Airline reviews

Pros: "Amazing !"
Cons: "Nothing all good really"

Cons: "Information on when we can check in on upcoming flights. Other airlines we have booked for flights will email us 24 hours prior to departure. Virgin Atlantic did not. I had to call and I was directed to their web site and was able to check in on line. Thanks"

Pros: "The staff were helpful. The entertainment had good variety. Adjustable head rest was useful."
Cons: "The seat was a little lumpy. More leg room would always be appreciated."

Cons: "Food"

Cons: "Very cramped aisle seat and I kept being knocked by passing crewe including knocking over a cup of water."

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

Cons: "There was a medical issue and Virgin Atlantic refused to accept the ticket code - for any price - toward a new ticket. I paid for a new ticket and took another airline."

Cons: "My tv screen could not show the movies"

Pros: "Comfy, nice crew, attentive."
Cons: "Nowt"

Cons: "The food is not very good at all. One mediocre meal served soon after take-off, then for the rest of the flight tasteless, cardboard pasties and wraps."

Pros: "I had one of the few empty seats next to me."
Cons: "The food is awful. Not enough toilets."

Cons: "My bag was damaged in transit"

Pros: "Provides the service you'd expect from an international carrier. Boarded on time, seat actually reclines, meals, baggage, seat assignments are included in the price. Staff treat you well and the price isn't bad."
Cons: "Virgin website is slow and not intuitive. Couldn't get seat assignment until i was at the gate. No explanation why. Boarding announcements delivered via ESP. Half of the passengers were still in the boarding area because no one heard announcements. Arrived 30 min early but had to wait on the tarmac for 45 min for a parking gate. Baggage delivery at JFK took forever."

Pros: "Everything except the food"
Cons: "The food is atrocious. Even if I have to pay to upgrade my meal, I would..."

Cons: "Missed connection to SFO"

Cons: "Queue at boarding gate for upper class ticket holders Bus transfer to plane - Virgin is not a LoCo airline! Upper Class Service was slow - understaffed?"

Pros: "We paid extra for exit row seats so we had good leg space"
Cons: "The seats are so small that only your backside fits on it and we are not big people. There is no support for the thigh and I had severe cramps after leaving the aircraft. The flight to LA with Virgin Australia was far more comfortable."

Pros: "The cabin crew were excellent!"
Cons: "I paid extra for Economy Delight seats for me and my wife. Shortly after take-off, our calm and comfortable more or less empty section of the aircraft was colonised by an extended family of Orthodox Jews in a kind of airborne West Bank situation. They weren’t in our section of the cabin at all to start with, and I don’t know why they were apparently able to get a free upgrade that I had to pay £100 for. We went from being in an almost empty cabin to being basically sat in the middle of an Orthodox Jewish kindergarten. It was awful! They were noisy, messy, were constantly getting in and out of their seats, the back of my seat kept getting kicked, and there was even a baby crawling around the aisle. We were surrounded. I have no idea whether this is characteristic of Orthodox Jewish family life, or just a completely inconsiderate family. They didn’t exactly ruin my flight, but they didn’t make it enjoyable either. I asked to be moved. The cabin crew were great and acknowledged the difficulty of the situation. My wife lost her window seat but at least we still had the legroom and peace and quiet."

Pros: "Crew very friendly"
Cons: "Seats and legroom poor if you’re six feet tall"

Pros: "Friendly cabin crew, excellent food and drinks. Very happy with the service we received"

Pros: "Checking in at the counter even I wasn't allocated a seat but the gentleman was very humble and polite."
Cons: "The fact that I was told I would be given a seat at the boarding gate. I got to the airport very early to get a good seat only to be that and was given a very uncomfortable seat where I couldn't stretch my legs well because of a box on the floor situated to my left leg and to make the matter even more annoying my screen was not working which I was forced to take one heavy meant-so-called laptop. And finally cabin crew were lacking serious customer service and when u ask for something they were just so reluctant to deliver as if we were given a free ticket or something. May it be noted that my ticket was not that cheap to be treated in such manner."

Pros: "Cool flight, mainly because it was empty. Good food"
Cons: "Seats weren't that comfortable. Entertainment sucked because the screen functions were terrible, very difficult"

Cons: "Too much food - not enough time to sleep in comfort!"

Pros: "Quite a big choice of movies and TV shows to watch, more than enough for an eight hour flight. Normal headphone plugs so you can use your own."
Cons: "I booked together with my wife, yet we were allocated seats apart and were not able to be reassigned together. The leg room was so tight that I could not pick up things off the floor without putting my head in the next persons lap. Though the cabin crew were smiley and friendly, it was hard to get their attention when needed. The PA system is much louder than the entertainment, so announcements were ear bursting. The dinner selections ran out early, so a good proportion did not get their choice."

