Boarding in NCL is really bad. I'm sure part of that is a directive from the airport that KLM can't change but part of that is due to KLM policy. NCL doesn't announce the gate of departure until 30 minutes before departure. However, when you arrive at the gate area, the gate agents file everyone into one long line and everyone boards from one line at one time. This line can stretch for 200m...easily. There is a separate line for groups 1 and 2 but you don't know it until you get to the gate area and agents don't announce/advertise it. Everyone else is grouped into one line. Are you in group 3? Doesn't matter...you board with group 5. Traveling with a child? Tough luck...you're stuck at the end of the line and board last. The last part is very annoying because none of the gates at NCL (with the exception of 1 used by Emirates) has a jetway. To board, you must leave the gate area, walk downstairs, walk onto the tarmac and walk up stairs to board the plane. Highly challenging if you're traveling with small children. That boarding process begs for a concession to allow people with children to board first because they will need extra time. But there is no such policy. Just a really horrible boarding experience all around.
Pros: "The plane condition."
Cons: "The flight attendants could have served some drinks in between the meals. They actually refused to serve something additionally when asked."
Pros: "Almost everything, especially the crew."
Cons: "Don’t feel like anything should be better to be honest"
Cons: "I was seated next to the restroom, which is not a pleasant experience for an international flight."
Pros: "Seat was good"
Cons: "Depart on time (1 hour late), hostess put a laptop in the overhead, which fell out and hit me when the bin was opened"
Pros: "Checkin 1a at Schiphol had long lines, and no seperate counters for just bag drop. My family and I had to wait for 50 mins, to do a bag drop which in,y lasted 1 min! Flight was delayed, without proper announcements."
Cons: "Seat pitch could've been more. At least let us know via Whatsapp that the plane is delayed, or at which belt the bags would come out. This basic info was lacking."
Pros: "Crew were friendly and helpful. Moved me up front in the plane so I could make my connection."
Cons: "Not having to walk outside in Edinbur4gh to board the flight."
Pros: "Seat space a bit tight . I should have upgraded to more leg room . Next time!"
Pros: "And i got it 2 days later. I had to buy a lot of items which were in my suitcase The returning of the suitcase was awfull. In tge end after many phone calls I received it On the 18/12 evening, 2 days after my landing"
Pros: "The flight AMS to MEX was smooth, very helpful personnel on board, we enjoyed a bit more space and the seat seemed a bit more comfortable."
Cons: "Besides the seat relative comfort, it did not recline much at all, i wondered what the extra money (at least $5 or $600) got us. The food, wine/ beer service was same as regular economy, the boarding took place at same time as economy, no drink before take-off if only sparkling water. And the plane was old generation 747 and the entertainment was same vintage: screen was not very bright and the selection of films was poor. No plug to charge electronics. We were disappointed with KLM when comparing with other airline companies offerings when you book in Premium Economy."
Pros: "Direct flight Erie to Charlotte. Glad for that."
Cons: "Not sure why, assuming it’s the plane type, but first time in 35 years my ears continued to pop all the way up and ended up with ear ache."
Pros: "The crew was very accommodating, personable and the communication was good."
Cons: "It's not really fair to blame the crew or the airline forother nature, but my biggest frustration with flying is that the flights always seem to get delayed for one reason or another."
Cons: "Bathroom broken. Broken plane. Stuck on runway with me bathroom and no food or drink for 2 hours before we took off."
Cons: "The seats are extremely restrictive and in a aisle seat I had the gentleman sitting next to me with thighs touching and attendants brushing by me as I squished to left to avoid contact with him. Entertainment screen between center seat and window seat so I just didn't even try to look at it and mostly just leaned forward to have a little space. Also another inch or 2 was taken by person in front of me putting their seat back. With such restrictive space why is this even possible??? Flying has become ridiculous and I try not to as much as I can."
Cons: "Seats (too small and little distance between them) Food (although this time the breakfast was better, AA has the worst food selection compared to other airlines. I just have to get dinner at the airport or eat at the lounge before bording) service is also mediocre, flight attendants are lazy"
Pros: "Nothing to complain about. A nice, calm trip."
Cons: "It would have been nice if members of my group could have flown together instead of being scattered around the airplane."
Pros: "It’s not like it used to be. U S based airlines lag behind their European and Asian counterparts"
Cons: "There’s always room for improvement. Too much to list here"
Cons: "The online information was inaccurate on where the pet relief areas were located and I nearly missed my flight as a result. Need to install more ESA /Supprt animal relief areas to make It more friendly to travelers. Very stressful experience overall"
Pros: "Friendly flight crew and pleasant to interact with."
Cons: "Had a significant delay due to wind conditions in Chicago. However, instead of waiting at the gate, we waited over 45 minutes on the plane instead of letting us know about this additional delay prior to boarding. Also, the legroom was laughable, as the person in front of me hit my knees as soon as he began reclining."
Pros: "Overall the flight was great"
Cons: "I didn’t like the restrictions on the fare and being reminded several time with negative emails from the carrier about the restrictions."
Shame on this company More than 5 hours delay and what a mess Business class with zero service - no pillows, no blankets, no drinks Economy class with no reserved seats- people were mad
Cons: "The people working on the land side lack of a complete sense of service. They are rude, unrespectful and with no professionalism. It is a shame that the last impression you get from Israel is the aggressiveness."
Pros: "Fine flight once we were in the air."
Cons: "There were NO SIGNS saying it was a level flight, not Iberia. No one at Iberia check in desk etc. We eventually figured it out after a while. In general Iberia and level are short staffed and unorganized. If you're willing to deal with this, it's an affordable option and they'll get you from A to B."
Pros: "Left on time, arrived on time, new plan, nice crew"
Cons: "Wi-fi did not work"
Pros: "Even with some departure delays we landed on time."
Cons: "The plane could have used some cosmetic detailing. The door to a cabinet in the bathroom would not shut and caused a problem with people being able to close the bathroom door."
Cons: "The seats are amazingly narrow and uncomfortable for 5 hours flight."
Cons: "The crew is not nice and rude. The checkin counter didnt allow me to have overweight of 300 grams. Ridiculous. At some areas of the plan the air conditioning doesn't work well"

