Pros: "Being on time"
Cons: "Nothing you guys did great thank you so much."

Pros: "The crew was so kind and amazing. They definitely made our flight great!"
Cons: "The entertainment wasn’t working for most of the flight. We only got about an hour and a half of entertainment"

Pros: "Great crew, good in-flight movies. Good food."
Cons: "Wifi connectivity was poor for most of the flight. Plane was very hot it was difficult to sleep."

Pros: "Entertainment and helpful staff"
Cons: "Had worst seat on plane on outward because I didn't know I could pick a seat free of charge before online checkin This could be a lack of communication on Kayak/Last Minute.com as opposed to Virgin"

Pros: "The seats reclined at a good pitch and were very comfortable. The crew were friendly and service was good."
Cons: "I understand that on the night flight, they were trying to keep the lights up for dinner service, but it prevented my toddler from being able to sleep and thus made for a difficult rest of the journey."

Pros: "Most of it was of a reasonable standard."
Cons: "Plane was full"

Pros: "Crew were great! Neck cushions on chair aren’t adjustable and not comfortable."

Pros: "The crew where awesome and catered to every need and requirement."
Cons: "need to have a slightly deeper seat pitch in premium economy to allow people out without having to wake each other up. Especially on night flights."

Pros: "The crew was maybe average, that was still the best point."
Cons: "Extremely tight space. The food was almost inedible. Awful."

Pros: "The crew were very attentive, they tried hard to help me with comfort, drinks etc. I didnt have food as it was so good in the Virgin Clubhouse!"
Cons: "The bed! When you flip it flat its rock hard, and the matress they provide is useless! Need foam matress to really make it more comfotable. If the seat reclined another few inches i wouldnt bother flipping it."

Pros: "I like the professional approach of the airline and the staff. Seats are really comfortable and i did not need my sleeping pillow at all as the headrest of my seat was already so comfortable."
Cons: "There is not much which i did not like about this airline. Just like other airlines, now have started feeling that Economy class travellers are being approached with bit biased approach in hospitality though they have major contribution in meeting flight running expenses. All airlines should start considering this fact and improve the overall approach."

Pros: "The flight itself was good! The one from London to Delhi was better than from JFK to London"
Cons: "I wasn’t told about my baggage were being delivered through different airlines the other day!"

Pros: "My flight was canceled and Virgin Atlantic gave us a free room in the hotel Ramada. My next flight was at 18:55 and I asked Virgin Atlantic agent am I allowed to stay in the room until time for my flight comes, he confirmed yes and gave me breakfast, lunch, and dinner voucher. However, next day around 12 I got call from Front Desk that I have to leave my room right away because it's time to chack out and If I want to stay longer I have to pay. I called Virgin Atlantic agancy again and the agent run my information and said to me I can stayin the room longer. After that I called front desk to confirm that but they said they didn't hear anything from Virgin Atlantic and I have to leave the room by 1pm. All of this was really unpleasant!"
Cons: "I didn't like anything. I didn't like the communication between Virgin Atlantic with travelers, communication between Virgin Atlantic and hotel Ramada. Everything was really poorly."

Pros: "The airplane was quiet My seat did not recline, but was seated in a different place where the seat reclined Bathrooms were clean and plenty"
Cons: "The remote controls for the entertainment system That you can’t reach the vents when you have to be buckled"

Pros: "A smoothtrip run by great staff."
Cons: "Thé food was rather stodgy overall."

Pros: "Top glass airline"
Cons: "I lake food and good service crew"

Pros: "Although we were badly delayed the cabin service was excellent in every way. Good meal , cheerful staff and well turned out."

Cons: "I did not like the fact that my seat was between 2 small children that belonged to a family sitting behind me .It was ridiculous to put a stranger on a 10 hour flight with a 3yrar old on one side and a 5 year old on the other"

Pros: "Staff on this flight were excellent"

Pros: "Nothing. The whole experience was horrible."
Cons: "I didn't make it to Siem Reap because the first leg of the trip from IAD to London was cancelled by Virgin Atlantic after it was fully boarded. The excuse was that a flight attendant had food poisoning and was unable to fly and so the entire flight was cancelled. The Virgin team seemed unconcerned and showed NO sense of urgency to try and get people rebooked. Their solution was to rebook everyone on an evening flight the next day. If a passenger was only going to London, that was probably fine. But for people with connecting flights -- or like me with multiple connecting flights -- that wasn't acceptable."

Pros: "Overall comfortable journey"
Cons: "No option to book food option 24 hours before as could check in could not been done earlier than 24 hours before flight. I logged exactly 24 hrs before filled in details which took a few minutes by that time said too late to book special meal."

