Friendly and helpful folks from checkin to deplaning
Was not let to board as the site failed to notify me if a friend purchased the ticket they need to be present at check in. Now we are not able to get a refund and paid for a ticket we will never use. Ridiculous rules as I fly from London and she lives in the US. How can she be present to show her card. $480 down the drain on top of that I had to purchase a ticket at the airport since I was already there

Pros: "Everything! From check-in all the way to the landing of the plane I was really satisfied! There were a couple crew members that really made the flight feel so at-home/friendly that one could not help but just smile and relax in the flight. Awesome job crew on Flight VA69!"
Cons: "I wish my partner and his family were with my parents and I on the flight to enjoy the experience we had as well."

Pros: "The roomie seats, the USB port, and in flight entertainment"
Cons: "Child free section"

Pros: "Boarding process was very efficient and crew was very pleasant and helpful. Seats were reasonable for economy."
Cons: "Meals were very small but tasty. Movie options were random but enough to keep you occupied."
Pros: "My flight was canceled and Virgin Atlantic gave us a free room in the hotel Ramada. My next flight was at 18:55 and I asked Virgin Atlantic agent am I allowed to stay in the room until time for my flight comes, he confirmed yes and gave me breakfast, lunch, and dinner voucher. However, next day around 12 I got call from Front Desk that I have to leave my room right away because it's time to chack out and If I want to stay longer I have to pay. I called Virgin Atlantic agancy again and the agent run my information and said to me I can stayin the room longer. After that I called front desk to confirm that but they said they didn't hear anything from Virgin Atlantic and I have to leave the room by 1pm. All of this was really unpleasant!"
Cons: "I didn't like anything. I didn't like the communication between Virgin Atlantic with travelers, communication between Virgin Atlantic and hotel Ramada. Everything was really poorly."
Pros: "The airplane was quiet My seat did not recline, but was seated in a different place where the seat reclined Bathrooms were clean and plenty"
Cons: "The remote controls for the entertainment system That you can’t reach the vents when you have to be buckled"
Pros: "Nobody are better hosts than the British. Great service, lovely people."
Pros: "The food was great. The flight attendants were very courteous and took excellent care of all passengers"
Cons: "Long flight lol j/k can't help that. It was a great flight, no complaints"
Pros: "Staff. Very couteous.polite. friendly."
Cons: "Good.entertainment choices."
Pros: "We paid extra for exit row seats so we had good leg space"
Cons: "The seats are so small that only your backside fits on it and we are not big people. There is no support for the thigh and I had severe cramps after leaving the aircraft. The flight to LA with Virgin Australia was far more comfortable."
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: "Our ticket was canceled apparently due to an error by the airline. Very unhappy about that. The airline couldn't care less."
Pros: "Quality of service was good in the plane"
Cons: "Not many good recent movies / shows on in flight entertainment. Food was okay. But, the quantity was too little. It took a really long time for a second boarding pass check at London airport. Other airlines don't usually ask for a second check in"
Pros: "I could sleep in peace the entire flight and the food. The little care packages we receive with a sleeping mask and ear plugs are also fun and useful."
Pros: "good plane and timing"
Cons: "meal was not served according to the request and no sound support from the staff"
Pros: "The flight was a good flight overall. I was able to relax on the flight because I had the option of paying for a seat with more leg space. The cabin crew was pleasant and quite helpful"
Cons: "I didn’t like the fact that I had to pay for extra leg space. I’ve travelled with other airlines and had to option to choose my seat without any additional charge"
Cons: "Food was terrible"
Pros: "Met expectations."
Cons: "Things out of your control - time !!"
Pros: "Everything from boarding to disembarking went very smoothly. Flight was on time, seats were comfortable and crew was friendly and accommodating."
Pros: "Not flown with Delta in many years and impressed by the aircraft (A320), crew and customer service"
Cons: "Check-in was a bit of a hassle as kiosk would not accept our details but agent was able to resolve the problem"
Pros: "Food, crew, entertainment great"
Cons: "Seat were very uncomfortable.. hard, not enough leg room and there was no way to sleep comfortably with the head rest that is set up so you can rest your head on it,but its awkward and hard an in the way..."
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: "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."
Cons: "My headphones and those of my neighbors did not work."
Pros: "The flight was on time."
Cons: "The floor at our feet had been spilled on during a previous flight and not cleaned. Bag was lost and not returned for 5 days. Crew during flight was flippant and disinterested in service...unless you were Economy+."
Pros: "Food was good."
Cons: "Leg space was cramped. Parking was very far.food"
Pros: "Great seat. I did the upgrade and it was so comfortable ...good food."
