Pros: "Seats comfortable. Food was good."

Pros: "Seat was comfortable, good movies, etc"

Pros: "The seating in upper class is unconventional and uncomfortable."
Cons: "Reconfigure seating in upper class. We will no longer be customers for that reason alone.."

Cons: "Very cramped aisle seat and I kept being knocked by passing crewe including knocking over a cup of water."

Pros: "Everything was easy"
Cons: "Business class seats are snug for big people compared to other airlines"

Pros: "Premium economy was perfect, smaller cabin with less people, great flight."

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

Cons: "There is no entertainment, not really required on a short flight but nice when offered."

Cons: "Getting home 5 hrs later than planned"

Pros: "- Special meals available for those with dietary restrictions. - Friendly cabin crew."
Cons: "- Boarding kept getting delayed without any warning. - Duty free purchase was meant to be collected just before boarding the plane but mine was not there. This was not so much an issue but the man said he would have my bag sent to my seat and I was subsequently approached by a crew member who asked for my receipt. Which he was holding in his hand. I would have thought it would be quite easy to confirm the person without them having the receipt as the their name and seat number is on the receipt but he had to go back and check if it was okay. - Found it hard to sleep on the overnight flight due to uncomfortable seats. Would probably not be an issue in upper class. - No comment on entertainment as did not use it."

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: "Fabulous flight, light on passengers, so excellent service given by the crew. Virgin goes the extra mile on service and little perks. 747-400 planes also very comfortable, compared to the Airbus 320,"
Cons: "Nothing. Trip both ways were outstanding."

Pros: "Sharp good atention in counter"

Cons: "Missed connection to SFO"

Pros: "Amenities"
Cons: "Bed was incredibly uncomfortable in first class. It was like sleeping on the floor. People talking loudly in the bar late into the night, which made it even harder to sleep. Didn’t sleep a wink on this 10 hour flight."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Arrived 1:10 min begore departure. Customer service reps quoted me with No Show. When asked they have no courtesy to answer. Both the rep over the phone and the rep at the airport were horrible. Did I say I was traveling business class? You could imagine the economy"

Pros: "Flew virgin after long time and kind of disappointment with comfortable seats. seats space is tight and legs space as well with some box under the seat."
Cons: "seat comfortable and let space"

Pros: "Friendly crew, clean, well presented cabin."
Cons: "Flight was late (again). Food was very little for an international service (small packet of pretzels + savoury muffin."

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."

Cons: "We haven’t possiblyty to check in online. Crew smell was terrible, ladies used some perfume, some people was allergic to it"

Cons: "Everything about my experience was HORRIBLE."

Pros: "I loved the movie choice!"
Cons: "The head rest comfortability, could be softer as well as the pillows, they could also be softer."

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."

Cons: "The crew was rude."

Pros: "Crew"
Cons: "A plane from 1960? No entertainment center!"

Pros: "A large selection of movies, shows and music to choose from. Flight crews were attentive and friendly."
Cons: "The narrow space between each rows for passengers to move from their seats."

Pros: "Did not take the flight in the end"
Cons: "My first leg flight was delayed and I booked through kayak on two different airlines and the first airline did not communicate with the second airline so 5 passengers ran to make the change and arrived 1 min after the jetbridge to get on the plane was pulled away. It was incredible frustrating and could have very easily been avoided with communication from the airlines"

Pros: "Quantity of food was less for the dinner time..but overall experience was good.."

Pros: "I wish I knew the name of the crew on this flight so that credit is given where it's due. A female steward was incredibly kind to me. She allowed me space to cry in the back of the aircraft, and also gave me her personal tissues. Her care is the only reason I'd give this flight an 'okay.'"
Cons: "Unlike the incredibly kind woman, another woman on the crew was incredibly rude to me and to other passengers on the plane. She was very obviously annoyed with nearly everything on that flight. The restrooms were beyond disgusting. I have never flown on a flight with a restroom that awful; it smelled horrible and was filthy. It was reminiscent of a portable outhouse, no exaggeration. The pillow on my seat had makeup on it."

Pros: "Efficient service"
Cons: "Entertainment screens were of poor quality"

Pros: "Virgin Premium economy offers a great up-grade on economy. Seperate check in (faster), seperate boarding (earlier), better food, service and more room than economy."
Cons: "There appears to have been an increase in cost above that you expect percentage wise. There has been reduction in the quality of the food."