Cons: "It was terribly late. No one had a clue on when flight would depart."

Cons: "Once In London, we were told by British Airways that was flying us to Nice that Delta had “lost” our infant electronic ticket - It took 1.5h to get new ticket reissued! We missed our connection and had to wait 3 more hours for the next flight - We were somewhat lucky as multiple flights were delayed/cancelled that day - I will avoid using Virgin Atlantic in the future as they need Delta and British operate their flights and this makes it prone to issues like that"

Pros: "The entertainment selection was good, though I didn't need to see the blurb about having vloggers available before every movie. One of the very few airlines to use boarding by rows, which speeds up the boarding process."
Cons: "The legroom is very cramped, pretty difficult to eat your meal with the seat in front reclined. The crew were not very attentive: they completely missed me while I was waving the rubbish on their collection rounds. In the end I had to dump it myself in the toilet bins. The PA system is too loud compared to the rest of the entertainment, had to remove the headphones for each one of them."

Pros: "The crew was the best part of my experience, super nice and accomodating"
Cons: "the wifi had subpar performance"

Pros: "Check in was very smooth with very friendly staff. On board crew was very welcoming and service was excellent."
Cons: "Aircraft configuration of the 787-9 was very poor with 9 seats abreast making the seats very cramped and very poor leg room."

Pros: "Even it was a 12-13hrs flight, I had been my best flight ever in a long flight. Virgin really exeeced my expectations."

Cons: "given milk yoghurt with VGML breakfast"

Pros: "From the check in to the service on board was very good. Staff were polite and respectful."
Cons: "The food was small. There did not serve bread with the meal"

Pros: "I liked that the boarding went really fast and the staff at the JFK airport was super nice and helpful."
Cons: "I didn't like how rude the airplane crew was and how useless and unhappy they were. The sits were very uncomfortable and the food didn't have any taste."

Cons: "One toilet not working"

Pros: "Food"
Cons: "Seat reclining happens even during meal time and landing! I had to ask crew to get passenger in front to put seat back upright during meal time!!! Crew should've noticed themselves and ask the passenger without my prompting!! So annoyed!! I complained to VA too"

Pros: "The food was surprisingly ok and the seats in PE were comfortable, plus there were two USB ports, perfect!"
Cons: "Being woken up to be asked if I wanted to eat, twice! If I wanted to eat, I wouldn't have a sleeping mask on my face, or be asleep! Plus, upper class and premium economy didn't board first."

Pros: "Genuinely pleasant cabin crew, good service, good food."
Cons: "Virgin Upper Class seats are cramped, with very limited stowage space. Turning the seat into a lay flat bed (and returning it seat at the end of the flight) takes some effort--not the simplest of processes. I'm not tall, but my feet protruded into the aisle so I was being disturbed whilst sleeping. Seat is also quite narrow--feels quite claustrophobic when sleeping."

Pros: "Still a more pleasant experience than BA but others have overtaken. Crew make a difference though."
Cons: "Limo service wasn't great in China - asked for address of hotel - a major international chain and confusion on booking details"

Pros: "New Dreamliner aircraft was very comfortable with loads of leg room for a tall person like myself at 1.76m"
Cons: "My seat was directly under the aircon and it was blowing very cold all night which made it quite uncomfortable. Fortunately I had an extra blanket which I could wrap over my head."

Pros: "The boarding and the overall flight experience was quite good."
Cons: "There were movie options such as Sully and Deepwater Horizon, which I think are unsuitable for flights. Overall, the movie options could have had more variety."

Pros: "Smiling and helpful staff Great FREE food and drinks good movies Free goodie bag of travel goods, blanket, pillow etc Free candy for landing descent"
Cons: "Leg room is a little tight"

Pros: "The crew,food and entertainment the food has improved, the ground and flight staffs was very pleasant and helpful"

Pros: "Friendly crew and good food"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Everything except the plane itself"

Pros: "We were late arriving at the airport and the checkin desk people were SO nice putting us through. Otherwise we never would have made it on the flight. Also the extra legroom seats were well worth it!"
Cons: "Nothing!"

Pros: "Staff excellent - Inflight screen useful."
Cons: "Could not do online Check in - apparently as there were 4 separate legs on my Ticket."

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: "At JFK the lounge and service was the best I have encountered."

"FREE WIFI!"

Pros: "Peaceful in cabin"
Cons: "Blanket ,"

Cons: "The social distancing, the cdc is recommending 6 ft but there are passengers directly behind and in grinning us and only one passenger seat empty between 2 people. With covid on the rise, how are you actually doing your party to take care of your customers."

