Airline reviews

Pros: "Nothing really, seats were to close to each other and it was a painful flight for 20 hrs"
Cons: "Leg-space between seats specifically when the person in front of you reclines"

Pros: "Perfect"
Cons: "Perfect"

Pros: "Food and leg room"
Cons: "All was fine"

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: "The comfort of the plane"
Cons: "The staff at Atlanta International Airport were terrible; not customer friendly. The supervisor at the check-in counter needs to be replaced. I am not one of your frequent flyers but travel internationally. However, based on his attitude I will think twice to select Qatar as my choice of airlines."

Cons: "It was delayed 3hrs but no regret from staff. Doha to staff very bad and arrogant"

Pros: "Friendly service with smile."
Cons: "Weight restrictions for carry on. I had a computer backpack along with a carry on bag which I have always taken with me on other airlines but it was not so here without paying extra charge for it."

Pros: "The service was excellent & food satisfying."
Cons: "The liquor variety could be better."

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: "Best airline I’ve ever flown. A lot more space and amenities for a great price. Boarding was easier and faster than any other airline I’ve ever taken"
Cons: "Wish there were a bit more movie selections but only because it was such a long flight"

Pros: "There was adequate seat room. The device was good."
Cons: "There was nothing I didn’t like."

Cons: "More shower stalls in the business class lounge."

Pros: "Food"
Cons: "Bathrooms"

Pros: "Crew"
Cons: "Very old flight"

Pros: "If you upgrade...it’s pricey but man doesn’t it look nice. Their regular seats are great. Get an emergency seat. Food isn’t kosher and tastes good. Never one complaint with these guys!"
Cons: "If I had to pick one thing...it’s that their free WiFi is only on select planes...not all. Sorry nothing else to dislike."

Cons: "No proper communication and very poor management. I was on an emergency and no one bothered to listen and all the passengers were sent . The customer care numbers didn't work as they operate between 8-5 !! No one to reach to .. really bad experience. Don't suggest this aircraft for folks who needs to travel urgently !"

Cons: "Seat to LA was broken"

Pros: "Food"
Cons: "Entertainment and food timings are odd."

Cons: "Comfort"

Pros: "The crew service"
Cons: "The cost of internet access"

Cons: "Same as above"

Pros: "The friendliness of the staff from check in to arrival!"

Cons: "THere was no wifi"

Pros: "Check-in was a breeze; considering this being an internationaly travel, baggage check-in process was fast and easy. Was in and out in about 5 minutes. Goodie bag was a good idea; the goodie bag contains an eye mask, mini tooth brush, paste, hand cream, etc. These all were great idea and definitely helpful. However this is ruined by the tooth paste. It was a tiny tooth paste, fair enough but the opening is sealed tight w/o a way to easily pry open. This was a total bad idea of packaging. Flight tips were also good idea and informational."
Cons: "Atlanta to Doha was about 14 hours flight. The seats were cramped and narrow (no side support) Seat cushion has been stripped down to bare minimum, so effectively you may not feel much of a cushion. Cramped legroom Seats felt like junk and I had started having leg cramps after few hours. This so disappointing for a premier airline like Qatar. Overall a very uncomfortable ride."

Pros: "On time departure and nice group of crews"
Cons: "Main food amount is small compared To other long range airlines. Did not offer coffee or Tea."

Pros: "the trip coming and going from Kuwait was very pleasant"

Pros: "Flight was on time and departed as scheduled. Flight was comfortable and seats were decent. Would have liked a little bigger seats and more legroom in the economy seats"
Cons: "Food was not up to par and seats could have been a bit bigger for the economy bracket."

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: "They had a surprise business class update waiting for me. Wonderful experience."
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "The seats were not that comfortable for a long flight and i had a very disturbed sleep"

Pros: "The crew were nice and boarding was smooth"
Cons: "the main meal was good, but it didn't come with much more. It didn't have water, dessert, or a side dish, it only came with the main meal, a piece of bread, and butter. The chair was not that comfortable, I've had a better sleep on other airlines for the same flight."

