Excellent

Pros: "Good crew. Nice flight. Newer equipment."
Cons: "The transfer process was a little burdensome."
Pros: "Everything about the trip was great excellent customer experience"
Cons: "If I got to sit in first class coz the plane was so empty haha"
Pros: "Decent seats. Good amenities for a long flight - entertainment, pack with toothbrush/mask/earplugs/socks."
Cons: "Food"
Cons: "No gate for departure or arrival. No business class longe in Cape Town."
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."
Pros: "Flight attendants were very polite."
Cons: "The seats could be more wide."
Pros: "Because I was in the bulkhead seat - it was good."
Cons: "My first flight arrived 30 min late which meant that my 50-minute layover was tight. But instead of holding the next plane for us, they forced us to re-book on a flight leaving 14 hours later! I was not ok with this so I pushed the issue and they put me on the flight leaving 6hrs later. :-((((("
Cons: "Delayed by 1 hout"
Pros: "The plane was new and spotless, the crew did everything possible to make the flight great. Food service, and Wine and Cocktails were always served with a smiling face and it made you think of flying many years ago. Service cleanliness of the restrooms and staff were top notch"
Cons: "Nothing really."
Cons: "Lights did not work, so diner was guessing whats was in the tray"
Pros: "Crew were helpful"
Cons: "Luggage didn't make it onto flight, from transfer flight"
Pros: "Staff"
Cons: "Nothing for kids. First time i have seen that no toys for kids. No tv and entertaiment for adults"
Cons: "Quatar is the best"
Pros: "Everything was good"
Cons: "Veg Food"
Pros: "It is so far a cut above the American carriers. There’s no way to compare them, because Qatar Airways is so far superior. The seats are far more comfortable and larger, the amount of legroom is far superior, you have much more personal space, and the craft is cleaner. Flight Attendants are fantastic! They provide excellent personal care, and are there for everything. They are supremely polite and courteous, and bring things in mediately. Very often anticipating your needs. This is what flying used to be like on United and American. But those people have completely forgotten what service is. Qatar is a 5 star airline. United and American, to my view, are 2 star at best."
Pros: "Nothing much."
Cons: "I think airplane was small in Doha to Amritsar sector . There are not too many flights"
Pros: "crew was lovely and plane was very new"
Cons: "food quality is not very good: sometimes it was hard to see what it actually was and it tasted like that too. headrest in the new plane is not comfortable at all as it is rigid and can only be moved up and down."
Cons: "Transit 9 hours without hotel"
Pros: "Plane was excellent"
Cons: "Original schedule was changed from Sunday departure to Saturday without notifying us resulting in a 12 hour stay at Philadelphia and a one day loss of our scheduled trip. So far no explanation from webjet."
Cons: "Good service"
Pros: "Great service and great meal options!"
Pros: "Great cabin crew"
Cons: "Crappy old style recliner seats in business class for a 6 hour flight. Not consistent with the Qatar brand"
Pros: "Lovely flight, start to finish. Attentive staff (but not too much so) and seats were comfortable, even in economy. Smooth front and back end to travels as well."
Cons: "Movie selection could have been better."
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: "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."
Pros: "Could not be more impressed with the airline, absolutely would recommend to anyone!"
Pros: "my child was very sick on this flight and the air crew were very concerned and very helpful... i really appreciated all their concern and help. they consulted a doctor on the ground and provided the medicine and advice to bring my 3 year olds sickness under control... ( which included diarrhea and vomiting numerous times... please thank them for me... they were also concerned about her welfare after we would land.... thanks thanks thanks"
Cons: "I did not like the entertainment because it did not work well!!!!!"
Cons: "It was all good"
Cons: "Plane configuration; seats were a bit cramped, knee space."
Cons: "Not being on time from Doha to chicago, it was an hour late departure."
