It's such a disgrace that you thed kayak didn't email me to inform the cancellation flight from cluj on the 7th. I've spent a night at the Hilton hotel in cluj for which you should pay and also lost a say work. Also did 2 covid test te sister me 100 euros and pain. I am writing form Istanbul on the 8th wating to board to Miami flight TK0077. I expect you to have the decency and reimburse all the extra costs that were caused by you not the Turkish aireiles. By email the survey demonstrate that you had no idia about the cancellations. Shemful indeed. Please don't put your incompetence on the Turkish aireiles You can call at 786-285-6755. Thank you Adriana Manari
The ticketing staff were amazing and helpful. The crew was nice. Hopefully Turkish airlines can have more flights coming in and out from Dulles area
Delayed 3 times and keeping saying people to sit down. No clear lines or clear instructions when checkin or boarding. Rude staff. Great pilots though. Experience some lost and found situation at IST. The worse nightmare ever. Staff keep sending me to different people: information desk to lost and found inside gate then to inside TK desk then TK send to outside gate lost and found saying go through customs. Customs say no goes there etc… after 1.5 hrs finally able to find the right lost and found. What make things worse is noone offers to take the luggage. We found someone stuff with passport and we just trying to give it back… why made things so hard on us
Cons: "It was very hot inside the plane"
Pros: "Pilot's landing was top noch."
Cons: "During boarding there was a crowd with no possibility to maintain social distance. Crew should have given propper instructions to avoid that."
Cons: "Good service no delayed"
Cons: "No one came with drink carts until halfway through the flight. I was very hungry, never offered food. Boarding was late but no communication from staff."
Cons: "It took around 15 minutes for airplane to park and I was very near to loose my second flight, if my second flight had not delayed I would have loose it totally."
Cons: "Crew was not helpful at all, didn’t even bother to come when asked for help"
Cons: "The food was a little rough"
Pros: "Smooth service"
Cons: "The dessert. Change it from always service mousse"
Pros: "Courteous and helpful crew"
Cons: "My seat was broken. Entertainment system was non responsige and expressly slow. Couldn’t hear anything from the earphones."
Pros: "It was so smooth. Crew was so nice. Food was delicious. Airplane was so comfortable."
Pros: "Everything! Food was amazing!"
Pros: "I got upgraded to business class, only the fourth time in 60 years flying!"
Pros: "What once was an appealing upgrade is now outdated. Turkish Airlines should look into upgrading their fleet. Otherwise food and service are great as always."
Cons: "Entertainment system was a bust. Our entire isle had issues with the system, movies not playing, music sounding awful. Even cameras and flight map were out. kudos to the cabin chief for going above and beyond and making arrangements in case people wanted to switch seats."
Pros: "Roominess of the business class seat and cabin, they provide a good seat and comfort is good for medium haul flights"
Cons: "The food, Turkish airlines dish up the same stuff all the time, lack of selection and in getting tired of it. Very middle-eastern fare"
Pros: "One of the ticket agents, Diego McNuss, was especially kind and helpful when we checked in. He is a credit to the company. Also, so many special touches on the flight, like the warm wipe and the bag with the socks, etc. Also very kind flight attendants."
Pros: "The flight attendants were amazing. The entertainment. And the comfortability"
Pros: "Quality of Service"
Pros: "Do you like crying babies and kids running around the aircraft? If yes, then you would have loved this flight."
Cons: "Everything. This was the worst star alliance flight i have taken. No control over the passengers, and kids. Screaming children the entire flight. I was not able to sleep at all. They did not dim the lights until extremely late in the flight. Business class lights were dimmed several hours before economy. The staff at gate check-in was not helpful. My seating assignment was separated from my wife. I was told they could not move me. I was originally set to be seated next to a young mother and baby. I switched with her husband and another passenger to be seated next to my wife. Why do I need to arrange a seating assignment that should have been obvious? Plus they did not credit me with my mileage. Thanks, never again."
Cons: "Making my long trip for 9 hours seating beside big fat guy takes his seat and half of mine, asking the crew to change my seat and telling me there is no space available and I can see there's free seats it was so rude, my back hurts me a lot this day and the day next because i was seating with slope."
Pros: "Best Movies and easy to go everywhere. Food voucher was available in case you have flight later than 6 hours."
Pros: "The food on flight."
Cons: "Ground staff in Istanbul were very rude! Staff would not respond to lights turned on on the flight as well, for any assistance."
Pros: "Flight was on time and seating spacious."
Cons: "Preboarding seating was rather limited and the food basic."
Pros: "It was a short flight but they still fed us and supplied beverages. So many airlines do not do this or charge you for everything!"
Pros: "The boarding and the time taken was all fine."
Cons: "The food was served really late because of which I got a headache."
Pros: "the crew were great clean cabin"
Cons: "no entertainment systems lowered the food standard comparing to previous time I flew with them long boarding times"
Cons: "They lost my baggage. And i have all my medicine in it."
Pros: "Just entertainment system and crew makes your life easier on aircraft."
Cons: "Long boarding time from Amsterdam to Istanbul. No explanation of delay and THY wants you to wait miserably on gate. On Schipol airport there is screens everywhere and they do not bother to update the status of boarding. Instead, they behave like everything is normal you are the person making the problem."
Cons: "The veg food is quiet bland"
Pros: "I like the Airline and I think the food is good, the problem sometimes is when you travel a lot you get the same food :) The crew are always great! I do a lot of connections in Istanbul and we never missed one in about two years flying there at least 4 times a month."
Cons: "During boarding they do not always board the Gold members first and in some cases when they do it is only to go on the bus before the others. I would like the Gold members to go first with either a bus of their own to at least with part of the bus reserved and we are allowed first on the plane."
