Airline reviews

Pros: "such a big difference in size of aircraft, very comfortable and great crew."

Cons: "Seats were really old and outdated"

Cons: "Seat was shockingly small, even for economy class. TV was poor quality."

Pros: "Great crew, comfortable and smooth flight"

Pros: "Meals were excellent and plane was very clean. Economy delight is definitely an upgrade worth considering with extra leg room and space in front of you in general."
Cons: "Boarding can get crowded so don't be in a rush"

Cons: "My bag was damaged in transit"

Cons: "Good overall"

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: "Nothing. Trip both ways were outstanding."

Pros: "Great movie selection"
Cons: "They need softer seats...had to stand half the time"

Pros: "The food was okay"

Cons: "The plane seemed to be a little bit old, especially entertaining equipment"

Cons: "Staff"

Pros: "Easy and on time boarding."
Cons: "Seats are extremely small. And when the seat in front reclines they are basically in your lap."

Pros: "Staff was very friendly"
Cons: "Headphone jacks are costume, could not use my own."

Pros: "Food and service was ok"
Cons: "Delayed at the airport. Very little leg room and hot while waiting to yake off. Entertainment was really bad. Bad screen and sound quality was awful."

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

Cons: "I never expect airline food to be any good but I’m always hoping it’s edible. This was not the case, as the egg breakfast made me physically ill."

Pros: "The crew were very polite and looked smart, I didn’t find them very personable at all though. The entertainment system is fantastic and my meal was ok I guess, I requested the low fat meal, probably should’ve just had the normal one."
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: "Free everything...food, wine, spirits, movies, etc. Nice crew!"
Cons: "Seats a little hard, main dinner dish was a little odd but okay."

Pros: "in flight experience is above average"
Cons: "The computer system really needs a lot of improvement. We were checking in with our infant daughter and it took 50 minutes to check in with a senior person helping the check in person and phone calls to their technical assistance. We were told an infant is difficult in their system, and our dual national daughter was another layer of complication."

Cons: "The crew was rude."

Pros: "Crew was very nice helpful and attentionate Entertainment had plenty of variety maybe not so many new movies but enough to find one you have not seen or classic you could watch again Food was good"
Cons: "We weighted our hand luggage at the counter and then they ask again during boarding little confusing"

Pros: "The food was AMAZING. No, seriously. Everything we had was great."

Pros: "On time."
Cons: "."

Pros: "Fast check in Fast security line Upper Class Clubhouse Fast boarding Excellent onboard service Great crew"
Cons: "Old entertainment system Although the seats can be turned into a bed they don't fully recline"

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: "Food, crew, entertainment great"
Cons: "Seat were very uncomfortable.. hard, not enough leg room and there was no way to sleep comfortably with the head rest that is set up so you can rest your head on it,but its awkward and hard an in the way..."

Pros: "The staff was so helpful and upbeat and somehow they stayed that way the whole 8 hour flight. This was economy btw! More good things: Comfy seat, personal entertainment screen, really nice food. One free checked bag, bathroom was bigger, (it may have been a handicapped bathroom)."
Cons: "Nothing was a problem at all. (I saved "excellent" for the things I really wanted to emphasize)"

Pros: "Just the food and boarding was fine."
Cons: "Everything else was bad. I think crew were a little rude!"

Pros: "Food was good, crew was nice."
Cons: "Seat was broken. Button was stuck in so I couldn't keep the seat up. Also a light was stuck in the on position for the entire flight not allowing people to sleep."

Pros: "nice new seats"
Cons: "The entre food top was torn, apparently opened before I got it, also there was no salad dressing. ATTN RICHARD BRANSON: Are you concerned for our environment? The head stewardess would not refill my sports water bottle after I asked her nicely, instead she poured water into a cup which she threw away, wasting plastic unnecessarily. I told her I did not like wasting plastic and she appeared to not enjoy what I had to say. This was the same lady who handed me my dinner. Rest of crew was great."