Cons: "Food was terrible"

Pros: "We really enjoyed flying with Virgin and so made sure we booked into a Virgin flight for this trip and not delta. The food was good, entertainment good when it worked."
Cons: "We got told that our flight number had changed from VS103 to VS4049 but still a Virgin flight. Only when we checked in we found out we were now flying with Delta and number was now DL285. Was not happy as wanted to fly with Virgin.The seats were ok but the entertainment system went down mid film. Took an hour to get started again. The games didn't work. Staff were a bit grumpy."

Cons: "We were told over the phone that we could bring our kayaks with us to Africa but the airport staff denied not only our kayaks, but also our paddles which were in a standard ski bag. Their excuse was that both the kayaks and paddle bags were 2 inches too long. .. TWO INCHES!!!!!! We had record of the person we talked to and the time and date, but none of that seemed to matter. It caused A HUGE INCONVENIENCE for us since we are in Zambia for 6 weeks without our gear to paddle one of the most challenging rivers in the world... the Zambezi. Now we are constantly trying to acquire the proper equipment with very little success. We run a nonprofit called the Montana Kayak Academy which provides free whitewater instruction to youth between 8 &18 yrs old and we will be sure to tell everyone we know to NOT TRAVEL WITH EITHER VIRGIN ATLANTIC OR BRITISH AIRWAYS.... EVER!!! VERY DISAPPOINTED! !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"

Pros: "Cabin crew were friendly and attentive. Flight was on time and we got to Atlanta early"
Cons: "Could do with more legroom. Food not the greatest"

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

Pros: "I had a great experience from start to end of my trip. Most of the staff were pleasant and professional. Food wasn't okay and red wine on flight from Heathrow was delicious."
Cons: "The red wine on the flight from Lagos was too sharp. That is the regular one served on virgin flight so was glad when I tasted the new one served on the flight from Heathrow, thinking it's been changed!"

Pros: "NA"

Pros: "the crew were the friendliest I've flown with (Irish & British)... the lighting was very relaxing and the continuous snack service was much appreciated (especially ice cream).. gonna try premium economy next time as the seats looked even better..."
Cons: "Vera the entertainment screen was very good but there were no newly released movies, everything seemed to be a couple of months old... the leather headrest was comfortable but kept slipping down to behind my neck, would be nice if it was lockable in position.."

Pros: "Everything went very fast and smooth. I didn't have to queue for the boarding. The Sita were very comfortable, the crew very friendly and halepful and the selection of the movies A+."

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

Pros: "I liked everything, which is very uncharacteristic :)) At least compared to the big American carriers or the national European ones, VA is a gen - esthetically for sure. Clean, comfy, stylish! Will be my choice from now on."

Pros: "1st class, what's not to like?"

Pros: "Food was great, plenty of it also"

Cons: "The seat I had was a bit snug leg wise and recline wise. Could not get comfortable at all."

Cons: "I did not get the requested meal. I had requested Asian Veg meal. I had reconfirmed that Virgin Atlantic Kiosk at Heathrow airport as well. In flight when I asked cabin crew they said they didn't get any request. I was hungry whole flight. Very bad experience."

Cons: "cabin was nice but cold"

Pros: "Not much not to like about this experience except for cramped seating in coach."

Pros: "The plane was very nice with great lighting. More food would have been nice as it was a long flight The crew were variable - most very helpful but one or two not so much"
Cons: "Not enough food for everyone and no snacks between meals, which was very bad considering it was a 10 hour flight Entertainment was great, seats were OK (certainly had worse)"

Pros: "As expected, great customer service from Virgin. Great Vera system. Friendly and welcoming experience."
Cons: "The seats!!!! Omg I got bed sores. Not really but they have got to be the most uncomfortable things I have ever sat in. For a European flight from Uk they'd be fine. But for 9 hours...not good. The short hop down from ATL to MCO after was a blessed relief. Virgin, you have got to think a little more about your passengers asses. Also, having flown with just about every major transatlantic operator, including previous trips with Virgin, the knee room was not good. If you stretched out under the seat in front you were ok but draw your knees up... I wore short trousers for comfort and have sore points on my knees where they rubbed against the material of the chair in front."

Cons: "Cold draft at all times."

Pros: "Flight was on time .. Friendly crew. Good entertainment system"

Cons: "Lost my both bags in transit. Also, did not get wheelchair services at Paris and had to walk everywhere with bad legs. Not good."

