Cons: "entertainment sound"

Pros: "Was good"

Pros: "The TVs we’re newer and had a great entertainment selection available for a 12 hour flight"
Cons: "The seats were a very old style. Not very comfortable. Alcohol was required to be purchase which is not typical in international flights of this length."

Pros: "3"
Cons: "Everything"

Pros: "There was a very long line at the check in counter on the way back. Many people were nervous about missing their flights. Apparently the counter computers were out of order and they only had 2 stations to support the passengers at a very busy time. Other than that, everything was smooth and pleasurable."

Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "Paying for WiFi."

Pros: "I fell asleep during the meal service and there was not a vegetarian option left over but the crew was SUPER and brought me some other snacks and made my day. Thanks!"

Pros: "Excellent organization, food and entertainment. Impeccable service."

Cons: "Landed in NY @ JFK with a missing luggage. That happens, I know and it can be ok but the sad thing is the very poor the service offered to take care of it. I have tried to call, no answer, I tried the link they gave me to track progress: NOTHING.... Called customer service, they gave me that number and that link telling me it was the only way!!! I am so frustrated right now!!!"

Cons: "Bathroom not clean"

Pros: "Fast"

Cons: "Had 1 day for quick trip to London. Two hours through security In Geneva and 4 hours late arrival on Swiss at LHR. I can tell you this, the Geneva Airport and Swiss DO NOT run like Swiss Watches. They both get F's."

Cons: "You charge the ticket and my reservation wasn't there!!"

Pros: "The crew members were polite and efficient."
Cons: "There was no climate control. Our rows were freezing cold. People were wearing coats and blankets. Four or five rows up it was warm. My husband asked for more heat and the stewardess said she would turn it up, but nothing happened. Cold air blew out of the ceiling vents for the entire flight. When we reached our gate, we then waited in a long line to have our passports and boarding passes checked again. There were several Swissair crew members, but only one person to check all of the paperwork for economy. Then another long line to show our boarding passes again, while the business class entrance remained unused. Swissair needs someone to manage this better."

Pros: "It's fine no comment"

Cons: "Even one member of the crew was not very nice with my young daughters."

Pros: "ROTTEN SWISS AIR.I WILL NEVER FLY WITH AGAIN!"
Cons: "ARRIVED AT THE AIRPORT AFTER TWO WEEKS HIKING MT BLANC .ANXIOUS TO GET HOME.WHEN I ARRIVE I WAS INFORMED I AM FLYING"STAND BY"KEEP IN MIND I PAID FOR THE TICKETS WHICH I HAD IN MY POSSESSION.YES!I DID BOARD THE FLIGHT BUT FOR ABOUT TWO HOURS I WAS NOT SURE .APPARENTLY SWISS AIR POLICY IS IF THEY OVERBOOK THEY AUTOMATICALLY RELEGATE ECONOMY CLASS PASSENGERS TO STAND BY AND THEN LET THEM GRAVE/BEG FOR THE SEAT YOU ALREADY PAID FOR.I WILL NOT FORGET THIS!40 YEARS OF FLYING THIS WAS A FIRST FOR ME.YOU STINK SWISS AIR!"

Cons: "Lufthansa, (and all other carriers) need to remove a couple rows of seats in economy class and give passengers the space they deserve. Seats on international flights need to be more comfortable also."

Pros: "All was fine on the flight."
Cons: "The woman at the "Groups" check in area on 4/20 Saturday morning had the personality of a cactus needle. She was condescending and sent us on a wild goose chase to pay for our bags. Why didn't she just send us to that area in the first place to take care of the check in process at the same place?"

Pros: "Nice crew and comfortable seats."
Cons: "Not a fan of the sandwich provided."

Cons: "There were not enough vegetarian options, so I had only bread, butter, and dessert."

Pros: "short flight"
Cons: "not much room and no entertainment"

Pros: "The Crew was very helpful, they were always around and offering all kind of help."
Cons: "The food was very cheap, we had no choice for a better offer. We were hungry and had to eat.... The seats were changed at the last minute, we were very upset!!! We did our confirmation on line and get our seats assigned. When we got to the airport we were surprised that they changed them."

