delayed, not great airport (not any lounges or real restaurants

The check-in process was being done using pen, paper (lists on clipboards) and mobile phones by the Indigo staff. Instead of using proper computer terminals with custom-built applications. It was slow and laborious.

I was so happy and at ease with the crew 100 %the best ever

The bathroom floors were coated in urine. Such an unpleasant aspect of the trip

Only the flying part was okay. They have not served food to two of us in the Doha to Hyderabad flight They told that they are not aware of our food requirements We had to travel without food

could not undertake this flight as I was denied boarding pass at the check in counter at the Houston airport, Texas, USA for my flight QA 714

This flight was cancelled

Pros: "Great crew! Excellent business class suite"
Pros: "Very organized flight , staff , etc"
Pros: "Perfect"
Cons: "Perfect"
Cons: "They do not understand the word priority at Doha airport. Business class passengers boarded last."
Pros: "N/A"
Cons: "We were told to board, but then kept in another area close on 1 hour before we could get on the plane and this area had no bathroom facilities. The spread of seating on the plane made no sense with many open seats but also many squashed rows of people. The crew was visibly tired and irritated, they also ran out of a few catering items. It seemed as if last minute, a few different flights were combined into this one which lowered the quality."
Pros: "Service was okay."
Cons: "Could have been more customer focused!"
Pros: "Food and leg room"
Cons: "All was fine"
Cons: "The vegetarian option for breakfast was a stale waffle with apple compote. Inedible."
Pros: "Food selection. However, the snacks need to be readily available on long flights."
Cons: "Entertainment is lacking behind other international carriers"
Pros: "Journey to Helsinki to Doha was good. Plenty of empty seats."
Cons: "Full packed airline Doha to Dhaka as well as flight was delayed a bit."
Pros: "Crew was very attentive especially effective helping a mother with a spoilt screaming child!"
Cons: "The food was very mediocre!"
Cons: "I was given incorrect date and missed my flight. I had to spend 750 £ and buy a flight from another airline to get home"
Pros: "Food was good"
Cons: "The flight took off late more than an hour"
Cons: "It was delayed 3hrs but no regret from staff. Doha to staff very bad and arrogant"
Pros: "The crew were very friendly and helpful."
Cons: "It seems the major airlines use older aircraft when the destination of the flight is a third world country(or Africa). The seats aren't as comfortable and the entertainment system (screens) are not as good as a Qatar and Europe bound flights."
Pros: "The flights attendants were very helpful and polite. What I enjoyed the most was the level of comfort I had. I was able to sleep for almost the entire flight. That's why it felt like it wasn't even a long flight."
Cons: "We did leave a little late but it was out of the control of the pilots and flights attendants."
Pros: "There was adequate seat room. The device was good."
Cons: "There was nothing I didn’t like."

Pros: "The service is Top Knotch!!!"
Cons: "Wasn’t much music to choose from..."
Pros: "I like how kind and caring the staff .. how they handle people specially on take off and landing they manage to smile and brief people who are first time on plane or not familiar with the rulea and safety precautions on flight"

Pros: "QA is really a five starts company , and I enjoy the trip always with qatar airways"
Cons: "Seat to LA was broken"
Pros: "I was surprised with the quality of gluten free meals served for me, it was well organised and taken care of where I never had to wait. My flight schedules were changed few days before departure by Qatar Airways, but only thing I had to do was to confirm that I have noted, my seats and all the rest of details intact, excellent."
Cons: "When the flight is changed by airline for their convenience, they would have given preferential treatment to the passengers involved. We had to bare the cost of food and make us comfortable on our own due to the delay in transit."
Pros: "Love the service, love the crew!"
Pros: "The crew aboard the flight were kind and thoughtful and definitely oriented toward service."
Cons: "The security process at the gate was really disorderly. Perhaps it is because it is a new and extra step required by the US but it was definitely not efficiently handled."
Cons: "Same as above"
Pros: "The friendliness of the staff from check in to arrival!"
Pros: "I freceuntly fly between the US and South Africa and only fly via Qatar Airways, and every experience thus far has been great. The food is good quality, friendly crew and I would recommend it to anyone."