Pros: "Staff excellent , as always."
Cons: "It was impossible to sleep as the plane seemed extremely cold and was very noisy."

Pros: "From check in to landing in London, the gracious, helpful crew impressed us with their attitude and service"
Cons: "Sound didn't work on some of the entertainment choices"

Pros: "100% best flight ever"

Cons: "Both my departing flight and returning flight had broken wifi on it. Very bummed"

Pros: "The people at Check-in were fantastic - found out you have to check-in more than an hour before flight. They close an hour before to taking bags for international flights. Although right at an hour was late, they reopened for us."

Pros: "The crew of the flight were very sweet and helpful"
Cons: "When I bought my ticket I wasent informed that I needed a return ticket out of New Zealand before entering so I had to buy one super last minute and almost missed my flight"

Pros: "nothing"
Cons: "this is not an airline, this is a bus company"

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

Pros: "Flight crew was awesome in premium economy"
Cons: "The plane was really dirty!!!!"

Pros: "Great selection of entertainment. Crew was very accommodating. Food and drink service was great."
Cons: "Boarding process was slightly hectic."

Pros: "I liked the entertainment system, free adult beverages and boarding process"
Cons: "I don't like that they have you pay extra for picking seats that have no extras. No preboarding. No extra legroom."

Pros: "Service, food, etched all fine"
Cons: "Fees to assign seats in advance are very high. Sat on the Tarmac a while before takeoff and after landing."

Pros: "Getting off the flight"
Cons: "The seat was excruciatingly uncomfortable. My legs went numb within an hour. It was hot and stuffy in board, the head rest kept slipping down and hurt my neck the legroom was tiny and cramped my knees and feet. The jerks behind me shoved their feet in the seat and I was disturbed every rime they tapped their screen. Mine wasn't working well so I had to repeat pressing my screen the entertainment selection was lame. The food was stodgy undercooked glutinous and bland. The snacks were stale and the tiny drink servings were almost pointless. Clint think I'll fly Virgin australia again"

Pros: "The in flight entertainment was above average and the seats were decent"
Cons: "The attitude of the cabin crew was generally poor; at one point when I returned the post meal rubbish one member of crew commented to another on the lack of wrappers in my rubbish the other crew member replied "maybe he ate it" as this conversation took place directly behind me I assume they thought my headphones were plugged in."

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

Pros: "The staff was nice. Boarding was quick and easy. Flight left on time and arrived early. Although the entertainment system had many options, going through lists and playing games required a lot of tapping, and in some cases pushing to make the system work. I felt like I had a woodpecker sitting behind me pushing on my head non-stop for over two hours. I was starting to go insane! Besides, it was so loud near the back of the plane that I couldn't hear anything through my cheap headphones."
Cons: "We could not eat any of the food. My son, my husband and I do not eat and/or are allergic to gluten, dairy, corn, soy and other food additives - as I mentioned above. Please have an option of food not swimming in sauces or cheeses. Plain organic chicken breast with steamed rice pilaf and steamed carrots would be nice. Maybe some steamed red potatoes and a piece of steak. An organic green apple for dessert. Forget the gluten, dairy, sugar or sauces that ruin a perfectly good ham or chicken and lettuce, tomato wrap! Or a salad swimming in dressing. We need to eat protein, not gluten for breakfast. Why not a hard boiled head!"

Pros: "Only 15 minutes late"
Cons: "Like everyone, I dislike the tight seating."

Pros: "Excellent customer service"
Cons: "Wasn't anything to not like other than the passengers that try to rush off plane the moment it arrives at the gate."

Cons: "The boarding took a long time then when they called for the zone 3 they told us to hurry up. The steward was doing everything by hand motion. You couldn't hear what he was saying. The plane was extremely noisy and we asked what the noise was none of the crew answered. This is not the normal service that I am used to from Delta."

