My son 17 years old traveling alone once in Salt-Lake City should have been given priority for an overnight stay instead of sleeping on an airport bench! Dinner + Breakfast vouchers would also have been nice compared to the 15$ food voucher..."
Pros: "Our flight crew were great. Pilots were great too."
Cons: "I missed my connection due to weather in Minneapolis. Was diverted into Milwaukee, but nope we are diverted to Chicago, but wait no we go to Milwaukee. Deboard into a close gate area.

Cons: "Flight left 2 hours late. Did not get adequate cabin service. Put in the back in an awful seat."
Pros: "Airline and airport staff were great"

Pros: "Delta always tries to do the very best. There were no issues with Delta."
Cons: "I did not like the seat assignment. It seems that when I have booked through Kayak, I get a very bad seat. In this case, it was all the way in the back - next to the toilet. The seats didn't recline, and there was no window - because we were right next to one of the engines. I will use Kayak to price compare on future flights, but I will not book through Kayak. Not sure if this is just a coincidence - but it only happens when booking here."
Pros: "On Time. Nothing else to say,"
Pros: "Friendly, leg room, on time."
Pros: "There was nothing I liked about this flight."

Cons: "We had to add on an extra connecting flight . We had to then fly from Toronto to Detroit then on yo Atlanta ."
Pros: "Flight went off pretty well. On time no complaints."
Cons: "Somewhere somehow you need to know that, although partners, Delta and West Jet do not share computer systems and that they are two completely different airlines. This affects ,sometimes, how luggage is handled especially when you land in another country and you have to manually transfer your own - and nobody tells you. You actually change airlines. Itinerary implies West Jet controls the entire thing. Not the case. Better job economic explaining what to With luggage and that, while itinerant implies 1 airline, they are only partners and should be treated separately."
Cons: "767-400 with the old entertainment system. small screen with poor quality and a number of people's had to be reset multiple times."

Cons: "Nothing...I have no complaints"

Cons: "No entertainment"
Cons: "West Jet gave me a "fake" ticket delta would not let me board missed the flight I had to wake up at 3am to catch. This is after I finally made it to my hotel last night at 11:30 pm. This is completely unacceptable. NEVER AGAIN IN MY LIFE WILL I EVER FLY WITH THIS COMPANY!!!!"
Pros: "Once again, the people were friendly, but I did not really experience much since I went to sleep as soon as the plane took off. I did, however notice that the seats reclined a little more than normal (which was amazing for me). I had a comfortable flight and caught a great nap."
Pros: "The flight attendants were helpful, the flight was smooth."
Cons: "I was unable to check in online without a delta confirmation number and I had booked through west jet. The flight was delayed 40 min so I arrived later and I was removed from the flight. I got through security and customs with plenty of time and managed to get back on the flight. It was all around just annoying."
Pros: "The flight attendants were great! Super friendly and helpful with everything!"
Cons: "I'd love slightly larger snack portions."
Pros: "Staffing was great!"

Cons: "It was a morning flight from Toronto to Omaha via Minneapolis and unfortunately coffee wasn't served. Or maybe it got over."
Pros: "My first and last time flying Delta! Everything that could have went wrong, did in fact go wrong. We were re-booked on connecting flights different then the one we originally booked and weren't even notified. They have a Delta app, but it doesn't even work right. Unless you physically go to the gate to check to see if the flight is on time, that is the only was to find out if you are re-booked onto a different flight or not. I have never flown an airline that re-books you on a different flight when they feel like it. I wouldn't recommend Delta Airlines to my worse enemy!"
Cons: "The boarding process was chaotic, half the time the staff did not use the PA system. They were not clear on who needed to do a passport check. Started to read names off then just gave up and said "a lot of you""

Cons: "I will never fly with Copa airline again"
Pros: "Everything was excellent"
Cons: "Nothing to add"

They then requested more drinks from the crew which they were given. I personally told one of the crew not to ser"
Cons: "Crew should have seen the passengers Mis behaving and refrained from giving alcohol to the 2 passengers"
Pros: "Two planes boarded late and the airline refused to let us bring our carry on luggage on board. Then they proceeded to lose one of our bags. We still don’t have it 24 hours later."

