The trip was smooth and the service was excellent.
Plussat: "Kummatkin lennot olivat ajallaan ja kaikki onnistui sujuvasti ja nopeasti. Ekalla lennolla ( HEL - > ARN ) henkilökunta oli huippu!!"
Plussat: "Boarding process was smooth."
Miinukset: "Cramped seats, at least it was a short flight."
Miinukset: "They seats were cramped and didn’t have a lot of cushion. The BBQ chicken lunch was not good. There needed to be more frequent water available"
Plussat: "No problems. I was satisfied"
Plussat: "Check in at the airport gate was handled professionally."
Miinukset: "Bought our seats 2 months in advance. One day before flight, saw our assigned seats were changed, someone had our original seats 31G/H, and we were put in 48C/D. Could not get any assistance to correct the situation until we were at the gate and by that time no comparable seats were available. Also, my husband spilled his drink; one of the attendants said he was too busy to help with cleanup. Fortunately, another attendant came over after my husband went to the galley to again ask for assistance."
Miinukset: "the staff constantly refused to help when they could and provided wrong information that caused me to miss my flight. i will never book through kayak because of this experience."
Miinukset: "SAS is a train wreck. everything they told us was misinformation from the first delay (there were 5 delays, one each hour, before they cancelled) The whole time they would not allow ticket changes while we watched available flights take off for 5 hours. We had no say in the rebooking - they just said wait you will get an email. The SAS workers need to be trained - how about putting up a sign that says "this line for parking vouchers ony'ly" when 300 people are lined up for assistance."
Plussat: "Flight left on time, plane was clean, the entertainment was good, and the food was good. The crew in this flight were polite and responsive."
Plussat: "The food and entertainment on board is great. I was very pleased with how they organized the checking of bags and the fact I picked it up at my final destination without any issues and right on time."
Miinukset: "Some of the staff at the check in desks can be very rude. Also, on my initial flight, they closed the check-in early and left many of us stranded without knowing who to talk to and how to manage to get on the plane. When someone from SAS finally came, I was told I would be escorted through security and most into the plane but then the "manager" or whoever was in charge denied it. The plane did not leave for another our and instead of arguing with the costumers they could have just helped us get on the plane. It was unfair of them to close the check in desks early and on top of that to catch a plane the next day they wanted to charge and exorbitant fee. I Wii never fly SAS again."
Plussat: "on time polite staff comfortable flights with free coffee"
Miinukset: "charging for bags"
Plussat: "Good food and a good entertainment system that comes with plenty of options. I really like that SAS doesn’t go for your wallet for every bag like jus about EVERY AMERICAN CARRIER!"
Miinukset: "Leg room could be more generous but then again I’m 6’3” so it is what it is."
Plussat: "Comfortable flight, pilot was very clear and gave good information throughout the flight. Boarding was slow to begin but wasn't annoying. Good magazine with good articles."
Miinukset: "Cabin crew member was yelling on the phone to another crew member at the gate at a mistake they made. It was very uncomfortable, only could hear it as we were walking past on flight to our seats, not super disruptive but still weird."
Plussat: "On time flight"
Plussat: "Pleasant crew"
Miinukset: "Boarding was shambolic and the 737 is not as nice as the new A320 in terms of comfort or amenity. Boarding was all over the place - and the gate agents clearly need extra people around for a full flight. One person for 170 ppl didn't feel right."
Plussat: "The crew was very kind"
Miinukset: "Nothing :)"
Miinukset: "They only offered tea and coffee for free as a drink and nothing anything more, and were not kind at explaining this."
Miinukset: "And no video either, power point also did not work. Had booked an aidle, but change of aircraft left me in tje middle :("
Miinukset: "I had requested an aisle seat and on both flights to and from Stockholm and Chicago had to sit on the very last row in the middle seat between 2 people who seemed to exceed the "weight allowance" that seem so important now when you flight unless you spend a lot a money on the ticket and it then becomes irrelevant !!"
Plussat: "Entertainment options"
Miinukset: "Super hot throughout flight. Had a 9 hour layover and the flight arrived after the gates closed so the only options for 12am-5am were wooden benches in random sketchy areas. Had to wait in line to wait to get in line to finally board the plane The food was two rolls ups three hours apart"
Plussat: "Highly efficient, no problems at all."
Miinukset: "I wouldn't mind a complimentary wine with dinner - other good airlines like to offer me a white wine with my chicken but here you have to pay for it.... Other than that I was happy with my travel!"
Plussat: "Liked 2+4+2 seating"
Miinukset: "When passengers in front of us kept their seats reclined the entire trip, couldn't move, difficult to get in or out of seats. Had to ask flight attendants to ask them to raise seats, at least during meal service. Food was worst of any international flight we've been on and we fly internationally several times a year. Very poor selection of movies and map was not working this flight."
Miinukset: "Unable to select seat/baggage until 22 hours before flight because not booked through SAS. Thought bagged was checked in online and had to pay More than the cost of the flight. Flight was delayed due to mechanical problem. Cabin very warm throughout flight."
Plussat: "The flight crews were great. The entertainment on the long flight was good. The food was abundant."
Miinukset: "While in Stockholm we had a flight delay and multiple gate changes. The lack of communication was frustrating. The food was too spicy for my taste as well as my 2 yr olds. No options were offered on the menu."
Plussat: "Nice guy behind the counter."
Miinukset: "At self check-in, we received a message that we had been placed on standby and that our seats were no longer guaranteed (for the SECOND time this trip with no explanation despite our having purchased our tickets quite some time ago). We were directed to the gate for questions. No one manned the gate until right before boarding. We spent the entire time in a panic trying to figure out how else we could get to our destination in time for a wedding. When we finally talked to someone at the counter, he said this was just normal procedure to be able to shuffle seats. This is not normal. I have flown with many airlines, and I cannot imagine it is ever "normal" policy to tell people they have been downgraded to standby until just before the flight. So much anxiety. Also, the flight was delayed, and the crew had no communication about gates or any other information (within their OWN AIRLINE) for those with connecting flights."