Cons: "They closed the shades immediately when we took off. Creepy"
Pros: "Australian airports are wonderful."
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: "Nothing because I was given a middle seat"
Cons: "6'4 and I get a middle seat.."
Cons: "Seat reclining happens even during meal time and landing! I had to ask crew to get passenger in front to put seat back upright during meal time!!! Crew should've noticed themselves and ask the passenger without my prompting!! So annoyed!! I complained to VA too"
Pros: "Virgin has the nicest staff, good food, and excellent movie options. I had a great time on my flight!"
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."
Cons: "It wasn't clear that we would need to pay to check our luggage, especially since every international flight I have ever been on allows you a checked bag at no cost. When we got to the airport it cost us $130 each to check our bag which we were told it would have been around $50 if we had done it online ahead of time (if we knew). $130 per bag is excessive for checked luggage and we were extremely frustrated and disappointed. I like to fly Virgin when I can due to comfort but that experience left much to be desired."
Pros: "Professional Cabin Crew Excellent "vera" entertainment"
Cons: "Chaotic boarding procedure in Cancun airport, although I accept that this is more of an issue with airport layout Removal of some of the "Virgin Atlantic" benefits such as free sports equipment will make me rethink my carrier of choice from next year. The 747 fleet is starting to feel old - when are the dream liners coming?"
Pros: "The vegetarian meals, leg room and comfortable seats, wifi tv entertainment, kind and courteous service. It made the trip more comfortable! Thanks!"
Cons: "The domestic flight in PNG was cramped, but the flight attendant was very nice and helpful"
Pros: "The comfort of the flight and entertainment."
Cons: "My bag was not put on the correct flight so I had no bag for 3 days, they were slow in getting my bag to Bali from Sydney. It was really unacceptable. I talked to 5 different people to make sure my bag was put on the correct plane, even asked before boarding if it was on and they said yes.The food was horrible, I only ate it because I was starving. Flight was delayed from Sydney to Bali, which caused me to miss my pick up. Not sure if I'll fly with them again."
Pros: "At JFK the lounge and service was the best I have encountered."
Pros: "The veg meal - paneer, rice, lentils - was absolutely delicious. In fact, all of the food was great."
Cons: "Slight problem with the movie viewing - the screen kept going blank every minute or two throughout, and had to be touched to restart. Only on the films, though; the TV episodes were fine."
Pros: "the food was decent"
Cons: "the crew was rude, the bathrooms were not clean"
Document check to verify our negative covid test was efficient. The supervisor at the Frankfurt gate to depart to SFO was not helpful when I asked with group I was boarding with. Dismissive and said it was on my pass. If it was on my pass I wouldn’t have needed to ask. Everything else about the flight was good- on time departure and good crew given circumstances with covid, masking etc.
Pros: "We got to Chicago at least 45 minutes before the expected landing time. The dinner was pretty good and the crew came around many times offering drinks. The ground crew did a good job of evaluating luggage and tagging people’s bags before the overhead bins got too full so it didn’t delay our flight."
Cons: "The snack sandwich was freezing cold..."
Pros: "Crew was great."
Cons: "The layover time was too close for FRA. By the time everyone deplaned and was shuttled to the terminal by a bus it was already my boarding time. I had to rush through the passport control feeling nervous The seat pitch of the flight was narrow. I could not use my laptop once the person in front of me reclined."
Pros: "Flight landed on time"
Cons: "Gate was constantly changed with no audible notification at the gate and boarding process was mayhem"
Pros: "The crew were really friendly and made sure we were looked after."
Cons: "Passenger in next seat was so big that his fst hung over the armrest and he took up 3 to 4 inches of my space. Lufthansa should not let passengers this big fly in economy class. I appreciate my space in economy will be limited but I should be able to use all of my allotted space."
Pros: "Just about brand new Airbus airplane, very nice! Everything worked, seats reasonably comfortable for a long flight. Boarding worked well by area of the plane, friendly crew."
Pros: "The service from the flight attendants was wonderful."
Cons: "The seats are horrible without any lumbar support nor sufficient cushion for the seat. It leaves you sore all over. If the person in front lays back, they will be hitting your knees. The food for dinner was ok but the breakfast was horrible. Plain eggs with inedible spinach and tomatoes."
Cons: "The plane was delayed"
Pros: "Flight crew was excellent. Top notch in customer service. They had a very difficult lady constantly wanting help with meals and food issues, and they were very professional and efficient."
Cons: "Check in was late in Rome. Arrived at 5am for a 8:30 flight, and they would not check us in until 6 am. Don’t understand the “arrive 3 hrs prior” when this happens."