Pros: "Very attentive staff"
Cons: "I have no complaints"

Pros: "Flight was smooth"
Cons: "More leg room"

Cons: "The kid behind me wouldn't stop kicking my seat."

Pros: "Delta’s crew is always the best. On schedule"

Pros: "That I arrived safe."
Cons: "My seat didnt recline my back was in a lot of pain so was my neck. After getting to L.A at 9:52 a.m didn’t get out of the plane till 11:05 then the baggage claim was noted on carousel 2 when in fact it was carousel 3 when I asked a worker she said “I dont know ma’am” waved me off and kept walking. Terrible."

Cons: "Turbulence but no one can help that"

Pros: "New plane with great entertainment arrived 30 mins early"

Pros: "It was very quick! Great service."
Cons: "We need more food options and a little bit more legroom."

Pros: "Crew was friendly, flight ran on time."
Cons: "Can you make the seats any smaller? Cabin space is tight and for people who suffer from claustrophobia it makes it difficult traveling. More cabin space with raising the fares would be great!"

Cons: "Why use old planes for such a long flight? Toilet overflowed, poor quality tv, and only peanuts?"

Pros: "Food and service was amazing."

Pros: "The plane was new and very comfortable. Free entertainment and plug for charging electronics. Love this airline!"

Pros: "Great pilot.."
Cons: "Jam packed too small and the lady flight attendant was to bossy and not that welcoming, she was more interested in being more of a drill sergeant than the comfort of the passengers"

Pros: "Everything was delightful on Delta’s side. Very comfortable. Great service."
Cons: "Why do parents with infants choose to sit in First Class. Crying babies are not appreciated when I’ve paid a lot of money for a First Class experience. The parents in the sears behind me had a child who cried & cried. It was a real spoiler for me. I enjoyed eveeeythinf about the First Class experience except that."

Cons: "They said we would get there on time even though we took off late so that what we told our ride. Ended up about 30 minutes late. Did not like that."

Cons: "Rude staff"

Pros: "boarding process was good food was okay not great not bad entertainment was good flight attendants and service excellent"
Cons: "food could have been better but arriving to destination safely is most important"

Pros: "Crew was good. Flight was early."
Cons: "Poor booking experience."

Pros: "Absolutely nothing."
Cons: "These people are reprehensible. They refused to cancel and refund our tickets when the bride-to-be in a wedding we were supposed to go to was diagnosed with cancer and the wedding was cancelled. Every customer service person we dealt with was uncaring, incompetent, and completely useless."

Pros: "The service on board is always GREAT! in Aeromexico"
Cons: "The flight was canceled and we were put in another flight next night. But the staff in Buenos Aires run the situation chaotically and made mistakes that infuriated many passengers. They need more training to learn how to say "I am sorry" more often and know how to avoid getting into arguments with passengers."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "No air conditioner it's too hot inside"

Pros: "Quick flight."
Cons: "No A/C on the flight. Good thing it was a short one... Crew seemed rather green. Oversold flight; we were the last to board."

Cons: "Flight delayed. Had to hurry to get to my train."

Pros: "Who could ask for more?"
Cons: "N/A"

Pros: "Nothing I can think of right away"
Cons: "Late arrival and late departure. Poor service in having my luggage be connected to my flight. Was under the impression that they would do that after I had called the day prior and once I got to airport they didn't do so"

Pros: "Delta auto-booked me so I didn't have that worry once I arrived in Atlanta."
Cons: "Their system gives too-short layovers so any delay at the point of origin means a risk of missing connections. Many people on my flight were worried about connections because Delta delayed our start by over 30 minutes to "change a switch," whatever that means. Then for passengers with short connection times, they should NEVER be seated in the rear of the plane when it takes 20-30 minutes for the rear-seated passengers. Not very consumer-oriented."

Pros: "Brand new plane"

Cons: "At 6'4", seat access could be better."

Pros: "I would like the airline service to do more for our veterans. Especially the 100% disabled veterans"
Cons: "Seats not comfortable enough"

Pros: "Crew was nice and friendly."
Cons: "Plane was not cleaned well from the previous flight and looked dirty from being overlooked for so long. There was garbage in my seat back pocket and the overhead areas all looked dirty as if they were never cleaned at all."

Cons: "Everything was great"

Pros: "Friendly staff. On time departure and arrival."
Cons: "N/A"

Cons: "Flight cancelled at 8:30 p.m. the night before when we were going to bed at the airport. Ability to get rebooked a nightmare."

