Delayed and hour talking off and delay the other end unable to get into the gate, had to wait on the runway for almost 40 minutes, not what you need on a 25 hour journey from Australia to the UK. No reason was given for the delay taking off, on arrival because we were late our gate was taken. Poor experienced.

They are amazing

Cons: "Everything was just great in their business class."
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: "Food"
Cons: "Seats"
Cons: "No gate for departure or arrival. No business class longe in Cape Town."
Pros: "Everything was very good and comfortable. I really enjoyed my journey. Thanks."
Pros: "Crew is amazing and very courteous. The seats were very comfy and food was awesome. Thanks."
Pros: "Staff were accommodating and considerate, great flight!"
Cons: "Not a lot other than better choice of movies and music. Super airline as always"
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: "The plane was new and spotless, the crew did everything possible to make the flight great. Food service, and Wine and Cocktails were always served with a smiling face and it made you think of flying many years ago. Service cleanliness of the restrooms and staff were top notch"
Cons: "Nothing really."
Cons: "Boarding process, and in-flight entertainment and wifi"
Pros: "Seat where comfortable and thank needed more leg space"
Cons: "Good was poor bcz going and back was same menu of choice of food."
Pros: "The staff at Qatar Airways did everything they could to make this flight one of the most enjoyable of my entire life. The food was well prepared and exceeded my expectations. I also enjoyed that the food was served at times that minimized the impact of the time change."
Cons: "The movie and TV options were impressive; however, in-flight WiFi and power would have been convenient and improved the entertainment on board the flight."
Cons: "Unable to reserve any seats so ended up with the family split all over the plane"
Cons: "Houston airport qatar airways check in office has 4 counters and 2 were for people who electronically checked in and they were only a few and other 2 counters were for the huge line. Need more counters. Doha airport has majority of Indian national personell at check in and luggage checkins. They have to learn some manners and be polite with people. Rudeness is a turn off passengers who are tired"
Pros: "seat space with leg room."
Pros: "good crew"
Cons: "plane hadn't been cleaned (trash/food garbage in the seat pockets), plane was very hot"
Pros: "I liked their customer service, food, and the flight attendants were friendly. They have a very nice shopping mall at Hamad International Airport in Doha, Qatar."
Cons: "They have less space to move your feet and after a while your left knee begins to hurt because you have been sitting in the plane for a long time. Whenever I asked to get a drink of water or soft drinks, it took the flight attendant 10-15 minutes to arrive with my drink. I understand she was occupied with other duties, but she should have made me her priority."
Pros: "Great crew, as usual."
Cons: "Ugh, The seat in front of me had some box taking up 1/4 of my leg-room. I get that the box probably contains some crucial equipment, but can you at least round the edges so I can lay my leg against it without cutting off my circulation to my foot? Other than that, typical Qatar luxury (as much as you're gonna find in coach)."
Cons: "Lack of crowd control at the gate during boarding. Ihad to"
Pros: "Everything"
Pros: "Great travel experience. We flew economy. Spacious, good service, comfy, on time."
Cons: "NA"
Pros: "Great cabin crew"
Cons: "Crappy old style recliner seats in business class for a 6 hour flight. Not consistent with the Qatar brand"
Pros: "Great flight with good food and crew."
Pros: "Exceptional service!"
Cons: "both flights had 2 hours delay... also lugages cames with next flight."
Pros: "Staff very friendly. Loved the adjustable headrest as I am shorter and this is the first time flying that my neck was so comfortable I didn't need my travel pillow! Food was excellent!"
Cons: "Nothing!"
Pros: "The airline in general was good, provided a kit with socks, ese plugs,toothbrush and other essentials,good movie choices, overall customer service. They had free wifi which was amazing!!"
Cons: "We took 2 long flights one from morrocco to Qatar and Qatar to dallas. The food on the flights was not the best, one the first one they ran out of chicken meal and only had fish left which was gross, for such a big airline you would also think they give a snack in between meals but they do not.also after giving you the food it took a long time for them to pick up the tray which I thought was unusual"
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: "good service, good food"
Cons: "staff could be more cheerful towards travellers"
Pros: "All the services were excellent. From the checking-in to the boarding. The flight crew could not have been more helpful, courteous and polite. Food was great on board."
Pros: "Crew attention and care"
Cons: "Food: at best a B+ Entertaining: movie variety is poor. Seat: even in business class the seat doesn't recline completely... not very comfortable as compared to other airlines"
Pros: "Boarding, the welcome on board, the food choice and quality were all excellent. The seat was comfortable as I didn't want to sleep. The entertainment screen was big and clear, and the choice of films was good. The member of flight crew, a Latvian lady, who looked after me onboard was a real star, very efficient but still had time to chat."
Cons: "The choice of films and tv programmes, was good, but before watching each one i chose, I had to endure a couple off minutes of an advert- the same one every time."
Cons: "It was all good"
Pros: "Great service and 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: "Generally ok but not as good as other Middle East carriers"
Cons: "The leg room on this flight felt less generous than other carrier and the food was poor almost inedible. The aircraft (777) seemed much noiser than other aircraft I have flown on and the noise from the toilet flush could be heard 10 rows away"
Pros: "Service, friendliness of that staff"
Cons: "Other passengers used my carry-on baggage space and my carry on was placed far from me."
Pros: "The entertainment selections and the comfort of my seat."
Cons: "The flight was delayed for two hours without any warning, despite being registered for the airline's flight notification system. Service was terrible. The flight crew did not offer any kind of apology or explanation for the delay. Food and beverage service was delayed and the staff was forgetful of guests' requests. Upon our arrival in Doha, checked bags did not arrive until 2 hours after we landed! How does an airport receive a 5-star rating, but takes 2 hours to return baggage to its guests? Overall, a poor experience from Qatar Airways."
Cons: "The seat cussion on the airplane is to hard for a 5+ hours flight. Not enough food for vegans"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "everything were so bad and the service was awful ,"
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: "Layover in the middle of the night - no sleep! Also, crew kept waking us up for meals etc, versus letting us sleep."
Pros: "The staff was amazing! I started I get a headache- probably because of low blood sugar, and one of the attendant provided me with constant water, ginger ale, and chocolates. It was so sweet- she didn't have to make sure I was okay, but she chose to our the kindness of her heart!"
Cons: "The cramped quarters. I had a very tall person sit practically on my lap the entire flight, as he leaned his chair back the entire time. It left no room for me to use the table for my laptop. I was fortunate that no one sat next to me on my first flight, but for the second one I was not so lucky – so I couldn't work on my schoolwork."
Pros: "Qatar Airways is a nice airline and it's obvious they work on making your flight a pleasant experience with a lot of food, entertainment, etc"
Cons: "My flight was delayed 4 hours upon initially arriving to the airport. While it was important for me to be there when I found out this information because I needed to reschedule my connecting flightso due to the delay, this should not be required. Qatar Airways, knew the flight was going to be delayed at least 10 hours before they announced it. They should have already began the process of rescheduling connecting flights and figuring out problems before passengers arrive to the airport. I probably spent 45 minutes at the ticket counter working things out."
Pros: "airline service"
Cons: "n.a"
Cons: "Long transit"

