"Inaccurate flight time, need to improve customer service. It’s better for them to spend money on hiring professional staff instead of spending money on expensive ads."

Pros: "The seating was cramped for a 14 hours flight but the staff was excellent."
Cons: "Food options not always what I was expecting."

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: "Good"
Cons: "Good"

Pros: "Crew was very professional and served snacks and beverages at regular intervals. One of the fellow passengers was over reacting to some minor unintentional neglect by an female crew member and told her to shut up when she was trying to understand the issue. But the crew handled the situation very professionally."
Cons: "Food could’ve been better."

Cons: "No gate for departure or arrival. No business class longe in Cape Town."

Cons: "The Nairobi airport experience could use a bit of help. there's no a/c and even late at night, it was uncomfortably hot everywhere. Once I'd checked in to the gate I was trapped and couldn't easily leave to get water or go to the restroom, which was increasingly annoying as my flight was delayed. Pretty sure all of this is beyond Qatar Airways' ability to control."

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: "Boarding, restroom,"

Pros: "The crew was amazing and delightful."
Cons: "The crew was amazing and delightful but should provide food to kids first before even those special diet or vegetarians."

Pros: "The plane was new and spotless, the crew did everything possible to make the flight great. Food service, and Wine and Cocktails were always served with a smiling face and it made you think of flying many years ago. Service cleanliness of the restrooms and staff were top notch"
Cons: "Nothing really."

Pros: "Every thing"
Cons: "Service"

Cons: "Quatar is the best"

Pros: "amazing except for the entertainment system"
Cons: "Better entertainment system , 6 hours flight is tough without it"

Pros: "courteous service and a clean modern airplane"
Cons: "The sound system was inadequate on the TV and the headsets were uncomfortable. The queue at the check-in needs to be better controlled, it was a bit chaotic."

Pros: "Crew was not mean"
Cons: "The seats were very uncomfortable, entertainment screen had poor picture quality, eggs were black, stank + inedible, long bathroom lines , a child screamed most of the flight, no internet, couldn’t change phone, checked bags damaged - handles ripped off!!!"

Pros: "Ambiance"

Pros: "Everything frim the xrew I could at the JKIA, NBO to Delhi. One thing more from my city Lubumbashi, I didn't care about getting my phone bzttery low. I could chzrge my phone all the journey long. And from Nairobi, I dodn't czre at zll about my phobe, because I knew I could charge dur to the usb device. If ever something to complain about, I'll let you know. Regards Richzrd DIAS"

Pros: "Best airline I’ve ever flown. A lot more space and amenities for a great price. Boarding was easier and faster than any other airline I’ve ever taken"
Cons: "Wish there were a bit more movie selections but only because it was such a long flight"

Pros: "Comfort"
Cons: "Extra baggage was charged $250 for 1 extra baggage when other airlines change $70. Also on the Qatar Airway site it states that after 3 hours of the flight if seats are available business class upgrade would cost much less and this was not the case. They wanted $2000 for the upgrade."

Pros: "Excellent on board staff"

Pros: "I loved the service. All of the attendants were really nice and helpful."
Cons: "My tv on both 12 hr and 8 hr flights didn’t work well and the food wasn’t the best. Also they ran out of food options when they got to me twice."

Pros: "Punctual,taxied in time,generally food was good, landed twenty before time. There was head wind otherwise it would have landed earlier. Additional toilet may be considered. Thank"
Cons: "Additional toilet may be considered"

Pros: "Excellent service..!"

Pros: "Cabin crew service is excellent. Food is very nice. Safe travel."
Cons: "Little bit congested."

Pros: "The crew were excellent."
Cons: "There is nothing I didnt like"

Pros: "Staff was courteous. Food wasn't too bad. Plane was clean and modern. Ambiance was relaxing. This was a very pleasant flight compared to other airlines."

Cons: "Plane was full with some annoying passangers near me. The plane was not very new/clean."

Pros: "The cabin crew, the cabin crew, the cabin crew. Enough said. They are thoroughly trained and exhibited unparalleled professionalism"
Cons: "Ground/baggage handling in ATL. Bags took 40-50 minutes to show up on carousel. The ground staff at ATL dropped the ball when everything else was going so smoothly"

Pros: "Although we flew economy, we received excellent service from an attendant from the Philippines."
Cons: "We have no complaints."

