Airline reviews

Pros: "The aircraft was barely half full."
Cons: "Delay due to fog at LHR, but this is not the fault of the airline"

Pros: "Flight departed on time. Crew were friendly and efficient"
Cons: "Boarding seem to be chaotic, no boarding by group or seat number."

Pros: "-"
Cons: "Will never use Lufthansa again"

Pros: "As previously stated hated having to go through security again"
Cons: "Chocolate"

Cons: "Well,my whole trip was an adventure! Problem with my checked in bag, so i had to pay 22 pounds extra to fit it in a connection flight and now i have to send receipt to get the refund. On my way back, there was a delay, so i missed the flight and the checked in bag"

Pros: "The crew was friendly. The seating was ok but dirty floors"

Pros: "Very Organised and punctual"

Pros: "Everything except delay"
Cons: "Nil"

Pros: "Crew very friendly"
Cons: "Lufthansa continuosly treats repeat customers like milk cows. The new ‘light fare’ is a genius way to charge the same as before with ZERO customer support."

Pros: "It was not immediately apparent that boarding was in a completely different terminal which was accessible by train, so this lack of info could have cost me arriving in good time as I thought I had sufficient time. I aldo found ground staff at the customer service desk very unsympathetic and unhelpful when I asked for assistance on grounds of ill health. They were quite condescending ."
Cons: "Ground staff poor customer service"

Cons: "Everything"

Pros: "The food was really good! I don’t expect much from airlines but I feel like I got a real meal on board (two of them!)"
Cons: "We were delayed taking off and there were three screaming babies, but there’s only so much they can do about that."

Pros: "Very friendly crew, great seats in economy with lots of legroom."

Pros: "Evrything"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "The flight was adequate."
Cons: "Sandwich was extremely unappetising and there were no hot drinks. The worst thing was that in transiting from the SAA flight to the Lufthansa flight we were obliged to go through security which seems unnecessary. The security staff were awful. Bullying, rude and totally unsympathetic to the fact that having brought water from the first plane to the second plane we had to either drink it or throw it away. One guy in particular, a tall greying man evoked the worst stereotypes of brutal secret policemen. Perhaps he formerly worked for Stasi or he was having testosterone problems. Totally unacceptable behaviour."

Cons: "1hr 20 minutes late"

Pros: "great over all experiance. Don't let the other negative reviews put you off"

Pros: "The Lufthansa app provides updates on plane status and gate number, etc."
Cons: "N/a"

Pros: "All"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Did manage to get priority transfer which I requested from Dubrovnik but was told. “We do not do those”"
Cons: "Rest of the flight was bearable nothing write about. Typical cheap alow cost flight"

Pros: "Ok"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Flying for funeral and they changed my destination from 2 flights to 3 because of a 3hr delay. Nobody cares about your wellbeing"

Pros: "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: "See above"

Pros: "The crew was wonderful and this is consistent with my previous experiences with Lufthansa. The salami sandwich provided was actually very good."
Cons: "The slimline seats were not very comfortable. I would hesitate to fly Lufthansa's narrow bodies for flights greater than 2 hours."

Pros: "The flights were on time, we made a 1 hr 5 min connection with no fluster. Dinner was one of the best airplane meals, breakfast a little less so"

Cons: "Absolutely perfect."

Pros: "Great service. Friendly and accommodating."
Cons: "I don’t like the configuration of the biz class seats. They are in a row vs in pods. Not as private as other configurations."

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 on time scheduled departure"
Cons: "the long complicated walk to terminal"

Pros: "All the staff were friendly and the complimentary food and drink snacks was lovely."
Cons: "Our flights were delayed both on the way there and back"

Pros: "DID NOT LIKE MY LUGGAGE GOING MISSING! IT'S STILL MISSING AND, AFTER RECEIVING PROMISES OF DELIVERY TODAY, THERE IS NOW NO RECORD OF MY LUGGAGE!"
Cons: "DID NOT LIKE MY LUGGAGE GOING MISSING. IT'S STILL MISSING AND, AFTER RECEIVING PROMISES OF DELIVERY TODAY, THERE IS NOW NO RECORD OF MY LUGGAGE!"

Pros: "The seats and space was ok. Exit from the plane was directly opposite the passport machines and the exit."
Cons: "The flight was very late leaving meaning I arrived in London over an hour late! With knock on problems!"

