Everything was all right

Their customer service as specially those in Frankfurt is worse

All good

The food n crew were excellent, but my TV monitor had problems n they had to move my seat. This is the second time my TV has problems, shame on the engineering crew.

Food was horrible. Flt too crowded. Dirty bathrooms.

Check in took a long time although I had already checked in via app; it took a long time to board; Seats we’re not comfortable; The way food was served was very weird and unpleasant since some people were served first even when we were sitting next to each other. Food was awful! Flight attendants were not very attentive.

Pros: "Crew staff were excellent. Food was pretty good. Overall trip was flawless including and early arrival."
Cons: "The movies choices in the in-flight entertainment were wanting."

Seating arrangements could be more comfortable

Bare bones flight, no entertainment, so USB port for charging either which is a problem as it’s a 4.5hr flight. Will be avoiding this flight next time or preparing with extra batteries. Food is poor when compared to the Doha-London Qatar Airways operated flight.

Literally spit several of the food items out rather than eat them. Utterly revolting . Worst meals I’ve ever had on Qatar airways. Seats cramped and uncomfortable. Headsets were nasty hollow sound making it unpleasant to watch movies and had to use high volune just to hear at all.

Goods

It was a good trip. Friendly staff. On time flights. Great experience.

Spacious seating was great! Food could have been better!

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

👍

Pros: "Absolutely nothing."
Cons: "Everything. Firstly the flight was delayed, these things happen but nevertheless I end up missing my connecting Qatar flight to Belgrade, put into a horrible little hotel for 24hrs without my bag, no clothes or toiletries. At one point during the flight once everyone had their chairs reclined one hostess told me to not put mine so far back?!?! Then when asked well then person in front of me has to move theirs forward and her response no they don’t. Absolutely shocking. To think I wanted to upgrade to business class. I’m traveling the globe over the next year and thought let me try Qatar but never again with this type of service and how they treat their customers."
Cons: "Check-in service at Ahmedabad was very bad. The staff there seems to be very disorganized. Took an hour to check-in may be 10-12 passengers ahead of me."
Pros: "To long lay over"
Cons: "Direct flight from South Africa to USA"

Cons: "Nothing!"
Pros: "Comfort of the seat/bed"
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: "the flight was comfortable"
Pros: "I like the service very much. Flight attendants are very friendly and helpful, polite. After the flight I got some present. Kit with socks eye mask and lip balm, which was very nice."

Cons: "Very uncomfortable seats- Space between seats is very tight"
Pros: "In-flight entertainment is excellent. Some of the grew also excellent. Had excellent seat 68d. Lots of leg room. Aircraft looked brand new."

