Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "crew attentive the plane is very clean"
Cons: "No WiFi despite paying. No Kosher food despite ordering."
Pros: "Having a seat on the plane after it being delayed over 5 hours,"
Cons: "Leaving on time."
Pros: "Great crew. Great seats"
Cons: "Flight was delayed by half an hour. Mainly due to limited carryon space. During check in we offered to check in carry on luggage, but were told it would be an additional cost! If they would have checked it in that would have saved 15 minutes easily"
Pros: "The flight was on time"
Cons: "Seats, entertainment, crew attitude"
Pros: "Seat was OK"
Cons: "Any entertainment"
Pros: "Great staff and food"
Cons: "Comfort was not great and no entertainment options whatsoever"
Pros: "Crew did their best to make us happy."
Cons: "I felt duped by Lufthansa by the so called business class, where my legs barely fit, there was no entertainment, and there was no real difference at all from economy except for not having a person in the middle seat. It was equivalent to economy plus at best, but charged at business rate."
Pros: "Same crew. Really nice flight smooth and professional"
Cons: "Flight got cancelled."
Pros: "The Lufthansa service in rebooking."
Cons: "Lost bag- this was after my luggage tag was scanned and I was assured the bag was on the plane. Getting information from Lufthansa about bag status was impossible. Help phones were either busy or never answered. A black hole of no information until the bag arrived 30 hours later. Then a 45 min. At airport to get it back."
Pros: "Crew was ok. Had to manage difficult passengers."
Cons: "No entertainment. Average food. Little space for legs."
Pros: "Breakfast food was fantastic. Staff was helpful, anticipatory, and thoughtfully accommodating."
Cons: "No access to usb power outlets."

Cons: "I never made it. See reasons above. feel free to check into the letter I wrote your customer service. Terrible"
Pros: "Crew was nice. Lufthansa crew is usually good, so no complaints."
Cons: "Even the crew said that the plane was too crowded, and that they should have used a larger plane for such a full flight.There was no entertainment on the plane, unless you provided your own device. My flight from Chicago to Frankfurt was on a very large plane so I have no complaints, but, the plane chosen from Frankfurt to Tel Aviv was much smaller, and packed to the gills, with passengers, and luggage, and crew. The crew themselves remarked that the type of plane used for this flight was inappropriate."
Cons: "We had to fly to mun because it was delay from florence"
Cons: "No Entertainnment , no space , very small airplan"
Cons: "To Whom It May Concern, My name is Eliezer Korbman. I was a passenger on LH403 with service to Frankfurt, Germany. Upon reaching cruising altitude and prior to dinner service, a Lufthansa stewardess reached across my midsection, activated the reclining mechanism and forcefully returned my seat to its upright position - waking me up to eat. (You may conduct your own investigation, but there was no prior announcement.) I politely declined, but was later denied dinner and breakfast. To clarify, I was unable to eat or sleep. This is utterly disgusting service. I am incredibly disappointed in Lufthansa for the way that I was treated aboard LH403. Unless I can be persuaded otherwise, I will be taking my business elsewhere. Garbage service! Shame on you Lufthansa!"
Cons: "Took a few time to ask for my kosher food. Crew couldn't locate me on the list, than the were out of kosher food, gave me regular breakfast, which I couldn't eat more than granola. It was pre-ordered, and I called to confirm a week ahead."

Pros: "Stressed out crew. No pillows."
Pros: "Very nice"
Cons: "An hour late"
Pros: "Great planes."
Cons: "Flight attendants didn't want to help me find space for my bag. There were many small pockets so I asked them to help arrange so we could fit my bags. Without even looking they said there's no room. 'I can't do that' is what I was told. So who can?? (Maybe she was a transfer from united)"

Pros: "We often fly on Lufthansa and highly recommend it!"
Cons: "There was no movie..."
Cons: "The same as above"
Cons: "The business class is not really a business class, and the chairs are not comfortable. Moreover, there was no entertainment. During the boarding there was no distinction between Business and Economy class. There should be an opportunity for business class to board at any time."
Cons: "the seat. not suitable for a business category"
Pros: "Lufthansa was really comfertable company, really good price and i'd so much."
Cons: "The plane was extremely small and uncomfortable. There were only two lavoratories for 60+ people, the other two being reserved only for the 10+ people in first class. As a result, throughout the whole flight there was a long waiting line in the plane's aisle, causing the crew to complain angrily in German, thinking we wouldn't understand what they're saying, because they couldn't go through easily."
