Cons: "Worst customer service"

Pros: "the crew, the comfort, the entertainment."

Cons: "Nothing to report."

Pros: "Again, the flight attendants were so sweet and nice and hospitable."

Pros: "Staff was friendly and I was comfortable"
Cons: "Toilet was a bit messy. Menu can be improved"

Cons: "Great experience"

Cons: "Overall experience turns exceptional great when crew is friendly, understandable & helpful. My overall experience on this flight from CAI-DXB on Emirates was great because of the wonderful crew, on top was their Supervisor/ Adel A.Hamid El-Hareth. On the contrary my decision after an experience with Emirates on board from DXB-LAX, was never to repeat it due to Crew Supervisor, she was British, she was there on board I guess to teach everybody disciplines with a tone !! Someone exceptional to meet once in life but it may bring you to a decision along with other factors not to fly again with Emirates to LAX. Thanks for your professional follow up Regards, Dr. Karim Ali"

Pros: "Emirates staff are very professional"
Cons: "To remove menu on paper. Rather Emirates should display the menu on the screen like other airlines who care about the environment"

Cons: "The entertainment system did not work properly"

Pros: "I liked the way of grouping the boarding , and the "ICE" facility had a great options, crew was so helpful."

Pros: "Lamb and chicken were good but kids didn't like the kids meals.."
Cons: "2 of the female crew members had attitude problems when asked simple questions by passengers. One was an Urdu speaking flight attendant and the other was a blonde woman. Regret I didn't get their names. Please work with them on being nicer with passengers."

Cons: "Me"

Pros: "all is good"
Cons: "n/a"

Pros: "Crew were great, entertainment was great, all in all a really comfortable flight despite not getting an aisle seat which would have made it even better"
Cons: "I discovered when I hit Dubai that despite having an eight an a half hour layover that I didn't qualify for the free hotel I thought I did qualify for as someone with an eight hour plus flight so that was a little disappointing have had it before so assumed it was on all flights but that ended up being a negative surprise..."

Pros: "Boarding and Crew are excellent toilets are clean Gluten Free meals are available, that's a big plus"
Cons: "Lots of movies to choose from however I felt the choices were similar in a way! ( Example: you'll find the Drama movies are almost the same as the Romantic movies or the Comedy movies)"

Cons: "gate was poorly labeled. Screens and boarding card said "E11" but there were 3 gates "E11A" "E11B" and "E11C" and most passengers wasted time trying to find the right one (including "E11C" which was the first gate # passengers saw, and required going up stairs to a different floor to determine it was the wrong gate). Terrible signage, awful experience. Someone should be fired."

Cons: "Almost all the flights I take out of Cairo leave late, not sure if this an airport issue or what but it is very stressful to have boarding go so slowly and to have the plane take off over an hour late. This has now become "the norm". Please make better efforts to leave ON TIME!"

Cons: "Cairo airport: Personnel have no manners. Rude, disdainful security staff who bark at passenges as if everyone is a criminal. Must be related to the Egyptian mindset. Dubai airport: Endless taxiing from aircraft to terminals, endless shuttle rides between terminals. You feel like a rat scuttling through underground tunnels and dismal byways through a wateland of darkness to be spat out at ugly, uninviting entrances somewhere in the bowels of Dubai International. No signs, no knowledgeable personnel to explain anything to you. No attempt at making travelers feel comfortable, no attempt at making the surroundings look pleasant. Must be the culture. The flight itself has wonderful staff, but the airport makes me not want to fly Emirates again!"

Cons: "The seats on the 777-300ER were tiny compared to the seats on the A380 from JFK to dubai. My wife and I are both small people and we were cramped. This is very unfair to us and even so to larger people on such a long leg The entertainment screens were also very poor. Small, low res"

Pros: "the food is excellent"

Pros: "great flight service with accommodating staff. in flight entertainment had awesome variety"

Pros: "The seats with enough legs room"
Cons: "It was so difficult to find the restrooms. There were few of them in a big airport that made a long line and difficult for kids"

Pros: "Very responsive and friendly crew"
Cons: "Would like to see more vegetarian options"

Cons: "The flight got cancelled, and it was impossible to reach your customer service. It was the first time to use and last time."

