Pros: "Seats were super comfortable!"
Pros: "Service, food, comfort, entertainment."
Pros: "The crew was attentive and friendly!"
Pros: "crew was good enough... but seats was not comfortable, screen was broken and in general plane was a bit old for 2019 futures"
Cons: "more space for legs, modern screens"
Cons: "The crew isn’t very friendly, they do not know English very much."
Cons: "I like everything. I know most countries dont like turks. But turkish are best nationality. With big hearts."
Pros: "Crew was awesome! Food was decent! Service rocked!"
Cons: "Flight was delayed for 3 hours! No explanation given!"
Pros: "They are professional all the way. They take great care of their passengers. The food was very good. They made sure we had as a comfortable trip as one can"
Cons: "Plane was hot on the flight going TK 6. Flight on the way back TK 5 was much better."
Cons: "was unable to upgrade tickets in advance off of web site. Others in Greece and Italy tried to assist as well and found same and when calling 800 numbers the calls were not going thru or hold time was overly extreme. Was told at Athens check in to upgrade in Instanbul and to go to transfer desk to get upgrade. An upgrade of $1200.00 Euro's is extreme Being packed like sardines for a 10 plus hour flight is not good. It is also unhealthy. Turkish Airlines should consider something other then the 777 for any international flying."
Cons: "i liked everything"
Pros: "overall, service was great"
Cons: "seats are too narrow"
Cons: "This was the worst I have ever experienced. My flight arrived into Istanbul and 45 minutes until the departure I was told it had already left. I later found out something very similar had happened to a man from London, a couple from Boston, three people from Ghana, and many more that were taken advantage of in an attempt to sell tickets for them to go home. Never in my life have I seen such corruption first hand in a business that claims to be professional. I travel with them roughly twice a year so I'm not really a huge spender when it comes to their service, however I have suggested many to use their airlines. Never again will I make this mistake, and never again will I fly with them. I think I would rather spend the few extra hundred dollars than to have to experience that again. Turkish airlines you have lost my service and my respect."
Pros: "The entertainment system (the movies, songs and ext) The food was good."
Cons: "The seats MUST be updated."
Pros: "The food and quality of the flight was incredible."
Cons: "The boarding process was chaotic, partly due to the airport layout, however it would be great if they were able to sort a less chaotic way to transport business class passengers out to the jets in less cramped busses."
Pros: "Everything you want in an overnight international flight. Enjoyed the food."
Pros: "The meals and in flight entertainment"
Cons: "The seating I needed more leg room"
Cons: "Security lines for US departure way too long. Turkish Airline needs more people to speed up process."
Pros: "Never flying back with this airline"
Cons: "Very bad customer service"
Pros: "Everything was great."
Pros: "Good entertainment selection. Good enough food."
Cons: "Not enough legroom. No need at all for those foot rests."
Pros: "I was upgraded to first class. Awesome flight. Great food"
Pros: "Food was excellent"
Pros: "Best airline food . Great selection of movies And free drinks to boot"
Pros: "bad !!!"
Cons: "All !!"
Pros: "crew, fod, entertainment was great"
Pros: "Crew accommodated at seat change so I had a space between me and the next passenger and I got a row seat."
Cons: "Trying to reclaim our laptops at the end of the trip was a nightmare. They confiscated all electronic devices larger than a cellphone due to new Trump regulations (not their fault). Fine. But they were so disorganized about the process. When trying to reclaim the devices after the flight utter chaos ensued. That was their fault. Passengers were on the verge of violence and it could have been avoided by simply being more organized."
Pros: "food, large touch screen..."
Pros: "The airline was very hospitable and efficient. All flights were on time, boarding and de-boarding were very quick and painless. Crew was extremely helpful and kind. Food was good, seats were comfortable, and entertainment was good. For the money and time spent on this flight we felt we got an extremely good deal and would take this airline again, and recommend."
Cons: "The planes were pretty warm/hot for most of our flights. I'm not sure if air condition was available, but I know some people asked. It did cool down eventually so they must have turned on air or fans, but I know the heat was on at some points which made it a bit uncomfortable for such a long flight."
Pros: "Entertainment was very nice."
Cons: "Bath room was not clean during the flight. Flight attendants can be nicer."
Pros: "Service was amazing! Highly recommend."
Pros: "I would love to fly with them again"
Pros: "as above"
Cons: "as above"
Pros: "Great smooth flight, good food, good movie selection."
Pros: "I didnt receive my baggage."
Pros: "Great customer service and food!"
Cons: "Nothing. They were great!!"
Pros: "Food was fine and entertainment system was great. Watched movies the whole way. We arrived 1 hour early."
