Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Cons: "A solution to the seat problem. If the seat only reclined 1/2 the distance they do now, the flight would be enjoyable."
Pros: "The service and food were good."
Cons: "As a petite person I find the seats in economy class small and cramped. When passengers in front of you recline their seat backs, there is very little room to move, making it difficult to get up and out of your seat."
Pros: "Crew was really nice can’t complain"
Cons: "Other airlines offer free beer or even hard liquor here u have to pay"
Pros: "fresh baked bread!"

Pros: "full aircraft"
Pros: "Punctual modern aircraft."
Cons: "The onky bad thing was luggage collection. Belt 6 tucked away. The luggage was so quick coming off that there was no-one to collect it . The belt was soon full and no.more luggage could enter the belt until the luggage on the belt was claimed"
Pros: "I liked how nice the crew was."
Cons: "I didn’t like how check in took a very long time. And they made me check in my carry on when it fit the restrictions and the overhead bins on board were not full."
Cons: "12 hours flight just one hot meal."
Pros: "Food was tasty. Crew was very good."
Cons: "Legroom was horrible, and I’m 5’-7”! Ancient entertainment units."
Pros: "Fast boarding and deplaning."
Cons: "Not clear seat bookings cost $35. I was assigned the last row. Extra short width, pitch, couldn't fully recline (A340-300) Terrible food. Super old, tired plane. Crappy in-flight entertainment with non-intuitive controls. Poor air conditioning. I felt like I was stuffed in a cage for 7 hours. Way worse than United domestic."
Cons: "They canceled the flight and took me to another company with a stop in Turkey,it was a really bad and uncomfortable flight And I’m really disappointed!!!!!"
Pros: "crew great smooth flight"
Cons: "no problem and happy crew."
Pros: "Nothing remarkable"
Cons: "I got up to use the bathroom and I was seated in the 10th row. When I was trying to make my way back to my seat, the beverage service had started. They were at the 12th row and after bumping into me, the flight attendant asked me to back up and wait until the beverage service was over to go back to my seat. This was a flight from Frankfurt to Zurich, only about an hour long, and I would have easily spent half of it standing up had I complied with their request. I had to be pushy and ask them to just back up the cart 2 feet so I could get to my seat, which only took them 5 seconds. This was a very rude, illogical, and unreasonable request from the Swiss Air crew."
Pros: "The hospitality & staff were impeccable."
Pros: "The crew was very efficient and very helpful. They were constantly attending to passenger’s needs."
Cons: "The landing was a little rough, but my friend said that it was windy here in NY. Otherwise excellent all around."
Pros: "Food and movies"
Cons: "Staff was not attentative. We were very misinformed on the seat upgrade we paid $100 for. And our liggsge was damaged and they had us walking all over ohare airport for no reason at all instead of addressing the issue at Swiss air."
Pros: "Chocolate was good, a bigger piece, or 2 of them would be better"
Cons: "I liked everything except the airplane itself, which I hated. I was fortunate enough to get an exit row on my long flight going over; I did not get lucky on my way home. The flights between Zurich and Brindisi were more comfortable than the long haul flights. The long haul flights are abominable and should be outlawed by governments as they are currently configured. The boy next to me literally could not fit his legs/thigh bones in the space provided by his seat. I did okay as I am not tall, until the woman in front of me decided to lean back. It is not her fault, however, though I thought nasty things about her and periodically tried to dig my knees into her back to get her to lift up her seat. The fault belongs entirely to Swiss Air, which chooses to treat human customers as steerage. The only thing that made the experience worse was the impossibility of choosing my seat online for my return because I had only a smart phone with not-great wifi available. Choosing one's seat should not be dependent on having good wifi and a computer, however. It is bad practice to "sell" seat choices. The families around me were not able to sit together because of this shoddy, greedy practice on the part of the airline. It is also not fair, subsequently, that other passengers are faced with giving up the seats they've chosen, or been given, to assist families in sitting together. Honestly, the extent of the greed on the part of airlines nowadays is astonishing. What used to be a thoroughly enjoyable way of traveling has become an ordeal at best."
Cons: "Business class service The hostess forgot my request twice. ..."

