Cons: "I found it difficult to navigate the screen on the airline. Everything else was fine and I am happy with the airline."
Cons: "They ran out of the selection for breakfast. The flight also departed late."
Cons: "The plane is great but the young gentlemen next to me is 300lb+(my best guest He's at least 6'2" possibly in his teen or early 20s) Don't get me wrong but to sit in coach for 14 hours with him in the middle seat is kind of a nightmare. Half of the way we all went to a bathroom and I don't blame him but the bathroom must be to small to clean up himself for I have to sit with feces smell for the rest of the flight. Imagine that. This is my second leg of this long flight from BKK to NYC. The first leg to dubai is horrible enough but this one top that by far!!!!"
Pros: "Delayed by 3 hours!!"
Pros: "Good leg room"
Cons: "For an 8 hour flight - we were given a sandwich and breakfast. Expected to be served dinner and breakfast given the time."

Pros: "Crew was friendly, food was good and entertainment great. Space between front row seats in economy class was good."
Cons: "all good."
Pros: "The flight from Johannesburg to Dubai on an Airbus A380 was the best , the return was on the 777ER it's a bit older avoid it if you can, I prefer the a380 it's roomy, more comfortable and modern, the food was good, the cabin crew very helpful and friendly and both flights were on time. I'll be flying only Emirates from now on"
Cons: "Just the coffee was terrible lol,"
Pros: "Was upgraded to 1st class which was amazing - the only thing I didn't like was it was a night flight and not long enough to enjoy it for longer!"
Pros: "E v e r y t h i n g ..... I understand now why they are the number ONE airlines in service. We travel enough to see the BIG difference. Thumbs up. Please don't change !!!!"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Service was wonderful people very kind enjoying them on the flight was quite beautiful soft and nice wish you good luck ."
Pros: "Good entertainment"
Cons: "Stawardess took too long to collect trays after we had eaten.at least two hours."
Pros: "The inflight movie selection and entertainment was very good."
Cons: "The food was a bit disappointing."
Cons: "The staff was extremely rude and mean. They skipped me for food and had overall poor behavior. Worst international flight I've ever been on"
Pros: "On our onward flight from Orlando to Dubai, the crew made sure the flight was always clean (specially the toilets - they really cleaned them up every 30 mins) Not so much on the same flight returning from Dubai to Orlando - toilets get wet and messy after about 5 hours and were never cleaned after."
Cons: "Overall, food and service were ok. I really didn't think Emirates did anything different in Econony class compared to other airlines (Air India)"
Pros: "They still catch my attention, and while traveling with them I continue to enjoy this airline."
Cons: "As per my Oslo - Dubai review (read there for more details), they cancelled my flight, put me on a flight a day later, and then left me with the bill and the inconvenience. This was the connector out of Dubai and back to Johannesburg. I've flown with them many times and I've picked up one or two small cut backs they've made like no hot towel when you get onboard, only before your arrival, and the meal seems a little more slimmed down (but still pretty tasty), They used have one or two extras which they've now taken away. Not sure why?"
Cons: "Rude and racist cabin crew!"
Pros: "The crew member was excellent,she went all out to make my journey easy and comfortable.I have sent an email to her superior,please use her as an example.if all attendants can serve and see to passengers like her will be beneficial for emirates"
Pros: "Friendly staff awesome planes wonderful experince"
Cons: "Service was a bit slow. Drinks and food took quite sometime to arrive."
Cons: "Too long layover"
Pros: "It was a smooth flight"
Cons: "It was ok"
Pros: "The food was delicious, and I received the special meal I had requested with no problem. Again, great selection of TV shows and movies."
Cons: "The crew seemed a bit put off, just not very friendly. Maybe something had happened that put them all in a bad mood I'm not sure. Despite this they did help people without complaint, but you could tell they didn't want to be there. Again on this flight the TVs were an old model that was difficult to use, you had to push really hard and finagle your finger to get it to read what you were pressing."
Pros: "Very friendly and helpful crew; comfortable within the limits of economy class!"
Pros: "Excellent service"
Pros: "Your airline is always striving to be ahead of the game. You are ON TIME, friendly and efficient. If you fly where I need to go I will fly Emirats!!!"
Pros: "Granted I was tired after being in transit for 24 hours, but this final of 4 long-haul flights was a real bummer compared to the other flights. Boeing 777 packed to 100% capacity."
Cons: "Really cramped and squished compared to other flights. Toilets at DXB were filthy (I searched around for the cleanest, which was still disgusting), with the cleaning attendant standing around in the restroom doing nothing. Duty Free shops really expensive compared to European airports. Meal on board (breakfast) was really terrible (and that taking into account that airline breakfast is always bad), really the worst I've ever had on a plane, even the Croissant was chewy and very dry. Emirates has become a massive sausage machine people-mover. It has loss its finesse and exceptional service."
Cons: "Great movie selection and food."
Pros: "The staff were wonderful and efficient. The toilets were clean and the food was much better than my first flight with emirates although the portions were small on the main meal with only four spinach ravioli offered in a tomato sauce."
Cons: "Passengers do not fit on to their seats and overflow into the space you are occupying which is so tiny as it is. There is not enough room to even reach down to pick something up if you drop it. Overhead lockers are full. I think planes either need to be redesigned with sleeping compartments (such as the second class compartments the trains have) for overnight flights or seats need to be slightly larger to make up for the fact most people are larger today."
Cons: "THe Hostess was not attentive and had to ask for things a few times. No goody basket was given although some pax did get it."
Cons: "When we landed we had to take the bus"