Pros: "The crew were superlative."
Cons: "The seat folded to a flat bed, yet the boulder area remained raised, making the comfort level for a tall person, somewhat rest cited. My neck really quite sore as a result. Was an old plane tho, and the controls for movies , seats etc were archaic"

Cons: "N/A"

Cons: "N/A"

Pros: "Business class setup Bar Staff"
Cons: "Being seated 5 rows and a bulk head away from my wife. Configuration of Two class A380 business class is at the back of the plane with all that increased movement and you have to wait for economy to exit before you can get off. Your diluting the benefits guys for economy profits."

Pros: "Lots of entertainment options with current movies."
Cons: "Limited leg and elbow room. Food too carb heavy."

Pros: "Great video console for a short 1.5 hour flight to Yangon"
Cons: "Nothing. Everything was fantastic. Just a really nice quick flight."

I'll be flying only Emirates from now on"

Pros: "E v e r y t h i n g ..... I understand now why they are the number ONE airlines in service. We travel enough to see the BIG difference. Thumbs up. Please don't change !!!!"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "They still catch my attention, and while traveling with them I continue to enjoy this airline."
Cons: "As per my Oslo - Dubai review (read there for more details), they cancelled my flight, put me on a flight a day later, and then left me with the bill and the inconvenience. This was the connector out of Dubai and back to Johannesburg. I've flown with them many times and I've picked up one or two small cut backs they've made like no hot towel when you get onboard, only before your arrival, and the meal seems a little more slimmed down (but still pretty tasty), They used have one or two extras which they've now taken away. Not sure why?"

Pros: "One of the best airlines I have flown. Very good with kids and they do a hell of a good job of cleaning restrooms. Food quality was great."
Cons: "Hindu meal has meat in it which was a surprise. It was too cold inside plane and they would take blankets before landing and won't give you blankets till take off is complete. They should give water bottles."

Cons: "Rude and racist cabin crew!"

Pros: "The crew member was excellent,she went all out to make my journey easy and comfortable.I have sent an email to her superior,please use her as an example.if all attendants can serve and see to passengers like her will be beneficial for emirates"

Pros: "Generally good standard, nothing to sit about but there was a selection of recent and older films and TV, OK food and fairly comfortable seats."
Cons: "While the food was ok, there were some odd omissions from the vegetarian meals that sometimes made them seem smaller or worse value compared to the non-veggie options. Still better than I've had on some other airlines though."

Pros: "Friendly staff awesome planes wonderful experince"
Cons: "Service was a bit slow. Drinks and food took quite sometime to arrive."

Pros: "It was a smooth flight"
Cons: "It was ok"

Pros: "The food was delicious, and I received the special meal I had requested with no problem. Again, great selection of TV shows and movies."
Cons: "The crew seemed a bit put off, just not very friendly. Maybe something had happened that put them all in a bad mood I'm not sure. Despite this they did help people without complaint, but you could tell they didn't want to be there. Again on this flight the TVs were an old model that was difficult to use, you had to push really hard and finagle your finger to get it to read what you were pressing."

Pros: "Low fat meal was great! (the salmon one)"
Cons: "They broke my checked in luggage!!!"

Pros: "The in-flight service, food, drink, and entertainment were excellent. If my ticket didn't say that I was on the airplane for more than 9 hours, I never would've guessed it. Flying at its best."

Pros: "Granted I was tired after being in transit for 24 hours, but this final of 4 long-haul flights was a real bummer compared to the other flights. Boeing 777 packed to 100% capacity."
Cons: "Really cramped and squished compared to other flights. Toilets at DXB were filthy (I searched around for the cleanest, which was still disgusting), with the cleaning attendant standing around in the restroom doing nothing. Duty Free shops really expensive compared to European airports. Meal on board (breakfast) was really terrible (and that taking into account that airline breakfast is always bad), really the worst I've ever had on a plane, even the Croissant was chewy and very dry. Emirates has become a massive sausage machine people-mover. It has loss its finesse and exceptional service."

Cons: "Some of the crew staff are arrogant and unfriendly. I think they need to be trained on customer service!"

Cons: "Can you enforce the team NOT to throw the luggage to keep on the belt(s) as you guys don't have to."

Pros: "The staff were wonderful and efficient. The toilets were clean and the food was much better than my first flight with emirates although the portions were small on the main meal with only four spinach ravioli offered in a tomato sauce."
Cons: "Passengers do not fit on to their seats and overflow into the space you are occupying which is so tiny as it is. There is not enough room to even reach down to pick something up if you drop it. Overhead lockers are full. I think planes either need to be redesigned with sleeping compartments (such as the second class compartments the trains have) for overnight flights or seats need to be slightly larger to make up for the fact most people are larger today."

