Charles de Gaulle airport sent us to 3 different gates and then delayed the flight by two hours, only to move it back to the original gate
Pros: "Extra room and fast boarding"
Cons: "Informing that the flight would delayed by three hours ahead of time would have been amazing. Instead of extending the delayed time every 45 min making us miss all the other opportunities to fly out"
Pros: "Super comfortable and inflight entertainment was amazing"
Pros: "Leg room"
Cons: "Not sitting in an airplane without AC for 30 minutes after everyone loaded"
Cons: "They need to make more leg room in ALL planes"
Cons: "I had a tight connection, but made it to the gate in time. I walked down the jetway to what appeared to be a locked door, with no one there to guide me on how to board. It turns out there was a stairwell at the end of the jetway, which was to take me to a bus on the tarmac. This was very stressful."
Pros: "Very fast and efficient boarding process. We began moving right when they closed the door. Smooth flight, friendly attendants."
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."
Pros: "Flight was mostly uneventful, which is great! Right after takeoff we made a complete circle and no information was given as to why, but we assumed it was air traffic."
Cons: "It was so cold! People all over were asking for blankets and commenting on the coldness"
Pros: "The flight was safe and efficient."
Cons: "The seats on the 787 Dreamliner proved to be uncomfortable AGAIN this trip. 2 years ago we flew the 787 overnight and the seats were the same. Hard cushions, tight seat pitch, and little room to move about."
Pros: "The croissants were great!"
Cons: "I wanted an aisle seat."
Pros: "Everything! I appreciate that the ticketing agent helped me get an earlier flight and I appreciated the gate agent making sure I had a good seat! I love Delta!"
Cons: "Nothing honestly"
Pros: "Very helpful flight crew."
Cons: "A little unexpectedly bumpy."
Pros: "On time arrival is always appreciated."
Cons: "Overhead compartment jammed with someone else's carry on. We paid for "comfort seating" and I frankly didn't see any difference - if there was more room on those seats, it was small enough I couldn't SEE it."
Cons: "If my baggage arrived"
Pros: "Empty seats direct into Indy."
Cons: "Rough landing."
Pros: "Having the whole center three seats to myself. The food and beverages were really good as well."
Cons: "Both flights were significantly late to depart. Also the WiFi on the transatlantic flight was out."
Pros: "The seats are probably the most comfy of all the flights I’ve taken. All the crew was super nice."
Cons: "On my delta app it said we’d have the TVs again but we didn’t have any this time."
Pros: "Crew was great."
Cons: "A bit warm and the B777 blowers not in the easiest location to reach."
Pros: "The crew asked a passenger to move so we could all sit together. It was awesome. :)"
Cons: "more leg room is needed"
Cons: "It was too cold on the feet during the night. The blanket was not enough. The food lacked good vegetables. The asparagus was too tough. If you wanted to avoid sugar, you could not eat breakfast."
Pros: "Friendly service, smooth flight"
Cons: "Some seats were double booked, which was not realized until the plane was fully boarded, which caused very late departure, which almost caused us to miss our connection in Paris. Also the bathroom became a mess - slow to restock toilet paper, etc."
Pros: "Delta is my favorite airline. Smaller planes with two seats two a row."
Cons: "I was told to check my luggage even though there was still overhead bin space."
Pros: "The service and the crew were extremely courteous polite and professional ."
Cons: "As it is an all flights just not enough leg room and a very tight chair."
Pros: "- great customer service - friendly staff - Positive energy"
Cons: "- No room in the seats - No food served on plane - Crowded -"
Pros: "The food was good The crew was fantastic, friendly and accommodating Flight was on time"
Cons: "I was near the bathroom.. stank a bit"
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: "Travel got delayed by an hour but we were satisfied by the crew and food"
Cons: "The delay of the flight. Not sure on the reason"
Pros: "Food and movies were good."
Cons: "Didn't leave on time."
Cons: "They were very dishonest about everything. We need to be there in Australia on Monday morning for very important event but reached Australia Monday night 8PM. 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.............."
Pros: "Quick friendly service from crew and captain."
Cons: "First class seat was broken was reclined and super uncomfortable the whole flight the plane was super outdated and old."
Pros: "The Delta check-in at RDU was terribly understaffed with only 2 agents handling baggage drop-off for a fully booked Boeing 757. I waited over 1 hour and got to the gate at the last minute. Poorly managed! The flight crew was great though! Very attentive service even in the economy class!"
Cons: "The food could be better."
Pros: "I love how attentive the crew was. Food and beverages we’re always available and I even had the chance to rest."
Cons: "Seats not very comfortable-very close quartered"
Pros: "The food was fine and it was on time"
Cons: "The airplane back by the bathrooms were littered all over the floor. Needed to be cleaned. Their were no seat covers in toilette and it was only 2 hrs into the flight."
Cons: "After fully boarding the plane, we all had to leave because the air conditioning failed. We've traveled five times on Delta this year and every trip has had a significant delay."
Cons: "My wife was told she could not board our flight from Boston to Paris because her passport was expired, even though it was not expired. We were told that in Europe passports cannot expire within 3 months of your departure. However, Delta never let us know about this rule until we literally were boarding the plane. How they could not make us aware of this until we were boarding the airplane is unbelievable and unacceptable. This has ruined our vacation which has been in planning for the last six months."