Pros: "Everything. The staff were absolutely lovely, the brand new fit out of the 777 is excellent and modern, the entertainment was great as was the food. Overrall really impressed."
Cons: "Nothing."

Pros: "There were many movie choices."
Cons: "The plane was a bit warm."

Cons: "Waited in Luftansa line 9.5 hours to rebook flight after Munich airport shut down for 7 hours. Lufthansa totally unprepared for this situation. Understaffed and unhelpful with directions. Finally got to Los Angeles after 48 hours. Still haven’t gotten luggage 2 days later and no communication on when to expect it."

Cons: "The fact that I was re routed that my flight from Paris was late and made me miss my connection."

Pros: "Courteous staff. Great movies. Good food."

Cons: "We had 30 minutes delay"

Pros: "The food and crew were great.."
Cons: "There was a four hour delay due to a malfunction on the plane in Frankfurt. Upon landing in Atlanta there was no gate to deplane from so we had to sit on the hot plane for over an hour (still sitting as I’m writing this)."

Pros: "Flight delayed leaving, but arrived on time"
Cons: "Food was so-so. Didn’t know wireless headphones were not compatible with inflight movies. Flight attendants seemed grumpy"

Pros: "Crew were professional and friendly"
Cons: "Small seats"

Pros: "I liked the comfort of the seats and the spaciousness of the area allowing for standing out of the way. The service was exceptional and the food on this flight was very good. Entertainment was also very good."
Cons: "My only suggestion would be if the crew would inquire if you've ever flown either with Lufthansa or specifically business Class and just give tips if needed. Other than that, on this leg of our journey we had no complaints."

Cons: "food could have been better especially "breakfast"."

Pros: "Crew was excellent and many passengers were as well."
Cons: "A"

Cons: "It was completely out of the airline's control but we were very delayed due to bed weather in Frankfurt"

Pros: "Pleasant cabin crew."
Cons: "DREADFUL seats for the price. Small, coffin-like affairs packed together like proverbial sardines. I can't believe there are still middle seats for this price on a modern wide body aircraft. I was on the inside and had to step over my neighbor. The food choices were so unappetizing that I opted not to eat. I usually fly SAS business class, and based on this experience with United, I will go straight back to SAS. They offer better service, better menu choices, and first class seating for the same price. Easy decision."

Pros: "Attendes very keen in attend Crew increased the speed to repair the delay"
Cons: "Delay due weather"

Pros: "Flight and attention"
Cons: "Nothing in particular"

Pros: "Flight itself was fine. Some turbulence but that could not be helped"
Cons: "My 6am flight was cancelled while we were waiting in line. No one explained anything. Just went up to desk and I was put on a flight an hour later. But then my bag did not make it I was there in plenty of time to check in. Easy explanation would have helped"

Cons: "A good portion of the time i have flown with lufthansa with a checked bag, something has been damaged. I dont know how hard Lufthansa had to hit or throw my bag to break something wrapped in the center but they did it!"

Pros: "It was clean and it was on time."

Cons: "We sat at a very very bad seats. No space for the legs. And when we wanted to go to the rest room it was so narow we couldn't get out or up."

Cons: "I wish boarding by Priority was better organized"

Cons: "Cancelled"

Pros: "The polite stewards The food and drinks given for free!"

Pros: "Again lufthansa crew one of the best out there thank you"
Cons: "No entertainment but I understand why short flight"

Pros: "Even though we boarded the plan via a bus, I appreciated that business class was given priority boarding the bus."
Cons: "The waiting area was a bit spartan, but quite acceptable."

Pros: "Smooth flight. No delay, no unpleasant surprise."

Pros: "I paid an additional fee for a seat with more legroom....a great investment! Also, crew members were very attentive and courteous."
Cons: "All good"

Pros: "Operated by Lufthansa. Attentive flight attendant. Comfortable seats."

Cons: "I had a short transit time in Munich (40 minutes). Munich website promises that this is possible and that gates are close to each other and if the first flight is late, then someone will help you to your next flight. My first flight was about 10 mins late. Although assistance was provided to people connecting to some of the other flights, no-one helped me with my connection. I asked two ground staff and was just told to make my own way to the next gate, which was not close. It was in a different terminal! After literally running through two terminals, I did not make it to the gate in time and had to wait for the following flight which got me home over three hours late. Lufthansa did give me a five euro meal voucher though (which doesn't buy very much in an airport cafe)."

