Pros: "Services is good ."
Cons: "Food can be better"

Cons: "When a bought my ticket, I had asked in the office about WiFi. They told me that you have WiFi on the plane. I had checked this information on KLM.com and saw the same, that you have WiFi. This was the reason, why a chose KLM! Then I tried to connected on board but I couldn’t! WiFi was not available. Crew told me that they don’t know anything about it! I was disappointed and angry."

Pros: "KLM are our airline of choice. A great full-service carrier with impecable standards."
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "I paid for the preferred seat .and i found that people beside me didnt pay anything when i asked them ,"

Cons: "Boarding was chaotic & therefore delayed take off a little Receiving luggage was slow -@ 35 minutes from landing to luggage claim, so actual arrival was considerably later for those meeting me"

Pros: "Crew helpful. Food good."
Cons: "Better range of movies please"

Pros: "Great crew, comfortable seating with enough leg room."
Cons: "Provide dinner before getting to joburg, instead of a snack. Flight arrives late so dinner would be appreciated"

Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "KLM lost one piece of my luggage"

Cons: "Flight 2 hours delayed, started boarding but had to wait on line 10 more minutes on boarding ramp for plane door to be opened, upon landing in Dublin had to wait on tarmac for anther 15 minutes for stairs to arrive and be connected to airplane. Then had to wait another hour for checked luggage...."

Cons: "Entertainment"

Pros: "Nice attention and good food. Plane and seats are confortable"

Pros: "Service is awesome. Food is great."
Cons: "People with short connection are affected by the 15 to 25 minutes delay."

Pros: "The crew"
Cons: "Seat comfort"

Cons: "We had 4 hour delay causing a stop over at 3am. So yeah"

Pros: "Crew was pleasant but not attentive to detail. Bypassed is completely for snack and drink towards end of 9 hour flight!"
Cons: "Pay attention to passengers."

Pros: "Nice aircraft"
Cons: "Unexpected refueling stop. 2 hr delay Lost connection Reached destination after 18 hr delay"

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

Cons: "Need more leg room!!! Larger meals needed."

Cons: "Larger meals."

Pros: "Very pleased with KLM - efficiency all round and especially the baggage handling at Schipol swhere I had 20 minutes to transfer and my baggage came back with me to the UK which is no mean feat given the hustle and bustle of such a large airport"
Cons: "No downsides at all"

Pros: "Crew was nice and efficient"
Cons: "Economy seats don’t recline enough."

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

Pros: "Service was great as usual. Food was very good and entertainment options were great so you won't have to be bored throughout the trip."

Pros: "Very pleasant, professional crew"
Cons: "Very slow check in. Mainly because other passengers obviously don't read instructions re: weight/contents of cabin bags etc. Would be helpful if there was additional staff to deal with them away from check in desk. This would mean that others did not have to queue for 25 minutes because the check in girls also had to deal with them"

Cons: "Check in at Berlin was extremly slow. Staff was very unprofessional and not very friendly."

Pros: "Great service"

Pros: "The attention and service!! Excellent. It was my birthday and KLM the head purser surprised me with 2 bottles of bubbles and a handwritten birthday card KlM and the crew of this flight thank you very much !"
Cons: "Nothing to say"

Pros: "Seats were comfortable and there was enough room for hand baggage. I slept during the flight so do not have opinion on entertainment."
Cons: "Not able to charge my digital devices. When serving beverages and food, the same flight attendant missed me a few times. That was annoying but other attendants were very nice."

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."

Cons: "... ear plugs, masks, good food or even picking seats? I remember when it was all complementary and standard on overnight flights. Oh, and the vegetarian breakfast was unfortunately poor as well. I know you can do better, because you used to."

Pros: "Friendly attendants. Decent food, and frequent snacks and beverages."
Cons: "No charging ports for electronic devices."

Pros: "Fabulous trip with friendly, helpful staff"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Crew was very nice and helpful, entertainment system worked well and had good choices"
Cons: "Seats were not very comfortable, it was uncomfortably hot and there was not air conditioner vent above like most other airlines"

Pros: "Excellent very good"
Cons: "Everting so good ex"

Pros: "Nothing"

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: "Just great crew."
Cons: "Not comfortable at all and will not book KLM again."

Cons: "KLM crews look unhappy with their work. Everything they do is a favor not duty."

