Pros: "The entertainment and refreshments on the flight was satisfactory."
Cons: "The sanitation on the flight was disgusting. Trash everhwre, tray tables with stains on them from the previous passengers, stains on the seat cushions, dirty blankets that had stains on them, the bathrooms were foul smelling with fluids on the floors. I am never EVER FLYING TURKISH AIRLINES AGAIN."
Pros: "The staff is awesome and made the trip comfortable. I aldo liked how quickly we boarded!"

Cons: "It was too hot inside, the air was on but not very high maybe 76-78. Could not sleep because it was so uncomfortably warm"

Pros: "Crew, entertainment, boarding"

Cons: "As above"
Cons: "It was very hot on the plane."
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"
Cons: "How come a Business Class doesn't have sleeping masks? Unbelievable."
Pros: "outstanding service, flight attendants are superb"
Cons: "The layover was too long."
Pros: "The Transfer desk granted our request to switch our flight from Istanbul to Chicago to Istanbul to Los Angeles. A meeting that I had initially scheduled in Chicago was cancelled and would have meant an extra day of travel and hotel stay. By allowing us to go directly to LAX we got home a day earlier and didn't have the hassle of going through customs, checking in & out of a hotel and going through another set of security checks with all our bags. Additionally, we had great service, food and entertainment. Especially liked the wifi that allowed me to read and send emails, texts and do some work."
Cons: "Even though they had at least an hour to transfer the bags from the Chicago flight and put it on the LAX flight, the bags didn't make it and they didn't find them for about 24 hours but did deliver them to our home at 1:45 AM (@37 hours after arriving)"
Pros: "Turkish canceled my return because I had the bad luck to miss the conection flight , I had to buy another ticket in another airline and even that they fined me"
Cons: "Crew didnt act like they liked their job"
Pros: "I like the good service and the food"
Pros: "Quality experience all the way around"
Cons: "in a previous email we explained that by the time we arrived at the gate in Sao Paulo, the airline refused our boarding the plane and said only "we don't like Kayak". We never boarded the plane and there was a credit to our credit card, so why are you asking how our flight went?"
Pros: "Liked the strong team from the Captain's handling of plane to the cabin crew service and food."
Cons: "Confusion in Istanbul about connecting flights due to Turkish time change."
Pros: "When we arrived at the gate we were told they did not have us in the system and the one gate attendant told us that the airline did not like Kayak. We were then forced to stay in the airport hotel at a rate of almost $200.00 as we were unable to secure a flight on a different airline until the next day"
Pros: "The food.."
Cons: "That the anytime snacks that was offered was not available for passengers"
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: "I have been flying with Turkish Airline for over 24 years. And they are the best ever. If they have flights to my destination I sure fly with them."

Cons: "the food was ok, they played one movie for everyone to watch and our screen was not the best, small seats with no leg room, filthy greasy window i had to clean to look out of."
Pros: "everything. it's really a good option!"
Cons: "nothing really"
Pros: "The extra security measure at IST gave us peace of mind given the travel warning the US had used involving Turkey. Second, the quality and quantity of food was fantastic and more than we've ever experienced in any airline."
Cons: "There was a large group of young people who were disruptive the entire flight from Istanbul to Chicago. It did not appear that their adult chaperones were doing anything to control them, nor did we see the flight crew intervene."
Pros: "Very kind and helpful crew members Lots of stuff provided: drinks, food, kits etc"
Cons: "No leg space for tall people, alas"
Pros: "Crew and food were quite good"
Cons: "Leg room was quite tight on plane the carry on bag limit was too restrictive at 8kg"

Pros: "Free food and movies for a 1.5 hour flight, amazing!!"
Pros: "The crew on this flight were excellent professional and friendly. They were also very patient. The best part of the trip."
Cons: "The food needs major improvement. What has happened to Lufthansa??? Other people on other flights with Lufthansa complain bitterly about the food. It has gone down hill. People should not be dreaming of Virgin Atlantic food while on a flight with Lufthansa!"

Cons: "Really great flight. Can’t say enough about it."
Cons: "More space on economy for long flights."