The check in process was long and could have been faster if more staff was available. The line of passengers was too long and there was no one to guide the line. The boarding process was a bit better. Although several announcements were made regarding mask wearing, it was not fully enforced on the flight. This left me feeling unsafe considering the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic and flu season.

Ok

Pros: "The crew was amazing. Food was great. Clean bathrooms. Great entertainment."
Cons: "We had our passports and boarding passes checked five times in the course of 2 minutes by five different people one after the next. My cabin luggage was searched right before boarding. I appreciate the need for security, but that was excessive and unnecessary. In the peak of the Corona virus craze, the security made all passengers take off shoes and walk without any protection. This is not Qatar Airways doing - New York JFK security B S, but I am sure airways companies have some say to change it."
Pros: "Yes, Crew was amazing and timing was perfect."
Cons: "Excellent performance"
Pros: "I like the service in the flight"
Cons: "Connection to other airlines and at different terminals with taking luggage around was horrible with all flights cancellations"

Cons: "On the A350, the seat doesn't recline much. It was quite uncomfortable."
Pros: "Crew"
Cons: "Food"
Pros: "Yes"
Cons: "No"
Cons: "At Mumbai airport, during check-in I was told that my carry on bag plus personal item together should weigh not more than 7kgs!! I have never had any airline actually weigh my personal item (laptop backpack) before this journey. Eventually I ended up stuffing my check-in bags with everything I was carrying in my carry on bag before I was allowed to check in. The weird thing is, I was never told about this rule on my journey from the US to India."
Pros: "Service and entertainment."
Cons: "Food."
Cons: "Crew members are waking up for lunch and breakfast but not for snacks and other beverages. We are feeling hungry later. we aren't knowing when they ll provide."

Cons: "not so much."
Cons: "The plane was delayed at the start but that's was ok you need a safe plane but we missed the next flight. You don't flight to Cuba so missed all the next day flight to Cuba but you lost all four bags and not helping to get them back so missed the rebooked flights again, so stall waiting someone to find them."

Pros: "The plane was very new and wasn’t crowded."
Cons: "The arrival time was slightly delayed but overall it was okay. The hot food again can be improved as the chicken dish had no vegetables (even though there was a side salad dish). The waiting lounge at Doha airport gate was a bit cramped, and the bus ride from the gate to the aircraft was also a bit long."
Pros: "Attention to detail. Very professional."
Pros: "Jain meal was quite uninteresting Flight was too packed Cabin air stale and dry"
Pros: "crew was excellent, very attentive"
Cons: "food - i am not a fussy eater but it's as if qatar tries do please too many tastes and does not suceed at any. why not have middle eastern food choices too? but then i guess you can't argue with the price"

Pros: "Nothing. As flight was rerouted and airline changed"
Cons: "We didn't like the fact that our flight changed to a diff airline when we paid to fly with Qatar"
Pros: "Crew were supportive because pain in my heel and they ran out of food selection even though front of plane. Thanks especially to supervisor Jane."
Cons: "Need to provide further quantity of non veg selection even though front of plane. Plus the taste of all food were Unsatisfactory and could not finish that was starving at end of flight. Recommend hire international famous gourmet chief. Removing casing of my tablet for Qatar security airlines into usa was painful that broke 6 finger nails. Need to warn on the website or ticket security requires remove casing at Doha to usa. Had no issue from USA TO Doha which requires no removal of hard cover casing."