Good

Cons: "The crew was good, but the attentiveness of the crew on the second leg was amazing"
Pros: "Crew was very calm, courtesy, and cheerful."
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"
Cons: "Lap dances. Strippers. Cabin crew in miniskirts snd high heels."
Pros: "Service level of cabin crew and ICE."
Cons: "The long wait to exit from the aircraft and to pick up my baggages from the carousel at Mcr airport. The main meal chicken curry & rice was a disappointment as the curry appeared slimy and starchy. It didn’t come anywhere near the delicious meal on flight from Mcr to Dubai on 12/1/19 chicken with pilaf rice!"
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."
Pros: "Brilliant service from start to finish"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Legroom and seats Entertainment"
Cons: "Slow service Sparing on refreshments"
Cons: "Very poorly organized boarding"
Pros: "Crew were helpful & friendly."

Cons: "Nothing"
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."
Pros: "Most of the staff were supportive and caring and made me feel like nothing was too much to ask."
Cons: "I didn't realise my kid wouldn't get her own meal and I ran out of food if prepared by the last flight as we were travelling 38 hours in total. Snacks were available on request but it was just crisps so I gave her most of my meals."
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"
Pros: "The flight on the A3800 was great."
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: "I just don’t like discomfort of others moving their seat back."
Cons: "see above"
Pros: "Flight wasn't cancelled."
Cons: "Lengthy check in of baggage, followed by delayed boarding."
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: "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."
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!"
Pros: "The ice entertainment is great, from movies to series and such a vast choice to pick from. Was the only thing that kept me going on the flight."
Cons: "For a 8 hour flight the seats are not great. I'm only 5'7" and still didn't feel I had much room for my legs. Food wasn't the best but I've never been a fan of airplane food. Had a good pick of soft drinks."
Pros: "Good seat pitch in economy and good entertainment selection."
Pros: "Everything!!!!!"
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"
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: "Iv only every travelled 1st class before and this time had to travel business. I hadn't realised the drop in standard would be so apparent . The staff are not as professinal , attentive and didn't seem very organised ."
Cons: "The food was below any standard iv ever flown and was quite frankly disappointed with it only the stale dry scones but the flight as whole . I voiced my concerns at the time and was apologised to . This however caused me to feel uncomfortabld and out in the spot ."
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."
Cons: "Crew was unprofessional Bags got lost and took forever for any bags to go through on carrousel They boarded nearly an hour before take off and process was very disorganized Hardly any water served"
Pros: "Great experience would Defo use them for our next trip."
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."

