Pros: "Crew was excellent"
Cons: "Better seat cushions"
Read more about Singapore Airlines
Pros: "Crew was excellent"
Cons: "Better seat cushions"
Pros: "Flexible seating due to only very few passengers. On time departure and arrival"
Cons: "Entertainment and access to Wifi"
Pros: "Great inflight entertainment"
Cons: "Have WiFi that is working"
Cons: "Terrible"
Pros: "The staff was amazing"
Pros: "The crew was very helpful and courteous."
Cons: "The flight was delayed and I decreased my time in Singapore"
Cons: "For business class SQ, the crew service was severely sub-par. Seat arrangement same as in bigger 777, so actual space is much shorter and therefore uncomfortable for sleeping and lounging."
Pros: "I didn't like the trip much. After the trip we found out that our body was bitten by fleas. Our body is now full of rashes, every part of my body is so itchy. We was seated in 61A and 61C, seems like in the previous flight a dog was sitting there or some kind of animal that left fleas in the sit."
Cons: "Please clean better the seats. This is unacceptable, not a good way to start a trip in Japan. We only hope to get better sitting in our last flight with SQ, from Japan to LA."
Cons: "WiFi didn’t work on 3 of the 4 flights although all purportedly had it. Also didn’t work the majority of the time in the Business Class Lounge in Singapore. Food was mediocre both on flights and in the lounge. Movie selection could hardly have been worse."
Pros: "The crew was terrific. Always smiling and helpful."
Cons: "If you need more space economy is a tight fit. It would be better to upgrade."
Cons: "Flat bed in business class was disappointing. No way anyone taller than 6’ could stretch out. Overall, it was an inferior experience to business class on Cathay Pacific, which sets the standard IMO."
Pros: "Flight was very pleasant and enjoyable, on time for both departure and arrival."
Cons: "Meals were served rather slow as we were last for row 45 but there was insufficient time for us to finish the meal, collection of trays started in 5 minutes time"
Pros: "Great crew and cabin!"
Cons: "Meals were just ok"
Pros: "Entertainment system ok"
Cons: "Change if gate 30 minutes before departure and no info at old gate. New gate very far away, terrible for old people."
Cons: "Cramped seats, no leg room, horrible food, stupid COLD snack!"
Pros: "Excellent service"
Cons: "More tasty snacks throughout the flight"
Pros: "Extra leg room, great service and good food."
Cons: "The entertainment system feels dated (no touch screen) manual rewinding of movies, selection of movies"
Pros: "everything in suite class"
Pros: "The customer service at the Check-in, the flight attendants, the movies and the meals. More than my expectations! Will definitely use Singapore Air in the future in my travelings! Will recommend it to my circle of friends and relatives! Thank you very much. You are the best airline I've used since 1976!"
Cons: "Nothing."
Pros: "Space in economy seat was good. Huge selection of movies. Food was tasty. On flights to Frankfurt, Singapore Airlines may want to keep more sparkling water in stock, as Europeans prefer this to still water."
Cons: "There was a smell in the plane when I first arrived like vomit. It may have been the cleaning supplies."
Pros: "check in went smoothly. helper was friendly and helpful."
Pros: "Easy red eye flight, just slept the whole way"
Cons: "Singapore airline is always awesome. Crew professional and very caring"
Pros: "In general it was all very good - I flew Premium Economy but I didn’t see much difference at all between that and Economy. There was a bit more leg room but that was about it, Having said that Singapore Airlines overall is pretty good - toilets kept nice and clean and everyone well taken care of."
Pros: "Friendly and helpful crew. Efficient service and good boarding. Seemingly wider seats than the newer A350s."
Cons: "Positively ancient entertainment system with poor selection and bad visual quality. Ads pop up every time you go into another menu. If you're flying SIN->BNE I'd avoid the 7.20am departure, you'll get the old 777-200s rather than the A350s they run on other departures."
Pros: "Arrived"
Cons: "Boarding a mess, 30% boarded as "business". Food terrible. Entertainment system doesn't work on a lot of seats as plane is very old. Cabin crew not able to handle the passengers, delayed in every aspect and forget to serve passengers. Shitty flight and service."
Pros: "What can I say about a flight of this length? Its always an epic journey to go from the US to Asia. However I will say that with Singapore Airlines things are a lot easier. Excellent crew who were always willing to help with my fondness for a beer. Food was as expected and up to the standard of Singapore Airlines. All round it was a long trip made a lot easier......5 stars."

