

Pros: "Lufthansa always does an excellent job, even with a gate change."

Pros: "Crew was nice, doing the best they could under the circumstances."
Cons: "Awful food, small seats. Exactly same as economy."

Pros: "30 minutes late boarding; food quite simple; entertainmentsystem very faulty"

Pros: "The service and flight was smooth."
Cons: "Breakfast was terrible. We only got a croissant and jam. It would have been nice to have had an actual meal."

Pros: "Timely distribution of meals/drinks, uncommonly quick boarding and ... unboarding. I travel with a musical instrument and some airlines want to check it and some even insist on checking it, even though there is always plenty of room. This was a completely full flight and no one even mentioned the possibility of checking it; they put me in an early boarding line and put it in a closet. The way they handle this for myself and the other passenger with an instrument made our day, as well as making boarding smoother forbus and everyone else. Really excellent job on that!"
Cons: "Old televisions with somewhat limited entertainment options. Im tall and every seat in coach is too small for me, but thats the case on every flight ive been on."

Cons: "There was no entertainment service on the flught"

Cons: "On the way to Amsterdam from Chicago Seat 27C, the entertainment consul was completely broken. NO VIDEO NO MUSIC."

Pros: "Everything worked without drama or misstep."
Cons: "The bus from the terminal to the plane was odd, but worked out fine in the end."

Pros: "Everything else was fine."
Cons: "I had paid for comfort seats ($140) extra. When I checked in at gate I was given another seat assignment (without explanation). It turned out to not be comfort seat, in fact it was the last row in the airplane. Had to get eh gate agent back, which was not fast. She said flight was full and a family had been spread out. I understand, but you can't just bump me from a paid and selected seat to a standard seat, especially on transatlantic flight after paying $140 extra. There was no apology. She went back to gate and little while later came back with a comfort seat. Some people seem not to have shown up as the seat next to me stayed open as well. It was very poorly handled."

Pros: "Struedal snack and drink (not only 1 drink, but offered if wanted more) all in a 1 hour 15 min flight. Most other large carriers barely offer a drink, let alone a snack. And not just peanuts or pretzels, streudal! Very pleasant staff, multi-lingual. Would love to fly them again."
Cons: "I booked less than a week ago and picked our seats in a two seater row, but when we boarded it was three seater rows on both sides of plane. So the aircraft must have changed. I prefer a window seat so instead I had to sit in the middle because I did not know about the change."

Cons: "Allow business passenger to use front bathroom."

Cons: "The airline lost my suitcase and deliver it only 72 hours later... They refused to give me proper compensation for items that were broken..."

Pros: "Pumpkin soup instead of a heavy entree was welcome and tasty. Breakfast yogurt portion was generous, the granola less so. Accompaniments were good. Butter was not ice cold, thank goodness."
Cons: "Inbelievably chaotic boarding process for Kili to Dar leg. No boarding lanes so had to fight through the crowd. Was able to observe cleaning process at Dar stop, which was cursory and am sure there was no cleaning of seats of those who boarded at Kili."

Cons: "Bigger seats the new ones are way to narrow"

Cons: "Still don’t have my luggage yet"

Pros: "I was sorted on Row 3 and the drapes kept hitting the back of my head."
Cons: "Move the drapes a few more inches back."

Pros: "Loved the smooth ride."
Cons: "Bathroom was pretty nasty"

Pros: "The crews were pretty great!"
Cons: "The regulating of the temperature."

Cons: "Fix the damn KIOSKS at Vienna!"

Cons: "Not being 1 hour late"

Cons: "Staff rude and short"

Cons: "KLM was not prepared to get wheel chair passenger off plane. Cost me delay of 1 hour. I will never fly KLM again."

Cons: "Boarding was very slow."

Pros: "Good for both."
Cons: "Bigger seats."

Cons: "The air conditioners fan was bad and they had to fix it in London which took over 40 minutes off travel time...we arrived much later than expected in Lagos"

Pros: "The space at my feet with the chair in front was a bit akward."
Cons: "Not being seated next to small kids. Perhaps they should have a separate section? ;-)"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "They check for everything in the counter as if it was a low cost airline. If you go a kilo more over your baggage allowance you have to pay 100 eur. And for your cabin luggage you only have 12 kg that they check you twice and they have security staff at the airport specifically check in this."

