Pros: "Crew was amazing and very helpful"
Cons: "The wheel chairs was a bit scarce so we had to walk far distances at Dubai airport"
Pros: "Crew was very nice and helpful"
Cons: "Boarding with Nigerians is always difficult"
Cons: "The crew was good, but the attentiveness of the crew on the second leg was amazing"
Pros: "The crew is good."
Cons: "The check-in is a disaster. A F-class passenger is treated as a Y passenger. Luggage limited to 2 pieces, even as GOLD FF, was made to pay US$200 dollars on a ticket of already 3,500 dollars and the price is the same for F-C-Y! The treatment was really commerce, as if the check in gets a commission"
Pros: "Crew was very calm, courtesy, and cheerful."
Cons: "It was my first flight ever. So it was perfect thank you Emirates"
Pros: "Since not enough room in "What could have been better". For as long as my second flight was, from Dubai to Boston, the seats in coach were criminal!!! Way to narrow, especially if sitting next to a large person. Not nearly enough distance to seat in front of you, can't even bend over to reach some-"
Cons: "thing on the floor. The seats do NOT recline enough to be able to relax & get shuteye. It would have been really nice to have a footrest of some type, even busses have those! I am a small person, 5'1'' and 110 lb. Consider not having such a huge gap between 1st class and economy. Way over crowded."
Cons: "Check the head phone sets have both speakers working. I had to ask for a different set which was fine"
Pros: "Boarding and Crew are excellent. That's why i prefer to fly with Emirates. Toilets are clean"
Cons: "On this flight, the Gluten Free snack wasn't good. Only one meal was served. For a 10 hour flight, there should be two meals. A snack was served towards the end of the flight. The GF snack was not good! it was two rice cakes with chicken inside. I felt as if they ran out of GF bread!"
Pros: "Exceptional flight super comfortable"
Cons: "That i didn't receive my bucket list dream of an upgraded flight but that literally was thing that could have improved a really great flight..."
Cons: "Lap dances. Strippers. Cabin crew in miniskirts snd high heels."
Pros: "The food was nice and the crew were friendly."
Cons: "My screen didn't work properly and only after asking about it 4+ times were we moved to other seats. Unfortunately the new seats were double middle seats for my husband and I who left window and aisle seats respectively. Please fix your entertainment, Emirates."

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing. The video quality and sound were not great"
Pros: "Comfortable seats, enough space for legs, helpful crew, We were offered a voucher to stay in a hotel close to the airport to get a few hours of sleep or relaxation. The voucher included lunch and dinner with good food.."

Pros: "Flight delayed 7:16 hours"
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Flight attendants not friendly, some downright rude and looked like they hated their jobs (bumped into seats, rushed service, visibly irritated when people would ask for assistance), my video wasn’t working properly and was told “it’s an old plane, there is nothing we can do, it will be retired soon, we can get you some you some magazines”, food was terrible."
Pros: "What I like is the food served, the entertainment, and the toilet."
Cons: "Their services has drop, which is quite sad. As I heard from my Friend that Emirates is the best, but it seems not."

Cons: "The flight on the B777 was most uncomfortable, even in Business Class. Will avoid any flight in this aircraft/airline in future"
Cons: "The seating room in the 747 with 10 seats per row is limiting and uncomfortable. The passenger beside me was pushing well into my space, and the rambunctious flight attendants kept marching right into me and banging my seat with the cart, once also spilling water all over me. (Though she was very nice about it, and I wasn’t upset with her personally.)"

Cons: "Some rude passengers"

Pros: "It was fine. Crew was pleasant, though obviously stretched thin. Food was decent. We ran a little late boarding, but they managed to take off almost on time."
Cons: "The 777 was crowded and had very little leg room. Our seats were worse than most, as they were over the wing which limited visibility and restricted the already limited leg room of that passenger even more."
Pros: "Very comfortable and good service aboard plane."
Cons: "Very long ride on bus from plane to terminal in DubaI. Very unusual and uncomfortable."
Cons: "debarking process was one of the longest in my life"
Pros: "Start scurty things with people who has short time to the next flight"
Pros: "The flight attendants were very cheerful. There was a good variety of movies and other entertainment."

