Cons: "SAS had simply cancelled the flight and is effectively unreachable for the refund."
Pros: "comfortable plane"
Cons: "small pastry with coffee"
Cons: "connection information very poor"
Pros: "The crew was very nice and friendly. I was not expecting walking down to the tarmac to board the plane. But flight was uneventful."
Cons: "Checking in didn’t open until 2 hours before plane was scheduled to take off. Really? We got to airport early so we could eat dinner. You are depriving the airport of revenue. Not to mention we had to stand there for over an hour. And then just one agent showed up. Terrible service and planning."
Pros: "Boarding was easy, flight was smooth and on time."
Cons: "Seats were snug, granted we had the less expensive tickets."
Cons: "Plane was changed to a different plane and caused lots of confusion. Boarding process was chaos, loaded all passengers in a room too small with many standing and getting too hot."
Cons: "Luggage fee were outrageous."
Pros: "Every seat has bottle of water"
Pros: "Good crew"
Cons: "Premium economy wasn’t as good as others"
Cons: "The flight was over 2 hours late leaving Copenhagen, and then we sat at the gate while they unloaded bags to find the luggage of some passengers who decided not to be on that flight. Then it was total chaos at O'Hare. Very few SAS ticket agents who were not prepared to deal with the many passengers who had missed connections. We spent the night on hard chairs in the airport when we could have been re-booked on a flight out that night if they had been at all organized and efficient."
Pros: "Friendly service"
Cons: "Audio quality not great"
Cons: "Poor customer service. No notification via text or email that there was a 5 hour delay, and no immediate rerouting for connecting flights. a 15 hour trip turned into 24+. Worst SAS experience ever."
Pros: "The seats were very comfortable -- the plane wasn't very full, so there was room to spread out for some folks. As a vegetarian, the lunch meal was EXCELLENT, thank you. There was a second snack given just before landing that was basically roasted peppers on bread that was not good -- so you know, many vegetarians actually have sensitivity against peppers, so perhaps another vegetable or option would be better there. Crew was very affable and helpful."
Cons: "See point before re: second snack. Our flight was delayed for two hours, presumably due to snow in Oslo. The boarding area was disorganized -- something I remember from flying through Norway a few years ago as well. I also didn't quite understand why I received priority boarding, as a United gold member on my outbound fight, but not on my return. So the inconsistency was a bit confusing/frustrating. But the flight overall was smooth, and the accommodations quite good."
Cons: "Expensive rates on luggage"
Pros: "premium economy"
Cons: "nothing, it was great!"
Cons: "Wound up having to pay 150$ for checking 2 bags. Almost more than the tickets. Feel ripped off. Don't remember the web getting a chance when i ordered the tickets to purchase at a lower rate. SAS said, since i bought the tickets through a travel agent, there was nothing they could do. Next time I'll buy tickets directly from SAS."
Pros: "Pros: -Good food -Good entertainment -Attentive staff"
Cons: "Cons: -Uncomfortable seats ( I took the free seat and didn't upgrade) -Poor air circulation ( I hardly felt any AC) -Lack of overall plane space"
Pros: "Comfortable seats and attentive crew!"
Cons: "Old movies not up to date."
Pros: "Smoothest landing I've ever experienced."
Cons: "I missed the refreshments, if any were served at all. Granted I was tired and probably dosed off during that part of the flight."
Cons: "Flight delayed so that would not be able to make the SAS flight. Therefore had to switch flights to go to CHicago instead. But initial flight was booked under alaska--but boarding pass unable to be printed from any of the kiosks and we were told to talk to American. American didn't know anything about it. THen stood in Assistance line for 45 minutes to be told that we needed to talk to VIrgin American. They rebooked us on to American, which then promptly was also delayed for several hours, and we thereby missed our connection. Throughout the process there were no customer service representatives either in person or on the phone who were remotely helpful. Overall, worst travel experience of my life."
Cons: "Cattle call boarding in a culture where standing in que is unheard of."
Pros: "Nothing to be honest"
Cons: "Checkin was a disaster, girl was not aware of anything she was doing and after over ten minutes of explainatiin she still put me and my bags on a wrong flight. Lady at the boarding gate tried to help and finally managed to send me and my bag in the same flight. Even bigger disappointment was that I booked a business class seat and paid three times more money then a normal economy ticket, there wasn't any business class seat and all seats were occupied in the front rows. Staff was generally rude and not willing to help."
Pros: "The food was very good surprisingly"
Cons: "Again the seats are too tight and they should not be allowed to recline"
Pros: "It was a clean plane and entertainment was good."
Cons: "Crew wasn't nice unless you were Scandinavian. I asked questions about going into Stockholm for our long layover. How easy it was, etc. they were less than helpful. My daughter and I figured it out ourselves. Won't fly them on next trip. Air France or BA r better"
Pros: "Flight attendant was friendly, tea or coffee offer."
Cons: "How much really does it cost to offer a juice when the people are travelling at 7 am?"