Pros: "very attentive service and remarkably tasty food in first class"
Cons: "seat was tight. not much legroom and very claustrophobic when the person in front of me reclined his seat."

Pros: "Excellent service and food."
Cons: "Seat could really use a real footrest instead of the metal bar."

Cons: "Service desk personnel at the gate were very helpful and attentive. The plane was only 1/2-2/3 full, which made boarding quicker. The food was tasty and coffee was great! We were also offered juice twice during the flight. Bathrooms were clean. Since the plane wasn't full, they weren't dirty even at the end of the flight. I brought my own headphones, but the stewards provided them if you need them. My one big complaint was that our seats did not recline, thus making any kind of shut-eye near impossible. Our plane left and hour late, but the pilots stepped on the gas and we got in on time!"

Pros: "Crew was great"
Cons: "N/A"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Meals."

Pros: "Good timing, on time"
Cons: "RUD Stop very disruptive to sleep. Especially with little kids. Connection flight at FRA was very hectic. Asked numerous airport personnel for help and extremely rude, including yelling at us unprovoked. Business lounge had no kids area and very clinical. BA business more warm."

Cons: "More leg room."

Cons: "My bags did not make it to Copenhagen...again! So disppointed and completely put out by this inconvenience"

Pros: "Crew and flight were great. overall excellent experience."

Pros: "Nothing except the crew were very efficient and helpful"
Cons: "Economy seats. No recline. THAT IS NOT BUSINESS CLASS - This is a joke! Putting an empty seat in the middle does not make it business class. Mis-leading seat image when selecting seats. Shows Buisness class large and 2X2 and Economy at 3x3. When you get on the plane it just a one large economy plane with a mark in business "Extra space for you in the middle seat". Food was cold food - no hot food on the whole plane - only hot coffee. I am not paying 4 times the amount to get economy seats that I can get and most probably get lucky and have an empty seat next to me. STAR ALLIANCE IS REALLY GOING DOWN AND LUFTHANSA IS THE WORST. Will never travel Lufthansa business class every again."

Pros: "Boarding pricess"
Cons: "Plane was very cold. We had the last row of seats which meant the flight attendants were making a tremendous amount of noise behind us for the majority of the flight. Crew was not friendly at all. They were more interested in the other crew members than the guests."

Pros: "service was good"
Cons: "seats too small"

Pros: "The Lufthansa service in rebooking."
Cons: "Lost bag- this was after my luggage tag was scanned and I was assured the bag was on the plane. Getting information from Lufthansa about bag status was impossible. Help phones were either busy or never answered. A black hole of no information until the bag arrived 30 hours later. Then a 45 min. At airport to get it back."

Pros: "Never was able to get on flight airport evacuated because of security breach. Mass confusion and unable to get back through security in time to catch flight still waiting to be rebooked."

Pros: "Everything went well. No delays, lines or uncertainty. Great job!"

Pros: "It was run by UA, better seats then Austrian or Lufthansa in Economy. On time. Very efficient."
Cons: "Could not choose seats online,"

Pros: "Good service"

Pros: "Even though the flight was delayed by a couple of hours, Kayak kept us continuously informed about where we stood. Thanks!"

Cons: "Need AC outlets and better WIFI"

Pros: "Comfortable seats. Good snack. Helpful crew. We needed extra assistance and staff were very accommodating."
Cons: "No negative comments."

Pros: "Getting off the plane in the snow is ridiculous. Lufthansa needs to use the jetways."

Cons: "We landed an hour later than planned with no warning, I missed my connecting flight."

Cons: "Boarding and take off was very delayed for a flurry ,this delayed my connection and made my total trip awful.i was traveling with a kid but still given last seat .Food was okay and crew was helpful. After having travelled to US lot of time I felt this trip was very tiring and frustrating."

Cons: "Got a little hot in the cabin"

Pros: "The crew were friendly"
Cons: "Nothing I didn't like"

Pros: "The food and frequency of service and free checked bag were among my favorite parts of the flight. Overall the flight was fantastic. I loved the camera feature that allowed you to look at the outside of the plane. The crew was so friendly and courteous."
Cons: "The amount of entertainment available was not unappreciated, I enjoyed many of the documentaries although I wish there had been even more nature documentaries, as those are my favorite :) I did hope for a more updated selection of Hollywood movies."

Pros: "Staff were polite Comfort ok Food was basic No entertainment."

Pros: "The crew was friendly and respectful"
Cons: "Another passenger came and sat in the seat that was empty next to me and wasn’t ever asked to return to her own, assigned seat"

Cons: "Smaller plain"

Pros: "They did it again, lost my bag for the emth time. But this time its seems to be more complicated than previous times this has happened. Just hope i’ll get my bag back eventually."

