Cons: Transfering at Heathrow is a stroke-inducing experience. Just getting from one terminal to another takes close to an hour. Add to that sadistic, bossy security personnel, incomprehensible flight announcements (in England!!) and trademark British incompetence -- Brexit can't come soon enough!
Pros: No one could help. Finnair wouldn’t issue a refund. British Airways were not helpful.
Pros: Helpful flight attendants
Cons: 8 hour flight with only one meal and barely a snack Seats were quite tight
Pros: entertainment options were good & staff was nice. Flights were both on time.
Cons: I was very disappointed in the serious lack of legroom on the flight. I would think of a flight was 8 hours there would at least A little leg room. I paid for a seat and the lady next to me kept raising the arm rest and spilling into my seat. I had to lean over into the aisle and was miserable the entire flight. The guy in front of me also reclined his seat all the way and I couldn't get my tray down and it took a lot of effort to get out to use the restroom. I was beyond disappointed with how little leg room there was and I am only 5'6". I completely understand that more seats mean more money for airline, but this isn't even safe in the event of an emergency.
Pros: Professional service, felt safe. Good cost.
Cons: Only fed one full meal on our transatlantic flight, and got one snack otherwise. Took awhile to take our trays which caused a very long line for the bathroom after. On our inter Europe flight, no snacks were included.
Cons: We took off late
Cons: It was very cold inside the airplane. I have to ask multiple times for blanket.
Cons: I am handicap, I travel with a scooter. We let them know months in advance and still they did not plan or assist. My scooter was not brought up in Brussels or DC, I refused to leave the plane in DC until they finally brought it to plane. They sat me in row 38...I can only walk a few feet so the airline failed in every aspect...epuc fail. I will never fly Brussels airlines again.
Cons: Whole flight was so cold like in refrigerator.
Cons: There is no entertainment which is ok. You had to pay for everything in flight. Their carry on luggage size allowance is smaller than any airline I’ve ever flown
Pros: I cannot say enough about how kind, caring and paitent the flight crew was with not only me but others I saw around me. Kudos!!!
Pros: One crew member servicing first class was in a mood “not to be here” - it is sad because of first class experience is higher than usual! It was just bad!
Cons: I honestly don’t have an answer for this, I guess these kind of crew should not on board especially in first class!
Pros: FLIGHT WAS ON TIME VERY FRIENDLY STAFF AT GATE ON BOARD STAFF MOSTLY FRIENDLY NO HASSLE WITH MY CARRY ON LUGGAGE FOOD WAS "OK" ONE WORLD SHOULD BRING BACK THE CHEESE PIZZA SNACK! BATHROOMS CLEAN
Cons: OLD PLANE OLD ENTERTAINMENT SET WITH FUZZY SCREEN NO WIFI ON BOARD STAFF ON RETURN FLIGHT FRIENDLY BESIDES ONE WOMAN WHO WAS VERY RUDE SEATS ARE TOO CLOSE TOGETHER, NEED MORE SPACE FOR LONG FLIGHTS
Cons: experience was awful. Helen Rowena Boysen
Cons: Things were very scratched
Pros: It was empty so we were told we could move around in the empty seats
Cons: Food was basically carbs, carbs and more carbs (especially if vegetarian). Some diversity, please. Staff forgot requests on a couple of occasions (Economy Delight cabin).
Cons: There is no entertainment, not really required on a short flight but nice when offered.
Pros: The business class seats are the best we’ve had. Plenty of room, nicely laid out, good organization design. The blankets were fluffy and very comfortable. Crew was super attentive and friendly. For such a long flight, it was very pleasant, will highly recommend.
Pros: I like the professional approach of the airline and the staff. Seats are really comfortable and i did not need my sleeping pillow at all as the headrest of my seat was already so comfortable.
Cons: There is not much which i did not like about this airline. Just like other airlines, now have started feeling that Economy class travellers are being approached with bit biased approach in hospitality though they have major contribution in meeting flight running expenses. All airlines should start considering this fact and improve the overall approach.
Cons: We were bussed to the plane, there were long dark hairs on my pillow, and they are generous with snacks at close intervals, but the food could be much better. The ideas are cute, but the actual food is pretty basic, which is disappointing for Virgin, who I hold in high regard. Or did.
Pros: Everything was good.
Cons: No major complaints.
Pros: Crew was courteous and professional. Food was okay. Movie selection really good.
Cons: Wider seats and more leg room.
