Pros: "Kayak is the best"
Cons: "None"
Pros: "Alaska is my absolute favorite airline. On time, courteous, a fair mileage plan, nice planes. Unfortunately I have to take them out of SeaTac."
Cons: "SeaTac is the worst airport in the entire country in my experience. Two examples why: 1. When I arrived this morning at 5am there was already a nearly hour long security line. 2. Upon our early arrival from California, SeaTac doesn’t have a gate for us, so we burn time and fuel on the tarmac. Like usual. One trip to any other airport and you have an appreciation for how DREADFUL SeaTac is on the whole. Some great people, but a poorly run poorly managed monstrosity of a disfinctional airport."
Pros: "simple and afordable"
Cons: "Crew forgot to unlock 2 bathrooms and chatted while a long line built up. Wifi very inconsistent."
Cons: "When I booked the flight my wife and I had adjoining seats. When we checked in we were in the same row but in the middle seats on opposite sides of the isle. On my side there three guys together, the other guys were business men concentrating on their work. I was just trying not to bump into their arms, I couldn't relax."
Pros: "Easygoing, no issues, received with some frozen margaritas, can’t ask for more..."
Pros: "Good quality seats. Comfy. Nice crew."
Cons: "lack of snack variety/offerings"
Pros: "On time and no lines"

Cons: "no complaints"
Pros: "Easy flight with no delays! The crew was very kind and the flight was comfortable."
Cons: "Arrival in San Francisco from Santa Ana airport at International airport. It was a nightmare for pickup person to citcle SFO arrival arrival terminal 2 to find the paasenger. I took a long time circling the airport many times even though passenger was at the curb site."
Pros: "Great staff, lots of leg room"
Cons: "Had to deboard the airline for 2 1/2 hrs due to issues with Seattles air traffic control connection"
Pros: "I was very pleased with the overall service. I needed a wheelchair and I was treated exceptionally well."
Cons: "Absolutely nothing"
Pros: "Todo menos el servicio de internet"
Cons: "Que se paga para tener acceso a internet y te das cuenta que al cruzar la frontera ya no puedes tener acceso,y después te das cuenta que el servicio es solo para Estados Unidos."
Pros: "First time flying from SNA/OC. Accessibility of terminals was great, close by parking and only 2$/hour. Almost no wait for check in and security, very fast and convenient. Boarding was uncomplicated and there was enough space for carry on items. Loved that they offer wifi throughout the flight and free messaging (in case you don't need full internet access). Will definitely consider flying with Alaska Airlines again!"
Pros: "SeaTac was fabulous with my wheelchair. Thanks you"
Cons: "When I was picked up for my wheelchair in John Wayne airport, there was some short in the wheelchair that was causing a burning to my thigh. The person was totally unhelpful and I finally had to walk to my gate."
Pros: "Everything was great"
Cons: "N/a"
Pros: "One of the stewardesses were so kind. She asked if Hang my suit bag in a closet used by flight personnel. My clothes did not get wrinkled!"
Pros: "Their services m"
Cons: "There was no tv and it was a bit chilly in the flight"
Pros: "On time and no delays! Friendly service as well."
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "They let us move and get more comfortable, there was hardly anyone on the flight."
Cons: "Seats are tiny."
Pros: "When everything was said and done, and most other people on the flight were given free passage to SFO by Airporter bus and then put onto a flight into LAX and then arrange transportation to Orange County (which I had every reason to think was a nightmare for those trying to get to Orange County from LAX due to unclaimed packages (security uproar) and major traffic around LAX and would not work for my disabled family to drive 1.5 hours to pick me up) I paid for a bus to SFO myself and booked a flight from there to Santa Ana (John Wayne) on Southwest. I eventually arrived there around 730 PM. Alaska refunded my flight southbound and still offered me $400 credit which was nice of them. That being said, the propeller planes are really noisy so don't expect a comfortable experience. But its worth it for the convenience to travel from Santa Rosa, CA (Sonoma County Airport) to Santa Ana (John Wayne Airport) provided they don't cancel your flight. Alaska will be adding more flights on this same route by summer and they deserve some credit for that, but at the end of the day, it was my own resourcefulness that saved the day, and got me to my family December 22nd. I would have had to wait until December 24th through Alaska Airlines for the same flight, and that is when my family celebrates Christmas, so that was NOT a very appealing option."
Pros: "Great service and friendly staff"
Pros: "The overall process was excellent as was the care and attention given to the passengers by the flight attendants. The flights there and back were on time and even a little early. I will continue to fly with Alaska Air Lines."
Cons: "I would have liked a video screen with movie options for a 2 1/2 hour flight, but I recognize I don't understand all of the considerations around that."
Pros: "price"
Pros: "On time, within 5 minutes. Great customer service."
Cons: "I didn't like that I had to pay to use the Wi-Fi that was on board."
Pros: "Very friendly saff"
Pros: "Plane was clean, Mediterranean snack box tasted great and my Jack on the rocks was almost perfect. Put it in a real glass and I'd feel like king of the world."
Pros: "Staff was very friendly."
