Cons: "Packed plane. No social distancing!"
Cons: "Good food and entertainment. Flight started in delay as usual with Turkish"
Pros: "The staff the staff the staff. They made the trip so enjoyable. The A330-300 aircraft was smooth and silent. Very impressed"
Cons: "The seats in business class were not as soft as they could be but very impressed overall and good value for the cost of the business class ticket"
Pros: "They put me on a partner airline after causing my missed connection, so I witnessed nothing good about Turkish Airlines flight at this time."
Cons: "After a long saga with no help in making my connecting flight on the same Turkish Airlines, they gave me the boarding pass and told me my luggage was fine to carry on board for the partner airline they put me on. At the gate, that partner airline's reps (or Istanbul airport employees -- not sure) yelled at me that I had too much to carry on board and forced me to hastily check a bag with personal items I did not plan on checking. Needless to say, that also delayed my reaching the final destination even further because I had to wait for the luggage and it was already 1:00 in the morning in an unfamiliar and rough foreign city."
Cons: "The booking experience was exceptionally bad. Never again through you."
Pros: "Turkish airlines was one of the best flight company on the world with crew with amenities and with smile face"
Cons: "Delayed and boarding"
Pros: "almost everything"
Cons: "Old entertainment system with no choice of movies"

Cons: "The cabins on both flights were too warm."
Pros: "Great service in the airplane plus they offer some amenities like slippers, tooth paste and toothbrush, they offer you wet towels to clean and refresh yourself during he flight. Really good."
Pros: "Baggage allowance of two 23 kg checked bags each. Meals very good including specially ordered vegan ones."
Cons: "Delays in boarding and takeoff from Istanbul to Boston caused flight to arrive 1 hour late which messed up ground arrangements. This may have been because of new Turkey - USA visa issue which just took effect. Refueling was also late. Note: the Istanbul airport is quite dated; restrooms at airport not very clean."
Pros: "I was very impressed that I am already looking to travel again with the airline on my next travel!"
Cons: "Very disorganized the gate checking, staff ne d hospitality training . You ESP not have time for your queries and concerns . They are always in a hurry to finish talkign to you . Poor hygiene. The bathrooms are very dirty and has nomjand soap to wash your hands . Male staff in board come across unpolite. ingelt inwelcomed by the male flight attendant port side at the back.?"
Cons: "The service on Turkish airlines was not friendly or helpful. The food was not quality, or food tasting. The entertainment didn't include a lot of movies at all. One of the flights did even give headphones. The staff wasn't rude and not helpful, and didn't make the flight comfortable. I had high hopes flying with Turkish Airlines for the first time, but I was thoroughly disappointed with everything."
Pros: "Overall the experience was good with friendly staff."
Cons: "My luggages where ruined and there was heavy rain. The luggages where left out instead of being protected l, damaging clothing and the luggages themselves. Also they had us for over an hour in the airplane because of bad weather conditions instead of having us out!"
Pros: "When I missed my flight from Belgrade to Istanbul due to plane being late 45 min.and I missed my flight to LA, they gave me a free accommodation and meals."
Cons: "I didn't like the fact that nobody told me that Ataturk Airport in Istanbul is so big that you can not make to connect flight on time for an hour.Especially if you flight has been late to depart like mine from Belgrade due to the rain. I thought I will make it to the connect flight to LA but the gate was already closed. I was instructed to do multiple errands, to get Turkish visa, etc all on my expense to be able to exit the transit as an American citizen and be able to take Turkish airlines bus to the hotel.The hotel was fine and the meals. The problem was that they calculate bus traveling time wrong in the hotel and put people on the bus next day too late, so due to the traffic jam, we barely made it to the airport, and then we had to stress the officials to put us on the fast passport control lane due to boarding time."
Pros: "Good entertainment system with lots of options."
Cons: "The plane was uncomfortably warm throughout the (long!) flight, which made it difficult to get any rest."
Pros: "Cabin crew was so kind and all the time asking for my needs"
Cons: "Airplane was a bit outdated and since the aircraft didnt had first class only business so the seating was un comfortable at all. By the way the aircraft is boeing 737 if im not mistaken."
Cons: "Delayed yet again"
Pros: "Outstanding service Excellent food Adequate entertainment Seat recline was good for economy"
Cons: "For a long flight (8+ hours) legroom on this Airbus was quite cramped Again poor boarding announcements resulted in very chaotic boarding process"
Pros: "The flight staff was very friendly, even to difficult passengers."
Pros: "I eventually arrived at the destination."
Cons: "Difficult to communicate with cabin crew due to lack of English. Flight was delayed by 1 hour. General atmosphere on plane was chaotic I think due to the small plane and length of flight as large numbers of people needed to use toilets."
Pros: "Not trying to be flattering here but it really is a good airline."
