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

Pros: "Courteous and attentive crew from baggage check in thru baggage claim."

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: "Premium economy was perfect, smaller cabin with less people, great flight."

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."

Pros: "Crew was attentive."
Cons: "Tiny, uncomfortable seats with warn cushions."

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

Pros: "The flight was so delayed I missed my connecting flight to jfk."
Cons: "The flight was so delayed I missed my connecting flight to jfk."

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"

Pros: "Good collection of movies"
Cons: "To pay for luggage for international flights while on their website it says i dont have to pay if im going to South Africa. The food was not so great."

Pros: "Service, pilot updates, and seating were all great!"

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: "Friendly staff, so much food/snacks were offered. Good movies available."
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Service, meals, friendly and attentive FAs"

Pros: "The crew were friendly."
Cons: "The food was okay. There were more tasty options traveling to Heathrow versus from Heathrow to the NYC. The boarding process was a mess. We had to wait in an enormous line and then take a bus to the flight."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Arrived 1:10 min begore departure. Customer service reps quoted me with No Show. When asked they have no courtesy to answer. Both the rep over the phone and the rep at the airport were horrible. Did I say I was traveling business class? You could imagine the economy"

Pros: "Legroom, lovely staff and all round good flight"

Cons: "Older media entertainment screen with hard to use touch interface."

Pros: "Staff were excellent and very friendly, service was great, and the entertainment on board was very good."
Cons: "We were waiting in our seats for about an hour before take off due to a need to de-ice the plane due to snowy weather. I think everyone would have been more comfortable in the waiting area while this happened, or at least given the option to do so."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "I had to run for almost 2 miles every time I had to change the flight. On the way to India they lost my one bag, and on the way back to US they lost my both begs."

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: "Choice of movies was good, but told the flight over was better. I flew another airline. Had no issue checking one bag in for free, but I think that is standard on an international flight."
Cons: "Entertainment systems take up foot/bag space underneath the seats. Was not able to get more than one glass of wine, even though I missed the first beverage service, that is my fault though, but I don't recall it being an issue getting a drink between services. Entertainment systems had contrast issues and it seemed like a lot of people 8 - 10 had issues since they were using iPads instead of the built in monitors. A lot of wear showing on the entertainment systems remotes."

Cons: "the child got the same food as us due i did not make clear i need a child food, now i am asking : is not clear that in that seat is a child of 4 years old ?"

Pros: "Efficient service"
Cons: "Entertainment screens were of poor quality"

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)"

Cons: "Seats need more padding"

Pros: "Staff was friendly and welcoming."
Cons: "There was nothing not to like."

Pros: "Easy check in and boarding."
Cons: "Uncomfortable seats and poor food."

Pros: "Seat Legroom Comfort Food Service Crew ... amazing!!!"
Cons: "Price?"

Cons: "the seats are not as comfortable as those on new planes"

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: "Food and beverage choices excellent"

Cons: "I found the seats on this Virgin Atlantic A340 flight from LHR (London Heathrow) to LAX (Los Angeles), an eleven hour flight, to be unacceptable. The seats were very crowded. I am six feet tall, and was very uncomfortable all during the flight. I could not sit with my knees together. I had to spread my knees to sit comfortably. Holding that position for eleven hours was very uncomfortable. Anyone taller than me would have even more trouble. Also, every seat has a very large box underneath, I presume for the audio/video system. This is a terrible location. There is very little room to stow anything. But much worse, I couldn't straighten my right leg. All-in-all, I found the seat situation totally unacceptable. I will likely never fly Virgin Atlantic again because of this."

Pros: "Great food/service/options, nice crew, on-time/early"
Cons: "Entertainment system is quite aged, but selections were OK"

Cons: "Very uncomfortable seats, food was bad"

Pros: "The crew was very good with the passengers and attentive"
Cons: "The leg space is very tight, it was very hard to sit specially for longer flights it's not that comfortable"

Pros: "free wine, good food, and friendly cabin crew? what more could you want? oh, a good variety of entertainment. I watched two documentaries and "The Lobster" a great choice, never would have seen it otherwise."
Cons: "The seat cushions are really hard and not very comfortable to sit on for a long flight. If you could get a higher density foam that would be great. my bum was a bit sore/uncomfortable."

Pros: "Great service, comfortable and punctual"

Cons: "45 minute delay on runway after landing was very very frustrating."

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: "Staff were friendly and flight was clean. Lots of movies to watch."
Cons: "The seats gets smaller each year. For a seven hour flight, the seats are very uncomfortable, no space to move. The flight with the hand held remote control TV had poor visual quality. It was hard to watch movies with dark background."

Pros: "Friendly service. Safe, on time flight."
Cons: "Chicken lunch was just so-so."

Pros: "Good was decent."
Cons: "This VS25 flight, whatever airplane it was felt old and the v poorly designed "seat back pocket" sat so low and protruded out so much that it pushed against your knees. V uncomfortable."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "The food I had food poisoning"

Pros: "Extremely uncomfortable seats in the Economy section and a very confusing remote control to maneuver the entertainment screen. The crew was excellent so it's not their fault. The food was passable but those white bread rolls got to go. My luggage didn't arrive so let's hope they bring it today."

Pros: "Everything was great though navigating through the inflight entertainment could have been easier..."

Pros: "Flight D001 (Delta / Virgin, LHR to JFK) Staff were terrific. The food was the best I've had so far (and I fly a lot!) The choice of entertainment was varied and excellent. Flight was smooth and captain was very communicative."
Cons: "Chair kept snapping back to position from recline (33E). Man behind me kept banging on the screen behind my head Inspite of announcement not to do do from cabin crew. If they could catch ppl doing that and say something that would be great :-) (although I realize if course the this isn't their fault.)"