Cons: "No usb cords."

The staff were excellent, very friendly

The check-in in Jamaica was a disaster

There were complications with my flights boarding in spokane and my secondary flight was changed without my consent to one that boarded at the same time as my first flight let me out on the opposite side of the massivr layover airport. It was only because an employee saw my struggle and confusion and hooked me up with a ride that I even made the flight dispite delta's best efforts. My TV's headphone jack on my first flight was also busted which sucked to find out after buying headphones on the flight. About halfway through the flight one of the attendants moved me to a seat with a working TV. Long story short Delta as an airline was terrible but their employees did their best to help me with what limited options they had to work with.

Pros: "Crew was amazing. Very attentive and welcoming."
Cons: "I didn’t take the flight. Due to a change in my post-flight quarantine lodging arrangements in Salt Lake City, I needed to change the date of my flight. Delta directed me to Aeromexico to make any changes. Aeromexico refused to allow any changes. So I was forced to not take the flight and buy a new ticket for a later date."
Pros: "Better food"
Pros: "Great crew. Good food. On time."
Pros: "Had seat open next to me"
Cons: "Delays on afternoon flights East create all sorts of problems; fewer options the later the arrival"
Cons: "long delay in boarding"
Cons: "Flight was delayed a bit due to a couple passenger booking/misc issues. 1st class didn’t get gate bevfood service. Oven was busted so my meal wasn’t available. Entertainment console had all channels functional except — not really an issue I just really wanted to have ESPN playing in the background"
Pros: "good flight, inflight menu and movie library"
Cons: "rude bag drop off kiosk"
Pros: "Crew lady serving back of plane was very sweet and I enjoyed her serving us"
Cons: "Bathrooms were filthy, tray tables were sticky Seats were sunken in and uncomfortable Noisy air vent No entertainment system"
Cons: "We sat for an hour on the tarmac with the plane at about 80-85 degrees and everyone sweating. Once we took off the flight attendants kept turning the cabin lights on and off and serving dinner (on an overnight flight is that really necessary?!) and waking us up. Also plane was old and uncomfortable."
Pros: "Food &entertainment"
Cons: "Mechanical problems flight delayed 2 1/2 hours"
Pros: "The service on plane was great and so was the opportunity to check luggage, although I was happy I didn't have to."
Cons: "Boarding from DTW to LAX, we had to stand for a long time on the jetway and it was really cold. It was the holding place after they checked my ticket. Otherwise, it was a great experience flying Delta."
Cons: "The airport."
Cons: "Plane very late. Boarding was chaos"
Pros: "Flight was overbooked!!!! How dare you overbook your planes? If you do that, get new plane!!! People loosing time and money.. 9 people couldn’t get seat on the play they paid for... tomorrows flight is same sting... this is last time fling delta... and we are silver medallions... who fly a lot!!!"
Cons: "Flight was overbooked!!!! How dare you overbook your planes? If you do that, get new plane!!! People loosing time and money.. 9 people couldn’t get seat on the play they paid for... tomorrows flight is same sting... this is last time fling delta... and we are silver medallions... who fly a lot!!!"
Pros: "Crew was helpful and food was good."
Cons: "flight was delayed"
Pros: "We had a terrific trip returning home. Yes, it was crowded but everything was organized and all went well."
Cons: "Airplanes should board back to front. Then people don’t have to get bumped as later passenger try to carry 2 items onto a packed plane."
Pros: "Pilot and his ability to maneuver the turbulence. Also variety of snacks."
Cons: "Felt hot in the plane."
Pros: "The movies offered were decent"
Cons: "I paid extra for a window seat I sit down after they squeezed us all in like sardines and come to my surprise there is no window in my aisles it had been covered up in plastic . First making my area narrow than all the other seats and between the plane leaving late and the terrible process of loading people on the plane . Delta airlines was all about the up sale from charging for every bag to charging for internet ,food so on and so forth. Also one bathroom in the middle of the plane ? REALLY ? Out of tissue , paper towels , and tissue one hour into the flight . What in the Hell is going on with this airline ? Won’t fly with them again ."
Pros: "very fast boarding , attentive , and easy to figure out"
Cons: "seats cushions"
Pros: "Thankfully I had an Aisle Seat so I could move around a bit. Every seat was taken and it was like a sardine can."
Cons: "Very little leg room and of course as soon as we were in the Air the person in front of me reclined his seat all the way back so the Monitor was only a few inches from my face. This was my single major complaint. The food was not great but typical of an American Carrier. The foreign airlines do better on food. The last time I went to Europe I took WOW, the cheapest budget Airline and the leg room was MUCH better. You would think Delta could do better."
Pros: "Nicer plane"
Cons: "One stewardess almonds mowed me down with cart"
Pros: "No problems occured"
Cons: "Takes so long to board"
Pros: "Very nice stewardess on this plane. Seating was excellent."
Cons: "Crew was not apologetic after we missed connecting flight due to technical difficulties with their plane. I was re-routed to Barcelona and then a very budgetary Airlines to Athens which was ridiculously tight again with seating and flight was almost an hour late. Luggage didn't come until following day. And to top it off, I thought I would be flying with KLM on both legs!"
