Pros: "The crew did their best to deal with delay."
Cons: "There was an absolutely awful job done by both Delta and Kayak of informing us if additional delays, new gate assignments, when the plane would be reboarded. Also, people were quite angry that the plane had to be cleaned between the time we got off and the time we reboarded. Just get us home."
Cons: "No sandwiches for sale just snack boxes"
Pros: "Everything was good/adequate, nothing was exceptional."
Pros: "The fight was very professionally carried out."

Pros: "The crew and the comfort plus seat"
Cons: "Announcements were too loud in earphones (could damage ear drums) and entertainment was turned off while waiting 30 min for the gate to open."
Cons: "The in-flight entertainment in my seat did not work properly so I could not enjoy watching movies or shows. A minor but unfortunate inconvenience."
Cons: "Smooth on time flight"
Cons: "Broken in-seat entertainment system for one of our seats, customs pre-clearance in Dublin took forever, but not the airline's fault."
Pros: "The crew really kept us updated on the many delays."
Cons: "There were SO many delays and they kept changing. At one point we got on and off the plane."
Pros: "Everything was good except boarding was delayed several times and even after everyone had boarded. We arrived 2 hours behind originally scheduled time as the result."
Cons: "Delta needs to try harder to minimize flight delays."
Pros: "The seats were ok."
Cons: "The flight was delayed over 3 hours so I missed my connection in Chicago to Seattle. I’m now stick in Chicago overnight and have to be on a 6 am flight tomorrow. The Delta staff at LaGuaurdia was extremely rude and not helpful at all. Hate Delta......"
Pros: "Crew were very good but the seats were not comfortable for an eight hour flight"
Cons: "A little bit of leg space"
Pros: "The cabin crew was efficient and very cooperative. My seven hour flight in economy class could not have gone better. Kudos to Delta for a safe and comfortable ride."
Cons: "A few more audio selections would have been welcome."
Pros: "Very friendly cabin crew. Comfortable and food was good and drinks and water was plentiful. I would highly recommend Delta for transatlantic flights,compared to so called 4* airline Aer Lingus, then Delta are a 6* in comparison"
Pros: "Fast boarding, friendly crew, and comfy seats"
Cons: "It was pretty bumpy and a few times we changed altitude very quickly"
Pros: "I loved the flight attendants and the desk staff everyone was so friendly and made me want to travel delta again."
Cons: "Delta doesn’t offer military spouses free checked bags and I found this out at the airport. It was disheartening, but at least it’s Delta and not the airline that is supposed to represent America."
Cons: "Plane journey awful. Speaker had a loud buzzing noise all the time so never heard a word bad landing. Rattling plane Very cold."
Pros: "As usual great staff and awesome entertainment/connectivity"
Cons: "Due to weather & maintenance flight was delayed for IFR release & fuel temperature gauge issues. Staff was very helpful. Would have appreciated a drink voucher. Some unprofessional passengers took their frustrations out on the flight attendants."
Cons: "Over an hour delay before boarding due to supposedly bad weather. Because flight was overbooked they were offering $400 gift card to change to standby on another flight. If you didn’t make that flight (evening), you’d be confirmed on a flight the following morning with one stop in Detroit (we booked a nonstop to Chicago). Uh, no thanks. Then to top it off, we’ve landed and been told that it will be at least an hour before we can deplane due to no availability at the gate (it’s 1145 pm right now). All this plus their new policy of not allowing us to select our seats because we bought the cheapest tickets. Really Delta? You go ahead and cater to the rich and I’ll choose to fly with another airline."
Pros: "Crew friendly"
Cons: "Middle seat with no option for me to move"
Cons: "Break downs again... At least this time they found another plane."
Pros: "I flew on a basic economy fare (I understand the restrictions) and was seated in Economy Comfort +, so that was appreciated."
Cons: "I could see on the Fly Delta app that I had been placed in seat 10B, but neither the app nor my boarding pass gave me a group to board with, so I assumed that I needed to board with group 3, which necessitated gate-checking my rollerboard bag. Only when I approached the gate to board did I notice on the info screen that I had been "upgraded" to Comfort + and granted boarding with the Sky Priority group. I wish this had been clearer so I could have avoided waiting to board and gate-checking my bag. Minor inconvenience but room for improvement on Delta's part."
Pros: "The Delta people were solicitous, efficient and brilliant the whole way through. We had not a bit of trouble. Our first class seats were comfortable, but with the supplied blanket, pillow and poor air conditioning it was a hot flight. The cabin personnel were wonderful as per usual, and my tasty gin and tonic soothed any discontent. I wish I could fly this way all the time!"
Cons: "The private contractor handling wheelchair assistance was terrible. A Delta employee theorized that they do not pay enough to attract and retain personnel. Our pre-arranged chair was not there, multiple calls by our Delta assistant finally got us a ride to the chair holding area, but after about 45 minutes we gave up and shuffled off to the security area on foot. Thank goodness my hubby is mobile enough for that to have been an option. When we abandoned our wait we were still 4th in line for an attendant to push the chair. If Delta has any responsibility in this it would be in the retention and compensation for the private contractor."
Pros: "We were traveling with a toddler and infant but put in different row because the tickets were purchased separately. Gate staff promptly put us together and even bumped us up to delta comfort. Was a very pleasant trip. Thanks delta!"
Pros: "Free entertainment of new and older movies, free meals (although still typical airline food"
Cons: "Can someone please improve airline food?! They definitely fed us a lot, which is not something that usually happens on coach flights, but the main entrees were quite soggy."
Cons: "There is just not enough leg room for a flight that long and the seats don't recline enough to be comfortable unless you upgrade and the tickets were already overpriced."
Pros: "Accident on way to airport, so I showed up to check bags 45 minutes before flight time. They said they couldn't get the bag to the plane..in 45 minutes? So, they put on the next flight... 6 hours later. Said I could fly without the bag... uh, no thanks. They would not look for alternatives without charging me more. Flight attendants were crabby, otherwise everything was fine. I flew British Airways a few months ago. Night and day. Seriously. Delta does not even approach having good service. There was no comparison to British Air--- Delta is not in the same league."
Pros: "Airline stewards were very friendly and pleasant."
