Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "The crew"
Cons: "The screen"

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!"

Pros: "Comfort, service food and entertainment. What more can you ask for."
Cons: "Nothing. ]"
Pros: "Fabulous flight, light on passengers, so excellent service given by the crew. Virgin goes the extra mile on service and little perks. 747-400 planes also very comfortable, compared to the Airbus 320,"

Cons: "My flight was cancelled due to technical problems! Hope to be on another flight today as I missed my connecting flights too!!"

Cons: "The seats are not very comfortable, very hard and textured seats that just don’t feel nice at all especially on a long flight. I weight about 11 stone (154 pounds) and even I felt like I was taking up a lot of room in my seat."

Pros: "Choice of movies was good, but told the flight over was better. I flew another airline. Had no issue checking one bag in for free, but I think that is standard on an international flight."
Cons: "Entertainment systems take up foot/bag space underneath the seats. Was not able to get more than one glass of wine, even though I missed the first beverage service, that is my fault though, but I don't recall it being an issue getting a drink between services. Entertainment systems had contrast issues and it seemed like a lot of people 8 - 10 had issues since they were using iPads instead of the built in monitors. A lot of wear showing on the entertainment systems remotes."
Pros: "The crew were excellent."
Cons: "Seats were ridiculously uncomfortable. The seat cushions were worn and had no padding. Very few movie, Show, music and game choices to choose from. The audio input didn't work in my seat. Major fail for a 13+ hour flight."

Cons: "I couldn't rank the food or entertainment as I didn't try the food since it was for purchase only, and there was no entertainment offered."
Pros: "Was a comfy flight thanks to not having anyone sitting next to me. If someone wouldve been next to me it wouldnt have been as nice because the seats are too bunched for international travel."
Cons: "My seat wouldnt recline properly. There were limited food options for non pork eaters. No outlets for power. How can you operate an international flight with nothing provided for those who need to charge their devices after some time. Not a smart design move."
Pros: "Flight was on the emptier side, so my boyfriend and I each got our own entire rows to lay down and sleep the entire flight. Which was great, since I had just spent 6h vomiting from bali belly on the previous flight. Liked that they accommodated my GF meal."
Pros: "All the meals and movies included"
Pros: "Getting off the stinky airplane...peeyoo!"

Pros: "Onboard crew were nice and polite. Flight was on time (a rarity)."
Cons: "The boarding crew was rude and unpleasant, the plane was boiling hot."
Pros: "Nice staff and no delay"
Cons: "Instead of crisps maybe a bit of cheese or crackers"
Cons: "Flight 2 hours delayed, started boarding but had to wait on line 10 more minutes on boarding ramp for plane door to be opened, upon landing in Dublin had to wait on tarmac for anther 15 minutes for stairs to arrive and be connected to airplane. Then had to wait another hour for checked luggage...."
Pros: "The crew is really welcoming"
Cons: "The seats are too narrow and a bit too hard"
Cons: "They left my bag off the plane. Ridiculous."
Cons: "They check for everything in the counter as if it was a low cost airline. If you go a kilo more over your baggage allowance you have to pay 100 eur. And for your cabin luggage you only have 12 kg that they check you twice and they have security staff at the airport specifically check in this."
Pros: "Food provided, staff kind"
Cons: "Was several hours delayed and check in took 45 minutes because they somehow lost my reservation."
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."
Pros: "Once aboard the plane, all went well and I experienced excellent service from the cabin attendants."
Cons: "The flight was delayed (again!) for some 40 minutes and I was worried that I would miss my connection flight in Atlanata. Fortunately the pilot made up for the delay (probably costing the airline thousands in fuel). It seems these days that every KLM flight I take is delayed. This stretch goes back to 2015! Yet KLM prides itself as being punctual. Not the KLM that I have been flying!"
Pros: "We got to Amsterdam on time"
Cons: "1. Paying for the seats we chose...that will never happen again...I'll fly another airline first. 2. The food was terrible. I have flown KLM for years, this was not what I expected. 3. The plane was very dirty"
Cons: "Flight canceled, poor communication from the airline to the passengers. Møre than 5 hrs delay"
Pros: "The crew was really friendly."
Cons: "There was a Force Majeur delay in Helsinki due to wings freezing that caused 20 minute delay to Amsterdam and made the interchange stressful."
Cons: "Services was pretty weird .. Perse or crew Leader was ok But the assistent Young one was Really bad.. aptitud and not friendly at all."
Pros: "Time and Good clean place.. in This case airpöane.."
Cons: "It was not entreteiment st all"
Pros: "Good selection of movies."