Cons: "I thought I had paid for window seats."

Pros: "Excellent trip"

Pros: "Decent leg room in economy; good entertainment system & food/drink"
Cons: "I was expecting to pay for only 10 kg excess baggage according to my own scale but was charged for 15 kg and the check-in staff was rude and unwilling to listen; in-flight staff were not polite, pushing past passengers without any word; such a disappointment as I expected much higher standard of service and courtesy. Nothing beats Singapore Airlines."

Cons: "Over charged for bags paid $326.00 for one extra bag I call Airline in Dubai they said you have been over charged"

Pros: "Lovely flight crew and great film selection"
Cons: "Would have liked more healthy food options d"

Cons: "The screen not working I feel very bored"

Pros: "Javier the flight attendant was so welcoming and attentive. Flight got l fit late, but arrived on time. Service was efficient and respectful. Was not as crowded as prior flight and was able to eat the meal"
Cons: "Time of flight really sucked. 4:00 AM departure meant arriving at 1.00 AM. Tough way to start a day"

Pros: "Emirates flight was fine. Problem was booking a South African Airways codebase flight on Kayak. Neither SAA or Emerates were able to look up our booking reference and so we did not get seat assignments until the airport."
Cons: "Codebase flights and no one looking as us as customers."

Pros: "I flew from Orlando DL to Dubai ,and from Dubai to cape town and both flight I was selected to seat on the middle seat,f that happens on my return flights to Orlando fl ,I will never fly emirates again"

Pros: "Flight appeared less than half-full, I had a full 4 seats to stretch out. Yes, this was just lucky, but very much appreciated."
Cons: "Dull food."

Cons: "crew"

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Great crew, seats, entertainment options. A 28hr trip felt like 5 because it was so comfortable."

Pros: "It was much better than first leg from Ft Lauderdale to Dubai, better plane, better service, better food, better entertainment"

Pros: "Food and crew were great"

Pros: "I enjoyed the wide selection of movies and tv series. I think the food is the best out of all the airlines and I enjoy flying with Emirates."
Cons: "When I boarded my flight, a man and his family took my seat and forced me to sit in the middle of two very large men and made my 7 hour flight very uncomfortable. I purposely chose that seat for leg room and even though business class was empty, they could not provide me with a different seat."

Pros: "Loved the entertainment options."
Cons: "Food was horrible and cabin crew was not nice or friendly."

Cons: "I had a 14 hours layover in Dubai. I had called Emirates before booking this flight and they said they would issue a hotel and meals vouchers. Due to a mistake by an Emirates agents who was processing the visa application in Dubai, it was denied and an immigration head officer came and appologized to me and spoke to her. Emirates did not compensate me at all. They could have granted Emirates lounge access, meals, or simply book me a room at the airport hotel. I ended up sleeping for 14 hours on a chair due to their employee's fault"

Pros: "The flight crew we're fine and helpful if you needed something."
Cons: "The TV for my seat would cut out when the person in front of me reclined. The charging plug also didn't work."

Pros: "I like the flight route"
Cons: "This is my fourth time booking Emirates for my route through kayak. The route is longer but I choose it for on-board Internet for work emails. Generally, they have on-board WiFi Internet, however for my return route of 21 hours both flights had no wifi which was disappointing. This is unprofessional because if you are planning on having WiFi to respond to work emails and it is not available once you are already in the air there is nothing you could do but get stuck. Never does this happen with Lufthansa, Turkish, Etihad. Disappointing."

Pros: "Nothing at all"
Cons: "Flighet delay"

Cons: "All seats are occupied airplane is completely full making it difficult for crew to serve passengers and time consuming to do regular activities."

