Pros: "Very friendly staff, prompt service, smooth boarding, clean cabin."
Cons: "I usually love the food on Emirates but this was really not good. Barely edible!"

Pros: "Good meals, comfortable seat with fantastic entertainment options."

Cons: "Me"

Cons: "Everything was great It’ was a long flight and the seats are not comfortable I wish the first class tickets were more reasonably priced for a normal person that wants to be more comfortable in a long flight. But everything else was perfect!! Thank you."

Pros: "Crew were great, entertainment was great, all in all a really comfortable flight despite not getting an aisle seat which would have made it even better"
Cons: "I discovered when I hit Dubai that despite having an eight an a half hour layover that I didn't qualify for the free hotel I thought I did qualify for as someone with an eight hour plus flight so that was a little disappointing have had it before so assumed it was on all flights but that ended up being a negative surprise..."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Service, seats in bad shape, screen not working, ......"

Cons: "On our departure flight the entertainment system stopped working completely at my daughter's seat mid-flight (the whole screen went black, remote control and all). The flight attendant tried and was unable to fix it, so they moved a passenger in the row my husband and I were in and put my daughter there. None of the entertainment systems worked well, the touch screens were barely responsive - they definitely need updating. On our return flight the power in the whole row that my three pre-teen kids were in stopped working. Again the flight attendant tried unsuccessfully to fix. My husband and I switched rows with them so they could continue to watch movies. Each time we called the flight attendant she came, said she would try to reset the systems and that we should wait a few minutes. We waited and ultimately had to go find her again to be told the same thing again. After this happened three times she sent the manager over who said she could not fix it since that would mean that the whole area would have to be reset and they didn't want to disturb anyone else. The only solution they offered was to give my husband and I open seats (not together and not near our kids) around the cabin. We did not want to split up, so my husband and I spent the rest of the hours of the flight in the dark (lights didn't work either as they are connected to the system) reading with the light from our cell phones. None of the people who came to assist us really seemed to care at all about our comfort or situation."

Cons: "The seats on the 777-300ER were tiny compared to the seats on the A380 from JFK to dubai. My wife and I are both small people and we were cramped. This is very unfair to us and even so to larger people on such a long leg The entertainment screens were also very poor. Small, low res"

Pros: "We went almost 4hours without water served"

Cons: "Baggage claim in Newark horrible and slow. Not the brightest people here."

Pros: "The crew was up during the whole trip, offering refreshments and taking a really good care of all passengers"
Cons: "n/a"

Pros: "Very responsive and friendly crew"
Cons: "Would like to see more vegetarian options"

Pros: "Emirates deserves its reputation for providing an overall enjoyable experience"
Cons: "New Jersey airport is seriously lacking in functioning systems"

Pros: "Flying on economy Emirates was a fantastic experience. It should be the industry standard."
Cons: "The entire experience"

Pros: "Emirates is a true Customer Service oriented airline. It is a relief to know that in this age of carriers that charge you a lot and treat you like you are paying a bus ticket there are airlines that still know the key to success. Boarding was fine and not dependent on local personalities. You can tell the company cares about training. The food and entertainment is excellent. Seats are still a little smaller but they try and make up with it with other perks. Flight crew was polite, smiling, and accommodating no matter the time. Pillows, blankets, snacks, etc. all given without having to ask or be charged. We were also given these little self care packs with toothbrush & paste, eye pillow, socks, and earplugs! Overall it made a long flight over night very comfortable."
Cons: "Nothing!"

Pros: "Great service! While first time, I had a great experience."

Pros: "Everything was amazing, from check in to deplaning. I’m going to sign up on their frequent flyer program."

Cons: "Boarding was chaotic"

Cons: "Newark airport is depressing. Lighting in boarding area is simply awful. Also, cab fare to and from NYC is much too high. Midnight departure time of the flight to Greece is inconvenient. It is just too late. Getting through customs at Newark is a chore. There are not enough computers for passengers to report what they have to report. Also, many passengers I saw did not know how to use a computer."