Pros: "Even though I did not get the seat I paid extra for, it was a great flight."
Pros: "It was a pleasant flight with friendly service. Boarding was smooth and efficient."
Cons: "Food choices and limited entertainment. I know that SAS need to remain competitive, but strict limits in drinks seems a bit cheap."
Pros: "People were nice"
Cons: "They charged me 60 pounds to check my bag after I checked my bag in online. When I got to the airport, they told me I had a bag on my connecting flight from Copenhagen to Helsinki but not on my flight to Copenhagen from LHR. At the airport I was charged 60 pounds for a small bag. Crazy! Completely unreasonable. Never flying SAS again if I can avoid it."
Pros: "The crew were very friendly"
Cons: "The entertainment System could use an update - more recent movies and TV shows would help."
Pros: "So far best flight I've ever experienced ! I was traveling to Europe and both ways I was pleasantly surprised, planes were on time , super nice crew and great food , Way to go SAS !!!"
Pros: "Food was ok"
Cons: "Crew members not friendly."
Pros: "It was great to have a bottle of water right at the beginning of the flight! Made it easier to settle down and relax."
Cons: "It would be great to have a greater offer of music. I really like to listen to some new music from good artists and to get inspired for new music on a long flight. It's too bad, SAS only offers playlists of 1 hour..."
Pros: "tjis flight was on United Airlines. It was nice and simple"
Cons: "the landinf was ROUGH and The plane was very grimy"
Pros: "Introduce meals even to economy class"
Pros: "Staff seemed nice. Boarding didn't take too long even when I was selected for a random check."
Cons: "The air conditioning didn't go on until take off. There were no options for food. All alcoholic beverages were not complementary and priced too high. I got sick after eating the meal that was provided. i reserved a seat but at check in the computer assigned me a different seat number. I was flying with a family member and instead of sitting next to them I had to sit next to a stranger."
Pros: "everything except"
Pros: "Great food, smooth trip"
Cons: "Could use bigger movie selection"
Pros: "Shorter than usual flight, captain made the flight in 1 hour 15 minutes!"
Cons: "Flight delay of over two hours No snacks and drinks limited because of limited supply on board replacement plane"
Cons: "I and my 2 children, 10 and 8, thought the dinner was really bad. Also, entertainment selection was lacking. Other than that I thought sas did a great job with the flight."
Pros: "It was weird boarding last. We understand different airlines have different policies but we believe letting the elderly and families with little children should always have first priority... We as a family and with an elderly who is not 100% well have big challenges... It is always nice for other airlines to get us in earlier so the elderly and the little children can settle. This airline's policy is a shift for us. If not for the good price, we'd choose another... But it was just ok just a longer wait... Children and the elderly should always have the best benefit... Not the busiiness people.. Crazy policy!"
Cons: "Service was mediocre. Staff was nice but not very caring like other airlines and most were older women who are burnt out... Its almost like they don't want to be there. Food was excellent but there was a charge for red wine. This is Europe. Thought the US was bad... Economy class comfort is not that comfortable as always... o well! Your staff English especially the women announcers were terrible. We could not understand hardly anything. The pilots were a lot better! Need to take English classes.. Sorry but have to be honest..."
Pros: "The food is great, the flight attendants are great, and the flight is comfortable."
Cons: "There is little legroom unless you are in first class."
Cons: "I asked for water and was given half a cup, when I requested they fill the cup they said if I wanted more I had to buy it. In addition, when we left the plane everyone pushed their way off instead of following the order of the rows."
Pros: "New seats and entertainment consoles. Smooth flight."
Cons: "The food!"
Cons: "Didn't like the economy class seats paying for business.A real rip off."
Pros: "Flight was cancelled but i didn't receive email notification from SAS Moreover i was able to check-in on SAS website and print boarding pass 10 ours before flight (and after Kayak sent me notification that flight "may be cancelled"), and they sent me confirmation and everything. When i arrived in airport i realized flight was actually cancelled. And i tried to call and nobody picked up the pphone. I was travelling from Moscow."
Pros: "Great choice of movies."
Cons: "Having to pay for soft drinks (except water) on a transatlantic flight. Food was just correct."
Pros: "Good selection of movies on the entertainment center."
Cons: "Drinks were overpriced $9.00 for a small bottle of wine and $3.00 for a coke Their was no choice of meals. The only offering was chicken curry, which I don't care for."
Pros: "I was traveling internationally alone with my 5-month old daughter. The crew was both kind and accommodating. It was a smooth stress-free trip for all!"
Cons: "It was from Oslo due to the changes in my ticket as explained before."
Pros: "The crew ok. Seats not comfortable"
Cons: "Serve snacks at least on trans-atlantic flights."
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"
Pros: "Boarding was good. Flights were on time and crew was courteous and helpful."
Cons: "Planes were rented. Pilots not as familiar with plane; planes interior deteriorating; seats too narrow; three men in a row (could be easily fixed) had too broad of shoulders to fit comfortably; under seat storage dividers offset so not clear feet nor luggage space; both planes smelled terrible;"
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."