Pros: "Food was excellent and staff was friendy."
Cons: "Wifi was expensive."
Pros: "The crew was very attentive and friendly"

Pros: "Nothing because the airplane seats were terribly uncomfortable!"
Cons: "The bar between the seats is not going up all the way"
Pros: "the entertainment selection was above an beyond."
Cons: "The food was really not great. The meals were tiny and low quality. I understand there are restrictions when on an aircraft, but the meals were the size of snacks and not understanding of allergies at all. (Ie, cheese was on everything.)"
Pros: "Like to have the gluten free option for food. I know i chose it when i got the ticket but i did not get it."
Pros: "The flight was very good what I didnt like in that when i booked the flight it never said that my ticket wouldnt be able to add lifemiles for star alliance. That was only the reason i chose this airline. When i ask about my lifemiles the answer was that my class of ticket didnt get any lifemile. I felt cheated. You should put it somewhere visibly so the person knows before booking. If i knew it before i never chose this airline."
Pros: "Super nice and skilled staff, everyone was great to interact with."
Cons: "Not a thing."
Pros: "Best flight in years. Attentive crew, very good food and wine, on time. Strongly recommended."
Cons: "our flight attendant was impatient and bossy two days after the flight my husband had to be taken to the emergency room - diagnosed with pulmonary embolism SWISS MUST DO A WAY BETTER JOB CALLING ATTENTION TO REGULAR EXERCISE ON THE PLANE!!"
Cons: "No me gusto . porque quando compre las pasajes con ustedes por la pagina me decia q estaba incluydo 1 maleta de 23 kg y otra de mano 8 kg. por el precio total pagado y cuando llegue ñas mañetas no estavam incluydas y tuve que pagalas. Yo ley las condiciones de mi pasaje y me daba exactamente esto que tenia derecho a las maletas. Grande falla de ustedes. ya no comprare mas con su compania K"

Cons: "Good overall"
Cons: "Made me check in my carry on bag and changed my reserved window seat to middle seat amidst 2 children I don't know. Whe I got on the plane there was plenty of room for my carry on despite the boarding staff saying there wasn't. I offered to upgrade my ticket to business class the attendant at the desk laughed at me. Older woman was very rude, condescending and not accommodating."
Pros: "Excellent service ans quality flight"
Pros: "At Montreal I was made to go through the customs, exit the airport, get the boarding pass, go through security check again. I was subjected to unnecessary hassle as Air Canada did not issue me boarding pass for the section of Motreal to Zurich at Los Angeles airport. Had I known that I have to come out of the airport, I would not have bought this ticket. Hopefully same ordeal is not repeated while returning from Zurich to Los Angeles via Montreal on June 30, 2016. There was a long queque at Montreal to board the place as it was not organized in zone wise."
Pros: "Crew great"
Cons: "Seats cramped"
Cons: "We didn't had entertainment"
Pros: "Good people."
Cons: "Bad food."
"My husband and I LOVE DELTA SERVICE… the crew, everybody are so nice…"
"TsA was fast and efficient. Boarding was effortless, fast. Having a new and clean plane only amplified the experience"
Pros: "Professional crew, no fanfare, standard was excellence."
Cons: "Faster flight time in air..."
Pros: "The crew’s positive energy and great service were truly amazing. Kudos Delta!"
Cons: "Delta flies a lot of the CRJ planes, even on relatively longer trips. Traveling first class, the seats are a little wider than in coach and have a little more leg room, but calling it "first class" is a bit of an exaggeration. It's more like what coach used to be before the days of the flying sardine cans."
Pros: "Great service"
Cons: "Messed up my luggage in Atlanta. Gate said baggage was going to domestic. Ended up in international terminal. Added almost an hour of back and forth between terminals."
Pros: "WARDA at the Miami Gate H07 was awesome. She went above and beyond. Everyone else was very helpful but you can get tell she does more than the norm. LOVE LOVE LOVE the free entertainment in the individual seats. Perfect for families!"
Cons: "No complaints"
Pros: "Good experience"
Cons: "Better snacks"
Cons: "I’m skinny and 5’2” and I felt squashed. Like I was in a dollhouse. The space is too small, it’s too uncomfortable. I couldn’t take my zip front sweater off. The seats and space are not proportional to humans."
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Being on time. Trapped in plane for 2 hours"
Pros: "Crew was great as usual these days with delta. Boarding was easy and efficient. Madrid staff booked us on a later flight in Atlanta as a precaution and it turned out we needed it. Really helpful!"
Cons: "Plane had crumbs on the seat and floor when we got on."
Cons: "Bring back the Narita to Minneapolis."
Cons: "We sat for an hour on the tarmac with the plane at about 80-85 degrees and everyone sweating. Once we took off the flight attendants kept turning the cabin lights on and off and serving dinner (on an overnight flight is that really necessary?!) and waking us up. Also plane was old and uncomfortable."
Cons: "The flight was 2.5 hours late. Then it was freezing in the flight. I let the crew know and it warmed up at the front and back of the plane but it was unbearable in the middle. It took me two hours to warm back up!"
Pros: "On flight entertainment was very good. Flight was smooth and ran ahead of schedule."
Cons: "They were out of vegetarian meal options. Really poor for a six hour flight. Also, the family behind us was atrocious, but that’s not Delta’s fault."
Pros: "Good service"
Cons: "Video system locked up at my seat"
Pros: "We eventually got to Atlanta."
Cons: "Delta is flying a lot of commuter planes, which are pretty cramped. We usually fly first class, and the seating is essentially the same as what coach used to be. There's nothing "first class" about it. And of course, the flight was hours late."
Cons: "My flight from Chicago was two hours late and that's why I missed the flight from Atlanta to Buenos Aires. No one helped and did not know that the flight was delayed and I had to find a place to sleep. I'm not satisfied with the experience and I have not yet arrived in Argentina because of the whole"
Pros: "Crew was amazing."
Cons: "Delayed departure due to late crew arrival. Not a huge deal."
Pros: "Zee was our flight attendant and she was absolutely wonderful. Personable, attentive, and she made sure each and every person on the plane was comfortable and happy, going so far as to move solo passengers to empty rows so they could have more space. I wish she could be on every flight I take."
Pros: "I was rerouted through Detroit after it was apparent I would miss my connecting flight. The flight was good and I have no complaints."
Cons: "There was a mechanical delay and I ended up missing my flight. Even though I arrived 10 minutes prior to departure."
Pros: "Equipment felt a bit dated. No entertainment system, which was fine with me. Skipped the offered snack. Just had water. Flight was onntime."
Pros: "The Delta service desk was great! We wanted to get an earlier flight home and the Delta Rep got us on standby quickly and with a smile."
Cons: "Some chaos getting on the flight. The area they have set up for the different sections to wait before getting called weren't marked very well so everyone was bunched up and confused. Once they started calling the sections it was fine. Not sure why they even had the marked areas."
Pros: "Take off on time, arrived early, pleasant flight attendant"
Cons: "Had to sit on tarmac after arriving early"
Pros: "Direct flight from Indy to CDG is great."
Pros: "On time, pleasant and friendly flight attendant, no unexpected issues or problems."
Cons: "Grumpy gate attendants at YUL! Could not hear the captain’s comments over the PA system. Shouldn’t the volume be checked every so often? We were offered only water or coffee, bad enough, then there was no milk or cream on board, so water or black coffee... not very impressive! And there was no entertainment so I’d rate that zero but the scale only goes as low as one star."
Pros: "It's a fast flight and boarding was quick."
Cons: "The terminal at LGA airlines is terrible."
Cons: "Customs never to hire more agents to work in the early mornings."
Pros: "On time, and pleasant flight. Flight attendants were first class: very competent."