Pros: "Flying with Emirates is always great."

Pros: "quality and friendship"
Cons: "Electronic Entert can be more accessible More access to news"

Pros: "I loved the crew. Very helpful. Katarina was very helpfull"
Cons: "I sat next to the bathrooms"

Pros: "Once on the flight everything was great! Flying stars"
Cons: "Online check-in was a horrible experience and a waste of time. I was never able to check in before getting to the airport. Website kept kicking back errors when trying to check in."

Pros: "Tons of movies!"
Cons: "No complaints."

Pros: "I loved all the free services. Wifi, 2 large and tasty meals with free drinks (wine, beer) free exit row seating, seats reclined more than other airlines and free baggage. The staff was awesome and very helpful."

Cons: "seats should be roomier for such a long flight"

Pros: "I never felt like my trip dragged on. I was dreading the flight and found it to be comfortable and easy."
Cons: "It was a full flight and didn't feel crammed!"

Cons: "Same movies"

Pros: "everything was very nice!"

Pros: "Typical Emirates excellence"

Cons: "Space very cramped."

Cons: "The ac wasn't working properly just hot air being blown"

Pros: "Everything very, very good!!!"

Pros: "Flying with Swiss Air instead"
Cons: "Our connecting flight coming in from Crete was delayed and we arrived in Athens too late to make our flight home. The Emirates service desk offered no help in getting us on the next flight home. They were booked full the following day with the exception of business class seats and were going to charge us an additional $4000 which included $600 each for being a no show. They refused to waive any fees so it was drastically cheaper to fly home with another airline. I am most disappointed in their lack of effort to assist us in getting home and they really showed no concern. I will never fly this airline again."

Pros: "The service of the airline. The food was good."
Cons: "The seats were very small and tight. Most other long haul flights the seats are much more comfortable."

Pros: "The fligh went smooth"
Cons: "The food"

Pros: "I love the value for the money and the friendliness of the staff--will definitely fly this airline again!"
Cons: "They ran out of a meal option, which meant that 1/4 of the plan didn't eat because they didn't like or couldn't have the other option."

Pros: "Lots of movies to watch -- when the system was actually working."
Cons: "The food was THE worst I've ever had on any flight ever. And they served the same food for both meals... chicken, fish, or pasta for dinner AND breakfast... the latter which was at 3am of the time zone I was coming from. Both my kids (5 and 7) REFUSED to eat any of the food except the brew& butter, despite starving. My row and row behind me lost power during the flight so we had NO entertainment, and could no longer charge our devices for the rest of the 11-hour flight. They offered us magazines, but we had no overhead lights to be able to see. The crew managed to reboot the system about 2 hours after the first meal, so we enjoyed some entertainment, but after a little while, the movie and sound stopped working. After about an hour an announcement was made that the entire entertainment system would be rebooted. It started working around the last hour of the flight. Not relaxing at all."

Pros: "Business class upgrade was available for this flight, and it was well worth it."
Cons: "The food was mediocre, at best. Odd food combination choices. I don't expect gourmet on a flight, so don't try to pretend you're serving it."

Pros: "Lots of movie options"

Pros: "Finally, a great airline with a direct flight from New York to Athens and very reasonable fares. I hope they keep it that way. Also, Newark is a much better airport to fly to and from than JFK."
Cons: "Crew was ok but could have been a little better, and the drinks selection could be improved."

Cons: "Food baf"

Pros: "The food was great"
Cons: "The fleight was great too"

Pros: "Overall was good"
Cons: "Didn't live up to expectations. Halfway through a 10 hour flight the entertainment system went down. It took a few times of calling the stewards to actually communicate the issue and inexplicably the system was never reset until 15 minutes before landing. I understand things happen but communication was lacking and slow."

Pros: "Great plane (new) Good food Boarding was very very smooth"
Cons: "The crew was OK, some of them where a little "grumpy" There was no WiFi on the plane (not even paid, although I asked again and again). The excuse was that the plane was new and they did not have the time to install WiFi..... the bad thing is that I was counting on the paid version to keep up with work (as I did on the other flight) but was unable and there was not prior notification on that."