Pros: "Extremely helpful and attentive. The crew volunteered to be on this flight from Madrid in the middle of the Covid pandemic"
Cons: "Best flight I’ve ever had. Need to have this many people on the plane every time"

Pros: "Economy size seats fitted in Business Class and so much wastage of space around seats, very little quantity and quality of food available.The flights to Delhi and Amritsar has more than 60 % Punjab Travelers and there is not even a single movie in Punjabi movie. Poor."
Cons: "Economy size seats fitted in Business Class and so much wastage of space around seats, very little quantity and quality of food available.The flights to Delhi and Amritsar has more than 60 % Punjab Travelers and there is not even a single movie in Punjabi language. Poor."

Pros: "In JFK the Finnair staff helped us expedite our connection process (the flight from Helsinki was delayed and we hardly had time to make the connection)."
Cons: "The flight was delayed by almost 4 hours. It was a miracle we made our connection in JFK."

Pros: "The flight was on time, crew worked really well. The food was okey as usual on Finnair."

Pros: "Well this was a first for me. The flight was overbooked and some one wanted to go to New York. Finn Air asked me if I would give up my seat they would get me on the next Finn Air flight to Chicago. I did and they even up graded me to business class on the next flight. It was the best flight experience of my life. Great food, hosts, and service. It was very comfortable the entire way."

Cons: "Something that was unpleasant was if someone spoke through the announcement system it would be very loud through the headphones if someone is listening to a movie or music"

Pros: "Plane was on time Checked luggage arrived I slept for the duration of the trip which made the 5 hour flight OK."
Cons: "Legroom and seating in general is cramped. But unfortunately that is the case in today's travel experience with US carriers."

Pros: "Food was provided when the flight was delayed for 2 1/2 hours. I also really liked the text update from kayak about the delay. The airline did not keep me updated but kayak did."
Cons: "The delay when it was already a 6 hour flight. I also was not able to reserve a seat because I had booked through kayak and not with the airline. Finally of the most irritating of all annoyance was that there was no movie. This was an international flight and there was no entertainment. I will never fly American Airlines again."

Pros: "This is not my first experience with Finnair flight and I'm very pleased with a consistency of a good service, high professionalism and I will recommend this airline to all my friends."

Pros: "The meeting I was attending in NY got postponed so I lost the full 1/2 return ticket. Nothing I could do, all at once all kinds of small text appear in big and over 400 $ was lost. This is the last time I book with Kayak. Better pay a bit more directly with the airline but do not have a deal like the Kayak deal. So please remove from all your sites. Thank you VV"

Pros: "I thought the BA/American/Finnair flight was excellent. The food was delicious both ways, much superior to United, American or Continental which I often fly. Excellent food, legroom, inflight entertainment (going out my row of seats - well, nobody could get any entertainment access) all was very good. Loved the newspaper choice when leaving Gatwick. I would definitely recommend again."

Pros: "Traveled BA and it was lovely, as usual."
Cons: "The flight staff on this particular BA flight was not as accommodating and friendly as I am so accustomed to on BA. Perhaps the flight attendant in charge of our seats was having a bad day. Also, the food on our BA flights to and from NYC was not up to scratch and rather bland and ordinary, compared to their usual. that was a huge disappointment."

Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "Miserable, ancient entertainment system that had to be restarted 3 times"

Pros: "The flight was on time and all went as planned"
Cons: "The in flight service was average"

Pros: "The only thing I liked was the ice cream that was served on the flight. And the Kerry Gold butter."
Cons: "What didn't I like? I didn't like that I bought a ticket from Finnair, got emails from Finnair, for some reason couldn't check in early on the Finnair website, arrived at the airport, waited in the absurdly long check-in line for Finnair only to find out that they had no record of me and I wasn't flying Finnair. Actually, I was on an American Airlines flight."

Pros: "The pilot was briefing us about everything There werent much passengers so we were seated in a way where we had space. Great entertainment choices Great food"
Cons: "Notting i can think of"

Cons: "My Finnair flight from London to New York was cancelled due to weather conditions in New York. I understand that. What made me very frustrated and angry is that when I contacted Finnair to reschedule the flight I was told the flight was managed by British Airways and I would have to contact them When I contacted British Airways they said it was a Finnair flight and I had to contact them. I finally had no recourse but to buy another ticket through another airline. I feel that I should be reimbursed for my Finnair ticket from London to New York! I paid for a flight I never took. (The Finnair flight from New York to London was fine.)"

Pros: "The staff was very nice and attentive. Boarding was timely and flight landed 30 minutes early."
Cons: "Long flight with no screens on the back of the seats with personal entertainment options. Furthermore, I had a middle seat and my shoulders kept knocking into my neighbors. Worst of all, my seat didn't incline as far as the people on either side of me. Sleeping is already hard on a plane, and this made it way worse...not to mention my knees were jammed into the seat in front of me the whole time."

Pros: "We finally landed safely."
Cons: "Sat at gate 4 1/2 hours before 9 1/2 hour flight. Never heard how problem was resolved. Very bumpy ride."

Pros: "Crew politeness"
Cons: "Food is only average and not enough good movies to watch"

Pros: "courteous and helpful crew, easy calm and efficient boarding process, with a announcer who spoke CLEARLY, slowly and loud enough to hear, more comfortable plane than the AA plane I took to get to Paris."
Cons: "In flight entertainment really inferior to other airlines, food mediocre, but adequate. But good service is paramount and your crew was good despite many challenging customers."

Cons: "A lot of turbulence in the middle of the flight"

Pros: "The entertainment"
Cons: "The crew was not as helpful as we hoped for. Did not help in finding a place for the luggage so, did not provide the secrurity paper to fill out. And was not necessarily friendly."

Pros: "Great crew. Lots of refreshments."

Cons: "Finnair "outsourced" the flight to a Portuguese HiFly. Boarding: flight delayed for more than 1 hour, with passengers sitting all this time in the plane and waiting for all connection flights to arrive. As a result we arrived late for our connection flight. The Finnair people that met the passengers on exit form the plain did not provide any information how we should proceed next. We were left to figure it out by ourselves. Crew: The impression was that all the flight attendants from HiFly were untrained. The did not know what to do an how to do. They seemed lost on the plane. Comfort: Plane seemed to be re-purchased from some Arab airline. Food: bad Entertainment: v system was broken. Information system was showing wrong current time."

