Over 3 hours of delay without any assistance from klm

Dreamliner was comfortable and entertainment system good

Pros: "Very nice airplane and pleasant crew"
Pros: "Very friendly and responsive crew. Announcements from the Capitan and chief of flight attendants are very informative and comforting. Seat positions: very good leg room (even in economy)!"
Cons: "Newer airplane, as 747s are kind of outdated now, especially for long distance flights. But overall had good experience with KLM"
Pros: "15 years ago I told myself not to fly Delta anymore. But these 2 flights Detroit to Amsterdam and back changed my mind. I enjoyed the flight very much and I'm looking forward to the next one."
Pros: "Planes were on time and connections made."
Cons: "One bag delayed as not put on flight and food could be better."
Pros: "The crew were excellent and seats were comfy."
Cons: "Headphones for the entertainment centre.could have been better. Sound quality not great."
Pros: "Seats were super comfortable, bigger than most planes with extra leg room. Food was excellent and fresh, amazing Dutch cheese sampler was divine. No nonsense staff who had all connecting flight info on hand when we arrived in Abu Dhabi. KLM staff were friendly and efficient. Fabulous airline."
Pros: "Boarding was quick and flight was calm"
Cons: "The coffe and breakfast."
Pros: "Seat comfortable"
Cons: "Flight was delayed and overhead bin space was very small"
Cons: "Flight on time would have been good when you have a late evening arrival. Long wait for luggage at Birmingham airport."
Cons: "The check in desk was late opening & the carry on luggage size was smaller than advertised on their website, so it had to be put in the hold. Open on time to prevent less stress to travelers & give more accurate information about cabin luggage."
Cons: "At the check in they made me pay 50€ for my luggage. This is really upsetting because from Houston to Venice they didn't make me pay. Either the website wasn't transparent or the lady at the desk made a mistake. Very upsetting, one luggage should be included."
Cons: "Landlords gave an unpleasant service! Which continued with late of 50min of the flight, they didn’t do anything to help/ to provide the passengers the answers. The food was cold It was comfort place to sit. Bad experience with KLM"
Pros: "The service"
Cons: "The seats"
Cons: "Nothing special"
Pros: "Time and Good clean place.. in This case airpöane.."
Cons: "It was not entreteiment st all"
Pros: "Good flight, arriving well on time."
Pros: "Good entertainment options. Nice flight attendants"
Cons: "It would be helpful for short people to be able to adjust the head rest lower on the seat. More recent released movies would be helpful. More leg room. Not charging more money to choose seats."
Pros: "The boarding was easy and you didn't have to wait inline for that long"
Cons: "KLM needs to upgrade the entertainment. It was very hard to see the images on the screen. The planes that KLM uses are old and they sure need to be upgraded."
Pros: "Good services!"
Cons: "Our two hour connection in Paris became 30 minutes because Air France was late in leaving Washington. So our luggage didn't make to to KLM to Amsterdam. My poor rating was because the luggage handling was really poor. Lots of flights from Paris to Amsterdam (almost hourly), but my bag showed up 12 hours later. My wife's bag took 36 hours. And yes, we checked in together. There were lots of confusing messages"
Pros: "Friendly attendants. Decent food, and frequent snacks and beverages."
Cons: "No charging ports for electronic devices."
Pros: "Sandwich was incredibly tasty (although not much filling)"
Cons: "2 hours on the tarmac delayed with no explanation. Uncomfortable seats, no leg room. Poor management of seating, there was enough empty seats to have groups together but they were split up. Drinks served from a communal bottle in a polystyrene cup."
Cons: "Actually the Welcome on board announcement. The part where they special welcome loyalty program members. I do not get that... I am an explorer holder my self, but really?? so other paying customers are not as welcome. This is leftovers from the older days.."
Cons: "Unaccompanied minor flying to Lisbon overnight. Bag was lost. No real effort to assist. Bags of unaccompanied minor should be treated with priority."
Pros: "Booked extra room seat which gave me good room for seating"
Pros: ".Very much on time with pleasant service."
Cons: "Can nit find much fault fir a short run!"
Pros: "Only thing we liked was the fact that we were able to get onto our flight at all..."
Cons: "Was not informed that checking in online is the only way to secure a seat. So, regardless of whether you book your tickets 3 months in advance or the day before, you're not actually guaranteed a seat unless you check in online. We weren't told this until we were at the airport and checked in there that we might not be able to get our pre-booked in advance flight because of over-booking from KLM. We then had to wait and see if there were seats available when boarding. Luckily, there were, but we were not sat together. Not the greatest start to our first holiday together as a couple. We were told that if there weren't seats available, they'd pay for us to get to another airport to fly out, which would have meant a huge delay on the only time off we'd get together this year and have to rearrange our pre-booked and pre-paid living arrangements for the week. All because there wasn't a lot of emphasis on the need to check in online before hand. You'd think if someone checked in at the airport, that would be more of a guarantee that they'd be flying with you that day, but apparently not. Definitely not impressed or happy with this part of the KLM experience. This is the only company that we've had this problem with, they should make it clearer that it is essential to check in online."
Pros: "Very friendly and helpful personnel."
Pros: "Boarding was a breeze and the staff were lovely. Online check was very simple and easy to navigate."
Cons: "The amount of extras you have to click no to while checking in online."
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: "Nice seats, comfortable."
Cons: "Again, no aisle seat for SkyTeam Gold member. Also, my baggage was lost. First bag arrived a day late, second after I had left Billund and it was six days before the bag with my clothes reached me. I was told I will have 100 euro credit for clothing, but in the winter and for 6 days, this was not even close to the amount I needed for clothing and necessities, to have my time here."
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: "Ground staff at Manchester very helpful"
Cons: "Information on KLM website and flight status said 50 minutes delay and was never updated with the true status. 3 hours before we took off. KLM blamed the fog at Manchester but to be honest most other flights seemed unaffected. Put up in an IBIS hotel and fed substandard food and shitty hotel room with an Aircon unit that clunks into action every 30 seconds keeping me awake. It's external so I can't switch it off. Being given a 10 Euro voucher for food at the airport when most food and a drink will cost you 12 to 15 euros."
Pros: "Thankful for coffee being served without charge. Not all airlines do that."
Pros: "Eveything is well arranged"
Cons: "Nothing"
Cons: "That I was forced to check my baggage. I never received a chain ticket for my luggage. The flight has a 32 hour layover and KLM lost my luggage and it was not found until a week after my arrival back home. I still have not received my bag at this time. The boarding crew was manually tracking who boarded and who didn't. It was a cluster."
Cons: "Our flight was canceled from Amsterdam to Bordeaux and did not receive any direction and had to find alternate flights for ourselves with the personal expense of using our own cell phones. Then our luggage lost for 3 days. Not happy!"
Cons: "Our flight was canceled from Amsterdam to Bordeaux and did not receive any direction and had to find alternate flights for ourselves with the personal expense of using our own cell phones. Then our luggage lost for 3 days. Not happy! We ended up flying from Toronto to Paris then to Bordeaux. Lost my upgrade money for seats. Now have to deal with KLM for refund!"
Cons: "Why do the crew have to slam the overhead and catering compartments to get them to shut?"
Pros: "Overall, my trip to Cardiff via Amsterdam was smooth and delightful. I've flown a few short trips this summer and I was pleasantly surprised to find KLM still offered complimentary snacks. What a refreshing change!"
Cons: "There was no entertainment which is why I assigned that category only one star. The boarding process in Amsterdam could have been a bit smoother. Announcements were no clear."
Pros: "staff hospitality, cleanness of the cabin and toilet and punctuality of the flight"
Cons: "lack of meal options"
Pros: "I fly delta this was run by KLM they weight all bags delta does not they don't take TSA preach Check. Delta does It was a free for all with check in and getting into plane"
Cons: "See above"
Pros: "The cabin crew were fantastic and funny"
Cons: "Tiny seats"
Pros: "Flight attendants tried their best given what they had to work with."
Cons: "They can not retire these old Boeing 747's soon enough. Due to mechanical problems, our flight arrived at LAXfour and a half hours late and further problems with the cargo door caused an additional one hour delay of our take off."
Cons: "I requested low fat meals. The first one, was OK. But they forgot my request for the second one."
Pros: "Excellent service and comfortable flight"
Cons: "Flight delay roughly an hour"
Pros: "Boarding was smooth and hassle free, crew were friendly and helpful, food and drinks were very good, entertainment system is awesome and up to date with latest contents, good flight overall"
Cons: "Cabin noise and air conditioning too cold, didn't sleep well"
Pros: "If you would like to learn more you can call me 628.600.8825 Very dissapointed"