Pros: "Seems like people that work for Delta are too old and too comfortable. Don’t want to work nor do they appreciate customers. Gate agent in SLC complained she was the only one there and could not help. Tried to send me tohelp desk which would have made me miss my flight. Flight attendant couldn’t move my back pack in bin did not tell me she had a bad shoulder. She should not be working then if she can’t lift a small backpack. Omg"
Pros: "Jamaica security and boarding, despite a crowded airport and gate, was very quick. Appeared chaotic but was friendly and efficient. Boarding was orderly and efficient. Flight was smooth, seats luxurious (comfort+ aisle and window seats with an empty center!). Arrival into ATL half an hour early."
Cons: "Only one offer of beverage on 3 hr. flight. "Food" at dinner time was chips or crackers. Arriving 1/2 hour early we sat on tarmac for 50 minutes before reaching gate. 20+ minute walk to customs, 30 minute line."
Pros: "Flight attendants were very helpful and gave us free headphones and adjusted our seats so we could sit together as a family. There were no delays to ATL just 48 hours after the power outage the regular scheduled flight schedule had resumed. Great Flight, Great Crew!"
Cons: "Everything was good."
Pros: "Movie selection and cable channels"
Cons: "My connection was abruptly changed, it took a long time to straighten out, but they eventually did."
Pros: "Very comfortable and great crew."
Cons: "N/A"
Pros: "It was whatever"
Pros: "In-flight entertainment"
Cons: "It was uncomfortably warm throughout the three hour flight."
Pros: "So many movies to watch. Keep it up!"
Cons: "The food was too sweet and salty."
Pros: "Clean & new plane, some of the stewards were fine, good pilot"
Cons: "head of the stewards was nasty with everybody, not polite and passive aggressive. Very poor food selection, even if you paid for it."
Pros: "Had a great experience on my flight. All on time, and connections were great."
Pros: "Crew was good."
Cons: "Plane was late"
Pros: "I had 45 minutes to transfer planes in Atlanta and made it in plenty of time even though it was far. plenty of information given regarding incoming flight and departure. Boarding was also easy."
Cons: "The engine noise in the plane was so loud I couldn't watch a movie. My gluten free meal was awful and tasteless. I would have preferred yogurt and fruit instead of the chicken and vegetables with a rice cake."
Pros: "The courtesy of the staff and the seats in the "delta comfort" section."
Cons: "Too many interruptions. i'm not sure if there is a way but there should be a way to only serve only those who are requesting service."
Pros: "COURTESY"
Pros: "They offered water and snacks It was quick"
Pros: "The seats were the widest with the most cushion and padding I've ever had on any flight, I think all their seats were like that. The plane we were on had more leg room than your average flight. Also the backs of the chair were very tall, leaving even mpre head room perfect for tall people . I fly a lot and sometimes my knees hit the seat in front of me or when they recline it shoves the tray to close to you. Not on this flight there was enough room for me to lay back in the seat had the adjustable headrest that went up and down and also curved in to hold your head from falling on your neighbor next to you. Love the fact they had the USB plug-in in front of you. And the crew constantly kept coming through to empty trash and offer beverages. The plane was clean bathrooms in front and back of the airplane. Over all quiet engine and we were above the wings. Temperature good."
Cons: "The crew member that was checking in people at the gate would talk so fast we could barely understand what he was saying on the overhead announcement. I was traveling with someone who was hearing impaired so we were unaware of that they were getting ready to board. The electronic TV monitor wasn't updating to say boarding to notify people that would be helpful for the hearing impaired. Or--if a crew member is muffled on the announcement or talks too fast you can't understand or know what's going on. The most frustrating thing for me and my daughter we were both expecting to use Delta online entertainment. There are no monitor screens in the seats in front of us on this plane. So we were able to use our phones, but it would not download and once It finally downloaded we couldn't upload any of the movies. Connection speed way too slow. The warning said there were too many people on it at that time. Also I like it when they offer free headphones for people that don't have them. An example that would benefit people that don't want to listen to loud people on the plane or babies that are crying."
Pros: "Perfect"
Pros: "Over all was okay, but when we all boarded the plane, they last minute said the pilot would be late, and delayed our flight for almost 2 hours. We were almost late to our next flight in Minneapolis to Raleigh which was also pretty upsetting. But, the service was decent, we didn't order any food besides the free complimentary drink & snack and the entertainment was very good. There was a wide range of films, shows, and podcasts to watch."
Cons: "Management was very bad- Delta screwed up really bad"
Cons: "Boarding was inefficient. Plane was packed to the last seat. No food for purchase."
Pros: "Movies- pro staff"
Pros: "Friendliness of omboard crew"
Cons: "Flight was more than 2 hours late"
Pros: "Crew was very organized and professional"
Cons: "The plane was absolutely freezing! All passengers were covered in the flimsy blankets provided. Even with air vents turned of it was extremely uncomfortable."
