The actual flight was ok. But was a mess before departing AMS. My previous flight was late, so missed my connection in AMS. Then I spent over two hours getting things settled to get another flight. I was unable to complete my request online, and no one at KLM in AMS wanted to help. They kept giving me the run-around until I finally convinced them K was stuck without their personal help. It added a lot of stress (and about 5 more hours of transit time) to my overall journey.
Super Crew / Great Entertainment System
Overbooked flight of airBaltic, tow hours of delay
The flight was delayed at least one hour. The bathroom inside the aircraft was really dirty. On the other hand the cabin crew was really nice.
Es gab einen Snack und gute Getränke. Besser Service als bei manch anderer Airline
Baggage drop-off könnte schneller sein, die FlugbegleiterInnen könnten freundlicher sein

Positiv: "Cabin facilities"
Negativ: "They didn’t bring one of my bags"
Positiv: "The crew was great but the seat wasn't as comfortable and didn't have much leg room."
Negativ: "It was a connection flight from Manchester via AMS to HAJ. Transfer time in Amsterdam (offered by KLM) just 1 hr - so my baggage hasn't arrived in HAJ, at least one day delay! At airport HAJ I've heard that's usual that baggage can't arrive in one our! So I didn't understand why this flight was offered by KLM!"
Positiv: "was a standard flight, in a standard quality - nothing bad"

Negativ: "Flight was delayed 2 hours due to bad weather. Additional baggage payment to Air Baltic did not show up on the KLM system and we had to pay again. Nowhere to address this with Air Baltic even in Tallin. Handlers seem uninterested and refer us to ‘the website to address the issue.....’"
Positiv: "Short flight and being able to escape from drunk belligerent Passenger on previous flight"
Negativ: "I’ve traveled a lot internationally and this was the WORST flight I’ve ever had to endure. I felt like I was being tortured and didn’t sleep at all and so slept when getting into Amsterdam rather than being able to explore the city. I was out $200 for the Airbnb (could’ve stayed in the airport cheaper) and $200 for a dinner cruise I slept through. NEVER AGAIN"
Negativ: "Nothing special"
Positiv: "punctuality of boarding and flight time"
Negativ: "attitude of crew in business class: no sense of true hospitality"
Positiv: "Das Flugpersonal war freundlich, sehr aufmerksam und fürsorglich. Es gab genug zu trinken und gute Auswahl. Über eine Kleinigkeit zu essen freute ich mich auch sehr. Es war ein entspannter, angenehmer Flug. Danke vielmals."
Negativ: "Dass der Flug sich verspätet hat, hat mich persönlich nicht sehr gestört. Wenn aber jemand danach weiter fahren muss, oder einen Termin deshalb verpasst, könnte etwas nervig sein."
Positiv: "Board-Crew war sehr nett und das Essen + Getränke war natürlich auch sehr gut."
Negativ: "Leider muss man sagen dass das Boarding zu lange gedauert hat und manche Probleme mit dem Anschlussflug hatten. Noch dazu kummt dass mindestens 5 oder 6 Personen ihren Koffer nicht mehr bekommen haben unteranderem auch eine Freundin von mir was natürlich sehr ärgerlich ist."
Negativ: "KLM staff in the Prague airport were some of the rudest humans I have ever met. So incredibly uncaring and outright mean."
Negativ: "The movie selection did not seem extremely varied."
Positiv: "Fairly nice flight. 7 hours AMS to JFK. They had ice cream cones for us mid flight and an after dinner cognac if you wished."
Negativ: "Not a big fan of paying for a few extra inches of leg room in a better seat after paying for a ticket."
Luggage handling was disgraceful and lots of luggage was left behind after being delayed for more than an hour.
