Pros: "The cabin was to warm"
Cons: "The cabin was to warm"
Pros: "Crew was great."
Cons: "Flight didn’t leave Atlanta until after 8pm. Delta couldn’t/wouldn’t do anything to help with replacement flights to Madrid despite we were supposed to have 3 1/2 hours layover and had less than zero (the flight out left before the flight into Zurich was deplaned."
Pros: "Great seat easy flight. The food always seem to be the same. I wish they would change it up every once in a while. I've been on this flight 14 times this year and its always exactly the same.."
Cons: "The gate was under construction in Seattle, and it was impossible to hear the gate agents."
Pros: "Food, service and entertainment"
Cons: "Entry into the aircraft was a bit chaotic"
Pros: "absolutely nothing"
Cons: "The crew! So slow! Not helpful with your questions/request and the attitude! What on earth! Awful customer service!"
Cons: "Too many interruptions on the inflight entertainment."
Pros: "Loved the swift checking in at Seatac, being picked out of the Special check-in line, tended to by a Ndeye, smooth all the way through to the gate. Also liked that the plane's arrival at Schiphol was only 30 minutes later than initial ETA after long delay at Seatac. Also liked the many snacks."
Cons: "Prolonged delay of flight departure. Choices of entertainment, especially movies."
Cons: "Old cramped untidy and limited drink service"
Pros: "Good food, excellent service"
Cons: "Seats did not have enough storage."
Cons: "Seats a bit cramped"
Cons: "The fact they wasted two days of my trip with my son travelling from the U.S. to China because they didn't know about transit visa regulations. And so far they offered a 75 dollar voucher for participating merchants. Unacceptable"
Pros: "Crew was excellent everything served was of great quality, all the amenities were solid and flight was comfortable and on time."
Cons: "The only complaint was the extreme use of air conditioning that made it a necessity to use many blankets to keep warm from freezing."
Pros: "They have the flight very well planned out, you get frequent drnks and food initially and then they turn the lights out for a good amount of time so that people can rest. Then, they come by again before landing with more drinks and a snack. Very well coordinated."
Cons: "Really, my only complaint is that after leaving Atlanta ~ 4 pm,,you arrive in Europe at 8 am. The first day is very difficult to adjust to. I would much rather arrive in Europe at night, and get to rest for a night before starting."
Pros: "Wifi for entertainment worked well"
Cons: "No longer have entertainment on back of seats"
Cons: "*Again, my first choice of main off the menu, in Delta One, had run out. *Not a fan of the Delta One seats."
Pros: "Getting to China, albeit two days late."
Cons: "The fact that the lack of knowledge regarding international travel visas by the counter staff and supervisor meant that two days of the vacation were lost. Upon arrival in China the 144 hour travel visa was granted with no problem within minutes, but the U.S. staff was completely befuddled by the possibility. The interrogation was completely stressful and resulted in a reschedule of the original flight and during the second attempt at flying even an email from the U.S. consulate with a link to the Shanghai/Chinese government immigration site was deemed "not official enough". i will be expecting proper compensation. I was once given an $850 travel voucher for voluntarily giving up my seat, and was flown first class to Hawaii, given 4 star accomodation and then flown first class on to China within 48 hours. This was an involuntary bump from our chosen flight time, all because of a lack of knowledge about current visa regulations and international law on the part of the check in staff. We have been loyal Delta users for over 15 years, and this was the biggest blunder ever. Also humiliating and extremely frustrating, stressful and a big problem with fulfilling our travel plans between son and father."
Pros: "The entertainment system had a wide selection of good movies to watch."
Cons: "The seat was busted and could barely recline at all."
Pros: "Great staff, polite and helpful"
Cons: "Small seats"
Pros: "Very attentative."
Cons: "Aircraft was smelling bad! Hygiene is the key"
Pros: "Helpful staff. Never felt rushed if I had a question. The special meal (VLML) was excellent. Tasty, filling and nutritious Plenty of foot room in economy."
Pros: "Nice Pajamas. Individual window seat. Decent food."
Cons: "Seat ptich could be/should be - wider. Snacks can be better and have better option.. ( only Apple for a fruit? Gimme a break)"
Pros: "Nothing. Delta sucks!"
Cons: "Poor management prior boarding"
Pros: "The movies."
