Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "The crew was friendly, the food delicious, and the plane itself in highest quality and state-of-the-art."
Pros: "I like that there are multiple bathrooms onboard."
Cons: "The rows are so narrow between seats that your roll on suitcase will not fit. You have no elbow room in your seat. People who live in England are very rude and would not let those of us seated in front of them to deplane. Too bad there isn’t someway to make people wait their turn."
Pros: "Courteous and attentive crew from baggage check in thru baggage claim."
Pros: "Crew was generally nice and caring."

Pros: "Staff. Very couteous.polite. friendly."
Cons: "Good.entertainment choices."
Pros: "The flight crew was phenomenal, especially Daniella. Somehow we wound up with seats right next to the bathroom door, which would have been a pretty uncomfortable situation for a variety of reasons, but the flight wasn't full, and she helped us find a suitable place to sit. Also, my wife and I usually take our tea with honey vs. milk and sugar. Even though honey is usually one of the options for tea, she found a way to accommodate our request. The lunch meals were the best I can remember in a long time on an airline flight. They might have been the best I've ever had. The chicken curry was authentic, flavorful and spicy. Frankly my outbound flight had problems. My luggage got damaged. The transfer experience in Manchester left a LOT to be desired. I wasn't planning to use Virgin Atlantic again, but this flight crew (Daniella especially) redeemed Virgin Atlantic. They were attentive, pleasant, diligent."
Cons: "Only thing I didn't like about this flight was the boarding area. Once you get into that the area, you don't really have access to appetizing food (only vending machines) or even restrooms. That's one thing that could be improved."
Pros: "Staff was very friendly, the plane was very clean. Loved the entire trip, except for our uncontrollable weather delay."
Pros: "The crew were friendly."
Cons: "The food was okay. There were more tasty options traveling to Heathrow versus from Heathrow to the NYC. The boarding process was a mess. We had to wait in an enormous line and then take a bus to the flight."
Cons: "Incredibly uncomfortable, not enough minimum space to fit my knees behind seat in front when front passenger reclined. 6 hours is too long to have a metal rod sticking straight into your knee caps. Shoulders were squished between other passengers and had to sit twisted the whole way and Im not a large person, but am 6ft. Cabin crew impolite and unhelpful. Food was awful and made my friend sick."
Pros: "Smoothest long flight I’ve ever had. No hassles checking in, boarding or leaving the aircraft. Bags checked through to final destination without any problem. Good employees at the check-in counter and at the boarding gate. Service was good at LAX."
Cons: "Cabin service somewhat spotty. I was not served breakfast and had to ask for a meal even though all those sitting around me were served. My wife did not get the coffee she requested even though it was promised twice. Trash accumulated at our seat making use of the tray awkward. I tried to pre-pay for extra luggage on-line before the flight but the web site would not allow me to do so. We paid $100 per extra bag at check-in."
Pros: "I loved how the airline crew were very accommodating. This was an awesome experience. A+++"
Cons: "I have no complaints."
Pros: "The crew was friendly and professional, the food was good and offered frequently due to the long flight time (10.5 hours). The plane was comfortable even though nearly full. Overall, it was a good experience and I would definitely fly with Virgin Atlantic again."
Pros: "Seat is very comfortable"
Cons: "Service is super fast"
Pros: "I was selected for additional screening at the gate. I have no problem with this at all. From the start I told them I am traveling with my fiancee. They tried to hold me back in a separate area after the screening and I once again told them my fiancee was waiting for me. One staff memeber walked with me half way back to get her and then disappeared. By the time I found her and came back, the staff memeber was no where to be found. Now we had lost are spot in the line and had to go to the back of the line. We spoke to 3 different staff people about what was going on and everyone said, oh the guy over there will help you. But no one did. The staff had No idea how to run a security check or handle paople. There was No working wifi! There was no tvs in the seats, only the old style in the aisle. The staff told me the plan was going to retire at the end of the month. The food was more for animals then for humans! We got updates by txt 10 mins before the staff updated the gate on our flight out from SFO. I have traveled all over the world with a lot of airlines and Never had such a poor service, but what is it to expect. It was United after all!"
Cons: "Refund of the whole flight."
Pros: "Not flown with Delta in many years and impressed by the aircraft (A320), crew and customer service"

Pros: "I liked that the boarding went really fast and the staff at the JFK airport was super nice and helpful."

Cons: "Entertainment screens were of poor quality"
Pros: "The movie selections and comfortable headsets made it possible to watch three movies uninterrupted. The food selections were well prepared. Flight attendants were helpful and efficient."
Cons: "Boarding is always a bit of chaos when our seats are right in the back. People further up insist on boarding early and block the aisles in the process. Multiple levels of passport control and baggage checkout are chaotic, but that's for most all flights coming into USA? VIrgin/Delta handled it well enough. By the time we got through passport control in Boston ur bags were waiting and we had no problems at all."
