Pros: "TImings"

Cons: "Snacks, and drinks"

Cons: "The crew was overly aggressive with mask policy enforcement. They patrolled the aisles and routine pointed at passengers directing them in a hostile manner to keep their masks on their faces, even when they were trying to eat or drink. They also threatened customers by stating it was a federal law several times. It was very uncomfortable to say the least. I will not fly delta again by choice."

Pros: "The plane was 2 hours late and I could not get home. Missed the connection to Greenville at 11:38. They told me there were no hotels in Atlanta and I would have to stay in the airport and then take the 8:55 am fight to Greenville. That took an hour in line and there was no help."
Cons: "The pilot was awesome. He flew as fast as he could to help anyone make their connection but it didn’t help. But I appreciate him trying. Just frustrated that being military I didn’t get to board earlier or that they didn’t help me find a way home"

Pros: "Crew was friendly and graciously got the hot tea I wanted."

Pros: "I like flying delta. They always serve drinks first"
Cons: "It’s such a long flight. Not your fault."

Pros: "Nice Airbus plane. Due to thunderstorm in Dallas, pilot not able to leave DAL to come to fly the plane in LAX on time. We delayed around 45 minutes. Otherwise, crews were professional and efficient. Excellent movies choices."
Cons: "Boarding announcement in SFO was bad. No one can hear what the agent announced. Random sequence of boarding with confusion. In LAX, we supposed to go to a different terminal by a bus. There is no guidance out of gate to assist passengers that transfer to get on the right gate on the right bus. In AUS, there is not any announcement for luggage belt. An announcement would be helpful to new arrivals to this airport."

Pros: "Snacks that include a dairy free option like the kind granola bar"
Cons: "We were delayed like crazy."

Pros: "The plane left on time and arrived on time."
Cons: "I did not like the fact that the food they served made my child sick. But hey, that is a given. Most airplane food sucks. But it shouldn't make a person sick. The flight staff was okay, but not nearly as professional and friendly as the crew flying to Lisbon. Thankfully none of them ran over my foot with the metal cart."

Pros: "The flight was very good, no complaints, good service and we flew on schedule"
Cons: "We were split into two boarding groups, one for priority and one for everyone else. This was good but the priority line was just a bit too far away for the announcements to be heard. This added a little bit of confusion. This was at gate B36 at JFK Airport's Terminal 4."

Pros: "Excellent very good good"
Cons: "Good service good"

Cons: "Severe delay"

Cons: "It was very hot in the cabin during the flight. Several passengers noticed."

Pros: "Awesome customer service"
Cons: "No complaints"

Pros: "Nice crew, no delays"

Pros: "Great friendly crew. Great entertainment with movies on a short narrow body flight!"
Cons: "Boarding and disembarking was again slow. Must be a cultural thing as each flight in the US seems to be like this as people take ages to get their bags organised on arrival. Chaotic boarding is compounded by the back of the plane boarding last.... everywhere else in the world loads everyone together or does the back of the plane first and it's much quicker!"

Cons: "Delta’s computer system was down. Long wait at the counter even though I did web check-in."

Cons: "Delayed for no reason"

Pros: "The selection of movies to watch was very good."
Cons: "No snacks passed out"

Pros: "Nice flight a good crew"

Pros: "It was a great flight."

Pros: "Crew was kind, entertainment and food were good"

Pros: "The flight was great, the food really tasty and really nice plane."
Cons: "Standing in line for 5 hours without knowing what I'll be able to do. My entire body still hurts!"

Pros: "Excellent customer service"
Cons: "Wasn't anything to not like other than the passengers that try to rush off plane the moment it arrives at the gate."

Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Boarding was a little slow and a few minutes late taking off but still made it on time"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Two out of three flights were delayed, customers service of the flight operated by Delta airlines is a nightmare and on top of it 2hours and 40min delayed. No drinks, no snacks, nothing."