Cons: "I had to pay for my check in bag extra, which was not clear in the booking process. Very misleading!"
Cons: "Old equipment as Maxes had to be replaced. Very limited luggage space in cabin. Little leg room and airline making a bundle off passengers with carry-ons that were over weight and charging to put under plane. Maybe not an issue if they had the Boeing Max up and running."
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: "Nice business class seats, comfortable, quiet"
Cons: "Movie selection could have been larger"
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"
Pros: "Everything Nothing"
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 :)"
Pros: "Friendly crew, comfortable seats, good cabin climate, good selection of movies to watch."
Cons: "Late boarding, slow process due to some confusion at the gate for many of the passengers."
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: "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: "Easy on and off. On time."
Cons: "Plane was loud. Drink service but any food must be purchased."
Pros: "Good selection of audio books"
Cons: "Left late and did not give info that we would have to climb stairs to board plane"
Pros: "Love the greeting with Icelandic water and friendly atmosphere. Comfortable seating. Entertainment fulfilling ~ especially the music"
Cons: "Food to purchase was very mediocre and expensive for what you get. No snacks given just drinks ... for a long flight."
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."
Cons: "I was not given the option to select checked baggage when I checked in online. I was then charged 176 Euros to check my bags. Then my luggage was lost. I still don’t have it. Flight was late. Iceland airport needs to enlarge their airport with more ramps, or schedule their flights in a way that they can handle the crowds better. Having to ride busses to and from the plane to terminal multiple times is exhausting."
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: "Direct flight"
Cons: "There is only a serve of drink, headset need to pay"
Cons: "Not enough food options. Free Pretzels would even have been appreciated."
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."
Pros: "It got us there safely. Seats were pretty comfortable. No food except via purchase."
Cons: "Icelandair was on strike, so at least our flight went, albeit late."
Pros: "Excellent on board entertainment."
Cons: "No meal on board for an international flight."
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"
Cons: "No meals or snacks provided on a 6 hour long flight, and the food on board was expensive."
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: "Great service and crew. Food was excellent"
Cons: "London to Newark with connection in Iceland. Total 9 hours Need to update new movies. Icelandair has a large selection but of older movies that we all have seen already."
Cons: "How can an international flight not have a single snack or beverage offered without a fee?"
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: "Seat back entertainment system was modern with good selections"
Cons: "No food served--only beverages, but I knew that going in."
Cons: "No aircon, small seats and no snacks/food served on the flight. Also the entertainment offers were meager for moderately expensive tickets. The fun began in REK. We arrived on time but something at the gate was broken so instead of bringing stairs to the plane they kept us on the plane for an additional 45 min sitting at the gate. During the wait we asked the flight attendants multiple times to make sure our planes would be waiting and were told that Iceland air planes will wait. When we finally got off with stairs, most connecting flights, even from Iceland air, had already left and passengers were stuck in REK. We were then re-routed through Copenhagen after pressuring the gate attendants into making sure we would be arriving in Frankfurt the same day since we could not spend a day in REK as other passengers had to do. We spent an entire day in airports and planes finally making Frankfurt (including time changes) at 830pm, 9 hours later than planned. All in all I won't fly Iceland air again."
Pros: "Everyone was very kind and worked efficiently.."
Pros: "Good service."
Pros: "The plane was nice and very clean and the magazine and in flight entertainment were great. Crew was friendly and good too, and we really appreciated the 2 bag per person allowance. No bag fees! Hooray!"
Cons: "We were shocked that in a 7-hour flight, we didn't receive anything to eat whatsoever. Not even a bag of peanuts! Really uncomfortable to go so long without eating and arrive in Iceland at 6:30 in the morning starving hungry. Pack your own lunch, or be prepared to suffer!"
Pros: "Clean, comfortable, crew very helpful, punctuality...."
Cons: "Space to carry-on"
Pros: "Comfortable seats; attentive crew."
Cons: "Cabin temperature; too cold."
Pros: "Quick flight"
Cons: "More leg room"
Cons: "Difficulties to going out of the airplane"

Pros: "Seats were pretty comfortable"
Cons: "The food literally gave me food poisoning"
Pros: "the entertainment and ease"
Cons: "the noise"
Pros: "The process to go through security and boarding was smooth and efficient"
Pros: "Flow as smooth , attendants were good."
Cons: "Boarding was delayed and then we sat about an hour on board waiting to get de-iced. Ended up over 1 1/2 hours late."
Cons: "3hr delay sitting in the plane."
Pros: "The pilot was honest and concerned with the safety of the aircraft. That was most appreciated."
Cons: "Flight was 3 hours late. There was no liquor or even a small snack provided. Minimum service by the flight crew. Most disappointed!"
Cons: "Seats are smaller than other airlines, terrible experience. I felt I was being squeezed the whole time"
Cons: "Old plane small cabin and seats hurt after 4 hrs."
