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."

Cons: "I paid almost $400 for upgraded seats. When I got to the airport-- no seats-- both ways!! i didn't even have regular seat assignments. I had to choose from the last few seats available. The ticket agent, the gate agent and the cabin crew all did nothing to make up for the fact that their system screwed up and stuck me in a cramped coach seat in the back of the plane for 11 hours-- TWICE! Beyond that, KLM must have one of the oldest fleets in the sky. Both ways LAX->AMS->LAX, I was on a 30-35 year old 747 with no wifi, no power and a ten-year-old entertainment system. Never again."
Pros: "Flight was delayed for three hours and was a very stressful flight"
Cons: "Flight was not on time and got to destination very very late pier management of aircrafts"
Pros: "was very quick"
Pros: "Thankful for coffee being served without charge. Not all airlines do that."

Pros: "Staff at Schipol airport were lovely and very helpful. Cabin crew were friendly and efficient. On board snack was nice."
Cons: "Elbow room is a little bit awkward and I didn't get to sit next to my fiance WE will still definitely recommend KLM though!"
Pros: "The staff were friendly and all smiles. Seats were comfortable and we had a quick, smooth flight from Edinburgh to Amsterdam. The breakfast supplied was an egg and mayonnaise sandwich plus a drink, which seemed about right and very Dutch in character."
Cons: "It was rainy and necessary to walk outside to access the plane; the staff should give their customers a heads-up so that jackets can be donned. Additionally, the check-in queue seemed rather sluggish."
Pros: "Wide selection of entertainment, food was good."
Cons: "Boarding unorganized, but that may have been more of a passenger issue then KLM"
Cons: "Horrible. First, we lost a suitcase. It could happen but for two days they did nothing and only told us stories (so as not to use the word lies). Within a few hours (and thanks to airline assistance) we were able to locate the suitcase. Even then it took them two days to bring it to us, two precious days off our planned vacation (7 days) At the end of the shortened vacation, we got to the chek in, and told that since the ticket I had purchased form them two months earlier was too cheap ... and since the flight was Over booked, they would take me off the plane if all the passengers would arrive. It's unnecessary to describe what I felt until the plane took off. They apologize constantly, but do nothing practical. a bae company. no me nor my freinds/family will go with KLM"
Pros: "Very good flight, excellent service and good food."
Pros: "Spacious cabins, friendly service"
Cons: "Airlines had no record of our pets flying with. Missed our flight even though we were there over 3 hours prior. Ruined the last day of vacation. Now we are waiting for the promised help in Amsterdam. No one is here. No one knows anything. Feel like crying"
Pros: "Smooth boarding. Good food. Decent leg room at my seat. Good crew. Flight was on time. Good magazine on the flight for entertainment."
Cons: "They didn't give any napkins out with the food which was weird."
Pros: "There was no flight! So it's one thing that you have to cancel the flight because of fog; but rebooking us the next day on a flight through New York that doesn't exist, was way below the standard of care I would expect from any airline. Apparently, the NY to LAX flight that KLM booked us on, was only one leg of the flight to Sydney Australia; and according to some airline agreement, only Australian nationals are permitted to take that flight! Running around at JFK from terminal four, to terminal seven, to terminal eight, back to terminal four, to get a flight out, was a bit much considering how tired we were – not to mention hungry, since KLM neglected to provide the kosher meals we had requested with plenty of time – BOTH going to and returning from Europe."
Pros: "Easy boarding, entertainment"
Cons: "Crew was not very friendly on bot departure and return flights. Will make me reconsider Air France in the future."
Cons: "Short and sweet"
Pros: "Crew were very good."
Cons: "No vegan food available."
Pros: "Cops is always a good reason to flight"
Cons: "They always change the gates, also too many disorders in the gate previous the boarding process, the process it is not clean. They took hand baggage aleatory to send to down and do not ask if we have fragile stuffs there."
Cons: "Seats are not comfortable for long haul. Airbus 380 premier economy. Not enough reclining and leg support."
