Short flight but no entertainment...bring your own.
Plussat: "missed the next flight due to problems at Frankfurt Airport. No stairs or busses available"
No screen map on in front of you to track the flight like Turkish air! No food or coffee for 2h30 just a small plain water and a very small piece of chocolate🤔
Lufthansa‘s Crew was exceptionally polite, helpful, quietly serving food and performing tasks placed on them. I appreciate their professional attitude . I loved getting a pillow and a blanket, which had at other airlines been a problem. Food was served quickly, as well as drinks. Thank you for all the work you do!
Plussat: "Vegetarian option of the food. Constant hydration"
Plussat: "Helpful crew Good food"
Miinukset: "Our luggage came back damaged and open !"
Plussat: "The crew is brilliant Punctual, spot on... 100% service delivery"
Plussat: "The pilot pointed out the Alps as we flew over. It was an early flight most were sleeping and we would have missed it had he not mentioned it."
Miinukset: "Nothing all was good"
Plussat: "Everything was excellent"
Plussat: "Airbus 330 from Manchester to SFO was new, spacious and very comfortable. One of the best flights we’ve had across the pond."
Miinukset: "Transiting at Manchester between our Frankfurt to SFO flights was dreadful. They made us go through security and the inspectors were so incompetent they caused a huge back-up. Took an hour to get through. Avoid Manchester. Then they lost my luggage...still missing after a week."
Plussat: "Not and horrible waited for 10hour before we board the last journey"
Miinukset: "Is horrible will not use kayak again we want to change the flight we were told not changeable"
Plussat: "Just about brand new Airbus airplane, very nice! Everything worked, seats reasonably comfortable for a long flight. Boarding worked well by area of the plane, friendly crew."
Plussat: "Terrible flight. Super tight seats. Major airport delay to take off and land. Overall not a good experience."
Plussat: "Crew very good"
Miinukset: "Could not check in online or get seat reservations in advance (other flights for journey allowed us to choose seats when we booked flights). This meant we were sitting separately and groundstaff suggested we were on standby, which we definitely weren't! Very irritating and unnecessary."
Plussat: "We got two drinks, I had an empty seat next to me which made things more comfortable"
Miinukset: "Add an entertainment system, better food, there shouldn’t be a long wait to get a drink after your meal and maybe serve water with the meal. There wasn’t too many shops in the airport"
Miinukset: "Highly recommended for efficiency"
Miinukset: "I was trying to extend my ticket but no one was answering my call last 2 days so I misssed my flight no refund nothing"
Miinukset: "The Cabin seating"
Miinukset: "40 minute delay in departure due to late arrival of incoming aircraft."
Plussat: "Superhyvin hoidettu nopea vaihto - auto haki ja vei meidät jatkolennolle. Tunnelma henkilökunnan keskuudessa oli hyvä."
Miinukset: "Ihan tajutonta kuinka koneeseennousu kesti niin kauan ja kone oli myöhässä."
Plussat: "Not a long flight, overhead lockers had space although I wasn't helped to find somewhere. Crew lovely otherwise."
Miinukset: "Boarding from a connecting flight wasn't enough time, esp as our duty free purchases were selected for additional screening. Food was identical to what we had been offered on previous flight, and the outbound one."
Plussat: "The bathrooms were always clean. The staff curious and attentive, food was ok. Overall very goid"
Plussat: "on time, great cabin crew"
Miinukset: "Flight was delayed more than 1 hour 30 minutes"
Plussat: "The flight was nice and the people were friendly and good"
Miinukset: "My stroller’s leg got broken and I did report"
Plussat: "Love the entertainment and meals"
Miinukset: "Manchester Airport couldn’t organise a bus to take us off the plane. Stuck on a landed plane for ever."
Plussat: "The service. Smooth flight."
Plussat: "The crew was nice"
Miinukset: "The boarding process and the fees"
Plussat: "Not much at all"
Miinukset: "I was enquiringly about the transfer of my luggage from the Hurghada flight with sunexpress with one of the Lufthansa correspondents at the central fest and the guy was absolutely clueless. Needless to say- our luggage wasn’t in Manchester when we arrived. Had to travel back to Manchester to collect it 8 hours later as it was left in Munich. Not happy one bit"
Plussat: "Left on time, arrived on time. Efficient service."
Miinukset: "None. The seats on this Airbus 320 were more comfortable on this leg than on the transatlantic leg of the journey."
Plussat: "Both parts of flight was superb n/a"
Plussat: "Good connection time and easy to get through security"
Miinukset: "Passports had to be checked and it delayed boarding. Everyone was frustrated"
Plussat: "Everything! The service of the flight attendants, in full ugh entertainment."
Miinukset: "Everything was great. I would say that I didn't like the automation and self serve check in at Munich Airport not because it wasn't easy or efficient, but because I love human interactions. I know this is the way society is tending, towards automation, but I don't love it. I prefer to speak to a real person. Thank you for reading."
Plussat: "Service is good, you actually get food and drinks, thanks for that."
Miinukset: "The seats in the economy class are too small. Not once did I have someone sitting next to me who could actually fit in his seat. They weren't particularly large people, just average men but their arms were in my space all the time. Also if I drop something, I cannot pick it up, there's no room. For transatlantic flights the seats should be bigger."
Plussat: "Good choices were great and tasted great also.."