Cons: "it was so HOT!!!!!!!"
Pros: "The staff was efficient, friendly, and helpful, the meal was reasonably good, my fellow passengers were pleasant."
Cons: "Most discomfort I had stemmed more from my own fatigue and the inherent dryness of airplane air than anything that could have been controlled. No, the tea I had after my meal wasn't good, but I'm picky. The entertainment options were heavily impaired by the heinous sound quality, however, rendering the movie I watched crackly and often inaudible. I also wish the ticket counter opened earlier before the flight, especially when it ostensibly closes an hour before takeoff. That makes for a narrow window indeed."
Pros: "Even in economy, TK serves two full meals, with beer/wine as beverage options. They also give an overnight bag with slippers and other helpful goodies"
Cons: "The level of service by the cabin crew was really disappointing. One of the flight attendants asked me to switch seats with the woman seated next to me (although I had pre-selected my seat). I obliged, although I think that the cabin crew and/or gate agents should have given more thought to giving her a better seat assignment, like a bulkhead seat. This woman was uncommonly large with mobility problems, so it was difficult for me to get up when I wanted to. The entertainment system malfunctioned about an hour into the flight, and I had to flag down a cabin crew member on 3 separate occasions to ask them to look into it. No one ever bothered to follow up or attempt to resolve the problem. To make matters worse, the entertainment system is connected to the entire electrical system, so I couldn't use the "call cabin crew" button, or the overhead light - meaning I was stuck in the dark for HOURS. Only after I demanded to be given another seat did anyone do anything, and with zero apologies."
Pros: "The variety of films on show was decent"
Cons: "The crew skipped our aisle whilst delivering the toiletry bags, some announcements were made purely in Turkish without regard to English passengers. The boarding gate from Istanbul was opened much later than the advertised times."
Pros: "Excellent service, food and entertainment."
Cons: "The boarding was long and via buses!"
Pros: "excellent food, service"
Pros: "I liked almost everything. The service is excellent."
Cons: "It would be great if the transfer flights would have shorter option"
Pros: "There was a real good meal included on this relatively short flight. The crew was friendly. Best airline I've experienced in a while. ."
Cons: "Too little leg room. My knees touched the seat in front. Boarding was a little weird. It was announced that families with children etc were to board first. But then the groups were not called when each of them started boarding (or was that the flight to LAX? Anyway, only a minor thing)"
Pros: "the flight and service were good"
Cons: "after the ooup d'tout there was a period of chaos and i had to stand in line for 11.5 hours straight to get a new flight boarding pass.l They could have maybe come up with a different system for this considering the 2 or 3,000 people who had their flights canceled. that was incredibly unpleasant...herded in like cattle for 12 hours with i don't know how many thousands of people trying to get a flight out. It was like being in a refuge camp."
Pros: "The crew was good"
Cons: "The bording wasn't good"
Cons: "Possible food poisoning from the beef that was served on the plane."
Pros: "Must and entertainment, and legroom."
Cons: "Turkish airline randomly changed my seat assignments without any explanation to me. I also found out my connect flight was changed to much later and one causing me an eight hour delay and assemble airport. Again this was done without my knowledge I happen to randomly find out at the check-in station in Los Angeles. The manager was kind enough to switch me back to my old flight and seat assignments but it took an hour waiting. After boarding the plane it was an hour and a half delay intake off I also realized this my original seats were given to three ladies who are friends of the first class flight attendants there were no children or elderly this was a random acts of favoritism towards the flight attendants after boarding the plane it was an hour and a half delay intake off I also realized this my original seats were given to three ladies who are friends of the first class flight attendants there were no children or elderly this was a random acts of favoritism towards the flight attendants trance friends. As a result of the irresponsible delay at the airport and the pilot not bothering to make up the time when we arrive to sample I realized we had missed her flight despite the promises that they will wait it was the most horrible experience. Rest of the passengers and I were waiting at the connecting gate with the gate number the flight number and the sign saying now boarding but there was no plane no one could give us an explanation of what happened. I will never fly Turkish again"
Pros: "I like the food, seats and customer service"
Pros: "Great service, great stewardess, overall great experience!!!"
Cons: "Loved it all"
Pros: "Great crew service and food. Great entertainment features."
Cons: "Wish services in Istanbul airport was better. Had to take a bus to the terminal and transfer directions and gate services was confusing and not very good. But this is not the airlines fault."
Pros: "Food and crew were excellent, but one of the seats we were in had a fuzzy connection for the audio of the entertainment system."
Cons: "One of the seats we were in had a fuzzy connection for the audio of the entertainment system. There was a 2+ hr delay in an area with no food or restrooms, and the airline did not give any details or statuses, just kept delaying 30 minutes at a time."
