Pros: "Amazing !"
Cons: "Nothing all good really"

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

Pros: "Crew was generally nice and caring."
Cons: "Of course coach seat was not super comfortable. And speaker and screen at my seat did not work."

Pros: "Crew was nice"
Cons: "Screens have poor color quality Seat too small Legroom cut into by electronics box Row 45 next to bathroom and no windows"

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

Cons: "Seats were really old and outdated"

Pros: "The flight was so delayed I missed my connecting flight to jfk."
Cons: "The flight was so delayed I missed my connecting flight to jfk."

Cons: "Poor communication about the reasons for our 4 hour delay. Also, we purchased Economy X, which should have given us priority boarding, but we were told we had to stand in the general admission queue."

Cons: "Getting home 5 hrs later than planned"

Pros: "Meals were excellent and plane was very clean. Economy delight is definitely an upgrade worth considering with extra leg room and space in front of you in general."
Cons: "Boarding can get crowded so don't be in a rush"

Pros: "Provides the service you'd expect from an international carrier. Boarded on time, seat actually reclines, meals, baggage, seat assignments are included in the price. Staff treat you well and the price isn't bad."
Cons: "Virgin website is slow and not intuitive. Couldn't get seat assignment until i was at the gate. No explanation why. Boarding announcements delivered via ESP. Half of the passengers were still in the boarding area because no one heard announcements. Arrived 30 min early but had to wait on the tarmac for 45 min for a parking gate. Baggage delivery at JFK took forever."

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: "Service, pilot updates, and seating were all great!"

Pros: "The flight crew was phenomenal, especially Daniella. Somehow we wound up with seats right next to the bathroom door, which would have been a pretty uncomfortable situation for a variety of reasons, but the flight wasn't full, and she helped us find a suitable place to sit. Also, my wife and I usually take our tea with honey vs. milk and sugar. Even though honey is usually one of the options for tea, she found a way to accommodate our request. The lunch meals were the best I can remember in a long time on an airline flight. They might have been the best I've ever had. The chicken curry was authentic, flavorful and spicy. Frankly my outbound flight had problems. My luggage got damaged. The transfer experience in Manchester left a LOT to be desired. I wasn't planning to use Virgin Atlantic again, but this flight crew (Daniella especially) redeemed Virgin Atlantic. They were attentive, pleasant, diligent."
Cons: "Only thing I didn't like about this flight was the boarding area. Once you get into that the area, you don't really have access to appetizing food (only vending machines) or even restrooms. That's one thing that could be improved."

Pros: "Friendly staff, so much food/snacks were offered. Good movies available."
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "Queue at boarding gate for upper class ticket holders Bus transfer to plane - Virgin is not a LoCo airline! Upper Class Service was slow - understaffed?"

Pros: "Service, meals, friendly and attentive FAs"

Pros: "The crew were friendly."
Cons: "The food was okay. There were more tasty options traveling to Heathrow versus from Heathrow to the NYC. The boarding process was a mess. We had to wait in an enormous line and then take a bus to the flight."

Pros: "The cabin crew were excellent!"
Cons: "I paid extra for Economy Delight seats for me and my wife. Shortly after take-off, our calm and comfortable more or less empty section of the aircraft was colonised by an extended family of Orthodox Jews in a kind of airborne West Bank situation. They weren’t in our section of the cabin at all to start with, and I don’t know why they were apparently able to get a free upgrade that I had to pay £100 for. We went from being in an almost empty cabin to being basically sat in the middle of an Orthodox Jewish kindergarten. It was awful! They were noisy, messy, were constantly getting in and out of their seats, the back of my seat kept getting kicked, and there was even a baby crawling around the aisle. We were surrounded. I have no idea whether this is characteristic of Orthodox Jewish family life, or just a completely inconsiderate family. They didn’t exactly ruin my flight, but they didn’t make it enjoyable either. I asked to be moved. The cabin crew were great and acknowledged the difficulty of the situation. My wife lost her window seat but at least we still had the legroom and peace and quiet."

Pros: "The service, the drinks, the crew were friendly and professional. Entertainment choices were excellent.0"
Cons: "The space was a bit cramped and the poxket in front of the chair to jeep things was broken."

Pros: "Legroom, lovely staff and all round good flight"

Cons: "Older media entertainment screen with hard to use touch interface."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "I had to run for almost 2 miles every time I had to change the flight. On the way to India they lost my one bag, and on the way back to US they lost my both begs."

Pros: "Safety. Service."
Cons: "Lavatory was icky and other passengers messy."

