Airline reviews

Pros: "I like that there are multiple bathrooms onboard."
Cons: "The rows are so narrow between seats that your roll on suitcase will not fit. You have no elbow room in your seat. People who live in England are very rude and would not let those of us seated in front of them to deplane. Too bad there isn’t someway to make people wait their turn."

Pros: "The crew looked after us well"
Cons: "It was all good"

Pros: "the crew was very polite and professional."
Cons: "the aircraft is small and confined, only two toilets for the entire economy level passengers for a 6 hour flight. the online entertainment lacks variety and the food was okay."

Pros: "Speedy boarding and good locker space"
Cons: "Lack of room in seat especially with seat in front reclined."

Pros: "Crew was generally nice and caring."
Cons: "Of course coach seat was not super comfortable. And speaker and screen at my seat did not work."

Pros: "Crew was nice"
Cons: "Screens have poor color quality Seat too small Legroom cut into by electronics box Row 45 next to bathroom and no windows"

Pros: "The crew was outstanding and the good choices were excellent"
Cons: "The flight was late( not their fault) and there were several technical difficulties with the A/C and entertainment system"

Cons: "Bad entertainment system"

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: "Sharp good atention in counter"

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: "Food was delicious, consistent timely service and excellent entertainment options onboard. The flight was an hour early!"

Pros: "Food and snacks!!!!!"

Pros: "Crew was amazing and we got fed so often. The movie choices were good."
Cons: "I wish I could have ordered a drink (pay or otherwise) from the tv in front of me"

Pros: "The flight crew was phenomenal, especially Daniella. Somehow we wound up with seats right next to the bathroom door, which would have been a pretty uncomfortable situation for a variety of reasons, but the flight wasn't full, and she helped us find a suitable place to sit. Also, my wife and I usually take our tea with honey vs. milk and sugar. Even though honey is usually one of the options for tea, she found a way to accommodate our request. The lunch meals were the best I can remember in a long time on an airline flight. They might have been the best I've ever had. The chicken curry was authentic, flavorful and spicy. Frankly my outbound flight had problems. My luggage got damaged. The transfer experience in Manchester left a LOT to be desired. I wasn't planning to use Virgin Atlantic again, but this flight crew (Daniella especially) redeemed Virgin Atlantic. They were attentive, pleasant, diligent."
Cons: "Only thing I didn't like about this flight was the boarding area. Once you get into that the area, you don't really have access to appetizing food (only vending machines) or even restrooms. That's one thing that could be improved."

Pros: "The rear section of the plane had lots of room (empty seats), enough to lay down across three seats. Pleasant and helpful crew."
Cons: "Minimal food available between departure and arrival meals; 10 hrs or so is a long time to get by on potato chips."

Pros: "Crew were great"
Cons: "Uncomfortable to sit for eight hours"

Pros: "Entertainment Meal service and quality"

Pros: "Service and food are good. Crew very friendly and tries to please everyone."
Cons: "Chair could be more comfortable compared to other seats who transform without turning over. Still - much much better than BA."

Pros: "Friendly crew, clean, well presented cabin."
Cons: "Flight was late (again). Food was very little for an international service (small packet of pretzels + savoury muffin."

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: "The onboard crew were lovely."
Cons: "Stood at check in for over 30 mins with no staff in sight. Boarding was a disaster. Staff was not prepared nor organized and the crowds were unbearable. Upgraded seats were laughable and not worth an extra $60. Food was mediocre. Entertainment would have been good but GE touchscreens are so old, they were difficult to work."

Pros: "Quality of service was good in the plane"
Cons: "Not many good recent movies / shows on in flight entertainment. Food was okay. But, the quantity was too little. It took a really long time for a second boarding pass check at London airport. Other airlines don't usually ask for a second check in"

Pros: "Safety. Service."
Cons: "Lavatory was icky and other passengers messy."

Pros: "Service"
Cons: "Seats in economy are way to small and very uncomfortable if tall. Too close to the seats in front of you. I was miserable all the way to London."

Pros: "I could sleep in peace the entire flight and the food. The little care packages we receive with a sleeping mask and ear plugs are also fun and useful."

Cons: "Flight was cancelled ."

Cons: "The crew was rude."