Pros: "all"
Pros: "The movie selection was good."
Cons: "-my seat did not recline, which I understand that I was close to the emergency exit but the person in front of me could still put their seat back way farther than they should be able to and I was unable to do simple things like put my glass of water on my tray -I had a vegetarian meal which was literally just rice and ground up brown mush-I have no idea what that much was -I asked twice for new headphones because my was broken but they forgot -When the flight attendant was coming around with water and she looked me to see if I wanted any and I said yes, she just skipped over me. I didn't pay a few hundred dollars extra for this."
Pros: "Unfortunately..."
Cons: "...as mentioned, I don't have the pleasure of rating this flight because of the boarding delays and missing the flight. Very disappointing."
Pros: "Great selection of movies and tv shows"
Cons: "Entertainment screen is too dim even on highest brightness setting"
Pros: "Service of air stewards very friendly and polite"
Cons: "This goes for Qatarfigjta from harare to Doha and Doha to Washington DC and back. I am not going to give individual report on each one. Food - my daughter could barely eat anything and the vegetarian meals were stone cold most of time. It was hard to eat at Qatar airport because not only is the food terrible (Burger King and bad Asian food) but outrageously expensive. Our media system did not work for one leg. ** way to many ads on your media system. Every time you watch a new TV episode, you have to sit through 5-6 ads for stuff that is not interesting and the same each time. ** plane info on media system keeps reverting to Arabic even when English is indicated as preferred la gauge. We had to place our iPads in checked luggage for flights from harare to USA as we went through Qatar. *** I asked for quiet seats and was given seats near kitchen and toilet even though I booked in hours in advance. One leg had my ten year old daughter and I in different rows even though I checked in 4-5 hours in advance Of flight . ** staff moved my hand luggage without my permission and without informing me - it was stressful trying to find it."
Pros: "Smoothe landing"
Cons: "Old plane, some kind of tablet thing with an attached remote almost impossible to figure out even how it works. 7hr flight and I only saw the steward twice."
Pros: "Excellent experience overall, the food was decent, the seats were comfortable and had enough space for me at 6ft tall, the staff were very friendly and helpful, entertainment selection was good with plenty of new movies out. I had no problems with my layover. The baggage allowance was great as I had extra luggage from my trip. I'm very happy with their customer service, the day before my first flight I received a phone call from Qatar's customer service saying that due to delays I wouldn't be able to make my connecting flight to Edinburgh so they would like to book me on another flight instead of me having to wait 24 hours in Doha. I was thoroughly impressed with this service."
Cons: "I did not have wifi available from Doha-Johannesburg"
Pros: "Good entertainment choices"
Cons: "One of the rudest check-in staff I have ever dealt with"
Pros: "Great crews, excellent airplanes, wonderful in transit experince."
Cons: "In flight coach meals were average."
Pros: "On time departure, friendly crew. Comfortable seats for economy class, plenty of entertainment options. A pleasant experience"
Cons: "The food was okay. The hot wrap/calzone served first was not very tasteful. The breakfast/brunch was better. Not much to dislike overall."
Pros: "Again on time and effortless boarding made the overall experience a good one."
Cons: "Our suitcase was damaged...still in the process of trying to get it fixed. Hopefully it will be done soon. I will then update this report. Could maybe clean the toilets as it did become a bit messy."
Pros: "Food"
Cons: "We sat on tarmac for 3 hours with no explanation from the crew or cockpit. Because of the delay, everyone missed their connections in Doha. The crews could have jet a couple of the flights a little longer for people to make their flights. The desk was filled with people and was very chaotic. There were so many people working there but no one could give you a straight answer so it was very confusing. I had to wait at the airport for 4 hours to get it sorted and was given a food voucher for $50 for the entire stop over. I asked about a flight voucher and they laughed and said they didn't do that even though they were the ones at fault. The crew was nice and the food was good but I will never fly quatar airways unless they remedy the situation."

Everything and everyone

Good: The flight landing was smooth. Bad: Gave only a cup of water, rather than a bottle for the night. Good: The flight attendant refilled the tea cup.

