Yes, there are, but all of them are to be found airside. If you are in transit, you can avail yourself of the round-the-clock Starbucks and Dilettante Chocolate & Mocha Café in the Central Terminal Food Court, while the B gates offer a McDonald’s and Qdoba Mexican Grill. Passengers arriving on late flights to Seattle can grab a drink and a small snack from Hudson News: the Central Terminal baggage reclaim branch is open 24h.

Cons: "Flight was 30 minutes late which made our connection very tight."
Pros: "Quick trip :-)"
Cons: "45 minute delay, but those are pretty understandable and unavoidable."
Pros: "SwissAir is the best airline ever. Modern, comfortable plane with space - excellent for long haul trips. Zurich is also a great airport in which to change planes."
Pros: "Crew were good, apart from forgetting at breakfast time that I had ordered gluten free food. Food was OK but not memorable."
Cons: "Business class is not as roomy as other airlines. My partner had to climb over me to reach the aisle, there is very little storage space and seat size is quite small. Choice of movies is limited."
Pros: "Good flight"
Pros: "movies choices were good, the crew was awesome, boarding was meh, but for NBO not bad"
Cons: "paid extra for the seats with more leg room and the amount of leg room I had was concerning in terms of what a regular seat may have looked like. I'm not even that tall, but when the woman in front of me reclined, I was pinned in my seat. Luckily I'm double jointed."
Pros: "All staff of Swiss made you feel important."
Cons: "Everything was fine"
Cons: "My Swiss flight to JFK was cancelled before 24 hours without explaining the reason. They should explain the reason at least. I had to take an another flight and arrived at JFK after 6 hours from the original flight. My trip was totally messed up, so I was not happy at all."
Cons: "The boarding process is very uncomfortable as the passengers are asked to board the plane without any specific order, regardless of where they’re sitting, instead of boarding them by groups."
Pros: "The service of snacks during the flight. My suggestion to change seating was followed by a adequate replacement. I think I will add sparkling/distilled water to my list of water choices."
Pros: "Food was better than some other long-haul flights I’ve been on. Plane fairly clean and comfortable."
Cons: "Entertainment options more limited than Delta or Virgin, who I’ve usually flown intercontinental. Boarding in Zurich was a mess. No order to it and they didn’t start boarding until 20 minutes before takeoff. Nearly every intercontinental flight I’ve taken needs closed to 45-60 minutes to do a full board. Sure we made up the time in the air but the process to get on the plane was frustrating."
Pros: "My partner and I loved our first flight with Swiss from JFK to Zurich the chairs was amazing, we enjoyed the full bed and the entertainmnet screen was amazing to enjoy. The food was delicious and the service was amazing."
Cons: "My Partner and I was dissatisfied with our connecting from Zurich to Cairo. We expected the same flight but we were in basically in coach with little more leg room. The chairs barely reclined to a comfortable position. There was no entertainment, just a three and a half hour flight at the flight plan on a small tv hanging over. their was no differentiation between the economy behind us. just the food that was brought to us, other felt the same as well who were traveling in business with us."
Pros: "The food was surprisingly good and the onboard crew was very nice and friendly. The seats seemed slightly more apart than on Lufthansa."
Cons: "The entertainment unit at my seat was really hard to hear, and from what I heard around me it seems like it's a problem at many if not most seats."
Pros: "It was okay. No complaints. I appreciated that I was given a seat near the front to run and make my next flight."
Cons: "my ticket was changed and messed up and could be due to language and understanding, I ran a lot to get to my flight and had to go back and forth between the check in line and ground force and wait out of line until a resolution was found."
Pros: "Was a very quick flight."
Pros: "Service was great staff very attentive food was good and crew makes sure you are never hungry or thristy"
Cons: "It was a 11 hour flight and coach seats too small to sleep"
Cons: "Headphones are real cheap and hurt the ears...plus it has two pin socket where you can't use your regular headphones...please change this!"
Pros: "Loved the smoked salmon!!"
Cons: "No wifi or tv"
Cons: "1h45 departure delayed with no compensation."
Pros: "You treated me with respect. That was appreciated compared to the many other airlines I traveled on during the past two weeks. I was not just someone herded into the airline."