Pros: "The flight was on time"
Cons: "The plane noise was loud"
Pros: "Flying to Europe departure timing and the crew service were great. The regular food was better than all the bigger airlines I have flown recently. I look forward to the trying the gourmet offerings in the future."
Cons: "You have to pay extra for seats assigned when you buy your ticket or select them 24hrs before departure. Airlines still have not learned how to deal with babies on parents laps. The little children on parents laps on full flights are as uncomfortable as the neighboring passengers. Bathrooms need mid flight service. Passengers were not considerate."
Cons: "my suitcase are mising"
Pros: "This was a standard flight.... I slept most of it so it's hard to rate....."
Cons: "My luggage did not arrive on the flight I am greatly indisposed as the hot weather requires frequent change of clothes."
Cons: "The flight was delayed from 10:30pm until 2:30am. Horrible experience. No personal entertainment, food was disgusting!"
Pros: "Wine, seats, food"
Cons: "Complete scam . Thought I was booking through kayak and was duplicitously sent to justfly.com which is a complete fraud."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "not enough drinks offered during 4 hour flight"
Cons: "Three hour delay due to wind caused chaos. Very late notification of delay, confusion at gate."

Pros: "Loved the updates on my flight"
Pros: "Can’t think of anything except my window seat"
Pros: "Crew was friendly. Boarding was fairly quick."
Cons: "Flight was delayed for a bunch of reasons. No video screens on the flight. No info booklets in the back of the seats. No complimentary snacks."
Cons: "Dirty, unsanitary plane. Bathroom unusable. Screaming toddler behind me. One of the worst plane trips I've ever been on."
Pros: "Airline staff were very friendly and accommodating."
Cons: "Seats were not comfortable for a transatlantic trip- difficult to sleep."
Pros: "The crew was nice and seats roomy. The value for the flight was great."
Cons: "The only thing that I did not enjoy was how extremely hot the flight was. I was in light weight clothes and I was still sweating while on the plane :("
Pros: "boarding, crew"
Cons: "seats too small"
Cons: "Flight was delayed 12 hours. They didn't offer hotel rooms so we had to sleep on the floor of the airport (hundreds of passengers, including elderly and children). No communication. One person managing multiple delays, so rarely anyone at the desk to answer questions. Appalling."
Pros: "Boarding was efficient as Option Plus board right after first class. Flight was on time."
Cons: "Extremely cramped seating: the worst I have experienced. Terrible in-flight entertainment system; poor video quality; everybody views the same movie as it was in the 80s unless you think to bring your own tablet. Barely passable food (warm sandwich) and breakfast consisted of a slice of cake."
Pros: "Boarding was done efficiently"
Cons: "The seats were awful. Our luggage was severely damaged"
Cons: "No complaints about anything at all"
Cons: "Delayed for 90 min"
Pros: "Nothing in particular"
Cons: "Below average company"
Cons: "I was stuck in another city because a connecting flight was canceled so I never got on my flight to Rome. I didn't get a refund or credit or anything for my flight."
Pros: "The overall experience was so bad, that it is hard to think of anything positive.....oh, one thing. The beer they originally served me was room temperature and the kind stewardess went out of her way to get me a cold one."
Cons: "First off there was a 3 hour delay in the terminal at YYZ. Once on board, we sat at the gate for another hour (4 hour delay in total). Finally worst of all, since they are a "discount" airline, they fit in 9 seats per row as opposed to the usual 8 in an airbus 330, and I am sure more rows as well. (3x3x3 vs 2x4x2) I have never been so uncomfortable on a flight in my life, and I had an aisle seat! The guy next to me was an elderly, portly Portuguese man, and because the seats are so narrow, he was spilling over into my seat (no fault of his own). Neither of us could nap And the fare was not particularly cheap at $580 one way. It was truly horrible. I arrived exhausted and am still recovering from jet lag"
Cons: "The plane was hot due to an AC issue that delayed the flight for almost two hours, and then continued to be hot throughout the duration of the flight. The crew was rude and not very accommodating. The in-flight entertainment and food service was not up to date and sub-par. There is little that could motivate me to fly Air Transat again."
Cons: "Wish we knew to download the app before the flight to benefit from streaming movies"
Pros: "Great hostesses very friendly"
Cons: "Very poor meals and entertainment"
Cons: "We were an hour late boarding the flights. The chairs were also very uncomfortable and did not recline much; they were also so narrow."
Cons: "1 hour delay while sitting inside the plane. No snack nothing to eat"
Pros: "Lots of leg room!!"
Cons: "Food was horrible."
Pros: "Seat could recline. Movie was adequately recent"
Cons: "Flight was delayed for almost two hours. Flight attendance attitude was a little off-handish"
Pros: "Quick boarding. Nice staff."
Terribly inconvenient to not have WiFi for the entire 8hr flight. Sitting in business class, we were surprised the bread was served cold, not room temp, cold. They used to be served so that they seemed freshly baked. Same can be said for the squashes croissant at breakfast. Both were squashed flat. There was no champagne on the flight. And, bring back beverage service prior to take off!!!! Our departure was delayed for over 30 minutes so no beverages really stood out as something missing. Crew, seats, entertainment choices, all excellent!