Pros: "Quite a big choice of movies and TV shows to watch, more than enough for an eight hour flight. Normal headphone plugs so you can use your own."
Cons: "I booked together with my wife, yet we were allocated seats apart and were not able to be reassigned together. The leg room was so tight that I could not pick up things off the floor without putting my head in the next persons lap. Though the cabin crew were smiley and friendly, it was hard to get their attention when needed. The PA system is much louder than the entertainment, so announcements were ear bursting. The dinner selections ran out early, so a good proportion did not get their choice."

Pros: "Everything went very fast and smooth. I didn't have to queue for the boarding. The Sita were very comfortable, the crew very friendly and halepful and the selection of the movies A+."

Pros: "Choice of movies was good, but told the flight over was better. I flew another airline. Had no issue checking one bag in for free, but I think that is standard on an international flight."
Cons: "Entertainment systems take up foot/bag space underneath the seats. Was not able to get more than one glass of wine, even though I missed the first beverage service, that is my fault though, but I don't recall it being an issue getting a drink between services. Entertainment systems had contrast issues and it seemed like a lot of people 8 - 10 had issues since they were using iPads instead of the built in monitors. A lot of wear showing on the entertainment systems remotes."

Pros: "The speed of boarding, then the frequency of service. Cabin crew were very dedicated. All in all, a very smooth flight. Ps. my first Virgin was called Carole. ;)"
Cons: "The food left a lot to be desired, but apart from my flight on Emirates to Auckland, Airoplne food does tend to be somewhat......mmmm not sure what the word is, but room for improvement describes it."

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

Pros: "The staff was so helpful and upbeat and somehow they stayed that way the whole 8 hour flight. This was economy btw! More good things: Comfy seat, personal entertainment screen, really nice food. One free checked bag, bathroom was bigger, (it may have been a handicapped bathroom)."
Cons: "Nothing was a problem at all. (I saved "excellent" for the things I really wanted to emphasize)"

Pros: "The crew were excellent."
Cons: "Seats were ridiculously uncomfortable. The seat cushions were worn and had no padding. Very few movie, Show, music and game choices to choose from. The audio input didn't work in my seat. Major fail for a 13+ hour flight."

Pros: "Food was great, plenty of it also"
Cons: "I'm 6'4" and there was no acknowledgement by the crew that I was squashed into a tight seat."

Pros: "Staff was friendly and welcoming."
Cons: "There was nothing not to like."

Pros: "Easy check in and boarding."
Cons: "Uncomfortable seats and poor food."

Pros: "Virgin Atlantic had a very attractive decor.Food was great& staff as well. Polite and professional ."
Cons: "The seat I had was a bit snug leg wise and recline wise. Could not get comfortable at all."

Cons: "Never seen an international flight charges checked in luggage $130 US dollars a piece"

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

Pros: "I liked the entertainment system, free adult beverages and boarding process"
Cons: "I don't like that they have you pay extra for picking seats that have no extras. No preboarding. No extra legroom."

Pros: "Service, food, etched all fine"
Cons: "Fees to assign seats in advance are very high. Sat on the Tarmac a while before takeoff and after landing."

Pros: "Food and beverage choices excellent"

Cons: "Cold draft at all times."

Pros: "The crew was very good with the passengers and attentive"
Cons: "The leg space is very tight, it was very hard to sit specially for longer flights it's not that comfortable"

Pros: "free wine, good food, and friendly cabin crew? what more could you want? oh, a good variety of entertainment. I watched two documentaries and "The Lobster" a great choice, never would have seen it otherwise."
Cons: "The seat cushions are really hard and not very comfortable to sit on for a long flight. If you could get a higher density foam that would be great. my bum was a bit sore/uncomfortable."

Cons: "45 minute delay on runway after landing was very very frustrating."

Pros: "Staff were friendly and flight was clean. Lots of movies to watch."
Cons: "The seats gets smaller each year. For a seven hour flight, the seats are very uncomfortable, no space to move. The flight with the hand held remote control TV had poor visual quality. It was hard to watch movies with dark background."

Pros: "Good was decent."
Cons: "This VS25 flight, whatever airplane it was felt old and the v poorly designed "seat back pocket" sat so low and protruded out so much that it pushed against your knees. V uncomfortable."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "The food I had food poisoning"

Pros: "Extremely uncomfortable seats in the Economy section and a very confusing remote control to maneuver the entertainment screen. The crew was excellent so it's not their fault. The food was passable but those white bread rolls got to go. My luggage didn't arrive so let's hope they bring it today."

