Pros: "no"
Cons: "respect"

Pros: "Crew was very helpful"

Pros: "Staff were very good . Business class very comfortable. I had low salt menu which was very comforting to be able to choose as salt not good for me."

Pros: "Crew was receptive"
Cons: "Food boarding"

Pros: "Crew is good. Flight got delayed"

Pros: "Crews were excellent. Luggage came out very fast. Flight was very comfortable."

Cons: "Food was just not that great. Too many peppers in everything!"

Pros: "Everything was GREAT!"

Pros: "On time. No problems"

Pros: "Good crew, fair choice of food and drinks and served whenever you want it. Good array of entertainment on offer but our flight was a 'sleeper' so after a fumble with the controls and the limited new releases, I opted to read instead. Not sure we like the Dreamliner configuration and levels of comfort more than the 777 or Airbus offerings but it was fine."
Cons: "A couple on our flight decided it was OK to have their 4-year old run around the cabin shrieking and causing a lot of fuss. Most of us in the cabin complained but these parents were pathetically weak and elected to allow it to continue. No sleep... spoiled experience.. miserable flight in this respect. Terrible Business Lounge 'Aspire' in Gatwick; dirty and poorly equipped - not even Prosecco on offer without paying £5 for a small glass. Qatar should stop using this dreadful place. Crew seemed to have stopped referring to the passengers by name and offer a less-personalised service in Business than we have become accustomed to. The food choices while good, have been paired back as have the selection of wines."

Cons: "Internet bad"

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

Pros: "Everything"

Pros: "Qatae Airways is second to non as always"

Pros: "Very comfortable wii sleeping compartment"

Pros: "Did not provide hotel even in a 10 hours lay over. The security personel does not know how to behave with passengers."

Pros: "Comfortable, on time"

Cons: "The planes weren't as comfortable as others I've been on like the double deckers of Emirates. Their economy class was NOTHING special. Everyone talks about how superior Qatar is, but I found nothing special about it...the seats, the food, the entertainment were all basic and nothing fancy. The crew, while very sweet, seemed inexperienced and green to me..but they were lovely and that's all that ultimately matters."

Pros: "Excellent service from the crew. Flight on time."

Cons: "I had a long trip and as a result I had lost my voice, and the crew had no patient at all. I feel like she just wanted to check the box instead of really making sure I got what I wish for food wise."

Cons: "Some crews are not accommodating."

Cons: "While stay in Doha the did not give any food vochcher for 21 hours what they think no body eat in 21 hours I go to counter they refused next time I will not travel"

Pros: "Stewardess (Thai origin) - can't recall her name... Simi something or another... was very helpful... great experience!"

Pros: "The crew was very nice"
Cons: "Not that there is much to be done, but the passengers behind me had a small child and continued to ask me to move my seat and asked the flight attendant to ask me to move my seat up as well so that she and her grandson could have more room. However the gentleman in front of me had his seat back, so I was fairly uncomfortable for most of the 13 hour flight."

Pros: "SPECIALLY THE CREW SERVICE EXCELLENT"

Pros: "Service & cleanliness."
Cons: "Nothing I remember."

Pros: "Considering how long it was, not much could have been better. It wasn't too crowded, so the seat next to me was free, which made getting some sleep easier."

Pros: "Clean plane, esp. the bathrooms. Sufficient bathroom amenities. Attendants always checking bathrooms for cleanliness. Very friendly attendants yet not overpowering. This flight, the films are a bit better but still not the most recently films are on offer. Nobu's seafood soup noodles was the best!"
Cons: "Not interested in the menu's main courses. Fruits were not sweet at all. Must improve on your cappuccino. Nobu's seafood soup noodle did not come with chopsticks."

Pros: "Qatar is not glitzy. Better than that, it was straightforward and relaxed and comfortable. Crew was pleasant and helpful."

Pros: "The crew, they were very pleasant and good about taking care of our needs."
Cons: "The middle console video went out on my husband at the end of the flight, while he was watching a movie. This also happened on the earlier flight from Singapore to Doha."