Pros: "Everything was just as I have come to expect -- efficient, polite, and courteous crewe"
Pros: "All crew was great"
Cons: "We lost checked bag or it was taken, will loss a half day shopping for replacements. Compensation policy very unclear, not counting on getting any."
Pros: "Good food (for economy), lots of little perks (like eye shades), and most importantly, excellent service from the flight attendants. One of my best transatlantic flights."
Pros: "I liked: After check-in, I was given luggage sticker and told that luggage will be collected in Hyderabad which is my last destination, same was printed the sticker."
Cons: "I didn't like: While transition from Mumbai to Hyderabad, i was told to collect the luggage in Mumbai and check-in again which made so worried and confused."
Pros: "At least the plane didn't return to the gate and we departed 7 hours late."
Cons: "All the delays and gate changes with no explanations and only informed via text message. The weather wasn't even that bad. Missed the connecting flight to Bucharest and part of vacation time."
Cons: "Compared to such airlines like Turkish or etihad, service and comfort was lacking behind."
Pros: "the embraer 175 is VERY comfortable, despite being a smaller jet."
Cons: "Just an FYI - the small overhead bin space on the Embraer 175 made it so that many passengers bags needed to be checked at the gate to baggage."
Pros: "The crew was cranky at the beginning of the flight."
Cons: "More space!"
Cons: "We were delayed thirty minutes due to slow service. Zero entertainment and only a brownie for a snack"
Pros: "Comfortable seats, adequate legroom; clean aircraft, polite and professional crew."
Cons: "Super crowded gate -- but that's more the CDG problem than Norwegian's one."
Pros: "The crew on-board was nicer this time"
Cons: "Had wait in line for more than 1.5 hours to check in (no self-serve kiosk) and then conform to the 10kg carry-on (both backpack and suitcase) rule which didn't happen on the first flight. The staff are rude and unhelpful and the whole process of dealing with Norwegian is confusing."
Pros: "Everything was great"
Cons: "I’d honestly pay more for childless flights"
Pros: "They were smiling and very welcoming"
Cons: "Improving customer service during delay but overall good"
Pros: "Brand new very nice/comfortable planes. Great routes and flight departure/arrive times. Really great value."
Cons: "They’re a budget airline so they nickel and dime you for food and beverage. They are not a member of “sky team” so if they have a flight delay or cancellation they will not book you on another airline."
Pros: "The flight attendants were wonderful."
Cons: "You take a bus to reach the plane and the seats are uncomfortable without any entertainment systems. Thankfully the flight was only 1.5 hours."
Pros: "Service and the crewe was very kind"
Cons: "There was no entertainment a lite. Crowded the seat but I understand as it was a smalll airplane."
Cons: "They ran out of vegetarian options so I only could have salad, bread and butter"
Cons: "Food could be improved."
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: "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: "Quick, efficient, relaxing."
Pros: "Direct from SJC, not crowded"
Cons: "Guy in front of me was reclined whole time and very little room like that."
Pros: "Staff was great."
Cons: "I missed a hot moist towel to refresh my face before I got off of the plane after an 8-hour flight."
Pros: "Crew were professional and friendly"
Cons: "Small seats"
Cons: "The flight was delayed. There was a terrible backlog in Security at Frankfurt Airport. This is not Lufthansa's fault but considering how important Frankfurt is, you would think the airlines would say something. The flight was late. There were no proper queues for boarding. Everone was mixed up, business, gold card, economy, and only one person doing the chekcing of boarding passes. It was not the best process."
Cons: "Our flight was 9 hours late. We were given no notice of this until we arrived at the gate. it took an hour if holding before we could reach customer service. Customer service at our arrival gate was extremely slow. Baggage claim closed before my daughter’s luggage was released and it was lost until the next day. Our connecting flight was booked incorrectly do we had to spend the night in Frankfurt. Our 13 hour flight took 29 hours. The food was awful."
Cons: "Flight was 2 hours late in departing from Frankfurt."
Pros: "The seats are comfortable and the plane was clean and well-presented."
Cons: "The flight left with a slight delay. As I boarded, I was issued a new seat in the middle, as opposed to the window seat I had selected. There was zero explanation for this change. When I approached the flight attendants about it, with a smile on my end, I was offered the equivalent of a shrug. As I gave up, I was also informed there was no more room in the overhead bins, so not only did I end up sitting in the middle (which I loathe), but also with my carry-on under my feet. I’ve always been a fan of Lufthansa, but I’m a little disappointed this time around."
Pros: "Professional, efficient, full, nice sandwich and coffee."
Cons: "You cancelled. Cost me lost lodging, missed connecting flights and a day of my trip."
Cons: "Beware. Frankfort to Paris A321 Business class is coach with an empty middle seat. Uncomfortable even for a short flight. Very disappointing following excellentvbusiness class on first leg of trip Orlando-Frankfort"
Pros: "Enough space for my legs, cabin crew okay"
Cons: "No entertainment"
Pros: "the flight crew were quick and responsive for any requests and polite. seems like understandable."
Cons: "flight being delayed in taking off but the it arrived on time as the time is covered it up during flight."
Pros: "Crew greeted every passenger with a smile on entry and exit! So nice. Delicious, large cookie for a short flight."
Cons: "Boarding was poor. Did not board back of aircraft first like Lufthansa does on other flights. Felt sardined almost because of a full flight"
Pros: "Although clearly an older plane, it was clean. Gate personnel re-assigned me to a seat in a row with no-one in it."
