Cons: "Ordered kosher and did not get it"
Pros: "Food and movies"

Pros: "Nothing special"
Cons: "The business class seats were just like the economy class, not wider or extra space, only an empty seat in between, not worth the money. The first flight from Cairo to Zürich, no meal or snack was offered. Very disappointed in Swiss business class"

Cons: "My Partner and I was dissatisfied with our connecting from Zurich to Cairo. We expected the same flight but we were in basically in coach with little more leg room. The chairs barely reclined to a comfortable position. There was no entertainment, just a three and a half hour flight at the flight plan on a small tv hanging over. their was no differentiation between the economy behind us. just the food that was brought to us, other felt the same as well who were traveling in business with us."
Pros: "Plane was comfortable (for a plane) and the staff were polite and efficient. The flight made up lots of time and the in flight snacks were very welcome."
Cons: "The flight was very delayed, and the communications from Swiss was lacking. In fact their app thought the flight had taken off and landed on time?!"

Pros: "flight was on time"
Cons: "insufficient AC during boarding endlessly screaming baby"

Pros: "Food was overall not bad. It would have been nice to have more snack options if I was hungry in between meals."
Cons: "Landed early but there was no gate so we just sat on the runway. We also sat on the runway long past when we were supposed to arrive. I'm not sure why there still was no gate when we passed the time that we were supposed to arrive. There were also no power outlets in the plane. For such a long flight, it would be great to have power outlets to charge devices while flying. Flight was also kept very cold. Not very good entertainment options."
Pros: "Airline attendants were very polite and nice."
Cons: "Older plane, arm rests did not go up all the way, and missed landing on the initial approach to Newark, which delayed landing for another 20 minutes."
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. It just seemed that they were incompetent or weren't willing to help. Crew on flight were very nice. Vegetarian food options better than chicken / meat options."

Pros: "Food on long legs was excellent."

Pros: "The flight attendant, Winsom, was fantastic."
Pros: "Great to have movies on a domestic flight. Friendly crew."
Cons: "Boarding was a shambles resulting in late departure. Seems to be common in the US, but the zone system of boarding with back of the plane going on last seems counterintuitive and I can't recall it taking so long to board a flight. Also took a long time disembarking."
Pros: "Flight was very quick. Boarding was very fast for such a small plane."
Cons: "Turbulence. Tiny carry-on area, tiny bathroom. Makes sense for such a small plane though."
Pros: "Nothing in particular stands out."
Cons: "The boarding process seemed backward, took longer than usual to board the plane."
Pros: "Delay. First it was about 20 min, then 30, then 49 and 55. At the end more than 70 minutes delay. Too much, too frequent on delta!!!!"
Pros: "Efficient crew. Good movie choices. Clean bath rooms. However - I wish every airline in each bathroom had a notice on the toilet to PLEASE LOWER THE SEAT AND COVER! I prefer using the bathroom after another woman has used it!"
Pros: "Please see above. Sherry was amazing"
Cons: "Plane was small and older but it was a short flight"
Cons: "Bullshit seating...will happily put frequent flyers next to the freaking toilets."
Pros: "Crew was friendly and helpful. Flight smooth and quick."

Pros: "really great service, arrived early, as good as it gets."
Pros: "Got me where I needed to go at the price I wanted to pay. - The gals at the ticketing desk were extremely helpful and cheerful."
Cons: "Not my typical Delta experience: -Boarding for special needs was a joke. A literal ‘run-on-sentence’. No more did I get up and they went to the next group. I was almost knocked over in the rush. -The onboard staff was nice enough. However, between the two of them, one of them had a thick accent. Maybe that one shouldn’t be the one making all on board announcements… and please fix the horrendous crackles too!!! -It seemed our pilot was in training… during our short flight a series of right and left turns were made, no effort to avoid turbulence, and the landing was surprisingly hard. It felt as if my spine took a quick jab to my brain as a result! What’s up?"