Cons: "Ingen underhållning ingen flyginformation otrevlig personal jag kommer inte att flyga Finnair igen. Jag och alla andra fick sitta att stirra på väggen framför oss i 7timmar den spanska personalen ska inte jobba för ett nordiskt flygbolag fy fan Med vänlig hälsning Benny"

Pros: "Finn air floor Crew was very polite & HiFly air crew was nice & attentive"
Cons: "No entertainment, non so ever"

Pros: "friendly crew"
Cons: "old B757 aircraft with poor entertainment system, not suitable for long haul flights"

Pros: "The staff was very kind."
Cons: "If I'm paying for a trans-atlantic flight (at a fee of $1,000), I shouldn't be stuck on a plane that is used for domestic flights,and thus does not have the space nor the comfort of a larger plane. And, if this flight is not going to offer the amenities accustomed to a typical trans-atlantic flight (such as in-seat TV), then the price should be substantially cheaper. I will be complaining to the airline itself for this, and may not fly this airline again."

Pros: "food and crew"
Cons: "Poor entertainment offer (no quality movies and not varied options-not classic movies!!). Interactive device menu not working properly or at all. Outraging policy to offer more bookings than available seats that turned out into my wife and me being put in standby when we had purchased our tickets last July. Waiting for 30-40 minutes to claim our baggage to know it had been left in our origin destination in the end so it would probably be delivered 2 days later since the next flight would arrive the following day but late in the evening and more time wasted on the lane to claim for it that caused to miss our connecting train that would take us home and we had to wait for another hour to take the next so we finally got home 2 hours later than expected. We will never use again another company from the one world alliance."

Pros: "on time, rather efficient process, cabin crew"
Cons: "not much room in economy, ipads are not ideal"

Pros: "On the way home i was awake for the whole flight, and found it to be quite good. Had trouble choosing my seat from early check in bit what I got was good. Good good, service great, clean and comfortable."

Pros: "The crew was very friendly and helpful during the flight."
Cons: "The check in was terrible, self checking was not working and not saving time at all, crew at the airport was clearly exceeded and it was very hard to get any answer. I had to be very insistent to be able to check in 5 min before closing and was not the only one in this case."

Pros: "Video and radio were bad."

Cons: "Nothing was dairy free, staff did not even have access to ingredients so I could check myself."

Cons: "Disgusting meal, I left most of it on my tray. The promised entertainment systems were not working. There was no wifi on board either. These were both things I had looked for prior to booking this flight."

Cons: "no food on the first flight no private tv they tell you can have wi fi entertainment but you have to pay for it the staff was rude tell also told me my cary on luggage could not be taken on board because there was no more space so i had to cary all my things for two flights but once i came in into the plane there was plenty of space. the seats had a very low head rest"

Pros: "I liked the food and the service. It was a packed plane but I was well attended to. Would fly again."
Cons: "Slightly long line at the Madrid airport for check in. I wasn't able to check in online but I got there early and it wasn't an issue."

Pros: "The only good thing was we landed early think that was more to do with the wind though!!!"
Cons: "They rebooked us all at the gate and split people up. So boarding was a nightmare without anyone being friendly. The plane was the oldest plane I have seen they had one tv for the plane and the whole section I was sat in didn't have volume that worked and they basically said too bad. The crew didn't respond to any lights that were put on they put their head down and scooted past you. I have been flying to and from USA to UK for 15 years worse flight."

Pros: "Pleasant helpers moved me through the maze and queues"
Cons: "Airport is vast. Transport to T4Satellite left me in nowhere land for a long time. Had longer layover which was fortunate."

Pros: "It was a British airways code share so their service was fantastic... Great job BA 8005"
Cons: "Finnair service was similar to major US carriers... Horrible"

Pros: "Flight was not full Nice clean 777-300 Better food service than in the past ... more snack service With Global Entry, I was off the plane and in a car in less than 20 minutes"

Pros: "The crew is perfect. The food is good. Thank you, Finnish guys!"

Cons: "Dealyed - One hour"

Pros: "i sat next to someone nice."
Cons: "nearly was late because of iberia air check in complication. also i despise flying with iberia and had made hallal request that didnt get processed. abd flight was delayed 4 hours."

Pros: "The fare was the best I found and it got me home on short notice. Service and facilities were the same as other major airlines as the flight was operated by a code share partner. Online booking was smooth and painless."
Cons: "Nothing. I paid for economy and expect all the issues with flying economy. Finnair is in no way to fault for any issues on my flight."

Pros: "We took off on time and landed early."
Cons: "I booked this flight on Finnair. After I paid my non refundable fee, I found that I was booked on Iberia. While I was pleased with Iberia, there are some airlines that I would prefer not to use and there are some that I would never use. This a a critical lack of relevent information when booking through Kyak. I booked the flight after checking the on time and safety record of Finnair assuming, naturally, that Finnair would be the carrier. I think you should know the carrier BEFORE you book."

Pros: "Comfort of plane, meal was good, etc"
Cons: "Seat 10 A excellent...but cabin temp cold...many were wrapped, including me, in blanket!"

Pros: "The food was good"
Cons: "They lost my baggage and still can't seem to find it. There is barely any leg room on the flight."

Pros: "Comfortable, well appointed aircraft. Good service."
Cons: "Would have liked to be able to check in online and to select a seat assignment."

Cons: "The crew was very interested in gossiping instead of assisting their first class passengers. I sat with the same trash since the 2nd hour on a 6 hour first class trip. The entire first class cabin all had their call lights on which were ignored for over an hour. If you asked for anything they seemed to be annoyed they had to stop talking to each other. The cabin was also very warm to be an international flight."

Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Less baby crying"

Cons: "Had the flight delayed 7 times before it was finally canceled, Wasting 9 hours at the airport."

