FLight was late departure and arrival. Entertainment system did not work. Wifi did not work. Food was edible, but just so.
The flight actually left early and arrived 15 mins ahead of schedule in Calgary!
The Gate (26C) at LaGuardia was outside. We had to walk in 30 Degree Farenheit weather outside and wait to be checked in. This was not a Delta policy, but the LaGuardia Airport is undergoing renovations. An Airport Shuttle to the plane would have been so much better!
The airport was chaos. TSA was a massive line and took forever. Everyone thought they would miss their flights
So, let's start with the good. Excellent variety of entertainment, nice staff & the snacks decent enough. Now the bad, the seats were the most uncomfortable seats I think I have ever personally had to sit in. The non-existent leg room is another issue. The last part can we get the people on & off the plane a bit faster. I had this elderly gentleman who was attempting to get his luggage out of the overhead bin about 6 people in front of me when trying to get off the plane that was having trouble no crew member and unfortunately no one on the plane stepped up to help him so we all had to wait to get off the plane until I pushed my way past the people standing there to help the guy. This should be something the flight attendants should help with to move the process along. The final thing, REMOVE THE STUPID MASKS. The flight attendants are sitting around in the back during the flight no mask on talking and chit chatting, being closer then 6 feet. You must see the irony in this already. Let people who want to be scared be scared and wear a mask and let people who have an immune system not wear a mask. Its over and done with. We need to move on.
Boarding process was disjointed and weird. Understaffed desk at gate and resulting overwhelm precluded any boarding announcements! Flight itself was fine, with good crew and adequate service. On time with no major delays.
No food and no entertainment
Pros: "Never went on the flight."
Cons: "Awful customer service"

Pros: "crew was friendly"
Pros: "Was upgraded to Comfort Plus after they had no seat for me on the plane"
Cons: "We booked with Virgin however flew with Delta and we were not alerted to this. We booked with Virgin for a reason. They also did not have seats for me when I went to check in on both flights and I had to negotiate seats before boarding. Very disappointing."
Cons: "Seat assignment for me and my traveling companion was done at gate. We had to sit in 2 different rows."
Pros: "quick and efficient"
Cons: "I know it's not the airline's fault, but we were delayed for weather. Also seats do no recline and there is no entertainment."

Pros: "Empty seats, room to spread out"
Pros: "I like Delta's onboard entertainment, Delta Studio. I also like that I can use wifi messaging onboard. The flight attendants did an excellent job as usual. I was in First Class so that was nice. I like the ice cream for dessert. I like the snack variety in First Class."
Cons: "For first class the seat pitch is not great. I had a steak, it was dry. The rest of the meal was OK."
Pros: "The seats"
Cons: "We purchased tickets together and our seats were not together when we checked in. We had one small roller bag for the two of us and we ended up having to gate check it along with 3 other people and then there was clearly enough room for it once we were boarded."
Pros: "Friendly staff, good service in First Class. Had the side with only one seat -- nice to have no neighbors."
Pros: "Entertainment is pretty good on Delta."
Cons: "They were delayed and we almost missed our connecting flight."
Pros: "The flight attendants were very nice and the boarding crew. From the time I walked up to the counter at LGA to the time I exited the plane in CLT, I was treated so kindly and with such respect. Kudos to the Delta Crew."
Cons: "The FLIGHT!!!!! There were delays. Scheduled take of time was 6:59 PM. We took off at 735 PM. Once I was on the plane, I started kicking myself in the you know what because I knew immediately I was scammed. I had purchased a 1st Class ticket for $400+, only to find that my comfort would be the equivalent of that if I purchased a ticket in economy. My long legs would still be cramped. For the past few years, I have been purchasing 1st class for it's spaciousness. On this flight, on the RCJ700, I did not fly comfortably. The space was very tight, and I was able to stretch my legs as if I sat in economy. This was by far, my most uncomfortable flight ever. SMH; A WASTE OF MY HARD EARNED MONEY!!!!!"
Pros: "The flight was great, the food really tasty and really nice plane."
Cons: "Standing in line for 5 hours without knowing what I'll be able to do. My entire body still hurts!"