Pros: "Flight and land was smooth. I like Lufthansa, because it is safe."
Cons: "My trip was 8 hrs, we get water or juice only 5 times and very small cup 100ml, not enough"

Pros: "The crew was friendly, helpful and attentive. Excellent boarding procedure."
Cons: "Entertainment system was very temperamental. Touch screen was extremely slow. The poor performance was aggravated by having the controls mounted on top of the armrests resulting in no place to rest one's arms without disturbing the entertainment system. The seats in regular economy were too small for a 10 hour flight. I am an average to small size person and had no room to get comfortable."

Cons: "No problems"

Pros: "The crew were very helpful and polite. The seats had plenty legroom. The food was excellent."
Cons: "We started boarding much later than originally announced. We may have arrived with little delay, however. No entertainment was available, which is not that great considering that it is a three and a half hours flight."

Pros: "The in flight entertainment was good and the crew was very nice, my flight was early and the boarding was very efficient. The meal was simple but good and warm. The plane was very new and clean."
Cons: "The seats could've been wider with more leg room, I ended up slightly squished for my flight which was from Boston to Munich"

Cons: "That better seats are so much more expensive."

Pros: "Everything was good."

Cons: "My flight was cancelled due to the pilots' strike. I only learned about this when I attempted online check in. Lufthansa never attempted to notify me. Then when I called in to the Romania Service Center to rebook, the phones went down in the middle of the call. That is understandable given the extreme volume of calls they were handling. What is unacceptable, is that they made no attempt to contact me once the phones were up. I ended up calling the U.S. service center at 1am local time to rebook...only 3 hours before I needed to leave for the airport. It took an hour - which I paid for at direct dial international rates - to find a flight. I'm very grateful for the U.S. service rep who was kind and helpful. She was the one bright spot in this poorly handled situation."

Pros: "Clean, entertainement"
Cons: "Food was not that great."

Pros: "The crew was very good."

Pros: "Service and crew excellent"

Pros: "We loved business class! The service was the best"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything"

Pros: "Good take off and landing. Crew was thoughtful and polite."
Cons: "Could improve on boarding. Perhaps start with the people that have seats in the back of the plane first to make it easier to board and not block the aisles, instead of having everyone board at once. Also need more comfortable seats."

Cons: "My bag is approved carry-on size, and I travel weekly with it. The gate agent forced to check it which was unnecessary and unreasonable."

Cons: "Too hot"

Pros: "Crew were very nice and friendly On time Delivered my bags to my hotel"
Cons: "Lost my bags on the way there Entertainment unit didn't work on 10 hour flight Food was unbelievably bad. Worst food I've ever seen on a plane."

Pros: "Great flights. No problems. Used a different company to schedule my return flight and having trouble with them. Wish I'd stuck with Kayak!"

Pros: "Seats were very comfortable. Plane interior was in new condition, including electronic window shade tinting."
Cons: "Staff was not particularly warm or attentive. Was never offered more to drink, and after asking for more wine was ignored."

Cons: "No internet available (2020). For the my previous flight, a month ago, was the same problem."

Pros: "Nice crew, good food."
Cons: "Both bathroom were not working in business class area."

Pros: "Great atmosphere, crew was excellent!"
Cons: "I’m 6’5”, so legroom can always be a complaint, but this wasn’t too bad. The plane appeared to be fairly old and didn’t have WiFi. Entertainment also was on an older screen which was navigated by using an old in-seat phone."

Pros: "Almost everything, especially the crew."
Cons: "Don’t feel like anything should be better to be honest"

Cons: "Information on arrival time was not correct"

Cons: "Seats in economy section are very close together . There is not enough room for knees...especially for such a long trip."

Cons: "Depart on time (1 hour late), hostess put a laptop in the overhead, which fell out and hit me when the bin was opened"

Cons: "Boarding was very slow."

Cons: "My seat was horrible. Right at the door, crammed, and no place to store my carry-on luggage."

Pros: "The space at my feet with the chair in front was a bit akward."

Pros: "The boarding was easy and you didn't have to wait inline for that long"
Cons: "KLM needs to upgrade the entertainment. It was very hard to see the images on the screen. The planes that KLM uses are old and they sure need to be upgraded."

Cons: "Customer service"

Cons: "Boarding was very confusing. There was an area where they were checking people's bags or something near the gate and you didn't know if you needed to stop at it or continue. They didn't collect garbage before landing. Not only did we have to take our bags off the plane, we had to carry our garbage (drink cups/food served) to the front of the plane to throw out."

