Long trip.

Long trip.

Choosing Indigo was the worst thing that I did for an international connection. The staff is not at all helpful and they had 2 hours delay leading to issues with my connecting flight in Doha. Baggage didn’t arrive in my final destination. Total chaos and food was terrible. Will never fly indigo again unless I have to.

Very lethargic, lazy, rude process to check-in and board the plane. The staff is not well trained or has no care for customer service or any decency at all. First time flying Qatar airways after hearing so many good things about the airline, however the experience was awful!

The service was top notched. Crew was very nice

They didn’t announce priority boarding at all. Needed to walk up and check at gate

Did not get bassinet seat for my infant. Qatar airways sold the bassinet seat to adults and we travelled with our infant on our lap

This flight was cancelled

Excellent

Pros: "Great crew! Excellent business class suite"
Pros: "Crew was good"
Cons: "Tvs don’t work. Uncomfortable seats"
Pros: "Perfect"
Cons: "Perfect"
Cons: "They do not understand the word priority at Doha airport. Business class passengers boarded last."
Pros: "N/A"
Cons: "We were told to board, but then kept in another area close on 1 hour before we could get on the plane and this area had no bathroom facilities. The spread of seating on the plane made no sense with many open seats but also many squashed rows of people. The crew was visibly tired and irritated, they also ran out of a few catering items. It seemed as if last minute, a few different flights were combined into this one which lowered the quality."
Cons: "Too much A/C, feel cold."
Pros: "Food and leg room"
Cons: "All was fine"
Pros: "Discount offer"
Cons: "N/A"
Cons: "The vegetarian option for breakfast was a stale waffle with apple compote. Inedible."
Pros: "Food selection. However, the snacks need to be readily available on long flights."
Cons: "Entertainment is lacking behind other international carriers"
Pros: "Seat was comfortable and entertainment selection was good."
Cons: "More snacks on a long flight would be good. Hot chocolate instead of tea and coffee would be appreciated by non-tea/coffee drinkers."
Pros: "I already paid for seat and amount debited but it was not booked when i check in I want my money to be refunded soon"
Cons: "Providing better food and movie"
Pros: "Service"
Pros: "Arrived early in Budapest. Good leg room."
Cons: "Not enough toilets for length of flight and number of passengers! Always a long queue. Long bus journey from terminal to plane."
Pros: "The crew were very friendly and helpful."
Cons: "It seems the major airlines use older aircraft when the destination of the flight is a third world country(or Africa). The seats aren't as comfortable and the entertainment system (screens) are not as good as a Qatar and Europe bound flights."
Pros: "The flights attendants were very helpful and polite. What I enjoyed the most was the level of comfort I had. I was able to sleep for almost the entire flight. That's why it felt like it wasn't even a long flight."
Cons: "We did leave a little late but it was out of the control of the pilots and flights attendants."
Pros: "There was adequate seat room. The device was good."
Cons: "There was nothing I didn’t like."
Pros: "Staff was great"
Pros: "Thank you for a very good flight experience both from Philadelphia to Doha and Doha to Johannesburg."
Cons: "The breakfast options could have been better, but I was fed and happy, and the flight attendant was kind enough to bring me green tea when it wasn’t readily available on the cart."
Cons: "Seat didnt fit to me."
Cons: "most of us sitting in and around me didn't get any rest or sleep as we had a passenger who had a psychotic breakdown and was screaming and poking everyone. She sprinkled me with water severally, I hope we get some sort of compensation from Qatar airways for this terrible disturbance"
Cons: "Seat to LA was broken"
Pros: "I was surprised with the quality of gluten free meals served for me, it was well organised and taken care of where I never had to wait. My flight schedules were changed few days before departure by Qatar Airways, but only thing I had to do was to confirm that I have noted, my seats and all the rest of details intact, excellent."
Cons: "When the flight is changed by airline for their convenience, they would have given preferential treatment to the passengers involved. We had to bare the cost of food and make us comfortable on our own due to the delay in transit."
Pros: "Good service but need to improve food quality and quantity."
Pros: "Stewards were great"
Cons: "No complaints for this leg of the journey. Entertainment options were mediocre as all legs of my journey had the identical offerings and i pretty much watched all of it in my round trip almost 48 hours of total on plane time."