Pros: "On time and 5 star service"

Pros: "Confi and relaxed atmosphere"

Pros: "Over all great"
Cons: "Nothing"

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 food was good. The legroom was enjoyable."
Cons: "I checked two bags and had them marked 'fragile', as I had valuables in there that I packed securely. When I retrieved the bags on the carousel, the fragile sticker was mangled, and both items from both bags were broken. Pieces of art I can not replace. Also, it took over 30 minutes upon multiple requests for the attendant to acknowledge my need for assistance."

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 food includes veg."

Cons: "horrible customer service at Doha Airport"

Cons: "It was all good"

Cons: "Plane configuration; seats were a bit cramped, knee space."

Cons: "No lie flat seats."

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: "Flight was on time ."
Cons: "The seating was not organized when people needed to bored. It was busy and people where rushing to get in the plane ."

Pros: "Food is palatable. Crew are acommodating"
Cons: "Many of the films have no English subtitle"

Pros: "Always heard middle eastern airlines where greats and Qatar didn't disappoint. The staff was amazing and the seats were comfortable and spacey considering it was economy. If I could do it again I would definitely fly with them again."
Cons: "Nothing really. Only thing would be you had to be pretty specific with the staff not be woken up because they ensured you were fed and hidrates (not necessarily a bad thing)"

Cons: "N/A"

Cons: "Plane seemed old and not upkeep. Chair in front of me leaned back to 5 inches from my face, every time he moved, the tray fell. The air seemed to be off in the front of the plane. Was sweating. But when I went to the bathroom in the back, it was cold"

Cons: "Realised that for short flights they do not supply headsets. This is rather strange, since the media content they have is useless unless there are headsets / paid or free whichever"

Cons: "Being a replacement flight due to delays in original flight from London, the airways chosen our seats beside the emergency exit my son who is 15 and other customer asked to swap seats for safty reasons which I fully support. computer and staff should be smart enough to choose for my son a proper seat."

"Emirates what could gone wrong"

Pros: "Somehow"
Cons: "Food service was very slow. Flight from Dubai Seattle did not provide PPE"

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

Cons: "The crew was good, but the attentiveness of the crew on the second leg was amazing"

Pros: "Good food. Professional crew. and overall good experience for a 15.5 hour flight."
Cons: "Again, If you allow people to choose tickets online and they pick the front row, at least don't put them in the back row. That is the opposite of what they requested. After a.long flight and the limited recline, I am very sore in my back. Probably the most uncomfortable flight to date in my travels."

Pros: "The crew is good."
Cons: "The check-in is a disaster. A F-class passenger is treated as a Y passenger. Luggage limited to 2 pieces, even as GOLD FF, was made to pay US$200 dollars on a ticket of already 3,500 dollars and the price is the same for F-C-Y! The treatment was really commerce, as if the check in gets a commission"

Pros: "I am so glad to choose you guys thank you for everything"

Pros: "The crew good except one man i guess from India"
Cons: "The food was not good at all"

Pros: "Food was phenomenal. Unbelievably good."
Cons: "Paid EXTRA for "Twin Seats". The bar in between seats didnt move. VERY uncomfortable for a 14 hour flight. People on that plane were like ANIMALS. Standing on the toilet seats, water all over the floor of the bathroom, out of toilet paper at 7 hours in. Disgusting. Never again."

Cons: "It was my first flight ever. So it was perfect thank you Emirates"

Pros: "Good flight and crew but......."
Cons: ".........they left my suitcase in Seattle and it didn’t get on the flight to Dubai AND they didn’t want to give me a voucher for accommodation in Dubai despite a 15hr. wait for trip to South Africa. For two hours I pursued different officials in Dubai until they organized a voucher for overnight acc"

Pros: "Boarding and Crew are excellent. That's why i prefer to fly with Emirates. Toilets are clean"
Cons: "On this flight, the Gluten Free snack wasn't good. Only one meal was served. For a 10 hour flight, there should be two meals. A snack was served towards the end of the flight. The GF snack was not good! it was two rice cakes with chicken inside. I felt as if they ran out of GF bread!"

Pros: "Exceptional flight super comfortable"
Cons: "That i didn't receive my bucket list dream of an upgraded flight but that literally was thing that could have improved a really great flight..."

Cons: "The Crew could be more friendly"

Pros: "Great crew, especially Emma from the US and Amanda from Canada."