Miinukset: "seats not so comfortable"
Plussat: "Changed planes, flight didn't get cancelled"
Miinukset: "2 hour delay"
Miinukset: "By the time my daughter got through security the gate had closed and her ticket didn't allow for any opportunity for her to get another flight. Would not book again using Lastminute.com, nor Lufthansa, as they provided a lack of service and no help for her to change her flight - even though the ticket was nearly €200 and she was clearly distressed and upset."
Plussat: "Crew was friendly both in flight and check in area."
Miinukset: "My entertainment screen wasn't working at all from Washington DC to Munich! Also, I searched Lufthansa's website to order "Halal Food" but there was no option for it! I talked to one of the crew about it, she said that I needed to call to order in advance, but she was nice enough to offer vegetarian food as a substitute which was okay."
Plussat: "Overall, was good!"
Plussat: "as usual flight itself was okay"
Miinukset: "no major complaints"
Plussat: "my favorite airline"
Plussat: "The crew was great. The seats were ok."
Miinukset: "Check in was very, very slow, for some reason."
Plussat: "nice services."
Miinukset: "no order in boarding and no chairs in Panama airport. Had to stand for 2 hours before boarding."
Miinukset: "No seating area at or near the gate we boarded at, and as boarding was delayed, many people ended up standing for some time because we did not wish to wander too far and then be late for boarding."
Plussat: "Very friendly and accommodating crew, efficient service, nice breakfast pastry for the short flight to Frankfurt"
Miinukset: "Would have been nice to have an entertainment option, but I had a book, so the 2.5 hrs went fast enough."
Plussat: "Service was good, boarding was fast, no other issues."
Miinukset: "The seat pitch is inhumane. I could barely fit into the seat without hitting my knees on the seat in front. And that was before the person ahead of me reclined. It's not like Lufthansa is a budget airline. It's a full-fledged major carrier charging full-fledged prices. Seriously, I was expecting more."
The crew was amazing and we would go out of our way to fly SAS again
Seats were like bus seats; good food; overall okay.
Did not like anything about the flight Did not get economy plus that I paid for
Plussat: "Kummatkin lennot olivat ajallaan ja kaikki onnistui sujuvasti ja nopeasti. Ekalla lennolla ( HEL - > ARN ) henkilökunta oli huippu!!"
Miinukset: "The check in staff at the gate could have been more friendly and paid better attention to customer care. I was standing in front of the counter with a simple Question but had to wait 5 minutes before the two agents got done with their own personal chat and thought about attending to me."
Miinukset: "Last minute change of boarding gate led to a dash across the airport!"
Plussat: "Professional and courteous crew"
Miinukset: "Nothing, was a pleasant flight"
Plussat: "- Good entertainment - Boarding on time"
Miinukset: "- Airplane food - I know it's not going to be mind-blowing, but the breakfast was salad and a fruit cup which, for a vegetarian meal, is particularly unappetizing"
Miinukset: "From Helsinki to Stockholm I missed my flight because we boarded late. Once in Stockholm I had to take two different planes for my destination and in result loosing time"
Miinukset: "I was unable to make it to copenhagen due to missing my connection"
Plussat: "For a middle seat, it wasn’t bad"
Miinukset: "The seat I selected was changed. I selected 45C and was assigned 54 E Upon check-in. Why? An aisle seat vs middle seat when I paid full faire is unacceptable. Also it was not made clear that I would have had to pay to check luggage. $120??!!!! I always carry on and this could have been easily avoided by not bringing gifts. Again, $120?!!!!! On top of an $1100 flight? You have to be kidding me."
Plussat: "on time"
Miinukset: "food selection"
Plussat: "Very accommodating crew"
Miinukset: "The flight was more than one hour delayed."
Miinukset: "Rerouted without consultaton - added an extra leg to my trip including a necessary mad dash to catch the make-up flight."
Plussat: "The travel magazine was excellent. Flight attendant wasn't rude, but I didn't find him friendly or welcoming. He gave tea/coffee and water to both of the men sitting with me but not me even though I asked for it. One of the men gave me his water and told the attendant I had asked for one."
Miinukset: "Handling of delay: - Massive delays and time wasted with individual case handling at the transfer centre in CPH when a more efficient group/bulk handling of passengers on the same flight with similar cases would make more sense. Handling of baggage during the delay. Un-necessary additional delays with baggage handling due to poor management."
Plussat: "Pleasant and safe flught"
Plussat: "No comment since very short flight."
Miinukset: "My husband was unable to check in on line. SAS when contacted by phone which was difficult to do because it is hard to locate their number had no explanation other than maybe due to security. We missed a tour due to the time spent (unsuccessfully) trying to solve this problem."
Plussat: "A good and safe flight"
Miinukset: "I'm very dissapointed about SAS food-service. One can't get even the simplest Bisquit without playing. Most other companies I fly with serve food for Free."
Plussat: "Great flight, on time great crew."
Plussat: "Everything about the flight was fine. Boarding, flying and retrieving luggage were all standard and went smoothly."
Miinukset: "I was upset that neither Kayak nor SAS provided any information about our ticket being a basic, basic ticket, by which I mean, did not include any checked luggage allowance in the price of the flight. I ended up paying 140 additional Euros for two bags. It appears that SAS's pricing is gaming the system when searching for flights or that Kayak is not being up-front about the type of fare they are advertising."
Plussat: "Easy boarding"
Miinukset: "Seat width"
Miinukset: "Should at least serve some water"
Plussat: "My Plus ticket brought me an excellent cold lunch despite the shortness of the flying time (only 1:10). The seats need more recline!"
