Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews

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: "Food and snacks!!!!!"
Cons: "Missed connection to SFO"
Pros: "Great movie selection"

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: "Entertainment Meal service and quality"
Pros: "Crew very friendly"
Cons: "Seats and legroom poor if you’re six feet tall"
Pros: "Complimentary newspaper Food service"
Cons: "Overhead reading light"
Pros: "Friendly cabin crew, excellent food and drinks. Very happy with the service we received"
Pros: "Free everything...food, wine, spirits, movies, etc. Nice crew!"
Cons: "Seats a little hard, main dinner dish was a little odd but okay."
Pros: "Checking in at the counter even I wasn't allocated a seat but the gentleman was very humble and polite."
Cons: "The fact that I was told I would be given a seat at the boarding gate. I got to the airport very early to get a good seat only to be that and was given a very uncomfortable seat where I couldn't stretch my legs well because of a box on the floor situated to my left leg and to make the matter even more annoying my screen was not working which I was forced to take one heavy meant-so-called laptop. And finally cabin crew were lacking serious customer service and when u ask for something they were just so reluctant to deliver as if we were given a free ticket or something. May it be noted that my ticket was not that cheap to be treated in such manner."
Pros: "Cool flight, mainly because it was empty. Good food"
Cons: "Seats weren't that comfortable. Entertainment sucked because the screen functions were terrible, very difficult"
Cons: "Too much food - not enough time to sleep in comfort!"
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."
Cons: "Food was terrible"
Pros: "We really enjoyed flying with Virgin and so made sure we booked into a Virgin flight for this trip and not delta. The food was good, entertainment good when it worked."
Cons: "We got told that our flight number had changed from VS103 to VS4049 but still a Virgin flight. Only when we checked in we found out we were now flying with Delta and number was now DL285. Was not happy as wanted to fly with Virgin.The seats were ok but the entertainment system went down mid film. Took an hour to get started again. The games didn't work. Staff were a bit grumpy."
Cons: "We were told over the phone that we could bring our kayaks with us to Africa but the airport staff denied not only our kayaks, but also our paddles which were in a standard ski bag. Their excuse was that both the kayaks and paddle bags were 2 inches too long. .. TWO INCHES!!!!!! We had record of the person we talked to and the time and date, but none of that seemed to matter. It caused A HUGE INCONVENIENCE for us since we are in Zambia for 6 weeks without our gear to paddle one of the most challenging rivers in the world... the Zambezi. Now we are constantly trying to acquire the proper equipment with very little success. We run a nonprofit called the Montana Kayak Academy which provides free whitewater instruction to youth between 8 &18 yrs old and we will be sure to tell everyone we know to NOT TRAVEL WITH EITHER VIRGIN ATLANTIC OR BRITISH AIRWAYS.... EVER!!! VERY DISAPPOINTED! !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"
Pros: "Cabin crew were friendly and attentive. Flight was on time and we got to Atlanta early"
Cons: "Could do with more legroom. Food not the greatest"
Pros: "I had a great experience from start to end of my trip. Most of the staff were pleasant and professional. Food wasn't okay and red wine on flight from Heathrow was delicious."
Cons: "The red wine on the flight from Lagos was too sharp. That is the regular one served on virgin flight so was glad when I tasted the new one served on the flight from Heathrow, thinking it's been changed!"
Pros: "the crew were the friendliest I've flown with (Irish & British)... the lighting was very relaxing and the continuous snack service was much appreciated (especially ice cream).. gonna try premium economy next time as the seats looked even better..."
Cons: "Vera the entertainment screen was very good but there were no newly released movies, everything seemed to be a couple of months old... the leather headrest was comfortable but kept slipping down to behind my neck, would be nice if it was lockable in position.."
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+."
Cons: "My headphones and those of my neighbors did not work."
Pros: "We were inmiddle seats -not our preference. We were told in Dublin that we had different seats to the ones we ended up in. Food was excellent, crew were very nice. Loved the "make a wish" event on this flight - a definite plus for Virgin."
Pros: "1st class, what's not to like?"
Pros: "Food was great, plenty of it also"

Cons: "The seat I had was a bit snug leg wise and recline wise. Could not get comfortable at all."