Pros: "Flight cancelled after 7 hour delay"
Cons: "Taking off & landing"

Cons: "Icelandair has decided to make tickets cheap and baggage charges outrageous. My fault for not reading more carefully but I will not fly this airline again."

Pros: "the crew was so helpful. Although the wifi was a little slow the pilot and the crew tried to fix it, and eventually, we were able to stream the world cup semi-final match,"
Cons: "not too many options for entertainment. that's it!"

Cons: "My flight from Keflavik to Boston was cancelled. Waited on the phone for over an hour to speak to an Icelandair rep. Was told that I would be sitting next to my friend for the 6 hour flight. Found out at the gate we weren’t. Overall dissatisfied. Cheaper fare but at what cost. Gate area was a mess."

Pros: "The ability to watch movies; lots of leg room; liquid refreshment - sparkling water. Smooth boarding by row. Plenty of room for carry on baggage."
Cons: "no complementary snack - peanuts, pretzels, etc"

Pros: "The short flying time"
Cons: "The flight was almost 4 hours late, no info why from staff. Got only 7£ voucher for refreshment and dinner not enough on any of the resturants in Term. 2 Lost day at work due to late arrival during night and cost of extra day of parking."

Pros: "Loved the personalized tv in front of me and plenty of space above me in the middle seats!"
Cons: "There were no snacks"

Pros: "The seats were roomy and comfortable, there was legroom. The plane did not feel overstuffed even though it was a packed flight. I also liked how they gave messages on the monitors."
Cons: "More food selections for sale would have been nice, especially fruit and veggies."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Customer service and supervisor had distained attitude, will not travel with Icelandair again"

Pros: "See previous review.. Best of the best."

Pros: "comfortable seats and leg room, good entertainment"
Cons: "need more meal options and entertainment options"

Cons: "I paid a lit of money for the flight from JFK and there was no food on the plane."

Cons: "The attendant taking our tickets to board was very obnoxious. I complained to the crew chief who agreed her behavior was unprofessional."

Pros: "Fast and efficient flight. Comfortable and lovely service personnel,"
Cons: "Departing gate area in Reykjavik was crowded and confusing. But boarding went smoothly once the lines were sorted out."

Pros: "The entertainment and crew were highlights for me"
Cons: "Seats are super uncomfortable, tight and there was no food included on an international 6 hour flight"

Pros: "No comfortable...no food or even head phones...will check WOW from now on"

Pros: "Personnel at counter and on flight were outstanding. Very nice, great service attitude, smart, well-trained."
Cons: "Boarding was a bit chaotic."

Pros: "Handed out a bottle of water to each passenger during boarding"
Cons: "In summary: The cheap ticket is not worth the stress and aggravation. The details: 1) Lost luggage - Over a dozen passengers were told that the pilot deliberately took off knowing that not all of the bags were loaded. We were lucky that after some Facebook shaming, Icelandair was able to locate our bags. We got them the next day, albeit after losing 24 hours of our trip. We were fortunate because our schedule was flexible and we could stay a little longer than intended to pick up our bags from the airport. We met other passengers at the airport who had been waiting for their bags for more than 2 days. Ground crew told us that 16 luggage carts needed to be used to bring in all of the late/lost bags. Worst of all - no compensation offered whatsoever. 2) Flight delays - Two of the four flights we took on Icelandair were late. There was no explanation for the delay, and the airline has so few people on the ground that it could not update the gate or boarding time information timely. This resulted in a mad dash through the airport to get to the gate when the plane finally arrived. We were given no notice but told to get to the gate for immediate departure, as if we were the ones running late. 3) Boarding/stampeding - I have never been on a flight where there is absolutely zero order to the boarding process. Almost every other airline assigns boarding zones/groups but Icelandair simply opens up the doors and lets chaos ensue. Even if the airline does not want to go through the cost of changing its systems to assign boarding zones, it would not cost a thing for the gate agents to simply board from the back of the plane to the front. This is why the boarding process took twice as long as normal and even for the two "on time" flights, we still took off and landed late."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Attitude of employees, totally cold and unhelpful. Is this your culture?"

Pros: "crew, entertainment"
Cons: "flight delayed 2+ hours, boarding was chaotic"

Pros: "TV/music selection tasty wine"
Cons: "Long boarding process"

Pros: "the plane seemed safe"
Cons: "no seats in the airport; long wait for boarding and totally confusing/interfering messages on airport PA system; chaotic boarding "process""

Pros: "Staff was very friendly and helpful, good food options on board, Saga lounge in Keflavik was fabulous!"
Cons: "KEF airport is not well managed - boarding areas have few seats, and process is cumbersome; flights leaving near same time are all boarding from same area. Airport amenities- food, shops are very nice. Also, our flight was delayed (it happens) but caused us to miss our next flight. No there was a snafu with one of our bags not arriving/being on a different flight. We recovered it, but we're not compensated for delay/missing a flight."

Pros: "Nice to have free beverages, USB outlets, good customer service."
Cons: "Not enough leg room; had to switch seats so family could sit together; meals still cost extra on international flights"

Pros: "The air personel were really professional, nice and accomodating except for the flashing light of the duty free cart at 2am in the middle of a dark sleepy plane."
Cons: "Where to start? I'm traveling with my wife and we decided to consolidate our stuff in one luggage since she is pregnant and I don't want her to carry any bag... We are allowed for 2 luggages of 23kg each combined it's 46kg, our bag was 30 kg. Through my previous trips with various airlines we had no pb with that until we reached the check in counter, the lady very politely explained that she has to charge me 35£ back and forth for excessive wait on the bag which I found outrageous so i had to squeeze a bunch of stuff in the hand luggage to send it as a cargo Then she infomed us that the plane is gonna be late for 1h while eventually it was delayed more than 2 h On the plane the staff was very friendly however the variety of food is so limited and the hostess passed by in the middle of flight with the duty free cart decorated as a Christmas tree while the lights were off and everyone was sleeping Finall we reach the airport, the bags took 45 minutes to reach us I love Iceland but i will not book with the same airline again"

Cons: "Delayed"

Pros: "Flight over was satisfactory."
Cons: "The terminal in Reykjavik was dangerously crowded at the "D" gate coming back. They charged me for food and a glass of wine on the return trip but not on the trip over. ???? The flight back was 1 1/2 hours late."