Pros: "Service was excellent"
Cons: "All would have been great, but the cross Atlantic had a locked seat assignment. I was assigned last row and middle seat, I could not change seat when there were other seats available at check-in. United would not let agents change either. Maybe kayak related? Expedia always allows seat changes"

Pros: "Online check in is efficient, staff both at the airport and on board are friendly and helpful. Seats (economy) are OK. Onboard entertainment is good (good choice of films, TV shows and games)"
Cons: "Food - as usual airline food is mostly inedible and unappealing. I usually eat at the airport before the flight and skip the meal onboard."

Cons: "Customer service and seats/rows extra small"

Cons: "Patronizing crew"

Pros: "Kostenlose Wein, Weinbrand usw. Und Sendungen von Bundeliga. The flight attendants were also very friendly."

Pros: "Impressive service... amazing crew, very friendly and professional"

Pros: "Professional crew. Good simple check in."
Cons: "Nothing."

Pros: "The crew was informative"
Cons: "Inflight sandwiches"

Cons: "Half the screens were not working - crew were made aware but nothing was done. Vegetarian choices were poor to non-existent ; I witnessed crew insist to a passenger that there were no vegetarian options! They finally cobbled something together for him but not a pleasant experience"

Pros: "very nice crew"
Cons: "my baggage was lost"

Pros: "The crew was pleasant"
Cons: "Baggage checkin & flight boarding was slow & disorganized."

Pros: "Just as I expected. And I made my last connection easily."

Pros: "Crew was friendly"
Cons: "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"

Cons: "KLM was not prepared to get wheel chair passenger off plane. Cost me delay of 1 hour. I will never fly KLM again."

Pros: "Service is awesome. Food is great."
Cons: "People with short connection are affected by the 15 to 25 minutes delay."

Cons: "There was no wifi on flight"

Pros: "Good for both."
Cons: "Bigger seats."

Cons: "Flight on time would have been good when you have a late evening arrival. Long wait for luggage at Birmingham airport."

Cons: "Dozens of high school students screaming and climbing onto seats, crew did not intervene."

Pros: "My seat"
Cons: "My suitcase wasn’t in the plane. 8 hours in the plane and no one offered us water. We had to look for flight attendant. Entertainment wasn’t great not too many choices and quality of screens was poor"

Pros: "The crew was great but the seat wasn't as comfortable and didn't have much leg room."

Cons: "If only there was a way to be able to lie down and sleep - you would be pioneers in aviation"

Pros: "Time was excellent even considering a connection delay they had. Very polite crew members. Good entertainment options."
Cons: "Cabin was crowded. Leg room was scarce, short seating space. Almost no room for sleeping if you're not a frequent economy traveler."

Pros: "The crew were amazing and the flight was very smooth."
Cons: "Keep up the good work"

Pros: "Good"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "The flight started with a visit in the recently renovated KLM crown lounge in Amsterdam airport. I liked the various seating options and of course the upstairs bar. The service on board was attentive and efficient, the food options I really liked (especially the Chinese dish) but also the little touches like the nuts & gouda cheese which were served in small porcelain bowls. The seat itself was very comfortable when sitting and the structure gives a lot of privacy. However for couples or friends travelling it's a bit cumbersome to have a conversation even when sitting in seats next to each other. Overall my expectations were fulfilled."
Cons: "This seat is not ideal for sleeping for taller persons (I'm 185cm tall) as the space to put the feet is very narrow and it's uncomfortable when lying on the back (as one cannot put them in the natural resting position). Cabin temperature could have been a bit lower for my taste. Crew needs better training with regards to transfer procedure in Chengdu."

Pros: "The constant smile conferred by flight attendants through the entire flight."
Cons: "The boarding was a bit disorderly. Lanes for zones 3 and 4 were not clearly indicated."

