Cons: "Muslim meal does not mean all Muslims eat curry. It’s rediculous that we cant have a decent English breakfast instead you get curry or some form of curry for breakfast, lunch and supper. Your so called Muslim meals are not suitable for kids!! There is no such thing as a Muslim meal either. It’s simply called Halal otherwise then everyone else’s meals should be called Christian or Jewish meals etc."

Cons: "For the whole journey I had a small child kicking, knocking, tapping behind me. Kept waking me up also nearly ten hours of whining. I was genuinely uneasy and uncomfortable for the whole trip. I think there should be a designated child with adult area as I really don’t think this is acceptable. It is stressful enough traveling for 30+ hours this really is not welcome."
Cons: "Flight delay due to connecting flight"
Pros: "I flew premium economy from Hong Kong to Frankfurt on the A340-600. The crew was excellent, attentive and friendly. They always have a great attitude and this has been consistent with my previous experiences with Lufthansa. The seat and meal were average for premium economy, but the crew more than made up for it."

Pros: "The environment was very nice. Relaxed and roomy"
Cons: "Wifi on klm"
Cons: "Transavia does not serve anything complementary, not even water. A flight between two countries that is five hours long must be better than this. I was not aware of Transavia doing that before I booked. I will never fly with them again"
Pros: "Very friendly and responsive crew. Announcements from the Capitan and chief of flight attendants are very informative and comforting. Seat positions: very good leg room (even in economy)!"

Cons: "Trouble checking in regarding a visa issue?.. no other trouble at the other airports.."
Pros: "Nothing to mention"
Cons: "Crew was rude when I asked if there was a vegetarian option for the snack. I did request special meals for the trip. Even if they did not have a vegetarian option, they don't need to be rude!! Boarding was ridiculous. we were supposed to form a line and wait. Would have been a lot better if they boarded by seat numbers. Also they made me check in my fairly small and light carry on bag resulting in its contents arriving broken!"
Pros: "MCR airport Mert & Greet parking was smooth and efficient."
Cons: "Flight was delayed 2 hours due to bad weather. Additional baggage payment to Air Baltic did not show up on the KLM system and we had to pay again. Nowhere to address this with Air Baltic even in Tallin. Handlers seem uninterested and refer us to ‘the website to address the issue.....’"
Pros: "Short flight and being able to escape from drunk belligerent Passenger on previous flight"
Pros: "Efficient boarding system, clearly signposted. Professional staff"
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"
Cons: "Our lougage did not arrive"
Pros: "The staff tried to help me when it was evident we would not arrive on time"
Cons: "The connecting flight is too short of a time. We were late out of LAX and I missed my connection and had to sit in airport for 5 hours. Missed my grandson’s third birthday party. Just made me sad as Travelled from far to try to make it."
Pros: "Crew was good, Seating needs to be updated"
Cons: "seats could recline better and padding could be better."

Cons: "Seats were pretty uncomfortable."
Pros: "The crew was polite and attentive. I flew in the premium cabin and found the seat very comfortable."
Cons: "The check in lines were disorganized and extremely busy. The flight was called to board an hour and a half before departure. However, boarding didn't begin for over an hour. Due to that, I wasn't able to use the lounge, which I had paid to use."
Pros: "Everything turned out well but..."
Cons: "Neither the website nor subsequent communication let me know I could buy dinner or snacks. Nor did I know that blankets and headsets were not provided. It was actually better than having carts blocking the aisles for so long. There was just insufficient information ahead of time"
Cons: "We were traveling with 1.5 year old child and we had to leave our stroller at the entrance to the gate and got it back with the rest of the luggage, needless to say we had to carry our child all the way to the plane and then to the baggage claim. Why can't it be taken and given back at the entrance."
Cons: "One engine failed while in flight. We almost died!!!! No support or replacement flight by Norwegian. Never again"
Pros: "Staff was friendly and helpful- finding the proper terminal was fairly easy even without assistance got the tickets for a great price ( need to use an actual credit card as your bank card WILL NOT work for booking although the bank card will work in the shops with in the airport which made life nice as I was able to get a coffee shortly after exiting the plane"
Cons: "My only complaints are beyond the position and abilities of the air line or staff - although a few of the flight attendants seemed a bit tired"
Cons: "It would be nice if they would serve free food like every other flying company"
Pros: "Good legroom"
Cons: "Flight was delayed by over an hour"
Pros: "Comfort. Seat selection. Price."