Cons: "This was one of the worst flights I’ve been on. Both planes were downright filthy. The flight from Dallas to Barcelona had several broken toilets. Flight from Paris to Barcelona boarded and once everyone was on board, they told us that we would be sitting there for 2 hours before leaving."
Pros: "The crew was very friendly."
Cons: "No wifi on a 9 hour flight. Takes a long time to get another round of coffee."
Pros: "Fly was delayed.i was told my bag would go to end but it was not.instead of coming to the hotel 7pm i came 1am."

Pros: "Food and wine. Entertainment."
Cons: "Sat closer to water closet. Maybe more air freshener in there."
Cons: "It was a great flight can’t think of anything"
Pros: "The crew was efficient and friendly. The plane took off on time and landed on time."

Cons: "Bus to plane. Long walk to terminal upon arrival. Long Liong customs line?!!??"
Pros: "Fantastic Crew!"
Cons: "Seats are comfortable but tight."
Cons: "The fligh Washington delay more than a hour"

Cons: "I didn't get to board, ended up spending $2,400.00 over and above the $980.00 that I spent booking the initial ticket. I was not informed when I booked the ticket that when you transit through 2 schengen countries, you need a transit document. I was informed about it at then airport. Not only did I miss my flight, I had to book for the next day at a outrageous price. SUPER BAD CUSTOMER SERVICE...BOTH KAYAK and PRICELINE. Will never recommend you guys to anyone."
Pros: "Great service"
Pros: "From the boarding, to the friendly hostesses to the food and the business class seat, I was impressed all the way. My first time to fly Air France business to the US and it was great. I recommend it!"
Cons: "I just expected better toilet bag for business but what was given out was just basic."
Cons: "Flight was delayed by 1h30min, so we arrived very late"
Pros: "Direct flight from Indy to CDG is great. The plane was not so full, so I hope business improves so we can keep it going. Very smooth flight, with good and friendly crew."
Pros: "Comfortable, hospitality and wonderful service"
Pros: "Food was Fantastic, Air France the Best on Air."
Cons: "Crew not only lacked sensibility to understand the purpose of an emotional support dog but kept harassing me about the dog being tied to my seat. At some point a flight attendant even tried to touch my dog, invading my personal space. When the dog rightfully acted defensive trying to protect me, the crew member started threatening me that he would have the dog sent to cargo, the last thing a person with an emotional support pet wants to hear. Extreme lack of professionalism."
Cons: "Couldn't make the connection....Overall....an aweful experience!"
Pros: "Only the cabin crew was good."
Cons: "It was the worst flight that I ever had, the seats are extremely uncomfortable, no TV, the food was terrible."
Pros: "The noise-canceling headset is good."
Cons: "The premium economy seat is not reclined at all. The neighbor's seat is too much flexible. This is a maintenance problem. We report these problems to the crew, though there ignored... I should have chosen an economy class seat."
Pros: "Standard on most parts with pleasant staff"
Cons: "Flight was 1/2hr with poor pre-flight communication on the topic. Food wise, the chocolate cookie was better than nothing...but a little savory snack would have been nice."
Cons: "Booked assistance and got dumped at the gate 3hrs before departure, no English spoken and didn't even ask if my mum needed the bathroom or if we wanted to do some shopping. Just in a rush to get rid of us. Flying only KLM from now."
Pros: "Charmingly nice crew and involving captain"
Cons: "the delay of the flight, the drinks we had to pay in the lounge, some poeple got a 25$ compensation coupon and we didn’t. The connecting time was about 1 hour and the luggage was not put on the plane to beirut"
Pros: "Speed, professionalism"
Pros: "What’s not to like!"
Pros: "Food was excellent and crew was very nice."
Cons: "Could not check in online before my flight and no zones to board just line up and go apparently."
Pros: "Option to upgrade seat which I didn't take but might for outbound red eye flight in future."
Cons: "Faulty toilet meaning longer queues for the loo. Crew were a bit haphazard in serving food and my row was missed out for coffee after dinner."
