Flight attendants were gruff. Told us we could not have a second snack. I’ve never heard such a thing. Maybe we did not pay for the flight.

Flight attendants were gruff. Told us we could not have a second snack. I’ve never heard such a thing. Maybe we did not pay for the flight.

Adequate leg room Crew were nice and professional

They could have told us that we needed to order food ahead of time.

The obvious, the seats are too small. Great flight and nice staff. It was nice to be informed what was happening during the whole experience.

The flight was delayed both ways. The staff wasn't that great.

Pros: "On-time"
Cons: "From reservation I was put off. Immediately after booking the flight on line I realized I made a mistake and called Kulula to explain the wrong month was selected. It took forever to correct this and literally cost the same to rebook a whole new flight. One would have thought that a mistake found within minutes would have been able to be corrected as part of their customer service but clearly not. I fully accept the mistake was on my part but as a regular international and regional traveler, I’ve had better experiences with other airlines when you run into problems. Lesson learned. Don’t make a mistake with Kulula. They will make you regret it. The plane on boarding was hot and very smelly. All eats and drinks are to be purchased. Otherwise the rest of the flight"
Pros: "Price"
Cons: "The entire experience. Endless delays, coughing crew, stupid instructions, delays on end with no explanation or apology."
Cons: "Crew wasn’t particularly outstanding, they did a fine job. Not proactive at all. Pleasant when asked."
Cons: "Plane was old and tired. Food choices very limited."
Pros: "Flight was safe"
Cons: "I was not given a seat until about 10 minutes before boarding despite having arrived hours early; the flight was delayed, I was not able to charge my phone despite there being a USB outlet on the seat back (it didn’t work somehow), and no snacks except a cookie"
Pros: "Crew was friendly, great entertainment"
Cons: "Temperature inside the plane was freezing cold, ran out of snacks & small bottled water for premium economy"
Pros: "Crew was very nice and professional."
Cons: "Turbulence. Assigned a seat that doesn’t recline"
Pros: "Surprised to find seat was comfortable.."
Pros: "The crew was friendly :)"
Cons: "Not to the fault of our flight/crew, but our flight was delayed by about an hour due to another plane that needed mechanical attention and blocked the unloading/loading area."
Pros: "The crew was nice and we enjoyed the inflight entertainment"
Cons: "The flight was a hour late and we almost missed our connecting flight they actually had to hold the plane for us"
Pros: "The landing at PDX was the best I've ever experienced, bar none!"
Cons: "The cabin crew from Florida to LA weren't oriented to Alaska Airlines Sips and seemed discombobulated with their service...no one seemed to know who was responsible for specific service options. One attendant had a short skirt on. An in flight emergency, she would have been useless"
Pros: "Premium economy seats were great."
Cons: "Bring your own ear buds or headphones."
Pros: "Friendly crew. Loved the chargers on the seat and in flight entertainment."
Cons: "N/a"
Pros: "Crew did a great job with full, delayed flight. Alaska kept delay under control."
Pros: "Great crew and they went the extra mile for their customers"
Cons: "Most uncomfortable seat I have sat in and 9 hrs made it worse."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Cramped plane. Unfriendly staff. Broken seats. Not even a bag of peanuts. Dirty. Will not fly Alaska again. First time and made horrible impression."
Pros: "Crew was friendly and beverage service quick. Really hot coffee the best! Great arrival time. I would consider flying Alaska Airlines again."
Cons: "Alaska reassigned my seat to the back wall. Did not recline. Next to the restroom so an intrusive situation. Only 2 items available for PURCHACE on a 745AM departure. Alaska did not tell us baggage claim is in two different terminals or which terminal to use. Seems it could be better organized."
Pros: "Left on time, smooth ride, arrived early"
Cons: "Was in first class front row. I was offered only one drink the entire 6.5 hour flight. The flight attendant in first class never came around and asked if i would like anything else. The potatoes served with the meal were not cooked completely and they let the entire coach section use the forward bathroom so it was like sitting at the very back. Had to wait several times for several others before i could use the first class lavatory. They didn't turn off the cabin lights until very late in the flight so we could sleep. The flight attendant(s) in first class were not friendly. Wifi was horrible and almost not useable. Definitely not worth the $29 I had to pay. I fly this trip regularly and are almost always delighted but this trip was disappointing to say the least."
Pros: "Cheap direct flight. Comfortable seats with headrests and personal TVs with great free movie selections."
Cons: "Don’t forget to bring a headphone adapter for the old school jacks. (They’re supposed to have earbuds on the flight but they were sold out)"
