Food was good entertainment was mediocre flight was delayed about 1.5h

Pros: "Crew were very nice and accommodating. Chocolate always appreciated!"

Pros: "The crew was nice, the food was really good, the plane was clean, and they used reusable silverware and plates to avoid waste."
Pros: "Flight crew was on top of things. Flight was smooth and ontime."
Cons: "A bit cramped in the economy class. Could have been more room for the money we had to spend on tickets"

Cons: "Seat confort"
Pros: "Good food and beverage options. Many movie and television selections."
Cons: "The seats were too close especially when reclined. The lady next to me got into an argument 3 times with the man behind her and no one assisted the situation. The second security check needs a better signifier that it was done. It almost made me and another man miss our flight. Miserable attendants"
Pros: "Crew was very attentive, information from the cockpit was enough to let us know but not disruptive"
Cons: "Boarding was one long line that other passengers in the airport had to walk through. This was difficult for passengers with kids and those with needed special accommodations Ike wheelchairs, canes etc"
Cons: "Seats and leg space were uncomfortable, staff could have been friendlier and more presentable (cleaner appearance)"
Pros: "I thought my out flight with Lufthansa would be good but it was surpassed by the return flight with Swiss Based on my experience I believe Swiss should be a 5 star airline as well"

Pros: "787 is an excellent plane and I could sleep a little"

Pros: "The flight itself was very enjoyable. The only negative aspect was that the first leg of the flight was delayed long enough that I almost missed my connecting flight and my baggage was lost."
Cons: "The real reason for the negative review is a combination of the cost of this flight, loss of my baggage and poor service after the flight. I paid nearly $4,500 for an economy ticket from New York to New Delhi. The first leg of the flight, from New York to Zurich was delayed long enough that I made my connecting flight to Delhi within seconds of them closing the gate and as a result my baggage was lost. Once I got to Delhi I had to take a connecting flight to Goa and then drive an hour to my destination, where I was attending a good friend's wedding. All of my baggage was lost during transit by the airline, and unfortunately they never delivered by baggage to my hotel...so I was without formal clothes and normal clothes for the wedding for 4 days. The customer service line was no help, and the airline refused to deliver the baggage to me...the closest they would bring it was the Goa airport which was an hour and a half away."

Cons: "Boarding and sitting takes a bit of time."
Cons: "On ticket it said time between flights was 1hr 25min, but as soon as we got off the plane we had to RUN through Zurich airport, where 1000 other people were all trying to funnel down the single escalator to Passport Control, to get to our gate. Then we had to wait in another Passport Control. TERRIBLE and stressful. The actual flight was fine."
Pros: "Staff was gracious and accommodating for whatever we needed. It felt much better than typical economy class. It made the 8 hour plus flight quite manageable."
Pros: "Our of the 4 females I interacted with only Miishiie was helpful. The movies are a good selection. They were on time."
Cons: "I'm 6'2 and black. I asked if I could pay to upgrade to business class after viewing coach. They lied and said it was full when I could see empty seats. They bumped up a white female for free 3 hours later."

Pros: "seat too tight"

Cons: "Everything was very good."

Unfortunately this was operated by Delta which is nothing like Virgin.

Had a brillant flight from LAX and the lady that check us in at LAX on the vs6848 flight to Manchester was outstanding ! And deserves recognition! She was patient with when we were paniced about us been late and havibg five chikdren under five...she kept us clam... reassured us and booked our bags..ensure my elderly mother had assistance and also waited for my husband who had gone to the toilet and jad got himself lost in the airport. We made it to the plan on time... please fjnd that lady as I really want her to be recognized The plane was of high standard and we got the seats thats worked well with our large family My email is lubanzu.ssbs@yahoo.co.uk if you need more information.

More veggie options. Or something healthier.

