Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews

Pros: "Food was good and plentiful."
Cons: "There was no way for us to reserve seats with extra leg room 48 hours before the flight. Had to sit in agony for a 9 hour flight because of height"
Pros: "The AC was working well during the flight. Food was so much better than United and crew was very nice and helpful."
Cons: "The seats in economy class are horrible, I had to get up every hour for a short stretch. The entertainment system remote control was very sticky, quite disgusting. Good think I carried some disinfecting wipes."
Pros: "Very friendly and cooperative crew. Entertainment is well upated with latest media."
Pros: "Crew was great. Comfortable seats. Grateful they held the plane when we had a late arrival in Zurich"

Cons: "On time"
Pros: "Crew was very courteous and helpful"
Cons: "More leg room"
Pros: "Food was good. Crew was kind and gracious."
Cons: "Seats were extremely cramped. Once the person in the front reclined their seat it was very difficult to get out of the seat. Also better guidance is needed during boarding. Finally, my hand carry was checked 4 times by 4 different people, which means your staff doesn’t trust their own colleagues."
Cons: "A little more clean seats"
Pros: "On time! Courteous. Free meal! Even on flight less than 2 hours!"
Cons: "All good!"

Cons: "I travel a least 5 times a year and Kayak is always my option."

Cons: "No leg room due to the airplane box under the seat in front of me. Very difficult to straighten legs out, difficult to get comfortable."

Pros: "All very comfortable"
Cons: "It was delayed"
Pros: "The breakfast quiche was a pleasant surprise. Crew was very welcoming and professional."
Cons: "I was surprised to be charged for 1 piece of checked baggage. I was never informed I would be required to pay for 1 piece of checked baggage. I would have paid ahead of time, had I known. I tried to check-in online but was denied access to my ticket because Swiss Air thought I might be a robot. I kept following instructions for positive access but after about 10 attempts I quit. Very irritating!"
Pros: "Food and crew were great."
Cons: "Economy is tight."
Pros: "The food was the best I’ve ever had in a plane"
Cons: "Sound quality for the films was awful"
Pros: "Short flight and they handed out chocolate"

Pros: "Professional service"
Cons: "Lounge in Dublin poor"
Pros: "It was a fast flight. Less people on the plain."
Cons: "I did not like that I was in a Swiss airport for more then 13 hrs and the company did not offer me a hotel for the night. Two I did not like that at the airport in zerik they don't take coins."
Pros: "good entertainment system, modern aircraft , friendly and competent crew"
Pros: "The crew was both fun and efficient. The food was definitely a step ahead of American owned airline companies. Very good choices of movies and entertainment."
Cons: "We've got no complaints."
Pros: "The way of treatment"
Cons: "The landing was terrible"
Pros: "Good food, ice cream and free alcohol"
Pros: "The crew is rude"
Cons: "40 min delay"
Cons: "Only one agent to check in economy passengers two agents for first class and 2 or 3 for special needs. There were many more economy passengers and it took a lot longer to be serviced more agents for economy would have been more equitable"
Pros: "It was quick and the crew was really nice!"
Cons: "No organization for boarding. It didn't matter what class you are in, everyone boards at the same time. business class o. The plane we were on was just the front seats....they were not larger seats."
Cons: "Too narrow seats."
Cons: "The guy in front of me at the flight from Zurich to Newark..."
Pros: "The veggie food option was delicious. The calzone for breakfast was miserable. The restrooms were kept clean and well-stocked. Flight delay to wait for incoming passengers resulted in others missing their connections in SF."
Pros: "zurich a great airport."
Cons: "cheese roll"
Cons: "Better seats"
Pros: "the entertainment system was perfect, there were lots of movies and shows to entertain you, including newly release films. there were games and music also availble. the seating was comfortable we had blankets and pillows. The beverage service great and the food was good to. although there could have been better options in terms of the dessert ( ice cream taht was provided)"
Cons: "the boarding was poor, we waited in line to board and they did not announce to us that we need to have our ticket stamped before we got to the door, as a result we were sent out of line once the ticket was stamped we had to rejoin the line from the back. When i got through they then said something was wrong with my ticket in which they took it and I was pulled out of the line. they should try to the ticket check and the boarding line at the same time"
Cons: "I did not get a check in reminder email which I thought was strange. I tried checking in and received an error message. I contacted customer service by email and was told I was all checked in. Assuming no issues I went to airport to find out it was canceled. I did not receive an explanation. I waited in line for two hours before speaking to a representative. Was made to feel like it was my fault I hadn't worked things out while waiting in line-"didn't you receive an email!?" I was told no other options except to leave the next day. I pulled up many other flights out of Venice that would get me home in time and was told that there simply were no other options. The real explanation was that Swiss didn't want to pay out to get me home in time. I had to pay more money to get back into the city rather than sit in airport for 12 hours."
Pros: "The steward was friendly"
Cons: "1) Assigned seat but was allowed to change seat 24 hours before online check in but at baggage drop off at airport, I was shocked that Swiss Air did not abide to our selected seats changed and gave us the initial seat assigned. 2) At airport check in, none of the ground crew able to gave us good explanation or assistance. 3) Enterainment has to reboot twice. Audio selection cannot be play. No USB port for charging phone."
Pros: "The crew was attentive and great!"
Cons: "We have been without luggage for 1.5 days. We are being kept in the dark and not getting any help from Swiss Air."
Pros: "Excellent inflight experience with the entertainment; snacks were plenty, crew was very efficient."
Cons: "Notithing to dislike comes to mind."
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: "Crew was excellent, and the food was both ample and appetizing."
Cons: "The boarding process is a little chaotic for the economy cabin since there is no distinctions by zone or seat row. The result is a bit of a surge when they first announce the boarding of the cabin."
