And again, the flight was late and made for tight connections. The seating was comfortable ONLY because we had one of the few empty seats next to us. When the plane is full, as they mostly are right now, the seats are simply absurdly uncomfortable. Dangerously so, since I have a bad knee and I have trouble walking for a few days after a long flight given the inability to stretch or even move much in the current air regime.
They ask for electronic vaccination status to be downloaded but then they ask to see it again!!! Whats the point of downloading?? Also economy class was allowed to board through business and were not told to go to a different line
So now even with a 200€ flight you get only water and a piece of chocolate, no more food. Aircraft was 30 minutes late and no information on connection flights.
Contra: "The ife screen was extremely slow and unresponsive."
Pro: "Flight attendant warm, courteous and authoritative at same time."
Contra: "Seat hard. Space tight. I am 6’4”"
Pro: "Nearly all Flights on time"
Contra: "Better, cleaner seats. Poor movie selection and nott to mention terrible food."
Pro: "Comfortable seating, good food served by this airline"
Contra: "The woman seated next to me had the worst body odor ever and this was a 10 hour flight-nearly brought me to hurl. She was the mother of s flight attendant as well, and was constantly brought amenities from the first class cabin. Really not appropriate for the rest of us in premium economy"
Pro: "a320 was comfortable"
Pro: "We had a Lufthansa pilot sitting with us on his was back to Frankfurt. He was definitely good company and taught us a lot about how the airline worked, his family's history working with airlines, and life stories. The flight definitely went fast thanks to Daniel!"
Contra: "I was sick so couldn’t fly, spoke to customer care and they refused to let me change my flight"
Pro: "Everything was good."
Contra: "No major complaints."
Pro: "Space in cabin, friendly crew and nice food"
Contra: "Shorter stoppage ;)"
Pro: "Staff were excellent. Helped me with storing my insulin in the fridge."
Contra: "Departing the plane into steps to z bus carrying heavy bags with no help."
Pro: "Short flight but staff very attentive, food good."
Pro: "Red wine was OK, passed on the free sandwich as last time it didn’t agree with me"
Contra: "Flight was over an hour late and no compensation from the airlines."
Pro: "They held the plane for some of the passengers that were delayed."
Contra: "Everything was fine"
Pro: "The flight was very smooth, take off off & landing. The crew was polite. Although they kept calling me sir when I am a woman."
Contra: "There were minimal new movie choices. A lot of old movie movie options. The food was terrible! Definitely need to step their game up here. I also didn’t like that the customer behind me kept bumping my seat every time he moved or made a movie selection."
Pro: "One of flight attendants lent me her phone charger to charge my phone which absolutely saved and they were just generally very pleasant and easy to interact with."
Pro: "Poor customer service dealing with bag delayed for 5 days, almost all of my holiday was over by the time the bag came and I was promised my bag would arrive on day 2, 3 and 4. Didn't arrive til 5th day"
Contra: "Late baggage, incompetent staff who each told me a different lie about when the bag would arrive"
Contra: "Incorrect advice from check in staff at Dublin re transit visa requirements"
Contra: "I was not allowed to take my cabin bag and was forced to check it in at the checkin counter. The reason mentioned to me was the flight is small. Contradictorily, travellers after me in the queue were allowed to take cabin bags."
Pro: "The entertainment was good."
Contra: "Many things. Starting from the online/mobile check in process via United airlines. I was not given any other option but to check in through the United website. On that website I was not allowed to check in for my Lufthansa flights and i was stuck with seats I did not want in my 2 long intercontinental flights. This has happened before. Lufthansa has no option to check in online if my first flight leg is united. This is a very big drawback and also the reason I would not prefer to fly Lufthansa again. United is bringing the quality down."
Contra: "We called customer service to change our seats to an aisle seat on both of our flights due to a knee injury and the representative changed them for us after trying to make excuses that she couldn't. When we boarded we found out she gave us BOTH middle seats in the middle of the plane on both flights, she lied to us about them."
Contra: "The security line at the Berlin airport was very long. It took almost 40 minutes and the airline was not providing information / assurances that the plane would wait."
Pro: "Flight was on time. We boarded and left on time. Flight attendants were friendly and courteous. I was happy to get a complementary sandwich and drink on such a short flight. We arrived at our destination earlier than expected. Seats were no frills, but decent. Overall good experience."
Contra: "Boarding is stressful. A free for all. I wish they would announce and board one section at a time. I'm traveling with children! I don't want extra stress of people being so pushy. Also,on arrival the bus back to the terminal was similar."
Contra: "I was denied boarding on the Dublin to Munich leg of my connecting flight from Newark to Munich. My ticket was booked through Lufthansa, but the transatlantic leg of my trip was operated by United. When checking in with United in Newark, I received two boarding passes, one for each leg of the trip. I arrived on time in Dublin for my flight to Munich and tried to board the plane for Munich with the boarding pass I had printed in Newark. After scanning my ticket, the Lufthansa employees at the gate informed me that they had no record of me or my plane ticket in their system. I showed them the email confirmation for my ticket, but they still could not find any record of my ticket in their online system. The employees seemed more concerned with boarding all passengers as quickly as possible than assisting me. After being denied boarding, I had to go back through passport control to change my flight, and ended up getting to Munich nearly 6 hours behind schedule and missed an entire day of vacation. A Lufthansa employee told me that out of every partner in the STAR alliance, United is the ONLY airline they have had this problem with. I find this inexcusable, I will be AVOIDING ANY United/Lufthansa connecting flight from now on."
Pro: "Crew was friendly"
Contra: "Flight delayed by over 3 hours, inflight entertainment did not work"
Pro: "Crew was very friendly and eager to help, as I was traveling alone with a baby"
Pro: "The experience was fantastic, can not critique at all. They made a 14 hour flight a great experience and even a 5hr layover be relaxing. It will be hard to travel with other companies now"
Contra: "It will be hard to travel with another airline"
Pro: "I liked when I thought I had my new booking."