Pros: "everything!"

Pros: "I was incredibly impressed with the on board crew. They were kind, efficient, courteous, thoughtful, and charismatic. They made the LONG flight enjoyable and extra comfortable. :)"

Cons: "They supposed to provide Wheel chair for my elderly mother in Law who had a foot fracture, was very hard /painful to walk. I confirmed the wheelchair option well advance before her travel date in Qatar Airways Web site. I got the confirmation also in the Qatar Airways Web site. I usually fly with my family as I have a big family with couple of children and elderly. I will never fly Qatar again, this was the 1st and the last fly with Qatar airways."

Cons: "I am hard of hearing. It would be appreciated it you would offer more movies with English subtitles."

Pros: "Great Crew, seat space was great too"

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

Cons: "This is my first flight with Turkish Airlines. It is much better than every Europe Airline company. Until the Covid19 pandemic is over I will not fly to Europe with any European company. Turkish Airline are that good. On top of that you get to transport two big bags of luggage for free."

Cons: "Good"

Pros: "Good attention to detail."
Cons: "Seat controls panels need updating. Are also dirty."

Cons: "None"

Cons: "na"

Pros: "never turkish airlines ever again!"
Cons: "never turkish airlines ever again!"

Cons: "The airport staff in Istanbul was horrible. Wouldn't help find the gate until the last second. After arriving in JFK. We're stuck on plane on tarmac for 3.5 hours "waiting for a gate" unacceptable."

Pros: "I am not blaming the airline at all for these inconveniences."
Cons: "NOTE: THIS IS NOT A CRITIC OF THE AIRLINE Having personally experienced the latest in the consequences of travel related rules mandated by US public officials, I am yet again left wondering if they, and their families, go through these rules that they impose on the general public. Or if they just breeze into their private airport wings and planes. I doubt they take off shoes, belts, and such, or go through irradiated machines. But going through about 3 extra layers of security while transiting is a bit much. Not to mention the extra hours spent relinquishing and reclaiming laptops etc. Frankly, non of these acts makes anything safer. It is akin to the permanently parked police vehicle on the Brooklyn Bridge in NYC since 9-11. What is that supposed to deter?"

Pros: "Interior of the plane"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Everthing was great. I wish US domestic airlines were even half as good"

Pros: "Everything"

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Excellent"

Cons: "it's not so much the airline's fault. they don't have US immigration desk at Istanbul airport, and going through immigration at JFK can take ages."

Pros: "Other than the late departure, everything else was excellent."
Cons: "Just the fact that we were some 40 minutes late, and this created panic among those passengers who had tight connections to Tehran, Tel-Aviv and Tbilisi. The rest was excellent!"

Pros: "All"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "surpassed our expectation"

Pros: "great company."

Pros: "Wonderful experience"

Pros: "x"
Cons: "x"

Cons: "Lost my bag. Again no gate number from Instambul to NY."

Cons: "Late baggage"

Pros: "evrting"

Pros: "US government sends out travel advisories in timely fashion"
Cons: "Turkish airlines is overwhelmed with schedule changes. They behave in a manner not respecting the gravity of the situation and the need for people to get home. For example, they rescheduled our flights but did not confirm or ticket our flights. They should use all resources to get us home but won't let us fly on Star Alliance code share flights."

Pros: "Good in general"
Cons: "Delayed flights"

Pros: "I like every thing"

Pros: "Great staff"
Cons: "Departed late, landed late, baggage claim took over an hour and half"

Cons: "Boarding process is never good. Obviously need to board the plane from the back to the front in reverse numerical order."

Pros: "The crew should serve passengers better and nicer."
Cons: "No more delay."

Cons: "Lost bags"

Cons: "I was not expecting to get on a full 8 hour flight with no meal unless I pay for it. Although the mistake on purchasing a flight without meal may come from my end, this logic of having to pay for a meal is not ideal whatsoever, this should never happen, especially when going on a 8 hour flight, meals should always be included regardless! never heard of this ever in my life of using westjet for 7 years , very disappointed."

