Airline reviews

Pros: "The crew was really sweet and making sure passengers were comfortable."

Cons: "Heating and serving food in plastic containers."

Pros: "Perfect"
Cons: "Perfect"

Cons: "We’ve been waiting for almost an hour now for the bags to come out. This is insane"

Cons: "They do not understand the word priority at Doha airport. Business class passengers boarded last."

Pros: "N/A"
Cons: "We were told to board, but then kept in another area close on 1 hour before we could get on the plane and this area had no bathroom facilities. The spread of seating on the plane made no sense with many open seats but also many squashed rows of people. The crew was visibly tired and irritated, they also ran out of a few catering items. It seemed as if last minute, a few different flights were combined into this one which lowered the quality."

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

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"

Cons: "Doha to Washington plane was an old plane where entertainment system did not function properly, seats did not recline etc. Emirates A380 is a lot more comfortable plane."

Pros: "The crew were very friendly and helpful."
Cons: "It seems the major airlines use older aircraft when the destination of the flight is a third world country(or Africa). The seats aren't as comfortable and the entertainment system (screens) are not as good as a Qatar and Europe bound flights."

Pros: "The flights attendants were very helpful and polite. What I enjoyed the most was the level of comfort I had. I was able to sleep for almost the entire flight. That's why it felt like it wasn't even a long flight."
Cons: "We did leave a little late but it was out of the control of the pilots and flights attendants."

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

Pros: "Staff was great"

Pros: "Thank you for a very good flight experience both from Philadelphia to Doha and Doha to Johannesburg."
Cons: "The breakfast options could have been better, but I was fed and happy, and the flight attendant was kind enough to bring me green tea when it wasn’t readily available on the cart."

Cons: "On time. Reasonably good. Satisfied with everything."

Pros: "The seats have great leg room and recline nicely"
Cons: "7kg and only one carry one!?? Budget airlines do better!! Try being a professional with a laptop and a few travel essentials and you won’t get far on Qatar. How crazy. Even if you have diamond one world status (the highest) unless u fly business class there is no chance in getting more onboard for your carryon. Works best airline my a**!"

Pros: "Flight services"
Cons: "We were supposed to fly on 04/04/18 but our Flight was cancelled due to technical problem"

Pros: "comfortable"
Cons: "nothing"

Cons: "Wrost app I don’t advise any one use it cause"

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

Cons: "Seat to LA was broken"

Pros: "I was surprised with the quality of gluten free meals served for me, it was well organised and taken care of where I never had to wait. My flight schedules were changed few days before departure by Qatar Airways, but only thing I had to do was to confirm that I have noted, my seats and all the rest of details intact, excellent."
Cons: "When the flight is changed by airline for their convenience, they would have given preferential treatment to the passengers involved. We had to bare the cost of food and make us comfortable on our own due to the delay in transit."

Pros: "Comfy, good food, good service"
Cons: "No internet. Limited movie options."

Pros: "Excellent service from the crew. Flight on time."

Pros: "The crew aboard the flight were kind and thoughtful and definitely oriented toward service."
Cons: "The security process at the gate was really disorderly. Perhaps it is because it is a new and extra step required by the US but it was definitely not efficiently handled."

Cons: "Same as above"

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

Pros: "I freceuntly fly between the US and South Africa and only fly via Qatar Airways, and every experience thus far has been great. The food is good quality, friendly crew and I would recommend it to anyone."
Cons: "The sandwiches are a little dry and movie selection a little limited."

Pros: "Very kind & friendly crew. Boarding was smooth & flight was comfortable. Food was good considering it's airline food."

Pros: "Unfortunately..."
Cons: "...as mentioned, I don't have the pleasure of rating this flight because of the boarding delays and missing the flight. Very disappointing."

Pros: "Great selection of movies and tv shows"
Cons: "Entertainment screen is too dim even on highest brightness setting"

Pros: "Service of air stewards very friendly and polite"
Cons: "This goes for Qatarfigjta from harare to Doha and Doha to Washington DC and back. I am not going to give individual report on each one. Food - my daughter could barely eat anything and the vegetarian meals were stone cold most of time. It was hard to eat at Qatar airport because not only is the food terrible (Burger King and bad Asian food) but outrageously expensive. Our media system did not work for one leg. ** way to many ads on your media system. Every time you watch a new TV episode, you have to sit through 5-6 ads for stuff that is not interesting and the same each time. ** plane info on media system keeps reverting to Arabic even when English is indicated as preferred la gauge. We had to place our iPads in checked luggage for flights from harare to USA as we went through Qatar. *** I asked for quiet seats and was given seats near kitchen and toilet even though I booked in hours in advance. One leg had my ten year old daughter and I in different rows even though I checked in 4-5 hours in advance Of flight . ** staff moved my hand luggage without my permission and without informing me - it was stressful trying to find it."