Pros: "Plenty of snacks and great service, with comfy seats"
Cons: "My luggage did not make it to destination :("

Pros: "Friendly, helpful, efficient staff on the ground & in the air. Great selection of movies, tv, music for each person flying. Comfortable flight. Great beverage & food choices."

Pros: "Staff excellent , as always."
Cons: "It was impossible to sleep as the plane seemed extremely cold and was very noisy."

Pros: "Crew, fabulous, Plane configuration, GENEROUS, just the best flight I've experiences in a very long time!"
Cons: "Some meal choices were a bit sparse. That's my only complaint!"

Pros: "100% best flight ever"

Pros: "ear plugs, eye mask, pillow and blanket provided. fruit, water and juice available without asking someone for it. adequate leg room, good movie selection and 2 meals with wine provided."

Pros: "."
Cons: "For an international flight, the plane was too small, cramped and uncomfortable. Food had to be purchased. No entertainment what so ever. Previous I took a VA flight to Perth from Melbourne. Same distance, bigger plane, entertainment on seat backs and a meal. This flight soured me."

Pros: "nothing"
Cons: "this is not an airline, this is a bus company"

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: "Plenty of leg room Open area for self-serve snacks and non-alcoholic drinks Food was very good Super friendly attendants"

Pros: "Al comprar el ticket no se aclaraba que a pesar de ser un vuelo internacional se debia pagar por las valijas. Venia de hacer 5 vuelos internos por Australia y en todos los casos tanto Jet como Quantas aclaraban que se debia pagar por el adicional!!!"

Pros: "Not much not to like about this experience except for cramped seating in coach."

Pros: "Dont whish to comment unless a human being can contact me and help me get the $200 travel voucher I was promised. It was so stressful its the least that can be done"

Pros: "Great cabin comfort and entertainment. Very nice place to be."
Cons: "Cabin crew less warm and professionally nice than Virgin. One point that needs addressing is that when the cabin crew or, even more so, the pilot came on the PA, the sound level was so much louder than that of the entertainment system. You had people jumping out of their seats and it was very uncomfortable."

Pros: "It was on time, and the crew was welcoming and helpful."
Cons: "The lack of healthiness of the snack--mostly sweets."

Cons: "Cold draft at all times."

Pros: "Every single aspect of this international flight was outstanding from check-in, customer service, the equipment, the meals, in-flight entertainment, etc. There is nothing I could suggest to improve this wonderful experience. Highly recommended!"

Pros: "There were lots of choices of movies. The flight was only half full, so I got two seats together to stretch out."

Pros: "Crew was very nice and accommodating"
Cons: "Food service"

Cons: "Good service good"

Pros: "Overall experience was awesome. Always love to fly delta. Nice spacious and clean aircraft. Enjoyed the entertainment system."

Pros: "The KLM ground staff were extremely helpful and reassuring when there was confusion with my ticket."
Cons: "I booked KLM flights (Cork - Tampa return) but the planes were in fact Aer Lingus and Delta. So I have no idea what KLM is like. When I checked in at Cork the ground staff could only give me a boarding card for the first flight. For the second one she said I would have to go to the Delta counter in Amsterdam. It was difficult to find a counter there or staff as check-in was all by computer. The computer kept saying 'error' when I put in my code. I eventually was directed to a KLM desk (nicely hidden). I was told that my seat no longer existed. At this point the flight was ready to board. Thankfully the KLM ground staff were extremely helpful and reassuring and upgraded my ticket to economy comfort. On the way back, I could only get a boarding card for my first flight. The second two I had to collect at the boarding gate of the second flight."

Pros: "Free rebooking"

Cons: "turbulance"

Cons: "Told to drop down a class on arrival at gate."

Cons: "Just the entertainment. Movies could be slightly better not a critic just a suggestion"

Pros: "Staff was very pleasant , polite, and accommodating"
Cons: "No complaints except for the how long is the flight, but it’s a part of a journey"

Pros: "Everything was fine, the crew was excellent. We liked that Lufthansa did provide the special meals (that we requested on-line) for our family."
Cons: "The boarding was rather slow (but not extremely so). Calling boarding by row ranges, like some other airlines do, may speed it up or make it more comfortable. The seats were not too comfortable, but within what one can expect for an Economy class --- and not too bad, either."