Very tight leg space in the cabin

Pros: "El entretenimiento"
Cons: "Demasiadas mascotas sin posibilidad de descanso. Un gato en ej asiento del frente que no dejó de hacer ruido y dos asientos atrás un pero en la misma situación. Debería tomar más medidas para el viaje de mascotas"
Pros: "There is a nothing to mention that was memorable or comfortable."
Cons: "I asked for an upgrade as we are on our honeymoon. The ground staff only wanted to get us on the plane and not try in anyway to recognize us. Our seats were very poor quality, you should immediately replace them! I would have rather stood than sit on the flight. The in flight entertainment is so poor. Absolutely disappointing especially with the head sets not working because of poor ports of connection. The food was absolutely tragic. You should fire your catering company. I expect more from your airline and I was disappointed all the way through. I hope you can provide my wife and I better service and an upgrade when we fly back to Washington DC on Flight AF 0054 from CDG to IAD. I work in the luxury hotel sector, and even the door men and room attendants have more autonomy to wow our guests. Flying AF does not want me to spend any more money with your airline in the future."
Cons: "I was catching a flight in Paris to Aberdeen after arriving from Malaga. The time between flights was not enough 55 mins as the gate closed 20 mins before departure and it takes at least 15 minutes from arrival to taxi to the terminal and then get off the plane. I had to change from terminal F to E which was well sign posted but I only made it with 4 minutes to spare"

Pros: "rien"

Cons: "Service lag a little"
Pros: "Entertainment system failed repeatedly."
Cons: "Entertainment system failed repeatedly."
Pros: "Excellent service"
Pros: "Food"
Cons: "Seat"
Cons: "Crew forced me to change my upgraded comfort seat to accommodate a 12 year old who they knew was going to be airsick. So I spent the first half of the flight next to a vomiting girl. Only after I asked to file a complaint, they allowed me one of two empty seats in premium. Terrible customer service."
Pros: "On time, no hassle."
Pros: "The flight departed on time and arrived early. The crew were all courteous and kind even to the man who was sitting next to me who seemed quite demanding."
Cons: "I am small but the seats seemed a bit too tight. The plane itself seemed a bit outdated."
Pros: "Tight seat, was moved out of exit row because of my age"

Cons: "N/A"
Cons: "Too much time spent at boarding. On luggage missing."

Cons: "I didn't get to board, ended up spending $2,400.00 over and above the $980.00 that I spent booking the initial ticket. I was not informed when I booked the ticket that when you transit through 2 schengen countries, you need a transit document. I was informed about it at then airport. Not only did I miss my flight, I had to book for the next day at a outrageous price. SUPER BAD CUSTOMER SERVICE...BOTH KAYAK and PRICELINE. Will never recommend you guys to anyone."
Pros: "SFO - CDG (Air France) was a great journey in all respects. But the one major reason for that was, the middle seat was empty. I was so fresh after the journey, would definitely recommend this flight to anyone."
Cons: "The flight was delayed by atleast 45 mins and therefore had to rush at the CDG airport to catch the next flight."
Pros: "The size of the plane was nice. They had a good move selection. The vegan meal I was given was great."
Cons: "It was loud, cold, the food was just okay at least my vegan meal was the bomb but it would have been better had when we booked the flight it allowed me to also choose this option for my husband. Since he is vegan as well."
Cons: "Because of change in plane..bad choice of seat for long legs of husband...then late in Atlanta and very late into DC"
Cons: "I will not use o recommend to anyone to buy a ticket with the agency, at the airport in China we were treated like criminals because as they said we were not register in the system as passengers it was really a nightmare"
Pros: "From the boarding, to the friendly hostesses to the food and the business class seat, I was impressed all the way. My first time to fly Air France business to the US and it was great. I recommend it!"