Cons: "THe Hostess was not attentive and had to ask for things a few times. No goody basket was given although some pax did get it."

Cons: "Despite ordering a vegetarian Oriental meal, I was given a meat dish in my meal!"

Pros: "Service, Flight, food"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "The crew was great and friendly"
Cons: "How can you ran out of wine on a flight"

Pros: "Food was pretty good"
Cons: "Crew rude and disrespectful. Switched my mother’s seat without even telling us..to a middle seat"

Cons: "More space and room seating"

Cons: "I was in economy. But the legroom was very poor. The next leg of my trip was also in economy, but was much more comfortable with seats further apart and more room under seats. So, you're taking a chance."

Pros: "Nothing much what a terrible ariline"
Cons: "Turkish Ailines delayed by 5 hours. had a long layover fo 24 hours in Istanbul, forced to pay for my visa and was not even give a receipt by immigration. I think hey pocket the money"

Pros: "Crew."
Cons: "Seats are uncomfortable, not enough leg room."

Pros: "The crew is phenomenal"
Cons: "They had a deported person sitting next to me. The person was in jail and he showed me the court order That made me very uncomfortable."

Pros: "Standard"
Cons: "Seats were cramped for an international, 10 hour flight"

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: "I like the food and the service plus the entertainment on the Telvision"
Cons: "Excellent 10.0 Feb 6 2016 The service provided by the airline crew was magnificent. I enjoyed the entire flight from my departure point to the arrival point. Turkish Airline is my to go airline herein henceforth. I will implore prospective travelers to give the airline a shot (try). I can unequivocally attest that the decision to do so will not be regretted."

Pros: "The flight attendants were helpful and did extra to make the experience more enjoyable. They served with warm and sincere smile. Service and food were good."
Cons: "Comfort seats are missed greatly. Boarding area and process should be revised/reviewed for improvement."

Pros: "Crews were cooperative."

Pros: "Food was good! Loved all the goodies! Crew was friendly"
Cons: "The airplane was way to warm, for such a long flight it should've been a better temperature inside the plane, you dont want to get all sweaty and smelly while traveling!"

Pros: "almost nothing"

Pros: "Excellent Service & On time Schedule"
Cons: "Istanbul Airport Rest Rooms were not clean"

Pros: "Comfort"

Cons: "Food was dried out and tasteless"

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

Pros: "the Boarding at ATL airport was catastrophe!!!!!!"

Pros: "Entertainment was good and interesting. Food was interesting and I did not go hungry"
Cons: "Seats too close for taller people to sleep with any comfort.....almost miserable"

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: "Smooth ride, with no delays"
Cons: "Woman sitting next to me with her baby made the whole ride uncomfortable"

Cons: "I made it to the flight gate 15 minutes before the plane took off. The crew could not re-open the doors to let me in. I was late; this is understandable. However, after that, this was the worst customer service experience I have ever had. WHY WERE THE REST OF MY FLIGHTS CANCELLED? I paid for those, and I should have been allowed to be on those flights. WORST FLIGHT EXPERIENCE OF MY LIFE."

Pros: "Turkish airline was a nightmare with customer service!"

Pros: "I enjoyed my flight over from Atlanta to Istanbul. Everything was timely and clean."
Cons: "I wished that I would have talked to my flight attendant about the man that sat next to me. His body odor was so hard to deal with for a 10 hour flight and his constant getting up to go use the bathroom."

Pros: "As good as long flights can be."
Cons: "Nothing."

Pros: "Friendly staff good service."
Cons: "The grill chicken served for dinner was cold."

Pros: "There were plenty of entertainment options."
Cons: "The flight was cramped with no room to get comfortable. The crew was concerened with it being an overnight flight and rushed through service so that the lights could be turned off on the cabin. They ran out of a food option and forced a selection on everyone in the back of the plane. The person sitting next to me even had a dietary restriction and her meal had been given to another passenger. The boarding process was a mess without clear directions from the staff, it was a giant mob trying to force its way onto a plane."