Cons: "I was pulled aside for extra security. That was fine but there were a few other passengers that should have been pulled over for extra security besides me. It took an extra 20 minutes for me to board the plane because of this and when I arrived to my seat an Arab woman was sitting in my place and refused to move to the middle seat. She said she could not and would not sit next to a man who was sitting on the other side. If this is a problem from the start, there should be a way to choose a seat according to gender. The stewardess found me another place in front of this woman who kicked my seat the whole way. She even argued with the stewardess about putting her suitcase above her in the rack and security was almost called. There should be something included in the flight information program about being polite to other passengers."
Pros: "Lending was excellent"
Pros: "Transit was okay."
Cons: "Food was not accommodated - no vegetarian food provided."
Cons: "2 hour departure delay."
Cons: "Boarding and airplane age."
Pros: "Crew was great, movie selections were good."
Cons: "No warning or info when we hit a lot of turbulence."
Cons: "Sat 44A. The entire row behind me had 1 adult & 2 children. 2 Hours into the flight, there were 4 children, no adults and the seats were used as a playpen. 7 hours of kicking, punching the screen, opening the window shutter during "sleeping time" as instructed by the crew. Wine was poured on my back, water splashed on the person next to me, children were climbing over my head... etc. No parents or flight attendants could help the situation. Boarding was a mess. 10-15 passengers surrounding me sat anywhere they wanted creating a delay to push back because everyone just sat with their family and disregarded the chaos it created for those individual travelers wanting to sit in "THEIR PROPER SEAT". This was the worst / never ending flying experience I've ever had. I will never fly Turkish Airlines again."
Pros: "The crew was nice and the food was good."
Cons: "More entertainment options"
Pros: "The crew was truly kind and accommodating."
Cons: "The food wasn’t very good. I purchased the WiFi and it was TERRIBLE. I had work projects I was hoping to complete on the trip and I could barely get anything to load beyond email. Total waste of money and effort."
Pros: "Everything!!! Excellent service"
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: "On time."
Cons: "The cabin crew was detached, and curt."
Pros: "Movie selection, warm buns,"
Cons: "no thing to report"
Pros: "The water bottles, pillow, and earbuds were on the seats."
Cons: "The returning flight to the US they did not dim the lights so that it was comfortable to sleep. A red light was shining down on my head most of the trip because I had a window seat. It was very annoying."
Cons: "Delayed flight, missed connection, lost baggage."
Cons: "Only one free soda. Beer and wine for a fee."
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: "The airline staff were so positive and friendly. Really made the long trip easier."
Cons: "Service was poor and seats were uncomfortable. There were only 4 flight attendants for the entire flight. It took over an hour for our food to be served after we received our drinks. The food was not good at all. The movie options were not the best either. Also, it was so hot during the entire flight especially once we landed and taxied for 30 minutes. I flew SAS to Europe and really enjoyed my flight but this experience makes me never want to fly SAS again!"
Pros: "In-flight entertainment had a good variety of options to choose from. Passport control was timely. Food service was also timely and efficient."
Cons: "As with most airplanes, the air was quite cold, but the SAS blanket adequately made things a bit warmer. I'm always puzzled by the fact that once business class and SAS plus passengers board that SAS Go passengers can all then board. It would make more sense to have people board from the back during this time so that people don't block aisles and it makes arranging overhead baggage a bit easier."
Cons: "I paid for internet but it never worked"
Cons: "The seat next to me was open and they moved someone over next to me."
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."
Pros: "Friendly crew. First meal was good."
Cons: "Small movie selection. Second meal/snack not great. Older plane (still had ashtrays in arm rests)."
Pros: "Once again the atmosphere was terrific. The cleanliness of the plane was good. The staff was awesome."
Pros: "Friendly crew, overall excellent flight, excellent food"
Cons: "I have already answered this question. Enough."
Pros: "My flight was more pleasant from Stockholm to Chicago because I was able to purchase an upgrade to Plus."
Pros: "Flights ran on time."
Cons: "Suitcase arrived badly damaged. Crew was rude and inattentive. It was hard to get water during the flight."
Pros: "Wheel chair service excellent."
Cons: "No wet wipes on the food trays !"
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: "tjis flight was on United Airlines. It was nice and simple"
Cons: "the landinf was ROUGH and The plane was very grimy"
Pros: "Everything was good"
Cons: "Everything was good"
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."
Pros: "We were very impressed by the customer service and how comfortable our flight was. I will definitely fly with SAS again."
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: "Much roomier than united"
Pros: "Was upgraded to business class"
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: "Business class upgrade was very nice. Food was good and entertainment options were above par. Loved the quality of the pillows and blankets. Also loved the fresh fruit and candy snacks."
Cons: "The gate agents refused to provide my boarding pass until the entire plane had boarded already. I was one of the last people on. I wasn't given a reason for this or assured I wouldn't be put on a later flight. This caused a lot of stress during my layover."
Pros: "The flight staff was fantastic!"
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."