Pros: "Usual good service for economy class on this airline"

Cons: "Refusal to board as our flight was a few minutes landing"

Cons: "None of the flights arrived on schedule. That caused other problems. Overall the trip was terrible. Not sure if I will fly lufthansa again nor recommen."

Pros: "Darned site more comfortable than the first leg of the journey."
Cons: "Tell your passengers they need hiking boots to get from main concourse to B terminal!"

Pros: "Same as above."
Cons: "Same as above."

Pros: "Staff was very friendly and caring."
Cons: "No entertainment and half sandwich with some cookies was the only food we got."

Cons: "N/A"

Pros: "They held the gate for us as we got there about 14 minutes before departure."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Delay"

Cons: "Where to begin? During the booking process, there was no indication my travel partner and I would be flying Air Canada, and not Lufthansa. We were seated in the last row of the plane with painfully little legroom — even for two women of relatively small stature. The plane was not equipped with modern conveniences of operational wifi, music, or any other means of entertainment over the ten-hour flight. We were nearly an hour late to depart, but were unable to hear anything over the speakers regarding the cause for the delay, nor could we hear any of the flight attendants' safety instructions. What we could hear, however, was the surprisingly loud and nearly constant DINNNGGGG of the passengers' call buttons as they summoned the flight attendants. Because the flight was an overnighter, we attempted to sleep, but it was nearly impossible to do so due to the noise. I had earplugs in and could still hear the chimes, which were positioned right above our seats and made for an unpleasant experience and cranky travelers. The food was subpar as expected, but it would've been nice to be surprised with something resembling a fresh piece of fruit or vegetable. The flight crew was polite and one of the attendants took pity on us and offered a complimentary shot of whiskey, which partially alleviated the discomfort of the experience. That man is a saint and we surely hope he is better taken care of by this airline than we were. Overall a miserable experience. Will definitely rethink flying both Lufthansa and Air Canada in the future."

Pros: "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: "787 seat spacing (a UA plane, not LH)"
Cons: "Took first available train , arr. Freising at 9:50. Arrived at Terminal 2 by bus ca. 10:25. I am handicapped and a slow walker, so I got to departure floor ca. `10:40. Waited in line at self-serve check-in; found out that it does not have ability to process numbers (for US address). Attendant was not helpful and nasty. She told me me to go to the regular check-in line, where I waited another 45 minutes. None of the 3 "help" personnel standing around when approached managed to tell me that there was a special counter for handicapped persons. The one at the express self-check-in refused to give me her lasst name or any form of ID (first name Sophia). After waiting an additional 15 minutes for a wheelchair, I was deposited in a waiting area, where a second wheelchair arrived after another long wait. Told me I might not make the plan (I did). Overall a very unpleasant and nasty experience. With the exception of the very nice lady (Mrs. Ilser?? ) who checked in my luggage, none of the other 3 persons at the express and regular check-in spoke decent German or English, and none was helpful (Go there, wait!!!) Barely made the plane in MUC, Heathrow turned out much better than the touted German efficiency. Please forward to Lufthansa customer relations. Dr. W. Hartwig"

Pros: "Check in process was simple and efficient. The crew on the plane were polite and friendly. Flight arrived early."
Cons: "Boarding was a little chaotic. The sandwiches offered were extremely dry."

Pros: "We got there"
Cons: "Had to get a replacement plane when the first one had issues."

Pros: "when you enter Canada and then travel through YVR for another flight it is a total waste. Not the fault of the airline but the way they do things with security"

Pros: "Apart from the boarding process the trip was great."
Cons: "The airport had us board at a gate where we had to go outside in the rain without any warning. Many of the pasengers were families with small children and dressed for the sunshine and no coats or other protection from the elements. There was no warning from WestJet or the airport in the process from booking to checkin."

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: "Quick and convenient"
Cons: "Comfort and food was lacking"

Pros: "Pleasant staff"
Cons: "People get shocked from the rush of air soon after they board and close their air knobs overhead. The cabin was filled with lots of new bodies that had different ordour and perfume that it was good to have a strong ventilation but due to the strong air flow... Perhaps tell ppl to keep it open."

Cons: "I wasn’t able to choose a seat"

Pros: "Fast efficient process through security. Well labeled and helpful airport staff. Plane wasn’t very full. Had a row to myself which was great. Entertainment available on smartphone, iPad or lap top."
Cons: "Really fast connection. 20 minutes from landing from LAX to clear customs and find connection before boarding call. Not much menu options for purchase and too quick a connection to buy anything. Luckily I travel with snacks."