Pros: "Friendly, accommodating, and professional service!"
Pros: "Everything!!!!!"
Pros: "The reception at Dubai and delivery to the hotel. Friendly crew. Toilet regularly cleaned"
Cons: "Short on instruction on using the entertainment module. Having to repeatedly ask for water because it only came in small half glasses each time"
Cons: "Very poor food menu selection. For an airlines like emirates getting even the basics for Vegetarian mean was missing. A wrap offered was no where close to edible feeling. in AVML meal ordered what was offered was Pathai Noodles and some oriental vegetable preparations with Indian Achaar. didnt make any combination what so ever."
Pros: "As comfortable as can be expected in economy class... more comfortable than other carriers to be sure. Service from the flight crewy was excellent. The food actually quite good."
Cons: "Boarding process is the one area that could be improved."
Pros: "Good sleep is most important & emirates is very good in this regard. Food is only fair especially the hot food served at dinner. Wines served are generally of a good to a high standard. Some crew members are better than others. Some are really excellent including any of the Irish members of the team - they always standout with their warmth, friendship & ability to read people & situations."
Cons: "Crew was unprofessional Bags got lost and took forever for any bags to go through on carrousel They boarded nearly an hour before take off and process was very disorganized Hardly any water served"
Pros: "I flew business class and they do an exceptional job of making you comfortable. Great seats that allow you to completely lie down and an attentive staff."
Cons: "The entertainment was surprisingly uninteresting during this trip. Previously it's been better. The food options were also not as good, but the food was a notch above most other airlines so can't complain too much."
Pros: "Seats are way better than other airlines and the entertainment systems is way better. Finally, someone decided it would be a good idea to provide power outlets in a plane. Why was that so hard?"

Cons: "i did not like the food"
Pros: "sitting and staff"
Cons: "food option"

The bathroom is not that good.. dirty.. the sink is not properly draining.. (all bathrooms - all flights- back&forth) . There was no toilet paper seat either going to DC. Crew is not picking up trays/trash right away. Once, we even brought our tray in the back. Food should be mix of western& middle east. middle east food is a bit too much for some passengers- too smelly, spicy,— The crew are nice though. Very helpful and friendly.

Great flight. It would be great to get small things like salt pepper and a cube of butter( when bread is provided) with the meal.

Firstly the flight was delayed, these things happen but nevertheless I end up missing my connecting Qatar flight to Belgrade, put into a horrible little hotel for 24hrs without my bag, no clothes or toiletries. At one point during the flight once everyone had their chairs reclined one hostess told me to not put mine so far back?!?! Then when asked well then person in front of me has to move theirs forward and her response no they don’t. Absolutely shocking. To think I wanted to upgrade to business class. I’m traveling the globe over the next year and thought let me try Qatar but never again with this type of service and how they treat their customers."

