Cons: Due to flight delay, I had to skip dinner. If could have been nice to supply light meal in case of major delay resulting landing after time when most restaurants closes...
Cons: I did web check in last night. Despite several attempt, I was NOT able to receive email with my boarding pass until I arrive my house in Luxembourg. I was able to board the flight only because I saved pdf file after aforementioned attempt and sent to my email address manually.
Pros: Crew is was good. I did experienced something I have NEVER experienced before. While people were STILL trying to get to their seats the pilot pulled from the gate. I was extremely surprised that such action was done. Everyone should be seated before plane pulls from the gate.
Cons: Before pulling from the gate all passengers should be seated.
Pros: I’m pleasantly surprised that this ancient plane made it across the Atlantic
Cons: Broken entertainment system, no charging ports, broken window screens, broken reading lights, no AC. Plane was too old to be in service
Pros: Seat super small, could not avoid touching other passengers, I am not obese.
Cons: One toilet for 120 economy class passengers, no beverages served complimentary, even a glass of water cost you. Unbelievable cheap, crappy airline now, what a downfall for such a carrier.
Cons: Flight was delayed and missed 2nd flight due to delay
Cons: The plane was SO hot and stuffy. It was an overnight flight, so they passed out blankets—but it was so hot no one used them. The air was stale, to the point of feeling claustrophobic.
Pros: Crew was very nice and helpful.
Pros: Water provided.
Cons: My fly connection did not appear in screens, confusing, stressing. Fly left more than one hour after schedule, no explanation, still arrived on time
Cons: Wider seats,
Cons: First leg was delayed out of Belgrade so I missed the connection to Washington
Cons: Server was mean
Cons: More chicken
Cons: Depart on time
Cons: Flight from Toronto to Ottawa was delayed for more than two hours. We spent two hours sitting on the plane/tarmac. Air Canada sucks.
Pros: Crew, seat
Cons: They couldn't find my name and I have to run around in the airport. I almost missed the flight, even though I was over 2 hours earlier.
Pros: The crew was great!
Cons: I don't like the movie options. Some are quite sexual and can be seen around the plane.
Pros: Very efficient and fuss free. Just what I was looking for from a short haul flight!
Cons: The snacks are super small, which isn’t unexpected when the flight time is so short.
Pros: Will never purchase tickets through kayak ever again
Cons: Food wasn't very good
Pros: I was i business class and the crew were very good
Cons: nothing as it was not a long flight, only 3 hours
Pros: Crew was pleasant.
Cons: Very old plane with seatback screens or USB ports for charging.
Pros: The crew was great!
Pros: I booked the seats with extra room - really glad I did. The food wasn't bad, the entertainment system worked. I definitely prefer the Virgin Atlantic entertainment system, but I fly AA fairly often and will continue to.
Cons: The airport check-in was absolutely terrible. We were in line so long that an employee came up to us and said "I can't believe you're still here." Neither could I. We get to the airport at least three hours early because of stuff like this, but the incredibly slow line and unorganized way of handling it ate any of the time I'd looked so forward spending at Heathrow (I love hitting Boots etc).
Cons: The transfer in Madrid was ridiculous. They could not find a bus to transport passengers and no one had any clue.
Cons: Infotainment system
Cons: One of the best flights is had. Love A340 and the crew and service definitely better than AA or BA by far.
Pros: The flight went as expected. there were no surprises.
Cons: This was in no way a legal connection for an international flight - we had only an hour to get from our flight onto the plane going through customs and everything else - we have Global Entry otherwise there is no way in the world we would have made our flight and ou bags did not make it.
Pros: Nice crew
Cons: economy seats...Space!
Pros: I spent 5 hours on the phone and they didn’t help me. They couldn’t even help me the book so I just lost 700 dollars when trying to change a flight.
Cons: Worst experience in all areas. The phones calls were brutal and no one could help me and then someone could and then they cousltnnagain. No one could find a flight. Took so long for them to look stuff up etc.
Cons: Delays is Boarding No food and beverages
Pros: The crew was OK, the seats had generous leg space.
Cons: The flight could have been on time. not only was the plane late arriving, but then the didn't take off for another hour! have never flown an airline that refuses to take off because of a little rain.... :-(
Pros: Paid for Business , got a minor economy service .
Cons: Almost no advantages for business ticket traveller
Cons: Cancellation with little notice and rebooked on flight two days later.
Cons: The crew should be trained more on customer service
Pros: I landed safely
Cons: The infotainment system didn’t work. Headphones connection is faulty. Everything else was ok.
Cons: I didn’t fly out of Philadelphia because the flight was 5 hrs late and I missed my connecting flight. Had to go get my luggage, go home and try to fly today! Terrible! All my plans screwed up!
