Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Cons: "Food poor going to Munich , legroom poor."
Pros: "the airplane was brand new. l really like it and the crew was nice."
Cons: "The seats were not super comfortable in economy class. There was enough leg-room but the seat itself was not."
Pros: "The crew was very friendly and provided excellent service"
Cons: "The seat could have been a little bit more comfortable. Then again for a long trip, unless you are in business or first class, it's not going to be that comfortable."
Cons: "Fight could have been on time! It was over 45 minutes late, because of the crew"
Cons: "You canceled my trip"
Cons: "Better food/choice-make it on time....and its quite cold in the plane-not sure why."
Pros: "The boarding process was well organized and fast."
Cons: "The temperature on the airplane was uncomfortably warm. Not sure what was up with the AC but I had to change clothes and freshen up once arriving at my layover."
Cons: "The flight left 19 minutes early, stranding 7 people who were connecting from New Orleans. We ran across the entire airport and made it to the gate before departure time. The employee at Lufthansa Senator lounge was nice enough to tell us that the crew must have felt like leaving early. She was very nonchalant about the whole issue. She also refused to assist us, and told us we needed to exit the airport and reenter through the ticketing counter. I upheld my end of the deal by reaching the gate in time. This situation needs to be rectified."
Cons: "Seats felt like Adirondack chairs..hard and no lower back support."
Pros: "Greate service, good food, planty of legs room, everything on schedule and super comunication via email, text messeges!"
Cons: "Flight was canceled one hour before departure. There was no explanation except that the crew decided not to fly from Boston to Washington DC. We waited for two hours in a line to get rebooked. We lost our tickets on another flight connecting us to our final destination. Therefore, we had to re-book that flight and incur charges. Lufthansa Considers this consequential loss not responsible for fees incurred. This service is unacceptable and will make us reconsider ever flying this airline again."
Pros: "Smooth flight"
Cons: "Entertainment was not functioning properly..... only one side of the head phones worked."
Pros: "First time on Lufthansa. Service was friendly and airplane food was surprising good."
Cons: "After usual perfect service from Luftahansa, I noticed that my lagguage was opened and destroyed."
Cons: "Wish we’d had a bit more legroom"
Pros: "Everything on the flight was very efficient and organized—the boarding process, the excellent and pleasant service, the food, and the entertainment selections. Thank you for making a long flight enjoyable."
Cons: "This particular flight was delayed beyond reaching the next sep,so we have to rebook our flight threw Chicago in uncomfortable hurry."
Pros: "Boarding was made seamless. Seating legroom always seems to be better then others I have flown with. Food seems to be better too. The flight crew is very friendly!"
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Walked a very long way in Frankfurf airport to transfer to another flight."
Cons: "Frankfurt Airport is awful! Finding how to go thru immigration and being sent to three different places. Trying to figure out how to get to baggage claim. And the. Sorting out trains into the city. Worse than Charles de Gaul and I thought that was the real rock bottom."
Cons: "I guess I can’t properly rate the flight because it was canceled and I ended up flying United. I will say that that flight was fine. I was disappointed that there were zero notifications telling me that my initial flight with Lufthansa was canceled. When I finally got through over the phone, I was booked for a flight that I couldn’t make and had to wait until the next day to start my trip."
Pros: "Food was great."
Cons: "Entertainment was frustrating"
Pros: "They were nice"
Cons: "They were good"
Cons: "Sold me upgraded bulkhead seat and emergency row on way back. But given regular seats for both flights. Plane change on one flight and they upgraded family to exit row for other. No acommodation from flight attendants. They did offer empty "upgraded" premium economy seats for extra $300 on top of what I already paid. seats so narrow & thin (to squeeze more seats In), my hips hurt for final 3 hours. Miserable experience. Lufthansa fails in customer service."
Pros: "The service by the flight attendants was very good starting from the welcome to the end in spite of the fact that it was quite late night flight. Also by fortunate luck I had the chance to sleep as the next three seats to me were all empty in the middle block, which made the whole trip less exhaustive."
Cons: "If the seats next to me weren't empty and I couldn't lay down across all of them it would have been a difficult flight as the economy seats are not even close with economy comfort levels of other international airlines like Turkish Airlines especially the seat pitch size. Entertainment choices could be improved by more recent movies. There were very few selection."
Pros: "The cabin crew was excellent all around, really made the experience a pleasure. Also very helpful when I couldn't locate my wallet as I was preparing to deplane, both in terms of helping me look and explaining what I could do if it didn't turn up (eventually it did, before I disembarked)."
Cons: "The seats, while relatively comfortable on their own, were really jammed in; it felt cramped even as a smaller adult. And the boarding process in Washington seemed to take a very long time."
Cons: "Flight delayed by about an hour"
Cons: "Need free WiFi on international flights"
Pros: "Excellent service, on time arrival, a great experience! Everything was easy with Lufthansa, which soothed my jitters and helped me relax (as much as is possible!)"
Pros: "the two older female stewards spoke slow enough so I could understand. The customer service rep in the lobby was always friendly, knowlegeable and able to help me. For example, I did not know, when boarding, if we had to show our passports, but I asked him and we did not. I did not grasp the five levels of boarding he mentioned. I knew our group was not handicapped and we were economy, but I did not really know if we were group 4 or 5 to board."
Cons: "There was one female steward who made me take my carry on bag from the upper deck and store it below my seat so another lady's much, much larger bag would fit. Her bag was so large, I can't believe it met the standards. On the other hand, this procedure may be the way things work out,for the good of everyone, but it came as a surprise to me. To accomplish the task, she even asked another female to move her carry on from the rack above her to another several rows down. This lady's hair was too big for such a small plane. She talked way too fast in the first monologue. The plane seemed cheap and the sub airline had an air outlet that would not turn off and leaked with water mist. There was an air conditioner that also had a water vapor leak overhead, which my son said was a 'strip' which he could not control. We were seating in the back row. We noticed the plane was operated by Mesa airlines and the plane was assembled in Brazil, giving me a feeling of excessive cost cutting. Also, the pilot had an accent that sort of added to the 'Brazil' thing that he was not a native English speaker. However, he had a good landing at Atlanta near midnight. I did not feel I was on a real 'United' Airlines flight."
Pros: "The check in process was fast and pleasant. Boarding was fast and organized. Food and drinks were good."
Cons: "The seats were very uncomfortable for such a long flight. Simply terrible."
Pros: "excellent dinner selection movies and on screen entertainment were great"
Cons: "2 hour wait on tarmac in Dulles for weather no one in the crew could tell us where our connecting gait was or whether we would have enough time to make it"
Pros: "Everything was amazing Very pleased!"
Cons: "Good choice entertainment but system is slow to respond and crashed on a few occasions"
Cons: "Seats were not comfortable even in business"
Pros: "Captain was personable and made the flight more enjoyable"
Cons: "Length, which could not be helped"
Pros: "Crew carried out their jobs very professionally Entertainment selection was good"
Cons: "Lack of personal seating space"
Pros: "Timely departure."
Cons: "Fruit and a muffin is not enough for breakfast."