Pros: "Larger seats"
Cons: "The seats are too small."
Pros: "Nice and attentive staff, smooth on and off."

Cons: "No TV behind seat. Boarding was a bit messy"
Pros: "This was a redeye flight that was very smooth."
Cons: "I had an aisle seat and a male flight attendant kept going up and down the aisle bumping my shoulder. If I were a big person I could understand the bumping. He was wider than the aisle. At last count he bumped me 7 times while I was trying to get some sleep on this 5 hour redeye flight. I was going to confront him on his next trip but finally fell asleep before then."
Pros: "I liked everything."
Cons: "We were delayed one hour leaving Salt Lake due to mechanical failure. Otherwise, everything was great"

Cons: "Nothing was offered, my bag was checked at the door but no big deal"
Pros: "On time...great service!"
Cons: "Seats were a bit narrow."
Pros: "Whoever making announcements from the cockpit seemed excited to be going to the Bahamas. Made the short trip from Atlanta very light hearted."
Pros: "The plane wasn't ice cold, which was a nice change."
Cons: "I couldn't close my air vent unless I wanted to hear a nice whistling sound for the duration of the flight. So I just left it open, no big deal."
Cons: "Considering that we’re in the middle of a pandemic no LH ground staff at Heathrow Airport was leading by example wearing protective equipment such as mask or gloves. Further, I found it inexplicably that almost every seat was taken on this flight. If LH knows that the flight is booked close to capacity I would have expected they do their part and due diligence by swapping to a bigger aircraft to help protect people and their customers, it’s not that they wouldn’t have other aircrafts grounded and ready to go... A reduced beverage service is all you can do, really? LH - very disappointing once again"
Pros: "Quick, comfortable and easy"
Cons: "Boarding was a bit clunky"
Cons: "I missed my connecting flight because my flight was late. I had to get to my destination for a wedding."
Pros: "Plane was super nice and new and crew was great!"
Pros: "None of the above. I actually liked nothing about this trip. Took off at London in time for Frankfurt, arrived early, but missed the connection to Tel Aviv. So I had to be routed to Munich to catch a 10:30 pm flight, which arrives at 3 am Sunday. So I wasted the entire day, starved, exhausted."
Cons: "Proper connection time. I lost the entire day, and now have to get a cab for $100 instead of my colleague meeting me. 3 am is impossible. And I am still not in Tel Aviv."
Pros: "Lots of entertainment from music to podcasts to movies and tv. Food was good!"
Cons: "The flight was quite cold! More teas and coffee instead of cold drinks. Couldn’t tell if there was WiFi or not :/"
Cons: "Delayed flight - but it’s ok since I got to my final destination safely. It wasn’t a very long delay."
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."
Pros: "Flight crew made up time to arrive on time despite late arrival. They are pretty amazing - they got a plane hundreds of miles in the same time it took the ground crew to get my bag from the plane to the baggage claim."
Cons: "Frankfurt is just an awful airport. Too many landings and not enough infrastructure. Also tired of planes having to park thousands of yards from the terminal. The time to get the bag is as long as the flight. Each about 55 minutes. There is very little about German efficiency here."
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"
Cons: "Lufthansa's narrowbodies have one of the most uncomfortable seats in the sky. These slimline seats are built with a central beam running vertically along the midline of the seat, making it very uncomfortable with your spine."
Pros: "The food out of everything"
Cons: "Customer service , the air craft , the blankets"
Pros: "Crew and service was amazing"
Cons: "No entertainment food Horrible"
Cons: "Online check-in did not work. When I checked in at the airport, I received only a middle seat."

Cons: "Punctuality. I fly lufthansa twice a week and I have yet to fly on time. There are always a delay."
Cons: "Cancelled flight and transferring me on turkish airlines again the flight was delayed over three hours.,obviously we have missed our connection flight to Beirut and now waiting in front the hotel desk because the first flight to Beirut is 12:25 pm , I have lost 2 days from my holiday,I'm very tired and upset, I will never use kayak ever again and I will tell all my friends and family to avoid it."
Cons: "The flight was delayed . When we arrived in Frankfurt, there was a quie of 200m . After waiting 10 minutes, they asked us to go to other passport control . We had to walk onother 10 minutes to get there ."