Cons: "Stupid and unbelievable rules"
Cons: "Airport hotel costs around 350$ No entry visa for layovers exceeds 8 hours as they announced The answer they’re not giving entry visas is you bought a discounted ticket!!"
Cons: "15 passengers waiting in line for the bathroom"
Pros: "Food, seat, overall comfort and timeliness."
Cons: "The entertainment system was not working - on a 12+ hour flight..."
Pros: "Staff very friendly. Loved the adjustable headrest as I am shorter and this is the first time flying that my neck was so comfortable I didn't need my travel pillow! Food was excellent!"
Cons: "Nothing!"
Pros: "i liked that the entertainment system had a lot to offer, lots of movies and options. I liked the staff, they were very cooperative and friendly."
Cons: "the flight was delayed 45 minutes, passengers were waiting in a non-air-conditioned aircraft. The AC was working after takeoff. The airplane chairs were small and no leg room, on a 7 hour flight to Barcelona that was exhausting! Couldn't manage to get some sleep at all. Overall, at least I arrived to my destination safe and sound. Thank you!"
Pros: "The crew on my side of the cabin was very good."
Cons: "Not having available air for the center seats made our flight a truly awful experience. The older style seats are actually more comfortable for taller and larger people. My wife was virtually ignored by the male crew on her side of the aircraft."
Cons: "USD 20 wi fi and you only get 200 MB seems a bit antiquated"
Cons: "Dely to time"
Pros: "Generally good experience at least as far as a very long flight with two children can go. Good food with plenty and quite healthy snacks for kids. Very friendly and attentive crew, comparably comfortable seats, clean and comfortable bathrooms (what not always has been my experience with other airlines)"
Cons: "Due to a misunderstanding at check-in we have been seated away from a baby bassinette (although booked) to sit together with my husband, nobody asked what my preference would be (sitting as a whole family or having a bassinette) and a 17-hour flight with a 9month old baby constantly on my lap was challenging. Also a very disappointing selection of films and documentaries for adults. I ended watching a kids movie with my older daughter and it was the only thing I found appealing. Kids section very good though, my 5-year old was glued to the screen and all the options had my approval :)"
Pros: "Okay"
Cons: "Okay"
Cons: "Didnt have food My mother has diabetes and she had one meal in her 14 hr flight Unacceptable"
Cons: "It was all good"
Pros: "My trip from Beijing to Doha was fine."
Cons: "I didn't like my trip from Dar to Doha nor from Doha to Dar. The plane is too small. The food wasn't good and they ran out of Mango juice both ways. I sat next to someone who had the smelliest feet on earth. Just wasn't pleasant."
Pros: "We departed late and therefore missed the connection. The staff met me and made arrangement for hotel accommodations till the next available flight. No haggling was necessary. staff on ground and in air sought to be helpful. Price of ticket was very affordable. Seating comfortable."
Cons: "Comparing to Emirates airlines...Movie choices were very limited. Only 2 new movies available. Food was poor at best. This was my second trip with Qatar. First trip...my iPad was stolen from baggage. Airline have had no solution. I prefer Emirates."
Cons: "Very uncomfortable seats- Space between seats is very tight"
Cons: "Plane configuration; seats were a bit cramped, knee space."
Pros: "Flight. Conections"
Cons: "Change flexibility, helpfulness"
Cons: "I checked in a couple of hours after checkin open but unfortunately I could not get my preferred window seat, got a middle instead. But still the leg room would have been ok but the middle seat (second row behind the bilkhead row) had the front passenger's entertainment system arranged across the footwell, not sideways, so it completely blocked the footwell and prevented any stretching of the legs. I am a tall passenger and this caused much discomfort on the flight, I had to keep getting up to walk around. I also found the seat bottom quite uncomfortable (not enough padding I think), butnghis could have been made worse by the footwell issue. Regards Neil"
Pros: "on time no one in my row so i got to sleep good food"
Cons: "enoyed it all"
Pros: "Intertainment was very good"
Cons: "The hostess were not in profisional, they were very rush while giving the food the toilet was not clean"
Pros: "food"
Cons: "Worst customer service ever seen in my 15years of flying experience. Initially charged $1000 for 3 tickets for modification of return trip - confirmed the same and tickets issued (i'm fine with this). But, after i made arrangements for new date, I got a call saying calculation error and asked to pay another $500 leaving me no choices. How can such a reputed airline have no tools to calculate the pay? Other airlines offered one-way for half of the price i paid. On top of it, online helpdek promised front line seat to satisfy me but nothing was offered even if i ask explicitly. Simply declined saying i am not in priority list. Why do they make false promises? Friends, Just don't fly for food ....."
Pros: "I was incredibly impressed with the on board crew. They were kind, efficient, courteous, thoughtful, and charismatic. They made the LONG flight enjoyable and extra comfortable. :)"
Cons: "All the services and the airport"
Pros: "all perfect"
Cons: "all was perfect"
Pros: "Some of the crew were amazing and some were grouchy and not very helpful"
