Your check in area was confusing. First no one was there and then we were directed to Delta ro check in. How was I supposed to know this?we were there for an hour before discovering where to go. I looked on line for checking at Virgin Atlantic but it should have been Delta. I wasn't contacted by email for check in durections.
Pros: "Great service and comfortable ride excellent staff"
Cons: "Cannot expect better service"
Cons: "The service on Virgin Australia is quite poor. They are barely around. The seats are also only mediocre"
Pros: "Very friendly crew. The meals are good, nice variety. Hot food is hot."
Cons: "Seats are not the most comfortable and sometimes the screen on the entertainment tv doesn't work that easily."
Pros: "Excellent service!"
Pros: "The flight was so delayed I missed my connecting flight to jfk."
Cons: "The flight was so delayed I missed my connecting flight to jfk."
Pros: "The crew were very attentive, they tried hard to help me with comfort, drinks etc. I didnt have food as it was so good in the Virgin Clubhouse!"
Cons: "The bed! When you flip it flat its rock hard, and the matress they provide is useless! Need foam matress to really make it more comfotable. If the seat reclined another few inches i wouldnt bother flipping it."
Pros: "I had one of the few empty seats next to me."
Cons: "The food is awful. Not enough toilets."
Pros: "My flight was canceled and Virgin Atlantic gave us a free room in the hotel Ramada. My next flight was at 18:55 and I asked Virgin Atlantic agent am I allowed to stay in the room until time for my flight comes, he confirmed yes and gave me breakfast, lunch, and dinner voucher. However, next day around 12 I got call from Front Desk that I have to leave my room right away because it's time to chack out and If I want to stay longer I have to pay. I called Virgin Atlantic agancy again and the agent run my information and said to me I can stayin the room longer. After that I called front desk to confirm that but they said they didn't hear anything from Virgin Atlantic and I have to leave the room by 1pm. All of this was really unpleasant!"
Cons: "I didn't like anything. I didn't like the communication between Virgin Atlantic with travelers, communication between Virgin Atlantic and hotel Ramada. Everything was really poorly."
Pros: "They didn't serve any refreshments or even water"
Pros: "Staff. Very couteous.polite. friendly."
Cons: "Good.entertainment choices."
Pros: "The crew were friendly."
Cons: "The food was okay. There were more tasty options traveling to Heathrow versus from Heathrow to the NYC. The boarding process was a mess. We had to wait in an enormous line and then take a bus to the flight."
Pros: "We paid extra for exit row seats so we had good leg space"
Cons: "The seats are so small that only your backside fits on it and we are not big people. There is no support for the thigh and I had severe cramps after leaving the aircraft. The flight to LA with Virgin Australia was far more comfortable."
Pros: "The cabin crew were excellent!"
Cons: "I paid extra for Economy Delight seats for me and my wife. Shortly after take-off, our calm and comfortable more or less empty section of the aircraft was colonised by an extended family of Orthodox Jews in a kind of airborne West Bank situation. They weren’t in our section of the cabin at all to start with, and I don’t know why they were apparently able to get a free upgrade that I had to pay £100 for. We went from being in an almost empty cabin to being basically sat in the middle of an Orthodox Jewish kindergarten. It was awful! They were noisy, messy, were constantly getting in and out of their seats, the back of my seat kept getting kicked, and there was even a baby crawling around the aisle. We were surrounded. I have no idea whether this is characteristic of Orthodox Jewish family life, or just a completely inconsiderate family. They didn’t exactly ruin my flight, but they didn’t make it enjoyable either. I asked to be moved. The cabin crew were great and acknowledged the difficulty of the situation. My wife lost her window seat but at least we still had the legroom and peace and quiet."
Pros: "2 bags each 23 kilogram each total 46"
Cons: "Coffee. I don't know what it was but the worst coffee I have ever had and I tried it 3 times"
Pros: "The boarding, the seats."
Cons: "The food was so-so, and I did not get my choices, perhaps because I was at the back."
Cons: "Staff was not concerned about anything, vague and uncaring..this was my son flying across the Atlantic idiots!! One pissed mom!!!"
Pros: "Flew virgin after long time and kind of disappointment with comfortable seats. seats space is tight and legs space as well with some box under the seat."
Cons: "seat comfortable and let space"
Cons: "I never expect airline food to be any good but I’m always hoping it’s edible. This was not the case, as the egg breakfast made me physically ill."
Pros: "The onboard crew were lovely."
Cons: "Stood at check in for over 30 mins with no staff in sight. Boarding was a disaster. Staff was not prepared nor organized and the crowds were unbearable. Upgraded seats were laughable and not worth an extra $60. Food was mediocre. Entertainment would have been good but GE touchscreens are so old, they were difficult to work."
Pros: "Nice airline, great crew and service."
Cons: "Leg room and space was great but the seats could use some more cushion."
Pros: "Free everything...food, wine, spirits, movies, etc. Nice crew!"
Cons: "Seats a little hard, main dinner dish was a little odd but okay."