Pros: "Everything"

Pros: "Helpful crew. Full food service!"
Pros: "The on-board crew was polite and humble. Food served was delicious and the flight reached on time."

Pros: "The food was great!"

At any time I was supported by the staff and even if it was busy they constantly had a kindness and smile in their face. I don't fly with any other airline on long distance flights! It was clean and neat on top at any time. I love flying with Singapore airlines. I feel safe and in good hands all around. This is how service should be at any airline! It is never less good but a constant since years! Thank you"
Cons: "There is nothing I did not like."

Good service

It was hot inside the plane and the boarding was very crowded. But the seat comfort, and entertainment are spectacular

The seats are congested.

Qatar is undoubtedly the best airline in the world. Very impressed with their all around service and customer care.

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: "Crew were so much helpful, really appreciate, my wife got sick, they have been amazing"

Cons: "I can't think of anything that wasn't good."
Cons: "No gate for departure or arrival. No business class longe in Cape Town."
Pros: "The crew was really sweet and making sure passengers were comfortable."
Pros: "The crew was great."
Cons: "Food wasn't that great."
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: "From new York to Doha flight seats are not that comfortable."
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."
Pros: "The seat was comfortable, and food was very nice."
Cons: "Nothing I could think of"
Pros: "The crew was good. Good movie selection."
Cons: "The food. The vegetarian meals were both noodles. And the meals were not very healthy. Too high calorie. I couldn’t figure out how to customize my meals On the Qatar app"