Cons: "The flight was fine, but the aircraft arrived 3 hours late. That’s a long wait."
Cons: "Check in was just awful. Then a three hour delay and no one was forthcoming."
Cons: "I didn’t like anything about this flight, except that we arrived safely. I had the last seat, next to the toilet, and that container or whatever it is, was dirty. Every time someone flushed, I was bathed in the smell of urine. It was raining in Toronto; consequently, my checked bag was wet through. I’m glad I was coming home rather than arriving at a vacation destination, where all my stuff would’ve been wet. I’d like to see some effort put into keeping my bag dry. Also, the passengers had to slog through the rain to get on the plane!"
Pros: "Not much ch, safe arrival in BCN, the captains communication."
Cons: "The crew felt like they were wanting to yell at people and they took power pride actions to do so. If I did not know better, I thought there was a moment when the meal service was actually being tossed...but that would require effort and exertion. Asking for ice is a no no, please do not do so."
Cons: "AC was late causing a missed connection to YXE. They were unable to rebook us to Saskatoon for two or three days! They offered standby or Edmonton as our only options. We flew to Edmontonand then drove 6 hours in order to get home for work with no sleep. Unimpressed."
Pros: "It really sad to know on a 5 and a half hour flight they only offer coffee tea or soda ☹☹ . Never knew about the changes in purchasing a meal or snack.."
Cons: "Should have been informed somewhere about the changes in purchasing a meal."
Cons: "Why no food or snacks?"
Cons: "The television screen with on-board entertainment options didn't work properly, so I was unable to watch movies/television or play games. This was disappointing as it was a fairly long flight."
Pros: "Plane was nice Crew was great"
Pros: "Friendly crew, good food and comfortable seats"
Pros: "The food and the crew"
Pros: "The crew were really great and very pleasant and helpful"
Cons: "The plane on departure was extremely cold for almost the entire flight. The in-flight entertainment system didn't work on any of my electronic devices (3 cell phones and a tablet we're all attempted but none worked)"
Pros: "The crew was friendly and the plane was new."
Cons: "There were no media screens or TVs. This was an Air Canada 'Rouge' flight, which is apparently a more budget version of Air Canada, but I don't think that was apparent when we bought the tickets."
Cons: "Our connecting flight from Toronto to Thunder Bay was cancelled. AC put us in a hotel for the night. Thanks for the $15 dinner voucher. Almost paid for the salad. Then we had to get up at 530am to get the 6am hotel shuttle in order to get back to airport for our 8am flight. They seem to always cancel the 9pm flight from Thunder Bay to Toronto because not full enough. And the last flight is over sold so we have to stay the night in Toronto. Then don't offer the 9pm flight. Passengers have other commitments in their life's. We don't need AC to just hold us over for the night because one of their flights is have empty."
Cons: "There were too many things to mention, but I must say the customer service is not a strong point neither is a customer first mindset. The airlines apparent made several changes between my trip and I was threaten with additional bag fees when my ticket was very clear for two carry-ons and to checked bags, which also confirmed when I confirmed my seat request. After I was required to check my bags, I realized my earbuds were in the bag and the flight attendant did not give me a pair and actually told me I could purchase a pair...REALLY!I just did a 15 hour flight from Dubai, you were delayed by 2 hours on my last connecting flight and you can't comp a pair of .25 cent earbuds."
Cons: "Kiosk option wasn't supporting the baggage check policy, resulting in passenger were unable to print baggage tag and had to wait in long line over 1.5 hrs to check bag with staff. They also understated. It took me over 2 hrs to get throug check in process, not counting 45mins + through security check and custom. I had asked staff to expedite the process. C my flight was boarding. Staff could care or less and walked away. I had to run to my gate and almost miss my flight. Also, I was told that 1st checked bag was complimentary as this is a express aircraft. Staff wouldn't honor that. Come to find out as I entered the aircraft that they made many passengers do the complimentary gate check anyway. Rude and unaccompdating staff."
Cons: "I wish Air Canada sent check-in emails for flights in as well as out. I didn't get a reminder check-in email when I was flying out and that worried me a bit that there may be something wrong with my reservation. It also irritated me that because I had booked my flight through Kayak and not Air Canada directly I was not able to make any changes to the reservation online - I had to call their reservation phone number (from another country) and be put on hold for 20 minutes (so needless to say it was an expensive phone call)."
Pros: "Super nice crew!"
Cons: "Inaudible boarding"
Pros: "The price :)"
Cons: "Wasn't able to play the videos on my iPhone."
Pros: "North American flights are definitely not as comfortable as in Asian flights"
Cons: "No in flight entertainment"
Pros: "Crew was very friendly."
Cons: "Didn't realize AirCanada Rouge didn't have entertainment, which allowed me to get work done...but you know, movies are cool too. Also the seats are super close together and make it a bit clostrophobic."