Pros: "Makes travels to LAX a little easier for us dedicated Virgin Melbourne folk. Can. Ow fly direct to LAX without going through Brisbane and Sydney. Food was great. Boarding seemed a little slow. Flight was smooth and on time. Welcome back Virgin."
Pros: "Smooth boarding process"
Cons: "Delays caused us to miss our flight from London to Vienna"
Pros: "Flight okay and staff attentive. Seats still to close together. Had to purchase seat to guarantee not be in middle rows. Plane very warm throughout flight."

Pros: "Crew is well trained and efficient. Lounge food and service are excellent."
Cons: "Podlike seating in business class. Someone thought the zigzag a way of ensuring privacy. In fact you can't talk to your travel companion nor look out a window. Seats are either up or down and only a crew member can operate them."
Pros: "Nothing - except the toilets with tabs for lifting the seat & adjustable headrest. They forgot to load our toiletries overnight pack too!"
Cons: "The 787 has vastly inadequate Economy toilets - ONLY 4! For 200 passengers. Inadequate lighting for,boarding, unable to activate reading lights until AFTER TAKEOFF = groping in semi darkness, BAD! No window blinds = woken up by blazing sun in middle of 11 hr night flight, even with sleeping pills my sleep was wrecked, even with eyemask. Passengers penned in on narrow aisles by trolleys, unable to walk around plane & risk of DVT. Passengers disempowered by restricted space, lighting, mobility. I want more control over my personal mobility &, lighting. Horrible headsets (bring my own). This flight departed 2.5 HRs LATE from JHB & the crew & cavin service was SLOW. NO requested second cup of tea brought - I waited 20 mins & climbed over trolleys to get another one, even though it was requested of cabin crew. Do they just ignore us? Or forget?"

Pros: "They were were very kind and helpful to all passengers"
Pros: "Everything was great and I truly enjoyed this flight."
Pros: "Crew was awesome and their service was great. I liked that they put snacks like fruit out to eat during the flight."

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 ..."

Pros: "Al comprar el ticket no se aclaraba que a pesar de ser un vuelo internacional se debia pagar por las valijas. Venia de hacer 5 vuelos internos por Australia y en todos los casos tanto Jet como Quantas aclaraban que se debia pagar por el adicional!!!"
Cons: "Why are there no plug-ins?! That was very disappointing..."
Pros: "The food and service was excellent. Love it!"
Cons: "The cabin was extremely dirty, the food was awful."
Pros: "Food and beverage choices excellent"
Pros: "No queues on check in, security nor on arrival. New plane, touch screens, usual abundance of films and food. More drink rounds than last trip. Wifi if you want it."
Cons: "cabin crew very perfunctory. No apology for screen needing resets ( sorry about that would do). Ok but no smiles or personal interaction"
Pros: "The food has improved."
Cons: "Flight turned back after an hour. Held in HK for 24 hours. Dreamliner no big sea change in air transport. Economy still uncomfortable and cramped. Crew give the impression of being bossy and aloof, I saw them making faces behind someone's back. Emirates crew are so much more helpful and pleasant."
Pros: "Everything on-board was awesome...Great job guys!!!"
Pros: "Major issue: No information in advance of problems associated with transfer at Heathrow that required going from Terminal 5 to Terminal 3-- requireing a lot of walking, stress, time and security checks."
Pros: "The veg meal - paneer, rice, lentils - was absolutely delicious. In fact, all of the food was great."
Cons: "Slight problem with the movie viewing - the screen kept going blank every minute or two throughout, and had to be touched to restart. Only on the films, though; the TV episodes were fine."
"The seat back entertainment screen didn’t work at my seat. Staff was great."
Cons: "Being given seats at the gate. I like to choose my seat."
Cons: "More food more room - but hey that’s what we always want"

Cons: "Not sure"
Pros: "Food was good and plentiful. I definitely left the flight feeling full."
Pros: "The service during the flight was excellent."
Cons: "That they didn't load my luggage on the correct plane, even though they had 9 hours to do so. Then when I went to airport yesterday to pick it up, all the pull tabs on 3 of the zippers were broke off, my bubble wrapped bowls were destroyed, and all my books that I had bought were wet with pages stuck together.(ruined 6 books). Extremely disappointed,"
Pros: "Better than average entertainment system for domestic flights."
Cons: "Boarding done against logic: my seat was in the last 5 rows of the cabin and I was scheduled to board in the final group. When I got to my seat the first 30 rows were nearly fully, but the back of the plane was half empty. The whole time the gate agent was urging passengers to move faster through the aisle, but Delta should really rethink its boarding strategy. It shouldn't take 40 minutes to board a 757."
Pros: "Great crew and plane arrived on time."
Cons: "No entertainment and no place to charge devices."
Cons: "It was a late flight and didn't see the flight crew much at all"
Pros: "With all the competition among airlines and the cutbacks we suffer as customers Delta manages to make you feel like you matter still. Timely boarding, actual help with finding seats making boarding efficient (not just hurrying you along), updates from the cockpit that you could hear and understand, multiple choices in snacks-one even a healthy option, staff that was friendly and interested in making it a good experience not one that seemed bothered they had to work."