Pros: "For a long flight, most were able to sleep. The crew was very busy during the first couple hours and also very present. Movie choices were wonderful. I was lucky enough to have an empty seat next to me although when the man in front of me reclined, his head was practically in my lap."
Cons: "After first service, the crew disappeared. I get very thirsty and was in need of water more often than they were willing to pass it out. I did not go to galley to request additional water, which likely would have been provided! Passengers made a MESS in aisles & lavs, which was not picked up thru the flight."
Cons: "I had no idea that the flight you booked me on require extra 40 euro fees for check-in luggage. To add insult to injury, the Aegean flight required check-in at a Lufthansa counter which would not accept payment for the luggage fee. I had to wait in a long line of 30+ passengers at the Aegean counter"
Pros: "Seat comfortable."
Cons: "Wasn’t able to check in on line so I had to check in at the airport. I walked up yo the counter, the customer service lady was on the phone. I had to wait for her to get off. When she did she told me I could check on line. She gave me conflicting info."
Pros: "Pilot kept us well informed."
Cons: "Flight attendants were rude and impatient with anyone not speaking greek."
Pros: "Could not fly due to medical reason and any all the info to last minute. It lasted 13 days and finally got only a refund of taxes. I’ll never use them again and make sure to book with Kayak as I used too."
Pros: "Fast and easy"
Cons: "It was too many bags on that airplane and no regulation it a help from the crew"
Cons: "It was late and missed connection. Had to buy a new tix form Aegean !!!!"
Pros: "The staff were nice."

Pros: "They even give you food on a lunchtime flight~"
Pros: "Ease of boarding and crew"
Pros: "Very nice crew, had trouble with boarding"

Pros: "The crew were very professional and polite on board and the food was excellent"
Cons: "The baggage machine at Athens that my friend used seemed to be faulty when the same bag was checked on another machine it was kilos lighter. But the ground staff at that machine a man was very rude to her."
Cons: "Again the airport. Its not the airlines fault, but to have ONe set of toilets in a whole airport wing is unacceptable."
Cons: "Connection flight was not accessible because of the arrival delay. Airline staff did not help at all."
Cons: "Gâte operator were very slow I was going to loose my connection to Paris as it took me more than 1hour to make the check in"
Cons: "One thing that sticks out the most for me is how rude the airport crew are. A lot of people (including me, at first) were confused about the gate. One knows the gate isn’t always what it says on the boarding pass. Especially if printed from a different airport. Anyway, not knowing that the gate won’t show on the screens until about an hour before departure time, we were asking a lot of the ground staff about which gate etc. They were very rude and dismissive."
Pros: "Actually every thing were smoothly going"
Cons: "The trip were As per flight schedule on ticket without further delay. I enjoy on Greece Athens little bit then I moved to Budapest."
Pros: "Friendly crew, great yogurt and snack in a 2 hr flight."
Cons: "Aegean desks very crowded at El Venizelos (Athens) airport. Airport authority should provide more desks for high demand airlines."
Pros: "That they use Greek products is really makes the experience for me. Friendly staff."
Pros: "Once we landed in Athens, knowing that our next flight would be taking off in 5 minutes, we thought ther was no way that we'd make it. Instead, they had someone waiting for us when we got off of the flight and someone to run all 11 of us through the airport to the plane. Aegean held the flight because they knew 11 people from the Santorini flight were coming."
Cons: "Once on the plane, we ended up sitting there for another 30 minutes, even though it was already 20 minutes late waiting for us. When I asked the stewardess whether that meant that our bags were going to make the flight she said she'd have to check. She never came back. I then asked a second girl and she said that she'd have to check and she never came back. I finally asked again before landing and she supposedly went and asked someone and came back and said yes they made it. Got to baggage claim - no bags. We had another flight to catch back to the states, so we didn't have time to figure out the situation. We spent the next three days frantically calling Aegean, to no avail. Their customer service either wouldn't answer or would tell us to call London Heathrow lost and found, who wouldn't answer. Eventually, Delta found our bags and had to work with Lufthansa and their own boots on the ground at LHR to find the bags and get them back to us."
Cons: "Couldn't easily buy checked baggage beforehand so had to pay at the check in counter. The self check in kiosks did not work at CDG airport."
Pros: "I was tricked into not having checked luggage by your website. I had to pay for checked luggage. Your site is responsible. I should receive a reimbursement for this incident."
Pros: "It got me to Larnacasafely."
Cons: "Seats were horribly uncomfortable. I will not fly this airline again after my last trip onthe 14th of August."
Pros: "short flight but managed to get some coffee/food, very helpful and polite crew as always"

Cons: "60 euros for one checked bag is insane!"
Cons: "Excessive and undisclosed baggage fees"
Pros: "Great crew, baggage arrived"
Pros: "I slept through most of the flight."
Cons: "Everything else. Especially that I had to pay $60 for one luggage."