Cons: "Horrible food and Very very uncomfortable seats. Absolutely NO leg room. One of these days Delta is going to be sued for deep vein thrombosis (blood clot)."
Cons: "Crew forget to feed quarter of passenger, and did it after reminder from passenger. No movies with Russian translation or titles. Flight arrived at Amsterdam 50 min later, and we missed our direct flight to Kiev"
Pros: "Economy seats are comfortable. I wasn't compressed in any way sitting in a window seat. Delta is my go-to airline. Not always the least expensive, but it's usually a pleasant trip."
Cons: "I was disappointed to be overcrowded in my seat. I sat next to a man who was too large to position the arm rest between us down. And as such, he took up about 1/3 of my seat. It was a really cramped flight and although I was polite, it's still very frustrating to pay for a seat, but only get access to 2/3 of it. I am 6'1, so every inch of my seat is typically used. It would be nice if there was a way to ensure this didn't happen. If people need more than 1 seat, they should be required to pay for more than one seat, and not 'steal' my space. Overall bad Delta experience. Sara"
Cons: "Must have been an older Delta jet. It had no entertainment. The wifi was poor."
Cons: "Missed original connection, booked on a three hour later flight that was delayed another hour, then three hours. Finally switched to Alaska 2 hours prior to departure. Was assured our bags would be on Alaska flight. They weren't. One eventually showed up in Spokane at 2 a.m. on a Delta flight the other on a separate Alaska flight at 3 a.m."
Cons: "Not enough sitting space felt very cramped"
Pros: "Crew was very helpful."
Cons: "This flight was delayed 5+ hours past its scheduled 12:15 departure due to mechanical issues with the plane. Delta was only able to offer a $50 travel voucher for this huge inconvenience."
Pros: "Finally, a free movie! Now, whoever picks the movie needs to do a better job, but atleast it was something! Service was Excellent, first pass with snack and drink carts, then they came through with coffee, and again with water! Now, that's service! Great job! Very friendly staff."
Cons: "Bathrooms, once again... disgusting. Urine on the floor, smelled awful. Tiny bathrooms, only 1 up front"
Cons: "Boarding was 30 minutes late."
Cons: "I was surrounded by a basketball team. They all have terrible breath. I know that because they kept talking to each other and I was in the middle (literally) of it all. Thanks Delta airlines!"
Pros: "The gate agents were friendly and made the boarding process quick."
Cons: "This was my connecting flight, and also left late. I can't really rate the crew on either flight, because I didn't see them. It's also impossible for me to rate the food/beverage service, because there was none. I spent over 3 hours on planes, and no beverage service was provided. If you have connecting flights, are flying for business, or don't pack your own refreshments assuming that something standard services will be, well, standard, Delta is probably not who you want to fly with. I work in the industry and sm usually not this brutally honest, but the whole trip was pretty disappointing."
Pros: "Nothing really."
Cons: "Seats are tiny! I'm 6' 3", and those seats are horrible!! So small!"
Pros: "Overall, the flight was good. It actually wasn't a Delta flight but an Alaska Airlines flight."
Cons: "The aircraft was new model 737-800, very nice! Except the seats are a bit hard. Not good for a 5 hour flight. What really made me angry is I paid for a Delta flight. What difference does it make!? On long Delta flights, you get a meal (you pay for it in the cost of your ticket), but I was put on an Alaska Airlines flight where the meals are $7.50! I think that if Delta puts you on an affiliated airline, they should pick up the tab for the meal. Entertainment is via your smartphone. Don't have a smartphone, no problem, cough up $10 for a 2 bit tablet to watch a movie!"
Pros: "I fly several times a year. I usually fly Southwest, I've never been happy with my experience with them. Delta has great customer service that makes me feel that I"m important to them. The flight attendants are very friendly, helpful, and genuine. It"s a nice added touch when the pilot stands there and greets the passangers. If I have a choice, I will never fly with any other airlines."
Cons: "extremely cramped and me knees were in the back of the next seat, (I'm 6'1")."
Pros: "On time. Came around with water often."
Cons: "Just said we were being served a meal on my ticket and we didn't get one. Probably just as well since it was a turbulent take off and landing :-)"
Cons: "Never got to fly it. The prior flight was so delayed I missed it."
Cons: "Sat in very back and seats didn't recline"
Cons: "It was good enough."
Pros: "In general, everything was ok aboard the plane."