Pros: "Good pilot and staff and service"
Cons: "There was no entertainment at all. The flight from Frankfort to Tel Aviv did not provide a pillow or a blanket. I arrived cold with a stiff neck. The personal spotlight didn't shine in the right seat."
Pros: "Very nice crew"
Cons: "Boarding and take off was late, probably the fault of destination airport"
Cons: "The meal was served rather slowly. I think there ius a place for improvement there."
Cons: "we were with 2 kids (1 Child and 1 baby). They ground crew did not allow us to board first (like usually). We had to wait until the economy boarding, it became too crowded and was hard to reach the airplane with the kids. regards"
Cons: "the waiting before the boarding, the Frankfurt airport gate for telaviv is different from the other gates, no store, no drinking water except one small counter that sell water and other food in very high prices, I except to have at least free water in the gate, excepsialy when we wait their more than hour an half"
Pros: "Got the seat that I paid extra for ,,,"
Cons: "Not much help at the airport my luggage was lost"
Cons: "The passenger sitting next to me smelled REALLY bad. Like he hadn't washed himself in weeks. Other passengers around me got a whiff too and also reacted the same. I asked the main crew member from my aisle for a seat change but he came back 10 mins later saying there was nothing else available. Later when I was walking around to stretch my legs, I saw there were AT LEAST 10 seats open in the next cabin. Why lie? The entertainment system touch-screen was not working properly and the headphones kept falling out of my ear."
Cons: "Seat in front of me was mostly lowered in a position that caused an uncomfortable force against my knees. My neighbor had to place his knees in my sitting area for the very same reason. Otherwise everything was great."
Pros: "Crew is amazing"
Pros: "I have flown to hk with Cathay and American exclusively. I wanted to try Finnair because the price was very good for business. I now know why. The food is mediocre. The staff aren’t friendly or attentive. At $2700 it’s cheap compared to CX and AA but I know why now."
Cons: "Service, staff and food."
Pros: "There was room available."
Cons: "This was not business class!"
Pros: "I liked everything !"
Pros: "The crew were helpful, pleasant and professional"
Cons: "There wasn't anything we actively didn't like. It was a good flight."

Cons: "Over duty for extra weight"
Pros: "Super quiet and comfortable flight, dedicated service, punctuality."

Cons: "50 minutes delay. Food tasted funny like old leftovers."
Pros: "Crew was very friendly and efficient"

Pros: "The flight was good. Enough legroom for me, the food was ok. And the crew was pleasant and attentive."
Cons: "The flight departed late because the preceding inbound flight was late. No reason was given to the customers."
Pros: "FLIGHT & COMFORT WERE OK AIRCRAFT NEW AND WELL MAINTAINED MINIMAL SERVICE BUT CONSIDERING THE PRICE IT WAS OK THE AIRLINE PROVIDES SOME DRINKS FOR FREE (BUT...)"
Cons: "POOR ENTERTAINMENT I PURCHASED FOOD AND IT WAS LESS THAN OK THE AIRLINE ACTUALLY PROVIDES COFFEE, TEE, WATER AND "JUICE" FOR FREE BUT IT IS NOT CLEARLY EXPLAINED"
Pros: "Good flight--and a PERFECT super-smooth landing."
Pros: "Movie selection ok."
Cons: "Minimal coach legreeom even for an average-height passenger."
Cons: "announcement in English hard to understand"
Cons: "Huge lines at the airport for check in and drop off of lugagges. Apparently finnair hasn't heard yet of automatic check in and drop off. After that long wait for boarding and flight delayed. Very little information."
Pros: "The crew was friendly."
Cons: "The seats are cramped and the most uncomfortable I've ever sat on. An 8 hour red eye flight made it unbearable. The food is pretty terrible too. This is the last and only trip I'll be flying Finnair."
Pros: "Nice crew"
Cons: "old plane, not clean, flight delayed not airlines fault"
Pros: "Flight attendants were courteous and efficient, boarding flowed smoothly."
Pros: "The sitting quite comfortable, have space for the legs. Food was fine."
Cons: "One kind of ice-cream only !! Why only Vanilla ? Should have at least 2 different, to choose from."
Cons: "They let us board before fixing an electrical problem causing major delay. They needed a new part and they thought they could jerryrig a repair!"
Cons: "It was n't their fault but My wife's passport expired in 91 days from beginning travel so they wouldn't let us on the plane to Italy."
Pros: "Made up some of lost time from delayed departure"
Cons: "Seats cramped"
Pros: "I most liked milk lactose low for my coffee . I can't criticize about food because I was offered only beverage this time with only an hour flight. Hehe ."