Cons: "I did not get the requested meal. I had requested Asian Veg meal. I had reconfirmed that Virgin Atlantic Kiosk at Heathrow airport as well. In flight when I asked cabin crew they said they didn't get any request. I was hungry whole flight. Very bad experience."
Cons: "cabin was nice but cold"
Pros: "The plane was very nice with great lighting. More food would have been nice as it was a long flight The crew were variable - most very helpful but one or two not so much"
Cons: "Not enough food for everyone and no snacks between meals, which was very bad considering it was a 10 hour flight Entertainment was great, seats were OK (certainly had worse)"
Pros: "As expected, great customer service from Virgin. Great Vera system. Friendly and welcoming experience."
Cons: "The seats!!!! Omg I got bed sores. Not really but they have got to be the most uncomfortable things I have ever sat in. For a European flight from Uk they'd be fine. But for 9 hours...not good. The short hop down from ATL to MCO after was a blessed relief. Virgin, you have got to think a little more about your passengers asses. Also, having flown with just about every major transatlantic operator, including previous trips with Virgin, the knee room was not good. If you stretched out under the seat in front you were ok but draw your knees up... I wore short trousers for comfort and have sore points on my knees where they rubbed against the material of the chair in front."
Cons: "Cold draft at all times."
Pros: "Flight was on time .. Friendly crew. Good entertainment system"
Cons: "Seats uncomfortable and leg room very tight . Didn't sleep well."

Cons: "Flight from Heathrow to Frankfurt delayed, when we arrived we had no chance of making our connecting flight to Split yet no one told us. No one at the gate which didn’t say final call (or on any of the boards) or anyone calling us over the tannoy at any point. Super rude “flight manager” A. Turini burst out laughing when we told him our situation and when I asked why he said “Well would it make you happier if I cry instead?” So unprofessional."
Pros: "The ground staff in Heathrow was helpful. They happily swapped me onto an earlier flight to Munich after I spotted delays out of Munich, allowing me ample time to connect in Munich airport"
Cons: "Lufthansa's narrowbodies have one of the most uncomfortable seats in the sky. These slimline seats are built with a central beam running vertically along the midline of the seat, making it very uncomfortable with your spine."

Cons: "The flight was late."
Pros: "Easy check-in and helpful staff. I would absolutely fly with Lufthansa again"
Cons: "The plane lands a considerable distance from the airport, you walk across the tarmac in the rain to a bus, and then the bus ride is almost 15 minutes. I expect Lufthansa to have a better berth at Frankfurt."

Cons: "There was very confusing and contradictory information on what you can take with you on top of your cabin luggage. e.g. Can you or can you not take a small shoulder bag with you."
Pros: "Nie odbyl size powodu opuznienia samolotu z Chicago do Londynu"

Cons: "Lack of food for long haul flight. Had to pay to eat. 43 dollars and only able to pay with debit/credit card rather than cash"
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Charging customers for meals on a transatlantic flight is a terrible way to nickel and dime your customers for the most basic provisions. Not all travellers carry accepted credit cards, including the woman sitting beside me. Because it is so common (formally standardized) for airlines to provide food on longer flights, many travellers assume their WestJet flight will the same and arrive unprepared. I normally love WestJet for their customer service, but these flight attendants talked down to customers with legitimate questions. I am choosing another airline for my next international flight, although reluctantly so - I hope to see some changes from WestJet for a more comfortable flight."
Pros: "I didn't!"
Cons: "Late, late, late! I was a prisoner in my seat."
Pros: "Sensible ticket price"

Pros: "Boarding etc was organized and efficient."
Cons: "Did not find the crew helpful or friendly."
Pros: "For a long flight, WestJet is the way to go! Many flights were involved in our vacation. WestJet stands out above and beyond all the rest. And what a relief, since we took WestJet for our in August flight to and from Europe. Simply no comparison in all the various aspects of a flying experience."
Cons: "The seats are comfortable, for a tall person, the legroom is Apple, climate controls are good, the service is fantastic, everything about it! These people know what they’re doing The seats are comfortable, for a tall person, the legroom is Apple, climate controls are good, the service is fantastic, everything about it! These people know what they’re doing!"