Pros: "Everything was excellent even the landing was as smooth as butter"
Cons: "A free upgrade to a business class seat :("
Cons: "I loved everything about Turkish Airlines. Their food is one of the best! You can eat it all and actually tastes good! The level of individual service, unbiased service, is amazing. The crew is polite, well kept, and dare I say very good looking. All my flights with them departed and arrived as scheduled, always!"
Pros: "Food was really good, staff was helpful and friendly and there was more legroom that I've often experienced. Also - flight was NOT packed - there was actually an empty mid-row seat!"
Pros: "Left on time, arrived on time, crew were friendly and efficient, toilets were kept clean the entire flight, seat in economy had enough leg room and recline to sleep"
Cons: "In-flight entertainment films were a bit limited"
Pros: "Good gluten free bread on Istanbul to Malta leg. Blankets are good as is amenity pack which has all but diasappeared on BA. Good choice of films"
Cons: "Foot rest in economy, gluten free meal is poor (except bread)."
Pros: "Good food good movies"
Cons: "The head phones are terrible."
Pros: "Good service and timely departure"
Cons: "Ability to choose seats before trave and requested that during bookingl. During the check-in process no attempt was made accommodate my request."
Cons: "Tell passengers the truth from the start!"
Pros: "Large screens, reusable dishes + silverware"
Cons: "Plane was old, felt more squished and the seats did not decline. Also very note."
Pros: "Likes: The staff were prompt and friendly. The food was more varied and imaginative than on other airlines. Also, the fact that you get a refund, without any hassle, if you need to change your travel plans, makes this airline unique."
Cons: "Suggestions: A few more centimetres of space between the rows of seats would work wonders. A piece of fruit (apple or tangerine) would add to the enjoyment of the food. A wider range and variety of movies would increase the quality of the entertainment."
Cons: "The flight to Lviv was cancelled after 3 hours delay. All happens in life. But the only option Turkish airlines were offering is to fly the next day. I was flying to the funeral and this was not working for me (especially this was their second flight to Lviv cancelled - 2 in a row). The transfer desk didn't inform that there were two other flights going the same day of other airlines. When i approached to help me to go with a different airline the personal was very rude saying they will not help transferring the luggage and that they can't unload the luggage sooner than 3 hours after you go out of the security and passport control. When i asked to book to a different destination in Ukraine. It took 50 min at the desk to do it. Simply because 4 people at the desk were laughing and joking and nobody was concerned about the queue of over 40 people staying. After 30 min it turned out they've lost my boarding pass and it took 15 min to find it as one of the transfer guys managers simply took it to a different room... At the end when they found it it took only 5 min to do the work. I would appreciate more information from the desk about available flights and more support to manage the situation. I'm happy that people at the transfer desk are so joyful and happy it obviously helps to deal with the stressed passengers whose flight was cancel."
Cons: "It was a struggle to get our hotel from the turkish hotel desk crew. We were travelling from Cape Town to Toronto with a little baby and had a layover of approx 10 hours at Istanbul. They claimed that our layover was 9 hr 40 mins (and not 10 hours) and I had to argue before we finally got a transit hotel. Their customer service is poor."
Pros: "great"
Cons: "long boarding"
Cons: "small plane, noisy! did not like business class. BUt overall ok"
Pros: "This was a normal flight. Nothing out of the norm. good food, and good entertainment selection."
Pros: "the crow"
Pros: "Extras provided - eye mark, socks etc"
Cons: "My seat was unable to recline. My husband and I were moved to a middle aisle (although we really didn't want to share) only to find that the foot rest at my foot rest was also faulty. It was an uncomfortable flight"
Pros: "Food was good"
Cons: "Hour and a half delay"
Cons: "When we arrived walking to the shuttle the crew had thrown our play pen n stroller out on the walkway. They didnt take it inside with our luggage.It was checked in with all the suitcases! So luckly my son recognized it as we were walking by. Very disapointed if he hadnt noticed it we would of been out of luck. No baby bed or stroller! Why dont they take it with the luggage OR at least let you know they dont transfer them for you! Not happy"
Pros: "customer service, food, entertainment."
Cons: "small seats"
Cons: "My flight was delayed, and the wrong gate was initially listed for my connecting flight, causing me to miss my flight. I asked to transfer to the next flight, but the staff there argued with me and refused to do so, saying I must purchase another ticket. I was forced to purchase a visa, go through passport processing, and purchase a new ticket that cost nearly as much as my entire round trip ticket from the US. I then had to pay to stay overnight in a hotel and had to make alternate arrangements to meet my hosts when I finally reached my destination."
Pros: "Food was tasty and fresh but staff cold and aloof"
Cons: "It was very hot during the entire flight."
Pros: "Good entertainment system, nice food"