Cons: "The gate of departure moved twice before departure. The last change was to a completely different building. Apparently the equipment was changed and I did not learn that I would need a seat re-assignment until I scanned my boarding pass during boarding. (However, the gate agent was quick to accommodate)."
Cons: "There were no Lufthansa representatives in Frankfurt airport upon my arrival. Also my connecting flight wasn't showing on electronic board. I had to get WiFi connection in order to get any info. I was very unhappy about it ."
Pros: "Crew was very nice, easy boarding"
Cons: "Horrible food, very small, cramped seats. The cabin was extremely cold, even with my jacket on."
Pros: "It was quick and smooth. Snack provided. Baggage arrived quickly."
Pros: "Flight Crew"
Cons: "Food was pretty bad."
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."
Cons: "Being put in a distanced place for boarding"
Pros: "The crew was nice and professional."
Cons: "We waited over an hour for two people to board the plane. After we waited, the couple didn't make it past security; so, we had to wait another 20 minutes for the company to take their luggage off of the plane. I was late checking into my hotel, which was in the process of being canceled."
Pros: "Crew was nice."
Cons: "Flight was delayed. No entertainment, even though there is an app for it, it did not work, and the crew had no idea regarding it."
Pros: "Crew was fantastic."
Pros: "Title says it all Short flight"
Pros: "Standard short flight."
Cons: "I have no idea why they would book this flight for a connection to Chicago. They only gave me an hour window for connecting and with the plane delayed 30 minutes I had to rush through and skip everyone in like at passport check and made it just as the were boarding my connection."
Pros: "crew was very nice engaging. shopping at Munich airport was unexpectedly good."
Cons: "My seat didn't recline. I changed seats with my sister mid flight so I could sleep."
Pros: "- crew was nice - overall flight was smooth"
Cons: "- not too unexpectedly, food was small - bring something warm to wear, as at some point temps can be real cold... - wish the boarding process was slightly more logical and have people with seats in the back of the plane go first"
Pros: "Comfortable seats and pleasant crew"
Cons: "It was a short flight so no food was given out."
Pros: "Unfortunately expectations on flights are so low that I am hesitant to say much. It got us there in one piece and I guess that is considered nice these days."
Cons: "I don't normally expect much of airplane food but this was a very low end food for an overseas 8 hour flight."
Pros: "Flight was 10 minutes late departing but a short flight time led to us arriving in CDG on time."
Cons: "Baggage delivery to carousel 6 at CDG took over 40 minutes with delivery coming in small batches......the flight time was shorter!"
Pros: "The wide selection of content to watch, food was good."
Cons: "45 minute flight delay due to a discrepancy with the engine."
Cons: "From the boarding to the landing this crew could not have been more rude. Flashlights in the eye when trying to sleep, rude comments, rude attitude. They are clearly not here to make our flight easier."
Cons: "The food was not goot at all."
Pros: "Great service and entertainment. Pretty comfortable, too."
Cons: "food was so so."
Cons: "I didn't like putting two family on different seats far from each other"
Cons: "Quite narrow seats and seat pitch in economy, but the price was right. Poor quality seatback screens but a good selection of films and tv"
Cons: "The seats are uncomfortable, no leg room, no space between seats and the trays hit ones’s stomach. The whole experience was very uncomfortable. The food was awful. Overheated and not cooked through at the same time. Breakfast was odd. Non-Greek yoghurt and cashews. Just strange."
Cons: "The transfer was a disaster. We had to go through the security check (even though the transfer was in the Schengen area) and almost missed our connecting flight."
Pros: "The choice of entertainment is huge"
Cons: "The fisical conditions are terrible. Seats so narrow and rows are so close, that you practically pooched into your neighbors, those that behind don't let you to recline your seat as then your seat is in their face. It looks like American Airlines hopes to exchange your reality with virtuality, but our bodies that we are for some reason taking with us on that itinerary - suffer."
Pros: "Friendly crew, modern and clean plane."
Cons: "After we landed the crew diacovet d that we had parked too far from the gate and needed to move the plane. Several passengers were anxious to deplane to connect to another flight and refused to sit down which caused further delays. The crew could have been more stern about passenger conduct as to make the process more efficient."
Pros: "The Finnair representatives at the airport were incredibly nice and helpful."
Cons: "I never made it on the flight because I booked through airfare.com which gives no warning or notices that passports need to be valid for three months after a flight to France. I ended up spending hours on the phone with them constantly being yelled at by their customer service reps."
Pros: "All around great service and reliability"
Cons: "Alittle more seat spacing"
Cons: "They let us board before fixing an electrical problem causing major delay. They needed a new part and they thought they could jerryrig a repair!"
Cons: "It is ridiculous that they would not allow you to select a seat for free at check-in. There were many unoccupied seats, but some families with children were seated separately, so there was a lot of seat changing before the take off."
Pros: "American Airlines gets a thumbs up for this flight! Great seating, food decent, on time. We waited for some folks to join from a connecting flight which was good business."
Pros: "Airplane was pretty spacious and clean and it had all the amenities of a newer plane"
Cons: "Small plane incredibly cramped for8 hour flight"
Pros: "Loved the flight attendance!! They were friendly, witty and flexible."