Pros: "I love this app , it's awesome it's save my money and time"
Pros: "The crew aboard the flight were kind and thoughtful and definitely oriented toward service."
Cons: "The security process at the gate was really disorderly. Perhaps it is because it is a new and extra step required by the US but it was definitely not efficiently handled."
Cons: "Same as above"
Pros: "The friendliness of the staff from check in to arrival!"
Pros: "I freceuntly fly between the US and South Africa and only fly via Qatar Airways, and every experience thus far has been great. The food is good quality, friendly crew and I would recommend it to anyone."
Cons: "The sandwiches are a little dry and movie selection a little limited."
Pros: "The movie selection was good."
Cons: "-my seat did not recline, which I understand that I was close to the emergency exit but the person in front of me could still put their seat back way farther than they should be able to and I was unable to do simple things like put my glass of water on my tray -I had a vegetarian meal which was literally just rice and ground up brown mush-I have no idea what that much was -I asked twice for new headphones because my was broken but they forgot -When the flight attendant was coming around with water and she looked me to see if I wanted any and I said yes, she just skipped over me. I didn't pay a few hundred dollars extra for this."
Pros: "Unfortunately..."
Cons: "...as mentioned, I don't have the pleasure of rating this flight because of the boarding delays and missing the flight. Very disappointing."
Pros: "Great selection of movies and tv shows"
Cons: "Entertainment screen is too dim even on highest brightness setting"
Pros: "Service of air stewards very friendly and polite"
Cons: "This goes for Qatarfigjta from harare to Doha and Doha to Washington DC and back. I am not going to give individual report on each one. Food - my daughter could barely eat anything and the vegetarian meals were stone cold most of time. It was hard to eat at Qatar airport because not only is the food terrible (Burger King and bad Asian food) but outrageously expensive. Our media system did not work for one leg. ** way to many ads on your media system. Every time you watch a new TV episode, you have to sit through 5-6 ads for stuff that is not interesting and the same each time. ** plane info on media system keeps reverting to Arabic even when English is indicated as preferred la gauge. We had to place our iPads in checked luggage for flights from harare to USA as we went through Qatar. *** I asked for quiet seats and was given seats near kitchen and toilet even though I booked in hours in advance. One leg had my ten year old daughter and I in different rows even though I checked in 4-5 hours in advance Of flight . ** staff moved my hand luggage without my permission and without informing me - it was stressful trying to find it."
Pros: "Excellent experience overall, the food was decent, the seats were comfortable and had enough space for me at 6ft tall, the staff were very friendly and helpful, entertainment selection was good with plenty of new movies out. I had no problems with my layover. The baggage allowance was great as I had extra luggage from my trip. I'm very happy with their customer service, the day before my first flight I received a phone call from Qatar's customer service saying that due to delays I wouldn't be able to make my connecting flight to Edinburgh so they would like to book me on another flight instead of me having to wait 24 hours in Doha. I was thoroughly impressed with this service."
Cons: "I did not have wifi available from Doha-Johannesburg"
Pros: "Timely response on the phone."
Cons: "Timely response on the phone."
Pros: "Great crews, excellent airplanes, wonderful in transit experince."
Cons: "In flight coach meals were average."
Pros: "Staff was excellent"
Cons: "More selection or choices like international food not like focus on Indian food"
Pros: "On time departure, friendly crew. Comfortable seats for economy class, plenty of entertainment options. A pleasant experience"
Cons: "The food was okay. The hot wrap/calzone served first was not very tasteful. The breakfast/brunch was better. Not much to dislike overall."
Pros: "Again on time and effortless boarding made the overall experience a good one."
Cons: "Our suitcase was damaged...still in the process of trying to get it fixed. Hopefully it will be done soon. I will then update this report. Could maybe clean the toilets as it did become a bit messy."
Pros: "It was just am awesome experience. By God's grace we had a safe trip and God helped us. Interestingly, Qatar airways is quite excellent and commendable in their professional disposition."
Pros: "It was not a full flight. It was ok."
Cons: "Well, I noticed when the person in front of me reclined their seat, I had a hard time adjusting the entertainment screen so I could see it properly."

