Cons: "The plane was an older model and very outdated. The flight attendants gave us a choice between chicken or vegetarian pasta. I chose chicken, but it was actually beef.

Cons: "The food and service was better than that of American airlines, but no comparison to food and service of any Asian airlines (including Singapore Airlines, Thai Airways, Japan Airlines, ANA, Korean Airlines).

Worse quality beef on a flight ever, and that's hard to do. In my 1.5 million miles flown, these were the least comfortable, cramped seats I have ever experienced. I am only 5'7", 150lbs, but for the first time ever could not reach my belongings in the under-the-seat space in front of me. Seriously, it was that cramped."

Whe I got on the plane there was plenty of room for my carry on despite the boarding staff saying there wasn't. I offered to upgrade my ticket to business class the attendant at the desk laughed at me. Older woman was very rude, condescending and not accommodating."
Pros: "Crew was kind and helpful."
Cons: "Seats are so narrow and led room. Another bathroom is always a plus."
Cons: "We didn't had entertainment"
Cons: "Flight was delayed 4 hours. Asked 3 different personnel at Zurich airport at no one could help with wifi or how it could be accessed since both wifi scanning machine in Gate E area weren't working.

Pros: "Plane was clean"

Cons: "Munich airport should be improved far more. it took more than 20 mins to find a toilette. they should install more toilette for the travellers."

Pros: "Business class was comfortable."
Cons: "Baggage was lost for 3 days. Very poor customer service. Employees have a lot of attitude. Will NOT fly again."

Cons: "Boarding is stressful. A free for all. I wish they would announce and board one section at a time. I'm traveling with children! I don't want extra stress of people being so pushy. Also,on arrival the bus back to the terminal was similar."
Pros: "It was all great!"
Cons: "way too difficult to try to get exit row seats- I went on line precisely 23 hours before the fight and could not figure out the exit rows- legend said they would be marked by a red line but were not. Very frustrating."
Cons: "I was denied boarding on the Dublin to Munich leg of my connecting flight from Newark to Munich. My ticket was booked through Lufthansa, but the transatlantic leg of my trip was operated by United. When checking in with United in Newark, I received two boarding passes, one for each leg of the trip. I arrived on time in Dublin for my flight to Munich and tried to board the plane for Munich with the boarding pass I had printed in Newark. After scanning my ticket, the Lufthansa employees at the gate informed me that they had no record of me or my plane ticket in their system. I showed them the email confirmation for my ticket, but they still could not find any record of my ticket in their online system. The employees seemed more concerned with boarding all passengers as quickly as possible than assisting me. After being denied boarding, I had to go back through passport control to change my flight, and ended up getting to Munich nearly 6 hours behind schedule and missed an entire day of vacation. A Lufthansa employee told me that out of every partner in the STAR alliance, United is the ONLY airline they have had this problem with. I find this inexcusable, I will be AVOIDING ANY United/Lufthansa connecting flight from now on."

Sent to Newark, NJ & missed the next flight to Dallas because Lufthansa lost my scooter. Someone pulled it by a wire and it doesn't run correctly. VERY BAD EXPERIENCE!!!"
Pros: "the crew was good"

Pros: "Lufthansa service"
Cons: "No entertainment"

Pros: "Lufthansa is one of few airlines in Europe with pure class and excellent service. Even in economy!"

Cons: "Delayed - but made up for later!"
Pros: "The crew was very kind."

Pros: "The food was pretty exceptional for a 2 hr flight."
Pros: "Services is good ."
Cons: "Food can be better"
Pros: "Great atmosphere, crew was excellent!"
Cons: "I’m 6’5”, so legroom can always be a complaint, but this wasn’t too bad. The plane appeared to be fairly old and didn’t have WiFi. Entertainment also was on an older screen which was navigated by using an old in-seat phone."

