Everything in general was great, but we left 30 minutes late
Boarding in NCL is really bad. I'm sure part of that is a directive from the airport that KLM can't change but part of that is due to KLM policy. NCL doesn't announce the gate of departure until 30 minutes before departure. However, when you arrive at the gate area, the gate agents file everyone into one long line and everyone boards from one line at one time. This line can stretch for 200m...easily. There is a separate line for groups 1 and 2 but you don't know it until you get to the gate area and agents don't announce/advertise it. Everyone else is grouped into one line. Are you in group 3? Doesn't matter...you board with group 5. Traveling with a child? Tough luck...you're stuck at the end of the line and board last. The last part is very annoying because none of the gates at NCL (with the exception of 1 used by Emirates) has a jetway. To board, you must leave the gate area, walk downstairs, walk onto the tarmac and walk up stairs to board the plane. Highly challenging if you're traveling with small children. That boarding process begs for a concession to allow people with children to board first because they will need extra time. But there is no such policy. Just a really horrible boarding experience all around.

Pros: "Boarding was efficient and the crew were nice."
Cons: "the seating is horrible. it was the tightest seating I've ever experienced."
Pros: "Flight was on time."
Cons: "Staff: from check in to landing, they could at least smile. Baggage claim was a nightmare, 6 Schengen flights in the same belt."
Pros: "The socks offered in business were comfortable and nice looking. The red wine was good."
Cons: "The food was just average and the seat not too comfortable"
Pros: "Staff were professional and polite."
Cons: "Despite zone boarding, boarding and disembarkation were very slow. Passengers like me with flight connections were very anxious regarding missing these."
Cons: "Half the screens were not working - crew were made aware but nothing was done. Vegetarian choices were poor to non-existent ; I witnessed crew insist to a passenger that there were no vegetarian options! They finally cobbled something together for him but not a pleasant experience"
Pros: "The flight crew was so friendly and the food was really good."
Flight was delayed for 5 hours and we missed our connecting flight. Got rebooked for a late flight and lost our luggage. We lost a day for our vacation and missed a tour that I booked. We are with zero clothing at this time as they have no trace of our luggages. Please help us recover some of our money for the inconvenience.
The economy plus seating was very comfortable. Flight was not stressful.
Food was the most mediocre I have experienced on a transatlantic flight. Crew and staff were superb. Comfort was OK. For the first time ever, my luggage was misplaced between Lufthansa change of flight number and a replacement United flight.
Chairs are hard could be better. Other then that everything is ok
Pros: "Crew was a top notch, very focused and carrying. I am loyal lufthansa fan and been flying with them with more than 20 years."
Cons: "Guys, we need to do something with these outdated business class seats, infotainment system. Omg, last century, movie selection bottom poor :( We are always playing catch up game in terms of interior. How long it took you to offer padding & decent blankets in business."
Cons: "First leg was delayed out of Belgrade so I missed the connection to Washington"
Pros: "Everything about the flight was perfect."
Cons: "Cannot get Lufthansa to issue miles for the flight, or for my Star Alliance flights on Swiss and United. Frankfort terminal transfer distance is very far, and too far if your flight transfer is less than 55 minutes!"
Pros: "The crew was really nice."
Cons: "There were some delays, my luggage didn't arrive to final destination I might receive it only tomorrow and also a lot of gates change."
Pros: "Seating was good"
Cons: "Got a seat in the middle - was pretty annoyed with this."
Pros: "Not a long flight, overhead lockers had space although I wasn't helped to find somewhere. Crew lovely otherwise."
Cons: "Boarding from a connecting flight wasn't enough time, esp as our duty free purchases were selected for additional screening. Food was identical to what we had been offered on previous flight, and the outbound one."
Cons: "I'm still at Heathrow 12 hours later. I never made it to Oslo."
Cons: "Sorry the attitude to help people after a cancelled flight is sucks,"
Pros: "The onboard crew and food were great. The gate crew and grounds were rude and unknowledgable."
Cons: "The great seats we reserved were given to staff and we were stuck by bathrooms & crying babies. My husband’s seat was parallel to a mom of an infant traveling alone.He could not recline because she’d have to step over him. We’re compassionate but these seats are too $ not to use for intended purpose"
Cons: "I booked and paid for special seats (last row in one of the cabins ) but they changed my seats as they changed the plane!"
Cons: "Big difference between aircraft and crew on syd to singapore and the excellent sin to lhr sector"
Pros: "The safety video."
Cons: "Cleanless, dont charge people to change seats when the flight is not super busy...."