Contra: "When I found out that I was a week late for my flight. Argh! Stuck in the airport at the moment."
Pro: "Good entertainment selection"
Pro: "Good service except added an extra flight to my trip and"
Contra: "Pilot strike rerouted added a flight and 12 HRs"
Pro: "New crew on first flight but they we're even"
Contra: "Not much. Left sitting on a plane for over an hour & 1/2. Then taken into a door where I illegally entered the country. My passports seized. No other flight available to Dallas. Sent to Newark, NJ & missed the next flight to Dallas because Lufthansa lost my scooter. Someone pulled it by a wire and it doesn't run correctly. VERY BAD EXPERIENCE!!!"
Pro: "The airline staff for Lufthansa were kind, courteous, and respectful! As mentioned, haven't flown in 30 years, let alone, never overseas, and I couldn't have had a better experience; especially being in economy seating! Would fly with Lufthansa again in a second, and recommended them to friends on Facebook!!"
Contra: "No complaints!"
Pro: "the crew was good"
Contra: "the food was poor"
Pro: "Friendly service and good food."
Contra: "Long flight"
Pro: "Comfortable and smooth flight"
Contra: "2 1/2 hour wait while boarded then missed flights in toronto. Toronto airport a mess! Unclear directions and procedues."
Pro: "Last year I flew Air France. Lufthansa is far superior!"
Contra: "I wasn't even on this airline my booking reference said that I was. I had this airlines flight number I go to the gate to check in, and then for me I'm on Air Canada. This was a mass from the start I will never use this airline or Air Canada again they ruin my login and told me it's still usable we had a delayed for three hours on the plane. Never never again!"
Pro: "Everything went well. It was a smooth flight."
Pro: "Crew onboard was attentive and helpful."
Contra: "No legroom in coach. The person in front of me was sitting in my lap. They are the only airline that weighs your handbag, the luggage you take onboard. E en of it fits the size requirements they weigh it and make you confirm. They don't care if your checked luggage is underweight but your hand luggage is overweight and both add up to less than what you're allowed overall. Makes no sense and is such a useless hassle."
Contra: "on purposely made passengers miss connecting flight and did not genuinely try to help. Everybody follows so called policy like a robot regardless the circumstance. An airline with no feeling and emotion. Arrogant and don't care about passengers."
Pro: "Food was solid. It was nice to have two meals on the flight. Flight attendants were all great."
Contra: "Outside of mealtimes, ordering drinks throughout the flight was more difficult than other airlines. I'd also like to see more movie options. Boarding lines were sloppy and unorganized."
Pro: "The crew came round with bottled water multiple times during the trip and even after taking off 15 min late, we still landed 30 mins early and the luggage came out quickly."
Contra: "The meal before landing consisted of nothing but the worst ham sandwich I've ever had the mis-fortune to be served: reminiscent of Bulgarian Airlines in the 80's."
Pro: "Roomy flight, professional crew, great service."
Contra: "Check in with an extra bag or overweight baggage is cumbersome. You must first check in, then take bag elsewhere to pay fee, then take bag back to check in."
The boarding at the Vienna airport was an absolute chaos; no rhyme or reason, no order just everyone shoving; I thought I was in some 3rd world country where the concept of organization and order has not reached 21st century. The web site is one of the worst, not intuitive or clear at all; it took me forever to book a seat and having to pay for it, another slap in the face. I traveled with Austrian air many times but this was just so frustrating and disappointing.
Pentru mine totul a funcționat bine… chiar foarte bine
Contra: "Poor selection of european films! There is a far bigger choice in e.g. Singapore airlines or Cathay Pacific. Rest was fine."
Pro: "The hotel was nice although I was unable to sleep due to the delays all around concerning my connecting flight. I am thoroughly upset because I contacted the airlines 3 times in May to express my concern with the 30mins layover. And to no avail. My worst concerns are being played out now. It appears that their isn’t any concern from the airlines about this catastrophe impacting so many people. Shame on you."
Contra: "The connecting flight departed before the first flight landed. Then I was given the wrong information of gate departure by airport personnel. After running like crazy to find this gate for departure, the plane had already departed before we even landed. There wasn’t anyone around to help, and finally I found an airport worker who gave me the same incorrect information. She was as perplexed as was I. Finally, she directed me to the information booth where I was booked in a flight the next day. The food voucher was insufficient to cover dinner, i had to pay out of my pocket but I was frugal given the financial situation. The taxi service personnel were rude and it took a long time to taxi me to the hotel where I am unable to sleep because I have an early morning g departure. All in all, between the airport delays getting me to the hotel, lack of proper food and treatment by personnel, I am exhausted and lost sleep in the process."
Contra: "Was very satisfied with everything."
Pro: "Very efficient and fuss free. Just what I was looking for from a short haul flight!"
Contra: "The snacks are super small, which isn’t unexpected when the flight time is so short."
Pro: "They DID NOT let me aboard the airline!!! Austerian airline is the worst EVER, because they are not even helping me to get a credit to fly Monday to Israel. The of ticket counter at ORD were treating me as a dirt. And unwelcome. I was trying to reason with them, they did NOT want to help."
Contra: "It would have been better if back to back with priceline helped me out to get to another flight & they won’t even credit my ticket, so I LOST about $1200 & was excited for my vacation. They were unhelpful & they kept putting me untold & hanging up on me with their ticket agency on phone too."
Pro: "Crew was friendly and helpful, food was tasty and flight was nice and smooth."
Contra: "It would be wonderful to have all seats the same as first class for a long distance flight."
