Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Cons: "They do not understand the word priority at Doha airport. Business class passengers boarded last."
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: "Crew was very attentive & met all my expectations."
Pros: "Food and leg room"
Cons: "All was fine"
Cons: "The vegetarian option for breakfast was a stale waffle with apple compote. Inedible."

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

Pros: "The flight went well, from boarding to landing."
Cons: "We were informed at origination that we would be put up in a hotel in Doha. Online and also at check in desk. When we arrived in Doha we were directed to a desk for hotel booking. After waiting inline 45 minutes we were told we don't get a hotel with reduced economy fare."
Pros: "smooth flight"
Cons: "- the baggage drop off counter guy was rude, so was his supervisor, they forced us to check our carry-on luggage and made it as they're doing us a favor for not checking our backpacks - there was a problem with the flight and got delayed 90 min, we missed our connecting flight and had to stay in DOH airport overnight - the food was really bad compared to other flights by QA, my wife got food poisoning from their food"
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."

Cons: "Boarding took longer than other airports. Too many redundant checks for no apparent reason."
Pros: "Smooth take off and landing."

Pros: "Great selection of movies and tv shows"
Cons: "I had to ask for everything. Crew members kept passing me by for food service and drink service even though I was awake. I had to tap/call them each time they passed by. It turned into a joke among me and the people sitting next to me. Entertainment screen is too dim even on highest brightness setting"
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."

Pros: "Again on time and effortless boarding made the overall experience a good one."

Pros: "Staff was very friendly and food was very good."

Pros: "The trip was very pleasant as usual, being frequent flyer on Qatar airways since 2005, I can only tell that this is so far the best airline company. Great service. On time if not ahead Never lost a bag or got it delayed. Very diversified entertainment program Lovely staff Confortable and clean flights. And of course convenient price.

Pros: "The service from the crew was amazing"

Cons: "They asked me to pay for my luggages. It is strange"
Pros: "It was fine - overall pleasant/nothing."
Cons: "It was fine - overall pleasant/nothing wrong, but not outstanding, either. It helps to have no one in the middle seat, but it would have been nicer to have slightly more comfortable seating, and a bit more privacy."
Pros: "Crew was very attentive, information from the cockpit was enough to let us know but not disruptive"
Cons: "Boarding was one long line that other passengers in the airport had to walk through. This was difficult for passengers with kids and those with needed special accommodations Ike wheelchairs, canes etc"

Pros: "Food / movies"
Cons: "Comfort/ staff"

Cons: "Older plane with no entertainment"
Pros: "Air hostesses were very courteous, friendly and the cabin was clean and comfortable. My flight from jfk to Geneva (then Zurich) was cancelled due to weather in Geneva (Swiss 23) so I got upgraded to a delta flight to Brussels then to Zurich Comfort+ !!! Thank you!"
Cons: "Flight from Zurich to Johannesburg: Swiss 288 (airbus a340-300) Sat in the last row of the Swiss air flight, economy, which was okay but our whole row video enternatinment system didn’t work. You’d pick a movie and it wouldn’t play. The games, camera and flight status animation all worked but not the movies. Air hostess tried resetting , still nothing. But it was a great opportunity to have a lovely conversation with my new German Friend Barbara and read my book! More lactose intolerant alternatives for breakfast which had much (cheese, yogurt, croissant) Other than those two , excellent flight. Thank you Swiss!"
Pros: "Quick and easy- no problems. We had drink service and a yummy croissant. Flights attendants were really nice and spoke great English."
Pros: "Good service - including snacks and drinks. Smooth flight."
Cons: "Upon boarding, the agents in the airport gave us a hard time over a bag that definitely met carry-on requirements. Almost made us check it, and then changed their mind last minute. Very unnecessary/dramatic situation, especially since we flew with that bag via carry-on multiple times (and on even smaller planes)."

Pros: "The crew members were professional and we really appreciate their high quality of service. Love the food and we enjoyed the wide selections of entertainment that was provided."
Cons: "On ticket it said time between flights was 1hr 25min, but as soon as we got off the plane we had to RUN through Zurich airport, where 1000 other people were all trying to funnel down the single escalator to Passport Control, to get to our gate. Then we had to wait in another Passport Control. TERRIBLE and stressful. The actual flight was fine."
Cons: "Our luggage was left behind in Zurich after an unnecessary gate check. There were plenty of room in the overhead bins, and we purposefully bought the luggage because they were sized for bin storage."
Pros: "Snack offered was tasty"
Cons: "No USB charger in seat"
Pros: "The planes were clean and in good repair. The staff was well trained, polite, efficient. The food was excellent. Our entire experience with Swiss Air was the best in ten weeks of travel we have completed this year."