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: "Friendly staff not delayed excellent safe travel"
Pros: "One of the best flights in the past 5 years! 5 gold star service!"
Cons: "Wonderful friendly and helpful crew and check in staff. Excellent food and service. On time departure and arrival. Help with bags during the check in process."
Pros: "Entertainment"
Cons: "Food"
Pros: "a wonderful experience to travel with Qatar airways, recommended for others as well."
Pros: "Good timing"
Cons: "Evry thing"
Pros: "Service"
Pros: "Boarding on time. Crew was very nice except food option."
Cons: "My wife didn't get veg food she is looking for. We asked crew and they said they don't have."
Pros: "This trip was nice. I will fly Qatar again"
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: "I asked the crew to gave me a glass of hot milk cause of my diet, if it's possible, he laughed at me and told me I bring you warm one and never come back with even warm milk"
Pros: "Flight was on time. Boarding was smooth."
Cons: "Long line at the immigration counter in US"
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: "Another fantastic trip with Turkish Airlines. Everything from their membership in Star Alliance, to their awesome customer service, to their fantastic tasting food."
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: "Tea"
Cons: "Food and service"
Pros: "the onboard entertainment system is poor: you don't have your personal screen, and the only programmes available are the saftey video and airline's ads. The flight was delayed for 20 minutes at the start however it arrived on time. So that was not really an issue."
Cons: "The crew are professioanl and the service is OK although you need to ask for your tea/coffee. The food isn't amazing but it meets my expectation about the short flight cuisine."
Pros: "Comfort Entertainment Friendly Staff"
Cons: "N/A"
Cons: "Connecting flight wss unreasonably late and they lied about luggage being loaded onto the flight. One of the bags is completely missing in the system. Waste of time and too much trouble"
Cons: "Delay of 1 hour, waited on the plain extra hour."
Pros: "Good crew. Clean"
Cons: "A little late"
Cons: "Delay flight from Istanbul.."
Pros: "Service food timely departure"
Cons: "Nothing to dislike"
Pros: "Food and entertainment"
Cons: "They ran out of select drinks on the plane. Boarding was a pain!!! They had the longest security checks, and it was extremely chaotic. Seating was crowded."
Pros: "Everything was more than perfect. Thanks Turkish Airlines."
Cons: "On board internet must be faster."
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: "the crow"
Cons: "The flight arrived late and Tipton Long to depart."
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: "While my family and I were waiting for boarding in chairs in front of the gate, my little child falet down and had very minor cut with one blood sign and drop but first aid group came and made some tissue cleaning to the cut with detergent. They told me that medical report is required by the flight captain and this report will cost me 230 TL. I told them no need for their report but they told me that I may not travel and the male misbehaved againest my wife when she told him that no need for their medical assistant and he replied this is not your country. They sqwezed us at the last minute and my remaining family at the plane and they told me that I am not authorized to travel with my wife and small child. We are total of 9 passingers. We were only remaining at the lounge. I told them my remaining family are at plane and I must travel otherwize I am going to claime all charges againest Turkish airline. Finaly at last minute they let me board."
Pros: "Boarding started 40 minutes later than stated on my boarding pass. Had to take a bus to the airplane and the ride was not exactly short - I'm pretty sure the plane was parked at the very other end of the airport. When we finally took off it was exactly an hour later than scheduled. That's the first time I've had a delay longer than the actual flight."
Pros: "The staff!"
Cons: "The turbulence lol"