Pros: "The crew were above friendly, calling you by name and were very accommodating."
Cons: "Plane was older, seats were grungy and the onboard entertainment was not updated, i.e: small screens with poor visibility, some screens did not even work for some passengers, limited amount of movies/entertainment for a 10 hour flight this was disappointing and seriously makes me reconsider flying British Airways ever again."
Pros: "City airport is very convenient from East London. Flight is only 40 minutes"
Pros: "Movie selection made a long trip feel very short."
Cons: "Luggage didn’t arrive and was left behind during connection flight. Who knows when I’ll receive it."
Pros: "Price and prompt and timely boarding."
Cons: "Old airplane, old entertainment system, below average food on the LHR-IAH leg and charging for food and drinks for the IST-LHR leg which is over 3 hrs."
This was definitely a no frills airline. The flight crew didn’t even offer us water, or anything to purchase. Even the coffee wasn’t free.
the flight was cancelled, then I lost the connection and my purchased chair with extra space as well.
paid for premium economy, and it was a waste of money. Got slightly more legroom and that was it. Definitely an inferior product to their airlines premium economy. Service was rude when you could actually get it. Never again
Cons: "Check in took a very long time. Food was not great. Bathrooms were not cleaned during flight and quite disgusting."
Pros: "Food was very good and crew was very friendly"
Cons: "Seats were very small... very uncomfortable travel 10hs in a tight seat!"
Cons: "The gates were announce at the time of boarding. No enough time to get the gate"
Cons: "Missed my transfer in London because the plane took too long to unboard and I was unable to make it to the gates of my next flight in time, despite there being over an hour connection time. The flight came in slightly late and passports were re-inspected upon unboarding which wasted a lot of time, and Heathrow is a nightmare of an airport on a good day, which made it very difficult to get where I needed to go."
Cons: "Missed connection and this delayed by 20 hours to final destination."
Pros: "The crew was amazing.The seats weren't bad but not super comfortable."
Cons: "The kosher food was excellent and delicious but cold.Our only complaint was that the boss of the crew laughing and making lots of noise when people were trying to sleep.It was great to see people so happy but not during sleep time.I loved the crew.They were very warm and friendly.Boarding was excell"
Cons: "Legroom a little scarce on a 12-hour flight, even though I'm only 5'7" tall."
Cons: "We were delayed out of Chicago. I missed my connection and had to take an extra flight to reach my destination"
Pros: "Amazing crew"
Cons: "Tight seats, no access to actual WiFi unless you purchase a yearly or monthly plan"
Cons: "I flew the first leg of my trip with ANA and the next leg with United and I certainly noticed a difference in terms of customer service. They are less friendly and seemed to have spent more time with a couple of passengers who appeared they know personally than the rest of the passengers."
Pros: "The ease of boarding the plane."
Cons: "I did not like that the gate changed and we were not notified by the gate operators, but we did receive a text message 20 minutes after the gate was changed."
Pros: "the flight attendants and service were amazing and perfect. The green tea from All Nippon Airline was awesome."
Cons: "All the food were terribly salty, inedible because the beef was hard like rock, I was unable to eat or chew. The sauce was salty and terrible so threw them away. In general, the food were inedible and poorly prepared that means they were not considerate and discreet about cooking, selecting material,too. The airline only pick the terribly cheap meat to scam and mistreat the passengers. I felt I was ripped off and sadden."
Pros: "Boarding was great. Staff was very friendly!"
Cons: "On one of my flight home from the Philippines-The 2 male flight attendants should have been working as auto mechanics instead of working as flight attendants. Witnessed sour attitudes toward other people."
Pros: "- Crew was attentive."
Cons: "- Personal device entertainment was intermittently functional, had to use the poor onboard display for entertainment. - Internet access was $39.99 for the length of the trip, that price is ridiculous."
Pros: "Flight was on time, smooth with efficient boarding and quick baggage retrieval."
Cons: "Only one beverage service shortly after takeoff. No additional offers of drink or snack on 6 hour flight. Attendants were sitting around in rear galley. One was knitting! I told them that trash receptacle was full in restroom. The response was "I'll put on gloves and "push it down" but it was still unusable fifteen minutes later. Had to pay $7.99 to access flight map. No earbuds were offered. Attendants were invisible except for collecting trash."
Cons: "Seats are really narrow and hard. They don’t recline much."
Pros: "Friendly crew."
Cons: "Had a mechanical issue we were told didn't need fixed to fly the plane. Took 1 hour and 20 minutes to complete safety checklist so we could take off. We missed our connecting flight to Cancun."