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: "The flight was on time and the crew was nice."
Cons: "The entertainment options and food were outdated and very much unpleasant. Probably the ground staff was careless, thus, they just broke my one baggage in that transit."

Pros: "The crew was excellent and the food is very good. The portions were good and the drink selection is excellent."
Cons: "The seating room is poor for someone who is 6'2" tall. My wife had issues with her ankles swelling. When we tried to get a cold compress to put on them we never received it. We also asked for some fruit instead of the pizza snack and didn't receive it either. I know you don't have much control over passengers, but we had a two year old child in our seating area and it screamed and cried virtually the entire 14 hour flight. Very annoying."

Pros: "Comfortable seats, good entertainment and nice crew. The flight was good so I could sleep from time to time."
Cons: "The flight was supposed to have one stop in Dubai. But the return route was changed so we had 2 stops, one in Dubai and another one in New York with long hours until the next connection. I arrived in Seattle a day later which made me lose a working day."

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: "Well, the best thing was my free upgrade from Business into First ....which is perfect for the 14+ hours from Dubai to Seattle..... :)"
Cons: "I prefer the A380 to the 777-300 due to the availability of the bar/lounge area, and also the shower."

Pros: "I love the meal"
Cons: "Some crew member is bad customer service they're not pay attention on you."

Pros: "The crew & the ground personnel! Very polite, helpful & efficient!"
Cons: "I loved flying by Emirate! But not anymore! Too conjested!! You keep raising the fares but continue taking away the few perks that used to set you aside from other airlines! The food was less than ordinary! Sadly, you have taken away the open buffet between meals. This buffet of fresh fruit, chocolates & healthy bars were welcome & much appreciated! The little pouch with few essential things for travellers was very useful......you've taken take away too! Qatar, Turkish or Itthehad Airlines are beckoning me!"

Pros: "entertainment is great."
Cons: "completely full flight."

Pros: "entertainment part made time fly from Dubai to Seattle and staff too were awesome."
Cons: "15-hour flight not happy thing to be mid-air."

Cons: "No room to stretch feet out, couldn't straighten legs out. I walked as much as I could, but my ankles and legs were swollen for three days after flight."

Pros: "Sorry...pushed a button the it disappeared. Will try again... As always, returning home from an international two week trip is always thrilling but exhausting. The hours of travel seem slow. My half table of Advil PM worked wonders though. Gracious service, always willing to help myself and those seated around me. Clean bathroom facilities. Overall, I'm thrilled to be home safely."
Cons: "I picked slimly through my food. Nothing seemed too appetizing. The entertainment options were a bit difficult to navigate. Choices were a bit limited as well for a long flight."

Cons: "The crew were so friendly"

Pros: "The whole experience from boarding at DXB to landing at SEA was excellent. Crew was very friendly and patient and food was great."

Cons: "Despite booking wheelchair assistance throughout, my parents did not get that benefit."

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: "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: "their hospitality"
Cons: "The food"

Pros: "On time departure"
Cons: "No food at all, the same flight in the other direction had food."

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: "Flight staff was responsive and courteous."
Cons: "Seats are hard. Had to sit on pillow and blanket to soften. Entertainment screen did not work properly (would not follow finger movement - seat 45A. I did not tell staff."

Pros: "from start to finish Emirates has always got the best service for economy class, been flying EK from DXB BOM and SEA DXB BOM for last 10 years with complete satisfaction"
Cons: "no complains"

Pros: "enough leg room"
Cons: "the touch screen system was poor, limited movie choices, food taste, poor crew members etc"

Pros: "Entertainment selection and legroom were good Entertainment selection included recent movies in various languages and premium TV shows."
Cons: "Legroom in economy was good; however, seat width wasn't. You rub elbows with your neighbors while eating. Asian vegetarian meals were nauseatingly spicy - not the "hot" spicy type, but the cinnamon/cardamom overuse type. Most crew members gave a cold shoulder to passengers."

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: "Best long haul flight I have ever been on in economy. The flight was great, the only draw back was our seats were in the middle of the middle but for a last minute reservation we were happy to be sitting together. The leg room was good. The crew was phenomenal. The food delicious!! The toilets were clean throughout 14+hour flight."

