Separated my family again. What’s wrong with you people.

Delay

Food could be much better.

What a great flight. Would do it again without question.

Very nice experience with Finnair, especially transatlantic flights. Professional crew, excellent service, scheduled on time, headache free environment, very clean and looks like new airplane. Only positive emotions. However, the aircrafts on domestic or short range flights look outdated, and definitely there is room for service improvement.

I was impressed with Iberia! Would definitely fly again!

good service on site, but limited ability to contact the airline directly. Kayaks ability to make changes in a reservation is non existent

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

Pros: "In cabin crew was good. Good service"
Cons: "Crew at gate wasn't really friendly. Made some of us check in our carry ons stating that the flight was full, but I found on the plane that there was tons of overhead space after everyone had boarded. I had a connecting flight to tallin for a conference and was nervous that my checked in carry-on wouldn't make it."
Cons: "We didn't get from Helsinki to Dublin we were redirect via Paris."
Pros: "In JFK the Finnair staff helped us expedite our connection process (the flight from Helsinki was delayed and we hardly had time to make the connection)."
Cons: "The flight was delayed by almost 4 hours. It was a miracle we made our connection in JFK."
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"
Cons: "No kiosk check-in? The airline definitely takes its making pasengers queuei for hours."

Pros: "The flight was spacious, on time and everything went smoothly."
Cons: "-"
Pros: "Excellent"
Cons: "Boarding was horrible. We could not get anyone to confirm a gate, then we were delayed and finally bused into the middle of the tarmac for boarding. A lack of information was extremely stressful and unsatisfying."
Cons: "very little leg room for anyone over 6 feet"
Cons: "I paid for an upgraded seat and after boarding other passengers were being moved to the same area that I had paid for an upgraded seat FOR FREE!"