Pros: "Excellent experience overall, the food was decent, the seats were comfortable and had enough space for me at 6ft tall, the staff were very friendly and helpful, entertainment selection was good with plenty of new movies out. I had no problems with my layover. The baggage allowance was great as I had extra luggage from my trip. I'm very happy with their customer service, the day before my first flight I received a phone call from Qatar's customer service saying that due to delays I wouldn't be able to make my connecting flight to Edinburgh so they would like to book me on another flight instead of me having to wait 24 hours in Doha. I was thoroughly impressed with this service."
Cons: "I did not have wifi available from Doha-Johannesburg"

Pros: "Stuardess verry nice, exceptional"

Pros: "Its like traveling in the old days when flight attendants were nice, good looking and absolutely helpful. Bravo! Planes are new and on time."
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Timely response on the phone."

Pros: "Great crews, excellent airplanes, wonderful in transit experince."
Cons: "In flight coach meals were average."

Pros: "On time departure, friendly crew. Comfortable seats for economy class, plenty of entertainment options. A pleasant experience"

Pros: "the flight was very comfortable . the movies were very good."

Pros: "Again on time and effortless boarding made the overall experience a good one."
Cons: "Our suitcase was damaged...still in the process of trying to get it fixed. Hopefully it will be done soon. I will then update this report. Could maybe clean the toilets as it did become a bit messy."

Pros: "Left and arrived on time, meals were above expectations."
Cons: "Difficult boarding procedure."

Pros: "It was not a full flight. It was ok."
Cons: "Well, I noticed when the person in front of me reclined their seat, I had a hard time adjusting the entertainment screen so I could see it properly."

Cons: "Food was below average Could have been better for elderly people.. Boarding: No wheel chair assist. asked for 2 wheel chair assist - for myself and my spouse..but got for only one.had to wait till last min at boarding where tickets where issued as no one was available..hurried in last min to security gate."

Pros: "Great personnels!!"
Cons: "Overall nothing but great Service!!"

Pros: "2 bag checks allowed and being giv n th option to check in an additional carry on at no charge."
Cons: "Boarding was hodge-podge. Seats are way too close together for a long haul...person's tray in front of me was in my face the entire trip and she didn't bother inclining throughout so had to eat my meals like a contortionist. Cramming more seats into a finite space seems to be what all airlines are doing these days. This of us whom are above average in height are forced to insure a more painful and uncomfortable flight as a result."

Pros: "Comfort, entertainment, amenities"
Cons: "You have to improve the food service. The food tasted horrible. You have to circulate the beverage cart more often."

Cons: "not friendly staff delayed and no help. cost me so much did not get anything"

Pros: "The service from the crew was amazing"
Cons: "The food was not bad compared to some air lines"

Pros: "Vegetarian food"
Cons: "If you provide blankets"

Pros: "The Cabin Crew is pleasant when you are boarding the plane"

Cons: "Fly Dubai are just substandard. The codeshare flight are ruining the reputation of Emirates."

Pros: "Entertainment choices are good"
Cons: "Crew in economy section was not good, did not serve alcohol even once and when asked they said they will bring later but never did. Bluetooth audio did not work for me so I could not use my noise canceling headset."

Cons: "I wished I was in business class..."

Pros: "Great service and attitudes by staff."

Pros: "Direct flight"
Cons: "South African airlines allowed me to reserve a seat. But Emirates didn't have it in the system when I checked in."

Pros: "Professional flight attendants."
Cons: "Inconsistency in packing policies. My sister And I each had a curtain to bring back. I was told that it had to be boxed and wrapped and she wasn’t. Also there were issues with baggage claim at IAD. I took about 45 minutes for the bags to come out."

Cons: "Because my husband and I couldn't complete the online check in, we ended up sitting on different ends of the plane."

