Airline reviews

The cabin crew was mediocre and were not cheerful at any time! Food was very mediocre compared to other Gulf airlines. Seats in economy was reasonable. My baggage didn’t arrive at the final destination and the local staff were not customer friendly in helping out. I hope my baggage arrives! Would still recommend the airlines if you want a decent connection to India or elsewhere.

Food not served in time..staff is rude

The flight was great but layover was 14 hours and nothing was provided by the airline to cushion the wait.

Kayak canceled and reissued the ticket on the day before my travel, which messed up my seat You might got some money with the change , but your rating will go down

Food was bad

courteous flight attendants, great food, diligent attention to requests, clean, love entertainment options and the consistent notice of the planes advancement of flight(status of flight progress)

Pros: "Everything about the trip was great excellent customer experience"

Cons: "No gate for departure or arrival. No business class longe in Cape Town."
Pros: "smoothing take off and landing"
Cons: "Food quality and variety is not good. Also, their serving speed is very poor. Boarding should be more informed and more organized upfront."
Pros: "Absolutely nothing."
Cons: "Everything. 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: "Have air fresheners in toilets. Make it smell better."
Pros: "Everything was great, as the flight wasn't full, so we could relax"
Pros: "The crew was amazing and delightful."
Cons: "The crew was amazing and delightful but should provide food to kids first before even those special diet or vegetarians."

Cons: "Everything was amazing"
Pros: "The seats have great leg room and recline nicely"
Cons: "7kg and only one carry one!?? Budget airlines do better!! Try being a professional with a laptop and a few travel essentials and you won’t get far on Qatar. How crazy. Even if you have diamond one world status (the highest) unless u fly business class there is no chance in getting more onboard for your carryon. Works best airline my a**!"
Cons: "n/a"
Pros: "The in flight service was good"
Cons: "The time it took to get the baggage. It took over 2 hours"
Pros: "All around great airline. Comfortable for super long flights and completely accommodating."

Pros: "all"
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: "The trays of water could come around more frequently"
Pros: "On time. food were good in general."
Cons: "Complimentary hotel for 10 hours layover is needed whether or not if it's an economic passenger. Air stewardess can improve basic English pronounciation of English is her / his second language."

Cons: "It was excellent."
Cons: "It was all good"
Cons: "The legroom is ok but the space between two seats is very tight and felt very cramped throughout."
Pros: "The seats recline far enough tonsleep good Good movie selection Good tv selection although more episodes would be nice"
Cons: "Plane configuration; seats were a bit cramped, knee space."
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"
Cons: "It was canceled while am at the airport and i rebooked"
Pros: "Enjoyed the personal attention and charming personality of the flight crew!"
Cons: "Can't think of any!"
Cons: "No leg room, very confining. Food so-so. I do not recommend traveling on this airline."

Cons: "Smells from others"
Pros: "Service"
Cons: "Mashed connection"
Pros: "Crew was friendly. Flight left on time!!!!!! :)"
Cons: "Food was served too late. Unable to get a bottle of water as I was dehydrated."
Pros: "The staff was amazing! I started I get a headache- probably because of low blood sugar, and one of the attendant provided me with constant water, ginger ale, and chocolates. It was so sweet- she didn't have to make sure I was okay, but she chose to our the kindness of her heart!"
Cons: "The cramped quarters. I had a very tall person sit practically on my lap the entire flight, as he leaned his chair back the entire time. It left no room for me to use the table for my laptop. I was fortunate that no one sat next to me on my first flight, but for the second one I was not so lucky – so I couldn't work on my schoolwork."
Pros: "Qatar Airways is a nice airline and it's obvious they work on making your flight a pleasant experience with a lot of food, entertainment, etc"
Cons: "My flight was delayed 4 hours upon initially arriving to the airport. While it was important for me to be there when I found out this information because I needed to reschedule my connecting flightso due to the delay, this should not be required. Qatar Airways, knew the flight was going to be delayed at least 10 hours before they announced it. They should have already began the process of rescheduling connecting flights and figuring out problems before passengers arrive to the airport. I probably spent 45 minutes at the ticket counter working things out."
Cons: "The flight was delayed from Doha to London. And I lost my bag."
Pros: "All"
Cons: "Connection"
Pros: "Seats were comfortable and staff were friendly and accommodating"
Cons: "Quality of food could have been better"
Pros: "King Hamad Airport is more comfortable and convenient than its Dubai equivalent. Staff were courteous."
Cons: "Dreamliner has very narrow chairs. I was uncomfortable in both directions. The toilets also seem to leak or splash water on the floor. Not a nice airplane."

