Pros: "Once again, the in-flight crew was excellent."
Cons: "The Frankfort airport is a nightmare. They have loooooooong gateways, so when I Finally got through security FOR THE THIRD TIME, it’s a 10 minute, speed-walk to the gate. Again, a flight delay was the only thing that made the connection possible. I made it to the gate with 3 minutes to spare, so no time for the bathroom, no time to get lunch or even a bottle of water, no time period. And at the end of it all, my bag is lost."
Cons: "Comfort was good because flight was not full and I didn't have someone sitting next to me. Otherwise the seats are too cramped and crowded in Economy. Also had to call to find out if I had to pay for seat assignment. Couldn't find information on website. Had difficulty finding correct phone number and getting through to customer service."
Pros: "One of flight attendants lent me her phone charger to charge my phone which absolutely saved and they were just generally very pleasant and easy to interact with."

Cons: "Incorrect advice from check in staff at Dublin re transit visa requirements"
Pros: "On time-well organized!"
Cons: "I was not allowed to take my cabin bag and was forced to check it in at the checkin counter. The reason mentioned to me was the flight is small. Contradictorily, travellers after me in the queue were allowed to take cabin bags."
Pros: "I used to travel on Lufthansa almost exclusively until I had a very disturbing incident in Munich with a flight attendant. I refused to fly Lufthansa for quite a few years after that. That being said, the crew were attentive to passengers and the meals were reasonable. The seats were more comfortable than on LOT and Austrian. There were quite a few decent choices among the media during the flight."
Cons: "During my flight, my cell phone turned on at some point and downloaded some emails using the airplane's data connection. I will be needlessly charged for this. Once I noted that I was logged on, I tried to see if I could do other stuff before quickly logging off. It seems like it was totally worthless."
Pros: "on time"
Pros: "Flight was on time. We boarded and left on time. Flight attendants were friendly and courteous. I was happy to get a complementary sandwich and drink on such a short flight. We arrived at our destination earlier than expected. Seats were no frills, but decent. Overall good experience."
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: "Poor seat assignment young kids separate from Mother. Checking in person change the the seats without informing us."
Cons: "Will newer agan fly business with Lufthansa!! It's not business at all just regular econom seats with short leg room and casual service. They should be sorry for that kind of business!!"
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."
Cons: "Unfriendly crew"
Pros: "Crew was friendly"
Cons: "Flight delayed by over 3 hours, inflight entertainment did not work"
Pros: "Crew was very friendly and eager to help, as I was traveling alone with a baby"

Cons: "It will be hard to travel with another airline"
Cons: "Our luggage was the last to arrive planeside from our late flight from Vancouver. We saw out luggage on the cart next to the plane, but apparently someone decided not to put it on the plane. We are now at least 24 hours without our luggage (we still don't have it) and cannot take advantage of our very expensive vacation. I must say, we will stop using Lufthansa and all partner airlines. This is completely unacceptable. I have received no communication at all from Lufthansa to explain why our bags were not loaded onto the plane, even though we saw them out the window, on the cart, next to the plane, before door closure. I am wondering if someone at Lufthansa decided it would be fun to ruin our vacation?"
Pros: "I liked when I thought I had my new booking."
Cons: "When I found out that I was a week late for my flight. Argh! Stuck in the airport at the moment."
Pros: "Good entertainment selection"

Pros: "New crew on first flight but they we're even"
Cons: "Not much. Left sitting on a plane for over an hour & 1/2. Then taken into a door where I illegally entered the country. My passports seized. No other flight available to Dallas. 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"
Cons: "the food was poor"
Pros: "Flight was only about 60% full. Wine was offered with each beverage pass....also cognac offered after dinner. Plane was newer,comfortable. Lots of legroom in our "more legroom" upgraded seat. Departed on time and arrived early."
Cons: "Goulash meal meat was gristle and inedible. Other food was O.K."
Cons: "2 1/2 hour wait while boarded then missed flights in toronto. Toronto airport a mess! Unclear directions and procedues."
Cons: "I wasn't even on this airline my booking reference said that I was. I had this airlines flight number I go to the gate to check in, and then for me I'm on Air Canada. This was a mass from the start I will never use this airline or Air Canada again they ruin my login and told me it's still usable we had a delayed for three hours on the plane. Never never again!"
Pros: "flight crew was very nice,"
Pros: "Roomy flight, professional crew, great service."

Cons: "Delayed - but made up for later!"
