The flight from Rome to Ams was delayed. The flight from AMS to Moscow was missed. - We spent 2h in a linewaiting for the service desk to rebook the tickets - Then, we spend more than an hour to get the hotel - Then waiting for the shuttle another 30 minutes Unexpectedly poor and slow service. The next working day is ruined with the flight in the middle

They canceled our flights that went on anyway.

No hay un teléfono a donde hablar, la web está desactualizada y con información equivocada. Direccionan a usar canales de twitter y facebook que no responden. Primer experiencia en KLM y no pienso nunca más usar esta aerolínea. Llevar el equipaje o resolver un problema sobre valijas es de lo más básico de una aerolínea y no lo hacen."

No online check-in, so not ideal for business travellers having to queue to check-in at Zurich airport

Boarding and online chkin was very good, food was not to the expectations.

Poor communication from boarding staff, airport staff not a clue. Communication on board was un decipherable and airline lost baggage.

Pros: "La ponctualité."
Cons: "Variété des boissons proposées."
Pros: "Clean plane , good crew ,"
Cons: "they didn't load my baggage from flight 1 to 2"
Pros: "Upgrade was easy! Crew was beyond exceptionable! Can’t wait to fly again, guys!"

Cons: "Lack of ventilation in cabin, and staff refusal to turn heaters down (in September), very limited entertainment options."
Pros: "Entertainment programs"
Cons: "New variety of food"
Pros: "Great crew and entertainment. Terrible experience at CDG airport but that’s the airports fault."
Cons: "No leg room at all, cant believe those seats met legal standard. The plane smelled, boarding was a nightmare because too many people had big bags. An announcement had been madd that vags would be collected, but obviously were not."
Cons: "Our request for vegetarian meals got lost after a glight was cancelled."
Pros: "Crew was nice."
Cons: "Food could be better, or at least be provided an option to purchase an upgraded meal. Also, insufficient amount of drinking water provided to passengers."
Pros: "The gate reps from CDG to MSP were professionals. The cabin crew on the Delta flight were exceptional! This was not my experience in Copenhagen with the Air France staff, they seemed to be self centered and rude."
Cons: "Delta please make excellence a priority in all areas of customer service. Set high standards for staff so customers know that you appreciate them and are ready for business. The world is at the customer's fingertips, let their first choice be Delta. When their are bad days, customers will understand"
Pros: "Air France has the best crews! They really go the extra mile."
Cons: "My skis were lost on the way to Riga and had to be delivered 2 days later to Vilnius. That said, the situation was handled very professionally."
Cons: "Better in flight entertainment"
Cons: "Air conditioning too cold. Wasn't offered an evening meal. My luggage went missing and I'm still waiting for it to be delivered."
Pros: "I did like Flying with Delta and Air France but not with Ukrainian airlines (when booking , it should tell you what airlines will be used , to make a better selection )"
Cons: "When I purchased my flight ticket , I purchased with a checked bag (23 kg /50 #) how ever ( who will fly to Ukraine with a 10kg suitcase) I booked for a KLM flight , they used (partener airlines ) when I arrived to LA I flew with Delta , they checked my Suitcase at no cost all the way to my final destinations , that was expected ! When I was going to return , they made me payed 120 dollars ( in Kiev , Ukraine (UIA) , I was very disappointed and I really will love an explanation about all this !"
Pros: "Extremely hot the plane"
Pros: "Flight was on time."
Cons: "Food could have been much better in comparison with other airlines."
Cons: "Missed the flight due to late landing from earlier connection"
Pros: "The Air France service was ok. Got me to my destination on time and alive."
Cons: "I flew out on KLM on what felt like a new plane. Amazing service, seat, temperature, entertainment and food. In stark comparison Air France’s plane was old, too hot, poor entertainment choices and system and average food which for the French was surprising!"
Pros: "Flight on time"
Cons: "The usual Air France flights to Rome, that I have been flying for years, are now operated by Joon. For a couple months nothing changed, except the way the crew dressed. But now Joon is showing its true nature as a LOW COST airline.Seats cramped. Snacks and apple juice are now available for purchase only."
Pros: "Great service"
Pros: "Very quiet"
Cons: "We were in the last few rows on a turbulent route. The yaw damper constantly overcorrected, resulting in lots of side to side motion for the passengers"
Pros: "More experienced, professional crew, better food and service."