Cons: "There nothing could have been better cause everything is perfect"
Pros: "Friendly and beautiful crew (specially one air hostess) lol"
Cons: "too long flight"
Pros: "Nice airplane, great crew."
Cons: "Beef stroganoff was terrible"
Pros: "Excellent seats..."
Pros: "Boarding was great as well as comfort and crew. the flight was ok"
Cons: "however there was no internet and bad entertainment. You couldnt really navigate on Oryx One and it was hard to select the autoplay or map. There was no remote unlike the B787 between MAN and DOH. Pre-download things on laptops, tablets, phones or whatever ifyou are not going to sleep on the flight. It also took 3 hours because of UAE and Qatar :("
Pros: "Nice,clean, efficient"
Cons: "The movie selection was not the best. There were a lot of choices but not that many newer popular ones"
Pros: "Good service."
Cons: "Poor choice of entertainment."
Pros: "Overall a good service with good food."
Cons: "When flying from New Zealand to Doha, we departed Auckland at 15h25 and due to the time zone, most passengers body clocks would have been expecting sleep within a few hours. However we were flying West and thus into daylight. Sadly the window seated passengers were not asked to close their window blinds to block out the sunlight and many were left open. This made the cabin very bright and a difficult environment in which to sleep. Too much advertising before the on board videos, but otherwise content was good."
Pros: "I enjoyed my flight,it was a smooth trip from Doha to Manila, the Cabin Crew received adequate training on taking care of people, as a professional nurse who is use to taking care of others ,I see someone else looking after me and I really appreciate their efforts. Shortly before we landed at Manila, we were informed that in order to meet international flight rules and regulations that insecticide will be sprayed we were advised to cover our nose,as a medical personnel I see it not good cos it can trigger an Asthmatic attack in a known asthmatic patient ,it was a lovely journey"
Cons: "I enjoyed their meal and services wanted to be Oliver Twist"
Pros: "The 17hr flight went relatively quickly. Much faster than expected."
Cons: "The long wait between flights and finding a scheduled flight before mine that I could have taken."
Pros: "Flight duration was short"
Cons: "Nothing in particular"
Cons: "Qatar Airlines charged us a 600 Euro fee for missing a flight even though we contacted them before to explain the circumstances beyond our control."
Pros: "everything"
Cons: "nothing"
Pros: "comfortable"
Cons: "nothing"
Pros: "I actually loved everything about the entire flight experience. Everything was awesome (Minus a 1-hour airport delay that was out of control of the airlines)."
Cons: "Nothing. Seriously. Tasty food, good movie selection, plenty of legroom, pleasant flight attendants, comfortable seats... good stuff. :)"
Cons: "Extremely small leg pitch"
Pros: "Good legroom, friendly crew."
Pros: "clean airline, modern airplanes, good food, friendly service"
Cons: "Nothing not to like. Spacing between seats is a little tight for med-tall passengers. Food service was slow. few/Infrequent additional beverage & snack visits."
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: "Upgrade to business class was a nice gesture and the service was impeccable.."
Cons: "Just a tad delayed in getting off the plane...not sure what took unexpectedly long"
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: "Doha airport is easy to move through; They put me in an exit row behind a bulkhead has plenty of legroom."
Cons: "Reading light wasn't aimed properly, and there was nowhere to put anything because of it being an exit row behind a bulkhead. That meant, that I had to hold anything I wanted during take-off, and landing, and the entertainment system had to be stowed during those times as well, so I couldn't even listen to music as the only controls were the touchscreen."
Pros: "I liked the open space not fully booked flight. Nice leg room and lots of choices of shows to watch"
Cons: "Not quite enough space if I were sitting alone. Men pee on toilet seats"
Pros: "Staffs were helpful!"
Cons: "Food portion can be improved."
Pros: "Qatar has an amazing service. The staff is impecable, the food is great, they take care of each detail. Business class is superb. They make the bed, give you a complimentary pitada and moisture lotion. Can't be better than that."
Pros: "Didnt have food My mother has diabetes and she had one meal in her 14 hr flight Unacceptable"
Cons: "Meal plan customer service"
Cons: "It was all good"
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "One of bags was missing and I came to know this only after waiting until the last bag. The staff knew that my bag did not make it out of Doha. It would have been nice if I was informed as soon as I landed so I did not have to wait for an hour unnecessarily. And the paperwork to report the missing baggage was totally Chaotic. Whoever barged to the counter and was aggressive got priority and taking down the details and giving us a receipt. This is probably my 5 or 6 flight in Qatar and it seems that you guys are slipping up as Emirates had done. Hope you don't."
Pros: "Same"
Cons: "I understand it's the industry standard, but seats are too narrow with shared armrests."
Pros: "Comfort"
Cons: "Food"
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"
Pros: "The flight service was great. We had a slight delay on the way back to Doha from Heathrow but they made up for it by getting us through security faster so I didn't miss my flight to Tokyo. Overall the timing was excellent and I got home without having to fork out any extra money."
Cons: "Song selections"
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."
Cons: "Tv and food"
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)."
Cons: "Airport arrival experience at passport control was terrible"
Cons: "All good"
Pros: "The entertainment option was pretty good"
Cons: "There's very limited legroom on this plane."
Pros: "Love the food, service and movies."
Pros: "Both flights on my round trip from SFO to IST, we’re decent and as comfortable as can be expected. Kudos to a great staff. The food was decent, and the complimentary comfort kit was a nice touch as was the cologne spray in the bathroom. Tessekur Ederiz!"
Cons: "The 13 hours of flying! Lol, that’s just part of the deal when flying, I dont Have anything to complain about."
Pros: "Everything went perfect."
Cons: "Even though it’s only a 4 hours direct flight, They lost my baggage!!!"
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: "Friendly staff, decent meals, comfortable seating"
Cons: "Istanbul airport- needs major refurbishment"
Cons: "The Turkish government not allowing me to use my ticket."
Pros: "Turkish Airlines always has decent food and entertainment."
Cons: "An hour late with no apologies. And seats are so small, the people sitting next to me were so large that I didn’t have enough room."
Pros: "Excellent food Friendly staff who are willing to help"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Confort"
Cons: "None"
Pros: "the crow"
Pros: "It seemed like an old model airplain, didn't get enough space. It was so tight."
Cons: "Seats were terrible!"
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"
Cons: "The service on Turkish airlines was not friendly or helpful. The food was not quality, or food tasting. The entertainment didn't include a lot of movies at all. One of the flights did even give headphones. The staff wasn't rude and not helpful, and didn't make the flight comfortable. I had high hopes flying with Turkish Airlines for the first time, but I was thoroughly disappointed with everything."
Cons: "I had my flight from London to Istanbul delayed and because I had connection flight in Istanbul to Russia they had to change my flight for the next day . That ruined my whole holidays and I had to go all the way home from Gatwick airport and next morning going again to Heathrow airport. No transfer or taxi was provided and No single apology from the staff or company . Very disappointed with Turkish airlines !"
Cons: "Business class seat was flat but slanted."
Pros: "Food and service were fine, plenty of movie choices on the screen, nice goody bag with slippers, ear plugs, eye mask, etc . . ."
Cons: "Turkish Airlines website is the worst I've ever used. Embarrassingly bad, really."
Pros: "Food was tasty and fresh but staff cold and aloof"

