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.

Cons: "Everything, the food and movies are old, beside all that the flight late and my connection left and no one apologist for that!!!"
Pros: "It has good sized toilets"
Cons: "Snacks and candy served we're of low quality. No prayer facilities inside the plane. They didn't allow me to pray though I got some empty spot to do so. They brought the issue of safety. While fasten seat belt sign was on I found people standing, walking, using toilet etc but air Crew did never brought up the issue of safety."
Pros: "Quality food and hospitality"
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!"
Pros: "The crew on my side of the cabin was very good."

Pros: "The check in crew needs training and learning the international rules Also they are missing kindness"
Cons: "Need completely replacement with expert crew"

Pros: "The professionalism of the staff"
Cons: "No comment"
Cons: "It was all good"
Pros: "Excellent service. Good seats. I like the 3x3x3 configuration which make the middle seat bearable."
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: "Crew was exceptional and in-flight entertainment options superb. Meals were well apportioned and delicious."
Cons: "Seats were a little narrow, especially the middle ones but to be expected when flying economy."
Pros: "The classy servieces in the plane..the plane it selfe is excellant"
Pros: "Food and entertainment"
Cons: "There was a rude counter staff when we checked in in Singapore."
Cons: "Worst customer service ever seen in my 15years of flying experience. Initially charged $1000 for 3 tickets for modification of return trip - confirmed the same and tickets issued (i'm fine with this). But, after i made arrangements for new date, I got a call saying calculation error and asked to pay another $500 leaving me no choices. How can such a reputed airline have no tools to calculate the pay? Other airlines offered one-way for half of the price i paid. On top of it, online helpdek promised front line seat to satisfy me but nothing was offered even if i ask explicitly. Simply declined saying i am not in priority list. Why do they make false promises? Friends, Just don't fly for food ....."
Pros: "Best Arab airline so far.5 star but if I could give more i would"
Pros: "Leg room. Free booze. Personalized attention"
Cons: "The thought of flying American carriers afterwards"
Cons: "Staff were rude, careless. I do think I have paid less to purchase of ticket - why will I not get good service. If you want to treat people differently for their skin color and country of origin then charge less price for the ticket !!"
Pros: "A350 is a very comfortable plane. More legroom than Emirates. Big difference for long flights."
Cons: "Service could be faster (food, etc). Entertainment system did not work on some of the seats."
Pros: "The leg room was good especially for tall passengers. Food was fantastic. The interior lighting of the plane was amazing. The airport is probably one of the best i have seen that a 9-hour layover didn't feel as bad. Very clean and so many things to do."
Cons: "Airconditioning needs a bit of improvement. I had to remove my jacket. It had a point that i was sweating in the middle of the flight. Probably the warmest airplane ride i had."
Pros: "Crew was friendly. Flight left on time!!!!!! :)"
Cons: "Food was served too late. Unable to get a bottle of water as I was dehydrated."
Pros: "Very generous with drinks and water to prevent dehydration. Two very good meals. Professional and courteous crew. Some unoccupied seats allowed passengers to spread out."
Cons: "Plane was a little too warm."
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: "Excellent crew, who make each person important."
Cons: "Being in economy nothing the crew could do would make it better, however as I have said before Emirates miles rewards should be continue not be lost after a certain time."
Pros: "The person behind me didn’t have enough space so I could recline back and get comfortable"
Cons: "More spacial seats"
Cons: "No entertainment but it’s probably because it was a short trip"
Pros: "Crew was very calm, courtesy, and cheerful."
Cons: "It was my first flight ever. So it was perfect thank you Emirates"
Pros: "Since not enough room in "What could have been better". For as long as my second flight was, from Dubai to Boston, the seats in coach were criminal!!! Way to narrow, especially if sitting next to a large person. Not nearly enough distance to seat in front of you, can't even bend over to reach some-"
Cons: "thing on the floor. The seats do NOT recline enough to be able to relax & get shuteye. It would have been really nice to have a footrest of some type, even busses have those! I am a small person, 5'1'' and 110 lb. Consider not having such a huge gap between 1st class and economy. Way over crowded."
Cons: "Check the head phone sets have both speakers working. I had to ask for a different set which was fine"
Pros: "Food and attentive of the crew."
Cons: "The boarding took a very long trip on the bus from gate to the aircraft. The entertainment system need maintenance. Screen and head set socket are poor quality."
Pros: "We love this airline!"
Pros: "Exceptional flight super comfortable"
Cons: "That i didn't receive my bucket list dream of an upgraded flight but that literally was thing that could have improved a really great flight..."
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: "Service and food"
Cons: "Boarding for business class took a long time and was very out of order"
Cons: "Nothing. The video quality and sound were not great"
Pros: "Comfortable seats, enough space for legs, helpful crew, We were offered a voucher to stay in a hotel close to the airport to get a few hours of sleep or relaxation. The voucher included lunch and dinner with good food.."
Cons: "I didn't like the long delay to stay in the airport on hard chairs before leaving Cape Town. The delay affected all the other connections with long periods of stay in the airports. The whole flight was rough, being shaken all the time."
Cons: "The flight on the B777 was most uncomfortable, even in Business Class. Will avoid any flight in this aircraft/airline in future"
Pros: "The Crew on Emirates are just the best in the industry"
Cons: "paid extra for legroom but the legroom seats have a big disadvantage of no place to put things you need on a long flight."
Pros: "Food ,seat,everything was just great"
Pros: "Everything, hands down best flights I've ever hand, I'm flying Emirates every single opportunity i get moving forward"
Pros: "horrible baggage policy"