Contra: "They were delayed on every one of my flights - missed connecting flight and had to be booked on a new flight which got in a midnight. Terrible!!"
Pro: "This is always a pleasant airline to travel with."
Contra: "I felt like the airlines deliberately cheated me. I purchased a flight that was listed as "economy" , which means I am authorized one suitcase. When I got to checkout they said I had pay for the suitcase. Turns out my flight was economy 'light' flight and I had to go the Austrian airlines desk and pay euro 40 for my suitcase. Wish that would have been clear when I purchased the ticket. Also there is no clear info on what the cost is for your bag at what point in the check-in process."
Pro: "Very good drink service (one cold and one hot drink)"
Pro: "Timing flight people working very nice and hospitality"
Contra: "Checked baggage very expensive."
Pro: "Crew only offered water once during the whole night flight. The entertainment programs regarding games was very restricted, both in terms of game offers as well as operation / handling"
Pro: "Personal entertainment screens, average choice of movies."
Contra: "2.5 hrs late departure with little information meantime, almost missed our connection. our luggage did not arrive with us. Poor food, almost no service during flight."
Pro: "The flight was fast and conftable"
Contra: "I didn’t get my food"
Contra: "They are always delayed"
Pro: "I had double seat all to myself so that was nice."
Contra: "The flight was delayed by 2hrs because of the strike - very annoying. The food was average for the plane foodn but the desert was excellent"
Contra: "Our flight was delayed by three hours due to “technical problems“. We were never updated during the weight and when we were told that the flight was canceled everyone was told to go back to the ticketing area to pick up their luggage and to find other options. When we were almost halfway there we were told to turn around and that the flight in fact was not canceled. The food was mediocre at best in the service on the plane was in adequate. They were understaffed and staff to peer to be stressed and fatigued. The seats were small and cramped and not well padded in the economy section. We are going to be flying on Lufthansa in the spring and will hope that their services are better than what we experienced on Austrian air."
Pro: "Great airline, everything on time,exelent service, great staff, good food"
Contra: "Everything was fine"
Pro: "Very orderly fashion onto boarding"
Contra: "My suitcase got destroyed"
Pro: "The rep was able to get me on Air France instead."
Contra: "This flight switch added a layover and 8 hrs to my journey home. Not to mention I was in a middle seat on the. 11 hr leg when I had originally booked a window seat."
Pro: "The crew was very professional and kind and evetything was on time. The food is tasty."
Contra: "No entertainment at all."
Contra: "LOST BAGGAGE !!!!!!!"
Contra: "Very confusing boarding procedures. In Vienna they would check you at the gate to make sure you are in but keep you standing for a long time. I am not sure what happened but food was barely edible: breakfast eggs were like rubber and Lunch was served with a tiny sandwich. For a 10 hour flight it was not even sufficient"
Pro: "I fly this route on Austrian 5 times a year, and I nearly always choose Austrian because it hast the overall best 'package' - a comfortable plane with excellent sleeping seats in business class, the best airline food in the world from Do & Co, the nicest staff that really cares about your well being and the quickest connection between Bangkok and Vienna."
Contra: "The entertainment program is a bit slim, to my taste - but I'm not a big consumer of inflight movies, as I prefer to get more sleep when I fly. When compared to the entertainment program on Singapore Airlines, for example, Austrian's own can't really compete."
Pro: "In general, I like the on board food of Austrian and especially in regard of Do&Co catering from Vienna Airport. Staff was not to trying this time but service was still okay."
Contra: "The Senator Lounge at Vienna Airport is very poor, food selection is very limited and it is obvious that the focus is on cost saving. Another disadvantage is that the lounge only opens at 5.30am in the morning but first flight already leave Vienna around 6am. Mine was at 7.05am which meant that I just arrived when the lounge opened and I had to wait in a long cue. Boarding was due to the limited space in front of the gate a mess, priority boarding was announced but I was not made sure that priority passengers board first. The seats on board are for business to small and there is not even space to hag up the coat."
Pro: "see above"
Contra: "see above"
Pro: "Great staff, friendly and helpful."
Pro: "Was on partner airline Austrian Air. Very good service."
Contra: "At Vienna gate G31 it was difficult to hear announcements."
Contra: "Initial flight was late taking off for no reason except they scheduled too many incoming flights. Made my second flight but my bag did not and had to wait over a day for it while missing a day of work."
Pro: "Food, entertainment."
Contra: "Aircraft was older 777 and lavatories weren't very clean. Upon landing in Vienna, my mobility walker (tagged to be brought up to me at jetway) was sent to my connecting flight to Sophia. The flight crew refused to intercept it and have it brought up to me at the aircraft. To make matters much, much worse, the flight crew eventually gave up and left, leaving me LOCKED inside the jetway for over 30 minutes after calling for a wheelchair. The replentishment crew refused to let me out of the locked jetway. Only after the wheelchair arrived was I let out of the locked jetway. I was taken to the Austrian Airlines service center where I lodged a formal complaint. Supervisor/Rene refused to upgrade my seat in any fashion to compensate for my distress. He did, however, arrange for me to given access to the VIP lounge and then taken to my VIE-SOF gate. Had I had a shorter layover, I would have missed my connecting flight."
Pro: "The food was very good! And the movies you could choose too."
Contra: "Give me some knee room. I'm only 5 10 - What happens to the tall people?"
Pro: "I like the cotrious service. But I wish this international flight would take two suitcases instead of one"
Contra: "It was pretty chilly on the flight throughout the entire way. Please use more heat next time. Thank you!"
Pro: "The flight was on time, and the attendents on Austrian engaging and charming crew"
Contra: "nothing in particular"
Contra: "It was almost 2 hours delayed"
Pro: "The flight attendants were very friendly and spoke English well. Loved the food and the service"
Pro: "1st class should board last, it just makes mire sense for a lot of reasons. Also 8kg carry limit is rediculous and loosely enforced. We were clearly selected to check our bags. There were others with bags heavier and larger than ours that were permitted to stuff them in their overheads."