Cons: "Plane left more than 40 minutes late with no explanation or apology."
Pros: "Ok"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "We got to the desk to check in and there was one person being served in front of us. He finished with him, turned and left the area through the dooor. No one came to help us for 15 minutes. Then they came out to answer the phone and said we were 10 minutes past the cut off and we could not fly."
Cons: "Staff just walked away while we were in line, the rudeness and mean attitude, they blamed us for being too late after ignoring us and made us late, they didn't offer an alternative flight until we asked. Overall, horrible customer service. Never been treated so rudely by people in the airlines industry in my entire 42 years of flying!"
Pros: "The stewardesses were extremely kind and helpful to me as I was travelling alone with my toddler. I really appreciated their help and kindness."
Pros: "I liked the crew, they were professional and tried their best"
Cons: "The flight was a chartered flight . Air France informed us that due to cabin crew shortage they couldn't operate an air france flight and hence they hired Air Belgium. Whilst the crew were nice , the actual plane was old and creaky. It wasn't up to the standards expected of Air France. They could have done better in getting a plane up to standard. A lot of the passengers were disappointed ."
Pros: "It was quick, very good space in premium economy. Good and friendly service. The food was better than expected"
Cons: "The crew did not announce the score of soccer cup semi final between Belgium and France"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "The seat seemed smaller and space was very uncomfortable. The boarding process was very painful because we had to wait for a longtime."
Pros: "Nithing"
Cons: "They were unfreindly and rude."
Cons: "at no point when buying my ticket did the site say zero bags were included. In fact, when purchasing it said that information about baggage was not available.Shocked to have to pay 50 dollars for one bag. I am member of Flying Blue. One bag has always been included in the price of a ticket flying transatlantic."
Pros: "The cabin crew was very good!"
Cons: "The economy premium seats are very uncomfortable"
Pros: "I would like to come on time each trip because I got two late time before with airfrance"

Cons: "Late takeoff, priority seating happens same time as general boarding, two pieces of lost luggage"
Cons: "The leg-space is very narrow The chair is very tiring No entertainment at all Food was tasteless But most surprising was that we were on stand by for our connecting flight. Though we bought the tickets months ago and we got our luggage checked in all the way to the final destination."
Pros: "Other crew members were very polite to us, in particular a younger tall woman."
Cons: "2 crew members, one named Terri were quite rude and short with us. I even heard her say she was ready to get off the flight. She also asked everyone around me if they liked their flight but did not ask me. She basically threw my coffee condiments at me and dismissed my concerns about the food. I was unsure if the fruit was expired and she quickly dismissed my question without any real explanation."
Pros: "The food was good, the staff was very friendly and very nice,"
Cons: "The seat configuration in economy is unacceptable, the leg room is terrible and overall a very uncomfortable flight of more than 7 hours"
Pros: "I didn't feel cramped in a Window Seat. Two meals were served during the flight. It was nice to get back to being fed something other than skippy snacks on an airline flight."
Cons: "I was ignored over and over again as ice cream, drinks and snacks were offer by the crew. It would have been nice if some would ask me before falling asleep if I wanted to be roused for snacks and desserts. After being on back to back flights of more than 10 hours each it would be considerate for the crew to be aware of my length of travel and to make sure they don't assume my resting my eyes is the same as me being asleep. Even when I was awake it appeared I was being overlooked, ignored and left out of complimentary services I saw other receiving....my bad for not asking to be noticed."
Pros: "Average flight"
Cons: "Food on AF montreal - paris flight and totally rude stewardesses"
Pros: "The service & food were excellent! Outstanding. Boarding was efficient, crew was polite & helpful. I've never utilized such high-tech entertainment. It was great to be able to select movies, tv, music etc. whenever I was ready."
Cons: "Can't think of anything."
Pros: "Entertainment and priority air sircharge was worthwhile on long flight with connection. Seats were very comfortable with enough recline. Provided multiple beverage and food services."
Cons: "The Delta staff were unprofessional. Checking phones while people boarded, handed unopened beverage to 2 unknown strangers to pour themselves and share. We're "joking around" amd jobial in a manner that was unprofessional. Food was hot but overlooked and pastry was "steamed" so chewy."

Everything was good

Missed connection due to a 1,5 hours delay of first flight, resulting in a 24 hours delay at destination. Poor assistance at the airport. Long wait, with not even internet connection. Awful experience.

For a Business Class this was the worst I have ever flown.

They didn’t notify anyone that the CDC had changed it’s entry requirements and cost me my flight. I will never fly with them again.

Terrible! They refused to let me board because of new travel restrictions, then tried to charge me an additional 3,000 eu to rebook.

Pros: "Comfortable economy"

Pros: "The seat was good"

Pros: "Crew was nice and cordial, meal service was ok food itself was okay not bad but not superior, the aircraft was a pretty new 737-800 limited english choices of movies"

The plane was clean and presentable, especially the lavatories. The seats were comfortable and the blankets provided worked well too."
Cons: "Food was bland and the chicken dish was dry and difficult to chew. Movie selection on the entertainment system was mediocre, with limited variety of films in general and especially limited variety in languages other than English and Arabic. A problem which I encountered on board was a big gap between the ventilation panel at the base of the wall and the flooring, through which the dessert of my meal fell and which presented the risk of losing further items. I hope this is fixed promptly."

Staff was great, food was great (two meals), drink options were great from juices, sodas, water, tea, coffee all great. the entertainment was awesome with so many movie/tv show options. and you can always get up and ask for a beverage if you were still thirsty, and plenty of toilets on the plane so rarely a line greater than 1 person."
Cons: "They seemed to run out of chicken as the dinner meal, when they got to my the flight to Cairo from NY they also ran out of chicken, the person next to me got the last one, the same thing happened to me on the way to NY, the person next to me got the last chicken, i was kind of upset but the other option of beef was still good."
Pros: "There was an hour delay with the return fight, other than that a great experience."

