Amsterdam is served by Amsterdam Schiphol Airport, also commonly referred to as Amsterdam Airport Schiphol, Schiphol, or simply Amsterdam Airport. The airport code is AMS.
Schiphol train station is located at the airport below Schiphol Plaza, which is a 2-minute walk from Arrivals. You can also catch the Amsterdam Airport Express bus 397, which goes direct to the city centre; you’ll find the bus terminal right outside Schiphol Plaza. To travel by public transport, you can buy the Amsterdam Travel Ticket, a single-use chipcard or an OV-chipkaart – this is a rechargeable public transport card and is cheaper per trip over the long run.
The taxi rank at Amsterdam Schiphol Airport is located in front of Schiphol Plaza. Regular taxis are readily available and they are all metered rides. Another taxi option is the shared taxi system offered by Schiphol Travel Taxi, whereby the driver might stop on the way to drop off or pick up other passengers. The trip could take a little longer but is cheaper than a regular taxi. These little buses fit up to eight people and are also readily available at the airport.
There are two hotels inside the airport: YotelAir is located in Lounge 2 and has day rooms available for rent, while the Mercure Schiphol Terminal Hotel is in Lounge 3, with day rooms available from 10am to 7pm.

Both I and another passenger who flew JAL the weekend before found the vegetarian food poor - very bland and too salty. The exact same menu all four times we flew. A pity as the rest of the service wa excellent. If JAL wishes to attract more international customers it would be a good idea for it to broaden its global perspective and provide better vegetarian options. I know others who've had similar concerns about other types of special meal."

Very impressed & looking forward to our return flight home."
Cons: "Cannot say there were any negatives."
Pros: "Singapore Airlines has everything worked out for you before you land. That's a great help. The stewardesses were just phenomenal and endlessly polite. I will definitely use them again."
Cons: "As much as I normally nitpick something, I literally have no criticism at all of Singapore Airlines. Everything they did was a step above everyone else."
Cons: "Poor customer service and lack of care for loyal passengers"
Pros: "Crew could have been less rude"
Pros: "Serve customers with a smile"
Cons: "Better tasting meal packages served at economy cabin"

Very nice, professional staff even after 13 hours of flight. Just excellent. Thank you for this very pleasant experience. Will definitely fly Singapore Airlines again."
Cons: "There is room for improvement with the special meals. The non gluten brun was very hard. In general it would be nice if passengers could pre-order from a set selection of foods online what they would like on their tray. This would hopefully lower the amount of food that sadly goes to waste. Also it would be nice to have gluten free snacks on board. Flying with celiac disease is not easy."
Cons: "Everything was fine."
Pros: "Flight time"
Pros: "I loved everything! The plane was well maintained, the crew were friendly and attentive, the flight was comfortable even for such long hours. Food was also great! In flight entertainment had recent movies and shows, even international selections."

Pros: "more room in the seats - excellent hostesses who are so friendly and helpful - lovely food."
Pros: "Friendly efficient staff. plane 777 business class seat comfortable, and flat bed, once you figured out how to operate it was also comfortable. Food was good but not excellent compared to previous flights."
Cons: "Singapore Airlines business class lounge in Melbourne was less than impressive and the food was atrocious. Lounge in Singapore was large but still overcrowded. Amenities much better and the food was plentiful and interesting."
Pros: "Scoot employees were really helpful, I missed my flight from Singapore to Kochi because by the time the passengers got off the flight and went through immigration in Singapore, the check in counter had closed, and there was no more flights available to Kochi until 2 days later. The employees made sure I boarded my flight and I came home to my sister’s wedding"
Cons: "Kayak doesn’t specify its two separate tickets for my destination to kochi from Honolulu, also they didn’t specify their would be a stop in Japan before the flight reached Singapore. The flights were delayed by a few minutes, which led to me stressing to make it on time to my flights, and I felt dehydrated and nauseous. Also the website doesn’t specify that we will have to purchase meals either before hand or on board, and that the airlines only took cash and no credit card. It was miserable, a whole 20+ hour flight with lots of stress of catching my flight, checking and the checking my baggage, and being hungry and thirsty because I didn’t carry enough cash on me."
Pros: "Boarding was good and the flight time was shorter than expected."
Cons: "My son did not like any of the meal selections between beef and fish. We asked for a ramen noodle cup instead that the flight crew denied they had, only after seeing them offer it to another family just seconds before. I was very disappointed!! I believe the flight attendant knew of my concerns because she started asking me if the service was ok. If your doing a good job, then you won’t have to ask."
Pros: "Spacious economy class seating and great service"
Pros: "Flight crew, food, boarding and entertainment great."
Cons: "Just didn't like the 7 hour delay for the flight. Nobody's fault."