Cons: "Cramped"

Pros: "The plane was very clean! We loaded in the center which made everything go quicker. I was one of the last on board and there was ample overhead storage. Complimentary snacks were were substantial and service was constant. I hate going to the bathroom on the plane and it was so roomy for airplane bathrooms. The pilot was hilarious!"

We have never encountered any airlines would rob costomers like this! Will NEVER ever fly Turkish airline again!"

Pros: "Food, clean plane, Nice staff"

Cons: "The crew isn’t very friendly, they do not know English very much."

Pros: "There is simply nothing to like. Whilst other airlines give peoooe a nice hotel room to spend the night on their trunk flights, Turkish airlines offers."
Cons: "I didn’t like anything not least the fact you make people wait in the station when they are on flights with stops. It Morocco offers a plush hotel room. I’m never travelling"

Pros: "I loved the amount of attention and consoling that was given to an ailing elderly woman on my flight to Turkey! On my flight to Ghana the attendants were so gentle and provided a lot of ammenities. Oh and the hotel was an amazing experience and respite especially after the run-around at the airport. Thank you"
Cons: "I did not enjoy the run-around I was given in trying to find the hotel desk. “50 meters then turn left” was the anthem. All someone had to say was go outside the airport and you’ll find the hotel desk! Hehe thank you Turkish Airlines however! Thank you."

Cons: "I could not use my ticket I was trying to extension date but customer services terrible"

Pros: "Arriving safely"
Cons: "Seats horrible, food not eatable, poor service"

Cons: "I had my flight from London to Istanbul delayed and because I had connection flight in Istanbul to Russia they had to change my flight for the next day . That ruined my whole holidays and I had to go all the way home from Gatwick airport and next morning going again to Heathrow airport. No transfer or taxi was provided and No single apology from the staff or company . Very disappointed with Turkish airlines !"

Pros: "The comfort of the seats, entertainment, & food were great as always. The only Turkish Airlines flight I had during this trip that was not delayed, however needed to be due to the previous flight. The crew did hold the flight for all of us from the delayed flight from Athens."
Cons: "An elderly woman was booked in a window seat and she insisted she take my aisle seat without any additional available aisle seats. However, this would be better handled when she requested for assistance during her booking process. The crew should've anticipate her needs and booked an aisle seat, or even be the ones to ask me or another passenger if I would be willing to trade. I was placed on the spot and no courtesy was shown to me. My legs were completely swollen and in pain because I wasn't able to stand periodically. I too booked my flight early and requested my seats appropriately for my health needs."

Pros: "Many movies to watch. There are news channels like CNN to keep you updated with what las happening in the world."
Cons: "We had a connection at Istanbul. No laptop or notebook was allowed. A small portable charger to my iPhone was confisticated even thought it is smaller than my iPhone. Turkish TSA seemed a little confused with what to confisticate. They almost took away my portable shaver too. There were 4 little kids running around aisle during the flight forcing me to watch movies instead of sleep crossing the Atlantic Ocean."

Pros: "Nobody wants to sit on a plane for 10-14 hours but Turkish airlines made it enjoyable! Excellent customer service. We had plenty of beverages, sleeping kits, a wide range of entertainment on the screens, and they had my vegetarian meals ready. Always friendly and helpful."
Cons: "If there was about a foot more legroom, that would be awesome! But I would probably have to pay for first-class to achieve that. ;-)"

Pros: "Service and people."
Cons: "Long lines...far away gates...and double security check with pat down...besides having electronic items taken away and a separate line to pick that up and separate line to pick up our baggage in Miami"

Cons: "poor to non existence service in economy class. all crew up front with zero crew In back."

Pros: "food, large touch screen..."

Pros: "No real issues, we were served a decent meal, plane was new and the crew were friendly."
Cons: "Flight was severely delayed, not due to any fault of the airline but we were left sitting on board for 90 minutes with very little information m."

Pros: "The food was the best I've had on an airplane and the in flight entertainment had an enormous selection. Flight staff and their service were amazing. I've flown all over and have never taken Turkish Airlines before. Now I don't want to fly with anyone else."
Cons: "seats were a little cramped for a 12hr flight, but I'm not a short guy. I guess it pays to go business class."

Cons: "I have bought two sides ticket from Turkish Airlines. And i miss my first flight, when i came to airport for return flight Turkish Airlines cancel my return flight whitout update by email or massage by phon!!"

Pros: "I ve travelled many times on Qatar ,Emirates,and jordanian air lines but the Turkish was the poorest and the worst .A limited choices and little food ,and these people on the airplane donot do their jobs properly .I hope it will be better next time if there is a next time ."

