It depends on the reason you’re visiting the Big Island. If you’re booking a flight to Hawaii for the beach resorts, Kona Airport on the west side of the island is the closest. However, if you’re looking for volcanoes and the more offbeat side of the island, Hilo Airport is your best option.
Passengers travelling from Wales can only travel from Cardiff Airport (CWL) and have to reckon with a flight to Hawaii with two or three stopovers. One of the simplest ways is to book a flight with low-cost airline Flybe to Edinburgh and from there take a Delta flight to Honolulu via New York.
If you want the fewest stopovers possible, Thomas Cook Airlines and Virgin Atlantic operate seasonal flights from Manchester to Los Angeles, San Francisco, and New York (JFK), from where you can catch a flight to Hawaii. If you don’t mind the number of stopovers and prefer to have more options when it comes to airlines, you’ll have to fly out of London Heathrow. British Airways operates regular flights to this airport from Manchester, Leeds Bradford Airport (LBA), and Newcastle International Airport (NCL).
Edinburgh is the airport in Scotland with the most options when it comes to airlines and routes. If you prefer the least number of stopovers possible, you can book a flight to Hawaii via New York (JFK) from this airport, operated by Delta. If you want more choices of airlines and don’t mind the number of stopovers in your route, you can fly out of Edinburgh, Glasgow Airport (GLA), Inverness Airport (INV), or Aberdeen International Airport (ABZ) to London Heathrow, and from there connect to Hawaii via Los Angeles or San Francisco.
KAYAK’s flight Price Forecast tool uses historical data to determine whether the price for a given destination and date is likely to change within 7 days, so travellers know whether to wait or book now.
Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Typical JAL, nearly everything was fantastic."
Cons: "I don't think it could be made better but legroom on this flight was cramped. Certain planes in the JAL fleet have really cramped legroom and uncomfortable seats."
Pros: "Food, service,"
Cons: "Some crazy flight itinerary they should not sell at all! At first I thought layover was same location only to find out it was another airport across of time. Flew into ITM and flew out KIX and boarding ticket it says only OSAKA so I didnt know. I barely made the flight....if they had accommodate the transportation I would understand. But they tell you, you have to make it there on your own. Another CRAZY information is that I thought at the very least the baggage will be transferred. But nope! You have to pick up the baggage and ride the train across town to the other station. Whoever made this itinerary should be really fired and no longer work at this company. You take a great airline and make the experience so bad."

Lucky I live here in Hawaii, can you imagine being a tourist and you lost your card? Excellent customer service."
Pros: "Excellent entertainment and the crews attention made me fell welcomed."
Pros: "Customer service was really good"

Cons: "The horrible JET LAG I have now lol."
Pros: "Everyone is polite, helpful, and the flight was quite pleasant."

Pros: "Good food. Very friendly and helpful attendants. They also gave souvenir toys for my 2-year-old son."
Pros: "The fact that everything is included with the flight makes it very easy to fly with JAL. The staff was friendly and helpful when I was checking in. The agent tried her best to get me a window or aisle seat but was unable to. That didn't matter though. Airlines in the US should learn from them and treat their customers the same way."
Pros: "The airplane and all"
Cons: "A little bit in the sakura lounge"

Cons: "Seats are too small for tall travelers."
Pros: "We were coming back from treking in Nortwest Viet Nam. JAL upgraded us to business class (ie, sleeper bed) for the Ha Noi to Tokyo, and gave us good seats on to HNL. FOOD was the best. Next time we'll try HNL-SAI entry to Nam. The Boeing 787 was a great ride to/from Ha Noi, particularly with JAL service."

Pros: "The crew were all exceptionally pleasant, helpful."