Cons: Horrible food and in adequate amount of it for a flight of over nine hours that crosses the Atlantic Ocean. The seats were so narrow that an elderly man across from me constantly fell as he tried to get out of the aisle. Getting worse and worse. The service is offensive for the cost of these tickets.
Cons: Flight was cancelled. I was rebooked on different flight, arriving in total 6 hours later than planned. My train connection was not valid, and I hhad to buy another ticket.
Pros: Food, crew
Cons: Comfort seats
Cons: The HVAC system was apparently defective and passengers in the mid-section of the plane, myself included, were bundled up in winter jackets and blankets.
Cons: 1.5 hour delay departing put a slight damper on this flight but otherwise it was fine.
Pros: The transfer after the flight was very helpful.
Cons: Entertainment was absent.
Cons: The Norwegian line person who made sure we had advanced security screening, they singled out over 10 passengers for advanced screening causing the plane to wait.
Pros: The flight was punctual and there were no issues taking off or landing.
Cons: Some crew members refused to speak or try to understand French; others did not speak English. This was very confusing for me and I had to interpret for my neighboring passengers. This should not happen on a Paris - Los Angeles flight. In flight movie selection was poor.
Pros: 2 empty seats next to me, can’t beat that.
Cons: Flight was delayed 2hrs because of “technical difficulties.”
Pros: everything but the meals not so good
Cons: the meals not so good
Pros: Yes the crew were, the sits I enjoyed them because there were 4 open rows without any passengers on them so I was able to utilise them.
Cons: On the way to Paris though, couple of your crew members were a little rude I thought.
Pros: great crew and very welcoming for me and my small dog.
Pros: New plane, charging stations
Pros: The crew was great and very friendly.
Cons: Never enough room and the food was okay. But what’s new about this when it comes to air travel?
Pros: Service was great
Cons: If my baggage arrived
Pros: The crew were fine and the boarding was efficient.
Cons: The TVs were really old - my husband’s broke and mine couldn’t actually play movies due to it not registering fingerprints. The pocket in front of me was also ripped open spilling those annoying in flights magazines and the airplane smelled like the lavatory which was 6 rows up... just broken down and not well maintained. It was only a 9.5 hour flight but I expected better from SAS.
Pros: Good selection of movies and music. Food was mediocre.
Cons: Our seat location was near the toilets in the middle of the plane. Seemed like an unusual high number of passengers constantly using the toilets throughout the flight which created long ques in the isle and very unpleasant smells. Would never select these seats again.
Pros: - Great timing for the flight, had a connection and it was stress-free to get through - Nintendo-type controller to play like, two games they had to choose from (clearly an old plane) - Meals were decent
Cons: - The plane was older - it had the ash-trays in the armrests full of dust and god knows what else, gross. - No wifi, I was planning to get some work done because it was an international flight so that was a bust - Limited entertainment selection. Some of the newer ones have more movie/TV selections
Pros: On time
Cons: Charges for everything
Pros: Everything!!! Excellent service
Cons: They check for everything in the counter as if it was a low cost airline. If you go a kilo more over your baggage allowance you have to pay 100 eur. And for your cabin luggage you only have 12 kg that they check you twice and they have security staff at the airport specifically check in this.
Pros: Amazing services .. on time just exactly .. I feel really happy onboard KLM ❤️
Cons: The plane was very hot
Pros: Crew was pleasant but not attentive to detail. Bypassed is completely for snack and drink towards end of 9 hour flight!
Cons: Pay attention to passengers.
Cons: There was no wifi on flight
Pros: The crew was friendly!
Cons: Once again no vegetarian options.
Cons: Too much time spent at boarding. On luggage missing.
Cons: boarding wasn't good.
Pros: Friendly attendants, entertainment variety
Cons: Comfort, food could have been better.
Pros: The Airbus was a real nice ride, with a great entertainment choices.
Cons: The only thing was the two hour delay getting out of Heathrow. But that was for safety reasons, a bag had been loaded that shouldn't have been.
Pros: Customer service in London extremely helpful
Cons: Left our bags in London
Cons: British Airways would not let me board the original flight (even though I would only be in Istanbul to change planes), because I did not have a Turkish Visa. I may have lost my ticket payment as well.
Cons: Log delays
Cons: Older plane with small display for entertainment
Cons: My tv screen could not show the movies
Pros: Excellent service!
Cons: Seats were really old and outdated
Pros: The crew where awesome and catered to every need and requirement.
Cons: need to have a slightly deeper seat pitch in premium economy to allow people out without having to wake each other up. Especially on night flights.