Habe flug verpasst, Anschluss von Brest war zu knapp (30') mit 10' Verspätung v Start
No online check-in, so not ideal for business travellers having to queue to check-in at Zurich airport
Negativ: "They forced me to ceck my trolley because i had a suit with me!!! And the airplane wasn’t even full. Even worst they allowed some pieces of “hand luggage” that were double the maximum allowed size"
Positiv: "The rest area"
Negativ: "The airport was cold and it should be warmer"
Positiv: "Nette Crew, Privatsphäre und leckeres Catering"
Negativ: "Nur süße Snacks, nichts salziges"
Positiv: "The crew was great"
Negativ: "1-2 +cms leg space"
Positiv: "Freundlichkeit des Personals"
Negativ: "I was almost forced to stow my luggage in the hold despite me telling the check-in people tjat I had my meds and cpap in the carryon. I spoke to multiple people. Not sensitive."
Positiv: "I've never been on a flight with such narrow seat and thin cushion. There was no entertainment offered for the almost 4 hour flight. There was no means of charging any electronic gears. The airplane seems to be 30 years behind time. Crew was unfriendly and smiling faces are not part of the uniform."
Negativ: "Very narrow seats and thim cushion. No entertainment offered an do means of recharging electronic devices."
Positiv: "The seats were spacious and the crew was wonderful. The crew actually made the long flight more tolerable. Will seek out Delta/Air France for further international flights."
Negativ: "Die Bestuhlung der Business Class in der Boeing 777 ist unbequem. Es gibt wenig Ablagemöglichkeiten. Die Anordnung ist 2-3-2, und die Fensterplätze und der mittlere Sitz hat keinen Zugang zum Gang. Man muss bei diesen Sitzen die Nachbarn belästigen. Finde ich gelinde gesagt suboptimal."
Positiv: "Not much, seats are super uncomfortable"
Negativ: "Better code sharing with KLM"
Positiv: "Seats are comfortable on Business Class. Service is good"
Negativ: "Constant delays specially from CDG! Poor cabin service specially on this flight."
Negativ: "This was one of the worst flights I’ve been on. Both planes were downright filthy. The flight from Dallas to Barcelona had several broken toilets. Flight from Paris to Barcelona boarded and once everyone was on board, they told us that we would be sitting there for 2 hours before leaving."
Negativ: "I’m not sure that short-hop flights should serve solid food. The quality invariably disappoints. Otherwise, all is good with this flight."
Positiv: "Mit einer Ausnahme war die Crew wenig motiviert"
Positiv: "Crew was nice."
Negativ: "Food could be better, or at least be provided an option to purchase an upgraded meal. Also, insufficient amount of drinking water provided to passengers."
Negativ: "Sehr laut! Eng gestuhlt"
Positiv: "Red wine was excellent"
Negativ: "Bright lights on throughout flight, would have been nice to dim lights for late night flight so passengers could rest"

Negativ: "4 Stunden Wartezeit am Flughafen leider zu lang:("
Positiv: "Air France has the best crews! They really go the extra mile."
Negativ: "My skis were lost on the way to Riga and had to be delivered 2 days later to Vilnius. That said, the situation was handled very professionally."
Positiv: "Intranet wifi meant I could watch entertainment on my iPad"
Negativ: "Seats are very uncomfortable"
Negativ: "I have never been in a situation were a flight has been delayed due to the co-pilot suffering a knee injury prior to take off. A request for a doctor on board after an hour or so and then having to leave the plane and then re-board after about 40 minutes was quite bizarre."
Negativ: "Flug kommt Mitten in der Nacht in Paris an. Da die Verbindung zum Anschlussgate noch geschlossen war, mussten wir formal nach Frankreich einreisen um zum Gate nach München zu kommen. Dort darf man sich im ungeheiztem Gate noch mindestens 2 Stunden die Zeit vetreiben."
Positiv: "Die Crew war nett"
Negativ: "Sitze waren sehr verschlissen, bzw. funtionierten teilweise nicht. Bordunterhaltung war nur auf einem Monitor möglich der andere Monitor funktionierte nicht."
Positiv: "Nette Besatzung, Kleiigjeit zum Essen und Trinken"
Negativ: "Sehr wenig Platz, wenig zum Essen"
Positiv: "Really liked the new touch screens (with very good responsiveness). Also liked the food selection (the champagne was nice, so was the menu we were given)."
