Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Flight was good. The problem was the ticket purchased from Kayak was not as stated. Because there was a layover in Amsterdam, I was not able to check my bag all the way through to USA. AND I had to visit 5 counters to check bag, pay for bag at different counter and 3 other counters!"
Cons: "It would have been better if the ticket I purchased was the one that I selected. It was not as advertised. I searched for ticket that was translatlantic with one checked bag. BUT kayak booked an ECONOMY LIGHT fare that required payment. It was not as advertised and a total head ache for check in."
Pros: "Booked a flight to Italy in economy section and was worried that it would be a difficult and uncomfortable flight. However it exceeded my expectations and never felt that I was in the economy section. They provided excellent service and made sure you were comfortable and attended to. Would recommend"
Pros: "The food/drinks"
Pros: "The crew did their best, but the seats were very uncomfortable;.The food was uneatable."
Cons: "We left Frankfort very late, we had not even moved half an hour after we were supposed to have left. They apparently changed our flight plan to try to make up time, and flew faster; but the conclusion was we were supposed to arrive at 18:25 and didn't arrive until well after 19:00. Refund"
Pros: "everything from the boarding and check-in process to in flight comfort."
Pros: "Seats were spacious and they fed us on the flight."
Cons: "In flight entertainment."
Pros: "I was traveling with a baby alone and crew was very supportive"
Pros: "Super service. From gate in Frankfurt to Rome."
Cons: "Communication on which luggage carousel our luggage was going to be on. The screen said, carousel 11 when in actuality, it was carousel 10. Very confusing...and caused me a delay. That’s the only frustration in the entire trip so far."
Pros: "The crew was good."
Cons: "The infotainment system could be better. My system was not working for the first 3 hours and then the sound went out out completely after 2 hours of use. Also the airbus model still use the outdated 2 prone headphone and I was not able to use my noise canceling headphones."
Pros: "The crew."
Cons: "The airplane arrived over 45 minutes late."
Pros: "Lufthansa take great care of their passengers, always"
Cons: "Poor gliding in and rough landing"
Cons: "All great"
Cons: "A little bit turbulence"
Pros: "Met expectations"
Cons: "Nothing to note"
Pros: "Arrived safely."
Cons: "Late departure then drove around the airport for about 30 minutes after arrival before rushing to passport control and connecting flight."
Pros: "Movie choices were great! The crew was very nice and accommodating."
Cons: "Uncomfortable seats, but that's a problem with every airline."
Pros: "The crew onboard the flight was very friendly and accommodating! They did their best with what they had. I also like that there were diabetic and vegetarian meals offered, although the diabetic meals should ideally focus on lower carbohydrate totals. Fruits and breads can pack just as much sugar as sweets."
Cons: "Starting with the boarding area at LAX, there was some really high pitched siren that kept going off over and over which no one seemed to care to investigate or do anything about. It was very irritating, and seemed to put lots of passengers in a bad mood before the plane even started boarding. Then when they announced boarding was beginning, everyone got up and created massed around creating four chaotic lines. It was a mess. We left 45 min late, which caused us to run to make our connecting flight because the person at the gate never told us it was also going to be leaving late. The plane itself was extremely uncomfortable as well. I'm 5'8" tall and that's mostly torso. I fit easily in the back seat of my buddy's mini Cooper, and I could barely fit in the space without my legs hitting the seat in front of me. That was before the guy in front of me put his seat back and made it so I could barely reach under my seat. Then there was the control panel for my personal video monitor. The panel was located on the armrest in just the right spot where Everytime I put my hand down I accidentally pressed a button to call the flight attendant, or turn the video screen on off, which was really obnoxious when I was trying to sleep and kept accidentally turning on the bright screen which woke me up. The video monitors we're also touch compatible, but the screen was horrible about registering finger presses which led to the lady in the seat behind me smashing the screen as hard as she could repeatedly with her finger, which vibrated all the was through my headrest so I could feel it as if she were trying to get my attention. There was also no air flow above the seats... You simply had to rely on the flight attendant to set a temperature that the whole cabin enjoyed, or you had to suffer silently. Finally, the reading lights on the plane we're so high up that turning one on lit up all the seats around you as well, which meant you had to choose to either sit in the dark and not read, or turn on your light and read quietly while the people around you cursed your name while attempting to get some rest."
Pros: "Timeliness, crew, and almost every aspect of the flight"
Cons: "Boarding process was very diorganized!"
Pros: "The ease & comfort provided"
Cons: "The food was ok. I didn’t sleep on my 10 hour flight because there was an infant in front of me who screamed most of the flight. It’s time to create a “Family Area” for those fling with small children. It became a burden in everyone in the vicinity. Not what I paid for."
Pros: "Very attentive, friendly and multilingual crew, frequent offers of food/drinks, good selection of movies"
Cons: "More a problem of the San Francisco airport than the airlines, but getting through passport control/customs involved multiple VERY long, slow-moving lines with very few people working to process the crowds. Then, even though my bags were checked all the way through to my final destination, I had to pick up my luggage and re-check it, and go through security again--and that also seemed poorly organized and/or short-staffed."
Cons: "Lost a whole day and a half of vacation!"
Cons: "It was one of the best flight of my life. Thr crew was absolutely super professional. Very clean aircraft, flight on time and excelent service. This flight proofed that everything is possible. Kidneys and smile were key factors"
Pros: "Overall it was a good flight."