Pros: "More comfortable but because we payed $200 to fly emergency exit"
Cons: "That we had to pay $200 for emergency exit"
Pros: "Good service"
Cons: "Nothing much for breakfast"
Pros: "Boarding was relatively painless. Flight was on time. What i didnt like was the crew. The flight from Toronto to Los Angeles was five hours. They had the fasten seat belts light on the entire trip because they said the turbulence was bad. I have been on alot of flights and let me tell you that the turbulence was not bad at all. After three hours prople decided enough was enough and started going to the restroom. The crew would get all bent out of shape and get on the PA yo please stay in your seats and not use the restrooms at this time. Really!! Well that didnt happen. The only thing they give you is one free drink. No penuts, cookies or pretzels. If you want food you have to pay for it. I sat by the window and my window was all greasy. I couldent really see out of it. I did use the rest room and it was pretty clean."
Cons: "Flight was on time and the restroom was clean"
Cons: "The plane was so uncomfortable. I could not fall asleep and there were lots of people laying down covering their entire body across the 3 seat middle section. I asked for complimentary wine and was refused my request. I do not like air canada rouge. Awful airline!"
Pros: "At least it was fast.."
Cons: "No space, no tv, no food, no music, no blanket, no water, nothing. Pack everything you need or bring your credit card"
Cons: "As expected with Air Canada, the service is awful with bitchy stewardesses, the food is poor, the plane is falling apart. Midway through the flight, the plane looked like a pigsty with garbage everywhere. When serving the meals, the stewardess just said to everyone, "You want it or not" and moved quickly with many people wondering why she was behaving so rudely. In addition, we couldn't get clear information about the baggage allowance. This is partially due to booking through Kayak where they don't tell you the baggage limit and some of the flights were code share flights even though all were with Air Canada. Couldn't tell if we had 1 or 2 bags included. This didn't help with our packing. In the end we had 2 bags and wish we bought more stuff."
Pros: "The Air Canada agents and staff were very helpful and accommodating to the best of their ability. I hugged one female AC Agent in TO as she was so kind and helpful, and told her she was the highlight of my day."
Cons: "The processing of Air Canada passengers to the connecting Gates and through Customs for USA international flights was a nightmare. It was very disorganized, with hundreds of passengers herded like cattle, poor communication, customs slips not provided on the AC Flight before landing so as to be completed in advance. There was staff shortage, and not done in a timely manner so as to make your connecting Flight. It has truly been a most stressful experience for me this and each time I have to go through Toronto to make a connecting flight , and I will avoid this flight plan in the future at all cost."
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "No leg room, was actually painfull"
Cons: "They over sold the flight. Customer service was awful and the gate attendant was untrained. We were unable to board the plane."
Cons: "No monitor available to follow route .Too long trip w/o any entertainment."
Pros: "Take off and landing"
Cons: "Non reclining seats for such a long flight. Very little leg room and indifference of flight crew."
Pros: "Crew very polite and professional."
Cons: "My luggage didn't arrive at destination, so this caused a bit of a problem for me as Philadelphia was not my final destination. I had to take a bus the next morning at 7AM to Pittsburgh. My luggage finally was delivered to me within 48 hours, so that was great."
Pros: "I was grateful to make it onto flight but no thanks to crew from first flight who should have radioed ahead that we were on our way and late due to air canada flight I was also glad that bags got onto flight"
Cons: "The food was awful! Dinner was barely ok and don't over advertise your "light breakfast." A cold piece of banna bread slapped down on my tray barely can be called a snack! The seats on the seemingly very old 767 were painfully uncomfortable. The 320 had better seating. And what entertainment?????"
Pros: "The price could not be beat and the leg room was decent."
Cons: "Food was pretty sad and we could not hook up out iPad to the entertainment options because we didn't download an app beforehand."
Pros: "We would have needed to download an app on our personal digital device and view entertainment that way. No screens in the plane."
Cons: "Poorest over seas flight ever been on. No tv's not even pretzels. Leg room is the worst I have ever had. Last time I flew over seas it was fabulous. Hours on a flight packed like sardines and no entertainment to speak of. No movie, no tv and no leg room. My husbands knees touched the back of seat in front. Breakfast was a slice of banana bread. Will never fly Air Canada again"
Pros: "Food was great. Inflight entertainment needs work."
Cons: "The inflight entertainment needs more updated options ."
Pros: "Absolutely nothing!!!!"
Cons: "You need to tell people what to expect on Air Canada Rogue - NEVER AGAIN!!"
Pros: "There is not one thing that was good about this flight. Bad plane, bad service, bad food. That sums it up. Will talk to as many travelers as I can to tell them to avoid this nightmare."