Pros: "Movies were free"
Cons: "We were delayed for over three hours, then food was delayed after we not eating for hours and hours. The seats are the smallest seats I’ve ever sat in on a plane. Can barely fit a small carry on sized bag under the seat in front of me. Ran out of food less than half way through the flight. Offered zero compensation."
Pros: "Comfortable seats & food was okay"
Cons: "Issues with payment as they said “due to booking through kayak” and it delayed my check-in and again when boarding... and then had to pay again in order to board the plane. They flight was then delayed an additional 1.5hr due to “emergency pieces missing”. They also lost my bag... and I’m traveling across the country with an infant."
Pros: "Leg room"
Cons: "Lousy wifi"
Pros: "Partnership with Virgin. Drink orders."
Cons: "boarding process didn’t go by the script and was a mess"
Pros: "all was good trip and service nothing to criticize"
Pros: "Free entertainment on your devices, free soda, and boarding was pretty efficient"
Cons: "The dry cookies need to be replaced. Please bring back pretzels."
Cons: "Ground crew made a mistake at departure gate, causing 45 min delay. At destination, the gate was not ready causing additional 30 min delay. 100% avoidable delays meant I had to run through the airport to catch my bus, which only ran hourly."
Pros: "I was in an exit row and it was so nice and spacious. Boarding was easy."
Cons: "Mix up when we landed - had to sit on the tarmac for about half hour before a a slot opened up to park the plane."
Pros: "Staff was cordial"
Cons: "Seats were narrow. I'm not overweight, and I have no idea how fat people fit. I'm certainly pleased that I wasn't sitting next to someone big."
Pros: "Great exit row seat! Great free entertainment! Got on an earlier connecting flight for free!"
Pros: "Excellent crew."
Pros: "Staff is always helpful and pleasant - text messages about flight changes/departures/gate changes, etc - always updated! And love the usb for charging phone."
Pros: "Crew was amazing!"
Cons: "N/A"
Pros: "Excellent, quick service. Luggage picked up and brought down efficiently from the plane."
Cons: "Passengers weren't informed prior that the walk to the plane was very long."
Pros: "Flight crew were great. Super friendly and attentive."
Cons: "Seats suck. My back is wrecked now."
Pros: "I was in first class so that's the better experience. I would have been even unhappier in coach."
Cons: "Seat, despite being first class, was not comfortable I asked for a blanket before takeoff and was told there aren't any on board. No blankets for an 8 hr red eye??? No pillow either. Flight attendants never asked if I wanted another beverage after initial service. It was an 8 hr flight. The first class meal was a tiny cheese plate. I was starving. For a $900 1 way ticket, I expect more of this airline Flight attendants seemed like they didn't want to be there. Wasn't feeling the love. it was a 12:30am flight. We are all tired, but c'mon. Smile a little."
Pros: "nice free cookies"
Cons: "late departure, late arrival, and then we sat motionless on the tarmac for 20 minutes for our gate to be ready"
Pros: "Flight attendants were quick and efficient during a medical emergency."
Cons: "We had two hard landings (in Seattle and again in Ontario - same crew) and hit turbulence coming in toward Ontario that literally forced a flight attendant to her knees in the aisle."
Pros: "Crew on flight was good. We left late but made up the time in flight."
Cons: "We purchased 2 one way tickets and were given confirmation of purchase. When we arrived at airport to check in we were told we were on standby only. If we could not get on the flight then the soonest we could fly out was 48+ hrs away, arriving in Seattle at 2 AM on Monday morning. we had no one available to pick us up, we live 1 hr away from airport. After many announcements and many incentives offered 2 young ladies did give up their seats and we could get on. The flight went well but we were extremely upset with the promise of confirmation and the obvious overbooking. It probably is what many airlines do but not good customer service was given to us. We often fly Alaska but this was a bad experience."
Pros: "More cookies!!! Please! Traveled with a toddler. Crew arranged for us (2 adults and a toddler) to have a 3 seat row to ourselves. Very thoughtful and considerate."
Cons: "Not enough cookies!"
Cons: "I lost my connection due to migration. An I had to pay for one hotel night and another flight to Seattle"
Pros: "Moved quickly and in orderly fashion served in the air timely manner"
Cons: "Cabin temperature was to hot and air vents did not work as well as other airlines. With so many on board the heat gets hotter over long periods of time Like with this 5+ hr flight"
Pros: "The flig t had a delayed departure so I was given a voucher for $12 to get something to eat. In this day and age I thought that was very thoughtful. Also a representative handed each passenger a chit with instructions for a discount on a future flight. Again a thought act instead of a flat response!"
Cons: "Lack of space between passengers."