Cons: "The dessert could have been better than a Kit Kat chocolate bar."
Pros: "Flight itself was fine. Some turbulence but that could not be helped"
Cons: "My 6am flight was cancelled while we were waiting in line. No one explained anything. Just went up to desk and I was put on a flight an hour later. But then my bag did not make it I was there in plenty of time to check in. Easy explanation would have helped"
Pros: "Friendly crew. Flight left on time"
Pros: "Excellent service from staff on the flight"
Cons: "Long line-up in Frankfurt at Lufthansa Passport control . Could probably open up the third counter and not just one Business and one Economy? First meal ( Turkey) had something in it that blowded me up all the way to Vancouver! Not sure if it was the vegetables or?? Not nice if you can't walk around and also not great for your neighbor to the right and left. I usually don't experience this with my food that I cook or choose."
Pros: "All of it"
Pros: "Flight was fine."
Pros: "A lot of drinks"
Cons: "One hour in late"
Cons: "2 hours delay. Bad food"
Cons: "Will newer agan fly business with Lufthansa!! It's not business at all just regular econom seats with short leg room and casual service. They should be sorry for that kind of business!!"
Pros: "Im very happy with the costumer service of lufhtanza my mom who doesn't speak English or german flew for the first time with luftanza and she said the staff were helpful and she was satisfied with the service"
Pros: "all the flights were on time, the service was wonderfull"
Pros: "Efficient and well-run operation. Professional and attentive flight crew."
Cons: "Extremely loud engine noise in Economy Cabin. Concern on impact on hearing during transatlatic flight. Crampt seating."
Pros: "I would like to commend the crew on this flight for the way they handled a medical emergency during the flight. I thought that the brew reacted and handled this emergency in a calm, professional and dignified manner. Very little information was conveyed to the passengers aside from what was necessary. I thought that was very dignified and respectful of the circumstance. The flight was diverted from Munich to Vienna, the affected individual was evacuated and the flight was back in the air shortly thereafter. I would like to say Very Well Done to the crew and airline for the training they received and handled the situation."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Economy class felt like a punishment. It seemed like I was forever being reminded that the business and first class passengers were treated better. I'm not talking about perks like free champagne, but asking the economy class to enter the airplane from the rear using a lower standard stairwell ramp seems bizarre."
Pros: "Good flight good seats smooth ride."
Cons: "Boarding was not organized."
Cons: "Missed connection along with about 25 others due to the delay getting to Lisbon (no reasons given)."
Cons: "The seating was poor. The armrest did not go up even so I and another passenger tried hard. I then had to climb over it to be able to get to the washroom at 86 that was not the easiest and again it should not happen regardless. Otherwise I was treated well.I was a wheel chair passenger for medical reason. Thanks Helen"
Cons: "Luftansa gives up and goes out of business."
Pros: "This was the first time flying with Lufthansa. The overal service was excellent. I would give 5 stars."
Cons: "I am tall and the seats are too close together."
Pros: "Good flight good staff. Captain explained the route which is nice."
Cons: "No negatives"
Pros: "First Time on Lufthansa and came away extremely impressed. I'm a million miler on Delta so I know a little about flying a mainline carrier. Lufthansa blew me away with the level of service and friendliness. It was a short (90 minute) flight but they still offered a free breakfast sandwich along with the beverages. Flight Attendants can switch from German to English without hesitation and were very professional. Look forward to flying with them again."
Cons: "Can't think of anything"
Cons: "Flight didn't even come and was treated like trash at the airport i stayed 10 hours for nothing but to be told to go home thats all we have to say to you very terrible"
Cons: "Wifi on klm"
Pros: "Crew were excellent"
Cons: "Old aircraft. Uncomfortable seats in economy. Entertainment screens old and almost impossible to watch - watched my iPhone! No mobile phone charger."
Pros: "Flight and the crew!"
Cons: "Staff at the airport pushing you to upgrade to first class but not making it clear only the first trip from Athens to Amsterdam which the first class uses same uncomfortable seats as the economy to pay extra 130 euros ridiculous airfrance stuff! I should have flown all the way to NYC first class!!!"
Pros: "Good amount of space on the plane, lots of movies to watch, good food and drink."
Pros: "Great airline"
Cons: "Crew members in Amsterdam were very rude and disrespectful"
Cons: "The plane is so old..,"

Pros: "Helpful and kind crew"
Cons: "I wish there was WiFi"
Pros: "The earphones for out two seats only worked intermittently, but the Purser, Lee-Ann handled it professionally and pleasantly. That was the only disappointment in an otherwise pleasant flight"
Cons: "The earphones could have worked!"
Cons: "If only there was a way to be able to lie down and sleep - you would be pioneers in aviation"
Cons: "The check in desk was late opening & the carry on luggage size was smaller than advertised on their website, so it had to be put in the hold. Open on time to prevent less stress to travelers & give more accurate information about cabin luggage."
Pros: "the crew was nice"
Cons: "Seat confort on long flights, leg rooms,"
Pros: "great crew and comfortable flight."
Cons: "sceens in the plane to show map and direction of travel"
Cons: "Faultless handling of weather delay, causing missed connection and flight transfer. A well oiled machine, thank you."
Cons: "None of our 4 checked bags arrived with us. This was despite ample connection time (2+ hours) in Amsterdam."