Pros: "in flight experience is above average"
Cons: "The computer system really needs a lot of improvement. We were checking in with our infant daughter and it took 50 minutes to check in with a senior person helping the check in person and phone calls to their technical assistance. We were told an infant is difficult in their system, and our dual national daughter was another layer of complication."
Pros: "The food was AMAZING. No, seriously. Everything we had was great."
Pros: "I liked that the boarding went really fast and the staff at the JFK airport was super nice and helpful."
Cons: "I didn't like how rude the airplane crew was and how useless and unhappy they were. The sits were very uncomfortable and the food didn't have any taste."
Pros: "Food, crew, entertainment great"
Cons: "Seat were very uncomfortable.. hard, not enough leg room and there was no way to sleep comfortably with the head rest that is set up so you can rest your head on it,but its awkward and hard an in the way..."
Pros: "Did not take the flight in the end"
Cons: "My first leg flight was delayed and I booked through kayak on two different airlines and the first airline did not communicate with the second airline so 5 passengers ran to make the change and arrived 1 min after the jetbridge to get on the plane was pulled away. It was incredible frustrating and could have very easily been avoided with communication from the airlines"
Pros: "Everything went very fast and smooth. I didn't have to queue for the boarding. The Sita were very comfortable, the crew very friendly and halepful and the selection of the movies A+."
Pros: "Choice of movies was good, but told the flight over was better. I flew another airline. Had no issue checking one bag in for free, but I think that is standard on an international flight."
Cons: "Entertainment systems take up foot/bag space underneath the seats. Was not able to get more than one glass of wine, even though I missed the first beverage service, that is my fault though, but I don't recall it being an issue getting a drink between services. Entertainment systems had contrast issues and it seemed like a lot of people 8 - 10 had issues since they were using iPads instead of the built in monitors. A lot of wear showing on the entertainment systems remotes."
Pros: "Quantity of food was less for the dinner time..but overall experience was good.."
Pros: "I thought the food was mediocre for business class"
Cons: "My headphones and those of my neighbors did not work."
Pros: "The flight was on time."
Cons: "The floor at our feet had been spilled on during a previous flight and not cleaned. Bag was lost and not returned for 5 days. Crew during flight was flippant and disinterested in service...unless you were Economy+."
Pros: "We were inmiddle seats -not our preference. We were told in Dublin that we had different seats to the ones we ended up in. Food was excellent, crew were very nice. Loved the "make a wish" event on this flight - a definite plus for Virgin."
Pros: "Having a not full flight and room to spread out. The Dreamliner is awesome. On time departure."
Cons: "The wifi did not work at all, and I think I was charged 3 times Landed 30 mins early and then waited an hour for the gate, I get that things happen but we have been on the plane for 11.5 hrs. Figure it out!"
Pros: "The service, the service. My wife got a cheese and fruit platter after dinner. Crew went out of their way to make us feel special and welcomed. Excellent service."
Cons: "Nothing to complain about."
Pros: "They were were very kind and helpful to all passengers"
Pros: "Wifi worked very well"
Cons: "Jave to pay for everything on an overseas flight"
Pros: "Genuinely pleasant cabin crew, good service, good food."
Cons: "Virgin Upper Class seats are cramped, with very limited stowage space. Turning the seat into a lay flat bed (and returning it seat at the end of the flight) takes some effort--not the simplest of processes. I'm not tall, but my feet protruded into the aisle so I was being disturbed whilst sleeping. Seat is also quite narrow--feels quite claustrophobic when sleeping."
Cons: "You lost our luggage. We were able to pick up our luggage after the Sydney flight, but they never made it to Minneapolis. What I don't understand is why we were not able to get boarding passes and seat assignments when we did our check-in in Sydney? Why is that so hard? Also, when we were getting our boarding pass in LAX it was so confusing when it asked for checked bags. Our bags were already on a belt going to who knows where - were we supposed to check "yes"? If we had a boarding pass this would not have been an issue."
Pros: "great food and service!"
Cons: "It got a little cold in the cabin for a few hours."
Pros: "New Dreamliner aircraft was very comfortable with loads of leg room for a tall person like myself at 1.76m"
Cons: "My seat was directly under the aircon and it was blowing very cold all night which made it quite uncomfortable. Fortunately I had an extra blanket which I could wrap over my head."
Pros: "Plenty of leg room Open area for self-serve snacks and non-alcoholic drinks Food was very good Super friendly attendants"
Pros: "The crew was great with updates. Checking in was a bit confusing though as not all the crew knew what was up. It was a very crowded day so it was bound to be a bit rough. Of my last four flights to London Virgin Atlantic was the best!"
Cons: "Heathrow was a bit confusing and it took a moment to get my bearings. The crew was a bit disorganized but that seemed to get solved quickly."
Pros: "reservations easy to make (like most other airlines) A water bottle, blanket, headset & sleep kit on each seat. Seats were not so close together in coach that your knees were against your chin if the guy in front of you put his seat back. The planes I was on To/from LAX-BNE felt very spacious because of the interior height. 2 free checked bags."