Cons: "Plane was full"
Pros: "The crew were all excellent"
Cons: "Dinner choice was poor. Starter was just a few salad leaves."
Pros: "Excellent service!"
Pros: "Boarding process was very efficient and crew was very pleasant and helpful. Seats were reasonable for economy."
Cons: "Meals were very small but tasty. Movie options were random but enough to keep you occupied."
Cons: "at last minute itinerary was changed.. instead of routing through Brisbane, was now routed through Sydney. Flight from Sydney to LAX was delayed by 4 hours, then missed flight LAX to LAS... overall long delayed arrival. Checked the route through Brisbane, and those flights we're all there, departed and landed all on-time... so wondering what the reason was for the change of the itinerary without a cause (no cancel or delayed flights through Brisbane)"
Pros: "Virgin Atlantic offers good service at a reasonable price to/from the US to London. Good food service and unbelieveable number of movies and entertainment to choose from."
Cons: "The seating and leg room in economy classic were inadequate. We felt way too confined in our seats and the leg room was a joke. I am only 6' tall and this was unacceptable. We will try to upgrade for the return trip."
Pros: "Friendly staff, so much food/snacks were offered. Good movies available."
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Top glass airline"
Cons: "I lake food and good service crew"
Pros: "Service, meals, friendly and attentive FAs"
Pros: "Although we were badly delayed the cabin service was excellent in every way. Good meal , cheerful staff and well turned out."
Cons: "I did not like the fact that my seat was between 2 small children that belonged to a family sitting behind me .It was ridiculous to put a stranger on a 10 hour flight with a 3yrar old on one side and a 5 year old on the other"
Pros: "Great, friendly, professional crew, clean comfortable plane. Loved that full dinner and baggage and wine was included in an economy class overnight from DC to London as well as breakfast. Best flight in a long time, will definitely fly again."
Cons: "the tv screen's touch screen capabilities could use an upgrade, it was a hassle to navigate, not very sensitive to touch."
Cons: "The plane seemed to be a little bit old, especially entertaining equipment"
Cons: "Staff"
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: "Food and entertainment was excellent"
Cons: "Staff seemed a bit stressed and busy but very efficient"
Pros: "Nothing. The whole experience was horrible."
Cons: "I didn't make it to Siem Reap because the first leg of the trip from IAD to London was cancelled by Virgin Atlantic after it was fully boarded. The excuse was that a flight attendant had food poisoning and was unable to fly and so the entire flight was cancelled. The Virgin team seemed unconcerned and showed NO sense of urgency to try and get people rebooked. Their solution was to rebook everyone on an evening flight the next day. If a passenger was only going to London, that was probably fine. But for people with connecting flights -- or like me with multiple connecting flights -- that wasn't acceptable."
Pros: "I loved how the airline crew were very accommodating. This was an awesome experience. A+++"
Cons: "I have no complaints."
Cons: "My flight was cancelled due to technical problems! Hope to be on another flight today as I missed my connecting flights too!!"
Cons: "They switched my gate 5 times and lost my baggage."

Cons: "Very small leg room"
Pros: "Smooth flight"
Cons: "My economy window seat was just too cramped for a big guy on a nine hour flight"
Pros: "The Business - was The Business! Loved it."
Pros: "I wish I knew the name of the crew on this flight so that credit is given where it's due. A female steward was incredibly kind to me. She allowed me space to cry in the back of the aircraft, and also gave me her personal tissues. Her care is the only reason I'd give this flight an 'okay.'"
Cons: "Unlike the incredibly kind woman, another woman on the crew was incredibly rude to me and to other passengers on the plane. She was very obviously annoyed with nearly everything on that flight. The restrooms were beyond disgusting. I have never flown on a flight with a restroom that awful; it smelled horrible and was filthy. It was reminiscent of a portable outhouse, no exaggeration. The pillow on my seat had makeup on it."
Cons: "Seat cushion r not soft comfortable enough. R hard. Hard My butt"
Pros: "1st class, what's not to like?"
Pros: "Nothing because I was given a middle seat"
Cons: "6'4 and I get a middle seat.."