Pros: "It was cancelled"
Cons: "It was cancelled"
Pros: "Punctual and very good service from friendly crew"
Cons: "They don't give you options about what kind of food you prefer like carne / pasta , there is just one menu option. Any kind of snack between the two meals in a 11 hours flight. If you get hungry you will have to buy snacks on board . No legroom"
Pros: "I've got a lot of attention to my needs with some health issues. Thank you very much."
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: "Food ok. Service fine, grew nice."
Cons: "Last on board no cargo space..Sears are not great. Passenger behind my wife was pounding on the video games I the entertainment system the whole flight."
Pros: "9 month old A380 with dedicated flight crew - everything on time - what more is there to ask for?"
Cons: "Airplane meals tend to be carb-heavy and the food service was no exception. Always a roll or bread but this is normal."
Pros: "Very relaxing, enjoyable flight. Entertainment was great with many different options to choose from (music, tv, movie, games). The plane was not full and I had the entire row to myself, making the flight that much more comfortable. Awesome crew that was attentive and friendly. Probably one of the best flights I've ever been on. Thanks!"
Pros: "It's a direct flight, it runs on time, the staff on the ground and on the flight are professional, courteous, and helpful. If you are lucky enough to have an empty seat next to you, the seating is quite comfortable, with adequate foot and stretching room."
Cons: "For in-flight entertainment, the ceiling-mounted screens along the aisle are hard to see and offer no choices for viewing. The food, as usual, was poor. I ordered vegetarian meals, and on the return trip for both meals was given the same soggy pasta with tomato sauce--no protein (why not add a few chickpeas or white beans?)."
Cons: "For an international flight I have never seen such small seats, the entertainment was awful. My tv was in black and white. I didn't even want to try the food as looked bad."
Pros: "Flight was half empty, room to spread out"
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Seats were tight"
Pros: "Such a delightful flight."
Cons: "Departure late by 25 minutes!!"
Pros: "The crew was mediocre, nothing special. I asked for a extra pillow and was denied. Seats were cramped, I expected more from British Airways but comparing them to China Eastern, I found China Eastern more memorable."
Cons: "I expected more from British Airlines, maybe my expectations and reality didn’t chive?"
Pros: "Food ok and crew nice."
Cons: "The flight was bumpy for 5 hours from USA to England scary ride"
Cons: "Missing information of my flights, such as seat and others"
Pros: "Seats are comfortable"
Cons: "No complementary water on Baird."
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."
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."
Pros: "We didn’t make the flight from London to Rome because of flight delays. there was a huge time delay with our plane sitting on at the terminal and unable to de-board due to scheduling errors. This delay prevented us from making our connection to our next flight and now we are staying in a mediocre hotel for the night and have to wake super early and miss a day of fun at our final desitination. In general I would just move on, but we heard the customer service agent reference that they over booked the two flights to Rome. I guess we were the u lucky customers x two flights because we didn’t get a standby seat in the next flight then the prior agent gave us positive hope that we would get on. Lesson- make sure you have at least 3 hours between connecting flights."
Cons: "Hearing that we were booked on an overbooked flight."
Cons: "not much room. cant explain the boarding. too complicated and required going down stairs."
Pros: "Legroom"
Cons: "Boring entertainment selections"
Cons: "Business class configuration on BA 777"
Pros: "Nice new plane. Spacey."
Cons: "Ba.com app is flaky. Looks like s/w not tested properly"
Pros: "Great crew, quiet flight, good food,"
Pros: "the staff"
Cons: "aircraft, food, entertainment"
Cons: "12 hour delay. Very disappointed with British airways"
Pros: "The crew of British airlines were nice"
Cons: "Changed flight , couldn’t check in. I bought ticked on kayak but vayama was the actual ticket seller on behalf of Iberia which is a British airlines company. I couldn’t check and and customer service of vayama didn’t want to help and asked me to call Iberia. I called Iberia and after staying on hold for 40 min they told me to use the same confirmation number of Iberia flight on British airlines website. After a long day and a long and expensive uber ride I made it to sfo to see the flight has been delayed... never ever ever going to buy an international flight from Iberia, and very hesitant about kayak redirecting sales."
Cons: "Freezing cold cabin"
Cons: "It gave me a different return date"
Pros: "The entertainment was great. The food was enjoyable and happy to see they offer vegetarian choices. Overall great experience."
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."
Pros: "Same"