Cons: "Nothing special - just ok - tight leg leg room was expected - no entertainment at all - wifi very slow and couldn't load a book for my almost blind father - just ok"

Pros: "Crew"
Cons: "Old 747 ER needs to be junked"

Pros: "Delta Studio"
Cons: "Food choices were not appetizing."

Pros: "Landed 45 minutes early! Allowed me to take an earlier flight Detroit to Boston which made me really happy"

Cons: "We were arbitrarily re-seated due to equipment changes, back and forth and lost our original seat selection even though we wound up on a plane with the original configuration. An international call wait of 1.5 hours was required to just get us back into the economy plus section that we had originally paid for, Amsterdam check-in was chaotic. In-plane staff was not at all helpful with our desire to get seats on the outside rows of our section."

Cons: "Had a death in the family and no one would help me get back home"

Pros: "Quick flight."
Cons: "No A/C on the flight. Good thing it was a short one... Crew seemed rather green. Oversold flight; we were the last to board."

Pros: "My aisle seat on the first flight"
Cons: "No entertainment"

Pros: "I liked that the plane was newer and the box snack was really good."
Cons: "Nothing really"

Pros: "What is the issue?"

Cons: "Delayed boarding as the first flight of the day"

Cons: "Plane was sat broken at gate and needed part to be flown in. 150 minutes delayed. Not acceptable."

Pros: "The costumer services."
Cons: "N\A"

Pros: "My flight was delayed 40 minutes in Detroit after a 3 hour lay over we boarded the plane. Then 45 minutes into the flight they said the landing gear light came on and they would be going back to change plans. My mother with Lymes disease was waiting 3 hours in Providence supposed to arrive a 11:50 instead 2:50am we were so tired missed a day of vacation."

Pros: "The organization, the shortening of the flight time."
Cons: "At the Orlando airport, the LACK OF SEATING BY the gate!"

Pros: "I appreciated the kindness of the staff at each of our stops. From beginning to end they were polite, helpful, and kind!"

Pros: "Had to go through an extra random security check before boarding along with several other passengers. Looong flight, but expected when traveling that distance. Slept and watched movies. Best part: the pilot pointed out that Greenland was visible outside our windows as we flew over."
Cons: "Nothing. It was a smooth flight. Very comfortable."

Pros: "I missed my flight for the first time and I was having a complete meltdown at the check in desk until the sweetest agent said "oh no worries sweetheart, let's find you another flight back home"... It seems so simple but with the morning I had, this simple act had me in tears! The kindness and patience she showed me was amazing and definitely the reason I will always fly Delta to any and every destination they are able to take me! <3"

Cons: "Know that if you buy an E ticket they won't assign you seats until you arrive at the departure gate."

Pros: "When I finally was assigned a seat (after my "Runaround"), I got a slight upgrade: Row 12 was a roomier seat and I got a choice of fruit for a snack."
Cons: "Runaround by gate agent: The gate agent was located about 15 yards from the actual gate. I waited there 20 minutes before anyone showed up, to get a seat assignment. When she showed up, she said she would not give seat assignments for another 15 minutes, so come back then. When I came back she said she wasn't giving seat assignments; go see the person checking in boarding passengers at the gate. That agent said she couldn't give me a seat, but watch the monitor for my name for seat assignments, then come back. Why couldn't the first gate agent say that instead of giving me the runaround and wasting my time???"

Pros: "Good snacks and movie selection. Seats were spacious and comfortable"
Cons: "Delayed flight, confusing boarding, and not the friendliest flight attendants"

Pros: "Plane was very clean and flight attendants were helpful and friendly."
Cons: "Delta's domestic terminal at JFK is far too crowded, even at 8AM."

Pros: "Decent food . On time arrival !"
Cons: "It was fine"

Pros: "Flight departed on time, arrived early! Boarding was smooth and effortless. I absolutely don't mind paying a little extra to fly on Delta vs the "low cost" carriers. Thanks Delta!"