Miinukset: "We couldn't check in online because we had an infant in arms. So we tried to check in there. There were 3 different terrible queues. One to use the machines, one to check bags and another for special situations. We tried the machines, didn't work. A rep told us to go to the special situations line. There was a rep there that was trying to prevent people to getting into the line because it was sooo long (1+ hr). So we tied the machines again. Didn't work. So we convinced the guy to let us in the special line. It was nuts. We waited as our flight got closer and closer. Right when it looked like we might make the flight, one of the TWO reps left. When we finally made it, they said we wouldn't make the flight. We rebooked and had to pay extra. WORST travel experience ever."
Miinukset: "Got delayed 13-hours in an airport with no SAS staff present to communicate anything to all of the passengers. We were not accommodated with hotel vouchers or provided with alternative travel options to our final destinations and missed flights. SAS did not cancel the flight after the first 4-hours of delay which is illegal by EU Standards. None of us were able to leave the airport as we were not told any information about potential flight departure times and it would have been $2000 to re-book with a different airline. No answers were given by SAS over the phone and their staff seemed unaware of any problems."
Miinukset: "This is my first international flight that didn't include complimentary beverages. No free wine or alcohol, and only ONE complimentary beverage on the entire 9 hour flight! They only came around ONCE with the beverage cart! (and this was like an hour and a half before they served dinner, which didn't include a drink). They also only came around and offered water ONCE on the flight. Normally this would be every 1-2 hours. Also, the flight was delayed by about 2 hours, and they didn't make an announcement until we were about an hour late. Thankfully, I was getting updates from Kayak, or else I wouldn't have even known we were delayed."
Plussat: "Friendly service, good movies. Easy flight, arrived early."
Miinukset: "Being served two versions of a ham and cheese wrap in a row. Variety would have been 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"
Miinukset: "Missed connection was re-routed by United directly to FRA"
Plussat: "Good choice of movies."
Miinukset: "I was seated between two families with two babies on board so there was little room for me to rest since there was a lot of movement."
Miinukset: "We missed the connection and they rescheduled us on another connecting flight with further delays. This airline doesn't seem to care about their customers."
Plussat: "Crew and plane good. Friendly and English was excellent."
Miinukset: "There was a delay because of a software issue. They had to shift people around manually because of it. Baggage Fee was extremely high (> $50)"
Plussat: "Smooth flight with friendly crew"
Miinukset: "Small plane"
Plussat: "Friendly crew"
Miinukset: "Zero leg room, no overhead compartment space. Pinned to the wall in my window seat by an over weight Swedish man sitting beside me. Horrible flight !!!"
Plussat: "The plane was full and coming out of a very busy airport but the crew managed to make a good and stress-free atmosphere"
Miinukset: "When purchasing the ticket there was no mentione that bagage was NOT included something which I assume when flying with an All Star airline. Ended up paying an extra 70 € for my luggage - not happy."
Miinukset: "A very dishonest experience. The booking never made it clear that I was not allowed to check my suitcase and I had to pay € 70 extra both coming and going and thereby paid 1 1/2 times more for my suitcase than for my ticket. I am very disappointed to be 'tricked' in this way and consider it a very dishonest business practice."
Miinukset: "SAS has one of the worst boarding procedures and not enforcing it. Flight was delayed an I almost lost my connection in CPH. and it has the narrowest legroom of all Star alliance flights. my flight from stockholm was delayed and there was a massive queue at border control and no SAS or CPH 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: "Did not use their services much but the stewards seemed nice."
Miinukset: "Flight was delayed, no entertainment, not many food options for people with certain dietary requirements."
Plussat: "It was a shorter ride with few frills but we arrived safely. The two young employees who rendered wheelchair assistance were very gracious and attentive to every detail."
Miinukset: "The noise factor was very high."
Plussat: "Everyone was friendly and helpful."
Miinukset: "Would have liked more options for Movies."
Plussat: "The crew was knowledgeable, gracious and helpful for the entire flight. I enjoyed the mapping and camera feature of the plane. The selection of options for entertainment was a delight."
Miinukset: "How do you say to close for comfort but then one gets what one pays for and the economics are understandable yet I did not care for the cramped space provided."
Plussat: "The crew was friendly."
Miinukset: "The crew forgot to start serving the final meal until 40 minutes before we landed which resulted in them nearly throwing food at people so that they could quickly get through the plane and sit again before descent. I was not able to choose my seat and was seated in the back of the plane. Consequently this meant that every parent on the plane with two-year-olds decided that the best place to let them stretch their little legs was back by me. I work with small children so I understand that when they reach that age all they want to do is kick and punch, but I didn't want to end my vacation by having half a dozen two-year-olds punch my leg or try to crawl under my chair as they wandered nearby. I still have bruises."
Plussat: "Nice crew"
Miinukset: "The flight is very noise they never turn off the lights and close the windows so it's very hard to try to sleep."
Miinukset: "Rated low on food and entertainment because they didn't have any of such items... Not because they were bad."
Miinukset: "Not much talk from captain about local weather and time."
Plussat: "The plane was new, great seats and staff"
Miinukset: "Delayed flights, microphone is too fuzzy, hard to understand. Also why couldn't we get 2 or more sodas.. Crazy! The Asian airlines beat you! Very expensive stuff like a small red bottle of wine was like almost $15! Nuts... Very disappointed.. It should be free for the money we pay! Also staff just let people leave their windows open which was crazy coz most passengers are tired from other trips and of course in Europe you can hardly see anyone letting the elderly and children have any first priority boarding or let alone line up. I had my disabled husband and a young active little grandchild... Cathay Pacific, PAL,KAL, CAL are great about priority boarding for the elderly and children. Its sad your company do not have compassion or empathy for families with little children and the elderly population.. They really suffer!"
Plussat: "Lots of movie to chose from. Chicken Curry was tasty."