Pros: "The crew where very attentive and helpful."
Cons: "The ticket agent was anal about 1-2 kgs for our checked luggage and even weighed our carry on luggage...which no agent had done on our entire trip from atlanta to melb. Seemed pointless and a hassle for 1-2 kgs."
Pros: "On time, everything normal."
Cons: "Seat space so small that my knees were up against the next seat, even without it tilting back."
Pros: "The flight from Sydney to LA was enjoyable"
Cons: "I was very disappointed that even though I booked through Virgin Australia when their partner Delta didn't get us to LA on time from Minneapolis, Virgin Australia said its Deltas fault, talk to them. They were not going to help."
Pros: "First off,the staff is awesome. From the check in people to the flight attendants .... The entertainment was up to date and the safety video was awesome.. Great conditions for economy class.good leg room...I give them a 5 star rating ... I only wish they would do more flights to other countries overseas ..."
Cons: "I can't think of anything I didn't like"
Cons: "Crew"
Pros: "Audrey agent at the counter at Heathrow was amazing assisted me in getting my bags located and transfer from air malta to vigin"
Cons: "Watch out for checked baggage fees on short haul international flights. If you buy their saver fare, VA charges you $130 to check a bag at the check-in counter. Highway robbery in my opinion! Make sure you add a bag beforehand. Corporate greed at its worst."
Pros: "Easy check in and boarding."
Cons: "Uncomfortable seats and poor food."
Pros: "Was a comfy flight thanks to not having anyone sitting next to me. If someone wouldve been next to me it wouldnt have been as nice because the seats are too bunched for international travel."
Cons: "My seat wouldnt recline properly. There were limited food options for non pork eaters. No outlets for power. How can you operate an international flight with nothing provided for those who need to charge their devices after some time. Not a smart design move."
Pros: "It was a great experince we enjoy the flight other than the delay on the luggage"
Cons: "one of my luggage was lost and delayed for 2hrs. We waited at the Airport for the luggage to arrive."
Pros: "Professionalism value of service"

Pros: "Pleasant, helpful staff at check-in and on flight"
Pros: "No hay variedad en el entretenimiento."
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "Boarding was from front to back and soooooo slow. The connection in Bogotá was impossible since it took almost 2 hours to go through immigration. What a nightmare. After missing our connection, the Avianca Special Services associate wasn’t rude and non-communicative, and preferred to text her friends instead of attending to us."
Cons: "Excellent"
Pros: "No"
Cons: "The time"
Pros: "Everything I liked"
Pros: "Excelente atención del personal de vuelo. Gracias."
Cons: "La comida. Gracias."
Pros: "crew was wonderful but we sat on the runway the whole day and then they cancelled the flight"
Pros: "flight attendants were attentive"
Cons: "The flight attendants could have smiled more"
Pros: "Es impresionante lo que ha desmejorado Avianca en su clase ejecutiva. Un vuelo de más de 5 horas y la silla no reclina sino solo un poco y no hay donde apoyar los pies. La comida estuvo mala."
Cons: "Tienen que mejorar su servicio en ejecutiva y si les toca usar ese avión mejorar la comodidad de las sillas."
Pros: "Cada ves que viajo en Avianca , estoy viendo y sintiendo un detrimento en la atención así como en la comodidad de los aviones. Viaje de Washington a Bogotá en busines, y la incomodidad de el avión es desesperante. Q pasa AVIANCA? Acaso se va a acabar nuestra empresa colombiana q ha sido el org"
Pros: "For a several hours of flying the seat we’re fine"
Cons: "The crew service was very poor!"
Cons: "More new movies."
Pros: "La atención"

Pros: "I did not like anything about the flight"

Cons: "The temperature during the flight was to hot Flight attendance were not friendly which is unusual for Avianca"
Pros: "Attentive service"
Cons: "Food sucks,"
Pros: "Only the price of the ticket."
Cons: "Lady at check in didn't provide proper "tag" for stroller. No consideration while traveling with kids, I was accepted to board with the last group."
Pros: "Good entertainment and food."
Cons: "The flight was quite delayed, and also had to wait a while once landed. Not much leg space."
Cons: "The Kayak/ Avianca site does not allow one to input TSA Pre info. Although I had printed myh boarding pass online ahead of time, i had to wait in a long long line at the check in counter to get an updated boarding pass with TSA Pre on it. Not happy!"
Pros: "Delayed my trip 10 hours"
Pros: "Flight attendants were friendly food was good"
Cons: "Hard to understand announcements and directions"
Pros: "Excellent seating, entertainment, and service."
Cons: "Seat was ahead of the emergency row so it didn’t recline. Was super uncomfortable and it would have been nice to get a heads up that the seats wouldn’t go down."
Cons: "Check in at Dulles was chaos, even though we had completed online check in and just needed to do our luggage drop. I am pregnant and was carrying a 2 y/o toddler and had no preferential/priority treatment. Though we arrived 2+ hours before our departure, we only just made our flight. Ground crew were unfamiliar with Brazilian laws on entry for citizens with expired passports. Our bags never left DC and we received them over 72 hours later in Sao Paulo, after much confusion. We were not offered any means of compensation for this inconvenience."
Cons: "The flight was delayed for more than an hour at Dulles. When we arrived in Bogota, at 9:40 we had time to catch the connecting flight to Montevideo which was scheduled to leave at 10:20pm.... but instead we stayed in the tarmac without moving for over 45 minutes. There were over 30 passengers that were to take that connecting flight, so the airline had plenty of reasons to wait for us. Instead the airline, AVIANCA, chose to leave all of us stranded in Bogota for 24 hours. We will have all type of problems because of this we had hotel reservations as well as car rental reservations that may be lost because we didn't showed up. By the way according to one of the passengers whose husband travelled on the same flight the day before. The same thing happened to him 1 day earlier."
Cons: "Avianca Airlines down loaded my two check in bags in Bobota, Columbia and left them behind. Still waiting for the bags to arrive in London. Very inconvenient."
Cons: "Seats were pretty uncomfortable on both flights for such a duration... The layover/transfer in Bogota was chaotic, and rushed. My luggage did not make it to the final destination, so I am here with none of my belongings :("
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Delayed 3 hours lost conection to Istanbul and change the business for economy in the last fly"
Pros: "Overall this is one of the best airlines I often travel with. Their cost is economic compared to the other airlines flying and their customer service attention is one of the best. They always have food and drinks available to people and obviously have a priority when it comes to children. Their seats in economy are somewhat spacious and international flights always have good entertainment with their touch screen. You can listen to music, watch movies and even TV shows without any extra cost."
Pros: "Flight on time"
Cons: "Easy boarding"
Pros: "Can't beat all the free amenities this airline offers that the big brand airlines charge for."
Pros: "Flight attendants were great!"