Pros: "I love everything about Emirates."
Cons: "N/A"

Pros: "Nice flight sttendents"
Cons: "Seats too small"

Cons: "Departure and arrival at almost mid night which difficult for reach home at night, kids can't wait at airport."

Pros: "Good leg room"
Cons: "For an 8 hour flight - we were given a sandwich and breakfast. Expected to be served dinner and breakfast given the time."

Pros: "Crew was friendly, food was good and entertainment great. Space between front row seats in economy class was good."
Cons: "all good."

Pros: "The flight from Johannesburg to Dubai on an Airbus A380 was the best , the return was on the 777ER it's a bit older avoid it if you can, I prefer the a380 it's roomy, more comfortable and modern, the food was good, the cabin crew very helpful and friendly and both flights were on time. I'll be flying only Emirates from now on"
Cons: "Just the coffee was terrible lol,"

Pros: "service , crew , food entertainmentminimal"
Cons: "not much"

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: "The flight didn't feel long at all since I was very comfortable throughout. They offer good on-flight services and an endless list of movies to watch. I give this 9/10."

Cons: "I checked in online, but when I went to drop my bags there was about a 20 min delay. the agent needed to make 2 phone calls and conference with 2 supervisors. All this without letting me know what was going on."

Pros: "i liked everything on the trip. it was great. gulalai"

Pros: "Every thing looks perfect, but since Emirates want to go one step further, then they should cosider the feet rest"

Cons: "Flight attendants were rude on the Washington to Dubai flight"

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?"

Cons: "We have booked two tickets separately. One for me and the other for my wife and kid. But we were travelling together. When we checkin, we told we need the seats together. But, they did not give the seat together. Also, our connection time was 2 hours for the next flight. To receive the baggage in the port of entry, it took more than 1 hour 15 mins in the carousel. After that we had to clear customs, change terminal and clear security in 45 mins to catch the next flight. It was really tough for us. They could have handled the baggage little efficiently."

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

Pros: "We liked the selection of movies. The stewards were extremely helpful and kind."

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: "Better plane with much better entertainment system. Decent food. Once I had missed my connecting flight because of the flight delay, they promptly arranged for a hotel to stay at, as there wasnt another flight to NYC for 12 hrs. Otherwise I would have been really pissed."
Cons: "First time I have had mediocre crew on an emirates flight. The guy serving my section was not particularly friendly, had a bit of an attitude problem and spent a little too much time chatting up an attractive female passenger. Again, disorganized boarding process. First time I have experienced such terrible service on emirates."

Pros: "Intertainment,"
Cons: "India to dubai had poor Intertainment system"

Pros: "Emirates are always very good in every department, unfortunately for the third trip in succession on the outward journey they ran out of the main dish on the dinner menu."

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."

Pros: "MORE STAFF NEEDED ON FLIGHT"
Cons: "PRESSURE ON STAFF"

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."

Pros: "Emirates has the best crew. Very professional, providing excellent service."
Cons: "I liked everything. This is a great airline!"

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."

Pros: "Wifi availability. Comfort."

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "Not knowing about the additional lay over in Larnaca. No mention was made of this layover during the booking process. It just makes this flight extremely long. Furthermore you sit in the uncomfortable plane for a hour. Will most probably never take this flight again."

Pros: "Food"
Cons: "Old plane. Uncomfortable seats"

Pros: "The flight and crew were excellent. Turkish Airlines business is always good."
Cons: "The delay leaving Heathrow was not so good.... missed connecting flight in Istanbul and no availability on the night flight. Had to re-book with Air Astana."

Cons: "Thank you"

Pros: "The # of movies."
Cons: "I sat next to 2 children. It smelled like baby poo off and on for the whole flight. There are no individual AC so the entire plane was on one temp which was stuffy and smelly at times. If some one passed gas, you could for sure smell it. I told the flight attendant and they agreed before I could describe so it wasn’t just me."

Pros: "Everything...the food was delicious, the staff was gracious and always went the extra mile."

Pros: "-Flight staff -Flight entertainment"
Cons: "-Last hour gate change -Parking lot instead of gate (both in Wien and Istanbul) -The answer of counter person about the crowdness"

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

Pros: "Crew were so patient"
Cons: "During the delay we had to wait inside the cabin and it was too hot:( children got mad:/"

Pros: "Great choice of recently released movies."

Pros: "Crew was very kind"
Cons: "Food was terrible. Far from what usually TK is expected to offer on an short international 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: "All the flight attendants were very nice and helpful. The food was pretty good. The movie selection helped the flight go by quickly."