Contra: "Flight was very delayed leaving Sofia which made connecting flights for many people a rush and very stressful. People were pulled to the front of the plane and told to rush to catch their flights. My bag didn't make my connecting flight but Austrian delivered it 2 days later."
Contra: "There weren't a single blanket on the whole flight"
Pro: "Everything went well other than what was served for breakfast."
Contra: "The food that was served for dinner was fine. Some fruit/yogurt would have been far better for breakfast than the muffin that was served."
Pro: "I was offered to change my flight for 400 Euros, and did so. Had the offer been for less money, I would not have. I was told that the chance of my losing the new seat was minimal, as the computer was very overbooked and rarely wrong. I was then told at the gate that I had to wait there, and did so, despite having already checked into a lounge (for a fee), because I needed to print a bank bill (my reason for going to Moscow from Vienna, not directly home from Vienna to New York, is to pay a fee into an account at the bank). So I waited, and in the meantime contacted my friend in Moscow to tell him I'd be arriving 10 hours later than planned. Then at the very last minute that 2 people who had booked for the flight had not appeared, and that I had to board it. Hugely frustrating on account of the endless assurances made."
Pro: "Nice flight..friendly staff, tasty food, and on time arrivals."
Contra: "I did not like vendors at the Vienna airport charging me 2 dollars U.S. for 1 Euro. When checking the exchange rates the next day it was $1.15 per Euro.. I feel taken advantage of paying $44.00 U.S. for a snack that was 22 Euros. It happened again with another vendor there..$6.00 for a 3 Euro small bottle of water."
Delays. Endless walking at Schiphol, most exits closed. No staff or signs.
Thumbs up for KLM crew, planes and Schiphol Airport, though short on staff and a little late everything went smooth, including the flight.
Pro: "The crew from Kili to DarEsSalam was tired. A fresh crew worked from DarEsSalam to AMS and they were great."
Contra: "The boarding process was chaotic. The passengers in the first boarding group had to fight through the crowd because there were no boarding lanes."
Pro: "Decent price for economy comfort seat, 4A."
Contra: "The flight was delayed about 80 minutes and they did not informed until when I got to the Airport. I could have stayed more at home instead of the terminal. They have also changed the boarding gate.."
Pro: "Loved the smooth ride."
Contra: "Bathroom was pretty nasty"
Pro: "The crews were pretty great!"
Contra: "The regulating of the temperature."
Contra: "Information on arrival time was not correct"
Pro: "Flight arrived on time"
Contra: "No food provided "due to a strike the previous day". Not sure why this would impact on providing a sandwich or snack particularly when champagne was still available for first class passengers."
Pro: "Good amount of space on the plane, lots of movies to watch, good food and drink."
Contra: "The plane is so old..,"
Pro: "Boarding was quick and flight was calm"
Contra: "The coffe and breakfast."
Contra: "The KLM crew are always great serving and treating you. Well above many other airlines."
Pro: "The staff was super nice, the services good. Clear lines about baggage allowance."
Contra: "The flight was delayed and due to this I missed my car connection. I had to prolong my trip by 4 hours, untill I found another connection. I know this was not a klm issue, but rather airport related, but the inconvenience was still. Thus, my lower satisfaction grade"

Pro: "Crew was friendly"
Contra: "Passenger who needed wheelchair assistance it took KLM 50 minutes to get him off plane which delayed our boarding. KLM not prepared to handle passengers with needs"
Pro: "Pleasant flight"
Contra: "We were delayed & missed our connection"
Pro: "The crew was attentive and the seat at economy comfort was comfortable at the “ok” level. It needs much mor3 to be super comfortable. The plug for the headphones was a mess! It was NOT possible to watch a movie and hear the sound too! I gave up! Not a great offering for the extra dollars..."
Contra: "So many things! Starting with the way assistance in the airport is offered to travellers with mobility issues! This is an important issue that needs to be revisited and changes for better service to be made!"
Pro: "Crew was pleasant but not attentive to detail. Bypassed is completely for snack and drink towards end of 9 hour flight!"
Contra: "Pay attention to passengers."
Pro: "Being fed was amazing and watching free TV was great!"
Contra: "I wish there were personal fans because it got uncomfortably hot sandwiched between people"
Pro: "quick/efficient boarding - good staff - good food - easy flight !"
Contra: "the connecting times for klm seem to be very close - if your running late to start - you may not make your next one -"
Pro: "Food provided, staff kind"
Contra: "Was several hours delayed and check in took 45 minutes because they somehow lost my reservation."
Contra: "I called for a crew member 5 times and waited 25 minutes for anyone to help me with just some water. I had to get up and go to the very back of the plane to ask for some water. The plane was hot and no air to be found. This was all after we had to get back off the plane before takeoff. It was terrib"
Contra: "I booked tickets via Delta, operated by KLM. They lost both of my check in bags in September, and it happened again today for the same scheduled flights. Had 4 hours of layover and KLM still wasn’t able to manage it."
Pro: "Friendly and efficient crew. I travel KLM often and always enjoy the flights."
Contra: "There were several flight delays and gates were changes a few times."
Contra: "Flight was delayed, landing at vce took an additional 10 minutes due to no one at the jet way. Luggage service was very slow"
Contra: "I’ve traveled a lot internationally and this was the WORST flight I’ve ever had to endure. I felt like I was being tortured and didn’t sleep at all and so slept when getting into Amsterdam rather than being able to explore the city. I was out $200 for the Airbnb (could’ve stayed in the airport cheaper) and $200 for a dinner cruise I slept through. NEVER AGAIN"
Pro: "The staff tried to help me when it was evident we would not arrive on time"
Contra: "The connecting flight is too short of a time. We were late out of LAX and I missed my connection and had to sit in airport for 5 hours. Missed my grandson’s third birthday party. Just made me sad as Travelled from far to try to make it."