Cons: "Seats didn’t recline but I managed to sleep the first hour anyway"

Pros: "Flight attendant took care of everyone with a smile"
Cons: "Only entertainment is from overhead screens. This is not because copa doesn’t offer these services it’s just an older plane that was used."

Pros: "The food was decent for airplane food"
Cons: "When I booked my ticket, I booked a window seat in the exit row. When I got on the plane, my seat number was a middle seat not in the exit row. I saw right across from me there was an open window seat, which the lady sitting next to was using for her bags. I explained to the flight attendant that I had booked a window seat and wasn’t sure why I ended up in a different seat then I had booked. I asked him if he could ask the lady to move her bags so I could sit there, or if there were any other window seats available. He said no, that if I wanted I could ask the lady myself. Completely unacceptable. Of course she has no I treat in giving up this free extra space she has to me, and I’m sure she would have been happy to if a crew member had asked/explained the situation to her."

Cons: "Great experience"

Cons: "The waiting between flights"
Pros: "I la la love travelling with Copa! I book with them whenever possible!"
Cons: "Nothing really. My back was tired from sitting 5 hours but I don't put the blame on Copa for that! 5 hours of sitting does that to a person."
Cons: "TERRIBLE. Never had a worse flying experience. Was told at the first leg of the trip that there were 2 open seats on this flight but they would not reserve one for me. Mind you I booked this flight several months ago and somehow my seat got taken away from me because copa overbooked yet again. Worst customer service of all time. Was traveling with a group of 7 girls and got left behind in Panama because Copa took my seat away. Had to sit at the Panama airport for over 10 hours waiting for the next flight and arrive home at midnight. Copa would not allow access to a lounge or hotel even though they initially offered it when they said how they would take care of me if they couldn't get my seat back. Disgusted by how this airline operates."
Pros: "The staff"
Cons: "No vegetarian options granted :( the planes are dirty."
Pros: "Liked the dairy free options for the meal."

Cons: "Very limited food options, International flights have poor entertainment options, Very old seats and covers gave a very dull impression"
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Seats: on one leg (Panama to Mexico City) the seats are just like in Economy class, only a wider and more legg-room. But no FOOT REST, which is essential in a long flight. Laniding in Mexico was via a staircase and a bus (no fault of Copa). Reservation via BOOKING turned out to be a problem (could not make changes in flights). I had to do it via "influence", a pain in the neck."
Cons: "check in"
Pros: "Food was ok, Some of the crew were friendly better then Mia Panama."
Cons: "The airport personnel did not help me with adding my miles to my Cops Cinbect card, they said it was no value and that Cops Connect membership want Copa, Worse they broke my expensive Nautica luggage by losing a wheel and my luggage was not even 22 kilos"
Pros: "Crew was very understanding of our frustration and di the best they could do within their range(which wasn't much to be honest)"
Cons: "Poor job in the gate at boarding and with announces, we were held in the the runway for about an hour plus without proper indication of why, all the could say was "bad weather". Non-stop turbulence and food wasn't served until good 3 plus hours into the flight, (remember to add that to the time we were held at the runway as well). Entertainment on board was extremely limited."
Pros: "Everyone was awesome great service"
Pros: "Lisa Gilliard attended to us in business class. She was efficient, professional and top notch. Service was excellent under her leadership."

Cons: "Line were really long to check-in your bag and boarding took a while. We left a little late."
Cons: "They wasnt any meal for vegetarian person."
Pros: "Must say that customer service on flight superb! Served breakfast and dinner included in our airfare. I remember fondly when other airlines provided this service. Please don't change this service. It is a big deal for passenger attitude and experience! Thank you so much!"
Cons: "The experience at check in at PTY was very challenging...computers were down so we could not pre check from our Hotel earlier. Lines and not enough agents at check in stations....we came so close to not checking our baggage 1 hour ahead of our flight. We arrived at airport 2 hours ahead of flight. Also, departure time when we booked tickets was scheduled at 9:40 am. When I checked the night before it was listed at 9:10 am. We had not received any e-mail update that we know of. Seems there was no one to check with to ask questions as to which line we should be in."
Cons: "There was loud, annoying static over the intercom off and on."
Cons: "Best airline"
Pros: "Nice crew short flight."
Cons: "Not much flight was too short to say"
Pros: "Attention and comfort"