Pros: "The crew was really polite and the food was amazing, my favorite part was the dessert!"

Pros: "Food okay"
Cons: "TV/Movie/music were not working. The temperature in the plane was very hot throughout flight."

Cons: "the bathrooms were cleaned. the service was not satisfying. the food was not edible. also, the plane was sticky!"

Cons: "Dealy my flight"

Cons: "They refused to print my boarding pass when I made to the counter on time. Because I didn't have a boarding pass I could not make the flight and had to rebook for 3 days later"

Cons: "na"

Pros: "Good schedules, short wait, nice and helpful personnel, on time, nice plane, bathrooms, good food"
Cons: "No air in cabin"

Cons: "You could be choose food... one of the dish was only pasta... what about the people who's allergic? I am... The business class crew was very stuck up! Totally looked down at people who wasn't in the business class... The Aircraft has no AC that you could adjust air blowing on you! It was incredibly hot the whole time !"

Cons: "Food was dried out and tasteless"

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

Pros: "Easy check in online, staff onboard very pleasant, good varied food onboard"
Cons: "Everything was smooth... what happened to the turkey delights at the beginning of each flight?"

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: "Crew service, food and entertainment. Will fly again with this airline and recommend it to others."
Cons: "The lack of space, how small the seat is. On very long flights gets very uncomfortable."

Cons: "My luggage just disappeared on a flight from VIE to Istanbul. Those lost baggage handlers are totally unmotivated also. No explanation at site, barely any email follow up. That's it????? Also on the way back they took away cameras. My professional camera and lens equipment was handled poorly, thrown around carelessly and the lens got damaged. I am quite unhappy with this airline"

Pros: "Over all Turkish airlines is a class airlines"
Cons: "can't think of anything I didn't like about my flight"

Pros: "Service and food - real silverware"

Pros: "Turkish Airlines I usually pretty good (I fly them a lot), the boarding was fine and the crew OK (as usual they are pretty short in English)"
Cons: "Food was really not very good. Pasta was undercooked and barely warm. Entertainment was pretty mediocre with old films, very limited selection and no control (just channels). Last but not least Turkish needs to update their policies on electronics, I was reading a kindle on Airplane mode, but was forced to turn it off. This is over the top and no longer required on many airlines. Time to modernize attitudes here."

Pros: "So quick boarding"
Cons: "No entertainment due to "technical issues" Also old fashioned entertainment system with different channels older plane"

Pros: "aircraft was clean and well maintained, generally good service on board"
Cons: "Flight was delayed due to weather in Istanbul, information provided to passengers about delay and options was nonexistent"

Pros: "The crew was friendly and the food was good. Being from the US I was not expecting food in a 2.5 hr flight!"
Cons: "The seats were not as comfortable as in the Airbus for the transatlantic flight."

Pros: "on time, pleasant flight"
Cons: "no issues"

Pros: "I don't understand, national flags so minimum information to passenger to found connection flight gate in Istanbul airport. No passports controller, no one person. Finally i found may gate..in have seated at boarding lounge, after that we must que again, they make passport control..wasting time."

Pros: "On time and the crew very friendly"
Cons: "Boarding was not very well managed. They did not stick to the proper sequence."

Pros: "Entertainment options"
Cons: "There was no food for me and my wife. I don't eat Beaf or Fish and wife is a pure vegetarian. We placed our special order during booking but were told that we had to inform the airline 1 day before to make special order booking. Leg space is very less in flights."

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

Pros: "It was a 12 or 13 hour flight and except for sitting too much we were never uncomfortable. The service level made me think we were back in the 80's. Hot towels, attentive service, tons of food and free drinks. There was actually one meal that we would have eaten even if it wasn't on a plane. They gave out full size blankets and pretty fluffy pillows. (I bring our own anymore, because you never know if you will get one on most airlines, and if you do they're usually useless). Their entertainment system was amazing. We caught up on all the recently released movies that we've wanted to see for FREE! If only Netflix had this quality of movie offerings. They had fresh flowers in the huge bathrooms. It's that type of attention to detail you just really don't see anymore."
Cons: "Can't think of a thing that could actually be changed."

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

Pros: "Service"
Cons: "Crowded -/ entertainment equipment bad"

Pros: "Excellent service. Very good food. Amazing for a 2 hour flight. Full meal instead of brezels."