Cons: "No entertainment on board. No complimentary drinks. A piece of cold banana bread literally thrown on the tray for breakfast. Called the airline when reservation was made and told it would have entertainment and complimentary drinks. The switch to Rouge was a bait and switch. Rouge is from the 1970s. Long flights to sit and stare at the back of seat. Crowded seat at that. NEVER WILL FLY AIR CANADA AGAIN"
Cons: "I would like a flight map to follow the flight and have more information"
Pros: "The agent was able to seat is together from the pronating point through to our destination."
Cons: "Everything was explained"
Pros: "Crew was very helpful and polite, ensuring that the leg of our rerouted flight from Toronto to Frankfurt was comfortable."
Cons: "Not being able to complete my original itinerary as planned (see above)."
Pros: "There was nothing to like because I did not fly on Air Canada to Barcelona."
Cons: "For an unexplained reason, our first flight was delayed 45 plus minutes in Phoenix while cargo was moved from the forward cargo bay to the aft cargo bay. This caused us to miss our connection in Toronto. Air Canada then proceeded to rebook us on a flight leaving 2 days later. After an extended period of time, they finally rescheduled us for a flight to a different city in Europe and we had to catch another flight from there our final destination, Barcelona. The total additional travel time was extended by approximately 8 hours, causing us to lose the better part of our first day."
I booked and paid for my original flight with E-Dreams. Also made seat selections. Got an email a few days later saying my return flight had be cancelled?? Called E-Dreams and they said it was the airline that cancelled (Sato)? Told to rebook the return flight myself? Cost was double the original flight and was booking me on the same flight as I originally booked?? Called back, the agent agreed to cancel my flight to the Azores and AGREED to a full REFUND. The agent advised me to re-book the flight on my own. Did so and ended up with the EXACT same flights as originally booked?? Have only received a PARTIAL REFUND. Still out approximately $300 dollars?? Is this a SCAM. How do I get the remaining REFUND?? Regards, Brett Parry
Great crew. Food - meeeehhhh and the seats curve forward?
Cons: "Do not exit anymore"
Pros: "The flight was changed from 9:20pm to 4am. Then they bumped me to the next day because they oversold the flight. So I missed 1 1/2 days of my retreat."
Pros: "Nice crew"
Cons: "Lack of entertainment"
Cons: "They had us board from the front and the back of the plane, and a gridlock ensued in the middle with people trying to cross paths to get to their seat. When we landed, we sat on the runway for 20 minutes or so waiting for a gate. Customs/immigration in Boston was HORRIBLE, we waited in lines for over 90 minutes."
Pros: "Flight crew was very nice."
Cons: "Could not pick seats when buying tickets through website. Had to call airline separately, which we did. However, actual tickets that we received at airport were for different seats. Happened to another couple on our flight as well."
Pros: "The wine was very good"
Cons: "Business class isn’t super posh but still good"
Pros: "Flight from Sao Miguel was on time and arrival at Boston was also on time. The crew was friendly and professional. It would have been nice if the WiFi at the airport was faster so we could have loaded the WiFi app for on board entertainment, but somethings can’t always be accomplished."
Cons: "Expect major delays"
Cons: "Expect major delays ."
Pros: "Jetblue airplanes"
Cons: "I went to kayak.com to book a flight,kayak booked it threw flyus who booked thru sata aero..This was such a pain to deal with.My sata flight was delayed so much i Missed my connecting flight.Sata was closed so i had to get hotel room on my own accord.If I book thru kayak,kayak should be my contact,not the 3rd party.I wasted so much time and stresse. So much dealing with tracking down my info.For future travel I will consider other websites due to the complexity of your booking methods :/"
Pros: "Crew was very nice."
Cons: "Flight was delayed, but they never made an announcement so we were overcrowded in airport waiting area, many people standing up, not enough seats, and we were kept in the dark Felt like we were being held hostage. Instead of boarding by rows, they let everyone go through all at once which caused the aisle in plane to be blocked. No organization as far as boarding."
Pros: "IT WAS ON TIME"
Cons: "PACKED IN LIKE SARDINES"
Cons: "The flight was delayed - because they simply didn't have a plane- 90 min delay plus the additional time required to board 3 buses of passengers. I missed my connection in Boston, causing me to stay at the airport all night for a morning rebooking. The service counter workers said they were not required to help, they did not apologize either. I am not impressed , I will never fly this airline again."
Cons: "I think the through flight through Portugal should have been more transparent. Myself and many others did not know about this flight until arriving at the airport. Regarding entertainment, there was no movie or anything like this for the long flight."
Pros: "Horrible airline, worst service ever."
Cons: "Horrible! Would give zero stars if I could."
Pros: "Crew were lovely. Economy seats were pretty comfortable, with legroom. They allow one free checked item. Free food!"
Cons: "I ordered a vegan meal and got pasta with cheese. We were half an hour late taking off."
Pros: "I liked that they served a meal, was definitely more spacious seating and leg space, the crew was very helpful."
Cons: "I didn't like that when we arrived in Azores we were quarinitined to a space that could only be entered or left by passing Through security. So there were no bathrooms in the waiting area. I was randomly patted down along with a very small child and around half the other passengers. All they offered was water in the waiting machine. After all the waiting, we reboarded the same plane. They did not explain well what was going on."