Cons: "Flight was really hot ; i was almost suffocating. They kept the AC closed for an hour till the take off !! Wayer surved was hot ! Disappointing experience unfortunatly!!"

Pros: "nothing"
Cons: "we were delayed by 3 hours and missed our next flight to seattle, emirates did nothing to help us catch our next flight, even though it sat on the tarmac for 30 minutes while we were denied entry to the gate."

Pros: "Being able to sleep comfortably Great staff Food good rather than great but not easy on flight. Well chosen good wines. Chauffeur service to & from airport Ease of checkin"

Pros: "Entertainment facilities very good. Important for those long trips. Food good too"

Cons: "Screen was black and white most of flight"

Pros: "Available movies are great! Food is really good, but if your seat is in the end of the plaine, your choises of food will be smaller (meat plates ends before you get the opportunity to ask for it)."
Cons: "Emirates is located in a crowded terminal in Cairo and from the airport entrance to the gate can take you more than one hour. Also, some people in this airport don't respect the queue, so you have to pay attention on your place in the line and sometimes, 'fight' for it. My flight had lots of kids, and even asking the parents to control their kids, it didn't happened. During part of my flight I had a child kicking the back of my seat!"

Pros: "The flight was empty and the luxury to choose your open row of seats"

Pros: "The Captain spoke to us a few times and the crew were absolutely amazing. Best flight Ive ever been on."

Pros: "We were pleasantly surprised when my whole family received a business class upgrade The services on board was excellent."
Cons: "Check in at he Jeddah Hajj terminal is chaotic"

Cons: "Our stewardess was not the friendliest!"

Pros: "it was ok."
Cons: "Crew allowed passengers in with no masks. Why do they write a boarding time on a pass? They started 15 min later. Then, "be fast, be fast, we are behind". Plane departed 20 min late."

Pros: "Crew were great"
Cons: "Cabin kept very hot, very difficult to sleep. Seats were so-so comfortable"

Pros: "Everything was amazing, except for 2 pieces of luggage that got lost, misplaced, from Zurich to Chicago"
Cons: "2 luggage missing, I was told by Swiss airlines I would get them the next day, because they were left behind in Zurich."

Cons: "Great customer service"

Cons: "Actually making the flight"

Pros: "The food"
Cons: "If there was Headphones on flights"

Cons: "Nothing. The best airline I've flown across the board."

Pros: "The movie"
Cons: "More space! The crew could have been nicer"

Pros: "The crew"
Cons: "Boarding by rows and not like cows all at one time"

Pros: "check in & boarding were ok"
Cons: "very uncomfortable chairs worset food crew were very unfriendly the plan was full with the smell of vomiting"

Pros: "The food and service."

Cons: "I did not have food selection option during my booking the ticket. Would you mind to add food selection options during booking the ticket?"

Pros: "Flight was delayed which caused us to change our flight from United to Lufthansa. Like Lufthansa much better."
Cons: "Flight was delayed. Had to get a different flight because we would miss the next flight."

Cons: "Boarding was not clear! We were waiting for an announcement and none came. We got up when we saw the seating area clearing out. Earlt day International departures are sheer madness. The Check-in and security lines were crazy. Will take later flight next time."

Pros: "Customer service excellent even though I was in the economic class they made me feel first class!"

Cons: "Great"

Pros: "The service was friendly and efficient. My seat was comfortable."
Cons: "The entertainment system wasn't working properly. It was restarted for me twice, but still didn't work."

Pros: "Nice breakfast treat and chocolate is always appreciated"
Cons: "Not a specific complaint about this flight but boarding in general is not smooth No online check-in that I could find."