Pros: "Crew was attentive and friendly."

Pros: "Smooth. No turbulence. On time."
Pros: "Food was good & they served a full meal!"
Cons: "Crew appeared annoyed with everyone. No entertainment provided."
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: "Flight left and arrived on-time. Flight attendents were pleasant and helpful. Food portions and choices were good, and Lufthansa is always generous with drinks. Good value for money on Lufthansa."
Cons: "Boarding was chaotic, as clear instructions were not given about which group was boarding when and where to line up. Also Lufthansa did not do a good job managing carry-on bags, so that it took way too long to load people and many bags were left over once overhead bins were full. Seating area is cramped in economy."
Cons: "Flight was 45 minutes late arriving, causing me to miss my connection to Lufthansa and forcing reroute of whole trip."
Pros: "Lufthansa are excellent. Makes the US carriers look awful in comparison. Good seats, great service, on time, zero complaints."

Pros: "The bathrooms were always clean. The staff curious and attentive, food was ok. Overall very goid"
Pros: "Smooth flight. Fairly good meals. Friendly crew."
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: "The incrediblesmoothness of the flight: the lane to Frankfortwas a dream plane, and the pilots are to be congratulated."
Cons: "The food on Lufthansa is terrible. Many crew members are rude and unaccomodating, even in business class. I will never pick Lufthansa if I have to fly business class again."
Pros: "safely arrived; very pleasant crew"
Cons: "Late departurne and arrived about 45-60 minutes late; having to board on the tarmac rather than directly from the terminal."
Pros: "Flight was smooth and arrived early even though it left 30 minutes late."
Cons: "Lufthansa should schedule more time to make connections."
Pros: "Crew was great."
Cons: "Seats were very uncomfortable, hardly any legroom"
Cons: "Unfortunately the flight was delayed for 6 hours so we had hard time at Boryspil to book another flights to Los Angeles. After talking to 4 different people at cashier booths for an hour, we finely got tickets with Austrian lines to our destination city. I wish that Borispol Airport team could be more prepared(provide more customer service personal) to solve the problems such as a flight delay in order to serve better the passengers in stressful situations."
Pros: "Crew, food"
Cons: "Delay caused by weather"
Pros: "The crew was friendly."
Cons: "We were a little late with boarding. I prefer Lufthansa for travel, but I can think of a ton more, easy to serve, more healthy and delicious menu items. The food smells good, usually, but it isn't that great. The chicken I had was fine, but the side dish (sweet potatoes) wasn't good. The salad had too much radicchio, the soft cheese was too rubbery to cut (spilled my water doing so), the cake wasn't up to German reputation. Also, one flight attendant, got her own suitcase down, at least 5 times, stretching directly above me, with her jacket in my face and never apologizing. My seat wouldn't recline, nor could other peoples. This is why I paid to choose my seat, so I could sleep, more easily but I sat upright the whole time."
Pros: "Clean aircraft, very friendly crew, good food, overall great trip."
Pros: "All the staff were friendly and the complimentary food and drink snacks was lovely."
Cons: "Our flights were delayed both on the way there and back"
Pros: "On time"
Pros: "Firstly, the food was great!"
Pros: "entertainment organized boarding at O'Hare airport"
Cons: "1. I was in economy class. The rows are too close. Passenger in front of me leaned his chair back and the tablet/tv was IN MY FACE. 2. The passenger behind me was trying to move his legs and constantly was pushing my chair. 3. Announcements were not loud enough. Barely heard it."
Pros: "I was upgraded after all the pressure from thehurrricane this was the icing on the cake"
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Entertainment system wasn't working. 11 hour flight. Boring. No seat change available. No reading light, as light controlled by entertainment system. 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: "Crew was very courteous and efficient"
Cons: "Seats were too small. I noticed my neighbor was a fat big woman and she was occupying part of my seat and arm rests so I couldn't move because she was almost on top of me. It was a very unconfortable journey."
Pros: "I liked the entertainment options, beverage service, and leg room."
Cons: "I paid to reserve an upgraded seat. I specifically asked for a window seat and even have a confirmation email saying that I got a window seat (27 A). However, when I checked in, I was assigned a middle seat and the representatives at the ticket counter tried to tell me that was my preference. They tilde me to take it up with customer relations. If I pay $100 for a particular seat, I should get that seat!"
Pros: "See above"
