Cons: "They left my bag off the plane. Ridiculous."
Cons: "Delays, took my hand luggage into the hold,"
Cons: "This return flight was much better than the flight going to Amsterdam. I believe the biggest factor was the type of aircraft. The old 747 just didn't meet expectations. The newer 777 on the way back was much more comfortable, with better amenities."
Pros: "Crew was nice and friendly"
Cons: "Airplane so uncomfortable. Food horrible. Not even available for one of us what we ask for on what was offered. Bad taste and not what can be on a that length of time flight."
Pros: "Comfortable seat, friendly crew. Crew were conscious of recycling which I like a lot as there is so much waste on flight. Anything we can do to reduce waste is very welcome."
Cons: "Food wasn't very appetizing, pasta didn't have much flavor and I don't eat red meat so the other choice wasn't an option for me."
Cons: "The check in desk was late opening & the carry on luggage size was smaller than advertised on their website, so it had to be put in the hold. Open on time to prevent less stress to travelers & give more accurate information about cabin luggage."
Pros: "great crew and comfortable flight."
Cons: "sceens in the plane to show map and direction of travel"
Pros: "The service"
Cons: "The food."
Pros: "Flight duration"
Cons: "Very stingy with the drinks Cramped seats"

Pros: "Was happy to pay extra 45.5 pounds for laugages which was hidden"
Cons: "Not happy to pay extra money for my case"
Cons: "Boarding was confusing and disorganized"
Pros: "Fairly nice flight. 7 hours AMS to JFK. They had ice cream cones for us mid flight and an after dinner cognac if you wished."
Cons: "Not a big fan of paying for a few extra inches of leg room in a better seat after paying for a ticket."
Pros: "The aircraft felt clean and quite spacious (decent legroom). Cabin crew was friendly and everything went as expected. Bonus points for the Beemster cheese sandwich (I was totally disappointed when they served the food, but more than pleasantly surprised by the quality of the cheese - I even bought some afterwards, from the Albert Heijn just outside the security area)."
Cons: "Very odd queue separation at boarding. Passengers were divided in 5 lanes, depending on their seating area withing the plane (for a more efficient boarding, I presume) but, by the time we all got to the actual aircraft, we formed another queue in the boarding bridge so it didn't feel like any time was saved or anything."
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."
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: "Lovely staff, good food, great movies."
Pros: "Very friendly and helpful personnel."
Cons: "Amesterdam airport employee was really rude"
Pros: "Boarding was a breeze and the staff were lovely. Online check was very simple and easy to navigate."

Pros: "The food was excelent"
Cons: "I have to pay to pay a little more confort"
Pros: "The flight was great."
Pros: "The supplied pack of toothpaste/toothbrush"
Pros: "The staff at the front desk for the check-in were extremely helpful. I had a complicated issue with my luggage and they helped me to sort it out in the best possible way. Amazing service! Furthermore, the entertainment on board is great! Nice movies, nice food, friendly flight attendants, etc. They even offered me a second sandwich =)! I truly loved my experience with KLM."
Pros: "Timing & efficiency. Good food though only a sandwich."
Cons: "Nothing. Could say there was no entertainment but I didn't want entertainment on such a short flight"
Cons: "Flight delayed by one hour which meant I missed by train at Southampton by 10 minutes and subsequent bus connect home. Next bus would have been 2 hours later so 45 minute walk home from train station. Didn't bother with food offering, put off by that supplied from Hannover to Schiphol."
Cons: "Terrible service in flight and customer service wise .. app functionality was below"
Cons: "One of the senior stewardesses we're very rude. Whether it's her personal opinion or KLM's policy, it's unreasonable to think that a 3 years old child could or should hold her pipi over 20 minutes, while they slowly and inefficiently trying to give out food. Several parents were there with the request to let us through to the toilet with small children and she smiled in our face and said "no, we will finish first and than you can go". She might be not fit for the job anymore, but KLM can't afford this kind of treatment."
Pros: "Quick (relatively) flight."
Cons: "Skinniest seat ever. Couldn't even lean back. I now have hunchback."
Pros: "Short layover connecting from US flight and luggage transferred ok to destination. Food option not great but at least they didn't charge for it unlike some other airlines. No entertainment but to be expected on such a short flight."
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: "Spacious cabins, friendly service"
Cons: "The crew on the Lagos Amsterdam route (in economy) are particularly unfriendly and brusque. This is my experience each time i fly this route in economy"
Pros: "Newer plane. Dimming windows, upgraded bathroom. Flight crew very pleasant."
