Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "We took the offer of putting cabin baggage in hold. Some of those that retained theirs had "oversized" bags that should have been taken from them at the steps of the plane. As this did not happen there were a lot of problems including the problem of opening the lockers"
Cons: "Stricter control on cabin bags. The result was that our bags were already on the belt when we got to customs area"
Cons: "With 2h30 hours delayed flight I missed my train and had to have a hotel Arcturus airport in Amsterdam and continue my journey only the day after."
Pros: "Prompt service, clean plane, friendly stewards."
Cons: "There was no complimentary water/beverages for a 2.5 hour flight - would have been nice but oh well."
Pros: "The crew were fine."
Cons: "The flight left on time and arrived at Gatwick 15 minutes early."
Cons: "A plane made any year after 1990... Last minute flight switch caused great discomfort and VERY narrow seats"
Pros: "LCY very efficient baggage drop, flight arrived ahead of schedule"
Pros: "Boarded efficiently. Took off on time. Landed ahead of schedule."
Cons: "Checking in process. Choice of seats very limited and I accessed the website (literally) the minute online checkin opened."
Cons: "Incoming flight delayed so late departure"
Pros: "The flight crew"
Cons: "Never board check in luggage at lcy, they don't know what to do with it"
Pros: "Short flight, uncrowded Embraer plane, easy check in at City airport and easy arrival at Prague."
Cons: "Late departure due to “late arrival of inbound aircraft” - which seems to be the norm."
Cons: "Dear Sir or Madam: My two colleagues and I bought our tickets from BWI to Geneva, via London Heathrow, through Kayak as I have many times in the past. However, the Kiwi.com travel agency did not flag that the ticket from BWI to London Heathrow allowed for one piece of checked luggage, but the ticket from London Heathrow onwards to Geneva did not allow for any checked luggage. Also astonishingly, we had to pass through Customs, reclaim our checked suitcases from the baggage carousel, and check in again through Customs to board the onward flight, both coming and going through London Heathrow. In addition to the extraordinary inconvenience that we could neither transit at London Heathrow to our connecting flight without going through Customs twice and that we could not check our luggage through to our final destination, we also had to foot a higher baggage charge to allow for checking in our suitcases, now that we had arrived in London Heathrow only to discover this that our onward ticket did not cover one piece of checked luggage. Had we known that the seemingly better price posted by Kiwi.com on Kayak’s comparative offerings came at such a high price of inconvenience and additional expense for the luggage, we would have taken our business elsewhere. It was deceptive of Kiwi.com to engage in such practices, even if it disclosed these conditions in fine print (for no one would expect, nor have I ever seen previously in the hundreds of flights I have taken as a Million Miler on United), without flagging this. And similarly, it was irresponsible of Kayak.com to allow this “apples with oranges” comparison on its website. I’m making three more international trips in December, but I’m inclined not to use either Kayak.com and most certainly not Kiwi.com for future airline ticket purchases."
Pros: "City airport is very convenient from East London. Flight is only 40 minutes"
Pros: "Got to Prague safely"
Cons: "Old plane. Tired attendants"
Pros: "I was flying Business and I couldn’t tell any difference between Business and Economy except the covers on the headrest"
Cons: "No difference between Business and Economy"
Pros: "Flight departed on time, landed early, no queues at passport control and bags were delivered quickly."
Pros: "The crew was very friendly and kind, and the flight was very easy. The food was good and not too expensive. Security was not crowded at all (afternoon on a Tuesday). My bag got pulled in security and the man who inspected it was incredibly nice and was efficient and helpful."
Cons: "Boarding started a bit late, but I was running late as well so I can't complain much! The flight still landed on time."
Pros: "Too many delays"
Cons: "If you want to reserve your airline seat (I'm talking a standard economy seat) you have to pay $34 per seat if it's 24 hours or more before your flight. Guess what happens at 24 hours? The airport takes over and you're stuck in the middle of a crowded 10.5 hour flight all because you weren't able to select your seat ahead of time. Just another money grab from a tanking airline."