Cons: "Like all airlines it would be nice if there was an extra inch between the seats. Also, unfortunately the video wasn't working."

Cons: "The quality of the video streaming was really low. It was disappointing."

Pros: "Yes"
Cons: "Did not serve food."

Pros: "I did not make it on the flight as the time was given was 5:35 and the flight left at 4:00."
Cons: "I was not given correct information and being a very novice traveller did not check the information."

Pros: "Gavin at check in was so great!! Amazing and professional!! Great clear concise announcements!"

Pros: "Service was very good."
Cons: "Nothing."

Cons: "I wish there were more food options"

Pros: "Comfort, timing. Customer Service!"
Cons: "Technically problems with lightning on board."

Pros: "i was pretty comfortable being in an aisle seat"
Cons: "didn’t love the lights coming on in the middle of the night"

Pros: "price efficiency"
Cons: "gate change last minute"

Cons: "Way too cramped. Only 1 washroom."

Pros: "Smooth trip."
Cons: "No one would get a wheelchair to get to cart that was on different floor. Driver didn't volunteer to carry bags to cart."

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."

Cons: "Booked our seats 24 hours in advance and could not get seats together. Airline expects us to pay extra for reasonable expectations as that"

Pros: "Talia is an excellent stewardess—She takes good care of people"

Pros: "The low cost"
Cons: "That which comes with low cost, you get what you pay for"

Cons: "24 hour delay in Calgary because of maintenance problems with the plane. Meant I lost one precious day while visiting my 91 year old mother."

Cons: "Woman in seat beside should have taken 2 seats"

Pros: "New plane was nice."
Cons: "Snacks offered"

Cons: "Delay"

Pros: "Staff was good"

Pros: "Comfortable seats"
Cons: "Late departure"

Pros: "Some of the people who helped with wheelchair assistance for my dad were kind."
Cons: "1. I previously asked for wheelchair assistance for my father and when we dropped off our bags the agent said she would get someone and told us to sit in the waiting area. After five minutes no one came so I went to the assistance desk and they said they hadn't been informed so they sent someone right away. If I hadn't been there to ask, I don't know how long my mom and dad would have sat there. 2. The man who wheeled my dad to the gate was very nice and he said he arranged for all of us to sit together, which was nice because I wasn't able to sit with my parents since we weren't able to choose the same row when we booked. When we boarded, we found out that the seats hadn't been changed, and the person who previously booked the seat beside my parents refused to move so I sat in the row beside them. These problems were minor but they highlighted a lack of communication between staff and the attendant dealing with us wasn't the most friendly either. I used to fly westjet in the early days when I still lived in Canada and I've noticed that the level of service has gone down. Thank you for allowing me the opportunity and space to comment. Asunción Perez"

Pros: "Staff and aervice was great! No complaint!"
Cons: "We had to put our carry on bags a little far away from our seats"

Pros: "I just love WestJet"

Pros: "Free upgrade and gate check!"
Cons: "No checked bags or meals for economy passengers"

Pros: "Landed 10 minutes early. Good landing in tough conditions"

Pros: "Basics of chips or pretzels as one food offering"

Pros: "Friendly, polite crew. Well organized boarding"

Pros: "I upgraded and that was definitely worth it."
Cons: "I don't like 2.5 hour flights in general. Just long enough to be annoying. But that has nothing to do with you and your airline."

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."

Cons: "Not one complaint"

Cons: "Got there 2 minutes after check in closed and wouldn't let us fly"

Pros: "the entertainment system was incredible."
Cons: "It was a very long flight-- including a meal in the ticket would have made it more enjoyable."

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"

Pros: "Boarding was quick and easy, and the gate attendant was quite friendly."
Cons: "Very rude crew members; delay leaving YVR. Instead of being honest and upfront about having to leave an HOUR later--and also lying by saying that we'd be flying into Gatwick in only 8.5 hours as opposed to 9.5--they made us wait in our seats while the craft supposedly waited for food to be loaded. The best line was, "Our plane will be landed an hour earlier! But because London doesn't like it when we land early, we're going to wait here for a while on the tarmac so we make it there on time.""

Pros: "Low cost, supportive seating"
Cons: "Meals are extra Arrived a bit early and had to wait about 15 min for someone to attach the gate"

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: "Crew were really nice and good entertainment."
Cons: "Paying for food and alcohol was a bit of a downer."