Pros: "Friendly crew. Excellent check-in. Priority bags came off first."
Pros: "Food and drink was good."
Cons: "Every single flight (4 total) took off late and even caused us to miss a connection. On the way to Madrid from Entebbe, my luggage was mislabeled and sent to London and now is completely lost. It has been two days of a trip of having no clothes, shoes, or toiletries other than what I had on my person. And I have yet to hear from anyone with Ethiopian Airlines, only representatives from Madrid airport."
Cons: "Better seat"
Pros: "The crew was very nice and all flight details were available and constantly updated."

Cons: "The food could have been better. Honestly much better"
Pros: "The staff and flight attendants were pleasant. Good entertainment and comfortable enough seats."
Cons: "I wasn't looking forward to the 11 hour flight, however the 4+ hour delay was a significant inconvenience. We were on the tarmac in Abidjan for almost an hour, before we were informed that there were some technical issues. We were told it was a minor issue, until clearly it was a large enough issue as a lot of time passed by. Air stopped flowing so many passengers including myself became uncomfortably hot and dehydrated. The flight attendants only came down the aisle once with water, which was not considerate enough given that the air stopped flowing. Finally close to two hours later passengers we instructed to disembark without mention of how long the wait would be. We re-boarded the flight after about an hour and only then were informed that there was not enough power to fly the plane. Once we took off the air flow returned and the flight overall was pleasant. While safety of course is a priority, especially for a long overnight flight, communication could have been much better."
Cons: "The most unprofessional ground staff I have met coupled with the most disorganised airport"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "I was overbooked in Addis"

