Pros: "Flight was nice and on time"
Cons: "No toothbrush toothpaste and eyes shades provided"

Pros: "Plane was modern and more comfortable than most"
Cons: "I do understand that it was an overnight flight but the crew came around only during meals and at no other time did they check on us. I hit the call button and nobody came - call button just went off. I was in the middle next to a sleeping passenger and could not get up."

Pros: "The crew was amazing"
Cons: "Nothing, absolutely loved it"

Pros: "It was a less old plane than in my JNB-DXB flight, but still old."
Cons: "The outdated and unresponsive entertainment interface, the lack of legroom under the seats, and the fact that the already-limited legroom for middle seats must be shared, leading to tensions between passengers."

Pros: "The crew was great and the dinner was really good!"
Cons: "Breakfast could have been better and the seat was pretty uncomfortable"

Cons: "The PA system can be deafining when it interrupted the music. Overall it is just another cattle class now."

Pros: "Timing of flight"
Cons: "Baggage policy has changed and has become too restrictive. Wieight and size and number of checked baggage is below competitors for transatlantic flights. Same for cabin luggage and is enforced randomly. Some economy passers were allowed two pieces, others were forced to check in cabiuggahe at $200."

Pros: "Flight was quicker than expected"
Cons: "Food and the attendants"

Pros: "They were very courteous and provided us with a solution with an overweight luggage so that we wouldn’t pay the extra fees. Flight was very smooth on the 777. Best flight ever."
Cons: "Nothing negative about this flight."

Pros: "Food excellent, seating room to tight"
Cons: "Service in general, bad"

Pros: "I loved the entertainment choices and the food wasn’t bad"

Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "I would like better quality in food"

Pros: "Very welcoming. Coach made comfortable. Excellent movie selection"

Pros: "pleasant staff excellent movie selection decent food"

Pros: "The cabin, the variety of beverages and the time of the trip"

Cons: "Boarding process could have been a touch more organized, but not significant"

Pros: "The price."
Cons: "Legroom entertainment show selection remote control {very poor} Food"

Pros: "Helpful staff"
Cons: "All power sockets iny row did not work so I asked the crew to plug my phone to charge in business class. My TV screen was loose and my seat was broken and kept reclining in its own. The seat next to me had a broken tray that was falling apart. Overall very disappointed with the quality of the plane with such expensive flights."

Pros: "Safety video was cool. Even in Arabic! The amenities were lovely — headphones, entertainment choices, bag with toothbrush, slippersox, etc. They elevated economy well above (the usual) steerage."
Cons: "Not having options beyond the menu; it wasn't clear where to ask for a vegetarian meal. The battle of carry-on v. coat storage is unseemly."

Cons: "Electronic entertainment is poor and the whole experience rather depressing no matter how hard the crew tries"

Pros: "Best entertainment system."
Cons: "Wifi didn't work. Seats could be more comfortable."

Cons: "I didn't like the food after I hate the fish with rice I got sick sweating cold!!terrible experience!!"

Pros: "Every thing"

Cons: "Broken seat, little leg room...A380 is a much better plane than the airbus."

Pros: "Food was great"

Cons: "Too nosiness to hear movie"

Cons: "All was great"

Pros: "Overall very good"

Cons: "This seemed far different from emirate flights that I'm used to. Over the years their service has decreased but the 1 meal and sub-par snack I got for an 8.5hr flight was poor, likened to a budget airline. This is the second flight recently I've been on that the drinks come so long after the meal you don't even get to enjoy your cola with the meal. The first food cart should have colas if there won't be another cart to come along until 30+ minutes later. I also expected Emirates to provide an eye patch, an 8 hr+ flight in the night time hours in worthy of an eyepatch. Budget airlines do not provide this, but I expected Emirates to. Lastly, I don't think it's necessary to hand out a menu indicating there is something to look forward to when the food is of quite poor standards for Emirates, standard for all other airlines. Maybe the Durban to Dubai route stocks he flights with less experienced crew, this is the impression I got; a much less refined group of people on the plane."

Pros: "Leg room, seats reclining, kids movie selection."
Cons: "Food was horrific. Kids meal was just not Edible and smelled bad. By the time cabin crew reached our section there was no food selection. Bathrooms deteriorated through the flight and were not cleaned through a 10 hr flight. Paper towels and toilet toilet paper ran out two thirds of the way into the red-eye flight and bathrooms became non useable in the morning. Crew requires more training in upkeep of airplane on long-haul flights."