Cons: "Missed the flight bc they changed the gate for the flight without making any announcements. Told me I could pay a penalty fee in excess of $450 to be out on another flight even though same flights to Amsterdam where currently $213 online. When I told them about the price of the tickets online, the response of the customer service agent was "yeah, sometimes the penalties are high". He didn't do anything to try to help. The entire Turkish airlines team at IST is the biggest joke for a customer service team I have ever encountered in any line of business. I have never met a group of "professionals" that are so unprofessional, rude, void of empathy, and overall customer service knowledge than the turkish airlines team at IST. I will never conduct business with Turkish Airlines again and will ensure all my friends, family, and colleagues try their best to avoid them too."
Pros: "Everything was great."
Pros: "Missed my flight because the airport changed gates and didn't announce it. Was told I could pay a penalty o in excess of $450 to be placed on another flight, meanwhile same flights from Istanbul to Amsterdam were going for $213. I will avoid Turkish Airlines at all costs. Customer service is terrible. The most unprofessional, rude, ignorant, and disrespectful staff represent Turkish Airlines at IST. Furthermore, an email complaint has been ignored."
Cons: "They changed my flight date so many times, I was unable to fly"
Pros: "I always enjoy flying with Turkish airlines because the service and care is exceptional !"
Pros: "Staff on plane were friendly and respectful"
Cons: "Landing was rough , boarding gate is isolated from amenities"
Pros: "The entertainment and food were excellent."
Pros: "The food was amazing."
Cons: "The inflight entertainment didn't work on one of my flights."
Pros: "Crew were pleasant and did a superb job of making passengers feel welcome."
Cons: "My gripe is mostly with the ground staff. I was happily sitting in the lounge drinking copious amounts of hot tea due to an illness when my flights status changed on the monitor; "go to gate", it read. When I dutifully arrived at the gate, what was happening? Absolutely nothing. I sat there shivering for another 30 mins before boarding, my heat source (the tea) removed. The moral of the story is that a passenger's time has value, DO NOT waste it. In my case, the cost was physical agony of freezing on a mediterranean island in the summer while wearing 2 shirts, long pants, and double socks. If the ground staff did everything to procedure and are thus faultless, then the procedure is reprehensible and should be updated."
Pros: "Enjoyed the flight, airports, service."
Pros: "The crew were all professional and friendly. They made the flight very pleasant. The food was good and served promptly."
Cons: "The space on ALL airlines now are so claustrophobic it is not that fun to sit squashed into a tiny space. Air travel companies in general has teally made people who can't afford to go first class feel like livestock. But the trip was pleasant due to the crew's nice attitude."
Pros: "Spacious, nice, friendly, I didn't eat the food because I have dietary restrictions but it looked good."
Cons: "Lousy boarding, we were standing on the bus for a long time, in front of the not ready airplane. Entertainment was bad, the sound plugs didn't work properly, the movies kept breaking off. Not a standard we were expecting at all :("
Pros: "enjoyed the entertainment in flight movies, food service was good and the seats were fairly comfortable"
Cons: "Took a while to board the plane a lot of standing around it seemed for no reason"
Pros: "Overall not a good experience"
Check in very slow Security very slow Flight slightly delayed On board experience good. Flight attendants excellent Food good and plentiful. Transfer at LAX stressful die to short time available and massive queue- helped by wonderful customer service agent. Flight LAX to Tuscon uneventful and comfortable.
The flight was delayed twice causing us to arrive in Amsterdam about 5 hours late.
The movies and lighting did not work. Internet was available for a price. The airline should have compensated by paying for internets so a movie could be watched on my own device.
Crew could be more attentive
Your check in area was confusing. First no one was there and then we were directed to Delta ro check in. How was I supposed to know this?we were there for an hour before discovering where to go. I looked on line for checking at Virgin Atlantic but it should have been Delta. I wasn't contacted by email for check in durections.
The new business class configuration isn't the best. Knees keep bumping. The seat area wasn't the cleanest either. There was an orange peel on the floor. Meal - mediocre.
Pros: "Great service and comfortable ride excellent staff"
Cons: "Cannot expect better service"
Pros: "Boarding and crew great!"
Cons: "Seats extremely narrow"
Pros: "Although there were delays they kept us informed on a regular basis as to what to expect and seemed genuinely apologetic for any inconveniences. Boarding and deplaning were smooth and efficient. I really appreciated that there was no charge for checking a bag. I am certain that contributes to the ease of everyone getting on and off the plane. Our bags arrived at baggage claim about the same time we got there. I would definitely fly with Virgin Atlantic again."
Pros: "The seats reclined at a good pitch and were very comfortable. The crew were friendly and service was good."
Cons: "I understand that on the night flight, they were trying to keep the lights up for dinner service, but it prevented my toddler from being able to sleep and thus made for a difficult rest of the journey."
Cons: "Squishy space and very late flight unfortunately"
Pros: "Loads of leg room compared with other flights (I'm 6' and my knees are usually embedded in the seat in front, but not this time!"
Cons: "USB socket on the entertainment on both flight out and return was broken."
Cons: "Seats were really old and outdated"
Pros: "The food was good. The lane was comfortable"
Cons: "The flight was nearly full, and the 767 is a large aircraft. I think it would be preferable if Virgin Atlantic would board the plane by zones, similar to other airlines."
Pros: "The crew were lovely and the seats were ok."
Cons: "Not a lot to Improve on to Be fair"
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 attentive service, good food and in-flight entertainment"
Pros: "Comfort, service food and entertainment. What more can you ask for."
Cons: "Nothing. ]"
Pros: "Nobody are better hosts than the British. Great service, lovely people."

Pros: "Lots of leg room, even in economy."
Cons: "Entertainment choices were a bit sparse."
Cons: "Bed was incredibly uncomfortable in first class. It was like sleeping on the floor. People talking loudly in the bar late into the night, which made it even harder to sleep. Didn’t sleep a wink on this 10 hour flight."