Cons: "Nothing made me uncomfortable except for the concern about stealers in most of Europe . I didn't experience it yet but tons of times I've heard about stories of tourists ."
Pros: "Staff was nice. Seat was standard."
Cons: "Small movie selection."
Pros: "We ended up being on a BA flight which was fine. Ok service, check in from London much better than USA. In flight entertainment good."
Cons: "Nonchalant crew on the way back, I asked if they had any snacks half way into the flight as I didn't eat dinner, I went to the galley and the head of customer service heard my request, looked at me and just carried on reading his paper leaving a flight attendant to offer me a small bag of pretzels , which she had to search for. Very poor"
Pros: "everything was ok."
Cons: "I couldn't check in on time as the booking numbers were different on the actual company that was flying me. I was trying to do this on my phone and I had to call in each time. couldn't do it on the computer."
Cons: "I am 6'1" tall. Seats were designed for 5'1" persons."
Pros: "I booked the seats with extra room - really glad I did. The food wasn't bad, the entertainment system worked. I definitely prefer the Virgin Atlantic entertainment system, but I fly AA fairly often and will continue to."
Cons: "The airport check-in was absolutely terrible. We were in line so long that an employee came up to us and said "I can't believe you're still here." Neither could I. We get to the airport at least three hours early because of stuff like this, but the incredibly slow line and unorganized way of handling it ate any of the time I'd looked so forward spending at Heathrow (I love hitting Boots etc)."
Pros: "Having read horror stories online about booking with Kayak's partner Justfly, I was prepared for the worst (last-minute cancellations, partial refunds, all-around crummy service). Actually, my Finnair flight was great - it was operated by BA, so it was a nice new double-decker Airbus plane. It was maybe 3/4ths full, so I nearly had a row to myself - shoutout to the jerk who decided he was entitled to the aisle seat. The flight was smooth and easy and best of all, it cost a fraction of what the BA price for a one-way from SFO to LHR cost."
Cons: "The food on BA continues to be meh, but what most people don't realize is that ALL airline food is meh, because your tastebuds don't work properly 30k feet in the air (it's a scientific fact)."
Pros: "The plane was not full"
Cons: "I wish it truly were Finnair instead of American: The seat, the legroom, the fact that you have to pay 20% more to have the same rotten seat 12 rows further up front, the food that's barely fit for human consumption, the presence of 20 year old cathode screens that can't be watched but do prevent the cabin being dark, etc."
Pros: "Food and service"
Cons: "Seats were very small"
Cons: "It is absolutely ridiculous that they made us pay $100 each way for our ski bag/equipment. I will never fly either airline again. Horrible customer service as well. The airplane and its entertainment system is quite antiquated and needs to be updated. Horrible experience."
Pros: "it was fine"
Cons: "Sat on runway for almost three hours. Delayed connection."
Pros: "service . Informed the status of flight immediately. which is very useful to plan."
Cons: "If it is extra line to add for select the type of food, then it is useful the passenger. Because may some people are vegetarian then they know what they can have."
Pros: "On the way home i was awake for the whole flight, and found it to be quite good. Had trouble choosing my seat from early check in bit what I got was good. Good good, service great, clean and comfortable."
Pros: "The configuration of the seats are really awkward. Seems very interesting at a glance, but not so nice when you have to sit in it for 10 hours. The business class seats are very narrow. I'm pretty petite so it was okay for me, but I think an average or bigger than average person would have a hard time turning at all while the seat is in lie flat position. I had a window seat which gives you more privacy as long as you have the divider up between you and the passenger next to you. You are really arm length away from each other though. And! You can't have the divider down the entire time because they serve your meals by passing it over to you across your neighbor through the divider. The divider is also required to be down during taxi, take off and landing. So, I'd imagine it to be very awkward if you're sitting next to a total stranger. You also have to straddle over someone's legs if you want to get out of your seat to the bathroom if you have window seats."
Cons: "Disgusting meal, I left most of it on my tray. The promised entertainment systems were not working. There was no wifi on board either. These were both things I had looked for prior to booking this flight."
Pros: "Flight attendants were very helpful and joyful. Food wasn't too bad for airplane food! :-)"
Cons: "I find it appalling that there is a charge for seat selection. Please add 10 cents to the price of a ticket and do away with the seat charge. It would buy you loyality."
Cons: "Dealyed - One hour"
Pros: "Such a delightful flight."
Cons: "Departure late by 25 minutes!!"
Pros: "Nothing. I was offloaded minutes before boarding by BA without any explanations. The staff was not helpful in any way. BA is suggesting either non recept of payment or credit card fraud. Both reasons are totally bogus."