Cons: "Leg room"
Cons: "Boarding from bus and no aero bridge"
Pros: "Comfortable seats, decent food and was left alone to sleep after a long day."
Cons: "Didn’t like that I missed original flight by minutes due to chaos of the airport and resolving the issue took about an hour but did like that I was rebooked on the next available flight for no extra charge and the attendant seemed sympathetic to my plight. A simple but important detail."
Cons: "Perdieron las maletas"
Pros: "Im stuck in London due to flight delays. I will never book with kayak again. I am so fed up with travel ticket i booked with kayak"

Pros: "Everything was on time"

Cons: "See above"
Cons: "The landing was exceptionally rough Also we were delayed one hour and then had to wait some more in hot bus until plane was ready"
Cons: "There is definetely not much space for passengers in economy' especially for such long flights and when the seat in front of you is inclined. Not pleasant to eat nor to watch movies. I had to slid in and out my seat whenever I wanted to go to the bathroom."
Cons: "The airport pretty much shut down for awhile so some flights were canceled. Due to the number of people attempting to check in and go through security, I missed my plane and was rebooked in an economy seat. These glitches occur but one would expect Lufthansa to have had a plan to deliver clear directions."
Pros: "Very pleasant experience. Seats were comfortable! Nice to get a pillow and blanket at each seat. Also that the tv had a space for a USB plug!"
Cons: "No seat assigned at check-in or even as they begin boarding. I thought I was flying Lufthansa. Air Canada gate agents were condescending. Very disappointed."

Pros: "On time"
Pros: "overall experience is great"

Pros: "It was ok"
Pros: "On Time / Comfortable short flight"

Pros: "Big airplane and therefore no turbulence. Food was good for airplane food. Boarding was pretty fast considering the number of people. Didn't have problems finding overhead luggage space"
Cons: "Sat next to the bathroom and therefore repeatedly got bumped by people and carts as they passed. The stewardess was polite but had an obvious fake smile pasted on her face. A bit more honest facial expression would have been more comfortable."
Pros: "The flight attendant was very professional. The flight itself seemed quick and easy, and I believe we landed early despite being delayed for takeoff."
Cons: "I wish the head rests had the "wings" that help keep your head from rolling back and forth. Also I wish we had an option for our snack."
Cons: "Flight overbooked and once they agreed to let me on the flight was delayed for hours. Made me remember why I fly BA now most of the time"
Pros: "Good entertainment selection"
Pros: "The staffing was adequate, the service didn't take inordinate time!"
Pros: "Nice plane and crew"
Cons: "Really? They took my new expensive lighter from my checking luggage? A can of hair spray is just as deadly, are they going to not permit those?...stupid idiots!!!"
Pros: "Good entertainment options and nice choice of movies and TV. Complimentary drinks are good and service is frequent."
Cons: "Difficulty with Lufthansa's website made it so that I could only complete check in for one person in our party. When we arrived at the airport and they printed boarding passes, the Lufthansa agent re-assigned seats without asking or telling me and gave us all middle seats. Very poor form. Food was either average or bad, depending on what was served. Boarding is unorganized, with people lining up over an hour prior to boarding and almost completely ignoring their boarding groups."
Pros: "J Lufthansa , this was my first flight with your airline and `i am glad to say that it was an excellent experience.\The crew was superb and the comfort of both the regular coach and coach comfort was excellent. `I would highly recommend you and will return as often as possible."

Cons: "The food was terrible, boarding was chaotic, only ten movies to choose from."
Pros: "I called Lufthansa customer service on 8/10/16 the day before our flight because I wasn't feeling well and was concerned that I might feel worse the next day and have to cancel our flight. The lovely Customer Service rep was so sweet and concerned about my health, answered all my questions about what to do if I needed to cancel, and told me to call back anytime for more help. Also the flight attendants remembered my food allergies and were very attentive on the flights."

Pros: "The Munich airport is awesome. My wait from my connection went smoothly and the complementary coffee was a plus!"