Pros: "There were so many refreshments and meals for just a 6.5 hour flight. The movie selection was great."
Cons: "Some of the attendants could have been friendlier, but overall they were very available and helpful."
Pros: "Crew very friendly"
Cons: "Lufthansa continuosly treats repeat customers like milk cows. The new ‘light fare’ is a genius way to charge the same as before with ZERO customer support."
Pros: "The food was really good! I don’t expect much from airlines but I feel like I got a real meal on board (two of them!)"
Cons: "We were delayed taking off and there were three screaming babies, but there’s only so much they can do about that."
Pros: "The crew was polite and efficient. Moved very well around sleeping passengers sprawled feet. The shortcomings of the flight had to do with being in a tail section of an economy class in a packed transoceanic flight."
Cons: "At the beginning of the long flight the cabin was chilled, which made me happy I had my hooded sweatshirt with me, but at the end it was hot and stuffy. There was no air regulation available from the seat, only light."
Pros: "Staff was helpful and kind. Entertainment had variety."
Cons: "Flight ran out of chicken meals fast, forcing the rest of the plane to have vegetarian instead. I was sat in 41G. Awkward seating arrangement. Worst seat ever! Super cramp, making a 9hr flight very uncomfortable."
Pros: "entertainment was good"
Cons: "the flight attendants were mostly absent. The flight attendants on the other side of the aisle were much more attentive and nice"
Cons: "It was Air Canada. Terrible service. Staff needs education on where to take travelers thru the immigration locations. Wasted time going to different locations and time is an essentence! Too many changes of staff from one location to another when it came with wheelchair assistance. One staff was on her personal phone!!! Had 3 different changes of hands then still did not get us to the right terminal, had to run to make the flight! Is that how you treat a 86 years old traveler?"
Cons: "Few toilets for two sections and seats too close, if it is not uptight the seat in front of you. You can not enjoy and watch movies."
Pros: "Service was excellent, food was good, everyone was friendly and nice."

Pros: "not much"
Cons: "The worst food I have ever had the displeasure of having in my mouth. The staff kept bumping into me and therefore did not sleep at all."

Cons: "the food was a bit bland. Selection of movies very limited"
Pros: "Very friendly atmosphere at boarding gate & helpful crew on journey, plus surprisingly good food foe economy class made for positive feel to this trip. Add to it the fact I caught a movie I'd missed seeing at cinema plus even getting a few hours sleep, this was probably one of my better long haul flights in recent times."
Pros: "Delicious chicken, Creamed spinach and roasted potatoes on return trip. Great selection of movies"
Cons: "“Pizza” on the return flight."
Cons: "Flying for funeral and they changed my destination from 2 flights to 3 because of a 3hr delay. Nobody cares about your wellbeing"

Pros: "I like the Aircaraft - A350-900 and service"
Pros: "The flights were on time, we made a 1 hr 5 min connection with no fluster. Dinner was one of the best airplane meals, breakfast a little less so"
Cons: "Delayed Flights Caused a day layover in Germany. The airline was not able to help in a medical emergency which caused me to have to pay to rebook a flight. Special Meals were only some time of the flights and was served Pork as an only option, my family and I didn't eat anything on a 10-hour flight due to this issue."
Pros: "everything was great. Service and pilots are at the top level of the proffessionalism."
Pros: "The entertainment system included ability to access cameras on the tail and belly of aircraft which was interesting to watch takeoff and landing. Crew was great, flight was smooth."

Pros: "Great crew. Leg room reminded me of old days flying comfort."
Cons: "Flight was continually delayed, 15 by 15 minutes until 4 hours had elapsed."
Cons: "They tell you to download the app for entertainment but it doesn't work. No entertainment on the flight and no food unless you pay. The service sucked."

Cons: "To board- it's just a long queue - any way to shorten line so we don't have to stand for so long?"

Cons: "Same as above."
Cons: "This was an Air Canada flight. Time in line to check baggage in Frankfurt was 2+ hours, baggage was lost but arrived the next day at our destination.