Cons: "Plane wasnt clean enough specially toilet."
Pros: "the attention in general for me was excellent."

Pros: "Comfort of the seat/bed"
Pros: "The airline stewardesses were Fabulous! Especially one from Doha to Cape Town. Food was good and more than enough to eat. I was impressed by the scheduled meals and drink offers , very important for a dietetic"
Cons: "No leg room, can't stretch your legs properly so my bad knee was in pain"
Cons: "I did not like the fact that on now 3 flights I have lost miles, as on every flight I have tried to sign on as a member or frequent flyer and on all flights, there were no entry forms. This is also after my attempt to complete one on line, which I have had no response to."

Cons: "Lack of movies"

Pros: "This flight had one of the best selections of movies I've seen on a flight.....a damn good thing given the 15-hr duration of the flight. I had so many screaming babies around me that the flight attendants helped me to move to another part of the plane. They were incredibly sympathetic and accommodating. Airlines from the USA could learn a thing or two from Qatar Airlines."

Pros: "Crew is polite and professional."

Pros: "I was really please by the prices and the amount of food we got"

Cons: "small seats"
Pros: "The crew on the plane was kind, accommodating, and polite."
Pros: "the food is good - staff are generally friendly but not great with English if you have a problem"
Cons: "Why does Turkish Air boarding always have to be so chaotic - pushing and shoving, etc. Why cant TK control their business class space - people from economy always coming up for bathrooms when there are plenty in the back....."
Cons: "Food was dried out and tasteless"
Pros: "Food from Cape Town to Istanbul was very tasty and juicy. Yummy."
Cons: "Homeland has made flying into the us miserable. The checking of cameras is ridiculous. If they work we should not have to check them. Then when we landed the nastiest people are in the us Turkish check in was painful and makes one consider not flying"
Pros: "As above"
Cons: "As above"
Pros: "I used the prime lounge in Istanbul and when it was time to go, I was able to practically walk on the plane without any wait. The seats were comfy and didn't have a ton of legroom but it wasn't bad. The staff we're friendly and helpful. The in-flight entertainment had a pretty impressive selection and had one of the best-designed interfaces I've seen so far (and I've ridden a variety of airlines). Last and most important, the food was hands down the BEST I've had on a plane. Turkish is killing it, they're my new go-to airline!"
Cons: "I really can't complain about anything, even if I try! Maybe the touch screen sensitivity on the entertainment console seemed a little off, but that's just nitpicking"
Pros: "Operativity, cleaning, food,"
Pros: "NOTHING"
Cons: "Absolute chaotic experience. Seized all electronic equipment which I anticipated ahead of time and left my iPad home - but they took my camera - which is NOT on the list or a digital device. They had ONE person handling what had to be well over a thousand iPads and laptops. Flight left hours late. NO legroom, Food was horrible and inedible. The entertainment system draped out and locked up 4 hours into a ten hour flight. The WORST flight experience I have had in a very long tie and I have flown all over the world. Will NEVER fly Turkish Air again. STAY AWAY from this airline."
Cons: "EVerything about this airline."
Cons: "They moved the time up without prior notice. I could have lost the flight. They checked my bag in Antalya via Istanbul to Naples. When arrived in Naples no luggage. After long wait was told it is held in security in Istanbul. They should have not boarded me if they had problem with the luggage or at least they should have told me in Istanbul not after arriving at destination and have to search for an answer. Extremely poor airline and will never fly with them again."
Pros: "Overall everything was good"
Pros: "As usual on Turkish Airlines, the crew was very friendly and helpful."
Cons: "The entertainment system on the plane was not working. They woke people up to give us dinner at 1:00 am (Almaty time) and again for breakfast more than 2 hours before the flight ended. Let people sleep!!"
Pros: "Everything on the plane was great."
Cons: "The boarding area at the airport was overly crowded and hectic. It was really difficult to move around with two kids and a few bags."
Pros: "I loved the bendable headrests. Olives and cheeses are different airplane food and really nice. Plentiful blankets and pillows."
Cons: "They didn't have any child-sized headphones available for my daughter."
Cons: "Leg space a nighrmare!! Was uncomfortable for all the 13 hrs of the flight. Terrible experience"