Cons: "No vegan food"
Pros: "The flight was delayed two hours. I flew them 10 years ago and thought their seervice rivaled the Asian airlines. Now their service and seat comfort is near the cellar dwellars. The premium coach seat I paid extra for was the narrowest coach seat I have ever had the misfortune to sit in. I am a small man. 5'*8" 165lbs. The normal sized man next to me and I had to sit with our elbows pinned to our ribs. Eight hours of hell. I also had a totally irritating woman from syria behind me. She pushed and banged on my seat back the entire 8 hours. She had to have her loud mouth yapping most of the flight. That was the worse experience I have had flying. Also the attendents didnt care about me. I had to ask for tea. Had to ask three times as they were waalking off"
Cons: "The flight was delayed 2 hours. The seat was tiny , cramped and uncomfortable. I travel a lot. This is the first negative review I have written in 55 years of flying."
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."
Cons: "EVERYTHING! They put us on a United flight. 11 hours on the plane with NO ENTERTAINMENT. They apologized at the end and told us to all fill out a complaint at united.com. I did and still haven't heard back. The flight attendants were rude and it was a horrible flight. Worst international flight I have taken in my life. And it was for an adoption appointment with a judge in Riga, and we barely made it."
Pros: "Everything is great. The airplane, staff, and their terminal at the airport"
Cons: "I can't find anything bad about me experience with Lufthansa."
Pros: "Efficient, early check in and seat selection was simple and done from home. Got to the airport early which is unusual for me but everything went smoothly and was relatively low stress."
Pros: "Check in was good. Everything was orderly and on time."
Cons: "Fairly cramped for an international flight."
Pros: "The ice cream dessert"
Cons: "Old fashioned entertainment systems where you can't choose when you want to watch something you have to start watching at the same time as everyone. Flight advertised as Lufthansa was United both ways, there is a big difference between the service in both. United makes you pay to choose your seat like a budget carrier so everyone is angry about the seat they're in. Won't be flying them again if possible!"
Pros: "Lufthansa's newest 747-8 airliner was quite the treat for international flight. 100% LED lights with subtle purple-blue mood lighting overnight looks pretty and mimics Virgin's design. Dozens of movies to choose from in addition to many more entertainmrnent options in the widescreen touchscreens. And actual silverware for food, even in economy. The addition of Premier Economy (wider and longer seats) copies the design from United's Economy Plus, at the expense of regular economy's legroom (I believe). Note: if you have noise canceling earphones or headphones like myself, get the 2-jack airline adapter. Lufthansa uses the proprietary dual-jack, at least in economy."
Cons: "Pasta dinner only had 1/8 piece tomato. Stick to the chicken."
Pros: "City airport is quick to exit with good transport links"
Cons: "Frankfurt airport has limited places to eat"
Pros: "fast and friendly checkin, fast boarding, easy transmit"
Cons: "lastminute.com was completely unhelpful in assisting with any changes to my itinerary. They repeatedly provided me with incorrect information that sent me on a wild goose chase."
Cons: "Boarding tool a long time and late take off"
Pros: "Everything about the United Airlines portion of the trip was terrific: lots of food & drinks; good entertainment system; good seats even in economy. United really stepped up their game."
Cons: "The seats on the Austria Airlines portion of the trip were very close together & very minimally structured (little padding, depth etc.)"
Pros: "The hotel was nice although I was unable to sleep due to the delays all around concerning my connecting flight. I am thoroughly upset because I contacted the airlines 3 times in May to express my concern with the 30mins layover. And to no avail. My worst concerns are being played out now. It appears that their isn’t any concern from the airlines about this catastrophe impacting so many people. Shame on you."
Cons: "The connecting flight departed before the first flight landed. Then I was given the wrong information of gate departure by airport personnel. After running like crazy to find this gate for departure, the plane had already departed before we even landed. There wasn’t anyone around to help, and finally I found an airport worker who gave me the same incorrect information. She was as perplexed as was I. Finally, she directed me to the information booth where I was booked in a flight the next day. The food voucher was insufficient to cover dinner, i had to pay out of my pocket but I was frugal given the financial situation. The taxi service personnel were rude and it took a long time to taxi me to the hotel where I am unable to sleep because I have an early morning g departure. All in all, between the airport delays getting me to the hotel, lack of proper food and treatment by personnel, I am exhausted and lost sleep in the process."
Pros: "In The Austria my flight was terrible couse the official people didn’t help me I was with my baby I needed help for stroller for suitcase or something else just the guys watched me with they sad face , they didn’t was nice with me !!!"
Cons: "I don’t know I was nervous in Austria just I need to tell you for Washington it was the nice trip to Washington from Washington I had just better thiothere"
Cons: "Boarding crew was nasty will never fly with you guys again"
Pros: "Great to be able to check in bags at the CAT railway station in the morning. Cabin crew were excellent- very friendly and helpful and did two drinks services. Austrian’s cabin crew sets them apart on European routes."
Pros: "-maintenance had to fix an issue that the team was not transparent about for 2.5 hours. 0at least boarding happened swiftly -the male crew member was GREAT but the female crew members two of them were very short, rude, and not there to bring comfort to customers -chicken meal was tasty, but made both me and my father sick. Muffin for breakfast was mediocre as well -tv was good, but touch screen sometimes doesn't work."
Pros: "Generally very pleasant flight"
Cons: "No complaints"
Pros: "The boarding process was short and quick. Entertainment choices were excellent."
Cons: "I was hoping for a more traditional Austrian meal but the food was just fine."
Pros: "I get Airpoints with the flight, crew were lovely."
Cons: "Flight was overbooked, so a few delays (as they were asking if anyone would layover to release a seat) and they were being very strict on the one bag per traveller, but that’s fair enough considering it was busy."
Pros: "Very friendly and attentive flight crew, nice entertainment options, food good for airline food."
Cons: "Never been more uncomfortable in a plane seat. I’m six feet tall and my knees hit the back of the seat in front of me. I would not fly this airline again for this reason."
Pros: "All flights were on schedule"
Pros: "We had a very tight connection but there was no problem. With only 30 minutes between arrival and departure our checked bags still made the flight."
Cons: "Poor announcements"
Pros: "Great food. Exceptional service. Clean airplane and toilets. The whole flight was smooth and comfortable. And we were in coach!!!"
Cons: "All was great."
Pros: "Highly efficient transfer (45 minutes between flights)"
Cons: "too short a time to transfer between flights as a very long distance between gates,"
Cons: "May bags didn't make the transfer and were sent on to me the following day."
Cons: "Our flight was delayed by three hours due to “technical problems“. We were never updated during the weight and when we were told that the flight was canceled everyone was told to go back to the ticketing area to pick up their luggage and to find other options. When we were almost halfway there we were told to turn around and that the flight in fact was not canceled. The food was mediocre at best in the service on the plane was in adequate. They were understaffed and staff to peer to be stressed and fatigued. The seats were small and cramped and not well padded in the economy section. We are going to be flying on Lufthansa in the spring and will hope that their services are better than what we experienced on Austrian air."
Pros: "The service. Very attentive staff."