Pros: "Nothing to mention"
Cons: "Crew was rude when I asked if there was a vegetarian option for the snack. I did request special meals for the trip. Even if they did not have a vegetarian option, they don't need to be rude!! Boarding was ridiculous. we were supposed to form a line and wait. Would have been a lot better if they boarded by seat numbers. Also they made me check in my fairly small and light carry on bag resulting in its contents arriving broken!"
Pros: "Staff very pleasant"
Cons: "Evening snack was not the greatest breakfast was pretty food"
Pros: "The seats seemed to have more space on this plane which was nice."
Cons: "It felt strange that the crew members completely skipped over me when serving lunch and drinks. At least something as basic as water should be given to all passengers."
Pros: "Interior of the plane was clean. Smooth landing."
Cons: "Pilot did not avoid turbulence"
Pros: "The cabin crew was so kind, efficient, and attentive. All meals and snacks were delicious."
Pros: "Nice to have a wrap for the snack."
Cons: "Would have preferred boarding by row - back of the flight first so would have been more organized."
Pros: "I enjoyed the attention to detail and comfort. Helped to make the flight easier to handle."
Pros: "Friendly attendants. Decent food, and frequent snacks and beverages."
Cons: "No charging ports for electronic devices."
Pros: "Nice flight, nice crew, and a nice experience."
Cons: "Unaccompanied minor flying to Lisbon overnight. Bag was lost. No real effort to assist. Bags of unaccompanied minor should be treated with priority."
Pros: "Short flight with good communication."
Cons: "Nil to complain."
Pros: "On time"
Pros: "Seats were comfortable"
Cons: "Flight was delayed by 2 hours. Could have gone to Amsterdam and come back in that time"
Pros: "Comfortable seats. Warm plane with happy staff."
Cons: "Maybe a second sandwich option for food, not everyone likes cheese."
Pros: "Only thing we liked was the fact that we were able to get onto our flight at all..."
Cons: "Was not informed that checking in online is the only way to secure a seat. So, regardless of whether you book your tickets 3 months in advance or the day before, you're not actually guaranteed a seat unless you check in online. We weren't told this until we were at the airport and checked in there that we might not be able to get our pre-booked in advance flight because of over-booking from KLM. We then had to wait and see if there were seats available when boarding. Luckily, there were, but we were not sat together. Not the greatest start to our first holiday together as a couple. We were told that if there weren't seats available, they'd pay for us to get to another airport to fly out, which would have meant a huge delay on the only time off we'd get together this year and have to rearrange our pre-booked and pre-paid living arrangements for the week. All because there wasn't a lot of emphasis on the need to check in online before hand. You'd think if someone checked in at the airport, that would be more of a guarantee that they'd be flying with you that day, but apparently not. Definitely not impressed or happy with this part of the KLM experience. This is the only company that we've had this problem with, they should make it clearer that it is essential to check in online."
Pros: "Clean airplane, friendly crew, no rush, nice snacks for a short one hour flight. Just generally a positive experience."
Pros: "Nice seats, comfortable."
Cons: "Again, no aisle seat for SkyTeam Gold member. Also, my baggage was lost. First bag arrived a day late, second after I had left Billund and it was six days before the bag with my clothes reached me. I was told I will have 100 euro credit for clothing, but in the winter and for 6 days, this was not even close to the amount I needed for clothing and necessities, to have my time here."
Pros: "Excellent experience with the cabin crew."
Cons: "Seats on the 777 were too narrow. This 777 had a 3-4-3 seating arraignment, it would have been better with a 3-3-3, similar to a 787 configuration. With the current layout, even with an aisle seat, I was sitting in the aisle. And I am not a large person! The flight was full, so use the 787 and two daily non-stops. For a twelve hour flight, the food was only Okay, could have been better and with a better selection. Meal timing was poor."
Pros: "787 is a great airplane. The 3-3-3 seat configuration leaves enough seat width to be just comfortable in coach."
Pros: "Entertainment was good, and crew was very nice and accommodating. Flight was very comfortable and smooth."
Cons: "The food was okay, not that great."
Pros: "Crew was courteous and polite! Entertainment system had some great movies at no additional cost."
Cons: "Poor communication between delta, KLM and Air France meant that I couldn’t check in online and get a digital boarding pass. Furthermore I couldn’t use the check-in kiosks because my name was listed as Reidmr instead of Reid, which meant that my boarding pass did not match my passport. Overall this caused unnecessary delays that were compounded by the fact that I couldn’t use my TSA precheck. My main problem on the plane was that I had to struggle to get water served to me. It’s always so dry on planes and I would have liked to be able to get more than one tiny glass of water at a time. Also, would have loved a window at my window seat. Plus no WIFI!?"
Cons: "Service from airline host Poorly maintained plane Bad food Old entertainment"
Pros: "The sandwiches were simple yet just the right touch, on all four flights."
Pros: "That we didn't crash"
Cons: "Being delayed and missing my connecting flight. No entertainment onboard (for hours and hours)."

Cons: "There is not anything to complain about besides the usual discomfort of travel."
Pros: "staff hospitality, cleanness of the cabin and toilet and punctuality of the flight"
Cons: "lack of meal options"

Pros: "Great smooth flight staff was pleasant and the overall experience was fantastic."
Pros: "The crew were very friendly and accomodating, plane was clean and boarding amd disembarking was efficiently handled."