Pros: "Friendly and courteous attendants."

Pros: "Good food, excellent service"
Cons: "Seats did not have enough storage."
Cons: "Not much to read"
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: "Newer plane"
Cons: "Not comfortable at all, doesn’t feel like any upgrade from regular economy seat."
Pros: "Not applied"
Cons: "Not applied"

Pros: "Fligth were on time"
Cons: "My flight from Montreal to Atlanta was 2:30 min Left at 6:10 arrive at 8:30 roughly Tried twice to get to my connection earlier and get 9:30 instead of 12:09 fligth to Daytona Delta was not flexible to allow me to book saying i did not have 55 min in between fligth which i had than lear n it will cost $75.00 to change the fligth - What? Very disappointed of Delta - lost 3 hrs at the airport today"
Pros: "Same as above."
Pros: "Couldn’t find a thing."
Cons: "My husband booked West Jet by phone. They spelled my name wrong on the ticket which caused hours of delays tryng to check in...ultimately leading to our missing the flight. The time spent was around 6 hours....4 of them the were on one continuous phone call where we were bumped back and forth between West Jet and Delta. The problem was never fixed and we haven’t flown home yet. We have new flights booked on Delta but only because Delta took pity....West Jet does no refunds or reticketing. If flights are missed you're out on of luck!"
Pros: "Nice regional jet!"
Cons: "It was a regional jet..."
Pros: "Flight was delayed by 2+ hours, Delta (running the flight for westjet) sent 1 email about the flight being delayed to 4:45 which was inconsistent with the gate signage and agent who said 3:45, flight ended up leaving at 5:45PM. No reasons were provided beyond the incoming flight from LGA hadn't come in. Why hadn't it come in? When could we expect to leave YUL? No answers."
Pros: "Delta automatically rebooked our flight due to delays. We were rebooked on Air Canada"
Cons: "Plane kinda of old. Just cookies and coffee"
Pros: "Thomas our steward was excellent."
Cons: "No Wi-Fi"
Cons: "Seats are very small."
Pros: "Comfortable and Clean"