Pros: "Entertainment options."
Cons: "Service was poor, seat did not recline, and the food was terrible."
Pros: "The flight AMS to MEX was smooth, very helpful personnel on board, we enjoyed a bit more space and the seat seemed a bit more comfortable."
Cons: "Besides the seat relative comfort, it did not recline much at all, i wondered what the extra money (at least $5 or $600) got us. The food, wine/ beer service was same as regular economy, the boarding took place at same time as economy, no drink before take-off if only sparkling water. And the plane was old generation 747 and the entertainment was same vintage: screen was not very bright and the selection of films was poor. No plug to charge electronics. We were disappointed with KLM when comparing with other airline companies offerings when you book in Premium Economy."
Cons: "Poor food, flight attend and finally baggage missing. Overall experience is extremely bad."
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: "Efficient crew"
Cons: "Long, slow line at check in. Not many new movies or tv shows"
Pros: "Comfortable and well laid out seat area"
Cons: "Food was a little substandard for business class"
Pros: "The attendants took great care of us. Super smooth flight."
Pros: "Nice to have a wrap for the snack."
Cons: "Would have preferred boarding by row - back of the flight first so would have been more organized."
Pros: "Arrived Early!"
Cons: "Left Late :-)"
Pros: "Sandwich was incredibly tasty (although not much filling)"
Cons: "2 hours on the tarmac delayed with no explanation. Uncomfortable seats, no leg room. Poor management of seating, there was enough empty seats to have groups together but they were split up. Drinks served from a communal bottle in a polystyrene cup."
Pros: "The aircraft was clean"
Cons: "The food was terrible, wifi was extremely expensive (Delta had free messaging over their wifi)"
Pros: "Good flights. Good prices."
Cons: "Service from airline host Poorly maintained plane Bad food Old entertainment"
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: "They didn’t let us board the plane. Allegedly the plane was changed and make us travel by train!! They offered us a compensation but we haven’t heard from them yet. Not good experience at all."
Pros: "The flight was delayed by 40 minutes initially then a further 20 making it an hour late. Sitting at the gate there was then suddenly a last call to board the flight and a mad rush for everyone to get on. I appreciate that delays happen but the lack of communication ragardinh altered boarding times didn't make the situation any easier"
Cons: "As above"
Pros: "Loved this 747! Crew was professional and food was very good."
Cons: "We had a long wait (25 minutes) at the gate because we were early."
Pros: "The constant supply of food that was offered to you. The crew was nice and always helpful."
Cons: "The process of boarding in Amsterdam was not organized and felt more stressful than it needed to be."
Cons: "Flight delayed, had to take two more flights and was a four hour trip turned into a 12 hour, 4 countries trip"
Pros: "Same as above"
Pros: "Food and drink service"
Cons: "Boarding pass facility"
Cons: "Flight delayed ... Myself and three other colleagues didn't have our luggage show up from KLM flight from Amsterdam to Brussels...even though all of our luggage was labeled "priority". Once in customer service line, we looked and saw that many of the other passengers on our flight also never received their luggage. We estimated that 20-25% of the people on that flight did not receive their luggage as they were in line with us for the same problem. Hard to understand how so many pieces of luggage could have been overlooked and not loaded on our flight. Obviously there is a huge gap in their quality system to ensure mistakes like this are prevented."
Pros: "Service of the staff was great"
Cons: "Turbulence, with all our technology we still cannot avoid this?"
Cons: "Flight was delayed 4 hours. was not able to make connecting flight in Amsterdam. No flights from Amsterdam to final destination in the US. Lost one full day. Had to stay overnight. What a cluster mess. Will never fly with KLM airlines and would not recommend. Will spend a little extra money and fly on other airlines......very poor, disorganized, and horrendous flight experience. Buyer beware."
Pros: "Leg room. Smiles of the cabin crew."
Cons: "Not enough selection of Electronic Dance Music. Lol!"
Pros: "Excellent crew made this flight very enjoyable. A lot of information during the flight about the route, arrival times and clear explanation of the departure delay. Very friendly and attentive."
Cons: "Only 1 drinks round on a 3h flight."
Cons: "Stranded for 48 hours in Africa. Missed 3 flights due to complete incompetence, truly a horrible experience."
Pros: "The Crew was great. Friendly and attentive."
Cons: "Very small seat. Had a big person next to me and was quite uncomfortable"
Pros: "Professional crew"
Cons: "I think for the price I paid for the flight there should at least be a free snack to go with the free drink."
Pros: "The was knowledgeable, but customer acumen sucks."
Cons: "The crew does not acknowledge the passengers. Even when one the crew member was pushing a shopping cart down the aile with the Merchandise for people to purchase, she was just in such a hurry to avoid passengers."
Pros: "Very professional crew"
Cons: "One more pass at the end of flight to pick up more trash, to create less work for cleaning crew."
Cons: "Seats and spaces seemed a tad smaller and less comfortable than other airlines"
Pros: "The movie section and food were very good"
Cons: "The temperature of the flight was out of control it was very hot for the full 9 hr there was something wrong with the plane and the crew was not addressing it."
Cons: "Momondo sold me a so called 'go light' ticket (not disclosed anywhere though) meaning that only 1pc of carry on was allowed! No checked bags unless purchased. Could not see on the price of my ticket that this was the type of new generation low quality tickets. So tired of momondo."
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."
Cons: "We seen other flights go out to the same destination before ours even though everyone should be delayed by the weather. Even flight taking off an hour after our scheduled flight got there a few hours earlier."
Pros: "Great food, typically on time and very prompt. entertainment was good. It was an older plane so the actual screens and monitors or outdated."
Cons: "There were several babies crying for at least 2/3 hours and of course it is not the fault of the crew or airline. But that definitely left a lot of people dissatisfied with an overnight flight in which we are hoping to rest before arriving in Copenhagen. Seats are getting smaller and smaller. Spaces are very tight but that seems to be the norm with all airlines"