Pros: "The crew made the best they can."
Cons: "The airplane was to old. The company should put a better one ."
Pros: "Our of the 4 females I interacted with only Miishiie was helpful. The movies are a good selection. They were on time."
Cons: "I'm 6'2 and black. I asked if I could pay to upgrade to business class after viewing coach. They lied and said it was full when I could see empty seats. They bumped up a white female for free 3 hours later."
Pros: "Attentive crew offwring water frequentlyflight"
Cons: "Flifght was far from full and I am small.so the very tight seat configuration was not a problem."
Pros: "Business class was full so I could not get an upgrade. There were only 4 lavatories for economy. One of those was broken and there was no water in any of the 3 remaining ones. The crew had no water either and they could not make tea or coffee."
Pros: "Flight attendants not friendly, constantly bumped me and never excused themselves. Food not so good and temperature too hot this flight. I was constantly putting on and taking off my jacket. Movie selection seems to be going downhill also. All that being said, I'm grateful for every safe landing."
Cons: "I was taken away from boarding for a random check that took a long time due to not enough staff Entertainment system was broken for about 50 people, even after a reset. Terrible for an overseas flight. Food was very poor, staff lied about resetting the entertainment system. The plane took off 1 hour late and was not allowed to taxi to taxi to the gate for 1 hour, making us extremely late."
Cons: "person behind me wouldn't allow my seat to recline and was constantly pushing/kicking my seat. I notified crew, but nothing was done about it."
Pros: "So far so good."
Pros: "Can't think of anything we didn't like. All the attendants were very nice, always smiling and helpful. It was great, will fly with Swiss again for sure."
Cons: "Can't think of anything."
Pros: "I like Swiss in general"
Cons: "Although on time for boarding, there was a long delay before take off, which made our connection very close!"
Pros: "The flight experience was efficient and secure; that's good. Staff generally professional."
Cons: "The seats were too small, and the food wasn't good enough, especially the 'salad' which consisted of some moderately old browned lettuce with no tomatoes. Happened on my flight back as well. The one time when I thought the staff faltered was when I hit the paige attendant button, and noone came for 25 mins. I ended up walking to the back of the plane and asking for water myself. I also thought some of the materials used in the plane were cheap, like the foldout tables on the back of the seat, the pillow covers, and the headphones (one of which broke midway). The headphones don't cover the noise of the jet in flight very well."
Pros: "Great entertainment center. Complimentary alcohol and snacks. All this masks the torture of sitting in a way -too-small seat for 11 hours plus."
Pros: "This is the way to fly long haul."
Cons: "Frustration is it is impossible to sleep during the breakfast service, but this is a problem for all airlines and Virgin is better than most."
Pros: "Crew were super friendly and helpful. Food was delicious, comfortable seats, great selection of entertainment."
Cons: "Cheaper baggage rates"
Cons: "Information on when we can check in on upcoming flights. Other airlines we have booked for flights will email us 24 hours prior to departure. Virgin Atlantic did not. I had to call and I was directed to their web site and was able to check in on line. Thanks"
Pros: "The staff were helpful. The entertainment had good variety. Adjustable head rest was useful."
Cons: "The seat was a little lumpy. More leg room would always be appreciated."
Pros: "Crew was great!"
Cons: "The scone and roll were blah and dry - and so much bread in one meal!!! My seat charger didn’t work :("
Cons: "There was a medical issue and Virgin Atlantic refused to accept the ticket code - for any price - toward a new ticket. I paid for a new ticket and took another airline."
Cons: "My tv screen could not show the movies"
Pros: "The crew on Virgin Atlantic was superb!"
Cons: "The food is not very good at all. One mediocre meal served soon after take-off, then for the rest of the flight tasteless, cardboard pasties and wraps."
Pros: "I had one of the few empty seats next to me."
Cons: "The food is awful. Not enough toilets."
Cons: "My bag was damaged in transit"
Pros: "Provides the service you'd expect from an international carrier. Boarded on time, seat actually reclines, meals, baggage, seat assignments are included in the price. Staff treat you well and the price isn't bad."