Pros: "The flight was very good, specially considering it was a daylight one. Staff was friendly and servicial. Tue food was above the industry's average."

Pros: "Short-hop flight, fit for purpose."

Pros: "Jet airways flight till mumbai"
Cons: "Poor legspace in Klm flight till Amsterdam"

Cons: "Why do the crew have to slam the overhead and catering compartments to get them to shut?"

Cons: "One of the senior stewardesses we're very rude. Whether it's her personal opinion or KLM's policy, it's unreasonable to think that a 3 years old child could or should hold her pipi over 20 minutes, while they slowly and inefficiently trying to give out food. Several parents were there with the request to let us through to the toilet with small children and she smiled in our face and said "no, we will finish first and than you can go". She might be not fit for the job anymore, but KLM can't afford this kind of treatment."

Pros: "Free wee cake."
Cons: "Nothing in particular."

Cons: "Horrible. First, we lost a suitcase. It could happen but for two days they did nothing and only told us stories (so as not to use the word lies). Within a few hours (and thanks to airline assistance) we were able to locate the suitcase. Even then it took them two days to bring it to us, two precious days off our planned vacation (7 days) At the end of the shortened vacation, we got to the chek in, and told that since the ticket I had purchased form them two months earlier was too cheap ... and since the flight was Over booked, they would take me off the plane if all the passengers would arrive. It's unnecessary to describe what I felt until the plane took off. They apologize constantly, but do nothing practical. a bae company. no me nor my freinds/family will go with KLM"

Pros: "Unexpected surprise--even on a 1 hour flight at noon, they gave us a sandwich!"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Airlines had no record of our pets flying with. Missed our flight even though we were there over 3 hours prior. Ruined the last day of vacation. Now we are waiting for the promised help in Amsterdam. No one is here. No one knows anything. Feel like crying"

Pros: "A nice short flight"
Cons: "We had booked business on our flight to Milan, and it was extremely disappointing that on this sector they put us on the last seat in the back of the plane. There were plent of seats on this flight that had extended legroom. A bit of a mystery, why Westjet elected to put usin the last seats on the plane?"

Pros: "Crew was great. Apartment class was great!"
Cons: "Don't put on the airport board that the plane is boarding when it is not"

Pros: "Great flight....enjoyed it thoroughly....."

Pros: "Boarding was easy"
Cons: "Expensive flight"

Pros: "Absolutely nothing."

Cons: "the touchscreen inflight system didn’t work very well in the MNL-AUH leg of the trip"

Pros: "Crew was cordial"
Cons: "Check-in - it took 2 hrs to check our bags"

Pros: "Good aircraft"
Cons: "Check in could not be done earlier and was not enabled and helpdesk did not help. Seats kept changing till the last moment"

Cons: "Food not very good. Service used to be better in the past"

Pros: "Multiple delays which was due to poor management on the airlines side"

Pros: "NOTHING!"
Cons: "Abysmal experience on our return flight! # Abu Dhabi Airport is so outdated and an embarassment compared to the other Regional Airports # Boarding procedure still shambolic # A330 seems old and uncomfortable - even though it is a new plane # Cabin Crew so unfriendly and sour # Toilets again disgusting within 30 minutes after taking off # Food still shockingly disgusting # Onboard entertainment still inferior to Emirates/Qatar/etc."

Pros: "Only inflight entertainment"
Cons: "No one told me or suggested me of asking for accomodation as I had stopover for over 15 hours. Staff made an excuse and blamed ticketing agent. Even Kayak.com did not suggest this. Had to spend couple of hundred dollar for accomodation . Not happy at all. First time experience with flight and booking agent is very unsatisfied. Thank you though"

Cons: "Aircraft"

Pros: "I liked the wider seats and slightly more leg-room on the Abu Dhabi/London leg of the flight, the food was good and the staff pleasant."
Cons: "I was randomly picked for an "extra security check" at the Heathrow check-in in Abu Dhabi, which seemed ridiculous after going through the Johannesburg security and x-ray check as well as the Abu Dhabi one, and then having to switch on all of my electronic equipment and be swabbed for what I assume was drugs felt a bit over-the-top."