The boarding in Instanbul to and from. The picking and choosing of when the gate is closed and boarding is done... almost had ppl in jail.

Cons: "The temperature was around 18 degrees.i asked several times if they can adjust it to normal the crew kept saying we will ask to pilot etc.no improvement. While facing covid i dont want to get cold!! Secondly no one checked for covid results while boarding and/or on check-in kiosks.i asked during boarding why they are not checking the reports the answer was they thought we had been checked during check-in.totaly fiasco and no alignement.i didnt want to get in a plane people with covid!!"
Pros: "Everything was great one of the nicest airlines I've ever flown on"
Cons: "Nothing everything was great"
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 new aircraft is well put together and comfortable."
Cons: "Boarding and disembarking delays on both sides."
Pros: "In general service was great and professional"
Cons: "I honestly don’t any complains about the fly. It was an outstanding fly"
Pros: "Food was better"
Cons: "Seating was not tight"
Pros: "Boarding and traveling comfort was good .As always staff were very good and attentive.Food not very good snd boring."
Cons: "Cc"
Pros: "Turkish Airline is really good at making safety videos. Istanbul Atatürk Airport is hands down the best airport in the world."
Pros: "Food & entertainment"
Cons: "Boarding, narrow seats for a 7 hours flight & lost baggage"
Pros: "Food was good."
Cons: "Way too hot. It felt like we couldn’t breathe the first 90 minutes of the flight it was so hot. Then we kind of got used to it. Bathrooms were dirty and the whole plane smelled of pee. Awful experience."
Pros: "Kids full of praise for on board entertainment. Efficient and helpful staff. Nice food. Provided me with a veggie meal despite my not ordering one beforehand."
Cons: "A little pricey."
Pros: "The international pods were wonderful. Lots of space and could choose from a ton of movies. the bathroom was oversized with plenty of space. And the Bentley travel packs are a very nice touch. The highlight of the trip though is the Turskish Lounge in Istanbul. It has several grand pianos, tons of iMac stations, a freaking golf simulator, and different food stations. Thai, Turkish cuisine a salad bar. It it the best lounge I have experienced 10 fold. It’s the size of a mall."
Cons: "One negative was the beverage service. Iberia and Korean air are much more attentive before and upon take off. Beverage carts come around quite often. Turkish, not so much. Also food was just okay. Feel like other airlines do better in business class"
Pros: "Infinitely superior to BA on the London to Istanbul route , in economy but especially so in business. Great entertainment whilst BA have non. Also full service meals in economy whereas BA make you pay on boatd"
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: "Nothing isn’t good flight"
Cons: "I don’t have any thing to say everything are bad even Airport too bad to find WI Fi also has unclean bathrooms over there"
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."
Cons: "The flight was cancelled and I still didnt receice my refund."
Cons: "I wish there would be more leg space. Had to use all my power to get the seat to recline. And the movie options were very less and harldy any light and entertaining movies were avilable."
Pros: "Excellent"
Cons: "Flight delayed an hour and a half! And killed my connection, so an uncompensated extra seven hours in Istanbul airport."
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: "We did not crash"
Cons: "Seat were tiny and uncomfortable. The customer service is wprst i have ever seen, complete disasters. The food made hospital food look good. It was terrible. I would never fly with them again."
Pros: "Everything was great!"
Cons: "Can't think of anything worth of complain!"
Pros: "Since boarding process thru comfort, food, entertainment, everything was perfect. Back to travel in the airline without thinking twice about it."
Pros: "I liked the idea of offering a tour of Istanbul during long connections that Turkish airlines offer. The tour that I went on was a 2.5 hour bus ride with sightseeing from the window mostly - still it was very nice. The people organizing passengers in groups for the tour in the airport however were not so nice. When I said "I have a question", the guy literally ROLLED HIS EYES at me."
Cons: "The crew was somewhat rude and unwelcoming, both in the plane and on the ground. The seat is not comfortable in comparison with other transatlantic flights - somehow the crew and the seats were so much better on my connecting TK flight within Europe."
Pros: "Food was tasty and fresh but staff cold and aloof"
Pros: "It was all good!"
Cons: "Except that in the same day I had two flights with Turkish Airlines and both of them had a delay."
Pros: "Food was pretty good."
Cons: "Crew was disorganized. Half the plane didn't get the bread that was supposed to be on the breakfast menu. Service was slow and not enough crew. Also had to wait 30 minutes to use the bathroom because the crew told me I couldn't go into the one I was already in line for and the other one was being cleaned. Seats were more cramped than most airlines (and I'm short)."
Pros: "Food 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"
Cons: "Great service and on time all the way"
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: "Small plane..no comfort"
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: "Seats and entertainment, seat comfort"
Pros: "The sevicewas great! i liked their food. It was very fresh and testy. The tv screen had a lots of great movies. I enjoyed my flight. Thanks"
Pros: "Food"
Cons: "Boarding and airplane age."
Pros: "entertainment"
Cons: "Seating too narrow"
Pros: "was no kosher food"
Pros: "The entertainment choices were quite good. Flights arrived more or less on time."
Cons: "Our departure flight (BOS-IST) was changed 6 weeks after our booking, so our 2.5-hour layover became 10 hours. This happened before in my past experience with Turkish Airlines. There were many babies and small kids, so the noise level was high. Not ideal if you want to get some sleep on the flight."
Pros: "Breakfast"
Cons: "Old-style video screen and console"
Pros: "Better headphones for economy Pillows on seat when boarding"
Cons: "Poor heating/cooling controls, cabin too hot"
Pros: "The food is the best."