Pros: "Enough said"
Pros: "Good for leg room and nice and the seats are comfy and wide too. Still get a free drink and snack on this flight and the service was friendly and efficient throughout. We were very quick to board and flight landed early, so very happy."
Cons: "I'm guessing this plane was stopping in EDI for the night, so it parked way, way away from the terminal, so we had an extra 15 minutes none of us had been expecting to wait for the bus and transfer."
Cons: "No food available on flight in business class. Kitchen breakdown"
Pros: "Service kind and efficient"
Pros: "It was short and fine"
Pros: "Texting about lost bag, fast information"

Pros: "Clean efficient on time Nice staff"
Pros: "Crew was superb, very friendly and helpful as the handle of my bag broke. They did all they could to assist."
Pros: "Serve was normal and so was the food."
Cons: "Left the terminal building by bus to the aircraft. Had to exit the bus, WALK ACROSS the tarmac and up a set of stairs to the plane. REALLY, British Air couldn't find a proper gate at the terminal? What if it had been raining or my elderly mother that needs a wheel chair? BA needs to solve these problems fast if they want my service in the future."
Cons: "BA 884 and BA 885 (a 3 hours flight!) had no water , coffee and food at all !!! PLEASE HELP US !!!"
Cons: "my trip to England was a nightmare starting with American Airlines not being able to find my flight or my name in the system. It was worse on the return from Gatwick. They also couldnt find me in the system and i blame it all on this Kayak travel site. I will never again use Kayak !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! my trip was a nightmare."
Pros: "Fast Boarding. Easy Airport"
Cons: "Very Rude & Disrespectful Crew"
Pros: "Flight as always great"
Cons: "Delay made me miss two meetings"
Cons: "Extremely uncomfortable flight with unending turbulence. Seats horrible. Entertainment poor. Crew did not offer enough refreshments. Not a great flight..."
Cons: "Seats are way too tight. Plane itself was very loud."
Pros: "Entertainment options were varied and good."
Cons: "The Airbus seating in the tourist section is terrible. The seats are very close together, making it very difficult to get in and out, particularly if the person in front of you puts the seat back. On long flights we like to get up and move around a few times, and not only is it hard to get out of our seats to do this, there is little room to walk or stop to stretch. Heathrow London is tolerable if one is going to London, but as a place to change planes, it's exhausting. The various walks feel like mazes, and going from one terminal to another, even by tram, is time-consuming and tiring. We fly to Europe often, but we will try to avoid both British Airways (Airbuses, at least) and Heathrow."
Pros: "Easy boarding, quick travel and smooth landing."
Cons: "Basic snacks"
Pros: "everyone was very nice-thank you"
Pros: "Always a good flight out of LCY"

Cons: "Uncomfortable seats - especially for business"
Pros: "Flight crew were great"
Cons: "No room in the seats. I'm not heavy and was almost unable to move."
Cons: "Lost luggage"
Pros: "Better to avoid BA. At least they should serve some water. Next time I'll use some other airlines to get to London."
Pros: "Flight was on time"
Cons: "No preferred boarding for business class. Business class seat was exactly same as economy Food option was not good"
Pros: "Great movie selection! Really good...."
Cons: "I'm 5.10 so seats are much worse for me because of long legs! Especially on a long flight :("
Pros: "Comfort of plane"
Cons: "No indication given of delay. kayak knew before ground staff. On arrival parked at cargo terminal and had to get bus. Then stuck on bus for 10 minutes as could not get terminal fooors open. They turned heating up at full blast with no air. Surprised nobody passed out"
Pros: "Clean plane"
Cons: "We booked World plus, extra money, and they put us in the last row against wall where the seats hardly recline. I complained but we were well into our flight when we told the stewardess she did not get back to us regarding changing seats. She came back about 20 minutes laterwith unacceptable seats,far from our overhead and we could not sit together. We declined. My husband had to board early because his foot was in a special brace after recent surgery. They could only move him to a center seat where he would hae to risk someone stepping on his foot. We are 70 years old.We had one small meal on an 8.5 hour flight."