Cons: "No applicable"

Pros: "quick and easy boarding - nice staff."

Pros: "fOOD WAS GOOD"
Cons: "didn't LIKE THAT I DIDN'T GET AN AISLE SEAT AS I WAS ASSIGNED."

Pros: "The food with Turkisj airlines is always amazing. Service is great. Cleanliness always kept up through the flight"

Pros: "Good old style service"
Cons: "Leg room is very tight"

Pros: "I liked the food on my flights. The seats were comfortable. The movie selection was very good as well. They had a lot of new releases."
Cons: "I noticed that food service on both my Turkish Airline flights for this trip was slow. I feel in general passengers take a longer time to be served and the time it takes the crew to clean up the trays after a meal is even longer. Some the the passengers win my flights were even getting out of their seats to bring their trays to the flight attendant station because they wanted to be more comfortable in their seats. I also noticed they did not come by to collect trash as frequently as other airlines. The entertainment selection was good as far as movies but the music option was very limited and difficult to navigate."

Pros: "Food and entertainment"
Cons: "Always delay and let to flight ... Not respect the time"

Pros: "amazing and great customer service"

Pros: "The crew on this flight were excellent. Friendly and professional. Attentive and patient."
Cons: "The food needs major improvement. What has happened to Lufthansa??? Other people I know on different flights also have big complaints about the food."

Pros: "The crew did a good job dealing with so many customers and in one instance was able to resolve a minor conflict with seat way backs."
Cons: "The seats should be fixed to prevent them from going back as far as they do. With space so small as it is, it is unnecessary to have them go back so far if at all. The food was poor, especially the cold egg and pepper sandwich at the end. My guess is that they were suppose to be heated which would have made them much better but the crew decided to give them out cold."

Cons: "More space on economy for long flights."

Cons: "Agent changed our flight to Munich and sent as a email with with confirmation on July 10. involuntary. On July 20. I checked Lufthansa app and found that only flight that was shown was flight Toronto-Thunder Bay. After 3 hours of phoning I found that flight from Munich to Toronto wasn’t available for date that was given us in email. Only option was day earlier or later. Left us to take day earlier and we could not changed last flight( Toronto- Thunder Bay). We had to come on Aug 22. and stay in Toronto for 27 hours and than take a flight to Thunder Bay on Aug 23. We lost a day of our vacation, had to stay at hotel. Not good experience at all. We still don’t know whom to complain about that."

Pros: "The food was very good and the crew were great."
Cons: "Due to security concerns and having to go through security again, the flight was delayed."

Cons: "They lost my luggage and we barely made it to our connecting flight"

Cons: "Arrived late due to bad weather in Houston, about an hour late."

Pros: "Great crew. I love Lufthansa. I just wish there was more room for my legs."
Cons: "More leg room!"

Pros: "The problem was with the booking, cancelled flights- under stable- but nobody willing to make it right. Flights still screwed up"
Cons: "Give some customer service to your paying customers. Don't make a bad situation worse. Practice a can do attitude. Very disappointed in customer service. Not the flight itself."

Pros: "Better food ! I had food positing with the meat roll that was provided from Delhi The tv was not working"
Cons: "Food has to be better"

Pros: "The plane, the crew"
Cons: "Some of the very nice German movies were shown only in German"

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."

Pros: "Their crews were great. Good selection of entertainments."
Cons: "Meals were not great. Their seats were hard to set for a long fight."

Cons: "Boarding was slow and the plane waited almost an hour after boarding was completed."

Pros: "Lufthansan Agent in Nigeria was very rude, has no professional skills, lost some of my medications as a result of her behavior towards me, yelling and commanding me to remove items from my bags and my hand bag.

Seats in front of toilet cluster lit up every time door was opened. Crew were slow to react. Wasn't a priority. Ruined the excellent first leg of had from Philadelphia to Frankfurt. Do they run inferior planes to South Africa compared to USA?"

Pros: "Ewerything"

Cons: "See comments above."

Pros: "Great crew. Very comfortable flight, good food. On schedule"

Cons: "When the lufthanza gate agents saw us running to catch the flight they ran into the jetway to avoid us instead of holding the plane.

Although comfortable for the ones reclining they are uncomfortable and at times painful ( taller people) and makes watching the screen impossible when fully reclined."