Cons: "No inflight meal, no inflight entertainment for 10 hrs onboard."

Pros: "Space"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "Lack of food for long haul flight. Had to pay to eat. 43 dollars and only able to pay with debit/credit card rather than cash"

Cons: "The delays, better coffee brand"

Pros: "Crew"
Cons: "Delay"

Cons: "Ticket was purchased and flight was immediately delayed."

Pros: "Timing"

Pros: "On time"

Cons: "Charging customers for meals on a transatlantic flight is a terrible way to nickel and dime your customers for the most basic provisions. Not all travellers carry accepted credit cards, including the woman sitting beside me. Because it is so common (formally standardized) for airlines to provide food on longer flights, many travellers assume their WestJet flight will the same and arrive unprepared. I normally love WestJet for their customer service, but these flight attendants talked down to customers with legitimate questions. I am choosing another airline for my next international flight, although reluctantly so - I hope to see some changes from WestJet for a more comfortable flight."

Pros: "I didn't!"

Cons: "Need more variety in snacks on the longer trips."

Cons: "Haven’t yet reached our destination, it’s our honeymoon and would have hoped to have got ther by now instead of which we are having to layover in Vancouver until the next flight because of delays on first Leg of journey we missed connecting flight"

Pros: "The crew. Very friendly and helpful"
Cons: "The food. Pizza was bad."

Pros: "The flight attendants were wonderful. The macaroni and cheese was tasty."
Cons: "The plane is so old that you can only use the entertainment system on your phone, which gets tiring to hold up in front of you. Even though I was on a 10 hour flight, meals were not provided."

Pros: "Comfort and legspace"

Pros: "I liked the fact that boarding was a good experience"
Cons: "The fact that the plane was supposed to land at 3.35pm and we actually landed at 4:40 and for some reason we waited to get off the plane with no apology from anyone. The service was not satisfactory and they broke our stroller."

Cons: "slight delay in takeoff but otherwise good"

Pros: "Very fast today"
Cons: "Man these flights are boring"

Pros: "Everyone we encountered after walking into the airport were lovely, helpful and just really nice."

Cons: "snow caused my flight to be cancelled instead of the direct flight to nyc i flew via Atlanta. due to the timings of the flight - landing at 2.30 am, leaving at 7.30 am - i had no option but to sleep on the airport floor i will try to avoid fliying with westjet in future - staying loyal to air canada - to avoid the risk of such a terrible flight diversion"

Cons: "The snacks were awful."

Cons: "Non comfortable cold sensation."

Pros: "Plane was clean"
Cons: "Waitjet did not perform preventative maintenance and had to change a tire at Gatwick delaying flight by 2 hours with terrible/late/inaccurate information about when flight would resume = FAIL Result was overnite in Toronto. Lets see how the 6:45 (3446) goes ?"

Pros: "Price!"
Cons: "But who knew, that I was going to go to Toronto! I now understand your schemes. You gave a cheap deal, but did not tell me why. Never again Kayak."

Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "TRANSITION IN BOARDING INTO DUBLIN TO USA LITTLE CONFUSION WORRY ABOUT BOARDING ON TIME"

Pros: "Their hospitality was far beyond any other airlines."

Cons: "Late departure on way back"

Cons: "Most airlines do boarding by letting people who seat in the back of the plane first. Air Lingus let all people go in at the same time which causes chaos."

Cons: "Service on board"

Cons: "Because I didn't make it and I want my money back"

Pros: "I wish more companies would run like Aer Lingus. Flying is usually very unpleasant. Aer Lingus was Great!!"

Cons: "I requested an aisle or window seat and was not able to get one."

Pros: "nothing"
Cons: "it was cancelled"

Pros: "Aer lingus in New York finally resolved problem"
Cons: "Needed to add my infant son to return leg of flight. He did not need a seat (lap infant) just a ticket. Neither JustFly or Aer Lingus (Dublin) could/would do this. Each said it was the others job. Eventually Aer Lingus office in New York added my son to flight. There seems to be a disconnect / confusion between airline and booking company regarding this matter."