Pros: "Friendly staff."
Cons: "Warm soda."
Cons: "Announced 10 minute delay but when I got to the gate the plane had not yet arrived. Eventually the delay to depart was closer to 40 minutes. This is not the first time this happened with Aegean. I would appreciate more accurate and timely information about delays so as not to have to rush to the gate and then wait."
Pros: "Very polite and attentive service. Took off and arrived on time, Plane seems new and clean."
Cons: "The common TV screens went on forcing everyone to watch this loud boring segment. If you're not going to offer individual screens, simply keep it quiet. It was frustrating to have to listen to that. Also, the food was inedible. The yogurt was fine (packaged), but the spanakopita style baked good was horrible. The filling smelled and the dough was rubbery. Stick to easy basics like eggs. This is coming from someone who eats EVERYTHING"
Pros: "Comfortable, friendly attendants, good food served."
Cons: "There isn't entertainment, however, it was very comfortable and relaxing."
Cons: "Apparently when booking a ticket with Aegan one check bag is not included unless indicated at the time of purchase. This was a surprise to me since during the purchase process this was not highlighted. Additionally the boarding process was VERY unorganized . No clear lines people just rushed to board even though specific numbers were annouced."
Pros: "The flight was great. The staff was nice. Everything was great!"
Pros: "On time. As comfortable as possible. Good breakfast"
Cons: "Sets too small. Woman in front of me was able to recline her seat so far she was in my hlp and I had to push her back up. Didn't see any entertainment options."
Cons: "I was not able to use this reservation and when I contacted Aegean, they would not refund any portion of the ticket nor give me credit. Therefore, I cannot recommend the airline nor will I ever fly them."
Pros: "Accommodating staff"
Cons: "Chaos in the airport (where to wait in line, online check in vs drop off line etc)"
Cons: "The boarding gets extremely hectic. When we were getting on our flight they kept us in a hot bus for 15 minutes before letting us out to board the plane. It's also very difficult to get someone from customer services to help - they seem to pass the buck to someone else always and you're left running in circles."
Pros: "Checking was managed efficiently and courtrously"
Cons: "Everything went smoothly"
Pros: "The overweight woman who checked me in was aweful. As soon as I told her I was helping refugees in Greece, her attitude completely changed towards me. She was on my case until I boarded the plane. I will never again fly with Aegean!"
Cons: "Terrible EXPERIENCE! Aweful."
Pros: "Very kind people- I'm traveling with a broken leg and they blocked off a row of seats so I could keep my leg up for the flight!"
Cons: "The whole plane stunk of body odor and urine. It was overwhelming. The bathrooms were filthy and the water didn't work."
Pros: "Amazing food!!! All free! Amazing food and amazing wine for free! I love Aegean they are the best best best."
Pros: "I liked how the flight communication was emailed regularly. They let us know that the flight would be delayed. However, with bad wifi (not their fault) I only received these emails after my flight."
Cons: "The food was terrible. Each of the planes we had taken with Aegean had to board a bus and shuttle to the plane, so boarding the plane was a bit disorganized. No in-flight entertainment."
Nice steady flight, on time, enjoyed the complementary snack and drink. Good work KLM
Swift clean friendly on time
Pros: "I liked how generous they were with food and drinks"
Cons: "Free WiFi could have made the flight a lot better"
Pros: "Very nice airplane and pleasant crew"
Cons: "Klm is the best, even on a 40min they served small breakfast."
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: "very nice crew"
Cons: "my bagfage was lost"
Pros: "Fantastic gate agents!"
Cons: "The food was terrible."
Pros: "Crew was great and helpful despite oversight in my special meal."

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: "Seat was good"
Cons: "Depart on time (1 hour late), hostess put a laptop in the overhead, which fell out and hit me when the bin was opened"
Pros: "Crew was fantastic, seats and entertainment was great. Very good food choices."
Cons: "Everything was very good."
Cons: "Flight on time would have been good when you have a late evening arrival. Long wait for luggage at Birmingham airport."
Pros: "Crew was fantastic."
Cons: "This was the most narrow airplane seat I’ve ever experienced. So uncomfortable."
Pros: "Just the cabin crew being nice"
Cons: "Punctuality KLM is always late"
Pros: "Seat space a bit tight . I should have upgraded to more leg room . Next time!"
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."
Pros: "Friendly and efficient crew. Flights were on time if not even early."
Pros: "Very good service, teh flight attendants made it as pleasant as possible, plane left on time"
Cons: "tough to sit on a plane for 9.5 hours"

Pros: "Crew where awesone and the choice of entertainment was fantastic"
Cons: "Seats way to close together"
Pros: "The food rocks! I know that I will always be eating well with KLM. The staff is always so nice, professional and cordial...I always know I'll be in good hands with the flight. KLM #605 from Amsterdam to SFO---please pass the praise to all of them."