Cons: "Food wasn't good , change for drinks"
Cons: "Everything...I was not on the flight. The fight was cancelled due to the on-going Swedish pilot strike. The first option SAS provided was getting out in a week. I said that would not work. They then scheduled me on Lufthansa, but due to delays in Frankfurt due to weather we missed out connection to ORD. 4+ hours after standing in endless lines Lufthansa resheduled us the next day. But, it took nearly two days to get home."
Pros: "Everything was great! And it got better because of all the amenities we had because of the delay :)"
Pros: "Very clean and excellent service."
Pros: "The food was good and it was nice to have headphones, blanket and pillow provided."
Cons: "Food wasn't so great."
Cons: "Not getting bumped from a flight set up 2 months ago"
Pros: "I liked the fact that Aer Lingus screwed up so badly that I got to fly United back to Chicago instead of Aer Lingus."
Cons: "They could have gotten us to and from our destination on time. Ten hours late coming in and 24 hours late getting out. They could not have lost our luggage for 5 days. The logistics people haven't a clue. I feel sorry for the customer service people who have to work for this organization."
Cons: "Food was meh...would have rather had a sandwich than the congealed mess that was supposed to be cheese sauce. Needed way more water offered for such a long flight."
Pros: "Seats offered decent space and crew was nice."
Cons: "I called the airlines and requested a special meal, and was only provided it one-way so was left unable to eat anything. Water was free, but would only give you small amounts and was very infrequent. Waiting in the queue to check luggage took over an hour. There were only a few attendants, and at one point all attendants left except for the one that was checking in flight attendants. Awful."
Pros: "Flight was on time."
Cons: "Rude flight personnel. We werent assigned seats by each other when we have a four year old. Personnel was rude when addressing the issue. Very rude flight attendent as well. Flights were not child friendly in regards to beverages. No apple juice or milk. We will never fly Air Lingus again."
Pros: "Crew was professional and polite. Food was tasty. Good entertainment available."
Cons: "Unfortunately, some technical issues prevented us from taking off on time, and we had about an 1 hour and 15 minute delay."
Pros: "Crew members, pilots, food, entertainment."
Cons: "Couldn’t pre print boarding passes."
Cons: "Dublin airport was very confusing! Inconsistent information about gate and flight details in the monitors - was stressful enough that flight was delayed"
Pros: "Staff held the plane 30 minutes to allow us to make the flight."
Cons: "Its hard to sleep on the plane when staff"
Cons: "US pre-clearance involves a second run through security, which required again getting all liquids into one place. I also means arriving another 20 minutes early at Dublin airport. I suppose this affects every carrier from Dublin to US."
Pros: "Service and people were nice enough"
Cons: "Seats are a bit uncomfortable and thin. Less room then normal US domestic flight. Lost my bags."
Pros: "We arrived minutes earlier."
Cons: "The cabin lights after dinner were supposed to go off so people could sleep. The lights were going on and off uncontrollably the last few hours of the flight. Flight attendant said the plane had issues with the "control panel because it was an old plane". The worst part was when a female flight attendant wouldn't move her feet over a few inches while sitting in her chair, so that I (a pregnant woman) could use the closest bathroom to my seat in the back cabin. I had to ask her twice and both times she confirmed "She was on her break and would not move her feet" so that I could use the bathroom. Also note, the seatbelt sign was off but that wasn't even her excuse. The bathrooms were dirty and the toilet seats need to be replaced to be asked to sit on those is degrading!"
Cons: "Tight plane. Curry? Really? Couldn't get boarding pass for partner airline until I got to the airport. Never again! Amateurish airline. Directions from staff made us go through security again."
Pros: "Food was definitely improved!"
Pros: "Seating location was as expected and service was great. We enjoyed the overall flight experience. In hindsight, I did appreciate the customs check in Dublin versus having to do it in Chicago. That ended up being a nice surprise."
Cons: "Not as rushed as with Milan, but still a lot of confusing check points with poor instruction along the way. More of an airport design than anything, but still it was 'unnecessarily' confusing."
Cons: "The entertainment console wasn't working properly, very poor sound, could not access maps or games at all"
Pros: "I paid extra for food and my seat so I don't like giving 5 stars for what I paid for."
Cons: "Changed my friends seat after she paid for bulkhead months ago! The woman in her original seat had just booked her flight two wk's ago!!!! and my friend hurt her knee on the trip and really needed the extra room!!!!"
Pros: "Everything on time, good crew service, good food"
Cons: "Entertainment system issues: slow response, flight info maps didn't work"
Cons: "Seats very uncomfortable with very little padding. I'm glad I went to seat guru.com prior to my flight so I could bring a seat cushion!"
Pros: "Please see end of negative comments."
Cons: "Four hour delay that started out as a one hour delay, then we were told it would be a two hour delay. Ended as four hours. First mechanical and then fuel spill. Since the delay was so long the hallway lights in gate area seemed pre-set to turn off; so they did turn off, leaving travelers in the waiting area in semi-darkness. On the positive, we were each given 7euro food voucher and closest food vender remained open for us. Ground crew maintained their professionalism and good humor... even when all could see jet fuel leaking out of the fuel truck lines attached to the aircraft and runway/taxi/apron staff scrambling as the fire trucks pulled up. Fuel pooled around the truck and formed a riverlet flowing about forty feet .Yikes! ...but in the end we got home safe!"
