Cons: "I wish the 777 had slightly wider seats like the A380"

Pros: "?"
Cons: "No"

Pros: "Crew was great."
Cons: "There is for a 4 hours flight just a small snack - just like a local flight. Then there is no bedding at all, just a blanket. Very poor for a F-class ticket."

Pros: "Everything"

Pros: "Emirates always goes above and beyond to keep your experience as good as possible."
Cons: "The boarding process lacked discipline"

Pros: "Friendly cabin crew, new movies"
Cons: "Long wait after boarding before takeoff"

Pros: "Interior of plane was very comfortable and entertainment options were excellent."
Cons: "Slow to serve food and drink. We had to wait 2 hours before being offered anything."

Pros: "Comfort and friendly crew and the food was very delicious and not forgetting the entertainment was excellent."
Cons: "N/A"

Cons: "It was too cold"

Pros: "Smooth flight. Attentive crew. Good entertainment options"
Cons: "The toilet had no toilet paper so I used the paper hand towel and prayed it did not block when I flushed. The beef option was not that great. I should've chosen the chicken."

Pros: "The seats in economy at least had TVs"
Cons: "After 4+ hours sitting on the plane we never even left San Francisco. The Emirates plane was less than standard in economy class and we weren’t even offered water for the entire time we waited. The customer service was terrible and we weren’t even able to retrieve our carry on bags that we were forced to check (not due to the size). This was by far the worst first time experience I’ve had and will not be flying Emirates again."

Pros: "Great service and smooth flight!"

Pros: "The food and the ICE video center"
Cons: "The fact the crew lets people stand around in front of you in the Exit row. For what Emirates charges for this added “luxury” it’s ridiculous."

Cons: "Very good"

Pros: "Business class on Emirates is superb. Nice cozy cubicle and lots of attention. The food was remarkably good. Really enjoyed the 16.5 hour flight. Made it very enjoyable."

Cons: "They took my scarf and it was crazy cold in New York. Then they wouldn't let me use the bathroom yet it took almost an hour to land. Ridiculous. I was in 81D. I hope they found my scarf."

Pros: "Everything from food to seating was quite comfortable."
Cons: "Boarding was a bit more difficult since they did not call boarding zones"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Kayak booked the ticket through flight network and when we reached airport the airline staff was not able to find the ticket. The flight was missed in trying to find what went wrong and when called the flight network they told that due to insufficient time between booking and departure time they canceled the reservation. No message was sent for cancelation and it caused a lot of troubles and grief to all involved."

Cons: "The seat was not going back. Food and tea didn't come on time."

Pros: "Emirates are very good"
Cons: "Fly Dubai is not good and poor service"

Pros: "Leg Room"

Pros: "Great entertainment set up, a free hour of wifi and good food. The wifi was priced fairly. Overall, it was a pleasant flight that I even managed to go to sleep. I normally can't sleep on planes."

Cons: "Less attention to my two kids"

Pros: "Crew very kind"
Cons: "food not very good"

Pros: "Over all all was great"

Pros: "The food was good, the entertainment was good"
Cons: "There needed to be more snack options.. a mid-flight sandwich or cheese and crackers. There were only two drink carts that went by on a an 11 hour flight and these were with the 2 meals that were served. Alcoholic drinks were difficult to order except with dinner. Overall, there are more amneties, foods and drink on Delta airlines."

Cons: "My screen was not very responsive to touch. Was challenging to navigate. I couldn't clearly hear the PA announcements"

Pros: "The plane. The thoughtfulness of the crew. My seat's location. I was lucky to be in the front center! The flight information display. Flying at night across the Tasman Sea it was as though we were stationary (apart from a little vibration as we crossed the Southern Alps). Besides, the Air Bus is so quiet (comparatively). Oh yes. One other thing: the fare."
Cons: "We are vegetarians (not vegan). I wasn't keen on the chicken/fish option. But I didn't complain."

Pros: "Crew was very nice and responsive to my needs."
Cons: "Entertainment system was par as other airlines but earphone jack was arcane and did not allow use of my own headset which is superior to the poor quality supplied equipment. Also the interactive touchscreen was not interacting well and at some point the screen froze leaving me without the ability to continue my movie."

Pros: "Entertainment was good"
Cons: "The seats were terrible and not enough cushioning"

Pros: "The food and entertainment were good and the seats were relatively comfortable. And they provide headphones but..."
Cons: "The crew didn't warn us that they would be collecting the Emirates provided headphones during their final "prepare for landing" check of the cabin... so I was near the end of a movie and sans headphones! WTF? And because the fasten seat belt sign was on in preparation for landing, I couldn't fish through my carry on in the overhead compartment to find the ones I'd brought. Thats SUPER sh*tty to your customers. Just not ok!"