Miinukset: "The person in front of me put the seat back so far that I had almost no room to get up—then glared at me when I had to pull on the seat back to get out."
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
Tässä odottelen laukkua vieläkin niin missähän olis parannettavaa!
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
Minulla oli aivan kova nälkä ja halusin ostaa lentokoneessa leivän mutta valitettavasti minä olen nuori enkä omista luottokorttia ja en saanut koneesta mitään koska normaali electron maksu kortti ei kelvannut eikä käteinen kelvannut..
Way too small plane to handle hand luggage from full flight.
good service on site, but limited ability to contact the airline directly. Kayaks ability to make changes in a reservation is non existent
Plussat: "Plane was clean, plenty of leg room, cabin crew was friendly, flight was on time."
Miinukset: "Checking in was a nightmare of inefficiency. I couldn't use self-check-in for my bad because I was flying to America and for some reason, this meant I had to hand my suitcase to someone rather than just putting it on the conveyor belt. There were about 8 people ahead of me, and yet it took a solid hour of standing in line waiting to get to the counter. How it could possibly have been so insanely slow is beyond me. When it was finally my turn to submit my bag it literally took 30 seconds. And yet I had to wait an hour. Grade: F-"
Miinukset: "The flight was late to Helsinki and we missed our connecting flight to Barcelona that was also on Finnair. I was given a hotel voucher to a nice hotel with a complimentary dinner voucher. The dinner was a buffet that was limited and less than mediocre. A chicken option was not even provided, no soup"
Plussat: "Larger airplane, good seat."
Plussat: "We've lucky to sit in the emergency exit row. Lots of space!"
Plussat: "The flight attendants were excellent; seat was about what you would expect in economy; the boarding process was extremely confusing"
Plussat: "Lento lähti myöhässä, mutta kuroi aikaa kiinni ja ehdin jatkoyhteydelle"
Plussat: "It was on one of their newer planes which meant that we had decent comfort and entertainment!"
Miinukset: "The seats were staggered between the middle and sides, so my family was eventually split across two rows. I hadn't expected that."
Plussat: "Speedy boarding process, good meal choices."
Miinukset: "Plane was a little dirty. Entertainment was also a little limited in terms of new releases."
Plussat: "Boarding was ok in Dublin, even though they habitually use one of the poor gates with inadequate seating and entry to the plane from the tarmac, not via a bridge. queing and check in were well managed however."
Miinukset: "Disembarked at Helsinki unto a bus. Despite landing roughly on time, this antiquated procedure effectively made the flight 20 mins late, as that’s when the passengers got to the terminal."
Miinukset: "The food wasn’t good and it would be great if they had pasta or some vegetarian option."
Plussat: "Service good. Staff good"
Miinukset: "Very cold at night"
Plussat: "All good. Very hospitable cabin crew, great service."
Plussat: "In business class, seating arrangement, menu and entertainment excellent"
Plussat: "Fast boarding, fast taxiing, cabin crew was friendly."
Miinukset: "In flight services are naturally really limited during the short distance domestic flights."
Plussat: "Customer service and efficiency"
Miinukset: "The delay because of a software glitch"
Plussat: "I was able to change my flight quickly by one phone call to Finnair customer service to this earlier flight. I got an upgrade to Business Class where they call me by my name. Food and beverages were very good and staff so friendly that I was surprised what has happened to them :)"
Miinukset: "Difficult to complain anything. In-flight entertainment is typically very minimal on these europe flights."
Plussat: "The staff were exceptional , good food."
Miinukset: "Not really business class seats."
Plussat: "Flew on new A350, liked the seat TV, live map/camera. Good selection of entertainment."
Miinukset: "Website is very poor and ended up making booking through call centre and paying double what website was offering. Food & drink is expensive. In flight wi-fi expensive."
Miinukset: "Myöhässä. Lähtöaikaa päivitettiin 10 min kerralla myöhemmäksi varmaan 5-6 kertaa."
Miinukset: "Finnair had the worst leg room I've ever had in 50 years of traveling. It was so TIGHT that my knees were pressing up agains the seat in front of me the whole 8 hours of flight, even though I am only 5'7"! I felt really sorry for those passengers who were taller. Finnair also lost my checked in bag and delivered it 36 hours later without providing any compensation. Coming back the flight was delayed due to mechanical reasons, which caused a number of passengers miss connecting flights. This is one of the things that can happen to any airline, but only Finnair failed to provide an agent to take care of the passengers who missed their flights. So, after a 2 hour delay and 7 hours of traveling in the air, the stranded passengers had to find an agent in JFK who would rebook their flights. One of the worst traveling experiences. Will never travel Finnair again!"
Plussat: "Flight and crew were nice. Entertainment was ok, but hard to use screen functions. Flight was on time."
Miinukset: "Food was terrible."
Plussat: "Good flight, on time, nice crew"
Plussat: "Check in staff at counter in Chicago was very friendly and saved my trip by safely keeping a critical document that I accidentally left behind on the counter. Really friendly and attentive flight attendants on the flight."
Miinukset: "Aging seats and interior of plane were showing badly and it downgraded the ambience of the flight."
Plussat: "Decent flight from SFO to HEL, friendly staff ..."
Miinukset: "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)."
Plussat: "Great service, good legroom, huge screens for entertainment, and nice Marimekko designed blankets and other items. Overall a very nice experience"
Plussat: "nonstop to Helsinki was great...I have done this route over 100 times and this was the first time non-stop. When you have 17-19 hours travel time in your head door to door and then it is 12 - you really appreciate the extra time. THANK YOU!"
Plussat: "the food provided under gluten-free food"
Plussat: "Great service, staff and punctuality"
Miinukset: "They changed the plane & seats"
Miinukset: "I could not be given the boarding pass fir the last leg of my trip"
Always exceptional service
Plussat: "It was a decent train ride."
Miinukset: "Stating it’s a train from the beginning and not having to go from one train station to another."