Cons: "Thechnical problems with the plane.One hour we were sitting in the plane and waiting departure"
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Lateness and virtually no food at lunchtime"
Pros: "The outbound flight from Vienna to IAD had much better service. The return flight from IAD to Vienna, the crew didn't come back to refill water or ask to top up drinks. The food choices were more limited. The entertainment system on the flight needs a larger selection."
Pros: "easy boarding"
Cons: "bad seating. you previously provided a comfort kit but discontinued it."
Cons: "Our home was damaged, and we were without power for 6 days due to Hurricane Irma. We called the airlines repeatedly in an effort to cancel the ticket before the flight. They refused to cancel the tickets. Heartless"
Pros: "The cabin was clean and comfortable. The crew was efficient and friendly. We departed early and arrived early and the entertainment was just what I wanted."
Cons: "Nothing - it was a great flight"
Cons: "I will never fly Austrian again! They disrespected my family, they did not honor my reservations, and the staff was just nasty!"
Cons: "My father and I were seated in biz class but were unable to sleep because of a fan noise directly over our seats in Row 9. We complained to the attendant about it but she was unable to determine the cause. Many hours later, a different crew member identified the noise source and stopped it by simply flipping a switch. This disruptive noise could have easily been avoided but the ignorance of the crew member to whom we complained failed to solve it. By the time the second crew member identified the problem there was not enough time to sleep. This experience was extremely disappointing. We paid extra to fly business class so we could sleep, but this ridiculous crew error fouled our plans. We asked the crew to file a report about it and they did. Look into it. We expect a refund of the extra fare we paid, or else we will never fly Austrian Airlines again. I am an affluent person and I travel internationally 6 times per year. You would be smart not to anger me and lose my business."
Cons: "Complete lack of information and abrupt staff when flight was delayed"
Cons: "When I was boarding all representatives was very unfriendly and I would say they were rude."
Pros: "Great staff, friendly and helpful."
Pros: "I loved the boarding process. Everything was very organized! I was lucky to sit by myself next to the window, so i had plenty of space to stretch. The flight was right on schedule, so i didnt have to worry about making it to the next flight. Food was good. We were offered the water through the whole trip which is nice, because i always feel super dehydrated on the plane."
Cons: "I wasn't very satisfied with the flight attendants. I don't know if its just me getting used to american customer service, or me actually working at the customer service, but it's definetely not the greatest level of service. Girls were giving me an attitude and "smartie" ( in a rude way) responds which kinda made me feel uncomfortable and disrespected. I had the same experience with Lufthansa before. And once with russian airlines. Maybe its some kinda tendency to get erogant at this job, but please, don't get me wrong, its not that kinda job where you should look at people from above"
Cons: "As I was flying from London Heathrow back to Vienna, I had a carry-on that was allowed on my flight with Austrian from Vienna to London. My carry-on weighed 8 kg, like is required by the rules. While boarding my flight, the woman at the counter told me my bag had to be checked because there were too many carry-ons on the flight. I asked her that I keep my bag because I had medication in there, and she didn't listen to me at all. She just kept repeating that i have to check my bag, and then took my bag from me and gave it to the baggage crew there. I didn't want to make a huge scene because the flight is only 2 hours and I hoped i Could deal without my medication during that time, but I found it incredibly, incredibly rude and awful to not listen to a passenger."
Pros: "Pleasant flight crews on all flights."
Cons: "Cramped seating in coach."
Cons: "The crew members on the flight from Washington to Vienna were absolutely rude and unhelpful."
Cons: "I luked the atmosphire and the silence ."
Pros: "everything on time, good selection of movies"
Cons: "the food....pretty bad"
Pros: "Everything went well other than what was served for breakfast."
Cons: "The food that was served for dinner was fine. Some fruit/yogurt would have been far better for breakfast than the muffin that was served."
Pros: "Very good choice of Entertainment. Crew is very kind AND helpfull.Excelent service from the begining to the End."
Pros: "The meal and drink service was quite good. The stewards/stewardesses were very attentive and kind."
Cons: "There is not enough leg room. There is even less room if the person in front of one's seat has the seat reclined. The seats barely recline at all, so sleep is impossible. Sleep would be possible if there were enough room to rest one's head on the tray in front of the seat. This is impossible if the person in front of one's seat has reclined his or her seat. Thus, sleep is totally impossible on this aircraft. The sinks in the bathrooms also need to be deeper and need to drain more quickly."
Cons: "Seats in economy class were crammed with next to no leg room"
Pros: "The only positive aspect about this experience was the crew on board the plane. They were pleasant and efficient."
Cons: "The true cost of this ticket was extremely poorly communicated. The baggage policy was not clear when I purchased my ticket, and I was charged an additional 30 Euros upon boarding to check a bag that met the carry-on size requirements (I had looked this up ahead of time), but because it was in addition to my purse (which fit under the seat), I was forced to pay to check it. Had I been aware that this ticket only permitted a purse-sized carry-on when purchasing the ticket, I would have selected a different ticket/carrier entirely. What was even more confusing was that I had flown on a similar ticket from London to Vienna, and didn't have any issue bringing a carry-on and a purse, so of course I was surprised when they told me I had to pay an additional 30Euro for the same two bags! When I tried to explain this to the agent, she argued with me and was very unhelpful. Overall, a very negative experience on Austrian Air. I will not be returning."
Pros: "Food, courtesy of flight attendants."
Cons: "Old plane. Very little space in chairs."
Pros: "Exiting the aircraft."
Cons: "United did not honour the seat assignment that Airfare.com gave me so I sat in a middle seat. But the entire seating plan on United is so bad it should be a violation of the anti torture convention."
Pros: "It was cheap and easy to book"
Cons: "Not being able to check in online, was not able to reserve seat. Even at luggage check in the flight attendants did not allow me to reserve a seat."
Pros: "Typically, flying coach is a pretty unpleasant experience. You feel like the airline has shrunk the seats to as small as possible, food is scarce and bad, entertainment choices are limited, and you have to pay for headphones. My recent experience with Austrian Air was just the opposite. Seats were comfortable, leg room was good, entertainment options were plentiful and free, the food was actually surprisingly good for airplane food, and the flight attendants were extremely nice and responsive. As an added bonus - red and white wine were free on the flight and both were actually quite delicious! Finally, our flight was smooth and on time. I wil go out of my way to book my next international flight on Austrian Air - it was a clearly superior experience than flying coach on nearly any other airline."
Pros: "Professional crew"
Cons: "I think for the price I paid for the flight there should at least be a free snack to go with the free drink."
Pros: "See previous note about lost bag."
Cons: "See previous note about lost bag."
Pros: "that there was a water and a blanket on each seat!"
Cons: "I thought there was free alcohol on international flights. that you were not allowed to use the given blanket until after take off."
Cons: "Noise in aircraft. Transit time between flights was too short."
Pros: "Good boarding process and crew today."
Cons: "Plane was delayed and connection in Copenhagen was missed, resulting in a five-hour delay overall."