Pros: "Everything"

Cons: "Leg space a nighrmare!! Was uncomfortable for all the 13 hrs of the flight. Terrible experience"

Cons: "I cannot begin to describe the plethora of issues I had with TK following the military coup. Aside from not answering emails or phones for days, even after getting in touch with someone the instructions I received were apparently only to waste my time because in the following correspondence it became clear they never intended on issuing a refund. I am a Military service member and was not authorized to take the flight I had booked, so after explaining the circumstances and submitting the requested memo...no refund! I will advise all my people to steer clear from Turkish Airlines."

Pros: "Friendly crew excellent food"

Pros: "Service when it was done"
Cons: "Infrequent service Crowded Entertainment system bad"

Pros: "I liked the friendliness of the ticket person and all the flight attendants on both flights. The cabin was clean, the climate was not too hot or cold. The pilots were very good at their jobs. The food was good."
Cons: "I didn't like having to disembark the plane in Istanbul while it was on the Tarmac nor get back on the plane while it was on the Tarmac."

Pros: "New plane with great entertainment system."
Cons: "Connection in Istanbul slow. Airport busy and poor ac. Missing luggage experience bad at tlv airport. Took more than 2hrs to leave customs area after filing claim."

Pros: "The seats were a normal size for an international flight. Everyone got a blanket, pillow, earphones and eye mask in their seat, all of which were necessary for the 11-hour flight. There were a lot of great movies to choose from, as well!"
Cons: "The bathroom garbage cans got full very early on in the flight, making it uncomfortable to use them. The stewardesses were friendly, but it was difficult to understand their English and the pilot's English (and I teach ESL). They, in turn, had a difficult time understanding me when I spoke to them in very slow, clear English."

Pros: "I know it has been some time for me to fly but I once did often I think your entertainment way and options were the best I have ever had the privalage to be on, It was great to fly with you."

Cons: "Better food offerings"

Pros: "Missed it"
Cons: "Give me back money"

Pros: "Desk attendant was very helpful, personable, and efficient"
Cons: "Couldn’t get a boarding pass for the last leg of my trip (AZO>DTW>ATL>CSG) when I checked in online, couldn’t get it at the Delta counter in AZO, nor in DTW. The staff at the Delta counter in ATL resolved it in less than ten seconds."

Cons: "Everything"

Pros: "Nothing"

Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "It was all good ✈️"

Pros: "Diverted for unclear reasons. Stuck in TSY with hotel voucher to an overbooked hotel; trying to find out of pocket accommodations after long day of no food at MIDNIGHT was a real downer! I’ll let ya know if I make it home TODAY!!!"

Pros: "Met expectations; except for treatment of an oversized passanger, which turned out good in the end."

Cons: "Discomfort bad"

Pros: "You go up. You go down. It's over before you know it."

Pros: "We finally got home"

Cons: "Due to waiting so long on the tarmac, I almost missed my ground connection. Also, two persons with impaired mobility were deplaned while nearly all the remaining passengers waited. It has been my experience in the past that those with impaired mobility are assisted in deplaning AFTER the other passengers have deplaned. This only makes sense. Also, baggage handling was slow compared with my previous experiences. Seemed to be a hard landing."

Pros: "Friendly people and clean plane"
Cons: "They lost my luggage, I hope it shows up shortly"

Pros: "on time, clean, prompt. no problem."

Pros: "Thomas our steward was excellent."

Cons: "Did not have the movie that showed in the sky magazine. The touch screen didn't sense touch very well."

Pros: "Bags arrived on the belt quickly"
Cons: "Why is there not saying precheck to use after you've been funneled through customs? ATL is advanced enough to have kiosk for arrival, even for those confused and not with global entry, but then forces you to wait in security line instead of the typically faster tea precheck line. Every minute I'm in line, I'm not spending money"

Pros: "The vegan meals were very good."

Cons: "Food"

Pros: "Flights were on-time, luggage arrived as expected. Nice job Delta."

Pros: "Boarding was smooth. Service was friendly."

Pros: "Same as above"

Pros: "Too short for food or ententertainment."

Pros: "Friendly crew, great access to a variety refreshments, robust entertainment library."