Pros: "The crew"
Cons: "More support"
Pros: "The flight was on schedule. The pilot was great and avoided turbulence."
Cons: "Compared to my SF to Munich flight, the return trip was a nightmare. The flight attendants were nowhere to be found. Cold face towels, ran out of food and drink. Flight attendants allowing a school field trip to take over the flight. My seat was kicked for 7 hours straight, they did nothing."
Pros: "The crew were nice and the service very good. The layover was short."
Cons: "Our luggage was lost so we had to go back to the airport the day after. In economy class the Last 3 central rows or even more, have no carryon storage. We were stuck with our carryons for over 7 hours during the flight Montreal Munich. This is the case if you fly their new A350-390."
Pros: "The seats were comfortable"
Cons: "The food could be better"
Cons: "The flight was delayed as we were waiting for documents required for our entry to the UK - surely these should have been ready in advance? Perhaps a taste of things to come if (when) we sadly leave the EU. Same poor sandwiches."
Cons: "Impossible to do beter."
Pros: "Smooth flight"
Cons: "Stop overcharge people for 1 luggage :( very disappointed"

Cons: "Flight was delayed so there was a bit of a chaos boarding but it has nothing to do with the service itself."
Cons: "The first flight for this trio was cancelled .. stop with automated cron jobs"
Pros: "Good staff and food."
Cons: "Flight was late and boarding was unorganized. When the person sitting in front of me moved their chair it hit my head and moved all my stuff, this should not happen. We should not feel our area moved because the person moved their seat in front of us."
Pros: "Flight staff were kind and friendly"
Cons: "I could not push my seat back and the man in front of me pushed his back leaving me very little room"
Pros: "Service, food, and entertainment was great!"

Cons: "Minimal entertainment but understandable for a short flight."
Pros: "The flight itself was on time, the food was basic, just like drink."
Cons: "Staff didn't ask a lady next to me to sit properly whilst she was almost laying with her shoes very near to my seat. I had to be careful not to clean her shoe soles with my clothes. Also, after arrival to Birmingham there was an unnecessary crowd created by releasing people from busses from 2 different flights simultanously."
Cons: "Rubbish boarding staff"
Pros: "Usual good service for economy class on this airline"
Pros: "Crew were efficient and pleasant"
Cons: "Uncomfortable seats and could not recline seats"
Pros: "The entertainment options were great, The plane was very clean and the bathrooms was HUGE!"
Cons: "uncomfortable seat, off set from the seat in front of me so my entertainment screen was at an odd angle to watch. Food was ok but they had a sauce on the chicken that was not very appetizing. It actually made my wife sick and lets just say she did not keep her dinner. Also, I asked for a scotch after take off and it was a small shot and after dinner I asked for another and it was just a whisper. It did not even cover one ice cube. It would have been nice to get at least a full shot."
Pros: "Everything went according as planned. No problem at all."
Cons: "There is nothing I didn’t like."
Cons: "The passenger behaind, was a tall guy. All the 7 hours flight i had to fight him to allow me puting my back sest dowm on his hearting legs. Why didnt hay extra and seat where it fits his size?"
Pros: "The crew were excellent and plane was comfortable"
Cons: "The plane was way out of the terminal and I had asked for assistance which I had going and most of coming back until the last part getting on to the plane at Lufthansa no-one came at Birmingham either. I struggled to collect my case and walk through to the exit."
Pros: "Flight was on time."
Cons: "I was sitting at the tale end. Seat was extremely uncomfortable. I was trying to rest yet flight attendants and several passengers were talking loud. Crews kept forgetting passengers orders/requests. A lady sitting besides me pushed a call bottom 3 times to get noticed. Flight attendants were too busy chatting with passengers to help other passengers. I have never seen that type of services before."
Pros: "Great staff"
Cons: "small seat despite being in business class"
Pros: "Premium economy gives you extra confort, more space to sleep better."
Cons: "The flight was delayed 40 minutes."

Cons: "I don't have my luggage yet!"

