Cons: We were bussed to the plane, there were long dark hairs on my pillow, and they are generous with snacks at close intervals, but the food could be much better. The ideas are cute, but the actual food is pretty basic, which is disappointing for Virgin, who I hold in high regard. Or did.
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 super helpful and kind. Pesto pasta was the best airplane food I’ve ever had in coach.
Pros: Crew was great. Flight was on time and crew helped the boarding process go smoothly. It was nice to get a beer or wine at no additional cost.
Cons: Seat was shockingly small, even for economy class. TV was poor quality.
Pros: Great crew, comfortable and smooth flight
Pros: Crew was wonderful.
Cons: Freezing cold. Entertainment was limited. Airplane food is what it is.
Cons: The boarding process could be better organized. There is just one large line and it’s like a free for all. There are zones on the tickets but they didn’t board by the zones
Pros: Service was fine but nothing stood out in particular. We liked the newer Dreamliner.
Cons: Seat (economy) not comfortable. Less room that most other aircrafts in the same class. Seats seemed narrow. With all the extra charges, I would not consider Norwegian to be a ‘budget’ or low cost airline. In the end we paid the same, if not more, for a comparable ‘non-low cost’ airline.
Pros: B787 is a great aircraft. It's true the pressurization and the lighting reduce fatigue.Great crew!
Cons: Seats do not recline enough.
Pros: The price The good humored and gracious staff The on-time attitude
Cons: Seats too small Deli mediocre
Cons: Good flight
Pros: Air Canada is consistently a great overall experience.
Cons: The food is terrible. It's the worst of any airline I've ever taken.
Pros: Crew was great, especially Terrace to Vancouver part, very rough landing in Edmonton, which I know is not the airlines fault.
Cons: More leg room, when the people in front laid back their seat, it was crowded.
Pros: Great crew. Thanks Kizel
Cons: We missed our connecting flight due to the fact that the TAP crew leaving Barcelona said there was “fog” and therefore, nearly half of the flight had the same connecting flight to London. On top of it, they had no other flights and put us up in a hotel instead.
Cons: Gate location information delayed until last minute!
Pros: The crew was kind and the flight ok. They wanted to charge me 120.00 USD for my one bag checked ONE WAY. 240.00 USD round trip for one checked bag!!!!! On their website it clearly states one free checked bag for ALL FLIGHTS xcept “discount” fares. No way to prove I purchased “basic”
Cons: They lied. The website does not clearly state that you will be CHARGED FOR CHECKED BAGS. Warning!!
Cons: They are very sneaky and try to make you check carryon bags - for $120. Will never fly w them again.
Cons: They took an extremely long time clearing away the dirty dinner trays, which meant that the tray table had to be down. This made it near impossible to get up to use the restroom or to stretch.
Cons: Flight attendent was late had it been a passenger they would have left them.
Pros: Easy in easy out
Cons: Lack of entertainment
Pros: The gate agent did a great job loading the flight, loaded each group smoothly. Got crackers on this flight.
Cons: No wifi, drinks came in the last 5 minutes flight was 1.5 hours late
Cons: The chairs
Pros: It went well . No problems.
Pros: Had a line of seats to stretch out
Cons: Food was not good, coffee terrible
Cons: Organisation at Tegal airport, was a free for all to board the plane.
Pros: The entertainment this time was working. Always a bonus. Loos were kept clean.
Cons: The younger staff are moody and sullen. If you don't like long hall flights change your job. BA your seats are SO old it's like sitting on a park bench for hours. I know we are in the lowest paid seats but it really isn't acceptable.
Cons: Apathetic crew and service desk - missed flight with no automatic rebooking - I had to wait for two hours on arrival, then take a bus to a new airport and wait another 6 hours to get on a new flight. No upgrade, no compensation
Pros: Nothing really
Cons: Late boarding, had to check the bag, had to wait forever when landed in the plane
Cons: Better boarding process
Pros: Seats were fairly comfortable with decent leg room.
Cons: My biggest complaint is for the exhorbitant baggage fees—€100 for two bags is ridiculous. Also, one of the crew was rather testy with us when we first boarded (unprovoked), then came to us a few minutes later to say something nice to sort of make up for it.
Pros: Efficient and very nice crew
Cons: 90 minutes delay for departure from Brussels to Washington...
Pros: The seats were wide tall and comfortable, there was enough room for the legs as well.
Cons: A little glass of juice would have been nice from the airline.
Cons: It would’ve been better to receive our luggage on time. We have to wait an extra day even though we had to pay 100 Euros to check our bags.
Pros: Punctual, efficient.
Cons: The food could be better.
Pros: The food included veal.
Cons: Departure was 1 hour delayed.
Pros: We almost lost the flight because of long lines at customs and the crew waited for us and let us board the airplane.
Cons: The airplane was super uncomfortable and it was a long flight. I’ve flown with Iberia to Europe in the past and this was my worst experience in terms of comfort.
Cons: the pricing on the items in the menu..., oh and take cash!