Cons: "Transportation from the aircraft to terminals."
Pros: "I liked the services of the air hostess: they were very polite. The flight was also very comfortable and enjoyable."
Cons: "The person who gives information should speak the English language portion slowly and clearly for better understanding of passengers"
Pros: "the flight"
Cons: "extra charge , unable to book meal"
Cons: "Spent 10 hours in a broken seat... wouldn’t recline. Screen on next seat was broken so I couldn’t move there. Bathroom out of toilet paper and at the end of the flight there was SO MUCH TRASH AND STUFF EVERYWHERE it looked like the ground at an outside 3 day concert. I’ve never seen such a filthy plane. And the food needs improvement."
Pros: "Attendants were courteous and the spacing is better than some airlines, but that’s about it."
Cons: "Check in was a disaster: no logical control of 100s of people; delayed on the tarmac for 1:45 for a “minor technical reason” that apparently had nothing to do with the actual operation of the plane that prevented me from making my next flight. Food was terrible. Flight attendants could have been more helpful about my missed connection."
Cons: "Flight was delayed again. No priority boarding for Star Alliance members. Staff was unfriendly."
Pros: "Very calm, professional and willing to help you enjoy the flight as much as possible. They show true concern and not a detached professional management that you get from most flight attendants of other airlines."
Pros: "friendliness of staff. special attention given to my 22 mo old granddaughter. adorable!"
Pros: "It is an African airline so I am doing my best to support it. I am grateful I was allocated to a hotel for my long layover"
Cons: "I had a long layover in Addis and the hotel I was allocated to could improve its service. I was expected to be served breakfast in the morning. My flight was at 820 am There could be some improvement on food"
Pros: "Flight crew was nice and responded to problems well. More trash pick up and water service would have been nice as it was a thirsty, long flight. I was given more water when asked it just wasn’t freely offered."
Cons: "The arrangement of the airport was disconcerting. To get to your gate you have to pass a another security point that you can not leave. The area was akin to a cattle yard. No bathroom, water, or amenities. You had to stay in your pen until boarding. Duty free was not allowed and had to be purchased on the plane for an additional cost. Not to mention the whole stopping in Dublin, Ireland for fuel without notice. There was nothing in my paperwork about it and we were only told to stay in our seats for the next hour or so while they refueled. We didn’t do that on the flight over was that was worrying and we were given no additional information."
Cons: "Transfer at Addis Ababa was horrendous - no help from ground staff and the airport was a confusing mess. The landing in cape town was very rough and jumpy."
Cons: "Food horrible. Poor infrequent service, cramped seating, poor movie selection"
Pros: "Brand New Aircraft"
Cons: "N/A"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything was bad, very upset !"
Pros: "Am very impressed with the service, and punctuality. The crew are friendly, helpful and respectful. I love the airline operating timeline of leaving Nigeria and getting to US same day. Also the fare is very reasonable. Advertise more, let people know u Pls enhance and expand ur Advertisment among nigerians. Am already spreading d good news among our friends and colleagues. Ethiopian Airline is d way to go"
Cons: "It took too long for d luggages to come out. Pls improve on it"
Pros: "the air craft was very good and the comfort is good no complain..."
Cons: "i did'n't like some of the cabin crew the way they are ....and am very disappointed from kinshasa to my check in i did ask a lady about my bag, she told me i will get my bag to cape straight, and i did ask her two times about the bag, she keep saying the same thing i will get my bag to cape town, so until now i haven't find my bag yet, the number they gave me from the airport no body pic up the phone, so i don't know what i can i do to get my bag......if you can hep me in this mater please contact me on my email or on my cell number 0027 78 470 6195. thank you your best regards."
Pros: "I like the entertainment,but the quality is not quite good in Amharic part."
Cons: "The food is very bad."
Cons: "Chairs were not reclining. Asked for blanket and didn't get one so I was cold."
Pros: "nice movie but that's all"
Cons: "chair and light broken. tasteless food. small screens"
Pros: "their business class was very good and a huge difference than economy, well done"
Cons: "the seat space is the smallest I have seen in economy. i took one sector economy and the other business. no blankets for guests"
Cons: "The entire flight was fully booked and plane full of people with bad hygiene whose smell was so offensive that I was nauseous. My friend and I were the only two Western people on the plane and forced to sit in the last row of the plane next to the toilets. Passengers were rude and pushed us during boarding, on the bus, and when leaving the plane. It was disgusting."
Pros: "WHY serve dinner at 12 midnight? The lights are kept on in the cabin making it difficult to sleep. Too little time to sleep and too much time taken up with bar and food service."
Cons: "NON arrival of luggage at Tel Aviv. See above"
Cons: "We were delayed for 30 minutes, then for one hour, then they announced a delay for 3 hours. They changed the gate twice and the staff was not communicating what is happening and when we are supposed to board. Also, they did not add my miles for my connecting flight."
Pros: "Excellent friendly service on both legs of journey. CC were easily the highlight. Meals in economy were mucccch better than in business class which is mind boggling. They've got to get this element right. My biz meals looked like it was just dumped on my plate pretty embarrassing. Onboard entertainment could also be improved ...."
Pros: "Comfortable. Crew excellent. On time. Efficient on boarding and landing - good information throughout"
Cons: "Addis Ababa airport very crowded with no seat available for five hour stopover. Food outlets limited"
Pros: "The flight attendants seemed a bit disorganized delivering the food and drinks"
Pros: "I did like the overall services. I was comfortable with the crew and was entertained. I enjoyed the night over in the fhoice of loudging with nazra Hotel."
Cons: "I didn't like the quality of food in the hotel panaroma on my return. The hotel needed air refreshner as it wae stuffy and difficult to breath in. The reception was excellent but poor service."
Pros: "Food and wine"
Cons: "Music"
Pros: "The crew was very nice, beer on the flight is always a nice touch , plenty of food and beverages. Nice collection of movies and music. Food is OK. We had a 10 Hour connection at Addis Ababba, and we were provided with a city tour at the first time, and hotel at the second. I liked the Injira :)"
Cons: "Overall, it's kinda depressing to fly with Ethiopian, the whole experience, from the colors of the uniforms, to the big African people, there was not enough room to seat next to other person, we and some people we met on the flight experienced the same thing. Addis Ababba was very not welcoming, we had a small tour at the city, the people are aggressive, we heard a lot of "farengie" all the time - "foreigners", everything was very expensive, because tourist have a lot of money... they are not afraid to touch you, even at the face. if somebody offers you guiding, they will ask for money later on and will take you to expensive places."
Cons: "Addis Airport is terribly organized and far too small for the volume of people they're pushing through it (which is probably the lead cause of the poor organization)."
Cons: "Very very old aeroplane"
Cons: "Ethiopian Airlines was very difficult trying to contact and reschedule our flight. Will never book with them again."
Cons: "They moved the flight forward 30 mins so that I only had 30 mins to switch planes at one of the biggest airports in Europe."
Pros: "Nice Crew"
Cons: "More space between seats, better air conditioning."
Cons: "crew and knowledge on parent control for video, kids safety jacket not distributed and no knowledge or help on connecting flights and no knowledge on car seat use in flight (i was told it was NOT safe to have the child in the car seat for take off and landing)"
Cons: "Boarding was terrible, took a couple hours with a huge line and shuttles. They lost my bag and I won't have it for a couple days (supposedly), seats were very uncomfortable, no vegetarian food option and crew shrugged when I asked. Plane was unbearably hot when we boarded."
Pros: "Direct route is the main benefit to flying condor, other than the that the airline offers below average customer service and amenities. Even my kids say Condor is the worst airline."