Pros: "Great plane very comfortable"
Cons: "Everything great. On yome"

Pros: "Food was OK, ice cream at mid-flight was my favorite thing. I liked the choice of movies. Drinks are also good but why not include pure cranberry juice? It goes great with vodka."
Cons: "Boarding is ridiculous. Everyone who is not some kind of VIP is asked to line up and is treated like cattle. 5-feet tall woman holds above her head a sign with the zone currently boarding. Nobody can hear or see anything. Why not use the big LCD displays at the gate??? In the plane they had to restart the computer system as some TVs were not working and it took longer than they said. Toilets were kind of stinky and I could smell them from my seat on row 26. Blankets are way too thin for the blasting AC."

Pros: "Attentive crew, good atmosphere, comfortable seating.(no free food so 3* but short flight so OK) Pre flight...Soo helpful, wonderful assistant. Delta vs KLM...Not so...See below:"
Cons: "Little time for plane change at Atlanta. Atlanta rail excellent but plane arrival was late and time to cross airport limited. This was especially galling as I was at MCO early enough to catch the 1hr prior flight and requested a transfer to travel with a friend. There were seats available and Delta tried to move me but KLM would not allow it????"

Pros: "Friendly crew, on time"

Pros: "I liked the in-flight entertainment and the crew was very pleasant"
Cons: "The seats are awful. If you're 6 ft or taller, your legs barely fit if at all. Boarding is ridiculous."

Pros: "Fast boarding, crew, entertainment."
Cons: "Not enough lavatories, space is crazy small and the time should be changes. Arriving at 8am after spending half day awake is crazy. Unless you sleep the entire flight wI think no food no restroom."

Pros: "Timely departure."
Cons: "My daughter was traveling alone (as a college freshman) for the second time and her bag was overweight. The counter agent was impatient with her and made her feel embarrassed"

Cons: "Delta Flight #1494 On my return flight, I had to pay for a 2nd ticket to fly out early since Delta was cancelling flights to the south and I didn’t want to get stuck in Philadelphia. When the plane arrived for a layover in Atlanta, there was a flight going on from the first 2 people waiting to deplane. In my distraction and fear, I left my water bottle next to my seat. When I realized that I had left it, I went back to the gate and told the gate attendant that my bottle was next to my seat. She would not call down to the plane, nor walk down, and told me I had to wait until the entire flight had boarded. I explained that my connecting flight was boarding across the airport. The bottle was expensive and had great sentimental value. A couple times, I tried to ask people boarding the flight if they would tell a flight attendant to retrieve my bottle. The gate attendant told the boarding passenger to ignore me. When the flight had completely boarded, the gate attendant went down to the plane only to return to me to tell me that the flight attendant(s) allowed the cleaning crew to take the bottle. The gate attendant called the cleaning service and then she told me that the bottle was waiting at the tower and that I could ask at my next gate to have the bottle delivered to that gate. Since my connecting flight had already started boarding I had to run/train it across the airport to arrive at the gate. When I told the 2nd gate attendant, the story and asked him to call the tower to get my bottle, he told me that “wasn’t a thing” and that the 1st gate attendant lied to me. I had to board since they were getting ready to close the plane. This incident was compounded to many unpleasant experiences I’ve had with Delta over the past few years (losing my luggage and lying about it, damaging my suitcase, etc., etc.). I don’t understand how you can continue to be successful as an airline when you run your operation the way Delta does."

Pros: "*departed and arrived on time. *the only male flight attendant was full of smiles and friendly to everyone."
Cons: "The Two female flight attendants standing just behind business class giving the safety demo need to be more professional and take it seriously. They were chatting back n forth, rolling eyes, and didn't fully show how to use the life jacket or oxygen mask."

Pros: "Disappointed not to get a better seat as a Dimond member I was assigned to last row in the plane!!!"

Pros: "Sadly, nothing"
Cons: "Big bulky guy next to me insisted on using all of the armrest, all the time. Crew only greeted white passengers with a smile - which is something I'm noticing in many Delta flights (don't see that happen on Virgin or Alaska) I could see the luggage handlers throwing each bag onto the conveyor belt like they had a personal vendetta against each bag. They made an extra effort to toss each bag IN THE AIR so it lands with a thud. Seriously apalling!"

Pros: "The crew was amazing"
Cons: "The WiFi"

Pros: "Business class upgrade"
Cons: "Sitting in window next time"

Pros: "The crew. The punctuality."
Cons: "The confort of the seats."