Pros: "Enough space for long legs."
Cons: "Need more variety in snacks on the longer trips."
Cons: "Haven’t yet reached our destination, it’s our honeymoon and would have hoped to have got ther by now instead of which we are having to layover in Vancouver until the next flight because of delays on first Leg of journey we missed connecting flight"
Pros: "The crew. Very friendly and helpful"
Cons: "The food. Pizza was bad."
Pros: "I would give the crew 10 stars if I could! This was by far one of the best flights I’ve ever been on. I’m not a fan of having to pay/rent an iPad for entertainment, and it was a bit cold for my taste(I also had to pay for a tiny blanket). However, other than those two very minor things, it was a wonderful flight. I have never flown with a better crew, you could really tell they all actually enjoy their jobs. I loved that the pilot had a great sense of humor, he told a few funny jokes after we landed(while we were taxiing) it definitely helped make the time pass faster & I honestly think it put everyone in a good mood :) I have never been more satisfied with a flight. I will most definitely recommend WestJet to everyone I know, and will be my first choice for flying myself."
Cons: "I didn’t like that I had to pay/rent an iPad for entertainment. I was disappointed that I had to pay for a blanket & that the blanket was so small. In flight WiFi was kind for expensive and didn’t work very well, it kept disconnecting and the only thing that really worked was iMessage. Having said that, overall it was a great flight! :)"
Pros: "The flight attendants were wonderful. The macaroni and cheese was tasty."
Cons: "The plane is so old that you can only use the entertainment system on your phone, which gets tiring to hold up in front of you. Even though I was on a 10 hour flight, meals were not provided."
Pros: "Inexpensive average airline"
Cons: "Pay for everything from food to bags, still better than Ryan air"
Pros: "Despite an ontime boarding, weather (thunderstorms) and air traffic congestion left us stuck on the tarmac for over 3 hours. Kudos to the captain for keeping us informed of every development and for taking the initiative to negotiate a southern flight plan routing that allowed us eventually to depart when other flights were being cancelled due to congestion in Heathrow airspace to the north. West Jet also put together a special team in Toronto to rebook passengers with connecting flights to later flights. This meant they had a new boarding pass ready and waiting for me by the time I got to Toronto, so the disruption was minimized."
Cons: "I had counted on buying my meal on the plane, so had not purchased any beforehand. Unfortunately, we ended up delayed on the tarmac for over 3 hours and they ran out of hot meals before they reached my seat row. I had to make do with crackers, cheese and fruit as my dinner. Lesson learned: always reserve my meal (or buy one) before boarding my flight - you never know what kind of delays will occur. To be fair, the crew did offer me a free glass of wine to go with it, which was a nice touch."
Cons: "Unable to hear updates from the crew. Sounded garbled"
Pros: "Crew was very pleasant"
Cons: "As it was a budget flight, all food had to be purchased and the cost was high for the quality received"
Pros: "I liked the fact that boarding was a good experience"
Cons: "The fact that the plane was supposed to land at 3.35pm and we actually landed at 4:40 and for some reason we waited to get off the plane with no apology from anyone. The service was not satisfactory and they broke our stroller."
Pros: "Crew, as usual, were the best thing about this trip"
Cons: "Chairs are not that comfortable"
Pros: "Seats. Great crew members"
Cons: "Having to pay for everything"
Pros: "The basics were all up to standard, the flight was very full and because it's such a long flight it is expected to have a few discomforts from time to time..."
Cons: "TURN DOWN THE VOLUME on the announcements, it was so loud I could feel the book I was holding in my hands literally vibrating. I had to plug my ears to tolerate the blasts over the PA. I requested the volume be turned down repeatedly but it was never changed... from London to Calgary. More frequent offers for food/beverage would be appreciated, there were only two rounds made for the entire flight of almost 9hrs. It's just nice to have a bit more flexibility..."
Pros: "Very fast today"
Cons: "Man these flights are boring"
Pros: "Piot gave clear and timely announcements as flight was delayed do to weather,. In-flight crew were friendly and providing a relaxing environment. The include meal was very good."
Cons: "Plane is showing its age. Bathroom was in terrible condition."
Pros: "The economy class seats were surprisingly comfortable."