Pros: "Some "perk" for Diamond status on Delta to get to a shorter security line, but customs and immigration was... customs and immigration."
Cons: "No available SkyTeam lounge unless you had a business class ticket. As a Diamond flier, I can always access the SkyTeam lounges. Audio for boarding was a little unclear so there was some confusion at boarding. For reasons unknown, my bag was moved from one overhead bin to another. Very frustrating since I board early to avoid this confusion and hassle."
Pros: "Fast and efficient boarding again! Most impressed!"
Pros: "Great crew"
Pros: "That my flight was on time"
Cons: "Pretty much everything else about it"
Pros: "There were no problems at all, the only thing some times the entertainment would go out or slow, nothing else."
Pros: "The courtesy of the staff and the seats in the "delta comfort" section."
Cons: "Too many interruptions. i'm not sure if there is a way but there should be a way to only serve only those who are requesting service."
Cons: "Cancelled my flight then re-booked me for the next day; was able to then find a flight same day but 7 hours later. That then was delayed another 4 hours and I had to buy a rental car to drive home instead. Thus far they have been unresponsive in getting me a refund for my travel. Don't fly Delta."
Cons: "No blankets or pillows. Froze"
Cons: "Didn't eat or use entertainment."
Pros: "Food and choice of entertainment was excellent."
Cons: "Was stuck with the middle seat so I knew what I was in for."
Pros: "I had ordered a dairy - free vegetarian meal for the international flight. Initially the attendant brought me a vegetarian meal with cheese, part of the regular meal options, then she found the one with my seat number that was dairy - free. It was quite tasty! And I was grateful, since I would not have been able to eat the meal with dairy. It is not a preference, dairy makes me ill. The delay departing from Brussels caused us to miss our connecting flight to Denver, but our provided hotel accommodations in NY were quite comfortable. One item of note: The LaGuardia staff person, who made our arrangements for the overnight stay, said there was a shuttle from the hotel to JFK ( where our flight was in the morning), so she did not give us a travel voucher for the morning. The Hotel only has a shuttle to LaGuardia; it never has a shuttle to JFK. It seems the staff person should have known that. When we called Delta to ask how we should handle that, Delta kindly offered us reimbursement; it was just a phone call and a mailing for us and for Delta that was extraneous. Our interaction with the staff person was entirely pleasant, we were just surprised that there was misinformation."
Pros: "Salimos a tiempo . El business es muy confortable"
Cons: "La comida horrible . No se limpian los baños"
Pros: "Due to business I travel allot so I deal with allot of airlines. This is by far the best airlines I have used. Excellent crew and airport staff.

Pros: "Seat was uncomfortable. There was nothing to like. In past I have traveled by KLM but this time it was worst."

Cons: "If I knew how to recline my seat earlier. I did try several times"
Pros: "It was all fine"
Cons: "Really was unsure of why I had to purchase a ticket as I was able to pick my own on the way to Billund"

Cons: "A lot of delays, on both flights. We spent twice as much time waiting than flying."
Cons: "We were changed from KLM to Airiltalia without any information sent so only because I tried to check in did I find out the flight on KLM was cancelled and we were changed to Airitalia. The Airitalia flight was very mediocre."
Pros: "The crew were very nice, food was tasty, seat comfortable and the entertainment great as well. Will be flying KLM again soon :)"
Pros: "The crew was very nice"
Cons: "Uncomfortable seat but it’s only a 1 hour flight so not a big deal."
Cons: "No reading light in my seat..."
Pros: "Last year I flew Lufthansa which was my worst experience flying ever. I thought the new standard was so low I would never fly to Europe again. I had heard KLM was good but I felt this was as good as could be expected actually much better. The food was even good."
Cons: "I would have to dream something up."
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."
Cons: "Very slow service at checkin, was not even available when I arrived at the airport"
Pros: "I bought the Airport tickets for my Russian friend. However customs would not allow her to board the plane unfortunately. That's not Kayaks fault. I would definitely book with Kayak again. Many thanks."