Pros: "Everything felt like first class, in coach"

Cons: "Everything"

Pros: "Staff very nice. Food good. Loved the stewardesses outfits!"

Pros: "That it was on time and the service was excellent! Very smooth landing and departure!"
Cons: "That the touch screen in front of me had a problem and I couldn't navigate easily. It responded with delay."

Pros: "Seat was comfortable and the extra care package and warm towels were a plus. The food was good too."

Pros: "Crew. Food wasn’t bad."
Cons: "Late leaving. Waited an hour in Joburg before we could deplane. Cramped seat (normal on most airlines)."

Pros: "Service and attentiveness"

Pros: "Crew efficient and tried to accommodate everyone."
Cons: "On the runway, the crew upgraded a family with two small toddlers. They cried on and off non stop and walked back and forth in business class. I pay for business class so I can have some peace and quiet ! Crew informed everyone that they switch this family seat due to the safety of this family seat. I understand they need seats but crew should upgrade another couple with no toddlers and maybe a star alliance gold member rather than give this family with the toddlers the upgrade. No one wants to pay for business class with 2toddlers crying and up and down aisle ."

Cons: "Turkish Airlines does not communicate with its passengers. If the flight is late (as both of ours were), you wait with no information as to when the flight leaves. The same lack of communication occurs once you on board. I joked to my wife that the cargo on a Fed-Ex flight is given more information. Arrived in Istanbul with a very tight connection. Airplane was not given a gate so we needed to take a bus to terminal. The bus dropped us just about as far from our connecting gate as possible. Since it took four buses to transport passengers, one could have been designated for US bound transfer passengers (who were all leaving from same group of gates) and taken us directly there."

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Sleeping accommodations, storage, crew attentiveness in business class was outstanding. 5he business lounge in Istanbul was the best ever. Great airline."

Pros: "The entertainment option was pretty good"
Cons: "There's very limited legroom on this plane."

Pros: "The service of the crew was exceptional"

Cons: "Didn't happen. My first leg to Athens was canceled which created a humongous headache since it ended up canceling my return flights. Air Canada had to put me on completely new flights there and back. I think this has taught me to go directly through an airline. Justfly was not helpful. Neither was Turkish airlines."

Pros: "Entertainment system was great. Plenty of movies, games, & tv shows available. Food was good - two full meals during 10 hr. Flight to and from Chicago. Seats, even in economy, were comfortable. Was very happy to learn that baggage would be checked thru to Denver from Athens, even though plane changes were made in Istanbul and Chicago. The two bags did not make the Chicago/Denver transfer, but were on the next United flight an hour later."
Cons: "Boarding process in Athens and Istanbul was confusing. Although boarding groups were assigned, none were used that we could tell. Just mass lineups, with little or no organization that we could see."

Pros: "Food"
Cons: "After bus arrived at steps kept on it 20 mins. 2 more buses arrived in this time. Still wait. Then let out all at once. Massive queues to board. Poeple not dressed for this. Poor babies crying Maybe 15 mins waiting in 2am cold on tarmac."

Pros: "Entertainment"
Cons: "Crew are rude. They look always hurry, don't care what passengers need. Food is terrible, there is a menu, but when we ask for food on menu, they said no more, only this one left, so i skipped meal."

Cons: "Crew members form the plane need to speak better english and be more courteous.need to have a smile to help passengers. Flights are delayed for no reason."

Cons: "My flight was cancelled twice within 24 hours before takeoff. All I got was an email saying it was cancelled and a number where no one could help me. I spent over $40 international calls just to reschedule my flight, only to have to take a $80 cab to the airport to have a human help me. Worst customer service and worst experience. I was trying to get home after a natural disaster struck my hometown and Turkish Airlines actually made that experience even worse. At no point did anyone even apologize for cancelling two of my flights without another option until a full week later. I had to pay to fly myself home from Boston because they were so unhelpful. Would never recommend Turkish Airlines to anyone I know whn traveling internationally."