Pros: "Flight D001 (Delta / Virgin, LHR to JFK) Staff were terrific. The food was the best I've had so far (and I fly a lot!) The choice of entertainment was varied and excellent. Flight was smooth and captain was very communicative."
Cons: "Chair kept snapping back to position from recline (33E). Man behind me kept banging on the screen behind my head Inspite of announcement not to do do from cabin crew. If they could catch ppl doing that and say something that would be great :-) (although I realize if course the this isn't their fault.)"

Cons: "Everything was fine... I should have packed a snack because I’m always hungry! Will travel Delta again!"

Pros: "Fast service and precise timing"

Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Staff very courteous and professional"
Cons: "None"

Pros: "A3A"
Cons: "Ĺ"

Cons: "The overhead bin did not stay down low enough so that I could place my bag in. It would lower then before I could place my bag raise slightly by a few inches. For someone of my height (5’5”) that was problematic. Fortunately another passenger saw my dilemma and held the bin lower to its full opening capacity. This also momentarily slowed down the boarding process."

Cons: "Not applicable"

Pros: "Everything is perfect"
Cons: "N/a"

Pros: "Smooth. Fast."

Cons: "See above airport connection disaster...."

Pros: "I didnt ever purchase that ticket"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Being scammed by the Chinese, China Southern"

Pros: "The prompt transfer"
Cons: "My one piece of hard shell luggage has a special, difficult way of latching. As long as nobody opens it, it stays fine for shipping. The problem is your greedy Chinese luggage handling thieves who work for your airlines in Chinese airports. Whenever they can steal from luggage, they always try to steal from passengers, particularly American. I have had multiple experiences with theft from Chinese airports. I have been to China and back to the USA five times. Many times, items have disappeared from my suitcases in Chinese airports. That is why I decided not to move to China to live but instead move to Indonesia. However, if I fly any plane that transfers my luggage in China, I can usually expect to have my luggage robbed. Although this time, nothing was missing from my luggage, that fact that your people had to wrap my suitcase in plastic (because they did not know the secret for relatching it) and resend it a day later, that is proof that one of your airport personnel opened it to see what he could steal and then got caught because he could not close it again. I am really really really tired of you Chinese thieves. I blame all of you because you are all a product of Mao Tse Tung’s godless atheistic evil society. The Chinese have proven to me again and again that they cannot be trusted. A Kong Chinese official even stole my Ohio driver’s license when I transferred through that airport on a previous trip to Jakarta. I understand your problem. If you fire all dishonest luggage department workers, you will not have any workers remaining. That is why you will always rank as a third world backward primitive society even though you buy expensive airplanes that you don’t build and dress your people up like professionals which they aren’t. AS LONG AS Chinese airport luggage people are dishonest and cannot be trusted, your entire airline is a failure. That is not prejudice against Chinese people. I know some honest good ones. They are all Christians, the kind of good people the corrupt Chinese government hates. An atheistic country is an evil country. Do not expect to be respected by honest people. You people clearly do not deserve it. You are still in the stone age when it comes to professionalism which requires total honesty, a quality which your luggage handlers consider to be dispensable. Such cave men they are!"

Pros: "Stewards"

Pros: "loved the cookies!"
Cons: "Wish there were more legroom on those little planes."

Cons: "see above"

Cons: "It was fine, just tiring due to the length of the flight."

Cons: "Asked for ONE piece of bread, and such a big company. Didn’t have ONE piece of bread to provide. Shame. But not surprised, considering the focus they had with onboard shopping, cut coat, and generate revenue very oriented."

Pros: "It was cancelled and scheduled next day"

Pros: "Though departure was delayed 45 minutes, service on board was superb. wine flowing, food great, Baileys for dessert, and great movie selection"

Pros: "Everything"

Cons: "See above. What a disaster!"

Pros: "Superb seats. Wide, enough length to strech the legs. Good entertainment - overall - loved it!"
Cons: "Food could be a bit tastier ..."

Pros: "Attentive and friendly staff, great food and plenty of drinks!!!"

Pros: "Great crew and plane"
Cons: "Inconvenient terminal from connecting flight. Boarding procedure was a zoo"

Cons: "See above. Going both ways..."