Cons: "Even though we had booked this flight in September we were never able to choose a seat for this flight. We kept trying and the only way we could pick a seat months and weeks ahead was if we bought an upgrade. We had already spent over $1000 to fly to Paris each and did not want to buy an upgrade. We just wanted the assignment of a seat. When we got closer to the date we were told that we would get a seat assignment at check in. At check in we were told we would get a seat assignment at the airport. At the airport we were told we would get a seat assignment at the GATE! At the GATE the attendant had difficulty finding our seats and finally found them with the help of another attendant. This adding extreme stress to a trip that was planned in September and should have been a pleasureable experience. Our seats were not together and we then had to go on the plane and ask other travelers to change their seats in order to be near each other. This was not our job! We ended up near each other but not together. Then when we arrived in Paris we noticed that our suitcases had been tagged STAND BY!!!!!! We were glad that we did not see that at the Philadelphia airport because it would have added even more stress to a long anticipated pleasure trip to Paris. Next time we will make sure that the tickets we are purchasing (FINNAIR) have nothing to do with American Airlines."
Pros: "American Airlines flight didn't even have tvs, chairs were old and outdated. Not worth the price. Now days there are some standards that are expected"
Pros: "Two hours late leaving Miami. Just made my CDG connection with 2 minutes to spare thanks to faster delivery of luggage at CDG"
Pros: "comfortable seats, meal was better than expected, in flight entertainment was good"
Cons: "it's absurd to have to pay like $70 more for window seats"
Pros: "Flight was operated by American and they really absolutely need to update their planes on the JFK-CDG route. It is the only airline that does not provide individual screens, the seats barely recline and the air quality on board on board lives a lot to be desired as the plane odor is just not good."
Cons: "Service, choice of movies, uncomfortable old seats, impossible to change my seat in advance"
Pros: "Flghr was operated by American Airline Flight was surbooked and I was lucky enough to be upgraded in business class Crew members were great, service excellent MK"
Pros: "Food, not crowded, small plane"
Cons: "No individual tvs"
Pros: "Clean plane, nice crew. I'm a very happy and relaxed traveler"
Cons: "No in-flight entertainment and seats didn't recline well"
Pros: "American Airlines executive club checking and boarding is quite good in an always packed airport"
Cons: "Very old plane. Not a nice crew."
Pros: "old planes tight seat no entertainment late boarding"
Cons: "Very old plane No leg room No tv Grumpy crew Over an hour delayed"
Pros: "Fabulous crew, easy flight with just a few periods of chop - captain kept us well aware of what was happening at all times."
Cons: "Poor entertainment (no individual units on seats), and the 767-300 has almost no leg room in economy."
Pros: "I am not sure why when i bought my ticket on kayak just fly was the company I had to deal with. They are extortionist. They should be deleted from your website."
Cons: "Tried to change my flight, line got disconnected, when I called back the fees went from 500 to 1100 - they couldn't justify why. I will never use kayak again if these kind of people is who I have to deal with coupled with awful customer service they hung up on me three times."
Pros: "The boarding process was expedient and the food was ok and standard for these flights."
Cons: "I travel at least 1 week a month either to Europe, South America or across the United States. The Airplaine was extremely old and looked like it was not refurbished at all since the 90's. Unlike basically every other airline (including airlines from the developing world) the plane did not have a personal entertainment system which is rather vexing considering the flight is so long. The decoration of the plane looked old and worn. The crew were more interested in getting the job done quickly than properly."
Pros: "Crew was nice and boarding was on time"
Cons: "entertainment on the A330 is so sluggish people think the screen is not working correctly pushing harder and harder on the screen making it uncomfortable for the people in front of them. Food is as usual: Not very healthy and always the same."
Pros: "Crew was generally friendly. Leg room in coach was ok. The price was good."
Cons: "Kayak sent misleading check in announcements. Namely, telling us to check in with Finnair, where it would not let us check in on line and no one answered the phone. We ultimately checked in with American, which was operating the flight. Not a customer friendly process. American should be embarrassed to serve meals. We think people will eat the gruel because they paid for it. No choice of entertainment. How 1990s. If this is the new American Airlines Lord help us."
Pros: "The crew was friendly and very accommodating. Inflight entertainment had many choices, had a wonderful relaxing time. The food was not too good but then again it's airplane food. Overall, recommend the experience."
Pros: "On time departure and early arrival"
Cons: "Was not Finnair but American Airlines operated flight, so cramped, no personal entertainment system, sub charger, etc. Would have been great if this was 1996 and not 2016."
Pros: "I did not like anything about this trip."
Cons: "Our flight from Chicago to Paris was managed by Finnair, but flown through American Airlines. This was the second disappointing flight on American Airlines. Our first flight was repeatedly delayed over three hours and then canceled. Everyone had to take a new flight the next day on the same plane which was scheduled to be fixed that morning prior to departure. We boarded the plane 45 minutes late and then were informed that the part needed to fix the plan had just cleared customs. After another hour of waiting on the plane, we taxied to the runway and the returned to the gate because another part needed to be fixed on the plane. We waited another hour and a half on the plane before finally taking off. Upon our arrival at Chicago O'Hare, we waited on the tarmac for 30 minutes before the ground crew parked our plane. Which brings me to this flight from Chicago O'Hare to Charles de Gaulle in Paris. Our flight was delayed for maintenance repeatedly for 2 hours and then a new plane had to be brought over. By the time we boarded we were almost four hours behind schedule due to a logbook problem once we boarded the new plane. The plane itself was small - the size of a domestic flight - and VERY cramped. On both of the flights we had no TVs in the headrest. This is something that I have always had in economy class on international flights. It was by far the most uncomfortable flight I have ever been on. Because of the delay, we had to reschedule one of our two connecting flights. I was assured that our bags would still arrive at our final destination. When we finally reached our final destination, we found out that our bags had been lost along the way - most likely because of the flight being rescheduled."
