Pros: "The chairs were actually more comfortable than the 777. The cheese bread sandwich they gave us was very tasty."

Cons: "When it was time to board, they just said we'll start with rows 1-15 then 16-30. However, they just let everyone stand in line and go as the line was started. It would be nice if they announced rows 1-15 and then announced the second set of rows so at least everyone knew when to go. It just seemed unnecessarily confusing to me."

Cons: "The boarding process at LAX was awful. I’m sure the horrible shuttle wait and transfer from terminal to terminal is the airport’s fault, but the airline did not do anywhere near enough to inform passengers of what was in store. It was confusing and annoying."

Pros: "Easy and on time and Delta Comfort is always the best. Easy boarding process too!"

Pros: "Quick boarding process"
Cons: "Wifi stopped working halfway"

Cons: "Great"

Pros: "Everything was fine. Delta did a great job."

Cons: "Snacks if possible"

Cons: "horrible boarding management in SJC."

Pros: "Bags arrived on the belt quickly"
Cons: "Why is there not saying precheck to use after you've been funneled through customs? ATL is advanced enough to have kiosk for arrival, even for those confused and not with global entry, but then forces you to wait in security line instead of the typically faster tea precheck line. Every minute I'm in line, I'm not spending money"

Pros: "Very informative staff"

Cons: "Server was mean"

Pros: "Lufthansa long haul flights has a really cool air flight status system."
Cons: "Sometimes you just get the bad luck of having a smelly passenger next to you. This was one of those flights."

Cons: "I don't know why all airlines don't have a more orderly system for boarding by zones (like Delta). Lufthansa and Swiss both just have a mob of people blocking the boarding area and hindering people who shoud actually be boarding to get through."

Cons: "-"

Pros: "The leg space was great for economy class. There was room for bags in the overhead. The movie selection was great."
Cons: "Boarding via bus.... first bus had kids, business class, and people who needed help. Second bus had everyone else. Both waited on the tarmac for the plane to be ready and both busses opened the doors at the same time. The families were swamped while trying to load the plane with kids in tow."

Pros: "I like the cree"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Flight left on time. Comfortable 747-400 plane with huge overhead bins and plenty of leg room even in economy, Great cabin crew. Food was, well, airplane food. But at least there was a vegetarian choice, which I looked way better than the meat dish,"
Cons: "Service was a bit rushed at the end. In the last hour of a 10-hour flight they served another meal, which was similar to the first meal (even though it could have served as breakfast or lunch). Also had to fill out the customs declaration and prepare for landing,"

Cons: "Boarding was ridiculously unorganized and stressful."

Pros: "The crew was very good and we were right on time."

Pros: "Attitude of staff"
Cons: "Food and delay"

Pros: "Short trip"

Cons: "See first comment."

Pros: "Always enjoy Lufthansa flights - Seemed a bit hectic this time"
Cons: "It took me 25 hours to get back home, multiple flights, lost luggage, and overall a disaster of a trip home. I was supposed to arrive in DFW at 2:15 p.m. and did not arrive until almost 2:00 a.m. My luggage came to a different terminal and did not arrive with me. In the end everything was okay but it was not a pleasant trip"

Pros: "everything was good other than the entertainment package"
Cons: "not verymany movies to select"

Pros: "I am in love with these guys! They made me feel very welcomed and proved that German quality is the highest one. The crew was just brilliant! Incredible comfort. Thank you!"

Pros: "Friendly and efficient staff."

Pros: "The good organization and the friendly atmosphere."
Cons: "The bad movies."

Cons: "They left my suitcase in Frankfurt with our car keys."

Cons: "It would really be nice as a paying HON/SEN and business ticket passenger to get priority boarding. As nowadays seemingly everybody has priority boarding, this offer does not make sense anymore."

Pros: "The crew - seemed very amenable and pleasant on this flight. One helped me move to effectively solve the acute posture problem."
Cons: "The seat - window by request, but it was in front of an emergency exit The seat - is jammed in - very tight - could not put it back to relax, and could not relax my left side by the window. My left shoulder and arm and left hip started hurting - couldn't sleep - took 2 days to get rid of the numbness in my arm. I asked to move, and it became obvious that there were many empty seats in the next section behind. I moved, and my comfort improved. Why was I given such a posture killer - especially on such a very long flight with seats to spare?"

Cons: "Fight was cancelled, but we weren't notified until it was time to board (30-45 minutes before takeoff). We went to the help desk and were placed on a flight few hours later, but were never told the reason for the cancellation."