Cons: "After booking 2 months in advance to be placed at the LAST ROW next to the toilets? I will think long and hard before booking Aer Lingus."
Pros: "Enjoyed Empty seat next to me. Food was good. Good attention for snacks and drinks from flight attendants. Boarding process was orderly and efficient in Dublin."
Cons: "Date: Mon, 11 Sep 2017 09:26:17 -0500 Subject: Re: How was your Aer Lingus flight to Chicago? The Aer Lingus flight was fine, but Vanama, the middle agency that youhave processed my tickets through- caused me a lot of stress. The daybefore my flight, I was trying to check in, and I received a message thatmy reservation was cancelled. I called Vanama, who rudely put me on morethan 30- minute hold on the phone, told me that Aer Lingus would not dealwith them, but the customer directly. I told him(Daniel of Vanama) that Ihave paid for my fare, that it was their responsibility, not mine to dealwith the airline. Never-the-less I tried calling the Airline, severaltimes, and listened to their own voice messages up to 2 in the morning ofthe day of my flight. Lacking sleep, and still not packed, I went to bed, went very early to the Madrid airport. I knew by the look on the AerLingus(Cristina) staff that there was a problem---she went ahead issued mea boarding pass, told me to go to the ticket counter in Dublin, and ask forhelp. After going from one floor to another, and another, to twodifferent staff-the problem sorter at Aer Lingus told me, Vanama never issued the ticket. That they should not have let me board the plane in Madrid, but he said he took care of the mess. Now you want to know how my flight went."
Pros: "The stewards and stewardesses kept a cheery attitude and tried their best to deal with the customer complaints and the constant need of attention of people whose entertainment units didn't work."
Cons: "Unfortunately, I was the unlucky one and had the broken tv and remote set for the entirety of the plane. About 1 in every 3 people however were experiencing issues with their video or audio and had to have their sets rebooted multiple times. This was mainly due to it just being a very old plane and the systems not working anymore. As one of the stewardesses said, she can reboot it, but shes not an engineer. It is majorly time for them to update their interiors."
Pros: "SItting on the aisle near the toilets"
Cons: "Seat curved up on the sides which strained my back & thigh muscles."
Pros: "No one was assigned the seat next to me so I got to slide over from my leg limited seat."
Cons: "Sound quality on movies was terrible. My suitcase made it with me but my golf clubs did not. Still waiting on word about clibs"
Pros: "I liked the level of concern the crew had for making sure we didn't miss our flights after severe delays in Amsterdam."
Cons: "I didn't like the security process. It was redundant and not well thought out."
Pros: "On time. More or less comfortable. Food was fine. Attendants were professional."
Cons: "Limited entertainment; old screen and remote was hard to work."
Pros: "Better than average food is served."
Cons: "As with all air travel, no leg room and it's impossible to sleep if you are at all larger than the average toddler!"
Pros: "All flight attendants were cheery & kind throughout the 8-hour flight."
Cons: "Only downsides were with Dublin airport/U.S. security, so not Aer Lingus's fault."
Pros: "Wonderful, attentive crew, clean, comfortable seating, enough leg room for even a long limbed person. This was economy class!"
Cons: "Not much to say here. It was a great experience. My video screen only worked if it was just at the proper angle and the free earbuds have an horrible sound quality. I had my own...not an issue. Fly Aer Lingus"
Pros: "I liked that they eventually let my wife and I sit together."
Cons: "The tickets we were assigned were separate. I have no idea why you would assign a couple separate seats, but thankfully they were both window seats and excellent bargaining chips. They partnered with United to get us home and only booked out luggage to O'Hare, which was not our final destination. They lost two identical bags along the way from Barcelona to O'Hare. My bet is they're being rifled through in Dublin right now."
Pros: "Great flight on this flight. Reagular earbuds work with entertainment system, seats were very comfortable with a bit of more leg room, again, the food was great."
Pros: "Overall a good experience"
Cons: "Head phones, Real hard to hear sound, very poor quality"
Cons: "Delay after delay for hours and hours, and not even complimentary wine and beer like other airlines. Finally we're provided with a meal voucher after every restaurant in the terminal had already closed"
Pros: "inflight entertainment uptions were good."
Cons: "check-in terrible, website was down, stuck in a window seat for over 9 hours. seats in main cabin are too small."
Pros: "The crew was phenomenal. They were able to handle the plane issues and boarding problems with a smile and did their best to accommodate and make things right but unfortunately had limited resources available to them."