Pros: "Excellent and professional crew members"
Cons: "Nothing, the flight was smooth, most enjoyable"
Cons: "The flight was cancelled without explanation"
Cons: "The food offering"
Pros: "The crew was amazing but delays upto 2 hrs"
Cons: "Nothing as not in control"
Pros: "Overall, an incredible experience!!!"
Cons: "The food was excellent"
Pros: "I have used Kayak for years without issue. This time I was flying SAS for the first time. The plane broke and so that was the first huge delay SAS had terrible customer service. They reminded me several times that I was not a preferred customer and that I had bought my ticket through kayak. This is the reason they gave for lack of help. It was frustrating to say the least. I’m not sure how they expect to gain repeat customers if they treat first time customers like that."
Cons: "I don’t like how the food on premium economy is packed in a cubic box that is really messy to eat from which the small plastic cutlery. Food quality is good, but feels like being an animal being fed from a bucket."
Cons: "Got asked to leave my seat in row 3 for one further back because I couldnt pull up my ticket mid flight to show it was my seat. Their system had me in another row so I missed out on the extra service offered to that row."
Pros: "Food was okay. Very smooth landing"
Cons: "Crew. One of the flight attendants was unfriendly and short when asked about food options. None of them were approachable."
Cons: "Rude crew, and apparently now you only get one free nonalcoholic drink in Economy for an 8 hour flight."
Pros: "Easy boarding. Friendly staff"
Pros: "The comfort and technology on the aircraft."
Pros: "Not full. Kind crew."
Cons: "No complaints."
Cons: "This has nothing directly with SAS, but since I experienced it during my flight there, they are responsible of it. I was waiting for the flight at the OSLO airport waiting for the flight to LONDON. I had ample time to work on my computer. In the big room by the gate there was only one spot where I found three electrical sockets hanging from a pillar or post. To my dismay none worked. My plug would fall off from each. To document, I took the pictures of the useless sockets... I complained to the lady at the boarding desk (she left before the SAS staff moved in), she did not even care... This experience frustrated me and turned an otherwise pleasant trip into a bitter one. Please install some working sockets in your waiting room! Flight SK 809 Confirmation: LN9M6O Departure: Oslo & other airports (OSL) Arrival: Heathrow (LHR) Time: Sat Dec 2 2017 3:05 pm CET - Sat Dec 2 2017 4:25 pm GMT Peace, Edip Yuksel +1 520 481 1919"
Pros: "This is obviously a very well-run airline. Boarding was efficient, the crew were warm and professional, and the overall feel of the aircraft was very Scandinavian-cool. I was most impressed with the meal service. We were served twice on our 9 hour flight, and both meals were hot, healthy, and the best I’ve had during a flight. The passenger in front of us was having a hard time with her sinuses, and the flight attendant (whose name I wish we had gotten) was very attentive and concerned for the comfort and well-being of the passenger. She insisted on doing anything she could to alleviate the woman’s difficulty. It is clear that the crew care about the passengers’ experience."
Cons: "We were unable to sleep at all during our overnight flight and landed pretty exhausted. Our seats were comfortable (complete with a moldable headrest to keep your head from bobbing around) but we felt too upright to fall asleep. The passenger in front of us reclined, but we were concerned about reclining into the already tight space of the passenger behind us. So we weren’t able to sleep, despite trying to get comfortable/somewhat horizontal. It seemed to be a mixed bag of asleep and awake passengers on the flight, so some people were unaffected by this issue."
Pros: "On time, easy boarding"
Cons: "The flight was nearly full and everyone seemed to have at least two cases. This caused lots of jostling for space in the lockers"
Pros: "I was running late to my flight, and I found the SAS customer service line exceptionally helpful in helping me make the right decisions regarding how best to deal with the risk of missing my flight. In the end, I made my flight in time, but I found customer service critical in making the best decisions regarding my pre-flight transportation. Additionally, the flight was smooth and enjoyable."
Pros: "Pleasant crew"
Cons: "Boarding was shambolic and the 737 is not as nice as the new A320 in terms of comfort or amenity. Boarding was all over the place - and the gate agents clearly need extra people around for a full flight. One person for 170 ppl didn't feel right."
Pros: "The crew was so amazing and friendly!!"
Cons: "They only offered tea and coffee for free as a drink and nothing anything more, and were not kind at explaining this."
Cons: "Crew not very friendly."
Pros: "Seats are more comfortable than those of many other airlines."
Cons: "Normally, I am not picky regarding airline food. In SAS's economy or "Go" class, there is no choice of food. I can think of plenty of dishes that would be appealing to many people. Yet the meal that was served, beef stew, posed a problem as I don't eat red meet. Since many people also do not eat beef due to religious beliefs, I am appalled by SAS's decision to only serve this dish to its economy class passengers. As I ordered my ticket through Kayak, I didn't have the option to request a special diet, nor did I think to do so as airlines generally do not serve serve a beef dish as their one and only."
Pros: "This wasn't a very long flight and I didn't eat or drink anything so there isn't really that much to say. But I can say that nothing was a problem at all"
Cons: "There were no problems"
Cons: "Unable to select seat/baggage until 22 hours before flight because not booked through SAS. Thought bagged was checked in online and had to pay More than the cost of the flight. Flight was delayed due to mechanical problem. Cabin very warm throughout flight."
Cons: "I was really disappointed at finding out at luggage check-in that I had to pay extra (£60.00) for my one regular-size suitcase. On the return flight I was told that this amount would be - as it turned out in my case - less than half, if I called SAS a day before departure. Why did I have to pay for the checked luggage at all?"
Pros: "Boarding was easy, I'm a Star Alliance Gold member so was able to get on board first. There were significant delays leaving Dulles and our connection was tight, but SAS held the flight so I give them props for that."
Cons: "The crew was grumpy and unhelpful, but I can usually overlook that. What really got me was this: YOU HAVE TO PAY FOR BEER & WINE ON THIS INTERNATIONAL FLIGHT! Never in my 25 years of international travel have I seen this from a mainstream carrier. For this fact alone, I will never fly this airline again. You also have to pay to pick your seats in advance."
Pros: "I had a window seat with a view of New York City as we flew North."
Cons: "The sound quality of the earphones was so poor that I could not understand most of the dialogue of the film that I watched."
Pros: "Good experience. Nothing extra-ordinary. Only complimentary tea, water and coffee."
Cons: "Flight arrived on time."
Pros: "The entertainment system was very good. The crew were all efficient and courteous, with the exception of one crew member who was rather curt."
Cons: "Our plane arrived at IAD late due to a minor mechanical that was repaired at its previous destination. Consequently, we departed IAD almost two hours late, causing us to miss our connection in Copenhagen. Norwegian Air had a flight leaving shortly from Copenhagen to Rome, but the transfer agent told us SAS "does not re-book with Norwegian." Instead we were assigned to two more flights, one to Brussels, and another from Brussels to Rome. We arrived in Rome around 17:00 rather than 10:35 as scheduled, losing a full day of sight-seeing."
Pros: "Technically, since the first leg of my flight was changed I no longer flew this route, but it was through the same airlines and they fixed my issues no problem."