Pros: "Comfy, loved the individual Tvs and food was great!"
Cons: "No inflight entertainment."
Cons: "There is no question about check-in?? My ticket, booked through Kayak, did not state that no baggage is included. The Swiss air just said I should have picked it up from the booking and forced me to pay Euro 30, which I will claim back from Kayak. This is gross misrepresentation and on the same ticket flying a luggage was included."
Pros: "The crew was very attentive and accommodating."
Pros: "It was fairly comfortable & the staff was pleasant. The initial leg from BCN to Frankfurt went very smoothly."
Cons: "The flight 2nd flight from Frankfurt to Boston was significantly delayed for a variety of issues, and ( though not really within Lufthansa’s control) the security at Frankfurt was easily the most disorganized & poorly run situation I’ve ever encountered. There was almost constant interruption for announcements at the outset, with information that wasn’t necessary & actually made waiting for an extra hr + more frustrating. I give the crew/staff credit for doing their jobs well enough that it still managed to be a decent flight in the end."
Pros: "Smooth and easy flight"
Cons: "Food and drinks served late"
Pros: "Fantastic crew!"
Cons: "Both outbound and inbound flights had defective/nonfunctional entertainment screens at our seats."
Pros: "The flight was fine, but there was not enough time to transfer between the gates in Frankfurt. That also did not give us enough time for our luggage to transfer."
Cons: "Longer transfer between flights in Frankfurt"
Cons: "They lost 2 pieces of luggage in Munich. We are only here on 3 day vacay and will not have our bags until same time tomorrow."
Cons: "Im tall and couldn’t affort the better spaced seats so I was pretty cramped on most flights and I paid over $200 to even get those, just so my wife and I could sit together."
Pros: "Crew was great and friendly"
Cons: "It would be nice if the seats had more leg room. Staff was super nice. Food is not bad"
Pros: "Nothing except the crew were very efficient and helpful"
Cons: "Economy seats. No recline. THAT IS NOT BUSINESS CLASS - This is a joke! Putting an empty seat in the middle does not make it business class. Mis-leading seat image when selecting seats. Shows Buisness class large and 2X2 and Economy at 3x3. When you get on the plane it just a one large economy plane with a mark in business "Extra space for you in the middle seat". Food was cold food - no hot food on the whole plane - only hot coffee. I am not paying 4 times the amount to get economy seats that I can get and most probably get lucky and have an empty seat next to me. STAR ALLIANCE IS REALLY GOING DOWN AND LUFTHANSA IS THE WORST. Will never travel Lufthansa business class every again."
Pros: "Non eventful flight."
Pros: "Standard German efficiency. Neither good nor bad."
Pros: "Good crew and plane"
Cons: "Terrible bag check before security, very long and disorganized"
Pros: "Got the exit row (great)!"