Cons: "Same"
Cons: "The food."
Pros: "Direct filght"
Cons: "Limited entertainment options"
Pros: "The price of the flight offers is what made me purchase through kayak, but the disconnect with the airline and booking agency left me stranded and ultimately required me to buy a flight directly that will take me almost half a year to pay off not to mention the inconvenience of switching airports and sleeping on a bench for 4hrs."
Cons: "When I missed my flight, the airline would not offer assistance because I booked through an online vendor (webjet through kayak) and when I called webjet they failed to help me rebook, made me buy a new flight, then when I called looking for the flight information, they managed to cancel the flight and then claimed I had requested this when I had done no such thing. On top of this they only offer next calendar day booking so even though they are fully responsible for botching up the second flight I booked. I have talked to 10 individuals from different agencies. Everyone passes blame and responsibility off on someone else. On top of everything else, noone but the American Airlines representatives showed any empathy or concern for my being stranded for the night. Based on this experience, I will do everything in my power to dissuade people from using Kayak, webjet, amadeus and British Airways."
Pros: "All was good"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Large seats, fast service."
Cons: "Nothing."
Pros: "Movie choices were great."
Cons: "I ordered a vegetarian meal well before day of flight. They said they did not have my order. Thankfully there were still vegetarian options (and I was at back of plane)."
Pros: "Staff were nice"
Cons: "Disappointed with the food choice"
Pros: "NA"
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: "Food was ok."
Cons: "One of the worst business class experiences I ever had. Seats are small (7 per row, 3 of which are facing backwards). If you have a non aisle seat you need to climb on top of another passenger to get up (which is unacceptable I'm business class)"
Pros: "Comfort. Entertainment. Service. Comfort. Did i mention it was comfortable? Also dark. Very dark. Which is exactly what you need on a long flight. Food was also exceptionally good for an airline. The bathrooms were also clean and had nice sinks."
Cons: "Nothing."
Pros: "Landed ahead of schedule"
Cons: "Baggage did not arrive as was not put on flight at San Jose despite checking it in 2.5 hours before flight"
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."
Pros: "we got a 787 dreamliner, the coach seats had good space between rows, so we had enough legroom. food - dinner - was tasty, and breakfast was plain but was completely OK. entertainment was excellent, lots of new movies, and also older movies and TV programs. crew was courteous and very helpful, and boarding was quick and smooth. all in all, a very positive experience."
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: "nice modern electronics"
Cons: "breakfast high in calories but very low in pleasure"
Pros: "Good service friendly cabin crew"
Cons: "Food"
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."
Cons: "Food Accommodating bags when space is available"
Cons: "Nasty food! Frozen solid salad."
Cons: "baggage was lost"
Pros: "Timely departure; early arrival. Customer service oriented crew. Due to an oversight on the crews' part (turbulence during distribution of meals), my neighbor and I were not provided meals. When they eventually discovered their oversight and our choice of meal was no longer available, they provided us with meals from first class. Applaud owning a mistake and fixing it."
Cons: "Chair configuration is appalling. Paid extra to sit in exit row of standard economy, seat 30J (middle seat). Leg room was ample, seat width was adequate (for someone of small stature) but separation from neighboring seats was non-existent. My neighbors on either side were both plus-sized. I had nowhere to place my arms and effectively had to sit with my arms folded from SJC to LHR. Room for improvement."
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: "we order kosher food for the flights, on the first flight we recive only for 1 pessanger so on the way back we call few days before to the airlines company to confirm that is kosher food for both passengers and they confirm and again we didnt recive only 1 passanger recive for flight over 20 hours way to be with out food"
Pros: "British Airway's service is cordial and comfortable, which goes a long way to making the entire trip the same. Obviously they have no or little control over potholes in the air and wind turbulence."
Cons: "The flight was scheduled to arrive 2 hours before our connecting BA flight departed Heathrow. Unfortunately because of loading delays on our original flight, we arrived in Heathrow 40 minutes late. The crew said that 60 minutes is the designated minimum but we used all of the 80 minutes plus, and it airport was NOT crowded. If BA is connecting to BA, then you have a responsibility ahead of time to address this problem and keep connecting passengers from getting overly distressed in a strange airport."

