Airline reviews

Pros: "The cre was really nice and very attentive."
Cons: "The flight left the gate an hour late without giving us any explanation, I missed my connecting flight. The airline did offer a hotel to stay in, but no other apology or explanation was given to about 15 of us who missed a connecting flight."

Pros: "The crew was really nice and very attentive."

Pros: "On time departure and arrival. Hard working crew members."
Cons: "No slippers for long flights."

Cons: "maybe they can offer more snacks on the plain"

Cons: "The vegetarian option for breakfast was a stale waffle with apple compote. Inedible."

Pros: "Uneventful flight. Baby in next row only cried intermittently"
Cons: "Please place crying babies in a sound-proof compartment"

Pros: "Flight was uneventful, left on time. Chocolate cake was delicious."
Cons: "I would have liked rear and forward camera live feed to show actual flight"

Pros: "Amazing experience. Pinnacle of customer service"

Cons: "Refund my ticket"

Cons: "Great"

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "WC size (too small) and location. Other airlines such as Lufthansa (NYC - Munich) do way better job in this category ( I believe Lufthansa aircraft was either A330 or 340)"

Pros: "Food was good and so was the crew, entertainment was better than expected."
Cons: "Obviously the seat could have been roomier but still good."

Cons: "The 14 hour flight lacked wifi access and there was no sense of importance to investigate by the crew. In an era when downtime is utilized to stay ahead of work, strong wifi is one of the most crucial requirements for me to elect an airline. Even if all else is good, poor wifi is a deal killer."

Pros: "Service and entertainment."
Cons: "Food."

Cons: "Took long time to provide food & water."

Pros: "New plane and Q suite was excellent"
Cons: "The AVML selection could be better"

Cons: "Narrow 2x2 sleeper seats are really narrow and feel much too close to one another. ."

Pros: "The cabin crew was fantastic and made the experience very positive."

Pros: "all are nice"
Cons: "nothing but avoid bread"

Pros: "The flight from Doha to Beirut was not fully booked, we could move easily."
Cons: "I have requested seafood for my meals. Unfortunately I was told that no such request was mentioned on the list as special meal. Overall the food was okay, we had 2 small pieces of beef in one meal, the two salads has no taste and the sandwich was too salty. A passenger who sat next to my husband snored all the time and leaned a bit over my husband as he was heavy."

Cons: "There was not enough tome to catch my connecting flight and I had to stay in the airport an additional 6 hours and had to stay the night in the hotel and then get to Portland on another airline 21 hours later than planned."

Pros: "Never spending too long waiting for anything."
Cons: "More realistic options to upgrade. Example I can board a train in London and upgrade to first class for £20 to Edinburgh. If you have a coach class or business class empty. Have capacity to feed extra or not. Last minute upgrades can be both a revenue stream and another option to further satisfy some customers. Particularly older generations that can afford and would fund such a win win appealing."

Pros: "Flight schedule in time."

Pros: "It was exellent but long flight keep it up!"
Cons: "Everything was above avarage"

Cons: "going with RJ in the first leg"

Pros: "QA is really a five starts company , and I enjoy the trip always with qatar airways"

Cons: "The seats were very close together. With the tray folded out it was right against me without being extended. Leg room was cramped."

Cons: "The seats were particularly narrow and uncomfortable on this flight. Quality of food used to be better."

Pros: "Comfort of the seat/bed"

Pros: "The airline stewardesses were Fabulous! Especially one from Doha to Cape Town. Food was good and more than enough to eat. I was impressed by the scheduled meals and drink offers , very important for a dietetic"
Cons: "No leg room, can't stretch your legs properly so my bad knee was in pain"

Cons: "I did not like the fact that on now 3 flights I have lost miles, as on every flight I have tried to sign on as a member or frequent flyer and on all flights, there were no entry forms. This is also after my attempt to complete one on line, which I have had no response to."

Pros: "Airport staff were friendly, Flight crew were good. I was in an exit row so I can't comment much about normal economy, but my legroom was fine. lots of movies to choose from. Deplaned onto a bus, that took us right to the Transfer Security which saved me a recently long walk."

Cons: "Difficult boarding procedure."

Pros: "everything!"

Cons: "Ran out of meal options in both flights"

Pros: "Boarding experience was very good. Crew were attentive for the most part."
Cons: "I get the whole more leg room argument, but sitting on a piece of plastic with almost no padding for 14 hours is nothing but torture! Food was average at best."