Pros: "It didn't take longer to board! Crew with great attitude Take off and landing were just great"
Cons: "My sandwich, it contained too much pepper, I mean too muuuuuch My narrow seat No entertainment"
Cons: "I think I caught a stomach bug on one of the 3 legs of this route. More likely on last 2, i.e. Mumbai to RDU, as I fell sick almost 10-12 hrs after my last flight meal."
Cons: "Too crowded"
Pros: "Other crew members were very polite to us, in particular a younger tall woman."
Cons: "2 crew members, one named Terri were quite rude and short with us. I even heard her say she was ready to get off the flight. She also asked everyone around me if they liked their flight but did not ask me. She basically threw my coffee condiments at me and dismissed my concerns about the food. I was unsure if the fruit was expired and she quickly dismissed my question without any real explanation."
Cons: "The company failed to transfer my checked-in bag to the next flight during the transfer apparently"
Pros: "I had a choice of movies, games and music that was very appealing. My concerns about not receiving the correct meal was handled professionally and promptly during the flight. I was surprised they couldn't discover I only ordered it for the second leg of my flight."
Cons: "Being placed into a window seat at 6' 5". Although I opted for general seating rather than paying for a extra leg room which is out of my budget. Not getting an aisle seat was disturbing at my height. Then there was the guy in front of me not willing to forego putting his seat back on my knees for over half the flight. It would be nice if the seat assignments for general boarding considered the height of the person being assigned."
Pros: "The fast boarding."
Cons: "The long wait without the air conditioning until our slot in the takeoff list became available."
Pros: "It was a fine flight"
Cons: "no specific feedback"
Pros: "Boarding was quick and efficient. Flight attendants are always very friendly and attentive on Air France flights."
Cons: "Vegetarian food choices always leave much to be desired."
Pros: "Boarded 45 minutes late, and then sat in the plane for another two hours before take off due to a problem with the lie computer. Would have been better to spend that time in the terminal and given credits to buy food, etc. My seat was a regular seat (non exit) and the seat did not recline properly, the USB drive was broken, overall the plane felt unmaintained. The crew was friendly and food was good but I felt not enough was done to accommodate the extra hours we had to wait on the plane."
Pros: "The attentiveness of the crew and the online check in."
Cons: "Missed the connecting flight and the luggage was on transferred on our next conncection :("
Cons: "Flights are always delayed, boarding is a mess, CDG is awful. Avoid unless nothing else available"
Cons: "Seats could have been more comfortable"
Cons: "I had to pay to check my carry on when there was more than enough space in the cabin. It’s a rip off to be honest. My first experience with European airlines and this was the worst. It was uncomfortable as well"
Cons: "Very bad service. Everything is bad"
Cons: "Was late for 1.5h"
Pros: "Staff is really fine."
Cons: "There was no food and drinks at the flight. Not even the water. Also I dont understand the point of priorirty biarding as 90% of passengers were on that row."
Pros: "We arrive before the planning hour to Pisa"
Cons: "The seats are terrible, nothing confort"
Pros: "There was nothing great about Ryan air. We flew with Flybe on the way back and it was a much better experience"
Cons: "Very disappointed with Ryanair and lack of communication from kayak regarding the checking in process. This was our first time to Europe and we booked a last minute trip to Dublin. We arrived at the airport 3 hours in advance to check in and allow time for navigation. We waited in line for an hour only to know that we were either supposed to check in online or upstairs at the airport. We had 4 minutes to check in when we got to the front desk. Staff was incredibly useless and did not assist whatsoever. We had to logon the airport WiFi and watch the video then missed the checkin by 1 minute. This is absolutely unacceptable. We were then directed to another service department for a 55 pound charge each! Which was the same as our original flight. I did not receive any notification email to check in ahead of time. This was a very stressful time for my traveling partner and I and do not feel obliged to be paying the consequences given the circumstances. I am hoping kayak will honor us as loyal customers and reimburse us for these unforseeabke fees. This would be greatly appreciated. I can provide receipt and documentation if needed. Thanks"
Cons: "Awful experience with Latvian staff during boarding. Luggage passed weight and size inspection from Milan to Riga. It has also passed inspection in Riga, but was checked again during boarding. Staff did not want to work with us and penalized my kid by charging him 53 Euro luggage fee. Disappointed that some staff members have suaded us to never fly Ryanair again"
Pros: "Someone can tell me why should I que in the check in desk just for a stupid stamp?"