Pros: "Still use silverware and provide blankets, pillows, headphones, nice clean plane"
Cons: "The tv monitor had very limited options and froze about every 5 minutes. The screen was either very unresponsive or would freeze"

Pros: "The Germans are known for their efficiency and Lufthansa followed through with that. From the check-in process to cabin service, all was top notch. As I was sitting near the front of economy, any "extra" economy plus meals were handed out as to avoid waste. I was the recipient of a delicious Caprese salad. A nice treat."

Pros: "Friendly crew. Sufficient beverage and food service."
Cons: "For an international flight on Lufthansa, the 747-8 seats pale in comparison to the A380 seats. Thinner and less comfortable. Seats and armrests were dirty, did not look like they had been cleaned in a very long time."

Cons: "See previous comment. Airline service needs to be vastly improved."

Pros: "Crew, food and entertainment were fine"
Cons: "Notoriously, on several flights I have recently taken, my economy seats do not recline at all. On long distance flights this is very uncomfortable! And on this flight from Frankfurt to NYC, my bag was lost, making a claim at the Lufthansa baggage dept took a very long time and the clerk said little, explained nothing and seemed annoyed with my questions."

Pros: "Everything in order and on time."
Cons: "N/A"

Pros: "WiFi access"

Pros: "Multiple bathrooms located downstairs. Modern new plane"
Cons: "Movies were old. No real new releases. Food was terrible"

Pros: "Good overall experience"

Pros: "Great flying on an A380"

Pros: "Dissatisfied!!!"
Cons: "See comments above."

Pros: "Great crew very attentive."
Cons: "Plane was old. Toilets were an issue. Entertainment centers were slow. Time to retire the, 747's"

Cons: "staying 11h with no assistant"

Cons: "Not enough water was offered by flight attendants Wasn't offered an after dinner drink One of the flight attendant wasn't very pleasant"

Cons: "'Sorry we have chicken no more, so here get this ravioli' in other words no choice for me. No flight information."

Pros: "The whole experience was GREAT!"

Cons: "On May 16, 2017, there was a group of Albanian and American passengers rushing through Frankfurt Airport to catch the connecting flight to New York. Their first flight (LH#1425) from Tirana to Frankfurt was 45 minutes late causing them to eventually miss their connecting flight. At this point, the passengers were asked to show their passports, separating the US citizens from the rest. All the US citizens were loaded on a bus and provided hotel, dinner and breakfast. The Albanian citizens were moved to the lower level of the airport where they were left to freeze all night. Some of the passengers were elderly and had their heart or high blood pressure medications in their luggage that they didn’t have access to. One US-Albanian citizen was asked to separate from his Green-Card holder wife in order to receive the US citizen treatment…"

Pros: "The seat was very comfortable"

Cons: "They change the gate for transfer last minute"

Cons: "Boarding was a little chaotic. Everyone kind of ran up."

Pros: "The 747-8 is a nice new plane. The skinny Economy class seats are surprisingly comfortable. The entertainment system is good; I liked getting the feed from the forward-facing camera."
Cons: "Since last I flew with them, Lufthansa has added annoying charges like so many other airlines (but not usually full-service international airlines). Advance seat reservation was $30 per leg and seat. (I paid only for the overnight eastbound flight; on the return I found enough seats available by online check-in just after it opened.) One overweight bag was $100. Considering these charges, Singapore Airlines is the better choice for FRA-JFK. Minor quibbles with the entertainment system: * Front-facing camera points very low. Would be nice to see other planes during taxi (not just their wheels). * New "live map" during flight added useless gimmicks (view of earth from space), removed data (altitude, speed, outside temperature)."

Pros: "everything"
Cons: "none"

Cons: "The plane was half way full, i had the seat in the economy section same like a big guy, at one point i asked the flight attendant if i can change my seat to another economy seat (I didn't want a free upgrade) because the guy in my right could fit in his seat with the arm rest down and it was getting uncomfortable for me. She told me if i want a upgrade, witch I refuse to get and didn't help me in any way with the problem that i had. I think for cases like this even though it's an economy seat it still cost 750$ and for a 9h flight witch transformed in a 14h flight because weather condition and fueling problems, flight attendants should be more mindful with the guest confort rather than upselling. Lufthansa it's a geat company with great airplanes but i think that in order to get people to come back you should treat people in the economy class like normal people that pay a price nothing close to the word economy"

Pros: "I loved everything."

Pros: "Nothing. Flight never happened."
Cons: "Lufthansa rebooked me on BA, and stripped away my Premium Upgrade seating, giving me economy, an aisle seat next to a bathing-challenged male. It was disgusting and re-injured my leg wound. I AM OUT SIX HUNDRED DOLLARS BECAUSE I HAD TO PURCHASE A TICKET UPGRADE TO GET HOME. RIDICULOUS. I MIGHT SUE."