Cons: "55 minute delay was not welcome."
Cons: "With skyteam elite status cannot select free upgrade from economy to premium economy unless it is 30hrs before boarding for this code share which is actually a KLM flight"
Pros: "Excellent service"
Cons: "Having to pay extra to pick a seat prior to check-in. I didn't, and got a decent seat anyway."
Pros: "Crew was attentive"
Cons: "The seats are awfully tight and no padding The plane was delayed for almost 3 hours while we were on it because of some air conditioning issue"
Cons: "Not much. Outside influences not under their control"
Cons: "Everything is made easy...."
Pros: "Simple checking with baggage etc"
Cons: "More leg room"
Cons: "It was freezing on the plane everyone had hoods up and coats on."
Pros: "Seats and legroom very good for a budget airline. Crew very good."

Cons: "Seats don't recline"
Pros: "Crew were good, no issues. Flight was prompt and easy."
Cons: "A few too many announcements and promotions for buying stuff on board."
Pros: "Comfortable flight"
Cons: "Alanya airport puts you through security 3 times. If they want to do this at the gate including hand searching they need to employ more staff to speed up the process. Food and drink at the airport is expensive"
Pros: "That it's over"
Pros: "Nice plane and well trained crew, will fly them again, without any doubt"
Pros: "Boarding well organised, cfrew friendly."
Cons: "Announcements too frequent and very loud."
Cons: "Missed the need to add luggage to both inward and outbound journey, that got excessively charged on the way back. Have never had to select luggage allowances both ways, clearly we want to bring our luggage back! + why should it cost twice as much to add to the hold when paying at the airport, rip of"
Pros: "Amazing customer service from the moment we arrived at the airport, throughout the checkin process and on the plane. Really extraordinarily amazing given that it was the Saturday of half-term. Cannot praise highly enough."
Cons: "I canot think of any single fault at all."
Pros: "Crew are always pleasant and know how to smile"
Cons: "Air con started out super hot then went rather chilly!?"
Pros: "Great boarding decent legroom"
Cons: "Good all round - no entertainment but it’s short haul so expected"
Pros: "This plane was alot older then other planes owned but the cabin was still new, legroom brill, clean cabin and excellent staff. We were kept fully informed of the extra safety procedures needed in regards to de-ice the plane before takeoff."
Cons: "Would have rathered a new plane, and to land ontime but only 20 mins late."
Pros: "Cheap and easy."
Cons: "The announcements were a bit “organised tour” excitement which was odd. Also not allowed tablets during take off and landing which was a bit behind the ball compared to other carriers."
Pros: "Comfortable, friendly service on the plane."
Cons: "Connection issues from previous flight. Connecting ground staff didn't seem to have their game together. In all fairness, it was after midnight and I don't think it was connected to the Aegean airline. More like airport security."
Cons: "Could not check in online"
Pros: "Late at the airport but they managed to get us all through and boarded on time"
Cons: "Too many steps especially at Birmingham"
Pros: "Crew was good, boarding was good. On time."
Cons: "All food/drinks are chargeable, but they will not accept credit cards without a raise number on the front so I couldn't use my travel credit card and then I couldn't use my debit card because they said "often the debit card will not run through while in the air"...fortunately I had some Euros."
Pros: "The crew were helpful and friendly"
Cons: "Nothing to report. Very efficient"
Pros: "Left on time. Arrived on time. Clean. Everything worked. Competent and friendly crew. Great price. Yes, we definitely would fly with Jet2 again."
Cons: "Really packed us in. Crew kept on offering items for sale. But, it is a deeep discount carrier so we were not surprised."
Pros: "Good flight (when we eventually got airborne. Friendly cabin crew"
Cons: "Last minute gate changes at Heraklion meant lots of confusion & frustration plus late departure. Edinburgh airport is a joke since its recent upgrades, plane sent to wrong bay caused delays getting off then baggage handlers are slow beyond useless, seem to think they are doing everyone a big favour & will do things when it suits them. No help or information from airport staff who promptly vanished at the 1st sign of trouble. Edinburgh airport really needs to have a long hard look at itself."
Pros: "Nice clean plane. Short flight good check in, comfortable seat. Nice staff"
Cons: "No entertainment"
Pros: "The convenience of the route"
Cons: "The thumping 'music' as we boarded, the over-jolly announcements which treated the passengers as if they were all mentally deficient or poorly educated. The information they conveyed was clear and comprehensive and obviously, safety instructions are crucial, but the format and tone of delivery were so patronising I thought they were a parody. They also assumed everybody was coming back to the UK after their holiday - the flight had a good proportion of French passengers and some of us don't live in the UK. Make the announcements more neutral. I fly with a lot of no-frills lines, especially Ryanair and EasyJet as well as the larger carriers such as Air France, BA, SAS and Air Canada, but I have never come across such grating and irritating announcements. I will think twice before booking another flight with them rather than endure this again."
Pros: "I actually found the seat quite comfortable, compared with other low-cost airlines. I was glad that i could take my hand luggage onto the plane, allowing me to exit without having to wait at the carousel. There was plenty of space in the overhead locker. I liked the sense of humour in the announcements - it proves that even serious things can be said in a pleasant manner"
Pros: "Last minute booking from Alicante, amazing seat allocation and the flight arrived 35 minutes early."