The ticketing staff were amazing and helpful. The crew was nice. Hopefully Turkish airlines can have more flights coming in and out from Dulles area

Service was great the airport is amazing the flight was very comfortable

Everething was exellant

Pros: "The staff the staff the staff. They made the trip so enjoyable. The A330-300 aircraft was smooth and silent. Very impressed"
Cons: "The seats in business class were not as soft as they could be but very impressed overall and good value for the cost of the business class ticket"
Cons: "Everything"
Pros: "Food was good but not excellent. Good inflight entertainment system and choices."
Cons: "Had a missed flight due to weather delay. Made multiple calls to customer service. Multiple times the solution suggested was to go to a local Turkish Airlines office. How many companies are asking to visit a office for service in 2018? Issues were not still resolved. Aircraft seats were worn out and dirty on BOS to Ist and Ist to Miami route."
Pros: "Food was especially good."
Pros: "Liked everything about it new planes good food on time excellent crew"
Pros: "Vegetarian option was tastier than other flights!"
Cons: "They ran out of a lot of food and drinks we wanted. And almost ran out of vegetarian entrees for us even though we requested them ahead of time. Almost no leg room in coach. My touch screen wasn’t working properly which made it hard to choose and watch movies."
Cons: "Please don’t be black and travel with Turkish Airlines. They are rude and racist. Over booked flights, chances of missing connections. My son ranged the bell to ask for water. When the hostess came, she spoke to the white lady sitting next to him, the person told her it is not be that ranged it is him. He wants water, she walked away did not speak to him and never gave him the water. The only food they served was pasta. If you don’t eat that no other options. They will pump you off a flight that you purchased because they are over booked and expect you to be ok with it. No customer service at all."
Cons: "Options for vegetarians were not really good."
Pros: "They boarded on time, took off on time, and the service was friendly."
Cons: "Nothing really."
Pros: "First leg (Mia to Instanbul) crew was excellent!"
Cons: "second leg (Istanbul to Johannesburg) crew were rude!!!"
Pros: "Everything I like"
Pros: "Boarding on time. Decent food. Relatively clean aircraft"
Cons: "The staff was not great. An issue with a first class customers made them move around economy customers like they ' really not even people but utilities, all that for that one person. If they would have informed and talked with the other customers that would have been fine but being treated like a piece of furniture isn't nice. Plus, continuous strikes in Belgium see a joke, check-in luggages delayed for plenty of airlines. This country doesn't even know what strike mean anymore being so often..."
Pros: "Asian Vegetarian meal was good."
Cons: "Seats with less leg room . No WIfi facility at the gate ."
Pros: "Service, food, staff—all excellent!"
Cons: "The cabins on both flights were too warm."

Cons: "Very disorganized the gate checking, staff ne d hospitality training . You ESP not have time for your queries and concerns . They are always in a hurry to finish talkign to you . Poor hygiene. The bathrooms are very dirty and has nomjand soap to wash your hands . Male staff in board come across unpolite. ingelt inwelcomed by the male flight attendant port side at the back.?"
Cons: "There were some passengers didn't allowed to get on a flight because of over booking. Some of them didn't speek English and didn't understand why thy have to stay in the airport.On the other hand I saw how the officials laughed at him because he tried to fight for the place on the flight by using a foreign language. It is an ugly phenomenon that does not respect people"
Cons: "Bad cold food. Crowded. Hi"
Pros: "Good entertainment system with lots of options."
Cons: "The plane was uncomfortably warm throughout the (long!) flight, which made it difficult to get any rest."
Pros: "I liked the idea of offering a tour of Istanbul during long connections that Turkish airlines offer. The tour that I went on was a 2.5 hour bus ride with sightseeing from the window mostly - still it was very nice. The people organizing passengers in groups for the tour in the airport however were not so nice. When I said "I have a question", the guy literally ROLLED HIS EYES at me."
Cons: "The crew was somewhat rude and unwelcoming, both in the plane and on the ground. The seat is not comfortable in comparison with other transatlantic flights - somehow the crew and the seats were so much better on my connecting TK flight within Europe."
Pros: "The courtesy to all the passengers was great"
Cons: "14 hours on the flight that's pretty much it you can't help that from the distance I had to go"
Pros: "Fantastic food and service"
Pros: "Offered us a free meal for the poor service."
Cons: "Old, uncomfortable plane. Took off 30-40 minutes late. Poor quality food. Circled Istanbul airport for 15 minutes without any communication. Flight arrived late, but no info. on connecting flights provided. At least eight passengers ran through the Istanbul airport to catch the connecting flight to Rome and, despite the fact that the plane was still at the gate, the gate staff person would not allow any of us on the flight. Customer service staff were unhelpful and had a negative attitude. The transfer were helpful."
Pros: "Perfect trip, seats comfortable and soft even in economy and having personal entertainment was a pleasant surprise. also good selection of films. Food was just a sandwich but better quality than other companies."
Pros: "Great flight and awesome entertainment"
Cons: "The food is too small"
Pros: "Outstanding service Excellent food Adequate entertainment Seat recline was good for economy"
Cons: "For a long flight (8+ hours) legroom on this Airbus was quite cramped Again poor boarding announcements resulted in very chaotic boarding process"
Cons: "Airport in Turkey is a big mess. Too many checkpoints that make no sense"
Pros: "The flight staff was very friendly, even to difficult passengers."
Pros: "From the minute we boarded the plane, we were given refreshments and tasty food in the business class. When it was time to sleep the flight attendants made our beds for us! It was heaven! We will use this airline again!"
Cons: "If you were to become hungry in between the meals they serve, you need to go to the chef's station to pick/ask what snacks you would like. As a first timer we stumbled upon that. One of our seats didn't work but was able to scoot over as it wasn't full."
Pros: "I eventually arrived at the destination."
Cons: "Difficult to communicate with cabin crew due to lack of English. Flight was delayed by 1 hour. General atmosphere on plane was chaotic I think due to the small plane and length of flight as large numbers of people needed to use toilets."
Pros: "The Welcome from the crew member and Istanbul airport"
Cons: "Food, Drinks and the service from Crew."
Pros: "Not trying to be flattering here but it really is a good airline."
Pros: "Entertainment selection Food and beverage service"
Pros: "Dessert was good. Seat width was comfortable. Crew was courteous and helpful but could do way better."