Pros: "The process went just as it should. Everything was on time, orderly, pleasant and successful. I was able to get to my transfer on time, feeling good and ready for the next leg of the journey."
Pros: "Lots of legroom"
Cons: "As with most long-distance flights, the bathrooms got somewhat dirty though I did notice flight attendants on two occasions entering to clean them"
Pros: "All good - Lufthansa even handled an unexpected air traffic delay well, meaning my connection still worked. Great price too - booked at short notice and Lufthansa business was half the price of BA. Far better device too."
Cons: "No negatives."
Pros: "Great entertainment choices"
Cons: "Boarding by rows or areas would be better than the masses all at once after 1st class and business."
Pros: "I flew premium economy from Hong Kong to Frankfurt on the A340-600. The crew was excellent, attentive and friendly. They always have a great attitude and this has been consistent with my previous experiences with Lufthansa. The seat and meal were average for premium economy, but the crew more than made up for it."
Cons: "The seats were quite hard and lacking in padding in premium economy. The meal was average and nothing to bring home to."
Pros: "The flight was full. service, food and entreatment was excellent"
Pros: "Having a very difficult time thinking of something I like about the whole service. Maybe the checking in process was a little bit smoother at San Diego compared to other airports."
Cons: "As many of you know, Frankfurt/San Diego is a new service offered by Lufthansa. It touts direct flights to and from Europe. It’s main advertising draw was connection to the east. Many of their connecting flights at Frankfurt are scheduled within an hour of arrival. This possess a high risk of missing your connecting flight. I experienced this personally as a major number of my fellow travelers missed their connecting flights. Though Frankfurt has good directions, transfers take a long time due to multiple security checks and due to the size of the Airport. LAYOVER OF AT LEAST TWO HOURS WOULD BE BEST. Anything less, you risk missing your flight. I was personally selected TWICE for ‘random check’ for the same flight! Not sure how that can happen! The flight itself is long and arduous. the economy seats are small, cramped and don’t recline much at all. The entertainment selection was very limited. The TV touch screen barely worked. The food was tasteless and service was not much better. I have a hard time sleeping on flights with such bad seats but we had air hostess who kept talking the whole flight and that did not help with resting my eyes. I highly suggest taking a different airline through LAX. I personally feel like driving to LA and taking a flight there would be the wise move."
Pros: "Everything was great. The crew couldn’t have been more friendly or accommodating. It was a very enjoyable experience."
Pros: "Great flight crew, inflight entertainment and food"
Cons: "Damaged bag...working with airline to get replacement"
Pros: "The service was excellent. On time and very efficient crew."
Cons: "Everything was great"
Pros: "How all drinks, food, snacks & headsets are included and the staff so respectful and kind."
Cons: "The guy behind me coughing all over me. Not exactly your issue though."
Cons: "This particular flight was delayed beyond reaching the next sep,so we have to rebook our flight threw Chicago in uncomfortable hurry."
Pros: "I can say with confidence; there was nothing that was good. Wait, the bathrooms were nice."
Cons: "The food was horrible, the staff was rude, my flight was delayed 4 and a half hours, the plane was so hot I felt like I was going to pass out, the seats are way too small and too close to each other."
Pros: "Food was good. Flight was on time, everything went smoothly"
Cons: "Taking connecting flight is an ordeal. Flights leaving from Frankfurt to Pune had to be through an escalator and by bus to climbing airplane stairs. Very tedious and tiring. Also the seats in economy class in Private Air plane recline too much. It was hard to get out of seat if the front seat is recliner."
Cons: "They Changed the terminal last minute and i miss the flight ! horrible experience i needed to pay new tickets 300$ ! i will never going to book or recommend to anyone to fly with your company.."
Pros: "Crew !!!"
Cons: "Very long distance to gate Z 69 with no time to cost my knee pain !!!"
Cons: "Headphones not working properly in the whole economy class! Only one of the headphones was working... WOW, Lufthansa, never seen anything like this! Second serving of food was the worst I have been served on an airplane - a stale pizza. On a number of occasions I asked the hostess for a piece of bread and a glass of wine - she promised to be back and never was."
Cons: "Walk between connecting flights in Munich was very long (25 minutes) and when we got to the gate for the flight to EWR, there was a very long, and very slow-moving line with only one attendant checking boarding passes for 6 gates. We arrived at the gate and were among the last passengers to board. A last minute additional attendant that was brought on, helped to make the line move a bit faster, but this under-staffed checkpoint added unnecessary stress to our long travel day."
Pros: "Great service across the board! Wonderful, experienced staff!"