Cons: "Virgin website is slow and not intuitive. Couldn't get seat assignment until i was at the gate. No explanation why. Boarding announcements delivered via ESP. Half of the passengers were still in the boarding area because no one heard announcements. Arrived 30 min early but had to wait on the tarmac for 45 min for a parking gate. Baggage delivery at JFK took forever."
Pros: "Everything except the food"
Cons: "The food is atrocious. Even if I have to pay to upgrade my meal, I would..."
Pros: "Food and snacks!!!!!"
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: "Entertainment Meal service and quality"
Pros: "Crew very friendly"
Cons: "Seats and legroom poor if you’re six feet tall"
Pros: "Complimentary newspaper Food service"
Cons: "Overhead reading light"
Pros: "Friendly cabin crew, excellent food and drinks. Very happy with the service we received"
Pros: "Free everything...food, wine, spirits, movies, etc. Nice crew!"
Cons: "Seats a little hard, main dinner dish was a little odd but okay."
Pros: "Checking in at the counter even I wasn't allocated a seat but the gentleman was very humble and polite."
Cons: "The fact that I was told I would be given a seat at the boarding gate. I got to the airport very early to get a good seat only to be that and was given a very uncomfortable seat where I couldn't stretch my legs well because of a box on the floor situated to my left leg and to make the matter even more annoying my screen was not working which I was forced to take one heavy meant-so-called laptop. And finally cabin crew were lacking serious customer service and when u ask for something they were just so reluctant to deliver as if we were given a free ticket or something. May it be noted that my ticket was not that cheap to be treated in such manner."
Pros: "Cool flight, mainly because it was empty. Good food"
Cons: "Seats weren't that comfortable. Entertainment sucked because the screen functions were terrible, very difficult"
Cons: "Too much food - not enough time to sleep in comfort!"
Pros: "Quite a big choice of movies and TV shows to watch, more than enough for an eight hour flight. Normal headphone plugs so you can use your own."
Cons: "I booked together with my wife, yet we were allocated seats apart and were not able to be reassigned together. The leg room was so tight that I could not pick up things off the floor without putting my head in the next persons lap. Though the cabin crew were smiley and friendly, it was hard to get their attention when needed. The PA system is much louder than the entertainment, so announcements were ear bursting. The dinner selections ran out early, so a good proportion did not get their choice."
Cons: "Food was terrible"
Pros: "We really enjoyed flying with Virgin and so made sure we booked into a Virgin flight for this trip and not delta. The food was good, entertainment good when it worked."
Cons: "We got told that our flight number had changed from VS103 to VS4049 but still a Virgin flight. Only when we checked in we found out we were now flying with Delta and number was now DL285. Was not happy as wanted to fly with Virgin.The seats were ok but the entertainment system went down mid film. Took an hour to get started again. The games didn't work. Staff were a bit grumpy."
Cons: "We were told over the phone that we could bring our kayaks with us to Africa but the airport staff denied not only our kayaks, but also our paddles which were in a standard ski bag. Their excuse was that both the kayaks and paddle bags were 2 inches too long. .. TWO INCHES!!!!!! We had record of the person we talked to and the time and date, but none of that seemed to matter. It caused A HUGE INCONVENIENCE for us since we are in Zambia for 6 weeks without our gear to paddle one of the most challenging rivers in the world... the Zambezi. Now we are constantly trying to acquire the proper equipment with very little success. We run a nonprofit called the Montana Kayak Academy which provides free whitewater instruction to youth between 8 &18 yrs old and we will be sure to tell everyone we know to NOT TRAVEL WITH EITHER VIRGIN ATLANTIC OR BRITISH AIRWAYS.... EVER!!! VERY DISAPPOINTED! !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"
Pros: "Cabin crew were friendly and attentive. Flight was on time and we got to Atlanta early"
Cons: "Could do with more legroom. Food not the greatest"
Pros: "I had a great experience from start to end of my trip. Most of the staff were pleasant and professional. Food wasn't okay and red wine on flight from Heathrow was delicious."
Cons: "The red wine on the flight from Lagos was too sharp. That is the regular one served on virgin flight so was glad when I tasted the new one served on the flight from Heathrow, thinking it's been changed!"