Pros: "Ease of check in, very quick."
Cons: "Older plane, entertainment system incredibly slow, plane needs tidying up, starting to look its age."

Pros: "Prem econ very good. Crew very friendly."
Pros: "smooth service with refreshments"
Cons: "No working seat audio"
Pros: "Helpful crew. Full food service!"
Pros: "The staff were helpful, once I had complained enough."
Cons: "Aircraft was old, tired, and uncomfortable. The seat of my chair was not attached. There were huge comms boxes below every 2nd seat so zero legroom. Screens were so old they were unwatchable and tiny. Air Asia provides a superior service for a fraction of the price."
Pros: "clean aircraft and friendly cabin crew"
Cons: "uncomfortable seats, average meals, poor infotainment selection"
Pros: "The flight attendants are professional, attentive, efficient. One suggestion, they didn't know to offer a nauseous passenger ginger ale. I let them know to give her some and she was very grateful. Also too much food! It's so much better than any other airline but very abundant and I feel bad when I only eat a small portion of the items on each tray. Otherwise great crew, plane, boarding, etc."

Pros: "Amazing crew, great service. Really good food"
Pros: "Customer service , crew was nice"
Cons: "Food was terrible out of MEL.. Didn't have any choice at all.. Tasteless , should improve"
Pros: "I loved the movie selection and the food options."
Cons: "The woman behind me kept insisting that I keep my chair in the upright position. With two crying babies on the plane, I was trying to relax and sleep as much as possible on the 12.5 hr flight. What bothered me even more is that when the woman asked the flight attendant to tell me to put my seat up, the flight attendant complied instead of telling the woman it was my seat to do as I wished. Why make the seats recline if they are going to bother the people behind? Why tell me to put my seat up if it was not a requirement for all (ie during take off or landing)? I did not appreciate this and it made my flight extremely uncomfortable."
Pros: "Extremely polite flight crew"

Pros: "Food was okay and crew was okay"
Cons: "Seats were very narrow - Etihad has better seats. Entertainment system had poor sound"
Cons: "Qatar airways claims to have inflight wifi. But it is not true because it did not work in either of my flights. Food could have been better."

Cons: "The food wasn’t bad but since I flew Etihad in July 2017 from New York to Abu Dhabi to Mumbai and back my memories were fresh and Egihad’s food was definitely a notch higher."
Cons: "Qatar Airlines charged us a 600 Euro fee for missing a flight even though we contacted them before to explain the circumstances beyond our control."
Cons: "Although the loading Zone was given as Zone 1, boarding was chaotic because the fround crew was incredibly inefficient. The announcement was totally mumbled and badly managed, Why cant the boarding at Cochin be organised like queues for each zone so that the passengers do not crowd in a mad rush near the gate as if the fliht will leave without them. As in Doha have different seating area for different zones and the ground crew should be trained to be firm to allow only passengers with boarding."
Pros: "Crew were great and sincere"
Cons: "Qatar gave problems changing flight for emergency purpose and had produced all documents but they wanted further documentation which could not have access because at,a foreign country. Felt they don't care and it was all to do with money which had to pay."
Cons: "Seat not very good"
Pros: "All good"
Pros: "Boarding and crew were excellent."
Cons: "Lack of information about the flight delay of 4hr 45 min apart from expected take off time."