Cons: "There were some passengers didn't allowed to get on a flight because of over booking. Some of them didn't speek English and didn't understand why thy have to stay in the airport.On the other hand I saw how the officials laughed at him because he tried to fight for the place on the flight by using a foreign language. It is an ugly phenomenon that does not respect people"

Pros: "Everything is perfect."
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Everything else"
Cons: "Leg room is too narrow and seat cushion is too harsh to sit on for a 12 hour flight"

Pros: "Great food, good selection of movies."

Pros: "excellent service, nice crew, seats are comfortable no complaint on that front Airport check in crew very professional attitude and cooperative I had no glitch whatsoever the whole journey starting in Los Angeles Luggage was promptly taken care of upon arrival"
Cons: "Honestly I have no negative comment to mention All went well I would fly Turkish Airlines again and again"

Pros: "Entertainment is good, many movies and games for kids."
Cons: "Flight attendants are rude."

Pros: "Our screens didn't work and they wouldn't move us to a business class seat. It was also freezing, everyone was complaining, I even got sick. It's the worst. Will never travel again with them"

Pros: "great customer service!!!"
Cons: "I ordered vgml (vegan meal) a head of time, been confirmed, but non of my most recent 4 flights had it:("

Pros: "Great crew! So efficient and friendly. I understand why it is, but security was over the top. Cabin was a big cramped. Super food offerings!"

Pros: "Perfect trip, seats comfortable and soft even in economy and having personal entertainment was a pleasant surprise. also good selection of films. Food was just a sandwich but better quality than other companies."

Pros: "The flight was great and the service was wonderful. The plane was new and clean. A huge plus was the video entertainment in every seat along with headphones and USB Charging Port. They poured me a double Glenlivet scotch on the rocks at NO CHARGE!"
Cons: "I booked three round-trip tickets from LAX to Athens. Our daughter did not fly with us there but we checked with ticketing in LAX and they booked her seat anyway. The issue came when we tried to leave Athens the airlines then said that I had to purchase a one-way ticket! They informed me that the flight was cancelled for my daughter because she didn't fly to Athens. The ticket was almost $1,500.00 and I intend to get my money back but it was unfortunate that they had to charge me for it in the first place."

Pros: "Food from Cape Town to Istanbul was very tasty and juicy. Yummy."

Cons: "I had a connection from Istanbul to Frankfurt with Lufthansa . I was disappointed that TK airlines did not allow me to check the luggage through to Frankfurt because the flight was on a different ticket . As an Elite Plus member , I expect better cooperation among the star alliance member airlines . I had to check out and back again , took almost two hours of waiting in lines . Good that on this occasion I had sufficient time and did not miss the LH flight ."

Pros: "As above"
Cons: "As above"

Pros: "I used the prime lounge in Istanbul and when it was time to go, I was able to practically walk on the plane without any wait. The seats were comfy and didn't have a ton of legroom but it wasn't bad. The staff we're friendly and helpful. The in-flight entertainment had a pretty impressive selection and had one of the best-designed interfaces I've seen so far (and I've ridden a variety of airlines). Last and most important, the food was hands down the BEST I've had on a plane. Turkish is killing it, they're my new go-to airline!"
Cons: "I really can't complain about anything, even if I try! Maybe the touch screen sensitivity on the entertainment console seemed a little off, but that's just nitpicking"

Pros: "It was a nice and short flight"
Cons: "No entertainment system at the seat."

Pros: "Great staff!!"
Cons: "N/A"

Cons: "Luggage was held back in Istanbul. It was broken into and never made it to NYC. They shipped to Texas at which point it had been opened and rifled through. Unprofessional."

Cons: "The plane left late I almost lost my next plane to Los Angeles a good thing the next plane was late so I make it"

Pros: "Good overall service"
Cons: "The staff could've been more patient"

Pros: "Flights left on time. Boarding was good."
Cons: "It was blazing hot on every flight. Several guests complained yet the staff kept saying it was cool enough and would not turn it cooler. Although the menu said cheese sandwiches were available at any time, we were told there weren't any when we asked for one. The guest next to me would push the attendant button and the staff would walk by several times without even making eye contact with her."

