Airline reviews

Pros: "Excellent crew, who make each person important."
Cons: "Being in economy nothing the crew could do would make it better, however as I have said before Emirates miles rewards should be continue not be lost after a certain time."

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: "The seat was not up to the usual Emirates business class standard. The lights were never completely dimmed."

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."

Cons: "Very poorly organized boarding"

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.."
Cons: "I didn't like the long delay to stay in the airport on hard chairs before leaving Cape Town. The delay affected all the other connections with long periods of stay in the airports. The whole flight was rough, being shaken all the time."

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."

Cons: "crew doesn’t seem to talk to each other. advised multiple times that my touch screen didn’t work and that i didn’t want the jain meal. your check-in interface does not allow changing food preferences. this should change"

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.)"

Pros: "Extremely courteous personnel at airprot IMECABLE service on board Plane brand new"
Cons: "That I had top travel to FLL ibnstead of Miami"

Pros: "The Crew on Emirates are just the best in the industry"

Cons: "Bad terminal atmosphere. Hot and dirty. Pool management transportation to airplan. Man in black suit officer bad manner for service."

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: "The cabin crew always smiled and were friendly. At no time did it appear that they were just pretending to be enjoying their job. They worked with great effectiveness."
Cons: "The sandwich served with mayonnaise and chicken was at room temperature. It didn't set well with my stomach. The plane landed and then parked so far away from the terminal. It took a half hour to exit the plane, board the non-air conditioned bus, and arrive at the terminal. The shuttle bus was extremely uncomfortable!"

Pros: "Very comfortable and good service aboard plane."
Cons: "Very long ride on bus from plane to terminal in DubaI. Very unusual and uncomfortable."

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: "Everything!!!!!"

Pros: "The reception at Dubai and delivery to the hotel. Friendly crew. Toilet regularly cleaned"

Pros: "Great plane (new) Good food Boarding was very very smooth"
Cons: "The crew was OK, some of them where a little "grumpy" There was no WiFi on the plane (not even paid, although I asked again and again). The excuse was that the plane was new and they did not have the time to install WiFi..... the bad thing is that I was counting on the paid version to keep up with work (as I did on the other flight) but was unable and there was not prior notification on that."

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."

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."

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: "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."

Pros: "Стьюарды"
Cons: "Ничего"

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: "Nothing"

The seat in front of me when reclined left an unusually small space in front of my face. I was very uncomfortable. I'm a small person weighs 145 lb. this was my fourth flight with Turkish Airlines and was the worst. My wife next to me in the middle seat was fortunate that the passenger in front of her did not recline her seat."

Pros: "Extras provided - eye mark, socks etc"

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.

Seats were more cramped than most airlines (and I'm short)."

Pros: "Complimentary travel kit was a life saver."

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: "Not trying to be flattering here but it really is a good airline."

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: "It was not immediately apparent that boarding was in a completely different terminal which was accessible by train, so this lack of info could have cost me arriving in good time as I thought I had sufficient time. I aldo found ground staff at the customer service desk very unsympathetic and unhelpful when I asked for assistance on grounds of ill health. They were quite condescending ."

Pros: "Great crew"

Cons: "Touch screens were not working well. Required multiple hard taps which disturbed the passenger in front."

Cons: "There was no downside."

Cons: "I was called the night before saying our flight was overbooked will you change flights for 300.00 dollars each. We needed to get home so we turned their offer down. The day of the flight our connection flight was delayed we were told someone would escort several of the passengers from Lufthansa to the connection with United no one was there. Several of us ran to where the flight gate was but the plane already left. It turns out other people were also called and turned down United’s offer. So the question is since our flight was purposely overbooked did United take advantage of our situation and just leave and cause all of us great pain and duress with no compensation for all of our inconvenience."

Cons: "First flight was delayed too much for me to make a connecting flight to Frankfurt. Had to ask twice to be rebooked. Had to connect through Chicago O'Hare and walk for miles there. Arrived in Germany 3 hours behind schedule."

Pros: "Good crew and food!"
Cons: "I reserved this flight months in advance, but were given seats in the last row, next to the restrooms, when there were other seats available. In the United part of this trip, they let me reserve my seats when I paid."

Pros: "nice clean plane"
Cons: "the wifi is free but doesn‘t work. flynet app didn‘t pair"

Pros: "Overall it was a good flight."
Cons: "The dessert could have been better than a Kit Kat chocolate bar."

Cons: "One crew member oversaw me several times when distributing beverages because the gentlemen next to me ordered two, and she assumed he's ordering for me (which he didn't). She explained herself, but didn't apologize but made it sound like it was my fault. When I ordered 2 beverages (wine and water), she said she doesn't have time to hand out two beverages to each passenger."

Pros: "Waiting area needs upgrade...40 minute flight, no time for food or entertainment..."

Pros: "I used to travel on Lufthansa almost exclusively until I had a very disturbing incident in Munich with a flight attendant. I refused to fly Lufthansa for quite a few years after that. That being said, the crew were attentive to passengers and the meals were reasonable. The seats were more comfortable than on LOT and Austrian. There were quite a few decent choices among the media during the flight."
Cons: "During my flight, my cell phone turned on at some point and downloaded some emails using the airplane's data connection. I will be needlessly charged for this. Once I noted that I was logged on, I tried to see if I could do other stuff before quickly logging off. It seems like it was totally worthless."

