The crew on both flights were courteous and professional. The flights were smooth and on time. Great experience overall. There could have been at least a drink on the flight's JFK - JAX leg.
Pros: "Amazing crew, excellent drinks and decent food. Very comfortable seat"
Cons: "Everything was great"
Pros: "Speedy boarding and good locker space"
Cons: "Lack of room in seat especially with seat in front reclined."
Pros: "The food was good. The lane was comfortable"
Cons: "The flight was nearly full, and the 767 is a large aircraft. I think it would be preferable if Virgin Atlantic would board the plane by zones, similar to other airlines."
Pros: "Karl was amazing! So helpful and sweet!"
Cons: "Having the crew tell the guy behind me to plug in his ear phones to watch the video in his phone, rather than me after 20 minutes of noise."
Cons: "We were bussed to the plane, there were long dark hairs on my pillow, and they are generous with snacks at close intervals, but the food could be much better. The ideas are cute, but the actual food is pretty basic, which is disappointing for Virgin, who I hold in high regard. Or did."
Pros: "The crew was outstanding and the good choices were excellent"
Cons: "The flight was late( not their fault) and there were several technical difficulties with the A/C and entertainment system"
Pros: "The flight was so delayed I missed my connecting flight to jfk."
Cons: "The flight was so delayed I missed my connecting flight to jfk."
Pros: "Virgin Atlantic offers good service at a reasonable price to/from the US to London. Good food service and unbelieveable number of movies and entertainment to choose from."
Cons: "The seating and leg room in economy classic were inadequate. We felt way too confined in our seats and the leg room was a joke. I am only 6' tall and this was unacceptable. We will try to upgrade for the return trip."
Pros: "Great, friendly, professional crew, clean comfortable plane. Loved that full dinner and baggage and wine was included in an economy class overnight from DC to London as well as breakfast. Best flight in a long time, will definitely fly again."
Cons: "the tv screen's touch screen capabilities could use an upgrade, it was a hassle to navigate, not very sensitive to touch."
Cons: "Finnair are hellbent on trying to sell goods and continuously interrupt the movies with their confounded announcements every 15 minutes very annoying. If i wanted to buy something its in their mag and as a regional flight it should include some form of nourishment other than juice or coffee one off, tight fisted and not a descent selection of food either"
Pros: "The crew was helpful and polite, food was good"
Cons: "Would have preferred to watch one comedy movie. The crazy rich Asians was on a lighter side of a movie but I had seen that one already."
Cons: "Missed my connecting flight from Helsinki to Miami because the flight from New Delhi, India was delayed by more than 4 hours."
Pros: "The service, the comfort of the plane. Great communication about turbulence."
Pros: "Was great on the way to Helsinki and extremely poor on the return trip."
Cons: "Seat pitch was horrible! Almost as bad as United and American. Very uncomfortable!"
Pros: "The original flight was canceled, the stroller was taken away when boarded the airplane, and not seen until final destination. With a 1-year-old and 2 and a half year old, this was the worst ever flight. Take us 35 hours total travel time to get home with 2 small kids, it is a nightmare."
Cons: "The flight was cancelled and changed to 2 stops from one. We purchased a 1 stop flight because of the kids. In mid season a week before departure, we were notified about the change and it was impossible to get a same priced ticket so close to departure. We bought insurance but even with that was impossible. Looks like a scam. Very upsetting, messed up the whole thing."
Pros: "Typical service and level of attention you'd expect in business class. Great food and wine selection. The amenity kit has exactly what's needed and not more."
Cons: "Only 1 hour of Wi-fi included - seems strange for business class."
Pros: "Friendly crew, modern and clean plane."
Cons: "After we landed the crew diacovet d that we had parked too far from the gate and needed to move the plane. Several passengers were anxious to deplane to connect to another flight and refused to sit down which caused further delays. The crew could have been more stern about passenger conduct as to make the process more efficient."
Pros: "I'm so happy to be able to travel with my small dog in cabin. I've travelled from Miami to Helsinki and back with a dog at least 30 times in the last 16 years. The service has always been very good. I choose the airline always based on what's best for my dog."