Cons: "Last row seats so was a bit noisy. But nothing too bad."
Pros: "Loved to watch a movie and get wonderful service"
Cons: "Can't think of anything"
Pros: "Plenty of room even in economy. Good food for a plane. Very friendly"
Pros: "Flight crew was very friendly and helpful, seats were comfortable, entertainment options were plenty, and food was excellent. Would definitely fly again and recommended to others."
Cons: "Check in process was a little slow, since they do not have self service kiosks for those who are not checking bags. However, ticket staff was very friendly and helpful. Boarding was a tad chaotic, since they do not have separate lines for each group."
Pros: "Good entertainment selection. Nice quality blankets. Flight wasn't overbooked. Leg room. Complimentary wine."
Cons: "We were delayed 2 hours on the runway. Temperature got hot during the night."
Cons: "debarking process was one of the longest in my life"
Cons: "Our flight from Boston to JFK in Ny was delayed an hour. We got to JFK and ran from the plane to the terminal and they had already closed the door but the plane was still there. They wouldn't let us on the flight and it ended up even being delayed for 30 minutes! We talked to JetBlue and they said they couldn't do anything for us so not only did we miss out on a day in Italy, we lost our a ton of money on all the things we booked for Tuesday. We also then had to get a hotel in ny and everything was booked so we almost had to sleep at the airport but luckily we found a place that had a last minute opening. Still was super expensive and no one helped with a "destressed rate". Now we have to wait until 10 again tonight to try to catch the plane to Milan because Emirates only has one flight a day. This has been the worst travel experience I have ever had."
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: "ICE entertainment system was of high quality."
Cons: "First, the seats were very small and uncomfortable. I had trouble sleeping, and, the seat was stuck (couldn't move back). And second, the food tasted horrendous. I have been on many flights, and this was perhaps the worst meal I've ever had. The coffee was bitter enough to make me gag (even after I added cream), and the chicken was flavorless. The boarding process was a mess. It was hectic and unorganized. The flight was delayed an hour, and the crew failed to provide an adequate rationale as to why. Speaking of the crew, they weren't helpful. At one point, I had asked to use the restroom, and I couldn't get in. Again the crew provided no rationale as to why. Then, a few HOURS later, a lady approached me and said I could go "very quickly". This was my first time flying with Emirates and I don't think I'll be flying with them again."
Pros: "Excellent selection of entertainment"
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: "Crew was great, entertainment options expansive, food decent"
Cons: "I had 2.5 hours to get from terminal 5 to 4, check in and get to gate. I almost didn't make it. The lines at emirates check in were insane and didn't move for a long time (online checknin was unavailable). TSA at JFK also. Easy slow and my TSA precheck didn't appear for my pass."
Pros: "I like the confirt and the on time flight."
Cons: "As I'm pilot and being my first flight in a A380, I would like to visit the plane what was denied by a cabin crew."
Pros: "It was comfortable with plenty of space since no one was on the flight."
Cons: "The stop in Milan was unexpected and not marked on the ticket. It was irritating to stop in Milan and then have to reboard. I didn't notice when I was buying the ticket that the flight was a few hours longer than it could have been. I should have just booked my flight straight from Delhi to Europe. It would have been more efficient."
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: "My first time on Emirates and it was great. Lots of room and amenities even in economy. Food was surprisingly good."
Pros: "Great service, good food, lots of entertainment options."
Cons: "Hard to sleep with multiple service times"
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: "I like the seat is wider, more leg room. It's quite silent compare to 777. I also feels it's spacious compared to 777."
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: "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: "By far the best airline, from service to quality, all around awesome."
Pros: "The entire experience was first rate- an excellent web-based support network from flight planning through on-line checkin. Airport experience at both MXP and JFK was excellent.. attentive, efficient ground staff- as were aircrews on both our flights with Emirates. Top class, attentive.. really enjoyed the flight. And, we pushed back spot on time both legs."
Cons: "They work the aircraft hard and it shows in small details.. broken latch in the head, bits of trash in the seatback pocket... but still head and shoulders above their competition. Oh, and it'd be nice to have bar service better coordinated with dinner.. the bar showed up quite a while after dinner was handed out. Tough if you prefer wine with your meal."