Pros: "Being on time"
Cons: "Nothing you guys did great thank you so much."
Pros: "I travelled on economy delight, flight was fully packed, yet it felt spacious and comfortable. Lightning was great. Food was yummy! And pilots gave us updates on air travel, and if there were any delays etc."
Cons: "Nothing. Had a great trip!"
Pros: "The seating in upper class is unconventional and uncomfortable."
Cons: "Reconfigure seating in upper class. We will no longer be customers for that reason alone.."
Pros: "Although there were delays they kept us informed on a regular basis as to what to expect and seemed genuinely apologetic for any inconveniences. Boarding and deplaning were smooth and efficient. I really appreciated that there was no charge for checking a bag. I am certain that contributes to the ease of everyone getting on and off the plane. Our bags arrived at baggage claim about the same time we got there. I would definitely fly with Virgin Atlantic again."
Pros: "crew was nice"
Cons: "First time flying with a partner through Delta, so they stuck us on a Virgin Atlantic flight meaning I didn't get my free Delta check in bag (a fee of $60 each way) when I have gotten it every other flight I have ever taken with them. It was also 2 whole hours late in boarding."
Pros: "My flight was canceled and Virgin Atlantic gave us a free room in the hotel Ramada. My next flight was at 18:55 and I asked Virgin Atlantic agent am I allowed to stay in the room until time for my flight comes, he confirmed yes and gave me breakfast, lunch, and dinner voucher. However, next day around 12 I got call from Front Desk that I have to leave my room right away because it's time to chack out and If I want to stay longer I have to pay. I called Virgin Atlantic agancy again and the agent run my information and said to me I can stayin the room longer. After that I called front desk to confirm that but they said they didn't hear anything from Virgin Atlantic and I have to leave the room by 1pm. All of this was really unpleasant!"
Cons: "I didn't like anything. I didn't like the communication between Virgin Atlantic with travelers, communication between Virgin Atlantic and hotel Ramada. Everything was really poorly."
Pros: "A smoothtrip run by great staff."
Cons: "Thé food was rather stodgy overall."
Pros: "- Presence of entire box sets of some TV shows was a nice touch that I made good use of."
Cons: "- EVERY damn movie is prefaced by 4 minutes of ads. - The touchscreens (at least in economy) are slow resistive screens that are horrible for fine control gestures (like slightly changing the volume or position)"
Pros: "The ground staff was on top of it and the boarding process was smooth, but the cabin crew was brilliant. I’ve never had such pleasant service on a western airline. Well done. Entertainment system is top-notch, and the food was acceptable."
Cons: "The booking process and paying for luggage is disappointing. Plus, I paid a $90 upgrade and just moved up two rows in the same section. Sneaky."
Pros: "Top glass airline"
Cons: "I lake food and good service crew"
Pros: "Although we were badly delayed the cabin service was excellent in every way. Good meal , cheerful staff and well turned out."
Cons: "I did not like the fact that my seat was between 2 small children that belonged to a family sitting behind me .It was ridiculous to put a stranger on a 10 hour flight with a 3yrar old on one side and a 5 year old on the other"
Pros: "Staff on this flight were excellent"
Pros: "The crew and food were excellent. A little more space between seats would be appreciated. The entertainment equipment was not intuitive or easy to operate. I still feel the airline did a great job getting us to London on-time and a pleasant flight."
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"
Pros: "Nothing. The whole experience was horrible."
Cons: "I didn't make it to Siem Reap because the first leg of the trip from IAD to London was cancelled by Virgin Atlantic after it was fully boarded. The excuse was that a flight attendant had food poisoning and was unable to fly and so the entire flight was cancelled. The Virgin team seemed unconcerned and showed NO sense of urgency to try and get people rebooked. Their solution was to rebook everyone on an evening flight the next day. If a passenger was only going to London, that was probably fine. But for people with connecting flights -- or like me with multiple connecting flights -- that wasn't acceptable."
Pros: "Overall comfortable journey"
Cons: "No option to book food option 24 hours before as could check in could not been done earlier than 24 hours before flight. I logged exactly 24 hrs before filled in details which took a few minutes by that time said too late to book special meal."
Cons: "It was terribly late. No one had a clue on when flight would depart."
Pros: "Francesca was the flight attende t that I had most the most interactions with was very friendly and warm."
Cons: "Food was hard and little stale."
Pros: "The entertainment selection was good, though I didn't need to see the blurb about having vloggers available before every movie. One of the very few airlines to use boarding by rows, which speeds up the boarding process."
Cons: "The legroom is very cramped, pretty difficult to eat your meal with the seat in front reclined. The crew were not very attentive: they completely missed me while I was waving the rubbish on their collection rounds. In the end I had to dump it myself in the toilet bins. The PA system is too loud compared to the rest of the entertainment, had to remove the headphones for each one of them."
Cons: "Flight was cancelled ."
Pros: "Check in was very smooth with very friendly staff. On board crew was very welcoming and service was excellent."
Cons: "Aircraft configuration of the 787-9 was very poor with 9 seats abreast making the seats very cramped and very poor leg room."