Cons: "Seat was too small and really uncomfortable"

Cons: "Very long delays"

Cons: "The person at the Swiss/Lufthansa front desk, some Mohamed guy, was very rude when he did my check in"

Cons: "Handle on wife's Travel Scoot was slightly bent but it still works."

Pros: "Having own TV moniter and many options for entertainment. The meals were good and staff friendly."
Cons: "Every seat was taken and the flight was cramped. But the plane was configured so you could get up and walk around every few hours."

Pros: "The flight was comfortable, the crew very nice, the food good and many good movies to choose from."
Cons: "Could have used a few more snacks. But didn't bother to ask for any either."

Pros: "Was given an upgraded seat due to the confusion on my confirmed seat being given away."
Cons: "Confusion on my confirmed seat assignment caused major frustration when in a foreign country. We took off late so missed my shuttle in Seattle so had to wait 2 hours for the next shuttle."

Pros: "Entertainment, flight crew was courteous and helpful, lots of snacks, water, and free wine!"
Cons: "One of our pieces of luggage did not make it back with us. The good thing is that the Lufthansa staff was helpful, the automated emails kept me informed, and the bag was delivered to me as soon as possible. Seems to me it was as good as it gets when a piece of luggage gets lost."

Pros: "I have a servere hearing problem and was concerned (since we were late leaving Zurich for my changeover in Frankfurt), that I would be late because I can't hear any loudspeaker systems (either on planes or in airports). I felt that I could get easily lost between flights and not have time to get to the Frankfurt/Denver flight. I told this to the person at the gate in Zurich, and he immediately arranged for someone to meet me in Frankfurt and take me there. I was met by Maika in Frankfurt and she was just excellent--personable and efficient and really helpful. I'm sorry I couldn't remember the name of the person at the gate in Zurich. He was also great. I wouldn't have done this if I had had more time, but this really made my day (and my flight!) ! Thank you!"
Cons: "Boarding in Zurich is tough for infrequent travelers because all the desks say SWISS. And it took me a long time to realize that SWISS handled many airlines. Perhaps the signs could be bigger."

Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "No food service for a evening flight. Delayed because of a toilet problem."

Pros: "Lufthansa rocks!"

Pros: "Entertainment and crew was excellent"
Cons: "One flight assistant seemed a bit gruff and impatient compared to the others . Also food was nothing special. We could have used more water offerings and trash pickups during the flight afterwards the cabin was a mess."

Pros: "They didn't charge me for my surfboards which was great. It was my only check-on bag and under two meters and that should be free on every airline. Flight attendants were very nice and professional. I gave the food 5 stars based on other airline food, I'm not expecting restaurant quality at 37,000'. Movie selection was adequate for me, although I've seen some complaints in the reviews here."
Cons: "It was a little tricky checking in on my phone. The check email reminder didn't carry the info I needed to check in which required extra searching and copying and pasting. That experience could be streamlined. There was group confusion when being directed to board the plane on two flights."

Pros: "The price, the service, the food."
Cons: "The sardine can."

Pros: "Vissited my brother in law in Karlsruhe Germany wonderful trip to and from Frankfurt"

Pros: "Crew was great... food was wonderful. The lie-flat seat made my day."
Cons: "Nothing."

Pros: "Food and seating space much better than Delta."
Cons: "My luggage was left in Frankfurt at connecting flight from Frankfurt to Atlanta"

Pros: "I love flying with lufthansa. Staff is friendly and chatty. Personal service is excellent. Food could be better compared to other airlines, but is not so important to me when it comes to flying."

Pros: "Takeoff was on time and efficient."

Pros: "You fed us a lot, which was appreciated. The food was pretty good, especially for airline food. And you were generous with the alcohol:-)"
Cons: "My seat mate was very difficult. I'd appreciate more movie selection, like newer US films."

Cons: "Didn't take it"

Cons: "Boarding was late and a bit chaotic."

Pros: "Everything was great. Good movies, helpful crew, good food for an airline."

Pros: "On time, quick, reliable."

Cons: "KLM lost my suitcase and did not deliver it until three days later... They refused to compensate me for having delivered the bag with broken articles inside (A pair of Rayban Wayfarers!)"