Pros: "Nothing so far"
Cons: "incoming flight was delayed by 1 hour, ensuring that we missed our connecting flight from FRA to BOS. Lufthansa staff could have already booked me on a next flight instead of having me go to a service desk and NOT being able to get me on a flight - I had to make my own arrangements while calling the Lufthansa help line.... Not a big fan of the airline and will try to avoid as much as I can."

Pros: "The food and drinks was very good."
Cons: "The flight was late."

Pros: "Flight from Budapest to Munich was slightly delayed and I had a tight connection time to begin with. The effort the Lufthansa staff made to get me to me connection was heroic."

Cons: "Regular economy felt a little cramped."

Pros: "Quality of service, personable flight attendants, comfortable seats, decent food quality."
Cons: "Entertainment system is average at best. More current and popular options for music and movies should be included. My system quit working during the flight and did not return to operation."

Cons: "Sitting in a plane on a long flight but the staff made it easier and the entertainment options were very good."

Pros: "...and not for the first time.. And won't be the last.."
Cons: "Wifi onboard wasn't working.."

Cons: "The touch screen did not work properly"

Pros: "Yes"
Cons: "Nothing. Flight was amazing"

Pros: "Information sharing by pilots and crew. Economy class leg room is good."
Cons: "All good up to the level"

Cons: "Keep the temperature at a more reasonable level. Blankets + two layers of clothing was definitely not enough."

Cons: "A little bit chaotic when they loaded two planes at the same time in a very tight space in Amsterdsm but this was most likey an airport soecific design issue and not a KLM issue. The flight was as good as can be expected fir an international flight. The staff was great"

Pros: "Seat was uncomfortable. There was nothing to like. In past I have traveled by KLM but this time it was worst."
Cons: "No proper food service. Even to the passenger of Amsterdam no dinner was served. No inflight service. It looks like domestic flight. I will think twice to travel by KLM. The check-in staff at counter was absolutely arrogant. Staff ar boarding gate was nice."

Pros: "Crew was amazing. They adjusted the seating arrangements so there was an empty seat in every row to give passengers more space. Very thoughtful and much appreciated. They served delicious meals, snacks, and water. They provided headphones, blankets and pillows. They took very good care of us."

Pros: "Everything was smooth and effortless."
Cons: "Can’t think of anything."

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: "Nothing"
Cons: "They check for everything in the counter as if it was a low cost airline. If you go a kilo more over your baggage allowance you have to pay 100 eur. And for your cabin luggage you only have 12 kg that they check you twice and they have security staff at the airport specifically check in this."

Cons: "We were told they were holding our flight, we ran 3 terminals and they’d already left."

Cons: "I booked tickets via Delta, operated by KLM. They lost both of my check in bags in September, and it happened again today for the same scheduled flights. Had 4 hours of layover and KLM still wasn’t able to manage it."

Pros: "Very good service, teh flight attendants made it as pleasant as possible, plane left on time"
Cons: "tough to sit on a plane for 9.5 hours"

Cons: "Not enough leg room"

Pros: "Nothing to mention"
Cons: "Crew was rude when I asked if there was a vegetarian option for the snack. I did request special meals for the trip. Even if they did not have a vegetarian option, they don't need to be rude!! Boarding was ridiculous. we were supposed to form a line and wait. Would have been a lot better if they boarded by seat numbers. Also they made me check in my fairly small and light carry on bag resulting in its contents arriving broken!"

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."

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

Pros: "Nice flight ...was comfortable travel ...good food.Thanks"
Cons: "No such things"

Cons: "Food had only vegetarian choices. No charging place and ambiance was noisy"

Pros: "The cabin crew was so kind, efficient, and attentive. All meals and snacks were delicious."

Pros: "Entertainment"
Cons: "Food and one bathroom out of service makes an awful flight"

Cons: "... ear plugs, masks, good food or even picking seats? I remember when it was all complementary and standard on overnight flights. Oh, and the vegetarian breakfast was unfortunately poor as well. I know you can do better, because you used to."

Pros: "He missed it due to having a 32 minute layover, which he ran all the way to board."
Cons: "he had no choice but to look at the closed door of his flight, and wait an additional 7 hours and they didn't even give him a voucher for food. I'm his mother, I'm currently visiting family in Scotland, so couldn't help him much. I'm pretty disgusting and disappointed by the whole experience."

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

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

Pros: "Cabin crew were very professional."
Cons: "Aircraft returned to gate due to fault and was delayed for 45 min."

Pros: "Food was just fine, movie selection very good"
Cons: "Uncomfortable seat cushions, lights were truned on too early (1.5 hours before flight landed)"

Pros: "Short flight with good communication."
Cons: "Nil to complain."

Pros: "Decent seat size. Sorta slept the whole flight."