Cons: "Had our luggage checked for connecting flight in Frankfurt"

Cons: "More space on economy for long flights."

Cons: "Well,my whole trip was an adventure! I booked it online but in reality, it wasn't what was advertised. There was a problem with my checked in bag, so i had to pay 22 pounds extra to fit it in a connection flight and now i have to send receipt to get the refund. On my way back, there was a delay, so"

Pros: "Very helpful crew, good food."
Cons: "Flight was one hour late."

Pros: "very on time (before time actually), great crew - professional but also very friendly and you could see they liked their journey that day."
Cons: "for that flight really nothing - great."

Pros: "Friendly crew, great in flight beverage and snack service, bassinets for babies, comfortable flight"
Cons: "Play area for babies in economy class"

Pros: "The problem was with the booking, cancelled flights- under stable- but nobody willing to make it right. Flights still screwed up"
Cons: "Give some customer service to your paying customers. Don't make a bad situation worse. Practice a can do attitude. Very disappointed in customer service. Not the flight itself."

Pros: "The flight was on time."
Cons: "One of the flight attendance made hand gestures indicating eating when I asked him to repeat the dinner choices. That was very rude."

Pros: "On board crew was friendly and helpful"
Cons: "Muslim meal does not mean all Muslims eat curry. It’s rediculous that we cant have a decent English breakfast instead you get curry or some form of curry for breakfast, lunch and supper. Your so called Muslim meals are not suitable for kids!! There is no such thing as a Muslim meal either. It’s simply called Halal otherwise then everyone else’s meals should be called Christian or Jewish meals etc. Also I requested help with transfer to my last flight which was horrendous because I’m one adult with 4 kids ages 1 to 11 and my eldest has sever learning disability. I nearly missed my flight because our flight landed late and I was struggling to keep my kids safe and together while running for the next flight. Somone should have been there to help with transfer."

Pros: "Lufthansa is great to fly with!"

Cons: "There is definetely not much space for passengers in economy' especially for such long flights and when the seat in front of you is inclined. Not pleasant to eat nor to watch movies. I had to slid in and out my seat whenever I wanted to go to the bathroom."

Pros: "The service on board was excellent."
Cons: "Boarding got a little bit chaotic for families with small children."

Pros: "Middle seat was empty in business class"
Cons: "Business class leg room was not much, if any, more than in economy but the ticket cost sure was a lot more."

Pros: "Crew was ok. Had to manage difficult passengers."
Cons: "No entertainment. Average food. Little space for legs."

Pros: "La atención del personal y el sistema de entretenimiento."
Cons: "La comida, no tenía buen sabor. El avión es poco cómodo (Airbus A340, clase económica)."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Big chaos on airport: 3x changed the Gate, workers at boarding don’t speak English and ask me to speak Germany...everything was terrible and I never use Lufthansa again and don’t recommend to anybody..."

Pros: "Clean aircraft, very friendly crew, good food, overall great trip."

Pros: "On time Boarding was convenient"
Cons: "Food Seats"

Pros: "High quality service, attentive flight attendances, as always on Lufthansa."

Pros: "Firstly, the food was great!"

Cons: "I didn't like going downstairs to the bathroom. I'm sure there is a good reason why we did it. Also, the seats are too close together for a trip of that length of time."

Pros: "Food, drinks, crew hel;pful"
Cons: "Boarding was not orderly, stupid system of delayed displaying of gate assignment"

Cons: "Luggage didn’t make a Lufthansa connection even though both flights w."

Pros: "Courteous and friendly staff - did enjoy my gluten free meal"
Cons: "Economy seats leave no room for relaxed arms - i had mine in front of me for 9 hours as the seat was SO small! As am I!!"

Pros: "I was upgraded after all the pressure from thehurrricane this was the icing on the cake"

Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Entertainment system wasn't working. 11 hour flight. Boring. No seat change available. No reading light, as light controlled by entertainment system. Seats in front of toilet cluster lit up every time door was opened. Crew were slow to react. Wasn't a priority. Ruined the excellent first leg of had from Philadelphia to Frankfurt. Do they run inferior planes to South Africa compared to USA?"