Cons: "Did not like the 2.5 hour delay and plane de-boarding/change - this is something that should have been checked before 200 people were allowed to get on the plane and get situated. Also did not like the fact that I called ahead of time (5 weeks) to request a gluten free meal (which was on my flight to Dublin I will add) and it was not on my return flight to the USA. I was starving and was not able to eat that day because the cafes were closed in Dublin (Christmas eve), no food on plane, and because of a missed layover due to flight delay was scrambling to make the new connection and could not get food. Also, rescheduling for missed connection was a nightmare. Not enough personnel to assist in process and took over an hour just to get re-assignment information. Was sent to wrong gate and almost missed new connection. Then on top of that my luggage was lost and the american airlines operating staff sent me to the wrong terminal to make a claim and it ended up taking 1.5 hours longer than it should have just to submit my claim. This is on Christmas Eve mind you, after everything else that is happened that day on this nightmare of a flight. I realize American Airlines is just a partner airline, but you choose to partner with a company that provides sub-par service and an inability to resolve issues so I suggest finding a new partner if you want your customers to have better overall experiences."
Pros: "My fiancé and I were on our way back from Ireland (where we actually had just gotten engaged!!!) and the flight attendants made our return flight amazing!! They were so nice and congratulatory and even provided us complimentary champagne. I cannot rave enough about the excellent customer service we received!"
Pros: "The crew was friendly. They were efficient and easy to understand."
Cons: "Nothing wrong here."
Pros: "Liked the entertainment screen and choice of shows, movies and music. The extra back pillow was nice. And the prepackaged food was surprisingly good."
Cons: "not enough leg room, I have long legs."
Cons: "I wrote to Aer Lingus many times to change my son's flight (I couldn't book him on the proper flight due to an issue on the Aer Lingus web site). I had to wait on hold for hours, and even though they admitted the mistake was theirs would not change his flight to match ours (which we booked via KAYAK)."
Pros: "Everything was smooth, movie selection was good, food was good."
Cons: "Our flight attendant seemed a bit grouchy the whole flight, but all the other ones were warm and hospitable."
Pros: "My in flight entertainment screen did not work."
Cons: "on flight from London to Dublin my luggage got lost in Dublin terminal. The staff at the connecting flight counter went way out of their way to find it and escort me all the way through Irish customs to the on-site American customs and Immigration. Without their help I would have missed the flight from Dublin to Chicago."
Pros: "Pilots and crew were courteous and professional"
Cons: "Cabin temperature was too cool."
Pros: "The crew were nice and you could tell they were frustrated with the situations we were in as well. The food was pretty good, and entertainment was adequate for the transatlantic flights."
Cons: "We have a total of 4 flights with three legs of our travel. Aer Lingus failed to successfully complete any of them without substantial delays and cancellations. Every flight was botched, and three of them required us to sit on he plane on the runaway for substantial amounts of time. I'll be making a complaint with the Better Business Bureau and never flying with them again. They were abysmal, and the worst experience I've ever had flying."
Cons: "bags were not correctly tagged all the way through from Madrid to Cleveland by partner Iberia."
Pros: "The seats are comfortable and the movie choices were excellent, Both flights were on time."
Cons: "Waited at ORD for 45 minutes for flight check in desk to open. Process should be automated or at least the desk occupied for airports with long TSA lines. I did request decaf coffee and never saw the stewardess again. Precheck was a waste of time. Our group had to wait in line for our baggage tags because online system not coordinated with system in airport. The crew member I had in my aisle, on the return flight, was abrupt! Dinner tray delivery and pick up was slow, at least an hour after receiving the tray. Crew member offered me tea or coffee and assumed I did not want my sandwich when I responded no to those two choices. Crew seems to be distressed when water is requested."
Pros: "It was great to have a selection of shows you could watch for free on your own screen."
Cons: "A lot of the controllers/remotes for the tvs didn't work. combine that with non-sensitive screens made it difficult to navigate menus. Some screens could only be used with the controller so if your controller was one that didn't work, you had to have an attendant reset your whole screen to exit the menu."
Pros: "Crew was very nice, efficient"
Cons: "Boarding in Iceland"
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: "Crew was kind, efficient, and helpful. Seating was very comfortable."
Cons: "Entertainment was OK. Most movies did not have subtitles for the hearing impaired. All movies and TV shows should be accessible to those with sensory disabilities. Not fond of purchase food options."
Cons: "Food included in the price for a 6+ hour trip!"
Pros: "Basic airline."
Cons: "I am fliying international on a 6.5 hour flight. My minimum expectaiton is free wine, beer and two meals. Iceland Air provides none of that. I will definitely try to fly other airlines if I can."
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."
Cons: "On boarding in Iceland"
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: "Price, convenience, crew."
Cons: "Seats a bit tight on their borrowed 767. Plane change in Iceland was tight (which made me a bit nervous) but we made our flights."
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: "Crew were great. Very helpful and friendly"
Cons: "Would have been better if the plane left on time and I didn’t have to miss my connection"
Cons: "Boarding at the airport was a nightmare. There were many other flights boarding at the same time and the lines were mixing together and everyone was confused."