Pros: "Flight attendants were friendly, and also very skilled so that their service was unobtrusive, graceful, and helpful. They took great care to get people what they wanted, and I saw them fulfill a few special requests from the people around me politely and quickly. The entertainment selections were good. The variety of interesting musical selections allowed me to go the whole flight without running down the battery on any of my own musical devices. The seat space was comfortable, especially compared to domestic flights I've taken for the last 10 years. The enforcement of carry-on luggage rules meant the overhead compartments were sufficient for what was brought aboard and people weren't filling the foot-space with bags."
Pros: "Decent comfort in the plane. Friendly staff."
Cons: "My flight was delayed. This was the third time in the last 4 times I traveled this route"
Cons: "Boarding was slow but they had increased number of wheelchair clients. Not their fault but was a known so the process could have been started earlier."
Pros: "Service was good. Flight attendants were friendly"
Cons: "The departure area at terminal 1 YYZ was crowded and not the most comfortable experience"
Pros: "The airplane crew were very reassuring"
Cons: "Gate was changed 3 times and flight was delayed 2 times too!"
Pros: "Comfortable seats"
Cons: "Meals and entertainment"
Cons: "Not much legroom and no tv’s on a 10-hour flight"
Pros: "The airline and the flight were pretty good"
Cons: "DONT SHOW BAGAGE INCLUDED ON A BOOKING WHEN ITS ONLY INCLUDED FOR 1 WAY! I HAD TO SHELL OUT 40 EURO TO CHECK MY BAG BECAUSE OF THIS!"
Pros: "Nice touches like pillow and blanket, lots of movies and hot meals."
Cons: "My seat was very uncomfortable for such a long flight! It didn't recline and was cramped. Also I have terrible nut allergy and when I tried to communicate that to the flight staff the kept telling me to tell someone else."
Cons: "Be on time"
Pros: "I liked that we got served a lot of snacks and food :)"
Cons: "Nothing honestly! Smooth flight :)"
Cons: "food screens"
Cons: "Lufthansa lost our bags at Heathrow for over 2 hours. I waited with my toddler for two hours in a terminal with no food options and our transport waiting. While on the flight, there were no food options appropriate for a toddler and no gluten free options for myself."
Pros: "Flight was on time, food good. Even the movie selection was great, but ... (see what I didn't like)"
Cons: "Entertainment (sound) in seat 14K didn't work, despite 1 reboot. Please fix."
Pros: "The change in seat to middle seat, different row for my wife and I was enough for me to think again about a ticket with you"
Pros: "I especially like the comfortable seats with plenty of legroom. The flight was on time - perfect!"
Pros: "Everything that happened during the flight was fine. The service, the flight itself, and the landing – which was excellent."
Cons: "On the ground, neither the staff nor the signage made it clear exactly where to check in. I was sent to the Lufthansa counter, which didn’t open until 11:30, when I should have gone to the United counter. An hour of my time was wasted, which almost resulted in my missing the one-hour before take-off check-in deadline. The only reason I didn’t miss the deadline was because the flight was late taking off."
Pros: "Air Canada is a great airline too"
Pros: "The staff were all super helpful and friendly! Pleasure to fly with!"
Cons: "4/4 flights with involuntary stop-overs were delayed, causing 4 panics and 2 missed flights. Given their proclivity for busing passengers to distant planes in Herman efforts, a 50-minute allowance for changing planes, when added to the frequent Kate departures, is just not sufficient. They should acknowledge it and sell only flights that allow for 80-90 minutes in the airports that are so woefully managed (eg, Frankfurt and Munich). It’s back to BA for me!"
Pros: "The flight attendants all were very helpful and seemed to enjoy their jobs"
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "Plane loaded late then waited on the tarmac, arrived an hour later than scheduled time. This has happened to me on every one of the ten Lufthansa flights I have been on. Apparently they don't know what it is to be on-time."
Pros: "They held the gate for us as we got there about 14 minutes before departure."
Pros: "Huge, new plane, lots of helpful crew, personal entertainment screen, chairs laid back more than typical"
Cons: "Window arm rest didn't move up, boarding was crazy because YYZ airport doesn't have the format to hold lots of people, how to board was a bit confusing, and turbulance."
Pros: "Our stewardess from Toronto to Germany was the best that I have ever had."
Cons: "Great trip."
Cons: "Smelly plane,uncomfortable chairs, AC didn't work properly (hence the smell).No screens, spotty Internet."
Pros: "Clean, friendly environment, friendly staff, even though a bit bossy, but that's the German way (which I am too)."
Cons: "Little space. and NO WIFI. This is really no longer adequate in 2017. In the US, practically all domestic flights have wifi now."
Pros: "Professionali customer service. Food and beverage service very good and generous. Love the European hospitality."
Pros: "My trip was from IAH to FRA by Lufthansa flight"
Pros: "We got there"
Cons: "Had to get a replacement plane when the first one had issues."
Pros: "Good entertainment options, large bathroom area on a lower level"
Cons: "Food options and space"
Cons: "2 hours late"
Pros: "the magazine selection prior to flight, bottle of water in front of each seat and crew were great, the pilot's landing was amazing! The seat in front of me had weird legs that made the room under the seat smaller than other seats around me. So you couldn't fit in the carryon fully under it as you could under the seat diagonally from me, however, this ended up being a huge plus since I could use the legs of this chair in front of me as stepping places to place my feet during flight. Since airline does not provide foot rest, it was great to have this to elevate the feet for a long flight. More considerations should be give to provide footrest or at least these kind of foot elevations."