Cons: "The cabin crew was racist! She asked me to move from a seat because she wanted another guy ( obviously from her country ) to take it! Rude and racist."

Pros: "Norhing"

Pros: "Staff both at the airport and in the plane were professional and welcoming. Depsite short distance sandwich and drink were offered."
Cons: "Nothing to be honest . All positive."

Pros: "Ground staff at Manchester very helpful"
Cons: "Information on KLM website and flight status said 50 minutes delay and was never updated with the true status. 3 hours before we took off. KLM blamed the fog at Manchester but to be honest most other flights seemed unaffected. Put up in an IBIS hotel and fed substandard food and shitty hotel room with an Aircon unit that clunks into action every 30 seconds keeping me awake. It's external so I can't switch it off. Being given a 10 Euro voucher for food at the airport when most food and a drink will cost you 12 to 15 euros."

Pros: "Short-hop flight, fit for purpose."

Pros: "Very little if any."
Cons: "Aircraft was not very clean,the staff seamed quite harsh at times when speaking to customers. The food was really quite poor but it was a short flight to be honest. Overall not as pleasant as the China Southern flights. I would not like to choose them again unless i had to."

Cons: "Departure 40 mins late. I took this flight 2 weeks ago and it was also delayed."

Pros: "The flight was delayed by 40 minutes initially then a further 20 making it an hour late. Sitting at the gate there was then suddenly a last call to board the flight and a mad rush for everyone to get on. I appreciate that delays happen but the lack of communication ragardinh altered boarding times didn't make the situation any easier"
Cons: "As above"

Pros: "The staff were friendly and all smiles. Seats were comfortable and we had a quick, smooth flight from Edinburgh to Amsterdam. The breakfast supplied was an egg and mayonnaise sandwich plus a drink, which seemed about right and very Dutch in character."
Cons: "It was rainy and necessary to walk outside to access the plane; the staff should give their customers a heads-up so that jackets can be donned. Additionally, the check-in queue seemed rather sluggish."

Pros: "Staff superb. They even surprised us with an exit row and a gift for my partners birthday! Amazing. Samantha and Dennis also took time to come and personally wish him a happy birthday. A lovely touch. This airline runs like clockwork. They are just great. The sandwich and stoop waffle are nice too."
Cons: "There is a bus to the plane, so that takes a bit of extra time but they are very well organized."

Pros: "Flight was efficient enough and staff were friendly."
Cons: "It was delayed quite a bit and more on-time updates would have been appeciated."

Pros: "Price"
Cons: "Klm flight has very congested seating Getting information about eticket was pain"

Pros: "The constant supply of food that was offered to you. The crew was nice and always helpful."
Cons: "The process of boarding in Amsterdam was not organized and felt more stressful than it needed to be."

Pros: "Short, comfortable flight. Nothing special. Got us where we needed to be without incident."
Cons: "Nothing. This is filler text to meet the min. characters."

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

Pros: "Short layover connecting from US flight and luggage transferred ok to destination. Food option not great but at least they didn't charge for it unlike some other airlines. No entertainment but to be expected on such a short flight."

Pros: "Good flight, we got a nice snack despite it being a short flight, the staff was great."

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."

Pros: "Service of the staff was great"
Cons: "Turbulence, with all our technology we still cannot avoid this?"

Cons: "I wasn't sitting next to my partner and we sat on the Tarmac for 45 minutes after the flight was already delayed by 30 minutes."

Pros: "--"
Cons: "One and a half hour delay on a 50 minute flight. Flight was operated by Cityjet on behalf of KLM. Never have I seen such bad customer service: from rude people at the bagage drop off to incompetent hostesses at the boarding gate."

Cons: "Terrible moslem food, too much lentil with tasteless chicken"

Pros: "nice but slow in business class"

Pros: "The usual efficient, friendly WestJet crew. Nice to fly in one of the new Dreamliner. Super smooth landing."
Cons: "Nothing."

Pros: "Premium seats were more comfortable, crew in our section was great, newer airplane was lovely, food and drink were really good."
Cons: "Can’t think of anything within WestJet’s control that was bad."

Cons: "Minor point. They boarded the plane very early. We got to the gate 1/2 hour before departure, and were almost the last ones to board."

Pros: "Didn't see much of crew. Food was crazy expensive for what it was."
Cons: "Better food for price, or an option to pre-book a proper meal at time of buying ticket. Plane was cold and no blankets."

Pros: "I did not make it on the flight as the time was given was 5:35 and the flight left at 4:00."
Cons: "I was not given correct information and being a very novice traveller did not check the information."