Pros: "Like most American Airlines, Turkish Airlines provides no-frills service. On the other hand, having a pleasant and respectful flight crew can make a tremendous difference in the passengers experience. We were lucky enough to have a flight attendant named Gulhan Who smiled the entire flight. She was professional, courteous, and service oriented. Most of the flight crew showed similar professionalism. Turkish Airlines had for better service then any of the American or European airlines I have encountered during the last 10 years."
Cons: "The plane was old and not very comfortable. The food was horrible, and the in-flight entertainment was not very good."
Pros: "la comida y el serivico del personal arriba del avion"
Cons: "No me gusto la espera en algunos boarding de los aeropuertos"
Pros: "The food was delicious. I like how whenever there was turbulence, it was announced and we were instructed to put on our seat belts."
Cons: "On my ticket, it said Philippine Airlines and there was no terminal mentioned. It's a good thing I didn't go to the Philippine Airlines terminal, which is in NAIA 2. I went to NAIA 1 because I checked the airport website beforehand. Once I was in the airport, people weren't sure if the flight mentioned in my ticket was the Turkish Airline flight because it said Philippine Airlines on my ticket. I also couldn't do an online check-in."
Pros: "customer service, food, entertainment."
Cons: "small seats"
Pros: "The food and amenities were alright."
Cons: "It left late, the plane lost my friend's luggage for a day."
Pros: "Food was tasty and fresh but staff cold and aloof"
Pros: "Gave us direct flight back to Singapore in premium economy seats."
Cons: "This is our second experience of flights being cancelled via Turkish Airlines. Very disappointing customer care when flights get cancelled. Staff totally unprepared and untrained for such situations. We waited around for 6 hours before finding out on our own, that the flight was cancelled. The notice was not shown on the board. In all waited around at the airport for more than 10 hours before we were finally carted off to a small hotel near by at 1230am in the morning. Very little to no information given throughout the whole process, stranded with parched throats, no luggage, clean clothes or toothbrush."
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: "Food in business class was excellent"
Cons: "Boarding was chaotic. No preferential early boarding for business class or Star Alliance platinum."
Pros: "Good entertainment, food was satisfactory (as much as can be expected in economy class)."
Cons: "Boarding was significantly​ delayed (because of the laptop ban search). Seats were more narrow than usual economy. Service was very slow since they only used one attendant per cart (instead of one in the front and one in the back)."
Pros: "Food"
Cons: "Seats"
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: "On time, good service, good amenities (earbuds, hot towels, pillows/blankets, comfort kit with sleepers, eye covers, ear plugs. Kids got special treatment with additional toys, cocoa and more."
Cons: "Isle seats after rows 47 start to be positioned with an angle to accommodate for the plane's narrowing structure. The result is much less leg space which is insufficient for 6'+ tall people."
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: "Good Food, Comfortable Seats & Good Entertainment Options"
Cons: "N/A"
Pros: "Everything"
Pros: "entertainment"
Cons: "Seating too narrow"
Pros: "The boarding and food."
Pros: "All"
Pros: "The attention to the crew. They were attentive to all orders"
Cons: "The food has too much bread and pasta. The seats recinan well but there is little room"
Pros: "Crew and food were great."
Cons: "Seats handles were too low--could never sit fully upright and rest my arms. Not a comfortable flight."
Pros: "Excellent flight experience"
Cons: "Delayed arrival meant my luggage didn't make connecting flight. Bad!"
Pros: "Minus the delay the flight itself was great! Would definitely fly with them again"
Cons: "Only because the steward was nice I could get a vegetarian meal. The flight needs to be specifically told about vegetarian needs!!"
Pros: "The Turkish Air staff were very patient and accommodating to the Nigerian passengers around me, many of whom seemed to not know the norms of travelling internationally. They were patient and calm, never losing their cool when the passengers were demanding or spoke negatively towards them. I applaud the Turkish Air staff for their flexibility."
Cons: "Travelling with Nigerians."