Cons: "Aside from having to take the red-eye, the seats for our return flight were the most cramped I've ever been. My 6' husband's knees were touching the seat in front of him, and the seats were super narrow. I can't remember being so cramped in my entire life. That's really my biggest complaint, but when the flight is 6 1/2 hours, being cramped gets old really quick."
Pros: "Flight attendants and ticket agents were very nice and helpful."
Pros: "Plenty of leg room, which as a tall person I truly appreciate. They give you slippers, blanket, pillow on every (international?) flight. I flew Korea to Japan and Japan to Hawaii. Got free meals on all flights, even my short two hr flight between Korea and Japan. Free booze too!"

Pros: "Crew members were very nice. All staff members definitely embodied the courteousness and professionalism of Japan. The house slippers were a nice touch and we really enjoyed the large movie selection. The miso soup with meals was great! Overall really enjoyed our flying experience with jal and would fly with them again."
Cons: "The food for our return flight from haneda to Honolulu was definitely subpar compared to the food we had on our first jal Honolulu to Hong Kong flight (layover in narita). Also the plane was not as big and older so we didn't have the touch screen. We were quite impressed on our Honolulu to Hong Kong flight, then were a little let down on our haneda to Honolulu flight."

Cons: "I didn't like the other asian flight attendants. They were rude. Asked for water, she said we're not serving water only juice at this time. Asked for Consume or Dashi there weren't any. asked for diet coke they ran out. very small things but weren't able to satisfy our trip back to HNL."

Cons: "Place the passengers in a hotel rather than have us us crammed in a lounge where you can hear angry passengers arguing."

Pros: "ANA's staff were professional and helpful. They will do their very best to accommodate your request within reason, very satisfied how they handled our issue."

Pros: "My 96-yr-old father was given an airport wheelchair after we checked his own transport chair. He was wheeled through security and to the departure gate. We were advised they changed us to a bulkhead row w/an unoccupied seat adjacent to his. Twice during the flight one of the flight attendants came to tell him that she would help him off the plane so to wait for her after the rest of the passengers disembarked. The meal was very tasty.Chicken karaage was not crispy but I wouldn't expect it to be. The rest of the items were well seasoned with the right consistency. Dessert was a flan custard with passion fruit sauce (very Hawaii!), even including a few seeds from the fruit as garnish."
Cons: "limited movie selections"
Pros: "the service is good"
Cons: "the seat is too small"
Cons: "My suitcase was "lost" in Tokyo/Narita on the way to Shanghai. Don't know what happened. Got my luggage two days later. This isn't Kayak's fault. ANA should've done something to make this right."
Pros: "Cabin was clean and really comfortable seats. The crew were very friendly and helpful."
Cons: "Choices of food."
Pros: "In-flight service from staff was excellent as always, food is good but not outstanding (but let's be clear this was economy class), movie selection is good."
Cons: "From Japan to other places they're always organised, but boarding in London was a little chaotic which is a common problem for ANA flights in other countries *to* Japan - they hadn't set up signs properly or made clear announcements for families with children, First Class, Business class boarding etc. The First Class/Diamond status queue (not for me!) was actually set up in front of a supporting pillar, basic organisational things like that. On balance though, still a top-class airline."
Pros: "The airline gave us pillows and a small cover"
Cons: "The food was nasty, and no air circulation plus so hot in there"
Cons: "The food tasted very much like caned food and the seat had a pouch from wear and tear which wasn't very comfortable at all. Service didn't seem to anticipate service or emphasize needs."
Cons: "The seats were uncomfortable to sleep in."
Pros: "Very friendly crew both on the ground and in the air."
Cons: "Entertainment options (movies/TV) are rather limited and mostly not to my taste. Entertainment was also the same on the flights there and back, meaning that on the second flight, there was even less choice."

Pros: "Great comfort."
Cons: "Limited entertainment compared to other airlines."
Pros: "I like the professionalism, politeness and friendly service introduce by the staffs and of course the Pilot of the aircraft....very punctual."

Pros: "Service is excellent. Efficient service as well."