Pros: "Crew and service were great. Food was very good."
Cons: "Seats in economy are tight. Headphone jack is two pronged and no adapter so you are forced to use their cheesy headphones. Bring your own adapter."

Pros: "There was sufficient legroom at the seat. Amenities were provided to remain "fresh". Not computer literate, the entertainment was more than adequate."
Cons: "I told the flight attendant while boarding that it was not appropriate to have very little children on a flight of this length. Much to my chagrin, an Indian woman had two howling urchins one row in front of me. These howling urchins proceeded to scream their lungs out for 11 of the 13 hours of the flight!! One of the babies was so small, it looked like she had just pushed the critter out earlier that day!! Had they told the Indian woman to drive or swim to Dubai, the ratings would've have been excellent. I did not pay good money to have to sit in a NURSERY!!!!!"

Pros: "i liked the neatness and welcome"
Cons: "i did not like the food"

Pros: "Flight attendants very very helpful in fixing some kind of mechanical error with my overhead light. When it was stuck on and the remote didn't work, they figured out they could reboot the system and turn it off. I'm glad I had my own headlamp so I could read during the flight, but overhead permanently off was much better than permanently on! I'm very grateful for their persistence in finding a solution. The agents at the Seattle location were very helpful assisting with our baggage problem, caused by Emirates gate agents in Dubai"
Cons: "The worst part of this trip was the surprise demand at the gate in Dubai that we check our duty-free liquor in a bag at the gate. There was no warning, no packaging to help protect our purchase, and no recourse We arrived in Seattle to find a liqour soaked bag. The liquor, of course, was a special gift and something we cannot simply repurchase. Very disappointing experience, especially after hearing good reviews of Emirate Air's generally good baggage handling and policies. The agents in Seattle helped remedy this, but it is a big hassle nonetheless as we arrive home to be dealing with damaged personal electronics and finding receipts all while jetlagged and getting back to work. my overhead light broke on the flight! but the flight attendants were very helpful and found a way to turn it off so I could sleep."

Pros: "The crew were courteous on the return flight, accommodating . They took too long to retrieve trash after food and drink services. The chairs recline too far back limiting the leg room, moreso knee room of the parties sitting behind the reclined chairs"
Cons: "See above"

Cons: "When I was boarding on my 14 hour flight from Dubai to the US, I was briefly informed by the Emirates boarding staff that my seat had been changed. I had specifically chosen my aisle seat because I like to stand often on long flights, so I was concerned that it had been changed. When I tried to get more information from the staff member, he dismissively said "Ma'am, this is a good seat" and handed me my ticket without even making eye contact. There was no apology or courtesy of any kind. I ended up with a window seat and I had to crawl over two other people throughout the 14 hour flight to use the restroom or stretch my legs. I expected more courtesy from the staff for this kind of inconvenience and will rethink my flight plans in the future to avoid Dubai."

"The seat back entertainment screen didn’t work at my seat. Staff was great."

"The plane was hot. my seatbelt was too small; of the 4 planes we were on on this trip, this was the only belt I had a problem with. The in-flight entertainment screen was not responsive so it was stuck on one movie the entire flight. This experience was very much unlike any other Delta experience."

"Airport experience is exhausting. Extremely long lines for check-in and then even longer lines at TSA. Hand sanitizer stations are almost all empty and in the mens room, people are crowding together to get soap from one dispenser that has just a bit left... flight was no better than Southwest Airlines, and it took over an hour for the bags to start coming out. Delta bag claim attendant just said, "I don't know what's going on with them, just wait a bit longer"."

"As with the outbound flight, this return flight was not full - maybe 40-50%. As they started boarding they announced they located a few people the help with 'load a balance' of the aircraft. What they had done was to compress all passengers in the middle of the plane leaving no space between anyone. It is difficult to understand why everyone is required to wear Masks, then relocated to remove all space between passengers, when there was ample room to allow everyone to be seated with space between."

"Great service during the pandemic."

"As a silver medallion I don’t know how to request upgrade and when I call delta I have been on hold 3 times for over 2 hours each and can’t reach anyone."

"Pilots found a smooth flight path! Wowza!!"

Pros: "Crew was amazing. Very attentive and welcoming."