Pros: "Service, meals, friendly and attentive FAs"
Cons: "Incredibly uncomfortable, not enough minimum space to fit my knees behind seat in front when front passenger reclined. 6 hours is too long to have a metal rod sticking straight into your knee caps. Shoulders were squished between other passengers and had to sit twisted the whole way and Im not a large person, but am 6ft. Cabin crew impolite and unhelpful. Food was awful and made my friend sick."
Pros: "Legroom, lovely staff and all round good flight"
Pros: "Friendly cabin crew, excellent food and drinks. Very happy with the service we received"
Pros: "Free everything...food, wine, spirits, movies, etc. Nice crew!"
Cons: "Seats a little hard, main dinner dish was a little odd but okay."
Cons: "My flight was cancelled on Christmas Day, but we had to stand in line to wait to get onto another flight on another airline. They were so slow that the flight they tried to put everyone left and then they offered ZERO assistance to get another flight and wouldn’t even refund my ticket, just told me after waiting 3 hours to call whoever I booked with for a refund."
Pros: "Crew was very nice helpful and attentionate Entertainment had plenty of variety maybe not so many new movies but enough to find one you have not seen or classic you could watch again Food was good"
Cons: "We weighted our hand luggage at the counter and then they ask again during boarding little confusing"
Cons: "I always think Virgin's meals are the WORST among those of all the airlines I use. PLEASE LET THE VIRGIN COMPANY KNOW THIS FACT. The touch screen of the DVD player did not work well so it was a frustrating experience."
Pros: "Crew was professional."
Cons: "Couldn't stretch my right (window side) leg. Display quality was poor."
Pros: "Reasonably comfortable for a long jet ride. Helpful and considerate flight attendants."
Cons: "The strange windows that kept it looking like night out until 30 minutes before we landed. I prefer the natural light to help readjust my time zones."
Cons: "Very small leg room"
Cons: "Food was awful. Sorry. Breakfast was unrecognizable. Landed hungry."
Pros: "I thought the food was mediocre for business class"
Pros: "This is my new favorite airline. I loved the staff and all the amenities. I was so comfortable and the food choices were great. I felt like I was cared for and my comfort mattered."
Pros: "The flight was on time."
Cons: "The floor at our feet had been spilled on during a previous flight and not cleaned. Bag was lost and not returned for 5 days. Crew during flight was flippant and disinterested in service...unless you were Economy+."
Pros: "Not having to pay for a checked bag. The check-in process was very easy The bag drop-off line was pretty speedy."
Cons: "The airline stewardesses moved very noisy passengers next to me and talked to them the whole flight."

Pros: "Great seat. I did the upgrade and it was so comfortable ...good food."
Cons: "They closed the shades immediately when we took off. Creepy"

Cons: "Got assigned seats all the way in the back. They were comfortable but would have preferred better seats."
Pros: "Staff was friendly and welcoming."
Cons: "There was nothing not to like."
Pros: "Crew was awesome and their service was great. I liked that they put snacks like fruit out to eat during the flight."
Cons: "The meals were terrible. I flew on VA a couple of years ago and the food was very good but it has really gone down since then."
Pros: "Food was very good crew were pleasant and helpful"
Cons: "Seats are very hard"
Pros: "The space you have with your legs is sufficient and the chairs are very comfortable. The food was really nice. I enjoyed the trip, although it was a long one."
Cons: "My video monitor didn't work so I couldn't watch movies, asked the crew twice to help and they never did. Then to top off a terrible 10 hour flight with no entertainment, my bag never made it. Worst experience ever"
Pros: "The food has improved."
Cons: "Flight turned back after an hour. Held in HK for 24 hours. Dreamliner no big sea change in air transport. Economy still uncomfortable and cramped. Crew give the impression of being bossy and aloof, I saw them making faces behind someone's back. Emirates crew are so much more helpful and pleasant."
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: "Wasn't overcrowded, the food and service were great"
Cons: "They ran out of beer!"
Pros: "Lovely crew, very helpful"
Cons: "Having to change my seat to accommodate a rude belligerent passenger, who had taken my seat, refused to move until spoken to by steward. She then made my flight a nightmare, until I let her sit in my aisle seat. Even then she was not satisfied, she abused me the whole flight damaged the screen so I could not use it until the steward fixed it. Demanded that I except any and all alcohol to give to her to drink. When I am tea total she then continued to abuse me. I asked the steward to move me he just shrugged his shoulders and said there was nowhere else. This is definitely my the worst flight I have experienced."
Pros: "Was happy to pay extra 45.5 pounds for laugages which was hidden"
Cons: "Not happy to pay extra money for my case"
Cons: "The flight advertised meals..a small pastry was served an hour into the flight. I asked when the meal would be and was told a few hours...which turned out to be breakfast..i wated all night for food that only came an hour before landing. Now hungrey and tierd.I.will not be flying klm ever again !!"
Pros: "I bought the Airport tickets for my Russian friend. However customs would not allow her to board the plane unfortunately. That's not Kayaks fault. I would definitely book with Kayak again. Many thanks."
Pros: "Good flight, arriving well on time."
Pros: "Interior of the plane was clean. Smooth landing."
Cons: "Pilot did not avoid turbulence"
Pros: "Boarding was as expected, crew & food were ok. Nothing else positive to extract out of this flight."
Cons: "Delayed flight, horrible baggae policy when the flight is actually operated by a partner of the company you bought the ticket from and not the actual company. Dirty seats, no in-flight entertainment whatsoever (not even a magazine)."
Pros: "Arrived Early!"
Cons: "Left Late :-)"
Pros: "Overall everything was ok."
Cons: "Not that I cared at the time but having been asked for a rating on “entertainment” - there was none. Cheap and cheerful really. No extras over the likes of RyanAir."
Pros: "Fabulous trip with friendly, helpful staff"
Pros: "Flight was delayed for 15 min resulting in passengers rushing to make their connecting flights.but staff kept passengers informed."
Cons: "Flight departing late."
