Airline reviews

The entertainment selection was great, boarding process was smooth. However, the staff were so rude, my tray table was broken so had drinks split on me. I had a child coughing on me and kicking me in her sleep. The person in front of me put his seat down so far that my knees were against the seat (I’m only 5’9). The person behind me used her tray table to sleep so I couldn’t put my seat back. She woke up for breakfast, by which point I wanted sleep so I put my seat back and she complained about it so I had to put the seat upright again!

Pros: "Very friendly staff, prompt service, smooth boarding, clean cabin."
Cons: "I usually love the food on Emirates but this was really not good. Barely edible!"
Pros: "The crew was helpful. Flights were on time."
Cons: "The transfer in Dubai was to be made in 75 minutes to another terminal where the inter-terminal bus only comes every 40 minutes. Almost lost my connecting flight. Also, the seat on the FRA - YYZ leg was 23A. Couldn’t be reclined and had no leg space. Painful!"
Pros: "Excellent flights in all respects."
Cons: "Me"
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)"
Pros: "First time we flew on business on international (we upgraded)."
Cons: "Boarding took very long and seating was very weird. A lot of people including me were moved around multiple times due to seating problems. Apparently there was no sync between the staff itself and everyone was trying to solve this problem in their own way. However the good part was that they were at least trying to solve the problem! Flight was delayed by about 30 mins due to this chaos."
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: "Barcelona to Dubai flight - the flight attendants were personable, helpful, and very courteous. In-flight service was frequent with many stops to check on the passengers of a very full flight. Wonderful and attentive service, even when juggling such a large number of passengers. I was very impressed with the work ethic of this crew."
Cons: "The flight attendants on the Dubai to Singapore flight were surprisingly unhelpful. It was a mostly empty flight and yet during this flight, there were very infrequent beverage service. When I activated my call flight attendant button, no one stopped by. This included at least 3 different flight attendants passing me, some more than a few times, and not once did anyone stop. After waiting for 10 - 15 minutes, I turned off the light and went to the galley part of the plane, only to find a group of flight attendants socializing. I requested a drink and it was handed to me without the attendant every making eye contact as the attendant still was facing and engaged in their conversation. This is not the first time I have experienced this on an Emirates flight so I think the staff training may need to be reinforced. Business class service on Emirates is quite good. But I fly both Economy and Business class. The experiences in Economy did affect my decision on which airline I generally fly with for business class travel."
Cons: "Screen was black and white most of flight"
Pros: "Emirates flight and on flight services were Superb!"
Cons: "Bought tickets on Malaysian Airlines quota/allocation but was turned away by Malaysian Airlines counter becausw its operated by Emirates.

Pros: "I had never heard of Qatar Airways before I booked a 24hr flight to and from Sydney, Australia. I only did this on the suggestion from a friend that stated Qatar Airways was "alright". So for the price I thought what the heck! I was extremely pleased with the service from the cabin crew. They are always polite, professional, and well trained compared to my previous favorites Delta and Lufthansa. The seats were comfortable (as comfortable as Economy and 24hours of flying can be), the entertainment and aircraft were state of the art, and the food was outstanding for airline food. If I get the chance in the future I will definitely choose Qatar Airways for long trips."
Cons: "Other rude or snotty passengers taking up the crews time and attention for no reason. But as I stated in the "positive" side of this review, the crew handled these impolite individuals with a smile and polite attitude. Kudos to Qatar Airways."

Pros: "Comfortable seats, clean plane and airport. Only reason for choosing Qatar airways was cheapest fare."
Cons: "Few crew members attitude and services are highly unprofessional. Everything at Doha airport is way more expansive than neighboring international airports. Food quantity and quality in flights is below average. Security at Doha airport are highly unprofessional and have no respect for passengers and their privacy."

A little more comfy plus no personal items given like hand wipes before food and drinks

It wasn’t communicated that on the layover, we needed to again have our documents checked so after waiting in long line to board, we were sent back to another documents check line and then back to the long boarding line. It wasn’t a big deal but something to mention. Once on board the crew was phenomenal. Very friendly and constantly working and serving. I don’t think they got a moments rest during the 10+ hour flight. Best service on a flight in years….hands down above & beyond Delta airlines where I have my miles awards membership. Very pleased with Swiss Air.