Pros: "Nothing to mention"
Cons: "Crew was rude when I asked if there was a vegetarian option for the snack. I did request special meals for the trip. Even if they did not have a vegetarian option, they don't need to be rude!! Boarding was ridiculous. we were supposed to form a line and wait. Would have been a lot better if they boarded by seat numbers. Also they made me check in my fairly small and light carry on bag resulting in its contents arriving broken!"

Pros: "NOTHING"
Cons: "Having to change my seat to accommodate a rude belligerent passenger, who had taken my seat, refused to move until spoken to by steward. She then made my flight a nightmare, until I let her sit in my aisle seat. Even then she was not satisfied, she abused me the whole flight damaged the screen so I could not use it until the steward fixed it. Demanded that I except any and all alcohol to give to her to drink. When I am tea total she then continued to abuse me. I asked the steward to move me he just shrugged his shoulders and said there was nowhere else. This is definitely my the worst flight I have experienced."

Pros: "Efficient boarding system, clearly signposted. Professional staff"

Pros: "Crew was excellent -kind nice and very attentive"
Cons: "Entertainment went out mid flight. Had to be reset off 30 mins but cam back up"

Pros: "Seat 39A did not recline. The gentleman next to me spread his arms out a bit as he typed on his computer the entire way. So I did not get ANY sleep. Plus he got up at least four times."
Cons: "Except for the man next to me - great!"

Pros: "The seat was spacious and the concept of the evening meal being the lighter option was innovative and well thought out"
Cons: "Boarding was chaotic and congested with not much information or order."

Pros: "Friendly crew."
Cons: "So many people on a 747!!"

Pros: "Good flight, very attentive crew."

Pros: "Good flight, arriving well on time."

Pros: "The seats seemed to have more space on this plane which was nice."
Cons: "It felt strange that the crew members completely skipped over me when serving lunch and drinks. At least something as basic as water should be given to all passengers."

Cons: "Flight departed 35 minutes late"

Pros: "The leg room, was surprisingly roomy"
Cons: "The food and that there was no entertainment."

Pros: "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."
Cons: "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."

Pros: "The aircraft felt clean and quite spacious (decent legroom). Cabin crew was friendly and everything went as expected. Bonus points for the Beemster cheese sandwich (I was totally disappointed when they served the food, but more than pleasantly surprised by the quality of the cheese - I even bought some afterwards, from the Albert Heijn just outside the security area)."
Cons: "Very odd queue separation at boarding. Passengers were divided in 5 lanes, depending on their seating area withing the plane (for a more efficient boarding, I presume) but, by the time we all got to the actual aircraft, we formed another queue in the boarding bridge so it didn't feel like any time was saved or anything."

Pros: "Boarding was as expected, crew & food were ok. Nothing else positive to extract out of this flight."
Cons: "Delayed flight, horrible baggae policy when the flight is actually operated by a partner of the company you bought the ticket from and not the actual company. Dirty seats, no in-flight entertainment whatsoever (not even a magazine)."

Pros: "Short flight with good communication."
Cons: "Nil to complain."

Pros: "Consistently high standards"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Thankful for coffee being served without charge. Not all airlines do that."

Cons: "suitcase didn't turn up, although connection was quite tight"

Pros: "The crew service is impeccable. Ground services very friendly and professional."
Cons: "The seats are very uncomfortable. The individual screens are simply outdated like you basically will damage your eyes looking at them. No chargers for phones."

Pros: "Of the multiple international airlines I recently flew with, I would have to say KLM was by far the best. Relaxing atmosphere, comfortable seating, great in-flight entertainment, although I have the go-go in-flight data/entertainment plan with t-mobile (highly recommended), the flight included a decent selection of movies, television programs, etc. The food far exceeded typical "airline quality," even for an international flight - and included a fabulous little snack box with locally sourced gourmet and specialty items such as chocolate from Belgium, fine cheeses from France, and crackers from England. Drinks = gratis, and crew was exceptionally attentive and went out of their way to make flight as pleasant as possible."
Cons: "Nothing."

Pros: "Great crew service. Among the best ever."

Pros: "It was so easy to board and I had no inconvenience. It took 4 minutes from when I said goodbye to my family till when I was at the front of the gate."
Cons: "Nothing! It was all great!"