Pros: "Virgin atlantic is the best airline with Dreamliner"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Crew"

Pros: "The flight was late but the pilots made up most of the time"
Cons: "Uncomfortable seats"

Cons: "My headphones and those of my neighbors did not work."

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."

Pros: "Safe flight, good crew"
Cons: "Food quality was poor."

Pros: "Smooth boarding process"
Cons: "Delays caused us to miss our flight from London to Vienna"

Pros: "Staff excellent , as always."

Pros: "First off,the staff is awesome. From the check in people to the flight attendants .... The entertainment was up to date and the safety video was awesome.. Great conditions for economy class.good leg room...I give them a 5 star rating ... I only wish they would do more flights to other countries overseas ..."

Cons: "The cabin was extremely dirty, the food was awful."

Pros: "I loved wine and whiskey. Blanket and blindfolds, headphones helped me sleep. Care packet with toothbrush came in handy."
Cons: "The Sears were tight and thin. I felt pushes from behind. I could not recline the seat enough. I didn't get a window seat, which is my favorite."

Pros: "Very happy with everything"
Cons: "Air conditioning"

Pros: "Entertainment was okay, flight crew was nice"
Cons: "After checking in my wife and I were in separate seats. I was then unable to change my seat after check in. After calling the helpline I was informed that it is impossible to change the seat after checking in until I am at the airport. No other airline has such an obscure, in efficient rule. Virgin takes pride in being a step above their competition - I didn't see it. I have flown international on Delta, American Airlines, British Airlines, United, and others and any difference in the experience was negligible."

Pros: "Flight staff exceptionally friendly and helpful"
Cons: "More leg room always appreciated"

Pros: "Make sure you bring food with you because they will starve you. I also asked for band-aide 2x but it never came. Service is very poor."
Cons: "Service is very poor, ground and air crew are not friendly, can even be driscriminating. There's scarcity of food in this flight. They need to give snacks more often than one in a 13hr flight."

Pros: "No middle seats. Crew was nice. More space for people."
Cons: "The ceiling next to the spot lights or calling for help was dirty. I was expecting everything to be wiped. I turned my air fan on, and my there were some brown spots on my hands. And I looked up, it was dirty up there."

Cons: "It was pretty hot on the airplane. Could have regulated the temperature a bit better."

Cons: "The seats could have been more comfortable"

Pros: "On time departure and smooth landing"
Cons: "More leg room. Stop nickel and dining passengers to appease investors. Delta is an evil corporation"

Pros: "Despite boarding late, and sitting on the tarmac for half an hour since we missed our take off time, and having to move passengers around to balance the weight on the plane, we made it home alive."
Cons: "We landed over half an hour late. Flight attendants needed to move passengers to balance the weight on the small plane, and asked for "volunteers." When there were none, the FA stood in the aisle and said we just weren't going to take off if nobody volunteered. They should have just MOVED people."

Cons: "There was a lot of turbulence and people screaming in fear, it always makes me feel better when the crew says something reassuring to make people less anxious."

Pros: "Charging at every seat is great."
Cons: "All of the plane extras (e.g. WiFi, food service, etc.) were out of commission for some reason. Without WiFi, I couldn’t watch anything on my own device, and I would’ve had to pay for a headset that is compatible with your screens."

Pros: "The crew was amazing."
Cons: "Cleanliness"

Cons: "Flight was delayed over an hour. Missed my Easter dinner plans... :("

Cons: "All good"

Cons: "It was very hot in the cabin during the flight. Several passengers noticed."

Pros: "Smooth flight on new B757 with good entertainment system and Comfort+ seating legroom worth the extra cost but I was disappointed that the overhead storage bins above our seats were filled by pax from other seats before we arrived even though we were given priority boarding and the toilets were filthy."
Cons: "Boarding passengers should be more carefully controlled with amount and size of cabin luggage and where they place them. Toilets should be more frequently cleaned in flight."

Pros: "The movies were spectacular"
Cons: "Food was a bit plain"

Pros: "loved the airbus and in flight movies good stufg"

Pros: "Quick and on time. Comfortable seats."
Cons: "Not many movie options."