Cons: "Proper communication by both BA and local handlers at the airport in Iceland."
Pros: "Boarding was simple and fast!"
Cons: "Online checking did not give me the option to change my seat. This could have been better."
Pros: "The crew was very helpful. Made sure I was comfortable."
Pros: "Crew was late, which caused me missed my connection flight, and layover for 10 hours at Heathrow Then on my delayed flight, I was seated on a worth sit. Thank you British Airway. Hope this my last flight with you. Kobi"
Cons: "Get your crew arrive on time to their flights. Kobi"
Pros: "Glad to have flat beds and not the fake B class you sometimes get in Europe"
Cons: "Not crazy about this seat arrangement in which every other passenger faces backwards."
Pros: "Friendly Crew"
Cons: "The timing of the food service vs hours of flight"
Pros: "I liked that the seats were very comfortable and had enough space."
Cons: "I didn’t like that I had to go through security twice once upon arrival and once in London. i also wish I would have booked a different airline so I could have had a direct flight. That wasn’t a problem with this airline though, just my negligence with research."
Pros: "Amazing crew, kind and patient"
Cons: "The seats rows are too close - high density. The flight was late."
Pros: "Nothing the worst customer service I ever had"
Cons: "The flight was canceled due to mechanical difficulties and British airways delayed helping us for 2 hours and then told us to use the phone 800 number to book a different flight. we needed to connect in London for the flight to Tel Aviv. The man on the phone barely spoke English and set us up with a flight that would not get us to our destination in time for our religious Sabbath Friday night. When we tried to explain the situation he hung up on us. We called back and tried to explain again we either spoke to the same man or another Indian man whom also spoke unintelligible English and he also hung up on us. In the mean time my wife spoke with the counter agents and they tried to find us another flight but by now other airline counters were closed. An hour later I tried the 800 number again and spoke again with the same Indian guy, when I asked to speak to a manager he gave me a hard time then finally said ok, put me on hold which I stayed for a while and realized he just put me on hold indefinitely. Finally after being in the airport for 9 hours we found a flight from United and a family member booked it online for us which we took to Tel Aviv and got us here only 2 hours later than our original flight which had a 12 hour layover in London and we were going to spend time touring but did not get to. As far as I am concerned British Airways has done a horrible job and no one should ever fly with them again. Unfortunately our flight home is with them I hope it goes smooth."
Pros: "The crew is friendly. Relative to some other flights I've had, the Economy section is not terrible."
Cons: "If you are fairly tall, don't expect to be able to catch some sleep. The earphone socket is located right next to your leg, so expect to break your cable."
Pros: "Food was decent"
Cons: "One of the worst business class seats - worn and cramped. Boarding was pandemonium Crew was unfriendly"
Cons: "British airways new I'l be late , they could send someone to pick me up from the security point, so I could have been on time."
Cons: "Screens were difficult to maneuver. In some instances wouldn't open."
Cons: "not much room. cant explain the boarding. too complicated and required going down stairs."
Pros: "It got me where I needed to be with a reasonable seat. I got a arrival card from the flight attendants."
Cons: "The boarding process was not very clear because we were away for the first announcement and then no more details were provided that we heard, so we just got in line. It seemed like nothing was free on board, including water but I could be wrong. If there was free stuff, it was not clear, which is annoying. They gave me an arrival card, but no pen or pencil or anything to write with."
Cons: "Boring entertainment selections"
Cons: "The plane was actually about to fly off when it suddenly skidded to a stop. We weren't informed about the reason, but all of a sudden, the plane couldn't take off for over two hours. My family and I ended up missing our connecting flight home. BA tried compensating with food vouchers and rebooking us onto another flight, but our family got split up in the process and we were all assigned to different middle seats."
Pros: "Nice crew"
Cons: "5 hours delay, and at 2 of them we were on board. Terrible food. We asked to walk outside, by foot, in the snow to the aircraft. Terrible flight."
Pros: "Crew and entertainment are excellent"
Cons: "Food is mediocre. Temperature on the flights to and from Tel Aviv is very cold (needed blanket and shawl both directions)."
Cons: "Business class configuration on BA 777"
Pros: "Ground staff and crew excellent Boarding was confusing and not announced"
Cons: "The breakfast was kind of gnarly - the eggs were oversalted and slimy, like worse than the usual airplane meal"
Pros: "Great crew, quiet flight, good food,"
Pros: "the staff"
Cons: "aircraft, food, entertainment"
Cons: "12 hour delay. Very disappointed with British airways"
Cons: "Freezing cold cabin"
Cons: "It gave me a different return date"
Pros: "The crew are always nice, trying to compensate for the lack of service provided by the company. sadly, its not enough anymore."