Cons: "Wait time because of Atlanta crowding.Re:hurricaine?"
Pros: "Professional, courteous, and responsive crew and attendants."
Pros: "The flight attendant was nice."
Pros: "Our flight attendant was excellent. Service with a smile."
Cons: "We almost missed the flight sitting right in front of the gate. No announcements could be heard in the gate area and when we asked, they said they were already removing our luggage, Very odd. Food was terrible! Choices were pasta and cold chicken salad. I had the pasta, which was bland ravioli in two bland sauces. I was surprised, because I had experienced better food on recent international flights."
Cons: "Was late almost for an hoir."
Pros: "The flight was fine"
Cons: "Delta does not transfer your luggage in Canada even if they say they do. It will not make it to your final destination"
Pros: "Everyone who has a kid knows how challenging certain things can be in a flight and for me the combination of a night flight interrupting my baby’sschedule + a full flight it equalized disaster. My daughter could not get comfortable for the love of life and I just felt horrible and frustrated and what sucked most was the 9 year old and her obese father siting in our row that kept giving us weird looks."
Cons: "There’s NO room in planes between seats. It’s 2018 and new planes must be done ASAP to accommodate people better. I’m 5’1” and 110 lbs but adding my 25lb daughter siting in my lap before she turns 2 is absurd to expect that it will be comfortable whatsoever for us or the people breathing next to us. Please DELTA, lead by example and make sure your planes are designed with more room in between and around the seats. In my opinion, every seat should be first class."
Pros: "No entertainment and no food other than snacks."
Cons: "90 minute delay leaving LAX. Stuck on plane. 30 minuet delay getting to gate after landing at SFO. Stuck on plane again."
Pros: "Friendly attitudes"
Pros: "The lady at the ticket inter helped me em get eat I wanted!"
Cons: "They lost my luggage."
Cons: "They had to change tires before we lelt in Toronto. And we spent more than one hour on the tarmac."
Cons: "Felt like I was sitting in my neighbors lap!"
Cons: "Both Delta planes were too warm. My fingers were sweating, which is a first."
Pros: "Almonds as a snack. Pleasant crew."
Cons: "No entertainment and my table was broken. The air from the vents was also colder. Not much leg room and I have short legs."
Cons: "very few movies to choose from. China southern had dozens"
Pros: "Nothing bad and nothing particularly good."
Pros: "I was bowled over to learn in flight that the lowly steerage (economy) passengers--and everyone else had a selection of 3 complimentary meals! Who does that any more! Unfortunately, the only vegan option ran out just before my seat, but I was still amazed and pleased....and have ordered a vegan meal in advance for my next flight. Incredible! Plus, plenty of room for bags, good video selections, and power at all seats. I love Delta and will fly them more often!"
Cons: "The main cable seats although newer were not very comfortable."
Pros: "Free in flight entertainment"
Cons: "One of my bags went to Santa Fe"
Pros: "We had a whole row of 3 to our family, so we could put the armrests up & the kids just laid down in our row (on me, & each other) and slept most of the flight. The flight crew was very understanding and helpful with my kids who were just with me on an intl flight "daddy duty.""
Cons: "Since it was a flight from Seoul, Korea to Seattle; it would've been nicer if all the movies had Korean subtitles-- my 4-yo boy who only speaks Korean, couldn't make it through more than 15 mins of a movie because he couldn't understand (of course, some of that is due to age & short attention-span). But he kept saying, "I hate English" in Korean while trying to pick a movie. Also, I'm 6'2"; so while it was nice having the whole row for my kids to lay down in-- I was cramped and uncomfortable the whole flight, even moreso with Delta's seats being closer together than on other international carriers I've flown."
Pros: "Boarding was efficient, crew was professional."
Cons: "STILL annoyed that $300+ only entitles me to a cup of soda and a bag of pretzels..."
Cons: "One hour late after a stay over already 4 hours."
Pros: "There were a lot of free movie options for a 6hour flight. The tv was new and had good definition. The food offered was quite substantial. The staff kept coming around with water and asking if there was anything else we needed. They gave free blankets. The lavatories were a little larger and more well lit than other airlines."
Cons: "The seats did not recline for anyone on the plane."
Cons: "Because my earlier flight was delayed they put me on this one in a middle seat I had payed for a plus front seat"
Pros: "Delta Comfort seats"
Cons: "Shuttle driver stopped to talk to a friend thus making me late snd missed my connecton. Rude agents at gate and when I called and spoke to a Delta representative, was told that they would have never put me on that flight due to short connection time. To which I replied that thet is an issue between Delta and their business withthe booking site and the customer should not be to blame"
Pros: "Gate agents kept us very informed and provided snacks."
Cons: "2-hour long delay"
Cons: "It's just a really small plane so the comfort isn't great but only a half hour flight"
Pros: "Boarding time and schedules were as expected or faster and other than the food incident, good attention from the flight crew."