Pros: "After the delay I was given a spot on the direct flight so I didn't have to deal with the complications of the connecting flight. The staff was nice and helpful."

Cons: "Less knee room than usual. Very cramped."

Cons: "Delayed taking off due to airport queue."

Pros: "All the staff was very friendly and helpful."
Cons: "Terrible leg room."

Pros: "Surprised by so many entertainment options!"

Pros: "Great"

Pros: "I liked it overall"
Cons: "I absolutely hated and was very surprised at the completely illogical step of making people who have connection flights wait. Lufthansa was the one that scheduled two of my flights so close together, not letting people with connection flights to un-board first is completely counterproductive. Most other airlines let people with connecting flights unboard first."

Cons: "flight was late; food was not so great, lunch and dinner were the same; :-("

Pros: "Nice crew, made an effort to find a special meal that was ordered for the original connecting flight and was not transferred to the alternate flight since I boarded on standby."
Cons: "Had to sit on a window seat since due to a delayed previous flight I missed my connection and boarded on standby. I have long legs and it was extremely uncomfortable and painful to sit there."

Pros: "Main issue was the food was not as expected, it was a problem with kids food. Entertainment was also with No update movies, more of them classic or old."

Pros: "Lufthansa makes you feel like you're flying first class...even when you're flying in an economy cabin seat!"

Pros: "Quick flight, efficient boarding."
Cons: "Seats weren't very comfortable, but it was a short flight. Our layover was too short and our passport verification process almost made us miss our flight."

Pros: "Flew Boing -747 in economy. Wireless internet was nice, but very slow. Food was good, crew was offering water and juice quite often during a flight. Right on schedule. Good price, but had to cough up $100 for a second piece of luggage."
Cons: "Strange selection of movies, outdated earphones, USB wasn't charging my phone."

Pros: "THE MAIN CREDIT FOR LUFTHANSA FLIGHTS ARE VERY PUNCTUAL IN TIME"

Cons: "Flight was delayed 4 hours and resulted in missing FRA - DEL flight. No help at Air Canada with rebooking missed flight."

Pros: "The direction"
Cons: "One flight attendant was rude to me"

Cons: "Engine malfunctioned. Flight delayed 7 hours. All connections missed. Spent night in marginal hotel in Frankfurt."

Pros: "The flight attendants were WONDERFUL . Extremely patient. Baileys in my coffee was a nice touch!"
Cons: "overcrowded -surrounded by families with children-small seats, large person next to me. A bit claustrophobic."

Pros: "Great crew and service; food was good. On time departure and early arrival."

Cons: "Boarding was delayed; we were left remaining standing at the gate for much time later than the scheduled boarding"

Cons: "Lufthansa is not handing out any bottles. Water is served in small plastic glasses and does not come by often enough. I got off the plane dehydrated."

Pros: "So rude crew"

Pros: "The seats were so comfortable"

Pros: "Food was great, movie selection too. Everything was great except for I couldn’t really get comfortable to sleep"
Cons: "Not sure how to make the seats more comfortable. I have some back issues though. However, some of my travel companions slept right through the flight."

Cons: "The only complaint I had was that it was very warm on the flight (and I usually get cold on flights), and in the seats we had there weren't fans above the seats. A few rows up they had fans, so apparently you have to pay extra for air... This wouldn't be a big deal on a short domestic flight, but for an international flight it was a long time to be uncomfortable!"

Cons: "Delay due to strike"

Pros: "Everything works and quick to get to destination."

Pros: "Great airline"

Pros: "Newer plane, crew was amazing, seats were adjustable"

Cons: "I congratulate the KLM crew!"

Pros: "Crew was great, very responsive and hospitable!"
Cons: "more lunch choices, especially choices without dairy products."

Pros: "KLM never disappoints, the cabin crew was extremely kind and helpful!. The food was great, nice leg room in regular economy class, thousands of movies and tv shows...it was great!"
Cons: "Well there was a LOT of turbulence but no one can control the weather and shout out to the pilot for giving us such a smooth landing a rough weather!"