Cons: "We booked with Delta, but were put on Air France. Even though we had our boarding passes in hand we had to wait in long, slow line for baggage tags because they would not print from kiosk. There was minimal Air France staff on duty serving thousands of passengers during busy season (July). While the lines grew larger, the staff was reduced from 4 to 2. Another long, slow line for customs, another long slow line for security=Charles De Gaulle airport was awful. We arrived at the airport 4 hours before our departure time and got to our boarding gate with no time to spare."
Pros: "Entertainment options weren't bad. Most of the crew was polite other than one flight attendant who seemed ambivalent and unhappy to be there."
Cons: "Three hour+ flight and just one tiny bag of pretzels? And no lemon or lime wedges on the beverage cart? Plus, I have to pay extra for one checked bag. I will only fly Delta if I have to in the future. Subpar airline."
Pros: "The crew was friendly and efficient.. Our seats were comfortable for the long flight.. great amount of entertainment to enjoy for such a long flight.. and good variety of food.."
Cons: "We had a 3 hour delay due to mechanical issues.. but the safety measures the crew and staff took was very much appreciated."
Pros: "What I liked: Sky Priority privilege came with separate luggage check-in queues and early boarding"
Cons: "What I disliked: Seats were too small No beverages or snacks offered No USB or power outlets available Three different groups board before Delta Comfort (e.g. those needing more time, travelers with children, first/business class) Didn't see the value compared to a less expensive main cabin ticket"
Pros: "I was notified about the delay via text before I left for the airport, which was nice. I would not have checked my email."
Cons: "Delayed for over 2 hours. I have never flown Delta before this flight and it wasn't a great representation. The flight attendants were nice but I was in a seat near the engine and it was making really weird noises. I fly almost every two weeks, so I'm used to engine noises but this was one of the loudest/most rickety sounding flights I have ever been on.. and I have flown Spirit a few times. It just didn't feel safe. Landing scared me a little too as I have landed in O'Hare countless times and have never flown so low to the highway upon entry. It felt like we were only a couple hundred feet above the cars."
Pros: "Great short trip with an attentive crew."
Cons: "Seats were a bit uncofortable and small compared to previous flights."
Cons: "The flight attendant looked like she was mad throughout the whole flight"
Pros: "We were delayed due to weather and Delta brought a cart of snacks and drinks over to the gate for us."
Pros: "Salimos a tiempo . El business es muy confortable"
Cons: "La comida horrible . No se limpian los baños"
Pros: "Due to business I travel allot so I deal with allot of airlines. This is by far the best airlines I have used. Excellent crew and airport staff. I don’t think words can express how satisfied I am with this airlines and airport. The nicest people and great service. Clean and modern aircraft. Going to try flying only with KLM from now on."
Pros: "Confort and kindness"
Cons: "It was too cold"
Pros: "Muslim food"
Cons: "Information on arrival time was not correct"
Cons: "Boarding was chaotic & therefore delayed take off a little Receiving luggage was slow -@ 35 minutes from landing to luggage claim, so actual arrival was considerably later for those meeting me"

Cons: "The coffe and breakfast."
Cons: "The KLM crew are always great serving and treating you. Well above many other airlines."
Pros: "No delay and nice staff"
Pros: "Pleasant flight"
Cons: "We were delayed & missed our connection"
Cons: "We were allowed to choose our seats from SFO to Amsterdam but not for the return flight. I like to be able to choise my seats when I book the flight. Choosing seats 24 hours before is not convenient when traveling for the return trip."
Cons: "This was just a short commuter flight from Lyon to Amsterdam for connection."
Pros: "Food, entertainment and crew was exceptionally friendly."
Cons: "Seats not great for such a long flight."
Pros: "Crew was great and professional."
Cons: "Entertainment controls were outdated and confusing to operate. There were no charging ports."
Pros: "Crew was pleasant but not attentive to detail. Bypassed is completely for snack and drink towards end of 9 hour flight!"
Cons: "Pay attention to passengers."
Pros: "Being fed was amazing and watching free TV was great!"
Cons: "I wish there were personal fans because it got uncomfortably hot sandwiched between people"
Cons: "I have ordered Wheelchair for my parents which one of my parent didn't get it on Mumbai Airport. When they arrived on Amsterdam Netherlands Airport they were dropped to the gate assigned first and once the gate changed on the fly no body came to help them moving to the new gate assigned which was far away to walk. Nobody even came to tell them that the gate has been changed. It was because of my father's alertness they didn't miss the connecting flight and when my father asked help to members on airport none of them helped my parents and other 4 co passengers which also were on wheel chairs. It was so scary experience for them that they asked me not to book any more flights with Jet Airways. I won't recommend Jet Airways to any of my friends for their parents to travel to USA. I strongly recommend you guys to take a strict action against this. This is so unacceptable."
Pros: "We got to Amsterdam on time"
Cons: "1. Paying for the seats we chose...that will never happen again...I'll fly another airline first. 2. The food was terrible. I have flown KLM for years, this was not what I expected. 3. The plane was very dirty"
Pros: "Nice crew pilot food and beverage"
Cons: "No wifi"
Cons: "I’ve traveled a lot internationally and this was the WORST flight I’ve ever had to endure. I felt like I was being tortured and didn’t sleep at all and so slept when getting into Amsterdam rather than being able to explore the city. I was out $200 for the Airbnb (could’ve stayed in the airport cheaper) and $200 for a dinner cruise I slept through. NEVER AGAIN"
Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "Leg room"
Pros: "Friendly crew."
Cons: "So many people on a 747!!"
Pros: "I bought the Airport tickets for my Russian friend. However customs would not allow her to board the plane unfortunately. That's not Kayaks fault. I would definitely book with Kayak again. Many thanks."
Pros: "Seats were comfortable and there was enough room for hand baggage. I slept during the flight so do not have opinion on entertainment."
Cons: "Not able to charge my digital devices. When serving beverages and food, the same flight attendant missed me a few times. That was annoying but other attendants were very nice."
Pros: "The crew was fantastic! Our needs were constantly being met and just about the time you thought you might want a snack or a meal, the attendants were already heading down the aisle. Because of an allergic reaction, I asked for ice a number of times and the attendants were more than happy to meet my needs."
Cons: "The seats were very close together. The trip from New York to Amsterdam seemed a lot more comfortable than the return flight. The food from NYC JFK was better than the food from Amsterdam. The movie selection on both flights was a little disappointing."