The flight was really hot, I am not sure why but there weren’t any air vents for the seats. We had to use our own personal fans to stay cool. The entertainment system was pretty old and hasn’t been updated in a long time. The touch screen wasn’t responsive at all.

Everething was exellant

Cons: "No coffee no tea. Disgusting."
Cons: "More space and room"
Cons: "My bags were misplaced I have to wait for an extra day to get it"
Pros: "Great service! Food was very good."
Cons: "That boarding. People who were not in line rushed to the front when boarding started."
Cons: "too good a airline .I recommend this to all passengers travelling"
Pros: "Really like the airline, sat in the front rim of economy. My husband is over 6ft and he was happy with the leg space. As was I since we flew right our 1 and a half year old boy."
Pros: "Everything was good... nice and neat crew, airplane clean and comfortable, good service food was good."
Cons: "The bathrooms are way and far back... and we are not allow to use Business Class."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Seats are not very comfortable. Narrow and hard."
Cons: "Trip delay"
Cons: "Seats are too cramped and not enough leg room. Plus our seats did not recline which is painful on a 10 hour flight. The flight attendants and front desk workers had an attitude as well."
Pros: "almost nothing"
Cons: "The same food every time and its not high quality - even in Business class. The business class seats are uncomfortable, they don't recline far enough or provide adequate leg and foot support. The breakfast is not good at all and they seem to fry or provide stale croissants and danishes - they are always so hard and difficult to eat. the flight is always delayed and boarding chaotic."
Pros: "Nothing Really Nothing"
Cons: "1. Flight late from Berlin to Istanbul. 2. That's mean missing my next flight from Istanbul to Riyadh. 3. I add extra baggage in TKL Airport : my original bag is 23 kg I have until 32kg, The extra baggage was 20kg, So I pay 247 Euro each extra kg 19 Euro. 4. In Istanbul airport they said your next flight tomorrow at 20pm. 5. I have important meeting in morning and my jop in the evening. 6. They changed my teket from turkish airline to Saudi airline 4.00pm, That's mean no different. 7. I ask about my baggage in turkish airline deck they said don't worry every thing will be okay. 8. I ask for hotel they said you have to make visa cost 60 dollars and you know I have to pay taxi and Chang money... Pla Pla, Actually this is not respecting and very bad organization. 9. I didn't make visa and stay from that time until 3.pm in primum lungs. 10. I went to Saudi airline deck to take my boarding. 11. They said you have extra baggage, I explain them that I payed already to turkish airline. 12. They said you have to go back to turkish airline deck about this extra kg's. 13. I did going back to them they said we cannot do anything, leave one bag here and we send the other one later. Actually this stupid airline and this stupid employee's dealing with me like a stupid, all my time I walk every where in that stupid airport, they just gives me orders and I have to follow like it was my mistake. 14. I showed my alfursan membership to Saudi airline deck and they helped me. 15. When I arrived to Riyadh my baggage wasn't there, this is mean that this stupid turkish people that the have to work on barbcue and haircut, but airports jop needs professional people. That's was my first and last flight with them."
Pros: "Always excellent"
Pros: "Food and entertainment were good."
Cons: "Ground staff very unhelpful and arrogant. Wanted to upgrade to business class and the representative who served me was very rude and unhelpful. Boarding was through buses which was inefficient and messy. My trip was 11 hours of flying time. Economy seating is super tight and legroom awful. For long haul flights they must be more generous in terms of seat size and legroom."
Pros: "Everything is included! No extra fees!"
Cons: "Turkish air had great service, food, entertainment and nice comfortable planes. Left on time and arrived on time. Two unrelated issues at Miami airport they didn't have a separate line for the people holding global entry and at the Istanbul airport no info desks to direct passenger to their connecting flight"
Cons: "Sloppy cabin crew at the time of embarkation. Bad entertainment system (horrible touch screen, earphones with loose contact), made a 7 hours trip an unforgettable experience. Food quality was marginal. A drastic contrast with the previous flight of the same airline company (but from Amsterdam to Istanbul), which was very good."
Pros: "Everything"
Pros: "Crew attendance"
Cons: "No place for hand luggage"
Pros: "Flight was delayed. Flight time was changed 5 times."
Cons: "The broke my baggage. I have been flying a lot lately and never had any issues until I flew with Turkish Airlines. They are incredibly unorganized, late, gave headphones just so I could watch a map since nothing else was being played for some reason, etc. I won't be flying them again."
Pros: "Our flight attendant were very nice, efficient, and on top of everything."
Cons: "it was such a good experience. I liked everything"
Cons: "The "Pasta-cheeze" meal on TK 31 was horribly bland, reminded me of the gruesome meals I had on United Airlines. I was totally shocked, because all other meals were excellent."
Pros: "Like my trip to Istanbul, I had no complaints. It was easy to make my transition to this flight and boarding was fine and once again the crew were friendly and welcoming. The short 2 1/2 hour flight went well."
Pros: "We arrived at the desk and no staff or customers were there. Turns out they don't fly on Thursdays. What? So we rebooked and will fly out tonight. Overall, a huge inconvenience for my family waiting for us overseas. Plus we had to book a place to stay in Miami for the next 24 hours. Whew!"
Pros: "Flight attendants greeted on arrival. Prompt with service. Good attitudes."
Cons: "Seats not to comfortable but can't really change that without upgrade."
Pros: "Could put a bag under the seat. Advanced AV options. Food was OK."
Cons: "Cabin was too hot. I complained and they adjusted it. The seat really doesn't go back much at all."
Pros: "Electronics confiscated from passengers (all passengers, no profiling or consideration for who is dangerous and who is not, which is NOT WHAT I LIKED, I hated it, this political correctness, so everyone "suffers the same", while bad guys still have all the freedom to do terrible things. It is not a security, it is a stupid put on!) but at least our electronics were carefully packed and delivered to Boston. It took whole hour afterwards to retrieve them!!! Terribly inefficient."
Cons: "Stupid, completely idiotic security, caused, of course, by our completely idiotic president Trump rulings, but... Turkish air workers took this stupidity up to an unseen levels. I fight stage 4 cancer, it requires timely medicine. I was not allowed to take on board several critical supplements because they were either in powder, granulated or liquid form (all in their original medical packaging), my custom made crocheting hook was labeled as a dangerous weapon and I was not allowed to take it on board either, so I had no means to alleviate my air flight anxiety. they were going to confiscate and throw it away. Cold "sorry for your loss" was their only reply. They tried to scare me by calling police. Extremely impolite personnel. It took almost two hours, when TA security threaten that I won't fly, to make them pack this little darn crocheting hook together with my iPad. Funny that food on board comes with real metal silverware, forks and knifes included, which are far more convenient and dangerous if I was to use it as a weapon in comparison to a hook (3 inch wooden handle and 1 nah of a metal shaft ending with a small blunt hook, thin - size 2). TA said they provide us with free wifi to compensate for confiscated electronics. I was not able to connect to that wifi all flight long. Movie selection is below mediocre, little choice, practically no quality. Food is bad - not appropriate for my condition at all, but of course I can't bring on board cancer-appropriate food - security labels it as a threat to passengers. No leg room at all for a medium-built lady like myself, can't imagine what thicker or taller people do to survive 9+ hours flight, seats do not recline, pull out tables are of terrible quality- very unstable, so food and drinks fall off even without turbulence, just because of no leg room our knees are always interfere with these flimsy tables. With a comfort and restrictions like I had tickets must cost not a penny over a bus or metro ride, not hundreds of $$. It took about two hours to get my suitcase too - they said our luggage had to go through a second inspection before it gets onto baggage carousel. All in all, I will avoid TA for long flights by all means. Never again. They were an huge downshift to my perfect vacation. I had to go to an emergency treatment today because of the way TA treated me yesterday. Unfortunately, I can't measure how much yesterday's abuse advanced my disease, I am disturbed and frustrated enough to go to court to bring a suit against... yet again, those imbeciles from security do have a good alibi - their actions were triggered by US government regulations."
Pros: "I always enjoy flying with Turkish airlines it is a breeze from check in all the way destination from food to entertainment it all runs so smooth I will fly with u any day so far that is the best"
Pros: "Service is excellent. Ground support was okay, not overly friendly."