Pros: "They shipped my dog from Tel Aviv perfectly. No problems."
Cons: "The laptops and Ipads are removed from the cabin"
Pros: "Service.. questions answered. food"
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: "Excellent service, staff and food. All flights ran smooth, food and beverages were great and service from the crew was beyond great. During the fight, besides the food and drinks, we had lots of entertainment and games in the tv devices. I will definitely fly with Turkish Airlines again in the future."
Pros: "comfortable seats space for legs"
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 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: "The flight itself wasn't bad, we got a meal on each flight and the crew was charming."
Cons: "I had a trip with one connection, from Tel Aviv to Milan. The flight from Tel Aviv was delayed, which coused the connection flight to be delayed. Also, and most importantly, they've left my luggage in Istanbul (where the connection was from), so that I was left with no proper clothes/essentials for four (!) days (and it was colder than expected in Italy)."
Pros: "My travel mate left her phone on the plane at one point flying from Munich to Ataturk airport and the women at the lost and found counter were very helpful in getting the device back."
Cons: "The food on a couple of the flights was very strange/not hot/not good."
Pros: "entertainment"
Cons: "Seating too narrow"
Pros: "Flight had only 10 minute delay and only an hour layover. Boarding was pleasent"
Cons: "As expected food wasn't that good, the crew was a little slow, and seemed like didn't care that much about passengers individual needs."
Pros: "You really get great treatment in economy. Food is good, no nickel-and-diming for drinks, inflight entertainment package is very very good - just a great experience."
Pros: "The food was very good and the service excellent."
Pros: "food, enterttainment"
Cons: "too small legroom"
Cons: "Waiting time was too long between 2 flights"

The last time I flew to Italy it was on Delta. They were wonderful. Food was good and abundant, and the staff was friendly. The passengers were also friendly. Lufthansa was just the opposite. I won't be flying with that airline again. Sorry.

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

We were not able to go ! So we didn’t fly at all. We canceled flights months ago with Kayak

Cons: "The entertainment did not work good the entire flight"
Cons: "Beef main course overcooked and dry."
Pros: "Planes were comfortable and well maintained."
Pros: "Great service. Lovely crew."
Cons: "Legroom was pretty tight, and im short."
Cons: "The food"
Cons: "No proper wheel chair assistant and made passenger miss the flight. Airlines have to take extra steps to make wheel chair passengers to reach the gate safely and on time."
Pros: "The crew was excellent and the seats are v comfortable"
Cons: "I cant really think of anything"
Cons: "Touch screens were not working well. Required multiple hard taps which disturbed the passenger in front."
Pros: "This was our return flight back to the US much better then going to Europe!"
Cons: "The only thing i wish all airlines would consider is to give us regular folks more room(space) not just the rich people in business or first class! On a 10+hr flight it is well needed!"
Pros: "on time."
Cons: "nothing"
Pros: "Short flight but staff very attentive, food good."
Pros: "So very comfortable with lots of room. The mattress pads for the seats were a nice touch."
Cons: "Food was mediocre."
Pros: "there is a big amount of space between the rows making sitting very comfortable"
Cons: "lack of ventilation above the heads"