Pros: "Snooth and efficiënt with a KLM service"
Cons: "No entertainment"
Pros: "Seats were very comfortable, food was excellent, the staff was very nice, cabin was quite and roomy."

Cons: "Food had only vegetarian choices. No charging place and ambiance was noisy"
Pros: "kLM staff was great."
Pros: "Arrived early!"
Cons: "Boarding seemed disorganized."
Cons: "Didn’t happen."
Cons: "Nothing good to say about this flight. The plane was old with no entertainment. The sits where very compact and not comfortable at all. The food was a sweet bread and water. The flight attendants were rushing and will take a while if you needed anything. I felt like I was taking a bus with graffiti all over the place."
Cons: "The cabin crew was racist! She asked me to move from a seat because she wanted another guy ( obviously from her country ) to take it! Rude and racist."
Pros: "Nice crew; clean plane; decent dinner"
Cons: "No entertainment system; insufficient knee space"
Pros: "Good service onboard, good food. On time."
Cons: "Delay can occur sometimes but it wiuld be better to be explained its reason and the estimated time for boarding. The customer service at CDG airport was the worst ever and all people standing boarding desk were useless without any mind what they are doing."
Pros: "Great service"
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."
Pros: "The food service was good and the flight attendants were friendly."
Cons: "The plane was very uncomfortable. The seats were small, you felt on top of the person next to you, and there was no leg room. I am a pretty small person- I can't image how uncomfortable all of the taller passengers must have been."
Pros: "Nice seats, comfortable."
Cons: "Again, no aisle seat for SkyTeam Gold member. Also, my baggage was lost. First bag arrived a day late, second after I had left Billund and it was six days before the bag with my clothes reached me. I was told I will have 100 euro credit for clothing, but in the winter and for 6 days, this was not even close to the amount I needed for clothing and necessities, to have my time here."
Pros: "The last two times we connected in Amsterdam to Humberside our luggage was delayed. This time it wasn’t. The simple things give the greatest satisfaction"
Pros: "newer plane, good staff"
Cons: "need better and more food options, more often"
Pros: "Crew was friendly..business class seat was very comfortable and seemed wider than most Nice power outlets great entertainment system"
Cons: "Row 6 in business is after the first 5 rows and Galley and restroom. Very awkward"