Cons: "No baggage space in overheads. Despite being in an early boarding group"

Pros: "We flew from Anchorage to Boston via Seattle. If there had not been a delay in Anchorage, the flight would have been excellent. However, there was a mechanical problem earlier in the day with a plane to Cincinnati. Our flight was scheduled to leave Anchorage at 4pm, but Delta decided to take our pane from us and use it as a substitute for the original but nonfunctional Cincinatti plane. A ridiculous decision. The Cincinnati people already had missed all their connections, but now all the Seattle people missed theirs as well. When we finally got to Seattle 3 hours late (just before midnight), the desk agent said that Delta had no hotel rooms for us and also no hotel vouchers. We thus had to find a room and pay for it on our own. The next day, we had been rescheduled to Detroit and then on another flight from there to Boston. The flight to Detroit arrived nearly 30 minutes late, and we just barely made our connection. Had we missed it, we would have had to spend that night in Detroit. Delta did its best to keep the two of us together. On the Seattle-Detroit flight we were on opposite sides of the aisle in the same row, but that was in a row right behind a bulkhead, making it easy for us to walk over to each other. On the Detroit-Boston flight we were next to each other. Both flights were completely full, so Delta must have made some effort to keep us together as well as possible."
Cons: "Delta should not have made the dumb decision to take the Seattle-bound plane and use it as a substitute for the malfunctioning Cincinnati plane. Delta should have provided accommodations for the stranded travelers once they arrived in Seattle."

Cons: "Had unknown jump grade to much better seats No explanation given Too bad it wasn’t on a 6 hour flight"

Pros: "The crew members were nice and didn't bother while sleep when giving out snacks & drinks (I've had this done to me before, annoying). Plane was comfortable because it wasn't packed, so was able to have a seat empty in-between me. The entertainment offered was really good, the connecting to the Go-inflight WiFi was a bit difficult, but no biggie."
Cons: "THE DELTA TERMINAL AT HARTSFIELD AIRPORT, ATLANTA, IS DIS-ORGANIZED!!!! THERE WAS NO ONE GIVING PROPER INSTRUCTIONS FOR DROPPING BAGS OFF, PEOPLE WERE EVERYWHERE IN EVERY KIND OF MADE LINE!!! ALMOST 30 - 40 MINUTES OF WASTED TIME, THIS AND THE SLOWEST TSA PROCESS CAUSED MANY TO PROBABLY MISS THEIR FLIGHTS, INCLUDING ME (THANKFULLY MY FLIGHT WOUND UP BEING 3HS DELAYED - THAT'S NEXT). DELTA SHOULD INFORM TRAVELERS ABOUT TIMES WITH THEIR BAG DROP AND TSA!!! 3HRS TO GET A SMALL PART THAT ONLY TAKES 2 MINUTES TO FIX, I'M VERY GRATEFUL IT WAS FOUND WHILE ON THE GROUND, BUT AFTER 1 AND HALS HOURS COULDN'T WE HAVE JUST CHANGED PLANES!?!?! I WAS SUPPOSED TO BE HOME AFTER 10A, WASN'T UNTIL ALMOST 2P.."

Pros: "everything was just as comforting as it was pre-pandemic"

Pros: "Being upgraded was a GREAT surprise !"
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "I waited for over 40 minutes for someone to answer my call button. And then they just turned it off without asking me or anyone in my row if we needed something."

Pros: "Quick flight with basic service."

Pros: "Crew was nice"
Cons: "Nothing really"

Pros: "Pilots and crew were amazing"
Cons: "It was perfect"

Pros: "The crew was great and very friendly."

Pros: "The little food packets were cool and convenient."

Pros: "We've always enjoyed flying Delta and this trip had been just as nice as the previous ones we have taken through this airline."
Cons: "Our stewardess/stewards seem to be incredibly cranky on this trip and very unapproachable. They must have been having an "off" day I guess."

Pros: "Cleanliness. Safety. Friendly."

Pros: "Crew was solid."
Cons: "Don’t change my seat. Not on time. No food. Luggage with legally checked firearm sent to the wrong airport."

Pros: "Pilots. Flight attendants. Space. Left and arrived on time."

Cons: "Nothing that I can think of at the moment"

Cons: "The mask mandate needs to be voluntary ADA violation"

Cons: "It was actually quite good, Delta is by far the airline to use compared with the other airlines."

Pros: "Crew was great, comfort+ definitely has more leg room."
Cons: "Beer not guaranteed on flight for Delta comfort plus."