Cons: "I booked through Kiwi.com and they couldn't handle my special food request (kosher meal). Somehow it didn't reach Lufthanza at all. As a result I had nothing to eat during the entire transatlantic flight."

Pros: "Overall a pretty good flight."
Cons: "The in-flight wasn't working, so no movies on a nine hour flight."

Cons: "Child car seat lost although checked with luggage."

Pros: "the staff is top notch"

Pros: "Great plane Great food Great movies"

Pros: "The crew was very efficient and accommodating"
Cons: "Most of the announcements were hard to hear and understand"

Pros: "I liked the food and entertainment"
Cons: "I have flown with Lufthansa before and this is the first time I have had a cabin crew be rude. She came over to ask me if I wanted to switch my seat with someone and I said I enjoy my window seat and the middle seat she wanted me to switch to makes me feel castrophobic. She then proceeded to role her eyes and just walk away. It was very rude and disturbing of her to do that to a passenger. And on top of the rude service, my chair was not reclining causing the flight to be uncomfortable. I feel as though I have to think twice before traveling with Lufthansa again."

Pros: "Free upgrade to business class!"

Pros: "The flight crew was wonderful! Friendly and really attentive the whole trip!"

Pros: "There are some lounge seats for sleeping. There are power ports next to these seats"
Cons: "€5 for a Fanta in the airport. Food choices are limited and expensive. Next time I'll buy food in Sweden. Shockingly, it's cheaper"

Cons: "Leg space is tight"

Pros: "The TV system"
Cons: "Can't check in on your website"

Cons: "My baggage was lost. Still no word about it."

Cons: "KLM lost my suitcase and did not deliver it until three days later... They refused to compensate me for having delivered the bag with broken articles inside (A pair of Rayban Wayfarers!)"

Cons: "Very nice crew and great food"

Pros: "Crew is excellent, polite and personal!"
Cons: "Plane is super old and outdated. Comfort seat is not, comfortable, very tight. TV screen is not good quality, with the old controls on a handset. No touch, no 1/8 inch audio jack (it has the old 3 holes one). Wifi for streaming freezes every other second. Just make a face lift to the plane, everything else is good."

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

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

Pros: "The socks offered in business were comfortable and nice looking. The red wine was good."
Cons: "The food was just average and the seat not too comfortable"

Cons: "Boarding was crazy. Could not everyone in the gate area."

Cons: "Crew members in Amsterdam were very rude and disrespectful"

Cons: "The plane is so old..,"

Pros: "Yes"
Cons: "Everything was good"

Cons: "I was seated next to the restroom, which is not a pleasant experience for an international flight."

Pros: "Food and service"
Cons: "Working wifi would be good. Better A/C. More comfortable seats"

Cons: "Travelled business class and was ace experience"

Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "KLM lost one piece of my luggage"

Pros: "the trip was excellent and comfortable. LOved the windows that shaded out rather than the having to pull down the plastic blind. entertainment on board top notch screen huge One hostess , Helen was absolutely fantastic and the best I ve had on my many trips. I will recommend KLM whenever I can"
Cons: "the headrest is hard. Apart from that- all was fine"

Pros: "Crew was ok."
Cons: "Screens need a serious upgrade, my seat didn’t recline all the way nor could it be restored to an upright position. Not very comfortable and I paid for a seat upgrade."

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

Pros: "Overall KLM experience is good"
Cons: "Food quality was mediocre for a business class flight."

Pros: "KLM staff is great"

Cons: "old screens and entertainment system leg room to small"

Pros: "The seat was spacious and the concept of the evening meal being the lighter option was innovative and well thought out"
Cons: "Boarding was chaotic and congested with not much information or order."

Pros: "The food rocks! I know that I will always be eating well with KLM. The staff is always so nice, professional and cordial...I always know I'll be in good hands with the flight."

Pros: "Crew was great, very nice"
Cons: "Not enough legroom"

Pros: "Arrived early!"
Cons: "Boarding seemed disorganized."

Pros: "The crew was fantastic! Our needs were constantly being met and just about the time you thought you might want a snack or a meal, the attendants were already heading down the aisle. Because of an allergic reaction, I asked for ice a number of times and the attendants were more than happy to meet my needs."
Cons: "The seats were very close together. The trip from New York to Amsterdam seemed a lot more comfortable than the return flight. The food from NYC JFK was better than the food from Amsterdam. The movie selection on both flights was a little disappointing."