Cons: "Not entertainment at all"
Pros: "The boarding process was smooth, take off delayed by just over an hour but the Crew were exceptional with providing updates and bringing around refreshments whilst we waited."
Cons: "Seats were a little uncomfortable but outside that not much I can fault the airline for."
Cons: "I didn’t like it because when I asked for a big water bottle, they refused to gove it to me while I am sick and suffer dry throat. The space is rather small. If you are 5ft 5 and above person, I honestly would suggest you buy extra legroom for comfortable purposes. Also, there is like 1 restroom on the whole plane and if you sot at the end, you are screw. Lets not forget that they delayed our flights like 4 hours and only gave us 1 voucher for snack. I don’t expect the experience will be fancy but this is a total disappointment!"
Cons: "It took ages to go through the security check, although I have mentioned that I have a flight connection that is due to leave nobody gave a s..t, so I missed my flight. Now I’m waiting at the airport"
Cons: "Cancelled then delayed then had to stay in Frankfurt and was a day late"
Pros: "The environment was very nice. Relaxed and roomy"
Pros: "The crew were very helpful and friendly"
Cons: "The flight was delayed"
Cons: "Very very long walk plus train to baggage reclaim at Munich"
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: "It’s nice that Lufthansa still gives food onboard"
Cons: "My Lufthansa flight left with 1hour delay"
Pros: "Smooth process. Regular updates."
Cons: "Late departure."
Pros: "Fast-track security, Lufthansa lounge in Heathrow T2 was fabulous, with incredibly attentive staff, flight stewards were extremely polite and also attentive. Great in flight snack and drinks. A real pleasure."
Cons: "The long walk at Frankfurt - but you can't blame the airline for the place the plane docks at."
Pros: "Friendly helpful staff."
Pros: "I arrived at the airport early and the check in staff offered an earlier flight so I wouldn't miss my connection. Crew was courteous and the sandwich on board was quite good"
Cons: "Slim seats very uncomfortable and legroom too little"
Pros: "I upgraded to the premium food package for a small price. It was delicious and filling."
Cons: "The quality of the sound from the earphones was not very good so that made the movies less enjoyable."
Pros: "The food and drinks was very good."
Cons: "The flight was late."
Pros: "Easy check-in and helpful staff. I would absolutely fly with Lufthansa again"
Pros: "It was good the checking desk person was polite and done her best to put get me on to British Airways flight to get to my destination on the same day."
Cons: "But we waited tilll 12.30pm still flight took off at 14.00 and arrive in Dubai at 23.50pm instead of 22.30pm person went home who suppose to pick me up. I got to the place I was staying at 01.39am which was very uncomfortable. I will never fly again with Lufthansa Airline it use to like British Airways but definitely they have lost the customer touch."
Pros: "Free refreshments. Funny cabin crew!"
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: "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: "The flight itself was fine."
Cons: "Getting to LHR early for. 6:30 am flight was no use since they don't have any departing flights between 11pm and 6 am. So we were stuck in the lobby for hours until ticket agents arrived at 4 am. There was one open coffee shop however. Then we waited for security to arrive at about 4:30 am to get through and it was quite a slow shake down. One through there were no restaurants open until 5-5:30 am. The flight itself was fine. Facilities at Frankfurt were minimal with toilets offering only one stall each. While standing in the long queue a lady and her young daughter were rudely ushered out by the male custodian for cleaning, and then it could not be used for another 10-15 minutes."
Pros: "Even on such a short flight I got a sandwich. It was a salmon sandwich which I never had on any other flights. They usually serve cheese or ham or chicken in the Middle East. It was nice to have something different and nutritious."
Pros: "The crew and in flight experience were excellent."
Cons: "Terminal procedures, particularly a tarmac delay and understaffed customs and security personnel, jeopardized my London Heathrow connection in spite of the 80 minute layover. Itineraries with less than a two-hour connection should be discontinued as a fraudulent misrepresentation of the passenger's likely success. I will never fly through Heathrow again."
Cons: "Lufthansa airline has no intention to help their passengers and happily see their passengers suffer from the airline's mistakes"
Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "In seat entertainment, better food."