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

Pros: "Very friendly and helpful"
Cons: "Boarding could be better organized"
Cons: "The entertainment did not work good the entire flight"
Cons: "Beef main course overcooked and dry."
Cons: "I was supposed to have wheelchair assistance. None there. Flight was on time. Passenger assistance is AWFUL!!!"
Pros: "Planes were comfortable and well maintained."
Cons: "One cookie with tea is not enough at this time of day! Boarding was organised terribly and was the main reason for the delay."
Pros: "Seating is terribly tight"
Cons: "A normal human sized seat."
Cons: "The airline cancelled my ticket and did not notify me. I found out only when I arrived to check my bag. Lufthansa cancelled my flight because they said I had “no showed” for my previous flight two weeks before. This was absolutely not true."
Pros: "The crew was excellent and the seats are v comfortable"
Cons: "I cant really think of anything"
Pros: "I like how the crew was friendly"
Cons: "Touch screens were not working well. Required multiple hard taps which disturbed the passenger in front."
Pros: "Boarding pricess"
Cons: "Plane was very cold. We had the last row of seats which meant the flight attendants were making a tremendous amount of noise behind us for the majority of the flight. Crew was not friendly at all. They were more interested in the other crew members than the guests."
Pros: "Plenty of food"
Pros: "Service"
Pros: "Very friendly people. Security guy helped me to get to the wifi at the airport. I could spend my waiting time very productive way sorting out my business emails:)"
Cons: "When I booked with kayak I was not given the option for a vegetarian meal, so I was not able to eat a meal. I was sat next to a five year old invading my personal space. When I developed a migraine from lack of sleep, it took 15 minutes before my ring was answered for water."
Pros: "It’s always a pleasure, easy and organized to fly with you. I have been using Lufthansa for the last 3 years, every time I must fly because of the quality of service and of its crew."
Pros: "Happy to watch the World Cup Final while the flight was delayed 2 hours on the ground."
Cons: "Before take off, I found a small brown bug that looked similar to a bed bug crawling on my arm. I took pictures of it and alerted a crew member. They replaced my pillow and said sorry... I couldn't stop thinking of the idea of bed bugs crawling on me and my personal belongings the whole flight."
Pros: "Food & entertainment were good;"
Cons: "Seats were very tight, several crying babies (no fault of airline) making it difficult to sleep"
Cons: "boarding was late and slow, arrival at Frankfurt late"
Pros: "Promptness Excellent cabin crew"
Pros: "Crew was kind and friendly. The touch screens were responsive and easy to use."
Cons: "The food was a bit disappointing. It would be great if the bread rolls could be heated up and the pasta dishes be made more interesting."
Cons: "Flight was late."
Pros: "Crew was excellent and many passengers were as well."
Cons: "A"
Pros: "The various entertainment choices, movies, tv and games to while away the time."
Cons: "food was mediocre"
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: "No reason for the cancellation was given. I arrived in Cairo a day late for a 10 day tour I had already paid for which caused major problems for me. I will never fly Lufthansa again."
Pros: "I liked the seats, the space for our legs and the crew members"
Pros: "All good - flight, service all great!!!"
Cons: "My flight schedule changed after I bought the ticket, which resulted in paying for the hotel for the extra night and using one more PTO day."
Pros: "The organization of this flight was great— my party of three boarded quickly, and we were pleased with the complimentary drinks service. The entertainment options could have presented with more options, however, I was not upset with what I watched. The crew was very attentive, and the flight was smooth, overall."
Cons: "The temperature of the plane was very hot— there were a lot of us packed into this flight, and there were no sources of air.. so it got pretty stuffy. Between the temperature and the lights staying on for a majority of the flight, it was difficult to sleep, especially for so many hours. In addition to this, I had a dairy allergy, and was not able to eat either of the meals I was offered, because the fish and “veggie pasta” were both covered in cheese."