Cons: "Shame Leeds wasn’t ready for us, took far too long to access the terminal and queue at passport control was a joke. Landed feeling great, now I’m ticked off."
Pros: "Another excellent flight on Jet2 , 35 minute delay but handled with such relaxed professionalism by the crew. Highley recommend *****"
Pros: "excellent legroom"
Cons: "Nothing. Superb flight."
Pros: "On time."
Cons: "Charge to ensure you keep your free hand luggage in the cabin. Security delays at Belfast."
Pros: "First holiday with Jet2 and really impressed. My only tip would be to book a meal, as pre-booked meals are served first and the non-booked sandwiches ran out by our row. Will fly with them again."
Pros: "Boarding was relatively painless. Although as always we seemed to end up in the crèche part of the cabin."
Cons: "Having to switch off all electronics while the seatbelt sign is on believe bags in the last century. Even a kindle! This is just ridiculous."
Pros: "New plane. Great legroom. Generous luggage allowance. Pleasant crew."
Pros: "Have drag A1 do great space, all in timd"
Pros: "Everything, staff the whole package faultless, well done !!!"
Pros: "First time iv used jet2 and I will again"
Pros: "Great flight, super low price. Overall great value. Also the cabin staff were great. The flight was quite empty so we had a bit of a blether"
Cons: "Nothing was wrong with the flight, aircraft or service. Only one star for food cos I didn't order, and for entertainment as there was none. Wasn't expecting for £80"
Cons: "temperature too cold on return flight from Faro, especially having been in hot weather for 16 days"
Cons: "Delay due to incompetence at Venice airport"
Pros: "- Flight was on time, yet they pad the timetable to make it difficult to be late. - Aircraft was relatively clean considering this was its 4th flight of the day, and the fact it's 29 years old. - More laid back then EZY and FR as they allow a reasonable turnaround time."
Cons: "- Seat assignments don't always make sense, we were split up even though there was an empty row behind us. - Shortly after takeoff passengers moved into the extra legroom seats without paying. - Constant attempt to sell things to you, scratch cards, overpriced drinks etc."
Pros: "On one of the busiest weekends for flying it was perfect..... the plane the staff and the flight"
Cons: "The food was expensive and not great"
Pros: "Great service and food and smooth all the wsy"
Cons: "BiokAggrevation beforehand trying to book guaranteed cabin baggage"
Pros: "Convenient flights. Friendly staff. Excellent price."
Cons: "Older aircraft means electronic devices can only be used while cruising. Long queue for bag drop due to many flights leaving at once."
Pros: "Friendly, polite crew and clean aircraft both ways."
Cons: "Poor entertainment and lack of holder on seat in front to hold magazines, phone, iPad etc."
Cons: "Our flight out was delayed by a couple of hours and the return flight was delayed at least an hour. It was clear skies, no tusre why. Also, after having paid to check our bag, the bag didn't arrive at our destination because it was removed from the plane, along with 26 others. We didn't get it back for 5 days, just in time for our holiday to be over."
Pros: "Staff and process"
Cons: "No entertainment, pre booking hot food"
"Always exceptional service"
Cons: "Staff Curtsy and overall gestures!!"
Pros: "Crew attentive. The delay was due to airport conditions in FCO, cannot be blamed on Air France."
Cons: "Food. For a 2-hour plus flight, from 11am to 1:30pm, we got 20gr pretzel sticks. This is ridiculous. Don't pretend you are not low-cost! Formerly, before the Joon failed (thank God) venture, Air France had real sandwiches around that time of the day on that line."
Cons: "Boarding (by bus) was a total chaos. I had to stand for about 50 minutes, either on the crowded bus or, after climbing with great difficulty three flights of stairs to a high jet-bridge (I am 76), standing there forever with 200 persons waiting to get access to the plane. Totally unacceptable. They started the boarding process early (50 minutes before departure), but passengers were allowed to actually board the plane at the time it was supposed to take off."
Cons: "I dint like the way you guys sold me the tickets with only one bag to check in with when I went to the airport I’ve got to pay 58 pounds extra I was not happy with you guys so next time you have to tell your customers before they buy the tickets that’ it’s one bag check"
Cons: "the tray was broken and the water felt all over. the flight was 1 hr delayed. All of us stood the 1 hr waiting to know what's next. We could sit."
Cons: "See above."
Cons: "Couldn’t understand announcements"
Cons: "Not to be late ,and not to loose my luggege"
Pros: "Intranet meant I could watch movies on my iPad"
Cons: "Seats are very uncomfortable"
Cons: "There was no entertainment and there was a lot of annoyed passengers and flight attendants"
Pros: "Crew was very nice and the food was excellent"
Cons: "wine selection divider between seats"
Cons: "Arrived 5 hours late"
Pros: "Crew was nice movie selection was good."
Cons: "Plane was late which caused a 5 hour layover in Paris CDG. Food not very good. Entertainment system clumsy to operate."
Cons: "they lost our luggage very inconvenient"
Pros: "The plain was ok, the crew really nice and attentive. The only “problem” would be the food, mostly for the breakfast that was awful."