Pros: "The people, the service, the seats, the timeliness... (I did not fly from Washington to Munich on Lufthansa; I flew back on Lufthansa.)"
Cons: "Nothing. They were great."
Pros: "Solid selection of new release films."
Cons: "Emergency landing, information not willingly provided. Passengers threatened with legal action for taking pictures of the emergency landing and aftermath. It appeared crew were more concerned with bad PR than transparency and comfort of passengers."
Pros: "Everything I like with LH"
Pros: "Promptness, profesional and nice service. Everything overall."
Pros: "The plane was clean. Some of the attendants were very kind and helpful about our situation (the plane left 35 minutes late from Athens and we were in danger of missing our next flight to the US). Food was pretty good. Small portions as usual."
Cons: "Pretty big delay before departure, ended up in very stressful conditions for the rest of the trip. It became pretty obvious that we were cutting very close to the boarding time for our next flight (arrival scheduled for 4:05 pm and our flight to Chicago barding on 4:20 pm). One of the flight attendants kindly offered us to move up to the front seats of the plane on the last 15 minutes of the flight (with our luggage) so that we can exit as soon as possible. We moved (per his suggestions) and we were treated rudely by the young lady attendant of the Business Class. We explained that we moved after the suggestion of their other flying attendant. She called her supervisor on us, who in return, rudely, arrogantly and loudly started to berate us on how we "dared" to move ourselves to the Business class. After explaining the whole story again and showing her the tickets, she allowed us to stay to those seats for the last 10 minutes of the flight. We asked if an airport cart could be called to transfer us to the next gate, and they said no. We asked for information on the gate for Chicago and they did not provide one. Unfortunately, the plane landed very far from the gates. We had to enter the airport bus, which traveled for about 15 minutes before we got on a gate. There, we faced about 35 minutes of passport procedures and waiting lines. At that point, 5 minutes before our plane for Chicago was supposed to take off, we asked the passport pre-check officer what we should do (we assumed we would be missing the plane at that point) and he told us very rudely "When you REALLY miss your plane, then come back and ask me"!!!!!!!!! Then we passed through passport check and we were told to run to our gate (which by that time was no longer showing on the computer screen, and we knew about the changed number, ONLY because KAYAK sent the update to us-THANK YOU!!!). We ran for about 12 minutes. We arrived at our gate late by about 25 minutes after our flight was supposed to leave. There we were asked why we were running and when we told the guy who screened our boarding passes he responded "Well, running is good for your health..."!!!!! At that point I would have liked to give him a piece of my mind...We were told by the same guy that due to airport security issues, Frankfurt airport had so many delays in the last couple of weeks that planes know to wait for the late passengers. Couldn't someone have told us that before? We have NEVER been treated so poorly by an airline and we will NOT fly with them again. The LUFTHANSA customer service was terrible. We have not encountered such arrogance and lack of information for many years...Shame on them! AND we were not the only Americans running. There were families with little children and older people, etc etc, just because the Lufthansa attendants and ground crew did not feel like giving us the information we needed!!!"
Pros: "direct flight"
Cons: "only one type of food offered. presented in a rude way."
Cons: "The gate printed on my ticket was not the gate the plane departed from. Not only was it not, but there was no announcement or warning this would happen. I only realized because 15 mins after the scheduled boarding time I went to find out what was going on. There should have been an announcement."
Pros: "quiet on-time flight"
Cons: "Overnight flights are usually a pain in the neck, which is obviously not the airline's fault"
Cons: "The connections for audio wasn'y working, false contact..."
Cons: "The delay and the lack of movies. Seats are very small. I was sitting near a larger passenger and it was very tight. We had over two hours delay for mechanical problems with the plane."

Cons: "Seat pitch could've been more. At least let us know via Whatsapp that the plane is delayed, or at which belt the bags would come out. This basic info was lacking."

Pros: "Friendly and efficient crew. I travel KLM often and always enjoy the flights."