Cons: "No comment"
Pros: "Nice Avianca flight crews and ground crews on all three flights. All flights on time. All seats had good leg room. Soft landings."
Cons: "I didn't know where I should go after Customs in Sao Paulo, Brazil. I was connecting to a domestic flight to Goiania, Brazil, so I needed to drop off my checked bag somewhere to be sent to the plane's cargo. I went to the check-in desk for Avianca, and then they pointed me to the nearby bag drop-off area, which had a 45-minute line. The time wasn't too important for me in that I made it to boarding 25 minutes before the flight--the part that would have been better would be to have on the itinerary that I go to the Avianca check-in/bag drop-off area in Terminal 2 after Customs."
Cons: "The Service of The tripulation they didnt give US a greeting at The begining of The flights not even at The end of The fligth it was my first flight in avianca and The last because i never met The captian he never intruduced him self"
Pros: "The flights wers on time"
Pros: "Staff was friendly"
Cons: "Seats were clunky, I couldn't recline my seat during a 10 hours night flight."
Pros: "Great trip. Boarding was efficient. Small plan for a long trip. Seat was comfortable, but on an A319 for a 5 hour trip is stretching it. Either way the crew was great and the service was good."
Pros: "To do the right maintenance to the plane because I couldn't use the earphones. The plug of the previous earphones was broken and a piece of it was inside the hole."
Cons: "Lack of supervision, because I had: (i) long delays to receive my bags with not explanation at the begining. Later on the "supervisor" told us that some of the bags were left on the road and we had to wait until a belt was available and (ii) in the maintenance of the plane in regards with the seat equipment."
Pros: "The trip in general was great!"
Cons: "Getting the bags too way too long ; after a long flight, will be nice to get out of the airport faster."
Pros: "Your flight was the most comfortable coach flight I have ever taken. No other airline I've taken for as long as I can remember has provided the leg room and comfort that your airline provides for coach"
Pros: "Food, service and comfort"
Pros: "The service was good, the employees were so polite and helpful."

There was no special meal on board even though I spent hours on hold to request one!