Cons: "Seat space was inadequate. My shoulders are 4 inches wider than the seat space including both shared arm rests."
Pros: "The polite stewards The food and drinks given for free."
Pros: "Great food! Attentive staff, comfy seats."
Pros: "The food, comfort, and entertainment"
Cons: "I did not go because i canceled my flight and am still waiting for my refund since 23 May. I will probably never use Kayak again. Not happy... far from satisfied. ~AC"
Pros: "The most professional and helpful crew"
Pros: "The female flight attendants always look great."
Pros: "I flew round-trip in Business Class from Munich to Kiev and then back to Germany via Frankfort and both flights were on time. The dedicated business class check-in line and advance boarding process was smooth - as were both flights. The cabin crew on both flights were very good and all spoke English well. My chief complaint is with the European Business Class seating model (3 across with center seat empty) - which does not afford much more leg room or seat pitch than in economy class. On the plus side you don't have to get in a fist-fight with anyone over the overhead bin storage problem since there are less people in business class and hence more storage space."
Cons: "The "European business class model" is not that great when you are paying a premium price to ride in Business Class. I think the prior 2 x 2 arrangement on each side with larger (and more comfortable) seats...plus more legroom and seat pitch...is preferable."
Pros: "Apart from the turbulence everything was perfect. Flight attendants were very hospitable. Love the aircraft design. Great movie choices for the kids. In addition to that we all reach our destination safely. That's all that matters."
Pros: "On time. Smooth flight. Crew was extremely nice and helpful. Food was better than expected for airplane food."
Cons: "My particular seat had an entertainment system that only had about half the movies of the other seats. I notified the attendant who told me that this is a known issue that affects a number of seats on the plane."
Cons: "I had to scramble on the last day to ensure I have an alternate flight via British Airways"
Cons: "The company denied any responsibility for the passenger and for the full fill the trip"
Pros: "crew was nice and that we arrived safe"
Cons: "super crowded flight with many crying children food was bad and not enough"
Pros: "We requested a special meal to accommodate multiple food allergies, and they both promised and provided it."
Cons: "As there was a long wait, the gate change did not come quickly for notification."
Cons: "Leg space is tight"
Pros: "Entertainment center was nice ."
Cons: "Didn't get the seat I booked / didn't get the food I ordered 2 weeks in advance ."
Pros: "Due to business I travel allot so I deal with allot of airlines. This is by far the best airlines I have used. Excellent crew and airport staff. I don’t think words can express how satisfied I am with this airlines and airport. The nicest people and great service. Clean and modern aircraft. Going to try flying only with KLM from now on."
Cons: "It's KLM. What else do you need to know."
Pros: "The crew was professional & friendly"
Cons: "Food was terrible honestly, entertainment system didn't work on 1st flight."
Pros: "Klm's consistantly high standards in everything they do."
Pros: "Crew were excellent"
Cons: "Old aircraft. Uncomfortable seats in economy. Entertainment screens old and almost impossible to watch - watched my iPhone! No mobile phone charger."
Cons: "When its rain we shouldn’t walk to the air plain"
Pros: "KLM are our airline of choice. A great full-service carrier with impecable standards."
Pros: "Pleasant crew. Appropriate and efficiently served snack."
Cons: "Boarding and disembarkation were slow."
Pros: "Great crew."
Cons: "Ran out of business class meal. Substituted a Econ class."
Pros: "Everything works and quick to get to destination."
Pros: "The crew was informative"
Cons: "Inflight sandwiches"
Pros: "KLM STAFF WERE VERY PROFESSIONAL"

Pros: "very nice crew"
Cons: "my baggage was lost"
Cons: "The KLM crew are always great serving and treating you. Well above many other airlines."
Pros: "Crew was nice and pleasant"
Cons: "Flight very late"
Pros: "Entertainment was amazing"
Cons: "Seats a bit hard"
Pros: "Good for both."
Cons: "Bigger seats."
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 was very nice"
Cons: "Uncomfortable seat but it’s only a 1 hour flight so not a big deal."
Cons: "The flight was cancelled and had to be rerouted on United Airlines."
Cons: "No reading light in my seat..."
Pros: "Crew was in a festive mood, the meal was unexpectedly delicious"
Cons: "Seats ok, but could be more comfy"
Cons: "I have ordered Wheelchair for my parents which one of my parent didn't get it on Mumbai Airport. When they arrived on Amsterdam Netherlands Airport they were dropped to the gate assigned first and once the gate changed on the fly no body came to help them moving to the new gate assigned which was far away to walk. Nobody even came to tell them that the gate has been changed. It was because of my father's alertness they didn't miss the connecting flight and when my father asked help to members on airport none of them helped my parents and other 4 co passengers which also were on wheel chairs. It was so scary experience for them that they asked me not to book any more flights with Jet Airways. I won't recommend Jet Airways to any of my friends for their parents to travel to USA. I strongly recommend you guys to take a strict action against this. This is so unacceptable."