Cons: "As above"

Pros: "I used the prime lounge in Istanbul and when it was time to go, I was able to practically walk on the plane without any wait. The seats were comfy and didn't have a ton of legroom but it wasn't bad. The staff we're friendly and helpful. The in-flight entertainment had a pretty impressive selection and had one of the best-designed interfaces I've seen so far (and I've ridden a variety of airlines). Last and most important, the food was hands down the BEST I've had on a plane. Turkish is killing it, they're my new go-to airline!"
Cons: "I really can't complain about anything, even if I try! Maybe the touch screen sensitivity on the entertainment console seemed a little off, but that's just nitpicking"

Pros: "There was a delay in take off over 54 minutes. We had only 30 minutes to catch the connection flight at Istanbul airport and no one guide us in the airport to which gate we have to go. It was very hard for my wife to run with me all the way to the next gate (she is diabetic)."

Pros: "Food, movies"

Cons: "Leg space a nighrmare!! Was uncomfortable for all the 13 hrs of the flight. Terrible experience"

Pros: "It was a 12 or 13 hour flight and except for sitting too much we were never uncomfortable. The service level made me think we were back in the 80's. Hot towels, attentive service, tons of food and free drinks. There was actually one meal that we would have eaten even if it wasn't on a plane. They gave out full size blankets and pretty fluffy pillows. (I bring our own anymore, because you never know if you will get one on most airlines, and if you do they're usually useless). Their entertainment system was amazing. We caught up on all the recently released movies that we've wanted to see for FREE! If only Netflix had this quality of movie offerings. They had fresh flowers in the huge bathrooms. It's that type of attention to detail you just really don't see anymore."

Cons: "Delay"

Cons: "At Amsterdam we were told that our checkin luggage wouldn't be at Sydney!! Some low fat meals were terrible!"

Whether it's her personal opinion or KLM's policy, it's unreasonable to think that a 3 years old child could or should hold her pipi over 20 minutes, while they slowly and inefficiently trying to give out food. Several parents were there with the request to let us through to the toilet with small children and she smiled in our face and said "no, we will finish first and than you can go". She might be not fit for the job anymore, but KLM can't afford this kind of treatment."

Cons: "Only one toilet working in business class. A crew member told me that it was a decision to fly with only one toilet to ensure no delay.

Cons: "Lost my luggage for 7 days"

"Poor communication from boarding staff, airport staff not a clue. Communication on board was un decipherable and airline lost baggage."

Cons: "Air France’s apathy towards its customers is shocking. Traveling with three children , our flight was delayed by 3hrs resulting us arriving in Paris after 1AM. With the airport shuttle(CDVAL) to our airport hotel closed, they offered no assistance despite of my request. Simply asked us to take a taxi (when all taxi stands are abandoned at 2AM). Beware if traveling with family."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "They have a terrible communication problem, they never communicated why the flight was late, they never communicated what they were doing or what was happening. Bad customer service. Bad communication with the client. They told us when I asked several times that we would not lose our connection and that everything was fine and that was not the case. We lost the connection. No one told us anything. Another problem was that the girl in the boarding process removed the suitcases tickets from the boarding pass and did not want to return them, and held it without any cause. Without that tickets we can not claim the bags. The flight staff went looking for us. Pretty sad and disappointed by their service. I understand that they were causes outside the airline but must communicate to the client. They cannot remain silent and say nothing."

Then they came out to answer the phone and said we were 10 minutes past the cut off and we could not fly."
Cons: "Staff just walked away while we were in line, the rudeness and mean attitude, they blamed us for being too late after ignoring us and made us late, they didn't offer an alternative flight until we asked. Overall, horrible customer service. Never been treated so rudely by people in the airlines industry in my entire 42 years of flying!"

Pros: "I liked the crew, they were professional and tried their best"
Cons: "The flight was a chartered flight . Air France informed us that due to cabin crew shortage they couldn't operate an air france flight and hence they hired Air Belgium. Whilst the crew were nice , the actual plane was old and creaky. It wasn't up to the standards expected of Air France. They could have done better in getting a plane up to standard. A lot of the passengers were disappointed ."

Cons: "My only problem was that there wasn't any air flow and until someone told them how hot they think it is, it was a very sweaty situation. I couldn't sleep because of how hot it was and I didn't think to tell the crew because I didn't know they would care."

Cons: "Not much in terms of entertainment"

Pros: "everything"
Cons: "price and reliability"

Cons: "Missing one suitcase and it will be delivered a day late supposedly"

Cons: "Separating me from my party to extort a fee to sit next to each other"

Pros: "Virtually nothing, even in Club Europe."
Cons: "Crowded cabin, uncomfortable seat pitch, anarchic boarding (even for Club), lousy food and that ghastly safety video."

Cons: "About all"

Cons: "Having to pay for tea, coffee and water is outrageous Flight late."

Pros: "Polite and funny crew"
Cons: "Snacks and drinks for money"

Pros: "Comfortable on plane. Pleasant crew"

Pros: "again the cabin crew were excellent and professional"

Pros: "Flight was delayed however the crew got us back as fast as they could and we where very happy with the service"

Pros: "Boarding was quick and smooth."
Cons: "No complimentary drinks. And a stewardess had no idea which countries’ passengers needed to fill out a travel card for UK. I wasted all that time only to find out I did not have to."