Pros: "En deux mots, tout était médiocre, avion, « nourriture » (si on appeler ça comme ça) même les hôtesses travaillaient avec une sale gueule.. Très déçu d’Air France"
Cons: "Le capitain et l’aterrisage"
Pros: "Flight attendants were very nice"
Cons: "Didn’t have the meal I ordered Got in 30 min early but no gate for us. We waited over 80min on tarmac to deplane I paid extra for an exit seat but there was no indication when I did that there would be walls for armrests and that made it very uncomfortable for me"
Pros: "The entertainment screen was a small 4" screen. The movie selection was outdated. The screen in my seat did not work. Flight attendant said she would "call to have it reset" but it never worked. Fortunately, there was an adjacent empty seat that I moved to on my own initiative and without the flight attendant offering a seat change."
Cons: "I did not like that i was in the bulkhead and there was not sufficient overhead storage for us. The bin was only big enough for 1 backpack. 2 of the 3 of us in that row had to go 2 rows back to store our luggage. This is very inconvenient when deboarding because I have to wait for many others to pass before I get a chance to walk towards the back of the plane to get my luggage."
Pros: "Very good male crew member. Pilot genuinely apologetic for the delay."
Cons: "After running due to a 1 hr 10 min change over between flights boarding didn't prioritise anyone but I got on fine. Only to be told at the departure time that there was a problem with the baggage hold and we were delayed. In total 50 minutes late leaving. Breakfast a simple brioche with nothing to add to it."
Pros: "The airplane was modern, and the crew very good. Nice, service oriented and in general trying to make the flight experience as good as possible."
Cons: "The flight was very late. I lost my connection. My bag was lost and unable to recover it so far (after more than 24 hours). About to initiate the next leg of the trip with no clothes or any idea if my luggage will be recovered."
Pros: "Sometimes you get surprised, with this specific flight, we had an excellent young and perfect cabin crew. Thanks, Joon!"
Pros: "Only the cabin crew was good."
Cons: "It was the worst flight that I ever had, the seats are extremely uncomfortable, no TV, the food was terrible."
Cons: "The flight was late, real late."
Pros: "Courteous crew"
Pros: "The service"
Cons: "Its been a week. My trip has ended. I still do not have my bags. Terrible customer service."
Cons: "The room between seats is unbearable."
Pros: "Crew was friendly and professional, fresh croissant and hot chocolate on my short flight. As many airlines charge now for any and all food items it was nice to again experience fast and efficient food and beverage service without the tedious hassle of ordering and paying. I’d gladly fly Air France again. First time, but likely not the last."
Cons: "Like all airlines , the seats could use a few more inches of space, even two would be nice."
Pros: "Crew was professional and friendly. Plane was clean. And food was served quickly without the hassle of ordering from a menu and paying. And it was delicious. Best airline food I’ve had in a long time. The chocolate dessert was incredible. And a coffee to go with it. Made a three hour flight very pleasant."
Cons: "All airlines need to remove a row of seats and give everyone just a bit more legroom."
Pros: "Whenever I travel air France I get a reminder of what customer service looks like on a flight. Incredible crew, great experience"
Pros: "All of the crew were friendly and the flight was on time."
Cons: "No problems"
Pros: "Arrived on time"
Cons: "Cattle car accommodations"
Pros: "You can't go wrong with delta when it comes to customer satisfation. It's the primary reason I'm okay with paying extra money for delta flights"
Pros: "All crew I interacted with was great, friendly, and helpful."
Cons: "Flight was late. Boarding very slow. Entertainment was ok by today's standards. Each seat had a display, but movie selection was not great. For a French airline I was looking forward to breakfast -- maybe some nice pastries or at least a decent croissant with jam. None such. It was disappointing. Meals were not impressive either, but the complimentary wine was good."
Pros: "The Crew was the only thing that stuck out. Associates had Way more patience than i."
Cons: "Late takeoff, priority seating happens same time as general boarding, two pieces of lost luggage"
Pros: "Great food, pleasant crew."
Cons: "Comfort economy okis seats are wide, with good legroom, but did not recline and hard as a rock. Entertainment system hard to use, finding movies very tedious."
Pros: "The flight crew was excellent. My husband and I flew economy and I saw the crew keep passengers well fed (several meals and snacks) and were attentive to everyone's needs and all done with a smile. I thought the hot towels for cleansing our hands before meals was a very nice touch!"
Pros: "The boarding process was smooth and the crew friendly. Flight ran on time."
Cons: "Unloading the baggage took over 90 minutes, and there was no explanation for the delay and nobody from Air France in sight on the ground in Boston."
Pros: "Efficient check-in."
Cons: "It was raining in Prague so I can understand that luggage is going to get wet. But when we opened our luggage at least half of our clothes were wet. It would seem that the luggage sat out for quite a while prior to departure for that much soaking of clothes. Fortunately we are staying in Paris for a few days and can get our clothes dried out."
Cons: "Delay over an hour"
Pros: "The crew was very comfortable speaking two languages and friendly. They also had air conditioning! This was great because it was strangely hot in Paris and we were sweating profusely. And our last air france experience we were so hot and it was aweful. Even though it was like an hour and a half flight they still served us sandwiches ,really good."
Pros: "movies were great, watched a lot of them food, while nothing to write home about, was at least tasty and not inedible the staff was great, friendly, welcoming, hard working loved that we could have wine and snacks"
Cons: "we had paid for the exit row and had a luxurious amount of room. But when we tried to sleep, our fellow passengers came and stood at our feet and talked so loudly that we could not possibly sleep. They stayed there for more than an hour. Would have loved for the staff to maybe ask them to tone it down, if not move."
