Cons: "It was quite good"
Pros: "The crew were nice and boarding was smooth"
Cons: "the main meal was good, but it didn't come with much more. It didn't have water, dessert, or a side dish, it only came with the main meal, a piece of bread, and butter. The chair was not that comfortable, I've had a better sleep on other airlines for the same flight."
Cons: "There was no acknowledgment of Platinum status with Qantas. I do not expect anything special, and I usually just get a welcome back, but this time there was zero acknowledgment. The seat from DXB to HKG did not quite go “flat”. The upper half went as far back as, i’d say, around 170 degrees."
Pros: "No"

Cons: "Hard sandwhich"
Pros: "Nice aircraft"
Cons: "The food has alot Indian herbs & tasteless , unlike the lounge which has excellent taste."
Pros: "Aircraft was fantastic, great cabin crew helpful, toilets bigger than usual, seat space good. Thanks Emirates"
Cons: "I think Emirates should consider serving the cocktails/pre-meal drinks before the meal - after all, Gin and Tonic or Martinis just don't work during after meals. But this is minor gripe, the airline is great."
Pros: "I liked the cleanliness of the plane, the crew was attentive and friendly"

Pros: "I liked everything :) And the stuff was great I really enjoyed it ;)"
Pros: "nothing"
Cons: "I wasn't allocated the seats that I had pre booked by paying money. very annoying"
Pros: "My mother was the passenger Emirates & was her first experience flying alone, but having airline assistance. She marveled at their service & at every consideration to make flying alone as a senior seamless & worry-free. She was so happy of their thoughtfulness for carrying her luggage, driving her wheelchair, checking in for her w/her passport & picking up her luggage at the baggage round, that she tipped him $20. She made us sure that she would LOVE to fly alone back home again to the PH without us as long as she has airline assistance. A hint for us! She also liked how there was more foot room for economy seats than in Delta & EvaAir for this long trip & it helped her stretch her legs, as well as, the little Emirates pocket bag they give w/ear plugs & a eye mask with socks."
Cons: "She says that on her way to MNL from JFK (with the 1 stop at Dubai) the food was delicious. However on the way back home from MNL to JFK, the food was not good & she just slept all the way through."
Pros: "Staff did their best and were polite but ultimately had no solution for the issue"
Cons: "I was unable to get an aisle seat therefore I was stuck in an middle seat. I am rather tall and the man on the window seat was morbidly obese and half of him was sitting on top of me for most of the flight. He also sweated all over me, snoredand snorted for the whole flight. I spent much of the flight standing and now have terrible leg oedema. It was the most uncomfortable flight I've ever been on. the flight was full so there were no reseating options apparently. It was extremely unpleasant."
Pros: "Service is fantastic and all the amenities. They pretty much think of everything. The warm towels at the end of the flight, the travel bag for the long international trips were perfect. The staff is very welcoming and helpful and we were in economy so I can only imagine what it must be like in First Class! Also the free entertainment is phenomenal- wide range of choice. We also enjoyed the outside cameras that help you see views from the outside. Pretty cool!"
Cons: "Little more leg room. When the chair in front of younreclines ot gets a little tight."
Pros: "Reservation and boarding process are good. The condition of the aircraft is excellent. Onboard service is also good."
Cons: "The taste of food served was far below standard. I had hard time eating their food. Emirates used to serve better food in the past but in recent time the quality has worsen."
Cons: "I watched one movie, but the selection was pretty goo."
Pros: "The crew were friendly."
Cons: "wifi wasn't good - I couldn't connect. Wine choice wasn't good (white). Would have preferred a sav blanc"
Pros: "It was good services"
Pros: "A few of your flight crew were very nice and apologized for conditions. Free wine."
Cons: "Pissed poor equipment, awful food if that's what you call it, cramped environment. And the fact that on both out going and incoming flights I had things stolen from the over head compartments."
Pros: "Overall Emirates airlines is the best"
Pros: "i liked the neatness and welcome"
Cons: "i did not like the food"
Pros: "Flight attendants very very helpful in fixing some kind of mechanical error with my overhead light. When it was stuck on and the remote didn't work, they figured out they could reboot the system and turn it off. I'm glad I had my own headlamp so I could read during the flight, but overhead permanently off was much better than permanently on! I'm very grateful for their persistence in finding a solution. The agents at the Seattle location were very helpful assisting with our baggage problem, caused by Emirates gate agents in Dubai"
Cons: "The worst part of this trip was the surprise demand at the gate in Dubai that we check our duty-free liquor in a bag at the gate. There was no warning, no packaging to help protect our purchase, and no recourse We arrived in Seattle to find a liqour soaked bag. The liquor, of course, was a special gift and something we cannot simply repurchase. Very disappointing experience, especially after hearing good reviews of Emirate Air's generally good baggage handling and policies. The agents in Seattle helped remedy this, but it is a big hassle nonetheless as we arrive home to be dealing with damaged personal electronics and finding receipts all while jetlagged and getting back to work. my overhead light broke on the flight! but the flight attendants were very helpful and found a way to turn it off so I could sleep."
Pros: "Crew v good"
Cons: "Food .. Fish undercooked ... Aircraft bit dated"
Pros: "The movie selection is always good."
Cons: "The crew on this flight were rude which came as a shock to myself as I usually have a great experience flying with Emirates. I wish that was the case this time."
Pros: "There were a lot of different movies to watch. Also, the food was real good."
Pros: "Seating was comfortable and again great staff."
Pros: "Everything...the food was delicious, the staff was gracious and always went the extra mile."
Pros: "three main dishes. chicken. pasta. beef. I donot eat beef and pasta. I request her to give me chicken, but she told me that the chicken is finished. and donot ask me to take any other item."
Pros: "The flight from Dubai was fine. I am not a big fan of Dubai but their check-in and boarding process is efficient and straight forward."
Cons: "The food on this short flight was not very good and looked liked it had some age to it. I chose not to eat it."