Miinukset: "They forced me to ceck my trolley because i had a suit with me!!! And the airplane wasn’t even full. Even worst they allowed some pieces of “hand luggage” that were double the maximum allowed size"
Miinukset: "Seats are not comfortable for long haul. Airbus 380 premier economy. Not enough reclining and leg support."
Miinukset: "Seats were too close together."
Plussat: "It was very comfortable and pleasant."
Miinukset: "Could be a little better the service, the dinner was late"
Plussat: "Crew was good, seat was not, it was freezing cold and one little blanket was inadequate!"
Miinukset: "Provide another blanket when needed, was wearing shorts and a short sleeve shirt."
Plussat: "Great crew and prompt boarding."
Miinukset: "Airline food and close main cabin seating. Should offer upgraded meals, just like the extra seating space."
Miinukset: "Seat was super uncomfortable. Could not fit in my legs at all, could not recline it enough. Maybe sufficient for a one hour flight, definitely not on an intercontinental flight."
Plussat: "Crew was wonderful and welcoming!"
Plussat: "In flight entertainment was great"
Miinukset: "seats very uncomfortable, boarding was a mess in Paris, priority luggage was annoying and made us miss our connection flight (as well as numerous delays)"
Plussat: "Red wine was excellent"
Miinukset: "Bright lights on throughout flight, would have been nice to dim lights for late night flight so passengers could rest"
Miinukset: "If you have to change planes and Paris is your middle person. Leave at least 2-3 in between the two flights otherwise you might not make it."
Plussat: "The crew"
Miinukset: "Seats! They were too small!"
Miinukset: "Check in process running smoothly and better announcement of gate change"
Plussat: "The crew was friendly!"
Miinukset: "Once again no vegetarian options."
Plussat: "The transfer times were excellent"
Plussat: "Crew was very nice. Food was good and tasty."
Miinukset: "Plane seemed a little worn, which surprised me since it was an A380. Not that old. I had purchased an upgrade to a seat with more legroom, only to find out there was no USB plug for charging my phone. All standard seats have them. Would have been nice to be warned about that."
Plussat: "The crew was very careful"
Plussat: "Crew members"
Miinukset: "Up to 1 hour late and they leaved my baggage in Paris"
Plussat: "Good food and service"
Miinukset: "Missed the flight due to late landing from earlier connection"
Miinukset: "No space for legs. No food (just snacks). Very high temperature inside the aircraft. Flight delayed by 45 minutes."
Plussat: "It was a nice plane and boarding was well organized."
Miinukset: "I was assigned a middle seat, if not for that I would have given a higher rating."
Miinukset: "Long delays to go through security screening and then further delays as the plane was still being fueled at departure time."
Plussat: "The size of the plane was nice. They had a good move selection. The vegan meal I was given was great."
Miinukset: "It was loud, cold, the food was just okay at least my vegan meal was the bomb but it would have been better had when we booked the flight it allowed me to also choose this option for my husband. Since he is vegan as well."
Miinukset: "I will not use o recommend to anyone to buy a ticket with the agency, at the airport in China we were treated like criminals because as they said we were not register in the system as passengers it was really a nightmare"
Plussat: "Very helpful cabin crew and did well to communicate in English to me. Flight was on time and landed ahead of schedule"
Miinukset: "Entertainment system had to be rebooted as it did not work Small screen handset was not working for the entire flight food selection was not as big as KLM or China Eastern Bathroom on board was smaller than KLM or China Eastern which meant changing into more comfortable clothing for the night flight"
Plussat: "Crew were pleasant most of the time"
Miinukset: "Boarding process is total chaos Took 40 mins to.check in at desk , pre ordered for wheelchair Never showed ...total zoo Beds advertised as lie flat bu they are NOT 180 degree flat , legs hang down - bad for circulation"
Plussat: "Priority boarding with kids"
Miinukset: "Nothing special just like easyJet ir Rayanair"
Miinukset: "at no point when buying my ticket did the site say zero bags were included. In fact, when purchasing it said that information about baggage was not available.Shocked to have to pay 50 dollars for one bag. I am member of Flying Blue. One bag has always been included in the price of a ticket flying transatlantic."
Plussat: "Sometimes you get surprised, with this specific flight, we had an excellent young and perfect cabin crew. Thanks, Joon!"
Miinukset: "Horrible Crew..."
Plussat: "Fine for a 45-50 minute regional flight."
Miinukset: "Wouldn’t be great for long-haul flights."
Plussat: "The noise-canceling headset is good."
Miinukset: "The premium economy seat is not reclined at all. The neighbor's seat is too much flexible. This is a maintenance problem. We report these problems to the crew, though there ignored... I should have chosen an economy class seat."
Miinukset: "Took very long from landing/ arrival until baggage could be collected. Priority luggage came out last!"
Plussat: "I would like to come on time each trip because I got two late time before with airfrance"
Miinukset: "My seat was changed without my permission. Very unprofessional staff at Mumbai airport"
Plussat: "it was cancelled so they got me on the next flight on Turkish"
Plussat: "Crew very professional and nice food Boarding process well organized"
Miinukset: "Poor seat comfort in business class and no entertainment for a flight lasting more than 1h"
Plussat: "1) USB charger and electric outlet 2) Availability of 2-across economy seats (for a price) 3) Vegetarian dinner option available and not too bad 4) Flight arrived on-time"
Miinukset: "1) Front seat pocket bulging with 2 extra-thick in-flight magazines 2) No on-board wifi 3) Not much seating room - very thin"
Plussat: "On time...comfortable, clean, newish A321...good leg room...friendly crew...pain au chocolat for breakfast"
Plussat: "Staff was responsive, effective and pleasant; Nice selection of digestifs too. Food was decent and, in airline level, even good."
Miinukset: "The audio system is outdated with unreliable touch-screen that makes it frustrating to navigate."
Miinukset: "The leg-space is very narrow The chair is very tiring No entertainment at all Food was tasteless But most surprising was that we were on stand by for our connecting flight. Though we bought the tickets months ago and we got our luggage checked in all the way to the final destination."