Pros: "Wonderful staff, service, food and comfort."
Pros: "Ok"
Cons: "Wheel chair was not available on arrival. Had to wait 45 minutes"
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: "Over all service was excellent!"
Cons: "Short transfer time made it a bit stressful"
Cons: "Narrow seats and little legroom."
Pros: "Quick, easy boarding and nice crew with professionalism."
Cons: "Food wasn't great, but edible. No options for a vegan who didn't choose a vegan meal as the flight was booked last minute. Unhealthy food all around."
Cons: "Suggestion: I think it is better if all the children and their parents/ care takers are provided priority seats in front. This will reduce unnecessary annoyance caused to other passengers on long flights and at the same time enhance the experience of the children and their care takers if special attention can be devoted to them."
Pros: "The food and crew."
Cons: "The intertainment system on the Doha to Nairobi flight had old communal TV screens."
Cons: "This was also a good flight it was just a bit more cramped than the Qatar Flight Los Angeles to Doha so I preferred that flight over the Doha to Singapore"
Pros: "Everything was quite nice. The TV screens were working for all the seats! Though I did not give my meal preference earlier, they still accommodated my request. Doha airport is quite nice and modern. Crew was helpful."
Cons: "I wish Quatar had a direct flight between Chicago and Indian cities such as Delhi and Mumbai. I can understand that Doha is their hub, but such a flights would be really good for me as I always want to reduce my layovers. (I noticed that most travelers in my Delhi to Doha and Doha to Chicago flights were Indians, hence my request makes sense.)"
Pros: "Crew was amazing and very helpful"
Cons: "The wheel chairs was a bit scarce so we had to walk far distances at Dubai airport"
Cons: "The crew was good, but the attentiveness of the crew on the second leg was amazing"
Pros: "Crew was great."
Cons: "There is for a 4 hours flight just a small snack - just like a local flight. Then there is no bedding at all, just a blanket. Very poor for a F-class ticket."
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"
Cons: "Check the head phone sets have both speakers working. I had to ask for a different set which was fine"
Cons: "Old plane - ACE - very basic movie selection."
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: "Service & caring were superb"
Cons: "The snack was served not good and eatable. Emirates like one of leading air lines could have been served a better food. If it is cost cutting effort to serve a very basic snack like this, customers will be finding other air lines in the future."
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: "Emirates sent a notice that the flight was cancelled on a flight from SF to the Maldives - with about 6 hours notice. They put me on a plane two days later. Zero interest by the airline helping. We found a flight on Turkish but paid an extra $500. Zero interest in helping. Last time sensitive ever on Emirates."
Pros: "Great comfort and entertainment some of the best I have ever had on a plane. Will definitely fly Emirates again."
Cons: "Not huge fan of boarding off a bus instead of the traditional way from the airport terminal. Food selection could be better but overall not bad."
Pros: "Great flight"
Cons: "No problems"
Cons: "Very poorly organized boarding"
Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing. The video quality and sound were not great"
Cons: "Seat was uncomfortable"
Pros: "Everything was great!"
Cons: "—-"
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.)"
Cons: "Usually, on the night flights you get a small toileteries kit with ear plugs, eye cover and a toothbrush. I kind of missed that..."
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: "Everything."
Cons: "Nothing."
Cons: "The entertainment was giving some issues and the staff tried to resolve it. Eventually it came right by it self..."
Pros: "entertainment is great."
Cons: "completely full flight."
Pros: "Staff were friendly and helpful. ICE entertainment onboard offered a wide veriety to choose from"
Cons: "The food was average"
Pros: "Caring crew"
Pros: "Flight wasn't cancelled."
Cons: "Lengthy check in of baggage, followed by delayed boarding."
Pros: "We've flown asian airlines before, but Emirates is by far the best for international travel. Unfortunately we could not afford to upgrade to business, but because we let the Agent know it was our honeymoon he put my wife and I in a window and aisle seat so that we would have nobody between us. This gave us the extra room and comfort we needed. Also, they are a bit roomier than most planes with better leg room. They have a TON of free movies, tv shows, games, music and more on the plane. Food was decent for airplane food and they gave lots of snacks in between."
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."
Cons: "debarking process was one of the longest in my life"
Pros: "The flight attendants were very cheerful. There was a good variety of movies and other entertainment."
Cons: "The issue is the electronics ban which is not the fault of Emirates. An extra bottle of wine was requested after dinner which never arrived. During boarding, it was difficult to know which group was boarding when."
Pros: "Friendly, accommodating, and professional service!"
Cons: "Bad smell - probably somebody had vomited on a previous flight"
Cons: "The flight was delayed"
Pros: "There was enough leg room, good entertainment and food."
Pros: "The reception at Dubai and delivery to the hotel. Friendly crew. Toilet regularly cleaned"
Cons: "Short on instruction on using the entertainment module. Having to repeatedly ask for water because it only came in small half glasses each time"
Cons: "Entertainment system was older version than the flight to Dubai. Also less legroom in this model 777"
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."
Cons: "The entertainment was surprisingly uninteresting during this trip. Previously it's been better. The food options were also not as good, but the food was a notch above most other airlines so can't complain too much."
Pros: "Seats are way better than other airlines and the entertainment systems is way better. Finally, someone decided it would be a good idea to provide power outlets in a plane. Why was that so hard?"
Pros: "Communication on phone prior to flight regarding baggage allowance & other matters was handled promptly & efficiently by friendly & knowledgeable phone agents. Ground crews in airports & at gates most friendly & efficient"
Pros: "By far the best airline, from service to quality, all around awesome."
Pros: "i liked the neatness and welcome"
Cons: "i did not like the food"
Pros: "sitting and staff"
Cons: "food option"

Frustratingly got placed in the last row with a teenage kid who was not mine and fell asleep on me. When I tried to push him off of me his glasses fell off his face and behind the chair. He seemed too dazed to crawl under the seat to get them so I had to do it. So cold and so uncomfortable. Fortunately just a short flight.