Cons: "Crew attitude. Check in."
Pros: "Free wifi was great!"
Cons: "Our flight from VCE to CDG was delayed 30 minutes and the flight from CDG to FLL was early. We missed our check in by TEN MINUTES and were not even allowed to pass the security to speak to someone at a counter. We were told with ZERO empathy that we lost all of our money from the previous flight and we needed to buy another ticket. VERY EXPENSIVE TICKETS. The only VERY EXPENSIVE tickets available had a 6 hour layover IN MOSCOW. This was such a horrible experience. What a way to end our honeymoon. You have utterly destroyed something that was supposed to be a wonderful experience."
Cons: "Free drinks"
Pros: "Crew was friendly but a little impatient at times but helpful. The head rest on the seat was good."
Cons: "The coach seats were narrow and not super comfortable, no room to store under seat. The food options were limited, not even water offered for free. The de boarding process and getting baggage was a mess, I didn’t get out of airport for two hours and very little updates from the airline"
Cons: "Free drinks"
Pros: "brand new plane, simple check in, good food, nice entertainment, comfy seats"
Cons: "Truly, I can't think of anything"
Pros: "Cabin crew were competent"
Cons: "Over three hours late in taking off"
Cons: "Thank you!"
Pros: "Dreamliner is an excellent ride."
Cons: "Food quality is sub-par. Crew service level is minimalist."
Pros: "I am a over weigth and is ok for slim people"
Cons: "Few space for wide"
Pros: "Very efficient!"
Cons: "You got to be kidding! Charging for water!!!"
Cons: "Worst check in experience ever..."
Pros: "Plane seemed rather new and clean. Seat assignment put my husband and I together. Liked having personal screen for entertainment, with easy to see headphone plug-in and usb charging as well."
Cons: "No legroom, thus very cramped for an overnight flight. Wish we had been given a seat on the aisle - there were some empty ones on the flight. I ended up using one for awhile halfway thru flight because center was so cramped."
Cons: "If the crew could have made sure at boarding that passengers uses the right doors to enter the aircraft , that could have avoided passengers walking over each other"
Cons: "We took longer leaving and flying so arrive 1.5 hours later than scheduled. Did not get out of passport control and baggage until 10:20 or 2 full hours after arrival"
Pros: "The seat was comfortable and reclined."
Cons: "We were not offered water at all during the 9 hour flight. The TV did not work. The crew never came around for trash! It was on the floor and in the seat back pouches. There were only two menus for the whole plane."
Pros: "Friendly staff as always, and more leg room than most budget carriers"
Cons: "They announced a 10 minute delay, which lasted for two hours without passengers getting any information, and had to take the bus a long way as the plane had somehow ended up at the other side of the airport. Then once boarded, we sat on the tarmac for at least 30 minutes."
Pros: "Worst boarding- extremely disorganized No food or beverage at all for my 8!hr Trans Atlantic flight Most uncomfortable seats I’ve ever experienced"
Pros: "Premium Flex is well worth the money. Think of it as above economy but below business class. Food was above average on our return flight. Staff were very responsive bringing ordered food and drink items."
Pros: "New plane, clean"
Cons: "I tried to add an additional bag online, but server kept freezing up. Decided to check bag at airport. I was charged 80 Euros instead of 35 shown online. I then had to take the small additional box to another counter, because it wasn’t a suitcase???? Staff were very rude, and at best the crew was indifferent. I have flown all over the world on many airlines, and this was by far the worst experience. I will never fly Norwegian again."
Pros: "Easy check in, friendly staff"
Cons: "Terrible music before take off and after landing"
Cons: "Other passengers keeping their lights on the duration of the flight. This international flight left at 11:30pm and it would have been helpful to beat the jet lag by being able to sleep."
Pros: "Really pleased they fly to Austin,Texas direct from London. They give a very cost effective alternative to BA. We upgraded to Premium for a reasonable fee. We liked the masses of leg room but on a night flight it is impossible for the middle/window passenger to escape as all seats are back with footrests extended. The cabin crew were very good. The plane was new and very clean. Roast beef salad for breakfast was tasty if unusual."