Pro: "Shirt flight but well catered, boarding was efficient and quick."
Contra: "Not lots of legroom but adequate for an hour long hop. It was cold on board and also had to board via steps from outside"

Contra: "attitude of crew in business class: no sense of true hospitality"
Pro: "The crew was efficient. Flight left on time. Food and wine served."
Contra: "No entertainment."
Pro: "Easy flight; loved the crew and their friendly customer service. Great food, kept everyone hydrated and fed."
Contra: "The movie options, as well as music and TV options were limited. There were no electrical outlets."
Pro: "I slept pretty much the whole time"
Pro: "The boarding was easy and you didn't have to wait inline for that long"
Contra: "KLM needs to upgrade the entertainment. It was very hard to see the images on the screen. The planes that KLM uses are old and they sure need to be upgraded."
Pro: "Decent meal (warm Pasta all'arrabbiata), nice little muffin for dessert and standard drinks (coffee & tea were a bonus, as they didn't serve any on a similar flight, from Barcelona to Amsterdam), friendly cabin crew."
Contra: "Poor timing - no reason for a 40 minute delay at take off (plane was fully boarded in time) Old aircraft, shabby, dirty and cramped seats. Coming from my connecting flight from Barcelona, I could clearly tell the different in the quality (and cleanliness) of the aircrafts."
Contra: "The cabin crew was racist! She asked me to move from a seat because she wanted another guy ( obviously from her country ) to take it! Rude and racist."
Pro: "Good service onboard, good food. On time."
Pro: "On both of my flights to New York City, I was amazed at how friendly and helpful the flight attendants were to the passengers. On my short flight from Basel to Amsterdam, a young French speaking girl was concerned about how to manage getting to her next gate. The flight attendants talked to her and arranged for someone to take her there. On my longer flight from Amsterdam to New York City, there was a customer who was in distress about missing a previous flight and not making it to her connecting flight in New York. One of the flight attendants reassured her until she stopped crying and calmed down. That same flight attendant was always so positive and cheerful in all she did. The rest of the crew was top notch. This was my best experience flying in such a long time. Well done, KLM crews of flights 1984 and 0645 on July 10!"
Pro: "The aircraft was clean"
Contra: "The food was terrible, wifi was extremely expensive (Delta had free messaging over their wifi)"
Pro: "Good flights. Good prices."
Pro: "The staff are the best European crews I have encountered. Naturally friendly, professional and fit looking. Nothing is too much trouble"
Pro: "Consistently high standards"
Pro: "The cabin crew were good. They explained what the arrangements were for the delayed flight connections"
Contra: "The plane wasn't refueled and so was not ready for take off once the passengers were loaded. The plane had a technical problem when it tried the first take off and so it had to be abandoned. This was alarming.."
Pro: "Loved the service...everything was excellent"
Contra: "The bus class seat was a bit narrow at the feet"
Pro: "The flight was delayed due to fog, but the staff was amazingly helpful to make sure everyone got to their destination."
Contra: "Terrible service in flight and customer service wise .. app functionality was below"
Contra: "One of the senior stewardesses we're very rude. Whether it's her personal opinion or KLM's policy, it's unreasonable to think that a 3 years old child could or should hold her pipi over 20 minutes, while they slowly and inefficiently trying to give out food. Several parents were there with the request to let us through to the toilet with small children and she smiled in our face and said "no, we will finish first and than you can go". She might be not fit for the job anymore, but KLM can't afford this kind of treatment."
Contra: "There weren't too many options. The movie selection was very limited and the tv show were over 20 years old in some cases"
Pro: "Loved this 747! Crew was professional and food was very good."
Contra: "We had a long wait (25 minutes) at the gate because we were early."
Contra: "Flight delayed, had to take two more flights and was a four hour trip turned into a 12 hour, 4 countries trip"
No food or entertainment. Reasonable seats
You asked about food and entertainment, but there was none. The seats were uncomfortable.
Daca tot se schimba avionul, ar trebui sa se tina cont si de faptul ca DACA AI PLATIT LOC EXTRASPACE TREBUIE SA BENFICIEZI DE EL! Am avut platit loc extra space care s-a transformat într-un loc normal. De toata jjena!
We couldn´t get the boarding pass on line although we tried many times during the previous 24 hours. They made us to pay a suplement of 30 euros in the airport. We have felt cheated.
announcements in english. 5 hour delay, asked twice (and so did other passengers), but no updates in any other language.
Contra: "could not be delayed"
Pro: "To be going home!"
Contra: "Female crew taking orders then taking ages to ring drinks a d they move on to others instead of finishing what they were doing. Then you're lucky if you get given 1 sugar and no spoon lol."
Pro: "Food was excellent; boarding a litlle bit crowded, but didn't notice as had been busy; crew has been kind and helpful"
Contra: "Unconfortable chair seats; seatbelt too short; tables too low for tall ppl"
Pro: "The flight departed on time and arrived the same. The seat was a tad bit narrow for me but then I am a tall guy at 6'5". Crew was very professional. Ticket cost was a third of what the other airlines were offering for a Sunday fare. I'll definitely use BlueAir again!"
Pro: "The crew was well trained, kind and receptive. The pilot managed to drive through a storm and even arrive 10 minutes faster after leaving 5 minutes late."
Contra: "Passengers traveling with pets took our reserved seats. The places for our baggages were occupied. When addressing this issue, we were told to move further ahead to empty seats. There was no meal included, and the one we purchased could not be paid by POS."