Pros: "She was cheerful and genuine. I have dietary restrictions but was unable to preorder a meal. She went out of her way to find an available meal for me. I also saw her bring other passengers extra snacks and drinks."
Cons: "Cramped seating."

Pros: "Fairly nice flight. 7 hours AMS to JFK. They had ice cream cones for us mid flight and an after dinner cognac if you wished."
Cons: "Not a big fan of paying for a few extra inches of leg room in a better seat after paying for a ticket."

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

Pros: "We are guessing they either overbooked or they didn't have sufficient passengers on a Tuesday afternoon who's final stop was Glasgow. They rebooked him for 1200 the next day. DFW to MN, St Paul to Schipole, Amsterdam to final destination, Glasgow. So he ends up having to pay for another Lyft back to our apartment in Dallas, then another additional one for the 12 noon flight the next morning. If he didn't have family living in Dallas, he would've incurred a hotel fee too."
Cons: "He was bumped to the next day due to his flight being cancelled. Then re-booked the next day, with an additional layover. Then due to a 32 minute layover that left 3 minutes sooner..."

Pros: "Nice flight, nice crew, and a nice experience."

Pros: "Fabulous trip with friendly, helpful staff"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Food was just fine, movie selection very good"
Cons: "Uncomfortable seat cushions, lights were truned on too early (1.5 hours before flight landed)"

Pros: "On both of my flights to New York City, I was amazed at how friendly and helpful the flight attendants were to the passengers. On my short flight from Basel to Amsterdam, a young French speaking girl was concerned about how to manage getting to her next gate. The flight attendants talked to her and arranged for someone to take her there. On my longer flight from Amsterdam to New York City, there was a customer who was in distress about missing a previous flight and not making it to her connecting flight in New York. One of the flight attendants reassured her until she stopped crying and calmed down. That same flight attendant was always so positive and cheerful in all she did. The rest of the crew was top notch. This was my best experience flying in such a long time. Well done, KLM crews of flights 1984 and 0645 on July 10!"

Pros: "Due to lightening bolt strike our pre-Y2K era plane got switched out with a newer plane with modern media delivery at the seats."
Cons: "This caused a two hour delay in boarding and another 30 minutes on the JFK T4 tarmac. Same crappy headphones so it wasn’t the"

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

Pros: "staff was fine"
Cons: "old old plane, very uncomfortable. Tiny bad screen made movies pointless"

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

Cons: "OLD OLD plane with hard seats and tiny screens"

Pros: "Of the multiple international airlines I recently flew with, I would have to say KLM was by far the best. Relaxing atmosphere, comfortable seating, great in-flight entertainment, although I have the go-go in-flight data/entertainment plan with t-mobile (highly recommended), the flight included a decent selection of movies, television programs, etc. The food far exceeded typical "airline quality," even for an international flight - and included a fabulous little snack box with locally sourced gourmet and specialty items such as chocolate from Belgium, fine cheeses from France, and crackers from England. Drinks = gratis, and crew was exceptionally attentive and went out of their way to make flight as pleasant as possible."
Cons: "Nothing."

Pros: "great choice of entertainment content, friendly crew"

Pros: "They were awesome."

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

Pros: "Everything was good. The crew was very friendly and attentive. The plane was comfortable, with great entertainment on the personal screens. The food was delicious. Flight was on time and actually arrived early, but then we had to wait for a gate (not the airline's fault)."
Cons: "No complaints at all."

Pros: "Crew was friendly, and the food was better than the usual KLM fare."
Cons: "The "new" seats were hard and uncomfortable. Avoid any kinds of seats near the bathroom in a configuration with 3 abreast next to the windows. The "aisle" seat is essentially a "waiting area" for the rest room."

Pros: "Fortunately, the plane was not full, so people could spread out a bit to create extra room. The food was really good! (surprisingly)."
Cons: "KLM's new configuration for this type of plane made the seats even narrower than before. While leg room was reasonable, the 3 abreast seating meant a lot of discomfort, especially in the row right in front of the restroom."

Pros: "Excellent service, excellent food."

Pros: "The crew was very pleasant and professional. toilets were very clean adequate overhead space"
Cons: "Very uncomfortable seats in Economy Comfort. Legroom and recline were OK but the seats were extremely narrow. No evening meal and breakfast was minimal"

Pros: "Wonderful"

Pros: "I ended up getting home with less delay than originally predicted. I guess that's a good thing Also delta customer service was super polite and trying to help when I called"
Cons: "Delay again... seems to be pretty frequent on KLM flights at least on the ones I flew with in the past 4 years... this time it was 3hours wait due to a technical issue... no alternative flight option and we ended up getting a very old plane as a replacement. In addition people at info terminals are disorganized and not kind at all.."