Pros: "The positive attitude of the crew members. Even though flight long they continued to smile. Very smooth flying and plane on time. Free drinks including alcohol."
Cons: "Cramped conditions."
Pros: "Clean, new plane."
Cons: "Baggage got lost on a direct flight. A lot to improve here."
Cons: "An hour + delayed departure and arrival."
Pros: "During this flight, the attendants were suprisingly kind."
Cons: "Entertainment was just too poor(movie selection was just counted numbers.) the seat comfort was one of the ugliest, I think. even though they prepared many of premium seats, still once you compare with other airlines, it is far below than the average I think."
Pros: "The crew was attentive and everything went smoothly. I was able to change my seat."
Pros: "The first leg of our flight came in late, but the staff at the airport already had someone waiting for us by the gate to escort us to the connecting flight. And the staff was extremely organized and transported our luggage so that it made it to the final destination with us. All this happened in under 30 minutes. Great service"
Pros: "Crew was nice and helpful."
Cons: "Lack of personal space on plane. Couldn't eat my meals without rubbing elbows with the guy in front. Not enough room for my under seat bag."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "They ran out of food choices, so I had to go with mushroom pasta."
Pros: "The food was good and seemed to be plenty for an airline. Most of the crew was really friendly. Just one seemed short and put out by requests. Lots of movie choices. Loved having a USB port available"
Cons: "got the back row, so no reclining, yet the person in front of me reclined so felt crowded and kinda stuck"
Pros: "On time arrival. Excellent service. Everything is perfect. The best part are the flat which are really comfortable."
Cons: "Nothing."
Pros: "WiFi, entertainment and USB charging was good."
Cons: "Felt herded like cattle during the boarding process. No children's amenities as advertised. Children's meal was so-so. Adult meals had chocolate included, which children's meal did not have. Seriously?! The snack provided was all inclusive for adults and children and was way too spicy for my 6-year-old."
Cons: "This airline has little respect for its customers. In the economy/coach cabin, they squeeze the seat distances to such an extent that, when the person in front of you leans their chair back, you cannot get out of your seat at an upright angle. You have to significantly bend your body. To not loose your balance, you have to grab on to the seat in front of you and that disturbs the other passenger. If they're sleeping, they can be woken up by that. Lufthansa does not care much for its passengers. Nor do many other companies, for that matter, but I think Lufthansa is taking things further than most airlines. It is a disgrace. Their brand is not what it once was."
Pros: "Great flight attendants"
Pros: "Excellent airplane, very comfortable."
Cons: "Landed very late in Chicago and lost our connection to home. Had to spend the night to catch another flight home in the morning."
Pros: "Food and service"
Cons: "Entertainment. Sound so bad I had to use subtitles! Boarding complete chaos. No line, everyone wanted to be first."
Pros: "First Time on Lufthansa and came away extremely impressed. I'm a million miler on Delta so I know a little about flying a mainline carrier. Lufthansa blew me away with the level of service and friendliness. It was a short (90 minute) flight but they still offered a free breakfast sandwich along with the beverages. Flight Attendants can switch from German to English without hesitation and were very professional. Look forward to flying with them again."
Cons: "Can't think of anything"
Pros: "The Frankfurt-Boston flight seat was comfortable & food was very good as well as the air hostess in charge was excellent & very cordial."
Cons: "Entertaintainmemt movies"
Pros: "The food was nice and the stewardess were professional."
Cons: "My ticket didn't specifically say I'm not allowed to have check-in luggage, so I needed to pay extra for that. I also got too little transfer time and barely made it because my flight arrived late. Then, my luggage got lost during the transfer, so I had to wait for 5 hours, which made my plans a mess. Overall not satisfied with my flight"