Cons: "Efficient and comfortable all I ask for"

Pros: "The updated food is a nice change to Delta and a positive one."
Cons: "The attitude of the flight attendants was rude and not a way to act in a customer service industry."

Pros: "we got there"
Cons: "not much to like. a 55 minute delay from a small airport to the hub is going to cause you to miss your connection. Sure enough I missed my flight home and got to spend 41/2 hours in Detroit. They said it was a weather delay. But folks getting off the plane said it was a crew problem."

Pros: "I paid only $100 more round trip to DTW from SLC then I would have with other carriers, minus the hassle of connecting flights and paying fees that they don't tell you about up front (like $25 for a carry-on bag, oh and a another $12 per leg for a window seat). My experience, like my previous Delta experiences was absolutely enjoyable. From the quick boarding, super friendly gate agents, and flight crew, to the free on board entertainment, Delta has won me over once again. Oh and did I mention how great it is to board a flight, relax and watch a good movie, take a small nap, and deplane at your destination! Awesome!!"

Cons: "paying extra for leg room and checked bags"

Pros: "Everything else fine."
Cons: "Made me check my bag - even though ther was plenty of overhead bin space."

Cons: "Our flight was delayed by an hour, which didn't really affect me, as Detroit was final stop. However, there were a large amount of people on the flight with connecting flights coming into Detroit. I am POSITIVE that several of those people missed their connecting flights as the flight attendants and crew did not allow for them to leave the plane first. As people seem to be so self-centered anymore, the attendants should have announced that people were not to leave until all passengers with connecting flights had left the plane. Very sad that people can't use common courtesy all by themselves, but as they can't, it should have been enforced by the team on the plane."

Cons: "Three hours late leaving Paris. Missed our connecting flight to saint louis. Not much help from Delta."

Pros: "Efficient boarding. Friendly service."
Cons: "N/A"

Pros: "First we had a mechanical after boarding. I was rerouted through Atlanta. That flight is now delayed by 2hours. I then had to reroute to West Palm Beach instead of Ft Lauderdale. I will leave 9 hours after my original flight time and arrive 8 hours later. Just ridiculous"
Cons: "See above"

Pros: "The cabin crew serving the main cabin were exceptional. They were efficient, kind and FUN. We were an hour late leaving and 2/3 of the plane was worried about tight connections. They handled it with grace giving each person their departing gate and asking everyone to let a gentleman off with a 10 minute connection. They made the flight memorably enjoyable."
Cons: "Being an hour late isn't ideal and I understand that it wasn't their fault (the plane was late arriving into Denver. Those things happen. They still goto people to Detroit in time to make connections--barely."

Pros: "the majority of delta flights i've taken over the past few years have had huge issues - either long delays or cancellations. i won't be flying Delta again"

Pros: "I like Delta empowering women."

Cons: "Very obese lady in middle seat, 30 D who took more than half of my seat. Not sure how you can correct for that, but made my trip terribly agonizing."

Pros: "movies and food"
Cons: "CDG airport is the worst!!!"

Cons: "Because KAYAK reassigned my flight to airfare.com, I actually flew into JFK. Not my preference and the rebooking process was a nightmare. Very disappointed and I will not be using KAYAK ever again. So stressful."

Pros: "Smooth flight."
Cons: "N/a"