All are ok

I was so happy and at ease with the crew 100 %the best ever

Ground Staff in SFO were rude

Did not get bassinet seat for my infant. Qatar airways sold the bassinet seat to adults and we travelled with our infant on our lap

I didn’t travel due to families deaths 3 days 14th Jan I cancel my reservations thanks

Needs to improve

I request for vegetarian food but they are asking me what kind of food you want. Service is slow.

This flight was cancelled

Pros: "Great crew! Excellent business class suite"
Cons: "Travel insurance that I purchased 80+ dollars was useless because I couldn’t use do anything to change my flight date"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Need improvements"
Pros: "They help get passengers to seat and with their luggage"
Cons: "They insist to wake you up if sleeping to ask if you want to eat instead of leaving you alone!"
Pros: "Perfect"
Cons: "Perfect"
Cons: "They do not understand the word priority at Doha airport. Business class passengers boarded last."
Pros: "N/A"
Cons: "We were told to board, but then kept in another area close on 1 hour before we could get on the plane and this area had no bathroom facilities. The spread of seating on the plane made no sense with many open seats but also many squashed rows of people. The crew was visibly tired and irritated, they also ran out of a few catering items. It seemed as if last minute, a few different flights were combined into this one which lowered the quality."
Pros: "Food and leg room"
Cons: "All was fine"
Pros: "Everything was great, as the flight wasn't full, so we could relax"
Cons: "The vegetarian option for breakfast was a stale waffle with apple compote. Inedible."
Pros: "Food selection. However, the snacks need to be readily available on long flights."
Cons: "Entertainment is lacking behind other international carriers"
Pros: "Left on time, arrived on time. Children aboard did not cry !uch."
Pros: "Crew excellent"
Cons: "Baggage collection at Washington could be improved"
Pros: "The crew were very friendly and helpful."
Cons: "It seems the major airlines use older aircraft when the destination of the flight is a third world country(or Africa). The seats aren't as comfortable and the entertainment system (screens) are not as good as a Qatar and Europe bound flights."
Pros: "The flights attendants were very helpful and polite. What I enjoyed the most was the level of comfort I had. I was able to sleep for almost the entire flight. That's why it felt like it wasn't even a long flight."
Cons: "We did leave a little late but it was out of the control of the pilots and flights attendants."
Pros: "There was adequate seat room. The device was good."
Cons: "There was nothing I didn’t like."
Pros: "Staff was great"
Pros: "Thank you for a very good flight experience both from Philadelphia to Doha and Doha to Johannesburg."
Cons: "The breakfast options could have been better, but I was fed and happy, and the flight attendant was kind enough to bring me green tea when it wasn’t readily available on the cart."
Pros: "Extra leg room, very courteous crew, and pretty decent food. What’s not to like? I have had only very good experiences with Qatar so far."
Pros: "I haven't flown with Qatar for several years, but my memories of an exceptional experience were replicated. Fantastic modern aircraft, brilliant crew and great food."
Cons: "Only one minor gripe, the passengers seated behind me talked incessantly, making my attempts to sleep impossible. I asked if there were any ear plugs available, but none could be found. My own fault, I should have packed my own."
Cons: "Seat to LA was broken"
Pros: "I was surprised with the quality of gluten free meals served for me, it was well organised and taken care of where I never had to wait. My flight schedules were changed few days before departure by Qatar Airways, but only thing I had to do was to confirm that I have noted, my seats and all the rest of details intact, excellent."
Cons: "When the flight is changed by airline for their convenience, they would have given preferential treatment to the passengers involved. We had to bare the cost of food and make us comfortable on our own due to the delay in transit."
Pros: "The crew aboard the flight were kind and thoughtful and definitely oriented toward service."
Cons: "The security process at the gate was really disorderly. Perhaps it is because it is a new and extra step required by the US but it was definitely not efficiently handled."
Cons: "Same as above"
Pros: "The friendliness of the staff from check in to arrival!"