Cons: "The dinner and breakfast were a bit disappointing, but not bad and not a deal breaker at all since the rest of the flight was wonderful. I noted comfort as ok, but that's applies to all airlines - the seats in economy and no footrest is very uncomfortable, but that's on all economy flights, so no deduction of points there. I do want to note that I needed a boarding pass at the gate and stood in line for quite a while (I was first in line) before I was even acknowledged by a lady who ended up helping me eventually. But she was so cranky! (there were 2 ladies - one busy helping the crew and putting around barrier - she was fine, the other with a head covering (putting this hear just to distinguish the ladies as one was doing a great job)- not sure what she was doing, but she plainly ignored me standing at the desk in front of her, I didn't say anything, just patiently waited until she acknowledged me, and then she printed the boarding pass for me, but she was way to cranky to be in the job that she is in - no need for that kind of attitude."
Pros: "Food, very well organized crew"
Cons: "No leg room, long flight"
Pros: "The crew came round with bottled water multiple times during the trip and even after taking off 15 min late, we still landed 30 mins early and the luggage came out quickly."
Cons: "The meal before landing consisted of nothing but the worst ham sandwich I've ever had the mis-fortune to be served: reminiscent of Bulgarian Airlines in the 80's."
Cons: "Flight was delayed 4 hours and resulted in missing FRA - DEL flight. No help at Air Canada with rebooking missed flight."
Cons: "Flight was canceled. They packed us on another one 3 hours later. Crying babies, bad food and uncomfortable, squishy seats made the flight unpleasant."
Cons: "Flight had no movies/in-flight service. Departed an hour late."
Cons: "Entertainment didn't work"
Pros: "I was seated in an exit row and there were pillows and blankets made available to every passenger."
Cons: "The scheduling of the in flight events made no sense. The cabin was dimmed for take off (logical, given that it was a red-eye). However, once we were at altitude, the lights were put back on to serve dinner. Several people were woken up by this and it took like 1.5 hrs because its a big plane. Also, it was like 9-10pm local time by this point so dinner made no sense! Then the lights were dimmed and people tried to sleep. The lights were turned on 1.5 hrs prior to landing to serve a light breakfast. So, 6.5 hr red-eye turned into about 3.5 hrs of actual sleeping time. I would've preferred to be left alone and given a bigger breakfast."
Pros: "The breakfast, one piece of poundcake, that was the only highlight, and one decent size bathroom."
Cons: "Boarding was unorganized, nobody knew what was going on, but the biggest disappointment is there were no movies there are no video screens on the entire plane so unless you bring your own device and have pre-downloaded Air Canada app there are no entertainment options at all! Who ever heard of a transatlantic flight that didn't have a movie? Make sure you download the app so you can at least watch the movies on your tiny screen."
Pros: "The service and quiet ride"
Cons: "The headphones did not work"
Pros: "Arriving early Decent food"
Cons: "Taking off late"
Pros: "Like the idea of getting on & having access to decent films from when you get of to when you get off. Cheaper than other flights - by approx. $ 300 - short booking due to funeral."
Cons: "Plane delayed 2hrs, then changed gate & delay reduced to 1hr. Bit of a rough landing. Auto darkening windows - nice idea unless you have the window seat and the sun still coming in when flying above the clouds"
Pros: "I was alarmed to see so few people on the flight but it made it nice to be able to stretch out with my economy ticket. Price of the ticket made it possible for me to join my son for a few days in London on the spur of the moment. Plane was clean in good repair and crew friendly."
Cons: "Food was not acceptable, while I never eat much on flights this selection was the least appealing I have ever experienced. Raspberry sherbet was great. More foods which can be easily stored and served-Roma noodles I've had on Asian flights are great alternatives to "meals". I know it's hard to please everyone but eating on flights is more to help time pass and not arrive starving. Go with great self contained "snacks". Forget the "meals"."
Pros: "Staff were super nice. It was a code-share with Air Canada so it turns out to actually be Air Canada."
Cons: "Food was dreadful. The code-sharing is not good because I can't check in online 24 hours before, so I can't select my seats until I get to the airport. I also can't select my food with a code share and that matters to me because I'm vegetarian so it won't be something i do ever again."
Cons: "The seats in economy have been shortened too much. It was painful to the backs of my legs on a long flight."
Pros: "Good crew members with big smiles on their faces."
Cons: "Boarding was just horrible. No order or control over the boarding process; total chaos"
Pros: "the crew did the best they could"
Cons: "the seats on the plane were so cramped....and I am not a fat or tall person; 5'7" and 130 lbs..... for a 7 hour flight.... I'll avoid booking on this plane..... it was a United Airlines plane btw.....not Lufthansa."
Pros: "The crew was very nice and the brand new airplane was pretty awesome too."
Cons: "The whole boarding situation was horrible. Calling it out and have everyone stand in line,not by zone's,EVERYONE... Just to tell us all that they are not ready yet. Take off had a 45 minute delay which resulted in us barely making our connection,having to literally run through the whole airport with our kids. But our luggage didn't make it to Montreal so we have to go back today and pick it up."
Pros: "aircraft was new, clean, and with many new amenities that are appreciated - device charging, Internet access. The crew was great."
Cons: "The seats are tough after a few hours of siting. Children screamed throughout the flight. To the crews credit, they recognized the issue, and suggested a move to empty seats. However,there was a screaming and coughing child behind these seats also. Perhaps grouping families to a section would help?"
Pros: "The usual efficient, friendly WestJet crew. Nice to fly in one of the new Dreamliner. Super smooth landing."
Pros: "Crew and staff at gate fantastic. Accommodated me sitting with partner on both legs (booked flights separately)."
Cons: "Flight was delayed. Always tough late at night."
Cons: "Minor point. They boarded the plane very early. We got to the gate 1/2 hour before departure, and were almost the last ones to board."
Pros: "Amazing crew. Very thankful my flight went smooth as I flew with my puppy."
Pros: "Our stewardess was amazing. Took very good care of us. My son was sick and made sure a wheelchair was available for him total take us to transportation. Made our trip. Thank you!!"