Pros: "Hey, two checked bags free, free in flight meal and drinks including alcohol, free in flight movies and music, free headphones, free blankets, and a free toothbrush, yea toothbrush, its like flying in the way way back."
Cons: "The check in lines are very very long and take forever"

Pros: "Everything was top notch.. the food, the service, the overall experience."

Pros: "Newer plane"
Cons: "Boarding process was very unorganized and slow. People were allowed to act like cattle rushing the gate."

Pros: "Service when it was done"

Cons: "TIME FROM ONE TERINAL TO OTHER TERMINAL TOO SHORT"

Pros: "I was able 3 soccer games live during the flight. Food was also very good."

Pros: "Nothing"

Pros: "Price"
Cons: "Worst airline I have flown, avoid if at all possible. We saved $400 each on a long haul flight from LAX connecting through IST and we should have spent the extra money. Flight attendants are extremely rude, not helpful, the food is terrible, the planes are all old Boeing 777-300 likely purchased second hand and seem to be falling apart on the inside. I saw flight attendants kicking, punching, and body slamming carts and other items to get them to fit in their racks in the kitchen areas, I hate to think what that means for safety of critical items. Just stay away for your safety and sanity"

Pros: "I liked most of the processes but only boarding process was complicated."

Pros: "Nice short-ish flight. No major issues."
Cons: "Headphones. Lack of entertainment options on this leg of the flight."

Cons: "There was no in-flight entertainment"

Pros: "Seat was comfortable. Looked new."

Cons: "I was stranded in Dublin after being rerouted by Lufthansa and they were no help at all"

Cons: "not so crowded"

Cons: "Well,my whole trip was an adventure! I booked it online but in reality, it wasn't what was advertised. There was a problem with my checked in bag, so i had to pay 22 pounds extra to fit it in a connection flight and now i have to send receipt to get the refund. On my way back, there was a delay, so"

Cons: "My luggage was left in Athens due to late arrivals in Athens to Munich. My son received his I didn’t, huge inconvenience"

Cons: "I don’t have bed for my baby and I asked the server for yogurt she never tell me they have or not"

Cons: "He option to split groups of travellers."

Pros: "Plane was comfortable, ample, with plenty of room, departed and arrived sharp in time"
Cons: "Boarding process was a mess, no one respected nor enforced priority boarding, they call for business and preferred access boarding and everyone rushed, and the airline agents just started to accept all people"

Pros: "On board crew was friendly and helpful"
Cons: "Muslim meal does not mean all Muslims eat curry. It’s rediculous that we cant have a decent English breakfast instead you get curry or some form of curry for breakfast, lunch and supper. Your so called Muslim meals are not suitable for kids!! There is no such thing as a Muslim meal either. It’s simply called Halal otherwise then everyone else’s meals should be called Christian or Jewish meals etc. Also I requested help with transfer to my last flight which was horrendous because I’m one adult with 4 kids ages 1 to 11 and my eldest has sever learning disability. I nearly missed my flight because our flight landed late and I was struggling to keep my kids safe and together while running for the next flight. Somone should have been there to help with transfer."

Cons: "breakfast food"

Pros: "Crew was friendly"
Cons: "Lost my luggage and was late"

Pros: "Easy and efficient boarding. Flight attendants were very good. On time arrival."

Pros: "Timeliness, crew, and almost every aspect of the flight"
Cons: "Boarding process was very diorganized!"

Pros: "On time. Friendly crew. Great seat with space."

Cons: "This flight from Athens was delayed which caused us concerned for our connecting flight in Frankfurt to Los Angeles. We told the crew and they were not very empathetic about our concern. It would have been great to have announced overhead or even to us personally all the gates to those of us who were getting connecting flights. We were just told to check the board outside once we landed. Lufthansa could have provided excellent service to my family if they had helped us with our connecting flight gate information to navigate the airport terminal we had never been in before. We literally ran to get our connecting flight which was upstairs once we identified the gate # by ourselves."