Pros: "Fairly nice flight. 7 hours AMS to JFK. They had ice cream cones for us mid flight and an after dinner cognac if you wished."
Cons: "Not a big fan of paying for a few extra inches of leg room in a better seat after paying for a ticket."
Pros: "He missed it due to having a 32 minute layover, which he ran all the way to board."
Cons: "he had no choice but to look at the closed door of his flight, and wait an additional 7 hours and they didn't even give him a voucher for food. I'm his mother, I'm currently visiting family in Scotland, so couldn't help him much. I'm pretty disgusting and disappointed by the whole experience."
Cons: "The streaming service didn’t work"
Cons: "Super delayed. Could have fixed the issue BEFORE we were sitting on tha plane for TWO hours"
Pros: "crew were absolutely delightful, full of smiles and doing everything to make you comfortable. seats were fine enough and got some work done and a bit of sleep. first lunch was fresh and tasty, but the second, a burger, was edible, but not much more."
Cons: "tv screens are dated so movies are not as crisp as you find in newer planes. you need a 2 prong audio adapter to use your own headphones."
Pros: "Food was good and crew members were very nice"
Cons: "My check in luggage was in very bad condition when I receive it. My clothes were all wet and they got bab by each other’s colour. Many clothes are not in a condition to wear now. Those were expensive and I had a big loss because of that."
Pros: "Excellent very good"
Cons: "Everting so good ex"
Cons: "After more than two hours of delay... Initially the flight takes off was at 8:35... Then 21:20... Then 21:50... Then 22:10. Finally we took off at 22:40... Refund our money klm..."
Pros: "Crew were friendly. Flight was comforyable smooth and on time. Nice snack."
Pros: "Good flights. Good prices."
Pros: "The staff are the best European crews I have encountered. Naturally friendly, professional and fit looking. Nothing is too much trouble"

Cons: "At some point the luggage was lost. here."
Pros: "My bagage broke"
Cons: "I paid extra fee for extra bagage which was tv and i paid insurance my tv broke and no one responces for it"
Pros: "Easy Boarding"
Pros: "Comfort economy well worth the extra."
Pros: "newer plane, good staff"
Cons: "need better and more food options, more often"
Cons: "Not only was there free food but they tried to sell you a bunch of stuff. Not a moments piece."
Cons: "That I was forced to check my baggage. I never received a chain ticket for my luggage. The flight has a 32 hour layover and KLM lost my luggage and it was not found until a week after my arrival back home. I still have not received my bag at this time. The boarding crew was manually tracking who boarded and who didn't. It was a cluster."
Cons: "There weren't too many options. The movie selection was very limited and the tv show were over 20 years old in some cases"
Pros: "Very efficient boarding, fast and professional but warm and friendly. The plane was very clean and quite spacious for a two by two configuration. On time departure and landing and smoothed processing at the other end."
Cons: "Nothing to improve"
Pros: "Speed, crew, and reliability."
Cons: "Food wasn't good, no entertainment or accessory plug ins, and seats were worn out! Not comfortable at all. Great leg room though."
Cons: "Flight delayed, had to take two more flights and was a four hour trip turned into a 12 hour, 4 countries trip"
"Flight were delayed which made me miss all the other flights. Bags are still missing from 2 weeks ago. This airline is worse the Spirit Airlines!"
Cons: "the flight was delayed, boarding was the slowest ever and we received something to drink after 1,5h of flight"
Pros: "Seat reassignment went well. Lounge was a pleasant surprise (highly recommend if you fly out of / through Helsinki)"
Cons: "It makes little sense to be on a priority boarding, when you are checked-in, documents checked and …… then wait for 20 or so minutes standing on your feet waiting for actual boarding to begin"
Pros: "Boarding was ok in Dublin, even though they habitually use one of the poor gates with inadequate seating and entry to the plane from the tarmac, not via a bridge. queing and check in were well managed however."
Cons: "Disembarked at Helsinki unto a bus. Despite landing roughly on time, this antiquated procedure effectively made the flight 20 mins late, as that’s when the passengers got to the terminal."
Pros: "The crew is excellent. Very friendly, professional, and helpful. Both on board and at the desk inside the airport. They listen to your needs and respond the best they can. Seats are comfortable enough for Economy. Good selection of movies to watch. The flight was on time and arrived even a little earlier than expected."
Cons: "The food was filling, but not particularly tasty. For those seated toward the back, there was no choice. Although maybe there was no choice to begin with. Normally, on international flights, for the first (bigger) meal at least, you are given two choices, such as meat or vegetarian, beef or chicken. The food itself wasn't great. The salad was below average on both flight, from and to Chicago. So was the desert. Drinks are offered once with each meal in very small glasses. Although there is a bottle of water from the start."
Pros: "Friendly crew. Food was nice."
Pros: "People, service and food were great. Everyone had free blankets, pI'll own and earbuds. Cost was also great."
Cons: "Seats a little tight."
Pros: "Was great on the way to Helsinki and extremely poor on the return trip."
Cons: "Seat pitch was horrible! Almost as bad as United and American. Very uncomfortable!"
Pros: "Airport was very comfortable to be at, Flight Crew was nice and helpful. Great movie selection to my taste. Plane landed"
Cons: "The temperature during the flight made my experience very uncomfortable. It was way too cold. I know that it could get chilly at the board and do take warm clothes with me just in case, but this was way too cold. Neither blanket nor my stuff helped. Another thing - I was sitting in the raw 50, and at the 49th raw crew ran out of chicken with only pasta left. ))) This happens, I get it. I've had it actually happened to me before on British Airways flights too couple of times. So it's not too big of a deal. I just wish that pasta tasted better)))"
Pros: "The experience of crew and polite behaviour."
Cons: "Not knowing clearly what airline or flight to take. Was not listed on my first initial ticket. Also I could not check in online at all."
Pros: "Crew was awesome. Entertainment was good."
Cons: "Plane was late leaving Helsinki due to broken latch, which made us late getting into Chicago. After landing we waited at least 45 minutes to get to a gate. It took at least 30 minutes to get off the plane and then getting through customs was a nightmare. Arrival board at O'Hare said plane was on time, but listed gate as 0, which of course doesn't exist so our ride home had no idea what was going on or what was taking so long and ended up waiting over three hours for us to get through everything to meet them."
