Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Didn’t like anything. Mediocre all round."
Cons: "Disembarkation took 40 mins due to which most passengers struggled to catch connecting flights. Very poor service by Lufthansa to help delayed passengers."
Pros: "Boarding was fast and practical"
Cons: "Food and beverage"
Pros: "Boarding was quick and good"
Pros: "Nothing at all, whole experience was incredibly stressful"
Cons: "The transfer was awful. Long line for the frankly bizarre security check despite never leaving the terminal, incredibly rude staff at Frankfurt airport, all wearing may we help badges, so kind of answered their own question. Check in staff once we had sprinted th length of the terminal very rude"
Pros: "Crew very helpful."
Cons: "Both flights late. Food was worthy rather than tasty. Seats small. Too much plastic - why not use non plastic cups. Sexist safety card."
Cons: "More varieties of whisky on board"
Cons: "The entertainment system broke down completely on the whole plane and the crew was sort of grumpy."
Pros: "on time."
Pros: "Staff were ok, did all they could"
Cons: "Not enough information especially for people with connecting flights"
Pros: "Everything was on time and efficient."
Pros: "Despite the short flight we were still given food and as always I love airline food. Free alcohol is always a bonus as well! Nice crew and timely take offs and landings. Could bring two hand luggage (backpack and suitcase) which I like even though I didn't have to pay extra!"
Cons: "No negatives."
Cons: "There was not enough room for all the people’s cabin size luggage. They allowed people to get on board with big coats once they’re in the plain they take off the coats and place them up. Those coats take the same space as a small suitcase. I asked the fly attendants for assistance and they didn’t even pretend to care about the situation. I had to put my luggage under the seat for the entire flight, which ended up reducing the very reduced legroom. What this airline is trying to do is; to charge passengers twice for cabin size luggage. This has been my worst experiences with airlines. Lufthansa is definitely an airline to avoid."
Pros: "Very explanatory clear and responsive. There was a short delay they kept us informed clearly and responsibly. Excellent flight and superb performance. Very polite and helpful."
Cons: "Flight from Heathrow to Frankfurt delayed, when we arrived we had no chance of making our connecting flight to Split yet no one told us. No one at the gate which didn’t say final call (or on any of the boards) or anyone calling us over the tannoy at any point. Super rude “flight manager” A. Turini burst out laughing when we told him our situation and when I asked why he said “Well would it make you happier if I cry instead?” So unprofessional."
Pros: "The ground staff in Heathrow was helpful. They happily swapped me onto an earlier flight to Munich after I spotted delays out of Munich, allowing me ample time to connect in Munich airport"

Pros: "Everything was perfect ... pilots are so good and professional..!!)"
Cons: "Poor food on first leg. Sat by a man who was allowed to have 7 cans of beer. On second leg of journey I was willing to pay for food. The best choice for anyone trying to eat a healthy diet was pot noodles. Air Canada get 2 stars. Return journey on United gets 4stars."

Pros: "Smooth process. Regular updates."

Cons: "The flight was late."
Pros: "Easy check-in and helpful staff. I would absolutely fly with Lufthansa again"

Cons: "There was very confusing and contradictory information on what you can take with you on top of your cabin luggage. e.g. Can you or can you not take a small shoulder bag with you."
Pros: "Nie odbyl size powodu opuznienia samolotu z Chicago do Londynu"
Pros: "crew at the gate really excellent"
Cons: "usual plane handling at Frankfurt - bus to terminal, 60 mins is not enough to wait for bus 15 mins drive 10 then go through security and passport control then go from B to A leaving no time to catch a plane Lufthansa scheduling need to experience what they do to passengers"
Pros: "Flights were cancelled that day due to a storm, but Lufthansa were able to fly an empty aircraft from Rome to fly us from London to Frankfurt. Despite the circumstances, Lufthansa were able to still offer catering. Thank you for your cimmitment."
Cons: "Lufthansa in general could invest a little more in the food they serve. Lufthansa's domestic and inter European flights are never a culinary highlight. :-("
Pros: "Was informed that boarding would be delayed but began within minutes. Arriva time was spot on"
Cons: "It was too warm. The air above was not cool"
Pros: "The second leg of my journey was good. The airplane was comfortable and everything about the crew was top notch."