Cons: "It was so late I missed my connection to sun valley flight. There was not another flight for 8 hrs!!! I think the sun valley flight should have waited for us. It was a matter of 10-15 min. Crew did not try to board people quickly to get us out of San Diego. 5 more minutes might have made a difference."

Pros: "It was on time. Flight crew was courteous. Plenty of room and comfy seats. Good entrainment media"
Cons: "Wish it would've had more movie options"

Pros: "Stewardess named "Mel.""
Cons: "Paid for upgraded seat to "Comfort" for both of us. Bank account was charged for both. Got to gate and only one of us was upgraded. Gate agents said there was nothing hey could do, and that I had to call customer service. Nothing, in person. Terrible"

Cons: "Seat 43B?! I checked in 12+ hours in advance."

Pros: "Nice views on the east side of the flight. Caught Mt. Rainier, Mt. Adams, Lake Tahoe, Yosemite Half Dome, Edwards AFB, downtown LA Free Gogo in-flight wifi allowed Google Maps to work well, though nothing else seemed to load. In-flight magazine was well-written."

Pros: "Friendly crews."
Cons: "Crying girl whole flight"

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: "The flight crew were really nice and I was really comfortable in the Comfort+ section of the plane. It's a nice upgrade for Delta and hope the other airlines follow suit. Granted I had a very active infant, I didn't have any problems."

Pros: "It was a smooth ride and overall very enjoyable flight as the entertainment was very enjoyable and a lot to choose from"
Cons: "It was a smooth ride and overall very enjoyable flight as the entertainment was very enjoyable and a lot to choose from"

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: "Leg room not as bad as general chatter."
Cons: "Seat width a problem. Center seat passenger used arm rest subject me to cart hits and hits from other passengers. Aisle seemed narrow. New Embracier airplane with 6 seats across."

Pros: "Decent food"
Cons: "Bad delay Flight attendants not friendly"

Pros: "Didn't know you could get complimentary meals anymore! The movie selection was awesome too!"
Cons: "Why is the complimentary Wi-Fi and messaging only for T-Mobile subscribers?"

Pros: "Snacks included bananas."
Cons: "Forced to gate check a bag that fit within the size constraints."

Pros: "The cinnamon cookies, the in-flight movie selection, and the helpful flight crew helped make this flight not as bad as it could have been."
Cons: "There was an infant in the seat directly behind me that chose to cry and scream through a large part of the flight. The mother of this child did not/was not able to keep the child from crying. Even with headphones on, this child's crying persisted to pierce the ears of every passenger within 5 rows of it."

Cons: "Boarding was ok however person sitting next to me, her seat was double booked. Luckily the other person also got Comfort seat."

Pros: "Read above"
Cons: "Read above"

Cons: "Flight from LAX to SAN was good once we got across the airport from Westjet terminal to the Delta terminal. LAX is never simple! Comfort on aircraft today is never comfortable unless you pay the extreme pricing of premium seating."

Cons: "Strangely cold!"

Cons: "Frankfurt connecting flights, security, and Passport control are terribly inefficient, with unclear guides to get passengers from B gates to A gates."

Cons: "On-time departure and arrival, clean and well-maintained aircraft, good crew, decent meals (2), very tight seating in Economy without much comfort."

Pros: "Crew was the best ever."
Cons: "Space is always an issue on super Kong flights, so any improvement for these 11 hour flights would be great. A place to stretch somewhere?"

Pros: "Airbus airplane with four seats in the center for our family, good movie selection."
Cons: "Check-in at Frankfurt Airport was hard, we were directed to kiosks that did not work properly and then finally found help at the family check-in counter. Food is very average. Had to take a bus for boarding the plane on an international flight."

Pros: "Friendly crew, great food, comfy seats"

Pros: "The crew was nice and the movie selection was decent. Food was ok. As good as it can be when you pay $2,500 for a flight ticket knowing that they are not really there to offer you a service, they are there to make their own money knowing that as a traveler you really have no options other than an airplane if you want to go across the ocean."
Cons: "Seats become smaller and smaller...and you keep asking about my experience...$2,500 to travel seating in a miniature seat with no leg room is a bit much...and I know no flight company cares about this...we have no choice...either take that or don’t travel, right?"