Pros: "All female crew in the cockpit - awesome."
Cons: "Non reclining seats"
Pros: "The crew was friendly."
Cons: "One of the engine was smoking just as we took off. This should have been checked beforehand that it was working correctly. The pilot missed the first landing, was going too fast and had to turn around. We circled the London eye 3 times. When we were actually landing it was extremely bumpy and on the way down the plane was tilting back and forth a lot. They were going too fast when we landed as well, I have never been in a plane that has landed so poorly, and I have travelled a lot and used many different airlines. It was worse than any budget airline I've been on. As we were driving back to the terminal, the pilot stopped short for some reason. Things were not explained clearly. I will not be flying with airfrance again and will be sure to spread the word of this awful experience."
Pros: "Boarding was fast and efficient. Flight attendant staff were friendly and very courteous."
Cons: "Vegetarian food choices are too limited. Snack and beverage availability on long flights like this are too few and far between."
Pros: "Ticket price"
Cons: "Long check in wait in Dubai. Food was shocking - inedible!"
Pros: "I liked Air Lingis. The crew and entertainment set up."
Cons: "I had to RUN to get to this gate. And the number changed. I was the 2nd to last person on. International flights should have a small area to stretch and loosen up. Being large and stuffed into a small seat for so long is not good."
Pros: "The crew was extremely efficient in everything they did. Beverage service was super but many of us didn't know we could get our own from the front of the plane."
Cons: "The seats lean too far back and are hard to get in and out of. There's very little space for anyone in the middle seats to move, much less climb out from. Oh, it was never clear to the passengers that anyone could get up and get drinks from up front during the flight."
Pros: "Crew was great!"
Pros: "Comfort. Ease of travel."
Cons: "Inflight shopping range"
Pros: "The crew was as amazing as they were 9 years ago when I flew Aer Lingus. The plane was very clean and comfortable. The entertainment that we could choose from very good. Something for everyone was provided."
Cons: "One thing that I would like to see improved is for the announcements to be spoken slower than they were. The announcements were so quick that I could not understand what was being said. This should be an easy fix so I have no worries ."
Pros: "They provided a lot of leg room and we arrived about an hour ahead of schedule."
Pros: "No problems"
Pros: "Super friendly staff"
Cons: "Flight left late and landed over 45 minutes late. No support for those that were left late for connections and no allowing those to de-board first. No Aer Lingus staff in the airport when the luggage screw up from Madrid was discovered."
Pros: "Overall, the airline is nice with decent entertainment and food"
Cons: "Every time I book with orbitz, even months in advance, I get seated in the last seat of the plane so I am in the toilet"
Pros: "The crew was very helpful and has provided lots of water now and then, wich was really relieving on the long distance. The seats were quite comfortable, the food quite all right."
Cons: "The flight was delayed wich caused a lot of stress bevor, while and after it, 'cause of the connection flight, that we were afraid to miss. We've got the connection at the end, but the luggage didn't come with us, so a luggage investigation was needed. A lot of paperwork and stress, hopefully I'll at least get it back soon. Entertainment wasn't available for several hours, it was an error in the system or something. Some of the seats have had it, others have had not. It took them hours to fix it."
Cons: "Delayed, they even charge for water, no entertainment"
Pros: "I thought the staff were more friendly this time around."
Pros: "Non stop service to Seattle; going through US Customs in Dublin."
Pros: "On time and friendly"
Pros: "Cabin crew"
Cons: "Pilot failed to inform us why we were sitting on the tarmac for 40 mins before taking off."
Pros: "Overall the flight was great but the seating was extremely tight which made it hard to get comfortable. Not sure what type of airplane this was. Our return flight was much roomier."
Pros: "Cabin crew very professional."
Cons: "Stop making the seats smaller, narrower, and closer together, food was awful."
Pros: "Aer lingus took good care of us, and put us up at a hotel."
Cons: "Could not get a replacement flight and had to book with another airline and different route. Hoping the refund process will go smoothly."
Pros: "Wheelchair assistance was very good"
Cons: "Long distance to boarding gate vis bus and walk. Late taking off so late arriving"
Pros: "The crew was cheerful and the food was decent. It's a nice option for going from Europe to the US. Going through US customs in Dublin is much more convenient than waiting in line for 2+ hours in America after a 10+ hour flight."
Cons: "Boarding seemed a bit chaotic. Everyone had already lined up before they even started boarding business class. The seats and the on-demand IFE are a bit dated."
Cons: "Space was so limited it was just ridiculous"
Pros: "Used the self check-in and an agent offered to help. She was fantastic!"
Cons: "Cattle call boarding.... No system. We prepaid 80 Euro for two carry-on size bags because they were slightly over the 10 kilo limit and then they announced at the gate that if carton bags were over size or weight, they would check the free. Really!!!!"
Pros: "We arrived minutes earlier."
Cons: "During take off the toilet paper and towels in the bathroom next to me had fallen all over the floor and needed to be cleaned by a flight attendant. But instead they just locked the door which is obviously one of the few bathrooms offered for over 100+ people on an international flight!"
Cons: "It was like squeezing everyone into a cattle truck and airport crew double book seats of a few passengers on a full flight so there was confusion on board"
Pros: "The flight left almost on time which was good and landed a little over 20 minutes late which was ok."