Pros: I managed to get on an earlier flight with a standby ticket.
Cons: First, my original flight got delayed to an arrival time that would’ve made me miss the last shuttle to my final destination. My options were either to stay overnight in Vancouver or hire a taxi. Both options would’ve cost me at least $300. Thankfully I had a longer layover in Toronto that gave me some buffer. Otherwise, it would’ve been an additional expense.
Pros: Great service, tons of food
Cons: This VS007 flight is in an old Airbus that needs a major overhaul, especially compared to newer planes in their fleet. The screens are hardly visible, the movie selection more limited, the seats old, and no electrical outlets for a 11hr flight is just not acceptable these days!
Pros: The crew were all excellent
Cons: Dinner choice was poor. Starter was just a few salad leaves.
Pros: Crew was great!
Cons: The scone and roll were blah and dry - and so much bread in one meal!!! My seat charger didn’t work :(
Pros: - Presence of entire box sets of some TV shows was a nice touch that I made good use of.
Cons: - EVERY damn movie is prefaced by 4 minutes of ads. - The touchscreens (at least in economy) are slow resistive screens that are horrible for fine control gestures (like slightly changing the volume or position)
Pros: Staff was top notch in service and kindness
Cons: Noise in the bulkhead kitchen area
Cons: Any sort of hint that my passport expiring within the next three months would be an issue. I was not made aware until I got to London now I am stranded here thanks
Pros: Very nice plane.
Cons: Seats not very comfortable
Pros: The plane was super nice and new.
Cons: Plane took off 2 hours late while we all sat on the plane with no water. They also ran out of food so there was nothing to eat. The crew sounded like they had no idea what was going on, kept giving these updates— and then going back on what they said earlier. So disorganized and hot on that plane.
Pros: Staff, ticket price
Cons: 6kg bags policy
Pros: The pilot kept us undated as to where we were etc
Pros: extra kind crew on board
Cons: stopover on Gran Canaria due to refuel - it cost me extra 30 GBP because of delay in Manchester
Cons: Didn't like having to climb stairs into plane with two hip replacements and luggage, and no assistance. The seats are tiny (and I'm a small person). The food was mediocre, passengers took their own food on board. The entertainment was pitiful for such a long flight. Very disappointed and probably will avoid Thomas Cook for future trips. Plus, It was very cold with constant cold air blowing on me; they provided no blankets, even though I requested one.
Pros: The food and service during the flight was great. Enjoyed the meals and they offered drinks frequently. Complementary wine is also a big plus compared to other airlines.
Cons: The luggage situation. We were very annoyed that we didn’t get a carry on bag and had to pay $92 each for every checked bag. I travel frequently and have never experienced this with another airline.
Pros: Thé crew was nice and helpful.
Cons: I use Air PORTUGAL twice a year. I can’t understand why they took our three trolley to put them in the baggage hold while they have enough space inside the plane. I would like to tell you that food is always awful in TAP AIR PORTUGAL flying from Dakar/Lisboa/Dakar. No respect for the passengers.
Cons: Wait time on buses from-to airplane to terminal was long.
Pros: Crew was superb!! Very attentive and extremely willing to help people when called upon.
Cons: Aircraft entertainment screens were not working at all at a lot of seats. Airbus 330-300 was dated and the cabin amenities were in disrepair. But overall the flight satisfied everything that was needed!
Cons: Flight was so delayed we missed our connection.
Pros: The plane was new and had could technology. The lighting, windows, touch screens and bathrooms were all in good condition.
Cons: The flight took a long time to load. I could not check in online or pick my seats. We checked a stroller when boarding, and when we got off we were told we could not get it until we went through customs. Customs at LAX takes an hour to get through, which left us with a baby and all of our carry-on luggage to transport for an hour. We traveled through many airports on this trip, but never had our stroller not available at the gate.
Pros: it was clean and attentive cabin crew
Cons: the significantly long delays with lack of information. the food options are atrocious and they should ask ahead of time for meal preferences.
Pros: Tablet for entertainment-I liked it
Cons: Dreamliner nice. I sat in the center seat in the center section. I exited to my right because the guy got up for a minute. Needed to get to my luggage on the left. So I crossed the isle in the emergency exit row. The people sitting there had personal items (shoes, etc) in front of them including a red rolling carry on suitcase. Since this is an emergency exit area, why didn't one of the staff tell these people to move the suitcase. The lady was using the suitcase as an ottoman. I told the stewardess and she did nothing about it. Safety violation?
Pros: Everything was great- Flight was clean and Comfortable even at economy class. New Dreamliner 787 Air Craft Friendly Crew Best Flight in a long time
Cons: Food was not great as they tried their minimum on this.