Cons: "All was good"
Cons: "More room"
Cons: "No entertainment service."
Pros: "Nice new 737 max aircraft"
Pros: "Crew were great, service was spot on."
Cons: "Plane was old, seat didn't recline, no tv screens in front of seats, temperature was freezing (but in fairness I was at the emergency exit) and worst of all NO MEAL?? ON A NINE HOUR FLIGHT? Arrived very hungry."
Pros: "Boarding went well. Although it was a full flight, they asked for volunteers to check in hand luggage (free of charge) I did, trying to help. But once I picked up my luggage and got to destination point, I noticed that 2 small items (gifts for family) had been pilfered. Not happy and will not volunteer to help again."
Cons: "No food on plane, no entertainment,( unless you download the app) Above pilfered items"
Pros: "Need more leg room"
Pros: "Westjet service is always the best. Flight was smooth and seemed very short. Again the crew makes it the best!"
Cons: "We were late cause of a thunderstorm but that is nobody's fault."
Pros: "The flight was on time."
Cons: "Tiny chairs"
Pros: "Friendly and helpful staff. Boarded and got off quickly. Clean airplane."
Cons: "I felt cramped in my emergency exit seat, especially having a larger size person sit next to me. My seat was not comfortable. Being tall provides no advantages on westjet. Had to look down at my phone the whole time for entertainment, neck hurt. Wont fly again"
Pros: "The low cost"
Cons: "That which comes with low cost, you get what you pay for"
Pros: "Embarkation staff were helpful"
Cons: "No better than AC Rouge which I deplore"
Pros: "Loved WestJet! They are the best airline, always super friendly"
Pros: "I would like to see more spacious and comfortable seating. They rest is inconsequential. Besides that, no complaints. Thank you."
Cons: "We did not like feeling cramped. This part of the world is breeding much bigger humans than before. Please make allowance for that. I had a tough time breathing...2 big guys side by side is a sorry sight in that limited space."
Pros: "Hi. I actually am glad that the company is following up because I was having a hard time finding an email to contact. I actually came to kayak to book my ticket for Friday to go to London however when I got to the airport it says it was for Monday. Because I had to be at London the next day for a wedding i had to buy another ticket for almost 1000. I also couldn’t contact u so I’m emailing now. I didn’t get on the plane for west jet because I am already in London. I also have a screen shot that shows me that my flight details were for Friday however another email shows me that it’s for Monday. Even the workers at th airport were confused and felt strongly bad for me. I would like a full refund as well. Thank you. Please contact back. 416806-6530 or email me at email@example.com"
Pros: "Crew was friendly."
Cons: "Lack of maintenance. Seats did not recline, seat in front of me was broken. No reading lights available. One washroom became inoperable. Just showing a lack of maintenance or cost saving measures until new planes are delivered. Not a great impression for a carrier striving to compete against Air Canada. I would say they are competing with Air Transat."
Cons: "having to walk outside the plane in the snow to get on the bus and vise versa. it was cold and I got a bad cold...."
Cons: "We couldn't take the flight as Westjet could not get us there on time and would not hold the flight ...... see above"
Cons: "We were told not to take the late flight to TO as Westjet would not hold the connecting flight (TO to Gatwick) for us. This meant our TUI connection in Gatwick to Chambery would have been wasted along with bus transfers. West jet did not offer us AC flights that were available to keep us near to our schedule. We ended up cancelling the Westjet flights and buying AC flights to Heathrow at a cost of $3300 + $300 taxi to gatwick + abandoned bus to Gatwick Westjet did offer us a flight on Sunday ! In the end, we are not sure if booking thru Kayak was part of the problem as Wesjet staff said ..... Oh you booked thru a 3rd party Comments ?"
Pros: "The flight was not cancelled in spite of poor weather"
Cons: "Flight on tarmac for 2 hours after loading passengers no word regularly from pilots or anyone for a long time. Baggage loading and no accountability for huge delays for lost luggage containers? Who is the logistics team? This is not the first time westjet has provided poor service on their international flights. Training if ground staff onsystems is poor. He guest services at tronto openly claimed they did lot know how to operate certain screens for transactions."
Pros: "We survived"
Cons: "On an 8 hour flight there’s no complimentary meal. I paid for a meal and it was worse than free plane food and starved for the rest of the trip. The chairs were horribly uncomfortable with no lower back support and we were not even given pillows and blankets. There was also no free entertainment. I rented a tablet and had it taken away an hour before landing while I was in the middle of a movie. I might have been ok with that if the flight attendant had politely asked for it back rather than rudely waving and pointing while I stared at her blankly trying to figure out what she wanted. Next time I’ll pay a bit more for an airline that respects its passengers and our comfort."
Pros: "Free upgrade and gate check!"
Cons: "No checked bags or meals for economy passengers"
Pros: "Basics of chips or pretzels as one food offering"
Pros: "Friendly, polite crew. Well organized boarding"
Pros: "Only problem is my flight didnt have screens and you had to pay for a tablet. I get screens on my flights to Edmonton and Sask for work with Westjet all the time but on a long flight to London they're majorly lacking. A basic meal over a 9.5 hour flight should be included as well."
Cons: "1 for usb charging ports though. I still love Westjet but different priorities for International flights should a no brainer."
Pros: "Soft voice of flight attendants with such an early flight."
Cons: "Paying for food. Paying for luggage. Movies in a loop, not on demand. Missed beginnings of all movies I watched."
Pros: "Really great attendants. Friendly and humorous."
Cons: "They took the tablets pretty early it felt. 45 minutes before we landed. But other than that, great experience!"