Pros: "Staff is great"
Cons: "Food is not good."

Cons: "There was an issue on the bus to take us to the teminal cuz a passenger took another's passenger's backpack which looked exactly the same but they made us wait on the bus til the mix up was settled. A lot of the passengers got frustrated cuz we had connecting flights and the workers by the plane didn't care including the bus driver. We finally went but we almost missed our flight .we had to literally run to the gate to make it."

Pros: "There were blankets and pillows for every seat. There are USB ports at each seat as well as headphone plugs."

Pros: "Flight was on time and flight crew was very good."
Cons: "The food was not very good. Leaving Germany, I expected better tasting food. Our food leaving the USA and going to Germany tasted much better."

Pros: "It's not only pilot/auto-pilot or only weather dependent for sure, but ride was extremely smooth. landing was fantastic. Entertainment options were great. Crew was friendly and attentive. Sucks for LH, but I had to one sitting next to me on the 8-hour flight! no crying babies, no snoring. yiey!"
Cons: "Maybe US is ahead, but my experience with 2 terminals at Hanover and Frankfurt was that information exchange isn't good. Gate number was available at the last hour or so, which then got changed. Not just this flight. many flocks of people were running around to find their new gate... also as I mentioned climbing several stories of stairs with carry-on isn't fun! Not on this flight, but on my initial departure from US to FRA, monitors said go to Gate B. I got in line for Gate B as there was some security check, then we were told there was another B?!@ We had to go down and take the bus for that...written.. No where!"

Pros: "Wi-Fi and in flight entertainment"
Cons: "I'm 6'3" cramped in economy"

Pros: "Great service. Comfortable business class seats."

Pros: "Crew and service was very good,"
Cons: "Reclining seats. Great for you but not the person behind you. It puts the screen about 10 inches from your face when the person in front of you reclines and it's impossible to lean forward and rest your head on the tray."

Pros: "The crew was pleasant, bathrooms clean. Despite a late departure we arrived on time."
Cons: "It was a bit warm on both flights from DTW to FRA and the return. I usually dress for flying assuming it will be chilly but it was the opposite, a bit warm. No individual air control either. the last meal served was a ham & cheese sandwich which tasted odd..I couldn't eat it, other meals were fine."

Pros: "Lucked out. Flight was quite empty. Travel was comfortable and easy. A smooth ride all along."

Pros: "The entertainment choices were excellent and the service never stopped. The plane was comfortable and the bathroom clean. There was some turbulence, but that is not the fault of the airline, nor did it really bother me."
Cons: "There was a snarky attendant, but not all of them were that way."

Cons: "Lack of drinking water fountains at the FRA airport"

Pros: "Great crew!"
Cons: "The sound quality of the loud speakers for the announcement was awful. The sound for the movies was also not great."

Pros: "The crew was friendly."
Cons: "We were a little late with boarding. I prefer Lufthansa for travel, but I can think of a ton more, easy to serve, more healthy and delicious menu items. The food smells good, usually, but it isn't that great. The chicken I had was fine, but the side dish (sweet potatoes) wasn't good. The salad had too much radicchio, the soft cheese was too rubbery to cut (spilled my water doing so), the cake wasn't up to German reputation. Also, one flight attendant, got her own suitcase down, at least 5 times, stretching directly above me, with her jacket in my face and never apologizing. My seat wouldn't recline, nor could other peoples. This is why I paid to choose my seat, so I could sleep, more easily but I sat upright the whole time."

Pros: "The crew did a great job. The flight turned out to be nearly 10 hours since we had 150 knot headwinds. The food and free wine made things much to tolerable. You can't go wrong with Lufthansa."

Pros: "Everything was fine even though the plane was late,"

Pros: "Great Service Great Stuff will continue with LH in the future"

Cons: "Sounds in TV doesn’t work"

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

Pros: "Great service from a super crew. On time."

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"

Cons: "No vegetarian food on return flight from Frankfurt"

Pros: "Lots of food for such a short flight."

Pros: "Uneventful."
Cons: "And packed in like rolled up silk undergarments."

Pros: "ON TIME."