Pros: Just the price, but I ended paying more for my trip that bif I would have selected another airline with "true" business class.
Cons: This is in relation to my original travel date which was a day earlier before the flight I bought through Kayak... Due to cutoms delays entering London from Madrid, I arrived at the ticket station for Norwegian 50 minutes before departure, for thw agent to tell me that it was too late to check-in and that I was to for fit my business class tkt (no credit, no reimbursement) and that I need to buy a new tkt (for next day, they only have one flight to Kax) . I know I could have made it to the plane if I was allowed to check in. There are other major negative things about Norwegian Air. This was tje first and LAST time I will fly Norwegian. I don't recommend anyone to flight this airline unless you like pain and suffering.
Pros: No delay and nice staff
Pros: General flight journey
Cons: Don’t be late
Cons: Not being 1 hour late
Pros: Friendly crew, upgraded seat was worthwhile
Cons: More snacks in between meals,
Pros: The crew WAS amazing!
Cons: Not a thing! It was perfect
Pros: The views on this flight are good. The crew was just ok and they should explain where the restroom is.
Cons: The flight is relatively short so they do not offer a beverage service. However if I fly the same route on Alaska they do.
Cons: Almost 3 hours delayed
Pros: Funny crew members and very friendly captain
Cons: Hour late and no wifi!
Pros: Easy boarding, short flight
Cons: Free water at least would have been nice.
Pros: Crew awesome
Cons: No all was great
Cons: The floor plan on Aer lingus website for seating was did not match the actual plane iwe were on so the legroom was not as good as what the website illustrated when we boarded.
Pros: The crew was pleasant. Plenty of entertainment options to not get bored. Food was great too.
Cons: My seat kept sliding back and forth, on the bottom and I had to keep moving it back into place. It made it quite uncomfortable.
Pros: It was a quick, short flight.
Cons: My bags did not make the connection, which is crazy considering I was in Dublin for about 7 hours. It was not a quick layover, and my bags should have been on the plane with me.
Cons: the only hard part was the boarding in London, very hard to hear the boarding directions. Kind of chaotic. BUT it all worked out
Cons: For the 2nd time, neither me or my husband got our food choice...it has happened everytime we have flown. And we purchased full fare business class seats! I can understand once and maybe for one of us but it has happened EVERY time. MOST IMPORTANTLY, I sadly left my laptop onboard and I called the number for SFO BA Lost and Found for 48 hours....every 20 minutes. NO ONE answered and no one returned my messages. I finally had to drive back to the airport to talk to a human....a 5 hr round trip. No laptop turned in and it didn't turn back up in London. So clearly, cleaning crew stole it. That in its own right is a problem but NO ONE returning my calls. Completely unacceptable. I got the duty manager's email and emailed him TWICE over TWO days before he returned my email. I highly doubt I will fly BA again, I'm afraid.
Pros: It was a long flight but it seemed like the crew was constantly handing out drinks or food and the food was really good. There were plenty of recent movies and TV shoes to watch on the personal video screen.
Pros: Lots of movies, excellent quality.
Cons: Very crowded, otherwise okay.
Pros: Quickly loaded full, huge plane. Excellent demeanor from stewards. Seats very comfortable in econ class. Were as on time as they could be. Superfast deplaning. Couldn't be happier.
Cons: Not a thing
Cons: I don’t have bed for my baby and I asked the server for yogurt she never tell me they have or not
Pros: Flight was on time both ways.
Cons: had to pay for wine- first time in 25 years of flying international and it was very expensive flight, oh well, will skip Condor next time
Cons: More chicken
Pros: There was a good amount of leg room and the seat reclined to a comfortable position to sleep.
Cons: I missed my connecting flight because my flight was late. I had to get to my destination for a wedding.
Pros: No seat comfort
Cons: Just except very bad to reserve 24h before by phone impossible to have the number call call geneve airport it was ile fidji a d south pacifica impossible to understand i speak french andlittle english perfortunatly my kids live princetona d boston Thank.you merci yvette ruggeri
Cons: Wider seats,
Cons: children entertainment
Pros: The app from Swiss air kept me informed and provided Soto checkin and boarding pass. Food was good, crew were friendly and helpful.
Pros: For short flight the seats are ok with space for the legs
Cons: The flight was 30 minutes delayed
Pros: Every thing
Pros: Crew, seat
Cons: Flight was delayed more 1:15 and it is a 35 min flight. If this happens so late in the night is even worse.
Pros: No wifi or any entertainment. Flight delays and lost baggage!
Cons: No wifi or any entertainment. Flight delays and lost baggage!