Cons: "No complaints about anything."

Cons: "The amount of extras you have to click no to while checking in online."
Pros: "Got to Amsterdam on time and everything was great including the staff"
Pros: "Crew was courteous and polite! Entertainment system had some great movies at no additional cost."
Cons: "Poor communication between delta, KLM and Air France meant that I couldn’t check in online and get a digital boarding pass. Furthermore I couldn’t use the check-in kiosks because my name was listed as Reidmr instead of Reid, which meant that my boarding pass did not match my passport. Overall this caused unnecessary delays that were compounded by the fact that I couldn’t use my TSA precheck. My main problem on the plane was that I had to struggle to get water served to me. It’s always so dry on planes and I would have liked to be able to get more than one tiny glass of water at a time. Also, would have loved a window at my window seat. Plus no WIFI!?"
Pros: "That we didn't crash"
Cons: "Being delayed and missing my connecting flight. No entertainment onboard (for hours and hours)."
Pros: "The cabin crew, the flight and communication and the cleanliness of the plane."
Cons: "It was really unclear which desk to use at Birmingham airport to check in. It was extremely stressful for a first time flier as I had no idea what to do - the desk location wasn't marked clearly and when no staff were there it wasn't clear that the desk was open."
Pros: "Very friendly and the food and drinks never stopped and no additional charges, a very nice experience over the bargain airlines, free in-flight movies, and entertainment, no cost."
Cons: "No complaints."
Pros: "It's the best flight I could get for such a low price. But don't expect to to get the best and newest planes around but it's still overall a good experience."
Cons: "Quite bummed the plane didn't have wifi / USB"
Pros: "It's the best flight I could get for such a low price. But don't expect to to get the best and newest planes around but it's still overall a good experience."

Cons: "Because of slow boarding process flight was delayed by 15 minutes. I had short connection in Amsterdam."

Cons: "You have to be gold to get the priority boarding. In other countries I can do it with my silver status."
Pros: "...The transfer at JFK was terrible"
Pros: "There's almost no padding to them and they're very narrow. I know it's nothing new but I'll keep complaining until something changes, if ever."
Cons: "The crew was wonderful, the food was extremely good for economy cabin standards."
Pros: "Flight was overbooked. After paying 1.7k, they put me to another flight which took me 7 hours more to arrive SFO."
Pros: "Indeed the crew was amazing!"
Cons: "Nothing. It was all good!"
Pros: "Very friendly crew"
Cons: "Flight got delayed. Would be nice if the crew would come around w water occasionally"
Pros: "Great to go through customs in Dublin so the landing at home is easy."
Cons: "The airline made people unnecessarily nervous by posting a very early boarding time so people thought they had to jump in line in customs when, in fact, we all had the same departure times and all had plenty of time."
Cons: "Transferring to another airline that was “serviced by”. British Airways ended up being 2 hours of stress, confusion and running to our gate. This should be made apparent while booking. Had to go through security 3 times in Toronto."
Cons: "Crew could have been more interested. Seat could have reclined and gone upright properly."
Pros: "The crew was good"
Cons: "I didn’t like how I prepaid for my window seat & ended up with a different seat in the middle"
Cons: "Over 90 minutes delayed. Plane was so hot it was uncomfortable"
Pros: "the seats were comfortable, boarding systematic and the crew were polite and helpful"
Cons: "Flight delayed over an hour. Gate changed twice without announcement"
Pros: "Flight on time"
Cons: "Upon check in Dublin there was only one attendant at the check in counter in business class. Had seat assigned when I booked the flight and check in counter gave different seats so was not sitting beside my husband."
Pros: "No issues at all."
Cons: "No issues to report."
Pros: "Comfort of seats"
Cons: "No service even water"
Pros: "I liked the variety of movies/television series shows that were available and having USB charger at every seat. Also liked that they gave headphones free of charge as well as pillows and blankets."