Cons: "Bad crew. I was so thirsty and asked for water several times but never got them. Left the plane with a huge migraine"
Pros: "Easy check in online, staff onboard very pleasant, good varied food onboard"
Cons: "Everything was smooth... what happened to the turkey delights at the beginning of each flight?"
Pros: "I liked the entertainment- plenty of things to watch and listen to. Food was good. I also enjoyed the service, hot towels and friendliness of staff. Overall, it was a great experience!"
Cons: "Sitting next to many kids who were very noisy and messy. They completely trashed the bathrooms which did not make it fun for me to use after them. This is just what I did not like- I understand this is no fault of the airlines or their staff. I am just more aware that several Turkish families may fly back and forth with their children and as a passenger, you may be seated close to them on the plane- just a thought."
Cons: "Crew was a bit rude on several occasions."
Pros: "Food was pretty good."
Cons: "Crew was disorganized. Half the plane didn't get the bread that was supposed to be on the breakfast menu. Service was slow and not enough crew. Also had to wait 30 minutes to use the bathroom because the crew told me I couldn't go into the one I was already in line for and the other one was being cleaned. Seats were more cramped than most airlines (and I'm short)."
Pros: "Comfortable flight, friendly flight attendants, food, usb port to charge my phone, and the in-flight entertainment"
Cons: "N/a"
Pros: "Operativity, cleaning, food,"
Cons: "The additional security check for flight from Istanbul to US was somewhat unpleasant as women were called out from the line to be separated from men for security check. They should have wait for each family to come up for their turn to be checked, so families would not need to be separated for a while."
Pros: "Exceptional service and very friendly crew members."
Pros: "Service, food, entertainment is off the charts!"
Cons: "Seat comfort and legroom in Economy is below standards for even a domestic flight. Flew for over 21 hours on two concurrent flights and I was almost insane. Last leg was on Jet Blue and I felt like I was in First Class with their leg room and seats."
Pros: "I always enjoy flying with Turkish airlines it is a breeze from check in all the way destination from food to entertainment it all runs so smooth I will fly with u any day so far that is the best"
Pros: "The food was decent, as well as the movie selection."
Cons: "The crew were incredibly rude, it was badly organised, there we delays on our flights, the boarding process was a nightmare. After booking both mine and my boyfriend's tickets we were later warned that there will be an 8 hour lay over instead of the expected 3 hour (as booked). I will try my very best to avoid Turkish Airlines in the future. After taking many long haul flights in my life, I can safely say that this was my worst and most disorganised travel."
Pros: "The crew is super. The food is good and the entertainment system is almost perfect (free WiFi will make it the best ever)"
Cons: "legs space, legs space and legs space. I will hesitate to pick up turkish only because of that. in long flights there are a lot of satisfaction factors but this is the most important one for me. if I have to get up every 20 min to stretch, it is not working."
Pros: "Food and service very good"
Pros: "Food and entertainment were good. Crew was pleasant and attentive. Flying in business class with them is always nice. There was a lof of leg room and nice seats that go almost fully reclining."
Cons: "Where to start from? Got off the plane from the flight from Barcelona to Istanbul, to connect to New York and first thing this woman insists that me and my friend should go to exit and baggage claim instead of international transfers. My friend had to get a visa at check out and all the trouble of trying to get back into the gate simply because of a STUPID AIRPORT STAFF who doesn't know what they are doing. I have had trouble before with airport staff who doesn't know what they are doing or give wrong directions. That is why will avoid flying with them to Europe."
Pros: "entertainment"
Cons: "Seating too narrow"
Pros: "Loved the entertainment center and options. Loved the frequency of beverage service."
Cons: "Nothing. Everything was great!"
Pros: "Everything"
Pros: "Great flight/airline, but boarding was a hot mess!"
Cons: "Overall, we had a great flight and will probably fly with the Turkish Airlines again. But boarding was an absolute mess: the "secure" gate area was tiny and way too small to accommodate all the people on the flight, and the temperature in that area of the terminal was blistering hot. Combined with an organization that was messy, let's just say that all of us were REAL happy when we finally boarded the plane."
Pros: "I loved it from the second it started, I didn't want to get off the plane. The service and comfort can't be beat. You get alot more than what you pay for."
Cons: "The entertainment was a little out of date and lacking but everything else makes up for it"
Pros: "Very spacious, lots of room, on time. A nice experience overall."
Cons: "Snacks weren't free. No entertainment, but to be expected on domestic flight."
Pros: "To get a real meal on a relatively short flight is especially nice."
Cons: "I lost my lagguge You"
Pros: "Crew food and entertainment system had many options which helps on such a long flight"
Cons: "Leg room was below average. Entertainment system only had movies. No tv shows so nothing of short duration"