Cons: "Everything.. Check in was a nightmare, only one representative for over 50 people. and much more horrible behavior from once a great company, today nothing more than an over paid low cost one."
Pros: "crew attentive to passengers and always with a happy demeanour."
Pros: "Efficient and convenient."
Cons: "The cleanliness of the plans...my tray table has crusted food stains and the magazines in the seat pocket had gum all over them."
Cons: "The food."
Pros: "Flight attendants were to top in the industry. Caring and caring. They are the face of your airline. Give them the right tools, they function well. I could not have been treated better as a Frequent traveler."
Cons: "Reservation process online does not show you that you are buying a bullshit Business Class seat. You pay a premium for Business class and granted, the meal was great, something the Coach class did not get BUT they should tell you when booking that that you are sitting in coach with a table blocking the middle seat, not truly a Business class seat. Dumb down your operations but don't insult your customers. Tell them what they are getting when booking a bus type business class seat. Worst business practice ever, driven by European style of travel BUT call it premium economy, not BUSINESS."
Pros: "Direct filght"
Cons: "Limited entertainment options"
Pros: "Safe on almost on time trip"
Cons: "Checking in at Reykjavic was slow and crowded"
Pros: "Staff were nice"
Cons: "Disappointed with the food choice"
Cons: "It is a very short connection time and it is the second time I've missed it. Now according to the schedule I should be arriving Tel Aviv at 11:30 pm instead of 3 pm. And the wait in London is very long."
Pros: "For the back of the bus, the seat was still pretty comfortable and I did manage to sleep. Boarding was easy, The entertainment seemed great, thought I fell asleep"
Cons: "I didnt' manage to get a good seat. I sat in the middle row, last row of the plane. : ) Also, i must have fallen asleep, but I was never offered even a cup of water."
Pros: "the flight was very comfortable and we had a very pleasant flight. The food was very tasty, and all in all the flight was very high standard."
Cons: "there was some air hosts strike so service was slower than expected, but all in all the crew was able to attend everybody's needs. landing was a bit rougher than usual."
Cons: "Their own employees didn't know that the flight was delayed, though their app had sent out a notice, and they refused to let me go through security, having already given away my seat more than an hour before the flight actually left. Then they refused to admit responsibility and do anything to help except to continue to put us on standby on their own full flights, knowing we wouldn't be able to get on one of those flights for at least a few days. They did finally give us a hotel for just one night and that was only after we kept reminding them that this was all their fault."
Pros: "I was late to the flight due to an accident and I have got a new flight quite easily"
Cons: "I have got a seat that can take t back, no one told me in advanced this is the situation and the flight attendent keeped telling me why it can't be done instead of looking for a solutioni"
Pros: "The cabin crew, as always, were unfailing patient and polite and as helpful as they could be. Given the situation with the IT problem at BA, it was amazing that we were scheduled, and took off on time and arrived in Tel Aviv on time. Congratulations to all!"
Cons: "We were at the back of the plane, which was pretty difficult for my 6'6" husband and his long legs. We were told every seat was full (because of the IT problem). However, after takeoff it became apparent that there were some empty seats, but they weren't offered to us. One man was asleep across three exit row seats, for example. We had two seats in a three seat row, which would have given us a bit more room, but a woman was moved to the window seat with us, to accommodate a religious man who didn't want to sit next to her. She was very nice, but the whole situation was annoying and distasteful. And, unfortunately, the food was just as bad as our last flight."
Pros: "Great food, great entertainment, short flight that went smoothly"
Cons: "Cabin temperature a bit high"
Cons: "Food Accommodating bags when space is available"
Pros: "the crew was grate, brakfest was good ."
Cons: "baggage was lost"
Cons: "I WANT TO CAHNGE TIME OF FLIGHT. BRITISH ASKED TO HIGT PAYMENT. IN THIS AMOUNT I CAN BUY TWO TIKETS IN LOW COAST COMPANY AND I HAVE ENOUTH MONEY TO BUY FOOD. PERSON THAT BUY TIKET FROM THE SITE CAN'T CHOISE A SITE AND ITS COME AUTOMATIC WITHOUT TO CAHNGE/"
Cons: "Better reading material"
Pros: "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."
Cons: "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)."
Pros: "Clean and neat aircraft with nice crew"
Cons: "Find a way to serve at lease water. Some crew members were uptight. Need to be friendly"
Cons: "Flight attendant didn’t smile @ all, it was like we are on her way."