Thumbs up for KLM crew, planes and Schiphol Airport, though short on staff and a little late everything went smooth, including the flight.

It was a Good flight

Flight delayed 5 hours

I love KLM, its very spacious and clean and the landing is always very soft. Great Airline!

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: "Perfect"
Cons: "Nothing. Flight was amazing"
Cons: "Bigger seats the new ones are way to narrow"
Pros: "Decent price for economy comfort seat, 4A."

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: "Crew was great and helpful despite oversight in my special meal."
Cons: "Special meal request was overlook. I did not mind so much as eating less does some good! It is human to err!"
Cons: "They left my bag off the plane. Ridiculous."
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: "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"
Pros: "The crew was nice and helpful (our flight was 2h late so they put us on the one before in business class for us not to miss our connection)"
Cons: "A lot of delays, on both flights. We spent twice as much time waiting than flying."

When they arrived on Amsterdam Netherlands Airport they were dropped to the gate assigned first and once the gate changed on the fly no body came to help them moving to the new gate assigned which was far away to walk. Nobody even came to tell them that the gate has been changed. It was because of my father's alertness they didn't miss the connecting flight and when my father asked help to members on airport none of them helped my parents and other 4 co passengers which also were on wheel chairs. It was so scary experience for them that they asked me not to book any more flights with Jet Airways. I won't recommend Jet Airways to any of my friends for their parents to travel to USA. I strongly recommend you guys to take a strict action against this. This is so unacceptable."
Cons: "None of our 4 checked bags arrived with us. This was despite ample connection time (2+ hours) in Amsterdam."
Pros: "The crew was really friendly."
Cons: "There was a Force Majeur delay in Helsinki due to wings freezing that caused 20 minute delay to Amsterdam and made the interchange stressful."
Pros: "Employees were very friendly"
Cons: "The seats were very small"
Pros: "Overall booking and airport was ok. Food was also actually quite good."

Pros: "I slept pretty much the whole time"

Pros: "Decent meal (warm Pasta all'arrabbiata), nice little muffin for dessert and standard drinks (coffee & tea were a bonus, as they didn't serve any on a similar flight, from Barcelona to Amsterdam), friendly cabin crew."
Cons: "Poor timing - no reason for a 40 minute delay at take off (plane was fully boarded in time) Old aircraft, shabby, dirty and cramped seats. Coming from my connecting flight from Barcelona, I could clearly tell the different in the quality (and cleanliness) of the aircrafts."
Cons: "The cabin crew was racist! She asked me to move from a seat because she wanted another guy ( obviously from her country ) to take it! Rude and racist."
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."
Pros: "Absolutely nothing!"
Cons: "the connection flights was the worse! The gate was changed in Amsterdam 3 times! From D82 to C6 and then to C11. The distance between B82 and C was 20-30 minutes walk. No rushing was needed though, the flight was delayed for 1:30h and after we all boarded a further delay was announced. I will never fly with KLM."
Cons: "Bit cramped for space"
Pros: "Crew were friendly. Flight was comforyable smooth and on time. Nice snack."
Pros: "Comfortable seats. Warm plane with happy staff."

Pros: "The supplied pack of toothpaste/toothbrush"
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: "The sandwiches were simple yet just the right touch, on all four flights."
Cons: "OLD OLD plane with hard seats and tiny screens"
Pros: "Everything. Staff incredible."
Pros: "Arriving more or less on time"
Cons: "Crew is awful. Disrespectful desinterested in customers find themselves very important. No service mentality whatsoever. No respectful airline would hire such arrogant self centered personalities in a service role"
Cons: "Our flight was canceled from Amsterdam to Bordeaux and did not receive any direction and had to find alternate flights for ourselves with the personal expense of using our own cell phones. Then our luggage lost for 3 days. Not happy!"
Cons: "There weren't too many options. The movie selection was very limited and the tv show were over 20 years old in some cases"
Pros: "Flight attendants were friendly, but they only had limited resources to work with."
Cons: "Worst aircraft I have been on in years. No wifi or entertainment, no power outlets, only bad wine/beer for a 3+ hour flight is mediocre at best..."
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"