Negativ: "Being in the middle of the 4 seats with guys on both sides. They tend to restrict the space by using the arm rests."
Positiv: "Quick and efficient not lying more to say or critique."
Negativ: "Coffee and a bread roll as a snack??"
Negativ: "Long delays to go through security screening and then further delays as the plane was still being fueled at departure time."
Positiv: "Flug war kurz, dennoch gab es Getränke. Das war super!"
Positiv: "Flugpersonal war außerordentlich aufmerksam und freundlich. Der Flug mehr als entspannt. Auch das Essen war super!"
Positiv: "Alle ok, Personal freundlich zuvorkommend"
Negativ: "kleiner Snack mit Kaffee, alles gut für den kurzen Flug."
Positiv: "Crew and boarding were very good. Very helpful to foreigners. Thank you Coffe was really good didn’t eat food. Sleeping."
Negativ: "Business class seats weren’t comfortable and too narrow no entertainment."
Positiv: "Quiet! No noise-canceling earphones needed. Delicious food."
Positiv: "Boarding this large plane went relatively quickly and orderly."
Negativ: "Seats were tight and got a bit uncomfortable. This was a long flight. Could use a much better cushion."
Positiv: "We flew with our special needs child without requesting any particular accommodations except for gluten free meals. The gate staff and flight crew identified him and allowed us special bordering that facilitated the process. That act of kindness is a rare experience on our part. Thank you Air France staff!"
Positiv: "Direct flight from Indy to CDG is great. The plane was not so full, so I hope business improves so we can keep it going. Very smooth flight, with good and friendly crew."
Positiv: "Late leaving - no reason or apology. A bumpy flight all flight. Food almoat inedible. Seat gave bum axhe after 45 minutes. Staff friendly, but they dropped my meal"
Negativ: "Nothing to like"
Positiv: "nice drink selection on board flights"
Negativ: "My pregnant wife was downgraded from business to economy 20 minutes before departure because the airline made a mistake with the reservation for our puppy traveling in the cabin with us. If this were not enough, the airline also lost one of our bags so this week we have to file for compensation for both begin downgraded and for the contents of our 30 kilo bag which never made it to Ho Chi Minh. Air France was a complete and total disaster and I would strongly recommend all friends and colleagues to find alternative airlines for travel"
Positiv: "I like fly attendant who served us meal"
Negativ: "I didn’t like that space between each seat is small"
Positiv: "It was quick, very good space in premium economy. Good and friendly service. The food was better than expected"
Negativ: "The crew did not announce the score of soccer cup semi final between Belgium and France"
Negativ: "CDG is a monster. The distances are long . The signage is poor and when I asked for directions the diirections I got were wrong."
Positiv: "Great hospitality. Champagne as apero, cognac as digestif. Excellent on board entertainment. Comfy pillow and blanket."
Positiv: "Flight landed 15min ahead of schedule. Good seating (29C in 777-300 ER), Good choice on entertainment program, also in german language."
Negativ: "Ordered meal not available (ok, AF staff was on strike)"
No water or light snacks, unless you pay a lot of money for it. Zero leg space
Horrible airline and airport
Positiv: "Great crew, gently made sure we had our masks on."
Negativ: "Boarded some passengers very early and had to wait on bus and plane for other passengers who boarded at normal time."
Negativ: "Nether the Dutch government or the Greek government is allowing Americans into their countries, yet Transavia refuses to refund my ticket money. That is the height of abysmal, disrespectful, if not criminal service. Effectively, they stole my money."
Positiv: "Nothing I like!"
Negativ: "No free food or at least water. You need to pay for everything. High air fare, No seat LCD TV, No wifi. Worst airline ever"
Positiv: "Crew gut"
Negativ: "Boarding dauert relativ lange"
Negativ: "Crew (as always with Transavia) is not at its best."