Pros: "I freceuntly fly between the US and South Africa and only fly via Qatar Airways, and every experience thus far has been great. The food is good quality, friendly crew and I would recommend it to anyone."
Cons: "The sandwiches are a little dry and movie selection a little limited."
Pros: "Good legroom, friendly crew."
Pros: "Good, attentive service by the crew."
Pros: "Unfortunately..."
Cons: "...as mentioned, I don't have the pleasure of rating this flight because of the boarding delays and missing the flight. Very disappointing."
Pros: "Our meals were luke warm at best while the bread was still semi frozen. Food quality has always been low on Qatar flights but this time was the absolute worst. I fly with Qatar for work everything 4 months and that's solely due to convenience."
Pros: "Great selection of movies and tv shows"
Cons: "Entertainment screen is too dim even on highest brightness setting"
Pros: "Service of air stewards very friendly and polite"
Cons: "This goes for Qatarfigjta from harare to Doha and Doha to Washington DC and back. I am not going to give individual report on each one. Food - my daughter could barely eat anything and the vegetarian meals were stone cold most of time. It was hard to eat at Qatar airport because not only is the food terrible (Burger King and bad Asian food) but outrageously expensive. Our media system did not work for one leg. ** way to many ads on your media system. Every time you watch a new TV episode, you have to sit through 5-6 ads for stuff that is not interesting and the same each time. ** plane info on media system keeps reverting to Arabic even when English is indicated as preferred la gauge. We had to place our iPads in checked luggage for flights from harare to USA as we went through Qatar. *** I asked for quiet seats and was given seats near kitchen and toilet even though I booked in hours in advance. One leg had my ten year old daughter and I in different rows even though I checked in 4-5 hours in advance Of flight . ** staff moved my hand luggage without my permission and without informing me - it was stressful trying to find it."
Pros: "Excellent experience overall, the food was decent, the seats were comfortable and had enough space for me at 6ft tall, the staff were very friendly and helpful, entertainment selection was good with plenty of new movies out. I had no problems with my layover. The baggage allowance was great as I had extra luggage from my trip. I'm very happy with their customer service, the day before my first flight I received a phone call from Qatar's customer service saying that due to delays I wouldn't be able to make my connecting flight to Edinburgh so they would like to book me on another flight instead of me having to wait 24 hours in Doha. I was thoroughly impressed with this service."
Cons: "I did not have wifi available from Doha-Johannesburg"
Pros: "Food and entertainment"
Cons: "There was a rude counter staff when we checked in in Singapore."
Pros: "Great crews, excellent airplanes, wonderful in transit experince."
Cons: "In flight coach meals were average."
Pros: "On time departure, friendly crew. Comfortable seats for economy class, plenty of entertainment options. A pleasant experience"
Cons: "The food was okay. The hot wrap/calzone served first was not very tasteful. The breakfast/brunch was better. Not much to dislike overall."
Pros: "Again on time and effortless boarding made the overall experience a good one."
Cons: "Our suitcase was damaged...still in the process of trying to get it fixed. Hopefully it will be done soon. I will then update this report. Could maybe clean the toilets as it did become a bit messy."
Pros: "Enjoyed the personal attention and charming personality of the flight crew!"
Cons: "Can't think of any!"
Pros: "Excellent customer service, smooth boarding, good food."
Pros: "Truly give star service for business class"
Pros: "The service from the crew was amazing"
Cons: "The food was not bad compared to some air lines"
Cons: "Arrival in Johannesburg was a nightmare due to queues at immigration - I nearly missed my connecting flight. This was not the fault of Quatar airlines but needs to be taken up with the authorities at OT Airport in Johannesburg"
Cons: "Turn on the lights before landing graduallyb- noone likes bright fast - too nasty;"
Pros: "Baggage handlers extremely fast"
Cons: "The boarding process was awful. The gate agent was extremely rude - was shocked she was representing Delta. There was police on board arresting two passengers and crew was not saying anything."
Cons: "Too many flight delays and gate changes"
Pros: "The crew was light spirited. Took the angst out of the long stressful wait"
Cons: "Punctuality. Flight was 2 hours late"
Pros: "Lift off and landing was excellent"