Cons: "Can't think of anything."
Pros: "The crew was fantastic! Our needs were constantly being met and just about the time you thought you might want a snack or a meal, the attendants were already heading down the aisle. Because of an allergic reaction, I asked for ice a number of times and the attendants were more than happy to meet my needs."
Cons: "The seats were very close together. The trip from New York to Amsterdam seemed a lot more comfortable than the return flight. The food from NYC JFK was better than the food from Amsterdam. The movie selection on both flights was a little disappointing."
Cons: "Flight was cancelled."
Cons: "Nothing good to say about this flight. The plane was old with no entertainment. The sits where very compact and not comfortable at all. The food was a sweet bread and water. The flight attendants were rushing and will take a while if you needed anything. I felt like I was taking a bus with graffiti all over the place."
Pros: "Boarding was as expected, crew & food were ok. Nothing else positive to extract out of this flight."
Cons: "Delayed flight, horrible baggae policy when the flight is actually operated by a partner of the company you bought the ticket from and not the actual company. Dirty seats, no in-flight entertainment whatsoever (not even a magazine)."
Cons: "Actually the Welcome on board announcement. The part where they special welcome loyalty program members. I do not get that... I am an explorer holder my self, but really?? so other paying customers are not as welcome. This is leftovers from the older days.."
Pros: "Good Experience"
Cons: "Nothing much"
Pros: "Short flight with good communication."
Cons: "Nil to complain."
Cons: "Please Endeavour to put the expiration date on the food served in the flight."
Pros: "Crew were friendly. Flight was comforyable smooth and on time. Nice snack."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Crowded seating, 20-year old video system, headphones that did not match the two-jack system, lackluster service in flight. Generally my experience with KLM has been good, but this was well below average."
Pros: "Flight was lovely, crew were friendly and very helpful and food was delicious!! We travelled with assistance for mum and it was excellent and we were kept updated all through the flight."
Cons: "Per usual, KLM can't seem to figure out the order of boarding the plane. Should be business - priority - everyone else. Instead they do priority first, and that's usually two-thirds of the passengers. Strange choice of in-flight movies; no accounting for taste, I guess."
Pros: "Loved the service...everything was excellent"
Cons: "The bus class seat was a bit narrow at the feet"
Pros: "Everything. Staff incredible."
Cons: "Why do the crew have to slam the overhead and catering compartments to get them to shut?"
Pros: "Staff at Schipol airport were lovely and very helpful. Cabin crew were friendly and efficient. On board snack was nice."
Cons: "Elbow room is a little bit awkward and I didn't get to sit next to my fiance WE will still definitely recommend KLM though!"
Cons: "One of the senior stewardesses we're very rude. Whether it's her personal opinion or KLM's policy, it's unreasonable to think that a 3 years old child could or should hold her pipi over 20 minutes, while they slowly and inefficiently trying to give out food. Several parents were there with the request to let us through to the toilet with small children and she smiled in our face and said "no, we will finish first and than you can go". She might be not fit for the job anymore, but KLM can't afford this kind of treatment."
Pros: "The crew were lovely and welcoming. We was given snacks and drinks on the flight which was great. Take off was a bit delayed but boarding was smooth. Couldn't complain about the comfort as was only just over an hours flight."
Pros: "Same as above"
Pros: "Same as above"
Pros: "Excellent service, excellent food."
Pros: "Boarding was very efficient."
Cons: "Limited movie selection. Crew seemed stressed. Gave me wrong meal and then swaped for the right one. I asked for Diet Coke and was given white wine. Food quality was not good."
Pros: "Unexpected surprise--even on a 1 hour flight at noon, they gave us a sandwich!"
Cons: "Very slow service. I wanted to by several goods from duty free. But crew served only first 20 rows of aircraft."
Pros: "KLM Is an impressive flying experience. We enjoyed the comfortable seats, the in-flight entertainment, and the food. The flight attendants are top notch as well."
Cons: "The only complaint I have regarding my most recent flight was the incredibly rude service staff whom we experienced at the front counter at check-in. After a harrowing cab ride to the airport in which our driver continuously ignored my request to follow the GPS insisting that he knew faster shortcuts, we arrived 40 minutes later than intended. Additionally he dropped us off at the wrong terminal such that we finally arrived at the KLM gate an hour later than we had planned. This was especially frustrating as we are traveling with two small children and made every effort to be punctual and leave early to be sure we got there with time to spare. Not the case today. All of that I could deal with, but when we arrived at the KLM counter, and I apologized to the attendant staff member that we were late and explained that our cab driver got lost, she responded by chastising us first in Spanish and then in broken English. She made sure to make it clear to us that it was our fault and we should not blame the Argentinian cabdriver. The cabdriver was not actually Argentinian, but that is totally besides the point. I was totally taken aback to be treated so rudely as a greeting at the airline counter. My wife share the same sentiment. Nothing like this has ever happened to us before. Thank God, every single airport personnel and of course KLM staff member on board was incredibly kind and accommodating of our children subsequent to this. It saved what otherwise could've been a terrible experience."