Miinukset: "I took this flight to have a short layer over, only 40 minutes. This was a connecting flight departed from Newark and was a connecting flight for many people coming from Thailand. I almost missed this flight due to highly backed up passport control. If SAS was running so many international flights, they should have shifted the layer over, since many people were taking connecting flights for Oslo to Manchester. No food, there should have at least been a snack or at a minimum offered water."
Plussat: "Nice planes with all the basics you need"
Miinukset: "Terrible food"
Miinukset: "I order through Kayak, which took me to priceline...Got my ticket and thought everything was fine...Until I got to the airport, apparently I got a SAS lite ticket and they charged me to check 3 bags 210 Euros...Unreal. I think its pricelines fault because they did not even offer bagage as an option..."
Plussat: "Great flight very happy"
Plussat: "Quick flight"
Miinukset: "1 hour delays and 70 euro bag fee"
Plussat: "The movies."
Miinukset: "My selected seat was broken and I was moved to a seat directly on the side of the toilet. Not nice!"
Plussat: "Front of the plane was business level service - back more like low cost. But the same staff numbers as low cost."
Miinukset: "Boarding very slow. Staff a bit inattentive"
Plussat: "Nothing to be honest"
Miinukset: "Checkin was a disaster, girl was not aware of anything she was doing and after over ten minutes of explainatiin she still put me and my bags on a wrong flight. Lady at the boarding gate tried to help and finally managed to send me and my bag in the same flight. Even bigger disappointment was that I booked a business class seat and paid three times more money then a normal economy ticket, there wasn't any business class seat and all seats were occupied in the front rows. Staff was generally rude and not willing to help."
Miinukset: "When we booked there was no mention of paying for the checked in luggage. When we showed up at the airport we were told to pay the inflated $75 for each bag. It was ironic since it was 6am flight and the plane was half empty. It left a bad taste for us and we are not sure if it was kayak fault or sas."
Plussat: "Up and down. Crew was great!"
Miinukset: "Out of all the staff on board they did not give me and a few others those blue customs form, so we made a huge line and when we got to the agent he told us we had to go all the way around fill one out and then come back. The attendants new that those were necessary why so many yet not one made sure we got them lousy service. I wish we got a crew that wasnt so insecure and cared more about providing a good service instead of caring so much over their appearance. I rather have good efficient staff what they look like doesnt matter to me."
Miinukset: "my flight from stockholm was delayed and there was a massive queue at border control and no SAS or airport staff to organise to get PAX through faster so they dont miss their connection I had to fight my way through the queue otherwise I would have lost my connection"
Plussat: "The flight was good : excellent pilot and crew. Good takeoff and landing. Short but sweet flight."
Miinukset: "Leg room is a nit short for tall people. Everything else was great."
Plussat: "Short flight, friendly crew."
Plussat: "Was upgraded to business class"
Plussat: "Food, WiFi and cheap business upgrades"
Miinukset: "Delay and lost baggage both ways."
Plussat: "Easy embarkation, helpful staff."
Miinukset: "Shock to discover that suitcases were not included in price of tickets purchased online. We had to pay the equivalent of $100 (australian) per case. My seat was extremely u comfortable as the cusihion was misshapen. The male passengers seated behind us were drinking alcohol and became loud and garrulous, making the trip most uncomfortable and unpleasant."
Miinukset: "instead of cophenhagen to boston, i was re-routed copenhagen to gothenburg to munich to frankfurt to boston.... the cancelled flight was on july 6 2016; i arrived home more than 24 hours behind plan i spent at least 5-6 hours in lines, went thru security 4 times....."
Plussat: "Entertainment system is very good - like 100 movies on demand even games available."
Miinukset: "Economy seats had little leg room; weren't offered a choice of entrees Make sure you call ahead if you need vegetarian meals."
Plussat: "All of it."
Miinukset: "None of it."
Plussat: "New seats and entertainment consoles. Smooth flight."
Miinukset: "The food!"
Miinukset: "Crew at check-in at ARN extremely unhelpful. Got conflicting advice on how to check in my back pack. The whole chaos resulted in the fact that my back pack never arrived in CPH. Nobody helped me much at CPH airport as well. I had to personally go to CPH airport to pick up my luggage the next day. No compensation was offered. I was really disturbed."
Plussat: "The flight was on time; boarding was straightforward."
Plussat: "It was impossible to contact with sas, so we had to pay for another fligt with Norway air. Wr found a fliht only a day after so we also had to pay almost 450€for the hotel. Now we try to contsct sas to get all the money we lost. Can you help? I gess that if we booked a flight by avent he would take care of all this expences. Chava"
Plussat: "Overall the flight was ok."
Miinukset: "Each time I fly SAS, it seems that a service that was free must now be paid for."
Lento aivan täynnä ja bourdauksessa ei mitään järjestystä. Tuntuu siltä, että Finnair sijoittaa pariskunnat erilleen ilman erillistä maksettua paikkavalintaa.
Premiere economy -luokkaan voisi kuulua ruoka
Tehokasta, mukavaa, uutta ja miellyttävää. Homma toimi. Hyvät unet!