Cons: "N/a. It was fine"
Pros: "Great movies."
Cons: "Seats won’t stay reclined."
Cons: "Slight delay of flight"
Cons: "1. Board the plane from back to front! It is ridiculous the way it is currently done. 2. Get people to announce boarding who speak CLEAR English. 3. Further limit carry-on luggage."
Pros: "I like how friendly the crew was"
Cons: "Our flight was delayed by an hour and we had a connecting flight IN ATL that we had to get to in :30 minutes. By the time we got off the plane we had :15 minutes to get to our connecting flight. We barely made it. They were about to close the door on us. Didnt really appreciate that."
Cons: "Flight was delayed."
Pros: "Loved being in first class"
Cons: "Hated gate change and late plane at the last minute."
Cons: "Boarding is as usual chaotic"
Pros: "Boarded fast"
Cons: "Woman next to me with crying baby didn’t care that her baby’s head and arms where pretty much in my seat the whole flight. And the girl in front of me was wildly dancing the whole flight in her seat with headphones on and she get pushing back in her seat hitting my knees And every announcement the flight attendant made during the flight sounded like he was stoned and obviously didn’t care what he was saying"
Pros: "Timing of the flight and the luggage step by step notification"

Pros: "The pretzels"
Cons: "Our return flight had no TV screens :-( And no blankets ...was freezing as we got closer to nyc"
Pros: "crew was professional and seats werre comfortable. flight departed late but arrived on time."
Cons: "nothing to say."
Cons: "That's the flight is clean"
Pros: "The plane was really cool. Some more advanced technologies than other Airline companies. Crew was good too."
Cons: "Issue happened with my landing. Didn't make it in time to next gate. Delta did everything they could to blame me, insulted me on The phone and definitely provided the worst customer service"
Cons: "Flight was changed. Missed an important event"
Pros: "What I USED to like was the no hassle, no problems getting the tickets right through landing on the tarmac."
Cons: "I had a family emergency and because I had used a mileage ticket (as opposed to a paid ticket) I was told that I needed to give them 72 hours notice. I tried to explain that I had no control over the situation. It fell on deaf ears. I was so upset and frustrated that I could barely speak. My miles are now lost as the entire round trip ticket was cancelled and I have no way to regain all those miles that I wasted. It was the first time Delta did not come through for me and I must say, it's left a very bitter taste in my mouth. I couldn't believe that there isn't some provision (there is if I had paid for my ticket) and have lost all those miles that I use to fly Delta. So much for customer service."
Cons: "Nothing special - just ok - tight leg leg room was expected - no entertainment at all - wifi very slow and couldn't load a book for my almost blind father - just ok"
Pros: "Friendly staff. Very accommodating."
Cons: "Wifi never works. I wanted to charge my phone, but my outlets weren't working, either (my neighbor had no issues). Kinda sucked considering I was planning on working on my flight to New York. The AC was blasting humid air, so it was extremely uncomfortable."
Pros: "i was able to use wifi during the flight which made the time pass by fast."
Cons: "i asked one of the ladies if they had blankets since the plane was freezing she told me no but everyone in first class recived a blanket whether they used it or not. i guess the people in zone 2 and zone 3 dont matter. the seats are the worst! they dont even sit at a 90 degree angle your more like sitting forward."
Cons: "Delta didnt wrap car seat in plastic while it was raining so it was soaked"
Cons: "Our flight was delayed by an hour, which didn't really affect me, as Detroit was final stop. However, there were a large amount of people on the flight with connecting flights coming into Detroit. I am POSITIVE that several of those people missed their connecting flights as the flight attendants and crew did not allow for them to leave the plane first. As people seem to be so self-centered anymore, the attendants should have announced that people were not to leave until all passengers with connecting flights had left the plane. Very sad that people can't use common courtesy all by themselves, but as they can't, it should have been enforced by the team on the plane."
Pros: "Crew was fantastic and I really enjoyed having multiple USB ports to keep my devices charged."
Pros: "Plenty of give on seat belt, just enough leg room for my 6' frame. No one was seated in the middle seat!"
Pros: "Flight was smooth and uneventful, comfort plus seat was comfy and sky priority lines were nice perk."
Cons: "No food / no entertainment at all. Not that I cared. Ran out of overhead compartment space fast."
Cons: "I could not print my boarding pass, get it on email, get it at the airport. A waste of their time and mine. And makes no sense. It is some new policy of Delta. Not good"
Cons: "No in flight entertainment"
Pros: "The crew was amazing. We had a two hour delay on the ground due to thunderstorms, but the pilot kept us informed and the flight attendants answered any questions and helped with everything. The pilot even walked down the isle asking people if they had any questions."
Cons: "We booked our tickets through American Express over 3 months before the flight. Delta has a new policy that these tickets are not allowed to have certain privileges that tickets purchased on their own site have. Unbeknown to us, one of these is the ability to select your seat. On the ride from CVG to FLL we were assigned seats in the back of the plane, but at least we were next to each other. On the way back, we were not assigned a seat at all. We arrived to the airport almost 4 hours before the flight and were still not assigned a seat and were told we would have to speak to the gate agent. Even we when spoke to the gate agent, they still did not have a seat. It was not until we had already started the boarding process that they called us up and told us that we were going to be sitting 5 rows apart, both in a middle seat."
Cons: "Everything was ok"
Pros: "on time and organized"
Cons: "food wouldn't be enough even for a two year old"

Seats are not very comfortable. Movie was lagging all the time. Crew very nice.

It was a very good value for money so I really do not think there is anything to complain.

Good hot food. The toilets needed more attention as had run out of hand towels and bins overflowing, one toilet out of service.

The food provided from LA to London was pretty bad! Much better from London to LA.

Everything was superb. The music selection is limited and please include some current news which is important for travelling business people.

The Airbus A330 used on this leg needs to be refurbished. The seats are all damaged, the in-seat power did not work (both 110v outlets and USB outlets) - the IFE screen looked like it was about 10 years old and would not stay unfolded, it just kept flopping down. At one point the flight attendant offered to "fetch some tape" to hold it in place for the flight. I felt very bad for her that she had been put in a position where this was even a reasonable suggestion to have to make.

The planes auxiliary engine wasn't working, which meant we had no a/c when the plane was sat on the apron leading to very high temperatures before take off and on landing at orlando

Dumped us at a stand and buses took ages to show up.

Being able to fly direct from Seattle to London made a long trip less arduous. The flight was efficient, decently comfortable, and well-priced.

I enjoyed my flight, very comfortable and good communication.I liked the fact that there was acknowledgement of staff shortage and reassurance to provide excellent service! Shout to Ian and colleagues who helped me find a window seat, my phone and passport i miss placed when i had a little panic.please do share this with virgin atlantic !!!! The Pilot was the best!

Check in is poorly marked Heathrow lounge was excellent, service very good New Virgin upper class suites technically qualify as business class but they are very cramped and there is no storage space at all. No sleep suits available in my size, on any of the flights. Rather leave it if you can't deliver. Toiletry bag is cheap and tacky. Compare with the price paid for a business class ticket.

Ease of check in to boarding. Clean Aircraft. Food was of poor quality

Comfortable flight. Lots of space.

First time I traveld with virgin Atlantic and service is good flight is also very good.

DELTA didn't accommodate for me being a celiac. Despite my request and lengthy online chats. Wait times to talk to someone varied between 2 1/2 and 6 1/2 hrs. Terrible service.