Pros: "Loved the service. Nice small plane. Very easy boarding. This is a quick inter-city flight. The plane is small and agile. It did some pretty nimble turns and sharp banking that might be a little too exciting for some."
Pros: "Good crew"
Cons: "Premium economy wasn’t as good as others"
Cons: "Got asked to leave my seat in row 3 for one further back because I couldnt pull up my ticket mid flight to show it was my seat. Their system had me in another row so I missed out on the extra service offered to that row."
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."
Pros: "This airline is punctual and the pilots are good."
Cons: "The service is minimal, you pay for any alcohol and the food is nothing to write home about."
Cons: "Tiny, hard, uncomfortable seats and cramped conditions, just about the worst 8 hours in my life"
Cons: "I didn't like having to buy alcohol or anything extra on an international flight."
Pros: "The crew on-board were polite and did a fairly decent job, with what they had to work with... It's a big long flight of 11+ hours, so tough to deal with so many people. An unexpected surprise was the nice selection of all types of movies to watch and kill time."
Cons: "300+ People on a plane will "radiate" heat, so the temperature inside the cabin after 6 hours was so hot that I was perspiring profusely. I even requested it be adjusted, which it seemed to be for a few minutes but then right back up to 27°C... it is too long of a flight to be that uncomfortable with no adjustments considered. I asked other passengers if they too were "uncomfortable" ALL said yes. This would have solved also in my opinion the screaming small children that were also obviously "irritated" A cooler cabin would have induced a "sleep" environment, none of which I was able to get. Sadly, based on this alone, I will not fly SAS again, unless Business Coach class or 1st Class. I was surprised that an additional Coca-Cola was charged for when some beverages were complimentary... puzzling."
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."
Pros: "Boarding was quick and easy. Decent amount of overhead space. The pilot was friendly. USB ports for charging phones at the seat. Free bottle of water at your seat."
Cons: "No overhead fan. When flight got really hot, no way to moderate temperature. No choice of food at all, unless you are in economy plus. I don't remember the last time that a trans-Atlantic flight had at least a meant, or fish, or vegetarian dish. Usually, at least two or three dishes. On SAS, everything has to be ordered ahead of time. Some of the flight attendants were friendly, some not so friendly. No free alcoholic drinks even with dinner. Limited regular drinks - they are only served with food, aside from that you have to purchase even the non-alcoholic drinks. The food just wasn't very good, even compared to other airline food. Compared to other companies, relatively small selection of entertainment. I had considerably more choice on a domestic flight than on a 9 hr. international SAS flight. Storage pockets at the seat are pretty small."
Pros: "The food"
Cons: "Counter selling me an upgrade that was more expensive than I prefer. I.e., buyers remorse"
Pros: "Friendly staff"
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: "Plane was quite empty"
Cons: "Plane wasn't in the best shape"
Pros: "Crew were good. Plane new and clean."
Cons: "I think the only free drinks are tea and coffee."
Cons: "No food service whatsoever. Not even a bag of pretzels or peanuts. You have to pay for soft drinks. Really? A can of soda costs less than 50 cents. Bathrooms were not cleaned at all. Soap dispenser was empty for the entire duration of the flight. No entertainment."
Cons: "Multiple maintenance delays and groundcrew forgot to load some bags so there was an even further delay. Flight was cramped too."
Pros: "Movie selection"
Cons: "The flight attendants were rude. Not once was water offered. Only one drink cart for >8 flight."
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: "A340 just had a remodel. No media boxes installed under the seats taking up foot room"
Cons: "A very dishonest experience. The booking never made it clear that I was not allowed to check my suitcase and I had to pay € 70 extra both coming and going and thereby paid 1 1/2 times more for my suitcase than for my ticket. I am very disappointed to be 'tricked' in this way and consider it a very dishonest business practice."
Pros: "The cleanliness"
Cons: "I Had checked several times to make sure I had 2 bags included ( standard for US-EU flights) and every time. At the airport I had to pay an extra charge for my second bag which made the flight very expensive and just ruined the whole experience for me"
Pros: "New airbus with good entertainment screenset clean"
Cons: "Delays on boarding (on departing as well as returning home) Damaged luggage"
Pros: "Quick Flight"
Cons: "Just a long layover, but what are you going to do"
Pros: "Did not use their services much but the stewards seemed nice."
Cons: "Flight was delayed, no entertainment, not many food options for people with certain dietary requirements."
Pros: "tjis flight was on United Airlines. It was nice and simple"
Cons: "the landinf was ROUGH and The plane was very grimy"
Cons: "Delayed departure. Temperature in cabin was uncomfortably hot while waiting for departure."
Cons: "Crew not friendly. One was very rude"
Cons: "Could not even PAY for an upgrade due to a meal request, even though I brought my own food - and would waive the meal request. Inedible vegetarian meals in flight. Earbuds didn't work. At least I had my own to use. Plane became stifling warm mid-way. Friendly flight crew does not make up for the terrible gate experience and inflight discomfort. SAS cares about profits not passengers. Plan to take another airline on future flights to Europe."
Cons: "no vegetarian food I am always told should have ordered at booking but this option is always made obscure, difficult or impossible too cramped and plain full to capacity"
Pros: "Was upgraded to business class"
Cons: "Crew service is very poor Flight cleanliness was poor Food served was very low quality Inflight entertainment was very basic"
Pros: "From finding affordable tickets to the moment we left the flight we had a wonderful experience again on SAS. Boarding was simple, we left on time, the flight was smooth and enjoyable, crew and food wonderful. It was a super experience so thank you SAS!"
Cons: "Nothing negative at all."
Pros: "Everything was smooth"
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."
Pros: "The flight was on time; boarding was straightforward."
Cons: "Were informed about the cancelling of our flight 48 hours into the strike. Had to take another airline."