Cons: "The craft on the first leg of my trip had the seats extremely close together. I would estimate that I only had 25 cm between my knees and the seat I had it for me. Also, we were seated on the airplane approximately one hour before ideparture. This was an additional hour I had to sit uncomfortably."
Cons: "There was no food included. I was onboard for over 9 hours total and no included food."
Pros: "WE ARE STILL NOT HOME. WAS ORIGINALLY SUPPOED TO GET HOME AT 6P LAST NIGHT BUT BECAUSE OF CANCELLATIONS WE ARE STILL STUCK IN CHICAGO’S AIRPORT AND IM NEVER BOOKING THROUGH KAYAK OR KIWI EVER AGAIN. GETTING MONEY BACK FOR THIS BEYOND SHITTY EXPERIENCE STILL WOULDNT BE ENOUGH TO MAKE THIS RIGHT."

Pros: "I really like Iceland air and have always found them to be the best but I can’t say this flight was very enjoyable"
Cons: "Plane had the least leg room of any plane I have ever flown on. There was no entertainment which was good since I couldn’t even put my tray down when the person in front reclined. Seats very uncomfortable. Staff didn’t seem like the usually very friendly Icelandair people"
Pros: "Crew was nice. Didn't smell, good air circulation (& I was right next to the bathrooms)."
Cons: "Really was a good flight. No complaints."
Pros: "We arrived only about an hour late?"
Cons: "We boarded late which seems to be the norm for Iceland air. Usually when an airline is a few minutes late departing they try and explain why and then make up the time, but we received no explanation for the late boarding, or the even later departure, or for why we lost even more time in the air."
Pros: "The attendants are all nice and efficient!"
Pros: "Available WiFi The outlet functioned."
Cons: "The food choices were awful. Nothing that wasn't spicy. Seats not very comfortable."
Pros: "I loved that when I checked in online I was given the opportunity to take a seat with extra leg room. Service was great."
Cons: "The connection in Reykjavik does make the flight from Gatwick to Washington rather long but it also gave me the opportunity to see some new views and stop off for a tour on a previous flight."
Pros: "Ok price"
Cons: "No checked bags included, but this was unclear at the time of purchase, even though it was an international flight."
Pros: "Spacious and great service. I will fly Icelandic again."
Pros: "Inexpensive tickets"
Cons: "No inflight meals"
Pros: "Comfortable seats & warm blankets"
Cons: "No snacks on a seven plus hour flight?"
Cons: "Icelandair need to re-assess their policy and start feeding their passengers. It’s was a horrible experience."
Pros: "The lights in the cabin were great set up to look like the Aurora"
Cons: "Offered 1 drink and no snack. Rarely do you see the crew on their flights"
Pros: "After a long journey overall, it was nice to have an easy plane ride to Iceland!"
Cons: "Reykjavik Airport was the worst for lines, delays, and boarding, You are bused to and from the terminal/plane."
Pros: "Great service and crew. Food was excellent"
Cons: "London to Newark with connection in Iceland. Total 9 hours Need to update new movies. Icelandair has a large selection but of older movies that we all have seen already."
Pros: "On board entertainment was excellent"
Cons: "flight was delayed and crew and captain would state it would only be a few minutes while we sat on the tarmac for 2 hours. captain also did not tell us what was going on and no updates."
Cons: "Does this airline ever leave on time. Glad we did not have a connecting flight this time."
Pros: "Tickets were much less expensive routing from Newark through you'll "pay" on the end."
Cons: "Reyk is growing faster than it's ability to manage it's flow of passengers. Expect a lack of seating for gates; heavy passenger jams in the terminal, and lengthy waits whilst standing in hot, stuffy, packed busses before boarding. Don't assume the prices (Kr) at the Lagarde terminal shop are reasonable: water bottle=$4, beef stick=$8, 2×2" granola bar=$6, personal pizza=$17, small bag of fried fish crisps gullskifur=$13. Bring food and water from your previous stop and eat your food near the check-out whlist watching the facial expressions of the travelers who are paying their bills at the airport shop."
Pros: "Business class catering on board is great for a inter Europe flight. very nice aeroplane"
Pros: "Air crews were nice and helpful. In flight entertainment was good"
Cons: "Check in at London Gatwick was HORRIBLE. Long line with too few employees who were incredibly slow and inefficient. However, boarding at Reykjavik was WORSE. The worst boarding experience I have ever had. NO communication, NO organization. Like a huge aimless cattle call. Started late, no announcements. Huge line where NOBODY knew what was going on. Another veteran traveler stated that in 40 years of constant business travel he had NEVER seen anything worse!! It was the pits!! Plus no food, except for overpriced crappy sandwiches you had to pay for on a transatlantic flight. British Airways had great free food on the flight over."