Pros: "I had never heard of WestJet and only booked the flight because it was the least expensive ticket I could find. I was shocked when I was given my boarding pass because I got a first class seat. A comfortable seat is such a blessing on an overnight flight because you can sleep fairly comfortably. Also, the food and especially the wine were excellent. The flight attendants were very courteous and helpful. I would recommend WestJet to anyone."

Pros: "Nice Staff. Easy process."

Cons: "Finnair are hellbent on trying to sell goods and continuously interrupt the movies with their confounded announcements every 15 minutes very annoying. If i wanted to buy something its in their mag and as a regional flight it should include some form of nourishment other than juice or coffee one off, tight fisted and not a descent selection of food either"

Cons: "- Leave in time - Working onboard entertainment system"

Pros: "I liked the window seat."
Cons: "They didn’t talk much about the landing card."

Pros: "The crew was great!"

Pros: "Speed boarding process."
Cons: "No entertainment system on a 3 hour flight..."

Pros: "Service, staff, food and beverages all excellent"
Cons: "Seat was just a little hard when lying on my side"

Pros: "Everything went smoothly"

Pros: "Arrived ahead of time Crue"
Cons: "Sales on board"

Pros: "The accommodations made me feel like I was in first class!"
Cons: "The screaming child behind me ):"

Pros: "Excellent"

Pros: "Breakfast was good"
Cons: "Air conditioning was blasting down on me too powerfully"

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: "Nothing!!"

Pros: "Good flight, really good new A380 aircraft, smooth nearly all the way, usual small seating space as on All airlines"
Cons: "Routine airline food."

Pros: "the price was very good"

Pros: "Good"
Cons: "Breakfast"

Cons: "Experienced very rude cabin crew"

Pros: "The energy of the crew was upbeat despite the lock of enertainment they tried their best by accommodating my various wishes."
Cons: "They were no snacks available except the ones that we had to pay for - which in fact I thought was a bit pretentious towards the passengers."

Pros: "It was not Finnair it was all British airways."

Cons: "When I arrived to board my flight I was highly unsatisfied with the excessive charges I received for my luggage that was overweight (only by 7 pounds). I was not only charged an additional $100 for my second checked bag, but I was also charged $200 for the extra weight. As a college student traveling abroad for 6 months, I did not expect to be bombarded with these fees at the beginning of my journey. Due to this experience, I would like to have been notified ahead of time of the expected charges as it made me uneasy before a long flight."

Cons: "BA lost my baggage. The sandwich they offered was uneatable. Marshall Hoffman"

Pros: "Crew, boarding, cleanliness of the plan, and all other aspects other than food were good/excellent."
Cons: "The vegetables in the meal / salad were still frozen….inedible. In the morning in the asian vegetarian meal it was simply fruit…that was it. No protein source. I have been on many BA flights and the food has not been this poor, so not sure if the carrier who services food source has changed."

Cons: "Need wifi to work. Highly dissapointed that BRITISH air doesn't have this feature. Most airlines do!!"

Cons: "There was a very poor selection of movies to watch:( Last tim ei flew AA, and there was an absolutely huge choice . . . Would love to see that improved . . I think you have to cater for all tastes . . . and that definitely was not the case on my flight"

Pros: "Checking and boarding was lighting fast"
Cons: "There was a bit of a delay, which was due to weather and certainly not their fault. They kept us informed"

Pros: "For once the seats have enough space. Airlines think we are cattle and that they can pack as much as possible every airplane. For once I was glad to have a confortable experience."

Cons: "Our bag was not checked through to our final destination and was delivered a day later."

Pros: "Good leg room."
Cons: "I paid an extra $90 to pick this seat. On the website it looked like an exit row seat with lots of room. However I couldn't really move out of my seat without climbing over others. It was a waste of $90."

Pros: "Nice one"
Cons: "Nice one"

Pros: "easy - no surprises"

Pros: "Everything else"
Cons: "Both the British Airways attendant who check me in in Chicago, and the British Airways attendant who checked me in in London, were not paying attention to my final destination and did not mark my luggage for my final destination."

Pros: "I have a BA - Gold card- BA lounge was good."
Cons: "Comfort- Plans are Old, Entertainments is Worst. BAD BAD BAD."

Cons: "When I arrived at CMI no ticket was issued for my second leg, so I could not use the internal transit bus to at Terminal 5 at ORD ("for ticketed passengers only). I had to exit use the external train (which was delayed) and go through the very slow Terminal 5 security. Almost missed my ORD-LHR flight (arrived at the gate after the official closing time)"

Pros: "Head phone jack was not working in my seat."