Cons: "Boarding wasn't announced. Limited in flight movie selection. Food was average. Same dessert for both meals served."
Pros: "Crew was excellent explaining about the (short) delay."
Pros: "Crew very efficient Food was reasonably good Good movie selection"
Cons: "Boarding at AMS was very disorganized. No row boarding for economy, just all at once Lights stay on during the flight, so difficult to sleep"
Cons: "While dropping off my luggage, the staff confirmed that the booking made and paid for was indeed a emergency exit seat. Once on board the seat did was not an Emergency exit row."
Cons: "KLM sent us to Kiev thru Stambul (Turkey). We have spent 8 hours more on flights."
Pros: "Food was of a fairly high standard and so too was the entertainment. At least the Captain was honest in that he admitted KLM's baggage loading process was a mess and caused the delay."
Cons: "A baggage loading problem meant that all baggage needed to be offloaded and then re-loaded......this took 2 hours and then another 20 minute delay due to congestion with air traffic over France! Where were the cabin crew during the delay? They may have not been onboard given their lack of visibility during the delay. The only time they appeared was to distribute a cutlet of water and a packet of dry biscuits. Inflight, apart from the meal service routines, on this 13+ hour flight the crew were notable for not being visible."
Pros: "The food was surprising good, especially the Japanese meal. The flight attendants were pleasant. Long flight but at least the entertainment choices for movies were good. I'm happy the provided snacks in the galley and walked around cabins offering water and drinks often."
Cons: "The plane was a bit dated without electrical outlets and a dated entertainment system. The earphones seemed cheap"
Cons: "Main meal was mediocre, other food better"
Pros: "Comfortable seats and good food/service throughout the trip."
Pros: "Airlines have no respect for customers anymore, planes are big buses with uncomfortable seating and little more. They nickel and dime you and punish you when you don't want to leave your salary with them."
Cons: "Get rid of the caste system you have imposed and all the fees you want to charge for everything. More room for real people, not seating for leprechauns. Better boarding procedures. Pretty much everything could be better but they have no interest in making it better just charg as much as they can."
Cons: "Try to be on time!"
Cons: "Will Never fly amercan air line"
Pros: "Seat was good"
Cons: "Being able to upgrade to business or first from app"
Cons: "The on-boarding in Barcelona was a little odd. Instead of calling boarding by groups or zones it was a free for all. That could have been better organized"
Cons: "Most everything could have been better. All phases were far below average."
Pros: "The rest was as usual"
Pros: "The service provided was excellent. The food was as good as airline food goes. The entertainment options were excellent."
Cons: "Coach seats are a very cramped!"
Cons: "Even on a big ole B777 you better upgrade to bigger seats"
Pros: "Niçoise salad was great. Had plenty of room in priority with pillow/blanket/headphones etc provided"
Pros: "Loved the BRAND NEW airplane!!"
Cons: "Food is so fatty. this is 2018, we should be having healthier choices."
Pros: "AA got me home safe."
Cons: "Entertainment was nonexistant. Most movies were unavailable and those that were would start and then say “no longer available” monitor did not work. I was not the only passenger with issues. Many could not get system to work. Antiquated and/or poorly maintained. Also, announcement made it seem as if you had to pay for wine/beer/spirits. I wasn’t drinking so it didnt matter but at other times this would have been a hassle. Never had this on an international flight. Flight was okay just not top drawer like it used to be. Cost cutting measures have impacted the brand. Would not say it is first tier. Dont mind a “no frills” flight if it results in lower cost to consumer (aka Southwest Airlines)"
Pros: "Every thing was find.."
Cons: "Seats harder than expected.."
Cons: "Poor service by air hostess in the flight. Didn’t give the right food. Ignored when I asked for orange juice."
Pros: "The comfort..the movies."
Cons: "No outlets. Poor options for vegetarians"
Cons: "Flight out to BCN was one of the worst in my life! Never had an agent (BA Denver) talk to you and then mid conversation say they closed 3 minutes ago (7 minutes in to trying to find a flight alternative for their cancelled flight...and I wasn’t being upset!)"
Pros: "Food & inflight entertaiment decent."
Cons: "Gate agent claiming carry on bag ro large. Used it 30+ as a carryon with our difficulty. It is 14”x22”. If the concern was too many bages dont bs pasengers about reason they are asked to to check bag."