Pros: "Crew was helpful and competent. Smooth flight and easy security after night of terror attacks in London 03June2017."
Cons: "No entertainment for a 3 hour flight? Not even a free bag of nuts? Free beverage came 1.5 hours after takeoff (several paid cart runs came first). Should've been like other flights where you get a small water bottle upon boarding."
Pros: "The crew seemed nice and efficient."
Cons: "The flight was delayed leaving and the plan was different than they had planned so some of the seat arrangements were different."
Pros: "The seats were comfortable with more leg room than on American airlines--important for me because I'm 6/2". Entertainment system worked very well. Plane had a new feel--clean and classy."
Cons: "I didn't like that food was only available if paid for. I was not aware of this before hand. If one is aware, one can bring one's own food."
Pros: "New planes nice staff"
Cons: "Uncertainty of arrival connection, we have a flight in a month with a tight return schedule. It was disconcerting."
Pros: "Staff was very nice and I loved that I actually didn't' have to pay for luggage. I was also offered a free drink."
Pros: "Entertainer system is nice. Crew is good and attentive."
Cons: "Boarding process is chaotic and communication with passengers is poor. Seats are small. Drink service is ok but not even a small snack is offered - crackers might be nice on a 5 hour flight. Food for purchase was outrageously priced even by airline food standards. Keflavik is a nightmare airport. Too small for the volume of traffic it gets and limited facilities."
Pros: "Good service. Enjoyed free drinks and media. Staff was courteous."
Cons: "Easy flight. Hard to hear boarding announcement and which seats would board first."
Cons: "Small new movie selection. I flew to London in late November and returned in early December. I thought some new movies would be listed in December but that was not the case. Although I have found most Icelanders speak very good English, oddly enough, the accent of the person making the English announcements on the flight made it difficult to understand the statements."
Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "There is only food for purchase on this long flight, and they ran out of vegetarian option before they got to me."
Pros: "The plane made it to the destination."
Cons: "No complimentary snacks. Food for purchase was not good."
Pros: "Excellnt service, fast boarding, great communication"
Cons: "Took a while to take off,"
Pros: "Seat was comfortable, but two more inches of leg room would allow a six-footer like me some wiggle room. Can't imagine someone taller taking these seats."
Cons: "Food selection is very limited, quite expensive, and not that interesting. And no free nibbles."
Pros: "You have to pay for everything on board beyond soft drinks and water. The airport in Reykjavik has great bathrooms, but not much else in the transit area. There aren't even enough seats in the area."
Pros: "I was worried due to the negative reviews about the airline , but the flight was on time, the cabin comfortable, the crew friendly, and the ride was smooth."
Cons: "I didn't like that they didn't serve a meal or man the flight, but that's what you get when flying a low cost carrier. No frills."
Pros: "Seats are comfortable."
Pros: "Variety of entertainment - movies, tv"
Cons: "Comfort of seats were terrible and I am only 5 ft 2 inches. Can't believe you can't even serve full cans of soda and no snacks without charging."
Pros: "The price"
Cons: "Flight delays, chaos in boarding in Iceland. People boarding from rear needing to get to front unable to pass since people boarding from front were trying to get to back. Not organized at all. No warning as to when delay would be over or expected boarding time. No place to sit near gate. Many people on floor. People running up and down isles throughout flight and bumping into other passengers sitting."
Pros: "I liked having the entertainment system."
Cons: "Charging of food."
Cons: "When we arrived at Keflavik airport the terminal was immensely crowded with several flights due to leave the US at once. It was overcrowded to the point of being uncomfortable and there was a 30min+ wait to buy food from the only shop. As a result we did not have time to grab a bite to eat between flights. My partner was subjected to additional TSA checks which I am aware is a random check and a nescessity but due to the amount of flights departing for the US this took an extra hour, and delayed our flight. I'm thankful that Iceland Air didn't leave without us but it was an immensely stressful experience that I don't wish to go through again."
Pros: "Generally well run and a pleasant experience."
Pros: "The legroom space on the plane was good, but it's super tight if there are 3 people in the row."