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: "The crew was nice"
Cons: "No new movies for entertainment, lost luggage, has to pay for food"
Cons: "I couldn’t make that flight since my flight from Paris was canceled. I hope I get refunded from the upgrade to business class I paid for."
Pros: "More space than expected."
Cons: "Lost my bag, took 3 days to deliver it to hotel ruined my holiday."
Pros: "Friendly staff and timely departure"
Pros: "Plane had USB ports. Gave out free water bottles."
Cons: "Plane was very hot. Bathrooms very dirty. They refilled water bottles with common large bottle. Very unsanitary! Yuck. Flight was over an hour late arriving in Denver."
Pros: "Crew on board was friendly and accommodating."
Cons: "Boarding at the gate was chaotic Poor landing"
Pros: "A Neal should be included in such a long flight."
Cons: "I had a window seat prebooked and at the gate was given the 'choice' (not really a choice) to change with another passenger for a middle seat so she could sit with her family. That sucked. And they were not the least apologetic."
Cons: "No updates on flight delays"
Pros: "Comfortable, good entertainment, considerate crew"
Cons: "No frills; flight was delayed over an hour"
Pros: "Nothing - I missed it"
Cons: "Missed my flight by 5 minutes. Same thing almost happened on my way to Zürich with a similar connecting flight on Icelandair. This airline is way too inefficient to be scheduling these tight turnaround times, because clearly they cannot handle it. A bottle of water does not compensate for the nearly 24 additional hours of travel time and irritation."
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."
Pros: "Nothing that I can think of..."
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"
Cons: "The seats are so uncomfortable and small. The arm rest also doesn't go up when there was no one in the middle seat - which would have created more room."
Pros: "-Good movie selection -love the USB port for charging phones"
Cons: "-no food included -no space for under the seat storage"
Pros: "The crew and the in seat entertainment units were very nice"
Cons: "Reykjavik airport and Icelandair need to get a grip on their inability to deal with the crowds that are created by the surge in traffic to Iceland. We had to wait in an area the size of another airport's single waiting area with 3 other flights leaving for North America. There were at least 800 people waiting with no clear designation of where to go, no seating, no bathrooms nearby. It's a mess! Airplane seats with minimal padding and very cramped, but unfortunately, what's new?"
Pros: "More relaxed travelling experience that with many other airlines. From check-in right through transfers and to arrival my experience was very positive. Staff were friendly and helpful. There weren't any real occasions where I needed something changed or sorted, which shows that the pre-work was excellent and works. Thank you."
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: "The seats were roomy and comfortable, there was legroom. The plane did not feel overstuffed even though it was a packed flight. I also liked how they gave messages on the monitors. Someone got sick on the flight and the crew was very professional about the whole mess."
Cons: "Boarding was a mess ...not enough room for people to line up. Unclear if you were in the correct line for the flight you needed. More food selections for sale would have been nice, especially fruit and veggies but the sandwich they offered was very good. One crew member was just plain snippy...maybe having a bad day b/c all the others were great!"
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: "My family and I were bumped to First Class for the ride home. Wow!!! Not sure we'll ever go back to coach."
Cons: "There was a delay in boarding, which no one informed us why we were standing in line so long. If someone would of just said the plane was late arriving, that would of helped a lot."
Pros: "The crew was nice and friendly"
Cons: "The flight from Iceland to Chicago was delayed 6 hours, and they kept changing the departure time every 1.5 and 2 hours, and they provided minimal information, and did not repeat this information much. It was disorganized"
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: "Check in at London Gatwick had a huge long snaking line that barely moved, as the gate agents apparently had two speeds: slow and stop. Took forever to inch forward, lucky I arrived almost three hours early, as check in and bag drop almost made me late for my plane. Transferred to another plane in Reykjavik, and had the WORST EXPERIENCE EVER in boarding. Airport is poorly marked, lucky it is small, because I finally figured out where to go. Huge crowd waiting to board, with NO gate agents or other Icelandair employees in sight. FINALLY the line started moving, but no announcement of boarding groups. Since I had an assigned seat I waited until the last in line to board. The first people in line must have sat in the plane for over an hour. The flight was delayed another hour because the luggage was not loaded. Horrible experience."
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: "Iceland air has easy check in, fast boarding, basic seat comfort and leg room. I'm 5'10" and felt adequate room to stretch my legs."
Cons: "Only allow 1 checked luggage overseas, and they ask you to pay for food and beverage."
Pros: "A little more room than standard economy long-haul flights. Entertainment available on all seatbacks. Very friendly flight crew."
Cons: "Wished for free wine but oh well. My seat back screen had to be reset but that was about it."
Pros: "Super nice staff and crew. The gift shop at Keflavik has great creams, scrubs, etc. Good wine selection, good food. Charming safety video and other small touches."