Cons: "Low cost premium is rare, and some cost cutting is understandable. That said....Premium seats weren’t that comfortable. I’m not too tall (6 feet) but they didn’t support my back well. There was no music entertainment so ensure you bring your own. There is plenty of power. The film selection is the same in both directions and pretty limited. Not a problem if you are sleeping though. Note: When upgraded you don’t seem to get all your prepaid extras refunded and we couldn’t choose our seats in Premium. There is no business lounge in Austin. (There was in Gatwick). The Norwegian app never linked to my reservation automatically. Some synchronisation work required there. Unlike other premium flights the drinks service was pretty limited. I didn’t enjoy eating out of a cardboard box, but the food was tasty."
Pros: "Board crew were pleasent and helpful."
Cons: "Plane was dirty."
Pros: "Excellent value flight to Seattle. Very helpful at check in. Brilliant plane."
Cons: "We choose not to pre-book seats or order meals as we felt both were expensive options."
Pros: "The crew was friendly."
Cons: "They didn’t serve meals. You could order snacks but they ran out of almost everything two hours into our twelve hour flight."
Pros: "Nice and ckean airplane. Smooth travel"
Cons: "We didn't know our 11 hour flight didn't have food. And then when we try to order food, on the menu it's all just sandwiches. There's no option for hot food."
Pros: "Crew smiled. Flight left and arrived on time"
Cons: "Bathroom doors slammed and made horrible banging noise that could be heard and felt 5 aisles in each direction. This is on a 787 and not a DC 9. Imagine this sound and vibration 109 plus times on an 11 hour flight. Fresh food and several kinds of liquor sold out in first 90 minutes of takeoff what was left was chips, candy an instant soup. Bottom line: I’ll buy a more expensive ticket on a traditional carrier from now on"
Pros: "Fact that I eventually made it home a day later"
Cons: "The airline company and if I can avoid it in the future, I will not take this airline again!"
Pros: "Plane was clean and modern with tv for every seat"
Cons: "Meal was not included in an 8 hour international flight. Even a water or snack was a price."
Pros: "Nice new planes"
Cons: "The food wasn’t great"
Pros: "Service and overall experience was outstanding."
Cons: "Only graded one star for last two as short ball NA"
Pros: "It's a very nice plane, everything seems new and updated. I like that the cost of the flight didn't break the bank."
Cons: "I don't like that I had to pay for food (being that it's an international flight 8 hours). It's the first international flight and the first flight ever that I've had where they didn't at least offer you a drink. I also didn't like how phony the baggage system was. I had to pay 65 dollars for one bag...because I paid it at the airport vs paying it online. And last but not least I wasn't satisfied that I wasn't able to check in online beforehand, the line was ridiculous."
Cons: "DY 7016 was scheduled to leave JFK on January 7th at 10 PM. We took off at 4 AM. This is unacceptable."
Pros: "I recieved emails informing me of possible disruption to travel to and from airport ie road congestion & weather conditions and recommendations to avoid delays which I thought was a very helpful service."
Cons: "We didn't pre order food but understood snacks could be ordered during flight. The sandwiches had all sold soon after we departed New York. We were lucky enough to buy the last fruit salad. We had nothing else to eat for the entire journey. We booked hand luggage only. Obtaining a boarding pass electronically for myself and my partner was impossible. On the fourth attempt I booked myself in individually and was successfully. I then booked in my partner successfully.We tried to go through departures armed with our boarding pass but we're refused entry. We were redirected back to Norwegian main check in to obtain a happy face stamp on our boarding pass which is obtained after the weight of the luggage has been checked. Unfortunately this means that instead of going straight through departures with hand luggage only we had to go to the main Check in anyway. I agree with checking weight of hand luggage but the process could be improved greatly."
Pros: "Quick flight. Good entertainment Quite spacious Quick boarding."
Cons: "Plane was cold. Not including food Staff aren’t as friendly as other airlines experienced."
Pros: "Flight status is quite on time, seat and plane are nice and new."
Cons: "Make sure you checked bags online 72hrs or more it costs $45/piece but pay at the airport is $65!!! The crew doesn't even offer you water or anything you need to claim for it (at first I didn't ask because I'm afraid they will charge me because we fly low fare.)"
Pros: "Economy Seats were comfortable"
Cons: "Information about system for ordering food was very problematic. I was not informed that I needed to order food 3 online days in advance. I tried to order it while checking in online because I realised only at that point that it was likely I would have to order in advance...I was charged but did not receive what I ordered. One crew member was nice, the others were not. When checking in at the airport the staff desk attendant was very rude. Too many hidden costs. Paying for extras like food and luggage does not make the price economical."
