Amazing KLM service and brilliant economy comfort seats. Well worth the extra.

Amazing KLM service and brilliant economy comfort seats. Well worth the extra.

Pros: "Crew was great, on time flight, clean plane."
Cons: "Entertainments options were shockingly few. Honestly have not been on a plane recently with so few and limited options of TV series and movies. I was extremely surprised. Wish I had know and I would’ve had more options for my family."
Cons: "The only complaint I had was that it was very warm on the flight (and I usually get cold on flights), and in the seats we had there weren't fans above the seats. A few rows up they had fans, so apparently you have to pay extra for air... This wouldn't be a big deal on a short domestic flight, but for an international flight it was a long time to be uncomfortable!"
Pros: "Very friendly and responsive crew. Announcements from the Capitan and chief of flight attendants are very informative and comforting. Seat positions: very good leg room (even in economy)!"
Cons: "Newer airplane, as 747s are kind of outdated now, especially for long distance flights. But overall had good experience with KLM"
Pros: "I was sorted on Row 3 and the drapes kept hitting the back of my head."
Cons: "Move the drapes a few more inches back."
Cons: "Seats in economy section are very close together . There is not enough room for knees...especially for such a long trip."
Pros: "Great crew, comfortable seating with enough leg room."
Cons: "Provide dinner before getting to joburg, instead of a snack. Flight arrives late so dinner would be appreciated"
Pros: "Reasonable space in economy class seats"
Cons: "Staff hurrying us up 40 minutes before departing and threatening to take our bags out of the plane in case we didn’t board then. I had to leave my coffee and run."
Pros: "The crew is really welcoming"
Cons: "The seats are too narrow and a bit too hard"
Pros: "Crew was ok."
Cons: "Screens need a serious upgrade, my seat didn’t recline all the way nor could it be restored to an upright position. Not very comfortable and I paid for a seat upgrade."

LHR is always kind of a challenge. British Airlines did a fine job. My tickets were the cheapest so I can’t complain.

Flight was missed and now we have to catch one the next day

Cons: "Quite narrow seats and seat pitch in economy, but the price was right. Poor quality seatback screens but a good selection of films and tv"
Pros: "Speedy boarding process, good meal choices."
Cons: "Plane was a little dirty. Entertainment was also a little limited in terms of new releases."
Cons: "The transfer was too complicated, long distance to walk, security check line, not enough time for transfer, had to run to catch the next flight"
Pros: "I got an extra blanket."
Cons: "We waited on the runaway for 3 hours without any service, not a sip of water. When I finally arrived in Helsinki, I missed my connection to Riga and was rescheduled for a flight 6 hours later even though there were two flights leaving before then. Also I requested vegetarian meal online, but was not served vegetarian. They did not have any extras."
Pros: "Nice crew."
Cons: "Check in was extremely slow and we almost missed our flight. No explanation given and didn’t make sense because there wasn’t a long line. Then one piece of luggage did not make it onto our flight."
Pros: "New A350 seating positions The attentive and respectful staff The good food and drinks choices The on time arrivals record, no matter what delay they seem to have good efficiency built in"
Cons: "The boarding in Singapore- Finnair are seemingly punished by being gated at the furthest end of the walkway. The security is slow due to the two single lines of screening, even though we are all in transit or have already been through checks elsewhere"
Cons: "Did not like stress of having to check in 24 hours ahead of time just to get a free seat assignment. Why should we have to purchase a seat on a plane we already bought a ticket for?"
Cons: "Same as above. Seats very narrow. But enough leg room"
Cons: "Boarding was a disaster as my companion was selected for random search which held us up as there was no urgency to process us. Then there was no sign for where we should go since upper deck on 747 so we went in "economy" line as indicated on ticket and then was sent to correct line when we got to the front, wasting more time. The seatrs were the most uncomfortable I have ever beeon on for a long flight. I also paid extra to be in the exit row, to have people constantly congregating in front of us."
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."
Pros: "The crew"
Cons: "The time. The flight was late for 1 hour. I miss everything and also I get very late to our Airbnb and I was with my family and child"
Pros: "Perfectly on time, no hassle, seat OK. This is the way I appreciate a flight."
Cons: "Food. No choice, three "madeleine" (sweet) cookies for all, no sugar-free (salty) alternative..."
Cons: "Seats are not comfortable for long haul. Airbus 380 premier economy. Not enough reclining and leg support."
Cons: "We didn’t travel to Detroit... we were re-routed 3 times and our luggage is lost, some really helpful ppl along the way (thankfully) and some really crummy ppl too... no in between... still not to our destination"
Pros: "The schedule and timing"
Cons: "The airport, some of the crew, the aircraft seats, the entertainment system"
Pros: "Crew was very friendly and seat in KQ is super comfortable in Business."
Pros: "The comfort of the flight snd kindness of the crew."
Cons: "My connecting flight to san francisco was through Delta, which it was on a different terminal, I had to carry my luggage out of the airport in order to get to delta’s terminal - the buildings are not connected."
Cons: "There was no entertainment and the food could be better"