Had a brillant flight from LAX and the lady that check us in at LAX on the vs6848 flight to Manchester was outstanding ! And deserves recognition! She was patient with when we were paniced about us been late and havibg five chikdren under five...she kept us clam... reassured us and booked our bags..ensure my elderly mother had assistance and also waited for my husband who had gone to the toilet and jad got himself lost in the airport. We made it to the plan on time... please fjnd that lady as I really want her to be recognized The plane was of high standard and we got the seats thats worked well with our large family My email is lubanzu.ssbs@yahoo.co.uk if you need more information.

Lounge in Heathrow is great. Staff aim to please and very courteous. The upper class seat is very narrow with no storage area. Strange seating position, no options to recline the seat while sitting up. Who thought that this was a good idea? IFE minimal. On borard Lavs shared with premium economy class.

Pros: "This is the way to fly long haul."
Cons: "Frustration is it is impossible to sleep during the breakfast service, but this is a problem for all airlines and Virgin is better than most."
Pros: "Crew was great !!!"
Cons: "Seating in upper class is uncomfortable and bedding is not fresh."
Pros: "Very friendly crew. The meals are good, nice variety. Hot food is hot."
Cons: "Seats are not the most comfortable and sometimes the screen on the entertainment tv doesn't work that easily."
Pros: "The boarding was fast."
Cons: "For starters our cabin crew were the worst. The first service I had ask for a snack and no napkins. Dinner service was like just chucking food down in front of you. Then a stewardess looks me dead in the face and passed me for the drink service, then she said she thought I was asleep."
Pros: "I had one of the few empty seats next to me."
Cons: "The food is awful. Not enough toilets."
Pros: "Good collection of movies"
Cons: "To pay for luggage for international flights while on their website it says i dont have to pay if im going to South Africa. The food was not so great."
Pros: "Service, pilot updates, and seating were all great!"
Pros: "Lots of leg room, even in economy."
Cons: "Entertainment choices were a bit sparse."
Cons: "No flight"
Pros: "The food was okay"
Cons: "The gate was Jane without announcement"
Cons: "Why do I have to get a new boarding pass in London"
Cons: "The plane seemed to be a little bit old, especially entertaining equipment"
Pros: "The boarding, the seats."
Cons: "The food was so-so, and I did not get my choices, perhaps because I was at the back."
Pros: "Everything was as or better than expected. Did not have high expectations, because price was so much less than other airlines. Crew was friendly. Was pleasantly surprised all was good. Was expecting extra fees, (from reading reviews) but had none. Virgin checked bags all the way through, even though tickets were unrelated (and my online checkin said I would have to recheck baggage for second flight)."
Cons: "Seats are small in economy. I was lucky it was not a full flight, so I had two seats. The entertainment system was a. It confusing to manage, but the choices were good. Food was ok; but not worse than would expect."
Cons: "Older media entertainment screen with hard to use touch interface."
Pros: "Free drinks! Lots of food and good entertainment. Glad to have a free blanket and headphones as well."
Cons: "Economy seating wasn’t that comfortable"
Pros: "I loved how the airline crew were very accommodating. This was an awesome experience. A+++"
Cons: "I have no complaints."
Pros: "The onboard crew were lovely."
Cons: "Stood at check in for over 30 mins with no staff in sight. Boarding was a disaster. Staff was not prepared nor organized and the crowds were unbearable. Upgraded seats were laughable and not worth an extra $60. Food was mediocre. Entertainment would have been good but GE touchscreens are so old, they were difficult to work."
Cons: "Too much food - not enough time to sleep in comfort!"
Pros: "Very polite and helpful staff."
Cons: "We were told over the phone that we could bring our kayaks with us to Africa but the airport staff denied not only our kayaks, but also our paddles which were in a standard ski bag. Their excuse was that both the kayaks and paddle bags were 2 inches too long. .. TWO INCHES!!!!!! We had record of the person we talked to and the time and date, but none of that seemed to matter. It caused A HUGE INCONVENIENCE for us since we are in Zambia for 6 weeks without our gear to paddle one of the most challenging rivers in the world... the Zambezi. Now we are constantly trying to acquire the proper equipment with very little success. We run a nonprofit called the Montana Kayak Academy which provides free whitewater instruction to youth between 8 &18 yrs old and we will be sure to tell everyone we know to NOT TRAVEL WITH EITHER VIRGIN ATLANTIC OR BRITISH AIRWAYS.... EVER!!! VERY DISAPPOINTED! !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"
Pros: "Leg room in economy was good. Staff very professional and made a long flight bearable."
Cons: "At check in the name on my reservation read Ron, not Ronald which is on my passport. The second agent I was referred to was unpleasant and charging $100. Had same problem out of Seoul but there was no charge for the ticket change. My interaction with the second agent left a very bad taste in my mouth."
Pros: "Food, crew, entertainment great"
Cons: "Seat were very uncomfortable.. hard, not enough leg room and there was no way to sleep comfortably with the head rest that is set up so you can rest your head on it,but its awkward and hard an in the way..."
Pros: "The Business - was The Business! Loved it."
Cons: "the child got the same food as us due i did not make clear i need a child food, now i am asking : is not clear that in that seat is a child of 4 years old ?"
Pros: "I wish I knew the name of the crew on this flight so that credit is given where it's due. A female steward was incredibly kind to me. She allowed me space to cry in the back of the aircraft, and also gave me her personal tissues. Her care is the only reason I'd give this flight an 'okay.'"
Cons: "Unlike the incredibly kind woman, another woman on the crew was incredibly rude to me and to other passengers on the plane. She was very obviously annoyed with nearly everything on that flight. The restrooms were beyond disgusting. I have never flown on a flight with a restroom that awful; it smelled horrible and was filthy. It was reminiscent of a portable outhouse, no exaggeration. The pillow on my seat had makeup on it."
Pros: "Plenty of snacks and great service, with comfy seats"
Cons: "My luggage did not make it to destination :("
Cons: "Seats need more padding"
Pros: "Nothing because I was given a middle seat"
Cons: "6'4 and I get a middle seat.."
Pros: "Great direct flight. Quit on the plane. Plenty of time to rest and sleep"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "airline staff was helpful, friendly and accommodating from ticket check in to flight staff."
Pros: "nothing"
Cons: "this is not an airline, this is a bus company"
Pros: "The crew was great with updates. Checking in was a bit confusing though as not all the crew knew what was up. It was a very crowded day so it was bound to be a bit rough. Of my last four flights to London Virgin Atlantic was the best!"
Cons: "Heathrow was a bit confusing and it took a moment to get my bearings. The crew was a bit disorganized but that seemed to get solved quickly."