Cons: "The seats were fairly narrow and I had the unfortunate luck of having a mechanical box at foot space taking away half of it. (on the previous flight there was no box and foot space was fine). On this journey I was sitting on the aisle being constantly bumped by the crew moving up and down the aisles. I’m not a big person and wasn’t in the aisle however, on the aisle opposite me was a bigger person. The crew were constantly moving to avoid that person and hitting me. Expect tight seating and narrow aisles."
Pros: "The seats were particularly comfortable."
Pros: "First experience flying business class -- and Aer Lingus has it down to a science! Great food (maybe too much actually!), friendly attendants, great service -- and the most wonderful pods that allow you to lay out flat for a snooze, complete with duvets and pillows."
Pros: "Super friendly staff"
Cons: "Flight left late and landed over 45 minutes late. No support for those that were left late for connections and no allowing those to de-board first. No Aer Lingus staff in the airport when the luggage screw up from Madrid was discovered."
Pros: "Dublin Airport screening was fine. Aer Lingus checkin and bag tagging was super efficient (self-serve). USA Prescreening cut you off from the airport shopping, was a repeat of all you had done for Dublin Airport screening and cut you off from the airport amenities, like most of the food and all of the shopping. It was decent, when landed in the US, to not have to deal with a line and wait at US Customs."
Cons: "US Prescreening was a repeat of Dublin Airport screening (really - the same strip down and pull everything out for inspection a second time?) and it cut you off completely from airport shopping and most of the food."
Pros: "They had vegetarian options for food."
Cons: "I couldn't check in until I got to the airport so I was stuck in a middle seat. Boarding went smoothly but we sat on the run way for an extended period of time. The screens weren't working for the first 45 mintues and when they were finally reset the movies kept skipping which made it unwatchable, the 7 hour flight from hell."
Pros: "Didn’t feel cramped like on the Air Transat flight to Dublin. The food was quite good and they had a great selection of movies."
Pros: "Staff is very friendly. With the right backing, this could have been one of the best short hop airlines."
Cons: "Boarding is a mess. Make people stand in their groups and enforce these animals to board in an efficient manner. Every other major airline does it. Staff is TOO friendly because these customers rush the gate no matter what and the staff is fine with it."
Pros: "The flight was short."
Cons: "I am 6ft 2ins. and the legroom was awful. My knee still hurts. The staff was not very friendly. It’s amazing that flight attendants don’t realize that they work for the passengers and not vice versa."
Pros: "Boarding and on time schedule"
Cons: "Seats, food and not enough beverages"
Pros: "Seats were larger with more leg room. Flight calm and without incident"
Cons: "No snack"
Pros: "Having had bad experiences with Aer Lingus before, I was hesitant to book with Aer Lingus again. But sadly, I was booking this flight last minute and had no other option. The route was Dublin to Calgary, via Toronto. I left myself plenty of time im Toronto to clear customs as I know it can take a while. The day of, the flight ended up being 1.5 hours longer than usual due to headwinds, leaving me with only 2.5 hours in Toronto. I ended up waiting 2 hours and 15 minutes for my bag and missing my connecting flight (my sister who was also on the same flight received hers in 30 mins and made the flight). Westjet was wonderful and put me on a later flight but Aer Lingus didn't have any assistance for me."
Cons: "Aer Lingus lost my sister's luggage going to Ireland and never contacted my sister once the luggage was found. She only received it the day we flew back to Calgary. Poor customer service when inquiring about the bag, no compensation for necessities purchased."
Pros: "They really did a great job, kept us informed about what was going on,staff was quick, organized and pleasant. I have to say, best food on a flight that I have had in a very LONG time,!"
Cons: "Free-for-all boarding was less than ideal. Boarding by seat rows as on Boston to Dublin flight would have been better."