Cons: "The food was mediocre--doughy stuff for both meals Not very tasty. The entertainment selection was nowhere near as good as on other airlines. Very Australia-heavy music, old films & TV shows available, as well as some new ones. But no live TV channels, not even current news."
Cons: "My video monitor didn't work so I couldn't watch movies, asked the crew twice to help and they never did. Then to top off a terrible 10 hour flight with no entertainment, my bag never made it. Worst experience ever"
No wifi and tv didnt work so couldnt watch movies
Flight was smooth. Captain was polite and reassure our safe flight. Made it home 15 min early too!
Nothing but have more flight attendants like Tara
Pros: "Professional crew, no fanfare, standard was excellence."
Cons: "Faster flight time in air..."
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: "Calm and safe, just like I like it."
Pros: "The flights were on time. The crews on both flights were friendly."
Cons: "Figuring out how to get boarding passes after seat assignment was not easy or forthcoming because I flew basic economy, especially on my connecting flight. Having instructions on that would be helpful."
Pros: "Crew was excellent, seats are never excellent"
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: "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: "The crewe members were great."
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Being on time. Trapped in plane for 2 hours"
Pros: "Crew okay but they don't circulate much. They just stay in back."
Cons: "Whole entertainment system NOT WORKING."
Pros: "I liked the wide variety of movies and snacks available."
Cons: "The kid behind me wouldn't stop kicking 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."
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: "Very professional crew and in a good mood."
Cons: "The boardimg in Mexico City is always so messy. I think airlines should send back passengers that pretend it is their boarding time when it is not. So many people end up boarding before they should making a mess at the boardimg gate."
Pros: "Staff from Check in to aircraft very pleasant. Snack choice in Coach impressive."
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."
Pros: "Take off on time, arrived early, pleasant flight attendant"
Cons: "Had to sit on tarmac after arriving early"
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."
Cons: "Last seat by bathroom smelled of urine"
Pros: "Service was good. Was upgraded for more space."
Cons: "Intertainment unit was not working correctly. Locked up after movie was over. No offers of any sort from crew about issue."
Pros: "It's a fast flight and boarding was quick."
Cons: "The terminal at LGA airlines is terrible."
Cons: "Wouldn't let us check in til right before so our family was split all over the plane"
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."
Cons: "I slept all the way, so can’t say whether anything went wrong with the flight."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Hard landing"
Pros: "Not applied"
Cons: "Not applied"
Pros: "We got on the plane and it went to where it was supposed to go."
Pros: "Over all everything specially we got in earlier than expected"
Pros: "Crew member Lori was exceptional. Great detail to safety and customer service!"
Pros: "Food good, wine OK"
Cons: "Discomfort bad"
Pros: "I got upgraded to comfort + which was great. quick flight, was even early"
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: "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: "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: "We stood on the ground due to weather, which had nothing to do with the airline itself. Keeping this from jading my point of view, the airline stood within the standard of what is expected of a good trip. Food was good, and the choice of movies, shows, and games helped the time pass. Staff was friendly, and checked bags were ready rather quickly."
Cons: "The number of updates telling us we are going nowhere, was a bit excessive."
Pros: "Comfy seats"
Cons: "No earphones available. I had forgotten mine but crew stated that none had been put on the flight. Lunch was served but no snacks later as is usual on an almost 4 hr flight. I always fly First Class for the extra room and perks of crew service. Crew spent most time in galley chatting. Not a bad flight by any means but I guess I have been spoiled by superior service on all of my other weekly Delta flights."
Cons: "Seats are very small."
Pros: "The flight attendants were very attentive and available."
Cons: "Boarding wasn't very prompt, but went smoothly once it began."
Cons: "lack of carry on luggage space. very tight. gate agents did not care about the customers. I had to stick my bag under the seat and only half would fit so my feet did not fit with my bag. it was a back pack. I do not prefer checking luggage since I've had so many bad experiences."
Pros: "Ticket price in coach was good. Lots of available flights. Legroom was much better than expected. Service very good."
Cons: "Wifi is not free and expensive. Not enough pricing options and costs more if you don't buy a plan before the flight."
3.5 hours delay will ruin any day!
Over 3 hours of delay without any assistance from klm
Pros: "Crew was great, on time flight, clean plane."
Cons: "Entertainments options were shockingly few. Honestly have not been on a plane recently with so few and limited options of TV series and movies. I was extremely surprised. Wish I had know and I would’ve had more options for my family."
Pros: "This Transavia Airlines is not good at all."
Cons: "Many things cheaper does mean better."
Pros: "Boarding was efficient and the crew were nice."
Cons: "the seating is horrible. it was the tightest seating I've ever experienced."
Pros: "The crew is excellent but the seats are not comfortable enough. There should be a way to balance money and comfort,not just placing people in seats they do not fit into"
Cons: "Nothing,just the seats. Cleanliness was perfect"
Cons: "The only complaint I had was that it was very warm on the flight (and I usually get cold on flights), and in the seats we had there weren't fans above the seats. A few rows up they had fans, so apparently you have to pay extra for air... This wouldn't be a big deal on a short domestic flight, but for an international flight it was a long time to be uncomfortable!"