Cons: "Flight delayed, lost our luggage, broke our stroller"
Pros: "The food was actually tasty but we didn't get enough beverages to stay hydrated during the flight."
Cons: "My screen didn't work and the crew was rather rude about it and never fixed it. The seats were way too close together, which is to be expected but when the seat in front of me went back, I couldn't move at all and I'm not a big person. We weren't served water/beverages but once on the flight."
Pros: "The price point."
Cons: "Service was terrible, staff was rude. For an international flight they provide you next to nothing. Only 1 meal and soda or water. They didn’t even have coffee or give napkins with the meal. The seats were smaller than usual and uncomfortable. In addition they lost our luggage."
Cons: "It would have been nice to have a free drink and snack on the short flight. We would have taken some with us on the plane if we would have known that we had to pay for everything. Just something we have never experienced on any international trip before"
Pros: "Easy boarding, short flight"
Cons: "Free water at least would have been nice."
Cons: "Aer lingus uses double prong headphones which dates the whole experience earphones are uncomfortable and volume is bad. You have to pay for booze in economy for international flight, seats aren’t that comfortable but the selection of movies and tv is good. I will probably look elsewhere next time"
Pros: "Great selection of entertainment. Very cordial staff."
Cons: "The food was very salty and everything had dairy and wheat in it- which I cannot have. The seats were uncomfortable and I felt cramped."
Cons: "my seat wouldn't stay up, kept sliding back seat27a."
Pros: "Lots of entertainment. Spacey seats and plenty of bathrooms."
Cons: "The food wasn't great and I wish they would have picked up the dinner trays way sooner"
Pros: "I loved that they had blankets and pillows available, and the seats overall were comfortable. I also loved the in seat screens so we could watch movies. The select was a little limited compared to other airlines, but they still had some brand new releases. They also fed us two meals and a snack, and the crew was super nice."
Cons: "The boarding process was a little confusing. It was done by row numbers but not very well announced, so I wasn’t actually sure when my row was supposed to board."
Cons: "My flight from the US to Dublin was delayed by 3.5 hours because the original inbound plane broke down and they sent a smaller replacement. Then they could not locate a crew."
Cons: "I booked this in March and was seated 20 rows away from my wife who was on the same itenerary. Seats were cramped and uncomfortable and the food was terrible"
Pros: "Plane was half full."
Cons: "Food was terrible, and if you’re white and your significant other is black you may have to request things for her because she won’t get them even when she asks"
Cons: "Paying for soft drinks"

Pros: "He crew were nice."
Cons: "The flight has an hour delay from LAX that caused me to have 20 minuets catch my connection flight and I did not receive my bag. I’m on vacation for 5 days in Hamburg and I’ve already lost 1 day to go out and explore the city. This was my first time flying with Aer Lingus and I unfortunately will be my last time."
Pros: "More room on the Airbus on Aer Lingus. Comfortable temperature in plane. Easy boarding."
Pros: "Best meals I've ever had. Front facing sleepers are easier to sleep in than the diagonal configuration."
Cons: "Connections within Europe have no business class. It is actually a worse experience than Air France and Lufthansa."
Pros: "Nothing too exciting about the flight. It was a short connecting flight to our next location."
Pros: "The boarding was very efficient and overall the staff was very nice."

Pros: "Called the customer service to attempt to check-in online wasn't able to do it.the rep was hard to understand and he decides to hang up on after waiting 18 mins.called 2nd time I was on hold 15 mins asked for a supervisor. I told to call aer lingus to check in."
Cons: "The flight one flight attendant was just rude before take off my blanket was on my sit, she takes it and puts it inside the overhead and says you can get it back once we take off. Don't understand the meaning of that??? Then the same attendant was giving out breakfast sandwich I had to convince her that my son didn't get a sandwich. They walked by with the coffee cart she COMPLETELY IGNORE ME. Same thing for water. Bad experience with customer service center and one nasty attendant."
Cons: "Baggage took 38 min. To come out"
Cons: "Did not likevthe fact that beer and wine was not included on a trans Atlantic flight."

Pros: "Nice, punctual, quick flight!"
Pros: "Much better than the Rome-Dublin leg. A modern plane with entertainment. A boarding process with effective signage and flowing lines. An absolutely top-rate cabin crew. Actually enjoyable food."
Cons: "Really was well done: systems seem to be functioning smoothly and feedback processes are working. One thing I did note was that the waste seemed to be collected without sorting for recycling. Considering you all are on the Emerald (green) Isle, you could take up the mantle of being the "most ecological" airline in the world. It would only take a small amount of messaging."
Cons: "We are really upset that Aer Lingus and/or Bitish Airways lost our baggeage! All our clothes, toiletries, medicine, and other personal belongings are MIA and we want these two airlines to work together and expedite finding and tertuning our luggage."
Pros: "I got home"
Cons: "Lingus lost my wife and my luggage along with 20-25 other passengers. It took two days to get out baggages back and cost me a bunch of money, time, headache & hassle."
Cons: "Very few works to check-in luggage and felt extremely rushed to get through security and make it to the plane on time. They did not well accommodate other passengers who were trying to check-in in addition to a large > 50 child group with very poor supervision. At times, the children were yelling on the plane and no one asked them to sit down or behave."
Pros: "The staff was very friendly and helpful."
Pros: "Great movie and music selection. Crew was friendly"
Pros: "The takeoff, flight, and landing were all very smooth. The staff were nice and courteous. The boarding went smoothly."
Cons: "The video screen for my seat locked up and was unusable."