Pros: "The crew, plane and airport was great!"
Cons: "Part of our luggage was disassembled and not delivered to the final destination."
Pros: "The crew, plane and procedure was all great."
Cons: "Part of out luggage was disassembled during transit and part was missing afterwards... part of the luggage was missing."
Cons: "The crew might be greeting passengers onboarding."
Pros: "We made it safely to our destination."
Cons: "There was no WiFi. Comfier seats or at least a pillow and blanket."
Cons: "One Toilet for a full plane with 150 passengers...."
Cons: "Being on time"
Cons: "Flying with the same company from Vilnius, only on Riga they decided to weight the cabin bags. I understand the police, the limit weight, but they should apply it from the first flight, not just half way"
Cons: "Not mentioned that in Munich I had to change terminal and pass again on security check. If I would have bought some bottles in Vilnius or Riga duty free, I would have had problems"
Pros: "everything was good enough"
Cons: "I would like a meal and drinks on the board"
Pros: "flight crew was amazing."
Cons: "Boarding was poorly handled by airport staff"
Pros: "Small compliment from Air France was lovely and unexpected"
Pros: "Helpful crew"
Pros: "It was a fairly ordinary flight"
Cons: "Our luggage never arrived at our destination, perhaps something to do with a connecting flight although there were 2 hrs 15 mins between connections. After informing Male Airport, a message was sent to Condor. No news all day. Next day lodged complaint replied they're investigating. Holiday ruined"
Pros: "Simple no frills airline"
Pros: "Crews on Air France are outstanding!"
Cons: "Baggage was lost and was delivered 2 days later."
Pros: "Absolutely nothing"
Cons: "When I got to the check-in desk, I was told to get out of line and check in online. It wasn't a big deal, but it would have been good to know that it was necessary to do this so I didn't wait in line for a long time."
Cons: "airBaltic has a terrible luggage policy for musicians. They make you pay extra if you want to bring a musical instrument on board, even a violin which fits easily into the overhead bin. It is honestly discriminatory. Will not be flying with them again."
Pros: "staff were polite, helpful, and efficient"
Cons: "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"
Pros: "Nice new plane, on time."
Cons: "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."
Cons: "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."
Pros: "Pleasant crew, efficient boarding, flight was on time"
Cons: "No in-flight service"
Pros: "Did not have food, so not able to rate that. Comfortable for sure! Plane ain't that big and one side had only 2 seats next to each other."
Pros: "Flight was short and sweet, no problems to report."
Pros: "Easy for my friend and I"
Cons: "They delayed our flight from Gatwick to Riga with no information given to passengers. Many of us had a connecting flight with Air Baltic from Riga to Helsinki- which we asked if they will wait for us, the crew member said because the flight was also with Air Baltic, they will wait for us. We got there 10 minutes before take off, and the gate has already closed. Furthermore, we got to the Air Baltic counter, we were given 5Euro meal vouchers even though we will be staying at the Riga airport for 9 hours. Also they gave us terrible customer service attitude, which we definitely do not deserve after being delayed, and causing so much trouble on their behalf. Definitely do not recommend flying with Air Baltic again. I've never been this angry with any air line."
Cons: "We were told upon check in that there was a charge to check in. I have never heard of such rubbish in 43 years of air travel. We were told we could check in online but we only had 4 minute in which to do it. We were charged €150 for 5 people. The check in Sgent was sour faced as well. Once aboard the plane (a nice new aircraft) we found the stewardesses sour faced as well. Overall not impressed by air Baltic!"
Cons: "SEVERELY DELAYED"
Cons: "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!"
Cons: "An extra fee is charged if you don't check-in online."
Pros: "We arrived safely. Bilingual staff."
Cons: "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."
Cons: "The flight was cancelled, so I did not make to the my connection flight with different carrier. I had to reschedule the flight and stay in the hotel overnight. AirBaltic refused to compensate for my looses due to thair fault, castomer service is very poor, they took refusal position right away. Air Baltic planes are very old and no air conditioning, avoid air Baltic."
Cons: "In Stockholm they denied my boarding to Riga and Moscow as they told me that I need Shengen visa. When I was buying ticket I wasn't informed that I need to have Visa. I always travel through Europe with layovers and never have this issue before. I had to buy another ticket straight to Moscow and wait in the airport for 8 hours. I ask to reimburse me half of the price of this ticket."
Cons: "No food or entertainment."
Pros: "Enough said"
Pros: "Boarding went well and crew was nice."