Pros: "Due to business I travel allot so I deal with allot of airlines. This is by far the best airlines I have used. Excellent crew and airport staff. I don’t think words can express how satisfied I am with this airlines and airport. The nicest people and great service. Clean and modern aircraft. Going to try flying only with KLM from now on."
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "The only complaint I had was that it was very warm on the flight (and I usually get cold on flights), and in the seats we had there weren't fans above the seats. A few rows up they had fans, so apparently you have to pay extra for air... This wouldn't be a big deal on a short domestic flight, but for an international flight it was a long time to be uncomfortable!"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Transavia does not serve anything complementary, not even water. A flight between two countries that is five hours long must be better than this. I was not aware of Transavia doing that before I booked. I will never fly with them again"

Cons: "Still don’t have my luggage yet"

Pros: "Comfortable seat, great crew."
Cons: "Flight delayed, no USB port and no entertainment"

Pros: "The crew was great. The soecial meal request was hadled well despite oversight."
Cons: "Soecial meal request was made in advance but overlooked. Did not mind it so much as eating less is not a bad idea! To err is human."

Cons: "Too hot inside the aircraft"

Cons: "Boarding was very slow."

Cons: "This was just a short commuter flight from Lyon to Amsterdam for connection."

Pros: "The crew was great but the seat wasn't as comfortable and didn't have much leg room."

Pros: "Crew was in a festive mood, the meal was unexpectedly delicious"
Cons: "Seats ok, but could be more comfy"

Cons: "Not enough leg room"

Pros: "short, sweet and to the point. 1+ hour flight is usually an easy hop."

Pros: "Very friendly onboard personnel - I really had kind of homy feeling."

Cons: "Didn’t happen."

Cons: "Flight was cancelled."

Cons: "Boarding was confusing and disorganized"

Pros: "Crew"
Cons: "N/a"

Pros: "Left ontime and service was excellent."

Cons: "We did not get two of baggage at the destination."

Pros: "We got a meal for a 1h flight only"
Cons: "No entertainment but normal for this type of flight"

Pros: "We are guessing they either overbooked or they didn't have sufficient passengers on a Tuesday afternoon who's final stop was Glasgow. They rebooked him for 1200 the next day. DFW to MN, St Paul to Schipole, Amsterdam to final destination, Glasgow. So he ends up having to pay for another Lyft back to our apartment in Dallas, then another additional one for the 12 noon flight the next morning. If he didn't have family living in Dallas, he would've incurred a hotel fee too."
Cons: "He was bumped to the next day due to his flight being cancelled. Then re-booked the next day, with an additional layover. Then due to a 32 minute layover that left 3 minutes sooner..."

Pros: "The crew were hardworking, responsive, conscientious and friendly"
Cons: "Really poor entertainment choices esp compared to my inbound AirFrance flight. Boarding was pretty disorganized and late."

Cons: "Actually the Welcome on board announcement. The part where they special welcome loyalty program members. I do not get that... I am an explorer holder my self, but really?? so other paying customers are not as welcome. This is leftovers from the older days.."

Pros: "Food was good and crew members were very nice"
Cons: "My check in luggage was in very bad condition when I receive it. My clothes were all wet and they got bab by each other’s colour. Many clothes are not in a condition to wear now. Those were expensive and I had a big loss because of that."

Cons: "Food"

Cons: "Bit cramped for space"

Cons: "Missing wheel chairs swrvice lounge far away no food option just lame klm tipique"

Cons: "Crowded seating, wake-up for breakfast service two hours before arrival"

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: "The cabin crew were pretty good. That's about all that was good."
Cons: "I paid almost $400 for upgraded seats. When I got to the airport-- no seats-- both ways!! i didn't even have regular seat assignments. I had to choose from the last few seats available. The ticket agent, the gate agent and the cabin crew all did nothing to make up for the fact that their system screwed up and stuck me in a cramped coach seat in the back of the plane for 11 hours-- TWICE! Beyond that, KLM must have one of the oldest fleets in the sky. Both ways LAX->AMS->LAX, I was on a 30-35 year old 747 with no wifi, no power and a ten-year-old entertainment system. Never again."

Pros: "The last two times we connected in Amsterdam to Humberside our luggage was delayed. This time it wasn’t. The simple things give the greatest satisfaction"

Pros: "The included snacks and the seats."
Cons: "Nothing."

Pros: "The crew service is impeccable. Ground services very friendly and professional."
Cons: "The seats are very uncomfortable. The individual screens are simply outdated like you basically will damage your eyes looking at them. No chargers for phones."

Cons: "Not only was there free food but they tried to sell you a bunch of stuff. Not a moments piece."