Pros: "The stewardess was really sweet and funny! She was very accomodating even though there was high stress because the flight was late."
Cons: "The flight was 30 minutes late, which made it really hard on a few passengers, myself not included, who had transfers."
Cons: "We had to sit on the runway for a very long time after landing and I missed my connecting flight. It also took a very long time to get a hotel assignment because I was stuck in Chicago overnight. The finnair air agents at ohare were not very understanding or helpful. I was sent from their line to American Airlines and then back again. They were slow. We waited in the line for a long time for someone to come and help us. overall they were not very apologetic regarding the fact that I was stuck there overnight. It took soooo long to get to the hotel. I arrived there well after midnight. Overall it was a very unpleasant experience. I DO NOT UNDERSTAND WHY FLIGHTS ARE BOOKED SO CLOSE TOGETHER. NO LAYOVER TIME IN BETWEEN MEANS MISSED CONNECTIONS! THIS HAPPENED BOTH WAYS ON MY TRIP. VERY ANNOYING"
Pros: "It was interesting that the flight from Helsinki to Chicago served a Indian style dinner comprising of lentils, rice and chickpeas. I liked that too, though I prefer the meditarranean fare. My kids liked the macaroni and meat dinner. The plane was clean and comfortable"
Cons: "The flight attendants could have been a bit more cordial and smiling. The dessert was only a choclate. Would have liked something better. Entertainment needed more variety. Boarding was a bit of a mess as they did not let families board first and were not very accomodative of families with small children, though I had a 9 year old, but there was a family with two very small children and they were not very helpful to them."
Pros: "many choices of films to watch was great too! Like that you served Finnish food!"
Pros: "Entertainment, quick de boarding, food tastes good, free drinks"
Cons: "Extra long boarding process and the air conditioner was broken. We sat there like that for at least 30 minutes. Also, the airline had overbooked so we weren't able to check in the day before and pick our seats. That was a huge inconvenience."
Pros: "Entertainment options were fine. Crew was courteous. Boarding was fast. Flight was on time."
Cons: "Economy seats were more cramped than other international economy flights I have been on. My knees were against the seat in front of me the entire 9-hour flight. There were supposed to be 2 options for meal, but by the time I was served there was only one remaining. The meal itself was passing."
Pros: "Boarding and de-boarding was quick"
Cons: "We had a very rude male flight attendant that argued with us when they didn't have a vegetarian meal for my wife even though we checked that box when buying our tickets. My wife ate two bread rolls for dinner before the next meal 7 hours later. Later, when the second meal was served, he muttered a smart assed reply to my wife after he handed her food to her. After that meal service he offered everyone coffee except us."
Cons: "The entertainment kept shutting off, and the crew had to reset it about 5 times. They were very apologetic, and kept trying until finally getting it fixed."
Pros: "The food was surprisingly pretty good"
Cons: "It was an old plane (A330-300). The seats are not very comfy, not much leg-room, and not very stable (i.e., when others are getting up in front or behind you)"
Pros: "Finnair lost my luggage on my way to Sweden. However, they upgraded my seat to Business class during my flight home from Helsinki. It was great!"
Pros: "The gluten free meal was pretty bad."
Pros: "Crew service is excellent"
Cons: "Sitting in the cramped economy seats was a 9 hour torture"
Cons: "We paid for economy comfort and signed up for the 2x2 seats. Instead we received the 2 seats in the middle of 4. we were more than upset, there is no way we would every request the 2 worst seats in that area and given my husband is 6'6' Did not make for a happy experience."
Cons: "Plane too small. Avoiding Airbus jets from now on!"
Cons: "Wasn't given vegetarian option for food and don't eat meat."
Pros: "The seat back video screen"
Cons: "not enough room...to tight. I'm a smaller person and it was too cramped. The food was inedible."
Cons: "I don't understand when a reason for flight delay is no aircraft. Wasn't it a scheduled flight? The €8 voucher is only enough to buy one glass of juice."
Pros: "The crew was courteous."
Cons: "Another passenger dropped a very heavy suitcase on my head. I have never been afraid for my safety before, but this time I was. I wasn't seriously hurt but what really upsets me is that the other person wasn't even reprimanded. Also, that suitcase was way too heavy and I'm surprised this person was allowed to board the plane with it. Also, boarding was horrible and the flight was late. I will never forget this experience and would avoid flying with Finnair ever again! This was really the worst flight I have ever experienced!"
Cons: "Could not watch any video on screen. Crew tried to reboot my and my partner's screens but they did not work for the 9-hour flight."
Pros: "Friendly and helpful crew"
Cons: "Boarding process was caotic. We were delayed boarding and arriving. No explanation. Meal selection ran out by row 46 (of 57?) Not choosing finnair to fly with again"
Cons: "This flight was delayed 5 and a half hours and did not arrive into Chicago until almost midnight."
Pros: "I was surprised with an amount of drinks and food provided.Everything was delicious, and we were very hungry so imagine our happy faces. The crew was professional in all ways.Flight was smooth and comfortable-applause for the pilots!"
Pros: "Excellent service, professional service, good food that I did not have to pay for. Good flight, would take Finnair again."
Cons: "They answered my question professionally. As I disembarked the plane in Chicago I asked whether Finnair had armed guards. I was not detained, and was not questioned. The crew told me Finnair does not have them but I don't think they appreciated the question."
Pros: "The flight came on time and arrived in Chicago on time. The crew were friendly."
Cons: "The sound was out on my chair, so there was no sound to the movies. The food was really kind of junky and I decided against eating most of it so I wouldn't make myself sick. The meals could really do with more produce and a few more vegan options."
Pros: "Spacious, on time and smooth"
Cons: "There were no vegetarian options and I was unsure where to select a meal preference. This means that I did not eat anything for the duration of the flight....."
Pros: "Good movie selection, frequent water refills, boarding was quick and easy with ample overhead stowage"
Cons: "Seat recline was broken, non-adjustable headrest, older flight crew less tolerant of passenger disrespect, not quite enough bathrooms, food had my stomach in knots"
Pros: "They moved my boyfriend and I from the back two seats on the plane up to the front with four seats across the middle! This was amazing for the long flight and allowed us to be very comfortable throughout the flight. Great service as well with three food servings and constant trash pickup."