Cons: "Trying to get through airport security was an unorganized clown show with them herding groups of passengers back and forth between airport terminals resulting in many people almost missing their flights because the lines just weren't moving. Once on the airplane, the international flight had TVs in the ceiling in the row playing one in-flight movie (what is this 1995?). American is such a terrible airline. The old US airways, Lufthansa, and British Airways, are way better international flights every time I've flown with them. Personal entertainment at your seat for each flight (i thought this was standard on all international flights in the past like 10 years) and more food and drinks throughout the flight."

Pros: "And perfectly on time!"

Pros: "Accuracy Staff Serving"
Cons: "My name was wrongly written on the passanger list."

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: "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: "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: "First time across the Atlantic, and the British/French crew was the most polite crew ever."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Cramped, cold,"

Pros: "Seats are snug. You get to know your neighbors really well."

Pros: "Nothing"
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: "A Good Deal,but when.we arrived in Miami there was not any finner counter,when to BA anf6 then we found the flight"

Pros: "direct flight"
Cons: "There was a lack of air and no possibility for individual airing your seat, during our flight we had to stand in the back because we were almost passing out of overheating 30 Celsius plus heat in our row. We asked for a cooler temperature and only the last 20 minutes it started cooling but then to ice cold. My audio was not working properly, at max it was still unclear. We have had better flight experiences."

Cons: "Seats on the Dreamliner seemed cramped and too close together."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Tiny seats. Wouldn't let me pay for an upgrade. Last time I ever use kayak"

Pros: "Great flight"
Cons: "N/A"

Pros: "The crew was great"
Cons: "The disappointing issues were with the airport process."

Pros: "Todo no ay espera. Y muy amable todo el perpersonal que trabaja ahi"
Cons: "No tengo ninguna queja"

Pros: "see previous comments"
Cons: "see previous comments"

Pros: "This is what an airline should be like in the US - 1 bag checked without fees, food - snacks and light meal (even on short flights), LEG ROOM, reasonable airfares. Thankfully I live near a Canadian airport. Greedy US airlines with its no-service-unless-you-pay could take a lesson."
Cons: "I am completely satisfied with the airline and its services."

Pros: "Crew nice."
Cons: "Check in very long. Boarding slow. Check in our carry-on’s even though there was plebty if room in the plane"

Pros: "Comfortable plane."
Cons: "Boarding, it was organized chaos with having to show your passport verification then get in another line to board."

Pros: "Crew pleasant & food good"
Cons: "Seats not very comfortable or adjustable"

Pros: "The flight was fast and with no delays"
Cons: "They charged me extra 14 USD for checking in, I had never being charged extra for that."

Cons: "24hrs in advance, the flight was delayed over 6hrs"

Pros: "The flight from Vancouver to Mexico by Aeromexico was cancelled. I was assigned a different flight at 6am the next morning and we could not board in the last minute when we were at the door (it looks like the flight was overbooked)... Finally we are in Lima but our luggage is lost."
Cons: "Please let me know what can we do.. Is there any kind of compensation we are entitled to after going through all this..."

Cons: "I got singled out by a staff member to request me to check my bag while the passenger behind me had a bigger carry on bag. My other 2 friends had carry on backpacks about the same size as well but they didn't get stopped. I didn't know why I got picked on."

Cons: "Very happy, excellent!!"

Pros: "Early arrival."
Cons: "Tedious check in with camera.. Snack not great. Aeromexico Changed my seat without prior notification. Boarding pass did not reflect change until I boarded. Miss the individual screens for entertainment center to watch movies."

Pros: "I enjoyed it"
Cons: "Good overall service"

Cons: "Food is baad"

Cons: "The flight was oversold and my daughter and I couldn't check in online and or seats were given away. We were sent to a hotel far from the airport."

Pros: "On time. Good entertainment"
Cons: "Food too salty"

Pros: "Flight on time"
Cons: "Entertainment didnt have"

Pros: "I like the staff, the seats, the entertainment"

Cons: "I had to pay $286 extra for two extra luggage. I was the impression that Aeromexico would charge $100 pesos for every extra luggage."

Pros: "Entertainment options"
Cons: "No announcements for landing. I usually wouldn't complain about arriving early but my shuttle was not available for two hours so the early arrival added that time to my wait time."

Pros: "Overall great experience."