Pros: "boarding is different and they were talking over pa announcements at heathrow so you could not hear what to do. you go through one ticket agent to the down stairs to another ticket agent. everyone knowing what to expect crowded around the second ticket agent and there because of that forget about boarding by row or zone you couldn't get throught the crowd. plus the second ticket agent was right next to the downstairs escalator so people coming late got on before us."
Pros: "Timely or even earlier arrival. Generally, very good experience"
Pros: "The food was very good surprisingly"
Cons: "Again the seats are too tight and they should not be allowed to recline"
Cons: "In-flight entertainment did not work, veggie meal I ordered was not there, and when I asked if I could have one of the extra business class meals, I was told no. I further asked if I could just have some chips from the snack basket and that was met with a death glare from the female flight attendant. All in all, the flight attendants were rude and unwilling to accept any ownership in the poor conditions of this 9 hour flight."
Cons: "The plane was very old and not maintained well, dirty and not clean from the previous flights"
Cons: "My daughter was feeling nauseous the whole time. She pressed the button to ask for a moist towel but was ignored after much waiting; she pressed again, and more waiting came with no response. She got yelled at when she went to ask politely. I understand the crew can get busy but where is compassion for a customer in need?"
Pros: "Did not use their services much but the stewards seemed nice."
Cons: "Flight was delayed, no entertainment, not many food options for people with certain dietary requirements."
Pros: "Clean, comfortable plane."
Cons: "No free alcohol. Limited food options."
Cons: "Seats are allowed to recline to far. When you are sitting behind someone who has reclined their seat you have no room"
Cons: "Unfriendly and rude desk help. Rude and insulting. United was a real disappointment. I will ask my travel agent to be in touch re screw up the economy plus seats. I had to pay extra for what our itinerant said had been booked. Mary, at the desk at C12 in Delles, she wouldn't give me her last name was unbelievably insulting and unhelpful."
Pros: "Flight was fine, service good, and our seat choice excellent."
Cons: "We left an iPad on board in Copenhagen and found that there was no way to inform SAS!"
Cons: "sas online seat selection and checkin, computer crashed"
Cons: "No individual seat control of airflow. The plane was very warm and there were no vents at each seat."
Cons: "Not even one bag was included!! And to add a bag is extremely expensive!!! Paid five hundred dkk for one bag!!! Terrible service as well!!!"
Pros: "Easy embarkation, helpful staff."
Cons: "Shock to discover that suitcases were not included in price of tickets purchased online. We had to pay the equivalent of $100 (australian) per case. My seat was extremely u comfortable as the cusihion was misshapen. The male passengers seated behind us were drinking alcohol and became loud and garrulous, making the trip most uncomfortable and unpleasant."
Cons: "Finnair are hellbent on trying to sell goods and continuously interrupt the movies with their confounded announcements every 15 minutes very annoying. If i wanted to buy something its in their mag and as a regional flight it should include some form of nourishment other than juice or coffee one off, tight fisted and not a descent selection of food either"
Cons: "- Leave in time - Working onboard entertainment system"
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Free bags under Corbin"
Pros: "Speed boarding process."
Cons: "No entertainment system on a 3 hour flight..."
Pros: "The crew were helpful, pleasant and professional"
Cons: "There wasn't anything we actively didn't like. It was a good flight."
Pros: "I think this airline has an attention to detail and level of service which surpasses most other airlines. Whilst remaining competitive these factors make traveling with Finnair a far more comfortable and attractive proposition for me. In addition, Helsinki airport must be one of the best around."
Cons: "No food only blueberry juice and water"
Pros: "Service, staff, food and beverages all excellent"
Cons: "Seat was just a little hard when lying on my side"
Pros: "Arrived ahead of time Crue"
Cons: "Sales on board"
Pros: "The accommodations made me feel like I was in first class!"
Cons: "The screaming child behind me ):"
Pros: "I LOVED my stewardist. This man was so incredibly kind to me and the service he gave me had me questioning if it's usually appropriate to tip them. I wish I knew this mans name so I could rave about him but I unfortunately didn't catch it."
Cons: "Let me start out by saying this was my first transcontinental, longer than 2hour flight...I am extremely upset that I paid the extra money to choose my seat and when booking I chose that I wanted a window seat, well I ended up smack in the middle of the plane with a person on each side of me so I wasn't even able to sleep the entire 7 hour 9p-9am flight. Also when I attempted to check in 24hours prior in order to make sure I got a seat id be happy with it said that it wasn't available for my flight so I couldn't check in and I couldn't chose a seat but regardless I still should've gotten the seat I wanted bc of my preferences at booking. Don't pay the extra to ensure your seat it's a total rip off"
Pros: "The crew were lovely, as were the people checking us in at the airport!"
Cons: "We waited 3 hours to fix a water problem on the tarmack and were seated in the middle of a large group of school kids. Would have been happier without those 2 elements."
Pros: "Flight attendants"
Cons: "Operated by American. Delayed for 4 hours"
Pros: "I like the Airbus A330 model's that AA flies from Charlotte on European destinations. They are the former USAir A330's and they are nice both in business and economy. There are no premium economy seats on this version. And Charlotte is an excellent airport to fly from/to."
Cons: "I wish there was a premium economy offering on this plane. The first row of economy is sold as such but is really nothing like prem economy apart from additional legroom."
Pros: "The crew were trying to help and accommodate the bad situation."
Cons: "Couldn't check in online 24 hours ahead. When called Finnair on the phone, they couldn't check us in, told us we have to check in at counter, by then all good seats were taken and I couldn't sit next to my husband, and this is our honeymoon trip. It's a full flight and All upgrades were booked by then so couldn't even upgrade to business class. Requested a gluten free meal, no crew can figure out it that meal was on board (not in system nor on paper list), so at the end no food for me. I have been dying BA for last five years and this had to be the worst BA flight I have taken, absolute chaos at the check in counter and no organization. One BA counter agent Alexa tried to help but it is just too late. I expected more from BA."
Cons: "Crew was very noisy. It was an overnight flight. Waking us up at 1am for dinner not really needed."
Pros: "Flight attendant , i dont her but she was sweet and attentive."
Cons: "The leg room was really tight even for short person"
Pros: "Direct from San Diego to Heathrow."
Cons: "The seats are very small--and I am a small woman--so the flight felt cramped. The food was just ordinary airline food--little taste. Coffee served essentially black--no offer of milk or cream. Take it or leave it-- Crew helpful if you could flag someone down. Most irritating: could not check in online for some unexplained reason and required to arrive two hours early. BA does no subscribe to TSA so spent time in a line unnecessarily. AND, then the crew arrived over an hour late so the flight left at least an hour late. The crew explained that their downtown bus did not arrive and they could not arrange one. Given the close proximity to the airport, this should have been a 10 minute cab ride."
Pros: "Flight was 2 hours late taking off. Completely ruined plans we had made for our first day in London"
Pros: "Flight was not super crowded. Crew were lovely."