Pros: "Good flight crew, equipment and stewardesses"
Pros: "It was like flying Southwest Airlines; No first-class; no business class; all one class."
Cons: "Absolutely terrible food choices; and for pay only. Very disappointing."
Cons: "The crew looked completely unhappy. There was only one crew member smiling. The flight was delayed by about an hour due to food. I feel if we are paying for a flight that is 7+ hours the crew should at the very least fake a smile."

Cons: "Entertainment options were limited."

Pros: "The connecting flights (had mostly co-passengers all hurrying to the next flight) waited for us - thank you!"
Cons: "with that many flights coming through this airport, I would have expected better organization to shuffle us through. While the voice announcements were frequent and clear, the signage was less so. Food at airport is expensive."
Pros: "Flight crew, movies,plane"
Cons: "I bought tickets in march for a sept flight and was assigned seats with the bathroom wall behind me so I had limited reclining. Seems with such an adavance purchase I could have better seat assignments are at least been forewarned that I was assigned seats that had limitations."

Pros: "Excellent service. Everyone was very friendly!"
Cons: "There is little room to store stuff....headphones, charfers, toiletry kit, etc."
Pros: "Nice inflight entertainment"
Cons: "Plane boarded too late, missed connecting flight, left the baggage unattended downstairs without alerting owners of the bags, had to recheck bags and go through customs and security AGAIN and I am now waiting for 8 hours to board another 1-stop plane"
Pros: "The price was within my budget. Service was ok. Almost missed my conecting flight."
Cons: "In the last week I have flown Iceland Air three times. The airline was a not efficient and caused me to sit in two different airports for over 16 hours and cost me to miss a day of vacation and extra expenses to accomidate them. This has been a disaster only because of this airline. Next time I plan on using British airways, the flight I took with them was amazing and effortless on my part"
Cons: "Too hot inside"
Pros: "The Cheese-è3eits and the beer went a long way to ameliorate the high noise level in the cabin.."
Cons: "Plane was late getting in to Medford, so or next connection was not as leisurely as we had planned."

Pros: "Comfortable flight. Nice service. Good in seat screens. Overall very good flight!"