Pros: "the crew were the friendliest I've flown with (Irish & British)... the lighting was very relaxing and the continuous snack service was much appreciated (especially ice cream).. gonna try premium economy next time as the seats looked even better..."
Cons: "Vera the entertainment screen was very good but there were no newly released movies, everything seemed to be a couple of months old... the leather headrest was comfortable but kept slipping down to behind my neck, would be nice if it was lockable in position.."
Pros: "Everything went very fast and smooth. I didn't have to queue for the boarding. The Sita were very comfortable, the crew very friendly and halepful and the selection of the movies A+."
Cons: "My headphones and those of my neighbors did not work."
Pros: "We were inmiddle seats -not our preference. We were told in Dublin that we had different seats to the ones we ended up in. Food was excellent, crew were very nice. Loved the "make a wish" event on this flight - a definite plus for Virgin."
Pros: "1st class, what's not to like?"
Pros: "Food was great, plenty of it also"
Cons: "I'm 6'4" and there was no acknowledgement by the crew that I was squashed into a tight seat."
Pros: "Virgin Atlantic had a very attractive decor.Food was great& staff as well. Polite and professional ."
Cons: "The seat I had was a bit snug leg wise and recline wise. Could not get comfortable at all."
Cons: "I did not get the requested meal. I had requested Asian Veg meal. I had reconfirmed that Virgin Atlantic Kiosk at Heathrow airport as well. In flight when I asked cabin crew they said they didn't get any request. I was hungry whole flight. Very bad experience."
Cons: "cabin was nice but cold"
Pros: "The plane was very nice with great lighting. More food would have been nice as it was a long flight The crew were variable - most very helpful but one or two not so much"
Cons: "Not enough food for everyone and no snacks between meals, which was very bad considering it was a 10 hour flight Entertainment was great, seats were OK (certainly had worse)"
Pros: "As expected, great customer service from Virgin. Great Vera system. Friendly and welcoming experience."
Cons: "The seats!!!! Omg I got bed sores. Not really but they have got to be the most uncomfortable things I have ever sat in. For a European flight from Uk they'd be fine. But for 9 hours...not good. The short hop down from ATL to MCO after was a blessed relief. Virgin, you have got to think a little more about your passengers asses. Also, having flown with just about every major transatlantic operator, including previous trips with Virgin, the knee room was not good. If you stretched out under the seat in front you were ok but draw your knees up... I wore short trousers for comfort and have sore points on my knees where they rubbed against the material of the chair in front."
Cons: "Cold draft at all times."
Pros: "Flight was on time .. Friendly crew. Good entertainment system"
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: "No queues on check in, security nor on arrival. New plane, touch screens, usual abundance of films and food. More drink rounds than last trip. Wifi if you want it."
Cons: "cabin crew very perfunctory. No apology for screen needing resets ( sorry about that would do). Ok but no smiles or personal interaction"
Pros: "Boarding was quick and good"
Pros: "Lufthansa long haul flights has a really cool air flight status system."

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."

Cons: "Online check-in did not work. When I checked in at the airport, I received only a middle seat."

Pros: "Smooth process. Regular updates."

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"
Cons: "The plane lands a considerable distance from the airport, you walk across the tarmac in the rain to a bus, and then the bus ride is almost 15 minutes. I expect Lufthansa to have a better berth at Frankfurt."
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: "Nie odbyl size powodu opuznienia samolotu z Chicago do Londynu"
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."

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"
Cons: "It was too warm. The air above was not cool"
Pros: "Great aisle seat on a modern plane.I was in the middle seat on an older plane for the trip there (close to 8 hours), and it wasn’t as comfortable. The trip from Reykjavík to Seattle was great: comfortable seat and more room, though they were both in the same fare class."
Cons: "We paid extra for an exit row with more leg room and were moved to a standard seat. We were also separated from the rest of our party. We spoke to the help desk to try and resolve the issue they told us the seats we were moved to also had extra room but when we boarded the plane this was not true."
Pros: "The seat was very uncomfortable. I think it’s time for them to be reupholstered or something."
Cons: "Some food - peanuts or crackers and cheese - just something for those who didn’t know nothing would be served."