Pros: "The inflight service was wonderful. Business class comfort is excellent with full lie flat seats, Crew was attentive. My special vegetarian food was very good using the usual airline fare I receive."
Cons: "The arrival into Istanbul was marked by a major inconvenience unnecessary anxiety, extra expense and frustration. On deplaning from a flight from Barcelona, a Turkish Airlines employee was checking boarding cards the connectivity flight and directed people to the appropriate exits for domestic and international connection. We had a connection to JFK and tried to enter the exit for international connections. She insisted that we go to the domestic exit despite my telling her we had an international connection. This led to passport control which had never occurred to me anywhere in the world when making an international connection. Next problem - I was told I needed a visa! My travel partner did not need a visa and was already through passport immigration control. The officer did not speak English and pointed in the direction I needed to go to get a via. I told him I did not want or need a visa but that was it! I started to look for the visa application area and there was no staff or anyone to help. Finally I found 4 kiosks for e-visas - only one worked. 20 plus dollars later I had the visa and immigrated. We quickly reverse the process and went though security and passport control to get back inside the international terminal. It was nuts! The boarding in Istanbul was crowded and chaotic."
Pros: "Entertainment options"
Cons: "There was no food for me and my wife. I don't eat Beaf or Fish and wife is a pure vegetarian. We placed our special order during booking but were told that we had to inform the airline 1 day before to make special order booking. Leg space is very less in flights."

Pros: "Crew with genuine smile. Delicious food."

Pros: "Always on time....no delays."
Cons: "nothing"

Excellent crew service and attitude. Excellent in flight facilities

Boarding started late but flight landed on time. Plane was fully packed and initially AC was not upto comfort level.

Good flight and service.

Too crowded. Stale almonds. Boarding very slow. Crew was friendly and helpful. Flight was smooth and uneventful.

Upgraded to Comfort plus with three across on aisle and wall in front of us. When I went to restroom near end of flight I saw seats available all over. We could have been more comfortable if the seats were more equitably assigned or if flight attendants said something And movie crashed. We love Delta, but have had better flights.

Pros: "On time!"
Cons: "More snack options"
Pros: "Awesome crew and great flight"

Pros: "Not a lot"
Cons: "Customer service"
Cons: "Worst airplane i have been on since 2007"
Pros: "The staff handled the situation very well."
Cons: "The delays put me arriving at 4am. Missed a half day of work, and was practically useless the last half of the day. I understand things go wrong, but they blamed the weather and the other airlines were getting planes in and out just fine. Even Frontier Airlines at least offers a meal voucher for del"
Cons: "Stop charging for checked bags"
Cons: "Missed flight due to unnecessary delays"
Pros: "good service"
Cons: "I was assigned a seat on the last row of the plane--these not only don't recline, but it feels as though they push you forward. Also, the engine sound was so deafening with such intense vibration that I was unable to hear the flight attendant speaking to me from 2 feet away, much less anything overh"
Pros: "Super comfortable seats. Lots of movie options."
Cons: "Food was not very good"
Cons: "I understand when weather is rough not moving the beverage carts but a small bottle of water would be appreciated."
Cons: "Change my seat when I was boarding. I already had my seat # assigned before boarding. Sat next to a man with a strong body odor. I came down with a sore throat last night so I was feeling pretty bad. Then to endure a long flight with that smell which made my trip very uncomfortable."
Pros: "The crew friendly and very helpful, food was amazing aircraft was clean. Very happy thank you"
Pros: "I liked that military boarded first."