Pros: "Efficient"
Cons: "Delay in the arrival/departure of the flight, presumably due to the strike the day before."

Pros: "Clean aircraft, very friendly crew, good food, overall great trip."

Cons: "Boarding was a mess"

Cons: "Too crowded seats were very close"

Cons: "The flight was excellent. Crew attentive and pleasant, good amenities--decent meals (special diet preferences observed on 2nd of two flights, but not first). Frequent offers of beverages and water throughout the flight from Munich to EWR, hot towels. Nice! I was not able to choose my seats until check-in, 24 hours before flight time. Of course if I wanted to pay extra (would have amounted to $60 for two flights for each passenger) I could have. Representatives at check in in Athens, were indifferent and not very pleasant."

Pros: "The flight left almost on time. I was surprised that a meal was served on a two hour flight"
Cons: "It took a long time to get off the plane."

Pros: "Service is excellent. On time."

Cons: "HEAVY PASTA DISH."

Pros: "operated by Lufthansa. Very efficient. Clean and comfortable"

Pros: "Crew on board were excellent."

Pros: "I just love flaying with Lufthansa Airlines"
Cons: "I find that bigger airplanes are more organized than the small ones."

Pros: "Congratulations for your pilot! He gave us the best landing ever! Very smooth and safe landing. One minute we were in the air and the other he was just parking the airplane!"

Pros: "The crew was very nice and the plane was somewhat new."
Cons: "Boarding is always a cluster (it is a mad dash for the gate no matter what section is called) Absolutely no entertainment was offered. Passengers' seats in front of you can almost be reclined into your lap, forcing you to recline your sit into someone else's lap to have some room."

Cons: "I would have liked more snacks passed in between meals. Our flight was delayed byv3 hours and we were starving by the latter end of the flight."

Pros: "Departure delay and change of gate at last minute. This has become a frequent occurrence even though they usually make up some of the time in flight. I would appreciate more timely information about delays."

Cons: "Announced 10 minute delay but when I got to the gate the plane had not yet arrived. Eventually the delay to depart was closer to 40 minutes. This is not the first time this happened with Aegean. I would appreciate more accurate and timely information about delays so as not to have to rush to the gate and then wait."

Pros: "plane packed full but staff still managed to look after passengers needs"
Cons: "dislike bus transfers to terminal for economy reasons"

Cons: "Was perfect"

Pros: "We had a technical problem after take off and our flight needed to return to Athens airport. The Captain assured all the pax this was not a safety related issue, and a fresh plane would be ready for us when we landed in Athens. After landing in Athens at a remote gate, we were bussed to the terminal, waited for no more than 10 minutes to another aircraft to make our journey to Paris. As we got on the bus to go to the new aircraft we were handed a letter with apologies for the disruption. In this letter we were offered a free flight anywhere within the Aegean Airlines network, valid for 12 months. I thought this was great customer recovery. The same technical and cabin crew took our new plane to Paris and we managed to make up a reasonable amount of time delay. This was an unforeseen situation handled very well. Well done Aegean."

Cons: "Only wish it was in a desent hour and not in the middle of the night"

Cons: "excessive cisa checks for my wife who is not an EU citizen"

Cons: "I would like if you call me and I tell you. 972-508935554"

Cons: "40 minute delay due to traffic at destination airport. Not Aegean's fault. Pilot kept us informed. Very nice job."

Pros: "first they announced 10 min delay, then they could not find the crew, after they appeared delay was extended to 45 min we left about 50 min late. gained some time in flight and arrived 35 min late. first batch of luggage came out relatively early and then there was a break of over 20 min before the luggage started to come out again, just as if somebody decided to have a coffee break."

Cons: "I was surprised (like many other) that the ticket did not include any baggage. The cost for the baggage at the counter was more than double of the cost on the web site."

Pros: "This was fine."