Pros: "Wasted nearly 3000$ Worst custmober service never buying ticket throggg you or just fly again They wanted a doctors note I sent it so many phone calls so much money spent on them ended up stuck in London sick without a ticket to return had to purchase a new ticket pay for hotel transport everything"
Pros: "Great crew, gently made sure we had our masks on."
Cons: "Boarded some passengers very early and had to wait on bus and plane for other passengers who boarded at normal time."
Pros: "The plane was already delayed they didnt notify us and when they posted the time on the board, we went 15 mins before the take off and they didnt let us on the plane"
Pros: "Nothing Horrible service"
Cons: "The customer service. The flight attendants have no respect"
Pros: "Schiphol was as busy as I’ve ever seen it even at 5am in the morning, but the combination of efficient systems and good natured staff throughout made everything flow very well. This good nature and friendliness was extended into the flight crew who were great. Unfortunate that the flight was delayed by an hour, but I understand this was no fault of the airline or crew. I just made my connection in Lisbon, so all was well. I’d also like to mention the helpful lady at bag drop. A nice reception is always appreciated."
Cons: "More updates from the flight deck during the delay would have been nice, but overall I was impressed and would certainly fly with that airline again."
Pros: "Nothing I like!"
Cons: "No free food or at least water. You need to pay for everything. High air fare, No seat LCD TV, No wifi. Worst airline ever"
Pros: "Nothing to tell seriously"
Pros: "Our flight had a medical emergency with a divert to Bourdeaux. I was quit impressed on how the crew managed the entire situation. Very impressive!"
Cons: "They brought a drink cart around as if to offer free drinks but then charge you after they pour it"
Cons: "Crew (as always with Transavia) is not at its best."
Cons: "Everything excelent"
Cons: "Easyjet seats are way better. Limiting the hand (cabin) luggage to 10kg and actually weighting it is ridiculous."
Cons: "Delay in boarding, extremely slow."
Pros: "Nice crew and pilots! Good food and beverage selection"
Cons: "No wifi. Luggage went to Detroit instead of Amsterdam. Was delivered 3 days later to the house I was visiting in sevilla Spain"
Pros: "Quick boarding and friendly crew."

Pros: "New plane, comfortable and the staff is nice"
Cons: "Even a small plastic bag with McDonald's in it is considered a hand luggage! The staff need to be in more control of the travelers - we had one & a half hours delay because a traveller wanted to change seats and didn't sit down."
Pros: "Seats were more comfortable than I expected."
Cons: "It would have been better to have 2 carry ons. Even a bag of snacks was considered a carry on and i had to put it and my purse in my backpack."
Pros: "Crew and pilots appeared competent. The plane was clean, the air conditioning worked well, even when we boarded in Crete."
Cons: "The seats are insanely small, cramped, and narrow, but that's why they call it TranSAVIA. I can live with a small seat for a much cheaper flight. The horror was getting to the gate. This is Greece, so no quick checkin, long lines, not really sure which is the right line. Then they change the gate at the last minute. Really the worst terminal I have been in for a long time, and this includes those in China and India. Even worst than La Guardia at rock bottom. But then you are in Crete... But DO allow at LEAST two hours to check in."
Pros: "Lost cost, I suppose you get what you pay for."
Cons: "Very slow to clear the waste cups and litter away. Only one run of drinks service. Very slow to get off the plane at Rotterdam, had to wait for geriatrics and disabled to get off the plane first and took forever."

Cons: "It didn’t happen."
Cons: "Wpuld be helpful to be able to put the online boarding pass in iPhone “wallet."
Cons: "Physically stood in the sun on the tarmac for half an hour in Marrakech waiting to board the plane. Seating is so compact it’s physically impossible for me to fit, I’m 6’3” then it took an hour forty five minutes to get our checked luggage in Lisbon. Everyone was furious. No explanation from the airport or airline. We missed our hotel shuttle, missed our hotel checkin. Just terrible."