Cons: "No choice during for lunch since the flight crew didn't have enough meals to cover the preferences of the first class travelers."
Pros: "Reassignment was pretty easy."
Cons: "No accommodations were available for overnight stay due to delayed flight."
Cons: "Flight got cancelled"
Cons: "I told you my daughter's birthdate, you know her age, don't require me to call you and wait on hold for 30+ minutes for her to not be seated by herself."
Cons: "I accidentally had my name entered wrong on my ticket and no one was able to help me change it. Thus I missed my flight and couldn't Even get a partial refund. Ridiculous. I now had to pay 2300$ for the same flight the next day."
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: "Viaje corto"
Cons: "Delayed flight made me miss my connection and spend a night in Frankfurt. Take off time, bag didn’t come out as priority, waited over 25 minutes."
Cons: "For some reason there were 4 really young children seated all in the same area. Kids will be kids, but perhaps spreading them out wouldn’t make one particular area so loud and disturbing. Boarding the plane I a more orderly way would also help."
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "The proximity of the arriving and departing gates"
Pros: "Plane is old and dingy. No charging available and the seats are so uncomfortable. Crew was just ok."
Cons: "Any entertainment"
Cons: "My 2 bags haven't arrived from Sunday 6 January till now (10 January) and all my winter clothes plus other important things are in it. I check every day with lufthansa call center but still no progress."
Cons: "The plane was uncomfortable and things were falling apart"
Pros: "The issue is not with Lufthansa but with the Berlin Airport. First of all, It is not clear that you have to do the checkinn at terminal B and then come back to the gate where you have to go pass security. This is when it gets even more complicated, the line is long and slow, there is only one security arch and xray machine, is took us almost an hour to go through."
Cons: "The issue is not with Lufthansa but with the Berlin Airport. First of all, It is not clear that you have to do the checkinn at terminal B and then come back to the gate where you have to go pass security. This is when it gets even more complicated, the line is long and slow, there is only one security arch and xray machine, is took us almost an hour to go through."
Pros: "Excelent service"
Cons: "I liked all"
Pros: "Friendly cabin crew"
Pros: "The bathrooms were always clean. The staff curious and attentive, food was ok. Overall very goid"
Pros: "Priority boarding for parents with children was a huge help. Provided extra blankets and most of the crew's friendliness was very appreciated."
Cons: "Provided bassinet is much too small for even a 17 months old. Also very hard bedding made it impossible for the kid to sleep. We observed same with the other parents. Alone with that, the height of the bassinet makes it easy for the kid to get distracted. WORSE PART: Our daughter couldn't get comfortable to sleep and got fussy, so I took her for a walk which didn't help much. Since it was bedtime 11pm with 0 to little traffic, and to avoid her crying from disturbing everyone I resorted to one of the bathrooms with her. She did fall asleep for about 1 hour until one the FA came literally BANGING on the door. Very rude even after I calmly explained the situation. So sorry for such people with no compassion nor understanding in their hearts."
Cons: "never got to goddamn frankfurt"
Cons: "Seats in front recline so that seat back is in your face."
Cons: "We only had 45 minutes between flights. We almost missed our flight to Naples due to having to go through security again in Frankfurt. The Frankfurt airport was very congested. I wouldn’t have booked a flight with such a short layover had I known how far apart the gates were and that we’d have to go through security again. I would suggest not offering flights with such short layovers."
Cons: "This flight from Athens was delayed which caused us concerned for our connecting flight in Frankfurt to Los Angeles. We told the crew and they were not very empathetic about our concern. It would have been great to have announced overhead or even to us personally all the gates to those of us who were getting connecting flights. We were just told to check the board outside once we landed. Lufthansa could have provided excellent service to my family if they had helped us with our connecting flight gate information to navigate the airport terminal we had never been in before. We literally ran to get our connecting flight which was upstairs once we identified the gate # by ourselves."
Pros: "They put me on another flight"
Cons: "Flight so delayed that you had to follow them and insist before they rebook you. It was not an automatic process. I was frustrated because I couldn't make it to Frankfurt!"
Pros: "How smoothly everything ran"
Cons: "Drinks served from glasses on a tray. I would have preferred an individual bottle of water."
Pros: "On time flight, good service."
Cons: "Booked with SAS, had to check in with Lufthansa, had a cbange,which required SAS again!"
Pros: "loved the candy given to us when we left the plane"
Cons: "Too many announcements"
Pros: "Nice to be on a full service airline for once"
Pros: "Crew kindness, comfort, convenient structure, etc. I hope to take this airline again for next trip."
Cons: "We were about 20-30 minutes late taking off, then we sat on the runway for about 20 minutes. This made it physically impossible to clear customs and go through security requirements at point of entry US in order to make connecting flight."
Pros: "The food and service was superb."
Cons: "Hickups in entertainment screens. Seats seem te be smaller again Rows without windows"
Cons: "Due to repair aircraft equipmen, almost 1h delay my flight."