Cons: "Everything was simply perfect"
Pros: "Pilots were very smooth with the controls, especially on landing unlike Ryanair!"
Pros: "Left on time."
Cons: "Everything else. Utterly confusing answers to questions."
Cons: "No food or even water boarding on time but delayed for no reason"
Cons: "Delayed as always"
Pros: "Polite crew and on time as scheduled"
Cons: "No breakfast offer"
Cons: "Paying for coffee??"
Pros: "Why are they flight atendants. So nasty"
Cons: "Lack of leg room, I know it's the safe in economy on all airlines, but it's tough!"
Cons: "On the MIA-DUB flight, my headset/entertainment would keep losing sound. On the DUB-BRU: the flight was almost an hour late. They could have at least given free coffee or water to all of us in Economy."
Pros: "The flight was delayed by a little over an hour, but the pilot managed to make up some time. Airplane was clean enough and crew was friendly."
Cons: "No free coffee"
Cons: "Not even free water"
Pros: "Flight was nice and was told when there would be turbulence"
Cons: "Boarded/left 20 minutes late"
Cons: "We didn't have inflight entertainment at all. 1/43 the tvs were broken. our airplane was changed which we were supposed to be emailed about and never was. Only got 1 soft drink on an 8.5 hr flight."
Cons: "We arrived at Dublin airport two hours before our flight--as instructed--and had to enter an enormous line. Finally, we were instructed to leave the line after almost an hour and a half and were then informed that our tickets had been sold to someone else (we were bumped!). Aer Lingus tried to "normalize" this by explaining that they always "overbook" by 10%. How irresponsible! Instead of arriving in Paris at 4:30 PM (a direct flight) we had to take a flight to London and then to Paris and arrived at 11 PM exhausted (the bus service to Paris had closed down and we had to take a taxi). We will never fly Aer Lingus again. Aer Lingus created the long line to create this very situation!"
Pros: "I had an aisle seat."
Cons: "There was very little leg room, and no comfort for a tired traveler. This was the last leg coming in from Boston and having a 2 hour layover before continuing. The 2 hour trip seemed longer than the 6 hours it took to get to Dublin. The food service never even asked my row if they wanted to buy drinks/ food, even though my seat neighbor clearly put their tables down in anticipation of getting something to eat/ drink. A set of travelers had difficulty comprehending the rules about sitting in the exit row, and the stewardess was not very helpful, but looked angry and exasperated."
Pros: "Aer Lingus is a great airline overall."
Cons: "The movie selections. Too much Sci-fi and/or action adventure. Please mix it up with a variety of genres"
Cons: "Weather delays. No water except for purchase"
Cons: "Guy at check in was rude and insulting and my bag didn't arrive."
Cons: "Airline lost my luggage..."