Pros: "It was fine"
Cons: "Staff is rude. We are the paying customer"

Pros: "Was ok."
Cons: "Delays due to ground traffic in Mykonos"

Cons: "Not being able to bring coffee purchased 200 feet from the gate on board was irritating"

Pros: "Border and de boarding front and back of the plane"

Cons: "The staff in Athens airport, at the ticket desks, were disinterested, and actually rude. Bad impression."

Pros: "Checking was managed efficiently and courtrously"
Cons: "Everything went smoothly"

Cons: "Need free wifi"

Pros: "The same wonderful Greek hospitality you're love on a plane. Smooth passage through security, smooth boarding process, and alight atmosphere on board. American airlines should take notes."

Pros: "Quick, straightforward, only a little late."
Cons: "The hot sweaty bus from gate to plane needs air conditioning."

Pros: "Yes, very pleasant, I would fly again"

Pros: "Comfort"
Cons: "Wifi on klm"

Pros: "Very friendly and responsive crew. Announcements from the Capitan and chief of flight attendants are very informative and comforting. Seat positions: very good leg room (even in economy)!"
Cons: "Newer airplane, as 747s are kind of outdated now, especially for long distance flights. But overall had good experience with KLM"

Pros: "Decent price for economy comfort seat, 4A."
Cons: "The flight was delayed about 80 minutes and they did not informed until when I got to the Airport. I could have stayed more at home instead of the terminal. They have also changed the boarding gate.."

Pros: "Crew good and seat OK but not exceptional for business class"
Cons: "Food was average - main course could have been better. Range of movies ok but not great"

Pros: "Flight was on time."
Cons: "Staff: from check in to landing, they could at least smile. Baggage claim was a nightmare, 6 Schengen flights in the same belt."

Pros: "Flight and the crew!"
Cons: "Staff at the airport pushing you to upgrade to first class but not making it clear only the first trip from Athens to Amsterdam which the first class uses same uncomfortable seats as the economy to pay extra 130 euros ridiculous airfrance stuff! I should have flown all the way to NYC first class!!!"

Cons: "The KLM crew are always great serving and treating you. Well above many other airlines."

Pros: "Crew was fantastic, seats and entertainment was great. Very good food choices."
Cons: "Everything was very good."

Cons: "We were allowed to choose our seats from SFO to Amsterdam but not for the return flight. I like to be able to choise my seats when I book the flight. Choosing seats 24 hours before is not convenient when traveling for the return trip."

Pros: "Crew was fantastic."
Cons: "This was the most narrow airplane seat I’ve ever experienced. So uncomfortable."

Pros: "Being fed was amazing and watching free TV was great!"
Cons: "I wish there were personal fans because it got uncomfortably hot sandwiched between people"

Pros: "KLM was a great experience compared to Airitalia. The food was good, the flight attendants were very helpful."

Pros: "The flight was smooth, the service was friendly, and the food with plentiful."
Cons: "Too much activity in the cabin during the flight."

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: "MCR airport Mert & Greet parking was smooth and efficient."
Cons: "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.....’"

Pros: "Short flight and being able to escape from drunk belligerent Passenger on previous flight"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Time and Good clean place.. in This case airpöane.."
Cons: "It was not entreteiment st all"

Pros: "The food rocks! I know that I will always be eating well with KLM. The staff is always so nice, professional and cordial...I always know I'll be in good hands with the flight."

Pros: "The flight to Gdansk took off and arrived on-time and the staff were professional."
Cons: "The flight to Amsterdam from Gdansk was late and I had to RUN to the connecting gate. 50 minutes is NOT ENOUGH time to go through passport control."

Pros: "Professional crew. Good boarding."
Cons: "No entertainment on board in business. Stale buns - staff unapologetic. Older 737 with uncomfortable seats."

Pros: "Need better quality tvs for such a long flight and better movies There were only 4 Bollywood movies and not the latest ones either"

Pros: "Fast boarding"
Cons: "The entertainment system wasn’t working for the whole 10 hour flight."

Cons: "The cabin crew was racist! She asked me to move from a seat because she wanted another guy ( obviously from her country ) to take it! Rude and racist."