Pros: "I really like flying on a 787, seats are comfortable, less noise, overall better than all other planes including Airbus (some 380's are horrible)"
Pros: "ANA has some of the best quality service I have seen on an airline for awhile. The crew is pleasant, welcoming, and very helpiful. The food was decent for an airline and there was enough space for me in the economy class. I'm 193 cm by the way. Space is required for long flights. The entertainment was very good with a volume selection of the lastest movies that recently came out a month or two ago. If you have a chance to fly ANA take it. You won't be disappointed."
Pros: "This is the way to fly long haul."
Cons: "Frustration is it is impossible to sleep during the breakfast service, but this is a problem for all airlines and Virgin is better than most."
Pros: "Amazing !"
Cons: "Nothing all good really"
Cons: "Information on when we can check in on upcoming flights. Other airlines we have booked for flights will email us 24 hours prior to departure. Virgin Atlantic did not. I had to call and I was directed to their web site and was able to check in on line. Thanks"
Pros: "The staff were helpful. The entertainment had good variety. Adjustable head rest was useful."
Cons: "The seat was a little lumpy. More leg room would always be appreciated."
Cons: "Very cramped aisle seat and I kept being knocked by passing crewe including knocking over a cup of water."
Cons: "There was a medical issue and Virgin Atlantic refused to accept the ticket code - for any price - toward a new ticket. I paid for a new ticket and took another airline."
Cons: "My tv screen could not show the movies"
Pros: "Comfy, nice crew, attentive."
Cons: "The food is not very good at all. One mediocre meal served soon after take-off, then for the rest of the flight tasteless, cardboard pasties and wraps."
Pros: "I had one of the few empty seats next to me."
Cons: "The food is awful. Not enough toilets."
Cons: "My bag was damaged in transit"
Pros: "Provides the service you'd expect from an international carrier. Boarded on time, seat actually reclines, meals, baggage, seat assignments are included in the price. Staff treat you well and the price isn't bad."
Cons: "Virgin website is slow and not intuitive. Couldn't get seat assignment until i was at the gate. No explanation why. Boarding announcements delivered via ESP. Half of the passengers were still in the boarding area because no one heard announcements. Arrived 30 min early but had to wait on the tarmac for 45 min for a parking gate. Baggage delivery at JFK took forever."
Pros: "Everything except the food"
Cons: "The food is atrocious. Even if I have to pay to upgrade my meal, I would..."
Pros: "Movies. Meals. Wine. Freq"
Pros: "Food and snacks!!!!!"
Cons: "Missed connection to SFO"
Cons: "Queue at boarding gate for upper class ticket holders Bus transfer to plane - Virgin is not a LoCo airline! Upper Class Service was slow - understaffed?"
Pros: "We paid extra for exit row seats so we had good leg space"
Cons: "The seats are so small that only your backside fits on it and we are not big people. There is no support for the thigh and I had severe cramps after leaving the aircraft. The flight to LA with Virgin Australia was far more comfortable."
Pros: "The cabin crew were excellent!"
Cons: "I paid extra for Economy Delight seats for me and my wife. Shortly after take-off, our calm and comfortable more or less empty section of the aircraft was colonised by an extended family of Orthodox Jews in a kind of airborne West Bank situation. They weren’t in our section of the cabin at all to start with, and I don’t know why they were apparently able to get a free upgrade that I had to pay £100 for. We went from being in an almost empty cabin to being basically sat in the middle of an Orthodox Jewish kindergarten. It was awful! They were noisy, messy, were constantly getting in and out of their seats, the back of my seat kept getting kicked, and there was even a baby crawling around the aisle. We were surrounded. I have no idea whether this is characteristic of Orthodox Jewish family life, or just a completely inconsiderate family. They didn’t exactly ruin my flight, but they didn’t make it enjoyable either. I asked to be moved. The cabin crew were great and acknowledged the difficulty of the situation. My wife lost her window seat but at least we still had the legroom and peace and quiet."