Pros: "Staff was friendly. They fixed my flight from Frankfurt to Denver and got me an aisle seat."
Cons: "Leaving late from BOTH legs on the way to England. :-( Being told in email that I was going to have an aisle seat on the flight from Frankfurt to Denver, but then on the day I was told I wouldn't."
Pros: "Heathrow had a lot to offer between flights. Our gate was in the middle of everything."
Cons: "We were late boarding, which left very little time to connect with my next flight in Frankfurt."
Cons: "I did the email check in. When I arrive at the airport, I asked for customer service to print the boarding passes. They changed my seat assignment which not asked. This caused some confusion when we boarded."
Pros: "I loved how friendly the airline attendants were."
Cons: "I didn't like how in the Munich airport I couldn't find a place to plug my phone in. they should make those more accessible"
Pros: "Crew was excellent - friendly and helpful"
Cons: "Seats in economy too cramped - I paid extra for next seat up from basic economy which covered our baggage but, for some reason, not seats with more leg room."
Pros: "The crew was friendly, the food delicious, and the plane itself in highest quality and state-of-the-art."
Pros: "Boarding and crew great!"
Cons: "Seats extremely narrow"
Pros: "Crew were super friendly and helpful. Food was delicious, comfortable seats, great selection of entertainment."
Cons: "Cheaper baggage rates"
Pros: "Crew was nice"
Cons: "Screens have poor color quality Seat too small Legroom cut into by electronics box Row 45 next to bathroom and no windows"
Cons: "Overall, I am disappointed in Kayak for listing my round trip flight as KLM, when in actuality, only one short connection of this flight was actually KLM. My itinerary said KLM all over it, but in the fine print it said "operated by Delta." This is dishonest and misleading."
Pros: "Comfy, nice crew, attentive."
Pros: "It was empty so we were told we could move around in the empty seats"
Cons: "Food was basically carbs, carbs and more carbs (especially if vegetarian). Some diversity, please. Staff forgot requests on a couple of occasions (Economy Delight cabin)."
Pros: "The flight was so delayed I missed my connecting flight to jfk."
Cons: "The flight was so delayed I missed my connecting flight to jfk."
Pros: "The flight crew was phenomenal, especially Daniella. Somehow we wound up with seats right next to the bathroom door, which would have been a pretty uncomfortable situation for a variety of reasons, but the flight wasn't full, and she helped us find a suitable place to sit. Also, my wife and I usually take our tea with honey vs. milk and sugar. Even though honey is usually one of the options for tea, she found a way to accommodate our request. The lunch meals were the best I can remember in a long time on an airline flight. They might have been the best I've ever had. The chicken curry was authentic, flavorful and spicy. Frankly my outbound flight had problems. My luggage got damaged. The transfer experience in Manchester left a LOT to be desired. I wasn't planning to use Virgin Atlantic again, but this flight crew (Daniella especially) redeemed Virgin Atlantic. They were attentive, pleasant, diligent."
Cons: "Only thing I didn't like about this flight was the boarding area. Once you get into that the area, you don't really have access to appetizing food (only vending machines) or even restrooms. That's one thing that could be improved."
Cons: "Missed connection to SFO"
Pros: "Great movie selection"
Cons: "They need softer seats...had to stand half the time"
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: "Good Service. Great attitude of flight attendants..early arrival. smooth flight."
Cons: "despite purchasing 'extra legroom' seats, it was still very, very crowded and tight."
Pros: "Friendly cabin crew, excellent food and drinks. Very happy with the service we received"
Cons: "We haven’t possiblyty to check in online. Crew smell was terrible, ladies used some perfume, some people was allergic to it"
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: "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: "Amazing food and drinks, and to top it off we were served a frozen ice cream treat during our flight."