Both airports totally understaffed. Awful experience.

Pros: "Friendly crew, great access to a variety refreshments, robust entertainment library."
Cons: "No suggestions."
Pros: "Very nice airplane and pleasant crew"
Cons: "Klm is the best, even on a 40min they served small breakfast."
Pros: "The plane ✈️ itself the attendants . The entertainment on board. Really great"
Cons: "Nothing dissatisfying about the flight nor the airline staff . Very polite, very professional. It was a Great flight. For long trips this airline is one of the best."
Pros: "A flight was delayed due to weather conditions and we had to sit in the plane for almost an hour, BUT information sharing from the Capitan was sufficient and on-time. Very good job from pilots. Leg room in economy - I was positively surprised, very decent leg room! Thank you for providing it."
Cons: "I flew economy and all was good and appropriate to the level."
Pros: "Crew good and seat OK but not exceptional for business class"
Cons: "Food was average - main course could have been better. Range of movies ok but not great"
Pros: "I was sorted on Row 3 and the drapes kept hitting the back of my head."
Cons: "Move the drapes a few more inches back."
Pros: "The socks offered in business were comfortable and nice looking. The red wine was good."
Cons: "The food was just average and the seat not too comfortable"
Pros: "Flight and the crew!"
Cons: "Staff at the airport pushing you to upgrade to first class but not making it clear only the first trip from Athens to Amsterdam which the first class uses same uncomfortable seats as the economy to pay extra 130 euros ridiculous airfrance stuff! I should have flown all the way to NYC first class!!!"
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."
Cons: "Too hot inside the aircraft"
Cons: "We were allowed to choose our seats from SFO to Amsterdam but not for the return flight. I like to be able to choise my seats when I book the flight. Choosing seats 24 hours before is not convenient when traveling for the return trip."
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: "Like the overall KLM experience"
Cons: "Food could have had better quality and the stewardess served it all at once versus in the various courses."
Cons: "We were changed from KLM to Airiltalia without any information sent so only because I tried to check in did I find out the flight on KLM was cancelled and we were changed to Airitalia. The Airitalia flight was very mediocre."
Pros: "Amazing crew"
Cons: "The check in desk was late opening & the carry on luggage size was smaller than advertised on their website, so it had to be put in the hold. Open on time to prevent less stress to travelers & give more accurate information about cabin luggage."
Pros: "the crew was nice"
Cons: "Seat confort on long flights, leg rooms,"
Pros: "Crew was nice and efficient"
Cons: "Economy seats don’t recline enough."
Pros: "Quick flight"
Pros: "All good"
Cons: "Faultless handling of weather delay, causing missed connection and flight transfer. A well oiled machine, thank you."
Pros: "Time was excellent even considering a connection delay they had. Very polite crew members. Good entertainment options."
Cons: "Cabin was crowded. Leg room was scarce, short seating space. Almost no room for sleeping if you're not a frequent economy traveler."
Pros: "Best airline in the business quick efficient and outstanding service What else can you say"
Pros: "Flight duration"
Cons: "Very stingy with the drinks Cramped seats"
Pros: "Short flight and being able to escape from drunk belligerent Passenger on previous flight"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Friendly hostesses"
Cons: "Flight was delayed 3 hours"
Pros: "The service"
Cons: "The seats"
Pros: "Restrooms clean, decent food and drink, nice cabin crew."
Cons: "No complaints"
Pros: "Comfortable and well laid out seat area"
Cons: "Food was a little substandard for business class"
Pros: "The attendants took great care of us. Super smooth flight."
Pros: "Sandwich was incredibly tasty (although not much filling)"
Cons: "2 hours on the tarmac delayed with no explanation. Uncomfortable seats, no leg room. Poor management of seating, there was enough empty seats to have groups together but they were split up. Drinks served from a communal bottle in a polystyrene cup."
Pros: "Nothing"
Pros: "Very friendly staff"
Pros: "Boarding was a breeze and the staff were lovely. Online check was very simple and easy to navigate."
Cons: "The amount of extras you have to click no to while checking in online."
Pros: "The flight attendants could not do enough for you."
Cons: "Business class was pretty empty but again I was not allowed to change my seat selection online. Pathetic check-in."
Pros: "The supplied pack of toothpaste/toothbrush"
Cons: "That I was forced to check my baggage. I never received a chain ticket for my luggage. The flight has a 32 hour layover and KLM lost my luggage and it was not found until a week after my arrival back home. I still have not received my bag at this time. The boarding crew was manually tracking who boarded and who didn't. It was a cluster."
Pros: "The crew were just amazing, such lovely male stewards! They were helpful and friendly and generally wonderful."
Cons: "The entertainment was quite dated and didn't have new movies etc"
Pros: "Professional, friendly service. Punctual, safe flight. Comfortable, spotless airplane."
Cons: "What is there not to like about KLM? I cannot find anything."
Cons: "Flight delayed, had to take two more flights and was a four hour trip turned into a 12 hour, 4 countries trip"
Pros: "Flight attendants tried their best given what they had to work with."
Cons: "They can not retire these old Boeing 747's soon enough. Due to mechanical problems, our flight arrived at LAXfour and a half hours late and further problems with the cargo door caused an additional one hour delay of our take off."
Pros: "Friendliest economy class service I've ever encountered."
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: "Very friendly and the food and drinks never stopped and no additional charges, a very nice experience over the bargain airlines, free in-flight movies, and entertainment, no cost."
Cons: "No complaints."
Pros: "For an 8 hr flight...multiple snacks, 2 meals and continuous beverage service. Blanket, pillow amd movies."
Cons: "Watched flight attendant drop tongs on floor, pick them up and put them back in the bowl of buns and continue to use them to serve bums"
Pros: "Newer plane. Dimming windows, upgraded bathroom. Flight crew very pleasant."
Cons: "Boarding wasn't announced. Limited in flight movie selection. Food was average. Same dessert for both meals served."
Pros: "Excellent crew made this flight very enjoyable. A lot of information during the flight about the route, arrival times and clear explanation of the departure delay. Very friendly and attentive."
Cons: "Only 1 drinks round on a 3h flight."
Pros: "Flights left on time, arrived ahead of time. Seats comfortable. Baggage arrived quickly. No charge for wine/beer, although I do not imbibe when flying long distance. Food ok for airline food."
Cons: "Unable to pick seats in advance,, were assigned seats that did not recline for 11 hour flight. One bathroom not functioning. Very limited movie choices for inflight entertainment. Seat belts much shorter than other airlines, so very confining, unable to loosen to relax in any position other than sitting straight in seat. In Rome had to check in & go through security at Terminal 5 then get bussed to Terminal 3. Only airport where we had to take out all electronics, including converter plugs, headphones, etc, place in a flimsy clear plastic bag ( that broke ) to go through security. Line to check bags pretty slow for number of passengers. Glad we had plenty of time."