Pros: "Good flight, very attentive crew."
Pros: "Snooth and efficiënt with a KLM service"
Cons: "No entertainment"
Pros: "Great on board service from a very professional crew."
Cons: "Can't think of a thing."
Pros: "Arrived Early!"
Cons: "Left Late :-)"
Pros: "He missed it due to having a 32 minute layover, which he ran all the way to board."
Cons: "he had no choice but to look at the closed door of his flight, and wait an additional 7 hours and they didn't even give him a voucher for food. I'm his mother, I'm currently visiting family in Scotland, so couldn't help him much. I'm pretty disgusting and disappointed by the whole experience."
Pros: "Nothing really"
Cons: "Flew KLM 27 years ago and the airlines seem to be stuck in the same era. Food is poor quality... Have you recently checked the Gulf carriers."
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: "Good Experience"
Cons: "Nothing much"
Cons: "Please Endeavour to put the expiration date on the food served in the flight."
Pros: "Seats were comfortable"
Cons: "Flight was delayed by 2 hours. Could have gone to Amsterdam and come back in that time"
Pros: "Comfortable seats. Warm plane with happy staff."
Cons: "Maybe a second sandwich option for food, not everyone likes cheese."
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: "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: "Very little if any."
Cons: "Aircraft was not very clean,the staff seamed quite harsh at times when speaking to customers. The food was really quite poor but it was a short flight to be honest. Overall not as pleasant as the China Southern flights. I would not like to choose them again unless i had to."
Pros: "Great crew service. Among the best ever."
Cons: "Late Cabin extremely warm Full flight and centre seat means no room to relax or carry out work"
Pros: "I was upgraded to Buisness so, no complaints"
Cons: "No Marlboro light cigarettes on the duty free shopping cart"
Pros: "Crew was friendly, and the food was better than the usual KLM fare."
Cons: "The "new" seats were hard and uncomfortable. Avoid any kinds of seats near the bathroom in a configuration with 3 abreast next to the windows. The "aisle" seat is essentially a "waiting area" for the rest room."
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: "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: "Flight crew on flight from Amsterdam to Cape Town were probably the most friendly and enthusiastic I've experienced and no, they were not all young. The plane was spotless throughout the flight. They were always coming around with water and juice and they genuinely seemed to care about all the passengers. The Flight back crew were just the opposite. More like the old lazy farts you get on the American carriers or BA or QF long haul. Whoo have been there for the long haul and should have stopped ages ago."
Cons: "The Entertainment images on the screens promoted Beauty and the Beast, Batman Lego movie but neither were on the system! Food quality was rubbish"
Pros: "Was able to check in online, very convenient and easy to access site."
Cons: "I didn't go on this flight, unable to leave Seoul (to Beijing) with China Southern."
Cons: "Fewer entertainment options than the delta flight. I got excited with that first flight."
Very tight leg space in the cabin
Flight to Florence delayed. All passengers took a bus to Pisa (1.5 hours away) to fly Pisa to Paris. We missed our connection and flew next day. All information regarding the delay online was incorrect ("system not yet updated") . So calling Air France was useless as they could not assist. Not all flight delays can be avoided but many improvements are needed throughout this process.
Pros: "Seats ok. Crew is super. Drinks offered"
Cons: "Nothing, AF rocks"
Cons: "Delay in take off 45 min!!!!"
Cons: "The conditions were very cramped. The entertainment system was quite old and had very little selection. My entertainment system actually stopped working all together. I called for assistance from my seat a couple of times, but nobody came."
Cons: "They have a terrible communication problem, they never communicated why the flight was late, they never communicated what they were doing or what was happening. Bad customer service. Bad communication with the client. They told us when I asked several times that we would not lose our connection and that everything was fine and that was not the case. We lost the connection. No one told us anything. Another problem was that the girl in the boarding process removed the suitcases tickets from the boarding pass and did not want to return them, and held it without any cause. Without that tickets we can not claim the bags. The flight staff went looking for us. Pretty sad and disappointed by their service. I understand that they were causes outside the airline but must communicate to the client. They cannot remain silent and say nothing."
Pros: "Crew memebers"
Pros: "Not much, seats are super uncomfortable"
Cons: "Better code sharing with KLM"
Cons: "Our request for vegetarian meals got lost after a glight was cancelled."
Pros: "Check in agent extremely helpful and friendly."

Pros: "Crew was very friendly and seat in KQ is super comfortable in Business."

Pros: "crew great comfortable"
Cons: "Everything very good"
Pros: "The crew was excellent."
Cons: "The snacks that were handed out prior to landing were not very good and it looked as though a lot of people in our section felt the same way. Also, there were a lot of empty seats in the comfort and premium sections, but non of our gold medallions were offered an upgrade."