Very poor customer service Airport staff has no compassion Hotel stay was worst ever in my life Very rude hotel staff No food provided during hotel stay Flight connected delayed for 6 hours on outbound flight and missed connection due to flight delay on inbound flight

Pros: "Comfortable seats and good entertainment, nice food"
Cons: "Cabin crew were not friendly, and were resistant for any special requests"
Pros: "Food was really good, staff was helpful and friendly and there was more legroom that I've often experienced. Also - flight was NOT packed - there was actually an empty mid-row seat!"
Pros: "Left on time, arrived on time, crew were friendly and efficient, toilets were kept clean the entire flight, seat in economy had enough leg room and recline to sleep"
Cons: "In-flight entertainment films were a bit limited"
Pros: "Good gluten free bread on Istanbul to Malta leg. Blankets are good as is amenity pack which has all but diasappeared on BA. Good choice of films"
Cons: "Foot rest in economy, gluten free meal is poor (except bread)."
Pros: "The crew was amazing."
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Crew was great. The sit was great for an international flight in economy class."
Cons: "A passenger clipped her nails without collecting her clippings while a crew person passed by. Although it may be that this is a culturally accepted practice, I would prefer that in international flights, a crew member will request the passenger to clean after themselves or do it in the lavatory."
Pros: "The cabin crews on Turkish work very hard. The food is well prepared ,"
Cons: "Nil"
Pros: "Every thing normal and in time"
Cons: "Food was everage"
Pros: "Turkish Airline is really good at making safety videos. Istanbul Atatürk Airport is hands down the best airport in the world."
Cons: "There is no communication from the airport to the passengers making it really complicated to board the plane on time even while waiting for the boarding to begin at the gate."
Pros: "W2"
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."
Pros: "love the wine/food for, the long haul flights and a good selection of entertainment!"
Cons: "still dont get why plane seats can't br designed to be mildly comfortable."
Pros: "Professional and friendly staff. Excellent film selection."
Cons: "Not enough security staff at Istanbuñ and no one from the airline to assist. The queues were too long at security so I had to run to make my flight. Lots of other people had the same trouble and I believe my cousin missed her connection."
Cons: "Flight was late leaving Nairobi due to a catering issue. Missed connection through Istanbul to Manchester. Placed on AF flight to Paris then Manchester. Paris flight was delayed. Missed connection to Manchester. Paid for my own hotel room overnight in Paris CDG. Flight will arrive a day late in Manchester. That means I have missed my flights from Manchester to UK with Air Lingus (booked through Kayak website) It seems I must now purchase a new ticket to get home from Manchester to Nashville. All expenses I can ill afford. Lesson learned...cannot afford to use Kayak anymore...sorry."
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: "movies and food"
Pros: "Entertainment was great, crew were polite and attentive"
Cons: "Not enough leg room for anyone over 6ft tall"
Pros: "The crew was good and courteous. The food was pretty good.great entertainment options."
Cons: "Could not access the wifi."
Pros: "highly organized boarding process. I wish other airlines would adopt it. courteous, helpful staff, both on the ground and in the air."
Cons: "everything was very well done"
Cons: "collecting the food trays long after you finished eating is annoying. Tray keeps sliding at you."
Pros: "the crow"
Pros: "Extras provided - eye mark, socks etc"
Cons: "My seat was unable to recline. My husband and I were moved to a middle aisle (although we really didn't want to share) only to find that the foot rest at my foot rest was also faulty. It was an uncomfortable flight"
Pros: "Everything was good"
Cons: "All good"
Pros: "The only thing that I liked was that I got to spend time in Turkey which is beautiful and had friendly people outside of the airport."
Cons: "Customer service sucked! Especially in Amman and Turkey . No one would help you when you need it in the airports and their desks are not open long enough to get the help that you need in Amman. Also, when you ask the information desk at the airport in Amman to call someone from Turkish Airlines they tell you that they can't because they won't come. I hope that this feedback would be used to make the airlines better because Turkey is truly a beautiful place."
Pros: "A much nicer 777 on this leg."