Cons: "No kids movies even for purchase is unacceptable for a 10 hour flight during the high season when families travel!"
Pros: "I was able to upgrade to business class at a reasonable rate. It was well worth it and the ticketing agent made it as easy as possible."
Cons: "There could have been someone at the gate sooner to answer questions or complete upgrade transactions."
Cons: "for a tall person the seat spacing is torture for a 10h flight. at the least offer affordable extra legroom. I'd be fine paying 10% more for 10% more space, but not hundreds of dollars"
Cons: "Air hostesses too hectic"
Pros: "The music selection."
Cons: "Seating is very tight even for a petite 5’1” person like me. My boyfriend was 5’8” and he was definitely uncomfortable with the lack of leg space. If the passengers in front of you decided to put their seats back? You’ve lost even more space and feel closed in. Thankfully the aisle seat next to us was empty so we tried to stretch out a little bit without spilling into the seat entirely. Entertainment was eh. Two movies from the early 2000s (Alvin & the Chipmunks and What happens in Vegas) and an episode of Tom & Jerry and an episode of Modern Family but from Season 5? Not great if you’ve never watched the series.. About their hospitality... My boyfriend and I were completely disregarded and ignored by a stewardess with blonde hair and thick black glasses... Flight: DE2102 that left September 8th from Frankfurt to San Juan. We received our meals from her AFTER she handed meals to the people behind us - this was not the case for other passengers that spoke German, everyone’s meals up until ours was handed in order.. When it was time to pick up the trays she skipped us both times (with our trays ready in our hands to hand to her) - I watched her pick up the trays from the passengers before and after us. My boyfriend did say “Excuse me” but she ignored him - she probably would’ve paid attention if he asked in German.. She even looked at us as she passed by which blew my mind. Her coworker on the other side had to pick up her slack and was very kind enough to pick up our trays even though we weren’t his assigned aisle. It confused me because she was so pleasant with the German passengers but ignored us even when we made eye contact and smile for her attention.. I hate to say this because I give everyone the benefit of the doubt but to be honest I felt discriminated.. My boyfriend is German (speaks fluent German and English) but I felt because of my ethnicity (Asian) he had to suffer for that.. I felt terrible that he was suffering because of me. No one wants that for their significant other or anyone. Another occasion was when another stewardess was handing us our drinks. My boyfriend’s cup was broken and as she passed it over me it spilled all over my shirt. I did gasp from surprise. No apologies whatsoever.. She seemed impatient and grabbed the cup back over only to put another cup under it. I asked for a Sprite but they only had Cola or Fanta so I was totally okay with Cola “Cola bitte”. My German isn’t that great but I did hear her coworker ask why I gasped and she told her that it was because I was surprised they didn’t have Sprite - very untrue. I was shocked and I couldn’t respond. I have never been so disappointed in a flight and the hospitality. I am very forgiving if an incident happens once or twice, but when I see it happen in front of me over and over and over again? That’s where my tolerance unfortunately crumbles. I was on the verge of tears by the end of the flight. I hope I never fly Condor again."
Pros: "We got there with no safety issues. That is about all the good I can think of. Also a miracle our bags made it since the delay due to Condor made us miss our connection. The best part of the flights were when we switched to Luftansa controlled planes."
Cons: "Don't confuse their logo with Luftansa. They are far from it. Known for delays, disruption and breakdowns. Our flight was delayed 4-5 hours on the way to Europe because the food cart didn't fit. Then a delay of 2 hours on way back to US because 3 of the 6 bathrooms didn't work. Had to wait in this prison like gate with hardly any AC and then take a bus to the plane. DO YOUR RESEARCH. This airline survives on those who don't do their homework(Like me) and those who don't take others reviews seriously. Spend the extra money and get an airline that is consistent. Check out Condor's on time rate..yikes."
Cons: "Flight was overbooked and we were not boarded. The personnel at the gate desk asked us to wait in the hallway outside the gate until further notification. When the plane was almost finished boarding, I went to the desk to find out whether we would get on. They admitted they had "forgotten about us". We then took the arduous trek through passport control back out to the main terminal to rebook. The only option we were presented was a flight the next day, instead of our 9h direct flight from Frankfurt to Seattle this was going to be a 19h flight via a long layover in Chicago. I tried hard to work with the agent to find another option, and asked for the supervisor. She told me "this isn't going to help you". Horrible horrible."
Cons: "An extra fee for in-flight entertainment on international flight? In route to Frankfurt we were told visa machine wasn’t working and if you didn’t have cash you were not able to watch any but the 2 free family movies offerrred. Seems to me if the visa machine is not working the passenger should be given free in-flight entertainment but then again I think that one should get free movies on an international flight. The food was poor and we were not seated together as a family Without cajoling the staff. There was no apology given for separating us. We were placed on standby on our return flight and we’re not told until five minutes before boarding that we were getting on the flight. I would never fly this airline again unless I had no other option. If you fly this airline pay extra for premium seating so you can get an assigned seat and get decent food and in-flight entertainment"
Pros: "The boarding process seemed difficult to go through. Waited 1 hr to check in baggage because 2 agents were all they had. We had two more screenings after this that almost seemed misunderstood by the Condir personnel."
Cons: "Condor seems to take every opportunity to retell the customer that you’re flying cheap. Inadequate staff, grumpy stewardesses, horrid food and the older very cramped seat style. By the time we added surcharges for seats and luggage, we were already in the regular fare range of Lufthansa. Which we regretted not taking to Germany. Beware."
Pros: "The price, the schedule, the convenience of the airports they use. Online Checkin is a breeze, and they seem to be very good at making sure that luggage arrives with passengers. Because we arrived at the airport VERY early (2:30 AM) for a 3:40 PM flight (Eurail scheduling vagaries required this), we checked our bags at 6AM (the earliest possible time) and worried that they had WAY too much time to screw it up, but they didn't, and even if they had, we were going home! Thy did provide a bottle of water for each seat, which was nice. After a late start, we made up some time and landed only a few minutes late."
Cons: "I know it's not entirely the airlines fault, but the boarding process for this flight was byzantine. first, the gate was in the 'basement' of the terminal and you had to show your boarding pass to get into the gate area and then you couldn't leave - and the bathroom was outside the gate area. Then we waited for 25 minutes in line to get on the bus to take us to our aircraft after the 'last call' for boarding announcement was made. When they finally put us on the bus, it was another 10 minutes standing still, packed in like sardines, until the bus actually moved anywhere. I have NO idea where the plane was, but we drove and drove, and drove around the airfield until we finally pulled up at our plane. They had two boarding ramps up, one in the front and one in the back, and just told us that low row number should board from the front and high numbers from the rear, but they didn't tell us what the demarcation was. With seats in row 31, it turned out we were over the wing, pretty much dead center, so it didn't matter. It would have been nice to have a frame of reference though. Aside from that, the food was EH!, the service courteous and efficient, but not friendly, the seats cramped, the no-extra-cost entertainment insipid (except for the audio portion - they provided a huge assortment of tracks by a wide variety of artists in many genres). With my (brought with me) earbuds, I gave up on any video except the flight map and just listened to classical recordings to drown out the screaming babies in the next row and provide a pleasant background for snoozing."
Pros: "Onboarding/offboarding were painless, and flight attendants were generally nice."