Pros: "Good abording"
Cons: "problems with seating assignment"
Cons: "Food was terrible, for first class they need to up the standards"
Pros: "The crew was gracious and accommodating."
Cons: "The plane showed wear and tear. We paid for delta+ premium economy and an exit row. The seating map online was misleading and we ended up next to the bathroom. The exit row food tray was broken and was hard to even sit a good tray on. The emergency exit door isn’t well insulated and we were absolutely freezing cold the entire flight. The seats were hard and uncomfortable. The food was not good for international travel. Overall I was very disappointed in this flight. I travel the world and on long hauls the planes need to be cleaned well and seats in working order."
Pros: "I had the opportunity to send my carry on to the final destination. The flight was overbooked and there was no place to put carry on on the top place."
Cons: "I did not have the chance to choose my seat. I traveled sandwiched by two overweighted guys. I was holding my arms and was literally compressed by the gentlemen. Horrible experience. If I had the chance to choose my seat I would pick the corridor, and had a little less embarrassment and sweating."
Cons: "Super noisy due to being in the last row! Couldn’t even watch a movie. Bathrooms were so dirty and door didn’t close properly. Air vents didn’t reach to aisle seat. Awful."
Pros: "The staff was wonderful and the flight was smooth"
Cons: "N/A"
Pros: "Quick boarding. Nice crew. No food or entertainment so I couldn't rate those. N/A should be a choice"

Pros: "Service was fast and the inflight entertainment is free. Lots of movies to chose from, which is nice for the long flight."

Cons: "Delays, missed a connection, booked a new connection through the app and that one was delayed as well...what was supposed to be a 3.5 hour experience turned into a much longer one. Seats do not accommodate people over 6'2" abiet very poorly."
Pros: "Smooth. Great Staff"
Cons: "No complaints."
Cons: "Economy seating is tight, uncomfortable, and my body was so cramped it was painful!"
Pros: "30 min. early!"
Cons: "Only pretzels"
Pros: "Flight was on time. Crew very friendly. Plane was clean, boarding very organized but I would suggest boarding from the back forward. This would eliminate blocked aisles."
Pros: "Entertainment was fine."
Cons: "Food variety for lactose intolerant. Crew was bare able."
Cons: "The fact that we wait on the tarmac for an extended period of time before we were informed that we had too much fuel so we had to burn off fuel before we could take off."

The business class lounge was chaotic. Too many people. Not enough seats. In flight entertainment was limited. Not enough options and not many english versions

According to the locals, my misfortune was a common one, that Croatia Air has been neglecting to fix for years: The small planes that make the Zagreb to Dubrovnik flight can't actually complete the flight to Dubrovnik many times a year. The plane can barely make it to Dubrovnik when filled to capacity, and when the wind is high, it needs spare fuel to attempt the landing. High winds on small runways mean the plane often fails to land and needs to circle back around and try again. But it doesn't have enough fuel so they don't even try to fly to Dubrovnik, and land halfway across the country in Split instead. Adding a 5 hour bus trip to the end of 48 hours of sleepless flying was Not Good. Being on a bus ride without good air flow where most of the passengers took off their masks while the pandemic still raged was Not Good. Having missed my pickup from the airport and arriving at 4AM was Not Good. There not being enough taxis at the place the bus drops off at 4AM was Not Good. I ended up stumbling through a cold town in the middle of the night for an entire hour, dragging my luggage uphill for two miles. Croatian Airlines needs to fix their Dubrovnik route, so this stops happening. All the locals rolled their eyes and complained of how common this diversion is. Either put a better-sized runway at the airport so that planes can reliably land even in high winds, or put a plane with the fuel reserves to make the repeated attempts needed on this route, or both.