Flight delayed 50min

Space was very poor and earphones awful. Mixed on staff, some good, some bad!

Pros: "Situation was handled well."
Cons: "Lack of information on the cause of delay."
Cons: "The entertainment did not work good the entire flight"
Cons: "Beef main course overcooked and dry."
Pros: "Planes were comfortable and well maintained."
Cons: "People in economy who have no common sense and put their seat all the way back into the personal space of the person sitting behind them. They should not be able to recline that far. If they need that much room take first class."
Pros: "Literally one of the worst check in experiences I have ever had traveling"
Cons: "The person checking me in could have given me a few minutes to help me understand the flight delay"
Pros: "The crew was excellent and the seats are v comfortable"
Cons: "I cant really think of anything"
Pros: "Nothing really of note. The plane was pretty basic and unexxceptional, but that was expected for the price."
Cons: "Touch screens were not working well. Required multiple hard taps which disturbed the passenger in front."
Cons: "Giving economy seats with the middle seat empty does not make it business class. Very uncomfortable seats. No recline and very hard."
Cons: "The flight was delayed several times and we were kept waiting at the gate without knowing when exactly we will leave."
Cons: "Too high price tickey and had to buy luggage"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Not making my connection due to plane delay, poor boarding processes, long Lufthansa lines, and slow customer service. Couldn't make my connecting flight or the flight after that because they were over booked. Then was sent to Brussels with a 4 hour layover, and missed my Saturday interview at 4 pm. Then the Brussels Airlines flight was delayed. Never again."
Pros: "The cheese sandwich was good."
Cons: "Flight left late. Airport employees weren't helpful. The plane was hot."
Pros: "Business class for great price but I’m tall and not much extra legroom"
Cons: "N/A"
Pros: "Nothing this was a nightmare."
Cons: "We missed our connected flight because or flight was delayed... this does not make any sense. If the flight is delayed, there should be proper high priority check in and bus transport implemented so we arrive at our gate on time. Me and the 2 other passengers had zero chance to arrive on time and were at a loss of breath. And i paid for my selected seats to which i am asking for a refund because what happened was unacceptable. When we addressed our concern, the lufthansa employee told us that u cannot have buses for all the passengers in a situation of a delay.... unacceptable.... how is this the client's fault to miss a flight due to a delay?"
Cons: "I didn't fly with Lufthansa...n I didn't fly to Frankfurt..right now I'm in Zurich...Switzerland..."
Pros: "The crew was nice"
Cons: "The boarding process and the fees"
Pros: "Fast boarding."
Cons: "The usual flight discomfort, but the seat in front of me was broke. The person in it struggled to stay out of my lap, which I appreciated. The connecting flight had a non-functional screen and the reading light broke and flew across the cabin."
Cons: "The gate was moved three times."
Cons: "It was a different way later flight"
Pros: "Everything."
Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "Having to wait 3 hours to catch the next plane. Also Frankfurt airport takes too long to get from one place to another- it’s a maze and there are too many slow checkpoints for connecting flights."
Cons: "Crew was nice, but big push to check-in carry-on. There was in fact plenty of room in overhead bin"
Pros: "Everything. Though Frankfurt airport is big, it was smooth transition."
Pros: "All good - flight, service all great!!!"
Cons: "Flight cancelled. Stuck in airport for 24 hrd"
Cons: "My bag did not make the connection. Had to make a claim and was told it would be on the next flight arriving at 12:30 PM. I did not receive it until 10:00 PM at our lodging."
Pros: "Pleasant efficient crew and although we had a late departure the pilot made up the time and we did not miss our connection"
Pros: "Everything on Rome to Frankfurt was fine."
Pros: "Great flight crew, very friendly. Was just slightly alarmed that my friends and I never once had to show ID or passport to get onto the plane, especially given the current turmoil in europe. otherwise, enjoyed the flight and will fly more"
Pros: "Roomy seats and good space between rows. Didn't have the feel of being on a cattle car like most flights in the US"
Cons: "Boarding process. Felt like a mad dash just to scan your boarding pass."
Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Nice flight."
Cons: "Delayed flight."
Pros: "Upgrade!"
Cons: "Boarding a blitz chaotic"
Pros: "Smaller plane was more comfortable than the A380 that took me to Frankfort.."
Cons: "The cheese sandwich was awful."
Pros: "Seats in business class were the most uncomfortable I have ever experienced :(((("
Cons: "Seats in business class were the most uncomfortable I have ever experienced :(((("
Pros: "excellent service"
Cons: "very long wait for baggage"
Cons: "Plane transfer and customs at Frankfort were the worst I have ever encountered. Had to go so far between the two gates that had the flight from Seattle not been 30 minutes early and the plane to Barcelona posted as 10 minutes later than originally stated, we would have missed the connecting flight."
Pros: "I love Lufthansa: flight attendants so attentive, Complimentary services that other airlines charge for. Attentive staff...and I flew economy."
Cons: "Wel"
Pros: "On time"
Pros: "Flight more or less on time - efficient"
Cons: "Baggage handlers on strike - airport chaotic - Swissport did poor job communicating waht was going on. One bag eventually arrived - took 3 hours second bag did not arrive and apparently did not get transferred in Frankfurt Told they would deliver bag - next day and would text and call - called at 4am !!! I just had come off 20hrs of travel. Phone on mute. No e mail. Now they say will deliver this evening - but no time slot so another wasted vacation day waiting for them to get their act together. Why can't they call/text me with a 30 minute window."
Pros: "Lost my tablet and it was returned to me! Great staff."
Cons: "The seat design at exit rows. The pouch is too far away. Made me leave my tablet behind bc it was too far. Nothing of significance to complain about. It was overall, a great flight and safety was put ahead of everything. Well done."
Pros: "See above"
Cons: "See above"
Pros: "The basics were fine."
Cons: "The crew on the flight was really loud and talked about unprofessional things. Every time I was woken up it was by a flight attendant talk to another attendant really loud across the plane. Also, this was advertised as Lufthansa but was actually United. Kayak seems to do this frequently, and as a customer it is confusing and disappointing."
Pros: "Never got on this flight on the booked day and got out the next day"
Cons: "The lines for boarding are ineffective and take too long."