Pros: "I received a surprise upgrade to Business class. The flight crew was very attentive and flight was easy."
Pros: "Cleanliness, entertainment"
Cons: "Food and legrooms have to be the worst in international flights."
Pros: "Food was better than American or Delta."
Cons: "Had a screaming baby during the whole flight. Not Lufthansa's fault though."
Pros: "First time for flying Lufthansa and I rate it higher than Emirates which was my favorite until now. Reasons? Number one, the crew. On top of every detail for a comfortable flight. Ten hours and I didn't sleep at all( never can sleep sitting up) and I think they came by with extra water and juices at least six times. Two hot meals of delicious food, superb snacks available near the galley, and comfortable seats with better than average legroom."
Cons: "Can't think of anything except the length of the flight which can't be helped."
Pros: "All the staff was very friendly and helpful."
Cons: "Terrible leg room."
Pros: "Very friendly staff!"
Cons: "Monitor was very slow and at some moments not working at all (even after restart)"
Pros: "I was rescheduled on another flight improperly"
Cons: "Flight did not take off staff was rude unhelpful I won't use them again"
Pros: "Courteous and professional."
Pros: "Punctual departure and arrival. Crew was professional if not always friendly."
Cons: "The worst food I can recall I have ever experienced on a plane. So bad that I didn't have more than an unfortunate bite from my "dinner" entree. The food was especially noteworthy as the trip over was so good... In the entertainment category, the sports and news line-up only had old soccer games..."
Cons: "My connecting flight was very close in time and even when I told a stewardess while I was exiting the plane, she made no effort to get me any help to arrive at my next gate faster. This resulted in my having to run to my gate after waiting on the long line at customs and I barely made my flight. Had I not been as physically able, I would have missed my flight even at my normal fast-walking pace. This should not have occurred- I should not have to run to my gate from one flight to another especially when I raised this concern to an employee of Lufthansa as well as a customs officer."
Pros: "Smooth Ride Stewardesses"
Cons: "Seats, The website would not let me upgrade to premium seats. I am also a Gold Star Alliance member and thought that I should have been able to have the Premium seating available, especially since there were vacant seating. But it was a great flight. The best airline flight I have had so far."
Pros: "The service"
Pros: "Very professional and courteous staff. I flew Economy and can only imagine what your Business and First Class services would rate. The seats were comfortable and the spacing was generous. Thanks, for an enjoyable experience."
Cons: "We had no complaints and I am confident any concerns would have been immediately addressed."
Cons: "This was a united flight. The personal was not helpful, only in helping me communicate with the airport in Rome to change my flight. I had to pay 97 euros for this change. I am upset and think it is not fair that I need to pay for a problem united had with their flight. I also think star Allience failed as they were not able to resolve the problem with their partner airlines."
Cons: "flight was completely cancelled due to operational issues with the plane. They sent us all on a bus to Stuttgart from Zurich."
Cons: "There was no entertainment service on the flught"
Pros: "This Transavia Airlines is not good at all."

Cons: "Flight got delayed 30 minutes"
Pros: "Pleasant flight"
Cons: "We were delayed & missed our connection"

Cons: "Seat pitch could've been more. At least let us know via Whatsapp that the plane is delayed, or at which belt the bags would come out. This basic info was lacking."
Pros: "Everything was smooth and effortless."
Cons: "Can’t think of anything."
Pros: "The crew was great! The food was also much better than other airlines. And passing out whole bottles of water was much appreciated."
Cons: "not really"

Cons: "Transfer point needs upgrade."
Pros: "Friendly crew! More legroom, good entertainment and food was great! Smooth landings pretty much on time."
Cons: "Boarding could be better"
Pros: "Nothing to mention"
Cons: "Crew was rude when I asked if there was a vegetarian option for the snack. I did request special meals for the trip. Even if they did not have a vegetarian option, they don't need to be rude!! Boarding was ridiculous. we were supposed to form a line and wait. Would have been a lot better if they boarded by seat numbers. Also they made me check in my fairly small and light carry on bag resulting in its contents arriving broken!"
Cons: "Nothing special"
Pros: "The staff tried to help me when it was evident we would not arrive on time"
Cons: "The connecting flight is too short of a time. We were late out of LAX and I missed my connection and had to sit in airport for 5 hours. Missed my grandson’s third birthday party. Just made me sad as Travelled from far to try to make it."