Cons: "There was plenty of overhead space on the plane when I boarded yet i was forced to check my bag at the gate. Delayed me by at least 15 mins."

Cons: "The person in Aeromexico balcony didn't have training to attend clientes in the best way. She didn't know how to add miles to my number of fidelity and she told me that she can't change my seat to the aisle, because the sistem was not working and her english was very poor too... Very poor service."

Pros: "Mileage was credited to my account of SKY TEAM immediately. Many movies are available."
Cons: "A staff on the check-in counter requested me to show eTA of Canada. I tried to log in my e-mail account that received the eTA before. But IP address was Peru. So the e-mail service provider didn't allow me to log in. I suffered from proving that I received eTA. I had to spend much time on collecting and showing all the itineraries related to Vancouver. So I could never visit the VIP Lounge for Business Class passengers because of insufficient time.I had to go to the gate directly to avoid my flight. It was very hard time."

Pros: "Seat was good."
Cons: "No snack. No food offered during the flight. Only juice and water offered during more than 5 hours of the business class flight. Strange smell continued during the flight. The simplest service in my experiences of Business class flights in the world."

Pros: "We missed our flight to Bogota because Immigration was so understaffed. They were warned by Aero Mexico the day prior but chose to do nothing. Now we are having to pay for a second hotel and second flight from BOGOTA to Barranquilla. There are a lot of very angry and disappointed travelers today. We have been offered nothing and received nothing. And we loose another day of Carnivale. I won't be flying through Mexico city anytime soon. Kerry Greenlees"

Pros: "Well organized boarding and time efficient"
Cons: "Food mediocre"

Pros: "Conforto das poltronas. Mesmo na area mais simples."
Cons: "Comida, pois nao da pra comer feijao preto no cafe da manha junto com omelete, sistema de entretenimento que nao funcionou por quase 3hs. A equipe tambem parecia nao querer atender os passageiros."

Pros: "Everything was great thanks"

Pros: "nothing"
Cons: "2 1/2 hour wait in line to check in. then had to rush to gate to make it 10 minutes before take off. Charged us $50 for I am not sure what. Only had 2 carry on bags Had reserved earlier seats but was not honored. Sat in last row on plane next to bathrooms. I will never take this f....n airlines again. Rather pay more or be inconvenienced than deal with this incompetent, greedy so called airlines."

Pros: "Excelent"

Cons: "I had to keep all of my luggage with me for a 23 hour lay over"

Pros: "Nice plane"
Cons: "Delay, gate change, reissue of boarding pass. It was confusing. Mostly airport issues, not Aeromexico."

Cons: "The flight was delayed over 2 and a half hours, missed our connecting flight in Mexico City. The in flight entertainment stopped working half way through the flight, didn’t work again. Bad customer service, didn’t even apologize"

Cons: "Aeromexico truly is the worst airline on the planet. I travel all the time and I am the type of person who never complains. Six months ago when I came to Mexico and my daughter’s fiancé died of a heart attack they gave me the worst service of my life. And now again today they’re completely 100% at fault for me missing my flight. I was seven hours at the airport waiting for the flight and they didn’t post it on the boards. They never put a gate up. Other people also missed the flight. They offered no compensation, they wouldn’t pay for a hotel or a shuttle, absolutely reprehensible. Do not do business with this company"

Pros: "The lights went out so you could sleep"
Cons: "The check In process took an hour for no reason. I can only assume the staff were new because everyone who went on strike recently got fired or quit. That or they were on permanent siesta because the line ups weren’t even long. They were just slow, lazy and lacked knowledge."

Pros: "None of the food was likable."
Cons: "The main meal was terrible...sticky pasta with little to no taste. A bun that tasted like it sat out a day on the table. No butter, no salt, no pepper. And pudding with both meals? yuck!"

Pros: "liked the seat and the space. a blanket provided without asking"

Cons: "eveything was bad"

Pros: "They serve free food, and their se vice was really good."
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Good entertainment Good crew"
Cons: "They should not advertise hot breakfast, I was not able to tell what they served,wether it was cereal or scrambled eggs,green leaf substance was not edible. Coffee was cool coloured water. I ate the fruit and yogurt only Passengers should be warned about the poor food,so that they can get something before boarding."

Pros: "Boarding was fast and in order"
Cons: "Flight was delayed,no information until it was late to get other flights."

Pros: "People in Mexico are very nice."
Cons: "The Mexico DF airport us very crowded and you will be delayed. Avoid it if you can."