Pros: "There wasn't much to like. Just about everything was wrong. The plane was a newish 787, so it didn't feel old. Boarding went well because we complained about how tired we, at 70+, were because the flight was late and we'd been standing up; this resulted in us being boarded with some of the latish priority passengers."
Cons: "Everything, really. The plane was very crowded; small seats, little leg room. The meals were mediocre and the cabin staff were just barely the good side of unhelpful, officious and unfriendly The flight was inexplicably 2 hours or more late in excellent weather. No apologies given, the flight that was originally scheduled for 8 pm left close to 11 pm. While boarding the only light is a purplish ambient lighting that made it impossible to read anything, including the safety material, until the inflight entertainment was loaded up (the lights are only controlled through software-actuated virtual buttons on the screen). The inflight entertainment system is hard to use, too, designed by idiots for use by geniuses. But the very worst thing was the stress caused by Virgin Atlantic in just about guaranteeing that we would miss this flight. On our outbound voyage in January, VA, for reasons nobody knows, booked an ADDITIONAL leg from JHB to CPT on BA at 12:30 pm, even though we were already ON the earlier 9:30 BA flight we'd booked and paid for. Then, when we didn't show up for this spurious flight (because we were already in the air) we didn't book (BA swears they have evidence that VA made this booking), our return flight CPT to JBG three months later was cancelled WITHOUT OUR KNOWLEDGE. If I hadn't been interested in knowing, the day before the flight, if the return BA flight had a meal, I would have showed up at the CPT airport in April and discovered that I had no way to get to the VA flight in JHB! As it was I spent an entire day trying to get back on the flight I'd already paid for. I advise EVERYONE who uses VA to reconfirm flights over and over. There is still no explanation for this. I will never NEVER fly VA again. They are not to be trusted."

Pros: "The crew is always great. I liked the environment was cooler. It doesn't need to be refrigerator cold but keeping things on the cooler side is helpful."
Cons: "The boarding process is always horrible. Folks crowd the gate before their class is called. It creates anxiety and edginess. Never a good way to start a trip. While it always goes relatively quickly I feel it should be more organized and folks made to follow a system. Cramming right up against the ticket counter doesn't do anyone any good."

Pros: "The crew is always great. I liked the environment was cooler. It doesn't need to be refrigerator cold but keeping things on the cooler side is helpful."
Cons: "Boarding class and queuing for boarding is always a clusterf***. People will crowd the gate and board with the wrong class and that creates anxiety and leads to edginess. If a system could be worked out and enforced that would help."

Cons: "had to check my carryon which got WET sitting outside to be loaded on the plane. It was a cloth bag."

Cons: "Everything was great"

Cons: "Food choices"

Pros: "Yes, Very good"

Pros: "The crew were great! The seats are not that comfortable, it happened that I had 3 seats raw for myself but the armrests were not going up so I could not utilize them and lie down to sleep."

Pros: "The plane ✈️ itself the attendants . The entertainment on board. Really great"
Cons: "Nothing dissatisfying about the flight nor the airline staff . Very polite, very professional. It was a Great flight. For long trips this airline is one of the best."

Pros: "The crew was very kind"

Pros: "The crew."
Cons: "The time between flights."

Cons: "Everything was OK"

Cons: "The KLM crew are always great serving and treating you. Well above many other airlines."

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

Pros: "Good beverage service."
Cons: "Over an hour delayj for departure."

Cons: "The plane was very hot"

Pros: "The crew was great! The food was also much better than other airlines. And passing out whole bottles of water was much appreciated."

Pros: "Amazing services .. on time just exactly .. I feel really happy onboard KLM ❤️"

Pros: "Crew were friendly and helpful. Moved me up front in the plane so I could make my connection."
Cons: "Not having to walk outside in Edinbur4gh to board the flight."

Pros: "yes"
Cons: "not really"

Pros: "My seat at the window was great and the staff really friendly and courteous!"

Pros: "Amazing crew"

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: "Smooth and faster than expected trip. I felt free to get up and walk around on this long flight. Food was good. I sat in seat with extra leg room for the first time and it was worth it"

Cons: "No reading light in my seat..."