Pros: "Flight left and arrived on-time. Flight attendents were pleasant and helpful. Food portions and choices were good, and Lufthansa is always generous with drinks. Good value for money on Lufthansa."
Cons: "Boarding was chaotic, as clear instructions were not given about which group was boarding when and where to line up. Also Lufthansa did not do a good job managing carry-on bags, so that it took way too long to load people and many bags were left over once overhead bins were full. Seating area is cramped in economy."

Cons: "Few toilets for two sections and seats too close, if it is not uptight the seat in front of you. You can not enjoy and watch movies."

Pros: "New international terminal in San Diego is very nice"

Pros: "Service on the DFW-->FRA leg was phenomenal (ratio of attendants to fliers). Food was delicious and seats very comfortable."
Cons: "Boarding process and organization could have been a bit better in communicating access and groups. Not super critical, but the goal in in process is to be as efficient as possible."

Pros: "It was very smooth, the connection was great, boarding went easy, service was nice."
Cons: "Couldn't check in online and because I booked pretty late, didn't get the seat choice I wanted. I purchased the flight via the Lufthansa site, but then on check-in, I found out that the first segment was SAS, so neither the Lufthansa site nor the SAS site let me check in online."

Cons: "Never made the flight because my first flight was delayed."

Pros: "Movies"
Cons: "One of the female flight attendants got impatient with a few passengers."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "The flight left 19 minutes early, stranding 7 people who were connecting from New Orleans. We ran across the entire airport and made it to the gate before departure time. The employee at Lufthansa Senator lounge was nice enough to tell us that the crew must have felt like leaving early. She was very nonchalant about the whole issue. She also refused to assist us, and told us we needed to exit the airport and reenter through the ticketing counter. I upheld my end of the deal by reaching the gate in time. This situation needs to be rectified."

Pros: "Smooth flight. Fairly good meals. Friendly crew."

Pros: "Flight was on time, and smooth. Food was OK. Very efficient crew."
Cons: "Wheel chair accommodation in Frankfurt is poor, doable but not to the US standards. Lufthansa gate staff member took us to the wrong elevator, ended up outside security and had to go through security screening all over again, now late for flight and not early boarded. Was told she was only on the job for 2 weeks, I don't blame her for her incompetence I blame her management! Plane was loaded on the tarmac via a bus for a large international flight...no gate?? Seats in economy class are equivalent to those on a domestic flight, fairly uncomfortable on a 12hr flight. Many of the entertainment choices were not available, you can select it but all it plays is a short commercial."

Pros: "Service is good"
Cons: "Food is not good. But you can't expect that with any airline today anymore. Entertainment system wasn't working at my seat."

Pros: "A lot of legroom and good food for an airplane! The inflight entertainment has games, shows, movies, and a cool map. Plus the crew was friendly. This economy flight felt like premium!"
Cons: "Nothing to complain about!"

Cons: "There was an issue on the bus to take us to the teminal cuz a passenger took another's passenger's backpack which looked exactly the same but they made us wait on the bus til the mix up was settled. A lot of the passengers got frustrated cuz we had connecting flights and the workers by the plane didn't care including the bus driver. We finally went but we almost missed our flight .we had to literally run to the gate to make it."

Pros: "Food, drink, viewing options on the personal monitor."
Cons: "The seats are terrible! Too small and way too close together!"

Cons: "It seems like my gluten free meal request did not go through. But I must admit it, It could also be my fault"

Pros: "The video library was huge, current and very helpful. The good was great"
Cons: "Way too stingy with ice - 4 ice cubes at one time was the max allowed."

Pros: "Very comfortable and the flight crew were extremely friendly and helpful!"

Pros: "Friendly service, good food."
Cons: "A bit too cold."

Cons: "I was transferring from an international flight and was not able to check 8n online, thus I didn’t get to choose my seat. I ended up squeezed in a middle seat next to a man who was served a lot of alcohol and took up more than his share of room."

Pros: "In this day of continuous service cutbacks Lufthansa has managed to keep amenities that make long flights bearable. The boarding was early and efficient. Meals were decent and plentiful. Hot hand wipes were provided. Hundreds of video entertainment options and fairly friendly English speaking flight attendants. I recommend paying the small upcharge to choose seats with extra legroom. totally worth it on the long haul"
Cons: "Be there early. They board early"

Pros: "Excellent crew.. very attentive to everyone’s needs. Great movie screens ..large seats .. clean plane .. overall great 8 hour flight"

Pros: "Good service, good IFE, smooth, great cabin crew, no complaints."