Pros: "The entertainment choice and availability of USB port for charging was excellent."
Cons: "This leg of both of our flights (going and return) was quite cramped. Due to an unfortunate delay on our return flight, our overall day was extended from ~8 hours to 16 hours, and had us flying through the night--very unexpected and tiring. Additionally, although we requested kosher meals well in advance, the delay/cancellation of our flights and rebooking effectively cancelled our kosher meals and there was nothing for us to eat. This was very frustrating."

Pros: "For a short flight, it was good. The seats were a bit bigger, and the crew was nicer. The food was ok."
Cons: "Again some attitude from flight attendants. The food is average but again subpar compared to previous flights with Turkish Airlines."

Pros: "Other than the late departure, everything else was excellent."
Cons: "Just the fact that we were some 40 minutes late, and this created panic among those passengers who had tight connections to Tehran, Tel-Aviv and Tbilisi. The rest was excellent!"

Pros: "Best entertainment system I have seen on a flight, bar none. Appreciated the USB port for charging"
Cons: "Transatlantic flight had smallest seat I have seen on a long-haul (fine on the shorter leg)."

Pros: "surpassed our expectation"

Pros: "great company."

Pros: "flight was exactly as scheduled, flight attendance were extremly helpful and polite, food was good."
Cons: "nothing"

Pros: "The space was incredible had enough leg room, the food was delicious, the amenities like the movies and music and games made the flight feel a lot quicker loved this air line!!!!"
Cons: "The bathroom needed a little more maitence that's all!!"

Cons: "They made me pay $450 to check two of my bags. The bags were delayed by a day and then they stole a $1,000 camera from the delayed bag. I work for a travel agency and we will never fly Turkish Air again."

Pros: "Clean, orginzed, professional pilots"
Cons: "Too hot, few meal options"

Pros: "Food was fantastic. There were no delays. Very enjoyable."

Pros: "The crew were very polite, professional, and accomodating. The food was tasty even for airplane food. I was pleasantly surprised! There were tons of entertainement options to help pass the time."

Pros: "Great service onboard."
Cons: "Attendants did not smile, but were helpful."

Cons: "Considering that we’re in the middle of a pandemic no LH ground staff at Heathrow Airport was leading by example wearing protective equipment such as mask or gloves. Further, I found it inexplicably that almost every seat was taken on this flight. If LH knows that the flight is booked close to capacity I would have expected they do their part and due diligence by swapping to a bigger aircraft to help protect people and their customers, it’s not that they wouldn’t have other aircrafts grounded and ready to go... A reduced beverage service is all you can do, really? LH - very disappointing once again"

Pros: "quality of plane"
Cons: "check in takes 30 minutes since my visa was in old passport"

Pros: "Didn’t like anything. Mediocre all round."
Cons: "Disembarkation took 40 mins due to which most passengers struggled to catch connecting flights. Very poor service by Lufthansa to help delayed passengers."

Pros: "Everything other than luggage situation"
Cons: "Luggage left in London and had to pay for baggage when Momondo said luggage was included"

Pros: "Quick, comfortable and easy"
Cons: "Boarding was a bit clunky"

Pros: "Nothing!"

Pros: "Boarding was quick and good"

Pros: "Seat and crew were amazing but obviously struggled to be proud and confident of their job, can’t blame them if the company cuts expenses all over."
Cons: "When you fly business class, you expect a different product than economy, because you pay almost double the price. All we got is the same lousy sandwich as in economy, neither are alcoholic or hot beverages available due to ‘shortage of staff’ as the crew announces. A flight far behind LH standards."

Cons: "On tome flight"

Pros: "Nothing at all, whole experience was incredibly stressful"
Cons: "The transfer was awful. Long line for the frankly bizarre security check despite never leaving the terminal, incredibly rude staff at Frankfurt airport, all wearing may we help badges, so kind of answered their own question. Check in staff once we had sprinted th length of the terminal very rude"

Pros: "Crew very helpful."
Cons: "Both flights late. Food was worthy rather than tasty. Seats small. Too much plastic - why not use non plastic cups. Sexist safety card."

Pros: "Good"
Cons: "More varieties of whisky on board"

Pros: "Lufthansa hands down is the best airline I have ever flown!"

Cons: "The entertainment system broke down completely on the whole plane and the crew was sort of grumpy."

Cons: "Boarding by rows would avoid people rushing to line up ahead of time."

Pros: "on time."
Cons: "nothing"

Cons: "a bit late"

Pros: "Despite the short flight we were still given food and as always I love airline food. Free alcohol is always a bonus as well! Nice crew and timely take offs and landings. Could bring two hand luggage (backpack and suitcase) which I like even though I didn't have to pay extra!"
Cons: "No negatives."