Pros: "Barcelona airport is beautiful. The Chechen in staff was helpful and arranged wheelchair assistance for all legs of my flight"
Cons: "We requested extra leg room seats on the bulkhead. We did not get them which was not a big deal on this leg of the flight but on the flight from Frankfurt to SFO which was 10+ hours, was miserable"
Pros: "The service was outstanding!"
Cons: "Someone stole my phone charger :("
Pros: "Gentle crew"
Cons: "1,5 hours delay again"
Pros: "Breakfast & ease of boarding."
Cons: "Business class with normal seats and empty seat in the middle is not the same."
Cons: "Weather delay caused us (and hundreds, or perhaps thousands, of other travelllers) to miss connections. Lufthansa lost our luggage, and to get rid of us, told us they would send it to the hotel we had to check into on account of the overnight delay. They never delivered the luggage, and other employees later told us over the phone that this was not going to happen. The terminal was filled with tired and frustrated travelers, and to make matters worse, the Lufthansa staff were temperamental and condescending to many. At the peak of the chaos, the Lufthansa staff went out on break, while hundreds waited in line for over 8 hours. We expected more - much more - in one of Lufthansa’s own German domestic hubs."
Pros: "family line at check in made boarding a breeze."
Cons: "Two hours to unload my luggage!"
Pros: "The crew was great. It was only a short flight, so we only got a c0okie, but what a cookie!! Big and soft and super tasty. And the coffee was quite good. Germany has never been known for its superb coffee, but this coffee was very good. None of that fakey airline taste to it at all. Could easily be the gourmet coffee you'd serve at home. You DO serve gourmet coffee at home, right? And water and juice and then more water and more juice, all served up by very nice people--not just good service personnel, good people. Baggage pickup was quick and smooth--I travel with my cat, so pickup can be rocky. Nothing to it here."
Cons: "I liked everything, so am leaving this box completely blank. Completely, I tell you!! Stop reading this!!"
Cons: "Leg space"
Pros: "Great staff"
Cons: "small seat despite being in business class"
Cons: "Delayed flight"
Pros: "The crew was attentive and everything went smoothly. I was able to change my seat."
Pros: "This was our first time flying with Lufthansa and it was our favorite airline so far!! The flight attendants are why our experience was so great, they are so kind and helpful"
Cons: "They charged 40 Euro for baggage. On the charge again? Why this was not on any agreement International flights one baggage suppose to be free"
Cons: "The on board entertainment sucks you need to upgrade"
Cons: "The cabin got a little hot during the night and made it hard to be comfortable. Also, the seats lean pretty far back so I had little room in front of me when the person sitting in front of me leaned their seat all the way back."
Pros: "Timing was on schedule"
Cons: "I had to pay 142 euros for my bags. I'm united Global and never have to pay for my bags. I don't mind a fee, but that was ridiculous!"
Cons: "Not a thing"
Pros: "Not good"
Cons: "Long lines and chaos at counters two hours waiting -- poor hotel provided-- poor food -- so awful. Now I hope we can get home today"
Cons: "Systems were down. And it was chaos getting the boarding passes. Nothing was communicated to us until over an hour waiting in line. My daughter was miserable waiting as everyone passed by us, bumping into her and not apologizing."
Pros: "fast, efficient, on time. Friendly crew"
Cons: "It was delayed by 9.5 hours!!!!!"
Pros: "Absolutely the worst flight land and air stewards i havr ever seen. Would never flu with them againrude groun personel"
Cons: "The airplane left Barcelona late and arrived in Frankfurt late. Lufthansa only allowed a 45 minute layover in Frankfurt to catch our connecting flight to Seattle. Because we arrived late - we only had 20 minutes to catch our connecting flight to Seattle. What made this an awful experience is that the flight from Barcelona landed at Gate A - our connecting flight was at Gate Z. This was as about as far away from each gate as you could get. This was over a mile to run in order to catch our connecting flight - I hurt my hamstring during the run. The Lufthansa "assisting agent" in the Frankfurt terminal was less than helpful and laughed when we told her where our connecting gate was. Not only did she laugh but she did not offer any assistance to get us to the gate on time. Prior to our trip - I called Lufthansa and voiced my concern that a 45 minute layover for an international flight was not a lot of time for us to make a connecting flight. The agent I spoke with said that legally - 45 minutes was a standard lay over for Lufthansa and she did not offer me any alternatives. This was not a pleasant experience with Lufthansa and I doubt we will fly with you again."
Pros: "It was a relatively short flight. Boarding went well and efficiently. Flight crew was attentive."
Pros: "Munich airport is convenient and boarding went smoothly"
Cons: "This was an SAA plane, not Lufthansa. I have only had excellent service on Lufthansa. This flight again did not have a functioning entertainment system. I asked for this to be addressed and the SAA crew ignored the request and in the morning looked surprised to find out that several of the TV monitors had not worked at anytime on the flight. Not impressed."
Pros: "Friendly, professional crew!"
Pros: "Crew inside the plane was lovely."
Cons: "The crew woman that assist us in Barcelona Airport counters for the check-in was really rude asking very personal question that I still don't understand why and questioning our passports without any reason. My partner and I felt very uncomfortable and that was a totally unnecessary situation. After that everything was totally great during the flight."
Pros: "It was definitely on time, service is good and it was a very nice flight."
Pros: "Courteous crew. Nice aircraft."
Cons: "My bag is approved carry-on size, and I travel weekly with it. The gate agent forced to check it which was unnecessary and unreasonable."
Pros: "All good"
Cons: "But leg room."
Cons: "Too hot"
Cons: "Umm. It was cancelled due to union workers striking. It was great to spend our last day in Barcelona stressing over whether we could get back home."
Cons: "The touch screen did not work properly"
Pros: "A flight was delayed due to weather conditions and we had to sit in the plane for almost an hour, BUT information sharing from the Capitan was sufficient and on-time. Very good job from pilots. Leg room in economy - I was positively surprised, very decent leg room! Thank you for providing it."
Cons: "I flew economy and all was good and appropriate to the level."
Cons: "A little bit chaotic when they loaded two planes at the same time in a very tight space in Amsterdsm but this was most likey an airport soecific design issue and not a KLM issue. The flight was as good as can be expected fir an international flight. The staff was great"
Cons: "I congratulate the KLM crew!"
Pros: "The crew and the timing were ok"
Cons: "The seats were uncomfortable"
Pros: "The crew was great. The soecial meal request was hadled well despite oversight."
Cons: "Soecial meal request was made in advance but overlooked. Did not mind it so much as eating less is not a bad idea! To err is human."
Pros: "Crew helpful. Food good."
Cons: "Better range of movies please"
Pros: "Slow service."
Cons: "Better communication!"
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"