Pros: "The crew was very kind."
Cons: "There was a lack of communication with boarding and there was no one to check us in at the airport. We are paying you thousands of dollars, perhaps you could have someone check people in."

Pros: "The food was pretty exceptional for a 2 hr flight."
Pros: "The crew was very nice , and very comfortable seats ."

Cons: "There was three hour delay Boarding was chaotic and very bad organizedMain course was good, but poor snack Entertainment program very poor"
Pros: "- Great timing for the flight, had a connection and it was stress-free to get through - Nintendo-type controller to play like, two games they had to choose from (clearly an old plane) - Meals were decent"
Cons: "- The plane was older - it had the ash-trays in the armrests full of dust and god knows what else, gross. - No wifi, I was planning to get some work done because it was an international flight so that was a bust - Limited entertainment selection. Some of the newer ones have more movie/TV selections"
Pros: "Seats ok. Crew very nice."
Cons: "Short flight but entertainment is always a nice thing to have"
Pros: "Everything was pleasant as expected except for one thing, mentioned below."
Cons: "45 minutes late taking off. Could have been the airport's fault rather than the airline though. I don't know."

Pros: "Excellent short flight"
Cons: "Did not eat"
Pros: "The airplane clean ,Food good etc."
Pros: "Beautiful airport, nice merchandise and merchants.flights on time."
Cons: "In Copenhagen I left my iphone in the bin during security check. Half an hour later i heard my name on P.A. system. The message was muffled and never repeated. I ran in circles trying to retrieve my phone and I got very poor assistance. I had to be deboarded an boarded again and barely made my flight. I was misinformed several times and ran around the airport with my hand luggage like a chicken without a head. Why wasn’t it brought to my gate? They had my info."
Pros: "Love the service on Alaska. Crew were incredibly nice!"
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: "Nice staff, comfortable seats with good room, complimentary beverages with refills offered."
Cons: "Late leaving, when boarding in CPH had to wait in extremely hot area once past the desk where our boarding passes were scanned and then the area where we had to queue just prior to boarding the plane was glass and therefore extremely hot. The worst issue was that there was one family with extremely loud children with the parents doing nothing. I saw a steward way up the plane looking down at them at one stage while serving another passenger but she did nothing. I like children but this was constant with the father actually encouraging the children to make more noise once he realised that other passengers were annoyed. There were plenty of other children on the plane who were behaving. Although SAS staff were aware of this they did nothing to ensure the comfort of the other passengers. One friend of mine stood for about 40 minutes at the back of the plane and another for about 20 minutes to get away from this constant noise as it was so loud and persistent. I had to listen to music to block it out.SAS staff should have intervened because this was very loud and as I have said constant i.e. every few seconds for most of the flight."
Pros: "Flight arrived on time. No issues."
Cons: "Standard flight - nothing special I wish they would have done a garbage run prior to landing."
Pros: "On time good food excellent entertainment clean plane good crew"
Cons: "Our suitcase was damaged. Because we did not notice this until we got to our apartment we found that it is not possible to make acclaim, rather you just have to make a general complaint with a response according to SAS likely in 3 weeks. This process took over an hour of my time. The three tel numbers given to report damage are in Scandinavia and not much use when travelling within the UK."
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: "We traveled with our 11 month old and the crew was super helpful. It was an 8.5hr flight, we got a middle seat to give him space to play and the staff had a lot of fun engaging with him. They even gave him a couple of toys to play with. Food was just ok, but better than most airline meals I've had. We flew Premium Economy which was a comfortable experience as well."
Cons: "Checking in took too long, but that's more due to the new US-bound flight restrictions and process that's supporting that."
Pros: "The plane from SFO to Coppenhaggen was modern and clean. The flight crew was friendly and efficient. I would fly with them again."
Cons: "The seat was not well padded for the bottom.@9 m"
Pros: "Very friendly crew Intime departure and arrival"
Cons: "It was extremely cold in the plane (I was in row 32). Many passengers had the blue blanket wrapped around them even over their head"
Pros: "I'm surprised this is called a budget airline (or am I mistaken?!). Anyway, everything was great. The entertainment options were limited compared to Turkish, Emirates, Lufthansa or Qatar, but enough for a 7 hour flight and then some. Also, I liked that there was a bottle of water on each seat for people to hydrate. Very important, and I haven't seen any other airline do it."
Cons: "Nothing stands out really. I'm likely going to fly them again."