Pros: "Same as above."

Cons: "I didn't fly with Lufthansa...n I didn't fly to Frankfurt..right now I'm in Zurich...Switzerland..."

Cons: "The forward economy cabin was too cold. When the passenger in front of me had his seatback all the way back, I could not get out of my seat, lean forward, nor see the entertainment screen or eat easily."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "We missed the conection flight....."

Pros: "Crew we're very efficient and courteous."
Cons: "Seating comfort.The seat from Frankfurt to Mumbai was not very comfortable. The assigned seat didn't recline. Had to change seat but the old aircraft seating comfort was not up to business class mark."

Pros: "Left on time and arrived 35 mns early, can’t beat that ( ok we had tail winds)"

Pros: "I am in love with these guys! They made me feel very welcomed and proved that German quality is the highest one. The crew was just brilliant! Incredible comfort. Thank you!"

Pros: "Generally the whole experience with flying Lufthansa was a positive one. Comfortable seats, good leg room, pleasant staff"
Cons: "Nothing really other than we were late leaving/arriving and such a much reduced time on the layover in Frankfurt"

Pros: "Safely got to Munich at last"
Cons: "Flight was 1.5 hours delayed overall. Gate was changed, arplane had to be replaced. Replacement was so far away that bus transportation to the plane was necessary. Crew wasn't too attentive."

Pros: "Nothing special just a typical early morning domesric flight no entertainment on board food was a tad bit better going back to the states then coming to europe and at least we boarded at the gate not like when we flew Frankfurt athens where we took a bus like we were in the 80s like cattle that was embarrassing at this time and age"
Cons: "Just happy to have made it safely but nothing special to boast"

Pros: "Boarding to exit all went smooth"

Cons: "Full plane"

Pros: "Everything! Excellent stewards too!"

Pros: "Entertainment options were good and varied."
Cons: "We were significantly delayed on take-off, landing, and taxi to our gate, and the staff was very rude about the whole ordeal. One flight attended shouted at us over the intercom several times. I won't be flying Lufthansa again. The food was inedible and the seats were horrible."

Pros: "Everything"

Cons: "Free wifi"

Pros: "Perfect"
Cons: "Nothing. Flight was amazing"

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

Pros: "Flight and the crew!"
Cons: "Staff at the airport pushing you to upgrade to first class but not making it clear only the first trip from Athens to Amsterdam which the first class uses same uncomfortable seats as the economy to pay extra 130 euros ridiculous airfrance stuff! I should have flown all the way to NYC first class!!!"

I will recommend KLM whenever I can"
Cons: "the headrest is hard. Apart from that- all was fine"

Cons: "We were allowed to choose our seats from SFO to Amsterdam but not for the return flight. I like to be able to choise my seats when I book the flight. Choosing seats 24 hours before is not convenient when traveling for the return trip."

Pros: "The crew"
Cons: "Seat comfort"

Pros: "Crew was great and professional."
Cons: "Entertainment controls were outdated and confusing to operate. There were no charging ports."

Pros: "One crew member was very good but all were not very available or checking on people. I had a seat that I purchased and it was very hard to recline I only found out that it did if fact recline it the last hour to hour and a half of the trip! It was a difficult push back to get it to recline"
Cons: "If I knew how to recline my seat earlier. I did try several times"

Pros: "Being fed was amazing and watching free TV was great!"
Cons: "I wish there were personal fans because it got uncomfortably hot sandwiched between people"

Cons: "Too much activity in the cabin during the flight."

Pros: "Face recognition was amazing"
Cons: "Too hot on plane"

Pros: "The food rocks! I know that I will always be eating well with KLM. The staff is always so nice, professional and cordial...I always know I'll be in good hands with the flight. KLM #605 from Amsterdam to SFO---please pass the praise to all of them."