Lähtöselvityksessä oli vain yksi henkilö, mikä ei vastannut lainkaan tarvetta, koska hän oli ERITTÄIN HIDAS - ja hieman tyly (?). Passeja hän pyöritteli todella kauan ja tavasi hitaasti kirjain kirjaimelta nimemme niistä ja vertaili kuvia meihin. Tuntui todella oudolta. Lisäksi tarranauhat taisivat loppua kesken ja hän joutui hakemaan niitä muualta. Meillä (kolmen hlön perhe) oli ainoastaan yksi laukku menossa ruumaan, mutta virkailija yllätti meidät vaatimalla myös käsimatkatavaramme ruumaan, koska tilaa olisi kuulemma liian vähän. Luonnollisesti olimme pakanneet kaiken säännösten mukaan ja tässä hässäkässä ruumaan joutui myös elektroniikka, jotka olimme jättäneet käsimatkatavaroihin. Virkailija ei huomannut kysyä asiasta, emmekä me kiireessä muistaneet sitä. Lisäksi jouduin todella vaatimalla vaatimaan, että sain yhden laukun käsimatkatavaroihin, koska sairastan diabetesta ja astmaa ja olin pakannut matkalla mahdollisesti tarvitsemani lääkkeet ko. laukkuun. Ehdin jo hieman hätääntyä asiasta, kunnes virkailija "armollisesti" tuli sen verran vastaan, että antoi minun valita yhden kolmesta laukustamme matkustamoon. Ymmärrän tilantarpeen, mutta olisi ollut todella järkevää kertoa jonossa odottaville etukäteen, että tällaista vaaditaan, jotta muutenkin todella tiukalla ollut ollut aika ei olisi kulunut turhaan säätämiseen turhautuneitten jonottajien odottaessa selän takana. Asian olisi mielestäni voinut myös hoitaa hieman kohteliaammin. Lisäksi huomasin koneessa, että hyvin harvan kohdalla oli vaadittu jättämään matkustamoon tarkoitettuja laukkuja ruumaan - ainakin lähes kaikilla oli yksi laukku/hlö mukana. Hämmentävää. Yllättävää kyllä kone pääsi kuitenkin lähtemään matkustajien puolesta ajallaan, vaikka jonottavat pitivät sitä mahdottomana. Lento sujui muuten hyvin, paitsi jalkatilat olivat todella surkeat verrattuna menomatkamme koneeseen.
Vähän myöhässä muuten kaikki sujui loistavasti
Kone oli kolme tuntia myöhässä.... Meitä pompoteltiin portilta toiselle. Ilmastointi oli olematon.
Finnair on lentoyhtiönä nykyään aivan perseestä! Siirtävät esim lentoja 2 päivällä eteenpäin eivätkä kerro matkustajille edes syytä! Laitoin kyselyä asiakaspalveluun jo maaliskuussa 2022 ja lentomme oli 27.5 ja en ole vieläkään saanut vastausta miksi lentoa siirrettiin.
Lento myöhässä 9h ja lähtö seuraavan vuorokauden puolella. Ei mitään tietoa finnairilta kuinka toimitaan, miten yöpyminen hoidetaan, mitä korvataan jne. Surkea suoritus.
Tämä nykyajan "turvatarkastusteatteri" on aivan absurdia matkustajien kiusaamista. EI voi mitenkään olla perusteltua että joutuu jonottamaan yli 2 tuntia sitä että käsimatkatavarat tutkitaan. Matkustajista 99.99999% on rehellisiä asiallisia ihmisiä eikä heidän kiusaamisensa moisella teatterilla edistä mitenkään lentoturvallisuutta. Parannusehdotus turvallisuuspäällikölle potkut tehtäviensä hoidon täydellisestä epäonnistumisesta. Esim lennollani 2 oli vain läpivalaisulaitetta käytössä ja jonossa tuhansia ihmisiä. Ilman lennon myöhästymistä olisimme missanneet lentomme tämän pelleilyn johdosta! Kyllä moiset tarkastukset pitää pystyä järjestämään siten ettei matkustajan tarvitse seisoskella jonossa tuntikausia. ( tämä jonottaminen tarkoittaa myös sitä ettei kukaan voinut käyttää kentän palveluita, eli myös heidän business kärsii tästä typeryydestä)
Lento oli tunnin myöhässä.
Edelleen toivoisin edes kahvia maksutta, Air France osaltaan tarjoaa jopa pientä syötävää ja muuta juotavaa.
Koneen kapteeni ei kertonut mitään muuta lennosta kuin lähtiessä lennon kesto. Olisin halunnut tietoa esim lentoreitistä.
Lento oli lähes 3 tuntia myöhässä emmekä saaneet mitään tietoa mistään. Emme saaneet myöskään vouchereita.
Finnair arpoi edellisenä iltana check-in:ssä mieheni riville 29 ja minut riville 16 eikä näitä voinut muuttaa. Finnair rahastaa kaikesta, vaikka ei tietääkseni ole ’halpalentoyhtiö’. Mustikkamehumukillinen on ainut, mikä kuuluu hintaan. Menolennolla KLM tarjosi suolaisen ja makean välipalan kaikkine juomineen (kahvi, mehu, virvoitusjuoma, olut, viini). Kännykän voi ladata. For free.
Nopeaa toimintaa, kaikki sujui hyvin.
Matkatavaratietomme puuttuivat järjestelmästä. Turhaa vaivaa moisesta asiasta. Valitin suoraan Finnairille.
Kaikki toimii suunnitellusti, ruokaa tai viihettä en käyttänyt.
Järjestelyt toimi oikein hyvin matkakumppanin boarding pass dokumentti katosi turvatarkastuksen jälkeen puhelimesta jokin spammi yritti latautua , mutta passilla koneeseen 😊 Kone ilmeisesti hiukan kovassa käytössä, istuin muhkurainen. Henkilökunta oikein palvelualtista ja ammattitaitoista ☺
Hieman enemmän jalkatilaa
Ystävällinen henkilökunta. Kaikki ok.