Pros: "I loved that there were a lot of different movies, TV shows, games, music, and more to choose from- all for free! Then there was a dinner- not bad at all-, a snack later on, and breakfast too, all included. Headphones if you needed them ( lifesaver there as I had temporary misplaced mine), a blanket, and a pillow. The crew was really polite, and there was never more than one person in line for the bathroom."
Pros: "Crew were good. Plane new and clean."
Cons: "I think the only free drinks are tea and coffee."
Pros: "I was running late for the flight due to bad traffic en route to the airport. Nonetheless, the staff was very understanding, and called me to the gate once I finally arrived to assign me a seat since I wasn't given one when I checked in online. They upgraded me without my asking... to an economy plus exit row, so I had lots of room during the 8 hour flight to Copenhagen. The plane was new - an Airbus A330 - and the flight crew was friendly and helpful."
Cons: "flight was delay for 30 mins. then another 30 mins because there are 15 passenger that miss their flight due to delay or there is not enough flight to transport them to Longyearbyen the next day. We are force to wait a total of more then a hour to board them and stuck on plane. And ofcuase when we landed. My SAS go luggage is last to come out because the late arrival passengers luggage all come out ahead. It is a most terrible experience I ever had with a SAS flight. Might as well consider flying norwegian airline!"
Pros: "Good leg room. Tasty meals. A good variety of entertainment options."
Pros: "Waited for us when flight showed up late"
Cons: "Cramped cabin"
Cons: "Cattle call boarding in a culture where standing in que is unheard of."
Cons: "We paid over $75 for each piece of checked luggage. We could have saved 40% by pre-purchase but were not warned when purchasing our flights for almost the same price as the cost of the luggage."
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: "Flight was on-time, fast, efficient boarding, on-time arrival."
Cons: "SAS is really running down quality of service. An old bird that was showing its age and interior wear. No in-flight entertainment options. Food / beverage options are not on par with expectations or other airlines. Only no-cost drink options are coffee or tea. Juice, soda, water - all for a fee. Snacks available for sale include potato chips and nuts. It's 2017 folks - up your game!"
Pros: "No problems, great crew, easy check in and on time!"
Pros: "The flight wasn't late and didn't crash."
Cons: "I paid for a business class ticket and was jammed in like a sardine no different than economy, then told "you get a lunch for free". Hundreds of dollars more for a $5.00 lunch is NOT why I booked business class!"
Pros: "The crew and the flight and the booking etc. is all very good and easy. I greatly trust and enjoy SAS"
Cons: "The crew and the flight and the booking etc. is all very good and easy. I greatly trust and enjoy SAS The one hour wait in line directly to get in at the gate is a bit odd, to board the plane. For me the seats are about 2 inches short and legroom and I just don't have space for my legs"
Pros: "The food was quite good on the international trip. Thought the pilots were excellent on all flights. Take offs and landings were very smooth."
Cons: "On the domestic flight you only got a drink."
Cons: "Delayed departure. Temperature in cabin was uncomfortably hot while waiting for departure."
Pros: "The entertainment system is among the best of airlines."
Cons: "The Lufthansa representative in Frankfurt made me check one of my bags, when SAS clearly said I was allowed to have one carry-on and one personal item. This was not a Lufthansa flight, but the rude attendant insisted on enforcing Lufthansa rules on an SAS flight and refused to even allow me to voice an objection. I will not fly Lufthansa ever after this. SAS should have its own representatives who understand customer service at all gates."
Pros: "they let us sleep, keeping the light and announcements off during most of the flight"
Cons: "staff at the gate kept changing my seat without my consent. i had reserved a seat online and they ended up seating me aomewhere else."
Pros: "Reasonably on time"
Cons: "No entertainment at all, no food at all, unless you are willing to pay 10 euros for a sad looking sandwich. You got water or coffe, or you overpaid. And it's not like they're giving the seats away!"
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 plane was relatively quiet"
Cons: "I am 5' 10" tall and I could not fit into my seat. Reserved my tickets almost a year in advance and paid twice the normal fare to have an emergency exit row, instead got the row in front of it that has no reclining seats!!! SAS's cramping passengers into a sardine can strategy really hit a new low."
Cons: "My computer/media screen did not work the whole trip, nor did audio -just heard loud screeching when I plugged in my headphones. Also, the seats were very uncomfortable. Additionally, I thought we had paid for two checked bags in advance but was told we did not and so had to pay for them at the airport. I was very focused on making sure I had two checked bags paid for online when purchasing the tickets. I don't know if it's some glitch in your website or that it was just confusingly worded/phrased, but I did think I had bought the higher level package that allowed for two checked bags."