Pros: "Nothing. Despite booking Qatar Airways for both legs the transfer distance is incredibly far. Only just made connecting flight!"

Pros: "Polite staff keen to help"
Pros: "Had a great experience with this flight"
Pros: "My trip from Beijing to Doha was fine."
Cons: "I didn't like my trip from Dar to Doha nor from Doha to Dar. The plane is too small. The food wasn't good and they ran out of Mango juice both ways. I sat next to someone who had the smelliest feet on earth. Just wasn't pleasant."
Pros: "In-flight entertainment is excellent. Some of the grew also excellent. Had excellent seat 68d. Lots of leg room. Aircraft looked brand new."
Cons: "6 hour delay with no explanation. No apology. Stuck in transit with nothing to do. Not impressed at all. Boarding also delayed. Food on this flight was very poor."
Pros: "Wonderful staff, service, food and comfort."
Pros: "Always exciting heading into Hamad intl Apt."
Cons: "Small plane heading back into Doha from Dubai. Please change to dreamlimer for the roundtrip. Also, yes we get it, its a short flight. But not all of us are good at making conversation with strangers. You have a quality name, keep with the program" give out headsets, they cost nothing to make in China!"
Pros: "food was decent and the staff on the plane were pleasant."
Cons: "Qatar airlines blatantly lied to me on several occasions and treated me like I was dirt. They lost my baggage and re assigned my seat several times each time pushing me further back into the plane and eventually putting me into a crowded row when the plane was virtually empty."
Pros: "landed safely"
Cons: "Had to claim bags at Doha and go through multiple security screenings to board connecting flight. At one point all the security was not functioning and we were packed up in lines. Barely had time to stop at the restroom before final security check where it was all so disorganized. After that check we were told that if we left we had to go through security again. Would have been nice to know that upfront. It was a madhouse going through that final security check and my husband's wallet was lost for a bit. No one really tried to help and we were told to move aside. Finally someone saw that it had fallen beside one of the counters. It was all horrible. Because of all this our 5 hour layover was a hassle with no time for food, etc. The whole airport experience was confusing and badly handled."
Cons: "The seat didn't have any inflight entertainment"
Pros: "I liked everything about it."
Cons: "My trip was to long but it wasn't there fault. I was so tired."
Pros: "Great personnels!!"
Cons: "Overall nothing but great Service!!"
Pros: "I like the new 350 plane. Comfortable seats, good entertainment and connections. I especially like that you can display cameras from outside the plane on your seat's screen."
Cons: "It was a confusing boarding procedure. We were sorted into zones, but boarded late. So, folks tried to get on all at once. We were in zone 1, and should have been the first economy on, but others just pushed past."
Pros: "Everyone on board was pleasantly and helpful and that goes a long way."
Cons: "The food could be better."
Pros: "Inflight services, food"
Cons: "Wheelchair services in India, person left in between and had to walk with pain in my foot for a distance."

And I booked the flight with this company cos I thought they have a great service, but not what I expected, they didn't provide a wheel chair and she has to drag all the bag with one working arm , so I m not pretty satisfied with the trip at all and I won't fly with th company any more"

Cons: "Everything went well."
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "Free WiFi"
Pros: "It was a less old plane than in my JNB-DXB flight, but still old."
Cons: "The outdated and unresponsive entertainment interface, the lack of legroom under the seats, and the fact that the already-limited legroom for middle seats must be shared, leading to tensions between passengers."
Pros: "I like overall, food , entertainment, cleanliness and the amazing crew."
Cons: "I would fly again with emirates."
Pros: "I am a very tall man, 205cm, and I am always worried when I travel that I would not get the first raw or emergency seat. But Emirates always pays attention to my problem. And the economy class seats on Emirates have more leg rooms than on other airlines."
Cons: "I could not use the onboard wifi on the flight from Jakarta to Dubai (Boeing 777 300er) and from Dubai to Amsterdam (Airbus A380)."
Pros: "Great crew and entertainment"

Cons: "Service and meals were good."