Pros: "In my way back from Germany to USA was poor, from the costumer service from the airport to the airplane. They charged me extra on my fly back to US"
Cons: "Very much everything"
Pros: "The food, the staff, the plane"
Cons: "Unfortunately my movie screen wouldnt work which bummed me out for the long flight ☹"
Pros: "Leg room is superior!"
Pros: "Once again Lufthansa crew is the best"
Pros: "As always, Lufthansa provides a great flight experience. Attentive crew, clean seats, and good leg room. Will fly Lufthansa again and again."
Cons: "Food wasn't as good as last year. Not bad, just not as good."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Leg room"
Cons: "I didn't like missing my flight"
Pros: "Super staff!"
Pros: "GREAT BEER EXCELLENT AIRLINE!"
Pros: "Good entertainment and food"
Cons: "Could use a foot rest"
Pros: "Everything was exceptional. The crew provided excellent service, the aircraft was modern. Boarding was painless. Food was the good, all things considered."
Pros: "I always enjoy the efficiency of the crew members. The services are great. They even give a wet towel to clean the hands before meal service. Movie selection is descent. Not too many newly released movies though."
Cons: "The flight was delayed by more than 1 hour due to computer problem. The leg room was smaller than other airlines I fly with in economy class. It made the second half the trip less comfortable."
Pros: "Fast and efficient boarding. Cheerful and helpful crew. Clean cabin. Everything was 100%."
Cons: "Nothing. I was a happy camper from beginning to end."
Cons: "My video player did not work properly for the whole 11.5hrs of flight from Munich to LA. It was extremely tough to get it to play a movie. I am not blaming the crew, but their only suggestion was to restart it... Which I did... several times... but the player had a life of its own. Eventually I found a way to be able to get to a movie and get it to play, but it was not easy. I wish that there would be an extra player that could be provided as a replacement... Thank you."
Cons: "I really felt the food was not as good as I had on other lines. To help I had the chicken - and the veggies with it were mush as was the spinach with the egg dish - which also did not have much flavor"
Cons: "Very long lines while checking in"
Cons: "Seats too small."
Pros: "All was very proffessional"
Pros: "Again, excellent customer service. Can't say enough."
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: "In terms of things I liked flying with UA998 from Brussels to EWR: The boarding staff at Brussels airport was helpful, courteous and knowledgeable. Boarding procedure was smooth even with the extra security screening at the gate."
Cons: "It was quickly clear to me that the passengers where simply an inconvenience to some of the crew on UA998. As an example I fell asleep during take off and woke up in the middle of the meal service. The cart was only a couple of rows behind me in the half-ful Economy Plus section so I got up and tried to get the attention of the staff. The lady turned around and confirmed that "I had woken up" with a sigh, as is not only was it inconvenient to her that I was a sleep, now I had the nerves to actually ask for a meal. She presented me with the options of pasta and chicken and I politely asked what they where served with. She straight out said that "she really did not know that" and asked me to make a choice. I wont get into any other examples, the machine was half full at best and there was no stress, so frustrating to be treated like you are an inconvenience to the USA based staff who clearly just wanted to be left alone. The entertainment system barely worked, the touch monitor was very hard to operate - the pressure sensitive functionality was not working properly but I managed to get to my movie and avoid the Chinese subtitles in the third try. I fly United because it's part of Star Alliance, but otherwise I would try and avoid at all cost."
Pros: "The crew were great! The seats are not that comfortable, it happened that I had 3 seats raw for myself but the armrests were not going up so I could not utilize them and lie down to sleep."
Pros: "The best airline ever! Super friendly crew and staff, great customer service and nice planes. Love KLM!"
Pros: "Terrific hot breakfast in bus. class"
Cons: "Window did not darken like the others."
Cons: "Boarding at Florence is always chaotic but this isn't within the control of KLM or their crew."
Pros: "Very friendly and responsive crew. Announcements from the Capitan and chief of flight attendants are very informative and comforting. Seat positions: very good leg room (even in economy)!"
Cons: "Newer airplane, as 747s are kind of outdated now, especially for long distance flights. But overall had good experience with KLM"
Cons: "A little bit chaotic when they loaded two planes at the same time in a very tight space in Amsterdsm but this was most likey an airport soecific design issue and not a KLM issue. The flight was as good as can be expected fir an international flight. The staff was great"
Pros: "economy plus seats were nice, great movie selection, especially international movies"
Cons: "crew was not friendly, i had to ask for water many times, usually water person walk the aisle. food was terrible. other carriers food were better"
Cons: "KLM was not prepared to get wheel chair passenger off plane. Cost me delay of 1 hour. I will never fly KLM again."
Pros: "Checkin 1a at Schiphol had long lines, and no seperate counters for just bag drop. My family and I had to wait for 50 mins, to do a bag drop which in,y lasted 1 min! Flight was delayed, without proper announcements."
Cons: "Seat pitch could've been more. At least let us know via Whatsapp that the plane is delayed, or at which belt the bags would come out. This basic info was lacking."