Pros: "Very nice staff at the gate and awesome media selection on the plane."
Cons: "Plane was very late; boarding late; short flight so no food or entertainment, but not really a problem. Overall condition of plane was mediocre at best -- old plane, not particularly clean. It was actually Air Canada. If that is a partner of Lufthansa, very disappointed. Would not fly Air Canada again, but LOVE Lufthansa."
Pros: "Airline crew very friendly and courteous throughout entire flight"
Cons: "Where to begin? During the booking process, there was no indication my travel partner and I would be flying Air Canada, and not Lufthansa. We were seated in the last row of the plane with painfully little legroom — even for two women of relatively small stature. The plane was not equipped with modern conveniences of operational wifi, music, or any other means of entertainment over the ten-hour flight. We were nearly an hour late to depart, but were unable to hear anything over the speakers regarding the cause for the delay, nor could we hear any of the flight attendants' safety instructions. What we could hear, however, was the surprisingly loud and nearly constant DINNNGGGG of the passengers' call buttons as they summoned the flight attendants. Because the flight was an overnighter, we attempted to sleep, but it was nearly impossible to do so due to the noise. I had earplugs in and could still hear the chimes, which were positioned right above our seats and made for an unpleasant experience and cranky travelers. The food was subpar as expected, but it would've been nice to be surprised with something resembling a fresh piece of fruit or vegetable. The flight crew was polite and one of the attendants took pity on us and offered a complimentary shot of whiskey, which partially alleviated the discomfort of the experience. That man is a saint and we surely hope he is better taken care of by this airline than we were. Overall a miserable experience. Will definitely rethink flying both Lufthansa and Air Canada in the future."
Pros: "we flew United"
Pros: "Boarding was okay, we still had the rush towards the beginning and the concern is always finding overhead space"
Cons: "Apparently if you're not awake when they ask you your choice, and it comes time to pass out food and you're awake... You don't get any. Really horrible. Food being handed out, you're hungry and not even an offer. They simply skip you."
Cons: "Flight delayed. Pilot told us we would arrive on time anyway, but we were very late and our luggage did not make the connecting flight."
Pros: "I liked the entertainment part: movies are good, crew was pretty nice"
Cons: "I didnt like the boarding process bacause it wasnt in order, also airplane crew started feeding passangers in 3 hours!!! after we took off. I started thinking that it is not included in my ticket!"
Cons: "I could not obtain in Frankfurt airport a boarding pass of my connection from Rio to Santiago"
Cons: "Did not take this flight due to delay missed my connection by 15 mins... Rescheduling was easy but flight was not convenant"
Pros: "I liked the in flight movies"
Cons: "Can't say there was anything I didn't."
Cons: "They lost my luggage. I don't understand why there isn't an arrival scan and how airlines don't take more responsibility for bags"
Pros: "Direct flight, separate spacious toilets, decent food"
Cons: "It's a good flight overall"
Pros: "The crew was outstanding, friendly and helpful. The entertainment options were great with lots of current movie and tv listings. the food was pretty good. We received two meals and frequent beverage service. The seats were pretty comfortable, though when the seat in front of you reclined the space was greatly reduced."
Cons: "We had to pay to get seat assignments. it wasn't cheap and then they changed the seats we'd chosen to seats at the very back of the plane. The boarding process is chaotic, at least compared to American practices."
Pros: "Very accomdating crew"
Pros: "Yes, Very good"
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: "Newer airplane, as 747s are kind of outdated now, especially for long distance flights. But overall had good experience with KLM"
Pros: "Great atmosphere, crew was excellent!"
Cons: "I’m 6’5”, so legroom can always be a complaint, but this wasn’t too bad. The plane appeared to be fairly old and didn’t have WiFi. Entertainment also was on an older screen which was navigated by using an old in-seat phone."
Cons: "Keep the temperature at a more reasonable level. Blankets + two layers of clothing was definitely not enough."
Cons: "Information on arrival time was not correct"
Pros: "The pilot and the crews were helpful about the transit. Pilot make up a lot of time."
Cons: "Flight was delayed, had to run to my next connection flight."