Henkilökunnan ystävällisyys oli hyvää, mutta pienille reittilennoille Suomen sisällä olisi mukavaa saada pikku suolaista.
Friendly and professional crew
Kun Finnair ei tarjoa muuta kuin mehua ja vettä niin olisi mukavaa että edes voisi ostaa jotain vähän laadukkaampaa syötävää kuin nuudeleita!
Ilmainen kahvi olihan kiva. Lento myöhässä yli 2 h Hesan päässä odotettiin rappusia. Huh huh. On se vaikeeta!
Lähtö myöhästyi 55min. Oli lähellä että olisimme odottaneet 1,5h koneessa, mutta saivat uudelleenreitityksen.
Henkilökunta oli tosi ystävällistä ja muutenkin koko koneessa oli hyvin rauhallinen tunnelma. Tosin kone oli hyvin vajaa.
Ei mitään hyvää Finnairilla, ei edes ruokaa tai snackseja lennoilla. Ja lennot myöhässä, kuten tämäkin oli taas.
Erinomaiset ja viihdyttävät lentäjät mutta lento lähti myöhässä
Lentoemäntä joka oli Lennon takaosassa oli todella mukava!
En voinut käyttää lentoa, koska se myöhästyi liikaa. Paha mieli tuli ja rahat meni. Kari
Kaikki oli OK. Ei parannusehdotuksia.
Lentokentällä saimme apua kahdesta pisteestä.
Tällä lennolle kaikki sujui hienosti. Henkilökunta toimi ammattitaitoisesti ja lentäjät olivat huippu ammattilaisia, nousut ja laskut olivat hallittua. Kiitos Finnair.
Jokin ongelma saapuessa jolloin bussikuljetus ja kävely toisesta päästä kenttää… kangasmaski käskettiin vaihtaa kesken lennon vaikka osa oli ilman saapuessakin koneeseen Lentolippujen kaivaminen oli haastavaa,sitten keksin liittää finskin appiin
Plussat: "Free movies"
Miinukset: "Free wifi. Better movie selection"
Plussat: "Everything was nice."
Miinukset: "Nothing to complain about."
Miinukset: "Service very cold and rare to find. For some reason finnair doesn’t announce boarding"
Plussat: "Crew great."
Miinukset: "Seats too close together. Armrest on aisle could not be raised making exit almost impossible."
Plussat: "A350, smooth and quiet. Nice plane"
Miinukset: "Seats in business are a little crowded and close together. opening to get in and out of seat is minimal"
eDreams charged us double the amount, fake illegal charged. promised us business class but put us in economy. worst company and service ever. they need to be shut down
Plussat: "Smooth flight. Perfect service."
Plussat: "All was super!"
Miinukset: "All was great!"
Plussat: "The crew was friendly. Baggage arrive safely. But the repeated commercial interruptions trying to sell things made me wonder if it was commission based - a nap was not possible from the announcements but you could buy things duty free. I am glad it was a short flight. A new plane."
Miinukset: "There are no queues. A free for all to load and unload the plane. If you are looking for Swiss order, look elsewhere. Nothing is free, not water (1.5 euro) or any other beverages or anything else. We paid double what the flight should cost to not even be offered water. The seats were lightly padded to maximize seats. There was a small amount of leg room but some. No power outlets, wifi or media. The worst aspect is I bought a flight on Baltic Air from Tallinn to Riga and had the price from Riga to Paris on the next tab on kayak. I bought the ticket from Tallin to Riga then flipped to buy Riga to Paris only to learn it was a bait price. The price was actually $200 more. Baltic would not refund the first flight (within minutes) so we were stuck to either walk away from our 2 tickets to Riga or pay the bait and switch rate. We begrudgingly paid 400 (200 each) euro MORE than the initial price shown so we could fly out of Riga back to Paris (to be back in Paris by Jan 7). A non alcoholic beverage, a small snack, and power access would be helpful. Ground crew helping with order would be helpful. I was shoved and run over trying to get onto and off the plane. It is the wild west of flying except the plane is new...oh, and it is 30 euro if you do not check in online ahead. But you will still need to stand in line to check a bag (where they can issue you a boarding pass)."
Plussat: "Clean airplane nice pretty stewardess in short dress."
Miinukset: "Probably private jet whit hot tub."
Plussat: "We made it safely to our destination."
Miinukset: "There was no WiFi. Comfier seats or at least a pillow and blanket."
Miinukset: "Nothing in time"
Miinukset: "One Toilet for a full plane with 150 passengers...."
Miinukset: "At least a complimentary glass of water or juice in Economy."
Plussat: "Arrival in time"
Miinukset: "Compartment for hand luggage was full, no space"
Miinukset: "No information was avSo pick a couple up listen to this device again also right now dictation right now"
Plussat: "Very nice plane and we left on time and the flight was very smooth."
Plussat: "Food offered on flight even though short trip"
Miinukset: "Was delayed so being on time"
Plussat: "flight crew was amazing."
Miinukset: "Boarding was poorly handled by airport staff"
Miinukset: "Announcement At the airport and the plane needs speak English more clearly. Thanks!"
Plussat: "Crews on Air France are outstanding!"
Miinukset: "Baggage was lost and was delivered 2 days later."
Plussat: "Tallin airport is beautiful"
Miinukset: "Lost luggage and indifferent assistance."
Miinukset: "Flight was late"
Miinukset: "would not check my bag to final destination"
Plussat: "the flight started at time. the attendant were fine. but i consider this flight not as a cheap flight. therefore, it should be possible, so early in the morning to offer a coffee at least."