Pros: "Everything about this flight was amazing. The food was fantastic, the service was better, and my comfort was always at maximum. This company makes all American domestic companies pale in comparison."

Pros: "When my traveling companion suddenly became acutely ill the flight attendants stepped right in and assisted him to an available Business Class area where he could be cleaned up (including changing his soiled shirt to a clean one from the 1st Class supplies) and made more comfortable. They checked on him frequently during the rest of the flight and made arrangements to get us assistance off the airplane in Detroit and through the crowded airport in record time in order to get him to the ER as soon as possible. We are so grateful to them for their caring help during what could have been a very embarrassing situation."
Cons: "We had no complaints or suggestions. Flying with Lufthansa was a wonderful experience during a difficult situation."

Pros: "Flight cancelled see above"

Pros: "It was a relatively short flight. Boarding went well and efficiently. Flight crew was attentive."

Pros: "Overall, the Lufthansa service was excellent. In particular, the food service in economy class was extraordinarily good."
Cons: "We were seated at the end of a row beside the entrance to restrooms at the back of the plane, and on occasion the space beside us became a gathering place for groups of passengers, talking loudly."

Pros: "Tremendous selection of movie entertainment"
Cons: "Boarding process was a bit confusing"

Pros: "My flight from Frankfurt to Detroit on Lufthansa was very enjoyable. The crew were great. They were very friendly and attentive to the passengers. I would choose to fly on Lufthansa again in the future."

Pros: "Staff , food , wine"
Cons: "Sat too close to the toilets , bad wafting smells. Only 1 earphone on my head set worked, unless I jiggled the plug. The plug did not fit neatly into the jack ."

Pros: "The flight was on-time and very smooth. Check-in and baggage drop were incredibly easy. I also liked the self-scanning of the boarding passes to board. Great number of options on personal entertainment screen - including movies, tv shows, and music that people actually want to listen to! Great flight overall."

Pros: "Service by crew on board."
Cons: "Delay after boarding flight."

Cons: "Only the lunch wasn't good, there was only pasta at the moment"

Pros: "the communication was very clear, and the crew was very friendly"
Cons: "this flight delated almost 30 mins, but with clear communication. I just hope those people who need to transfer will make to the other flights."

Cons: "It's KLM. What else do you need to know."

Cons: "Keep the temperature at a more reasonable level. Blankets + two layers of clothing was definitely not enough."

Pros: "KLM are our airline of choice. A great full-service carrier with impecable standards."
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Customer care was super supportive"
Cons: "Inflight sandwiches"

Pros: "Service and crew amazing friendly and went out of the way to Make u feel special even the pilots gave updates thru out the flight"

Pros: "The crew"
Cons: "Seat comfort"

Pros: "The crew are amazing! Attentive and friendly."
Cons: "The seats could have been bigger."

Pros: "The earphones for out two seats only worked intermittently, but the Purser, Lee-Ann handled it professionally and pleasantly. That was the only disappointment in an otherwise pleasant flight"
Cons: "The earphones could have worked!"

Pros: "The crew were very nice, food was tasty, seat comfortable and the entertainment great as well. Will be flying KLM again soon :)"

Pros: "Seating is tight. The crew was great !"
Cons: "As we landed we had to wait on the plane for an hour and a half because another plane (Spirit) was in our “parking spot.” This made it very difficult for people and connecting flights."

Pros: "Friendly staff, great service on board. Way better value and service compared to the tacky Irish competition flying the route. Delta all the way"

Pros: "The crew were amazing and the flight was very smooth."
Cons: "Keep up the good work"

Pros: "Once aboard the plane, all went well and I experienced excellent service from the cabin attendants."
Cons: "The flight was delayed (again!) for some 40 minutes and I was worried that I would miss my connection flight in Atlanata. Fortunately the pilot made up for the delay (probably costing the airline thousands in fuel). It seems these days that every KLM flight I take is delayed. This stretch goes back to 2015! Yet KLM prides itself as being punctual. Not the KLM that I have been flying!"

Cons: "Poor food, flight attend and finally baggage missing. Overall experience is extremely bad."

Pros: "Very attentive crew. Attended to needs immediately. Took a lot of time with each person when someone had something to say."
Cons: "The seat I had with no seats in front of me was very small. Much smaller than the other economy seats because the tray table and video screen were in the armrests. Paid extra for the legroom by ended up losing it side to side. Really had to squeeze into the seat."