Cons: "It's a personal taste thing, but I don't like flights where it is necessary to separately purchase all the normal things that other airlines provide on international flights (blankets, wine, food, etc). I'm sure others appreciate that level of economy, however."
Pros: "Re-booked on Westjet after my WOW airlines was cancelled. Didn't know what to expect - pleasantly surprised, Great service from top to bottom leaving Gatwick Airport. Will make them my top preference in searching future flights out that way."
Cons: "Nothing - the entire experience (check-in, flight, deplaning) exceeded my expectations."
Pros: "Plane was clean"
Cons: "Waitjet did not perform preventative maintenance and had to change a tire at Gatwick delaying flight by 2 hours with terrible/late/inaccurate information about when flight would resume = FAIL Result was overnite in Toronto. Lets see how the 6:45 (3446) goes ?"
Cons: "It wasnt possible to connect to entertainment system or wifi even though I had paid for wifi"
Pros: "Cancelled the flight and was utter chaos with no direction what so ever."
Cons: "Staff would not communicate with the passenger's."
Pros: "The price"
Cons: "Delays, poorly managed. Ridiculous solutions. A flight that last about 7:30 hours. Turned 36 hours. Bad experience."
Pros: "It was a smaller aircraft and the staff were friendly"
Cons: "was right at the back of the plane and could not hear the announcements clearly."
Cons: "ONE WAY TICKET Vancouver TO Tel Aviv was about $560 c.d -all- included. Went well 3 flights well. Ticket back from Tell Aviv took 4 flights , around $900cd . had to pick-up the suitcase each airport.., and pay for the suit case separately.."
Pros: "Friendly staff."
Cons: "Delays. Canadian debit card not accepted on flights even though an American debit card was."
Pros: "I will never travel with west jet again"
Cons: "Everything Staff was so rude"
Pros: "Exact on time."
Cons: "Refreshment should have more choices"
Pros: "Glad I could rent a tablet"
Cons: "Flight was delayed"
Cons: "That the fare advertised didn’t include a seat or a suitcase. Very unfair comparison."
Cons: "I don’t understand how Westjet can get away with 1. Not providing food on a flight of this length, 2. Charging for the entertainment system which has basically no content"
Pros: "Decent selection of movies."
Cons: "No meal included in 7hrs oversea trip. They had 3 services - two snacks and one coffee only.othereise, food was for purchase only. No checked luggage included."
Pros: "No Comments."
Cons: "The Female Stewardesses either conveniently did not see me sitting in the middle row seats, or perhaps had other alternative means. I felt totally and absolutely ignored, particularly when Meals and Beverages were being served."
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "Terrible food options. Sandwiches and croissants vastly overpriced: $8 for a croissant ($1) with a slice of cheese (25cents) and ham (50 cents) is ridiculous. Flight delayed on the ground for 1 1/2 hours."
Pros: "More leg space than I was used to and pretty spacious bathrooms (I'm 6'5")"
Cons: "The purchased Wi-Fi went down immediately and didn't come back up until 8 hours into the 10 hour flight."
Cons: "Poor management and customer service."
Pros: "Great crew"
Cons: "Entertainment system was playing up"
Pros: "The crew and their attitude"
Cons: "The planes are worn out with the result that they often have mechanical problems. When the new promised planes arrive this will be a great service. The saving grace of the current service really is the personnel, unlike US carriers if they can help they will."
Cons: "The toilets were very dirty"
Pros: "The crew were nice"
Cons: "The gate in LGW was one of the farthest in the aiport. The flight ia 8.5 hours and the ticket is not cheap. But you have to pay for everything. Even onvboard entertainment. The only free thing is the soft drinks and that is even rationed. I flew with worst airline and for long flight they at least give a free meal."
Pros: "The return flight was acceptable. seats were comfortable. Would recommend on spending the extra $$ on get extra legroom seats."