It was as comfortable as a 12 hour flight can be. The upgrade (premium economy) was the best idea I have ever had. I had trouble understanding all of the stewards accents so sometimes I would just nod my head yes or no and see what would happen. 🙃 The personal monitor kept me entertained. The one problem I had was getting a cup of hot water for my chamomile tea bag. It took 3 requests and 45 minutes. If that's the worst I'd say, "good job British!"

All was good for the most part. The music selection was real poor. I tried to listen to country and the songs were like from a playlist and not current but new singers. The selection was VERY limited. The movies were limited too.

Delay. Long wait in line. Poor communications.

On my flight from Cape Town to London I was not notified that the flight had changed and missed the flight. British Airways would not help with a different flight and basically said I need to buy another ticket and fight for a refund. I need to speak with someone to get this resolved and reimbursed for the additional ticket I had to buy along with extra COVID tests I had to take, not to mention additional hotel stay and missed income from work. Please contact me as soon as possible.

It was cancelled and I was forced to buy another ticket.

Pozitive

Held us in a separate room including me who is single mother traveled with 2 year old for 3 flights in the row. My son didnt get his meal. Also had to ask for any juice. Horrible menu. Late food serving, but quick to clean up in a rash. Loud people on phones and nobody stopped them. Horrible experience."

Pros: "The crew members are super friendly and caring."
Pros: "The crew were very attentive and there was a large variety of in-flight entertainment."

Pros: "Comfort"
Cons: "Wifi access"
Pros: "Good service"
Cons: "Old plane, no power chargers, cold during the flight"

Pros: "Plane kept to time schedule fabulous"
Cons: "Traveling economy"
Pros: "Crew, boarding process, food, cleanliness, movie choices were all good."
Cons: "There should still be more leg room in coach. The screen in just my seat had a "loose connection", as it was a bit blurry sometimes -- enough to be annoying, but I still watched a movie OK. No other screens around me had the problem; they were crystal-clear."
Pros: "Efficient processes. All went to plan"
Cons: "Tight seating. Old plane. Entertainment screen sub par"
Pros: "Quick and efficient boarding."
Cons: "The way that the crew (both in economy on right of plane) spoke to, and handled sensitive situations with several of the passengers in a loud and rather rude manner. This is not the British way that I have been accustomed to on previous BA flights, and is rather upsetting. The crew were very abrupt in general, and did not have that seasoned and polite demeanor which I expect from BA."
Pros: "We had a horrible experience with BA customer service located somewhere....in the world! Couldn't even communicate in Eng...."

Cons: "Nothing. Was a smooth and friendly flight. Cabin crew were courteous and efficient."
Cons: "They sent an email with security requirements regarding electronics saying they can only be carried in checked in luggage and at the airport refused to accept any electronics in carry on or checked in."
Cons: "Took forever to serve cold drinks and food. Said we were going to have a short flight due to tail wind so they would not serve hot drinks. Mean while we landed at the expected time of arrival."

Cons: "They were awful"
Cons: "Bring more than 30mind sitting on the plane waiting for a slot to take off despite boarding on time"