Miinukset: "the experience on board should be improved, particularly when the flight is not different from regular airlines in terms of cost"
Plussat: "most of the crew were polite and helpful"
Miinukset: "super small plane... had to climb a very narrow staircase into the plane... overhead bins couldn't accommodate much of anything... we weren't warned this in advance. one rude steward (Miks) July 21 Flt. BT444, 18:30-19:50... he just stood there watching me struggle up the outside staircase into the plane with my suitcase... scolded me for bringing suitcase on board, argued with me, etc. (I've traveled the world and this suitcase is always brought on board)... he was not service-oriented or helpful. thankfully, other staff did help... but he left a bad taste in my mouth for this airline."
Miinukset: "Abigail in MLA (Luqa Intl Malta), one of the sassiest and unhelpful agents I have met. Ask for payment for baggage, does something with my credit card- then tells me I need to go to another desk to pay. So inefficient. This on top of her and her gate buddy screwing around at the desk throwing things at each other. Professionalism is not here. To top it off, the plane sat on the tarmac for 40 minutes and we just about missed our connection. Dirty plane too, gum stains on carpet and dirty seats. Will not fly with these clowns again."
Miinukset: "flight was delayed, missed connecting flight. new flight they gave me was also delayed, almost missed connecting flight again"
Plussat: "Nice new plane, on time."
Miinukset: "I pre-paid two checked bags (one each for my husband and myself). At check in we were told I had not done this and we had to go pay at another desk in the airport and come back to the check in line, 40 euros each. I showed the agent my paperwork that showed one bag each--it was not explicit on the paper whether this was the allowance or what I had paid--and she shrugged and said "Bad information. You have to pay now and you can take it up with the airline later." This will be a pain in the neck."
Miinukset: "The passage through Riga airport was terrifying. We arrived from St. Petersburg 6.35 and we left 7.20 to Paris (passengers in transit). We explained at the checkpoint that we had a few minutes, but they controlled us several times until we had to throw several liquid items. In St. Petersburg they had already controlled us, without problems. In short: a sad experience in Riga, which does not speak well of this country: Latvia."
Plussat: "Good service, good connection in Riga! Perfectly on time!"
Plussat: "New planes"
Miinukset: "I wasn’t asked to prepay luggage & it cost me double. That makes me very annoyed."
Plussat: "If water was free it would be better. Other than that everything was fine"
Plussat: "Flight was short and sweet, no problems to report."
Plussat: "Easy for my friend and I"
Plussat: "We went to Tallin by taxi 5 hour Air Baltic gave for voucher We are group of 8 frends"
Miinukset: "They overbooked the flight and without any apologies on their behalf or without even informing me, they stop me and my fiance at the gate and just told is that we can not go to the flight I book and prepay 4 month at advance! The only solution that they can offer me was to travel from Riga to Moscow and than to Tel Aviv. It become 12 hours traveling across 4 countries ( we arrived form Stockholm) instead of 5 hours flight as it was supposed to! I'm not recommending to travel with that company it can not be trusted!"
Miinukset: "We had to pay for 3 pieces of luggage, including my hand luggage. It came to about $150 dollars. When i booked the flight, it did not indicate anything about this extra change so be ware of this. The flight itself was quite inexpensive."
Plussat: "We arrived safely. Bilingual staff."
Miinukset: "The seats are worn and creek with every movement. There is very limited leg room even for someone who is short. When the person in front of you leans back it is impossible to reach your hand baggage or do anything but lay back in your seat. The landing was safe but not at all comfortable."
Miinukset: "No food or entertainment."
Plussat: "Brand new aircraft Wider seats as normal Good selection of food"
Miinukset: "We got disembarked from the aircraft for technical reasons, then they towed the same aircraft to the next gate and off we were. Delay almost two hours."
Miinukset: "paying for water!"
Miinukset: "Who charges for coffee, jeez"
Plussat: "It was very easy to print boarding pass."
Miinukset: "The scanners did not accept my boarding pass. 40% of the passengers had to have boarding passes reprinted. It was chaotic."
Plussat: "It's very inexpensive, especially if you fly with only with a carry-on luggage. On-board service has always been excellent."
Miinukset: "The check-in process is horrible, regardless of the airport you are flying from. It's just the trademark of Air Baltic. I learned my lesson and pay extra to use the priority check in line, as well as boarding. Otherwise you end up staying in a VERY long line. This time I was bumped from the seat that I picked when booking my flight, which was still assigned to me when I checked in online. No explanation or heads-up, I was just handed a paper boarding pass when I checked my bag, and only after I was past security line I realized that I was bumped from row 4 to row 10. I was able to get a seat in row 4 again at the gate, but not the same seat. Also, there was no priority boarding, even though I paid for it. Given this experience I will only fly this airline if I can get away with a carry on, thus avoiding the check in desk altogether."
Plussat: "Quick boarding once the plane finally arrived. Planes are new."
Miinukset: "Flight was delayed approximately 45 minutes as a result of late arrival of aircraft - surprising since it was a morning flight.. I am 6ft2, leg room is VERY tight. I slept most of the flight so cannot speak to food or entertainment. Watch out for the fees! 5 euro per leg for a seat assignment 60 euro to check bags."