Pros: "Once my wife reached the gate, having left me behind at security, Turkish Airlines waited and were patient with us, the last to board the plane. The food and plane and bathrooms were all without any problems."
Cons: "We had a 80 minute layover in Frankfurt. Turkish Airlines should make note that this is not sufficient for making a connection. 1. The terminals require extensive walking. Not a problem except for time. 2. Security entering the terminal was seriously understaffed. There were a hundred security personnel, but thousands of passengers. The line stretched for half a mile. 3. Cutting, disorganization, mismanagement, lack of organization, and airport layout all contributed to making this a very stressful hour for us."
Pros: "Sleeping accommodations, storage, crew attentiveness in business class was outstanding. 5he business lounge in Istanbul was the best ever. Great airline."
Pros: "The flying smooth, staff pleasant"
Cons: "No charging points, chairs not reclining, plane too small, toilets to far back. Didn't like the plane at all."
Pros: "The crew are very friendly and in general and the flight was very nice"
Cons: "Need to have a bigger seats"
Pros: "Perfect service. Perfect food. Best lounge. Flawless"
Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "I was disappointed that the two female flight attendants on my side (seats A&B) did not come across friendly, and any request appeared to be a bother. At one point I requested bread and butter, the flight attendant seemed annoyed and said if she can find some, and never came back to me. I went to the galley, where a male flight attendant was working on something. I requested some bread and butter from him, was met with s smile, and was able to locate a roll and butter for me in under a min. Please note, I do not think this was a gender issues, it just happens to be the situation with this case, and I specified it as I do not know the names of the flight attendants, but the airline should be able to identify who was working the different sections."
Pros: "Crew and service One of the flight attendant saved my daughter when she Was chucking on nuts , they went above and beyond Just duty and did everything in their power to save her"
Pros: "Super service clean nice airplane ✈️ departing arriving on time"
Pros: "Food"
Cons: "After bus arrived at steps kept on it 20 mins. 2 more buses arrived in this time. Still wait. Then let out all at once. Massive queues to board. Poeple not dressed for this. Poor babies crying Maybe 15 mins waiting in 2am cold on tarmac."
Pros: "great food! competent crew. all efficient and good."
Cons: "an extra beverage service in the middle of the flight would be nice, but that's okay."
Pros: "Entertainment , food, personal,"
Pros: "Service and team"
Pros: "Convenient. Good price."
Cons: "The flight from Istanbul to Alexandria showed departure time 1:30 am, but in reality, it departed at 12:30 am. It wasn't a problem for me but it was confusing."
Cons: "Not enough movie varities."
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."
Cons: "Sears in Boeing 777-300 are amaño and marroquí, Edith feedback space and unconfortable, worse if being sittedbin the Baco of the aircraft rows 40 yo 54"
Pros: "Everything."
Pros: "Service, hospitality, free internet movies food unlimited sandwich and cake, usb charging, clean restroom"
Pros: "Very organized and efficient."
Pros: "Best food I've had on an airplane, the warm towels before the first meal were a nice touch."
Cons: "Plane was a little warm at times, otherwise no complaints."
Pros: "Interior of the plane"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Offered us a free meal for the poor service."
Cons: "Old, uncomfortable plane. Took off 30-40 minutes late. Poor quality food. Circled Istanbul airport for 15 minutes without any communication. Flight arrived late, but no info. on connecting flights provided. At least eight passengers ran through the Istanbul airport to catch the connecting flight to Rome and, despite the fact that the plane was still at the gate, the gate staff person would not allow any of us on the flight. Customer service staff were unhelpful and had a negative attitude. The transfer were helpful."
Cons: "Food was dried out and tasteless"
Pros: "Great : food. Entertainment , service . Check in, laguage accommodation."
Cons: "In All my flights with them it is Sssoooo hot!!! They save on A/C??? I asked to cool the cabine - they did for 15 min and back to heat again . Managing seat assignment is impossible if you book through a website other than theirs . They don't have an "economy comfort " option"
Cons: "My bag did not make it to final destination & there was no excuse for it as there was enough time during layover AND I arrived to airport by required time before flight."
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"
Cons: "Crew was a bit rude on several occasions."
Pros: "Food is better than most and the personal touch screen entertainment center is top notch"
Cons: "When the person in front of you lounges back it's near impossible to eat your​ food or see the screen comfortably"
Cons: "Turkish airlines worth airlines ever. They change our flight from Houston to LA without giving us any choice because they are over booked with 30 passengers and on top gave us longer flight instead of sending us closer to our destination. They lost our bags and discover in LA that most of Turkish airlines passengers lost one of their bags too. we miss our flight from LA to Houston because of bad organizations and We had to sleep in LA one night so to take second day fight to Houston. So bad so frustrating never use Turkish airlines again."
Cons: "Took 4 hours to get to hotel in Istanbul with my old father, as no one helped or guided. Trying to get money back for the visa but no luck yet."
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: "Comfortable seats, a lot of legroom."
Cons: "Suttle to the air plane."
Pros: "The crew and their service was great, and there were lots of choices for entertainment."
Cons: "The seats are really uncomfortable. I'm young and healthy but my knees and back are in a lot of pain after the flight."
Pros: "The service and entertainment!"
Pros: "Crew was friendly and a pretty decent meal was served."
Cons: "The other passengers. :) Turkish was great, but the plane was only equipped with 90's in-seat entertainment."
Cons: "We stayed on plane for long time before it took off, and we arrived late, food was not good"
Cons: "Leg space a nighrmare!! Was uncomfortable for all the 13 hrs of the flight. Terrible experience"
Cons: "The sears are so uncofortable. Leg space tragic!!"
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 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: "Turkish delight and endless beverage service :)"
Pros: "Excellent service."
Cons: "Istanbul airport takes some getting used to."