Pros: "The time keeping was very good. We left on time and arrived early on both occasion. Good organisation. Excellent service."

Pros: "Booked extra room seat which gave me good room for seating"
Pros: "The aircraft was clean"
Cons: "The food was terrible, wifi was extremely expensive (Delta had free messaging over their wifi)"
Pros: "All cabin crew were courteous. Refreshments were light. Check stuff were helpful, they did devise that the flight was full and due to space hand luggage would prefer to be put in hold free of charge. We did not have any problem with this. Plane was clean."
Cons: "Service was a little slow going through the gate, it seemed to take a while for everyone to get on board."
Pros: "I personally do not appreciate the food on this leg of the journey Food Ams to Dxb is GOOD!!"
Cons: "The snack & “ solid eggs” in breakfast. Fresh fruit was good."
Pros: "Comfortable seats. Warm plane with happy staff."
Cons: "Maybe a second sandwich option for food, not everyone likes cheese."
Pros: "Very friendly crew"
Pros: "Only thing we liked was the fact that we were able to get onto our flight at all..."
Cons: "Was not informed that checking in online is the only way to secure a seat. So, regardless of whether you book your tickets 3 months in advance or the day before, you're not actually guaranteed a seat unless you check in online. We weren't told this until we were at the airport and checked in there that we might not be able to get our pre-booked in advance flight because of over-booking from KLM. We then had to wait and see if there were seats available when boarding. Luckily, there were, but we were not sat together. Not the greatest start to our first holiday together as a couple. We were told that if there weren't seats available, they'd pay for us to get to another airport to fly out, which would have meant a huge delay on the only time off we'd get together this year and have to rearrange our pre-booked and pre-paid living arrangements for the week. All because there wasn't a lot of emphasis on the need to check in online before hand. You'd think if someone checked in at the airport, that would be more of a guarantee that they'd be flying with you that day, but apparently not. Definitely not impressed or happy with this part of the KLM experience. This is the only company that we've had this problem with, they should make it clearer that it is essential to check in online."
Pros: "Helpful and smiling cabin crew."
Pros: "The cabin crew were good. They explained what the arrangements were for the delayed flight connections"
Cons: "The plane wasn't refueled and so was not ready for take off once the passengers were loaded. The plane had a technical problem when it tried the first take off and so it had to be abandoned. This was alarming.."
Pros: "In flight food was enjoyable"
Pros: "The food and the punctuality"
Cons: "The technology in interteiment is not touch screen"
Pros: "Everything. A truly faultless experience!"
Cons: "Dutch sub titels would be nice."
Cons: "I don’t like the limited choice of drinks on these short KLM flights."
Pros: "Crew good flight was fine apart from delay due to fog in Amsterdam but kept informed"
Cons: "Flight was delayed due to weather in Amsterdam area"
Pros: "Service provided by the staff"
Cons: "The navigation of the entertainment system is not very friendly"
Pros: "The supplied pack of toothpaste/toothbrush"
Pros: "Short-hop flight, fit for purpose."
Pros: "Cabin crew very pleasant"
Cons: "Lost our bags, little sympathy from staff"
Pros: "From downloading the KLM app to the final touchdown of my final flight, everything was an ease, checking in, the option to change my seat, the service received was great."
Cons: "The ability to state a seat or meal preference within the app would be good but otherwise all was good."
Cons: "Flight was delayed 8 hours. Arriving at Incheon, discovered ground crew were unaware of our arrival to take this connecting flight. However, we were put up overnight in a hotel, which was nice."
Pros: "The staff at the front desk for the check-in were extremely helpful. I had a complicated issue with my luggage and they helped me to sort it out in the best possible way. Amazing service! Furthermore, the entertainment on board is great! Nice movies, nice food, friendly flight attendants, etc. They even offered me a second sandwich =)! I truly loved my experience with KLM."
Pros: "Priority boarding was appreciated and the flights were on time. Service was fine. Schipol was good."
Pros: "The very dirty plane was cleaned at Dar-es-salaam and became less dirty. The pilot kept us updated periodically through the flight. The flight attendants were very pleasant."
Cons: "The plane was very dirty when we landed in Dar-es-salaam. The plane did get cleaned a little bit in Dar-es-salaam however I was still missing a pillow and blanket which I had to actively seek out. Seating was not very comfortable as there was a box attached to the leg of the seat in front of me, making it necessary to keep my feet at an uncomfortable angle through the long flight. I did not enjoy the food."
Cons: "Late Cabin extremely warm Full flight and centre seat means no room to relax or carry out work"
Cons: "Long stop over at Schiphol. Too Long!!!!"
Cons: "magazines very dog eared and some badly torn"
Cons: "Flight from Amsterdam was 2 hours late. Caused me to miss connection on train from London to Leeds which then cost me 124 pounds to rebook. No information was forthcoming at all at the airport and there were 3 different departure times given. Absolute chaos. The airline is a joke"
Pros: "The crew were just amazing, such lovely male stewards! They were helpful and friendly and generally wonderful."
Cons: "The entertainment was quite dated and didn't have new movies etc"
Pros: "No chargers or tv on planes"
Cons: "At Amsterdam we were told that our checkin luggage wouldn't be at Sydney!! Some low fat meals were terrible!"
Cons: "The bags where damaged from the staff"
Pros: "Amazing crew, fast boarding."
Cons: "Uninspired food. I was served the same meals 30 years ago."
Pros: "I really enjoyed the ease of boarding and how smooth the flight went. The airline crew was friendly and the food was great."
Cons: "I wish that I was informed ahead of time that SAS GO LITE flights do not include check-in baggage. I ended up paying $109 instead of $60 because I was unaware that the fees change the day of departure. This upset me."