Cons: "Everything! The crew was rude, no entertainment whatsoever, late boarding, late departure and bad experience with the check in process both in app and on website."
Pros: "Great crew service. Among the best ever."
Cons: "The fact that there are different airline carriers for one flight is hard. In my second flight they made me check a bag which was considered a carry on during my first flight"
Pros: "Great smooth flight staff was pleasant and the overall experience was fantastic."
Pros: "Unexpected surprise--even on a 1 hour flight at noon, they gave us a sandwich!"
Pros: "The flight crew were kind, polite, and attentive."
Cons: "Bussing to the plane was a bit odd, but the crew remained organized in doing so. When we arrived to the plane, they had both entrances open so that those sitting near the rear of the plane would enter from the back. Plane was a little chilly, but I have come to expect that one most flights."
Pros: "Quick and efficient flight. Crew very organized. Great language skills"
Pros: "Service of the staff was great"
Cons: "Turbulence, with all our technology we still cannot avoid this?"
Pros: "They flew full speed to catch up with the delays."
Cons: "Departure was scheduled with one hour delay. When everyone was boarded they mentioned a leaking toilet. It took them 1,5 hours to disable the toilet. In the mean time, no drinks, no snacks, nothing. So we should depart at 18:00 but it became 19:30. Our first drinks and meal was no earlier then 21:00. The crew should have anticipated better that the technical problem would at least take one hour and give everyone a drink at least."
Cons: "Taking off late caused me stress because I had transferring flight within less than two hours in transit originally. So we arrived later about 50 minutes so I had to manage my situation and find my next gate and be on time. And an other thing that I disliked was that I was allowed to have only one baggage which was very unusual for international flight between two countenances. And the crew was not polite enough so she made fun of my Cary-on. In short, I expected more from KLM which is famous for them being "Royal" but not acting as one of them."
Pros: "- entertainment systen was OK (movies), but has no current news - food was good - windows can be darkened progressively"
Cons: "- Schiphol airport (AMS) is small, crowded, noisy; no water fountains; toilets are dirty and insufficient in number; SFO is much better - KLM boarding process was chaotic (not by group or row number), boarding/security personnel (4 old guys) didn't have a clue - 787 is noisy, chairs are uncomfortable (my back still hurts) and very close together, they also recline way too much - food trays not collected promptly - noisy babies on all flights - clearly not enough cabin crew for a full flight - no or wrong info by pilots on timing (crew are always lying anyway) - gate is all around the back at SFO (long taxi to get there) - they inserted people in wheelchairs during deboarding thus holding everybody up."
Cons: "Did not communicate delays. Boarding was all at once without special needs people first No communication with passengers about delays at the gate."
Cons: "Arriving on time to make connection although I am not sure 1 hour 30 minutes was long enough to make our next flight. The baggage took a very long time."
Pros: "Great 1st class service."
Cons: "Food served in 1st class fair"
Cons: "American Airlines seats DON’T recline far enough. They cram too many rows making it more uncomfortable"
Cons: "Boarding very slow in Medellin -always- Entertainment only in your phone now!"
Pros: "By luck, I had a seat between myself and the other person in my row. It would have been tight, otherwise. Crew was friendly and polite."

Cons: "Seats could be bigger after all you get charge for a trip, they could also have more flights and stop cramping up the place then there’s no overhead space. Perfect example of Corporate greed"
Pros: "The agent at checkin was so kind, nice, professional and superb...I will always fly American Airlines....you have the best checkin agents, best gate agents (super funny yet professional) and also the flight crew was absolutely amazing!"

Pros: "I liked the food and the fact that we had booked good seats in Economy so we were comfortable."
Cons: "We weren't able to choose the movies etc. We were forced to watch what the airline picked on a big screen. Old plane."

Cons: "Thought we were flying British Airways - even this survey says it's BA - went to wrong ticketing desk and was sent to American - had to let our friends in Germany know the change by email - worried they wouldn't get the email in the muddle of their night and they'd go to BA gate undead of American. It was a little disconcerting"
Pros: "On time, good food, good entertainment and comfortable seats."
Pros: "The people where great. But this does not make up for what happened."
Cons: "1. Undisclosed LAX bus ride time limit to get to gate. BS 2. Undisclosed LAX bus ride to gate. BS 3. Alaska Airlines never explained at ticket purchase that it was at American Airline Terminal. Caused a 8 min walk to AA terminal from Alaska terminal. BS 4.

Cons: "THE FLIGHT WAS DELAYED DUE TO BAD WEATHER IN MIAMI."