Pros: "The bed was comfortable. Entertainment selection and large TV screen was good. The KLM crew is amazing, as usual."
Cons: "Food quality was not so good."

Cons: "Head support for 6 feet plus people on seats would be good"

Pros: "Seat was uncomfortable. There was nothing to like. In past I have traveled by KLM but this time it was worst."
Cons: "No proper food service. Even to the passenger of Amsterdam no dinner was served. No inflight service. It looks like domestic flight. I will think twice to travel by KLM. The check-in staff at counter was absolutely arrogant. Staff ar boarding gate was nice."

Pros: "The crew is really welcoming"
Cons: "The seats are too narrow and a bit too hard"

Pros: "General flight journey"

Pros: "Seat was good"
Cons: "Depart on time (1 hour late), hostess put a laptop in the overhead, which fell out and hit me when the bin was opened"

Pros: "Crew was very engaging and service was good."
Cons: "My seat was horrible. Right at the door, crammed, and no place to store my carry-on luggage."

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: "The crew was amazing and the food was great."
Cons: "Something did not go right with our booking so it took some work for the airline to get it figured out for us. Thankfully we had left plenty of time. But that was an unexpected stress."

Pros: "Crew were great, food, entertainment, seat and everything else was great as well."

Pros: "The crew were very nice, food was tasty, seat comfortable and the entertainment great as well. Will be flying KLM again soon :)"

Cons: "Need more leg room!!! Larger meals needed."

Pros: "Friendly and efficient crew. Flights were on time if not even early."

Pros: "The flight AMS to MEX was smooth, very helpful personnel on board, we enjoyed a bit more space and the seat seemed a bit more comfortable."
Cons: "Besides the seat relative comfort, it did not recline much at all, i wondered what the extra money (at least $5 or $600) got us. The food, wine/ beer service was same as regular economy, the boarding took place at same time as economy, no drink before take-off if only sparkling water. And the plane was old generation 747 and the entertainment was same vintage: screen was not very bright and the selection of films was poor. No plug to charge electronics. We were disappointed with KLM when comparing with other airline companies offerings when you book in Premium Economy."

Pros: "Boarding agent extra effort to improve my seating!"
Cons: "Food amount less than expected."

Cons: "Trouble checking in regarding a visa issue?.. no other trouble at the other airports.."

Pros: "Crew was excellent -kind nice and very attentive"
Cons: "Entertainment went out mid flight. Had to be reset off 30 mins but cam back up"

Pros: "punctuality of boarding and flight time"
Cons: "attitude of crew in business class: no sense of true hospitality"

Cons: "You are almost always late!"

Pros: "The boarding was easy and you didn't have to wait inline for that long"
Cons: "KLM needs to upgrade the entertainment. It was very hard to see the images on the screen. The planes that KLM uses are old and they sure need to be upgraded."

Pros: "Able to fly direct to ansterdam"
Cons: "Have to lay over on the way back. More expensive than other airlines."

Pros: "Left ontime and service was excellent."

Pros: "Crew were friendly. Flight was comforyable smooth and on time. Nice snack."

Cons: "They stole my money"

Pros: "Flight was lovely, crew were friendly and very helpful and food was delicious!! We travelled with assistance for mum and it was excellent and we were kept updated all through the flight."

Cons: "KLM crews look unhappy with their work. Everything they do is a favor not duty."

Pros: "Excellent experience with the cabin crew."
Cons: "Seats on the 777 were too narrow. This 777 had a 3-4-3 seating arraignment, it would have been better with a 3-3-3, similar to a 787 configuration. With the current layout, even with an aisle seat, I was sitting in the aisle. And I am not a large person! The flight was full, so use the 787 and two daily non-stops. For a twelve hour flight, the food was only Okay, could have been better and with a better selection. Meal timing was poor."

Pros: "Got to Amsterdam on time and everything was great including the staff"

Cons: "The Guy who had an accident when boarding causing a delay. Also I didn’t like the wait fir checking as passengers with children went before business class and should be after."