The food was not testy and unhealthy if you serve Potatoes it's create gas in body and unpleasant,

They lost my luggage

Left our luggage in Frankfurt on purpose. Did not send email as they claimed. Misleading notice of free luggage checkin.

They cancelled my flight day before without any support to rebook.

More leg room for an international flight, it was very uncomfortable sitting in economy with minimal leg room, I was worried i would develop a blood clot.

Pros: "Place was clean; crew was nice and attentive"
Cons: "Seats are small and uncomfortable for long haul flights"
Pros: "They hand out wine like it's candy"
Cons: "Also, they hand out wine like it's candy - be careful!"
Pros: "La atención de la tripulación es la mejor que he visto. El servicio de alimentación es muy bueno."
Pros: "Wine. Good movies"
Cons: "USB charging didn’t work. WiFi wouldn’t connect. Food was horrible. Cheap pasta. Flight attendants are just German, no warmth or connection, they just gave orders like we were employees. Will try to avoid Lufthansa in future if possible"
Pros: "Seats were too cramped up, legroom was a problem. A device was under the seat was cramping the leg room. The entertainment selection was very very poor for a long flight."
Cons: "Better entertainment selection."
Pros: "Smooth and easy flight"
Cons: "Food and drinks served late"
Cons: "Food was horrible on Lufthansa. Boarding was also horrible. They don't board by zones and it was very haphazard and unorganized."
Cons: "No complaints. Good vegan food."
Pros: "Very explanatory clear and responsive. There was a short delay they kept us informed clearly and responsibly. Excellent flight and superb performance. Very polite and helpful."
Pros: "Overall once on the flight the service and comfort were very good. Attendants were very nice and helpful. Always had a smile and made the flight enjoyable. We specifically picked this Airline for its service and reliablity"
Cons: "The checkin and "Automated" Baggage Check were a disaster. It took us a full 2 hours to check our bags and get to thru security and our gate. We were practically running to get to the end. The layout of the airport is very tough to get from point A to point B. Walking a long distance with multiple security checks. On top of that, the plane was almost an hour late boarding and then taking off. It was a mass of people with no way to cue for an orderly boarding process. No instructions or info given to allow us to go get something to eat or drink prior to boarding."
Cons: "I was put on stand by because the flight was overbooked even though my reservations were confirmed by you, why?"
Pros: "There were blankets and pillows for every seat. There are USB ports at each seat as well as headphone plugs."
Cons: "The TV sound didn’t work too well. Excellent staff Ms Maria Was very gracious."
Cons: "Very bad food"
Pros: "The service was outstanding!"
Cons: "Someone stole my phone charger :("
Pros: "Boarding process and email updates."
Cons: "Business class on European domestic flights is nothing more than coach seats with no one seated in the middle. Better than coach, but not by much and not worth the extra money."
Pros: "I like the Aircaraft - A350-900 and service"
Pros: "Efficient boarding"
Cons: "Flight map tracking did not work"
Pros: "Luthansa flight was very good. On time, and best quality"
Pros: "Friendliness of the crew, they not only served us well, they were having fun doing it. Job well done. Thank you all."
Cons: "Nothing really, everything was great."
Pros: "We enjoyed everything about our Lufthansa experience. Crew and flight attendants were very kind and attentive throughout the entire flight. On both of our international flights my wife and I had 4 seats to ourselves, which allowed us to stretch out much more comfortably. Flights were on time, landings smooth, online entertainment worked great, food was delicious, and the service outstanding."
Cons: "nothing"
Pros: "Exellent and smooth flight, thank you."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Water was spilled on me by flight attendant. Luggage was left in Frankfort. Did not have clothes or medications, or daily necessities. Must wait 1 1/2 days to get luggage"
Pros: "Breakfast should not be served 4 AM Cairo time, 40 minutes after boarding"
Pros: "Crew was super nice, service great and plane comfort appropriate for the duration of the flight."
Cons: "Overhead compartments very narrow and could not fit small carryons."
Cons: "Headphones not working properly in the whole economy class! Only one of the headphones was working... WOW, Lufthansa, never seen anything like this! Second serving of food was the worst I have been served on an airplane - a stale pizza. On a number of occasions I asked the hostess for a piece of bread and a glass of wine - she promised to be back and never was."