Pros: "The crew saw I was travelling with my young son; baby and elderly parents. We were placed at the front of the crew and were kind enough to allow me to board first."
Cons: "Most passengers had to put cabin bags into the hold. These were taken at the gate, it would have been nicer to have had this notified by text or when checking in so the bags could have been left at the check in desk."
Cons: "Waited for over an hour for trams to retrieve us from the aircraft."
Pros: "Excellence view of London performered by the pilot. Very please with that."
Cons: "All good except for the seat, let my neck with a bit of pain."
Cons: "There was a delay of more than an hour so I had to run for my connecting flight then my bags didn't make the flight."
Pros: "Good food and great crew!"
Cons: "Being 6'2" is the worst when traveling economic."
Pros: "Great crew!"
Cons: "No complimentary water! The first flight I ever had like that. Very disappointing!"
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Our trip to Vienna from London was less appealing than the one from Montreal to London. No food, no entertainment and seat space was cramped which reminded me of my Air Transat experiences."
Cons: "had to check my tiny carryon because of being in the fourth boarding group (despite checking in 24 hours before)"
Pros: "Food was good , very comfortable seats and the time we departed to the time we arrive I will rate it 10 out of ten I felt as if I was on a 2 hours flight . It’s was just one of those wonderful BA flight I can’t forget"
Cons: "It’s was just the hassle to get from Terminal 5 to Terminal 3 with luggage but made it all in all"
Pros: "On time, comfy seats and helpful staff members. Nothing else to ask"
Cons: "Nothing to dislike."
Cons: "Feels like BA has turned into Ryan Air. £65 for a checked bag, cramped seating and not even a free water."
Pros: "Food was decent and they came back to offer us another drink."
Cons: "Plane was old and dated. No usb or outlets to charge any devices on a 10.5 hour flight. Also seating was small and cramped. I wish there was a way to automatically get an isle seat or emergency row seat if you are over 6ft tall."
Pros: "Smooth flight."
Cons: "Uncomfortable seats"
Pros: "Staff and Crew amazing and very friendly on this trip"
Cons: "Nothing negative to report best flight for some time"
Pros: "We didn't crash."
Cons: "Flight attendants repeatedly increased the amount of alcohol given to drunk passengers while those passengers spilled food and drinks on me and could not keep their bodies out of my personal space."
Pros: "Great crew. Smooth flight. Excellent timing."
Cons: "It’s been a while since I’ve seen a load out that old on BA. Almost 1st gen personal IFE. The plan as a whole was fikthy"
Pros: "I did not order food I liked the new safety Videos"
Pros: "Friendly staff. The food was Ok. The flight was on time."
Cons: "My onboard entertainment system's headphone didnt work. I Was told there is nothing they can do about it, which is fair enough, but i dont think it was fair on me. People kept bumping into my shoulder but i guess there isn't much that can be done about it."
Pros: "i got there alive."
Cons: "narrow seats, no legroom, small entertainment screens, OK food (but they are British, so not much expectation), then no gangway off the plane, we had to wait a long time for the stairs, then everyone down the stairs onto a bus. staff was friendly enough, but once they fed us and one round of drinks, they were gone until they rushed us thru breakfast (no coffee refills). good thing the flight was cheap!"
Cons: "increasingly reducing space. person sitting next to me overweight and made it uncomfortable for me during the entire trip."
Cons: "All was good."
Pros: "On time and staff"
Cons: "Too little space for seating!"
Pros: "This flight the only bonus was I actually had a seat."
Cons: "Two flight attendants to service the whole of Euro class meant waiting nearly two hours to be served a bottle of water and a sandwich. Too much time is lost trying to cook food and take the money. Just add £5 to every ticket and give the food as part of the service, you are not a budget airline Plus dont rub our noses in it by bringing meals from the first class galley to feed the crew at the rear of the plane."
Pros: "Boarding was smooth, aided by being one of the last to board as I was relaxing in the lounge! Boarding was started earlier than listed and complete by the boarding time, long before the flight was due to leave. Crew were polite and courteous, even going to some extra effort to get me a semblance of a meal."
Cons: "Booked this flight every last minute and didn't order a Vegan option at the time. Was flying business over lunch time so a meal was served. However there was no vegetarian option on the menu. I expected there to be a vegetarian option at least, and I would work around my dietary choice, but with no vegetarian option, this was impossible to do. In the end the crew managed to rustle up something from the Crew meal and I was able to then have snippets of meal segments that suited my requirements. How could this be prevented in the future? Make available a vegetarian choice on all meal served flights. A Meat eater can eat vegetarian at a push but not the other way around. I know if might be too much to ask to make that a Vegan option as standard, because then every one can eat it, but just putting that out there."