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: "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"

Very cramped flight, overhead bins were all completely filled, and passengers had to fly with bags by their feet which was not very comfortable for me personally.

Travelling from Nigeria was a nightmare. Those thugs at the airport gave my husband and i hell because we had our boarding passes on our phone. We had to keep bribing and begging them to let us through. It is the worse travel experience I’ve ever ever had in my entire life. And I travel a lot

Dreamliner was comfortable and entertainment system good

Pros: "Very nice airplane and pleasant crew"
Cons: "Klm is the best, even on a 40min they served small breakfast."
Pros: "Very friendly and responsive crew. Announcements from the Capitan and chief of flight attendants are very informative and comforting. Seat positions: very good leg room (even in economy)!"
Cons: "Newer airplane, as 747s are kind of outdated now, especially for long distance flights. But overall had good experience with KLM"
Pros: "Confort and kindness"
Cons: "It was too cold"
Pros: "Professional crew. Good simple check in."
Cons: "Nothing."
Pros: "Excellent crew, good food & movie selection."
Pros: "KLM never disappoints, the cabin crew was extremely kind and helpful!. The food was great, nice leg room in regular economy class, thousands of movies and tv shows...it was great!"
Cons: "Well there was a LOT of turbulence but no one can control the weather and shout out to the pilot for giving us such a smooth landing a rough weather!"
Pros: "The bed was comfortable. Entertainment selection and large TV screen was good. The KLM crew is amazing, as usual."
Cons: "Food quality was not so good."