Pros: "Food"

Pros: "The flight itself was very enjoyable. The only negative aspect was that the first leg of the flight was delayed long enough that I almost missed my connecting flight and my baggage was lost."
Cons: "The real reason for the negative review is a combination of the cost of this flight, loss of my baggage and poor service after the flight. I paid nearly $4,500 for an economy ticket from New York to New Delhi. The first leg of the flight, from New York to Zurich was delayed long enough that I made my connecting flight to Delhi within seconds of them closing the gate and as a result my baggage was lost. Once I got to Delhi I had to take a connecting flight to Goa and then drive an hour to my destination, where I was attending a good friend's wedding. All of my baggage was lost during transit by the airline, and unfortunately they never delivered by baggage to my hotel...so I was without formal clothes and normal clothes for the wedding for 4 days. The customer service line was no help, and the airline refused to deliver the baggage to me...the closest they would bring it was the Goa airport which was an hour and a half away."

Pros: "On board service"
Cons: "the teminal 4 sevice at JFK: the huge line before the security looked like a complete misorder and for no reason lingest lined I ever saw in airports instead of spliting the crowd in shorted lines to every security crew without maku=ing people to pass long lines with the hand luggage and children, it was really and absolutelu=y far from any comfort."

Pros: "Four economy short-hauls in two days: That extra tad legroom (A321, A320, CS100) Planes are very clean Good quality snacks Great staff"

Pros: "Nice staff and inflight service. seats were great"

Pros: "Excellent, super-friendly crew, excellent meal"

Pros: "Nothing special"
Cons: "The business class seats were just like the economy class, not wider or extra space, only an empty seat in between, not worth the money. The first flight from Cairo to Zürich, no meal or snack was offered. Very disappointed in Swiss business class"

Pros: "The next best thing to the hard-working and kind crew was the lighting design. Meals were OK, and I was delighted that the vegan meals I ordered for my travel companion were right there as ordered. Not a common occurrence of late, I’m afraid, so I congratulate Swiss one getting this one right."
Cons: "Legroom is non-existent. This was by far the most uncomfortable aircraft I have ever flown on, with the possible exception of an Ilyushin 62 operated by Tarom in 1983. I felt bad for the man in front of me, with my knees in his back. That is, until he reclined his seat and put my video screen in my face. Not much to watch anyway, but it was impossible to lean forward at all. Boarding at JFK was rather chaotic."

Pros: "-"
Cons: "- late in arrival - 2h late in departure - lost my luggage"

Pros: "Was a very quick flight."

Pros: "Fast journey despite a short delay it arrived on time."
Cons: "Felt a bit hectic on the plane, possibly due to other passengers being slow to board."

Cons: "I could not obtain a refund."

Pros: "The way of treatment"
Cons: "The landing was terrible"

Pros: "Flight was fine. The attendants on board were friendly and efficient. The food was nice though there wasn't much variety in drinks."
Cons: "It was awful getting boarding passes and paying for check in luggage in Venice. I assumed we couldn't check in early online much like the earlier Lufthansa flight. Then when we got to the airport there were long lines to check in and no machines to self check in. When we finally got to the front of the line the woman said we had to pay for our checked baggage elsewhere and then come back for the boarding passes. Unheard of elsewhere. The people in the office where you pay for checked baggage took their time and chatted and had no sense of urgency. The first woman we spoke to apparently filled out the form incorrectly. We had to rush to get to the plane and we barely made it through long security lines. We almost missed the plane due to the lack of early information and check in, the cumbersome payment process, etc. It was the worst check in process ever."

Pros: "Loved my experience with Swiss airlines. Comfortable and pleasant flight."

Cons: "The line at the check in was quite long. Luckily I had only carryon"

Pros: "Food"
Cons: "Lack of screen for watching movies."

Pros: "The flight had a delay but managed to (partially) make up for it."
Cons: "Boarding was a little slow. Perhaps it would be nice to more explicitly explain to people how to more quickly stow their luggage and then sit down in order to let other people through. The seats felt a little more cramped than usual."

Cons: "Too narrow seats."

Pros: "Entertainment was excellent and they made it a very comfortable flight."