Pros: "I was selected for additional screening at the gate. I have no problem with this at all. From the start I told them I am traveling with my fiancee. They tried to hold me back in a separate area after the screening and I once again told them my fiancee was waiting for me. One staff memeber walked with me half way back to get her and then disappeared. By the time I found her and came back, the staff memeber was no where to be found. Now we had lost are spot in the line and had to go to the back of the line. We spoke to 3 different staff people about what was going on and everyone said, oh the guy over there will help you. But no one did. The staff had No idea how to run a security check or handle paople. There was No working wifi! There was no tvs in the seats, only the old style in the aisle. The staff told me the plan was going to retire at the end of the month. The food was more for animals then for humans! We got updates by txt 10 mins before the staff updated the gate on our flight out from SFO. I have traveled all over the world with a lot of airlines and Never had such a poor service, but what is it to expect. It was United after all!"
Cons: "Refund of the whole flight."
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+."
Pros: "I wish I knew the name of the crew on this flight so that credit is given where it's due. A female steward was incredibly kind to me. She allowed me space to cry in the back of the aircraft, and also gave me her personal tissues. Her care is the only reason I'd give this flight an 'okay.'"
Cons: "Unlike the incredibly kind woman, another woman on the crew was incredibly rude to me and to other passengers on the plane. She was very obviously annoyed with nearly everything on that flight. The restrooms were beyond disgusting. I have never flown on a flight with a restroom that awful; it smelled horrible and was filthy. It was reminiscent of a portable outhouse, no exaggeration. The pillow on my seat had makeup on it."
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: "On time, comfortable (for Economy), friendly crew. Nine hour flight didn't feel that long."
Cons: "Entertainment system in our seats seemed pretty beat up. On one there was no sound, on the other not all the buttons on the control would respond when you pressed them."
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."
Pros: "comfort, entertainment, food"
Pros: "There are lots of relatively new movies to choose from."
Cons: "The complimentary headset breaks easily. Tray table was broken and they can't fix it. Very small bathrooms, knees almost touch the door when sitting down. Food selection for dinner ran out quickly, resulting in only 2 choices and one is hot spicy, so basically only one choice. All beverages are given out in small cups, even water is given out in small cups increments (finish in one gulp), they don't even give out small bottles of water. No complimentary packet (eye shades, socks etc.) , not even a barf bag for collecting trash."
Pros: "Staff was friendly and welcoming."
Cons: "There was nothing not to like."
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."
Pros: "Not much not to like about this experience except for cramped seating in coach."
Cons: "My video monitor didn't work so I couldn't watch movies, asked the crew twice to help and they never did. Then to top off a terrible 10 hour flight with no entertainment, my bag never made it. Worst experience ever"
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: "Entertainment was okay, flight crew was nice"
Cons: "After checking in my wife and I were in separate seats. I was then unable to change my seat after check in. After calling the helpline I was informed that it is impossible to change the seat after checking in until I am at the airport. No other airline has such an obscure, in efficient rule. Virgin takes pride in being a step above their competition - I didn't see it. I have flown international on Delta, American Airlines, British Airlines, United, and others and any difference in the experience was negligible."
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"
Cons: "Seats uncomfortable and leg room very tight . Didn't sleep well."
Pros: "Everything except the seating - far too cramped now"
Cons: "Seating! Seats getting ridiculously tight"
Pros: "Every single aspect of this international flight was outstanding from check-in, customer service, the equipment, the meals, in-flight entertainment, etc. There is nothing I could suggest to improve this wonderful experience. Highly recommended!"
The flight was delayed at least one hour. The bathroom inside the aircraft was really dirty. On the other hand the cabin crew was really nice.
Delays. Endless walking at Schiphol, most exits closed. No staff or signs.
New 737 and seats too confining
Pros: "The crew is excellent but the seats are not comfortable enough. There should be a way to balance money and comfort,not just placing people in seats they do not fit into"

Pros: "MCR airport Mert & Greet parking was smooth and efficient."
Cons: "Flight was delayed 2 hours due to bad weather. Additional baggage payment to Air Baltic did not show up on the KLM system and we had to pay again. Nowhere to address this with Air Baltic even in Tallin. Handlers seem uninterested and refer us to ‘the website to address the issue.....’"
Pros: "Nice crew pilot food and beverage"
Cons: "No wifi"
Cons: "Flight was delayed, landing at vce took an additional 10 minutes due to no one at the jet way. Luggage service was very slow"
Cons: "Check in at Berlin was extremly slow. Staff was very unprofessional and not very friendly."