Pros: "After our horrendous flight to America with Norwegian (never again!!!) it was refreshing to have some space and the staff was friendly"
Cons: "lnternet was very expensive ($4-5 for 30 minutes, so l did not bother) no entertainment whatsoever, but okay for a budget flight during the night"
Pros: "When they fixed the aircraft it was overcrowded but okay"
Cons: "Their dishonesty. We were delayed 25hours. I am out of pocket by several hundreds of pounds. Two months later they have still not compensated me. yet the Canadians that were on the fight have been reimbursed. The message is loud and clear if you are British do not fly West Jet"
Cons: "You have to download an app to watch movies/tv. There is no food served (transatlantic flight!) unless purchased 48 hours beforehand."
Pros: "Brought our own sandwiches.."
Cons: "We were invited to send our carry iron bags to the hold at the gate. We delivered them to the plane door on the jetway. My wife's bag didn't make it from Edmonton to London Gatwick. That's the last time I send anything to the hold ."
Cons: "Plane needs to be upgraded, don't charge for meals or baggage"
Pros: "Very helpful! Very enjoyable flight, I was worried about my bags fitting as I took a 46L backpacking bag with me but it rit great and staff was so nice!"
Pros: "the price"
Cons: "they left late"
Pros: "West Jet is just so much more professional than other airlines that you could select ! The attention to detail goes above & beyond to make each person feel welcome !"
Cons: "From check-in to the flight crew, West Jet is the best !"
Pros: "As usual, the gate and air crew were extremely helpful and efficient. I love that the flight attendants almost always have a great sense of humour. This helps put everyone at ease and in a good mood for take-off. The flight was right on time."
Cons: "We gate-checked our baggage on the first leg of the flight and didn't quite understand why we had to take it off and back on again for this flight when it was on the same plane. There wasn't much legroom; and when the rather thoughtless guy in front of me reclined his seat fully, I could barely move. Luckily, it was a short flight."
Pros: "The service was okay and departed on time."
Cons: "I didnt like not having entretainment (no TV or free wifi). Meals not included on economy class."
Pros: "The crew were very friendly and the meal I pre-ordered was very nice. Snacks and beverages were complimentary."
Cons: ""Engine trouble" so off the plane and back to the gate. Not much information conveyed to us. Just sitting and waiting. Took off about 2 hours late. No entertainment. $6.99 for a tablet."
Pros: "Best WestJet flight ever!"
Cons: "No issues."
Pros: "Plus seats reasonable price and very comfortable"
Cons: "No lounge access"
Pros: "Reaching my destination"
Cons: "Wish the emails/alerts came sooner. I waz always in transit when i was told my flights had been delayed or cancelled. I wont blame people for weather but it was the most annoying trip i have yet to take. I dont mind dissapointment but please dont waste my time."
Pros: "Cabin crew in first-class very helpful and kind. Cabin manager came and thanked me personally which was nice touch. Great service."
Pros: "Excellent crew"
Cons: "No issue at all"
Pros: "same as above."
Cons: "same as above."
Pros: "There wasn’t much to like. One of the crew members stood out by being helpful; his colleagues were bureaucratic and disengaged."
Cons: "This was a BA flight. Food in T3 in toronto was a disgrace, and the whole lounge experience was poor. The sleeping arrangements in business class had no privacy; the food onboard was mediocre. The Air CANADA flight on the same route is far better in every respect."
Pros: "Movie choices were good."
Cons: "It was cold and very little leg room. Food was barely warm"
Pros: "Clean and well appointed plane, enough room to get comfortable, great on-time performance."
Cons: "Only coffee served over a 3-hour flight"
Pros: "The crew made the entertainment free because of the delay. They were very hard working to make things right."
Cons: "Plane was late at Fenver and Heathrow and into Geneva. Plane seating was uncomfortable for such a long flight. This is an airline issue not specifically BA/Finnair."
Pros: "The accommodations made me feel like I was in first class!"
Cons: "The screaming child behind me ):"
Cons: "Plane had to be switched, but the process was disorganized and frustrating. Had to miss my connection as a result"
Pros: "Food was good for airplane food."
Cons: "Plane only had screens for the movie in the center aisle and only every five rows or so."
Cons: "I sat in the window seat. Trying to get out of the row is very difficult. The arm rests do not rise high enough to get around without needing to climb over them."
Pros: "It was a quick, smooth flight."
Cons: "The chicken for dinner was horrible. The call buttons for assistance sounded constantly the entire flight.. Not sure if it was a malfunction."
Pros: "Direct from San Diego to Heathrow."
Cons: "The seats are very small--and I am a small woman--so the flight felt cramped. The food was just ordinary airline food--little taste. Coffee served essentially black--no offer of milk or cream. Take it or leave it-- Crew helpful if you could flag someone down. Most irritating: could not check in online for some unexplained reason and required to arrive two hours early. BA does no subscribe to TSA so spent time in a line unnecessarily. AND, then the crew arrived over an hour late so the flight left at least an hour late. The crew explained that their downtown bus did not arrive and they could not arrange one. Given the close proximity to the airport, this should have been a 10 minute cab ride."
Pros: "Flight was 2 hours late taking off. Completely ruined plans we had made for our first day in London"
Cons: "Experienced very rude cabin crew"
Pros: "Called BA (the carrier for our FinnAir flight) when I couldn't check in (didn't have a booking number that worked). Staff member did tell me that all was in order with our booking. He wasn't able to check us in anyway, as something was amiss with 'the system'. In the end all worked out fine, we just made sure to get to the airport early to make sure we got decent seats."
Cons: "A bit nerve wracking to see online that our flight information 'could not be found' when trying to check in with the booking numbers I had!"
Pros: "Flight was not super crowded. Crew were lovely."
Cons: "No seat back entertainment...had to endure The Charlie Brown movie, Nelson Mandela biopic and lousy boxing movie. Seats extremely small...would have been awful if plane was at full capacity. Plane very dated...no frills"
Pros: "Good entertainment. Arrived on time. Unnoticeable smooth landing."