Pros: "Yes"

Cons: "No AC and awful smell"

Pros: "The crew were very nice."
Cons: "The chairs were a bit uncomfortable"

Pros: "We arrived only about an hour late?"
Cons: "We boarded late which seems to be the norm for Iceland air. Usually when an airline is a few minutes late departing they try and explain why and then make up the time, but we received no explanation for the late boarding, or the even later departure, or for why we lost even more time in the air."

Pros: "Not a lot."
Cons: "Boarding via bus just takes forever, get a legitimate jet bridge. Also the airport has about 20 seats at each gate for 80+ passenger planes, leaving a lot of people sitting on the floor."

Cons: "See above"

Cons: "The seat bottom cushion was extremely uncomfortable."

Pros: "I loved that when I checked in online I was given the opportunity to take a seat with extra leg room. Service was great."
Cons: "The connection in Reykjavik does make the flight from Gatwick to Washington rather long but it also gave me the opportunity to see some new views and stop off for a tour on a previous flight."

Pros: "Ok price"
Cons: "No checked bags included, but this was unclear at the time of purchase, even though it was an international flight."

Pros: "Loved the personalized tv in front of me and plenty of space above me in the middle seats!"
Cons: "There were no snacks"

Pros: "Inexpensive tickets"
Cons: "No inflight meals"

Pros: "Poor communication. Old planes. Late departures and arrivals. And the staff has zero f@;$s to give."
Cons: "See above."

Pros: "Hard to say what I liked as my experience was soured right from the onset"
Cons: "I was surprised by being charged almost $100 to check in my luggage, and over $100 on my return leg. (Yes! I could have looked at their baggage policy, but there was no glaring notification alerting me to this fact when I purchased the ticket, nor when I was checking in online) Then, I was further surprised that you had to pay for food on board. This was a first. I mean, on an international long distance flight? Everything became mediocre after these, and I mentally swore off flying this airline ever again."

Pros: "On time, comfortable, smooth and easy flights"
Cons: "Everything was fine no complaints"

Pros: "The lights in the cabin were great set up to look like the Aurora"
Cons: "Offered 1 drink and no snack. Rarely do you see the crew on their flights"

Pros: "After a long journey overall, it was nice to have an easy plane ride to Iceland!"
Cons: "N/A"

Cons: "Again, there was no jet bridge to board the plane in Reykjavik. When we arrived in New York, it took 1.5 hours for our bags to arrive on the baggage carousel. That is an absurd amount of time to wait for your bags, especially when the crew's bags were unloaded from the plane within 30 minutes of landing."

Pros: "Better movies assortment and also TV Cooking newtwork"

Pros: "Everything that was under Icelandair's control went great! Got an unexpected upgrade on both legs of my flight, the cabin was comfortable, and it had a good selection in-flight entertainment for a budget airline."
Cons: "No food is served--be sure to pack a snack. If you're planning to eat in Reykjavik, bear in mind that airport food is especially expensive in Iceland."

Cons: "Reykjavik Airport was the worst for lines, delays, and boarding, You are bused to and from the terminal/plane."

Cons: "It's in my opinion obscene not to provide any type of food on a 6-hour flight that you don't have to pay for"

Cons: "Extensive delays"

Pros: "Bird struck plane that we were about to board; maintenance crew thankfully determined to switch planes even though it would cause delays. Rather be safe than sorry!"
Cons: "Our checked bag never showed up at customs bag claim in NYC. To date (5 days after we arrived back home) the airlines still cannot locate our lost bag. In fact, our baggage tracking # was never registered under our names at check-in!!! Our delayed flight from Reykjavik caused us to miss our connecting flight back home, which the airline booked us in a hotel, but booked us in a hotel near LaGuardia even though flew into JFK. We never received our vouchers and were given verbal instruction. We had to arrange transportation ourselves to seek reimbursement later on, learning this after going from terminal to shuttle area, back to terminal after waiting for the shuttle that never arrived. Rooms weren't ready when we showed up at hotel at MIDNIGHT. Next day, domestic tickets could not be issued for our connecting flight, causing us to have to shuffle from terminal to terminal to resolve the ticketing issue with Iceland Air. Total nightmare of a trip."