Cons: "Coffee 3 euros? Pay for everything?"
Pros: "Pleasant crew, efficient boarding, comfortable seats. Food was good as was the wine I purchased."
Cons: "First set of earphones didn't work properly. Second set was better, but sound quality was still weak. Had dual prong outlets, so couldn't use my own. Entertainment offerings were decent, but not great compared to other airlines."
Cons: "Coffee was 3 euros?"
Pros: "Good flight. No problems during check in. Flight left and arrived on-time."

Pros: "It's a real airline, with counters to check in. Staff was very friendly."
Cons: "Not even water for free."
Cons: "Airline lost my luggage."
Cons: "11 hours in Heathrow. I will use another airline just to avoid Heathrow next time. You chnged my itinerary putting me there for 11 hours. This was not my choice"
Pros: "Nice plane, nice crew, the airline with the best cup of tea and it is the only airline with Tayto Crisps."

Pros: "A pleasant flight, good crew."
Cons: "They lost a bag and so far, 36 hours later, have not responded to our recorded messages, which us the only option we've found to reach them."
Pros: "$3 cup of coffee tasted like mud."
Pros: "The flight attendants were kind. I cannot say much about the boarding process. They boarded from the front of the plane to the back (which is the least efficient way of boarding), but I was travelling in a wheelchair, so I received priority boarding."
Cons: "I fell asleep before the plane even took off - it had been a long day. Because of this, I missed the snack and beverage cart. When I awoke, I was very thirsty. I could tell I was dehydrated. I asked the flight attendant for a beverage, and she prepared a glass for me and grabbed a Coke. Then asked for $2.50. I didn't have any money on me. I also have never known a flight to charge for your first non-alcoholic beverage. The seats were cramped. I have short legs, but my knees were an inch or so from touching the seat in front of me. When the person in front of me leant back, they were practically in my lap. I also did not have much space between me and the person beside me. The rows were three deep, and I sat near the window. Getting up to use the restroom, I was practically crawling on the other passengers' laps. There was no in-flight entertainment, but I wouldn't have expected it out of such a short flight (~2 hours from Dublin to Lisbon)."
Pros: "I liked that the flight time was relatively short."
Cons: "The crew seemed to be a bit put out that there were passengers -- as if our presence was a bit of a bother. Kind of odd."
Pros: "Absolutely nothing. Dread the return flight"
Cons: "Plane was to take off at 0740 and finally took off apx at 0850 we missed our train had a hassle changing our tickets. Staff on this plane was exceptionally rude. Couldn't even get a free glass of water. You would think because of the long delay a complimentary beverage would be offered. Would like an upgrade at no cost for the return flight for us"
Cons: "We landed at Logan early, but then had to wait for a gate. We still arrived at the gate a little ahead of schedule."
Cons: "Everything was a cost. Nothing was free. The flight attendant would not bring us a cup of water after a wouldn't pay for the bottle one. My kids where thirsty Airfare is so expensive now days that drinks ( water, milk, juice should not cost anything) and the plane should be cleaned. Sorry."
Pros: "Plenty of room"
Cons: "All was well!"
Pros: "seats were comfortable! No entertainment but I didnt need any so no problem."
Cons: "boarding was delayed and gate area small, cramped"
Pros: "The plane felt fairly new, and I snoozed comfortably (well, as comfortably as it gets) all the way to Berlin. Unlike on Ryanair flights, these seats actually recline. The captain kept us well updated on take-off and landing; when he came out personally and stood with the crew to see us leave the plane at the end, I was hooked."
Cons: "If someone had been sitting in front of me, and reclined (like I did), I may have had them literally in my face. A few more inches between seats would surely help..."
Pros: "No complimentary beverage or snack feels a bit cheap to me, so I gave food a poor rating,a nd comfort as well because I think it affects one's level of comfort whether or not they are offered something to drink."