Pros: "Best meals I've ever had. Front facing sleepers are easier to sleep in than the diagonal configuration."
Cons: "Connections within Europe have no business class. It is actually a worse experience than Air France and Lufthansa."
Pros: "Flight delayed 2 hrs - missed connection, small seats/aisles."
Cons: "Crew was nice."
Pros: "I loved that the trip was relatively short and uneventful. The food was adequate, but nothing to brag about and very little. The hostesses were nice,better than last time. The price was right on, mostly for a trip of under 15 hours...when usually it is 20h with a stopover."
Cons: "On the way over, I couldnt get water. The trolley didn't come by, and I had to "leg-over" my sleeping neighbor to get a glass of water fo the back reserve. The TV wasn't working; the remote was dead. As it was a night flight, it didn't matter tt much for me, but it should've been working. The passengers could have been spread out better as there were completely empty middle rows. It would have helped with comfort."
Pros: "Every seat had it's own t.v.; however, the movie selection was limited compared to the British Airways flight we took to Dublin. We were served a meal that did not require an additional fee which was great, but the taste was so-so. The crew was competent and pleasant."
Cons: "The entertainment (movie) selection was not that great."
Pros: "The crew"
Cons: "Food not good , entertainment system old un updated and slow"
Pros: "Nothing extraordinary about the flight (not necessarily a bad thing). Complimentary refreshments."
Cons: "Boarding was very slow and not well organized therefore all passengers were trying to find their seat at the same time. No pillows or blankets available. The entertainment system has not kept up to date. Poor reception and old movies. My new case was damaged that can't be repaired on route from Heathrow-Dublin-Toronto Aer-Lingus is no different from any other airline that fly across the Atlantic - too bad"
Pros: "The seats were comfortable, the crew was friendly and the food was okay."
Cons: "The entertainment system wasn't great. The earphones quality was quite bad and felt really uncomfortable. Unfortunately, AerLingus still has that double pronged plugs and I wasn't able to use my personal set (actually, I could but sound would only work on one side). I'll definitely fly with them again, only next time I'll bring an attachment for me to be able to use my headphones."
Cons: "Same as above. I am not sure which leg of the flight caused the damage to the checked bag."
Pros: "Everything was great"
Pros: "Very clean. Seats are comfortable and food is good."
Pros: "Food is poor!!! The vegetarian meals have no flavor"
Cons: "I didn't like the fact that I was skipped the first time they came around with drinks. It happened on our way to Europe and the way back. I did not appreciate that."
Cons: "Flight did not include a snack: even a tea cost $3."
Pros: "Entertainment was great. We could watch films as soon as we got on and play the quiz game while we waited 30 minutes on the ground to find a gate."
Cons: "Crew did not smile. They did their job, but did not seem to enjoy it."
Pros: "From Brussels to Dublin, we had a good flight. The air hostess was attentive enough and the cabin comfort was excellent."
Cons: "That we can't even have a cup of coffee without having to pay 3 euros. I thought that was outrageous."
Pros: "See above"
Pros: "Great food."
Cons: "Limited leg room."
Pros: "On time"
Pros: "All crew members were friendly and courteous. The gluten free dinner was good."
Cons: "The sound on the on board entertainment system was not good at all. It was difficult to hear the dialog."
Cons: "It took so long to get bags on the carousel it eliminated any extra time the pilot gave us in getting to the airport quickly."
Cons: "We arrived in Toronto from Dublin to get our connecting flight with two very tired children and were told by Air Canada that our connecting flight was never booked by Aer Lingus. We were told that the flight we were supposed to be on was full and there was no flights until the next morning. To top it off Air Canada could not locate our baggage and we were told to wait around and check back every half hour. If was past two in the morning Dublin time and our kids were exhausted and fell esleep in the airport. We could not wait around any longer with exhausted children so we booked a hotel and took our kids there without our luggage. Our kids were crying because our baggage was lost and thus was a shitty way to end our vacation and my birthday! Would not recommend flying with Aer Lingus or Air Canada. Horrible service."