Pros: "Food & Entertainment were OK"
Cons: "My seat was 32C , me being disabled (wheelchair). My wife seat was 32 A and was DEFECTIVE. It could not be lowered towards the back, actually it has only the fixed position (all the way up). The lady from the seat before my wife's (31A) was lowering her seat ALL THE WAY. my wife protested, the crew tried unsuccessfully to adjust my wife's seat. Finally, instead of considering my condition and relocating us to some other seats (there were several free on this flight), the crew's lead stewardess (Friederich ?- I could not read the label, she kept it under her jacket) decided to upgrade that couple seats by moving them into the Business Class."

Pros: "Crew was great... food was wonderful. The lie-flat seat made my day."
Cons: "Nothing."

Pros: "The crew was professional & friendly"
Cons: "Food was terrible honestly, entertainment system didn't work on 1st flight."

Pros: "Great atmosphere, crew was excellent!"
Cons: "I’m 6’5”, so legroom can always be a complaint, but this wasn’t too bad. The plane appeared to be fairly old and didn’t have WiFi. Entertainment also was on an older screen which was navigated by using an old in-seat phone."

Pros: "The crews were pretty great!"
Cons: "The regulating of the temperature."

Pros: "Customer care was super supportive"
Cons: "Inflight sandwiches"

Cons: "Fix the damn KIOSKS at Vienna!"

Pros: "Crew helpful. Food good."
Cons: "Better range of movies please"

Pros: "Crew great, boarding at Nice very organised, boarding in Amsterdam not so organised!"
Cons: "A queuing system would be better-it was a bit disorganised at Amsterdam!"

Pros: "Great crew, comfortable seating with enough leg room."
Cons: "Provide dinner before getting to joburg, instead of a snack. Flight arrives late so dinner would be appreciated"

Pros: "Pleasant flight"
Cons: "We were delayed & missed our connection"

Pros: "The space at my feet with the chair in front was a bit akward."
Cons: "Not being seated next to small kids. Perhaps they should have a separate section? ;-)"

Pros: "Crew was great and professional."
Cons: "Entertainment controls were outdated and confusing to operate. There were no charging ports."

Pros: "well mannered and attentive crew - good supply of complimentary food/drink - good over all comfort"
Cons: "boarding was running very far behind - considering this is mainly a hub operations carrier - resulted in several passengers missing their connecting flights -"

Cons: "I called for a crew member 5 times and waited 25 minutes for anyone to help me with just some water. I had to get up and go to the very back of the plane to ask for some water. The plane was hot and no air to be found. This was all after we had to get back off the plane before takeoff. It was terrib"

Pros: "yes"
Cons: "not really"

Pros: "Amazing crew"

Pros: "Seating is tight. The crew was great !"
Cons: "As we landed we had to wait on the plane for an hour and a half because another plane (Spirit) was in our “parking spot.” This made it very difficult for people and connecting flights."

Pros: "Once aboard the plane, all went well and I experienced excellent service from the cabin attendants."
Cons: "The flight was delayed (again!) for some 40 minutes and I was worried that I would miss my connection flight in Atlanata. Fortunately the pilot made up for the delay (probably costing the airline thousands in fuel). It seems these days that every KLM flight I take is delayed. This stretch goes back to 2015! Yet KLM prides itself as being punctual. Not the KLM that I have been flying!"

Pros: "Very personable staff. Food acceptable for airline fare. Ticket price was outstanding."
Cons: "Paid for extra legroom, but very narrow seats not comfortable. Very difficult to sleep. Old plane--could not hear movies and unclear screen. Music sounded OK and choice was good."

Cons: "I ordered Wheel chair for my parents but one of them didn't get it at all. When my parents were checking in for flight they asked the representative about meal selection and she didn't answer their questions properly and because of that my mom didn't get proper Hindu Vegetarian food on flight instead she got Egg omelet which she couldn't eat. She has to eat just fruits. My mother is a diabetic patient and she needs a food every after some time. I never had such a bad experience before with any other airlines."

Pros: "Boarding agent extra effort to improve my seating!"
Cons: "Food amount less than expected."

Cons: "Landlords gave an unpleasant service! Which continued with late of 50min of the flight, they didn’t do anything to help/ to provide the passengers the answers. The food was cold It was comfort place to sit. Bad experience with KLM"

Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "Leg room"

Pros: "The seat was spacious and the concept of the evening meal being the lighter option was innovative and well thought out"
Cons: "Boarding was chaotic and congested with not much information or order."