Pros: "Great staff , amazing dinner, and the entertainment screen size was best"
Cons: "Seats could be a little bigger"
Cons: "Frankfurt connecting flights, security, and Passport control are terribly inefficient, with unclear guides to get passengers from B gates to A gates."
Pros: "Nice crew"
Cons: "Better food, some entertainment, better bathrooms"
Pros: "Na"
Cons: "Na"
Pros: "nothing"
Cons: "better accommodation of passangers"
Cons: "They told us there were no earbuds so recommended using our own. Our children had left theirs at home so they ran to get a $20 pair nearby. But the the plane DID have the buds; what we did not have were blankets — the crew said none were to be had."
Cons: "United Airline s***k. Flight was delayed 3 1/2 hrs and they don’t give a s**t you have a life. Never again UA!"
Pros: "I loved the Awesome Check in lady from United airlines, her name is Sandra and she is pure awesomeness. I also loved the air hostesses for the care they have given me from the time I set foot On the plane until I left."
Cons: "The attitude of the Lufthansa gate staff was anything but welcoming. Reaching the gate for the Lufthansa flight was greeted with my name shout from a distance, and my apologise for being late were met with shrugs! Not only that, but my 3 checked bags are still in at IAD, I didn’t receive in CAI!"
Pros: "The crew."
Cons: "The airplane arrived over 45 minutes late."
Pros: "Yes, everything was great"
Pros: "Efficient boarding, friendly crew, nice range of entertainment options."
Cons: "An economy seat is an economy seat ...."
Pros: "Very amazing"
Cons: "N/a"
Pros: "Baggage arrived with me. Upgraded to First Class because so many of those passengers got other flights the night before."
Cons: "Original 5 pm flight was cancelled because there was no Crew or plane, even though it’s a United hub. Though flight cancelled early, United could not get me home same day so provided hotel and meal. Next day flight scheduled 7:05 then 8 am, but even that time came and went without boarding. 15 hours delayed and no hurry getting the plane to depart at the stated time. Total lack of customer service and concern"
Cons: "I did not like the fact that the United flight I came in on was over a MILE of corridors away from the outgoing flight."
Pros: "Touch screen is sharp and responsive."
Cons: "Food is ok. Used to be better a few years ago when the cuisine had a Southest Asian fusion style."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "The flight left 19 minutes early, stranding 7 people who were connecting from New Orleans. We ran across the entire airport and made it to the gate before departure time. The employee at Lufthansa Senator lounge was nice enough to tell us that the crew must have felt like leaving early. She was very nonchalant about the whole issue. She also refused to assist us, and told us we needed to exit the airport and reenter through the ticketing counter. I upheld my end of the deal by reaching the gate in time. This situation needs to be rectified."
Cons: "We were unable to fly this trip."
Cons: "The last rows are too near from the toilets or perhaps they weren’t clean when we left Washington"
Pros: "I wasn't expecting free in-flight movies and meals, which were very welcome"
Pros: "Impecable service. Even worth flying through FRA."