Cons: "Flying out on December 24, the airline kept us at the airport for 6 (including 2 hours on the plane) hours before cancelling the flight because they could not get water pressure to the washrooms. We were supposed to leave for London (LHR) at 8:35pm and were notified of the cancellation at approx 2am on December 25. The only other flight that would be available would be on December 25 at the same time the 24th flight was supposed to leave. The service desk was not taking any requests for finding or re-booking flights, we were supposed to call their support number at 7am on the following day. We were offered cab fare accommodation from and back to the airport. They offered hotel stay which I passed on. They provided $60 of airport food that could only be used at certain restaurants, not compatible to purchase chips or drinks (non-alcoholic) from other stores. The coupons as compared to Air Canada, which are valid for a year were only valid for 24 hours. In the end the only "monetary" compensation I got from WestJet was 250 westjet dollars that expire in 12 months."
Pros: "My flight going to London was a train wreck...missed connecting flight, awful service and charged extra for a backpack that was called ”oddly shaped.” However, the return flight was the exact opposite, amazing service, free check-in because of my experience earlier and upgraded seating. I appreciate that they corrected what had gone wrong. Nicely done!"
Pros: "The seat was very uncomfortable. I think it’s time for them to be reupholstered or something."
Cons: "Some food - peanuts or crackers and cheese - just something for those who didn’t know nothing would be served."
Cons: "More room under seat in front of me"
Pros: "Friendly crew. Good on blankets and pillows. Clean Airplane. Good leg room."
Cons: "7 hour flights should have a small meal. We didn't even great pretzels or peanuts and only one beverage service the entire time. Iceland Airs airport logistics also near great improvement."
Pros: "THIS AIRLINE IS RIDICULOUS. CANCELLED ON US AS SOON AS WE LANDED IN FRAMCE. DIDNT ENJOY IUR VACAY BECAUSE OF IT."
Cons: "Two flights at the same time to same locations through unlabeled gates (up some stairs and through two doors before checking boarding passes) confused about 30 people. this was not optimal. Putting the boarding pass check earlier would remove the confusion."
Pros: "You have to put up with a lot but it’s a cheap way to get to Europe."
Cons: "As has happened to us before our extra leg roo. Seats (that we paid extra money for) disappeared when we checked in and we’re replaced with separate seats in the back of the plane. Boarding is long and very disorganized. It took over an hour to get our bags."
Cons: "Icelandair has decided to make tickets cheap and baggage charges outrageous. My fault for not reading more carefully but I will not fly this airline again."
Pros: "Always nice to travel with this airline and I will be in the air with them again"
Cons: "Icelandair attitude suck and is the reason I will not even visit Iceland now."
Pros: "Lots of films and tv shows to choose from, polite staff, timely flughts and a nice place to spend a layover."
Cons: "Huge lines for everything,got delayed by 1 hour....."
Pros: "Just enough room to be comfortable and the seats reclined enough so you could sleep. But I watched three good movies instead."
Cons: "I would have looked led a free cookie."
Pros: "Price was good"
Cons: "Made me pay for checked bag"
Cons: "Refreshment cam 3 hours after departure Wait lines everywhere because the plane was not ready when they opened the gate"
Pros: "The entertainment selection was good (movies) and the staff was friendly, however on the 8 hour flight, my headphone jack to watch movies did not work."
Cons: "The connector for my headphones did not work on the 8 hour flight, every other airline will provide, at a minimum, a complimentary snack where as on this flight you needed to pay for everything, seat assignments were changed (booked with a group of 6 and we were all sitting with each other when we booked it but when we got to the gate everyone was scattered. In fact, I heard a man say he was on his honeymoon and that they changed his wife's seat so they were unable to sit together."
Cons: "No free meal or alcohol. Small seats."
Pros: "The wanderlust salad is fantastic!"
Cons: "we were delayed 7 hours due to technical hour. 3 of these hours were spent on the tarmac."

Pros: "Everything good,"
Cons: "No English on the notice"
Pros: "arrived in good time"
Cons: "gate change at last minute, long wait for bus to aircraft."
Pros: "Going to Copenhagen via Iceland felt like going there through the back door. I liked it. Rather go that way than through a London connection. The Iceland airport was very busy, had trouble finding the correct gate for departure to Copenhagen. I wasn't expecting to depart the plane on arrival in Iceland and be put on a bus to be taken to the airport complex. Was also put on a bus from the airport to the plane for departure to Copenhagen. I would in the future fly with Iceland air again. I was treated well by the airline personnel, and I was happy to give that country my business. Shirley"
Cons: "Very short layover, getting on plane was hectic."