Cons: "I had a window seat and felt very crammed. Also, we had to wait close to an hour for our luggage to come through. That was most annoying."
Pros: "Not much paid for prority boarding but we were bussed to the flight in Faro and this made prority boarding nul and voidboarding"
Pros: "Dublin airport easy to transfer Price was top I did not eat the lunch"
Pros: "Seats comfortable even with my disabilities."
Cons: "Assistance seats all taken by able bodies. No room for disabled. Not enuf staff for volume of disabled rendering a delay to our flight E1 273."
Pros: "The seats were incredibly comfy."
Cons: "They kept the cabin lights on throughout the entire flight, so it was impossible to sleep. My rating for entertainment and food is not really applicable because the flight was short and didn't have either."
Pros: "comfortable flight."
Cons: "no vegetarian options for meal, unless arranged ahead of time...which was not an option."
Pros: "Overall very. I was there when the check station was down caused delays. But staff were very helpful."
Cons: "Getting through security check very slow. Not sure what the answer is but need to be looked urgently. Otherwise I enjoyed everything.. P.kehoe..sunnybank Farm.. Portersize.. Grange con.. Co. Kildare"
Pros: "everything was good as usual"
Cons: "check-in desk couldn't check me through to my connecting flight with Virgin Atlantic so I had 15mins once landed in Heathrow to get through passport security and checkin at Virgin Atlantic desk.... I'm young and fit so was able for the dash but elderly or familys would not have made the connecting flight in that time"
Pros: "What is there not to like: The crew are courteous and caring, the planes are clean and the price is right!"
Cons: "The check-in in Duesseldorf was subcontracted and staffed by an uninformed agent which led to a lot of confusion and inconvenience in Dublin. Someone like that does not reflect well on Aer Lingus which I definitely recommend otherwise!"
Pros: "I liked doing immigration in Dublin rather than Chicago, even though the process was lengthy. We couldn't understand why, having done the automated system, the process was virtually repeated at the immigration desk. Queues were very long."
Cons: "As above plus my husband's seat arm was broken. The inflight entertainment system was a joke. Back of seat screens fitted but not working. Very distant ceiling screens and only one working before the whole system failed. Not acceptable on a long flight."
Cons: "The map feature wasn't working on the flight and the sound quality for media was very poor and sporadic"
Cons: "No USB ports"
Pros: "The on-screen entertainment as good and easy and free. Nothing was complimentary - not even water! Cabin was very clean. Captain was quite cordial and informative."
Cons: "The sound quality on the entertainment system was horrible - they provide cheap earbuds that are horrible and you can't use your own because of non-standard plugs."
Cons: "Aer Lingus lost my luggage and has not helped to find it. POOR customer service. NO answers and NO help in any way. No one calls back or has concern that your luggage is lost. Still waiting to hear from them!!!!!"
Pros: "Flight was delayed 40 mins because Aer Lingus was unable to meet departure time and Air Traffic Control couldn't fit them into the departing flights rotation outside of their originally scheduled time. As a result, the airplane was stuck at the gate for 30 minutes. The rest we spent taxiing to what seemes the furthest end of the airport. The airplane hadn't been cleaned in a while as was evident by extremely sticky and smelly tray tables in our row."
Cons: "Aer Lingus personnel were incompetent and inefficient. Most were more interested in chatting with coworkers than actually assisting customers. Seats had not been assigned despite my previous assurance from EA customer service folks, and special meal requests for my wife and child had not been added to our booking record. Calling Aer Lingus almost always requires you to hold 30 minutes before anyone answers. Again, I suspect they are just as disinterested in helping customers as the ground personnel."
Pros: "Loved being on a flight for holiday, and knowing I wasn't being overcharged for needless frills."
Cons: "I don't remember if they served a drink, I know things were for sale. But that seems to be the European way."
Pros: "The flight was on time"
Cons: "There was one person at the counter, the bus transportation was awful and very hot. We boarded and waited 30 minutes without air going to the plane. No entertainment. The plane was dirty and garbage was left in the seat back pockets."
Cons: "It was supposed to be a British airways flight but it ended up being an aer lingus flight."
Pros: "On time, Boarding very good. Crew were brilliant, especially when they removed an intoxicated woman who was harassing the family seated next to me."
Cons: "Didn't eat dinner on flight as it came too early for a flight at that time. I ate in airport. But the breakfast was just OK & comfort I guess is par for the course these days, seats on economy fares just seem to get narrower & narrower. As far as the entertainment system it just didn't work properly (just as it didn't on the flight over) and the choice of films, TV and current affaires was pretty bad."
Pros: "Not much"
Pros: "On time, not overcrowded, straightforward flight."
Pros: "Both British airline and Aer Lingus service was 5star. and kayak did its job they made reservation super easy."
Cons: "No veg food. Crew was not accomidating."
Cons: "3 hour delay without good communication"
Pros: "I was comfortable as far as temperature and smoothness of flight. I was surprised to have tasty food and two meals!"
Cons: "I was really uncomfortable with no leg room. The woman in front of me really hurt my knee when she let her seat back crash into my knee ( I had to lift my leg with my hands and try to fit my foot down in a tiny space in order to cross my legs. Trying to get up to get out of the seat was extremely awkward. The worst experience was online booking. It was difficult to understand and impossible to change my seat. I even called."
Pros: "Aer lingus was good and helpful"
Cons: "I don't have my bag"