Pros: "Restful flight"
Pros: "The in flight crew was great"
Cons: "I arrived a bit late to the airport. 5:15pm for a 6:05p for an international flight. I realize It is very late. I was delayed by donald trump protestors blocking the highway (not your fault). Dulles was a ghost town ( abnormally slow). All I had was carry-on. They said they closed the flight. They quoted me at $1800 for a one way ticket directly from Lufthansa. The original round trip was $900. I declined, sat down for 15 min booked another Lufthansa flight online for $800, checked in and was through security by 5:50. Just in time for my original flights last call. I could have made it easily. Boooo Lufthansa booo."
Pros: "The crew was super friendly and caring. The food was great. Very enjoyable trip!!"
Cons: "Seats on airplane from Frankfort to Cairo"
Pros: "Flight attendants, food, drinks and space."
Pros: "the two older female stewards spoke slow enough so I could understand. The customer service rep in the lobby was always friendly, knowlegeable and able to help me. For example, I did not know, when boarding, if we had to show our passports, but I asked him and we did not. I did not grasp the five levels of boarding he mentioned. I knew our group was not handicapped and we were economy, but I did not really know if we were group 4 or 5 to board."
Cons: "There was one female steward who made me take my carry on bag from the upper deck and store it below my seat so another lady's much, much larger bag would fit. Her bag was so large, I can't believe it met the standards. On the other hand, this procedure may be the way things work out,for the good of everyone, but it came as a surprise to me. To accomplish the task, she even asked another female to move her carry on from the rack above her to another several rows down. This lady's hair was too big for such a small plane. She talked way too fast in the first monologue. The plane seemed cheap and the sub airline had an air outlet that would not turn off and leaked with water mist. There was an air conditioner that also had a water vapor leak overhead, which my son said was a 'strip' which he could not control. We were seating in the back row. We noticed the plane was operated by Mesa airlines and the plane was assembled in Brazil, giving me a feeling of excessive cost cutting. Also, the pilot had an accent that sort of added to the 'Brazil' thing that he was not a native English speaker. However, he had a good landing at Atlanta near midnight. I did not feel I was on a real 'United' Airlines flight."
Pros: "Smooth flight"
Cons: "When the lufthanza gate agents saw us running to catch the flight they ran into the jetway to avoid us instead of holding the plane. We waited for 5 minutes and watched the plane back out from the jetway. Their ignorance and 5 minutes caused us to miss the wedding we were flying to Italy to attend. Ridiculous!"
Pros: "Food was actually pretty good, and was plentiful. Comfortable seating."
Cons: "I don't think my tv worked."
Pros: "The flight was delayed two hours. I flew them 10 years ago and thought their seervice rivaled the Asian airlines. Now their service and seat comfort is near the cellar dwellars. The premium coach seat I paid extra for was the narrowest coach seat I have ever had the misfortune to sit in. I am a small man. 5'*8" 165lbs. The normal sized man next to me and I had to sit with our elbows pinned to our ribs. Eight hours of hell. I also had a totally irritating woman from syria behind me. She pushed and banged on my seat back the entire 8 hours. She had to have her loud mouth yapping most of the flight. That was the worse experience I have had flying. Also the attendents didnt care about me. I had to ask for tea. Had to ask three times as they were waalking off"
Cons: "The flight was delayed 2 hours. The seat was tiny , cramped and uncomfortable. I travel a lot. This is the first negative review I have written in 55 years of flying."
Pros: "The agent at the counter was very very helpful and accommodated us to an earlier flight. That saved us lot of time."
Pros: "Fast boarding, on time"
Cons: "Too cold in plane, announcements too loud"
Pros: "Good flight good staff. Captain explained the route which is nice."
Cons: "No negatives"
Pros: "The food and the entertainment were excellent, staff also worked very well, and the airplane appeared well cleaned and maintained"
Cons: "The economy seats are too close to each other to be comfortable for extended periods of time (back to front ways - side space is reasonable)."
Pros: "I fly regularly between Germany and USA. Would rate this flight as the second best flight in recent years. Small details can make a difference."
Cons: "The breakfast that was served was not great. Blueberry muffin super sweet and canola bar with raisins.none odds which i would ever pick if I had any choice."
Pros: "I enjoyed the attentiveness of the staff"
Cons: "No issues."
Pros: "The plane stewardesses were actually really efficient (German style). Because of being on the waiting list to get on the plane I couldn't get a seat next to my partner so they did the biggest math exercise to put us together. Props to them"
Cons: "The flight overbooked (I still don't understand this concept, since is basically selling twice the same seat, right? Is that even legal?) Also the system was down, so no check-in online = the biggest line at the airport, it took me more than 1 hour to check-in and drop my luggage, all to get there and the ground force lady (the rudest person alive) tell me that I had no seat available, that she was going to put me on the waiting list... WHAT? I bought my ticket already, waiting list? Well, to say that I highly doubt that I'll book with Lufthansa again."
Pros: "Nothing to like since it was cancelled"