Cons: "Reykjavik airport seriously under sized for peak times. No waiting areas of any size. Overcrowded restaurants, limited and overpriced stores."
Pros: "Riding in economy, the only good thing about Icelandair is the crew, beverage selection, and an okay entertainment system."
Cons: "Paid wifi is slow for work use (ex: bad for VPN) but ok for personal use. There is no free meal service compared to other carriers. The seat space does feel a bit cramped, but not the worst."
Pros: "Super easy and the cost was amazing!"
Pros: "Smooth ride, good customer service"
Pros: "All of the employees are highly professional and very kind. IcelandAir is my new favorite company for flying!"
Cons: "Everything was great!"
Cons: "No room for our carry on, because other passengers were allowed to bring on over-sized bags and multiples. No order to boarding, just first come first served. 2 out of 3 USB ports in our row were broken."
Pros: "In flight entertainment was good"
Cons: "A warm meal would be nice."
Pros: "- We arrived safely. - Crew was cordial, polite and professional. - Company allows delaying flight delay up to a week free of charge, to enable tourism in Iceland (we did not take advantage this time)."
Cons: "- Reykjavik airport boarding is a mess (as always). No waiting area with seating near gates. People are standing in hallways like cattle. - Plane was louder than usual, even though we were seated near front, 2 rows behind first class. - insufficient legroom for taller people. - company charges extra for exit row seats. - no complimentary food, except for children under 12, for a transatlantic flight. - some trash (plastic bottles) left under seats from previous flight. - human waste smell from septic tank in cabin toward end of flight."
Cons: "Had to paid for chips"
Pros: "cheap airfare"
Cons: "slowwww boarding"
Cons: "always delays!! super slow boarding on the plane"
Cons: "Attitude of employees, totally cold and unhelpful. Is this your culture?"
Pros: "the flight attendants were awesome"
Cons: "Would have loved a more reclining seat for such a long trip."
Pros: "the plane seemed safe"
Cons: "no seats in the airport; long wait for boarding and totally confusing/interfering messages on airport PA system; chaotic boarding "process""
Pros: "The air personel were really professional, nice and accomodating except for the flashing light of the duty free cart at 2am in the middle of a dark sleepy plane."
Cons: "Where to start? I'm traveling with my wife and we decided to consolidate our stuff in one luggage since she is pregnant and I don't want her to carry any bag... We are allowed for 2 luggages of 23kg each combined it's 46kg, our bag was 30 kg. Through my previous trips with various airlines we had no pb with that until we reached the check in counter, the lady very politely explained that she has to charge me 35£ back and forth for excessive wait on the bag which I found outrageous so i had to squeeze a bunch of stuff in the hand luggage to send it as a cargo Then she infomed us that the plane is gonna be late for 1h while eventually it was delayed more than 2 h On the plane the staff was very friendly however the variety of food is so limited and the hostess passed by in the middle of flight with the duty free cart decorated as a Christmas tree while the lights were off and everyone was sleeping Finall we reach the airport, the bags took 45 minutes to reach us I love Iceland but i will not book with the same airline again"
Pros: "The whole flight was a very pleasant surprise, I would recommend Icelandair to anybody looking to fly from the USA to Europe"
Pros: "Window seat, clear sky, only a few bumps. Loved looking down as we crossed over Greenland."
Cons: "They should at least give some snake"
Pros: "Love iceland air for seat comfort and entertainment options, despite late boarding we still arrived on time."
Cons: "There was no communication in Reykjavik to our boarding area, they boarded 20 minutes late with no communication or update on the intercom. Then they just opened boarding with no communication, very strange. IcelandAir still operates in the dark ages with seating assignments, I was unable to select seats for my flight ahead of time because tickets were purchased through another ticket vendor other than the airline itself. I also don't like how all food has to be purchased even though it is a 7+ hour flight."
Cons: "Because of mechanical problems from the start of our trip ,our whole vacation was a nightmare ,we missed all our connections to Paris.The seating space on the plane is horrible .No food on the long trip .Food to be purchased was aweful On the return flight the boarding had to be done manually due to computer failure , therefore we took off late .Never again will I fly with Icelandair."