Cons: "I would have like an announcement to let me know what times food will be served. I woke up just as the crew had passed my row for breakfast and then couldn't get the attention of the lady to serve me breakfast. A vegan option for the menu would be excellent. The leg room on the plane was also very reduced for an 11 hour flight. I wish I would have been offered to pay an additional amount and upgrade to the business class. This option was never offered to me at check-in."

Pros: "The quiches are so yummy, and very compact and easy."

Pros: "crew very friendly.food excellent- thai curry vegetables, snacks. the flight arrived ahead of schedule despite slight delay. I appreciated that this was Swiss operated so no charge for skis, boots and poles."
Cons: "Not sure why loading is not by aisles, seems not that efficient"

Pros: "Excellent pilot, very smooth fly and landing, good comunication, friendly , good food, nice crew,"
Cons: "A little more water, and too little nag wait in Zurich for connecting flight"

Pros: "Even though the flight was delayed, everything else about it was great! Newer, more comfortable seating than the plane from the US to Europe, excellent food and service, no complaints about the in-air experience."
Cons: "The flight was delayed most likely because of inefficiencies in the passport check / boarding process, some people got confused, waited in the boarding line, then had to go back in queue in the passport check line. Last person walked into the plane 10 min after the scheduled departure time, as a result the airport delayed our departure by 50 more minutes."

Pros: "Professional and polite crew and comfy seats."
Cons: "Boarding was a mess, late as usual and with no organization of any sort. Terminal E in Zurich has no air conditioning, so you wait in heat and no air. Also who came up with the design to put toilets upstairs where you ave to go using small and crowded hallways."

Pros: "I am a big guy but the interior of this plane is laid out for more room than commuter flights are in the States. The window seats sit further off the wall so there is room for my shoulders to not be forced into the wall."

Pros: "Gate changes and delays boarding made getting food between flights an impossibility. On board food was appreciated but was a snack and in 12+ hours travelling this made it tough."

Pros: "Crew was very kind and accommodating."
Cons: "I was unable to choose my seat online due to Swiss system issues and when I called, customer service was completely unhelpful despite the 25 minutes I had to wait for someone to answer."

Pros: "Good service... Quick boarding"
Cons: "Older plane, seats too narrow and short for 11hr flight. Bathrooms are TINY even by airline standards. Entertainment system has lots of choices but screens are low quality."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Didn't have good selection of drink. Very tight seats never came by to pick up or ask if needed anything. Only saw them went serving dinner. I will never fly swiss air again."

Cons: "Thanx ;)"

Pros: "It was clean. The aircraft was new, well maintained."
Cons: "The aircraft departed and landed late. I then missed my next connection. The majority of the people working seemed to care but there was no general way to make the late arrival and missed boarding overcome with a plan. It seems it was more my fault than the airlines."

Pros: "The movies"
Cons: "Lack of crying babies and lack of sleep seats too close lack of comfort"

Pros: "Crew was amazing!"

Pros: "Crew was very good and seat in long trip was comfortable"
Cons: "Boarding in first leg needs more organization"

Pros: "Everything...the food was delicious, the staff was gracious and always went the extra mile."

Pros: "The seat is comfortable"

Pros: "Leg room was OK"
Cons: "No alcohol service, cabin lights not dimmed seeing it was a late night flight."

Pros: "Crew was nice and attentive to needs. I arrived safely at my destination so that’s all that matters."
Cons: "My first flight was delayed at CAI and no one informed us of this. I almost missed my connecting flight."

Cons: "The Turkish airline is always late at take off Security check on the airport was horrible Not friendly people who work there And definitely no any kind of help Which make me for the second time miss my connection flight And definitely loose more money"

Pros: "Nothing positive bad service"
Cons: "Bad service, flight delay, bad customer services"

Pros: "Sleeping accommodations, storage, crew attentiveness in business class was outstanding. 5he business lounge in Istanbul was the best ever. Great airline."

Cons: "They lost my baggage and everything I had was in that bag!"