Pros: "flight itself was fine and on flight service was good. Flight was cheap."
Cons: "Strikes at the airport in Iceland are causing significant delays and causing people to miss connecting flights all over Europe and in the US. The airport was completely jammed with people waiting to fly out to the point you could not access the bathrooms. My checked bag also must have been left outside in significant rain for quite some time because it was soaked completely through with water. I had a thick wool blanket on top as well as my clothes in packing cubes and it was all soaked with water. Terrible!! You get what you pay for."

Cons: "No food served on an international flight. Boarding was unorganized."

Pros: "The crew were polite."
Cons: "Plane was late. No room under the seats for a reasonably sized bag"

Cons: "Transfer between flight was very chaotic and terminal appears to be makeshift --- but i guess it's an improvement on NAS Keflavik."

Pros: "The seats were comfortable"
Cons: "Waiting on every flight was late going and returnining"

Pros: "Free entertainment on loaned iPads."
Cons: "Yet another delayed flight with Iceland Air"

Pros: "Its cheap"
Cons: "There was a 2 and a half hour delay, and seats are small"

Pros: "crew very nice. on time. boarding quite easy."
Cons: "food or lack of"

Pros: "Crew was friendly for the most part. Easy boarding process."
Cons: "Seats are very small for international flight. I'm a 5'3 130 pound female and it was uncomfortable for me let alone my 6'3 husband. Seats seemed to be very hard and too upright. Should add at least one complimentary snack or an additional coffee service in the morning."

Pros: "This is a very nice way to fly comfortably. The staff is wonderful, nice lighting with the Aurora Borealis playing. There is lot of entertainment available and you can charge your phone as you fly."
Cons: "Iceland airport in keflavic is very basic, poor signage, and gross bathrooms. If you don't have to stop, it would make the trip better."

Pros: "USB plug to charge electronics was very helpful quick and prompt boarding seats were comfortable plenty of leg room great tv options"

Cons: "They should at least give some snake"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Because of mechanical problems from the start of our trip ,our whole vacation was a nightmare ,we missed all our connections to Paris.The seating space on the plane is horrible .No food on the long trip .Food to be purchased was aweful On the return flight the boarding had to be done manually due to computer failure , therefore we took off late .Never again will I fly with Icelandair."

Cons: "Plane over 1 hour late taking off. Never communicated why the wait. NO PLACE TO SIT AT AIRPORT!!!!! Cold hard cement to sit on with major construction going on. Standing in line almost 2 hours because of no updates. So we had no idea when plane was ready to leave. So we all felt like we could leave to go get food or coffee. Then we finally get on Plane and the entire entertainment system is down. No movies or way to charging phones etc!!!!! For a 6 hour flight that was so frustrating!!!! Then you would think that Icelandair for all the problems would at least comp our meals and drinks!! NOPE!! Pay full price. Flight attendance were great! But we only doing what they were told. I would not take this airline again."

Pros: "I really liked watching the Unique Iceland videos!"

Pros: "Flight staff were great! Very accommodating and pleasant."
Cons: "I wish there were small snacks that were complimentary. Instead of having to pay for the small snacks."

Pros: "Good entertainment selections (TV, Movies, Music, etc)"
Cons: "Boarding the plane was poorly planned. A lot of people crowded the gate before the flight was ready causing a massive jam of customers. Only one employee was taking tickets when two could have been used to speed up the process. Would like a free in air snack. Pretzels, peanuts, anything."

Pros: "comfort and staff"
Cons: "MY entertainment only had one speak worker. My hsband's did not work at all. The USB prot did not work. No food"

Pros: "We landed on time and I received my check baggage within minutes of arriving, too. Very impressed!"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Rude staff at AMS airport made it very uncomfortable, she was unwilling to be polite and had the nastiest attitude. She was almost screaming at me. The flight from Reykjavik to NYC was torture. First, it was delayed. Then we boarded a plane completely and had to unboard, walk across the entire airport to a new gate, wait for the new plane, again delay, and finally board after 3 hours of misery. I really liked IcelandAir on the way to Europe, but the way back to the US was terrible and I will steer clear from purchasing a ticket with this airline next time."

Pros: "Love that meals are part of the flight. Excellent meals, great service."
Cons: "Boarding announcements hard to hear in gate area at Gatwick."

Cons: "Daylight savings. Wrong time. Missed flight. $450 to rebook new one-way. What a nightmare!"

Pros: "See above, ditto."

Pros: "Meals, crew, movies"
Cons: "N/A"

Cons: "No tv at all"

Pros: "New, clean aircraft. Pleasant crew. Good food & plenty to drink. Great TV & movie choices."
Cons: "Economy seats are close & cramped. I’m a 5’3” medium build woman, and I was cramped!"

Pros: "prompt, good service and food"
Cons: "pasta was too salty"

Cons: "Delayed 4 hours and lied to the entire time that it would “only be 20 more minutes” while we were just sitting in the plane on a very old, uncomfortable plane"

Cons: "Many cancellations and airline lost my luggage"

Pros: "The food was good"
Cons: "Because of technical difficulties, we had to get off the plane after having boarded so it left with 1h30 delay. That can happen to everyone though but that's not it. On the plane, after having paid for specific seats, the entertainment system did not work as well as the individual lights despite the crew knowing about it. When we notified them, all they said was "Oh! Someone should've told you. Sorry." The one in charge of the crew offered us champagne but never came back with it. So with my girlfriend, we spent 8 hours from London to NYC in darkness with no entertainment despite having paid for it. Finally, I've been trying to get in touch with customer service for 3 weeks now and I still haven't gotten a hold of anyone."