Plussat: "I enjoyed the food, the crew's friendliness in First Class and the boarding process."
Miinukset: "The wi-fi did not work on our flight"
Plussat: "I had a choice of movies, games and music that was very appealing. My concerns about not receiving the correct meal was handled professionally and promptly during the flight. I was surprised they couldn't discover I only ordered it for the second leg of my flight."
Miinukset: "Being placed into a window seat at 6' 5". Although I opted for general seating rather than paying for a extra leg room which is out of my budget. Not getting an aisle seat was disturbing at my height. Then there was the guy in front of me not willing to forego putting his seat back on my knees for over half the flight. It would be nice if the seat assignments for general boarding considered the height of the person being assigned."
Plussat: "The crew"
Miinukset: "Not enough room for legs. Small amounts of food. No entertainment."
Plussat: "Efficient boarding. Interesting hot food. Entertainment variety very good."
Miinukset: "Business class seats hard. Did not flatten out for sleep."
Plussat: "service in general"
Miinukset: "no covid separation at seats"
Plussat: "The crew was amazing!"
Miinukset: "Food was good, temperatures appropriate for hot and cold. Fresh fruit or vegetables would be nice rather than processed."
Plussat: "Everything was good except the long layover"
Miinukset: "Shorter layover"
Plussat: "Good seats"
Miinukset: "Boarding process and Entertainment options. Availability of Snacks would also been good"
Plussat: "On board service and entertainment. The plane itself was clean and comfortable."
Miinukset: "The check in process was slow and inefficient. One of our bags was routed on another flight (we’re still waiting for it). Ridiculous amount charged for chech in luggage for an international flight!"
Plussat: "Short and timely. Flight attendant was great with kids."
Miinukset: "The flight and its crew did well but I will NEVER use it again if it has to transit in Brussels. We were bussed to the T terminal ( ‘incidentally’ where were all the AFRICAN flights transit) were we had a 5 hour layover, which is fine with me, but the terminal has no restaurant or any decent stores."
Plussat: "cheap ticket"
Miinukset: "lack of service, very unfriendly stewardess"
Plussat: "Very good service! Friendly and happy staff!"
Miinukset: "The food; I didn't like the sandwich and the snacks"
Plussat: "Crew were super helpful and friendly. Food was above average for airline food. It was all on schedule. On my return trip - knowing already the confusion with the exit row seat which I explained here, they switched me to the correct exit row without a problem or charge."
Miinukset: "I tried to book exit row seats online. The seat map would not load, so I called the number suggested. Had a long a confusing conversation with a woman who did not seem to understand what an exit row seat was. I booked seats, but my card was never charged and I received no email confirmation. I tried the website again and this time saw the seat map. Completely misleading. The real exit row is the row IN FRONT of the marked exits on the map. I chose the row which looked like an exit row, and on boarding found that I was in the row behind the exit row. The flight attendant took a photo of my seat map print out, because it was so confusing!!! No wonder the woman I spoke to sounded like she didn't know what she was talking about - she was following the seat map too!"
Miinukset: "25 min late too much announcements during night flight, especially about duty free items and prices..."
Plussat: "At least it was a flight"
Miinukset: "Noisy, no complimentary snacks nor drinks, no legroom"
Plussat: "The boarding area was spacious and clearly labeled; the plane seats were comfortable, and the flight crew was pleasant."
Miinukset: "1. The boarding process was chaotic - it was not clear where a line was to form or if there was an ordered process for boarding. 2. As an economy passenger, I was to purchase a meal between Geneva and Brussels. Since I didn't want a meal I was surprised to learn I also had to pay for a small, regular coffee."
Plussat: "La atención, a diferencia de otras aerolíneas europeas se nota la sonrisa y gran atención."
Miinukset: "A la hora del despegue molestan mucho con las cosas."
Plussat: "That we checked in at VIP"
Miinukset: "The food was the worst I've had in a plan."
Plussat: "We got warm washcloths to refresh our hands and face. A full bottle of water to save as we needed, followed immediately by a beverage service and pretzels. Dinner of either fish or chicken was delicious, and included bread, cheese, salad, and dessert. Followed by additional beverage services, a mushroom calzone and finally Belgium chocolates. The crew was friendly and entertainment on personal monitors was very good. This was the best overseas flight I have had in several years."
Miinukset: "Aisles were very narrow to access bathrooms."
Plussat: "Email and text kept me updated"
Miinukset: "Flight delays"
Miinukset: "Crew was rude, including even the pilot, who was unbelievably rude."
Miinukset: "You have to pay for any drink and snacks in flight"
Miinukset: "They change my flight, and I had no kosher food in the other one"
Plussat: "Crew. Entertainment. Food. Leg room was a bit longer than usual."
Miinukset: "Lack of complimentary food - not even a snack as far as I can remember - for almost 5 hours flight. Really?"
Plussat: "Everything was perfect, highly recommended"
Plussat: "Ok easy flight. Crew were great, really friendly:)"
Miinukset: "Seats to small, food humm? Dubious"
Plussat: "Crew was very pleasant and friendly. Departure and arrival was on time."
Miinukset: "Very narrow and uncomfortable seats."
Miinukset: "3€ coffee, no space, flight overbooked."
Miinukset: "Even after meal request few days back, no veg meal available for this long journey"
Miinukset: "To small of a choice to choose from. More options and also newer movies would have been better. Also the toilet flooded about an hour or so left in the flight and the cabin smelled pretty bad."
Plussat: "Checking in at Gothenburg was easy and staff was great. They went above and beyond to ensure that I could bring my hand luggage with me."
Miinukset: "Flight crew could stand to learn some service tips from the ground and phone crews. No entertainment on a 2-hour+ flight with 2 kids..."
Plussat: "Staff was ok."
Miinukset: "Very poor service at brussels airport. It took 15 minutes to connect the bridge and evenually we had to go down the stairs to take a bus that also took 15 min to start. We also left late frm malpensa due to late check-in but i thin rhe plane actually camw in late too."