Pros: "Very good service, teh flight attendants made it as pleasant as possible, plane left on time"
Cons: "tough to sit on a plane for 9.5 hours"

Pros: "Friendly crew! More legroom, good entertainment and food was great! Smooth landings pretty much on time."
Cons: "Boarding could be better"

Pros: "Flight crew very nice"
Cons: "Paid $70 for seat with more leg room and was the exit role to main entrance. No overhead space for carry on: broken food tray holder. People stepping on my feet. And gather in your space waiting for bathrooms. Window seat had no room for feet because of closed door"

Pros: "Seats were very comfortable, food was excellent, the staff was very nice, cabin was quite and roomy."
Cons: "No outlets to charge digital devices, and need more bathrooms on board. I was able to sleep most of the 11 hour flight so I did not take advantage of the entertainment."

Pros: "The cabin crew was so kind, efficient, and attentive. All meals and snacks were delicious."

Pros: "She was cheerful and genuine. I have dietary restrictions but was unable to preorder a meal. She went out of her way to find an available meal for me. I also saw her bring other passengers extra snacks and drinks."
Cons: "Cramped seating."

Pros: "I enjoyed the attention to detail and comfort. Helped to make the flight easier to handle."

Cons: "Delayed!"

Cons: "Bag was lost"

Cons: "Amesterdam airport employee was really rude"

Pros: "My bagage broke"
Cons: "I paid extra fee for extra bagage which was tv and i paid insurance my tv broke and no one responces for it"

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"

Cons: "Flight way delayed 3 hours. Staff gave no information and wouldn't help rebook us onto other flights. They gave us food vouchers 2 minutes before we finally boarded, so we couldn't use them. The food on the plane had spoiled so we were all starving on the flight, and we all missed our connections. Horrible experience and wouldn't fly with KLM again."

Cons: "Two hours delay in the start."

Pros: "staff was fine"
Cons: "old old plane, very uncomfortable. Tiny bad screen made movies pointless"

Cons: "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. Also, really tired of the fake business class on these flights..."

Pros: "The flight was delayed due to fog, but the staff was amazingly helpful to make sure everyone got to their destination."

Pros: "The staff was fast and curteous."
Cons: "There is not anything to complain about besides the usual discomfort of travel."

Pros: "The staff were friendly and all smiles. Seats were comfortable and we had a quick, smooth flight from Edinburgh to Amsterdam. The breakfast supplied was an egg and mayonnaise sandwich plus a drink, which seemed about right and very Dutch in character."
Cons: "It was rainy and necessary to walk outside to access the plane; the staff should give their customers a heads-up so that jackets can be donned. Additionally, the check-in queue seemed rather sluggish."

Pros: "Professional, friendly service. Punctual, safe flight. Comfortable, spotless airplane."
Cons: "What is there not to like about KLM? I cannot find anything."

Pros: "Speed, crew, and reliability."
Cons: "Food wasn't good, no entertainment or accessory plug ins, and seats were worn out! Not comfortable at all. Great leg room though."

Pros: "Boarding was very efficient."
Cons: "Limited movie selection. Crew seemed stressed. Gave me wrong meal and then swaped for the right one. I asked for Diet Coke and was given white wine. Food quality was not good."

Pros: "KLM fed a sandwich even though the flight was only 2 hours. The crew was pleasant. Getting through the Amsterdam airport to catch a connecting flight with only an hour to do so was no big deal. Airport staff was pleasant and helpful."

Pros: "Great smooth flight staff was pleasant and the overall experience was fantastic."

Pros: "leg room economy compared to KLM"
Cons: "full flight, no upgrade possible"

Pros: "Staff, service"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Excellent service"
Cons: "Having to pay extra to pick a seat prior to check-in. I didn't, and got a decent seat anyway."

Cons: "sardines!"

Cons: "Very slow service. I wanted to by several goods from duty free. But crew served only first 20 rows of aircraft."

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: "The service of the crew onboard"
Cons: "Entertainment not to many recent movies and the boarding process was a little bit confusing."

Cons: "The food was not as usual."

Pros: "The seats were bigger across the shoulder area and had more padding than some other budget airlines."
Cons: "Wish there was more elbow room in the seat. I am a big guy and I was having to squish myself so as to not interfere with my neighbor"

Pros: "Perfectly on time, no hassle, seat OK. This is the way I appreciate a flight."
Cons: "Food. No choice, three "madeleine" (sweet) cookies for all, no sugar-free (salty) alternative..."