Pros: "Even it was a 12-13hrs flight, I had been my best flight ever in a long flight. Virgin really exeeced my expectations."
Cons: "given milk yoghurt with VGML breakfast"
Pros: "No one would update that the flight was delayed. They would not even communicate as to why delayed and would not put us in a different flight. Absolutely no customer service. Disappointed and would not fly jet airways again . I missed my conference lecture today as I was late."
Cons: "No communication, nor will they tell you why it's late . Nor will they move you to another flight even wen requested"
Pros: "From the check in to the service on board was very good. Staff were polite and respectful."
Cons: "The food was small. There did not serve bread with the meal"
Pros: "My first time flying to Europe! I love the service from the attendants but my seat mate made it uncomfortable to seat in my seat. Overall great experience"
Pros: "I liked that the boarding went really fast and the staff at the JFK airport was super nice and helpful."
Cons: "I didn't like how rude the airplane crew was and how useless and unhappy they were. The sits were very uncomfortable and the food didn't have any taste."
Pros: "Smooth flight"
Cons: "My economy window seat was just too cramped for a big guy on a nine hour flight"
Pros: "I felt that they were very thoughtful about the fact that it was a long flight. We got two small meals, which was perfect, and even a little gift bag with a sleep mask and toothbrush and such in it. These were just a couple of the many nice touches included in the flight."
Cons: "Very small quibble: the screen resolution, or maybe the contrast, of the personal video players was not so great. This was fine in most cases, but it meant I could not watch videos that had subtitles. Not a big deal but possibly worth fixing. Thanks"
Cons: "One toilet not working"
Pros: "first time I flew VirginAtlantic. Heard so many good things about it. It fact even our Uber driver was praising the airline on our way to the airport. But once onboard: - poor food (I mean 'survival kit' style) - entertainment station was not working - games feel like 20 years old - design (heavy red) now looks dated and suffocating - hostesses are more focused on their hairstyle than their customers"
Cons: "Back to Air France next time!"
Pros: "Food"
Cons: "Seat reclining happens even during meal time and landing! I had to ask crew to get passenger in front to put seat back upright during meal time!!! Crew should've noticed themselves and ask the passenger without my prompting!! So annoyed!! I complained to VA too"
Pros: "airline staff was helpful, friendly and accommodating from ticket check in to flight staff."
Pros: "The food was surprisingly ok and the seats in PE were comfortable, plus there were two USB ports, perfect!"
Cons: "Being woken up to be asked if I wanted to eat, twice! If I wanted to eat, I wouldn't have a sleeping mask on my face, or be asleep! Plus, upper class and premium economy didn't board first."
Pros: "Genuinely pleasant cabin crew, good service, good food."
Cons: "Virgin Upper Class seats are cramped, with very limited stowage space. Turning the seat into a lay flat bed (and returning it seat at the end of the flight) takes some effort--not the simplest of processes. I'm not tall, but my feet protruded into the aisle so I was being disturbed whilst sleeping. Seat is also quite narrow--feels quite claustrophobic when sleeping."
Pros: "Still a more pleasant experience than BA but others have overtaken. Crew make a difference though."
Cons: "Limo service wasn't great in China - asked for address of hotel - a major international chain and confusion on booking details"
Pros: "New Dreamliner aircraft was very comfortable with loads of leg room for a tall person like myself at 1.76m"
Cons: "My seat was directly under the aircon and it was blowing very cold all night which made it quite uncomfortable. Fortunately I had an extra blanket which I could wrap over my head."
Pros: "The boarding and the overall flight experience was quite good."
Cons: "There were movie options such as Sully and Deepwater Horizon, which I think are unsuitable for flights. Overall, the movie options could have had more variety."
Pros: "Smiling and helpful staff Great FREE food and drinks good movies Free goodie bag of travel goods, blanket, pillow etc Free candy for landing descent"
Cons: "Leg room is a little tight"
Pros: "The crew,food and entertainment the food has improved, the ground and flight staffs was very pleasant and helpful"
Cons: "We were flying to Miami, then into a cruise,weighs restrictions,we were find a100 dollars for a couple more kg, we were on holiday for nearly three weeks"
Cons: "Crew"
Pros: "The crew left my breakfast in the sear next to me because I was asleep (unfortunately i didn't notice till I started to disembark...)"
Cons: "I couldn't get comfortable enough to sleep very well, even though I was in a window seat (which I can normally lean on)."
Pros: "Very good on board services and nice crew"
Cons: "At boarding in Atlanta, they only checked in 1 of my 3 luggages to my final destination, the 2 others are lost..."
Pros: "The space you have with your legs is sufficient and the chairs are very comfortable. The food was really nice. I enjoyed the trip, although it was a long one."
Pros: "Everything except the plane itself"
Cons: "Plane cramped"
Pros: "We were late arriving at the airport and the checkin desk people were SO nice putting us through. Otherwise we never would have made it on the flight. Also the extra legroom seats were well worth it!"
Cons: "Nothing!"
Pros: "At JFK the lounge and service was the best I have encountered."