Pros: "The crew was fantastic! Our needs were constantly being met and just about the time you thought you might want a snack or a meal, the attendants were already heading down the aisle. Because of an allergic reaction, I asked for ice a number of times and the attendants were more than happy to meet my needs."
Cons: "The seats were very close together. The trip from New York to Amsterdam seemed a lot more comfortable than the return flight. The food from NYC JFK was better than the food from Amsterdam. The movie selection on both flights was a little disappointing."

Cons: "Flight was cancelled."

Pros: "Need better quality tvs for such a long flight and better movies There were only 4 Bollywood movies and not the latest ones either"

Pros: "Sound was broken on my TV set!"
Cons: "Called stewardess twice to assist. No response!"

Cons: "Our two hour connection in Paris became 30 minutes because Air France was late in leaving Washington. So our luggage didn't make to to KLM to Amsterdam. My poor rating was because the luggage handling was really poor. Lots of flights from Paris to Amsterdam (almost hourly), but my bag showed up 12 hours later. My wife's bag took 36 hours. And yes, we checked in together. There were lots of confusing messages"

Cons: "The cabin crew was racist. She told me to move back from an empty seat just because she wanted one of the guys ( from her country ) to set on it! Very rude and racist."

Pros: "Entertainment"
Cons: "Food and one bathroom out of service makes an awful flight"

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

Cons: "... ear plugs, masks, good food or even picking seats? I remember when it was all complementary and standard on overnight flights. Oh, and the vegetarian breakfast was unfortunately poor as well. I know you can do better, because you used to."

Pros: "Nothing really"
Cons: "Flew KLM 27 years ago and the airlines seem to be stuck in the same era. Food is poor quality... Have you recently checked the Gulf carriers."

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."

Cons: "KLM crews look unhappy with their work. Everything they do is a favor not duty."

Pros: "The flight was great."

Pros: "Flight was on time and quick and comfortable"

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."

Cons: "Why do the crew have to slam the overhead and catering compartments to get them to shut?"

Pros: "Fortunately, the plane was not full, so people could spread out a bit to create extra room. The food was really good! (surprisingly)."
Cons: "KLM's new configuration for this type of plane made the seats even narrower than before. While leg room was reasonable, the 3 abreast seating meant a lot of discomfort, especially in the row right in front of the restroom."

Pros: "Food and staff were great"
Cons: "Entertainment system old and not as many options as other KLM flight. No power on aircraft for charging"

Pros: "Very good flight, excellent service and good food."

Pros: "It's the best flight I could get for such a low price. But don't expect to to get the best and newest planes around but it's still overall a good experience."
Cons: "Quite bummed the plane didn't have wifi / USB"

Cons: "Flight delayed ... Myself and three other colleagues didn't have our luggage show up from KLM flight from Amsterdam to Brussels...even though all of our luggage was labeled "priority". Once in customer service line, we looked and saw that many of the other passengers on our flight also never received their luggage. We estimated that 20-25% of the people on that flight did not receive their luggage as they were in line with us for the same problem. Hard to understand how so many pieces of luggage could have been overlooked and not loaded on our flight. Obviously there is a huge gap in their quality system to ensure mistakes like this are prevented."

Pros: "KLM food and service are great"

Pros: "It was very comfortable"
Cons: "The crew was great"

Cons: "Surprised to find out that there was no rock/metal playlist available within music menu, considering that Finnish artists/bands are famous worldwide and very proficient in this genre."

Pros: "nothing"
Cons: "the flight was delayed, boarding was the slowest ever and we received something to drink after 1,5h of flight"

Cons: "Could be better, say, like with Singapore Airlines.."

Pros: "Seat was comfortable, food was surprisingly good."
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "A350, smooth and quiet. Nice plane"
Cons: "Seats in business are a little crowded and close together. opening to get in and out of seat is minimal"

Cons: "I was not allowed to board the flight and made to wait for 4 hours at the Paris airport. This is extremely disheartening and frustrating to say the least. I would want to rescedhule my upcoming flight to avoid such inconvenience."

Pros: "1. Leg space is bigger then on other companies 2. Crew was really affable 3. Free wine"
Cons: "Meal was not too hearty. Breakfast in Indian style was too spicy for me. May be I should request a special meal on check-in. And one more thing, Helsinki airport is cold for me. I spent e hours in down vest. Be warned."

Pros: "Flight attendants are polite"

Pros: "I will recommend to my friends and families."