Cons: "waited before takeoff, didn't go to right terminal, waited on tarmac for 40 minutes for steps, bags still no on carousel , lost bags....almost missed connection. overall poor experience."
Pros: "In time on arrival with a good chance to catch the next flight"
Cons: "Did not get the food of my choice. The system was blocked for early check in."
Pros: "Staff is especially nice and efficient. Food and drinks very good"
Pros: "The food and service was good. Check-in was smooth."
Cons: "The seats were too cramped. The headphone jack only output sound to one ear (tested with two headphones, so the problem is in the seat entertainment unit, not in the headphone)"
Pros: "The staff were really nice and professional"
Cons: "The seats we were in though lots of leg space the armrest were not reclining and after eight hours it got quite uncomfortable. Also my headphone jack was damaged but the staff made it right."
Pros: "Service"
Cons: "The on board entertainment sucks you need to upgrade"
Cons: "This was a very tight confection. When selling international connections the layover needs to allow enough time to exit the plane, cross a huge airport and go through passport control. Boarding starts early and this connection was barely enough time."
Cons: "The cabin got a little hot during the night and made it hard to be comfortable. Also, the seats lean pretty far back so I had little room in front of me when the person sitting in front of me leaned their seat all the way back."
Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Not a thing"
Pros: "Boarding was okay, we still had the rush towards the beginning and the concern is always finding overhead space"
Cons: "Apparently if you're not awake when they ask you your choice, and it comes time to pass out food and you're awake... You don't get any. Really horrible. Food being handed out, you're hungry and not even an offer. They simply skip you."
Cons: "It was delayed by 9.5 hours!!!!!"
Pros: "Again the friendly crew."
Cons: "The snack at dinner. A simple sandwich would be better instead of the heated pizza and large sandwich they did give."
Cons: "The airplane was extremely cold and the flight staff was rude"
Pros: "Munich airport is convenient and boarding went smoothly"
Cons: "This was an SAA plane, not Lufthansa. I have only had excellent service on Lufthansa. This flight again did not have a functioning entertainment system. I asked for this to be addressed and the SAA crew ignored the request and in the morning looked surprised to find out that several of the TV monitors had not worked at anytime on the flight. Not impressed."
Pros: "Very nice crew"
Cons: "Boarding and take off was late, probably the fault of destination airport"
Pros: "I used to fly lufthansa for my europe travel for work about 15 years ago a lot and thought in recent years it may not have been as good but these flights made me appreciate Lufthansa anew. Crew extremely helpful and polite, always followed up to any requests. Instead of barking at us like United or American crew, they went out of their way to help my daughter get a makeshift icepack for some very painful bumps she got during our vacation. Crew also kept the bathrooms clean from time to time, which was a welcome relief for such a long flight. Desk staff/service desk also was helpful in directing us during the 5 hr layover to things at the airport itself that we could do. They also helped reprint the boarding pass and write down the baggage tags when security made me lose those by separating my wallet and boarding passes into mutliple bins."
Cons: "Phone service. When I tried to book my seats and meals, the lady kept getting things wrong, and ended up not getting me the seats I had specifically ended up asking for. So, when I arrived at the airport and printed my boarding cards, those were seats I did NOT want and all the service desks insisted that's what I asked for. No low carb meal option was surprising. Meal service sometimes felt like too close to each other else too far apart from snacks - didn't feel like we had enough time to digest and get some sleep, while at other times we were seeking out snacks.Overall good quality of food however."
Pros: "Really liked that glasses water, soda and juice were readily available near the staircase to the bathrooms. The seats were spacious and comfortably reclined. The staff went out of there way to make sure we were comfortable. I appreciated them refilling my cup right after being served a drink because I was thirsty and had immediately drank the first cup. The movie selection was pretty good but could have had more up to date movies. I liked the touch screens."
Pros: "The direction"
Cons: "One flight attendant was rude to me"