Cons: "Food wasn't good , change for drinks"
Pros: "- Good selection of movies and very surprised and happy they're not censored! :-))) - Seats were fairly comfortable. - The boarding/seating process was good because when other people started to cut-in-line, SAS folks reiterated to those cutting in line that they need to go back to the end of the line and wait as others were waiting before them."
Cons: "- Only having one soft drink during the whole 9hr flight for SAS Go. Only coffee, tea and water are free. - Was thinking of upgrading because I had one extra baggage, but was told that I still wouldn't be eligible for one free extra baggage if I upgraded to SAS Plus NOR SAS Business - There was only one option for dinner, which was Meatballs. The meatballs were worse than IKEA ones. I'd rather eat the IKEA meatballs than those. I usually finish my main meal and I didn't eat it because it was that bad."
Pros: "Flight was cancelled but i didn't receive email notification from SAS Moreover i was able to check-in on SAS website and print boarding pass 10 ours before flight (and after Kayak sent me notification that flight "may be cancelled"), and they sent me confirmation and everything. When i arrived in airport i realized flight was actually cancelled. And i tried to call and nobody picked up the pphone. I was travelling from Moscow."
Pros: "Most flight attendants were very friendly and accommodating. Bathrooms were cleaner than most other airlines. Flight was on time."
Cons: "One male attendant was not so friendly. Seemed to have an attitude that it was beneath him to have to serve us. Food could use some improvement. Thought we would have a choice between two entrees, but were served the chicken without any explanation."
"Good Morning - we were unable to take the flight from Dublin to Reykjavik because it was delayed and we couldn't risk missing out connection to Denver. At the beginning of our trip the flight from Reyykjavik to Dublin was canceled without telling us and we had to get a different airline on that leg as well. . . When we called the airline, they were closed and unable to help. When we called Kayak, i couldn't understand the person and they were unable to help as well! We purchased the insurance for the trip and sure hope that we can get some help from Iceland Air and from Kayak."
Pros: "Got assisted to the plane by airport staff as I was in a wheelchair"
Cons: "Food on board was awful. Ordered hamburger but not availabe having already pre paid. Pizza was poor quality and had no taste. Range of food disappointing"
Pros: "Crew was very nice, efficient"
Cons: "Boarding in Iceland"
Cons: "Was put on a different flight and had to fly to Germany. Then an 8hour flight to Toronto. Very annyoing and inconvenient"
Pros: "Nothing flight to and from Ireland were cancelled"
Pros: "Helpful crew."
Cons: "Disorganized check-in process. Information tableau showed 3 flights on different airlines to be checked in at Turkish Airlines area (#3). After 1 hr in line we were told that IcelandAir hasn't started check-in yet, and it would be at an opposite end of the same counter in a different line. Great!"
Pros: "Comfortable seats and complimentary blanket and pillow were a nice touch."
Cons: "Late boarding call and slow boarding process made flight nearly an hour late taking off. Their staff needs to do a better job getting people on the plane quickly to avoid lateness."
Pros: "I missed my connection from Iceland to USA due to delayed departure from Ireland"
Cons: "Food included in the price for a 6+ hour trip!"
Cons: "On boarding in Iceland"
Cons: "The attendants were professional and friendly. The plane was clean, the seats in coach were fine. Just remember to bring your own food and beverage as they don’t have food unless you pre order."
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: "Not mucj"
Cons: "Entertainment screens for about a third of the plane didn’t work and staff didn’t seem to care. Boarding took forever and plane left about 45 minutes late."
Pros: "Smooth flight, plenty of capable crew"
Cons: "Boarding was late for the second time this trip, computer system issues...?"
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"
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 seat was comfortable"
Cons: "the food"
Pros: "More space than expected."
Pros: "Great respectful & kind crew, comfortable plane."
Pros: "Everyone was super helpful and made the trip comfortable."
Pros: "The flight was on schedule."
Cons: "Not very friendly crew and slow on service."
Pros: "Some of the staff was nice"
Cons: "The plane was very hot, did not serve food even a snack on a 6 hour+ flight. There was absolutely no one at the ticket counter to help. Will not fly again!"
Cons: "Older movies; no modern ones to choose from, limited selection"
Cons: "Lost my bag, took 3 days to deliver it to hotel ruined my holiday."