Pros: "Customer service, amenities like socks, sleeping mask, free headphones and free drinks were all excellent part of the trip."
Cons: "I'm a reasonable we'll traveled man who always flies economy class (unless I get a free upgrade or a great price to upgrade at check in). This is the most uncomfortable, cramped, and smallest seat I have ever flown in...first time flying Emirates...I certainly would never fly again and actual am haunted by the idea of the return flight in 10 days. Not worth it! I'd rather deal with possibly getting dragged off a United flight!"

Pros: "The crew was incredibly welcoming and supportive. I was traveling with my daughter and they were so sweet to take pictures with her and bring her to the cockpit. The plane was state of the art and our flight was early. Now I see what everyone means when they say flying with Emirates is flying with among the best. Thanks Emirates."

Cons: "Maria was very rude and not pleasant."

Pros: "Everything was great. Flight crew was fleindly. Can't really be bored with so many free movie selections."
Cons: "Nothing to dislike to be honest. Overall experience was amazing. Emirates is a great airline."

Cons: "My bag was left in Newark and did not make it to Greece. Absolutely unacceptable"

Pros: "Excellent experience. The airline I will be looking to fly from now on."

Pros: "Cleanliness, customer service, rapidness"
Cons: "Entertainment was a little outdated"

Pros: "Staff was great, plane was comfortable."

Pros: "The crew were great! The seats are not that comfortable, it happened that I had 3 seats raw for myself but the armrests were not going up so I could not utilize them and lie down to sleep."

Pros: "This Transavia Airlines is not good at all."
Cons: "Many things cheaper does mean better."

Cons: "Very nice crew and great food"

Pros: "The crew from Kili to DarEsSalam was tired. A fresh crew worked from DarEsSalam to AMS and they were great."
Cons: "The boarding process was chaotic. The passengers in the first boarding group had to fight through the crowd because there were no boarding lanes."

Pros: "The plane size & comfort was excellent. The staff were very friendly"
Cons: "N/A"

Pros: "Services is good ."
Cons: "Food can be better"

Pros: "Great atmosphere, crew was excellent!"
Cons: "I’m 6’5”, so legroom can always be a complaint, but this wasn’t too bad. The plane appeared to be fairly old and didn’t have WiFi. Entertainment also was on an older screen which was navigated by using an old in-seat phone."

Pros: "The socks offered in business were comfortable and nice looking. The red wine was good."
Cons: "The food was just average and the seat not too comfortable"

Cons: "Half the screens were not working - crew were made aware but nothing was done. Vegetarian choices were poor to non-existent ; I witnessed crew insist to a passenger that there were no vegetarian options! They finally cobbled something together for him but not a pleasant experience"

Cons: "Flight got cancelled"

Pros: "Reclinable seats."
Cons: "The food!! The lights could be dimmed as it was a night flight."

Pros: "Fantastic gate agents!"
Cons: "The food was terrible."

Pros: "Slow service."
Cons: "Better communication!"

Pros: "Nice staff and no delay"
Cons: "Instead of crisps maybe a bit of cheese or crackers"

Pros: "General flight journey"

Pros: "the trip was excellent and comfortable. LOved the windows that shaded out rather than the having to pull down the plastic blind. entertainment on board top notch screen huge One hostess , Helen was absolutely fantastic and the best I ve had on my many trips. I will recommend KLM whenever I can"
Cons: "the headrest is hard. Apart from that- all was fine"

Pros: "Entertainment was amazing"
Cons: "Seats a bit hard"

Cons: "Delays, took my hand luggage into the hold,"

Pros: "Crew was fantastic."
Cons: "This was the most narrow airplane seat I’ve ever experienced. So uncomfortable."

Pros: "It was all fine"
Cons: "Really was unsure of why I had to purchase a ticket as I was able to pick my own on the way to Billund"

Pros: "great crew and comfortable flight."
Cons: "sceens in the plane to show map and direction of travel"

Cons: "Inflight was better than I expected. But needs upgrading air crafts."

Pros: "Smooth and faster than expected trip. I felt free to get up and walk around on this long flight. Food was good. I sat in seat with extra leg room for the first time and it was worth it"

Pros: "Good comfortable seat with extra leg room. Pleasant crew."

Pros: "Gaps between seats are very narrow."
Cons: "when serving drinks, cabin crew limited to serve liquor only once and it was poor service."

Pros: "The crew was really friendly."
Cons: "There was a Force Majeur delay in Helsinki due to wings freezing that caused 20 minute delay to Amsterdam and made the interchange stressful."

Pros: "Crew was very friendly. Nice that wine was served without charge."
Cons: "Announcements from the cockpit were hard to hear. Food has been better in past."