I paid for adjacents seats and then changed that and i had to fligtht without muy daugther

.

It was great. Glad to be going home!

The check in was very long, total chaos at Madrid airport.

No service. People don’t speak English … the seats are so close from each orthers : no place for my legs and I 1.75m…

They broke my suitcase :(

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Being able to go home"
Pros: "They had a great selection of movies, each passenger received a blanket and pillow without having to ask, the crew was friendly and professional, and the takeoff and landing were smooth."
Cons: "During the reservation process it seemed that the ticket included luggage, and only when I received the ticket I discovered that I had to pay 30 Euro extra, each way, to check in luggage. The ticket was by no means low-cost, so I don't understand why that wasn't included in the price. And the food could have been much better, I really couldn't eat anything and I usually like airline food... :) Thanks!"
Cons: "Business area crew needs to better service from Bogota to san salvador."
Pros: "Tv, food, blanket with pillow"
Cons: "Everything was wonderful"
Cons: "Boarding procedures are a disaster. The plane arrived early however there was not a gate available for 45-60 minutes. Removal of the bags for customs inspection also took over 45 minutes. We then missed our connecting flight Out luggage made the plane but we didn’t!"
Pros: "Food was good"
Cons: "British airlines delayed flight to my transfer. Missed my transfer to Madrid and got one to London. Leaving from London my flight on British was delayed by 2 hours AGAIN. Not good."

Cons: "The seats are awful."
Cons: "The crew"
Pros: "not enough leg room. Tray too small."
Cons: "the above"
Pros: "The crew was amazing.The seats weren't bad but not super comfortable."
Cons: "The kosher food was excellent and delicious but cold.Our only complaint was that the boss of the crew laughing and making lots of noise when people were trying to sleep.It was great to see people so happy but not during sleep time.I loved the crew.They were very warm and friendly.Boarding was excell"
Pros: "Iberia"
Pros: "Loved the staff. As far as my experience flying Iberia for the first time is concerned, the the staff was very attentive and courteous. The food was not bad either as it was pretty good and included many beverage options. Would like to see how they do for flights lasting longer than 8 hours. Mine was only about 5 and a half hours from Madrid to Tel Aviv."
Cons: "Pedí un resumen del vuelo para ver lo que compré y nunca me llegó."
Pros: "Flew with the company Iberia was very good service ,easy flight ,good food ,all liked"
Pros: "Iberia is awesome, they are so nice and accomodating, I appreciate the time that they spent making me feel comfortable. The food was awesome!"
Cons: "I wish there was a bigger selection of movies and tv-shows to watch."
Pros: "The entertainment system is pretty good. Touch screens work great, and you can charge your phone. The plane itself is fairly up-to-date, and the headrest is adjustable and very comfortable."
Cons: "I am 6' / 183cm and 210lbs / 95 kg. The seats are quite narrow, and little legroom. I don't think I'll fly them again."
Pros: "Crew did get us on standby; more legroom than trans-Atlantic flight"