Pros: "It was all fine"
Cons: "Really was unsure of why I had to purchase a ticket as I was able to pick my own on the way to Billund"

Pros: "KLM staff is great"

Pros: "Being fed was amazing and watching free TV was great!"

Cons: "The website I booked on and the Delta phone line on the printed ticket said that I had baggage when it turns out that I did not according to the check in staff and they made me pay."

Cons: "Turn the lights on early making it hard to sleep"

Pros: "And i got it 2 days later. I had to buy a lot of items which were in my suitcase The returning of the suitcase was awfull. In tge end after many phone calls I received it On the 18/12 evening, 2 days after my landing"

Cons: "They stole my money"

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."

Pros: "Staff was so helpful and attentive to our needs.Providing service with a smile."

Cons: "Told us to get in line for boarding and review our tickets and then made us stand there for 75 minutes before boarding."

Pros: "The entertainment screen was a small 4" screen. The movie selection was outdated. The screen in my seat did not work. Flight attendant said she would "call to have it reset" but it never worked. Fortunately, there was an adjacent empty seat that I moved to on my own initiative and without the flight attendant offering a seat change."

Cons: "I did not like that i was in the bulkhead and there was not sufficient overhead storage for us. The bin was only big enough for 1 backpack. 2 of the 3 of us in that row had to go 2 rows back to store our luggage. This is very inconvenient when deboarding because I have to wait for many others to pass before I get a chance to walk towards the back of the plane to get my luggage."

Pros: "Only the cabin crew was good."
Cons: "It was the worst flight that I ever had, the seats are extremely uncomfortable, no TV, the food was terrible."

Cons: "Leaving late seemingly without reason from Paris - chaotic boarding line in Paris with difficult to hear PA. Seats were ok'ish but than again, it's a 45 minute flight. The sandwich was gross and I'm somewhat known as a person who eats everything!"

Pros: "No delays, service with a smile"
Cons: "Nothing to report."

Pros: "Crew and boarding, not much else to talk about. Late for take off, but made it on time"
Cons: "Late leaving and arriving."

Pros: "Párizs Budapest kb 1 óra késés műszaki hiba miatt. egyébként minden rendbe volt."

Pros: "I like that they still feed you and provide alcohol for free, even on a 40 min flight (unlike BA)."
Cons: "At one point during the flight I took a video out of my window with my camera, a member of the cabin crew barked at me in French. In bewilderment I asked her in English to repeat herself and she sarcastically repeated what she had said, in French, I asked for her to speak in English (which she had done to me previously on this Paris to London flight) yet again she scolded me in French. I was left absolutely none the wiser and it left a bad taste in my mouth."

Pros: "Loved the lovely food and wine from Air France, they even serve fresh french bread with camembert, ice cream, champagne (in economy) and brandy with your coffee!"
Cons: "The cabin on the 777-200 was far too hot (about 25c) and with no individual air vent I found this unbearable on a 12 hour flight. And despite the flight taking place entirely during daylight hours and leaving at 10:30 am, inexplicably we were made to all pull our blinds down and the lights went off after a couple of hours - in the middle of the day and for about 8 hours! So although I had paid for a window seat there was nothing to see apart from the window shade. As it was the middle of the day I could not go to sleep, the person in front of me reclined fully so for me the flight was a hot, claustropobic, dark hell. An utterly miserable experience. I felt like I was going mad, trapped in my own little cell."

Cons: "It was all good, only in comparison with Turkish airlines and etihad it is not at par."

Pros: "The crew was very comfortable speaking two languages and friendly. They also had air conditioning! This was great because it was strangely hot in Paris and we were sweating profusely. And our last air france experience we were so hot and it was aweful. Even though it was like an hour and a half flight they still served us sandwiches ,really good."

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 fast boarding."
Cons: "The long wait without the air conditioning until our slot in the takeoff list became available."