Cons: "Staff rude and short"
Pros: "Nice staff and no delay"

Pros: "They considered my reguest of vegiterian food."

Pros: "Everything OK"
Pros: "Nice crew pilot food and beverage"
Cons: "No wifi"
Pros: "Crew was very friendly. Nice that wine was served without charge."
Cons: "Announcements from the cockpit were hard to hear. Food has been better in past."
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."
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. KLM #605 from Amsterdam to SFO---please pass the praise to all of them."

Cons: "Boarding was confusing and disorganized"
Pros: "Everything is top notch for an airline company."
Cons: "Nothing.... I enjoyed every moment of the flight."
Pros: "Good services!"
Cons: "Customer service"
Pros: "The aircraft felt clean and quite spacious (decent legroom). Cabin crew was friendly and everything went as expected. Bonus points for the Beemster cheese sandwich (I was totally disappointed when they served the food, but more than pleasantly surprised by the quality of the cheese - I even bought some afterwards, from the Albert Heijn just outside the security area)."
Cons: "Very odd queue separation at boarding. Passengers were divided in 5 lanes, depending on their seating area withing the plane (for a more efficient boarding, I presume) but, by the time we all got to the actual aircraft, we formed another queue in the boarding bridge so it didn't feel like any time was saved or anything."
Cons: "Our total flight time was about 17 hours - MAD- AMS-LAX. My husband and I both have an internationally approved carry on luggages with us. When we checked in - they asked us to both check in our carry on luggage. The reason why is because they said they don’t think they have enough space for our carry ons. I told the crew member checking us in that other people that was checking in with the same hand carry size luggage with us had no problems taking it with them. For being about to be on a 17 HOUR FLIGHT we should be ALLOWED to have our carry ons with us! We take carry ons for that reason! I had to argue and prove my case to the crew member to atleast keep 1 carry on with us. I thought that was an UNACCEPTABLE reason for us to check in a carry on luggage when we had a 17 hour travel time ahead of us. Not a happy costumer here."
Cons: "The cabin crew was racist. She told me to move back from an empty seat just because she wanted one of the guys ( from her country ) to set on it! Very rude and racist."
Cons: "They have mabaged to lost my luggage"
Pros: "Really friendly staff. Great service"
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."
Cons: "Bit cramped for space"
Pros: "The flight crew was nice. Plane departed/arrived on time."
Cons: "I paid €60 extra to sit in the emergency door seat to get more leg room but once.i was in the plane learned for more leg room I accepted a smaller seat next to a bathroom and no entertainment. I could not store my belongings near me. No power outlet to charge my devices for my own entertainment on a 7 hour flight. Dealing with constant traffic for the bathroom. I sat in the middle seat between two hours other men. It was a constant struggle arm space. After 7hours in the air I could not wait to get off the plane. If I didn't actually pay an extra €60 for the seat I may not feel bad but I feel like I might have been better off without paying for the "upgrade""
Pros: "Flight crew; legroom even in cheap seats."
Cons: "Exceptionally unhelpful customer service when asking about extra kilos/bags. Just quoted the online info back at us. We simply wanted to know how much would be charged if the bag was 1-2kgs overweight. We could not get a straight answer, just quoted the unclear company policy. Extremely frustrating and annoying. KLM offer a superior flight experience - it is a shame their terrestrial customer servic does not match it!"
Pros: "The food was excelent"
Cons: "I have to pay to pay a little more confort"
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."
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."
Cons: "Old airplane with not really comfy seats. No outlets for charging devices. Very old entertainment screen."
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: "They were awesome."
Pros: "Fortunately, the plane was not full, so people could spread out a bit to create extra room. The food was really good! (surprisingly)."
Cons: "KLM's new configuration for this type of plane made the seats even narrower than before. While leg room was reasonable, the 3 abreast seating meant a lot of discomfort, especially in the row right in front of the restroom."