Cons: "This was a very long day and when we were told the flight was cancelled and we should rebook there were 350 people being handled by 3 airline personnel and no organization or info was available to all of us in line. It took over an hour to get to talk with someone and then we had to wait for another half hour before we could get our voucher for a room and breakfast after having no dinner! Really bad, but the next day we had an easy flight, just got to our destination late and missed several tours we had booked."
Pros: "great and pleasant service, caring and helpful, frequently offered beverages, delicious vegan option, great movies selection, not much turbulence, overall like Lufthansa the best: reliable, on time,"
Pros: "Lots of carry on space"
Cons: "I expect cabin crew to assist me with my luggage. They were telling me to do it myself"
Pros: "Everything else was fine."
Cons: "I had paid for comfort seats ($140) extra. When I checked in at gate I was given another seat assignment (without explanation). It turned out to not be comfort seat, in fact it was the last row in the airplane. Had to get eh gate agent back, which was not fast. She said flight was full and a family had been spread out. I understand, but you can't just bump me from a paid and selected seat to a standard seat, especially on transatlantic flight after paying $140 extra. There was no apology. She went back to gate and little while later came back with a comfort seat. Some people seem not to have shown up as the seat next to me stayed open as well. It was very poorly handled."
Pros: "Late departure, full flight but good overall."
Pros: "The ice cream dessert"
Cons: "Old fashioned entertainment systems where you can't choose when you want to watch something you have to start watching at the same time as everyone. Flight advertised as Lufthansa was United both ways, there is a big difference between the service in both. United makes you pay to choose your seat like a budget carrier so everyone is angry about the seat they're in. Won't be flying them again if possible!"
Pros: "that there was a water and a blanket on each seat!"
Cons: "I thought there was free alcohol on international flights. that you were not allowed to use the given blanket until after take off."
Pros: "Good airline"
Cons: "Noise in aircraft. Transit time between flights was too short."
Pros: "Good boarding process and crew today."
Cons: "Plane was delayed and connection in Copenhagen was missed, resulting in a five-hour delay overall."
Cons: "Luggage fee were outrageous."
Cons: "Seats are too small in economy to be comfortable. Boarding was unclear and confusing, mainly because I didn't have a boarding group on my boarding pass."
Pros: "N/A"
Cons: "I was unable to make it to copenhagen due to missing my connection"
Pros: "The airplane was modern and well kept. The crew were attentive and kind."
Cons: "Nothing - our flight out was great!"
Pros: "Overall, an incredible experience!!!"
Cons: "The food was excellent"
Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "Everything. Our flight was delayed from our departing city because the plane was leaking water on the floor and they had to send in a special cleaning crew to try to stop it. We were not given the seats we pre picked months before when buying the ticket. The ac was broken for the first half of the flight. Then, we missed our connecting flight because of the first delay. Once we got onto a new connecting flight, it was also delayed and once again, we missed our last connecting flight and are not making it to our final destination today."
Pros: "Nice staff, comfortable seats with good room, complimentary beverages with refills offered."
Cons: "Late leaving, when boarding in CPH had to wait in extremely hot area once past the desk where our boarding passes were scanned and then the area where we had to queue just prior to boarding the plane was glass and therefore extremely hot. The worst issue was that there was one family with extremely loud children with the parents doing nothing. I saw a steward way up the plane looking down at them at one stage while serving another passenger but she did nothing. I like children but this was constant with the father actually encouraging the children to make more noise once he realised that other passengers were annoyed. There were plenty of other children on the plane who were behaving. Although SAS staff were aware of this they did nothing to ensure the comfort of the other passengers. One friend of mine stood for about 40 minutes at the back of the plane and another for about 20 minutes to get away from this constant noise as it was so loud and persistent. I had to listen to music to block it out.SAS staff should have intervened because this was very loud and as I have said constant i.e. every few seconds for most of the flight."
Pros: "Food was okay. Very smooth landing"
Cons: "Crew. One of the flight attendants was unfriendly and short when asked about food options. None of them were approachable."
Pros: "Great flight on SAS"
Cons: "Very good food and outstanding choice of movies as entertainment."
Cons: "Tiny, hard, uncomfortable seats and cramped conditions, just about the worst 8 hours in my life"
Pros: "Crew was friendly and professsional. Breakfast was good , as well as the selection of movies."
Cons: "Apparently SAS is not part of the TSA network, so I was unable to use my Global Entry membership to get TSA Pre-Check. Non-alcoholic beverage service was meager (one beverage only)."
Pros: "Everything was nice and smooth. Nice comfort and smooth flight, arriving slightly before the time"
Pros: "Friendly service. No problem with moving to open seats to stretch out."
Cons: "Even though it was an older plane, it was still comfortable."
Pros: "Plane was fine and it arrived on time."
Cons: "Main meal was awful. Crew was hard to find. Also water or juice was not served on flight after the meal (for hydration)."
Pros: "I was running late to my flight, and I found the SAS customer service line exceptionally helpful in helping me make the right decisions regarding how best to deal with the risk of missing my flight. In the end, I made my flight in time, but I found customer service critical in making the best decisions regarding my pre-flight transportation. Additionally, the flight was smooth and enjoyable."