Cons: "12 of January, 2018 Dear Austrian Airlines authority, I address to your kind attention to asist me to get to me the hat qhich I lost on board of the flight 1576 when I arrived to Vienna airport on my way frpom JFK to Lwo. It happened because it was no room above my seat's bin and the steard helped me to get my heat in another bin. Unfortunately I forgot at the moment when I left the board of the plane, a minute later I reminded that I forgot my hat but I was not allowed to go back and get my hat. I tried to communicate with the Lot&Found office in Vienna airport as I had 2h40 minutes in connection time and it was enough time to get me back the hat, unfortunately nothing was really done from the airport staff to get me my hat and made to me possible continue traveling with my hat. I spoke to two managers, the name I could share with you if you need. The Found office registered my black hat and the plastic box under the number F2018/000682. In this situation I ask your offices to deliver my hat and the plastic box to Lviv airport as sson as possible as this is a special hat for my daily prayers. I wish you best and ask for your kind assistance to send the item as soon as possible with the nearest flight. Sincerely, Meylakh Sheykhet"

Pros: "We actually did not fly with Swiss Airlines to Thessaloniki. Our flight was re-booked on another flight the following day with Aegean."
Pros: "Thank you for the sandwich!"
Cons: "Nothing!"
Cons: "There was no wifi available, the airline did not have a record of my request for a vegan meal even though I submitted one when I booked my tickets, and they claimed I did not pay for/reserve a seat (even though I had for the flight over, which I booked at the same time as the return flight), so I was stuck in a cramped middle seat for 8 hours trying to write a paper without the internet."
Pros: "Seat assignment had taken into account that we had a 45 minute window to our connecting flight. Everyone very pleasant and helpful. Fantastic help to escort us to our connecting flight so we did not miss it! Did not make us feel rushed even though time was short!"
Cons: "All good!"
Pros: "A+."
Pros: "Everything!! This airline is a huge breath of fresh (old?) air. It reminded me of how air travel used to be. No baggage charge - we only checked one bag. There was plenty of great food and drink - alcoholic drinks were free. We will definitely look to use SwissAir whenever possible."
Pros: "The crew on board was kind and polite when they had to deliver bad news"
Cons: "2 hour delay due to a morning delay at Barcelona, although that seemed odd. The delay was known early that morning. Flight from Barcelona to Zurich doesn't take long. Seems they could have rerouted, or at least sent an email or some notification. Also, the boarding staff at Zurich is rude and random about whom they let onboard with larger luggage or not. They held some people but not others. Middle seats have metal polls, making legroom awkward."
Pros: "Food was great."
Cons: "No USB. Entertainment was so-so."
Pros: "comfortable flight"
Pros: "Excellent crew"
Cons: "Terrible seats :-("
Cons: "Was asked to give up my aisle seat (D 40) seat om a 13 hour flight for a less comfortable one (F).

Neither the parent or myself felt very good about my displacement."
Pros: "Its on time"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "My luggage being lost both from Toronto to Zurich and from Zurich to Toronto. Air Canada took nearly 4 days to get my baggage to me in Toronto, as a result of which I was unable to attend a funeral in Chicago. I was lied to over and over by air Canada. The entire experience was horrible."
Cons: "our flight attendant was impatient and bossy two days after the flight my husband had to be taken to the emergency room - diagnosed with pulmonary embolism SWISS MUST DO A WAY BETTER JOB CALLING ATTENTION TO REGULAR EXERCISE ON THE PLANE!!"

Cons: "Would have been 5 stars overall if not for two hours of a child kicking me seat and occasionally poking my arm."
Pros: "Everything."
Cons: "My flight was pleasant"
Pros: "So far so good."
Cons: "There is no question about check-in?? My ticket, booked through Kayak, did not state that no baggage is included. The Swiss air just said I should have picked it up from the booking and forced me to pay Euro 30, which I will claim back from Kayak. This is gross misrepresentation and on the same ticket flying a luggage was included."
Cons: "We have bought our seats, but in the airport it was found that our seats were assigned to somebody else and nothing could be done to give them back to us"

Missed this flight due to previous flight being delayed. No one helped with getting me through customs and borders security so I can make it on time. I had to stand in the longest line and end up staying overnight in Toronto. Now the airlines won’t pay for my hotel accommodation

Very bumpy ride with lot of turbulence. However, the flight landed 25 minutes early, which shortened the time.