Pros: "Easy to board promptly"
Cons: "N/A"

Cons: "As requested checked my bag in and it took an absolute age to get my bag in Edinburgh. I ordered a toastie it was lukewarm"

Pros: "Staff on ground and on plane was super friendly. Thanks for the pleasant flight!"
Cons: "It would be great if at least cold beverages were included in the ticket price - would make the flight experience more welcoming."

Pros: "Comfortable seats ,nice crew"
Cons: "Entertainment"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything... including from London to Venice I need check my small luggage and they broke all . The small and the big one how I can be reimbursed for the damages? I need throw in the garbage both luggage’s now..I am really mad about it."

Cons: "Landed in London late missed the connection flight. BA only had 1 flt a day going to Santorini....Next days flt completely booked...Had to fly from Lon to Madrid to Athens then to Santorini.....Took 38 hrs traveling time to get to our destination...Not a happy camper!!!!!"

Pros: " Cons: "I was disappointed in the food. On my second flight that day my ticket said I would get a meal but I didn´t."

Cons: "I would think that for over $1,000 I should not have had to pay for food or drink!!!!!"

Cons: "NO beverages, not even water, except for purchase"

Cons: "Didn’t not make it the flight because the Wheelchair took forever to pick us up from there a aircraft"

Pros: "The crew was very sweet. The flight was super short so it was comfortable enough for the short flight."
Cons: "The flight was delayed by an hour and a half. I had a 40 min delay with Alaska airlines 2 weeks ago and the min I arrived at my destination I had a text apologising for the delay. Along with a link to $100 credit with the airline. This is what real customer service is about. Not just empty apologies."

Pros: "Good to have movies to pass time on lng flight."
Cons: "2 days prior to returnflight I called stating the at was not enough time to catch a flight transfer having to go thru tsa again . B A assurred me I was o.k. ..It was not. A person should not have to physically run and have stress of wait to get thru TSA then run again back,get on train to next plane.Other passengers then said "ou are why we are starting late". It was a transfer off a plane from Ireland not a traffic issue. BA SHOULD HAVE PUT ME ON A LATER FLIGHT. TO SEATTLE."

Cons: "I loved everything except the in flight entertainment which was very limited and boring. Please upgrade it to the high standard and good quality of everything else. I spent the whole flight reading!"

Pros: "Crew very accommodating and friendly. Also the ground crew were very friendly."
Cons: "Seat spacing much too cramped."

Pros: "The food was decent especially considering that most don't even offer meals anymore. The movie selection was excellent"
Cons: "It was probably one of the fullest flights I've ever been on and the seats were so small and jammed together by 2/3 through the flight I was actually in pain. I don't remember things being so tight on my last international flight."

Pros: "It was a short flight but the plane and staff were amazing."

Cons: "Rude staff, messy service, lack of information and communication"

Cons: "British Airways lost my bag TO Europe, I was without it for 2 days, AND they lost it on my way BACK. I will never fly this airline ever again. Who loses a person's bag TWICE?? ON THE SAME TRIP?? Beyond that they treated me with such discontent, it was like they didn't even care."

Cons: "None of them reminded me of the fact that I need a transit visa for the UK (I mean, isn't it rediculous? I am just staying there for 5 hours). When I called in for cancellation at the airline, they told me to talk to my agent company Cheaptickets. Cheaptickets simply told me that I can't get any money back, and was extremely arrogant and impatient. Later (for a week I was trying to save this ticket by talking to the British Embassy to see if I can get the visa done and they are just "we can't help you") they told me that I can get a refund of like 30 SGD and they promised to send me an e-mail about it. They never ever did. I also tried to change the dates and the handling fee + fair difference was like 1200 SGD (are you joking?) they simply told me, prices fluctuate... Finally I went to the check in counter desperate. The staff even refused to talk to me about my situation because simply, "there is no BA ticket office in Singapore" and told me to call them. I said the office is closed, but they are like, yeah just call them. They swept me off like a moron. Extremely arrogant, impatient, insensitive. I paid 900 SGD for nothing and a whole week of anxiety and regret. I will never take this and I will never use Cheaptickets or Kayak anymore. So bad."

Pros: "Most of staff was very attentive. The flight left on schedule. The bathroom was clean even towards the end of the long flight we still had soap and tissues."

Cons: "Absolutely no complimentary food and beverage on the international flight"

Pros: "Flight attendants are so very tentative and the pilot made numerous announcements. Great planes excellent service"
Cons: "--"

Pros: "Travelled in business class so priority boarding was good Well planned boarding by different seat sections Crew attentive when needed but not intrusive"
Cons: "Food selection not great Video screen brightness not working on my screen and so very difficult to watch movies"

Cons: "Entertainment on the flight and also seats condition"

Pros: "I liked the on-board entertainment, food and enough legroom."
Cons: "No negatives."

Cons: "Delayed 2 hours and no screen on the plane - a long way to catch up with Singapore airlines"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "The flight was cancelled. Very poor organisation. Lack of communication. Our rights were not explained to us and no information material was made available. No reason was given for the cancellation. The flight was rescheduled to the morning at 7am and then again rescheduled at noon. Still to be seen..."