Pros: "The crew was fantastic! Our needs were constantly being met and just about the time you thought you might want a snack or a meal, the attendants were already heading down the aisle. Because of an allergic reaction, I asked for ice a number of times and the attendants were more than happy to meet my needs."
Cons: "The seats were very close together. The trip from New York to Amsterdam seemed a lot more comfortable than the return flight. The food from NYC JFK was better than the food from Amsterdam. The movie selection on both flights was a little disappointing."

Pros: "Nice flight, nice crew, and a nice experience."

Pros: "Overall everything was ok."
Cons: "Not that I cared at the time but having been asked for a rating on “entertainment” - there was none. Cheap and cheerful really. No extras over the likes of RyanAir."

Pros: "Flight was delayed for 15 min resulting in passengers rushing to make their connecting flights.but staff kept passengers informed."
Cons: "Flight departing late."

Pros: "I got some rest"
Cons: "unable to charge my phone or watch movies"

Pros: "Bording was good and general flight ok"
Cons: "This airplane must be the oldest in the fleet. No USB, no charging, no touchscreen technology, no plugs, no bluetooth."

Pros: "Lovely staff, good food, great movies."

Pros: "Pleasant flight"

Pros: "Only thing we liked was the fact that we were able to get onto our flight at all..."
Cons: "Was not informed that checking in online is the only way to secure a seat. So, regardless of whether you book your tickets 3 months in advance or the day before, you're not actually guaranteed a seat unless you check in online. We weren't told this until we were at the airport and checked in there that we might not be able to get our pre-booked in advance flight because of over-booking from KLM. We then had to wait and see if there were seats available when boarding. Luckily, there were, but we were not sat together. Not the greatest start to our first holiday together as a couple. We were told that if there weren't seats available, they'd pay for us to get to another airport to fly out, which would have meant a huge delay on the only time off we'd get together this year and have to rearrange our pre-booked and pre-paid living arrangements for the week. All because there wasn't a lot of emphasis on the need to check in online before hand. You'd think if someone checked in at the airport, that would be more of a guarantee that they'd be flying with you that day, but apparently not. Definitely not impressed or happy with this part of the KLM experience. This is the only company that we've had this problem with, they should make it clearer that it is essential to check in online."

Pros: "The cabin crew were good. They explained what the arrangements were for the delayed flight connections"
Cons: "The plane wasn't refueled and so was not ready for take off once the passengers were loaded. The plane had a technical problem when it tried the first take off and so it had to be abandoned. This was alarming.."

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

Pros: "The cabin crew were pretty good. That's about all that was good."
Cons: "I paid almost $400 for upgraded seats. When I got to the airport-- no seats-- both ways!! i didn't even have regular seat assignments. I had to choose from the last few seats available. The ticket agent, the gate agent and the cabin crew all did nothing to make up for the fact that their system screwed up and stuck me in a cramped coach seat in the back of the plane for 11 hours-- TWICE! Beyond that, KLM must have one of the oldest fleets in the sky. Both ways LAX->AMS->LAX, I was on a 30-35 year old 747 with no wifi, no power and a ten-year-old entertainment system. Never again."

Pros: "Arriving more or less on time"
Cons: "Crew is awful. Disrespectful desinterested in customers find themselves very important. No service mentality whatsoever. No respectful airline would hire such arrogant self centered personalities in a service role"

Cons: "Long stop over at Schiphol. Too Long!!!!"

Pros: "I was upgraded to Buisness so, no complaints"
Cons: "No Marlboro light cigarettes on the duty free shopping cart"

Pros: "Efficiency and speed of boarding was acceptable. I have no complaints about that aspect. The Comfort+ seats were worth the upgrade, pretty comfortable and reasonable legroom unless you have a big carry on stowed under the seat in front of you."
Cons: "The first announcement they made to all of us in the economy section was thay they did not have any headphones for anyone but business class. I was told when I booked the seat that the headphones would be complementary. So I did not bother to bring any assuming they were going to keep their word; I figure I'd make it work and watch a movie without sound. If that isn't bad enough midway through my nine hour flight my monitor went out and would not turn back on."

Pros: "Flight attendants were friendly, but they only had limited resources to work with."
Cons: "Worst aircraft I have been on in years. No wifi or entertainment, no power outlets, only bad wine/beer for a 3+ hour flight is mediocre at best..."

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

Pros: "Spacious cabins, friendly service"

Pros: "A nice short flight"
Cons: "We had booked business on our flight to Milan, and it was extremely disappointing that on this sector they put us on the last seat in the back of the plane. There were plent of seats on this flight that had extended legroom. A bit of a mystery, why Westjet elected to put usin the last seats on the plane?"

Pros: "Good food, good entertainment system, comfortable seating."
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. There was a disgusting stench of sewerage for the complete flight from Amsterdam to Johannesburg. This was in all likelihood due to the broken toilet on the left side."