Pros: "Easy check in and comfortable flight. The crew are very helpful."
Cons: "Couldn't get my preferred isle seat or sit with my wife who was in a different row."

Cons: "Restrooms, even before flight took off, smelled of urine like they had not been cleaned. Lines to use them were very long. Leg room SUCKED (and I am not a big person).....maybe 30-31 inches, but my knees were banging up against the seat in front of me!!! I booked this ticket thinking that economy would have more room than US-based carriers and it did not. It did not help to have a very large man spilling over into my seat from the middle seat (although he was very nice....still resent paying for a seat I don't have full "bandwidth" for),"
Pros: "Excellent all round.a"
Pros: "the crew are nice"
Cons: "food limited selection"
Pros: "All of the above"
Cons: "Nothing that i didn't like"
Pros: "The departure and return flight time, for the price I paid, I felt like I was in more than an economy flight. The meal, the baggage quota, the entertainment. The time flew because by the time the movie had finished, we were starting to descend. I will always look for this flight with Emirates. There is no other flight in comparison, in what you get for your Buck. I believe that other Airlines, ie., Qantas, Virgin Aust, both give you a flight and service, for nearly the same fare but you only get 7kg luggage, no meal just the basic entitlement, tea/coffe/water with a biscuit or something like that and NO ENTERTAINMENT, NO COMPARISON!!!!"
Cons: "Before I start my complaint I would like to say that my family and I had 6 emirates flights this year and 5 of those flights were very good and we thoroughly enjoyed our traveling with emirates but this 1 flight came out to be the worse flight of my life. I made online check-in and chose our seats and all was successful but when we reached the airport and I opened my app, it displayed that online boarding pass was not available. After moving slowly in a long queue, when I reached near boarding counters, an official checked my name in a list and informed that there was some new tax applied on us and thus I had to visit counter 5 or 6 to pay that tax. We joined the queue of counter 5 but it was not moving at all and I noticed some people being served at counter 5 who were not in the queue, thinking that counter 5 might take longer, I joined counter 6 queue where there were only 1 family and 1 passenger ahead of me, for next half hour we stood there but that queue didn't move. Finally after some time another counter called me, he confirmed that I had made online check-in. We were given boarding passes and were asked to wait for tax processing, After another 15min, we were given all papers and were requested to move to the immigration counter. After immigration when we were going through final security check, the emirates official asked me to hurry up, I showed him that the security process was going on in front of him, upon that he asked why I was late to airport, I informed him that I made online check-in and I was required to be there 90min before the flight but I was there 150min before the flight and it was in front of him how long the tax processing took, upon that he said that I should have been at the boarding counter 240min before the flight and that I should be aware of the facilities at the airport (although it was my 1st time there). I had not made any complaint on what had happened so far to anyone and I was not rude to anyone although I was with my wife and 1.5 years old son who was crying coz of warn weather and thirst, we couldn't provide him with water coz we were standing in queues all the time. But hearing such comments from Emirates official were quite unbearable but still I stayed calm and reached at the gate. When I handed over the boarding passes, I was told that my boarding pass was missing and I was quickly blamed by emirates officials that either I reached there without a boarding pass or I had lost it. When they checked in their system it showed that I was already boarded, I understood that they gave my boarding pass to someone else but they kept on saying that I had lost it and also informed the same to plane crew, then they made a manual boarding pass for me and let me pass the gate. We were the last passengers to enter the plane. When I reached at my seat, there was someone else sitting there, upon taking attendant's help, it was discovered that the passenger sitting there had my boarding pass."

The TV is on the back of the seat in front of you and is a touch screen. You have to touch pretty hard. So, every time the person behind me was scrolling, they had to hit my seat. I couldn't sleep the entire 16 hours more than 30 minutes. I asked for water to take some medicine and was told it was 30 minutes til food service and to wait. It was over 2 hours before they started food service."

Cons: "Checking, boarding, flighting"
Pros: "Attendants were very pleasant and helpful"
Cons: "The plane was extremely cramped as the seats reclined so far back that it rested on my knees.