Miinukset: "For people who have Airbaltic as a connecting flight this might be very inconvenient. We paid 40 Eur/person each way for our luggage . That brings the price that you pay so much higher than you expect at first. Also if you don't print boarding pass ahead of time which we didn't (plus still needed to drop off checked luggage and check our passports) they want to charge you 30 Eur a person to print that drinking piece of paper. If you don't want to pay that get out of the line with all of you luggage, go to kiosk and print it, then come back to the line. But that's companies rules , employees just have to follow it. Another problem was their attitude. The guy who got our luggage was so weird. Showing off and talking to us like a boss. After giving us boarding passes he said we can go to the screen and look up the gate ourselves. I never write long reviews but man! they got me mad that day. Never say never - but I don't want to fly with this airline again"
Plussat: "Modern aircraft. Quick flight. Quick delivery of baggage at terminal. Relieved that baggage from BKK-KBP-RIX was not lost nor delayed."
Miinukset: "It was cold and I was not dressed for the bus to the aircraft, but instead for the tropics where I had been. The toilet was not centered for stand - up use for men. Thus had to kneel in order to use. This booked by UIA, but the carrier was Air Baltic, which led to some confusion as to which airline to go to for boarding."
Plussat: "Fine, left on time, short flight."
Miinukset: "No complaints"
Miinukset: "After barely making too tight a connection, all food and beverage needed Euros or European credit card. My Visa wouldn't work. Finally after I broke down (blood sugar way too high) the stewardess gave me a glass of water. Never will I use the money grubbing airline again"
Plussat: "Clean and modern airport in Riga Baggage well handled on connection"
Plussat: "Boarding, comfort"
Miinukset: "SAS didn't let me check in my flight to final distinction, so I had a problem."
Miinukset: "Having to stop in Riga just to get from Berlin to Tallinn"
flight got cancelled and I am still stuck in brussels and new flight coming from SFO (Special flight) is also delayed. and I will miss my connecting flight from IAD to AFO as well. Overall very bad experience.
7 hour delay poorly handled by airline
Plussat: "thanks to the paid upgrading we got 2 seats in the front of the cabin (row 5)"
Miinukset: "there was NO organisation at all during boarding: the people just stood in line, not respecting 1,5m. Also at the airport security waiting lines no attention to social distancing was respected. At arrival the off-boarding was in groups of 8th rows, not really helpfull either. A big disappointment versus the flight we had from BXL to PORTO !"
Plussat: "Curtious Crew Fastest flight ever, landed one hour early and had a xtra room to lay down for a good sleep"
Miinukset: "The choices of movies"
Miinukset: "Cabin crew were arrogant and didn’t allow us to storage our backpacks in the over head cabins."
Plussat: "Very efficient."
Miinukset: "Better airflow in cabin, letting you know about meals before getting to plane."
Miinukset: "Everything went wrong. The flight arrived 40 minutes late and I missed my connecting flight because they closed the gate before I could get there. As a result, when I asked both airlines involved (Brussels Air and Portugal Air (TAP) what to do, each airline blamed the other airline for the problem and each said it was my problem to fix. After speaking with ten people and begging them to make the problem right for a problem I did not create, they finally issued me a new ticket but I had to wait 24 hours for the new flight to leave. It was a total breakdown in communication and organization and customer support and problem resolution on the part of the airlines and the airport. I never want to fly these airlines again and never want to take a flight with connections."
Miinukset: "Delay of 40 minutes"
Plussat: "Everything was good except the long layover"
Miinukset: "Shorter layover"
Plussat: "All seats were very comfortable and spots where I can view everything and crew were awesome."
Miinukset: "Local travelers should be offered even water."
Plussat: "The seat was quite comfortable, the crew was great, and the food was actually pretty good."
Miinukset: "Going through customs and an additional security check prior to boarding was the worst. It caused the flight to depart 15 minutes late."
Plussat: "Paid for Business , got a minor economy service ."
Miinukset: "Almost no advantages for business ticket traveller"
Miinukset: "Overbooked, no room for carry-on luggage"
Plussat: "The personnel AFTER passport control was wonderful, both airport and United. Passport control workers failed to recognize or help move us through to be able to board in time while they allowed other passengers to go ahead who had same departure. Plane waited 30 mins past take off for us."
Miinukset: "Brussels airport staff at pass control needed to acknowledge departure concerns to prevent plane delay of takeoff. Many passengers missed their connection in Chicago because of our delay boarding due to pass control wait and lack of help."
Plussat: "Made up tons of time en route."
Miinukset: "Usual 737 narrow-ish seat issues. Turbulence, but not a problem anyone could control."
Plussat: "3-3-3 layout in economy on the United 777 I was on meant I wasn't cramped for space. WiFi worked well for a significant amount of the time I used it."
Miinukset: "Food was typical economy class fare."
Plussat: "fast lane boarding"
Miinukset: "no snacks"
Miinukset: "You are considered as a robber but it is inscribe nowhere you don’t have luggage"
Plussat: "We were delayed boarding slightly, delayed sat on a steaming gate shuttle then sat on the tarmac for a couple of hours while storms passed. But the crew gave regular updates, provided food and water, allowed us to walk about. It was as plesent as such a situation could be."
Plussat: "As if our flight from Washington to Brussels was not delayed enough, the flight segment to Accra from Brussels was delayed for almost 2 hours"
Miinukset: "Almost everything about the trip was impacted one way or the other. Our luggage/bags were partially damaged too, but I decided not to lodge an official complaint."
Miinukset: "Very disappointing, Lufthansa airline sold my return ticket to another customers with out notifying me, so i’m stuck in here now and i have to find another ticket. And of course the flight is not refundable."
Plussat: "Excellent service. Friendly staff."