Pros: "Staff was kind, flight itself generally went smoothly. The boarding process itself went fairly quickly, and I was able to disembark within minutes of landing."
Cons: "This Finnair flight was operated by American Airlines, but American Airlines did not notify me about the change in flight number until I called in a panic the night before because I was unable to check in. The plane was nearly 2 hours late departing from Chicago O'Hare with no explanation given. 1hr and 45 minutes is a long time to sit without going anywhere. Food was incredibly uninspiring and the staff was kind, but generally seemed distracted. I asked for a beverage at one point, but the flight attendant was too busy trying to get the passenger next to me who was passed out on sleeping pills to put the window shade down to give it to me. American Airlines is one of the only carriers left that has not upgraded to individual entertainment units for transatlantic flights and so the entertainment was like something straight out of Mad Men. Probably my worst flying experience to date."
Cons: "International flight delayed 2 hours for multiple mechanical issues. 45 minutes before boarding, we were given a $20 voucher for food and drink (which we couldn't spend on snacks, just big meals, which was undesirable so late at night). Flight itself played Mission Impossible 4, then a kid's cartoon, then nothing the remaining 5 hours. Very uncomfortable for those who can't sleep on planes."
Cons: "We waited for 3 1/2 hours in the plane before taking off. We ended up landing with a 3-hour delay."
Pros: "Aircraft was so old.Paying $1,000 for that, when any other airline uses decent aircrafts, is just unacceptable."
Cons: "no food on the first flight no private tv they tell you can have wi fi entertainment but you have to pay for it the staff was rude tell also told me my cary on luggage could not be taken on board because there was no more space so i had to cary all my things for two flights but once i came in into the plane there was plenty of space. the seats had a very low head rest"
Cons: "Delayed 5+ hours. Aircraft was changed to a smaller plane than we booked."
Pros: "other than that, the flight was fine. did not sample the food"
Pros: "the crew was good and helpful. They should be paid more."
Cons: "ALL my print outs say FINNAIR, your asking about my FINNAIR flight, all says FINNAIR, so I go to the airport and wait 30 precious minutes at the FINNAIR counter to check in ( there was no self check in computers) only to be told Ah, you are not on FINNAIR, you are on American and must go to the American counter. I was given my itinerary back and rushed to American and began to self check in only to realize in the rush the woman had not given me back my passport. So, I rushed back to get it, loosing more time, only to find she had given it to another agent at another American counter but not at the check in area, and it took more time to find out who had my passport. I made my flight, but if ALL says FINNAIR, how am I supposed to know that I should instead be looking at fine print to discover which airline I am actually flying on and waste time!!!!!!! It should state CLEARLY that I need to check in at the American counter. In flight entertainment was really poor in comparison to other airlines on international flights."
Pros: "Good footroom in Main Cabin Extra."
Cons: "Delayed 5 hours. No power or individual VOD at seat."
Pros: "I had tsa which started the trip in a wonderful way! On time. Captain seemed nice and competent. The crew nice too."
Cons: "I flew American not finnair. Very confusing. I paid 65$ for a better seat. It was further forward but not worth the money and the others around me I don't think they paid extra. No movies. Couldn't see the screen."
Cons: "Small seats and no in-seat entertainment."
Pros: "The flight did get us there."
Cons: "This flight had about 6 different airlines listed. I was supposedly flying Finnair. Make no mistake, this was an American Airlines flight. On an old plane with crummy entertainment, uninspired food, and uncomfortable seats. But we did get here."
Cons: "Sat on Tarmac for 1.5 hours. Apparently something was wrong with the plane. And then we waited for a mani tenancy log to get signed. Typical American Airlines garbage."
Cons: "Flight was late due to earlier mechanical error. These things happen but still annoying when they do. Crew didn’t seem too bothered."
Pros: "Everything about this booking was a disaster. Not the least of which is that my bags are still on London and are total travel time will end up being about 24 hours returning."
Pros: "There wasn't anything special about this flight to like, unless you like leaving late and no leg room."
Cons: "Try leaving on time for once, I nearly missed my connection because Aer Lingus is terrible at on time departures. I'm just under 2 meters tall, the seats were so tiny my knees were pressed into to the seat in front of me the entire trip."
Pros: "It was short and with friendly staff."
Cons: "No complimentary refreshments."
Pros: "Seats were better than the international leg."
Cons: "Everything. Offer at least a drink - all drinks were a charge. Staff was rude. Also they lost our luggage."
Pros: "Quick boarding, kind crew"
Cons: "All food and drinks for a cost. I had to run to make it to my gate which was quite a distance and a shuttle ride away."
Pros: "Flight on-time."
Cons: "Food options are expensive, non-alcoholic beverages should be provided for free, and food options are really scarce. Add some entertainment or wifi."
Pros: "Quick, on time, professional."
Cons: "Shuttle transfers... I prefer direct to plane boarding."
Cons: "Paying for soft drinks"
Pros: "Nothing really. The price was good, but only a little cheaper than others. I will pay more next time for sure."