Pros: "Food and service"

Cons: "No assistance from any agent on getting to our gate for our connecting flight. This would have ensured we would have boarded our flight on time. We had to stay the night in Istanbul"

Pros: "Hot,moist washcloths & overnight travel kits (slippers, toothbrush & paste, sleep mask, ear plugs) , good food, flowers in bathroom - first class touches in economy !"

Pros: "Service is good, and food as well."

Pros: "Food"
Cons: "After bus arrived at steps kept on it 20 mins. 2 more buses arrived in this time. Still wait. Then let out all at once. Massive queues to board. Poeple not dressed for this. Poor babies crying Maybe 15 mins waiting in 2am cold on tarmac."

Cons: "This flight didn’t take take off on time. It was delayed A whole hour which made me miss my connection flight To Houston."

Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Everything"

Pros: "Our flight from CAIRO was delayed for 3 and half hours. We missed our flight to Chicago. The Staff at Istanbul airport were very very unhelpful and rude. They did not try at all to find an alternative route for us. The lack of empathy and understanding was astounding. NEVER TURKISH AIRLINES AGAIN!"

Pros: "Food was fine"
Cons: "delay time and Istanbul airport"

Pros: "Do you like crying babies and kids running around the aircraft? If yes, then you would have loved this flight."
Cons: "Everything. This was the worst star alliance flight i have taken. No control over the passengers, and kids. Screaming children the entire flight. I was not able to sleep at all. They did not dim the lights until extremely late in the flight. Business class lights were dimmed several hours before economy. The staff at gate check-in was not helpful. My seating assignment was separated from my wife. I was told they could not move me. I was originally set to be seated next to a young mother and baby. I switched with her husband and another passenger to be seated next to my wife. Why do I need to arrange a seating assignment that should have been obvious? Plus they did not credit me with my mileage. Thanks, never again."

Cons: "The 2 flights were delayed, I went to my work late Both bags were broken"

Cons: "Cabin crew in business class were not especially friendly and was really lazy during the welcome drink service. They did not even ask each passenger and greeted them to see if they want anything. Instead, they just held the tray of welcome drink and walked around the cabin once, then poured all the unconsumed welcome drinks into the bathroom. Service after take off was abysmal as well. No smile, no addressing passenger by name, all the service was done in a rush and a totally weird manner. The food is not very much to my liking since it heavily consisted of cheese, and there is literally no choice for you to get away with that. Having a traditional Turkish menu is great at one hand, but in this case it was a huge no-no."

Cons: "The gate from Boston to Cairo in Istanbul is too far away. My plane left Boston one hour late so I had only about 50 mn to run from gate 200 to gate 712. Also in Boston the called all the family with children from business AND from economy to board first the we the Business we started to boarded after which was one hour after boarding time. That was REDICULOUS. Turkish Airline team was so slow and unprofessional unlike the team in Istanbul. But on the plane the service and food was excellent. Mervat Ali"

Pros: "Service. Very professional staff. Great food and drinks."
Cons: "There was a delay with boarding. Then there was a delay with leaving off, maybe an hr late and then we arrived there was a delay getting off. I did not get off the plane until 630 even though plane arrived at 549 exactly."

Cons: "Food was dried out and tasteless"

Pros: "As above"
Cons: "As above"

Cons: "Flight was canceled. The disorganization and misinformation was unprecedented. I have been traveling for 30 years and tried almost all airlines, but the Turkish Airline office at Cairo Airport ranked the poorest I have ever seen. The disorganization was as if they do not know what to do. First they said the plane arrived late, then they said there was a bird hitting the engine. The excuses were so laughable beyond belief."

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: "Food and good movies selection"
Cons: "Flight attendant actitud"

Pros: "Flight attendance service is great"
Cons: "Boarding process too complicated with several security check points make the travel more difficult"

Pros: "Always courteous service."
Cons: "The flight was delayed and we had to run for our connection."