Pros: "Nice crew"
Cons: "More comfortable seats"
Cons: "Better entertainment selection"
Pros: "Smooth and easy flight"
Cons: "Food and drinks served late"
Pros: "Seat super comfortable!"
Cons: "Food service could've been better"
Cons: "No complaints. Good vegan food."
Pros: "Nice crew. Smooth and quick ride which is perfect. No entertainment system or food so cannot comment."
Cons: "Worst airport to board from (Tegel). Waited 30 minutes for luggage in frankfurt airport. Unacceptable luggage handling (may related to airport in Frankfurt)."
Cons: "My luggage did not arrive on the flight from Frankfort to Athens. The Lost Luggage staff was very helpful, but the process took a long, long time. Then when my luggage arrived the next morning, no one was staffing the Gold kiosk, so it took another hour and a half to get my luggage. (We had received an email saying that the luggage would be available at 7:30; no one was there to provide it to us)"
Pros: "Short flight"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "The service was outstanding!"
Cons: "Someone stole my phone charger :("
Cons: "First time took Lufthansa airlines and it was my one of the worst experience. Hospitality is respected when customer is helped when they are in trouble not when they is happily boarded. I have to travel from Milan to San Francisco and I missed flight of my one leg ( milan to frankfurt) of journeyand I went for help and non of the Lufthansa staff at Milan airport helped me. Although my connecting flight was after 12hr they just gave me some random number which to call. I have never experience this in my 8yr of international travel."
Pros: "The service was excellent. On time and very efficient crew."
Cons: "It was completely out of the airline's control but we were very delayed due to bed weather in Frankfurt"
Cons: "Always the same mess in Frankfurt to get into terminal Z, surely waited 30 minutes and almost lost connection. Food quality mediocre at best. Lost luggage, no Lufthansa representative around at baggage claim."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Water was spilled on me by flight attendant. Luggage was left in Frankfort. Did not have clothes or medications, or daily necessities. Must wait 1 1/2 days to get luggage"
Cons: "Nothing. Great flight great crew."
Pros: "Food was great."
Cons: "Entertainment was frustrating"
Cons: "We were charged a rebooking fee by Lufthansa when customs searched luggage causing us to miss connecting flight"
Pros: "The flight was delayed due to air traffic control issues. It didn't make a difference for me but many people missed their connection. However, the crew were all friendly and the Captain was very outgoing and communicative."
Cons: "Late flights are never good."
Pros: "No surprises Plenty of leg space for economy Good food"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "The crew was friendly and the boarding process was fast and simple. No food just snacks and what they had was good. Once I got to the airport there was a wheelchair at the gate and it was great because we were on the opposite side if the airport for our next flight and he was very nice to talk to as we were walking."
Cons: "It was a pretty short flight so no complaints."
Pros: "The in flight crew was great"
Cons: "I arrived a bit late to the airport. 5:15pm for a 6:05p for an international flight. I realize It is very late. I was delayed by donald trump protestors blocking the highway (not your fault). Dulles was a ghost town ( abnormally slow). All I had was carry-on. They said they closed the flight. They quoted me at $1800 for a one way ticket directly from Lufthansa. The original round trip was $900. I declined, sat down for 15 min booked another Lufthansa flight online for $800, checked in and was through security by 5:50. Just in time for my original flights last call. I could have made it easily. Boooo Lufthansa booo."
Pros: "service, good quick flight"
Cons: "late departure in Frankfurt; high noise level of the Embraer plane;s engines; failing AC in the cabin"
Pros: "The attendants, gate agents etc. were all very friendly, but professional. Plane was clean and on time. Not too many announcements over the PA system too! Your inflight movies, choices and other options were very good too."
Cons: "When I flew to Frankfort, Aug. 5, they served me very good lactose free meals. I assumed the notation would be in my reservation and apply to the return flight from Munich on Aug. 20. Not true! The main courses both had cheese in them and the snack was awful! Some kind of chicken (? could have fooled me), in a tough dough. UGH! Couldn't figure out what was in it."
Pros: "We checked in online into row 12 without any error messages about the fact that kids cannot sit there. When we arrived at the airport we were given different e.seats and we could not sit together with our kids."
Cons: "No food, mixed up seating, no entertainment"
Cons: "The on board entertainment sucks you need to upgrade"
Cons: "Flight was delayed want to take off. Luggage did not transfer. Four days before luggage will get to us."
Pros: "Fast boarding. Smooth flight. Good entertainment. Very pleasant."
Cons: "Flight attendant complained about a passanger right in fron of her in a different language. I understand both languages. Completely unprofessional."
Cons: "Their silly 8 kg weight limit for carry on baggage was a surprise and really not consistently enforced. Couldn't go through the one pass customs line adding more than an hour to that part of my trip. Crew couldn't answer questions about dairy in the food."