Pros: Crew were wonderful when I was nauseous from turbulence
Pros: The flight, food, drinks and comfort was good
Cons: When I checked in they did not have a record of us prepaying for our checked bag and wanted to see a receipt for our payment. We did not have the receipt with us, we had all the other documentation so the only way to get on the flight was to pay again for the checked bag. I found the receipt later
Pros: The crew were stiff but nice.
Cons: The Club World seats are ancient and dirty with no storage. You are also staring directly at a stranger. Also British Airways makes you pay to select seats in advance even if you buy Business Class, which is a bit much.
Pros: Super friendly and professional crew
Cons: Short comfortable and smooth journey
Pros: The crew was nice, the food decent. I liked the selection of movies and was glad for a blanket and pillow and thought the headphones were a nice touch since most people have Bluetooth and it doesn’t connect to airplane TVs
Cons: I felt this seats could have been more comfortable, & I was very VERY disappointed that I had to check my carryon especially since it was a backpack and was not designed to check. One of my cosmetic products was even damaged because I had to quickly check my bag at the gate, to my final destination.
Pros: Crew were intuitive - how about a little drink / you look as though you’d like another cup of coffee / come and have some chocolate / without me having to ask .
Cons: 27D has got those awful metal boxes under the seat in front .
Cons: The people sitting beside me was very loud and they didn’t stop talking the whole time.
Pros: It was short.
Pros: Very helpful crew, good food.
Cons: Flight was one hour late.
Pros: Friendly and cheerful crew. Very generous with the drinks.
Cons: Very very long walk from aircraft to Schiphol exit. I must have walked for 20 minutes to get out. Not really Lufthansa's fault though.
Pros: Leg room, friendly crew, good choices for entertainment, nice blankets!
Cons: The flight was delayed for an hour, but the transfer in Helsinki was easy, I made it to the connect flight just in time for boarding
Pros: Very enjoyable
Cons: I have no complaints
Pros: Finnair cabin/seats, clean, quiet and comfortable airport in Helsinki
Cons: Not only the first flight got delayed for over 2 hours. I had to re-book the second - connecting - flight because of that. Now it made my layover instead of 1 h 45 m - 5 hours! Then the second flight got delayed!! So instead of 5 hours layover it was over 7 hours!!! Very inconvenient and upsetting experience. The only reason I booked these particular flights is because they were advertized as "the shortest trip" time on your website...
Pros: The flight attendants were excellent; seat was about what you would expect in economy; the boarding process was extremely confusing
Pros: Flight attendants are polite
Pros: Amazing and helpful crew. Great seat.
Pros: The crew were lovely and the seats were ok.
Cons: Not a lot to Improve on to Be fair
Cons: There is no entertainment, not really required on a short flight but nice when offered.
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.
Cons: Good overall
Pros: This new c-series was fantastic, what a nice aircraft!...feels very airy, clean & modern! Wow! Thumbs up! Looking to fly again on this plane.
Pros: Everything aside from the food and cabin atmosphere.
Cons: Food and cabin atmosphere. The cabin felt very stuffy and warm.
Pros: Crew helped my parents with physical disabilities through the whole flight. Super grateful
Pros: Very nice crew. The flight attendant brought me a second dessert after I raved about it (excellent strawberry mousse!) Warm croissants and bread for breakfast! The even came with seconds. Yes! Delicious Easter eggs on both flights. Good selection of movies
Cons: The width of the seats. Tricky to have that elbow rest, it is you or your neighbor!
Pros: Best food I've ever had on an airline! Great flight. Not too full.
Cons: Arm rests didn't lift all the way up on the plane.
Cons: Worst transfer ever from Lisbon flight to Chicago flight. Arrived late, bus from tarmac to terminal 5: 12 min. Up down stairs, security check, up down stairs to take the train, up down stairs to gate. Then take the bus back to tarmac to board the plane. A lot of waiting for bus, then being in the last group everyone shoved in the buss like sardines. In the future I’ll avoid at all cost transfers in London .
Cons: Tight seating. Outdated entertainment technology. Inconvenient food packaging for such tight seating environment. First time flying British Airways; for no particular reason, I expected better.
Pros: Crew was very courteous. Good movie selection.
Cons: Did not get the seat I paid $67 for. The seat had a clump like an old fashioned mattress spring. Lucky I had the pillow! Impossible legroom esp. when the seat in front was lowered. Food was mediocre.
Pros: The entertainment system & the food.
Cons: The seating was a little tight and there was no lunch before arrival...
Pros: Excellent service all around. Would definitely fly Iberia again
Pros: Flight was cancelled.