Pros: "The crew was nice and helpful (our flight was 2h late so they put us on the one before in business class for us not to miss our connection)"
Cons: "A lot of delays, on both flights. We spent twice as much time waiting than flying."
Pros: "The flight was smooth, the service was friendly, and the food with plentiful."
Cons: "Too much activity in the cabin during the flight."
Pros: "Flight duration"
Cons: "Very stingy with the drinks Cramped seats"
Pros: "The flight AMS to MEX was smooth, very helpful personnel on board, we enjoyed a bit more space and the seat seemed a bit more comfortable."
Cons: "Besides the seat relative comfort, it did not recline much at all, i wondered what the extra money (at least $5 or $600) got us. The food, wine/ beer service was same as regular economy, the boarding took place at same time as economy, no drink before take-off if only sparkling water. And the plane was old generation 747 and the entertainment was same vintage: screen was not very bright and the selection of films was poor. No plug to charge electronics. We were disappointed with KLM when comparing with other airline companies offerings when you book in Premium Economy."
Pros: "The constant smile conferred by flight attendants through the entire flight."
Cons: "The boarding was a bit disorderly. Lanes for zones 3 and 4 were not clearly indicated."
Pros: "Friendly crew! More legroom, good entertainment and food was great! Smooth landings pretty much on time."
Cons: "Boarding could be better"
Pros: "Light snack and complementary wine"
Cons: "Flight was delayed, landing at vce took an additional 10 minutes due to no one at the jet way. Luggage service was very slow"
Pros: "Very attentive crew. Attended to needs immediately. Took a lot of time with each person when someone had something to say."
Cons: "The seat I had with no seats in front of me was very small. Much smaller than the other economy seats because the tray table and video screen were in the armrests. Paid extra for the legroom by ended up losing it side to side. Really had to squeeze into the seat."
Pros: "The service"
Cons: "The seats"
Pros: "Crew was excellent -kind nice and very attentive"
Cons: "Entertainment went out mid flight. Had to be reset off 30 mins but cam back up"
Pros: "Everything was clean and well organized."
Cons: "The flight was delayed 1 1/2 hours."
Cons: "Boarding was confusing and disorganized"
Pros: "expedited check in with nice staff. Security staff were pleasant, and the entire check in process for everything was easy"
Cons: "there was no lounge close to our departure gate"
Pros: "Nothing really"
Cons: "Flew KLM 27 years ago and the airlines seem to be stuck in the same era. Food is poor quality... Have you recently checked the Gulf carriers."
Pros: "Really friendly staff. Great service"
Pros: "Flight crew was fine. Food was good."
Cons: "Checking in was extensive for unaccompanied minor. But gate crew was very unnattentuve and though we showed up as first in line, they did not focus, and kept saying to wait. Ultimately our son was last person on the plane."
Pros: "Boarding was quick, Flight on time....just a regular service and plane"
Cons: "Terminal 3 Manchester is not worth staying longer then necessary, loud music, crowded....old"
Pros: "The time keeping was very good. We left on time and arrived early on both occasion. Good organisation. Excellent service."
Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "Entertainment was dated and poor in function. Our bags were 99 dollars each and we’re both lost and didn’t arrive. I just filed a claim and got rude service saying I should have filed the claim at the airport baggage area but there was not anybody there to do the claim then he agent upstairs said they just spoke to them and they are there and I should have done it there. This was so rude and there is no way to get back into customs area. If we paid 200 for bags I expect them to arrive on time. I’m asking for a refund of the baggage fees."
Pros: ".Very much on time with pleasant service."
Cons: "Can nit find much fault fir a short run!"
Cons: "Bag was lost"
Pros: "The staff were professional and friendly The food was very good and plentiful The inflight entertainment has lots of choices The bathrooms remained clean All in stark contrast with BA with who I did the same flight 2 weeks ago and all the above points were very poor"
Cons: "Amesterdam airport employee was really rude"
Cons: "Without any explanation the plane I was due to go to Istanbul on at 11.30 was not available. I had to wait for a small plane coming from Edinburgh then wait for it to be emptied of passengers and cleaned. This meant we were over 2 hours late into Istanbul. No explanation or apology. I then missed my next flight in Istanbul and had to purchase another ticket. I cannot believe that air passengers are treated in this way!!! I will follow this up with KLM when I go home from my holiday."
Cons: "suitcase didn't turn up, although connection was quite tight"
Cons: "That I was forced to check my baggage. I never received a chain ticket for my luggage. The flight has a 32 hour layover and KLM lost my luggage and it was not found until a week after my arrival back home. I still have not received my bag at this time. The boarding crew was manually tracking who boarded and who didn't. It was a cluster."
Pros: "Everything - Checkin, crew, food, entertainment"
Cons: "Our flight was canceled from Amsterdam to Bordeaux and did not receive any direction and had to find alternate flights for ourselves with the personal expense of using our own cell phones. Then our luggage lost for 3 days. Not happy!"