Pros: "Comfortable and nice people"

Pros: "easy check in"
Cons: "lack of leg room"

Pros: "Entertainment selection Food and beverage service"

Pros: "The food used to be way better than now"

Pros: "Istanbul airport was very crowded and bathroom were not clean"

Pros: "Seats and entertainment, seat comfort"

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: "Can't think of a thing that could actually be changed."

Pros: "The speed in which the aircraft was boarded and the refreshments given quickly"
Cons: "The lack of order and last minute information not being given"

Pros: "Service when it was done"
Cons: "Infrequent service Crowded Entertainment system bad"

Cons: "First we did not Flight from Cairo to Istanbul because the trouble happened in Turkey I blame to KAYAK because they didn't followed up the situation and did not gave us any information also till now did not know if we flight or no that not good we tried to call the agent many time and they told us all thing is ok no change but when we review with Turkish airline the change the day and reserved in another AIRLINE Company Second : we had a one luggage was damaged from USA to CAIRO we did a report # CAI TK 56650 IN CAIRO AIRPORT but nothing happened and no one call us until now ,Please check and let us know what we can do Ehab Sargyous 409-719-2196"

Pros: "The boarding and food."

Pros: "Better headphones for economy Pillows on seat when boarding"
Cons: "heating controls /cooling tem not very good,"

Pros: "The boarding was quickly. The crew very kindly"
Cons: "The seat are small. The food has a lot of salt and bread."

Pros: "no problems"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Yes, Very good"

Cons: "The airline lost my suitcase and deliver it only 72 hours later... They refused to give me proper compensation for items that were broken..."

Pros: "Crew is excellent, polite and personal!"
Cons: "Plane is super old and outdated. Comfort seat is not, comfortable, very tight. TV screen is not good quality, with the old controls on a handset. No touch, no 1/8 inch audio jack (it has the old 3 holes one). Wifi for streaming freezes every other second. Just make a face lift to the plane, everything else is good."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Transavia does not serve anything complementary, not even water. A flight between two countries that is five hours long must be better than this. I was not aware of Transavia doing that before I booked. I will never fly with them again"

Pros: "Muslim food"

Pros: "The crew."
Cons: "The time between flights."

Pros: "Flight and the crew!"
Cons: "Staff at the airport pushing you to upgrade to first class but not making it clear only the first trip from Athens to Amsterdam which the first class uses same uncomfortable seats as the economy to pay extra 130 euros ridiculous airfrance stuff! I should have flown all the way to NYC first class!!!"

Pros: "Great airline"

Pros: "The crew was amazing, flight on schedule and good entertainment."
Cons: "Space is just reasonable on a long flight, even if there's seats more spacious that you could choose if you pay more."

Cons: "Don’t be late"

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."

Pros: "Friendly crew, upgraded seat was worthwhile"
Cons: "More snacks in between meals,"

Pros: "Pleasant flight"
Cons: "We were delayed & missed our connection"

Pros: "the drinks"
Cons: "seat reservation. having to pay for luggage...."

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: "Food, entertainment and crew was exceptionally friendly."
Cons: "Seats not great for such a long flight."

Pros: "Cabin facilities"
Cons: "They didn’t bring one of my bags"

Pros: "yes"
Cons: "not really"

Pros: "Amazing crew"

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

Pros: "The flight arrived a few minutes early."
Cons: "The plane was extremely old and in poor repair. The seats were extremely close together. The inflight entertainment system, wifi and passenger electric outlets were all non-functional. Even the wastebin in the lavatory was full and an extra bag was put on the floor."

Pros: "Once aboard the plane, all went well and I experienced excellent service from the cabin attendants."
Cons: "The flight was delayed (again!) for some 40 minutes and I was worried that I would miss my connection flight in Atlanata. Fortunately the pilot made up for the delay (probably costing the airline thousands in fuel). It seems these days that every KLM flight I take is delayed. This stretch goes back to 2015! Yet KLM prides itself as being punctual. Not the KLM that I have been flying!"