Cons: "Woman in front talked endlessly"
Pros: "Plane was nice, new, every seat had an entertainment system. Crew was very nice and did their best to accommodate my needing a gluten free meal. *This was an Iberia plane, not an American Airlines plane."
Cons: "The Iberia web site, and web app were not functioning properly. I want able to save any of my personal information such as phone number or known traveler number. I was unable to select a gluten free meal prior to the flight since the web app and website were not working. I tried calleding Iberia customer support over 10 different times and was never able to speak with a representative. The customer support prior to the flight was non-existent."
Pros: "The dinner tray was actually one of the best I ever had in a plane (except maybe for the bread). Flight was comfortable overall, I was just a little too hot, with no individual air vent."
Cons: "A little too hot, and no WI-FI. Other than that, great flight."
Pros: "Boarded, departed on time arrived early. Food was good snd served timely. Attendents were very friendly"
Pros: "It was an Iberia flight, sold by Finnair. Pretty full but I had two seats by window to myself. I really liked the personal entertainment system at each seat, with lots of choices for viewing and listening, plus usb port for charming my phone. Food was not bad for economy class airplane food. Crew was efficient."
Cons: "A bit cramped - could have used more leg room. But not the worst I've had."
Pros: "It seems a bit unfair to rate Finnair, when the flight was serviced by Iberia...that being said - everyone seemed to be put out by any request or basic question. The movies were really good and (UNLIKE the flight from Chicago to Madrid, where i was told they didn't do that) the stewardess on the flight home didn't mind giving me a second glass of wine."
Cons: "the people at the boarding desk in O'Hare were rude & indifferent. The flight attendants on way to Spain were non-existant The food was comically awful!!! The man at the check-in desk in Madrid could not have been ruder or less helpful (Hopefully for his wife's sake!) The food on the way home again was unfortunate.....that can NOT possibly be the best food any company can find in Spain. Hell - wed have been better off with a cheese & ham plate with some bread!!"
Pros: "The flight was so-so. Cramped seating with mediocre food."
Cons: "The problem I had was the multiple email updates from Kayak with the wrong departure time. Fortunately, I checked with American directly. Even after the flight departed I was getting emails that I still had four hours left. Doesn't make sense."
Cons: "Flight cancelled after 5h at the airport. Impossible to be booked before 5days..."
Cons: "The plane was old. The movies were played in the aisle and the selection was inappropriate/terrible. No kids on the flight and they played a Disney dinosaur movie and the Peanuts movie."
Pros: "I cannot say enough about how kind, caring and paitent the flight crew was with not only me but others I saw around me. Kudos!!!"
Pros: "Great flight, crew was very nice. I would rebook with British airways."
Cons: "The headphone socket didn't work, the screen was tiny, the food was bordering on the inedible, the seating was cramped and uncomfortable, the air was dirty and unhealthy."
"Flight from Chicago to Los Angeles was terrible On my ticket said economy plus which that is what I paid for but didn’t get a seat As economy plus"
Pros: "Fuck Kayak for stealing my money and not allowing me to fly. I hope you lose all your business and force to shutdown."
Cons: "Kayak are nothing but fraud. Pure fraud. Took my money and I didn’t get the chance to travel."
Pros: "No complaints."
Pros: "I've flown SAS a few times and have always been favorably impressed with the service. On this flight we booked the "bare bones" fare and paid extra for checked bags and extra-legroom seats. The overall cost was still better than most other airlines."
Pros: "Crew was amazing, flight was on time, and entertainment was available."
Cons: "They seats were cramped and didn’t have a lot of cushion. The BBQ chicken lunch was not good. There needed to be more frequent water available"
Pros: "The crew was nice and the food was good."
Cons: "More entertainment options"
Pros: "Everything was pleasant as expected except for one thing, mentioned below."
Cons: "45 minutes late taking off. Could have been the airport's fault rather than the airline though. I don't know."
Pros: "Plenty of room on this flight. The plane was about half full."
Cons: "Everyone's breakfast was supposed to be an "egg and bacon" flavored wrap of some sort, but there was absolutely no egg or bacon flavor associated with it. The flavor of bacon is very distinctive. This thing's flavor and texture suggested some sort of very tasteless doughy material, with certainly nothing tasting like egg or bacon inside of it. Ugh."
Pros: "Check in at the airport gate was handled professionally."
Cons: "Bought our seats 2 months in advance. One day before flight, saw our assigned seats were changed, someone had our original seats 31G/H, and we were put in 48C/D. Could not get any assistance to correct the situation until we were at the gate and by that time no comparable seats were available. Also, my husband spilled his drink; one of the attendants said he was too busy to help with cleanup. Fortunately, another attendant came over after my husband went to the galley to again ask for assistance."
Pros: "Nice staff, good leg room, comfortable seats, complimentary hot beverages with refills offered."
Cons: "One seat was wet and steward had to provide blanket for my friend to sit on, one other persons bag got stained as floor was wet in front of her and bottom of middle seat magazine holder was also wet! Also flight was delayed leaving and there was rubbish and chewing gum from previous flights. we had to clean the tables ourselves with wet wipes as they were dirty from previous flights."
Cons: "SAS is a train wreck. everything they told us was misinformation from the first delay (there were 5 delays, one each hour, before they cancelled) The whole time they would not allow ticket changes while we watched available flights take off for 5 hours. We had no say in the rebooking - they just said wait you will get an email. The SAS workers need to be trained - how about putting up a sign that says "this line for parking vouchers ony'ly" when 300 people are lined up for assistance."
Pros: "On time."
Cons: "The cabin crew was detached, and curt."
Pros: "Flight left on time, plane was clean, the entertainment was good, and the food was good. The crew in this flight were polite and responsive."
Pros: "Crew were very pleasant. Flight was smooth, even though did not leave on time & therefore arrived later."
Cons: "More selection of food, more variety of sandwiches and bread used."
Cons: "Old screens and poor movies selection, tight leg space, not really offered much to drink."
Cons: "Flight delayed, had to take 2 other flights to get to the final destination. Arrived at 9pm instead of 2pm."
Cons: "Tried to call sas , no phone answered after 730 in Copenhagen, forced to buy my own ticket to leave early am as their incompetent sas transfer desk couldn’t find me a flight in am yet I was able on kayak.com. They refused to pay for it."