Pros: "I was upgraded to Buisness so, no complaints"
Cons: "No Marlboro light cigarettes on the duty free shopping cart"
Pros: "Very efficient boarding, fast and professional but warm and friendly. The plane was very clean and quite spacious for a two by two configuration. On time departure and landing and smoothed processing at the other end."
Cons: "Nothing to improve"
Pros: "I fly delta this was run by KLM they weight all bags delta does not they don't take TSA preach Check. Delta does It was a free for all with check in and getting into plane"
Cons: "See above"
Pros: "Excellent service, excellent food."
Pros: "KLM fed a sandwich even though the flight was only 2 hours. The crew was pleasant. Getting through the Amsterdam airport to catch a connecting flight with only an hour to do so was no big deal. Airport staff was pleasant and helpful."
Pros: "Good flight, we got a nice snack despite it being a short flight, the staff was great."
Pros: "Nice, turbulent-free flight. Food was good, service with a smile. Leg space was OK because Boeing 777s are usually better at this."
Cons: "Flight left over an hour late because of a sensor glitch. It is concerning when a technical glitch happens. But, the flight was smooth."
Pros: "Having exit aisle made a huge difference in comfort Crew were EXCELLENT"
Cons: "Food was not very good Tasteless and rubbery"
Cons: "Completely none sense to change the time of départure (30 min earlier) with just a simple email 24h before and w/o sending a text on mobile phone."
Pros: "Great food and movies."
Cons: "Might have lost my bag. I was told not to claim my bag and that it would meet me at my final destination. That did not happen. I even paid extra because of the over weight. When they charge you 100 extra euro you expect your bag to make it to its final destination."
"4 of us split across the row with people in between us. Narrow body trans-continental flights just aren't economy class friendly. It was hot, cramped and long."
"Nothing! the tsa personnel confiscated allowable carry-on items. We were informed that we should have been given additional luggage tags in DFW, that didn't happen and our bags were lost."
Pros: "Seating was comfortable though a tad bit cramped."
Cons: "Window was dirty from someone touching it on a previous flight. Cannot wear headphones during takeoff or landing was an inconvenience. Cabin crew made sure all passengers were held tightly to their rules but then got themselves a coffee and chatted up front the majority of the time. (Only an hour trip, so no beverages or snacks for us)"
Pros: "everything was fine. uneventful"
Pros: "Love the Airbus, roomy."
Cons: "Better entertainment movies, food are boring."
Pros: "My trip had two legs, Austin to Heathrow and Heathrow to Riyadh. The crew from Heathrow to Riyadh were great. I wish I could say the same about the crew from Austin to Heathrow."
Cons: "Overall, the flight was fine. My comments are relative to BA 1st class. At best, I would rate it in the middle of the business class flights I've flown on other airlines. There is nothing about the experience that is actually 1st class from a separate lounge, to boarding, to in flight meals. The seats on my planes were worse than Turkish Airlines Business class (among many others). Storage around the seat is also FAR worse than other airlines products,even in business class. I had taken the same flights in November and 95-98% of the entertainment options were the same. There were, maybe, 2 new movies and 2-3 new documentaries/TV shows. The in seat charger only worked on one leg. Several meal options were "sold out." Mediocre at best."
Pros: "Crew was very polite & friendly. Chicken & bacon sandwich was tasty, good amount of mayo!"
Cons: "A bit chaotic boarding in Mykonos... not BA’s fault! Bathroom was a bit smelly."
Pros: "Separate lines for boarding"
Cons: "No transfer or ticket agents to be found to change/upgrade flight."
Pros: "Great crew"
Pros: "Although we left late, pilot and crew kept us informed on why we were delayed and what was happening."
Pros: "Seat super small, could not avoid touching other passengers, I am not obese."
Cons: "One toilet for 120 economy class passengers, no beverages served complimentary, even a glass of water cost you. Unbelievable cheap, crappy airline now, what a downfall for such a carrier."
Pros: "The overall experience was great! I was extremely satisfied. I thought the crew was very kind and the extra touch of bringing ice cream to everyone as a treat was perfect for our family that had to restless little boys."
Cons: "I did find it strange that the only brought the drink cart around once during the 9 & 1/2 hour flight. It was a cost savings approach more than anything. For the crew, I am sure it was also a time savings approach. When going to find another drink, it was clear supplies were also thinning out."
Cons: "Missing one suitcase and it will be delivered a day late supposedly"
Pros: "Crew at airports are super nice and the ride was smooth."
Pros: "Crew was so nice and seats were comfortable"
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Better more comfortable seats"
Cons: "Missed connection from LHR to INV, now sitting 8 hours at LHR waiting for the next flight. In a word, a disaster!"
Pros: "There was NO water in a 4+ hour flight unless you pay!!"
Cons: "Non of the three bottles I asked for on duty free were onboard It is apauling that food & drinks have to be bought in such a long flight including water!!!"
Cons: "It was a two hour flight, we did not get the opportunity to buy a drink and food until an hour and forty minutes into the flight. This is not acceptable."