Cons: "OK. For what I paid, I am not expecting much."
Pros: "Maybe they should call these flights "Byzantine Airways". Finnair doesn't fly Boston to London, so my Finnair flight was on British Airways, but I did it that way because BA wanted more money that day. As a flight, it was OK. I don't think I have much to say about Finnair."
Pros: "I got me where i needed to go. The food was okay."
Cons: "Lost luggage, poor seats, poor entertainment."
Pros: "Accuracy Staff Serving"
Cons: "My name was wrongly written on the passanger list."
Cons: "No entertainment system for each passenger."
Pros: "Liked the upgrade seat"
Cons: "Food was aweful both the dinner and the breakfast the following morning ."
Pros: "Nice staff. Food was quite good I wanted a window seat. Request not filled. Over all flight was good."
Cons: "There was a terrible smell; food and drinks were served two hours after the flight started, it was dirty, cold and cramped. The whole experience was traumatising!"
Pros: "The configuration of the seats are really awkward. Seems very interesting at a glance, but not so nice when you have to sit in it for 10 hours. The business class seats are very narrow. I'm pretty petite so it was okay for me, but I think an average or bigger than average person would have a hard time turning at all while the seat is in lie flat position. I had a window seat which gives you more privacy as long as you have the divider up between you and the passenger next to you. You are really arm length away from each other though. And! You can't have the divider down the entire time because they serve your meals by passing it over to you across your neighbor through the divider. The divider is also required to be down during taxi, take off and landing. So, I'd imagine it to be very awkward if you're sitting next to a total stranger. You also have to straddle over someone's legs if you want to get out of your seat to the bathroom if you have window seats."
Pros: "Movie selection was excellent."
Cons: "Uncomfortable seats and tight quarters. First class was too expensive."
Cons: "I booked the finnair flight because it was direct and charged $60 for additional bags to check in. For me this was really important since I was moving countries so I needed to check in multiple bags. But since this was in partnership with British Airways, I was charged $90 instead of $30. This was not mentioned or made clear before I made my purchase, if i buy a finnair flight then I should be charged finnair prices on baggage. If not, this should have been made clear before hand so I could have weighed my flight options. I hope you are able to provide a resolution."
Cons: "The upgrade to World Traveler Plus was $330.00 and worthless. They assured me Business Class food service. NOT TRUE. You get the usual coach class prison-type food. Non-existent flight crew service (I got one mini can of Coke the entire flight). Cramped seat next to noisy bathroom. Whole experience was bad."
Pros: "B.787 flight operated by BA; free wine, great food and IFE."
Cons: "Seating now so cramped it's becoming dangerous."
Pros: "Good food - two meals at just the right time."
Cons: "I regularly fly between Chicago and London and dread having to get on AA90. The planes are ridiculously old with barely any legroom and no seat-back entertainment. On this occasion, my friend sitting next to me, who is 5'10" had his knees right up against the seat in front. When the passengers in front reclined it was almost impossible to get comfortable. There is no seat-back entertainment. For some this may not be a big deal, what with iPads and other devices, but it speaks to AA's failure to consider it's customers comfort and ease on long-haul flights."
Cons: "When I got to Phl I missed my connection to London. No one seemed to care that I needed to be in England by the 18th. They kept retorting me to arrive in England on the 19th. I told them multiple times Id be flexible and go to any city in the UK just for them to get me there on the 18th. The First person I talked to said it was impossible. So I called again and talked to another person and all of a sudden it was possible. The worst part was they sent me to Boston after that I didn't get to Boston until 1:50 am and they did not compensate with hotel or anything while my flight to London was not until 8:00 am the next morning. So I spent the night in the airport. Oh and then when I finally got to London, my bag is lost and they told me I'd have it by tomorrow and I still do not have my bag and have called and they said they can't tell me anything."
Pros: "Flight attendants were very helpful and joyful. Food wasn't too bad for airplane food! :-)"
Cons: "I find it appalling that there is a charge for seat selection. Please add 10 cents to the price of a ticket and do away with the seat charge. It would buy you loyality."
Pros: "It was pleasant surprise to learn that Finnair is serviced by British Airways out of the Atlanta, GA airport. The service is amazing. Having never flown Finnair or British Air, I was up for a fun new experience. British Air lived up to its great reputation."
Cons: "Everything was great. No complaints."
Pros: "First time across the Atlantic, and the British/French crew was the most polite crew ever."
Cons: "Cramped, cold,"
Pros: "Very pleasant and efficient crew"
Cons: "Departing 50 minutes late. However, most of the time was made up enroute"
Pros: "Crew were friendly and professional."
Cons: "Entertainment system had a few issues."
Pros: "Good crew-excellent service."
Cons: "Cramped seats-I'm 6 feet tall and I need space. Emirates & Lufthansa are sooo much better!"
Pros: "Very friendly and helpful cabin crew. Excellent boarding procedures. The food wasn't awful. Everyone seemed relaxed and upbeat...maybe because the holidays are approaching."
Cons: "The rolls were ice cold, and the butter was not real butter. My husband found the seats cramped, and little foot room. I'm 5'2" and they were ok for me. The child behind me screamed and then projectile vomited for the last half hour of the flight, which can't be laid at BS's door. Many people were still on their cell phones and laptops during the whole takeoff, despite multiple announcements. I would have kicked them off."
Cons: "If I had known when I made the reservation it was American airline would have never booked a ticket plane was dirty food terrible the whole plane needed a update"
Pros: "Great service"
Cons: "Equipment defects"
Pros: "The 10 1/2 hour flight ended up only taking less than 9 hours since we had the wind in our favor. I loved all of the free movie selections and the service was wonderful. Great experience."
Cons: "The food."