Pros: "Same as above"
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: "Spacious cabins, friendly service"
Cons: "Because of slow boarding process flight was delayed by 15 minutes. I had short connection in Amsterdam."
Cons: "This airline charges for everything, and after you pay once, they try to charge you again, and again, and again (four different people tried to charge me 4 different times for my two checked bags). And they lost the record of my payment, so I had to show 4 times the Amex receipt showing that I had paid before. It took 45 minutes and 4 non receptive agents for me to get my luggage checked. British Airways is significantly better."
Pros: "The sear was messy they didn't clean it it was full of pieces of bread."
Cons: "boarding the flight on time instead of delaying it two times... and also putting the information at the flight information screen if I haven't gone to ask to the airport information stand I would never know the flight departure gate that was at the complete opposite side of the airport of were the initial flight was going to depart."
Cons: "2 hours delays from LAX to CDG then additional two hours delay from CDG to CAI, this is disappointing"
Cons: "tout est à revoir !"
Pros: "Not much, seats are super uncomfortable"
Cons: "Better code sharing with KLM"
Cons: "No leg room at all, cant believe those seats met legal standard. The plane smelled, boarding was a nightmare because too many people had big bags. An announcement had been madd that vags would be collected, but obviously were not."
Cons: "boarding groups were not adhered to and those in a lower boarding group often boarded well after those in later boarding groups."
Cons: "It was a great flight can’t think of anything"
Pros: "Good food and crew"
Cons: "Plane was old and seats were super tiny. Even an average guy would be uncomfortable in it. Can’t sit in one spot for longer than 15 min without getting sore."
Pros: "The transfer times were excellent"
Pros: "Crew was very nice and the food was excellent."
Pros: "The flight crew on the flight was amazing. Went beyond basic needs and requirements."
Pros: "The crew was very careful"
Pros: "On time, staff was nice."
Cons: "Not many options and not even a glass of champagne. That’s a minimal requirement. No sparkling water. Just very limited"
Pros: "I did like Flying with Delta and Air France but not with Ukrainian airlines (when booking , it should tell you what airlines will be used , to make a better selection )"
Cons: "When I purchased my flight ticket , I purchased with a checked bag (23 kg /50 #) how ever ( who will fly to Ukraine with a 10kg suitcase) I booked for a KLM flight , they used (partener airlines ) when I arrived to LA I flew with Delta , they checked my Suitcase at no cost all the way to my final destinations , that was expected ! When I was going to return , they made me payed 120 dollars ( in Kiev , Ukraine (UIA) , I was very disappointed and I really will love an explanation about all this !"
Cons: "Flight was delayed by at least an hour leaving Paris - a regular situation I experienced with AF."

Cons: "I didn't really use the in flight entertainment - the usual movies, tv etc"
Pros: "Good selection of movies"
Cons: "No space for legs. No food (just snacks). Very high temperature inside the aircraft. Flight delayed by 45 minutes."
Pros: "SFO - CDG (Air France) was a great journey in all respects. But the one major reason for that was, the middle seat was empty. I was so fresh after the journey, would definitely recommend this flight to anyone."
Cons: "The flight was delayed by atleast 45 mins and therefore had to rush at the CDG airport to catch the next flight."
Pros: "The cabin crew was super patient and accommodating of the passengers."
Cons: "Cramped quarters"
Pros: "Everything except the seat. Service ("would you care for a drink/beverage?") could be better."
Cons: "I paid for a"premium" seat on one of the emergency exit rows for the extra legroom. This was next to a galley. The seat itself was no more than 18" wide (NO EXAGGERATION!!) if not less. I had to sit on an angle (one butt cheek at a time) for 9 yours. I do not have a big butt either. This seat should have been a discounted seat, not a premium seat. I am so angry about this, I will NEVER fly Air France again."
Pros: "Food was good and again, staff were friendly and professional. Flight was on time and efficient dis-embark mentioned."
Cons: "Slight issue with headphone connection, was not the only passenger."
Pros: "Enjoyed my food, especially tasty for airplan fare!"