Cons: "Waited an hr to finally get bags"

Cons: "The chair in front of mine was broken or worn out so that it declined alarmingly far. It felt like the gentleman in front me had his head in my lap. My tray table was also broken so that it listed dangerously and I had to prop it on my arm rest."

Cons: "No electric outlet to charge phone or internet."

Pros: "I guess that a 3-hour delay on departure turned into only a 2 1/2 hour delay on arrival."
Cons: "The boarding process was everyone for themselves. No priority boarding at all - except for handicapped. After that, it was catch as catch can - even if you were first class or business class. The audio selection was the most sparse I've ever seen. Only 5 titles in classical music. Also, the movie "library" had only 5 choices. The flight map was a dated version. On other BA flights, there has been excellent attention to detail in Club World. This one was very poor."

Pros: "Being kept informed all the way from Gatwick to JFK Being able to depart and arrive on time Having very pleasant and attentive crew."
Cons: "Liked everything."

Pros: "I can't believe how close the seats are. The lady behind me got mad at me for wiggling in my seat. My butt was sore as the seat is so small and the guy next to me had his arm on the console all the time so I had to lean left the whole trip. I couldn't charge my phone for 8 hours of the flight so when I got to JFK my phone was dead. It doesn't heart to put power plugs in every row. This is the 21st century and this is British airways representing great Britain. I guess gb isn't great no more. One more thing I don't eat pork and when the flight attendant offered me dinner she said I only have sausage. Be considerate on passengers that don't eat pork"
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "Very old plane, non functioning video unit, broken seat, smelly bathrooms"

Pros: "Pilot was great in bad whether."
Cons: "Pork sausage for dinner, we couldn't believe it!! Not a enough food provided to the flight so we got what was available. Our first family vacation to Europe and had a awful experience for my family."

Pros: "Frequent snacks were good. Especially wine with dinner."
Cons: "Sausage & Bangers not so good. More fresh fruit & salad please."

Pros: "Flight arrived early at destination. Movie and TV options were. good. Crew was fine."
Cons: "Ran out of dinner options early. Screen for entertainment was small. Boarding area in London is away from bathrooms and shops so once you are screened in, you're trapped until boarding."

Pros: "The gluten free option was pretty tasty."
Cons: "On a nearly 8 hour flight, only one meal was served. I was FAMISHED. I was waiting for another snack and the stewardess came around with kit Kat's and shortbread-- im gluten free and can't eat either. Really remarkable blind spot in their planning."

Pros: "The crew was great. My meal was good too!"
Cons: "the older plane did not have personal air vents and it was hotter then I would have liked. Also being in the last row of a section allows us not recline as much while the people in front could recline more, which made for a cramp feeling during the flight."

Cons: "The time it takes for a full 777 aircraft to empty is excessive. Airlines must think outside the box and view the experience from the customers' perspective to create two or more points of exit."

Pros: "On time. Helpful staff on the plane."
Cons: "I had two flights on British Airways on the same day separated by 4 hrs. The " system " would not allow my baggage to be sent to the final destination forcing me through the long arrivals line and then back through the lines for screening a second time for the day. That is not at all customer oriented !"

Pros: "everything went smoothly"
Cons: "Not enough choices for movies or tv shows."

Pros: "Boeing 777"
Cons: "Plane old model, not updated and terrible entertainment"

Pros: "The was good and air hostess was kind and gentle. ."

Pros: "Very comfortable flight"
Cons: "Meat was over cooked. Screen was not clear."

Cons: "Everything important was missing. Poor poor."

Pros: "That I was in shape to run from one terminal to another to catch the flight"
Cons: "The transfer flight was a disaster - see above. We dragged a car seat to the plane and dropped it off before we boarded. Upon landing, there was no car seat to be found. We were told to go to baggage as it would be there. We waited for over an hour for it to come through and it never did. Again no ground staff available to assist. Airport security advised to go BA office. They located the car seat in London. It never made the flight?! We arrived Wed and the car seat wasn't delivered until Friday. Again, no contact from anyone. I received a call from the courier when I was out. Overall, atrocious customer service from BA"

Pros: "2 of the flight attendants"
Cons: "The anarchy boarding process. The lack of plugs on the flight. The 2-year-old lap child in the seat with his Mom next to me that kicked, threw, fussed, hit, cried and more through most of the 8-hour flight because somehow a child that big doesn't need his own seat. The lousy, lousy food. The lack of food. The seats that were so tight I couldn't get up to use the lavatory when the inconsiderate woman in front of me put her seat back (and I'm totally average size). The awful entertainment selection. The worn, dirty plane."

Pros: "It is great that they give every person a blanket and pillow on boarding. Flight was nice and dark. The flanges that pull down on either side of the headrest to lean your head into are genius."
Cons: "Flight was late and announcements were not understandable over the PA. While I understand that seats are made for the "average passenger" and at 5'2" I am on the very low end of that, seat was very uncomfortable with a metal bar higher than the seat cushion poking forward where the cushion met the seatback. The temperature was extremely variable and when my seat mates who did not speak English very well tried to flag a flight attendant down to get an extra blanket, the flight attendants actively ignored them, so I hit my assistance button and my light went on, then after some time it went off again without our being helped so I hit it again about 10 minutes later and my light went on again but was again ignored. Then the attendants started selling things from the flight magazine and looked the other way as they went by my hopeful beacon. When they finally did get to me, I got a curt "I'll see if there is anything I can do" and she went off, returning 5 minutes later with one blanket when there were two people. Later on I saw her give blankets to others, and I found that strange."

Pros: "Both of my flights had no person in the middle seat, so I was able to spread out more in the space which made it much easier to get some sleep, especially on my red eye flight!"
Cons: "No complaints; great service! I'd definitely fly British airways again."

Cons: "Boarding was delayed both departing and arriving for this trip. Poor communication from British Airways."

Cons: "My luggage didn't make it to NY. Very upset about this because I have no idea when it will be delivered!"