Cons: "The cabin got a little hot during the night and made it hard to be comfortable. Also, the seats lean pretty far back so I had little room in front of me when the person sitting in front of me leaned their seat all the way back."
Cons: "legroom"
Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Not a thing"
Pros: "Entertainment system helped time pass on 10 hour flight."
Cons: "Again, boarding was late."
Pros: "the woman who helped me at the boarding gate was great! Lounge was really nice!"
Pros: "Senator lounge in franfort was very comfortable, showers were good, french champagne, overall good food on the flight and service level very professional"
Cons: "If the flight was longer I would not have minded I enjoy long haul on lufthansa"
Pros: "there was ice cream for dessert at night"
Cons: "- Delay > 2 hours and no info at gate at the time of planned boarding - unfriendly ground staff and chaotic check in - old 747, "entertainment 1970s standard - crew looked unkempt (like just out of bed), unfriendly to downright rude, my 85 year old mum was ignored repeatedly and ended up not getting enough fluids as a result - 1/8 crew members managed a smile on occasion - rushed meal "service", all they wanted was to disappear to sleep - crammed spaces - while it was announced "we have three different meal choices, you will have at least two choices" - ummm, no, it was pasta. Period. To be fair the pasta turned out ok. The morning dry ham and cheese bun was not, especially without any drink."
Cons: "It was delayed by 9.5 hours!!!!!"
Cons: "Late flight with no explanation for the delay until after boarding left passengers in the dark and in some cases unable to communicate travel changes (when they could have used the airport wifi if notified in a timely manner)."
Cons: "Seats were very cramped in economy. A big factor on a 10 hour flight."
Pros: "Munich airport is convenient and boarding went smoothly"
Cons: "This was an SAA plane, not Lufthansa. I have only had excellent service on Lufthansa. This flight again did not have a functioning entertainment system. I asked for this to be addressed and the SAA crew ignored the request and in the morning looked surprised to find out that several of the TV monitors had not worked at anytime on the flight. Not impressed."
Pros: "I called Lufthansa customer service on 8/10/16 the day before our flight because I wasn't feeling well and was concerned that I might feel worse the next day and have to cancel our flight. The lovely Customer Service rep was so sweet and concerned about my health, answered all my questions about what to do if I needed to cancel, and told me to call back anytime for more help. Also the flight attendants remembered my food allergies and were very attentive on the flights."
Pros: "Clean space, friendly crew"
Pros: "Good flight good staff. Captain explained the route which is nice."
Cons: "No negatives"
Pros: "Food and beverage service was excellent."
Cons: "Cabin temperature was way too hot. Leg room was too small"
Pros: "Food was delicious, service was amazing"
Cons: "The buses to the planes had no ac. It was like a sauna. The plane was not ready for boarding so you were in the bus for 25 minutes. It was in the 90s in the bus before they opened the doors"
Pros: "Great staff."
Cons: "The time it takes to travel. Can't control that."
Cons: "I am writing to you because of the poor service that I experienced with your Operations Manager in Vienna, Paola Contestabile. I travel internationally four to five times a year for the past decade and I have never had such awful service as for my Lufthansa Flight 2329 on Jun 14th under confirmation #62RZK3. I was on my return flight to the US with the exact same carry on baggage that I had left the US with a week earlier- a roller carry on and a backpack for my laptop. This is my standard everywhere in the world that I travel and have never had an issue. I bought a painting on my trip and checked it in. With regards to my carry on, Ms. Contestabile was insistent that I could only have one piece for carry on. I told her to get the baggage rules and I would read them to her. I am a trained lawyer and value the meaning of words and rules. I explained that I am allowed one carry on and a personal item. She argued that my backback is not a personal item and that only a "laptop" is a personal item. I again explained that my personal item was my laptop bag, the same way a purse is a personal item for a lady. She finally relented and allowed me to pass through security and passport check. I assumed that this was the end of her confusion. Little did I expect that while sitting by the gate waiting to board the plane, Ms. Contestabile would emerge again and declare in front of all of the passengers that I would not be allowed to board the flight if I did not check my backpack. I told her this is unacceptable, since she had already cleared me. She said she had changed her mind. I found this response to be ridiculous. When I asked to speak with her manager, she refused to allow it, stating "I am the manager today." Ms. Contestabile even went to the pilot of the plane and convinced him that I was a "safety concern" because I wasn't following her ridiculous interpretation of the rules. This is a pure abuse of power and a threat to true safety when a ground crew member can make such a false and baseless accusation. Luckily, a woman passenger overhearing Ms. Contestabile told me that she could not believe the way she was treating me and offered to carry my bag for me. I am requesting a formal investigation into her actions and appropriate disciplinary procedures to ensure Ms. Contestabile is not allowed to threaten another passenger again."