Pros: "Nothing to mention"
Cons: "Crew was rude when I asked if there was a vegetarian option for the snack. I did request special meals for the trip. Even if they did not have a vegetarian option, they don't need to be rude!! Boarding was ridiculous. we were supposed to form a line and wait. Would have been a lot better if they boarded by seat numbers. Also they made me check in my fairly small and light carry on bag resulting in its contents arriving broken!"
Pros: "The crew was really friendly."
Cons: "There was a Force Majeur delay in Helsinki due to wings freezing that caused 20 minute delay to Amsterdam and made the interchange stressful."
Cons: "Having to change my seat to accommodate a rude belligerent passenger, who had taken my seat, refused to move until spoken to by steward. She then made my flight a nightmare, until I let her sit in my aisle seat. Even then she was not satisfied, she abused me the whole flight damaged the screen so I could not use it until the steward fixed it. Demanded that I except any and all alcohol to give to her to drink. When I am tea total she then continued to abuse me. I asked the steward to move me he just shrugged his shoulders and said there was nowhere else. This is definitely my the worst flight I have experienced."
Pros: "Employees were very friendly"
Cons: "The seats were very small"
Pros: "Seat 39A did not recline. The gentleman next to me spread his arms out a bit as he typed on his computer the entire way. So I did not get ANY sleep. Plus he got up at least four times."
Cons: "Except for the man next to me - great!"
Pros: "Everything was clean and well organized."
Cons: "The flight was delayed 1 1/2 hours."
Pros: "Everything is top notch for an airline company."
Cons: "Nothing.... I enjoyed every moment of the flight."
Cons: "infotainment was down. Lost my luggage the flight was delayed"
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: "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."
Pros: "Ground staff at Manchester very helpful"
Cons: "Information on KLM website and flight status said 50 minutes delay and was never updated with the true status. 3 hours before we took off. KLM blamed the fog at Manchester but to be honest most other flights seemed unaffected. Put up in an IBIS hotel and fed substandard food and shitty hotel room with an Aircon unit that clunks into action every 30 seconds keeping me awake. It's external so I can't switch it off. Being given a 10 Euro voucher for food at the airport when most food and a drink will cost you 12 to 15 euros."
Cons: "Two hours delay in the start."
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."
Pros: "The crew service is impeccable. Ground services very friendly and professional."
Cons: "The seats are very uncomfortable. The individual screens are simply outdated like you basically will damage your eyes looking at them. No chargers for phones."
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: "Only one queue for boarding. Flight late on arrival."
Pros: "Flight crew on flight from Amsterdam to Cape Town were probably the most friendly and enthusiastic I've experienced and no, they were not all young. The plane was spotless throughout the flight. They were always coming around with water and juice and they genuinely seemed to care about all the passengers. The Flight back crew were just the opposite. More like the old lazy farts you get on the American carriers or BA or QF long haul. Whoo have been there for the long haul and should have stopped ages ago."
Cons: "The Entertainment images on the screens promoted Beauty and the Beast, Batman Lego movie but neither were on the system! Food quality was rubbish"
Cons: "Did not get the luggage from connecting flight from Amsterdan to Basel"
Pros: "Food and drink service"
Cons: "Boarding pass facility"
Pros: "Nice, turbulent-free flight. Food was good, service with a smile. Leg space was OK because Boeing 777s are usually better at this."
Cons: "Flight left over an hour late because of a sensor glitch. It is concerning when a technical glitch happens. But, the flight was smooth."
Pros: "Excellent service"
Cons: "Having to pay extra to pick a seat prior to check-in. I didn't, and got a decent seat anyway."
Pros: "Newer plane. Dimming windows, upgraded bathroom. Flight crew very pleasant."
Cons: "Boarding wasn't announced. Limited in flight movie selection. Food was average. Same dessert for both meals served."
Pros: "Service of the staff was great"
Cons: "Turbulence, with all our technology we still cannot avoid this?"
Cons: "The flight was very delayed. We sat on the floor because there was not enough seating. We eventually had to squeeze into buses and drive around the tarmac to find a plane. We lost 5 bags in the process but eventually got them 2 days after arrival. the bags did not show up when we originally were told they would."