Pros: "The constant supply of food that was offered to you. The crew was nice and always helpful."
Cons: "The process of boarding in Amsterdam was not organized and felt more stressful than it needed to be."

Pros: "Boarding was very efficient."
Cons: "Limited movie selection. Crew seemed stressed. Gave me wrong meal and then swaped for the right one. I asked for Diet Coke and was given white wine. Food quality was not good."

Pros: "Service was good"
Cons: "Delay"

Pros: "The crew was very nice and helpful."
Cons: "The space is no longer a respectful space. Paid 32 Euros for my seat, there was not enough space, the man beside me kept jabbing me on the ribs."

Pros: "We love the flight all the way"

Pros: "Having requested assistance due to breaking my leg, the service at Heathrow, Charlotte and JFK with American Airlines was excellent."

Cons: "The transfer was a disaster. We had to go through the security check (even though the transfer was in the Schengen area) and almost missed our connecting flight."

Pros: "I was i business class and the crew were very good"
Cons: "nothing as it was not a long flight, only 3 hours"

Cons: "Boarding began 25 min after the indicated time. Huge crowd of people (big Airbus 330) was standing in the corridor in some kind of disorganized manner. Priority entrance was open, but then another 20-25 min in the closed waiting area, some kind of hoarder. Only then the mixture of all passengers was let through the sleeve to the plane. Why bother about Priority? Plane arrive in NYC 35 min late. Many transit passengers worried about their connecting flights."

Cons: "2 hr delay"

Pros: "This is a great way to travel from Helsinki to Tampere and avoid the railway and train changing."
Cons: "The plane is not comfortable, but the flight is very short. It balances out."

Cons: "Good airline teamed up with crappy American brings them down. Don't waste money!!"

Pros: "I liked everything !"

Cons: "Never made it to Chicago on original flight due to delays."

Cons: "video was broken"

Cons: "The flight from Helsinki arrived 2 hours late to JFK due to mechanical reasons causing some passengers miss their connectiing flights, which is quite normal in airline practice. What was not normal and supper aggravating was the fact that nobody met us at the gate to help us rebook our missed flights. We had to find an AA agent in the departure area and stand in line with other passengers who were checking in to their flight to Jordan. There was no customer service what so ever provided by Finnair."

Pros: "Very nice staff. Probably one of the best flights"

Pros: "I think this airline has an attention to detail and level of service which surpasses most other airlines. Whilst remaining competitive these factors make traveling with Finnair a far more comfortable and attractive proposition for me. In addition, Helsinki airport must be one of the best around."

Cons: "my plane to NY flew off without me and 11 people."

Pros: "I like the crew, the new aircraft, the airport in Helsinki, the business lounge in the airport"
Cons: "There was nothing that I truly disliked. I thought the food was mediocre and the business seat rather lumpy"

Pros: "Decent flight from SFO to HEL, friendly staff ..."
Cons: "Ran out of food options from SFO to HEL. I was sitting towards the end of the plane ... and no more chicken so got stuck with the pork and mashed potatoes options. Need more coffee aboard the flight. ANA cleans the bathroom periodically, and wouldn't be bad to do the same on long flights. The arm rest between seats don't go all the way up, only half way. If the person in front of you is asleep during meal service, the FA (flight attendant) won't lift the seat and it may be a very uncomfortable meal experience. Other airlines will have the FA do it themselves. ...and you need to be careful about staying awake to get food (otherwise you can get forgotten)."

Pros: "The shortest flight time between NYC and St. Petersburg Russia. Good connecting time, smooth transition in Helsinki."
Cons: "I have never used this airline before and as it was highly rated, I was glad to give it a try. The seats were crammed together very tightly, even for me, a short person! So, the flight was uncomfortable. Then the food was poor. The selection of films was uninspired. The service was indifferent, disinterested, ungenerous. There was something meager, miserly in the whole experience. They are obviously maximizing profits at the expense of the customer, who seems totally disregarded. I would not choose this airline again!"