Pros: "Excellent service. A meal , drink and a coffee included which we were not expecting."

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."
Pros: "Good services!"
Pros: "Very friendly crew going out of way to assist in making trip comfortable"
Cons: "Had travelled KLM to Amsterdam on my first flight 27 years ago and the aircrafts are stuck in that age! Lousy seats, poor quality bathrooms, lousy screens, prefer not to fly them"
Pros: "The crew were hardworking, responsive, conscientious and friendly"
Cons: "Really poor entertainment choices esp compared to my inbound AirFrance flight. Boarding was pretty disorganized and late."
Pros: "Premium economy service was good."
Cons: "Inexplicably, our preassigned seats were changed at checkin and we were put in bulkhead. This particular Boeing aircraft is pretty poorly designed. Especially the bulkhead in premium economy."
Cons: "I can't take the flight because i'm not Chilean and I don't have a reembolse or other flight ,... nothing . Finally I take other flight with other company"
Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "Entertainment was dated and poor in function. Our bags were 99 dollars each and we’re both lost and didn’t arrive. I just filed a claim and got rude service saying I should have filed the claim at the airport baggage area but there was not anybody there to do the claim then he agent upstairs said they just spoke to them and they are there and I should have done it there. This was so rude and there is no way to get back into customs area. If we paid 200 for bags I expect them to arrive on time. I’m asking for a refund of the baggage fees."
Pros: "Seats were comfortable"
Cons: "Flight was delayed by 2 hours. Could have gone to Amsterdam and come back in that time"
Cons: "Crowded seating, wake-up for breakfast service two hours before arrival"
Pros: "The cabin crew were good. They explained what the arrangements were for the delayed flight connections"
Cons: "The plane wasn't refueled and so was not ready for take off once the passengers were loaded. The plane had a technical problem when it tried the first take off and so it had to be abandoned. This was alarming.."
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: "The supplied pack of toothpaste/toothbrush"
Cons: "una valija se perdió. Eso desató el descontrol que tiene KLM para seguir el equipaje. No hay como hacer tracking. No hay un teléfono a donde hablar, la web está desactualizada y con información equivocada. Direccionan a usar canales de twitter y facebook que no responden. Primer experiencia en KLM y no pienso nunca más usar esta aerolínea. Llevar el equipaje o resolver un problema sobre valijas es de lo más básico de una aerolínea y no lo hacen."
Pros: "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"
Cons: "Without any explanation the plane I was due to go to Istanbul on at 11.30 was not available. I had to wait for a small plane coming from Edinburgh then wait for it to be emptied of passengers and cleaned. This meant we were over 2 hours late into Istanbul. No explanation or apology. I then missed my next flight in Istanbul and had to purchase another ticket. I cannot believe that air passengers are treated in this way!!! I will follow this up with KLM when I go home from my holiday."
Pros: "Cabin Crew was awesome."
Cons: "Entertainment System was not working and no Non-veg food option in flight."
Pros: "quick and relaxed"