Pros: "It was a 12 or 13 hour flight and except for sitting too much we were never uncomfortable. The service level made me think we were back in the 80's. Hot towels, attentive service, tons of food and free drinks. There was actually one meal that we would have eaten even if it wasn't on a plane. They gave out full size blankets and pretty fluffy pillows. (I bring our own anymore, because you never know if you will get one on most airlines, and if you do they're usually useless). Their entertainment system was amazing. We caught up on all the recently released movies that we've wanted to see for FREE! If only Netflix had this quality of movie offerings. They had fresh flowers in the huge bathrooms. It's that type of attention to detail you just really don't see anymore."
Cons: "Can't think of a thing that could actually be changed."
Pros: "Service when it was done"
Cons: "Infrequent service Crowded Entertainment system bad"
Pros: "I liked the crew"
Cons: "The security at the Turkish airport. There were very long lines, people pushing each other, screaming. Security put some extra stamps for particular people randomly. There were three women from the same country with the same type of passport who one of them happened to be pregnant. They put extra stamp on her passport. When I asked one of the security why her he said it was random and it was American procedure. The woman started screaming after she was checked twice more and they started to use a detector on her belly. It was all crazy when another family was checked and the security decided that the three kids were okay but the parents weren't. The security told the parents to separate themselves from the kids for double checking. The father started screaming as well. It was all horrible."
Pros: "came home with 2 broken bags, hard to talk to anybody, emailing back and forth since then to replace them, so far offered much cheaper bags and om top of this, a lot of paper work needed to claim those 2 cheaper replacement !!!"
Cons: "very tight seats for 12+ hours across Atlantic flight, old planes, somewhat unfriendly attendants."
Pros: "Good in general"
Cons: "Delayed flights"
Pros: "The service is amazing Food is great"
Cons: "Boarding was interesting"
Pros: "All"
Pros: "basically the entertainment was the only positive part of the experience and the mac and cheese was ok"
Cons: "The airline apparently switched us to an earlier flight however we had received NOT A SINGLE email telling us that our flight had been moved. We had continued to receive emails for our original flight which still existed. Have no idea why they would move us in the first place and not tell us. We had to go through the hassle of getting switched back to our earlier flight which took an additional hour of dealing with people. This mimics our experience flying from Dalaman to Istanbul when our flight was canceled and we received no notification. They told us it was too early to receive a notification (we were there 12 hours in advance). However, had we arrived within the suggested window and found out it was canceled we never would have been able to reschedule to a connecting flight that still got us to Madrid in time.When checking our bags, the clerk tried to tell us that a backpack and small purse were too big to count as personal items even though they had been fine on ALL of our previous flights. I pointed out that individuals in other lines had larger backpacks that were being counted and he finally acquiesced but with a lot of attitude. The plane was then an hour late. The sign for boarding continued to tell us it was on time up until 45 minutes AFTER we were supposed to have boarded when it finally updated and said 'delayed'. The crew stood around laughing and providing zero updates as we all worried about whether or not we would make our connecting flights. TERRIBLE EXPERIENCE OVERALL"
Pros: "sevice, personnel"
Cons: "food"
Cons: "Bathroom very dirty with odors!"
Cons: "Did not have as the flight to istanbul was cancelled and moved to alitalia"
Pros: "The flight was overcrowded, seats were crowded, horrible service, no options for entertainment, meals were ok and then we had to remove luggage and use stairs to get to our connecting flight, it was a horrible experience."
Cons: "service, food, flight seats"
Pros: "The crew at the Tokyo airport was very attentive and friendly."
Cons: "I was not allowed to checkin online.I called they said they assigned my chosen seats, I got to the airport and nothing was assigned. I wrote a formal complaint, all I received was "I am very sorry". And this happened on all 4 flights: Basel to Istanbul, Istanbul to Osaka, Tokyo to Istanbul and Istanbul to Basel. Just one of the worst experiences ever. The crew on the flight from Tokyo to Istanbul, also very rude and cold. The food was really bad, the egg was terrible!"
Cons: "canceling our flights and lying to us on the phone after we pay extra for daytime flights"

Lufthansa‘s Crew was exceptionally polite, helpful, quietly serving food and performing tasks placed on them. I appreciate their professional attitude . I loved getting a pillow and a blanket, which had at other airlines been a problem. Food was served quickly, as well as drinks. Thank you for all the work you do!