Cons: "No seat back entertainment...had to endure The Charlie Brown movie, Nelson Mandela biopic and lousy boxing movie. Seats extremely small...would have been awful if plane was at full capacity. Plane very dated...no frills"
Pros: "Having read horror stories online about booking with Kayak's partner Justfly, I was prepared for the worst (last-minute cancellations, partial refunds, all-around crummy service). Actually, my Finnair flight was great - it was operated by BA, so it was a nice new double-decker Airbus plane. It was maybe 3/4ths full, so I nearly had a row to myself - shoutout to the jerk who decided he was entitled to the aisle seat. The flight was smooth and easy and best of all, it cost a fraction of what the BA price for a one-way from SFO to LHR cost."
Cons: "The food on BA continues to be meh, but what most people don't realize is that ALL airline food is meh, because your tastebuds don't work properly 30k feet in the air (it's a scientific fact)."
Pros: "Travelled on B A Air Bus. I found it to be comfortable compared to previous flights operated by other airlines. Crew was excellent Overall it was a very good experience."
Cons: "The food - well it's airline food - ok but nothing exceptional."
Pros: "Nice dinner, drinks, and snack services"
Cons: "Could be a little friendlier. Lights on the whole time during a red eye was pretty annoying. Don't know if this was on purpose or a malfunction. Entertainment system was hard to see and a little outdated."
Pros: "on time friendly staff"
Cons: "more food choices"
Cons: "Smooth flight Arrived early."
Cons: "When I arrived to board my flight I was highly unsatisfied with the excessive charges I received for my luggage that was overweight (only by 7 pounds). I was not only charged an additional $100 for my second checked bag, but I was also charged $200 for the extra weight. As a college student traveling abroad for 6 months, I did not expect to be bombarded with these fees at the beginning of my journey. Due to this experience, I would like to have been notified ahead of time of the expected charges as it made me uneasy before a long flight."
Cons: "There was a very poor selection of movies to watch:( Last tim ei flew AA, and there was an absolutely huge choice . . . Would love to see that improved . . I think you have to cater for all tastes . . . and that definitely was not the case on my flight"
Pros: "Checking and boarding was lighting fast"
Cons: "There was a bit of a delay, which was due to weather and certainly not their fault. They kept us informed"
Pros: "For once the seats have enough space. Airlines think we are cattle and that they can pack as much as possible every airplane. For once I was glad to have a confortable experience."
Cons: "Our bag was not checked through to our final destination and was delivered a day later."
Pros: "Lenght of flight"
Cons: "Babies crying :("
Pros: "Everything else"
Cons: "Both the British Airways attendant who check me in in Chicago, and the British Airways attendant who checked me in in London, were not paying attention to my final destination and did not mark my luggage for my final destination."
Pros: "I have a BA - Gold card- BA lounge was good."
Cons: "Comfort- Plans are Old, Entertainments is Worst. BAD BAD BAD."
Pros: "I loved the flight it was o. Time the flight crew was great"
Cons: "Everything was perfect"
Pros: "This was a Finnair ticket on a BA flight. The price was excellent and BA was excellent."
Pros: "The flight was fantastic. It wasn't a full flight so I was moved to an exit row for more leg space. All the crew was very nice except for one lady. They distributed water often which was nice. You get options for dinner and breakfast."
Cons: "My problems began after landing. I booked a flight from LAX to Amsterdam, with a layover at Heathrow. When I originally checked in, they didn't send my things all the way through to my final destination. I had to exit the airport at Heathrow to retrieve my bag and go back through security, while trying to make my connecting flight."
Pros: "The entertainment and service was the only plus on this flight."
Cons: "When I booked my ticket a month in advance, British Airways was going to charge me extra for trying to book my seating in advance. They told me it would be free if I called 24hrs before the flight. I called 24hrs before and they told me they could not book my seats because the airport owned the seating. My first flight was with American Airlines, they gave me a boarding pass, however for my leg with British Airways, I had to go get ANOTHER boarding pass to board the flight. This airline was very inconvenient and I felt scammed booking with them. I would not recommend this airline to anyone!"
Pros: "Good entertainment. Arrived on time. Unnoticeable smooth landing."
Cons: "OK. For what I paid, I am not expecting much."
Pros: "On time arrival."
Cons: "Nothing really. Short flight so no entertainment."
Pros: "British Airways has greatly improved their customer service, the flight attendants (usually a bit gruff) were instead very kind and helpful to myself and all the passengers I saw them interact with. It really makes the flight experience better."
Pros: "The configuration of the seats are really awkward. Seems very interesting at a glance, but not so nice when you have to sit in it for 10 hours. The business class seats are very narrow. I'm pretty petite so it was okay for me, but I think an average or bigger than average person would have a hard time turning at all while the seat is in lie flat position. I had a window seat which gives you more privacy as long as you have the divider up between you and the passenger next to you. You are really arm length away from each other though. And! You can't have the divider down the entire time because they serve your meals by passing it over to you across your neighbor through the divider. The divider is also required to be down during taxi, take off and landing. So, I'd imagine it to be very awkward if you're sitting next to a total stranger. You also have to straddle over someone's legs if you want to get out of your seat to the bathroom if you have window seats."
Pros: "Movie selection was excellent."
Cons: "Uncomfortable seats and tight quarters. First class was too expensive."
Cons: "I booked the finnair flight because it was direct and charged $60 for additional bags to check in. For me this was really important since I was moving countries so I needed to check in multiple bags. But since this was in partnership with British Airways, I was charged $90 instead of $30. This was not mentioned or made clear before I made my purchase, if i buy a finnair flight then I should be charged finnair prices on baggage. If not, this should have been made clear before hand so I could have weighed my flight options. I hope you are able to provide a resolution."
Cons: "The upgrade to World Traveler Plus was $330.00 and worthless. They assured me Business Class food service. NOT TRUE. You get the usual coach class prison-type food. Non-existent flight crew service (I got one mini can of Coke the entire flight). Cramped seat next to noisy bathroom. Whole experience was bad."
Pros: "The staff were incredible and helpful. The entertainment made the flight go much faster. The airplane was comfortable and clean. Great flight"
Cons: "The passengers next to me smelled severely of body odor. I know that this isn't something the flight crew can do anything about but it made my flight really uncomfortable. Thankfully the seat next to me opened. So I loved a seat away- but even that couldn't mask the smell!"
Pros: "B.787 flight operated by BA; free wine, great food and IFE."
Cons: "Seating now so cramped it's becoming dangerous."
Pros: "Good food - two meals at just the right time."
Cons: "I regularly fly between Chicago and London and dread having to get on AA90. The planes are ridiculously old with barely any legroom and no seat-back entertainment. On this occasion, my friend sitting next to me, who is 5'10" had his knees right up against the seat in front. When the passengers in front reclined it was almost impossible to get comfortable. There is no seat-back entertainment. For some this may not be a big deal, what with iPads and other devices, but it speaks to AA's failure to consider it's customers comfort and ease on long-haul flights."