Cons: "The seats are so close together the seats are actually painful. I'm 6 ft tall and my boyfriend is 6 3". A very short lady in front of us leaned all the way back and caused such major discomfort my boyfriend had to push her forward. She then complained even tho she visibly had a lot of space. We requested an upgrade from gate crew and flight crew upon boarding but were told the flight was full even though multiple seats were available. Will not fly British Airways again."

Pros: "There was nothing that stood out. It was just as all other airlines."
Cons: "The boarding gate number was given within the last hour before boarding. Travelers need to know ahead of time the gate number especially for an airport as large as Gatwick."

Pros: "Great movies, smooth flight, everyone was polite"

Pros: "Nothing at all."
Cons: "The flight didn't exist. Got to the airport and they said there was a glitch and I booked a flight that didnt have a plane. They drove me to Heathrow and got me on another flight 4 hours later. Missed the last bus home and now am stuck in NYC till the morning."

Pros: "Friendly crew, free alcohol (albeit horrible beer), easy boarding and exiting."
Cons: "2.5 hour delay, personal lights in the cabin didn't work, entertainment screens were broken and/or bad quality."

Pros: "Everything about my flight was brilliant.. Kind, polite and attentive."

Cons: "The Aer Lingus flight was operated by British Airways. But BA decided not to seat Aer Lingus passengers."

Pros: "Nothing they cancelled flights"
Cons: "They counselled flights"

Cons: "The flight was delayed due to a sick passenger, but while that was going on, the crew was also scrambling to assign a woman a new seat as a religious man did not want to sit in the same row as a woman (the 3 seat row would've put the woman 2 seats away from the man with the complaint). This is an unfair and misogynistic policy."

Pros: "The service was excellent. Really liked the economy plus section and the little perks made a big difference."
Cons: "The steak was overcooked. The baggage return added an hour to my trip home (I know this is likely a JFK problem) They are still handing out landing cards and asking you to fill them out at JFK for US passports--stop!"

Pros: "The food was very good. Tarragon chicken."
Cons: "Not large enough seats"

Pros: "Professional staff, quality food and comfortable seat."
Cons: "Flight was late and I was late for a conference call."

Pros: "Services in flight was great"
Cons: "My suit case was broken I noticed when in got home what can I do about it"

Pros: "That we had a meal with choice of wine."

Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "poorly working entertainment system."

Pros: "nothing - they misinformed me left and right so I couldnt make properly informed decisions and then denied me boarding and told me to pay for a new flight after having spent over 750 and 3 days 2 nights at the airport due to the mishaps."
Cons: "staff that gives the correct information so u can properly plan for the check in and boarding procedures and compassion to advocate to let me onto the flight they made me jump thru hoops just to get onto."

Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Food"

Pros: "The tripulation are very nice people. The food is better last year. Is good."
Cons: "The space between seats are small."

Cons: "I was rerouted to Madrid and did not have the correct timely information to cancel and rebook or to get a credit toward a future flight. There was no clear item on line to be used for my problem."

Cons: "The long delay, more than 1.5 hours."

Cons: "The fact that people in coach class up to rows 28 as 2 choices of food and from row 29 and up have no choice we have to eat what they have twice to me"

Pros: "Great lie flat seat. Nice FAs."
Cons: "Food was not that great for intl C"

Pros: "I was very comfortable with empty seats in my row."
Cons: "No entertainment facilities."

Cons: "Though the weather was fine - no excuse - the 7 hours delay! the fact that instead of landing in Newark (my original reservation), we landed in JFK! VERY INCONVENIENT AND AN EXTRA EXPENSE! The fact that in Lisbon airport I had to wait more than one hour to reach the help desk and then plead to receive a voucher for refreshment (left Madeira on an early flight, no breakfast on that flight, the flight to NY delayed till 5 PM!). I chose TAP because it was the most direct way to reach Madeira - but the delays on both flights were more than unfortunate - it was simply poor service."

Pros: "Flight was great"
Cons: "Had to pay extra for my only bag! Didn’t know it wasn’t in the coat of the ticket"

Cons: "I had an awful experience. A flight attendant named Comissário Bruno denied me a second dessert when I asked for one. I was flying business class on flight TP059 on March 4 2018 and have Gold status on Star Alliance. Many passengers had declined dessert and I felt extremely embarrassed by having been denied food on a plane for the first time in my life. The attitude and lack of tact of Comissario Bruno on TP059 spoiled the whole flight experience for me."

Cons: "flight was delayed. ended up missing our flight from newark home."

Pros: "Though it was a short flight, they did offer food and left mine on my table since I was sleeping. I woke up super thirsty and hungry so that was a nice surprise."
Cons: "TAP is perpetually delayed. It’s annoying."

Cons: "The flight attendants didn't come around with anything to drink, except with meals. All international flights I have been on offer multiple drinks through the flight. They charged $80 for a suitcase. This was not a discounted ticket."

Cons: "was delayed 2 hours"

Pros: "Allw"

Pros: "Left on time, arrived early. Food and snacks were good. Very attentive crew."
Cons: "Can't think of anything."

Pros: "I like the flight per se and the crew attention"
Cons: "The boarding process. It was slow, disorganized, didn't take off on time and some people were rude including the searching process that I enter voluntarily because nobody directed me. I when you schedule a flight you should try to take off on time because it can be disruptive for everyone. And when you sell discount tickets at least say you are going to charge 45 dollars for the bag... i wouldn't purchase any discount offer"

Pros: "since it was an older plane maybe it had more leg room"
Cons: "poor quality video and sound for watching movies on long flight attendants were brusque and ignored most passengers(except the ones with special meals) we were on connecting flight with little time in between to grab water or snack - so we sat on this flight for over two hours before we got any refreshments. Some passengers got refills before we got one. Poor execution. we had to check two bags on connecting flight (which we didn't have to do before) and it cost us time and money. Also they lost the two bags - got several days after we got back from trip huge line at immigration - we waited almost two hours will not travel on TAP again"

Pros: "Flight attendants were reponsive. Plane was comfortable enough. Good entertainment options."
Cons: "Plane was a little warm. Would have liked more information in English."

Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Long flight uncomfortable seats"

Pros: "Food, seats, flight attendants & in flight entertainment were all very good."

Pros: "The food in Economy was way better than usual U.S. airline food. Ground staff in Newark were helpful in retrieving a book I left on the plane. Captain had the seat belt sign off early and turned it back on late in descent which allowed people to visit the restrooms. Video entertainment was good."
Cons: "Captain should have made more P.A. announcements during the coast in over Cape Cod to point out areas of interest"

Pros: "Attendants were great throughout. Prompt takeoff. Food was good; drink service even better! Best movie selection I've seen on commercial planes. Seat was comfy. I enjoyed the flight very much and will always consider flying with TAP."

Pros: "Center aisle seat was comfortable and pnethy of room for my carryon overhead and underseat."
Cons: "I would like to see all TAP planes come with a standard entertainment option on the headrest in front of you with the advanced menu option of movies, games, radio, etc. and ensure all headphone jacks are operational. (Thisnflight the screen was messed up...not something you want to look at for 8 hours. ) I couldn't eat half the food because the salad wasn't anything but cabbage and a tomato and the corn and meat dish was cold and weird. I don't know what the dessert was but I got it down. I think the sandwich I got before landing was pesto and mayonnaise but I'm not sure. I didn't get much of it down before gagging. I wish when booking a flight you were given the menu or you could choose early in the flight and then be served. I bet it would cut down on wasted food and money."

Pros: "The crew is always professional and keeps you informed of what changes there are."

Pros: "The seats were comfortable and already stocked with a pillow and blanket for all. we each had a personal screen stocked with movies, music, games and flight info. at no additional cost and that was great for passing the time during a long flight from Lisbon to NY. The crew was the best part, so pleasant and helpful and professional. We were instructed to close the shades and were allowed to sleep and woken up for the custom form and the great meal which had the option of soda or wine, etc. at no additional cost. The quality of the food was impressive and the salad even came with a packet of real Portuguese olive oil and vinegar. When appropriate we all had to open the shades and drinks were served again and later a small snack of a sandwich and a juice were given all in perfect timing."

Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "Filthy dirty airport, club and plane. No power in the seats to boot. Clown show. Never again see above."

Pros: "The seats were very comfortable and there was a n extensive selection of great movies to choose from."
Cons: "There were 2 screaming children in the row next to me. The parents did not handle themselves well. On the brightside, the crew did everything they could to help better the situation."

Pros: "Great flight! Unexpectedly good amount of food and good entertainment. On time. Seats were comfortable w good room."
Cons: "Boarding was pretty disorganized and crowded and seemed like it took even longer than it normally takes. we were lined up for a while before boarding initiated."

Pros: "lots of food and drink"

Pros: "Meal was good."
Cons: "Service was poor, the seat was not comfortable."

Pros: "Great crew."
Cons: "No air from above. Just an all around bad flight with so many problems."

Pros: "Efficient boarding. Very friendly crew. Coach seating comfortable and roomy."
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "It wasn't at all the airline's fault, but this flight saw random searches at the gate of carry-on luggage + patdowns of selected passengers. I understand fully the imperatives for security, However it would be nice if there were some way to signal passengers that they might want to get to the gate early...... Fortunately I'd experienced it before (same flight out of Lisbon) and knew there was a good chance of a repeat...."

Pros: "Generally good and professional."
Cons: "One washroom was permanent;y dirty because the FLUSH mechanism wasn't performing well. Another washroom was permanently locked - causing higher traffic in the remaining washrooms."

Cons: "this was a very last minute flight to return home. It was cancelled within hours. I am very disappointed."

Cons: "Seats were uncomfortable"

Pros: "Out of the 100+ flights I've been on in my life. TAP Portugal has been the worst and least professional."
Cons: "My first flight from Madrid to Portugal was cancelled (at midnight) so I had to sleep in the terminal because the bus they provided to the hotel couldn't take all of us. Then my flight to New Jersey was delayed several hours making me miss my next flight to Denver (home) and I had to spend a 2nd night in the terminal. I never received and hotel/food/taxi vouchers. I will do everything to avoid flying with TAP Portugal ever again."

Pros: "Nice flight, clean planes, decent amount of beverages/food provided, good TVs"

Pros: "USB ports to charge your phone, watched almost a whole season of HIMYM:) good dinner."

Cons: "Once we entered the boarding area we weren't allowed back out to get a sandwich, souvenir, etc. This was absolutely unacceptable. I felt like a prisoner in that area. I can't believe they thought this was OK."

Pros: "Excellent portuguese food served on board, crew was friendly."
Cons: "My entertainment console did not work for the entire 8 hour flight, and to make matters worse the screen kept flashing a bright white light every 30 seconds or so, preventing me from sleeping. I had to tell 3-4 crew members for them to at least broadcast a movie to my seat to make the flashing stop. I was also seated right next to the bathroom, which usually isn't so bad, but since most of the passengers were elderly, it was being used literally nonstop for the majority of the flight. The crew only briefly cleaned it once... I was seated next to a screaming toddler as well. This isn't really the airline's fault, but it certainly didn't help. I felt like I did not get my money's worth for this flight and that it was a poor experience."

Pros: "Good in every way"

Pros: "Very comfortable."
Cons: "All was good."

Pros: "Service, staff, food, airplanes."
Cons: "Nothing."

Pros: "I was lucky enough to be upgraded and I enjoyed everything!"
Cons: "My media center, screen, music etc abruptly shut off and remained off the the entire trip. On my previous flight all sound was lost on the on board media center."

Pros: "They were hospitable, cordial and always with a smile. The fact they provided a full meal on board was surprising to me, after flying with several carriers I didn't expect it. Keep up the great work!"

Pros: "seats, courtesy of the staff"
Cons: "Food"

Cons: "Changed schedule resulting in a one day delay and refused to qquite a legally required refund amount over the course of 5 business days because it was "complicated""