Pros: "I fly delta this was run by KLM they weight all bags delta does not they don't take TSA preach Check. Delta does It was a free for all with check in and getting into plane"
Cons: "See above"
Pros: "Overall very nice flight, even comes with free drink and snack"
Pros: "Having exit aisle made a huge difference in comfort Crew were EXCELLENT"
Cons: "Food was not very good Tasteless and rubbery"
Pros: "KLM Is an impressive flying experience. We enjoyed the comfortable seats, the in-flight entertainment, and the food. The flight attendants are top notch as well."
Cons: "The only complaint I have regarding my most recent flight was the incredibly rude service staff whom we experienced at the front counter at check-in. After a harrowing cab ride to the airport in which our driver continuously ignored my request to follow the GPS insisting that he knew faster shortcuts, we arrived 40 minutes later than intended. Additionally he dropped us off at the wrong terminal such that we finally arrived at the KLM gate an hour later than we had planned. This was especially frustrating as we are traveling with two small children and made every effort to be punctual and leave early to be sure we got there with time to spare. Not the case today. All of that I could deal with, but when we arrived at the KLM counter, and I apologized to the attendant staff member that we were late and explained that our cab driver got lost, she responded by chastising us first in Spanish and then in broken English. She made sure to make it clear to us that it was our fault and we should not blame the Argentinian cabdriver. The cabdriver was not actually Argentinian, but that is totally besides the point. I was totally taken aback to be treated so rudely as a greeting at the airline counter. My wife share the same sentiment. Nothing like this has ever happened to us before. Thank God, every single airport personnel and of course KLM staff member on board was incredibly kind and accommodating of our children subsequent to this. It saved what otherwise could've been a terrible experience."
Cons: "Flight was delayed 4 hours. was not able to make connecting flight in Amsterdam. No flights from Amsterdam to final destination in the US. Lost one full day. Had to stay overnight. What a cluster mess. Will never fly with KLM airlines and would not recommend. Will spend a little extra money and fly on other airlines......very poor, disorganized, and horrendous flight experience. Buyer beware."
Pros: "The rest area"
Cons: "The airport was cold and it should be warmer"
Pros: "The crew and the food were great!"
Cons: "The seats weren’t very comfortable. You could tell the plane was a little dated. There was no WiFi and nowhere to charge your devices."

Pros: "The crew was very friendly."