Pros: "Seat, new plane, service"
Cons: "Amenity Kit could be improved, food was very good but could add more appetizer choices."

Pros: "The blueberry juice was good!!"
Cons: "Sitting by the bathrooms. There weren’t even pretzels."

Pros: "I liked that there was a smaller airplane on LED - HEL route: it gives more "feeling of flying" than the bigger planes do."
Cons: "I didn't like the fact that it was not indicated in advance (when the tickets are sold) that LED - HEL route is operated by a different airline, even though that airline is a Finnair's partner. It would have been better to have a complete information up front. But the airplane and crew were excellent."

Pros: "The meal that they served was great."
Cons: "The leg room for someone that is 6ft 4in is not the best."

Pros: ".My flight left on time ,smooth landing and the cabin temperature seemed more normal than the usual cold interior. Cabin crew were friendly and helpful from JFK to Helsinki and Helsinki back to JFK . Overall a good airline but far from premium."

Pros: "Friendly service, clean airplane, great food."
Cons: "No leg room in economy. Worse then United and American Airlines!"

Cons: "good morning aircraft flew late 1 hour. arrived in Finland late. our aircraft departed. now sit 3 hours and waiting for other aircraft. plane crashes in 12.45 the bottom and arrives in Riga in 2.00 days."

Pros: "Took over an hour to check in. There were at least 300 people in line with one person checking economy in."

Pros: "Finnair was tolerable for a 1.5 hours flight. I tried blueberry juice for the first time and quite liked it. There was no food on this flight."
Cons: "Nothing to complain about for the short leg."

Cons: "Left the cabin lights on most of the trip and kept interrupting with announcements to sell duty free and other things when most people just wanted to sleep. Flight from Chicago to Helsinki was much better."

Cons: "This flight was delayed 5 and a half hours and did not arrive into Chicago until almost midnight."

Pros: "Clean and well appointed plane, enough room to get comfortable, great on-time performance."
Cons: "Only coffee served over a 3-hour flight"

Pros: "Excellent service, professional service, good food that I did not have to pay for. Good flight, would take Finnair again."
Cons: "They answered my question professionally. As I disembarked the plane in Chicago I asked whether Finnair had armed guards. I was not detained, and was not questioned. The crew told me Finnair does not have them but I don't think they appreciated the question."

Pros: "Airbus 350, quiet and smooth. Wifi, booking a taxi on board and being met on arrival. Good seats in business."
Cons: "Bag collection was chaos and took too long, it's not such a busy airport"

Pros: "Friendly staff, frequent food, frequent drinks (including wine) included in price of fare."
Cons: "Boarding method. Should board people furthest from the front of coach first to avoid clogging of aisle."

Pros: "This flight was co-shared by British airways. After our horrible flight from San Diego to London, we decided to upgrade our returning flight from London to San Diego to a economy plus premier. This time the plane seems newer and recently refurbished. The seat can recline more, with lump bar support and nice foot/leg rest. It has a bit more legroom. The cabin is nice and new with large view touchscreen TV for each seat. Gluten free meal was good, I'm just glad they finally boarded the plane with my GF meal (after repeated unsuccessful attempts). The service was great, our BA attendants were polite and attentive."

Pros: "Polite crew.. 2 meals.. very smooth overall"
Cons: "Not enough leg room.. had to physically climb over neighbor to get to the aisle"

Pros: "The flight was great...the staff are wonderful people...they are so sweet and kind...they work so hard...the service was great...I love their personalities..The Movie selection was awesome...Because of my broken leg, they were there to help me right away...amazing crew...will be flying with them again in October....looking forward to flying with British Airways again... Thank you for the care... Yours Truly, Sylvia Smith..."
Cons: "I have no complaints at all...."

Cons: "After waiting around in the airport for almost 10 hours we were finally told the flight was cancelled and my direct flight turned into a taxi transfer and 3 flights with a day lost on my vacation. I was not offered any compensation however I heard some passengers were given $7 food vouchers to be spent only in a small convenience store that was the only store open."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Flight left 4 hours late due to mechanical problems with a very , very old plane. I paid extra for an exit seat that (bc the plane was so old) had cold air seeping in that even with 4 blankets on, a sweater, my jacket I was frozen the whole flight and caught a terrible cold that I have now had for a week."