Pros: "Lovely crew, very helpful"
Cons: "N/A"
Pros: "Crew was good"
Cons: "Food"
Pros: "The service"
Cons: "The food."
Pros: "They considered my reguest of vegiterian food."
Cons: "I have no complaints."
Pros: "The flight started with a visit in the recently renovated KLM crown lounge in Amsterdam airport. I liked the various seating options and of course the upstairs bar. The service on board was attentive and efficient, the food options I really liked (especially the Chinese dish) but also the little touches like the nuts & gouda cheese which were served in small porcelain bowls. The seat itself was very comfortable when sitting and the structure gives a lot of privacy. However for couples or friends travelling it's a bit cumbersome to have a conversation even when sitting in seats next to each other. Overall my expectations were fulfilled."
Cons: "This seat is not ideal for sleeping for taller persons (I'm 185cm tall) as the space to put the feet is very narrow and it's uncomfortable when lying on the back (as one cannot put them in the natural resting position). Cabin temperature could have been a bit lower for my taste. Crew needs better training with regards to transfer procedure in Chengdu."
Pros: "And i got it 2 days later. I had to buy a lot of items which were in my suitcase The returning of the suitcase was awfull. In tge end after many phone calls I received it On the 18/12 evening, 2 days after my landing"
Cons: "Flight canceled, poor communication from the airline to the passengers. Møre than 5 hrs delay"
Pros: "The service"
Cons: "The seats"
Cons: "Services was pretty weird .. Perse or crew Leader was ok But the assistent Young one was Really bad.. aptitud and not friendly at all."
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."
Pros: "Comfort was better than on the previous Dash-8. Food was OK."
Cons: "Despised the cold temperature and cold draft in world business even with all vents shut off...gave me a head cold. Boarding was disorganized. There was no sense of direction; ergo, everyone was jumping in."
Pros: "I am so grateful to have been provided delicious and filling vegan meals on this long flight. Thank you for offering a dietary option that is compassionate toward animals and contributes less to climate change! Now if only the planes were powered by clean, renewable energy... Hopefully that will become a reality someday very soon! Oh, and also the crew on this flight was exceptionally kind and helpful. Thank you so much!"
Cons: "I did not enjoy the turbulence, which I suppose is unavoidable. More importantly, I felt quite guilty about the greenhouse gas emissions of my flight. I have decided to cut down on my air travel as much as possible as a way of reducing my carbon footprint."
Pros: "Good entertainment options. Nice flight attendants"
Cons: "It would be helpful for short people to be able to adjust the head rest lower on the seat. More recent released movies would be helpful. More leg room. Not charging more money to choose seats."
Pros: "We were fed a nice pasta meal and offered drinks twice. They also gave a muffin for desert. The flight attendants were very nice and attentive with cheerful smiles. I wish every airline had service this good!"
Cons: "Boarding was very confusing. There was an area where they were checking people's bags or something near the gate and you didn't know if you needed to stop at it or continue. They didn't collect garbage before landing. Not only did we have to take our bags off the plane, we had to carry our garbage (drink cups/food served) to the front of the plane to throw out."
Cons: "Our total flight time was about 17 hours - MAD- AMS-LAX. My husband and I both have an internationally approved carry on luggages with us. When we checked in - they asked us to both check in our carry on luggage. The reason why is because they said they don’t think they have enough space for our carry ons. I told the crew member checking us in that other people that was checking in with the same hand carry size luggage with us had no problems taking it with them. For being about to be on a 17 HOUR FLIGHT we should be ALLOWED to have our carry ons with us! We take carry ons for that reason! I had to argue and prove my case to the crew member to atleast keep 1 carry on with us. I thought that was an UNACCEPTABLE reason for us to check in a carry on luggage when we had a 17 hour travel time ahead of us. Not a happy costumer here."
Pros: "Really friendly staff. Great service"
Pros: "Premium economy service was good."
Cons: "Inexplicably, our preassigned seats were changed at checkin and we were put in bulkhead. This particular Boeing aircraft is pretty poorly designed. Especially the bulkhead in premium economy."
Pros: "Very friendly service!"
Cons: "Bag was lost"
Pros: "Very friendly staff"
Pros: "The cabin crew were good. They explained what the arrangements were for the delayed flight connections"
Cons: "The plane wasn't refueled and so was not ready for take off once the passengers were loaded. The plane had a technical problem when it tried the first take off and so it had to be abandoned. This was alarming.."
Pros: "Flight was lovely, crew were friendly and very helpful and food was delicious!! We travelled with assistance for mum and it was excellent and we were kept updated all through the flight."
Pros: "Excellent experience with the cabin crew."
Cons: "Seats on the 777 were too narrow. This 777 had a 3-4-3 seating arraignment, it would have been better with a 3-3-3, similar to a 787 configuration. With the current layout, even with an aisle seat, I was sitting in the aisle. And I am not a large person! The flight was full, so use the 787 and two daily non-stops. For a twelve hour flight, the food was only Okay, could have been better and with a better selection. Meal timing was poor."
Pros: "Cabin Crew was awesome."
Cons: "Entertainment System was not working and no Non-veg food option in flight."
Pros: "Equally friendly crew and experience. It was complimented by the time we got to spend in the fantastic KLM lounge while we waited for the flight."
Cons: "Nothing!"
Cons: "OLD plane without comfort or entertainment"
Pros: "The cabin crew, the flight and communication and the cleanliness of the plane."
Cons: "It was really unclear which desk to use at Birmingham airport to check in. It was extremely stressful for a first time flier as I had no idea what to do - the desk location wasn't marked clearly and when no staff were there it wasn't clear that the desk was open."
Pros: "The staff was fast and curteous."
Cons: "There is not anything to complain about besides the usual discomfort of travel."
Pros: "staff hospitality, cleanness of the cabin and toilet and punctuality of the flight"
Cons: "lack of meal options"
Pros: "delayed"
Pros: "Enough space good wine and on time"
Cons: "Nothing"
Cons: "Luggage (being handled by Air France in Basel) was first marked as delayed... nothing of the flight was in the end put on the belt and instead dropped off at Lost and Found. Ridiculous service since this was in no way announced to the people waiting for their suitcase."
Pros: "It was very comfortable"
Cons: "The crew was great"
Pros: "I liked the leg room, I liked the customer service of the crew, smooth flight."
Cons: "Both ways up and down I struggled with over-head luggage space. We were allowed a cabin bag and a small hand-bag in the flight but as we were among the last half of the passengers to board the flight we couldn't find anywhere to keep our luggage and the crew had to take them away from us to store them somewhere at the back far away from our seats. As a result we had to wait until all the passengers got off the plane to get back our luggage and we were the last two passengers to get off. Unpleasant!"