Pros: "Crew very friendly"
Cons: "Seats and legroom poor if you’re six feet tall"
Pros: "Friendly cabin crew, excellent food and drinks. Very happy with the service we received"
Pros: "Checking in at the counter even I wasn't allocated a seat but the gentleman was very humble and polite."
Cons: "The fact that I was told I would be given a seat at the boarding gate. I got to the airport very early to get a good seat only to be that and was given a very uncomfortable seat where I couldn't stretch my legs well because of a box on the floor situated to my left leg and to make the matter even more annoying my screen was not working which I was forced to take one heavy meant-so-called laptop. And finally cabin crew were lacking serious customer service and when u ask for something they were just so reluctant to deliver as if we were given a free ticket or something. May it be noted that my ticket was not that cheap to be treated in such manner."
Pros: "Cool flight, mainly because it was empty. Good food"
Cons: "Seats weren't that comfortable. Entertainment sucked because the screen functions were terrible, very difficult"
Cons: "Too much food - not enough time to sleep in comfort!"
Pros: "Quite a big choice of movies and TV shows to watch, more than enough for an eight hour flight. Normal headphone plugs so you can use your own."
Cons: "I booked together with my wife, yet we were allocated seats apart and were not able to be reassigned together. The leg room was so tight that I could not pick up things off the floor without putting my head in the next persons lap. Though the cabin crew were smiley and friendly, it was hard to get their attention when needed. The PA system is much louder than the entertainment, so announcements were ear bursting. The dinner selections ran out early, so a good proportion did not get their choice."
Cons: "Food was terrible"
Pros: "We really enjoyed flying with Virgin and so made sure we booked into a Virgin flight for this trip and not delta. The food was good, entertainment good when it worked."
Cons: "We got told that our flight number had changed from VS103 to VS4049 but still a Virgin flight. Only when we checked in we found out we were now flying with Delta and number was now DL285. Was not happy as wanted to fly with Virgin.The seats were ok but the entertainment system went down mid film. Took an hour to get started again. The games didn't work. Staff were a bit grumpy."
Cons: "We were told over the phone that we could bring our kayaks with us to Africa but the airport staff denied not only our kayaks, but also our paddles which were in a standard ski bag. Their excuse was that both the kayaks and paddle bags were 2 inches too long. .. TWO INCHES!!!!!! We had record of the person we talked to and the time and date, but none of that seemed to matter. It caused A HUGE INCONVENIENCE for us since we are in Zambia for 6 weeks without our gear to paddle one of the most challenging rivers in the world... the Zambezi. Now we are constantly trying to acquire the proper equipment with very little success. We run a nonprofit called the Montana Kayak Academy which provides free whitewater instruction to youth between 8 &18 yrs old and we will be sure to tell everyone we know to NOT TRAVEL WITH EITHER VIRGIN ATLANTIC OR BRITISH AIRWAYS.... EVER!!! VERY DISAPPOINTED! !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"