Cons: "I was put on stand by because the flight was overbooked even though my reservations were confirmed by you, why?"
Cons: "Seat!!!!!!!!"
Pros: "Crew and service was amazing"
Cons: "No entertainment food Horrible"
Pros: "There were blankets and pillows for every seat. There are USB ports at each seat as well as headphone plugs."
Pros: "Nice crew, good flight."
Cons: "45 minute delay was tough."
Pros: "It's not only pilot/auto-pilot or only weather dependent for sure, but ride was extremely smooth. landing was fantastic. Entertainment options were great. Crew was friendly and attentive. Sucks for LH, but I had to one sitting next to me on the 8-hour flight! no crying babies, no snoring. yiey!"
Cons: "Maybe US is ahead, but my experience with 2 terminals at Hanover and Frankfurt was that information exchange isn't good. Gate number was available at the last hour or so, which then got changed. Not just this flight. many flocks of people were running around to find their new gate... also as I mentioned climbing several stories of stairs with carry-on isn't fun! Not on this flight, but on my initial departure from US to FRA, monitors said go to Gate B. I got in line for Gate B as there was some security check, then we were told there was another B?!@ We had to go down and take the bus for that...written.. No where!"
Pros: "Friendly crew and great food. Didn't have to wait long to be boarded."
Pros: "Good service, good IFE, smooth, great cabin crew, no complaints."
Pros: "Crew and entertainment options"
Cons: "Passengers gathering against crew instructions. Large group behind me was loud and inconsiderate."
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."
Pros: "Great service, comfy plane, smooth ride."
Pros: "Luthansa flight was very good. On time, and best quality"
Pros: "All good - flight, service all great!!!"
Cons: "Right before boarding I checked to see about purchasing an upgrade to business for my Wife and I because she was not feeling well and the added room would help. The Rude desk clerk didn’t even check and just spit out no upgrades. Yet once on the plane there were several empty business class seats and they stayed empty the entire flight."
Pros: "I usually love flying Lufthansa - my favourite by far. It usually out-classes emirates in the economy class, and they usually appreciate the destination (in this case, Saudi Arabia - serving beer and other alcohol regularly). This time, on LH 598, they were suboptimal. The service was OK but I felt judged for asking for beer throughout the flight. The food was bland and the speed of service was “ok” at best. There were some good things - Warsteiner is an amazing beverage. When the attendents did approach, they were generally nice. Additionally, the entertainment package was reasonably good. I usually have to decide between emirates, QA, and Lufthansa. I would still say Lufthansa, but a note to them: please don’t let it slip. You’re a solid carrier and you have great service."
Cons: "-speed of service -feeling judged for having beers -one rude flight attendant -suboptimal food"
Pros: "Slept through a meal and was given one when I woke up. Very friendly staff. Smooth flight and landing."
Cons: "Movie selection rather limited"
Pros: "The crew were good, polite and attentive."
Cons: "Getting through security and to the gate was downright bizzare. We were directed to the special F gate, where we had to stand in the freezing rain in front of a locked door without any explanation. This is after already packing our jackets in. Then we got screened and just as randomly told to go to the main terminal, where we got screened a second time, just as stringently (pulling everything out, padding down the kids). No explanations whatsoever, the craziest experience, completely messed our plans to get a bite up, I wish we were given some information ahead of time that we are going to be sitting in a single room zone. The flight was ok, but hellishly hot all the way."
Pros: "hot food and some complimentary alcoholic beverages"
Pros: "Seat and service on board"
Cons: "It was difficult to watch the movies. Some of them were stuck and couldn't be played. Only after a while they "unlocked"."
Pros: "Air hostess J. Haupt was the friendliest of all. She made the flight definitely more enjoyable."
Cons: "Everything was good."
Pros: "I really don't remember. I slept through the entire flight."
Cons: "They boarded us from the back and the front of the plane so at one point you had people trying to pass each other in the aisles. Weird. That could've been handled better. Also, people were allowed to put their back packs in the over head so didn't leave much room for luggsge carry on. Flight attendants weren't helpful either. One just said that all carry on should be able to under the seat."
Pros: "Flight was on time. Boarding was efficient"
Cons: "Food and beverages were pretty stingy"
Pros: "I felt they did everything to leave on time. Flight was smooth and felt safe. Crew was nice. Overall good experience."
Cons: "The one annoying thing was my laugage. It took 3 days to arrive."
Pros: "Just. O k regarding. foof"
Pros: "Great seats, with legroom and ample food."
Cons: "N/A"
Pros: "nothing very special but it was on time."
Cons: "It was ok"
Pros: "The movie options where not great."
Cons: "Movie options."
Pros: "The fight left on time and got us to Frankfurt"
Pros: "Most of all."
Cons: "The headphone connection method. It is difficult to replace the headphone w/ your own because the connector is located deep in the headphone compartment and you cannot see it in easily. As far as you use the built-in headphones, no problem."
Pros: "Entertainment selection was good"
Cons: "Seating comfort was *horrible*! Looks like they've made the seats more cramped, especially when the seats recline"
Pros: "This flight was cancelled"
Cons: "This flight was cancelled and we were rebooked on the 10:30 flight to Frankfurt"
Pros: "Most of the aspects of flying"
Cons: "There is a fair amount of room for improvement when it comes to Lufthansa airplane food"
Cons: "flight was completely cancelled due to operational issues with the plane. They sent us all on a bus to Stuttgart from Zurich."