Cons: "A screaming child for 8 hours (understood this is not their fault, but it did make the journey unpleasant). Old aircraft with small screens, no power etc."
Pros: "Food was good and again, staff were friendly and professional. Flight was on time and efficient dis-embark mentioned."
Cons: "Slight issue with headphone connection, was not the only passenger."
Cons: "The food was the worst airline food I have ever been served. I could not eat it. This is very disappointing for an airline like AirFrance which usually serves very good meals."
Pros: "I like fly attendant who served us meal"
Cons: "I didn’t like that space between each seat is small"
Pros: "Boarding for BUsiness class was fine. Seating was cramped."
Cons: "As I said in my rating, seating was cramped. Food was mediocre. Crew was pleasant."
Pros: "Food and service was good and price was acceptable"
Cons: "Very long route"
Pros: "Priority boarding with kids"
Cons: "Nothing special just like easyJet ir Rayanair"
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: "Standard on most parts with pleasant staff"
Cons: "Flight was 1/2hr with poor pre-flight communication on the topic. Food wise, the chocolate cookie was better than nothing...but a little savory snack would have been nice."
Cons: "Its been a week. My trip has ended. I still do not have my bags. Terrible customer service."
Cons: "The room between seats is unbearable."
Pros: "Everything was very prefect and would love to fly again."
Cons: "NA"
Pros: "It was Amazing staff helpfull and fresh.. love it"
Cons: "Flight of almost 3 hours was not entreteiment at all just magazines."
Cons: "Had to check in our underweight small carry on because there was no space left. Left out hotel at 3.15am. A dry croissant did not satisfy three hungry children for breakfast, the coffee was terrible and the seats too close together. Not a good experience."
Pros: "Leg room is bigger than average, there is also a foot step which helps you to relax."
Cons: "There must be lice on the plane, either from the customer or on the seats. Got bitten 6 times on the leg and butt!!! And this is not the first time hearing same story, Air France definitely needs to disinfect the plane more thoroughly. Media center is outdated, touch screen isn’t working well, felt being punched in head every time when ppl behind you tries to touch the screen!"
Cons: "Air France lost my luggage and they can't find it in the computer system."
Pros: "Not much."
Cons: "It was one problem after another during check in. And it was difficult to find help in English so I couldn't really tell what was going on. In the end I was tucking to get checked in because they were insisting I use a kiosk but I was telling them that the kiosk said to see an attendee. It was not efficient and I felt like a burden asking for help when there was nothing else I could do on my own."
Pros: "Great crew"
Cons: "Food could be a bit better. White bread is unhealthy."
Pros: "There was enough leg room"
Cons: "The food was not very nice and the aircraft was really cold."
Pros: "Lovely crew, clean toilets"
Cons: "It's an a380, stains everywhere, aisles between seats narrow even for business, caos at CDG, no clear queues, ground staff shout at passengers, food selection good but huge gap between describtion and reality, in JFK we waited for 30 minutes cause the docking spot was too narrow for the captain, sky priority? The economy got their bags before 1st and business."
Pros: "Cheap aircraft, not even headsets"
Cons: "Dirty aircraft, I expect more when I pay a lot"
Pros: "Movie selection was awesome! Food was good too."
Cons: "Too many interruptions. Every time there's an announcement, it interrupts the movies and some of the announcements were completely unnecessary and there were so many of them, it was like constant interruptions, really annoying."
Pros: "I didn't feel cramped in a Window Seat. Two meals were served during the flight. It was nice to get back to being fed something other than skippy snacks on an airline flight."
Cons: "I was ignored over and over again as ice cream, drinks and snacks were offer by the crew. It would have been nice if some would ask me before falling asleep if I wanted to be roused for snacks and desserts. After being on back to back flights of more than 10 hours each it would be considerate for the crew to be aware of my length of travel and to make sure they don't assume my resting my eyes is the same as me being asleep. Even when I was awake it appeared I was being overlooked, ignored and left out of complimentary services I saw other receiving....my bad for not asking to be noticed."
Pros: "Boarding was quick and efficient. Flight attendants are always very friendly and attentive on Air France flights."
Cons: "Vegetarian food choices always leave much to be desired."
Pros: "Good entertainment"
Cons: "For the continuation of this flight of course I was still in the same seat in the middle and I had signed up and reserved an aisle seat"