Pros: "THIS AIRLINE IS RIDICULOUS. CANCELLED ON US AS SOON AS WE LANDED IN FRAMCE. DIDNT ENJOY IUR VACAY BECAUSE OF IT."
Cons: "Two flights at the same time to same locations through unlabeled gates (up some stairs and through two doors before checking boarding passes) confused about 30 people. this was not optimal. Putting the boarding pass check earlier would remove the confusion."

Cons: "As has happened to us before our extra leg roo. Seats (that we paid extra money for) disappeared when we checked in and we’re replaced with separate seats in the back of the plane. Boarding is long and very disorganized. It took over an hour to get our bags."
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: "Short duration and cheap price."
Cons: "I wish there was a larger selection of food to order and that the portions were larger. The beverage cart only came by once during the trip, though water was offered twice. The entertainment selection was mediocre with mostly old movies and many movies offered only in Icelandic."
Pros: "Always nice to travel with this airline and I will be in the air with them again"
Cons: "Icelandair attitude suck and is the reason I will not even visit Iceland now."
Pros: "Ok price"
Cons: "No checked bags included, but this was unclear at the time of purchase, even though it was an international flight."
Cons: "Huge lines for everything,got delayed by 1 hour....."
Pros: "Just enough room to be comfortable and the seats reclined enough so you could sleep. But I watched three good movies instead."
Cons: "I would have looked led a free cookie."
Pros: "Inexpensive tickets"
Cons: "No inflight meals"
Pros: "The entertainment selection was good (movies) and the staff was friendly, however on the 8 hour flight, my headphone jack to watch movies did not work."
Cons: "The connector for my headphones did not work on the 8 hour flight, every other airline will provide, at a minimum, a complimentary snack where as on this flight you needed to pay for everything, seat assignments were changed (booked with a group of 6 and we were all sitting with each other when we booked it but when we got to the gate everyone was scattered. In fact, I heard a man say he was on his honeymoon and that they changed his wife's seat so they were unable to sit together."
Cons: "No free meal or alcohol. Small seats."
Pros: "Free stop"
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: "we were delayed 7 hours due to technical hour. 3 of these hours were spent on the tarmac."
Cons: "Reykjavik Airport was the worst for lines, delays, and boarding, You are bused to and from the terminal/plane."
Pros: "Staff were hard working and tried to accommodate fliers needs,"
Cons: "Reykjavik Airport was the worst for lines, delays, and boarding, You are bused to and from the terminal/plane."
Cons: "A youth group of some kind caused my flight to be nearly two hours delayed because they lost two of their kids and a chaperone, then refused to board without them. Icelandair made it the problem of everyone else on the plane rather than deal with the minority of passengers. As a result, I missed my connection flight and my total trip time had nearly five hours added to it. It is doubtful I will ever fly Icelandair in the future."
Pros: "arrived in good time"
Cons: "gate change at last minute, long wait for bus to aircraft."
Pros: "Going to Copenhagen via Iceland felt like going there through the back door. I liked it. Rather go that way than through a London connection. The Iceland airport was very busy, had trouble finding the correct gate for departure to Copenhagen. I wasn't expecting to depart the plane on arrival in Iceland and be put on a bus to be taken to the airport complex. Was also put on a bus from the airport to the plane for departure to Copenhagen. I would in the future fly with Iceland air again. I was treated well by the airline personnel, and I was happy to give that country my business. Shirley"
Cons: "Very short layover, getting on plane was hectic."
Cons: "Reykjavik airport seriously under sized for peak times. No waiting areas of any size. Overcrowded restaurants, limited and overpriced stores."
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."
Cons: "The over size baggage drop and check in process were very lengthy and fraught with problems."
Pros: "Riding in economy, the only good thing about Icelandair is the crew, beverage selection, and an okay entertainment system."
Cons: "Paid wifi is slow for work use (ex: bad for VPN) but ok for personal use. There is no free meal service compared to other carriers. The seat space does feel a bit cramped, but not the worst."
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."
Cons: "The boarding process was chaotic it started late and then by allowing everyone to board at once it created a rush to the desk. People were not held to the one personal item and one carry on rule causing there to be a lack of space in the overhead compartments. The aircraft was out of date, the entertainment screens and charging ports in my whole row were broken."