Pros: "Great crew, and half decent refreshments and seats."
Pros: "I enjoyed my flight with Iceland air. What I especially liked was how polite and helpful at the staff members were. The plane was also very nice and clean."
Pros: "Staff was excellent."
Pros: "Crew seemed okay comparatively to other airlines/crews."
Cons: "airport delays up to 2 hours, not knowing which gate and changing it all the time in Reykjavik, seating was hyper cramped, no food to compensate for the extra long trip, my carry on was taken from me even though it easily fit in overhead (it's a legal size duffel bag). I was exhausted after spending well over 14 hours in airports and 2 planes from Paris to DC."
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: "Nice leg Space"
Cons: "They were missing lots of food on the menu. There was an delay but we didn’t get any info or apology."
Pros: "Straightforward and friendly crew."
Cons: "The layout of the terminal in Reykjavik is obviously under renovation, but they could still make it look presentable"
Cons: "It was a very uncomfortable flight as there was a box under the seat in front of seat 26E so I could not get comfortable and I’m only 5’7”. As it’s in the middle of the plane they we were the last row to be served"
Pros: "smooth boarding, comfortable, smooth flight, friendly crew, clean bathroom"
Cons: "The gate location was confusing. Only paid food was available."
Pros: "Crew and food was nice If you are a Saga class passenger like my wife and I left something to be desired"
Cons: "Boarding procee in Iceland for Saga class means you get called up first to wait in line for bus to plane. There you wait for others to check in the gate. Then you proceed to board the bus. Saga class was with everyone. By the time we got on board waiting to climb the stairs we were soaked from the rain. Our bags were marked priority yet to our dismay it took 20 minutes for our bags to come on the carosill after others started getting there bags. Glad We had those priority stickers as we were clearly in the last of the bunch. 0"
Pros: "A Neal should be included in such a long flight."
Pros: "The plane was nice and I truly loved the movies offered on board."
Cons: "I wasn’t aware of the fact you need to order your food prior to departure to get it on board."
Cons: "The booking was too tight. We BARELY made our flight to Minneapolis and the airport in Rehkjavik is way too small for the number of flights coming in at the same time. We were in a winding, snakelike line for security that went on forever and then when we got through, the lines for the gates were mixed up, without proper seating areas and separation. People were in the wrong lines because it was too crowded to see where we should be. This is a POORLY run airport that needs significant expansion and improvement."
Pros: "Always love the food and the crew."
Cons: "Overall, boarding process is chaotic and can be frustrating"
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."
Pros: "Comfortable, good entertainment, considerate crew"
Cons: "No frills; flight was delayed over an hour"
Cons: "Delayed departure. Checking baggage is expensive!!!"
Cons: "The pilots was great, but the baggage was partially lost and we had to wait an hour while they found the rest and loaded it. For that hour, the airport positioned another jet with its engines firing into our air intake, so we spent the whole time coughing in fuel fumes. The crew had forgotten to put blankets out for about 1/3 of the plane on the overnight flight and didn't have enough to go around when the mistake was pointed out to them. Also, the check-in kiosks and web check-in were both faulty, so the desk assistants were overworked. Overall, the service was well intentioned, but inept. Not worth the cheaper ticket price."
Cons: "food and drink is a nickel and diam which doesn’t go with the brand."
Cons: "There was no food on the flight provided"
Pros: "Punctual and no toilet line ups"
Cons: "Seats were hard and food was very expensive."
Pros: "I need a cheap flight and at the time that was my best bet. Didn't have a bad time but next time I will fly direct from the US."
Cons: "Seats were so so, leg room was barely substantial. Iceland is expensive even on a layover, thankfully it wasn't very long."
Cons: "I've travelled to 40 countries in my life and this is the FIRST time on a international flight that I was NOT given ( free ) food."
Pros: "Flight was fine, crew was fine."