Pros: "Staff very pleasant"
Cons: "Evening snack was not the greatest breakfast was pretty food"

Pros: "Shirt flight but well catered, boarding was efficient and quick."
Cons: "Not lots of legroom but adequate for an hour long hop. It was cold on board and also had to board via steps from outside"

Pros: "I am so grateful to have been provided delicious and filling vegan meals on this long flight. Thank you for offering a dietary option that is compassionate toward animals and contributes less to climate change! Now if only the planes were powered by clean, renewable energy... Hopefully that will become a reality someday very soon! Oh, and also the crew on this flight was exceptionally kind and helpful. Thank you so much!"
Cons: "I did not enjoy the turbulence, which I suppose is unavoidable. More importantly, I felt quite guilty about the greenhouse gas emissions of my flight. I have decided to cut down on my air travel as much as possible as a way of reducing my carbon footprint."

Pros: "He missed it due to having a 32 minute layover, which he ran all the way to board."
Cons: "he had no choice but to look at the closed door of his flight, and wait an additional 7 hours and they didn't even give him a voucher for food. I'm his mother, I'm currently visiting family in Scotland, so couldn't help him much. I'm pretty disgusting and disappointed by the whole experience."

Pros: "Good service onboard, good food. On time."

Pros: "Overall everything was ok."
Cons: "Not that I cared at the time but having been asked for a rating on “entertainment” - there was none. Cheap and cheerful really. No extras over the likes of RyanAir."

Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Flight was delayed for 15 min resulting in passengers rushing to make their connecting flights.but staff kept passengers informed."
Cons: "Flight departing late."

Pros: "Boarding was quick, Flight on time....just a regular service and plane"
Cons: "Terminal 3 Manchester is not worth staying longer then necessary, loud music, crowded....old"

Pros: "All cabin crew were courteous. Refreshments were light. Check stuff were helpful, they did devise that the flight was full and due to space hand luggage would prefer to be put in hold free of charge. We did not have any problem with this. Plane was clean."

Pros: "Crew were friendly. Flight was comforyable smooth and on time. Nice snack."

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

Pros: "Speed, crew, and reliablity."
Cons: "Food wasn't good, no entertainment or accessory plug ins, and seats were worn out! Not comfortable at all. Great leg room though."

Cons: "full flight, no upgrade possible"

Cons: "Luggage (being handled by Air France in Basel) was first marked as delayed... nothing of the flight was in the end put on the belt and instead dropped off at Lost and Found. Ridiculous service since this was in no way announced to the people waiting for their suitcase."

Pros: "Good food, good entertainment system, comfortable seating."
Cons: "Only one toilet working in business class. A crew member told me that it was a decision to fly with only one toilet to ensure no delay. There was a disgusting stench of sewerage for the complete flight from Amsterdam to Johannesburg. This was in all likelihood due to the broken toilet on the left side."

Pros: "Much more civilised for the same cost (or less) as the budget carriers. Proper food and drinks included as is the norm with international flights even though it's a very short haul."
Cons: "The stinky guy behind me, but that's not the airline's fault."

Cons: "The seats are too hard to sit in for more than an hour or two, and would sometimes not stay reclined. There were no free snacks or food, and it was a five hour flight."

Pros: "In general everything is very good- clean, professional, friendly."
Cons: "I am not crazy about how they board the plane (random) but it works fine. Was in economy and the seats felt smaller than other (domestic) carriers."

Pros: "The crew was friendly, and I enjoyed the available movies and music."
Cons: "There was only one beverage service the whole time and I was never offered a snack. I could have purchased food, but 7.5 hours is a long time for only one beverage service. Bring food on board if you don’t want to buy it during the flight."

Cons: "Boarding was not very efficient."

Cons: "Extremely poor communication about flight delays and missed connections. I’ll never fly icelandair again. Terrible experience."

Pros: "It's just so nice on a long flight to not be jammed in like sardines!"
Cons: "Missing our original connection because Icelandair had to extract fuel, and having to wait an extra 4 hours meant we had a stressful leg to Chicago. The bus we booked had its last trip only 10 minutes after we landed and we just made it - not without some worry."