Cons: "The lounge at IST is overcrowded and lacks sufficient showering facilities. There was leftover food everywhere that the overworked staff tried, in vain, to keep up with."
Pros: "The seats in economy were very comfortable, food was excellent (and surprising given it was a short flight), crew was friendly and accommodating, entertainment selection was excellent"
Cons: "Boarding was slightly chaotic--no one boarded according to group number and people who were not priority used the priority line anyway once all of the members had gone through."
Pros: "They try to impress, quite attentive and nice. Plane is clean an new B777."
Cons: "Flight was too exhausting, but Turkish Airlines have nothing to do with this. Ataturk Airport in Istanbul is ... mediocre at the best."
Pros: "Great comfort and Turkish airlines gave us (the passengers) an amazing experience :)"
Pros: "Food was tasty and fresh but staff cold and aloof"
Cons: "I had a connection from Istanbul to Frankfurt with Lufthansa . I was disappointed that TK airlines did not allow me to check the luggage through to Frankfurt because the flight was on a different ticket . As an Elite Plus member , I expect better cooperation among the star alliance member airlines . I had to check out and back again , took almost two hours of waiting in lines . Good that on this occasion I had sufficient time and did not miss the LH flight ."
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: "Amazing food! Very nice crew and excellent flight."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Would not refund my ticket or make changes. Turkey is full of terrorism and all Americans have been evacuated from this country and the airline would not refund me. They kept my money and robbed me."
Pros: "Food is ok."
Cons: "The wait for checking hand carry luggage and purse was tooo long. You need more high tech machines to use for checking . Just like United States. So irritating to see how Turkish people checked your bags. There shld be a better way of doing things, like checking hand carry bags , laptops ,, iPods. I was surprises even cameras were withheld and you need to get it in San Francisco"
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 lounge was great"
Cons: "They lost my bag for 4 days while i had a 7 hour stop over meaning they had sufficient time to arrange for it."
Pros: "Cleanliness, wonderful crew,"
Cons: "The TV on my seat was not working"
Pros: "The crew is super. The food is good and the entertainment system is almost perfect (free WiFi will make it the best ever)"
Cons: "legs space, legs space and legs space. I will hesitate to pick up turkish only because of that. in long flights there are a lot of satisfaction factors but this is the most important one for me. if I have to get up every 20 min to stretch, it is not working."
Pros: "Food was good for airline food."
Cons: "Seats were smaller on this plane. I'm 6-2" and this flight my knees hit the chair in front of me."
Pros: "Everything"
Pros: "entertainment"
Cons: "Seating too narrow"
Pros: "Comfy plane overall, good and entertainment was good!"
Pros: "I didn't like what airline did to my mother-in-law was here arrive at JFK an hour before her flight left because another airline counter day or late day since she was a no-show when the plane is still sitting there and she was there an hour before the plane left I would never fly this airline and I will let everyone know that this is the most corrupt airline out there"
Cons: "I didn't like what airline did to my mother-in-law was here arrive at JFK an hour before her flight left because another airline counter day or late day since she was a no-show when the plane is still sitting there and she was there an hour before the plane left I would never fly this airline and I will let everyone know that this is the most corrupt airline out there"

Amsterdam as a hub is a mess, do not use Amsterdam and KLM as a hub to European cities unless you want to miss your flight.

Dear Sir, The flight was delayed for 2 hours. After 2 hours the flight was cancelled and KLM was trying to transfer us to another flights. Unfortunately there is no flight to Manchester which led us to cancel our flight booking with KLM and rebook with Qatar airways to catch the flight same day. Regards Amjad Juma

The flight that you gave us, JQ7 from Melbourne did not exist. Therefore we had to stay in Melbourne for another 24 hours and find another new route and flights to return to Heathrow. All a strain and stress. Your service to us for the return journey useless. So far, I have not found that you have corrected any of your failings and therefore it could also happen again to others tomorrow, next week, or next month. The return journey was a total disaster.