Pros: "I like everything."
Cons: "Lost 4 sets of golf clubs."
Cons: "Just believe overall they could do better"
Cons: "I'm not sure why the lady at the check-in desk was sooo rude and unwilling to help. Customers' presence was really bothering her..."
Pros: "The crew was very nice"
Cons: "The food"
Cons: "The plane was dirty"
Cons: "Incredibly poor customer service and their policy's are full of sneaky loop holes. Will NEVER fly with them again."
Pros: "Efficient, on time"
Cons: "Crew was not friendly and a bare bones plane"
Pros: "We enjoyed the flight from Orlando to London."
Cons: "Trying to find the connecting flight in London and not much leg room."
Pros: "The food was decent for coach, and wine is still included at no charge on trans-Atlantic flights. There were multiple recent movies available on the entertainment system, although the picture and sound quality was lacking."
Cons: "Since it was a wide body, there were no overhead vents. And for some reason they chose to heat the cabin to what felt like at least 78 Fahrenheit, in March. Also, the headphone jack was simply missing in one of our seats (rendering the entertainment system useless) and one of the seats in front of us was in permanent recline, cutting in to the already scant leg room."
Pros: "flight was not crowded and service attentive and courteous"
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "It was late, it was cramped, they make you pay for everything suitcases, soft drinks, the lot, next time we will consider who we spend our hard earned cash with Disappointing as I am a real advocate for BA"
Pros: "crew was nice and friendly food was good bit old aircraft so little bit less comfortable"
Cons: "Checked-in baggage got mishandled and haven't got any response from British airlines after 24 hrs of complain filed. and on top of it their website is not working can't update my contact details and also cant track status of my complain."
Cons: "Flight was very late. Reason given was a mechanical issue but last minute boarding was people whose flight out of Gatwick was cancelled and they were bussed to Heathrow so I suspect that was the real cause for the delay or at least a part of it"
Pros: "The gluten free option was pretty tasty."
Cons: "On a nearly 8 hour flight, only one meal was served. I was FAMISHED. I was waiting for another snack and the stewardess came around with kit Kat's and shortbread-- im gluten free and can't eat either. Really remarkable blind spot in their planning."
Cons: "I missed it because our flight was delayed out of JFK."
Pros: "On time, friendly staff"
Cons: "No entertainment in board and the AC dripped on me."
Pros: "lost baggage is impossible to gather info concerning it's status. No one can tell me when it will be delivered. We are beyond 24 hrs with no update or help."
Cons: "Crew was polite"
Pros: "The quality of the food was amazing. Flight attendants were very helpful and pleasant. The movie options were also wonderful."
Cons: "It was difficult for me to get comfortable. The lights that shine from above us were shining directly on me for a row behind me and for the person sitting on my left. Boarding was somewhat unorganized as there were people boarding in 2 areas."
Pros: "Punctual arrival. Vacant seats between myself and another aisle passenger in the center section provided additional comfort and privacy. Lots of attention from cabin crew."
Pros: "The speed of bouncing back from the computer system mishap"
Cons: "The lack of food. Little service on board. Nothing free. Check in process was chaos and people were rude."
Pros: "Hostess friendly and attentive"
Pros: "Nice crew"
Pros: "Great staff and actually comfortable :)"
Cons: "Everything was great"
Cons: "The only flight we have ever been on of two hours or more where there was no complimentary snack or beverage service---not even coffee or water!"
Pros: "Arriving safely."
Cons: "The temperature was annoyingly hot on board."
Pros: "We did land OK but JFK was snowed in and this probably caused the many problems we encountered. Iq always have bad luck flying in and out of that airport so I don't completely hold BA accountable. Staff we polite and efficient."
Cons: "We were stuck in the plane for an hour and a half after landing at JFK. On the ground they ran the engines so loudly my husband got a terrible headache. We mentioned the noise problem but were ignored. Once allowed to debark we were crammed into a long cold hall and waited another 1/2 hour before moving towards immigration clearance. To top it off the baggage conveyer system was broken and we waited another 45 minutes before they shut the building down. So we left with no luggage exhausted. One piece of luggage was left back in London. Not pleasant at all. We did get our luggage returned 3 days later. That was good."
Pros: "I liked that there was no one in the seat next to me. The seats were large enough. I am 5'9" so that is always important for me."
Cons: "The kid sitting behind me intermittently kicking my chair. I was awoken with 3hrs left to go with a hard kick. But kids what are you gonna do."
Pros: "We enjoyed the entertainment on the flight. The crew was great too!"
Cons: "We were right in front of the restroom, closest to the back wall. We kept hearing the toilets flush and had to deal with all the people in line for the restrooms. It just felt a little crowded back there. Boarding wasn't ideal either. We were delayed 3 hours and couldn't get a confident update until we actually boarded. The only thing near the gate was a Starbucks that took cash only. That's more of a problem with the airport though. Overall, for an 11 hour flight, it was quite enjoyable."