Pros: "Klm's consistantly high standards in everything they do."
Pros: "Impressive service... amazing crew, very friendly and professional"
Pros: "Professional crew. Good simple check in."
Pros: "Pleasant crew. Appropriate and efficiently served snack."
Cons: "Boarding and disembarkation were slow."
Cons: "Delay due to strike"
Pros: "Good amount of space on the plane, lots of movies to watch, good food and drink."
Cons: "The KLM crew are always great serving and treating you. Well above many other airlines."
Pros: "Crew great, boarding at Nice very organised, boarding in Amsterdam not so organised!"
Cons: "A queuing system would be better-it was a bit disorganised at Amsterdam!"
Pros: "Reasonable space in economy class seats"
Cons: "Staff hurrying us up 40 minutes before departing and threatening to take our bags out of the plane in case we didn’t board then. I had to leave my coffee and run."
Pros: "No delay and nice staff"
Pros: "The crew"
Cons: "Seat comfort"
Cons: "We were told they were holding our flight, we ran 3 terminals and they’d already left."
Pros: "Crew was nice and friendly"
Cons: "Airplane so uncomfortable. Food horrible. Not even available for one of us what we ask for on what was offered. Bad taste and not what can be on a that length of time flight."
Pros: "Comfortable seat, friendly crew. Crew were conscious of recycling which I like a lot as there is so much waste on flight. Anything we can do to reduce waste is very welcome."
Cons: "Food wasn't very appetizing, pasta didn't have much flavor and I don't eat red meat so the other choice wasn't an option for me."
Cons: "The check in desk was late opening & the carry on luggage size was smaller than advertised on their website, so it had to be put in the hold. Open on time to prevent less stress to travelers & give more accurate information about cabin luggage."
Cons: "Inflight was better than I expected. But needs upgrading air crafts."
Cons: "None of our 4 checked bags arrived with us. This was despite ample connection time (2+ hours) in Amsterdam."
Pros: "Friendly hostesses"
Cons: "Flight was delayed 3 hours"
Cons: "The flight advertised meals..a small pastry was served an hour into the flight. I asked when the meal would be and was told a few hours...which turned out to be breakfast..i wated all night for food that only came an hour before landing. Now hungrey and tierd.I.will not be flying klm ever again !!"
Pros: "Excellent service. A meal , drink and a coffee included which we were not expecting."
Pros: "Easy flight; loved the crew and their friendly customer service. Great food, kept everyone hydrated and fed."
Cons: "The movie options, as well as music and TV options were limited. There were no electrical outlets."
Pros: "Easy flight; loved the crew and their friendly customer service. Great food, kept everyone hydrated and fed."
Cons: "The movie options, as well as music and TV options were limited. There were no electrical outlets."
Cons: "KLM staff in the Prague airport were some of the rudest humans I have ever met. So incredibly uncaring and outright mean."
Cons: "We did not get two of baggage at the destination."
Cons: "... ear plugs, masks, good food or even picking seats? I remember when it was all complementary and standard on overnight flights. Oh, and the vegetarian breakfast was unfortunately poor as well. I know you can do better, because you used to."
Pros: "He missed it due to having a 32 minute layover, which he ran all the way to board."
Cons: "he had no choice but to look at the closed door of his flight, and wait an additional 7 hours and they didn't even give him a voucher for food. I'm his mother, I'm currently visiting family in Scotland, so couldn't help him much. I'm pretty disgusting and disappointed by the whole experience."
Cons: "The streaming service didn’t work"
Pros: "Absolutely nothing!"
Cons: "the connection flights was the worse! The gate was changed in Amsterdam 3 times! From D82 to C6 and then to C11. The distance between B82 and C was 20-30 minutes walk. No rushing was needed though, the flight was delayed for 1:30h and after we all boarded a further delay was announced. I will never fly with KLM."
Cons: "Boarding was a free for all. The travelers did not pay attention to the priorities."
Pros: "Comfortable seats. Warm plane with happy staff."
Cons: "Maybe a second sandwich option for food, not everyone likes cheese."
Pros: "Just great crew."
Cons: "Not comfortable at all and will not book KLM again."
Pros: "The food and the punctuality"
Cons: "The technology in interteiment is not touch screen"
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: "The flight attendants could not do enough for you."
Cons: "Business class was pretty empty but again I was not allowed to change my seat selection online. Pathetic check-in."
Cons: "The Guy who had an accident when boarding causing a delay. Also I didn’t like the wait fir checking as passengers with children went before business class and should be after."
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."
Cons: "Two hours delay in the start."
Pros: "newer plane, good staff"
Cons: "need better and more food options, more often"
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: "Comfortable flight to Amsterdam for vacation in UK. More meals than expected. Also wasn't expecting some of the comforts offered to "regular" class seats like eye masks, ear plugs, pillows and blankets. It was an overnight flight, so maybe that should have been expected, but I don't think we had those 4 years ago when traveling overseas."
Cons: "Nothing. This is filler text to meet min characters."
Pros: "Crew most helpful."
Cons: "Always like to travel with WestJet."