Cons: "American Airlines charged me 100.00 dollars for 1 extra luggage, ridiculous! !!!! Also we took off 1 hour late without any notice..... Flight to Europe with AA sucks..."

Cons: "The movies did not play on my screen. I tried to use the screen on the seat next to me and the movies quit in the middle. It was very annoying."

Pros: "I was glad that it was a direct flight, and the crew was nice."
Cons: "The seats are too small, and there were two empty rows behind us, but the crew seemed to be using them to sleep and did not allow anyone back there. The monitors were in the aisle, and I could not see it well, and I was never offered any headphones, so I could not watch the in flight entertainment. Overall, the flight was pretty disappointing."

Pros: "Staff as always is polite"
Cons: "The man sitting next to me required two seats. The arm rested had to be lifted to my seat to accommodate him. I complained but the flight was full and my seat could not be changed. I was told that British Air policy was not to require extraordinary over weight people to buy two seats. No, instead the person next to that overweight person has to suffer. A very stupid and unfair policy. As a result I will never book Finnair or British Air again if I can avoid it."

Pros: "Polite and friendly flight attendants, smooth boarding procedure"
Cons: "Trash everywhere on the plan by mid flight.... Broken tv screen"

Pros: "Individual seat video screens / media selection for such a long flight. Food also good, with good beer / wine selection"
Cons: "Bag never was placed on this flight, for whatever reason. BA had almost 4 hours to ensure its inclusion--but without success. It was delivered within 48 hours to my home, though, with all contents in tact."

Pros: "Courteous attendants on board! Food not bad!"
Cons: "Flight was delayed by more than an hour and there was on one announcement unril we boarded! It would have been nice after half an hour to get an update."

Pros: "Crew staff pleasant although did not particularly take the initiative to help customers."
Cons: "Boarding process at Heathrow was chaotic. Could not hear announcements and the response was a large crowd pushing towards an unclear entrance point. The seats are quite small and recline a minimal amount My biggest complaint is that four of us traveling together could not be seated in close proximity to each other, despite making that request over four months before the flight. Extremely frustrating to deal with check-in process as well--because we booked on Finnair, we could not use online system. This was an aggravation considering we were traveling. And--one of our bags was left behind in London. \"

Pros: "Good airplane, big and clean. Very punctual ."
Cons: "Not food just a very small drink"

Pros: "Usually a 7 hours flight is a torture for me, but with their outstanding service I didn't notice how time flew by.The flight attendants were providing us with all necessary information about next connections."

Pros: "Overall a great flight."
Cons: "Breakfast not their best meal. No tea or coffee served, very disappointing."

Pros: "The more modern plane with USB ports that actually charge and the higher quality and bigger displays really help make the trip more enjoyable."
Cons: "Not as much to eat on this BA flight back to Philidelphia from Hethrow as there was on the American Airlines flight there."

Pros: "Polite and helpful crew and great entertainment systems."

Pros: "Service was great"

Cons: "Food wasn't very good"

Pros: "Nice company with good personnel."
Cons: "N\A"

Cons: "Hi -- the flight was fine. A bit of turbulence and rocky but it was raining so it's understandable. The crew was nice, professional. The plan was actually delayed 1.5 hours. They sent a text message at 7:15 apparently but my phone was not on so I understand not receiving it. I also left for the airport around 7:15. I also received an email from Kayak at 7 am that said there was no delay so I didn't check to see if there would be any others. I never received an email from Kayak about the delay. I would just suggest making sure all the alerts I get are correct. I also receieved an email to check in 72 hours before the flight but it wouldn't let me on Finnair.com Maybe I was supposed to go to Open Skies. Thanks! Melodie"

Cons: "Entertainment system is very old, but have a good selection."

Pros: "British Airways operated this flight and it was a great experience. The seats were cramped, but almost to be expected for an economy service overseas."

Pros: "British Airways has greatly improved their customer service, the flight attendants (usually a bit gruff) were instead very kind and helpful to myself and all the passengers I saw them interact with. It really makes the flight experience better."

Pros: "I got me where i needed to go. The food was okay."
Cons: "Lost luggage, poor seats, poor entertainment."