Cons: "Would prefer if business class chairs reclined all the way. Wait on the bus to board the plane was too long"
Cons: "We boarded the plan in Iceland outdoors and it was cold and raining with a very strong wind."
Pros: "Comfortable seats, great salad from Iceland hot spot Glo, nice and helpful service."
Cons: "The boarding process was a mess - they should do it by groups or rows--something. It's mainly an issue of the Reykjavik airport, I think, as there isn't a sufficient waiting area so large lines and bottlenecks easily occur."
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"
Pros: "Service and drinks"
Pros: "The crew."
Cons: "The aircraft: too old! No charging ports, entertainment system horrible. The food was not super."
Cons: "Aer Lingus webpage is terrible. Kayak’s is excellent, but I tried to change seats, it would not let me."
Cons: "We were delayed for an hour in London and then immigration and customs in Chicago were awful"
Pros: "The crew was very good, really polite and nice and helpful. Pilots or the plane's auto landing system did a good touch down in a hard windy condition at Ohare."
Cons: "Cramped seating as usual in economy, but BA's is better than others in most cases. A few extra inches of leg and knee room would make all the difference in the world. Our worst experience is the over zealous highly inefficient very slow tedious carry on bag security system at Heathrow terminal 5."
Cons: "Flight were delayed abnd canceled"
Pros: "Very good crew. Friendly. Smiling. Helpful. Short flight. 50 min."
Pros: "Not being squeezed into a claustrophobic window seat."
Cons: "Nothing to report."
Pros: "Good good, seats comfortable, good entertainment options"
Cons: "Reclining seats meant cramped leg room"
Pros: "Polite crew"
Cons: "Waiting for an hour to disembark"
Pros: "Customer service in London extremely helpful"
Cons: "Left our bags in London"
Pros: "Gate agents good. Same with cabin crew"
Cons: "No AC charging. Legroom in business was tight"
Pros: "I appreciated the brand new seats on the aircraft which were quite comfortable, and the friendly crew who actually were nice enough to have a conversation with. Enjoyed the Marks and Spencer’s food too."
Cons: "The boarding at Dublin airport was not great, masses of crowds from every displaced flight due to snow (not all British Airways, many other airlines adding to the crowd). Was not awful but not fun."
Pros: "The flight attendants were great, helpful and polite. The food was delicious and there was planty leg room. A great airline to fly with and I'd highly recommend them."
Cons: "Nothing, all was great."
Cons: "We did not know it was Finnair until we got to the airport and could not find Brittish Airlines flight. This is on Kayak because none of your information indicated anything except a British Air flight. We asked several people and finally figured it out only they changed the gate at that point and we almost missed the flight after sitting in the airport for three hours"
Pros: "It was awesome how the windows are tinted and you can sometimes control it, and the new TV things on the back of every seat are truly amazing!"
Cons: "WHY is there no dairy free food?! I'm vegan but even for lactose intolerant people with more normal diets - there were absolutely no options! "meatballs and rice or pasta with a cheese sauce" - come ON! It's not that hard to make a vegetarian option that also happens to be dairy free!"
Pros: "The crew were great"
Cons: "The meal served left much to be desired."
Cons: "The seats were way too close. I even paid for an upgrade. My legs were get cramped and the width of the seats were awful!"
Pros: "Excellent service all around. Would definitely fly Iberia again"
Pros: "The flight itself was good and the crew was friendly and attentive"
Cons: "We won't go through Dublin again. The walk from the arrival gate to the maze of bureaucracy ahead was way too long. The airline should have not have that tight a connection knowing all the screening that must be done to board the next flight. We were held up at every entry point, not told what to expect and thus had to prepare for screening on the fly, while hoping our plane would wait for us, which it did and the many people who boarded after us. Entertainment system was slow and non-responsive and my husband's had to be reset to even start to work. One bag left behind, but delivered promptly within days of arrival"
Pros: "The seats were comfortable and roomy."
Cons: "Flight connection in Chicago for flight to Austin was missed. Had to stay the night in Chicago instead of getting home to Austin that day."
Cons: "We were loaded onto a shuttle bus and then stood there (some sat, I could only stand...) for 10+ minutes until the last passenger arrived. Not sure what the airline could do differently there unless it's run a "late person shuttle," and from other passengers' remarks, this was unusual for this transfer."
Pros: "Crew was nice and food was decent. Flight left a little late but made up time in the air so arrived timely."
Cons: "Boarding was chaotic - after having first class and preferred passengers board, it was a free for all for all other passengers, which doesn't make a lot of sense and caused a long line. Due to a malfunctioning piece of equipment, the plane was about 90 degrees during boarding and while waiting for takeoff, which was pretty miserable. Temperature was fine after takeoff. The plane itself was very old, seats were cramped, and the screens for movies/tv (and selections themselves) were very poor, which is disappointing for an 8 hour flight. There were no power hookups either, which my Aer Lingus flight a few days beforehand offered. Finally, the passenger in front of me put his seat back while the plane was boarding, making it a struggle to get into my seat while boarding and to get out of it to let others in my aisle out from time to time for the restroom. Can't really blame the last one on the airline, but it added to the misery."