Cons: "Service"

Pros: "They were awesome."

Pros: "Free wee cake."
Cons: "Nothing in particular."

Pros: "Same as above"

Pros: "Food and staff were great"
Cons: "Entertainment system old and not as many options as other KLM flight. No power on aircraft for charging"

Pros: "Overall very nice flight, even comes with free drink and snack"

Cons: "seats on Jet air flight are very uncomfortable"

Cons: "sardines!"

Pros: "crew"
Cons: "food"

Pros: "Crew and food"
Cons: "Seat"

Pros: "Crew very efficient Food was reasonably good Good movie selection"
Cons: "Boarding at AMS was very disorganized. No row boarding for economy, just all at once Lights stay on during the flight, so difficult to sleep"

Pros: "Not time departure and cabin crew were effective and efficient."
Cons: "Nothing really"

Pros: "Staff was excellent. Entertainment options pretty good."
Cons: "Seems very dated. Business Class felt cramped and not very luxurious."

Pros: "Plane was clean, plenty of leg room, cabin crew was friendly, flight was on time."
Cons: "Checking in was a nightmare of inefficiency. I couldn't use self-check-in for my bad because I was flying to America and for some reason, this meant I had to hand my suitcase to someone rather than just putting it on the conveyor belt. There were about 8 people ahead of me, and yet it took a solid hour of standing in line waiting to get to the counter. How it could possibly have been so insanely slow is beyond me. When it was finally my turn to submit my bag it literally took 30 seconds. And yet I had to wait an hour. Grade: F-"

Pros: "The flight attendants were the warmest and most personable I’ve seen in a long time. All ground staff had the same amazing hospitality."
Cons: "Finnair A321 HEL-DXB, 6 hour flight, uses regular EuroBusiness seats (same seat as economy but blocked middle seat and better food), no wi fi , no tv, very uncomfortable aircraft."

Pros: "Of all the flights I checked this was the most convenient in timely manner and comfortable."
Cons: "Movie options."

Cons: "The seats are uncomfortable, no leg room, no space between seats and the trays hit ones’s stomach. The whole experience was very uncomfortable. The food was awful. Overheated and not cooked through at the same time. Breakfast was odd. Non-Greek yoghurt and cashews. Just strange."

Pros: "Great crew"

Cons: "2 н in plane, then tecnicans search and fix problems"

Pros: "Smooth flight"
Cons: "Better leg room, better food, friendlier crew. Today you only get good treatment if you pay extra for it... Something is wrong with the pay-for-good-service model most airlines follow"

Cons: "The transfer was a disaster. We had to go through the security check (even though the transfer was in the Schengen area) and almost missed our connecting flight."

Pros: "New plane, good food choices."
Cons: "Plane could use a deep clean. Entertainment choices were limited in terms of latest blockbusters."

Cons: "video was broken"

Pros: "Great service on biz class, comfortable seat, quiet airplane (A350)."
Cons: "I liked it all."

Pros: "Nice crew that were helpful."
Cons: "Small plane, cramped seating."

Pros: "Staff were helpful and nice."
Cons: "No snack serve and no entertainment."

Cons: "Seats. Very uncomfortable"

Pros: "Friendliness of staff"

Pros: "The flight was on time and everything ran smoothly."
Cons: "It was a bit confusing that the tv's came out out the seats, an announcement about that would have been helpful."

Pros: "I loved the colors of the flight.light blue and green. Gave a peaceful ambience. The flight attendants were very courteous and smiling. Especially the women flight attendants. The food was excellent. It was interesting that the flight from Helsinki to Chicago served a Indian style dinner comprising of lentils, rice and chickpeas. I liked that too, though I prefer the meditarranean fare. I liked the boarding as they were very strict about families with children and gave them priority before other passengers."
Cons: "I did not find too many indian films which I would have liked, especially in a flight because Indian movies are 3 hours long and help to pass the time quickly :). I would have liked more variety in the Hollywood movies as well. They mostly had much older films and hardly any of the new releases while Emirates flight had lot many more new releases and oscar winning movies. They served the Indian amul cheese which is not worthy of serving on a flight, and they could have served some better cheese."

Pros: "Service, staff, food and beverages all excellent"
Cons: "Seat was just a little hard when lying on my side"

Pros: "Finnair lost my luggage on my way to Sweden. However, they upgraded my seat to Business class during my flight home from Helsinki. It was great!"