Pros: "Bag was sent straight to NY although Norwegian screwed it up. Am yet to receive my luggage."
Pros: "crew was wonderful, great food, quick boarding"
Cons: "cant think of anything"
Pros: "The gate reps from CDG to MSP were professionals. The cabin crew on the Delta flight were exceptional! This was not my experience in Copenhagen with the Air France staff, they seemed to be self centered and rude."
Cons: "Delta please make excellence a priority in all areas of customer service. Set high standards for staff so customers know that you appreciate them and are ready for business. The world is at the customer's fingertips, let their first choice be Delta. When their are bad days, customers will understand"
Pros: "The crew was amazingly helpful. My son was having some anxiety and they went out their way to make him comfortable. They were the best!"
Cons: "Booked with my partner. Ended up sitting apart. Not good"
Cons: "Air conditioning too cold. Wasn't offered an evening meal. My luggage went missing and I'm still waiting for it to be delivered."
Pros: "The flight crew on the flight was amazing. Went beyond basic needs and requirements."
Pros: "The staff..the attentions..food."
Cons: "No space for legs. No food (just snacks). Very high temperature inside the aircraft. Flight delayed by 45 minutes."
Cons: "Not much legroom."
Pros: "Liked the transfer"
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."
Cons: "Tiny uncomfortable seats."
Cons: "The food was the worst airline food I have ever been served. I could not eat it. This is very disappointing for an airline like AirFrance which usually serves very good meals."
Cons: "1/ the transfer crew needed 50 mn to enter my son’s visa number in her computer and she almost let us miss our flight 2/ we were separated (party of 3, my son being 5 YEARS OLD) - how can they allow a boarding and expecting my 5 year old to do a 10 hours flight BY HIMSELF???? 3/ no kids menus, even if I had ordered it before 4/ food in general was very mediocre 5/ crew was unprofessional and they acted bored"
Pros: "The airplane was modern, and the crew very good. Nice, service oriented and in general trying to make the flight experience as good as possible."
Cons: "The flight was very late. I lost my connection. My bag was lost and unable to recover it so far (after more than 24 hours). About to initiate the next leg of the trip with no clothes or any idea if my luggage will be recovered."
Cons: "Airplane really old. Cabin configuration economy was in front of economy plus. Just 1 bathroom for economy and economy plus. Economy plus seats old and uncunfuttable ( more than it should be )"
Cons: "Couldn't make the connection....Overall....an aweful experience!"
Pros: "The noise-canceling headset is good."
Cons: "The premium economy seat is not reclined at all. The neighbor's seat is too much flexible. This is a maintenance problem. We report these problems to the crew, though there ignored... I should have chosen an economy class seat."
Pros: "Flight was smooth"
Cons: "The flight was late, real late."
Pros: "This is what happens when you get roped in by a low price."
Cons: "Disorganization which led to not being able to pre-purchase baggage. Then bad info at airport which led to multiple trips through security trying to make weight on a bag that should have been checked but was told didn't need to. Ended up missing flight, having to rebook at full fare and no one knows where the bag that was checked is. STAY AWAY!"
Pros: "Crew was friendly and professional, fresh croissant and hot chocolate on my short flight. As many airlines charge now for any and all food items it was nice to again experience fast and efficient food and beverage service without the tedious hassle of ordering and paying. I’d gladly fly Air France again. First time, but likely not the last."
Cons: "Like all airlines , the seats could use a few more inches of space, even two would be nice."
Cons: "There are always delays. Today it was that internet was down."
Pros: "the food"
Cons: "no room for legs"
Pros: "the Airline"
Cons: "The Airport, Security, Boarder control."
Pros: "Getting there on time despite delay"
Cons: "entertainment had very old media and no recent additions. Crew was not very organized"
Pros: "All crew I interacted with was great, friendly, and helpful."