Pros: "Nice and attentive crew."
Cons: "Seats not comfortable in premier economy."

Pros: "Entertainment system"
Cons: "Awoke to find ill man laying on floor in aisle next to me with oxygen. Shortly after... Passenger in seat near man on floor (diabetic but no one tells us anything) needs to lay across four seats with oxygen for heart issues for remainder of trip with staff and doctor on board nearby. Nevdr informed what was happening, never offered to move our seats or move iIl passengers. Glad all turned out ok. Could have given them more privacy and better informed other passengers."

Pros: "Seats are comfortable on Business Class. Service is good"
Cons: "Constant delays specially from CDG! Poor cabin service specially on this flight."

Pros: "NA"
Cons: "Both flights through Detroit were re-routed, our luggage was lost for 4 days."

Cons: "We didn’t travel to Detroit... we were re-routed 3 times and our luggage is lost, some really helpful ppl along the way (thankfully) and some really crummy ppl too... no in between... still not to our destination"

Pros: "Check in agent extremely helpful and friendly."
Cons: "Not boarding on tarmac via bus. Sandwich - tartar sauce and “chicken” - with two quarter sized pieces of meat was terrible."

Pros: "Incredible staff. Super polite"

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

Pros: "Friendly crew"

Pros: "The food selection and drinks, given our coach class, were excellent. Nice attention to the passengers."

Pros: "The crew was wonderful. We were in business class which was modest but comfortable."
Cons: "Ground crew in Paris failed to put our luggage on plane to Amsterdam. Also, plane was delayed about 40 minutes because of Amsterdam air traffic. Captain was very apologetic to the passengers."

Pros: "The crew ask some of us to help seating a family group together. No objection. Then they went out of their way to make the trip more enjoyable for us... even offering a drink of Champagne wine (the true one, not some substitute)... Departed almost on time, arrived a few minutes early..."

Pros: "Food and wine. Entertainment."
Cons: "Sat closer to water closet. Maybe more air freshener in there."

Cons: "Better in flight entertainment"

Pros: "FA kept bumping into my seat waking me up"
Cons: "Return the 777 to 9 across"

Pros: "The only thing that I like about the flight was that it was easy to boarding"
Cons: "The food was not heat correctly it was cold and I felt that the crew rush to give out the food. The seats are terrible, if the person in front of you reclines you won’t be able to see the screen if your watching a movie and you will see the top of the persons head."

Pros: "Friendly crew, good meal and entertainment"
Cons: "Boarding agent forced me to check in my carry-on even though the carry-on fit in the cage and fullfilled all the requirements. I specifically called Air France prior to the flight to make sure I won’t have any issues as my 1st flight was operated by Delta and I wanted to confirm the luggage requirements were the same. My carry-on weighted only 5 kilos. I was extremely upset the way I was treated w/ the boarding agent behind the counter in Prague. On the top of that, her and the supervisor were very rude to my mom as they told her she had an extra carry-on which wasn’t the case. She traveled w/ a small briefcase where her mask for sleep apnea was. This is not considered an additional carry-on. The boarding agent (Czech lady and her supervisor) were not only rude but obviously lacked knowledge as well. My carry-on suitcase would easily fit in the overhead bin plus there was plenty of space inside the plane as it the flight wasn’t completely full."

Pros: "Everything was fine"

Pros: "We flew with our special needs child without requesting any particular accommodations except for gluten free meals.

Cons: "The premium economy seat is not reclined at all. The neighbor's seat is too much flexible. This is a maintenance problem. We report these problems to the crew, though there ignored... I should have chosen an economy class seat."