Pro: "Boarding was quick and we arrived on time."
Contra: "When getting to Bucharest we were taken by bus and didn’t have a gate."
Pro: "Everything was quite fast, we were like 15 min before the plan ready with boarding, but then somebody needed medical assistabce and we left 15 min delayed. But that's ok, it's nobody's fault. Baggage arrived very fast in Hamburg."
Contra: "A minus for the Crew because when we arrived in Hamburg, people started to open the baggage boxes although we were still rolling (like 5 min too early) and they didn't say anything, so more people were following. When we arrived, almost all the people who could, had the baggage already with them. This happened in the past but the Crew stopped the people on time."
Pro: "What to like? The rudness? The delays? Or the fights on board!!!"
Contra: "The flight was delayed with nearly 2 hrs. Cabin crew were rude made as feel very uncomfortable. This flight as whoke was the worst one I have even been too. Never ever again. BLUE AIR NEEDS TO SORT ALOT OF THINGS BEFORE OFFER SUCH SERVICES"
Contra: "I was unable to check n online (although the process was intitated well earlier than 12 hours prior to departure). The system charged y credit card for a seat reservation and then crashed with an error, both on my phone and laptop browser. When I called at 9:00 am (when their offices are open) to ask for help with what happened, I received no answer other than, "the check in system has just closed. I am unable to help you in any way". I booked another flight with another carrier, and did not take this flight., not do I plan to book with them in the future That being said, it is not the job of the employee to defend a poorly working system. Services need upgrade asap."
Contra: "flight delayed by more than 1 hour"
Contra: "I have booked with 2 checked in baggage pieces. On check in I was told no baggage was paid and I had to pay 100€ for the baggage."
Pro: "Clean enough"
Contra: "Charged £60 for hold luggage because the airline’s unstable website wouldn’t allow me to book in advance (£20 extra in the airport). Plane was delayed because they were late allowing passengers to board and missed the runway slot. Seats were uncomfortable - it was an older airframe."
Pro: "The added touches make all the difference! We didn’t expect free food and was delighted to receive breakfast. The chairs were much more comfortable than any other plane I’ve been on due to the adjustable head rest, and as a regular flyer to Cyprus, this made a difference. The sweets served just before landing is an excellent idea and something that we do need due to our ears, so this was appreciated. staff were attentive and pleasant."
Contra: "To have the menu and duty free booklet at the beginning of the flight would have been helpful."
Pro: "Flight Attendants very good"
Contra: "Dusseldorf to Warsaw: Boarding terrible including assistance and messaging. - Boarding chaos - Late flight out of Dusseldorf (about an hour) - Just before landing, pilot announced all connections would be made - (and even mentioned chicago) - Connecting flight was gone when I arrived at gate, and I was quick in getting to gate from prior flight - next flight caused 5 hour layover in Warsaw Warsaw to Chicago Boarding terrible including assistance and messaging. - Boarding chaos - Late flight our ot Warsaw (about an hour) - no messaging at gate about reason for delay - kept increasing departure by 5 minute increments; started at 16:40 ended 17:05 (I beleive) - once boarding was complete, pilot said delay was due to wait for connections (boarding was an hour and 15 minutes late). Very frustrated"
Contra: "The plane seemed very old, toilet in poor condition."
Contra: "7hour delayin onnecting flight! Seats on plane torn and very uncomfortable, meal booked but no food available."
Pro: "Flight was delay by 1 hour consequently my luggage did Ot arrive with me to Katowice on top of that there is no more flights today from waw to kat with lot Airline"
Contra: "Serive to pay extra luggage very very slow"
Pro: "The free snack (biscuits and drink). The hard-working attendant (having to stuff all the baggage into the overhead lockers). Boarding at the rear door enabling me to get to my seat early."
Contra: "A slight whistling noise coming from the rear of the cabin, not too bothersome but it's there (I think the plane is getting a bit old). Not being able to disembark from the rear."
Contra: "It was very hot on the plane. There was no legroom in my seat, it was very uncomfortable."
Pro: "company gave out free drinks and snacks"
Contra: "They change the fly departing time with 12 hours before I was flying"
Pro: "Easy to book on phone no problems getting boarding passes etc."
Contra: "Could not amend my booking tried to check a bag online after printing out boarding pass. Had to pay £46 for a 11k bag each way."
Pro: "On time ,clean aircraft..."
Contra: "Crew was very serious...a smile can make a difference....."
Pro: "Flight on time . Attentive crew . Good price ."
Contra: "Lack of leg room ."
Contra: "The actual flight was good, but to try and check in on line is murder..the website needs a totally new revamp, both to & from Larnaca I was unable to check in on line. You enter all your details press confirm and it is supposed to go to the next instruction, but a message appeared then took you back to your previous page and you had to input all your details again..this happened many times before I eventually gave up."
Contra: "Rude crew, not organised work , not enough space for legs"
Pro: "The food they offer to purchase. Easy check in at the airport."
Contra: "Better seat pitch. I'm not a tall man, but the space is very small."
Pro: "Leg room and reclining"
Pro: "free breakfast great staff"
Pro: "Free drinks, cheap flight and fairly comfortable!"
Contra: "No allocated seat."
Pro: "staff very friendly and polite ..airplane wasnt full so i get the chance to have a nice fly with my 2 little sons"
Pro: "Everything was awesome!!! I am going to buy only from you my next flights."
Contra: "The agent lady on the desk did nothing to help us get on our flight. She refused to identify herself. We intend to sue the company for the damages caused to us because of this bad attitude."
Pro: "Reliable and friendly staff. Even offered a free soft drink and sandwich on a short haul flight."
Contra: "Space to sit, especially when seated in the middle"
Pro: "Can't say that I liked anything at all."