Pros: "Food is not bad"
Cons: "The staff told us our carry-ons are over weighted and forced us to check in 2 carry-ons and charged us 250USD! Our carry-ons are totally standard-sized but just weighted more than 8 kg. We have never encountered any airlines would rob costomers like this! Will NEVER ever fly Turkish airline again!"

Pros: "check in..Gatwick S."
Cons: "cramped, breakfast was a disgust.tasteless omelette,soggy sandwich. a disgrace."

Pros: "I loved the amount of attention and consoling that was given to an ailing elderly woman on my flight to Turkey! On my flight to Ghana the attendants were so gentle and provided a lot of ammenities. Oh and the hotel was an amazing experience and respite especially after the run-around at the airport. Thank you"
Cons: "I did not enjoy the run-around I was given in trying to find the hotel desk. “50 meters then turn left” was the anthem. All someone had to say was go outside the airport and you’ll find the hotel desk! Hehe thank you Turkish Airlines however! Thank you."
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: "I could not use my ticket I was trying to extension date but customer services terrible"
Pros: "The crew were accommodating, we departed on time, the inflight food was good and the entertaiment was varied."
Cons: "The leg room was a bit limited on long flight."

That ruined my whole holidays and I had to go all the way home from Gatwick airport and next morning going again to Heathrow airport. No transfer or taxi was provided and No single apology from the staff or company . Very disappointed with Turkish airlines !"
Pros: "Many movies to watch. There are news channels like CNN to keep you updated with what las happening in the world."
Cons: "We had a connection at Istanbul. No laptop or notebook was allowed. A small portable charger to my iPhone was confisticated even thought it is smaller than my iPhone. Turkish TSA seemed a little confused with what to confisticate. They almost took away my portable shaver too. There were 4 little kids running around aisle during the flight forcing me to watch movies instead of sleep crossing the Atlantic Ocean."
Cons: "Food was dried out and tasteless"
Pros: "No real issues, we were served a decent meal, plane was new and the crew were friendly."
Cons: "Flight was severely delayed, not due to any fault of the airline but we were left sitting on board for 90 minutes with very little information m."
Pros: "As above"
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"
Cons: "I have bought two sides ticket from Turkish Airlines. And i miss my first flight, when i came to airport for return flight Turkish Airlines cancel my return flight whitout update by email or massage by phon!!"
Pros: "I ve travelled many times on Qatar ,Emirates,and jordanian air lines but the Turkish was the poorest and the worst .A limited choices and little food ,and these people on the airplane donot do their jobs properly .I hope it will be better next time if there is a next time ."
Pros: "The entertainment choice and availability of USB port for charging was excellent."
Cons: "This leg of both of our flights (going and return) was quite cramped. Due to an unfortunate delay on our return flight, our overall day was extended from ~8 hours to 16 hours, and had us flying through the night--very unexpected and tiring. Additionally, although we requested kosher meals well in advance, the delay/cancellation of our flights and rebooking effectively cancelled our kosher meals and there was nothing for us to eat. This was very frustrating."
Pros: "Other than the late departure, everything else was excellent."
Cons: "Just the fact that we were some 40 minutes late, and this created panic among those passengers who had tight connections to Tehran, Tel-Aviv and Tbilisi. The rest was excellent!"
Pros: "surpassed our expectation"
Pros: "great company."
Pros: "flight was exactly as scheduled, flight attendance were extremly helpful and polite, food was good."
Cons: "nothing"
Cons: "time was to long between planes"
Cons: "Leg space a nighrmare!! Was uncomfortable for all the 13 hrs of the flight. Terrible experience"
Pros: "They treat economy like you're in first class. They literally give you a menu of food. The entertainment is extensive and free. It's also likely your flight will be less than half full. Tons of empty seats to lay down and sleep."
Cons: "Boarding was behind and slow and very crowded in be area."
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: "Clean, orginzed, professional pilots"
Cons: "Too hot, few meal options"
Pros: "Service when it was done"
Cons: "Infrequent service Crowded Entertainment system bad"
Pros: "Food was fantastic. There were no delays. Very enjoyable."