Pros: "Flight attendant was very nice."
Cons: "We got socked with 40 Euro fees for our carry on plus personal item being 2 lbs over. The biggest problem is they were picking and choosing which bags they weighed. 10 people behind us and before us got in without incident. Plane wasn’t even half full so they were deliberately trying to make more $."

Cons: "Plane was canceled at the last minute with a transfer desk literally assaulted by 100s of people. Only 3 persons on the desk. No lane for sky priority. Queued for nearly two hours before some airport employee gave us instructions to travel by train without any other information or tickets etc. Had to buy my ticket. Couldn’t recuperate my suitcase. Had to wait for it the next day for three hours. Up to this hour I don’t know how I am going to be reimbursed (train and plane)."

Pros: "On time. Comfortable and smooth flight"

Cons: "Delays due to to weather is not a new thing to worry, but flight delay should be informed early to the passengers so that I should have planned the arrival to the airport accordingly, but I was told just before the gate prior to boarding time and the delay was around 3 hrs."

Pros: "The crew was great"

Cons: "My flight last week they had us board and then de plane do to plane maintenance after I traveled litterly all day it added an extra hour. Then this flight Washington connection to Detroit from raleigh the pilot never showed up and extra hour went by, we got a new pilots but, then leading to faulty paperwork that took another hour and thirty minutes after boarding the plan to get sorted. When we got that sorted they then proceeded to tell us that the flight atendent had to leave and we had to wait another 20 min for another atendent to arrive before finally making our way to Detroit. They said to file a complaint and we would be compensated for our wait. Not sure if this is the right spot but I'm giving it a go. Thank you Keith Www.keithschmidt.com"

Pros: "I liked that I finally made it home despite all the drama."
Cons: "I didn't like that I booked a flight nearly 2 months ago to only find out I didn't have a seat. I do understand its legal but I don't get how you are putting customers first by causing this drama. I understand how that DR felt when your guards ripped him out of his seat. I spent nearly 3 hours trying to find babysitters and alternate rides all while the snotty lady at the desk kept saying "you may not be flying out today but I cant tell you for sure". So to insure the bottom line you overbook then bump people at your leisure? This little game effects many lives above and beyond just the passengers. I don't plan on booking with United ever again. Why would I? There are many other options that take customer service more seriously. I would love to speak to someone higher up in this organization. But, im sure that will never happen."

So due to this flight being late I had to pay more then expected to get my car out of the parking garage and got home an hour and a half later than expected which got me home at 3am versus 130am (original time I would have been home IF the plane would have been on time)."

Cons: "My flight was cancelled after being delayed a few times. I was offered to be on standby on flights that's were overbooked the next day. The closest airport was 2 hours away with a different airline."

Cons: "Na"

When I got to the counter they said they had no record of my reservation. When I showed them the Lufthansa reservation they told me it actually was for a United flight, even though it clearly said Lufthansa . I had to wait another 45 minutes in the United line to retrieve my boarding pass, then about another hour to go through passport control and security. I barely made my flight. I will never make a reservation through Kayak again. I am deleting your app."

Pros: "The seats were more confortable. They could be a bit taller for head room but space between seats and the width of seats were very comfortable."
Cons: "The crew seemed very unpleasant. The guy (head crew) was very rude. When asking us to do things he just said it with a tone that was very unneeded. You could tell he didn't want to be there. The lady flight artendant was nice just facially her expressions make her look stand off ish. They talked about passengers to each other in the aisle ways and made comments that "they've talk to this lady each several times and she's not listening". Seemed like private conversation they could try and have."

Cons: "I had to see assistant bc plane was full. Had to get economy plus and pay for that. There weren't even snacks on the flight. Not a good experience overall."

Cons: "The flight was late/ delayed over 6 hours. The crew was rude and very unprofessional. This was the worst experience i have ever had flying. I can honestly say I will Never fly United airlines again. I understand that flights get delayed, but when every worker at the flight check in desk, and flight attendants are rude and have a smug attitude as if they don't care then at that point i walk away from ever doing business with you again."