Cons: "Bag policy is not clear. We had two guitars so we paid for two bags then i found out there is musical instruments charge which is 50 euro per instrument. It’s a discrimination against musicians. Huge sporting goods fee is cheaper than that. Also there is no phone number to call. I asked about refund at ryan air check in desk and nobody knows what we should do. Ryanair makes it so easy for customers to pay add on fees but they won’t refund you when you pay by mistake. Total non sense."
Pros: "Staff were very friendly and very patient with difficult passengers!"
Cons: "Plane felt cramps, but it was a low price so to be expected."
Pros: "I like nothing about this airline."
Cons: "No check in email reminder is provided. Had to wait in 3 different lines to print boarding pass, check in, and find out if your bag fit airline restrictions. We were charged 68 euro each to print boarding pass. The airports credit card machine was down and we were forced to go to an ATM and pay in cash. The carry on size restrictions are ridiculous. Your bag will be marked as too large (at a 50 additional euro charge) if it sicks out by 1 inch thickness wise, even if it fits into the box provided. Horrible experience and I will never use this airline again."
Cons: "Seat pitch is too short for anyone over 5’8”"
Cons: "The rest especially the quick boarding ( 1h30 to wait )"
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Too many passes with food & drink"
Pros: "Everything was on time"
Pros: "the cost"
Cons: "Boarding was late in 30 min."
Pros: "the flight and the flight crew were quite good and professional."
Cons: "The way we were gathered up like sheep at the departure lounge. There was one person who acted like a mini hitler, scolding people if they dared to cross the line. An unpleasant experience."
Pros: "Staff is young and energetic! Beat crew on trip so fat and we've been on three other planes."
Cons: "Seats are eat too close if you are,tall. The landing was a,3,out of 10."
Cons: "The gate # was never posted on the flight boards so we had to run to the gate when we happened to hear the boarding announcement. We had to pay 60€ at the gate for an "oversized" carry-on, which was standard size on all other flights. Priority boarding was announced then all the gate crew left, leaving everyone else sitting there. The plane and flight were fine (if you ignore the sales pitches for perfume, raffle tickets, etc), but I could have done without the stress leading up to it."
Cons: "I realized I made a mistake it’s my date five minutes after my booking . There was no options all to do any changes"
Pros: "That it took off and landed. That's all."
Cons: "Being made to queue for almost an hour, with staff seeing and allowing people to push in front because they had a child (over 5y.o) with no regard for people who queued. Staff then came from the back to the front of the queue telling people they had to put their carry-on luggage in the hold. When questioned why, the response was "you either do it or we won't let you fly. You don't like it? What do you want? It's Ryanair, deal with it." Very disappointing, flown many times with Ryanair but never been treated like that. Also disgusted with the new policy of having to pay to sit next to your partner of the same booking. Disgusting."
Cons: "Customer service"
Pros: "Everything. Staff was wonderful."
Pros: "Always travel Ryan air when possible just returned from Italy having flown with them so was disappointed when we were just left hanging around with this flight"
Cons: "Not being told what was happening having people waiting at stanstead paying for parking"
Pros: "Nice staff easy flight going to Venice, Italy"
Cons: "Coming from Venice, Italy to Frankfurt Hahn was very rough. Pilot took very sharp turn in the air and felt g forces through my body along with the wife. Landing was very rough and went too fast and had very hard breaking last minute on the runway and when turning into the terminal for drop off."
Pros: "Awesome crews Didn't have food so don't know about it."