Pros: "i liked the neatness and welcome"
Cons: "i did not like the food"
Pros: "Smooth flight, nice crew and decent food. Good infotainment although I couldn't find live TV in the Menu."
Cons: "The plane was uncomfortably COLD and DRY! Had two blankets on me and still sneezing. Seats were TIGHT!! Unbelievable!! Such a large plane had seats as small as baby car seats! Left the plane with red eyes, dry nose and aching joints!"
Cons: "very poor food and seating"
Pros: "It was more comfortable than a US carrier's coach class, but ,8 hours in coach is still rough."
"Crew members were not helpful and seemed to hate their lives. Pilot was one of the worst I've seen in my life. I'll fly with another airline next time."
Pros: "Crew was amazing, very attentive to our needs flying with an infant."
Cons: "Boarding process"
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: "Fligh on time."
Cons: "The food on board."
Pros: "Crew was attentive, friendly and helpful."
Cons: "Flight was cancelled because the operational issues. No information or help given. Their airport procedures and practices make it extraordinarily challenging and stressful for passengers. We’ll never fly with them again."
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: "Had to wait an hour in line at SFO to check in for Flight . Online check in was hard because there was a need for redress code ?"
Cons: "At boarding they went in two stages. First stage they called people to board by category first people that needed more time then families with small children etc. HOWEVER, the put all of us in an intermediate room and the door to the gate was closed. They passed everyone so when the gate door opened everyone were trying to get to the gate and there was no order. That was stupid to say the least. Turkish could have waited the couple of minutes needed to get the gate open!!! and save the hassle!"
Cons: "Waitwd 1 hour"
Cons: "I didn’t like the nearly 3 hour delay that caused me to miss my connection, and how poorly that was handled. I just lost one day of my 10-day vacation"
Cons: "The men’s bathroom near gate 226 smelled awful and the floor was very wet. In addition, I am handicapped and my gate changed from 226 to 208. NO ONE was there to help. There was no one at all at Turkish Care. I asked two different transportation representatives at the sky club and they refused to help in any way. I merely asked them to call Turkish Airlines, and they said they didn’t have the number. I begged both of them to call someone to help me, and they just laughed and said it wasn’t part of their job. I was horrified! I almost missed my plane.!"
Cons: "Unconfoetable seat for business class. No priority for boarding in business clas. Old plane."
Pros: "Everything- hot moist wash rags & overnight kit were luxury touches."
Cons: "From more than 1h layover to 5 minutes."
Pros: "The flight itself was very nice quality again. Crew was very friendly, priority boarding for international business. pod seating was super comfortable."
Cons: "No alcohol beverage service before take off. One of the only airlines that does this. Also flight was delayed again in Istanbul. We were delayed on our layover in, and out of Istanbul. Both times stuck on the tarmac. I see this as a common problem"
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."
Cons: "I didn’t like being in a middle seat"
Pros: "My experience on Turkish Airlines exceeded expectations. Boarding was smooth and the flight was on time. Service was excellent and staff professional. The crew was courteous but the hostesses could try smiling a bit more. Their courtesy was appreciated but it felt very methodical, more of an obligation and not spontaneous. The pilot did a great introduction and gave information about the trip. Also the plane toilets were clean compared to other companies. I expected to see a wider selection of more recent and award winning movies. Will definitely fly Turkish Airlines again."
Pros: "Hello there, so question about my trip beck to USA from Georgia, good is that I am beck in USA"
Cons: "this is what you will not like, Time and Timing, no limits and no frames, they can change everything in your flight, change date of arrival,, change Sit number which you already know that is yours, and so on and so on, not enough ???"
Pros: "Same as the first flight. Entertainment is good, foods good, crew was nice, USB charging is great."
Cons: "Kinda annoyed that it was a two prong plug for the headphones. It was super hot and I couldn't rest. Not a lot of space beneath seat in front for personal items."
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: "I already posted my remarks above"
Cons: "Same wrote above"
Pros: "Interior of the plane"
Pros: "Super friendly staff, lots of real food to eat, travel kits including slippers and tooth brush, like a throwback to when flying was fun."
Pros: "Food was tasty and fresh but staff cold and aloof"
Cons: "Great experience"
Pros: "Very nice crew and not at all crowded flight, also the flight was extremely fast."
Cons: "Very loud plane so that I couldn't watch a movie and understand the audio."
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: "it's mostly good"