Cons: "They don't give you any snacks unless you pay for it and there is limited free drinks to choose from. They also didn't offer any in-flight entertainment for a 3 hour flight. They did pass out iPads for those that wanted them but not free internet those that elected to use their own devices. The airport in Reykjavik is set up weird - each gate merges together and they don't load by zone (probably due to lack of space in the terminal). People just push to the gate and it's a mess."
Pros: "Entertainment very good - lots of good movies that I had not seen. I love that there was not an extra charge. The service on the flight was good."
Cons: "The boarding process in Reykjavik was just awful. First we had no warning that Gate D would require such an extensive wait, so we spent too long in terminal eating and then panicked that we might miss our flight. Next there was a problem boarding our plane. There weren't enough buses, so we spent over an hour standing in a cramped line that snaked down the hall in an extremely crowded airport with people trying to squeeze though us. It was really uncomfortable. The worst was the crew waited to process people and send them in to the waiting area until a bus arrived, so this added to the wait time. I think tourism is popular in Iceland now and you all need to figure out how to make your systems better. I loved Iceland but I wold seriously need to think hard before booking another flight with you."
Pros: "the flight attendants were awesome"
Pros: "Made up some time since the flight was delayed."
Cons: "Much longer delay on the next flight to JFK after already having an original delay at Gatwick. Keflavik airport wasn't able to accommodate the number of travelers with delayed flights that day."
Pros: "The child-friendly service is nice as kids get a free meal. The food you can buy is pretty good."
Pros: "Crew was very nice, most of the planes were in great condition, great movie selection."
Cons: "Very confused why there was no food."
Pros: "Flight was fine."
Cons: "Crew was not very friendly."
Cons: "Hi, Pliz sort out the menu,the food was rubbish."
Pros: "It was great."
Cons: "No WiFi."
Cons: "Some form of entertainment"
Cons: "For a major carrier in Europe we expected more. Be Be prepared to pay for food and even a drink on a domestic flight. Seats tiny barely any leg room. Crew members appeared to be having a bad day not many welcoming smiles. I guess if you had to budget just pay use one of the other carriers"
Pros: "I did not"
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "Food& entertainment"
Cons: "Mostly good."
Cons: "Same as above."
Cons: "No complimentary drinks and very tight quarters"

Cons: "same as above"
Pros: "It was short and fine"
Cons: "Screens were difficult to maneuver. In some instances wouldn't open."
Pros: "Not yet done."
Cons: "My American partner's passport expires 2 months after our return to the US. Unfortunately, the French issued a year ago the following rule: to enter France, the foreign passport must not expire at least 3 months after the return date. British Airways let us fly to London, explaining this to us, how it would be on us if there were problems further down, and that we would have to get our luggage in London. We chose to fly thinking it would be OK, we had listened to an online person who had had the same problem and the French later told him they would have let him in, also I am myself a dual citizen of France and the US, plus I am autistic, an invisible disability (in my case) that makes it impossible for me to travel alone. I usually do not even say it since not much is understood -by those who do not have it- on how to accommodate it However in London BA did not allow my partner to go on. Due to the fact yesterday was Easter Monday, the American consulate in London was closed. We have spent the night in a nearby motel and now, the next day, I am waiting alone back at the airport with our 2 large suitcases while my partner is at the American consulate. We are poor, do not have phone, currency or charger for England, and I do not do well with stress, so it is difficult. Now we cannot easily reach one another. We hope to be able to fly on a standby basis (that's what BA told us we could hopefully do) later today. Sorry for this long letter, I hope it does not bore whoever reads it (if it is even read :). Anne-Laure"

Pros: "We made it to our destination."
Cons: "The airline misplaced our stroller and one of our cases. We felt abandoned."
Cons: "Took 4 hours to get through jfk on arrival. Lost my bag which took 2 days to arrive at my home."
Pros: "I don't think there is anything more I could ask of an airline."
Cons: "At this point, there was nothing not to like."
Cons: "Could not check in advance. At least this was not clear to me from the email notification."
Pros: "Was on time"
Pros: "British Airways really surprised me by offering a free sandwich and dessert with a beverage: outstanding!"