Cons: "When I got to Phl I missed my connection to London. No one seemed to care that I needed to be in England by the 18th. They kept retorting me to arrive in England on the 19th. I told them multiple times Id be flexible and go to any city in the UK just for them to get me there on the 18th. The First person I talked to said it was impossible. So I called again and talked to another person and all of a sudden it was possible. The worst part was they sent me to Boston after that I didn't get to Boston until 1:50 am and they did not compensate with hotel or anything while my flight to London was not until 8:00 am the next morning. So I spent the night in the airport. Oh and then when I finally got to London, my bag is lost and they told me I'd have it by tomorrow and I still do not have my bag and have called and they said they can't tell me anything."
Pros: "Flight attendants were very helpful and joyful. Food wasn't too bad for airplane food! :-)"
Cons: "I find it appalling that there is a charge for seat selection. Please add 10 cents to the price of a ticket and do away with the seat charge. It would buy you loyality."
Pros: "Very pleasant and efficient crew"
Cons: "Departing 50 minutes late. However, most of the time was made up enroute"
Pros: "Crew was attentive and always helpful"
Cons: "First boarding had multiple confusing instructions about who could board when"
Cons: "Flight was a mess from the crew"
Pros: "Exceeded my expectations in terms of comfort and amenities."
Cons: "Pitch is pretty tight for an international flight."
Pros: "Cabin crew was very nice."
Cons: "No food was served for an international flight. This isn’t a budget airline."
Cons: "Boarding process. Drinks service - even just more water would have been nice."
Cons: "Agents went out of their way so my wife and I could sit together. Thanks so much!"
Pros: "ease of boarding, the flight left Dulles at the perfect time, after all the crowds were gone"
Pros: "Easy, comfortable, professional, courteous service... they accommodated our seating arrangement very well as my wife and I were traveling together but had been separated in booking. Smooth take off, and landing! Cabin temperature was excellent and they provided blankets and a pillow before the flight. Just really enjoyed our trip to Iceland!"
Cons: "Our only disappointment would have been not have been seated together before as we booked on the same conference. As well bags are extra and it is not well explained about the pricing before hand. If you are traveling with a carry on and a personal at the specific dimensions then no worries but and deviation will cost!"
Pros: "Great selection of movies and tv shows. All other amenities as on Denver to Reyjkavik."
Cons: "Flight attendants not very attentive. Didn’t receive our pre-ordered meal until we asked for it on our descent into London. Finished the sandwich on the taxiway."
Pros: "Boarding from the back of the plane. Crew were nice. Inexpensive flight. Good entertainment. USB for device charging. WiFi. Overall good experience."
Cons: "The range of rows called to board at the same time was too wide. Calling fewer rows in quicker succession would help people to line up more in order from rear to front. On return flight, crew was not directing passengers during boarding for overhead storage. Causing overheads to completely fill up with poorly stored luggage when much more space could have been available. People didn’t put their carry-on wheels first, nor personal items under chairs. Many people had several shopping bags (personal items) in addition to a backpack or purse and their carry-on. Everything was strewn throughout the overheads without proper instruction. Reflection of the people more than the crew, but some instruction and intervention could have helped a lot. FYI. You have to go through passport control at the airport even if Iceland is not your final destination. Can be stressful when you have a short connection. They wait a little if the line is really crazy and it moves really fast but don’t doddle thinking you can go to your gate straight away. Also, you sometimes have to load a bus to be driven to your plane on the tarmac. You don’t want to hold this up either, or you can get some annoyed stares."
Pros: "It was the fastest route from Washington DC to Helsinki."
Cons: "Staff a bit cold (no pun intended). Aircraft are well maintained but old. Business class is not at all on par with the competition. It's called premium economy on every other airline. Outdoor disembarking and boarding in Iceland... Yes, it's true... Even with open gates at the airport. Contrary to the staff, passport control is in Keflavik... With the one hour layover... Expect to be stressed trying to make your connection. No partner airlines means no credit for using this airline. Overall... Unless I'm going to Iceland, I think I'll forego using this airline in the future. Rather be in another carrier's premium economy than their business class."
Pros: "Crew was friendly and attentive on the first leg of the flight, plane was comfortable."
Cons: "On the layover flight, they put us all in buses to head over to the plane which is normal, but then we had to wait 30/40 mins in the packed bus before loading onto the plane. We should have just stayed waiting at the gate."
Pros: "I liked everything. Unlike what others are saying food is served, you need to buy it either ahead of time are in flight. I think the most important thing is to read up on your flight level as free bags are not included in certain areas. All in all, I still give the them five starts because as long as you do your do diligence by longing onto their website everything is explained. The customer service from the crew and over the phone was wonderful. I have traveled to many countries and on many airlines, this airline is now my favorite. Also, a cool option they have is a stayover option. Basically, you can stay over in Iceland for up to 7 days with no extra charges, you can just pick up another flight to complete your trip. Excellent options for world travelers like myself who like flexibility when traveling."
Cons: "No food or drinks. No meal meal voucher despite delays of over three hours. Stuck waiting on tarmac after landing tben having to take ahuttle buses to terminal buses that idled endlessly with doors open in freezing weather as we stood and waited and waited even as the bus was full."
Cons: "Flight was more than one hour late"
Pros: "The ticketing/boarding process at IAD was easy and efficient. As for the flight itself, the crew was VERY friendly and helpful and the beget sandwich was a delight. Thank you for keeping those warm and tasty!!"
Cons: "I could barely hear the announcements on the plane, both ways. From row 21 on the way there and again from row 10 on the way back you literally couldn't hear any of the announcements at all. Granted, it was kind of nice that they weren't blaring loud but I'm not sure that's a good thing if an emergency every pops up. All of the passengers around me were asking if anyone could hear the announcements.."
Pros: "I need a cheap flight and at the time that was my best bet. Didn't have a bad time but next time I will fly direct from the US."
Cons: "Seats were so so, leg room was barely substantial. Iceland is expensive even on a layover, thankfully it wasn't very long."
Pros: "Not a single movie was offered with captioning for those of us who hate ear buds or with hearing disabilities or who prefer to watch "quietly". Many of these have already been captioned elsewhere at another time so what's with not bringing to captions along?"
Pros: "The crew."
Cons: "Having to pay for everything."
Pros: "good movies and TV shows to watch"
Cons: "they didn't ever announce when they'd started boarding they boarded everyone at once and had us jammed into a tiny area, standing around for 20 minutes we sat on the tarmac for over an hour we ran out of fuel halfway to the UK we had to make an emergency stop in glasgow, scotland to refuel sat on the tarmac in glasgow for over an hour they never offered us food or drinks, did not give any free offers. the pilot apologized once in scotland, and once on landing. no other apologies or attempts to communicate. absolutely awful experience."
Cons: "5 hours of flight in narrow sits and only a small drink cup offered. No complementary food."
Pros: "It was a smooth, direct flight."
Cons: "The young "assistant" at the gate in Dulles was completely incompetent. Even the senior person at the gate calling boarding row numbers was amazed/astonished/upset at how useless he was."
Pros: "I had no idea that no meal would be served on the flight. Ended up buying a salad that was so so. Not a wide selection. Missed on breakfast altogether on my next fligh. Wasn't asked if I wanted anything. Thought it was only coffee or tea."
Cons: "Good options and uncomfortable- no pillow provided or offered. Perhaps I should have asked?"