Pros: "inexpensive and quick flight so did not mind the tighter space"
Cons: "after all the fuss I heard about the airline, they never checked bag sizes or weights for anyone! the gate agent could not figure out how to login to start the boarding process, prolonging the on-boarding process"
Pros: "That it was cheap, and short. Would've paid slightly higher ticket prices for less sales pitches and maybe tv shows on seats."
Cons: "That every two minutes, we had a session pitch for everything from food to scratch off tickets. Give it a rest!"
Cons: "Ryanair's new random allocation for the seats is a joke. They are trying to make the most money off their passengers. I've flown with them for the past 5+ years and this is the first time I've encountered this nonsense."
Pros: "One crew member was genuinely nice!"
Cons: "Ryanair have found yet another way to squeeze some money out of you - book two or more tickets together and rather than sitting together, they'll ensure you are randomly allocated seats away from each other! Of course for some extra money, you can "enjoy" sitting together. Pathetic."
Cons: "The cost for bags Needing to print our boarding passes before getting to the airport"
Pros: "Staff at Dublin and on board very helpful we were traveling with a two year old and they were great help. Flight good and arrived on time all round good experience"
Pros: "Flight was mostly on time, not bad after a security incident at Marseilles Airport"
Cons: "This was really cattle class. We were herded onto the plane, held in tiny pens, and herded off. But it was cheap."
Pros: "nothing bad attitude , theft by law , non-helping employees , misleading information."
Cons: "i went to airport and astonished that they sent me an email ( during my vacation ) saying that I must check in online ( I didn't took my vacation to read emails especially when the email is sent the same day i will travel ) , i went to pay the check in fees ( which are very high ) , the system refused the master card , Visa card and the employee refused the 500 euro bill , i was compulsory to draw cash from ATM machine , when I came back to counter the employees refused to check me in saying ( you are late now !!!!!!!!!!!) , i was late because of your way of working and misleading customers. as a result i lost more than 1500 euro to get new tickets from Thessaloniki-Athens then Amman and getting a hotel for additional night and taxis ...etc . what made me laugh is that my refund was refused by Ryanair . this is a joke company and I'm thinking in suing them ."
Cons: "A lot of turbulence and late boarding."
Cons: "Was told we would be charged 62 euros per checked bag at the gate because they seemed to big even though a flight to Crete on exact same plane the bags fit easily in the overhead compartment just four days earlier. Then even with priority check in the Santorini airport just let everyone do whatever. Why pay for priority if you are just one big group? Terrible experience this time."
Pros: "Very inexpensive. Nice new plane, courteous crew, comfortable."
Cons: "Charge you for food and they try to plug products. Also bag check is expensive. But honestly I can't complain given the ticket price."
Pros: "Easy to check in online right time boarding and arrival ahead of time. No problems. I wonder why some people call queueing and check-in at airport "normal". If they enjoy it - it is fai to charge them extra."
Cons: "2hr 30 minute delay with no information or vouchers"
Cons: "Late no communication stuck in a queue at airport and no one said a word for over an hour! Will never use again"
Cons: "Packed us in to prepare us for boarding like cattle. The plane landed, unboarded and boarded us so quickly that there was no cleaning between flights. Even the cost savings wasn't that great."
Pros: "Price Ok flight Boarding was fine"
Cons: "Crumbs on seats and wrappers on floor 1:10 minutes late to depart"
Pros: "The flights were on time. Crew were polite and efficient. Pilot was smooth with the controls and kept everyone informed of weather and progress"
Cons: "Boarding had long with lines for check in and the policy of having a check in counter and then a second check in for carry on bags after the passport control and scanners was deceptive at best. I watched several frustrated passengers trying to cram legitimate small bags into the carry-on measuring cage. After failing they were asked for money - these bags were small and reasonable so be aware of the measurements before you fly."
Cons: "Chaotic boarding"
Pros: "Nothing,, missed flight because of 2 minutes I couldn't check one of my bags because was closed and nobody to help me had to purchase another ticket with another airline."
Pros: "Very cheap prices. Everything is extra. Seating is cramped, but for a short flight it's doable. Lots of destinations and at various times."
Cons: "They airport boards did not work so my original flight was missed"