Kayak was terrible, I was told that I got 1 free checked bag, but when I got to the check-in counter I was told otherwise and had to pay for my checked bag!!!!
As I said, very nice and pleasant flight, neatly perfect. I will consider Finnair for sure again when I travel to Europe next time.
Pros: "Crew was ok, But seats so tight, Economy size seats fitted in Business Class and so much wastage of space around seat, very little quantity and quality of food available.The flights to Delhi and Amritsar has more than 60 % Punjab Travelers and there is not even a single movie in Punjabi movie. Poor."
Cons: "Economy size seats fitted in Business Class and so much wastage of space around seat, very little quantity and quality of food available.The flights to Delhi and Amritsar has more than 60 % Punjab Travelers and there is not even a single movie in Punjabi, Please learn from Qatar Airways."
Pros: "My bag was lost!"
Cons: "To have my bag delivered"
Pros: "This is a great way to travel from Helsinki to Tampere and avoid the railway and train changing."
Cons: "The plane is not comfortable, but the flight is very short. It balances out."
Pros: "Service good. Staff good"
Cons: "Very cold at night"
Pros: "Food and entertainment is good"
Cons: "They had hidden checked bag fees. Their website says flights from the US get a free checked bag. The checkout charged me $60 to check a bag, when I looked on my reservation it says it’s $55 and when I called customer service they said they charge $100 to check 1 bag less than 20kg for an international flight"
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "All was well. Long bus ride to the planr"
Pros: "Everything was on time"

Pros: "Fast connection in Helsinki!"
Cons: "Delay in JFK, old aircrafts and mulfunctioned entertainment equipment."
Pros: "Crew, entertainment and food service was excellent"
Cons: "Seats too crowded for 8 hour flight. As soon as the person in front leans back you have no room it is unbelievably uncomfortable to have a seat back in your face for that long!"
Pros: "Most Improved Player - Finnair has done the best experience in overall long haul flights out of the 40plus airlines I have flown in the last 3 years; brand new planes, nice and diverse cabin crew, beautiful lightings videos details chocolates etc, best entertainment system in the industry, and things always go smooth in Helsinki airport. Awesome imrpovement over recent years."
Cons: "Big struggle for airlines still remains varying quality customer service. Finnair still seems to struggle with this occasionally. Finnair can work harder to keep customer service quality high. Hate to say it, but perhaps letting the bitter, last generation flight attendants who seem to have a grudge about the decline of the glamour and benefits of the job as flying has become commonplace with more competition (seen this on Finnair & N America’s older airlines line United)"
Pros: "excellent service, loads of attention, good gluten free food choices with a finnish twist"
Pros: "Everything was well organized and on time. Good meals! Price was fabulous!"
Cons: "Seats in economy were small and my husband and I are not small. Usually international flights are roomier."
Pros: "the food was decent, the people were nice"
Cons: "the baggage check was a zoo. there was only one finnair representative, who was LATE. the baggage check was opened only 1.5 hours before the flight, causing a massive line."
Pros: "It was interesting that the flight from Helsinki to Chicago served a Indian style dinner comprising of lentils, rice and chickpeas. I liked that too, though I prefer the meditarranean fare. My kids liked the macaroni and meat dinner. The plane was clean and comfortable"
Cons: "The flight attendants could have been a bit more cordial and smiling. The dessert was only a choclate. Would have liked something better. Entertainment needed more variety. Boarding was a bit of a mess as they did not let families board first and were not very accomodative of families with small children, though I had a 9 year old, but there was a family with two very small children and they were not very helpful to them."
Pros: "Crew attitude, food, bluberry juice, punctuality"
Cons: "Babies under 1yr need bassinet by regulation, pls implement. Tough to hold kid for 8 hrs, even with baby bjorn - can injure baby's neck!"
Cons: "Completely destroyed our itenerary"
Pros: "many choices of films to watch was great too! Like that you served Finnish food!"
Pros: "Being on time, crew was helpful, entertainment nice. The 30 min layover between JFK-HEL and HEL-SVO was perfectly organized, the gates were next to each other."
Pros: "see above"
Cons: "see above"
Cons: "Delayed over 3 hours no explanation only technical problems. No food/water offered to people waiting a considerable length of time!"
Cons: "I have traveled all over the world and never had an issue with luggage but finnair lost my bags and have little information on how to help other than a $70 credit which doesn't cover anything."
Pros: "Great crew and service"
Cons: "Uncomfortable seats. Not only no space to get comfortable but the seats themselves are not comfortable. We had better constructed seats on the hopper from Edinburgh to London. It is unconscionable that long flights are so uncomfortable!"