Cons: "The flight was delayed by 3 hours because of storms in Atlanta earlier. This caused us to miss our connection to Fairbanks in Seattle, so we had to spend the night in Seattle at our own cost."

Cons: "connecting flight left without 1/6th of its passengers. Stuck at airport now because of Deltas laziness"

Pros: "Crew is amazing and friendly"

Cons: "The cabin temperature was very hot"

Cons: "Flight into Seattle delayed, flight out of Seattle to Minneapolis delayed flights out of Minneapolis to Bismarck delayed. Ran from gate F to gate c24 arrived at 10:23 p.m. Slight to the park at 10:25 p.m. and they closed the door on me as I was running up there. Ran across the entire terminal to get there and they would not let me on. Last Flight of the night to Bismarck. Missed my uncle's 90th birthday party. Would not give me food voucher. Delta gate agent told me she would lose her job if she did not close the doors 8 minutes prior. However the Minneapolis flight waited for 15 minutes for people to board that plane. How does that compute? Why would they not wait 3 minutes for me rather than pay the money to put me up in a hotel?"

Cons: "Miniature candy bars are not sufficient for an hour and a half flight."

Cons: "Food is always bad."

Pros: "Good choice of movies but not all have subtitles, which comes in handy since phones are not really good. Food was great!"
Cons: "Seating pitch is just not acceptable for 10+ hrs long flight! I am tall (1.92 cm) but there are taller people than me and there is just no way they can sit in economy class seat! That is basically some kind of racism.."

Cons: "It made no sense to board an hour and a half before takeoff."

Pros: "Every one but the gate agent at Detroit going to Seattle at 7:40 loading time on 4-11-19. She was mean and curt and would not get my seat corrected I had to sprint for at least a mile to even make it. We landed the same time they were boarding"
Cons: "The attendants on the Detroit to Seattle flight suggested I go talk to the gate agent to get my seat corrected. They said the flight was not full. So I did. To be greeted again by the mean agent you told me to take my rear and get it on the plane that the attendants didn’t know anything"

Pros: "Quick boarding process"
Cons: "Wifi stopped working halfway"

Cons: "Great"

Pros: "Boarded and left JFK on time and arrived 15 minutes early to Seattle. Love DELTA."

Pros: "The nice staff and entertainment options."
Cons: "I usually fly delta and have a great experience - unfortunately my flight from Detroit to Seattle was not. To start off, i was flying with two other people and we were not able to get seats together, and the whole seating process with delta is really difficult even when I had called weeks in advance to see if they could try and seat us together. I understand with main cabin tickets you can only choose your seat as you check in, but it would be nice to be able to request seating with a person/group you are flying with. I was placed in the very back row of a busy flight, and noticed that the horrible smell from the bathrooms which made it unpleasant. As said above, I normally have a pleasant experience.. but being a delta sky member I feel as though i do not really receive any differences as to a non-member. I hope this review helps for the next customers! Thank you."

Pros: "I like Delta but this crew had such a shi**y attitude it was contagious. Yikes!"
Cons: "The gate staff and the flight staff. Rude"

Pros: "We boarded quickly, in zones. Staff were professional and courteous."
Cons: "Perhaps more than just 2 episodes of some TV programs eg Goldrush. Also more current shows."

Pros: "Delta has great seats, friendly employees and engaged managers and pilots. Even their customer service Center reaches out to help on suggestions. I am flying to Portland for School over 40 round trips and I am saving $4,000 vs Alaska Air. Plus I get miles and discounts with the Delta Amex Card. I am very pleased."
Cons: "I don’t like harsh change in schedule fees but it forces me to plan. I wish the Seattle to Portland Eve flight landed in time to catch Portland Rail system at 11:50 PM"

Pros: "Tons of free entertainment on the screen in front of your seat! Movies, games, and details on your flight, all available on your touch screen. USB charging is also available."
Cons: "No one told us they wanted everyone with a roller carry-on to.check their bags. An attendant told my sister that her bag needed to be checked. We did not receive this notification until we were at the gate, boarding."

Pros: "I LOVED the 2 seater plane, so comfortable traveling with a companion and not having the third person."
Cons: "Boarding. It seems that it would be smarter to board from the back forward. I didn't have any food so I rated that wrong. Maybe add an N/A to the survey."

Pros: "The flight was quick and quiet with a kind crew and captain that had a great smile."
Cons: "I didn't like the food."