Pros: "Flight was delayed, and I ended up staying in hotel and spending the while next day traveling. It was very unfortunate, I lost 24 hours. But the hotel was nice."
Cons: "The flight from London to Miami was great! The one from Miami to Las Vegas was awful. No seat-back entertainment screens, not power outlets so you could watch on your own device, one bottle of water for a five hour flight, and ride, inattentive cabin crew. I should point out that while I booked through BA, both flights were operated by American Airlines."
Pros: "Crew were impressive bcos they looked fresh after 11 hours. Seating was very comfortable as whole rows were empty so you could stretch, and no waits for the loos. Entertainment monitors were the updated kind, also a plus, I really enjoyed switching from movies and tv to the flight graphics."
Cons: "The tv news on BBC was 1 week old."
Pros: "Crew were nice"
Cons: "No WiFi, no outlets and tiny screens. This plane had to be 20 years old. Embarrassing that BA hasn’t updated this plane with the simplest things. For a daytime flight over the Atlantic, I could get no work done at all."
Cons: "Delayed my flight connection was missed and ba said they put me on another flight but they never did"
Cons: "No power plugs/usb ports. Very small, poor quality screen. Not much bigger than my iPhone."
Pros: "I liked everything. The crew was polite always with a smile. They liked there job and did a great job. If you where a sleep they left you alone. Always had a smile. Super polite and happy."
Cons: "Nothing to not like the crew was Great!!!!!!"
Pros: "Nice new plane, great flight staff, great entertainment"
Cons: "Checking in at the gate took a lot of time and no food or bathrooms available"
Pros: "Great crew with Laura, Luke and the team in Club World."
Cons: "BA lounge in Heathrow Terminal 3 had it's days and needs upgrade."
Pros: "That was my first experience with the Airbus 380. The plane is an excellent ship and the takeoff and landing was surprisingly smooth. Flying is very stable as well. Although it has two decks you are just in one and it looks like any other long distance plane. Seats are a bit narrow but comfortable. Entertainment is individual and plenty of options. Economy cabin is divided in two sections and each section has its own lavatories."
Cons: "The boarding and disembarking operation is never-ending and of course economy class has to wait until business and first -that are considerably large- have completed their getting out. Even with two exits for the two decks it was very slow. On boarding I also noticed that several passengers boarded the wrong deck: nobody but a generic sign was telling them what gate was theirs. With 450 or 500 passengers the chance that something goes wrong increases. In our case a passenger didn't make the connexion and the luggage had to be removed. Food is just fine. Surprisingly the beverage was extremely short of options: just wine or water, no coke or sodas. Same with supper: just coffee, water or juice. The trip was long -9 hours- but no water was offered between meals."
Pros: "Flight was on time. Snacks and beverages available all time."
Cons: "Flight was operated by American Airlines. Aircraft was insanely old, with no personal entertainment system, but only a few overhead monitors for all passengers, which played OLD movies. That is unbelievable and unacceptable in 2018. Seats pitch was pretty small and I even had to fly on a broken seat that would not recline, for a 11 hours flight. The most uncomfortable flight I have ever flew. If that wasn't enough to make the experience the worst possible, flight attendance was rude! I strongly suggest to avoid American Airlines at all cost."
Pros: "Awful food selection, small entertainment selection, none of the crew knew how to properly board the plane and left guests waiting in the aisle for over 45 minutes of standing for no reason and then yelled at the passengers that we were 'late' and that the standing passengers were causing the delay of the aircraft! The staff were VERY, VERY rude. I would do yourself a favor and NEVER fly Iberia!"
Cons: "Everything. They need an entirely new flight crew, new food service, new gate attendants, new baggage check, new ground crew. Just a joke."
Pros: "I could not travel to Miami due to Iberia did not assigned the seat with my children."
Cons: "The lack of education and polite of the Stewart is a minus on that airline"
Cons: "This was in no way a legal connection for an international flight - we had only an hour to get from our flight onto the plane going through customs and everything else - we have Global Entry otherwise there is no way in the world we would have made our flight and ou bags did not make it."
Cons: "We were charged 100 Euros extra as they indicated the 2 pieces laugage was not included. They didn't respect the seats that where assigned in the reservation claiming we jus reserved the sits but didng pay for them."