Cons: "Very slow service at checkin, was not even available when I arrived at the airport"

Pros: "Comfort was better than on the previous Dash-8. Food was OK."
Cons: "Despised the cold temperature and cold draft in world business even with all vents shut off...gave me a head cold. Boarding was disorganized. There was no sense of direction; ergo, everyone was jumping in."

Pros: "Seats were comfortable and there was enough room for hand baggage. I slept during the flight so do not have opinion on entertainment."
Cons: "Not able to charge my digital devices. When serving beverages and food, the same flight attendant missed me a few times. That was annoying but other attendants were very nice."

Pros: "Great on board service from a very professional crew."
Cons: "Can't think of a thing."

Pros: "Overall everything was ok."
Cons: "Not that I cared at the time but having been asked for a rating on “entertainment” - there was none. Cheap and cheerful really. No extras over the likes of RyanAir."

Pros: "Fabulous trip with friendly, helpful staff"
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "The streaming service didn’t work"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Super delayed. Could have fixed the issue BEFORE we were sitting on tha plane for TWO hours"

Pros: "Friendly staff, good service and on time departure/arrival."

Pros: "Good information and helpfil boarding."
Cons: "Has to wait in confined area fir nearly 2 hrs before boarding. No restroom or refreshments within that area."

Pros: "All cabin crew were courteous. Refreshments were light. Check stuff were helpful, they did devise that the flight was full and due to space hand luggage would prefer to be put in hold free of charge. We did not have any problem with this. Plane was clean."
Cons: "Service was a little slow going through the gate, it seemed to take a while for everyone to get on board."

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: "Crew was courteous and polite! Entertainment system had some great movies at no additional cost."
Cons: "Poor communication between delta, KLM and Air France meant that I couldn’t check in online and get a digital boarding pass. Furthermore I couldn’t use the check-in kiosks because my name was listed as Reidmr instead of Reid, which meant that my boarding pass did not match my passport. Overall this caused unnecessary delays that were compounded by the fact that I couldn’t use my TSA precheck. My main problem on the plane was that I had to struggle to get water served to me. It’s always so dry on planes and I would have liked to be able to get more than one tiny glass of water at a time. Also, would have loved a window at my window seat. Plus no WIFI!?"

Pros: "The flight was very good, specially considering it was a daylight one. Staff was friendly and servicial. Tue food was above the industry's average."

Pros: "Short-hop flight, fit for purpose."

Cons: "Flight was delayed 8 hours. Arriving at Incheon, discovered ground crew were unaware of our arrival to take this connecting flight. However, we were put up overnight in a hotel, which was nice."

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

Pros: "Arriving more or less on time"
Cons: "Crew is awful. Disrespectful desinterested in customers find themselves very important. No service mentality whatsoever. No respectful airline would hire such arrogant self centered personalities in a service role"

Pros: "Quick (relatively) flight."
Cons: "Skinniest seat ever. Couldn't even lean back. I now have hunchback."

Pros: "Night flight so no entertainment allowed sleeping"
Cons: "Kosher food could be improved"

Cons: "Horrible. First, we lost a suitcase. It could happen but for two days they did nothing and only told us stories (so as not to use the word lies). Within a few hours (and thanks to airline assistance) we were able to locate the suitcase. Even then it took them two days to bring it to us, two precious days off our planned vacation (7 days) At the end of the shortened vacation, we got to the chek in, and told that since the ticket I had purchased form them two months earlier was too cheap ... and since the flight was Over booked, they would take me off the plane if all the passengers would arrive. It's unnecessary to describe what I felt until the plane took off. They apologize constantly, but do nothing practical. a bae company. no me nor my freinds/family will go with KLM"

Pros: "Flight unpleasant. Ground staff in Marseiile great but gate crew didn't control carry on baggage and many of us could not use overhead bins because of passengers who stowed more than one and often oversized suitcases above, so we and many others had to place carry on suitcases under seat. Attendant on plane totally unhelpful and could have rearranged a few bags to make room but preferred to stay in back of plane and talk. To be fair, rest of flight was pleasant although late due in part to boarding issues."
Cons: "Carry on baggage issues and storage on plane. One aloof and unhelpful member of flight crew."

Pros: "Staff, service"
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "I missed my flight because of MU"