Cons: "Hot plane (no air vents). Rude attendants. VERY small, narrow seats. They removed a few bathrooms for more seats (rows without windows now). There was nothing to like. Nothing. I was on the IAD to Dublin flight (and back). Delayed flights both ways."
Pros: "Almost everything"
Cons: "The confort of thé seats. Way too tight for a 6 hour flight."
Cons: "Actuality an aer lingus flight, a secret code share. Flight overbooked by 35 people. 2 hours to find out I was bumped. Another two hours of waiting while one clerk worked each of the 35 people to rebook. Disaster. Tears. People delayed two full days with no hotel / food /etc. I'll never book british airways or through kayak again. Awful."
Cons: "The flight was booked through Jetfly and I tried to change the date. I ended up losing the entire ticket. No flight, no money. I talked to Jetfly at least 8 times and they kept confusing things, delaying things, and were not very helpful which caused me to miss any available flights."
Pros: "The crew is friendly"
Cons: "See above"
Pros: "Flight was ok."
Cons: "No free food or drink service."
Pros: "Crew remained civil under duress"
Cons: "Flight delays going over and coming back"
Cons: "The chairs are so uncomfortable!"
Pros: "Entertainment very good food good"
Cons: "Cramped boarding disorganized"
Pros: "Timeliness of flight and service on board."
Cons: "We upgraded 7 travelers for priority boarding. However as we got through check in, 2 of us were told we had to check our carry on. Mind you our carry on was the same size (exact same suitcase) as 2 others in our party who did not have to check in their bags? "Priority Boarding is now only €4.99. Be the first on board to store your cabin bag and relax in your seat before take-off." I believe I am entitled to a refund based on the info on above taken directly from the Aer Lingus website."
Cons: "Free-for-all boarding was less than ideal. Boarding by seat rows as on Boston to Dublin flight would have been better."
Pros: "on time"
Cons: "food is expensive and the drinks are robbery"
Cons: "Missing connecting flight"
Pros: "Quick Boarding"
Cons: "Flight was delayed for an hour"
Pros: "Staff was nice."
Cons: "Food and drink service were very bad. Not enough water throughout the flight. And that is what keeps us healthy in long oversees flights. They ran out of bottled water. No decent healthy snack choices, just airline pretzels. Very sub par for an internatiinal flight!"
Pros: "Dublin airport is cold. Security between plane in correspondance area to crowded and unnecessary."
Cons: "The good part was that I paid for what i received. So anyway why do I complain."
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "Delayed by 30 minutes"
Cons: "Short flight so N/A on food and entertainment. Crew were much nicer and friendly than our first leg of the trip."
Cons: "It was like squeezing everyone into a cattle truck and airport crew double book seats of a few passengers on a full flight so there was confusion on board"
Pros: "Lovely crew"
Cons: "Aer Lingus are always late departing, but it was a blessing this time as I'd have missed the connection otherwise!"
Pros: "On time delivery"
Cons: "How many seats can you cram in to an airline cabin? So tightly packed it indicates a base level of disregard by the company for their customers. And nothing offered that didn't cost (no coffee, water...)"
Cons: "It took two full hours from check in to the gate, with no clear direction on where to go at any point (this has more to do with the venice airport). Flight was delayed which was lucky, as no one could get through the lines in time. 25 minute wait upon landing for a jet bridge to be attached, then another 50 minutes for baggage to appear. All in all it was more than a 7 hour process to fly Venice to Dublin! There may have been some sort of internal system problems, but they were never mentioned which really just led to lots of frustrated passengers throughout the whole experience."
Pros: "Everything was good overall."
Cons: "Seats got a little uncomfortable after a while."
Pros: "The window seat."
Cons: "No Guiness"
Cons: "I can't actually make a comment on the food since u have to pay for it and I didn't want to. Nothing appealed enough to pay for it. Entertainment wise, there was no entertainment so I have it one star"
Cons: "Too cold"
Cons: "Not even free water"
Pros: "Friendly cabin crew."
Cons: "My baggage is still missing a week after my flight arrived and no news about it. I can't get in touch with anyone from the airline or who can help me. Pretty terrible experience."
Pros: "I had not pre-ordered a vegetarian meal, and there were no extras, but one of the flight attendants gave me a fruit salad from one of the crew's meals."
Cons: "The sound quality for the announcement system and the headphones was really bad, so I could never understand what anyone was saying. The crew is very formal and sometimes curt and borderline rude. They just seem very inflexible and seem to put rules before people."
Cons: "We arrived at Dublin airport two hours before our flight--as instructed--and had to enter an enormous line. Finally, we were instructed to leave the line after almost an hour and a half and were then informed that our tickets had been sold to someone else (we were bumped!). Aer Lingus tried to "normalize" this by explaining that they always "overbook" by 10%. How irresponsible! Instead of arriving in Paris at 4:30 PM (a direct flight) we had to take a flight to London and then to Paris and arrived at 11 PM exhausted (the bus service to Paris had closed down and we had to take a taxi). We will never fly Aer Lingus again. Aer Lingus created the long line to create this very situation!"
Pros: "okay, nothing special"
Cons: "Munich airport had poor signage to find airline to check bags and get boarding passes as we did not have access to print them prior to the flight. Aer Lingus attendant was annoyed that we did not have printed boarding passes and would only give us the one for the first leg with incorrect instructions for getting the second leg boarding pass in Dublin. With the delay finding the counter we almost missed getting through passport control and needed the airport staffer to get us ahead in the line to make the flight. A tense start......."