Cons: "Flight was late. Boarding very slow. Entertainment was ok by today's standards. Each seat had a display, but movie selection was not great. For a French airline I was looking forward to breakfast -- maybe some nice pastries or at least a decent croissant with jam. None such. It was disappointing. Meals were not impressive either, but the complimentary wine was good."
Pros: "Crew was great"
Cons: "Not enough food"
Cons: "Our first leg from Paris was delayed and we missed our flight to Dubrovnik. We then had to hire a car and drive 6 hours to ensure we wouldn't lose a day more of our holiday."
Pros: "I like that they still feed you and provide alcohol for free, even on a 40 min flight (unlike BA)."
Cons: "At one point during the flight I took a video out of my window with my camera, a member of the cabin crew barked at me in French. In bewilderment I asked her in English to repeat herself and she sarcastically repeated what she had said, in French, I asked for her to speak in English (which she had done to me previously on this Paris to London flight) yet again she scolded me in French. I was left absolutely none the wiser and it left a bad taste in my mouth."
Pros: "Panamá airport is a disaster, unorganized and dirty"
Cons: "Panamá airport"
Cons: "Small leg space"
Pros: "I didn't feel cramped in a Window Seat. Two meals were served during the flight. It was nice to get back to being fed something other than skippy snacks on an airline flight."
Cons: "I was ignored over and over again as ice cream, drinks and snacks were offer by the crew. It would have been nice if some would ask me before falling asleep if I wanted to be roused for snacks and desserts. After being on back to back flights of more than 10 hours each it would be considerate for the crew to be aware of my length of travel and to make sure they don't assume my resting my eyes is the same as me being asleep. Even when I was awake it appeared I was being overlooked, ignored and left out of complimentary services I saw other receiving....my bad for not asking to be noticed."
Pros: "Boarding was fast and efficient. Flight attendant staff were friendly and very courteous."
Cons: "Vegetarian food choices are too limited. Snack and beverage availability on long flights like this are too few and far between."
Cons: "Disorganised boarding with people allowed to bring on multiple and oversize bags that by the airlines own admission delayed departure"
Pros: "I liked their seats, I had enough space to get comfortable flying internationally for 14 hours."
Cons: "Just wish they served water a couple times more, because when you're in the plane for the whole day, 2-3 little cups isn't enough."
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)."
Pros: "normal flight"
Cons: "i would prefer little bit more comfort."
Pros: "The flight crew was excellent in accommodating the passengers. One specific flight attendant was very patient in dealing with a continuously demanding passenger by being helpful and firm at the same time; a difficult combination of skills."
Cons: "The ground crew in CDG was very disappointing and unprofessional and very specifically in the luggage area. When I was told that my carry on luggage exceeded the allowed weight I argued that my luggage was weighed in Cairo and that it was less than the 12 Kg allowed weight. The Air France attendant then waved with annoyance to speak with her supervisor. When I approached her supervisor, who was speaking with another Air France employee, she looked annoyed and said just just to to booth #7 or 8 that handles excess luggage issues. My reaction is to avoid traveling through CDG in the future and I will focus on flying with Lufthansa."
Pros: "The air France staff were phenomenal. Very professional and courteous. Almost so courteous you thought it was not genuine (however it was)...by end of the flight they made you want to write a letter on their behalf."
Cons: "Seat didn't recline as much as needed and was no in flight entertainment."
Pros: "Great crew"
Cons: "Very old entertainment system"
Pros: "The crew was very attentive and willing to assist with everything."
Cons: "Booked business to get some needed sleep on the red eye as I'm straight into work today. Babies crying disturbed sleep and bags delayed to boot. Unimpressed."
Cons: "Really old plane with uncomfortable seats and really bad in flight options. The air conditioning was also broken so the entire flight felt hot and muggy, this is on a 12 hour flight!!"
Pros: "Smooth flight without event. On time landing. Efficient deplaning."
Cons: "Newer plane. Seats , entertainment, cabin crew."
Pros: "Good connection in London, very fast."