Pros: "Smooth boarding, clean seats/plane, nice small aircraft (2 rows x 2 seats each), surprisingly spacious (more legroom than expected - and I’m 6’2”)."
Cons: "About 1h30min delay without an explanation. All other planes in the terminal seemed to take off on time without a problem, without exception (aside from this flight, of course)."

Pros: "Pleasant flight"

Cons: "Crowded seating, 20-year old video system, headphones that did not match the two-jack system, lackluster service in flight. Generally my experience with KLM has been good, but this was well below average."

Pros: "Very friendly crew"

Pros: "Very friendly and helpful personnel."

Cons: "They stole my money"

Pros: "Flight was lovely, crew were friendly and very helpful and food was delicious!! We travelled with assistance for mum and it was excellent and we were kept updated all through the flight."

Pros: "Everything. A truly faultless experience!"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Excellent experience with the cabin crew."
Cons: "Seats on the 777 were too narrow. This 777 had a 3-4-3 seating arraignment, it would have been better with a 3-3-3, similar to a 787 configuration. With the current layout, even with an aisle seat, I was sitting in the aisle. And I am not a large person! The flight was full, so use the 787 and two daily non-stops. For a twelve hour flight, the food was only Okay, could have been better and with a better selection. Meal timing was poor."

Pros: "787 is a great airplane. The 3-3-3 seat configuration leaves enough seat width to be just comfortable in coach."

Pros: "The last two times we connected in Amsterdam to Humberside our luggage was delayed. This time it wasn’t. The simple things give the greatest satisfaction"

Pros: "The flight attendants could not do enough for you."
Cons: "Business class was pretty empty but again I was not allowed to change my seat selection online. Pathetic check-in."

Cons: "una valija se perdió. Eso desató el descontrol que tiene KLM para seguir el equipaje. No hay como hacer tracking. No hay un teléfono a donde hablar, la web está desactualizada y con información equivocada. Direccionan a usar canales de twitter y facebook que no responden. Primer experiencia en KLM y no pienso nunca más usar esta aerolínea. Llevar el equipaje o resolver un problema sobre valijas es de lo más básico de una aerolínea y no lo hacen."

Pros: "Cabin crew very pleasant"
Cons: "Lost our bags, little sympathy from staff"

Cons: "Two hours delay in the start."

Pros: "The staff at the front desk for the check-in were extremely helpful. I had a complicated issue with my luggage and they helped me to sort it out in the best possible way. Amazing service! Furthermore, the entertainment on board is great! Nice movies, nice food, friendly flight attendants, etc. They even offered me a second sandwich =)! I truly loved my experience with KLM."

Pros: "Comfort economy well worth the extra."

Cons: "suitcase didn't turn up, although connection was quite tight"

Pros: "Wider seat than most business class"
Cons: "Row 6 in business is after the first 5 rows and Galley and restroom. Very awkward"

Pros: "Airline staff good and professional"
Cons: "Nothing one can do, for a 6.2" guy, the metal bar that forms the shape for the pouch for magazines and such digs into knees, ESP if person in front adjusts seat back. Fold out table barely accommodates laptop."

Cons: "Why do the crew have to slam the overhead and catering compartments to get them to shut?"

Cons: "The bags where damaged from the staff"

Pros: "Loads of leg room"
Cons: "Loved everything"

Pros: "KLM fed a sandwich even though the flight was only 2 hours. The crew was pleasant. Getting through the Amsterdam airport to catch a connecting flight with only an hour to do so was no big deal. Airport staff was pleasant and helpful."

Pros: "The crew was very pleasant and professional. toilets were very clean adequate overhead space"
Cons: "Very uncomfortable seats in Economy Comfort. Legroom and recline were OK but the seats were extremely narrow. No evening meal and breakfast was minimal"

Pros: "Food and drink service"
Cons: "Boarding pass facility"

Pros: "Unexpected surprise--even on a 1 hour flight at noon, they gave us a sandwich!"