Cons: "El dia 27/marzo/16 volamos mi esposa, 4 hijos y yo de Madrid a Londres vuelo # 459, el cual llego tarde y perdimos la conexión del vuelo DIRECTO a San Diego # 273, nos mandaron vía Chicago y volvimos a perder la conexión a San Diego por pura lentitud del personal de British, teniendo que dormir en Chicago, nos dieron hospedaje y 100 dlls para cenar para 6 personas (gaste lo doble). Al día siguiente, estuve cerca de 90 minutos batallando para que me imprimieran los pases de abordar porque supuestamente British no había pagado los boletos a American Airlines. Les pido me recompensen con boletos redondos por todas estos inconvenientes. Saludos y gracias, Fernando Vizcarra"

Pros: "We didn’t crash"
Cons: "No entertainment"
Pros: "same as above"
Pros: "Friendly staff as always, and more leg room than most budget carriers"
Cons: "They announced a 10 minute delay, which lasted for two hours without passengers getting any information, and had to take the bus a long way as the plane had somehow ended up at the other side of the airport. Then once boarded, we sat on the tarmac for at least 30 minutes."
Pros: "New Boeing Dreamliner plane was very comfortable. We successfully bid for an upgrade which was of course spacious. Most food and drink was complimentary."
Cons: "The movie selection was limited. If there was on board music I couldn’t find it. There are usb and power points so you can bring your own though. It was awkward to eat out of the meal boxes with little plastic cutlery."
Pros: "Excellent value flight to Seattle. Very helpful at check in. Brilliant plane."
Cons: "We choose not to pre-book seats or order meals as we felt both were expensive options."
Pros: "Nice and ckean airplane. Smooth travel"
Cons: "We didn't know our 11 hour flight didn't have food. And then when we try to order food, on the menu it's all just sandwiches. There's no option for hot food."
Pros: "Nice new planes"
Cons: "The food wasn’t great"
Pros: "Service and overall experience was outstanding."
Cons: "Only graded one star for last two as short ball NA"
Pros: "Plenty of lavatories"
Cons: "Food cost extra and it was horrible"
Cons: "I've been traveling to Europe and back for 40 years+. This is the first time I have ever had to weigh in my pocketbook along with my carry-on bag - that's outrageous!!! I realize that you are a discount carrier, and one has to pay for luggage, but this is ridiculous!!! You go to the extreme, and a women's pocketbook should not have to be added to the scale along with any other carry-on bags for a total weight of 10 Kil. That's extreme and very miserly in my opinion and not a positive refection on your airline!"
Pros: "The boarding was stress-free and the leg room was excellent"
Cons: "Delayed by over 3 hours."
Pros: "I recieved emails informing me of possible disruption to travel to and from airport ie road congestion & weather conditions and recommendations to avoid delays which I thought was a very helpful service."
Cons: "We didn't pre order food but understood snacks could be ordered during flight. The sandwiches had all sold soon after we departed New York. We were lucky enough to buy the last fruit salad. We had nothing else to eat for the entire journey. We booked hand luggage only. Obtaining a boarding pass electronically for myself and my partner was impossible. On the fourth attempt I booked myself in individually and was successfully. I then booked in my partner successfully.We tried to go through departures armed with our boarding pass but we're refused entry. We were redirected back to Norwegian main check in to obtain a happy face stamp on our boarding pass which is obtained after the weight of the luggage has been checked. Unfortunately this means that instead of going straight through departures with hand luggage only we had to go to the main Check in anyway. I agree with checking weight of hand luggage but the process could be improved greatly."
Pros: "Quick flight. Good entertainment Quite spacious Quick boarding."
Cons: "Plane was cold. Not including food Staff aren’t as friendly as other airlines experienced."
Pros: "Modern newish plane & generally a good flight with minimal air disturbance"
Cons: "Over an hour delay before taking off although we landed only 35 minutes late. Would have thought some free drinks might have been served given length of the flight even if it is a budget airline. Room between seats is a bit tight."
Pros: "Economy Seats were comfortable"
Cons: "Information about system for ordering food was very problematic. I was not informed that I needed to order food 3 online days in advance. I tried to order it while checking in online because I realised only at that point that it was likely I would have to order in advance...I was charged but did not receive what I ordered. One crew member was nice, the others were not. When checking in at the airport the staff desk attendant was very rude. Too many hidden costs. Paying for extras like food and luggage does not make the price economical."
Pros: "Entertainment was good, nice planes."
Cons: "Not knowing about no food provided but had to buy and book meals 72 hours in advance, which I couldn't do, as it was last minute. No blankets or pillows were provided - had to buy a blanket. No headsets were available, which also had to be purchased, but received text notification to bring my own."