Miinukset: "Flight crew would gossip in Flemish Food not good and I vegetarian dinner option provided at all!"
Miinukset: "They didn't served me food"
Plussat: "Everything was fine"
Miinukset: "Beside for the music and movies, you should give us the possibility to make a search and find what we want to watch or listen"
Plussat: "The safety instructions movie was entertaining the first time. The crew was friendly overall."
Miinukset: "Both my luggage items were lost on the way there and one on the way back. No free food or drink although the flight price is not that low."
Miinukset: "We had to wait 1 hour inside the airplane because there was fog in Lisbon. Flight took 2.5 hours and the Fog cleared long before we landed so there was no need to wait 1 hour in the airplane where we had NO leg space at all. As compensation they could at leased given us coffee for free and not have to buy for a bloody expensive high price."
Plussat: "Good leg space and went on time."
Miinukset: "Cup of coffee would be nice but this you need to buy and this is STUPID Expensive"
Plussat: "Airplane was clean and service was attentive. Food was good and served hot."
Miinukset: "Service for my mom was great!"
Miinukset: "Cramped seats, no video, paltry food service (the "continental breakfast" consisted of exactly one slice of banana bread). And lousy coffee."
Plussat: "The crew members were kind and friendly and went the extra mile to be helpful."
Miinukset: "The entertainment screen was about 6 inches wide and there were only four movies to choose from (one that was older than the hills). The screen wasn't clear. Hard to believe that there was such poor technology for a flight from the U.S. to Europe. Also, there were no ports to charge phones or tablets which made it near impossible to watch entertainment on a phone or tablet due to low battery levels. The wi-fi was not strong. I typically like food on an airplane, but this food was not something to be enjoyed. I hope to not fly Brussels Airlines/United again. I'll stick with British Airways and American."
Plussat: "The airline insisted I check my bag because it was 2lbs over the weight, but it was an empty flight. We had a transfer in Brussels where some how the tags on the bags were not there and we were without a luggage for 5 days. I feel that the Venice airport claim was horrible as they seem to misplace luggage alot and on our transfer flight they fave us the wrong carousel. The service on the plane was great. But that was it."

Plussat: "Flight was delayed and we had to spend time Waiting both in the terminal and the plane. But crew was very nice!"
Miinukset: "Would have been nice to have been given a free snack or some water while waiting. We got a tiny chocolate which was nice but didn't make up for the waiting time"
Plussat: "The welcome."
Miinukset: "The overall organization was poor trying to make passengers off the plan to Kigali and boarding the Kigali passengers"
Miinukset: "What a surprise when our United Airlines codeshare on Brussels Airline did not even allow us a drink of water free on our two hour flight. They charged for everything including water. Shame on them! And shame on United Airlines to codeshare with a carrier with such poor customer service."
Plussat: "leg space is quite big"
Miinukset: "the food was poor - Cold Pasta salad"
Plussat: "Best business class for travel to and from Europe."
Plussat: "Crew was ok"
Miinukset: "Impossible to check in online if you have a visa. Avoid at all costs seats in row 15. The first row in coach has 3 seats and be row behind has 4 meaning that you are 4 people sharing 3 screens and seat pockets. No room to put your legs under the seat in front of you because they are not aligned with the seats in front. I fly all the time and have never seen this. I am short and has absolutely no room for myself or even my iPad and headphones. Horrible experience. Never flying with Brussels airlines on a transatlantic again!"
Plussat: "Nice plane, great entertainment unit. USB charging is nice. Food service was surprisingly good and the staff was very pleasant and helpful on the flight."
Miinukset: "Boarding from a connecting flight is a disaster. For some reason brussel's air didn't validate our passports at the first international flight. Everyone was expected to do it at the Brussels airport. This would be fine if they had a sign up explaining what to do, or even a basic queue set up. There were passengers for 3 flights mobbed around the check point in front of our gate with nothing resembling a line. Everyone was completely confused and crawling over each other. Add that to our delayed landing that put us on the tarmac, forcing us back through security and a huge walk away from the gate... We very nearly missed our flight! Please please please figure out a way to communicate to your passengers and get people into a proper queue!!!"
Plussat: "In-flight staff are professional and try to get on with things even in tricky situations."
Miinukset: "Inbound connection from Tokyo was late (1 hour) but this flight BRU-MAN was also 1 hour late, so got to the gate easily in time for boarding only to find my seat and boarding pass had been cancelled! Poor management of the situation - they don't check whether the connection is *actually* OK, just use the timetable. Poor real-time handling of the situation. This flight is sometimes subcontracted out to WDL who fly various other flights for SN throughout the day, and so any delay elsewhere in Europe can delay this flight. Baggage priority ignored for Star Gold. Missed train connection on arrival in UK. Due to the above problems. In-flight staff OK but ground crew seem disorganised."
Miinukset: "Required to pay even for a soft drink or juice."
Plussat: "Same as above"
Miinukset: "Same as above"
Miinukset: "Need more movies. Fly this route all the time and very little change."
Miinukset: "I didn't like that Brussels air used united Airlines. UA is not very dependable and they cut corners on value for your money."
Miinukset: "It was ok flight - not full airplane - good"
Plussat: "The flight attendants were professional and actually smiled often! The food served was tasty and they made sure we had plenty of water throughout the flight."
Miinukset: "A crying baby for most of the flight. I offered to help the Mom a bit. Couldn't be helped by the airline of course."
Plussat: "From the beginning of the flight, the bathrooms were a mess"