Pros: "I liked everything about the flight."
Pros: "Food, entertainment, crew were all great"
Cons: "Very cold in cabin"
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: "Entertainment was Okay, and that was the best of it."
Cons: "Customer service gave us false information about delays, almost missed our flight. The check-in agent had to call for manager. And the manager told us if we didn't check-in online, they wouldn't have let us board our flight. The seats were cramped, the food is way worse than it was before. I doubt that we will fly with Turkish Airlines ever again."
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: "Everything was the best! The food, the movies etc on board to choose from, the staff, everything was great. Turkish airlines is the best airline I've ever been on—US companies need to take note! Even on a 2:10 flight we got a full meal and many drinks."
Cons: "Nothing! Everything was perfect!"
Cons: "Seating too narrow"
Pros: "Nothing, just the price"

Cons: "I did not like the fact that I was not on this flight."
Pros: "Crew, food and entertainment were fine"
Cons: "Notoriously, on several flights I have recently taken, my economy seats do not recline at all. On long distance flights this is very uncomfortable! And on this flight from Frankfurt to NYC, my bag was lost, making a claim at the Lufthansa baggage dept took a very long time and the clerk said little, explained nothing and seemed annoyed with my questions."
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."

With no meat or chicken at all , apparently they don’t know what the meaning of a muslim meal is ! It means to have halal meat , we are not vegetarians ! 3- my baggage didn’t arrive to the airport and I filed a report and was told that I will have them tomorrow and now after four days the baggage didn’t arrive yet and I was told that one of them is missing !!!!!!! I can’t hate them enough."
Cons: "There were no Lufthansa representatives in Frankfurt airport upon my arrival. Also my connecting flight wasn't showing on electronic board. I had to get WiFi connection in order to get any info. I was very unhappy about it ."