It was a Good flight

Listening covid restrictions and following them is completely nonsense. Avoid touching others? How when plane is full and everybody who pass around touchs me. Keep distance?? How???? Avoid walking in the plane but also wash your hands regularly with soap and water? How? I should avoid walking but at the same time you want me to wash hand regularly? It means i have to walk up and down. What is regularly for you? Every 15mins? Every hour? Every day? It is so stupid what you are telling that my brain stops to work.

They canceled our flights but they flew anyway.

Pros: "The crew were great! The seats are not that comfortable, it happened that I had 3 seats raw for myself but the armrests were not going up so I could not utilize them and lie down to sleep."
Pros: "Due to business I travel allot so I deal with allot of airlines. This is by far the best airlines I have used. Excellent crew and airport staff. I don’t think words can express how satisfied I am with this airlines and airport. The nicest people and great service. Clean and modern aircraft. Going to try flying only with KLM from now on."
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Muslim food"
Pros: "15 years ago I told myself not to fly Delta anymore. But these 2 flights Detroit to Amsterdam and back changed my mind. I enjoyed the flight very much and I'm looking forward to the next one."
Pros: "Flight was on time."
Cons: "Staff: from check in to landing, they could at least smile. Baggage claim was a nightmare, 6 Schengen flights in the same belt."
Pros: "Loved the smooth ride."

Pros: "Great crew."
Cons: "Ran out of business class meal. Substituted a Econ class."

Cons: "Not being 1 hour late"
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: "Good for both."
Cons: "Bigger seats."
Pros: "Food, entertainment and crew was exceptionally friendly."
Cons: "Seats not great for such a long flight."
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: "The crew was attentive and the seat at economy comfort was comfortable at the “ok” level. It needs much mor3 to be super comfortable. The plug for the headphones was a mess! It was NOT possible to watch a movie and hear the sound too! I gave up! Not a great offering for the extra dollars..."
Cons: "So many things! Starting with the way assistance in the airport is offered to travellers with mobility issues! This is an important issue that needs to be revisited and changes for better service to be made!"
Pros: "Nice aircraft"
Cons: "Unexpected refueling stop. 2 hr delay Lost connection Reached destination after 18 hr delay"
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: "The staff are the best European crews I have encountered. Naturally friendly, professional and fit looking. Nothing is too much trouble"
Pros: "The staff was extremely pleasant. Food was good!"
Cons: "Have no complaints"
Pros: "The cabin crew were good. They explained what the arrangements were for the delayed flight connections"
Cons: "The plane wasn't refueled and so was not ready for take off once the passengers were loaded. The plane had a technical problem when it tried the first take off and so it had to be abandoned. This was alarming.."
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: "Clean airplane, friendly crew, no rush, nice snacks for a short one hour flight. Just generally a positive experience."
Pros: "The supplied pack of toothpaste/toothbrush"
Cons: "OLD OLD plane with hard seats and tiny screens"
Pros: "On time."
Cons: "No negative"
Cons: "Service"
Pros: "Crew service"
Cons: "Flight delayed."
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: "Excellent service"
Cons: "Having to pay extra to pick a seat prior to check-in. I didn't, and got a decent seat anyway."
Pros: "A nice short flight"
Cons: "We had booked business on our flight to Milan, and it was extremely disappointing that on this sector they put us on the last seat in the back of the plane. There were plent of seats on this flight that had extended legroom. A bit of a mystery, why Westjet elected to put usin the last seats on the plane?"
Cons: "sardines!"