Cons: "Bad service, no drinks offered, hardly any food offered, many kids running in the hallways"
Pros: "The staff was accommodating"
Cons: "The seats were crowded and there was practically no entertainment"
Cons: "For international flights every passenger should be allowed to bring one suitcase for free, I am traveling with my children for family of 6 they charge $70 dollars per person and the grand total charges for suitcases came to $350 dollars. Too much and unfair"
Pros: "The crew was courteous and pleasant. Boarding was quick. Airplane was clean. Blankets were warm. Food was good."

Pros: "More legroom than other airlines, timely and in flight entertainment."
Cons: "The seats were so uncomfortable for such a long flight. And they was not enough space between rows. I felt like cattle. It was in humane. My legs were numb several times during flight. My chair would not recline properly. I’m exhausted. Won’t be booking aireuropa ever again."
Cons: "Bathrooms not maintained, flight delayed after on plane, and only had water offered 1x on the flight even though we were on the plane for about 2 hours longer than planned."

Cons: "One toilet, wasn’t operated well, since it could not be opened from inside-outside"
Pros: "Crew nice"
Cons: "Small and old aircraft, worse food and the entretainment is almost inexistent, you need to use your device to download an app, is ridiculus,"
Pros: "The plane its so big and we arrived in barcelona on time its my second time."
Pros: "No food or drinks included. I know that it is law cost flight but you can give water and a snack ..."
Pros: "Why do I needed to pay at the airport addiction 150 euros for one suitcase? Why was it online included to find out the I have to pay extra? That’s addioanl 30% increase for the price of the ticket. I’ have been using you for a long time and not really happy"