Cons: "There were complications during checkin that resulted in everyone waiting on line for three hours while the employees tried to figure it out. They couldn't and eventually hand wrote boarding passes. In my opinion - they waited too long to make the decision to do this (over two and 1/2 hours us waiting in line no movement). Because of this, our flight was delayed. We made our connecting flight but our luggage did not. We took Icelander partner Swissair to Amsterdam. We went to the Swissair lost luggage office and spoke with a gentleman who informed us that our luggage was still in Reykjavik and would be flown to Amsterdam the next day (this was Monday at noon). I told him that we were not going to be in Amsterdam, but we're driving that afternoon to Koblenz, and would be staying there until Friday. He assured me that they would fly our luggage to Frankfurt and deliver it to our apartment the next day. I gave him our information, and he gave me a baggage claim with the phone number to check on the status. He told me they would contact me by phone the next day for delivery and that we would have to be present to sign for the luggage. We did not use this as an opportunity to go on a shopping spree. Instead, we bought some essentials (soap, toothpaste, toothbrushes, shampoo, underwear and a shirt) knowing that we had laundry facilities at our disposal. We did not receive our luggage on Tuesday. I called the number given to me Tuesday afternoon (after not hearing from the airline all day) and was told that my luggage had been shipped to Amsterdam....not Frankfurt. I explained again that we were not in Amsterdam and would not be back there until Friday. I was assured that they were putting the baggage on the next flight to Frankfurt via KLM airlines and we would have it the next day. On Wednesday afternoon, I again called the number after not hearing from them all day. I was informed now that our bags made it to Frankfurt airport but would not be delivered until the next day, Thursday. We had been wearing the same clothes since we left NY on Sunday. I asked to speak to the gentleman's manager. I wanted assurances that we would receive our luggage as no one, up to that point, from any airline (Icelandair or Swissair) had followed up with me. I was the one calling each day. He was very hostile and told us his manager was not there and there was no one else we could speak to. There was no other number we could call to discuss our claim. He got defensive and his answer was that the baggage was in KLM's hands and he could not answer for it anymore. Yet I wanted to know why I had not received an update each day, why after three days we did not have our luggage, and why none of them (Icelandair or Swissair) was making this a priority. Remember, our luggage was not lost at any time. They always knew where it was and they always knew where we were going to be. This representative hung up on me ."
Pros: "Smooth flight. Perfect service."
Cons: "Better reading material"
Pros: "Not much to say here. It was a short flight, and it went smoothly."
Cons: "I’ll say the same thing about almost every flight I have, and this is mostly for the airlines. People might fly more and pay a bit more if you give us more room. Being crammed into a tiny seat with a bunch of strangers is never pleasant. Same in this flight. Nothing terrible, just the usual. Also, to the other passengers, sit down until it’s your turn to exit. What is wrong with you that you can’t sit five more minutes? Be polite and let the people in front of you go first, let them have room to grab their bags instead of having your elbows in their face."
Pros: "All was super!"
Cons: "All was great!"
Cons: "Free water ! On a 2+ hours flight, it’s scandalous to have to pay for a glass of water. Also, your cabin crew was inexperienced (but trying hard, credit to them) and understaffed. And the flight was late."
Pros: "The crew, plane and airport was great!"
Cons: "Part of our luggage was disassembled and not delivered to the final destination."
Pros: "We made it safely to our destination."
Cons: "There was no WiFi. Comfier seats or at least a pillow and blanket."
Cons: "At least a complimentary glass of water or juice in Economy."
Cons: "No information was avSo pick a couple up listen to this device again also right now dictation right now"
Cons: "Flying with the same company from Vilnius, only on Riga they decided to weight the cabin bags. I understand the police, the limit weight, but they should apply it from the first flight, not just half way"
Pros: "Very nice plane and we left on time and the flight was very smooth."
Pros: "everything was good enough"
Cons: "I would like a meal and drinks on the board"
Pros: "flight crew was amazing."
Cons: "Boarding was poorly handled by airport staff"
Cons: "Short flight and unmemorable (that's a good thing)"
Pros: "Crew were efficient and friendly."
Cons: "Coffee creamer sachets are insufficient in quantity for the coffee. Even with two sachets the coffee was still nearly black. The flight was full and the cost of checked in luggage ensured everyone used their carry on allowance. As a consequence, overhead bins were full. I left one bag at the front of the plane and had another at my feet. However, it was a short flight, so not too unbearable."
Pros: "Tallin airport is beautiful"
Cons: "Lost luggage and indifferent assistance."
Cons: "Flight was late"
Pros: "Modern airplane"
Cons: "Long delay on first flight leg Staff provided little help with transfers, made us run through airport but then decided to close the next flight anyway without the transfer passengers Next flight offered was 9 hours later, only offer was a 10EUR meal voucher - ridiculous"
Pros: "Short, convenient, direct, value for money."
Cons: "Not comfortable, small plane."