Pros: "(The same evaluation applies to this flight as to the previous flight from Brussels.)"
Pros: "All of the employees are highly professional and very kind. IcelandAir is my new favorite company for flying!"
Cons: "Everything was great!"
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: "In flight entertainment was good"
Cons: "A warm meal would be nice."
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: "- We arrived safely. - Crew was cordial, polite and professional. - Company allows delaying flight delay up to a week free of charge, to enable tourism in Iceland (we did not take advantage this time)."
Cons: "- Reykjavik airport boarding is a mess (as always). No waiting area with seating near gates. People are standing in hallways like cattle. - Plane was louder than usual, even though we were seated near front, 2 rows behind first class. - insufficient legroom for taller people. - company charges extra for exit row seats. - no complimentary food, except for children under 12, for a transatlantic flight. - some trash (plastic bottles) left under seats from previous flight. - human waste smell from septic tank in cabin toward end of flight."
Pros: "the flight attendants were awesome"
Cons: "Would have loved a more reclining seat for such a long trip."
Pros: "The child-friendly service is nice as kids get a free meal. The food you can buy is pretty good."
Pros: "The planes were fairly comfortable, the staff great, and individual tvs good."
Cons: "Almost two hours late leaving MSP.Luggage did not get to London until two days after we did."
Pros: "Window seat, clear sky, only a few bumps. Loved looking down as we crossed over Greenland."
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Icelandair is an overall good value but they left one of our bags in Iceland. WTF? The plane wasn't even half full. Then when we get to Seattle there is nobody able to help us. Had to call customer service who told us to call back after 8:30 Iceland time. That's 10:30pm in Seattle. This after we'd flown from Copenhagen for eleven hours. Then they tell us the previous person should have had us fill out the online form. All very frustrating."
Pros: "It was a treat to have a whole row of seats to myself from London to Reykjavik. Would have been nicer to have that space from Reykjavik to Denver, but I know that you need to fly full of passengers. The internet connection in the Reykjavik airport was good; better than in LGW."
Cons: "It's a mess at the Reykjavik airport while they are remodeling! Not nearly enough seating is provided for waiting passengers. Having to board and unload outside is also difficult for older passengers especially. It will be good when you no longer have to bus folks from the plane to the airport and back."
Pros: "Love iceland air for seat comfort and entertainment options, despite late boarding we still arrived on time."
Cons: "There was no communication in Reykjavik to our boarding area, they boarded 20 minutes late with no communication or update on the intercom. Then they just opened boarding with no communication, very strange. IcelandAir still operates in the dark ages with seating assignments, I was unable to select seats for my flight ahead of time because tickets were purchased through another ticket vendor other than the airline itself. I also don't like how all food has to be purchased even though it is a 7+ hour flight."
Pros: "Crew was very nice"
Cons: "Food should be included on international flights, especially long ones like this (over 7 hours)."
Cons: "Tight seating"
Pros: "Crew as always with air Canada were very accommodating. Always smiling!"
Cons: "Not enough movie options"
Pros: "New plane in the excellent condition. Leg room in economy not bad. Crew friendly and efficient. Boarding worked well."
Cons: "The main meal was pretty dreadful. Grilled chicken with what I think was mashed potato, but it was difficult to be sure. Watery and tasteless. Accompanied bizarrely by a tomato sauce (which did taste of something). Hard to identify the ethnicity."
Pros: "Really nice comfortable seats, amazing windows larger then usually with new technology. Food was ok. It was nice that crew constantly was offering drinks"
Cons: "See above - seats worn out, entertainment worn out, Crew battling old tired aircraft. Massively overpriced. Bring on WestJet direct to Ottawa."
Pros: "Beautiful new 787"
Cons: "Entertainment options could be more plentiful."
Pros: "I am 6ft 1 / 185cm and the leg room was OK for an economy flight. Food was OK for airplane food. Staff were very friendly. Overall very happy."
Pros: "Clean, friendly crew remembered how we had our tea/coffee from the earlier service"
Cons: "Economy is never very comfortable but was better than a lot of other airlines"
Pros: "Air Canada is fantastic. Will never use air india."