Pros: "Crew was good. Seats were OK."
Cons: "Boarding at Reykjavik was a mess, not helped by the flight being delayed by over an hour. Part of the problem was that the airline just kept moving the boarding time back by 10 minute intervals. No seating near the gate, so everyone was just having to stand there..."

Pros: "The plane was fantastic! It was clean, comfortable, and and appeared well-maintained."

Pros: "Adequate leg room. Comfortable seat with adjustable head rest. Good selection of in flight movies to help pass time on a long trip. I purchased a sandwich that quite good. Flight attendants were courteous and helpful. On the long leg of our flight we were given a bottle of water as we boarded."
Cons: "The cabin was quite warm after boarding and before departure. The flight attendants were courteous and helpful, but could have come through one more time to refresh water and see if other food or snacks were needed. The announcements did not come through the headphones and were difficult to hear."

Pros: "Staff very friendly flight on time overall good experience."

Pros: "Entertainment and crew"
Cons: "Offer some snack"

Pros: "Short and convenient flight"
Cons: "Crew was not very pleasant , food and snacks only for purchase , check-in baggage is too expensive."

Pros: "Crew was very helpful and friendly. Seat comfort was fine. Entertainment is nice with free movies, music and Iceland travel video blogs. Can do a stay over in Iceland for no extra, up to 7 days, we plan to try that sometime."

Pros: "Staff"
Cons: "No food at all, everything need pursch, also want donation to them. They cancel my return ticket one month after i purch because they do not have enough customs ."

Pros: "Everything"

Pros: "Flight crew was nice."
Cons: "No food, poor selections on entertainment. Expensive airport food and drink options. Wouldn't fly them again."

Cons: "seats really uncomfortable"

Pros: ". excellent handling from ground to ground. Equipment and care were awesome."

Pros: "Good landing."
Cons: "Poor service at every level of customer service where good service should be given. The worst service I experienced was at the ticket counter in IAD and Glasgow."

Pros: "-free charging of cell phone. - staff is pleasant - good movie selection - direct flight"
Cons: "-cramped seats. -no free snacks, food prices were outrageous (but we are a captive audience.) -only one drink served for 7 hour flight. - Icelandair, always exit through the gift shop."

Pros: "Flight good, plane clean and comfy, service good, bags checked through to final destination in spite of stopover in Iceland."
Cons: "I inquired about baggage prior to our flying get. I was told that we would not be able to check bags through to final destination due to there being a stopover. When it turned out the bags were checked through, we were unprepared for the overnight without our luggage. Could have been greT had I been given the correct information."

Pros: "More relaxed travelling experience that with many other airlines. From check-in right through transfers and to arrival my experience was very positive. Staff were friendly and helpful. There weren't any real occasions where I needed something changed or sorted, which shows that the pre-work was excellent and works. Thank you."

Pros: "It was a boeing and not an Airbus so feels safer"
Cons: "None of the movies were captioned!"

Pros: "The plane, crew, and flight were smooth and on time."
Cons: "The airport in Reykjavik is undergoing a lot of work so it posed some challenges and crowding during our layovers. It is also very expensive for lunch."

Pros: "The inflight crew were pleasant and attentive. It was a very nice touch to offer children kids meals and a bag with play items and headphones."
Cons: "The food options were extremely limited."

Pros: "Airline crew and overall experience was excellent."

Pros: "Boarding was very fluid. Flight attendants were professional."
Cons: "Seats were a little hard on my back."

Pros: "The crew was very friendly and helpful."
Cons: "Everything was decent."

Cons: "My flight was"

Pros: "The staff was friendly and the plane was fine."
Cons: "Our flight was delayed by a little over an hour, however there was no communication with what was going on. We were just left standing there waiting. I find it always helps to let people know what the hold up is. It was a simple explanation that our plane had not arrived yet."

Pros: "Friendly crew, boarding via two doors made for a quicker boarding experience."
Cons: "No meal or even snacks for transatlantic flights! Even by today's standards, that's stingy. United, American and all European carriers serve a minimum of 1 meal. Also had shuttle boarding and deplaning for all flights. This negated any gains made by front and rear boarding. Also be advised, Keflavik airport (Icelandair's hub) is usually mobbed and was not built to handle the volume it sees during most months."