Pros: "On time, Very professional crew."
Cons: "Could not do online check-in."
Cons: "I was Given different seat at boarding into less comfortable place - no explanation."
Pros: "Nothing in particular. Very standard."
Cons: "Before boarding, crew member had each of us throw our carry on luggage through a hole in the wall (no, they didn't help), down a chute (yeah, a slide... not a motorized belt or anything), watching our luggage hit the ones below. No one was below to catch them, and we saw them slamming into each other, some falling on the ground. Highly disturbing!"
Pros: "Crew"
Cons: "No possibility to order kosher food on the site."
Pros: "short flight, on time"
Cons: "indifferent crew"
Pros: "Very nice crew"
Cons: "Couldn't check in online and couldn't get my boarding pass to my second flight through Iberia, had to do it at Madrid and it was very inconvenient."
Pros: "For a long haul, Iberia's standard class was fine and the seat actually had more room than I expected (having flown them in Europe). One flight attendant was AWESOME and helped me out when my gluten-free meal didn't arrive. I would say she went from ok to friendly so maybe not AWESOME but compared to the other flight attendants who weren't friendly at all, she was good."
Cons: "1. My gluten-free meal didn't arrive. AA pulled the same nonsense when I went from LAX to LHR. It is pretty infuriating. 2. My entertainment screen failed about 1/2 way through the flight. I came prepared but it was still annoying. 3. I pre-paid for a seat which was a hassle because the transaction failed with a cryptic message online and I had to call. When I went to check-in, I had a window, not aisle and was positioned at the very back of the plane. I requested a refund on the phone and that wasn't allowed so I tweeted (as they adverstise) and now filled a claim. Still no response."
Cons: "My flight was cancelled due to weather. BA could not rebook me to get me to Seville in time for my meetings."
Pros: "Usually on time"

Cons: "There is no room for legs he flight was not comfortable .For flight more 5 hours,a plane must be larger,than AB 319"
Pros: "Meal and drinks"
Cons: "Flight was extremely packed and 5 hours long. It was loterlly from hell."
Pros: "Flight was early to Madrid (i.e. shorter duration than planned)."
Cons: "Not enough discipline in the boarding process. No enforcement of the carry-on luggage policy. People were bringing on 3-4 small bags and taking all of the overhead space."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Airline switched to smaller plane after check-in, we were bumped off. Instead of direct flight from Madrid to Tel Aviv, we were routed through Vienna. Instead of 4.5 hours, it took us more than 12."
Cons: "The flight from Madrid to tel aviv was very crowded, no place to hand bag, the seat wasn't comfortable like in a low cost flight. The was no TV, not even music. To bad"
Cons: "NO HUBO ENTRETENIMIENTO, EL AVION NO LO TENIA. EL PASAJE SE SENTIA INTRANQUILO . Y ESO HACE QUEEL VIAJE RESULTE MUY MOLESTO. ALICIA"
Pros: "ש"
Cons: "Not comfatable very basic food"
Cons: "Online check-in didn’t work (and anyway there is no difference if you check-in online when you arrive at the airport). Security checks were very (very) tedious."

Cons: "Paid for baggage on the website but website didnt work and was forced to pay full price in person at airport. Frustrating!"
Pros: "The security and fast boarding"
Cons: "The meal"
Pros: "Overall the crew was nice and helpful"

Cons: "Business seats should really recline all the way."
Pros: "Good quick service from the flight crew."
Cons: "No airline food is really good but this one seemed really unsubstantial."
Pros: "Flights were on time."
Cons: "Couldn't access the website to add luggage. Couldn't choose seat on check-in - even though I strongly prefer aisle (and my frequent flyer preferences show this) I was assigned a window seat on the way back and couldn't change it. Seats are very cramped. When the person in front of me reclined I coul"

Pros: "They let people with kids board first"
Cons: "Had the worst seats on the plane. we were in the back row next to the bathroom and by the flight attendants. The flush of the bathroom was so loud that it kept waking my kids and I up...also the flight attendants constant scurrying around our seats made it impossible to sleep. Not looking forward to the flight back"

Cons: "I ordered and paid for one backage to send and I was asked to pay becuse was not updated"
Cons: "Kosher food is very meager."
Cons: "Every thing"
Cons: "I did not like the problem with getting seats assigned, confirming the ticket purchase, being able to print a concise itinerary, and not text as alerts for final flight arrival. There app was a joke. All they the app to do is book/sell flights and nothing more. They just want you to call on the phone and never add any feature to benefit their customers. They have good programers their but refuse to pay them to make their app as good as the other airlines."
Pros: "Everythingnone"
Pros: "Excellent condition excellent comfort"
Cons: "All fine"
Pros: "The crew was really nice"
Cons: "It's the 2nd time my luggage has been delayed/lost, and I really needed it for the next day since it had my work clothes/hospital info/stethoscope in it.