Pros: "Cabin crew very pleasant"
Cons: "Lost our bags, little sympathy from staff"

Cons: "Per usual, KLM can't seem to figure out the order of boarding the plane. Should be business - priority - everyone else. Instead they do priority first, and that's usually two-thirds of the passengers. Strange choice of in-flight movies; no accounting for taste, I guess."

Pros: "The pilot kept us informed periodically during our journey. I liked that we could choose our seating online. The entertainment was good."
Cons: "The plane was dirty, all seats did not have pillows and blankets. Seating was not very comfortable, particularly as there was a box attached to one of the legs of the seat in front of me, making it necessary to move my legs to an uncomfortable angle."

Cons: "Service"

Pros: "Flight attendants tried their best given what they had to work with."
Cons: "They can not retire these old Boeing 747's soon enough. Due to mechanical problems, our flight arrived at LAXfour and a half hours late and further problems with the cargo door caused an additional one hour delay of our take off."

Pros: "For an 8 hr flight...multiple snacks, 2 meals and continuous beverage service. Blanket, pillow amd movies."
Cons: "Watched flight attendant drop tongs on floor, pick them up and put them back in the bowl of buns and continue to use them to serve bums"

Cons: "Very slow service. I wanted to by several goods from duty free. But crew served only first 20 rows of aircraft."

Pros: "It was a decent train ride."
Cons: "Stating it’s a train from the beginning and not having to go from one train station to another."

Cons: "I may be wrong but these days, the staff curtsy and overall well coming approach is lacking! Just a smile and a few cheerful words can transform passengers’ mood greatly!! This becomes particularly important when one is traveling for > 9 hours back to back flights!! One can extra charge for it!!"

Cons: "The food is usually very good, this time it was poor to disappointing- dark meat chicken.., tasteless & unhealthy....mushy fruit dessert choices"

Cons: "Kayak updated me that my flight would be late. It wasn't. Missed it had to pay $700"

Cons: "Our request for vegetarian meals got lost after a glight was cancelled."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything"

Pros: "Crew was ok and servicial"
Cons: "Food and reception at door of boarding"

Pros: "Great crews, excellent customer service"

Pros: "crew great comfortable"

Cons: "Couldn’t understand announcements"

Pros: "Crew was really good, polite, efficient. The aircraft was relatively new and clean (rare for an airline to provide a new craft on an Africa segment). Food was good, seats comfortable. Will definitely make them my airline of choice to the extent that I can cost wise."

Pros: "Yes"
Cons: "Everything very good"

Cons: "Great experience"

Cons: "WiFi"

Pros: "Crew was very nice and the food was excellent"

Cons: "The fligh Washington delay more than a hour"

Pros: "Flight was on time."
Cons: "Food could have been much better in comparison with other airlines."

Pros: "Didn’t like the sandwich offered"

Cons: "Flying back to US, passsengers get charged for their luggage. Which this is not informed to us, neither On our email nor when we were checking ( for free) in Us"

Pros: "Everything"

Pros: "Great service"

Pros: "That we were heading home. Nice seats. Good food. Lots of entertainment choices. Power plugs ( USB and European power) were appreciated. Wine as a choice with meal was appreciated and brandy after the meal."
Cons: "Some of the shows and movies were a bit 'trashy'. Long flight. I was in the middle seat next to an inattentive octanegarian who was nice but kept calling the flight crew to fix her mess up of the video system. No air controls on this plane - so it was overly warm. 10 hours of overly warm makes for a stinky passenger. Oof."

Pros: "Staff"
Cons: "We were 2h late"

Pros: ". Budget airline with no legroom or extras"
Cons: "See above. Nothing specific to like."

Pros: "The staff was very nice and friendly"
Cons: "One hour delay without any information on embarking and another hour in the plane before departure"

Pros: "It was a wonderful flight and service . Hospitality and welcoming."
Cons: "Nothing everything was amazing ."

Cons: "Crew not only lacked sensibility to understand the purpose of an emotional support dog but kept harassing me about the dog being tied to my seat. At some point a flight attendant even tried to touch my dog, invading my personal space. When the dog rightfully acted defensive trying to protect me, the crew member started threatening me that he would have the dog sent to cargo, the last thing a person with an emotional support pet wants to hear. Extreme lack of professionalism."