Pros: "Cabin crew were friendly and attentive. Flight was on time and we got to Atlanta early"
Cons: "Could do with more legroom. Food not the greatest"
Pros: "Virgin atlantic is the best airline with Dreamliner"
Pros: "I had a great experience from start to end of my trip. Most of the staff were pleasant and professional. Food wasn't okay and red wine on flight from Heathrow was delicious."
Cons: "The red wine on the flight from Lagos was too sharp. That is the regular one served on virgin flight so was glad when I tasted the new one served on the flight from Heathrow, thinking it's been changed!"
Pros: "the crew were the friendliest I've flown with (Irish & British)... the lighting was very relaxing and the continuous snack service was much appreciated (especially ice cream).. gonna try premium economy next time as the seats looked even better..."
Cons: "Vera the entertainment screen was very good but there were no newly released movies, everything seemed to be a couple of months old... the leather headrest was comfortable but kept slipping down to behind my neck, would be nice if it was lockable in position.."
Pros: "Everything went very fast and smooth. I didn't have to queue for the boarding. The Sita were very comfortable, the crew very friendly and halepful and the selection of the movies A+."
Cons: "My headphones and those of my neighbors did not work."
Pros: "I liked everything, which is very uncharacteristic :)) At least compared to the big American carriers or the national European ones, VA is a gen - esthetically for sure. Clean, comfy, stylish! Will be my choice from now on."
Pros: "1st class, what's not to like?"
Pros: "Food was great, plenty of it also"
Cons: "I'm 6'4" and there was no acknowledgement by the crew that I was squashed into a tight seat."
Cons: "this is not an airline, this is a bus company"
Pros: "Audrey agent at the counter at Heathrow was amazing assisted me in getting my bags located and transfer from air malta to vigin"
Pros: "Virgin Atlantic had a very attractive decor.Food was great& staff as well. Polite and professional ."
Cons: "The seat I had was a bit snug leg wise and recline wise. Could not get comfortable at all."
Cons: "I did not get the requested meal. I had requested Asian Veg meal. I had reconfirmed that Virgin Atlantic Kiosk at Heathrow airport as well. In flight when I asked cabin crew they said they didn't get any request. I was hungry whole flight. Very bad experience."
Cons: "cabin was nice but cold"
Pros: "Not much not to like about this experience except for cramped seating in coach."
Pros: "The plane was very nice with great lighting. More food would have been nice as it was a long flight The crew were variable - most very helpful but one or two not so much"
Cons: "Not enough food for everyone and no snacks between meals, which was very bad considering it was a 10 hour flight Entertainment was great, seats were OK (certainly had worse)"
Pros: "As expected, great customer service from Virgin. Great Vera system. Friendly and welcoming experience."
Cons: "The seats!!!! Omg I got bed sores. Not really but they have got to be the most uncomfortable things I have ever sat in. For a European flight from Uk they'd be fine. But for 9 hours...not good. The short hop down from ATL to MCO after was a blessed relief. Virgin, you have got to think a little more about your passengers asses. Also, having flown with just about every major transatlantic operator, including previous trips with Virgin, the knee room was not good. If you stretched out under the seat in front you were ok but draw your knees up... I wore short trousers for comfort and have sore points on my knees where they rubbed against the material of the chair in front."
Cons: "Cold draft at all times."
Pros: "Flight was on time .. Friendly crew. Good entertainment system"