Pros: "Crew on EWR to ARN was so-so. They lock restrooms at the back because they don't people hanging around the kitchen in the back. Also, the one cabin crew does not say Excuse Me when he needs to pass- he just touches you and pushes you aside Also, the one cabin crew"
Cons: "Helpful flight attendant, kind check in attendant"
Pros: "Check in was so easy."
Pros: "Crew was business only."
Cons: "More engaged crew. The"
Pros: "On time. Arrive early. Smooth flight and landing."
Cons: "More meal options. Only chicken for dinner. I’m vegetarian."
Pros: "The movie section and food were very good"
Cons: "The temperature of the flight was out of control it was very hot for the full 9 hr there was something wrong with the plane and the crew was not addressing it."
Pros: "My flight has been cancelled"
Pros: "Great food, typically on time and very prompt. entertainment was good. It was an older plane so the actual screens and monitors or outdated."
Cons: "There were several babies crying for at least 2/3 hours and of course it is not the fault of the crew or airline. But that definitely left a lot of people dissatisfied with an overnight flight in which we are hoping to rest before arriving in Copenhagen. Seats are getting smaller and smaller. Spaces are very tight but that seems to be the norm with all airlines"
Cons: "Missed connecting flight from Copenhagen to Geneva since flight from Newark left over an hour late.. They booked me on a flight to Zurich and then to Geneva. Had a connection to France booked separately that I had to move."
Pros: "Great legroom for premium seats. Even though not an emergency exit, bags need to go up, which doesn’t make sense at all."
Cons: "Seats itself uncomfortable for long flights. Boarding process could be better."
Pros: "The 7 hr trip to Copenhagen was rough. The seats are too close together. My knees hit the seat in front of me even without reclining. When the seat in front of me reclined the tv screen was 6” away from my face. It was next to impossible to get out of the seat."
Pros: "I liked that it was available for me to return to Amsterdam in such late notice. Got there quickly and even earlier (10 mins) then expected."
Cons: "No on offered me anything to drink or a snack the entire flight or even a hand towel but others in front and behind me were receiving them. I didnt even feel acknowledged during the flight. Even though the tine was good, the price was way too high but since I was desperate I paid it."
Pros: "The crew was great and the food as well"
Cons: "Boarding chaotic and Newark airport is very inconvenient. No signs to terminal B and the sky train with the compartment system is not very functional. I am tall person and sitting in the middle of the middle row was very inconvenient wilh not enough leg space."
Pros: "Efficient crew, food served at proper temperatures Good movie selections"
Cons: "My seat could/would not recline, passenger in front of me had his seat in recline for most of flight. it was a long uncomfortable flight."
Cons: "Check-in was a disaster. Took almost one hour for a trainee to check us in. Printed 8 bag tickets (for 2 bags) and after we complained was told there was no line at immigration, so should be okay. Guess having a 3 year old wasn’t enough for us to get any compassion or expedited service. At gate. No early boarding for children."
Cons: "The flight from EWR to Oslo was delayed by over 2 hours which meant I would miss my next connection... and I understand that happens sometimes. But, it was after hours on the airline number phone number and the fly.com customer service could not help with finding an alternate connection from Oslo to FRA. It was frustrating to then have to wait at Oslo airport for another 4 hours before the new connecting flight."
Pros: "Excellent all around. Super smooth, friendly and fast!!"
Pros: "Really appreciated how helpful everyone was, from check-in at Newark to arrival. The entertainment system worked well, too. Aside from the two issues I describe below, SAS seems to be extremely efficient and well-run."
Cons: "There was some mix-up - not sure where - but I did requested a vegetarian meal and it wasn't in the system. I'd also requested an aisle seat due to a hip issue and was told I'd have one - but when I went to check in, I'd been put in a center seat in a bulkhead. I was able to change but it was the last row of the plane. We the gate they were able to move me up at the last minute - but this all could've been much easier."
Pros: "No entertainment. Food not part of basic deal. But was both no problem for me because it was a short flight. On both points I rather would say: N/A"
Cons: "Chairs were narrow and not so comfy."
Pros: "Again, the flight was fine, and cabin crew was friendly"
Cons: "When I went to the SAS counter to print my boarding pass, the counter lady couldn't find my information. She left me at the counter and went inside to find out more info. Then when she came out, she started interrogating me forcefully, about why I got United involved with my check in for my first leg of the trip, because I am causing her to have all this extra work and etc. How dare she!!! First of all. I didn't want to involve United, the service counter at SAS was closed the entire time, and the flight on my first leg was operated by United, so i had no choice but to go to United. In fact I should be the one asking why I had to involve United in the first place. Where was SAS when I needed their help and guidance???? Why was their counter closed the entire time??? Such a poorly organized airline, I'll be wary to fly with SAS again."
Pros: "I liked that we landed."
Cons: "Why can't SAS ever be on time? The last 4-5 flights I've been on have connected me either too late or just barely in time for connecting flights. Please be more like Swiss."
Pros: "Upgraded to business class"
Cons: "Flight delayed an hour & half"
Pros: "I was running late for the flight due to bad traffic en route to the airport. Nonetheless, the staff was very understanding, and called me to the gate once I finally arrived to assign me a seat since I wasn't given one when I checked in online. They upgraded me without my asking... to an economy plus exit row, so I had lots of room during the 8 hour flight to Copenhagen. The plane was new - an Airbus A330 - and the flight crew was friendly and helpful."
Cons: "The agent at the gate misled me into thinking there would be no fee associated with a checked bag. When it turned out there was, I was told it was too late."
Cons: "Multiple maintenance delays and groundcrew forgot to load some bags so there was an even further delay. Flight was cramped too."
Cons: "Missed my flight due to weather east coast"
Cons: "We were unaware of the need to buy an infant ticket on international flights. When we checked in to our SAS flight in Newark, we were given a boarding pass for our infant without any heads up about the issue. We also got help with ordering bassinet from the gate agent, all without anything surfaced. It wasn't until we were boarding that we learned that we needed to buy a ticket and pay $400+ and nearly didn't make the flight. Can someone follow up now, as we need to make sure this issue has now been resolved for our return flight to SFO on Thursday July 6th"
Pros: "The airline is very professional and the crew were very courteous."