Pros: "The flight itself was really good, smooth and easy. The staff were also very helpful. Good value for money"
Cons: "The plane hadn't been cleaned properly, there was still food in the pocket in my seat from the flight before. And they didn't bring the trash through nearly often enough which resulted in passengers leaving wrappers and cups on the floor. We were 30 min delayed as well."
Pros: "It was pretty cheap to travel but came with a lot of restrictions"
Cons: "Baggage allowances where very restricted and no headsets on airplane. Good choices where bad and had to pay for snacks and coffee."
Pros: "My seat was comfortable,bathrooms were clean."
Cons: "Some not all of the staff was a tad bit cooler in demanor than was needed. Too much movement by other passengers."
Cons: "Boarding staff a bit unwelcoming"
Pros: "Just all in all, a really decent flight. The airplane was clean and tidy, staff were polite and I was really impressed with the free wifi. The flight was comfortable and I was able to get a little power nap in before we landed!"
Pros: "I had a window seat..."
Cons: "Very confused as to why I was wasn’t told that I needed to pre order my meal.. On my way to London I got a meal included and on the way back I didn’t even get a bottle of water! Awful awful experience and will never be flying Norwegian again. , no matter what the price is!"
Pros: "The flight was on a nice modern 767, clean and I was lucky as a tall person I had no one next to me. So I was relatively comfortable. Tickets for a flight from London to JFK were very cheap. USB port to keep phone charged was nice, but whats the point with no WiFi available?"
Cons: "I felt this was a bait and switch offer. Cheap price offered, but no checked in baggage included nor any food and drinks or snacks. NOTHING. Flight attendants basically ignore you the whole flight unless you purchase on the flight or in advance. Very poor choice of movies, all old movies. And no WiFi whatsoever. All of these are major inclusions on trans-Atlantic flights, and were not visible when purchasing this flight. I thought it sounded too good to be true. To be honest, if this were all included up front, I couldve brought on-board food and drink for the flight. I dont like being nickel and dimed on everything. Charging over $50 for a checked in bag is ridiculous. At least if it were for $25 like every other flight, I wouldnt of minded."
Pros: "Norwegian is bare bones, but this flight on the Dreamliner is very comfortable. It ‘helped’ that the delay meant lots of people cancelled and there was a lot of spare space on board."
Cons: "It’s a long flight with no drinks... but with Norwegian you know what you sign up for! Water is $3. The 5 hour delay left something to be desired, but Norwegian texted me early so I knew not to head to the airport."
Pros: "Price of the ticket was good Modern plane Clean plane Friendly cabin crew"
Cons: "The flight was full The seats in economy were small"
Pros: "Nothing particularly special."
Cons: "Arrived 4 hours delayed, and they always say due to weather to rid of any responsibilities. Flight had no food and had some insane safety warnings saying gathering in groups was not allowed. That's the most big brother thing I've heard in an airplane."
Pros: "Dreamliner was a very good place to be for seven hours. As budget airlines go Norwegian are the best we've used, amazing value to cross the atlantic."
Cons: "Film selection wasn't the best, but you can't have it all."
Pros: "Friendly Crew members"
Cons: "Not enough food choices. Limited entertainment."
Pros: "Booked this as was going to Denver direct and ESD a fair price. Generally well looked after."
Cons: "Not made clear that this trip did not include food unless purchased separately but spotted It day before so purchased our own to take on board. Was actually better as we had what we wanted and most importantly could eat/sleep when it suited us. Not offered any drink not even water but had our own. Nearly slipped up with baggage as did not purchase bags coming back as missed the point while booking. How many people book return flights and don't bring bags back? Should have been an 'are you sure' check."
Pros: "Very good seats and a new plane for good value."
Cons: "Entertainment system didn't work, ordering system didn't work. When my kid got a black eye from the spring-loaded entertainment system they didn't even have a first aid kit on board with a cold compress--shocking."
Pros: "Smooth boarding and helpful staff."
Cons: "Did not know that I would need to have my own headphones. Purchased rather poor sound experience headphones. Could not make my meal request change as vegetarian. Did not see that even when I booked the flight. Passengers should take their own light snacks and drinks after security."
Pros: "Bigger windows, better storage, and the cabin pressure meant no jet lag. Cabin attendants were great. Amazing!"
Cons: "Other passengers: I can't believe how rude people are these days. No fault of Norwegian, though!"