Negativ: "The flight was perfect the only thing that concerned me was that two female passengers were allowed into the cockpit about thirty minutes prior to landing and stayed in their for the duration including landing. Did not know that that was allowed. Other than that it was perfect."
Negativ: "We will never fly Air France, Transavia or Dutch airlines again. Terrible planes for Air France and terrible checking in and connecting flights for transavia and Dutch airlines"
Positiv: "Yes both are good"
Negativ: "Timing Cz I was delay 1 hour and half ! And we already booked a taxi to pick us from the airport and he left n charge us! ! So we had to take another taxi . As for the website! I’m trying to book luggage online I can’t get through at all! I’ve been trying since yesterday ... thnx"
Negativ: "Easyjet seats are way better. Limiting the hand (cabin) luggage to 10kg and actually weighting it is ridiculous."
Negativ: "Delay in boarding, extremely slow."
Positiv: "I’m so thrilled at Transavia’s expansion to new routes like Beirut. This is the second time I traveled to Beirut since November and I noted a marked improvement in the quality of service on the ground."
Negativ: "It’s still a discount airline trying to squeeze money anyway they can."
Positiv: "Das boarding war gut, pünklich und unkompliziert die Mitarbeiter haben angespannt und gestresst gewirkt der Sitzplatz ist eine Katastrophe, überhaupt keine Beinfreiheit"
Positiv: "Nettes Flug Personal. Superpünktlich gestartet und gelandet."
Negativ: "Zustand der Boing 737 - 800 war gut. Beinfreiheit war O.K"
Positiv: "Professional and efficient, everything one could have hoped for."
Positiv: "Nothing...it was ridiculous"
Negativ: "No kiosks? No online check in? Seats were vinyl and terrible, and the plane was hot. It took us over 2 hours to check in"
Positiv: "Crew was professional. We did not have food on the flight nor used the entertainment."
Negativ: "There was a huge lad beside us and the seats & legroom are less than we would like. The huge lad made it uncomfortable Bob"
Positiv: "Das Flugpersonal war sehr freundlich und zuvorkommend. Einziger Nachteil bei diesem Flug war die 20 minütige Verspätung des Starts. Ansonsten kann ich Transavia auf jeden Fall weiterempfehlen. Sehr gutes Preis-Leistungsverhältnis. Ist eine KLM Tochter."
Positiv: "Seats were more comfortable than I expected."
Negativ: "It would have been better to have 2 carry ons. Even a bag of snacks was considered a carry on and i had to put it and my purse in my backpack."
Negativ: "Wpuld be helpful to be able to put the online boarding pass in iPhone “wallet."
Positiv: "There was an airplane"
Negativ: "No leg room, chaotic boarding, uncomfortable seats, delayed flight"
Negativ: "Physically stood in the sun on the tarmac for half an hour in Marrakech waiting to board the plane. Seating is so compact it’s physically impossible for me to fit, I’m 6’3” then it took an hour forty five minutes to get our checked luggage in Lisbon. Everyone was furious. No explanation from the airport or airline. We missed our hotel shuttle, missed our hotel checkin. Just terrible."
Positiv: "Inexpensive fares are worth something. Where else can you fly half way across the EU for 150 euro? The crew was cheerful and helpful. Website, phone app and email reminders are great."
Negativ: "You do pay alacarte for everything. And service suffers in the name of low price. Checked bags, drinks and food. Be prepared to walk or stand everywhere, baggage check-in at Orly is in the basement and the last areas 132. The gates are the last gates in the south terminal. And when you get to the gate boarding is done enmasss so you wait in line. But the fares are cheap."
Positiv: "pleasent crew. good pilot."
Positiv: "We had arrived to destination in somehow safe condition"
Negativ: "- Will charge you for anything... extra kg (or less) - charge! Water for 5 hours flight? - Charge! - They ruined my suitcase and won't pay for it - Drunk people making mess on the plane and throw-up on your cloths? Your problem. To conclude, flight with many low cost, but never had that bad experience before."