Pros: "Crew members"
Cons: "Up to 1 hour late and they leaved my baggage in Paris"
Cons: "Flight was delayed by at least an hour leaving Paris - a regular situation I experienced with AF."

Pros: "Service and crew are great"
Pros: "Staff was so helpful and attentive to our needs.Providing service with a smile."

Pros: "The entertainment screen was a small 4" screen. The movie selection was outdated. The screen in my seat did not work. Flight attendant said she would "call to have it reset" but it never worked. Fortunately, there was an adjacent empty seat that I moved to on my own initiative and without the flight attendant offering a seat change."
Pros: "Very good male crew member. Pilot genuinely apologetic for the delay."
Cons: "After running due to a 1 hr 10 min change over between flights boarding didn't prioritise anyone but I got on fine. Only to be told at the departure time that there was a problem with the baggage hold and we were delayed. In total 50 minutes late leaving. Breakfast a simple brioche with nothing to add to it."
Pros: "I like traveling with AirFrance in general."
Cons: "Terminal too far to go to loggage, walking about more than two miles after a long trip is not very easy AirFrance should have a better terminal at Charles-de-Gaulle!!! Have some missing stuff in my luggage!!!!"
Pros: "I like fly attendant who served us meal"
Cons: "I didn’t like that space between each seat is small"
Cons: "Screen broke half way through flight. Food was poor"
Cons: "Flight was delayed 3 times and when I was finally put on a flight that was leaving, they failed to check the connection in Paris (Left me 10 minutes to get from the aircraft to the other plane!) I was moved to SAA in the end after a truly traumatic time in Johannesburg. This is not the first time I have suffered at the hands of Air France sadly. Needless to say, I wont be booking with Air France again."
Pros: "La entrada"
Cons: "El resto de cosas"
Cons: "The flight was late, real late."
Pros: "I would like to come on time each trip because I got two late time before with airfrance"
Pros: "Nothing special"
Cons: "They start serving late the apperitif before taking off and take it back right after."
Pros: "Smoothness of flight and service"
Cons: "In a french airline, chinese-cuisine meal was more attractive than western. Unbelievable! Entertainment: films were either too old, or too uninteresting"
Pros: "The inflight service"
Cons: "The 3 hours delay"
Cons: "Cramped, no cabin bag space, late departure with no communication and lost checked luggage. Not a great Air France experience."
Pros: "Good service all around, personnel pleasant"
Cons: "Very difficult to find where to register with the flight but this is more tied to the way things are run by the airport"
Pros: "Missed connection and it was airport not Delta that was the problem. Not a good way to start a vacation. Rating is for the Paris Airport, not the flight crew or Air France employees. Still sitting in the airport when we should be at our destination."
Cons: "Hundreds of people missed their flights. Delta had us into Paris with an hour and a half to get to connecting flight. Missed flight due to huge delay in passport approval. They seemed completely unprepared."
Cons: "The crew was not very polite."
Pros: "Nice Flight Attendants Good Food"
Cons: "Flight was delayed by 1.5 hours"
Pros: "Our flight attendant and fnally making it home!"
Cons: "Disorganized uninformed staff. One says I have to have an additional "random" security check after going through the same thing in security. Turns out it wasn't random and I didn't need it. Both times they read my boarding pass wrong thought I was going to Tel Aviv - not random. Airport was hot as hell! Flight kept getting delayed then we had a gate change as well. Finally got on the plane and it took forever to take off so we were basically sitting in a sauna for 30+ minutes."
Pros: "Seats were comfortable, but the sliding action, instead of recline, took getting used to. Food was very good. Snacks available on demand, along with drinks. Complimentary wine with meal was also quite good. Entertainment system was first rate with plenty of options for TV. movies, music, games, etc..."
Cons: "Sitting in the middle two seats in the center of the 777 left me stuck for most of the flight. Got up only once. Wife's feet and ankles were swollen by the end of the flight. Not enough legroom to move much during the flight and not enough aisle space to get around with the plane so full. Have made flights twice as long on the 747 and were able to get up and walk."
Pros: "Same as above, the crew was very friendly and the food was great."
Cons: "Seating was cramped and uncomfortable for a tall person."
Pros: "Warm and elegant service"
Pros: "Clean plane, efficient crew, food OK. Boarding was organized"
Cons: "No entertainment and no power plug to charge devices."
Cons: "To many announcements on a overnight flight."
Pros: "should let first board passenger in rear rows and not everybody together."
Pros: "Boarding and such was straightforward and easy"
Cons: "Everything is uncomfortable"
Delay. Long wait in line. Poor communications.
Everything was fine with the flight. Terminal 5 caused delay with vehicles obstructing bus coming to pick us up. But flight & crew were great.