Pros: "General quality and competence."
Cons: "I find the seats in Economy rather uncomfortable (Premium Economy is way better, but too expensive for me)."
Pros: "The crew was working hard, most were extremely nice and helpful. Their service was excellent. I enjoyed the food and drinks. The plane was clean and looked well-maintained. Most of the flight was smooth."
Cons: "Flight from Munich to Charlotte: I do not fly that frequently (just only about 1 or 2 times per year - usually with Lufthansa) so I had no idea that as an Economy class passenger I cannot use the Business class bathroom. I admit my mistake for violating this etiquette. There was no line formed so I just used it, but as I was leaving the toilet a stewardess grabbed my arm and sternly made me aware of my trespassing. She was very professional and I believe it was not her intention; however, she made me feel very stupid for not realizing that the Business class toiled is for the Business class customers only. Don't get me wrong, if I paid premium for my fare I would probably expect less crowded toilets too. In my opinion, this unwritten rule should be made more explicit to the Economy class passengers, as nobody likes to feel embarrassed by mistakenly wandering into an exclusive club they don't belong to. I know there are separating curtains, but they were open. I saw a line forming in the Economy section so my next instinct was to go a different direction, which led me to the Business section. I really needed to use the bathroom, so I did not think of the proper etiquette at the moment."
Pros: "Nothing. Never was able to get on the flight"
Cons: "We couldn't check in for the next flight when we departed from Oslo. Disappointed we had to wait until arriving in Frankfurt. Something about not being partner airlines."
Cons: "Pilot strike caused much distress in Frankfort. The best that could be done was a layover extended by 5 hours and a diversion to Luxembourg. The final leg of the trip was further delayed an extra hour due to mechanical difficulties in Luxembourg."
Pros: "Nice staff"
Pros: "Flight attendants pretty good. Got lucky with one of the only 2-seater rows in the back of the plane. Good entertainment options."
Cons: "I'm only 5'2" (157cm) and slim but could barely move in my seat, and if the person in front leaned seat back, it was terrible. Food was lame, really salty and they did not come around with water enough."
Pros: "Crew was great... food was wonderful. The lie-flat seat made my day."
Pros: "The flights itself was ok. The flight attendants caused me no problems, and the flights, when I FINALLY got on them, were smooth."
Cons: "everything else. The franfurt airport closure made me miss school because they did not offer extra flights to accommodate all the displaced travelers. I had to stay in the Frankfurt airport for a FULL EXTRA DAY, and every time I tried to get a new ticket, or ask anyone for help, I was given the run around. No one was helpful. I talked to about a dozen Lufthansa employees that day and only one was helpful at all. It was a hellish nightmare. Before my last flight, I was furious with how I had been treated all day and a horrible Lufthansa woman yelled at me for being upset about the situation. Then, when after much hassle I finally got to my destination, I was told my baggage was lost. That was on thursday and I still have not gotten it. i am never flying lufhansa again. This was the worst trip of my entire life."
Cons: "on purposely made passengers miss connecting flight and did not genuinely try to help. Everybody follows so called policy like a robot regardless the circumstance. An airline with no feeling and emotion. Arrogant and don't care about passengers."
Cons: "I got a wrong flight from you, different than the one initially selected, upon my payment !...with 6 hours overlay instead of 50 minutes. For that I had to pay extra $300 !"
Pros: "More seating space on short flight then long flight bigger plane?"
Cons: "All good"
Cons: "Aircraft not comfortable at all Crew was late (due to storm?), flight landed 30 min late"
Pros: "Did not make the flight."
Cons: "I wish there was more of advance notice on this flight, instead it just gave us 23 hour reminder. We had booked this flight a year ago but we could not make this and the 23 hours was too short of a notice."

Pros: "Staff were polite"
Cons: "The seating space is horrendous, I am 5 ft 8 and felt like I was sitting with my knees at my chest, horrible horrible seating"

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: "Comfortable seat, friendly crew. Crew were conscious of recycling which I like a lot as there is so much waste on flight. Anything we can do to reduce waste is very welcome."
Cons: "Food wasn't very appetizing, pasta didn't have much flavor and I don't eat red meat so the other choice wasn't an option for me."
Pros: "Crew was amazing, seats were comfortable with enough leg space even without choosing extra space seats. It was my childhood dream come true to fly with KLM. It was really an exciting trip for me, just that it was short."
Cons: "Well, for me everything was on point. Those who have never travelled with KLM, I would encourage them to do so and I’m sure they will not regret."

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

Cons: "No wifi"
Pros: "Face recognition was amazing"
Cons: "Too hot on plane"
Cons: "Very slow service at checkin, was not even available when I arrived at the airport"

Pros: "Good entertainment options. Nice flight attendants"

Pros: "Need better quality tvs for such a long flight and better movies There were only 4 Bollywood movies and not the latest ones either"
Pros: "Good services!"
Cons: "Our two hour connection in Paris became 30 minutes because Air France was late in leaving Washington. So our luggage didn't make to to KLM to Amsterdam. My poor rating was because the luggage handling was really poor. Lots of flights from Paris to Amsterdam (almost hourly), but my bag showed up 12 hours later. My wife's bag took 36 hours. And yes, we checked in together. There were lots of confusing messages"
Pros: "Service, technology"
Cons: "Could not print by boarding card and was not allowed to board in Amsterdam"
Pros: "The time keeping was very good. We left on time and arrived early on both occasion. Good organisation. Excellent service."

Cons: "Service was a little slow going through the gate, it seemed to take a while for everyone to get on board."
Pros: "The food service was good and the flight attendants were friendly."
Cons: "The plane was very uncomfortable. The seats were small, you felt on top of the person next to you, and there was no leg room. I am a pretty small person- I can't image how uncomfortable all of the taller passengers must have been."
Pros: "The food was excelent"
Cons: "I have to pay to pay a little more confort"
Pros: "The supplied pack of toothpaste/toothbrush"

Cons: "No power to charge phones, laptops, etc and no WiFi available. For such a long trip (10 hours) below industry standard."
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."