Pros: "the only good thing I can say about the flight was that the crew was for the most part friendly"
Cons: "Everything. From the chaotic boarding scheme to the uncomfortable seats that really didn't recline. Less than 2 hours into the fight, they were out of red wine. They were also out of chicken for dinner so the only choice was vegetarian pasta. As for movies, what happened to Gogo Entertainment? I had to use their headphones to watch the movies on their screen instead of my iPad. So, I couldn't use my bluetooth headphones. There was no close caption so it was hard to watch the movies amidst the noise of the engines."
Pros: "The staff were as kind & caring as I've seen"

Cons: "Nothing absolutely Nothing"
Pros: "Boarding went very well. Seats were good."
Cons: "We missed our next flight due to being called back to the gate for some cargo issues. Because we missed that flight we had to wait 3 hours for the next one which caused us to miss our bus reservation and ended up costing us about five extra hours in time. Staff was not very attentive."
Cons: "Food was 100% carbohydrate. Not a trace of greens or protein. Our party was split up even though reservations were made long in advance. Codeshare on Air Canada"

Pros: "Departed and landed on time; checked luggage returned in a relatively short period of time; crew pleasant; plane reasonably comfortable."

Cons: "All good"
Pros: "Attentive cabin crew and decent food/wine selection, but...."
Cons: "This format of business class seating leaves a lot to be desired. There is literally no place to store anything except maybe your cellphone on the shelf under the TV screen. No room for a backpack on the floor - has to be in the overhead. Not convenient on an 8-hour overnight. Seats are tight - could not lay on my back - had to sleep on my side. No separation between seats - it was a 2, 4, 2 layout and the guy next to me coughed all night. At least I wasn't in one of the middle seats. Expensive flight for that type of setup IMHO. And given it was a 777, the plane was big enough."
Pros: "Fewer seats more space for passengers and ample leg space The food was delicious"
Pros: "Flying business class is always exciting and fun and it was a relatively good deal..."
Cons: "... but when you pay $2000 + for a business class ticket and then the lose you luggage and it’s now 8 hours later and they have not located it yet... that’s not good!"
Pros: "On time, friendly crew."
Cons: "Even though we reserved well in advanced my wife and I got middle seats in different rows. Fortunately, we both got aisle seats (the last ones available) but of course in different rows when we signed in for our tickets."
Pros: "The service and welcoming"
Pros: "Winter storm commencement in Chicago during take off didn't daunt the pros piloting this Lufthansa flight. Smiling, courteous service, good food and wine along with space to rest has made Lufthansa my new go-to for flying to Europe."
Cons: "Economy seats mean tiny unresponsive video screens. Playing a game of Mah-jong on the in-flight screen is nearly impossible. Bring your own tablet"
Pros: "Boarding process, including ground crew was good with customer service. Food was good and in-par with other airlines."
Cons: "Flight crew, including a few air-hostesses were very rude. Entertainment system and the played films were very dull. Plane was uncomfortable."