Pros: "No and no."
Cons: "Very crowded in.club class. Way lower standard for business class as compared to the other airlines."
Cons: "I made a mistake in my daughter's surname while booking online, BA refused ro change it at check-in and forced me to buy a new ticket for her."
Pros: "Leg room fantastic"
Pros: "The crew were very attentive and there was a large variety of in-flight entertainment."
Cons: "I am not a heavy set guy but the seats were unreasonably close to each other, this meant that when you eat a meal your elbows push into your sides making it hard to bring food to your mouth."
Pros: "I got an aisle seat right near the bulkhead with so much leg room. There were so many free amenities. It was the biggest plane I'd ever seen - very well kept and clean. Crew was nice and quick with service."
Cons: "Direct flights to and from South Africa to USA not via Middle East"
Cons: "Very narrow seats"
Pros: "The crew, the food and the smooth journey."
Cons: "The flight was delayed too much for the connecting flight to Leeds. Detour to Vienna - Amsterdam - Leeds. I had to run to catch the Amsterdam flight - not easy for 72 yrs old with newish hip! Now 2hrs at Schippol and may get home by midnight."
Pros: "Quick boarding."
Cons: "Nothing. Pretty good for a short trip."
Cons: "Better business class seats"
Pros: "New Years flight... very special. Great staff and grear entertainment on board"
Cons: "The flight data was not showing... could have been interesting especially on a New Years flight"
Pros: "This was a charter by BA. Airbus A320 with amazing legroom. Was slightly annoyed by them not having coffee ( to wake me up for the drive home) but I suppose I get why they weren’t serving hot beverages."
Cons: "The beverages thing above."
Cons: "Don’t like the business class seating configuration. The entertainment system played up and only worked in half the cabin. They tried to fix it without success"
Pros: "The crew was friendly and professional, and I appreciated their attention to detail even though it was a relatively short flight."
Pros: "The A380 is roomy with large overhead bins. Its quiet and smooth. Flight was on time!!"
Cons: "It was impossible to select a seat in advance. I could not even get to seat selection at online checkin. It was very frustrating. When I went to BA in London and Los Angeles they said it was responsibility of AA and when I went to AA in London & Los Angeles they referred me back to BA. Why can I not choose seats like on other airlines????"
Pros: "Excellent service from all British Airways crew that we dealt with"
Cons: "Lost luggage. One of our suitcases never arrived at JFK. A lot of food was served which was nice but quality of food was mediocre. Very high salt content. Not many options for diet restricted travelers."
Pros: "I liked that we landed 30 minutes in advance for both flights to and back, compared to the other parallel flight via SAA which was delayed 2 hours when we arrived back."
Cons: "I didn't like the cheese roll I asked for as the whole roll and cheese was literally stuck to the bottom and parts of the bottom of the roll were mushy. The staff were professional but lacked personality and seemed a little hollow."
Cons: "Cramped, uncomfortable seats. Minimal legroom. Food and beverage for purchase. Luggage charged for. Group boarding. All on a so called premium airline, for a premium price. If I want Ryanair, I’ll fly Ryanair."
Pros: "I liked the seats that I got. Staff were friendly and it was a comfortable flight overall."
Cons: "There wasn't enough drinks (water etc) coming around after meals."
Pros: "Price OK, bag checked."
Cons: "Checked in 100mins early with prior assistance request, told to wait in general area. After 15mins no wheelchair, BA agent said wait longer. After 30mins still no wheelchair, BA agent would not call to check; said keep waiting "we don't know how long for, but its on them (Deutsche Red Kross) to get you to gate without missing flight"! After 60mins, airport info agent checked & said chair was coming. After 75mins, DRK agent arrived with 2 wheelchairs and wasted time trying to find a second passenger needing assistance. Agent then rushed us through terminal with no opportunity to get food or drink or use bathrooms. Got to very remote gate 15mins before departure, and boarded last. Don't use BA Hamburg if you need assistance."
Pros: "Food was tasty"
Cons: "Was delayed"
Pros: "Quick and efficient boarding."
Cons: "The way that the crew (both in economy on right of plane) spoke to, and handled sensitive situations with several of the passengers in a loud and rather rude manner. This is not the British way that I have been accustomed to on previous BA flights, and is rather upsetting. The crew were very abrupt in general, and did not have that seasoned and polite demeanor which I expect from BA."
Pros: "BA moved me on to the Kulula flight without any fuss and gave me a meal voucher."
Cons: "I got to the airport to find that my 19:15 flight had been delayed to 22:15. I hadn't received any notification from BA and still do not know the reason for the delay. The only other option available was for BA to put us on the 20:20 Kulula flight to Lanseria and then shuttle us from Lanseria to OR Tambo. It really is not pleasant to get back home so late on a week night and not even be given any warning or any reason for the huge delay."