Delays Needed to board a buss to get to our airplane.

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

Ridiculous unnecessary "extra security" checks at the gate before boarding. With mostly everyone vaccinated and everyone tested, requirement to keep the face covering on between taking the bites seemed a little excessive. Seat assignment - flying with my daughter were assigned seats at opposite sides of the plane, when asked for change was told that there were no 2 seats available together which proved to be not true when after boarding was complete.

Cons: "With the coronavirus breakout it was better if they pass disinfectant wipes especially before meals"
Pros: "Everything"

Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Planes were comfortable and well maintained."
Pros: "On time"
Pros: "Airbus 330 from Manchester to SFO was new, spacious and very comfortable. One of the best flights we’ve had across the pond."
Cons: "Transiting at Manchester between our Frankfurt to SFO flights was dreadful. They made us go through security and the inspectors were so incompetent they caused a huge back-up. Took an hour to get through. Avoid Manchester. Then they lost my luggage...still missing after a week."
Pros: "Not and horrible waited for 10hour before we board the last journey"
Cons: "Is horrible will not use kayak again we want to change the flight we were told not changeable"
Pros: "The crew was great. Seating was a little uncomfortable."
Cons: "Food was not so good."
Pros: "Crew very good"
Cons: "Could not check in online or get seat reservations in advance (other flights for journey allowed us to choose seats when we booked flights). This meant we were sitting separately and groundstaff suggested we were on standby, which we definitely weren't! Very irritating and unnecessary."
Pros: "Crew was professional and competent. Seats were roomy and comfortable."
Cons: "I have a hard time sleeping in any seat that doesn’t fully recline."
Cons: "Highly recommended for efficiency"
Pros: "The crew was excellent and the seats are v comfortable"
Cons: "I cant really think of anything"
Cons: "I was trying to extend my ticket but no one was answering my call last 2 days so I misssed my flight no refund nothing"
Pros: "Yes"
Cons: "The Cabin seating"
Cons: "Touch screens were not working well. Required multiple hard taps which disturbed the passenger in front."
Cons: "40 minute delay in departure due to late arrival of incoming aircraft."
Pros: "Not a long flight, overhead lockers had space although I wasn't helped to find somewhere. Crew lovely otherwise."
Cons: "Boarding from a connecting flight wasn't enough time, esp as our duty free purchases were selected for additional screening. Food was identical to what we had been offered on previous flight, and the outbound one."
Pros: "on time, great cabin crew"
Pros: "Gate crew was friendly."
Cons: "United. Not Lufthansa. The ability to change seats early with United and be a recognized flier and get credit was extremely difficult. Very poor service."
Pros: "Seat comfort and entertainment Option for WIFI and to charge was very nice add"
Cons: "Lost our luggage"
Pros: "The crew were impeccable."
Cons: "Very narrow economy seats."
Pros: "The plane was very clean and I appreciated when the crew asked passengers have their seats in a normal upright position during meal times as there is very little space when the seats are reclined. We can hardly get out of our seats when other passengers need to go to the restrooms."
Cons: "The crew was rather cold; I got the feeling they were doing their jobs but not in a warm and customer friendly oriented way, may be because I was in Economy. I was surprised by the lack of space in economy for such a long Haul flight in an A 380."
Cons: "Manchester Airport couldn’t organise a bus to take us off the plane. Stuck on a landed plane for ever."
Cons: "Got to pick a seat when signing in"
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: "Not much at all"
Cons: "I was enquiringly about the transfer of my luggage from the Hurghada flight with sunexpress with one of the Lufthansa correspondents at the central fest and the guy was absolutely clueless. Needless to say- our luggage wasn’t in Manchester when we arrived. Had to travel back to Manchester to collect it 8 hours later as it was left in Munich. Not happy one bit"