Cons: "Nil to complain."
Cons: "Headset jack only worked if the headset plug was in EXACTLY the right spot."
Cons: "Crowded seating, 20-year old video system, headphones that did not match the two-jack system, lackluster service in flight. Generally my experience with KLM has been good, but this was well below average."
Cons: "At some point the luggage was lost. here."
Pros: "Boarding was a breeze and the staff were lovely. Online check was very simple and easy to navigate."
Cons: "The amount of extras you have to click no to while checking in online."

Cons: "Long stop over at Schiphol. Too Long!!!!"
Cons: "Terrible service in flight and customer service wise .. app functionality was below"
Pros: "Except for my negative comment, a good flight."
Cons: "I paid extra for a window seat, but due to the poor alignment of the seats with the actual windows, I actually sat next to a wall! Nol much to see out of a wall. If KLM are going to charge extra for a window seat, then they should make sure there is a window there! If the seat had actually had a window it would have been an excellent flight."
Cons: "Very slow service. I wanted to by several goods from duty free. But crew served only first 20 rows of aircraft."
Cons: "One and a half hour delay on a 50 minute flight. Flight was operated by Cityjet on behalf of KLM. Never have I seen such bad customer service: from rude people at the bagage drop off to incompetent hostesses at the boarding gate."
Pros: "The crew was very friendly, helpful and accommodating. We were in business class and appreciated the use of the Clubroom Lounge at Gatwick airport, (although none of the ground people told us about it, we happened to ask on our own.)"
Cons: "Baggage check in was a hassle. Too automated."
Pros: "The crew was doing best for the circumstances of old aircraft and greedy airline."
Cons: "Westjet planes operating on the London-Vancouver route have no screens at the back of the seats. The entertainment system provided over wifi is impossible to connect (spent almost 2 hours trying until giving up) and internet is not free too. There is only paid food on this flight (~ $15 / meal)."
Pros: "The crew was fine and we were very comfortable. This is because we were in Premium seats. The experience is entirely different in economy, which we did while flying the other direction."
Cons: "The Westjet employees working on the ground as we disembarked in Calgary we’re not good. It took forever to get out stroller off the plane, and one employee was being really rude to all the people waiting for their strollers."
Pros: "Crew not attentive unless you were in club class"
Cons: "Didn’t really expect much it was okay"
Pros: "The Crew was great"
Cons: "Let my golf clubs fly at no charge. Seat update at check in at no charge."
Pros: "Quiet and comfortable"
Cons: "Charging customers for meals on a transatlantic flight is a terrible way to nickel and dime your customers for the most basic provisions. Not all travellers carry accepted credit cards, including the woman sitting beside me. Because it is so common (formally standardized) for airlines to provide food on longer flights, many travellers assume their WestJet flight will the same and arrive unprepared. I normally love WestJet for their customer service, but these flight attendants talked down to customers with legitimate questions. I am choosing another airline for my next international flight, although reluctantly so - I hope to see some changes from WestJet for a more comfortable flight."
Pros: "The flight staff were excellent. Very pleasant to deal with and very accommodating. They really let you feel that they were there to help and if they could they did."
Cons: "The only real irritation was the check in process. I have no issue whatsoever with the 23kg allowance per bag but the process for checking your bag, especially if you were over the limit and what the consequences may be were not obvious. My wife and I had two bags, mine was 4kg under the allowance and my wife's was 2kg over. If I had known this was going to be a potential GBP45 charge we would have shuffled things about to balance the bags. It needs to be made clear to people that they can actually weigh their bags first to find this out. My bag was already tagged and gone when we went through a lot of hassle to reduce my wifes bag weight. Anyway, this is a suggestion so that future passengers do not encounter the same frustration."
Pros: "Sensible ticket price"
Cons: "Leaving Gatwick 30 minutes late had us miss our planned Halifax to Toronto. The next flight was 4.5 hours later. After a trans Atlantic, that is horrid."
Pros: "The staff were super helpful and friendly, and the accommodations were clean and decently comfortable!"