Pros: "The ease at which the check-in and boarding was done"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Great service, staff and punctuality"
Cons: "They changed the plane & seats"

Pros: "Everyone was polite and helpful and did everything to make flight comfortable"
Cons: "Plane tiny and not very comfortable, but the flight time is pretty short so it is not bad overall"

Pros: "Finnair lost my luggage on my way to Sweden. However, they upgraded my seat to Business class during my flight home from Helsinki. It was great!"

Cons: "I don't live in Riga and had pick up scheduled in Rigas airport to take me home to Telsiai, Lithuania. Because flight was delayed and I had to fly to Talin and then to RigaI I arrived at 10pm plus took me another 30min to figure out what happened with my luggage. I am still in Riga waiting for the morning to schedule another ride home. Very long , inconvenient trip ;-("

Pros: "Finnair is great. I travel with a cello and they were terrific! 1. They understand and respect musicians and the anxiety involved in traveling with a large, fragile musical instrument. 2. The staff was very responsive and helpful in answering my questions and concerns. 3. Finnair employees are a totally professional group of people and friendly, too. all the flights were smooth. I've flown a lot and for me Finnsir is always the best choice to Moscow."
Cons: "The experience going was great. Coming home, the plan was old, but it didn't bother me."

Pros: "Great crew and service"
Cons: "Uncomfortable seats. Not only no space to get comfortable but the seats themselves are not comfortable. We had better constructed seats on the hopper from Edinburgh to London. It is unconscionable that long flights are so uncomfortable!"

Pros: "Friendly service, lots of movies, Marimekko design."
Cons: "Seats too close together front to back. If the person in front of you lies down the back of their seat is in your face."

Pros: "Good food, two hot meals."
Cons: "Unfortunately the flight was done by HiFly , not Finnair. Boarding took almost two hours, the whole flight crew behaved is if they were doing everybody a favor by being there. Entertainment options included like 6 movies and 2 tv shows, only 2 movies were more or less new, not much for a 10.30 hour flight. We really enjoyed our experience on the outbound flight with Finnair and were looking forward to this flight also, but Finnair didn't service this flight."

Pros: "Great service, great food, and comfortable seats."

Pros: "Liked seat size and spacing on the Airbus - better than American 777"

Pros: "never happened"

Cons: "Something that was unpleasant was if someone spoke through the announcement system it would be very loud through the headphones if someone is listening to a movie or music"

Pros: "Crew was fine"
Cons: "Our luggage never made it to Rome, our final destination. So now we have no change of clothes - for the next 2-3 DAYS."

Pros: "Food was provided when the flight was delayed for 2 1/2 hours. I also really liked the text update from kayak about the delay. The airline did not keep me updated but kayak did."
Cons: "The delay when it was already a 6 hour flight. I also was not able to reserve a seat because I had booked through kayak and not with the airline. Finally of the most irritating of all annoyance was that there was no movie. This was an international flight and there was no entertainment. I will never fly American Airlines again."

Pros: "It was an Iberia flight, sold by Finnair. Pretty full but I had two seats by window to myself. I really liked the personal entertainment system at each seat, with lots of choices for viewing and listening, plus usb port for charming my phone. Food was not bad for economy class airplane food. Crew was efficient."
Cons: "A bit cramped - could have used more leg room. But not the worst I've had."

Pros: "I was very pleased with the overall experience on the flight from London to Charlotte. The flight itself was very pleasant, the crew very accommodating, & the food, snacks & beverages very good. The entertainment provided was certainly suitable for my tastes & kept me occupied for the majority of the trip. There was also blackout time provided for sleeping. The seats were a little cramped, but overall I rate my experience as very good."

Pros: "Personnel were very nice and fight was comfortable"
Cons: "Received an email 30 minutes before leaving for airport that flight was on time. Went to the airport and found out flight was delayed 4 hours"

Pros: "Movies Food Comfortable seating"
Cons: "Going through security"

Pros: "Nice dinner, drinks, and snack services"
Cons: "Could be a little friendlier. Lights on the whole time during a red eye was pretty annoying. Don't know if this was on purpose or a malfunction. Entertainment system was hard to see and a little outdated."

Cons: "The plane was old. The movies were played in the aisle and the selection was inappropriate/terrible. No kids on the flight and they played a Disney dinosaur movie and the Peanuts movie."