Cons: "I'm 6'6" and barely fit in the seats. I've learned to live with that, but it was frustrating that only 2 of the 7 front-row seats with extra legroom in the section were occupied before the flight, and a flight attendant chose a much shorter and not elderly passenger to fill a third seat in that row, leaving no alternative seating options for me and my wife to request. Most other airlines notice my size/discomfort right away and offer to work with me, especially on transatlantic flights. Food and entertainment had limited options and were nothing to get excited about, but you get what you pay for."
Pros: "Knowing they were going to miss my connection, they accepted the booking anyway, out of pure greed and complete disregard for my wellbeing. When I missed my connection in FRA they rebooked me on FRA-YVR-YYZ. That’s a day in a hotel then flying half way around the world to save them a buck. Terrible airline and I’ll never fly them again."
Cons: "Poor legroom, seat did not recline. And why make ne pay 8 euros for movies?"
Pros: "The flight crew was great, and the aircraft was very nice and clean."
Cons: "I showed up to the airport 2+ hours early, I tried to check in online, was given a error the said my reservation didn’t exist. When I arrived at the airport I went to the check in counter, when I told them I was checking for a flight to Seattle, i was told that I couldn’t check in because there was a issue with my flight. I was directed to a corner of the terminal. This corner had no chairs or seats for us, we sat there for 2+ hours all the way up to the time our flight was intended to depart. All the while we tried to get information or what was the issue, but we were just stonewalled. Finally past our boarding time were were told the flight was being canceled, and to standby for more information. Another half an hour went by before they told us they were getting us a hotel, and buses to the hotel. So then we waited another 15 minutes or so when they asked us if we had checked in because we needed a ticked to get a room at the hotel. Again we waited in line for 20+ minutes to check in. I had 2 bags to check, one I need at the hotel, the other I did not. They let me check the one bag I could, told me to check the other at the business class check in in the morning to avoid the line, sounds good, or so I thought. So condor gathers us all up, an entire 767 worth of people, and begins hearding us to the buses, they don’t tell us where we’re going, just to follow the one employee, to the 5 or so buses. A large group of us got split off at a set stairs, helping older folks and family with strollers get down the stairs. Now I spent 30 minutes wandering around Frankfurt am main looking for buses. Well they don’t park them out front, they park them out in the middle of nowhere. Finally get to get hotel, it’s a nice hotel. The next morning the lady at the business class desk was extremely rude."
Pros: "The online entertainment has a nice variety of interesting shows, including documentaries. My seat was comfortable with good leg room, but only because I got lucky when I asked for an exit row seat while checking in. The regular economy seats are extremely narrow and uncomfortable with almost no leg room (and I am only average in heigh). Taller people sitting in regular aisle seats are hanging their legs out into the aisle throughout the flight because they have to for any kind of reasonable comfort."
Cons: "Somehow the airline should tell passengers that they are going to have to go through a(mother) strict security process before getting on the plane in Frankfurt to the U.S. We all stood in line for close to an hour in a very hot area of the airport to go through full-on security - water gets thrown out, shoes off, laptops out - the whole works, again. I had already gone through this kind of security in Vienna for the Vienna-Frankfurt leg of my trip. I had no idea this was going to be required and had planned to use my time in Frankfurt to relax and get something to eat. Instead it was spent standing in a surprise security line that moved extremely slowly. Not a fun way to spend the time before getting on an 11-hour flight. If they are going to require that security they should have many more lines available so that it moves at a reasonable pace."
Pros: "Just another average flight. Entertainment system worked. Friendly crew."
Cons: "There is no way to get comfortable in those seats when you are 1,90m 6ft3 Charge to watch movies. Some of them pretty racy especially if you have little kids close to you"
Cons: "Economy movies only two options, that's great but one option was "Part One" of a Harry Potter movie. Should of at least had Part Two available or not shown part one...just a thought."
Pros: "This flight was a little more challenging. The flight was delayed by 3 hours. I do appreciate thought that the Condor airline made the necessary arrangements to ensure their passengers can make the connection to their final destination even though we landed past the time we were to make our next connection. They too care of making sure to secure another flight for the passengers who missed their first connection. Great job. I made it back home the same day."
Cons: "N/A"
Pros: "The pilot. The flight was pleasant"
Cons: "Terrible service"
Pros: "Premium economy is far better than economy - economy has far less leg room, and as I'm 5'11" that made a big difference. It also provides you with more movie options (15 v. 2). All in all it was a good flight."
Cons: "The food, even the upgraded version in premium economy, is not good. Also, for boarding, everyone really boarded at once and you had to go through additional security to get to the gate so you were basically stuck in a waiting room until your flight left with only vending machines (but there were bathrooms so that was good!)."
Pros: "Was more comfortable then I expected. Some of the crew was really friendly, while some were not."
Cons: "One crew member filled the drinks about halfway out of our 100ml cups on a 11 hour flight and the plane was insanely dry on the flight. No idea why they'd skimp on water for passengers."
Pros: "Good service"
Cons: "Seats are very small and uncomfortable"
Cons: "Only 2 security check point gates, one for priority, one for economy class. Seat size is small, leg room is tight. Only 4 toilets for economy class."
Pros: "This is a new service out of New Orleans which I found very convenient and efficient. Smooth flight and good, attentive crew."
Cons: "Communication regarding reservations and follow-up check-in was not very easy. Also at the airport when I stopped and asked a Condor employee for directions to locate my connecting flight, her initial response was curt --that she could not help me as she was in the process of boarding passengers -- although there was no one but her there. She then directed me elsewhere."
Pros: "I like that it was a direct flight and inexpensive."
Cons: "We left one hour late. The lines were very long. Not enough agents. This happened both ways. The seat from Austin to Frankfurt was tight and very uncomfortable. I had paid 49 euros for it. So, on my return flight I upgraded to a 99 euro seat, thinking I'd just be charged the difference. No. I over-paid 150 euros for an exit door seat. The weight limit for a carry-on bag was lighter than for other airlines, so I had to check it in and overpay for that. One of my glass souvenirs was broken."
Pros: "Bypassing Athens was great but the very very early, extremely early departure was not good."
Cons: "Low cost and not going through Athens. Also we flew condor from Seattle. We should have been able to check our bags all the way through to Samos"
Pros: "I don't speak English (my granddaughter is helping me with this survey), and the crew was more than helpful in helping me all the way from Frankfurt to MSP."
Cons: "There was nothing I didn't like."
Pros: "The crew were very attentive and between them and the great food the flight was bearable."
Cons: "Walked from the lounge to the gate when instructed only to spend an hour or more waiting for what seemed ever passenger being called to the desk for something. Boarded to find my selected seats had been given to a large family and that the seats themselves were absolutely terrible in design. they were narrow and had a console that interfered with comfort. the leg-rest could not be extended enough for even an average height person to use the fold down metal foot rest, which therefore was what my calves sat on. This all amounted to ten hours of pain. Condor is not likely to get our business again."
Pros: "The crew was attentive and responsive. The exit row had adequate leg room for me because I am tall. Food was not bad."