Cons: "I don't understand when a reason for flight delay is no aircraft. Wasn't it a scheduled flight? The €8 voucher is only enough to buy one glass of juice."
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Food was terrible. Entertainment system kept breaking."
Pros: "The staff were thoughtful and kind. They checked on us and offered snacks and water very regularly. My favorite, though, was that the captain took the time to alert us to the sights out the window. We had closed the shades at the request of the attendants and would have missed the beauty of Greenland had he not alerted us to peak out. I appreciate that!"
Pros: "There was plenty of room and the food was good."
Cons: "Can't think of anything I didn't like"
Pros: "Schedule is on time."
Cons: "Food was not much excting and seat distance was rather short, making uncomfortable."
Pros: "The flight was spacious, on time and everything went smoothly."
Pros: "Food was provided when the flight was delayed for 2 1/2 hours. I also really liked the text update from kayak about the delay. The airline did not keep me updated but kayak did."
Cons: "The delay when it was already a 6 hour flight. I also was not able to reserve a seat because I had booked through kayak and not with the airline. Finally of the most irritating of all annoyance was that there was no movie. This was an international flight and there was no entertainment. I will never fly American Airlines again."
Pros: "Not much to enjoy"
Cons: "The service. 3 hour late flight, had to rebook my connection out of my own pocket. After we got on the plane, we find out the issues were not fixed and had to wait another hour. Terrible food. Yogurt was actually expired, so I had no breakfast. People were all nice as they told me I should have booked the flights together. Hmmm... Maybe you should not have been 4 hours late. I planned my trip with more than enough time to make connection... Called about my travel insurance and found out it kicked in after 6 hour delay. Customer service should never make you feel like the issue is your fault."
Pros: "the crew were very friendly, well organized. movie selection was great. meals were surprisingly good and plentyful"
Cons: "not enough leg room. and i have to point out that I am a petite 110 lbs, 5'2" woman. as soon as the person in front of me reclined their seat to either sleep or lounge, I had my food tray on my chest and the small tv screen 8 inches away from my nose. Thankfully Im small but the man sitting next to me was rather tall and had to turn into a human pretzel to fit in that seat and space allotted."
Cons: "I paid for an upgraded seat and after boarding other passengers were being moved to the same area that I had paid for an upgraded seat FOR FREE!"
Pros: "The Movies"
Cons: "The stewardess could have been nicer. Very rushed, they were polite but just rushed! Also the lack of CLEAR English speaking crew!!!"
Pros: "Usually a 7 hours flight is a torture for me, but with their outstanding service I didn't notice how time flew by.The flight attendants were providing us with all necessary information about next connections."
Pros: "It was relatively inexpensive. I didn't mind the food/"
Cons: "This flight was operated by BA. Seats were incredibly uncomfortable. When the guy in front of me reclined his head was practically in my lap. TV's were crappy and the in-flight selection was mediocre. In flights announcements were very loud through headphones."
Pros: "The inflight movie selection."
Cons: "The uncomfortable chair."
Pros: "I thought the cabin crew were very helpful and friendly and professional."
Cons: "The seeds were too close together N20. You almost couldn't eat your food or all the laptop because you're so crowded."
Pros: "Once we got on the flight it was all good!"
Cons: "We had the worst experience getting to our flight this airport is so badly managed it is laughable."
Pros: "Nice one"
Cons: "Nice one"
Pros: "easy - no surprises"
Pros: "Flight operated by BA; food was excellent, wine was free, crew were friendly."
Cons: "Legroom so cramped its dangerous; worse than on my CRJ connecting flight."
Cons: "Finnair "outsourced" the flight to a Portuguese HiFly. Boarding: flight delayed for more than 1 hour, with passengers sitting all this time in the plane and waiting for all connection flights to arrive. As a result we arrived late for our connection flight. The Finnair people that met the passengers on exit form the plain did not provide any information how we should proceed next. We were left to figure it out by ourselves. Crew: The impression was that all the flight attendants from HiFly were untrained. The did not know what to do an how to do. They seemed lost on the plane. Comfort: Plane seemed to be re-purchased from some Arab airline. Food: bad Entertainment: v system was broken. Information system was showing wrong current time."

Cons: "Two hour delay including 20 minutes to get flight data because on board computer not functioning. Usual knee in chest seats on commuter jet."
Cons: "The wifi didn't work. No seatback everyone's screens, only a screen over there middle row of seats. Maybe update your 20 year old livery."
Pros: "On time, kind crew"
Cons: "Bigger seats"
Cons: "Thank reserved seats at time of purchase for a British airways plane and paid for extra legroom. When I checked in, I was routed to American Airlines and the seats were the same in the entire aircraft except for first class. Why did I pay and shouldn’t I get a refund?"