Pros: "Seat was comfy and spacious for economy class"
Cons: "Vegetarian meal was okay but could be more enjoyable if served with bread at start of meal."
Pros: "No delay and nice staff"
Pros: "Pleasant flight"
Cons: "We were delayed & missed our connection"
Cons: "Boarding was very slow."
Pros: "The flight crew was so friendly and the food was really good."
Cons: "Lost a single baggage item, a car seat. Critical for us to leave the airport, and delayed us for over an hour upon arrival. Gave us a loaner car seat that barely fit our child."
Pros: "KLM was a great experience compared to Airitalia. The food was good, the flight attendants were very helpful."
Cons: "The website I booked on and the Delta phone line on the printed ticket said that I had baggage when it turns out that I did not according to the check in staff and they made me pay."
Pros: "Crew was amazing, seats were comfortable with enough leg space even without choosing extra space seats. It was my childhood dream come true to fly with KLM. It was really an exciting trip for me, just that it was short."
Cons: "Well, for me everything was on point. Those who have never travelled with KLM, I would encourage them to do so and I’m sure they will not regret."
Pros: "Amazing crew"
Pros: "Crew were great, food, entertainment, seat and everything else was great as well."
Cons: "Faultless handling of weather delay, causing missed connection and flight transfer. A well oiled machine, thank you."
Pros: "Friendly staff, great service on board. Way better value and service compared to the tacky Irish competition flying the route. Delta all the way"
Cons: "Having to change my seat to accommodate a rude belligerent passenger, who had taken my seat, refused to move until spoken to by steward. She then made my flight a nightmare, until I let her sit in my aisle seat. Even then she was not satisfied, she abused me the whole flight damaged the screen so I could not use it until the steward fixed it. Demanded that I except any and all alcohol to give to her to drink. When I am tea total she then continued to abuse me. I asked the steward to move me he just shrugged his shoulders and said there was nowhere else. This is definitely my the worst flight I have experienced."
Pros: "Crew was very friendly. Nice that wine was served without charge."
Cons: "Announcements from the cockpit were hard to hear. Food has been better in past."
Cons: "Check in at Berlin was extremly slow. Staff was very unprofessional and not very friendly."
Pros: "Staff very pleasant"
Cons: "Evening snack was not the greatest breakfast was pretty food"
Pros: "Good selection of movies."
Cons: "Very small seats with no leg room and very little room on either side. The food was bad - even when compared to other airplane food. Plane is kept too warm."
Pros: "I am so grateful to have been provided delicious and filling vegan meals on this long flight. Thank you for offering a dietary option that is compassionate toward animals and contributes less to climate change! Now if only the planes were powered by clean, renewable energy... Hopefully that will become a reality someday very soon! Oh, and also the crew on this flight was exceptionally kind and helpful. Thank you so much!"
Cons: "I did not enjoy the turbulence, which I suppose is unavoidable. More importantly, I felt quite guilty about the greenhouse gas emissions of my flight. I have decided to cut down on my air travel as much as possible as a way of reducing my carbon footprint."
Cons: "Food had only vegetarian choices. No charging place and ambiance was noisy"
Pros: "Everything is top notch for an airline company."
Cons: "Nothing.... I enjoyed every moment of the flight."
Pros: "Decent meal (warm Pasta all'arrabbiata), nice little muffin for dessert and standard drinks (coffee & tea were a bonus, as they didn't serve any on a similar flight, from Barcelona to Amsterdam), friendly cabin crew."
Cons: "Poor timing - no reason for a 40 minute delay at take off (plane was fully boarded in time) Old aircraft, shabby, dirty and cramped seats. Coming from my connecting flight from Barcelona, I could clearly tell the different in the quality (and cleanliness) of the aircrafts."
Pros: "Due to lightening bolt strike our pre-Y2K era plane got switched out with a newer plane with modern media delivery at the seats."
Cons: "This caused a two hour delay in boarding and another 30 minutes on the JFK T4 tarmac. Same crappy headphones so it wasn’t the"
Pros: "The staff are the best European crews I have encountered. Naturally friendly, professional and fit looking. Nothing is too much trouble"
Pros: "The flight crew was nice. Plane departed/arrived on time."