Pros: "I liked the food and the entertainment ."
Cons: "My seat was broken so I sat up right for 16 hours. To top it off I needed to use the toilet REALLY bad but was denied even though we were SITTING on the runway for 20 mins. When I FINALLY get to use the toilet, after a smaller Asian girl and a taller Indian girl were getting bags of blankets out of, I leave a WOODEN CLIPBOARD full of VERY important papers that will cost me inside. Yet when I call to retrieve them they are "nowhere to be found" so you're telling me out of those 2 women, the Indian gentleman, the black woman & the other Asian woman back there didn't notice a clipboard when I was the only person back there trying to use the toilet or they simply threw a wooden and metal clipboard away ?? With what was clearly paperwork clipped onto it ? The girl at the service desk of Qatar airways claims to have looked herself. But she was rushing me off of the phone so I don't feel like she remotely cared even a little. I am PAST unhappy. So thank you for throwing my paperwork away I know for sure was left behind. Very thorough team."

Pros: "bathrooms had liquid on the floor sloshing around from about 1 hr after take off. Flight attendants need a disposable towel to put down. Nasty bathroom are not pleasant."
Cons: "i was blessed with 3 seats in a row. Had trouble lying down because the arm rests don't go up all the way. The seat belt connectors were not recessed, so they poked me in the side. The movie selection was only so - so. See the selection from Singapore airlines if you want to see a good example. I have many food allergies - for the sweet & savory snacks, the ingredients are in Latin - like a place holder ready for when they get the real words to put there. e.g. dolorem ipsum ..."

Cons: "The entertainment system did not work properly"

Pros: "Very friendly staff, prompt service, smooth boarding, clean cabin."

Cons: "Me"

Pros: "Everything was excellent."

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

Pros: "No one gave me food. I pressed the button to request services, and had to wait for two hours until someone finally came and get me a drink (the flight was about 3 hours long). This was the worst flight experience that I ever had. Very bad."

Pros: "Boarding and Crew are excellent toilets are clean Gluten Free meals are available, that's a big plus"
Cons: "Lots of movies to choose from however I felt the choices were similar in a way! ( Example: you'll find the Drama movies are almost the same as the Romantic movies or the Comedy movies)"

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

Pros: "Breakfast portions were too small, and choices were not great. Boarding procedures were a little chaotic due to small space, and ground staff was not very polite when ordering passengers to board."

Pros: "Everything is really amazing about UAE, service, amenities, entertainment options, leg room."
Cons: "Before the plan even took off for our 14+ hour flight I could tell the seat was uncomfortable, and it was going to be an issue. I don't know why this would be overlooked, as everything else was best in class, but it made for a fairly uncomfortable experience."

Pros: "Javier the flight attendant was so welcoming and attentive. Flight got l fit late, but arrived on time. Service was efficient and respectful. Was not as crowded as prior flight and was able to eat the meal"
Cons: "Time of flight really sucked. 4:00 AM departure meant arriving at 1.00 AM. Tough way to start a day"

Cons: "They took my scarf and it was crazy cold in New York. Then they wouldn't let me use the bathroom yet it took almost an hour to land. Ridiculous. I was in 81D. I hope they found my scarf."

Pros: "Emirates flight was fine. Problem was booking a South African Airways codebase flight on Kayak. Neither SAA or Emerates were able to look up our booking reference and so we did not get seat assignments until the airport."
Cons: "Codebase flights and no one looking as us as customers."

Pros: "Helpful staff"
Cons: "All power sockets iny row did not work so I asked the crew to plug my phone to charge in business class. My TV screen was loose and my seat was broken and kept reclining in its own. The seat next to me had a broken tray that was falling apart. Overall very disappointed with the quality of the plane with such expensive flights."

Pros: "I flew from Orlando DL to Dubai ,and from Dubai to cape town and both flight I was selected to seat on the middle seat,f that happens on my return flights to Orlando fl ,I will never fly emirates again"

Pros: "The flight crew we're fine and helpful if you needed something."

Pros: "Flying on Emirates is a treat. The food is delicious, the staff is friendly and professional, and a long journey becomes a pleasant adventure."

Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "Screaming kids the entire 14 hours. The staff should have at least spoke to the family and kindly asked for them to take care of calming the child down. Instead, he screamed the entire flight and did as he pleased, with no regard to any of the customers on the flight."

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: "On time and cheap flight"

Pros: "From the top to the bottom, everything was excellent except for..."
Cons: "...the boarding, which was somewhat chaotic. An announcement was repeatedly made that the final boarding call for the flight had been issued, and suddenly the entire assembly of passengers waiting before the gate stood up en masse and moved toward the gate, where we ended up standing for twenty or so minutes while the passengers were boarded in sequence according to seat assignment. I'm certain that Emirates has a protocol for gate announcements, but one of their employees certainly didn't know what it was."