Cons: "More space on economy for long flights."
Pros: "Everything went as expected, very smooth"
Cons: "Lower fare !!"
Pros: "Our flight from Hamburg to Munich arrived late. Lufthansa met about 10 of us at our arrival gate, took us through a side channel Passport Control and then mini-bused us to our gate. We arrived at the gate 15 minutes after scheduled departure but our plane was there. Very considerate."
Pros: "Comfort crew"
Cons: "The flight was delayedgoo"
Pros: "Yes, seat good."
Cons: "There were delays and not good food. No veggie option."
Pros: "The problem was with the booking, cancelled flights- under stable- but nobody willing to make it right. Flights still screwed up"
Cons: "Give some customer service to your paying customers. Don't make a bad situation worse. Practice a can do attitude. Very disappointed in customer service. Not the flight itself."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Hamburg to Frankfurt flight delayed did not flight to losnageles rerouted me to Toronto 8 hours extra awe full"
Pros: "Above expectation"
Pros: "On board crew was friendly and helpful"
Cons: "Muslim meal does not mean all Muslims eat curry. It’s rediculous that we cant have a decent English breakfast instead you get curry or some form of curry for breakfast, lunch and supper. Your so called Muslim meals are not suitable for kids!! There is no such thing as a Muslim meal either. It’s simply called Halal otherwise then everyone else’s meals should be called Christian or Jewish meals etc. Also I requested help with transfer to my last flight which was horrendous because I’m one adult with 4 kids ages 1 to 11 and my eldest has sever learning disability. I nearly missed my flight because our flight landed late and I was struggling to keep my kids safe and together while running for the next flight. Somone should have been there to help with transfer."
Pros: "Loved the flight. Definitely better than Swiss which is what we flew in."
Cons: "Shortness of the staff at the counter when checking in. We couldn’t preprint our boarding passes and the staff was inconsiderate when we tried to explain why"
Pros: "Entertainment"
Cons: "Flight Hamburg to Frankfurt: our children were sitting separately"
Pros: "First time on Lufthansa. Service was friendly and airplane food was surprising good."
Pros: "Even for such a short flight you still get a small snack and drink."
Pros: "Bag drop in Hamburg for flight to Frankfurt and then connecting to San Francisco was the quickest I have ever experienced. I think the check in app captures all the info needed so well that when you drop your bag, my passport was checked and that was it. Done in 3 minutes. Flight is only 80 minutes and drink and snack offered."
Cons: "No issues"
Pros: "Price"
Cons: "Flight attendants were not responding to calls. Didn’t get coke cola, they ran out! Incredible to run out of soft drink. Thank God one of the gentlemen was able to “borrow” from business class . I always fly Lufthansa but after this I may have to re-evaluate. The check in kiosk line in Hamburg was Long!!!!"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "We missed the conection flight....."
Cons: "flight was 35min late - causing me to rush to make the connecting flight at MUC"
Cons: "First, Lufthansa lost our baggage from Hamburg to Los Angeles. Then, the delivery company (Direct Courier Services) Lufthansa uses was completely inept and unprofessional - every single one of their employees is a complete moron. We didn't end up getting our baggage for two and half days so we were wearing the same clothes that we left Germany with. Then, after being told by Lufthansa customer service to submit receipts for clothes we had to buy, never got reimbursed or even the courtesy of a reply. After flying Lufthansa for over a decade, will never use this airline again. Epic fail."
Pros: "Clean aircraft, very friendly crew, good food, overall great trip."
Pros: "Airplane was clean and comfortable for economy class."
Cons: "Because I felt sick I would probably prefer to pay a little more and upgrade to a better seat if the option was available."
Pros: "Quick boarding and arrived early."
Pros: "Firstly, the food was great!"
Pros: "Short and comfortable flight"
Pros: "Crew is very nice"
Cons: "Overcrowded and late flight"
Cons: "Hamburg airport not prepared for winter weather. Delayed over 2 hours due to de-icing staff not ready. Airport did not see light snow on radar? Missed connecting flight. Lufthansa put us in hotel 45mins away from airport with no luggage. Switched us to a united flight and not together."
Pros: "great flight attendants, decent food, on-time arrival. all good."
Pros: "Food and entertainment"
Cons: "Seats were too tight and close together,I think for long flights the leg room should be more even in economy class."
Pros: "It's an hour so not much can go wrong I guess."
Cons: "Nothing. No issues with the flight"