Pros: "Crew was good"
Cons: "Montreal airport was awful"
Cons: "I was delayed a few houts.they could let me fly earlier."
Pros: "not much, not even close to the service and comfort I am used to flying."
Cons: "Keep planes in working order"
Cons: "Service is awful, they cancelled a flight and they reserved the wrong flight so we couldn't get to the destination. Had to change airline and extend our flight by 9 hours with our baby. Horrrrrrible experience. Staff didn't seem to care. They put everything on their supervisor and she tried to help"
Cons: "After landing, we were waiting on the tarmac for sometime and I needed to use the restroom I was an allowed to do so. It would’ve taken me a short short time. I went to The rear of the plane to use the restroom and was told to get in my seat."
Pros: "The food"
Cons: "The staff insisted on putting bags underneath seats for a 13 hours flight..."
Pros: "Getting home"
Cons: "Leaving Montreal"
Pros: "I slept throughout the flight"
Pros: "I liked the price for my flight however I booked using my AirMiles."
Cons: "I have travel with WestJet many times is the past and had nothing but good to say. This was my first time using WestJet Encore and was totally shocked and disappointed. The flight crew i found to be very rude with and had an attitude. The biggest shock was the greetings and all announcements were in English accept the safety rules where the pre-recorded tape was played. If asked about the return flight from Halifax to Montreal, one word to describe it "disaster". I was totally turned off with WestJet. I will for sure continue using Porter as I was always pleased with there service. As they say "you get what you pay for"."
Pros: "Westjet team is fast, nice and solve issues in one call. I have had very good experiences with westjet! Thank you!"
Cons: "Today in Montreal during boarding the lady coordinating did not give priority to people with children. We were at leastthree families - we were all upset with the situation. However as I have had very good experiences with west jet I consider this an isolated issue."
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "No entertainment and bag charge."
Cons: "No entertainment on the return flights Yeg/Yul !! Makes for a long flight."
Pros: "Always great services"
Cons: "Our flight took a 2 hours delay because of fueling error."
Cons: "They tried for force us to pay for a different ticket because we had gotten a cheap initial ticket!"
Pros: "The service of the crew was fantastic."
Cons: "No food included just water and Coke."
Pros: "Very smooth flight!"
Cons: "None. All is great!"
Pros: "I love flying in a smaller plane. They are usually not full in the morning and so it gave me a lot of space to relax and enjoy the flight from montreal to toronto. The crew was really nice and smilling and they made sure that my pet and I had everything we needed."
Cons: "The seats are pretty thin and uncomfortable. There is no wifi or television on board."
Cons: "avoid the westjet encore flights. planes are small and noisy. if you sit next to a window it’s impossible to comfortably put both feet on the ground. if you pay for plus seating on an encore flight you’re basically paying to get on and off first. there’s no extra room and would be more fairly priced at $10."
Pros: "The flight comes into Vancouver at a very good time."
Pros: "The flight attendants were very nice. Especially « Big John », he was very funny."
Cons: "We were delayed 45 minutes without reason, we asked to have our flights switched as we were nervous of missing our connecting flight and were told we could not switch. While we were waiting on the runway for over an hour I asked our flight attendant to check on the status of our connecting flight and she basically told us to hope for the best and that we would have to deal with it when we arrived in Toronto"
Pros: "The seats were vinyl, not fabric - I prefer vinyl. It feels 'cleaner'."
Cons: "1.I did not like the flight crew announcing how great they (the crew) were at the start of announcements before take-off ---- If you are great, don't tell us, act like it - I found both crew members hardly engaging, one was sullen. 2. PA system was a little hard to understand anyway. Crew member should have put volume up and made sure was loud enough , but just seemed like wanted to use a 'cute' half french/half english accent to speak in. 3. Also this flight 3535 on Dec 21 Mtl- Toronto made me nervous although I fly often. Most nervous I have been because pilot took time to gain altitude after take off, and when landing had to accelerate then decelerate a number of times. Landing was (with 2 km/hr winds i.e. not much wind) almost on one wheel. 4. Food does not have to be so cheap e.g. sweet snack bar? Please bring back an assortment of nuts as they are at least nutritious. Thank you for reading."
Pros: "Staff was great"
Cons: "The 4hour delay on the one hour flight"
Pros: "Fantastic flight!"
Cons: "Being stopped at every connection for screening. No communication about why. Nearly missing the connection due to the screenings. Being held in holding because it was being confirmed that my bag would make it on my next flight and then once confirmed it never made it anyways!!! Unprofessional and poorly executed all the way through."
Pros: "Good service and on time"
Pros: "The crew."
Cons: "Everything else. Flight was delayed by over an hour, seats are slippery and SO uncomfortable. No food, no entertainment (flight was only an hour)."
Cons: "Snack was very minimal with no selection or option to purchase more."
Pros: "It was a comfortable experience, the flight crew were attentive and friendly."
Cons: "The lack of space beneath the seat in front of me can be frustrating, especially when one is required to push their small bag underneath it."
Pros: "Quick boarding and quick to disembark."
Cons: "tiny! you get what you pay for with a turbo prop."