Pros: "direct flight"
Cons: "no entertainment in long flight small leg room kids in especial seats disabled the option of moving the seat in front row food - taistless"
Cons: "Spent most of the flight watching a good film but the system was shut in the final scene So annoying!!!"
Pros: "The crew were fine, Katia is EXCELENT."
Cons: "The poor chief stewardess was arguing for 1/2 an hour (!) or more with someone who sat in an empty seat next to emergency door. I understand that she has to do this - give her a break!! Big deal! You are SO small minded - charging 3$ for snacks that cost you 40 cents at most, in order to earn you... what - an extra few hundred $'s in the flight? Isn't this rather stupid of you? p.s. Katya is a wonderful stewardess"
Pros: "on time, friendly crew"
Cons: "old plane, no GPS, tiny video screen far away, revolting food both ways"
Pros: "I liked the security, and the Crew, they were very nice and friendly."
Cons: "There is no entertainment system. Kids didn't like the kids menu. Vegan dish was Great. Seats are not comfortable."
Cons: "Lowest expectations"
Pros: "20 Years I avoided this airline due to lousy service. the team on this flight and previous one from Tel aviv to BCN were A OK"
Cons: "Not enough blankets on return flight"
Pros: "i like that I arrived safely. No delays."
Cons: "I didn't like nor appreciate how the staff interrogated me and treated me prior to boarding the flight. I understand that they have high security, but their attitudes are nasty and inhumane. So therefore I will never fly them again. Not to mention my luggage didn't make it. I had to go on without my luggage. They inspected and reinspected every single item on my carry on for like an hour in a different room. Kinda scary.! Other airlines check the bags in front of the passengers. Horrible experience and I travel a lot and had never experienced anything like that. Almost didn't feel welcome to be traveling to Israel. The flight attendants have attitudes and they yelled at me because I didn't speak or understand hebrew. Food on the plane is horrible too."
Pros: "Received water during the flight. Arrived safely at my destination."
Cons: "Upon arrival to the airport, I was pressurized by the "UP" check-in desk staff to send my carry-on to the plane's hold because "the flight is packed and we prefer that you do so". I didn't argue, but this just gives an overall bad impression and certainly does not shed positive light on the company's competence and professionalism. The flight itself was delayed because of insufficient carry-on space in the upper compartments - carry-ons had to be taken off to the hold - something that created a noticeable delay, add to that the dismay of many irked passengers and the expected complaining and hopeless pleas to the flight attendants. The plane took off 20+ minutes late. The fact that this is "low cost" is no justification at all for such a chaos."
Pros: "Crew was kind."
Cons: "My husband and I never want to fly El Al ever again because the planes are completely outdated and somehow tickets are still full price. Every time we fly El Al the entertainment doesn't work, the screens are ridiculously small, the seats are cramped and the bathrooms are a mess. Every other airline we have used that costs the same or less is a completely different, and better, experience."
Pros: "Checking in. There was a problem with the tickets we ordered but there was a man named Joshua Dadana who was compassionate, helpful and professional who worked his best along with others whose names I did not write down to catch the flight to Israel. I would highly recommend your airline."
Pros: "Well, they were on time. Shockingly."
Cons: "I don't know how El Al gets away with serving people their so-called nightly "meal". They have the audacity to tell passengers it's a "tapas" meal. Tapas has nothing to do with it. You can choose between tuna salad (tuna drowned in mayo with mostly peppers) or chicken with tahini (mostly peppers again, with two small cubes of chicken drowned in tahini). They give you this with a small salad, pita and industrial hummus which is probably the best thing about this meal. Having being burned by this meal last time - they ran out and I got a "glatt kosher" meal - I took the vegetarian option, which was roasted peppers, salad made from 80% lettuce, 20% peppers and no dressing and an inedible cookie. I am allergic to peppers. There is no entertainment to speak of, because El Al sees no reason to update its planes, and there is no personal entertainment system. You can download an app to your phone called "Dream Stream", and stream some options from El Al, but then you have no where to charge your phone, so what's the point? The seats are ridiculously close together, and if someone leans back you really can't eat. Finally, I have no idea why they do this - but El Al flights from Europe don't attach to the terminal via ramp. You get out of the plane on a staircase, in the middle of the night, in the pouring rain, and then have to take a bus to the terminal. It's not like all ramps are busy at 4AM..."
Cons: "nothing"
Pros: "The food was good, it arrived on time. The film was interesting. The temperature was pleasant"
Cons: "I did not like the seat It was hard to watch TV, I had to bend my neck all the time. I had pain in my neck all the flight. I wish the chair could have been less erect. It was easier to put my head on the chair in front than on the back of my chair"
Pros: "The fast of Taanis Esther started at about 4:30am in the morning. The crew was kind enough to serve breakfast earlier than usually to accommodate those who were fasting. They probably had to sacrifice an hour or two of their own sleep, but it was really appreciated by the passengers. The crew should be complemented!"
Cons: "I sat in a seat with something under the seat in front of me. I couldn't completely turn off the screen in front of me."
Cons: "The seats were incredibly uncomfortable sitting in coach sitting. El-al should replace the seats for this plane. It felt almost like sitting on a piece of wood. Also entertainment options were very poor for a 11 hour flight from Boston."
Pros: "new entertainment system was nice"
Cons: "flight was late to arrive, and late to take off, plane was full and crowded. no leg room. food was rather poor"
Pros: "They had the perfect shows on the plane, the crew was very nice and positive"
Cons: "In both flights they had a problem with times and scheduele"
Cons: "Early chekin system deliberately alocated separat sieats for me and my wife, despite I cheked in 23 hours befor take off. The cabin crew was very unfrendly. The bording prosses was slow, messy and unplesent."
Pros: "Personal is very good. Helped us very quickly to change sits to something more preferable for us."
Cons: "Chairs are not comfortable at all. Food is low quality"
Cons: "Crew at the check in were rude, would not let us return the same handheld suitcases we came with, required we check them in, one which they did let us take was required to be measured again with the "cage" at the gate. The temperature on boath flights was very high even with max airflow. We were not allowed to bring abroad bottled water which we had bought at the duty free at the airport, and the aircraft chair would not recline and was extremely crowded with almost no leg space. Will not recommend!"
Cons: "time table was created to keep it it is not working with elal"
Pros: "We paid a full price and received a service of a low cost flight. Airplane was extremely uncomfortable, food- instead of breakfast- poor sandwiches with no choice for vegan. No earphones or music. It's a shame for el al to charge so high for such a chip and uncomfortable flight and service."
Pros: "everything!!!"
Cons: "nothing."
Cons: "i am a guide arranging groups to Rome. I arrived 3 hours before the flight - as is required, to find an under-staffed security check . My group of 20 people , some of which were over 80 years old , had to stand 2 hours in line before they where approached. For those that collapsed there were only about 12 chairs in the entire space, for the multitudes that were coming for the flight. i will never fly El -Al to Rome with my groups again, and will not accept the claim that this is "the Ministry of Security" (as the security checkers claimed) , unless i receive an answer to assure that this is to be amended. i purchased tickets from ElAl - and they must provide better standards for and during their security issues."
Pros: "My name is irit marko 0502931085 Please call me The crew was not nice"
Cons: "You charged my suitcase that was empty.i checked on line i did not see any thi g i tried to call no answer.i explain them that the suitcase was empty .my daugter start school there and we brought a lot of thing.the staff was impatient and not nice.we flew with other airline to larnka they were nice and understand the problem.my daugter is going to school there to medical school she and our family are not going to fly with you.they charge me 60 u more then the flight.very grify"
Cons: "Same movie in the flight to FRA and back.... Also there was no sound channel which sounded normal. all of them had some strange overlay of translation in foreign language and crew did not know how to fix it. My kids did not like the food at all although it was pasta with bolognese source that every kid likes - don't know how they messed this up. Flight was delayed by 1:15 hrs. Luggage took very long time to get out."
Pros: "It eventually ended."
Cons: "Someone on the previous flight threw up in my seat, it was never cleaned, it just soaked in. Flight crew swapped out the cover after 10 min of arguing with them but it stunk horribly. Mid way thru the flight I got up and when I lifted the seat belt I realized there was more vomit in the latch. No power adapters. Movies were super old and my screen was broken so I couldn't watch anyway. Music loop included Dolly Parton!"