Pros: "The ground staff at Delhi was very helpful in giving us a new flight ticket for the next day for free eventhough they maintained that it was actually Air India's responsibility."

Bread stale. Croissant stale. Person behind me was kicking me throughout flight. Boarding slow.

just had delays and gate change

I have to we rerouted 3 times could not take the original plane

Basic level business class with few frills!

Pros: "Good crew."
Cons: "More comfortable seating."
Pros: "Comfortable seating, good food served by this airline"
Cons: "The woman seated next to me had the worst body odor ever and this was a 10 hour flight-nearly brought me to hurl. She was the mother of s flight attendant as well, and was constantly brought amenities from the first class cabin. Really not appropriate for the rest of us in premium economy"
Cons: "Not much legroom and no tv’s on a 10-hour flight"
Pros: "Great crew"
Cons: "Uncomfortable seating"
Pros: "Friendly crew, tried their best to accommodate"
Cons: "Boarding was delayed and once in the plane more delay followed. Food was pasta (again!) while entertainment was non-existent. Flight is long enough to show at least a route map."
Pros: "Crew was good overall"
Cons: "Food was overheated and bland in taste. No on board entertainement"
Pros: "Crews was excellent, always refilling water which I can appreciate so much. Keep it up! Loved the United pilot at John Wayne who came out just to say hi, let us know we were in good hands."
Cons: "Had to wait in tarmac forever from Frankfurt to Florence"
Pros: "Yes"
Cons: "None"
Pros: "Food was good & they served a full meal!"
Cons: "Crew appeared annoyed with everyone. No entertainment provided."
Pros: "crew"
Cons: "food screens"
Pros: "I don’t like it I was 3 hours delayed"
Cons: "My luggage did not arrive on the flight from Frankfort to Athens. The Lost Luggage staff was very helpful, but the process took a long, long time. Then when my luggage arrived the next morning, no one was staffing the Gold kiosk, so it took another hour and a half to get my luggage. (We had received an email saying that the luggage would be available at 7:30; no one was there to provide it to us)"
Pros: "The engagement of the crew. The coffee and cake. The attendant offered to help me with my bag to the door of the aircraft. The same attendant remembered to give me coffee later and provided the stir stick just as I was able ask for one. I felt cared for."
Cons: "They ran out of the protein meal selections.e.g. Chicken I think. Pasta with sauce and one small cube of cheese with a little salad does not qualify as a balanced mealThe attendant tried to make up for it by giving me more cheese blocks."
Pros: "The crew was really good. The food was much better than my cross the Atlantic flight. There wasn’t any entertainment so I am not sure how to rate it."
Cons: "Frankfurt airport is not very good. Why does a passenger who has cleared security in the US have to do it again in Frankfurt? It is an unnecessary requirement that causes some passengers to miss their connecting flight. I will give them a pass on clearing immigration But going thru security....no."
Pros: "Polite crew"
Cons: "1 hour delay again"
Cons: "Had to run thru airport to catch plane, thn long wait to board."
Cons: "Air was stuffy."
Cons: "Still in Munich."
Pros: "They even filled my water bottle a couple of times in addition to numerous glasses at my seat."
Pros: "Equipment, crew"
Cons: "The boarding of the plane was disorganized."
Pros: "It was an overall good experience. Very well organized. Since both legs of the flight we're half-empty, it was easier on the crew too. They were nice and helpful. Everything very clean. Entertainment choices were good. Had an excellent entertainment system."
Cons: "Food was kind of bland."
Pros: "NEVER AGAIN"
Pros: "A male flight attendance made me feel uncomfortable. I sat in empty sit with number 3 instead of 4 and he asked me to check my number on my boarding pass. WIth an extremely directive and dictating tone in his voice he told me YOU SHOULD GO AND SIT to what your ticket says. It is VERY important to be sited, although the seats are available you should be sited where your boarding pass directs you to be."
Cons: "I realized that some people of their crew are extremely insane! I have never had an issue like this, with DELTA or AIR FRANCE, or KLM, or NORWEGIAN, or SAS If it was only one persona that I had to deal with, which it was on my flight from NY to Munich I would say , it was coincidence . One person is not a statistical point and accuse the whole Company. But this was repeated on my second flight from Munich to Athens. Then I said, this is not coincidence, it is a pattern that is repeated and not professional . NEVER AGAIN WITH LUFTHANSA is my decision and my recommendation."
Cons: "Wheelchair assistance did not arrive at gate."
Pros: "I loved the personal screen with activities, cleanliness, and the friendliness of the staff! It’s probably my new favorite airline"
Cons: "They don’t have order while boarding No space for the carry on- they didn’t ask to check them for free."
Cons: "All flights in Frankfurt boarded via jet bridge. Flight to Greece boarded via a bus. Freezing weather in Frankfurt. Are Germans prejudiced to Greek passengers?"
Pros: "The crew was more helpful than the transatlantic flight."
Cons: "My seat. It was right behind the first class and as the crew rushed to serve them, they threw the separating curtain at my face as I was sitting on the corridor. It was so frequent I couldn't sleep and the passanger did the same."