Pros: "Boarded in good time, friendly crew, flight was comfortable, entertainment was good - and most importantly, landed on time!"

Pros: "Flight attendants were amazing"
Pros: "The crew was absolutely amazing. I was HORRIBLY ILL the entire 6.5hour flight, vomiting LITERALLY every 15minutes in the bathroom. They took care of me in every way possible. You have no idea how THANKFUL I WAS AND AM FOR THEM. SO MUCH ALOHA FROM HAWAII, best flight crew EVER!!! PLEASE reward them"
Cons: "If I wasn't deathly ill right before I had to get on the flight!"

Cons: "It was as good as can be expected."
Pros: "The crew was amazing! They were all so nice and helpful"
Cons: "The WiFi didn’t work"
Pros: "Crew was nice. The tv/movie technology was fantastic!! Huge selection of movies that made the time fly by, and very easy to use as opposed to my other flight over. Food was good. I love that you get tons of food and drinks (more food than I could eat actually)."
Cons: "I couldn't get both of my boarding passes printed in London so I had to get it from an agent in Minneapolis. I hate that it's so hard to get a seat assigned and a boarding pass before the trip."
Pros: "The delta crew both ways between Portland and London was excellent! They saw to our every need and were smiling every air mile of the way. Plane"
Cons: "Need to have food choices available for those with allergies. Almost everything had gluten and soy in it and I am very allergic to those. I had to give away all snacks and most of my food. Even in comfort+ class the seats are tiny with little legroom. Also, please clean the bathroom every few hours"
Pros: "Food was so good. Crew was also very nice."
Pros: "Entertainment and food and service were great."
Pros: "It was horrible. Delta really should have cancelled and refunded the flight altogether."
Pros: "Amazing service and F&B offered was wonderful"
Pros: "Crew were friendly. Food was ok. Gave us lunch, snacks, warm cookie and sandwich/dinner for 9 hour flight. Needed all of it."
Cons: "Space would have been really tight if not moved to bulkhead."
Pros: "Good crew, good service."
Cons: "No complaints!"
Pros: "Everything. Food, staff, checking in. All were great"
Cons: "Would have preferred they let me choose a window seat. I wasn’t given the option"
Pros: "The crew where extremely friendly, helpful and visible. As the flight was being boarded the gate agent saw me with my cane and she upgraded me to a seat closer to the front of the plane without being asked. Those extra little touches are appreciated"
Pros: "The crew were kind and courteous. The seat was comfortable."
Pros: "Boarding was swift and cabin crew where attentive. Baggage drop was swift and luggage arrived quickly. Global entry at ATL was swift."
Cons: "delta security in the UK is an absolute farce. The security screening at LHR was long and understaffed"
Pros: "Decent service"
Cons: "I booked with KLM (sky team) two separate return bookings on via SKY TEAM JFK > heathrow (delta) Heathrow > Amsterdam (klm) On the return leg, I couldn’t check my bag all the way through to JFK even though I stayed on SKY TEAM carriers. That should be possible, otherwise the value of staying in SKY TEAM isn’t as valuable to me."
Cons: "Why use old planes for such a long flight? Toilet overflowed, poor quality tv, and only peanuts?"
Cons: "One of the older male flight attendants was not polite. Got a ride, short response when asking him for anything."
Pros: "Good films"
Cons: "Seats cramped, legroom bad"
Pros: "Very friendly crew"
Cons: "Lack of subtitles on available movies & series"
Cons: "I had the feeling they were short on crew staff, they were barely checking and I called them a couple of times, the blue light was on but no one came to check what I needed. At first the reading lights were not working and they got those reset at least. One choice of food was not available anymore once they got to our seats."
Pros: "Staff were friendly and attentive. Boarding was good - efficient and quick."
Cons: "Seats were not that comfortable. Aircraft very noisy. Competition offers a much better service. Transfer in Atlanta was a nightmare, taking almost two hours from landing to getting to the domestic gate for the next sector. only three immigration staff working."
Pros: "The flight was on time."
Cons: "This was an almost 6 hour long flight, LAX to OGG. The aircraft was older and for a 6 hour flight, they really should use a bigger and newer aircraft. The entertainment systems on the back of the seat worked sporadically and the PA system was too loud and every time the PA system was used while we had our headsets on, it was excruciating We had no warning in order to remove our headsets before it blasted into our ears. We were amazed that after paying a considerable sum for our tickets and being in the air for 6 hours, there was limited meal service and we were required to purchase a sandwich in order to eat. I fly Delta frequently and this was by far the worse flight I can remember."
Pros: "Friendly staff staff, smooth boarding experience, DC+ positive experience"