Pros: "Crew were very caring. Seats were OK"

Pros: "Did not fly. But delayed by a while"

Cons: "Tv in the seat to make the long flight pass more quickly."

Pros: "Boarding was easy, crew was pretty friendly and we reached London an hour early which was brilliant."
Cons: "Maybe let us know in advance that there's no TV's in the plane, or meals. Leg room for someone who's 6'4" is non existent, especially when the person in front of you puts their seat back."

Pros: "Comfort, timing. Customer Service!"
Cons: "Technically problems with lightning on board."

Pros: "i was pretty comfortable being in an aisle seat"
Cons: "didn’t love the lights coming on in the middle of the night"

Pros: "The crew was friendly. The flight was safe."
Cons: "The flight to be on time."

Pros: "Crew were great, service was spot on."
Cons: "Plane was old, seat didn't recline, no tv screens in front of seats, temperature was freezing (but in fairness I was at the emergency exit) and worst of all NO MEAL?? ON A NINE HOUR FLIGHT? Arrived very hungry."

Pros: "Boarding went well. Although it was a full flight, they asked for volunteers to check in hand luggage (free of charge) I did, trying to help. But once I picked up my luggage and got to destination point, I noticed that 2 small items (gifts for family) had been pilfered. Not happy and will not volunteer to help again."
Cons: "No food on plane, no entertainment,( unless you download the app) Above pilfered items"

Pros: "Neriande (who issued the boarding passes & took checked bags) and her colleague At the check in desk were amazing - actually going behind the scenes to find a gate checked bag that had been wrongly named and was headed for Toronto when we were headed to LONDON GATWICK"
Cons: "Faulty weather radar on a stormy evening cancelled our WestJet PREMIUM ECONOMY flight. After deplaning and waiting for all passengers without checked bags to be rebooked, we eventually were on our way by car from LGA to JFK airport to meet a British Airways ECONOMY flight with only minutes to spare"

Pros: "Excellent all round. Good price. Nice seats. Excellent staff. Good boarding and disembarking. Highly recommended."
Cons: "It does not have free food and entertainment, but for the price this is acceptable."

Pros: "Staff were helpful and smiling. Good value"
Cons: "We needed a better choice of food"

Pros: "Kind helpful staff"
Cons: "That you have to pay for entertainment and food on long haul flights"

Cons: "24 hour delay in Calgary because of maintenance problems with the plane. Meant I lost one precious day while visiting my 91 year old mother."

Pros: "Loved WestJet! They are the best airline, always super friendly"

Pros: "staff on airline great"
Cons: "Lost my luggage hopefully I’ll get that tomorrow. Airline charged me 70 pounds for that. Staff at customer service were not helpful at all."

Pros: "Hi. I actually am glad that the company is following up because I was having a hard time finding an email to contact. I actually came to kayak to book my ticket for Friday to go to London however when I got to the airport it says it was for Monday. Because I had to be at London the next day for a wedding i had to buy another ticket for almost 1000. I also couldn’t contact u so I’m emailing now. I didn’t get on the plane for west jet because I am already in London. I also have a screen shot that shows me that my flight details were for Friday however another email shows me that it’s for Monday. Even the workers at th airport were confused and felt strongly bad for me. I would like a full refund as well. Thank you. Please contact back. 416806-6530 or email me at sarapascual@hotmail.ca"

Cons: "Our original flight was cancelled due to WestJet reasons (plane was not safe to fly) the following evening the flight was supposed to depart at 7pm we didn’t take off until 10:37 pm causing an arrival of 940AM into London instead of 7:23AM primarily because the crew they chose for this new flight was coming from Montreal so we had to wait for them to arrive."

Pros: "Crew was friendly."
Cons: "Lack of maintenance. Seats did not recline, seat in front of me was broken. No reading lights available. One washroom became inoperable. Just showing a lack of maintenance or cost saving measures until new planes are delivered. Not a great impression for a carrier striving to compete against Air Canada. I would say they are competing with Air Transat."

Cons: "Big 4 hour delay caused that we missed another flight in London"

Cons: "We couldn't take the flight as Westjet could not get us there on time and would not hold the flight ...... see above"

Pros: "The flight was not cancelled in spite of poor weather"
Cons: "Flight on tarmac for 2 hours after loading passengers no word regularly from pilots or anyone for a long time. Baggage loading and no accountability for huge delays for lost luggage containers? Who is the logistics team? This is not the first time westjet has provided poor service on their international flights. Training if ground staff onsystems is poor. He guest services at tronto openly claimed they did lot know how to operate certain screens for transactions."