Pros: "Everything was great , food, crew , fly, time..... thank you for a great experience ...."
Pros: "The variety of films on show was decent"
Cons: "The crew skipped our aisle whilst delivering the toiletry bags, some announcements were made purely in Turkish without regard to English passengers. The boarding gate from Istanbul was opened much later than the advertised times."
Pros: "excellent food, service"
Pros: "Food"
Cons: "Boarding and airplane age."
Pros: "Service"
Cons: "Crowded -/ entertainment equipment bad"
Cons: "I don't why the take-off and landing are late. The boarding started late! the plane stayed on the ground for minutes doing nothing! and in the end the plane arrived half an hour late!"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "WOULD NOT TAKE TURKISH AIRLINES AGAIN IF MY LIFE DEPENDED ON IT. I took a flight from JFK to Tel Aviv, with a a layover in Istanbul. Turkish delayed my first flight by 2 hours, which caused me to miss my layover, and the next flight from Istanbul to Tel Aviv was not until the next day. They made me pay for a visa to get into Istanbul, took me to a hotel about 30 minutes from the airport, and then did not serve me any food for dinner. The Istanbul airport was a mess, the flight attendants and everyone working for the airline was EXTREMELY UNHELPFUL. Then on the return flight, they changed the time of my flight at the last minute, which caused me to almost miss it. On top of that, they lost my baggage and took a week to get it back. DO NOT EVER FLY TURKISH, YOU WILL REGRET IT."
Pros: "Really amazing service."
Pros: "Excellent service."
Cons: "Istanbul airport takes some getting used to."

The food was not testy and unhealthy if you serve Potatoes it's create gas in body and unpleasant,

Seats extremely uncomfortable, broken and would not recline, very hard cushions, food was unpalatable and masks were not optional. Flight from Munich was delayed, updates were not too good. Overall very poor performance of this airline

Food is very poor

No screen map on in front of you to track the flight like Turkish air! No food or coffee for 2h30 just a small plain water and a very small piece of chocolate🤔

Pros: "Vegetarian option of the food. Constant hydration"
Cons: "WiFi"
Pros: "Inflight services"

Pros: "Smooth and easy flight"
Cons: "Food and drinks served late"

Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "The service and the airplane"
Cons: "Nothing at all"
Pros: "Great departure time. Super comfortable even in coach."
Cons: "The second meal was a bit skimpy and not so tasty."
Pros: "The service was outstanding!"
Cons: "Someone stole my phone charger :("
Pros: "Gentle crew"
Cons: "1,5 hours delay again"
Cons: "Lufthansa has a horrible website. I wanted to check in online but I had to no reservation or ticket number is provided so I had to go to my old reservations to find it. .Next I wanted to pay for my luggage online but there was no link given. It says you can do it cheaper on Lufthansa.com but I could not find where you can actually do that. All in all spend 30 minutes with no result. Had to pay at check in $44 instead of $27. And it was just one of many other problems and inconveniences with their website."
Pros: "I liked the interior of the cabin and the crew was professional. Crew on this flight was Ok."
Cons: "Food was not good, but I really do not care too much about that... If you judge an airline based on the then fly someone else..."
Pros: "One airhostess ruined my flight experience. Anyway in the beginning on the journey my daughter was not well and other crew members gave her candies. I liked the sweet gesture."
Cons: "I was traveling with my daughter. There was no food choice left for my child and me. Crew member rudely said there is only beef option left do you want to have it? I said no. I asked her are we not going to get anything to eat since you are out of options. She continuously kept on repeating that I said no and that she kept emphasizing that there is only beef option left. Finally she save the supplement To meal. Her tone was very impolite when especially we pay so much and service we get for a long flight is good"
Pros: "Good movie selection"
Cons: "Not enough room for food tray to come down. Food was horrible."
Pros: "Nothing!"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Not making the flight dinto issues caused by the airline."

Cons: "Water was spilled on me by flight attendant. Luggage was left in Frankfort. Did not have clothes or medications, or daily necessities. Must wait 1 1/2 days to get luggage"
Pros: "Crew was excellent."
Cons: "Food needs to be improved. Salad was old, and hot tea was lukewarm . It wasn't a Swiss quality for sure!"
Pros: "Service is good, you actually get food and drinks, thanks for that."
Cons: "The seats in the economy class are too small. Not once did I have someone sitting next to me who could actually fit in his seat. They weren't particularly large people, just average men but their arms were in my space all the time. Also if I drop something, I cannot pick it up, there's no room. For transatlantic flights the seats should be bigger."
Pros: "Crew was friendly and professional."
Cons: "Seat wasn't the best in premium economy. Quite hard with little support."
Pros: "service, good quick flight"
Cons: "late departure in Frankfurt; high noise level of the Embraer plane;s engines; failing AC in the cabin"

Pros: "Very nice staff at the gate and awesome media selection on the plane."
Cons: "The on board entertainment sucks you need to upgrade"
Pros: "Friendly. And efficirnt crew"
Cons: "The cabin got a little hot during the night and made it hard to be comfortable. Also, the seats lean pretty far back so I had little room in front of me when the person sitting in front of me leaned their seat all the way back."
Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Not a thing"
Pros: "This plane was an airbus, while the plane I took to Europe was a boeing something. Economy was much more comfortable and there were great entertainment options. I also like the frequent brandy, Bailey's, and water service. The flight attendants were nice and at least appeared to care about the level of service they were providing."
Cons: "This probably is just personal preference, but I didn't like the meal options all that much. But that's about it. Mind you, I eat German food often in the States, so the type of cuisine wasn't the problem."
Pros: "my favorite airline"
Pros: "The crew was great. The seats were ok."
Cons: "Check in was very, very slow, for some reason."
Cons: "It was delayed by 9.5 hours!!!!!"
Pros: "Shortness of flight from Genoa to Munich"
Cons: "Layover following"
Pros: "nice services."
Cons: "no order in boarding and no chairs in Panama airport. Had to stand for 2 hours before boarding."
Cons: "No seating area at or near the gate we boarded at, and as boarding was delayed, many people ended up standing for some time because we did not wish to wander too far and then be late for boarding."
Pros: "Lufthan changed aircraft and totally screwed by seat assignment, very bad."
Pros: "Very friendly and accommodating crew, efficient service, nice breakfast pastry for the short flight to Frankfurt"
Cons: "Would have been nice to have an entertainment option, but I had a book, so the 2.5 hrs went fast enough."
Pros: "Munich airport is convenient and boarding went smoothly"
Cons: "This was an SAA plane, not Lufthansa. I have only had excellent service on Lufthansa. This flight again did not have a functioning entertainment system. I asked for this to be addressed and the SAA crew ignored the request and in the morning looked surprised to find out that several of the TV monitors had not worked at anytime on the flight. Not impressed."
Pros: "Glad to have a sandwich; it tasted good. The caterers use lots of mayonnaise on the cold cuts which can be messy since it was oozing out but I like gooey food rather than dry food so I was happy. Very nice crew."
Cons: "Just odd that I walked a mile thru the airport to make the connection only to board a shuttle bus that went back the same direction for the longest such ride in my life, past parked planes, maintenance areas, fuel storage tanks and finally the cargo plane section where our plane was located. Might be hard on those more impaired than I am to handle the stairs down to the bus loading dock and again up into the plane."
Pros: "Service was good, boarding was fast, no other issues."
Cons: "The seat pitch is inhumane. I could barely fit into the seat without hitting my knees on the seat in front. And that was before the person ahead of me reclined. It's not like Lufthansa is a budget airline. It's a full-fledged major carrier charging full-fledged prices. Seriously, I was expecting more."
Pros: "Organized"
Pros: "Crew worked hard to make the journey pleasant, including the second crew for my connection to New York JFK, a much longer flight. Even some of the food was edible."
Pros: "Its an A380 so nice and new"
Cons: "The entertainment system had a horrible interface with touch screen that didn't work well, and had to move seat because audio jack was faulty"
Pros: "Prompt boarding and takeoff, good space, comfortable seats, good food."
Cons: "Nothing"