Cons: "Missed my connection due to airline delay and was put on a flight 12 hours later"
Pros: "On all my flights everything was on time and ready to go. Crew was super helpful and friendly. Ready great service and constant visual of crew for us if we needed them. Was not expecting to be fed sooo much on my flights which was awesome! Seats were comfortable, pillow and blanket were a nice accommodation as well! The entertainment was awesome - made 8 hours quickly disappear! Will definitely fly with Lufthansa again when I go overseas!"
Pros: "Flight attendants we good"
Cons: "Business class seats were just regular seats without a 3rd person. Legroom bad and seats narrow. Not good value b"
Pros: "Food was great."
Cons: "Entertainment was frustrating"
Pros: "They were nice"
Cons: "They were good"
Pros: "This is the first time I actually enjoyed a meal on a flight. It was ravioli in tomato sauce, just perfect! Superfriendly cabin crew"
Pros: "Crew was great and helpful. Flight was half empty so it was comfortable."
Cons: "The plane was not very clean."
Cons: "Vegetarian meal choice not offered"
Pros: "Comortable seats, great service, combined with good food and entertainment made for an enjoyable flight"
Cons: "The boarding process was poorly executed"
Cons: "A man next to me took a picture of me when he thought I was asleep."
Pros: "Comfortable seats."
Cons: "Boarding was like a "free-for-all", the gate agents exerted NO control at all. The departure was delayed about 15 minutes (no big thing" but then we sat in our seats for an additional 45-50 minutes for a total of more than an hour!. This after an 11+ hour first leg."
Pros: "Crew friendly, good food"
Cons: "Cramped seating, can't select seat until checkin without paying (only airline we were unable to select seat)"
Pros: "The service, room and entertainment."
Cons: "Huge delays all day caused me to miss my last flight to Honolulu even thought I was supposed to have a 4+ hour layover from LAX. I had to book a room that wasn't paid for and take a flight 24 hours later. I literally arrived home with my family a whole day later than was supposed to happen based all on Lufthansa delays."
Pros: "Crew was helpful. Liked the ice cream bars"
Cons: "Repetitive food choices. Same movies as last month so if you take long trips,you run out of options. I spent 28 hours on flights in Nov and Dec"
Pros: "Efficiency...I sat three rows behind the crying babies...but with ear phones...had a pleasant flight"
Cons: "Once again - the connecting flights through Frankfurt are difficult because of the size of the airport and the location of the gates. Make certain there is enough time between flights to get to new gate. Use extra time to purchase some of the excellent food items"
Cons: "Delays and boarding"
Pros: "Extra leg room in the emergency exit area was great for a tall person. Good food."
Cons: "Boarding was chaotic and they switched the gates. The flight was overbooked. No entertainment offered."
Pros: "It departed and arrived on time. The boarding process was very efficient thanks to Frankfurt's automated ticked checking gates."
Cons: "No in flight entertainment."

Better food more confortable seats.

I do not know how, but, rude crew and counter personnel is here, rest of things looks pretty standard without any difference with other airlines, that was not the case in the past

The flight from Rome to Ams was delayed. The flight from AMS to Moscow was missed. - We spent 2h in a linewaiting for the service desk to rebook the tickets - Then, we spend more than an hour to get the hotel - Then waiting for the shuttle another 30 minutes Unexpectedly poor and slow service. The next working day is ruined with the flight in the middle

Pros: "Yes, Very good"
Pros: "Staff were polite"
Cons: "The seating space is horrendous, I am 5 ft 8 and felt like I was sitting with my knees at my chest, horrible horrible seating"
Pros: "The seats were so comfortable"
Pros: "Salimos a tiempo . El business es muy confortable"
Cons: "La comida horrible . No se limpian los baños"
Pros: "The crew was very kind"
Pros: "Decent price for economy comfort seat, 4A."
Cons: "The flight was delayed about 80 minutes and they did not informed until when I got to the Airport. I could have stayed more at home instead of the terminal. They have also changed the boarding gate.."
Cons: "When its rain we shouldn’t walk to the air plain"
Cons: "Boarding was crazy. Could not everyone in the gate area."
Pros: "Flight arrived on time"
Cons: "No food provided "due to a strike the previous day". Not sure why this would impact on providing a sandwich or snack particularly when champagne was still available for first class passengers."
Pros: "Food was great, enjoyed watching videos, staff very profession and friendly."
Cons: "Boarding was delayed and prolonged My Baggage was not transferred and was not available when I arrived in Dulles."
Pros: "Crew helpful. Food good."
Cons: "Better range of movies please"
Pros: "Our flight was delayed in Bejing, than we loosed the booked flight of KLM. When we arrived in Amsterdam, we get the recheked in flight."
Cons: "Doesn't"
Pros: "Nice attention and good food. Plane and seats are confortable"
Cons: "This return flight was much better than the flight going to Amsterdam. I believe the biggest factor was the type of aircraft. The old 747 just didn't meet expectations. The newer 777 on the way back was much more comfortable, with better amenities."