Cons: "The flight was and hour and a half taking off and we almost missed our cruise connection because of it"
Pros: "Great service and comfort on this flight. Reykjavik airport is not comfortable at the gates--disorganized and nowhere to sit--but that's not Norwegian's fault. Good experience with Norwegian Air!"
Cons: "To whom it may concern, In the last week I have flown Iceland Air three times. In fact had it been up to me, the first time would have been the last. But due to family traveling, our plans were set. So listed below is the detailed description of my horrible travels with your airline as well as all the added expenses it cost me. Due to all of the misshaps with Iceland air I have had in the last couple weeks, I made sure on my returning flight to check in and pick the seats for myself and the family member I was traveling with for my returning flight from Gatwick to Iceland. However when we got the gate, my ticket dinged because they had moved my seat from next to my family to the back of the plane, because they over booked the flight. This has been a disaster only because of this airline. Next time I plan on using British airways, the flight I took with them was amazing and effortless on my part!"
Pros: "Good entertainment options and device charging."
Cons: "No meal. One drink."
Pros: "The Icelandair ground staff tried their best to deal with the impossible but the end result was still totally unacceptable. See below for details."
Cons: "Incompetent ground operations. Five departure delays and gate changes. 24 hour delay. Communications and customer service disaster."
Pros: "Staff on plane."
Cons: "Hardest and narrowest seats I've ever experienced. No complementary food served on transatlantic flight and the food offered for sale was unappealing and expensive. There was a problem with staff meeting the arriving plane to open the door and allow passengers to disembark. The wait was 15 minutes for someone to show up on each leg of the trip."
Pros: "The crew were very friendly and helpful. Also our flight from DC arrived late, the connecting flight waited."
Cons: "My suitcase did not arrive (which was to be expected as we arrived late), but it did not arrive 24 hours later either. No food was served, not even a small snack. Boarding was slow and it was hard to hear the announcements. (Maybe this is an airport issue)."
Pros: "It was a nice short flight. The movie selection was good and the crew brought around drinks once we were in the air."
Cons: "I was surprised that we did not get a meal service, not even a little snack for a long hall, from D.C. to Iceland. The only service we had was the water. I probably won't fly with this airline again....Sorry."
Pros: "I liked the in flight movie selection."
Cons: "There were so many things wrong with our flight from Gatwick to NYC. The check in staff were rude and homophobic at check in, forcing my partner and I to separate for check in while we watched heterosexual partners check in together freely. The disabled toilet alarm broke as we descended into NYC and we listened to end-of-the-world death sirens as we were landing. It was not communicates that food was a microtransaction on flight and was so overpriced so we went nearly 13 hours without food because the flights were also delayed on the tarmac. The de-icing tow truck in Iceland was broken down so we were delayed two hours on the layover. On return, both Icelandair gates opened late. During the layover we were kettled in hot container units before 20 min before being bussed to the plane and held for 15 minutes. Then, the icing on the cake was landing back at Gatwick and seeing my brand new luggage I bought on the trip damaged with thr back pocked ripped out along the bottom seam. I will never again ride with these rude, price-gouging, apathetic amateurs."
Pros: "Quick, efficieny, comfy and they really treat the kids well."
Cons: "Delayed baggage reclaim at Gatwick and long immigration lines."
Pros: "The price of the business class ticket was good and it allowed a stopover in Iceland at no extra cost."
Cons: "The flight was held for 30 minutes to accommodate another arriving flight, This caused me to rush in London. I flew Saga class, but the crew stayed in the kitchen, did not help to put up luggage, welcome us on board. They gave us a plastic bottle of water. There was no choice on the menu. The tray was put in front of you. There was no drink or snack upon boarding. Other than putting the tray in front of you and collecting it, the flight crew stayed in the kitchen. There was no interaction. There was nothing special about the comfort, entertainment or food. Also I like to see the flight path, but that was not available."
Pros: "I liked being greeted at the door with a bottle of Iceland water. The flight attendants were very professional and helpful."
Cons: "No meal on the flight."
Pros: "Flight was cheapest option for a family of 6. We had mechanical issues prior to leaving DC and missed our connecting flight. Icelandair did a great job in putting us in a hotel and providing free transportation to and from the airport. Reykjavik is a beautiful city and we made the best of the layover. We plan to come back to Iceland for a longer visit to explore more."
Cons: "Next time I would plan for a stop over-- it seemed to run so smoothly that it must of happened often. We lost a day in Paris due to the delay which we were disappointed in and they did nothing for our lost hotel day that was paid for."
Pros: "The overnight flight from the states to Iceland was really nice and the airline provided pillows/blankets. The stopover in Iceland was easy to navigate in the smaller airport."
Cons: "Flight was almost an hour late departing IAD, and arrived too late in Reykjavik for us to make our connecting flight to Paris, which Icelandair did not hold at all for the many passengers who were connecting. We were sent to England, then connected with another airline after a four hour layover. Our arrival in Paris was 8 hours late, and our bags did not get to us at our hotel until four days later. This was poor customer service by Icelandair all around, that could have been avoided by holding the connecting flight for 45 minutes. It affected many passengers, not just us."
Pros: "International flight no food could not believe"
Cons: "Seats were smaller than other"
Pros: "Service was excellent."
Cons: "Have no complaints at all"
Pros: "Exit row seating was comfortable with plenty of legroom."
Cons: "Delayed flight with no communication from boarding gate. Knew about delay from Kayak hours before we heard about it at the airport."
Pros: "Entertainment system"
Cons: "No food, beverage service very limited."
Cons: "Boarding/departure was 30 min late. Sat in the back of the plane - the stench coming from the bathroom was nearly vomit-inducing."
Cons: "No food on either flight. First flight was 20 minutes late, which made our one-hour layover very stressful. We asked the Icelandair woman at the gate if our bags made it even though our layover was short and she seemed annoyed by the question, and said "Yes. All the time." Our bags did not make it, and it took an hour and a half after waiting for our nonexistent bags for 30 minutes to report them as missing, as there were two employees in the office for 30 people whose bags didn't make it."
Pros: "The crew were polite"
Cons: "The planes were late on both ends. There is no room to put even a small bag under the seat. This was the first international flight I've been on that didn't offer a meal. They didn't even have any milk."
Cons: "No food on a 5 Hours flight. Entertainment was very poor. Long flight delays made me waste most of my first day in London"
Pros: "The seating and cree."
Cons: "Unexpected reassignment of confirmed seats, and then reinstating the originally confirmed seats during boarding. This was very annoying at the least. Reykjavik airport was very cold. Did not appear they were running any heat. Landing and boarding from the turmack was not pleasant."
Pros: "Nice flight crew, seats more comfortable than I expected, in-flight entertainment system included music, movies, promotional videos...but make sure you bring your own headphones! They have some for purchase, though."
Cons: "Other than the 2 free checked bags, pretty much everything else costs extra. I didn't try any food or drinks, so I can't comment on them."
Cons: "my seat selection was changed while boarding. Was placed in front row next to door. Lots of leg room but also lots of cold air coming in from door...was freezing the whole time despite blankets"