Pros: "See above"
Cons: "See above"
Pros: "Individual tv stations, great customer service."
Cons: "Not a big snack before we landed."
Cons: "1. Allowed us to book connection but time is limited. You need 5 hours layover to get to gates in London, every gates seem to be requiring to ride a bus. 2. We missed our connection and booked us to the next flight, waited 5 hours. 3. We were assigned to row 54, headache the whole trip, almost throw up at the end. 4. my daughter almost didn't eat because apparently only have chicken curry. My daughter is vegetarian."
Pros: "We had a ton of extra leg room"
Pros: "Efficient boarding, friendly crew, good food, individual entertainment consoles, and plane was not very crowded."
Cons: "Extra charge for items traditionally included on trans-Atlantic flights, entertainment choices dated and limited, assigned seating clumped travelers together instead of spreading them out among available travelers."
Pros: "The staff were prompt is serving food and drinks, good selection of movies on board."
Cons: "Other passengers weren't the best, and unfortunately there were many small children on the plane, which meant it was very noisy."
Pros: "Staff was pleasant."
Cons: "Website didn't work for online checkin. Flight only half full but somehow I was assigned to the coldest seat on the plane with an exit door obstructing legroom. Toilets were out of order and only one was available for most of an eight-hour flight. Airline charged for drinks. Food (chicken stew in a brown gravy?) was repellant. Entertainment choices dated and uninteresting. Luggage lost, with one agent available to slowly help more than 30 people. Luggage missing for over 24 hours. No response from airline. Enough."
Pros: "Staff was cheerful"
Pros: "Everything was fine."
Cons: "Small seats."
Cons: "Did not like that I thought it was a BA flight but was really a EI flight , which means I had to get a boarding pass but I was sure was on BA and almost went to there booking counter to get boarding pass."
Pros: "The food was pretty good"
Cons: "The movie selection was really bad and not updated. They lost my luggage, but not only me, 10 more people luggage. And when we went to reclaim they didn't even have papers for all of us. Really unorganized"
Cons: "Terrible food, no option available online to order special meals, the restrooms were filthy and not looked after. We are never flying either British Airways or Aer Lingus in future. It was a big mistake !"
Pros: "Our original flight was delayed an hour, then 4 hours, then eventually cancelled. The last gate crew gave us no updates other than saying it was being delayed to a maintenance check. We eventually had to rebook our direct flight from ORD to CDG to then ORD to LHR and then to CDG. Because of this delay we missed most of our first day in Paris. The flight crew from LHR to CDG was very polite and friendly! I will be doing business with British Airways again in the near future. I will not be doing business with American Airlines anytime soon. Neither will my friends and family once they find out about my horrible experience with their lackluster customer service."
Cons: "Everything that involved American Airlines and my 7 hour flight delay."
Cons: "The air in the airplane was very cold and no blankets were provided. The aircraft seemed very old. Small movie screens on the ceiling, too far away to watch movie."
Cons: "Good entertainment choice but terrible touch screens"
Cons: "We were late taking off due to the airport and plane not sharing passenger data, and then forced to delay exiting the plane and then forced to sit on a bus rather than enter the terminal."
Pros: "Flight attendants were great."
Cons: "Boarding was a little rough."
Cons: "The seats in standard economy were the worst/most uncomfortable seats I've ever sat in on an international flight."
Pros: "The boarding we good. Ontime."
Cons: "Sitting on the tarmac waiting for a gate for an hour. Food was not great."
Pros: "Very friendly flight crew."
Cons: "Hard brake on the landing."
Cons: "Is way below par when compared to emirates or any other international airlines"
Cons: "Our flights were cancelled without our knowledge. I only found out after calling British Airways. We got the usual 24-hour alert but when I tried to check in online, I could not do it. I had to scramble and spend 40 minutes on the phone from our hotel lobby to finally get the tickets reissued. Two agents assured me that everything was ok. When we arrived at the Dublin Airport, the agents at the BA counter said that there was no record of our tickets being reissued. After furiously typing away for what seemed like forever, one gal finally got us aboard the plane. I purchased the tickets 6 months ago!"
Pros: "I go good service in London with the assist. I liked my seat. All the crew were very helpful. Seat was okay and my travel companions were okay also. The flight was late on arrival in Chicago. But they had wheel chair assist and a nice girl Veronica that stayed with me until I got the shuttle to the Reniassance Hotel in Chicago. Great room and comfortable. Nice to have the dinner and breakfast coupons. I got assist to the airport in the van and help boarding my plane to El Paso. I give British Air ways an excellent star."
Cons: "Just the overnight but British Airways made it fine."
Pros: "A very good flight."
Pros: "Good service from check till off the plane"