Cons: "Bag was lost"

Pros: "The supplied pack of toothpaste/toothbrush"

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: "The crew service is impeccable. Ground services very friendly and professional."
Cons: "The seats are very uncomfortable. The individual screens are simply outdated like you basically will damage your eyes looking at them. No chargers for phones."

Cons: "They didn’t let us board the plane. Allegedly the plane was changed and make us travel by train!! They offered us a compensation but we haven’t heard from them yet. Not good experience at all."

Pros: "Free wee cake."
Cons: "Nothing in particular."

Pros: "The staff and crew"
Cons: "Nothing"

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"

Pros: "No entertainment or food needed on a half hour flight. Otherwise excellent."
Cons: "Nothing​"

Cons: "sardines!"

Pros: "My air hostess was very friendly and kind"
Cons: "Food for vegetarians"

Cons: "4 hs delay"

Cons: "No assistance to mothers with strollers. While boarding, picked a few people randomly to inspect our bags right before getting on a plane. 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 flight was on time and landed early"
Cons: "The bags could have come out earlier and the food could be better"

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."
Cons: "I am not a heavy set guy but the seats were unreasonably close to each other, this meant that when you eat a meal your elbows push into your sides making it hard to bring food to your mouth."

Cons: "Didn't make it to this flight due to problems described in aforementioned flight (madrid to London). Was stranded in London overnight."

Cons: "Very narrow seats"

Cons: "Seating is a big problem. I am only 192 cm tall and cannot really fit my legs into the space. Have them out in the corridor"

Pros: "That the flight was on time."
Cons: "not applicable."

Cons: "Seat was broken. Reclines without requesting. Tray also needs attention. Seat 15C"

Pros: "Friendly crew and a good value for money flight"
Cons: "Very bumpy ride but this wasn’t anyone’s fault"

Pros: "We pushed back from the gate about 24 minutes late and arrived at our destination about 38 minutes late. The four-course dinner (Chicken Tikka Masala or Penne Pasta) was good for airline food. The crew was friendly and professional."
Cons: "No USB power ports by the seats."

Pros: "Staff was kind and curteous"
Cons: "Very crowded, sat 2.5 hours on the tarmac. Air was not functioning in back two sections, bathroom overcrowded. Went to the forward bathroom and airconditioning running strong and bathrooms not in use. I think that in an emergency situation, all passengers should be treated with respect. Letting customers use the bathrooms in business class and receiving the same airconditioning would have been humane."

Pros: "Crew was attentive to all passengers."
Cons: "None"

Pros: "Service was excellent"
Cons: "Entertainment system getting a bit long in the tooth on 747. Hot breakfast could have done with some colour"

Pros: "BA in South Africa run a clean efficient airline. Planes are new crew well trained and food is good."
Cons: "Preseating totally random no matter your status. Booked state of my choice well in advance and was presented at the back of the plane on check-in"

Pros: "Crew polite and accommodating. Food OK"
Cons: "Flight delayed 2 hours on tarmac. Reason unclear. Seats uncomfortable and shabby. Entertainment system down for large part of trip. Window shade difficult to open. Plane needs upgrade."

Pros: "Crew was helpful and polite."

Pros: "No hassle with hand luggage"

Pros: "Definitely the best flight so far."

Pros: "The crew"
Cons: "Landing was not as smooth."

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: "Let’s face it, B.A has proper service with friendly crew members, offered up grade to premium economy which I normally take and was more than happy to pay for."

Pros: "Your staff were truly excellent, helpful and engaging."
Cons: "My TV worked only intermittently and I therefore could not relax and enjoy the entertainment..."

Pros: "Staff at Heathrow was professional and efficient. Staff on board was professional and friendly as well."

Pros: "Good documentary films to choose from to pass time."

Pros: "Good amount of legroom, no issues with boarding etc. Food was fine and lots of snacks available if you knew where to look for them."
Cons: "Not the friendliest crew. Large film selection but not the best choice of new releases. Quite action focused."

Pros: "Crew was very efficient and polite."
Cons: "Very early flight for London. Very crowded. Boarding methods are once again slow by design. All the card holders get priority boarding , causing delays in general boarding do to folk standing around while putting stuff away."

Pros: "Made up for time due to a big tail wind"
Cons: "Took off late and had to wait 45 minutes for luggage"

Cons: "Paying $7000+ For a seat like this is a travesty"

Pros: "Flight was on time,actually ahead of time."
Cons: "Aircon was not efficient. Very hot in the plane."

Pros: "We got to Barcelona safely"
Cons: "Paying for something basic to drink is something you'd espect on Spirit airlines not British Airways. The cabin crew and gate agents were rude and inconsistent with their behavior. They used to be full of class and unfortunately they are now trash. If I have other choices I will most certainly not choose BA."

Pros: "Strong tailwind brought us in 30mins ahead of schedule."
Cons: "Nothing. Was a smooth and friendly flight. Cabin crew were courteous and efficient."

Cons: "Unfortunately I am allergic to all the food they offered .I wish the served a plain chicken or plain turkey.Everything was spicy or mixed with a pesto or curry. They need to something that is served completely plain ."

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: "No direct communication. Really bad"

Cons: "They were awful"