Pros: "I was upgraded after all the pressure from thehurrricane this was the icing on the cake"
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Entertainment system wasn't working. 11 hour flight. Boring. No seat change available. No reading light, as light controlled by entertainment system. Seats in front of toilet cluster lit up every time door was opened. Crew were slow to react. Wasn't a priority. Ruined the excellent first leg of had from Philadelphia to Frankfurt. Do they run inferior planes to South Africa compared to USA?"
Pros: "Professional, friendly, helpful staff, especially the Manager at Gates A17 and A18 who helped make sure I got a seat on LH011 after two other, earlier choices I had been put on were cancelled."
Cons: "Lufthansa must work on its domestic-to-international hub feeder system, which is unpredictable. E-mails were sent too late to be useful for knowing what was happening to the original LH009, then LH007 flights, both of which were ultimately cancelled, making the connection to LH400 dicey for the FRA to JFK leg of the trip. Telephone or SMS should have been used for faster contact. I had already printed boarding passes for LH009 about 20 hours before flight time and ultimately arrived at HAM two hours before flight time and thought everything was in order. It ultimately was not, and my checked baggage never made it onto the connecting flight."
Pros: "the seats are comfortable, food is good and service is better than most"
Cons: "That it took a while to get on plane because of security but thats how it goes"
Pros: "The services provided by United were good, although we were delayed due to mechanical issues. However, we were kept informed and made comfortable."
Cons: "I did not know when I booked through Lufthansa that it was a United flight, so I could not check in online and I was not able to order my gluten-free meal. Also, since it was Lufthansa, I was not able to download the entertainment system onto my portable device because I did not know I needed to."
Cons: "The special meal I got was not the same as I ordered."
Pros: "All the staff was very friendly and helpful."
Cons: "Terrible leg room."
Cons: "The crew didn't seem quite ready for offering refreshments, and I had to go and ask for water several times. The snacks weren't very ubstantial, and having a good 4-5 hours in between meals was hard for me as I had been traveling for a long time already."
Pros: "Cleanliness"
Cons: "Delays in departure from Hamburg. Lack of information, directions or assistance with connection."
Cons: "I did not like that I had to pay another 30Euri to transport my suitcase. When I booked the flight there is no indication that luggage is excluded"
Cons: "Improve the food quality"
Pros: "test this test this test this test this test this test this test this test this test this"
Cons: "test this test this test this test this test this test this test this"
Cons: "At the luggage claim the flight crew collected their baggage first then the passengers. My last bag didn't appear for 40 minutes after the flight crew departed."
Pros: "Thank you so much for having activities for children to keep them entertained."
Pros: "One and half hour flight, not much to report."
Pros: "Nice plane and good crew."
Cons: "No complaints."
Pros: "It was all together a pleasant trip."
Cons: "unable to select seats at booking until 24 hours before and even then, was unable to do so for the US to Hamburg leg"
Cons: "Addis airport is a disaster, Really long queues and badly organised, Our flight left 20 minutes late and in turn made our landing 1 hour later. The flight attendants on Ethiopian air are very lazy, they dont respond to the service button been pushed, and their English is not that good,"
Pros: "Senator member , business flight ... And everything wrong that can happen happened ...cancelled flight , delayed flight , then again delay ,then me losing the flight cause of their delay , waiting in the airport for 8 hours ... Hate you Lufthansa , never coming back"
Cons: "Check-in in Munich took way too long. The lines were confusing and the agent opened another lane and took about 30 people who were behind us in line ahead of us."
Pros: "N/A"
Cons: "Boarded plane from front of plane back. I paid €18 extra for my seat and I was the last to board. My bag was taken from me because there wasn’t room and it was lost during my layover. Crew members were all scowling and not helpful."
Pros: "Crew was excellent"
Cons: "N/A"
Cons: "Aegean is an excellent airline one of the best"
Pros: "Cabin crew was polite and accommodating"
Cons: "The captain failed to provide updates on the the delayed due to storms. We were sitting on th plane at the gate for an hour and a half with no updates. Also the seat rows are to narrow/close with its other and seats are not comfortable."
Pros: "The Crews welcoming, friendly and helpful"
Cons: "It’s nit necessarily comfortable... really hard to sleep"