Pros: "check in process was easy"
Cons: "Our 2 carry-on bags were moved to checked in just before we got in. We were told that it was because it was a full flight. So what do I see in the overhead bins? 2 carry ons with "crew" tags. What bulls**t. This was a very good airline 20 years ago. Not anymore"
Pros: "From Brussels to Dublin, we had a good flight. The air hostess was attentive enough and the cabin comfort was excellent."
Cons: "That we can't even have a cup of coffee without having to pay 3 euros. I thought that was outrageous."
Pros: "The flight was so short that the food and entertainment part of this survey are. It applicable. They did serve food for purchase though and they had some good choices"
Cons: "I remember Aer Lingus being a quality airline that treated passengers well. Now charging for tea and water, and exorbitant fees for bags? Felt like Ryanair. If I want to feel like bottom of the barrel I'll just take them next time!"
Pros: "IT was dope!"
Cons: "I was hungover."
Pros: "Flight attendant was delightful."
Cons: "No free snacks or drinks. I expected at least water and a small snack."
Cons: "The flight was cancelled"
Pros: "Crew was friendly"
Cons: "No entertainment and no snack I don't believe"
Cons: "My bag did not make my connection in Iceland and was not placed on a plane headed the same route on the same day over 3 hours later. It was delayed for over 24 hours and it took over 48 hours to receive my bag."
Cons: "Boarding was chaos"
Cons: "Needed a little more space."
Pros: "Overall nice service"
Pros: "Very speedy embarkation process"
Cons: "The seats weren’t comfortable, no snacks were offered at all unless you paid for food, & we had to get off the plane in Iceland on the runway & walk to a bus that took us to the terminal."
Pros: "The quality of the aircraft, staff, service and food was excellent."
Cons: "Lost luggages"
Pros: "I like we had more room. How’s that possible for a shorter flight?!?"
Cons: "No instruction on use of shared video. No headset. Music?"
Cons: "the employees will not help you if you have a problem with the charges or the website. They claim ignorance and an inability to do anything. Which might be true. But this can be problematic. Furthermore, the website does not work and they do not write back. The single worst travel airline in my book, though the flight itself was fine. The man I sat next to had his flight cancelled without a refund and a similar story to me, with no helpful employees."
Cons: "This airline is the actual worst. Never taking it again."
Pros: "It does the job of taking you on time to the place you are flying to. I had forgotten that you have to purchase food but I find that much better: a lot less waste that on airlines where it is provided."
Pros: "Staff was nice"
Cons: "The boarding was 45 minutes delayed and seemed disorganized. The seats were uncomfortable."
Pros: "Staff was very pleasant and nice, we especially appreciated Iris's help navigating our trip Seats were comfortable In flight entertainment was great"
Cons: "A/C/air flow was broken in our section and made it the plane ride SO HOT. I'm pregnant and was miserable."
Pros: "Icelandair has the most legit airline blankets of any airline, also they gave out individual water bottles on my longer flight, saving a lot of attend call time."
Cons: "The flight to Paris started boarding behind schedule, and the boarding felt rushed."
Cons: "Reykjavik airport is very crowded. All the seats were taken, and it was even hard to find a place to stand without being in the way."
Pros: "No pillows or blankets in seats, had to get your own or ask."
Pros: "The flight went very well, and a little faster than what I'm used to on other airlines."
Cons: "Meals and/or more meal options but I also understand you sacrifice this comfort given the discounted prices for flights."
Pros: "The crew was nice"
Pros: "Planes are nice. USB charge ports and entertainment is awesome."
Cons: "Boarding process needs more organization. It was basically a free for all."
Cons: "After being delayed and missing our layover, we were directed to the "help" desk, where no one was working. A group of us finally found our way to the actually information center and were frustrated to hear that we were expected to stay overnight and leave for Paris in the morning when there was an available flight to Paris that afternoon. I explained to the attendant that despite her claims, the flight was not full (as I could purchase it on Google Flights) and she rudely told me that if I wanted to be on it that bad, I could pay for it myself. Unfortunately, that is what I had to do. Thankfully, I was able to get to Paris that evening, but it was most certainly not due to accommodating customer service. To say I am disappointed is a tremendous understatement and as mentioned before, I am an experienced and regular traveler, but I will most likely never fly Icelandair after this."
Pros: "They had great menu options. Good price on alcohol if you want to drink also a really superb selection of spirts to choose."
Cons: "Small aircraft should not put three people to a row."
Pros: "About the same as our first leg of our trip."
Pros: "Loved the northern lights on the flight. Also the staff was great, flights were great and on time."
Cons: "Could have used a snack on the long flight."
Cons: "Doing things on time seems to be a concept they don't grasp; boarding seems to happen at the time they state for departure (but that isn't what your ticket says). Explain to me how you can have all your big flights departing at the SAME TIME? Gates are close together for big flights with very little seating area so people are milling about confused about which line is which and not wanting to sit on the dirty floors."
Pros: "Flight crew very friendly and accomodating. On tome, excellent entertainment ."
Cons: "Only annoyance was non bridge boarding, needing to get bus to board"
Cons: "They did not call for rows so it was mass chaos especially when our gate line crossed with another boarding at the same time. They have a lot of flights leaving at the same time and it could be a much better boarding process."