Cons: "You should hire agents who don't lie to passengers. That's not a good reputation 4 the company. Have an office for the baggages where passengers can address their issues."
Pros: "The flight was on time"
Pros: "- Flight was on time - Friendly crew"
Cons: "- My flight was from Montreal to Seattle with a connection in Calgary but the agent at the check in in Montreal was unable to confirm whether my luggage would be transferred directly to Seattle or if I had to collect it in Calgary and check in again. The crew should know or be able to verify the information in their database or somewhere at the departure not only when I arrive in Calgary! It adds a stress to the customer not knowing. - Flight of 4.30 hours and no free meals. - Impossible to use my hear phones in the plane so I couldn't hear the TV channels. I was also expecting movies and series like in Delta."
Pros: "Flight was on time."
Cons: "Seating was very cramped, uncomfortable."
Pros: "The airplane being pretty small, boarding and getting off was fast. No issues or delays either."
Cons: "The flight was delayed by 2 hours. So we reached almost at midnight to Vancouver."
Pros: "I liked that the pre-ordered food was given at the beginning of the flight."
Pros: "Crew was great. Flight was on time."
Cons: "This older plane had tiny seats in the seat backs. My phone screen was bigger. Thought we might get a meal on a flight of this length and at this time of day."
Pros: "Nice and professional service."
Cons: "Having to pay for my checked-in bag."
Pros: "Customer focus and service"
Pros: "Free wine and beer."
Cons: "Our flight for Toronto on Sept. 5 , # WS589 was delayed of about 1 and half hour; so, me and about 20 other passengers missed our connection in Toronto. The crew said that Pearson airport was on a shut down due to severe thunderstorms. But the weather was nice and sunny when we arrived Toronto; in fact my connecting flight ( Hainan airlines HU 7995 had left 20 min. earlier- on time- for Bejing. The crew in Westjet plane told me that all airlines were delayed in Toronto airport due to bad weather , and so that I would not miss my connecting flight."
Pros: "Great service, on time, comfortable seats."
Cons: "Could improve the snacks quality."
Pros: "Montreal to Toronto the crew and staff was great and in a good mood and very pleasant"
Cons: "Connecting flight was cancelled."
Pros: "Didn't like anything. Specially the fact that I left home at 3am and I'm still not in LA"
Cons: "THE DELAYS! 36 HOURS ON THE ROAD AND STILL GOING! NEVER AGAIN!!!!"
Pros: "all the service was very good to us"
Pros: "The fact that air Canada had a flight around the same time"
Cons: "Kept delaying with no clear idea of when we'd actually take off"
Pros: "In-flight service. Complimentary wine & beer. Flight attendants very friendly."
Pros: "flight was fine."
Cons: "very disappointed Iceland Air is charging $95 for 1 piece of luggage. This is making me rethink the "deal" because it added $190 to the cost of the flight."
Cons: "iceland air was disappointing. i paid for extra leg room in the front of the plane and as i was boarding i got a new seat assignment: last row. very much not cool at all. i likely will not fly this airline again."
Cons: "The entertainment system didn’t work. No food and no alcoholic beverages on an international flight, very disappointing."
Cons: "Boarding took forever, worst seat ever, not many options for food on the flight, flight was delayed, it took almost 2 hours to receive our luggage. Mine got lost, and I have yet to hear from them as to where it is. If I have learned one thing from flying Icelandair is that I better be patient..."
Cons: "No luggage arrived, and very long and tedious process to file missing luggage claim. And they NEVER called me with a claim number or when they located the luggage. I had to keep calling them requesting the information and it took 3 days to get the luggage."
Pros: "The crew was very friendly, but that’s about all the was good."
Cons: "Everything besides the crew. Overall comfort was lackluster, price was to expensive, baggage policy was abysmal."
Pros: "It worked, the price was fine."
Cons: "The lavatory smelled of urine, which made the flight on the last back row seats quite uncomfortable. Never experienced anything like this before."
Cons: "Almost 4 hours delay"
Pros: "Good price point. Excellent crew. Entertainment with free movies and very nice travel info-logues on Iceland. Nice flight."
Cons: "Reykjavik airport had bus to outside stairs boarding, but that's not the airline's fault."
Cons: "Same old movies Back row Seats didn’t go back"
Cons: "Seats in exit row, understand the armrests need to be secure in case of emergency but they are TIGHT. I have hips i'm sorry I don't see how anyone could sit in those that aren't a size 2, i'm not obese but i'm not a twig ( I understand this is a plane manufacture problem not an Icelandair company problem but still) leg room was nice but still"
Pros: "You’re going for no frills. Competitive pricing maybe but consider baggage situation first. We went transatlantic and paid for a bag using economy light fare to make it work. Only needed one checked bag. Kids even in economy light get a free meal. Cabin is ok."