Pros: "There wasn’t much to like. One of the crew members stood out by being helpful; his colleagues were bureaucratic and disengaged."
Cons: "This was a BA flight. Food in T3 in toronto was a disgrace, and the whole lounge experience was poor. The sleeping arrangements in business class had no privacy; the food onboard was mediocre. The Air CANADA flight on the same route is far better in every respect."

Pros: "The crew were professional and courteous"
Cons: "Nothing, as it’s a short flight!"

Pros: "One crew member servicing first class was in a mood “not to be here” - it is sad because of first class experience is higher than usual! It was just bad!"
Cons: "I honestly don’t have an answer for this, I guess these kind of crew should not on board especially in first class!"

Pros: "The flight attendants were excellent; seat was about what you would expect in economy; the boarding process was extremely confusing"

Pros: "Everything! I never knew that Finnair was such a great airline."
Cons: "Honestly, nothing could have been better."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Very long delay, got bumped for a flight the next day. Horrible experience"

Cons: "I was not allowed to board the flight and made to wait for 4 hours at the Paris airport. This is extremely disheartening and frustrating to say the least. I would want to rescedhule my upcoming flight to avoid such inconvenience."

Cons: "2 hr delay"

Cons: "Good airline teamed up with crappy American brings them down. Don't waste money!!"

Pros: "Flight was good with no turbulence. Crew was professional and courteous."
Cons: "Problems with monitor, went down a couple of times. Would like a better movie selection. Food used to be better. Even the dessert was not what I used to get before. Felt like the legroom got tighter too."

Pros: "Everything was on time"
Cons: "I couldn’t change my seat"

Cons: "The flight from Helsinki arrived 2 hours late to JFK due to mechanical reasons causing some passengers miss their connectiing flights, which is quite normal in airline practice. What was not normal and supper aggravating was the fact that nobody met us at the gate to help us rebook our missed flights. We had to find an AA agent in the departure area and stand in line with other passengers who were checking in to their flight to Jordan. There was no customer service what so ever provided by Finnair."

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."

Pros: "We where really late and they where very helpfull."

Pros: "Good smooth flight, on time. No complaints"

Pros: "modern aircraft, excellent service , nice crew"

Cons: "I didn't like that seats originally assigned after the flight was booked were changed right before the boarding. This is a nonsense. Why would you do that?! Without notifying prior to check-in."

Pros: "The ease at which the check-in and boarding was done"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "the food given under gluten free food was amazing on FinnAir"

Pros: "The original flight was canceled, the stroller was taken away when boarded the airplane, and not seen until final destination. With a 1-year-old and 2 and a half year old, this was the worst ever flight. Take us 35 hours total travel time to get home with 2 small kids, it is a nightmare."
Cons: "The flight was cancelled and changed to 2 stops from one. We purchased a 1 stop flight because of the kids. In mid season a week before departure, we were notified about the change and it was impossible to get a same priced ticket so close to departure. We bought insurance but even with that was impossible. Looks like a scam. Very upsetting, messed up the whole thing."

Pros: "many choices of films to watch was great too! Like that you served Finnish food!"

Pros: "The food and the crew were excellent."
Cons: "My family's seats were separated by several rows. The airport gate was not manned until several minutes before boarding time. We had to ride a bus to board the plane. There was an extra passport check. The plane had a very old and outdated entertainment system."

Pros: "leg room, service, movie selection"
Cons: "the arm rests don't go up, the food was weird. It's nice that they served two meals but both of my vegetarian option meals were cold and unidentifiable."

Pros: "Great service and hospitality. Smooth flight. Good 1st experience with Finnair :-)"

Cons: "They lost my luggage at some point in the short journey."

Cons: "They left my baggage behind!!"

Pros: "the flight wasn't full and I had the front row"
Cons: "i had the front row on an airplane but there was no first class:("

Cons: "business class was empty and not able to upgrade at an affordable price"

Cons: "LATE DEPARTURE DUE TO PLANE HAD NOT ARRIVED ON TIME"

Cons: "Plane too old for such a long flight"

Pros: "Very nice crew, Economy Premium seats had enough legroom, not a bad choice of movies on the flight"
Cons: "Worst food I ever had on a plane (frequent traveler), I would be afraid to feed it to my dog, let alone eat it myself. Barely ate anything, spent most of my flight very hungry. Refused to eat breakfast at all, it was that bad! Please do something about it, it is outrageous to give people garbage like that."