Pros: "The flight was smooth and quick. There was a lot of room on the plane."
Cons: "There was some confusion at the Iceland airport because there were two gates areas close together that provided a place to wait for a bus to take passengers to the plane. Our flight was delayed and there were no announcements until after it should have taken off. In the end, it was only delayed 50 minutes. There were people from another flight mixed in with our line and they nearly missed their own plane. It would have reduced stress to have more direction from the staff."
Cons: "No free snacks or food"
Pros: "sufficient room for legs (my height is 1,78)"
Cons: "An entertainement digital tablet is available on demand. Nevertheless, the proposed films and music aim almost exclusivment Icelandic public"
Cons: "This is the first and the last time that I fly to Europe with a budget airline. To save themselves a few bucks, they made the experience much less pleasant than it could have been. What they sold as food on the airplane was pathetic. And the prices for the awful food at the airport in Reykjavik were outrageous and they were not even posted, so until you went to pay you didn't know that those two pieces of stale bread with a thin slice of ham cost more than $12. Things like these leave one with a very bad aftertaste. Not worth it."
Cons: "No food and the movie selection"
Pros: "Uncomfortable plane."
Pros: "See above"
Cons: "See above"
Pros: "food in terminal was over priced and poor quality deplaning via stairs was ugly and being bus to terminal was bad, when we arrived at the terminal we could not get in then we were locked in a hall way"
Cons: "The Reykjavik airport is simply too small for the number of flights they have. Most planes can't come to a gate, and there were nowhere near enough busses shuttling passengers to the planes. As a result, it took 90 minutes to board the plane, and an additional 70 minutes after boarding to get a runway to take off. We made up some time in the air so we were only an hour late, but it seemed avoidable if the airport would be more realistic about its capacity."
Cons: "Our flight left late so we missed our connection to Paris. Icelandair sent us to Amsterdam but that flight was delayed as well so we missed our connection to Paris. They put us on a flight to Birmingham England and from there to Paris. The airline lost both of my suitcases and could only find one of them. My son had to buy new clothes to wear etc. I will never fly this airline again."
Cons: "I was delayed 9 hours due to a strike, including a 7 hour layover with no offer of compensation or assistance."
Cons: "The terminal was a mess, under construction and very disorganized. This made the boarding process difficult and confusing."
Pros: "Flight staff was extremely friendly and helpful. Leg room better than average."
Cons: "We boarded the airline and actually got airborne for about 15 minutes before we were told by the captain that there were "technical problems" and would be force to return to (KEF) the original airport. Once there, we were told that we needed to exit and board another aircraft, which would depart in about 2 hours (all told the delay was around 3 hours total). In the meantime, the airline gave us food vouchers for the food court to compensate for our inconvenience. The only problem was, we weren't hungry, that wasn't what worried us... what worried us was that our Airfrance connecting flight to Florence, at the following airport (CDG Paris), departed about 15 minutes before our ( new) arrival time. We told this problem to icelandair staff at Reykjavik airport, there was no attempt by them to help alleviate our problem, they merely told us that we would have to talk to Airfrance about this problem as our Airfrance ticket wasn't booked on the same itinerary, and so it appeared that we were on our own. We passed the two hour layover relentlessly attempting to contact Airfrance to inform them of our status, hoping we could get re-booked on a later flight.... And so we arrived in Paris late, as expected, and learned that, not only did we miss our departing flight to Florence, without refund or a new flight booked, but we also forfeited our RETURN flight to Paris, not set to depart for THREE WEEKS. Stuck in Paris without a flight, now 16 hours after our journey began, extremely tired, angry, confused...we then had to book another round trip ticket from Paris, costing us an additional $900 USD! Although my anger and sense of injustice is largely aimed at Airfrance (because they still cancelled our return flight even though we contacted them numerous times to inform them of our dilemma), it would have been reasonable for icelandair to have worked with us and perhaps put us on a different flight, perhaps to Rome?, instead of dismissing us so thoughtlessly, because, after all, it was the icelandair flight that was delayed 3 hours and caused the problem in the first place. Right?"
Pros: "Nice crew"
Cons: "No passenger bridge at Keflavik. Had to use gate that is undergoing renovation for Paris leg. No free water bottle on this leg."
Cons: "Hearded through constuction with poor directions and had to ride a bus and stand outside for 20 minutes in Iceland at 5 am trying to board a plane."
Pros: "Ahead of my flight, I was texted twice that there was no in-flight entertainment system on board, so iPads would be provided for use during the duration of the flight. It still provided all the flight information and entertainment I had previously experienced on the brand new plane, so it was great! And I loved that I was warned ahead of time so that I was not surprised at the slight inconvenience (which wasn't much of an inconvenience at all). Also, I didn't manage to pay for my food as I had left my wallet in the overhead compartment, so when I reminded the flight attendants once everyone had left the plane, they just told me not to worry about it! Too nice... Finally, I also appreciated the timeliness and efficiency of the entire crew."
Pros: "Luggage made all the very short connections, which has never been the case with other airlines such as BA, Air Nez Zealand, Delta and AA."
Cons: "pay for food"
Pros: "We ran a bit late but the crew made up for it!"
Pros: "on time"
Cons: "nothing to eat, not even snacks!"
Cons: "Small seats No meals served for free Bus flights connection at Reykjavik airport Signals and directions at Reykjavik airport"