Pros: "most of the crew were polite and helpful"
Cons: "super small plane... had to climb a very narrow staircase into the plane... overhead bins couldn't accommodate much of anything... we weren't warned this in advance. one rude steward (Miks) July 21 Flt. BT444, 18:30-19:50... he just stood there watching me struggle up the outside staircase into the plane with my suitcase... scolded me for bringing suitcase on board, argued with me, etc. (I've traveled the world and this suitcase is always brought on board)... he was not service-oriented or helpful. thankfully, other staff did help... but he left a bad taste in my mouth for this airline."
Pros: "staff were polite, helpful, and efficient"
Cons: "super small plane... had to climb a very narrow staircase into the plane... overhead bins couldn't accommodate much of anything... we weren't warned this in advance"
Pros: "Short flight"
Cons: "They charged me 35 dollars to check in and the reason I did not check in was because their other flight was running late and was not sure I will make to that flight. It took forever to get bags in Riga. In the empty flight the way they were seating people was crazy. I'm lifetime gold with American Airlines so I do fair share flying and can tell you it's not a good Airline."
Cons: "The passage through Riga airport was terrifying. We arrived from St. Petersburg 6.35 and we left 7.20 to Paris (passengers in transit). We explained at the checkpoint that we had a few minutes, but they controlled us several times until we had to throw several liquid items. In St. Petersburg they had already controlled us, without problems. In short: a sad experience in Riga, which does not speak well of this country: Latvia."
Pros: "Pleasant crew, efficient boarding, flight was on time"
Cons: "No in-flight service"
Pros: "New planes"
Cons: "I wasn’t asked to prepay luggage & it cost me double. That makes me very annoyed."
Pros: "Did not have food, so not able to rate that. Comfortable for sure! Plane ain't that big and one side had only 2 seats next to each other."
Cons: "They delayed our flight from Gatwick to Riga with no information given to passengers. Many of us had a connecting flight with Air Baltic from Riga to Helsinki- which we asked if they will wait for us, the crew member said because the flight was also with Air Baltic, they will wait for us. We got there 10 minutes before take off, and the gate has already closed. Furthermore, we got to the Air Baltic counter, we were given 5Euro meal vouchers even though we will be staying at the Riga airport for 9 hours. Also they gave us terrible customer service attitude, which we definitely do not deserve after being delayed, and causing so much trouble on their behalf. Definitely do not recommend flying with Air Baltic again. I've never been this angry with any air line."
Cons: "Charging 30 Euros to check in at the airport is lunacy."
Cons: "They overbooked the flight and without any apologies on their behalf or without even informing me, they stop me and my fiance at the gate and just told is that we can not go to the flight I book and prepay 4 month at advance! The only solution that they can offer me was to travel from Riga to Moscow and than to Tel Aviv. It become 12 hours traveling across 4 countries ( we arrived form Stockholm) instead of 5 hours flight as it was supposed to! I'm not recommending to travel with that company it can not be trusted!"
Cons: "This is an airline that has perfected the art of nickle-and-diming customers. One example: I asked for a glass of water. The smug flight attendant told me, “We only sell bottled water,” with a look that dared me to complain."
Pros: "Everything was in time. Baggage I handked in the Riga airport and received it in Larnaca, no problems"
Cons: "bag measure frames in Riga airport used for aB are smaller than in most airports, as a results we were asked to check some bags in at the last moment. we have had connecting flight through Riga with two hand bags. lets call them big and small. judge by yourself: flight, aircraft, small, big ->Riga CS3, on board, on board Riga-> DHC 8-400, on board, check in ->Riga DHC 8-400, on board, on board Riga-> CS3, check in, check in as you see, the same bags on the same aircraft were allowed or disallowed by the same company based on weather one flies to Riga or from it. i believe there is absolutely no purpose for doing last second interruptions of such kind"
Cons: "We had to pay for 3 pieces of luggage, including my hand luggage. It came to about $150 dollars. When i booked the flight, it did not indicate anything about this extra change so be ware of this. The flight itself was quite inexpensive."
Pros: "The helpful ground person at check-in."
Cons: "This airline company looks a like person who is begging for money. First time in my life I paid for the luggage. 40 Euros!!! what for? Apparently Air Baltic has no clue about how to run a service business. Somebody has to teach them this naked reality: IN SERVICE BUSINESS YOUR CUSTOMERS ARE YOUR MAJOR MARKETING ASSETS! They don't even serve a glass of water, apparently they could not manage to integrate it in the ticket price. But they dare to get thirsty and unhappy customers on the plane. Anyways: This airline company is charging extra for luggage. And I could not see this anywhere when I was buying ticket online. If I knew I'd never buy the ticket from Airbaltic. "Not writing it clearly and visible at the time of ticket purchase" is certainly tricking and misleading us. This is a crime!"