Pros: "Good movie selection, frequent water refills, boarding was quick and easy with ample overhead stowage"
Cons: "Seat recline was broken, non-adjustable headrest, older flight crew less tolerant of passenger disrespect, not quite enough bathrooms, food had my stomach in knots"

Pros: "This flight was co-shared by British airways. After our horrible flight from San Diego to London, we decided to upgrade our returning flight from London to San Diego to a economy plus premier. This time the plane seems newer and recently refurbished. The seat can recline more, with lump bar support and nice foot/leg rest. It has a bit more legroom. The cabin is nice and new with large view touchscreen TV for each seat. Gluten free meal was good, I'm just glad they finally boarded the plane with my GF meal (after repeated unsuccessful attempts). The service was great, our BA attendants were polite and attentive."

Pros: "I had an empty seat beside me on both legs of my flight. This always makes flying more enjoyable. They fed us two meals both directions. There were pillows and blankets for everyone on your seat when you arrived."

Pros: "Staff as always is polite"
Cons: "The man sitting next to me required two seats. The arm rested had to be lifted to my seat to accommodate him. I complained but the flight was full and my seat could not be changed. I was told that British Air policy was not to require extraordinary over weight people to buy two seats. No, instead the person next to that overweight person has to suffer. A very stupid and unfair policy. As a result I will never book Finnair or British Air again if I can avoid it."

Cons: "Entertainment services weren't functional for the first 2 hours of the flight"

Cons: "I am 6'1" tall. Seats were designed for 5'1" persons."

Pros: "Courteous attendants on board! Food not bad!"
Cons: "Flight was delayed by more than an hour and there was on one announcement unril we boarded! It would have been nice after half an hour to get an update."

Cons: "nobody from justfly and kayak even tried to argued that I didn't missed the flight and I was one of hundreds that was in line way before flight time"

Pros: "I was very pleased with the overall experience on the flight from London to Charlotte. The flight itself was very pleasant, the crew very accommodating, & the food, snacks & beverages very good. The entertainment provided was certainly suitable for my tastes & kept me occupied for the majority of the trip. There was also blackout time provided for sleeping. The seats were a little cramped, but overall I rate my experience as very good."

Pros: "It was a pleasant flight, easy boarding, crew friendly."

Cons: "Smooth flight Arrived early."

Cons: "Our bag was not checked through to our final destination and was delivered a day later."

Pros: "it was fine"

Pros: "The flight left on time, boarding was a breeze, the food was the only good food I've had while flying ever, seating was better than I was expecting, the movie selection was vast and up to date, and we made phenomenal timing in getting to our destination"
Cons: "Checking in online was difficult - it couldn't find my booking. I was panicking three hours before I was scheduled to depart! I was instructed to go check in at the desk by the service rep on the phone, which was straightforward process, but I was half-expecting being told that my booking had been cancelled"

Cons: "Hi -- the flight was fine. A bit of turbulence and rocky but it was raining so it's understandable. The crew was nice, professional. The plan was actually delayed 1.5 hours. They sent a text message at 7:15 apparently but my phone was not on so I understand not receiving it. I also left for the airport around 7:15. I also received an email from Kayak at 7 am that said there was no delay so I didn't check to see if there would be any others. I never received an email from Kayak about the delay. I would just suggest making sure all the alerts I get are correct. I also receieved an email to check in 72 hours before the flight but it wouldn't let me on Finnair.com Maybe I was supposed to go to Open Skies. Thanks! Melodie"

Pros: "Fabulous crew, easy flight with just a few periods of chop - captain kept us well aware of what was happening at all times."
Cons: "Poor entertainment (no individual units on seats), and the 767-300 has almost no leg room in economy."

Pros: "The crew went above and beyond to cater to everyone during this long long flight, they were really sweet, moving people around for more comfort if needed. Hadn't seen such a caring crew in a long time. Thank you to the Miami based crew, they were amazing !"
Cons: "Inflight entertainment....AA NEEDS to get individual screens in economy."

Pros: "The lie flat bed was nice. Lots of good, new movies"
Cons: "The seats are very narrow and you'd either have to climb over someone to go to the bathroom or someone would have to climb over you. And we're talking about complete strangers most of the time. The flight attendants were not very attentive Food was not good at all even for air plane food"

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."