Pros: "The crew were very polite, professional, and accomodating. The food was tasty even for airplane food. I was pleasantly surprised! There were tons of entertainement options to help pass the time."
Pros: "Comfort of A380 Legs space"
Cons: "Terrible Connecto in Frankfurt We had to run for 15mn to get our Singapore flight with no help from Lufthansa: poor service"
Pros: "Not much went well, sorry"
Cons: "Because of bad logistics, the flight from CDG to FRA was delayed and therefore i missed my connection to AUS. Lufthansa personnel could have helped me make the second flight but didn't bother. I was rebooked on another flight through IAH which defeats the purpose of choosing a direct flight."
Pros: "Crew was very friendly and attentive. Seats were very tight and uncomfortable, specially for a 6’3 tall person!"
Cons: "Boarding could be a little bit more organized"
Cons: "Better Communication from Lufthansa"
Pros: "Good"
Cons: "Confortable seats"
Pros: "Service is excellent, comfortable seats and space between legs is comfortable even in economy."
Pros: "Nothing at all"
Cons: "They cancelled my ticket because I missed the second leg of the flight. They didn’t even offer me an option and told me to find my own flight home. I had to pay $1100 on another airline to fly home tomorrow. I will NEVER use Lufthansa again"
Pros: "for the first time ever, my kid ate the airplane food, and it was because it was good. the service was really good and the staff outstanding."
Cons: "Te cabin pressure gave us headache. always happens with the A380 though."
Cons: "Airplane food eatable"
Pros: "Crew, boarding, seat"
Cons: "Paris airport is extremely passenger unfriendly. Better to connect somewhere else"
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: "Crew and flight and service were fine"
Cons: "Economy seats are cramped"
Pros: "on time no hassle"
Cons: "nothing in particular"
Pros: "Everything was great. Not a single downside. Easy to follow announcements on connection, punctual and nice aircraft."
Cons: "Nothing."
Cons: "The fact that I was re routed that my flight from Paris was late and made me miss my connection."
Pros: "Attentive and friendly crew, good selection of in-flight entertainment"
Cons: "Crew did not come around very frequently with water throughout flight, mostly only during regular beverage service."
Pros: "The staff was communicative and genuine. The food was decent. Even though the flight arrived late I felt ok about it due to the direct communication of details about the situation. I was stuck in the extremely cramped space of seats just in front of the lavatory making the seat in front me 5 inches from my nose when reclined but the staff was sympathetic offering to ask the passenger in front of me to redress their seat more upright and also allowing me to spread out across two seats to compensate."
Cons: "While the staff compensated for the more than standardly cramped seating arrangement, I think the row of seats just in front of the lavatories should be either better designed or designated not usable. I am only 5’3” and 125lbs but still was faced with a mere 5 inches in front of me when the passenger in front of me reclined his seat. I couldn’t even stand in order to exit the row and had to crawl over the seats to my side. This had me thinking how dangerous this row could be in case of an emergency. Please consider designating these seats either not to be used or optional for passengers."
Pros: "Clean, polite and cheerful staff, good food conveniently offered, on time, decent in-flight entertainment."
Cons: "NA"
Pros: "great airport and ease of check in and quickness on boarding flight."
Cons: "boarding everyone all at once creates long unnecessary lines when staggered boarding would help"
Pros: "Clean aircraft, very friendly crew, good food, overall great trip."
Pros: "Great service, comfy plane, smooth ride."
Pros: "I love Lufthansa! Great service, comfortable, warm towels before meals served with real silverware. Amazing!"
Cons: "Service! Comfort!!"
Cons: "Flight was delayed twice. 3 hour trip took 15 hours."
Pros: "Firstly, the food was great!"
Pros: "The food for the morning was a white chocolate cranberry cookie which was delicious"
Cons: "Our plane was 30 mins late and the terminal was right next to security so we couldn’t hear them when they spoke the English or French on the PA system about us being delayed. We just barely made our connecting flight and our next flight was way better in service. Our luggage didn’t make the connection and hoping that all our precious cargo from our anniversary trip made it. The flight attendant told us we had enough time to make it to our next flight but I honestly ran from one point of the airport to the other. The staff said it wasn’t that far and no checkpoints to go through - this information was false."
Cons: "The boarding area was cramped."
Pros: "Crew attention"