Pros: "Trip was wonderful."
Cons: "My son and I had seats in different places and they asked him to move forward several rows because of weight and the seat beside him was empty so I asked if I could sit next to him and they said no without giving any explanation. That kind of upset me. Just a short explanation would be fine."
Pros: "The flight attendants were able to find a place for my carry-on luggage when the overhead bins were filling up. I got a seat with extra leg room by chance (without having to pay the extra fees)."
Cons: "There are no snacks served on the flight. The Philadelphia Airport was overcrowded. There was hardly any room to navigate and there was a long line at nearly every women's bathroom."
Pros: "Quick boarding, smooth on time flight. Easy access to DC from Reagan airport"
Cons: "1. Crew on the PHI leg was not very friendly. 2. No entertainment on the PHI leg, but I did get to know my two neighbours which I wouldn't have if there had been entertainment. 3. Of course, the seats in economy were poor. My feet became very swollen."
Pros: "I liked boarding first and the additional leg room that I purchased"
Cons: "My TSA Pre was not on my boarding pass even though I have had a KTN since this past May!!"
Pros: "The whole experience was stress free and comfortable."
Cons: "We booked our airline tickets at the same time and our seats were separate. This was the first time flying for my wife so she was very upset when we found out our seats were not together. We had to pay an extra $60 to have the seats moved to an exit seat."
Pros: "Having more room for our seats to get comfortable and that we had a dinner that was served. Was not expecting that"

Cons: "Sitting on the tarmac and no individual screens on one flight."

Pros: "Crew was professional, flight was smooth."
Cons: "Plane was old. NO in-seat power, no USB chargers, no in-seat entertainment. TV monitors in the aisles? Is this the 1990s? One crappy movie? The "headsets" are a joke. Too many announcements - and I don't like it when they play movie trailers, commercials, etc. over the sound system. The food was horrific. I wish American Airlines would charge $20 more per ticket and provide some reasonable food. Everything just screamed LOW QUALITY. Lucky I had brought a sandwich and some snacks with me on board. The food was so bad that I didn't even touch it. They should just eliminate the food completely and tell people to bring their own on board."
Cons: "Delays when other airlines with same destination did not have them. The constant asking if is move seats. No means no."
Pros: "They delayed 5 times and we're never honest about departure time. Then lost my luggage. They told me that I will need to go back.to the airport to pick up the luggage which is unacceptable."
Cons: "See above"
Pros: "The American Airways gate agent was very helpful fixing the problem that British Airways created. She went out of her way to get me booked on AA flights to catch my BA flight from London to Riyadh."
Cons: "My original flight was cancelled and the first available flight was 3 days later. BA booked me on the flight but failed to change my ticket from the original flight causing me to miss the flight from Kansas City. At the airport BA agent told me on the phone that I would have to wait 3 more days after I had already waited 3 days because BA canceled my original flight. Because of the flight cancelation I missed two days of work and because of the failure to ticket my following flight I almost missed a full week of work. The BA booking person seemed content that there was no way I could make it to Saudi prior to the end of the week. Fortunately, the AA agent was able to find a way for me to continue my trip on a later flight."
Pros: "Seats were mildly more comfortable than DELTA seats."
Cons: "Passengers with small children weren't offered to board early like with every other airline I've traveled with... Delta, spirit, united, etc. So I ended up being humiliated because we held up the line trying to get situated with the baby."

Pros: "On time. Friendly."
Pros: "The estimated time for both my flight was over an hr, but we arrived in on my first flight at 45mins and my second flight 30mins."
Cons: "- The entertainment system was not working - needed few restarts - on many seats - Food - horrible - Air hostess dropped water on me - not a problem by itself as accidents do happen. However her comment was more annoying - no sorries - not apologies - just said - "oh it's just water - it is refreshing" - Seats pushback was almost broken - it would break your thumb to push the button and then almost stand to push the seat back. - This was transatlantic flight and you charge for liquor? It is not free - you have to purchase - They ran out of red wine (which was free) by the end of the first meal. Do you keep just one bottle for this big 777 fight. - Overall experience was horrible."
Pros: "Our flight had a veteran who had received the Medal of Honor and the pilot and attendants took a moment to recognize him and it was sooo special and meaningful for American Airlines to take the time to thank this awesome individual!!! Thank you!!"

Pros: "It was on time, crew was very polite and attentive."
Cons: "Nothing to report."
Pros: "I like how they kept us updated on when the flight would leave"