Pros: "Comfortable flights. On time. Nice staff."
Cons: "Food was not great."
Pros: "Nothing was outstanding, I do like the hard candy treats they hand out prior to flight."
Cons: "It was such a nightmare at the gate. We were standing in line and then were shoved aside by other passengers and the attendants did nothing to help keep order when boarding. Also we had paid to upgrade our seats to extra leg room and they had given our seats away to a handicap person."
Pros: "The crew!"
Cons: "We were late"
Pros: "The food was excellent and the cabin crew were friendly"
Cons: "Not enough water available as it was a very warm flight and I was quite dehydrated"
Cons: "Terrible customer service. Rude and unhelpful. They refused to do a spelling change on my name and forced me to purchase a second ticket. The flight was 25+ minutes late taking off due to lack of organization at passenger check-in. It really is a shame that Agean is pretty much the only option to Istanbul (IST) from Athens."
Pros: "Boarding was quick, the food was nice, all the attendants hadn’t big smiles on their faces, the pilot was experienced."
Pros: "Efficient way the flight was boarded. Crew was pleasant overall a good flight"
Cons: "I would like to suggest in your survey to have NA as a choice because there was no entertainment available on this short flight but I didn’t want to give it no stars as it would affect the overall rating. Thanks"
Pros: "Everything was on-time, easy, and fairly quick."
Cons: "The legroom."
Pros: "The food and the crew"
Cons: "The flight was delayed 2 hours"
Cons: "Had to double pay for baggage. Total scam"
Pros: "Wonderful staff and service. Food was good."
Cons: "Plane was a little late due to airport backup"
Pros: "Nothing positive to report, besides getting to Athens almost an hour late"
Cons: "Excessive baggage charges, Never seen flight attendants treat passengers so unfriendly. Lead flight attendant was the worst. First time experience and for sure also the last time we’ll fly this airline"
Pros: "Good planes. Kosher food was awful. No entertainment."
Cons: "They locked the bathrooms whenever the staff were passing around drinks, food, or collecting garbage. They claimed it was due to "safety" but every staff was easily walking around passing around drinks. There was no turbulence. Even when multiple people tried to get up to go to the restroom, they sent them away. Finally, when they unlocked the bathrooms after a good 30 mins, there were HUGE lines. They did this multiple times. It doesn't make sense to lock the bathrooms that long. People need to use the restroom and then they create larger lines which is more dangerous because even more people are standing up at the same time. Doesn't make sense. Will probably not use this airline again if this occurs again."
Pros: "Same as above"
Pros: "They give you a hot meal, even on a short flight."
Cons: "Their dimensions for carry on luggage are smaller than the industry norm. As such, bags that most any other airline would consider carry on, must be checked for 40 Euros on Aegean."
Pros: "Nice to get a meal, but don't understand why you do that when you charge extra for baggage."
Cons: "Couldn't understand attendant's announcements; too rushed + accent. Too rigid about lavatories including opening the door when people were using it."
Pros: "When I booked my ticket from New York to Greece with a 3 day stop over in Paris I should have been told that I would have to pay to check in my luggage from Paris to Greece. I assumed that since I was entitled to one free piece of luggage from New York to Paris that I wouldn't have to pay any fees going from Paris to Athens. I ended up paying 240.00 euros to check in 4 suitcases! that's absurd!! In addition I couldn't check in online for this flight and therefore was not told via email that I could at least check in my bags via the internet for s reduced fee. This is a kayak issue. Otherwise Aegean was great."
Pros: "That we survived"
Cons: "The crew had no control over any situation. The flight attendants were abrupt and clearly didn't want to be there. I have never felt so much anxiety on a flight due to a flight attendant jot being able to do her job with competence. I will avoid this airline at great lengths for the future.not to mention it was the most uncomfortable plane and the pilot may have still been getting his hours to fly? Not sure."
Pros: "Helpful staff, comfortable seats, accurate departure and arrival times."
Cons: "A big delay."
Pros: "Great food and drink."
Cons: "So cramped!"
Cons: "after boarding, we were stuck sitting in the plain for 2 hours because of a technical problem, and Aegean was trying to use the situation to sell us water! no water was given to us, also- no useful information about the status of the problem."