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

Pros: "All female crew in the cockpit - awesome."
Cons: "Non reclining seats"

Pros: "It was a fine flight"
Cons: "no specific feedback"

Pros: "The seat was good and the service was spot on"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Crew was courteous and helpful. Boarding was good. Planes were on time."
Cons: "Planes rented and old. Pilots not as familiar with plane; interior deteriorating; seats too narrow; three men in a row had too broad shoulders to fit (could be easily fixed); under seat space dividers offset so not clear feet nor luggage space; whole plane smelled terrible— tone down fragrance"

Cons: "On both flights the crew was not very friendly of helpful. No good, Except a tiny bit for the kids on a second shorter flight. And we had to pay for Wi-Fi, 12 whole dollars! A real rip off. We’ll never do Iceland air again"

Pros: "It was on time"
Cons: "Providing food/meals would be good"

Cons: "The seats on this plane were very tiny and did not recline at all. This was the most uncomfortable 767 that I have ever flown!"

Pros: "Crew was great"
Cons: "My video screen did not work well"

Pros: "Nice clean plane, more roomy plane than first flight from Toronto"

Pros: "Still the movies. And the wide body jet"

Cons: "Got email night before that flight had cancelled or changed. Ended up on a flight on United. Got to my destination as scheduled."

Pros: "Larger plane with more room"
Cons: "Boarding was a mess, no rows called; no one at the help desk."

Pros: "We made great time and it was a short flight. Entertainment options were wonderful."
Cons: "Still felt the seats are too small. Foot room is not really enough. Can’t fit my carry on under the seat."

Pros: "Departure from Reykjavik was delayed by about 15 minutes. The flught was not full so I had a spare seat next to mine to stretch s bit"
Cons: "More communication on delays would rsse strees on passengers"

Cons: "I thought it was quite cold during the flight."

Pros: "Nothing to add, all as expected."

Pros: "So much more legroom than I'm used to for a budget flight! I was so comfortable and there were plenty of options to keep me entertained on the flight."
Cons: "Boarding was a little chaotic and food/wifi was expensive, but would definitely book them again!"

Cons: "Overhead bins too shallow. Seating cramped."

Cons: "We were an hour late with no update Food service took a long time No water given out at check in People in front put their seats back the entire ride and swished is. Should be a rule to keep seats upright"

Cons: "Had to call the 1800 number before my flight. I was on hold for over 2 hours, literally. Obvious that this company does not care about customer service."

Pros: "Direct flight"
Cons: "There is only a serve of drink, headset need to pay"

Pros: "They were on time"
Cons: "They forced us to check a bag that we did not need to check for the first flight, and they ultimately lost the bag at our destination. Did not receive the bag for 12 hours after we landed. They also had us boarding outside exposed to freezing rain and wind for 10+ minutes. No organization tot he boarding process, it was a free for all. People were getting soaked and frustrated."

Pros: "Comfortable"
Cons: "No food, 3 hpur flight"

Cons: "Same as above"

Pros: "The short lay over"
Cons: "Boarding and then having to wait for 40 minutes on the runway"

Pros: "They did not even provide snacks on the plan. This was okay, but wasn't aware of this. I also LOVED that if no one is sitting next to you, you can move the arm rest to provide more space."

Pros: "I'm a European tour and booked a flight from Reykjavik to Amsterdam, I received an email to make an offer to upgrade and I quickly jumped at the chance. I received an email 2 days prior to departure that my offer was excepted and I would be upgraded to economy comfort. Economy comfort is between First Classe and economy and the cool thing about it is that you get treated as if he had a first class ticket. I had access to the lounge which was amazing, the spread out was wonderful he sat in the choices plentiful. Reykjavik is a small airport therefore it's a busy airport, what do you economy comfort I was able to use the saga class lane and I checked in less than five minutes whereas the regular lane was backed up. I was able to board along with first-class passengers and the lane was short which I love. Overall it was a great experience and Icelandair will make you a trip even better if you fly with them first class or economy comfort. I highly recommend them and I am definitely flying with them again."
Cons: "The breakfast menu was limited but since I had the economy comfort upgrade,it was free so I can't really complain since I had the economy comfort upgrade."

Pros: "Crew was very nice and efficient"
Cons: "No TV or wifi or USB plug-in, no air over seat. That was a drag. There is no food on this flight, not even for purchase"

Pros: "Yearp"
Cons: "Yearp"

Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "Long layover in Iceland, and refusal to work with me on scheduling. They would not give refund for ticket or offer to help me change the flight date. Very rude customer service."

Pros: "No issues."
Cons: "No issues."