Pros: "The crew were super helpful and attentive."
Cons: "Food was not the best, the leg room was ridiculously small and the entertainment system had some issues, but all in was a nice trip"
Pros: "Crew was nice, food quality good"
Cons: "Single Breakfast bar for breakfast was pretry minimal"
Pros: "The dinner was surprisingly good! Movie selection was great and the wine was also surprisingly decent."
Cons: "The economy seats are extremely close together. I'm not a large person 5'6") but my knees were practically touching the seat in front of me. There seems to be an inch or 2 more of space on American carriers, which makes quite a difference on a trans-Atlantic flight."
Cons: "Landed in London late missed the connection flight. BA only had 1 flt a day going to Santorini....Next days flt completely booked...Had to fly from Lon to Madrid to Athens then to Santorini.....Took 38 hrs traveling time to get to our destination...Not a happy camper!!!!!"
Cons: "The flight left 2 hours late. The seats were cramped."
Cons: "Three hours late."
Pros: "The crew The nice and friendly staff at the airport"
Cons: "Assigning one luggage per traveller"
Pros: "The food and staff were great."
Cons: "The plane was changed and no.one alerted us that our seats were relocated. Qhen we went to board the shuttle bus to the tarmac we were.pullednout of the.line and made to wait 25 minutes and ended up.being the last people to board. We arrived at the airport 2 hours in advance and cpuld have handled this in.advance if we had been notified properly. The BA employee checking us in didn't care that he pulled us and made us wait.... we were very unhappy as to how this was handled."
Pros: "The crew were very nice and helpful"
Cons: "The inflight entertainment system was at least 15 years old and it did not work in my seat despite numerous attempts to reset. As someone who cannot sleep on flights I was very uncomfortable and annoyed that I had to sit through 12 hours of flying with nothing to watch or listen to."
Pros: "Two empty seats next to me"
Cons: "1.Cabin staff would not move trolley to allow me to pass to give a gift sitting forward of me for an unreasonably long time. 2. Being accused of being abusive when I complained"
Cons: "I was sleeping during meal time and when I woke up an hour later they told me that my meal was now below the temperature that they're allowed to serve it because it's dangerous. so I got bread instead. It's ridiculous either they serve me half the meal still frozen and the other half too hot too touch or it's considered unsafe."
Pros: "Plane had a bit more legroom than others I've been on recently. That was a pleasant surprise"
Cons: "Airlines in general need to do a better job of controlling the boarding process (using the groups to board) and controlling the amount of luggage people bring on. Peoples definition of a "personal item" are skewed."
Pros: "Crew was terrific! Comfortable equipment, nice food offered. Generally felt the entire BA team had a great attitude which makes a world of difference regarding the experience."
Cons: "Flying is uncomfortable and painful. The seats are thin with little padding. I kept getting poked and prodded by the person in the seat behind me, and it wasn't even a little kid kicking the seat. I have a problem with my foot, and there is piece of hard plastic or something that runs the length of the plane, under the aisle seat. I had to make sure my foot didn't rest on time because it was painful to my foot."
Cons: "Charging money even for a soda. Seriously so cheap."
Pros: "Helpful crew."
Cons: "No food and entertainment which is expected for the short 2 hr flight."
Pros: "Friendly staff and decent food, loved the entertainment and maps screen."
Cons: "We paid for upgraded seats but ended up at the rear of the plane? Very disappointing, I have a refund request in the works."
Pros: "The crew and the cabin But why we can not get bording for all the trip?"
Pros: "My mother is disabled and the crew were ALL so helpful and kind. Amazing!"
Cons: "Had to purchase even coffee, no complimentary anything."
Pros: "Friendly, efficient and caring. A comfortable experience at a very low price."
Pros: "shorter flight but they still offered us food, a drink, and tea. Also, shortly after the food was served a flight attended offered free newspapers."
Cons: "boarding was a little odd. we had to take a bus across the tarmac and board the pane from the ground. We were not sure what entrance was closest to our sets ended up going the long way."
Cons: "Late departure"
Pros: "helpful and pleasant counter agent, crew"
Cons: "leg room"
Pros: "I liked the travel assist. They were very nice and helpful. Made checking in fast and courteous. I will use the assistant service again when traveling. I have trouble walking long distances and this was helpful. The girl that helped me in Chicago to wait and get to the hotel after I had to do an overnight was so great. Thank you for this service. It is like the help in the Trains in England. Again thank the young girl that helped me. She is gold star in my book. I loved the Renaissance in Chicago. Good work"