Pros: "Staff very courteous and efficient."

Pros: "On time"

Cons: "No meal.."

Pros: "I like that we boarded back to front"
Cons: "check-in was a mish mosh"

Pros: "Lots of room in the overhead cabinet since I wasn't able to gate-check my giant backpack. Good selection of beverages."
Cons: "Did not like the flight attendants. First time I can ever truly say that. They were downright rude. Didn't love that I couldn't gate-check my backpack but there ended up being plenty of room overhead. Upon arrival, everything was extremely confusing. Baggage claims weren't labeled for the correct flight. Super frustrating!!!"

Cons: "Didn't like paying Saga Class fare and having one of my two bags left in transfer. Receiving golf bag +24 hrs later"

Pros: "Crew were very courteous and helpful. Plane was clean, and seemed newer. Seats were comfortable in a 3-3 configuration but as usual space was still tight in economy class."
Cons: "Boarding seemed a little chaotic and it was very crowded. Not enough seating for the number of people who were travelling at the gate at Glasgow."

Pros: "Adequate space around seat; movies"
Cons: "Flight delayed >hour with passengers already on plane which made being on a 7+ hour flight even longer; terminal at Reykjavik was very crowded without adequate seating; food very expensive and long lines."

Cons: "No kosher food in the menu"

Pros: "I loved the videos about Iceland! It was very informative. The visibility on the ground when we landed wasn't very good, so we had to make a few attempts to land, but the pilot did an excellent job!"

Cons: "Economy comfrort seats were the same as economy seats!! This was a real gyp!! A lot of extra money for a free snack!! Gyp!! This comment was meant for the Seqttle - Reykjavik segment!!"

Pros: "Great movies and tv - all free and perfect for a long flight"
Cons: "They are having trouble with their growth - too many customers for the level of organization at the airport"

Pros: "I liked that they loaded the back of the plane first. It make loading faster. On our flight from Reykjavik to Boston they loaded the front and the back plane at the same time. I enjoyed the Iceland choices for documentaries. The flight attendants were very professional. I got to see Greenland!"
Cons: "I wear a size 14 pants. I am a bit overweight but not obese yet there was only about 1" of clearance on either side of my hips and the edge of the seat when I sat down. I also had an aisle seat the people going down the aisle were frequently bumping my arm and shoulder. What if someone were larger than me? What if they couldn't fit into the seat? We also hit some turbulence but that might be standard fare for the route."

Pros: "The airline people were kind."
Cons: "Not knowing about the smaller carry on standard size. I was expecting to see the same size but did not."

Pros: "The crew were all competent and pleasant and the plane was relatively new and of average (that is, terrible, but the average nowadays is terrible) comfort."
Cons: "Food and drinks, other than simple soft drinks, were for sale only. This is an overseas flight--feed us. And the movie selection is rather anemic."

Pros: "Crew, Reykavic Airport"
Cons: "Really surprised there wasn't a meal served on a trans Atlantic flight. Seat didn't recline in exit row"

Pros: "Quick flight"
Cons: "Airport in Iceland needs updating...too crowded and no seating."

Pros: "I liked the idea of two short hops"
Cons: "I disliked completely the lack of communication with the airline from the website that has no email, to the phone number that doesn't get answered. THEN - thought Kayak did a great job updating me regarding the flight delays - thought ICELANDAIR did a rotten job about doing the same. At Glasgow Airport there was no one to ask about the two flight delays....the board in the departure lounge and the Kayak emails were giving contrary information, with NOONE to ask, the flight was 3 1/2 hours late ! 3 1/2 hours on a 2 hour flight - DISGRACEFUL. and at Iceland, it was sheer bedlam, as all in coming and outgoing flights were delayed - 17 flights were leaving at the same time ! No food on the plane except for purchase with a credit card -for a $1300 seat - really ? AND at boarding there was one girl who insisted on keeping the "premier travelers" separate from the rest, but we all got on the same bus - so it was stupid and a waste of time very disappointed indeed. used to travel annually Boston to Glasgow via Icelandair, - remember why I stopped using this Airline. extremely poor customer service"

Cons: "The layout of the plane was not the same as described as when I checked in the day before. The seat I choose in line with an exit aisle (row 10), was in fact not, therefore, creating less leg room as initially unintended."