Cons: "The food was very pricy and not that great. Also the boarding took a long time and seemed a little unorganized."
Pros: "For a long flight, WestJet is the way to go! Many flights were involved in our vacation. WestJet stands out above and beyond all the rest. And what a relief, since we took WestJet for our in August flight to and from Europe. Simply no comparison in all the various aspects of a flying experience."
Cons: "The seats are comfortable, for a tall person, the legroom is Apple, climate controls are good, the service is fantastic, everything about it! These people know what they’re doing The seats are comfortable, for a tall person, the legroom is Apple, climate controls are good, the service is fantastic, everything about it! These people know what they’re doing!"
Pros: "Enough space for long legs."
Cons: "Need more variety in snacks on the longer trips."
Cons: "Haven’t yet reached our destination, it’s our honeymoon and would have hoped to have got ther by now instead of which we are having to layover in Vancouver until the next flight because of delays on first Leg of journey we missed connecting flight"
Pros: "The crew. Very friendly and helpful"
Cons: "The food. Pizza was bad."
Pros: "The flight attendants were wonderful. The macaroni and cheese was tasty."
Cons: "The plane is so old that you can only use the entertainment system on your phone, which gets tiring to hold up in front of you. Even though I was on a 10 hour flight, meals were not provided."
Pros: "Inexpensive average airline"
Cons: "Pay for everything from food to bags, still better than Ryan air"
Pros: "Crew was very pleasant"
Cons: "As it was a budget flight, all food had to be purchased and the cost was high for the quality received"
Pros: "The basics were all up to standard, the flight was very full and because it's such a long flight it is expected to have a few discomforts from time to time..."
Cons: "TURN DOWN THE VOLUME on the announcements, it was so loud I could feel the book I was holding in my hands literally vibrating. I had to plug my ears to tolerate the blasts over the PA. I requested the volume be turned down repeatedly but it was never changed... from London to Calgary. More frequent offers for food/beverage would be appreciated, there were only two rounds made for the entire flight of almost 9hrs. It's just nice to have a bit more flexibility..."
Cons: "The complimentary in flight movie would not run on my android device. It ran for 5 minutes then froze."
Pros: "The friendly company of stranded passengers before and after boarding and crew who did their best not to get rattled."
Cons: "It took so long to get home and it is a long trip anyway."
Pros: "Piot gave clear and timely announcements as flight was delayed do to weather,. In-flight crew were friendly and providing a relaxing environment. The include meal was very good."
Cons: "Plane is showing its age. Bathroom was in terrible condition."
Cons: "- Booked using points & not offered the option to pre-order a meal - only non perishable food choices on board - flight delayed, crew at gate not well informed"
Pros: "The economy class seats were surprisingly comfortable."
Cons: "It's a personal taste thing, but I don't like flights where it is necessary to separately purchase all the normal things that other airlines provide on international flights (blankets, wine, food, etc). I'm sure others appreciate that level of economy, however."
Pros: "Re-booked on Westjet after my WOW airlines was cancelled. Didn't know what to expect - pleasantly surprised, Great service from top to bottom leaving Gatwick Airport. Will make them my top preference in searching future flights out that way."
Cons: "Nothing - the entire experience (check-in, flight, deplaning) exceeded my expectations."
Pros: "Plane was clean"
Cons: "Waitjet did not perform preventative maintenance and had to change a tire at Gatwick delaying flight by 2 hours with terrible/late/inaccurate information about when flight would resume = FAIL Result was overnite in Toronto. Lets see how the 6:45 (3446) goes ?"
Cons: "It wasnt possible to connect to entertainment system or wifi even though I had paid for wifi"
Pros: "It was a smaller aircraft and the staff were friendly"
Cons: "was right at the back of the plane and could not hear the announcements clearly."
Pros: "Getting on in Palm springs and getting off in Winnipeg. Thanks WestJet"
Cons: "Not knowing to download The app until I was on the plane"
Pros: "The flight was ok and the customer service overall good."
Cons: "A bit disappointing that the flight didn’t even have monitors to watch movies , you got to use your own tablets or cell phones. I prefer to save batteries on my devices when I’m travelling :)"
Pros: "The plane ✈ flew without incident."