Pros: "Staff were helpful and friendly :)"
Cons: "No pillow or cover supplied. Food was an additional charge :("
Cons: "Late departure and terrible customs in Oakland."
Pros: "The boarding process with pretty seamless."
Cons: "No blanket or pillow provided for an 11 hour flight? No headset to watch entertainment? Why don't seats in front of toilets adjust but the ones in front do..thus squashing us in even further?! Why must we pay extra for drinks or snacks? Remember it's an 11 hour flight, fully paid for.."
Cons: "They did not have the vegetarian meal that I Pre ordered and paid for. I was very disappointed."
Cons: "Seat space"
Pros: "For about half of the primary overseas carriers, I had a very comfy seat on a new 787 Dreamliner. Amazing!"
Pros: "The Dreamliner was lovely, seats comfortable with enough space The entertainment system was good, easy to use but USA biased of course"
Cons: "My expectations were high! So maybe that's why I am so disappointed. Should have been warned as the app is terrible, hardly ever works. OK we were delayed an hour, it happens. The food and drink service was awful. So very average hot meal 2 hours into the flight. Hardly "nice and tasty". If you're going to do the talk you got to deliver. Then nothing for 7 hours! Even trying to get water was not easy. I paid £50 for a bag and this terrible service. We get to Oakland and there's nowhere to dock! We wait 40 mi ms just to get out. More problems at Immigration There's no other flights but it takes over 2 hours go get through. This plane does this flight 4 times a week. Get it sorted. Could have been great. Couldn't recommend this service"
Pros: "Boarding by seat number made boarding go smooth"
Pros: "Comfortable and easy."
Pros: "The 787 dreamlike is great"
Pros: "On time and very nice attendants very clean cabins"
Pros: "Crew were friendly"
Cons: "My sons car seat was lost in transit therefore didn’t have any seat for him to sit in once landed at Inverness Airport."
Cons: "Delayed to and from London..."
Cons: "The plain didnt leave because the food didnt arrive. We waited 3 hours! Very bad!"
Pros: "I liked that we made it safely. That’s about it."
Cons: "No delays, more information, good communication and some compensating!"
Pros: "EasyJet no frills flight as usual."
Cons: "Flight was delayed by 20mins takeoff to landing"
Pros: "Easy ticketing and check-in, boarding was quick and efficient, flight arrived earlier"
Cons: "Seat a bit cramped and it was a bit hot on-flight"
Pros: "On time and nice staff"
Cons: "No vegan options on menu other than crisps......."
Pros: "The cabin crew were friendly and it was a comfortable flight"
Cons: "The staff at luggage drop weren’t particularly friendly and we were only given half an hour’s notice of the gate which wasn’t long enough"
Pros: "Friendly competent staff."
Cons: "Lack of space between the seats."
Pros: "Quick flight."
Cons: "They threw a black man off the flight for being rude. He wasnt being rude. He was travelling with gf for romantic weekend in Amsterdam. Despite quite a few passangers speaking sensibly on his behalf and despite him apoligising to keep himself on flight. Clear racism!!!!"
Cons: "Lady at the counter was absolutely rude and digusting. She had no manners and customer service at all. She was screaming at people to place everything in one bag, instead of saying it calmly. Not the best start of your holidays at 6am."
Pros: "Speed of getting to the destination"
Cons: "2 hours delay"
Pros: "Flight took off slightly late but landed at PMI roughly on time. I had the worst seat on the aircraft according to seat guru 31D which is the last row by the back door. But being the NEO 320 the seat was extremely comfortable and for someone who doesn't sleep on flights I nearly nodded off a few times. Knee room was ok but overall the seat was very comfortable and I could have easily spent a few more hours in that seat."
Cons: "Only problem was that the service trolley started at the front of the plane and it took a fair amount of time before it reached the last row, and being a fairly short flight by the time we finished our drinks the seat belt lights came on for landing."
Pros: "Crew, staff,"
Cons: "We were delayed 50 minutes and the seats are uncomfy with no legroom. It is quite squashed and makes it worse when people put their seat back in front of you even though there are spare seats throughout the rest of the plane."
Pros: "Arrived 10 minutes early at the stand. The seat next to me was empty."
Cons: "I have getting a bus from the plane to immigration. This seems to be the case at Zürich with Easy jet flights"
Pros: "In flight crew were great."