Cons: Very disappointed in my first longhaul flight on Norwegian Air. Check in staff at Boston was snarly, the food was very average, and the leg room in economy was the least I've ever experienced on an international flight. I am 5 foot three and I do not understand how anyone even a few inches taller than me would not be in imminent danger of developing a blood clot. Horrible. This is a Dreamliner? I only had nightmares.
Pros: Price for the flight was nice from NYC - JFK to London for me. Useful to have budget airlines for further distances, if you don't mind missing large chunks of basic amenities. Bathrooms on this flight were more clean and nicer than most flights I've been on too.
Cons: I did not like the extremely long and inefficient way they board onto planes. They say they are starting to board and then we waited over 20 minutes just to hear who was going to board first. Then they ask for rows 18-28, leaving out the rows 29-36 or something like that, which created an extremely long and late boarding process. Once they started boarding people it was a giant mess in the waiting area and of course, once people have their ticket scanned, then you continue to wait in a long line past the kiosk for another 10 minutes. Getting Food, drink, and even the Customs Form was really inefficient -- the person with the forms walked quickly down the aisle and missed me because he was looking at the other side and not checking with each aisle like most flight attendents would. I ended up getting my customs form taking it from the drink cart when it was sticking out.
Cons: Flight delay not posted at airport, I did get a notification from kayak; flight took off even later because of “paperwork”
Pros: Flight attendants very friendly
Cons: Difficult to get water during flight. 2 hour delay sitting on the tarmac at airport.
Cons: Check carefully! Our flights were changed and the first was only ten min difference so didn’t think anything of it but when we went to check in they said we would probably miss our connection. The problem was not the time but they changed GATES were really far apart. Was resolved but kind of a hassl
Pros: Everything met my expectations
Cons: More comfortable than I expected for a 6 hour flight. 757 was quite spacious.
Cons: Food really bad on both segments.
Pros: Crew, exit row seat
Cons: Don’t be late
Pros: the drinks
Cons: seat reservation. having to pay for luggage....
Cons: The plane was very hot
Pros: Crew was fantastic, seats and entertainment was great. Very good food choices.
Cons: Everything was very good.
Pros: General flight journey
Pros: Excellent crew service
Cons: Old airplane
Cons: My flight was delayed 2 hours, causing us to miss our connecting flight. We are now stuck in Botoga over night with no luggage. No change of clothes no toiletries. I just wanted to get to Aruba and relax, instead i had a very stressful time with your airline trying to resolve this issue. I would never fly this airline again.
Pros: My wife and I travelled from Punta Cana to Madrid to begin our honeymoon. We chose Wamos Air because their price was ridiculously low. However, we knew that at some point there will be hidden fees of some sort (e.g. seat selection, baggage, food, etc.). Little did we know that there will be be only few things we actually paid. We chose our seats for a reasonable price and, since we travel light, we were able to bring our carry-on and personal bags with us. We didn't expect dinner or breakfast and yet there were given to us! The seats were really comfortable and we liked the friendliness of the crew members.
Cons: People at the counter need to organize in a better way. Too many people for one simple process - check-in. Also boarding turned out to be madness. No structure, no organization, just get on the plane as soon as possible.
Cons: There was nothing about the trip to like. I still have not made it to Agadir. The flight in Denver was delayed two hours, causing my family to miss all connections. This I turn required me to fork out $1000 additional to make it to my final destination.
Pros: I liked that our flight arrived safely and was only delayed by half an hour. That’s really all.
Cons: - $100 baggage fee. For ONE bag. Other airlines don’t charge nearly that much. Apparently, it’s cheaper if I prepay online. What? - Paid $160 to have seats assigned to us but apparently if I show up early, I can totally skip this fee and just pick two seats next to each other. Had no clue because the website isn’t informative. - In flight, meals and drinks were served to a handful of passengers. Nothing was served to me or most people. There was no explanation why nor was there any offer to sell us food. Why? Is the food an extra option? Even if it was, how difficult is it to offer it to the passengers for an upcharge? I know they like upcharging. And it doesn’t explain why the drink cart just strolled by without even asking if I wanted anything. Drinks are extra too? - No personal fan on the ceiling. Come on. Only tiny, old aircrafts dont have fans. - Norwegian advertises free in flight WiFi! But this is very deceptive. You have to download a (terrible) app that doesn’t even so much as give you your flight information. The ONLY thing it does is stream movies. That’s it. It’s essentially their cheap response to having planes without personal LCD screens except it only has one feature. Overall, much more expensive and crappier than what you pay for. If another flight costs $100 more, just take it. This airline doesn’t have its act together.
Cons: We should have had less in our carry on so we had more leg room. The staff was friendly and very helpful. There was plenty of movies, tv options, and games to pass the time when we weren't sleeping on the over night flight.
Pros: United was great.
Cons: DCA is a total disaster. Avoid the airport at all costs. The metro is shut down and everyone is competing for very expensive cabs and ride share. Terrible. Worth it to go to Dulles.
Pros: Movie selection was excellent. Bombardier jet was a notch above what I expected.