A heads up on filling in an e-ticket prior to flight departure would have been helpful.

Never booked this flight

Cons: "Friendlier crews"
Cons: "I had paid for an upgrade to sit in the front of the cabin with extra legroom (row 14A). When I boarded a man sat it my seat. He had not paid for the upgrade, but the crew let him stay in my seat. I had asked him to social distance but he continued to sit right behind me bo matter which seat I moved to. He argued with the crew until they gave up and let him stay. They did not check his boarding pass or ask him to move to his assigned seat I found a different seat away from him but I don’t see the point in paying for extra legroom when the crew let’s people who haven’t paid for it sit it those seats. I felt harassed by the man and was very uncomfortable the whole flight. I am considering my next step, I think I should at least receive a refund for the upgrade I paid for."
Pros: "Professional crew. Good simple check in."
Cons: "Nothing."
Cons: "I paid for the preferred seat .and i found that people beside me didnt pay anything when i asked them ,"
Pros: "Usual faultless KLM experience"
Cons: "Nothing."
Pros: "The crew was amazing, flight on schedule and good entertainment."
Cons: "Space is just reasonable on a long flight, even if there's seats more spacious that you could choose if you pay more."
Pros: "No delay and nice staff"
Cons: "There was no wifi on flight"
Cons: "The plane was very hot"
Pros: "The space at my feet with the chair in front was a bit akward."
Cons: "Not being seated next to small kids. Perhaps they should have a separate section? ;-)"
Pros: "KLM was a great experience compared to Airitalia. The food was good, the flight attendants were very helpful."
Pros: "Crew was amazing, seats were comfortable with enough leg space even without choosing extra space seats. It was my childhood dream come true to fly with KLM. It was really an exciting trip for me, just that it was short."
Cons: "Well, for me everything was on point. Those who have never travelled with KLM, I would encourage them to do so and I’m sure they will not regret."
Pros: "the crew was nice"
Cons: "Seat confort on long flights, leg rooms,"
Pros: "Quick flight"
Pros: "The crew!!"
Pros: "The service"
Cons: "The food."
Pros: "Best airline in the business quick efficient and outstanding service What else can you say"
Cons: "Flight canceled, poor communication from the airline to the passengers. Møre than 5 hrs delay"
Cons: "None of our 4 checked bags arrived with us. This was despite ample connection time (2+ hours) in Amsterdam."
Pros: "Snooth and efficiënt with a KLM service"
Cons: "No entertainment"
Cons: "Nothing good to say about this flight. The plane was old with no entertainment. The sits where very compact and not comfortable at all. The food was a sweet bread and water. The flight attendants were rushing and will take a while if you needed anything. I felt like I was taking a bus with graffiti all over the place."
Pros: "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."
Pros: "I enjoyed the attention to detail and comfort. Helped to make the flight easier to handle."
Pros: "Really friendly staff. Great service"
Cons: "The streaming service didn’t work"
Cons: "After more than two hours of delay... Initially the flight takes off was at 8:35... Then 21:20... Then 21:50... Then 22:10. Finally we took off at 22:40... Refund our money klm..."
Pros: "Delayed flight but staff apologized as for safety reasons."
Cons: "Very late arrival"
Pros: "The aircraft was clean"
Cons: "The food was terrible, wifi was extremely expensive (Delta had free messaging over their wifi)"
Cons: "The 767 is configured oddly and th business class seats are so narrow it feel like you are sleeping in a coffin"
Pros: "Seats were comfortable"
Cons: "Flight was delayed by 2 hours. Could have gone to Amsterdam and come back in that time"
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: "Only thing we liked was the fact that we were able to get onto our flight at all..."