Contra: "1. Poor coordination by the crew members. 2. Been treated with arrogance and superiority by crew members. 3. Disgusting food."
Pro: "comfy seats and a breakfast thrown in !"
Contra: "not much"
Pro: "Leaving more or less on time serving food & beverages on a low cost flight Even though I didnt eat (carb free, there were'nt any friut or vegtebles) yet the idea was thoughtfull."
Contra: "Seats rather narrow"
Pro: "am ajuns chiar mai devreme, personalul foarte dragut si amabil , scaunul comod , mancare si bauturi bune."
Pro: "Good price, comfortable seats, nuce food and candies"
Contra: "No online check-in. 1 hour waiting for nothing."
Contra: "Ryanair announced that we could postpone the flights without any cost due to corona virus and when I tried to reach them/to change the flight date the change tax was still there."
Pro: "From pillar to post not one delay."
Pro: "The flight was quick, customer service was good on the plane"
Contra: "Checking in online was a nightmare as the site kept freezing, there was a mix up with my priority and cabin baggage, I was told by the webchat team that this had gone through but not on my boarding pass, when I got the the airport the Ryanair staff were extremely rude to us, they sent us to the back of the queue I front of everyone and then told us we would have to pay to take our bags with us, they then had to be out on the hold. When we got back to Birmingham we then had to sit on the plane for around 15 minutes as there was not a slot for us. I spent hours of my 2 day break trying to sort check ins etc, I would never fly with Ryanair again."
Contra: "There was only 1 polite cabin crew member. People were shouting and walking all around the plane through out the flight and the cabin crew did nothing to stop this. It made the early morning flight impossible to doze off on."
Contra: "I would be great if the flight attendants quieter than the aeroplane engines. My earbuds are no expensive enough."
Pro: "Quicker flight late at night"
Contra: "Waiting on bus to terminal Almost missed last train."
Pro: "Reasonably priced. Check in was quick and easy. Boarding was easy"
Contra: "Seats are very cramped and uncomfortable. I’m 179cm and it’s a tight enough squeeze for in the seats."
Contra: "Seating uncomfortable, don’t even serve water, charge money to check in 3 days early and for some strange reason they charged 100€ for standard carry ones manufactured by Samsonite for international travel because it didn’t fit in their standard cubby ... the same carry ones they allowed from London to Stansted became a tad too big on return . They remind me of US traffic police that start giving tickets on tiny issues st the end of the month to make their quota . Also many people in the line had bags exactly our size"
Contra: "It would be amazing to get 30 minutes without trying to sell something and constant use of the microphone for useless promotions. I don't really get on flights so I can buy a watch, a perfume or a scratch card, no need to spend 5 minutes trying to sell it."
Pro: "Once the aircraft arrived the boarding and take off were fairly quick. The flight itself self was extremely quick and there was no hassle. Quite impressed with that."
Contra: "The flight was delayed initially with 2 hours. There was no notification by the airport. After 2 hours there was another hpur delay. Again there was no notification. We and the other passengers had to constantly last to the gatw screen to see any updates. We were left in the dark until the very moment we started boarding."
Pro: "On time fly gut and prompt baggage handling"
Contra: "Getting charged 220EUR to check in at the airport."
Pro: "Cheap & Cheerful, as usual"
Contra: "Delayed Boarding Delayed Taxi Delayed dis-embarking (no dispatcher) just two bus drivers and no unloading of cases o those with mobility issues"
Pro: "Late departure from Dublin as expected But it was 30 min, anyways the flight made up time and only arrived 5 minutes late. The staff were very helpful also"
Contra: "The new slimline seats are very uncomfortable when seated for anything longer than an hour, the cushioning is very light and the angle of the seat is not as comfortable as the old ryanair seats. Also there was a long delay in Ciampino at the baggage belts considering the airport was empty - i know this is more a problem with the Airport but ryanair would surely have enough pull to get this sorted."
Pro: "New plane was comfortable."
Contra: "Very late service. Crew forgot about our row during the drinks service. Usual chaos from Ryanair's aggressive seating policy although people managed to swap themselves around to sit together. This wasted more time of course."
Pro: "Boarding was ahead of schedule, but we waited on the runway for a long time. Checking in via an app is great too."
Contra: "The seats are uncomfortable, the application of the baggage policy is inflexible & difficult, there are no places to put your things and having seating assigned randomly when you travel with someone is ridiculous. I love discount airlines, but being charged for things that would make me happier while not costing the airline a penny is too far. Ryanair gets your initial business with artificially low rates and then nickle-and-dimes you until you pay at least as much as you would by just going with an honest carrier that charges normal prices up front. I am tired of being messed about when there are equivalently priced carriers that aren't such shysters."
Contra: "Notification of flight cancellation even though the flight departed on twitter. Flight should have been cancelled as no transport links to Dublin Airport due to adverse weather."
Contra: "Both our flights to and from Malta were delayed by 3 hours"
Pro: "Was quick and easy"
Pro: "Flight was smooth nice and on time"
Pro: "Flight was on time"
Contra: "Couldn't take on bag as not priority. Booked extra leg room seats expecting priority but no longer Won't travel with Ryan air again"
Pro: "It was a stress free journey. Which I will be doing at least 4 more times this year"
Contra: "I cannot think of anything. Except you can't buy duty free cigarettes on the trip anymore"
Pro: "The crew"
Contra: "Sitting with a stranger"
Pro: "Got the best fairs, had it booked well in advance No hassle"
Contra: "On arrival all trains were cancelled and it was very hard to find a bus or someone to talk to but that was a separate issue"
Pro: "Loved the speed and efficiency of everything; we arrived from Dublin to Gatwick 25 minutes early. Plenty of opportunity for inflight purchases for such a small flight which was great!"