Pros: "The fact that we arrived to Amsterdan"
Pros: "The crew was so nice."
Pros: "We had arrived to destination in somehow safe condition"
Cons: "- Will charge you for anything... extra kg (or less) - charge! Water for 5 hours flight? - Charge! - They ruined my suitcase and won't pay for it - Drunk people making mess on the plane and throw-up on your cloths? Your problem. To conclude, flight with many low cost, but never had that bad experience before."

Pros: "I did not have a snack or watch anything. So I did not rate in those areas. Quick boarding and unboarding!"
Pros: "Voor 50,- naar Praag en terug: hoe is het mogelijk?"
Cons: "Je kunt dan natuurlijk niet veel extra's verwachten."
Pros: "For the price I wasn't sure what I might get, but the flight was pleasant. Staff wasn't the best but ......"
Pros: "Even not allowed to eat, it was nice to have a drink with a little snack and even for the good feeling."
Cons: "Even not allowed to eat, it was nice to have a drink with a little snack and even for the good feeling."
Cons: "1. I paid for luggage and had proof. Ground crew said no record of it and I had to pay again. Now have to involve my credit card company. 2. Ground crew was extremely rude. 3. Flight delayed an hour and a half."
Pros: "Really good value for the trip. Impressed!"
Pros: "The crew was great"

Pros: "well kept aircraft. choices to buy snacks and drinks."
Pros: "The crew was fantastic. Very professional and responsive to passenger needs."
Cons: "Didn't like the boarding process. First come first serve is hard with small kids. If it was just me ok. Grown ups can be rude when they are trying to get on an aircraft and they walk right over kids."
Pros: "Lovely crew. Was glad to be able to move to an empty row. Flight attendants were very accommodating with tea & letting me borrow a pen. Super quick flight once we got off the ground."
Cons: "Flight was delayed, but more than that - WHERE ARE THE TRANSAVIA SIGNS AT THE AIRPORT?! I flew out of Orly, which is a nice, small airport that looks like a ghost town on one half of the check-in terminal. There are electronic kiosks which look like check-in kiosks but they don't work, and a whole floor of empty check-in booths with NO SIGNS as to where to go. I had to go to the information desk to find out where your check-in staff was - which is quite frustrating for a person who travels as much as I do. This should be easy, right? The trains in Paris are under construction during the summer. The whole transport system is screwed up (also lack of signs as to where to actually catch your train). So you're ALREADY stressed about catching your flight, and when you show up at the airport the check-in terminal (where is appears Transavia is located) is EMPTY?! That is RIDICULOUS. I am NOT a tourist. I LIVE & WORK all over Europe as an artist. I don't appreciate this sick twisted pleasure that some Europeans have in seeing confused tourists rush around like chickens with their heads cut off when their own infrastructure breaks down...because it DOESN'T JUST AFFECT THE TOURISTS! It's not cool. It's sadistic & a really crappy way to treat people who are just trying to appreciate and learn about your culture while supporting your economy while they're at it. A little bit of consideration goes a LONG way. And when it's severely lacking, as it was in this case, it makes me want to take my business & creative projects elsewhere. You have a whole Transavian UTOPIA one floor down from the main level. How about a few big TRANSAVIA SIGNS saying "ONE LEVEL DOWN" that tell people where to go instead of making everyone confused and mad when they're already in a rush to catch their plane?! How about a little empathy - seeing travel from the perspective of the TRAVELER? Just saying."
Pros: "Very friendly staff and efficient"
Pros: "Only reason why food and entertainment have one star is because I didn't eat anything so I don't know if it's good, and and it was a less then a hour fly no entertainment needed, for the rest the plain was very comfortable and clean, the staff was nice!!"
Pros: "Great service. Comfortable flight. Exceeded my expectations."