Pros: "The crew was excellent."
Cons: "They need to check the tv screens. On two different IcelandAir planes my screen wasn't working."
Cons: "Terrible meal options for an overseas flight. Discount airline-style buy your own meals not clear when purchasing ticket, poor drink service. Poor entertainment options. Ticket price did not reflect bare basics discount airline class of flight and service. Very disappointing."
Pros: "Crew were pleasant but with such cramped seating, no food, and no sceen working this is definitely a budget flight."
Cons: "Schedule seems to mean there is always a shortage of time to make connections."
Pros: "Washroom was very clean."
Cons: "It was really cold in the plane. Crew was not friendly. Only drinks were served. Crew forgot to let me in earlier (preboarding) no English subtitles or captions!"
Pros: "Canadian Airlines and Airports could learn from the business model of IslandAir."
Cons: "Taking off & landing"
Pros: "I was able to get from Iceland to Toronto, so essentially they were able to fly the plane."
Cons: "I have been flying many different airlines for many years and have a decade plus of travel experience, so this negative review is something I’ve hardly ever done as some background. We left over an hour late to start off with. They took 1.5 hours to offload our luggage. Avoid at all costs."
Pros: "I bought the ticket from Iceland Air because their flights schedule dovetailed nicely with a traveling companion."
Cons: "On the eve of my departure, I was informed that my return flight had been cancelled and rescheduled without: any offer of compensation, or, an offer of alternative flight arrangements. Pleas to address the situation were totally ignored. This, I believe, is an unconscionable way to run an airline."
Pros: "Early arrival"
Cons: "Long walk in Toronto airport to leave"
Pros: "Everything was ok"
Pros: "Same as other comment"
Cons: "Same as other comment"
Pros: "I had sprained my ankle the day before my flights, and the crew were all very nice and accommodating for me."
Cons: "I didn't like the fact that when I booked my flight, I was misled to believe that my checked baggage was included. The message said that "cabin baggage was included", but since when is cabin baggage NOT included?? I was surprised to find out when I was checking in that I had to pay an extra 50 Euros to check my luggage in, which I was really not happy about since the flight itself was already so expensive."
Cons: "The check-in process was horrible. It took over an hour to drop off our bags and get a boarding pass."
Pros: "The plane and crew are great!"
Cons: "A bit disorganized with boarding is my only complaint."
Pros: "Iceland Air personnel were super accommodating, in Seattle on the ground and in he air."
Cons: "Swissport personnel in Europe were awful. Bags were delayed in Amsterdam for over an hour after landing. Check in at Brussels was also an hour long queue. Boarding in the terminal in Iceland was very disorganized."
Pros: "Excellent entertainment and good comfort"
Cons: "Boarding time, long and not orderly. No complimentary snacks on a 6 hour flight?"
Pros: "The plane was quite modern and comfortable"
Cons: "I preordered and prepaid for meals, but on this flight I had to go ask for my meal."
Pros: "Somewhat on tome"
Cons: "We got stuck at the agent counter checking in our bag for 30-45min cuz they couldn’t figure out my wife’s visa. They also charged us €88 per check in bag. We could t do it online for some reason. I’m never flying this airline again."
Pros: "Good movie selection?"
Cons: "I had to pay for extra luggage, because though I paid for an Economy Standard ticket which does come with checked-in baggage, there was nothing written on my ticket to prove it. I paid for the standard ticket ahead of time specifically. Although the staff were nice enough, for a struggling student, this mix-up was unacceptable. I now find myself making calls and trying to get in contact with both Kayak and Icelandair for a refund of the 88euro. I think I was particularly unlucky, because I was picked twice for special security checks, which pulled me out of the line I was waiting in while the flight was delayed, and I had to re-enter the line at the end. Though I requested window seats, I did not receive one either time (though I knew it wasn't guaranteed). There was also no overhead storage space for carry-ons overhead, so I had to make my way to the front of the plane to store my backpack, and several of those who came after me had to sit with their carry-ons on their lap. The seats were also pretty uncomfortable with a thick unadjustable headrest; and the air quality was terrible, a bit smelly and very dry. As a frequent flyer (who does fly with icelandair occasionally) this was unusual."