Pros: "Overall great and on time !"
Pros: "Smooth fast flight with good service!"
Cons: "Late taking off which happens, but they tried to make up the time in the air as much as they could on a short flight,"
Pros: "Left on time, arrived on time. Efficient service."
Cons: "None. The seats on this Airbus 320 were more comfortable on this leg than on the transatlantic leg of the journey."
Pros: "Good smooth flight, wine offered in economy. Crew wonderful"
Cons: "Fully booked, so a little crowded"
Pros: "All good - flight, service all great!!!"
Pros: "Both parts of flight was superb n/a"
Pros: "Good connection time and easy to get through security"
Cons: "Passports had to be checked and it delayed boarding. Everyone was frustrated"
Pros: "Everything! The service of the flight attendants, in full ugh entertainment."
Cons: "Everything was great. I would say that I didn't like the automation and self serve check in at Munich Airport not because it wasn't easy or efficient, but because I love human interactions. I know this is the way society is tending, towards automation, but I don't love it. I prefer to speak to a real person. Thank you for reading."
Pros: "Excellent, travel only with LH"
Cons: "The plane was a very noisy on take off."
Pros: "Very professional crew !!"
Cons: "Nothing to write ."
Pros: "Changed planes, flight didn't get cancelled"
Cons: "2 hour delay"
Cons: "By the time my daughter got through security the gate had closed and her ticket didn't allow for any opportunity for her to get another flight. Would not book again using Lastminute.com, nor Lufthansa, as they provided a lack of service and no help for her to change her flight - even though the ticket was nearly €200 and she was clearly distressed and upset."
Pros: "Overall, was good!"
Pros: "as usual flight itself was okay"
Cons: "no major complaints"
Pros: "Handy baggage check-in at Airport's Railroad Station. Decent meal, drink selection, and even warm towelettes in Economy."
Pros: "Best flying experience ever. Loved the new aircraft. Crew was exceptional. Service (food, drinks) was wonderful. Loved the continuous water offered. Very comfortable seats and great entertainment. Loved the 5 restrooms downstairs! Great design! Very impressed and I don't impress easily."
Cons: "I may have misunderstood but I thought I heard my Galaxy S7 had to be turned off (not able to use in airplane mode). Really just curious why (if I heard correctly)."
Pros: "Crew passed out drinks and food as passengers requested. Very very courteous and extremely caring. Airport, boarding, and everything else went flawlessly."
Cons: "I don't know whether it was the airplane or the seats, but something was squeaking for the entirety of the two hour flight"

Facilities for short connections.

Swift clean friendly on time

Never booked this flight

Cons: "Staff was not particularly warm or attentive. Was never offered more to drink, and after asking for more wine was ignored."

Pros: "KLM are our airline of choice. A great full-service carrier with impecable standards."
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "Bigger seats."
Cons: "This was just a short commuter flight from Lyon to Amsterdam for connection."
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: "Crew was fantastic."
Cons: "This was the most narrow airplane seat I’ve ever experienced. So uncomfortable."

Pros: "Very friendly crew going out of way to assist in making trip comfortable"

Pros: "Nice flight, nice crew, and a nice experience."
Pros: "Nothing really"

Pros: "Really friendly staff. Great service"
Cons: "Amesterdam airport employee was really rude"
Pros: "The flight attendants could not do enough for you."

Cons: "Kosher food could be improved"
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: "It's the best flight I could get for such a low price. But don't expect to to get the best and newest planes around but it's still overall a good experience."
Cons: "Quite bummed the plane didn't have wifi / USB"
Pros: "Captain was updating us with the delay status."