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "The crew was so amazing and friendly!!"
Cons: "Should at least serve some water"
Pros: "Seats are more comfortable than those of many other airlines."
Cons: "Normally, I am not picky regarding airline food. In SAS's economy or "Go" class, there is no choice of food. I can think of plenty of dishes that would be appealing to many people. Yet the meal that was served, beef stew, posed a problem as I don't eat red meet. Since many people also do not eat beef due to religious beliefs, I am appalled by SAS's decision to only serve this dish to its economy class passengers. As I ordered my ticket through Kayak, I didn't have the option to request a special diet, nor did I think to do so as airlines generally do not serve serve a beef dish as their one and only."
Pros: "Power plugs at all seats"
Cons: "2+ hrs late on departure, could not confirm follow on connecting flight. Could not select seats online. Airbus aircraft ventilation is weak. Movie selection was inadequate. No "free" alcohol and high prices. Pay WiFi in economy but "free" everywhere else"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Tried THREE hours to get a phone picked up to cancel my flight the day before this scheduled flight. My friends booked with Expedia the exact itinerary and were able to reach a human and we're told that SAS always reimburses for cancellations. I finally emailed vayamas/kayak to cancel and 5 days later received a reply that there was no cancellation refund. Apparently Kayak provides a no communication/no refund policy. My travel companion had the opposite experience with Expedia."
Pros: "Good leg room. Tasty meals. A good variety of entertainment options."
Pros: "Great service, on time departures and arrivals. Two meals on the trans Atlantic portion of our trip."
Pros: "Boarding was easy, I'm a Star Alliance Gold member so was able to get on board first. There were significant delays leaving Dulles and our connection was tight, but SAS held the flight so I give them props for that."
Cons: "The crew was grumpy and unhelpful, but I can usually overlook that. What really got me was this: YOU HAVE TO PAY FOR BEER & WINE ON THIS INTERNATIONAL FLIGHT! Never in my 25 years of international travel have I seen this from a mainstream carrier. For this fact alone, I will never fly this airline again. You also have to pay to pick your seats in advance."
Pros: "service was good"
Cons: "The plane was full. Sets in economy were very small."
Pros: "The entertainment system was very good. The crew were all efficient and courteous, with the exception of one crew member who was rather curt."
Cons: "Our plane arrived at IAD late due to a minor mechanical that was repaired at its previous destination. Consequently, we departed IAD almost two hours late, causing us to miss our connection in Copenhagen. Norwegian Air had a flight leaving shortly from Copenhagen to Rome, but the transfer agent told us SAS "does not re-book with Norwegian." Instead we were assigned to two more flights, one to Brussels, and another from Brussels to Rome. We arrived in Rome around 17:00 rather than 10:35 as scheduled, losing a full day of sight-seeing."
Pros: "I had a row to myself because I was a 1st class ticket holder but they didn't actually have 1st class seating."
Cons: "Smaller than average seat size."
Pros: "Technically, since the first leg of my flight was changed I no longer flew this route, but it was through the same airlines and they fixed my issues no problem."
Pros: "Timely or even earlier arrival. Generally, very good experience"
Cons: "NA"
Cons: "Delay after delay. Screaming kid"
Cons: "In-flight entertainment did not work, veggie meal I ordered was not there, and when I asked if I could have one of the extra business class meals, I was told no. I further asked if I could just have some chips from the snack basket and that was met with a death glare from the female flight attendant. All in all, the flight attendants were rude and unwilling to accept any ownership in the poor conditions of this 9 hour flight."
Pros: "Modern plane, great entertainment system"
Cons: "Paying for booze, vegetarian breakfast is awful."
Cons: "Small and tight seats."
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "Zero leg room, no overhead compartment space. Pinned to the wall in my window seat by an over weight Swedish man sitting beside me. Horrible flight !!!"
Cons: "The plane was very old and not maintained well, dirty and not clean from the previous flights"
Pros: "The choice of movies and tv shows was excellent. Also picture on tv was very good."
Cons: "Seat was not very comfortable."
Pros: "Clean, comfortable plane."
Cons: "No free alcohol. Limited food options."
Cons: "Seats are allowed to recline to far. When you are sitting behind someone who has reclined their seat you have no room"
Pros: "The crew was very kind!"
Cons: "Tiny seats and no free drinks on an international flight....whats up with that?"
Pros: "Great aircraft, good food, awesome crew, very comfortable seats, the entertainment was really good. Overall super pleased. Hopefully it'll be the same on our return back to DC"
Cons: "Too much meat in meals."
Pros: "Flight was fine, service good, and our seat choice excellent."
Cons: "We left an iPad on board in Copenhagen and found that there was no way to inform SAS!"
Cons: "sas online seat selection and checkin, computer crashed"
Cons: "No individual seat control of airflow. The plane was very warm and there were no vents at each seat."
Pros: "Attendants allowed any standing to ease weary legs as long as it was out of the way."
Pros: "Old airplanes, no cellphone chargers, my monitor didn't work at all so they gave me an Iphad......"
Cons: "Old airplanes, you have to pay for alcohol...."
Cons: "I was bumped off. So I liked nothing about that SAS flight."