Cons: "The air conditioning was not working properly on the 3 hour flight which made it a bit sweaty and unfortable. The purchase of a cold beer was a must."
Cons: "Expensive tickets but no complimentary beverages and snacks for a 2 hour flight, overpriced snacks in the flight cafe. 3H delay!!!! with no understandable explanation in English and no explanation in Latvian from the captain - airBaltic is a Latvian airline! Other airlines use two languages - national and English"
Pros: "Everything was very smooth and the crew was very attentive."
Cons: "My flight was delayed, and I missed my connecting flight. Next flight was 8 hours later. They did put me on this flight but didn't give any assistance to help me with another connecting flight because it was a different company. Voucher for a cup of coffee didn't cover all the troubles I had to go through."
Cons: "No fee food or beverages at all. Attendants were very pleasant. Since this is an economy airline there reallly is no complaint. Our flight was full and boarding went smoothly."
Cons: "Who charges for coffee, jeez"
Pros: "The equipment used for the trip to latvia. the cs300 was superb and I enjoyed my seat. It was comfortable. The boarding was quick and efficient. spacious and quite lovely. the food was ok . i enjoyed the grilled pork."
Cons: "the customer service rep stopped only me, the only black man travelling from riga to russia and was scrutinizing my passport for some long agonizing minutes. My russian visa is in the passport and updated and quite visible to see on the third page of my passport and being from Grenada I am able to travel to latvia visa free for up to 90 days. I stood there whilst others walked past me and went to the aircraft. that sucked. may 09 2017 at around 9 am."

Cons: "The fly had a 3 hours delay where they had us sit inside the airport , and only was offered an amall cup of water"
Pros: "Not much. HORRIBLE airline. Would never fly you again."
Cons: "Seat rows are TOO CLOSE. I'm 5'10" & my knees were rubbing against the row in front of me (21F). HORRIBLE. Will never fly you again. Also, there was a gate change from C3 to D3 that was NOT announced at C3. There were 20+ of us sitting there then we checked sign to see change. BAD SERVICE."
Pros: "FRIENDLY BUT NO HELP WITH WHEEL CHAIR."
Cons: "COULD OF HELPED GETTING ME MY WHEELCHAIR. NEVER DID GET ONE, EITHER BEFORE OR AFTER THE FLIGHT, EVEN THOUGH IT WAS REQUESTED WHEN TICKET WAS PURCHASED."
Cons: "Uncomfortable seats do not recline, no refreshments, barely civil staff. Impossible to add checked baggage online. Checkin staff gave incorrect boarding information."
Pros: "Seats were "old style" - still had some cushioning. The flight indeed reached it's destination in Prague."
Cons: "Flight was 20 minutes late to get in to Rome. Boarding was a zoo. First a huge single line crawling through the gate. Then, overloaded buses taking squeezed passengers to the plane. Another 35 minute delay to taxi. While not a budget carrier, food and even water is only for sale. Terrible landing."
Pros: "Quick boarding, nice crew."
Cons: "No fun for kids. It could be better."
Cons: "Exit on the Prague airport via steps, bus etc"
Pros: "Absolutely NOTHING"
Cons: "Late to depart on an 1:15 minute flight for over an hour while telling the passengers nothing"
Pros: "Everything was more or less good except hand luggage which nowhere to place because there were to many things already placed. Some of suitcases didn't look like hand luggage because there were really big ones."
Cons: "I don't like if I have to keep my hand luggage under the seat because there is no room for feet. This happened because there was no place above my seat. Why so? Do you allow people to take more than allowed by rules? I had flights to Paris and back and all two flights were with the same issue"
Pros: "The check-in online was very helpful. Flight was excellent."
Cons: "The airport bus took us twice from the gate to the the plane. I tried to understand, no idea why the bus did that. The departure obviously was late."
Cons: "Hot as balls"
Cons: "Plane malfunctioned"
Pros: "Good connection to Prague. Flight on time, boarding & check-in efficient."
Cons: "Airline Charged us 35 Euro each to check small bag that we could carry on in US. Can only carry on 1 item. Can’t carry on a small backpack with small luggage. That counts as 2. Best to buy tickets that includes 1 checked bag. All drinks & food must be purchased. Nothing is complimentary."
Cons: "Failed to deliver luggage to Warsaw upon arrival on Wednesday.. Had to submit a claim upon arrival. Thursday morning still waiting for status of luggage which apparently remains in Prague."
Cons: "Worse airlines in new I've ever seen"
Pros: "The flight was deleted 40 minutes so I missed my flight to London/Boston. Now I have to pay $1,375 extra. Very disappointed. The personal at the airport was straight rude."