Cons: "All the luggage did not arrive I hope to get it. Also when"
Pros: "Food and entertainment were okay."
Cons: "Iberia was unable to ticket us all the way through to our final destination when we checked-in at our origin (Faro). We then had to go through an arduous process to get handwritten boarding passes in Madrid. This put us at the end of the line for boarding. Then the gate agent refused to let us board because the boarding passes Iberia customer service wrote and stamped didn’t have ticket # on ithem. The gate agent made it clear that it was all on me to go back to the agent at customer service to get it addressed and make it back in-time. The other passenger was my 80 year old mother who a I had to leave unaccompanied at the gate so i’d have some chance of running across the terminal and making it back in-time, which fortunately I did. The complete lack of interest in helping or even acknowledging that this was their mistake is the reason why I will never fly Iberia again."
Cons: "We never made it to this part of our flight because our Budapest to Madrid flight was canceled due to faulty AC system. We were boarded In Budapest and about two hours later they made as deplane after sitting in the hot plane for two hours. It was around 10 PM and no food was available at the airport, so I could not feed my four-year-old son ."
Pros: "The seat, the screen, the plane. Premium Economy in Iberia is totally worth."
Cons: "The power source wasn't working, Premium Economy pax can't go to the Business class restroom, although is just next to their area and have to cross half of the plane for the 1st Economy class restroom."
Pros: "Overhead storage was generous. Being able to check flight progress while in the air."
Cons: "They charged us for two aisle seats, and then reassigned one of us to a middle seat with no notice. With advance notice, they were unable to provide a meal that would not contain bell peppers, to which I am allergic. On the plane, both meal options contained bell peppers. Surprisingly, the ingredient lists were not available to flight attendants or passengers, and we were only aware of their presence because of seeing them, or having my allergic reaction (which I did) after avoiding the visible ones. The passenger in front of me put his seat in full recline for the entire 10 hour flight, including about 30 minutes when the seat was unoccupied. This put his seat about six inches in front of my chin and made it impossible for me to view the entertainment screen. It also made it difficult to get into and out of my seat. Several of the toilets had clear fluid covering the floor. I did not want to know is this was water or something else. Although our connecting flight in Miami went from gate E21 to gate E30, it took two hours (and 3,000 steps per FitBit) to get there because of being required to claim our luggage, leave security, recheck the bags, and then re-enter security. Our tickets did not provide for TSA-PRE despite having provided our known traveler number in advance. Many notices and directions were only available in Spanish. As they are based in a Spanish speaking country, this is perfectly reasonable, but their services are marketed to English speaking countries and it was a problem for me as a predominantly English-only speaker."
Pros: "Never happened. Missed because of security. Have no idea where our luggage is. Everybody gives us a different story"
The flight was comfortable, smooth, hardly any bumps even though we encountered some jetstream. The onboard entertainment could be jazzed up a little, the TV shows were old ans not much variety. The movies we ok. The staff was pleasant. The Orlando ground crew was excellent, they were pleasantand friendly. My kids and I were seated separately but the Orlando crew was able to reassign us together. The ground crew at Gatwick, UK need some work on attitude, they were not so sociable. All in all wonderful flight to and from England. I will be definitely traveling with Norse again. Ps...Norse need to work on an app for both Android and iOS.
Crew at airport who completed boarding were incredibly and blatantly rude and unhelpful. 0/10 customer service. I was going to upgrade my seat to first class and upon asking, I was met with an awful attitude so I changed my mind.
Boarding was a disaster. 2 hours in line to get boarding passes and we had no luggage to check in. Coffee was $4 so is water. 11 and a half hour’s flight and food was not included. You could purchase the food but it was complete garbage, This is worse than spirit airline. Never again
No food included on a long haul flight, staff blamed Kayak. They were rude, when asking for attention they never came. Don’t think I will use the airline again, also Kayak as there were a couple of screw ups on the multi city journey.
I had no idea that I had to pay for a coffee and water
First time in a Boeing 787 dreamliner, and first time I haven't needed lower back support to survive the flight. Flight was delayed a bit, but otherwise everything went very smoothly with no issues. I do dislike the fee to select or change seats, but that seems to be the norm now.