Cons: "Delayed 4 hrs; boarding agent couldn't give any details (meanwhile me kids are screaming); seats were narrow and I couldn't lift the armrest up out of the way. Food was terrible. No entertainment visible from our seats and the headphones didn't work. Flight from BOS was much of the same. NEVER FLYING SATA AGAIN!"
Pros: "crew was nice and attentive. food wasn't too bad. seats were of decent size."
Cons: "very outdated- no inflight entertainment. interior felt old and used so slightly uncomfortable."
Pros: "Very helpful crew and airport staff made the task of clearing customs and making our connection very easy."
Cons: "No in-air entertainment - not a problem as long as you're aware beforehand. Just bring a tablet or magazines."
Cons: "We were delayed again"
Pros: "We read several bad reviews of Azores Airlines but our flight over to the islands and back to Boston was smooth riding and on time if not early. Our three interisland flights were also easy and on time, staff great."
Pros: "Asked for emergency seat, so space was not a problem. Temperature was cool. Seat uncomfortable."
Pros: "The flight was on time!"
Cons: "Seating is ridiculously tight!"
Pros: "Free food and drinks."
Cons: "Flight delayed and we got no information about why. Few updates and bad communication in general. Faced same problems on way to Sao Miguel - only that trio was delayed almost 20 hours. Will avoid that airline in the future if possible."
Pros: "Free wine with dinner. crew was attentive."
Cons: "had to walk a long way on the tarmac to get to the plane."
Pros: "I got there alive"
Cons: "Trying to be impartial on this review as it was my return trip that was a nightmare. I honestly just slept through the entire flight. It seems pretty obvious that SATA Has a monopoly on US flights to the Azores and they are making no effort to improve service."
Cons: "Long delay not on time"
Pros: "The flight was delayed for 2 hours. The movie was horrible. No ones speakers worked. Serive was fine"
Cons: "They lost my luggage."
Pros: "The flight crew was absolutely wonderful and very helpful with our 3-year-old son. He keeps asking to go on plane again because of how attentive they were and made his trip very enjoyable."
Cons: "No entertainment at all. The seats could have more recline as it was an overnight flight and nearly impossible to sleep. The trays for business class are so close that it is awkward and uncomfortable to use."
Pros: "Had two seats to myself. Hot breakfast."
Cons: "The airport in Lisbon was terrible. Got bussed 20 minutes to get to terminal and had to wait 2 hours in line to get through passport line. Could not find my bag, finally found it in a heap to the side. My friend traveling Air Canada had no trouble same day same time."
Pros: "The crew is very friendly and helpful."
Cons: "They crammed way too many seats into the planes; it's really awful if it's a full flight, and if you're claustrophobic or prefer space around you, forget it! When the guy in front of me reclined his seat, his head was practically in my lap. Some tray tables were broken. The planes seem old. But it's the only airline that flies to the Azores from the U.S., I believe, so this is the only option. They also very slow, and we left late to and from the Azores."
Cons: "The 12 hour delay without being told why. We would be told we would leave at a certain time and then it was cancelled, told a different time and it was cancelled, and told again, etc was suppose to be in Lisbon in the morning, arrived in Lisbon near midnight."
Cons: "The delay of over 12 hours was terrible. I'm sure most people will complain as everyone was furious. The staff didn't provide any guidance towards what the problem was or how long we could be waiting. Their communications were guesses at best."
Pros: "The flight left on time, flight attendants were friendly, some options on the TV (better than none)"
Cons: "Not much offered on the TV entertainment systems. The food was pretty bad. Otherwise the flight was fine."
Pros: "Crew was great!"
Cons: "Flight was freezing, departed late, baggage took 35+ mins to get to carousel :/"
Pros: "Price, friendly service"
Cons: "packed in like sardines"
Pros: "Price, friendly crew"
Cons: "jammed in and not too comfy seats"
Pros: "Earlier TAP flight was late and caused me to miss my connecting flights."
Cons: "Flight was cancelled because TAP flight was 2 hours late in picking me up."
Pros: "I like the fact that I sat in a row four seats and nobody was in that row so I got to lay down"
Cons: "The entertainment was horrible they had one movie showing and it was like six rows ahead of me hard to see"
Pros: "Great price"
Cons: "No on flight entertainment, bare bones plane, very disappointing overall."
Pros: "The friendly staff and free food and drink."
Cons: "There was no entertainment."
Pros: "I liked the crew and their politeness."
Cons: "No entertainment and the seat wasn't close enough to the window."
Cons: "We were boarded on a plane that was hot like an oven!!! There was no AC, not even a fan. I felt like in sauna!!! We were told that the AC can only be turned on after the engines start. We were waiting on a plane in this incredible heat for about 40min after which we were told to go back on a bus and back to the terminal. After another hour we were put back on the same "oven" plane. By the time the AC started working another 40 passed even though this time the engines were started shorty after boarding."