Pros: "On board entertainment was good (i.e., movies, shows, etc.)"
Cons: "No food was served."
Pros: "The speed of getting in and taking off was fast. Free blanket and pillow. In flight entertainment was good."
Cons: "I dont recall the plane but all i can say is that three people to a row is to much for the plane i was in."
Cons: "Bad entertainment, almost no new movies. No meal or drinks on international flight, food for purchased was not as advertised."
Pros: "Smiling faces. Politeness Helpful"
Cons: "With 2 Samaung notes and 1 Tabley and 1 Lenovo PC failed to get wifi on 1st leg? Why? To Reykavik! ! Flight stewardess also failed!! With help of crew to ZH got the net halfway on second leg ...!"
Pros: "For an economy flight it was pretty good. The aircraft was safe and clean. The crew was very attentive and courteous. The food offered was not more than a snack at fairly reasonable cost. I would recommend eating before the trip. The departure was right on time and our arrival was a little early. Our luggage was handled properly and arrived on time with our follow-on flight to Paris."
Cons: "For the price paid,, i really don't have anything against the trip."
Pros: "My seat was actually not too uncomfortable. I had travelled on Iceland air a few years ago and thought the seats were pretty tight and uncomfortable. This was better."
Cons: "Minimal beverages. Must bring your own snacks as they are only for purchase."
Pros: "The blankets were nice and long."
Cons: "I called in several days in advance to reserve a seat next to my brother. When I got to the airport they said that I didn't even have a seat. The airline stewardess kept running into me without acknowledging that she did, even though I wasn't in the aisle. This happened three or four times. I tried to ask her to stop and she didn't seem to hear me. The sound for my seat's audio entertainment system didn't work. It didn't work for my brother who was sitting next to me. They did not serve complimentary snacks or a meal for a 7.5 hour flight that started at 4:30pm."
Pros: "Counter personal were efficient and helpful Nice airplane Good entertainment system Crew was very accommodating"
Cons: "Food choices were very limited"
Pros: "Friendly and helpful staff, and a very smooth ride. They had a lot of movies for in flight entertainment as well- I recommend the Iceland air documentaries!"
Cons: "No free in flight food, however there were lovely options to purchase!"
Pros: "Staff was friendly"
Cons: "There was no way to reserve seats for the flight. I made our reservations eight months in advance and there was no way via kayak or Icelandair to choose seats. When we tried calling the airline, they told us we needed to call back 36 hours before the flight. When we called 36 hours before the flight they told us all of the seats were alr day taken and we needed to speak to the agent when we checked in. When we were given seat assignments at checkin and asked why we'd had no input into the seat selection, they said we should have called in advance. It was really frustrating, especially because we ended up in th back of the plane. I was in a middle seat, winch don't have any space for a bag under the seats in front of them. Then there were no meals served on the overnight flight. I bought a small salad for 12 euros. I have never in my life taken an overnight flight where they don't serve at least dinner, if not both dinner and breakfast. The flight was on time and the attendants were friendly, but I wasn't terribly impressed otherwise."
Cons: "I could not mov, the legroom was nonexistent, heavy people in front of me."
Pros: "Flight was on time"
Cons: "Could not select seats when booking 3 months out. Could only do this 24hr in advance. No app to checking/select seats. Had to be on computer. 7 hours and no food for free? Had to buy a $9 roll with some ham and cheese slapped on. Only came by with drink/water 2 times in 7 hours."
Pros: "The seats were very comfortable and I loved that the entertainment was free."
Pros: "On time and a smooth flight."
Cons: "No free food, not even peanuts, on a seven hour transatlantic flight. Never been on that cheep an airline befor, and the airfare was not that inexpensive. Will do more checking around next time."
Cons: "We didn't actually make the flight due to a fiasco with our shuttle company. We called the third-party company to assist with changing flights and, after 40 minutes on hold, JustFly.com said there was nothing they could do and that we needed to contact IcelandAir. After another 60 minutes on hold IcelandAir said there was nothing they could do except rebook us on a new ticket. $2000 later we finally got to go on our honeymoon. Long story short we had to buy all new tickets. JustFly.com only refunded $200 of our original ticket cost after assessing numerous cancellation fees (over $700 in cancel fees). We won't be booming JustFly again. Happy Honeymoon to us, once we finally got there."
Pros: "Great layover destination. Very comfortable aircraft as far as the flight and seats. Good price."
Cons: "Cabin was too warm. Food choices modest."
Pros: "Overall this was a good flight! I'd recommend Iceland Air for budget flying and just bring a few snacks."
Cons: "I'd honestly rather there be no food than gross airplane food so no real complaints. I appreciate the price!"
Pros: "I enjoyhed the entertainment on the flight. Great movies and tv selections."
Cons: "It was the first international flight I've ever been on where no meals were included in the price, so it was a disappointment that we were not given any complimentary meals or snacks, especially for such a long flight through dinner time."
Pros: "Free stopover in Iceland"
Cons: "Food choirs were meager Crew member stood in aisle chatting withe one row of passengers for over an hour during an overnight flight when most passengers were trying to sleep Bag went astray...showed up 12 hours later"