Cons: "During my layover, the airline did not post the gate for my flight to Athens until an hour before, which caused me to have to run across the terminal to another set of gates."
Pros: "After four hours waiting on the tarmac, at 3AM in the morning, the flying attendants gave us free peanuts. That was very thoughtful."
Cons: "Worst experience ever. We waited on the tarmac for almost 4 hours, due a technical problem. Finally, they gave up attempting to solve the problem (at 3.30AM), and we disembarked. No assistance at all. No hotel. No meals. Rescheduling was a lengthy process. Staff was rude. Really a nightmare of an experience. Note to self: never ever fly again with SAS."
Cons: "The flight arrived an hour late."
Pros: "Very good service with excellent entertainment. Nice smooth flight. An excellent value."
Cons: "Passport control in Copenhagen is too slow to allow for a 35 minute layover. We missed our flight to Stuttgart and had to go to the transfers counter. The service at the transfers counter was outstanding and they put us onto a Lufhansa flight. In the end we got to Stuttgart 5 hours later than planned."
Cons: "1) on the plane, they announced a choice of two meals and I enquired why did I get one without choice and they told me the second choice was an option only for 'economy plus' !! That was a rude situation....I felt cheated and then insulted . 2) CPH - Nice : The breakfast or the included orange drink gave me an upset stomach and bad case of Hemorroides. 3) I accepted a glass of tomatoe juice and when I asked for a coke with my lunch , the stewardess said I had only right to one drink and would have to pay the rest....really ? - wine used to be free and now a glass costs $4...really ?? 4) I arrived at CPH airport for my transfer .. the flight was yet not on the screen but no one gave any instruction and no officials of any kind were around to enquire....a cleaning crew finally directed me correctly. 5) the security line in New York to board was ridiculously long...someone shouted to take off our smelly shoes...really ?? 6) most were directed to the right with four snaking unending lines to one security check . From time to time others were directly directed ed to the left where there was no line and option of two security checks. Half way through my wait , most were directed to the left and all who were 'late', were let out first to their gate. The whole experience before, on the plane and after was not worth the money...least of all a pleasant one."
Pros: "Even though I did not get the seat I paid extra for, it was a great flight."
Pros: "The flight from Newark to Stockholm was late, so I was late for the flight to Vilnius,had to recheck-in and wait for 6 hours."
Pros: "We got to sit in the emergency aisle so I can't complain about comfort. The staff was really friendly (although they were really rude on the way over 10 days earlier, so I guess we just got lucky with a nice crew for this one)."
Cons: "You only get one free non-alcoholic drink on this flight and that's really stingy for a 7+ hour a long haul. Drinks should be free on a long haul, especially non-alcoholic ones. There aren't any free small snacks like chips or peanuts. You have to pay for everything and the menu is exorbitantly over priced. It's a cheap and insulting customer strategy. They can save a few bucks in overhead on each customer this way, but they are losing money in the long run because I'll never book with them again due to their tawdry actions. I doubt I am alone."
Cons: "Discovered that I would have to pay 70 euro for my bag check-in. Not fun at all."
Pros: "Crew was very helpful and attentive. Seemed to care about the comfort of the passengers. Very inviting and gracious."
Cons: "Seats and pillows could be more comfortable. All airline food is not good so okay indicated above is above expectations."
Pros: "The thoughtfulness and competency of the personnel. I needed wheelchair assistance and found that every was very attentive to my needs and very competent, especially the ones assigned to get me from place to place. Even in Rome, where we had to deplane on the tarmac, I had a young woman and a young man to assist me and they helped me in every way possible."
Cons: "I needed a gluten free meal and found it rather dry and unappetizing."
Pros: "It was great to have a bottle of water right at the beginning of the flight! Made it easier to settle down and relax."
Cons: "It would be great to have a greater offer of music. I really like to listen to some new music from good artists and to get inspired for new music on a long flight. It's too bad, SAS only offers playlists of 1 hour..."
Pros: "The extra leg room I paid for."
Cons: "The cost to change my flight"
Pros: "The food and movies were good."
Cons: "Didn't have enough money to sit in a seat with leg room."
Pros: "Boarding process was lovely, flight attendants were very nice, very smooth flight"
Cons: "Uncomfortable seats, somewhat small for a 6-foot+ tall person to fit, especially legroom"
Cons: "I wasn't able to take this flight due to my first leg being cancelled. However, I did end up being placed on the SAS flight to Stockholm from Chicago, which was an overall nice flight. The only thing I didn't like was the timing of the flight. Because my starting point was from somewhere other than Chicago, this made for a very long and tiring trip. I wouldn't recommend this flight for people flying from places other than Chicago."
Pros: "We were within a reasonable range of on time arriving, although we were delayed 30 minutes at the start due to fueling issues. Crew was average: no problems, no extraordinary acts of kindness. Great selection of movies to watch onboard."
Cons: "Tight seats, lousy food, even for airplane food."
Cons: "Seats are bit dence. It would have been nice to get a complimentary soft drink, even it's a short flight"
Pros: "Really pleasant flight. Excellent pilot, good crew."
Cons: "Nothing! This was one of my best flights ever."
Pros: "Excellent communication through email the few days before departures eg confirmation of flight,gate numbers ect. It was my first time with Kayak and will definitely not be my last."
Cons: "nothing !"
Cons: "My wife requested a vegan menu as she has allergic to chicken and egg, and it was accepted a week before the flight. But a normal food was served to her, so we said to the crew to change the meal. She, the crew, said "we don't know the request, we don't have more vegan meal." She didn't apologize about that, additionally she requested to show a confirmation number with an arrogant attitude. Anyway we asked to bring a vegetarian meal, she brought it, and we asked her if it contains egg (sometimes seasoning contains egg). She said she would check and come back soon, but she never appeared. What a rude crew she was. What an unsophisticated system the flight company has. We were so disappointed."