Pros: "For the money it was pretty good. Things ran on time, getting on the plane on the tarmac was a new experience for me, as I've never been to an airport as small. That was a bonus tho, being small it was really easy to navigate!"
Cons: "The seats were rather uncomfortable, seemed like an older plane and the cushions didn't have much padding left in them. There was also a ridiculously loud and drunk group of folks that sat right next to us. The staff didn't seem to think their behaviour was disruptful. Most of the stewardesses seemed to be really freindly towards them even though it was fairly obvious that they were really loud and getting really loaded. Don't get me wrong, I appreciate a party, but not on an airplane with next to no space. My partner got a view of a man's behind the almost the whole flight as they he was standing the aisle for most of the trip. Just seemed a bit strange to let the group go through what appeared to be cases of beer that they brought on."

Cons: "No leg room, two bathrooms not working"

Cons: "Lost my luggage."

Cons: "Never got to Reykjavic"

Pros: "I greatly appreciate that this connecting flight waited for me since my first flight had been delayed. The crew was very friendly and helpful. Same great free movies and TV shows offered on all flights. Also free check in if 2 bags is great (didn't use it this time but I have before)"
Cons: "I again am very disappointed that Icelandair no longer provides complimentary meals for their trans-Atlantic flights. I believe it greatly decreases the overall quality of the flight experience."

Pros: "Seat is comfortable , nice blanket"
Cons: "Super old movie, no food include"

Pros: "Staff was friendly and accommodating, new flight was booked immediately after being cancelled"
Cons: "Our flight was cancelled, missing our 10+ layover in Iceland and trip to the blue lagoon. We missed arriving to Amsterdam for our friends birthday and ended up getting there the next day. The most dissappointing and quite frankly ridiculous part was that after being on hold for 2 hours Iceland air refused to upgrade our seats to first class after such a huge inconvenience. We boarded the plane and the entire first class portion of the flight empty!! This makes zero sense to me. Iceland air should seriously reconsider their upgrade policies. They would rather have first class be empty than make their customers happy! We were even willing to pay extra."

Pros: "Leg room was adequate and crew were generally helpful and friendly."
Cons: "Crew not showing up for flight until a few minutes before it was expected to depart. Lack of communication to travelers about a jet bridge problem. No attempt to make up lost time when the flight left an hour late (happened twice on the same trip)."

Pros: "This flight was better. It was quicker and the staff were helpful and more friendly."
Cons: "The entertainment on this flight was limited. Also there was no organization to the boarding process, everyone just boarded randomly at the same time."

Cons: "No sign for business/economy at gate."

Pros: "Leg room again was spacious."
Cons: "Everything just about!!! They were delayed by two hours twice, they took off an hour late as well, then baggage took over and hour to come out after arriving at my destination. The seats are supper in comfortable I couldn't fall asleep and my back hurt so bad. I was offered no food or drink my whole flight."

Pros: "Plane wasn't full, had a little room to move!"

Pros: "The plane was new which meant new entertainment system and seats."
Cons: "It took over 30 minutes for our luggage to arrive on the conveyor belt."

Cons: "We had an 8 hour layover due to missing our connection."

Pros: "Mostly on time"
Cons: "No food or drink amenities"

Cons: "Confusion by the airline to board was a nightmare and did not feel secure or safe. A complete disaster for what was an otherwise pleasant flight"

Cons: "Plane time delayed 30 minutes and on top of that once they opened the gate there were still long waits and a shuttle that needed to be taken to plane. Plane was boarded and took off later than expected and landed at final destination later than expected. Overall, both flights included, it was a very painful first experience using iceland air."

Pros: "The crew was polite and helpful!"
Cons: "The seats were stiff and somewhat uncomfortable."

Cons: "We had to wait 7 hours to take this flight. So after 7 hours... WE BOARD 1 HOUR LATE. Are you kidding me? This seems to happen with all IcelandAir flights. We were boarding late because we had to wait for the arriving passengers to walk through the gate first. I guess there is not enough room for people to walk in and out at the same time. Then we had to take a bus to the plan."

Cons: "Lines and more lines. Little to no information to travelers. Reykjavik airport very disorganized."

Cons: "Our suitcases got lost and there was an hour and a half delay on this flight"