Pro: "Friendly staff and comfortable seats"
Contra: "The delay."
Contra: "The really need one of their newer planes ✈️ for the lanzorote route. Longer seatbelts needed."
Pro: "Staff were nice"
Contra: "Seating were narrow"
Contra: "No flight announcement at Dublin airport so missed flight"
Pro: "On time departure and arrival"
Contra: "Access to airplane and egress via the aircraft own steps is an accident waiting to happen for those people with impaired mobility."
Pro: "Fast, efficient, no stress So Glad that Ryanair did away with unallocated seating No passport control at Liverpool meant my time from landing to home including picking up checked luggage was 20 mins."
Contra: "Very long walk on landing"
Pro: "I had a good flight either way. Some turbulence, what you might call 'a controlled crash landing' on the way back to Stansted."
Contra: "The price of the flight. I normally am able to secure a return flight for about 100 euros. This time I got a quote for 300 plus for a return flight. Going through an affiliated site helped me to get a slight reduction on the flight. I find it odd that on a Thursday or a Tuesday the cost can be 12.99 pound either way and yet on a weekend this goes up to a silly amount. The flight is still the same. I am still going to the same place. Having to book three months in advance to avail of a cheaper ticket is of no use to me. The girl checking us in on the outward journey had her back to us the entire time when making an announcement for boarding. She looked like she was sucking sour sweets. No friendliness about her at all. Passengers using overhead spaces different to where they are sitting. That's really irritating."
Pro: "The seats are roomy enough. The plane was very clean although it had just landed before."
Contra: "The flight was already late when we boarded. Even so, everyone on the plane was switching places between themselves causing additional chaos, with the flight attendants’ approval."
Contra: "The Ryan Air staff were ignorant and complained when asked any questions."
Contra: "Customer service"
Pro: "Flight attendant was gas. A polish buck with a Irish accent"
Contra: "The flight was delayed for 1 hour"
Pro: "The make cabin crew had such a strong accent and spoke so fast that no one on the plane could barely understand a word he said during any of the announcements. He made no effort to slow it down and speak clearer"
Contra: "As above"
Pro: "The flight departed on time and arrived early. Pleasant staff, no fuss. Just what you want from a flight."
Pro: "Nothing, taxi plane, expectations not high"
Contra: "Cramped seating, flight delay, time waiting at the boarding gate."
Pro: "Standard Ryanair flight. Usual boarding etc. No problems."
Contra: "Being split all over the aircraft because we refuse to give in to Ryanair extortion to squeeze more money out of us. Clearly would have been able to seat us all together. Won't buy another coffee or food until this policy changes."
Pro: "The boarding was efficient flight"
Contra: "Flight was delayed. Seats are not comfortable. I was in a bus at the back and when it arrived at the demarcation door, the driver didn't open all the 3 doors! He only opened the front door beside himself so everyone had to exit by that door."
Pro: "Crew were lovely both at gate and on board. They were very reassuring as the flight was very bumpy for a while due to weather conditions"
Contra: "nothing really would have liked a little more leg room but those seats were booked when I booked mine"
Pro: "Ryan Air 5.5 hrs Flight Delay from Glasgow, Scotland to Dublin, Ireland (Draft 2.1) Our flight from Glasgow, Scotland to Dublin Ireland on September 22nd with Ryan Air was delayed for 5.5 hrs (165 minutes) for unexplained reasons. We were supposed to depart at 3:25 pm and we actually departed at 8:55 pm when the plane actually began to move from the terminal to the runway. Over the ensuring 5.5 hr. delay there was no plausible reason given by gate staff or the bag check-in staff or the electronic flight board of daily departures in the Glasgow airport. Here is what we heard from all 3 communication sources stated in the previous sentence: • Seven (7) actual time delays of actual flight departure times (electronic flight board) ranging from: 3:25 pm, 4;30 pm; to be scheduled; moved to 5:15 pm; 6:30 pm; 8:00 pm; 9:00 pm; check with the gate. • Waiting for a plane to arrive......... • We have no idea...... • Waiting for a plane and a crew to arrive.... • Corporate is working on finding an available plane...... • I don't know....we will post the details when they are known to us..... The Scottish Times Newspaper (Sept. 21 or 22), reported that Ryan Air had allowed too many pilots to go on vacation at the same time which had made the entire flight schedule prone to long flight delays and numerous flight cancellations. What was reported on the various UK news shows was very different. Their were serious labor issues between Ryan Air's pilots and management, particularly Dennis O'Leary the CEO, over work conditions including pay and job performance. Those of us who read local UK newspapers had an inkling that the pot was boiling. However, as the actual departure delay went beyond the scheduled 3:23 pm, passengers were uneasy about our hotel rooms in our destination cities still being held and whether any drop-off family members should go home or be available if the flight was ultimately cancelled. What made it worse was Ryan Air realized that they were in violation of the European Union flight delay rule so they passed out FLIGHT DELAY POLICY to those waiting in line. The gate crew and the check-in folks outside security told us about having to provide all passengers two (2) free phone calls except that this would mean leaving security at the expected gate and going back to the Ryan Air check-in counter and back through security. A very arduous process one more time. Ryan Air has very arcane booking rules so if I change my checked baggage to a larger size, my only option was to add an additional piece of luggage at a very stiff cost. In our opinion, Ryan Air is a very poorly managed airline and the most customer-combative airline we have ever encountered in our many flights throughout the UK and Europe. Without hesitation, we would not recommend Ryan Air under any circumstances and would be willing to pay more with other carriers who take better care of their customers.

Pro: "I randomly was allocated the emergency exit aisle so not all bad, however my bag was placed in the hold therefore delaying the experience home."
Contra: "Blunt staff, poor check in process, sold too for the whole fights. Sat away from my misses although there was a spare seat next to me."