Miinukset: "Boarding was unorganized. Halfway through the flight, the cabin smells like sweat everywhere."
Miinukset: "Lost my bags or did not make it on time for connection."
Miinukset: "The flight was delayed significantly and led to a travel nightmare and us missing an important meeting."
Plussat: "The chocolate was delicious!"
Miinukset: "The food was not that good but edible."
Plussat: "Great l! The food was good, landing was smooth and seats comfortable. Entertainment options were ok but could be better. Overall I enjoyed my experience and would love to fly with Brussels airlines again."
Plussat: "The seats in the plane were amazing. Maybe older but better than the new ones."
Miinukset: "No infotainment screen"
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: "Flight was on-time"
Miinukset: "Cabin's temperature was too warm. Breakfast was just a cheap muffin and orange juice..."
Plussat: "The flight was on time!"
Plussat: "Friendly crew, good food"
Miinukset: "First time on Brussels Airline - flying from IAD to Budapest and back via Brussels. On the long haul to/from Europe, the seats in coach did not have any type of individual air flow control above the seat. I was sitting by a window which must have been directly facing the sun. I have never been so hot and uncomfortable on a plane. Some kind of air conditioning did kick on for a short duration, but it was not enough."
Plussat: "Liked flight home arrived early luggage on belt quickly fragile parcel looked after and loads of leg room on airbus"
Miinukset: "I bought my flight 2 months before, and at the gate I was told I'm on stand by, after the check in agent already took my bag, and without any explanation. No one could tell me WHY I was all of a suddent on standby. The answer I got was "I don't know, that's just how it is in the system". Completely unacceptable and against airline policy. I will be filing an official complaint with Brussels Airlines."
Miinukset: "We found the crew to be abrupt in manner on both flights."
Plussat: "Same as above"
Miinukset: "Same as above"
Plussat: "I hated that I had to do my own check in, the flight check in and the luggage dropping. I was unsure as id I had done it correctly, and even after the staff revised my luggage drop reciept, the luggae was not delivred appropriately. The flight was delayed, which made me have to o rush all over LHR, where I pretended to have breakfast."
Miinukset: "Unpolite and stressed, rushy staff on board. On top of that, all the running throgh costumes and pretty much the whole LHR airport, and what I hated the most was my luggage arriving 12hrs late."
Plussat: "got there.."
Miinukset: "my bag was lost, delayed flight (2 hours), damaged contents in my bag."
Plussat: "Crew was polite in spite of their frustrations and ours."
Miinukset: "Power outage at Brussels airport caused a delay (no ones fault), a drunk man was let on the plane, which led to us detouring from taxi to another gate to have police escort him off. This led to extra security checks of hand and checked baggage. They found an extra bag? Which led to extra, extra security checks. Worker fell off the luggage conveyor belt, plane was surrounded by medical staff and an ambulance. We finally took off, 3 hours late. I arrived at St. Petersburg, but my luggage did not. The next day I found out it had been sent to Frankfurt. An absolute disaster, many of the problems could have been prevented by more diligence from the airline."
Miinukset: "My flight was scheduled to leave at 6:20 pm 06/08/16. Took off at scheduled departure time but an hour into the flight had to turn around due to navigation system not working (2hrs flying time). Navigation was fixed, took off for 2nd time at 10 pm, fell asleep, awoke at 3 am to a messge over the intercom stating navigation had went out again and we had once again turned around and we were just outside of Chicago (6 hours flying time). I spent 8 hrs on a plane to fly to my origin airport. This was my first overseas flight and my first time flying with United. I got a frozen turkey sandwich and sorbert for dinner. I have been placed on an American Airline flight leaving at 8:50 am but I needed to be in London at my scheduled arrival time. I've lost approximeny 14 hrs of my trip including irreplaceable reservations that I've missed as well as very important time with my significant other that I get to see once every 2 months. I took off unpaid vacation time for this trip as well. Please contact me via email or cell phone to discuss what sort of compensation can be done for this very unfortunate chain of events."
Miinukset: "Water should be free on the flight"
Plussat: "crew was polict"
Miinukset: "4 hour delay. First class boarded first - good. Then it is a free-for-all for everyone to load all at once. Norwegian needs to implement "Boarding groups" for loading the aircraft to have a smoother process."
Plussat: "Seat just ok"
Miinukset: "First we were told that we cannot be checked in for the flight because our luggage was not checked to Oakland. Therefore we cannot fly. This was unacceptable because all three flights were on the same ticket, plus we had 2,5 year old traveling with us"
Plussat: "Friendly crew."
Miinukset: "Better entertainment"
Miinukset: "Food, friendliness of crew, knowledge of crew"
Miinukset: "I didn’t fly . The service of vayama agent helping me change the flight instead of blocking my contact with the airline is very bad , I want a refund"
Plussat: "Nothing at all to like with this airline"
Miinukset: "Beware, one of the worst airlines I’ve been on, they will weigh everything that goes with you on the plane, including a small purse, really?? Yes. On long haul international flights they will not even give you a glass of water, even when the plane broke down on runway and we sat in it for 4 hrs"
Miinukset: "Didn’t take the flight. Tried to cancel with justfly.com but they refused though charges me a $$200 cancellation fee anyway. Will never use them again. Scum."
Plussat: "Entertainment was good."
Miinukset: "Give us some water for free damn it. Some lady passed out and hit her head. The whole reserving food thing is very discriminating."
Plussat: "Disembarking from both front and back is nice and efficient. Wish more airlines did that."
Miinukset: "Both flights were delayed by more than an hour. You'd think a company called Norwegian would be ready for cold weather."
Plussat: "The only male flight attendant was very helpful and polite."