Delay information

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: "Terrific hot breakfast in bus. class"
Cons: "Window did not darken like the others."
Pros: "Services is good ."
Cons: "Food can be better"
Pros: "The crew was professional & friendly"

Pros: "Crew helpful. Food good."
Cons: "Better range of movies please"
Pros: "Great crew, comfortable seating with enough leg room."

Pros: "Seating is tight. The crew was great !"
Cons: "As we landed we had to wait on the plane for an hour and a half because another plane (Spirit) was in our “parking spot.” This made it very difficult for people and connecting flights."
Cons: "Larger meals."
Pros: "Very pleased with KLM - efficiency all round and especially the baggage handling at Schipol swhere I had 20 minutes to transfer and my baggage came back with me to the UK which is no mean feat given the hustle and bustle of such a large airport"
Cons: "No downsides at all"
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: "The crew were amazing and the flight was very smooth."
Cons: "Keep up the good work"
Pros: "The crew!!"
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."

Cons: "Could be better, say, like with Singapore Airlines.."
Pros: "meal"

Pros: "The crew was helpful and polite, food was good"
Cons: "Would have preferred to watch one comedy movie. The crazy rich Asians was on a lighter side of a movie but I had seen that one already."
Pros: "I enjoy my flight"
Cons: "Again no complains"
Cons: "Finnair used to be a good airline but it has deteriorated significantly. The flights are expensive but uncomfortable. The airline uses every opportunity to save money and charges through the nose for everything. The morale of the crew is low."
Pros: "Loved it"
Pros: "It was a pleasant enough trip. Friendly crew, surprisingly decent food for a flight, and some decent entertainment available, though admittedly my headphones broke within a couple of hours for some reason, but by then I was nearly asleep anyway."