Cons: "Witnessed many customers checking in who thought a bag was included. Entertainment is ok but screens have limited kid activities. Each leg of my flight took off 15-20 min late easily. Overall this wasn’t bad as it was made up in-air. Except one layover was only an hour, And cut it a bit close clearing passport control and traveling with two kids. No time to even see Kaflavik or pick up food or drinks. We ran to the final boarding call after clearing passport control. Also not good was that they don’t offer gate check on strollers. On a departure, you can use your stroller all the way up to the gate, but you get it back with any checked baggage at baggage claim, so you won’t have a stroller for layovers in Keflavík or clearing customs on either end. That was a pain."
Pros: "Great crew, comfortable seats although was unable to choose seats prior to check in."
Cons: "Got charged for bags when we had booked regular economy class, NOT economy “light”. Was told the baggage policy changed since we booked - TOTAL BS! Also, c’mon, give us ONE free beer on a 7 hour flight."
Pros: "It was a short flight"
Cons: "The seats were old and worn. Smelly."
Cons: "Never offered any food even on an overnight international flight"
Pros: "We arrived safely"
Cons: "Plan to pay extra for limited food service,baggage, and transportation to and from the city. I spent an extra 176 Euro for two non oversized bags, Not a lot of options for gluten-free choices."
Pros: "The planes are really comfortable and I like the Aurora lights in the deck heads. Good movies. Nice free water."
Cons: "The queue for bag drop was massive! There were so many people around that it was hard to get in the right queue and not much direction. I spent over 90 mins waiting to drop my bag and then had to sprint through the airport to get my flight. Thankfully the rest of the airport is very efficient."
Pros: "The seats reclined, movie selection was good, unfortunately the food and beverages costs extra."
Cons: "The plane was full so it was difficult to get our seats changed. Unfortunately there was a couple that was late which delayed our plane. But the crew was informative and we arrived close to the original time."
Pros: "Reasonable price"
Cons: "I was charged $250 to change my wife's flight even though the change was required due to my unexpected military orders!"
Cons: "Surprised by very large bag fees, reservation was unclear about baggage allowance and charges."
Cons: "We were more than a hour delayed leaving Reykjavik without apology or explanation. Much of that time was spent on a bus on the runway with the doors open to snow outside."
Cons: "It was the most uncomfortable flight I’ve ever had"
Pros: "The price was fantastic for a round trip flight from the US to Europe."
Cons: "As is with all airlines, boarding and deplanting was awful. The airport in Iceland left a bit to be desired, but I don't know that you can really fault the airline for that."
Pros: "Flight good, plane clean and comfy, service good, bags checked through to final destination in spite of stopover in Iceland."
Cons: "I inquired about baggage prior to our flying get. I was told that we would not be able to check bags through to final destination due to there being a stopover. When it turned out the bags were checked through, we were unprepared for the overnight without our luggage. Could have been greT had I been given the correct information."
Pros: "Sage lounge at the airport was great."
Cons: "As a business class traveler I would expected better treatment than hauling us on board a bus with everyone else."
Cons: "Upon arriving in Iceland 3 hours late, when asked what we needed to do about our connecting flights and were told to check with the airline's service desk. They didn't bother letting those of us continuing on to Glasgow know we needn't disembark since the plane we were on was the aircraft for that flight. Every passenger disembarked and then had to be paged. That connecting flight was to have left over 3 hours before and yet no one could tell us why the schedule had the connecting flight still listed as "Final Call." We were paged and then told we had to run to catch the plane. We literally sprinted through the terminal. The attendant who scanned our boarding passes was just this side of rude. And everyone on the airplane was mad at us. The flight attendants wouldn't even answer our call button when we needed to ask a question about the UK Landing Form. The flight was already delayed. Had the airlines made any effort to be helpful or attend to their customers needs, they would have announced we needn't leave the aircraft. Worse flight I've been on. I wish I hadn't already paid for or I'd not take the return flights home."
Cons: "Flight attendants did not offer food at any price. Food or drink (except water) is not provided on a 7 hour flight. Conflicting information on 2nd bag. Some said free on international flights. Had to pay $95 for 2nd bag at airport. Legalized theft."
Pros: "Delayed over 6 hrs ... happened last time as well .....no food vouchers....not even complimentary food and drink on the flight when we finally got on board. I could go on, but, will deal with Icelandair themselves. It's probably the last time I'll book them, they used to be so good, I'm so disappointed."
Cons: "ZERO STARS 4 hour delay with no explanation. Kiosk said to notify if more than two hour delay for compensation. I notified them and they gave me a haste about a meal voucher. I spoke with a fellow delayed traveler and suggested he get a voucher too. He came back empty handed. I asked what happened, he said, "they have not compensated anyone." I then inquired with the service agent asking, "how did I get one then?" I gave them my confirmation number and the agent said, "they have no record of a voucher being given out." I said to her, "you didn't even type the number in!!! She lied directly to my face! I said, "you give out 22000 Krona and keep no records?" I said I had I already received one and this gentleman deserves to eat as well. After they spoke back and forth, again, they reluctantly gave him one too. 3 minutes later, there was an announcement that meal vouchers were available for all passengers of flight FI430. I subsequently contacted customer service by email about this and have yet to hear back, I doubt I will. DO NOT LIE TO ME OR 150+ OTHER PEOPLE. Unacceptable and unprofessional to say the least."