Pros: "Very on-time and fast, respectful crew."
Cons: "The airplane was old and with no entertainment."

Pros: "There were only two lines. The economy line took so long because there were many passengers checking in their fish catch boxes. So those of us with only one baggage were lumped with them. There was no option to tag your own bag if you alr day checked in, as it was the same checking and bag drop line."
Cons: "If we were standing in line for a long time, I hope they can increase the number of counters. They can also dispense with the nonsense chitchat. It's not needed, just move it along. The roving staff should to remind those next in line to prepare their documents, it seems the lady at the counter had to ask for photo ID every time!"

Pros: "The best airline ever! Super friendly crew and staff, great customer service and nice planes. Love KLM!"

Cons: "Klm is the best, even on a 40min they served small breakfast."

Cons: "I paid for the preferred seat .and i found that people beside me didnt pay anything when i asked them ,"

Cons: "The food was terrible."

Pros: "The aircraft"
Cons: "No overbooking next time!"

Pros: "Nothing!"
Cons: "We were told they were holding our flight, we ran 3 terminals and they’d already left."

Cons: "I called for a crew member 5 times and waited 25 minutes for anyone to help me with just some water. I had to get up and go to the very back of the plane to ask for some water. The plane was hot and no air to be found. This was all after we had to get back off the plane before takeoff. It was terrib"

Pros: "Best airline in the business quick efficient and outstanding service What else can you say"

Cons: "At the check in they made me pay 50€ for my luggage. This is really upsetting because from Houston to Venice they didn't make me pay. Either the website wasn't transparent or the lady at the desk made a mistake. Very upsetting, one luggage should be included."

Pros: "Crew was in a festive mood, the meal was unexpectedly delicious"
Cons: "Seats ok, but could be more comfy"

Cons: "Check in at Berlin was extremly slow. Staff was very unprofessional and not very friendly."

Cons: "Really poor entertainment choices esp compared to my inbound AirFrance flight. Boarding was pretty disorganized and late."

Pros: "The food service was good and the flight attendants were friendly."

Pros: "Nice crew"
Cons: "Not loose my luggage:)"

Cons: "The Premium Eco seats are a catastrophe. They don't recline: the seats only slide down slightly but the upper part of your body doesn't move much. This makes for a poor experience, especially on a night flight. Except if you need the extra width, Eco has better value."

Cons: "Delay in take off 45 min!!!!"

Cons: "Comfort plus seats need some work. Very thin padding on a hard seat. The leg rest needs to come up higher so you don’t slide down while semi reclined. Nice compromise between business and coach though."

Cons: "TSA was sketchy and gave a FULL search, part down, etc. I kept asking and the excuse kept changing. Final excuse ridiculous! Flight attendant could have not treated my son as he way he did.

Pros: "Good seat width Great movie selection Great food and drinks Nice and large A380"
Cons: "The interface of the screens seemed old Need to anticipate the needs of the customer better For example, they brought me my special meal first, but I had to wait 30 minutes later to get a drink to accompany it.

Cons: "The flight was late, real late."

Pros: "Easy, fast, comfortable, no hassles"

Cons: "Movies were dated. Crew spoke limited and broken English, not good enough for international flights."

Pros: "Charmingly nice crew and involving captain"
Cons: "the delay of the flight, the drinks we had to pay in the lounge, some poeple got a 25$ compensation coupon and we didn’t. The connecting time was about 1 hour and the luggage was not put on the plane to beirut"

Cons: "It was very hot in there probably hotter than it should be. Not much air flow I was sweating the whole flight. Because of this I couldn't sleep it was kinda miserable not gonna lie."

Pros: "Space"
Cons: "Couldn't adjust the seat and the cushion wasn't comfortable neither seat or back. The bottom back was like a board across the bottom and hurts."

Pros: "Kind, courteous, attentive crew. Smooth flight."

Cons: "Airport handling is catastrophic. A lost bagage created the twins to be locked. Half an hour and we could not enter. Delays and huge mess in front of police checkpoint. No announcement and no care for passengers approaching departure time. And to top it all no announcement of any delays. Had to cheat my way through the priority line and run a sprint through security and beyond. Reached the gate to note that there was a delay of 5 minutes.... Grrrr"

Pros: "Although plane was full staff moved us through quickly"