Cons: "Before the flight landed and before an announcement was made to bring seats upright, I was repeatedly poked by a crew member to wake up. This was not necessary since we were not close to landing. Very rude and uncomfortable."

Pros: "Everything is wonderful"

Cons: "Check in at he Jeddah Hajj terminal is chaotic"

Pros: "I flew from Nairobi to Dubai and then to New York. Very pleasant crew, beautiful plane inside and out, excellent food in the plane. Overall a very pleasant experience. Also the Airbus 380 is just superb. Such a big bird that one."
Cons: "I am personally opposed to entertainment. I see it as the devil and the world's substitute for true joy that is only found in God as he is revealed in Jesus Christ. So it is sad for me to see all the entertainment centered culture. It shows itself very much in the plane. Everyone with a screen infront of them to keep them entertained. Headphones to cut you off from the fellow next to you. Some very rotten movies on there too."

Cons: "That there were no WiFi on the flight."

Pros: "Everything was perfect"
Cons: "nothing, all was perfect"

Pros: "The crew was not amazing, it was okay The cabin was clean. Food was dog food. The seat was uncomfortable but no different from other airplanes of other airlines. Entertainment (if the selection of senseless movies could be called that) was okay to boring."

Cons: "The plane was uncomfortably warm throughout the (long!) flight, which made it difficult to get any rest."

Cons: "it was late to arive"

Pros: "The staff are friendly the food is great and their are lots of options, there is nothing to buy, everything is included in your ticket price (entertainment, games, movies, food, snacks, drinks, including alcohol) as well as a complementary travel bag with a sleeping eye mask, slippers and toothbrush and toothpaste. I couldn't be happier. I will seek out Turkish Airlines now every time I fly!"
Cons: "nothing, it was the best flying experience I have ever had!"

Pros: "Timing of the flight."
Cons: "I have used this same flight 6 times and only the first time was good. The others were getting bad every time. The service is very poor. The food is not good. You can not say you are out of pasta when you said you will serv it. Flight attendants really are not friendly."

Pros: "Always love THY's customer service!"

Pros: "I eventually arrived at the destination."
Cons: "Difficult to communicate with cabin crew due to lack of English. Flight was delayed by 1 hour. General atmosphere on plane was chaotic I think due to the small plane and length of flight as large numbers of people needed to use toilets."

Cons: "Employees didnt look or act very welcoming. Very little food."

Pros: "The variety of films on show was decent"

Pros: "I liked Sofia airport personnel friendliness"
Cons: "No entertainment system, flight attendants are not very friendly."

Pros: "Great food and great service by crew. On time. Good aircraft. Good connection times."
Cons: "With the high level of noise, I prefer movies with subtitles/CC. There were only a handful of such movies on the flight.

Pros: "Everything was great!"

Pros: "Customer service by the crew"
Cons: "Lufthansa still charges full price like usual, but on a 8+ hour flight to serve a cat size meal of pasta soaked in some pesto sauce is unacceptable! Thank god I had lunch at Frankfurt before departure! Covid-19 should not be an excuse for lack of services! I work for a company which falls into the Essential business category and despite the pandemic we NEVER EVER compromised with the top quality of our product! I am so dissatisfied with Lufthansa and what they have become, pale shadow of a great company, very sad...."

Pros: "Kayak would not allow me to change the ticket - referred me to FlyUs. Horrible customer service. I needed to return on Sat Jun 15 not Sun Jun 16. Would not give refund (i agreed to that when buying) but would not refund the tax, which i feel legally they have to do."
Cons: "Won't be using FlyUs or Kayak again for future purchases. Will go to the airlines directly. Too much red tape and horrible customer service for me to do this anymore. I fly a lot and have over 20,000 miles with Kayak, but those days are over."

Pros: "everything from the boarding and check-in process to in flight comfort."

Pros: "The problem was with the booking, cancelled flights- under stable- but nobody willing to make it right. Flights still screwed up"

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."

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: "Love Lufthansa"

Pros: "Crew."
Cons: "Kosher food ordered was not satisfactory: meat too dry and compressed. I couldn't eat that. Overall Kosher meal was poor quality. Disappointing."

Pros: "When it comes to traveling economy (prob 1st class too) , Lufthansa is the best . I have not been on a better airline thus far , and I feel like I've tried most of them. They are great for all flights , but especially long flights. The only airline where flying 12 hrs isn't a horrible experience ! I've used them more than once , and they are always great! Keep up the good work ."

Pros: "The flight was operated by Lufthansa. There was a training flight attendant who exceeded the expectations."
Cons: "N/A"

Cons: "Business Class Seats, same as economy. Middle seats left empty but this doesn't make up for uncomfortable, barely reclinable, narrow seats. Had ardered a special meal and was served the same meal on both legs of my flight from Sofia to London."