Cons: "I had requested an aisle seat and on both flights to and from Stockholm and Chicago had to sit on the very last row in the middle seat between 2 people who seemed to exceed the "weight allowance" that seem so important now when you flight unless you spend a lot a money on the ticket and it then becomes irrelevant !!"
Pros: "There was absolutely nothing I liked."
Cons: "We didn't have a flight. Our flight was canceled at the airport. We were told 10-15 minutes after our boarding time that there would be a delay, but we should check back in 45 minutes. So, we never made it to Stockholm to take that flight back home."
Pros: "Scandinavian hospitality showed through all the way. Kind, sharp, attractive staff, prompt service."
Cons: "Space is always going to be something I don't like. Meanwhile most of the plane in 1st class sits wide open. Expand business class."
Cons: "since all tickets and passports are checked in advance and do not need to be scanned again when boarding, they really should start boarding from the back of the aircraft (after all the business, first-class, and priority folks) because it would really speed things up the main meal was good, but the snack was much smaller compared to my flight from Chicago to Stockholm"
Pros: "I was very comfortable in the new seats, I did not have to recline or move for over eight hours"
Cons: "still there is not enough legroom for tall persons"
Pros: "Highly efficient, no problems at all."
Cons: "I wouldn't mind a complimentary wine with dinner - other good airlines like to offer me a white wine with my chicken but here you have to pay for it.... Other than that I was happy with my travel!"
Pros: "Cannot think of anything."
Cons: "I am a road warrior and my job requires me to travel 100% of the time around the world. This was the first international flight I've been on where even small snacks such as peanuts or pretzels are for purchase only. Plus the flight attendants seem to be disorganized and in rush. I will never use SAS again."
Cons: "Got delayed 13-hours in an airport with no SAS staff present to communicate anything to all of the passengers. We were not accommodated with hotel vouchers or provided with alternative travel options to our final destinations and missed flights. SAS did not cancel the flight after the first 4-hours of delay which is illegal by EU Standards. None of us were able to leave the airport as we were not told any information about potential flight departure times and it would have been $2000 to re-book with a different airline. No answers were given by SAS over the phone and their staff seemed unaware of any problems."
Cons: "The seat next to me was open and they moved someone over next to me."
Pros: "The movie selection"
Cons: "To be boarded and wait for more than 45 minutes inside the plane for a second pilot."
Cons: "This is my first international flight that didn't include complimentary beverages. No free wine or alcohol, and only ONE complimentary beverage on the entire 9 hour flight! They only came around ONCE with the beverage cart! (and this was like an hour and a half before they served dinner, which didn't include a drink). They also only came around and offered water ONCE on the flight. Normally this would be every 1-2 hours. Also, the flight was delayed by about 2 hours, and they didn't make an announcement until we were about an hour late. Thankfully, I was getting updates from Kayak, or else I wouldn't have even known we were delayed."
Cons: "They charge me €70 for my bag and it should have been free!!"
Cons: "70euro baggage fee at counter check in while flying on SAS. The same fee is 13 Euro if is bag selected at the time of ticket booking. kayak never gave me the option."
Pros: "What didn't I like? The crew was so friendly and helpful. The food was the best airplane food that I have ever eaten (the broccoli still had a crunch!). The seats were very comfortable and I loved the modern look of the plane!"
Pros: "My flight was more pleasant from Stockholm to Chicago because I was able to purchase an upgrade to Plus."
Pros: "The crew and the flight and the booking etc. is all very good and easy. I greatly trust and enjoy SAS"
Cons: "The crew and the flight and the booking etc. is all very good and easy. I greatly trust and enjoy SAS The one hour wait in line directly to get in at the gate is a bit odd, to board the plane. For me the seats are about 2 inches short and legroom and I just don't have space for my legs"
Pros: "The boarding process worked well."
Cons: "The crew didn't seem to care much. The entertainment systems didn't really work and the response was simply deal with it. The food was terrible. The crew did not handle the passengers at all as they were up consistently and taking stuff out of the overhead containers."
Pros: "Space between rows of seats was excellent"
Cons: "No options in menu. No free wine, beer and other spirits."
Pros: "Great food, smooth trip"
Cons: "Could use bigger movie selection"
Pros: "There was enough space for your legs, there were blankets and pillows which is nice for a long flight. The individual entertainment screen is preferable for a long flight, so you can watch a movie of your own choice."
Cons: "There were two diner options, chicken or cod, and I was just given the cod without having an option to choose."
Cons: "SAS does not even offer wine with the meal, you have to pay for it. Additionally they have the strange policy that they give drinks at frost, that is ALL drinks, including the meal drinks, and then comes the meal about half an hour later. The do not offer ANY drinks with the meal."
Pros: "One of the best we've experienced--very comfortable very spacious seats , The crew is very attentive and accommodating. We were fed three times and was offered beverages frequently."
Pros: "They checked my mobility scooter at the plane door, put it underneath and brought it back up to the plane door in Chicago. WHAT service!"
Cons: "I did NOT like the fact that this was NOT true in Copenhagen. I checked my mobility scooter at the plane door, they put it underneath, but was met by a man who said he was going to take me to pick up the scooter (in the baggage claims area--after I was promised in Chicago that it would be at the plane door when I arrived in Copenhagen). Made me get in an enlarged golf cart, and took me to the "transfer area" -- where I had to get into a wheel chair -- for the rest of the journey to the baggage claim area. Then he stood there waiting for a tip that was to NEVER come!"
Pros: "Entertainment system is very good - like 100 movies on demand even games available."
Cons: "Economy seats had little leg room; weren't offered a choice of entrees Make sure you call ahead if you need vegetarian meals."
Pros: "Your entertainment and SAS TV as well as landscape camera were great. Your pilots did a great job with getting us home extra fast inspire of boarding delay. I liked the crew a little more on tbd way to Sweden than on the way to Chicaho"
Cons: "Boarding was a little strange. Not sure why the gate stayed closed up until boarding time so passengers had to stand in line until actual boarding instead of being able to sit and relax. Also not sure why we weren't permitted to check in online like previous."
Pros: "The food is great, the flight attendants are great, and the flight is comfortable."
Cons: "There is little legroom unless you are in first class."