Pros: "Good experience, no issues."
Cons: "Good overall."
Pros: "Service, food quality, profwssionalizem"
Cons: "Equipment. Very old. Seating inconvenient cand cramp."
Cons: "Our plane was defective so had to be replaced. This is fine, I certainly am willing to wait for a new plane if it means not blowing up over the ocean. The problem was how little the attendants at the gate communicated the situation to us. What should have been a brief layover became a 12 hour nightmare. The gate attendants did finally issue meal vouchers but they waited until 10 minutes before all the restaurants closed and only issued $10 a person. This is enough to buy a hot dog at an airport... We were told there wouldn't be any rescheduling of missed connections until we were "airborne". This resulted in mass panic and confusion upon reaching our destination. We were told to go to the service desk, half an airport away, but once the entire passenger contents of the plane arrived at that far flung service desk, we were mostly turned away to seek help at individual gates. This lack of communication meant I missed the next next available connecting flight and now have a further six hour layover. I understand accidents happen and planes can break down but the nearly complete lack of care and customer attention is, frankly, disappointing. I've now had nearly an entire day added to my travel time. If I'd been willing to loose that time I would have paid $600 less for my ticket. United finally offered a token of their appreciation : a $100 e-voucher. I have spent more than that on food and coffee in airports for the past two days while trying to survive until my next connections."
Pros: "Crew and food."
Cons: "The old bait and switch. United is not and will never be Lufthansa. Cattle call seating."
Cons: "3 hour delay from washington to munich..missed my connecting flight and was booked on my flight to athens 12 hours later!!!!!"
Pros: "It was excellent all way) thank you."
Pros: "Flight attendants were good. Ours was German. United plane was old. Given old overnight care package (socks, toothbrush, etc.)."
Cons: "Check in at iah with united, is 1 star. Those people really hate their jobs. Never helpful."
Pros: "Clean, on time, professional crew."
Cons: "I wish there were more bathrooms available for the economy class."
Pros: "The crew"
Cons: "The automation of the check in to print luggage tags Crammed seats in regular economy Malfunction of entertainment screen Food was awful and only beer and wine were for free"
Cons: "Temp inside plane was freezing cold. Pilot was asked 3 times to adjust. People were bundled up, hugging themselves and had blankets over their heads to try to stay warm. After third request to pilot, the temperature was set to so hot people were sweating and complaining. Typical United Airlines crew who think they are driving a cattle car"
Pros: "The staff was friendly and professional . Announcements were spoken clearly. It was a nice flight to be on. You could tell everyone was doing a good job."
Cons: "Nothing everything was good."
Cons: "Not enough bathrooms. It is a real shame that United offers a grand total of 4 bathrooms for the entire economy class. People were always lined up! Compare with Lufthansa's A340 where you go downstairs and there are 7 bathrooms plus waiting space, where they also offer water, juice, chocolates, etc."
Pros: "Staff did its best even understaffed"
Cons: "The delay, bad food (all spicy)"
Cons: "Between delays, terrible good, missing connection flight, the accommodation for connection flight. All pretty poor experience"
Pros: "Others than below all good..."
Cons: "At LEAST 35% of the seats were empty..... it was a 11 hours flight and 5 hours after departure I tried to take a nape somewhere where there was no one sitting. After one hour, the flight attendance woke me up saying there is premium economy and I cannot stay there... had to return to economy. I'm a hit disappointed since It was a while after the take of and I was not taking anyone sit..."
Pros: "Nothing. Absolutely nothing."
Cons: "First, our flight UA 194 was redirected back to SFO after 2 hrs of flight due to problem with weather sensor device or something of flight. Then we were cheated and provided with Economy class seat from FRA to MAA for the next day. We paid for full Business from SFO to India but our connecting flight was changed to Economy seat. Very very very poor and fraud technique from United crew. We are very sad about this and we will never ever take United or Lufthansa again. Never ever + we will request all our relatives to abandon these kind of cheaters."
Pros: "Food, entertainment"
Cons: "Seats could be more comfortable for economy class"
Cons: "Poor WiFi. Poor video. Very small seating"
Pros: "The crew we're very friendly and professional. They took the time to fix the plane instead of flying a plane that needed maintenance"
Cons: "My flight out of Houston was five hours late because of maintenance. This caused me to miss my connection. The rebooked connection was 5 hours after we landed and still my luggage did not make it. The rescheduled flight was supposed to arrive just after midnight, but because of lost luggage, I didn't get out of the airport until 2 am and missed my ride."
Pros: "Nothing in particular. The flight was "saved" by having a friendly fellow passenger sitting next to me. She was pleasant to talk to, but that had nothing to do with the services provided by United."
Cons: "Overall, I find United flights to Europe to be fairly unpleasant. Sometimes the staff can be nice. On this flight female staff with whom I interacted were nice, but the steward who was serving people near me seemed abrupt and largely uninterested in us. In fact he lectured an elderly woman about stowing her luggage for several minutes without realizing she did not understand him. The reason was she was Polish and did not speak any English. I had called out to him several times to tell him this, but he did not hear me. The seats on the flight were very cramped (I sat in 37G). By comparison, I found the seats in the Lufthansa flight I took from Munich to Tel Aviv to be much more spacious. In comparison to Lufthansa, I think United is a second class (or worse) airline."
Pros: "Attendants were kind and helpful The food and drink provisions were good"
Cons: "A small problem with my seat back screen"