Cons: "Airplane left late, no in flight movies, menu of food was very unusable. Because I am lactose intolerant, still, lots of cheesy entrées on the menu."
Pros: "I will never travel with west jet again"
Cons: "Everything Staff was so rude"
Pros: "Exact on time."
Cons: "Refreshment should have more choices"
Pros: "Glad I could rent a tablet"
Cons: "Flight was delayed"
Cons: "It took an hour and a half for the flight attendant to reach the fifth row to offer refreshment an then announced they had run out of red wine. Apparently she failed to check the stock before departure."
Cons: "I don’t understand how Westjet can get away with 1. Not providing food on a flight of this length, 2. Charging for the entertainment system which has basically no content"
Pros: "Very efficient boarding process and friendly crew members."
Cons: "Make sure to pre-order a meal up to 48 hours in advance, and to download the Westjet app to get access to free movies/TV"
Pros: "No Comments."
Cons: "The Female Stewardesses either conveniently did not see me sitting in the middle row seats, or perhaps had other alternative means. I felt totally and absolutely ignored, particularly when Meals and Beverages were being served."
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "Terrible food options. Sandwiches and croissants vastly overpriced: $8 for a croissant ($1) with a slice of cheese (25cents) and ham (50 cents) is ridiculous. Flight delayed on the ground for 1 1/2 hours."
Pros: "The crew was nice enough, although I did overhear them talking negatively about some other customers out of earshot."
Cons: "The food options were pretty poor for an eight hour flight. I'm happy I brought some food with me because there were few options (snacks - biscotti and party mix, no meals). They also charged customers for checking a bag; most airlines allow the first checked bag to be free for international flights. Not the case here."
Pros: "More leg space than I was used to and pretty spacious bathrooms (I'm 6'5")"
Cons: "The purchased Wi-Fi went down immediately and didn't come back up until 8 hours into the 10 hour flight."
Pros: "Great crew"
Cons: "Entertainment system was playing up"
Pros: "The lead crew member was extremely positive and apologetic and at the same time he was very entertaining whenever usually-boring announcements were made to the passengers."
Cons: "It sucks that the crew had to deal with so many angry passengers after we were stuck on the tarmac for 2 hours and in the gate for 1 hour, with a total delay of 3 hours, causing many other passengers to miss their connections. That said, the crew did their best to remain positive and accommodating."
Pros: "Our choice to pay the upgrade to Plus seating was WELL worth the cost. My husband and I had never flown 'first class' before and thought on this almost 9 hour flight we would give it a try. Wow! Seat comfort was fantastic. Service was wonderful. Food was great. We were made to feel like royalty."
Pros: "The return flight was acceptable. seats were comfortable. Would recommend on spending the extra $$ on get extra legroom seats."
Cons: "Flying out on December 24, the airline kept us at the airport for 6 (including 2 hours on the plane) hours before cancelling the flight because they could not get water pressure to the washrooms. We were supposed to leave for London (LHR) at 8:35pm and were notified of the cancellation at approx 2am on December 25. The only other flight that would be available would be on December 25 at the same time the 24th flight was supposed to leave. The service desk was not taking any requests for finding or re-booking flights, we were supposed to call their support number at 7am on the following day. We were offered cab fare accommodation from and back to the airport. They offered hotel stay which I passed on. They provided $60 of airport food that could only be used at certain restaurants, not compatible to purchase chips or drinks (non-alcoholic) from other stores. The coupons as compared to Air Canada, which are valid for a year were only valid for 24 hours. In the end the only "monetary" compensation I got from WestJet was 250 westjet dollars that expire in 12 months."
Cons: "Plane was 3 hours late to leave, Plane was old so the overhead bins were small, Had to pay for food on 7 hour transalantic flight even thought plane was delayed 3 hours on tarmac. USB power plug didn't work - if you want cheap flights to Gatwick, stick with Air Transat"
Cons: "My flight was delayed for 23 hours. It was scheduled to leave at 8:30pm on December 24th. I spent Christmas Day in the airport and in a hotel. Consequently I have no desire to fly with WestJet again."
Cons: "no food, no comfort, no entertainment stuff"