Pros: "I requested a gluten free meal and was happy with it."
Cons: "leg room was a bit tight"
Cons: "We were delayed before boarding, then delayed again upon landing. Hence, we missed our connection and had to fly to Copenhagen and not arrive in Helsinki until after midnight."
Cons: "The flight didn't even exist because of a strike and neither kayak nor SAS informed us the flight was canceled, so we found out after we got to the airport."
Cons: "The crew could ask people who does not have a rush connecting schedule to stay at seat and let those who has a rough schedule to get off first. UA did this, but SAS did not."
Pros: "Everything was great! And it got better because of all the amenities we had because of the delay :)"
Pros: "The seats were comfy and the food was good. Air temperature was pleasant, not too war, or cold."
Cons: "Was no offered water during the flight. We had a bottle of water in the seat pocket but at no point during the flight were we offered additional water. I saw people get up and ask for some but when the flight is 9 hours you would think they would come by once or twice offering some. Other airlines do this and I love it. I was so thirsty when getting off the flight that I downed 2 bottles of water at the airport. They also didn't offer complimentary alcohol. Other international flights offer an alcoholic drink with your meal free of charge and I appreciate that. I have a bit of anxiety when I fly and that helps take the edge off. I was really disappointed in this. Heck, Air Berlin comes around and refills your wine glass multiple times."
"Good Morning - we were unable to take the flight from Dublin to Reykjavik because it was delayed and we couldn't risk missing out connection to Denver. At the beginning of our trip the flight from Reyykjavik to Dublin was canceled without telling us and we had to get a different airline on that leg as well. . . When we called the airline, they were closed and unable to help. When we called Kayak, i couldn't understand the person and they were unable to help as well! We purchased the insurance for the trip and sure hope that we can get some help from Iceland Air and from Kayak."
"I bought insurance and everything cancelled 1 month ahead of time all they gave me was a sorry and no refund back even with premium service attached."
"Poor selection of movies. Perhaps 30 or 40 movies available and none of them "new" in the last 6 or 12 months. Seat was fairly hard -- tough for 6 hour flight from Reykjavik to Chicago!"
Pros: "On time. Good entertainment."
Cons: "No free food, limited beverage service, pushy crew."
Pros: "Crew was very nice, efficient"
Cons: "Boarding in Iceland"
Cons: "Was put on a different flight and had to fly to Germany. Then an 8hour flight to Toronto. Very annyoing and inconvenient"
Pros: "I appreciated that there were options to watch Icelandic movies and listen to Icelandic music."
Cons: "On one leg my entertainment screen didn’t work."
Pros: "Nothing flight to and from Ireland were cancelled"
Pros: "Helpful crew."
Cons: "Disorganized check-in process. Information tableau showed 3 flights on different airlines to be checked in at Turkish Airlines area (#3). After 1 hr in line we were told that IcelandAir hasn't started check-in yet, and it would be at an opposite end of the same counter in a different line. Great!"
Pros: "Comfortable seats and complimentary blanket and pillow were a nice touch."
Cons: "Late boarding call and slow boarding process made flight nearly an hour late taking off. Their staff needs to do a better job getting people on the plane quickly to avoid lateness."
Cons: "Food included in the price for a 6+ hour trip!"
Pros: "Crew was good."
Cons: "Boarding in Reykjavík was a mess. Biggest problem was that the flight was delayed over an hour, but the boarding times were only changed at the gate by ten minutes each time - and with no seating at that gate that meant everyone was standing around for over an hour."
Pros: "The crew was great"
Pros: "The plane was clean and on time"
Cons: "Kayak I did not disclose that neither food nor bags were included in this fare. I triple checked to make sure bags were included in our tickets said economy from kayak. Kayaks information that links To Iceland air shows economy as including one free bag. Ours was Econ light which was $100 per bag"
Pros: "Entertainment was okay, arm rests lift up on all seats to get in and out easily."
Cons: "Boarding was horrible, took 30 minutes each time to get on and off the plane... waited in multiple queues at gate, at door, then in the jet bridge. Woke up to flight attendant grabbing my menu from my seat pocket, then shoving it back without warning even though my personal items were in there..."
Pros: "I slept through this flight. Everything was fine."
Pros: "Smooth flight, plenty of capable crew"
Cons: "Boarding was late for the second time this trip, computer system issues...?"
Pros: "The flight from IAD to KEF was fine, but the flight back was not so good. I liked that they waited for those with connecting flights and the staff was nice."
Cons: "The right half of the plane had no entertainment as the system wasn't working and the crew couldn't fix it. When I checked in I only had the option of a middle seat, so we were 3 cramped in a row, while the lady on the opposite side slept flat across her 3 seats that no one was sitting in."
Pros: "Our flight was delayed so we didn’t have time to talk to anyone at the gate about how we received boarding passes in different rows even though we had already booked seats together. On our flight from MCO to Iceland originally we were hassled by the flight attendants who demanded to see our receipt"
Cons: "The seat assignments and the customer service from the attendants."
Pros: "There was more legroom, seats were more comfortable, staff friendly"
Cons: "Better access to terminal, transfer from London plane to Chicago plane was cumbersome with lots of steps. We had a layover of an hour and a half or so and were required to stand in line to board next flight. My husband and I are older travelers and we look forward to having a few minutes to sit."
Pros: "More space than expected."
Pros: "Everyone was super helpful and made the trip comfortable."
Pros: "Decent selection of movies, more legroom than some carriers."
Cons: "Booked nonstop flights, Icelandair cancelled the flight and booked us with long layovers because our nonstop flight wasn’t filled. No compensation was given despite spending much more time and money than expected. Won’t fly with them again after this experience."
Cons: "Older movies; no modern ones to choose from, limited selection"
Cons: "Lost my bag, took 3 days to deliver it to hotel ruined my holiday."
Pros: "We saw Greenland from the plane with the glacier, very nice! Comfortable plane!"
Cons: "The hostess we’re not friendly..."
Cons: "The connection times are just too short. An hour works fine when there are no delays, but we landed for our connecting flight 10 minutes before departure both times and had to run through the airport and customs."
Cons: "No food"
Cons: "Had to fly to Boston instead of Chicago. Missed connecting flight in Boston."
Cons: "Delayed departure. Checking baggage is expensive!!!"