Pros: "Cabin facilities"
Cons: "They didn’t bring one of my bags"
Pros: "Seating is tight. The crew was great !"
Cons: "As we landed we had to wait on the plane for an hour and a half because another plane (Spirit) was in our “parking spot.” This made it very difficult for people and connecting flights."
Cons: "At the check in they made me pay 50€ for my luggage. This is really upsetting because from Houston to Venice they didn't make me pay. Either the website wasn't transparent or the lady at the desk made a mistake. Very upsetting, one luggage should be included."
Cons: "Flight was delayed, landing at vce took an additional 10 minutes due to no one at the jet way. Luggage service was very slow"
Cons: "Check in at Berlin was extremly slow. Staff was very unprofessional and not very friendly."
Pros: "Very friendly onboard personnel - I really had kind of homy feeling."
Cons: "Our lougage did not arrive"
Pros: "Seat 39A did not recline. The gentleman next to me spread his arms out a bit as he typed on his computer the entire way. So I did not get ANY sleep. Plus he got up at least four times."
Cons: "Except for the man next to me - great!"
Pros: "Good flight, arriving well on time."
Pros: "The entertainment options were good."
Pros: "Food and staff behaviour"
Cons: "Entertainment"
Pros: "Very friendly crew going out of way to assist in making trip comfortable"
Cons: "Had travelled KLM to Amsterdam on my first flight 27 years ago and the aircrafts are stuck in that age! Lousy seats, poor quality bathrooms, lousy screens, prefer not to fly them"
Pros: "Nice flight, nice crew, and a nice experience."
Pros: "Food was just fine, movie selection very good"
Cons: "Uncomfortable seat cushions, lights were truned on too early (1.5 hours before flight landed)"
Pros: "On both of my flights to New York City, I was amazed at how friendly and helpful the flight attendants were to the passengers. On my short flight from Basel to Amsterdam, a young French speaking girl was concerned about how to manage getting to her next gate. The flight attendants talked to her and arranged for someone to take her there. On my longer flight from Amsterdam to New York City, there was a customer who was in distress about missing a previous flight and not making it to her connecting flight in New York. One of the flight attendants reassured her until she stopped crying and calmed down. That same flight attendant was always so positive and cheerful in all she did. The rest of the crew was top notch. This was my best experience flying in such a long time. Well done, KLM crews of flights 1984 and 0645 on July 10!"
Pros: "The time keeping was very good. We left on time and arrived early on both occasion. Good organisation. Excellent service."
Cons: "Nothing"
Cons: "I can't take the flight because i'm not Chilean and I don't have a reembolse or other flight ,... nothing . Finally I take other flight with other company"
Pros: "Nothing"
Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "Entertainment was dated and poor in function. Our bags were 99 dollars each and we’re both lost and didn’t arrive. I just filed a claim and got rude service saying I should have filed the claim at the airport baggage area but there was not anybody there to do the claim then he agent upstairs said they just spoke to them and they are there and I should have done it there. This was so rude and there is no way to get back into customs area. If we paid 200 for bags I expect them to arrive on time. I’m asking for a refund of the baggage fees."
Cons: "Bit cramped for space"
Pros: "The staff was extremely pleasant. Food was good!"
Cons: "Have no complaints"
Pros: "The staff the facilities the food all ******. Will definetly look forward to choose both delta and KLM"
Cons: "No proper info regarding cancellation. Staff was unfriendly and abruptly responded to passengers."
Cons: "Old airplane with not really comfy seats. No outlets for charging devices. Very old entertainment screen."
Pros: "Cabin crew very pleasant"
Cons: "Lost our bags, little sympathy from staff"
Pros: "From downloading the KLM app to the final touchdown of my final flight, everything was an ease, checking in, the option to change my seat, the service received was great."
Cons: "The ability to state a seat or meal preference within the app would be good but otherwise all was good."
Pros: "From pre-boarding, to boarding, to the food, and the attentiveness, everything was top notch! The cleanliness of the plane was only topped by the friendliness of the crew."
Cons: "The flight was marked at almost 11hrs but ended up being only 9...not a negative other than it meant not spending as much time on board!"
Cons: "Per usual, KLM can't seem to figure out the order of boarding the plane. Should be business - priority - everyone else. Instead they do priority first, and that's usually two-thirds of the passengers. Strange choice of in-flight movies; no accounting for taste, I guess."
Pros: "The crew service is impeccable. Ground services very friendly and professional."
Cons: "The seats are very uncomfortable. The individual screens are simply outdated like you basically will damage your eyes looking at them. No chargers for phones."
Pros: "Airline staff good and professional"
Cons: "Nothing one can do, for a 6.2" guy, the metal bar that forms the shape for the pouch for magazines and such digs into knees, ESP if person in front adjusts seat back. Fold out table barely accommodates laptop."
Pros: "Excellent service and comfortable flight"
Cons: "Flight delay roughly an hour"
Pros: "No entertainment or food needed on a half hour flight. Otherwise excellent."
Cons: "Nothing​"
Cons: "sardines!"