Pros: "Clean aircraft. Friendly staff."
Cons: "short connection in Iceland are nice, but can be stressful... I got off the plane, into the terminal and it already said last call for the flight I was. Running through terminal... arriving at gate, and there we waited for other passengers another 20 minutes or so. It is comforting that they wait, but the running and worrying was not that nice."
Pros: "The crew was nice. The lost baggage team members at Glasgow airport were INCREDIBLY helpful, kind, and comforting. I cannot overstate how grateful I am for their help."
Cons: "My baggage was lost and while eventually returned, this was not for three days. The boarding process at REF was very disorganized and delayed. Again we were told that we would have seats together and again did not."
Pros: "Short transit. Although the first leg of my flight was delayed by more than 1h 30 minutes, they arranged for quick transfers at Reykjavik airport and we arrived almost on time at final destination."
Cons: "No free food is served on board so make sure to bring your own food or be prepared to buy your meal on board (they don't accept cash, only bank/credit cards)."
Pros: "Getting off"
Cons: "Boarding from both ends of plane with random passengers. Unanswered call buttons. Twenty minute delays before opening door in Glasgow."
Cons: "The boarding process was chaotic it started late and then by allowing everyone to board at once it created a rush to the desk. People were not held to the one personal item and one carry on rule causing there to be a lack of space in the overhead compartments. The aircraft was out of date, the entertainment screens and charging ports in my whole row were broken."
Pros: "Again I didn'r order food so can`t rate for me but they gave grandson complimentary food which was great. Glasgow airport staff fantastic - a lady staff member noticed my daughter and I were loaded down with luggage (daughter had her and toddler son's things in two big stow cases and some carry-ons since moving there for at least 1 year) and had a stroller and busy toddler to get from baggage claim to taxi area. She was an angel and got a luggage trolley, loaded it and even took the trolley to the taxi area while daughter and I took stroller, toddler and a couple carry ons."
Cons: "As above about lack of seating area at the gate."
Pros: "The crew is always excellent"
Cons: "That you do not serve food"
Pros: "I am very happy that the entertainment was free."
Cons: "There was no structure to boarding, people just got on whenever because we were bused to the airplane. This made getting to seats difficult for everyone and delayed takeoff even more than it was already."
Pros: "Food vouchers for late flights"
Cons: "Missed some touring because of flight delays."
Pros: "Great food and comfortable seats."
Pros: "Was exhausted and slept through the flight, so unable to speak to in-flight service."
Cons: "The flight was delayed over four hours with no communication. Upon arrival the flight that was due to leave in 45 minutes (if on schedule), wasn't even shown on the board, causing panic and confusion. When we did learn that the flight was delayed and it showed up on the departure board, we settled in for a long wait. As what should have been boarding time arrived, no announcements were made, and we ended up queuing for almost an hour before the flight finally departed 30 minutes later than the delayed time. Biggest gripe? No announcements were made acknowledging the delay, providing realistic expectations, or giving us updates regarding new departure times."
Pros: "There were movies available."
Cons: "The only thing offered was one drink and this was an international flight. The flight was delayed which resulted in us arriving only fifteen minutes before boarding our next flight which was also delayed. You had to pay for internet unless in their premier club."
Pros: "They offered a good selection of free entertainment on the plane."
Cons: "There is no leg room on the plane. They have big boxes underneath the seat that take up all the room. There is no free snakes or food on the 8 hour flight. They lost both of our checked bags and our knee scooter."
Pros: "The flight itself was fine. Nothing special, though in flight entertainment was great"
Cons: "Flight was delayed by 3 hours. Everyone from MSP to GLA had their luggage lost by the airline. Then had to dial international toll numbers (like 900 numbers in the US) to get status updates and claim number. Since we did not have an international phone we ended up running up charges on our friends phone. Took two days but did get luggage delivered."
Cons: "My flight from ORD to Reykjavik was delayed and so I missed my connection to Glasgow. I was rerouted to Amsterdam and got to Glasgow 7 hours after my original flight. Needless to say my luggage did not make it to Glasgow. I arrived in Glasgow on June 14th and did not receive my luggage until the evening of June 17th only because I went to the airport to pick it up myself instead of waiting for it to be delivered on the 18th. Four days of my 12 days of vacation were spent on the phone tracking down my luggage and worrying about whether I'd ever see it again."
Pros: "Convenience store"
Cons: "Crowded terminal. Lines for no apparent reason. Deplaning and boarding outside in cold, drizzly weather. Disinterested crew. Landing felt like we were shot down in Glasgow."
Cons: "Flight delayed No seating in Iceland"
Pros: "Again the fact that the first two pieces of checked luggage are free is good, unless..."
Cons: "...of course, they lose your checked luggage. :) The DID find it the same day and promised to deliver it the following day, but it's a good thing I packed an extra day's worth of clothes in my carry-on. Combine that with the fact that we sat in the plane on the tarmac for an extra 20 minutes waiting to takeoff because they were waiting for another flight to arrive so they could transfer bags from that flight toour plane!"