Pros: "The movies offered were good."
Cons: "When you book a flight on Icelandair through Kayak, Kayak doesn’t tell you weather you’ve booked a ‘Economy light’ or an ‘Economy standard’ or ‘Economy premium’ ticket, it just says Economy. Icelandair offers a free checked bag for Economy standard and everything above, but not for light. We assumed we had standard because Kayak just said ‘Economy’ and found out later we had to pay for an expensive checked bag. Very disappointed in Kayak’s lack of communication and misrepresentation of the ticket we were booking."
Cons: "flight was delayed an hour, another hour to get luggage... main problem, however, was that once i was at FRA airport, the added a $105 surcharge on my luggage because supposedly it was an "economy light" ticket that doesn't allow checked luggage. It wasn't on the way over and it doesn't say anywhere on the ticket. To make things worse, none of the people at the counter were actually Iceland Air employee, so noone was able or willing to tell me anything about this (quote from employee "everything I tell you will be used against me" not sure if she was flippant or scared) Anyway, watch out for them screwing you over where they can"
Pros: "Overall friendly staff and enjoyed the free movies"
Cons: "Long wait on shuttle to airplane"
Pros: "same as above"
Cons: "same as above"
Cons: "Same as above."
Pros: "Inflight entertainment was good with an OK selection of materials (Movies and TV shows)"
Cons: "Seats are way to close together, not leaving any leg room. The aisle seats have narrower than normal room under the seat in front. The middle seats have a large plastic piece under the seat, which takes away about half the height. Also the non-aisle arm rests do not lift up."
Pros: "-Good movie selection -love the USB port for charging phones"
Cons: "-no food included -no space for under the seat storage"
Pros: "Seats were fine, service was friendly and the entertainment system works well."
Cons: "Boarding is chaotic, making changes to tour ticket impossible, especially if you buy via a third party."
Pros: "This was our first flight with Iceland Air and we kind of looked forward to it. On the way oversease we were immediately rebooked onto Swiss Air, before arriving at the airport, because Iceland Air had a delay and knew we would miss our connecting flight to Germany. We were very impressed by this and very happy with Swiss Air, also. On the way back we liked the roomier plane and the relative punctuality of the flights. Our luggage arrived fine and quickly at the end destination, despite the short layover, which often leads to lost luggage."
Cons: "Our biggest complaint is that Iceland Air does not offer meals as part of your ticket on its flights. They expect you to upgrade (and pay) for 'economy comfort' in order to get the meals and seating included in most other regular economy tickets. I don't think that being on a 6.5 hour flight (and a 3.5 hour flight immediately before without chance of making puchases at the airport in between, due to their delay) without a meal being included in your ticket is acceptable practice. They had a meny from which you could purchase food, things like baguette with ham/cheese, salad, oatmeal, instant noodles etc. But the prices for these cheap cafeteria options were insane. From the cheapest ($7 for a small instant oatmeal) to $16-$20 for a salad or small main course you would have to spend an additional 25-35$ per meal per person to get the usual airplane meal that all other airlines I know of include (2 per overseas flight). We did go hungry, eat candy, bought one little oatmeal and pretty much will avoid Iceland Air for that reason in the future. We thought it was outreageous to be asked to spend this amount of money or go without food for over 9 hours."
Pros: "Nice team"
Cons: "No meal included very disappointing. + nothing appealing in menu + oat meal I ordered came out cold and half coocked. IA looks cheap scale really"
Pros: "On time arrival, smooth flight, efficient service, good price."
Cons: "Seats lack sufficient padding in the back...second trip to Iceland, second back ache on the plane. And for a 5.5 hour flight, even a small snack or breakfast item would be appreciated. No food at all unless purchased separately isn't sustainable, even in this market, in my opinion. That and the seats just annoy people."
Pros: "The crew were kind, attentive, and pleasant. The leg room was appreciated"
Cons: "Not even a complimentary snack was offered during the 7 hour flight, let alone a glass of wine or beer. These used to come standard. The entertainment system was also of poor quality in that the audio connection was damaged."
Cons: "our flight home was canceled without any email warning or any sort of message about it. We had to wait in the airport and call multiple people on our own to find out first, what was wrong, and two how to resolve the situation. It was not pleasant after waking up at 4AM to catch the flight in the first place."
Pros: "First, I loved my window seat, and thanks for the clear skies as we flew over my vacation home on a lake in Wisconsin! Also, the functioning screen was a nice distraction when we were clouded over the Greenland/eastern Canada part."
Cons: "PLEASE review and update your food choices. Nothing was healthy and the baguette sandwich had one piece of ham with melty cheese on extremely soggy bread. Had we realized how poor the selection was, we would have grabbed salads and fruits/veggies from the much better fare at the Reykjavik airport. Cheap airline doesn't have to include bad food."
Pros: "Seemed like there was extra leg room, compared to our last flight on American, where my husband's legs were literally touching the seat in front of him when he sat down. I also appreciate when the headrests have those little wing things so it makes it easier to fall asleep in a chair by keeping your head in place. The blankets were cosy. The crew was super efficient. It's the fastest I have ever gotten my drinks on a plane. They also seemed to be very helpful to the family with small children ahead of us, and seemed to help the baby stop crying, which was nice."
Cons: "I wish I knew in advance that we would have had to pay for food so that I could have gotten some food (because in general I assume for transatlantic flights that there are meals included. The boarding process was a bit jumbled, although still pretty efficient, but I think that's because of the airport layout rather than a fault specifically of the airline."
Cons: "We boarded the plan in Iceland outdoors and it was cold and raining with a very strong wind."
Cons: "Seats recline too much resulting in the person in front of me encroaching on my area. There was no free food or snacks on a international flight. The boarding area was a mess and no verbal instructions were given for boarding."
Cons: "This was a six and a half hour flight. Snacks could be purchased, but no meals were served. Other airlines would provide at least one and perhaps two meals on a flight of this length. There was a long delay to board, and no communication from the check in staff"
Cons: "Already confused by a late transfer, the boarding was very unorganized and passengers sat on a full transfer bus for 30 minutes while the employees continued to try and fit more passengers from the transfer onto a packed bus. No one seemed to be in charge to tell the bus to bring the passengers to the plane (literally 100 yards away) and come back fro the remaining passengers."