Cons: "I don't live in Riga and had pick up scheduled in Rigas airport to take me home to Telsiai, Lithuania. Because flight was delayed and I had to fly to Talin and then to RigaI I arrived at 10pm plus took me another 30min to figure out what happened with my luggage. I am still in Riga waiting for the morning to schedule another ride home. Very long , inconvenient trip ;-("

Cons: "The flight departed late because the preceding inbound flight was late. No reason was given to the customers."

Pros: "Everything went smoothly"

Cons: "Hi I try to cancel my flight to tel aviv bat no bady Will to help me Bad castomer Service for kayak app I hope you help me to get my many back Malki"

Pros: "I got to my destination, eventually."
Cons: "Cutting corners and cheap. The personnel isn't helpful, they basically don't care about you, typical nordic behaviour. Flights were delayed. Upgrade to business was not worth. Hidden costs. Overall a bad experience."

Cons: "A very very small plane. Cold staff"

Cons: "My luggage was lost"

Cons: "Plane too old for such a long flight"

Pros: "Plane was on time Checked luggage arrived I slept for the duration of the trip which made the 5 hour flight OK."

Cons: "30 min between flying"

Pros: "Pleasant staff and crew."
Cons: "Tv screens are old and function very poorly."

Pros: "The flight was great...the staff are wonderful people...they are so sweet and kind...they work so hard...the service was great...I love their personalities..The Movie selection was awesome...Because of my broken leg, they were there to help me right away...amazing crew...will be flying with them again in October....looking forward to flying with British Airways again... Thank you for the care... Yours Truly, Sylvia Smith..."
Cons: "I have no complaints at all...."

Cons: "No TSA pre check"

Cons: "nobody from justfly and kayak even tried to argued that I didn't missed the flight and I was one of hundreds that was in line way before flight time"

Pros: "Personnel were very nice and fight was comfortable"
Cons: "Received an email 30 minutes before leaving for airport that flight was on time. Went to the airport and found out flight was delayed 4 hours"

Pros: "Departed on time and arrived early. What more could you ask for?!"

Pros: "Called BA (the carrier for our FinnAir flight) when I couldn't check in (didn't have a booking number that worked). Staff member did tell me that all was in order with our booking. He wasn't able to check us in anyway, as something was amiss with 'the system'. In the end all worked out fine, we just made sure to get to the airport early to make sure we got decent seats."
Cons: "A bit nerve wracking to see online that our flight information 'could not be found' when trying to check in with the booking numbers I had!"

Pros: "Flight was operated by American and they really absolutely need to update their planes on the JFK-CDG route. It is the only airline that does not provide individual screens, the seats barely recline and the air quality on board on board lives a lot to be desired as the plane odor is just not good."

Pros: "Not much."
Cons: "Loading was like a cattle car. Drinks were slow to be offered. No drinks until after food was served more than one hour into the flight. No one ever seemed to check if I needed anything. When I did, there was no call-button. Seats were from the 90's and VERY narrow. I would NEVER pay for First/Business class on Finnair again. It was very poor."

Pros: "All went smooth"
Cons: "The vegetarian food was very boring and small portions. Please spice it up and don't just take away things. Add things: tofu, mushrooms. Whatever."

Pros: "Very relaxing, enjoyable flight. Entertainment was great with many different options to choose from (music, tv, movie, games). The plane was not full and I had the entire row to myself, making the flight that much more comfortable. Awesome crew that was attentive and friendly. Probably one of the best flights I've ever been on. Thanks!"

Cons: "Never picking up garbage (telling us the next crew will do that) The cabin a mess. NO LEG ROOM. Terrible."

Pros: "N/A"
Cons: "Small uncomfortable airplane."

Pros: "Staff efficient and kind. Main meals good. Snacks/lunch not as inspired. Entertainment options were varied."
Cons: "Boarding was a bit of a free for all. Seats cramped."

Cons: "Sat on runway for almost three hours. Delayed connection."

Pros: "Food was better than flight to London. Boarding went well."
Cons: "Plane left almost an hour late with no explanation given. For huge plane, still cramped unless you pay loads for more room. Upgrade prices outlandish!!!"

Cons: "The movies shown were not great and there were no TV screens in the headrests. Also, you have to pay for soda. Only coffee, tea, and blueberry juice is complementary. Our bags were also lost on this flight, or never made the connection from our previous flight."

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

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

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Old plane, noscreen on seats,, can't choose movie, no charger and USB. Terrible food Very expensive for the price"