Pros: "The best part of the flight was the crew"
Cons: "Overall food was average, entertainment definitely needs to be improved"

Pros: "Friendly staff."
Cons: "Flight delayed. Long lines."

Cons: "The boarding area was too crowded, as it was full of passengers waiting for another flight that left from the same gate a few minutes before the flight to NYC. This was the first time I experienced a transatlantic flight where no food was included with the ticket. Annoying that they kept interrupting the films to make announcements, first in Icelandic, then in English, of things I didn't care to know."

Pros: "They left on time and arrived on time."
Cons: "Maybe, if not a meal, some snacks."

Cons: "Airport in Iceland severely overtaxed. Too many panes and people, not enough infrastructure"

Pros: "New planes nice staff"
Cons: "Uncertainty of arrival connection, we have a flight in a month with a tight return schedule. It was disconcerting."

Pros: "The service was superior. They made sure my younger daughter were occupied and gave a small gift and snack. The movies were great way to pass the time, overall experience were great! We would be a return customer for sure!"
Cons: "Nothing really, we are very pleased!"

Pros: "Staff was very nice and I loved that I actually didn't' have to pay for luggage. I was also offered a free drink."

Pros: "Very small seats and NO snacks or meals were given - unheard of for an international flight"

Pros: "Poor check inn , bad lounge , seats are worst ,food even dig can not eat , plane in bad shape airport in Iceland worst in works"
Cons: "Everything I do not like"

Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "There is only food for purchase on this long flight, and they ran out of vegetarian option before they got to me."

Pros: "See previous review.. Best of the best."

Pros: "I loved the informative videos about Iceland! I had planned to watch them all, but my video screen stopped working for awhile. I thought about switching seats, but I ended up sharing headphones with my boyfriend and watching some movies instead."

Cons: "Baggage claim took over 1 hour."

Cons: "I paid a lit of money for the flight from JFK and there was no food on the plane."

Cons: "The attendant taking our tickets to board was very obnoxious. I complained to the crew chief who agreed her behavior was unprofessional."

Cons: "The seats in premium economy were extremely uncomfortable and because of this I doubt I will be flying Icelandair ever again."

Pros: "I was worried due to the negative reviews about the airline , but the flight was on time, the cabin comfortable, the crew friendly, and the ride was smooth."
Cons: "I didn't like that they didn't serve a meal or man the flight, but that's what you get when flying a low cost carrier. No frills."

Cons: "Boarding was unorganized."

Cons: "Seat 8G does not have a window."

Cons: "When we arrived at Keflavik airport the terminal was immensely crowded with several flights due to leave the US at once. It was overcrowded to the point of being uncomfortable and there was a 30min+ wait to buy food from the only shop. As a result we did not have time to grab a bite to eat between flights. My partner was subjected to additional TSA checks which I am aware is a random check and a nescessity but due to the amount of flights departing for the US this took an extra hour, and delayed our flight. I'm thankful that Iceland Air didn't leave without us but it was an immensely stressful experience that I don't wish to go through again."

Pros: "Seat was comfortable"
Cons: "In addition to the above when i finally got to JFK my luggage was still lost"

Pros: "Boarding was easy. The seats were comfortable & there was tons of legroom, so much so that when the people next to me had to get up to use the restroom I didn't have to stand up to let them by."
Cons: "For a 6 hour flight they didn't offer any free snacks and had limited free options for drinks."

Pros: "Nice to have free beverages, USB outlets, good customer service."
Cons: "Not enough leg room; had to switch seats so family could sit together; meals still cost extra on international flights"