Cons: "They forgot our vegetarian meal requests on both flights. Few drinks. Old movies."
Pros: "flight was fine."
Cons: "very disappointed Iceland Air is charging $95 for 1 piece of luggage. This is making me rethink the "deal" because it added $190 to the cost of the flight."
Pros: "Crew was courteous and helpful. Boarding was good. Planes were on time."
Cons: "Planes rented and old. Pilots not as familiar with plane; interior deteriorating; seats too narrow; three men in a row had too broad shoulders to fit (could be easily fixed); under seat space dividers offset so not clear feet nor luggage space; whole plane smelled terrible— tone down fragrance"
Pros: "Cabin crew was very nice."
Cons: "No food was served for an international flight. This isn’t a budget airline."
Pros: "Seats were very uncomfortable (economy), cabin was smelling urinal, flight was full, just the thought to go to the amazing country kept us (4 of us) encouraged."
Cons: "Seat comfort for six (6) hours flight could be better"
Cons: "It was so HOT in our original row (13). The woman next to us passed out, no doubt because of how uncomfortably hot it was"
Pros: "It was on time"
Cons: "Providing food/meals would be good"
Pros: "Crew was friendly."
Cons: "During the flight many people (including myself) complained about the very cold temperature setting inside the cabin. Passengers who asked for a second blanket did not get any. Unfortunately, the crew never switched on the heating system in order to make the flight comfortable for most passengers."
Cons: "The seats on this plane were very tiny and did not recline at all. This was the most uncomfortable 767 that I have ever flown!"
Cons: "Agents went out of their way so my wife and I could sit together. Thanks so much!"
Pros: "Paid extra for legroom, but sadly the seat did not recline much due to being in row at the emergency exit"
Pros: "I like that they give a pillow and blanket on the plane. I also like that from Dulles to reyjavik they gave us a bottle of water."
Cons: "The boarding process is a bit confusing and not well organized compared to other airlines. They should give a bottle of water every flight."
Pros: "Larger plane with more room"
Cons: "Boarding was a mess, no rows called; no one at the help desk."
Pros: "Departure from Reykjavik was delayed by about 15 minutes. The flught was not full so I had a spare seat next to mine to stretch s bit"
Cons: "More communication on delays would rsse strees on passengers"
Cons: "Every flight on Icelandair that I had, was delayed. Very slow check in assistance. Ground crew were not friendly nor helpful. They would push and shove anyone in their way, instead of saying “excuse me”. Paying for ONE check in bag should not be $95. Most airlines charge between $20-50 for the first bag. Also no snacks for a long flight."
Cons: "the delay starting in DC, followed by more delay on the tarmac in Reykjavik, and followed by long waiting for the bus to get paasengers to the airplane in Reykjavik"
Cons: "The seat I was in did not recline and the flight attendant was not able to assist me with moving to another seat. This was terrible considering it was a 7+ hour flight ..."
Pros: "It was the fastest route from Washington DC to Helsinki."
Cons: "Staff a bit cold (no pun intended). Aircraft are well maintained but old. Business class is not at all on par with the competition. It's called premium economy on every other airline. Outdoor disembarking and boarding in Iceland... Yes, it's true... Even with open gates at the airport. Contrary to the staff, passport control is in Keflavik... With the one hour layover... Expect to be stressed trying to make your connection. No partner airlines means no credit for using this airline. Overall... Unless I'm going to Iceland, I think I'll forego using this airline in the future. Rather be in another carrier's premium economy than their business class."
Pros: "Direct flight"
Cons: "There is only a serve of drink, headset need to pay"
Pros: "The plane was very nice and comfortable."
Cons: "The airline didn't serve any food. I'm a female at 5'7" and the leg room was a little tight"
Cons: "Flight was more than one hour late"
Pros: "I need a cheap flight and at the time that was my best bet. Didn't have a bad time but next time I will fly direct from the US."
Cons: "Seats were so so, leg room was barely substantial. Iceland is expensive even on a layover, thankfully it wasn't very long."
Pros: "Not a single movie was offered with captioning for those of us who hate ear buds or with hearing disabilities or who prefer to watch "quietly". Many of these have already been captioned elsewhere at another time so what's with not bringing to captions along?"
Pros: "I'm a European tour and booked a flight from Reykjavik to Amsterdam, I received an email to make an offer to upgrade and I quickly jumped at the chance. I received an email 2 days prior to departure that my offer was excepted and I would be upgraded to economy comfort. Economy comfort is between First Classe and economy and the cool thing about it is that you get treated as if he had a first class ticket. I had access to the lounge which was amazing, the spread out was wonderful he sat in the choices plentiful. Reykjavik is a small airport therefore it's a busy airport, what do you economy comfort I was able to use the saga class lane and I checked in less than five minutes whereas the regular lane was backed up. I was able to board along with first-class passengers and the lane was short which I love. Overall it was a great experience and Icelandair will make you a trip even better if you fly with them first class or economy comfort. I highly recommend them and I am definitely flying with them again."
Cons: "The breakfast menu was limited but since I had the economy comfort upgrade,it was free so I can't really complain since I had the economy comfort upgrade."
Cons: "Desk agent asked if we were willing to sit in exit row. We agreed. Seat assignment turned out to be next row forward so we were unable to recline for a 5 hour red-eye."
Pros: "I had no idea that no meal would be served on the flight. Ended up buying a salad that was so so. Not a wide selection. Missed on breakfast altogether on my next fligh. Wasn't asked if I wanted anything. Thought it was only coffee or tea."
Cons: "Good options and uncomfortable- no pillow provided or offered. Perhaps I should have asked?"