Cons: "I paid €60 extra to sit in the emergency door seat to get more leg room but once.i was in the plane learned for more leg room I accepted a smaller seat next to a bathroom and no entertainment. I could not store my belongings near me. No power outlet to charge my devices for my own entertainment on a 7 hour flight. Dealing with constant traffic for the bathroom. I sat in the middle seat between two hours other men. It was a constant struggle arm space. After 7hours in the air I could not wait to get off the plane. If I didn't actually pay an extra €60 for the seat I may not feel bad but I feel like I might have been better off without paying for the "upgrade""
Pros: "Helpful and smiling cabin crew."
Pros: "The cabin crew were pretty good. That's about all that was good."
Cons: "I paid almost $400 for upgraded seats. When I got to the airport-- no seats-- both ways!! i didn't even have regular seat assignments. I had to choose from the last few seats available. The ticket agent, the gate agent and the cabin crew all did nothing to make up for the fact that their system screwed up and stuck me in a cramped coach seat in the back of the plane for 11 hours-- TWICE! Beyond that, KLM must have one of the oldest fleets in the sky. Both ways LAX->AMS->LAX, I was on a 30-35 year old 747 with no wifi, no power and a ten-year-old entertainment system. Never again."
Cons: "It was announced I can choose between fish and chicken meal but when I requested for fish meal, I was told it’s finished. My seat was 21, and it surprised me. If something can be changed about that then your services would be much appreciated. Thank you."
Pros: "From downloading the KLM app to the final touchdown of my final flight, everything was an ease, checking in, the option to change my seat, the service received was great."
Cons: "The ability to state a seat or meal preference within the app would be good but otherwise all was good."
Pros: "Eveything is well arranged"
Pros: "Of the multiple international airlines I recently flew with, I would have to say KLM was by far the best. Relaxing atmosphere, comfortable seating, great in-flight entertainment, although I have the go-go in-flight data/entertainment plan with t-mobile (highly recommended), the flight included a decent selection of movies, television programs, etc. The food far exceeded typical "airline quality," even for an international flight - and included a fabulous little snack box with locally sourced gourmet and specialty items such as chocolate from Belgium, fine cheeses from France, and crackers from England. Drinks = gratis, and crew was exceptionally attentive and went out of their way to make flight as pleasant as possible."
Pros: "Everything - Checkin, crew, food, entertainment"
Cons: "Our flight was canceled from Amsterdam to Bordeaux and did not receive any direction and had to find alternate flights for ourselves with the personal expense of using our own cell phones. Then our luggage lost for 3 days. Not happy!"
Pros: "Crew service"
Cons: "Flight delayed."
Pros: "The constant supply of food that was offered to you. The crew was nice and always helpful."
Cons: "The process of boarding in Amsterdam was not organized and felt more stressful than it needed to be."
Pros: "Fortunately, the plane was not full, so people could spread out a bit to create extra room. The food was really good! (surprisingly)."
Cons: "KLM's new configuration for this type of plane made the seats even narrower than before. While leg room was reasonable, the 3 abreast seating meant a lot of discomfort, especially in the row right in front of the restroom."
Pros: "Quick (relatively) flight."
Cons: "Skinniest seat ever. Couldn't even lean back. I now have hunchback."
Pros: "Food and staff were great"
Cons: "Entertainment system old and not as many options as other KLM flight. No power on aircraft for charging"
Pros: "Wide selection of entertainment, food was good."
Cons: "Boarding unorganized, but that may have been more of a passenger issue then KLM"
Cons: "The crew on the Lagos Amsterdam route (in economy) are particularly unfriendly and brusque. This is my experience each time i fly this route in economy"
Pros: "In general, it was ok"
Cons: "Yet again it was flight delay from KLM side."
Cons: "Taking off late caused me stress because I had transferring flight within less than two hours in transit originally. So we arrived later about 50 minutes so I had to manage my situation and find my next gate and be on time. And an other thing that I disliked was that I was allowed to have only one baggage which was very unusual for international flight between two countenances. And the crew was not polite enough so she made fun of my Cary-on. In short, I expected more from KLM which is famous for them being "Royal" but not acting as one of them."