We were delayed in Charlotte for almost 2 hours because American Airlines didn't have flight attendants for our flight.

Cons: "Cool AC, it was hot! AC barely working or set too low."
Pros: "Like the multiple USB charging outlets and the mobile device holder on the backrest"
Cons: "Horrible experience with American Airlines staff while boarding at Birmingham AL USA. Very unprofessional & RUDE..."
Pros: "efficient boarding process, friendly crew"
Cons: "boarding time was delayed, too hot, seat was in the last row middle, crew delayed the flight unnecessarily by trying to seat a family together, lights were on when people were trying to sleep at midnight"
Pros: "Crew was great. Made sure I made my connection. Even tried to get me a better placement so I could quickly exit and head to my next flight."
Cons: "It wa super cold on my second flight. Small plane, rather loud."
Cons: "I've tried to respond twice now with a long detailed answer only to get booted out of the page. In short you and are criminals that ripped me off for over 430 dollars U.S. will never use you again"
Cons: "Flight attendants completely unresponsive when overhead space was filled by a lot of backpacks that supposed to go under seats. Also, kept selling alcohol to people who were clearly drunk and were obnoxious and loud the whole trip."
Cons: "First flight delayed 45 min, then cancelled. 2nd flight 3 hrs later."
Pros: "The flight crew were absolutely marvelous and were wonderful on board."
Cons: "British Airways had too tight of connections on flights that we purchased and then they ran late. Because of this, we had to rebook both going to Europe and coming back. Our friends were then charged extra luggage fees when being put on a domestic flight back home after going through customs. It will be difficult for me to want to use British Airways again because of all the flight change notifications we got before traveling and then once we did actual travel."

The stewardess was excellent. Very accommodating in a quiet way, which was appreciated. The only thing that could have been better was the choice of snacks. Chips, cookies, etc. weren't an ideal way to start my day on a 7:00 a.m. flight. Offering fresh fruit, yogurt, or other breakfast foods would be great. 😁

Cons: "Had handicap access seats & the gate reassigned us to bad seats & apart"
Pros: "Flight landed earlier than scheduled making my connecting flight much easier"
Cons: "None"
Pros: "Gateway clean. Wheelchair assistance was helpful, and friendly Flight attendants were courteous"
Cons: "- Tiny bag of pretzels seems cheap for a $600+ ticket. - HATE, HATE, HATE the charges for the first and second checked baggages!! I stopped using UA over 7 years ago because of these charges that came when gas prices were high and never went away. Always use Southwest whenever possible. Cheaper!"
Pros: "Seats were comfortable"
Cons: "One flight attendant a little short with customers or maybe just dry humor, hard to tell. My daughter did not want to talk to him entire trip because of earlier altercation. It would be great if United could put in foot rests in economy and economy."
Cons: "Not having an eight hour delay due to poor scheduling of the airline."
Cons: "Seat could not recline and sat next to a fat person who took over my armrest and and personal space. I got sick on this flight because of everything and I never got sick on a flight before flying United"
Pros: "The seats were comfortable and the entertainment was good."
Cons: "My video monitor was loose and I had to hold it up the whole time I was watching it. I told the flight attendant but they said they didn’t have a screw driver. The food wasn’t good."
Pros: "Almost left on time"
Cons: "Seats that we were assigned was taking , me and my wife were moved to 3 different sets and still ended up separated."
Pros: "On-time departure. Grouped boarding"
Cons: "Had to gate check bag, but I’ve flown this flight often enough to know that. Missed beverage service while dozing . Cart was just 2 rows past and never got a chance."