Pros: "In this day and age when Airlines are making you pay for every little thing; we were pleasantly surprised by the wonderful service and attention to the customer Aeromexico still gives to each customer."
Cons: "Nothing - we loved our whole experience."

Cons: "They cancelled our flight, sent us to another flight, downgrade included since we had to go in tourist even we pay business. Our original Vancouver flight was also delayed for 3 hours, they could put us in another airline but simply did no d anything even we asked for that. At the end, they did not know hate in México, airport screens si done thing, airiline information was another thing."

Pros: "Price! And aervife"
Cons: "La aerolinea nondeja documentar ni una maleta en viaje internacionaybesones fuera de lanley ybdijeron q estan amparadoos a esa ley"

Pros: "Not anything stood out."
Cons: "It was the WORST FOOD I've ever had period. The beer was warm and in short supply. I resorted to drinking to ease the misery of the flight."

Pros: "I have accommodations paid after having my flight canceled."
Cons: "Lack of organization and information which caused delays to passengers after having the flight canceled."

Cons: "Gate assignment was not released until 15 minutes before flight. Flight was delayed one hour. Then it was delayed on run way 45 minutes."

Pros: "Good crew and a smooth flight"
Cons: "Loudspeaker system lousy, could not hear any announcement from cocpit nor cabin crew about safety or flight progress"

Pros: "Crew nice and courteous"
Cons: "More comfy Seats, with non conflicting armrests"

Pros: "Really comfortable plane"
Cons: "Slow boarding"

Pros: "The crew was excellent and the seat room is generous compared to some Canadian airlines."
Cons: "Can't comment on the food as none was paid for"

Pros: "Flight crew was very friendly and helpful. Great service. User friendly website for check-in. Efficient boarding/de-planing and transfers at Reykjavik airport for my connecting flight to London. Luggage was checked in San Francisco through to London. Lots of legroom. Fabulous Gin menu."
Cons: "No charge for baggage. Food choices were limited and a bit disappointing."

Pros: "Connection gate in Rekyaveck wa. Sry convenient"
Cons: "Seat comfort for a new plane was terrible"

Cons: "When booking I was certain I booked checked luggage, when I got there it wasn't included, I never received a proper receipt. Boarding was delayed fit 40mins and not communicated"

Pros: "I like the pillow and blanket."
Cons: "The boarding process is not well organized compared to other airlines. Passengers should get a bottle water every flight."

Pros: "First flight to Iceland was 7.5-8 hours long, and no meal were provided! There’s only refreshments. It’s over dinner time god sake and long hours."
Cons: "Let’s passenger know there’s no meal provided in advance. They can atleast grab something at the airport or pack some snacks"

Cons: "Very limited food choice."

Pros: "Nice crew, good in flight entertainment options, food and drink options are good but expensive"
Cons: "One of the most cramped and uncomfortable flying experiences I've ever had. My whole body was sore afterwards. Also, boarding was a mess with changed seats, not enough employees at the gate, and dozens of passengers crammed into a weird pre boarding area."

Cons: "Our plane was broken. Initially they said an hour late and then the time before our flight increased. Because our flight was delayed, I missed I missed an important meeting."

Cons: "Seat uncomfortable"

Pros: "Flight itself was fine."
Cons: "Reykjavik Airport is a joke. Totally disorganized. Not enough seats to sit in and wait. Many passengers were sitting on the floor. Extremely long lines for people waiting to board their flights. Mass confusion. Food court required people to show their boarding passes in order to purchase food. People learned this after they got up to the cash register to pay for their food. Again, huge confusion. Ridiculous way to treat people."

Pros: "The planes were clean and reasonably on time."
Cons: "No meals or even beverages were served us despite their explicit promises to the contrary..The plane changing procedure in Reykjavik was chaotic, with no formed lines, virtually no posted information and no airline or airport personnel to help. It was disgraceful!"

Cons: "Seats in business class are uncomfortable. Passenger loading was abyssmal: no advantage -rather a disadvantage - to "boarding" first, the trurh is that we had to wait standing for a bus."

Pros: "Bottle of water at boarding"
Cons: "Crew from denver to Reykjavík were rude. My wife and I travel regularly for business and these girls were short, annoyed and just unprofessional. Couple that with the plane being abnormally hot (for the whole flight) it was pretty bad. I understand it must be hard to work in this industry, but these girls were just plain bad. Probably won’t fly Iceland Air again."