Pros: "I like the service. They caring and give snacks, comfort and overall"
Cons: "None. I like everything"
Pros: "We got to the desk to check in and there was one person being served in front of us. He finished with him, turned and left the area through the dooor. No one came to help us for 15 minutes. Then they came out to answer the phone and said we were 10 minutes past the cut off and we could not fly."
Cons: "Staff just walked away while we were in line, the rudeness and mean attitude, they blamed us for being too late after ignoring us and made us late, they didn't offer an alternative flight until we asked. Overall, horrible customer service. Never been treated so rudely by people in the airlines industry in my entire 42 years of flying!"
Pros: "Boarding for BUsiness class was fine. Seating was cramped."
Cons: "As I said in my rating, seating was cramped. Food was mediocre. Crew was pleasant."

Cons: "I was asked to change my seat repeatedly"
Pros: "The crew, the service, the food and beverages"
Cons: "The 3 hours delay"
Pros: "Staff was nice"
Cons: "Very cramped. Poor leg room also with.metal bars under seats that further. Limited foot room. Terrible options in movies. The seats in front of us reclined so far that I couldn’t do anything but stare at the back of the seat anyway."
Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "Window pane was broken on my side and I couldn't shut it down. As it was a day flight the sun heated my skin badly"
Cons: "Cramped, no cabin bag space, late departure with no communication and lost checked luggage. Not a great Air France experience."
Pros: "Got pillow, blanket, headphone and eye cover"

Pros: "Crew very professional and nice food Boarding process well organized"
Cons: "Poor seat comfort in business class and no entertainment for a flight lasting more than 1h"
Pros: "Priority boarding"
Cons: "Premium economy seats do not recline, only slouch. One of our 2 seats wouldn't slouch more than half way. The entertainment options are extremely sparse and the screens are 4:3 ratio, tiny, and of such poor quality that they look like laptop monitors from 1999."
Cons: "The food: asked for vegetarian but got incipit vegan... Mostly rice with coconut milk"
Pros: "the Airline"
Cons: "The Airport, Security, Boarder control."
Pros: "On time...comfortable, clean, newish A321...good leg room...friendly crew...pain au chocolat for breakfast"
Pros: "No issues, quick trip, friendly staff, comfortable ride..."
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Plane late departing allegedly because of cleaning the plane, but why was the cleaning done that late? Also, ground crew remarkably uninformed about what was going on in the plane. Poor communication between plane and ground crew. No explanation from pilot as to continuing reason for delay even after we boarded. Departure time, 1.00 pm, boarded at 1.10, actual departure time 1.45, causing me to almost miss my connection and definitely causing my bags to miss the connection."
Cons: "Bording far away, got my cabin luggage and everyone elses into the cellar because ¨it didn´t fit in the plane¨. There was plenty of room, I had breakable stuff in my luggage, didn´t get the chance to choose. No entertainment AT ALL. Confort: no leg space at all. Not an AirFrance plane, subcontracted. Lousy food."
Pros: "It was a short flight."
Cons: "Seat to seat space OK for anyone under 4 ft tall. Pressed intoth seat framein front, I couldn't even turn or get my feet under the seat to extend."
Pros: "I like the service of AF"
Cons: "Late...delayed from algiers"
Pros: "There were 4 of us flying from Atlanta, there was a great amount of leg room, tvs were nice, remote control for the tv fit into the seat, the way the plane was laid out, the 4 of us sat in a middle row, which meant no window seat (which my sister was disappointed), dinner options were great, wine was complementary"
Cons: "My only problem was that there wasn't any air flow and until someone told them how hot they think it is, it was a very sweaty situation. I couldn't sleep because of how hot it was and I didn't think to tell the crew because I didn't know they would care."
Pros: "Kind, courteous, attentive crew. Smooth flight."
Pros: "Same as above, the crew was very friendly and the food was great."
Cons: "Seating was cramped and uncomfortable for a tall person."
Pros: "Boarding was efficient, the flight was on schedule, crew was nice."
Cons: "The temperature for this leg of the trip seemed very cold. I wore 2 sweaters & a jacket plus the blanket. Hard to rate entertainment (I wasn't aware of any)."