Miinukset: "The rest of the crew were inattentive and rude. It was bad enough to be delayed an hour, but the inattentiveness was ridiculous. I placed an order for a beverage, a pack of crisps and a set of headphones at the beginning of the flight. I didn’t receive them until almost 3 hours into the flight. I figured they were busy with meal service and what not in the beginning of the flight so I was patient, and I saw some people receiving their orders kinda late as well. After the 2nd hour, I started clicking the call attendant button. The female flight attendants walked by multiple times and ignored my attempts to flag them down. Finally, the male attendant came over and resolved the situation, but by then we had been in the air for 3 hours. Worst service I’ve experienced on any airline. Also, for a plane called a Dreamliner, those seating arrangements are a nightmare for anyone over 5’8”; I was uncomfortable the entire flight. It’s a plane, not a bus in a third world country; it’s shouldnt be that damned cramped and crowded."
Miinukset: "Very unfriendly and stressed out female attendants....they should keep the guys only...I wish I was seated on the other side of plane... Catered primarily to customers ordering and paying on the plane...including cooked meals....customers with preordered meals got everything last...we end up having no choice of meal (chicken only) while people seated next to us got their NOT preordered beef dinner promptly, 10 minutes before us...and people seated behind us got no prepaid meals because they run out of food...???..."
Plussat: "The middle seat was empty- much more comfortable flight!!!"
Miinukset: "You have to pay for everything! But the price of the ticket was very reasonable so that's ok."
Plussat: "plane was nice, crew was only ok. but the baggage thing is totally unacceptable!"
Miinukset: "We booked a trip from Stockholm to NY. Got to the airport and the baggage fee was quite high, but i was ok paying it since i didn't prepay online- my mistake. BUT then i was told since the plane was stopping at Oslo we had to pay ANOTHER SET OF LUGGAGE FEES !!!! I said, no you must be mistaken, there is no way you can charge me for two trips just because your plane is making a stop! They insisted and rather than fight and get thrown out of the airport i am disputing with my credit card company, but it can't possibly be legal. $690.00 fees !"
Plussat: "Service zero I would not take this airline ever again even for free"
Plussat: "Board crew were pleasent and helpful."
Miinukset: "Plane was dirty."
Plussat: "On time and very comfortable"
Miinukset: "They forced me to check my bag leaving JFK. Charged me $250 to check it and then proceeded to lose my bag. They have since refused to refund my money. Don't ever fly this airline"
Plussat: "Love the planes (boeing 787)."
Miinukset: "A few of the crew members (one woman in particular) were very rude to people that were just asking about immigration forms etc. Her attitude sucked. The announcement volume was low as well so the crew could've been a bit nicer about the questions. Not thrilled with not even being offered water once during an 8 hour flight. I've been flying first, business and economy plus on American alot for the past few years and was u aware that this was a discount airline when I booked. Like I said, I love the new planes but I'm going to spend the money and have a nicer crew with water and a meal for international flights (I flew Stockholm to NYC)."
Plussat: "Able to sleep most of the way"
Miinukset: "Delayed leaving. Delayed in the air. I missed my connection."
Plussat: "Crew was friendly"
Miinukset: "Flight left late, uncomfortable seats, No water provided."
Plussat: "Hassle free. Didn't make use of all facilities. Good value for money."
Plussat: "reasonable upgrade to business class"
Miinukset: "The purser (Vinnie, who had been serving up doubles and high fives) arrived and told me that it was unlimited drinks in the premium cabin and there was nothing that he could do about that, and that they had cut him off after he started antagonizing me. I asked why it was that he would knowingly supply a passenger with over ten drinks, jeopardizing the wellbeing of other passengers, and he again responded that it was unlimited drinks in the premium cabin. The younger female flight attendant then told me that the cops would be waiting for the passenger on arrival - when in fact, the port police department was never notified, nor was the Norwegian station manager at JFK. I then spoke with a great guy by the name of David and asked him to take me to the back of the plane. The only seat available was the middle seat in row 28, so i spent the last hour and a half in the back of the coach cabin. About 30 minutes before arrival, Vinnie came to me and asked "so what exactly happened?" claiming that he would have to submit a report. I had already explained to him and several other flight attendants what had happened and they had seen and heard for themselves. Again, I was told that Vinnie never mentioned any of this to the JFK station. On arrival, I waited patiently with all the other passengers, collected my carryon from David and exited the plane - there was no one from Norwegian ground staff or from the port police department. The assailants name is Jaramye Daniels. I am concerned about your in flight staff's lack of response regarding this encounter, especially given the fact that it occurred on the anniversary of 9/11. Public intoxication and assault are criminal acts and should be dealt with accordingly."
Plussat: "Staff were very helpful and thoughtful during the flight."
Miinukset: "Boarding handled poorly, stuff in standing-room-only and they boarded privileged members and families before disabled people, causing those of us who can't stand long to... stand a long time in line."
Plussat: "easy boarding clean plane"
Miinukset: "this flight had wifi, but no USB ports to charge your devices. was a joke even the flight crew thought was dumb to offer service on plan with no charge ports."
Plussat: "Dreamliner is great, no turbulence, fast and comfortable Movie selection is good Service was good"
Miinukset: "I noticed that the temperature on Norwegian is kept a bit low comparatively to other Dreamliner carrier I have flown with; I hope this is not to sell off more blankets; which are not free..."
Plussat: "Legroom plenty"
Miinukset: "30 mins late"
Miinukset: "They charge extra for EVERYTHING, including water. And you can't even buy snacks or other food on board unless you have "pre-ordered" it. Movies are from the 90's ("classics" LOL). At the time of purchase and at check in, there was no way to select a seat."
Plussat: "The entertainment system is great!"
Miinukset: "The boarding process was really bad."
Plussat: "They had new movies (I watched La La Land a few others). Their entertainment options are good and the in-cabin electronics work well enough."