Cons: "757-200 outdated for having spent 10 hours on that same plane (stop but no plane change) having flown shorter haul flights on many updated 757 was disappointing."
Pros: "The variety of what you could listen to or watch. Liked the way the seats reclined. Plenty of leg room (I am short)."
Pros: "There were alot of good movies to choose from, and the food wasn't bad."
Cons: "It's always very uncomfortable to sit on a plane for a long time, but that's nobody's fault"
Pros: "Flight wasn't full so the service was very good lots of food and snacks and we arrived early too"
Cons: "Music was a. Bit limited"
Pros: "The food was excellent, as well as the flight attendants."
Pros: "Crew, food was good, comfort"
Cons: "The boarding .. We had to climb the steps to get in .. But the crew apologised"
Pros: "Early boarding for family. Flight crew was decent"
Cons: "Super cramped seats. Entertainment system was broken. Only small snacks and drinks for a 5.5 hour flight"
Pros: "Extra leg room with Sky priority"
Cons: "We upgraded to Sky priority but we're not allowed to load with Sky priority. They made us wait for Zone 3. We also did not get the designated overhead space we paid for and had to put our bags under the seat in front of us. A bit disappointing to pay $240 extra and not get what we paid for."
Cons: "The entry into the Atlanta airport after landing was somewhat chaotic. We were backed up circling before landing for ~ 1 hour and there seemed to be an unusually large number of folks trying to get through customs/security - noe Delta's fault but an unwelcome experience after being in the air for 8+ hours."
Pros: "The crew were nice"
Cons: "The wifi didn't work at all, the entertainment system wasn't working until they did a reboot during the flight"
Pros: "I like Delta empowering women."
Pros: "Seating was nice...comfortable. Lighting was good, captain wasn't too chatty :)"
Cons: "This flight attendant was just terrible. Wish I could remember her name for this review... She had about half of the First Class cabin offended as soon as meals started getting served - I didn't see ANYONE around me that got what they asked for, and then when people stated the issue, she didn't respond very well. I tried to take things in stride (first world problems?) but it is a bummer to pay extra for the first class treatment and then to not have that great experience, especially on back to back 5ish hour flights."
Pros: "Meal quality has improved"
Pros: "Plenty of movies and music to entertain"
Cons: "Economy seats have no leg room and seats are very uncomfortable to your back during a 8hr flight. Flight attendants skipped rows for drinks, snacks, etc and would have to be called back. Paying close to a thousand per ticket, you'd expect a little better experience but oh well."
Pros: "Service was good. Attendants polite. Information good."
Pros: "There wasn't much to like. Just about everything was wrong. The plane was a newish 787, so it didn't feel old. Boarding went well because we complained about how tired we, at 70+, were because the flight was late and we'd been standing up; this resulted in us being boarded with some of the latish priority passengers."
Cons: "Everything, really. The plane was very crowded; small seats, little leg room. The meals were mediocre and the cabin staff were just barely the good side of unhelpful, officious and unfriendly The flight was inexplicably 2 hours or more late in excellent weather. No apologies given, the flight that was originally scheduled for 8 pm left close to 11 pm. While boarding the only light is a purplish ambient lighting that made it impossible to read anything, including the safety material, until the inflight entertainment was loaded up (the lights are only controlled through software-actuated virtual buttons on the screen). The inflight entertainment system is hard to use, too, designed by idiots for use by geniuses. But the very worst thing was the stress caused by Virgin Atlantic in just about guaranteeing that we would miss this flight. On our outbound voyage in January, VA, for reasons nobody knows, booked an ADDITIONAL leg from JHB to CPT on BA at 12:30 pm, even though we were already ON the earlier 9:30 BA flight we'd booked and paid for. Then, when we didn't show up for this spurious flight (because we were already in the air) we didn't book (BA swears they have evidence that VA made this booking), our return flight CPT to JBG three months later was cancelled WITHOUT OUR KNOWLEDGE. If I hadn't been interested in knowing, the day before the flight, if the return BA flight had a meal, I would have showed up at the CPT airport in April and discovered that I had no way to get to the VA flight in JHB! As it was I spent an entire day trying to get back on the flight I'd already paid for. I advise EVERYONE who uses VA to reconfirm flights over and over. There is still no explanation for this. I will never NEVER fly VA again. They are not to be trusted."
Pros: "I didn’t even catch this flight - the connection time was impossible causing unnecessary stress!!! Just don’t sell this ticket which such a tight connection."