Pros: "I'm alive. The plane did not implode. No crashes! The crew was polite. Plane was very late leaving. Not a good thing."
Cons: "Had to pay more for extra baggage than a person with the "right" ticket #'s. How to know this trivia in Feb. when buying ticket? My starting #'s did not allow me to prepay online. Instead, rush to airport, pay more by having to pay in person. 2. I also could NOT get my boarding pass online. Instead, forced to drive to airport day before just to be sure I'd be on plane! Finnair counter, Hannele politely double-checked all's well, handed me boarding pass. Hannele told to buy extra baggage online being cheaper. This promise, not accurate. Absurd!"
Pros: "The airport it's very nice and clean.."
Cons: "The 40 min layover between SVO-HEL and HEL-JFK required security check and walking approx. 30-gate distance. It was well organized, but still straining."
Pros: "Hot towels distributed before meal."
Cons: "Sitting behind me plus the seat across from that in center was an adult with two children going to summer camp in US. There were 40 kids and several counselors on this flight. These two kids were much younger (4 or 5yrs) than any others going to camp. One of the kids could not sit still. The adult behind me sometimes held her in her lap which resulted in pushing on my seatback. While in her own seat the child did not have her seat belt on. Eventually the girl began using her arm rests on either side of the aisle to swing herself. I finally mentioned this and the lack of seat belt fastening to F.A. who said "They're from Latvia. These Eastern Europeans don't think about things the way you and I do." The child was blocking the aisle at times and the F.A. did nothing."
Pros: "Pilots did a great job at Helsinki. There were a strong wind and rain. Crew was really sweet."
Cons: "There was a confusion with boarding passes in Helsinki. Some of passengers were waiting almost until beginning of boarding with no seat number. Also was a delay because they're waiting for a some passenger from a connecting flight . Seats haven't enough leg room for person 5"8 but crew and food was amazing."
Pros: "I'm so happy to be able to travel with my small dog in cabin. I've travelled from Miami to Helsinki and back with a dog at least 30 times in the last 16 years. The service has always been very good. I choose the airline always based on what's best for my dog."
Pros: "Flight was delayed, and I ended up staying in hotel and spending the while next day traveling. It was very unfortunate, I lost 24 hours. But the hotel was nice."
Pros: "They gave us a warm cloth to wash our hands and face at the beginning of the flight. There was a bottle of water there too. We were constantly offered various drinks, especially water. The staff was extremely friendly and each of the flight attendants spoke about 4 languages."
Cons: "The entertainment system wasn't the best I've seen as of late. It's not a big deal, but it would be nice if they updated it!"
Pros: "In JFK the Finnair staff helped us expedite our connection process (the flight from Helsinki was delayed and we hardly had time to make the connection)."
Cons: "The flight was delayed by almost 4 hours. It was a miracle we made our connection in JFK."
Cons: "We paid for economy comfort and signed up for the 2x2 seats. Instead we received the 2 seats in the middle of 4. we were more than upset, there is no way we would every request the 2 worst seats in that area and given my husband is 6'6' Did not make for a happy experience."
Pros: "It was a short plane ride that was pleasant."
Pros: "Comfort?: had a fat neighbor whose elbow was in my robs"
Pros: "Everything went smoothly"
Cons: "announcement in English hard to understand"
Cons: "I ended up sitting in the last row although arrived at the airport early, but was placed on standby."
Pros: "The option of having a direct flight between Helsinki and Miami. The plane was clean and the seats comfortable."
Cons: "The flight was 1 1/2 hrs late!!!! This seems to be a regular pattern from what I understand from others who have travelled the same itinerary. Not good if this becomes your reputation. The crew was not very attentive during good service. It was more of a routine / rush job rather than making sure that everybody was served and got what they needed ( had to ask for my dinner as my row was skipped and was never offered coffee before landing). The crew seemed rather young and inexperienced. The food was below average!!!! Especially the chicken patty before landing - seriously!!!!! Why not include a little bit of Finnish / Scandinavian cuisine to emphasize the Finnair brand!!! Entertainment was also below average. There needs to be more variety - especially for the TV selection, which had only 2 options!!! No music and no games?? Also, it would be nice to have access to a flight map. Too few accessible WCs"
Cons: "Could not watch any video on screen. Crew tried to reboot my and my partner's screens but they did not work for the 9-hour flight."
Pros: "Well this was a first for me. The flight was overbooked and some one wanted to go to New York. Finn Air asked me if I would give up my seat they would get me on the next Finn Air flight to Chicago. I did and they even up graded me to business class on the next flight. It was the best flight experience of my life. Great food, hosts, and service. It was very comfortable the entire way."
Pros: "The good"
Pros: "Blueberry juice!"
Cons: "No food."
Pros: "Everything well organized"
Cons: "None"
Pros: "One cool things is that some of the moveis were translated with several different languages in addition to English and Europearn languages."
Cons: "Distance between the seats are short and seats are somehow uncomfortable."
Cons: "did not get to Helsinki in first place; flight from Warsaw to Helsinki canceled by Finnair (# 742) put in another plane, from other provider (LOT) going straight to Chicago; was not ready for it; we arrived at airport 2 hr before time of boarding and were rushed to plane going up in 45 min; very stressful; my daughter cried and we had no time to say good bays to family paid for selected seats - money not returned selected special meal - stayed hungry (8 hr fly) because they were not aware about our special needs; Finnair shold take care of it when canceling flight and putting us with other provider."
Pros: "Flight attendants were courteous and efficient, boarding flowed smoothly."
Cons: "Customers should be able to indicate their food preference before the flight, i.e. chicken, beef, vegetarian, etc., instead of taking pot luck or paying more than $12 for the option of selecting beforehand. In addition, there is a great deal of waste in giving everyone sugar, salt, creamer, etc. I know it's more efficient for the flight attendants, but I hate to see so much waste."
Cons: "Something that was unpleasant was if someone spoke through the announcement system it would be very loud through the headphones if someone is listening to a movie or music"