Pros: "We survived"
Cons: "On an 8 hour flight there’s no complimentary meal. I paid for a meal and it was worse than free plane food and starved for the rest of the trip. The chairs were horribly uncomfortable with no lower back support and we were not even given pillows and blankets. There was also no free entertainment. I rented a tablet and had it taken away an hour before landing while I was in the middle of a movie. I might have been ok with that if the flight attendant had politely asked for it back rather than rudely waving and pointing while I stared at her blankly trying to figure out what she wanted. Next time I’ll pay a bit more for an airline that respects its passengers and our comfort."

Pros: "I was traveling with my 11 month old daughter and everyone went out of their way to assist us and I didn't feel like a burden to them. When she was sleeping on my lap during the flight they even brought me my meal in portions so I didn't have a huge tray to balance over my baby."
Cons: "Everything was great"

Pros: "Free upgrade and gate check!"
Cons: "No checked bags or meals for economy passengers"

Cons: "Pre-ordered meals are costlier than those purchased on board. The crew explains it by saying that they give some extra food just before landing, in lieu of that but what they give is too meagre and its not the customers choice."

Pros: "The flight attendants where really nice and so was the service wouldn't change a thing here."
Cons: "I didn't like that someone was reclining in there seat in front of me and it was so far down that it was uncomfortable even to sit in my seat or get to my table. Also was very disappointed that I had to pay for food even though it was way over 8 hours, in the end didn't even bother about food was not much of a choice. Also no TV on this long haul flight was really disappointed again, so I had to pay for a tablet was hugely disappointed. Needed more leg room was cramped on this flight."

Cons: "My ticket/reservation was not found by WestJet. I had to buy a new ticket. Flight Network or Emirates screwed up. I will need you and them to reemburse me. Please investigate."

Pros: "Very cheerful and friendly crew. Made the journey very enjoyable."
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Comfort, friendliness and ease of travel with Westjet"
Cons: "Can't think of anything"

Pros: "Basics of chips or pretzels as one food offering"

Pros: "Friendly, polite crew. Well organized boarding"

Pros: "comfortable seats friendly crew"
Cons: "no entertainment system, fee for renting tablet not enough room in overhead no complimentary food or drink service"

Pros: "Only problem is my flight didnt have screens and you had to pay for a tablet. I get screens on my flights to Edmonton and Sask for work with Westjet all the time but on a long flight to London they're majorly lacking. A basic meal over a 9.5 hour flight should be included as well."
Cons: "1 for usb charging ports though. I still love Westjet but different priorities for International flights should a no brainer."

Pros: "The flight is decently cheap"
Cons: "Everything else is not really pleasant for a long distance travel. I've never felt more uncomfortable in my life during a flight. But i suppose you get what you paid for."

Pros: "food was good"
Cons: "Delays in connection flight, arrival gate and departure are far away and no help from airlines."

Pros: "the entertainment system was incredible."
Cons: "It was a very long flight-- including a meal in the ticket would have made it more enjoyable."

Pros: "After our horrendous flight to America with Norwegian (never again!!!) it was refreshing to have some space and the staff was friendly"
Cons: "lnternet was very expensive ($4-5 for 30 minutes, so l did not bother) no entertainment whatsoever, but okay for a budget flight during the night"

Pros: "When they fixed the aircraft it was overcrowded but okay"
Cons: "Their dishonesty. We were delayed 25hours. I am out of pocket by several hundreds of pounds. Two months later they have still not compensated me. yet the Canadians that were on the fight have been reimbursed. The message is loud and clear if you are British do not fly West Jet"

Pros: "Boarding was quick and easy, and the gate attendant was quite friendly."
Cons: "Very rude crew members; delay leaving YVR. Instead of being honest and upfront about having to leave an HOUR later--and also lying by saying that we'd be flying into Gatwick in only 8.5 hours as opposed to 9.5--they made us wait in our seats while the craft supposedly waited for food to be loaded. The best line was, "Our plane will be landed an hour earlier! But because London doesn't like it when we land early, we're going to wait here for a while on the tarmac so we make it there on time.""

Pros: "Low cost, supportive seating"
Cons: "Meals are extra Arrived a bit early and had to wait about 15 min for someone to attach the gate"

Cons: "Plane needs to be upgraded, don't charge for meals or baggage"

Pros: "Very helpful! Very enjoyable flight, I was worried about my bags fitting as I took a 46L backpacking bag with me but it rit great and staff was so nice!"

Pros: "The service was okay and departed on time."
Cons: "I didnt like not having entretainment (no TV or free wifi). Meals not included on economy class."