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: "The crew is nice"
Cons: "No respect of distancing the seats ; all the seats were occupied. No wifi"
Pros: "Seats ok. Crew is super. Drinks offered"
Cons: "Nothing, AF rocks"
Cons: "Delay in take off 45 min!!!!"
Pros: "n/a"
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."
Pros: "Nothing"
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"
Cons: "Nothing"
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."
Cons: "Not boarding on tarmac via bus. Sandwich - tartar sauce and “chicken” - with two quarter sized pieces of meat was terrible."
Pros: "The whole crew is so kind"
Cons: "Delta made my whole first flying experience the best."
Pros: "Late departure, dirty, staff not friendly."
Pros: "Crew was very friendly and seat in KQ is super comfortable in Business."
Pros: "The crew was nice and the seat comfortable."

Pros: "crew great comfortable"
Pros: "Yes"
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: "Just a routine flight but done with perfect execution."
Cons: "Nothing."
Pros: "Service and crew are great"
Cons: "Seats"
Pros: "Staff was so helpful and attentive to our needs.Providing service with a smile."
Cons: "Na"
Pros: "Fast and efficient boarding and friendly and efficient staff. Landed 15min ahead of schedule."
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: "Courteous crew"
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: "Boarding and such was straightforward and easy"
Cons: "Everything is uncomfortable"