Pros: "The price."
Cons: "The room between rows and the very narrow seats. I’m a tiny person and I barely fit in the seat. I can’t imagine an average sized person managing for a long flight."

Pros: "The opportunity to check in on line thanks to you Kayak"

Pros: "Exceptional flight crew and we had a smooth flight. It was my daughter's first flight and she loved it as well."

Cons: "See above."

Pros: "Flight was safe and comfortable. Luggage was kept in good order and the flight arrived on time in London."

Pros: "The plane, crew, and entertainment."

Pros: "See Above"
Cons: "See Above"

Pros: "Liked the in flight entertainment."
Cons: "More food options would be nice."

Pros: "There was a bar within site of Gate 32/34, so if you could find a seat there you could enjoy a pint while you waited. Again, the crew was a delight. Thank you for keeping those warm and tasty!!"
Cons: "The communication was terrible for the boarding process so people lined up for the two, gate 32 and gate 34, at the same time. The lines were extremely long and they crossed so passengers got very confused, asking each other if they were in the right line and if the boarding process had started. It was a complete cluster."

Pros: "I was able to get a good seat just behind the first class section."
Cons: "There's no free food . They should give at least snacks like sandwiches, peanuts, etc."

Pros: "The flight was cancelled worst experience ever."
Cons: "The horrible customer service. They cancelled our flight and I missed my trip to Iceland. They also gave out a non working number."

Pros: "In flight crew were friendly and efficient Good service"
Cons: "Poor ground operations - too popular for their own good. Late flight, terrible boarding process, no communication"

Cons: "Landing was terrible ."

Pros: "Easy flight"

Cons: "The seating assignments and boarding process were excruciating. almost worth looking into a different airline even though everything else was fine."

Pros: "Price"
Cons: "On a long fliggght"

Pros: "Seating was adequate and comfortable enough."
Cons: "Flight was delayed, but not shown as late on monitors. I only knew because I checked online. Once on board the plane, I heard that the incoming plane had been delayed, but there was never any announcement made prior to that. Surprised that I had to pay for food on flight, given the lateness and inconvenience of delay, plus what was available was very expensive."

Pros: "Free movies"
Cons: "Not enough overhead bin space, no food, only a small drink"

Cons: "Included in previous comment"

Pros: "We didn't crash"
Cons: "No food :( Was delayed, then had to switch planes out in the tarmac :( It was cold :("

Pros: "The flight was fine, the crew was great. The only issue was it took almost 2 hours for our luggage to come out at Heathrow, the entire flight was waiting and there was no one from Icelandair to ask to neither did they send anyone to tell what the delay was."

Pros: "The Aurora lights on the overhead compartments was a pleasant touch."

Pros: "The crew, amenities, and service were great!"
Cons: "Didn't enjoy having to be transported to the train by bus in Reykjavik, since there wasn't a jet bridge connecting the departure level of the terminal to the plane."

Pros: "We really loved the price and the service was fine. Having the stopover in Iceland on our way to England was a treat and the schedule was fine."
Cons: "Bugged me that they charged for a meal on an intercontinental flight."

Pros: "Good crew, plane and flight all around. I have no complaints about the actual flight."
Cons: "When boarding, no announcements were made. One moment I was waiting to hear when we would be boarding, then next thing I know there is a mile long line at the gate. Very weird."

Pros: "Crew were polite, though they didn't hand pillows and blankets out to everyone. I declined a blanket, since I had one from the first flight, but was never offered a pillow, which I would have accepted. The style of this plane provided a ton of head space, which was really nice."
Cons: "The seats were really uncomfortable for such a long flight. Also, the entertainment system was having trouble for half the flight before they finally fixed it."

Pros: "Same as above."
Cons: "Nothing, I enjoyed the flight."

Pros: "Smooth Flight"
Cons: "Did not get the seating as portrayed on Icelandair website.We were seated in 2 tight seats abreast next to window. Food selection was limited to a baguette with one thin slice of ham. However, my motivation to pay up for economy comfort was for the seats. I will be seeking a credit."

Pros: "Loved the Saga Lounge - that was a great treat for us, as we were unaware that it was available to comfort economy passengers until we were informed at check in."

Pros: "Peaceful and smooth until the landing."
Cons: "Landing quite rough."

Pros: "Very pleasant crew."
Cons: "1 of my bags was delayed accidentally."

Pros: "The 2nd flight waited for the delayed flight from NY which was much appreciated."

Cons: "Arrived 10 hours late, lost luggage."