Pros: "Efficient boarding."
Cons: "No complaints"
Pros: "Oneworld status points"
Cons: "The price, the cancellation of the flight, the lack of free tea, the lack of baggage allowance."
Pros: "Overall flight experience was pleasant and process of disembarking flight and immigration at Heathrow was superb (very quick, under 15 minutes from plane landing to being out of the airport!)."
Cons: "Not informed of second security queue (it was long with delays) so some anxiety had until a BA staff member arrived to allow passengers to London to cut the line. No USB power at seat."
Pros: "Crew were excellent. Very friendly and helpful."
Cons: "Boxes under the seat in front took up legroom (but it did ensure good entertainment options). Could have offered some more drinks."
Pros: "The staff was great, friendly, helpful and professional."
Cons: "I thought the food lacked imagination, was skimpy and too hot. I burned my mouth several times. I really do not like having to pay for a booked seat. I have special needs at my age and so booking early is how I typically make sure I can access the bathrooms easily without climbing over sleeping passengers. I picked flight for the price, but in the end I should have stuck with Delta, KLM and Air France and got the extra miles as with seat bookings and only one bag allowance, what I ended up paying did not make it worth it. Oh well, live and learn. Seats were tight, anyone bigger than me would have really struggled."
Pros: "Friendly and helpful crew"
Cons: "My wife and I having to sit in separate seats when there were seats available next to each other. Being charged excess baggage when one suitcase was weigh under weight"
Pros: "All the normal stuff of flying domestic."
Cons: "The way that my brand new suitcase was damaged on the flight and BA just said that handles are excluded from bag damage. Thus, they can do what ever they want with your bag's handles, manhandle it and not take any responsibility. My suitcase was clearly damaged by the way it was handled since i booked it in till i received it again and they just said sorry...there is nothing we can do for you!!! Now that is is poor customer service."
Pros: "Good flight time and route. Crew are consummate professionals"
Cons: "Almost everything else was poor. There is no long lasting BA class of service anymore. The boarding is mediocre, there is no food or drinks included, you have to pay to pick your seat. Basically a flash version of EasyJet."
Pros: "I have physical limitations and required assistance stowing overhead luggage and help getting out of seat. Crew were terrific. Wheelchair assistance also great. Travels on my own."
Pros: "Made up for time due to a big tail wind"
Cons: "Took off late and had to wait 45 minutes for luggage"
Pros: "Flight was on time,actually ahead of time."
Cons: "Aircon was not efficient. Very hot in the plane."
Pros: "The space on the A380 is nice, comfortable seats, and the crew was very considerate"
Cons: "No between meals drinks (like water, etc.) or snacks left out on this 11 hour flight. The seats are still a bit close together... for the comfort of a long legged man behind me, I was not really able to recline my chair at all."
Pros: "Aside from the typically narrow seats, the service included all the hallmarks of higher-tier service, such as hot towels, cloth napkins, a good meal, and so on. The crew was attentive, as well."
Cons: "The airplane was really old. The screens wouldn't start for a really long time. Very, very few options for movies and the screen and sound had terrible quality. Food was not really good."
Pros: "Staff was extremely friendly"
Cons: "Seats were too close and comfort was hard for the long flights. I wish premium economy was better explained to one world partners prior to booking so there would be access to better seats."
Pros: "Strong tailwind brought us in 30mins ahead of schedule."
Cons: "Nothing. Was a smooth and friendly flight. Cabin crew were courteous and efficient."
Cons: "Took forever to serve cold drinks and food. Said we were going to have a short flight due to tail wind so they would not serve hot drinks. Mean while we landed at the expected time of arrival."
Pros: "Great food. Ground staff were very accommodating."
Cons: "Flight crew attitude. Cramped seating."
Pros: "Everything was good after we finally left."
Cons: "Due to mechanical issues, flight was canceled. Missed a day of our honeymoon as a result. Compensation offered as a result was unsatisfactory."
Pros: "The treatment and service you get no matter what class you flying. With BA you are always "first class" passenger. Amazing new aircraft with enough room in the economy class that makes an oversea flight very comfortable. the flight attendants are very friendly and serve you as fast as possible. I always order two drinks before the first meal and I couldn't even finish the 2nd one before they came around and asked me for another one. I would always go BA if I could. Amazing airline."
Cons: "Kayak/priceline re-booked my flight for my sister and I from SAA to BA, but failed to completely reissue us tickets. When we checked in for the flight, we had no ticket for the first leg of the flight, but we had tickets for the remaining flights. We immediately called to fix this problem, but due to slow customer service, we weren't issued tickets in time and the flight left without us. We missed all remaining connecting flights and were forced to buy New tickets. Now we have to work with kayak/priceline to get all my money back due to their error. We came back a day later than expected and missed going back to work."