Cons: "I liked everything about AirCanada and nothing about Airindia."
Pros: "Crew were good"
Cons: "Seats were too tight. Entertainment was mediocre"
Cons: "I wasn’t able to check in online and therefore wasn’t able to update with my dietary requirements which meant I couldn’t really eat anything that was given. I was told at the airport that it needs to be submitted 24 hrs before the flight and there was nothing they could do. Really unfair and not on."
Pros: "The hot dinner was good"
Cons: "The pudding was poor, it was just a wrapped cookie. The movie selection was terrible! Most of the films were very old!"
Pros: "great service from start to finish would use again"
Pros: "its was smooth"
Pros: "The crew. The keg room is OK and so was the food."
Cons: "My luggage was lost for five days. The USB port on the seat back didn't work and the sound for the movies was so bad I couldn't watch anything. No boarding by zones, which we had on our outbound flight."
Pros: "Everything went very very well."
Cons: "High cost Toronto Airport meals and beverages."
Cons: "Employees very poorly trained in dealing with problems. While our flight was okay, the previous flight was overbooked and a number of transferring customers were bumped because their flight was late. I understand this is common practice, but the employees handled it VERY poorly, even yelling at the passengers when they voiced their dismay at what was going to be a very long layover after a very long international flight."
Pros: "Service is good"
Cons: "Film selection is ok."
Pros: "Boarding was very well-organised ands clearly explained."
Cons: "USB socket broken and non-functioning. Plastic fork snapped and shed tines. A truly ghastly movie selection."
Cons: "Toronto international airport was very crowded. too many people , not enough facilities. You have to line up to do anything, even buy a bottle water."
Pros: "Liked everything about this new class of service on Air Canada. Seat was comfortable with good recline that didn't interfere with fellow passengers. Food was excellent, entertainment system was well stocked, flight attendants were friendly and high energy. Even got to use lounge and fast-track security lane at Heathrow."
Cons: "Zero complaints."
Cons: "Why not board front to rear. It would save mega aisle clog during boarding!"
Pros: "It was fine. :-)"
Cons: "Seats are always too close to the ones in front , crushing knees."
Pros: "Large comfortable seats."
Cons: "You now have to pay for drinks on British Airways flights"
Cons: "No legroom at all. Try to squeeze far too many passengers."
Pros: "Short flight. Simple. Smooth."
Cons: "There was a short delay because crew was caught up in security."
Pros: "Got home safe"
Cons: "Meal -"
Pros: "The 787 aircraft. What a beautiful plane"
Cons: "Calgary airport. NEVER AGAIN!"
Pros: "good overall...so MUCH BETTER THAN Air Canada rouge service we took from Ottawa to Venice. Rouge service is very poor!!"
Pros: "On time, a huge variety of new movies, the meal was very good."
Pros: "There were no problems. I had an empty seat next to me."

Cons: "Overall came across as not up to the standards of other carriers."
Pros: "Very fast."
Pros: "Getting through customs was very easy."

Pros: "Staff and food"
Cons: "We lost one of our bags"
Cons: "Horrible to say the least"
Pros: "Airbus 380"
Cons: "Different treatment for persenger. Equal things should be treated equally."
Cons: "I found the seats a bit tight."
Pros: "Relatively comfy economy class seats, great in-flight entertainment, decent food and plenty of beverages served by kind and professional attendants."
Cons: "Only negative was a significant delay."
Cons: "I was NEVER TOLD I would need a transit visa to fly through Canada. I was denied boarding in Entebbe by British Air and had to rebook and pay for another flight on a different airline that didn't fly through Canada. Who has another $1,700 in their pocket to cover such expense? A terrible financial hardship. I will NEVER use Kayak again to book travel."
Pros: "Generally OK Food quite good, relatively"
Cons: "30 mins delay Cramped even for Economy"
Pros: "Quick boarding."
Pros: "Space and meals"
Pros: "Crew tried hard"
Cons: "Boarding process chaotic. Seemed to be a new process that involved multiple checks and was not well organised. Entertainment system had not been loaded with the latest films and we're still from previous month."
Cons: "There were not that many movies to choose from. I expected several hundred. Only a few dozen."