Cons: "The flight was cancelled, so I did not make to the my connection flight with different carrier. I had to reschedule the flight and stay in the hotel overnight. AirBaltic refused to compensate for my looses due to thair fault, castomer service is very poor, they took refusal position right away. Air Baltic planes are very old and no air conditioning, avoid air Baltic."
Pros: "Professional appearance"
Cons: "Extra $ for the seat (quite absurd) and 40 Euros for a check in luggage."
Cons: "No food or entertainment."
Cons: "Expensive tickets but no complimentary beverages and snacks for a 2 hour flight, overpriced snacks in the flight cafe. 3H delay!!!! with no understandable explanation in English and no explanation in Latvian from the captain - airBaltic is a Latvian airline! Other airlines use two languages - national and English"
Pros: "Brand new aircraft Wider seats as normal Good selection of food"
Cons: "We got disembarked from the aircraft for technical reasons, then they towed the same aircraft to the next gate and off we were. Delay almost two hours."
Pros: "Quick bag drop and security line at Riga airport. Quick boarding with all the larger suitcases forcibly checked in at no charge. On time departure. Seats are comfortable enough for a short flight."
Cons: "(This is more of a comment on Kayak's review page than on the flight.) Haven't tried the food and there was no entertainment."
Cons: "paying for water!"
Cons: "surprised i had to pay for coffee"
Pros: "They did provide a 6 euro food voucher once it was clear the flight was going to be over 2 hours late. The flight and land crew did their best to keep everyone calm under bad circumstances."
Cons: "Flight was just under 3 hours late (long enough to kill most of the day, but just under what is needed to pay compensation). First they said it was problems in Amsterdam, then problems with the plane, then traffic in Amsterdam. It was hard to tell what was true and what was avoiding penalties (it is possible that equipment issues caused them to lose their spot, and get caught in traffic delays). I hate that they charge 2.5 euros for water on the flight. Their carryon rules only allow us to take the smallest of bags (smaller than other airlines) but when I got on the plane, lots of people had medium sized carryons."
Pros: "The equipment used for the trip to latvia. the cs300 was superb and I enjoyed my seat. It was comfortable. The boarding was quick and efficient. spacious and quite lovely. the food was ok . i enjoyed the grilled pork."
Cons: "the customer service rep stopped only me, the only black man travelling from riga to russia and was scrutinizing my passport for some long agonizing minutes. My russian visa is in the passport and updated and quite visible to see on the third page of my passport and being from Grenada I am able to travel to latvia visa free for up to 90 days. I stood there whilst others walked past me and went to the aircraft. that sucked. may 09 2017 at around 9 am."
Pros: "Flight was on time which was surprising given a late snow storm in Tallinn."
Cons: "The flight was fully booked, and the system re-assigned seats for a number of passengers. This created confusion as passengers arrived to their assigned seats to find other passengers in the seats. There also appeared to be a miscommunication between the crew as some crew members said to passengers whose seats were taken they should sit anywhere, whereas other crew members tried to get everyone back in their assigned seats. This was frustrating. Also the overhead bin lockers are very difficult to open"
Cons: "For people who have Airbaltic as a connecting flight this might be very inconvenient. We paid 40 Eur/person each way for our luggage . That brings the price that you pay so much higher than you expect at first. Also if you don't print boarding pass ahead of time which we didn't (plus still needed to drop off checked luggage and check our passports) they want to charge you 30 Eur a person to print that drinking piece of paper. If you don't want to pay that get out of the line with all of you luggage, go to kiosk and print it, then come back to the line. But that's companies rules , employees just have to follow it. Another problem was their attitude. The guy who got our luggage was so weird. Showing off and talking to us like a boss. After giving us boarding passes he said we can go to the screen and look up the gate ourselves. I never write long reviews but man! they got me mad that day. Never say never - but I don't want to fly with this airline again"
Pros: "Boarding was efficient."
Cons: "No free food or drink of any kind. That would have been okay since prices were reasonable. However, they completely skipped my row on my side of the plane, and I had to use the call button to get service."
Pros: "Friendly crew, tons of meal options, good price."
Cons: "Checked in luggage is only 20kg, there's no entertainment in flight."
Pros: "Fine, left on time, short flight."
Cons: "No complaints"