Over 3 hours of delay without any assistance from klm

Pros: "So rude crew"
Pros: "Very friendly and responsive crew. Announcements from the Capitan and chief of flight attendants are very informative and comforting. Seat positions: very good leg room (even in economy)!"

Pros: "Decent price for economy comfort seat, 4A."
Cons: "The flight was delayed about 80 minutes and they did not informed until when I got to the Airport. I could have stayed more at home instead of the terminal. They have also changed the boarding gate.."

Cons: "Inflight sandwiches"
Pros: "The crew were excellent and seats were comfy."
Cons: "Headphones for the entertainment centre.could have been better. Sound quality not great."

Cons: "Staff rude and short"
Pros: "Good for both."
Cons: "Bigger seats."
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"

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."
Pros: "It was all fine"
Cons: "Really was unsure of why I had to purchase a ticket as I was able to pick my own on the way to Billund"

Pros: "Light snack and complementary wine"
Pros: "Landing"
Cons: "I’ve traveled a lot internationally and this was the WORST flight I’ve ever had to endure. I felt like I was being tortured and didn’t sleep at all and so slept when getting into Amsterdam rather than being able to explore the city. I was out $200 for the Airbnb (could’ve stayed in the airport cheaper) and $200 for a dinner cruise I slept through. NEVER AGAIN"
Cons: "The flight advertised meals..a small pastry was served an hour into the flight. I asked when the meal would be and was told a few hours...which turned out to be breakfast..i wated all night for food that only came an hour before landing. Now hungrey and tierd.I.will not be flying klm ever again !!"
Pros: "Very friendly and helpful crew."
Pros: "The food rocks! I know that I will always be eating well with KLM. The staff is always so nice, professional and cordial...I always know I'll be in good hands with the flight."
Pros: "Good entertainment options. Nice flight attendants"
Cons: "It would be helpful for short people to be able to adjust the head rest lower on the seat. More recent released movies would be helpful. More leg room. Not charging more money to choose seats."
Cons: "You are almost always late!"
Pros: "Fairly nice flight. 7 hours AMS to JFK. They had ice cream cones for us mid flight and an after dinner cognac if you wished."

Pros: "Great service"
Pros: "Food was good and crew members were very nice"
Cons: "My check in luggage was in very bad condition when I receive it. My clothes were all wet and they got bab by each other’s colour. Many clothes are not in a condition to wear now. Those were expensive and I had a big loss because of that."

Pros: "Entertainment was good, and crew was very nice and accommodating. Flight was very comfortable and smooth."
Cons: "The food was okay, not that great."

Cons: "Food was not upto the mark."
Pros: "Loved the service...everything was excellent"
Cons: "The bus class seat was a bit narrow at the feet"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Flight from Amsterdam was 2 hours late. Caused me to miss connection on train from London to Leeds which then cost me 124 pounds to rebook. No information was forthcoming at all at the airport and there were 3 different departure times given. Absolute chaos. The airline is a joke"
Pros: "quick boarding, responsive Airline stewardess, very polite."
Cons: "temperature control was not good, service was fine, seats were not comfortable. plane need to be cleaner."
Pros: "Comfortable flight to Amsterdam for vacation in UK. More meals than expected. Also wasn't expecting some of the comforts offered to "regular" class seats like eye masks, ear plugs, pillows and blankets. It was an overnight flight, so maybe that should have been expected, but I don't think we had those 4 years ago when traveling overseas."
Cons: "Nothing. This is filler text to meet min characters."
Cons: "I requested low fat meals. The first one, was OK. But they forgot my request for the second one."
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: "Good flight, we got a nice snack despite it being a short flight, the staff was great."
Pros: "Quick and efficient flight. Crew very organized. Great language skills"
Pros: "Almost missed flight due to line at customs and having to pick up suitcase and check in again, they did wait for me though"
Pros: "There's almost no padding to them and they're very narrow. I know it's nothing new but I'll keep complaining until something changes, if ever."