Cons: "Took very long from landing/ arrival until baggage could be collected. Priority luggage came out last!"

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

Pros: "Service was excellent, top of line Food ,some of the best I’ve had on a airline Seats & pillows comfy But we were in La Première! Also the equipment- a380 was terrific"
Cons: "Only 1 bathroom (toilet) for all of first class"

Cons: "Initially the flight from Lima was delayed for almost 1:30 and then we lost this connection then Airfrance rebooking to SAS they tell us to take all our luggage’s and check in again it’s was awful and really bad from then walk and spend time we suppose to be quite at home ... the worst was in SAS have ano system and for 1.5 kilos extras you might pay 33€ so after long day and wait, running everywhere with all my staff I see to eat a 11€ menu at the airport with not more explanation from Airfrance .. really bad and worst services.."

Pros: "Punctual, great food in Premium Economy, friendly crew."
Cons: "Took over 75 minutes (after arrival) for baggage to arrive on the carousel. Boarding area did not have well-defined lanes for different groups."

Pros: "None"
Cons: "The airlines didn’t even notify the passengers with the connecting flight. As the arrival was little late, all the passengers have missed their connection flights in Toronto and there was no notification or communication made on the new flight. When I went to the Air France counter in the airport, the staff has gone for the day and trying to get a hold of telephone rep took 2-3 hours and I by the time I found about my new connection, I was already late. Somehow I managed to get to the Terminal 1 and when I spoke to the lady (indian) at the Check-In counter, she has refused me to Check-In because i slipped the line up. The people in the lineup didn’t have any objection and they let me go first for Check-In as I’m already late to my flight. I wante to say something to her, but I’ve controlled my frustration. Luckily the other person in the Check-In counter offered to help me Check-In. Here is my word to the Indian lady staff “F**k You B***h” - learn some people skills."

Pros: "nothing"
Cons: "very old planes we waited 1 hour to drop our bags as their belt had an issue we had to pay extra 70 pounds to reserve a baby cot on the plane"

Pros: "Absolutely nice friendly and professional crew. Congrats! Nice food, rich and healthy Right in time despite few delay at departure"
Cons: "Just a need to improve entertainment facilities (digital screen, Wi-Fi. ..)"

Pros: "it was cancelled so they got me on the next flight on Turkish"

Pros: "Option to upgrade seat which I didn't take but might for outbound red eye flight in future."
Cons: "Faulty toilet meaning longer queues for the loo. Crew were a bit haphazard in serving food and my row was missed out for coffee after dinner."

Pros: "Good service all around, personnel pleasant"
Cons: "Very difficult to find where to register with the flight but this is more tied to the way things are run by the airport"

Cons: "Long delay during connection at CDG Unclear information about delay Repeated changes to boarding time Unable to take stroller during connection Had to go through security again at CDG, although same terminal (2E)"

Pros: "On time...comfortable, clean, newish A321...good leg room...friendly crew...pain au chocolat for breakfast"

Cons: "The delay in the flight without even informing us of the reasons. Changing the boarding gates twice, and no options in the meal."

Cons: "The crew was not very polite."

Cons: "I was forced to rebook my 3rd leg after taking trains in the middle."

Cons: "Meal choice missing kosher non-gluten combination."

Pros: "Panamá airport is a disaster, unorganized and dirty"
Cons: "Panamá airport"

Pros: "Late"
Cons: "Late"

Pros: "I didn't feel cramped in a Window Seat. Two meals were served during the flight. It was nice to get back to being fed something other than skippy snacks on an airline flight."
Cons: "I was ignored over and over again as ice cream, drinks and snacks were offer by the crew. It would have been nice if some would ask me before falling asleep if I wanted to be roused for snacks and desserts. After being on back to back flights of more than 10 hours each it would be considerate for the crew to be aware of my length of travel and to make sure they don't assume my resting my eyes is the same as me being asleep. Even when I was awake it appeared I was being overlooked, ignored and left out of complimentary services I saw other receiving....my bad for not asking to be noticed."

Pros: "Same as above, the crew was very friendly and the food was great."
Cons: "Seating was cramped and uncomfortable for a tall person."