Pros: "Crew serve with passion"
Cons: "Long queue for check-in"

Pros: "The crew was very nice"
Cons: "The seats super uncomfortable and the entertainment is very mediocre Qatar airways way better"

Pros: "The food and the entertainment."
Cons: "The information desk had a terrible attitude towards me - the customer, and when I tried to explain to them how disrespectful they were being they continued to disrespect me once again. Also, the worker at the counter was lazy and wouldn't do his required job. Also, the new update towards the tv makes it harder for me to pause the movie I am watching or to finish the movie altogether."

Cons: "Overall the flight was okay. What was disappointing was that our luggage didn't reach Prague at the same time. I have a meeting tomorrow and really wanted to take a bath upon arriving at the hotel. The problem is, all my clothes were in my luggage. Add to the fact that I have an early meeting tomorrow and I don't know what time my luggage will arrive."

Pros: "Comfort on such a long flight was much better than other airlines. Food was great"

Pros: "It was such a long flight with almost 15 hours of travel. So, I was bit worried. But the flight crew was all set to make us comfortable. Their patience, attention to all requirements and efficiency really impressed me."

Pros: "The service was very efficient and warm. The food was tasty. The team was throughout helpful and prompt."

Pros: "I always enjoyed etihad flights except this time that I regretted booking the flight through kayak. The second leg of the flight was on Pakistan International Airlines from Abu Dhabi to Islamabad that I didn't notice. Very dangerous airline. I think the sight should clearly warn u that the other segment of flight is on other line when u check flights. Because the flight detail showed only Etihad airways all the way to Islamabad"

Pros: "Everything was good."
Cons: "Flight got delayed without notice"

Cons: "From the trip to india and the way back, The experience was horrible. The staff was rude and unwilling to help. Compared to other airlines very bad customer service. I will never fly Etihad again. I will actively tell people not to fly Etihad. At the Ahmedabad Airport they were unwilling to help and very rude!"

Pros: "The crew was lovely and the food fitted our needs ."
Cons: "The only downside was that when I received my bag after my arrival to Dhaka my luggage was obviously opened and tape back up and I was missing a lot of things in my luggage . It was very upsetting because that has never happened to me before nor did I expect something like that to happen."

Pros: "On time departure and arrival"
Cons: "Very clean inside and bathroom , EY could provide training to the hostage"

Pros: "I like their perfect schedule. Their crew members are also very helpful."
Cons: "The first main meal was the same as in the flight from kolkata to abu dhabi. I don't get non veg option. I got very bad smell from my next passenger."

Cons: "All but one of the flight attendants, who unfortunately was not in my section, seemed rather terse and far less than kind. Simple requests from fellow passengers were regarded as inconvenient intrusions. The gal in my section would act like she had not heard the requests and then when the passengers would repeat themselves, she would snap, "Please wait till I've finished my service." She rarely would make eye contact with anyone while doing, "her service" and acted like it was a major inconvenience. It was a long flight but the crew on the way to New Delhi on Jet Airways were exceptional and made the flight as pleasant as possible. The Eithad crew lacked this attitude."

Pros: "Food was alright, and they got my special requirement wrong at first, but then linda fixed it. The flight going to India was much better. Excellent airline thou."

Pros: "Lacking in Hosiptality"
Cons: "Lacking in Hosiptality"

Pros: "we like the services....coming from LA to ABU DHABI time between flight was only 50 minutes but security check was really fast....overall We liked ETIHAD very much...a hassle free experince"

Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "They need better food"

Pros: "All ok."
Cons: "Seats seem pretty short. Only half my leg fits on them and I am not a tall person."

Pros: "The crew was wonderful, as was the food and the aircraft itself. No complaints."
Cons: "I wish there had been more movie options."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "This ar line has no absolute respect for its people. It seems because it is a fight going to India, which apparently it is not an important country they can do anything. The worst gate (I do not know if this is the air line choice or not), there was no line to boarding, there was not enough seat at the gate and one of the people at the gate was insisting that travelers should sit. The crew was rude to the Indian people, however they themselves were not acting properly. The bus came to get the people from the gate to the plane in Abu Dabi was really bad."

Pros: "Punctual"
Cons: "Nothing not to like."

Pros: "The trip was late and the transite one left and they refused to componsate me neither by ticket nor money .. It was ahorrible trip i lost 4000 dollars for hotels and other ticket which is toooooo much"