Cons: "These are the following issues I had leaving Frankfurt: 1. They assigned me a different seat, even though I paid 99 euro to book a specific exit row seat. When I asked an employee at the airport, she told me I can contact Condor for a refund and gave no explanation as to the issue. I ended up showing a flight attendant my proof of purchase and my boarding pass with the exit row seat assignment and he was able to switch my seat. The person who was assigned my seat never paid for it, so he was willing to switch. I find this unacceptable. 2. The boarding process was a nightmare in Frankfurt. While I understand there was enhanced security due to the terrorism in Barcelona, it could have been handled far more efficiently. For instance, because I transferred airports from Barcelona, I needed to go through passport control twice and go through security again before boarding. The problem arose where there were two different lines to process the passports the 2nd time from Condor and when that was complete, to go through security. It was a large waste of time. 3. The flight was full to Austin. As a result, I was required to check my larger carry-on bag. They tried to charge me 75 euro for the second checked bag even though they were forcing me to check it on. Absolutely unacceptable. 4. They charge 8 euro for every movie and tv show available except two movies: Garfield and the last Harry Potter movies and 2 episodes of two tv shows. For an 11 hour flight, this was incredibly disappointing. The movies available were a mix of older and new. There should still be some unpaid entertainment options available in Coach. That's ridiculous."
Pros: "Great price for the flight, very nice plane with excellent service and amenities. You have to pay for many extras (Picking your seat, access to movies), but you can pay for ALL these things and still pay less than a typical flight, not to mention that the basic meals and check bag are included in the price tag."
Cons: "Our first leg of the trip was canceled by CONDOR. We had to frantically get help from a general ticket counter for our flight from Rome to Frankfurt. It was an epic ending to a horrible flight experience. Because our flight to Rome was beyond awful, we asked for a free seat upgrade and were told that they are unable to do that. They have zero customer service and don't seem to care about the customers at all."
Pros: "!!!!!!!!"
Cons: "Ok...... I was the only Black person on this flight!!! So between the guest that thought I was not supposed to put my seat back because that made his 12yr old behind uncomfortable to the flight attendant that thought I should keep my knees smashed into the seat in front of me it was very uncomfortable for 11 hours!!! So the boy behind me played kick my seat for 3 hours while his mother who sat across from me found it funny!! Considering I am a black woman and the only black person on this flight I did not want to end up dead or brutally injured if I spoke up to the flight attendant again about this young boys behavior!!! I have flown Condor several times and usually enjoy flying with condor/ Thomas Cook!! But this was one of the worse flights yet!!"
Pros: "Great value for money. I paid extra fee for premium entertainment, but it was pretty cheap and still a lot less than what I would have paid on other airlines for the trip. The service was excellent, the food was very good. I would recommend this airline to anyone. I paid for the premium food on the way back. It was excellent, although the regular food was not bad."
Cons: "The flight was delayed for about an hour, however it was not any stress and the airline kept us informed at all times."
Pros: "Crew were very kind and hospitable. The aircraft was comfortable. There were a good number of restrooms that were easily accessible."
Cons: "The food was not good. I was not given any options in meal choice. That was a bit of a problem as I have lactose issues, so I did not eat much. The entertainment was rather disappointing. The economy/free selection consisted of only two movies that are better for children and teens (Garfield and Harry Potter). All other selections required a purchase of 8 euro. I have flown internationally on several occasions, and this is the first time I have been compelled to pay for entertainment. It seems that for the price and length of such flights more economy options could be given, even if they are older movies."
Pros: "Long line through customs , which caused delays to boarding overall was nothing different during the process of the whole trans action of flight 2082."
Pros: "Everyone was lovely and helpful. The food was good and that light fluffy cake was delicious."
Pros: "The food was super! Seats were very comfortable with ample leg room, and I could hardly keep my eyes open throughout the flight. The crew was also attentive."
Cons: "Just that the only entertainment was a limited number of music radio channels with country and old school music. I mean no TV for premium economy?! Lufthansa's basic economy has got a TV and WiFi for long distance travels!"
Pros: "- Nice and attentive crew - Interior appeared clean and updated - Bottle of water given with each seat - 2 meals"
Cons: "- Inefficient boarding procedure. I cant tell if this is Lufthansa's or the airport's issue, but when you arrive to your gate, you then have to proceed with the security checkpoint which took forever. Then you're basically stuck in a smaller area until boarding. - While every seat had a TV screen, they only provided 2 movies to choose from (Harry Potter or Garfield) unless you were willing to pay extra for their whole movie collection. It was kind of a shame finding that out since most other airlines that I've been on provide the full set of movies for no additional cost."
Pros: "the crew was great,, did all they could do to make a long flight enjoyable"
Cons: "the gate for condor was in an isolated area of the airport, no restaurants, no shopping, inadequate restrooms and them stuck in a room with 2 vending machines for hours when flight was delayed"
Pros: "The staff was accommodating when things went wrong"
Cons: "The seats are very small especially when people recline. The need to request special meals for allergies ahead of time was not clear and there are very few snacks of any substance to purchase. The check in process and security process at Frankfurt are one of the least efficient I've ever seen."
Pros: "Flight time was shortened by 1.5 hrs!"
Cons: "Distance between seats was short and my knees touched the seat in front"
Pros: "Entertainment was good and the flight was very smooth."
Cons: "Crew was very unorganized. Did not come to give food until an hour before we landed and we're rushing to pick up all the trays as we were landing. No vegetarian options even though I saw gluten free options the crew member would give me one even though I saw dozens on his trolly before he went back to retire that trolly and get the main meal. The young male crew member didn't know what he was doing and cause tension between the other crew members. Not a comfortable experience and the worst food I've had on a plane."
Pros: "The seats were surprisingly comfortable. The staff was pleasant."
Cons: "The food was 80's style pasta and everyone got the same. The entertainment system, even if you pay, is lacking in decent content."
Pros: "Very roomy"
Cons: "No wifi. Seats were very uncomfortable."
Pros: "Water was free. And 2 meals - no, based on portion size, I guess those were snacks. Everything else cost extra."
Cons: "Tightest passenger seating I have experienced in over 60 years of flying and the MOST UNCOMFORTABLE seat. I am just 6' and my knees pressed agsinst the seatback in the upright position. Firmly. First time ever I couldn't sleep. Accoustics meant the talking of a passenger across the aisle and against the window sounded like he was in my lap! HORRIBLE design. A ceiling panel came loose and swung down in flight (lights attached). Nobody knew how to fix it so the entire wait crew just stood and stared at it for 10 minutes until one woman swung it back into place. AWFUL training."
Pros: "Chose this flight for the price. Service on board was good. Friendly crew. Food was good and the beverage cart came by several times. I would only choose this airline again if my budget required it."
Cons: "While in Germany, I broke my leg, was in a cast, and required a wheelchair for mobility. The airport staff was not well organized to deal with people with mobility issues. After waiting for 25 minutes for someone to assist us to the gate, we decided we'd better just get there ourselves. The plane was already boarding when we made it there and an agent told us to just get in the back of the line. When we were half way through the queue another agent asked us why we were in the queue and at that time brought us to the head of the line boarding. The seats are tilted forward to make more room and it feels like you are sitting down slope...not enjoyable on a long flight. All the other flights, my wheelchair was waiting and my husband could take care of me. In Seattle, my wheelchair had been sent to baggage and we had to have an employee wheel me for liability reasons. He had two wheelchairs he was trying to maneuver, so we had to sit and wait several times while he was getting the other person to their destination. We were concerned about making our connecting flight."