Pros: "We boarded on time and the plane was clean."
Cons: "We were told we had to check our carry on, which they said was too big, yet others with much larger didn't. The flight attendants were not friendly and we were past up numerous times when they were seeing & collection trash. Half way to our destination two of the three bathrooms were no longer functioning."
Pros: "Crew members were very nice"
Cons: "My transfer time getting onto this flight was too short and my luggage missed the plane. I was without luggage for the next 24 hours and was not offered a stipend to get basic necessities while I waited for my suitcase to arrive."
Cons: "They lost my bag. No food and no boarding system."
Pros: "they generally have good free entertainment options. The crew is always friendly"
Cons: "The flight had two legs and both were delayed. The first, granted, was out of Icelandair control because the president was flying into SeaTac. However there were a lot of delays in Reykjavik. First it took a long time for the bus to reach the waiting area where there were no seats for people to sit. Then the flight itself was delayed because they were waiting for another plane with connecting passengers from New York. There was a lot of sitting on the tarmac and we were delayed getting to our final destination. This is also the first transatlantic flight I have taken with any Airline where there was not at least one complimentary meal on board. Apparently they are reserving that now only for economy Comfort class and up."
Pros: "They gave a complimentary meal to my child immediately after take-off."
Cons: "Lost my luggage-- no customer service to recover my luggage. No reimbursement for days without luggage. The flight was insanely hot. It was simply not worth saving a hundred or two hundred bucks to fly this airline and I've never felt that way about a flight."
Pros: "Seats were comfortable with plenty of leg room and the flight was smooth and pleasant."
Cons: "The change in Keflavik was unnecessarily confused and lacked clarity."
Pros: "Check in and boarding experience were erfect."
Cons: "Seats throughout majority of aircraft (I.e., Economy section) are flattened from overuse, so they are hard and uncomfortable."
Cons: "Seats are very uncomfortable for long flight ."
Pros: "Luggage made all the very short connections, which has never been the case with other airlines such as BA, Air Nez Zealand, Delta and AA."
Cons: "pay for food"
Pros: "Smaller plane than most international flights I have taken. I felt that the air quality was better and now a day later I do not feel like my body is buzzing. Maybe it is because of less radiation on the plane? I don't know but overall I feel it was healthier."
Cons: "The seats are a little hard. I sat on my blanket and that made it better."
Pros: "The flight attendants were very professional and helpful, great selection of inflight movies. Food not too bad. Ease of connections was outstanding."
Cons: "I had an exit row (YEAH LEGROOM), but no option to decline my seat a bit....it's a tradeoff, I know. I would fly Icelandair anytime!"
Pros: "The plane and flight was nice and smooth."
Cons: "The crew didn't pick up food garbage as often as I expected and seemed to think when I asked her to remove the garbage that it was her job."
Cons: "757 is a bit narrow for long flights. Surprised that food and alcohol were not complimentary."
Cons: "A 757 is too narrow in the cabin for a long flight (6hrs 45min) which made it unconfortable."
Pros: "The crew was very helpful"
Cons: "Comfort seats"
Cons: "The seats were very cramped and the cabin was very hot for the entire flight to the point I couldn't sleep."
Cons: "Had to wait on the plane for an hour before takeoff for a 2.5 hr flight."
Pros: "first flight was cancelled: second flight was 4 hours late so I did not get on it because I would miss connections and any later flight would put into Kiev at 1 AM... thus 3 nights with no sleep. I then cancelled."
Cons: "first cancellation was understandable but everything after that was a fiasco including waiting 11 hours in Customer Service line to rebook cancelled flight."
Pros: "3 seats to stretch out and sleep"
Cons: "4 seats to stretch out"
Cons: "Seat was too narrow. Flight delayed 4 hours."
Cons: "Seats are very close together and when someone reclines the lap tray is on your lap. Nothingnthe crew can do - since it comes from upper management"
Pros: "Nice crew"
Cons: "Not let babies on planes"
Pros: "The food was really good."
Cons: "Temperature in the plane was way too hot. No AC plug anymore on Swiss planes. This is a really big problem as their entertainment system is not optimal. There is of course USB but does not allow to charge a laptop. Leg space is a nightmare (I’m 1m96). Other airlines are better"
Cons: "If the flight had not been cancelled!"
Cons: "1.5 delay and no help offered to make my connection and not miss it."
Pros: "Brought my own entertainment. Friendly staff. Great boarding process. On time departure"
Pros: "Very smooth ride"
Cons: "Foos was mediocre"
Pros: "Complimentary wine"
Pros: "Everything was okay. No complaints as such."
Cons: "It took a while for the plane to take off after boarding.m"
Pros: "The crew was awesome! Best flight I've ever had."
Cons: "Crazy cold all flight long, made me even waking up. They should have served gloves and hats."
Pros: "Flight attendants fixed my meal issues. Plenty of movies to pick from."
Cons: "Wouldn't let me select a seat at check-in, meal selection only worked for return flight, and the airline confirmation number provided by Kayak wasn't accepted by United. Kayak referred me to Swiss Air's website rather than United's. The whole check-in process was a convoluted mess when I've never had any issue with other airlines. I'm a slender guy with broad shoulders and the middle seat felt very crowded when surrounded by medium build people. Didn't manage to sleep a bit on an 8 hr red-eye flight."