Pros: "Nothing good about this airline"
Cons: "Forget about comfortable experience during the flight. The way how they list the ticket from Kayak is the scam. Stated Economy class on Kayak and their own website ticket info. Once you chek in, they will stated this is the cheapest economy ticket, doesnt allow any baggage, and you have to pay I think around $150 for round trip baggage. End up with just to carry on, wouldnt able to shop in Europe. If you includ baggage flight would be similar to other airline provide baggage and quality services. Huge mistake, customer service located overseas, and dont care about customer."
Pros: "Got home safely"
Cons: "Typical flight now days. Seats are too small for comfort. There needs to be action by regulators of aviation industry to increase space for coach passengers. I think these regulators should be required to fly coach three times a year in a coach seat on flights of three hours or more."
Cons: "Baggage fees were horribly expensive."
Cons: "I can deal with everything else but the staff members were absolutely rude and unhelpful"
Pros: "Pre checkin and seat selection"
Pros: "Everything went okay for us on this flight. In the future, I will suggest to my wife, who books air travel for us to read the fine print. The cost to check a bag was $100.00 which would have run us $300.00 for the trip: Boston to Brussels with a layover in Reykjavik, but on the return Brussels to Reykjavik with four days in Iceland and the return to Boston, so there goes the cheap flight! I did enjoy the in-flight movie and a documentary on the return trip as well."
Cons: "My own earphones on the flight from Brussels to Iceland did not work. I could not plug them into the system."
Pros: "My exit aisle seat was just great, with no one on either side of me !!!!! Very kind airplane staff. I had a great sleep."
Pros: "Clean plane and facilities. Nice crew. Email notifications of delays"
Cons: "Multi-hour delays - strike induced on outbound flight, weather induced on return flight. Email notifications were nice but inconsistent. Expensive food."
Pros: "Second time I have flown to Brussels with Iceland Air. I love their customer service and especially the flight route. My flight going over was cancelled due to weather. I called their reservation office , had to wait on hold for 1 hour and 15 minutes , but it was worth it. The reservation agent found me a new flight on LH, she explained I would get a conformation about 3 hours after our conversation with the flight information and new txt information. I was able to check in with LH on line that evening. Iceland Air had every pre assigned seats for me."
Cons: "The boarding process in Kevlavik is pretty awful. No seating around gate areas. You have to stand in line for about 30 minutes to then have to get on shuttle to be driven to plane where you have to walk on stairs to get to plane, or in some cases you actually get to board from the terminal, which happened yesterday. I have MS,and sometimes standing for long periods of time and then having to climb up stairs is difficult for me. I also see a lot of elderly people and parents with babies having difficulty with this boarding process. Their airport really needs major expansion for the amount of people that travel thru their. Seating araes around their gates should be a priority."
Pros: "The staff is very friendly on board and the overall flight was very pleasant."
Cons: "Boarding in Reykjavik was slow and very congested."
Cons: "They wouldn't help with rescheduling or refunding. They said they could charge me over twice what the ticket cost to change it. Not helpful or sympathetic at all. Sometimes it's nice to be human with human emotions."
Pros: "Efficent crew and flight on time"
Cons: "It's my understanding that Iceland Air has WOW! airlines as their budget entry. However, Iceland Air has no free food/snacks for a flight that is 6 hours long. So what more do they take away from the customer for the WOW flights? They should at least offer snacks on a flight/airline that is not advertised or priced as a budget flight"
Pros: "Legroom is quite good"
Cons: "Baggage drop-off badly indicated (or was not available?) in Reykjavik, so we had to wait a long line with people who did not do their check-in at the automated counters. Not efficient at all."