Cons: "The baggage limits are very strict; if you haven't limited your packing & weighed your bags, be prepared for high fees. 3 of us traveling together with carry-ons that we took free on other airlines (thank you Iberia!) cost us $250!!! Lights were NOT turned off for this overnight flight & VERY noisy"
Pros: "Boarding wasn't the most efficient, but when is it ever? I had never flown with Aegean but had to take two flights with them between Munich and Rome. Economy seating was very comfortable, the aircraft were attractive and immaculate, the crews were lovely and quick, and the food on both flights was shockingly good."
Cons: "My flights were short, but it would have been nice to have a movie on thr screens distributed throughout the plane."
Pros: "Good for the price seat are not the best but worth it for the money"
Cons: "boarding took for ever. service from the cabin crew was not good. no entertainment."
Pros: "Staff is helpful in the plane, on the ground and on thephone. Ahead of time."
Pros: "The cabin crew was friendly and attentive."
Cons: "The space between seats was awful. As a taller person, it made for a very uncomfortable flight. And on top of it, these tickets were quite expensive! I'd love for an airline to prioritize comfort without making that an upgrade. I'll think twice, probably three times before using Aegean again."
Pros: "Staff was great, fast easy check in, food was nice and everything was on time."
Pros: "Everything was very efficiently run, and the staff were all very friendly and helpful."
Cons: "On the outward flight Aegean sent me the next connection flight gate on my phone, but they didn't do that on the return flights. Anyway, it was easy enough to find the next gate inside the airport."
Cons: "Bag fees for 2 20KG bags were about as much as the ticket, not worth the cramped seats and lack of services."
Pros: "New, clean plane, meal served on board was unexpected but very good, crew was professional. App for Aegean Airlines works well."
Cons: "Seats were uncomfortable and small. Boarding was messy and didn't seem to work very well."
Cons: "My flight was cancelled and I wasn't notified. I found out when I tried to check in on line. I could not check in and could not buy an extra piece of luggage. I had to pay extra at the airport. Also at check in the employee made a mistake and charged me twice. Then told me I will get a refound."
Pros: "Flight was canceled and had to stay 3 more nights took boat to Athens. Missed work at home . It cost me over 1000.00 dollars. Reservation was never made by you. I will never use kayak again. Being a senior I became very stressed in a strange country"
Cons: "I don't like kayak"
Pros: "We booked this flight so we would get to Rhodes early and have the whole day there. Unfortunately the flight from Mykonos was delayed (apparently due to weather but other flights were landing and departing) which caused us to miss our connection in Athens. What should have been a 2.5 hour trip ended up taking us 10 hours and we spent an entire day of our vacation waiting around in airports. Needless to say, this was the lowest point of our trip. In addition, there was virtually no information or updates provided at Mykonos airport. The flight information on the monitors was incorrect and there were no announcements made. We had to exit the security area and walk over to Aegean Air desk in order to find out what was going on. This lack of information caused us additional delays as we sat in the airport waiting for an update. Aegean Air handed us a sheet saying that their service fell below the standard and that we were entitled to free flights, but we won't be able to use them as we were only in Greece for a limited time (on our honeymoon). It would be terrific if Kayak could get our flights refunded by Aegean Air. Thank you."

Pros: "Hot lunch was a pleasant surprise. Seats comfortable but cramped and didn't recline. Prompt baggage service."
Cons: "No entertainment. No power jacks."
Cons: "The staff in Athens airport, at the ticket desks, were disinterested, and actually rude. Bad impression."
Pros: "Did not feel like a budget airline. Great service."
Pros: "The flight was smooth"
Cons: "No clear signage on line formations Boarding pass kiosk was broken only one working CHAOS No one in authority assisting families or anyone else."
Pros: "Pretty good service from the crew. That's about it."
Cons: "Some of the tiniest most uncomfortable seats I've been on. I did not realize that Aegean was a budget airline going to a third world country (Greece??!). Flight was late but they pretended that it wasn't (45 minutes)"
Cons: "No drink at the flight"
Pros: "The airplane was comfortable"
Cons: "I purchased my ticket in advance and upon checkin was never informed that I was standby. I dont know why the seats were oversold. Ultimately, I did get a seat but the confusion and communication regarding the standby was stressful"
Pros: "clean aircraft, wonderful crew.. comfortable seating.. quick, professional... everything..."