Cons: "All the different prices for seats. I think it is a stupid system. Miss the good old days of air travel."
Pros: "That it got me home"
Cons: "With one exception, personnel very unfriendly."
Pros: "everything was on par to most travels until we got to miami."
Cons: "they lost a container of bags for over 2 hours!! i was supposed to have a 6-hour layover (i had 2 separate tickets) and had a spa appt at the ritz i had to cancel and pay for because you couldn't locate a container of bags for 2-hours. i feel bad for people with a connecting flight who didn't get home with their luggage. ruined the homecoming."
Pros: "The pasta offered at lunch was tasty."
Cons: "The snack which was described as pizza had a really bad taste and this offering should be discontinued and something that tastes better should be offered."
Pros: "service was good"
Cons: "seating was uncomfortible"
Pros: "The food was great! The entertainment was great! I had enough space!"
Pros: "Newest aircraft, great customer service"
Cons: "The food"
Pros: "Nice Jet."
Cons: "During boarding, we were pulled out of the line. The attendant that diverted us did not explain why he diverted us. Our boarding passes were printed by our hotel as were many others that we saw. We went to a desk where another individual started asking question about our life and where we were going. Still, no one thought it was necessary to explain what part of the process or what exactly is going on. The man that diverted us, I'll bet, does not have reasons or any idea why he diverted us. I hate to think that he did it because we were Black Americans."
Cons: "They would not let me board for being less than 5 minutes late."
Pros: "Flight attendants were great. Also rearranging our seats so that we could sit next to our 2 year old daughter was very helpful."
Pros: "At least the entertainment was good while I waited for my food."
Cons: "I asked for a chicken option meal and the flight attendant was at the end of my area of sitting (the front half) and left to the back and said he would return. I waited and waited and nothing while everyone ate. I ran the flight attendant button(many many many times) and no one came. I didn't get up because why am I going to chase someone down? After about 30 mins or more later someone finally passed by that was going to ask for trash. I asked for my food and they apologized and brought back a pasta option and said they were sorry that they ran out of chicken. So I was made to wait for half an hour while everyone ate to NOT get what I wanted and be forgotten about?! Unacceptable. Took me another 30 mins to get my appetite back since I was so upset. Also, our flight left an hour later!!! No one said anything to us about why we were late. They accommodated those with connecting flights in the US but still. What is going on?"
Pros: "Nice flight attendants!!"
Cons: "We boarded an hour late with no explanation then left even later because we were so far back on the run way. Also the last checking me in was not the kindest! Nor was the man who scanned my ticket to go on the plane."
Pros: "Upgraded to business class and it was wonderful"
Cons: "I have no complaints"
Pros: "The flight itself was smooth."
Cons: "Our first flight had an hour and a half delay. Missed our connecting flight. Had to wait two hours for a later flight that was then delayed another hour and a half. Absolutely horrific and inconvenient."
Pros: "Employees were friendly and helpful"
Cons: "I think every CEO of a company should be forced to eat their food. It was horrible. A fresh sandwich would be so much better (with add your own may/mustard) The air freshener from the bathroom was so strong that I was nauseous the whole flight. We were at least 8-10 rows away from the restroom. It sprayed about every 20 minutes. My tv screen didn't work. Made it a long flight. No one else around me had that problem"
Pros: "For the price I got my ticket for. This was a good deal. I paid extra to upgrade to main cabin extra but well worth it."
Cons: "Got food and drinks and beer at nomadditional cost"
Pros: "We flew directly from Madrid to Miami with IBERIA"
Cons: "Food is horrible Change seats without notice"
Pros: "Loved the comfort of the plane. There was generous seat space especially when reclined in the main cabin. Personal entertainment screens with abundance of options to choose. Flight crew was very pleasant and helpful. T"
Cons: "The flight was over an hour delayed in boarding and departure without any reasoning."
Pros: "Business class comfort was a huge difference! The seat, space entertainment was great."
Cons: "Food not great. Priority line not separate for boarding. If you don't board right away when first called, you get stuck behind everyone else boarding. Those that have higher boarding numbers stand around blocking the line and no announcement ever made to remain away from line."
Cons: "Could not understand the boarding instructions-PA system and speaker not good"
Cons: "Only a few options as far as tv and movies"
Pros: "The flight got me to my destination."
Cons: "Unprofessional flight attendants, who bickered at each other AND at passengers. flight was late took forever for bags to hit the carousel terrible food"