Pros: "The flight was basically on time and we arrived in Amsterdam in time to make our connecting flight. Check-in personnel were nice, helpful and efficient."

Pros: "Bigger seats, not so crowded."
Pros: "The flight arrived on time without incident."
Cons: "I was charged 11,000 each for two bags which were checked, which is over $41 per bag. That's very high. Also, they didn't even offer water on this flight."

Pros: "No frills. On time."

Pros: "Lots of leg room"
Cons: "No free food or drinks, no explanation for flight delay, no entertainment on board"
Pros: "Just as we were boarding we were told the flight was oversold and we were chosen not to fly...incrediblly poor way to manage the situation as others were volunteeting to take the money reward for not flying"
Cons: "The staff were very slow and rude when I checked in on Friday July 21. I had to pay to check a bag and the credit card machine was not working at the counter. So myself and others had to goto another and this person was very rude and unpleasant. Her machine also was not working and was told to go downstairs to the ATM snd get cash. Which I didn't need and would be charged a fee. Finally my card worked (others were less fortunate). Still the person took forever and was making copies of card numbers on carbon paper I believe to show payment proof. I was uncomfortable with this from a card security perspective and asked her about this. She said it was none of my business and why do I care. I fly many places and this is the worst service I have ever received by an airline. I am also a very friendly person and understand when things can be challenging but this staff of 3 was aweful."
Cons: "It was not mentioned in the tickets that it's without baggage."
Pros: "Crew were friendly, food and drinks (bus class) were free...."
Cons: "Flight was delayed about an hour, got bussed from plane to terminal."
Cons: "Didn't open the counter until 2hrs before flight, wasted time waiting instead of going to business lounge. Kayak didn't advise about cost of checked luggage at reservation time. Not totally unexpected but irritating (blaming kayak here rather than czech airlines)"
Cons: "Super! Very simple and quick)))"
Cons: "Be carefull about luggage extra charges. I booked with luggage but still had to pay 35 € each way, so my good value dissapeared with 70 € extra on top of the ticket´s cost. I dont ´t think it is CSA, it is the agent- I booked through Kayak. I am going to take it further with them. The CSA flight was good, no refreshments on the board. On time, fast luggage unload."
Pros: "Everything except size of restrooms on plane. Everyone from check-in to landing were very professional and polite."
Cons: "Size of restroom on plane."
Pros: "Actually kind of roomy and the beers were like 3 euro on the flight."

Pros: "clean plane"
Cons: "needed to pay for a soda or a glass of water. Did NOT like this!"
Pros: "Flight was on time and Czech airline staff was generally good."
Cons: "CDG airport layout is different from all other airports, and very poorly labeled and signed, staff were very rude. Mo complementary water on board. I got a very dry throat during the flight with no relief."
Pros: "The animations to explain all about the flight. The seats are ok."
Cons: "The machine to pay by card didn't work properly. there is 1 girl that receive payments in cash and if you are gonna pay by card then you have to wait until the other girl who has the machine and is in the other extreme arrives to your place. There was no sandwich or something similar to eat when you are hungry, only simple snacks like chips.. My seat was changed when I was boarding, the girl told me that I would get a better place, but it wasn't true. The crew was not friendly."
Cons: "I was charged an extra 35 euros for each peace of luggage inspite when I was booking I checked the Czech airlines police for luggage and it said one piece for traveler I paid an extra 105eu for my three tickets"
Cons: "had to take a shuttle bus to the runway to board the plane, but this was in an unorganized way which caused us to have to deboard the bus and wait in the December cold for 10 minutes while everyone was funneling onto the plane. No complimentary drinks, snacks for the ~1 hr flight. "Propeller" plane was very noisy"
Pros: "Czech Airlines indeed was really helpful when solving our problem as we book our flight through VAYAMA site leaving on Friday and returning Sunday, then our flight got changed from Friday to Saturday which was not what we book on the first time, so we call VAYAMA support and they were not helpful at all, so we gave it a try calling Czech Airlines and they were super helpful and were able to put us in another flight coming back Sunday. Also booking through VAYAMA a normal fare got us with big surprise at the airport that we did not have a bag included to be document. We could not find any information regarding this on the booking confirmation or on their site and we did pay a fare that according to Czech Airlines lines includes a documented bag. It was not a low cost flight. my recommendation is book through another agency or directly on the airline site to avoid this type of problems."
Cons: "VAYAMA support and the big change on the flight."
Pros: "As with the other European airlines great service."
Pros: "The cabin crew and overall experience on the airline was great."