Delays. Endless walking at Schiphol, most exits closed. No staff or signs.

New 737 and seats too confining

Cons: "Allow business passenger to use front bathroom."
Pros: "Salimos a tiempo . El business es muy confortable"
Cons: "La comida horrible . No se limpian los baños"
Pros: "Crew is excellent, polite and personal!"
Cons: "Plane is super old and outdated. Comfort seat is not, comfortable, very tight. TV screen is not good quality, with the old controls on a handset. No touch, no 1/8 inch audio jack (it has the old 3 holes one). Wifi for streaming freezes every other second. Just make a face lift to the plane, everything else is good."
Pros: "Klm's consistantly high standards in everything they do."
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Impressive service... amazing crew, very friendly and professional"
Pros: "The crew tried to be helpful but were equally frustrated with the ground crew."
Cons: "Follow your own policies. Allow people to board (economy plus) with their hand luggage who have followed all the rules and chosen a seat in the front of the plane. My daughter and my KLM approved baggage were taken by the boarding crew while allowing other passengers to go with more than allowed"
Pros: "Customer care was super supportive"
Cons: "Inflight sandwiches"
Pros: "Crew was great and helpful despite oversight in my special meal."
Cons: "Special meal request was overlook. I did not mind so much as eating less does some good! It is human to err!"
Pros: "Crew helpful. Food good."
Cons: "Better range of movies please"
Pros: "Great crew, comfortable seating with enough leg room."
Cons: "Provide dinner before getting to joburg, instead of a snack. Flight arrives late so dinner would be appreciated"
Pros: "Friendly crew, upgraded seat was worthwhile"
Cons: "More snacks in between meals,"
Pros: "Our flight was delayed in Bejing, than we loosed the booked flight of KLM. When we arrived in Amsterdam, we get the recheked in flight."
Cons: "Doesn't"
Cons: "Late departure. Rush to connect."
Pros: "Crew was very engaging and service was good."
Cons: "My seat was horrible. Right at the door, crammed, and no place to store my carry-on luggage."
Pros: "Crew was ok."
Cons: "Screens need a serious upgrade, my seat didn’t recline all the way nor could it be restored to an upright position. Not very comfortable and I paid for a seat upgrade."
Cons: "We were changed from KLM to Airiltalia without any information sent so only because I tried to check in did I find out the flight on KLM was cancelled and we were changed to Airitalia. The Airitalia flight was very mediocre."
Pros: "Crew was nice and efficient"
Cons: "Economy seats don’t recline enough."
Pros: "Time was excellent even considering a connection delay they had. Very polite crew members. Good entertainment options."
Cons: "Cabin was crowded. Leg room was scarce, short seating space. Almost no room for sleeping if you're not a frequent economy traveler."
Pros: "We got to Amsterdam on time"
Cons: "1. Paying for the seats we chose...that will never happen again...I'll fly another airline first. 2. The food was terrible. I have flown KLM for years, this was not what I expected. 3. The plane was very dirty"
Pros: "Friendly crew! More legroom, good entertainment and food was great! Smooth landings pretty much on time."
Cons: "Boarding could be better"
Pros: "Very pleasant, professional crew"
Cons: "Very slow check in. Mainly because other passengers obviously don't read instructions re: weight/contents of cabin bags etc. Would be helpful if there was additional staff to deal with them away from check in desk. This would mean that others did not have to queue for 25 minutes because the check in girls also had to deal with them"
Pros: "Nice flight ...was comfortable travel ...good food.Thanks"
Cons: "No such things"
Cons: "KLM staff in the Prague airport were some of the rudest humans I have ever met. So incredibly uncaring and outright mean."
Pros: "Arrived Early!"
Cons: "Left Late :-)"
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: "Nothing"
Pros: "Good flights. Good prices."
Pros: "Just great crew."
Cons: "Not comfortable at all and will not book KLM again."
Cons: "They stole my money"
Pros: "Helpful and smiling cabin crew."
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."
Cons: "I don’t like the limited choice of drinks on these short KLM flights."
Pros: "Crew was courteous and polite! Entertainment system had some great movies at no additional cost."
Cons: "Poor communication between delta, KLM and Air France meant that I couldn’t check in online and get a digital boarding pass. Furthermore I couldn’t use the check-in kiosks because my name was listed as Reidmr instead of Reid, which meant that my boarding pass did not match my passport. Overall this caused unnecessary delays that were compounded by the fact that I couldn’t use my TSA precheck. My main problem on the plane was that I had to struggle to get water served to me. It’s always so dry on planes and I would have liked to be able to get more than one tiny glass of water at a time. Also, would have loved a window at my window seat. Plus no WIFI!?"
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."
Cons: "Service from airline host Poorly maintained plane Bad food Old entertainment"
Pros: "was very quick"
Pros: "Thankful for coffee being served without charge. Not all airlines do that."
Cons: "Two hours delay in the start."
Pros: "Flight crew was pleasant and attentive. Seats were comfortable for economy as well. We were allowed to check in extra baggage for free at check in which really helped since we would be catching a connecting flight in Amsterdam"
Cons: "That I was forced to check my baggage. I never received a chain ticket for my luggage. The flight has a 32 hour layover and KLM lost my luggage and it was not found until a week after my arrival back home. I still have not received my bag at this time. The boarding crew was manually tracking who boarded and who didn't. It was a cluster."
Pros: "They were awesome."
Pros: "Crew service"
Cons: "Flight delayed."
Pros: "Overall, my trip to Cardiff via Amsterdam was smooth and delightful. I've flown a few short trips this summer and I was pleasantly surprised to find KLM still offered complimentary snacks. What a refreshing change!"
Cons: "There was no entertainment which is why I assigned that category only one star. The boarding process in Amsterdam could have been a bit smoother. Announcements were no clear."
Pros: "Fortunately, the plane was not full, so people could spread out a bit to create extra room. The food was really good! (surprisingly)."
Cons: "KLM's new configuration for this type of plane made the seats even narrower than before. While leg room was reasonable, the 3 abreast seating meant a lot of discomfort, especially in the row right in front of the restroom."
Pros: "Enough space good wine and on time"
Cons: "Nothing"
Cons: "Flight delayed ... Myself and three other colleagues didn't have our luggage show up from KLM flight from Amsterdam to Brussels...even though all of our luggage was labeled "priority". Once in customer service line, we looked and saw that many of the other passengers on our flight also never received their luggage. We estimated that 20-25% of the people on that flight did not receive their luggage as they were in line with us for the same problem. Hard to understand how so many pieces of luggage could have been overlooked and not loaded on our flight. Obviously there is a huge gap in their quality system to ensure mistakes like this are prevented."
Pros: "Good food, good entertainment system, comfortable seating."
Cons: "Only one toilet working in business class. A crew member told me that it was a decision to fly with only one toilet to ensure no delay. There was a disgusting stench of sewerage for the complete flight from Amsterdam to Johannesburg. This was in all likelihood due to the broken toilet on the left side."
Pros: "On-time Quick boarding Friendly staff"
Cons: "Only pre-security lounge (Air France) that is open till 19:00."