Pros: "Perfect"
Cons: "Nothing. Flight was amazing"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Transavia does not serve anything complementary, not even water. A flight between two countries that is five hours long must be better than this. I was not aware of Transavia doing that before I booked. I will never fly with them again"

Cons: "Everything was OK"

Cons: "The flight from Manchester to Amsterdam has been delayed which led insufficient time for me to transfer to HK"

Pros: "Comfortable seat, great crew."
Cons: "Flight delayed, no USB port and no entertainment"

Cons: "Special meal request was overlook. I did not mind so much as eating less does some good! It is human to err!"

Pros: "Onboard crew were nice and polite. Flight was on time (a rarity)."
Cons: "The boarding crew was rude and unpleasant, the plane was boiling hot."

Cons: "This return flight was much better than the flight going to Amsterdam. I believe the biggest factor was the type of aircraft. The old 747 just didn't meet expectations. The newer 777 on the way back was much more comfortable, with better amenities."

Pros: "Awful"
Cons: "Everything"

Cons: "Flight cancelled"

Cons: "We were changed from KLM to Airiltalia without any information sent so only because I tried to check in did I find out the flight on KLM was cancelled and we were changed to Airitalia. The Airitalia flight was very mediocre."

Cons: "The website I booked on and the Delta phone line on the printed ticket said that I had baggage when it turns out that I did not according to the check in staff and they made me pay."

Cons: "Lost all our bags so couldn’t ski"

Pros: "The crew were amazing and the flight was very smooth."

Cons: "Our lougage did not arrive"

Pros: "Face recognition was amazing"
Cons: "Too hot on plane"

Pros: "I bought the Airport tickets for my Russian friend. However customs would not allow her to board the plane unfortunately. That's not Kayaks fault. I would definitely book with Kayak again. Many thanks."

Pros: "Great food"
Cons: "I paid a top price for my ticket and expect the advertised amenities to work. Upgrade or replacement for entertainment system."

Cons: "Flight was cancelled."

Cons: "Nothing good to say about this flight. The plane was old with no entertainment. The sits where very compact and not comfortable at all. The food was a sweet bread and water. The flight attendants were rushing and will take a while if you needed anything. I felt like I was taking a bus with graffiti all over the place."

Pros: "Able to fly direct to ansterdam"
Cons: "Have to lay over on the way back. More expensive than other airlines."

Pros: "The attendants took great care of us. Super smooth flight."

Cons: "We did not get two of baggage at the destination."

Cons: "... ear plugs, masks, good food or even picking seats? I remember when it was all complementary and standard on overnight flights. Oh, and the vegetarian breakfast was unfortunately poor as well. I know you can do better, because you used to."

Cons: "Food"

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: "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: "Got to Amsterdam on time and everything was great including the staff"

Pros: "Flight was delayed for three hours and was a very stressful flight"
Cons: "Flight was not on time and got to destination very very late pier management of aircrafts"

Pros: "had problems checking in , in that I was charged for a suitcase! I have since checked my paper work and found thad that I had paid for a case! I will follow this up when I return to the UK"

Pros: "Cabin Crew was awesome."
Cons: "Entertainment System was not working and no Non-veg food option in flight."

Cons: "Flight way delayed 3 hours. Staff gave no information and wouldn't help rebook us onto other flights. They gave us food vouchers 2 minutes before we finally boarded, so we couldn't use them. The food on the plane had spoiled so we were all starving on the flight, and we all missed our connections. Horrible experience and wouldn't fly with KLM again."

Cons: "old plane, tight and uncomfortable"

Cons: "OLD plane without comfort or entertainment"

Pros: "Crew was friendly..business class seat was very comfortable and seemed wider than most Nice power outlets great entertainment system"
Cons: "Row 6 in business is after the first 5 rows and Galley and restroom. Very awkward"

Pros: "Boarding/unboarding"
Cons: "Didn't allow my carry on. Said too big. Same bag was on earlier connecting flight on much smaller plane. Also on flight on Southwest week prior. But larger intercontinental flight wouldn't allow it."

Pros: "Eveything is well arranged"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Everytime she passed she was hitting me or I had to hold my drink so that she wouldn't knock it off"

Cons: "The fact that there are different airline carriers for one flight is hard. In my second flight they made me check a bag which was considered a carry on during my first flight"

Pros: "Flight attendants tried their best given what they had to work with."
Cons: "They can not retire these old Boeing 747's soon enough. Due to mechanical problems, our flight arrived at LAXfour and a half hours late and further problems with the cargo door caused an additional one hour delay of our take off."