Pros: "Being handed a bottle of water on boarding was nice, and the crew on the plane was very friendly"
Cons: "We knew you had to pay for meals ahead of time if you wanted them, however Iceland Air doesn't even provide snacks on their flights. This was unknown prior to the flight. Luckily we had snacks with us, but for someone who might not, that would be a long flight especially the day flight on the way back. Additionally, my luggage got left in Iceland on the way back to Toronto, and the desk agent in Toronto for Iceland Air could not have been less helpful."
Pros: "Air Canada found a spot for us, great flight and service."
Pros: "I probably won't be flying islandair again"
Cons: "The whole experience was poor. I'm disappointed."
Pros: "Crew was kind and accommodating. Boarding was quick and organized. Great amount of leg room."
Cons: "Very disappointed that no food was served during the 5 hour flight from Reykjavik to Toronto. We had to pay 8 euro for a less than pleasant sandwich! Having to pay for food (even a snack!) was very surprising considering the length of the flight and that other airlines give out at least a small sandwich. I had a two hour connection flight with another airline and they offered a sandwich and granola bar, so for a 5 hour flight I assumed we would receive at least something small- nope!"
Pros: "Lots of leg room in row 7, nice flight attendants."
Pros: "Flight attendants were personable."
Cons: "Not enough seating space."
Cons: "Iceland airport was over crowded on the way to Brussels."
Pros: "The best part of the flight was the crew"
Cons: "Overall food was average, entertainment definitely needs to be improved"
Pros: "Our high-school friend had never flown before and she needed to come home early from our trip to Germany. You all treated her so well, and made her trip home pleasant. Thank you."
Pros: "Crew were very courteous and helpful. Plane was clean, and seemed newer. Seats were comfortable in a 3-3 configuration but as usual space was still tight in economy class."
Cons: "Boarding seemed a little chaotic and it was very crowded. Not enough seating for the number of people who were travelling at the gate at Keflavik."
Pros: "Greenland. Always get a window seat. Fantastic."
Cons: "I had to run from my incoming flight to the gate because they were "boarding". But they held us in a waiting room and then loaded on a bus in the rain (just above zero temp). There we stood on the bus for 25 minutes with no explanation of the delay. Finally out to the plane where we had to line up in the rain and blistering winds to get on the plane. Ruined my leather jacket."
Pros: "Boarding from the rear of the plan forward."
Cons: "Very few recent movie options"
Pros: "I liked that the pilot communicated with the passengers regarding when to expect the turbulence and the timing."
Cons: "i didn't like that my flight was delayed for 2 and a half hours and that I missed my flight from Boston to Slat Lake because of that delay. I had to wait in the airport overnight for the next flight next morning and the icelandic airline refused to give me a voucher for the hotel. They said that because i didn't book my flight to salt lake on the same ticket, I am not qualified for the hotel."
Pros: "Fast service onboard. so many flight attendants!!"
Cons: "Some menu items weren't carried on this flight. Oh yeah - as I peep at reviews below - Reykjavik airport is super chaotic around departure gates. Probably wasn't built to accommodate the masses and endless international connections. The backlog of travelers is likely caused by another carrier who is known for delayed departures and arrivals."
Pros: "Timely service; being able to fly to Europe from North America with a break. Unbeatable price."
Cons: "Keflavik airport can't handle Icelandair and Wow traffic, and the boarding process was a "cattle rustle""
Cons: "I understand that businesses must expand, and that is no different with the Keflavik airport. In routing passengers through the airport, there were listings for Canada/UK, and US/All Passengers. It was unclear whether this signage was meant for "flights" or "passport." It was actually for "flights" meaning, if you are taking a flight to Canada, use this line; for US flights, use that line. However, many people, myself included, mistakenly assumed that the signage was meant for passports, in other words, US passport holders use this line; Canada/UK passport holders, use that line."