Pros: "I was upgraded after all the pressure from thehurrricane this was the icing on the cake"
Pros: "Flight went well."
Cons: "Frankfurt airport is large and complex. Takes some effort to negotiate from one flight to another."
Pros: "I was sleep the whole time"
Cons: "It was okay"
Pros: "Crew were all super polite and friendly"
Pros: "The water and small coffee cake was nice to have on this connecting flight."
Cons: "First, I had issues with checking into my flight online, which lead to me having to print my boarding pass at the airport. Since I had a separate flight with Eurowings that sent me from Munich to Paris, which was not connected with this flight, I came in directly into the airport and no where near a Kiosk to check in or print out my ticket/boarding pass. I explained to numerous employees my situation and they casually exclaimed I should be able to make it in. Once I got into the airport I could barely get through security since I did not have my boarding pass. I kept explaining I don't have a boarding pass because I could not check into my flight to obtain it. Then when they finally let me through with only 10 minutes to spare before my flight's gate would close, I finally reached the boarding desk only to be told I had to wait because out of the two men who were scanning boarding passes, they were too busy to help me. I then had to explain three times that I had already paid for and booked my flight, however, I could not check in online and was having an issue with an error that stated I was missing information, even though there was nothing marked in red or anything marked to edit, so each time I tried it denied me. I also tried calling for customer support and did not get a hold of anyone because the lines were too busy. After explaining all of this to the man at boarding, he made me wait an additional 5 minutes before helping me check into the flight and print out my boarding pass. I was treated like a stand-by customer and I did not appreciate it since I paid for this flight and tried to check in 24 hours prior. I was expecting much more from Lufthansa, as my boyfriend recommended this flight company to me, but I was extremely disappointed in so many ways it makes me question whether I want to fly this airline again for future trips abroad."
Pros: "Smooth flight. No delay, no unpleasant surprise."
Pros: "On my going flight MSP to Frankfurt, I had a normal seat and as a tall person, it was miserable. The seats were so tight I had to have my legs in the aisle and constantly stand just to make it. On the return I was given an exit row and it was quite nice."
Cons: "Condor is a reduced price airline so I was not expecting a large amount of entertainment. But only two free movies was a little bit extreme. The music selection was good."
Cons: "The boarding process takes too long as people try to take too many things"
Pros: "The flight was not fully booked."
Cons: "The snack provided was totally insufficient. the check-in staff were stringent about luggage size and weight even when the flight was not full."
Pros: "All the staff was very friendly and helpful."
Cons: "Terrible leg room."
Cons: "Great customer service!"
Pros: "The flight was short and well organized, boarding relatively efficient, snack was just OK, service was nice and crew was very accommodating and seemed happy. Mobile boarding options worked well."
Cons: "Snack could be better."
Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "Old plane. Bad food. Small seats. Obsolete entertainment system. Hate United!"
Pros: "phenomenal transfer from one flight to the next, thank you lufthansa"
Pros: "Geat customer service by flight attendants."
Pros: "Lovely crew."
Cons: "Boarding process was unclear."
Pros: "The leg room was definitely more than on a US flight, which I gravely appreciated."
Cons: "Boarding was a bit chaotic -- no rhyme or reason . Pasta dish and chicken dish were both low quality."
Pros: "Boarding and flight was on time"
Cons: "Seats and comfort was heavily compromised in economy class"
Pros: "All the services were great."
Cons: "Everything was perfect."
Pros: "Smooth Ride Stewardesses"
Pros: "Fast on ant off"
Cons: "Not enough hip or leg room which is somewhat usual, but recent flights with United are much better"
Pros: "The flight was delayed due to the need to replace an engine part, but the crew kept us well informed. Despite taking off nearly an hour and half late, we were only about 45 minutes late in arriving. What was so great about this flight was that it was NOT full. I had an entire row to myself so I could stretch out and sleep. If I was in a regular coach seat, I would not have been comfortable for the entire trip. The crew was pleasant and helpful."
Cons: "The food is pretty mediocre."
Pros: "Food was terrible"
Cons: "Toilets were not clean"