Cons: "Was not informed that checking in online is the only way to secure a seat. So, regardless of whether you book your tickets 3 months in advance or the day before, you're not actually guaranteed a seat unless you check in online. We weren't told this until we were at the airport and checked in there that we might not be able to get our pre-booked in advance flight because of over-booking from KLM. We then had to wait and see if there were seats available when boarding. Luckily, there were, but we were not sat together. Not the greatest start to our first holiday together as a couple. We were told that if there weren't seats available, they'd pay for us to get to another airport to fly out, which would have meant a huge delay on the only time off we'd get together this year and have to rearrange our pre-booked and pre-paid living arrangements for the week. All because there wasn't a lot of emphasis on the need to check in online before hand. You'd think if someone checked in at the airport, that would be more of a guarantee that they'd be flying with you that day, but apparently not. Definitely not impressed or happy with this part of the KLM experience. This is the only company that we've had this problem with, they should make it clearer that it is essential to check in online."
Pros: "Good efficient flight crew friendly and helpful"
Pros: "Service provided by the staff"
Cons: "The navigation of the entertainment system is not very friendly"
Pros: "The supplied pack of toothpaste/toothbrush"
Pros: "Good multi media access and content"
Pros: "From pre-boarding, to boarding, to the food, and the attentiveness, everything was top notch! The cleanliness of the plane was only topped by the friendliness of the crew."
Cons: "The flight was marked at almost 11hrs but ended up being only 9...not a negative other than it meant not spending as much time on board!"
Pros: "Crew was friendly..business class seat was very comfortable and seemed wider than most Nice power outlets great entertainment system"
Cons: "Row 6 in business is after the first 5 rows and Galley and restroom. Very awkward"
Pros: "Eveything is well arranged"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Airline staff good and professional"
Cons: "Nothing one can do, for a 6.2" guy, the metal bar that forms the shape for the pouch for magazines and such digs into knees, ESP if person in front adjusts seat back. Fold out table barely accommodates laptop."
Pros: "I really like the spaciousness, the plug ins and general service"
Cons: "I have a dairy allergy but had no option to prepurchase a dairy free meal. It made for a very unenjoyable flight as I couldn't eat anything they had. What was worse was after I told them of my situation they said they understood and had a meal that would do but there was cheese, yogurt, milk chocolate, etc."
Pros: "Jet airways flight till mumbai"
Cons: "Poor legspace in Klm flight till Amsterdam"
Cons: "Pet was left behind at vacation destination as pet's reservation (made and confirmed through KLM) was not found at check in. Waiting for Customer Care to help get pet home and take responsibility for situation and getting no response. Very dissapointed, considering law suit."
Cons: "The bags where damaged from the staff"
Pros: "They were awesome."
Pros: "Wide selection of entertainment, food was good."
Cons: "Boarding unorganized, but that may have been more of a passenger issue then KLM"
Pros: "Flight crew on flight from Amsterdam to Cape Town were probably the most friendly and enthusiastic I've experienced and no, they were not all young. The plane was spotless throughout the flight. They were always coming around with water and juice and they genuinely seemed to care about all the passengers. The Flight back crew were just the opposite. More like the old lazy farts you get on the American carriers or BA or QF long haul. Whoo have been there for the long haul and should have stopped ages ago."
Cons: "The Entertainment images on the screens promoted Beauty and the Beast, Batman Lego movie but neither were on the system! Food quality was rubbish"
Pros: "The crew was very nice and helpful."
Cons: "The space is no longer a respectful space. Paid 32 Euros for my seat, there was not enough space, the man beside me kept jabbing me on the ribs."