Cons: "Keep the lights off :)"
Cons: "My window seat didn’t have a window"
Cons: "Only one round of drinks served?"
Cons: "the onboard entertainment is a very old system based on small unpractical screen. Mine was also broken. My meal came, twice, with no cold drinks. I had to call the crew but did not answer all the times. When they came, they brought the wrong drink."
Pros: "Crew very pleasant, professional and friendly."
Cons: "Tired and dated cabin; seats extremely uncomfortable causing severe back pain. In flight entertainment very old fashioned with small low resolution screens."

Pros: "The flight was so delayed I missed my connecting flight to jfk."
Cons: "The flight was so delayed I missed my connecting flight to jfk."

Pros: "Efficient boarding, friendly staff"
Cons: "Very poor movie choice and poor quality screen"
Pros: "We pushed back from the gate about 24 minutes late and arrived at our destination about 38 minutes late. The four-course dinner (Chicken Tikka Masala or Penne Pasta) was good for airline food. The crew was friendly and professional."
Cons: "No USB power ports by the seats."
Pros: "There was a good selection of very different movies to watch. I found four that I wanted to see."
Cons: "There were not enough chairs in the waiting area. There was a long wait, first, just to get on the plane, then, instead of letting us stay in the waiting area, we were all seated, and left waiting for at least an hour, most of that time without explanation, sitting in a stifling plane at the gate, without being allowed to get up and move around. Also, the ratio of carbohydrates to protein in the main meal was way out of kilter. I don't want rice + potatoes + bread + crackers all in one meal, with zero vegetables. The tiny piece of cheese helped."
Pros: "They arrived a few minutes earlier than expected."
Pros: "They upgraded me to business class"
Cons: "I did nit get on time to the flight to Tel Aviv"
Pros: "Funny safety video. Good beer and wine. Lots of movie choices. Never a line to the toilets."
Cons: "Cramped seating area, but I did have an extra seat next to me."
Pros: "The Crew were great"
Cons: "Boarding could have been more efficient"
Cons: "Delays and overbooked flights"
Cons: "We were late to our outbound flight due to our other flight being delayed from weather. We went to the ticket desk area, which was closed and were directed to another help desk. Once at the front the attendent refused to help us and sent us to another desk at the other end of the terminal. After waiting in another long line, the attendent told us we had missed all flights to Edinburgh. There lack of staff and customer service caused us to miss all flights and trains into Edinburgh. On top of that, we were notified our flight back to London would be cancelled because we missed our outbound flight and that she could not provide us with any credits or refunds that we would need to call customer service. We lost the money we spent on our Edinburgh hotel and had no way to get to our vacation."
Pros: "Thank you for your attention and very good service"
Cons: "TV Monitors absolutely obsoletes, very old, bud definition"
Pros: "Nothing to special comparing with other first class"
Cons: "Boarding process was very late, they made us wait in the cold for 10 min before letting us in the plane. The staff was professional but not too friendly and the place is old. When I purchased the ticket it said it was a airbus A380"
Pros: "Staff are friendly, accomodating for an unaccompanied child with me, upgraded me and helped to support the extra baggage needs"
Cons: "Old, dirty planes with bad enterainment systems and mediocre food and drink offerings. With the price of a ticket more than Emirates, KLM and other airlines, always really suprised the overall crappy hardware, infrastructure on planes etc. When can we get a decent plane to fly the long haul flights. And an actual entertainment system like to competitors?"
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "There was an abusive passenger sitting behind me that kicked my chair the entire flight. They were angry that they didn't have more space and that I wanted to have my seat back. I offered to put it up during meal times to make sure they had enough space but that wasn't good enough. The crew knew what was happening and tried to get the other passenger to stop but the passenger persisted. The crew refused to upgrade me even though I had paid for an aisle seat and there were no other aisle seats available for me to move to. I find this service unacceptable. I probably won't be willing to fly BA again as they obviously care more about money than ensuring their customers are comfortable."
Cons: "Was one hour and 45 minutes late leaving Atlanta for London."
Cons: "No wifi on a +11hr flight TV Screen looks horrible. Too old. Didn’t even watch any movie on it. got downgraded from First Class to Business Class because the airline oversold first classs. Shouldn’t happen."
Cons: "I missed this connection and was routed through Dallas instead. I also missed that connection to El Paso."
Cons: "BTW, BA cancelled the flight from Chicago and changed it to AUS->DFW->LON->BOM. While returning, wheel chair assistant left my parents on the midway who can't walk much and don't understand English. This happened at DFW airport. Next time I will think twice to book with this airline."
Pros: "Cabin crew"
Pros: "Welcoming crew"
Cons: "Too warm, one of the seats did not recline fully, very poor choice of entertainment"
Pros: "I'm a regular flier. I'm a British Airways Gold Member and inflight a lot. Best Cabin Crew Hands Down."
Pros: "I thought British Airways was a better airline. I hope they do better job to when I return back to my home next mointh!"
Pros: "Pleasant helpful staff, comfortable, clean seat, good food."
Cons: "Having to pay TWICE for extra item of luggage!! Some delay with boarding"
Pros: "Crew was excellent"
Cons: "Food selection is terrible. Plainer, simpler foods that appeal to more people would be preferred. If you want to attempt to serve 5 course meals, that is fine, But, please have normal backup foods. In fact you would save a lot of money buy not putting seeds and grapes in the salads, buying plain white/wheat rolls with no seeds, and much simpler appetizers/desserts. I saw a lot of food being thrown away. Mine included. If you are trying to force people to buy food before they board, you have succeeded. TV displays and remote were very poor compared to your competitors."
Pros: "Boarding was exceptionally well-handled. Boarding passess/passports were checked prior to entering the boarding area and seating started when people came into the boarding area so passengers were finltering onto the plane immediately without the first calls for priority passengers."
Cons: "Short flight, not much to notice or complain about."
Pros: "What a different experience in relation to last week!"
Pros: "Wonderful customer service and hot meal was a lovely treat!!"
Cons: "No direct communication. Really bad"
Pros: "Very good"
Cons: "Everything was excellent"
Pros: "The crew were quite friendly and very helpful"
Cons: "Flight was late leaving and check-in could have been more organized"
Cons: "They loaded us on the plane only to inform us that we'd be in que for an hour+... not acceptable. They should have delayed loading."
Pros: "Crew were friendly"
Cons: "Noise level when people were trying to sleep; seats not too comfortable"
Pros: "Liked the healthy food and new TV entertainment system."
Cons: "Didn't like that the steward put the spray downwards on the floor before flying. They should spray it upwards. They removed the snacks. I would be prepared to pay an extra £10 for unlimited snacks. They need to clean the toilets every few hours as the flight is 13 hours. By the end of the flight the floor of the toilet was disgusting. The cushion was horrible."