The airline also lost our luggage"

Crappy in-flight entertainment with non-intuitive controls. Poor air conditioning. I felt like I was stuffed in a cage for 7 hours. Way worse than United domestic."
Pros: "The gate agents, crew, and food."
Cons: "Entertainment monitor kept stopping, then going, fast forward, then fast reverse. Watched a 1 hour 10 minute movie that took 2 hours 40 minutes to view. I am over 200 cm in height, the passenger in front of me was 163 cm with seat all the way back while sitting on the edge of her seat playing games. The monitor I was watching was about 14 cm from my face. I never put my seat back, but I sure as hell will now. This flight was over seven hours, that is to long to be contorted."

Cons: "Not a specific complaint about this flight but boarding in general is not smooth No online check-in that I could find."
Pros: "The seats in exit row were large enough for me to straighten my legs"

Cons: "Flight from Zurich to Johannesburg: Swiss 288 (airbus a340-300) Sat in the last row of the Swiss air flight, economy, which was okay but our whole row video enternatinment system didn’t work. You’d pick a movie and it wouldn’t play. The games, camera and flight status animation all worked but not the movies. Air hostess tried resetting , still nothing. But it was a great opportunity to have a lovely conversation with my new German Friend Barbara and read my book! More lactose intolerant alternatives for breakfast which had much (cheese, yogurt, croissant) Other than those two , excellent flight. Thank you Swiss!"

Pros: "EVERYTHING WAS AWESOME BEFORE THE PLANE EVEN TOOK OFF!! My flights somehow got real messed up and everything down to my luggage had to be input manually. I wasn't sure if it was going to make it with me to the final destination. But it did! The head rest blew me away just as i sat. I love to know I can fall asleep and not have neck problems. And everything from the movies to the service to the food was great! My first international yet BEST experience in economy class was all worth it!"
Cons: "I liked everything except the airplane itself, which I hated. I was fortunate enough to get an exit row on my long flight going over; I did not get lucky on my way home. The flights between Zurich and Brindisi were more comfortable than the long haul flights. The long haul flights are abominable and should be outlawed by governments as they are currently configured. The boy next to me literally could not fit his legs/thigh bones in the space provided by his seat. I did okay as I am not tall, until the woman in front of me decided to lean back. It is not her fault, however, though I thought nasty things about her and periodically tried to dig my knees into her back to get her to lift up her seat. The fault belongs entirely to Swiss Air, which chooses to treat human customers as steerage. The only thing that made the experience worse was the impossibility of choosing my seat online for my return because I had only a smart phone with not-great wifi available. Choosing one's seat should not be dependent on having good wifi and a computer, however. It is bad practice to "sell" seat choices. The families around me were not able to sit together because of this shoddy, greedy practice on the part of the airline. It is also not fair, subsequently, that other passengers are faced with giving up the seats they've chosen, or been given, to assist families in sitting together. Honestly, the extent of the greed on the part of airlines nowadays is astonishing. What used to be a thoroughly enjoyable way of traveling has become an ordeal at best."

Pros: "Most things were great"
Cons: "Flight was delayed and almost missed my second flight"
Pros: "My upgrade to first class. Service she good is good considering short flights"
Cons: "The fact that they made me check my carry on even though I was in first class. It fit in the plane on my first flight. Why wouldn't it fit on this plane!?"
Cons: "They could not give me an aisle seat which I had requested. The cabin felt as if you were sitting in a tin can. Very restricted for an almost 8-hour flight. Plus arriving in Athens I discovered that my bag was nowhere to be found. I am still waiting to hear from Swiss about my lost valise..."

Pros: "I have been flying to Greece and back many years now. I have never seen,such comfort in a plane,such great service,so many snacks and meals,and the crew was coming by every 30-45 minutes for water. We were served Swiss chocolate and also the best ice cream I have had in my life. Best flight and best plane I have flown in my life."

Some were very friendly and polite."