Pros: "Great service and comfort on this flight. Reykjavik airport is not comfortable at the gates--disorganized and nowhere to sit--but that's not Norwegian's fault. Good experience with Norwegian Air!"
Pros: "Good entertainment options and device charging."
Cons: "No meal. One drink."
Pros: "The Icelandair ground staff tried their best to deal with the impossible but the end result was still totally unacceptable. See below for details."
Cons: "Incompetent ground operations. Five departure delays and gate changes. 24 hour delay. Communications and customer service disaster."
Pros: "Staff on plane."
Cons: "Hardest and narrowest seats I've ever experienced. No complementary food served on transatlantic flight and the food offered for sale was unappealing and expensive. There was a problem with staff meeting the arriving plane to open the door and allow passengers to disembark. The wait was 15 minutes for someone to show up on each leg of the trip."
Pros: "There is good legroom, and hip room. Crew is very pleasant and react promptly. You have a nice entertainment system - if you remember your headphones."
Cons: "No food on a long flight - not even a bag of pretzels. If you forget headphones you have to buy them, whereas other airlines offer them for free."
Pros: "Boarding was organized and efficient. Made sense to do it from the rear of the plane forward, by rows. Flight attnendants courteous and very helpful. Pillow/blanket/multiple non-alcoholic beverage services. Limited but adequate movie/tv selection. I watched all the Icelandair Iceland travel specials instead--highly recommend. We were delayed 20 mins leaving as the incoming flight was late but we made up the time in the air. Minimal/unobtrusive cockpit announcements. Very nice red eye flight."
Pros: "I was the first one off the plane"
Cons: "The emergency door was in front of my seat. I couldn't sit without my knees hitting it or at an angle which is uncomfortable. I asked the flight attendants if I could I've and they said "no it's a different class". I paid for a seat on your airline and all I wanted was that seat but was given something Waltham was not what I paid for. Also, I had to hold my water bottle and book bc there was no seat back pocket. It was a miserable flight. Especially since the gentleman on the other side of the plane in front of the emerge door was able to move to one of the seats that, "was a different class". I guess just a different class for me??"
Cons: "I was surprised that we did not get a meal service, not even a little snack for a long hall, from D.C. to Iceland. The only service we had was the water. I probably won't fly with this airline again....Sorry."
Pros: "Seat is comfortable , nice blanket"
Cons: "Super old movie, no food include"
Pros: "Staff was friendly and accommodating, new flight was booked immediately after being cancelled"
Cons: "Our flight was cancelled, missing our 10+ layover in Iceland and trip to the blue lagoon. We missed arriving to Amsterdam for our friends birthday and ended up getting there the next day. The most dissappointing and quite frankly ridiculous part was that after being on hold for 2 hours Iceland air refused to upgrade our seats to first class after such a huge inconvenience. We boarded the plane and the entire first class portion of the flight empty!! This makes zero sense to me. Iceland air should seriously reconsider their upgrade policies. They would rather have first class be empty than make their customers happy! We were even willing to pay extra."
Pros: "Flight was cheapest option for a family of 6. We had mechanical issues prior to leaving DC and missed our connecting flight. Icelandair did a great job in putting us in a hotel and providing free transportation to and from the airport. Reykjavik is a beautiful city and we made the best of the layover. We plan to come back to Iceland for a longer visit to explore more."
Cons: "Next time I would plan for a stop over-- it seemed to run so smoothly that it must of happened often. We lost a day in Paris due to the delay which we were disappointed in and they did nothing for our lost hotel day that was paid for."
Cons: "No sign for business/economy at gate."
Pros: "Comfortable, clean, and affordable! Clever descriptions about the airline and Iceland, which was a great addition to the vibe. Would definitely fly with them again, and recommend. FYI - They save money by not serving meals on the flight, but that's not a loss."
Cons: "Loved it."
Cons: "Flight was almost an hour late departing IAD, and arrived too late in Reykjavik for us to make our connecting flight to Paris, which Icelandair did not hold at all for the many passengers who were connecting. We were sent to England, then connected with another airline after a four hour layover. Our arrival in Paris was 8 hours late, and our bags did not get to us at our hotel until four days later. This was poor customer service by Icelandair all around, that could have been avoided by holding the connecting flight for 45 minutes. It affected many passengers, not just us."
Pros: "International flight no food could not believe"
Cons: "Seats were smaller than other"
Pros: "The plane was new which meant new entertainment system and seats."
Cons: "It took over 30 minutes for our luggage to arrive on the conveyor belt."
Pros: "Exit row seating was comfortable with plenty of legroom."
Cons: "Delayed flight with no communication from boarding gate. Knew about delay from Kayak hours before we heard about it at the airport."
Cons: "We had an 8 hour layover due to missing our connection."
Pros: "Entertainment system"
Cons: "No food, beverage service very limited."
Cons: "Did not realize that free meals were not provided. The trip ended without eating for 9 hours, as no hot meals were offered."
Cons: "Plane time delayed 30 minutes and on top of that once they opened the gate there were still long waits and a shuttle that needed to be taken to plane. Plane was boarded and took off later than expected and landed at final destination later than expected. Overall, both flights included, it was a very painful first experience using iceland air."
Pros: "Crew was friendly, flight was good"
Cons: "The seats on our plane were the worst seats of my experience EVER. When you have to be seated for 5+ hours, some level of comfort is required. I could barely stand by the time we got to Iceland. NEVER again. I'm not usually picky but this was ridiculous"
Cons: "Lines and more lines. Little to no information to travelers. Reykjavik airport very disorganized."
Cons: "No food on either flight. First flight was 20 minutes late, which made our one-hour layover very stressful. We asked the Icelandair woman at the gate if our bags made it even though our layover was short and she seemed annoyed by the question, and said "Yes. All the time." Our bags did not make it, and it took an hour and a half after waiting for our nonexistent bags for 30 minutes to report them as missing, as there were two employees in the office for 30 people whose bags didn't make it."