Pros: "Great staff on BA, very helpful and friendly, even going above and beyond to find me a drink I had requested. I'm not a frequent traveller these days and I enjoyed the variety of entertainment available. Flight was a few minutes early, which was a bonus."
Cons: "My headset wasn't working, luckily I had my own nearby and was able to use those."
Pros: "The crew really were fabulous! Went the extra mile in tough situation. Accommodating and cheerful!"
Cons: "Having to wait almost 3hours to finally leave ground."
Pros: "Crew was nice and helpful. Food was good."
Cons: "Tiny seats and no leg room!!!! I am not a big person."
Pros: "On time departures. Good service"
Cons: "Tiny seats. Wouldn't let me pay for an upgrade. Last time I ever use kayak"
Pros: "Good Entertainment, and I had an empty seat next to me. Crew was attentive."
Cons: "My luggage was lost when I got to Paris and the staff at the ticket booth in Denver were not aware that my final destination was Paris."
Pros: "The flight was not full. Dinner was delicious."
Cons: "1 hour delay for repairs before take off no overhead light when I wanted to read"
Pros: "The flight was easy and fairly quick all things considered. The service was friendly and the flight was smooth."
Cons: "The seats were a little crammed in the back of the plane but still not bad even."
Pros: "Nice new plane"
Cons: "Seats too narrow"
Cons: "My flight was delayed, I missed my connection flight and now they lost my luggage. Staff are very friendly, but they can't do much to help me. Icelandair is doing OK in handling the situation, but let's see...I am still in an uncertain situation"
Cons: "In general, not good enough for an overnight flight. Our flight was late, we missed our connections which is the primary reason I am complaining"
Pros: "Crew was friendly."
Cons: "I was required to gate check a bag, previously okay to bring on board, and it was lost upon arrival."
Pros: "Free kids meal was nice. Good selection of kids shows."
Cons: "Seating was not as expected due to plane change. Screens did not work on first leg, and screen controlled seat recline & lights."
Pros: "The crew was excellent- courteous and helpful. The outgoing flight was good, but the return flight was quite a disaster. Boarding was disorganized and had to stand for a very long time. Seats were very narrow, and did NOT reline. The seatback entertainment and usb power did NOT work in our section."
Cons: "Better boarding procedure in KEF. Our plane felt like a third-world aircraft with non-working equipment, VERY tight non-reclining seats. A cracker would have been nice on a 6 hour flight."
Pros: "The price was good, the crew was friendly, and the on-line check in process was smooth."
Cons: "Non-functional entertainment consoles..so we could not watch anything, use our reading lights, adjust the temp, or summon staff if we needed to. With a bar in the middle of my foot space, there was no space under my seat for my personal item; No food on an international flight also disappointing."
Cons: "We had a different plane with narrow seats - ok for me but not the person beside me. Nothing but tea or coffee - all food and beverage had to be purchased. My experience. Uncomfortable and hungry."
Pros: "Fly Saga business.... exceptional food and service."
Pros: "Crew was very attentive"
Cons: "Comfort in seating was lacking, also having the luggage sitting out in the rain for 20 minutes was not ideal."
Pros: "Crew was nice"
Cons: "Snacks would have been nice"
Pros: "Nice business class seats, comfortable, quiet"
Cons: "Movie selection could have been larger"
Pros: "Crew was amazing!"
Cons: "A little more air flow in cabin"
Cons: "Definitely not a comfortable flight. And being that it’s an international flight, some free snacks would have been nice."
Pros: "I like that the flight was very comfortable & there was lots of options for entertainment!"
Cons: "Honestly it was probably the best flight I have ever taken!"
Pros: "Crew was really friendly, we had the seats behind first class so we had a ton of legroom. I would definitely fly Iceland air."
Cons: "We had a 5 hour flight and they didnt serve snacks of food. The flight didnt include bags. 2 bags cost $160"
Cons: "Very limited food choice."
Pros: "Treated well, staff were kind, met some great people going to Iceland as well"
Cons: "Of course everyone would always love a bit more space - but we understand why we can’t :)"
Cons: "When I booked this flight last March the booking info said 1 free bag. When we got to the airport we were told that we had to pay $94 Can per bag because we had Economy Light class. We had the same issue returning but the cost was $55 US. On top of that Iceland Air changed planes and bumped us from row 10 to 41 - the last row. Bizarrely there is no customer service desk at the Reykjavik Airport - they just give you a little card with the website for customer service. I don't understand how any airline does this! BTW, they blame the third party for the issues! That is you!!!"
Cons: "No food goingacross"
Pros: "My headline says it all. I am a regular user of Icelandair."
Cons: "I never like it when the person in front pushes bac their seat squishing me and putting the screen on the back of their seat too close to my face, but this is true of all sidelined. They should make seats unmovable, or make everyone lie back!!"
Pros: "We didn't crash so that's a bonus."
Cons: "Well first off it was a connector flight from Toronto to Reykjavik to Oslo to Tromso, Norway. The first leg was delayed and then they lost my baggage, which happens, I get it. But then due to the delayed flight and lost baggage I missed my connection to Tromso. Then apparently neither airline can do anything to help me so I lose my entire flight cost because I booked through a third party. So I had to rebook a new flight at a premium cost just to get where I needed to go or risk losing my whole vacation. On top of that the baggage they lost is my backpack...hard to go backpacking across Norway with no backpack. Then they ship the backpack to the wrong airport, incorrectly wrote down my wrong cell number so they couldn't even call me...one cluster f*ck after another."
Pros: "Great selection of movies and tv shows. All other amenities as on Denver to Reyjkavik."
Cons: "Flight attendants not very attentive. Didn’t receive our pre-ordered meal until we asked for it on our descent into London. Finished the sandwich on the taxiway."