Positiv: "Thank you for being kind and helping us board efficiently. Nice, easy flight."
Positiv: "No problems, right on time, modern aircraft."
Negativ: "Small seats and little space."
Negativ: "No free water , snack"
Positiv: "Personal professionell, freundlich."
Negativ: "Da wir schon online eingecheckt hatten, dachten wir baggage drop-off ist ruck zuck erledigt, denkste! Nur ein Schalter besetzt - dauerte ewig! Flug war außerdem verspätet. Sitzabstände sehr gering."
Negativ: "Late arrival, no leg room, high price for flight change - 30%"
Negativ: "Gepäckabgabe war eine einzige Katastrophe, alles ging durcheinander. Und die die am ehesten am Flughafen waren, waren die letzten beim Boarding. Soviel Inkompetenz habe ich lange nicht mehr gesehen. Nie wieder! Dann müsste man sich Kaffee an Bord noch selber bezahlen. Bordsprache mit Englisch und viel zu leise."
Positiv: "The Flight was good"
Negativ: "The Airport in Crete was the worst I have ever seen for cleanliness, long lines to drop bags."
Positiv: "Unexplained lateness and slow boarding process but otherwise good flight"
Negativ: "Verspätung, viel zu kalt an Bord"
Negativ: "es war nicht möglich den Vorabend Checkin durchzuführen. es wurde automatisch eine Buchung bestätigt, wo nur Handgepäck frei war. Es gab keine Möglichkeit zu korrigieren, dass auch ein "normales" Gepäckstück auf der Reise dabei ist"
Positiv: "After experiencing a computer glitch with our check-in, Transavia moved heaven and earth to get us on our flight. We appreciated the staff so so much!"
Positiv: "Seats were comfortable, crew were very kind"
Negativ: "Boarding took too much time"
Positiv: "Der Flug war super pünktlich und schneller als angegeben."
Negativ: "dazu kann ich leider nichts sagen, habe keinerlei Leistungen in Anspruch genommen bei so einem kurzen Flug!!!!"
Negativ: "When we booked there was no information about fees for checked bags. I tried to Ck in online and pay for our bags then but the payment didn't go through. At the airport they charged me even more than it would have been online. The bags cost more than our seats. We should have been told!!"
Positiv: "Flug war pünktlich"
Negativ: "Bodenpersonal unfassbar inkompetent"
Positiv: "Boarding + Flug absolut pünktlich und ohne Zeitverzug"
Negativ: "Absolutes Chaos an den Drop-Off Schaltern, null Organisation, wildes Durcheinander - und das frühmorgens um 5h00"
Positiv: "Stewardessen etc waren ganz nett und stehts bemüht"
Negativ: "Nicht nur der Flug nach Wien sondern fast ALLE Flüge von Transavia hatten Verspätung. Durch die vielen verschiedenen Durchsagen haben wir nicht mitbekommen wie das Bording begonnen hat und sind dann eig. zu spät gekommen aber noch rechtzeitig zum Flug..."
Positiv: "Airline ist super organisiert, Boarding ist stehts überpünktlich. Es lohnt sich sehr früh am Gate zu sein, das das einstige oft 20 früher beginnt als angekündigt."
Negativ: "Beinfreiheit ist quasi nicht vorhanden. Sehr enge und wenig komfortabele Sitze. Nur für Flüge unter einer Stunde gerade noch so ok."
Positiv: "Well organized at terminal. Note bag check not available until about 2 hr before flight. Check your ticket. Baggage was out fast. Flight on time."
Negativ: "Single line for bag check, by flight, so took a while. Still plenty of time. Charge for each checked bag."
Positiv: "Gate attendant checked us in with a smile! Super courteous, friendly and professional! Plane was super clean and tidy too!"
Negativ: "Wish a small cup of water would have been available to take some headache meds...3 euros for water, now I really have a headache!!!"
Positiv: "Flight was quick"
Negativ: "Flight was delayed and we stayed on the plane waiting for almost 2 hours."