Pros: "9 month old A380 with dedicated flight crew - everything on time - what more is there to ask for?"
Cons: "Airplane meals tend to be carb-heavy and the food service was no exception. Always a roll or bread but this is normal."

Pros: "Other than the fact that it's a direct flight from jfk to Helsinki, there's not much else to like about it"
Cons: "Even though we paid extra for comfort seats, the seats were extremely uncomfortable! Not just the lack of sufficient leg room (especially when the person in front reclined) but most importantly the quality of the cushions. They were like cardboard and extremely uncomfortable to sit on. We were not able to sleep at all due to the discomfort! Additionally, they lost my luggage. It has been more than 24 hrs since I landed and I still haven't heard anything from them as to where my luggage was, when I should expect it why it still hasn't been delivered. Overall, a terrible experience."

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: "The flight left on time, boarding was a breeze, the food was the only good food I've had while flying ever, seating was better than I was expecting, the movie selection was vast and up to date, and we made phenomenal timing in getting to our destination"
Cons: "Checking in online was difficult - it couldn't find my booking. I was panicking three hours before I was scheduled to depart! I was instructed to go check in at the desk by the service rep on the phone, which was straightforward process, but I was half-expecting being told that my booking had been cancelled"

Pros: "Very friendly crew; easy boarding; lunch was tasty; pleasant trip overall."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "I booked this trip thinking it was with a European carrier - I had specifically wanted to avoid an American carrier. I was unable to confirm my flight online and had to ring because at NO POINT was I sent info that it was AA and not Finnair. I was charge almost $60 for this service because I did not have the right references sent with my confirmation email. T he seats were cramped and uncomfortable, I was unable to pick my seat on any flight and despite my request could not change it. Boarding at Chicago was a farce, none of the ground crew seemed to be in charge and we barely started boarding with 20 mins to takeoff. Needless to say the flight left late and we had to wait to take off, and of course had to wait to land in London."

Pros: "Great flight, crew was very nice. I would rebook with British airways."

Pros: "Maybe they should call these flights "Byzantine Airways". Finnair doesn't fly Boston to London, so my Finnair flight was on British Airways, but I did it that way because BA wanted more money that day. As a flight, it was OK. I don't think I have much to say about Finnair."

Pros: "I did not like anything about this trip."
Cons: "Our flight from Chicago to Paris was managed by Finnair, but flown through American Airlines. This was the second disappointing flight on American Airlines. Our first flight was repeatedly delayed over three hours and then canceled. Everyone had to take a new flight the next day on the same plane which was scheduled to be fixed that morning prior to departure. We boarded the plane 45 minutes late and then were informed that the part needed to fix the plan had just cleared customs. After another hour of waiting on the plane, we taxied to the runway and the returned to the gate because another part needed to be fixed on the plane. We waited another hour and a half on the plane before finally taking off. Upon our arrival at Chicago O'Hare, we waited on the tarmac for 30 minutes before the ground crew parked our plane. Which brings me to this flight from Chicago O'Hare to Charles de Gaulle in Paris. Our flight was delayed for maintenance repeatedly for 2 hours and then a new plane had to be brought over. By the time we boarded we were almost four hours behind schedule due to a logbook problem once we boarded the new plane. The plane itself was small - the size of a domestic flight - and VERY cramped. On both of the flights we had no TVs in the headrest. This is something that I have always had in economy class on international flights. It was by far the most uncomfortable flight I have ever been on. Because of the delay, we had to reschedule one of our two connecting flights. I was assured that our bags would still arrive at our final destination. When we finally reached our final destination, we found out that our bags had been lost along the way - most likely because of the flight being rescheduled."

Cons: "This is 2016 and to have planes that don't have in seat screens for entertainment is ridiculous. This was over a 9 hour flight. Won't choose your airline again because of this."

Cons: "Boarding was delayed, flight crew was not very friendly, plane was extremely old and uncomfortable. In flight entertainment was not working for me and many other passengers. Food was very bland and took long to be served. Service and flight in general fell very very short of what I expected."

Cons: "We waited for 3 1/2 hours in the plane before taking off. We ended up landing with a 3-hour delay."