Pros: "The seats were very comfortable. Crew was great"
Cons: "No games o the entertainment system"
Pros: "Efficient short connection in Reykjavik. Also the luggage made it to the next flight."
Pros: "This flight was less full so we could spread out more, but it still was not overly comfortable. My boyfriend forgot his phone on our last flight, but the crew was very helpful and got it back for him, which we appreciated very much."
Cons: "It’s just not a comfortable plane."
Cons: "The bag check in process was unorganized. The bag belt was not working and out bags were left outside of the counter. They were not scanned in and did not make the flight even though we arrived at the airport 3 hours before boarding. It is very disappointing to get to Iceland and not have clothing to go explore. We are hopeful the bags will arrive before we leave."
Cons: "I will never fly Icelandair anymore because they don’t provide any free meal for passengers. Even the expensive meal l paid for, taste horrible. I’ve never seen anything like that. Giving meals or snacks are part of passengers comfort."
Pros: "I really enjoyed flying with Iceland Air. One bag included for check in with ticket - which can be hard to come by these days. As well, the plane was brand new, leather seats and entertainment system. There was water and a blanket waiting for you at your seat once you boarded. They were very efficient and the crew made the trip a pleasant journey. Would highly recommend!"
Cons: "My boarding pass had me in row 9, at boarding they pushed me back to row 34, the last row on the plane. And the flight attendant was a little heavy, couldn't walk passed without bumping me. So much for sleeping."
Pros: "Having more leg room. Smaller plane. Short transit time."
Cons: "Being charged for a $10 meal after paying $100s for a ticket"
Pros: "Boarding was good and crew were pleasant"
Cons: "All bathrooms were out on the plane for the final 2 hours. You have to pay for any food you would like."
Pros: "The onboard entertainment was excellent. We are both tall and we offered longer legroom seats at checking! Only good for purchase on board so we are before boarding. We purchased a light snack on the second leg of the trip. It hit the spot. Blankets and pillows were provided."
Cons: "It was all good!"
Pros: "good movies and TV shows to watch"
Cons: "they didn't ever announce when they'd started boarding they boarded everyone at once and had us jammed into a tiny area, standing around for 20 minutes we sat on the tarmac for over an hour we ran out of fuel halfway to the UK we had to make an emergency stop in glasgow, scotland to refuel sat on the tarmac in glasgow for over an hour they never offered us food or drinks, did not give any free offers. the pilot apologized once in scotland, and once on landing. no other apologies or attempts to communicate. absolutely awful experience."
Cons: "The flight was and hour and a half taking off and we almost missed our cruise connection because of it"
Cons: "How can an international flight not have a single snack or beverage offered without a fee?"
Cons: "To whom it may concern, In the last week I have flown Iceland Air three times. In fact had it been up to me, the first time would have been the last. But due to family traveling, our plans were set. So listed below is the detailed description of my horrible travels with your airline as well as all the added expenses it cost me. Due to all of the misshaps with Iceland air I have had in the last couple weeks, I made sure on my returning flight to check in and pick the seats for myself and the family member I was traveling with for my returning flight from Gatwick to Iceland. However when we got the gate, my ticket dinged because they had moved my seat from next to my family to the back of the plane, because they over booked the flight. This has been a disaster only because of this airline. Next time I plan on using British airways, the flight I took with them was amazing and effortless on my part!"
Cons: "Are you serious? I fly to Europe, and the bag doesn't even make it out of Iceland? In fact, dozens of people didn't get their bags? They never put them on the plane? How does this happen? I am in London meeting with clients... and all I have is a sweatsuit. I don't have time to go buy new clothes, so I will look like an idiot in front of my boss and our clients. Thanks a lot Icelandair."
Pros: "It was a nice short flight. The movie selection was good and the crew brought around drinks once we were in the air."
Pros: "This airline has so much going for it!... Pleasant staff, nice touches for overnight flight (bottled water as we entered the plane, pillow, blanket), plenty of legroom, TVs in the seat backs that work perfectly! What a treat!"
Pros: "Even though there was no food provided the overall flight was nice."
Pros: "Everyone was very kind and worked efficiently.."
Pros: "The price of the business class ticket was good and it allowed a stopover in Iceland at no extra cost."
Cons: "The flight was held for 30 minutes to accommodate another arriving flight, This caused me to rush in London. I flew Saga class, but the crew stayed in the kitchen, did not help to put up luggage, welcome us on board. They gave us a plastic bottle of water. There was no choice on the menu. The tray was put in front of you. There was no drink or snack upon boarding. Other than putting the tray in front of you and collecting it, the flight crew stayed in the kitchen. There was no interaction. There was nothing special about the comfort, entertainment or food. Also I like to see the flight path, but that was not available."
Pros: "Good service."
Cons: "Would have been nice to have a free meal. Flight arrived late at night with most food options closed"
Pros: "Finally getting off of Icelandair for good that day."
Cons: "See above."
Pros: "There were blankets. It was cool enough in cabin"
Cons: "Boarding was very difficult, exit a bus and no order to enter plane, lots of problems with people going in wrong direction and very narrow isle to try and cross paths. Very unorganized. Flight was delayed."
Pros: "Flight left and arrived on time. There were no surprises."
Pros: "Kind flight staff. I'm also 6' 6" and it seemed like there was slightly more leg room in the standard seats. I wouldn't say I was super comfortable but I could still feel my legs after the flight which is saying something."
Pros: "Airline crew were efficient and nice."
Cons: "The seat was better than the last flight. It was an older plane it seemed - so I found this interesting. Also we waited in the bus on the tarmac for quite a while before being able to load onto the plane. Perhaps they run more shuttles to the plane so passengers don't need to wait so long. Our luggage was delayed, but the claims folks dealt with it efficiently."
Pros: "Excellent service and exceptionally clean planes!"