Pros: "Service, comfort"

Pros: "Crew was great. Food was good."

Pros: "Perfect"

Pros: "All the staff was very friendly and helpful."

Pros: "great service! right on time! very polite staff! will fly with them again!"

Pros: "I will chose Lufthansa every time I will go to Europe with my family.I will recommend their service to all our friends.Thank you for making this travel time wonderful!!!!! Vassilka"

Pros: "The Lufthansa flight was great. The food and drinks for 1 hr and 45 min was satisfactory. The airplane was clean and crew was friendly. Too bad only 10% of the flight was gone by Lufthansa. The rest was done by United Airlines. The airplane was new and clean, the crew was friendly as well.The food at UA was so cheap it is a shame. On the domestic leg they give you 5 fools fish or crackers and soft drinks for 4 hrs flight. At the same time each and every passenger was asked personally if he or she will buy breakfast making the person feel guilty if not buying breakfast."
Cons: "Lufthansa is good. UA food is cheap and not enough on the Trans Atlantick flight and hard liquor is not free. On the domestic flight they do not give you food even if the flight is early in the morning and 4 hrs long. That is a shame. Moreover they try to sale you a breakfast package that is design not to get spoiled for three months. The nutrition value of that package is zero even I believe it is bad for you. This is only in the USA. It is a shame how our Airlines treate the American passengers."

Cons: "The touch screen did not work properly"

Pros: "The seats were so comfortable"

Pros: "Boarding was efficient and the crew were nice."
Cons: "the seating is horrible. it was the tightest seating I've ever experienced."

Pros: "Service and crew amazing friendly and went out of the way to Make u feel special even the pilots gave updates thru out the flight"
Cons: "Not being to help on the ground in Copenhagen with delta issues"

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

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"

Cons: "Flight got delayed 30 minutes"

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: "Checkin 1a at Schiphol had long lines, and no seperate counters for just bag drop. My family and I had to wait for 50 mins, to do a bag drop which in,y lasted 1 min! Flight was delayed, without proper announcements."
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: "One crew member was very good but all were not very available or checking on people. I had a seat that I purchased and it was very hard to recline I only found out that it did if fact recline it the last hour to hour and a half of the trip! It was a difficult push back to get it to recline"
Cons: "If I knew how to recline my seat earlier. I did try several times"

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

Cons: "No downsides at all"

Pros: "Good food, friendly service"
Cons: "More trash pickup; only one round of beverage service"

Pros: "They considered my reguest of vegiterian food."
Cons: "I have no complaints."

Cons: "Not enough leg room"

Pros: "Very pleasant, professional crew"
Cons: "Very slow check in. Mainly because other passengers obviously don't read instructions re: weight/contents of cabin bags etc. Would be helpful if there was additional staff to deal with them away from check in desk. This would mean that others did not have to queue for 25 minutes because the check in girls also had to deal with them"

Cons: "Still waiting to board after missing this connection had to be booked on another airline"

Cons: "Services was pretty weird .. Perse or crew Leader was ok But the assistent Young one was Really bad.. aptitud and not friendly at all."

Cons: "Flight departed 35 minutes late"

Cons: "KLM lost my luggage during the layover. My luggage didn't arrive even after the next flight to Prague. Customer service wouldn't give me any idea what flight my luggage would arrive on, nor would they tell me what time my luggage might be delivered to me."

Pros: "She was cheerful and genuine. I have dietary restrictions but was unable to preorder a meal. She went out of her way to find an available meal for me. I also saw her bring other passengers extra snacks and drinks."
Cons: "Cramped seating."

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

Pros: "I enjoyed the attention to detail and comfort. Helped to make the flight easier to handle."

Pros: "Good service onboard, good food. On time."

Cons: "Delay can occur sometimes but it wiuld be better to be explained its reason and the estimated time for boarding. The customer service at CDG airport was the worst ever and all people standing boarding desk were useless without any mind what they are doing."

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

Pros: "Flight crew was fine. Food was good."
Cons: "Checking in was extensive for unaccompanied minor. But gate crew was very unnattentuve and though we showed up as first in line, they did not focus, and kept saying to wait. Ultimately our son was last person on the plane."

Cons: "Can nit find much fault fir a short run!"

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

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

Cons: "KLM can't seem to figure out the order of boarding the plane. Should be business - priority - everyone else. Instead they do priority first, and that's usually two-thirds of the passengers. Also, really tired of the fake business class on these flights..."

Pros: "Catering is ok"
Cons: "Seats comfort really old school"

Pros: "That we didn't crash"
Cons: "Being delayed and missing my connecting flight. No entertainment onboard (for hours and hours)."