Pros: "Very explanatory clear and responsive. There was a short delay they kept us informed clearly and responsibly. Excellent flight and superb performance. Very polite and helpful."

Cons: "Flight from Heathrow to Frankfurt delayed, when we arrived we had no chance of making our connecting flight to Split yet no one told us. No one at the gate which didn’t say final call (or on any of the boards) or anyone calling us over the tannoy at any point. Super rude “flight manager” A. Turini burst out laughing when we told him our situation and when I asked why he said “Well would it make you happier if I cry instead?” So unprofessional."

Pros: "The ground staff in Heathrow was helpful. They happily swapped me onto an earlier flight to Munich after I spotted delays out of Munich, allowing me ample time to connect in Munich airport"
Cons: "Lufthansa's narrowbodies have one of the most uncomfortable seats in the sky. These slimline seats are built with a central beam running vertically along the midline of the seat, making it very uncomfortable with your spine."

Pros: "Crew and service was amazing"
Cons: "No entertainment food Horrible"

Cons: "Online check-in did not work. When I checked in at the airport, I received only a middle seat."

Pros: "I like everything about Lufthansa in terms of quality and service"
Cons: "Punctuality. I fly lufthansa twice a week and I have yet to fly on time. There are always a delay."

Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Almost everything"

Cons: "Cancelled flight and transferring me on turkish airlines again the flight was delayed over three hours.,obviously we have missed our connection flight to Beirut and now waiting in front the hotel desk because the first flight to Beirut is 12:25 pm , I have lost 2 days from my holiday,I'm very tired and upset, I will never use kayak ever again and I will tell all my friends and family to avoid it."

Cons: "The flight was delayed . When we arrived in Frankfurt, there was a quie of 200m . After waiting 10 minutes, they asked us to go to other passport control . We had to walk onother 10 minutes to get there ."

Cons: "Not entertainment at all"

Pros: "Made up most of the time. Latrobe leaving due to queue."
Cons: "That I did not know in advance there was a snack. Would have odered vegan as it was had nothing."

Cons: "At the gates they said that nobody could bring more than one piece of carry-on items Dash completely catching Everyone by surprise. They took a backpack from me, and it has now been lost."

Cons: "It took ages to go through the security check, although I have mentioned that I have a flight connection that is due to leave nobody gave a s..t, so I missed my flight. Now I’m waiting at the airport"

Pros: "The environment was very nice. Relaxed and roomy"

Pros: "The counter staff in Heathrow was great"

Pros: "The crew were very helpful and friendly"

Cons: "Very very long walk plus train to baggage reclaim at Munich"

Pros: "Everything was perfect ... pilots are so good and professional..!!)"

Cons: "Poor food on first leg. Sat by a man who was allowed to have 7 cans of beer. On second leg of journey I was willing to pay for food. The best choice for anyone trying to eat a healthy diet was pot noodles. Air Canada get 2 stars. Return journey on United gets 4stars."

Pros: "It’s nice that Lufthansa still gives food onboard"

Pros: "Easy check-in and helpful staff. I would absolutely fly with Lufthansa again"

Pros: "Nie odbyl size powodu opuznienia samolotu z Chicago do Londynu"

Pros: "ON TIME."

Cons: "Approx. 1 hour delay, which was not the airline's fault (construction on runways)"

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.

And yes, we checked in together. There were lots of confusing messages"

Pros: "Decent meal (warm Pasta all'arrabbiata), nice little muffin for dessert and standard drinks (coffee & tea were a bonus, as they didn't serve any on a similar flight, from Barcelona to Amsterdam), friendly cabin crew."
Cons: "Poor timing - no reason for a 40 minute delay at take off (plane was fully boarded in time) Old aircraft, shabby, dirty and cramped seats. Coming from my connecting flight from Barcelona, I could clearly tell the different in the quality (and cleanliness) of the aircrafts."

Pros: "In flight food was enjoyable"

Pros: "I was pleasantly surprised they had a snack service on such a short flight. The flight attendants were very friendly"
Cons: "Amsterdam customs is the most disorganized I have ever seen. With the number of tourists entering the country you would think they would have done something about it.

Cons: "The bags where damaged from the staff"

Cons: "KLM had bumped us to a later flight for no reason and again we had to call with a long wait to get our original connection restored, However, we did not get boarding passes during checking in Europe and thus had to go outside security in Detroit to the main check-in gate and wait 30 minutes to get the error resolved. Then it was back thorough security and a rush to the gate to get there in time to board. Lost our original seat assignment and wound up in the last row at the tail of the plane. Extremely poor coordination between KLM and Delta who operated the flight."