Pros: "the crew was great; super well prepared ladies with professional behavior. my compliments. also the snack was excellent and finally no junky food but a healthier offer. bravissimi!!!"
Cons: "Cancelling my ticket and put me on another flight Then lost my bag I didn’t receive my bag in final destination"
Pros: "MAN-MUC & MUC-CPH via LH. Business class. LH Businesss class is middle seat of 3 is empty and larger amounts of baggage plus you have access to lounges. Both planes flew and arrived reasonably on time, which is what I look for.And I got all the Business Class extras."
Cons: "Security at Manchester was very slow - long enough make me ill from standing in one place too long. But then I was well looked after. The meals on both flights were identical; I don't think it can be a big problem to correct that. I took a long time to get accepted by the WiFi in the two lounges."
Pros: "Flight departed on time. Crew were friendly and efficient"
Cons: "Boarding seem to be chaotic, no boarding by group or seat number."
Cons: "Food and rounds for drinks"

Pros: "We got two drinks, I had an empty seat next to me which made things more comfortable"

Pros: "Seat was comfortable and cool."
Cons: "Everything else"
Cons: "This was a smooth as clockwork journey, the transit was easy and we were kept well informed about changes in the gate number"
Pros: "Boarding was great. There is priority boarding available for those booked on connecting long haul premium economy flights."
Cons: "The seat was very uncomfortable. For a 2 hour flight, it was okay. Any longer would have been difficult."
Pros: "Clean airplane, Nice seats. Very nice crew. Good connecting flight."
Pros: "The portion of my trip from San Francisco to Honolulu -- provided by United Airlines, not by Lufthansa -- was frustrating and uncomfortable: more than five hours in a small Boeing 737, which hardly permitted any reclining of the seats.and provided but limited in-flight services"
Cons: "Use a mid-size plane designed for long distances between California and the Hawaiian Islands, including full services."
Cons: "boarding was chaotic"
Pros: "Non of the usual manic stumbling from one inefficient process to the next a la Ryanair, Easyjet or Jet2"
Cons: "Flight delays"
Pros: "On time, Staff were excellent"
Cons: "Poor snack (sugary cookie) Big rush to make connection in Frankfurt, almost missed it. Should allow at least 2 hours to connect as they use buses to transfer from plane to terminal and often have to go through security again."

Pros: "Crew was personable and friendly"
Pros: "The food between Frankfort to Istanbulwas lovely and the staff nicely"

Cons: "Flight canceled"
Pros: "Good space in cabin compared to other airlines and excellent service by crew"
Cons: "Benefits for frequent flyers and senators have been eroded significantly . also it has been made much harder to achieve status. In the past, complimentary upgrades were done frequently. nowadays it doesn't happen anymore. For someone who is flying approximately 30 times per year with star alliance, this is dissatisfying. I also don't understand why my preferences from my profile are not used in the pre-allocation of my seat."
Pros: "Standard Lufthansa short haul, Crew attentive"
Cons: "arrived off stand"
Pros: "Great service !!!!"
Cons: "The return leg has been nothing but a disaster, in every way possible, specifically my time and financially. At no point in the booking process, when I paid over $800 for the trip, was I told that I needed a specific travel visa (Canadian ETA) to fly back into Toronto for my return flight. Subsequently when I checked in for my flight yesterday morning in Manchester, England, I did not have the required travel documents and had to be rerouted onto a flight into the U.S. at a cost to me of $350. The rerouted flight got me to Washington Dulles airport, where I then had to purchase a second flight to get me home to Cleveland, Ohio, at an additional/extra cost of $450. MY CAR IS PARKED AT TORONTO PEARSON INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT!!! I am having to now rent a car and drive there tomorrow (Friday) to collect my car, at another additional cost of $100 plus a 10-hour round trip. Due to the lack of information and communication on your companies behalf, I am down close to a $1,000 and will lose 2-days in work as of the additional days I am having to travel back to Toronto to collect my vehicle. I would appreciate contact from your organization to find the avenue I need to take for compensation of my time and finances. Regards"
Pros: "The food was kind of nice"
Cons: "Hardly any leg room, hardly any elbow room, got middle sitting on all my flights and the lay overs were terrible and last but not least my baggage were I had my holiday did not show up for two days. When it did I tipped the driver 20 pounds as he deserved it more than anyone anyways. Oh yeah almost forgot to mention my bag looks like it went through a meat grinder. Thanks Lufthansa baggage handlers your the best ever ! And BTW this para graph speaks for a my stops and transfers"