Pros: "Nice flight ...was comfortable travel ...good food.Thanks"
Cons: "No such things"

Pros: "Very friendly crew going out of way to assist in making trip comfortable"
Cons: "Had travelled KLM to Amsterdam on my first flight 27 years ago and the aircrafts are stuck in that age! Lousy seats, poor quality bathrooms, lousy screens, prefer not to fly them"

Cons: "Unaccompanied minor flying to Lisbon overnight. Bag was lost. No real effort to assist. Bags of unaccompanied minor should be treated with priority."

Cons: "The 767 is configured oddly and th business class seats are so narrow it feel like you are sleeping in a coffin"

Cons: "Crowded seating, wake-up for breakfast service two hours before arrival"

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."

Pros: "The food was excelent"
Cons: "I have to pay to pay a little more confort"

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: "Good efficient flight crew friendly and helpful"

Pros: "The flight attendants could not do enough for you."
Cons: "Business class was pretty empty but again I was not allowed to change my seat selection online. Pathetic check-in."

Pros: "Service provided by the staff"
Cons: "The navigation of the entertainment system is not very friendly"

Pros: "From downloading the KLM app to the final touchdown of my final flight, everything was an ease, checking in, the option to change my seat, the service received was great."
Cons: "The ability to state a seat or meal preference within the app would be good but otherwise all was good."

Pros: "Usual professional and friendly service from my airline of choice for most destinations."
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "great choice of entertainment content, friendly crew"

Cons: "There weren't too many options. The movie selection was very limited and the tv show were over 20 years old in some cases"

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: "staff hospitality, cleanness of the cabin and toilet and punctuality of the flight"
Cons: "lack of meal options"

Pros: "Wide selection of entertainment, food was good."
Cons: "Boarding unorganized, but that may have been more of a passenger issue then KLM"

Pros: "It was a short flight so it was O.K."
Cons: "Boarding was odd. Go to airport early and counters were not open, did on line check in so was able to avoid the self check in at airport. Also self check in luggage seems confusing with no ground crew to help. It didn't affect me but lots of confused passenger."

Pros: "Nice, turbulent-free flight. Food was good, service with a smile. Leg space was OK because Boeing 777s are usually better at this."
Cons: "Flight left over an hour late because of a sensor glitch. It is concerning when a technical glitch happens. But, the flight was smooth."

Pros: "The crew were very friendly and accomodating, plane was clean and boarding amd disembarking was efficiently handled."
Cons: "55 minute delay was not welcome."

Pros: "leg room economy compared to KLM"
Cons: "full flight, no upgrade possible"

Pros: "Was able to check in online, very convenient and easy to access site."
Cons: "I didn't go on this flight, unable to leave Seoul (to Beijing) with China Southern."

Cons: "I slept didn't have snack offered and no entertainment"

Pros: "Excellent service"
Cons: "Having to pay extra to pick a seat prior to check-in. I didn't, and got a decent seat anyway."

Pros: "10 hour flight - I was well looked after, regular drinks, the food and snacks were good enough and tasty. The in flight entertainment was good - latest movies and worked a great variety of tv, books and movies. The airplane was modern and comfortable"

Cons: "Since we had two extra bags (paid for in Chicago), they demanded to see my receipt before we could board in Amsterdam to Nairobi. We had trouble locating the receipt and we were not given an explanation as to why we needed it again. We were traveling with 5 kids including an infant and we were not allowed to board until we found the receipt. I thought surely they would have record that I had paid, but I guess not. We were the last to board and all very stressed out. The staff seemed not to care the least in our troubles."

Cons: "Taking off late caused me stress because I had transferring flight within less than two hours in transit originally. So we arrived later about 50 minutes so I had to manage my situation and find my next gate and be on time. And an other thing that I disliked was that I was allowed to have only one baggage which was very unusual for international flight between two countenances. And the crew was not polite enough so she made fun of my Cary-on. In short, I expected more from KLM which is famous for them being "Royal" but not acting as one of them."