Miinukset: "We have taken 6 trans-atlantic flights with Norwegian, and *all* of them have been delayed by multiple hours. They clearly do not have the operational capabilities to run these long-haul flights. Our most recent flight, for which I am writing this review, was delayed by 5 hours, and on top of that, we had to wait to de-plane for 40 minutes since the small destination airport (OAK) could not handle our arrival simultaneously to another Norwegian flight; they coincided because of our astounding delay. There was no legitimate reason for the 4h45min departure delay--no mechanical issues, no weather problems, no airport issues; it was purely Norwegian failing to have their staff available, or them waiting for other delayed flights to arrive to allow those passengers to transfer. We heard absolutely zero explanation except from the pilot who said was due to Norwegian's "own operating issues". There was no staff at the boarding desk, and after the 5 hour delay, some non-Norwegian-affiliated airport employee just said "ok everyone board", because clearly they needed the gate and the Norwegian staff was dragging their feet. I have never seen anything like it: a whole crowd of disgruntled people heading to the podium with no organization. Fortunately, we were flying from Stockholm and the Swedes were all very reserved about the horrible service. In the cabin, it is no-frills as you would expect, but I continue to be disappointed by a lack of water! I can afford to order bottled water from the snack bar, and we did that, but really water should be delivered to all passengers spending 11 hours on an aircraft. The pre-ordered food was pretty bad and definitely not worth the money that they charge for it. If you compare this to a "real" airline's trans-atlantic flights, there is no comparison: Norwegian's cabin crew is a bunch of amateurs from third world countries; a major airline like Lufthansa actually cares about passenger comfort and makes 2-3 times as many rounds through the cabin to deliver things like water, food, wine, hot towels, etc. I think this will be our sixth and final Norwegian trans-atlantic flight. Within Europe, we have had much better experiences with Norwegian."
Plussat: "The Dreamliner is excellent. Everything is new. I surprisingly enjoyed the games available in the personal entertainment screen."
Miinukset: "For an 11-hour flight, I was surprised that pillows and blankets were not offered--especially since the AC was blasting out cold air. I was freezing throughout the entire flight and ended up getting a cold that I'm still recovering from. The only other issue I had was the lack of variety in movies and tv shows. Most were obscure movies and shows that I had never heard of. More recent/relevant options would be appreciated."
Plussat: "I thought the food was good and the staff was nice"
Miinukset: "We boarded late, took off late then had to wait at JFK for almost an hour to get off the plane. Entertainment choices were not many and not much leg room"
Plussat: "Clean, efficient, great entertainment options, friendly flight attendants, practical luggage checking or carry-on options"
Plussat: "plane seemed rather new."
Miinukset: "I couldn't check in online, there was some error. so I couldn't order a vegetarian / kosher meal. The sound in the entertainment system in the second plane was terrible, I couldn't understand anything."
Miinukset: "My young daughter was denied a ticketed seat on an 11:30 Norwegian air flight to Oslo, being told that her 10:33 arrival at the gate -- due to multiple protracted delays on earlier connecting flights to get her to the gate -- made her "too late" and the computers would not permit the gate agent to get her on board no matter how much extra she was willing to pay. She was simply told to get the next flight 24 hours later, killing 15% of her vacation. The gate agent said to my hysterical child that she was so sorry for the hours lost in prior connecting flight delays and recognized the plane my daughter was to be on was still one hour from pushback from the gate, but she couldn't overcome the computers having closed out the flight at precisely 60 minutes before scheduled departure so there was nothing a human could do. This is the epitome of machines gone crazy!!"
Plussat: "The guy at the check in counter was very friendly and helpful"
Miinukset: "The crew on the airline talked most of the short flight, and I could hear their personal conversation. Not very professional. Not a glass of water was served. Only food for pay."
Miinukset: "My entertainment screen didn't work so I couldn't watch any movies while others could"
Miinukset: "they do not even serve you water, when I asked for water they asked me to pay, it is not low cost Airline, very unfriendly staff, I will never fly it again. the staff border line rudeness and have attitude issue. 11 hours of flight in unfriendly airline, fod is served if you order it and allowed two cup of coffee and one softwdring."
Plussat: "Plane was state of the art. I particularly liked the capacity to 'dim' the light that came through the window as opposed to going from one shade to the other. The seats were certainly comfortable. The staff looked sharp & they were friendly & diligent. Entertainment offering was filled with a variety of films & shows. I was also pleased with the fact that there weren't any delays. Restrooms were equipped & clean."
Miinukset: "I was bummed to stumble upon the announcement that Norwegian decided not to renew their service with the SJU airport. IT opened a cultural exchange that would be great to continue."
Miinukset: "Wait to board and after time passes for departure, notice for delay only after expected departure time. No explanation. 1hr delay then they call to gate and everyone waits and another hour passes and no explanation given. Finally next boarding time passes and then gate change and plane change and we are notified they needed to get new crew. Finally board. Landing was terrible and I dont feel particularly comfortable ever flying with this airline again. Will rather pay more and fly klm"
Plussat: "Almost everything was perfect"
Miinukset: "There need to be more options for the food when purchasing the ticket, such as gluten free and vegetarian. Also, the wifi did not work on our flight."
Miinukset: "I ordered food online, but the flight attendant just ignored me, i need to tell them that I had ordered meal time to time. The flight attendant didn't even say sorry."
Miinukset: "Nothing. It was great."
Plussat: "New plane"
Miinukset: "Flight was an hour late"
Miinukset: "Pay for baggage, had to ask Norwegian Air rep for help (did not initiate helping), had to scan and load my own bag on belt, no greeting when arrived on plane, seats are too tight even for very thin people, no water or snack offered, crew does nothing during flight. On international 10-hour flight from LAX to ARL, no water offered flight #DY7088"
Miinukset: "2hours delay with no explanation. Crew not nice, couldn't get a glass of water after waiting for over 2 hours at check in and running to the plane. No movies, music, or anything. No space, not enough toilets."
Plussat: "Smooth flight, great price."
Miinukset: "1) there was no notice that a snack item that I purchased was not coming (after waiting 30min, I inquired and it was due to a nut allergy from a nearby passenger) 2) it would have been nice if a crew member gave notice that there would be no credit card charge as a result 3) even though the fan for my seat was off, it was freezing sitting next to a passenger that had his fan on"
Plussat: "Good value, well organised budget flight"