Cons: "Seems like the consensus. Nice in flight crew, very rude check in crew. One worker at check in went out of her way to make me pay for a bag that the other lady said would be fine. I agreed to pay and she still tried to shame me. Kind of sad if that is where she finds enjoyment."
Pros: "Staff on the plane, views of Switzerland."
Cons: "Flight was delayed twice, but we were at the boarding gate when found out, then given an incorrect time which was brought forward later. It was all confusing"
Cons: "Delayed nearly two hours."
Cons: "staff attitude bad and poor instruction, cant check in and waste of money!"
Cons: "They didn't inform me to put stomp at customs desk"
Pros: "On time no problems at all"
Cons: "Took way to long to be served a drink and then had to rush my drink before landing"
Pros: "Smooth take-off and landing, no major issues on the flight to report."
Cons: "We were taken by coach to a plane bound for Paris and were than told to disembark, to be taken to the correct plane for Palma! In the process a mother and her son that were left on the wrong plane had to be collected, before we could take off, which delayed the flight by 45 minutes."
Cons: "What I do not like is that EasyJet always run late at least to Paris Charles De Gaulle You borrow steal and use other planes to plug holes created by poor planning or at least that is how it appears. Guessing that explains the recent press."
Pros: "The hot tea"
Cons: "The noisy children they were not controlled by there perants"
Pros: "Nice and helpful crews"
Pros: "left and landed on time"
Cons: "Every thing"
Cons: "The gate was changed and we didn't know it and had to go a long way from one gate to another."
Cons: "You broke my suitcase.and no one helped me in the airport. Please Contect me +972523188998"
Pros: "All of it"
Pros: "Service from everyone was great"
Pros: "Fast processing of all baggage - automated drop off points at Gatwick North"
Pros: "Was it a new plane? Seemed to be quite roomy for an Easyjet flight. Very quick security at Luton!"
Cons: "Boarding seemed really staggered instead of free flowing.like other flights, that is, a few people for on, it looked like it.was going to be a quiet flight, then a few more people for on, then heaps of people got on really late, so then there were problems with overhead space and people couldn't get past one another in the aisle... It was a bit of a shambles. Very slow passport control in Stockholm."
Pros: "Left on time, landed early. Quick boarding, quick disembarking."
Cons: "Most passengers had carry on put in the hold but there ended up being lots of room in the overhead lockers."
Cons: "The trolley I came with to UK was fine, but back to tlv they decided to charge me 45 pounds"
Cons: "We were in the 11th row but they asked us to board from the back so we were stuck trying to get past everyone who was trying to get to the back of the plane...doesn't make sense and creates bad traffic"
Cons: "Luton airport is undergoing renovation at the moment. It resembles more of a crowded bus station that an international airport. Very little seating and amenities. Worse still flight was delayed by an hour, another hour spent in this awful airport. We were called to gate 30 minutes before boarding and again very small waiting area with about 10 seats. Very uncomfortable journey"
Pros: "It took off on time."
Cons: "The other passengers!"
Pros: "on time, not overcrowded"
Cons: "Delayed by 2h30"
Pros: "thank you"
Cons: "Boarding in Amsterdam was delayed and information was not available about it. The boarding gates did not have facilities for handicapped people on wheelchairs, or people with children in pushchairs, who had to carry them down through all the stairs to the boarding gate and then wait. They should be told in advance of those limitations and not allowed to take the pushchairs on the plane, I think."
Cons: "Was a delay caused by a false alarm! Annoying that I got up at 4 to wait around for 2 hours"
Pros: "Everything went well."
Cons: "No problems."
Pros: "The best part of the whole experience was arriving at the destination. Good to keep my expectations grounded."
Cons: "I was not liking the drive to the airport, the airport, the inside of the airport, Frankie and bennys (bleurgh), the delay, the lack of space, lack of air, lack of seats, lack of information blah blah blah etc The flight was uneventful once it was finally in progress but No mention of compensation vouchers for the 3 hour delay or my free phonecall. Why is it accepted that this service is so normal. Those flights were expensive because we didn't want to fly late evening time. Me and my kids had a horrendous afternoon and evening and night topped off with no sick bags on the plane for the vomiting child that should have been in bed 3 hours earlier. Thanks once again easy jet but a special thanks to Luton airport. Wow and wow"
Cons: "could not add hold baggage by internet. had to pay high fee at chech in stall."