Cons: We were over an hour delayed on the first flight. The seats were super uncomfortable for the overnight flight. They left open seats in the upgrade section on the second flight - why would you ever do that?!?
Cons: Flight was canceled and I was left stranded.
Cons: Missed my connecting flight. Had to pay my suitcase extra (60 dollars).
Pros: Everything that happened during the flight was fine. The service, the flight itself, and the landing – which was excellent.
Cons: On the ground, neither the staff nor the signage made it clear exactly where to check in. I was sent to the Lufthansa counter, which didn’t open until 11:30, when I should have gone to the United counter. An hour of my time was wasted, which almost resulted in my missing the one-hour before take-off check-in deadline. The only reason I didn’t miss the deadline was because the flight was late taking off.
Pros: Great crew
Cons: Uncomfortable seating
Pros: The movies
Cons: Flights being on time. Friendlier staff. They would t have misplaced my luggage.
Pros: Arriving early Decent food
Cons: Taking off late
Pros: Our flight from Hamburg to Munich arrived late. Lufthansa met about 10 of us at our arrival gate, took us through a side channel Passport Control and then mini-bused us to our gate. We arrived at the gate 15 minutes after scheduled departure but our plane was there. Very considerate.
Pros: Air Canada is always a great travel experience.
Cons: The food is terrible. It's the worst I've had from any airline.
Pros: We didn’t crash.
Cons: We continue not to crash.
Cons: wonderful cabin crew, easy check in, lovely staff working at the gate and the air canada check in desk. 10/10 experience
Pros: I sat in a seat that wasn’t my assigned seat, and no one said anything. It was awesome!
Pros: No problems on the flight. Attendants were nice.
Cons: It was unusual that we had to go through another security station when changing planes. The home made jam I transported from Paris made it through the Paris security, but was confiscated by the American security. It made my trip home upsetting.
Pros: The customer service representatives are very apologetic and helpful.
Cons: Lack of punctuality. For any flight through British Airways, do not expect to be on time. Both flights were delayed; significantly so that the group I was with ended up missing the connecting flight (that shockingly left on time)
Cons: It was an older plane with no frills. No power cords, tv monitors. The seats were old and didn’t function properly
Pros: Food was OK Pilot was great and took time to explain everything. Helpful and necessary.
Cons: Two hour delay
Pros: very comfortable but because it was not a full flight
Cons: Missing one suitcase and it will be delivered a day late supposedly
Cons: Iin at newark was terrible. They apparently have no assigned checkin area for the airline. A line with hundreds of people played follow the leader through Newark Airport. On way back in Barcelona not nearly enough seats in the . waiting area or nearby. There was huge line because of this.
Cons: Check in had an incredibly long line, was booty possible to check in online. Took me over 2 hours to make a connecting flight due to the check in, fortunately I had a long layover but it would have been incredibly stressful if my time was more limited.
Cons: It was delayed and delayed and delayed then canceled and they didn't have a new flight for 2 days. They canceled it too late so all other flights left so i had to purchase a new 1200$ ticket on a new airline the next day
Cons: Overhead bag to go cargo at cost of 100 fee. Bag then missed plane and was without clothes on landing. Norwegian rep at bag claim indicated I would be fully refunded for necessary clothes purchase and baggage fee, as next flight with bag would not arrive for 24 hours. They now refuse to reimburse
Pros: Reasonable price for premium class seats.
Pros: Smooth overall. Food mediocre but edible. (More than I could say for other airlnes.) Price also good.
Cons: Lots of flight schedules changes. Missed connecting flight as a result. No time left to deal with customs and baggage.
Pros: Flew virgin after long time and kind of disappointment with comfortable seats. seats space is tight and legs space as well with some box under the seat.
Cons: seat comfortable and let space
Pros: The crew were really nice and seemed to genuinely care about the passengers, were approachable and were very happy to chat with passengers and help them out.
Cons: The food options always seem to run out by the back of the plane and this time didn't match the menu they gave me at the start of the flight, not that I minded because the option I was given was pretty tasty.
Pros: Not crowded. Crew was good.
Cons: Not taking a bus to board the plane.
Cons: Seem that they turned off the air conditioning once we landed in the cabin got on the warm side.
Cons: Connection at Schiphol often tricky;
Pros: Everything met my expectations
Cons: Flight was delayed due to crew not being available.
Pros: Just fine, beverage service was friendly.
Cons: The entertainment system was out the entire flight. The flight attendants were just talking to each other as we left, even when I tried to say thank you.
Pros: Crew was friendly
Cons: Passenger who needed wheelchair assistance it took KLM 50 minutes to get him off plane which delayed our boarding. KLM not prepared to handle passengers with needs
Pros: Great plane and staff
Pros: The bed was comfortable. Entertainment selection and large TV screen was good. The KLM crew is amazing, as usual.
Cons: Food quality was not so good.
Pros: Crew was fantastic, seats and entertainment was great. Very good food choices.
Cons: Everything was very good.
Pros: Crew were great