Cons: "would like fruit as desert, not ice cream."
Pros: "Everyone was so friendly and nice!"
Cons: "There was nothing I didn’t like."
Pros: "United got me from Dulles t o Zurich. The boarding, flight, and food was as expected."
Cons: "Not being able to select my seat in advance of the day before the flight is not ideal."
Pros: "On time courteous staff excellent service"
Cons: "One and a half hour delay to get in the plane then we were told to sit on the tarmac for another hour. Pilots had no sense of urgency tying to make up any of the time. Flight attendant was extremely rude and condescending."
Pros: "There was vegetarian options in the food and it was good."
Cons: "I could not initially check in online since the flight was operated by United. It would have been good for the ticketing agent to tell me I should contact United and give the United Confirmation number. Also the crew were somewhat tired and even seemed a bit irritable. They wanted as few questions as possible."
Pros: "It was a good flight, no turbulence."
Cons: "The flight was delayed several times by 15 minutes. Not sure why they could not tell us how long the flight would be delayed all at once. They track the flight and know when it will land, don’t they?"
Cons: "You failed to properly put me on a plane"
Pros: "The crew on board was very nice."
Cons: "The Flight itinerary said Swiss Airlines but it was actually United Airlines. I almost missed my flight. How is this possible."
Pros: "Direct with a great price!"
Cons: "Food was just ok....."
Cons: "False advertising it was a United not a Swiss flight"
Cons: "Seat was way too small"
Pros: "Crew was polite"
Cons: "I guess San Francisco ATC (Air Traffic Control) decided the plane couldn’t leave San Fran until way past our take off time. Then it takes two plus hours to get the plane here unload and refuel and rest. So I missed my connecting flight to Redding. Which meant I had to fly to Sacramento. Then I had a pleasant 3 hour drive on I-5 (can you sense my sarcasm?!) didn’t reach my destination until 5 in the FREAKING morning. Around 8 HOURS LATE TO MY DESTINATION"
Pros: "Food was okay"
Cons: "Agent took an hour trying to figure out how to check me due to the connecting flight being under a different carrier. This is clearly something I couldn’t do anything about. kayak allowed me to book a flight and expect that no matter the number of carriers, there should not be an issue tying the connection with the other flight at the time of check-in. Because of the delay, my husband and I sat apart on am 8 hour flight and because we both were assigned middle seats, no one wanted to sswitch with us. The check in staff was very unfriendly and seemed stressed and overworked. United needs to ramp up on resources quick. The flight crew were very unpleasant. It was just the worst of all flights."
Pros: "Comfortable flight, good dinner, friendly personnel and good entertainment choices"
Cons: "We were delayed, apparently due to missing luggage. They estimated 10min but it probably took over a half hour. This affected our connecting flight."
Cons: "Big man in a small plane is uncomfortable. Add in a second big man as a seatmate and its even more uncomfortable"
Pros: "The boarding was a bit confusing by having another carrier handle the boarding. It was a Swiss airline but we had to check in with United...? Entertainment was great, easy to use. Flight was seamless with no rough turbulence. Smooth landing. Very good experience in all."
Cons: "The food and comfort could have been better, not bad overall. The fact that the connecting flight info (gate number) could have been shown on the screen much sooner so there would be a smooth transition,"
Pros: "Everything the flight but the food was satisfactory with United and not accompanied with food"
Cons: "Food not satisfied or accompanying with ex food because portion was to small"
Cons: "My 1st class seat was broken but the food was excellent as was the service and we arrived early."
Cons: "Whether it is Kayak or Swiss, you should warn passengers they can't enter Kenya with a passport that expires within 6 months. I had to miss my flight and get a new passport before I could fly."
Pros: "Crew, leg room, and entertainment."
Cons: "We had to be redirected because the plane's instrument landing system (ILS) failed. We were redirected to another airport where they had to make repairs and then fly back from Geneva to Zürich Switzerland. It made for a very long flight."
Pros: "Gate attendant helped reseat my 2yo so that he wasn't across the aisle from me. Enjoyed the comped food in the Economy Plus seats."
Cons: "United check-in at IAD was chaotic. Worst process I have ever seen."
Pros: "Constantly getting beverage service and so many movies and shows to choose from."
Pros: "Direct flight - nothing else"
Cons: "This flight is never on time"
Pros: "Flight crew were very helpful."
Cons: "too many people on flights."
Pros: "Punctuality, efficiency and courteous and prompt service."
Cons: "Only that WiFi is too expensive"
Pros: "I love that you can fly direct to Pasco now. For years, one had to fly to Seattle and catch a puddle jumper. You're only in the air for about an hour and a half and Pasco has been slowly upgrading their airport. I love how easy it is to visit my family in the Tri-city area now."
Cons: "They cancelled the flight ! This was our connecting flight so we have to stay there (Newark) till the next day 6pm with our own expenses."
Pros: "Standard average flight"
Cons: "The boarding process is an absurdly disorganized, terrible process. Don't encourage people to line up if there is no room in the terminal for them to do so. Food was also pathetic, especially compared to European competitors on the same route."
